I'm feeling cranky today. So its time for another list:

I'm thankful for......

*Rain! We need it desperately and it has rained off and on all week.

*My 'new' couch. We bought a 3 seater and 2 recliners off my sister and bil and it is fab-u-lous.

*Sleeping toddlers. Ethan slept through last night til 8.30am (although he didn't go to sleep until like 11pm) and the night before he slept through til 5am before coming to our bed then going back to sleep until mid morning. Oh and he's finally gone off to sleep now for his day time nap....he seems to be resisting those but i still need them!!!

*Ice cream and cheesecake to eat when i feel cranky

*Warmer weather. I generally love cold weather but this year i'm just not feeling the love. I'm so ready for it to be spring.

*Tax time!!! and the chance to pay off our debt and buy some maternity clothes! YAY!!!!

*My sister for giving Ethan a bag of hand-me-down winter clothes from her 2 boys. She just saved me heaps of money!

*My Dh for calling me from work just to say hi (even though i was cranky at him for calling at naptime)

*The Library - if i didn't have books to read i think i would be going mad. It saves my sanity, seriously.

The good, the bad, the ugly and the funny....

My experiences from the last few days:

The good: I decided to actually make a proper effort in toilet training Ethan and so i got the potty out this morning and he did 4 wees in it!!!

The bad: the 3 really big wees that he didn't do in the potty(he's such a piddle pot, seriously he wee'd 7 times in the space of like 2 hours), getting told i must be having a big baby because my tummy is poking out so much( please tell me i'm not THAT big!), stupid telemarketer that wouldn't take no for an answer so i told him i was going to hang up now and then did.

The ugly: Trying to stop Ethan from throwing around a wee soaked tissue that he put in his potty....and getting it on me. ewwwwwwwwwwwwww

The funny: At Enrichment on Thursday night we were talking about funerals and wills and basically being prepared. We had a Funeral Director come and talk to us about funerals and in the middle of his presentation Ethan stood up on the seat next to me, threw his hands in the air and said(very loudly) "Hooray!!!!" Lucky he's cute. ;)

you know its winter when.......

You get out of bed at 7.45am and its colder in your kitchen then it is in your refrigerator. Yep, that was this morning. The thermometer read 4 degrees celcius and i checked the fridge and its set at 5 degrees. It was a balmy 6 degrees in our living room. We also found this on our windscreen at 8.50am when we went off to church.

Big deal, you may say. Well it is to us considering what part of the country we live in! lol

Isn't blogger block horrible. I feel like i've fallen off the blogger world but i will try and get back on. Please fogive me.
But i would like to address the few ideas suggested to me by my loyal fans, aka those who gave me suggestions. lol

Favourite colour - my favourite colour is red. I wrote about it a little while back. But my fav colour used to be purple, then changed it because every one seemed to like purple and i wanted something different so i changed it to a colour that no one i knew liked - red. Thankfully red is a great colour!

First Kiss - This is kinda embarrassing, well embarrassing because its a little sad. lol I had my first kiss when i was 23 years old. Yes, i know, i'm a late bloomer but some things just can't be helped. The first person i kissed is my dh. It was on our second date. Right by a waterfall. I thought it was gross but more pleasant with practice. ;) It was also right after our first kiss that dh told me he loved me.

Baby names - oh boy. This is a toughie. Since we already have a boy its hard because we already picked the one name that we love. So now we have to pick the second best and how does someone do that?! We did narrow it down to either Nicholas or Isaac. But i've gone of Isaac and dh tells me this morning that he's gone off i guess now we don't have any names!!!! We are thinking maybe we should just call him '#2' or 'Ethan the second'. What do you think?? ;)

Free time - I seem to have a lot of this in varying degrees. Once my housework is done then i don't have alot to do. I am not involved with any community activities, my ds is not in school so no school commitments. I do spend more time then i should on the computer though lately that has been hampered(good thing too) by my ds who doesn't like me on here unless he is on here too. I introduced him to a kids website that he loves, so unless that is on he hates me being near the computer....which means.....less computer time for me and more time for something else.
I play alot with my ds. Since he has noone else to play with, i'm it! I also love to sew. I am trying to get my quota of maternity clothes up. I love making maternity skirts!! I've made 4 so far and i'm always on the lookout for cheap fabric so i can make some more.
I also love to read and am trying to read more church related material to increase my spirituality.
So at the moment that is what i'm doing with my free time - playing, sewing and reading....oh and computer stuff ;)
