Downward Facing London Bridge?

Okay so many of you know I've been under a lot of stress lately and have been ordered by my doctor to take it easy. I've been exercising for months now and the endorphins are a wonderful way to help me feel better. I've decided to try to de-stress and I've added meditation and yoga to the mix. I found two pod casts that I love! Only one issue with the meditation one... I never get to the end without falling asleep. I listen to it at night while Ronnie rocks Brandon to sleep and he always has to wake me up to get in bed. I have no idea how the meditation is supposed to end. Oh well I guess it means I'm de-stressed right? LOL

The yoga hobby... Now that's a fun one too. (Check out the Yogamazing podcast.. It's seriously worth downloading!) The issue with yoga is that the kids think it's playtime. Alexis imitates me and laughs and falls over. Brandon thinks the downward facing dog position is a new type of London Bridge game and crawls under me. Jordan hollers at me to "get up Momma"! I think she thinks I'm hurt because I'm lying on the floor. ROFLOL It's not very relaxing, but my muscles feel better and my flexibility has improved greatly. It's hard to OHM when all of that is going on though... Did you know it's possible to lay on your back and touch your toes to the floor over your head? It is! AND I can do it!!! Ronnie is pretty impressed too. LOL

Speaking of Ronnie, we went and got our living wills and health care power of attorney done. For those of you who haven't done this, I highly recommend it. It was a really hard decision to decide to take the power out of Ronnie's hands if I am every brain dead and in a coma. I signed a paper declaring I want to be unplugged if two doctors say there's no chance of me ever recovering. I don't want Ronnie burdened with that decision or the medical bills if he decides not to unplug me. He signed the same paper. This way our wishes will be followed. We also set Alexis and Jordan up with special needs trusts because of the possibility that if they inherit from us dying that that their medical benefits will cease.

Enough of the morbid dying talk! I have another pet peeve! (Surprise! LOL) On the pop station that I listen to on the radio they keep playing "Blasts From the Past". The NOT funny thing is that the songs they are playing are songs I listened to in High School. Songs from Nirvana are not oldies, and neither is Creed darn it! Since when did the 1990's turn into music history? Oldies. Sheesh! What are they going to call them when I am 40?

Thanks for listening to me ramble...

Top 5 Things to Remember

5 things to remember when you go to Disney World...

1. The sun in Florida is HOT. I don't care if you live in Louisiana. The sun in Florida, It's HOTTER. What? You forgot your sunscreen? Uh oh.

2. Remember when you pack your bag to go into the park that you will have to carry that same bag out of the park at the end of the day. Plus 17 shopping bags of Disney merchandise. Plus 2 sleeping kids who weigh over 30 lbs. *Ugh!*

3. Do not make faces at the Disney employees. It's just not nice. They aren't allowed to make faces back!

4. Meeting Jojo from Jojo's Circus really is the best thing in a 3 year old's life. Who cares if you are her Mom? Jojo is better. LOL

5. Do not suggest to your husband that he stop and ask directions in the parks. After all how hard can it be to find Muppet Vision 3D? 1 hour hard!


Disney World!

First I just had to share this cartoon I found in one of my Baby Center emails. ROFLOL So true!I promised to blog about Disney World so here goes! We were planning to stay in the All Star Movies, but when we got there we found out that we'd been upgraded to the Carribean Beach resort through the Year of a Million Dreams promotion! Pretty cool huh? Here's a picture of the hotel... Here is Jordan meeting her absolute favorite character... Jojo from Jojo's Circus and her lion Goliath of course.
Alexis was NOT impressed by the characters. She declared that "It was just some man in a suit." Lovely huh? She was however surpremely impressed with Test Track and Thunder Mountain. I was also quite impressed with Thunder Mountain RR. It was my first roller coaster of any type and I LOVED it!!! I can't wait to go on the Expedition Everest ride next time we go back. I could turn in to a roller coaster officianado!

Here is a picture of us doing another thing I loved... SHOPPING! I got a sweet new Eeyore shirt that says... Frown. Complain. Repeat. How much does that rock?! LOL Here you see Ronnie, Alexis and Brandon in front of one of the stores.

All in all it was a great trip despite everyone getting sick while we were there! Hauling 3 kids around Disney World was an adventure to say the least. I also need to add that both Jordan and Brandon HATED the characters and the fireworks. That was pretty interesting! My ear drums may never be the same again from all of the screaming.
I've been sick... I found out that I have an MRSA infection, probably contracted at the hospital when I had my surgery in October. Pretty lovely huh? Ugh!
Valentine's Day was interesting here... Ronnie didn't get me anything, and then he said he thought "It wasn't a big deal." My feelings were really hurt and I let him know. Well a few days ago I got flowers in the mail. The card read: "I'm a retard. I'm sorry. Please forgive me." He's such a mess!

Alexis has lost her bottom two front teeth and we are calling her toothless. She finds this hilarious. We had a huge discussion about the Tooth Fairy and how she gets in the house. Ummm... she has a special key that works on everyone's house. LOL
Bubba will be 1 soon! I can't believe how this year has flown by. Stick around for toothless pictures and birthday pictures soon!
