I stopped over at the simple woman blog and found this and thought it would be fun.

FOR TODAY July 31, 2008 ...
Outside My Window... It is dark, but somewhere out there my garden is thriving. For this I am thankful.

I am thinking... Actually tonight I am not trying to think much. My brain needs a rest as does my body.

I am thankful for... For my miracle babies

From the kitchen... Nothing came out of today. My husband worked late and we had subs!
I am wearing... A brown tank and tan cargo summer uniform :)

I am creating... Not enough...projects need to be finished soon!!

I am going... To bed, hopefully soon.

I am reading... 19 minutes by Jodi Picoult

I am hoping... That the heat wave they say is coming doesnt.

I am hearing... The hum of the AC and my dog's annoying tags on his collar!

Around the house... Are the people and things I love.

One of my favorite things... Is being with my boys all day long and a good cup of coffee.

Monday, July 28, 2008 shopping was fun!

For real. It was like a dream come true. Just recently have I even attempted to do this with the 2 kids. I had no clue once the turtle was out of the infant carrier how I was going to do it. Where do you put them??? Who invented shopping carts? A man im sure.... Anyway, I would always go at night or drag my poor mother in law with me. But I found a cart that not only hold 2 kids but if I wanted to (which I dont!) 3 kids!! I love it. First off, as I am walking in to the store, a older woman asks me if I need help?? Huh, me?? Never has anyone offered that, sometimes people dont even hold doors! I wanted to hug this woman. I didnt accept help, but still. My kids were like angels the whole time. I actually strolled around the store after I got everything we needed.
Came home and made dinner. I made zucchini latkes..omg!!! They were so so good!! I will post the recipe tomorrow so all 2 of you can have it!

Potty Training Boys?

I am thinking about giving this a go. Anyone have any hints or ideas? What worked for you?

Im on my way out to the dr. In March of 07 when I had my youngest I was finally diagnosed with endometriosis (long story, I will try to post about later). Ive been having a lot of problems lately so I am finally going to see what I can do about it. I do not want to go on birth control pills for it. So, I have a feeling that will be the only option but I will see. Will update later...

Fresh Starts

Being a Stay at Home Mom is hard...Dont you agree?? I think just being a mom is hard. But my thing is being lonely. I have tried to make new friends because alot of my friends are at different stages (mostly have older kids). I have joined a moms forum and tried meeting local moms. But I have come to the conclusion, I dont fit in with most of them. I have always been a misfit. So, I left that forum. I dont have time or patience for the pettiness that comes with it. I am done trying. I am just hoping something will lead me to friends that are more like me. I know the area I live in is kinda hard. Its a bit of a snobby area. I have met a few great women in the area and for this, im thankful.
What have you done to make friends in your area?

Summer Lovin'

We are loving summer...but to be honest with you, the humidity on the Jersey Shore is not nice! Today was a perfect day. Upper 80s and low humidity. We've been hitting the beach after dinner and it is a blast.
Ive been working on 2 scrapbooks (a paid gig!) for twin boys. Its hard to find the time, but I fit it in.
A pic from the beach a few nights ago, couldn't resist! (will add later..blogger is being a PITA!!)
