Coming close to the big 100!!!!!New Years and much more!!!

My 100th post is coming up very soon. This is Number 99 so one more post to go. I will have to do a giveaway in a day or so.I just have to think of what I would like to giveaway for my big 100th!!!!
Happy New Years to everyone!!!!! I hope everyone has a wonderful night and the next year is the best year any of us has ever seen.
I will be putting up some new pictures of baby Jack in a couple days and I have another year of wonderful blogging and picture sharing ahead of me.
If anyone wonders what I will be doing tonight,I will be sleeping when the New Year ball drops.I go to bed at 10 now because that is what time little Jackson goes to sleep.My hubby may not be playing tonight which will make this our first New Years together. In the past 9 years he has had a gig with one of his bands,sometimes I would go watch but we never shared a New Years kiss or even said Happy New Years to one another. Too bad we will be in bed sleeping when we finally get to spend the last day of the year together.
My Grandfathers birthday would have been today. He passed away 2 1/2 years ago.I miss him today. I loved him very much. He raised me and my sister, he was the best father in the world.

a question for people with babies

I have not been able to find much time for blogging lately.Jack has my attention most the time.
Jack is just now 5 months old but he screams like crazy if you ever put him down.My family has to pass him around so we can do anything like eat or use the bathroom.Is this normal??I do not know if he is actually spoiled or if most babies never get put down when they are awake.I don't know many ladies with babies so I would love to hear from anyone that knows about babies.If I should put him down and let him cry how much crying is okay before I should pick him up again??He cries real tears as soon as I try to put him in a seat or on the bed and he screams like he is in pain even though I know he is not in pain,just lonely. What do you think??

My sweet angel boy




When husbands get lazy

Here is a new picture of Jack.Has nothing to do with what I am writing about but it is just so cute!
My husband is a terrific guy but he has one big flaw,he is lazy.It's not like he has a 9 to 5 job to go to,he is a musician and he works a few hours a day.Every time I say we should go somewhere or we need to do something in the house he makes an excuse or falls asleep.It drives me crazy!!!!

Jack's new fear

Jack has developed a fear of strangers already and he is only 4 and a half months old!Last night I took him to visit some friends and when they tried to hold him and love on him he screamed and cried like he was being killed.This made my lady friends feel bad and they kept trying to make him like them but it only caused more crying from Jack.I felt panicked and tried to make excuses that he was just tired but also I just wanted to grab him and leave because I felt so sad that he was that scared.
I have a picture from last night of him crying in the arms of one of my friends.I will put it up later.Poor Jack,I never knew babies developed fears of strangers at such a young age.

Do you feel guilty at Christmas?

I always feel like I have never bought enough presents or that the gifts I did buy are not the right ones.I feel like I don't make enough food or the food that everyone wants.I just end up feeling worried and unhappy when Christmas comes around.I never have enough money and I never decorate enough.
I have great Christmas spirit but I still just wish every Christmas could be prettier then the last.I get all excited thinking about the holidays and all these warm feelings of my childhood come to me but when the holiday gets here I just do not get those feelings anymore.I guess I am way too old to enjoy Christmas with that same childish wonder but it would be nice.
Do any of you get the Christmas Blues??

Dairy products kill me


Last night while I was sleeping so peacefully in my warm bed I awoke to terrible pain.I sat right up,sweat was pouring down my face and I felt like I was going to barf right then and there.I got up and ran to the bathroom when the green apple splatters took over.I hate to saying like this but I was pissing out of my butt!!!!!!
I spent about a good hour in the bathroom before trying to go back to bed only to end up back in the bathroom just moments later.
What was happening to me???Well,I got a bad case of the cheese!I am allergic to dairy and I have been my whole life but I have a secret love affair with dairy products and sometimes dairy doesn't want to see me anymore so I get dumped,literally!
Anyway, some people are lactose intolerant but I got the real allergy.It's a hard life for us people that want nothing but dairy and end up with the barfs and the poops.
Just thought I would share that with you.

My husband is a great Dad.


I do not tell Richard often enough that he is a stand up kind of guy and a wonderful father.
He is a wonderful person too.
Never in my life have I ever met a man that is as nice as he is.He is never mean,never acts all tough and old fashioned.
I really like my Richard.
Richard gets up at night with the baby,he changes diapers all throughout most days,If Jack gets shots I can see Richard getting upset while he stands in the back ground.
My Richard is a talented singer and musician.He can play any instrument and write songs all day.
He never complains,is always faithful,will not argue with anyone and he is good to his parents!
I can't tell you how wonderful he is,I could go on forever.He is just one of the best things that has ever happened to me.

We need your help

I found out from a blog I follow that a very sick little boy who is getting a wish from Make a Wish foundation needs our help.
Christopher Bedgood's only wish is to have lots of Christmas cards sent to him this year.So, to give this child his simple last wish please send a postcard or some kind of Christmas card to the address below and maybe write a small blog about it asking others to do the same.

Video of Jack with Santa

Christmas Cheer

Here I am with my little baby boy!!
Here is Jack with My husband.Jack was having some teething issues.

Here is Jack sitting in Santa's lap. Santa was played by a really nice man that used to live in my neighborhood. The beard is real but dyed.Jack was not afraid of him until my niece started screaming and crying,then he decided he was scared too.

It's nice to see friends

Here is a picture of me with all my lady friends during Thanksgiving.I wish we could all get together more often but so many of us live far away.Jack was very sleepy in my lap in this picture.

Crappy giveaway

I won a giveaway to Magnet Street Baby and it was for 100 bucks!! Wow, I thought that was so awesome. However, I just found out that you have to pay shipping and shipping is very expensive at Magnet Street baby. So, they just basically told me they would pass it on to some one else and I end up with nothing.I am getting tired of winning giveaways that are not real. I have won things that never came even though I kept emailing them and they would not respond.Also winning giveaways that do not tell you specific facts or catches to winning the giveaway. I really wanted to make magnets for Christmas to give out to my family and didn't get any made because I won this giveaway which really turned out to be a discount.The prices are way too high any way. I checked out other card and magnet making places with much better prices and way cheaper shipping.
Oh well, I just wanted to get that off my chest.
Have any of you ever won a giveaway and did not get the prize or it turned out not as you thought it would?? If so please leave a comment to make me feel better.

All I want for Christmas is to keep my teeth

All of my teeth have cavities right now.The cold air outside sends throbbing pain through my teeth.Cold and hot drinks make me cringe.We just do not have the money right now to get all the dental work I need.We barely have enough money to fix one tooth.
Eating nothing but sugar all my life must be the fault of my tooth decay but it is too late now to bother with where the blame comes from.
Maybe one day I can't get a nice set of dentures!!Ha ha!! Lets hope that it doesn't get to that point!

Men are hard to shop for but my sister had a good idea

Here is a picture of my husband for you to look at before you read my blog entry.Isn't he a sweet looking guy?? He is the nicest man I have ever known!Hey,he was really born a man too!!! I never thought men could be so nice.
My sister had a great idea about what to give the husband for Christmas.Make a coupon booklet for things like a free back massage,a coupon for sex,one for a meal made just the way he likes it,one to let him win an arguement.You know,that sort of thing.That is a great idea,huh?? You could make it to fit your own relationship or you could make a booklet for another family member other than your husband.Just do not hand the booklets to the wrong person.Could be bad if you gave your father in-law your husbands booklet!Ha ha!!
Anyway, what would your husband like in a coupon booklet if you made one for him??? Let me know,don't be shy!
