Living in My Own Little World

Many can tell when something is wrong with me. I tend to be a pretty easy person to read. Although nothing major is wrong with me, I have been in a funk lately. I funk about life, a funk about writing, a funk about work, and maybe most of this is due to my lack of sleep. I notice on the nights my sons go to sleep on time, no later than 8:30pm for me then I am happier and have this positive energy about me. Those kind of nights only happen a couple times a week, if I am lucky.

Lately I have been feeling like I am running in circles and the world is just spinning faster and faster. It has been difficult for me to slow my talking down and I am rambling more again. I know what I need to cure the funk I am in; sleep, exercise and socializing with adults. Those three always seem to help! Heck even if I don’t get more sleep as long as I get my daily exercise in and get out with adults every couple of weeks I am good to go!

I keep putting so many other people before me, I don’t know why I do this, it’s just my nature it seems. As I watch how putting others before me makes me feel, I realize it is time for me to start focusing on me. My children always come first, they need to but if I am neglecting me then they are in a sense being neglected of the positive mother they deserve!

It’s time to start putting me somewhat first because it’s important to the positive energy this household normally has!

I Ran Over My Cat

I have two cats, one is called Smokey and his the old guy around the house. He is great, simply lounges about and sticks to himself. The other cat is about two years old and is called Baby Kitty. Baby Kitty is a pain in the arse if you know what I mean. Always on counters and tables, doesn’t respond to spray bottle discipline or anything. The cat drives me bonkers, but the kids love him and so he stays because he is our family.

Now that I have a country setting off of a main highway I am able to let the Baby Kitty out of the house to be outdoors and he is loving it! The issue at hand is that he is partially deaf, which I recently found out. I went to leave the other day and felt a thump when Baby Kitty went running off to the deck.

I checked on Baby Kitty and he was limping. The back right leg seemed messed up. I figured I better take him to the vets because, well, that is the right thing to do. After spending $200 on an xray and steroid prescription for Baby Kitty all the vet told me was that nothing is broken and he just needs to rest and be in a confined area so he can heal on his own.

This is one expensive cat that I don’t love as much as the other one, but I guess in the long run I am glad to know he is alive and I didn’t break anything when I ran him over.

Mom’s the Word on Dinner Video: How do you spice up your pasta?

Ragu wants to know how do you spice up your pasta. Here’s the video and head on over to Ragu’s Facebook Page to let them know how you spice up your pasta!

I am a simple person with my pasta. I actually put crushed red pepper on my spaghetti. I also love to make three cheese manicotti with my daughter, she helps stuff the shells with me.  Simple spaghetti with sauce on top works great for dinner for my two boys, they eat it right up with some Texas toast with cheese.

Head on over to Mom’s the Word on Dinner, Ragu’s Facebook page to add your own ideas to the discussion!
