Embarassment for years to come.

Just thought I should blog about this now before I forget all the awesome details and I don't get a chance to embarass Austin down the road..

My suitcase from my trip in April is still sitting in my bedroom (I'm hanging my head in shame here) and Austin got into it this morning and found probably the only thing left in there, a Tampon.

He opened the package,pulled out the tampon, and started giggling, laughing, and swinging it around by the string. He ran around swinging that sucker!! Part of me wanted to take it away, but really, It's a piece of cotton, what damage could it do? (other then the embarassing stories when he's older) So I let him play. If it flew out of his hands he laughed even harder! He was having fun.

Then he decided that it was a rocket. He kept saying Rocket! Rocket! Rocket! and tried putting it down the back of my top. Every time I took it out he would say "No Mommy! Rocket!" and put it back.

Now, he's pretending it's a crayon and is coloring all the pictures in his story book.

Oh the imaginations of kids.

*EDIT* Now he has removed it from the aplicator and has the applicator pieces on his fingers yelling "pow pow pow pow!" I may die from laughter

A Sunday tale

Our Sunday was lots of fun!! Oh wait, go back, start again, and read that with the most sarcasm you can think of. It started off well.

We headed down to ikea for shopping and lunch. We started out well. Lunch ended with someone not wanting to sit and spitting meatballs on the floor. I promise you that was not me. Then, that same pint sized cranky pants started, wait, continued with his disapproving no face, and pointedly told me that mommy is not cool enough to push the cart.

After we made a few stops for the spare bedroom renos. Well let me tell you. That's when the true fun starts. At Rona, he decided to pull paint brushes off the shelf. Wandered around trying to pull all the paint chips off the shelf. In the paint roller aisle he got mad at me and hit me with his puppy dog. I took it away, he cried. I said we had to move down the aisle and he refused. I had to pull him along.

Then we go to home depot. Again with the damn paint chips, he decided that he didn't want to walk down the aisle and thought if he threw himself down on the ground it would work. It didn't. I just dragged him down the aisle. I finally get what I needed, waiting to leave, pick up Austin so he would stop running away. Well when I picked him up it must have shifted his pullup because there in home depot, my son pissed on me. Sigh. So we go to leave and it is raining like there's no tomorrow. Here I am, running through the rain, my side covered in pee, austin's pants soaked, and trying to carry everything.

After that it was home dinner bath and bed. Oh what a day. Now my forearm is hurting and I'm trying to figure if it's from the stupid goofy carts from ikea or if it's from dragging my son through the home depot. Oh what a day.

Swagbucks update

I figured it was time for a swagbucks update.

I started using Swagbucks on Dec 9th 2010. Since then I have earned a total of 4,546 swagbucks. In just over 6 months I have accumulated enough swagbucks to get $45 worth of amazon gift cards (and I currently have 43 in my account)

At first I started saving up all my swagbucks to redeem all my gift cards at once (I was aiming for $100 worth) but then realized there are some rules to the gift cards. I can order a max of 2 per day, and a max of 5 per month. So I ordered my 5 last month and finished off my swagbucks this month.

I have been ordering gift cards (because ships to canada and has WAY more selection and huge price difference in the same items) and within 10-14 days after you order your card, Swagbucks will put the amazon gift card code in your account. You copy the code from your account and put it into your amazon account and bam! you've got cash to spend.

How does one manage to get that many swagbucks? Searching searching searching. And referrals. For every swagbuck I earn (up to 1,000) the person who referred me gets matching swagbucks. Also, I search everything. I know how to get to blogger, and twitter and facebook, but I search them. Instead of google, I search swagbucks. I have the toolbar installed and that makes it so much easier for me to remember to search through swagbucks.

Do I even make sense?

Sometimes I wonder this. Most of my previous posts ( some more recent ones have been done on my cell phone) occur in my bed while falling asleep. I get in bed and think, ooh! I should write a blog post. I start off great but about halfway through I start to get really tired and blogging takes so much longer because I'm dozing off to sleep or spacing out while writing some great thought provoked something or other..... Anyways, then I finish the post, hit publish a d forget to co
E back the next day to see if I made sense. So, if you are reading the blog and it starts to get a little off course at the end then I most likely wrote it in bed. My apologies.

I totally had the idea for this post because I wanted to write up a blog post but figured I would fall asleep before I was finished. Boy wan I right. I'm totally dozing right now. Haha! I'm off to bed now, thanks for reading...

True story:

I can cook, sometimes I just don't have the creativity and knowledge to do it.

When I do, most times it turns out great.

Tuesday I had to go get dave from the airport and I had bought a pork roast a few months ago. The thought of pulled pork sandwiches made me salivate. So, I threw it in the crock pot. However, I know very little about crock pot cooking. I once put water in the bottom of the crock pot, you know under the removable dish. Yup, I totally did that. And covered my kitchen in water. I thought I had to, so I did.

So tues morning I threw the roast in. I knew I had to do something else. I wanted bbq sauce in with it so I dumped some on. I realized I should have probably waited on the bbq sauce so I added some water too. I really had no idea how it was going to turn out. I crossed my fingers and hoped it wouldn't be disastrous when I got home from the airport.

But, despite being a little dry on the bbq sauce (overall I used a whole bottle) it turned out delicious. And I am happy about that!
