a post full of {brackets}




I can not even tell you how happy I am that it's Saturday. That means I survived the week, people! Holla! Crazy, busy week, but right now, I am sitting in a quiet house, by myself, drinking coffee, and reading blogs! Could not be more perfect:)





D took the boys to a  farm show. Like usual, I was torn between going with them or having time by myself. It's always been a struggle for me. I want to be included in all of their memories. If you have been reading my blog you know that I have some mommy issues & one part that has always kinda haunted me, is that I have very few memories that include all of us as a family{of 4}. My mom rarely took part on any family outings, except on Sunday's, so it has been overly important{does that make sense?}to me that I partake in every family outing that I can. But, if I don't take time for myself, then I'm a bitch grump & nobody likes a bitch grump, so I am learning how to keep creating memories & have time for myself. Balance{i think this is becoming my favorite word.}
I'm loving how our days are spent outside now. Thank you mother nature. I'm thinking of buying a bike. Calgary is such a bike city, well for that matter it's a very physically active city. It's kinda funny, actually{considering the other two cities I lived it...not the most physically active}. I have realized that the older I get the more activities I do, that I once swore I would never do{pffttt, please why would I ever buy a bike...I have car...we have transit}. I have faint memories of elders{hehe}saying to me over & over "u just wait girly...wait until your older...wait until your a mama..." right, right...and yet here I be. Turning into an elder{plllleeeeasssee, I'm no elder}!! Ha.

                                                          

I ran into a lady that I worked with while I was pregnant with Wy. I hadn't seen her since he arrived & apparently she didn't know that I had another boy, because after we said our hello's & I introduced her to the boys she said{ and I swear word for word}"awww...u had another boy. are you going to try for the girl?"{this question seriously makes me clench my teeth...pet peeve question}I told her no we are done & finished & she said "oh Sherri, I'm so sorry you had two boys & no girl. Every women deserves a girl!! A boy & a girl is just the perfect balance...a million dollar family" {like what the hell, seriously, did u just say balance, did you just steal my word??} I felt a dark cloud come over my face as I tried to smile my way out of it....I said something like oh well, I'm pretty happy how it turned out it soooo....very nice running into you....let me just take my unbalanced family, away from your percfect little balanced one.....I don't know. Maybe I'm odd, but I'm happy having two boys. And honestly, I do not feel that I am missing out on anything. This is my path, my journey & I am meant to have two boys & I  feel very blessed for that. So there. And really, thanks for making things....
                                                            
With the nicer weather I am dying to get dressed up & go dancing!! I haven't been dancing since October{brutal}& I'm feeling the need. Who knows when it will happen, but I am so hoping that it does soon. Not tonight though. Tonight I have a date with Dale Jr, baby...the hubs & I love when the Nascar race is on Saturday night... pathetic, eh?!
Hugs & love

I have heard that this is the first nice spring day up there, so glad it is finally hitting ya'll! And that lady, can you give me her name and address, and when I am up in Canada, I will go punch her for you. Seriously, what is wrong with her?! Blech.
I hope you enjoyed some 'you' time :)

Oh my gosh, how freaking rude of her!! I hate when people ask people that. I have a friend who has had three girls and people are constantly asking her "Are y'all just dying for a boy?" She gets really frustrated.
