Worm Juice

What a day. So far, I have managed to:
1) fend off a psycho squirrel that kept climbing up the window screen and trying to eat/terrify the cat and dog
2) clean up the psycho squirrel's poop that he left for me (isn't he nice??)
3) lock myself, and Ayden, out of the house while cleaning up the poop from the aforementioned squirrel
4) successfully break into my house
and 5) play with worms...for a VERY long time.
Why play with worms you ask? That's a great question! Didn't you know I have boys?! I wish I knew the real answer....but it was actually pretty fun. I was picking up some of the kids' toys outside, and under one of those big bouncy jumping balls I found a whole family of worms, 4 of them. So Ayden and I decided to sit there and watch them. I remember playing with worms when I was little (by the way - it was WAAAy funner back then!), and thought Ayden would like it too. First we picked them up, then we rolled them around. I got some "worm juice" on my hand, so I told Ayden we had to go wash our hands. Then he said, "No mom, I like worm juice! I'm going to drink worm juice lot of lot of times!" (Which in Ayden language means he's going to drink lots of worm juice.)
Another accomplishment this week....cinnamon raisin bagels!

Yummy yummy. They look kind of funky, but they are very good. I got the recipe from Allrecipes. It uses a bread machine, which makes the dough much easier, but I'm sure you could do it if you didn't have a bread machine.
And, my new obsession:

These things
are *HEAVENLY*. I went to this big discount store called Ollie's last week, and Ayden and I were browsing around, and we stumbled upon the treat aisle (and by stumbled I mean made a beeline for, lol) and found all these treats, repackaged by a company called "Angel Treats". These were one of them. They also had Hershey's Kisses, Skittles, and every other kind of candy you could imagine. The great thing was, the bag was probably 3 or 4 pounds, and it was only $1.99! What I'd like to know is why I have never seen these Hershey's sticks in a store, because I would have started inhaling them MUCH sooner! Oh, well.

Thoughts and Stuff.....

So I've been thinking about lots of stuff lately. I kind of have to keep it vague, because of the internet and such. But I've come to the realization that there are just some things I'm going to have to accept. Adam will forever play WOW. Anthony will probably cry every morning I bring him to school. The dog will always beg for food and run away. There are not enough hours in the day to get done what I want to. Life goes on even when I'm not there.
And I've had some important discoveries, too. Friends are really REALLY important, especially when they aren't nearby anymore :( If I don't get the house cleaned, it's not the end of the world. I need to appreciate my husband more. I need to appreciate the kids more. Our time on this earth is very limited.
I've started reading the Book of Mormon again, only this time, I'm trying to read it like a history book. I haven't decided whether or not I want to go back to the Mormon church, because I have a lot of issues with it still. But I figure if I have any interest at all, I need to start from the beginning and UNDERSTAND all the principles, even if I don't agree with some of them. It's actually been very enlightening, and sometimes I'll find a scripture that really helps me through my day. I know both my parents REALLY want me to start going back to church. And part of me wants to, also. But there are a lot of obstacles - Adam really seems to have no interest in going to church with me, and I really want to be able to go as a family, and because of the way I was SO anti - Mormon when I met Adam, I think I made him not like the church. Plus, it's hard being able to go to Relief Society by myself when I do go, because the kids don't like to be separated from me. It's really a big issue that I don't talk about a lot. But it's almost always on my mind every day. My sister has had the missionaries over to her house recently, and I wish I was that brave, but I'm not. I don't want to say or do the wrong thing and have them be like, "WELL......she's hopeless. She's going to hell, just like all the other sinners!" I mean, I doubt they would actually say that, but still.......I don't know.
