I've been tagged

Korben is home from camp. His first comment when he walked in to the house "Gosh I missed the toilet!" lol Guess their bathrooms were pretty rank. Of course he hasn't forgot how to boss Julianna around.
I gave him $10 to spend at the Trading Post while at camp. Here is what he bought:
Pack of skittles
Snickers Bar
Nerds Rope
2 packs of Gum rope
And a necklace with a wooden cross and beads on it that he said was for me but he is wearing. lol
I figured he would spend it mostly on crap. He said he bought the gum earlier during the week and spent the rest of his money this morning before they left camp. He said he won't be eating candy for the rest of the week.

My friend Angel tagged me and I figured I could do this. ;o)

Here are the rules:
a. Link to the person who tagged you.
b. Post the rules on your blog.
c. Write six random things about yourself.
d. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blog.
e. Let each person know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blog.
f. Let your tagger know when your entry is up.

1. I am OCD about where things go in the dishwasher. I have a place for everything. I don't mind when people put things in the dishwasher dirty but do not take offense if I open the washer up and rearrange everything. lol
2. I swear in my previous life I lived on the Prairie in the late 1800's, where I died in the water. Weird I know.
3. I do not consider myself a crunchy mom but I do use cloth diapers, nurse my baby and try to eat healthy. Right now I am researching some local farmers to buy beef/pork/chicken off of. Also fruits and veggies and possibly eggs. We also recycle glass, metal, paper and plastic.
4. I HATE big headed stores like Walmart, but I still shop there for convenience. I am trying to go local and shop at local stores, buy from local farmers and eat at local restaurants. I would rather have my money go back to my town than to a CEO of a major corporation who cares nothing for his workers.
5. Politically I do not know where I stand. I'm against abortion, I am for all LEGAL people to have rights, I support our troops 110% but want the war to be over now, I do not want universal health care, I do not want anymore illegals in the country. If they want to be here, come legally, learn the language and work like the rest of us. Do not come here illegally, get paid under the table and use our government money to support your butt and your families. My great grandparents came over from Europe and lived the right way. So can everyone else.
6. Once the children are old enough to be in school I want to volunteer my time to local organizations. Maybe I can use my degree in some way.

I will TAG Angie, Jen, Amber, Jill, Jessica, and Roxy.

3 is a Handful

Having 3 kiddos is definitely a handful. By the time I have some ME time its around 10pm and I am utterly exhausted and falling asleep at the computer. Right now if I shut my eyes I would be asleep on the computer. I am lucky that Trenton has decided to sleep until 5am or 6am almost every night. Some night he does wake up around 3 but goes right back to sleep after a good nursing session, which more than likely has be passed out on the couch with Trenton still attached and drooling on me an hour later.
Our vacation was nice. The pictures are uploaded on our other computer so I will have to transfer some over and post them on the kids blog at some point. Julianna is now aware of the dangers of water after being knocked down by a big wave. Trenton HATED the water and just enjoyed being held in the sling, listening to the ocean and wind while napping. Korben LOVED picking up the white baby crabs around dusk and trying to beat up the waves.
Matt still hates his job and is still in search of a new one. While on vacation he kept seeing US Coast Guard helicopter flying around. He has always wanted to do something with flying and he loves the beach. He asked me if he could get some information about the Coast Guard. I said getting info wouldn't hurt but DO NOT sign up until we have a LONG LONG talk. It would be a life changing decision for everyone. He called a recruiter this afternoon to ask about information but hasn't heard back. I think that is a sign for him not to join!? But while we were on vacation 3 different people asked him if he was in the military. I have no idea why they asked him that. He ha a short hair cut but certainly doesn't have a 'high and tight' cut. But pray for him. I would love for him to get a different job that he would LOVE but not have us further away from family. I wouldn't mind moving up North so our travels to Ohio would be less. Oh and they do have jobs in Cleveland for the Coast Guard. haha
