So, today I am getting ready for my DR. Appt. I have not been feeling well since saturday. I walk downstairs from Brennan's room and he is standing at the bottom of the stairs w/ blood everywhere. I have no idea what happened. I guess he fell and hit is nose. I never thought that much blood could come out of a little nose. his hands were covered in blood, the stairs were covered, the wall, the floor. And I was upstairs no more than 60 seconds. Long enough to get a new shirt for him to wear out.
We clean up and head to the Dr. SO this is my first time at my dr. on base. It was fairly painless but longer than you would expect. No real diagnose. Guess you have a bug or virus, but go take a urine test to make sure of pregnancy. OH BABY!
SO, lets not discuss that last part. SHHH don't tell ken.
Then we leave the Dr. office to stop and get my watch fixed that has been broken for months. Now the watch repair is in the "Guns Plus" store. Mama has never been in a gun store. I don't like guns. Yes I have two boys and a military husband, but still don't like them. So, that was just funny. I think I giggled the whole time in there. That got lots of looks. Who goes to the gun store to get your watch fixed? Is this a normal thing???? Now, the GUNS PLUS Store opens at 11 AM. What store opens at 11 AM? Only the local gun dealer in Spring Lake. And there were 6, yes 6 cars waiting for the store to open. Wow. This was a new experience for me. So brennan says, "Look mommy lots of guns" Yes, baby. Lets go home.
Then, last week I got yelled at by another MAMA! OH NO. You can't yell at a fellow MAMA. that goes against the MAMA Sisterhood! We were at the gym and the mom thought brennan was playing too rough w/ her daughter. While he was just being a boy and they were just playing, I did interfere and re-direct him. I am offended that she would yell at me to "control your son". (and many other things) So, needless to say, we have not been back to the gym since. Maybe next week we'll return.
Then I have the Floor DRAMA. I ruined my beautiful hardwood floors. SO I have been cleaning it by hand in sections to get this ugly gray film off. Oh that has been fun.
SO, what a week we have had. I am so ready for a break in my bad luck.
just wanted to give you a laugh.

Look! MAMA went Green!
I am so proud, I can't stand it. REALLY! I have wanted to buy recyclable bags forever and never did. Why don't they offer to sell these when you check out? Why don't they have them everywhere.? The Commissary could save the world! Ha, that's a joke. But they were not easy to find. I had to ask several people, the lady at the register had to ask several people before finally calling the manager. They are kept locked up in the managers office. Now, tell me why THAT makes sense? SHHH, don't tell anyone we have recyclable bags. It's a secret!
Anyway, these cute little bags hold a ton. I would say almost twice what a regular plastic bag does, plus it won't tear on you. Hate when that happens.
OK! So, here in Harnett County, NC, they don't make it easy to recycle. In FL, it was a sin not to recycle, here you have to really work to recycle. We DON'T, let me repeat, DON'T have any service that will pick up recycling. We have to haul it ourselves to certain locations. which are not convenient or close. The one around the corner is SCARY, the landfill. We do have a drop off location on base, that is great. But mind you, this is hard work. Plus I recycle it all: paper, boxes, plastic, glass, cans. It's all good. We take at least ONE BIG load to recycle each week. And that is filling the entire bed up of ken's truck. Now, tell me why Harnett county is so behind? Yes, this is the state that is a little backwards, you can still smoke in a gas station, OH MY! that is safe. You can smoke in a restaurant. I really miss FL for this. But is guess this is the home of Tobacco. So NC is not ready to go GREEN. I guess this will be my new CAUSE. This really does ruffle my panties that it is so difficult to do some good.
So, tell your friends, family, and neighbors, this is the new "IT" item at the commissary, girls! The New MUST HAVE BAG. (and they are only .70 cents each. WHAT A BARGAIN!) Join me in the Green Movement!
We'll change the world, one Green Commissary Grocery bag at a time!
GO GREEN GIRLS!

As pictured below, see the REAL Guest bedroom. Now, come one and come all to The Hodges Ranch in Spring Lake, NC. You will have your own room, walk in closet (sorry you can't walk in as it is filled w/ SLAH products. They don't come w/ the room either so hands off. ha!) and a Full bathroom. What more could you ask for? We'll leave the light on if you are ever in town!!!! Continental breakfast does not come w/ the room, either.
Also in the same weekend, we had a storm door installed. I just don't know what to think of the action pact weekend. Now, let there be light.
It really does not get much better than this.
Have a great week!
