Best Kept Secret on the East Coast

So, got married.
Yep.

Made if official.

For those of you who have read my blog a long time or have known me through different groups or whatever know that I was married before and met Bobster quickly there after our separation.

Our courtship was short and sweet and almost exactly a year to the day that we met, our son was due.  Of course, Cheeks was a rather large baby, so he was taken 10 days early.

I digress.  We knew we would always get married but it just never seemed to happen.

So a few weeks ago we just decided it's high time to do it.
We told no one.

We picked a date.  Showed up. Got married.
It was over in about 5 mins.

I couldn't stop smiling though.
I was a very happy woman.
Cheeks told me we had to get married in a different room because the one we were in wasn't big enough.  Then he wanted cake.
He told me there is always cake at weddings.
True but not ours.

We ended up going to a quiet dinner with just Cheeks.
Tim is in Florida now & has been for quite some time.
Chris was with his mother for the weekend.

So no one knew. Our announcement was done on good ole Facebook.
A sign of modern times.

Tell me, have you ever kept a really good secret?

Merry Christmas 2013 from Us to You

Merry Christmas!!!

Our morning started off with the biggest kid of them all waking us all up at 6:45am.
That's right they big ole 42 yo couldn't take it and started telling us "Santa was here!"

The 7yo bounded down the steps so quickly I don't think he actually touched any of the steps.

Pretty typical morning.

Kids opened their gifts.

 
They loved everything.
Cheeks even exclaimed "That's a lot of stuff"

My mom, her husband, PopPop, & my dad came over to do gift exchange & hang out.
Christmas exploded again.

My sister came as well & bought Cheeks a "fart gun".  Funny at first, now I am plotting my revenge.

Look what she bought the Bobster:

Not the best pic but hey, I was going for the shirt.

Now we are either blogging, taking a long winters nap (ahem, Bobster), or playing with our toys.

Still need to celebrate with Bob's side of the family.  Prime rib dinner in just a few hours.

How was your Christmas?
Was it wonderful? Magical?
Just right?

Ours was.

Merry Christmas and to all a goodnight.

What's Your Superpower?

Forgetfulness.
Yes.
Tis true.
That, my friends, is my superpower.

Perhaps it comes with age.
I did turn 43 this past summer.
Now longer early 40's...mid 40's.

I take meds.
None have a side effect of being forgetful though.

Take today for instance.
I was running to Michaels to get a new rainbow loom for Cheeks.
I purposely took out this little book that I have with coupons on it & laid it next to my purse.

I put my coat on, got Cheeks to get his coat on, grabbed my purse & left.

I imagine the little coupon book waving at my back as I walked out the door.
Didn't realize I left it on the table til I was looking for it when in Michaels.

He still got the loom but I didn't save 40%.
Hmph.

Take this blog.
It's been since mid November since I visited.

That may not be forgetfulness as much as lack of excitement to write about.
Who wants to hear how I am bribing the 15 yo to do his parents laundry with money?
I admit it.
I pay him.
I hate laundry.

So anywho...tell me what is your superpower?

Heartbreaker or Harlot: You Decide

WoW! I haven't written on here in awhile.
Nothing that exciting happening I suppose or blog worthy.
I lead a dull life unlike the 7yo.

 
 
He might look all innocent & green (He was the Hulk...as if he would be anything else) but he is heartbreaker.

Well really I will lead you to decide whether it's him or
Dun
Dun
Dun
A harlot.

Apparently, liking boys starts a lot earlier than I thought.

Harlot, or for the sake of the post, we will call her Sally, Sally has been stealing kisses from Cheeks for about a month now.

It all started innocent enough with her running up to him, kissing him & telling him "I love you"

Upon questioning Cheeks, he apparently tells her that he loves her back.

I ask if he likes her kisses & he told me "Yes, they feel nice".

Well a new development has happened.
Sally told Cheeks that "I only like you & no one else".

When I asked if he liked her he told me "Meh, she's alright".
Then I asked if was planning on marrying her?

His reply "NO, not yet! I have lots of girls to get through.  They all like me mom, all of them!"

So you tell me, am I raising a heartbreaker or is the other mom raising a harlot?
Perhaps a bit of both?

Sigh.
I thought boys would be easier!

You Make Me Proud New Jersey

I am proud today I am a true Jersey girl.
Born & bred.

Nothing has made me more proud, today, then knowing New Jersey has become yet another state that has legalized gay marriage.



You go NJ! You go!

I am sure I will lose some readers because of this post.
You know what? Buh-bye!

Here's the thing...everyone deserves to be happy.

It is not for us to judge what is right or wrong.  That is for Heavenly Father and Jesus. 

The only difference is between a straight person and a gay person is what goes on behind closed doors & honestly, that's none of my business.  Everything else is the same.  We all put our pants on one leg at a time, we all wear coats if it's cold, we all have to eat/drink to survive and most of all, we all want to be happy & loved.

So now, thanks to the new legalization, everyone in the state of NJ can be fully happy.

For those that are more religiously zealous than others, see the comment above about not judging.  Tsk. Tsk.

So this LDS girl, whose straight, in a loving relationship and a mom to three is thrilled that her friends can get married and be happy.

Mazel Tov!

I highly recommend...

For those of you who have been reading the ole bloggeroo for awhile (like my mom...HI NANA!) you know I love to read.

We have a little library in our dept. at work.

I found this little gem in the box:

This is a page turner
BUT
No for reasons you would think.

It's not suspenseful, it's not romantic...it just is.

It just is an extremely wonderful emotional rollercoster ride.

The story of a man, who lives alone, runs an orchard and is getting along ok. 
Two young girl wonder into his orchard and life is never the same for him.

I didn't want this story to end.
That's when you know it's a good book...you are so involved in the characters lives that you want to k now what goes on after the book ends.

If I were you I'd check this one out.  I almost cried (but I was reading at work..shhh! don't tell).

What have you been reading lately?

The Little Bird Flew The Nest

It's official.
The first bird has left the nest.

I am not overly happy about it.
Don't get me wrong, I'm proud of him for doing it on his own, being such a hard worker, great saver and very headstrong.

He's only 19.
20 next month.
Still a baby really.
Yes I know you can serve your country at 18, vote, etc.

That's his apartment...in Florida.
Were you expecting me to say he moved like 20 minutes away?

Nope, when he decided to move he chose 1000 miles away.

He transferred within the company he works for.
His dad and brother went down with him...drove down.

His girlfriend and her family are already there.
Ah, didn't know he had a little honey in the Florida area, did ya?

That was a big part of the move BUT he wanted to see if he could do it.
He's doing it.

It's been over a week.
I talked to him briefly the other day...well texted, God forbid he pick up the phone.
Wait...I texted him first.
I must practice my Jewish guilt on him..."You can't call your stepmom every now & then?"
I guess it would be more LDS guilt.

I've drifted off topic.
The point is he's gone.
On his own.

Don't tell anyone...I miss the little bugger.

Late for the party

I love to read.
Super love it.
I can read pretty quickly too.

I have read some pretty good books in my day.

So after seeing a certain movie, that I found on the floor of my 19yo's room, I decided to read:

That's right.
I finally read "The Hunger Games" trilogy.

Darn skippy happy that I read it too.

What awesome books.

I was so surprised these are marketed as teen lit.

This time around I think seeing the movie first made me want to read the books.
Of course, I usually read the book then see the movie.

Now I am bookless.
Nothing to read.

Do you have any suggestions?
Does anyone even read this blog besides the Nana?
Hello Nana.

If you do, please leave me a book selection you think I might like!

20 Things You Didn't Know About Me!

I was perusing blogs today (because I am addicted to them) and I saw this post from About Mom who got her inspiration from Fabulous Mom who got her inspiration from Dear Chrissy.

It's like that old commercial from the 70's "And they told two people! And they told two people!"

So I figured what the hey, let's get on that train & follow the lead.

Here ya go.

1.  I love changing the calendar to a new month & looking at blank sheets.  It's like a renewal of sorts.

2.  I was 36 years old and 1 month exactly when I had my Cheekers.  He was 10 days early and is born on one of my best friends birthday.

3.  Not a fan of change.  I like routine.  I thrive on it really.  Bobster doesn't, so we often have a tendency to spat a bit when he wants to change something.  I've gotten a bit better but something that monkey wrench in my routine can not be un-wrenched!

4.  My fav song ever is "Rock the Boat".


It's a toe tapper, no?
Love it.

5.  I absolutely adore the finale scene in White Christmas when the sisters come out in the red gowns.  They are, to this day, the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen.  I even had a doll when I was little that had almost the exact same dress.

6.  My first car was a '79 Chrysler Cordoba.  Oh yea, I was styling.  It didn't even have heat.  A/C yes, heat, not so much.

7.  I didn't get my license until I was 21.  Don't ask.

8.  I am licensed in the state of NJ to do nails.  I went to school for 300 hrs to learn how to do manicures, Pedi's, fake nails, etc.  I worked at it for one summer & threw in the towel.  Not me at all.

9.  I graduated Rutgers University in May 2005 with a degree in English & Elementary Education.  I work in customer service and I love it. 

10.  This is my second tour of duty at the company I work for.  I left in 2003 to go back to school. 

11.  I have been fired twice in my life. 

12.  I was asked to sign a waiver when a company I worked for closed my branch.  Their reason? I was considered a minority...I was over 35 and a woman.  If I signed I got 2 additional weeks of severance.  Worked in my favor because I had already gotten my old job back.

13.  I use exclamation points like no tomorrow!!!  Seriously, it's an addiction.

14.  I've eaten goat and ostrich.  Interesting.  Not bad although the goat did give me a little intestinal issues.  Of course it was curried goat so I guess that's what I get.

15.  I pretended to be a lesbian once to get a guy to leave my best friend alone.  It worked!

16.  I have a really good memory for names. 

17.  My birth mark is on my pinky toe.  My mom thought I stepped in poop when I was a baby.

18.  I appeared on a show called Dancin On Air a few times & one of the premiere episodes of Dance Party USA.  Yep.  That's right.  I shook my money maker at 16 on tv. 

19.  I flew to Florida to meet a guy I met on the internet.

20.  I had trouble coming up with 20 things because I think I am pretty open on my blog and facebook.

That's it.

So now tell me something I don't know about you.

The Phrase That Pays...

Phrases.
They are around us all the time.
TV.
Radio.
Internet.

We all have key phrases that we say all the time.
We might not even realize.

I know my phrase.
In case anyone in my family is reading this, it will be my favorite CLEAN phrase.

I say it & my sister cringes.
She has actually said to me "Never say that again"

Muhahahaha...I have put it in writing now.

I will shout from the roof tops.
My favorite phrase is:


Okie Dokie Artichokie

Oh, that's right.
You can get it printed on a t-shirt.  A cap.  A sweatshirt.

The possibilities are endless really.

Now I want to know what's your fav phrase.
The phrase that pays for you.

Leave me a comment.
Okie dokie artichokies?

Time Goes By

Geesh, the summer is almost over & nary a post to be found on ye olde blog really.

I'm not sure why.
I just think I didn't have anything spectacular to write about it.
Dull life.

Lots of pool time, lots of running around, lots of driving the Neon because my Kia minivan was broken down.
Not anymore though.
My father in law surprised me by coming to fix it on Friday while I was down the shore with the birthday boy!

Birthday boy you say?
Yes, we had a birthday.

This baby here:

Went ahead & turned 7 years old!

Where did my chubby baby go?
This lanky, lean, front two teething missing, wise mouth child has replaced that chubby baby!!!

He is on the go.
24/7.

He emulates his older brothers.
He loves The Hulk and IronMan.
Loves the Wii.
Pretty much lives on spaghetti and chicken mcnuggets.

It is what it is.

I love this kid so much.

There will be no turning 8 though.
I forbid it!

The tail end of the summer is going to be endless trips to the pool and back to school shopping.

How about you?
How are you handling the end of the summer?

Better Late than....

Pregnant.

I know what you were all thinking.

Hmm, Meghan hasn't really been blogging.
She hasn't been feeling well.
Oh a post from Meghan beginning with Better Late than...

Get it far from your minds people.

There is no womb in the inn.
Know what I mean.

I mean it's nothing like this post being late.
Most schools are starting in the next week or so.
We start two days after Labor Day.  So I have time.

I never ever showed you what I made Cheeks' first grade teacher & his guidance counselor as an end of the year gift.

I got the idea from Lil Luna 
She's LDS & you know those LDS girls are some crafty biatches.
Altho, I think I was passed over for the creative gene although I am LDS.

Anyway I wanted to do something fun that didn't cost much but got the point of thank you across.

So I made the "Now that the strain of school is over gift"

I bought two strainers at the Dollar Spot at Target.
Bought a big ole honkin bag of Mars candy.
Then I bought two $10 gift cards to Target (because who doesn't love Target).
I found tissue paper & name tags on clearance.
Holla!

First I filled the strainer:


I wrote on the outside of the gift card "Now that the strain of the school year is over, relax & enjoy your summer".

I then wrapped it:

I had Cheeks take them to school & give them out.

His teacher loved hers.
I haven't heard from the counselor but she may have been on maternity leave at that point.

Anyway, I think it turned out super cute and I have Lil Luna to thank for you.

Do you do anything special for the teachers, etc at the end of school year? Or even at the beginning?

Am I Parenting Right or Wrong? You be the Judge!

My son Cheeks is a skinny mini.
He's tall but thin.  So thin that when he sucks in his stomach to show us his ribs, Bobster tells me "Those aren't your ribs, those are your organs".

Well he also has the trait of being a picky eater.
Super picky.

Last night I made chicken with pasta.
In the crockpot...the temp in Jersey is in the high Hell zone.

Anyway he decided he wouldn't eat it after a nibble (and that is being generous).

He was told he would get nothing else.

 He came to me a few hours later.

"Mom, can I have a banana?"
"I suppose"

"Well I was thinking of something smaller, like a yodel."
"No, banana or chicken"

This went on for some time.
About 90 mins truthfully.

I finally had enough and told him.

"Tell your troubles to someone else"

His response:

"Yea, I'm gonna tell it to the judge!"


He then went on to tell me that I treat him like dirt (after spending 3 hours in Chuck E. Cheese yesterday) and I talk to him nasty.  He also is telling anyone that listens that we don't feed him.

So look for me & Cheeks on the next Judge Judy.

I wonder how she will rule.

How I know I am getting older...

July is my birthday month.
The big 43 is coming in just a few days.

I've noticed lately that I must be approaching middle age.

Here's a few reasons.

Yes, this just a gratuitous shot of Luke Bryan but he represents County Music that I have taken a huge liking to.

Why?
1.  It's catchy.
2.  I can understand the lyrics.

Sad, right?

Another reason is NJ is going through a God awful heat wave right now.
Both of our vehicles are lacking a/c because it broke.
I will run only necessary errands, bitch the entire time that's its ungodly hot, come home and not leave again unless it's absolutely necessary.

I've noticed the veins.
The varicose veins are appearing on my legs.
Like left & right.

I figured I'd get Secretary Spread before I got those since I sit on my tushie all day
BUT
I guess working on my feet all those years didn't help.

Finally, I am going to bed at like 10pm exhausted but the six year old is just getting started.
He is out lasting me at the end of the day.

I'm sure there are many more reasons but my middle aged brain isn't working properly.

Tell me, how do you know you are getting older?

Monday, July 01, 2013

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

I realize this morning, July 1st, 2013 that I have a few days left.
In just a little over two weeks, mere days, I will be leaving something behind and entering into something new.
Something unknown.
Something I am not looking forward to.

It only happens once in life.
It took me awhile to get to this stage in my life.

I've been through ups and downs.
Life hasn't been easy but it hasn't been horribly hard.

Others will celebrate and want me to partake.
I'm not sure I will.
While it's new, do I really want to celebrate?
Do I want to put it out there?
Really?

Hmph.

I guess I will.

In just 15 days from today I will be


43!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you freakin stand it?

How did I get to this age?
Seems like yesterday I was still in high school...wait, wait, nope I just act like I am sometimes.
You know, try to get my parents to pay my bills & give me money.
It doesn't work like it used to.

That's the new stage in my life.

Am I mid 40's or still early 40's?

I'm confused.

Help!

Obsessed Much

Hold onto your hat, Dorothy, you're going for a ride.

This post really isn't about the Wizard of Oz
BUT
About my 6yo's obsession with the Weather Channel.

He will watch this channel morning, noon and night.

Today, as a matter of fact, he went into my room to watch "Up" on family.  When I walked by my room I asked what he was watching.

His reply "Hurricane Hunters"

He always talks weather and is obsessed with tornados.  Friday when I picked him up from camp I told him the Delaware Valley was under a tornado watch.  He kept looking in the sky going "It's going to start any minute.  I can see it.  Look mom, the tornado is coming"

I'm glad his interest is in weather vs. power rangers but does anyone else have a kid who is obsessed with the weather like mine.

Whole Lot of Pomp & Circumstance

 



I'm not sure how we got to 8th grade graduation.

When I met Bobster,  the 14yo was only in first grade.  The same grade Cheeks is just finishing.

I can't stand it.

He will be a freshman next year.
A freshman.

Am I allowed to cry?

He graduated from Rohrer Middle School which is the "new" middle school attached to my old high school. 

I am pretty proud of him.
He is growing into a nice young man...who does well with the ladies.  Tee hee.

Congratulations Christopher!!!!

We love you!

That's My Kid!

 
I got a note from the teacher yesterday.
The first grade teacher.
 
 
Apparently Cheeks likes to be the kid to take charge of the events of the day.
I assume they were getting ready to go out to play.
 
So my little cherubic angel proudly shouted to the class:
 
"If you have balls you can play, if you don't have balls you can't play"
 
I think the teacher recovered in the nurses office.

Circus Freak

I had root canal done.
It was like my 7th or maybe 8th. 
I've lost count.

I've only had 10 more teeth than you are supposed to.
I had 8 pulled, not including the wisdom teeth.
Oh, I had those pulled...one at a time.
Good times right there.

Did I mention braces?
Had them.
Not once.
Not twice.
Three times.
Yep.
Three times a charm is what they say.

I'd believe it had my teeth not slightly shifted and are a bit crooked.
Gives me character.

So imagine my surprise when the dentist says to me today...(while my rubber dental dam is in my mouth rendering it almost impossible to speak or swallow)

"That tooth there normally has three canals in it, occasionally four.  You, my young lady, are one of the lucky ones.  You have four canals"

Oh, yea me!

I'm thinking of joining Denny's Demented Dental Dames Circus.

Whaddya think?

OOH! Lookie What I Got


Look at all that sunblock.

Just what this pasty Irish girl & her pasty Irish family need.

Thanks to Coppertone I am all set.

They know I tend to spontaneously combust when I spend long hours in the sun but with their sunblock, I am good to go.

Seriously though, I am Coppertone Water Mom.

It totally rocks.

If you have any questions let me know!  I'll see what I can answer for you.

Are you an ambassador for anything?
Leave me a comment.

Why?
'Cause I'm nosey like that.

Wann Know What I Did Saturday Night?

I got wild.
I got crazy.

I got rid of the mom jeans


That's right.
I broke out the capris & went out.

Wait!  That's not the best news...I was sans kids and husband.

I know, you are thinking "Say it isn't so Meghan?"
It is.

I went out.
ALONE.
It was glorious.

Wondering how I partied?  I know you are so I won't keep you in suspense.

See, after spending the entire day by myself...I know, now you know why NJ is getting slammed with storms this week, my sister asked me to go to dinner and a movie.

Dinner!
Where I didn't order for anyone but me.
Where I didn't have to refer between kids or listen to my husband ref.
Where I almost ordered alcohol...almost...I didn't.

Then we hit up the movies.

Saw...

Very, very funny!
Then again I love me some Vince Vaughn.

Know what else?
I didn't have leave the theater once to take someone to pee.

Honestly I didn't know myself.
It was fantabulous.

Most of all, while I appreciated the time to myself, I realized that I miss my family when they aren't around.

There wasn't any chaos, no one asking me as soon as I sit to get them a drink, tie a shoe, look at this.  No one randomly giving me hugs and kisses.

I almost didn't know what to do with myself.

Almost.

It Hurts




I'm Meghan.
I take prescriptions.
Two.
One for the tummy.
One for the mental health...Celexa if you will.

I am not ashamed to take the latter.
I need a little mood boost.

Last Tuesday I called my dr's office to get a refill on both meds.
Without going into a long drawn out post, it only took them until Friday to call it in.
I was out of both Tuesday morning.

It's Sunday.
I only have my tummy med.
My dr's office never called the Celexa in.

I am not happy.
Either is my family.

I woke up this morning.
Came downstairs and my stomach immediately was in knots.
I am having a hard time dealing with the mess...which I did manage to clean but it's a wreck again.

Bobster is putting up with me BUT I get extremely sensitive and it causes me to get nasty.
Yes.
I can be a b*tch.
Tis true.

I am trying not to take it out on the kids.  I am succeeding so far.
Bobster, not so much.
I snapped at him...a few times.

I feel like my stomach has a knot big enough in it to pull the remains of the Titanic up from the bellows of the deep.
I want to cry if you look at me wrong or say something I deem the wrong thing.

I'm smart enough to know it's the lack of medicine BUT I can't help it.

First thing in the am, I will call my doctor's office & after my appointment at the end of the month, I will look for a new doctor.  This isn't the first time something a long these lines have happened.
It is the first time I've been without my meds for an extended period of time.

Tell me, do you take anything?
Just to help.

Is it in their genes?

I am a mom to 3 boys.

 
Handsome devils, no?
 
I also wife to one Bobster:
 
 
Lucky woman, no?
 
I know, I know, what more could I ask for.
 
Here's the thing.
 
I have never heard or seen a group of people talk to the television like they do.
 
From the oldest to the youngest.
 
Especially the youngest.  He talks to the Wii Mario Video Game like a boss.
 
The older ones will do it too but mostly with sports.
 
Then there's Bobster.  He pretty much talks to the wall.  Nah, he will talk to the tv as well.
 
To be honest it annoys the heck out of me.
I can't take it.
I feel like I live in an insane asylum when they do it.
 
Wait, wait,...maybe I do live in an asylum.
That's not the point.
 
Am I the only female subjected to this?
Do others do this?
Do females do this?
 
Tell me I am not alone!!!!!
