Spring Break is Off to a Slamming Start!

The kids are on Spring break this week. They want to spend time with their friends, I want to use the opportunity to spend time with the family. We thought we could maybe take a few days and go someplace and rent jet ski's or try zip lining or something equally fun and adventurous. You know something that would keep 3 teenagers interest. Our kids have other ideas. One would love to try zip lining, the other two are not into it. Two would love to go Jet Skiing, the other one is too scared. So in the end we decided we would stay home and do a few small things throughout the week, while allowing them time to spend with their friends. So we rented a boat for today so the kids could go tubing in the cold river water.

Well last night as I lay in bed, I just couldn't sleep. Juan was lying next to me snoring like he was getting paid for it, and I was left laying there punching him every few seconds. Dang it I had to be at the gym at 7:30 this morning and here it is midnight and I am still awake thanks to him! I was about to get up and go sleep on the couch, but I refuse to not sleep in my bed! Well finally sometime later I fell asleep, but then I heard a slamming noise. Like someone let the front door screen go. I sat upright and Juan who had been snoring soundly seconds ago was silent and he just whispered "What?" I said "Did you hear that?" Now mind you I hear weird noises all the time. I have even had whispers in my ear saying "Ma" just like my kids say it. I always think they are messing with me and I always am left with no one else in the room but me & Juan. I freak out every time. I always wake Juan up and ask if he hears the noises or whispers and his response is always no. He thinks it's me dreaming and perhaps he is right. But not last night. Last night, he said "Yup I heard that!" OK now I am REALLY freaked out! As Juan gets up looking for a weapon before heading downstairs I grab the phone in case I need to call 911. At this moment I am thinking hmm maybe we do need a gun in the house, since the only thing close enough to weapon upstairs is a pair of stilettos. With no weapon to be found, Juan just throws on the light and runs downstairs. I am upstairs, my heart beating like a bird is trying to fly out of my chest, listening for any signs of something being wrong. Juan came back upstairs probably less than a minute later, but it felt much longer than that. There was nothing, all the doors were locked, nothing outside or inside. Just a weird noise!

Now I am laying there and snuggled into Juan as close as I can get, totally freaked out and Juan is already snoring! UGH!!! At this point I knew I was not going to get any sleep and with us getting a boat for today, I needed to be with it, not tired! I looked at the clock and realized there was going to be no way I was going to the gym in 5 hours with no sleep. Now I am up and feeling guilty for not hitting the gym. I bet if I forced myself to get up, I would have been able to do it. I'll have to do some at home workout today to make up for it. But at least I get to get out there and have some fun in the sun with the family today and the noise was nothing! PHEW!

ANYWAY, what does any of that have to do with today's post? Nothing really. Just thought I would share my little crazy night last night since I can't seem to get it out of my mind still.

Anyway on Saturday night the entire family left me for their friends. I was home alone and so I took the time to relax and did my nails. I'm trying to be a bit more bold with my nails and so I put three rectangular rhinestones in varying colors down the center of my nails. I'm wearing Mind Control as the base of my nails. Check it out and let me know what you think.





I hope you all have a great week and just wanted to remind you that there are just a few days left to vote for me. :) http://brad.bookperk.com/engine/Details.aspx?p=V&c=52618&s=18069147&i=1

  2. About the whispers that sounded like your children: my mom and I had this going on all the time. Sometimes I would hear my mother calling and go downstairs to see what was going on, and she hadn't called for me at all. And it happened the other way around, too. After a while, we figured out that the 'caller' was always think about the other one when they heard the call. Freaky, but useful at times.

    1. Oh maybe my kids are dreaming about me then? LOL. I don't know if it's because I hear them call my name so much I am even hearing it in my sleep now too! LOL!

  3. Oh it's pretty, this manicure! Where do you get the rhinestones from? The ebay ones I've seen are just small rounds. Cute but not the best when it comes to variety.

    PS I just wanted to say a big big big huge thank you, my polishes came in this week and I'm going to go and wear them one at a time and appreciate their gorgeousness. I cannot wait!
