What time is it again??? Oh yeah it is almost 4AM.

Image can be found at
Isn't is special? It's because it is so freaking early here RIGHT now.
And I'm not even grumpy.
I know amazing huh?
I know I should be resting peacefully in my sleep right now. But I can't sleep. Today (3:43AM) is my first DAY of actual work at the care center I got hired on. I am too EXCITED. My mind is racing with excitement and ok...I won't lie a little nervousness...not because I don't know how to do my job but because that quick 5 minute tour of the, will I remember where everything is? And by the way, that last sentence was extremely interesting indeed.

  Things are looking up for us right now. The temp service called my honey last night and they have a 2, possibly 3 month job for him working EVERY day for 10 hours a is good BUT he will be working 40 minutes away from where we just moved. Ironic isn't it?

I am still laughing. BUT after 2-3 months it will end. And my job will still be there. *sigh* So everything will be okay. And thank heavens for family. The town where we live now, my husband's folks live and they are helping with the kids and everything. So my oldest two will be in school while I am at youngest (she is 3) will be at Grandma's. (And I reassured her that when I get home from work we will still snuggle. She is still my little snuggler.)

After 90 days my job will have insurance benefits. YAY!

The best part about all of this? MONEY. We will have enough to pay all our bills...and we will save. Because I totally know the value of a dollar. Maybe this summer or probably the next we will be able to go on vacation with our girls. I'm thinking Disneyland or something.  So we can celebrate each other as a family.

Looks like we made it...Look how far we've come....(I know this is suppose to be a love song..BUT it fits. We made looks like we are going actually come out on top this month....) AND we have internet so I can still blog...(It is 3:52AM right now remember....)

So IF I am rambling I'm sorry. I just have so much to say to tell you guys.
And it is morning. And I haven't had my Dr. Pepper yet. Although I slept pretty good last night. I don't need it yet. LOL.

I'll be back around 2ish or possibly 3ish to check back to see who read this.
I'm taking a pop'll pop by your blog if you leave a comment. Honest. I will.
And I'll give you a Twitter shout out too...
Because that is how I am.
Just roll with me ok?
I'm done.
You can stop reading this post now....

Until next time....

Moving bites. It is really really busy. But I will never leave you all.
My friends.
Thank you all for the birthday wishes yesterday on my FB page....I had a wonderful birthday, and my hubby is taking me out sometime this week. nomnomnom..Probably Mexican because I LOVE mexican food.

Oh ok. I'm done updating for now. I just wanted to say don't leave me yet ok?

Hey YOU! Is it Tuesday already?

I'm baaack. Well for a little while anyway, I am currently using the Internet at my mother in law's again. Thank goodness for access to the Internet still. Whew. And thank goodness for my laptop.

So uh, yesterday was Monday. And I almost always mingle on Monday right? Well I recorded a mingle for you all. (It just took FOREVER to upload to the Internet.) Even though my hair is a mess and you didn't really get to see the boxes in my living room yet...(They are gone NOW by the way...) So enjoy.

And if you are still around I'll update you on my progess/job hunt. I checked up on my application at the local care center here. It's a good thing I did, because they lost my application!! They are still looking for CNA' hopefully my CNA application will stand out since I have 4 years experience and all. And I LOVE people. And I'm super friendly and I NEVER ever get mad...No never.
(Don't you dare talk to my husband now...)

Anyhoo, we are waiting for more money in order to set up Internet permanently at our place. I really ought to put a paypal donation thingamajig on my blog...DONATE please so I can connected to online once again. ( HAHA...right? I'll be on next month probably.)

Thanks for sticking around. I will continue to update at my mother in law's and McDonald's...and anywhere that has WI-FI. I really do appreciate you all who stop by and comment. I will try and return the comments soon on your blog as well! :)

Update: If y'all are still around...

I kinda feel like Spongebob today. (Photo courtesy of Google Images.)
HEY! You! I'm still here. I just have limited access to the Internet lately. And I'm busy unpacking. And getting over the nasty cold I had right after I moved here...UGH. So since I have a spare few minutes I'll give you an update of my life, such as it exists. These are the things I am thankful for today.
  • Kids are all enrolled in school. Finally. And you know what? I think for the most part they are liking their new school.
  • My mother in law is a God-send. Man alive, if it weren't for my MIL I think I would just die. She has been letting me drive her car so I can drive my kids to school (until we get our car back...NEXT week people...I'm so EXCITED!)
  • Opportunity to blog. Yeah, yeah I know I have been sporadic in my commenting and even blogging lately and believe you me,, it's killing me. I even cried yesterday because I had a really good FB status to say...but no Internet. Ya think I can remember it now? Noooooo....*sigh*
  • My health today. Yesterday notsomuch. I could hardly speak. Throat did not hurt I just couldn't talk. Today, after a few vitamins and some cough drops and a really good night's sleep I'm ready to START the day.
  • Saint Patrick's Day is TODAY. Are you wearing your green? (Good. Cause currently I am NOT wearing green. Don't pinch me yet, I'm just in my pajamas.)
  • Access to Internet, as limited as this is. Because without you people, I'm just talking to myself. (Quick leave me a comment so I know I'm not just yakking to hear myself yak....)
  • Jobs. No, nothing permanent yet but I've been sick. I think I am going to try and follow up on my jobs I applied to and see if there is anything there for an experienced CNA....:)
  • And lastly, I'm thankful for sleep. Oh my. I have no idea what I would do if I could not sleep.
I hope you peeps have a very LUCKY day corn beef and cabbage and think of your old pal Cluttered Brain...feel free to send me some of that pot of gold you find at the end of your rainbow...share the wealth....after all I am your favorite blog author right?

Monday mingle- EXHAUSTED edition.

Since I'm not sure when I am going to get Internet I decided I would mingle on Mondays...just so my blog won't die. LOL.
But since I'm so tired and I have bags under my eyes I will mingle with the written word this week. I might be back live next week, okay? (Hopefully.)

Current questions {week of 3/14/11}:
1. Do you sew, crochet or knit?
2. Are you allergic to any foods? Bee stings?
3. Do you snore? Please describe.

1. I sew, kinda sorta. I can sew basic things like a skirt, a blouse...that sort of thing. I have also dabbled in quilting as well. I like it, it is super relaxing to me. And yes, I have even crocheted a few washcloths before too.

2. I am allergic to bees and dead end towns that don't provide work for my hubby. (LOL.) If a bee stung me, I would puff up all over and probably need to go to the doctor.

3. ME snore? HA! My husband probably will tell you I snore...but I don't. Not really. My husband breathes loudly but he is not that noisy. I can still sleep next to him. ;)

And that's my mingle for this week.
And now I must take a nap and UNpack more of my life and throw some more junk away. *sigh* Hopefully I can get back online soon at my house...
Love you my peeps! (May all of you NEVER have to move soon...UGH. It's a HUGE mess....)

Welcome back!! I think...I'm not sure.

My truck may or may not have looked like this...*sigh*
Image obtained thru Google of course.
I am just video camera happy lately...Not picture taking happy...
Well I did it. I moved from Dinkytown USA to Bigger City UT, USA...
I love it. I LOVE the opportunity we have been given to start over...possibly go back to college (for hubby) and maybe I will take some phlebotomy classes a little later. I'm just glad I don't live in Mesquite anymore. I needed this change.

I hate the UNpacking. But on the flip side I love throwing my junk away...NEVER again will I let myself accumulate such crap.

While packing I did accumulate some video footage for you. Because well..if you can't take a break every once in a while and just dance....Man life can be oh so boring.

Here's me taking a break from all the box PACKING in Mesquite.

Here's another gem of my youngest in the U-haul truck...

And here's another in the new house:(kids bedroom) (Nothing is really moved in yet at this point..we just got there.) We have lots more NOW...however.

And now we are getting settled...might try out the Internet providers in April. Waiting on some more money first. In the meanttime, I have MIL's house and anywhere that will let me sit and soak up a few minutes of Internet time...
Gotta have my fix right? (LOL.)

And never fear I WILL mingle this week. Hopefully...:)

One more day in this pesty city...

Snow Forecast delayed the moving day by one day. UGH.
Well I got a call early this morning that it was snowing a TON in the city we are going to move to...Ya, Cedar City UT. UGH. The roads were too slick to drive and the moving truck was re-reserved for tomorrow at 10. So I have ONE more night in this pesty apartment and WITH all the boxes.

And the cleaning.

And the landlord phone calls.

I swear we are all paid up except we owe some in March. You will get your money I swear. Just stop calling me. We have always given you your money before.

*double sigh*

I cannot WAIT to get OUT of this city. Seriously, I feel so STUCK here. No car, no family, HOT weather, not a TON of money, no life...(EXCEPT for my blogging life)

I just WANT to leave.
Soon I hope. Tomorrow will come soon!
My 2nd daughter M, got a hold of my Flip video camera last week. I want to share with you all her video to the world. She is 8 years old...and such a sweetie.

Don't you think?

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday.
I'll be helping to load the moving truck. AND singing my Hallelujah's because I am finally getting OUT of here.

I am so stoked.

I had to get rid of my female felines for the move. Ya, it's an extra 300 bucks deposit to have pets.
My MIL is keeping my other 2 male kitties though.
This is a picture of Whiskers and Nutmeg.
And yes I have visitation

In case you haven't heard, I'm moving. No, not moving my blog...yet anyway...I'm moving in REAL life...
To another state even. (I live on the border of like 2 states, Arizona and Utah.) I'm moving to Utah.
Hubby has WAY MORE potential for jobs there than here.
Schools are a bit better.
And we can finally get on with our lives....

So if I comment on your blog's because I really really like you.
lol. I don't have Internet hooked up at yet at the new place so my Internet presence will be dicey for sure.
Our car is getting fixed at the shop so I can't even drive to the local library for free Wi-fi, to get my "fix" for the day. lol.

Just know I love you guys.
I will try and post my monday mingle still...every Monday.
And perhaps catch up on Wednesdays...
And who knows what will happen after that.
I'm trying to find a job so my my day blogging job is gonna be a night blogging job now....rofl.
I will NOT shut down this blog.
I will still post. I will make new friends and then beg borrow and plead them to let me use their internet for an hour or so....

Because I'm AWESOME like that.

So to sum up, Moving day is MONDAY. I know, can you believe it?
I bet you are SO EXCITED for me to shut up about this moving thing...huh?
I know, I know it is just the MOST exciting thing that is happening to me right now.
Then I will get a job...and that will be EXCITING.
Then I will win a Sony bloggie camera and a million dollars...
And I will gain 1000 more followers...
and none of you will leave me during my in and out bloggy appearances..
Because you all love me.

I know it.
It is felt in the comment section below.
I might make that chocolate frosting vlog soon...(Ya know for having 400 followers.)I better get cracking because after next week who knows when I will be able to gain access to the internet again? (Probably in April. Because I don't know if my husband can last too long without internet...)

But I will try to hunt out EVERY Wi-Fi place out.
Because I'm like that.
Love you peeps.
