Hi, my name is Kate, and I'm a foodblog addict. :
Thanks to stumbleupon and boredom I've found a ton of foodblogs out there. All with really yummy looking teasing food pictures.
That whooshing sound? My diet. Flying out the window.
The combo of this and trying to make yummy calorie filled goodies for Papa is going to kick my butt. On the plus side I only put on 5 pounds over winter/holidays, I honestly thought it was more. The temp is warming up outside so me and the kiddos can get back out and run around the yard and park.
Ryan told me the other night he wants to grow potatoes in the back yard. He seemed genuinely surprised when I told him its completely possible.
The warming of the weather is making the kiddos stir crazy and unmanageable.
Yesterday they didn't listen to ANYTHING they were told. At all. Good or bad telling. NOTHING.
Of course this was until I said from the other room under my breath that I was going to lock them in the basement. THAT they heard. *facepalm*
And little Miss Mimi (cuz she's in full on diva mode today so its Miss Mimi not Mia) earlier was complaining about being hungry. An hour after eating.
Miss Mimi: I'm hungry, I'm starving Mommy
Me: You just ate 3 eggs and a bowl of cottage cheese and had a glass of milk.
Miss Mimi: *sigh* I DON'T like that answer.
Me: *eye twitching*
Trying to track down maple flavoring and can't find it anywhere. I want to make maple carmels and marshmallow for Papa since he LOVES maple candy. Took him a bunch of plain carmels and vanilla and cherry marshmellows the other day. Also looking for a good butter pecan ice cream recipe for him. (Damn you food blogs!)
Need to get a note book or some lined paper and a binder and just start writing down all the yummy fun stuff I like to cook. And ones I want to try. I like to make notes when I've made things right in the book. My poor cook books. All written in and covered in ingredient spill overs.
I hear the ice cream maker starting to slow down, guess its time to cut up the peanut butter cups to go it in. Surprise treat for the hubby.
(side note: yes spell check I know its spelled marshmAllow, deal with the typo of mEllow. And I dont care what you say its carMEL not carAMEL)

RAGE just RAGE
This was posted on my FB by a friend and I shared it there sparking convo. :
Be aware ladies. Like we don't have enough crap to deal with after a misscarriage, this jerk is trying pass an anti-abortion law that will lump misscarriage in with it and can lead to punishment by the DEATH PENALTY.
just... I can't make... ARG... RAGE

So, kitk8, your LiveJournal reveals...
You are... 0% unique, 0% peculiar, 50% interesting, 0% normal and 50% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy talking). When it comes to friends you are normal. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is conventional.
Your overall weirdness is: 6
(The average level of weirdness is: 28.
D: I've been lied to! I am not unique! I am not a special snowflake! But I'm apparently not boring.

long night, Mia woke up about 11 as I was getting ready to head to bed. She stayed up til after 3. Thankfully herbing in WoW doesn't take much brain power. Spent the time getting mine leveled on my priest and chatting with Mark. We were both laughing so hard we were trying not to wake our households. Thank god for friends at 2 am :D :
Some time this morning both kids and their stuffed animals climbed in bed with me and Ryan. Apparently this annoyed me as I woke up later in little man's bed curled up with both cats. Took me a few minutes to realize that the kid noise wasn't coming from across the hall, but down stairs. Ryan had taken them down so I could get a little more sleep. I love that man.
Of course the first thing out of the kids mouths when I got down stairs was "We're hungry, Daddy didn't get us breakfast" *facepalm*
Tackling all the back log of laundry and dishes this weekend. The kitchen is a disaster of epic proportions since we couldn't get the recycling or garbage out for 2 weeks from all the snow. They FINALLY picked it up this week so we're clearing out the rest. Dishwasher and washing machine already going for the first loads of the day.
I keep thinking of the laundry as a raid boss. You think you get it down and will get shinies and then it spews a debuff on the kids and it heals itself. Can't wait until its warmer and I can counter act that by keeping them next to naked.

I swear the kids will be the death of me, I'll die from laughter but.... :
"mommy mia has ninja's chasing her but s'okay cuz she's a pirate"
after seeing the darthvader kid commercial from the super bowl today ryan says "bad guy!" and runs after his lightsaber
there is once again a raging fantasy battle behind me. Tinkerbelle armed with a lazer gun fighting spiderman with his lightsaber shouting "expecto patronum!"
Lil man telling daddy about his game on his leapster and Daddy responding "Isn't there ANYTHING else you want to talk about besides your game?"
bwhahaha how many times have I told the Hubby THAT? I think he's getting my pain pre-gamer days LOL

I just don't get it. Why keep up the pretense? Either I am a friend and you want to be and there should be some sign or you don't want to be or can't. Why keep me on your FB to block me? Why keep up the fucking pretense? In the last months there has been NO sign no communication on your part, nothing. But there I sit friended. There, here, other places. I miss you so bad it hurts sometimes. Never once since like.. october have you said more then ONE thing to me and when you did it was to ask me one question that you never responded back to me on. Once. I wish you'd asked ME instead of going on the word of others. I tried to ask you. Nothing. So why bother keeping me on lists of people who are 'friends' why? Don't know why I'm even bothering posting this since I don't think you even get on your LJ anymore except I have to say it somewhere to get it off my chest. Just delete me it'll be easier on me. :

yesterday was a day of giggles with the 2 year old monster. :
we were outside playing when ryan got home from work and he decided to try and teach tiny man to catch. so he squats down to be at his level and tells him to hold out his hands. the on course the cliche "keep your eyes on the ball" is uttered. Tiny man interprets this to mean squint both eyes almost closed stick one finger inhis eye and point at the ball with the other. i was laughing so hard i fell over. it was priceless. even funnier was when he made the same face and motion later when i told him to try and catch the ball.
then in the bath he's sitting and he farts. he tells me he has to go potty but won't get out of the tub. he then farts several more times. i'm trying not to laugh as i encourage him to get out and on the tiolet because we don't want him to go in the tub. he then says no potty and giggles, reaches behind his back and pulls out the rubber duck he was sitting basically on causing the noise.... then laughed and laughed and tried to put it back and "trick mommy" again.
if this is a preview of pranks i'm gonig to be getting as he gets bigger i'm in trouble.

Go to : http://www.urbandictionary.com and type in your answer to each question in the search box, then write the first definition it gives you...
1. Your name: Kate
Kate is a lion. And a vampire. And she runs like a dragon. She has more passion than you'll ever have. Next year, she hopes to live on the music interest floor. Kates are a very rare breed, but the rarest of all are the Katharine Sundays. Kate is also the subject of a phenomenal Ben Folds song.
She sure can play the violin...what a Kate!
Did you see that girl running? She resembles a dragon when she does that...must be a Kate.
2.How old are you? 27
A great age in your twenties that ends with a prime number. By this age, you're working your way out of your quarter-life crisis, and are looking forward to a developing career and to your 30's, where you'll have more money, more cars, and more women.
He's got a hot lady at his side, a two-six in his hand... that guy is livin' it up like he's 27!
3.One of your Friends. Jessi
The female version of of the name Jesse. Can also refer to someone made of awesome.
Hank: "I thought your name was spelled J-e-s-s-e."
Jessi: "Are you calling me a dude, a-hole?" -_-
4.What (who?) should be doing? Sewing
To have kinky sex, often anonymous.
Last night, I met a guy and we were sewing for hours.
Is the probe/mouse/player color, when you are playing a cat and mouse game on Starcraft that the computer keeps following only you. This joke was created after a two hour long game in witch things were assigned to each color.
“God they are all following you”
“Well he is red after all”
Hell, commonly known as the opposite of heaven. A place in which one would never want to find themselves in for long but feels as though they will never escape.
Man, I've been stuck in Urbana for so long, I hope I can escape soon.
How was your day? It was total Urbana!
7.Month of birthday. July
The month where the most amazing girls are born. These girls are hot, sexy, and incredibly irresistible. Not only do they have an appealing body but they are intelligent as well. Every girl wants to be born in July.
"Man, that girl is super sexy. Her birthday must be in July."
"My girlfriend was so irresistible yesterday. I couldn't keep my hands off her. She really is a July girl."
8.Last Person you talked to on the phone: Mom
The woman who gave birth to you. She sometimes gets in your face & business, she has mood swings & at times just loses it, but you love her no matter what & she loves you too.
All any mom really wants is to have one day a week to just relax & not have to drive their kids everywhere.
She's the woman who takes care of all the pets you promised to feed & bathe but 'forget', the one who buys you almost everything in the world, the one who hugs you when you're upset & always has a shoulder to cry on, the one who deals with anything from Tampons to heartbreaks when dads don't, the one who always searches for bargains, & one of the few females who won't start rumors about you & start drama.
In other words, the crazy lady well all love.
Me: Mom, can I have this new CD?
Mom: You just got one!
Me: But I really like this band! I found it online cheap & new.
Mom: -sighs- How much, honey?

Someone who has the funds to pay bills on time but is always late. Will avoid bill collectors at all cost. Or will lie to buy time before having to make that payment, even if he/she has to call back and make sure the lie is received by the person who was calling to collect the payment.
I just called this guy and got another schuh excuse for why he is going to be late again this month.
Yes I agree that Steve is a schuh.
That bitch Echo has turned into a real schuh over the last couple months on her payments.

its almost midnight. i have to be up in like 7 hours. mia is still awake. ryan has JUST gone to sleep after wearing off the sugar/chocolate buzz from the xmas eve dinner with one part of the family. i don't think he understands totally whats going on but he gets "presents" :
he was talking about "claus" all day.
he calls santa, claws. the day i put up the tree i talked to him about santa.
that night his daddy explained about the cats feet having claws then asked ryan about santa claus. so little man thinks claws and claus are the same and fixated on that part. there isnot santa. there is only CLAWS!
so to all you and yours:
