My Whirlwind Day At The Computer!


WOW, It’s been a whirlwind day at this computer and at 11:40 p.m., I am still on it! Why, you ask, am I still on this puter (as my 2 year old calls it) at this late night time? Easy, my husband is on his way home from a business trip and I am trying to stay awake so I can call him every so often to make sure HE”S awake!

But back to my whirlwind computer day! Well that’s easy, it’s the end of the month! UGH! I love, but hate the end of the month because I publish a really nice eZine (electronic magazine or newsletter) every month and I like it to go out to my customers on the last day of the month so it is fresh in their in-box on that following day, which is the first of the month.

I like my customers to have the eZine by the first because I have an Event Calendar for local events and my Mojo’s Kids Birthday Club Kids for that month. As a mom, I would like seeing my kids name and birthday first thing. Anyway, this can all be a bit of work (not that I am complaining. I really love publishing the eZine. It fulfills the need to return to my roots as a graphic artist a bit) and of course, like I said earlier, my darling hubby was gone today on travel, so no having him watch the kids while I worked. But I got it done and in a whole new format too!

What’s even more crazy is I am also a bookkeeper for a small non-profit organization and as most people know, the end of the month / beginning of the month can get busy. Oh well, that’s on tomorrow’s To Do List……LOL

Ok, so it’s time to get off here. My fingers are still not recovered from a few days ago when I, for the first time ever, did my online party! It was a blast but man that, along with typing all day today, my little fingers are exercised OUT!

The Terrible Twos....Will I Survive!!!!!!!

Well our youngest, beautiful daughter has hit the gosh awful Terrible Twos! The biggest problem is even though we are second time parents with her.........IT DOESN'T GET ANY EASIER!!!! I keep telling myself it's just a phase and this too shall pass - but man oh man......I just don't think I am going to survive her phase!

Guess what? For all you first time parents thinking the terrible two's is awful with the first and it might be easier to take when you have more children.......WRONG! Why? Because NOW you have another whole aspect to throw into the wonderful mix! How? Well now you have the sibling fighting, which you either didn't have before or it was not as bad. This comes in to play because EVERYTHING the older sibling has (whether it is theirs or not....doesn't matter to the 2 year old) now belongs to the beautiful 2 year old!

Next comes the "Till Death Tug-O-War" that you as a parent are not use to because the 2 children who you are watching do this LOOK like your kids but could NOT possibly be your children so a Pod Person from the planet Mars MUST have came and made a switch! OH What Do You Do!!!!!!!!!???????

You swallow you fear and bravely, yet calmly enter into the loud and frightening war that is happening and you try to reach a rational agreement that makes both alien children happy so they don't use their laser guns on you and zap you into oblivion!

As you leave un-scathed and relatively stressed out, you hope that the kind people of Mars will return your lovely little angles and take back their not so friendly Mars Children and all peace will be restored to your precious home............UNTIL NEXT TIME!

Welcome To My World!

Hello, my name is Rebecca (or Becky) and I am a 43 year young mom of two small children. Katelynn is 6 1/2 and Sarah is 2 1/2. My husband is the best and I can't believe he still puts up with me after all this time.

I have been wanting to start a personal blog but just didn't know what to start with. I have taken advantage of evening time when I am holding our youngest and always have a paper and pen handy to write all my ideas down. Seems like a have a lot of ideas. The hard part is getting the words from paper to computer, for various reasons. Mostly it's because if I am on this computer, I am working to promote my home based business. If I am not on this computer, I am usually fighting one of my girls for the desired computer chair!

If you stick with me long enough and continue to read this blog, you will find I have quite an onery streak and a good sense of humor. That is why my friends love they say. (hmmmm?) I do enjoy making light of a bad situation, usually with crazy jokes. Unfortunately, people can get to me more often then I would like and humor is my whay of dealing with it, I suppose.

Well that's enough about me, for now. Let's start with one of my favorite posts I put on one of my many mom sites. If you have children, especially toddlers or above, you will truly appreciate my first post!

By for now,
Rebecca in Becky's World!
