J-5 Rogers Family


Back to Work!

Today was my first day working with/for Andrea & Brian. They have their own business, (A Advanced A/C & Heating-use them the next time you have A/C or heating issues!!) and I'm going to be doing some data entry for them to get them caught up on paper work. Hopefully after that, I can continue to help them so they don't get behind again. Poor Andrea works full-time from home, is a mother of 2, and on top of all of that, helps Brian with the business. There were quite a few invoices, and I'm excited to be doing something again. (Not that mothering isn't "doing something" because mothering is a job times 10!) The only drawback is my son Jacoby Cade...dear sweet Jesus...he is SUCH a fussy baby. I feel like I didn't get nearly as much as I would like to done this morning. Andrea's newborn is the star angelic baby - kind of like Jaydon was. I swear that her daughter NEVER cries! Jacoby is just a different breed! He is fine if he is looking at me or if he is upright. He hates to be on his back, and he hates any swings or chairs. He is only happy on his back if he is flat in his crib. I guess he has gotten way too used to sleeping on his tummy. I can't complain too much because he sleeps through the night consistently, and his cry is so quiet, he sounds like a little lamb. You can't win 'em all!
Oh - and as much as I didn't want to get paid, Andrea & Brian insisted on paying me!

After that, I picked Jaydon & Gannon up from school. Nicki - Gannon's twin - is still in the hospital, so I am helping their family when I can. I took Jaydon to swim lessons, and Gannon came with us. Then we went and grabbed Wendy's to go so the boys could eat lunch. We came home, ate lunch, I fed Jacoby, made the baseball roster for the game, and off to pick Mark up. I got home again around 4:30, changed both boys into their baseball uniforms, fed them a snack, fed Jacoby, packed the game snacks, and off again...to the 6:00 baseball game. We got home again around 7:45, bathed both boys, read Jaydon bedtime stories, and he went to sleep at 9:00. Jacoby was awake from 2:00-9:45 today! Poor, poor baby - I feel SO bad for him and the fact that he can't sleep at all because of his big brother's activities!
Then at the game, poor Andrea had to watch him while he was being fussy. So not only did she have to listen to him this morning, she got to hear him whine all over again at the game. :( He was SO tired that he fell asleep before the game was over. That lasted for all of 15 minutes, and he stayed awake again until 9:45 - as I mentioned above. Little stinker!!! He SO fights his sleep!
So the game...
I was standing behind home plate helping Jaydon who played catcher the first inning tonight. Since the kids are so small, the catching equipment is a bit overwhelming, so I like to help them so they don't get tripped up. Anyway, I smelled cigarette smoke. As most of you know, I HATE cigarette smoke, and on top of that, I'm allergic to it. Take me to a bar where it's smoky, and I wake up the next morning hoarse, with major watery eyes, and I cannot breathe. So if I can smell the smoke, I know that Jacoby & Addyson, (Andrea's daughter) who are right behind me, are inhaling this. NOT cool! I exit the field and go to the stands where this person is smoking and say, "I'm so sorry to bother you, but can you move somewhere else with that? I can smell it where I'm at, and it's getting all over my babies." He turned every color under the sun and didn't know what to say. I can't remember if he apologized or not. Needless to say, he put out his cigarette, and I thanked him. Okay - so WHERE do you get off smoking at a little league game?!? Just because there aren't signs around doesn't mean you can smoke buddy! I'm all for "smoker's rights" and to each his own...but NOT at a children's event. If you go to a bar where that's at, and you don't smoke, then you are subjecting yourself to it on your own, so tough poopie! The kids at a game don't have a choice, and should not have to smell that crap! When I told Jeremy the story after the game, he was proud of me for standing up to him. Go me! :) It makes you feel good when your husband backs you up!

So here we are at 11:22 PM, and I'm about ready for my bed. I got 2 loads of laundry done - including washing the baseball uniforms which we will need again for another game on Thursday!

Look at my poll below and vote!!!

¡Hasta mañana!

I voted on your poll...and I voted "other", so I HAVE to comment. My favorite Mather's Day gifts are of the homemade variety...I love it when Ash makes me stuff, and Brian has even made me cards before. Of course, time with my family was a VERY close second!!
