Soapy slide

5/26/2015 05:30:00 PM

Yeah, it's redneck but that just means we were having fun! 

The normal slip and slides just don't cut it, they are too narrow and now long enough so we fixed that problem right on up! We went to Lowes and bought a 12' x 50' plastic drop clothe, unfolded it and doubled it then taped and staked it down and went to town! 

At first we had it in the front yard which has no incline and was just not a whole lot of fun! But then, then we moved it to the back yard


As you can see the kids loved it, so much so they cried, begged and screamed to go back and play on it after we ate even though it was thundering and lightning... They just want to have fun. 

This is one of the many things I plan on doing with the kids this summer! I can't wait!

Haircut

It's all gone now

5/23/2015 08:42:00 AM

 Yesterday I took the plunge and I chopped my hair off! At first I was skeptical I had gotten too much cut off but everyone loves it so I guess I do too! 



And there you have it, it will be good for summer and I will probably maintain it until I get bored with it! 

-------------

So here is a day later update to my haircut. I wasn't totally happy with it so had had it fixed... I lost some length on the front but the back is not as choppy!

House

House Tour?

5/22/2015 02:42:00 AM


No really, I'm legit NOT going to walk around my house cleaning it up for pics for my blog to show people I don't know what my house looks like! But, I will totally share my already taken photos from my Facebook and Instagram! 
People have been asking me to share photos of my new home, some people I am my Facebook friends with but they read my blogs so this is just an easy way to show everyone! Whatever. 
Anyways, we moved from a stupid cramped house to this home that sits on 80+acres, we love it! 

(I don't have an outside pic, sorry).

Anyways, here goes! 

Ok, I just lied... This is my front (side) yard. 


This is my home made fire pit (and back side of my house). This irks me a bit that it sits at a slant but it's the only safe place we could put it! 

This is my living room, the top is the day after we moved in and how I had it set up but it just didn't "flow" so I changed it to what you see on the bottom! Sure I lost my cutesy fireplace decorating but now the tv is more viewable by all, it flows better and that door is more accessible! 

That shelf you see as the TV stand and then over there in that corner is probably one of my favorite prices of furniture I've gotten in a while! It's been many things but started as a replacement entertainment center... 

And now when all is said and done it's a shelf

Which might I add if you look closely at the left pic you will see some
Damage that I fixed right up with a CRAYOLA CRAYON in the right photo! 
You do what you gotta do when your kids mess your stuff up! 

Moving onward. Some of you may notice the god awful slip cover on my couch and there is a simple explanation for thy... I have kids, and I can't live with this fugliness! 

That's a photo from our previous home but yeah, that couch. Eewwww. We keep it because it's comfy and again, I have kids. I'll get new stuff when they are grown!

Now really moving on... My kitchen, I love it! 

Don't judge my shit on the counters, after all we DO LIVE in our home! My kitchen is a pretty basic country kitchen but I really do love it! I got those rugs dirt ass cheap at Walmart and they are shaping up to be what I'm building my entire kitchen around, I love the print. Through that blue door is a utility room and laundry room, I don't have pics of that so oh well. Maybe one day I'll share! That cabinet you see back there belongs to my beloved mother in law, it's been a part of our family for over 100 years and one day I really do intend to refinish it but not until I know I can do it right. I'm not painting it some weird chalk paint color but instead going to restore it to its true beauty. 
Speaking of restoring and painting shit weird colors, I will in fact be doing that to these two pieces of furniture

My husband got those from his job, people actually gave them away and he scooped them up quick like. I can't wait to refinish them! And speaking of things my husband gets, he got this too


That's just part of a set of furniture that matches that now sits in our daughters room! One day I will refinish it but for now we just use it. Also, you love my shower curtain curtains? I know I do! 

That's it for now, that's all the pics I can find in my albums so that's all you get. Maybe I'll update this more tomorrow after I clean, maybe not!




Blog

So in case you can't read

5/21/2015 03:25:00 AM

I have an "About Me" section over there 👉🏻👉🏻👉🏻👉🏻


But, I'll go ahead and cut and paste it here too! 

Hi. I'm Jama but some of you may call me Holly, whatever floats your boat really! Anyways, yes, I am THAT mom... The one all the other moms tend to point at and chatter about, the one they call rude and brash and the one they secretly wish they were. I love Jesus but I curse like a sailor, have more tattoos than I do fingers and toes, have more than one baby daddy and I'm not ashamed of any of it. If you can't handle me at my worst then go away because I don't have a best! I'm no different than you, just more colorful! Enjoy my blog, rantings, raves or whatever you want to call it! I'm a beautiful chaotic mess and I'm not ashamed to show it!

Health

My kidneys

5/20/2015 09:22:00 AM

Pretty much freaking hate me! 

I was born with kidney reflux and if any of you have followed me or know me then you know here lately (since my 30th birthday) I have had some pretty serious kidneys issues. 
In fact in October of 2013 I had a stroke and even though they were treating me for that they were more concerned with my kidney functions and the fact my "numbers" we're way lower than they should have been. Currently I'm taking Cipro to try and curb a NASTY infection that came out of nowhere... Like I honestly had serious pain and went to the ER thinking it was something else only to find out my kidneys were seriously not ok! I've been on Cipro for almost a week now and guess what? I fee no better! Not only that but I'm having some type of flare up so not only does my kidney feel like it's trying to crawl out of me I can barely walk, sit or stand. Yeah, not fun. 
I see a trip to the ER of my doctor can't squeeze me in soon. I'm supposed to have some type of IVP test done but who knows when they will actually get around to that!! 
Anyways, that's my goings on as of late. 




Blogging

Hey, look up there.

5/20/2015 09:14:00 AM

Notice the name change? 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻


 Yep, I bought the domain "OhShesTHATMom.com" and I intend to keep this one. For whatever reason I didn't keep any of my other blogs, I don't know why... I just didn't. But this one, I hope to chronicle things I should have been doing all along so that maybe one day my kids will have this to look back on, or whatever. Lol 

Life

Memories

5/16/2015 11:21:00 PM


When I first met my husband things were A LOT different. 
I have a lot of crazy memories from that time with some being bad and some being great so it always warms my heart to find little pieces of good things from back then! 
Anyways, today my mother in law was going through some things that have literally sat in storage for the better half of about 10 years and she came across this...


This thing has got a unique story behind it really and is one of the first memories I have of my mother in law! You see, this is her paddle and she would write the names of the "frequent flyers" at her house and if they were "bad" they got popped with the paddle. So more or less my teeny tiny mother in law was smacking grown children with a little wooden paddle! Lmao
Anyhow, my first memory of her was her telling me "if you hurt my son I'll write your name on this and shove it up yo..." yeah, you get the point! 
The paddle never did go up my rear but I'm sure I deserved it a few times (no, I know I did). It was neat to finally find this and have a piece of so long ago that everyone can laugh about! 
That's all. 
Life sucks for me, yard is half cut and kidneys are raging but that's an entirely different blog. 

Farm Living

Well

5/16/2015 05:21:00 AM

Ok so, since I decided I'd try to blog more here goes...

Today was somewhat eventful, first I woke up in screaming pain again only to find out my oldest kid missed the bus (yay right, no). I got a new lawnmower and weed whacker thingy... I'm seriously surprised it fit in the back of our dodge.


But it did so it made its way home! Tall, I love on 80 acres with two being fenced in... I can't wait to see the men cut the grass with a push mower, it will do them some good though. 
And yeah, living in the country on a farm isn't all it's cracked up to be... This is not ok and I'm sure in some states it's legal to burn your house down if you find one of these lurking. 


My son found that in the yard, he was so proud while I on the other hand wanted to puke. 

Speaking of things being good for people the medicine the doctors have put me on for this round of whatever is wrong with me have really thrown me for a loop. My main issue is something is breaking out my face, bad... And that generally doesn't happen to me so I'm not very happy. 


Just look at all those bottles just for lil ole me! 

If you're still reading my blog I'm sorry it's boring, I'm sorry there is no juicy drama or things to make your panties wet... I'm just me, laying in my bed at 5:26am bored as shit. 

Until next time... Peace 






Food

So ready for Summer

5/14/2015 07:08:00 PM

So yeah, here goes... I know I kind of just started talking about random shit in my blog before I really even talked about myself and the honest truth is that I think intro post are stupid. You're a bunch of people online that are only here to be nosy, no one cares what my hobbies are and all that other crap! 
So enjoy my life as I write it, which probably won't be often because I seriously suck at keeping up with things. 

I'm so ready for summer to be here. I'm so ready to take my kids on some mini vacations! I'm so ready to stop waking up at 5 am. I'm so ready to stop risking tickets to get home before 3 pm to make sure I catch the kids bus. I'm just so ready for summer. 
I know I'll be screaming that I'm ready for them to go back here Ina. Few months but right now I'm just over this school year. Don't get my wrong because it's been a good one, I'm just done with this year and ready to move on. 

One of the main things I will be doing this summer is trying to figure out how to decorate my living room... I'm so hung up on curtains it isn't even funny. 

I think I have set my mind on the middle ones though? Maybe! And yes, before anyone ask they are in fact shower curtains. Hey! they are cheaper and what I actually want!
I also really need to paint a few things and fix a few things... Which will probably never happen! 

I've been extremely sick lately too, the most cooking I have done has been in the microwave but last night I did manage to pump out some homemade Chinese food that made my kids jump for joy! 

They ate it, liked it and didn't die so I must be doing something right! 

I'm bored now.
