pete is patrick's favorite


I live on twitter and tumblr these days. Well, I live on twitter, and I creep on tumblr.

I'm shonna99 on both, in case you want to follow me (and don't already). I'm mostly all about One Direction lately. They've taken over my brain (SOUL) and I can't get away. You'll still find bandom, especially FOB and Panic (ALWAYS), but those damned 1D kids have been killing me lately. Teen Wolf is my new problem, so there's also that.

I miss livejournal. I miss my friends that didn't hop over to twitter.

Happy Saturday, bbs!

Wow, Livejournal. I keep promising to get back on here and read/post more, and then life gets in the way. I'm gonna try this thing again. I miss everyone WAY TOO MUCH.

Hmmm, I have a 5 1/2 year old. Spencer started kindergarten back in August. He's such a little smartypants and like five handfuls of awesome/trouble. If I survive his kindergarten year we will be golden.

Logan is turning 3 on October 25th. I CANNOT BELIEVE MY BABY IS GOING TO BE THREE. Boggles my mind. He is amazing and the sweetest child, honestly. Mr. "cuddle me mama!".

I have not been to a concert in approximately FOREVER. I miss shows like crazy. It is a serious withdrawal that I'm having here.

How's everyone around here? Talk to me, tell me how it goes in your lives!

I will leave you with a recent picture of my kiddos. Wow, how quickly they grow, huh?!?

Worst picture ever, but here's a shot of my hair after today's work....Caleb bleached just the front, I know it is hard to tell from this lovely phone picture. Also, it is quite a bit lighter than the photo indicates as well. We plan to lighten it once more, in the hopes of achieving a platinum/white/grey look. Also, he'll probably darken the rest of my hair again. Anyway, TADA!

Oh man, so my big kid is playing t-ball this year. Spencer will be turning 5 on the 27th of this month and I just don't understand where the time goes.

He's a member of team Angry Birds and I'm sitting here ordering red bird patches and looking at tiny black baseball pants online. Yes, I am team mom for the Angry Birds 5-6 year-old t-ball team.

I'm not gonna lie, I am super excited to see him in his little uniform, and watch him run around on the field having the time of his life.

Opening day is March 24th, so we have a float to decorate and a first game to play that day. Up til then we have so much practice and wow, when did this become my life again (my mom was Secretary, then Little League President back when my brother was a kid).

Anyway, HI ALL! Yay for t-ball! I'll post pics of him in his tiny uniform as soon as we have it!

Yay Winter!

I want ALL of the movies. All of them. The Hobbit. The Dark Knight Rises. Prometheus. Mission Impossible. Other movies I've seen trailers for....yeah ALL OF THEM.

I have so much sweet making and other Christmas stuffs to do tomorrow.

Someone should find me a babysitter for the day after Christmas. My moms are going to spend the day at Delta Downs and I REALLY WANNA GO. I don't have, like, MONEY, but I just wanna go and get away for the day. Is that so wrong?

Hey, I'm slowly sending out Christmas cards...if you want one from me (obviously LATE, but oh well), message me with your address, please :D.

Also, I ALWAYS want cards from y'all....just so you know. :D

Okie dokie, I'm off to wrap a couple of presents, read a little fic, then get to sleep. MUAH!

Originally posted by darkspirited1 at SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA
This comes from an article by rachelmanija entitled, Say Yes to Gay YA.
(click the link for the full article)

Our novel Stranger has five viewpoint characters; one, Yuki Nakamura, is
gay and has a boyfriend. Yuki's romance, like the heterosexual ones in
the novel, involves nothing more explicit than kissing.

An agent from a major agency, one which represents a bestselling YA novel in the same genre as ours, called us.

The agent offered to sign us on the condition that we make the gay
character straight, or else remove his viewpoint and all references to
his sexual orientation.

This isn't about that specific agent; we'd gotten other rewrite requests before this one. Previous agents had also offered to take a second look if we did rewrites… including cutting the viewpoint of Yuki, the gay character.

It's time to stand up and demand change. Spread the word everywhere if you are just as angry and outraged by this.

BB!Spencer's first day back to school!

Spencer started his new school year today. WOOHOO the afternoon 4-yr-old preschool class! He has been begging me to take him back to school for over a week now, but his didn't start until today! It is going to take some serious adjustment time getting used to him being in the afternoon and not morning class. I'll bet he's having a blast as we speak!

Sorry I haven't posted any more Patrick pics! My internet has been sooo ridiculously spotty lately. Seems to be working okay today, so hopefully I'll get more uploaded and posted this evening....if I don't fall asleep early that is. I'm still wretchedly ill. I'm really over being sick. It can go away now, thanks.

The boys and I ARE enjoying this gorgeous weather we're having. After several weeks of 100+ degree weather I'm glad to get some lows in the 50s and highs in the low 90s and very low humidity. Sounds like backyard time to me!
