Adios Peeps!!

Alright...this will be my last blog for awhile. For Saturday morning we are off in the big blue sky to ears plus! Disney that is! I partially have my kids packed. I decided that since they are older they can help instead of me trying to do it all. SO I told them little by little, "Go pick out 7 pairs of socks, then underwear and bathing suits" and so on and so forth. So I just need to relook at their stuff tomorrow night and make sure we are ready to go. I haven't even started my or Rick's stuff yet. And I still need to get my toes finished and my eyebrows done. I'm sure I will be up until all hours of the night Friday getting everything together. Everything is always last minute, why should this be any different? Right? WELL...of course I plan on having a good time but wish me luck. The part that frightens me the most is the plane ride with Nate. God give him and I both the strength to get through it! Chase & I are both taking our digital cameras and my brother is taking two cards for his camera so you know I will be coming back with tons of pictures because I plan on taking pictures of EVERYTHING! Talk to you later! Have a great week. :)~

Do you see the plane?

The nose is off the ticker! On it's way! I think that is where my mind is as well. On it's way! My mind is definantely starting to race, thinking of all the things I need to start doing to get ready! Not like I'm packing for 5 people or anything. I think I am going to try and do some last minute shopping this evening and maybe pick up another pair of shorts for my kiddos. I could use another fat girl bathings suit too! Today is Administration Appreciation day. So to all of you that put up with all kinds of B/S like I's to you! Barbara and I are going to a little luncheon thing today! We've gone for the last 2 years.'s your gentle thought for the day...

Fairy Tale

This is the fairy tale that should have been read to us when we were little:

Once upon a time in a land far away, a beautiful, independent, self-assured princess happened upon a frog as she sat contemplating ecological issues on the shores of an unpolluted pond in a verdant meadow near her castle.

The frog hopped into the princess' lap and said: " Elegant Lady, I was once a handsome prince,
until an evil witch cast a spell upon me. One kiss from you, however, and I will turn back into the dapper, young prince that I am and then, my sweet, we can marry and set up housekeeping in your castle with my mother, where you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes, bear my children, and forever feel grateful and happy doing so. "

That night, as the princess dined sumptuously on lightly sauteed frog legs seasoned in a white wine and onion cream sauce, she chuckled and thought to herself:


I don't fuckin think so.

Where did the weekend go? NON-STOP! Saturday Chase had soccer practice from 8:00 AM until 9:30 and then there was the garage sale until noon, I had to finish Greta's baby book that I was making for her shower that started at 2:30! (I didn't finish until 12:45, nothing like cutting it close). Had to finish her diaper cake, get myself and my kids together to go to the shower and then off we went. There was a fenced in playground behind the building that we were having the shower at and after the cake of course the kids went out to play while Greta opened her presents. They were having a blast. I got some great pics of the kids playing. Chase & Tori were playing on the swings, swinging as high as they could and then jumping out to see who could land the furtherest. (is that a word)? I was just waiting for one of them to break an ankle and not be able to have a good time in Disney. Then we went shopping at the mall for a couple of hours to pick up some summer clothes for this next week. Left there, got pizza and went home. Didn't get there or eat until 8:00. So the kids were ready to go to bed and slept all night. Even Nate. He didn't get up until 8:30. I couldn't believe it. Got up Sunday morning, studied my bible lesson for the kids since I hadn't looked at it yet (oops!!), went to Church and afterwards, Chase and I went to Andover to the Garage Sale at Scrapfunattic. I couldn't hardly believe there was a line. It was absolutely crazy in there. But I got some good stuff and lot's of stuff for only $28.00! It was a mad house but I managed to make my way through. I saw Roeder and Tracy there. That was great because I love seeing them AND Tracy found some Disney stuff for me in a box that she was looking through. Got home about 2:00, ate lunch and cleaned up house. Played outside for a little bit, ate supper, cleaned up dishes, gave Nate a bath and then it was time for bed. WWHHHEEWWW!!! And now it's time to start all over again. Tori has practice Tuesday night, Wednesday Chase has a band concert at school, Thursday Rick is busy and Friday night is the concert. Somewhere between all of that I have got to find time to pack! So here's to a busy week.

Sandal Sisters

Instead of a Gentle Thought today I am sharing this email I received from someone. I have to admit that I was in a hurry when going to the doctor this morning and committed sin number 3.Enjoy:

Spring is’s that time of the year again!

Alright ladies, it's that time of year once again!!! I think we need to be reminded of a few things. So my sisters, PLEASE, raise your big toes and repeat after me below...

The Open Toed Shoe PledgeAs a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood, I pledge to follow the Rules when wearing sandals and other open-toe shoes:

1) I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not hang over and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill over the backs. And the sides and tops of my feet will not pudge out between the straps.

2) I will go polish-free or vow to keep the polish fresh, intact and chip-free.

3) I will not cheat and just touch up my big toe.

4) I will sand down any mounds of skin before they turn hard and yellow.

5) I will shave the hairs off my big toe.

6) I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend, coworker, mother, sister tells me the toe seam really will stay under my toes if I tuck it there. If a strap breaks, I won't duct-tape, pin, glue or tuck it back into place hoping it will stay put. I will get my shoe fixed or toss it.

7) I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend Dr. Scholl's if my feet need him.

8) I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes at Payless for the low, low price of $4.99 even if my feet are small enough to fit into the kids' sizes. This is out of concern fo r my safety, and the safety of others. No one can walk properly when standing in a pool of sweat and I would hate to take someone down with me as I fall and break my ankle.

9) I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes swell and begin to look like Vienna sausages.

10) I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend/sister/coworker when she asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear sandals. Someone has to tell her that her toes are as long as my fingers and no sandal makes creepy feet look good.

11) I will promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure that they actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while walking and I will swear NOT to slide or drag my feet while wearing them.
I will promise to go to my local nail salon at least once per season and have a real pedicure (they are about $15 or $20 and worth EVERY penny).

12) I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals that show sign s of wear... nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals.

Gentle thoughts for the day is anyone else tired of this WIND? You want to go out and enjoy the beautiful weather but you can't stand in it! I wonder if I could go out in the wind and stand sideways without falling over like they do in the movies. Nothing new going on here except pricing stuff for garage sale. I swear every year I say I am not having one and then I do. I received an email today with several "Gentle thoughts for the day" so I am going to start sharing. Here's today's (I think it's my favorite), enjoy:
"When I'm feeling down, I like to whistle. It makes the neighbor's dog run to the end of his chain and gag himself."

I am so excited? Why you ask? Because I just got the internet hooked up in my bedroom. That's right, I will probably never leave this room again and my children will get neglected, starve to death and tear the house to shred's but...I will be online!! HEE HEE!

Thank You

For all the comments about my hair. I think this lovely wind has carried my comments up to my hair dresser because she called me this morning to ask how my hair was. Either that or she could tell I was not to impressed when I left there Wednesday evening. Now, don't get me wrong... she really does cut good hair. And I have recommended her to alot of people. AND she does great with my kids and their hair. This is just a bad cut. She apologized all over herself and ask what she could do. I told her short of glueing my hair back on, NOTHING! Anyway...tomorrow morning Rick and I are hitting the garage so we can get it cleaned out. For many reasons:
1) I am having a garage sale next weekend and would like to be able to have it inside because of the weather
2) I would like to be able to park the vehicle inside, especially with the weather.
3) really needs it.
Not much more than that going on that I know of. Have a great weekend. And if you happen to think you see me this weekend and your not quite sure,'s me, it's the hair.

Mad doesn't even cover how upset I am about my hair. I was so excited to get it cut last night and I told her just like it was last time I was there and I have no hair left. She knows not to cut my hair around my face shorter than my chin or it makes my fat chubby little face look even fatter and even chubbier. I am fuming mad. I was pissed off at 3:00 this morning when I got up to pee and had to pass the mirror. My hair hasn't been this short in 10 years! AND 10 years ago my face wasn't THIS fat so it just looks even worse. that I have vented for the 1000 time I need to go on I guess. I'm sorry if I ruined anyone elses day!! :(

Hump day! Almost the weekend. Tonight Chase and I are getting our hair cut! I can't wait to get mine done. I went to long in between this time. But I think I am getting it cut at the perfect time this time. You know how you always like your haircut the best about 2 weeks after getting it cut? Well that is when I will be in Florida so maybe it won't look so bad for pictures. Oh well!!! Have a great Day!
