Is anyone still out there?

I need to get back to this again... so here are a few updates...

  • I have found Pinterest - and LOVE it - do you know about this yet? Great place to find ideas and share ideas...

  • I spend most of my time on Facebook - Yes, i'm a junkie - I can't help it... YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT I'M UP TO!

  • We have recently received custody of my 11 year old nephew who is a sweety. So, now we are a household with 3 children - Alex is 14, Cody is 11 and Lauren is 10 (almost 11). It's funny the difference just one more makes to a household - but he brings alot to us.

  • I am still in the need of more cowbell - I just can't get enough of it!

    True Love

    But the greatest love - the love above all loves,
    Even greater than that of a mother...
    Is the tender, passionate, undying love,
    Of one beer drunken slob for another.
    ~Irish Ballad

    Happy St. Paddy's day y'all!

    So, my brother and sister in law have a foreign exchange student living with them right now from Switzerland. She's a really beautiful girl, Jael, and she's totally and completely into Juicy Couture. She LOVES that store and everything about it. So anytime that they are anywhere near one of those stores, they have to stop in and look around and let her browse. Well, my 8 year old nephew Luke is just not "digging" this so much and when they were about to walk into yet another Juicy store, he yells out "AH NO, I HATE JUICY COOTER." ROFL. I guess, Couture, is not one of those words that's on top of an 8 year olds list! hahh! I told him not to worry, he'd change his mind before too long...

    Seriously? Sleepover HELL.

    OK... So a slumber party for her 10th bday party was not my brightest moment. I'll take that one. We had a complete blast doing the scavenger hunt at the local mall, that was really fun. But 9 girls (that's including my sassy lou) coming over to spend the night after the party - NOT SO MUCH. So first, the scavenger hunt... Thank you so much Danielle - for helping me wrangle the girls at the mall - that was great of you and I couldn't have done it without you! I really, really appreciate it! ;) So, the scavenger hunt list had 40 items on it and we had a 1 hour time limit - there were all kinds of items on the list from things like a shopping bag with handles to taking a video of the entire team playing duck, duck, goose in the mall. Some of my other favorites were:
    • A photo of all of the team members washing their hands in the sink at the same time.
    • A photo of all of the team members riding a kiddie ride - all at once.
    • A video of the team singing "the barney song" in front of Abercombie and Fitch.
    • A photo of the team standing like mannequins in a store window.
    • A photo of the team sleeping on a mall bench.
    • A photo of the entire team wearing a feather boa.
    • A photo of the entire team wearing ugly hats.

    After the scavenger hunt, we came back to the house and all of the girls made their own personal pan pizzas with whatever toppings they wanted... that's when it all started to go downhill. I think there was just too much ... "downtime"?? I dunno - 9 preteen/teen girls in one house is just too much. "She looked at me funny", "She won't give me the blue candy", "She said she won't be my friend anymore!" WOW. I mean, seriously - there were no major fights or anything - just all these little things going on. AND, I think the worst offender was probably my very own sassy lou. YEP. nice. I just poured another glass of wine - what's a mom to do? :) sigh. That'll be the last big sleepover for a long time, i'll tell you that much. In anycase, I survived to tell about it, and be a warning to other moms out there who may be thinking about doing this - SEND THEM HOME! Please, heed my advice. hahh!

    Hope y'all are having a happy Monday!

    Vanity Cards

    I think we all need Vanity Cards like Chuck Lorre - Check this out.  You know at the end of his shows, like The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men - you see this brief 2 second flash up on the screen?  Have you seen it?  Well I have - I've seen it for awhile now and have wondered and wondered - what the hell is that?  Apparently these are his "views on life"  his rants and his raves.  Just his way to express himself.  What a riot!  I LOVE it! ;)  Some have been censored by the CBS censors, others are benign and just completely random... I've been flippin' thru and they have me cracking up! Seriously - I think we all need our 2 second vanity cards - might have a lot less frustrations in life!

    Jellyfish in a Jar

    So, my son is on a school trip in Atlanta. I sent him with $70.00. ($20.00 of that was his own and $50.00 was from mom and dad). He has to buy 2 lunches with that, and the rest of it is just for spending money. He's got a busy couple of days there - The Aquarium, the Coca-Cola company, Stone Mountain and Six-Flags. He has to buy lunch today at Stone mountain and lunch tomorrow at Six-Flags (we KNOW those are not cheap places to buy lunches at), and I guess - I just failed to mention that part to him. I just told him to be careful with his money and all that jazz.... so yeah - you guessed it, I talked to him last night and he has a whopping $23.00 left. I about freaked out. My first thought was that he was going to starve! hahh (over-protective mom, lol!) My little boy was going to starve away to nothing! ;) hah-hah! I said - What the heck did you spend all of your money on? He tells me he bought a super cool - JELLYFISH in a JAR - WTF? hahh - "it glows in the dark, mom!" I go off on this little rant about wasting his money, and how is he going to eat - and what the heck is he going to do with a jellyfish in a jar... and in this real quiet voice he says - "i was going to give it to you mom" - YEAH, right you were! God bless him - lil sweetheart. I felt bad last night, he's just having a good time and of course, he won't starve. I was just worried about him not having enough money for the rest of the trip and I just didn't express it enough to him before the trip. Well, if he runs out - he runs out. He'll still get breakfast and dinner - so he'll be fine, I'm sure. It certainly won't hurt him to skip a lunch! ;) Anyway, I hope he's having fun on his trip and he'll always be able to look back on his jellyfish in the jar and remember his ATL trip - Good times... good times... hmmmm...
