Rain rain

Quote of the day – "The tooth fairy teaches children that it is ok to sell body parts for money." David Richerby

Song of the day – "Songs about rain." Gary Allen

Well because it is raining of course.

Hmmm. I wasn't done with my post! LOL. I guess I am now. LOL. Fermi - yeas, it has been lovely. My window has been open for two nights with a towel on the sill, Just so I could listen to the pitter patter of the rain. Doc - well it is a good song. This comming from someone who grew up on heavy metal. Even though my preference was heavy metal I would deviate to clasical and jazz, and dance music, but never country or rap. LOL. Now I seem to like country. It could be due to lack of options in this area. We get two radio stations in good, counrty, and 80's overkill. Sigh. And... I can't remember your name.... Sell your liver? R U Nuts? After taking A and P and microbio and bio I and II; you couldn't even get me to go somewhere and give blood. No matter what they were paying for O-. hee hee.

Now for the rest of my post that got intruped by life the universe and everything. LOL. Wow. Brian called (that's where the post got intruped) and he wanted the sizes the girls are wearing. His sister is going to send them some stuff. And so is he. Really? I mean, his sister never forgets their b-days or any holiday, she sends them cards for everything. She is really cool. Amanda loves her to death. She can't remember meeting her but she does love to get mail. And Melissa sends her tons of cards. It is sweet. I wish I could remember to send her stuff. But Brian? Wow. It really floored me that he a) called b) was being civil c) was going to send something to both the girls. That was when I hit publish post instead of save as draft. All is well.

I decided to lay off nagging him and just answer his questions to what the girls were looking for that we had not got them yet. He did mention my cell phone and that he left a voice mail. I told him about my cellphones trip to the coffee cup. He roared and then busted on my coffee likes. "Well, your LG just decided it's charge wasn't good enough and went for the esspresso hit." this is where i make a funny frowny face at the phone... it is french roast... seatles best... not espresso. damnit. But I held my tounge, after all he was being civil.

Lets see, feed the horses twice today, feed the dogs twice, feed the kids and adults three times, never got to making fudge, moved Molly's bed into my room (that was yesterday but I need that for a reference point here in a minute), went through paper work and found phone contract where it states I did in fact take out a contract on my phone when I purchased it, moved the patterns into a storage box and out of the waxed cardboard box they've been in, put awy laundry, put books in one stack (the ones to sell next semester), got books ready (molly and I) for tomorrow, got lunches packed, made beds, washed ass, vacumed carpets, swept floor, spot mopped floor, did dishes a billion times (at least five times, glad we only ate three times) and sat down to have a cup of coffee and get back to this post.

Phone rings. It is Molly (she had gone grocery shopping with Sue and Harry and Lulu and no I did not do all that while they were gone, I made a pot of coffee) and she asked me to come and pick her up at the trash dump. WHAT? So, I drove down there (expecting the worse) only to find out that is as far as they made it and the truck started to act up. OK WHAT A RELIEF. SO, I packed everyone into the car and took them to the store. Harry drove the truck back to the house, I offered to follow him but he said no to take momma to the store. Sigh.

That is my life in a nutshell. That is what I do day in and day out. I am not complaining. It is like; I got a few minutes to myself and pooof I had to run out. And you know what I was going to do on that break? I was going to fill the tub up with hot water and take a long hot soak! Just me in a hot tub of bath salts....OOOOOOoooOOOoooOOooh. But nope. The kids got the hot water when we got home at 8pm. After dinner, I ran them a bath and stuck them in it. I forgot to turn the hotwater heater back on (energy saving tip - shut the breaker off on your hotwater heater when your not using it, and turn it on about 20 minutes before you take a bath - your electric bill will drop about 10 bucks) lets see... oh yea then I did dinner dishes. Sue used some hot water when she cleaned the oven... oh I bet you see where this is going. Anyway... I took a realllllllllly quick rise off, washed my butt and pitts and lol..... that was it! The water was like jumping into the Henry Hudson river in January. OMG.

Now to moving Molly's bed into my room. We never got re-arranged from summer and the energy crisis we faced with the electric bill jumping to outlandish prices. (when we moved all the bedrooms downstaris.) Yep. Everyone got lazy. LOL. We are actually talking about taking the second floor off of the house and builing a few more rooms on downstairs. Wow. We suck. Anyway. Molly is not about to sleep upstairs by herself. So, I moved her bed into my room. I had to so I have a spot to put the tree up. THE TREE. OMG. I am not ready to decorate for xmas yet. OMG OMG OGM.

Now back to Molly. LOL. Last night I did not sleep well. Lulu moved around like she was a fish in a tank. So, I got up about 20 times. One time was not Lulu's fault. LOL. I kept hearing Molly pass gas. Well one fart was a squeek. It made Ani bark. Oh it was funny. I was sitting here whispering, "Ani Hush" so a few minutes go by and Molly starts snoring and Ani about had a coniciption fit. I had to get up and put her in bed with Lulu and I. That made sleeping more fun because I had to check the 3 pound vipers location evertime Lulu moved so that Lulu did not roll over on her and squash her. DOGS, KIDS.... grrrr. Thank god the horses don't sleep inside.

So, I am sitting there talking to sue tonight. She is bitching about this green light on the air freshner and how it mvoes. She keeps saing, look at it,it is moving up , now tot the right... and it was just blinking. And I started to laugh. I couldn't help it. Sue was like, I am not loosing my mind, it is moving. So, I am like OOOOK.... laugh, laugh.... and she was getting mad. Then she is like what are you laughing at and I was like... Molly farting... and she started to laugh. She was like omg... my stomach hurts... did I ever tell you about when Molly farted and hollard... it is a silent but deadly and I told her to hold the covers down and she ripped them off of the bed? lOL,,, guess you ahd to be there. Molly was like all agasht over that one and sue was like, I meant hold them dwon next to your sides so the smell don't get out.... OUR CONVERSATIONS, eth? What do you talk about on a Sunday night? Bet it is not as fun.

What I was orginally going to post about was decorating the tree. The rain ruined it for this weekend. I couldn't exactally bring it in without ruining the box. GRRR. So I reckon when it dries up some I will haul that ginormous thing out.

Quote of the day- "Neurotics build castles in the air, psychotics live in them. My mother cleans them" Rita Rudner

Nuttin' For Christmas
By:S. Tepper, R. Bennett (c) 1955

I broke my bat on Johnny's head;
Somebody snitched on me.
I hid a frog in sister's bed;
Somebody snitched on me.
I spilled some ink on Mommy's rug;
I made Tommy eat a bug;
Bought some gum with a penny slug;
Somebody snitched on me.
Oh, I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I'm getting nuttin' for Christmas
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.
I put a tack on teacher's chair
somebody snitched on me.
I tied a knot in Susie's hair
somebody snitched on me.
I did a dance on Mommy's plants
climbed a tree and tore my pants
Filled the sugar bowl with ants
somebody snitched on me.
So, I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.
I won't be seeing Santa Claus;
Somebody snitched on me.
He won't come visit me because
Somebody snitched on me.
Next year I'll be going straight;
Next year I'll be good, just wait
I'd start now, but it's too late;
Somebody snitched on me.
So you better be good whatever you do
'Cause if you're bad, I'm warning you,
You'll get nuttin' for Christmas.

We survived

Check Spellingwe survived the shopping spree. three thirty came fast and i was not ready to part with my feather pillow and electric blanket to face the bitter cold and screaming mean people. but i did. I did it for sue and amanda. we picked up Karina along the way. wait let me back up. before we left the house, harry got in bed with Lulu, and I warmed the car up. LOL. I was cold. So we get there (I will post a pic later) and it is a mad house. They had all the lights off inside the store and the parking lot was backed up almost to the gas station at the main entrance. The cars were parked all the way back to the gas station (where I parked) LOL. When we were standing there grouped together, sue was wiggling her cart to and fro and I made the comment she was goign to use it as a battery ram. Hee hee. We had conversations with other bystanders about this. When the lights came on and the doors flicked open there was a rush of people and an uproar. I was like, wow. manny went with sue, karina went her way, and I said I would get the clothes. then we got seperated for good. LOL. I grabbed (and paid for) the clothes that sue wanted for harry. Well, OK... I spent $347. And what did i get. Not much. There was not really that much of a sale (the stuff i could get to) and the stuff I could get to was about gone. Thank god we got there when they opened. SIGH.

Happy Thanksgiving 2008

Quote of the day-"I don't call you handsome, sir, though I love you most dearly: far too dearly to flatter you. Don't flatter me." Charlotte Bronte (1816-1855)

Song of the day, "I would walk five hundred miles" The Proclaimers

Mood – Oddly Good – My cell phone came back to life. WOoohoooOooo


I have never been big on Thanksgiving. When I was younger I was not a big eater and even less of a big veggie eater. I really only liked a selective few members of my family (all of which were 3,000 miles away) and the ones I liked I didn't get to be around. Then as an older teenager we got to do Turkey Day with the step-family. I always tried to work and if I was not scheduled to work I would try switch a shift or call work and see if they needed me. I just was not happy on the big T. When I was younger there was the impending doom that my Grandfather had died within a close proximity to Thanksgiving and my grandmother never let him go. She grieved. And that meant a somber T day with burnt or overcooked food. When we lived near family in NY it was like… who is going to fight this year. When my mom married again it was spent with his family and the amount of people that showed up meant FIASCO time! Oh well. Down here T day has been nice. Because it has always just been us we have bought a turkey breast roast (why waste a whole bird?) And only cook the veggies we like. Sometimes we'd even cook a ham or buy a spiral cut ham to have as a secondary meat.

This year Sue felt it was important to have a bird. I was worried that in light of her heart attack a few weeks back that maybe she is feeling like this will be her last Thanksgiving. I kept looking at her yesterday as we did all the prep stuff and get all the things cooked we could. She read my mind. She said, "I just feel like it is important for the kids to know a true Thanksgiving and have a bird. That and we have extra people coming." Ok. Enough said.

Extra people being the two children I promised I wouldn't speak anymore about. They looked good and were on their best behavior. Their grandmother and her friend. Everyone got along.

The day turned out nice. We had a billion dishes of food on the table, way too many left-over's, and enough pies to make even the most athletic person go into a sugar coma. The kids were good (for the most part) and shared toys and PLAYED outside. The puppies were kept on the front porch (to their dismay) and Sue and I cooked for the most part of the morning. Everyone sat down to eat and everyone said grace.

It was in the moments of silence during Amanda's wording of grace I took a moment and prayed for someone I don't even know. I asked that he be watched over today and that all goes well in Tennessee. I was the last to say, "Amen". Amanda gave me a look but did not comment. Later when I was washing dishes and Karina was drying them, Amanda asked me to have a word with her. I stepped aside and she asked me what I was praying for. I told her that I knew someone on the internet that has one less member of this family and I said a special prayer for him. She kissed me and told me that was a nice thing to do. Sigh. Kids.

NO big news or events so to speak of. We did manage to eek out unscathed. Early to bed because of Black Friday tomorrow and we will be leaving the house at 4:15am to go and hunt a few bargains. I would like to know who decided that shopping was suppose to start at God's hour the day after you spent a week cooking and cleaning. Hummmm? I bet it was a man. Prolly the same man that invented the bra.

My deal Molly Amanda Rosebud proudly informed me that she has saved $59 and has a shopping list. I said, "You're going to get up at 3:30 am?" and she said no and giggled. She said, "You're silly. I am going to sleep in my clothes and get up when it is time to leave and brush my teeth and get in the car and sleep until we get to town." GRRRRRR. Well enough of that. I really am off to bed.

Good Night and Happy Holidays to all the bloggers I missed.

Fourth picture

I have been tagged by Doc over at the Blog Sanitarium . Normally I wouldn't partake in this sort of internet spam, but I really enjoyed his post and the theory behind what he was doing. I also like 24 crayons and felt this post was in good taste. The task is to post a picture from your my pictures on your computer. Write four things about the picture and then tag four blogger buddies. I went with my fourth pic in my photobucket. While I was waiting for the page to load my heart pounded in my chest. Please let it be something clean. Please don't be a picture of Jeter or Peanut.
1)It was my favorite pic of Amanda and I. Oh the Irony. The picture was taken the day her fever shot up to 104.3 F and the doctors advised to just let it run it's course.
2)I was afraid that she was going to die that day. I think the horror of being a parent reflects well in my eyes. I think there is a certain amount of pleading there too. 3)Despite her illness Molly was such a good patient. But heck, she was a water bug (and still is) and getting dunked in the tub a lot was just fun. We had been to the ER every night that week, we'd been to the doctor every day. While sitting in the ER the last time, I ran into a DR friend of mine (Dr. Taylor) and we were discussing Molly and what was going on.

4)What I learned. You cannot eat Lima beans out of the garden. You must boil them, drain them, and then boil them to your taste. If you don't, Lima beans naturally produce arsenic. I had been poisoning my child and didn't even know it.

I loved that picture. I had it as my profile picture forever and a day. Thanks Doc. I enjoyed bringing that picture up and viewing it again. My little Molly and Me.
Now I tag, NYPINTA, WOW, Renie, and LL. And because LL want;s to be a turd, I will now tag Lady Holiday in place of him. Sigh. men. You have to pick your 4th picture in your photo album and post it and write a tidbit about it.


cellphone CPR

I joined the barracks of cellphone dummies! I dropped my cellphone in my coffee cup on the way to school today. SIGH. While driving I took the phone apart and attempted to dry it off. No go. When I got here (to school) I put the phone back together and turned it on. It rapidly turned itself on and off like it had been invaded by little green men (or brown if you count the coffee stains).

Sigh. SO, now I smell like coffee. I have brown coffee stains on my pants where I was wipping my phone off on my pants leg.


I do have a contract on the phone. I don't remember what the deductable is. SIGH.

the long walk of despair

Most normal people will walk for pleasure or walk the dog. Oh no, not me. I had a reality break about just how out of shape I am today. Comanche went down. I took the hose to her and made her drink. I got her up and I walked her. And walked her. Up the road, down the road, up the drive, down the drive, around the front yard, weaved in and out of the pecan tree's, then exhauseted around the back yard. My uncle took over walking her when I went to get the kids and my aunt called the vet. I stopped by the vet and got two shots for her. I came home and gave her a shot and then took over walking her. Then Freckles went down. 4 or 5 times. He would try to keep up with us walking and just poof he was down. So I gave him the other shot and walked Comanche ot the back and tied her head up so she couldn't lie down. I went back and made Freckles get up and walked him. I walked them until about seven tonight and just couldn't do anymore. Comanche went to drinking water and Freckles started to nip and try to play. I figured they were out of deep water. I came in and ate dinner and got the kids their baths. Sue had fed them, and got Manny on task with her homework. Lulu was just getting out of the tub when I got in.

I am going to bed. Night.

Photo blog

When you have children, you can do things like THIS to them, please note, Lulu looks very thrilled to be my child in these pic's. Honest she does! LOL. But the flip side is that I did the same thing to Amanda when she was this age. I made this Christmas Elf for Amanda, then we wrapped up little candies and put them in a basket, and we went to my job (at the time) and she had to hand out individually wrapped candies to the people I worked with. TO make that worse, LOL, I had someone with me video taping it. :) Arn't I a lovely mommy? To this day Molly gets mad if we play the tape. Oh the loving of digital cameras. LOL. I can take pic's and have instant gratification.

Here are some of the puppies I never got around to posting

Here is Molly's Christmas Village, well half of it, and then a zoom of two of my favorite pieces of it. Please note these are not done getting put up. They are just sitting there. Things have to get moved into the right places and lights have to be put in, etc.

Here are some of the larger village

And here are some pieces that got put in my room. *note* we lost the large entertainment center over the summer so, I have no place to put them all together. It is going to be a challenge this year to get it all together.
OOOH OOOH how about this, we finally got fall ;) Well maybe later of the fall pic's, photobucket decided it won't let me in. GRRR. I will be looking for a new image host. Photobucket does not even have a way to contact them. This happens way to much for my user pleasure. I am tired of Photobucket. THis is crap.

The super surreal

Song of the day: "To Be With You" Mr. Big

Quote of the day: "Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn." Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896)

Free Dictionary word of the day: Remiss

Mood: Muh Cup runnith over

Horoscope: Ha. Capricorn. You look it up.

We went and saw High School Musical 3. I am so happy this is the last one. LOL. OMG. I have a lot to say but it is almost midnight and I want a few hours of sleep before some wild bohemian wakes me up. Ran into the neighbors that hate me at Walmart and one of them hugged Sue, ran into my ex-boss that was kind of sort of INSANE at the movie theater and she hugged me, I've been hugged online… OMG I hope I don't get herpes of the titties! LOL. Joking. Smile, you know you wanna.

Every year I try to come up with a holiday story to share with my friends and family. Some times I am successful and other times the thought just flops. I heard two this week. Both stories are touching in their own way.

Story one, donated from my friend Brad that works at and internet help desk. When he started working there, his boss passed this story on to him. It goes back to when computers still had the 3.5 floppy drives.

An elderly woman called the call center. She told the representative (I think his name was Steve or it will be for the purpose of this story) that she was doing her Christmas shopping on the internet. Her son had bought her a computer over the summer and had spent time with her showing her how to work the computer and the internet. This was her first year doing her Christmas shopping on it and that she had decided to do it because she was old and was assured by her credit card issuer that it was safe. She said she was really enjoying it until check out. She said that she liked being able to have her coffee and never leave her chair while she was shopping. She also liked being able to use her clean bathroom instead of a questionable one at the mall. Anyway, Steve asked her what happened at check out. The woman said, "Well, the computer said to submit payment and I looked all over the computer and saw that little slot in the front, so I put my credit card in there. Now it won't give it back. What do I do?"

Please keep that in mind when you do your holiday shopping.

Second story:

My friend Paul is around 60. He and his wife have been married for 43 years. They decided to get a divorce. He called their son in Texas this morning. He told his son that they were getting a divorce and he was sick of hearing his wife's mouth, the kids were grown and gone, and then the two got into a phone fight. Paul got kind of irate and yelled at his son that he was tired of talking about it, he could call his sister and hung up the phone. So, Paul Jr. calls up Pam in Colorado. He yells at his sister about what their dad said. Pam tell's him to hold that thought and hangs up and call's their parents. Paul answers the phone and Pam starts yelling and screaming at him that they are not going to get a divorce after 40 something years of marriage and to not do another thing until she and Paul can get there on Saturday and hangs up the phone. Paul gently places the telephone on the receiver and say's to his wife, "Honey the kids will be here for Thanksgiving and they are paying their own way!"

And WoW is cussing me because she just spit her coffee all over the computer monitor. Sawwwry. I heard it on the radio.

Oh and I talked to my mom today. Umm hmmm.

Divine intervention?

Mood: I've had better moods
Song of the day, "Out of Touch" by Hall n Oats
Quote of the day, "A man should never be ashamed to own that he has been in the wrong, which is but saying...that he is wiser today than yesterday." Jonathan Swift(1667-1745)

Cowinkie Dink? I have been laminating about finding a new doctor for Sue. And this thought was plaguing me as I drove into the parking lot of the College Library yesterday. I said out loud (yes damn it I was talking to myself) "I guess a little DIVINE intervention would help." Parked my car, walked into the library, found and empty study room.... and what lay upon the table?

A freebie. A directory of doctors for Emmanuel county. This on the heels of studying L. Ron Hubbard's introduction to Scientology. Oh My.

Second Oddity of the week. Yea, like I've got a normal life to call this week f**ked. Ha. Anyway, ya know, I got this email from an estranged friend. The email stated a by the by in referral to a 20 year high school reunion. I got out my class ring and cringed when I looked at the date. Um. urm. Really now. Wait a cotton picking minute.

I SAID DIVINE INTERVENTION... that does not mean... throw my AGE in my face. Does it? LOL. Grrr. Thanks.

So, now I am feeding my depression with a great big, over sized, chewy, chocolaty, homemade, fresh, BROWNIE and washing it down with a cool glass of milk.

So, anyway... I have been doing a lot of studying. Can't cha all tell? Lol, I've strayed from my dearest blog! I've strayed from my blogger friends that I ever so enjoy reading. I've strayed to the library at EGC at every hour I can squeeze in. I would love to get a bunch of A's this semester. As it looks it will be, B- Bio, A or B in Psych Adjustment, C in Intermediate Spanish (maybe a B, but I don't know if I can pull that out of my ass at this late of a date). I would like to... HA.

Spanish has been diabolical this semester. Every semester it is hard but I feel like I've learned and accomplished something. This semester in Intermediate Spanish has been unadulterated hell. Pure honest unforgiving hell. And the worse thing? I don't know if I've learned a thing. Nope. Well, por and para but that was not on the exam. LOL. Figures. It is like; all the sudden I am getting things in this chapter and everyone else is floundering. That makes complete sense. Right? Uth huh, NOT. LOL. I have one more spanish class to do and man, I don't know. I just don't know.

I am as selfish as a pole-cat wanting to have an orgasm

Yep. Yes indeedy.

Song of the day, "Here I go again." By Whitesnake

Mood – irate as the devil in an ice storm, in January, in the middle of Antarctica.

Molly brought home a bad progress report. Should that ruin my day? No. What pissed me off was walking her into the school and being berated by her two bit old bitty teachers. It took me an hour to get back out to my car. Then when I pick up Molly I get the actual 9 week progress report. Hmm. Eth? Um. Ok. Out of the six subjects listed she has 4 A's, 1 B, 1 F. An F? What? I look at the breakdown of the 49%. It is in Math. What? Did I read that subject right, Molly fail math? The same child that did statistic's with me over the summer and broke down and explained certain rules? What? I read the grades. Ranging from 88 to a 13 to a 0 and it was the 13 that reached up and slapped me in the face.

I went over the 20 something grades in math and asked Molly specific questions. Her reply? "My brain just don't work that fast." Do what? Her highest grade was in basic division (which they just started last week) and her lowest was the math facts test on simple multiplication (she know's her times tables, I went over them tonight with her and timed her, she answered something like 112 in 5 minutes for me).

To make it worse, now because she "goes off into lala land" I have to take her to a psychologist and have her re-tested for Autism (and variations thereof), learning disorders, mental retardation, behavioral problems, and ADD. Fine. But you know what? I have already been there, done that, and there is nothing wrong with her. But I get to do it again. I admit, there is something wrong; but I think it goes hand and hand with daydreaming. I could be wrong. I mean after all, I have been wrong before. But I would like to know if that little black jack ass that spit in her face a few weeks ago had to go to a psychologist and get evaluated. I bet he didn't. After all he IS black and his people have been repressed for generations. Sorry if that sounds prejudice but it is meant to be. And that is not like me, but right now, that is how I feel. Sorry if I offend anyone, I am not referring to an entire culture, just one family in specific that used that phrase first. If anything my prejudice is against ignorant people and liars, just a clarification. (oh yea and bad drivers, I just flat hate road idiots.)

The first thing that everyone said to me was to spank her. Guess what. I didn't. I don't think that is the answer. Besides, as mad as I am and disappointed to boot, I don't think I am the person that should deal out a spanking. I really don't. I also don't think it is the answer because I don't think this is behavior. I think this is some boredom and testing the waters to see what she can get away with in this school and with this set of administrators. I lean more on the boredom part. Especially when the teachers themselves tell me she needs to be tested for the gifted program because she is smart as a whip as long as she don't have to write the answers down. She can verbally tell you the answer to anything and the geographic region it originated from or at least a history of the topic. But they can't test her for Galaxy or Gifted if her grades are not indicative of her ability.

There you go. That's all I got for today. Hope yawl's lives are going better.

Can you say crazy sexy cool?

Well ok then, how about hectic? I have been busy. The kids are sick, I am up several time a night checking on Sue, and working like heck (still and until December 11) on my Spanish. I really don't want to have to take the final! LOL.

My finals are December 8-11. I can't believe this year is almost over. Molly informed me today that there are five weeks left of school until her Christmas break. Wow. That is it? Santa is so not ready! Or we are not ready for Santa. I have not done a thing to decorate yet and normally I'd at least have had some of the villages up! OMG, this sucks!

That is about it. I will try to get around to visiting blogs and posting comments over the next few nights but tonight I am going to bed. I am tired and lulu is already asleep! It is only 8:39 pm and I feel likei t should be oooh midnight! But I have been using my brain all day. LOL. You know how that goes. Cranium overload. See you soon, I haven't forgotten anyone.

Everyone is just fine

First I would like a definition of the word Fine and as it pertains to the human race. Then I would like to know how everyone can be Fine in the wake of some really awful things. I wanted to continue my post today with a real patriotic act of writing. But yesterday a few things came into play most of them ending in the term that "So, n, So is just fine." And that made me slightly irate. First off, Sue had a doctor's appointment that she has been putting off. This was for a stress test. Ok. FINE. The stress test revealed that she has recently had a Heart Attack. Not so FINE anymore. But if you ask her she will tell you that she is tired but feels fine. There is that damn word again. The word of the day, the month, the year, and of my generation is Fine. Maybe I am the only one not down with this.

I recorded this blog on my micro recorder but my headphones are in the car and everyone is in bed. So, I am winging this. The next stage of fine came while Sue was telling me about the heart attack that she was unaware that she had. My cousin Robin called. Her husband had been in a car accident over the weekend and broke both his shoulders and his pelvic bone. He was discharged from the hospital and home, feeling kind of sore but he was fine. *)(($$#@@@@^!

Let me pause here to tell you about Craig (Robin's husband). Craig is the person that everyone wants in their family. And really all the people in our family have done a really great job of picking out spouses, none of the married in members of our family would I ever speak ill of or believe ill words about. I must reiterate that Craig is a fantastic person. He works for the local Police Department in the town that they live in. He is a dedicated father and husband. He is very original. He has a sense of humor, likes strange restaurants, never complains (that I have ever heard) and is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. OK, well I guess just the one football flaw, but a well rounded wholesome and honest person. He is a token to our family. A few years ago he got injured on a foot pursuit and upon returning to work was given a different rank and a desk position on the force. When Robin called I was trying to put two and one together about Sue and I half heard what Sue was repeating that Robin was saying. The jist of what happened is this; he was in pursuit of someone and lost control of the cruiser. In the moment of decision that we sometimes have in an accident situation, he was given the option of hitting a sign or running into the creek. The creek in that area is very deep and has a very strong current. He hit the sign and then the cruiser went down an embankment. It is unknown how long he sat there. A doctor on his way to work happened to see the cruiser lights and stopped to investigate. He called 911 and went to Craig's aid. He was in the right place at the right time doing the right thing and that doctor should be recognized. Not many people would have stopped. Even fewer would have chanced walking down an embankment and into the scene of an accident to save someone. Craig was truly trapped. He couldn't move his arms to radio in for help.

I pause here to thank that doctor. You don't know the high quality of a person you saved that day and I hope one day that someone repays you. I repay you by giving you your badge and making you an official member of the human race. There are few people that deserve that honor. You do. You took the time to do the right thing and acted with no regard for your own safety. You saw someone in imminent danger and went to help. Thank you.

Although banged up, Craig was feeling fine. When Sue got off the phone, she said to me that Harry had asked her to call all the girls and my mother and pass on that she had a Heart Attack. She really didn't want to. Sue is like that. She didn't want to call Carol because Carol is just finishing up her Chemo treatments from her breast cancer. The sight of the Chemo treatment is raw and there is a lot of execrating pain that goes with that but she is just fine. Carol is a trouper. I don't know if I am a strong enough person to look down the barrel of cancer and be fine. I know I'm not. Sue doesn't want to call her sister Mary because Mary's husband just finished up with treatment for prostate cancer but he is also doing fine. Sue don't want to call my mother (her other sister) because my mother is battling diabetes (life style related, all them beers) and despite two knee replacements and an unstable mental demeanor, she is also doing fine. And the list goes on. Those are the critical cases of FINE. But I am not fine with any of this. We have a good family. We are A respectful family. We are A family that is genetically strong and has basically gone through generations in grace and honor. We don't deserve this ration of bad things that we are being dealt. Sue doesn't deserve to be worrying about a heart problem at 66 years old.

Mentally I am stable right now. A little tired. A little worried. But all in all I am in fact just fine.

After I wrote this post on my micro-recorder I got a call from my school friend Eva. She was on her way to see an oncologist about a female problem her doctor caught and she needed to chat. I asked how her grandchild with CP is doing. She said that the little girl is going in December to have all of her teeth removed. I realized that I have a lot to be grateful for. I got to thinking about Eva and her family and the hardships they will be going through this holiday season and my best wishes go out to them. I got to thinking about Mal and her baby that is blind and what a horrible thing that must be to go through. But both of these women are fine. And those made me stop and think about my own morality. Am I really fine or am I just lucky? I am honored to be here, I am honored to be sharing this, and I am flattered beyond reasonable doubt about the blessings in my life.

A picture is worth a thousand words

To a certain blogger buddy that likes the pumpkin milkshakes, here is this weeks special at the college cafe, it is pumpkin cheesecake. I was not in favor of this dish, I will admit that it looks real nice, but it tasted like a weak pumpkin pie with a cheesecake consistancy but not the tang you expect from cheesecake. But don't trust my taste buds here, everyone else that had tried it LOVED it. And I will give Kat (the woman that runs the cafe) credit, she cooks really good food and fantastic deserts. This pie looked really nice, she has a great presentation; almost artistic. What really ruined the thought of trying it again (after all they say if you don't like something try it 7 times and you aquire a taste for it) was the fact that when I was walking to my car, I burped and then ... I TASTED pumpkin really strong. This taste kept repeating itself everytime I burped and for whatever the reason... LOL... the two bites I had of it gave me that kind of gas! Thank God I didn't fart at Molly's Veterans day assembly because if it tasted like pumpkin repeating itself what on earth would it have smelt like!!!!! OK bad immage! Here is the pic of the pie and pic's of Molly's assembly will follow when the other parent (that remembered his camera... my camera phone just would not zoom good enough for assembly pictures) gets around to emailing me.

Happy Veterans Day

freedom should soar like the mighty bald eagle. It should rise up out of the dregs of disparity like a pheonix
Freedom should look over the fellow citizens without judgement and with great intrest
Freedom should never be questioned or screwed with by terrorist and raciest

Blurred should never be the lines of freedom.

**in other news. Today is Ruby Tuesday. Today is Eureka un-Tuesday seeing they won't have anything new until '09 due to the writes strike, and today is Paris Hilton's BFF show on MTV I think at ten pm. :)

Response to an email

The change of living on a beach to rual Georgia. The first transaction was moving from a tempid degree beach area to upstate NY in Feburary. That was a cultural shock if ever there was one. I arrive to NY in a mini skirt and an OP jacket. Let me tell you that this Valley Girl proceeded to freeze my bahunna's off until I moved to Georgia in 1999. The transition to Georgia Rual life was astronomical. the people down here are slow, use improper english, follow no rules of the road, um... southern hospitality is a way for them to dig up dirt and stab you in the back at the first chance they can, um CLICKS ClICHEs.... omg. There are two things that save grace down here, TYBEE ISLAND.... oooooh a beach with real beach people because beache ppl don't change from region to region, they remain the same; and the weather. I don't miss the snow.

I often reflect on California and ponder if I should go home. I miss it. I just don't know if I could live the life style I can afford here (there). I am considering when I get my Doctrates degree to pay for the lisence there as well as here and in NY. Maybe even Colorado. I miss the way the sun rises over the beach, I miss the action at the pier, I miss the genuine people, and the smell of morango valley when we passed trhough it on road trips. I miss the way the sun sets on the desert and the way it smelled after a rain. I miss suntans and freedom. Not a day goes by that I don't yearn for the sights and smells of the areas of California that I ventured in my youth. I would like to see Sequia National forest again and I want to take my kids there. I favor Disneyland in Ca to Disneyworld in Fl. Stuff like that. It has been ten or eleven years sence I've been back to Cali! And the memories are still vivid.

I don't miss the trafic. When we have more then five cars in a row down here you got a traffic jam! Can you imagine the 404 jamed up with 10 cars (that are not involved in an accident or high speed chase?)

Sunday November 9th, 2008

What an adventure today! Lets see, we left the house at 8:30am to go grocery shopping and got home at 3:40 p.m. Fun? It is always an adventure going to Dublin with Sue and the Kids. First stop BigLots and we picked up a few things. Then we went to Shoneys for breakfast. Both Molly and Lulu suprised me by getting seconds at the breakfast buffet. Maybe I don't feed them enough! LOL. Wow.

Then onto the big Walmart. Where we saw this.

Lulu was like, :Whats that:
Molly:uth a pink cat:
lulu: Uth no:

I think I got most of my walmart bingo. LOL. I din't continue to snap pictures tho! First stop was the potty and I had to deviate to the back of the store! they have the rest room conviently located next to the toys. This was around noon that we finally made it to the grocery store. I call walmart the grocery store because they have managed to close down every grocery store in all these small towns. Then they go and jack their prices up because they have a monopoly. I wish the gvt could go in and shut them down. Honest to god. They are not the store that wally stated. It used to be the american store. You could go in there and purchase thing made in america, only. SIGH. Now your prolly getting lead poision just walking into the store. Such is life.

We bought the bulk for the month. Needless to say the back of the jeep was not big enough and we ended up having groceries packed around the car seat, the floor by the car seat and the floor around molly. But damn, didn't I just go grocery shopping a few days ago?

I could see the rational of this if we sat around and ate all day or even if we cooked elaborate meals. But we don't.

Food for the day: on a regular basis
Cereal for breakfast (weekends french toast made from stale bread, panacakes, sausage/bacon eggs and orange juice)
Lunch - school - manny bags it, lulu's is provided, I either bag it or get something at the school.
Dinner- Misc and depending on time. If we are late getitng in then it is hot dogs and mac and cheese for the kids and usually i skip dinner. Sue and Harry eat early on the days we are late. On time days, a frozen dinner, spag, kelly burgers, or some breakfasty thing like bacon and eggs
Desert- rarely although we have been hitting the sweets hard this last month

Seee? But I am going to keep track of it this week, who eats what!

Puppies were funny tonight. Molly let them all out while we brought in groceries. Except Scarlet. She went in the outide cage. Everyone took time to love and play with each puppy. Bear is a hambone, Ani is all the sudden terrible jealous over Scarlet, Scarlet is a dram queen and T is T. LOL. Scarlet's ears look really good. I am please with how they are healing and I will post a pic of them as soon as I get a chance to take one.

That is it in the world of Jenn. Going broke because we gotta feed our guts.

the story of "P"

Song of the day, "All summer long" -performed by Kidd Rock

Quote of the day, "When you finally get around to doing what you didn't want to do and find out that it didn't take very long to do it; then you have to stop and wonder what in the hell you were proscratinating about anyway." - Jenn Ganoe after sorting the laundry on 11/7/2008.

I did laundry on Sunday November 2nd. I would like to know where it has all come from. I have washed 4 loads now, two from my bed (lulu peed her diaper and soaked the bed and the blankets ... ugh), and two from the laundry basket in the shed. So, I went around the house and collected clothes from here and there and the bathroom hamper and everything (except the dogs blankets) are in the laundry room waiting to be washed. WtF. So, maybe I am absent minded and I did the laundry the weekend before. I don't know. But I am going to do this. I am going to do the laundry and I am going to make how many loads I did on the calender. Ha. Then I am going to sort the clean clothes tonight and set out outfits for my kids for the week. lets see how that goes. I know Lulu goes through a lot. She has to have a clean set of clothes sent to the day care every day for "accidents". But this is unreal the amount of laundry we have. I have worn three pairs of jeans this week (one pair of which I have on now) and a clean shirt every day. Clean unmentionables and clean socks. Amanda must have 20 pairs of unmentionables in the wash and 9 different outfits. Lulu has about ... two loads of outfits etc. Sue and Harry prolly have about a load (not that I seperate wash loads by person, lol, they get sorted by color) and a load of towels. Now, I know for a fact that Sue did dog blankets and towels eariler this week. I know it, I just can't remember what day she did them. And sadly it has been a poor shower week! We got baths on Su/M/W/Th (that is the kids and i, don't know when sue and harry bathed) so... ok... towels maybe. But the rest is ludicras.

Dispite my best judgment I came home this morning per sue's request. I wanted to stay in town and work on my studies. I came home and washed chloe for her trip. I then blew her dry and used the flea spray/doggie deordant on her. I fitted her harness to her and put the rabies tag on it. Then sue put her sweater on. well wait, sue helped me wash her and put the harness on her! Chloe then promptly shit on the floor. OOOOOOHHHH BAD DOG. I put all of Chloe's papers in one envelope to go to the airport and let her play some. I went to the trouble of getting her a tranquilizer and I just realized I forgot to give it to her and forgot to send it with Sue. Grrrr.

I am having to keep Scarlet seperated from the other puppies. She don't have am E-collar on like T did and the other dogs all want to sniff and lick her. But if any of them so much as look at her she goes to scraming. Ugh. She didn't sleep much last night, none of us did. Putting her in the shed didn't work. Sue ended up putting her in bed with her and then that was iffy, every time her ears got touched by the blanket she went to screaming. Scarlet is the perfect name for her as she is such a drama-qqueen. You can't even touch her where she got her shots she yells. Grrr. I should have shipped that one to Betty and not Chloe!

good grief! Did I type or what? I have an hour and ten minutes before I have to leave the house to get the kids. Brian's check did not come today. I have a 110 things to do in the next hour. TTFN

I have no idea what to call this post. LOL.

Chloe goes to California tomorrow. wooohoo one mouth less to feed! Really she has to go, everyone is getting attached to her. She is so soft, very well mannered, very pretty, and just a puppy that anyone can like. I am afraid that Betty's hubby won't like her. Chloe likes men. She also likes to dig. Dale spent a lot of money on their lawn... Get where I am going?

Long day at the college today. Ugh. Philly brought in my cheesecake. She made a classic NY Style one and it was fab! I ate two pieces of it! Piggy me. I had one after dinner and then I just had the second a few minutes before sitting down to write this. Yep. That cheesecake won't last the weekend here. Sue also had a piece. She told me, "That is better then sex." so I emailed Philly, "Sue said that you need to bring the other cheesecake into me tomorrow. Because if Mr M (Phillys hubby) finds out that it is better then sex he will throw it away and that is a waste of some good groceries." :) I will let ya'll know if she does, but for some reason I don't think she will believe me.

That is just a standing thing here. If something turns out real good, the first person to try it will say, "No good, don't eat it" and well that might work on some poeple and it did work the first time I tried using it down here, but they are on to me. LOL.

I picked Scarlet up today. I wish I'd left her a few more days. All that puppy does is YELP. Granted she has a reason right now, she got a shot and her ears clipped. BUT.... I am about ready to duct tape her &(()*(#)*# mouth shut. In all honesty I would never do that but I might put her in the paper for sale for $500 or $600 and that will cover her cost, her shots, and her ears. I can always get another. There is just no reason to keep a dog that no one can stand. OMG. I ain't never seen the likes of an animal like this.

I cornered Brian on the phone this afternoon. He never sent the check but that was about what I figured. But ya know what? He sunk his boat here. No longer will he be welcomed at this house. If he wants to visit his daughter, he can rent his self a car and drive ehre from which ever airport he flies into. then he can put up the cost for a hotel. Then he can drive over here every day he is in Ga to see her and leave at bed time. There will be no more catering to Brian. And there will be no more of Brian staying here and getting shitfaced every night. I am done with his bullshit and so is everyone else in this house. I left him for a reason 9.5 years ago. And now everyone is really seeing that perhaps I was not so irrational as they once suspected. I mean he has come close a few times to showing his true colors but alas he struck gold over the last few weeks.

I used the money that came in for child support today to replace that tire. Good timing too. When the guy put it up on the rack the tire blew. Poor fellow jumped back (as did everyone in the waiting room) I priced the repair for the upper ball joints while I was there. $430 plus taxes to have it done after market, $618 to have it done with Chrysler parts. I think the big oak tree down the road looks like a fantastic place to park it at about 75 MPH.

I guess that is about it. Boring day to blog about most of it was studies orientated. Grrr.

good vibrations

I admit it was eerie to drive into school today and have it be an utter ghost town. Creepy. I even text messaged someone from the red light and asked if it was a holiday. She called me back and informed me of the wide spread parties last night due to the election. Oh. I went to one a few years decades ago when I was covering an election for my mother. She couldn't be at both the local democratic convention and republican one at the same time. I went to the republican one. That was when the first Geo Bush got voted in and the place went wild. I stayed and covered the convention until the votes were talled up to the number needed for the win and then I went to the hut of a office that The Daily Mail called an office and wrote my article in the dark. I did this because of the border line riots down the street. My mom called on the back door number and asked me to go and cover the caos and I was like... um.. no. LOL. So, I understood what was meant by partying. Needless to say there were a lot of people absent at the school today. I don't remember Obama saying anything about boosting the tution to those who fail out due to excessive election partying. Congradulations Obama. I will say that due to the election I have received a bunch of tasteless text messages. :( And yes I did laugh at most of them. I do however refuse to pass them on.

The sci-fi world has suffered a great loss today with the death of Michael Crichton. I have always enjoyed his books and his television/movie creations. I send my condolences to his family and friends.

Shithead still has not sent the money for the repair bill. He said he sent it last Tuesday. It would have been here on Friday if he did. I called him on Friday and he swore he sent it. Well that is all good but Harry wants his money back and wtf, why say you did or are going to do something if that is or was never the intention.

The puppies that are staying here all got a bath today. I picked Bear up and he just had a stank on him, so then T came over and a familar odor of ick arose, I didnt bother to smell Ani, I just hauled them in one at a time and gave them baths. I will wait on Chloe until Friday morning. I am going to take the blow drier to her on warm and dry her/ fluff her. I pick Scarlet up from the vet tomorrow. Nobody is looking forward to it. LOL. She is such a screamer! I can't imagine how she is gonna be with her "boo-boo's" ugh.

Good Vibrations is how I feel in general. I have felt great sence the time change. I have woke up feeling like I got some sleep. The night we "Fell back an hour" was rough. I didn't feel good. Lulu got up. Harry took her. I lied back down. Then I got up and Harry went to bed. Lulu fell asleep and I put her to bed then I started to cough. My nose started to run. My eyes started to water. I started to sneeze. Every time I got comefortable I was up. I saw two o'clock the first and second time. then I saw three o'clock and four and five... then I fell asleep until seven thirty and woke up and felt remarkably refreshed. GO FIGURE THAT ONE OUT. But this whole week I have been getting up and I am ready. Except for yesterday, I felt like that but I reached full mental capacity early... oh well.

I demand a recount

Now this is political stupidity. The polls closed and 0% of the precints had reported and both Iowa and New Mexico called their states democratic. BULLFUCKINGSHIT. This election is so fixed. You know what? I hope McCain wins just to fix the stupid bastards that are giving their electorial votes up before their state has even reported. Yup. I didn't vote for either of them. Just for the record. I voted for some obscured name I don't even remember.


exhaustion creeping up

no wait, it crept up last week, exhaustion is now settling in. There are three full weeks left of school. Four if you count the week we have three days off for Thanksgiving. My mind reached full capacity this morning. I bombed my spanish exam, I just drew a blank. Not any 'ol ADDHD blank... Oh no. Copy paper blank. Crisp clean white noise blank. I couldn't even clear my head by blinking my eyes or going to the bathroom and splashing ice cold water on my face. Nope. Nadda. Nilch. And the problem with that is (before you crumble me up and throw me away) I knew the stuff. I was more ready for this exam then for any test I have taken in any subject in three hard semesters.

My Psych Adjustment class today made me really question my parenting skills. Reading the chapter last week started the questioning but the discussion in class today... ooooohhh boy. I have like 7 chapters I will be posting over at my edjamcation melt down blog... lol.. when... oh hell when I get the damn things typeed up and posted to the class then I will move a copy over to the online. That blog did not work out how i'd planned it to this semester. There is always next semester and oh the 30 hours or so that I still owe to my bachlors degree. Back to the parenting thing... So, I grilled Molly after school. She was like... um... whats up with you? LOL. I asked her specific questions worded so that I did not put her on the defense and she was like... no... the only time i feel lonely is at school but I am the new kid and that has a lot to do with things. Which, helped but didn't. I think I am going to get her involved in some after school programs. I don't want the poor girl to be a complete invert.

Oooh NYPINTA have you lost it?

Oooh it kills me. LOL. Really. Honest. NYPITA announced that she is going to try to write a novel in thirty days as part of NaNoWriMo . Wow. Heavy duty. Really. That is a big task to take on, writing 175 pages or 50,000 words in thirty days. If I were not boondoggled right now with my classes and work load, I might be tempted to try this. All I could think when I read her post… Instant Insanity. What a mental work out! Then I thought about it on the long drive to get the kiddie-kins and I was even more leaning towards … "What on Earth, has she gone mad? Do I need to provide some sort of mental intervention for my dear friend?" and so, I get home… pull her blog up and follow the link.

This is where it gets really cool. The site is awesome. You can make donations to help youth writers and stuff like that. I was all for her doing this. I read every available page (well, every page I could read and cook dinner and bathe the kids and get them settled in… yadda yadda… yadda)

I kinda like the idea.

No, I like the idea and I am rooting for her 100%. If I didn't have this crazy work load I might even be tempted to do it to. Maybe next year. Maybe in December I will do it just to see if I can do it. Why on earth did they pick November? OK so, maybe I will wait until January to try it. November and December are kind of busy.

So, if you get a chance check out NYPINTA and NaNoWriMo.

In other news, I brought Philly her Pecan pie and she promised to make me a cheesecake! Yum. We shall be fat chic's of the campus! Lol. Really she is not fat, I just said that. As you can see by the pic of me that I squeezed into the Halloween pic's, I am a chubbymomma. Oh well. I like myself anyway.

Scarlet was dropped off today to get her ears done. Yea the screamer is gone for a few days. Lol. And I don't intend on picking her up until Thursday or Friday. J Chloe is booked to go to California on Friday and meet her new family. That will be a relief. Chloe is a really nice dog, very pretty, and everyone is trying so hard not to get attached to her! If Betty doesn't like her I will take her back. And I am not saying that to be selfish. She is a likable dog. But Chloe is also a puppy and pretty good at puppy stuff (like chewing, stealing, testing the waters of play and play and poop and hide and …. Urgh!) But all , the puppies do that! Chloe will sit. I have got her to come to her name, sit, and walk a little on a leash. She is not fond of the leash Betty and her hubby and children will have to figure that one out! She does not potty in her box but she sounds like a police car when she wants to get out to go! She likes to go potty about 3 am. Oh well. We are excited to see her go to California but we are also going to be sad to see her go. Esp Lulu, lulu just scoops her up and totes her like a doll. It is rather cute. Chloe is just along for the ride and Lulu is all business. Doll carriage, under the arm or however. J Chloe has her own baby (that will go with her) and her own blanket (that was lulu's but it will go with her and stay with her) and her own sweater (that she will be wearing). Chloe also got her health certificate today and her last puppy shot. Other puppy news, Ani got her Rabies shot today and is curled up to Lu (pouting) she keeps looking up at me with her ears back like I hit her or something. I feel so bad! I won't hold another dog while it gets a shot! General T is mad at me. He knows that Ani is in the bed and keeps whining.

I get a kick out of General T. He hates to get caught by Lulu and toted. But he loves to love her! After the pup's go out in the morning, I will take T and put him in bed with Lu and let him wake her up. This morning he pile dived her. Over and over like she was a bag of food and he was going to get into it with his nose. She was getting mad. He would ram her and she would swat him and tell him no! So, I put Bear in bed with her and he bounced on her like she was a trampoline. Needless to say, she was not a happy camper this morning.

Molly wants me to cook breakfast tomorrow. Bacon and eggs. Scrambled. I don't know about this. On a Tuesday morning? Grrrr. I might make a deal with her, how about tomorrow morning… LOL? Tues and Thurs we have to leave so early so I might try to bargain out of a Tuesday morning full course meal, cereal, cold with milk. J

SEE that was 906 words. Maybe 50, 000 random words won't be that hard NYPINTA! Good luck.

'Tis the season

Ok I have held off posting about The big Christmas as long as possible for me! Let me start with a few days to remember:

Molly's b-day is December 17th
My sissy and I celebrate our aging on December 23rd (ain't that a crock of poop?)
Christmas Eve - December 24
The big day - December 25
Uncle Craigs B-day - December 27th

OK, having said that you get the idea that I get Jipped a lot on my b-day, always have and ... well I guess I always will. With the exception of NYPINTA she always used to make a point to get me something for each and NOT WRAP MY B-DAY PRESENT IN CHRISTMAS PAPER.

I broke down and bought the Dr. Elmo Christmas CD so that I could entertain LULU wiht "Grandma got run over by a reindeer" and I figured the entire CD would be slap stick funny songs. How wrong was I? Waaahy wrong. There is a song called, "Your the reason they invented mistletoe" omg it is so sweet, and then there is another song, "Christmas all year long" and in this one he is talking about the love of his life and how he is gonna hide her from santa... oooohhh too sweet. Go buy the CD, if your sentimental like me then you will be all mushy over it.

And that is really unlike me to go patching out about the non-traditional Christmas songs. I am a ... Bing Crosby... white christmas... sorta Christmas song gal. I like the old boys and I like the orginal songs unscathed. But in the 80's I did vary a little by tuning into Jon Jett and the Blackheart's rendition of "Little Drummer Boy" (Little Drummer Boy untouched is my favorite christmas song, a little Jenny Trivia if you ever need it). Other then that one questionable deviation from Classic Christmas Music, lol, I am an old time gal.

My goal today was to clean out my closet. However, I went to make the kids panacakes and realized we had a bulweival invasion. My aunt and I spent the majority of the day cleaning out the kitchen cubbords and throwing stuff away. I was suprised to find expired stuff in there. *SIGH* fat girl had to part with food. Man that sucked. LOL. 4 garbage bags of stuff came out of the Cubbards and fridge (why not Sue said she would clean out the fridge also).

I was traumatized by the event as my fat ass was the one going up and down the step ladder. While I was up the ladder I cleaned the walls and the outside of the cubbard doors (and the inside of them and the hinges and the bottoms of the cubbards). SIGH. But the upside was looking for places to decorate and talking about what decorations we will put out (I threw away the big entertainment center so we lost a lot of shelf space for the villages) and how we are going to do this.

I say we but really I do most of the decorating because I am the only one physically able to get up and down the ladder but the villages are Sue's. I buy her a new piece every year or Harry does. And there is the infamous Christmas Tree story (I will tell you later). I did however make one request and that is I get the Christmas stuff in their will if something ever happens to them. OK. tacky, maybe but I have bought an awful lot of that stuff and I will use it. But then and again Sue has four daughters and Harry has two daughters and I guess that it is not my place to ask for hand outs. SIGH. But both of them are in relatively good health and I don't really look forward to having to dibby up anything any time soon.

We are watching the second Christmas movie of the year Jack Frost (we watched the polar express a few nights ago).

I am off to get a piece of Pecean pie and visit some blogs on my blog roll.
