Mrs L's Joke of the day

I know that we have a lot of things to talk about. However, I got this email from Mrs. L and I am sharing it. The child does not look like any of her grandchildren, so I am assuming this is a joke!

Tough Love vs. Spanking

Good Argument Most people think it improper to spank children, so I have tried other methods to control my kids when they have one of those “moments”. One that I found effective is for me to just take the child for a car ride and talk. Some say it's the vibration from the car, others say it's the time away from any distractions such as TV, Video Games, Computer, IPod, etc. Either way, my kids usually calm down and stop misbehaving after our car ride together. Eye to eye contact helps a lot too. I've included a photo below of one of my sessions with my son, in case you would like to use the technique. Sincerely,Your Friend , Mrs L.

Public Phobia

Song of the day: "War Pigs" Ozzy Osborne

Quote of the day: "Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. " Thomas H. Huxley; English Biologist (1825-1895)

The quote of the day is dedicated to FermiCat and her 5 Weeks to.... WOOOHOOO... Her final board exam! Please stop over there and give her an encouraging shout out! You go Girl (or really woman but for immature blogging purpose we will call you a Gurl! Eth?)

Two more days of school (after today) and two more days of exams. I think I just fainted. And what a long trip this semester has been. Parts of it just flew by and then other parts ... I'd rather have taken a long walk off a short pier. And that covers the parameter of personal and academic life! It is... all inclusive!

The only thing I regret about this semester ending is that Philly and I will be heading in different directions. She will be heading to Georgia Southern and I will be heading to Western Kentucky. But I made her promise me that she will come up to Nashville area at least once to visit me for an event. And you know what she said... "You will have to plan that event around my schedule." Wow, I love you too. Hee Hee.

I was really Kean on this event until I found out on Saturday that it has gone (well in my mindset I thought small) from a private thing to a public thing. Wow. I didn't really want big or public or in a big building or with a lot of people or the expense.

Did I ever mention that I am almost paralyzed by shyness? I am. People that know me are like, really? But the truth of the matter is ... I think comedy is my self defense. I really do. I have to talk myself into going grocery shopping (or vacations or general shopping) and then I have to talk myself into getting out of the car and then I have to convince myself I really want to go into the building and then if someone smiles at me or speaks to me... I smile back at them but I am thinking... oh no... don't talk... don't stop... don't expect me to shake your hand... why are you touching my shoulder... or the entire compass of things like that.

Really it is amazing that I have any friends. LOL. But people are drawn to me. Kind of like a cat. Ever notice your cat goes and gets on the lap of the guest that hates cats? I feel like that guest when I make friends. I am curious but rather not be there. Whatever. What is even more amazing is the fact that I have two kids. LOL. Not only did a conversation go beyond hello, but got physical.

Did I mention I have a germ phobia? OK we won't go there.

What I need to do is re-read my quote and go and do some Statistic certifies!

Hee Hee.

I went to Walgreens and bought surgical mask's and gloves. We have been declaired a HOT zone because of Migrant wokers exceeding 1000 entering our area from April 20 to April 27. FUN FUN FUN.

Quote of the day: "If mankind minus one were of one opinion, then mankind is no more justified in silencing the one than the one - if he had the power - would be justified in silencing mankind." John Stuart Mill; English economist & philosopher (1806 - 1873)

Song of the day: "Addicted to Love" Robert Palmer

I just finished my power point on the Swine Flu and it is all based on facts. If anyone wants a copy please email me at and I will email a copy to you. I don't know how to post a power point to blogger. Sorry.

I think I for in the high 80's to low 90's on todays statistics test. Woohoo! Now watch I failed the damn thing. Wouldn't that suck this late in the semester? I am sitting on the bench of a B-C in that class.... I don't want to bomb it now!

I plan to start packing stuff up in the house tomorrow. Wow. What a chore. Doc gave me a box. I got 7 sitting here in front of me. All empty. All jsut waiting. Funny how they do that.

I took Dave's advise from Sunday and made BLT's for dinner. Ours were Bacon and Tomato with Hellmans mayo on white whole grain bread. The maters did not agree with me! I keep burping and then have that acid crawl feeing up the back of my throat! Yuckers!!!!!!

I am so ready for a week from Tuesday. WoooHoo.

Oh and neither Sue Anne or I won the case. The letter from the Judge said that he was unwilling to make a ruling in this case. Politicians.

Swine Flu

DON'T PANIC it is way to early to tell if we are going to have an epidemic. I remember watching a video on Swine Flu in Microbiology, and I am suprised at the CDC for LYING and saying they don't know how it is spread, because in Micro the film was by the CDC and it said that it was spread by mosquito bites.

So, help yourself out, ,, Get a bug light and some OFF with DEET (deep woods off or just look you can still get DEET, not as strong but it works). Be sure to clean any and all bug bites with idione or biniactin (sp) and quit worrying.

We have the ability to control these things and work with getting through them. CDC has know about swine flu for a long time and has feared this for a long time. The pig is able to carry all sorts of flu's. Bird, people, pig and when the bug goes through mitosis it... for lack of a better word... mutates in the pig and accomidates all the different flu's it may be carrying. This is what makes it dangerous. It is something we have been exposed to (maybe not enought to get sick) and it is somehting that combines and then ... POOF... becomes a super bug.

BUT... we have known of a "Swines" organic makeup and the ability to mutate things for a long time ... SO... now what? We didn't take preventative measures when we could have and now... we may face iniment death. But the bible does speak of the swine as being evil (I am not sure where but 7th day advantaist won't eat pork because it is the root of all evil). Hmmm. Somthing to ponder.

Once a human contracts the virus or flu then it can be passed just like any other flu bug. Can you say, hand sanitizer? Can you say, Lysol? OK, now go and arm yourself!

I worry yes, that is my job, I am a mom! LOL. And we have a HOG ranch >6 miles from here! EEEEK. I will be buying a new bug light tomorrow!!!!! You bet!

Song of the day: "Machine Head" Bush

Quote of the day: "Every outbreak is unique..." Dr Richard Besser of the CDC

So, if every out break is unique and this one appears to be hitting people in a mild way, just take percautions. Go to school, go to work, go to your life... it is calling you!

Thursday was Five more weeks

Song of the day: "Money" Pink Floyd

Quote of the day: "Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else. " James M Barrie; Scottish dramatist & novelist (1860 - 1937)

I am at Doc's house. I brought some stuff up here. We have spent most of my time up here sleeping. But this afternoon is the first sence we got back from Pigeon Forge that I don't feel exhausted! Or that could be the 16 oz glass of OJ I drank. Me no know.

I discovered today that Doc has some nosey neighbors. When I put Bear out this morning, the lady who ownes the property adjacant to Doc's was mowing (on a big assed tractor with a squeeler attached! Thank Goodness we are talking about more than an acre to mow!!!) Anyway, she was up by the road mowing and she charged down to the property line on that thing and went SLOWLY down the property line looking at me. I stood up from arranging Bears water dish and checking the security of his lead, I smiled and waved and she LOOKED away and sped up!

So, when I went out to get Bear a few hours later a man (I think) was driving up the street in an older body style Jeep Cherokee, and he about put hisself through his windshield! He slammed on his breaks (IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET WITH TRAFFIC COMMING) and waved. I started to raise my hand and he laid on the horn and waved (like a crazy man) and I waved back) and he started back down the road, waving until he got to the top of the hill.

Um. OK. Um. Hi!

I am off to do some productive things like shower and get dressed. Hee Hee.

Lesson's learned

Quote of the day: "If absolute power corrupts absolutely, does absolute powerlessness make you pure?" Harry Shearer

Song of the day: "Come on Eileen" Dexy's Midnight Runners

Court - I will add to this later for the circus that was court.

First, no decision was reached, Judge Wiggens said that he would mail the decision and we would receive it in three business days.

Second, when we were leaving, Sue Anne Clark said that "If the Judge rules in Jennifers favor, I still won't pay her, I will just attach it on to my bankruptcy."

Third, she is a liar, a cheat, deviated from topic, and falsified a document (AND ADMITTED TO IT), and had a lot of nasty things to say about me. I know I am hard to deal with, and eccentric about my kids, and whatever... but I didn't know I was an asshole! LOL.

Fourth, even when coaxed I would not say anything ugly about her or her facility but I did point out that the document was altered. I told the truth and stayed on topic.

Fifth, she had her grandson threaten my child at school and I did bring that up in court.

Lastly, I feel sorry for her. I think that she is a desperate woman in a horrible situation. I wish the judge had asked her to go get a psych evaluation!

All in all I was not pleased with going to court. I will at some point be putting out what went down about the daycare and why I removed Lulu from her care and put her in a private daycare. I will also update when I get the ruling from the court.

Parenting 101

Quote of the day: "The only normal people are the ones you don't know very well." Joe Ancis

Song of the day: "Amanda" Boston

I have court tomorrow about the nonsense at the daycare. Today I have to go to the school and fuss about the stuff going on with Molly.

More later on that crap.

This is later. Here is what went down at the elementary school.
1) I informed the VP that Mrs McKinney needed to have a psychological evaluation because she started to victemize my child worse and violated the doctors orders after she found out about her disability and I asked for her job to be reviewed by the school board and that she be put on Admin leave until said item could be followed up on
2) I had a child (who's parent was present, premeditated) called to the office to tell Mr Robbie what had happened in the class
3) I made it clear that Amanda was given homework the week of CRCT's by Mrs McKinney
4) I brought up that a little boy was being an elementary school lawyer and quoting a case between his grandmother and me to my daughter and telling her that her mother was an uneducated louse. (I had informed Amanda that I was infact educated, she need not worry, things like this come from the minds of the despirate.) And I told Robbie that school was not the time nor the place for this to occur and asked him to confront the other child about Sue Anne Clark.
5) I pushed the limit on the 504
6) I bit my lip and made myself cry
7 ) I informed him that Ms McKinneys actions were now causing emotional trauma (the other girl that had been calld up) to other children and not jsut my own
8) Asked about the Principals husband's health (only to have it backfire and Robbie told me he died, then I felt bad about asking affter him)
9) Thanked the other parent for being there and lending me her spine and helping me to get through this
10) decided I hate school at that level

Went back to the college only to have to pick Amanda up at 2:30pm for a fever and back ache ... took her to the doctor and she has a UTI and possible Kidney stones. UGH.

Cussed silently to myself about my day.

Cussed silently to myself about what the doctor had to say about the diagnosis from the psychologist about Manny.

Bought Cranberry Juice and Antibotic's for Manny.

Cussed silently to myself all the way home about my crappy day.

Emailed my lab teacher that I missed the disection of a Kidney and the quiz on the ohhh... URINARY TRACT... because of the Irony of Manny's diagnosis. LOL. Ok, I had to laugh!

OK the daycare saga will be continued.

Ani Defranco~ Still Folking it up

When I stumbled across this I thought, Oh that is what a tattoo is going to look like in a few years... LOL... then I realized she is like 5 years older then me. SIGH. She still has her music going and I think she has come a long way from her first album.

Movie Rewiew

From past experiences, everyone knows... I love to hate a few things. Like Hannah Montana. I love to hate her. And it is not so much her, it is her father that I don't like and feelings of a parent forcing a kid to do something, et al.

I had to take Molly and her friend Kate to the movies. Lulu came along. The movie had three strikes against it right off the bat. When I paid for the tickets the girl at the window pointed out my dismay and said, "You will like this movie." and that meant... ha ha sucker.

Then we paid almost 40 bucks for popcorn and soda. Strike two.

Then the movie started. Strike three.

Or in my mind... that was how it was going down. Problem was... I really liked it. I didn't want to like the movie but I found myself watching it with the ultimate of intrest. I even had empathy for Billy Ray and it kills me to admit that.

My favorite scene was a toss up. There is an act where there is a cat fight between Hannah Montanna and Tyra Banks. I about fell out of my chair. It was so funny. Then the Hoedown Showdown... that was awsome chorography. Of course there are tear jerkers, and thanks to Lulu's decision to have to use the potty, I got to miss the one that brings all parents to tears! Thanks Lulu. I mean it, really, THANKS because I am not very keen on kids movies that make you cry and that would have been the ultimate of NONO for this movie!!!!

Two thumbs up.

Here is a picture of Ani Defranco

Joke of the day

Friday, April 17, 2009

YEA and the point is?

Let me tell you all what exactly just happened! I had to run back to town to get a harness for Bear. We'd forgotten it at the store earlier today. I'd promised Kate that she could spend the night with Molly, so I picked her up while I was out.

Coming home, the neighbor (we will call him Mr P) stopped in the road and waved me down. I stopped and asked if everything was ok, he said yea. He just wanted to chat. LOL. OH MY GOSH.

Let me back up a second. I have been down here for ten years. For the most part everyone around here has shunned me. You know, they all better then this Yankee Byatch. Whatever. Mr P included. I mean, we've had him over for dinner a few times and he does visit on occasion but for the most part... that is it. And lets add to it that Mr P lives in a shack with an upgrade of a travel pop up attached to it. OK? But he is a nice person (slightly paranoid but nice)

So, he said, "I noticed your truck was gone for a few days, is everything aight?"
Me, "Yea, we went to Pigeon Forge for vacation." and we made small talk about that. I mentioned Doc by name and he asked who he was. I told him. And he gives me this aghast look.

Me, "Mr P, what on EARTH are you looking at me like that for?"
Mr P, "Well, I don't know how to put it but I will say it like this," He pauses and looks at the ground like he's been shammed or something, like a little boy on the brink of gettin an asswhoppin. "Well, I was just going to ask you to dinner or something"
ME, "Well, Mr P, I have been down here for ten years and you've never talked to me like that, I never knew but I really can't"
HIM, "Well that might be for the best, cuz you know, if we did go out and you were willing to put out and all, well then I might find us having 5 or 6 sets of twins"

I mean... WHERE THE FUCKDID THAT COME FROM? Back to the story.,,

Him, "Well, knowing about you and Doc, I reckon we won't be doing nothing like that, but if it don't work out, you know you got someone waiting on you."
Me (in a very sweet and nice voice) "Well, Thank YOu Mr P, that is very kind of you, I'll keep that in mind. I have to go, the girls are complaining to use the bathroom."
Him, "OK then, good night"

And I drove off. There was more to the conversation but I just gave you the readers digest version. My head was spinning before I pulled off. Can you believe that? I walked in the door and told Sue and Harry about it. We were laughing a good hard laugh over it. It was really funny.

And more for the record, I am nor was I ever intrested in him.


Lets give Philly a shout out

I just wanted to take a minute to give Philly a major big shout out! We are graduating this semester.

Philly has made the Deans list every semester. She has like a 3.9 GPA and is in contention for the Val-Victorian (is that what it is called?) for our class.

I am Honored to be her B- buddie. LOL. Thanks for putting up with me Philly, your a great lady, and my favorite friend.

Food for Thought

I had a visitor in my car yesterday afternoon when I ran out to have a cig and talk to Doc. I will call her Nicki. I hung up from my conversation with Doc because I really am not into sharing that kind of a private conversation with a near stranger. Anyway, she and I got talking about food. It was close to lunch time.

If a woman is eating and someone comes up to her and says it looks good, the first woman will most likely share it or offer some to the other person.

On the other hand if a man is eating something that looks good, he gets all defensive. OK, Nicki was talking about how she made her hunny Spanish porkchops. I never heard of them but the way she described them they sounded down right good! She said that her hunny brought the left overs to work with him and heated them up at lunch time in the break room. He told her that he was enjoying them and a co-worker commented that they looked really good and smelt fantastic. He then told her he wrapped one arm around his dish, looked down at his plate and ate it all as fast as he could. She was like... this is how I envisioned this going down and made a hand gesture. But it struck me odd. I started to laugh uncontrollably. I mean. I couldn't help it. She said, "Jenn, it wasn't that funny." and between gasping for air and waving my hand at her, I managed to get out, "No, now I know what went down in Tennessee with Doc and the chicken Parm I made him."

Here is what went through my head. OK, I don't know the name of his co-worker but I will call him skeeter. Please mind that this is not WHAT Doc said happened it is what went through my infantile mind.

Doc takes a lunch to work that is the left overs of the chicken parm. At the designated chow time he heats them up in the break room. Skeeter and he are eating together. Skeeter mentions that it smells good what is it. Doc tells him I made him something. So, the guy ask's for a bite. Doc cuts off a small piece of chicken and dips it in the sauce and gives it to Skeeter. Now... let me pause for a second. I make damn good Chicken parm. Ok, back to the story. Skeeter tells doc it taste good and can he have another bite... so doc gives him a few drops of sauce. Skeeter gets defensive... they have a man bitch (dirty looks) and makes for an uncomefortable night at work.

But that is how a man's mind works. I got somethng good, I will tease you with it, you will be jealous and envious, and I am still going to finish eating my stuff. LOL.

Like I said, the story of Doc is complete fiction. Nicki and I discussed it and well, when we were talking about it we were laughing in hysterics.

Mid April B*tch session Part 1

A few things to Complain about:
First: The Contest for the DC family radio show is rigged. I listed to past pod cast and came up with my answers based on the process of deduction. THE answer to the most beloved movie character, James Bond, came up several times and was correct but when given today it was wrong. I guess they should not record their radio show.
ALL or nothing answers so far:
1)Talk on the phone
2)possibilities - online bill paying, fast food
4)Move back Home
5)James Bond is what it should be but now I guess I will say again Scarlet O'Hara or Hanna Montana, but Hanna would be most popular, eth?

Ok Done with my complaint.

Six more weeks

Quote of the day: "Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn't have to do it himself. " A.H. Weiler (1909-2002)

Song of the day: "You give love a bad name" Jon Bon Jovi (or do we take out the Bon now?)

You know it is really confusing when well known artist change their name or what they go by or even when they switch bands around. I have had that song stuck in my head all day and the worse part of it is that I liked the band as a teen but I hated that song. SO, why now do I like it? I know , I know, I liked it in secret... right?

Six more weeks. Any guesseers this week?

OK for the all or nothing over at DC and the family radio show.
2nd question - Movie tickets
5th question - Scarlet O'Hara

I was going to release this post tomorrow but I have a ten page paper to finish in the morning or before 1230pm, lol, so here it is.

I have a Subconjunctival hemorrhage in my left eye. Why? LOL. Don't I have enough problems as it is? Doctor said not to worry I could have got it from coughing or sneezing. I asked if it might be related to my headaches of late and he said most likely not. I think it might be from eye strain related to all these papers I am having to write and consequently all the reading that goes with them. See what proscritanation gets you? Or me anyway!

I still have to do my taxes. Unlike me, lol, I normally have it done the first week of February but I have been a little distracted. Oh well. I will run home and get SSI cards and see about getting it done.

I am wearing my red sweater today that everyone hates. I wore it last up in the mountains and I guess I didn't wash it because it smells like a cross between Doc and the perfume he gave me. Hee Hee. Maybe I will keep it on even if it gets up to 100 today! Not.

I am still really tired. WOW. I think it is my nerves. I don't know. I still have my headache (it comes and goes now instead of throbbing all the time) and I am crabby and short. Whatever. I guess I will get over it after I finish my last paper. 10 page government paper. UGH. And I got to pee and I am stuck in class with a teacher that don't like his students making exodus to the restrooms. OOOOOH and 35 minutes to go. LOL. ACK.

Check out the hecklers at the NYT auto show. I had to laugh. Like the auto industry expected to be anything less than jeered? I mean really, we allowed congress to GIVE them out tax money for the bailout and then they take and waste the money on bonuses. Yea, well, I know I won't be purchasing a new car anytime soon. I will drive the one I have no other choice. Why? Because I have no desire to give the auto giants any of my money after their irresponsible acts. That's why.

4) What do the majorit of collee students do right after graduation from college?
Answer - move back home
5)ho is the most beloved movie character?

I say - VITO CORLEONE, from the GODFATHER part 1~~~~~~

I don't know what else to say, I have been busy with school and Doc has been bogged down with work and according to him, "Just don't feel like blogging". Sigh. I will work on getting him to blog something. I feel bad about it, honest I do!!!! I make him take a vacation and then he disappears from the blogasphere!!!! DOC... yooohoooo..... update sometime soon? Eth?

I am hungry. I am working on a paper and studying for an exam... fun... I do a little of one and then switch over to the other... SIGH... right this second is that second in time where I am taking a sanity break and thinking about my gut!

7 weeks to go

Song of the day: "Another couple's love Song" Corey Dargel

Quote of the day: "All human beings should try to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why. " James Thurber (1894-1961)

First, I never heard that song or artist. I picked it up over at NPR .

Second, I am tired. I woke up with a killer headache, the kind that just sits behind your eyes and boarders on migrane territortiy. I am living with it but it has become a constant ache behind my eyes that is making me want to close my eyes to the light. I hate these. It has potential to be a full blown migrane before much longer. It means one of three things and none that I want to talk about.

Moving on... 3rd... Bear is still at the vet and I am not pleased. Like I said in a prior post he was sick when I picked him up and I brought him back over there. I checked on him yesterday and he was OK but today when I went to get him he was sick again. They want to keep him over night again and see what is what. He is comming home tomorrow! Damnit! But I don't really want to bring home a sick dog and get the others sick either. What to do? I am not pleased with this. And I am not ready to loose a puppy and if he dies that will be a really shitty end to this week.

I am tired. I am going to go and lie down on the couch for a few minutes and see if I don't feel better myself. With the headache it has been hard to keep my eyes open all day!

Ahhhh a new count down

Doc said to go ahead and give everyone a heads up that there is another countdown to occur that will take place 7 weeks from tomorrow! So,,, pbblbbbth... you are warned. This will be a week to week countdown (as I have less exhausting things to do then a day to day thing)

Please feel free to leave comment guesses. Neither Doc nor I will tell you if your right or wrong. But a heads up... no... we are not Preg and we are not getting hitched (yet). Hee Hee. ANY TAKERS?

Lets see, I picked the dogs up on Monday and brought them home. Bear was listless and wouldn't eat. He was like that all night and yesterday. Harry called me about 2 pm yesterday and told me that Bear was still acting off so I called the vet and he wanted to see him. I ran home and got him and he vomited all over my car and shit all over Lulu's car seat on the way in. little fucker

CRCT exams this week and next week for Molly and I had two exams today. I am wore out. I still need to take a bath but right now even the thought of it is effort and I am just sitting here and ignoring the fact that I stink!

Lets talk for a moment about the CRCT. These exams the kids have to pass in order to be promoted to the next grade level in school. As we know Molly was diagnosed ADD and Asbergers (SP I don't have the paper in front of me to cheat on the spelling). I brought the paper work into the school on Monday (as we got it late in the day on the last day of school before break and that was the first day I could get it to them) and the school administrator is telling me that Molly won't be given the extra time (as defined on the papers from the doctor for her disability) and that it will take effect next school year. So, I questioned if this was not in violation of the Americans' with disabilities Act. Appears that it is in violation and boy did some serious work get done when I asked the correct questions! But it wasn't without a fight! It shouldn't be like that! Then they left five seperate messages on my cell phone about if I didn't do this that and the other thing (while standing on my tiptoes and farting dixie) then the agreement was null and void. So, I called up the Doctor (for Molly, not Doc) and asked him if they could do this. He got kinda short with me and told me a few things (armed me with knowledge) and I called the school back on Tuesday morning and spoke with the principal. So, now that I basically had to threaten to get certain officials and the Civil liberties union involved... Molly gets her extra 45 minutes per test.

She took her first test today, they are given 50 minutes for the test and ten minutes to check it over. Plus Molly gets the additional 45 minutes per her disability. SO... what does Molly do? Finishes the exam in 30 minutes. The teacher that conducted the exam looked it over and said that she couldn't find a mistake on it. Go figure. All that agrivation for nothing.

It is Autism Awarness month, so be aware!

Vacation stuff

Hey Ya'll, this post is going to be kind of long and loaded with pictures. If you want to skip the load time here then go to my photobucket two over there on the side bar to view the pictures.
The Cabin

Hee Hee, just joking that was something at DollyWood! The cabin is Hooks Haven (02) at and I forgot to take a picture of the outside of it but they have one at that link under three bedroom cabins.

J Of course an April Fool’s day joke is not all that funny if there is no Wi-Fi signal to be able to send the … oh … I don’t know, how about the “April Fools” part of it!!!! Doc made it here about eight tonight, I was really anxious, so I went down to the end of the road to meet him and put the code in the gate for him. We stood there and kissed for like ten minutes! Awwww!!!!!

And thus, here is my fav room in the cabin:

April 2

What can I say; today was just cool beyond all that is coolness. We went to Dollywood. Lulu was good, Molly was good, Eric was bad (really, really, super bad), I was relatively good, and I rented Sue an electric wheel chair so she was able to get around really good. All and all we had a good time.

Molly and I went on a lot of rides. We went on one that was a water squirt gun ride. Ok, here is how it goes. You go down a controlled rapid and people on the sidewalk can squirt you with water guns. You in the boat have the illusion that you can shoot them back but it is just an illusion as the water in your gun falls short about a foot. OK. WRONG. There are just so many things wrong with NOT being able to retaliate! ESPECIALLY when one of the “kids” on the sidewalk is the 48 year old love of your life; and I mean he was shooting ME, like running from one water gun to the next and BLASTING me! He was all like… pushing little kids out of the way and tossing old ladies aside to get to the guns… to water bomb me! Kids! Here he is all trying to look innocent or somethng:

Here is my blackmail picture. LOL. My hair was done prior to getting soaked but instead he gets his picture taken with a soggy looking Jenn

It took us the better side of the entire day but we made it through the entire park. There were a few rides we did not get to that we would have like to go on but for the most part… it was great! Lucy loved the critter park for kids. They had a roller coaster that was rubber duckies.
She liked the ducks but she did not like the bumble bee! The bee spun in circles and went up and down where the ducks just went round and round.
She also like the carousal. On the carousal she rode the piggy and then she rode the rooster. Hey, how about that! We ended the day with a ride on the Dollywood express.

J Can you give me a big fat LAZY? As that is what we have been today. We choose today as our day off to relax and enjoy the cabin. We played in the Jacuzzi with the kids. We had a BBQ. The kids colored. Eric and I played.

What I didn’t get to do was sleep in! Can you believe that? I woke up at o dark thirty and just knew I heard the coffee pot brewing. I’d set it up the night before so it made perfect sense! Sue had gotten up and had turned on the coffee pot! I threw on a pair of sweats and my ugly red sweater and I came out to the kitchen. Needless to say, no one was up and it was a very dark 5:15 am. I turned on the coffee pot anyway and went potty. I came out of the bathroom and Sue scared the day light s out of me. She was in the kitchen getting coffee cups down and creamer out! LOL. She said she smelt it upstairs and came down for a cup! Glad I didn’t take my clothes back off! THAT would have been funny.

Right now we got the fire going in the fire place. It is going to be around 38 tonight. Eric and I are fixing to run out and jump in the Jacuzzi… alone and naked. Hee Hee.

Apr1l 4
Almost got married today. *SIGH* Eric Chickened out. Or did I? Today we wet to the Aquarium.
Is this thing (a sword fish) not the creepiest damn thing you've ever seen?
I did not care much for the aquarium. They were in major violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act and I did end up demanding our money back because Sue could not get into any of the exhibits.

Next was the Dixie Stampead. This was the most fun. No camera's were allowed inside but you can google that for visual details. Molly got to be a part of the act! There is so much to be said about that show, I will make a seperate post when time permits.

Lastly we went minature golfing. That was pretty neat. Eric won. LOL. I came in dead last. Sigh.

We finished the day with a little shopping and I lost both Eric and Molly to the belly of a shark.

Some on the drive home

And finally the pitstop in Cherokee NC

I will be posting several post about the vacation in a day or two. This is a busy week for me as Doc did not allow me to do any homework. He was not alone in the rest and relaxiation plot as the kids and Sue also joined in on the Jenny no do nuttin but wait on us band wagon! Naw, it was not that bad! There was no wi-fi in the cabin and the server for the internet and cell phones did not receive enough signal to work in the area we stayed. However, we managed to live through it!

Brothers Cove was awsome. I will put a link up on my sidebar when I get a minute. For short term it is and please LOOK all around their web page. If you go to Pigion Forge, I would very highly recomend staying here. It is a few miles (about ten) from the Pigion Forge midway. Very quiet, very secluded and the people that work there and own it are fantastic to deal with! The rates look high but you get what your paying for and it worked out better for us (a party of 5) then staying at a hotel for the week. Ok, I will brag about BC later!

I even played an April Fools day prank on one of them! Hee Hee. I will tell you about it later!

Doc was awsome. The kids behaved. Sue behaved. I didn't.
