A Dam Day

That is just what it was. A beautiful day spent at the dam with the kids, the cooler, my camera and of course Honey!

Sunday Funnies

A man and his wife are dining at a table in a plush restaurant, and
the husband keeps staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sits alone at a nearby table.

The wife asks, "Do you know her?"

"Yes," sighs the husband, "She's my ex-girlfriend. I understand she
took to drinking right after we split up seven years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since."

"My God!" says the wife, "Who would think a person could go on
celebrating that long?"

I don't mind being second, it's dead that bothers me!

Well, school is well underway, and as I expected there are lots of things to talk about. Everyday there is a something exciting that took place or trouble that is reported. Today, Mina came home with this....

Mina: "Mommy, you remember my new friend Hunter I told you about?"

Me: "Yeah, I saw him today....He's cute!"

Mina: "I know and he follows me everywhere and always wants to play with me."

Me: "Well, is that ok with you......Do you mind him wanting to be with you."

Mina: "Oh no Mommy, I like him and you know what he said to me on the playground today?"

Me: "What's that?"

Mina: "He said he was going to marry me."

Me: Giggling I say, "My goodness, what did you tell him?"

Mina: "I said, ok!"

Me: "Really?!"

Mina: Yeah, but he said if I didn't want to, he would just marry YOU, Mommy!"

Me: "Wow, that is sweet but what do you think Daddy would say about that?"

Mina: "I don't know but I told Hunter, that by the time he was grown up to get married you would be dead!"

Mina, the playground bride.

There you have it. To a kindergartener, anyone the age of 40 or above has one foot on a banana peel. :)

What was I doing again?

So it starts. Another school year is under way as of this morning. Only this year it's a little bit different. Mina started Kindergarten and Michael being a big second grader decides he's going to have an alarm clock and get up on his own. I'm thinking, "this I've got to see!"

So, an alarm clock was placed on his toy stacks just across from him bed. We make sure to set it for 6:20a, then he's off to sleep. Well, this morning I'm up a 5:15a. I shower, dress, get coffee on, spend a few minutes in devotions and finish up some last minute paperwork for the kids first day when I heard it. The shrilling beep, screaming from Michaels room. I peek in, there isn't the slightest stir and I think, "my gosh, he's like his father, he needs a rocket launched under his bed to wake up." I leave it screaming, walk to the end of the hall and wait.

I hear commotion coming from his room several minutes later, then a figure emerges and appears in the hall. Looking one direction, than the other before he spots me. He squints and says, "what was I doing again? It's dark out, why am I up?" Ok, now I'm cracking up and approaching my lost and completely confused boy. He's still unsure what to do and I decide the kid is sleeping on his feet. Finally, he looks at me with some recognition and says, "man Mommy, the clock is so loud, I didn't know what it was....Then I looked outside, it was dark, I didn't hear anyone up and didn't know why I was up."

The poor kid had a days work before he even realized he was awake!

Loving Husband

Bob was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was really pissed. She told him "Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE.

"The next morning Bob got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up, he looked out the window and sure enough there was a small box gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway.

Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought the box back in the house. She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale.

Funeral services for Bob have been scheduled for Friday.

I did NOT just hear, Mommy...

....It's 11:30p, I just checked the kids. Mina? Dead to the world. Michael? Out. Honey and I just finished a movie and are ready for the best part of our day. Hitting the sack. Ah, what a great time to enjoy the peace and quiet of the house, cuddled next to Honey talking and laughing. Well maybe there was a tad more than talking going on.

Totally lost in the moment, I missed them, and I never miss them. Footsteps. Not until I heard, "Mommy" standing just inside our room was I aware we were not alone. (I swear, I felt like I was in a movie) I grab the covers, sat straight up, and tried to get my thoughts together. By this time, Michael is sitting on my side of the bed, "Mommy, I can't sleep!" I'm thinking, "you were just sleeping!" Honey, never moves but says "Come on Buddy, just go back to bed and close your eyes, you'll sleep, I promise." Well, my baby leaves the room crying and heads back to bed. I just can't let that happen. I throw something on, tell Honey to stay right there, do not move, I'll be right back and fly down the hall.

Now, I have one guy that can't sleep and should be and one that probably will be and I don't want to be. Ugh! I tuck Michael back in, snuggled with him a bit, and tried to will him to sleep. He was so tired thank goodness it only took a few minutes but for those few minutes, I could have sworn time stood still.

I sneak out of his room, fly back down the hall and to my dismay all is still. I get back into bed feeling a bit defeated but completely understood. I leaned over, whispered goodnight, kissed him on the cheek and his eyes flew open. I smacked him, called him a punk but boy was I happy. I'm not so convinced that women are the ones that fake it. ;)

AND, I think starting tonight, I'm putting cow bells on the the kids. I just can't take it!!

Sunday Funnies

Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of Tampax and proceeded to the checkout counter. The man at the counter asked the older boy, "Son, how old are you?" Eight," the boy replied. The man continued, "Do you know what these are used for?" The boy replied, "Not exactly, but they aren't for me. They're for him. He's my brother. He's four. We saw on TV that if you use these you would able to swim and ride a bike. He can't do either one."

10 thing my house is NEVER without!

These are my staples. I absolutely, have to have these items in the house. When I begin running low, I getting nervous and my palms start sweating. If in the event I ever do run out of any of the above mentioned items.....that, becoming my quest for the following day, obtaining my missing staple.

These are listed in the order of importance....

1. Birth Control (my word, the repercussion could be devastating)

2. Coffee (my morning nectar)

3. Novel (I without fail, have to have a book in progress, have to!)

4. Batteries (of every size and shape....no comment, Salena!)

5. Wine (the romance continues with Mr. Rossi)

6. Bottled Water (still weaning from Diet Coke, ugh!)

7. Bleach (the smell of clean, a must)

8. Pasta (from the North...it's just what we eat)

9. Body Lotion (gotta have smooth skin)

10. Banana's (one of my daily snacks)

Ok, so these are the things that help me survive it all! :)

Could THIS be why?

I suppose this could very well be the reason, when leaving the house solo, without the kids or Honey, he asks, "How late are you gonna be?' and "be careful!"

I was having a ridiculous love affair with some fresh strawberries and a chocolate fountain....

And, I always end up doing some wine wrestling.....

A night out with a girlfriend, at a mutual friends surprise 40th birthday party! Lots of fun and loads of laughs, with just a bit of wine. I'm not one to really ever over indulge.....However, Honey was happy! ;)
