Homeland we are on the way

In a few short hors the fam will be packed up like sardines my mini-van..The dog will go nuts for the first hour, wanting to look out the window and bark at every car that goes by....The kids will start the complaining before we make it out of Minnesota..

I will yell back at least 4 times in one hour for them to stop fighting. One will have to pee as we pass the final rest stop for 40 miles. I will become hun gry at a time when nothing is open..Well at least nothing I want to eat anyway...I will beg for a frozen custard from Culvers, but we will never pass one in waking

The baby will be given her "sucky" to keep her quiet and she will throw it at least 20 times..And she will throw it where I can not reach it...

Yup..That is what I call a family trip....Sometime tomorrow afternoon we will pull into my dads house...The kids will complain because they will be so tired out..They will whine and beg to get in the hottub...And whine when I tell them its time to get out....

Well hope ya'll have a good weekend and a safe holiday...I will try to check in on some of your blogs while I am away..Not sure how that is gonna work out..May be too busy...But when I get home I will for sure...

See ya on the 6th...Stay out of trouble..And the slammer..!!
Toodles till later...Peace out

Don't have a bloody thing to wear

We are leaving sometime Thursday afternoon for our little trip back to the "homeland"..Since my injury I have not had a chance to pack anything.I am not even sure I have clean clothes..

The sad thing is I am still sitting in the same clothes as yesterday..Minus a bra..I could not shower today as I can not stand..I could not get in the tub as I could not get out...My hair is gross..I smell.( I am just assuming all this)...And I so need to shave my legs...

I tried hobbling on my crutches earlier..DID NOT GO WELL...

I am under a tornado watch..Weather man says may be a bad outbreak of the twisters..If one comes..I am just gonna sit here and die, I will not be going down my basement steps under any circumstances...PERIOD

Well I hope everyone has a good 4th of July..Not sure if I am gonna have time to post tomorrow...I will catch up on everyone when I get back..I will be back on Wednesday...Stay safe..Don't drink and drive..And don't keep a firework in your hand if you have already lit it:)
Take care,Toodles

Please..I need morphine

Hello there,
Well things are not improving yet. I still can not stand or walk..The irony of this whole thing is that my treadmill is gonna be fixed today..Yet I can not touch it!!

brightt side..I have vicoden!!

Ok..Here are some things I learned in the last day....I will never run in the house again....I will never do laundry again, vioden is good, I can not tolerate pain well..Another thing I leanred...Don't mix painpills with ambein(sleeping pill)...During that time I was thinking how nice it would be to have like 5 or 6 kids...My hair looks better blonde..There is a creepy guy in my closet..And the hubs became the blue wiggle...

since I have come out of my drugged fog..I realize none of the following is true..Or even close to being true..

did I mention vicoden was good?

I am in a predicament today..I can not stand...I hope my kids plane on helping me a bit....They have to help eachother get food...yikes..Can we say mess!!

well I guess this is it for now....Talk soon..Toodles

Did I mention vicoden was good?...............:)

I am gonna live

So I went to the Dr....It isn't broken,but it is sprained pretty bad...
I have an air cast..Have to stay off it for a few days...I refused TO get crutches, but now I am regretting it..Ouch....

thank you for the well wishes....You guys are the best..:)

On the bright side..I did get vicoden....LOL... this is pain folks....
my kiddies

here is one view of my injury..please insert ohhs and ahhs
my kiddies

Your not gonna believe this one

This morning as I was headed down to the basement to get the laundry going..I took a tumble down the last few steps..Twisted my ankle in ways that are not natural...It has swollen to the size of a human head...

I am going to the Dr this afternoon to get it checked out..I can not even believe this...This is why I hate doing laundry..Very risky business:)

I will post after I return...Hopefully with some good pain meds..The pain.oh the pain...


this is one reason my baby needs to be chained up

One of the older children left the bathroom door open..I walk baby is standing there with my sons toothbrush in her hand,brushing her teeth..while dunking the toothbrush in the tiolet..yum yum:(

Got to get packed..Don't for get the duct tape

We are leaving in 2 days for our very short trip back to the homeland.. I need to make sure all the clothes are washed and folded..That may take me all damn day..I really am not looking forward to to the drive...ahh shucks anyway..

The oldest is still "trying to live a life" Not sure what he has been doing for the past 8 years, but I guess that was not it...
My sweet baby seems to find the damnest things to get into..I have decided that I need to keep her chained in the closet..No really..It is for the best:)

My middle child is starting to rebel along with her big brother...He seems to be dragging her into his twisted form of anti-parenting......But it isn't too bad...YET..

Ok here is a short ditty about my troubled childhood:)
One day while I was in middle school I had decided I was gonna skip school..Just to sit home alone..And watch some much needed MTV...(that was when MTV was cool..And it actually flailed music videos..Of people who can sing..),,
As I was sitting ,just chillin on the couch, I see my mother pull into the driveway.
I am thinking HOLY CRAP...I am busted...I quickly run into her room..I decided I would "play sick"..I got under her covers and pretend I was sleeping..Well she barreled in the house..Ran into her room..For something..Didn't even notice I was into there...
I heard her gabbing on the phone.I could tell something was not right..Being it was only a half day of school that day..She would be expecting me home in an hour or so....I heard her tell whoever she was talking to on the phone that she needed to 'jump in the shower"...So that was my perfect opportunity to "come home from school"
As soon as I knew she was in the bathroom..I swung open the door..Acting all shocked she was home..."Mom..What are you doing home".....
Well turns out her grandma had died...And she never even noticed that I had been in her room....Another crisis diverted!!
There is my tale for the day...Enjoy..TOODLES

My son just infromed he that he needs a little respect around here...JOIN THE CLUB!!

some funny thing i have e-mailed to me...just wanted to share

1) Good An Erie, PA policeman had a perfect spot to watch for speeders, but wasn't getting many. Then he discovered the problem. A twelve year old boy was standing up the road with a hand painted sign, which read "RADAR TRAP AHEAD". The officer then found a young accomplice down the road with a sign reading "TIPS" and a bucket full of money. (And we used to just sell lemonade!)
2) Better
A motorist was mailed a picture of his car speeding through an automated radar post in Pittsburgh, and a $40 speeding ticket was included. Being cute, he sent the police department a picture of $40. The police responded with another mailed photo of handcuffs.
3) Absolute Best A young woman was pulled over for speeding. As the Pennsylvania State Trooper walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket book, she said "I bet you are going to sell me a ticket to the State Troopers Ball". He replied, "Pennsylvania State Troopers don't have balls". There was a moment of silence while she smiled, and he realized what he'd just said. He then closed his book, got back in his patrol car and left. She was laughing too hard to start her car

Shoo fly ..Shoo

So I have whined about my ants....Well thru some good advice from some of my fellow blogger buddies I have fixed that problem..Now I HAVE FLIES...Those darn flies are buzzing all around......I even saw a pair flying..And mating at the same time..Holy crap...I quickly killed there little love session they had goin on in my kitchen....I think they ended up on the bottom of my shoe...

My treadmill get s fixed in 2 more days...Any bets on whether or not it will happen..Well at least I know he has the part because it came to my house...I just hope he doesn't forget his wrench..Or whatever he is gonna use to tare apart my baby.....

Sometimes you find out things about friends or family that you never would of guessed...This weekend I found out a shocking bit of gossip about a friend...I am not gonna say who or what the secret was...But it just goes to show...EVERYONE has a story and maybe a few secrets...I say hey..If ya cant join em...Have them tell ya all about it.....:)......I found it very fasicntaing....You no who you are...LOVE YA....

Well I need to go door to door collecting bottles for my lipo....And I have decided to add a boob reduction to the mix....I know some of you saY.WHAT.most ladies would pay a bundle for my girls......But I never was a big chested gal till I had kids...Please bring me back my B.. I don't wanna be a D anymore....


ch-ch changes

So we had a peaceful and quiet weekend...It was boring and hot.

I have come to decide I think the oldest is starting to go thru a little bit of puberty. I mean I don't think he is gonna wake up with a beard, but he is having some issues..He has been kinda moody, gets mad quickly, gets sad quickly,and uses his famous line nearly hourly..."I am just trying to live a life".....So we will see what happens...

Still no sighting of the tortoise..Been over a week now...I just hope he has not become some form of turtle soup..yikes...

My dreams were wiggle free last night...Dodged the bullet on that one...Well..I was kinda looking forward to it actually...Oh well...

I have changed the name of my foundation..It will now be call.."The fight for smaller tums and tighter bums".......What do you think?
I need to get those donations coming in..COME ON PEOPLE...:)

I leave Thursday for the great state of Michigan....We will be there till Tuesday..Not too long..But long enough I guess....What fun we will have...Well not really..Long drive..Whinny kids..Bathroom breaks...The fun we will have..

Here is one for ya...And the story goes as follows:
I had a babysitter when I was little..I must have been like maybe 6 or 7 at the time of this incident...My babysitter (who was the older sibling of the kids I was telling about in my post from the other day)
She was a nice girl..One night she was over at or house watching my sister and I.She made me mad or something,I don't really recall the situation that well..Maybe I have just blocked it out..
Anyway she sent me to my room. And she followed me up there. I was so mad to see her face I took one of my shoes off and threw it at my window..Breaking it in a million pieces...Took my other shoe and threw it at her breaking her nose and causing the most blood my 6 year old self had ever seen..Oh my...Yup..My first assault...Well there is my tale for the day...Enjoy..TOODLES

BTW..I have posted some picutres from the weeeknd...just scroll down..or bigyy...have a good one

"bubbles,bubbles everywhere but not a drop to drink"....that is a line from Willy Wonka in case you didnt know:)

Toot,toot,chugga,chugga,big red car

Well had another dream last night, this time it was in the back of the Big Red Car..Man I need a shrink..!!

Taking the spawns to the beach today,so that should be fun...If I can find one that isn't as rocky as the last one..You know here,lakes are a dime a dozen..Just drive a few miles and Bam..There is another one..!!

My son who is 8 and the oldest of my spawns is a very sensitive young fella..He likes to fight with the middle spawn..She is 5....And when he gets in trouble,it is all of a sudden her fault...
Well lately anytime I have asked him to do chores or scolded him about being mean to his sister,he comes back with this line..And I tell you it is hard to keep a straight face..
"I am just trying to live a life".......That is his line..What the heck that is suppose to mean is beyond me..But I know its wrong and bad of me..But I just nearly bust out into a belly laugh everything I hear him say it...

Soon it will be the baby 2 birthday..We were thinking of taking her to a Wiggle concert,they are coming a few weeks before her birthday..But I am rethinking all that right now...I may get arrested..Something may make me run up on stage and start man handling the blue one..Yikes..Don't need a crimnial record..Went this long without one..!!

Ok here is story.and it goes like this..:
When I was 5 years old and in kindergarten we had these neighbors we played with.They were older..But me and the girl were pretty good friends..When we would play house I would alwyas be married to Ponch and she was married to John(all you guys who don't know..These were the guys from CHIPS)..anyhoo,
one day her and her older brother were over playing in our yard..There was a bottle on my grass and I picked it up and threw it against my house..Why I do not know..I might have been showing off..My mom was very mad I had did that..I could have been hurt!!
The brother of my friend said"you no when you break a bottle against your house your parents will be gone the next day"..(he was fat ,ugly and mean)
I told him he was full of crap,but in my own mind maybe he knew what he was talking about..I mean he WAS in 4th grade..And you no lots of stuff then..Right?

Well the next day I get on the bus for school..And then return at my usual time..I run to my house swing open the door...And yell"mom I am home"..But NOONE WAS THERE".....I looked high and low and my mom was nowhere..So I start thinking the kid was right..I threw the glass bottle now my parents are gone..To make a longer story short..I ran to my granparent who I knew were in Florida..Ran back home..And she was there...She had been just a few houses down vistitng with a friend and didn't realize what time it was...So that was my first episode of being totally freaked out..
There is my tale for the day..Enjoy..Toodles

Dream analysis please

I don't know if anyone out there can inturpert dreams or not. But this is a dream I have been having as of late....:

Ok for all you stay at home moms, or moms of young kids you know who The Wiggles are..Well here is my dilemma..I am having sex dreams about the blue wiggle(Anthony I think is his name)..I don't just mean a sex dream..I mean it is stuff you see in the porn movies...Stuff I would not normally even consider if I was awake..Now everytime I watch the Wiggles..I feel myself blushing..What the hell is going on?.......Someone please tell me what this means.....

Suggstion from my son on making my pile of money for my lipo..."Put up a lemonade stand"

Here is one for ya....When I was about 16 or so...Late at night my boyfriend I had at the time use to sneak to my bedroom window in the summertime..Sometimes I would let him in..Other times we would just make out thru my
One night..It was real late..I hear him tapping on my window..I opened it..And we were just talking..And the for some reason I did a flip on bed..
He was still standing at my window..And as I flipped over on my bed,rolling toward my window..You will never guess what happen!!...My feet went right the part of my window..Yup..Blood everywhere...Glass everywhere.....

I had to run into my moms room with blood pouring out of both my feet..And then try to explain what the hell I was doing...The story I told her was that I was sleeping..(at the wrong end of the bed)..And a fly was bothering me feet..So in an attempt to kick the fly away I ended up kicking the window...SHE BOUGHT THE WHOLE STORY..So she ended up taking me to the ER where I had stiches put in a few of my toes and was not able to walk on my feet for a few days....Good Times..So there is my tale for the day...enjoy.TOODLES:)

if you would like to contribute to the cause..Let me know..LOL
all I need is 8,000

Thought that would get a laugh outta someone..:-)Toodles

Eating dinner...For breakfast...What?

As of late my girl has been very picky with her food..At one time this baby would eat anything(remind you she WILL eat dog food). The last couple times at dinner when I give her a plate,she will put her hands over her face and cry out "NO"..Like this was not what she wanted..Then when I take her plate away because she is playing in the food or throwing pieces to the dog..She cries and reaches for it back like she wants to eat it...So I don't know what to do with her...

And it reminded me of when I was little, my parents would once in a while spend a weekend at my moms grandparents house..Which was near Detroit..They lived in a wonderful house in the country with a pond..And you could always hear frogs croaking..Huge yard..Beautiful gardens..
When we ate there...If I had put too much on my plate and could not eat the rest...Grandpa would make me eat it for breakfast the next morning..YUCK..But that is the way he was..A very strict man...Wonderful cook..Made everything homemade..And in the morning when he had made homemade blueberry pancakes or banana pancakes..I had to eat my dinner from the night before..Before I could have any...It sucked..It only happen a few times because I learned to not put much on my plate anymore..
Maybe that is what I need to do with these kids...They think they can waste food..Maybe if they have to eat the same meal for breakfast , lunch and dinner till its gone...It will change their ways..:)

Still no sitting of my tortoise...Kind bummed about that..If anyone sees him please let me know.!!..There is my tale for the day...Enjoy..Toodles

so mad I could spit nails

So the repair man came...I have waited for 3 weeks for this thing to get fixed..he comes in says he doesnt have the part...why the hell did i give them the make and model number for them to order the parts...when they did not order the part...WTF??

So fuc*ing mad right now I could spit nails...Now he says it will be next wed...Damn the fuc*ing Sears repair center anyway.Toodles

Fianally.the Day is here

Guess what gets fixed today? That's right my TREADMILL..yoo-hoo!!..I have been waiting for the moment for nealry a month now..And Finally today the Sears repair is coming to get my baby up and running again...So happy....

Yesterday afternoon my middle child asked if I bought cereal with fiber in it...I asked why she wanted to know..She told me that she saw on a commercial fiber helps prevent heart diease and makes it so your not constipated..In which she asked me what that meant...Gessh...I think I would rather hers ask me about hemorrhoids or something....

Here is another amusing tale from my childhood I recall...

My sister was a bit of a hell raiser..And she really could never be left in a room alone..Or she could do something..Like kill kittens(which had done,I will save that story for another time)..So she was in the living room watching TV or something and my mom and I were in the kitchen or basement..Cant remember which..anyhoo..We start smelling something real bad..Like something was melting...We quickly run into the living room and my sister had set the carpet ON FIRE...Yup..She had taken some of the hot coals out of the fireplace..And threw them on the carpet and watched it burn...So my mom and I had to put out the fire...Then we had to get new carpet...And BTW ....Got rid of the fireplace too....There is my tale for the day...Toodles

Mummified remains..eww!!

I posted some pictures I took a few months a ago of the baby being a dog...Just thought they were amusing....They are below...Along with a few other meaningless pots from today and last night....

A story just came to my head a while ago...Not a happy story by any means,but a story non the less..

When I was 7 I wanted a pet for my birthday..My parents eventually agreed and the pet I wanted was a hamster..Yup I wanted a rodent..So I got to go to the pet store and pick me out a shiny new rodent. I found a little one that I liked..It was white and had light brown spots and I named him/her butterscotch. He had a nice cage..All clear plastic..Some toys...All the stuff a rodent could want...One night I did not shut his door well enough..And I felt him crawling all over me..I woke up to find him running around my room. I could not catch the little shit...I finally chased him into my parents room where I woke them with a bloody yell.."Catch him catch him"...As one of my parents tried to regain conscioness I watched my litte buddy run right down the heat vent...Yup..His tail wagging the whole way down..I yelled..."He fell down the vent"...We took the cover off of the vent to try and get him out..But to no avail..No matter what we did he was stuck in there...He would not crawl back the other way..Kept on truckin...For weeks after that you could here his pitter patter of feet while he was living it up in the heat ducts...I would hear scratching and try to get to him..But never did.....

Years later My hubby and I ended up buying that house from my dad...He was buying a new house...And we were in the market to buy our first house so we did..It was kind of nice living in a familiar setting..A few years after we bought it..The house needed a new furnace..So we had a new one put in..The men who took out the old one drug the old furnace out and in the trail of dust,dirt and whatever else you can think of...Was my hamster..I shit you not...It was a perfect mummified specimen of butterscotch.....It was kinda creepy..But he had grown a lot...He was almost the size of a rat...But it was him alright..He must have lived it up for a while in the heat ducts...Because he sure had been eating well...Well there is my tail for the day.....Toodles

must be good...she keeps goin back for more......:-)

baby taking a breather...but she goes back for more

Young lies

OK..Here is an update..Still no tortoise sighting,all the kids are sick now...grr!!

Were you one of those kids in school who may have been slighly mean to others for your own personal reasons? Like the person probably was a good person..But you still felt the need to be mean...I have been thinking about this...Maybe wanting to tell everyone who I was ever mean too that I feel bad. And I was stupid..Afterall I am dieing soon..(according the deathclock..Check a few post down for it..Go ahead and take it)..

I was a sneaky teenager..I would sneak out at night..And lie about it..Even in Jr High I had a diabolical plan to fudge my report card...AND IT WORKED...I kept a report card from the marking period before(our report cards were zerox copied..Not in pen..So stupid..It made this so much easier)..Anyway I kept my report card..And made a copy of it...When report card time came around again..I put my grades in the approiote boxes..Then copied it again..wha la...To this day I do not believe my parents know this...It was around grade 7 or 8..Now that is pretty sneaky....I just hope my kids do not have moments of thought like that..I always felt desperate I guess...My mother had a bad temper..I was always scared of her...She would get mad at me,throw her hairbrush at me...Then I would get in trouble when her brush would break..It is all true...My dad never really acted like he cared..After they got divorced I wanted to live with him...I could get away with so much more livivng there...He was clueless..

AS the kids grow up..I can already see the sneaky tendency coming out in my 5 year old..GOD help me....I hope my kids aren't ever scared of me...And no that they can tell me things or show me things and I will not fly off the handle...
Enough for now I guess....Toodles

OK..another funny one...

But i saw this one too..and I thought it was funny,althoug not much of it makes sence to me,as I am sure the michigam one below does not make sence to others...but it is fun non the less....enjoy

You Know You're From Minnesota When...
The weather is usually 80% of your conversation. When you say "down south" you're referring to Iowa. You call highways "freeways." Snow tires came standard on your car. You've never taken public transportation. 75% of your graduating high school class went to the University of Minnesota. "Perkins" was the only hangout option in high school. You assume when you say "The Cities" people know where you're talking about. You can list all the "-dales." People from other states love to hear you say words with "o"s in them. In a conversation you've heard someone say "yah sure, you betcha" and you didn't laugh. You could pinpoint exactly where each scene in the movie "Untamed Heart" was filmed. You hate the movie "Fargo" but realize you and your entire family have that same accent. You get mad at people who think Fargo is in Minnesota. You know what Mille Lacs is and how to spell it. You have fish boiled in lye for Christmas. You know what "uff-da" means and how to use it properly. You know the 2 sports-related reasons why we hate Dallas. Nothing gets you madder than seeing a Green Bay sticker on a MN car. The only reason you go to Wisconsin is to get fireworks. You're a loyal Target shopper. You've frozen your tongue on a metal handrail before. You own an ice house, a snowmobile, and a 4 wheel drive vehicle. You wear shorts when it's 50 degrees outside in March, but you bundle up and complain in August when it goes below 60. You have gone trick-or-treating in 3 feet of snow. You've not only walked across a lake, you've driven across one. Everyone you know has a cabin or, at least, access to one. You know that Lake Wobegon isn't real and you know who made it up, where they live, and exactly what you want to do about it. You have friends who schedule their wedding in the middle of January without a thought about weather conditions. You consider a six inch snowfall a blessing for "the cities" because it provides instant urban renewal. You keep the snow tires on your truck all year because it ain't worth taking them off for only two months. Your local Dairy Queen is closed from December through February. You believe the only REAL vehicles have skis in front and a loud motor under your seat. You consider snow banks to be "just another rough" on the golf course. You have worn shorts and a parka at the same time. You were delighted to get a miniature snow shovel for your 3rd birthday. Your town isn't trying to be ironic when it plans a "winter carnival." The temperature in March is above freezing for three days in a row, and you think it's summer. You laugh out loud every time you see a news report about a blizzard shutting down the entire East Coast. You think happiness is owning a "piece of lakeshore." You never meet any celebrities except The "BODY" You know what and where "Dinkytown" is. When you talk about "opener" you are not talking about cans. You have refused to buy something because it's too "spendy." You believe that the Vikings would have won four Super Bowls by now if they were still playing in Metropolitan Stadium. You are convinced the Twins will never win the pennant because the owners are too cheap to pay the good players, so they all leave. Your town has an equal number of bars and churches. You grew up thinking rice was only for dessert. You think that ketchup is a little too spicy. Your gas station thinks "full service" means filling your gas tank, washing the windshield, checking the oil and being friendly to the customers. You (or your parents) voted for Mondale. You've seen "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in Uptown. You know that everyone has a city preference -- Minneapolis or St. Paul. You can honestly claim Germanic / Scandinavian ancestors, and have been known to say "ya" instead of "yes" Upon seeing an ocean for the first time, you say, "Hey! That looks like Lake Superior!" You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Minnesota.

something funny I came across..

You Know You're From Michigan When...
You define summer as three months of bad sledding. You think Alkaline batteries were named for a Tiger outfielder. You can identify an Ohio accent. Your idea of a seven-course meal is a six pack and a bucket of smelt. Owning a Japanese car is a hanging offense in your hometown. You know how to play (and pronounce) Euchre. The Big Mac is something that you drive across. You believe that "down south" means Toledo. You bake with soda and drink pop. You drive 75 on the highway and you pass on the right. Your Little League baseball game was snowed out. You learned how to drive a boat before you learned how to ride a bike. You know how to pronounce "Mackinac". The word "thumb" has a geographical rather than an anatomical significance. You have experienced frostbite and sunburn in the same week. You expect Vernor's when you order ginger ale. You know that Kalamazoo not only exists, but that it isn't far from Hell. Your favorite holidays are Christmas, Thanksgiving, the opening of deer season and Devil's Night. Your snowmobile, lawn mower and fishing boat all have big block Chevy engines. At least one person in your family disowns you for the week of the Michigan/Michigan State football game. You know what a millage is. Traveling coast to coast means driving from Port Huron to Muskegon. Half the change in your pocket is Canadian, eh. You show people where you grew up by pointing to a spot on your left hand. You know what a "Yooper" is. Your car rusts out before you need the brakes done Half the people you know say they are from Detroit... yet you don't personally know anyone who actually lives in Detroit "Up North" means north of Clare. You know what a pastie is. You occasionally cheer "Go Lions- and take the Tigers with you." Snow tires come standard on all your cars. At least 25% of your relatives work for the auto industry. You don't understand what the big deal about Chicago is. Octopus and hockey go together as naturally as hot dogs and baseball. You know more about chill factors and lake effect than you'd EVER like to know! Your snowblower has more miles on it than your car. Shoveling the driveway constitutes a great upper body workout. When giving directions, you refer to "A Michigan Left." You know when it has rained because of the smell of worms. You never watch the Weather Channel - you can just assume they're wrong. The snowmen you make in your front yard actually freeze. Solid. The snow freezes so hard that you can actually walk across it and not break it or leave any marks. All your shoes are called "tennis shoes", even though no one here plays tennis anyway. Your major school field trip includes camping and cross-country skiing. Half your friends have a perfect sledding hill right in their own backyard. You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Michigan.

Still no sighting

We have still yet to find our good tortoise companion Frankie...(see last post)..But not much I can do. I just hope he comes back..

Last night was the most awful night. My baby is not feeling well and she was up most of the night crying..drats!!..I finally got her calmed down around 4am..Took her back to bed and she woke up bout 7am..Yup..I am one tired lady this morning..
The hubs left for Cincinnati this morning..Gonna be gone till tomorrow night..So it is just me and the three hoodlums I let live here rent free...

I just took this test on
say I am gonna die on May 10,2031...Man that doenst give me much time..I am not good with math...But I think that is one hell of an early death...yikes..You try and let me know when you time of depatrure is....I am 30 right now now..So what that puts me at like early 50s or 60,s right...Like I said..I am not good with math and I am to freaking lazy to care..But I will go ahead and have a prearranged funeral..Ya no..So there is time for a big ole production...

Well I better go...Need to lay baby down..And take a nap myself...Toodles

Sunday, June 19, 2005 911...well..maybe not that drastic

Ok...well some of you have seen photos of the tortise I have..Frankie is his name...When it is hot outside I put him in my front yard..He loves the heat..Loves to eat the grass and mow on dandelions..I have a fenced in front yard..So I don't worry too much...Well...I am sad to report he has been MIA since about Friday morning...Friday afternoon I had noticed one of the gates in my front yard had been left opened...Which happens..But he never goes far..I mean..He is slow...!!!...Friday night I went out to take a looksy..He has a bush he tends to hide under..And he was not there..Nor was he under any of them..I know..I know...I should of kept better track of him...Well He wasn't even mine really..A few years ago my mom had bought him...And for some reason..That Slips my mind..I ended up with him...I have had custody of him for about a year now...Well I mean I had custody of him...He has flown the coop..Or walked slowly from the coop..I have put out and All Points Bulletin for him..I mean how do you go door to door asking if they have seen a tortoise?.Its not like looking for a lost dog or kitty...I am hoping he has just dug himself into a hole in the yard that I cant see...I hate to think of him out there wandering the neighborhood...Rummaging through trash cans..Chasing alley cats...Well I know e couldn't do any of that...But still He is gone...And I swear I will hurt one of the children if they brought him in without telling me..I have asked them both..And neither of them has seen him...But kids tend to only recall certain items..They suffer from short term memory loss...Unless you have promised then something..They never forget that...Well I keep you updated on the wheabouts of my fellow reptilian friend...Toodles

Ya win some..And not

Well today has been a beautiful day...Full of sunshine,heat and yes,mosquitoes..Right now it is a balmy 88 on the mercury rising..The sun is blazing...And I am now in the cool comfort of my basement...ahh...Refreshing...

The kids played in the pool..We played catch...My daughter has quite a little arm on her...

I tried talking the hubby into going for a bike ride...He does not want to use my bike because he says it is a girls bike..(really the bar is ambiguous..It doesn't look either way..And it is green..Not pink or purple or something)..So I told him that it must not be that important to him to get excersie if he can come up with a million and one excuses why he cant ride the bike..So finally tonight he said he was gonna go for a ride around the lake..But first he said he was gonna drop the rented video game he got over the weekend back to the store..Then ride out to the lake...Ride around the whole lake..And ride back...Well let me start by saying when I ride around the lake..I drive there..Throw the bike in the back of the mini van...It is a only bout a mile down the street...But it is fighting traffic and such..And I hate dealing with that...But he said he was gonna do all that...Well he left...Bout 10 minutes later he is back...He only went to the video store which is about 3 blocks...Maybe 4....Out of breath...Says..I came back to see what you guys were doing...uh-huh..Sure...I finally talked him into taking the bike to the lake instead of riding it there...So we will see what happens...And he refused to take a bottle of water...I mean it is 90 outside...IN THE SHADE..What a dope head..Hope he comes back in one piece...

My daughter said to me today..As she was bleeding from a mosiqto bite she was scratching...."Can I get a band aide..I am bleeding"..I tell them if they pick at scabs they don't get band aides...I told her I didn't think she needed one..She said she wasn't picking at it...She just bumped it with her finger and the scab came off..That is how strong she is...She cant help it..She is just so strong that the scab came falling off cause her finger brushed up against it...Yeah right ....

My son also said to me today that he gets no respect...hmm..Join the freaking club my dear....No matter what I do today..Someone is complaing about it...I have leanred that I can not make everyone I am gonna stop trying..From now on...I am gonna pick one person a day to make happy...Sounds fair to me...

Better go watch out for the hubby..He could be wheeling up on a stretcher anytime now....And then we would just have to pay for the ambulance run...Toodles

It has been a slow few days

I have had this awful headache for about 4 days now..So I really have not had much going on..But I am gonna share a story..This happen when I was about 10 or so...This is kind of depressing...But I guess it must be the mood I am in..So bare with me...

The family(mom,dad ,sister and myself) were getting ready to leave for our summer vacation..We were going to Cedar Point which is a wonderful amusemnet park in Sandusky Ohio..The best I do believe....Anyway, before we were leaving we could not find out little dog..We had just got a black Cocker Spaniel he was no more than 6 months at the time...My dad named him Magnum because he was a big fan of the TV show Magnum PI..(remember that one?)..I loved that little dog...Well the morning went on and we could not find him..I was very sad...My dad said we would look at the animal shelter when we got back...And that he would have our granparents look around for him while we were gone...Well we get home...And I learn the truth...The awful truth of what happen to my dear old pup...My dad had not wanted tot ell us before we went as he didn't want to ruin our time...But early that morning my dad had found ole Magnum...In our swimming pool...Yup..He was trapped under the solar cover...DEAD....He drowned in the night....But we suspect fowl play...We think a neighbor who we were having some issues with..Went into our backyard and put him in there...As the dog had never jumped in the pool before...And he could swim..And find his way out if he did happen to fall in...But we have no proof of any of this...But I am sure that is what happen...So there ya have it...A tragic day in the life of me...Not a pretty though.Nope..But I am over it now...Toodles

Your first love...Of music I mean

Have you ever thought about the very first record you bought..Or the very first song you learned all the words too....The first record you bought with your own money?......Has your music preferences change at all?....Most of my music loves like Elton John,Fleetwood Mac,The Eagles...Were all brought on by my dad or mom...That's what they listened to when I was little..So that is what I like now..And the same cirlce is happening here..My kids love The eagles...Elton John..And Prince..And George Michael...My son always says that country music is not allowed in our house...He is learning well....

The first record I ever bought with my own money was "the soundtrack to Purple Rain"....Where shortly afterward my mom took it away from me after her heard the song darling Nikki...(it talks about sex and masturbating)...Guess she didn't think it was good for a 8 year old to hear..Go figure.....The fist record I fell in love with was Thriller by Michael Jackson...I listen to that so much...I ruined the record.....That and a Donna Summer record we had...I use to pretend I was her..And put on a show in the kitchen...What was your favorite record growing up...And what is your favoite CD now?.........Its funny how our taste changes a little...

Funny..Maybe not so funny

Yesterday afternoon I was sitting on my couch looking out the window(without my glasses on)...And I see a kitty walking across my driveway..And I say Oh my Gosh..Sagwa is outside(that is my cats name)...She has never been outside nor has she ever tried to get out there...I quickly make a fuss about her let her out..And that someone is going to get a beating after I find her and bring her in...I run outside..No shoes or anything and start calling "here kitty kitty"..The kitty would not come..Now I cant even find the damn thing..It is long gone..Nowhere to be seen..So I get even madder if that is even a word...I am running around my yard like a freaking lunatic trying to get my cat back...I holler into the basement window cause that is where the kids are..I ask them if they will come out and help look for her..My oldest says "mom she is right here"..I looked and there was my cat sitting in the other window..ON THE INSIDE..IT wasn't my kitty afterall...I swear they were twins..geesh...

Lat night my middle child wonders up in my room before bed...She is scratching the biggest skeeter bite I have ever seen..And its on her little face...She says..And I quote"mom you have to do something about these bugs..You either need to keep us inside or we need to move...Or we need to find a bug spray that will keep them off our track"....Even my 5 year old has noticed the Deep Wood Off...Does Deep Woods Nothing...Drats.....Don't forget to take my daily poll...I am gonna change it daily..But I am gonna keep this one up for rest of day..Toodles

The real estate man that couldn't

This is a story about the man we hired to sell our home.....And so the story goes..

Last fall we had to put our home in Michigan up for sale because my husband was offered a better job in another state...Not knowing what real estate company to go with..I told my hubby to talk to the man in church...He owned one and he was always a real friendly nice guy...So we had called him...RICK the DICK....That is the fellers name....Anyhoo...Rick the DICK came to our home did the assements and what not...There were a few things we had wanted to do in preparing for the house to sell..But RICK the DICK told us not too...For reason I don't recall now...Anyway after having it for sale a good month or 2 before we left...There were no prospects of it selling..He had only shown it once...Anyway...After we moved out...My dad and his girlfriend came to the house to make sure all was good..Cleaned up things..Got stuff outta frigid and what not....So about January we had not heard a word from RICK the DICK so I e-mailed him to see what was goin on..At this point we had suggested we put it on the rental market as houses were not selling..And we had no issue with that...Then he says he had walked to folks thru the home to rent...And he said that they were not interested because the fridge and bathroom need to be cleaned...Yup that is what he said...So not knowing what the hell was goin on I decided to fly to Michigan to see what was goin on with the house..I get there and it is spotless..Granted the fridge did need a good scrubbing....So I did all of that..Even painted a bedroom upstairs...I then got a hold of RICK the DICK to tell him his services were no longer needed...He could not sell it or rent it..So we would do this on our own...Well 2 months later a good friend of mine said her parents were interested in renting it..Even buying it...So we went ahead and did that..We made up our rental agreement the whole nine yards...Anyway...My father in law(who had a home for sale with same company)..Called one night and said that RICK the DICK thought he saw we sold our house and he thought he needed a fair cut of it...My father in law told him we had not sold it..But found renters for it...That shut him up...Then recently RICK the DICK talked to the folks we have renting our house...Tried talking them into buying or renting a house they had rented from him a long time ago...But the good folks I have their now love the house and want to die there..So I say to you RICK the DICK....haa haa....I am not even a real estate professional...Yet I could find a good renter...Why do we need real estate folks for anyway?...Really they do not do much..Most of them are schemers like RICK the DICK...He is a joke to the profession...Anyway..That is the story..A man wanting money for a job he never did then trying to get them to move out...Sounds kinda like 3 rd grade to me...What do you think?...

Nothing much to say now

Morning is kinda busy..Trying to get the kiddies ready for church....Maybe something will come to while I am at the House of the Lord....(I think not).....OH I have added a pole to my site...Scroll down a bit...And I am gonna have a daily poll....Please fell free to take it..And as many times as you want till I change it....Probably gonna change daily.....Well when I have more time I will post....Have a pleasant Sunday...Toodles

Youth Gone Wild

Well today I have decided to share with all and a reminder to the members of my family a time when I was little when I got into a heap of trouble...And so the story goes...

When I was about 8 and my sister was about 6(I may have the ages off a bit...But I am close)....My parents and us were getting ready to go away..It was Saturday afternoon in our small town in Michigan..While my parents were in the house getting ready,my sister and I were playing outside..I came up with the bright idea to play in my dads little truck..kinda like an s-10 if I remember right..Anyway it was a small truck.....

So we were fooling around in the truck..I was in the drivers side...My sister on the passenger side...We were "going for a ride"...Just pretending of course...Then I decided to play with gear shift..(it was a stick shift)...And as I was trying to get her into gear..(pretending anyway)...The damn truck started to roll backwards..Yup it sure did...I was shocked...My sister who was scared out of her wits made the stupid descion to try and jump out while the truck was moving backwards..Well she somehow ended up underneath this moving truck....I kid you not...Well me in a panic runs into the house...(my mom was in the bathtub)..I tell her that my sister was playing in the truck and must have done something wrong because she was under the truck and it was going backwards into the street....(notice I did not say I was in the truck..Or that I had put it into gear)...Well my mother jumps out of the tub..Calls for my dad..As he had clothes on...And they go outside..And there was the truck...In the middle of the street nearly in the neighbor across the ways driveway....And my sister trapped under it...Well her leg stopped the truck from traveling around the neighborhood causing mayhem...The truck did not roll over her leg..It just merely used her leg as a bumper to stop....Well I got in a hellaof alot trouble trouble over that one...Yup....Grounded..Spanked...The whole bit....Not sure my sister got in trouble at all...And she was in the car with me playing....Oh well....Live and learn is what I always say.:-)

Hill and wagons...

My kids have been caught on more than one occasion trying to go down a hill in our back yard in the wagon..Now I have told them several times that this was not a safe form of wagon riding to practice..So they have pretty much went cold turkey on going down the hill in the wagon...Well last night my daughter informed me she thought of a safe way to go down...I asked her "what might that be"..She said balls...She was gonna put balls in the wagon as that might cushion her fall..While she tumbles out and breaks her neck in 2 places...I informed her this was not a safe idea..She told me that I had no idea what safe was and that she was gone go down the hill....After I told her repeately not to travel down the hill in the wagon...Her brother came in to tattle..Said she went down the hill....I called her in...She said she didn't use our wagon but the neibghor kids wagon..Because I only told her I didn't want them going down in our wagon...grr...These kids are gonna be the death me......

So that is why I am gonna try and write at least once a week a few things about myself for my future grandkids(because my kids are gonna have me dead and buried by then)...I am gonna start with a few now...Here we go...
To my grandkids....I hate country music...And you better never lislten to it..
Most of your realivites are stone cold crazies...Excluding me of course...
I had 5 tattoos...A pain I do not recomned to anyone
If your parents tell you to do something..Sit there and act like you are not sure if you understand well as you are just learning English
bring home every stray dog ,cat,rabbit,worms...Whatever you find...They will let you keep them...Because they want to do that now...
I do not recommend getting wasted the day before your highschool graduation...Long story...
By the time you get here everyone will have to live in plastic bubbles because the bugs don't die..They will eat your alive...
that's enough for now....More next week...

There got some of that off my chest...I don't think kids will litsen then either...Just as well I will be dead...I don't wanna see my next generation trying to kill themselves by going down a mountain in a freaking wagon....toodles for now

this is the hill my kids thinks is safe to go down the wagon in....I think not

Mighty strong skeeters

I don't understand..The bugs around here are like some kind nuclear warfare bugs...Nothing can kill them...Before I send the kiddies out to play..They are doused with off bug spray....And I mean if someone were to throw a match close..They would go into spontaious combustion....Yet every night when they come inside form playing all day......They have massive bug wounds covering varies parts of their bodies...And mind you..If they are outside for more than 2 hours..I have them come back in so I can reaaply there combat suits...I just don't get it....When I was little it seemed bug spray use to work....Either the bugs of the new millennium are way to powerful to withstand my fruitle attempts to keep them at bay....Or the bugspray that off produces is just not up to speed with today's bugs....I tell you..I have some superior bugs here...Even my ants that live with me....When I step on one...It keeps crawling...My weight..Put on their tiny crap seed of a body..Can keep on goin after it has been spaushed...I give it..I am officially surrendering to the mighty insect for they have more power than I...They are just laughing at me...When I walk by..They point and laugh...And I am tired of it....One of these days I tell ya...One of these days...Pow I will rid the world of them all:-)

here is my tortise Frankie basking in the sun by the sweet !!
my kiddies

A nice thought for the day

tequila and salt, you may not realize it..But it 100% true...

1.there are at least 2 people in the world who would die for you least 15 people in the world love you in some way

3.the only reason anyone would ever hate you..Is because they want to be just like you.
4.a smile from you can bring happiness to anyone. Even if they don't like you.
5.everynight before they go to bed..SOMEONE thinks of you. mean the world to someone are special and unique

8.somone that you don't even know exists..Loves you
9.when you make the biggest mistake ever,something good comes from it

10.when you think the world has turned its back on you..Take another look,

11.alwyas remember the compliments you received..Not the rude remarks


be sure to look below at the picture of my tortoise basking in the sunlight...He is creepy and cute all at the same time...LOL

And the battle continues

Ants...Yes the ants are back..In droves...When I came home from work last night (bout 8pm)..I saw a line of them coming from my side door....The funny thing is..As soon as they saw me coming..They turned around and went back outside...Really they did...But I tried to squash as many as I could..To teach them all a lesson...Well seems noone learned any lessons because they are back this morning..I cant l;eave out bug traps...You see what my baby can get into...And bug spray...Well I hate spraying that in the house..So I have tried spraying things out side where they come in at...But these ants are super ants...They just keep on booking it when I spray them....I am just so tired of the nonsense,,today I plan to go on yet another killing spree...And I hope to have this taken care of soon..ot I am moving...

Something else that happen over the weekend I forgot to mention...Now mind you I shamppoed my rugs Thursday....Sunday afternoon the whole fam was watching a program on the tele...When I looked down at the floor at the baby and I could see she needed some much needed attetion....She had baby poop on the front of her shorts..(yuck)..So I said to my hubby.."Oh my gosh look at her"..I quickly picked her up...And on the floor where she was sitting was a small mark of baby poop....I layed her down(the carpet was already gonna need a cleaning again)...And took her shorts off...Well to my surprise she had poop all over...Up her back..All over her legs...When I took her shirt off it all went in her hair ,her arm..You name it...I told the hubs to go start some bath water....As my little naked baby stands in the living room wondering why noone wants to touch her...She pees on the carpet...Oh yes..She peed...So I quickly go take her to the tub where I get her squeaky clean...Then I had to shampoo my rugs again...Yup..That's my life..And I am stickin too it..:-)

Can I have a do over please.......

This weekend, was probably the worst I have had in a long time...First Friday night my treadmill met an untimely demise..Saturday for most of the night I was thinking my son had a tick bite(he doesn't though)...Sunday..That's when the worst of it happened...First..Something came up that made us realize we can not go to Michigan this summer..Which the kids were looking forward too..And I was too..I would of liked to see my dad and grandparents..And two friends..(Jill,Jennifer.B)......Which I was really hoping to see Jill cause she is goin thro a real shitty time right now...
Then I thought I lost my freaking glasses(found them just before bed..Unharmed)..I couldn't find anything I wanted to eat for dinner...So I just ate my sugar free jello and called it good...Then the water didn't run out of my washer the way it should..So I had to re-wash the clothes twice...Then we found a spot on the carpet in the basement that is damp..It may be leaking from outdoors...As it has rained nearly everyday for the last damn month now..So we are monitoring that situation...Then last night before bed also...My hubby found a pill in the dogs water dish...He brings it to and says is this one of your pills?..Well I looked at it..And it kinda did look like one..So I went upstairs to see if my bottle was there..And sure enough it was gone...So we looked in the place where she takes all her stuff...My babies room!!!..And there on the floor were all my sleeping pills(I have to take prescription sleep aides a few times a week cause of a med problem)...She had chewed thro the bottle..And the pills were all over the floor..So I had to clean that mess up...And look around and make sure there were no strays...
I just wanted to drink myself into a coma last night...But I was too tired to care..So..How was your weekend?
