well, a nice afternoon post here. I just wanted to say that I have been working on one of the children's books, and I nearly have the story idea complete. It needs some serious brush up work, but the concept for the most part is all wrote down.
I also have learned I am not the artist I thought I was. I tried sketching some pictures, I nearly wet myself from the hideousness that was my drawings.
Maybe if I work on it more, I will be better. Then again maybe not.....That is a book all in itself. It truly looks like maybe I had a one too many drinks and grabbed some colored pencils.
I have a bit of a rant here. We all know yesterday was Meg's birthday. My MIL called about 4 times, she even called last night and talked with meltdown spawn...She then called back not even 15 minutes later to thank us for letting him call her..
um excuse me MIL, you called us.....Please take your pills and call me in the morning
Then my sister called her, she got a call from my grandparents, got a package from my dad and future step mother.
Now what about the FIL....Well no call, but he said last week sometime he was just going to send her a savings bond...A 50 buck savings bond..
I have no problem with the savings bond per say.....But when that is all you do for every birthday and holiday, you are a cheap bastard. I don't normally like using curse words, but it pisses me off..Put some damn thought into something for once.
And the hubbys brothers did not even acknowlge she had a birthday. No call, no card...I swear, when his brothers kids have birthdays I am the only one who remebers and I make sure we get a card out and I usually try and send an email to let them know that something is in the mail...
I told hubby last night that I done remebering his families birthdays. From now on he is in charge of calling, card sending, and whatnot...
Here are two pics from yesterday..It is Toddler spawn enjoying the fruits of Meg's birthday and Meg showing off her cupcake. We get the cake Friday for her party. The damn thing better be cute too
you enjoying the picutres, yes me too..blogger sucks today.Im outta here
