Good morning sunshines! It's bright (well, suns not up yet so its not REALLY bright!) and early Sunday morning! Our fair is leaving town today (thankyou Lord) and the hotel will calm down. Everything will be getting back to normal! But the countdown begins...11 days till brat1 and brat2 start headstart! It just aint right! I went and bought school clothes for them...they proceeded to throw a fit because they wanted to wear them NOW. I said NO and I meant NO dangit!! Anyways, I finally got them over that by telling them that if they ruined their new clothes NOW then I couldnt send them to school! I got to meet the supply man for the Presidents airplane (AirForce1), he supplies toilet paper, snacks, you name it and he restocks it LOL! He and his wife stayed here with us for the weekend. I started packing yesterday. Havent found a place YET, but wanted to get a jumpstart on packing anyways. I let the brats take garbage bags and bag up all their stuffed animals. I think we ended up with like 8 of the small kitchen size force flex bags FULL of the soft, fuzzies!! We put them in storage, just until we find something bigger and better. *still keeping fingers crossed about finding a house* Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and I shall be back tomorrow!! *Throws bloggin' hugs* BYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEe!!

Oh my! I've been touring homes, courtesy of BooMama. She came up with "Tour of Homes" I've had a wonderful time!! I have visited a lovely library at Here in the Hills, I've had tea at My Quiet Corner and I've been awed by the beautiful bright colors over at Mama and Lil' Duck Duck's place. Unfortunately I cant give you a tour of my home. It's a rental...a bad rental. We're in the process of trying to find somewhere else to rent!! It's so hard at this time of year. People come here to spend the summer, renting the houses, therefor it's hard for locals to find anything until Fall. I just want EVERYONE to know that it's been a great experience touring your homes!! They are all lovely and I have gotten so many superb ideas! When/If we ever get our OWN home, I'll have some idea of what I want done :) Thanks one and all for the tours!!!

Feast One-Hundred & Four

Appetizer
What's the funniest dream you can remember having?
One night I dreamt that my husband went to work naked! (I guess because I forgot to wash a load of his work clothes!!)
Soup
If you were a dog, what breed would you be, and why?
I would probably be a .... hmm... ah ha... a miniature doberman pincher!! Because I'm FEISTY!!!!
Salad
Continue this sentence: "I get confused when..."
I get confused when there are 25 friggin million people at my desk waiting for me to do something for them!
Main Course
Name two things that need to be done, but you are procrastinating in completing.
Easy! Cleaning my girls' playroom and packing so we can move!!!
Dessert
When was the last time you tried something new, and what was it?
About a month ago...me and my best friend went and had chinese. She LOVES sushi...me...uhuh no way! Well, she said she'd pay for lunch if I'd take a bite...I did...it was bad...I gagged...
Okay...I know it's not technically friday anymore, but hey...
Sheesh, I havent had a chance to BREATH! Since I came to work at 10:30 (p.m) I've been on the go. We have a full house tonight, so I've been running to get pillows, running to get rollaways, helping drunks back to their room (that wasnt in my job description dadgonit), you name it, and tonight, I've done it!! These two military guys come into the lobby. They have been drinking, that much is apparent. They ask where the nearest place to go get something to eat is. I told them and then told them they had better be careful because the law was heavy this week because of the fair! Well, they go, they come back safe. Then...they decided to SIT IN THE LOBBY and CALL ME FROM THE LOBBY PHONE! Not for anything important mind you, nu uh, they said they were BORED. BORED! HA! I said, you can watch TV! He says, "lets keep talking on the phone, you sound sexy" I'm like, oh please! HE WAS 5 FRIGGIN FEET AWAY FROM ME! LOL!! They turned the t.v. (on B.E.T...black entertainment television) on full blast. Please dont get me wrong, I have NOTHING against hip hop and rap music! But, I had THREE calls from other guests complaining about the noise! I asked them to turn it down, and thankfully they complied...after about ohhhh....5 minutes! Finally they went back to their room. sheesh. I had a guy yell at me because he couldnt get the room he wanted. I was like, ya know what buddy? If you'd call and make reservations AHEAD OF TIME, you might get a lake view room. For crying out loud...it's been a long night already. Anyways, thanx for listening to me vent! Hope everyones having sweet dreams :) GoodNight!

SUMMERTIME
Remember anticipating summertime as a kid? How we couldnt sit still on the last day of school because we knew we'd be OUT for 3 whole months? I remember that summer meant babysitting lil sis and being at home all day by ourselves...WOOHOO NO PARENTS!! I recall sleepovers, beach parties, and never wearing anything but a bathing suit ALL summer! And then the dreaded day would come when we'd have to go to bed early again so we could go back to school. I never could sleep on the night before school started. Right up until I graduated I'd be so nervous that sleep just wouldnt come. But now that I think about it...was it nerves or was it just that I was winding down? I always hated the end of summer! And now? I hate the thought of summer ending MORE than EVER! Why you say? Because this year I have the brats. They start school on August 10th and I AM SCARED! I admit it...I am terrified. We've had such a big summer this year...we've jet ski'd and swam and got sunburnt and *tubed the hooch* . We've done it ALL! We visited BabyLand General where we adopted 2 newborn cabbage patch babies. We strolled around Cherokee, NC, went to Nashville, TN. And now...it's coming to an end. 2 weeks until school, 2 months until the leaves start changing colors, before we know it we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas! So...I'd like to have a moment of silence to grieve for the waning summertime...

Monday Memories

MONDAY MEMORY
Precious Memories
As I travel down life's pathway
Know not what the years may hold
As I ponder, hope grows fonder
Precious memories flood my soul
Precious father, loving mother
Glide across the lonely years
And old home's scenes of my childhood
Infond memories appears
Precious memories, how they linger
How they ever flood my soul
In the stillness of the midnight
Precious sacred scenes unfold
*as sung by EmmyLou Harris
Ahh...Memories! Today I want to remember growing up in a house full of aunts and grandparents (and mom, of course). For starters...my mom was super young when she got pregnant with me...14. She was still in school and still at home with my grandma and granddad. So basically, I was just raised as gma and gpa's youngest daughter. I can remember my aunts making me play school and house and blaming things on me! (My youngest aunt is only 5 yrs. older than me) I remember my aunt Sue Sue (pet name I had for her and STILL call her) making me eat used coffee grounds! Ha...we were talking about that the other day LOL!! I remember my aunt Lisa making me eat spaghettio's that had so much salt on them that it would have probably choked a horse! I can remember my aunt JoAnn very nearly giving my grandma a heart attack while she was giving me a bath, JoAnn threw a dead snake on her back! I remember my aunt Catrina was supposed to be babysitting me, and she left me at the neighbors so she could sneak off with her boyfriend! I remember my aunt Tracy running off to Kentucky to get married when she was 15. The sad thing is...I dont have any memories of my mom when I was that little. I can remember all my aunts doing things with me, bicycle rides to the park, swimming, playing outside...I just dont know what my mom was doing :( Let me clarify that I still to this day do not have the best relationship with my mom. She has always made it pretty clear that I was a mistake. This is why I call my grandparents Momma and Papa. In my eyes, they are my parents. My papa loves to tell me the story about how I wouldnt go to sleep unless he took me for a ride in his ford torrino, or unless my uncle mikey walked me around L-Lake (in south florida). One year for easter, the "easter bunny" aka grandma (LOL) filled up a tonka dump truck with candy for my uncle mikey. I proceeded to dump the candy out and plop my butt IN and whined until he pushed me around. This became a ritual every day. I have pics, I will try to find and post if I can. Anyways, I feel like I'm rambling. I just love remembering the past. I was a super lucky kid, I had lots of people to love me and care for me, and to this day I'm considered "little sister". Like I always say, my family is the "happiest dysfunctional family" that I know!!
BTW...my grandma and I went and seen "The Lady in the Water" last night. It was definetely interesting! If you've seen "The Village" then you know that M. Night Shalayman (sp?) has a strange imagination. This movie lives up to it. From the previews we saw, we thought it would be scary, but...it was more fairy taleish. It was still good. Not my favorite, but it was ok. Next I wanna go see My Super X Girlfriend and Talladega Nights and The Devil Wears Prada...I love movies!
G'night ya'll :) Sweet dreams!

I really dont know why I havent posted this on my site sooner. It is so important to recognize the people who died so unnecessarily on September 11, 2001. On that day, I felt like MY world fell apart. I didnt know anyone. There were none of my friends or family members. All the same, I felt like it was a personal blow to ME. I'm sending up a prayer for all those who lost a loved one. God Bless You All.
2,996
Just a reminder that time is running out and there are many, many people who need a voice!


There is a great plan to give each person lost on 9/11 a voice for this coming 5th anniversary of September 11th. It’s the “2,996” Project and by agreeing to help, you will be given the name of one of our lost loved ones and on September 11, 2006, we will post all of the tributes for everyone to read. It is so that each person lost will have a voice once again and they will be more than just a number lost that day.
FAQs can be found
here. A list of those participants along with a list of those names still waiting for a tribute can be found here.
Please, won’t you join us in creating a beautiful tribute to our brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, husbands and wives who were lost on September 11, 2001?

Josh Turner


Oh Ladies...I just had a WONDERFUL experience! Josh Turner...
I just met him! I checked him in, and then out again about 1 hour later (at work) He is SOOOO nice :) His whole band is great, including his pregnant wife! Unfortunately I had to miss his concert, because I was here at work, but talking to him and "serving" him was cool beans! It's too bad we're soooooooo not allowed to ask for autographs, that would have been awesome! Ya know tho, for someone with such a deep voice, he's a pretty little guy LOL!! I finally got to meet Pam Tillis the other day too. I came to pick up my paycheck, and here she was standing at the desk checking out! I didnt recognize her at first, she's so freakin' tiny! I love my job!!! John Anderson comes here on the 28th of this month, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band comes on Sept. 23, and Blake Shelton comes on Oct. 21. *Doin' the WOOHOO dance* I'm so excited!!!!
Well, in other news, I took my yung'uns to the fair last night...along with my 7 yr. old nephew. Can we say HEADACHE?!?! I spent $80 (yup, count em I said 80) at the booth where you throw darts at balloons. I won this HUGE stuffed bulldog, a purple carebear, a frog and 3 miniature stuffed fishes. I was so disgusted with myself. They make it so hard to walk away!! We bought enough tickets to supply the whole county, it seemed like. We ate enough to supply the whole STATE! By the time we got the girls home at 11 last night, they would have slept through a hurricane!!
This morning, we took them to the parade. Oh my goodness was it hot! They chased candy, waved at the floats, whined because they were sweaty, spilled their drinks from Mickey D's...it was a mess. And oh boy all the candy they got. Like they need more hyperness! We finally got home from that, cooked chicken on the grill, then took them to the lake to swim for a while. They were out like lights at 8:00 tonight. Usually they dont go to bed until 9 or 9:30!! So me and Mr. Man got some alone time *wink wink* Anyways, I hope everyone elses weekend was at least as good as mine hehehe!! Happy sunday ya'll!!

Thirteen Songs I Sing to My Girls at Bedtime!

1. You are my sunshine
You Are My Sunshine
My only sunshine.
You make me happy When skies are grey.
You'll never know, dear, How much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away

2. Amazing Grace
"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.
T'was Grace that taught...my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...the hour I first believed.
Through many dangers, toils and snares...we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...and Grace will lead us home.
The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...as long as life endures.
When we've been here ten thousand years...bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...then when we've first begun. "Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

3. Hush Little Baby
Hush little baby, dont say a word
Momma's gonna buy you a mockingbird
If that mockingbird doesnt sing
Momma's gonna buy you a diamond ring
If that diamond turns to brass
Momma's gonna buy you a looking glass
And if that looking glass should break
Momma's gonna love you anyway

4. Jesus Loves Me
Jesus loves me,
this I know,
for the Bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong
They are weak,
But he is strong
Yes Jesus loves me
Yes Jesus loves me
Yes Jesus loves me
The Bible tells me so


5. America the Beautiful
O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

6. This Little Light of Mine
This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine,
Every day, every day,
Every day, every day,
Gonna let my little light shine.


7. "Fishin' in the Dark"
Lazy yellow moon comin up tonite,
Shinin thru the trees,
Crickets are singin and lightning bugs
Are floatin on the breeze
Baby get ready.....
Across the field where the creek turns back by the ole stump road
Im gonna take you to a special place that nobody knows
Baby get ready.....
ooooooooooo
You and me going fishing in the dark,
Lying on our backs and counting the stars
Where the cool grass grows.
Down by the river in the full moon light,
Well be fallin in love in the middle of the night
Just movin slow...
Stayin the whole night thru,
feels so good to be with you...
Spring is almost over and the summers come
And the days are gettin long
Waited all winter for the time to be right, just to take you along
Baby get ready.....
And it dont matter if we sit forever and the fish dont bite
Jump in the river and cool ourselves from the heat of the night
Baby get ready.....
ooooooooooo.
Repeat the chorus (x3)
You and me going fishin in the dark!

8. Rockaby baby
Rock-a-bye, baby In the treetop
When the wind blows
The cradle will rock
When the bough breaks
The cradle will fall
And down will come baby
Cradle and all

9. Blue Moon
Blue moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

10. The barney song
I love you
You love me
we're a happy family
with a great big hug
and a kiss from me to you
wont you say you love me too

11. MMMBOP
Mmmbop, ba duba dopBa du bop, ba dubadopBa du bop, ba duba dopBa duMmmbop, ba dubadopBa du bop, Ba du dopBa du bop, Ba du dopBadu


12. Silent Night (isnt that fitting for a "going to sleep" child? LOL)

Experience Test
Louise at www.stillnotgrownup.blogspot.com Found this at Mrs Aginoth, and I borrowed it from her because I thought it would be a fun thing :) A list of 150 key life experiences and all you have to do is bold the ones you have achieved.

01. Bought everyone in the bar a drink
02. Swam with wild dolphins
03. Climbed a mountain I've actually climbed partways up a mountain, does that count? LOL
04. Taken a Ferrari for a test drive
05. Been inside the Great Pyramid
06. Held a tarantula I held one of the nasty things in my biology class in high school, lets just say I'd much rather dissect something, and that makes me sick ;)
07. Taken a candlelit bath with someone
08. Said 'I love you' and meant it My husband, my kids, my grandparents, my sister, my nephews and niece and my best friend!
09. Hugged a tree
10. Bungee jumped (I dont have the guts!!!)
11. Visited Paris
12. Watched a lightning storm at sea Numerous times! I grew up in Florida and spent plenty of time at the beach, sooo, technically I wasnt "at" sea, but I was on the shore!
13. Stayed up all night long and saw the sun rise The first time I spent a whole night with my husband :)
14. Seen the Northern Lights
15. Gone to a huge sports game I've seen the Atlanta Braves play, the Miami Dolphins and I've been to a professional wrestling thing LOL does THAT count???
16. Walked the stairs to the top of the leaning Tower of Pisa
17. Grown and eaten your own vegetables Technically my grandparents grew them, but I helped picked them, and eat them! Also I helped my MIL in Kentucky keep her garden up, and ate from it!
18. Touched an iceberg
19. Slept under the stars Just recently, we went camping and I slept part of the night outside of the tent, but strange noises were waking me up so I got IN the tent LOL

23. Got drunk on champagne. (Never even SEEN a bottle of champagne!!!)
24. Given more than you can afford to charity Last year I gave $50 (anonymously) to our neighbor, in their mailbox, they have small children, and they are not financially able to do much for them, I didnt want to offend them, so I put it in a Christmas card and stuck it in their mailbox. That was $50 less to spend on MY kids, but it was SOOO rewarding! (my kids have a big family tho, so they didnt lack for anything)
25. Looked up at the night sky through a telescope

I didnt post yesterday because I get so discouraged when I come online and no one has visited my site. I know that sounds petty and childish, but hey, I'm entitled right? LOL! I missed my monday memories yesterday, but I'd like to take a second to tell you what my memory was. January 16, 2002 my FIL died. He was a wonderful person. He never got to meet my little girls, he wasnt here for my wedding, he never got to see his baby (MR. MAN...the hubby) settle down, he usta be wild! When I picture him in my mind I see Abe Lincoln...believe it or not, he looked JUST like Honest Abe! Anyways, about a week before he passed away he was diagnosed with lung cancer. He'd been sick for a long time tho. I had known the man all my life and it just really hit me hard when I walked into his bedroom and discovered that he wasn't breathing. I used to work at McDonalds and when I'd get off I'd bring him something to eat, every night. It would be like 2 in the morning and I'd go see him! He usta call me "chubby checker" LOL!! His last words to me were "take care of my baby, help him settle down" Anyways, I just wanted to tell ya'll about someone special that I loved very much. RIP Ed Mckinney We Love You! Spent today taking the girls for a well child checkup, they were really impressed with my girls :) Then we went house hunting...for somewhere to rent, we cant afford to buy right now. I found a BEAUTIFUL old house, the grass was about a mile high and there was no for rent sign, but I'm gonna find out who owns it and see if they're interested in renting. It's 2 story, with a huge wraparound covered porch, that has a room over it. I WANT IT!! I will NOT stop until I find out about it :) Everyone cross their fingers for me! Have a good night ya'll.

Monday, July 17, 2006
Good morning all!! I've had a super busy weekend, so I havent been blogging much! Friday and Saturday my sister and I had a yard-sale...talk about a pain in the hiney! I made good money tho! Ok...so far, I sound really excited huh? Every sentence until now has ended in a "!" LOL Anyways, Sunday we spent the day at the lake. My sister and BIL have a boat and jet-ski's. I am SOOO sunburnt! I swear...I used half a bottle of spf 45, but does it help? NO. I burn no matter what I put on! My girls LOVED the jet-ski's, we rode them ALL day! I let my sis talk me into letting them pull me on the tube, while she drove the boat...NEVER AGAIN! I swear, she bounced me around so much I STILL feel like I have a head full of marbles. On the 19th, I get to meet Pam Tillis...well, hopefully anyway. She will be staying here where I work. Wether she checks herself in or lets someone else do it, I dont know, but I know she'll be getting here on my shift! My best friend also works here and she's met Trace Adkins, Terry Clark, Charlie Daniels...I dont know who all else. We have a concert hall here in big ole Hiawassee, and the stars come here during the summer to sing. My favorite so far has been Jo-Dee Messina and Joe Nichols. I'm tellin ya'll, Joe Nichols is one good lookin' sunuva buck! Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is also coming, they sing my girls' favorite song "Fishin' in the Dark" Our fair starts this coming wednesday and Josh Turner is coming to sing...you better believe I'm not gonna miss that one! Sheesh, I'm so tired, I dont know how I'm sitting here typing! My eyes feel soooo heavy! Oh well...I'll post my Monday Memories in a little while :) Hope everyone enjoys their monday!! hehe...

True Wife Confessions

Monday, July 10, 2006
hehehe ya'll have got to visit http://truewifeconfessions.blogspot.com/ I LOVE IT!!! All the stuff we would all like to say to our husbands, but for our own reasons, we dont...it's all there! I know I've read at least 5 that apply to my husband/marriage. I'm all about the posting today already shheeesh!!

"Happiest Dysfunctional Family I Know"

While I was cruising thru some of my favorite blogs...I stopped at www.oldhorsetailsnake.blogspot.com and her post "Hoss's Prime (Cheap) Sandwidges" caught my eye! She visited a site, www.blog.outer-court.com that does reviews of websites. In like 1.5 seconds! So, when I read the review for mine... Review of MoMmY nEeDsA mAi-tAi !!!
"I just saw . It must have taken many years to craft the page. Just perfect. (...)The URL has 41 characters. That's just the right size. Don't get me wrong, I expected the creator to succeed. The color scheme is influenced by tribal art. If only I would have a splendid page like that. There are 43,052 characters in the HTML source, which is a high-quality length for the Firefox browser. A masterpiece. The HTML source is classy. What a great page! Seeing MoMmY nEeDsA mAi-tAi !!!, I'm simply in awe. The page contains 85 links, a good amount. The king of all web pages."-- Jeff Reid, Learning HTML

I CRACKED UP! What the heck kinda sense does that make??? LOL. Anyways, go try it out, I bet it tells us all that we have "masterpieces." In further news... I would like to post my Monday Memories while I'm here. Here goes...


MONDAY MEMORIES

The memory I would like to share goes way back to when I was a little bitty young'un! My mom was really young when I was born, so of course she still lived at home with my grandparents. Well, there was also my 5 aunts and my adopted uncle all living at home as well. I was raised by my grandparents basically, so I was categorized with the kids instead of a grandchild. My youngest aunt is only 5 years older than me! Anyways, I was always the guinea pig...they would make ME ask for things because they knew that I typically got what I wanted. I remember one time one of my aunts (susan) made me eat used coffee grounds. I was talking about it recently, I didnt know who had made me do that, I just remembered doing it! She admitted that it was her! They used to play school and house with me, and tote me around on their bicycles. I can remember going on dates with them when they started dating, and I can remember them sitting me in the crook of a tree branch and leaving me there. I was little, which means I was scared! They never called me Sam or Sammy, they always called me "Janea" because Jane is my middle name. To this day, they still consider me their baby sister :) I am so blessed to have a big, close family. There is always some kind of conflict between different members of the family...so I call us the "happiest dysfunctional family I know!" But...we got love :)



I would like to thank Bex from http://www.bexlife.com/blog for telling me about http://www.PaperBackSwap.com . I went over and joined and used her as my referral! I think all you readers out there should go over and check it out!! The latest thing that I'm reading right now is a Jude Deveraux book... "The Mulberry Tree" It's awesome, it's got love, mystery, comedy and tragedy all mixed together!! Have a good night everyone :)

Lazy day

Sunday, July 09, 2006
Hi ya'll! I didn't do ANYTHING today LOL It was just a super lazy day. I went to Bingo with my sis and grandma yesterday. Yes I said B-I-N-G-O!! It's not just for old people anymore hehe. We went to a tribal bingo in Cherokee, North Carolina. They gave away a $35,000 jackpot...just not to me! They also gave away $1500 per regular game and $1000 per special game...again, not to me! I didnt win diddly squat, talk about disappointing eh? Anyways, thats it, thats all I did :)

Blog Breakdown and Mai-Tai's

Saturday, July 08, 2006

As ya'll can probably tell...there have been some changes made to my blog. Well...this is because, while I was trying to edit some things, blogger decided to erase EVERYTHING except my posts...and some of those DID disappear as well. It has been a VERY stressful day :( For starters, our paychecks didnt come today...helloooooooooo...can't do much without $$$!!! I had plans for tomorrow that had to be cancelled because my babysitter decided she couldnt babysit. My grandma's radiation treatments have been making her feel yuck-yuck. UGH...it's just been one of "those" days! Anyways, I just want to let those of you that come and leave comments know that I really really appreciate you! I'm still trying to figure this stuff out, some things about blogger confuse me...like the fact that my profile, archives, ladada...etc...are all on the BOTTOM of my blog...whereas I want them on top, next to my posts. I really honestly could use a mai-tai right now LOL! And...for those of you who are wondering what a mai-tai is...here's the recipe:

MAI-TAI's

1 shot of dark rum
1 shot of light rum
orange juice
pineapple juice
grenadine
maraschino cherries

you take a glass...put the rums in, then add a shot of each of the juices, then pour some grenadine in (to taste) and toss in a coupla cherries. And there you have it! Any of you that are like me, I like mixed drinks that taste more like fruit juice than anything. My preference is to add more pineapple juice than orange. But ladies, beware, depending on the size of your "shots" you might get sloshed pretty quick, hehehe. Soooo...make one, two, or six and enjoy! For more cocktail/mixed drink recipes visit www.Mixed-Drink.com . And, by the way, I am NOT an alcoholic LOL I rarely drink, it's just that sometimes I feel like I NEED a mai-tai!!!

Friday Feast 101

Feast One Hundred & One

Appetizer
When was the last time you visited a hospital?

The last time I visited a hospital was June 27, 2006... My sister had a baby! Savannah Ann 6 lbs. 2 ounces. 18 1/4" long and BEAUTIFUL!!!

Soup
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how ambitious are you?

Sometimes I am probably OVERLY ambitious!!

Salad
Make a sentence using the letters of a body part. (Example: (mouth) My other ukelele tings healthily.)

(LEG) Let Elmo GO!!! (that would be yelling at my girls to stop fighting over "tickle me Elmo") hehe

Main Course
If you were to start a club, what would the subject matter be, and what would you name it?

I would start a book club! It would be called "Fact or Fiction in the Kitchen" because the kitchen is my favorite place, thats probably where the "club" meetings would be held! We'd discuss books that we have read, would like to read, etc...

Dessert
What color is the carpet/flooring in your home?

Ugh...We rent...so we can't change the ugliness of the carpets. It's puke green all through the house except for my girls' play room and THAT one is ORANGE! In the kitchen we have linoleum, and in both bathrooms it is tile.

MONDAY MEMORIES

I can remember when I was a little girl. I would get so excited when July came!! July 6th is my birthday, but when I was little we celebrated my birthday on July 4th. Everyone would get together and go to the park and we'd have a cake, a cookout, games, and fireworks at dark. My family always made me feel so special, like the fireworks were especially for me instead of celebrating the freedom and independence of our country! One year in particular stands out in my memory; I wanted a "cabbage patch doll" cake. My grandma searched hell and half of Florida to find someone that could make me a cake in the shape of a cabbage patch doll! Well...by george she did!! The cake was laid out on the table with all the food...then it started to rain. I'm talking it was a friggin' downpour!! My beautiful cake was getting ruint! The icing was running, and it sure didnt look much like it was supposed to anymore! Well...instead of freaking out, we just grabbed forks and dug in! Imagine that...my whole family sitting in the rain eating soggy cake! It was the best day in my childhood life! Well...here I am 3 days away from being 25 and STILL getting excited about my birthday and the 4th of July!!

Happy 4th of July!!

God Bless America!!!

Sunday, July 02, 2006
Another super sunday! We went to my grandparents house today for my husband to paint their new dining room that we built. They said to come hungry because they were planning on cooking on the grill. Mr. M (is what we'll call my husband from now on) painted, I laid in the sun, the kids played in the pool and granddad cooked on the grill. We thought they planned on cooking hotdogs and hamburgers...no...we got big beautiful juicy TBONES! OMG can we say yummmmmy?!?! So tender they just were falling off the bone! It's sad when the highlight of my day is a tbone huh? Anyways...I got sunburnt, my girls just turned brown, and we enjoyed one helluva meal! And...I'm feeling much better than I was yesterday! I just felt so draggy and pukey all day. My best friend says I'm being a hormonal Bitch and that I'm pregnant. I just think that it's everyone else being hormonal! LOL! I got in a fight with my mother yesterday...wich is nothing new, we can't seem to get along. But hey...I got lucky. I have my momma and papa (grandma and grandpa) who raised me as their own. Well...thursday is my birthday, so I'm hoping I can come up with a good T13! Hope everyone has a great night!

Hi ya'll...not too much to say today. I'm not feeling so great! Hope everyone has a lovely day.
