I used to take my camera everywhere and had tons of pictures. I haven't done that in awhile. We had dinner at mom's house for Rosh Hashanah. (sp) and I didn't take one picture, even though I had my camera in my purse.

Well, it is a new year. La Shana Tova everybody! Jeff and I are starting this year off fresh. We have two major goals that we would like to achieve within the next 6 months. As soon as we achieve one of them I will write about it but until then I don't want to jinx them.

Nicole sent me some pictures she took of the camping trip. They are in B & W. On the left.

Jeff was standing out side this morning barefoot, in jeans and a button down shirt. He just shaved his head again and was smoking a cigarette. And as much as I hate that he smokes, I will say that he was a smokin’ hottie this morning. He looked so good that it practically took my breath away.

Dimes

I am starting to find dimes again. This is weird. My Uncle Dennis, my mom's brother used to collect dimes as a kid. He kept them in cigar tins. When he passed away last March, my mom and I would find dimes all over the place. After a few months I stopped finding any. And for some reason, I started noticing them again. In the washer, the car, etc... I think of him everytime I find one so I am happy about getting them again.

 

More pics on the blogger.

Emma fell asleep on my chest last night. This is something she has only done 1 or 2 other times. It was wonderful. Her sweaty little head stuck to my chest. I asked Alyssa how I was going to get her upstairs into her bed. Alyssa said “why don’t we drag her up the steps?”

Alyssa Hayley, so caring.

 

They had presented me with a possible promotion at work I was truly honored but I could not take it. It was an on call 24/7 job and that is not do-able. I like where I am and although I would like to make more money, I would rather be poor and happy then rich and miserable.

 

Third baby is still on the table. Not swept away like crumbs, but a permanent thought, such as salt. This is not a good analogy because sometimes when you use salt it turns out to be a mistake. I gonna have to use Spicy brown mustard which is never a mistake.

My head is spinning. I just feel as though I can’t catch up with events going on. My job may be turning into something else. I am going nutty. I want to stop and smell the roses but I can’t. I am so tired. And, I have nothing to write about. L

Camping pics are up!

They are out of order but the camping pictures are up on blogger. Click the link on the left. And please, feel free to feel my pain as you look at the only two pictures I have of the first day of school. One blurry shot and only one picture of Emma. NONE of Alyssa and absolutly no proof that she actually wore a dress.

Delusional daughter

I went to Parent information night at Alyssa’s school last night.  This is where you meet and greet the teachers. Her teacher was way hip. Much different than last years Barbie doll who was way into structure, structure, structure. This teacher was all about the kids doing their own thing which I love. Alyssa is all about her own thing.  I was looking at some of her work in her desk. There was a paper she had written titled “all about me”. She wrote about me, Jeff, Emma, Otis, Spooky, Minnie and her two pet guinea pigs. Yes, that is right, her two pet guinea pigs. This let me recommend to all of the parents out there. These pigs are so neat and clean and quiet that I don’t even see them. Yeah… we don’t have guinea pigs.  When I asked Alyssa why she wrote that we have two guinea pigs she said that it sounded good. At least she acknowledges the fact that we really don’t have any. She could claim that we do but only she can see them. I wouldn’t want the suckers to get loose and have Jeff step on one in the middle of the night. Invisible guinea guts are a hassle to clean off your shoe. I will deal with Alyssa and her imagination later.

I had my review at work. I got an excellent score and I got a 3% raise. Which I am told is really high. Unfortunately, it breaks down to .39 cents more an hour. (sad music) It will hardly make a dent. I only have one party booked in the next few weeks but hope to get some soon. I sent out about 15- 20 flyers so if you get one, be a pal, book a party. I had two people from my past call in the past few weeks. It was really weird, I was totally thinking of them.

I need to shape my eyebrows. It is really bothering me.

Seriously. They are also thinning. I am one step from drawing a permanent surprise on my face with an eyebrow pencil.

My boobs are itchy. Does that mean money is coming?

Bass Pro bottled water is not bottled at the Bass pro shops from the aquarium where the mermaids swim. Do you want to know what the water tastes like? It is Bass without the B.

Is it wrong that I stop to listen to the Cheetah Girls sing Strut on Radio DIsney? Is it wrong that I watched the entire movie willingly?

So I am back. And to all three of my readers, thank you for your patience. We have a lot going on and I needed time to clear my thoughts. Some things I am not going to discuss here because I don’t know what to say.

We had an extremely busy week.

Last week we went back to Tuacahn in Utah to see Peter Pan. It was very sweet and we had some kick ass seats. It wasn’t as good as last year’s shows but it was very nice. We stayed at the same hotel and swam all weekend.  On Wednesday, it was the first day of school for Alyssa and Emma. Emma was so friggin cute. She was ready at 6:30 AM with her little back pack. She is eating it all up too. Alyssa loves her teacher and is already protesting the fact that you cannot eat with your friends at lunch but you have to stay with your class and eat. She has encouraged my mom to join the GPTO (Grandparents Parent teacher organization, it used to be PTA – Parent teacher association) to complain about it. Mama’s little radical. For Labor Day weekend we went camping with Nicole and her family. It was great being with everyone but I can honestly say that I am more of a hotel person than a tent person. The girls had a great time even though Emma burned through all of her clothes in the first day by falling in the creek three times. It was a really groovy weekend. I will have pictures of everything real soon. Pictures of Tuacahn are on the left.
