So, I am so over the fact that I deleted every one of my vacation pictures. I mean, it is killing me but what am I going to do? They are gone, not coming back. I hate my camera, I hate the digital world and I hate that Time Magazine named the internet users person of the year because to tell you the truth, Modern technology scares the crap out of me. I can’t keep up. Look, I would have never lot my pictures with a 35 mm roll of film


Any way. New Years Eve.


What I hope for this year.

1.    Jeff’s business to take off

2.    Lose maybe 1 ½ lbs

3.    keep a clean and organized house

4.    remodel our kitchen

5.    keep the kids healthy for at least two months in a row.


I don’t think these are too crazy to ask for. I am trying to stay grounded and realistic for 2007 which is also one of my personal resolutions.

Hey we are back. We had a wonderful, relaxing time with 70 degree weather. Yummy! Pictures are right here. CLICK HERE. What?? It is not working? Oh yeah that is because I deleted every     one    of    them    by    mistake.  Every freakin one of them.     

Happy I am not.

I am as giddy as a guppy about Christmas. It is the first time I have ever been away. The girls left with my parents and brother and sister in law yesterday. Jeff and I waved goodbye, grinning from ear to ear. We love our kids but we love this time of year too. Where the girls leave with my parents and we have a few alone days together where we get to work on time and watch a TV show without missing any of it and not having to cook a separate meal.  It is a nice treat after the worst week EVERRRRRRR. I am leaving for Laguna on Thursday and Jeff leaves on Saturday. I am excited to sit on the beach and do nothing. I am excited to have Christmas somewhere else and I am really excited to twirl naked around the house for two more nights.

Twirl ballerina, twirl.  

Anyhoo, I am off like a prom dress for the week and will return with beach pictures after the holiday. Happy Chanukah brothas and sistahs and very merry Christmas to y’all too. Holiday cards will be coming sometime this week. I hope.

Cr Cr Cr Crappy

In continuation on our crappy crappy crappy week, Emma was kicked out of class again yesterday. I had to leave work again. There were only three kids in her class. They were all sick. Even her Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Beech had D –D- D-D Diarrhea. Diarrhea starts with D. Why she felt the need to share that with me, I will never know. Except that in kindergarten we learn about sh – sh- sharing. At about 6:30 I got so violently ill that I think I cracked a rib. I popped both ears. At the same time, Alyssa was experiencing her first major stomach ache that we think was caused by eating 99 cent store chili. Jeff went from Bathroom to bathroom taking care of us. Emma was in a sticky, sweaty, cough syrup induced coma. The Tatum house did not smell good last night. On the other side of the crappy week is my back. I have a stress rash all over my back and chest. My brother and my sister in law come in in about an hour. Alyssa had her parent teacher conference that I could not attend and my mom is having a party tonight. I feel so tired and crappy right now that I may just park myself on the couch all night.

The girls leave for Laguna on Sunday and we are expecting rain and snow. Yes.. Snow in Vegas. I feel really comfortable with the whole family driving in those conditions. Hopefully everything will be smooth and next week will be calmer. At least I got all my Christmas shopping done. I just need to wrap.  Wr – wr- wr wrap.

It's raining puke.

This has been an extreme shitteous week. Not only did Alyssa get the UTI on Sunday / Monday morning, Jeff got his wisdom teeth pulled, and was in a lot of mouth pain, but Emma puked all over our bed on Monday night around 2 AM. She is running a fever and cannot sleep without moaning. This morning she puked over Jeff shoes.  Well, that was funny.

I am taking her to Quick Care tonight. It totally sucks rocks.

What a suckeeee Monday.

Jeff has to get his wisdom teeth pulled. He has to have a lot of things done to his teeth. But we are starting with the wisdom ones because he has been in a lot of pain lately. I took today off so I can drive him. I could have left him in the parking lot drooling because he was way out of it. I could have written "balls" on his forehead like in Garden State, but I didn't. I am a good, caring wife.

Ok so last night at 3:17AM I have a frantic tap on my shoulder. It is Alyssa and she is in a lot of pain. She has a UTI. (Urinary Tract Infection) She has had them since she was 6 months old. She used to get them every other month but they have weaned off. She hasn't had one in about a year and a half. Off to the ER we go. We get there at 4 AM and we are seriously out by 4:30AM. It is a good time to go I guess. She pee'd in a cup and they gave her some drugs.She is OK. But needless to say, I was very sleepy today.

All is well, Jeff is woosy but he will be fine. No smoking for two days so that is good. I hope.

Here we go!!

Jeff got his business license in the mail the other day!!! Here we gooooooo! We are scared and nervous but excited too!! We spent all night on our plan of action for marketing, contracts and mission statement. And if any of you have a small business in Nevada please email me a good accountant because that is the one thing that terrifies me the most!

How much do I want these?? A whole bunch. But don't get them for me because $50.00, That is just crazy talk. I can buy 25 McRibs for that. Except that Mcrib was a limited time thing and there are not available anymore.         Jerks.

The tree falled ovah

Ummm yeah, the tree done did fell ovah. We thinks it was...... Miss Kitty........ with the claws........ in the living room. She ain't talkin and Spooky is just happy that he wasn't the one yelled at. Like last week when it was Professor Spooky..... with the nose....... in the bathroom garbage.  Pics to the left.

We got our tree!!! At a bargain basement Star nursery price!!!! It is our first tree in our new house and it is wonderful having so many options on where to put it. Minnie was mesmerized by it but Spooky couldn't care less.

I love having a tree. As I should being the good Jew that I am.

Pictures are on the left.

We got Jeff's business cards and his first customer has confirmed his need for Jeff's services. He needs it done before the end of the year!!!! End of the year! That means that we may possibly have money! What a treat that would be. What a concept. Anyway. These next few weeks will be CRAZY! I may not be as cheery as I usually am.

By the way, I have added a musical portion to this show. You just have to wait a few seconds for it to kick in.
