Memorial day weekend

Such a fabulous weekend! We went to the annual Memorial Day extravaganza at Abbe's development yesterday. It was so much fun. The kids had a blast. Alyssa won the Limbo contest! Last year she won the Hula Hoop contest!

And both girls entered the Talent Show again.

I went out.. ON A FRIDAY NIGHT!!!

It has been a least 20 something years since the last time I went out on a Friday night. It is really very exhilarating. Abbe text me yesterday at about 9 AM and asked me to go see Danny Gans with her.

Danny Gans is this generations Rich Little. He does impressions and sings. He has his own theater in The MIrage and it was completely sold out last night very impressive. I had a blast. We had a blast.

We are very old. We were home by 10:00PM And that was fine. It is Memorial Day weekend and Jeff has the next two days off too. We did nothing today but chill and eat Chinese take out. Jeff did some work on the backyard and we will do more tomorrow but it sure was nice actually doing NOTHING.

When we went to Shrek last week I tool some pictures of the girls in front of their displays.

I showed some women at work my Drowsy tattoo today. I guess it is the equivalent of a little girl showing the boys her panties so they will like her.

I just came back from taking the girls to see Shrek the Third. It was OK but it was as if they threw in Justin Timberlake's character (Artie) in the last minute just because Cameren Diaz and he were dating at the time. And lemme tell you, JT doesn't really have the manliest of voices for a voice over. They could have done with out him or really played up the KIng Arthur part. Whatever, it was a friggin cartoon.  New pics on the left for your viewing pleasure.

Did you know that your boobs are NOT supposed to pop up in front?

Shut up, I will write when I am good and ready. Quit nagging me.


So I am closing in on week three at my new station. I don’t feel 100% comfortable yet. That is because I don’t know everything yet. I loved where I was but hello, money talks. In the last few months at my old place I was getting kind of well, relaxed. I didn’t really have a supervisor so I took advantage of that. I mean I did all of my work, reports and responsibilities but I really didn’t exert myself to look for anything else that needed to be done. I also knew that my boss had full intentions to bring me along to the new place. That in itself was such a huge honor that I felt disloyal to put my 100% in my current situation. Needless to say I got all of my bills paid online, all of my blogs read, organized the girls’ schedules, and planned my evening meals which included shopping lists.

Now, I am WORKING!!! I have so much to do. I responsible for the accounting for all newsroom finances. I must budget accordingly, code and organize incoming bills and follow up on missing data. I am also responsible for timekeeping, time cards and scheduling for newsroom staff. On top of this I assist with the assignment desk, answer phones, listen to scanners, follow up on police calls, put media alerts in future files and make calls backs. But wait, there is more, I am also the News Directors assistant. I organize hiring packets, interviews, and reference checks. And whatever else he needs me to do. Whew. This is work. The day goes pretty fast.


On another note, I think Jordan should win, I don’t believe that Melinda was actually 29 and I think Blake is very entertaining. Melinda is a great singer; she didn’t need Idol to get a record contract she needed the show to get noticed. Look at Chris Doughty, He was the best last year and came in 4th. His albums have way surpassed Stupid Tyler Hicks and Katherine Mcfee. And another Top Model is over with Jasline winning. Jeff and I liked her even though she was way too skinny.


Jeff and I decided last night that we are cows. We are extremely large and gross. We can barely look at each other without puking. He wants to get surgery which I think is ridiculous, we can do this on our own. We just need to put our minds to it. He will lose 20 pounds in a month if he stopped drinking sodas. It is all he drinks beside those Rock Star energy drinks which are probably doing a number on his kidneys. Me, I have no excuse beside laziness. My new place has a gym AND showers already in the place!!!! I can do 10 minutes at lunch and work out on the days that Jeff is off and I don’t have to run and get the kids. It is pathetic.


Nicole and I met up last night so she can try on wedding dresses. We went to David’s Bridal and were literally held hostage and could not leave. We had to practically sneak out to escape. We went in with full intentions to only see the $99 dresses and nothing else. How we ended up with Nicole in a $700 dress escapes me. It was friggin gorgeous though! She looked spectacular. I don’t know how I will get through this wedding without hyperventilating and throwing myself on her as she walks down the aisle. I have waited 15 years for this wench to get hitched.  I am a bridesmaid and the girls are flower girls. It should be beautiful if I can get myself from Cow to maybe a filly. I am starting in June. Why not May? Because I don’t want to. Shut up.

I love them

I love them

I have a few more pics of last week. When Emma lost her tooth and we went out to dinner. I am very challanged at my new job and I like that. I just wish I knew what I was doing!

We picked apricots from our tree. Last year we didn't get any because the birds ate them all. This year we picked them kind of early because I was afraid of losing them. I am going to make jam.

A week of a million words

It has been quite the week. A whirlwind of events. Friday was my last day at KTNV. They threw me a HUGE party and gave me a an obscene amount of credit on a spa gift certificate. It was wonderful. They decorated my desk again but I do not have any pictures that are worth anything. Pictures of past few days are HERE .Emma lost her first tooth on Saturday night. We had a crazy day. We went to the Sun City Garage Sale then we went to a party at Pump it up. By Saturday night we were wiped out. Jeff came home from work at 8 PM and had to go to bed at 10 because he had to be up by 3 AM. His flight to Missouri was at 6. He had to be at the airport by 4:30. I stayed up until 1 packing him and the got up with him at three. Emma was so excited about her Tooth Fairy money she woke me up at 6. Needless to say I was very sleepy. Not sleepy enough to not go to the Outlet mall though. Later that day Emma lost another tooth. We all went to Buca De Beppo for dinner with my mom's friends. THEN.........I started my new job at KVBC on Monday. Woke the girls up at 6 AM to make sure that we wouldn't be late.

Jeff is whoopin it up with his buddies in Springfield at the Archery Jamboree and I am playing single mom. It is making me extremely bitter since I haven't had an actual day off in 10 years. Oh, I forgot about tonight where we had to go to Urgent Care because Alyssa had an outbreak again. We have an actual urologist appointment on the 24th.

I am mentally and emotionally exhausted.
