and I wanted another baby....

Who am I kidding? I am 107 and way too old to be shlepping these kids up and down a street just so they can whore themselves for free candy. I am exhausted.

Those of you who are close to me have heard me say that my life is divided into two parts right now. BW and AW. Before wedding and after wedding. My friend, Nicole is getting married on November 10th. I have known her for as long as I have known Jeff. we all met at the same camp. I have waited 15 years for this wedding and I am thrilled for her. I am also the Matron of Honor.  My kids are the flower girls and Jeff is a groomsman. We are all in this wedding.  I am excited because I just know that there will be an excellent photo op for the family. I am excited for Nicole and Eric too but I am thinking about me and my family.  Actually I am only thinking about me. It will be a blast because all of my closest friends will be there. Plus my parents. I want to laugh and dance and have a great time. I haven't danced with my husband in several years. I want this wedding to be a new life for everyone involved. A fresh start. I will keep you updated.

The business

The business is now my life. The business has taken over and has become one of my children. The business is the blob that has absorbed our brains. We eat the business, sleep the business, cry and poop the business. We got our first "non - friend", real person, client today and it was very good. A very high profile Las Vegas kinda client and it was good. Jeff charmed their asses off and it was good.

Need to be said:

I am so sorry to:

My niece, Anna Beth and her family

and to

Stace, and her family

Anna Beth, We love you so much, you will get through this with faith and the love of your family.

 Stace, call me if you need me, I am thinking of you.

Ho hum

We finally got the carpet replaced in my house. Two months after the "flood" They arrived at 8:20 AM to install the linoleum in the bathroom and continued on to the carpet until 6:30 PM. These guys were so good. The steps were a pain in the butt. The poor guy would finish 1 step every 45 minutes. And every time he would finish he would look up wishing the rest were gone. And the other guy was allergic to cats so even though fat ass Minnie was locked up in the bathroom the guy was a snotty, wheezy mess.

Right now I am having the toilets replaced because when one commode saw the attention the floody one got it quit working too. We were down to a 1/2 of a bathroom for 4 people. We were starting to panic but we steered clear from Mexican food and anything that would give us the "Mcshits."

We got paid a third from our second customer yesterday. And we still have a $400 balance from our first guy.

By the way. I quit my job at the end of August to work full time for Jeff's company and to be home with the kids and not pay any daycare. I am thrilled with my decision but feel  guilty and scared at the same time. Hence me waiting almost two months to tell the Internet. It has been for the best because I have been home during all of the home construction. I am starting serious advertising on Wednesday so hopefully that will bring more customers in. It has also been great because my mom retired on the 25th of August so we have been spending time together. That is until she left on their three week cruise to Egypt, Turkey, and Greece. They come home on Wednesday. But I am sure they will be all spacey until Friday.

Hope all is well internet, kisses.
