New Years Resolution 2008

Normally I wouldn't make a New Years resolution. Mostly because it is another plan to make for the new year I never keep. But not this year. This year I want to join in the fun!!

I have many goals that i want to succeed in this year so it was really hard for me to pick one. Only because it has to be one I haven't already had planned for the last couple of months.

So I decided to go with simple sizing my life.

Meaning= I need to get rid of ALL excess clutter.
Only save what is a necessity
Only buy what is important,
Less things I have = Less mess I have to clean up.

hehe I hate to clean house. Makes me very crabby. And with so much clutter it feels like it never gets better.

This is going to be a hard one for me. I save EVERYTHING!!! And I love to go Thrift Store shopping!

But I also have learned threw the years that is also feels good just to get rid of things.

Happy New Years everyone!!!!

Cuddles!!!


Puppy Grows & Knows Your Name - Poodle

by:Fisher-Price

My daughter got this for Christmas, and it is so darn cute I thought I would share it with you.

You can program it to know your child's name, and there own name (you need to have a computer to do this.) You also need to have a usb cord. For some odd reason it doesn't come with one???

Any how my daughter fell in love right away. it was her best presant she got. She sleeps with it, brings it where ever she goes....

But who wouldn't love this adorable face :)

There I go again taking pictures of what ever possible... hehe


This little guy not only grows in a mater of 4 days it also say things and you and your child can have alot of fun. I know we did.It will say "feed me k---- and watch me grow." Also asks to brush her. The brush and the bone must have some kind of magnets or something to activate it.

Here is a picture of them that I took happy as can be!





Photo Hunt: Messy


this is a picture of my daughter eating whip cream. She is a whip cream fanatic! This day she thought that it would be funny if she made it look like she had a mustache and a beard.

R. I. P. Nemo

Wordless Wednesday #11

Normally for wordless Wednesday I won't say anything, But this one I will. I was going threw pictures to make these photo books for people when I came across this picture and it made me sad.

So I thought I would share Nemo's story with you.
All my life my dad would try to keep fish alive. For some reason or another they would always die. Till Nemo we had for over 12 years. He became part of the family. Everyday we would watch him swim. he lived threw many other fish. I guess he was just really Strong or something.

Then One day we realised that he had a sore on the side of his head, My dad till this day blames it on him self why this happened (he didn't change the water and clean it for a little while) So he did just that. But still it kept getting bigger and bigger, He went along like this for at least 6 months. My dad trying to do anything he possible could to get this fish to get healthy again. With a lot of time, money, and effort nothing worked. That's when we decided to talk about what we were going to do about it. My dad said he would just let him swim till he couldn't swim no more.

After awhile we noticed how much color he had lost and his little friend he had the time wasn't looking so good. This was one of my dad's hardest decisions he has had to make over a damn fish. We knew that we were not going to flush him like he was any old fish. But what? He called the vet to see what there suggestions were. they told us to put in him a baggy of warm water then put him in a frezer. Then he would just fall asleep. :( I still get sad to think that. I told him that I didn't want to know when it was going to be done. I felt bad enough as it was.

A few weeks later I popped over there to see my dad. I could tell he was really upset for what I didn't know. Till I looked over at the fish tank and seen they were gone. My dad Just gave me a hug and reminded me on how long, happy, and good life he lived. We barred him in the back yard like any other creature we had as kids


Thank you for listening and I hope I didn't make any of you feel to bad

Googling

Have you ever googled your name before?

For my daughter school project we had to get information on our family then I had to go and tell all the little first graders about it.

Well just for laughs I thought about googling our last name. It is not common at at all. So if anything did come up, It would be on our intimate family.

I never thought so many things would pop up.

First it came up with a couple of death certificates and sites where you can go make a family tree.

All the times my dad won the Power Ball game show .

Some other thing I have online,

Where I went to High School, and when I graduated.

My Knot page,

Where my brother works.

And some other various things about some other family members I never met before they died.

I found nothing that I was looking for. But I never really thought I would. I thought it was really interesting though.

Oh Ya and for my daughters school project.... It went good. I don't know why I get so nervous about things like that...hahahaha

My daughter came running out of her school yesturday so excited to show me her poem she had.

A Sled for Christmas

Up! Up! Up! I jump
and down the stairs I fly.
LOOK! LOOK! A brand-new sled
that I can't wait to try.

ZIP! ZIP! Bundle up,
I'm toasty warm inside.
QUICK! QUICK! Out the door,
then down the hill I'll glide.

NO! NO! It isn't fair,
it simply isn't right.
SNOW! SNOW! I see no snow,
it melted over night

Santa Clause on the fire truck!!

One of my found memories as a kid. Hearing the sirens going off, Running to find your shoes, and darting out the door, Hoping that you will not miss him.

I can remember the first time that I ever seen him as a kid. Gosh I had to been like 7 years old. Maybe even younger. Anyways my dad thought the next door neighbors house was on fire. Back then they would send a fire truck ahead of the one with Santa on it. Probably so that everyone could be ready.

Ever since my stinky was old enough to want to see Santa she was never with me the night he would come around. So this night we made sure she did not miss him. Once we started to hear the sirens we went out driving the neighbor hood. We went out and came in twice before we actually seen him. I swear you can hear those sirens a mile away.

Here is my Stinky waiting in the cold to see him. She should of been dressed warmer, but really she was only out there a few minutes.

Here is one of her waiting for him to wave at her. And finally at last here is one of him waving at us.

This weekend we plan on going to see him again at the mall. So she can tell him what she wants for Christmas...

Lost Season 3

Is coming to DVD next Tuesday!!!! I am practualy jumping out of my seat with excitement. Well not really but I missed a lot of the first episodes last year. So I am really looking forward to watching it.




I am in a hurry and this is the only video I could find right away. Don't pay attention to the times and date it will be starting. Season 4 will start in Feb. I think.

Snow storm #2

Again it snowed last night.

Again there was bad roads, Bad driving, And a stressful night to get home.

I only work about ten minutes from home, But on this day I was working my second job that is about 5 minutes from home so most of the time I don't have to deal with the stress of bad peoples driving. But not this day.... This day everything had to go wrong.

1. Pirates of the Caribbean 3 came out to dvd, and since I don't go see movies in the theater I have been waiting along time to see it. So after work I had to go to best buy and buy it. I thought I was going to slide right off the road. And I am the most careful driver there is when it comes to snow. (I guess maybe you could say a scardy cat) But I would rather be alive and my car OK then get some where fast. I will just leave early if I have to. Anyways I made it there OK, My wipers suck thought and it was really hard to see, Witch leads me to.

2. One of my wipers broke off my car!!!!! "How in the world does this happen on day like today" I am bitching to my self as I stand there trying to fix it. i finally get it jimmy rigged on when i grabbed my purse to head into the store. I see that my cell phone had been ringing. It was my lovey. So I called him back.

3. He states "my wind shield wipers don't work!!!" I began to tell him what happened to me and he was like NO! "They won't work at all they won't move back and forth!" How does this happen I have to pick stinky up in about 45 minutes So I can't even leave to get him till after that.

He wanted to just drive home And hope he is okay. I said no way I will come and get you. On my way to the school I called him and said I am on my way there shortly. But it was to late he was already driving home. he couldn't wait any longer. Not to mention I had to dive in all the traffic all the way to his work. So it probably would of took me at least and hour if not more to get there. I was really not looking forward to that.

He mad it home safe. How I have no idea. In a snow storm with no wind shield wipers. He began to come up with a way he could get to work with them not working. You will never believe what he did! he took 2 pieces of string and tied one each wiper then strung it threw each side window. hahahahaha It was so funny.

Pull the right side to go up and the left side to go down.... I should of took a picture of it. that would of been prices less.

Today we found out it will cost $80.00 to fix it!!! Just for one little piece. I am really not happy about it, But what are ya going to do?

I hope the next 2 snow falls we are going to have will go much smother.

It happened again last night.

I didn't remember it all.

It wasn't until the next morning when I realised that there was a bowl of cereal next to my bed.

I do this all the time. Eat in the middle of the night with out even knowing. I try really hard not to do it. Some times I kinda know what I am doing but it is like I am a wake but not awake. I don't know it is the weirdest thing.

I will never forget this one time, This is when i realised that I really had a problem.

I must of been really really thirsty or something. I woke up to tasting rubbing alcohol on the back of my tongue. My Lovey woke up to me totally freaking out. OMG what in the hell have I done!!! I honestly think that I woke up right a way, I don't think I really drank any. But the horror of knowing that I once tried to drink rubbing alcohol will haunt me for life.

A few nights ago I was watching Night line and they were talking about sleep disorders. All different kinds. But they brought up people eating in the middle of the night. Right then a light bulb went off. That is so me!!!

Parasomnia a brain dis function.

Crazy huh?

I haven't gone to the doctor yet. I will probably just bring it up next time i am in there. I have no need to make an extra trip. Maybe if I were like some of the people that they were interviewing. But luckily I am not that bad. They had videos of women eating all night long. Anything they can get there hands on.

I have a problem with crackers. I seem to eat them at night when they are in the house.

So I try to to buy them to often. I also never leave a bottle of rubbing alcohol some where I may leave my drink. So something that horrific will never happen again.

So cute!


Last week my daughters class was asked to write what they were thankful for, Some of them would be posted in the local newspaper. She made the cut and got in.

To a first grader that is very important.

And why wouldn't it be, I guess to anyone young or old it would be great to see something you did in the news paper......

School Project gone green

This week My daughter had to make a building for school, for there community. Our little project that wasn't supposed to take that long turned into 3 days of hard work. The end results were fantastic.

We decided to make a house with solar panels and a wind meal. So that her house would help power the community

This is the front of the house.

This is the back of the house
This one is to the side of the house.
And this is one with my daughter in it.

When we got to school. I got to see all the other kids had done. It is safe to say that we spent way to much time in ours. hahahaha Sometimes it is hard not to forget how young they are.

Even though her project obviously was not done by a 1st grader. We had a lot of fun. We sat in the living room watching movies the hole time. My daughter sat there with us the hole time trying to come up with ideas.

We also had to explain to her why we wanted to do this house. So that she could go back and explain it to all her friends.

The worst mother of the year...

Yes, Is me!!!!

I feel horrible.

Not once but twice this week I wasn't there to pick up my daughter from school. And the school had to call home for us to come get her.

1st time is was just a big misunderstanding we each thought the other one was getting her. We felt extremely bad and told her it would not ever happen again.

Then today I am minding my own business getting ready for work. When the phone rang. i never even seen the caller id I just answered it.

I hung up the phone quickly running around trying to finish getting dressed and find my keys, I ran out the door.

With this sickish feeling in my inside my body.

I drove to where we always meet her. To see she crossed that big busy road all alone. My stinky I thought. How scared she must have been.

She ran to me with a big ohl smile on her face. "You didn't know it was a half day?"

I said "Your not mad at me?'

Of coarse not! How could she? She was to happy to see me early.

Then I suddenly realised I have to work..... What am I going to do? To make the situation worse I couldn't find my work number. Nor would my works website let me in to check it and find out.

Finally I talked to work. I asked if i could bring her in with me for an hour till someone could pick her up. They said i could just come in late.

I feel like a dumb ass. What is my problem? How scared she must have been? It always seems like the papers that I need to see she brings home. Get lost before I am home to read them. I check everything.

The Flu Shot

Has anyone got there's yet? I have, and i don't like it.

At my work you they give it to you for free. I thought AWESOME. I don't have to pay....YAY

It hurts really bad!!! Not the actual shot part about it. But the next couple of days. I have never had one before and I don't know if I will get another one. My arm swelled up like you wouldn't believe. It has been three days now. And it is still all swollen. and I had flu like symptoms all weekend. Not fun!!!!

When my daughter was 2 she got the Influenza. I never knew how serious it was until I got a little older and started hearing about all the kids that dye from it. She was in the hospital for 9 days days from it. Some of my worst 9 days I have ever had!!

I have made sure the past couple of years that she got the shot, so something like that will never happen to her again. But I have never had one till now.

I hear that not everyone is a candidate to get it though, and i have a feeling I am one of those people.

Even so it is better to get one then not.

Influenza is not something that you want to have to worry about.

Haunted house

We went to a Haunted house last night. It was a lot of fun! We screamed the entire time. The legend is that way back in the 1980's people were murdered there. It is possibly hunted. So the home owner now decided to make this haunted house and raise money for the 35w bridge ca lapse. So everything things goes to a very good cause.

They took us threw the woods, We all had to hold onto a rope. While all these zombi's were following us. I plowed threw every body else because of coarse they were all after me. After going threw the woods we had to stand in another line to go threw a haunted house. It was a very slow line and we had already been waiting bout an hour and a half to go threw the first part. All of us were getting very antsy. Being the woods were not that scary. We were hoping the haunted house would be. From the looks of it, We were all a little not sure if it would be. Being it was all in this garage. This is a picture of me and some really great people from work, while we were standing in line.

So finally it is our turn to go threw. It was me, my Lovey, and my friend from work that went into together. As soon as you go in there is a revolving door that you have to go threw ALONE. So my friend starts moving the door....... When all of a sudden this ugly looking clown jumps at us screaming. We flew back so far, And yelled so loud the whole line was laughing at us.

So once we finally all go threw the door we get into this square room that has all these doors, that say EXIT. I didn't want to open any of them. Holding on to my lovey and my friend so tight we picked one to go threw...... What did ya know the wrong way!!!!! And all of these things are jumping at us. We turned back around and started running back to the square room. Were we are running around in a circle. Pulling my lovey this way and that way. He said we were joking him with his zipper of his sweatshirt. Next thing we know this clown is running after us. Me and my friend were freaking out so bad the clown actual had to say. "ok, take a breathe, calm down, Scream really loud, and go that way". Ha ha ha. Were we ever scared. But in a fun way. Of coarse we were laughing and screaming at the same time.

The whole way threw we were always going the wrong way, running into people trying to scare us. pushing each other every where. No one wanted to go first. By the time i got out of there I could just feel that my arm was all bruised up. From hitting all of those walls.

When we were getting to the end I have No idea what it was. But there was something chasing us all the way out..... We pushed my Lovey all the out screaming the whole time..... It was a lot fun. I haven't been to a Haunted house since I was a kid. It was definitely something i will want to do again.

We went to this thing with a bunch of people from work. Who of coarse the whole time they are saying oh what ever it won't be scary. This lady I work with every day. Just thought it would all be funny!!! Oh boy was she wrong.... She screamed the whole time. I even managed to get her on video coming out of it.

video Now if she was running and screaming out of there that bad, You can only imagine how much my group was.

My advice to everyone this year for Halloween. Go out, maybe bring the kids, Get scared, Have some fun. Isn't that what Halloween is supposed to be all about. I want to try to find another one so that I can bring my stinky too. I know she will get scared but she will love it.
