Happy Birthday Morgan :)

I know.. I'm a couple days late at posting this birthday shout out.. you'll always know me being a day late and a dollar short for everything! Not intentionally.. never.. I try very hard.. (yes, I told my kid happy birthday on her real birthday..jeeze!!) but she has been at her dads house, so we have still not got to celebrate and I'm feeling sad :( I cannot imagine that my baby is 14 ....where did all the time go? I find myself praying the other kids birthdays will come faster.. just grow up for pete's sake, but with her.. oh how I wish she was still a little one.. I'm not ready for her to grow up.. AT ALL.. Starting high school.. soon will be driving.. that is enough to make me start drinking (more frequently..ha)... no, but it makes me sad... and happy.. and scared.. yeah.. scared.. afraid.. I do not look forward to dates, driving.. all the stuff.. I want her to be little (sorry Morgan.. I am not trying to embarrass you..or trying to be "gay"... I'm much to cool for my daughter...haaaaaaaaaahaaaahhaaaaa Oh wait, I think its the other way around :) I love you babygirl.. Happy Birthday :)

Beautiful Branson !!!

We've been back now for a couple days.. Branson was beautiful, although the mountain's made me weak at the stomach :( I drove the last 5 hours..all through the hills. I do not like heights!!!!! Loved looking..hated driving! Anyhow, we got off to a late start as our car was not finished getting looked at, so we arrived to the family reunion a day late. The kids did great on the ride there.. getting out to stretch at every rest stop available :) Our condo was gorgeous (thanks Vicki/Rod) and the we enjoyed the pool (and I enjoyed my margaritas :) YEAH!!! and got a kick ass tan!! Chris was sick the entire trip.. so he hung out at the condo.. we did go and see a show on his birthday; Pierced Arrow.. I cannot remember the comedians name, but he was hilarious! The group sang contemporary christian/country music and it was great. Morgan went with Aunt Cindy & Fred to a show and enjoyed it very much. I will have to ask the name of all I know is he plays the violin & has comedy & Japanese.. Christo and Chris went and seen Superman at the Imax.. he was all syked when the returned. I got a little bottle of Midori and he thought I was awesome since I had Kryptonite (yes, your mother can take down Superman so don't mess with me boy!!)..ha Madison lost her first tooth and she hit everyone up for cash! The tooth fairy found her all the way in Branson := Sydney caught a lizard and kept it for about an hour.. she named him Princess.. she also found herself a great big farm in Indiana that she decided she was moving to when she gets big!
I have pics, but need to get the cable from Jenny so will post soon.. it is very pretty there.. I got some tone back in my legs walking up and down the hills at the camp site.. The family reunion was fun (my first one).. the campsite was close to the condos and everyone met out and b.s.'ing.. that time went by really quick, only 2 days!! The most fun was karaokee by the camp fire.. lasting memories for Morgan who declined singing and looked at the adults in a whole new light!! @@ (hopefully it will turn her away from booze!!!HAHAAAAA)
It was nice to see/meet everyone and hope their trips home were safe and fun. Thank you Jenny & Eric for all the help & thanks to everyone for a great time!! On the way home we stopped in St Louis and seen the Arc.. it was impressive. The kids wanted to go up inside of it, but there is NO WAY you'd ever catch me up there! I'll sit this one out thank you!! We also drove around trying to find Seneca Caverns.. it took a while, but we finally ended up there (thanks to the friendly police officer who gave us directions).. the cave was awesome.. the kids enjoyed it very much.. Sydney is not much into heights herself and kept saying she was going to die everytime we went down the rock steps... I think the tour lady wanted to muzzle her :) Christopher was the explorer and would have climbed through the whole thing.. Madison and Morgan paired up.. they were more impressed with the gift store that was covered in Indian wares and jewlery..crystals.. CANDY.... :)
Getting back into the swing of things has been hard! I didn't get to work today until 11:30 as I slept through the alarm and didn't get up till 10:30!! (thank goodness they need me at work..hahahaaaaaa I refuse to admit that I am only a number damn it!).. I feel jetlagged..hung over or something! It was nice to get away... now its back to the grind..

Going Going.. almost gone....'s the day.. we are leaving tonight to pick up the girls and head out for the family reunion.... getting ready to go was almost as nerve wracking as preparing for a wedding! (well, mabey not..but has felt like it).. I like how our minds look back on things that we thought would drive us over the edge & now they seem like a drop in the bucket...great survival mechanism :)
I probably will not be able to post for the week :( boohoo unless I'm off by Myself at the library or something! ...HAHAHAHAAAAA... So I'll try keeping a journal while we are there and fill everyone in on the fun times in Branson :)

I need my own computer!!! I want one N.O.W.

Oh, it's been quite a while since I've been here.. I've got writer's cramp or something ..ha.. no, truthfully.. I have alot of things to say..but by the time I can have a chance on the computer (after peeling Chris off the monitor).. I practically forget everything I wanted to talk about! But alas.. he is being entertained by the tv now, so I stopped cleaning when I seen him make the switch.. and jumped on here to write!
My mom is coming tomorrow to get Madison and Morgan for several days.. I'm doing loads of laundry to get them packed and ready to go.. and then the day they get home we are supposed to go on vacation.. I am getting soooooo frustrated over this vacation!!! We have already paid for the condo.. now we are looking at finances.. cringing .. and deciding if we should.. It's crazy that the gas to get there is double the price of the housing!! real highway robbery!! I think it would stink to not go.. but we are still up in the air about it .. it's driving me nuts! So, told mom..just come and get them.. then we'll have a couple days to figure out what the hell we are doing.. we'll let you know when we can get the girls :) Morgan told me tonight that she is going to be homesick.. ha yeah.. she has inherited the "gas-ass" gene..girls never don't wanna hear it.. she just got back a couple days ago from her dad's.. and now she's going to gramas and then leaving for vacation the day she comes back.. then going back to her dad's the day after we get back from that... busy bee :) Sydney gave Madison her pajamas tonight to pack.. said she could wear them while she went to gramas and told her to pet the kitties for her.. poor kid just got a huge scratch across her face from our kitty.. She comes down the steps..blood covered the whole side of her face.. I about passed out..cannot stomach things like that anymore!! I hate blood.. hate pain... uhhhhhhhhhhh yuck Enough of that! I still need to find a home for 2 kitties.. (so if anyone out there would love to have an adorable furry kittycat just let me know!!!!!..I'll hook you up :)

Happy Daddy's Day :)

I have yet to reach my father .. he's a hard one to get a hold of!!! I called his girlfriends.. not there.. called my grama.. she said back at noon and if I don't answer the phone then he's not here :) (she's all concerned with me calling long distance).. So, Dad.. if you ever read this.. know that I really wanted to tell you HAPPY FATHER'S DAY and that I love you very very much :)
We are letting Chris sleep in.. the twins made him such cute pics at school.. look at the little fish.. their school sends them home with really great gifts! Framed pics that they make.. how awesome! Friday morning when I dropped them off I got to have donuts and coffee as it was Dad's Breakfast.. So that was a treat :)
Happy Dad's day to you Eric.. he had to goto the hospital last night.. kidney stone or something :( gonna call in a little while..
Last night was awesome.. I got home from work.. and ate dinner.. the phone rang.. it was my best friend..Goofie Roofie.... her/Greg were right by my house and wanted to stop over.. how cool!!! We had a great visit & I was very happy to see them! They wanted to adopt our kitten (Champ).. but they forgot him when they left.. sly huh.. My mom called yesterday and wants to take Madison home for a WEEK .. a WEEK.. then when she gets home she wants to take Christo for a WEEK!!!!WHOOOHOOOO.. She's visiting Gramp today and will only be an hour away.. so at some point today I have to meet up with my mamma.. :)

#@@HOLE Monday!!!!!!!!

Well, today was the first day in over 2 weeks that I took my kids to daycare, as their poison ivy has finally cleared (although you can still see where it was)... so, I'm all excited to get back on a routine... have the kids participate in some structured activities with their pals... I open the door to the twins room.. #@@HOLE #@@HOLE #@@HOLE.... oh my! ... A little boy flailing all over SCREAMING at the top of his lungs! #@@HOLE !!!!!! Well, Goodmorning to you too buddy!!! My kids eyes are wide open.. Christo has a little grin on his face with a sparkle in his eye (he's found his new best friend..HA)... but he's so excited.. he looks at me and says "He said.."... I stopped him... Don't you DARE!!! The little boy continued.. hitting things..yelling...the teachers finally got a little control over things, but I cannot imagine being in their position that day!! .. I cannot imagine being in charge of the class on a normal day (which kills me, as I was going to school to be a teacher..ha.. having 4 of my own changed my mind pretty darned quick!).. Not that I don't love kids.. I Do.. but there are times when I cannot keep any order.. with 4... Imagine being a teacher in a class with 15.. 5year olds with one punching you and calling you an #@@HOLE!!!!! They are lucky the others didn't start doing the same!
I was so worried the rest of the day.. how my kids would react when I picked them up.. would they have a new favorite word??? but nothing.. they did not say anything.. AT ALL!!! Perhaps they are saving it for when we are somewhere "special"... yeah.. I can see it now.. Christo & Syd... partners in crime...
As you see, this mornings events were a very interesting start to the week ahead.. always look forward to Mondays such as these.. AT least everything else ran smooth :) Morgan is off with Brittany & Niquell.. tonight they are camping.. leaving in the morning to go to the Amusement Park... then camping tomorrow night.. then she'll be back.. I'm sure she'll have a blast! I want to go.. can I come with you PLEASE!!!!! I cannot believe how expensive it is just to get into those places! I know they have insurance costs.. blah blah.. but they should feed you for the day at those prices! Its highway robbery!!! Yeah.. our family of 6 will just have to save up for like.. 2 years just to go!! (well, mabey not that long :)..hey, at least the kids will be old enough to ride the damned rides!
One more tidbit... massage... now, I'm starting to become impatient with my husband.. I've only mentioned it.. 2 times nicely.. 1 time..a little sarcastically mean.. but he took a massage class in India.. when I would talk to him he would get my hopes up.. "wait till I get home"... SO, of course, I got my hopes up that WHEN HE GOT HOME (and adjusted to the time switch..which he has done).. I WOULD GET A MASSAGE!! Now, the class he took.. he had to give someone a massage while the "teacher" corrected him.. NOW, she got a damned massage without even having to ASK him.. and I waited almost 2 weeks before I nicely asked "How bout that massage?".. uh what?.. m.a.s.s.a.g.e "tomorrow.." I politely go to bed.. anticipating tomorrow.. and that was several days ago.. I asked.. again.. "tomorrow".. I'm getting mad... I waited.. I made a sign.. little cute thing.. little hint..
Your Hands + My Bod = :) He still didn't.. Why do I have to be so wrapped up on this massage thing he asks..I told him to just forget it and to give me $50.. I'd make someone else rich.. and not have to bother him about it AGAIN!!!!!!! I'm steaming mad.. Why the hell would you take a massage class.. tell your wife that she's getting a massage.. and then say "shouldn't I give you a massage when I WANT TO DO IT????? Am I way off base here?? He thinks I'm off my tree being upset... I'm so very I was so looking forward to it.. knowing that when He got home I was going to have a massaging husband sorta calmed me down a bit.. (from him leaving).. but now.. NOW I"M JUST MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Padawan

OMG !!!!!!!! Look at what I came home to.. Chris thought he would give Christo a Padawan Braid.. (like little Anakin from Star Wars).. so now my son is completely bald with a square patch of hair on the back of his damned head!!!!!!! The whole reason for the hair cut was because he got a wad of gum stuck on the Chris was gonna shave it all off.. so now.. he has this square... Chris wants to let it grow.. so he can braid it... OMG again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELP ME!!! He also wants to change his name for petes sake to Christopher Anakin.. and as I type this.. he has dressed him complete in an Anakin outfit.. and they are in our front yard fighting with light sabers!!!!!!!
He wanted to name the twins Luke & Leah.. but I forbid it.. I guess this is my payback for not cooperating :) (YEAH, like it'd be any different!)
I told Christo that I was going to shave it off.. he whined NO WAY!!! but I'm contemplating wadding up a piece of gum :) .. I cannot imagine what they will think at school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Computer Withdrawal !!!!

Hello..Today is Tuesday and it's been almost a week since my last post. The computer broke :( and Chris just finished fixing it.. and let me have a turn..ha he's sleeping!! Anyhow, we've been keeping pretty busy.. bought some fishing poles and took the kids fishing... awesome!! They loved it ONLY after the fish started biting.. before that it was "This is boring"... but it turned out great because the bluegill were co-operating. Christo hooked Madison.. (only 1 time!!).. I yelled at him before he "RIPPED" it.. so just the little tip was in.. Thank goodness!!!
Need to get to work.. just wanted to post as its been almost a week.. will finish later on..

Final Countdown.. 3..2...1

Well, Chris is coming home tomorrow :) bout' time!!!!!! I'll be very happy to see him (and yes, I'd still like to kick your $%^!#)... He's already started his flight.. so have to get up early and get him.. YEAH!!!
Today was very hectic & I think I spent my life fortune on gas running around!!! I'm so disturbed at the gas prices! Breaking the bank! I went to work so early that when I stopped for coffee, I poured the creamer in the trash can (the little hole in the counter).. INSTEAD of my cup :) I'm dangerous if I dont get enough sleep & useless without my coffee!!
Anyhow I only got 1/3 of my job done.. then had to leave and get Morgan to the Ortho.. time to get the braces!! It didn't take very long which surprised me, as I thought I'd be there for hours.. but alas, only 1 :) She's in a little pain, but went to show her friends..she also went to bed early as her mouth is in pain.. poor baby!
Unfortunately I had to go back and finish my work :( boohhooooo.. but I took tomorrow off so I can have the day to retrieve my husband..
The kids poison ivy is getting very bad.. I'm debating taking them to the hospital..or waiting till the doc opens tomorrow???? Sydney is getting it in her eye.. yuck.. They told the neighbor kid, Lena, that they didn't have to goto school today because of their poison ivy.. Later the kids also told me that Lena asked them to take her to the poison ivy.. so she tromped through it (along with mine) in hopes to stay home too.. I'd rather goto school!!!
Madison has had a loose tooth for about a week.. today we spotted the "big" tooth coming in.. she asked me to take out her loose she wants the tooth fairy to visit, but I told her Mom does not take out teeth!!! She's upset because she'll probably miss school tomorrow & they were going to eat lunch with the first graders.. Does it ever stop being soooooooooo hard??????????hectic????????

Welcome to my Isolation Camp

Why is it that whenever you really are looking forward to going somewhere.. looking forward to getting out of the house for a little bit.. seeing adults.. SOMEONE ALWAYS GETS SICK?????? Ahhhh....
Today's plan was to goto my inlaws cookout.. then go to my family's cookout at the lake.. I was thinking how fun the day would be and Madison came down last night saying her belly hurt.. then she got sick.. so we were up 1/2 the night.. YEAH>> As if these kids haven't been sick enough this month! Almost an entire month I had a sick house.. felt like sandblasting it with bleach.. but then everyone was better.. for like a whole week! ha Not now.. she's laying on the couch eating crackers.. The poison ivy has spread everywhere. I guess we'll have to goto the docs again to get shots (or whatever they do).. to dry this stuff up.. it started out small, but its spreading all over them.. and they are miserable! They don't understand why we cannot go.. as they also were looking forward to going.. They promised they wouldn't touch anyone :) but Madison.. well, she just can't go.. (The twins told me to have Morgan babysit her while we went..ha).. but told them we would just have to have our own cookout here (cook-in as we have no grill).. They looked at me with distress in their eyes.. HERE.. in this boring house?? MOM!!! What a bummer, I know.. but what can you do!
Tomorrow Morgan has to get her braces on.. been trying to figure out how I'm going to get work done.. get her there.. and where these kids are gonna go since they need isolated! .. Oh, the fun of it all sometimes..

Yummy Cookouts :)

Super Christo
Today is Sunday.. I finally got a phone call from Chris... (bout time buddy :) ha He is in Dehli.. getting everything ready to come home.. (Wed)
Last night we walked to Amy's (neighbor).. and we sat out (thanks to the good weather!).. while the kids played.. it was a nice time.. today she walked down and invited us to cook out.. so we just got back a little while ago.. she has 3 little ones (2 girls & a boy).. all the kids enjoyed playing. I was going to church for a while where Amy goes.. then I was invited to go with a another friend// I haven't gone to church for a while.. and would like to start going again.. I need to get back into the swing of things! We were talking about how if you allow yourself, you'll always find some excuse that "pardons" you from going.. (ex).. it's my only day off.. its impossible to get everyone there on time.. but I need to make it a priority for myself and my kids.. I miss it.. although I still pray & read my bible, I miss the message & miss my kids learning about Jesus.. So, I need to make that #1 priority !
I found a home for 2 more of my kittens.. Little Panda & Cleo will at least be together.. the lady & her kids came today to pick them up.. the twins act so crazy when "new" people come here.. more so than normal :) Christopher started fighting the little boy with his light saber.. by the time they left.. they were in an all out duel! (poor Christo needs some boys to play with!.. as my tree is taking a severe beating!!!) & Syd.. she keeps hanging on the lady asking her if she'll bring the kitty's back to visit..
The kids are covered in poison ivy.. does anyone know a good way to kill it is along my fence.. they got it soo bad last year & that area was forbiden.. but of course, they went in the other now its started to spread all over them again.. yuck! Morgan & her friends went to the pool today.. they got burnt.. brats! Now she'll be tanner than her Mother! I always loved the 1st day of swimming! We washed the car today.. real fun as the hose is broke.. but we just used buckets & buckets of water.. the girls just finished washing their bikes.. almost time for B.E.D. WHHOOOHOOOOO!!!! Mom needs a break!!!!!
Planning on going to a cookout tomorrow.. I absolutely love them! Yummy Yummy Food!

Husband MIA

Well, it has been a couple days since I've heard from Chris.. last conversation was about him (excited).. about being in a Bollywood movie.. he'd give me a call or email.. but nuthin!!!!! No emails, no phone calls, no nothing..He's MIA!!!!! (oh, he's in trouble!!) My lovely mind..keeps having flashes of exotic lusting harem girls...and I try to focus on .... hmmmmmm... uhhh... well......
He'd better call me tomorrow...aahhhrrrrr.. :)

Anyhow, the rest of the day ran pretty smooth.. nothing much new happened today..went to work.. came home.. kids played outside..ordered pizza (only 4$)!! What a deal!!! The delivery guys are probably taking a beating with gas prices being out the roof!
My friend Shavella asked me to goto her high school reunion with her tomorrow night.. I had plans to go.. but now not sure if I can make it or not.. I think it'd be funny to go and pretend that you had gone to school there for your whole life.... make everyone think their memories are shot :) haa.. no, I wouldn't do that.. just think it'd be funny!

Thursday, May 25, 2006

Madison got her soccer pics back and I tried to take a webcam pic of a pic.. it's the best I can do.. as Chris has MY camera in India! He called late last night to let me know that he is going to be in a Bollywood Movie.... ~~ So, that should be interesting! I'll let you know what its called as soon as I know..
Everyone slept in this morning as noone set the alarm!!! aaahhhhhh ..we got up at 8:30.. thats always fun.. running around like your hair is on fire when your 1/2 sleeping and have to get 5 people ready and out the door.. almost too much to deal with.. Thank God for coffee!!!!!
Just got home from work.. I'm so happy the weather was nice today.. the kids (with the exception of Christo, who wants to play "Greem Starwars" want to go outside and play, so gonna cut this short and go have some fun!

Wild & Crazy Wed...hahhaaahaa

Granny & Her boyfriend :)

When I seen this pic it reminded me of my grammy & her new boyfriend, Gene...(with the exception that she has pink hair :) Those two are the "party animals"... Funnier than hell.. Love you gramma..
Aside from taking Sydney to the doc today for her checkup.. not much going on.. I mowed the yard which was beginning to look like a hay field.. I ran over a damned tree root and broke my mower, so have to borrow Eric's.. until I get mine fixed.. so my yard was getting a little wild! I found a dandelion that was almost as tall as Sydney.. World record!! Ha The neighbors have probably been cussing me out! Sorry
Madison went to soccer practice today with Ryan.. and she got her pictures.. I'll have to post one, if this webcam can get a good shot of it.. Me/twins went down to Jenny's ..and the kids got to play w/ Jalen & Jaren)
Morgan toured the high school today.. all she talked about was the boys
( :( boo hooo hoooo .. and the nachos/slush for lunch.. To much education for one day I guess ;) I guess thats what you talk about in 8th grade though.. so.. boo hoo
I ran to the gas station tonight to get some pop & smokes.. I ran into Andy, Chris' cousin.. we talked for a little while.. he said that mabey him & his mom can stop over tomorrow.. it will be nice to see them.. I hope they can come over! I need to stop in and see them more often.. just always fear that the kids will be to .. umm WILD!!!!!! Andy said he usually goes fishing on Sunday & the kids have been asking to go.. I wish we had some fishing poles, as it would be alot of fun!! I imagine they'll be interested as long as the fish are biting :)
Gives me a flashback to when my family went on fishing trip w/ Granny & Grampa.. to Michigan.. my bro, Michael & I are fishing in the boat.. he casts.. and rips the damned hook right into my shoulder! I almost pushed him in!.. oh, Michigan was so fun.. Granny is afraid of water, but Grampa talked her into going out for a ride w/ us.. we are speeding across the water.. (gramp had a ranger boat with 150 motor.. all glittery.. so pretty).. anyhow, the oar comes flying up and smacks Gram right in the head.. I don't think she got in that boat ever again!!!

Kindergarden.. here they come :)

Morgan & Cali

I just got off the phone with Chris.. I was getting ready for work and hear his voice.. wth?? The phone didn't ring, but he was on answering machine.. I scramble to find the phone as he was getting ready to hang up I click on.. caught him just in time!! My ringer was off!! He sounded good.. said he's waiting for bus to goto Mumbai.. then going to Dehli and coming home.. 31st..
Well, I took Christopher to the doc yesterday.. the daycare thought he had strep because he had a rash on his face.. When the doc heard that.. she said "no, thats not a sign of strep"... he has allergies, as he also has "shiners".. his face is dry and he is always licking his lips.. so she told me he has (this name is soo funny) ..
Lip Licking Dermatitis.. so I get to tell the preschool today :) They gave him zyrtec, which makes you drowsy.. I told him he would have to take it before he goes to bed, as it makes you sleepy... so last night when I'm getting it ready he asks me "mom, why do you want to make me tired"... (Oh son, if you only knew..hehe)..I told him I want to make you better.. & the medicine only works when your sleeping :)
So, I found a home for 1 kitten.. I was sooo sad when he left .. Little Sunshine.. beautiful yellow tiger long hair.. gorgeous blue eyes.. I have been debating on which one I want (sorry Chris).. oopsie.. anyhow.. I chose Little Champ.. who is a tan tiger long hair.. he is absolutely gorgeous.. huge...Sydney was so sad thats the one she chose.. she told me Champ and Sunshine were twins like her and Christopher and that I had to keep both of them.. she totally gave me the guilt trip..making it even harder! Now, I only have 4 more to find homes for.. a lady emailed me last night about keeping fingers crossed!! The kids & I named them all.. Sunshine, Champ, Cali, Cleo-patra, Gangsta, & Panda..
Today, I have to take Sydney to the doc.. kindergarden checkup.. I cannot imagine they are going to school!!!!!! I'm so excited!!!!! I haven't been this excited for ..well.... like years!!!!!!!! WWWOOOHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOO :) (Sorry, I'm just really looking forward to it!!!)Right now if they were in school, I'd be home for like 1 hour by myself.. no children.. I could take a bath before I went to work and not be interupted 199 times!!!! Imagine all the possibilities :) A quiet breakfast.. coffee w/ Chris.. just FREE for an hour!! EVERYDAY... Ok.. I'm done.. Finally, they can go somewhere for free! WIPPEEE

~~AWWWW ~~

My bro, Michael & Kate

I got an email from my brother's wife, Kate.. & she sent me some wedding pics.. I wish I could have made it to my bro's wedding!!! I miss him!! Congrats to both of you!!

This weekend was pretty laid back and lazy.. just stayed around here and did some yard work!! The kids played with some neighbor kids.. Madison went to Haley's birthday party Saturday.. she had alot of fun.. they had SO many kids, they made us sign in when we got there.. (phone #, address.. etc)..I've never seen that before, but guess its probably a good plan. I need to get on the ball about birthday parties!
Morgan has been working on a project about the Holocaust for several weeks now.. she turned it in and told me this weekend that she got an A+ ... WHOOOHOOO Morgan!!! I'm proud of you kiddo!
This morning it was hard to get moving.. Christopher had a bloody nose.. throw him in the tub and clean up.. didn't get to work until almost 11 ~ thank goodness my work expects me to always be late!! (and they accept my wonderful quality!!).. ha Today when I got in from my route, there was a message to call the daycare.. GREAT! So, I call.. Christopher has a rash around his face.. they say its the sign of strep.. which is going around.. lovely.. So made him a doctor appointment.. Enough already!!
A little over a week till Chris gets home.. I haven't got to talk to him for a while.. or at least it seems like it.. he did email and posted on his blog.. I like hearing his voice though!
Well, have got to help Maddy w/ homework and get supper started before the kids start eating the furniture :)

Friday already !!

Well, this morning Morgan woke me up when she was getting ready to leave.. @@ (where's the coffee!!!)... She was all dressed up IN A DRESS!! .. "Mom, straighten your hair and wear something nice.. and put on makeup!!"... uh ok... Today at school the home-ec. class invited their parents to brunch.. Wow.. gotta get moving!!! Have to bust butt at work today to get there on time.. gotta get the kids to school NOW!!!!
But I was there 20 minutes early..ME.. twenty minutes EARLY!!!! It's amazing it hasn't snowed! :)
I was heading out the door and the phone rang.. it was Chris.. he was heading for the National Park, so I imagine he got to see some elephants, tigers.. etc (Lions, tigers, and Bears..oh my!) We only got to talk for a minute.. long enough for I love you's.. I miss you's... I liked it much better when he was staying at the last place as we could talk on the computer for more extended times.. but it was still nice to hear from him.
Ok, so I take the kids to school.. get to work.. hurry up! Change/ get ready at work.. make it to school.. She was so excited to see me.. I surprised her! The kids seated us.. got our drinks.. served us food.. Talked to us even :) It was very nice and the food was good..
After that, I picked up the kids and went home.. they were in a mood today.. We have just been goofing off around here.. I called to see if Jalen & Jaren wanted to spend the night, so all the kids are in the living room watching Paulie.. hopefully they'll start nodding off soon!! as I am starting to get tired myself :) Gotta play spider solitare 50 more times first though!! I'm addicted to that game!

Busy Busy..

Ok, today is Thur.. Poor Morgan had to get 3 teeth pulled at the Ortho today.. she just gets done being sick.. and Guess What.. your appointment is today.. poor baby!! She hasn't complained too much yet.. so hopefully thats a good sign :) Today she brought home her school letters she received from track.. she was excited and wants the jacket now :) Great job Miss Morgan!
Yesterday I was able to go "home".. I was able to see my daddy!!! I miss him alot, so it was nice to just talk to him.. he had my nephew, Russell.. (the 1st time I had ever seen him) .. the kids played with him and had alot of fun.. (he's 4).. I also got to go have lunch with my best friend, Ruth.. it was nice to have a little break from the kids and to hang out with her as it has been almost a year since I've seen her! The kids loved seeing her...they are always wanting to see "Goofy Roofie" ... ha.(granny named her that long ago)..
Busy schedules, crappy cars and high gas prices... but it's been way to long since I've seen my family and friends..I miss the small town and being able to just drop by to see everyone..
We also went and visited grama of course.. Granny.. she's soooo fun! She gave us our Christmas presents.. as last time I went down, she had lost them.. Morgan got some Mardi Beads (don't want to know how Gram got those :)HA ..Star Wars watches for everyone.. and I got a beautiful suede jacket.. Thanks Gram!!! Christopher has claimed everyone of the watches!! (wait till his dad gets home..ha) The visit was great.. but so so short! I miss being around.. hate having to rush.. The kids enjoyed their "picnic" that gram always has.. cheese twisties... and pop of course :)

Sickness GO Away!!! Shoo!! Sike!! No Wait..

OK enough is enough!! I send the girls to school this morning.. get the twins ready for preschool... write Chris an email.. as I missed talking to him last night :( Go to work.. Finally I can get out of this house and get a little break from the kids :) WRONG!!!!!! Madison's school calls to come pick her up.. stomach hurts.. damn.. She seemed perfectly fine this morning.. Leave work..have to request a day of sick leave.. cover my route, etc..go get her... In the car she says.. "Mom, before we get the twins can we get Taco Bell, I'm starving".. So my "sick" kid ended up just being my "hungry" kid... (thank goodness)...
The rain is relentless and the kids are going crazy from being cooped up.. They are "born".. their term for bored.. HA Madison just asked if she could go to Chloe's house to play.. I told her just came home "sick".. She says, I tricked so you could get off work.. then when she seen my face.. she said "I'm just teasing you mom, my belly really did hurt"... AHHH
I have to get Morgan to her choir concert tonight.. My energy level is running low..... I think I can I think I can...Ok Better now :)
UPDATE On Sickness: Well, Madison ate & actually is complaining yet again about her stomach.. so guess it was legit and she's off the hook :) Anyhow, tomorrow WILL be better!!!!!!!!!! I demand it!!!!!!!!! :) ha

Mom's Day Present :)

Well, I have not been able to post for a couple days, as 3 of the kids were sick.. Morgan had broncitis YUCK.. Christopher and Madison got the flu.. and each missed a couple days of school. Madison misses practice and her game today, as I didn't want to take her around everyone.. just incase :(
I feel like I have cabin fever (as I'm sure they do too).. as we have just been hanging out here.. getting on each others nerves :) Tomorrow is mother's day.. The twins made me beautiful pics at school.. very pretty..Morgan & Madison painted me some pics (althought I don't think I was supposed to see them yet :)
I hope the weather is decent out tomorrow, as I would like to do something outdoors! I got to talk to Chris yesterday for a little bit.. he sounds good.. missing him :(
Well, I must go.. try to find something good for dinner.. YIPPEEEEEE
UPDATE: Mother's Day was nice.. Morgan kept the kids out of my room and I got to sleep until almost 10:30.. WOW Then she brought me breakfast in bed :) WOW (Eggs, bacon, toast).. WOW.. she later made dinner.. set the table.. served everyone.. Thank you Morgan!!!
