My Girls and Jonathon!!!!!

Here all I am not complaining. I just think its stupid for kids to do this stuff but they have to learn one way or another right??

Well last night night Jeff came home at 6:30 and the kids were outside playing by the side of the house. No biggy so when he came in the house I went yelling for our girls. Well in the process Kora had taken her shoes off last night outside. She blames Jonathon. No biggy really so while I was outside his mother calls and asks if he was still down here. I said yes and I also told her I was sending him home. She asks me to walk him down around the corner to see her Halloween Decorations. So I walked him home and went in and talked her for a few minutes and came home.

Well in the process of me being gone for five minutes the girls were in our room with Jeff and Kora was telling him the new game Jonathon had taught them. It was pull your pants down and show your butt. Well of course I get all hyped up about this new game and drag both girls down to Jonathons house to find out what was going on.

Well I guess they were going to blame eachother so when we threatened to keep them apart for two weeks Jonathon came clean about it and admitted it was his idea. He watches his step dad and brother have mooning contests and thought it was funny so he was trying to teach Kora to do it.

On another topic my mom asked what I got the girls to go out in Halloween with tonight and I told her they werent going. She starts in on me telling me what a horrible mother I am and I just get really pissed off at her for her telling me what kind of mother I am. Its my choice if I want the girls going out trick or treating. What really confuses me about Halloween is that all year long you try and tell your kids not to talk to Strangers but then one night a year you send them to strangers doors to ask for candy. I dont think so.

Maybe I am just paranoid but I dont think so. Jeff was brought up not doing it and I was but I understand where he is coming from. I dont mind them not going. I see it as if they want candy we can go get them a bag from the store. I may be a hum bug of a person but I dont believe in it as I did when I was a kid. My mom started in on me about depriving my girls of there childhoods and me not being the person she thought I was.

I am slightly flustered with her right now. I am sorry if she had everything handed to her on a sliver platter. But my girls arent going to be as spoiled as she is and was from her father. I know I sound like a royal bitch but hey that is just how I am.

I gues it just gets me. I am trying to be the best mom I know how and to keep my girls safe. I know that other parents bring there children out tonight but I am not going to be joining them. I am sorry for that one and if any of you think I am a horrible person for not joining I dont blame you really. Maybe I am when it comes to Halloween. I wont be handing out candy tonight either. There goes the real kicker of the night. Now I really sound like a royal bitch. No Halloween for her kids and no Candy for those other children.

I am a good person. I could really hold off on a lot of things with my girls but they get X-mas and B-day Parties and such. So what is one Holiday missed?? I dont see the problem with it. Anyway I just thought I would let you know whats on my mind.

Comercials and Idiot things in life!!!!!

Hi all. I have the TV on and listening to my daily shows I watch. Well this one gets the vote for the most idiotic commercial. I dont know if you all have heard about the deaths from that Gerdisal. Be One Less???? Well according to a blog friend of mine KC. I am not going to link her so you can check her out on my side bar ok. Anyway she did a post awhile back about it and it killing a few girls.

Well anyway I was watching tv and the Commercial comes on and they give what the side affects are but they dont say what it has done to those that passed away. I will not have my girls getting this shot. If the dr says its manditory I will say no its not since my girls arent in public schooling any longer. The schools say that girls from about ages 9-24 need this shot.

No way will I be burying my children before they bury me. I dont care if they have fixed this shot or not.

And we are always hearing about men needing a longer Penis. Yeah right. Or those 3 day period birth controls. What is the problem with dealing with it on your own. I mean come on girls and women here. I mean we were meant to bleed for 4-7 days without chemistry deciding when and how long we bleed. Or if a guy cant get it up I mean its never been dealt with from a Dr. The men have always just dealt with it.

I know I am being blunt but I hate hearing about all this stuff they have out there. Even if I hadnt had my tubes tied after Bri doesnt meant I would be doing any of these special Birth Controls.

Anyway things are good here. Jeff is working another 55 hour week so far. He worked at least 11 hours yesterday and I have no idea about today. Kora did her first page of math by herself today with out me reading the instructions to her. She read them to me and did the problems.

I am so happy for her. Bris counting to ten by herself now too. I hate comparing my girls but that is something Kora did do until she started school.. Bri also has almost her whole alphabet down. She keeps forgetting D when she does the alphabet though. But she does well and she is trying at least.

We are also looking at getting a dog from our Humane Society when we get taxes back this year. They only want $175 for a dog. They nutuer or spade for you so we dont have to worry about it. We need an animal and I think it would do the girls some good to have an animal in there lives. Jeff doesnt like jumpy dogs but we will find one we like. He wants a German Shepard or Black Lab. But we will get what we can find.

We have a big enough yard for a dog and the inside of the house is decent enough. On Nov 7th my dear sweet hubby is going to take me out on a date. They have a show in Appleton in there Arts Performing Center he wants to take me too. Laura is going to take the girls for me and we are going out on a long needed date.

I know tomorrow is Halloween but our girls wont be going out. Jeff has issues with it and I sort of agree with him. Its not as safe as it was when I was a kid and Jeff never got to go when he was a youngster. Anyway. Happy Holloween anyway.

Alright I am done. I will talk to you all later. I need to go find something for lunch.

Oh before I forget I was going to write up this recipe.

1 2lb liquid can of Swanson Broth
1 1 1/2 lb chicken boneless
2 cups of water
1 cup of celery
1 cup carrots
4 boyoun squares.
1 8 oz package egg noodles.

In crock pot or slow cooker cut up chicken and carrots and celery and Swanson Broth and water. Let cook for about 4 hours and then add 4 boyoun cubes. I might have that spelled wrong. Then let that simmer for about another two - three hours. Then add the egg noodles. Let cook for half an hour and eat. Add crackers or what ever you like.

Thanks to WC.

I am really here!!!!!!!!

Hiya all. I am still here. I have been trying to get things back in order while being excited about being back up and running with my friends. I am in the middle of cleaning and trying to get my house back in order but I am also trying to do this.

Friday I called a place by our house that makes customized computers and sells used ones and I found us a Monitor for 20 bucks. Its a 17 inch Monitor. The same size as the one we had and it works ok for the time being.

Then on Saturday we went on a small shopping spree. I got four good books. Will do book reviews on them when I am done. I got them at Goodwill for .49 a piece. I have finished two of the four afghans that need to go to Richard before Nov. 27th. I am so excited about the kids getting them. Here is a peek of my work.

Now me working on one. Kora took this one for me.

Then yesterday we went on a hike in the Wild Life Sanctuary we have here in town. We didnt go see the animals. We went off on the other side of the trails this time. We walked for sometime and both girls were real troopers. Bris foot started hurting half way through the trip but she walked it though. Here are some photo's of our break we took to sit and just enjoy the day.

Pardon my opinion here with this one and the last one is that I look fat here. I dont know if its because of what I am wearing or what but I have been avoiding chips lately and eating healthy snacks like banana's and oranges and such. But I still look fat.

Anyway on our way out of the trails we saw six deer right in front of us but my batteries on my camera had died while trying to show Bri how to take a photo of Kora, Jeff and I so I didnt get a photo of the deer.They were so beautiful to see though. They were not the ones that belonged to the Sanctuary. These were loose deer. The word I want isnt coming to me. Yikes. Anyway enjoy and I will be back tomorrow. Take care.

Nothing New!!!!!!!

Hey just wanted to tell you all I am still here but been busy and havent made my rounds today like I usually do. I have to help a friend get her wedding off the ground and then finish my handful of pen pals and then finish laundry. Then go off and rake the yard or mulch the leaves that are out there. I wouldnt bother with it but we have two huge tree's in the back yard so we get loads of leaves. I promise I will have a better post tomorrow. I wont be as busy.

Our Monitor is on the blink.I dont know when I will be back for now. I am afraid its going to blow up on me so I will shut her down after doing this here. For now we dont have a hundred bucks to replace the monitor. So it might be a while before I get back here. Take care my friends and I will visit when its safe again.

Alrighty back up and running will be back completely Monday My friends. LOL.... Take care and have a wonderful weekend.

A Sunday Afternoon Walk.

Hi all here was our weekend. Saturday Jeff worked and we didnt do a thing and yesterday we took a walk along The Fox River. They built a trail a few years back and we walk so far and then turn around and come back. The trail is used for bikes, roller blades, and walking.

We saw a couple of really cool dogs yesterday. This one had a face as big as a St. Benard. He was just a Yellow Lab though. I was so bored until we went for our walk. I had crocheted all day Saturday and didnt want to spend my Sunday the same way. So here are some photo's.

Here are the girls. I mean its Oct 21st and we are wearing shorts!!!! Really beautiful day. Glad we got out.

Daddy and his girls.

Mommy and her girls. LOL..

Jeff and I. You dont get him to pose for to many photo's and Kora took her first photo yesterday.

It was a wonderful day. I cant complain. My back hurt when we started out but by time we sat back down in the car my aches and pains had went away. I just think I needed the walk yesterday. Sometimes I notice if I walk a bit they tend to go away. When I was 15 I was diagnosed with Scoliosis. Curvature of the spine. And I think it acts up once in a while. More often than not really. So I cant sit still when my back hurts.

Some of you are wondering how my Pen Pal deal is going. Great for that matter. I have been meaning to update that really and keep forgetting. Thanks Ortho for reminding me.

I have all the names out and done except for a handful of them. Richard sent me his book he wrote about himself and his wife. I will do a book review when I am done but if you want a preview here is the name of the book. Jodi, The Greates Love Story Ever Told by Richard M. Brodsky.

I am very pleased and happy I have met him through his foundation. If any of you want to make a donation of any sorts just go to his sight. Its the I think. I will have to look in my e-mail again. I didnt link it this time.

I am so proud that I made some kids a friend in Kenya Africa. I have been busy making four afghans for four 2 year olds in Kenya when Richard and Jodi go at the end of November. They are going to give them to four 2 year olds when they go over for a Marathon. So that is what is going on here. Life is busy like usual. the girls are good as you can see. LOL.. Take care my friends.

My Babies

Hey world. I am still here some where. Its a Friday afternoon already. Yikes where is the day going. Where has the week went really. Its almost November too. Just where has this year went. Anyway a couple of things that I have on my mind today.

My cousin had a baby girl Oct 12th at 8:45 pm. She was 5lbs 11.5 ozs. She has a big brother named Collyn. Her name is Anna Marie. Its good news compared to what I heard on the 7th of Oct. I dont have to rehash that. Anyway that is the good news.

Now here is some thing slightly disturbing really. Well you all may just say its a little girl thing but I dont understand it being an only child really. Maybe some one can explain this to me and make the light come on besides the light that is already there.

As many of you probably already know we have a three bedroom house. Its not a fancy house but its ours. LOL... Anyway I wanted a three bedroom where the girls would have there own space but for some reason they dont want there own space right now. For the last few months they have been wanting to sleep in eachothers bed with eachother so I didnt see anything harm into it until last night when Kora popped up and said she was Bri's best friend.

That made me wonder in what context of the word Best Friend she was using. So I made them sleep in their own beds last night. I havent seen anything different with either of them but it scares me that Kora might be trying something with her little sister.

Ouch this hurts. I had a whole good rant going and lost it. Anyway I was just saying that I think they are having a hard time with it because when they are down at Jonathons house they play in his bedroom with the door shut. I cant stand letting them down there and knowing they are in a bedroom alone with him and the door is shut. They know when they are at home the bedroom doors are not to be shut. I mean if you have two girls or two boys its one thing but not one of each. I dont see the poing in it really.

Anything could happen at that point and kids are curious about eachother and it scares me my girls could be the next victim of the curiousity. Anyway I had other things I had said but dont remember what they were.

I was just mentioning that the girls had taken off on me a few minutes ago. I mean I told them I was going to take a shower and they had to stay in the front yard. Well Kora took it upon herself to take off to Jonathons house. I got out of the shower and I didnt see them and then the phone rang. Laura was on the phone telling me my girls were at her house sitting on her front porch after she told them that Jonathon didnt feel well and didnt want to play. Its the point that Kora took off on her own accord and didnt care what I think. I am not going to ground them as of this minute but I am not happy with her either. They are sitting on the couch right now until I figure out what to do with them exactly.

Other wise things have been quiet here. Life is good to us all. I hope at least. Its suppose to be 68 and sunny tomorrow but I think Jeff has to work tomorrow morning and it drains him when he works Saturday mornings. Then he doesnt feel like doing anything after that. I dont blame him. I mean after a 62 hour week I would be drained also. I mean sure I work hard here at home but not like he does for this job. I mean he has almost gotten crushed more than once by tires. Big Farm Tires.

Oh I promised you all a snip on what is happening to his sister. His sister has that non cancerous tumor I told you all about and she lost her house a month or so ago. Well we just found out also that besides her having this tumor and not working and such she was writing bad checks out and now she is on the run with four kids. Ages 12,6, twins ages 4. Yikes.....

Jeff's mom called and asked if we have heard from her and of course no one has so we are all worried. I dont think the older two are in school because if they were the cops would have found out where her mother is by now. All it takes is going to the school and finding out which classes the older one has and go talk to her. But from what I am understanding she has pulled the kids out of school. I cant believe she is doing this. But she is just making it worse for when they find her and her husband.

Well anyway. I need to get something for lunch and then find out what to do with the girls for taking off on me. Talk soon to all of you. N.

Hi there. I have some venting to do today. You all know that we are home schooling Kora. Well I have been talking to our neighbor down the street. She has been wondering how it works and such. So I have been telling her how it works and she keeps asking the same questions over and over again. Well I only have so much patience for such questions.

Well I feel sorry for her son. I have told you all about her getting custody of him back in early August again. Well anyway he's been having troubles in school and they were considering home schooling him but you have till Oct.15th to get the PI form in so I guess he's not being home schooled but he kept asking me questions and she kept countering my answers with other things like the school wont let her home school because he has special needs and such.

I think its stupid that you would do that to a child. I am sorry but if they are curious you dont counter what the person that is doing the home schooling knows when you know nothing yourself. I have learned alot from my friends here and the links thanks to Monicar.

Kora needed special education in school too but you know what now that we are home schooling her she is doing fine. Like I said yesterday its like pulling teeth sometimes but that is all kids right? I have to say she is doing loads better at home than she would be if she were in the PSS (Public School System). I enjoy learnign with her. She actually did one of her math worksheets by herself this morning without my help. I am so proud of her.

She shamed one of her friends on Sunday. We were coming home and I asked her what 9+9 was and she whipped off the answer before he could even think of the problem and he looked at her like thats not fair. LOL.. It was so funny to see the look on his face. But he's been reading for a year now so he has his strengths and Kora has hers.

Things are good though. Life seems to be back to normal or as normal as life can be with a very busy family. But I suppose I better go find something to eat or else I am going to be sorry later when Jeff comes home. We might go out for a while tonight but it depends on what time he comes home.

They had to fire one of the guys he works with because the guy was addicted to Crack Cocaine. It came back in his Urine test they do. Thankfully they never let him drive until that came back. I cant imagine the law suit they would have had if he would have gotten in an accident. Anyway he has been working up to 12 1/2 hour days to 13 hours a day. Between Monday and Tuesday he had 25 hours. Yes you read that right 25 hours in two days. Yikes huh? I just hope he doesnt wear himself down to bad doing the work he does. So life is hecktick here but we are doing what needs to be done. He comes home to a clean family and a clean house and appreciates it more than some know. Alright I am really going this time where I can go find some lunch. Talk soon to all of you. N.

Annebelle Lee

Annebelle Lee
By Edgar Allen Poe

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNEBELLE LEE.
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea:
But we loved with a love that more than love-
With a love that winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
IN thsi kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud chilling
So that her high-born kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes!-that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my ANNABELLE LEE.

But our love it was stronger by far tahn the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser thand we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Of the beautiful ANNEBELLE LEE.

For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful ANNEBELLE LEE;
And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes
of the beautiful ANNEBELLE LEE.
And so, all teh night-tid, I lie down by the side
Of my darling-my darling-my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.

One of my favorite poems of his. I have a few more in the book I like. I dont know if it was worth what I paid for it. But I love going through certain poems every now and again and this is one of them. Just reading the love he had had for her is amazing. Some say Poe was crazy and had no family but you just never know with writers from this era.

I am ready to pull my hair out of my head. Its raining out today and the girls havent been outside and they are fighting like cats and dogs. I knew it was going to happen but I am ready to strangle both of them. I know its five o clock my time and I am making the girls lay down and rest. I really should have a rest time during the day earlier but havent needed one until recently. I get fustrated easily sometimes and today is one of them. But home schooling is going great for Kora. She can whip numbers off faster than her friends can even think of the problem. Its amazing. Her reading is coming along but slowly.

I have these Book It coupons I keep telling her if she can read two books by the end of the month I will take her out for a girls afternoon and we will have Pizza. But lately those havent even tempted her in reading. Instead of knowing what a word is she guesses on it. She refuses to remember her sight words and has to try and sound them out. But like I said she is getting there.

Anyway enough. I thought you would like my poem. It didnt take that long to type out either. LOL.. Catch you all tomorrow sometime.

Monday, October 15, 2007

Hey There.

Not much new here with us. We never went to the Funeral as you all know already but my dad did call last night and gave me an update on it. He said it was the hardest thing he has ever had to go through with his child. I can just imagine how hard that was on both of them. But anyway I will not dwell on this. Its over and I cant do anything but listen when one of them wants to talk about it and e-mail back and forth when she feels like she needs to vent a little.

The girls are great like usual. Kora is being stubborn on reading a certain book though. Its easy words like the rest but she is just being stubborn. It took her three hours to get through it last night with me sitting right there and if I dont sit right there she doesnt read at all. I am not complaining my friends its just very fustrating with certain books she wants to pick up real well and others its just like pulling teeth out of her head.

Bri is learning slowly how to make her B. Yes she has questioned it so I have been showing her how slowly. She was down stairs last night and Kora had come upstairs to go to the bathroom and Bri was telling a story that most 3 year olds wouldnt tell or couldnt. It was amazing to listen to her sentence structure. She amazes me every day.

Life is good here otherwise. I have a book review to put on the Fall Reading Challenge Blog. I keep forgetting but I am out of light reading material. I have been reading Edgar Allen Poes stories and poems of recent and to me that isnt light reading. LOL... I bought the book on Sale a bout 5 years ago and never read the whole thing. I want some Charles Dickenson.

Well I suppose I have some stuff to do and always cleaning the house. LOL.. I get laundry done on weekends now where Jeff can bring it up for me when he comes up from down stairs. That is the only thing I wish was different with the house. Is that my laundry was on the main floor but I am not going to change that anytime soon.

So I just thought I would give you all an update on whats going on here. I will hopefully have a great post one of these days again. LOL... I have something to say about Jeff' sister but maybe I will let that ride till tomorrow. Its another post really and I hope I can get through to her before she gets hurt or one of the kids do now. Talk later my friends.

Whats been Up This Week.....

Hi there all here is what I have been busy doing. Here is Autums Afghan i am working on. I might need some more yarn for it but not sure yet. I will have to wait and see. I just doubled on of my patterns to get it an adult size. Maybe to big but hey it will last for a long time and keep her warm for a very long time. LOL...

Here's me getting dunked and looking scared shitless and other things going through my mind. I may have gotten dunked but my language is still the same. I might change after a while but I havent changed in that manner as of yet. LOL.. I like myself the way I am and I hope everyone else does too.

Here are the girls of this morning in Kora's room with books. They love looking at books and Kora is getting better at trying to read them. She has to be able to read two books we brought home from the library by the Oct 29th where she can have one of her book it coupons. I told her that if she can read two books by then I will make sure Jeff gives me enough money to take us girls out for lunch at Pizza Hut at the end of the month.

The ones I wanted to add wouldnt let me. Oh well. If I ever get some photo's of them off my camera I will post them. But for now Oh well. It happens. My girls are complaining they are hungry. So off to feed the hungry babes. Hope you all have a great weekend if you have a spare moment tomorrow about 11 am send up a farewell wish for my nephew and his parents please. I havent talked to Maria but I have talked to Nate as I have said before. I guess she is really depressed and I hope she can get out of it soon for herself. And Nate. They need eachother right now and with her being depressed they cant help themselves get through this. Anyway if you could do that it would mean the world to me. Thanks my friends and enjoy your weekend. I am going to find something to do tomorrow. I have no idea what we are doing yet. Jeff has to work tomorrow morning that is part of why we cant go to the Funeral and I dont drive that far by myself. So anyway again. Monday my friends unless I have a few moments tomorrow morning before Jeff comes home from work. We might go to the Sanctuary and go for a hike. Not sure yet. Will let you all know what we did on Monday sometime. N.

7 Things Tag

I got tagged by Zombie. I need to say seven things about me and explain them a little. Well lets start then.

1. Lets see here. My love of my life is hard working and I love him for that. He works up to 65 hours a week to keep me at home with our girls and we can home school the girls. He does just about anything to make me happy.

2. I love my girls more than life itself and my dear sweet hubby. I know like Zombie said about his wife that is the first thing I think I about when I wake up with him to make his lunch before where he can go to work.

3. I love to travel and hope to go to a few different countries some day. I want to go to France, Finland and a few other places. I have said this before in a few posts and sorry for rehashing it.

4. I have 6 nieces and 4 nephews on Jeffs side of the family and then I would have had two nephews on my side of the family but as you all know I just lost one. The funeral is on Saturday and I dont have the cash to go. It sucks.

5. We have lived in our house for one year Sept 25th. Its a wonder how we have made it with the problems we had back in Feb with the ceiling and I hope we can make it many more years.

6. As you all know I love to crochet and I have been in the process of making a blanket for Pastor Frasers daughter. He wanted me to make a bigger blanket for his daughter out of my baby afghan book I have done. So I have started it and its biminy blue, torquoise and Dark Navy Blue. Its just beautiful.

7. You all know I have been having a hard time with God and religion well last night I took the plunge into the water. I decided it was time to not care what people think of me anymore and I went for it. When I came back up out of the water I felt like a ton of bricks have been taken off my shoulders and I feel so light right now. I am glad I did it.

Now I am suppose to tag seven people. I am not so sure whose done this and who will so lets see here.








And who ever else wants to do it go ahead...

UpDate on My Brother

Hey there. I got a call from my brother today. He had asked me if dad called me and told me what happened. I said yes and he was grateful to have someone telling us. I feel so bad for them. He kept telling me he had so much to do and not wanting to do it.

I cant imagine what they are going through but when Nate called I had to ask them what they had. It was a boy. I didnt feel they needed me asking what went wrong, he just needed an ear to listen to him so that is what I did was listen to him. He said the hardest part was going home with an empty carseat int he back seat and then walking into the house and walking past baby's room and no baby.

I mean I dont think I could handle getting everything ready and then boom not having my girls. I dont know if its right but I have been crying for them the last few days. Its hard to know that I will never hold my nephew in my arms or see him laugh and get photo's of him laughing. It just feels hollow to know that really.

I am such a baby anyway when people pass away. I have such a great soft heart it hurts. Well just thought I would keep you updated on this.If I find out what happened I will give another update on this. Life is good here otherwise.

I have made my rounds and I am here through out the day.

I am Still Around Somewhere......

Here are some random pix of the girls. I hadnt posted them in a while I need to get some new ones of them. One thing I havent taken is a while is pix of anything. Nothing worth taking lately. We had a beautiful sunset on Saturday I wish I would have had my camer but by time I got outside the pink sky was gone. Oh well. It happens. Well enjoy and I will make my rounds later on today.

Hi all. Sorry I havent been around much lately. I am still here. I am turning my day around a bit here.. I have to take Kora to the Dentist here in a bit. Just a routine checkup nothing more. She is going to finally get her sealant for her back two teeth today. Another bill until he gets us on his dental insurance but hey what can I say. Its worth the money to make sure she keeps her teeth.

I have been working with Bri's planters wort the last few days and its going down with the pads I got from the Pharmacist. She was really nice about it too. Bri is having troubles with it and she hates me touching it because it hurts esp after there baths when I am suppose to dry her foot thoroughly and then put the pad and then a bandaide on it. Poor baby.

I guess I am the bearer of bad news. No I am not stopping blogging. I got a call from my dad Saturday evening. He says my brother and his wife had the baby. Well I was excited and asked him what they had and how big and such and before I could finish my rapid fire of questions he told me they lost it. My brother was so distraught that my dad couldnt even ask what they had or how big. I mean I just got an e-mail from Maria a week ago and everything was fine with her and baby and now this. I dont understand it completely. I held together until I got off the phone with my dad and then I cried. I cried for them.

I cant imagine losing a baby like that. Not that far along at least. I mean its one thing to miscarry early on but to lose a baby after nine months and then be forced to deliver it and everything. Yikes... Well when they are ready to talk to me about it I will find out what they had and keep you posted on it. Sad news...

On a better note things are going better here. We heard from Jeff's mom this weekend. She wants us to go out to there new place for Thanksgivig and then they want to come here for X-mas or around that time. Not sure yet. We will only be able to go out to his mom's house for Thanksgiving day and leave that same day because Jeff has to work that Friday. It makes no sense at all. Most of his customers are not open anyway but hey.

To all my Candian friends out there I forgot about it being your Thanksgiving. Hope it was a good one and you enjoyed your turkey or what ever you make. LOL....

Jeff and I are getting along alot better than we were two weeks ago. Just an update on that. We are really talking again. But right after wards he was so snippy.. The girls are still sleeping and I need a shower. LOL... Not that you really needed to know that.

I have so much to do today and its hot outside. Its going to be another 80 degree day if not hotter. Its Oct and it feels like late August. But the longer its stays warmer the shorter we have to have our heat on for winter though. So I am not really complaining.

Take care all and I will be back later this afternoon to make my rounds in between cleaning like usual. I have so much to do and it seems since we bought the house I have more time. LOL... I know it sounds funny.. But its the truth. Talk later N.

My Project!!!!!!

Hey world.... I have some news on my Project I am working on.You all know I am working on this AIDS pen pal thing for a bout two weeks now. Well I have most of the ones R has sent me and I have a few more to go. I have to figure out whose getting what Pen Pal now. I have finished e-mailing the people that were already hooked up that his daughter had finished before she abandoned him...

Well anyway some news on this one I will not indulge on private information he has given Jeff and I but I will say he is a very brave man dealing with what he deals with every day. R if you read this I will not post anything personnal you have told me or Jeff about yourself alright.

Well off on another type of tangent here. Laura and I were talking the other night about her son Matthew and talking about certain pills that he needs. He is ADHD. But with the way the Medical System works here in WI they are having troubles transferring his Medical records to the drs and getting him on MA because his grandparents had another insurance for him. Its a mess for her and very stressful. I feel sorry for her really.

Matthew has been having problems and he needs his meds. He has been acting out and just being a bully but she doesnet know what to do right now. She has the school looking into some help for her and such. So lets hope and pray that it goes through soon for her. Anyway we are all good here on the other hand.

The girls are doing great. Kora did something Sunday that we werent happy about though.. I had asked her where Bri was and she said at Laura's house. I told her to go get Bri and bring her home. Well Kora had been down at Laura's playing football with the boys and came home and left her sister down there so Laura brought Bri in the house where she wouldnt get roughed up by the boys and then Bri saw Norm with a drink and said she was thirsty so Laura gave her a drink and some Bear Bear cookie things... Well Kora had went down and told Bri she had to come home and was really rude about it. Well in the process Kora was taking handfuls of Bri's snack without asking Bri first and she was just being a total brat. I wanted to use another word there but wont.

Well I guess after Kora ate most of Bri's snack she literally pulled Bri off Laura's couch and out the door. Bri dropped her juice but Laura had given Kora one because felt that it wasnt fair that Bri got one and Kora didnt. Well when Kora got home she lost her juice because she made Bri drop hers on the way home. And Kora is grounded to the house until Sunday. She isnt happy about it but that is what happens in our house hold when you treat your sister like that. Its bull shit that she was doing that. She didnt have to be so mean to poor Bri. Well anyway we have new neighbors again. The ones I was complaining about a few months ago bought a house and broke there lease and moved.

Well I guess from what Laura told Jeff last night these new neighbors arent any better. They had there stereo turned up way high last night and everything Laura has on her walls was vibrating. I hate neighbors like that. I am so glad we arent renting anymore. Well I suppose. I need to see what I have left for pen pals to match up for R. I have a few left. I have noticed there are more African pen pals than there are American so if one of you wants to do a good charitable chore let me know and I will see what I can do for you. Hammer you have kids that might enjoy doing this, Any one else is welcome. I will have to see how many children I have and adults. Well anyway talk to you all soon. I just made rounds so enjoy your afternoon. N.

Hi All

Hi there. I havent been around alot lately. I have been busy trying to get this Aids thing off the ground for Richard the founder and President of the Link below. On my last post on Friday I think it was.

Also I have been trying to find myself. You are all asking finding yourself. I mean spiritually. I think I have found myself finally and with a lot of talking to Pastor Frasers wife and Pastor himself even though he's on vacation he is there for me. I have been telling him how I feel and we have been working through this disconnection feeling I have been having and I think I have finally found myself.

I wont go into religion now but that is all I have to say about it. The girls are doing good. They are growing like weeds. I have a plan on going to Milwaukee with Laura sometime in the next few weeks to go get some clothes one of her friends have some clothes for Bri. We will take the girls since her boys are in school and go and come back the same day. I am looking forward to that. Anyway. Things in life are going good here again.

Jeff didnt work Saturday but has next Saturday. That is fine we got some bill paid on Saturday instead of him working and then not feeling like going out now. Well I suppose. Kora got her library card on Saturday but I had to go Friday and see why she hadnt recieved it yet. She didnt get it because I have an outstanding balance and then the librarian said if Jeff went in with her to get the card she could get it. So Saturday she got her very own library card. She was so happy. I am showing her respoinsibility with books now. Taking care of them and such. All parents know what I amd going through with that.

Well I suppose I should go. Sorry that I havent had much to say lately but I am getting there again. I have a post but think it will wait till tomorrow but if you dont mind reading a real long post today I can post it I guess.

I realized last week that we have just celebrated our first year in the house. Sept 25th was our closing date last year and we refinanced in July of 07. So one year in the house. You know I look outside and realize fall is here again already.

My front yard is all full of leaves that I cant go rake because its raining again today. I will have to wait till it stops in a few days. The back yard hasnt started falling yet with leaves so that is going to have to wait for amonth or so. LOL.. No really a few weeks. Its suppose to be in the 70's this week and then cool off on Sunday again.

Well I suppose now I will go and catch you all later. Have a great day and talk to you all soon. N.

Hey World!!!!!!!!

New posts under this one until October 1,2007... Thanks all

Hi there. I was watching TV last night. Something I havent done in ages by myself. I sent the girls down stairs to the basement to spend time with Jeff while he played his games and I sat and watched TV. I was waiting for Cold Case to come on so I turned into Home Makeover. They were remaking a Camp for kids with HIV/AIDES. It upset me to see so many kids with it or know some that has it.

You know they have adopt a solider out there for this war that we can write to and such. But I have never heard of Adopt a Kid with Aides and give them some one to write to and just have a set of eyes for them to read and laugh with. I would do it in a heartbeat if I could just find a way to do it.

Most people think they are going to get Aides by touching that person. No way you wont. You will get it if you have sex, or if you touch an open cut to an open cut. So that means no Blood brothers and sisters that kids like to play. Then on the show they went through and redid the mothers actual house also for her. They made the kids rooms the way they wanted them and it was soo coool... I wish those you would have seen it. I mean they made her a special study just for her meaning the mother and that. She is going to school and needed a few things and they got them for her.

I have been inspired alot lately on certain things. I havent heard back from Hugs from Home yet on Adopting a Solider but I hope they will find time soon to contact me or what not. Now this has inspired me to think of a way to do this. I love children and adults all the same. I mean just because some one is sick doesnt mean we have to be rude or or what not to them. If any of you have any suggestions for this I would gladly take them on how to get this off the ground.

Now on to my weekend. Jeff has been working really hard lately and has decided to work all Saturdays for the next two months to get us caught up so we arent doing much on our weekends. He is working Monday through Saturday and then only has Sundays off really. Well half days on Saturday but still. I dont blame him one bit really.

The girls are doing great. Kora really likes that link that Ortho sent me. She is trying to read more difficult books on there now. She has went through the easy books on sounding out the words but what we are doing is going back through those books and I am having her read those books to me before she clicks on a word. If she doesnt remember a word I am making her sound out the word first and if she doesnt understand what it is sounding it out yet then I let her click on the words.

I have been busy here. Our back yard needs to be mowed again but I have been lazy on doing it here. Its hot and muggy again for another few days so I will just let it go for now.

We have a orange colored cat living in our shed in the back yard. I have warned all the neighbor kids if I catch them chasing it I am calling the cops on it. I have been feeding it and giving it water. I just hope with in the next month or so it will trust me enough to come to me when it sees me. Its only a baby people. I refuse to call the Humane Society after what they did to Laura's dog. They put him to sleep without telling her first. She had the option of taking him back and trying ot give him away but they didnt and said there staff was afraid of him. OH well enough of that.

That is whats going on here. My sister in law that is due next month is having problems so she is on bedrest and they think she is going to have the baby early. But in this day and age the baby will be fine. They have so much to make sure that at 36 weeks along baby is healty and good to go. Most can even go home shortly after being born if there lungs are strong enough.

Ok. Need to go vacuum at least. I got my mopping and sweeping done yesterday and such. Have a great day my friends.

Ok this wont let me put this up top for some reason. I was just going to say I am leaving this up until the first of October. If any of you have suggestions for me thanks. I would gladly take them to start this idea going.
