Going to Be Lack of Posts Now My Friends...

Hey all I have some good news for you. I am going back to work tomorrow. I got the job. I start tomorrow with Orientation and then my real job starts on Monday. After our little vacation to Rice Lake. Yayyyy. I am going to be making some money doing this and if I make a sale I get a bonus but I wont be doing sales. Just setting up the display and taking it down. Pretty cool huh??? Well I will be lacking in visiting and such but I will have Sundays to visit and keep you all posted on whats going on in my life. That is if Jeff will give me the computer for a while... LOL..

No we share really. I think at this point he will want to put internet on the computer down stairs. I dont blame him. But I will miss you all but I also want the new house. I am doing this where we can better ourselves. WE were told to wait a year or so for the new house. So we are going to fix this one up and go for it. in a year or so. Life is changing so quickly for me. And my family.

I am slightly suprised I got the job but the guy that interviewed me on Friday really liked me. There was somethign about me that he liked and that is good right??? LOL... Well I have to go feed my girls and myself. I havent been able to eat yet today because of nerves. Well now that part of my day is done I need to find out if Laura can take the girls until I find someone to take them here in my home.

I dont want her taking them longer than neccessary. No way. Ok I am off to eat some breakfast. Talk soon.

Is It Almost May Or November.....

Hi there. It stormed like crazy last night with lightening and thunder and lots of rain and wind. Some places got tornadoes but we were lucky here in Green Bay. But other places werent so lucky. We had a branch break off the tree out in front of the house last night. It wasnt very big but still. A tree almost broke off because of the high winds outside our house also. Scary stuff. We decided it was safer to stay in the livingroom until they blew the sirens where we could keep an eye on the tv last night. They were getting updated reports quite quickly and it was just scary to see them come in so quickly.

But now today its cold and it was snowing a little while ago and its windy like it would be when its just getting to be winter time. You know a good blog friend said last year that it was cold where she lives. Well most of you know La Cremiere AKA Helene... She said it was really cold in London last year. Well guess what I think its going to be chilly here this year. Just the way this year is starting out. It doesnt want to warm up here. I mean sure we had some 70 degree days but now this and snow. Snow next weekend because of the front that is coming through. Yikes. Brrrr... I am glad I havent put all of our winter gear away yet. I mean I have them in the closet but I havent done away with any of them yet. Bri's winter jacket is getting to small so I need to replace that this coming fall.

Update on my job interview and thank you all for wishing me good luck. I have to call them back on Monday. If I get hired I will be working for a place that sets up appts for Kirby. I will be taking things in and setting them up and telling about the product but not doing any sales. If I by chance get a sale after the manager comes in after me I get a bonus on this job. They would like to see us work from 9Am. to 9 PM. But with the girls and home schooling there is no way I can work that many hours in one day. but I am going to try my best to get what needs doing done ok. I will have to find time to keep you all posted on how we are doing here and such. I may not even get the job but I have plans for that also. But that is enough for today. I made rounds. I know its a Saturday and I made rounds. Jeff had to work this morning and then this afternoon I have to take Laura's oldest son to his first baseball practice since she isnt in town. I told her I would help her a little bit.

We brought Snowy home yesterday. she is so adorable. I have photo's but I think you will get tired of seeing her so I wont post any today. Maybe on Monday. She is sleeping right and being a good baby. she hasnt had an accident either yet. Yayy for her... She has a slight eye infection from one of Laura's bigger cats getting into a fight with her. The mommy cat of Snowy's mommy got mean with her and caught her eye. I am giving her meds for her eye but I dont think its doing anything. Poor baby. If its not better on Monday Laura said she would take her in for me since she was still at her house when this happened. She let me take her because she isnt home this weekend and wanted some one to keep an eye on her. Sorry for the PUN... But ok. enough. Talk to you all Monday then. Tweets..

Got this one from my mom a little while ago.

How to do a cold wax hair removal???

All hair removal methods have tricked women with their promises of easy, painless removal - The Epilady, scissors, razors, Nair and now... the wax.

Read on..........

My night began as any other normal weeknight. Come home, fix dinner, and play with the kids. I then had the thought that would ring painfully in my mind for the next few hours: 'Maybe I should pull the waxing kit out of the medicine cabinet. So I headed to the site of my demise: the bathroom. It was one of those 'cold wax' kits. No melting a clump of hot wax, you just rub the strips together in your hand, they get warm and you peel them apart and press them to your; leg ( or wherever else) and you pull the hair right off.

No muss, no fuss. How hard can it be? I mean, I'm not a genius, but I am mechanically inclined enough to figure this out.


So I pull one of the thin strips out. Its two strips facing each other stuck together. Instead of rubbing them together, my genius kicks in so I get out the hair dryer and heat it to 1000 degrees. ('Cold wax, yeah...right!') I lay the strip across my thigh. Hold the skin around it tight and pull. It works!

OK, so it wasn't the best feeling, but it wasn't too bad. I can do this! Hair removal no longer eludes me! I am She-rah, fighter of all wayward body hair and maker of smooth skin extraordinaire.

With my next wax strip I move north. After checking on the kids, I sneak back into the bathroom, for the ultimate hair fighting championship. I drop my panties and place one foot on the toilet ..

Using the same procedure, I apply the wax strip across the right side of my bikini line, covering the right half of my hoo-ha and stretching down to the inside of my butt cheek (it was a long strip) I inhale deeply and brace myself. RRRRIIIPPP!!!!

I'm blind!!! Blinded from pain!!!!..... OH MY GAWD!!!!!!!!! Vision returning, I notice that I've only managed to pull off half the strip. CRAP! Another deep breath and RIPP! Everything is spinning and spotted. I think I may pass out... must stay conscious... must stay conscious. Do I hear crashing drums??? Breathe, breathe... OK, back to normal.

I want to see my trophy - a wax covered strip, the one that has caused me so much pain, with my hairy pelt sticking to it. I want to revel in the glory that is my triumph over body hair. I hold up the strip!

There's no hair on it. Where is the hair??? WHERE IS THE WAX???

Slowly I ease my head down, foot still perched on the toilet. I see the hair. The hair that should be on the strip... it's not!

I touch. I am touching wax.

I run my fingers over the most sensitive part of my body, which is now covered in cold wax and matted hair. Then I make the next BIG mistake... remember my foot is still propped up on the toilet?

I know I need to do something. So I put my foot down.


I penguin walk around the bathroom trying to figure out what to do and think to myself 'Please don't let me get the urge to poop. My head may pop off!' What can I do to melt the wax?

Hot water!! Hot water melts wax!! I'll run the hottest water I can stand into the bathtub, get in, immerse the wax-covered bits and the wax should melt and I can gently wipe it off, right???


I get in the tub - the water is slightly hotter than that used to torture prisoners of war or sterilize surgical equipment, I sit. Now, the only thing worse than having your nether regions glued together, is having them glued together and then glued to the bottom of the tub... in scalding hot w ater.
Which, by the way, doesn't melt cold wax.

So, now I'm stuck to the bottom of the tub as though I had cemented myself to the porcelain!! God bless the man who had convinced me a few months ago to have a phone put in the bathroom!!!!!

I call my friend, thinking surely she has waxed before and has some secret of how to get me undone. It's a very good conversation starter...... 'So, my butt and hoo-ha are glued together to the bottom of the tub!'

There is a slight pause. She doesn't know any secret tricks for removal but she does try to hide her laughter from me. She wants to know exactly where the wax is located, 'Are we talking cheeks or hole or hoo-ha?'

She's laughing out loud by now... I can hear her. I give her the rundown and she suggests I call the number on the side of the box. YEAH!!!!! Right!! I s hould be the joke of someone else's night.

While we go through various solutions. I resort to trying to scrape the wax off with a razor. Nothing feels better than to have your girlie goodies covered in hot wax, glued shut, stuck to the tub in super hot water and then dry-shaving the sticky wax off!!

By now the brain is not working, dignity has taken a major hike and I'm pretty sure I'm going to need Post-Trau matic Stress counseling for this event. My friend is still talking with me when I finally see my saving grace.... the lotion they give you to remove the excess wax.

What do I really have to lose at this point? I rub some on and.... OH MY GOD!!!!!!!

The scream probably woke the kids and scared the dickens out of my friend. Its sooo painful, but I really don't care. 'IT WORKS! ! It works!!' I get a hearty congratulation from my friend and she hangs up.

I successfully remove the remainder of the wax and then notice to my grief and despair....


So I recklessly shave it off. Heck, I'm numb by now. Nothing hurts. I could have amputated my own leg at this point.

Next week I'm going to try hair color......

Conversations at Home and Going Ons...

Hi there all. Well we have a slight change of plans for going home. We arent going camping after all. Its suppose to rain on Friday May 2nd and then Snow on Saturday May 3rd so I have my mom looking for an empty motel room for us and then if nothing else we will stay with them but only if they cant find a room. Jeff and I like our privacy and we dont get much of that staying with my parents in there one bedroom home. I know and understand they dont need much more room than that. But its still very uncomfortable staying with them There isnt alot of room to move around and esp with us coming and going all day long. When we do stay with them she tends to think she can hog us and doesnt want us to go places and then when we come back she gets mad at me and part of its her damned dog.

She says she will put Scooby in her cage but then half way through the night she will figure Scooby needs to run a bit and Jeff gets mad and then we have a fight. Its not the best arrangements but I suppose.

I lost my first post for today. It was long and good. Jeff and I were talking about this the other night and then I got and e-mail from Courtney with some funny things on it. Well this is about Ridolin. I hope its spelled right. Well most of you should get the idea of what I mean. LOL..

Jeff and I were talking about kids being all hyper and such. I am not going in the direction I was going with the first post ok.. I mean sure Kora is hyper but she is a kid. She needs to run the energy off from being in the house all day long and the cold winter such. Not in a house with being given pills and being a Zombie and such. She doesnt care for TV or video games to be honest with you. She would rather be outside with her bike and running around the house. When they are in the house they prefer to play in there bedrooms which dont have TV's and video games.

I heard on TV the other day. Our local news for that matter that kids that are taking Meds for being ADHD or something in that form need to have an EKG to make sure that they need those meds or else they could die or have heart problems later on in life.

I had used Jonathon as a case I know that isnt sure he really needs meds but he has been on them since he as small. I have heard that they cant do a good testing for a child needing meds for ADHD until they are seven or older anyway. I watch way to much tv sometimes.

But what I do know and Jeff agree's with me totally is the girls may be hyper but I will never put them on pills or meds. They are happy when I go out and give them half an hour of attention or so. All they want is my attention. Sure why not. I can give them half an hour at a time while cleaning. Sweep and mop the kitchen. While waiting for the kitchen and hallway to dry go outside and watch them ride there bikes or just goof around in the front yard.

That is all they ask of me right now. Then they are happy. Kids now adays are being put on so many different meds because parents cant give them the attention they need. I am not saying its not a legitimate cause but some kids do have an electro magnetic disorder where they need the meds but have them tested when its time not before and have a child put on meds before you know for sure. It just gets me royally there are some many children out there that dont need it but just as many that do that arent on it.

Anyway I have some good news for you all but I am not suppose to say anything until we find out for sure but maybe I can give you a glimpse of what we are looking at doing. We found out that we can get a quarter of an acre piece of land with a new house on it for 150,000 dollars. We are going to talk to the mortgage guy tomorrow. He is coming to our house to talk to us. He said that is fine. We are going to go through numbers and see what goes down. But we have a few things we want to do to this house before selling it but we want to know what we need to do before going ahead with the new one. Pretty cool huh??? LOL.. I dont want to get to excited about it but its hard not to really. Life is looking up for us and I hope this goes through. We have a fence to put up, we have a small area in the basement to fix. Some of the flooring near the wall needs to be recaulked. I think that is spelled right also. We have to fix some of the driveway going into the garage. its not even. But then I think we are ready to sell. Well we maybe ready now. But I still have my interview tomorrow for a job. I will have more information tomorrow afternoon to tell you all about. Well enough for now. I made rounds earlier. Talk soon.

UPDATE We have decided not to go home right now. We have the money but we dont want to stay with my folks or family and we wanted to try camping so we are going to wait till august or early September to go home. We have decided to go to my dads house instead and stay at a motel out there for the night and spend next Saturday with him.

Again Thanks WC. with also They Named It What???????

One more photo of me and the new addition. My mom saw this photo and fell in love with our little new girl Snowy R. I wanted to keep her home that night. I had a hard time bringing her back down to Laura's house but with our trip home I didnt want to leave her for a few days being so little and not trusting Laura with a key to my house I am leaving her down at Laura's until we come home from Minnesota on May 4th. Well I will go get her on May 5th because we will be home late on May 4th. Well enough. Talk soon. I made rounds already today so enjoy today's post.

These came in an e-mail from my mom and dad I thought you all might like them. Enjoy... I do have a sick sense of humor sometimes. I thought they were cute.

You Act Like You Are 23 Years Old

You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel like an adult, and you're optimistic about life.

You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

You're still figuring out your place in the world and how you want your life to shape up.

The world is full of possibilities, and you can't wait to explore many of them.

A Mixed Post Today...

Ok I am to pick several non blogging websites I visit a lot. But to be honest I dont visit alot of none blogging websites so WC was nice enough to accomadate me by saying I could use five or so blogs that I visit each day. Or quite a lot in a week. Then I am also going throw in my photo's of Sunday's walk. Two posts in one today. I promised photos so that is what I am going to throw in here today...

1) I am going to start with The Healing Room. I dont remember what got me reading her blog but she has some great views. She puts things up about her family and this book she got me to buy. She suggested I buy it I should say.

2) I am also going to put my Myspace page down. I visit that daily or almost daily because that is how I keep in contact with an old friend and my new siblings I told you all about right after the new year. I am going to meet Ken's son sometime in July. They are coming up from Flint MI from her families reunion and then going to come visit us for the day and leave. And I keep in contact with Ken's daughter there also. She wants to meet up in Chicago sometime this summer.

This photo here you should be able to click on and read what it says. I think I got close enough for that. I hope so at least. It came off our walk. Very intersting.

3) Squirl she always has something very beautiful put up on her blog. I love looking at her flowers and getting advice from her on what to plant and what certain plants are if I dont know what they are from her. I would love trying to plant some of the things that she has except for I have to many tree's in our yard. To much shade.

This is where we stopped to hear the frogs but couldnt see them. There were probably thinking those stupid humans we are right here and they cant see us... LOL..

Should be able to click on this one too and read what it says. I am just hoping I got close enough to get the words clear enough.

4) Reds Page always has something witty about her Asterisks journey's some place since I wont be traveling anytime soon. This is my way of traveling and seeing other places through there eyes and explainations of how things went down. Enjoy.

Jeff and I here. Dont you think Kora is becoming quite a little photographer?? She does quite well. Still havent gotten Bri to take a good photo yet.

Ok I am not going to get the rest of my photo's up loaded on here today.i am having a hell of a time uploading photo's lately. but enjoy what I did upload please. I will try to get the rest of them up tomorrow.

Some more news is I may have less time to blog because I am looking at going back to work. I have filled out an application but waiting for them to call me back tomorrow when they check there web page. I will be going in for an interview and then maybe getting a job right away. But lets hope so at least. We need some extra cash to do some home repairs and then for our big suprise I am wanting to talk about but promised Jeff I would keep my mouth shut until we get all the details. Talk soon.

I just had to add this to the bottom of this post. I just got it in an e-mail from my parents.

Presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton, Barack
Obama, and John Edwards were flying to a convention.

Barack looked at Hillary, chuckled and said, 'You know, I could
throw a $1,000 bill out of the window right now and make somebody
very happy.'

Hillary shrugged her shoulders and replied, I could throw ten
$100 bills out of the window and make ten people very happy.'

John added, 'That being the case, I could throw one hundred
$10 bills out of the window and make a hundred people very happy.'

Hearing their exchange, the pilot rolled his eyes and said to
his co-pilot, 'Such big-shots back there'. I could throw all of
them out of the window and make 156 million people very happy.'

If you're one of those 156 million, please forward this

A Sunday Hike...

Hey y'alll... LOL.. Ok. Bad joke.. Anyway Jeff and I and the girls went for a hike in this new park we found. Its beautiful. You can camp out there when the camp ground is open and you can walk the trails. Its just beautiful. There are ponds and places to just sit and listen.

Well we cant camp out there right now but soon. Its to wet yet in area's so they arent opening the camp ground for another month or so. But we did walk the trails. It was awsome. We heard a Woodpecker, and some frogs. We couldnt see the frogs to see what they were. But it was awsome to walk through this wild life and just listen.

I thought I heard some woods breaking under feet but we never saw what it was. Jeff heard a few things also. Life in our house hold seems so busy always doing thing like this. We walked about 4 miles yesterday. Yes I know most people would ask if the girls made it. They did and we also had a picnic at the tables they had put out since we left on the trails. Very quiet out there. I would put up a link if I could just remember what it was called. I havent put the pix into the computer yet from our walk so you all are just going to have to wait for those.

But Kora is becoming quite the little picture taker. She does quite well for her age really.

I was showing Brianna how to do some of her letters for her name and and she does quite well with them. They are legible for her age. Most kids wouldnt even know how to do it. I was telling her or instructing her how to make a N and she was doing it without a copy of it. She was following what I was saying by listening. Then we played pick up sticks with Kora.

Then last night I helped Brianna play the bubble game they got for X-mas with Kora. I would move the piece but make bri count. Kora got fustrated because she didnt want to take turns. Or if she had an extra turn she would just dawdle. I am teaching them slowly but sometimes I wonder why I even try.

I am getting our kitty when we come home May 5th. Snowy is 100% a female cat. That is ok. I have litter for her already and a big bag of kitty food. The girls are so excited about having her. So am I really. Jeff said over the weekend that he cant wait to see what we do with her. He means how much cleaner the house will have to be and teaching her not to climb on things. But I know you can do that already. I have seen it done. Esp with getting her as a kitten. I dont mean abusing her to make her learn either. There are ways to keep them from climbing on things you dont want them on.

Jeff finally remembered to order my bag for my shampooer. The plastic bag inside got ripped that time when I mentioned a while back and we finally remembered to order it. I am not telling Laura I fixed it. No way.... Then when the bag gets here I am going to be busy doing the livingroom and maybe chaning it around again. I love moving the furniture around and getting the whole livingroom clean when I shampoo. The only thing that I dont move myself is the TV. I think this time I may have Jeff help me move the tv to get under it. I havent shampooed under it since we moved in.

Other news but I want to wait on that till I get an answer from Jeff and see what information he got from our mortgage guy. Because I dont want to get to excited and then find out we cant do it. Well anyway that is it for today. Talk soon. Made rounds already so have a wonderful day.

its 67 F and sunny today so after mopping I am out the door to enjoy the weather with the girls.

Nothing Important...

Hi there all. I was just listening to the girls playing. Whose idea was it for us to home school?? LOL.. No really they aren't that bad. I love having them both home with me. It gives my day flavor really.

You know I am so proud of Kora. I have her reading a book she got for X-mas from a blog friend. Its a chapter book. She is on chapter 4 already. She reads it out loud in case she has troubles with the words and I can help her but she hasn't needed any help yet. I have read the book to both of them but now I am making her read the book on her own. She finished her math book early. That was my fault not realizing that I could have spread the math out a bit more. LOL.. Silly me. Oh well we are going to do review for the rest of the year and then I am thinking about showing her the basic multiplication table.

Sometimes they play so loudly and its raining out so I cant tell them to go play outside for a bit. I have noticed if they get there outside time they dont play as loudly in the house when they come in. I may see about shipping them outside for a bit here in a while. They need some air. So do I but not sure yet.I have laundry to do today. I was holding off till Monday but decided today is the best day to do it.

Life is a box of chocolates. Oh chocolates. I have a sweet tooth today. Maybe I will take some change and go get a chocolate bar from the gas station three houses down from our house.. Yummie. sounds good. LOL.. I am naughty with our change sometimes..

I am rambling again and I am sorry. I am going to have Jeff pull out the tent this weekend from under the pool and have to repack the tent where it will fit in its case easier than it is right now. I might even put it up to get the grass out of it from last summer or just might leave it. Not sure yet.. LOL.. I am so lookig forward to our trip. On the Road Again keeps popping into my head for some dang reason.

My real dad called yesterday and asked if Ham on the Grill would be ok. I said that should be fine. Ken tried it once but it didnt cook. It was raw and gross. But for some reason my real dad can cook things better than Ken can sometimes. Not all the time but sometimes.

Well I need to go start laundry. I will catch you all later. Tweets.

Thanks WC Again..

The Seven Deadly Sins Quiz on

Just wishing. I could use some extra cash and wish I could sell a few of my afghans I have posted on my crafting blog... We could use the cash but I know its not the time of year to be selling really.

Jeff just called and said he was in Alaska.. LOL.. No not literally. there is a Alaska Wisconsin that he didnt know about till today. Well there is my wishing and thinking again.

Odd and Ends...

Ken just came home from seeing his dad for probably the last time. Ken's dad has fluid in his heart and they are having a hard time keeping it pumped out. They dont give him much time to live. I was rotten 15 year old the last time I saw him.

I told him the last time I was going to see him was at his funeral. I was terrible. He drank all the time and had Ken drinking with him and Ken and my mom were always fighting. So here is a photo of Ken and his dad..

Here is another one of Snowy. We just found out he has a bit of orange on his ears and his tail. But for some reason in this photo he is reflecting orange but is white when I look at him.. LOL.. Funny really. So looking forward to bringing home home... So are the girls really.

Now Jeff's cake even though its not done the way I wanted it to be done. But its the thought that counted.. I had to do his cake since Laura got sick and didnt even bother calling me to tell more have some one call me if she couldnt call me. Oh well. No biggy.

Bri after a busy day of paying bills with mommy and then playing outside and her bath.. LOL... She was tired. She barely made it through me washing her hair in the tub.

On another note I finally found out what happened to those afghans Laura was suppose to have mailed out in November for me. About two weeks ago she wanted me to go with her new boyfriend and take in five of her cats to the Humane Society but they were closed so we took the cats back to the basement when we got back and I noticed one of the afghans she made for the Orphans. Well I couldnt ask her straight out but I left her a message on Yahoo Instant Messanger. She calls me back and says her ex sister in law saw it and her friend wanted one exactly like it. Right... I really believe that one. I dont think she mailed them. She could never find a reciept when I asked her about. Or she was doing something where she couldnt look. So this takes the cake. I am not going to do a thing about it but I finally found out what she is like. I will never ask her to help me with anything again. I gave her a second chance with Jeff's cake on Sunday and she couldnt even do that for me so no more. The kids can play but they arent allowed in her house. She took them on Saturday because she wanted to and Jeff and I really didnt want them to stay but decided for a few hours while we went to Milwaukee what could it hurt. Well we came home early and found she ended up taking a nap and the kids were left to fend for themselves for a few hours. I never let the girls do that. Never.. I will never leave them with her again. I will never ask her to help me again. Never... Never... Never....

Life is to short for my family. I hate knowing what a person she is. She is always sick. Well if she wasnt almost 400 lbs she wouldnt be sick all the damn time. Sure she got rid of Norm but he is always harrassing her and she is sick of it. He has a harrassment case against him, a restraining order they cant serve because he refuses to give her an address to ship the rest of his shit to him.. I am in the middle of it and sick of it. I just want out. I am going to stay on good terms with her until I bring Snowy home and then I think I am going to drop all ties with this woman. I dont want any bad feelings before I bring Snowy home just incase at that point she gets nasty with me and tells me I cant bring him home.

People. I will never trust anyone again like this. I mean I have my friends and I know who they are. I have you guys.I may not know you personally but a few of you. But you all seem more friends than people I know in real life lately.

When we go home in two weeks from Friday I am seeing an old friend of mine and I dont know how that is going to go. I havent seen her since Jeff and I left back home. She was gone by then on the Army Base in Oklahoma. I think I spelled it right.. Anyway I am nervous on that one. Well enough of my ramblings. Talk to you all later.

Thanks WC..

You Are Disturbingly Profound

You're contemplative, thoughtful, and very intense.

Taking time to figure out the meaning of life is a priority for you.

Because you're so introspective, you often react in ways that surprise people.

No one can really understand how you are on the inside... and that disturbs them.

My Next Trip.....

Hi there. I promised a post of my trip home to Minnesota so here we go. I wont say where my home town in Minnesota is exactly because of a fellow blogger that I know personally lives there too. So I will just say Minnesota. Or MN for those of you that know. Jeff and I have been planning on this trip for a few months now. We were going to stay at the Holiday Inn but were talking about it yesterday.

We almost cancelled our trip until I got thinking that we had our tent and we might as well make a camping trip out of this besides visiting with family and friends. So we are going to go camping and visiting. Our first night there my mom is going to meet us at the camp ground with Potato Salad and paper plates and Jeff and I are going to bring hamburger and chips for supper. We are going to cook out and set up the tent and just relax. Yayyy.

You know we were going to spend 200 dollars at the Holiday Inn and now with camping we are only going to spend 15 dollars a night. 12 dollars for the spot and 3 dollars for electricity. Not bad. Alot cheaper this way. We are also thinking about buying a new air mattress if I cant fix the one we have. You just never know with me. I am persistant.. That is me... I dont give up easily.

Well on this note we are going to make a trip out of it. We are planning on stopping in Duluth Minnesota to visit my younger half brother if he has time. Then he will be able to meet the girls for the first time and the girls him for the first time. They are so excited to be sleeping in the tent. They love swimming but they loved it when we put the tent up this last summer and they slept in it more than we did. We would leave the back door open and they would come in and go pee and then go back out to go back to sleep. So cute..

But anyway then off to my home town to see Tshsmom and a few other friends and my parents. I have made up my mind to see M and M. I told my mother to tell them that they could come visit but if Mr M couldnt keep his trap shut he could leave. So they may not even show up. I am sick of there shit. I am an adult and dont have to put up with it. Mr. M used to threaten by putting his big ex brother in law on us because he is a cop.. So Jeff doesnt like him very much. Jeff doesnt like to be threatened even jokingly. I dont blame him. Anyway I am so looking forward to visiting with my friends and what family I have left up there.

My godmother will finish the quilts I asked her to make when we get there. She is so nice about. She says this will be the last time she sews anything for anyone though. Her hands are getting so sore. She is just about ready to retire herself. Her husband retired this last year sometime. In 2007 sometime. Not sure when. I am so excited that if we could go tomorrow I would pack us up and go go go... LOL...

That Girl I am still having problems getting into your blog for some dang reason. I have no idea why. I have accepted your invitation but it still says there is an error. I am quite dumbfounded on that one... Anyway Jeff's b-day was yesterday. I dont have his pix of his cake put in the computer yet. Laura was suppose to help me do the cake but she ended up with the flu and couldnt help me. So I went down there about two yesterday and asked for my stuff back. It didnt turn out the way I had imagined it would but Jeff liked it as it was. He said the thought was what counted. I frosted it all white and then put green lines on it for the squares. But how I wanted it done was with every other square filled in with Green frosting..But it turned out ok for the time being. I have two new photo's of Snowy. He is growing up so big since my first photo of him. Every time we go down there and I take him out of the bin he sleeps in with his sister he likes Brianna better than he likes Kora for some reason. Its cute to watch because he will crawl over Kora's lap to get to Bri.

I got a letter from my real dad today he is counting down the days until he see's us. We are stopping to see him on our way home since he will be right in our path on the way home to Green Bay in May. So anyway that is what is going on here for now. Talk to you all soon. Tweets...

This Innocent Face.....

Hi all. I have a funny to tell you. Not that I brag when its that time of month but Bri was in the bathroom just now with me and she noticed the Pad..... Again... She asked what it was.. I was thinking OH NO NOT THIS AGAIN.....

Well I was washing out some undergarments and she told me flat out that they were still dirty. I told her it was none of her business yet and she asked why? The dreaded question of the day.. I just told her she isnt old enough to know about that stuff yet.. I love them both but if they dont get answers they dont like they keep asking questions until they are satisfied.

Does that face look like she would know what she is asking me when she asks such personal questions?? LOL... Cute face but innocent I dont know sometimes.. Anyway I dont know how much blogging I will get done tomorrow. I have to finish cleaning and then write a grocery list where we can go stock back up on groceries tomorrow.

Three weeks till we go to Minnesota. Yayyyy. I am looking forward to the ride up there and then seeing Z and Tshsmom and a few other people that know we are coming home.. Oh by the way Tshsmom, M and M think we changed our minds. I dont think you talk to them that much anyway but my mom told them that we changed our minds where I didnt have to put up with M's shit. Jeff and him almost got into a fight the last time we saw them.. Well I suppose. I need to go do the last load of laundry. I have been lazy this week. Enjoy and I will be back tomorrow or Monday the latest OK..

A Wonderful Time....

Well we werent sure if we were going to make it Saturday to the Tournament in time. The directions told us to turn left when we were suppose to turn right and it was just a pain the ass really. Esp not knowing if the highways connected and you get back to where you were safely and within minutes. Well we got there safely anyway and we checked in. Jeff helped bring things up to the room and then he left right away for Round One and won it. Then we went for lunch at Burger King. But here are some photo's of the girls while we were down there.

Ok enough of those for now. There are plenty to show. Jeff goes off to Round Two which he loses and then when he comes back he wants to get out but I am not ready to leave for a while yet so we talk him into going to the pool with us. I brought his shorts and he goes down with us. I try and talk him into going down the slide but to no avail it didnt work.. LOL.. but he got some pretty good shots of us girls..I feel like I am a whale in my new suit. I was going to try and find the pix from last year and post them next to each other...But here you go.

A Jeffrey relaxing after a nice hot soaking in the Whirlpool....

That is it for now on Round Two. Round Three started at 7:30 PM and he got done at 12:45 Am and it was a draw... Yes a five hour game. He was wiped when he came back up to the room. He wanted to go back down to the pool for a while but it was closed up by time he came back up. They close at midnight on the weekends. But we have lots of memories anyway. I was going to let the girls swim on Sunday but they wouldnt listen to me before we went back up to the room on Saturday night so I said no swimming Sunday. But here is what we did Sunday.

Jeff went into his Fourth Round and drew this game also. Well it didnt last long so we have like four hours between games so we decide to go out for a while and go ride. We were trying to find a park to have a picnic at. Well we didnt find one right away but this is what happened first. We found some Fun Houses but only went to one because of the girls. This one was an upside down White House. Really neat really. Yes I took photo's.

Then off to finish Round Five which Jeff lost with in like 30 moves.. I feel for him so bad. I know how he wanted to get more than that for points. But you cant win them all.That was our weekend folks. I will be making rounds here ina bit. Enjoy. I do have more photo's but I chose the ones you might like best out of these.
