6.5 inches!

Yes! We got some rain today!!! Who hoo! We sure needed it. What were you thinking?? OH! You dirty-minded heathen LOL

It rained from 2am until... close to 5pm. There was a lot of lightening last night. I snuggled up close to my honey - I don't like bad weather.
After an hour it stopped but the rain continued.

Daniel is back from Georgia. Sarah stayed. I have to go pick her up in 4 weeks. I sure miss her giggles and sillyness. Her crazy stories and her wild ideas. I'm sure she is having a ball with her cousin. She said they went iceskating! She said her legs hurt LOLOLOL Her knee was all wobbly. I would have loved to see that.

The new girl we hired is on vacation. The old gal quit 2 days before her vacation came up. Yes, that leaves me in a crack and that crack is very tight!!! I don't know whether I'm coming or going or what the hell needs to be typed pronto.

I'm gonna NEED my vacation! I sure hope my boss approves it! I have to go pick up Sarah in Geogia. If she don't approve it.. may have to check me into the funny farm! cook-coo! Hopefully OTHER new girl will be easy breezy and the new girl will come back full of spunk and ready to go. I sure hope so. I'm tired and it's just the first day.

Of note.. Rich hooked up the VCR so now I can tape/watch all the shows I been missing. Who would have thought I'd miss TV? I like to watch tv while I fold clothes/do bills, etc.. and sometimes there is just nothing worth watching. This way I can fast forward through the commercials.

I know.. why not get tivo and catch up with the rest of 2006... it's not offered in our area. Oh the joys of living in a small town. One day.... one day....

I caught a glimpse of the Soaps one day last week. Man, those people have AGED! And the same crises keeps going around.. affairs, stolen babies, identies and crimes of passion. bleh! I'm so glad I never watched them much.

A lil Sunshine!


A very good friend of mine had extra tickets for a concert and wanted to share the love! I was so glad she did. I was able to call my sister to join me and we had a wonderful time!!!

They ROCKED THE HOUSE!

Who? WHO? WHO????



I'm talking about a band that takes me back to the skating rink, couple skates, tight jeans with huge purple combs in the back pocket to fix your feathered hair with!

I'm talking about KC and the Sunshine Band!

We had an awesome time despite the floor workers threatening to take everyone's cameras and phones. What asses!

My friend was able to take my camera backstage and get some photos!

Before the concert we ate at the casino buffet. mmm and one of the drivers met up with us. After the concert a group of us were in one of the bars and the keyboard player joined us. Too cool!

My kids will be disappointed... they love his music.. but I was able to purchase a new CD at the concert - mine were lost in the hurricane!

No explanation needed

I am 38 years old. I do not need to explain my actions or my decisions or my choices to anyone other than God.

I do not shop. I hate to shop.

I do not get my nails done or hair done on a regular basis - the joys of curly hair! I do not get it highlighted.

I do not tan.

I do not smoke.

I do not drink.

I do not go to movies.

We do not eat out on a regular basis - weekends only! All other meals are cooked from scratch at home - my choice!

We do not travel frequently or vacation in ritzy spots.

We each have a cell phone - best thing ever!

We have cable and cable internet.

We have no bills. None. We pay our utilities and insurance. That's it!

We both work.

We go to church on a regular basis.

Why does my family act insane when they call me and find out I'm at the casino.

The world is gonna come to an end because I "gave" the casino my money? Yeah, all 40 bucks!

My friend and I try to go twice a month. Sometimes I cannot go that often. So what if I drop 60 or 70? In a month? Whoo hoo! Yah, I"m out of control.

It's MY fun.

Why are moms/women made to feel bad for having fun? Yet we are often told we need to do something for ourselves - pamper ourselves so we will be the best for our family.

My husband chews tobacco. He has since he was 17. I wonder how much of our hard earned money he has spit on the ground?

Yet nothing is ever mentioned to him.

He hunts. He fishes. He pays for a hunting lease.

Nothing is ever said to him.

Why?

I never said anything to my parents when they left the day after my second child was born by cesarean section. They were gone for six weeks. On a motorcycle. All the way to Nova Scotia.

I never said anything to my parents when they sold the motorcycle and got a motor home. Or when they traveled all over the US leaving for weeks at a time.

I never say anything about their all night card games and dinners with friends.

I am happy for them. They don't owe me any explanation why they do the things they do.

Why doesn't the same apply to me? They sure don't question my brother or my sister, as far as I know.

Middle child. Always trying to keep everyone happy.

Now it is MY turn. I don't owe anyone an explanation.
