I heart Edward

That's all I wanted to say. Oh and I'm pretty sure Edward hearts me. Oh and I really liked the movie. Oh and I'm totally gonna buy it when it comes out. Oh I'll probably will most likely be forced to watch Twilight again...'cause of my thirst for Edwards hawtness. Oh, I think I might have a problem.

That is all. Oh wait, no it's not. I love LM...just in case you were worried about my hearting a fictional character.

Don't you hate it when...

Your feeling under the weather and a tad bit on the crabby side when you go into your kitchen and see your brita water filter on the counter completely empty and your like "Am I the only one capable of filling this thing up???" in your most annoyed voice, speaking to nobody in particular. So you open up the top, position the faucet, turn on the water then walk away.
The infamous brita and faucet.

Then a few minutes later your 5 year old comes to you and says something like "Mom, there's a lot of water." and you immediately say to yourself in the most snobby annoyed voice "What did you guys do this time?" Then a few steps later, you realize that YOU are the problem. You run to the kitchen that is now a lake, lift up your too long jammie bottoms, run to the faucet to turn off the water then scream at the kids to find every towel in the house and bring it to you pronto and they bring like 1 towel and ask where the towels are and your like " WHAT THE *@%$? YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE THE TOWELS ARE???? HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A LIVE AND LIVED IN THIS HOUSE????"
So then you run around grabbing all the towels while your 3 year old enjoys a swim in the kitchen. 10 minutes later, you've soaked up most of the water in the kitchen, you walk into the dining room and feel a very wet squish beneath your feet....then say "CRAP NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" . Your forced to rip up the carpet and the padding to dry the floor and now it looks like this
but first you have to move the 10 ton china cabinet out of the way by yourself and it's like REALLY heavy and it royally sucked.

really heavy china cabinet (that we actually don't put china in cause we don't have any, don't cry for me Argentina..I mean friends...it's ok...we're kind of into plastic dishes anyway.)

The good news is, I think it's become our motivation to replace our disgusting carpet in there soooo...now I need opinions. I'm thinking wood laminate...any opinions or ideas????

I know I haven't been around much but...

it's for a very good reason. World of Warcrack came out with an expansion and I've been VERY busy healing people and hunting stuff in the new land. It's exhausting.... I should really quit but.... I'm not an addict or anything, I just play recreational-ly...I could quit at any time...I really could.... but I'm not....' cause I'm not an addict.

OOOO I do have some good news though. In the middle school they are have "that" educational time...you know, the time where all the kids are embarrassed because they are learning about each others bodies...hahahahahaha Anyway, Jackson took some very important notes that I thought I would share with the world.
There you go people. I think he summed it up pretty good. He even signed and dated it. I think I'm gonna be keeping this, in fact, I may go laminate it....when I'm done laughing.

Happy 'The Election Is Over' Day!!!!!!

Unlike most of America, I don't have cable so all the campaigning wasn't in my face EVERYDAY unless I checked the news on the net...which I do once a day but don't always read the articles, just scan the headlines...just keepin it real. So my 2 cents might not even be worth that BUT I'm glad it's over and though I don't agree with Obama, I'm feeling hopeful for our country. I think for the first time in a REALLY long time we can finally see that no matter your race, gender or religion, anything is possible. He's going to be the example to those that hold themselves back or use excuses to not be or do something better. I was even touched by this speech, it was beautiful and I do realize it's just a speech and actions are stronger than words, but it left me with a feeling of hope. I think hope is big, especially now when this country is in such a mess, hope can change this country...maybe Cathe's optimism is getting to me. Plus, I was watching a short video from The View, and they had a numerologist and a psychic on and they both said that Obama was going to win and this coming year is going to get better...so that's good news....

HA 2nd post today and it's not even 10:35 AM

I've been a blog reading slacker and I'm trying to catch up today. I've been noticing a Halloween theme going through everybody's blogs which makes me feel REALLY guilty. Guilty? you make ask why. Because this year I talked me kids out of trick or treating. I don't know if that makes me a genius our a really mean mom. I'm pretty sure it's debatable. I'm not a halloween / costume kind of gal and some years it's worse than others. I don't know what it is but after 10 years of trick or treating it's getting kind of old...PLUS Bub needs something to talk to his future therapist about. Poor kid, does this mean I've ruined his childhood??? Maybe it won't matter, maybe he won't remember or think it's weird that I didn't scrapbook Halloween for this year. I don't think I'll be able to get away with it again, but this year I sat back and enjoyed not getting kids dressed and ready to go trick or treating in the cold wet rain.

Since I don't have Halloween pictures and I know you guys are DYING for more halloween pictures I decided to post pictures of me and my best friend Krysten circa 1988. We totally rocked!

continued

HA GOTCHYA! I'm not really continuing hahahaha I'm so sneaky...almost as sneaky as Jenny and her no halloween blog post. I had big plans of continuing but call me lazy...or busy, it didn't happen, plus the other 5 rock with their blog posts that it even made me jealous of the trip and I was there....well you know....except for the observation deck of the Seattle Space Needle but really people, how was I suppose to go out there when I could feel the building move???? I'm pretty sure that if I stayed out there the wind would have TOTALY blown me off the building...and that is a FACT!

So anyway, instead of continuing I thought I'd share pictures from Sara's Princess Derby. That's right boy scouts, move over 'cause the girls are in the house...or the church gym...whatever.

Sara's Car
She had a blast designing and painting her car.

Wanna know what cars at a Princess Derby look like????
Pink...very very very pink.

Here's Sara, nervously awaiting the big race.
She's the one in the pink skirt.

Her first race
She lost...boy did she lose. I guess that's what happens when you design your car to look like a minivan....

Her car never won, even when they were goofing off after the derby. Though she did come in 2nd place when she raced her 2 friends but she was so sad that 1 of her friends lost that she said that she wished her car would have come in last so it wouldn't make her friend feel bad. Have I told you how much I love this girl???? She ROCKS!!!!

P.S. when you decide to finally put up a post make sure it's under your own blog and not SMART REMARKS. I'm just saying....I'm retarded....
