busy busy busy

i thought that after the holidays things were supposed to slow down for a bit, giving us mommies a little break. RIGHT! now we have all the winter programs at school, and midwinter break is coming up real fast. where has the school year gone?
been thinking about my garden lately.... i need to build myself a medium sized planter box thats fairly deep... i want to contain my veggies this year, and manage how big they get. last year my tomatoes overtook my whole garden killing off my peas and cukes !! pissed me off. BUT i think this year i am going to try my green thumb on some cherry tomatoes instead of giant beefsteak ones. last year my girlfriend planted cherry... they were fruitful for months, and absolutely delicious! she cheated tho, she bought little baby plants, i9 plan to plant everything from seed again this year. its almost time.... i am getting anxious. i wish i had more space, i would start all my seedlings in the house now! lol.
i also want to try to grow peppers this year, i want a jalepeno tree... and also to grow red green and yellow peppers. i dont know anything about peppers, so i have some reading to do. heck maybe if i plant peppers too.... the squirrels and birds will accidentally eat the wrong thing ... have a mouth of fire and not come back! last year i hardly got any strawberries and peas. they loved them. and do any of you have any ideas how to keep birds from stealing your fresh planterd seedlings? i need to prepare for that this year! i replanted seedlings 3 x last year! especially of lettuce, they really dig the young lettuce. i found out that beer is most appealing to slugs, so i no longer use any slug bate, i just put out a few saucers of beer... they crawl in get drunk and die!! lol nice way to go i suppose.... better than salting them. omg speaking of slugs.... hubby found this crazy game, kids love it and its kind of fun....
its called slug slayer.... object is to kill slugs with salt... go figure. lol, but it really is fun, so far i have not gotten more than 18 slugs. give it a whirl, let me know how ya'all do. theres actually a ton of really fun games on this site, surf around maybe you will find something you really like.
ok im off to do the chores. i wish i was jeannie... little nod of the head and chores are magically done.............. i know wishful thinking eh? lmao....
have a great day bloggypals..... the sun is out ... better enjoy while we can :)

here is a recent picture of the kids with their gramps...... and since J looks like such a goober, i thought i would post this pic of him too......he loves when he gets money for x mas.... and the one of K is adorable, chillin with grampa, and if you look closely lol, it looks like his king kong figurine is jammed up his nose, but honestly, he was just holding it in front of his face to show it off.... camera angles do funny things.

toodles for now............

This is fun...

I have recently found a new website for my kids to play online games without other players. and I found the coolest game. actually its really rather lame, but oddly enough it is addicting. so go give it the old highschool try... I promise its fun. so far my lil ones have made me look horrible, K got a whoppin 40, W can get all the way to 15, and me.... well I got no further than 27. the object is to get your worm around to eat food and grow larger, however you are not allowed to run into a wall or yourself. challenging? YES IT IS! lol feel free to leave in my comments how far you have made it.....

A pic of Z

I went to my daughter's school website to see some of the new pics that have been uploaded recently. unfortunately there werent any of my lil princess. BUT there was a great pic of Z, remember the little guy I spoke of in an earlier post......well in any case this pic shows what a great personality he has. and his eyebrows are just great... look at them. they have that high arch like Jack Black's. anyway, I thought I would share . He's pretty good friends with my lil Winter-pie.

ramble , ramble........

well, i ventured out and about with hubbys car, and again it broke down. this is payback for not having any vehicle problems in the last 6 years. because my dad has towed both of my cars a total of 3 times in the last month. its really rather funny actually. normally i would freak out if i broke down and cry out of fear... i didnt have my license. (i know shame on me) but i finally got my license.... so i dont care if a cop stops to ask if i am ok or need help.... and do you know what? not one cop stops! whats that about? if i were still unlicensed you can bet that one would inevitably have been in the area.... but since i have broken down and i am legal... theres not a cop within a square mile. go figure! lol
i think that while winter and keegan are in school today i will take down my christmas tree!!! yes i said christmas tree. my tree is just so pretty, and it was still alive... i couldnt see taking it down.but as of yesterday i noticed it seems to be getting a bit on the dry side now, starting to die, time to take it down. i hate putting my christmas stuff away. my mom gave me some of the coolest decorations this year as she got new ones. she gave me this really neat fiber-optic house and gazeebo with x mas carrolers and everything. its very pretty. she also gave me these 3 little bears, each of them holds 2 bells... one of them has a sending unit that tells the other two when to play the bells right?!!! ok so you can place these bears up to 10 feet apart and they will still all play the bells. each one makes a different part of the song but alltogether ya know what i mean? they play like 15 different x mas tunes. they are actually very cool...... untill one bears' batteries die, and you dont know it untill you go to push the button on one of them and only one more chimes in, so the dang song is all messed up. oh and the bells they are holding light up while they fling them, very neat. ummm, cant i just leave them up all year??? lol. its always so sad to take it all down.
well if i am to get this stuff packed away, then i better get to it..........

bloggin away

oh my gosh, have any of you seen the commercial for the smc make your own money from home? the guy is like "just send me 25 bucks and i will send you the free information....blah blah..." wait if i send him 25 bucks then is the information really free? i think not! anyways, hubby wanted to change the channel, but i was still waiting 10 minutes later for this guy to tell me what smc stood for... so i wouldnt let him change the channel... needless to say i waited forever to see what his deal was, 125 acres of warehouse space blah blah, stuffed with products you can make a 300 % profit on blah blah, and the dude still didnt tell me what the name smc stood for. so i blurted out "well what the hell does smc stand for anyways, cant get people to send ya 25 bucks when you dont even tell them what your company name is" so hubby says.... lmao he says "smc stands for send me more cash ......." i laughed so hard. hmmm, maybe you had to be there to laugh, but seriously it was funny.
so ya know yesterday was winter's first day back to school.... keegan started back on tuesday. so we walk in to the classroom, and everyone is so excited to see her. she sure has alot of friends. but there is this one kid in her class that has kind of a broken home. as far as i can tell he lives with his gramma and his mom is in jail and drug treatment. i cant be for totally sure cuz i can only sort of overhear conversations. i have never asked cuz i feel like it would be rather rude so the info i know is always overheard. in any case this lil guy is so needy for attention. he wasnt there when i dropped off winter. but in the afternoon when i picked her up it was recess time. so i pulled up by the playground , parked the car and wandered towards the area where they were playing. out of no where (we'll call him z) z comes running from across the playground, yelling as loud as his little lungs will let him "winter your mommy is here, hi caralyn hi , i missed you when it was x mas time, how are you hi" and he ran right into my arms. hes so danged cute, i asked how his x mas was, he said it was great his mommy even sent him a letter. i almost cried. so sad when mommys make babies and then sluff them off for petty things. then he asked how our x mas was. i told him it was great. just then winter came up hugging me saying what a great day she had. then z told us both that i could ...and i quote "you and winter could steal me, you could take me home with you" i was flattered and so hurt for him at the same time. he needs his mommy. and he said it so sincerely with a giant smile. it broke my heart. and whats worse, the teacher heard it, lord i hope she doesnt tell his gramma about it. how heartbreaking that would be for her.
anyways... gonna go run some dishes so maybe i will be back later........
by the way we are trying to figure out .gif files.... this should prove to be time consuming.....

one of my bloggypals posted this....

I got this from PRESENT STORM'S blog... you will find a link to her blog in the right hand column.... koodos to her for posting it, was truly amusing. if you have time to check out her blog, she's a pretty neat gal...

To All My Online E-mail Friends:
As the New Year starts, my heartfelt appreciation goes out to all of you who have taken the time and trouble to send me "forwards" over the past 12 months. Thank you for making me feel safe, secure, blessed, and wealthy.
Extra thanks to whoever sent me the one about rat crap in the glue on envelopes 'cause I now have to go get a wet towel every time I need to seal an envelope.
Also, I scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason.
Because of your concern I n o longer drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains.
I no longer drink Pepsi or Dr Pepper since the people who make these products are atheists who refuse to put "Under God" on their cans.
I no longer use Saran wrap in the microwave because it causes cancer.
I no longer check the coin return on pay phones because I could be pricked with a needle infected with AIDS.
I no longer use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day.
I no longer go to shopping malls because someone might drug me with a perfume sample and rob me.
I no longer receive packages from nor send packages by UPS or FedEx since they are actually Al Qaeda in disguise.
I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a number for which I will get a phone bill with calls to Jamaica, Uganda, Singapore, and Uzbekistan.
I no longer eat KFC because their "chickens " are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes or feathers.
I no longer have any sneakers -- but that will change once I receive my free replacement pair from Nike.
I no longer have to buy expensive cookies from Neiman Marcus since I now have their recipe.
I no longer worry about my soul because at last count I have 363,214 angels looking out for me.
Thanks to you, I have learned that God only answers my prayers if I forward an e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes.
I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl who is about to die in the hospital (for the 1,387,258th time)
I no longer have any money at all - but that will change once I receive the $15,000 that Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their special email program.
Yes, I want to thank you so much for looking out for me that I will now return the favor!
I f you don't send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in the next 7 minutes, a large pigeon with a wicked case of diarrhea will land on your head at 5:00 PM (CDT) this afternoon. I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of my next-door neighbor's ex-mother-in-law's second husband's cousin's beautician.
Happy New Year !!!!

I got that e-mail today and got a laugh out of it ..I am sure most of you have seen all of these e-mails at one time or another...WHY do people continue to forward these things?lmao It still cracks me up.Have a great 2006 ya'll !!!!

shopping with rude people sucks!!!

hiya bloggypals. just a note to tell ya'all about my day yesterday. my friend and i took the kids out yesterday. we ventured out to the local asshole store otherwise known as walmart! i only say this because people try to run you over in the parking lot, the employers are VERY rude (i think thats a result of the assholes that shop there) and 90 percent of the customers are assholes too. ok lemme explain..........
it took us over an hour to obtain kitty food ,toilet paper , razors and a few other little items. heres why.........first of all trying to get into the store was a joke. the line for returns and stuff was so dang long it went out into the store and wrapped around in a circle! and all those people were BITCHING incessively about the line, well um hello, if ya DONT like it, DONT stand there, but please dont make us all listen to you have a cow! lol. so long about halfway thru the store winter needs to pee ( every time eh? lol kids....) so we are boonying to the bathroom across the store... and people are so rude to little people. one jerk even pushed past my little 5 yr old and said " get the hell out of the way" i was like EXCUSE ME SIR, BUT WHO DIED AND MADE YOU KING OF THE STORE? he says "hey fuck you lady get your kid out of my way" i calmy told him i hoped the fleas of a thousand camels infested his armpits and we walked away. ok, now winter is a five yr old little girl, do you really think she specifically tried to be in his way? i dont hardly think so! what a jack ass! plus is it her fault she cant see any higher than a persons crotch yet??? oh yes she has mastered the art of looking ahead of her to make sure there is not one crotch in her way. give me a break! heres what i want to know, where did the human kindness and decency of this world go to anyways? for god sakes little kids are being abused in the store now just for being small. its bullshit! so all ya'all out there who think you rule the world..........your wrong cuz I DO lol, just kidding, but seriously all people need to remember to be nice to little kids when they are out shopping and happen to get in your way, they arent trying to. so we were walking back towards the section of the store where keegan and my friend erika were waiting for us, in the pillow section. funny thing is there are a million pillows in the aisle and the only one winter spots is the neck pillow that is shaped like a horseshoe, and of course it has pictures on it so you can see how to wear it. so winter loudly asks "mommy why is that lady wearing a toilet seat on her neck??" i almost peed my pants right there i laughed so hard. others' around her were laughing, ohhhhh but not the asshole ... he just stood there glaring. god forbid he should laugh at something funny. i bet hes an asshole ALLLLLLL the time. did he follow us just to be an ass? who knows.
so we left walmart, not before standing in ungodly lines to check out tho. now we are on our way to Red Robin. mmmmmmmm yummy. the kids are excited because we don't very often enjoy the finer things in life like eating out. erika thought since it was her b day last week, she would ask if they would sing her the happy birthday song. she explained that her b day was right near x mas and we couldnt come out on x mas... so please could they honor her birthday just a little late? and do you know what.... they said yes! so after her meal 6 people come over to the table clapping loudly... she was like whats going on? then they stopped at her table... still clapping loudly and now singing a happy birthday was adorable, she got totally shy and hid under my armpit. then they presented her with a fudge sundae..... woohooo. it was so cool to see the look on her face. so she starts eating her sundae...of course the whipped cream was on top.... she is grubbing the cream when all of a sudden she hit ice cream, and blutred out "oh mommy, theres ice cream too" i said did you think it was all fudge and whipped cream? blushing she said yes. the funny things kids say and do never seem to fail to come at the most unusual moments. thats for damn sure! ok now i have rambled on for a while, i think i better get back to my dishes............... till later...
