I Got Picked Up...By a Girl!

Yes I did!

I went out with my good friend Friday night to see a local band at a bar in my hometown. While she was in the ladies room a woman came over and started chatting it up with me. She was very friendly and nice. She was asking me if I was from the area. I had said I grew up in the town but have not lived here in years. She says "REALLY! I am looking for a girlfriend for my husband and me and you are adorable!"



She went on to say her and her husband were married 26 years and that was the secret to their happy marriage.

Thanks, but no thanks.

I took it as a compliment that she was trying to pick me a weird sorta way of taking a compliment.

They sat next to us the rest of the night. It turns out that their best friends are my mom's neighbors!

Hey, it isn't often that I get picked up by the same sex! It isn't my style, but I was honored that a chick thought that I was cute enough for her lifestyle!

Our Thanksgiving!

We had a great day!

We started the day with Hubby and I running a 5K. The Wobble Gobble they called it. It was a great family event. They had babysitting for the kids and then a kids race after.
My goal was to do it in under 30 minutes. Which I had never done. I DID IT! 26:27!
Chris was gracious and crossed the finish line with me. He totally would have smoked me. Although, the race results said I beat him by 1 second! GO TEAM MOM!

Tommy took our picture after it!

They loved the kids race. Here is Katie walking to the start line.

Then Tommy getting ready!

They got little plastic medals!

They have learned the importance of stretching after a big race!

We got home and got ready for company. We just had one family over and our single friend Roland. Tommy made place cards for everyone that included their name and an Indian symbol. His was lightening.

The kids couldn't wait for dessert. Tommy was so excited he forgot to take his bike helmet off!

And here we are at the end of the day!

Good run, good food and good friends!

Who Needs Dolls?

When you can just push your pumpkin in the stroller!

Yes, that is what Katie is doing!

She wouldn't let us carve it.

She named it Aidan.

She is pushing it around in her baby stroller!

Things I ponder......

Why can't people admit when they are wrong?

Why can't people who are adults, act like one?

Why can't people who have children love their children for who they are? The good, the bad and the ugly. Life is to short to shove them aside.

Why can't people hit spell check when they email you? It really makes you look that much less of a person when you are trying to make a point, but can't spell a simple word, or many for that matter.

Why do kids decide they need you the very second you are on the phone or in the bathroom?

Why when you have no kids around and are excited to sleep in the next morning you can't? You wake up the same time your kids usually wake up?

Why when your house is a mess someone decides to stop by unannounced?

Anyone else want to add to my list??????

My poor Tommy has not been feeling well lately. He has just not been himself. I just had the mommy intuition. He has been chronic tired and just not right.

I took him to the DR and they ran a whole blood work up. They noticed a canker on his tongue. He had been complaining about it. 2 days later (and terrible night sleep) he waked up and his tongue is covered in white spots. I knew right away it was Thrush. Which is a side effect from his asthma meds he takes daily. The poor kid.

I ended up taking him right in to see the DR again Friday morning. She did tell us all his blood work was fine too. One thing was slightly elevated. She is treating him for a sinus infection.

It is amazing after just several doses how kids bounce back. I feel like I got my Buddy back!


I was giving Sam a ride to work this morning. It was early so I just grabbed my coffee and was still in my PJ's. No one was going to see me.

Right ?


She wanted to drive. She says to me...."you are wearing that?!?!"


"Well, what happens when you get out of the car to change spots with me?"

I drove......she wasn't risking it!

Tommy's Pledge of Allegiance

Tommy was reciting the Pledge of Allegiance for me. He of course learned in Kindergarten. They do it every morning with the principal reciting it over the loud speaker.

After reciting it to me he keeps going:

".....with Liberty and Justice for all. If you have any notes please give them to your teacher. Have a great day here at Center School"

They must say the same thing every morning!

Vacation- ADULTS ONLY!

Tomorrow Chris and I are headed to Miami, South Beach. Our anniversary was yesterday.

I can't wait!

4 days with no kids!

Chris planned the whole thing. I told him I wanted to part of it...but had a few criterias that needed to be met.
1. Warm
2. Beach

He also was responsible for finding someone to stay at out house with the kids.

He did it.

We are up and out at 5AM tomorrow and will be back Sunday night.

Miami, here we come!

Ummm Ya.....He Did That!

Tommy gave his Dad the middle finger this morning.


He was mad about something and then looked at Dad and put it up!


I asked him how he learned it and he said when we were away he stuck it up and was told it meant a bad word. So when he was mad at Dad he decided to put it up.

Trust won't happen again!
