Mic check 2 - 1 - this thing on???

Well I have been MIA since July 28, here it is 3 months later.....

I wonder if people will remember me, if they will even care. Did you take me off your blog roll????

Ya see I have this problem, its called Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. What?? When did I get diagnosed with that?? Oh I haven't been, I sorta diagnosed myself. :) Ya see I tend to compulse over random things and then I don't finish them. This is my list.....

Cross Stitching....I have like 5 projects that have been trying to get completed since 1992. I wonder if my sister still wants those bears I was working on....

Exercising....Yeah that is an ongoing on again off again love affair...sigh

House Work....ok yeah so I never am compulsive about that

TuTus.....yes I now make tutus and I have a lot of Tulle and not a lot of tutus finished. Now I finished the ones that were ordered, but the ones in my head, yeah they are still there.... many to list. My craft room is now the crap room.

Cooking....Oh I was gonna cook a lot of stuff....I have the recipes does that count??

Redoing Furniture....My garage is running over with stuff I thought I would "re-do"

Twilight.......Still obsessed :)

Blogging....My sister said I would not keep it up....she was right. I did make it a year and then something happened. Stupid Facebook....:(

So this is my attempt to get back on the horse! I am want to blog again! I want to feel the wind on my fingertips as I type feverishly on the keyboard. So this is where you come in. If you are my friend on FB you my lucky one get to hold me accountable! You get to say, " I better see a post from you today, and I mean Stat!" So are ya gonna do it??? Are ya gonna help me????? Pretty Please with Sugar on top?????

Oh and just so you remember me and what I look like, this is me.....


Yeah more on that outfit later.....I need something to blog about. :)

So I have not been around lately....


Sometimes I take things in spurts, I can never stick with anything to awful long.  It comes in cycles though.  I start thing, I dont finish them, or continue them, and then I pick them back up again.  So goes blogging....

Well I am trying to pick it back up again.  I miss you guys....:(

I miss knowing whats going on, but my biggest problem right now is finding the time to read everybodys stuff.   It might help if I wasn't addicted to crackbook, but its so fun over there....

Well enough of me whining.  So how has everybody been, life treating you good?

This is what has been going on with me (in no particular order).....


I have learned how to make tutus and become an Ellerina!


Decided to take up selling ice cream...(not really I just hijacked the ice cream truck!  You should have seen the look on the guys face when I hoped in there.)


Jessie turned 19!


Went to Mission Fuge again, but this time I did not break my toe.


Syd was in her first ever beauty pageant...



Its been tractor pull time around here again....




Oh and did I mention, we almost got thrown out of Wally World.....


Yeah so that's been my life in a nutshell.  More to come soon, I promise!

Dream a little dream...


There is a time of sleeping that seems to be a parallel universe.  Its a state of consciousness and unconsciousness, a state of vividness.  It seems to happen when that first alarm goes off in the morning and you hit snooze.  You roll back over and enter a very very strange world.  Every now and then when you wake up, you can remember everything.  Sometimes you probably wish you didn't remember.


The other morning I had such a dream.  It was a place where all me randomness converged into one major story.....

I remember being in front of my Daddies house.  Syd and I were in a car.  I think I was teaching her how to drive. (I learned how to drive in front of my Daddies house) For some reason though, the car would only go in reverse (I learned how to drive in front of my Daddies house by driving in reverse, then putting it in drive and going back to the end of the road), and the breaks would not work and the accelerator was stuck.  The road however seemed to just keep going.  Then a car approached us quickly and then passed us.  It was a mail car.  (My Daddy was a mail man)  I was being driven by the Jonas brothers, they were wearing red jackets. (I have no idea what that means)


Suddenly the end of the road was coming at us very fast!  I told Syd to hold on and then I reversed it into the ditch across the street hoping it would slow the car down.  The car continued on, only coming to a stop in the neighbors back yard.  Stopping like 20 feet from a bunch of children that were being babysat by one of Syds friends.  (Hi Taylor!)


(I talk with my hands)

Then Carl Winslow came out of the house (Must of watched Family Matters before I went to bed) and was the police officer working the wreck.


Then as I was standing in the neighbors yard I noticed these bricks that were on his house.  They all had numbers on them.  He told me that they actually were there honoring his family who died in the holocaust.  They were the numbers that were given to them at the camps.

Now can someone please tell me what in the world all of that would mean!

It was really really weird.....

What's up!



I know, I know I should just be whipped with a wet noodle, cause I have not been blogging. 

Its been a bit crazy around here, things have been taking my time, like the gym, facebook, the kids, facebook, Church, facebook, work, facebook ya know the usually stuff.

Some things that have happened while I have been gone:

Jessie wrecked her car.  She is fine the car had some major boo boos, but will make a full recovery this week.


Our neck of the woods got the swine flu.  WooHoo schools closed for two days and now we have to make them up at the end of the year and shorten our already very short summer!


Syd got "attacked" at school.  She wants me to call it that, because she did not get a lick in.  She is fine, nothing stops that kid.


Jess has sprouted wings and is attempting to jump out of the nest.  I am not taking this very well.  :(  God told me to let her go he had her, so I have.  Please pray with me that she will make wise decisions.


I have a stye on my eye from crying so much.


I know you wanted to see the stye, but this is just an illustration very similar to my eye.  Except I have brown eyes and much longer lashes.  :)

And the big one........

Syd now has a learners permit.  We got it today.  She almost killed us like twice already.  Please pray for my sanity.


And just for your viewing pleasure, some picture of Me, Mama, Lisa, and Robin yesterday after we took Mama to eat for Mothers day.







Ok hopefully it wont be so long between post this next time.  I might not be around long after posting these pictures anyway.  :)

Oh Barbie the place you will go....



Ya know I have been sitting around thinking about what to blog.  I mean my creativity has been a little lacks lately and I just feel that I can't bore you with all my ball stuff.  Then on the way home the other night, a random blog post just fell into my lap.


As I was minding my own business, driving down the parkway I see the strangest sight.  So I pull out my trusty camera to document what my eyes are seeing....



Do you see it?????  This is not just an ordinary Harley!  This is a Harley with a pole dancing Barbie!


Oh Barbie the things you have seen.....


Dear Mr. Motorcycle Man, 

Thank you for letting me take your picture, even though you did not know it.  I have tried to keep your identity save.

Oh and by the way... The dog is at the neighbors again, this after Big Logan calls me wanting to know why there is a dog in his garage.  :)



Monday, April 13, 2009


The other day, Friday to be exact, we had some major storms come thru here. It left a path of destruction and debris in its path. It also left a dog at my house.....

(Not actual dog, this is just a dog that looks like the dog)

We now have a Miniature Collie, or Sheltie running around outside.

You see I got this call right after the storms from Jessie telling me, "Oh mommy, we have a new little dog, he is oh so cute and precious, and well mannered, and pretty, and precious, and can we keep him? Huh Huh Huh Huh.......

Me being the wonderful Mother that I am, I said that dog better be gone, by the time I get home! So they took it over to my sister Lisa's house to try to pawn it off on her. It was close and she almost caved, but in the end she held her ground.

I told the girls, he probably just got lost during the storm, let him run around and he will eventually go home.

Saturday, the dog is still here running around.

Saturday evening the dog is gone. :)

Then I find out that the dog is at the neighbors in the back yard. At this point I am thinking better you than me.

Sunday still no sign of the dog running around, still must be at Josh's.

Sunday evening, the dog is back at my house. (I did not tell the girls, I went in the house and never mentioned seeing a dog)

Monday morning, the dog is walking with my Mother-in-Law... Ugh!

Monday evening (tonight) , I just stopped Jessie as she was driving down our road, on my way back from the gym. She had the dog in her lap, in the car!

Now to make this whole thing worse, other than the fact that Jessie does not want to actively seek the owner, she went and took the dog off the neighbors front porch this evening.

My child is a dog stealer......Lord help her :(

When I asked her what she had to say for herself, this was her response.....

"Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers"

Please, If anyone has lost a Miniature Collie in the North Alabama area, please email me, I think he is at my house.

Paaaaaaalllleeeeaaassseeeeee! I don't want another dog! :(
