A couple days ago I found out that an old teacher of mine, Mr. I, was deployed to Iraq. He's a SFC in the HHC 29th Brigade. I was surprised that he was sent over there because, while he's not an ancient old man, he was out of the service for awhile before he became a teacher and I figured that the military had age limits on deployment. Although many are deployed there and return safely, all I can think about is the ones that don't...what if he doesn't make it back? I'm sad for how his family must feel and what they're going through daily. My thoughts and prayers are with all of them and I hope that he is home with them soon.
People like Mr. I and others that choose to be fighting for our country are truly heroes. They're my heroes. I may not agree with this particular war, but I'm not against ALL war. War is inevitable and our country wouldn't be standing here today without it. These brave men and women enlist to protect our country and are there doing their job whether or not they agree with the war at hand or the issues that surround it. I'm so proud of all of them and in awe of the selfless sacrifices they have made for our country's freedom. I just want to say "thank you" to all of them!

Have you seen this guy? I'm SURE he's the next American Idol! Ok maybe not, but he's definitely good for a hearty laugh! Does he know that he's tone deaf? I love that he's so into it, though. Sing it Fred! LOL
A couple of months ago I reluctantly signed up for fantasy football, and I did it only because we were doing it as a family and each of us would have our own team. I do have a favorite team--the Steelers and enjoy watching hubby's favorite team with him, but I'm not a die-hard fan of the actual sport. I'll watch it once in awhile--that is if it doesn't put me to sleep first, but baseball is more of my passion. I love doing the Super Bowl thing though, because of the fact that we always have a buffet set up for the four of us and I enjoy watching the halftime show...if it's good. Anyway, I started getting into the fantasy thing, and it turns out that I'm surprisingly not only first in my division, but first overall with a record of 8-1-1, even with T.O. out and on my bench! I'm soooo into it! The kids have their teams, but don't really know how to play. I'm usually the one taking care of their teams, so in actuality I really have 3 teams. It's kind of funny...who knew?
Hmm...I thought I had more to talk about but seem to be drawing a blank. Exactly 31 more shopping days until Christmas! Already?!

I've heard that for a lot of people, the first epidural doesn't always work, but the second and subsequent ones work very well. Unfortunately, they can't be spaced any closer than a month apart, so I'm scheduled for another one on November 8th. Lucky for me, I now know what to expect and won't even have to worry about anything, including the insertion of the IV (I hate needles!) and whether or not I'll be able to feel the epidural procedure.
Tonight the kids are dressing up as Darth Vader and a Barbie princess. Originally, one wanted to be a pirate and the other a scary vampire, but when it came time to shop for costumes they changed their mind (I had a feeling that was going to happen! LOL). Cute! I may have to sit this year out and stay home to pass out treats. We bought some play doh to pass out to the younger kids, and some candy for the older ones. We'll see how long I can resist before dipping into the candy stash. ;)
Hope you're all happy and well! More to come soon...

Saturday was my son's birthday. I can't believe that I have an 8 year old! We're throwing him a rollerskating party in a couple of weeks with 15 to 20 of his friends, in addition to the family lunch gathering that his Nana and Papa had at their house AND the ice cream cone cupcakes he had brought to school for his class yesterday. Isn't it nice to have 3 birthday celebrations? He's worth it though and has never had a birthday party with his friends! Wish us luck...and patience!
Here's a tip for you all--if someone is playing hackysack in front of you, make sure you let them know that you would like to play before joining in. I was barefoot yesterday and thought that my husband was passing me the hackysack. I tried to kick it and ended up getting kicked in the toes by my husband, who was still wearing shoes! OUCH! I now have a lovely bruise in shades of green, blue and purple. My daughter said, "Mommy at least it's in pretty colors!" Aah, gotta love kids at this age when they often turn lemons into lemonade. :)
This morning I got a call from my husband on his way to work. As he was dropping the kids off at school, 3 police cars drove by them in the parking lot with 2 already on the scene. It turns out that a bull had gotten through the fence and was loose on the playground. Rural excitement at its finest folks, but I'm certainly not complaining! Thank goodness it was just a bull and not some psycho-crazed person!
By the way, have I told you about the new tv?
We got it as an anniversary gift to ourselves last month and I'm still in love with it. The only downside is that now our entertainment center has turned into a shelf/buffet and all of our components are now stacked on the floor until we find some kind of shelving solution. Aah well...at least I don't have to wear my glasses or squint when I'm trying to watch tv. (And yes, I was watching Viva La Bam when I took the picture!)
Anyway, I'm glad that autumn will be here soon. The weather has cooled off a lot and it's already starting to feel like it here in the valley. Love it!

-Puff Daddy, P Diddy, Diddy, Do Wa Diddy Diddy Dum De Do Da Day whatever you're calling yourself this year. I cannot believe that you need the words to your own song on a teleprompter for a performance! Don't you know the words by now? I never thought he had any talent and I have never been a fan of his. I don't see myself starting anytime soon!
-Message to Jessica Simpson: The whore look has never been in. How can you go from being Ms. Purity to trampsing and trashing yourself all over the place? (For a perfect example of trashiness, please watch the "These Boots Are Made For Walking" video if you haven't already) You can look sexy without looking like a prostitute whore from Hotel Street. I've got one word for you: TUNA! Take it however you want. LOL
-Where's CKY? I think they should have been nominated for the MTV2 award!
-What's with people that have to wear sunglasses at night? Wasn't that the cool thing to do way back in the 80's? "I wear my sunglasses at night, so I can so I can..." OK Corey Hart!
-Beavis and Butthead?! Are you kidding me? Why are you bringing them back? Do the kids watching MTV now even know who they are? (Did I just indirectly say that I was too old to watch MTV?)
-Johnny Knoxville: I love that you can pull off the white pants, because I don't think many men can, BUT please retire that tired pair of Converse shoes and get some new ones. And see the above point regarding sunglasses at night. Take off your glasses so everyone can see how wasted you really are.
-John Norris: Dude, dress your age! You are too old to be doing the party circuit look. You can still be cool and on MTV. See Kurt Loder for details.
-Ricky Martin?! I haven't seen him since his Puerto Rico commercials!
-MTV: You picked Shakira and Kelly Clarkson to perform, but not Gwen? What's up with that?!
Anyway, now that I think about it, I do have a few things on my Hit List:
-Black Eyed Peas!!!
-Green Day still rocks!
-Rocker guys that wear eye liner! LOVE IT! And to quote my daughter, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, "That's hot!" (And no, those are not the people that my daughter picked up the phrase from)
-Missy Elliot, you go girl!
Yup, that's pretty much it so far. I think I'm going to FF through the rest of this so I can delete it and watch some more important things that are going on in the world.

"Mommy, Tony Hawk is so hot!"
(I was a little surprised at her use of the word "hot". She's 5 1/2 for goodness sakes and I have no idea where she picked it up from. It wasn't from myself, her dad or her brother and remember, this child is home with me all day! :) )
"He is? Now what do you mean by hot? Is he cute hot? Or like cool hot?
"Both Mom! He's the cutest and the coolest! He's totally hot!"
"Is he hotter than Jesse McCartney, your favorite guy?"
(Thinking)"I think they're the same. He's so totally hot!"
"Do you know that he has a son named Riley that's older than your brother?"
(Wide-eyed)"He does? Wow! I didn't know that"
"Yes he does, honey. Riley is 13, I think"
"Wow, that's old!"
I didn't want to tell her that this new "hot" guy of hers was 38 and older than her mom and dad, that he had two more sons, Spencer and Keegan, or that he was engaged to be married again. I think it's cute that she had a crush on an older guy so why burst her bubble? She's so taking after her mom with diggin' skaters and skating, watching skating videos, and having crushes on older men (although I can't say that I have crushes on older men anymore), not to mention the many other ways that we find every day. It's so cute, but also scary that it's almost as if I'm looking into a mirror with her! I told my husband that he should be careful because I got into trouble for kissing boys in kindergarten! Ha ha! It's going to be an interesting school year!

It turns out that we're not the only ones. I found an article about it in this morning's edition of the Sacramento Bee. Moles, voles, whatever...it's all the same to me. They're all rodents and it's digging up my front yard and leaving dirt mounds behind. Initially, it was only one or two dirt mounds. Now the dirt mounds are multiplying and they have begun working their way across the yard, tearing up what little front yard we have. We bought a stake that you put into the ground that's supposed to be a deterrent. It runs on batteries and makes a high pitched annoying "eeeeeee" sound, but so far it hasn't worked. The last time we went to Osh, Hubby bought one of those gas bombs, where you light the fuse, drop it in a tunnel, and bury it with dirt and the noxious fumes are either supposed to kill them or drive them away (if the process doesn't kill you first!). Unfortunately, with work and just the usual business, he hasn't found the time to give it a try.
[Sidenote: I e-mailed him at work with a link to the article before I started my post. Just got a response from him that said, "Gassing starts tonight! I hope it turns out better than Bill Murray in Caddyshack" HAHA What timing!]
You know, at first I was opposed to killing them, especially since we thought it was a little innocent mole (My daughter watches Franklin so I couldn't kill Mr. Mole!), but after reading the article and then doing some additional research I found out that they are just like mice and all they do is eat, breed and multiply so good riddance! Bleh! I hate rodents!

(almost in tears) "Honey, I had a white hair! I'm oldddddd!"
(I could hear him trying to suppress the laughter, but the huge smile was coming through the phone)
"What? You did? What did you do?"
"I pulled it out! What do you think I did?! When did I become olddddd? Do I look old?"
"Thanks alot babe! I'm old and you don't care!"
"Stace, you're not old. You look fine! You're beautiful and I love you"
(aah, how sweet of him, but I wasn't buying it because darnit I had just pulled out a WHITE hair!)
So after a bit more whining, I let him go back to work and lamented the fact that a two inch strand of my hair had turned white and was trying to ruin my life. It turned out that I had to think about it for two whole weeks before realizing I had been under a lot of stress this time too, especially with Dad being in the hospital recently. That brought a little relief, but sooner or later I will have white hair upon white hair, and I don't know how I'm going to handle it. Call me vain, say it's just hair, or what have you but it's a big fear of mine. A box of hair dye will only go so far until you start looking like the old wrinkly lady that's obviously dying her hair. (sigh) I don't want to get old! What to do, what to do...

Not sure if you have been getting the e-mails that I've sent you, but I've misplaced my address book and need your address and phone number and Sam's as well. :) You can e-mail it to the family frontiernet account. Thanks a bunch in advance!

Yes, today is our 9th year wedding anniversary. Nine years ago we were married by Bode Uale in a beautiful botanical garden in Hawaii and had a luau style reception complete with hula dancers courtesy of...oh my god I can't remember his name! How can I forget him? He was like the Hawaiian godfather of caterers that even invited us to one of his luaus in Waikiki so that we could sample the food, watch the entertainment and see what everything was like before having us commit to anything. I'll have to dig out our wedding pictures and see if looking at him jogs my memory. Anyway, that entire day went by so fast. Was it because of the day itself, sharing it with our family and friends or because of the white zinfandel I consumed the previous night and at the reception? Hmm... Regardless, it was beautiful and fun, and forever ours to cherish. We're celebrating as a family tonight and going out for dinner. I haven't decided between the Cheesecake Factory or the Elephant Bar yet. We also bought a 52" widescreen tv as our anniversary gift. WOO HOO! Can't wait to watch the world series on it! Ooh, or have movie nights! :)
Where does the time go? I was looking through some old pictures of the kids and amazed at how fast they've grown. My baby girl is now 5 and starting kindergarten at the end of next month! My son starts the 3rd grade and will be 8 in September! (sigh) It's so easy to take time for granted and get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. Sometimes you forget to breathe in each moment and savor every detail, and before you know it a lot of time has passed. I think I'm going to try to savor more and live in each moment as it comes.
Anyway, enjoy your day all! Enjoy life!

What I didn't get a picture of was his two friends on the opposite corner with a microphone, headset and video camera on a tripod. After I snapped the pic, he mimed to me that they were filming but I didn't care. I wasn't the foolio in the 97+ degree heat with the banana suit on just to see people's reactions. Does he realize that he is dressed more of like a penis that broke through a condom? I wonder if he managed to beg for enough money to pay for his dignity. HAHA

We saw this while driving home on Saturday night and thought it was funny, especially because it was parked in a residential area. We even drove around the block so that I could capture the moment. Unfortunately, I failed to capture the Scott tissue van that it was hitched to. Scott--extra soft and septic safe! Who knew? HAHAHAH I e-mailed this to my friend Scott so he could enjoy the laugh. :)
Alex and I went to see this movie on Saturday as part of celebrating our 12 years of being together, and we both loved it! It was both funny and hot! The chemistry between Brad & Angelina was WOW and Vince Vaughn is fantastic in comedic roles! I must have this movie when it's out on DVD.

And what's up with Cameo and that funky ass red cod piece? I don't recall ever seeing the band back in the day, and apparently they were trying to make the cod piece "the thing" back in the day, but oooh! That shit is just not couture! You ain't a superhero! Give that shit back to Daredevil and getchu some nice slacks.
Howard Jones & Irene Cara both had good first performances. I haven't seen their cover performances yet.
Ok now, just stop the madness! Wang Chung is doing Nelly's "Hot In Herre"! They're actually not that bad, and are somehow managing to keep up with the lyrics. The visual though...not happening!
OMG, It's just bad folks. I'm watching them and thinking that this just isn't right. I don't know...something about two white men from England trying to be all hip hop? I mean, they're covering Nelly! I know the point of the second half of the show is for the performers to do a current day cover, but Nelly? Couldn't they pick someone more in their genre? Anyway, I'm gonna go and watch the rest of this.
What could have...
Well, why didn't...
Maybe if they...
So many questions left unanswered. I clicked on a few others, mostly kids from 11 to 15 because I can't understand what is so bad at that age that just makes so many like them give up. Some of them had stories, others just memories posted, some had just a picture. The 11 year old shot himself in the head. One mother found her 13 year old hanging in the bathroom. THIRTEEN! I couldn't imagine, and don't ever want to find out that feeling. After reading his story and crying my eyes out, I composed myself, washed my face and spent some time with my kids.

Does anyone watch Blow Out on Bravo? Well it's back for season 2 as of last night! I don't know what it is about Jonathan Antin, but Alex and I just HAVE to watch him. He is straight up magical when it comes to hair! Sigh...someday I'll afford his ~$500 haircuts or his $5000 house calls!
My son's last day of school is tomorrow and today I'm off to get some back x-rays so that I can meet with the orthopedist. My Yankees are under .500 and 7 games behind! WTF is up with that? Nothing much else going on...

Today I went to my doctor and found out that I was taking a medication that I really didn't need. A $50 for 3 month supply medicine, mind you. I've been on this medication for 2 1/2 years now, so I think the doc that prescribed it had better start writing me a check. As for the back troubles, since physical therapy isn't really effective (it's been 5 weeks), I must now get some x-rays done and see the orthopedist. Hopefully we'll start getting somewhere with these back issues!
My Yankees are no longer the bottom of the barrel. Ok, so they're in 4th right now so they're 2nd from the bottom of the barrel, but atleast it's not LAST place. They could be doing a lot better if they would just get their shit together.
Speaking of baseball, my son finally got a hit yesterday on the 2nd to the last game of the season. He won the bet with his coach and was given $10 and the game ball. Woo hoo! :)
Anyhoo--nothing much else going on here. I'm off to prepare a South Beach dinner.

Damn 24! I hate how they intertwine this sappy romance BS into the show. I love the storyline and action, but it's such a turn off when they throw in a dash of drippy sappy lines here, with a handful of romance crap there. The scenes with Audrey and Jack are fine, but the ones with Tony and Michelle just make me want to throw up! What's with the "I never wanted things to end up this way...I can't live without you" crap? This isn't the show for that! It's not daytime television!
Family Plots--I love them! Not so fond of Rick, and Chuck is just something else, but overall they seem like such nice caring people! I want them to handle my arrangements when it's my time to go.
Trading Spaces--I hate the new format without Paige. I love how there is a carpenter for each house now, and the ending where the designer and carpenter gets to actually watch and speak with the homeowners afterwards. I still feel that there is a big part of the show missing and that is Paige Davis. Her personality and charisma brought something extra to the show and that presence is missed!
While You Were Out--Love the show, love Evan, but please...he needs to cut his hair! I want to apply for the show, but it would be such a big production to get Alex, the kids, and the dog out for a few days. Besides, I don't know how I would pull it off because Alex often watches the show with me. Hmm...maybe I should apply anyway. I mean, what are the chances of getting picked? But if I am, can I have John Bruce?
I haven't finished catching up on Tivo for the week because we've been so busy and also because of the new sewing machine. Oh, and add Netflix to that list. Tonight's Apprentice night though. I don't care for either of the two. Tana reminds me of a bad drag queen and Kendra is just damn annoying, but I think Tana is the more qualified to win. We'll see what happens!
Monday was my 31st birthday. No biggie. I think nowadays I get more excited about my kid's or even my husband's birthday, but not so much mine. I did wake up and walk down the hall to some really cool and cute birthday decorations. I also got a basket full of white and milk chocolate dipped strawberries delivered around lunchtime. My parents made a birthday dinner for me at their house that night, so those were all nice and thoughtful gestures. Alex ordered my cake from Freeport Bakery, which was a 1/4 sheet Fruit Tart that I wanted. OMG, that was the best! It is so good, with a shortbread crust and custard filling topped with an assortment of fresh fruit. We finished off the rest of it last night and it was still soooo good! Ooh, I have to tell you...what I did get excited about this year, besides my Fruit Tart, was my combined Mother's Day/Birthday gift...a sewing machine complete with a bag to carry the thing around in! TA DA! It's the shit! It's not exactly the one that I wanted (the one that I wanted ended up being over a $1000! WTF?!), but it's still a fancy one with embroidery stitches, an automatic buttonhole feature, pedal control, fancy stitches, etc. and it's the brand that I wanted. I can't believe that my husband remembered that! I just couldn't wait to use it. I had some fabric lying around so I made 2 pillows for the kids and 4 bean bags for them to toss around and make up a game with. I've also mended some clothes, but I'm ready for a project...a beginner's project. I'm teaching myself how to use this thing because I'm too shy to take my free class, but I think I'm doing pretty well so far. I bought a book titled Sewing 101 with some great info and beginner's projects so I can't wait to pick one out and get started on that.
Anyway, we've been really busy around here. Between my son's baseball events and my physical therapy and other day to day things, we only have 1 day out of the week that we're home, so we've (well, Alex really) been having to squeeze a lot of things into that one day, grocery shopping, errands, laundry, etc. Stress!
So what's new with you?

My batphone rang again today, and it's my Phone-a-Friend on the other end. Yes, the one that always keeps me in the know. (Love you! ;)) Apparently someone did not participate in yesterday's affirmation because after all the drama that went down, after all the hurtful words that were spoken, after that person took their shit, left and said that they were done...THEY WENT BACK! WHAT THE FUCK!?! Why? WHY!?! Please help me understand! No seriously, help me understand not only why you went back to this bullshit situation, but also what things you love about The Asshole because frankly I don't see any remote redeeming qualities there. Look friend, you can do SOOOOOO much better than that! You don't need all that crap that is continuously flung at you. Please stop putting up with all the bullshit because you don't deserve to be treated that way. Can you tell me why you want to be with said Asshole? What things do you love about them? Because if you can name one good reason why you love The Asshole and continue to be treated like this, then tell me and I'll never say any stink thing about the Degrader-that-says-awful-things-to-you-and-you-keep-staying-
with-that-person ever again. Pinky swear. I love you Friend and only want what's best for you!

-No one is born with same-sex attractions.
-People can choose to change from a homosexual to a heterosexual orientation.
-Change is possible.
He appparently also has 2 books out:
-Coming Out Straight--Understanding and Healing Homosexuality
-Gay Children, Straight Parents--A Plan for Family Healing
What the fuck is that all about? Do you, Mr. Cohen, think that everyone that is gay chooses to be gay, in a world full of hate and intolerance? Do you think that they made their choice to be gay because they just thought it was cool and didn't feel like having the same rights as straight people have? No one, well that I know of, just wakes up one morning and says "Hmm...today feels like a homo day for me. I'll be gay today!" What, do you think they caught the Homo virus and need to be healed? Dick, what cheap ass crack are you smoking?! What is your problem with homosexuality? And why do you feel the need to be the savior of all that is homosexual? They're not sick, they're human!
I was sitting there infront of the TV last night and just couldn't believe all this shit that he was saying. AND--I couldn't believe that there were people actually coming to see him for his healing services, because someone didn't like who they were and said they're supposed to be something else. Someone out there convinced them that homosexuality is wrong. Someone convinced them that they were sick for being gay. Someone told them that God hated them and they were going to burn in hell for all eternity. Why can't we as a society just let people be? Don't we have bigger things to worry about?
If anyone out there thinks that I'm the crazy one and that I'm missing the mark, by all means please enlighten me. I'd like to hear what you have to say.
By the way, this Dick was just a tiny tidbit in a half hour show. There was a lot of other bullshit on there, but this whole thing with Mr. Dick and the sexual reorientation and healing took the "Don't Make Me Blog About You" award for the day!
Let's all pause and do an affirmation. Everyone grab your mirrors and say:
"I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and god dammit people like me!"
Say it. Again. Again. AGAIN! One more verse, same as the first! Shampoo, rinse, repeat! Listen to yourself as you say these words! Shout it! One more final time, but with conviction! Ok, enough of that.
I just wanna say, that if someone is treating you like shit, and/or it's the same undeserving bullshit over and over, dump her or him (I'm equal opportunist) and move on! I know, easier said than done, right? Well, take it one day at a time and things will be better before you know it. It could be a day, week, or even a year, but it'll happen. All it takes is one foot in front of the other. A great group of friends (or any support system you have) and a favorite comfort food also helps, so you may want to stock up on both for the healing process. No turning around, no running back.
Anyway, thank you Phone-a-Friend for always keeping me in the know! Love you! :)

According to the South Park Studio, this would be me. Ta da...Super Cissy!
I'm still hurting. Still lying on the floor. Still frustrated. We're supposed to be at a friend's baby's baptismal today which is only a couple minutes away from us , but unfortunately I'm still a caged animal and growing more restless by the minute. Shit happens...
I do want to take a minute to thank everyone out there that have stumbled across my blog, and let you know that I appreciate and thank you for all of the positive comments and well wishes that I've received. It's reassuring to know that there's still a lot of good and kindness in the world. Thanks people! It helps!
I don't want to turn this post into a whining party, but unfortunately it's all I can think about right now. I guess I'll go and Ebay. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

OMG does Bobby Trendy own a mirror? Is this supposed to be must have couture and I'm just missing the mark? What's this craziness all about? Honey, your makeup application is flawless, but I'm not feeling your ensemble. Some people will do anything for the spotlight I guess.

Last night we all ventured out to the mall so that the birthday girl could have her birthday present early, and be ready for her 5th birthday today. She did it! She got her ears pierced and was very brave about the whole thing. She did one ear at a time without a tear, whimper or the slightest ouch! She said that it didn't hurt, and afterwards was very quick to tell EVERYONE in the mall she passed that she " just got her ears pierced at Claire's!" Aah...to be 5 again!

The Pope passed away on Saturday. Cardinals are now holding meetings to find a successor. I mean no disrespect, but can someone tell me why Pontiffs have to be OLD old?
The Yankees kicked serious Red Sux ass on Sunday and won their season opener 9-2. YAY!
"I Heard A Rumor" that Bananarama's back, but minus Siobhan Fahey and Jacquie O'Sullivan. You can check out their stuff at http://bananarama.co.uk Ok NKOTB, it's your turn! ;)
Speaking of NKOTB, did anyone catch Jordan Knight on last season's Surreal Life? I would have seriously thrown myself at him back in the day (I've even snuck into their hotel and climbed 36 flights of stairs to see them), but now he is sooooo not hot! His 15 minutes of fame, along with everything else has fizzled! Anyway, I'm onto way hotter things to, (ahem)
www.bamargera.com There's just something about skating and skaters in general. Is 30 too old to learn how to skate and be a sk8er chick? Viva La Bam! Seasons 2 and 3 are out on dvd April 12th.
www.evanfarmer.net I never knew of him back from his 2ge+her days on MTV, and I seriously didn't like him when he first became the host of While You Were Out. He's funny and silly though, not to mention easy on the eyes and has grown on me, and now I TIVO him every week.
Anyhoochie, laundry calls. My new high efficiency front load washer

So I guess the appropriate line here would be, "April Fools!"
Check out this picture that I took of the apple blossoms on my parent's tree. I took it w/our digicam and I'm quite proud of it. I'm thinking of blowing it up and framing it for some much needed artwork throughout our house.
Yes, I feel that I should post something nice and pleasant, as a sort of makeover since that last post got all UGLY!
[A little sidenote, my daughter is yelling to me from the bathroom, proudly describing how her fecal waste lookes like chicken on a bone and a peanut. This makeover isn't off to a good start. LOL!]
I was chatting with a dear close friend of mine today on AIM, and he informed me that the Pope has passed on. A few minutes later, I noticed the date and had to make sure that he wasn't April Fooling me. I really did have to check...my tv's been on the disney channel all morning, so I don't really get a taste of the real world until later when Hubby & I can watch some grown-up tv. It was the Pope's time, I suppose.
Hmm...strike 2 as far as my pleasant post goes.
Nothing much else going on. Our neighbor got a new puppy, and I can hear it's whimpers and cries over the tv that's on. Crap! I'm not holding my breath on getting a good night's sleep tonight.
Ok, strike 3. I give up! I'm out! Have a great weekend, all! :)

Mmmhmm! Bobby Trendy says, "Don't hate me because I'm a sexy biotch! You wish you looked all sassy sexy like me! Luxurious!"
Now, I'm not a Bobby Trendy fan, but I just had to post this picture because I want these pants! Can I have mine say Bitch? HAHA I wonder if I can find a bedazzler on Ebay and make them myself!

Earlier this week, I remembered how I had my secret little crush on Lee Davis, our school's Jostens representative. I was going to marry him and make him one of my husbands (I had quite a running tally LOL)! I wonder if he's still a Jostens man? I'll have to Google him later and find out. Ok, so I couldn't wait and searched at Jostens.com for my alma mater's rep. Wasn't him anymore. I didn't think so, but then again you never know.
I've been having a lot of high school memories lately, mainly because I'm still reading through the box of letters that I brought back from my parent's house. It seems like so long ago, and yet just yesterday all at the same time, from the "Well, well, wells" of a sweet friend of mine that I'm still occasionally in touch with, to the nose hair jokes of that certain tall Texan classmate I'll call Delaney (Geez, I hope he's learned the art of manscaping by now! tee hee). It would be nice to have a class reunion in Hawaii soon. Since our private school doesn't have organized reunions, I've been thinking a lot of trying to set one up. Unfortunately, I wouldn't know how to get a hold of everyone, even though we were the senior class of a whopping 12 and mostly everyone still lives in HI. Besides, I have no idea if people would be interested anyway. Ah well, moving on. Back to life...back to reality. :)

Here I am with my beloved. Aren't we cute? This was the taken the night that the kidlets were sleeping over at my parents house, and we went out to dinner for Hubby's birthday. I'm getting pretty good at those self-portrait shots, don't you think? Can't even tell that my left arm is holding the camera out infront of us.

Anyway, sorry for the downer post today. Maybe it's the rain outside...or maybe I just need some comfort carbs. ;) Cold stone anyone?

Back pain's a bitch, ain't it?
I can't remember the last time I've driven, so lately getting out of the house is a rare treat for me. But alas, I didn't write this here to invite you to a pity party. Just wanted to let you know where I've been...er, that is haven't been! Thankfully, I have TIVO! :)
Hope everyone else is healthier than I've been. I'll be back in a bit with a vengeance!

Um yeah...saw this on the trading spaces website:
"I just wanted to take a minute to say goodbye. As you may have heard, TLC is taking Trading Spaces in a new creative direction. They are moving into a host-less format and therefore I will no longer be in the cast of the show. My last episode will premiere in March and in the meantime I'll be looking toward my next adventure and what will hopefully be a bright future and a lot more time with Patrick and Sophie. :-)
I cannot begin to explain what an incredible journey this show has been for me. I love Trading Spaces so much and I am very proud of what the cast and crew has brought to you. I have loved working with the amazingly talented cast. I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting all our homeowners. And it's been a thrill meeting awesome and dedicated fans like you all over the country. I will miss my friends very much, but I know they all wish me well and send me off with their love and support; and I am sure that Trading Spaces will still be a fabulous and fun show for all of you to watch. I will certainly be watching and cheering them on.
With much gratitude,
--HOLY CRAP! I can't imagine what the show's going to be like without her. She's helped make the show what it is today. Hmm...I wonder if any network will give her a talk show?
