Come on 2008, I can hardly wait!!!

I can hardly wait for 2008. I have had a rather bad 2007. It's not all been bad, but let me tell you it all hasn't been good either.

2007 saw the three of us sick, back to back to back. All Three of us, three times sick. That was January, and I was still recuperating from my fall on Christmas eve. Also Jan 17th was the first anniversary of my mothers death so it was a bad day, and sent me into a spiral of depression.

2007 two good friends lost their dad, one to a horrid accident and one to suicide.
2007 also had 4 other deaths of people we knew.

In March we had to put our old basset hound down. I was hard but the best thing possible. 2007 we also had to bury our poor Flutter. (parakeet)

2007 has not had my dad in the best of health. Blood clots, cardiologists, all sorts of stuff.

2007 was the year of surgeries and teeth, and surgeries because of teeth. Surgery for me, for Alekx for the house elf. Teeth problem for me and kiddo.

2007 One sister in law with her family moved back, and found out yesterday that one more is coming back. ahhhhhhhhhhhhh

Now it wasn't all bad. I got to see Alekx and House Elf, we got a new dog, a new parakeet, Kiddo started middle school, and we are all still alive and kicking.

I would just really like to start the new year and hope that it goes better than last year. I'm not holding my breath though.

My wish for all of you this year. That if the year can't be perfect. That you all stay full of love, and hope, and stay alive and kicking when it's all said and done. That you all are happy with what you are given, and take the time to tell the one's you love that you love them.

And for all of you to keep on bloggin, cuz god knows I would go insane without reading all of you out there. You keep me going. I adore you all, and wish you all a very very.

I'm so cold my nipples won't behave.

Holy pointed nipples batman it's fricken cold here. Been dam cold all day, hell all weekend.

We took our Christmas decorations down today. We watched movies as we took them down. We watched The Nanny Diaries. It was pretty good. I was just ticked that with all the phone calls we got it took almost 4 fricken hours to watch that movie. Then we watched Fantastic 4 Rise of the Silver Surfer, and Zoom. I like both those movies.

The mother in law called to say they were doing a dinner tonight at the sister in law's. One of the sister in law is in town with her son, they are leaving tomorrow. And I just found out they are moving back in March. Okay somebody shoot me now. grrrrrrrrr

It actually wasn't a bad dinner, we all sat around the table making fun of the Nieces husband. hehehehe All the kids were outside on the trampoline freezing their tooshes off.

Came home and now I have a flipping soar throat. I think it was from all the wood smoke. But it's bugging the shit out of me, and I don't want to be sick.

We had to tackle the multi toed cat. Poor Bugsy. With all them extra toes, he has one nail that will grow around in a circle and grow into his foot. I had him in the vet before to get it cut out. They said it would probably grow back. Well it did, and we don't have any dam money to go to the vet. So...three times Gigantor tried to get him wrapped up last night, and that cat tried to kill everyone in the house.

Tonight we wrapped all but the one leg in a jacket, then Gigantor held his 17lb ass up by the scruff of the neck and in the other arm put his body in the jacket in a vice grip. I grabbed his paw and turned it over, and had to pinch parts back to get to that nail. He was so pissed and hurting. And Ick there was puss all over. I got it trimmed, and had to pull it out of his foot. And this huge piece came out, and then the smell hit me and I was almost sick. There was a huge hole in the pad of his foot, and puss and blood.

We let the kitty go and went and found the Bactine, and then had to re catch and wrap him so I could douse the thing in bactine. Last time when we went to the vet they gave us some antibiotics cuz it was infected. I'm hoping with the medicine and him licking it, that I won't have to go that far. But dam it was gross.

The things we do for pets we love.

Well keep me in your thought that I don't get sick from this sore throat. I have to much to do.

Have a good ummm Monday everyone!!!

Oh my Gosh

Holy cow, I said I would only be gone from posting for a couple days. hehehehehe guess that stretched out a bit.

I was so tired the day after Christmas, must have been to much running non stop for two weeks. I finally dragged my ass out of bed, and sat down to watch a movie with Kiddo, and fell asleep during the movie. I slept until Gigantor got home. I couldn't wake up to save my life. But I felt so much better the next day.

Yesterday, Captain Daddy came over, and we did a bunch of his shit. He showed up again today. The heater in his little travel trailer is broke, and the guy can't start to fix it till the 7th. We have offered him to come back down here, but he won't. Only so much I can do.

Kiddo and I have been building leggo's. He got a Naboo fighter and drone ship, a Y wing fighter, a big drone carrier and an Imperial Walker. They are hard as hell. lol

I got some goodies for Christmas. Gigantor got me some clothes (shirts and jammies) and an MP3 player. I've never used one so will have to figure it out. Captain Daddy got me a goblet that has a pewter dragon wrapped around it, and he got me a set of small pewter dragons and a dragon that sits on the computer. A friend got me a goofy reindeer and some books I wanted. Mother in Law got me a windchime. And Alekx and the house elf got us a video camera whoooohooooo baby!!!! hehehehhe

And Santa got me some movies. New Harry Potter, Pirates 3, three old one's Boogeyman (I had this one, but father in law lost it), Crank, and The Holiday.

This weekend we will be taking all the christmas decorations down, and being tired again. lol

Okay I'm off to help build more leggo's.

Have a good Friday everyone!!!!

Some Busy's and Pressies and early night

Okay so today wasn't so bad, still tired, but not as bad. I took Kiddo to school, he only had a half day. After I picked him up, we ate lunch together and I wrapped some pressies

Gigantor got off, and we went to walmart. Had to get Captain Daddy a couple things, and got stocking stuff, and regular stuff we needed.

Come home and made a couple plates with goodies and apple butter to take up to our friend D, and Gigantors parents. They are all leaving tomorrow for out of town. Then went to the Nieces and got my candles.

I got some things in the mail I wanna show you all.

A dear blogger buddy, Cookie Monster, well him and I have been talking on messenger for a few months. He found out my son loved military history, and he likes the history of WW2. Soooooo.... All the way from London, Cookie sent these for Kiddo for Christmas.

He sent us a Christmas pudding also, cuz I had never heard of or tried one before. And some Orange Hot cocoa, I can't wait to try it. Thank you so much Cookie!!!! Your the best!!!!

shhhhhhhhhh don't tell, I'm sending him a box right after christmas. I had to make something to go in it before I could send it.
Then I went to the post office today and had a package from Melodyann over at ShooFly blog. She put together a gift exchange. We all got names and you could only spend 5 bucks, but look at the awesomeness she sent me. Crossword puzzles and the cutest mini mechanical pens. And the most awesomest fuzzy socks!!!! Thank you so much Melodyann!!!!! I heart you!!!!!
I have recieved lots of cards from you blogger buddies, (not all of these in the pick are just from blogger buddies) but I would like you to see how I display the cards, cuz I love them so. I cover the inside of my front door, then they start bleeding over to the wall as you can see. Thank you all my blogger buddies!!!! I heart you all too!!!!! hehehehe
I'm gonna go get a shower and have my ass in bed before midnight tonight. You all just watch. hehehehe

Have a wonderful weekend everyone if I don't post again before Monday!!!!

I heart all of you!!!!!!

Another Late one

Oh my gosh it's another late night. I got kiddo to school and read some blogs, then I started wrapping. I still have so much to do. I know you all hear me say that every day. But lets look at this for a moment.

--I grew up poor, so we didn't have alot of presents (hell I'm still poor and it's that way)
--Mom would wrap up every little thing so we had "tons" of pressies under the tree.
--I do the same thing.
--I've gone as far as to wrap batteries for things and put them in stockings.
--Take socks out of the package and wrap them one pair at a time.

That way it always seems like there is tons and tons of presents under the tree. I get lots of little stuff, or stuff that has other stuff with it, and I wrap everything individually.

2nd reason I'm doing so much!!! I WRAP FOR FRICKEN EVERYONE!!! I used to say I wrapped for everyone but myself, but this year after I wrapped some stuff for Captain Daddy he said it was my presents, so now I'm even wrapping my own.
Who I wrap for
--brother in law
--Gigantors parents
--2 very close (call them my sisters) friends.
--Other of Gigantors family he might have got a gift
--And co workers for secret santa or christmas parties
--Captain Daddy
--Captain daddy's stuff to kiddo
--Captain daddy's stuff to gigantor
--and apparently captain daddy's stuff to me.

Anyhow after wrapping Gigantor came home and we went to bank and delivered some avon. Went and got Kiddo and took him to the eye doctor. Delivered more Avon, went to the store, and cooked elk and deer steak. After dinner got up and made three batched of peanut butter bars. Got Gigantors apple butter and cards for his coworkers ready.

Here is where I need to ask for prayers or good wishes sent. At Kiddo's eye appointment. The doctor sent him out of the room to talk to us. Kiddo's eyes have changed so drastically in just one year, he's concerned about something. So far not that big a concern, but it could get bad in a hurry. He's suspecting he has a disease called Karataconus. Basically its a very thin cornea. So thin that he would need hard contact lenses to protect it, and if that didn't help it could go as far as a cornea transplant. Now all this is just suspicion right now, and in a year we may have to go for bigger, badder tests. And in a year it could prove to not be that. Just if you would send up a little prayer for the latter. I would hate for my baby 11 year old to...I mean... know what I mean.

Okay gonna stop being so down and leave you with two goodies, I know long post again.

1st is a recipe

Southwest wraps

1 block cream cheese (softened)
1 cup sour cream
1 can diced olives
1 can green chillies
1/2 cup chopped green onions
(you can add salsa or pimento's or whatever you want)

With electric mixer, mix cream cheese and sour cream till smooth. dump in olives, chilies and green onions till smooth.

Spread on tortilla's leave 1/4 of tortilla at one end blank, roll up (it will squeeze to the blank end, if you don't leave it blank you have stuff squeeze all over)

Cut in inch and a half pieces. Good stuff

Then also a little you tube thingie. It says it's a drunk Reindeer, but I feel like this goofy now, but without the benefit of alcohol. hehehe

Have a good Friday everyone!!!!


What a busy busy day yesterday. Got Kiddo off to school, and then Captain daddy came over. He sat down and helped me wrap some gifts. He wrapped about 4 or 5 to my 15, but hey that's 4 or 5 less I have to do. hehehe

Went and got kiddo, checked mail, and had to bust ass home to meet up with a different computer guy that was helping load a writing program for kiddo.

He left, we got dinner, (was gonna finish canning the apple butter after). More problems with avon, so I start making phone calls again. It was supposed to be on on Monday. All sorts of people had Christmas stuff and secret santa stuff they needed for today. Apparently the truck out of California left a pallet there, now not a small one, but one with like 800 boxes on it. grrrrr They ended up expiditing it by UPS. So guaranteed by Wed. 8 at night I was starting to panic a bit.

We got up and started putting the apple butter in jars, then I started on grinding up graham crackers for more peanut butter bars. Then UPS showed up, so I was tearing into the avon to get all the secret santa stuff pulled and bagged. About 9:30, we put peanut butter bars on hold till today. Gigantor starts cooking the bake and serve cookies Kiddo needs for two school parties, and I work on the avon. When all was said and done it was about midnight.

We fell into bed. I was right to sleep. Then about 2, I get woken up to a weird noise. I listen, and I hear it again, and the whole bed shakes. Each time the noise is made the fricken bed jerks. I hear WOKICK!! WOKICK!!! WOKICK!!! Squeaky and all. Then my brain un fuzzed enough to realize that GIGANTOR HAD THE FLIPPIN HICKUPS IN HIS SLEEP!!! He was so dam rude, he didn't even have enough courtesy to wake up and be misserable through them. Neither I or the dog could sleep with WOKICK WOKICK WOKICK and the bed jerking. grrrrrrrrr

I hit him, I kicked him, I poked him with my nails, hell I even threw the dog at him. He would not wake up and he would not stop. ahhhhhhhhhhhh god help me. I finally put on my headphones and turned my music on to try and drown out the noise.

So...I'm up and tired. Just had some toast with apple butter, and having some coffee, before I get my ass in gear and do more wrapping.

Hope you all have a great and wonderful Thursday. Remember only 5 days until Christmas. ahahahahhaa

Gonna leave you with a little video, I don't know why, but I love this kid!!! Talented too, so that always helps.

What fuckity fuck day is it???

Oh my gosh, I was so busy today, I don't even know what day it is. grrrr and lol hehehehe

I took Captain Daddy to the doctor today. They are gonna take him off of the blood thinners. whooohoooo but put him on another medication. boooo hisssssss And I need to get him on Fos Free, I take that. And I need to get him measured and get compression hose for his legs.

Then he bought me lunch and after lunch we both fell asleep on the couch. hehehehe

He went home, and I peeled eggs, went and got kiddo and got mail.

I got a package from Cookie Monster, I'll have to put up photo's he sent some orange hot cocoa, and a christmas pudding and a couple books for Kiddo. They are about WW2 in britain and the Blitz. My son is very much into military and war history, I know he's gonna love them. Thank you so much Cookie Monster I so heart you. hehehehe

We busted a water valve outside so Gigantor was fixing that, so instead of him helping me, I was busy making the three dishes for his potluck party tomorrow. Southwest wraps...maybe I'll do that recipe later. A pasta salad thingie, and deviled eggs.

Then Captain Daddy came back down and we got chinese. We had a gift certificate, so it ended up costing us a dollar fifty. hehehehe. Then Gigantor and I peeled and cored and cooked and set up apples for another double batch of apple butter. I'm pooped now.

Okay gonna go but gonna leave you with a recipe, and a fun little thing to do.

Have a great Wednesday everyone, and remember ONLY 6 MORE DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS!!!! *ducks lamp thrown at head*


1 1/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup butter--softened (1 1/2 sticks)
2 cups powdered sugar
3 cups graham cracker crumbs

3 cups chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter

Grease 9x13 inch baking pan

Couple things today

Oh my gosh the house smelled so good all day!!! Soooooooo good. I was quite busy doing some cards, (to hand out to in town and my customers), doing some little thank you gifts for some customers, and wrapping some other gifts. And doing the apple butter. I've had a few requests for this easy squeezie recipe. So.....

Apple Butter

10 cups peeled, cored, apples.
6 cups sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp ground cloves.

You can use paraffin in your jars, or not, I don't, I just use the canning jelly jars. It usually never last long enough to need the paraffin. A double batch does 12 8 oz jars.

Anywhoo. Cook the apples in a big pot, (just boil till soft) Put them in a blender to make nice and smooth.

Put apples in the slow cooker, add sugar , cinnamon, allspice and cloves. Stir well.

Cover and cook in the slow cooker for 17 hours, stir every once in a while. Take the lid off the last 2 hours of cooking.

Boil your jars, and fill them hot, set them to the side and they will pop/seal in 12 to 24 hours. Keep refrigerated after opening.

If you don't jar it at all, keep it in a plastic dish in the refrigerator, it will last a week or two. But usually doesn't last that long around here. hehehehe

Now just for shits and giggles I have to leave you with a video.

Not only does this explain how the dinosaurs really became extinct, but it also brings tons of giggles from 11 year old boys. And they play it over and over again.

Have a great Tuesday everyone!!!!!!

Randomness and busy weekend.

Well happy Monday to everyone!!! Isn't it sad when you are glad it's Monday so maybe you can get some rest??

The Suburban isn't running right still. It is running a bit better. We are hoping with a couple more doses of boost and heat (gas additives) that it will be running fine then. I've never gotten bad gas before (in the car people...sheesh) So this was a first for me.

My house smells soooooooooo good right now. Mixture of apples, cinnamon, allspice and cloves. Making some apple butter and it has to cook for 17 hours in the crock pot. But OMG the smell.

Okay now I'm gonna tell you all about my weekend. hehehee Just so you can see I was a busy little Burfica.

Saturday Gigantor got up and was to work at 6 a.m. After he got off he ran to walmart and got the stuff I needed for the candle party and he got stuff for his work pot luck on Wed.

I got me and Kiddo up and fed, and then I wrapped a couple gifts.

Helped Gigantor put stuff away, and then started cleaning up the house. We didn't have to do much, straighten the living room, do dishes, clean off the table.
1/4 of the table is my "desk" for avon, 1/4 of it is Gigantors junk pile, and I had wrapping and stuff all over it. Got everything but the floors done.

It's about noon at this time. Gigantor went up to help the Uncle start butchering his elk. The uncle wanted a calf, but ended up getting a cow, so it was much bigger than he thought. So he said if we help butcher he would give us some meat. Which is nice, seeing as all the money we spent on hunting and Gigantor got nothing.

Kiddo and I hung some laundry. Then I was peeling, coring and dicing apples, while he was putting dishes away. Well a heavy green bowl fell out of the cupboard and hit him on the head, then shattered all over the floor. I screamed OH SHIT, cuz it startled me, plus it hit his head. He started crying and appoligizing. He wasn't crying out of pain, he thought I would be so mad. I kept telling him it was okay, accidents happen, then I had to yell at him not to move, cuz he was barefoot. So I got that cleaned up.

I got my 10 cups of apples all done and in the fridge, and it was about 3, so me and Kiddo went over to uncles.

They were working on the 2nd quarter. They did the two front quarters first. Kiddo and I got put to work doing the hamburger. They had a big bowl of scrap, and we had an electric grinder and some cut up pork fat, and we got to work.

We ground up the hamburger then I got to work separating it and wrapping it in plastic wrap, to keep air out. Then you wrap it in butcher/freezer paper, and label and date it. I got 30 packages of elk burger off the front end. Then I helped wrap all the other meat. Steaks, roast, stew meat...etc....

Finished the front end and it was about 6 that evening. Cleaned up some and Uncle ordered some pizza. After pizza we got busy working on one of the hind quarters. gahhh we shouldn't have done that, cuz there is much more meat on the ass end of an elk. lol

We got home about 11 that night, and were so tired we just poured into bed. I'm not even sure if we fed the dogs. uggghhhh

Sunday, we set the alarm for 6. gahhh

Got up and did the floors, and made home made peanut butter bars with chocolate on top. I'll post that recipe soon. OMG soooo good. Then I cut up meat and cheese and made a tray of it.

Then it was 9:30, went to Uncles. He made us some eggs, then we finished up the last quarter of the elk. He put me to work doing all the wrapping, then I did the hamburger with Kiddo and more wrapping. He said I was so quick wrapping and did such a good job, that I just got designated to do that. LOL

We ate the leftover pizza, then Gigantor helped him load the elk in the freezer. Uncle took out some deer he still had in there and a good 1/4 of the elk and put it in an ice chest and gave it to us. whoooohooooooo!!!!!

But I did make and wrap 58 packages of elk burger, and wrapped 30 packages of steak, 9 or 10 roasts, some tips, and tenderloins. Man I was dreaming of plastic wrap and wrapping meat. hehehehe

We came home at 1 and finished a cookie tray and the peanut butter bar tray and made some punch.

Then Gigantor took a nap on the couch, and people showed up. Had a nice candle party. The people that came ordered enough that I got 30 dollars off my order. I ordered 5 big candles. Now those candles are usually 15 bucks or some a bit smaller are 12 each. After all my discounts, I got the 5 for 42 dollars. That is not bad at all. whoooohooooo

We then cleaned up after everyone left, and Gigantor made a rock on pork tenderloin. We watched some t.v. then got up and cooked all those apples. Then put them in the food processer, and realized that we needed a good double batch. So I went to peeling, coring and cutting again. I only had enough for 8 cups instead of 10, but we went with it.

Got the apple butter all ready to go, and then cleaned up the kitchen and stuff. Turned the apple butter on and went to bed. gahhhh I was tired.

Today is a massive amounts of coffee day.

I hope you all had a great weekend, and have a good Monday, this post is so long, I'm gonna stop it here.

It's late and I'm goofy as hell

Okay it's late night blogging here and I'm goofy as hell. I can't even think straight.

The lady did come to get me so I could get my nails done. Thought I would add a couple pictures of it.

This is picture number one!!!
This is picture number two!!!
Gigantor did get the suburban fixed. Well fixed enough to drive. We put in a new fuel filter and some gas additives and good junk. It's running better but the check engine light is still on. Could be cuz it's still sputtering a bit till we get all that junk out of it.

We went to the parade of lights tonight. It was a bit dissapointing, but it was still fun. I mean they didn't have many things in it and only a couple were creative.

I have to do a ton of shit next couple days. I have to totally clean up the kitchen and living room (which is a disaster). Cuz I'm having a candle party on Sunday. Gigantor has to work, then he's running to the store when he gets off. I need stuff for the party and stuff for his holiday pot luck. I then have to make the stuff for the party (just a desert thingie and come meat and cheese and crackers) But I also wanted to peel and core the gazillion apples I have. Get them cooked and chopped up and in the crock pot for apple butter. But apparently Gigantor promised the uncle we would go up at noon and stay all day to help butcher the elk. grrrrrrrr

I am so tired I'm not sure what I just typed. All I can think about right now is how nice it would be to have an orgasm, not that I want sex, to tired, just the orgasm. And I keep thinking about how nice a bowl of apple jacks would be in the morning.

I'm going to bed!!! Have a good weekend everyone.

Cosmic Turd is back

That cosmic turd that was shitting on my head for so long is back. I swear...I dunno how to make it go away.

We went in and the principal isn't there till Monday. But we did talk to the band teacher, got a few things straightened out. Going to go back on Monday and talk to her and the principal and get it all straightened out.

The concert went well, and Kiddo had tons of fun, so that is all good. He looked so dam cute!! hehehehe

On the way to the concert my suburan was acting weird. Coughing and sputtering. After the concert it was doing it worse, almost died on us a couple times.

Started it this morning to warm up and it was doing it real bad. It kept revving itself to right that, and it seemed to be running okay. On the way up to drop Kiddo off at school, the service engine light came on. After I dropped him off, it coughed and lurched and tried to die the entire way home. I brought it home and just parked it.

Gigantor and the mechanic from his work thinks it could be one of three things. I'll put them in order of what I wish they are.
1. The fuel filter, we are hoping for not an inline one, but even inline is better than the alternatives. Cost a bit and is a bitch to put in, but is doable.
2. The fuel pump. Cost quite a bit and is a major bitch to put in. lol But still doable
3. The internal computer. Cost way to much, impossible to buy and put in, will just take the suburban, stick some antlers on it, and pretend it's a fucking elk and shoot at the thing. Cuz that's all it will be good for then.

But no matter what it is. I have no money, and to break down right before Christmas?? WTF???

So...anyhow, I hope Gigantor can get it fixed tonight. In the mean time, I'm calling around scrambling. Trying to find rides to and from places. Trying to find someone to get my kid after school. Of course Gigantor's parents have two cars but god forbid they should loan us one for a day or two. grrrrrr

And to put the icing on the cake. I guess our thermostat in the house has to remind us every so often that it is going out as well. The thermometer says it's 62 degree's in here, yet I had to turn the heat up to 86 before I could get it to kick on.

And it's snowing hailing here. Can't make up it's mind, so it's doing both. Now as I don't mind either. But it's all blue skys around this one cloud, and it's been dumping on us for over an hour now. lol And I wish it would be clear till Gigantor can get the suburban fixed.

Okay that's my pissy Friday. Hope you all have a better one. hehehehe

Not a happy Camper

I'm not really a happy camper today. I've been fighting with the school for the past few days. Let me try to give you the short version.

Stupid ass band teacher is failing Kiddo because he can't do the tests. She is supposed to make special compensations for his disabilities but she won't. Talked to her a few times about it. Then she said he could play one instrument, I bought all the stuff, then she wouldn't let him play it. He doesn't like what he's playing now.

Then they are having a Christmas concert tomorrow night.
1. She told the kids they all had to get black pants, white shirt, tie, and a santa hat. If they didn't have these they wouldn't be allowed to play in the concert.

I had black pants for him, but they don't fit. I don't have money to go get more. He doesn't own a white shirt. This family doesn't do white. It would just get ruined first time we wore it. I ended up calling the principal. He said Kiddo would get to play no matter what. Band teacher was pissed. They went and bought him a black pair of pants. I borrowed a white shirt. They said they would provide santa hat.

2. She has been marking 2 points off of his grade every day that he doesn't bring a santa hat in.

Oh hell no!!! they said they would provide one, why is she taking points off his grade.

3. She just barely gave them a paper today saying that they had practice after school, wanted them to walk 4 blocks up hill carrying their instruments (a fucking tuba people) Then the paper said if they didn't have their hats and other stuff at practice, they couldn't play in the concert.

OH hell no!!!!! again!!!!!! She tried telling Kiddo he couldn't play in the concert because I didn't bring him a hat. Ummm you are supposed to fucking provide it.

4. She tried telling my son that he couldn't play in the concert because he didn't have his mouthpiece today, he misplaced it in another class. And not that he needs it. Seeing as the tuba he has has a broken valve and won't even play. He keeps telling her and she keeps saying he is lying.

OH FUCK ME NO!!!! She is going to fucking listen, and since it won't play, she is going to let me bring up the beat up piece of shit he has at home for practice that she gave him. At least it will play and he can play in the concert.

5. She is still trying to get him stopped from playing in the concert.

We are meeting with the principal tomorrow, and gonna demand to talk to her. The concert stuff, his grade and bringing a different tuba is going to be all worked out. GOING TO BE!!!! Then I am switching his music class for next semester.

She won't work with me, he's fucking out of her class. I know all his friends are in band, but he is hating it so bad, cuz she won't get the fuck off his back about stuff that he can't do or that isn't his fault.

I'm putting him in a "general music" class. They study all types of music. Classical, native american, african, all sorts and they get to try all the different instruments. I think he will like that alot better, then next year in 7th grade he will be allowed to join guitar like he really wants too.

Sorry not a good post, but I have been ticked off.

Hope you all have a good Thursday. I'm off to get some stuff done, and go to the concert. Enjoy everyone!!!!

What the fuck is that???? This video is something else. As I watched it I first said, WTF!!! Then I said. Those poor kids have way to much time on their hands!!! But then I said, well I guess it's better than binge drinking at a party!!! Then I said, wow, they really do sound like the sugar plum fairy song. Then I spit coffee all over the place, cuz I was watching the girl in the lower left corner. Her face will make you pee yourself laughing.

I can only hope I will be as proud as their parents are I'm sure. hehehehe

Have a good Wednesday all, Maybe I'll come back and post about the past two days here at home.

Avon Meeting Goodies.

Wanted to show you all the goodies I got at the avon party on Friday night.
This is a little Ms. Albie. You get a big one in the spring if you make presidents club. Then you get this little one that goes under a glass dome at christmas time.

You get this necklace at Christmas time for being presidents club too. You can sorta see my thumb in the pic. hehehehe
All us avon ladies got a Believe pin for being good sellers. There is a CZ to dot the I.
I wish you all could smell this basket, this was in the gift exchange. The pine cones were soaked in cinnamon something and OMG it smells soooo good.
Then I got these in the gift exchange too. It's a set of 4 place mats and a table runner. To bad the camera didn't do them justice, cuz they are all outlined in gold.
Got this little goodie, it holds a little brick of papers (notepad) and has a big green pen with a christmas tree in it.
Seeeee the pen lights up when you write. OOO excuse my fork in the picture it was dinner time. hehehehe
Then we got a tiny box of rather expensive truffles. yummmmmmm
Okay well that is about it for my post. Gigantor got home just now from hunting, and no elk. dammit all anyway.

I will check in with you all.

Have a good Monday everyone.

Friday, December 07, 2007


Okay I will spare you all from more christmas pictures of my place. hehehehe

But I was scanning you tube. For like 2 hours. hehehe I got hooked. And I found something that I probably watched about 40 times. I may have seizures later from starting at it. But I want to share.

Miranda talked me through how to load a you tube video on blogger, so I'm going to try it. I hope you all like it. I have quite a few you tube things that pertain to christmas that I saved. So maybe I'll start boring you all with those.

I would post about the avon party, but I am so dam tired, I can't tonight.

So...we will see if this posts, and then you can burn your eyes out to it also. hehehe

Have a good Weekend everyone!!!!!

Number 3 has a tree!!!

Well I'm back with more pictures. These should be the last for a day or two, who knows. I'll tell you about them then about my day.

This is my tree, not the best picture, the lighting and little cheap camera doesn't do it justice. I don't know if you can see all the windchimes hanging in the background. Told you I collect them. hehehe

Here is our angel on top of our tree. Not a great picture, she is white and blue and fiber optic.
This is one of the two hand painted southwestern ornaments I won at that charity dinner. I like this one. The other one is purple with a Kokopeli dancer on it. I think it's on the back of the tree though I couldn't find it to take a pic.
Just a wider view of one of the shelfs I have been taking the pics of. My nativity, Rudolphs and stuff. The clock that has a glares is snowmen and it plays a christmas carol every hour.
Another wide view of my other wall. Got three wreaths, and our stockings. As you can see I have deer for Gigantor, Marine corps for Captain Daddy, wolves for kiddo, and me?? Well I get the plane old green one. I don't rate a themed one I guess. hehehehe The painting on the wall is that one I won at the charity dinner.

I'm glad you all have stuck with me through all the pictures. I sure am enjoying that thing.

Gigantor got off tonight. That sounded gross didn't it?? I mean he left for his hunt. His last weekend to go elk hunting. He is going with my uncle. Will be gone till Sunday night. Let me tell ya, I will be glad when this weekend is over. I am so sick of him going, and just leaving everything in a tizzy. And honestly he's been so dam useless since first of October when the hunt opened. I can't get him to do shit. Now after the hunt maybe he will focus on crap that needs done.

I guess I'm down this time him leaving. I'm so dam tired, and I have an avon meeting/party tomorrow. I have to make food for, and take a gift, and lug some stuff around, and my back is bugging me. Kiddo can't go to the thing (no kids allowed) Usually I would say screw it. But they give tons of freebies away at Christmas. I tried a couple friends to see if they would watch him and nobody is gonna be in town. I guess I'm gonna attempt to leave him home alone. I do during the day, but I never have at night/evening yet. I'm sure he will be okay.

Gigantor talked to his mother, and she wants to come bug me on the weekend, and honestly I just want her to stay away!!! I just want it to be me and kiddo and kick back, watch some t.v., putz around the house. I hate when people try to disturb my laziness. hehehe

okay I'm off. Gonna watch a couple movies with Kiddo. The Elf Bowling movie and Live Free or Die Hard movie. hehehe See!!! Gigantor misses out when he's gone. hehehehehe

Have a good Friday everyone!!!

Christmas Pictures #2

First I wanna say Happy Birthday to Captain Daddy!!!! I took some more pics of the decorations at the house. Wanted to put them up. I'm having a blast with this little camera.

Got my computer fixed last night. He did a few things too it, then gave me a list of crap to download, for updates, and charged me 90 bucks. grrrrrrrr I guess it's better than having a broke ass computer though.

This is my adorable countdown to christmas thing. You put all these little ornaments in the snowmans bag. Then you turn it on and it says "each day place an ornament in this tree to know how many days till christmas." it says "I love the holidays and only (insert number) days left until christmas." Kiddo puts an ornament in every day. Let me tell ya when it hits about day 9 or 10 and you haven't gotten shit done you need to get done, you are ready to chuck the thing out the door. But I still love it.
This is a few more reindeers. That rudolph sings the song. The blue and white moose is "mark the moose" he sings a song, rings his bell, and dances. Of to the right of him is an old fashioned wood santa music box, and a santa on dashers back that sings a song.
This was that cute polar bear I was talking about yesterday.
This little cute penguin lights up with fiber optics all around his bad self and his ornaments on his christmas tree.
This is my little Chris Mouse. He says the Night before Christmas story, in the cutest little voice.

This pic is actually something my mother in law gave me that I like. Just think the little girl feeding the birdie is so sweet

This was my very first angel decoration I got after I was married. She is originally a music box. You can wind her up. But all those innards have long since fell out. Gigantor wanted me to throw her away and I refused. She doesn't need a music box to still look beautiful.

And here are just a few more of my many reindeer. I love this laying down one, she is so sweet.

I hope you guys enjoy sharing these as much as I enjoy showing them. I have just a few more I will upload this week. Then if any of you are interested. I actually have some pictures of my muts and of my monkey butt pillow. hehehehehe

Have a good Wednesday everyone!!!!

Tuesday, December 04, 2007

Whooohooo I made some pics work.

Yayyyyyyyyy I'm so happy, I took a few pictures with a new little digital camera that Captain Daddy got me, and although the pics are rather grainy, I was able to download them onto blogger. hehehehe

Just wanted to share some of my Christmas decorations with ya. This by no means is all of them.

This first one is my singing penguins. They sing "Baby It's Cold Outside" and sway they hips. Behind them, the back of the santa, he's really a remote control, you squeeze his hand and the lights on the tree will turn on or off.

This is my nativity scene that I just LOVE. I had always wanted a nice one, not the cheesey one piece one's. I actually found this one at a hardware store on clearance. The little reindeer laying down in the front is actually my very first reindeer. Gigantor got it for our first Christmas together. It's the thing that started my reindeer obsession/craze/collecting. heheheh

This is a little lighted cabin, and a tree with deer that was my mom's. She just loved this, so weather it went with my decore or not, it went up. hehehe

This is part of my "rudolph" collection. I have a few more, but as you can see I have Rudolph, Clarise, Yukon, Santa, Fred? (the snowman) and the bumble. I also have a snowbaby on rudolph, and a cherished teddy looking at rudolph through the mirror. The polar bear in the back is so cute, you can't see it, but a tiny snow man kid is on his back riding him.

This is just a few more of my reindeer. I have more pictures but blogger wouldn't let me load more than 5. hehehe

Thanks for sticking with me with this. I have tons more, and it was probably boring, but I was so excited to get the pictures up on blogger. hehehehe

In other news, I burnt my finger. On the stupid popcorn bag. I have a fricken blister. hehehehe

Okay I'm off to read blogs and eat more popcorn.

Have a good Tuesday all!!!!

Good Weekend

We had a pretty good weekend!! Very productive....

On Friday night we finished decorating the tree. Captain Daddy was down for a while, but he went home cuz he wasn't feeling well. Saturday he felt like crap and stayed in bed.

Saturday Gigantor went to work till almost noon. I did get to sleep in. Then we had a breakfast for lunch and watched a t.v. program. Right after we went to the new General Dollar store that opened up. I found a frame, a little goodie for Kiddo, and a gift for the Avon Christmas party. It's an animated tree that sings rocking around the christmas tree. It was only 5 dollars which was the gift limit.

We grabbed some cup cakes from walmart, and came home and cleaned up a bit of stuff. Then we went to the In Laws for dinner. They wanted everyone up at his parents for dinner and to decorate their tree. We got there and one niece and her daughter were there. Nobody else was coming. Kiddo and the other little one decorated the tree. Mother in law made some spaghetti. (ummm that is not one of the recipe's of hers I want)

It was not good people, it was okay I guess, but not good.

Now I have a hard time with tomato sauces. I have to neutralize the acid in the tomato's or it kills me. And I can't stand Prego spaghetti sauce. We use Ragu, of course we really add to it.

She did a jar of Prego and one of Ragu, and she did garlic, but cooked it so hot and long it was burnt and bitter. She cooked some onions so long and hot they disintegrated. Then she boiled the sauce, not simmered, but boiled the sauce for about 40 minutes. She boiled the noodles for over 30 minutes then let them sit in the hot water for another good 15. Ummm we ate more when we came home. hehehehe

Sunday, we got up and had biscuits and gravy for lunch. hehehehe

We then got very busy. We got all the Christmas decorations up in the house. I got a Christmas news letter written out and pictures set up to mail in the cards. We were going to vacuum and then hang lights outside, but we ended up working on the vacuum for over an hour. We finally got it working again. But that means we didn't get lights up outside.

Gigantor has got to do a few things before Thursday. He is going hunting again. He is going to get the lights up, and get the bird cage cleaned, the cooler shut down, and get me some stuff set up for while he will be gone.

Also Captain Daddy's birthday is Wednesday. He said he wanted my spaghetti, cuz he hasn't had "good" spaghetti in over a year he says. So...I'm gonna make a big old pot of the good stuff. hehehehe

Okay I'm off to go read, and then go shower and go to bed. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and have a great Monday!!!

Wednesday, November 28, 2007


I just wanna apologize to my sister. Apparently when I said she used to say some things like that that irritated me (in the last post) I guess I upset her or made her mad.

I didn't mean to do that, cuz she hasn't done that in a long time. I was just so ticked at my mother in law for doing that shit all the dam time. That I vented hard.

I know I upset her too, cuz she always ALWAYS calls me on her way to work, and she didn't.


on a couple side notes. My father in law was at the dinner thing at the sister in laws. And he told us how he jumped all over Kiddo's shit back on thanksgiving. But kiddo didn't tell us he did. FIL jumped on him for getting something to eat at the house we were at, said he didn't ask. Gigantor said, Oh YES HE DID. FIL goes, Oh I didn't realize that. At which point I expected Gigantor to say, well you should check first, and don't yell at our kid about stuff till you know the facts, it's not your place. But Gigantor caved. That old fuck still intimidates him from all the years he beat him. Gigantor could kill this man with one punch now. grrrrrrrrrrr stupid ass in laws.

Of course a dinner with 20 people there, and they didn't have one single drink. That didn't surprise me. They didn't even have enough food, as usual.

Oh and on that last post. I meant pea salad not pee salad. hehehehehe

Hope you all have a better Thursday than I will. I'll be flipping out all day that I upset my sister to the point of her not calling me.


Brain Scramble

I have total brain scramble today. I'm having a hard time keeping track of anything, and my thoughts are all over.

Oh well...I guess we all have those days.

I have an Avon pot luck next week. I dunno what I wanna take. Pasta salad, or pee salad, or what. Suggestions people!!!! Nothing to hard.

My husband told his sister we would come out for a bbq tonight. Her 13 year olds birthday. I have no money to put in a card and no money for a gift. grrrrrr I have 13 bucks till the 8th. And I need medicine so guess where that 13 is going? hehehehe Oh well....I told him I wanna show up, eat and leave. That's what alot of his family does, we are usually last out, cuz we visit and help clean up. Not this time, wanna eat and leave.

I'm really irritated at my mother in law. My sister has a tendency to do the same thing, but she hasn't I'm not irritated with her at the moment. But...when I tell my MIL that my son is sick, she says things like "again??" and "he's sick all the dam time" and "he's sick more often than any kid I know" Well...this got pissing me off. So...I started marking it on the calendar when he was sick. When this time my MIL started in. I whipped out the calendar. I showed her that the last time he was sick was IN JANUARY OF LAST YEAR!!!!! And that most kids, in a school environment, get sick 3 or 4 times a year, and MY SON WAS HEALTHIER THAN MOST KIDS, SO GET THE FUCK OFF MY BACK AND SHUSHHHHHHHHHH. She didn't listen, she heard only what she wanted. I'm gonna start marking down when he's sick now and when she is, or anyone else that says stuff like that, then I'm gonna send them a tally at the end of the year. hehehehe

I'm hungry and don't know what I want to eat right now. I have a choice between peanut butter and jelly, and.....well yeah peanut butter and jelly. hehehehehe

I think I'm gonna go make some lunch and see what trouble I can get into today.

Have a good Hump Day all!!!!!

Better today

I'm doing much better today. They guys both apologized, and acted much better. They were even helpful (insert gasp here)

Yesterday I was busy as hell. I paid a shit load of bills, and I stamped all my avon books. I started addressing some christmas cards. That doesn't sound like a big event, but it is. I address them all, then I go back and make out the out of country one's, then out of town, then in town. I make out a good 80 or more cards a year. So...yeah it's a big thing. I'm about half way through the address book.

Then my avon came in. It was supposed to be in last friday, so I had alot of ladies calling, mad cuz they didn't have their shit.

I did all my avon, got it in bags, went and got the kid at computer club. Then Gigantor came home and we went out delivering books and avon.

I did get my candles from the candle party in. Whooooohooooo now my house will stink purty.

It's finally cooled down here. We have had temps that were 15 to 20 degrees above normal. But BAM now we are below freezing and barely get up in the 40's during the day, which is more like the weather for this time of year.

Anybody sick of turkey yet?? Amazingly, Gigantor and I are not. We had 4 different thanksgiving dinners, and then leftovers here for a couple days. Now I barely have enough left for a couple sandwiches and we are sad. Oh well, my candied yams, and carrot raisin salad ran out long ago.

I love that carrot raisin salad!! I eat so much of it, that is all I poop for days. shredded carrot and raisins. They don't even digest, cuz I eat so much. hehehehe I know I know TMI Deal with it people!!!

Okay I'm off to drink coffee, eat popcorn and read blogs.

Have a good Tuesday all!!!

Sunday, November 25, 2007


Red cuz I'm angry today.

Why do 11 year old little boys have to turn into the mouthiest and biggest back talking brats????

Why do husbands have to egg on the boys, and then be just as mouthy and back talking????

I'm gonna kill the whole lot of them I tell ya.

Have a good start to your Monday all!!!!

Friday, November 23, 2007

That Effing Bird!!!!

Today had a couple, well a few mishaps. Got up and made a couple more pies. Made one of the salads. Realized Gigantor didn't get some stuff down I asked him repeatedly. Had to send Kiddo hiking up the counters into cupboards to get them.

Went to make the other salad, the poofoo. Now poofoo is a tub of whip cream, mixed with a box of cherry jello powder, then mixed with a tub of cottage cheese, then a can of pineapple chunks drained. Kiddo is helping me make it, and he tears open the cottage cheese and I YANK HIM AWAY RIGHT AS HE GOES TO DUMP IT!!!! There is all sorts of green shit in the cottage cheese. GREEN SHIIIIITTTTTT!!!! I got looking closer and Gigantor had gotten me cottage cheese with chives. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

When your making the poofoo, the jello powder sets up, so you gotta get it all mixed in and in the fridge at a good pace. Yup it was all set up by the time I got the other cottage cheese. I was able to smooth it out and finish it up. But dam that was close. I don't think chives and cherry go together. hehehehe

Then Gigantor was either supposed to be off work, or take a break and help me get the turkey in. At 1. not 1:15 not 1:16 but at 1. That way at the very latest we would be eating at 6.

That man yelled at me. Oh yes and he paid dearly for that, and he got the bird in at 2.

At 5 this evening here is our conversation.

Me--is it done?
M--did you check?
G--yes the thingie isn't popped up
M--did you check the leg??
G--no!! the fucking thingie isn't popped up.
M--Don't fucking cuss at me, wiggle the fucking leg, see if it's fucking done, cuz the fucking poppie thingie might be fucking broke.
G--No I don't wanna, the red thingie isn't popped out.

at this time I get up grumbling that I will check the fucking leg. Some pushing insues, some more, get the hell out of my ways, some slamming of the oven, and an entire can of yam juice exploding on the floor, then massive laughing.

Me--Just check the bitches leg, what the hell is your problem??

He grumbles about how he's not gonna check the leg cuz the red poppie thingie isn't popped out yet, then he proceedes to open the oven every 5 flipping minutes to check it. Letting the heat out.

Me--shut that god dam oven, for piss sake are you a dumb ass by choice or birth??
G--Well I'm waiting
M--your letting the heat out, it's gonna take longer, it's already fricken 6!!!
M--take it out and put tin foil over it the thingie might pop up cuz sometimes they are broke or retarded.
G--god woman I'll check the fucking leg!!!

He opens the oven and wiggles the leg, and it's so done and so tender that the leg just comes off. Yup, slides right off, and meat starts falling off the bone.

Me--she you dip shit!!!! See!!!! I fucking told you!!!! We could be eating right now!!!! My father and son, and myself are all starving to death!!!!!
G--for god sake the thingie isn't popped out!!!!!

and he puts it back in the oven


I take it out and throw tin foil over it, and we make the gravy. I take the tin foil off and scream.


Yup that bird made us insane today. We didn't eat till almost 7 fricken thirty. But it was so good, and we all really obscenely stuffed ourselves. We hadn't done that at any of the other dinners, but this one we did. I'm gonna go waddle to bed I think, and try to fall asleep.

It's a good kind of miserable though.

Hope you all had a great Friday.

2 down 2 to go.

Well two dinners down, and two to go.

On Wednesday we went to my friends (the one that lost her dad) They did a big dinner. Couple things I wasn't used too. They had no cold side dishes (but I did take a carrot raisin salad), And the stuffing was way way wet, like you easterners do it. Us westerners make a rather dry stuffing. But it was still good. But no deviled eggs. What kind of holiday meal has no deviled eggs???

Tonight we went to my husbands, sisters, husbands parents house. pant pant, that was a mouth full. There was about 20 of us, from their family and my our side there. It was pretty nice though. Turkey, ham, stuffing, mashed taters, candied yams, rolls, fruit salad, deviled eggs, about 15 veggie trays, and then the pies. I made a pumpkin and a cream cheese pie. And they had a chocolate pie, coconut cream, apple and mincemeat. Plus they had tons of candies and fruit out everywhere. Now that is a family that knows how to cook for a crowd. Also they had plenty of drinks for everyone. I got to Gigantors families get togethers, and there is 20 to 30 people and no drinks. EVER. I've never had a function at my in laws where they have had drinks.

Tomorrow I am making a small turkey, small carrot raisin salad, small poofoo, small candied yams, some rolls, small plate of deviled eggs, and pies. Just for us and Captain Daddy. That way we have a few leftovers.

Saturday my aunt and uncle want us over, they will have my cousin and her husband, and my aunts parents and brother, and Captain Daddy. They asked me to bring mashed potatoes, and poofoo, so I will make big batches of those. I asked about candied yams and they weren't gonna have any, so I said I would bring some, and again, everyone forgot deviled eggs, so I will take a couple or three dozen of those.

All in all, it's been a great thanksgiving weekend so far. Haven't gotten to depressed about missing mom, and I thought it would be real bad with what happened last week.

And I have a that fricken sinus infection, and I had to take Kiddo to the doctor yesterday, he has one also. grrrrrrrrrr

I hope you all had an amazing thanksgiving.

Have a good Friday all!!!!

Monday, November 19, 2007

If I could make a sick face it would go here.....

That's right, I'm sick. I started feeling a bit icky the day before the memorial, and by Sunday I was pretty sick. I went to the doctor this afternoon. Yup...another sinus infection. I got some heavy antibiotics. I hope it really starts kicking in by Wednesday.

The memorial went okay, I think it helped them to hear from some of his friends. I even got up and told a little story that I remembered. Everyone said I did a great job on the food. We didn't get home till about 1 or 2 and then I crashed on the couch till almost 6.

We have four fricken thanksgivings to do. hehehehe My friend really wants us to eat with them and really wants my dad there. So...they are doing there's on Wednesday. So...we are going over there. Thursday, we are having dinner with Gigantor's parents. (blech) Friday we are doing a small dinner here. And Saturday we are doing a dinner with my aunt and uncle. gahhhhhhhhh What a busy week again... I think I need more drugs. hehehehe

I'm gonna try and catch up with everyone soon.

I do have one thing to ask. I start making out my Christmas cards on Thanksgiving holiday. I have a few people's address. Like Jules, Flake, Cookie, Phoenix, Aza, Miranda....I would love to send you a card if you would like to lend your addy. I will send mine to whoever wants too. I will NOT give out your addy to anyone else, and I will NOT stalk you unless you ask really nice. hehehehe

If anyone would love a christmas card from little old (ha ha @ little) me, then please send your addy to my e-mail, I'll delete it as soon as I use it, and not send it to anyone else. addy is

I'm gonna go take some more drugs and go to bed. My head hurts. Hope you all have had an okay week, weekend, and good Monday.

Home Stretch and Thanks

Oh everyone, I can't thank you enough!!! I can't, your words were so kind and touching. I think we are in the home stretch of dealing with the funeral kind of stuff. Then it's going through his things, and legal matters, which I can't help with to much. I'll still be there for support though.

Wednesday was a living, walking nightmare. There was lots of crying, there was her talking about finding him, talking about it A LOT!! Then there came the major break down. She started screaming, and yelling she wanted to go home, she hated everyone that was making her stay, she hated the place, she hated her family. It's just an emotion she had to get out, she broke down hard after that, and all we could do was hold her. Her brother held her and cried with her. Then later her brother held on to me and cried and cried, and begged for strength.

I was so exhausted on Wed night, I didn't know how I would make it. But Thursday I got back over there, and was with them when they met with the minister. They needed mine and D (yup our friend D, he is their friend also) to be a presence. They decided on a memorial time. Saturday at 10 in the morning.

Today, she sounded tons better. I didn't go over till the afternoon, they wanted to rest in the morning. Good thing too, the neighbor lady brought her cleaning lady over and they attacked the house. (her dad had it in such a major mess, and she felt so over whelmed)

I picked up her 5 year old, and took off with him. (they had to meet with the lawyer about the will) We went and got Gigantor, picked up Kiddo, went and got milkshakes and tater tots, went to the post office, then went to the grocery store. I got a couple very masculine looking set of flowers. I got daisy's that are a brownish orange in the middle and yellow on the outsides of the petals, and I got some mums that are yellow in the middle and brownish orange on the outsides. I'm gonna put them up by the food tables.

Found out that she wanted a luncheon. Pastor only wanted to have deserts. I was determined to make her happy. I took charge of the food. I put the word out for food, I bought stuff for 5 dishes. Yup I said 5. gaaaahhhh

I have little smokies (smoked cocktail sausages.) in the crock pot covered in bbq sauce, a pasta salad, that has the multi colored pasta cork screws, with onion, olive and red pepper and ham (usually it's cheese, but she's lactose intolerant) so ham and a raspberry vinagrette. I also have two platters full of a variety of cookies, and two platters full of some fruit, slicked oranges, honeydew, pineapple, and grapes, and two trays with crackers on them, and one big tray with cheese and meat. We also got the local water guy to donate two big 5 gallon bottles and a table top dispenser, and we got a drink dispenser, and some punch concentrate.

I took her little one back and went and picked up paper plates, cups, napkins. D came over and started helping me with food stuff, as I was cutting up, he was putting foil on about every disposable platter and cookie sheet I own. Gigantor still wasn't home from work. We scarffed some sandwiches down. When gigantor got here, I had finished cutting everything for the pasta salad, and I had started arranging the crackers on the platters. I arranged the cookies. D was on covering duty. We cut up the fruit, and mixed the pasta salad.

Finally 11 at night we are done with that, and Kiddo is tucked in bed. Gigantor just now headed to the store to get the flatwear we need and the punch concentrate. He then has to load all the non perishables in the suburban. Water, dispensers, extension cords, duct tape, scissors, all sorts of stuff. Because Gigantor has to work tomorrow morning, he goes in about 5 and hope he is gonna get off by 9. D is gonna come over about 8 and help me finish loading up. We are leaving here 8:30 gonna be up to the church by 9 to set up tables and food.

I am so fricken tired, but I wouldn't be anywhere else but helping my friend. Once you are my friend, you are stuck with me. hehehehe so feel warned people.

OOO update, Gigantor called from the store, they have no concentrate for punch. I'm gonna have to pack gallon jugs of juice. I think I will add some lemon lime soda, that would taste good.

Okay well it's gonna be between midnight and 1 before I can get in bed, and I need to get up by 7 at the very latest so I can put on some nice clothes and makeup.

I hope you all have a good weekend, and please continue to keep that family in your prayers, it's still gonna be real hard, especially tomorrow.

Prayers Please

I might not be on blogs for a while. I won't be able to read or post.

I got a call this morning from one of my old school best friends. Well her husband called. Her and I are still friends. She was in town taking care of her father after he had a shunt put in. He is a sick man, kidney failure, high blood pressure, diabetes, and now the shunt put in.

Well her husband called me to tell me that her father shot and killed himself last night.

Apparently my friend and her 2 year old were still here taking care of him. Her husband and 5 year old had gone back home to get back to school (he's a teacher) And she couldn't find her dad yesterday afternoon. She had the entire neighborhood out looking for him.

Finally about 6 last night, she called the police. They came and said, well lets search the back yard again. (thinking maybe he fell and knocked himself unconscious where they couldn't see) So they are going through the back yard. And my friend goes--That garden shed shouldn't be open, I locked it. And before the officer could get there, she had stepped over and opened it up. With her 2 year old in her arms.

And her father was in there.

I spent the entire day over there. I had Gigantor clean up the shed. The police said the family had to do it. Gigantor was on the fire dept and an E.M.T. for years, that was his job. So...I had him go take care of it.

We got home late tonight, and I am thinking I will be up there each day. Making sure if they need anything, helping where I can. Making sure her and the kids eat. Her husband and her brother have been running all over taking care of things, so someone needs to take care of her.

I hope to be back soon, with more gooder news.

Please keep her and her brother in your prayers. They are not doing good at all, they are really in a bad place emotionally right now.

Thank you everyone, you all are great.

Good Luck still there

Remember the charity dinner I went to, and won all that shit??? Well I guess my good luck is holding.

My sister in law held a candle party last night. I went of course. Her and my niece had given me a 20 dollar gift certificate back on my birthday. So...I wanted to use that. The candles are a bit expensive, but OMG they smell soooo good.

It's called Gold Canyon candles. They are a company here from Arizona. Last few candles I got, I burned them down till the wicks disappeared, then I put them on a candle warmer thing. And got another 3 to 6 weeks worth of scent out of that tiny bit of wax. So...i think I got my moneys worth.

Now they had this cute door prize for whoever spent the most at the party. Some of they ladies there I recognized, and they had/have lots of money. I guess they only got one candle a piece or something, maybe two. Cuz they told me I spent the most.

I said, well use my total after you take the 20 off, so it's fair, and they said I still spent the most. hahahaha I only spent 30 bucks after the 20 was off, but ordered me 4 candles. whooohooo

So...I got this really cute snowman thing. Then I told them I would hold a party also. So I got a little bag, and it had a reindeer thing in it. And I collect reindeer. whooohooooo lol

The big highlight of the evening. Is how stupid and insensitive my brother in law can be. He does taxidermy. That's making the deer heads and stuffed dead animals people. So...instead of waiting till all the ladies leave. He proceeds to start boiling heads. They have to boil them to get all the flesh and meat and stuff off of the skulls, so he can work with them.

So...yeah that was a great smell to walk through to get to our cars. Smelled just like the slaughter house I took a tour of when I was in 4-H when I was a kid.

Anyhow that was my exciting Monday. I would love that kind of luck with lottery tickets. hehehehe

Hope you all had a good Monday, and continue to have a good Tuesday everyone!!!

Happy Verterans Day

I just wanted to say GOD BLESS OUR VETERAN!!!!!! each and every one of them.

Yes my husband, father, and grandfathers are all veterans. So....maybe I'm a bit more passionate than some about this day.

I just want us all to think about them enlisting and even fighting for our country, our freedoms. For others that are being highly abused. It takes a special someone, and they all deserve our thanks, love and respect.

Holy Hell, where did my Saturday go??

I'm wondering where exactly my Saturday went.

Yesterday I pick Kiddo up from school. Skinny K was gonna come over and play. They informed, not asked me that his birthday is Monday so he was staying the night. I would have gotten mad at them informing me. But Kiddo had asked him and he had already asked his mom. Who didn't know that I didn't know about it.

So...I bring him home. Now these two boys together are so dam hyper, like the cartoons of Daffy duck, when he would pogo stick around doing the whoohoo whoohoo whooohooo thing.

They were hyper and driving me nuts. I hadn't yelled that much in a very long time. So...I load them both up at about 6:30 and we go get Skinny K's clothes and sleeping bag, then we drove on down to Sonic and got some dinner.

We came home and ate, and they got a bit better. I was going to let them stay up till 10 or so, being the weekend. I was out here working on the computer and at about 9:20 Kiddo sneaks into the bathroom and puts on his lounge pants. Then they announce that they are going to bed.

Well I had to stay up and make sure I got the dogs out one more time. I let them back in about midnight, and the cat darts in. I try to get him out, and he keeps hiding from me. So I threatened that if he asked to go out before morning I would kill him.

Yup...between Kiddo sleep walking, and the fricken cat and the dogs, I didn't get all the way in bed and asleep till about 3 in the morning.

This morning when the boys got up I threatened them with death if they weren't quiet, cuz I needed some sleep. They played Risk in the living room, then they went out and played on the trampoline. Skinny K's mom called to say they would be over to pick him up. I hadn't even gotten my ass out of bed. It was only 9 so not so bad.

I got dressed, Kiddo and I ate some lunch, and watched Extreme Makeover home edition, and then I had to do my avon that came in night before. I just now got a break, and it's almost 4 in the afternoon. ahhhhhhh

We will see what happens tomorrow. If it's any quieter, or laid back.

Hope you all had a great Saturday.

Dang it is chilly this morning. I'm used to Gigantor getting up at 4 in the morning and turning the heat up. So it's not warm, but chill is cut out of the air when we get up. But we had to do it this morning. hehehehe

He did get out of here okay yesterday. He did forget to help me with one thing, and he didn't get the hand gun out for me. I'm gonna have to see if I can hike over his pile of junk to the gun cabinet and get it. He also forgot his hiking boots. Moron. lol He wanted to go buy the store and buy a whole nother pair.

I was irritated. His one pair is brand new. Not my fault he forgot them. I don't have money to go around blowing on his dam shoe habit (he's worse than a dam woman) He has like work boots, hiking boots, tennis shoes, taekwon do shoes, workout shoes, three pairs of cowboy boots, and two pairs of slippers. I have one pair of shoes I wear, (can't wear fancy sandals anymore with my leg issues) and I have two pair of slippers. That's it.

So he was mad I wouldn't let him buy a new pair. I told him to suffer with his tennies. He did call me later and apologize. Lucky for him. hehehe

I don't have much else to really gab about today, so I'm gonna leave you with a fun little thing.

Let me know what planet you are.

Have a good Friday everyone!!!
