I haven't posted in a long time. I appoligize for that. Been a busy and icky week. Kid called me from school on monday he was in so much pain.
Took him to the doctor, he had a double ear infection and a sinus infection.
Lots of calls back and forth with dad's insurance and my insurance on a medical thing.
Friday, woke up coughing, Gigantor sick as a dog. Gigantor caught what kiddo had, and he refuses to go to the doctor, he might go tomorrow when he has to work a 10 hour day feeling like crap. hehehehehe
I am a bit snuffly, but I got that dam dry cough again. The one I had for 5 weeks straight last summer. I think I'm fighting it off, or at least I'm hoping.
But I'm very wary, cuz I have never not gotten sick when everyone else in the house is. I'm expecting to get it. And end up at the doctors again. ugggghhhh
Well...I'm gonna go, took some meds early and they are kicking in, so I want to go try to get some sleep.
Hope you all have a good monday.

16 years ago, on April 21st. I found myself in Norfolk Virginia visiting you. You were still in the Navy. You said again, you wanted to do it for the extra money and insurance, and we would do a formal one later.
In the bedroom of the rented run down house you shared with sometimes 2 and sometimes up to 7 other Navy guys, I got dressed in my new dress. It was white, both sleeves off the shoulder, it had huge colorful tropical flowers on it.
You got dressed in your dress blues. We asked for directions to the court house in Norfolk. No family, no nobody there, we were going to take a taxi.
When your three closest friends in the Navy surprised us. They were outside, all in their dress blues, waiting to take us in Pat's big purple clunker of a car. They drove us to the court house. Keith showed up with a small bunch of flowers, and handed them to me. I gave a shy smile. I had only met these three guys 4 days previous.
You and I went inside and filled out all the paperwork, and walked down a long hallway to a room. The Justice's name was Rufus. I will never forget the little short, very old, balding, thick glasses man that had a voice and demeanor of the kindest preacher.
Your three friends followed us in. Rufus said, I'm sorry, these rooms are so small only family can come in. At which point Rick said "We are their family, besides we are in the wedding party"
Rufus looked at us weird, you nodded and smiled. As we stood up in front of him, he asked if we had rings. I took off my engagement ring, because we hadn't even bought wedding rings yet. I handed it to you so you could put it back on my finger.
Rick announced that he was the best man, Keith announced he was the maid of honor and Pat announced that he was the flower girl. Rufus smiled and nodded with understanding.
We were both so nervous and sweating, he even gave us a couple nice bible verses. In all of 10 minutes it was over, and we had to finalize the paperwork. We were married. We had done it. We had completely pissed our families off too. It was hell on earth informing both of our families afterwords that we were married.
Yes I came home 5 days later, and continued to plan our "big" wedding. We had a proper preacher, the proper flower girl, and ring bearer, the white dress, the suit, the dinner and dancing after, as we renewed our vows.
But I will never ever forget, those three kind young men, that dressed up to the hilt, after just barely meeting me. That stated they were our family and in our wedding party. That took us out to eat later, and all went to sleep on the ship that night to give us the house to ourselves. We never asked them, they had huge hearts. They made April 21st very special for me and for you.
And even though it was hard to leave you, and the parents were very pissed off at us for a long time. I would still do it all over again in a heart beat.
My Dear Husband!!! I love you more today than yesterday! I still get a thrill and butterflies as you walk in the door after work every day!! I'm excited when you call me just because. Snuggling with you is still the best thing in the world.
I love the son you helped us get, that we struggled so hard for. I love how dedicated you were to the process. How much you supported me through everything, and how we have made the most beautiful and most loved creature on the planet.
I love how you have been my rock and stood by me through so much. It started with the death of my two best friends Star and Buck. It went through three surgeries, tons of infertility, losing a job, losing some friends, losing my sister to another state, and finally losing my mom. You have never been more strong than when I have needed you. You have been strong enough to take care of me, and make the boogey man go away, and gentle enough to hold me and sob with me when I'm at my lowest. You have given me the privilege to be with you on your hard times. Finding out horrid things from the past, and still standing strong at your side, being with you through two surgeries and one air evac out of town.
And now you stand by me and help me and love me through all this I'm going through now. You have made arrangements to help or find help for me when I need it. You've taken over alot of the physical burden, and you still love and long for me. It can not make a woman feel more special or more loved than when their husband, lusts after them at their complete lowest.
I'm looking forward to another 16 years, and hope I still remember Rufus, Rick, Keith and Pat. They will forever be locked away in a special place in my heart. A place that sealed us onto this path of walking together through all of lifes obsticals. And yes in our case it's more like riding crazy rapids on a shit river. But it's been one hell of a ride, and full of love and laughter. I don't think I could ask for a better man.
And until god creates a man that doesn't fart and laugh about it, or that it doesn't smell bad enough to clear the room of even the animals, then I am convinced I have one of the few bestest estest men in the entire world.
I love you with everything I have, More than you will ever know, and always and forever!!!

Well I haven't posted all dang week. Haven't had anything to say. I'm so dam boring.
The temp major dropped here. It's fricken freezing again.
Kiddo was sick today, kept him home. He's gonna try to go to school tomorrow, cuz he wants to go play at Skinny K's.
I thought since I didn't have much to say, I would post two awards I got. The top one was from Dirty Laundry blog, and the bottom one was from Miranda's blog.
I don't like picking just 5 people to get awards, I really don't think that is fair when you think there is much more than 5 that are deserving.
So...the top one is for any mom out there that is like me. Loves laughing and having fun at your childs expense. hahahahaha My son is always good for a crack up. To him saying "oh yeah baby" at Alice on Twilight, to him saying "OMG MOM MY POOP IS BLUE!!!!"
Yup, he is good for tons of laughs.
The second award, I think if you read my blog and have stuck with me through all the shit through all the years, then you are very deserving. So..you just click and capture that little baby and post it on your blog from little ole me. hehehehe
Hope you all have a great weekend. I'll be checking in.

Oh man what a busy 3 days, well 5 days for me. I am so sore today, so very very sore, and hurting.
I'm used to going out and about a day or maybe two a week. I went out and did lots of physical things for the past 5 days. Now I'm hurting. lol
Few things that happened in last 5 days. 2 doctor appointments.....buy stuff for trailer for dad....getting his trailer re set up back on the pad....going to three stores....getting avon in....class for the boys....going to the movie....paying bills.....cleaning the house.....Kiddo's friend spending a night.....Big ass easter dinner on Sunday. I'm so tired, and sore.
We had a great easter, I hope you all did.
We watched some movies this weekend again. Went to Race to Witch Mountain. Oh my gosh it was soooooooo good!!!!!
We then watched a movie from netflix. Babylon A.D. With Vin Diesel. It was okay but not what we were expecting.
Then Kiddo got three movies for Easter. He got Tales of Desperoux (spelling) The Day the Earth Stood Still and Bedtime Stories. We watched Bedtime Stories last night. That was a very very good movie!!!!
Anyhow, hope you all are having a great Monday, and I'll be checking in soon.

First of all that cartoon makes me snort. That is so darn funny.
I have another very busy two days. So much to do, before I can even think about easter dinner. It was going to be a nice quiet dinner for three. Now I have a dinner for 7 that has to be done at 2 in the afternoon.
I'm not complaining. I love having people over that have no place to go for the holidays. Especially if they are family and friends.
I just wanted to wish you all a very happy Easter. I hope it's full of blessings and peace.
May none of you get a rotten egg. hehehehehee
Have a great weekend and an even better easter everyone!!!!

Well we are working through the week. Thank you everyone for your well wishes for my dad.
He had a guy down this morning so he can get a written estimate. Hopefully we can start getting things fixed up soon.
We hadn't planned much for easter. Kiddo is to old for an egg hunt. But he asked if he could still dye the eggs. Well of course I love to dye eggs too, so why not. hehehehe
Then we were gonna make a late lunch early dinner thing. So....Linner. For easter, cuz daddy has to work at 6 that evening.
Yesterday asked the aunt and uncle if they had plans and they said no, so we said they were coming over for dinner. Now I have to kick my butt and clean my house. hahahahaa At least the kitchen/dinning room.
So...we have a busy weekend set. Tomorrow go to walmart and both other grocery stores. Help dad maybe get jacks and his trailer set back up. Do up a couple easter gifts for my friends two little kids. Deliver them, and get my avon. Do up my avon order, get some dinner made, and the boys go to martial arts class.
Saturday we need to clean up inside the house. And or help dad with the trailer, and get some prep work done for dinner the next day. Deliver avon and books, and then color eggs. We also wanted to try and go to the matinee at the theater, but not sure we are gonna make that one.
Then sunday, just up and working on getting dinner going, so that we can eat early, and do any last minute cleaning. Give our own kid his easter basket. Even though he doesn't want to egg hunt, doesn't mean he shouldn't get an easter basket. Probably have a couple yum yum's in it and a movie or two. He wants Desperaux and Bedtime Stories. So...that is probably what will happen.
Anyhow, hope you have a good couple days. I'm gonna try to post again before easter, got another good easter funny to show everyone. heheheheheh
Have a good Thursday all!!!

First of all, that picture is so dam funny it makes me fart when I laugh.
Now on to the reason of the title about my weekend.
Saturday, I was sleeping in. Gigantor took Kiddo down to the IDPA shoot. It's combat shooting practice. They usually have a police officer doing it. It was their first time, and Kiddo did very well. He did the double shots right in the main body mass on all the targets. Well one he got in the head, but that doesn't minus points.
Okay so they are on their way home from that, and the idler pully in the suburban froze up and busted the belt then the pully busted all apart. Gigantor was able to coast into where my dad lived, and used his car and went to Checker auto, they said they didn't have the parts but Car Quest did. So he goes to Car Quest, and they had the wrong pulley, so then he's off to Napa. He gets the pulley back in and realizes he has the wrong belt, so goes back to car quest. Turns in the other belt, and they don't have the right one, so back to Checker.
He came hom 3:30 and none of us had even eaten that day yet. So...yeah we bought some taco's. Dinner was a small sandwich later. lol
So...we stay up watching movies, and such. Go to bed. I'm sitting in bed, and got sucked into a movie, so I stayed up and watched it. Turned out the lights to go to bed at 3 in the morning. The phone started ringing at 4 in the morning.
I grab it, thinking someone is dead.
Me: Hello (loud and breathless)
Voice on other End: Is this (enter first and last name)
Me: Yes it is.
voice: this is officer so and so from the Police dept
(I thought maybe he was outside and something was wrong)
Officer: Do you still own the trailer down in the KOA at space **
Me: Well it's actually my dad's but my name is one it.
(my heart is beating fast now. I'm thinking OMG it's fucking burned down, or they found my dad dead inside)
Officer: Well there has been an inncodent.
Me: What happened??? (I'm almost in major panic moad now. Gigantor is up getting dressed, and asking what what? cuz he can see my face and hear my voice)
Officer: Well someone came around the corner at the back and hit your dads trailer and knocked it off the pad.
Me: (so relieved that it didn't burn down and dad not dead) OH GOOD!!
Officer: Pardon me?
Me: Then that means my dad is okay. He's at work.
Gigantor went down there and met with another officer. One that makes my Giant look like a fricken midget. This guy is HUGE to say the least. They look at the trailer.
My dad lives at the very back of the trailer park, so he's sorta out of the way not bugging anyone. Well there is a corner on the street right out front of him to turn around the trailers facing his. This guy in a truck came whipping around that corner at 50 plus mph (parks speed limit is 5mph) And his truck fish tailed and the back end smacked into my dad's trailer, the tongue of it, thank goodness.
But....BUT he was going so fast and hit it so hard that it threw the trailer over 6 feet. Broke all the jackes underneath it, and flung 2 of the propane bottles down the road and the other 100 gallon bottle that was chained to it, whipped so hard it got lodged beneath the trailer.
Luckily a lady a few trailers down and behind heard it, and looked out and saw the truck, then her husband ran over and turned off all the propane. And she called the police.
Other very lucky thing, is as the HUGE officer and Gigantor were standing there talking, low and behold a truck fitting that description starts pulling down the street. HUGE cop goes and steps in front of it, and asks them if they were involved in an incident earlier. Driver denied it. HUGE cop walked around the truck, and their right back end was fucked!!! and parts of their truck all over where my dad's trailer is. So...he goes, back and goes, wanna tell me again.
Passenger says, Yeah he hit the trialer. The passenger is the one that owned the truck, and luckily had insurance. The driver got arrested for hit and run, and DUI and reckless driving and excessive speed.
So...now we are waiting on police report to get to the insurance and we have to try and find quotes from somewhere, and there are NO rv places here, sales, repair, nothing.
Anyhow, that was our weekend, we are still tired as hell, we were up all night sat/sun and all day sunday, and from stress up most of last night.
Hope you all had a better weekend.

First of all check out the picture of the super hero that me and Kiddo made. He helped me make one of myself. It's the Venom Vixen. hahahahaha
Man, crazy ass day. Stupid ass wind. IHATETHEWIND!!!!!!
The wind started blowing like a crazy bitch last night. Knocking things over, shaking the house, loud as hell. Then it got real hot in the house, I had to turn the window unit cooler on. I kept watching the clock. Guess when I fell asleep real good. I dozed off at 5 this morning, till about 6:30 Then I didn't fall asleep again till about 7:50, but got woken up at 10.
Gigantor was working on an online application last night. He continued to work on it this morning. For two or three hours, did a good 2 hours last night.
The guy showed up to fix my ice maker on my fridge, better yet, he just replaced it. Cost 159 bucks. But that's much better than I thought.
Captain Daddy came over and had Gigantor cut his hair then he did laundry. He had mentioned last night about buying dinner, but then he bailed about 5:30. So...we were left going. Ummmmm huhhhh?? So...yeah we did a bad thing and got drive thru.
Gigantor worked another hour or two through the day on that application thing. I still don't think it's done, but I think it's close. I have his paper work strewn all over the computer desk and my avon stuff and the table, as he's been looking for everything. (the application is to move up a possition at the dam he's at now.)
The wind blew so crazy all day and they said it's gonna blow even crazier next couple days. Good grief. A huge snow storm just moved through south of us. Like blizzard like snow storm.
Anyhow not much else to say, hope you all enjoy the weekend.

Oh my gosh I am so hating the wind. It's been blowing for 2 weeks straight. Not like breezy blowing. But like 30mph or more sustained, and up to 60 and 70 mph gusts. I am so sick of it it's not even funny.
Hate the wind!!!!!! It sucks major donkey dick!! I could never live someplace that is windy all year long. I would rather have some rain right now, to water the plants than the wind.
Not a dam other thing is going on here. Nothing at all. Gigantor working, and hating the wind. Kiddo and school, and hating the wind. Me here and hating the wind. hahahahaha
I have been obsessed with hiding easter eggs on facebook though. Only have three people doing it with me (that is in my friends list, which is really small) But it's fun as hell.
Okay well since I'm so interesting and since I'm in a hating mother nature mood. I'm gonna go read blogs and cuss her out some more.
Have a good Wednesday everyone.
