Wait there's more I want you to link to Ronda's Rants and post about Sara's dream...just a minute there's more-when you're at Ronda's blog enter a contest to win an iPod nano! Yes, isn't that great! But more than anything let's help Sara win, so that she can sing her heart out! Don't worry if I haven't explained it thoroughly you'll get all the info here!

One of the reasons I watch Super Bowl!

I'm not sure if this will air, but this is hilarious!

I get to watch the Superbowl this Sunday with my husband and son and 10 of our son's friends! He's 14. He's growing up. We're getting the food tonight. Ladies this really bonds you with your sons especially, so take advantage of the time together.

He might not hang with me, but I'll have to say, the preparations are just as much fun!

Sick Daughter, Clean Room, Rewards to boot...

Yesterday, my third daughter was home from school ill. Actually, she's been home all week and yesterday was the first day that she felt a bit better so naturally we cleaned out her room.

When the oldest lived at home (three years ago) they shared a room. I'm backing up here so that you can follow my train of thought. (not many people can you know)

Ali, the oldest had just graduated, and her Grandmother gave her this beautiful locket. She wore it once. She wore it once, and lost it. She was beside herself.

This brings us to yesterday, cleaning sick daughters room out. You know where I'm headed with this don't you? We found it in all places a jewelry box! Go figure. To be fair it was in Grama Pat's jewelry box (Ric's mom) We have no idea how it got there...this brings us to the picture of Ali with Ric on her graduation day with the locket!

This is sickie Hannah in her room. Isn't she a cutie! Oh yeah, when you clean out a room you also get more bonuses! I found two borders gift cards as well, and I'm using them! Who knows whose they are...I figure I earned them!!

Go to Candid Carrie and check out a lot of great FOTOS because, today IS Friday Foto Finish Fiesta!!

To Maintain A Healthy Level Of Insanity

1. At Lunch Time, Sit In Your Parked Car With
Sunglasses on and point a Hair Dryer
At Passing Cars. See If They Slow Down.

2. Page Yourself Over The Intercom. Don't Disguise Your Voice!

3. Every Time Someone Asks You To Do Something, ask If They Want Fries with that.

4. Put Decaf In The Coffee Maker For 3 Weeks. Once Everyone has Gotten Over Their Caffeine Addictions, Switch to Espresso.

5. In the Memo Field Of All Your Checks, Write
'For Marijuana'

6. Skip down the hall Rather Than Walk, and see how many looks you get.

7. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face.

8. Specify That Your Drive-through Order Is 'To Go'..

9. Sing Along At The Opera.

10. Five Days In Advance, Tell Your Friends You Can't Attend Their Party Because You have a headache.

11. When The Money Comes Out of The ATM, Scream 'I Won! I Won!'

12. When Leaving the Zoo, Start Running toward the Parking lot, Yelling 'Run For Your Lives! They're Loose!'

13. Tell Your Children Over Dinner, 'Due To The Economy, We Are Going To Have To Let One Of You Go..'

And The Final Way To Keep A Healthy Level Of Insanity

Monday, Monday...

Can I talk?

I'm just going to ignore that anyone is reading this and vent. Thanks. Maybe throw a few questions out to ya? I know I said I was going to ignore you, but I changed my mind.

I feel stuck. My feet are firmly glued to the ground and I cannot move. I have so many things I want to get done and accomplish lately, yet i don't do them. Is this a menopause thing? Or maybe...just a me thing? I think the beginning of the year goals are already getting to me. I've realized that I didn't accomplish what I wanted to last year and another year went by! ARGH....I hate that. The fact that I'm such a goal orientated person doesn't help.

I go to bed at night stressing and thinking of what I didn't do instead of what I did do. The problem is I never give myself a break. Let me list what I HAVE to do everyday and then maybe I can prioritize from there.

1. laundry

2. exercise

3. meals

4. cleaning (vacuuming, dusting, bathrooms)

5. overseeing treatments

6. blah, blah blah

You get the picture. You're probably asking what is her problem? I know everyone does the same type of things everyday, plus work... the difference is other people find time to have fun, visit people or go shopping (even if their not buying, their getting out)

The issue is I cannot do something fun until all on my list is complete! It ends up being 9 or 10 at night and theirs no time left!

The fun things I'd like to do and can't find time are-

finish a book

go to the library

paint my bathroom

start a book club (had one years ago, loved it)

That's just a few things, give me suggestions. Please.

What NOT To Give Your Wife For Christmas

Well, well, well.

Look at what my husband bought for me.

Posted by Picasa

How To Raise A Gentleman A Civilized Guide To Helping Your Son Through His Uncivilized Childhood.

* And yes, it is a great book.

* And yes, anyone raising a son should have this on their "must read" list.

* But no, you don't buy this book and give it to your wife and tell her, "Here Hon, I thought this might help you."

I am just grateful that he bought the book with a hard cover. That way when I smack my husband over the head with it he will be reminded not to buy me any more self-help books.

If you really want to help yourself, head on over to Candid Carrie ... her friends can help you laugh at yourself which is a much better form of therapy.
