I took my computer to Mr. LDV for a check up. He basically said that it has a form of herpes. You know kinda like an illness that won't bother you, but also will not go away! The prescription after he gave it the initial dose of computer antibiotics was to keep an eye on it for flare ups and we should be ok. What a great guy!
Now let me fill you in on the cuteness of the LDV children. You walk in and they are both so happy to see you! Not shy or bashful, but genuinely happy to see you. The little round faces of cuteness are all smiles and cheer. My monster goes in to play for a bit. He loves the Thomas the Tank motif in the kids room. Now Mr. LDV says hey don't mind the mess to which I say ummm what mess? I see no mess. I see a house with pictures on the wall that tiny little hands made with love for the LDV family and friends to see. I see happy kids. I see a happy house. Oh yeah, I see Buddha and chica (can't miss them they are so happy to see people too). The cute little round dogs to match the cute little house, with the cute family.
Mrs. LDV has it good! A funny was when the little LDV says to my hubs .Papa Hi Papa. I thought that was hysterical. Only because Bud calls my dad Papa. I guess Hubs is getting old! hee hee hee.
So, by tonight all is going to be well. We will have our computer back and I got a dose of cuteness.
Thanks again Mr. & Mrs. LDV

Tonight is Grey's night so there is nothing going on! I have nothing planned! My good friend LDV dropped me a line and my computer is going to Mr. LDV for a serious inspection. It is very ill and a mean old man wants to erase the hard drive to fix it. Not cool!
I attempted to get pre-sale tix for Trace and it did not work. For some reason we can not access the ticket place. major bummer, but Miss.D is going to check in to it from home and we are going to go together! Woo Hoo!

I was walking down the hall at work and the HR director comes up to me and says "I need to see you right away" (as she walks in to the conference room) I ask if I should close the door and she says "yes". My heart drops to the pit of my stomach. She says "First I would like to apologize on behalf of the company for overlooking your step-mother-in-laws funeral." "I was under the impression that the receptionist had taken care of flowers for that and an behalf of the company I am sorry". side note our receptionist is a ding bat not for this, but because she really is. Anyways, I said that I did not think that the company did things like that for step-in-laws. I was not expecting anything. A card would have been nice, but again, not expected. She said that the company will be making a donation to the American Heart Society in her name (that was Connie's charity of choice) Someone did read the obit. She said that she had no idea that nothing was done until yesterday, and when she found out, took it to the CEO who said that a donation was necessary.
Sometimes people shock the heck out of me and I am not sure how to react. I am one of the people who really expect nothing from other people, and to be honest it lightens the load.

Somewhere in there I have to make time for the hubs and Bud.
I also have to sell Pancake Day tickets and posters.
I also got in the mail a pack of cookies that I have to try exclusively for 5 days then I have to give my opinion, then I will get another pack of cookies to give my opinion, then I get a third pack of cookies.
All that and a bag of cookies. Who could ask for more.

- Found out Trace is coming to town!!!!!!!!
- Megadeath was on the radio as I was going to the grocery store, and instantly I turned in to a teenager. Cranked the volume and rolled down the windows like a fool, but I did not care it was Megadeath.
Whew! My legs are reminding me that I am not meant for two forms of exercise in one weekend and really how outta shape I am.

When my days lived are longer than the ones I have left I want to be able to do this. I want to be the female version of George Burns. This is what is going to help me make it. I do not want to sit in Barbados, or some exotic place waiting for a cabana boy to show up. Just plop me down on a curb with some fun clothes and a gar. Could you imagine how much fun this would be? The real simple life. People might even give me money. Wouldn't that be a hoot.

This is me. This is the mess I have to deal with at work. Now don't let me confuse you in to thinking that I am in the IT department. I am not. I am just dealing with a bunch of shit and everytime I try to fix something there is another component attached that begins and ends like this.
Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results? Yeah I am pretty sure that I am there.

My sister in law called me on Friday night, I was out with the hubs and some friends at a bonfire. It was a load of fun. We also looked at their slides from their 2 week trip to Alaska and it was truly amazing! It makes me want to go. Well she called me again on Saturday morning and my niece needed to talk to me. My 5 year old niece proceeded to tell me that she was going to be a big sister again. My asset brother is once again pro-creating. I have let most of the Sh*& between us go, but I am still holding out for an apology. So there is a "bun in the oven". My brother is actually the last of the C family. It is not like he is a Jr or anything like that. He is the fifth. My dad is CRC the IV my brother is CRC V. If this child is not a boy then he is the last. I really could care less. I love my nieces and just hope for healthy. They will now have to move to a bigger house and get a mini-van. hee hee hee.
- H.E.C.C approved helmet w/ full face shield, chin strap & ear pieces.....check
- colored Internal mouth guard.....check
- neck guard....check
- Shoulder pads....check...check (there is 2)
- Elbow pads....check...check
- Hockey pants....check
- shin guards...check...check
- hockey skates....check....check
- cup w/ supporter...check (not a mommyrox thing)
- ice hockey stick....check (side note wrapped accordingly)
This is how I spent my Saturday. Bud, Papa ad I went to the two area sports stores that sell hockey gear and we bought everything we needed. Even things we did not need. It is going to be great to see him out there in his glory. It was just so much fun seeing him get all dressed in it all. It did hit a stimulation overload at about 6pm Saturday evening. We packed up the hockey bag and he is so ready for his first game/practice. If it is not going to work I will know for sure this year. If it is something that he loves then this is the first step in a long ride.
This is what I learned. When one salesman says "oh yeah it is always a bit snug, if you just cut it here at the top it will come off easier" go to another store. When a child says "no mommy the blue ones fit better than the black ones" and they are the same size clearly fit has not even entered the mind. And lastly...... drum roll please.......when it comes to hockey Bud knows everything and I know nothing. So I have been told.

This is Dog and dogs family.
He and his two sons Leland and Tim have been arrested. They really look like they should have been arrested by the fashion police instead of the real police.
Now I really have no idea why he has been arrested for kidnapping. My hubs loves to watch this show. Why, once again I have no idea. They are these way freakish bounty hunters from Hawaii who pray ("protect us Jesus as we go to get the bad guy") and say they are doing society a favor by "getting the bad guys off the streets". I cannot dispute this. I just think that they are so bizarre. I mean really, I understand tradition and heritage, but yikes people. If I were a criminal I would turn myself in before these folks were to come and get me. I would not run because I did not want to go to jail, I would run to get away from them.
lesson here... stay out of trouble unless you like this guy to touch you. eewww!

You see that big pile of garbage? See the people walking around it as if it is no big deal? That is me, the garbage. Healthy people are milling around as if I do not feel like shit and expecting too much from me today.
Oh yeah that Bucky got caught. Would you believe that it was such news that the local grocery store announced it on the PA while I was shopping.

Here is my message to the world. Take care of your children. Raise them right, and teach them to respect the law!

He is now on the US Marshals 15 most wanted list. I hope they find him soon, and I pray that the rumors that say Indians on the reservation are protecting him are not true, and that the $250,000 reward money goes to the troopers bereavement fund.
sadly I will say
Next, I have been a bad friend to Pearlie. You see Pearlie used to work at the hockey arena as a hot dog cook. She was a retired school bus driver for the inner city. She loved Bud. She would give Bud little trinkets when he was at the game. This past February she go in to a car accident and really never recovered fully. She has moved to Texas to be with her daughter and I have been slacking on writing her letters. Well to be honest I have not written any! When she got in to her accident Bud sent her a cookie basket and we sent her letters, but since she has sent me 7 or 8 letters and I have sent none. My grandma would be so disappointed in me. Well last night I sat and wrote her a 3 page letter. I hope that helps in making up for the fact that I have not written all summer. I think that she is a great lady, and I wish her all the best. I will miss her this year as she has been a fixture at the arena for the past few years.
Next, It was a full moon which would provide some sort of explanation about the leg thing the other night.
Next, Football starts tonight. NY Jets lets go!
lastly, enjoy life

Well, in the middle of this really good sleep my husband wakes me up by fiercely rubbing his hand up and down my left calf. This shocks the heck out of me. I am thinking he has lost all of his marbles. My first thought is well jeesh I know that I need to shave my legs, but this is crazy! Then I told him to stop, and he got out of bed and went to the kitchen, then came back to bed and went back to sleep.
This morning when my hubs gets up I asked him what it was last night that made him rub my leg. He said that he did no such thing. I said you woke me out of a really good sleep and made me talk to you. That is how I know that is was true. He insists that I am making the entire thing up. I am so not crazy! Not only that he is not going to pin this silly act on me with out a good reason, he is not going to win this one. He was laughing about it this morning, but it is still very strange.
Could there be something funky in the stars? There is no full moon. I am perplexed.
Congrats to Mrs. Kate and Mr. Bill on the arrival of Lauren Claire

Hubs "where is the camera?"
Mommyrox "It's in my purse, Why do you ask?"
H " Bud is riding his bike"
M "And you need the camera for that?"
H " The two wheel bike!"
M "NO WAY!"
I had the camera in my purse because on Wednesday he was jumping off the diving board in to the deep end of the pool. I went on my lunch to watch him jump. Now he is riding a "big kid bike" My baby is not a baby anymore. He is officially a big kid. (tear rolling down my cheek). I am amazed at his level of confidence and how much pride he has with this accomplishment.
At least I have one more year before he starts school. Time goes by so fast that I will once again send my love out to all of my peeps. Since it is Labor Day weekend I will not be back until Tuesday, and with that it should be a wet one! Thank you hurricane Ernesto!
