A beautiful day

I have just learned that a beautiful baby girl was brought in to this world by a very strong mom with the support of her equally strong dad.
I am sure that they are going to be the kind of parents that a child in this world sorely needs.

Finley Rose I wish you health, happiness and much love.

Idiot and tbtine - Job well done and here's to never having a good nights sleep ever again.

God Bless!

Enjoy life!

It would appear that some of the husbands of the friends I have are idiots.

Lets take my friend Mrs. Hockey mom' husband.

I was at a birthday party for a friend of Bud's and the father of said friend says "What makes this cake different from wedding cake". I looked at him as if to say dude what are you taking about?
He then continues and says "what is it about wedding cake that turns off your sex drive?".All the while looking at me.
I looked at him and with out skipping a beat I say "Oh no, it is not the wedding cake. In fact I believe that the sex drive is great until you have us create more people in the world like you, and then you expect us to do all of the work to care for them and you, all the while not being able to go to the gym so that what used to be a size 4 is now a size 14. AND THEN you expect us to like ourselves as a size 14. Now, if you would help out with the children and say to your wife...Hey honey I have a spare couple of hours. I'll take the kids (meaning cook and entertain) and I will clean the house and start two loads of laundry, while you go to the gym and then get a massage; the sex drive may miraculously return after a couple of weeks. Get it!" Jacka$$.

You see as great a friend I have in Mrs Hockey her hubs forgets who he is talking to when he engages me in conversation. I love idiot men. Correction. I love putting idiot men in their place.

Enjoy life!


Congrats to The Idiot and tbtine on their new addition, and YEAH to Auntie Snarx! Nieces are great!

Weekend Blast

As predicted the Spirit of America was truly an amazing event. This first part of the show was re-enactment of the historic wars and it had cannons, horses, amazing song performances, and actors. The second was more contemporary. There were drill performances and marching, music selections from the 70's-today. There were no political views in music selection which made it better. It was a performance by active duty reservists and infantry men and women who serve the army as entertainers. I was pleasantry surprised.

They do not tour on a regular basis and the show is free. If it is in your neighborhood GO. It is worth it.

Bud had hockey Friday, Saturday, and Sunday this weekend. He fell apart on Sunday and I felt bad, but what am I supposed to do? He wanted this, I just hope that they break it up a bit so it is not all three weekend days all the time.

We had the remnant's of Ike in out neighborhood. Man o man those winds were powerful. Granted it was only about 55-58 mph, and we have very minimal damage compared to those in direct contact it was still amazing. We do have power lines down in she surrounding counties and we personally lost power from about 11:00 last night until 8:00 this am. Trees are down and to be honest when trees that are over 150 years old are lost it is a bummer.

Well, all in all it was a busy weekend. Since school has started I am running like crazy!

enjoy life!

Catchn' up

So we began 1st grade and Bud is loving it. Yesterday he fell off the monkey bars and lost his breath. He was very scared. I got the call from the school nurse and he rested there for about 2 hours. He even ate his lunch there.

The best part is that his teacher and the school nurse called me after school and gave me all the detail as to what actually happened. I love his school for caring about the family and the child. He is a boy's boy and he takes hard hits in hockey, but still he is only 6 and had no protective gear on. Unless you count his "super fly" sneakers. He has these Adidas sneakers that Run DMC used to wear in 1980. He loves them!!! There are bruises on his back and they look messy, but he can move up and down, touch his toes, twist and turn. All that and he says I feel ok mommy! Great off to school you go!

He did make the Mite "A" team. That is birth years 00 and 01. Bud is a 12/01 so he is barley there in age, but he made the "A" team which is typically 2nd year Mite kids, and the "B" team is 1st year kids.

I will say he worked really hard. He skated better than I have ever seen him skate during the evaluations. I am a proud of his efforts and he knows it.

So that's all for now. I am going to see the show Spirit of America this weekend. I am really excited, and I will update about it.

enjoy life!
