happy feelings

just something I was working on today. That's our fat cat( that nobody ever sees because he hides from everyone but us!!) Last time I weighed him he was 19 lbs!

just playing around tonight and came up with this. I think it turned out cute........but I may just be tootin my own horn! :-) The house is quiet....Scott took Megan to swim practice so I'm just chillin' out listening to some music and scrappin'. Sadie's camped out on her doggie bed and Smudge is hiding somewhere ( he has to have like 12 hours of sleep so when we all go to sleep he can run laps on the bed and pounce on me.)

Megan's decided she wants to try this volleyball camp that's coming up in June. Scott came home from work tonight and he had bought her a volleyball. You would have thought he'd come home with a triple chocolate sundae with a side of cash she was so tickled! We went out in the yard and messed around a bit. I forgot how sore that can make your arms. I'm already walking around like Forrest Gimp from pulling a muscle in my groin. (which BTW totally SUCKS!!!!!!!) Am I getting old or something????

Anyway, better go, they'll be home soon and I can at least attempt to look like I was doing something useful. :-) Later Gaters!

Oh and P.S. to Shawndel and Angie for the snail mail last week! I really do have the best friends!!!

Today's Mom's birthday. Just wanted to make something. It's an older pic, can't even remember when it was taken. Sure do miss her. Megan & I decided tonight we will have a cupcake with a candle and celebrate Mom. We can send her wishes when we blow out the candle. We're going to look at pictures and talk about moments and just remember some really good times. Not sure if this is a good idea or a bad one, but I figure celebrating her life feels like what I need to do.

Going to have Dad over for dinner on Monday night for his birthday. I bought some ribeyes and figured Scott can be the Grill Master for the evening.

That's all for now, not really in the best mood for blogging. Thanks for checking in with us!

oh how I missed you!

Megan spent the night at her friend's Sat night and our cat Smudge went nuts w/o her! He kept looking for her and going to her room meowing and wandering around the house. When she got home Sunday he would not leave her alone! He was like glued to her. I took this while Megan was napping. How cute is that?

oh yeah..

I forgot to mention my day w/ Jen ( My MIL) & Megan yesterday! We did a little (and I mean little) shopping, had lunch at the Spaghetti shop (yummy uncle louie sub!) and Megan and I got our hair cut. I also got highlights. Man my hair is short! It's like I have a teeny tiny head on a huge body. I think when the gal had me under the dryer she must have shrunk my head.......OR somehow all the air blew in thru my nose and blew up my body! It's crazy I tell ya!! That's my story and I'm stickin to it!!!

I also got a massage!! BUT not like that "one" I had. ( see my july 7th, 2008 posting about that "one".) This one was pretty decent! Although I kinda felt like a greased pig from all the oily lotion. At least no one stuck an apple in my mouth and put me over a fire pit. :-)

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood....

What a gorgeous day!! Sunny & bright & 60 some degrees......sigh.......Meg & me took a nice long walk around the 'hood. Took some pics outside, went out for lunch (where I saw Annette, **HI BUDDY!!**) and now we're being bums. She's watching a movie and I'm on here (obviously). I just made a LO of some pics I took today. Megan was so funny! She wanted me to get pics of her "frolicking" around the yard.

Happy Easter Yo!!

yeah the kids are all Easta gangsta. hardy har har. And no, Sadie did not enjoy wearing the bunny ears. Hence the fact Megan is holding her in the pics. But she looks so cute!!

It's Spring Break Ba-by!!

awe......Spring Break.........what can I say?? A whole week off to do whatever I want. I can sleep in and not fix breakfast til 10 and stay in my jammies. Sure my hair may be sticking straight up and I may not get a shower til noon, but hey, life is good while on break! My house is clean (let's hope it stays that way at least another 24 hours) Megan's room is clean ( It's an Easter miracle!) and I can actually write on my blog. Not that I have much to write about! I get credit for trying though right? :-)

Hopefully the Easter Bunny was good to you all. I explained the whole Bunny & Egg thing to my sisters. How the bunny steals eggs from the unsuspecting chickens and then paints them so the chickens cannot identify their own eggs and then hides them ... it's sort of like the Bunny is some frat rabbit playing a trick on the sorority chicks. It makes perfect sense does it not??? The bunny of coarse doesn't get caught cause he doesnt keep the stolen goods. He probably then gets drunk & TP's the chicken coop. That's another story though. Anyway, it made sense to Debbie & Carla ( which may or may not speak volumes for our cognitive mental processing.)
Anyhoo, Debbie said Mom would have loved that explanation. I think so too. :-) I sure do miss her.

Ok before I get all sappy I should change the subject. Oh like how I slept like kaka last night! I even woke up at 3 when Scott got home from work (overtime baby!) and in my half awake/ half asleep stupor I got up and ran into the wall. I made a sound/word that sounded like "Snarf!" Now those of you who know me realize I do tend to make up my own words. But Snarf??? What does that mean??
I guess Snarf means " Holy sh*t I just ran into a wall!" Hopefully I won't snarf again tonight. It hurts my face.

well, I better go. I wanted to post some pics before I have to fix dinner. Thanks for checking in w/ me!!!
