For the love of Pete

Well, my friends, it’s been a while since we’ve talked about my road rage. Truth is, since I said I was going to get better, I did. My road rage was never really out of control anyway, but I was ALWAYS griping and yelling about people while I drove. I’m not saying I stopped all of this, I just got better. It just urks me when people are not paying attention, don’t risk my life, my hubby’s life or my babies lives because you are too busy talking on your cell phone, texting, PUTTING ON YOUR MAKEUP!(I really hate that one!), eating, etc. while you are driving! That’s how people get killed folks! So, I was doing better…

And then I got a new car…

And yesterday, well, I lost it on a girl. Kinda sorta. You see, I was driving down the road, headed back to the office from Chick-fil-A where I picked up yummy salads for lunch. I was in the left lane, seriously just driving the speed limit, minding my own bees wax. All of a sudden and I mean ALL of a sudden, the girl that was in the right lane just decided to come on over…didn’t even look! AHH! So, I slammed on the brakes, tires went screeching and of course I laid on my horn. Somehow, someway we didn’t hit each other. I don’t know how. I wanted to puke and cry and yell all at the same time! I took a deep breath, home girl slowed waaaay down, back in HER lane. I pulled beside her and said, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!” She kept saying, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry.” And so I said, “Yea, you would have been sorry if you would have hit me because I probably would have kicked your tail.” (except I said the A-word) I really wish I wouldn’t have said anything. I shouldn’t have said anything. But I was so mad! I have to learn to control that! Right now. I should have just been happy that our salads were tossed for free!

And, no more bad words either. I usually only say them when I’m really mad, but I’m gonna stop that too. So, you may start to see things like “for the love of Pete” instead of “what’s your freakin’ problem”!

Father’s Day Weekend

We had a super fun busy weekend! Saturday we took the kids to see Toy Story 3! imagesIt was cute…some of the toys were kind of mean though! It was Reece’s first time to see a movie at the theater and she wasn’t too impressed. She doesn’t really like to watch TV so she really didn’t want to watch the movie either.

We spent Sunday with our Dad’s! We swam and swam and swam and ate and ate and ate!

Little Snaggle! Hard to eat ribs without a top tooth! ha!DSC_0672 Pey had NO problem with the ribs or the 14 servings of potato salad he ate! And, yes, we paid for that later….DSC_0669 Reece prefers to lounge and eat.DSC_0674 Swimming with cousin E!DSC_0679 Homemade Oreo ice cream with Cousin E!DSC_0687 DSC_0691 xoxo,

How’s Chippie?!

She’s fantastic! She’s such a sweet little dog. And I’m her favorite! (of course!) If I’m sitting on the couch, she’s right beside me. If I get up and move, she follows me where ever I go. If I change couches, she changes couches! The other night I was trying to get some pictures of her and so she ran to Josh and tried to hide under his arm…she STILL HATES the camera! But as soon as I put the camera away she was right back beside me! Don’t get me wrong, she loves everyone else too! I’m so glad she decided to come live with us! hee hee!DSC_0643xoxo,

Work Hard Play Hard(er!)

I just picked up this bad boy!photo 2It’s fantastic! Love Love Love it! It’s L.O.A.D.E.D. and does all sorts of tricks! I said when we bought my Expedition that I would drive it until the wheels fell off and I pretty much did! I loved it, I just wanted something different! I’ve had my eyes on the Yukons for a while now and y’all know I did my research!

I’m sorry I left you all hanging with the life change thing…it has to do with Josh’s job and I don’t want to say too much for fear of jinxing things! It’s still in law enforcement I will say that much! I’m sure he’ll always have something to do with law enforcement, it makes my man happy!

I’m off to cruise in my new ride…10 bucks says the kids start fighting over which movie they are going to watch the first time they get in it! ha ha!

Gray Squirrel

Reece’s music teacher has a “pet” gray squirrel. She hides it before the class comes to music and lets the kids find it. Well, Reece is always the first to find it and sometimes she even finds it as she is walking in the room! This has caused her to talk about every squirrel she sees! There’s a big oak tree across the street from her school and every morning for the last month she has seen this cute little squirrel out around the tree. If he wasn’t around on a particular morning she’d say, “Grey squirrel still sleeping??” And I’d say, “must be!” Weeellllll, one morning last week as I pulled up to the school I saw the poor little squirrel dead in the road!!!


Crapity. Crap. Crap!

I did all kinds of maneuvering around to keep her from seeing. But she still asked where he was that day. So, I lied. Right there in the church parking lot. I lied. “Must be still sleeping!” She was fine with that and we went on our merry little way.

The next day I wondered if she’d ask(I was just going to act like I had no idea where he was). We pulled up to our same spot and there was another one! Just fat, dumb and happy gathering his breakfast! Whoo hoo!!!! :)

Life’s a Beach!

We just got back from the beach again…I’m telling you I could live there! I know I’ve said that 575 times, but I’m not kidding! Friday was gorgeous! We stayed on the beach most of the day…no oil. Saturday as we were walking out to the beach some old man stopped us and said,”Y’all don’t know how bad it is out there do you?” Nope, we didn’t. The beach was pretty covered in big globs of oil. There wasn’t much in the water and we could step around the oil so we stayed out there a few hours, until a thunderstorm sent us packing! Sunday we found a new beach hangout! We’ve dubbed it our new spot! You have to walk oh about a half a mile to get to it, but it’s worth it! It’s kind of secluded and there’s hardly anyone else there! AND, no oil either!


This is for Kelsie, lover of all things purple…

See how far we were!

Let Cascade do the dirty work!

Soooooo, last night I had bunco. Thank goodness for bunco, it’s always much needed girl time! While I was away Josh had the kids. They went to ToysRUs and who knows what else they got into. After they got home they ate supper and were just hanging out. Griffin spent some money he had been saving on a game for his Nintendo DS and Peyton managed to talk Josh into another Xbox game. Anywho, Reece was running the house since I was away and apparently disappeared for a minute. She was in the kitchen, Josh was in the living room. All of a sudden she came running up to Josh and puked! Come to find out, she decided to taste one of these!


What on earth made her want to do that? She helps me wash dishes all.the.time and knows what they are for!!!! Geeze!

Josh called poison control who told him to give her plenty of liquids. And they said that since she puked so fast she was probably ok. And she was.

We’re planning on heading to the beach tomorrow. I hope the oil holds off…don’t get me started on the oil issue! We were going to have a no kids beach trip but we decided that we would rather take them with us. We are expecting a BIG life change very soon so we may not be able to go again for a little while. And, NO, I’m not pregnant. :)
