It's May! Hurray!

I'm not sure if I can ever write a post quite as...ummm...interesting as A's last one, but I never claimed to have an interesting life.

April flew by! I'm not sure what all I did, but I stayed very busy. We had a big picnic with some friends that I meet on the internet. That was a blast! One of my SILs got married and the onther one had her first baby. Money is tight, but DH still has a job, so I can't complain too much. We have been thinking about getting a new house, but we're still in the 'talking' stage.

I've been buying some Christmas presents for Little Man. So that's fun. Have a few more for other people but not many.

We had a yard sale a few weeks ago and made $ not bad at all. We're hoping to have another one here soon.

May is shaping up to be busy as well. My MIL's bday is coming up soon. And ofcourse Mother's Day (which a friend may-or-maynot be coming). Then we're going to see my BIL later this month.

Ummmm...oh, dinner with my Author friend (she's PUBLISHED!)...and possibly a baby shower AND a birthday party. Whew.

Anyhow, life may not be interesting for some but it's busy!!!

Peace Out!

Because Bad People Should Be Eaten...

I kinda, sorta, almost watched one of the Jurassic Park movies last night and the title of this post was what I wrote down. Yes, it was late at night. But I stand by my theory that bad people should be eaten. Just think, if we cut up bad people and fed them to the poor, there would be no more hunger! The starving people would have a belly full of bad. There would also be less competition for existing resources since I'm guessing over half the population would be gone. And there would be a lot less suffering in the world.

I think we could do it.

Sauteed Son-of-a-B!$#*.
Braised B@#!@^(.
Mashed M-Fer.
Sliced S#!*-for-brains.
Canaped C*%^-sucker.

Wow, I just realized how limited my vocabulary has become regarding, well, cursing.

But, ya know, I'm really not in a bad mood right now. For a change. No matter how this post might read so far.

In fact, I'm doin' good, despite NO AIR CONDITIONING! And the fact that I won't have air conditioning for my ENTIRE VACATION. Which I was hoping would be a time when I could do some major cleaning. But I don't like to sweat that much. Oh, well.

On a brighter note. You'll be happy to know that I have been Rick Rolled twice this week. I had never even heard about Rick Rolling, despite the fact that it's been around for several years. I had to look it up on the geat and wonderful Wiki.

I found a clip on youtube explaining it as well. (It's mislabeled, so ignore the muppets blooper tag. This is how I found the clip in the first place.)

So, now you know.

Also, I think I might have stumbled on a hobby that I might enjoy. It's called letterboxing. I would like to try it. First, though, I have to purchase a few supplies.

I think it would get me out of the house and give me the opportunity to explore SC more. It would give me an excuse to drive over to another town besides window shopping, which, to me, is no excuse at all.

I have a final next week for the Med. Terminology class I am taking. I decided, however, that I would wait to take another class until Fall. Due to financial considerations...and my distaste for long summer classes. Of course, my distaste for all classes leads me to want to drop the whole issue...But, alas, alack.

I actually had a test at the beginning of this week. I had 24 hours to read and study the material. I was sure I was going to fail the exam, or at least get a low grade. I got an A. Go figure.

Btw, M and I need to get together and do something. Like pick-up lunch and take C to Swan Lake and take pictures or something....

Yeah, then I could post the pics on my blog - spice it up a bit. That'd be nice. Ta-Ta.

I'm not kidding, it's April...

Yes, I love April. Except for the incredible amount of pollen that coats everything like an evil miasma which smothers the secondary, disposable character in a horror movie-you know, the funny one who always dies. Seriously, I think the blanket of pollen on my car winked at me yesterday as I stepped in! It was an uncomfortable ride.

But the flowers are out and about. Well, all except my poor azaleas. They're dying, have been for several years, and I don't know why. Not that I've been taking care of them. I have a black thumb. I just don't 'get' gardening. Which is not to say that I don't like doing it, it's just that I don't know how. And as far as I can tell, there are no beginner gardening classes for dummies. I just can't learn from a book.

Ah well, I did go to Ace Hardware yesterday. I had to go to two Ace Hardware stores actually, because they didn't have a replacement knob for my outdoor spigot at the first. I had to wait for help at both stores, but I eventually got what I wanted. I think. I'm about to go out and see if I bought the right product or not. But I did get a little soil test while there, so hopefully I will find out if I can save my poor neglected azaleas. They truly are so pitiful. Especially compared to my neighbors' plants on either side of me. Yes, I'm the neighbor with the 'ugly' yard. Despite my occasional attempts to correct the situation.

I could really use some advice if anyone has any. As far as I can see, there are no pests attacking them.

My roses are dead too...I think. They're not blooming anyway. My brother says that not blooming is the universal sign of death.

He laughed when I said that I'm not so sure of that.

You're kiddin''s almost April

I looked at the calendar today and do you know what I noticed?? It's March 21st! Where has the time gone? Didn't we just celebrate New Years? Anyhow, as it IS March 21st, and I haven't posted in, like, forevah...I decided to give ya'll a little update. *cough-cough*

Well, Little Man is growing like a weed! He just cut through teeth # 13 & 14 and he's working on the next 2. He's just a teething monster! He's starting to eat like a monster too, which means a growth spurt. He's finally wearing some 18 months in pants...but more for the reason that 12 months are getting too tight. 18 months still ride really low on his hips. And because of his shoulders, he can wear an 18 month shirt, 24 months/2T shirts, as well as some 3T- depending on the cut. Oh, and can you believe that his tennis shoes are a 6! He can get away with a 5 1/2 in sandles. He loves his blocks and trucks and playing make-believe. He can play in his room by himself for 15 to 20 minutes! I'm so happy...because that gives me a little break to unload the dish washer or sort through bills or just have a glass of water.

With Easter almost here, we have been preparing his basket. He's getting a kite, for sure. He's got this obsession (sp) with birds (also his new word) he should really like watching a kite. At least, that's the plans.

Money is getting tight. DH's work is goin' on rolling layoffs and shutting down the plant one week in March and one week in April. We don't know about May and June yet. But the whole corparation shuts down for 2 weeks in July. A great time for a vacation...oh wait...that's right...we don't have enough money. *grumble*

As for me, I'm still lovin' being a SAHM. Never a dull day, that's for sure. We are also in the middle of Spring Cleaning. Oh, happy....not! But it needs to be done. We are planning a yard sale for later in April. My last one (which was planned in 2 days) made me $80.00 - not bad for a half days "work".

Little Man has his first photo/model session in April as well. That should be really fun. I can't wait to see how he acts. Or to see the photos. It's up to me as to what to dress him in, so I guess it depends on if it's 65 or 85 out there.

I'm moving up in the DAR...along with my chairmanships, I was offered an Office this up coming term...but I'll talk more about that if I get April ;-)

SIL is excited about counting down to her wedding...when? In April...and other SIL is excited about counting down to her due date...lets say it together now... "In April". Yeah, April is gonna be busy-busy!

That's about it for now. Hope to read some more updates soon.

Hospital visits and other fun stuff

I know I havent been very attentive lately, I have been sick again.  I wound up in the hospital for a little while last week and now my hubby and I have decided that maybe the best thing is to take some time off work and get my health in order.  I have numerous appointment over the next week and even more numerous appointments in the lab for getting bloodwork done (freaking vampires they all are, I swear).

On another note, my brother called me tonigth wanting to open lines of communication back up.  I am a little confused, I still have a few hurt feelings, but it would be nice to talk to my brother again.  And I guess hurt feelings are meant to be mended.  It was nice, we talked for like an hour and half.  And I am looking forward to getting to know Little K-man  a little better, since all I know are pictures right now.  And Little Miss T talked to her Uncle for a little bit.  She said Hi alot and mostly giggled, but that is her way, and she tried to share her chicken noodle soup with him.  :)

I guess that is all for now, I dont what to start moaning and groaning about bad health, etc.  That would just be boring.  :)
