I miss two-piece bathing suits. ~That is all.
Missing Them Like It's My Job
As a mom, it’s your job. To know where your child is and that they are safe. Especially the stay-at-home mom. You pretty much have nothing else to concentrate on. And then one day they grow up and leave. But..YOU never lose that urge to know where your child is… that they are accounted for in your mind. And when you’re not sure of where they are, ..if you haven’t heard from...
Would You Like A Yogurt Drink?
The smell of fresh brewed coffee, ..bacon and eggs in the frying pan, ..cinnamon rolls in the oven. Umm, Yeah, that ain’t gonna happen. Hello, DanActive 35 calorie yogurt drink. ..And so, the day begins..
Update: ‘The Smartest Man Alive’ is passed out on the pool deck. ;)
..I Just Can't Stop..
Gonna go outside and enjoy this day. Gonna breathe in the air, gonna soak up the sun, gonna float in the pool. Gonna look around ..and see everything that needs to be done, and probly get up and do it. …I. just. can’t. stop….
OMG! Guess who just bought “THE SHRED”? …I’m a little bit scared. Pray for me.
Power To The People?
So, I got a new power-washer. I power-washed the screen porch, I power-washed the patio furniture. I power-washed the shutters and gutters. *Powerful stuff*. I’m runnin out of things to power-wash. ..Who needs a bath?
So How Was Your Afternoon?
I dug the power-washer out of the garage. Lifted it high up over the car, like a body-builder. (And it’s HEAVY). Ow,…I cut my leg in the process. I brought the power-washer to the back yard. It was a good 2-3 minute trip, but me and the power-washer, we enjoyed the view. I untangled all the cords and wires. Everybody likes to do that, right?! Carried out alllll the patio furniture from...
That's My Boy!
My boy just called me from the bus, in Ohio. First football scrimmage of the year was a success. He is pumped, got some good playing time, and the first thing he did when he was done? Called his mom. Aw, I LOVE THAT BOY!!!
LaLa..La, La, Lah...
My blueberries are sweet, my raspberries are perfect, my cantaloupe is fully ripened, and my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard. I’m sorry, I just couldn’t help myself.
Happy Birthday Cleapow! I made you a birthday cake and put cheetos on top, but Lindsaylooo ate them off. Sometimes it’s hard to live in Michigan. Step back, Sarah, inMi, whatever, there’s plenty to go around.
Shedding or Shredding?
For a minute there, I was considering doing that 30 Day Shred. But, you all make is sound SO marvelous, I think I’ll just stick to the original plan of cutting my right leg off. It sounds less painful, …and legs weigh about 20 pounds, right? RIGHT?
Little Stevie, next door, never shuts up. He is ALWAYS yelling something. “Cannonball”,..”you’re a liar”, “I don’t have to”, “Nah nah nah nah nah”, but mostly..”Grandpa, Grandpa, watch me”! It’s so loud and annoying and constant, I’d just like to reach over the fence and strang…. No, *I* REALLY like kids....
I slept in till 10:00 this morning. And for that, I make no apologies. In fact, it felt sooo good, I may do it again tomorrow. (Now, if we called that beauty sleep, I’d be lookin mighty fine right now. Unfortunately,..it was just sleep).
Say It Ain't So, Joe!!!
So let me tell you about today: First school starts. “Great”. Next, I get the official Football Schedule, along with pictures, already posted, in the 2010 Football Program. “Whaaat”?! The weather’s almost chilly. I had to turn off the AC and might even want to close the windows. The sun NEVER. CAME. OUT. ..”Fricken weatherman, wrong AGAIN”. And only one...
I wonder if the True Green dude is just a little bit embarrassed, when driving up to all his brown lawns, during this drought. True Green, my ass.
It's Simple, Really.
I taught my kids to be nice to everyone. Because, what’s the point? Mean people suck. It’s simple, really. …Just. Be. Nice. Watch for *me* in the upcoming movie.. “Mean Girls 2” ..JK/LOL.
She's Everything I'll Never Be..
My daughter. She’s amazing. She’s everything I’ll never be. She was the captain of the cheerleading squad, on the homecoming court, a straight “A” student in grade school, high school and yes, even college. She’s gorgeous and witty and people flock to her. They always have. And at this very moment, she’s leading a group of students on the Inca Trail, in...
I Gotta Get Me One Of Those..or Do I?
The lady down the street has 5 dogs. Whenever I see her walking them, carrying a bulging plastic bag, full of their poo, I immediately lose the aura of “geez, I gotta get me one of those”.
Please Pass the Port..Passport..Get It?
Right now, my daughter’s on her way to Peru. But *I* went to the grocery store today,….twiccce! Would you like some wine?
Got a New Top, ..Sorta
All my shirts are black. So, yeah, …I just got a new black top. It’s kinda like the other ones…you know, ..cause it’s black. What was I thinking?
Just Went Grocery Shopping and Got Me Some...
Bacon salt. ..Because “Everything should taste like bacon”. Well, …we’ll just see about that, bacon salt makers.
'Please, sir, I want some more.'
I enjoyed everything about today. Working in the yard.. hanging out at the pool.. watching the clouds go by. I’d do it again tomorrow, but the weatherman predicted rain. What a jerk.
Being home alone confirms a lot of things. Like: I am not the one who pees on the toilet seat or flings toothpaste on the mirror. And, I do NOT leave the cupboard doors open or leave the lights on. I’m perfect. Perfect, I tell ya! Okay, okay, so I DID eat all the watermelon, snack foods…and might have drank all the rum…but besides that…perrr-fect.
I woke up earlier than usual today. Went outside, with my cup of coffee, to survey the grounds. (Makes it sound like I live in a mansion, doesn’t it?..Well, I don’t) It’s beautiful out. The air smells fresh. The temperature a little cooler. The sun a little less harsh. Birds hopping around in the grass, …and the neighborhood was perfectly silent. Simply fabulous. Enjoy your...
I'm Usually Pretty Laid Back...
I’m usually pretty laid back. Not much bothers me, and I’m pretty good natured, if I do say so myself. BUT, I just got a call from my distraught daughter, who’s interning in New York, and somebody stole her wallet and cell phone out of her purse during lunch. Today is her last day of work there. She’s supposed to fly home, to Chicago, tomorrow. Now, no license, no credit...
That's Where You'll Find Me.
If you need me, I’ll be at the pool. ALLLLLL day! Cept for right now, of course. :)
So the pool guy arrived. They NEVER look like they do on tv. I’m a little disappointed. I’m a LOT disappointed. Meh, maybe next time.
It's Murphy's Law
It’s Murphy’s Law: Everytime ‘the man’ goes on a business trip, something breaks. Something, big, expensive, and crucial to everyday life. This time it’s the pool pump. (Hey, it’s VERY important to ME.) So now I have to sit and wait. Wait. Wait. WAIT. (I hate to wait) On the upside, most women have to sneak their pool boys in..my husband called mine for me...
Oh Auntie Em, There's No Place Like Home..
New York for the week-end, then Chicago for the weekend, then camping for a week, then Chicago for the weekend. Seriously, it’s good to be home. Can I unpack my bags now?
I Went to Chicago to Hang Art~Don't Worry He's...
So, I painted these pictures for my daughter’s apartment… It started out as the two outside paintings, which I gave to her for Christmas. Then, an accident caused by a roommate, put a huge L-shaped tear in the one on the right. She was devastated. I bought some new canvases and planned to repaint, but instead found I could repair it with a piece of canvas and a bit of fresh paint....
Watch out, I'm tumbling!
JeeNeeBee succumbs to peer pressure and creates a tumblr. Whoa daddy, we are all doomed! First Facebook, ..then twitter…now tumblr. I’ve never been very good at tumbling… especially backflips, so watch out before you get kicked in the mouth.
