dough too doughy

“Ma’am” has nothing to do with “Mammy,” it’s shortened “Madam(e).” How do you get into your adult life without knowing this?

Found that quote somewhere and it kinds makes you wonder.

Making bread right now and it's still too wet. Trying to find how to make it with honey and not sugar.

Mom and dad left with the aunts and grandma. The house is half empty and I don't think the kids know what to do.

Neil is pretty stressed out with the odd hours and the stress of family. I wish I could do something to help him. All I can do is just be here for him.

Anyways, just off the the library now.

Sunscreen and Chips

It has been awesome! I love having family close. I really hope I can visit them at their homes, though that would be inviting myself wouldn't it? They are such good people. I just want us to be a part of each others lives.

The kids are amazing. They are just perfect! Annoying and disobedient but still wonderful. Would we have it any other way? Sure they're ours but they are pretty good looking kids. They are! They all have sunscreen on and are eating chips- so adorable! They are all wet, even the one that almost drowned yesterday. We're so happy he got back into the water so he wont be afraid of it. He is okay, just swallowed too much water and had to have it beat out of him. That sounds a lot more violent then what it was. I had NO idea what happened till today. Does that make me a bad Aunt/Cousin? I feel so terrible. Cousin K's son. She's so gorgeous! Very jealous. Also I think Cousin J's wife (also cousin J) lost some weight since I saw her last. I should tell her but she's just now opening up to me so I don't want to get on personal subjects just yet. She is such a beautiful woman too.

Cousins will be leaving today and the rest tomorrow (including mom and dad). They will be missed. It will be one empty house, well almost. The three kids will still be here, but without the other three kids it will seem like half of them are missing. Half is true- 3 and 3. I should be out there with them, but walking around town all day has taken it out of me again. So many people's energies it gets to me. Plus my leg is hurting (back too, but not as much). Not nearly as bad as before though. Just thought I should clarify that.

Internet Junkyard 2

Tequila and Salt

This should probably be taped to your bathroom mirror where one could read it everyday. You may not realize it, but it's 100% true:
1. There are at least two people in this world that you would die for.
2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.
4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
6. You mean the world to someone.
7. You are special and unique.
8. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.
9. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.
10. When you think the world has turned its back on you take another look.
11. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.

And always remember....when life hands you Lemons, ask for tequila and salt, and call me over!

Library Card

I have come to realize that the "newly established" library card has brought into my life new reading, and entertainment, possibilities. Any books to recommend my way? Please give me some opinions! And by the way, the library card was gotten in 2002... so it's really "new".

Now it's cheaper to ride the bus to my chiropractor appointment then to drive, it used to be cheaper the other way around.

Sammy has decided that since his daddy, my honey, got up the past couple of days at 5:15am that he will play with me and wake me up, pissed that daddy got up and disturbed *HIS* sleep. He sleeps all day! I go and hunt him down, drag him out from his sleeping bag (under the bed, my side) and smuther him with loves. Alas, this does not help. He still is determined to get back at us for his sleep disturbances.

Star Treak

Star Trek is AWESOME!!! Honestly, go see it. You will not be sorry. I told my honey after we saw it that I wanted to see it again RIGHT NOW. So amazing... seriously, go see it. It is something worth the 6$ (if your local and see it before, what is it, 6? o'clock) and popcorn (recommend popcorn a lot, but it's been making me rather ill lately... fake butter maybe), a soda if you wish, and maybe even some candy. Granted the movie is about 2 hours long, so make sure you go before you get into your seat.

Go see it, and bring me with you!

Twitter has captured my attention. Since I've been waiting by the computer constantly in between taking photos of the kids, knitting, reading, and making tea- where was I? Oh yes, I've taken up Twitter interests because of computer bound emails telling me about wither or not I got the job or if my attorney emails me back about the latest of getting money from the man who hit us. UGH! Frustrating all that is, but a friend is going threw things and taking it out on us.

Anyways, back to the twitter thingy. I like it becuase I can subscribe to others posts and my two non-personal favortie posters are NPR and The Onion. Now I'm excited to read the news more instead of hitting the Yahoo! site and seeing what the posted on there. I like the simplicity of the twitter posts.

I'm still afraid of birds and wished that Twitter was named something else, even though it wouln't make sense otherwise.

Ugly Sock 2

The Yellow/Green line shows where the knitted part is, the red where the toes are.

Post 100

Well another day done and mostly gone... it's my 100th post on blogger and I have to say, it's been real.

Other then that I've just been "mildly" depressed about not having a job. The search is getting to me. So much that Sammy is giving me far more lovings then he usually does.

I've finished the second ugly sock and have decided to give up for a bit. It's so ugly and un-comfy. I'm just not cut out for making socks.
