It Is That Time Of Year Again...

It is time for my semiyearly trip to Boston. The last couple of weeks I have been running aroung like a chicken with its head cut off. I finally finished packing and can swear I am forgetting a couple of things.

This time the whole family is going, JR, Baby Girl, and The Sequel. This will be The Sequel's first airplane ride. I must post pictures.

Ok, guys I will try to post pics while on the road. Have a great week!!

Bravo Stop It Now!!

Bravo needs to stop making reality shows. Who the hell told them that I wanted to see Bobby Brown in action or Whitney Houston for that matter?? As I was flipping through the channels on Sunday I came up on Being Bobby Brown. Oh, no it is awful.

The show has so much dead air it was painful to watch and I was only on that channel for 5 minutes! It just seems too rehearsed, like a show with no script where the actors seem lost and can not ad lib. It just doesn’t flow together at all.

Bravo please stop. These people HAD their 15 minutes years ago…let them go Bravo, let them go.

Ohhh, Ahhh, Oh No!

Unbelievably enough I managed to go to the movie theatre two consecutive days in a row. That has not happened in, well, I can not even think in how long.

On Friday we took Baby Girl to see March of the Penguins and I must say that I loved it! The movie tracts the 70 mile migration, yes, 70 miles!!, of the penguins from the ocean to their breeding ground, mating, birth, and eventually the baby’s moving on on their own. There were happy moments, romantic moments (Baby Girl kept saying “What’s going on mommy? “What’s happening?” and I was just thinking to myself, some penguin lovin’), and very, very sad moments. The movie just makes you cheer for those little guys.

The movie completely takes you out of your every day life and makes you remember that there are other things going on in the world.

On Saturday, JR friends wanted to take him to the movies and we ended up seeing The Island. When I saw the preview I liked the story line and thought it would be a good movie to go see, but I was wrong. The whole cloning process was just a small side dish to the massive car chases, people falling from a 70 story building and surviving, and explosions. The movie was too predictable and it left a lot of questions unanswered. It was just not my kind of movie.

Happy Birthday to...

Natalie. Last night we, Kimberlie, Emily, of course, Natalie, and I, met to have dinner at Berryhill's to celebrate her birthday.

When I spoke to Natalie I told her to pick somewhere lively to go and, wew, she did not let me down. This is not an ordinary Berryhill, there was music (so very loud, but I guess I must be old), lights, dancing, half naked woman (nothing better to make you feel self conscious), and lots of lovin'. The place was "lively" alright.

What a coincidence - my husdand and Natalie actually went to the same high school and graduated the same year - small world, huh? I never run into people from my high school!

Natalie, I hope you had a great birthday!!

I am so hating my job right now and by that I mean this very second.

As I was getting ready to go to a birthday party my boss calls me and tells me that he needs me for an emergency window. Crap!!! I ask when he needs me, playing stupid, and he says in between 30 minutes to an hour...crap!!! So much for trying to look cute, I do roll my hair though, there is no reason for leaving the job halfway done.

Anyway, one of the managers called me and hour after my boss did and tells me it might be between 20 minutes to two hours before any work is done. Anyway, it has been two hours since my boss called and no work. Shit! This is going to be a LONG day.

Fuck Me!!

Guys guess what; I have just been fired from my VOLUNTEER job. I deliver, well, delivered welcome baskets to the people moving into our neighborhood. It was a fun thing to do, because I was able to meet new people and talk to area business when I went to pick up the items to put in the baskets.

I am so pissed off, the problem is that the lady is so old, please remember that I love all people, and does not remember things very well. She says that I forgot to pick up the basket yesterday, even though I know for a fact that I had to pick them up today. She also says that I did not return her call one day and that she had to deliver a basket herself. This particular time I remember calling her back and her telling me that since she was stepping out she would deliver it herself. What the Fuck?!!

To clarify things...she, the old lady, puts the baskets together. I have a list of 20 area business that I keep in contact with and call on every time we need something. I am also in charge of delivering the baskets to my area of the neighborhood. Clear?

I have never been fired from a volunteer position before. I am not getting paid, I am a volunteer damn it! I have a house, two kids, a husband, and a full time job (in my mind it seems like more than that). I am so sorry that I can not be at the lady's house at the drop of a hat. Firing me is a little harsh. I am so fricking pissed off!!

UPDATE - Sorry guys, I forgot to include a piece of information. The lady fires me by leaving a message on my machine. I, not hearing the message, go to her house to pick up the baskets and she gives them to me and tells me to deliver one tomorrow and the other one on Friday! I do not know about the "You're Fired" business until 30 minutes ago when I check my messages.

The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear...

Yippie me! This is the latest addition to my shade problem (that is what JR calls it). My frames are white instead of the black ones you see here. The shades are oversized and JR says they look like skiing goggles, what does he know about fashion?!!!

Tommy Boy

Ok, there are new allegations that Tom Cruise is gay. I don't care whether he is or not, I love all people, but all I can say is that if there are still rumors going around after he has been married, soon to be three times, there must be something going on there.

I found a this link on Jennifer's site - TomCruiseisNuts.

Picture this, a conversation late last night somewhere in London left on the answering machine of ___(fill in the blank)___ - anyone important.

"Hello. This is Abu Musad with the al-Qaeda cell here in London. I know you are used to hearing from Mohammed, but he is no longer with us, you know the occupational hazzard that comes with this job. Anyway, I am calling because I wanted to give you a warning and let you know that we are setting some bombs up in the underground subway and maybe a bus, we are still working on that one. Well, just wanted to give you guys a warning. Have a good night".

What kind of warning were they expecting? I think there is a reason it is called TERROR-ISM.

I feel so bad for everyone there, my thoughts are with them. This morning's events took me back to the morning on September 11, except that my daughter is almost 4 and today I had to explain to her why there were so many people injured. Terrorism sucks.

Happy Birthday USA!!


It was a great weekend! On Saturday we got together at Cybertoad's house for a July 4th BBQ. It was super yummy! It was also really nice to see everyone again. It seems that I have been out of the loop lately, well, you guys know, new baby and all. I really need to join the "outside" world again. Thanks for inviting us Elaine.

On Sunday my sister came over and we just hung out, jumped in the pool, and ate. Yeap, my kind of day. On Monday we hung out again, visited the Tommy Bahama restaurant at the Market Center in The Woodlands, and watched some fireworks. They really put on a good show. Happy Birthday USA!

It was also my lucky weekend. Ms. Kymberlie upgrated me to a PRO Account on flickr. Yippie for me! She is such a sweet heart. Thanks Kymberlie.
