WW Acting Like Tourists

     Here we are  on the Las Vegas Strip acting like tourists at M&M World. It was fun(ish). Too many real tourists! What do I expect? Spring break in Vegas? Of course there are too many tourists!! DUH! But any time we spend with our Vegas peeps is A-OK with us!!

Boys go to Jupiter...

Friday Follow

     "Girls go to college to gain more knowledge, boys go to Jupiter to get more stupider." SPF swears she and her friends made this up at recess the other day. I, on the other hand, feel like this sounds awfully familiar. Did they hear it somewhere, or does every generation of girls 'make this up'? Just wondering, if this sounds familiar leave me a comment., I'll host a little poll too. Please vote to your left, thank you.

     Now as a mom to a darling little boy ( She says sarcastically), I have to say how I strongly disagree with the said statement, and boys go right to college. But I much prefer hanging on to the we're smarter than them notion. I mean we are right? But he IS so darn cute!!! Gotta love him....

(Even if Grandpa looks a little possessed! LOL)

Non Exciting Item

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

     I know it doesn't look like much, but I'm so tired these days that I take pride in accomplishing even the smallest of tasks. Today, I hung my bulletin board! I know it's not that exciting-but here is the pic:

     Hey, not all of life is edge of your seat excitement, or overwhelming humour. No sirree, life is all about the day in day out regular, even mundane tasks.  So here is my non exciting  item I checked off my to do list.

     And a side note- ONLY 6 DAYS LEFT UNTILL WE GO TO LAS VEGAS!!! (I'm just a little excited! You can't tell can you?)

Not Me Monday

     When SPF was telling me about her friend that can 'burp on demand', I didn't tell her I could too or anything. Oh no, NOT ME!! I would never break my perfect Miss. Molly Manners persona, oh no, NOT ME! When she asked me to prove it, I didn't burp 5 times in a row or anything, NOT ME!! I didn't get the cool mom award or anything , oh no, NOT ME!!

Should I or Shouldn't I?

Friday Follow

     Here we are at Friday Follow once again, and I find myself with a 'should I or shouldn't I?' participate attitude. If you remember I broke the rules a few weeks back, and openly declared I was doing so. I even lost a few followers, but that's ok,  I did invite them to stop following me. (it was only a couple anyway.)

     That being said, I like, no I love, Friday Follow. I think it's great, I have made new friends, found  interesting new blogs, and gained new followers who like to read me. Great idea guys! So I am back, and at it again.

     Now onto me, or us. I worked today, but had to stay home yesterday because both my kids are sick. They seem to be on the mend now, but it got pretty hairy with 2 kids having stomach flu. Now I'm feeling a little off, but at least I can take Pepto or something, that helps.

     Being a single mom, or any mom for that matter, makes for some hard decisions. I had to stay home with them yesterday, all the while feeling bad about flaking on the guy I'm working with. We are in the middle of a few projects and I know he is counting on me being there to help. Today Grandma (my mom) was able to sit with SPF, and I took HM to a daycare at a local hospital for moderately ill kids. (I love that place! They are staffed with nurses, and they take his temp., give meds., give advice, etc., such a GREAT idea! Drawback-super expensive, pretty much like working for free.) But then today I of course felt bad for leaving my sick kids. Can't win for loosing, it's crazy. But we are all home together now, and they are doing much better.  Now it is I who has a sick tummy, I guess it's more Pepto for me......

Grocery Bag Couture

     I found this small moment in time and would like to use it to share a few of our mishaps adventures with you.

      First a little tidbit that caused I, mommy dearest, the urge to punch a lady out! I was working at a local hospital,  and wheeling beside me one very big dust tent as I was waiting for the elevator. Another woman walked up and asked me in the most condescending way "Is this the regular people elevator?" I replied "BITCH, what do I look like? A mutant? Of course this is a for regular people you idiot!!" No, I didn't say that, but I thought it real loud!! Man was I yelling at her in my head! But no, I replied nicely "Yes, there is no freight elevator so we just use these, sorry. You can go ahead of me if you like." I guess some people just can't help but think of us lowly workers as just that-lowly workers.

     Second a funny from HM. He has a serious addiction to The Upside Down Show. It's this show that was invented by 3 friends smoking way too many of those stinky cigarettes creatively collaborating. The show is a bit annoying, but man he LOVES it!! So last night I noticed he knows the words, the moves, everything. Something akin to us and The Breakfast Club, or Grease, or The Rocky Horror Picture Show. (You know who you are!!) I found myself laughing hysterically at 'action fingers' and the 'rewind button' moves. This is a cute age, it was nice to enjoy that moment.

     I would like to end this post by leaving you with a few pics of SPF with her new Spring look- Look for it in Milan on the runways.

I give you Grocery Bag Couture:


    BTW- It took me 3 days to write this, sorry for the lack of posts.

Pure Joy

     It has come to my attention (thank you guilty overburdened self) that since I changed my header to include all those lovely pics, I have been neglecting to post pics in my posts. Since I have vowed to keep up on my blog while working and all, I need to do it right. No more slacking, no more, "I don't need pics, they all know how cute my kids are" thinking. So here are some recent snapshots of what I believe to be the world's best models. (I'm not sounding too conceited am I?)

This expression is straight from Grandpa (my dad), or at least I think so.

Pure Joy

Just as Cute as can be.

"Hey soul sista..."

Rock on girlfriend, mommy loves you. (Even if your room is a mess.)

Conspiracy Theory

     It's been a week since I posted, really? Wow, I have been busy. Let me see, working my butt off, and just too tired to even turn on my computer last weekend. I just wanted to drop a quick note as I made a commitment to keep blogging a priority.

     I dreaded to do it, but I checked my email right before this, man that was treacherous! I don't know about you, but email really irritates me. Not the getting an email part, but the whole email thing. If you don't stay on top of it daily, it piles up to the point of overwhelming. Well mine past that point, but I survived to blog about it.

     Navigating away from my email to my dashboard, Google no longer recognised my computer and I was prompted to enter passwords. (OK, another sign I am not keeping up with my blog, I get it.) Now I'm a little concerned because the passwords didn't work. Could someone have accessed my account? And if they did-are they gonna blog for me? I mean what would one gain? Anyway, normally I would just assume operator error, I mean it has been a week, but my computer remembers and automatically enters the passwords that I tell it to. So now my computer was wrong? I'm not convinced. I couldn't access anything. I had to get here in an unconventional way. Luckily I have this blog attached to 2 Gmail addresses, and I got in through another one. Kind-of strange though, that Blogger said my computer remembered password for that Gmail account was wrong the first 4-5 times, then all of a sudden it worked. Hopefully it was just a glitch, but I'm going with a conspiracy theory.

     Now I'm off to pick up the kids and take them swimming. Oh shit shoot, I gotta shave my legs! Maybe no one will notice........
