Icky, Sicky Weekend

The flu has hit us hard!

First on Friday, we went to the mall so the kids could see Santa. Then, we went out to eat to celebrate Girly's excellent report card. We let her chose the restaurant and everything. She went with good ol Outback. lol Things were going well, the food was good, and everyone was happy.

And....after we got back from dinner, our friends were at the house and I was greeted with this...

That's right, this is the cherry limeade I had been after for the last couple months!
But, although the cherry limeade was excellent, it was not quite up to par.....

Does anyone else see what is missing in this photo???
That's right, after closing early on me, and depriving me of my cherry limeade, those bastards skimped on the cherries. I usually drink like a madman just to get down to the cherries. Ahhh well, it was good though!!! lol

But no sooner did dinner end, and we get home and get the kiddies to bed, the puking started. Girly got the brunt of it. She was sick all through the weekend. Today, it is Baby Boy's turn. White as a sheet, and I have done more wash then I care to admit! lol It seems to be coming out of every nuk and cranny that boy has! lol So as I am dealing with that today, i just know that within the next couple days, it will be Crazy's turn, then Hubs and mine. I just hope it comes and goes before Christmas!!

Fluffy, White Stuff

You know what sucks? When you can see the snow capped mountains from your front yard, but yet you have no snow on the ground. Yes it's cold, below freezing in the morning, but not being able to reach out and touch the cold, white stuff is depressing. Brings back allot of memories. Growing up in Michigan, you never, ever have a lack of the white stuff. Snow ball fights, snow forts, ice ball fights (yeah those were fun, ice balls to the face hurt like hell lol)and catching snow flakes on your tongue. Yes, I think this is the most depressed I have been in a while. Maybe we should take a trip up to the mountains to get our fill of old man winter!

Oh and I tried to take a pic of those beautiful mountains, but the damn smog rolled in and I couldn't get a decent shot! lol

Bitch and Moan


That's about it. Just fed up. In a pissy mood and people keep fueling the fire. People suck!

A little Christmas cheer

As my friend and I were driving back from Bakersfield last night, we stopped by a Starbucks to get some caffeine. Before we had a chance to pay for our drinks, the lady asked us if she could ask us a question. She asked if we could name all of Santa's reindeer. Of course, I was put on the spot simply because I have the kiddos and my friend knew I would know. So because I am a dweeb, I immediately started singing the Burl Ives version of Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer in my head. I recited all the reindeer, including Rudolph and won us a free drink!!! lol That's the first (and probably last) time I have ever received anything free from Starbucks. But it was nice to see some Christmas cheer so late at night and especially from a Starbucks employee.

And you know what put a big ol damper on that Christmas cheer? It was the fact that we drove 2 hours to a place that happens to have a Sonic and the damn place was closed when we got there. Can you believe that?? I was drooling for a cherry limeade by the time we got done with our engagement,and when we got there the place was closed up tighter then a virgin. Ahh well, we'll make another trip soon and this time I wont leave without my cherry limeade!!!

Past and Present

He was wearing the damn bucket then... at Halloween

And he is still wearing it Christmas time

Why does he insist on wearing that stupid Weinersnitzel bucket everywhere? To the store, to the post office (which by the way was a VERY entertaining experience), and in the car. He refuses to take it off his head. Ahh well, at least it can be used as his helmet in case he falls or rams into a wall or something right?

Why is it so difficult?

Can anyone tell me why every year I have this big pain in my ass called the Christmas card family portrait?

Why is it so hard to get a family pic taken in front of the damn tree?

Why is it that every time I try to get it done the kids are screaming or running around like mad people?

Why is it after several attempts the pics are to dark or blurry?

Ugggh, I love to send out cards with at least a semi current pic in it, but this year if I don't hurry and get a decent pic it will just be a plain old card.

But I did get a couple of the kids in front of the tree. Of course I had to bribe the boys with candy cane Hershey kisses in order to sit still for two seconds and give me a decent smile! lol

Better then Sex!

Okay ladies, you all know that shopping is better then sex right? Hahahaha well, at least a close 2nd ahhh? lol

Yesterday a friend and I spent 9 hours shopping! It was FABULOUS! No kids. No husbands. No whining, crying, kicking, screaming or "Mama, I want THAAAAT's!" It's been years since I have been able to get out and shop without being accompanied by little people. Although, I did receive numerous phone calls throughout the day wondering where I was, when I would be home, and if I was going to be getting dinner for everyone. lol Uhhh no, I am getting dinner for me, me and only me! lol

We hit numerous stores and the mall too and did I come home with anything for me?? Yep. A chapstick. That's right. A gosh damn chapstick and a little cute ladybug notepad. Geesh. lol All the money was spent on the chillens that I moan and whine about on a daily basis. But Gosh I love those little terds. So even when they aren't with me, they still get my full attention!

But either way it was lots of fun and a whole day to myself.
