I meant to post a long time ago, but alas, I didn't.

Girly went to her regional science fair awards on April 15th. Out of 1000 kids in the county, she got a silver medal! She did awesome. She was very upset that she didn't get to go onto the state competition, but we reassured her that going onto regionals and winning a silver medal was nothing to scoff at! We are so proud of her. When I upload the photos, I will be sure to post them.

I also wanted to say that on May 4th,2009 I will have been a non-smoker for 2 months. On March 4th, Baby Boy and I were on a mission. He went on a Nuk detox, and I was on a nicotine detox. We did it together and now we are both free of our habits. I felt horrible taking away his nuk, and I felt like I was being a hypocrite for telling him he didn't need it and then I could turn around and walk outside for a smoke. It wasn't fair. So when we both had our fits, we could sympathize with each other. lol

The kids had their dentist appts. last Wed. Crazy had his 1st cavity. It didn't surprise me, as he eats to much junk and doesn't brush his teeth as well as he should. But Girly also had her first cavity around that age. She hasn't had any since her permanent teeth have come in. So on Monday, he gets to go in and have it filled.

This is the last weekend of spring break. I don't know why I bother to call it a spring break, it was nothing close to a break. Here is how our week went.

Monday-Dr. appts. with shots
Tues.- Get Girly to science fair thingy to do her setup and judging.
Wed.- Dentist appts.
Thurs.- Get Crazy to his school to do some prepping for Pre-K graduation.
Friday- we actually didn't have anywhere to go on this day, so I did all the yard work and helped Crazy plant his pumpkins.
Sat.-Hub's old Marine Corps friend came to visit, so we grocery shopped and cleaned up the house.
Sunday-I am sitting here playing on the computer and drinking coffee. Ahhh a day off????? I doubt it! lol

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Well yesterday was the 1st weekday of Spring Break and the kids went in for their shots. Crazy for his Kindergarten ones, and Girly for her 11 yr. tetanus booster. Fun times I tell ya, fun times. The whole morning started out crappy. Our appt. was at 9 am and they didn't call us back till 10:45. Then they proceed to tell me that Crazy is going to have to give a urine sample. You mean you couldn't tell me that an hour and 45 mins ago while we were waiting? Sorry, uh this 4 yr. old already went. Do you know how hard it is to try to force a 4 yr old boy to peed on command, then expect to catch it in the a cup the size of a dixie cup? Yah, it's hard. Then, they proceed to tell me that they don't have the tetanus booster for Girly. They are out. Uh, you couldn't tell me this an hour and 45 mins ago either? Yah, guess not. Then the worst part...having Crazy sit on my lap and cry because the shots hurt. I thought it wouldn't be as bad because he's not a little baby anymore, but it was almost worse when they are older and you can't shove a pacifier or boob in their mouth! lol Poor guy. But he got suckers, and stickers and candy and a toy for doing so well. I guess they are gunning for the dentist too!

Girly took off this morning for her regional science fair setup and judging. She was a nervous wreck, but after allot of reassuring and getting her hair and makeup done, she felt better. I guess tomorrow night when we go back to San Bernadino for the awards ceremony, we will once again see if her hard work paid off. So much for her spring break. Every day, except Friday is booked!
