Forgive me Father.....

    Ok, so we were recently at our church for Family Fun Night.  It was fairly nice out so my husband and son decided to walk as we only live a couple of blocks away and my daughter had already gone up earlier and I drove since I had food to bring.

     Reesey and I thought it would be funny if we jumped out and scared the boys when they came into the church (ok so it was mostly me), so we hid on either side of the frosted windowed doors waiting for them to come down the stairs.  When we could see my husband's dark-colored jacket through the doors, we jumped out (me the louder one of course) and yelled RAAAH! 

     All that know me know that I am the biggest dork spaz, that said... As it turns out, it was not my husband or son to come walking through the was the pastor from the other church in our town of whom I had never met and I had just scared the crap out of him!  I was so embarrassed!  I apologized and apologized some more and told him "I'm so sorry, I thought you were my husband" and his reply was "oh, how long have we been married?"  He was very kind about it.  Of course my daughter just slinked off to go play elsewhere without a care in her little 8-year-old little world.  Of course who should come walking through the doors not even a minute later but my husband and son.  I could've died.    

     We ended up chatting and making light of it throughout the evening then playing a great game of Yatzee!   It was a great Family Fun Night and I have definitely learned my lesson, do not scare unless you have a confirmed visual!!

Never a Dull Moment

     So I was driving my daughter home from dance class this past week and she piped up from the back seat and said "Mommy, what's a virgin?"  I almost wrecked the car.  This is not something that should be coming out of an eight and a half year olds mouth.  I of course was completely taken off guard.  I looked at the radio and thought... what song is playing?...and a million other things flew through my mind in a nano second.  Not wanting to lie to her I told her reluctantly that it's someone who has not had sex before.  Duh!!  Why did I not say it is a non-alcoholic drink or even its someone who hasn't done 'something' before.  Anyway, she then proceeded to say "well then that's inappropriate!"  Huh?  I get that this is not a normal conversation but, I was really confused.  I then said "honey, what do you mean?"  and then I got this....."That van said Iowa Virgin's Home on the side of it!"  Trying really hard not to laugh, I said to her, "Honey, are you sure it didn't say Iowa Veterans Home?"  Her response was "yeah, I bet it did...."   Ah....never a dull moment with this one.... I love you Reese's Pieces!

The Tooth Fairy Was Here...Again This Week

     The Tooth Fairy has been to our house three times in the last week for our son.  You would think this little fairy would be broke what with inflation and all.  Remember when we were kids and the Tooth Fairy would come and the next morning we were so excited she had left us a shiny quarter under our pillows.  A Quarter! That was like 25 tootsie rolls!  Not so much anymore.  My son had once gotten fifty cents and said is that all, so and so got five bucks! What! Five Bucks! I'm guessing the Tooth Fairy was fumbling around in her bag in the dark on that one.  Well, here we sit bracing ourselves for the next tooth and waiting impatiently for all of the money to come. Just think of all the tootsie rolls we could buy.....

Confused Kitty

     I saw this commercial today and thought is was absolutely hilarious!  I often wonder what our cats are thinking as they sit there looking innocent.  Are they secretly plotting our demise for not feeding them that delicious food we put in our pie-hole and force them to eat the not so yummy crap that we make them put in theirs?  I have one that can open doors (depending on the doors) but I swear if he could talk he would say "curse you and your opposable thumbs!"  Then again I could be wrong...they do lick themselves.  Enjoy and please adopt a pet!!

Are You Kidding Me

     It started out like any other typical morning.  I told the kids to get up and get ready for school.  Ten minutes later I told them again and ten minutes after that I yelled it.  As the zombies that were not yet my children stumbled down the stairs to gather their things to get out the door as fast as it was humanly possible for us in the mornings, the cat that is Zeus politely threw up at my feet.  I quickly clean that up, shooed the kids out the door and into the car where we drove to our desired location.  At least once a week before school as a treat we go to our favorite coffee shop to have hot chocolate, coffee and breakfast and chat with others who might be up at the crack of dawn like us.
     On this particular day I had decided to wear white pants, which I rarely wear (mostly because I’m a klutzy slob).  I also got my coffee to go that day...BIG MISTAKE!  Got the kids to school and I was two blocks from work (two flipping blocks!) and I went to take a drink, the cup slipped out of my hand, upside down, in my lap, down my seat, on my white pants (OMG, OMG, HOT, HOT, IT BURNS, IT BURNS!) I get to work and I swear it looked like I had eaten a bag of those chips with olean in them... it was awful.  White pants + black Italian roast coffee = bad.  I unfortunately (yeah right) do not have a picture of this momentous occasion, even though I was asked by several of my co-workers if they could take one.  Thank goodness I had the good sense to say no!

I'm so excited I could pee!

    It's almost here!  The One for the Money movie!  Although I'm not entirely thrilled about the casting with the exception of Sherri Shepherd playing Lula, the movie looks really good.  I can't help but wonder if the casting director bothered to read the first book or any of the books for that matter.  Ranger is completely wrong (what, no ponytail?) and if you don't remember, in the first book, he was a homeboy thug.  Stephanie is supposed to have blue eyes and curly hair, and really....isn't Morrelli suppose to be HOT? Oh well, I'm still excited to see it with my band of bitches and love every minute of it...
