Oh Lordy

It's Monday. Blah! But the good news is only 5 more days till I go on vacation :)

But this week I have to.....

Finish Laundry - ahahahahah that's the funniest thing I've ever said. Finish laundry. Does anyone ever finish laundry?
Clean my house- again! Even though I JUST cleaned it, it will be amazingly dirty before we go, and I hate to come home to a dirty house.
Pack- clothes, food, towels, sunscreen, movies, books, Grey Goose, coolers....... I'm sure there are a hundred other things I should remember. Perhaps I'll make a list.
Stop the mail- even though it takes the mail person (I've never actually seen them so I don't know if it's a man or a woman- don't ask me how that is possible, I am not sure, as I've lived in my house for 6 years) forever to actually deliver the mail we received while we were gone.
Make sure there is plenty of kitty food and kitty litter- Lord knows you wouldn't want to starve the poor thing.
Make sure the world will not stop at work while I am away- Yes, I am fairly scared confident this is not a possiblity.

What things do you do to get ready for vacation?

Pretty girls

Aren't they pretty....
This is Cheerleader Girl and most of her best friends(sorry you couldn't make it SW) at her cook out on Sunday for her Birthday. (She is the 5th from the left).

I am so very fortunate that she chooses good girls to be her friends. This group of girls have been friends since the 6th grade (they're juniors now) and they are just a good group of girls..... Oh they have their "girl fights" but they always seem to come back to the thick of things.

Our house has always had an open door policy.... if it's unlocked, come on in. I'm sure gonna miss having them around when they run away to college. Hmmmm, I wonder if Cheerleader Girl will notice if I just camp out on her dorm room floor? You think so? yea me too- damn ;-)

Happy Birthday Cheerleader Girl!!!!!!

I love you!

Where does the time go?

This week is proving to be just as crazy as last week. Is that possible? I'm beginning to get a little scared- 2 weeks of crazy starts a trend - uh oh- could be trouble ;-)

To fill you in on the weekend....

Dinner with BHE and Cool Breeze. Too. Much. Fun! We had a blast. The rain didn't let up like we had hoped, but they brought their EZ-UP tent and with good drinks, it didn't seem to phase any of us. The Salseman cooked up some kick a$$ oysters and scallops on the grill and Cool Breeze some amazing steaks - the food was delicious and none of us noticed how fast the time flew by. I don't have any pictures... shame on me, but that's probably best - haha

Cheerleader Girl's competition - I don't recommend doing competitions after a night with really good drinks flowing. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't dying or anything, but competitions are loud and long and can wipe. you. out! They did amazing, so it all worked out in the end.

Monday got here really quick and proved to be as crazy as last week. I haven't been able to blog at all, and that is just depressing! Especially since I have so much to tell everyone about some crazy things that have happened over the last week. The good thing about today being Wednesday already is that 2 more days makes it Friday.... and that is just AMAZING!!

Hope everyone else is leading a wonderfully blissful life!

Confused <8-)

So it's snowing again today ??
I mean what is up with that?
It's not sticking to the roads, and barely sticking to the grass, but really???
As you may know, we had snow a couple weeks ago, 8+ inches of snow- and then 5 days after the snow, it was 80+ degrees, now 5 days later, its snowing again?
I am so confused.
Maybe we could blame Punxsutawney Phil? I mean he did predict 6 more weeks of winter.
Or perhaps Mother Nature is just angry with Virginia? Do you think it is because we are so close to Washington DC? Naw, that can't be it.
Oh well...
It is supposed to stop later today and although the ground will be wet and it will be a little colder than last weekend (like 50 degrees colder), my grill will still light, the fire pit will keep me warm, and the drinks and wine will still be flowing at the house tonight when BHE and Cool Breeze arrive.
Life is lookin' up!!!
Happy Friday EVERYONE!!!!

Mom x 2 needs....

So I’ve been kind of out of the loop this week. You would think after an AMAZINGLY beautiful, wonderful weekend that my week would have been a good one. Well it started off bad, and went downhill from there. I won’t spend a lot of time venting about everything, only to say work sucks – don’t get me wrong- I love my job- just not this week. Some people just don’t get it- EVER!!! You would think in a company with educated people, someone would have a clue- nope! Definitely not the case! I’ve dealt with teenage boy drama- it really sucks when your little girl is hurting. She’s better now, so therefore, am I. I’ve dealt with school drama- what is it with some teachers? Do they just not get that some kids need a little extra instruction?? At least the courtesy of answering a damn question with out making them feel like they just asked if the grass is green? I’m speaking specifically about a CALCULUS teacher!!! I know this doesn't apply to all teachers- actually not most of them- just my daughters Calculus teacher. I would like to note that the grades on this teachers last quiz ranged from a 16% (yes that is a 1 and a 6) to a 100%. But questions are frowned upon?? I am not generally a stressed out person- like everyone, I have stress, but for the most part I cope. I am coping this week, I have just been EXTREMELY pissy about it and not much fun to be around. Today is a MUCH better day- and tomorrow is Friday and my good friends BHE and Cool Breeze are coming over to have dinner with the Salesman and me so I see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Whew! With all of that said, BHE did this last month, and I kept forgetting to go back to do it. Today seemed like as good of a day as any. Google your first name followed by the word needs and list the first 10 things that come up. For example “Momx2 needs” Here is my list.

Momx2 needs to go back to school- aw hell nah- did you see the part above about calculus teachers?

Momx2 needs to get out of the house- most definitely, to someplace warm and tropical that serves fruity drinks with cute little umbrellas in them

Momx2 needs to come chill- okay- with whom and where? I’m game :)

Momx2 needs advice. Probably about a lot of things. Anyone have any they would like to share?

Momx2 needs sleep. Yep! I need to sleep until BHE and Cool Breeze show up at my house with drinks in hand.

Momx2 needs to realize she has a problem. I don’t have a problem (nevermind that ½ the things mentioned above- and below- refer to alcohol- what’s the problem?)

Momx2 needs a considerable raise in salary – see above! Duh :)

Momx2 needs to blow off steam. Hahah didn’t I just do that? Enough already!

Momx2 needs to get a life of her own. As if the life of my children is not enough ;)

Momx2 needs help getting to Cambodia. Wtf? Is it warm and tropical and do they serve drinks with cute little umbrellas in them? Anyone want to come along?

I hope everyone’s week is going well!

Ps- Wow! I should have been blogging all week. I feel MUCH better! Leave me some love, I feel my mood improving with every word I type!!!

Because I am not real focused today......

  • Why do I always seem to catch myself staring out the window at work? Wishful thinking I guess.

  • What the heck is wrong with Chris Brown? Is he stupid? Oh wait never mind… I’m pretty sure I know the answer to that question! By the way Did you hear they got back together?

  • My 401K- now it is only a 201K ;)

  • I think it’s weird that they have special cleaners for front load washers…. I mean it is a WASHING machine. I wonder where I can buy them, my washing machine needs a good wash.

  • Why don’t teenagers come with an instruction booklet and a money back guarantee?

  • Can you believe there is actually a West Virginia legislator who wants to BAN BARBIE? Why? Because he thinks it gives young girls an image that if you’re beautiful you don’t have to be smart. It’s freakin’ BARBIE!

  • I think I’m addicted to Vitamin Water. I love to read the stories on the sides of the bottles. Plus it’s something to drink with fewer calories than soda or sweet tea but taste better than regular water.

  • I never realized how many Tom Petty songs I really like and that I actually know the words to until they had a song block on the radio today.

  • I’m glad it’s Friday and I can enjoy the beautiful WARM weekend. Even if there is still snow on the ground! I hope all of you enjoy yours as much as I plan on enjoying mine!!

Cheers everyone!

It SNOWED! A lot! Well, a lot for us. Its the most snow we've had in several years. The kids have been out of school since Monday- 3 DAYS! I am going to have to apply for government bail out money to continue to feed them. They go back tomorrow! Thank goodness :) I got one snow day out of it.... that was enough for me.
Sunshine had a BALL in the snow! She chased the snowballs and wanted to be outside ALL the time. That wouldn't be a big deal except that she didn't want to be outside by herself and it was TWELVE degrees. Now, we ski, so we know about snow- we even like it- but TWELVE degrees is freaking cold.

It will be gone by the weekend- Spring is on the way with 75 degree temps for Saturday. Gotta love Virginia weather right?
