Season of Thanks

My 2009 Top Ten Thankful List

Of course, I'm thankful for my family, my friends, my health, my faith, but here are a few OTHER things that I am thankful for..........

1. The "Low Balance Alert" emails that I get from my friendly bank warning me "it's getting close"!

2. Online banking that makes it easy to make transfers from here to there when I receive those "alerts"!

3. My Lifetime Fitness Membership card in my wallet next to my Driver's License that makes it look like I work out.

4. Spanx!

5. The speaker phone on my cell phone so I can keep talking in those school zones!

6. Market Street's Thanksgiving promotion: "Get a Free Turkey for every $100 you spend!"
Lucky me has (3) turkeys worth $300 just waiting to be cooked!!

7. That we live in a country where we have Presidential elections every 4 that's some "Hope & Change" to look forward to......(only 1080 days to go)!

8. The Kardashian easy way to teach my girls HOW NOT TO ACT!

9. A good pair of tweezers!

10. Stouffer's.......the meal that makes me look like I've been cooking all day!

The Dinner Bell Has Lost Its Ding.

It is 9:52pm and this is still on the stove.
This is why I don't cook (often).

Glen got home and whined, "We ate at Logan's tonight, and I ordered my steak medium and it came out rare."

I made one of those little "wipe your eyes and go waa-waa noises" and rolled over and went to sleep, but not before telling him, "your dinner for the next 2 weeks is on the stove, you might need to heat it up."

The Law Against HITTING!!

Saturday morning was full of tears, fighting, and PUNCHING!

The only thing that I could think of to tell Hallie why it was highly unacceptable to PUNCH your sister in the back, ESPECIALLY while her cool friends are over and she has done absolutely nothing to you to deserve the PUNCH in the back.......was.......

"because you'll go to jail!"
There were no more questions after that.

After 2 weeks of Swine Flu suffering that turned into year I promise.......

*to be the POSTER child for getting THE FLU VACCINE!!!

*to be the POSTER child for getting THE PNEUMONIA VACCINE!!

*to NEVER say NEVER again!! (as in: "I NEVER get sick!")

*not to sign that little piece of paper at work that states "No Thanks. I do not want the Flu Vaccine and why."

I Promise!!

It Needs A New Name!

I'm going to officially RENAME the Swine Flu!! Pigs are too cute and sweet to have this dreadful thing named after them!!
I was feeling crummy on Monday anyways from the whole Lucy fiasco, but a sad crummy.........but by after work Monday night I started feeling a little sick crummy?? hmmmm???
By Tuesday afternoon, I was real sick 102 fever crummy....then by Wednesday..I was WOW lungs gunked up, head about to explode, fever of 103, can't lift your head up cause everything hurts (even my teeth hurt!), certainly can't open your eyes to get on Facebook (now that's crum-cum-crummy for me!!) So I crawled on into the Dr. and she confirmed it as the cute little "Swine Flu". I again battled this woman for some TamiFlu (if she ever comes down with this mess, I really want to be her nurse so that I can tell she has told me twice now..."I don't really think you need it, it doesn't do much good, it'll only make you feel better like by one day!") FYI.... "Ms. Dr." I've only had one dose and I feel good enough to make a blog about you...(I may be a little cranky though, but at least I can open my eyes today!)

So needless to say, I vote this horrible flu gets a new name like the "Buzzard Flu" or like the "Tarantula Flu" something, wicked and not cute.....cause that's what this junk is!!!

Will Always Love that Big Girl!

Lucy is not coming home.

After a long day of phone calls, sign making, picture posting, shelter visits, people stopping by to report Lucy sightings from Saturday, and even one sweet neighbor throwing me into her suburban as we shot down the road makeup-less and brazierre-less to scope out what she thought was a Lucy sighting........

Lucy is not coming home.

With help from the Hurst Animal Shelter it was discovered today that Lucy was actually NOT a "rescued" dog as we were led by 2 women to believe, but a "STOLEN" dog. Lucy had been reported stolen over 3 years ago by the family that she was reunited with on Saturday. We were led to believe by these women who represented themselves to be with "Paws of Paradise" that Lucy had been microchipped by their organization, when in reality the original family had microchipped her. That is how the connection was made on Saturday.

We are happy that they have been reunited, sad she is not here on her bed with us, and so mad that people can be so cruel.

Alot of mixed up feelings, and not really sure what I should do......write to the family, complain to "Paws of Paradise", cry a little more, be angry a little longer, but one thing is for sure...............

Lucy is not coming home and I'm sad.

I LOVE LUCY!......

and want her to come home!!
Yesterday, on Halloween of all days?? (Prank maybe?) our sweet, FAT, lazy, yellow lab, Lucy Girl, came up missing! She had been messing around with Glen in the driveway all morning and he put her in the backyard before we headed off to softball....... after the game we returned home to a closed gate and no Lucy. Lucy is most definitely too lazy to try and escape and over the 3 years we have had her, she has never ran away!Something smells shady about this to me?? I just hope if someone does have her they will return her to us. We miss our big Lucy Girl. She needs her bone and her bed!!
AND......We need her big soft head to kiss!!

Happy Haunting!!

Walmart...Meeting your every need....

Juice boxes......check!
Dr. Peppers.....check!
dog food......check!

No need in hustling down to the the local funeral parlor, if Grandma passes away, just go to!! They now have caskets for sale!! I have just a few questions about this?

1. Just how would that be delivered?

2. Will there now be an aisle at Walmart with Coffin displays?

3. Will they have that big yellow ROLLBACK sign above them with a smiley face?
4. Who buys a coffin at WALMART?

I would LOVE to see a customer wheeling that out of the store in their shopping cart and loading that up into their "Smart Car"!!

I guess Walmart's auto dept. will have to start selling hearses next, to get those darn things home!!

I can just envision them now!!!

TCU! Go (Kinder) Frogs!

This weekend we went to our FIRST college football game! I know!....I know!! We are some wild & crazy folks!!!
Our nephew is a KinderFrog at TCU and he was going to be down on the field at this game to help welcome the players as they ran out.

Riley's cheer team had also been invited to cheer at the Half Time Extravaganza! It was so much fun! The KinderFrogs were adorable! Riley and the other 649 cheerleaders were AWESOME during the half time show!
and US? Well, we had really good seats on TOP of the FROG HORN!

Scroll to the bottom of this page to preview tomorrow night's episode of
EXTREME MAKEOVER HOME EDITION....and get your tissues ready!

Jiffy Pop and the Afternoon News!

Seriously?! I have to remember that the next time I turn on FOX NEWS and there is a runaway balloon that resembles........... after it is fully popped on the stove....................

and the adorable Sam Shepard is reporting that a 6yr old little boy may just be trapped inside,

NOT to let myself sit there for TWO WHOLE HOURS waiting and watching to see how it's going to end! I had a fishy feeling as I was watching this object that resembled a flying saucer that something wasn't quite right?? For a few minutes, I thought that I just might be in the
Twilight Zone!

This one has HOAX of some kind written all over it!

ps....I am very glad the little boy is safe & sound though!

A Swine Flu Lock-In!!

The Swine Flu kept us indoors all day today, don't think that I didn't have EVERY window in this house open though! Shoo-Shoo...flu bugs!!!
Thank you so much to GiGi and Papa for coming by and throwing Hallie some FUN stuff to do from your car window as you sped by!! haha!! Just kidding....ok! from the end of the driveway!
(The PIG was a birthday gift, but I thought we needed to add him in the picture a "Swine Tribute" of sorts)! I took advantage of some stay home time and cleaned out this nasty pantry. A chore that I had been procrasinating to do for a while now!

It feels so much better when things are cleaned out, so why in the world do I hate to do it and put it off for as long as possible? Looks like I need to do some grocery shopping now!!

Tonight we are staying in and watching The Proposal, one of my all time favorite movies now, can't wait (hate to admit it, but somethimes it kind of nice to "have to" stay home)!!
Just hate that it is because of sickness!!

Swine Flu Hits Home!

Phooey!! Or more like SUEY!!!
Indeed, the SWINE FLU has wiggled its way into our home. Sadly, its first prisoner is Hallie May! She came home from school with a high fever, so off we went to the clinic to diagnose the obvious. She had called me this morning from the school nurse's office saying that her throat hurt, but she did not have a fever (as reported by the nurse), and that she was going back to her class.

Unfortunately, I had a head full of foils sitting under the hair dryer at the local beauty I was more than happy to hear that she was headed back to class (evidently to spread the Swine Love to her other classmates...mental note to self: feverishly apologize to them for this at a later date)! Geeez!!

After a very strange resistance from the Dr. about giving her Tamiflu, which was a very evident direct result of the country running out of this antiviral liquid the end, we got the medicine and hopefully, will lick this thing quick!

Glen, well, he's not taking any chances!!
