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!
andUS? Well, we had really good seats on TOP of the FROG HORN!
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!
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 too....as 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)!!
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 parlor...so I was more than happy to hear that she was headed back to class (evidently to spread the SwineLove 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 gold......in the end, we got the medicine and hopefully, will lick this thing quick!
You try to be a "cool mom" for your 7th grader who is down on the field cheering on her fellow studly classmate football players!! You go to all the games, with HER NAME ALL OVER your shirt, so EVERYONE KNOWS who you are cheering for........you flash her hundreds of thumbs up from the stands because she is doing such an amazing job out there! She is the greatest!! and I want to be the coolest for her and never embarrass her in any way............................until I stand up in the bleachers and FALL THROUGH!!!
Darn!! Did anyone see that? Did anyone notice? ummmm......well, I was on the FRONT ROW with my child's name ON THE BACK OF MY SHIRT blinged all out in rhinestones!!!! Of course THEY SAW! I KNOW they saw, from all the GASPS I heard from above!! But, I did not hang around to see who all was up there...I ran (ok....ran, dragging my left leg behind)!!
I am almost 100% sure that I will NOT be "Daisy Duke" for Halloween this year!
Today is the Middle School Pep Rally...I gotta go strap into my stilettos and see what kind of trouble I can get into on the gym floor!! ;)
Riley phoned me the other day after getting to school asking me to bring her something that she had forgotten. "Not a problem, " I said. So I hopped in the car and went up to the middle school where school had already began and the roads and parking lots where completely deserted of all frantic parents trying to get their kids to school before the dreaded tardy bell let out it's early morning shrill.
The parking lot was completely deserted....so I thought.....I would later find out.......that one man who wears a yellow and orange jacket, holds a red STOP SIGN, and I'm almost certain wears a badge of some sort pinned on his lapel..somewhere, was still lurking!
As I turned into the parking lot, I opted for the closest spot to the front door and to get there I had to zip in through the EXIT ONLY route. After a complete assessment of the parking lot, reassuring myself that not a soul was in site, I went for it.
Proud that I had safely arrived into the front spot of the parking lot, through the EXIT ONLY without hurting anyone......I hopped out and headed towards the front door of the school. Apparently, the "Officer of the Zone" hides out in the bushes after all have vacated the premises to wait on deliquents such as myself, because before my Skechers could hit the pavement,
I notice this coming at me out of the corner of my eye!
I was in for it! An early morning rant by the "Yellow & Orange Clad Officer", who felt he should compare the empty parking lot to a busy rush hour packed freeway?!
He went on to scream at me in a broken English/Spanish accent..........
"LADY! Do you know why you don't go the wrong way on a freeway?!"
"Well, yes, so you won't hit other people, " I replied.
"Do you know what you just did?" he quizzed.
"Oh! I know this one too! I just went into the EXIT ONLY!" I said.
He was not amused, and he threatened that "he better not ever catch me doing that again!"
Yikes! I bet I won't! and I just bet I might have to buy him a Segway for Christmas so he can catch hoodlums like me a little faster in the mornings!!
**disclaimer: Please don't get me wrong, I really appreciate all that this sweet man does to keep our kids safe each school day, and I do know how to read and technically I did enter the lot the WRONG WAY, but really a busy freeway compared to an empty parking lot??? Now really!?
