Star vs Angel?????

VS.












So my bloggy friends and people who read my blog (all three of you...) what do you put on top of your tree...(providing you have one) or if you don't celebrate Christmas what would you????

Me, I want an Angel always always (have I mentioned always yet????) an Angel. I think it's pretty and I like it.....

Steven on the other hand wants a Star and we've never had a Star on top of our tree. This year he used Lizzie to get his way....yes, he talked her into a Star, so I being the big pushover I am ordered her one of Ebay. So, we took down the Angel and now have a Star on the tree...it just doesn't look the same to me.....

SIGH!!!!!!!

Chestnut's Roasting on an open fire...`




(that is sooo not my tree)

It's the most wonderful time of the year...I love it..CHRISTMAS is here. It's actually the first Christmas in FOREVER that I feel like celebrating. (Just ask my checkbook)~ Scrooge, errr I mean Steven, is not...might be because I've been spending like it's D-Day. (sooo not kidding there).

So, do you have your Christmas shopping done?? Mine is, well except for the little things I've been picking up here and there....

Wanna know a secret.....a funny funny secret...ok here it is shhhhh don't tell anyone..



that is what we bought Kat for Christmas, but (and here's the funny secret here)...Steven has been using the camera since..oh HALLOWEEN..because Liz accidentally dropped ours off the plane last summer and the lens broke..(I did buy a new one and it's on the way)..

TOW: I Break My Foot



Isn't it pretty??? Yep it was!! I got to go to the real German
doctor and get some real neat German drugs...YAY ME!!!

Here's my story (and I'm sticking to it!!)

I volunteered to be the Outdoor Food chair at our Fall Bazaar (felt more like winter to me), it was a pain in my *** or better yet a pain in my foot.

One of my 'duties' was to set up outdoor food tents with tables and benches..Well in the setting up of the tables and benches I dropped said table on my foot. It hurt!!! I went to the EMS tent when it first happened and they said I was fine so I walked around on it for about an hour or so..it really started to hurt so I went ot talk to my friends and they looked at it and said it looked broken..Called the EMS people again and I was sent to the hospital..My knight in shining armor CARRIED me to the car and we went to the German doctor...The German doctor was so nice and FAST!!! They also gave me some great drugs..(which I thought was ibuprofen until I felt really warm and fuzzy).

Well, Steven wasn't happy that I still went back to the bazaar and finished my duties and helped out where I could because I felt I needed to!!! (the German drugs were helping too)

So I'm 'supposed' to be on a pair of crutches now, but I can't walk on them so I'm just well doing what I can until my foot starts to hurt and then I sit down and rest (I might be milking it a bit also...just saying) Just kidding Steven!!!

Veteran's Day



It's Veteran's Day...a day to thank those that have ensured that we have the freedom that we have gotten used to.

So a big THANK YOU to the Veteran's Past and Present!!!

There's a lot more I could say, but honestly this song says it all...

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for
you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.

One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

Kat: What's a glutus maximus???

Me: Your butt...

That's all I have for today..please go back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Whew!!!!

Boy sometimes you just get busy!!! When do you know too much is too much???? When you fall from exhaustion? When the kids think their life is to 'go to meetings'? I think I'm about there. I don't have a 'real' job per say but I do volunteer ALOT apparently. Why, you ask?? because if I had to stay home I'd go C.R.A.Z.Y. (Maybe I'm already there!!) What exactly do I volunteer at?? Well let's go there..

1) OCSC (for you civilians--Officer's Civilian Spouses Club--think ladies who lunch ;) ) --I do the newsletter...not too much about once a month I put it together and another day I edit and pitch it in people's mailboxes.

2) Bazaar Board--Outdoor Food Chair...We have a bazaar every year--this year I'm the outdoor food chair..I'm responsible for the outdoor food vendors..make sure everything works..blah blah blah..blah blah blah...I only did this because someone said it was 'easy'..LIARS...or should I say I've got SUCKER written on my forehead!!

3) PTSA President -- Now that is EASY simply because I have great people working with me..(should you every find this blog..thank you ladies)

4) Daisy Scout Leader -- this was only because Lizzie couldn't get in the troop unless they had another parent stepped up...however...I don't really have to do anything except come to the meetings...which I would do anyway because it's what Lizzie wanted to do.

I'm not answering my phone anymore...just in case someone asks me to do something...

Now, I've got to go make some desserts for Steven's squadron's dessert auction tommorrow...

Anything you want me to do??????? Just ask me I've got SUCKER written on my face....

AHHH life is BACK to NORMAL!!




Steven went back to work today...(Can I get a big YAY from the crowd??...only me well ok..)

I tell you I seriously NEEDED him to get the hell out of the house and leave me alone go back to work.

Yesterday no kidding...he was on my LAST nerve (one I didn't even know I had..but he was ON it!!!) he would talk and it was like someone would take their nails to the chalkboard. My skin would crawl, I'd have goosebumps up and down my body, and I would physically CRINGE!@!!!

Now don't get me wrong...I love the man, but too much time together does not do good things to us..He was trying to ASSERT HIS AUTHORITY (anyone hear Cartman from South Park there???) in this house the whole time he was home. From the I know how to do laundry (and why isn't it done every day?? but boy can he make the whites white!!) to the fighting with Katherine...

All in all....I would've had to be bailed out if he'd stayed home ANY longer..

Now back to 'real' life around here...

SIGH...it's good to be home!!

I love the military life...seriously I do, but..All my friends are leaving me this next month...EVERY FLIPPIN ONE OF THEM. How the flip can they do this to me?? Who am I going to gossip with??? go to lunch or dinner with??

I'm going to be one lonely bugger here. I know I know..put myself out there and find new friends but it's really hard at this base...everyone around here is clicked and the people in Steven's peer group generally have no kids, so for us to go somewhere we'd have to find a babysitter and well need I remind anyone how expensive that is??? Heck Katherine..the fruit of my very own loins...charges me $3. an hour and REMINDS me of how cheap she is and how very nice she is to be doing this for me...(Extortionist!!!!!)

I do alot around the base, but I feel the people I come into contact with aren't 'real' friends...

I'm so depressed right now..It hit me at the Air Force Ball on Saturday night when I was looking around and seeing all the people with their friends, taking pictures, dancing, having fun and I had NOONE...NOONE wanted to take a picture with me...noone wanted me to dance with them...NOONE..

Ahhh sigh....

Ahhh TV I miss you so!!

Here I am going through my 5 15 channels of television...woohoo a whole 15!!! And there is nothing on but CRAP!!! I got to thinking of how when I was in the states I was addicted watched a lot of television. I miss good TV. I miss commercials...yes I do...Here we have AFN commercials and I do consider myself an EXPERT on things such as:

OPSEC (Operations Security)...aka keep your damn mouth shut.

How to get rid of classified information--and who's going to beat on you if you don't.

What channel to listen to for updates about base activities.

What a life!!!

I do miss stateside television...

The FOOD NETWORK...every show...I watched that for about the first month...I figured I had watched it too much when I started to see ***gasp**** re-runs.

Rock of Love..cheesy but Brett Michael has ALWAYS been a hottie..not the brightest bulb in the chandelier but heck he looks good so who cares???

Army Wives...seriously who watched the finale...I got to read about it online but **gasp** OMG.

I think that's about all...maybe...or it's just what I cared about...

Monday, August 27, 2007

Just another Manic Monday

whoa o...o...(you know you're singing it!!)

Katherine started school again today (GRADE 7) and Lizzie went to Kindergarten orientation. Wow, I'm getting old and just where did the time go I'd like to know??

I am so tired though...we went to Katherine's school (all day flippin long) so I could see her classes and meet her teachers..(ok I really didn't care, but I had to be there anyway as the president of the PTSA...yes I'm a SUCKER!!)

Anywho..I'm trying to ebay the kids some halloween outfits now..They however are ANGRY that I didn't win some.....Lord have mercy what do they want me to do?? Pay $100 per costume?? (don't answer that I'm sure I know the answer to that one)

So, Dilemma of the Day:

Kat (trying to help me) buys something off of ebay and pays for it out of my paypal acct...the people she bought from charged 85.90 shipping to get it to me...

I cancelled and put a stop payment on the payment ($29.00--came out of her allowance) and wrote the seller requesting they NOT send it to me and told them I cancelled the payment...they shipped anyways...

SO, what do I do when it gets here?? return to sender...keep it and donate it to the church for them trying to **** people up the yim-yang on shipping???

Let me know..

Friday, August 24, 2007

Where the heck have I been???? or What did I do this summer???

Back in the States Again

Well, my bloggy friends~~ I decided after the last couple of weeks I had that I needed a 'mental health break' so I hopped back to the states (Space A) and am here in the nice HOT weather now. I plan to do a couple of beach days and well some other things while I am here..

Let me tell you about Space A travel though..it's not for the faint of heart.

We sat in the terminal in Ramstein for 3 days trying to get out. We got on one plane to Dover (Delaware) and the plane broke. So, we were bumped. Finally the third day we got on a plane to McGuire (New Jersey). We were on a C-17 Cargo plane that was full of cargo and we sat on the jump seats. The kids were B.O.R.E.D. and you know what happens when my kids get bored...Hell ensued. They stayed awake for 8 hours of the 9 hour flight. I finally got to sleep for about an hour. Then when we landed we hopped a shuttle to Philly airport and rented a car.

I spent 12 hours of a car trip yelling at Connor to get back in his seat and put his damn seatbelt on.

Gotta love space-A however because it was FREE. FREE. FREE.

OK must go to Wally-World for now..Boy do I love~love~love that place.

When It Rains It Pours..

Noah came over with some animals today...

Why? Well it seems my house was under 3 inches of water and he thought it was the ark.

Seems my kids (or possibly one of the kids in the apt. above us) threw a washcloth, a diaper and a thing of makeup down the drain and it all backed up into MY house.

Lucky me...

I have sucked up no less than 12 buckets of water on my machine..plus the huge one housing maintenance sucked up with theirs..

My Tequila: Well, I was going to mop the floors anyhow..so I ran around and threw some Lysol on the floor when we were getting the water off...

Off to do more laundry now..since EVERY towel, sheet, and or piece of clothes I could find in the house is wet...

Ciao.

I <3 Pay Per Post!!!

I think we all know I <3 a lot of things... Pay Per Post is one of them. I've been a 'postie' for around six or so months.

Here's where you can go...just clickie...make money blogging

I found Pay Per Post on another Bloggers page (and No I don't remember who's) and decided heck I wanna make some money blogging and become one of the 'Cool' Kids. Pay Per Post is the greatest I've made approximately $30.00 so far and it goes straight to my paypal account...you know the one I reserve for my online shopping addiction.

I enjoy reading everyone's PPP posts because as we know I am ALWAYS looking for something new. PPP is a great way to get to know people..(HELLO COLLEEN YOU ARE MY IDOL) and learn new blogging techniques.

I recommend everyone sign up for Pay Per Post and try it out!!!

Just call me Mrs. Robinson



I have a little problem here friends. I mean how many times is the neighboorhood going to see my tata's??? The kids' I mean..

First Time: I was taking a shower, singing Fergalicious, having a good ole time...you know- one where you got to shower by yourself..and I look up and notice that there are about 7 heads outside my shower...I ONLY HAVE 3 KIDS..where did these extra heads come from??? stick my head out and there are the neighboorhood kids...deciding now is the EXACT time to ask me if they can have a popsicle...Lucky me my shower is beveled otherwise they would've seen more than they wanted to I Promise!!!!


What did I say?? YES, c'mon you know they had me between a rock and a hard place.

Second time: Last night I was getting ready for bed and looked up when 4 little boys from the neighborhood were looking in my window and said..no kidding "Hi Ms. Becky"..yep you got it they all got a look at the tata's..Probably was fine as I'm about as developed as a 13 year old girl. But anywho, these kids were out at 8:30 ON A SCHOOL NIGHT..So, when someone's mother come's to my door..I'll make sure to inform said woman that 8:30 on a school night is a bit late for the little boogers to be out and looking in my window is probably not cool either..

I just turned in a 6 page philosophy paper...MY topic you ask??? Why retroactive birth control is moral and ethical...NO you don't believe me? Well..Ok it was how the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy is morally wrong.

Let me know what you think about it.

Tales of a Teenage Drama Queen.




Gotta love em when they are teenagers, I tell you...Ok sometimes not..but we are supposed too..

I have the ORIGINAL drama queen my friends...12 years old and a drama queen..so much so today she accused me of *child abuse*..Yes I am an Abuser...at least if an abuser does such things like:

~~ expect her to do her chores..and the *gasp* first time I ask

~~ expect her to do her homework.

~~ expect her not to talk back...

~~ expect no lying and stealing.

~~ expect well nothing else..gosh she's right I am sooooo mean..probably deserve that mean mother award...Toni you can sent that over anytime you want.

So, what may you ask preceded this *child abuse* charge. Well...she actually went to school and cried and told the teachers I slap her and pull her hair...

BUT WAIT she told two different teachers two entirely different stories. OH yes...HELLO rule number one..stick to one story....

Anyhow there I was called and told I had to go to family advocacy..(again...) and I called family advocacy and told them straight up.."If I couldn't discipline my daughter and she could throw around any old accusation then I was packing her shit and bringing her to them..." Yes I DID..

Did I make her pack her bag: Your damn tootin I did...this is a power struggle if SHE thinks she is going to win..she is sadly mistaken..

What happened at family advocacy you ask??? Well, he (the counselor) got that she was a drama queen and basically said I had to not help her with her drama..blah, blah, blah..and that he felt she was a difficult child...I wanted to say "you think????"

Then he brought both of us together and basically told her I was the mother and she was the child...PERIOD.FINITO.END OF SENTENCE and she needed to listen to what I said and do what I told her too.

VINDICATION is so sweet my bloggy friends...

Confession time here: I soooo want to pull her hair and slap her so she knows what it feels like though..but instead I'll go take a HOT bath and eat a candy bar.

I KNEW

I knew it was going to be a B.A.D. day from the time I woke up (was woken up rather rudely--I'll have you know) by Lizzie who turned on my light at 5 (flippin) thirty this morning with a "mommy you've slept enough"...I said No my dear I haven't come watch TV in mommy's room...

From there it went something like this:

~~Wake up and realize wow my back hurts, my throat hurts, my ears are ringing..Oh SHIT I think I'm getting sick..I don't have time to get sick...grab two aspirin and pretend I feel fine...

~~Go to the post office to send a box to Steven and OF COURSE they were out of boxes, tape,etc..so I had to go get said items..


~~Go get said items and my total at checkout was $6.66 (no kidding..) now I'm not superstitious but HELLO even I'm not going to mess with that one..quick grab another candy bar (like I needed another candy bar)

~~OH yeah and my house looks like *ASS right now..I need to clean and I don't feel good...OH AND NO CHOCOLATE IN THE DAMN HOUSE...

In my Spotlight for today is Kristin of Motherhood Uncensored

Go check her out.

To Make or Not to Make that is the Question?



Another post about Katherine..anyone seeing a pattern here???

See she is in Civil Air Patrol and doesn't really want to do it anymore...I'm not actually sure she wanted to do it in the first place...I think her father did and she wanted to make daddy happy.

I asked her her reasons for not wanting to do it and they were:

1) Daddy's not here..no sense in it.

2) I can't have pink hair...(oh yeah that was a selling point for me)

3) But MOMMMMMMMM.....

So, here the question became...

Is it because there really aren't any girls in it...it's all boys..

Do you not want to do it because you...gasp....have to run and be active?

Do you not want to do it because you have to study for tests....(and we ALL know school isn't her strong suit)

Do you not want to do it because you'd rather laze around the house???

Now, we know me I'm all about not taking her...I don't have to go to the place (about 30 minutes away) and stay there for 2 1/2 hours finding something for the younger ones to do while waiting on her. Heck, I'd rather stay home and clean watch TV also....but she did promise her father a year..and it hasn't been that..

Oh what to do ....what to do.....

The Curse



You know the one I'm talking about...The one every mother gives to their offspring when we are being exceptionally bad...

'I hope you have one just like you'

See, I knew my mother was a witch for a long time..it wasn't just the evil eye, the seeing what I was doing around corners, the way she was able to look at me when I came in and know I had been up to something. It was her ability to turn her head around three times and puke green (oh wait that may have been the excorcist...anyways...)

Her curse has come true..according to her at least..

She says Kat gets her mouth and attitude from me..I don't remember being this mouthy when I was younger..I'm sure IF I had I would've been knocked into next week -- or my teeth would've been knocked out of my head.

She says I didn't like to clean either..but I did..oh did I...again..If I was as lazy as her I would've been knocked clear into next week..(do we see a pattern emerging here?) Heck I don't like to clean now but it's not like I ask her to do much..a little cleaning every day..goes a long way..

As for Lizzie and Connor..if that was anyone's curse it was Steven's...I was NEVER that bad..I'm telling you...

Anyhow...how's that curse working out for you?

Monday, May 14, 2007

Monday Monday

Oh did I mention it was monday yet???

Let's see where were we??? Oh yep Monday.

Sunday went to church..It was a nice service.

Boy am I B.O.R.I.N.G. seriously

Well, that's a toothbrush down the drain..Connor seems to think my toothbrush is the ideal thing to brush his feet, toes, chest and ummmm male parts..lucky me...

Tell me a story....something..

Forgive Me

Forgive me my bloggy friends for I have sinned:

I haven't been on here lately because I've been having a pity party for one. You see my friends..Steven has left for FOUR freaking months to the sandbox..and left me with the devil's spawn.

They are already starting awful--I mean it can only get better from here on right??? First thing yesterday I asked Lizzie to pick up her toys and put them away and gave her 30 minutes...Did she do it?? OF course not silly's..So, I took them down to the basement and told her I threw them away. (I'll give em back in about two weeks or so.) And Katherine OMG. I asked her to help me by picking up the living room floor so I can start on the 'daddy's gone..let's clean up the house REALLY good while he's not going through my trash bag..insisting he NEEDS this stuff cleaning' and it took her OVER an hour to pick up a small stretch of floor..ughhhh

Then S got to come home for the night and we went to a last dinner with friends and left the kids here..and they went W.I.L.D. No kiddding..Kat was throwing cans of coke off of my balcony because she was "bored" ughhhhh...Grounded already?? I hope that this is their acting up and they'll get better or???

Ok back to pity party..table for one please.

Sunday, May 06, 2007

In the Spotlight today is my very own sister...Jennifer


Jennifer is well my sister...She's a mother of two...(and yes Jennifer we CAN trade Ari for Katherine. I'll take Kat back when she's ohhh 18 and if I like her she can stay.) Jennifer is going back to school, umm dealing with the devil..(I mean my mother). And doesn't blog nearly as much as she should..

Go visit her and say HI..from me.

I.M.M.A.T.U.R.E

So, at what age did your kiddos start babysitting?

Katherine SHOULD be able to babysit now..She's 12 and has taken the Red Cross (required) babysitting course. But, she can't--we have a hard time trusting her to watch herself ...no less her sister and brother (referred to from here on as the demon spawn).

I remember when I was her age I was babysitting like a mofo...all the neighborhood kids. For HOURS UPON HOURS UPON HOURS...I had quite the business. All kinds of money to spend..well, you know the drill

Katherine on the other hand cannot be trusted. She blames it on the demon spawn. I blame it on her immaturity and unability (is that a word??) to keep her nose out of a book or her eyes off the television set for more than oh say 20 seconds and therefore, the demon spawn tend to do things like get into the sugar and throw it ALL OVER THE FLIPPIN KITCHEN, take out EVERY toy they have into the livingroom, TAKE out all the movies out of my cabinets. Well, you get the idea.

She wants me to trust her to watch the demon spawn (I told you I was referring to them as that the rest of the post...don't judge) and be PAID...(Do I seriously have to pay my own child...you know the one I feed, clothe, etc. to do this???) hahatrust?? I'm pretty sure I would come back to Katherine tied (or duct taped) to one of the chairs and the spawn standing over her with a sword.

Tell me oh great internet friends....what to do oh what to do????

Stress...

Ok admit it we are all stressed at times. Me more than others since I live with "they who can destroy the house in 30 seconds flat..."...(seriously they can). Add that to the fact I have become 'she who does not know how to say NO to people' and I have a PROBLEM. At least one of my stress factors is gone (bye bye Stats class..) I only have 362 others to take it's place...I ran across this on the internet (or email..who know) the other day and thought hmmm good advice.


The Ten Commandments to a Stress free Life.
1. You shall not be perfect, or even try to be. ~~ Got that one down to a tee..

2. You shall not try to be all things to all people.

3. You shall sometimes leave things undone. ~~Yes and then inevitably some idiot will show up at the house and boom you're a 'dirty person'

4. You shall not spread yourself too thin.

5. You shall learn to say “no”.

6. You shall schedule time for yourself. ~~Yep I'll work on that one...oh but wait in scheduling time for yourself remember babysitting is $5/hr per kid.

7. You shall switch yourself off, and do nothing regularly. ~~ no problemo

8. You shall not even feel guilty for doing nothing, or saying no. ~~even when people give you the 'sad' face.

9. You shall be boring, untidy, inelegant, and unattractive at times. ~~oh yeah I have that one down...seriously if I don't have to get dressed..well you can see where this is going.

10. You shall not be your own worst enemy. But, be your own best friend. ~~Well I have to since I don't have a 'best' friend..shoot sometimes I feel I don't have friends at all

Spotlight Sunday


Well since I'm finished with the class the devil invented....(Statistics). I figured I LOVED this idea from a bloggy and IRL friend of mine..so here it is ..my first one..(oh yeah and I S.T.O.L.E her graphic...hope the bloggy police don't come after me..



In the Spotlight Today will be the creator of this and my IRL friend Toni of Special K Family. Toni is a military wife and mother of two boys who has a hilarious outlook on life (as well as a propensity for a huge grudge...ok ok I do too but hey...). If there is but one blog I'm going to have the time to read it's going to be her. She is married to my old roomate (who probably STILL hates me..:D...J/K right?? No, feed my ego here..). Toni and I met at a bar and lived together for about 6-7 months I think (maybe longer who knows??) and I think we both helped each other through some crappy times in our lives. She is as hilarious IRL as in her blog and I recommend her blog to anyone needing a chuckle.

~~ So I also recommend stealing her idea for Spotlight Sunday's...Just post in the comments that you came from me, also if you do a Spotlight Sunday let me know and I'll go read..:D

and here's info on my name...

You entered: Rebecca Michelle Forston
There are 22 letters in your name.
Those 22 letters total to 103
There are 8 vowels and 14 consonants in your name.

What your first name means:Hebrew Female Variant of Rebekah: Captivating; knotted cord.


Your number is: 4

The characteristics of #4 are: A foundation, order, service, struggle against limits, steady growth.

The expression or destiny for #4:
Order, service, and management are the cornerstones of the number 4 Expression. Your destiny is to express wonderful organization skills with your ever practical, down-to-earth approach. You are the kind of person who is always willing to work those long, hard hours to push a project through to completion. A patience with detail allows you to become expert in fields such as building, engineering, and all forms of craftsmanship. Your abilities to write and teach may lean toward the more technical and detailed. In the arts, music will likely be your choice. Artistic talents may also appear in such fields as horiculture and floral arrangement, as well. Many skilled physicians and especially surgeons have the 4 Expression.

The positive attitudes of the 4 Expression yield responsibility; you are one who no doubt, fulfills obligations, and is highly systematic and orderly. You are serious and sincere, honest and faithful. It is your role to help and you are required to do a good job at everything you undertake.

If there is too much 4 energies present in your makeup, you may express some of the negative attitudes of the number 4. The obligations that you face may tend to create frustration and feelings of limitation or restriction. You may sometimes find yourself nursing negative attitudes in this regard and these can keep you in a rather low mood. Avoid becoming too rigid, stubborn, dogmatic, and fixed in your opinions. You may have a tendency to develop and hold very strong likes and dislikes, and some of these may border on the classification of prejudice. The negative side of 4 often produces dominant and bossy individuals who use disciplinarian to an excess. These tendencies must be avoided. Finally, like nearly all with 4 Expression, you must keep your eye on the big picture and not get overly wrapped up in detail and routine.

Your Soul Urge number is: 6

A Soul Urge number of 6 means:
With a number 6 Soul Urge, you would like to be appreciated for your ability to handle responsibility. Your home and family are likely to be a strong focus for you, perhaps the strongest focus of your life. Friendship, love, and affection are high on your list of priorities for a happy life. You have a lot of diplomatic tendencies in your makeup, as you a able to rectify and balance situations with an innate skill. You like working with people rather than by yourself. It is extremely important for you to have harmony in your environment at all times.

The positive side of the 6 Soul Urge produces a huge capacity for responsibility; you are always there and ready to assume more than your share of the load. If you possess positive 6 Soul Urges and express them, you are known for your generosity, understanding and deep sympathetic attitude. Strong 6 energy is very giving of love, affection, and emotional support. You may have the inclination to teach or serve your community in other idealistic ways. You have natural abilities to help people. You are also likely to have artistic and creative leanings.

If you have an over-supply of 6 energy in your makeup, you may express some of the negative traits common to this number. With such a strong sympathetic attitude, it is easy to become too emotional. Sometimes the desires to render help can be over done, and it can become interfering and an attitude that is too protective, rather than helpful. The person with too much 6 energy often finds that people tend to take advantage of this very giving spirit. You may tend to repress your own needs so that you can cater to the demands from others. At times, there may be a tendency in this, for becoming over-loaded with such demands, and as a result become resentful.

Your Inner Dream number is: 7

An Inner Dream number of 7 means:
You dream of having the opportunity to read, study, and shut yourself off from worldly distractions. You can see yourself as a teacher, mystic, or ecclesiastic, spending your life in the pursuit of knowledge and learning.

All Done

Well, I've been vindicated. The complaint against me was found unfounded and it is O.V.E.R. Whew that's a load off of my shoulders. However Toni in light of recent developments I do believe I've overtaken you in the running for Worst Mommy of the Year. Thanks to all of my supporters.

Today I decided to get my blog pimped. I've emailed splat designs to do it. I like her designs. So I'll have a surprise for y'all later. Maybe one day I'll learn to do my own self..(quit laughing now...I mean it!!!!)

Here's a funny for Thursday for y'all...

Me and Lizzie were riding a motorcycle game..(kinda looks like a real motorcycle)

Lizzie: Mommy, you are hurting my penis

Me: Lizzie you don't have a penis..and don't say that word (while looking around to make sure noone heard)

Lizzie: Yes I do it's just not pointy.

Me: Well, ummmm...ummmm.....ok

Update




So, here's the update on the current situation. Yes Steven's commander came over and YES that's B.A.D!! but the claims made against us were UNFOUNDED!!! Apparently someone...I'm thinking someone with an agenda....called and said there was puppy poop on the floor (ummm NO), diapers on the floor (again..NO), the puppy had peed on the couch (Now the kids spill alot of crap on the couch but the puppy has NEVER peed on my couch..she's be puppy stew if she did!!!) and my house smelled..(again NO and my neighbors even said...ummm NO..). The Commander came over looked at our house and said.."it was cluttered and I was doing laundry" of course it was cluttered...I have 3 kids and am busy.

They made us go to family advocacy and talk to a social worker..who was the one saying unfounded..and she wants me to take Stress Management classes...(REALLY??? ME STRESSED...don't know where she would get that one.)

5 Question Meme...

Since I'm Toni's 'Spotlight Sunday'(good idear...) person. I figured I'd go ahead and do her 5 Question Meme and then go back to bed because well sunday is my day for sleeping in and all...

1) When did you know, 100%, that hubby was the person to marry?


Hmmm it had to be after the HUGE.BIG ole fight we had where I had to remind him that we WERE NOT dating and frolicking naked in a hot tub with a bunch of people was perfectly acceptable...no that was when I got pissed off and decided to date him...Then it was when he came to Charleston to visit and him and Kat took to each other like 'two peas in a pod' so to speak..

2.) What big project/achievement are you hoping to accomplish in the next year?

I'm hoping to finish school ...I think I can finish it by the end of the year if I work hard it at...(or I hope to not get caught pushing my neighbor down the stairs...one of those two...)

3.) If you could be any celebrity for a day, who would you be and what would you do?

Honestly I want to be Angelina Jolie. I really respect her work and what she does for the world at large..Plus she gets eye candy--(oh sweet sweet Brad)

4.) If you could have any job/career in the whole wide world, what would it be?

I kinda like my job now but c'mon who doesn't want to be an ice cream tester????


5.) If you could go back to high school, with all the knowledge and life lessons you have now, would you do it?

HECK NO those people in my high school were MEAN..maybe that was me?? no them....no me??? no them.....hmmmmmmm


If you want to participate in this meme let me know and I'll get you your five questions too..

Bring It ON Murphy!!!

You know how you can plan and plan and plan (oh did I mention plan yet?) and no matter what your plans are SOMETHING always goes wrong...(umm Murphy's Law...Yes I K.N.O.W.) Well this spring break I PLAN to outwit Murphy...that's right..little ole me is going to outwit Murphy. I R.E.F.U.S.E. to actually finalize a plan. Here's what it sounds like at my house:

Well, if daddy's passport comes in (it did come it but it was wrong so HE sent it back..wait for it people....because it said he was from Ohio and not Oklahoma...(big sighs and eye rolls from me...) we'll go to London for a few days...

But if his passport doesnt' come in we'll just go to Paris.

And if Paris doesn't work out..well we'll just hop on up to Amsterdam and let mommy go to one of those cafe's ok??? (Don't hate because you can't go...)

That's right Murphy..there'll be no CRAPPING on my plans this year so TAKE THAT!!!

Idiosyncra Idiosinc Stuff People think is weird about me.

Everyone has little 'things' about them. Apparently mine came to light a few times this week.

#1- I don't like the toilet paper to be rolled under on the roll..It rolls over people...AND I will change it when I come to your house so it's right!!!!

#2- There is O.N.L.Y ONE and I do stress ONE way to load the dishwasher...Please do it that way. I was at Bunco the other night and it was held at a lady from our squadron's--I guessed it was bad when I was helping her clean up and I UNLOADED her dishwasher only to reload it the 'right' way.

#3- It's R.U.D.E. to let your alarm go off 5 times in a morning!! RUDE I tell you..Steven is going to have to move bedrooms if he doesn't start getting his ASS out of bed and letting me Sleep!! I hope to goodness he likes to sleep with Connor!

Blah Blah Blah

Yep that's my day I'm in a M.O.O.D.

i stole this from The Peanut Queen Liked it and took it..bad me..




It says I'm an Easy Rider--Always take life how it comes, and living in the moment. They don't get fazed by life they just breeze through.

an Escape Artist They are forever slipping off, getting away from the rat race and recharging those batteries. Independent and thoughtful, they know themselves well.

a New Wave Puritan They are strict, organized and ever so neat - they practice the art of self discipline. They like things done simply but with an eye for detail.

and touchy feely Love for them is about human contact -- The nitty gritty. They are very physical--a high sex drive demands plenty of attention.
