Oh hear those sleigh bells ring-a-ling...

Ahh here it is Christmas time at La Casa Del Moore...and the kids are hellions sweet lil angels. It's Day one of Winter Break or as I like to call it.."the week of hell" may think these hellions angels are all sugar and spice blah blah blah..but I know the truth....

Actually today wasn't that bad...We got up around 7 a.m. (ok noonish) and proceded to clean sit on our asses and do nothing all day until Connor took it upon himself to clean the stove...(have to love my little clean freak) then they DEMANDED I cook dinner..hahahah so I threw some chicken nuggets in the oven and said..done..minions...done...

Now if I have time (can remember) tommorrow I'm going to post my Christmas letter to all of you that I didn't send out Christmas cards to this year and take a pic of me and the know if they haven't duct taped me to anything and set the house on fire..

So, I've decided that it's Thankful week at Casa del I'vegonecrazy...

First up is Steven...I am thankful for Steven because he is who he is. He saved me..seriously..I was leading a messed up life when he decided that I was no longer 'best friend' material...more like 'wife' material. He moved me and Kat from Charleston to Oklahoma. He got me out of the life I was leading and into a better one..hence becoming the beautiful person I am who has a DEGREE hahaha...

Steven is currently serving in who the hell knows where, but he's a matter of fact he's meeting celebs..

this is him with Alex Quaid..she is a CNN reporter...hmm my hard working hubby.

Tuesday, November 11, 2008

Oh mio Oh my-o...

Oh lordy, lordy I'm losing my ever-lovin mind.

Today I came in from taking Kat to the bus-stop and 'thought' I smelled cologne, a man's what do I do?? I dialed 9-1 on my phone and held it (you know so i could dial the other one if I needed to) while I checked my house out to see if there was someone here...

Walk upstairs..don't smell it..

Walk downstairs..still smell it.

Walk upstairs again..don't smell it..

Downstairs still smell it..can't figure out where it's coming from...the dog meanwhile is looking at me like I've lost my everloving mind..(I have)..

About 3 minutes later it occurs to's the plug in...

Scared the hell out of myself for nothing..SHIT.

Tuesday, November 04, 2008

Mama Mia...

Kat's chorus had their first concert tonight..They did a melody of songs from Mama was really good and nice...long though...

(This was for Steven) :D...

My Weekend in Pictures...

Lizzie learned to ride her bike..only two wheels..woohoo..took her all of 1 min..seriously she just hopped on and went..

Went to a wedding...(notice Connor there 'posing')

Me and the kids at home after the wedding..please notice who 'caught' the bouquet..she actually fought and older woman for it hoo boy...

and the pumpkin carving..

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

Whew what a week...

This picture has nothing to do with today's post, The 13 year old threatened to disown me if I posted this so...go ahead sweetie..and don't fret I will save this one for your wedding day!!!!

Anywho's on Monday my dogs ran off (both of them. First of all I have a full blooded husky who's pure white and a heavy footed heifer...I mean Jack Russell Terrier. I couldn't find them anywhere...well I thought OK if noone picks them up and decides to keep them then they'll come home..No come home on Monday, the kids were devasted. I kept getting up and checking the door ALL night.

Tuesday they still didn't come home and I started to look for bodies on the side of the road. Tuesday night we got a phone call that a couple about a mile or so away had them. Picked them up and she even said that we were lucky she picked them up because someone else may have tried to keep them because they were so sweet and beautiful...Kids are Happy, I am Happy, Hubby is Happy. Worst week ever turned to Best Week Ever.

Now we have to bathe them ....good luck us..

Saturday, October 18, 2008


So, I've got a huge spot of RED food dye on my carpet (carpet in the house i'm renting...) anyone know how to get it out..or am I just SOL and have to buy a new room of carpet...

Here's Connor:

Here's Lizzie:

My new house...

Here's my new house for those who's so pretty and Big. I haven't lived in such a nice house since FOREVER... Only problem is the county it's in. We will HAVE to move next year before Katherine starts High School (OMG am I that old???)

And the kids in the 'pool'. This is their Favorite part of the house. Should be mine too with a good glass of wine, but I haven't gotten to get in it yet as I've been LAZY. Heck, according to some I "should" be totally unpacked but gah...why unpack until I need the item..or I might have to get off of my Lazy Bottom.

Maybe tommorrow I'll post pics of the dining room (haha it's the only 'clean' room here.)

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Weekend Update

Ahh well, I've moved into the new house (pics to come when I know Aprilish). I've discovered I have a lot of stuff...A lot...

Kids are doing good:

Kat is staying with ma and pa so she can go to a different counties school..(the school for this county is AWFUL...I'm afraid to send her to it..)

Lizzie is Lizzie..she is the little momma.

and Connor well let me tell you about Connor:

today out of his mouth comes: "My Penis is Big...My daddy's penis is really big"...needless to say we died laughing. Of course my hubs thinks this was the greatest..made him feel really good..wonder why???

I'll try to take an outside pic of the house at least tommorrow...ish

The kids and Cats New TOY

So, I found myself in a precarious position the other night (hey Steven is deployed for a year don't judge!!) and found myself in one of those stores where I saw the cutest durn vibrator you EVER saw in your life. It was called a mini mini rabbit..Well, I just had to have it...not for me mind you, because I really didn't think it would do the job, but I thought it would be the greatest toy for the cats...and buddy it is.

You should see the when you put him on the hardwood floor and he hops across the floor and the cat (okay maybe just Buster as Boy Boy more looks at you like a fool and you bothered his nap).

Of course when you have a cat toy, it automatically becomes a kids toy, They seem to love it....they love to put it on the floor and turn it on and make it hop everywhere, they put it in the car and put it behind my back in the seat and laugh...and put it in the middle section near my elbow and think that's funny too.

Hey, it was a cheap fun toy...what can we say and ohhh so cute....

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

Well Hello...

Back by popular demand (thanks Stacy I missed you too..and honey I always miss you and those dreams I've been having wooo..let me tell you...OH MY)..anyway. I made it back to the states and feel 110% better lately. I've come to the conclusion I am a beach girl I NEED TO BE NEAR THE BEACH (or at least within 30 miles.). Other than having to deal with my CRAZY family..(and they are CRAZY) things are good.

OK so here's what's happened since I've gotten home..

1) Kat (13 year old) got her first period...and that really helped her attitude 300%..she is totally a different child. Before this she was a walking bag of hormones...

2) I rented a beautiful house..I move in Sept. 15.. I'll post pics when I move in and get my stuff in.

3) Kids started school..YAY!!! Quiet is not overrated.

4) I made Amanda's boyfriend cry...(might tell you about that tommorrow.) don't want to ruin your opinion that I'm all sweet and innocent and all...ya know..

Tuesday, June 10, 2008


I am miserable...utterly miserable with a 'summer cold' ...who knew..they knock you down worse than a winter cold. I think because it's so nice outside..(and yes it's nice here in Germany right now...I know..I'm surprised too..let's hope nice holds out until Friday when we go to Phantasialand where I spend way too much too get in..think along the lines of Disney World...and then Steven bitches about it (Don't lie Steven you know you will...)

I really really (have I mentioned really yet) don't want to go, but the oldest is going the youngest want to go and I kind of thought it would be funner to go with my troop however my troop isn't going now, it's only a couple of us..and my cheap gene has kicked in. I know I have a lot to pay for since I leave here July 1...

I think I need a drink and it's only 8 that too early for wine?? My friend Jennifer would say I say no..except I shipped all the good wine..shit..

Diamonds are a girls best friend ???

Call me a brat, call me spoiled rotten, whatever..but hubby and I are sitting here arguing right now because...(sit down) he wants to buy me diamonds and I DON'T want them. I'm so picky about my diamonds and to be honest I wouldn't wear them anywhere. He thinks I'm being selfish and I should think about my children and leave them something to hand down to them. WHAT??? Buy something so it can sit around until I die and then give it to my kids???

I'd rather spend the money on something I actually want..a new couch, a new dining room table???

A day at the spa with no kids by myself--with no kids -- quiet --have I mentioned no kids yet??

So am I being absolutely unreasonable because I just don't want diamonds...oh and I think I hurt his feelings because I told him that the pair of pearl earrings he bought for me I didn't like...because I just don't wear earrings. He expects me to pay attention to him and what his likes and dislikes are but he doesn't even notice I hardly wear jewelry and when I do I like to wear unusual kinds not sparkly glittery stuff.

From: One tired exhausted mom

I think I may have bitten of more than I can proverbially chew this semester. I am so damn tired and my classes are so intensive!!!! I am doing a paper or 2 a week. Add that to the fact that I have to post to some 2 conference in each class (there are 3), I am overrun. Right now I'm trying to get the kids to help out by just being quite.

(Y'all can quit laughing now!!!)

Also, they've put me back on my topamax prescription as I'm allergic to my house. Here's the dealio there. On topamax I lose weight, so I have to take a supplement (ensure, boost, whatever??) yay me...

I need a nap..anyone want to come give me one???

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

I swear.....

A lot apparently. No, not really my friend Jen swears alot more than me so I figure I'm good.

The offending word: CRAP!!! So, damn it lets remember I'm a lady??? oh wait that wasn't a more try..

I'm a lady
I don't swear..

Now after you quit choking...back to your regularly scheduled programming.

One of "those" people??

I was on another message board and we were 'discussing' the fact that sometimes we had 'those' neighbors. You know the one's who you can't stand.

~~ The one who calls all the time
~~ who expects you to watch their kids at a moments notice.
~~ who always offers to do things for you..that you don't necessarily want them to.
~~ the one's who are just too nice.

I started wondering...Am I one of 'those' people? Do I not respect personal space?
Do I tell too much personal stuff about myself?

Ok I know I'm probably the last one. I do not have a filter and sometimes I will tell too much, but hey. That' me. As for the rest, I don't think so, but who knows.

So, this led to a discussion about 'friends' we wish we hadn't made and I've got a couple of those too...but I'm much too nice to 'break-up' with them. I always worry about hurting other's feelings and well just don't want the drama that goes with it...

**note to you 'lurkers' who know me...IT's NOT YOU>>...I LIKE YOU!!!

So, what about you? do you have those friends? Are you one of those people? Am I? Is that why no-one reads my blog??

I think I'll go pop open a bottle (or two) of wine and think about this...

Tuesday, February 19, 2008

So out of it..

I'm in a human sexuality class this semester and one of our first assignments was to talk about how the media influences sexuality.

I'm old and apparently don't listen to music or watch TV as people were bring up all kinds of shows and songs that I didn't even know about or hadn't seen. Shoot.

I thought I was a 'hip' know I listen to that 'superman' song..well at least I did until I found out what it was about...

Hip?? or need a replace hip is what I now think...


Going to change my depends now...

Happy Birthday Baby Girl

Kat turns 13 Today!!!! 13 years old...Wow...I can't believe it..I'm the mother of a teenager.

I still remember the day she was born. It was superbowl sunday 1995..I don't remember who was playing except the 49'ers. She came into this world a screaming and proceeded to pee and poo on the doctor. He said.."Yep this one has a temper" and put her down for a bit.

She's a beautiful soul. Loves to read and play games and is one of the most giving children I know. She will buy her brother and sister something from her money any time they want. She has a great disposition and is a sweet sweet person.

Even though we have some days, she promptly makes up for it with her 'I'm sorry' hug.

Happy Birthday Baby Girl.

A Few Thoughts

Well, I'm back from being sick this weekend...

I got Strep-Throat and had 'Mr. Thorough Doctor' he looked at my throat (I had already looked at it) and said he wouldn't put me on anti-biotics unless I tested he had his person come do a culture..even she looked at my throat and asked if he'd seen it...

So, anyway had to wait 24 hours for it to come back positive...and they put me on 2000 mg of penicillin a day -- does that seem a bit much to anyone???

Feeling better and have Finals this week...Tonights final is for Computer Ethics...

***I should be studying, but seriously what fun would that be???****

I haven't given this class the attention it deserves, but it's hard to when there is really no interaction and the teaching style is not one you like...ughhhh

Anywho..I guess I'll go work on my cheat sheet right now..

Riley Carol Holifield

Riley Carol Holified, my only remaining grandfather, died yesterday in Charleston South Carolina of cancer.

I am going to post a couple of good memories I have of him:

~~ I remember how one summer we were in South Carolina and I was being a bad little mouth child...(I know hard to think of with me...) and he took me in the room, spanked the bed and told me to scream...

~~ And how that man could COOK!!!!

That's all for today.

Friday's Feast One Hundred and Seventy Five.

What is your middle name? Would you change any of your names if you could? If so, what would you like to be called?

My middle name is Michelle and I would like to be called: Queen of the Universe.

If you were a fashion designer, which fabrics, colors, and styles would you probably use the most?

Honestly, probably black and white because it goes with everything. but I do love for fabrics...ummm the kind that looks pretty??

What is your least favorite chore, and why?

umm all of them...I would rather do anything but...ok probably the kitchen.

Main Course
What is something that really frightens you, and can you trace it back to an event in your life?

I do have to sleep with all the closets closed. Not really frightened just have to sleep with them closed and that comes from living in a haunted house with a ghostie who loved to open my closets..(or for you who don't believe..possibly an old house with a bad closet??)

Where are you sitting right now? Name 3 things you can see at this moment.

On my couch...I can see the TV, Christmas decorations that still have to be taken to the basement, and the boy about to get into trouble.

Wow my 200th post..who would guess??? I feel this post should be something special...

For your 100th post it's customary to do the '100 Things about me' post but I just don't feel like it (and seriously I don't think there's 200 or even 100 interesting facts about me)

So, in keeping with my 100th post tradition..I'll again open this up to whatever questions you want to ask me...(go ahead all two of you) and I'll post the question and answer on the blog.

WHEN exactly do they go back to school?????

It's been a L.O.N.G. week here at Casa ala Moore. The kids are still home on Christmas vacation (seriously Christmas is over--can't they go back to school yet??) So, of course that means fight, whine, fight, whine, fight, Mommy needs some WINE!!!. Add that to the fact the kids all got sick New Years Eve.

Kat is still in bed SICK!!!! However I must admit that the absence of teenage hormones these past few days has been nice.

Lizzie just got over being sick...which means back to the incessent whining.


Connor -- well lately he's had a plethora of that normal for a 3 1/2 year old??

Oh did I mention Steven is on leave this week and seems to be home to annoy me????

Such is the life I tell you.
