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.
