Happy Thanksgiving Everyone...

Yes it's true, I woke up this am with some weird horrible pain on my thigh.  Someone once told me the older you get the more you see people (as well as yourself) begin to fall apart.  Lovely.  So at 40, my leg is falling off or I at least want it to right now.  Best part is, while I sit on the couch in pain, my husband gets to run around by himself getting all three kids ready for our hour drive to thanksgiving dinner at a pals house. 
He is soo happy. 
I keep reminding him, "Aren't you thankful for me?" 
He is beyond capable of laughing and gives me this grimm'ache' face...
"What?" I say, "At least I'm able to bark orders from the couch."

Thankful?   I'm thankful for my family, my dear friends in a town where we have 0 family, and for those amazing wonderful friends that live everywhere else but here.  I miss you all and hope you have much love in your hearts today.  If you give it, it comes back.  If you give it and they just take it, sock them.

Beware:...and don't tell you I didn't warn you.  Stay away from anything with the company Liberty Names of America.  They'll offer to register your website and when you say no, they'll take it anyway.  Nice huh?  Call to complain, they don't answer.  Run, hide, burn anything with their name on it.  I don't know how these people sleep at night, how they live with themselves or even look in the mirror.  I searched the internet and I'm not alone.  They tried to steal my website 5 years ago, took money from me and now that I figured out their scam, they won't talk to me.  Haha.  Great company.  At least I feel better knowing people who hurt people don't sleep well at night....I'm hoping anyway.  Cause not sleeping well at night is torture.  Ask any mom with a newborn baby.

Cell Phone Stupid

My nine year old can play games, change tones and even text a joke to a pizza place in China.  He tells me, "Mom, read your manual!"  Read my manual?  Who has the time?  If my manual could make dinner for five, I'd read my manual.  If my manual could vacuum my home up and down, I'd read my manual.  If my phone could blow my husband....I'd buy five more phones.

In one month I ruined 3 new phones:  The first I dropped as I was shutting my car door.  I only noticed cause I couldn't find my phone, I got out of the car thinking I dropped it on the ground, but I found it  crushed in between the door and the car.  I had owed my new phone 5 hours.  The second I dropped into my cup holder forgetting the cupholder was already holding a full glass of 7up!  The third, I was chatting to the bank while doing dishes.  I dropped it into a blender filled with water.

T-mobile loves me!
I bought 2 phones that month. Then the guy at the phone store said, “If it every gets wet, open it all up, blow it air dry in all the crevices and let it dry for 2 days. THEN it will be fine.

After I dropped it into the sink I did that and my 3rd phone of the month worked!!!!

"Don't Say Fuck...."

Roc was singing that “Jesus loves me” song over and over.
Suddenly he stopped and said slowly like he was teaching us what he learned and what he knows,
“We don’t hit people….in the face… in the whole wide world…..”
I sid, “Yes that’s right.”
Roc says, “No one is stupid……and we don’t say, “fuck.” “
"He Swallowed It..."

Meg’s third tooth fell out while we were vacationing in Kauai and we brought it home. She wouldn’t give it to the tooth fairy till she brought it to school for show and tell. So when we got back, we packed it up and waited till Thurs for her day to present it to her KG class. That night she brought it home and it was in a mini baggie with her story of how it fell out and it was sitting on the coffee table as myself, Ty, Meg and Roc were seated around it.

Suddenly Meg says, “Where’s my tooth?”

Then to Roc, “Roc, you were holding it, where did you put it?”

Roc’s put his hands out, palms up and dropped his mouth as if to say, “I have no idea.”

Soon after I was directly asking where he put it, he says, “I swallowed it.”

Ty starts laughing and I slowly kept asking questions, “Where is it now?”

Roc says, “It’s in my tummy.”

Thankfully probably because Ty was trying to control his laughter, Meg saw him and she started to giggle.

Later when Meg went to bed and was going to bed w/o her tooth for the tooth fairy, Roc said, “Meggy, I’ll poop it out for you, okay?”
