Promises Promises...

Hey there my friends.. I am sorry I have been away so long. I have been in a slump again I have had ideas for posts but with the girls gone to Grandmas house this week I havent done a damned thing.. Nothing around the house either really. I cleaned out out our bedroom closet yesterday afternoon and got rid of a lot of junk that was laying around.. Some old blinds and paper that got scattered some how.. Just some junk..

I washed some dishes nothing really exciting going on here this time around.. The girls went Saturday and come home this Saturday in time for the 4th of July..  I have to Sunday night off and have to work Monday night.. I think its stupid how they blew our 4th of July to hell.  I wanted to watch the fire works with my family but of course not..  Oh well it happens. We have some for the house anyway.. We will light them off on Sunday instead.  I have some vids of the ones we shot off on Friday night. We bought enough to have some for this last friday and some for Sunday before the 4th. 

I have been meaning to keep up here but just havent. I noticed my last post was like ten days ago.. LOL. I have been slacking on everything and everyone..  I had tonight off. They are switching the pouches around again to the new product, but same bag. the only difference is that this new pouch doesnt have the strap on them.  they just have a hole in the middle where the strap would be.  I know real exciting there too huh??LOL!!!!

I have been going out of my mind with out the girls.. I am so bored and almost had to put a movie in yesterday morning because it was so quiet in the house.. Just for some noise.. I dont sleep as soundly either when there not here.. What will I do when they grow up and want to move out?? I dont know yet.. its going to be hard on me. 

I am making myself a sweater. From a fellow blogger I got some great yarn and I am making my self a scarlet and bluish/green sweater.. That fellow blogger should know who I am talking about.. I just couldnt help myself with the colors. Wanted it scarlet and pink but was to impatient to wait for the pink so I used the bluish color in the box with the scarlet. Its turning out really nice.

I just watched Lovely bones.. It followed the book ok.. Its been about a year or so since I read the book but from what I remembered it followed the book pretty closely.  It didnt ruin the book in my opinion like some movies do to books..

Those of you with animals. Do they go through separation anxiety  like children do? Snowie has been just clinging to me the last few days. Everytime I go some place in the house she has to go with me. 

Tonight I didnt have to work as I mentioned so Jeff took me out to our local Amusement park. NO I DID NOT GET ON THE PIPPIN ZIPPIN..!!!! We rode the tilt a whirl once and the scrambler and then decided we were hungry and came home. i am making sloppy joes tomorrow night..  Again I have posts in my head but just havent gotten them out yet and dont remember what they were now..LOL..

Anyway I wont bore you with all the vids. It would take me all night to load them all..

OK I was going to upload three but it wont let me get my third one up right now.. The third one was really pretty. It was another fountain but called pinkalicious.. The smoke was really pink and pretty..

Where has everyone WENT!!!

Where has everyone went.  It seems like a  year ago I had many friends and lots of comments but now today and this  year I have only a few friends left that comment regularly. I have thought about quitting myself but then I keep thinking who would I share our adventures with?? Has Facebook taken most of those on my friends list away and not care if they have left some of us in  the dark.. It would be so great to see a new post from those that dont blog anymore..

You know it hurts me to see those numbers rise when it says 1 year ago that some of those favorite peeps havent blogged.. or do they read and not leave comments??  Well anyway life is good here. Not going to dwell on those that arent reading and continue to make my posts as good as I can.  I miss my friends but I understand that you all have decided that either blogging is not for you after all this time or you have become one of those facebook junkies.. 

Jeff bought me a flash drive for my photo's and we figured a 4 GB would work. Well guess what we got home and I had way to many photo's.. So I need another one.. this time around I think I will get a slightly bigger one to have more room for more photo's when the time arises.. 

We bought a new printer also but you know what they cheated us.. It only cost us 30 dollars for the dang thing but it was suppose to come with a USB cord and didnt.. I tore the box apart looking for it..  oh well. we will just buy a USB cord for it.. 

The girls are going to grandmas house this coming weekend for a week. its going to be hard being away from them but they  need the break as much as we do. But they have been little shits the last couple of weeks now since we decided that they were going.. they have taken off on me and I have had to take the car out looking for them.  Then last night they went across the street thos one park.  The only thing that pissed me off about last night was if they would have asked maybe I would have said yes. So they are grounded to the house for this week until they go to grandma's house.. 

I am so sick and tired of  having to deal with them misbehaving..  I didnt even spank them like I wanted to. I just yelled and put them on separate corners of the couch to think.  Kids will be kids. I remember taking off on my mom a few times and they will test us to see how far they can push us.

I officially have 20 rows left of my afghan as of last night.. Yayyy mee. I will post pix when its done since I posted half way photo's for you.  I cant wait till its done.  Here are some photo's of Bris cake and Bri..I know this a mixed up post today..

Not doing anythign special today. We are going grocery shopping.. then I need to do laundry when we come home and start getting the girls ready for grandmas  house.. Just there clothes and such that they will need. it seems they have loads of clothes so it doesnt matter if i take a weeks worth out of there clothes or not..LOL..





There here were taken about a week ago tomorrow.. Those clouds were no were near us.. but the did produce some pretty awsome lightening and just some very scary clouds after it started getting dark outside. The next few photo's were taken at different times to show how fast they were growing and the different colors our neighborhood was looking.. It was awsome to see but I wouldnt have wanted to be twenty miles away at that point where that storm hit. We were suppose to get really nasty weather last sunday and it missed us thankfully. 





This is Lilly.. this is my Mother in laws Cat.. She isnt friendly with people but she does come out of hiding once in a while and lets me talk to her but she wont let me near her.  She lets me take photo's of her and then she hides again.. She was a barn cat when my MIL brought her home and you know it.. She was just a baby but still she knows that she doesnt like people much.  When the girls are at her house she sleeps with them but only when they are sleeping. Other wise she hides most of the time.


This is baby blue and pepper. My Mother in Laws birdies.  Arent they cute.. They are like 3 or 4 years old now.. I think..

Here are some sky shots on our way home last weekend from my MILS house.. I think the sky looks funny to me but jeff says it looks blue.. LOL..

Some sky line in the feild. I love how green it looks there..  It looks so beautiful out there..


I ended up with my sketch of  my afghan in this photo from taking phot's through the front windshield.. LOL! you cant see the sketch but you can see the graph paper there. the square look in the photo..

Ok peeps I am off to get caught up on some laundry and to get the girls started packing.  I am hungry also so I am off. Have a wonderful weekend and I will try to post another post this week and let you all know how the groundig is going with the girls..

Look Whose SEVEN and All grown UP

Look whose SEVEN and seems all GROWN UP.. To fast for my likings.. but i knew it was going to happen.. I cried on Sunday.. I am not ashamed to admit I stood in the middle of Wally world and blubbered like a baby..  Bri has been asking to have her ears peirced for a while now and I finally abliged to it.. she has been really good about giving me her ear cleaner stuff and helping twist them where they dont get stuck in her ears..  I was going to get her, her June b-day but they were out so we got her July. After  the fact I should have gotten May's since she is actually closer to May than July.. LOL.. While we were waiting for the lady that does the ears we were looking at earring and you should have seen her..  I was in my glory looking at earrings with my baby girl.. She didnt cry but I sure did.. LOL..  They did them both at the same time so she wouldnt freak out and not let them get the other ear.. And then from my mom and dad she got two outfits she can interchange.. she can use the shorts with the other shirt and the shirt with the other pair of shorts. So sort of like four outfits when you think about .
I dont know who she is Saluting but she is way to grown up I think sometimes.. 


this one is suppose to show her new ears off but not sure if you can see her earrings well enough in it..hope so. she is so precious..  my sweet brave baby girl..

mommy forgot to take tag off her new shirt before taking the photo..LOL.. but she can interchange these two outfits. That is what I like..

You should have seen her when Kora came home fromt he Hike with daddy.. She looked Kora straight in the face and told kora she would never be able to do it because Kora is a wuss.. LOL. What comes out of kids mouths. I wanted to do this when the girls were babies but I wasnt spending 50 dollars to do it. but glad I waited.. Now at least if they want them done they can have them done. If not oh well..  It was Bris choice.

Anyway I do have photo's of bris cake but not uploaded on the puter  yet. I thought I did that already but didnt.. So that will have to be another post..I didnt get a premade cake this year. We couldnt afford it.. but I did make it a little more special this year. I put some of those cake candies on it for her..

it is hot here today and yesterday. Its almost a hundred degrees and we are suppose to have bad storms tonight. Yuckie.. jeff is taking me to work to bring the car  home to put in the garage where it doesnt get damaged by hail or what not if something happens..OK peeps I need to go make lunches and go shower wehre I can go to work tonight.. They are starting to get backed up with some of the work but not alot right now. So I will see what happens.. Life moves on even with those of us  not working real hard.. Talk to you all soon.. Miss you all..

Okie dokes. Bri turned seven on Thursday but Jeff and I celebrated 15 years as well together and our official 5 year wedding anniversary.. how does that make me feel... OLD!!! but good we have made it this far with many more good years ahead of us.. 

He is taking me out today and Kora is going to babysit Bri while we are out for a few hours..  We are going to a movie and dinner.  Or dinner than a  movie not sure yet.. I have wrote three movies down that sound good to me but they have to pass with him also.. LOL. 

 No one thought we would make it but  we have achieved so much over the last 15  years.. We  have had our girls, marriage and a house..  Jeff has secured himself with a decent job and I have become a temp employee for the time being.. Life could be better with other things in our lives being better but we all know how that one works.

Anyway I will do a run down on our date after we get home maybe tomorrow or Monday when he's not home.  We will have fun and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

I still cant get any of my vids to load.  those will just have to wait until blogger gets the bug fixed if they know there is one.. but anyway happy Saturday..
