- marching bands
- patriotic music (Lee Greenwood anyone?)
- family & friends
- red, white & blue
- water / beach
When I was little, I remember spending many birthdays at the beach -- it was our vacation destination. Because the fourth was a day after my birthday, I always thought the fireworks and celebration were for me. Yes....that's why I STILL make a big deal about my birthday. Maybe one day, when my "number" is much higher, I will not expect everyone to wish me a happy day, but until that day comes.....:-)

We've started staying at Dennis' this week. I don't feel like the house is 'mine' so I'm a little on edge - making sure the kids don't drop a crumb, but this morning I get up and one of the dogs (MINE) shit in the rug in the living room. I cleaned it up the best I could at the moment but I was gagging the whole time. Tonight I'll have to see what I can do.
We don't have the boys rooms set up yet, so mason and rylan wanted to sleep in the floor beside us. Sometime in the night rylan snuck into the bed. A habit that must be broken....and soon. He's getting so big and doesn't stay still.
Getting back to work. I am NOT going to dwell on the dr. pepper or sweets that I cannot have. nope -- not doing it.

Saturday I spent the afternoon working on my house -- clean up, sorting for garage sale. I felt a sense of accomplishment...I had 4 bags of trash. Big bags. After the garage sale this weekend, I hope I really have a dent in getting moved out and getting the house ready to rent. My entire house must be cleared out. It's a big task, but I'm very excited about our future!
Yesterday we had a late lunch, visited w/Den's uncle, came home, checked out his jeep in storage, went to my sister's, grocery store, home, swimming. By then, the day was near over. Amazing how time flies when you're with someone you love.....:-) went to bed early but couldn't fall asleep.

- garage sale
- comes with me
The decision is so tough, but I've kept these categories in mind while sorting through our stuff. If you've read lately, I'm planning a garage sale. Next weekend, I think. I have LOTS of decor items, clothes, some furniture, kitchen stuff. I'm taking work type clothes to a consignment store tomorrow. Clothing generally doesn't make much at garage sales, & some stuff is still good condition, I just outgrew it.
SO....I'm hoping to be out of my house in July. get the word out if you know anyone looking for a house to rent. 3/2/1600+ SF

So it's Tuesday now. Last night we went to Den's. The kids helped him lay grass in his yard (it looks SO good). We swam. Ate dinner. Went to bed. OH...and I watched TV. SCORE!!!! I can't explain how difficult it is to have no TV. i did at least have a couple of fuzzy channels but with the HD switch over last Friday, I lost even that. movies or video games. being broke really sucks. really!
Looking forward to the weekend. Friday night we're having drinks at the Pub then going to Keeno, which is always a blast.

COMPLETELY off topic....I think my inner 12-yr old girl is dying to get out. Last year (around Halloween) I got into tutu's. Love them. Everything is better wearing a tutu. Housework in a tutu, is suddenly not too bad. Tutu + stilletos = Oh la la. This year, my obsession is the flowers in the hair. They look so freaking cute on little girls. I downsized the flowers and made my own hair clips because I couldn't find them anywhere (anywhere = waxahachie).
LOL. Ry is watching Kung Fu Panda and has apparently seen it enough times to have the lines memorized....too funny!
HOpefully getting some cable hooked up tomorrow....no more fuzzy 4 & 8, although I have to go thru the trouble of packing up my dish receivers and shipping them back...but desperate times.
Going to my friend, Jill's wedding tomorrow night. Super excited. I haven't been to a wedding since....Jeff and Meegan, several years ago. It'll be fun. I think we're staying the night because it's in Weatherford & we don't want to drive back to Hatchie afterwards. I hope the storms stay away. Must check weather.

Friday night Den and I went to the movies to see The Hangover. I seriously think this ranks on my top 5 movies. It was greatness...absolutely hilarious. We left and went to Courtside for a drink but left without finishing because the place smelled like vomit.
Saturday I had a hair appointment with my super awesome hairdresser - Cara! I wanted to go dark, I love my hair dark. I think it makes my eyes look more blue. So we put some LAVA on it...yes, that was the name of the color. I look like a straight up rocker chic. Cara....I may have to do this again just before DEF LEPPARD in August!!!! After my hair appointment, Den and I had a couples massage (a Valentine's gift) at One Fine Day. He was asleep in the first 5 minutes but I enjoyed mine...of course it's always over a little too soon. Sat. night Den went to TMS for a race, so I hung out at the pool, reading and watching TV.
I woke up this morning at 11! Who the hell sleeps til 11? ME!!! Got up, Den cooked lunch and I came home to feed the dogs, steam cleaned the hallway and Dalton's room, went back to Den's, fell asleep on the couch, came back home. Dreading the work week.
Did you notice I mentioned vomit in this blog twice? LOL!

Last night we get home and I told the boys to clean up the front yard. It's time to mow (again) and Dalton and his friends had some boards in the front yard that they used as ramps for their skateboards. They last moved these boards about a month ago - i remember this because I REFUSED to move them and I just mowed around (sorry Den). they were excited about moving the boards. Why? When grandpa helped move them over, they picked them up and snakes scattered. baby snakes, but snakes nonetheless. In my previous life, as a princess, I wouldn't dare get near this plot, but as a mom of three boys, I stand there with my stick, waiting to "catch" the slithery little creatures. Sure enough -- 2 baby snakes. And what do boys want to do with snakes? What else -- kill them. I supervise while Mason runs to get a shovel....wait, no - a rake. A rake? that's what he came back with. Gotta love them. They proceed to cut the heads off, then carry the lifeless slinky around the front yard and down to the neighbor (girls) to chase them with a snake body!
This morning I took Rylan to grandma's and there is a possum in the flower bed. Looked like a giant rat. GROSS! I try to scare it with the sound of my car -- success. I shoo the giant rat to the carport, then down the driveway. I follow him in my car to get it far away from the front door that I'm just about to go into. Rylan is in the back seat yellling -- RUN OVER HIM MOM!!!!! :-)
I wonder what creature awaits me tonight!
