Summer is almost here!!!!

So it has been a week since my last blog. It has been a crazy week and school is not out yet! What am I going to do when it is summer? Landon ended up sick on Wednesday and almost missed his last day of school. I did take him on Thursday but a little late. The kids had a great time at the party! I will miss his teachers so much. He really did have 2 great ones this year! He took to Angela right away and I like to think she took to him too! He did warm up to Donna too! So Alyssa's last day of school is next Thursday. We have award day on Tuesday and Wednesday is end of the year party and field day. Busy! Busy! So to the real question. What am I going to do all summer with 2 kids at home?????? I am thinking that if I keep them busy that will be best. It is so hard with such a big age difference. What Landon likes Alyssa does not and what Alyssa likes Landon could care less. Although I am panicking about it now I am looking forward to sleeping in a little and getting to spend lots of time with the kids. I think they are growing up too fast! Well I better wrap this up and get some laundry done! So if you see me pulling out my hair you will know that it is officially summer then! XOXO

Not Me Monday!

So I am going to tryout the Not Me Monday! I saw this on another blog and loved it. So here I go.

I did not lay in bed all day yesterday instead of doing laundry and grocery shopping! I did not see my 2 year old peeing in the parking lot of Wal-Mart! I did not let the same 2 year old have popcorn for breakfast. I did not eat all weekend and gain back most of the weight that took me 2 weeks to lose! I did not drink too much on Saturday night and crawl around on the floor like a puma or do things on the golf cart that only Joe and I know about! I am sure there is more that I did not do but now I have to go and not balance my checkbook! Happy Monday!

Good Old Joe

Like I have said before I have the best husband in the world! I am now sure that everyone knows this because they constantly call him for favors! If someone needs money, parts, tools, a ride because they broke down or a paint job for free they come a calling. It is not that I mind helping people out because I don't. I like to think I do it often myself but enough is enough! If you borrow it pay it back or return it! If he helps you fix your car remember him when he needs help! He is always doing things for others but others never help him. His problem is he can't say NO! I have been wondering how I could teach him this. Do you think I could teach him like a dog? I could put a shock collar on him and every time the phone rings I could shock him. Sounds like fun to me but I don't think it would work. I guess in short I just want people to treat him with the respect that he treats them with. Ok so enough complaining. I will think happy thoughts for tomorrows blog.

Happy Birthday Kelly!

Today is for Kelly! It is my best friends birthday. I want her to know how greatful I am for our friendship not only today but every day. I can remember so many fun times together so in honor of your birthday here are some on my favorite memories of us!

Going to the beach with my mom and her getting sunburned. We went out that night by ourselves and met up with Chris and Todd. You went to get in the back seat and I put the seat back too soon and your bushwacker drink went every where! We had to sneak back into the hotel for you to change.

You telling Ashley Wilson "If you don't like what we are about to do then you better get out of my car" and she sat on the curb!!

Being chased down 31 by a car load of girls who got out at a red light and attacked your car. When the light turned green and they were headed back to their car you yelled to them "Come on with your bad self, b**ches!!!

Sips n' Strokes! Need I say more?

The night you tripped over the hat rack and I got in trouble!

I could go on and on for days! I just want you to know how special our friendship is to me and how much I love you! (You know like a sister not in a Sharon kind of way!) XOXO

My very giving husband

Let me start by saying that I have the best husband in the world. He is not only the best husband but a wonderful father. He will take the shirt off his back for you. So back in October he hired a kid to be his clean up boy at the shop. I will call him Toby. (That is the nickname that every clean up boy has had.) He has had a very hard life and needed a chance. Joe has gone out on a limb for people before and has been burned every time so I was a little apprehensive at first. I was so wrong. Toby comes to work every day and does a great job. So great that Joe gave him a raise of $2 an hour and made him a bodyman. He also went and bought him tools and will let him pay it back weekly. Well when Toby got home yesterday he just wanted to tell his mom the good news and all she did was yell at him. He walked down to our house and Joe took him to the shop and is letting him stay in our camper for a few nights. Now Joe has decided to help him find a place to live and help him get a car. Joe is such a selfless person. I not only love him with all my heart but I am very proud of him. XOXO
