Although we didn't hunt easter eggs, the easter dinner was a huge success. Seems like the entire family finally agreed on the main course: BRISKET!! Add Corn bread, mac and cheese, broccoli rice casserole, potato salad, deviled eggs and baked beans . . . we were STUFFED! The biggest hits with the kids (Chili and Atilla) were the peanut butter cookies that Robert made!!

Day 101 of 365

We don't have kids to hide easter eggs for, and I don't think the dogs would get it! LOL . . . but what would easter be without a couple hard boiled eggs?!

Day 100 of 365

Living with 2 men, and a male dog . . . being the only female . . .it's TOUGH keeping this house clean. I really think men are missing something in their brain, where they don't SEE the mess, the filth??! So, I bought some new dish towels. As I write this, one already has car grease on it from when they had to work on Ian's car yesterday . . . that's what OLD towels are for, not my pretty NEW ones!!! siggghhhhhhh, MEN!

Day 99 of 365

I'm struggling with keeping to the picture a day commitment. On Thursday, I turned my computer on, and then 2 minutes later turned it off. I go thru phases . . . I had the phase, the jewelry making phase, the scrapbooking phase, and I kinda not feeling the picture a day phase anymore. I'm really concentrating on the loosing weight and working out phase right now.

Day 98 of 365

Apparently, I didn't leave my 12 hour visit with Robert to the ER empty handed . . . they sent me home with STREP THROAT! I woke up this morning, and it felt like I had a rubber ball stuck in my throat. I took a look, and my tonsils were HUGE and had white spots all over them! I went to work anyway, since I missed yesterday. My boss talked me into going to the doctor, so I made the last appointment of the day he had. He confirmed my diagnosis, gave me a shot, more antibiotics, diflucan (ladies, don't ya just LOVE what antibiotics do to us?!), and liquid pain meds to soothe my throat. . . . .oh yeah, also got my monthly bead kit in the mail today, but after a swig of the pain meds, I think I'd rather take a nap than make jewelry!

Day 97 of 365

Atilla got his ears docked, so he's pretty loopy still. Poor baby! He's been takin it easy with the rest of us today.

Day 96 of 365

. . . and THIS is the reason I didn't post anything yesterday! Robert called me at 5pm yesterday, and said he was at the ER. He was having chest pains, and his blood pressure was sky high! I left work immediatly, and got to the ER at 6. We didn't make it out of the waiting room until 10pm, and didn't leave the hospital until 4am!! They ran a ton of tests, and he didn't have a heart attack (thank GOD!). They think it might have been a reaction to a supplement he took, added to the stress of finding out his company is going to a mandatory 4 day work week. Great Monday, huh??

Day 95 of 365

. . . and because time and tequilla took ADVANTAGE of me, here's another picture my mom sent me. It's my dad and Janice in the go-cart. I, on the other hand, spent ALL day Sunday in bed with the hangover from HELL!

Day 94 of 365

Apparently, I have a couple of days to catch up on around here. I'll explain why as I catch up. This is a picture my mom sent me of her (on the right) and a great friend that came to visit her (on the left). They've been friends over 40 years. So, why didn't I take any pictures on Saturday? Well, I had the best of intentions. We had a friend of Robert's over to hang out and play cards, and time and tequilla got away from me . . . the rest is history! LOL

Day 93 of 365

Next time we see Atilla, he'll have his ears cropped. Ian is taking him tomorrow to get them done. I took this in memory of his floppy ears, tomorrow he'll look like a Dobie!

Day 92 of 365

I went and saw the doc yesterday. Since I started my "exercise plan", I had gained 5 lbs!! I was BEYOND frustrated, so had him take blood and run some tests. Haven't got the results back yet, I'm hoping he calls tomorrow?
