Happy Memorial Day! This is a picture of my dad's dad and my mom's dad when they were serving our country! Felix left the service after World War II for a civilian life, and Don re-enlisted in the Air Force and didn't retire until 1971.

Like we needed the calories!! . . . but they were OH so cute, and perfect for Memorial Day weekend . . . I just HAD to make them. Now, if I could just freeze half of them and not eat them ALL this weekend!! Nahhhhhhhh! haha

Here's the latest video game. Was waiting a couple of weeks to buy used at a MUCH cheaper price, and got it Friday. Robert and I have to both play though . . . he has to get me thru the shooting scenes, and I have to get him thru the investigation scenes.

It's POOL TIME! Hey, man . . . don't judge . . . I'm on a budget! :) It was only $25 and it's PERFECT! Big enough for my floatie and for Robert to sit in the corner (if he even wants in? he didn't get in last year's pool much). We still have the stairs for last years pool, haven't knocked them down . . . just in case we wanna high dive! :)

This Casey Anthony trial is SO interesting to me. Today was the opening arguments, and the defense dropped a bombshell by saying that Casey was molested as a child, and that Caylee drowned in the family pool . . . Can't WAIT to see this unfold!

Tornado season seems SO bad this year! I don't remember this many, with this many deaths, and the complete devastation that this year's tornado's are causing! This is a picture from the Joplin, MO tornado on Sunday.

Robert took me to get my library card today. Haven't been in YEARS! They have lots of books online, but I needed a library card to be able to access them. Even borrowed a couple of audio books to check out. Need some suggestions on what to get next . . . .

Chili cracks me up . . . he was camping out in this chair like he was a couch potato! I can't IMAGINE where he gets it from??

Are kids the only voters on American Idol anymore? Haley should have TOTALLY won this year. Hopefully she'll be as successful as Chris Daughtry . . . I think they are both SO great! I just went and bought 4 of her songs on Itunes!

Today was the last day of my first session of Weight Watchers at work. It started January 22nd, and I started online at home on January 1st. I weigh in at home on Saturday mornings, and at work on Wednesday's at lunch. I'm hoping that we have enough people to start another session at work, because I need the motivation. I still have a ways to go . . . . I've lost 9.4 lbs @ work and 14.4 lbs @ home.

I'm not much of a basketball fan . . . but even I am watching this series. I hope Mark Cuban's team can finally go all the way. Mom used to work for Mark Cuban, so I can almost pretend like I know him! hehe

My beans are going gang busters! These started from SEEDS! Everything else is kinda . . . ehhhh??

OK, Yes . . . I am a reality show addict . . . and Boston Rob FINALLY winning Survivor after playing it 4 times is like the "pinnacle" of reality TV. You think Robert will move to Utah, and let me have another husband? You think it would be confusing to be married to Robert and Rob??

I'm so sick of Lifetime TV! I've been in bed since Thursday after work, first with what I thought were just allergies, and then with a 103 degree fever. The bird feeder outside is like a little birdie buffet providing my only other entertainment.

May 13, 2011

75,000 miles on my car already. I haven't even had it 5 years yet. I need new tires soon, but other than that every thing else seems good so far (knocking on wood!)

This was in the back parking lot at work today. I don't think it's a "full car" though . . . it looks like a mock up for pictures or something, but we haven't gotten any emails on why it's there?

May 11, 2011

This was the radar right before my commute home! Yuck! It actually looks a lot worse than it was. It was really dark though.

My parents got the shop all done!! Yesterday they painted the walls…..Dad did the cutting in and Mom did the rolling. Then they started moving things back on all the shelves. Today they moved the motor home out and vacuumed and cleaned all the saw dust everywhere. It looks great! I know y'all are thrilled to have it finished!

Happy Mother's Day Mom! I love you bunches!! I'm guessing this picture is from Christmas 1973 . . . any idea? You probably remember this better than I do! :)

It was MY idea to go to the outdoor flea market while we waited on my car at the shop . . . and it was ME that found this fishing boat for $150. He's been wanting one JUST like this since I met him, so I'm glad he finally got it. Now we just need a motor, a battery, an oar, some more fishing gear, prolly a new pole, and . . . . ;-)

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I had a margarita on the rocks and diet nachos (fat free cheese, baked chips, grilled chicken, black beans, corn and salsa) . . . yum yummmmm!!

Got our new mattress topper today. It's 3 inches of memory foam, on top of a 12 inch mattress . . . and now 31 inches off the ground! We really have to "climb" into bed now . . . hope my sheets fit?!

Robert and Chili kept me entertained on the deck while I ate dinner tonight. They were calling the crow back that had SWOOPED next to the owl decoy by the shed. I might have to get a scarecrow with all of that corn spoutin' up!

Osama Bin Laden is DEAD! The President had a late night announcement last night. This picture was released today of all of the members of the national security team in the Situation Room of the White House yesterday afternoon, watching the live feed of the mission to take Osama dead or alive in Pakistan.

I can't believe that after all the controversy about Obama's birth certificate, when the White House finally produced a copy it is OVERLY fraudulent! Is it really possible that the White House would be so foolish as to release a forgery, produced using Adobe Photoshop?? These two images show all the changes made to the "original" document.
