So my brother,Josh, who I tend to like very much, usually, when he's not throwing things at me, like green beans and such, got engaged on Saturday. Stacy , his fiance (that's fun to write) we love and treat her as a member of this messed up family. (yes. she occasionally gets food thrown at her too--it's a rite of passage) The proposal was perfect and very Josh like. I was proud of him.

So congrats Josh & Stace, looking forward to the big day!
and lots of fun between now & the big day!

at Red Rock in Colorado. nice little Photo-op.
Hanging out in Colorado, aren't they a cute couple? I hate them for it. you should join me....
*this is Stace showing her enthusiasm for their new PS3. she was excited to loose him to the basement to yet another gaming system...oh, wait that is a grimace, maybe not excited???

hello again...

I know I kinda fell off the face of the earth this summer. You 3 readers of mine, rest assured...I am here, and I am alive.

I am going to try to change the way I think about blogging. I've been thinking that I can only blog when I have something big or exciting to say. I am going to try to do more random, everyday blogging. and maybe get some bigger thoughts out there. we'll see. I'm not generally one to share deep big feelings, but we'll see.'s to a new leaf, new school year, new me????

Isn't it ironic??

Last night at appoximately 1 am (that's 2am compliments of daylight saving. dangit!) I was laying in my king size bed alone (obviously) reading.....wait for it....

rest assured the irony was not lost on me.

happy face

I think Westin took this picture. She must have told a good joke before she snapped it.

movie quote

My favorite movie quote*:
Kathleen Kelly: Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life. Well, not small, but valuable. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void.

*(well, honestly except for the cemetery scene in Steel Magnolias...."Half of Chic.a.Ping Parrish would give their eye teeth to take a whack at Wheezer...")

sad confession:

No kids home tonight and what does this crazy party animal do?

Turn up the ipod and....vacuum, at 10pm.

Sad, but rather liberating, I must say!

Not Me! Monday

I am jumping on the Not Me! Monday bandwagon, brought to us by MckMama and I'm pretty excited about the situation! I can think of all sorts of things I didn't do. In this week alone actually!

Let's start by saying it is not 10:43 pm on Sunday night and I do not have a 7 yr old who consistently has sleep issues on Sunday night therefore i am NOT letting her lay in my bed because she "doesn't want to waste sleep time reading a book." Who would let her get away with such a thing? Not this mom!

I also have absolutely never let my 11 yr. old play Animal Crossing for 3 hrs on a Saturday because she stayed up too late at a sleepover on Friday night and was a bit more than I wanted to wrangle with at that point in time....never done that.

At no point during this week let alone this day was there EVER 4 loads of laundry to fold, all in baskets, all at the same time. I did not let my 7 yr. old stay up a little past bedtime just so I would have company to pass the time.

I would never call my 7 yr old to ask if there was anything she wanted to take for treats for her half birthday that I could buy, because after a 9 hour day, skotcharoos were just too much work. what kind of lame-ass-mom would do that? a LAZY one that's who! not me! I did not get off the hook with brownies, from a box that required a mere 3 ingredients from my kitchen! I don't know who you take me for? but that woman is not me.

I did not buy flooring at IKEA planning on my dad helping me install it, without checking with him. That has bad idea written all over it. Not one of my ideas. nope. not mine.

I generally try to be a nice person, and I think I succeed. (I said generally, Josh)
But I saw this site and i think there is much more I and everyone can do every day. So from now on I am going to try harder, and see what happens.

slacker is how this goes. I have a post in my head or have a good picture to share, and I sit down at the computer to post...and what happens??? Well, I log on, then that friendly little icon pops up that i have mail (translation...someone likes me!) so I have to check that, then possibly click on some links. (because sometimes it is sales that like me...especially IKEA) which leads me to other places on the web, then I think of what I've been meaning to search for on Etsy, then go to my Bloglines. then possibly a messenger conversation or two, then who knows what...but what we do know is that it IS NOT a post on my blog. I really need to work on thins! Maybe no e.mail checking until post-posting???
