This blog is moving…..

I haven’t posted anything new lately because I have been trying to move over to Blogger. I do everything else through Google, so why not? My new blog link is HERE. I am still in the process of making it pretty and adding stuff to it, but I have transferred all of my posts over there. Still trying to figure out how to move the comments over from Disqus. (If you know how, please help!)

See you over on Blogger!

Celebrating Amber

Today, my baby girl turned 4 years old.

She was not happy that Mommy & Daddy were both going to be working today, so I decided to bring her to work with me. (Not recommended if you intend on keeping your sanity getting any work done)

First, there was painting:

Next - Sticking Littlest Pet Shop animals on Mom’s filing cabinet:

Watching a movie

"Booming" the bosses kid:

«<What is “Booming” you ask? Well, it’s where you take a “Boomer” (toy gun) and make “Boom” sounds while pointing it someone’s feet. (because Mommy says it’s not nice to point “Boomers” at people)

Oh yes, we cannot forget……
Swinging on the hammock so Mommy can smoke a cigarette. enjoy the sunshine.

Since we are not celebrating Amber’s Birthday until Sunday, we were not planning on getting her a cake for today. However, when I  found this cake at Waly World, I couldn’t resist.

My “baby” is growing up too quickly. sigh.

Bad News, Sad News….. What a crappy weekend.

Well, it is the second week in a row that I forgot to add my picture to the Flickr group 52 1/2 weeks of 2009. So, I quit. I didn’t forget to take the picture, just to upload it.  Sunday (the deadline to upload the photos) is just not a good internet day for me. It is the only day that my whole family is at home and I often forget to turn the computer on. The theme for this week was a self portrait. Since I did take it, I will share it with you.

I managed to stub my toe on Saturday. Amber left her Barbie Jeep out in the driveway and I was going to put it away so that it didn’t get stolen. Here I am bent over, trying to push it into the driveway when I get the bright idea to press the “gas” pedal with my hand so that it will be “easier” to manuver. That’s when the Jeep takes off at 5 MPH dragging me and my poor toe down the driveway. It hurts. Bad. The whole thing is black and blue and looks quite gross. I tried to take a pic to share with you, but you can barely see the bruising.

«<See the middle toe how it looks a bit purple? No laughing. I swear it is really bruised badly.


My husband is a sub-contractor who has been working with Circuit City for 10 years doing home theatre installations. Circuit City announced on Jan. 16 that they are going out of business. We were told not to worry because Firedog (the installation entity for CC) would be starting a new contract with Wal-Mart, now we have found out that this is not true. Firedog will be going out of business as well. Where does this leave us you ask? SCREWED. Big time. What to do, what to do?

I love this girl….

The theme for the SPT this week is: I resolve to take more portraits with people I love.
I was hoping to get all of us together for a quick photo last night, but as usual my plans were foiled. So, in a rush before I headed out for work this morning, I took this picture with Amber. She is ALWAYS willing to jump in front of the camera with me.

Drunk Drive

Here is another post for the Flickr group 52 1/2 weeks of 2009. The theme for the week was “Outside your house/Where you live) With only 5 minutes to take the picture, I did not get very creative. Here is the end product:

That sign hangs on the shed in the backyard. Pretty redneck huh?

Unfortunately, I forgot to upload it yesterday, so it did not get entered for the week. :( Story of my life., We won’t even begin to mention how horribly awful I have been in keeping up with NaBloPoMo. Oh well, at least 1 month this year I WILL  post everyday.

Soonor or later…….

……..they will all be gator bait!

Score by Quarters Score Florida 0 7 7 10 24 Oklahoma 0 7 0 7 14

Yes, that’s right. The Florida Gators are the 2009 National Champions. Can life  get any better than that? Now, I do have to admit that I did not watch the whole game. I wanted to, believe me, I REALLY wanted to. I wanted to watch the Gators win and then call my Dad and rub it in. However, as soon as I hit the bed, (beginning of 3rd quarter) I was out. I jumped out of bed in a panic (at 2am) this morning wondering if we won, then woke Keith because I guess my half-asleep happy dance was a little loud (Sorry honey!) I cannot wait to leave work and give my good old Daddy a call.

Sasha was even sporting her Gator-Gear for the big game!

The Rose That Grew From Concrete

This is in response to a blog prompt on Digital Scrapbook Place: Happy Birthday Elvis! Who is your favorite singer that is no longer living?

I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I heard that Tupac had died. It was September 13, 1996 and I was in the truck of my ex boyfriends father waiting for him to come out of a friends house.  Of course, I had heard that he was shot 6 days earlier, but I assumed that this would be like the last time. He would recover, and come back with another hit cd. Rap music was not something that I listened to a lot of, I was more of a pop music fan. But, there was something about him that immediately turned me into a fan the first time I heard his music. I cried like ababy.

In the Event of My Demise
by Tupac Shakur

In the event of my Demise
when my heart can beat no more
I Hope I Die For A Principle
or A Belief that I had Lived 4
I will die Before My Time
Because I feel the shadow’s Depth
so much I wanted 2 accomplish
before I reached my Death
I have come 2 grips with the possibility
and wiped the last tear from My eyes
I Loved All who were Positive
In the event of my Demise

Week 1/2

This is my first post for the Flickr group 52 1/2 weeks of 2009. I decided to go with this group since I am already participating in the SPT challenge from Lelly. I figured, how many photos of me could you actually want to see?

The “theme” of the week was the word START.

Here’s my photo:

We have made a new START buying our first home together. We STARTed Amber’s room first, and now all it needs is some paint.

I was going to blog tonight but…..No, really, I was.

I promised my son that I would let him use the computer if he cleaned up his room. Not only did he do that, but he helped with the dishes too.

Before signing off, I leave you with this bizarre story: Thor

Do you think he will keep it around just in case another one comes back?
