Just some thoughts

I am really liking that they are doing two seasons of Hell's Kitchen this year. Gives me something decent to watch on Tuesay nights. This week I watched the new show More to Love that came on after HK. I am not sure what bothered me more. The name of the show or the stories some of the contestants shared. Correct me if I am wrong but I thought the average American woman was around 160-200lbs. So why is the show called more to love? Why isn't the other show called Less to Love? They said the average size of those contestants was a size 2. Somehow I do not see that as normal. Ok I will get off my soapbox now.

Jeff is sick. He has some kind of summer cold or crud. He is so whiney it is not even funny. I mean if I get sick I have to make my own homemade chicken noodle soup. No one brings me cold rags while I lie on the couch. My life still has to go on like I am not sick and feel like death warmed over. Oh well at least Daniel is not here to catch it from him.

This is our last child free weekend. We head to AL next Thursday when we get off work. Daniel is still not talking to us. They went to see Ice Age 3 yesterday and Mom said it was really good. Not sure what Daniel's opinion on it was lol.

My 4 year old is giving me the silent treatment

Daniel has been in AL a little over a week and I have talked to him twice. For about 5 minutes. TOTAL. He is "too busy" to talk lol. Mom had to MAKE him get on the phone with Jeff and I this weekend. He has gone to the park a LOT, been swimming, gone and spent the day with my mother in law and went to church with them. Played at the park with my brother in law and wore him out from what Mom said. Today he is going to the Anniston Natural History Museum to see the dino bones and all the other exotic animals and artifacts they have. I warned mom he likes to touch. Hopefully we will not have to um replace any expensive items that he breaks. Maybe he will not try and take the dinosaur bones home with him. Then again maybe he will. You never know with him.

We have been enjoying our free time. We have watched a LOT of movies. With no interuptions. In complete silence. WONDERFUL! We went to Olive Garden and enjoyed a nice peaceful adult only dinner. We had a blast Saturday at a wedding party. And get this. I slept until NOON on Sunday. Ok not all the way until noon, but off and on until then. It was glorious!

Jeff is excited because the hot peppers are starting to show up at the farmer's market again. I got enough to can 5 jars of pepper sauce this weekend and will keep on every other week or so until there are no more left. He was starting to get worried because he just opened the last jar from last year's stash and was afraid he would run out. OH THE HORROR!!! Heaven forbid he should run out of pepper sauce! Seeing as how he is the only person in the house that eats it, he better be glad I love him enough to make it for him.

What has been going on in ya'lls worlds? I need to catch up on my blog reading.

Why yes I am alive

I have not posted in forever and I have barely been able to get on article a week on I have had several good stories to tell but no time to do it in. Work has had me swamped for the past few weeks. Plus it seems like there is always something going on on the weekends. If we are not doing something then I am trying to catch up on laundry and cleaning. Or just being lazy because I am too tired to do anything. Maybe after this week at work things will finally calm back down. Not going to hold my breath on that one though.

Daniel left Saturday with Jeff's family for AL. Well actually he left our presence Friday night. When everyone got ready to go to the hotel, he grabbed his "pack pack" of toys he had had packed for 2 days and said "Ok I am ready!" We tried convincing him that he needed to spend the night with us at home but he was not having any of that! His response: "But you said when they got here I was LEAVING!" So he spent the night at the hotel. We met up Saturday morning for an early lunch and he barely had time to say 3 words to us. He was busy with his cousins! After a hug ("But NO kisses Mommy!) for me and Jeff he was on his way to see his Mimi, Grampie, and Melgie.

It was REALLY quiet after he left, but it was a nice relaxing weekend. We checked out a Lexington Horsemen's (Arena Football team) game Saturday night since the tickets were only $5. Had a blast. The best part of the whole weekend though was the fact that I slept until almost 10am Sunday morning! I have not been able to do that in months!

I am going to get back on the blogging train again and post more than once a month. I have lots of funny stories to share from my past months absence.
