Graduation Festivities

On Friday, Chelsea graduated from preschool. Actually, she graduated from one class to the other, as it is not time for kindergarten yet. There was a little program and then we all went to Fuddruckers to celebrate her graduation as well as Damons. Damon graduated from his master’s degree program!! Huge accomplishment!!! So Damon’s parents [...]

The excitement is hardly controllable!! Can you tell how excited??? Waiting in line for our first of 4 Merry-Go-Round rides!! “I LOVE THIS!!” – Chelsea [...]

It’s Friday!

Sorry this is late today. Well, I had a relatively undisturbed sleep last night…I don’t know if I liked it! I missed the kids! It was just different being 100% responsible for the two cuties, and then I just left. Kinda sad…I thought I would share some pictures from our mid-week adventure. I will leave [...]


Damon and Tracy have arrived back so I just arrived home. I had a TOTALLY great time with the cuties… I am just exhausted. I bow down to all parents and kiss the ground they walk on. So to the keeper of schedules and the hauler of many many bags…I salute you. I am now [...]

David Cook!!!

Tonight is the last chance for David Cook to impress America with his stunning vocals and delicious looks! I am excited to watch (after the Cuties are in bed of course!) but sad that American Idol is coming to an end!! Boo hoo! I hope that David Cook wins, but I have to agree with [...]

Responsibility Overload..But I Can’t Wait!

Starting today after work, I will be in charge of the Cuties until Thursday afternoon! Tracy and Damon are going out of town to celebrate their 10th anniversary and have a much-deserved and long overdue vacation. They are leaving this morning and Tracy’s mom will have the kids until I am done with work. I [...]

Don’t Send Me Interesting Pictures…

…unless you want to see them on my blog!!! Last night, I received a picture text message from my oldest younger brother showing off his new haircut! He said he did it because he didn’t want to keep paying the ridiculous amount he was paying for haircuts! I think he did it because my dad [...]

Trying To Be a Big Boy

Taser, Taser, Taser. That dog is crazy! That dog cracks me up. I have to share a Taser-ism for you today. Taser is trying to be a big boy dog and lift his leg to relieve himself. He does it on trees, curbs, or even sides of houses. He is not picky. But the thing [...]
