Say Goodbye ...

It's time again to say goodbye to another year. We mark it up in the history of our minds as 2006! So tonight we celebrate that we lived it. We also welcome the New Year with what ever it has waiting for us. We stand strong and say"Bring It On"!

May 2007 teach us all. If it gives us Rocks will learn to make them Roll and be better humans for it.

Now for those of you who might celebrate to much, I give you THIS to learn before you party!

Make sure that you eat cabbage tomorrow so that you'll have enough money next year!

Here's wishing you
Peace, Love and Joy
in
2007

Bag!

Have the airlines ever lost your luggage? With everything you've got to go through to fly these days it's a total insult for the airlines to lose your bags. Where's the security on the luggage?

How would you like to get this call: "In Houston, Texas in a dumpster behind a pet store we found your luggage!"

When I read the article I was dismayed. They almost shut down airports checking people and then they forget to watch the luggage. That's crazy!

I always knew the Coke would get me!

This is not the Coke I thought was going to kill me but now they are tell all of us it is. Now if you drink Diet Coke your dead already and just haven't fell over yet. Diet drinks and embalming fluid have got to be the same thing. Now the whole "More Dangerous Than Smoking" sorry not buying that one. Maybe that depends on what your smoking.

Speaking of bad for you drinks, my husband got me a Coffee Press for Christmas. Yeah I almost OD the first day from caffeine. It's good but it's not a power mug drink. My hands are shaking just thinking about it.

Hey I'm a Wake...

Did you have a good Holiday? Some better then others I'm sure. Last year I was very sick during Christmas so I was thankful that I wasn't this year.



That picture reminds me that I don't ride my Mountain Bike enough. Maybe that's something I should do more of in the coming year.

What Flag Is This?

Yes folks this is a test? Do you know your flags?

True story, some years back I walked into my sister's (who's 11 years older then me)wearing these pants and she gave me a pissed off look. "What?" She gets all huffy and says "I can't believe you'd wear those pants!" So ok my Scot grandfather might roll over in his grave but I thought the pants made me look hot. Then my sister starts calling me a racist. It took me a few minutes to get it and then I rolled my eyes.

Just because I'm from Indiana does not mean that I'm a total redneck that would go around sporting the confederate flag on my pants.

So tonight I'm going to a party and I think I'll wear these pants. Let's see if the Texans know what flag this is.

I'm Locked Out Of My Bedroom!!!

My husband is in the bedroom with the door locked. Wonder what he's doing in there. Could he be wrapping my Christmas present? Hmmm

Last night I started my transformation into a Holiday Slob. It's all about the junk food!

My cat Sasha is the best free gift I ever received!

Unusual Christmas Gifts


How many people do you think are getting toilets for Christmas? So today I was thinking about unusual Christmas presents. While cleaning my bathroom I thought if someone gave me a toilet as a Christmas present what would I say? Uhhhh...

Have you ever looked up Toilets on the internet? I found biblical toilets. It says they are of Greek design and I had to laugh. I also found a Toilet that cost almost $6000. What? Please don't make me go into the waterless Toilets.

Ok I think I got that worked out of my system!

Christmas Songs

So what is your Favorite Christmas song?
This song pulls at my soul.

My grownup Christmas wish

Do you remember me?
I sat upon your knee
I wrote to you
With Childhood fantasies

Well I'm all grown-up now
Can you still help somehow?
I'm not a child
But my heart still can dream

So here's my lifelong wish
My grown-up Christmas list
Not for myself
But for a world in need

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
Every man would have a friend
That right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown-up
Christmas list

What is this illusion called?
The innocence of youth
Maybe only in our blind belief
Can we ever find the truth?

There'd be no more lives torn apart
And wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
Every man would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown-up Christmas list

This is my only lifelong wish
This is my grown-up Christmas list

Lyrics by Linda Thompson Foster

Home

Yesterday they did the "Bus driver move that bus!" If you watch the show you know what I'm talking about. Friday night the helicopter flying over head about drove me crazy. Saturday my son comes in the house telling me "Mom, Mom! Ty's up there!" Sunday! There were cars everywhere around here. There was a shuttle bringing people into here! No I didn't go over to the house until today. They still have the street blocked off and plenty of security on hand.

Ok I'm not cracked up about the mustard yellow color on this house. I did get a sneak peak at the back yard and they did make good use of the small space. It's funny the house has the only green yard around.

Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.

On to twinkle lights and a partridge in a pear tree! Ho Ho Ho

The House is Huge!!!

Well these are not the greatest pictures in the world but I tried. I left my house I should get a Gold Star for that. Trinity was crying because she wanted to get out of the trek and go running around. She had a cute 3 year old little boy who was trying to help her escape.

Must of the houses in this neighborhood are one level dwellings. There are a few split level houses. So when you see this three story Monster it is striking. The streets around are very tight so they had to block many of them to bring in the trucks with the building supplies. All in all it's been fun to watch from my part of the street.

This house sits on a corner and I don't think there is going to be much yard. There is a nice park just a block down the street. My back story on the family comes from my son, so?! He told me that the woman has 7 children with autism. (word for word what he said) So that means this is very dear to us because of our good Indian Momma friend,The Cool Single Mom, Teresa.

I did get to see Eduardo Xol! Sorry pic's on the fly. Yes, ladies he is that good looking. This has been real fun for me because I watch the show. They recently did a show in Indiana and my parents went to check out the house there. What are the odds I'd get to do the same here?

The Extreme Makeover Home Edition is doing a house down the street. It's trucks up the street and then trucks down the street. I'm thinking about walking over to be nosy later today. I really want a picture of the Bus!

OTannenbaum

It's a Christmas Tree. It's not a plot for world domination. I don't care if you celebrate 8 Crazy Nights or if you sit alone in your home screaming Bah Humbug just don't go screwing things for the rest of us. I really mean KIDS! Our childhood memories are filled with beautiful Christmas Decorations. Shouldn't all children be allowed that.

I think my Mom should invite the Rabbi for a visit. My Parents live in Santa Claus, Indiana!

Stories from the Ice Castle

The night wind wailed and whispered down the abandon night streets of the town. She walked alone down the middle of the road looking like a ghost wearing a white evening gown and full length white fur coat. In her left hand she carried a crystal bourbon glass. She walked along looking at the Christmas lights outside of the little shops with the eyes of a big cat on the prowl.

At the end of the street was a floral shop with a beautiful Christmas window display. Being careful of patches of snow and ice she moved toward the shop. Stand in front of the plate glass she gazed at the wonders within. She placed both of her hands over her heart when she saw the beautiful Christmas cactus. One single tear rolled down her cheek.

With a snap of her fingers the plate glass disappeared. With her free hand she picked up a cactus plant from the display and nestled it under her arm. Snapping her fingers the glass returned once more. Again she started out on her ghostly walk down the cold abandon street.

The cemetery gates opened by themselves as she walked through. The ghost woman who carried a cactus in one hand and a glass of bourbon in the other flowed down the rows of head stones. Finally she stopped at a huge gravestone that only had the letter “P” marked on it. She placed the Christmas cactus down in front of the head stone. After downing the bourbon in the crystal glass she said “I told you staring at women’s tits would be hazardous to your health one day.” With a smile she turned her head and started to walk away. Just then a snow ball came up out of the grave and hit her in the ass. She laughed wildly and disappeared into the night.

Boys! And the Problem Starts There


Folks we are really going wrong somewhere with are young men in this country. Today in a town not far away they charged 4 boys because it is believed that they were trying to make NAPALM. One was the son of a Deputy Sheriff. How well do you think that went over. Now it is not believed that they planned to use it to blow away anybody but really what the hell were they thinking. Then I remember the movie "October Sky". Homer Hickam got arrested in 1957 for making Rockets.

I don't know if the 4 charged today had mean spirited ideas in their heads or just the wish to see if they could make something go Boom. Hey boys, when Forrest Gump said he thought something jumped up and bit him, it was the Napalm. I like the idea of young men thinking about something other then cars and boobs. But after Columbine, thinking of ways to make bombs wasn't a great idea.

People will say "Boys will be Boys". Yeah well, when Men start acting like Men again that phrase won't bother me a bit. Till then I'm a Mom and I'm worried.

Here I am a Wassailing...




What's going on? My Reader is full of post so there's been a lot of blogging going on around here. I've had more hits on my blog in the last few days and I haven't even post anything. What does that mean? I've had lots of visitors from non-English speaking countries. That really embarrasses me. "Lets see what the crazy American woman is yacking today!" I'm just like the Star Wars Kid in other countries. LOL That's scary!

I had a wonderful Snow Weekend. Not! I helped (did) science fair project. I hate science fair projects. On Monday night I had a blast with dinner guest. Trinity has a new little friend and it a boy. She gave him a big hug when he left. It was so cute. I read The Killing Club during my snow weekend.

To anyone with young kids, please check out the Signing Time videos on DVD. I'm having a blast leaning Sign language with Trinity. You can also check out the show on PBS!

On the Dashboard here at Blogger I checked out the "Blogs of Note" or something like that. I found BlueSky Studios. That place is a trip. Check out Halloween and look for the twin girls from the shining. That's damn good.

Today will be Blog Day! There are many blogs I needed to stop by and say Hi. Other blogs I need to check out so I can share them with all of you. And I still need to find that one blog I saw at MyBlogLog.

Snow Day!

Yesterday I took a Snow Day! No, it did not snow in Austin but it was windy as hell. Wednesday night at 10:00 it was 70 degrees out side and we had tornado warnings. At 6:30 Thursday morning it was 33 degrees and raining. I think the high yesterday was 38 degrees here. Nothing like going from AC to heat in less then 6 hours.

Ok back to my Snow Day. I finished putting up my Christmas decorations in the house. I read a book. I made meatloaf and mash potatoes for dinner. I didn't touch the computer but I get bonus points because I did take a shower. I watched part of the new Superman movie. I kept think about Christopher Reeves and almost cried. All in all it was a perfect Snow Day.

I like pictures. Wow who knew. I found this blog "Through the Lenses". She has a good eye for photos. If you want to get lost in pictures check out "stock.xchng". I think I spent 2 hours there the first time I went.

To all the Jewelry makers and designers out there I'd like to say "Hot Damn"! In the last few weeks I've seen some pretty and sharp looking pieces. You all are making Mall jewelry stores look boring. Check out The Blue Dress if you want to see a little Wow!

Ok I think I'll have a Snow Weekend. I've got a book, popcorn, twinkle lights everywhere and the stuff to make a Red Velvet cake. Yeah it's a Snow Weekend! Get the peanut butter we're making cookies.
