I'm loosing it!! Well at least my camera.

Well we had all kinds of Halloween fun today, I did the party thing at Jeana's school and with the 5 million bags of candy that we handed out, I somehow left or lost my camera. I think it is in Jeana's class room but I can only remember taking pictures of the kiddo's eating all their goodies. And I do mean their was TONS, if I ate all of that I would be sick. They had a goodie bag full of candy, a popcorn ball, a cookie with icing on top, 2 pieces of pizza, a apple, juice and various other candy that parents brought to hand out. Thankfully my child only ate 1 piece of candy and saved the rest and her pizza and half of the popcorn ball. She saved the cookie for later and the apple too. The girls looked so good and we carved some awesome pumpkins too. I took pictures with Jana's camera since mine was MIA. We took Jana's friend with us to trick or treat and next year we will have to ask a friend for Jeana. It is late and I am sitting up waiting for my meds to kick in so my ears will quit ringing. I loved the parade with all the kids at Jeana's school. Some of my favorites I saw was Sara Palin, a ant at a picnic and that cute little witch that is related to me! Jana's in middle school and they don't dress up there. She did the trick or treat thing but it is close to the end for that I think. Anyway I will post pictures later so you can see the girls and our pumpkins. I'm starting to get tired so I guess I will lay down.

I almost flamed my Mom

So when I was ranting this morning about the cake not being right, I forgot to tell you that I almost set my Mom's hair on fire when Jeana was blowing out the candles. I took the lid off the cake and lit the candles and you know how the cake is usually on a scalloped board when you buy it? yes this one was too. Also there is usually a black flat bottom that the lid snaps on too. Well I left the scalloped board on the black bottom and after the candles were lit I walked over to the table while singing happy birthday. Well I told my husband to take the picture and I tipped the cake slightly so he could get Jeana blowing out the candles. At that moment I tipped the cake and it began sliding towards my Mom's head flaming candles and all, I righted it and it began to slide still lit at me! I then stuck my finger in the cake to stop it and at the same time Jeana blew out the candles. I thought I was going to have a heart attack. I saw my Mom's head on fire in the flash before I righted the cake. Jeana was not bothered in the least, I apologized for sticking my finger in her cake and she responded by "fixing"it herself with her fingers, so I responded by saying I guess that is your piece. Oh well Happy Birthday sweetheart!

Coughing, Coughing , and more you know!

Well if you can't tell by the title of this post, I'm sick, I feel like I have been hacking my lungs up all weekend and doesn't seem to help. I have taken breathing treatments and Mucinex till I am fed up with it. I didn't go to bible study because I thought everyone else would like to HEAR the Video. My poor husband, I doubt he got any sleep the last two nights and he never said a word. He just hugged me this morning. He even started to make his own lunch with out me asking him too. I told him I would do it, I mean everyone wants their lunch laced with cough germs right? My parents were here this weekend and we had a pretty good visit with them, we took Jean and Jana to see High School Musical and had a lot of fun with that. I still like the first one better but it was a pretty good conclusion to the others. There were some highly funny parts. Well I better get off here I have to fix some one's costume for them, and find a old picture of me with my siblings for my grandmother's album. I only have a few, my Mom has more but I don't think she is really into looking right now, she look so tired this weekend. This whole thing with my grandparents is dragging at her. It would help if she lived in the same town, but she tried to get them to move like 6 to 7 years ago when the house next to her was for sale but no my grandfather wouldn't do it. I want to say this now, I love my grandfather BUT he has not once done anything to help my aunt and Mom to make taking care of them easier.
Oh and my parents were here because it was Jeana's birthday. Friday I ordered a cake Jeana wanted a Halloween type cake and I was not into coloring a bunch of icing and piping pictures on the cake, she wanted ghosts and I couldn't find any ghost to stick on it like rings or toys that would do. So we went to order one and told the lady, we want it Halloween with purple frosting and orange piped trim. We want a spider web and spiders and some ghost maybe. Well went I went to pick it up it wasn't anything like I said it was not all purple and orange it was airbrushed instead with a small hint of purple and had these creepy trees and small little ghosts. NO Spider web, no orange trim the only thing that was right was the Happy birthday Jeana, I was so mad, but the lady said her cake decorator didn't show up today and so we couldn't get it fixed. So I took it and Jeana said it was cool but I was still mad. I mean what is so hard with purple and orange??? well I must go take some more medicine and hack some more...

Look what was sent to me.

Ok, I'm not really a drinker but I might want to if.....

Why parents drink:
The boss wondered why one of his most valued employee had not phoned in sick one day. Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers, he dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whisper. "Hello ?" ''Is your daddy home?" he asked. "Yes ," whispered the small voice. "May I talk with him?" The child whispered, " No ." Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy there?" Yes. ''May I talk with her?"Again the small voice whispered, "No ." Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, "Is anybody else there? ''Yes ,"whispered the child, "a policeman ".Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, "May I speak with the policeman?" ''No, he's busy", whispered the child. "Busy doing what?" ''Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman ," came the whispered answer. Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, "What is that noise?'' A helicopter, answered the whispering voice. "What is going on there?" demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive. Again, whispering, the child answered, "The search team just landed a helicopter." Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked, "What are they searching for?" Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle..."ME ."

Another Day gone by.

We found out about my grandfather's pet scan. The email about it was super complicated but the short version is that he doesn't have any cancer in his brain he has some small places in his neck but the most of it is in his stomach area. They are going to do some mild form of chemo, suppose to have mild side effects. It will last for at least 2 years.
My brain is kinda fried and I can't think of what I was going to write about a few minutes ago. I realize that I missed a step in my sewing project and now it is making more sense. Amazing huh! I'm really proud of Jeana she got 3 jewels tonight at awana. That is a lot of bible verses said. She has been working super hard on it this week. Well I should go to be so I'll get more done tomorrow. I have 2 projects going and I need to finish them up quickly. One is my daughters costume and the other is Mamaw's photo album. I didn't find too much to use on Tuesday. But spent too much time looking at old photo's. I will look at the albums tomorrow and scan some to use. It would help if I could remember what I did with the book that I am going to but the pictures in. I know I put it in a place that I thought I would remember but I DON'T. I that note maybe I will sleep on it and remember in the morning. Anything is possible.

Don't you love the smell of BURNT Chocholate

Why is it when I don't plan things out they all go haywire? Last night I was talking to a old friend when it was bedtime, so I failed to lay out clothes for Jeana for school and write down the books she had read in her folder. So I was rushing around getting things done when I as assaulted with a very strong smell. Then I heard Jana say why is my pop tart burnt? Both her Daddy and I go in the kitchen and say how long did you microwave it for? She said 2 min. I said 2 min. !! I said 17 seconds. It's not a pizza pocket! She just looks at me and said oh I forgot. I mean sometimes she is soooo BLOND. Sorry if you happen to be blond but you know what I mean. She only cooks 2 things in the microwave, pop tarts and pizza pockets but she got the times mixed up. Sometimes for a smart cookie she is a little whacked. Any way after she went on to school and left me with the burn smell and pop tarts I had to rush to get Jeana to school, Why, Why is it when you are in a hurry they NEVER have the same sense of urgency that you do. That SO makes me turn into a raving Lunatic. I mean must she drink her milk one spoonful at a time???? So now I am back home from taking her to school, I just hope she doesn't do that with her work today. She got in trouble last week and got a sad note for not finishing her work. I'm not sure she can see like she should probably time to go to the eye doctor. Brian and I both got glasses in 1st or 2nd grade and Jana did also.
Still waiting to hear about my Grandpa's pet scan, so I guess I will go find some photo's for Mamaw's book, I need to get that finished this week.

Not what I had Planned

Well, I'm not so blah anymore, I was annoyed this morning, I had my whole day planned and RING, the phone rang, they wanted me to work, so out was bible study, setting up for AWANA, going to the store, and doing laundry and in was taking care of all the little monsters, or as my husband called them Satan's spawn. They were really not as bad as they have been before but they couldn't be called good in most people's book. But I did it, actually I was fine with it this morning until I realized I made me a salad for lunch and then forgot the dressing to go with it. I mean did you think I was going to eat carrots, spinach and all that with NO dressing?? So I had some lovely animal cookies for lunch, yes thank you it was so nutritious and delicious. I washed it down with the leftover coke I had with my breakfast. The downer for the day was my arm was killing me by the time I left. So I had better get back to sewing my daughters costume the go go dress is going good so far. (knock on wood) I got a phone call from a old friend and talked way to long to her, but I'm so glad we talked, it felt so good. Why do we let things like that go? We shouldn't let those people slip away.

Ever have the blahs? I think that is my problem, I feel tired, nothing is exciting to me and I dwell on depressing things. I even find it depressing that I have not much to write about. For those of you following about my grandfather, he has gone to the oncologist and will be having chemo and that's all I know, except it won't be oral it will be IV and that makes it harder for my family. BUT I should have known it would be IV, I mean has anything been easy to deal with so far? Sorry that's the half empty side of my family talking. Well Jeana had a hard week but she seemed in good spirits today because of the apple celebration. Everyone loved the apple bread I made, and that should have made my day, but well it was just OK. Well I have to get going because I need to be on time to pick up Jana because she stayed for quiz bowl. Then we are off to the Library.
