The case of the disappearing blogger

I am so sorry for falling off the face of the universe again. Life has been hectic lately. But October is winding down so I am hoping for a fairly low key November.

Let me try to describe my week.

When I left you last both Abbey's band and Greg's was going to Regionals. Both bands made it to State semi-finals.....although if you are a "friend" on fb  I said state finals......I was excited and didn't proof-read. Here are some of my sweet baby.

(Ewwww whats that smell......oh yeah the losers we beat)

Speaking of my sweet baby...I have a new little bundle of joy at my house.

Here is my new sweet Shih Tzu Fezzik (yup gotta continue the Princess Bride theme). He and Westley are just like brothers. It was so cute when they met each other. They play well together. Which is more than I can say for my girlies.

Not to be out done by the new puppy.....Wes got a new hat. A pirate hat which is fitting since he is the dread pirate.

Emmy had her dyslexia test. It is official she is dyslexic. 

We are waiting on the full report which will have the recommendations that will be made to the school. I can't wait to finally learn how to help her. The lady that performed the test was so amazing. She answered any question we had and even answered some we didn't know we should ask. She gave us a little rhyme to help Emmy with her bd confusing and pq. Taking that we made one to help with her nu confusion. So any teachers that read this......using the bed method for bd confusion does NOT help with dyslexic's. Ms. Stacey said hold a pencil in your right hand.....thankfully Em is right handed, make a thumbs up sign with your left hand....the b (notice it looks like a b) goes up. turn it thumbs down.....the pig goes down. Emmy said oh well the the n makes a nose(because thats how she draws noses). It was one of those ah ha moments when you just want to cry with joy  that it finally clicked. I hope we have many more of those. She is ok with the diagnosis. She has even had a sense of humor about it, When we left the testing center she said thank DOG that is over. I love my goofy girl so much.

I tried to make up for my absence with lots of you forgive me?

Speaking of forgiving. I know I mentioned the Greg thing in my last post. I am having the hardest time getting over this and trusting him again. I just don't really know how to proceed from here. Could you stay with someone that you didn't trust? Abbey said something really profound the other day (of course she doesn't know about this situation she was talking about her life) She said "love is not a feeling in your heart, its a thought in your head" then she went on to say at Valentines day she was going to give people pictures of brains......but she is a tad nerdy :) Not sure I 100% agree with that, because my heart feels pretty sore right now. What do you think?


just a little annoyed......

I feel like a Seinfeld episode. A life (instead of a show) about nothing.

I seriously was just thinking Everyone I know watches the Walking Dead and I just don't get it. I'm only on episode 2 but still. Did I miss how the zombie apocalypse got started? How is it that these undead things can barely walk and they out run and kill people? How is it that hitting them with a ball bat or something similar will kill them AGAIN? The show makes no sense.
I think I need to read this book. I NEED to understand the Zombie Apocalypse.

Of course I just started noticing that a bunch of stuff in my life makes no sense. Like how can people NOT have an email address in today's world. I'm not talking about old granny people I am talking about fairly youngish business owners. HELLO!! 90% of my business is done via the computer and Internet. I NEED you to catch up with 1990's technology. Why does my little kitty try to drink out of my water glass when he has a whole bowl full of water by his food? Why did it take me so long to think about putting a puppy pad by the trash can where Westley still insists on peeing? How can my boyfriend tell another girl that she's hot and is imaging her naked if he has no plans to pursue it?  I feel like the past is repeating itself since that's how we got together when he had a live in girlfriend. I feel like total crap. Makes me wonder if this is  why he has never wanted to live together?Uggh the whole situation just pisses me off and makes me want to puke. I'm torn between doing what I feared Peggy would do to me and that is send a message saying if you ever talk to him again I will tell you husband you are a cheating cunt. Or something along those line, and kicking him in the nuts. Or both


Saying Goodbye

Today is funeral visitation for a woman whose house I was at more than my own when I was growing up. She in my mind was a modern day June Cleaver. Their house was always spotless, food always great, and she always greeted all the kids in the neighborhood with a smile on her face.....even the Eddie Haskell variety.

My childhood neighbor's mom passed early Tuesday morning. She'd had a headache for a few days. On Sunday night, while getting ready for bed, she collapsed. The ambulance took her to the local hospital, who wanted to fly her out, but the wind was too bad. She got transported to another hospital and she passed away from a brain aneurysm.

This has made me think A LOT about death. like reflecting on my life are preparing for the kids future. I put a monster high doll house in layaway for Emmy yesterday and when they asked who else had authority to pick it up, instead of saying no one, I listed my sister.....just in case.

Mary was a happy, healthy wife and mother and Nana just four days ago. Today her daughter did her hair and makeup for the last time.  I just can't imagine leaving my babies right now. If I did though, I'd want them to know how much I love them. How much of a blessing they are to me. How proud I am of them and how glad I am that they are mine. Id hope my extended family would know that even though they annoyed me I loved them.

I have always tried to say what is on my mind so I don't regret not saying something. Even if that something is something that they don't want to hear. Reflecting on my life I am fairly happy where I am. I have two awesome kids, a job I LOVE and lets me pay my bills. I do wish I lived somewhere else. I wish my relationship wasn't in the sucky state its in. But I guess if those are the only two complaints then I am doing well.

This has also led to a conversation between my sister and I (because we are the ones that will be in charge of planning for each other) about what we would like to see at our funerals. I know its a morbid topic but one that needs to be said whether we want to hear it or not. I like to laugh. So I have said I would really like Metallica played. Nothing crazy although Ride the Lighting or Whom the Bell tolls would be good. Just something a little serious like Fade to Black and Nothing Else Matters. I'm not sure about flowers. Honestly I just don't care, I have only received flowers 3 times in my whole life unless I bought them myself. I'm such a planner I am surprised I haven't had all this written down and already starting the pre-planning process with the funeral home my family always uses.
Because really who can I trust to be as OCD about it as I am?

Your face is so ugly it makes me feel bad for you

Sorry I've been MIA for a week. I keep trying to write about what's been going on and on paper is looks like a big ball of boring even though I'm been busy.

We are winding down the Marching Band season. I kinda can't wait to have a life again. The girls are dying to go to to see Frankenweenie and Hotel Transylvania and we  just don't have any time.

Just two more weeks.....well then the next week is Halloween party week. I think Greg and I decided to go as Charlie Brown and the Little red Headed Girl. So I NEED a dress for a character no one has ever seen. Any ideas?

This week's highlights will be a PTO meeting tomorrow, making picture frames for trainers that will be training at our fall conference, and my Foundations of Effective training class starts tomorrow. I am excited about that. It is the class that will get me credentialed, and more band competitions next weekend. 


Guest Blogging

You should totally come visit me at Jess is More...Im guest blogging over there today. You get to read about my pinterest addiction and how it helped me solve a problem in my bathroom...3 girls+1 mirror= crazy mornings. Come on over, you know you want to. Its where all the cool kids are today ;)

Number 13

I have plans to check #13 off my 101 in 1001 list. I am having a theme party in just 4 short weeks. There is a million things to do...
  1. Awesome food
  2. Awesome Music (that's actually taken care of)
  3. Awesome decorations
  4. Keep people from getting drunk and peeing in my shoe AGAIN or puking AGAIN
  5. Find a Kick Ass costume
Ok so technically there is only 5. But I need ideas for the BEST Halloween party you have ever seen. Pinterest has been some help but not much if you can believe that.

biting my tounge

So seriously someone just asked me "So does your husband make a lot of money" I responded with I am my husband. but seriously how rude is that? I'd love to say the person who sad this redeemed herself during the rest of the conversation but she didn't and it got worse. Some people really need punched in the face.

Although, I did buy an awesome form fitting black dress to wear to a benefit next week so maybe I WILL have a husband who makes a lot of money :)

Maybe I should have told her that my next husband is going to be Lars Ulrich (drummer for Metallica)....Although I am iffy about Lars just because I should avoid drummers I don't have a good success rate with them.

or Chris Hemsworth You may know him as Thor

Is that pee in my shoe

OMG its been 4 days since I've checked in....Have you thought I had dropped off the face of the earth? I promise I have been busy. Lets see what have I been up too.....

Friday I was just too lazy to post. I should have done my usual Hf4F post and honestly I have no idea why I didn't.

Saturday I went to a know its a good party when someone pees in your shoe and pukes on the floor... and in my clean laundry.. Ok you don't know its a GOOD party by that, but you know you are partying with kids a few years past legal drinking age. on the bright side he thought I graduated from high school in 99. I'll take that :)I wish I could say I was awake to tell you about the puke and pee and how every light ended up on.....and all the furniture turned over but i had gone to sleep and apparently missed out on ALL the fun.

Sunday I tried to recover from getting a water bill that tripled my previous bills. I nearly died. Still not sure what happened but I need to figure that out.

Today I drove to our main office and met the girl who does my job for our other area. The new girls are great. I love my coworkers. I took Tom our It guy cookies.....Chips Ahoy since we all know how well I cook lol

I came home to a crock pot full of this The world's best chicken
Nope it wasn't. The chicken had a tangy and not good tangy taste and it seemed too sweet too.....if you can be too tangy and too sweet at the same time lol. Over all I say pass....if you must try some come to my house because I made enough to take to work for lunch and now I REALLY wish I hadn't.
