I'm A Nerd...

I am participating in the regular Friday Meme Friday Confessional Hosted by Mamarazzi...


I confess...

I am a huge bit of a nerd.  We rented RANGO on demand the other day.  The kids loved it.  A confession within a confession--Ryan can be hard to watch a movie with and a total blast.  This one he was the ladder.  His reactions to things were classic.  I digress.  Whether or not you have seen this movie is not important, there is a snake...Jake the Snake.  He's a bad dude.  Real bad.  And his voice was bugging me.  Now I have hearing issues, but if I hear an actor that sounds familiar I am hitting IMDB before the next line is uttered.  He sounded like Davey Jones from the Pirates movies.  Minus the English accent.  Jake had a Southern Drawl.  But there was something about his voice and the delivery and I just couldn't let it go.  So I went looking.  And sure enough.  It was indeed the same actor.  See.  Nerd.

I confess...

I had a chocolate shake from Jack -in-the-Box last night.  But in my defense, I think I earned it.  What a day!  What a couple of days!  Getting my two daughters registered for school has been (and continues to be a hoop jumping--red tape maneuvering nightmare)  Right now I have Kristin all set for school.  Finally!  Yippe.  And for $26 less than I anticipated.  She is raring to go!  Emily is nearly there.  And that my friends, is another blog for another day!  Ryan is done.  He is easy.  First grade yo!  I just need to get the phone call to see who his teacher will be.  Should get that call today.  And I think I have about two more laps for Emily.  We will get there.  School starts on the 11th.  We will make it.
I confess...

I have a lot that needs to be done around the house.  But instead I am going to go and play with my friend, Emmy!  And well our kids get to play too.  We planned this a while ago.  And hey, I deserve it.  The mess isn't going to suddenly clean itself.  But wouldn't that be so cool if it did?  And the laundry will wait for me to put it away.  
I confess...

I want to sleep for about 30 hours.  Sometimes I think I will go to bed at 10.  And then I go to bed at midnight as usual.  

I confess...

It has been a very long week.  It feels more like a month.  I am ready for it to be over.

I confess....

I used the wrong button up there...and I didn't even know it.  I was that tired...this is the button for confessional....

Proud Mommy Moments--Are You Bored?

I had to go to the orthopedic doctor for the results on my MRI.  I had arranged with my mom to watch the kids...not that I really need that.  Kristin is old enough to care for them, but I had already been gone all morning. 

Kristin is my natural born worrier, and there was a possible chance I had a tear and that would require surgery to repair.  She wanted to come with me.  I warned her it would be boring.  It's always a long wait.  And it was.  Waiting in the waiting room was the easy part.  It was waiting for the doctor that took forever.  At one point, Kristin looked at me and asked, "Are you bored?"  What can I say?

I was indeed.  My knee is fine.  I just need physical therapy.

Just Don't Want To...

Sometimes I just don't want to do just about anything I am supposed to do.  Fill in the blank:  laundry, clean, parent, but it also extends out further to the fun things that I enjoy.  Sometimes I don't want to blog, edit my photos, it's all work and no fun.

Today I have to take Kristin to the HIGH SCHOOL....HIGH SCHOOL folks! To register.  I am fighting with the middle school.  I have been having nothing but trouble for Emily's schooling since May.  She was supposed to register yesterday!  Yeah thanks for the heads up!  No email.  No phone call nothing.  I just happen to be on the site and saw that it was that day.  Plus her friend called and wanted to compare schedules.  Made me so mad!

I have to sit down and figure out how to juggle money around because we are behind on so many things.  That doesn't help my mood any.  I don't want to mess this either.  But procrastinating doesn't help.  It just makes it worse. 

So what do I do?  I have to suck it up, and do the things I need to do.  Fight with the middle school, fork out $50 for the high school, and pull up my big girl panties and deal with it.

Random Tuesday...

This is my computer for now.  Two keyboards.  Hey at least it works!  I am happy about that.  I was so worried.  I can not tell you how many pictures I thought would be lost.  Time to make some discs.  Upload to photobucket.  something! It's bad!  It's like in the thousands!  So yes it is a very good thing, but the original keyboard is still trying to work and will type random things like 8's and +'s.  Sometimes it will go in the search bars and start typing a whole bunch of 8's.  but mostly it is quiet.

I get a replacement keyboard in two days.  I hope that it fixes everything.

I got to hold my beautiful new (grand) nephew.  My husband made the mistake of calling me Great Aunt...I  Like my lovely can call her Aunt Susie or Susie...but not Great Aunt.  No way.  auntie is fine.  my niece calls me "Auntie." so her son can do the same.

When Ryan was born he peed on the doctor.  When my grand nephew was born...he POOPED!  Yep!  This one is trouble!  He is full know.  I just thought that was hilarious.  He was also 6 days late.  But, his mom is always late.  So it makes sense.

It's hot.  And humid.  Humid here means the humidity is up to about 30%.  Now I know humidity.  I lived back East for 6 years.  I know that sticky awful, need to take 25 showers humidity.  But we've been here for 4 years and so we are used to that "dry heat." So when the humidity goes anywhere above 15% we are dying.

I took my sister shopping yesterday.  She doesn't have a car.  I have been there.  And it sucks not having a vehicle.  I bought us cokes at sonic.  yum.

I have been watching Everybody Loves Raymond....I am so glad that woman is not my mother in law!  She is awful! Even to her own kids.  Except Raymond.  Well even to him.  And the funny thing is, she is totally unaware...or at least she appears to be!

I am going to see my niece again today.  okay i just want to hold that sweet little baby again.  Can you blame me?
Just look at all those rolls! hahaha. 

Have a happy "random" Tuesday!
