Quote of the Day
"Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing." ~Redd Foxx

~ Was woken by the sound of Hannah screaming for me at 5:45 AM. Ugh...

~ Came downstairs with the girls to find Steve already awake and the coffee already brewed. Thank you god (and Steve).

~ Volunteered the girls and I to go to the bank in the next town for Steve to deposit money. (Because I'm sweet like that... Snort!)

~ Ran to the gas station, the bank, and then home.

~ During this trip, I came within inches literally of slamming into a deer with my car. Thank god for anti-lock brakes is all I have to say. Stupid fucking deer.

~ Talked the girls into finger painting instead of going outside because it was still so early and really cold.

~ Put Hannah down for her nap and headed outside with Grace.

~ While playing football, went running at Grace like I was going to tackle her and about 2 feet in front of her, I slid on the mud, sliding right into her, knocking her legs out from under her, and sending both of us sliding across the muddy yard. We frickin' rule.

~ Watched Grace accidentally clock the neighbor's dog in the head with her feet when the stupid dog tried to run under the swing that she was currently swinging on. DOH!

~ Laughed when the dog ran back to the neighbor's house and wouldn't come back down to us. Oops.

~ Spent a good portion of the afternoon playing with a huge PVC sewage pipe (a clean one mind you) that Steve brought home from a job site last summer. Grace would crawl in it and I'd push her down the hill. Hours of entertainment.

~ Grace pushed me down the hill one time in the pipe and I almost threw up. The kid likes this? Freak.

~ Woke Hannah up from her nap and we went back outside.

~ Watched the girls play for two hours making "soup" out of ice water and mulch, wondering the entire time how their fingers weren't freezing.

~ Coaxed them back inside where I ate a fluffernutter for dinner. Yup, we're really that out of food. [sigh]

~ Steve and I finally picked a faucet for the kitchen and told his dad to order it (his dad is a plumber). Good thing since we NEED it here by next Monday for when the granite comes (they cut the holes in when they install the countertops).

~ Bit my tongue for an hour while Steve threw Grace around and wrestled with her and chucked her around like a football. Dude, she's four and she's a girl. For the love of god..

~ Had an "I told you so" moment when Grace got slightly injured and then cried because Steve wouldn't keep chucking her around like a ragdoll. The dude never learns.

~ Had both girls in their jammies by 5:30 hoping by some odd miracle, they'd crash by 7:00.

~ They didn't crash by then, but they were amazingly well behaved the entire evening, allowing me to read more of that book displayed over there on the left, that's just begging to be changed.

~ Got to watch Doug Wilson on Trading Spaces. Mmmmmm....

~ Wondered what the hell happened to John, the dude that won the "new designer" role. I saw him on like 2 shows and then he was gone. WTH? I loved him.

~ Was also excited t see Jimmy from Town Haul filling in as one of the carpenters. He' cool.

~ Am embarrassed to admit that I'm about to go make some Ramen noodles at 10:30 at night because I'm that hungry. I'd say a grocery store trip is in order for tomorrow...

Love the rolling down the hill in the pipe! Eric used to do that with his Grandma. He still laughs so hard he has tears rolling down his face when he talks about rolling her down the hill. Good times!

Ugh to Ramen noodles. That is all I have been cooking today and I am sooooo sick of them.

Ditsy Chick said...

What an active and good mommy you are...I miss my tv shows. If you want to know the latest on any cartoons I can catch you up, but TLC stuff, not a clue.

Alien said...

Oh my Ditsy Chich, I apparently have you fooled. LOL! I'm not normally this active with the kids. LOL! It's just that today was unseasonably warm and I HAD to take the girls outside or risk all of us killing each other inside the house one more day. Frankly, most days I ignore them. ;)

And yeah, I watch cartoons ALL DAY LONG. Ugh. But once the other people in the house are asleep, I'm all over MY shows. LOL!

Alien said...

Janet, Eric had a sewage pipe growing up too? YAY! We rule! LOL!

(Tell him if he gets you to fly here for the pig roast, he and I can take turns rolling each other down the hill.)

EE said...

Sounds like a kick ass day. You rocked as a mommy...and umm, made me feel a little guilty about what I did or didn't do w/ them. LOL

Janet's coming to the pig roast. She's my "chaperone" (bc apparently I've been told I'm not "allowed" to go w/o one) ;)

Alien said...

Damn you people! You're all guilting me into admitting the truth. The girls DID do all that stuff I said, but a lot of the time, I was just WATCHING them while they played with each other. [sigh] I feel like James Frey. LOL!

Alien said...

And LOL EE! Janet won't fly. :(

How do you feel about trains? LOL!

EE said...

I don't know........she keeps making hints that *possibly* she could get talked into it. I don't think my comment about it being a 3plus hour flight helped.

But when her and I talked on the phone yesterday she sounded like if Doug would let her be my "chaperone" she *might* be talked into it......;)

Is there a train???? LMAO

Alien said...

Well, the train goes into Philly, but I like you two, so I COULD possibly be persueded into coming to pick you up there. LOL!

EE said...

Hmmmmm..........

Alien said...

LOL! Although I think a train ride would be multiple days one way, so timewise, it may not be a very good option. I personally, would rather have you FLY in and spend those extra days here with me. Janet can cook for us or something. LOL!

Melissa said...

I frickin' dreamed about your pig roast last night. What the heck? LOL

Alien said...

Melissa, did you at least have fun? Because that's all that really matters. ;)

(And did EE's DH punch someone again? Because we're all kind of hoping not to have to relive that moment again. LMFAO!)

EE said...

And how cute was THIS guy that I told "he was cute and I'd go him"????

LMAO

EE said...

Fuck, DO him, not "go" him. WTF........lol

EE said...

Melissa, it must be a sign that you should come. I bet that's it. ;)

Let's see, it's January....I have what 6-7 months to work on Janet......I've had bigger hills to conquer ;) (like convincing Doug he's WACK for telling me I'm not "allowed" to go somewhere that I so totally AM)

Alien said...

LOL EE! Well, I must say that I'd be sort of honored if my annual pig roast contributed to like a freakin' DIVORCE. Dear lord... LMAO!

(I AM actually glad you're (supposedly) coming though. But for the love of god, PLEASE stay here with us instead of going to the Poconos. I barely got to hang with you last time.)

EE said...

No, nooooooooooo Poconos this time. I'm going to pass on "cheese fest" this time around. I plan on flying in Fri and spending until Sun at your palace, mainly in the kitchen. ;)

EE said...

Is Polo guy coming, btw?

Alien said...

LOL! Please tell me you meant to say "place" and not "palace". LMAO!

And um, I dunno. I don't even know when it is yet, dork. LOL! He's come every other year, so I'd say yes normally. But after last year's fiasco, maybe the answer is no? I dunno. From what I've heard, normally, he can really hold his own and has no problems fighting guys, so maybe the fight with D won't phase him? No clue. Um, do you WANT him to come? LOL!

mama_tulip said...

I made Dave take the kiddos out yesterday while I sat in the salon for two hours...because I'm good like that.

Dude, I can't comment on your most recent blog entry. I'm getting the same error that I was getting on EE's blog. I've been trying since lsat night and it's driving me crazy! Whassup with the comments?

EE said...

I said 'palace' to be funny, but yes, I did mean to say it. lol

Uh, no. I would way rather he not be there, lol. If he *does* come I can swear to god if Doug's there too I will not be coming w/in a 10mile radius of him. snort. There'd be me, hanging out down by the far end of the volley ball court or over in pig parking. LMAO

I don't care if he comes or not. By no means should you not invite or let him come bc of me. *I* personally don't have issues w/ him. lol

EE said...

Hey Alien, I just republished my entry (the one last night that was giving url errors) and it was fine. IDK what is up w/ it doing that. ????

Melissa said...

I'll be at Pigroast '09!

Janet said...

OK

1. The one freakin night I go to be early, everyone stays up????

2. Melissa don't wait until '09. If I go this year, you should go too:-)

3. EE, I talked seriously with Eric about going and he said he is up for it and all for babysitting you:-) He did say that maybe your hubby would go if he went and they could hang together??? I am checking on different travel arrangements to see what the best way to get there would be. Would you be able to tolerate me drugged up? LOL

Janet said...

We have the same exact faucet and I love it!

EE said...

Melissa?! Why pigroast '09???? LOL

Ya know Janet, as well Doug and Eric got along, that sounds like an AWESOME idea!

Of course I could tolerate you drugged up....and in turn you would have to tolerate *me* drunk off my ass at the pigroast. ;)

Melissa said...

Because Melly needs a job to be able to go flying off to PA for a pigroast. LOL

Janet said...

Melly just needs to set up a fund to get her to pigroast;-)

EE, I will tolerate you drunk if you can tolerate me drunk:-)

Allison, I will cook for you all weekend in that new kitchen of yours!!!!

Melissa said...

Any fund that Melly would set up now will be empty until there's another paycheck coming in, girlfriend. LOL

Janet said...

Everytime you want a diet coke, put the money for that in a bottle! You will be in PA in no time!

Melissa said...

That's crazy talk, Janet. Crazy talk.
