Not here for catch up

It's been so long since I've posted that it will take too long for me to type and too long for you to read about everything that's been going on. I will just occasionally reflect on things when they strike my fancy. So, that being said...How the hell are you??? I've checked in every now and then on many of you. I guess I can go ahead and at least explain the absence. In a suite meant for five people, we were housing seven. Now, this blog is my secret spot. I have a public MySpace for everyone else. But I don't want this one to be known so that when I want to vent, I can.

...Anyway, one of the seven people in the room was my Sweety's 18 year old daughter who is a royal pain in my ass. This kid has pretty much caused nothing but grief since the day I met her. The typical 'My-parents-divorced-when-I-was-young-and-any-woman-my-dad-likes-is-taking-him-away-from-me!' I'm sure you have heard of the type. She makes up stuff to cause fights between us and she watched every move I made on the computer. It drove me nuts!!!!!!!!! So I couldn't log in. It's like she never even slept. I even tried to get up in the night and she would hop up too and come to the computer. Finally I asked her, "Is there a reason you are constantly over my shoulder?" She said no and stayed right there. AAAUUUUGGGHHHH!!!!!

Anyway, I'm back at the house now. We are planning to move to another town. The Realtors are coming look at the house and hopefully we will be in a house (or apartment ) by the end of the month...before school starts. We will be closer to both of our families. The main reason for this because Vinnie will be traveling so much and I have no one in this town if I needed something. He's gone so much that we weren't even home for two days and he got a call to go on another job. He was planning to take a few weeks off, but this one was too good to pass up. Have you ever seen the movie Armageddon, with Bruce Willis and all of the roughnecks? Well, that's what it's like for Vin. There is this group that he is now in and when there is a job that's needing a crane crew...he's on the list. And they come from all over the states to one place and get the job done. He got a call around 4 pm to head to a job. Two hours and three calls from other guys later I was booking him a ticket to fly out at 7 the next morning. I have no idea how long he will be gone. When we find out if we are getting the house we really want, I will just hire some movers.

Well I took a few pics to send to Vin of myself...I'll try them out on you first...

Wacky Wednesday

I know it isn't wednesday but I had to tell you about the one that I just had. You could say it was a red letter day on the calendar. I started the morning with a really high high and a really low low.

Vinnie called me from work and said that he won tickets to the Angels/Astros baseball game for that evening (really cool because we had already planned to go and got FREE tickets for way better seats than what we would have been able to get when we arrived). So we were really excited. Boomer's first ball game, as you can see I made a little slide show for your viewing pleasure. The baby loved it, he just sat and watched the whole game. It was great.

So, about that low low the same morning. My mom called. She had just left the courthouse and my parents were officially divorced. I had no idea that they were this far along. I thought they had discussed it...hell they've been discussing it for a few years. But, it's a done deal now. It's really kind of weird though. It's like I don't know what to say to my dad now. See, he's my adoptive father, not biological. And I was 12 when that happened. I know my biological father and have a relationship with him, so I have a few issues to work out.

Anyway, the day ended on a high note though. When we got home from the game, my precious little man used his potty for the very first time. Here's a picture of it. If you didn't want to see it I'm sorry, but, this is where I post personal stuff. I didn't say it would all be pretty. At least I didn't put up a pic of the first use!!
He was very excited when it played the songs for him!!! Yeah, baby boy!!! You're growing up so fast!!!

Making things again...

I know the word 'doily' instantly makes you think of grandmas. At least it does for me. But I saw an idea on making beaded ones and I had to try it. The directions were not helpful at all so I just went at it on my own and mine was waaaayyyyyyy better than theirs! Way better!

See for yourself...

It is about 9 inches across and took total about 7 hours to make. I sent the pics to my mom and she already has a special order put in. I called my dad for Father's Day and she had already sent them to him. He said, Your mom sent me the pictures of the doily you made, that's nice. I was like " good Lord news travels fast!!!" She hadn't had the picture for 10 minutes before I called him and she had replied to me, forwarded it to him and he had opened it and called her. Technology!!!

update on previous post...

Okay, so I posted before about the word verification I got when commenting on another sight. This is too weird...try to follow me on this.

My friend (who's blog the original w/v was on) left a comment on said posting regarding the humor. So I was going to say something in return by commenting back on his blog. When I did, this is the w/v I got that time...

Are you pure? Is a higher power speaking to me? Somehow testing me? I say this light-heartedly...but one has to wonder, what's really going?
