c'est la moux pas la choux.


Honey…..I’m Home! And the House is Bootifull!!


Got home Friday at about 3pm, had the most wonderful and relaxing time at me sissy’s house! 





She so loves her dindin!   She will kill me when she sees this!  Well you do love your cooking!  And so do I!  I gained like 15 lbs while I was there! 



We had a party for Chris’ oldest son, Nicholas.  Here is his birth mom, Terri.  The first time I met her.  We had such a good meal, and a great party.  Here is the birthday boy…..my NicNac…..now 26!  Not a little boy any more!




The birthday cake was sooooo freakin good, Chris’ daughter Em made it!  It was all colors inside….I don’t have that pic….but boy was it moist. 


Chris has been keeping you up on her “alien” story, so I won’t bore you with her details.  We had all that going on too, PLUS a bag of chips!  lol  yup we both have the sense of humor, hers is way better. 


Now  for my renovation pictures…if I don’t screw this up, I am going to try and post the before and afters.  So, here we go!

Going Home In A Few Days

Well, I will be flying out in a few days to go back home.  My time here will be done….sadly.  Butt….not without one last fling…..our fun time at the Emergency Room!  My oldest sister found a lump on her belly, just below her belly button.  So….my middle sister decided she should go get it checked out tonight.  So off we went….I am posting this from the ER.  Chris is off getting her CAT scan at the moment.  The Dr. thinks it may be a hernia.  I will keep you abreast of the situation.  We should know in just a few hours.  I will repost when we know. 


Our renovations to our house are almost complete.  My honey took pictures, but they came out a little blurry, so when I get home I will post new pictures that are better and clearer.  I promise.  So this is all for now.  I will post more later, my bloggy buds.  Please pray for my sissy.  Thanks. 


Made the Trip....Butt....

I made it here to my sister's house in one piece. The trip had no hitches, but I am sicker than a dog! Ickkk! It started on Monday. I thought it was allergies....so I just took my allergy meds and played it off. The night before my flight, I was achy and all that. I knew I was in big trouble. The last time I came here, in January, I drove, it took me 24 hours, i drove straight through....sick, with a fever....through a blizzard. I think this is a sign. Anyhoo, I trudged through the airport, dragging... doped on tylenol, sudephed, benedryl and ibuprofen all day long, alternating, of course. Feverishly winding my way to find my gates. When I got there, got on the plane, I was in the last seat always sitting in the back corner. This time, I was seated next to a large man, (I'm 5', 125 lbs) and he had lifted the arm that divides the seat between us, because he "overflowed" onto my seat. Unfortunately, I couldn't move, we were overbooked. Dang! It was only 1 1/2 hours, right? I could do this. I was pressed against the window....heaven forbid I had to get out in a hurry!

The next leg of my trip I was in the back the plane again, only it wasn't a big guy, it was a freaking cowboy wearing a ten gallon stetson! It started out ok, but he wanted to chat after awhile. He was nervous cuz he never flew before! Imagine that....but me having my "cold" or whatever, my ears were blocked and I couldn't hear. So I kept having to have him repeat himself. It wasn't till were about to land that he tells me he has Meniere's disease, which is fluid behind the ears or something like that. Makes him hard of hearing also. We were yelling at each other the whole flight!! LMAO!!! What a frikking nightmare this trip is. I was sick coming over and I have been sick since I have been here. It has been one thing after another. I have been here almost a week, and I am still hacking and coughing, achy and not feeling good. What a vacation!! I will post more later and keep you all updated....ehhhhh, was I not supposed to come out here? I was sick last time I came too!


Happy 4th of July and All that

Hey....it's been awhile....thought i'd better get on here and let you all know i was still alive and kickin. yup...still here. happy 4th of july and all that jazz! hope everyone had a good one. we had a quiet one getting ready for a major overhaul of our kitchen. we had to move all our living room stuff out...well dining room junk first, then living room, cuz we are relocating the dining room to the living area...then we are making a great room out of the old dining area....plus part of the old living room....then of course the kitchen makeover. well....i decided this would be a really good time to go visit my sister.

i didn't really mean to leave at this time. REALLY....i didn't. she just had some major medical crap done and i was soooo worried, i just had to go see her. they did a heart catherization thinking they may have to do by pass surgery....thankfully they didn't. but i was a nervous wreck. and being that she is me fave sissy....well, i had to go see her. so i begged me hunny. and he just couldn't tell me no. and the soonest i could leave was well, you guessed it....the week of destruction/renovations. so...i will be gone for 3 whole weeks and it will be all said and done when i return! darn....i won't be here for any of it...."sigh" i'm so sad, darn....can you tell? i'm really "sniff" sad about that....but someone has to go on vacation....dang it....so its gonna be me.

meanwhile....back at the ranch....hunny will hold down the fort with MIL and FIL and all will be well. I will go to my sisters' and see both of them. they will fight over me as usual. we will frolic in her pool....grill dindin whenever the urge hits....sleep in....look at old pictures like we used to......talk about family and remember them in all different kind of ways.....mostly just the one sister that does that, lol....eat good food that only we can make when we are together......enjoy this time verrrrry much cuz it will FLY by sooooo fast!!!!
