PSA (public service announcement)

Do not throw a hissy fit

(no matter how justified it may be)

while carrying a glass of cranberry apple juice
while walking on light carpet

Do be grateful
for friends
you can call
(ok dear husband can call)

at 9:30 p.m. on a Sunday night
and ask to borrow their carpet cleaner

be willing to eat crow
when focus of alleged hissy fit
stays up past midnight
cleaning the carpet
even though he has to be up at 6 a.m.

a painful farewell

I'm in mouring.
i had to let a new friend go.

iT pains me
I'm having Withdrawals

the worst part is...I was duped

so that none of you experience the same TramA i'll share the depressig details

Last January Gary and I gave up all soda.
it wasn't as hard as I expected, except for the ice.
I lOVe good ice...you KnoW what I mean
sonic, sams, zaxby's

i adjusted..most places have lemonade, but sometimes I need a change.

then, sOnic introduced 1/2 pRice hAppY hr...oH, haPpy Day!
Cranberry slush
real fruit slushes
....life was gOOd!!!

....until yesterday....
when I made a necessary but tragic discovery on the SoNic website
a rt 44 cranberry slush has 616 calories (I could live with that occassionally) and
166 carbs!
You've got to be freakin' kiddin' me....

are they out of their minds!

just for comparison
a rt 44 coke has 371 calories and 101 carbs
a large tropical smoothie has 593 calories 146 carbs
a large chocolate malt has 844 calories and 144 carbs

there is no justice in this world.
I've switched over to dark chocolate
given up soda
don't keep chips, cookies, related junk in the house
don't eat fast food
and now...now they've taken away my last drive thru bright spot

....I can't talk about this anymore
....it's just too painful

My new motto is...you can't fight 'em so find the humor and share it!

Early this morning Will had to have an upper g. i.

It wasn't too bad but he didn't enjoy
the two glasses of barium
or "pop rock stuff".

We were driving home, his stomach killing him, telling us about
how "gross" (read cool) it was to see the inside of him and how weird it was/is to feel it moving through him.

Zac said something about farting.
To which Will replied: "I can't fart."
Yup, I fell for it...
"Why?", I ask
....wait for it....

"'cause I got junk in my trunk."

boys...ya just never know what's gonna come out.
(I so had to say it...forgive me)

hAlloWeEn...ya gotta love it!

Julie gets all the credit for my wonderful polka dot pumpkin.....
hers are cuter I have to admit...check them out.
2008 will be remembered as the year mom gave in and bought a mask...
We missed having our Mychel-Annie with us....
still makes me feel sad I don't have a picture of her...
first time in 18 year....
this growing up stuff is hard on parents!
