i knew it would happen...
so...next weekend is our last free weekend for a couple of weeks since we will be in prattville for phillip's reunion, then in Enterprise and the beach for my reunion the next weekend...i knew that my sister would go into labor sometime before or during all our traveling...soooooooooooo...

mom just called and said they just admitted my sister into the hospital...gave her the first round of pain meds, called the doc in, she is 4 cm dilated and something about 70 percent effaced. on tuesday she will have been 36 weeks along...much better than going into labor back in january! i think those were the details...

so, it seems that this weekend was my last free weekend. i will probably be in atlanta next weekend to meet my neice, Melody Grace!

oh man i am so excited...

to put it simply...tomorrow is gonna be a long ass day.
gotta be at work by 7 am, and since tomorrow night at 7 is our big Pre-K graduation, i have to go ahead and do my hair and all that jazz before i leave the house since I probably won't have time to come home and do it all.
today was rain all day...usually we set up the day before, but was unable to. we defintely needed the rain, but i would have preferred it yesterday or saturday or sunday.

the vcr is set up for the big event...NKOTB's reunion on the today show!! yeaaaaaa!! i will watch it when i get home tomorrow or saturday morning!

I am very excited about meeting up with effy on saturday for lunch!! some yummy mexican and maybe a small margarita!! i get to pass off some clothes to her since I have either outgrown them or my taste have changed.
phillip said he might be able to leave work in time for us to catch some mexican dinner with mariachi...but i doubt it. boooooooo. maybe next time.

even though i dread tomorrow so much...something good comes out of it, we are losing about 20 kids. some are leaving for the summer and returning in the fall, some are going off to kindergarten, and some are just plain leaving. i don't care...this bunch this year has defintely tried my nerves and i will miss them i am sure afterwards, but right now...it is just time for them to go.

guess that is it...i have several things to post to my "What Makes Me Happy" post whenever i decide to do it, probably will be either on saturdays or sundays.

i am enjoying a drink right now while dinner finishes up...then get my stuff ready to take to work tomorrow and then watch some Lost!

phillip has to work next saturday. guess who returns to our mexican place? the mariachi band.
booooooooooooo. anyone wanna partake in some margaritas, mexican and mariachi!!??

i am currently cooking tacos and enjoying a glass...or bottle...of wine!

**and a side note, i am beyond excited about my "What makes me happy..." posts. I have found myself looking for things that make me happy and have already taken pics of a few things!**

I thought this was funny since it came from my grandparents...
The federal government is sending each and everyone of us a $600 rebate.

If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China .

If we spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs.

If we purchase a computer it will go to India .

If we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico , Honduras ,
and Guatemala.

If we purchase a good car it will go to Japan.

If we purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan ... and none of it will
help the American economy.

The only way to keep that money here at home is to buy prostitutes,
weed, beer, cigarettes, whiskey, and tattoos, since these are the only
products still produced in the USA .

Thank you for your help & please support the U.S.

They’re no longer kids, and the block they’ll be on is actually Rockefeller Plaza. But for the first time in 14 years, The New Kids On The Block will be reunited Friday on TODAY.

The band will return to TODAY on May 16 to perform their first live concert since 1994 as part of TODAY’s summer concert series on the Plaza.

The reunion comes 22 years after the band was formed in Boston and 20 years after the debut of their breakthrough album, “Hanging Tough,” rocketed Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood and Jordan and Jonathan Knight to stardom. Over the next six years, they sold more than 70 million albums and made hundreds of millions of dollars.

ugh. just an inflammed throat which causes a cough and sore throat...got a shot in my bootie and no prescriptions. all i ever want is the stupid shot anyways.

i did have to do something completely gross and uncalled for...
i have to stick a really long q-tip up my nose and swab the inside...

the lady handed it to me and said, "I'll let you swab it."
i was like, "swab what?"
she told me to stick it as far up my nose as i could and twist it around.
it tickled like hell and was so gross.

back to work tomorrow though.
7:03 am
be proud of me.

I have not written a resume since 2003.
Someone want to do one for me?
I pulled up my old resume...can't believe someone hired me off of it.
just wow.
it was not bad, just not well written.


I am bored...bored enough to actually work on my resume. but i am done working with it right now...you have to be in the right mindset to do some serious work, and right now, i feel like being lazy!

have a good week everyone.

American Idol
I have not watched much of idol, couple of singers here and there...but last week I caught this gem and man, I want her to win! Of course, I have not heard anyone else and I just watched her performance a few ago and it was not that great, but supposedly this is her first negative response to a performance.

cute idea, but dumb
Honey, will you marry... Oh. Never mind... Fri Mar 14, 10:48 AM ET

It is the one moment every man wants to get right -- and which London floor-fitter Lefkos Hajji could hardly have got more wrong.

The luckless 28 year-old's dreams of giving his sweetheart, Leanne, 26, the ultimate proposal have literally vanished into thin air.

Hajji, of Hackney, east London, had concealed a $12,000 engagement ring inside a helium balloon. The idea was that she would pop the balloon as he popped the question.

But as he left the shop, a gust of wind pulled the balloon from his hand and he watched the ring -- and quite possibly the affections of his girlfriend -- sailing away over the rooftops.

"I couldn't believe it," he told The Sun newspaper.

"I just watched as it went further and further into the air.

"I felt like such a plonker. It cost a fortune and I knew my girlfriend would kill me."

Hajji spent two hours in his car trying to chase and find the balloon, without success.

"I thought I would give Leanne a pin so I could literally pop the question," he said.

"But I had to tell her the story -- she went absolutely mad. Now she is refusing to speak to me until I get her a new ring."

He is hoping the ring will still turn up.

"It would be amazing if someone found it," he added.

So, Operation "Eat Everything in the House" is coming to an end.
today's lunch of champions...ham, tator tots and pizza rolls.
hehe...the freezer and fridge are nearly empty and tomorrow we can do a massive shopping event to restock our kitchen...gonna be expensive, but we saved by not being much last week...just bread and milk.

my body has been fighting some kind of illness over the past week...one day, aches and pains, the next day massive headache, the next day drainage from hell, and the next day coughing up a lung. don't know what it is, but i wish it would go away.

hehe, WINTER STORM part 2 hit us in the wee hours of the morning! the phone rang at 5:30 this morning, it was phillip's work calling him to come in and get video of wrecks and footage from ice covered bridges...i am telling you, the south goes nuts when there is even talk of snow! there was not even a quarter inch of snow on our yard, just enough to barely cover the grass...it was melted by 9 am.

we spent today doing some cleaning and again, we have stuff to donate..you would think that as much as we donate stuff, our house would be empty...but not, just a ton of stuff that we never use and probably never will use. and if it comes to the point where we would have needed it, guess we can buy one.

*sniff sniff* we lose an hour of sleep....
