Everyone leave! Get out now!

Okay, summer school is almost over. Hooray! I'd say that I'm looking forward to sleeping in for a while, but it won't be happening anytime soon. Aaron and I are going on vacation, and then we have a family reunion. What is it about vacations anyway? You're never rested when you get back. Everyone knows you need to stay home at least a couple of days before going back to work to have a vacation from your vacation. I am lucky in the fact that I will NOT be going back to work immediately. Aaron, however, does! I'm sure I'll just feel terrible when he's having to get up at 6. Since I've been getting up all summer though, I'll probably end up waking up every day at 7. Then Kelli will want to go ahead and work out....which we should. Then I'll just be tired and want to take a nap. Naps are OUT! Aaron's mom is coming at the end of July, and the house MUST be ready by then. No boxes! No dirt in the garage! All rooms painted! I'm sure it will happen, but I'll have to work like a crazy person to get it done. Good thing I have time off! Ha ha!

So disappointing!

When some people get mad, they curse. When other's get mad, they hit things. When I get mad, I turn all kinds of shades of red. Now, this is only when I get REALLY mad about something, and yesterday was that day. Some stuff happened at school, and it doesn't really matter to anyone. However, I have a point to make. WHAT IN THE WORLD IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE???! It seems that there are some people in this world that really are only looking out for number one. Other people don't really seem to matter. We see this in our everyday lives. These are the people that cut you off on the interstate because where they're going is obviously more important than where you're going. These people talk trash about you when you are under the impression that you're friends. These people don't care who they leave dead and bloodied along the way. I'm just wondering what happened to make these people like that. Also, I wonder how I always seem to be surprised when they do something to me personally. I tend to think that people are basically good, and you really have to do a lot for me to change my opinion. I generally have to take it as a personal attack, and even then I tend to give them the benefit of the doubt. Of course, after all the junk that happened yesterday, I was pretty mad at the world. Then I went to eat and to the movie The Lakehouse with Kelli, Becky, and Chrystal(super best friends), and then the world was all right again. I'm so glad that God may let you see the bad, but then he throws so much goodness your way that it's all okay again. Today is a new day. What will you do with yours???????

I'm starting to realize that most people simply cannot commit to anything. Why this is bothering me today....I don't know! I am in a bunko....bunco...group...whatever! We've played for like 3 months, and people are dropping like flies. Now come on people... Can we really not even stop one night and have a night of FUN? Is that just too much to ask? The problem here is commitment. When it's a big thing(like marriage), people treat it like it's a big deal. If they consider it to be a little thing, then they don't care. I figure a commitment is a commitment. If you say you're doing something, then do it. Even if it's a "little thing", you inconvenience others when you don't do what you say you're going to do. Who needs that?

Stepping off my soapbox.......

Stupid Mavericks!!!

Growing up with a dad that coached basketball was always interesting. I got to see more games than most people see in a lifetime, so I have SOME experience with b-ball. Having said that....I'm more than a little bit disappointed in the Dallas Mavericks. They had a 2-0 lead. They were playing well. People weren't doing stupid middle school stuff. That all changed in game 3. Since then they've been terrible. They're running around out there like they don't even know what a play is. Their shooting is pretty bad, and they can't seem to score when it really counts. For example, Josh Howard missing 2!!! free throws at the end of the game....and then proceeding to call timeout when he wasn't supposed to. Ugh! Anyway, I'm no fairweather fan, but I'm still disgusted. Mavericks, pull it together. You kept me up until almost midnight for NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She's finally here!!!!

I know that God is on my side!!! The proof is in the pudding, as they(whoever "they" are) say. My husband is totally allergic to cats. Anytime he ever goes to my parents or my sister's, he gets all sneezy. His nose gets red, and his eyes swell up. If you're picturing this, it's NOT a pretty thing. Anyway....I digress. My cat Puck has been living with my parental units since Aaron and I got married nearly a year ago. I've been pretty depressed about it, but what can you do? We didn't want to pay for a pet deposit, and I hated having my honey all sneezy and such(see above picturing example again...not a pretty thing). But since we moved into our house, I've been working on Aaron to let me have her. Since we've been painting and texturing....blah, blah, blah, I didn't think Puck would like it. But I finally had enough, and now she's here. So what if she's just sitting under the bed about 23 1/2 hours a day. So what if she's scared of her own shadow. So what if the paint fumes are making her high. She's HERE!!! Hooray!!!!!!!!!! Here's the reason I know that God is on my side..... Aaron is just fine. No sneezing. No runny, red eyes. Nothing! Yea God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I prayed about it, and there it is. Now some of you may not think it's a big deal or a big prayer, but I LOVE my cat. I've had her since she was a kitten. I picked her out at a shelter. Yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All you cat haters beware!!! God loves cats. :o)

I've got the....summer school blues....

Yep, I know that I'm crazy. I just can't sit at home and enjoy any time off. It's necessary for me to completely fill my days so that I don't go out and shop or eat lunch with EVERYONE I've ever known. Because we don't quite have the money for that, I'm teaching summer school. It wouldn't be that big of a deal except I got ALL my kids back. It's nuts. Of course, I really shouldn't complain since I'm only there half a day for 20 days. I think I probably should have called my blog "The Whiner's Journal". :o) On to better things....

Our house is finally coming together. We have completely finished the kitchen and back living room...with the exception of me painting all the baseboards. I did the finishing touches on the doorway trim today, and Aaron got the pantry door hung. It looks great. Plus, the Comcast guy came today.....and we finally have CABLE!!!! It's been so long. We don't really watch that much tv, but I LOVE TLC and the sci fi channel. All geeks unite!! I used to watch Stargate SG1 every single Monday night. We'll see when it comes on now. Ha ha ha ha! We've also done the bathroom in the master bedroom, and the master bedroom is pretty much done. I also did doorway trim in there as well. It kind of smells, but it sure looks pretty. Next on our list is the hall and all the other closets in the house to get stuff out of the floor already.

My birthday wasn't too long ago, so my three super best friends(Becky, Chrystal and Kelli) and I all went to celebrate. Kelli just had her birthday too. Plus Chrystal's is on the way.... I'm terrible at remembering birthdays, but you girls KNOW I love you. It was so fun. I ate way too much and felt fat and sassy!!!!! The Tapas was exceptional and who can resist La Madeleine dessert. Yummy!!!! So fun. BFF!!! Love it!!!!

Onward and upward.......
