The military does voice an opinion....I  saw this on another blog and had to grin.  I wonder how long it will take for the mainstreet manic Obama-facination to wane.

Notice who Obama pays attention to at the end of his speech....is it the average everyday working joe he claims to support?

My friend posted this on her blog early this morning. Edited to remove names.

My 7 year old daughter and I were talking to my husband (in Iraq) via an Internet phone connection. Suddenly we hear a crash and a lot of weird (for lack of a better word) noise coming from him. After not being able to get him to respond, I panicked. I called my friend whose husband works very near to him and she was able to call her husband and ask to have someone run over and check on him. The connection was still...

So once again I am inundated with emails and rumors (thanks Dad. *NOT BFD, my actual one) that (shock, gasp) Barnes and Noble is an EVIL, SCARY BAD company that allowed a GAY PORN book to be left on a table repeatedly and (gasp, horror) be seen by a child!

Okay, sarcasm aside, I would be irritated and be inclined NOT to frequent a store with that particular issue, but as a patron of B&N for many years....I'm suspicious already. Beware, here comes...

Texas Wahine is back in Texas but unfortunately, on the opposite side of town from me.  So after a few encounters when they moved in, we haven't been able to see each other.


But wouldn't you know it?  I got sick of my lame-o school and requested a transfer for Connor.  He made it to the school I hoped for!  Then it occured to me, Brandie is over on that side of town....

Turns out that she lives by the school and her kids go to the same school!  I guess ...

I MEANT to take a shower after going to the gym. 

I was even in a robe, moments from turning the water on.


But the phone rang.


And I got distracted.


I didn't take my shower.

I didn't work on processing prints.

I didn't clean.

I didn't return any phone calls.

I didn't fold the clothes.


I played on the computer and updated my Photography blog.  I had a plain and simple black template that was supposed to be minimalistic.....

I haven't blogged here in a while.  Free Ice Cream is great and I love having it, but it just isn't my favorite flavor anymore.  I have a bunch of RSS feeds, so I can still see what's going on here. I've had issues with Firefox and Joe getting along and I'm just not cool enough to understand it.  I'll still stop by, but if you want more updates on my life...feel free to check me out on myspace  (rarely updated) or my blogger account which I love 'cause it's linked to my ...

I love pictures of my kids.  I love having pictures displayed on my walls, on my computer and in my wallet.  I love to see the ones I love and remember moments I loved as I look at pictures. 

I wanted "good" pictures and didn't feel like my meesly efforts were worth hanging up.  So I dutifully went to a studio and handed over money.....But I hate paying the overcharged prices for subpar pictures at overcrowded studios where after my kids have waited so long they are overti...

Hyperborean Wanderer wasn't impressed but I've wanted to try to do this shot for a long time and I finally got my shot on Sat.  I've been begging all the pregnant chicks in Texas to let me try it and my friend Leila's boy was the first to arrive!  (3 weeks early too!) Woo Hoo! 

I love how it turned out but I can already see where I can improve it....so someone else needs to have a baby!

My daughter has the overwhelming urge to eat my food.  Specifically, my oatmeal.


It seems as though every time I make oatmeal,no matter how many servings I make....she is begging for more and ends up eating my breakfast.  I swear, it happens all the time.  I've even made 4 servings so there would be lots extra....but to no avail.  She still will eat until it is all gone.

Eating mine before they wake up is a guarenteed way to ensure that both kids hate the sigh...

Back story....

1)Today is a big unit function that is so we can celebrate the great, wonderful support that this group gave our soldiers while they were in Iraq. It starts before the kids get out of school, so I have to pick boy up early.

2) Last night, after Boy's Parent Teacher Conference (yeah, he's doing great.) the electrical system on the van went all wonky.  The lights and blinkers didn't' work.  The sliding doors wouldn't open.  Grr.  So we headed over to the Ho...

So Trapeze started today.


I was so so incredibly excited.


Until now.


The first time I flew, I could feel my handgrips slipping, so I took them off and just chalked my hands.  I felt my hands abrading already, so I used tape to make better grips....and it didnt' help.  I tore the heck out of my hands today.  It was so bad that I couldn't even finish the class.  I gave up my last 3 spots to another girl who was doing great.

Just a few more pictures....I felt that I should stick one of the boy up so people don't start to wonder what happened to him!

I really need to work on paying attention to the light more!
