We had a wonderful Christmas. The weather in Ohio was beautiful for the most part. On our trip down we took what looked like a short cut and ended up only taking us 8 hours to get to Ohio. We were both very excited. On the way home we tried a different route and it ended up taking almost 12. So, we've decided which route we'll always take home :-)

While in Ohio we stayed with Jay's parents. They always welcome us and our furkids into their home, which is very nice. Our furkids all in one house can be quite overwhelming to people who do not have dogs. The kids love to visit also. They get stuffed full of treats and Carol always has found a receipt online and cooked them up some yummy stuff. This season I tried one of her doggie treats and it was the most horrible thing I have ever tasted. I almost gagged.

Anyway, We visited Camden Baptist Church for Christmas Eve. It's been a while since we've been to church since our move so it was very refreshing. Now that Jason is home permanently we plan on starting our church hunt. I'm really looking forward to it also. Afterwards it was off to Mom and Jacks for Jacks famous Pizza. Then it was off to Tina and Terrys for some cards and visiting. I'm not a cards player, unless it's Nerts, so I spent my time playing with Tyler, the coolest kid on earth :-) I beat him in Pool and was quite excited since I'm horrible at pool. Then again, when I think about it, he's 6. He's really good for a 6 year old too. Then we played Go Fish and Uno Go Fish. We had a great time. We got back to Jason's parents house around 1:00am. I had to wake Jason up so he could let us in. Stac spent the night with us too so that was fun.

Christmas day we spent the morning with Jay's family. We received tons of fun gifts. The one we both enjoyed the most was the baklava that we both received. What a wonderful gift since it's very cold here in PA and we both enjoying being out in it. No more freezing ears and faces. We headed to My family's house around 1:00 for the evening. We had a wonderful time. I decided this year would be a great time to start the family tradition of having an ice cream eating contest. Each participant would have to eat 1 pint of ice cream as fast as they can. Jay and I purchased the ice cream. Chocolate for Jack and then Blue Moo Cookie Dough for the rest of us. Rick had Peppermint Ice Cream though once he joined in. Jack, the cheater, tried to beat me by cutting out a huge portion of his ice cream. He did this by warming up the ice cream until it gently rolled out of the container. He cut off a huge portion of it. Then he placed the remaining ice cream back inside the container and put it back in the freezer upside down so it would go unnoticed. CHEATERS NEVER WIN JACKIE POO!!!! Anyway, so he ended up finishing first, go figure. I finished next, then it was Rick and then Daniel. Rick didn't start in until about 2 minutes after Jack and I began. Ahh, it was so much fun. Next year I'm keeping a good eye on the ice cream so JACK won't try to cheat. If he hadn't cheated I would have won. Although if Rick would have started when we did it would have been a close competition with me in the lead, Rick next and then Daniel. Jack would have finished last because I would have placed Ex Lax in his and he would have been somewhere else. He he he.

Here are some photos of our Christmas Ohio visit. Some are frightening but if you know my family you'd understand our humor.

More Funny Christmas Songs by Stacy. I don't know if you guys enjoy these as much as I do. On this series of songs I actually fell out of my chair laughing so hard. The dogs thought I was crying, which I was from laughing so hard. I Hope you enjoy. My sister is the best!

I saw mommy beat up Santa Claus
underneath the the mistletoe last night
she told me that that creep
was lookin in the window for a peep
he thought that we were tucked inside our beds fast asleep
Then I saw mommy kick him in the shin
and knee him in the chin
oh if the cops could have seen mommy beat up Santa Claus last night!

Over the river and through the woods
to Tonya's house we go
the horse went away, now mom pulls the sleigh
through the white and drifting snow
Over the river and through the woods
Oh listen to her groan
she gives a screech, she gives a moan
as over the ground we go.
Over the river and through the woods
when she's tired, she does sway
we give to her a voice of triumph
for it is Christmas Day!

Stacy the snowman
was a jolly happy soul
with a cuban cigar and a sloppin' nose
and two eyes that really glow
Stacy the snowman is a fairtytale they say
she is made of snow but the birdies know
how she came to life one day
There must have been some magic
in that old green thong they found
for when they placed it on her butt
she began to dance around
Stacy the snow man
cursed a lot that day
for the birds don't know a thong mixed with snow
makes for a crappy day
she ran through the village
while the thong still held on tight
she squeal and yelled
onto her broom she held
and whacked with all her might
Two little birdies, well they bit the dust that day
and it goes to show a thong mixed with snow
makes for a crappy day.

Go yell it from the mountain
over the hills and everywhere
go yell it from the mountain
that Stacy's pants have torn!
That day she was a'skatin'
on top the frosty ice
she went a little fast then
when she fell her pants did slice
Go yell it from the mountain
over the hills and everywhere
go yell it from the mountain
that Stacy's pants have torn!

Dashing through the snow
in a one horse open sleigh
over the fields we go
laughing all they way ha ha ha
Bells hooked on our skirts and the winds still kick them up
what fun it is to ride and sing while showing off our butt
oh jingle bells jingle bells jingle on our skirt
oh what fun it is to ride with nothing but a shirt
jingle bells jingle bells jingle on our skirt
oh what fun it is to ride with nothing but a shirt

Have a golly jolly Christmas it's the worst time of the year
I don't know how to drive in snow, so have another beer
Have a golly jolly Christmas and when you drive down the street
yell "Oh no" to friends you know before you crush their feet
Oh ho the driving snow falling on the frozen street
Someone jumps out of the way, apologies from me
Have a golly jolly Christmas and incase you didn't hear
Oh by golly have a golly jolly Christmas this year!

Jingle bell jingle bell jingle bell smock
associates ring and they also swing
working and smirking with bunches of fun
Now the walmart hop has begun
Jingle bell jingle bell jingle bell smock
security alarms chime cop action time
runnin' and gunnin' and throwin' a swear
in the frosty air!
What a bad time, it's a sad time
to curst the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
to go riding in a black and white sleigh
gitty up officer Bob, pick up your club
and beat him on top the head
kicks and tasers and the jingle of the beat
thats that jingle bell, that's the jingle bell
that's the jingle bell smock!

If Jason and I were ever to have kids I would want him to be like my little cousin Tyler. He is the coolest little kid ever and whenever I go home and visit I love to hang out with him and get into stuff.

Tyler - I hope the next time I'm home we can hang out together and maybe walk through the woods looking for stuff to kill. Wouldn't that be fun?

His First Kill of the Season

So sweet and innocent, right Tina?

I don't have much to post tonight because frankly all I did today was paint. Finally though our bedroom is complete, which leaves one more room. The kitchen and basement stairway. Ahh, I can finally see the end is near. Today I started on the kitchen though. I painted the ceiling. When I went in the bathroom after finishing up I couldn't help but laugh at all the paint on my face. So, I took a picture. I hope you enjoy :-) I've also attached a photo of the finished bedroom. Once I'm finished with the whole house I'll be sure to post the photos of all the rooms.

Many of you know I'm a huge Lynyrd Skynyrd Fan. I've been listening to WEBN Cincinnati every day while I paint. A few weeks ago a Skynyrd Parody came on and I about died. It was the best Parody ever. I tried to find the lyrics online and didn't have any luck. So, this parody is played a few times a day. I've been tuning in and when the song comes on I stop what I'm doing and write down a line of the song. Now I haven't gotten far but here's how is goes (picture is sung by a hick playing the banjo)

Can you play some Lynyrd Skynyrd please?
I will get down on my hands and knees
Can you play some Lynyrd Skynyrd please?
Maybe Three Steps or Call Me the Breeze
Come on Sir I know you can
Just play for me Simple Man
Their a simple band
They play Simple Man
Their a simple band
They play Simple Man
Can you play a Lynyrd Skynyrd Song
You can play Free Bird or Ain't too Long
Ol Skynyrd sounds don't sound the same

Ahh, once I've written down all the words I'll post it again. It's the best. I wish I could find it and download it.

Funny Songs by Stacy

deck the halls with lots of anger
la la la la la la la la la
tis the season to encourage danger
la la la la la la la la la
watch the neighbors as they trimble
la la la la la la la la la
pelt them with a rather large thimble
la la la la la la la la la
You're a mean one Mrs. T
you really are a turd
you're as charming as a leprechaun, as tasty as a curd, Mrs. T.
you're a dirty old lady with a squacking black bird!
You're a foul one, Mrs. T
I can smell through the phone
I cringe when I listen to you droan, Mrs. T
I wouldn't touch you with a thirty nine and a half foot pole!
I HAVE A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yippee. I'm proud to say I finally have a job. I had an interview today and they called me a few minutes ago to let me know they would like me to join their team. Woo Hoo. I will be working at Berwick Offray as a Sales Coordinator. Recognize the name? You should, Jason works their too :-) Although this could be weird working in the same office together we'll be in opposite ends of the building. Their is one bad thing about working at the same company as my husband, who happens to be the computer guru. No more GOOD MUSIC FRIDAYS! Darn it huh? Unless he gives me the ok :-) Tonight I am going to take myself to Applebees for dinner to celebrate. I sure wish my hubby dub dub was here to share this dinner/evening with me. That's ok though, he can just take me out to dinner to celebrate when he gets back in a few days. Did I say I finally have a job? Woo Hoo.

So what have I been up to the last few days? Well Jason came home over the weekend and spent a few days with me. I was sure to put him to work putting up shelves, hanging pictures and blinds. Sorry honey. I had to do it. So while he was here we didn't have any play time. No hiking, biking or exploring. That's ok though, we have plenty of time to do that. :-) On Monday I was up before the rooster crows to take Jason to the airport to head back to Memphis. I haven't been up that early in a LONG LONG time. It was still darn when I returned home too! Needless to say I hopped right back in bed and slept until around 9:00. At that time it was up and painting. Our bedroom is almost complete and that only leaves one more room to paint. The kitchen. Does it seem like I'm taking forever? Well I am. In between painting I take LOTS of time to jam to WEBN, play with the kids, and email my mom during the day. So, I'm not working all the time on painting. Another thing that has kept me busy is our yearly holiday newsletter. We send letters to almost 100 people. Imagine having to address and slap a stamp and lick all those envelopes. It takes forever. I have to stop every now again just to my tongue can get juicy again. I've already mailed a huge amount of newsletters already. I have like 12 more left to send.

Well I'm getting hungry so I better get ready to head to Applebees. I already know what I'm getting. I'm getting a big fat juicy steak. Ummm.

It's been a few days since I have written. With good reason though. Jason came home. Jeep and all. I was so excited to see him even though the poor guy had just been on the road for over 15 hours. Yikes. He was sure to call me through each state he drove through though. He called me in Maryland and then had me wait on the phone until the PA state line. I sure thought that was funny. Since he's been home I've been putting him to work doing stuff I couldn't do. So on Friday night Jason and I drove to Wilkes Barre to pickup some stuff he needed to complete the closet shelves and other things. We also picked up our paint for our bedroom. We've decided to go with the red color we used in our old house. I think it will look really nice. After that we drove to Buckhorn to go to Quaker Steak and Lube. One of our favorite places to eat. We tried the Burger with hot sauce and man, it was awesome. So the next day it was work time for Jason. He worked on the closet and other things while I worked on getting the spare bedroom ready for Stacy. I'm getting so excited she's coming.

Today we woke up early and headed to the lake for a 2 mile hike. Kenzie was able to come with us. The lake is so beautiful and it's such a fun walk. While walking through the wooded part of it the trail would go away at some points. It was perfectly fine, we knew we couldn't get lost since we were walking around the whole lake :-) We even made it to a marshy area full of mud and stuff that we had to walk through. I'm a fan of getting muddy so this was fun. Luckily I had on my snow/hiking boots so my feet didn't get wet at all. :-) Ahh, mud, so much fun.

So now we're heading out to go antiquing. It should be tons of fun. We're hoping to find some stuff for our house. I'll be sure to write more later after the weekend is over.

Oh, by the way. Crazy Carie sent me an email the other day that had me rolling and crying. I've decided to post it for others to enjoy. She told me that since it was for the disturbed she naturally thought of me. Crazy Carie I think knows me all too well. The Christmas Carols listed below, really only one really describes me.

Merry Christmas to me! So I've been talking about my Christmas gift but I've failed to send a photo. Once Jason get's here I'll have to take a photo of the kids going through them. Might I add what a lovely day it is today?

Today I've been taking it very easy. My back is really hurting from working in the flower beds yesterday. If you knew exactly how much I removed from the flower beds you would understand what a huge chore that is. So, I've mostly been hanging with the kids. We went downstairs and watched a little bit of Pirates. Then I received a call from a lady that set up an interview with me for tomorrow at 12:15. Since I wasn't too sure where the place was I went out to find it so I would ensure I wouldn't be late tomorrow. The place has an awesome view. It sits at the top of the mountain and you can see other mountains in the distance. It's basically a dump, I mean that for real :-) It's a trash service. The dump isn't their but their trucks and other stuff is. So everyone please be sure to pray for me.

I have to tell you, last night I got in the mood to watch my Lynyrd Skynyrd DVD. It's been way too long. I had a huge smile on my face and sat and sang through the whole thing. One of the songs I got emotional on. It's Red, White and Blue. It's an awesome song/video and I think all of us seem to forget about those brave men and women fighting for our freedom as we speak. Everyone please be sure to say a prayer for these troops each and every day. Here's the lyrics just in case you haven't heard the song.

Artist: Lynyrd Skynyrd Lyrics

We don't have no plastic L.A. Frynds,
ain't on the edge of no popular trend.
Ain't never seen the inside of that magazine GQ.
We don't care if you 're a lawyer, or a texas oil man,
or some waitress busting ass in some liquor stand.
If you got Soul
We hang out with people just like you

My hair's turning white,
my neck's always been red,
my collar's still blue,
we've always been here
just trying to sing the truth to you.
Yes you could say
we've always been,
Red, White, and Blue

Ride our own bikes To Sturgis
we pay our own dues,
smoking camels, drinking domestic BREWS
You want to know where I have been
just look at my hands
Yeah, I've driven by the White House,
Spent some time in jail.
Momma cried but she still wouldn't pay my bail.
I ain't been no angel,
But even God, he understands.

My hair's turning white,
my neck's always been red,
my collar's still blue,
we've always been here
just trying to sing the truth to you.
Yes you could say
we've always been,
Red, White, and Blue

Yeah that's right!

My Daddy worked hard, and so have I,
paid our taxes and gave our lives
to serve this great country
so what are they complaining about

Yeah we love our families, we love our kids
you know it is love that makes us all so rich
That's where were at,
If they don't like it they can just
get the HELL out!


My hair's turning white,
my neck's always been red,
my collar's still blue,
we've always been here
just trying to sing the truth to you.
Yes you could say
we've always been,
Red, White, and Blue

It's almost 2 and I'm already exhausted from working today. You ask, what have I been doing? Take one guess......Well besides painting I've also been working in the flower beds. Yes, it's winter and I'm working in the flower beds but their is a reason why. Lately the kids have been throwing up a lot. When I go outside I've been noticing that they are digging and eating stuff in the flower beds. So, since it was nice out today I decided it's time to clear them out of all the mulch and other stuff. Man, what a lot of work. I have like 10 - 12 bags full of mulch that will be heading to the trash. My back hurts from bending over but I still have more work to do so I'm going to suck it up and get to work. Well, after I post on my blog :-)

When I came in from the yard I was covered in mud. Which shouldn't surprise anyone. I seem to always have mud or something all over me. I'm such a tomboy. I also had a few band aids on my fingers where I took off some flesh on some of the rocks. Yumm, I'm sure some of you are going, eww, too much information. Anyway, I also had tons of mud caked under my fingernails. Since my back hurts I didn't want to get up and look for the fingernail clippers so I took the box cutting knife and used it as my finger nail cleaner. More tomboy things to do.

I'm only going to work a few more hours and then I'm going to spend the rest of the evening on the couch with the kids watching TV. They have so much fun laying around the house with their mommy!

On Friday I drove down to Middletown and visited with the Univar facility. Before I left Univar their was talk that maybe I could work out of my house when I moved as a buyer for the Harrisburg facility. So, on Friday I visited with Jeff Moran. I also met with the General Manager and another guy I can't remember his title. They all wished I was closer because they said they would hire me right away since I have 3 years experience with the company already. They said that maybe in a few months something would come up and I could work out of my house as a telesales position but the telesales position has not been approved yet by the GM. He is meeting with a company where I live next week and he's going to take my resume and highly recommend me to this company. So, maybe something will happen. I'm really in no hurry, besides being bored, I want to be sure I find a position that I really like. After my meeting with Univar I picked up Jason at the Harrisburg International Airport. What a podunk little airport. I actually laughed when I pulled in. Afterwards it was off to McClure to pickup my Christmas gift from Jason. I asked him for some weave poles from Mad Agility here in PA. First off, it took us FOREVER to find their house. The directions off Yahoo we're misleading. Not to mention that a lot of the backroads around here are not marked. So, after 2 hours on a 1 hour trip we FINALLY arrived. The people that make the equipment are very nice. They invited us in and showed us all their equipment they make. They also showed us their house remodeling and we talked for a while about our dogs and agility. They are going to supply the ring equipment for the AKC Agility Nationals in Columbus next year. Each year the manufacturers of the equipment place a bid and then 3 manufacturers are chosen to supply the equipment at Nationals. So, they are both really excited to be given this opportunity. Here's the website for their equipment for all my agility buds.

That evening we ate at my favorite place and then headed to Wilkes Barre to get some winter gear. Since winter is quickly approaching I knew I needed to get some snow boots and base layer to use while hiking and walking around the area. So, we both purchased our base layers and I purchased some boots for myself. So, about the boots. They have this "Fur" on the top that's really girly looking and frilly. I hated to even buy something with girly fur on it however the boots were amazingly warm and comfortable. So, I got them. We then went to Bed Bath and Beyond and purchased a feather bed for our mattress. We decided to do this instead of buy another mattress because we honestly couldn't find a mattress we really liked for the money. We also got a down comfortable since we really do not have a comfortable comforter. Merry Christmas to us.

On Saturday we got up around 8:30 and headed to the Delaware Water Gap to hike a section of the AT. The hike was really nice and it was so beautiful outside. We didn't want to stay long so we just hiked a few miles. Good Ol' Kenzie was able to go with us and had a wonderful time herself. Here are some photos of cute Kenzie posing for us.

So I couldn't go on with my day without posting this. My question is, how did she board with the match?

Flatulence forces emergency landing

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - It is considered polite to light a match after passing gas. But not while on a plane.

An American Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing Monday morning after a passenger lit a match to disguise the scent of flatulence, authorities said.

The Dallas-bound flight was diverted to Nashville after several passengers reported smelling burning sulfur from the matches, said Lynne Lowrance, spokeswoman for the Nashville International Airport Authority. All 99 passengers and five crew members were taken off and screened while the plane was searched and luggage was screened.

I'm a SUPERSTAR! Last night I watched Superstar. What a funny movie. Here are some of my favorite quotes. Please, this is rated R, Ha, just kidding.

"Sometimes when I get nervous I stick my hands under my arms and I smell them like this"

"I have to be a little honest with you. Your intense energy is making me feel a bit bombarded"

"Thomas, Stop pretending your high on drugs. It's a sin even pretending"

Here's a little Superstar trivia.

What car is the only car you see parked and driving throughout the movie? (answer at the end of this blog)

So yesterday is also snowed. It was so beautiful. It was spitting large flakes and didn't even stick on the ground but it was still beautiful. I took some photos. You have to click on the photo and view it larger to actually see the snow :-) It was so pretty though. The furkids went wild. Kenzie just loves the snow.
Today I woke up at my usual time, 9:00am. Since I finished painting the office I started working on putting it together. After a while I went to Walmart and returned some things. I also picked up some shelving that we're going to use in the office closet. I don't like things sitting out because then they collect dust and I HATE to dust. he he he. While I was out I received a call from a lady in Memphis from Helena Chemical. She heard I was looking for a job. She told me they are not doing any hiring right now but will keep me in mind for the future. She also said she talked to their branch here and they gave her a staffing agency to go to for employment. Now this staffing service isn't even listed anywhere so I had never heard of it. She gave me directions and everything. That was so nice. I also received a email from Jason's employer asking for my resume. They have a Customer Service Position available. Hopefully something will happen soon. I'm about to die of boredom. You know, at least I'm able to work on the house though. That's one very nice thing. Then I came home. Loaded up the Jeep with tons of trash from unpacking boxes and drove them to the end of the driveway. Now, I'm sitting here typing and listening to WEBN Cincinnati. I promise, I'm hooked. It's so nice being able to listen to it every day though.

Speaking of radio stations. Since I'm home all day long, every day I've been listening to WEBN all day long while I'm working around the house. I strongly think that radio stations play the same songs every day in the same order. I heard the song I posted the other day again, actually twice today. Ozzy, ACDC, Soundgarden, 3 Days Grace, Godsmack, Disturbed, I hear them all day long. Same songs too!

Ok, ok. So, on another note. I was reading the online newspaper today and here's the funny headline. This should tell you how small our town is for this to make headlines.

Lawn display 'joke' draws complaints
'It doesn't look good'
The town has gotten complaints about a holiday lawn display along East Fifth Street featuring two lighted reindeer that appear to be mating.

You should see the photo. I tried to copy and paste it but it wouldn't let me.

Anyway, I'm signing off for tonight. Here's the answer to the movie trivia. The answer is a Lime Green VW Bug. It's the only car you see driving and parked in the movie. Sometimes several will drive by at the same time. Watch it, it's funny.

Christmas Songs/Poems
Submitted my Stacy Martin (my sis)

Silent fight, mute the night
all has falln' with the light
round young surgeon, death and life
cut that organ with a knife
sleep assisted with drugs is peace
sleep with drugs is peace

OH, you better watch out
you better not cry
you better not spit, I'm telling you why,
Stacy Clause is coming to town
She's wearing a suit, that's way too big
if you ask, she might do a jig
Stacy Clause is coming to town
She stalks you when you're sleeping
she calls when your awake
She bust your windows, enter your house
and pelt you with a rake
so, you better watch out, you better not cry
better not alert the cops, I"m telling you why
Stacy Clause is coming to town

Oh silly pea
Oh silly pea
how little is your surface
Oh silly pea
Oh silly pea
how little is your surface
You taste so good in my mouth
As you begin your descent south
Oh silly pea
Oh silly pea
how little is your surface
Joy to the world
your dads a bum
lets kick him in the tush
and watch him land
outside in the snow
and laugh until it hurts
and laugh until it hurts
and laugh, and laugh until it hurts
He'll cry about
how much pain he's in
but we won't give a hoot
'cause last Christmas
he threw at us
poo onto our door
some poo onto our door
Some poo, oh poo onto our door

Stacy the two legged reindeer
had a very funny walk
and if you think thats amusing
you should even hear her talk
all of the other misfits
used to trip her with a rope
they never told her straight, but
they laced her favorite cake with dope
Then one foggy Christmas eve
Tonya came to say
Stacy, you two legged dork
Why don't you grow wings and be a stork
Then all the other misfits
squeezed with all they hope they had
For Stacy the two legged reindeer
had perty wings and she was glad.

Its just one of those days
When you don't wanna wake up
Everything is nuts
Everybody sucks
You don't really know why
But want justify
Rippin' someone's head off
No human contact
And if you interact
Your life is on contract
Your best bet is to stay away
It's just one of those days!!

Actually, I'm having a fabulous day. I posted the lyrics to that song because I just heard it and I think it's funny. Every now and then everyone has one of those days though and that's why I laughed. :-)

Let's see. I woke up at 9:00 which is now my usual wake up time. I started painting, imagine that :-) After coming out of the closet (he he he, I was painting the closet today) I decided that I was tired of painting and needed a day off. I received a call from the PA license place telling me I could get my tags so I decided to head into town for lunch and then get my tags. I went to my favorite pizza place Original Italian Pizza and had a Stromboli. I have to say, I'm a pizza lover and this place is AWESOME! My Stromboli was WONDERFUL and I kept telling the wait staff and the people that prepared it how awesome it was. It was filled with Motz cheese, steak, tomatoes and mushrooms. Ummm, when they brought it to me it was huge however when I started to eat it I just couldn't stop. I'm totally going to get it again. Now I hate onions but they sauteed the steak in onions and umm, it was sooo good.

Ok enough about the food. So I then headed over to the license place. Now I'm going to give you some words of advice when relocating to a different state
1. You have to have your drivers license before you can register your vehicle (check one)
2. You have to have proof of insurance (check two)
3. If you have a lean on the vehicle and it's in both names both people have to be present when you get your license (whoops, no husband)

Anyway, needless to say I didn't get my tags. I told her I was going to try to get them this weekend when Jay is in town but he also has to have a valid PA license when I get my tags. The license place is only open on Thursdays, so, we're out. I asked her how many days I have to register my vehicle in PA and she said 30 days. I told her next week I will have lived here 30 days and Jay isn't going to be home by then. I told her if I happen to get pulled over for something and I'm not registered would I get a ticket. She said "no" but honestly, I don't believe her. So, no reckless driving for me until I can get registered. Then I'm free to drive as recklessly as I want. Ha, just kidding.

So, I came home and decided to take Tay and Chase to the lake for a run/hike. Hopefully it would get Tay's mind off how much she misses her daddy. Anyway, boy was it cold. I couldn't find my hat so I was in trouble. My ears are frozen. I wanted to take photos so I kept my gloves off. Harry, my hands are freezing. Here, you can have one of my extra pair of gloves. You mean you've had an extra pair of gloves this whole time? Ahh, sorry, just quoting Dumb and Dumber. Anyway, not only was it cold but it was muddy. My poor shoes are covered. The kids had a wonderful time running through the tall grass. I've uploaded photos for you to view. Hope you enjoy.

Taylor, you can't catch me

Ha, you still haven't caught me you slow dog

Ok, so this is a photo of the mountain we live on. If you can see the black circle that house is a few houses down from me. The arrow is right about where we live :-)

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I know some are traveling and I hope she'll post on her blog some photos of her trip. She shall rename nameless :-)

I've spent the weekend doing nothing but.....painting. Ahh, my life. I guess I should become a professional painter. It wouldn't be that bad if everything was nice and clean and not an ugly color or scratched all too bits. The joys of home ownership. I'm happy to report though that the hallway and the living room are finally complete. After days and days of painting, trimming and whining about how bad my back hurts the rooms are done and look very nice may I add. I would post photos however the pictures are not hung on the walls yet. Jason will have to do that. I have scoliosis and everything I hang is always uneven. It's wild too. I go through the house and level things how I think they should be level and Jay runs behind and straightens them up. It's honestly hilarious to see.

We had a horrible storm that came through yesterday. I know some other areas had the same sort of storm but the winds, they reported, got up to 70 MPH. I was talking to my aunt Shirley on the phone inviting her to the family reunion in PA in July and I had to cut the phone call short because the wind had blown our canoe over and it was moving down the hill. Our driveway is steep and our canoe is 80 lbs. I knew if I didn't go and catch it right then it would either fly into the home at the bottom of the hill or it would just go down the hill and I wouldn't be able to get it back up. So I went outside, turned it back over and went back into the garage. The wind blew it right back over and it started down the hill again. I then got the keys to the Jeep, moved it out and the canoe in for the night. The next morning I get the news and see all the damage to the area. Thousands without power and 2 million dollars worth of damage to the area. I was very fortunate not to have any damage to our house.

So Sunday I had planned on going to church but I really didn't want to go by myself. I felt the church hunting should be done together. So, I stayed home and started trimming the office. I'm the type of person that starts a project and then lets it sit for a while as I start a new one. With that said, I decided I wanted to paint first instead of trim. So I started to paint. As I got higher on the wall I realized I had forgotten to Spackle the holes in the wall. So, I painted only 1/2 way up the wall and left if. I told Jason about it and then laughed. Tomorrow I'm going to finish rolling the wall and then tomorrow afternoon I'll start on the trim.

I also put the tree up in the house and got out some of the Christmas decor. Some of the decorations are buried in our garage and won't be able to make it out this holiday season. Since the tree was up and the shelties looks adorable I figured I would take a Sheltie Sisters Holiday Photo. I knew I could get them to sit for a split second but I knew it would be tough to get all 5 to sit. That will come later when we take our holiday photo for our newsletter. Anyway, here it is. The 2006 Christmas Holiday Sheltie Sister Photo. Poor Tay misses her Daddy.

Happy Friday Everyone!

So it's been a while since I've written. A lot has happened to keep me busy. First off, I HATE PAINTING! My back hurts, my shoulder hurts, I'm taking a break. The upstairs living room and hallways isn't finished but I have time :-)

Secondly, Most of you know I'm not a huge fan of Memphis. Anyway, yesterday Jason was in a car accident. 7 car accident actually. Since I'm so far away I was really scared/worried for him. Here's the scoop. He was driving down Winchester to get something to eat. A guy was stalled in his lane, actually he later found out that guy had just hit someone. Anyway, so the guy in front of Jason slammed on his breaks. Jason then slammed on his breaks, then the lady behind Jason hit Jason and then pushed him into the guy in front of him. Now for the funny part, a guy in the other lane slowed down to see the accident and ended up getting rear ended himself. When I talked to Jay his first words were "Only in a Jeep" turns out the other cars we're banged up really bad and all his Jeep had was a few scratches. He's still going to have it looked at to make sure nothing underneith was damaged but so far it looks good :-) I thank GOD he took care of Jay.

Today I got up and took Kenzie for a walk after dog doo doody (hehehe). It's really warm outside today. That's all going to change tomorrow though. It's suppose to snow for the next 10 days and be in the 30's as the high. Winter is coming and I'm very very excited. Jason has never been skiing so I'm looking forward to taking him :-)

The furkids are crazy. They are so bored and into everything. I have no idea why they are bored though. They stay out all day long running around and playing.

Ok, so I have 2 friends that I was reconnected with on My Space. I was going through my old Senior Book and found some quotes and other things. Reading back on the quotes I was laughing histerically so I figured I would share with everyone. :-) Abs/Shae, good times, good times.
