Down for the count..

not for long though, even with this stupid migraine which hit me on Friday. I still did the garage sale but not happily. Nothing better than having it and being sensitive to noises, smells and the light and having to sit in the driveway with no shade and my eyes tearing up and having to look all happy to be there and smile at everyone that stops by to see what junk you are getting rid of.

Chris managed most of the money and questions while I just sat and pretended like I was there for a reason. We started about 8 and ended at 11 because the heat was too much. After making lunch, I went and laid down and surprisingly I went right to sleep. I only slept about 4 hours the previous night because my head just would not stop hurting. Chris woke me up a few times to see how I was feeling only to be told to go away. He gave me a pain pill and about an hour later the migraine dulled to a tolerable headache. It didn't last long, maybe 5 hours because as I type this I feel it coming back.

Tomorrow we will have the garage sale again and anything left behind will go to Goodwill. So I hope tomorrow is better.

Puppies are doing great. Getting back their energy and playfulness. They finished off the last of their medicines today as well. Right now Bentley is sleeping in his bed and Reese is cuddled up against Scooter (both of them are snoring)

Ok... I am off for now.

All is well...

on the home front. Bentley and Reese did real well. Bentley is coming out of it better though. He ate some yesterday and was more aware then Reese. I figure it will take her a while longer to recover since her surgery was more in depth. We have medicines for them to take twice a day to make sure they heal well. One is a sedative so they won't get too hyper and make sure they do not overdo things. Right now they are both at my feet sleeping:) Scooter has been like a mother hen with them. She will go inside their cage area ( we have one side of our kitchen caged off for them) and make sure they are ok and every once in a while she will lick them. Which is unusual for her. She normally just stays out of their way. I stayed up real late last night to make sure they were going to be ok. I don't know why but I just really needed to make sure.

We are gearing up for a garage sale this weekend. It's funny though, one side of our garage is filled with furniture and stuff and we are hoping to get rid of all it just to have it fill back up again with my parents stuff... well whatever does not need to be in a climate controlled unit that is. Chris is excited because we will have my dads motorcycle. haha... and most of his Craftsman tools etc... Men and their toys. I have been talking with my parents a couple times a week to get more details and I am anxious for them to get here already.

Well.. I gotta go. Need to give the puppies their meds.

Today is the day..

Reese and Bentley are already at the vets. Not sure when they will be done. Could be as early as 1pm or as late as 5pm.
We did give them their baths last night but I wasn't able to clip them because the clippers were not working.. aggravating. At least they are clean:)

They knew something was up when they did not get fed this morning. Katie and I loaded them up into the car, drove them to Chris' mom so she could take them to the vets. I figured if she does it they won't be mad at me later. My mom told me when they took their "Peanut" to have her surgery, she would not look at my dad for a few days.

Other than that my family and I have chilled out the last few days. Chris actually played an online game called Dofus and he was able to play with his best friend, Phil who happens to be in London attending college for developing games. So they chatted and played online for a good 8 hours on Sunday.

Jeff has been picking up extra hours at work and in his spare time he has been going to the mall and hanging out with friends. He needs to get a grasp on informing his dad and I about his plans earlier rather than last minute. That is one of our biggest problems with him. He neglects to tell us until the 11th hour!

Katie is growing like a weed! She is going to be a tall girl. We bought clothes about 2 months ago, they are not even worn looking and already they are too small. We will have take her shopping this weekend to get her more shorts/jeans. Her shirts still fit but her pants are to tight and short. And so far no more incidents at Camp. I think they fired that counselor, or maybe they moved her somewhere else. I haven't seen her and when I pick Katie up in the afternoon I am being told how wonderful Katie is doing. There is a new counselor there that absolutely adores Katie.

Me? Still working on getting more products up on Regalo, coordinating my parents move to Florida, I reserved a storage unit for them in Venice. Cheapest one I have found so far. Damn these storage units are expensive.

My Poor Babies....

They will be going to have their surgeries on Wednesday. Chris decided not to stud Bentley out. He is the handsome little one on the left. Reese will hopefully be a bit calmer than she is. She instigates all the running around they do and all the rough housing, you think they were killing each other the way they play. Scooter our Rot/Shepard is a baby compared to these two. Scooter will normally get out of their way when they run around the house. The bundle of energy they have should come in a damn bottle.

I am nervous for them... I don't like surgeries when they are done on me and I definitely don't like it when it comes to my family. But it has to be done otherwise we will be grandparents and nope that ain't gonna happen:)

So I will post on their recovery come Wednesday and I will have better pictures tomorrow since they are going to get their baths and their hair trimmed.

In Mourning For One Of Our Own.

One of our own is suffering the unimaginable. DJ, also know to many as Puppy Monster and NYC Watchdog's five year old son, died of a swimming pool accident yesterday. Although I did not know them personally my heart goes out to the family. As a way of showing support for NYC and his family, please visit Avitable's site and purchase a badge like the one on the right to help the family financially during their time of need.

Girls Night Out

I have not been out without the kids and/or Chris in ages. Not that I haven't wanted to I just didn't have anyone to go anywhere with. Kat and I have been planning for quite some time to get out and do something. When she posted about the movie 1408 and how much she wanted to go see it, I knew we would finally be able to go somewhere without our kids.

We planned on a dinner and a movie. I took her to Cheeburger Cheeburger because she had never been there before and they really do have good burgers. We also went to see the movie 1408.
Kat decided to get the tickets ahead of time through Fandango and it's a good thing she did because the line outside the theatre was ridiculous. Not to mention the concession line and all the teeny line jumpers. Kat was ready to knock some heads and I did not blame her one bit.
The teenagers theses days really have no common courtesy. As we were finding our seats Kat was told by two teenage girls that the seats we wanted were saved. Kat was like really? I don't see anyone sitting in them! And of course we sat down in the "saved" seats:) I know we are a bunch of 30 something year old rebels!
The movie was better than I expected, I really enjoyed it! John Cusack has never made a bad movie and of course Samuel L. Jackson was perfect for his role. A lot of suspense and it definitely had Stephen King's charm all over the movie. I have not been to a movie in a long time where you actually jumped out of surprise. There were even a couple of screamers in the audience.

So even though we went on opening night and yes the theater was pretty much packed with teenage brats. I am grateful that I got to go out and spend a few hours with someone who needed to do the same. I can definitely see this turning into a monthly girls night out.

My Baby is driving...

I let Jeff drive home from work tonight. His learners permit allows teens under 18 to drive up until 11pm. He really is a good and attentive driver but every time I get into the passenger seat I have a hard time not being in control. He needs practice before he can really be comfortable taking his drivers test and I figured it would give him extra time behind the wheel if he drives to work and then back from work.

He is definitely growing up. He went to the mall today on his own and hung out with friends there. He came home and had to hurry to change into his work clothes. He wasn't actually scheduled today but the asst. manager where he works at the mall flagged him down and asked him to cover for a co-worker that called in sick. I am proud that he fills in when asked, never misses a day of work and doesn't complain about working. I know that right now he just sees all this as a mean to make money but I see a start to a great work attitude and great work ethics. I don't know too many teenagers that hold a job for more than a few months. Jeff's first anniversary will be this October.

Sorry... I am just a proud mama here;)

Pick on someone your own size...

that's what I would like to say to a certain counselor at my daughters camp. Katie has never been a " behavioral problem" in school or anywhere else. So why is it that I have had three disciplinary notes that I have had to sign regarding certain things that Katie supposedly did.

Monday - she gets written up for stealing some girls lunch and hiding it through out the gymnasium. Come to find out that there were several girls involved and another counselor told me that Katie did what another girl told her to do. My daughter sadly to say is a follower. Don't like it but I know it. Her dad and I try to enforce that it is not always ok to do things just because other kids are doing it. I know in time it will sink in but she is 7.

Tuesday - She gets written up for going into a construction zone at the middle school where they hold camp and then apparently hits another camper with a ball. When her dad talked to Katie we learned that she was chasing the ball another kid threw in the construction zone and when she threw it back it hit someone. I call that an accident not intentional. The counselor told me that she yelled at Katie to not go in that area. Uhm.. I have a problem with that.. y'see Katie has issues with her hearing which is clearly stated in her sign up form for the camp it also stated that she has tubes in hers. I told the counselor that YELLING at Katie is not going to insure that she will HEAR you. So that write up to me should be invalid.

Wednesday - another write up accusing Katie of drooling and spitting at other kids on the bus. This definitely disturbed me because that is not Katie. When we talked to her about this we learn that her and another girl were having a contest to see who could "zurbert" or put you lips together and make them vibrate the longest. So Katie being who she is and loves winning at contest did it so hard and long that yes she did drool and some spittle came out of her mouth. Was it done to intentionally spit on others? NO. So then I get this notice that Katie has been put on STRIKE status. Where you have three strikes and you are out. She is at strike one.

Now I have read the Strike Three policy which clearly states that children will be put on notice if they intentionally do harm to others or themselves.. Am I missing something because I do not see in any of the write ups where she intentionally did these things. I am going to have to talk with this supervisor. I understand that there are at least 30 kids in one group and there may be 3 supervisors to one group. My thinking is that they did not witness these events and therefore did not have the facts before assuming what happened and we all know what happens when you ASSuME.

I actually had a good weekend...

Friday I got some laundry done so that I wasn't bogged down with it on Saturday/Sunday. Saturday, after Chris sprayed insecticide in our home for ticks (they were here before we moved in) we took the canines to get their shots, took Jeff to work, went to the dog park so the pooches could get rid of some energy. We came back dropped off the pooches, Chris and Katie went to Wal Mart and I went to a friends house so she could show me html for dummies.

Chris and Katie went to a party thrown by Chris' work. Chris only mentioned needing reservations for two. So being that I didn't have time to get a sitter for her, Katie attended the party with her dad. I relished time to myself.

Sunday we took Chris out to lunch for Father's day. After Jeff got off from work we went to dinner with his parents and then decided to go see Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Not bad. It was nice to enjoy some time with my family.

Linky Love

I have read through several blogs where they "advertise" other bloggers. I find this both interesting and smart. So I would like to do my part in getting more exposure to my favorite blogs.

1) Of course you should all know Kat. Her site brings a variety of topics. She mostly blogs about being a single mom of two teenage boys and her battle with Scoliosis and the surgery that corrected her condition. Kat also blogs about current events, entertainment and things that make you think. I find her down to earth and a very intelligent woman. She is a mentor to me in the blogging world.

2) Mr. Fab is one of my all time favorites. He is definitely not for the prudes. His outlook on a variety of topics is hilarious and the things he comes up with are of course FABULOUS! I guarantee that if you visit his blog you will not leave without a smile on your face.

3) DSB Another Southerner with flare! She loves her boys and husband but also has a wild streak and is young at heart. She loves hot rods and cold beers and enjoys roller skating. She is definitely someone I can truly connect with.

I have many others which you can see on "My favorite fellow bloggers" on the sidebar. I encourage you to check them out you will not regret it!

Early Menopause

Actually I think the correct term for it is pre menopausal... whatever they call it I have been going through it for 4+ years. It started not long after I had my tubes cut, burned and tied with bands. I knew that the onset of menopause was a possibility but I decided to have it done because I did not want to take the chance of losing another baby (another post maybe).
I was never a candidate for the pill and the other birth control options were not all that appealing. Chris loved the idea of course, no precautions for him! Anyway shortly after having the procedure done I started to get hot flashes. Then I noticed that I was gaining weight big time. No change in my routine except for the increasing pounds. My mood would change from a serene individual to a complete hysterical lunatic. Although my libido increased. Yep that sure sounds sexy doesn't it? One minute I am a complete raging bitch to a sex starved tramp. It drives Chris crazy!
The funny thing is that there is nothing that I can take to control this crap. As long as my body keeps producing the hormones I get nada.
I had one hell of a hot flash today while at work. I could not get relief for nothing and let me tell you living in Florida where our summers get scorching does not help. I actually stood in front of the freezer with the door open for a good ten minutes while the other women in the office, both of which are old enough to be my mothers, laugh and sympathize with my situation. They CAN take drugs to ease their uncomfortableness where I can only dream that the estrogen in my body takes a nose dive. Now I am beginning to wonder it that too is also contributing to my migraines.
Damn I am never going to figure this out!

I believe in Miracles

I have never really discussed my faith because I worried about offending people.. that is until I realized that it's my faith and it doesn't really matter what anyone else thinks but me. I am a Christian. Although a fallen one. I know in my head and my heart what I should do but I don't always do it. The Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. I do not judge other's beliefs and I do not force mine upon them. I do however love my neighbor and I do my best to treat people the way I want to be treated.

The whole reason I bring this up is because I came upon this site for a young baby named Ethan Powell who has been diagnosed with Leukemia. His parents have this website to unite Christians in prayer for Ethan's healing. I searched around this site with tears slowly streaming down my face. He was diagnosed with these terrible disease at 2 months of age and has been battling it for some time now.

I know there is power in prayer. I know from personal experience from when my dad was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease in the early 70's. I was only 6 years old at the time. My dad was diagnosed in the very late stages of this horrific cancer and back then they only gave my dad maximum of 6 weeks to live. Surviving Hodgkin's even in the early stages was very slim so imagine the odds at the last stage.
My dad did go through Chemo treatments and took a ton of pills and I do remember him coming home for Christmas because he wanted to spend his last moments with his family. He did have to go back shortly after the new year and was preparing himself for death. Death did not happen for my dad. He slowly started to get better. Doctors could not comprehend what was going on and every day a new "miracle" as the docs called it happened. I firmly believe that the prayers that were prayed over my dad daily were heard. There is no medical or scientific explanation and the doctors had to admit that something else was at work with the healing of my dad.
My dad has been cancer free for 30 years. At 15 years they considered him cured. There were no medical treatments out of the ordinary given to my dad and he is even in the Cleveland Clinic medical studies because they had hoped that my dads recovery would give them answers. Nothing. I truly believe that my dad is living proof of a miracle.

House is a done deal.

My parents have indeed sold the house! It feels like a frickin' roller coaster ride. I don't think my heart can stand any more of this. I talked to my dad this time and the papers have been signed and the title transfer is already in process. They will have their money by July 11th and my parents will turn over possession on July 25th. Whew... glad that's done.

The "kid" as my dad calls him, because he is 25 yrs old, didn't understand how the process works and apparently thought he would be getting actual money back in his pocket. The truth of the matter is it would be going towards the title transfer and closing costs.

So now I have the job of finding them a self storage unit where they could put the things that my grandparents do not have the room for. If they do not sell their boat Chris and I might have to lodge it for awhile. It's a good thing we do not live in a deed restricted community. My parents would love to get a modular home in North Port, so I have been looking for different areas for them. My mom will be emailing me different places to look up for them. I am so glad they are finally coming. Although I am close to Chris' parents I sure do miss my own:)

My Mom called...

and she told me that they may not have sold the house. Apparently the man wants to make another proposal since the inspector came out on Thursday. My dad told their realtor absolutely not.
The house was put on the market "as is" and it clearly stated that the garage needed work. My dad already came down on the house and included the closing costs. This realtor won't take no for an answer. He insists that my parents need to "give a little".
I just don't understand why this realtor is giving my parents a hard time. Isn't it his responsibility to represent my parents interest instead of the buyer? Seems like we have a conflict of interest here.
The man contacted the realtor on his own after seeing my parents home on the website. I would show you the home but because the sale is pending they took it off the site.
As much as my parents would like to sell the house and move to Florida they are not just going to give it away. They put a lot of blood, sweat and tears to fix up the house as it is now. New siding, windows, front porch, front door, new tile kitchen floor, carpet and appliances. They have tapped out all the extra money they had to do this. My mom was so upset on the phone and I felt so bad for her and my dad. I would buy it myself if I could. I keep wanting to tell my mom that the "right buyer" will come along but everyone seems to want something for nothing these days. The house was put on the market for 130.000.00 and my parents agreed to 124,000.00. You can not buy a home down here in Florida for less than 200,000.00 and that's for a shack. My parents house is on a huge lot almost an acre. I am hoping that when the realtor gets to my parents house tomorrow morning he will understand my parents wishes. The bad thing is my parents are under contract with them until October. I wonder if there is a way for them to be able to sever the contract because of this dumb ass? If any one has real estate knowledge, would you please email me and let me know what options my parents have?

Another crappy day..

Why is it that on the weekends the migraines take me down for the count? It's almost like they have a sense of priority and responsibility to allow me to get through the work week with only a twinge of pain, but man come the weekend and I hurt to the point where it will take me hours after I wake up to be able to get out of bed. This isn't fair. I work hard during the week so I can ENJOY my weekend. I had plans today and I felt like an idiot for having to postpone them.

Jeff is finally working on his last essay. I am very proud of him because he has not once complained about having to do it. He even told me that he enjoyed reading the book and was amazed about all the content that the movie left out. Welcome to my world son... that's why I love books.. Sure I like watching the movie but there is nothing better than getting the story straight from the Author first! Now if these damn migraines would stop I may be able to start another book.

8 Things

Kat tagged me.

The rules: Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

1. I grew up in Northeast Ohio
2. I have talked personally via telephone with Brian Johnson of AC/DC. The plumbing company I work for services his home in Sarasota.
3. I am a very sensitive person. Painfully sensitive
4. I worry about everything.
5. I can play 4 instruments - Flute, piccolo, piano and the saxophone.
6. I haven’t played an instrument since before Katie was born (7+ years)
7. I am allergic to marijuana - it causes my trachea to swell and I can’t breathe
8. My very first book that my parents bought for me was the collections of Edgar Allen Poe and I fell madly in love with him;) Hence the start of my Stephen King and Dean Koontz infatuation.

I am not familiar with a lot of bloggers enough to tag them and I do know that some of them hate doing these. So If you would like play along please do. All I ask is that you let me know so I can read your 8 things.

We need to get healthy.

Chris announced the other day that he was giving up pepsi. This is like the water of the Gods to him. Chris would drink a 2 litre a day by himself. Personally I really didn't think he would do it but the last 4 days now he has been holding up well. The only bad thing is that since he has given up his favorite drink we all suffer. No soda in the house at all. Jeff has lost his root beer and I have lost my Orange Crush. Alternatives? Well... we have Gatorade in the fridge now. I had some Diet Pepsi left over from when Kat was here with her boys.. I can not get past the after taste of Diet sodas.. ewwww....

We have changed the way we cook and changed the amount of food we eat. Now I know in the long run it will be beneficial for everyone but I see Chris losing his weight faster than me. It's like that commercial with the cartoon man and woman. He gives up soda and so does she.. he loses 20 pounds and she looses 1. haha... the end result is he looks good and she gets angry and exclaims "What are trying to do? Weigh Zero?!" I laugh every time because it's true. It's harder for women 30 yrs and older to lose the weight.

He really doesn't need to lose all that much. Me? Try 40 pounds. I have never been this heavy. I will not let people take my picture because I truly can not stand the way I look. It depresses the hell out of me. Chris looks good he just has a little spare tire. He doesn't gain weight anywhere else. Me? I am one of those women that shares the fat with all of my body. I don't believe in being stingy.

I absolutely hate exercise because it is so damn boring. I would rather clean my house and work up a good sweat than go to a gym and watch everyone else sweat and besides the smell in those places is enough to gag a maggot.

So I think I will start posting the results each week. Maybe this will hold me accountable and also to motivate me to lose it faster than Chris;)

My son recently (last Thursday) got himself grounded for lying about playing on his dad's Xbox. I took his gameboy and T.V. away for five days. I know I was being lenient because I was not exactly sure he was on the Xbox. But I wasn't about to argue with Chris. Let's face it father and son push each other's buttons constantly.
Well.. today he was caught. I get a call at work from Chris telling me that there is definite proof that Jeff once again was on the Xbox. The T.V. and Xbox were hot when Chris got home, a different game was in the Xbox and the battery charger was out. So when we confronted Jeff with this evidence we were ready for him to deny it. He didn't. He couldn't because he knew he was busted.

Now since he is already grounded for the same offense I had to get creative. He is still grounded from his T.V. with dish connection and his gameboy but now he has no cell phone for one month (even though he bought his own cell phone and pays his own bill) and he has to read a book (Eragon) and he has to do an essay for every 12 chapters. Eragon has 59 Chapters Albeit small chapters. Along with that he will have to do a final summary on the book overall and he will be grounded from everything until it is finished. So basically he is in charge of how long he is grounded and since I know he doesn't like to read this is going to take awhile.

I also made him change his voicemail on his cell to the following:

"This is Jeff. I can't answer the phone. Don't leave a message. I won't be able to retrieve it. I am grounded for defiantly disobeying my parents rules, because I am not responsible enough to obey my parents rules, I am not responsible enough to have a cell phone at this time".

Hopefully now he will consider the consequences before doing something else wrong.

Another weekend...

and no rest for the weary. I cleaned my house from top to bottom this weekend. Laundry, dusting, bathrooms, kitchen, vacuum. The only thing I did not do was wash the floors. I also worked on getting more items onto the website.

I talked to my mom the last two days. She called me yesterday to tell me that they have finally sold the house in Ohio and they will be leaving on July 25th to come to Florida. They have been wanting to do so for over a year now. This house originally belonged to my dad's parents.
My parents lived with my grandmother for awhile to help her out and when she got sick with 2 types of cancer they pretty much took care of her. My grandmother passed away in March of 2006. So needless to say I am so excited that they will moving down here. The kids miss them terribly. We last saw them in October when they came down for a visit.
I am now in the process of looking up homes for them. They of course plan on staying with my mom's parents that live in Nokomis. Knowing my dad they will not be there very long. haha...
So even though it hasn't been the best of weekends I did get good news.

To Bitch or not to Bitch... Or just plain be one....

Well for me it's 36 years. haha... Chris and I have always had this argument about how Chris thinks that all women are bitches and I used to get so angry with him for thinking that because I didn't consider myself a bitch.
Well... now I admit that I can be and y'know what? It's my right to be a bitch.
9 out of 10 times when I am bitchy, shit gets done around here because no body likes me in a foul mood. I have learned to be "bitchy" more often:)
I used to call Chris an asshole but I have stopped because I got tired of him saying " Damn right I am an asshole.. I will be the first one to tell you that I am an asshole" It's almost like he has let the air out of my tires.. stupid reverse psychology shit. I absolutely hate it when he pulls that stuff.
