little extra

My husband won a couple hundred dollars playing the slot machines yesterday. So after buying a few things we needed, we both took $50.00 for ourselves. So now I'm wondering what to go and spend it on. I've made a list of things I want to get and I always have it on hand. Cause it never fails. When I get a little money to play around with I can't think of anything I really wanted until I spent the money and then think damn, I should have got that. LOL
So I'm either going to go refresh my book supply or I'm going to go to Joannes and michaels and see what sort of halloween goodies they have on sale. Although amazon.com seems to ahve really good prices on halloween stuff right now. I need more statues and stuff to go on my shelves this year.
Well, ok. Now I just made up my mind what I'll be getting. LOL
I saw a statue of a grimm reaper at amazon for 12.99 and I think I'll start off and get that or maybe 2 of them...one for each side of the book shelf. Ok, I'm off to buy scary things....wheeeee

Question of the day

So today I got "The Changeling" in the mail from netflix. I've never seen it and had heard it was a good flick. I was amazed how scary this movie was. George C Scott was wonderful in this movie. He can change his expression with the quirk of an eyebrow.

So todays question is...
What was the last movie you saw? Did you like it?

Question of the day

So I had to call around to see if I could get a better price on car insurance. Now let me tell you I really HATE talking on the phone to people I don't know. lol Just one of those little quirks about me I guess.
So I get out the yellow pages and start thumbing through, calling number after number. Giving the same nformation over and over again. After doing this sooo many times I figured out that what I'm paying right now is about average and I see no real reason to change, much to my hubby's dismay. lol
So When my husband see's me putting the phone book away after all the calls, he picks up the papers I had been writing on to se the different prices and then starts laughing. I don't really see whats so funny so I ask him. Hey, whats so darn funny?" He looks at me and says, why did you write down all this information? You see I wrote down every possible scrap of information I might need to tell the person on the other end of the phone.

So the question of the day is this....
Before making a telephne call, do you ever reherse or write down what your going to say?

Day all to myself

I had the place all to myself all day. Ken went to help his friend steve with his truck and has been gone all day. My daughter went to her friends pool party. She even brought me back a piece of chocolate cake. Her friend has 3 hamsters and got a rat for her b-day today. She brought him over to show me and my heart just melted. He's so cute. She has a black bear hamster. He's all black except for his lil white feet. What an adorable lil guy.

I watched a movie I got from Netflix called Devour. It was kinda weird but a nice way to spend an hour and a half. lol Then I went to a website a couplde friends told me about and bought some wicca supplies. I found a really pretty wiccan necklace too.

I called my mom and listened to her tell me all about how my dad is pissed cause I refuse to talk to him again. But he said somethings to me and ken in front of our kid that were really hurtful and that's inexcusable. I really don't need someone who stays drunk 24/7 in mine or my kids life right now.

Ken and steve got back a bit ago and went back out but they dropped off 3 caneloupes and a small watermelon off before taking off again. He told me he had a sack full of cherry tomatoes for me too. Cool. Last week he brought over this huge zucchini. It was 18 inches long and had to be 10 inches round. lasted us 3 days. lol

If you could have the answer to ANY question. What would you ask?

Wednesday, August 17, 2005


No, I'm not talking about the kind you eat either. You know I had no idea what the hell computer cookies were. Then someone told me where they were, what they are and to delete them from time to time. lol Well, since I had no idea what in the world they were, yeah I'm computer illiterate. lol I went and looked at them when I found them. OMG!!! So I've had this computer for like 4 years now and the cookies have never been deleted. So can you imagine how many pages of cookies there were? Alot.
Not really sure if it did anything good for the pc, but it can't hurt. Right? lol

Darn, no pictures :(

2 weeks ago I got up early and went to Lorenzi Park, took my camera and took about 15 pictures of the ducks, geese, pigeons, and what ever kinda birds they have there. I think they are ducks but heck if I know. I waited a week to finally put the film in for developing and since it' s that 35 mm film that you get a free picture cd with it, it takes 7 days to come back. So I go and pick up my pictures today thinking I would ahve some good pictures and the clerk tells me that none of the pictures came out. That it looks like it was a bad roll of film. Bad roll of film? I've been buying film for a long time and this has never happened to me before. So she gave me store credit and the next roll of film will be free. So I bought another roll of film and sometime this week I plan to go to the park again and take more pictures. Then ones I had I know would have come out so good. I had like 50 birds around me, and of course the greedy geese, heck I was even hand feeding one pigoen that decided to sit on the bench with me. lol Early in the morning when nonone else is there, the ducks come out in force, I was putting bread crumbs by my feet and had ducks walking all over my feet trying to get to the bread. It was pretty cool. lol

My day of shopping

I was going to post this last night but for some reason I coulnd't get on my blog, something about cookies being dosabled and javascript not enabled...blah blah blah....I'm not a computer expert so I just waitied until this morning to try again and low and behold I can post again. hmmmmm lol
Throw Computer
I can see the question trickling in your mind at this very momentt.....what are you going to rant about this time? Well let me tell you. Oh Jeez
I was out all day doing shopping for school clothes with my daughter. Fun fun. I wouldnt be doing this if I didn't think it was necessary, and oh was it necessary. She needed some new pants to get dirty and ruin the first day of school. I thought girls were suppossed to be neater, Girly Girl cleaner and quieter? Mine is loud, bubbly, happy when she shouldn't be and chatters like a crack addict! I'm not kidding. This kid can sit and talk about absolutely nothing for hours! She is bubbly happy and laughing, god I want to smack her sometimes.
Now we get home and she has to call her friends to come over and see her new clothes. Well duh! What was I thinking? These kids never seem to go away, they seem to lurk around,.lol
Now one of her friends is a total loud mouth. Now I know I can talk my ass off, but this chick takes the cake...think of me....only 100 times worst!
Shut Up
How fitting...

That my only child would find someone to be best freinds with that can look at a rose petal laying on the ground all my itself and find 1000 things to say about it. I'm not kidding!

Ahhh the future of america..........that is why I am pro choice!

I’m just screwed if my family ever decides to start reading my blog. Oh wait, Ken does sometimes. Hi Ken.
So since I was out all day I wasn't around to pay attention to my old Rat, Romi. She is getting up in years and just like an elderly person she has ways to tell you she is pissed at you when your not around. So Romi decided to shake the water bottle all to hell and let the water leak all over the cage, yeah it was full when I left. Then since that wasn't good enough, she decided to dump the canned dog food I gave her all over the spilled water. Yeah that was nice and smelly to clean up. Angelic Mouse She eats canned dog food cause she is old and won't chew seeds anymore. lol Yeah she's so spoiled. But oh, she also decided to take her bedding..I give her cotton like fluff to sleep on..made for small animals. But she decided to pull that out of her house and let it soak up some of the water. Maybe she was trying to clean the mess up before mommy got home. Ya think?

So I come home, listen to the kids yap about clothes, Shut Up school, boys ....gawd make it stop! lol , I look over at the cage and she is looking at me, with her head hung low so her little beady black eyes are starring straight at me. Yeah I can imagine what she was thinking. "C'mon over here mommy..I have a surprise for you" LOL
So I go over, take her out and her little feet are covered with dog foodwater, nice.... clean her up and put her on her towel on the couch so I can clean out her cage. I'm not tired enough at this point..Oh no.

I'm almost done, just wiping out the cage and putting new bedding, food, and fluff..not to mention filling the water bottle and affixing it to the inside of the cage with velcro..take that Romi..try and move it now. lol
I look over and find that dear loving Romi has become a towel shredder, shredding down said towel with her teeth and paws. Oh hell no. I'm allready tired enough, I don't intend to spend the better part of the night picking towel threads off the couch and out of her claws. So I go over and take the towel away...but Romi rattie is not done...Oh no..not by a long shot. I go put everything right in the cage and get ready to put her back cause frankly I need a cup of tea. I go to get her and she's gone! But then I see the couch cushion moving. My couch has miraculously grown a Rat appendage.!
I go peek under the cushion and it seems she is cleaning under there for me. LOL She found a peanut and is curled up eating it. I picked her up and she finished her peanut and then layed her head on my arm, now how was I going to put her down after she looked up at me all sweet. So of course she spent the next 2 hours on the couch snuggled up on me while I finally had my tea and watched t.v. . lol
