keys on keyboard are sticking. katie has declared her room done, pictures on facebook. have decided my room needs a pirates of the caribbean poster on the closet door.
found out the only person in the world who can sell us the chiefs tickets is on vacation until july 6.
old couch has went to the ditch. .waited in line about an hour to pick up my order at the PSF employee meat sale....and they were out of bacon.
josh, corey, & dakota over for basketball, wrestling, & breadeaux pizza courtesy of mr. kj...
kevin had to drive the truck to work...he has realized the a/c on car isn't working...I guess he forgets that we didn't have a vehicle with a/c for many many years. had to turn on the a/c here last nite, a storm blew up & had to shut all the windows, but turned it off when I got home. took the dogs on a short walk....
I try not to pry.
recently someone commented that Katie was 'in a relationship' on facebook. today I finally checked it out. and she is 'in a relationship'. hmmmm. with whom, I wonder? not that she'll ever tell me. I am going to assume this someone is also at the All Night Skate at Bethany. and that she is having a marvelous time. because the person I suspect she is in a relationship with just posted a smiley face on her wall when I stalked it. the world is a changin', but one thing will always be the same. a mom will try to figure out (cleverly, she'll tell herself) just what her kid is up to.
took vivian & katie to the all night skate, katie got a allan poster for her room, the dogs got a walk....made hamburgers & fries for lunch. had to pick corey up from work.
Vivian & Katie on a Mercer Pizza Plus run. the usual gang was over for wrestling & board games...Val, Corey,Josh, & KJ.
my butt is draggin' today.
watching Haunted Collector. awesome....the old guy takes their haunted antiques & puts them in his museum where they can't haunt anybody anymore...
still working on the shelf wall facing closet, and the top edge of dresser drawers. found zebra ceramic knobs for dresser, not liking the way the painted knobs I'd done looked. we are getting there! have to get the mirror off to paint edges....decided we wouldn't paint the trunk. have to get kevin to put up the curtain rods so I can make the curtains...put up the Cody Simpson poster...and Ta Da! done! she sorted thru her sock drawer last nite, need to have her sort thru dresser drawers, stuffed animals, and dvds when she puts her room back together. we'll be back to school shopping soon....sigh. the seasons come and go so quickly anymore...
my favorite part of the day? watching Miss Katie dance, of course, and listening to the other dance moms grumbling. See, Kevin, it's not just me. I am too proud of my kids & probably think they are much more talented than they are.
did some research on line for other dance studios. just wish we were closer to stuff...or I didn't have to work so I had more time to run her here & there.
sanded her wall this morning, got 3 coats of paint on last wall, new sheets &comforter on the bed, windows measured to make zebra curtains, and started painting the dresser drawer knobs.
Kj spent the nite with Dakota last nite. he declined an invite to see Pirates of the Caribbean tonite, he has to get up early to go to work. I am still waiting for the dvd. just too tired to go to the movies.
Adventureland Band Trip is tomorrow. Kevin took the day off to go along so I don't have to ride the bus. I go back to work Tuesday, Chiefs meeting that night, Katie has dentist Weds. & has Morgan over Tuesday-Thursday.
this can cause diminished lung capacity, pressure on the heart, and decreased physical activity.
kevin paid off the truck and car today! so we will have some extra $ every month. next month this will cover summer dance class. Katie isn't sure she wants to dance next year. I'm sure she will decide she has to. I think she really needs to dance. This year wasn't a spectacular one for her awards, she did so good her first year. She went up a level, changed styles of dance, & she was damn good. she didn't score as well as we'd hoped, she didn't make TopStarz, she didn't score Top 10. but she will always be my star. I believe in you, Katie! and you will be famous someday.
katie was doing more turtle research today. she watched morgan & got her 2nd paycheck today.
I decided while remote controlling my boar around in his wonderful cart at work that my little cabin in the woods will have a weiner dog paradise....a fenced in back yard & doggie door so they can go out potty on their own. I will adopt weiner dogs from area shelters. I was on Green Hills page the other day & found 2 weiner dogs. they are very needy. I told katie I would get a little wagon and harness the dogs to it and have them pull me about my property while I wear a sparkly tiara and a see thru lace dress. she pointed out it would get ripped on branches and then I'd be even more naked....but a gal has to dream, doesn't she? I never expected a lot out of life (or honestly thought I deserved a lot out of life...) but I found someone to love me and I have 3 wonderful kids. I always wanted to be a mom. I'm not the mom I wanted to be, bit maybe they'll still have fond memories anyway...
kevin is mowing the yard. he wanted the tent down. he is in somewhat of a mood. but then, so am I. need some quiet time or some g^&*()_ sleep.
there was some drama at dance, the teacher made an announcement that her teenage helper had told her our group of girls was grumbling that next years groups wouldn't be any good. she assured them that the new girls would make the groups better than ever. she doesn't want them fighting this close to nationals. so why even bring it up? wait till her girls are tweens....I still wonder if kate was the culprit. I love my kids, but especially with my girls, if evil if afoot, I know they are capable of it...especially when katie made the comment that you just couldn't trust (insert name here)...katie isn't doing groups next year. she didn't find them especially fun.
guess I should get my lazy ass to work. yay me.
