Today was my day off and I don't know what to do with myself. 

I only have one kid at home and he's pretty self-sufficient. Boo is with my sis-n-law and Babygirl is at camp. So. I took a picture of myself. Interesting turnout, no? 

Kind of Hnt-y. Happy HNT by the way!!!!

Mother's Day ~ Making Out Like A Bandit

Mother's day was pretty awesome for your's truly. My husband gave me these:

Aren't they beautiful?

Boo gave me this:

In case you're wondering it's a snake. And it's on my dash.

My beautiful sister and my lovely mother gave me probably the most expensive and quite possibly the awesomest gift I have ever received. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!:

Yep, an iPhone! How cool am I?

I also finally got to go on a The Swiss Avenue Home and Garden Tour. Extremly gorgeous old historic homes. I've been wanting to do one for a very long time so my dear husband sucked it up and took me. Really great day!

Boo at the tour:

Open letter to the gangbanger in the Olds on I-30:

Dear Assmonkey,
I'm so sorry that I dared to get over in your lane. It was just that the huge truck in front of me was going 40mph on the highway and I really wanted to get home. My 16 year old had just been released from the hospital and we were both extremely exhausted. If I had known that you would then pull up next to me, give me your best gangster glare and then proceed to come into the lane and try to occupy the very same space my car was already in I would have refrained from getting over at all. Oh, and BTW, if your gang initiation was to kill someone by car, I have one word for you: FAIL!

Thank you,
Your fellow highway driver,


In other news, Bits did not make the tennis team, unfortunately, but didn't seem all that upset about it. When he came home on Monday after finding out I said, "Well?" and he goes, "What?" I said, "Hellooo, the tennis tryouts." and he just said, "Oh, I didn't make it."

Well ok then.


Babygirl is doing well after her most recent stint in the hospital getting chemo. She had this weird pain in her chest while we were there and they did an EKG but everything looked normal. When we got out she had all this energy and felt better than she had in months but that kind of petered out so now she is back to her normal level of exhaustion.



At the Dallas Zoo

Out with friends!

Introducing Fleur!

Here's our new kitty! We got her at the local animal shelter which is overrun with kittens right now. (Spring and all that.) Doesn't she have the sweetest little face?

They told us when we adopted her that she is 5 weeks old but when I got her home I knew better. She didn't know how to eat out of a dish or use a litter box and today when we took her to the vet, she said she is no older than 3 or 4 weeks. They also said that it was a good thing we adopted her because she would be much better cared for. I just feel bad for her littermates.

She is going to be one loved kitty!

Conversations With Boo

(Between Mark and Boo)

Boo: "Dad, what's a conscious?"
Mark: "Oh, you mean a conscience. It's that little voice inside your head that tells you not to do things you aren't suppose to do."
Boo: (Thinking) "Well, mine tells me to just do it*."

*This is why she can't stay out of trouble at school.
Boo: "I read from the bible in Sunday School today."
Mark: "Oh yeah, what did you read?"
Boo: "Do everything without grumbling and arguing. Fallopians 1:18."
Mark: "I think you might mean Philippians. Hahaha!"

Bits, Boo and Babygirl

But Was It A Double Dog Dare?

I'm sitting at work on Wednesday morning and my cell phone starts ringing. I look at the screen and it is my youngest daughter's school calling. The first thing that goes through my mind of course is, 'Crap, now what?'

There are three things that Boo's school calls about.

#1~ Illness. With Boo this has only happened twice.

#2~ Injury. This happens a little more frequently owing to the fact that she is a total klutz.


#3~ Trouble. This seems to be happening more and more these days.

Well, lucky me it just happens to be a #3. (Ha, that rhymes!)

Her teacher, Mrs. Hite, tells me that Boo has gotten in trouble and that she is going to let her tell me what happened. She gives Boo the phone and I hear this pathetic little "Hello." I ask her what happened and she informs me that she just got in trouble for.......(OMG, this is so embarrassing).....kissing someones butt. Yes, she kissed a little boy's butt. Why, you ask? After telling her that that is nasty I asked her why she did it and she say's, "SHE DARED ME! SHE CALLED ME A CHICKEN!"

Haha! Lovely isn't it? My daughter is prone to giving in to peer pressure and not even for something fun. I told her if something like this ever happens again to tell the person she rather be a chicken than a butt-kisser. Her misunderstanding response, "BUT I DON'T WANT TO BE A CHICKEN AND A BUTT-KISSER! ....Oohh boy.

Boo (on the left) and my niece.

It's A No Go

Well, chemo didn't happen today. It seems every kid in Dallas is sick at the moment and they didn't have one single bed to put Babygirl in. Oh well, I kinda wanted to get it over with, all this anxiety can't possibly be good but shit happens so what ya gonna do? It will probably be Friday before they can get her in. I'll keep everyone posted.


While watching Romney's "silver" speech after coming in second in New Hampshire:

Mark: "New Hampshire Rocks!"

Boo: "Dad, what's New Hamster?"

Chemo Shmemo...

Tomorrow Babygirl goes into the hospital to get chemo. She will be getting two new medicines, Cisplatin and Lomustine, plus Vincristine which she has had before. She doesn't usually have to be admitted but they have to keep her in the hospital after they administer the two new ones so they can keep her hydrated because they cause the hated nausea and vomiting.

Keep us in your prayers!
