WOW!!! Simply amazing

First and foremost I want to give props to all the incredibly talented folks out there, I am NOT one of them so I am always jealous of those that can see a Lego for example and build something wicked cool with it, or when one see's a blank canvas and paints a master piece.

I see a Lego and see a brick, I see a blank canvas and have a instant panic attack. Like I said I AM NOT CREATIVE IN THE LEAST....

well I received this email today and these ladies that make these are well PRETTY DARN CREATIVE AND MAKING AMAZING ART OUTTA what Mother Nature gives them...

you hear the saying.

When Life gives you lemons make lemonade....

these ladies have taken that saying and thrown it out and came up with a WHOLE new meaning to it.

Check them out and enjoy

Now you can not tell me that these are not the most amazing things you have seen made outta what Nature gives you...

I think these woman are very talented and If I knew who they were I would so give them props.


Oh and in case you were wondering what these horses are made outta Its Drift wood and old wood.

Like I said PRETTY AMAZING....

Too Much

I was thinking the other day, Yes I do that from time to time and it can get scary, But I was thinking, I am totally out numbered by Testostorone, I mean I am surrounded by boys that LOVE anything and all things GROSS...

Boogers? Just another body part ( especially when they want to show the BIG ONE... )

Farts? heck thats just your butt saying hello...

Stinking? arn't all boys supposed to smell like day ol road kill?

These are just a few of the many things I live with daily... I am always on them about saying excuse me when they pass gas, but apperantly there is some unspoken rule amongest boys that when one does release gas to roll on the floor laughing like someone just told the best joke ever.

As for the boogers I mean I swear their fingers are attached to their noses. I am always saying

GET YOUR FINGER OUT OF YOUR NOSE... I never thought that would be a statement that I say on a regular basis like one says

And don't even get me started on the belching. They can make a truck driver proud with that gift.

So as I am constantly reminded of the simple fact that I am the ONLY female in a home of boys I would think being at work is my saftey zone, I mean seriousely how can one be grossed out at work???

WELL APPERENTLY THEY CAN.... I would like to introduce you all to our newest item in the store.

seems harmelss enough right?

WRONG... this is out flatulent pig... yep its a whoopie Cushion pig... and my many customers get a real kick outta this little oinker...

Can I ever get away from the Testostorone filled humor???

Who KNEW???? I am one of THOSE parents

Ok I never thought I would be one of those parents that would say....

WHEN I WAS YOUR AGE I HAD TO... yadda, yadda, yadda fill in the blank...

Then I received this email and well I CAN OFFICIALLY SAY I AM ONE OF THOSE PARENTS.. sniff sniff.....

So if you are one of these parents I say HOLD YOUR HEAD OF HIGH AND SAY..... I REMEMBER WHEN.....

I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!!

There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter - with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox, and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10 cents!

Child Protective Services didn't care if our parents beat us. As a matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our ass! Nowhere was safe!

There were no MP3's or Napsters or iTunes! If you wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself!

Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio, and the DJ would usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up! There were no CD players! We had tape decks in our car.. We'd play our favorite tape and "eject" it when finished, and then the tape would come undone rendering it useless. Cause, hey, that's how we rolled, Baby!

We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called, they got a busy signal, that's it!

There weren't any freakin' cell phones either. If you left the house, you just didn't make a damn call or receive one. You actually had to be out of touch with your "friends". OH MY GOD !!! Think of the horror... not being in touch with someone 24/7!!! And then there's TEXTING. Yeah, right. Please! You kids have no idea how annoying you are.

And we didn't have fancy Caller ID either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your parents, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, the collection agent... you just didn't know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!

We didn't have any fancy PlayStation or Xbox video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600! With games like 'Space Invaders' and 'Asteroids'. Your screen guy was a little square! You actually had to use your imagination!!! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen... Forever! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE!

You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on! You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your ass and walk over to the TV to change the channel!!! NO REMOTES!!! Oh, no, what's the world coming to?!?!

There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying? We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little rat-finks!

And we didn't have microwaves. If we wanted to heat something up, we had to use the stove! Imagine that!
And our parents told us to stay outside and play... all day long. Oh, no, no electronics to soothe and comfort. And if you came back inside... you were doing chores!

And car seats - Don't get me started!!!!! Mom threw you in the back seat and you hung on for dear life. If AND ONLY IF you were luckily, you got the "safety arm" across the chest at the last moment if she had to stop suddenly, and if your head hit the dashboard, well that was your fault for calling "shot gun" in the first place!

See! That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids today have got it too easy. You're spoiled rotten! You guys wouldn't have lasted five minutes back in 1980 or any time before!

SO there you have it ladies and gentlemen.... I AM ONE OF THOSE PARENTS....

Crazy and Hectic....

It never fails, when one has tons on her plate there never seems to be enough hours in the day... let alone enough days in a week.

We have had birthday parties, Re-arranging of rooms that consisted of painting the walls, work, April fools day, Easter, Six Flags and even a death...

To say I have been busy is the understatement of the year.

Rang-Tangs birthday is April 1st. So this year it fell on a Thursday which is the day I work from 10am to 8pm, We decided to have the party the Sunday before at the local pool. Rang had a great time and I as usual stressed over every little detail for NO REASON...

And because I am a gluten for punishment, and decided I didn't already have enough stress in my life, I decided to take it upon myself to paint the Nemo playroom so Darling Hubby and I could move into the playroom. ( why you ask did we move into there? Well I will tell you why....

You see the playroom is at the front of the house and we happen to live in a cul de sac with some pretty shady neighbors. Both hubby and I did not feel safe with the monkeys in that room, so for that last 2 1/2 years the monkeys have had their bunk-beds in the master suit with us. )

hubby and I decided since all we do is sleep in the room with the occasional Hankie-Spankie, and seeing how the monkeys have far more crap than us, we would give them the master suit and move into the Nemo playroom.

Well like I said I took it upon myself to paint. NOT knowing that you can not paint over semi-gloss paint with Latex without sanding the walls first. ( OY VEY )

so after hours of moving everything outta the room and sanding the walls I was ready to run into the closet and lock the door behind me...for I loath painting... No I mean it, I REALLY HATE TO PAINT.... I think I have a issue with it. from my ANAL mom and dad, you see we had to paint the walls of our house I swear every other freaking year cause
( insert my mom's voice ) THEY ARE DIRTY......

So in comes hubby and See's how hot and sweaty and blue I was ( YES I WAS BLUE FROM HEAD TO TOE.... darn Nemo water... I mean really..... WHO"S DUMB IDEA WAS IT TO PAINT A UNDERWATER ROOM????? oh yeah me..... )

So we get the walls wiped down and start the painting.
what??? what is that you say???? what color did we use?

glad you asked. I WANTED A DEEP DARK RICH RED..... we now have a sagie ( not sure if that is even a word ) eucalyptus green, We did try the red with some sample paint. EWWWW!!! NO did not look good I thought I would end up having a seizure with all the red.

so now we have a nice calming pretty room.

Then came Rang's actual birthday so after I got off work we went to Bahama Bucks for some yummy sno-cones. then home. we Hubby and I actually had the entire weekend off. We had a terrific Easter morning then met up with friends at six flags which was our first time and it was FANTASTIC.... there was really NO waits the only wait hubby and my 6 year old Rang had was the new Tony Hawk roller coaster. ( yep my little Rang Tang LOVES SCARY RIDES.... ) while mommy and grasshopper stay safely on the ground.... ( I AM A CHICKEN AND PROUD OF IT...)

To end the crazy week I found out today that my main boss had passed away Easter morning. She was the nicest person anyone could hope to meet. ALWAYS had a big smile on her face. I can honestly say I never saw her without one. The world is a sadder place without her in it. But Heaven is dancing in the streets to have her there.

So folks that has been my week in a nut shelf. I have lots of photos that I will be posting in the next few days.
