You all get a bonus post today!!
Actually it is easiest for me to post these here so that those who want to see them can. My Mom, siblings, Cat, My December girls, etc.
Ed went to his first formal dance tonight. I think they all look lovely!!

I am seriously running out of pictures to post. ::sigh::
This one was taken last summer at a car show. Super shiny car!! I remember how incredibly hot it was that day. The pavement was so hot it was burning my feet through my flip flops. Man I miss summer. I did notice yesterday though that one of my plants is starting to grow. I just planted it last summer so I didn't realize how hardy it was! Also I saw a dandelion in my flower bed right up against the house. I have never been happier to see one of those dirty whores! (Yes that's what I call them.)
We have a few inches of new snow on the ground so I plan on bringing my camera along with me today on the drive down to a poker tournament. Wish me luck. I don't play much any more. I played last Sunday night and didn't make it much past the third blind raise. I need to remember not to just piss my chips away today.
Hopefully tomorrow I'll have snow pics and good poker stories.

I am so flippin' busy with my Dad's house and the kids plus I ended up with Hannah's chest cold. Let me tell you, there is nothing quite as gross as throwing up cherry Nyquil. It looks like blood. Yuck!
Hopefully stuff will right itself soon and I will be able to write something more than a drive-by "hi".

This summer we had a swarm of bees take up residence in our maple tree. They refused to leave and we ended up having to have bee keepers come and remove them.

Happy over commercialized valentines day everyone!!
PS It was a deer hiding in the woods. We were out driving around when I spotted him lying under a tree. I told Shawn to back up. The deer was running through the woods by then. That was the only shot I got of him. Sucky!

This is one of those shots that lives inside my head. The one that got away. As you can clearly tell the shot I was going for did not turn out. Can you tell though what's hiding in the woods?
Cat you aren't allowed to guess since you already know!!
I would like to apologize to all of you for being such a shitty blog reader this week. I have been busy working on my etsy site and Hannah has been home sick 3 days this week. I have spent a lot of time being Nurse Mommy. I hope to catch up with all of you next week!
PS. I got a text from my Mom last night. She didn't heed my warning to close out my blog and return tomorrow!

If you are the woman who gave birth to me close the window and come back tomorrow. If I don't call you Mom, read on.
See the private property sign? I should have listened.
Ever have one of those days you aren't sure you will live through? Yesterday was that day. Obviously I lived but I may need to go to a cardiologist now as I'm sure my heart may never be the same.

I am in super crazed stressed mode right now. I will fill everyone in when I catch my breath. For now I will leave you with this photo and let you all know the brilliant Irish Gumbo will be here again tomorrow!

I obviously didn't take this photo but I just found it on my sisters myspace page and had to share it here.
What's funny about this picture is my brother is the President of the local fire department and my sister just quit the fire department. So my brother the fireman is carrying my sister the firewoman in the fireman's hold. Ha!
Plus my brother isn't often very playful so when he is I mark it on my calendar and tell the entire world about it. It is that big a deal!
Oh yeah, picture was taken at Jen's wedding. She also left a message for/about all of you here.

I am so mad I could punch a baby. Okay not really but I am pissed.
This started yesterday afternoon. We were given a sleep number bed by our friends whose renter left it behind when he moved out. We got the bed yesterday, sat it all up which took like forever. Plugged in the pump and nothing. I called our local store. Turns out we are missing the wireless remote. Not biggie, just call tomorrow and order one from the company.
This morning I called and waited on hold forever only to find out they don't make remotes compatible with our pump anymore so we have to order a new pump and remote at the cost of $450. I don't fucking think so. Now, I have to decided if it is worth it to continue to look around and see if I can find a cheaper pump. I already checked Craig's List and EBay.
Friday the plumber called to discuss the work they did at my Dad's house last week and to let me know they had one more day of work to go. They would be there today. I told him that would be perfect since the electrician comes tomorrow and he needed to be done and out of the plumbers way. I stopped this morning to unlock the door so they could get in. Shawn and I ran over a bit ago to check on the progress. Nothing. No one had been there yet. Fuckers.
I called the plumber. We can't get there today. The earliest opening we have is Wednesday. Huh? Okay buddy you will have to wait to get paid then because the electrician starts tomorrow and doesn't want you under foot. I'll call you when he is done.
Checked the mail for the remaining W-2's I need to file our taxes. One is there, one is missing. No biggie, I'll call the company and get their federal ID and State ID numbers. No dice. They can't give them to me. Huh? I have always received them from other companies when I have needed them. This jack ass will not budge. I just spent the last hour trying to get a live person at the IRS to ask how I can get the number and to let them know this jack ass company hasn't sent the forms out yet. Once again. No dice. Trying to get a live person at the IRS is a herculean task. Same goes for every Minnesota state IRS office. No one provides live support. Fuck. So I planned on just putting in what I could off the one W-2 I received today and plug in my stock information. The world is conspiring against me today. Turbo Tax online is down. Lord have mercy.
I had planned to check my bank account and see if my child support is in there. It is due today and all but I would hate to have to call the sperm donor and freak out on him for not paying it so I won't even bother to check.
Have a drink on me if you made it to the end. It's only noon people.
Hold the hate mail. I would never actually punch a baby. I might bite it's toes off and come dangerously close to nibbling an ear clean off but I would never punch one.

Yesterday was Shawn's 36th Birthday. He is getting his post a day late because I dedicated yesterday's post to my sister. I figure if you are lucky you get tons of birthdays and if you are even luckier you only have one wedding day!
Look at those faces. Could they be any more serious? We are missing a kid in that photo because he is a teenager and his parents don't rank very high on the people he wants to hang out with scale.
