i always said i'd never
put a pair of crocs on my feet.
when everyone was raving over these
hideous shoes (they are cute on kids, tho!)
i even emailed my bff to warn her
not to get caught up in the frenzy.
well, look at me now.
i am telling myself i am not
technically going back on my word
since these look nothing like those
in other news
aren't these cute??
the boy one loves them.
he says it's for times
when you don't want to commit to a
full size banana.
this is the staple to
i made this last week,

finished my book today.
it only took like a month!!
in all fairness, i lost it for a week or two...
but it was so good, i think i might have
been purposely reading slow to make it last!!
my fortune today read:
deep faith eliminates fear.
i got to watch two episodes of dexter.
okay that's it for today.
hubby leaves tomorrow for amarillo
and the spurs game is on.
365: yes.yes you do want to see atonement.

i still get points even though
it was over leggings, right??
i went shoe shopping,
that will detract points since
i didn't buy any...
went to see 27 dresses
the only part i dug
was the dancing on the bar
to benny & the jets.
i really want to see juno.
trying to work in a pic
for the 365...
that's abi's idea of a sandwich.
yes, you see turkey
and hot cheetos.

brother in law is in town.
that means there will be
non-stop video gaming and
beer drinking this weekend.
not by me, mind you,
i will be cooking.
i am making him home-cooked meals
since he lives off of jose-ole burritos.
in other news
e-dubb plays today.
cross your fingers for us
as 3 of our starters will be out.
one for grades,
one for injury
and one for family issues.
the boy one has a drive today.
it's his 5th hour, which means
and now i must shower
i have "manga" hair
as hubby calls it.
happy saturday y'alls!!

i got two things
of my grandmother's
when she passed away.
i love having these dishes,
since that's what i remember most about her.
she was always feeding somebody.
i also got her sewing box.
she was always asking me to thread her needles for her.
i miss you grandma!!
this morning's interview went well.
i think i handled the interviewer *exceptionally well*.
(really, who tells an interviewee that you have beaten a horse before?!)
and isn't a-busch synonymous with Clydesdales?
the job i interviewed for requires two interviews.
so i passed his screening process and should
hear from the other dude in 3-7 days.
65, kimmyk: it was the car wash. love watching water patterns.
eve (colleen?): thanks, i think it's the toesies that helped!!
Thursday, January 24, 2008
ever feel like you can't focus?
i thought i got enough sleep
i overslept this morning.
did the school run in my pjs.
thanks for all the encouragement
i really needed it!!
i have an interview tomorrow
i'll let you know how it goes.

i have a jar of these on my desk.
love the color and
love the candy
love the fact that eating one
makes me feel okay
about quitting my job.
i don't understand how human beings
can feel entitled to speak unkindly
to someone on the other end of a
i was in tears last night
and my stomach was in knots this morning
over a few unkind words
that went straight to my heart.
be kind to one another, peeps.
you have no clue the damage
your words can do.

yeah, okay just making sure i wasn't
like the teenagers thought.
we were on our way to austin on sunday
when we stopped at valero to get some
snackies and drinks.
on the way to the checkout counter
i saw a package of all green m&ms (!!)
i was so excited, i bought 6 bags.
the teens had no clue why.
and so i had to ask how they'd never heard
about the green m&m theory.
i guess i shouldn't be too surprised
since they say "throwed" not "tanked".

a made up family name to describe
a fried egg inside a hole in a slice of bread.
i started making this in england when
my kids needed to eat protein but only wanted milk
i asked the moms in my local mom & tots
what they fed their picky eaters.
they told me about toast soldiers
(but that was too gross for me, since the egg white is still gooey-ick)
and they told me about sunshine toast.
only they called it bulls-eye.
my kids never called it that.
they thought it looked like sunshine in their toast.
a family word was born.
on to more important topics.
does anyone else know about these?
what do they mean to you??
i'll tell you why i'm asking tomorrow.

pretty optimistic when there's a
full tumbler of coffee next to me.
i start training for a new job tomorrow.
i have no clue if i remembered to even share
that i got a job...did i mention that??
yeah. just part time for now.
it's going to be good experience at the very least.
i hope i like it and i hope i excel at it
i need to build up that resume.
and i can't wait to wear big girl clothes
to somewhere other than church.
so that's a bonus.
menu this week:
re-runs (yest bbq burgers and fixins)
penne pasta, salad, garlic rolls
chicken and rice bake
chicken strips and baked sweet potato
365: sometimes it't not even worth it to use the coupon
if HEB has a sale on what i need.
kate: missed ya too. it wasn't that i wasn't reading, i just never knew what to say!! :)
dani: i remember that about oz. but i think since you guys have go-lo and bi-lo it evens out.
jen: it was heaven. i even napped a bit!!
kimmyk: i haven't heard of double coupons here. i'd dig that though!!

today's pic is a peek at one of the projects
i am making for bekahboo's room.
which is yesterday's pic.
we are re-painting.
let me just say red is one hard paint to cover.
we only got the priming done yesterday.
but i am super excited about the re-do.
i'll show pics (of course) as it progresses.
thanks for all the super nice words regarding
my LOs. kimmyk i think i've fixed the problem.

the photos while we post. we must cut and paste html.

pasta, garlic bread and green salad
baked chicken with steamed veggies
tuna salad on bagels with simple green salad
grilled chicken and white rice with peas
re-run night. :)
