Are we swimming?

Thanks for the laugh Mr. Bruno.

While at the BBQ competition, Mr. Bruno wears these goggles to keep the smoke from the smoker out of his eyes.

Whatever works.

Nice, Nice, NICE

My whole entire family is laughing their heads off at me.

For the first time in one hundred years many, many months, it rained. Like full on thunder and lightning, windy, downpour rain.

I was scared out of my socks. except I wasn't wearing any

I am not sure why, but I am pretty frightned of thunderstorms.

Crazy I know.

But some certain people really, did not need to laugh at me.

Just saying.

Oh my goodness!

So, I sorta know I am different.

ok. So, I am weird. I know..


I like the Ped-egg.... I don't know. I just think it is fascinating that there is a way to scrape off all of your dead skin cells.


I still do like the ped-egg, BUT, tonight, I discovered this.

Avon Foot Works. Double Action Sloughing Cream... Basically I am posting this for cough, Karen... errrm.

But, you ALL should seriously look into this cream. Just put it on your caluses or rough skin (like on your heels) on your feet, let it sit for 1 minute, and massage it in or wash it off. Instant results. Not even kidding! It seriously made my night!

It is the little things, yes indeed!

And I am...

Whoo hoo!

haha.. ahhh..

As I was driving home from the dentist, my car said 107 degrees. It isn't your imagination. It IS hot!

I hear this weekend we are going to be below 100...

I will need a sweatshirt. Brrr...

Less than 12 hours and I report for work. I am praying we WILL go to the Sprinkler park. I haven't been there and hopefully I can cool off a bit too while playing with the kiddos. I'd be nice to get out of the house for a while. The only way you can actually go outside these days is if you go a place with AC or somewhere with water.

Just saying!

Brush those teeth!

I seriously totally forgot that I have a dentist appointment today. Whew! I am so glad that my mom wrote it on her calendar and actually looked at it today!

I so hope I don't have any cavitys. Haha.

We will see, I spose!

So, my family went home yesterday.

Yesterday was Kathleen's birthday. We watched movies, and went to Sonic.

Today, I have to babysit and I was up way too early.

I am tired.

My room is a mess.

I don't know why either. Because, I never have my room messy.

At least never THIS long.

like 2 weeks long

It is too hot outside to do anything but swim.

My aunt said last night, that it was 60 degrees.

I don't know the last time I saw that number.

I would really like too.

We have had 62 days this SUMMER over 100 degrees.

We broke a record for the hottest summer in like 10 years or something.

I think in 7 days, It will be the hottest year... oh who knows.

I don't watch the news anyways.

It's HOT.

I should stop complaining now, and you know.

Clean my room. or something.

Beans, Beans, the musical fruit....

Oh, nevermind...

Quick comment real quick... My aunt, will eat green beans and loves them in fact yet will not eat any other bean on the planet. Not even try the yummy chili we made tonight. Any ideas why not? Just crazy if you ask me.

So, anyways.

As you know, we used to live on 10 acres in the country and had a huge garden. With lots of green beans. So we canned them. Well, they lasted for a while. But finally, we ran out. My grandparents and aunt drove down here with 2 crates of green beans, so we snapped, and snapped and snapped beans and then canned them!

We had a fun time with them! Kathleen and I don't mind snappin them, we enjoy watching a movie, while snapping.

oh yes, and the doggies love beans too!

So, we ended up canning 49 quarts. ;-)

Takeeee me outtt to the Balll Gameee...

Oh, you know you're singing along!

I had never been to a baseball game before, so when my dad came home from work with two free tickets, I jumped at the chance to tag along.

I really had a good time, even though I didn't know much of what was happening.

It was a beautiful night to go. Omar proposed to Letty on the jumbotron, and bats (real live ones, not the baseball bats) were flying all around our heads, and Round Rock won! A great night indeed!

Daddy and Me

It was a fine time!

Just hangin out

We are watchin a movie, Kathleen, Karen, and I.

We went to RedBox today, and got two free movies. We are watchin this one right now.

Karen got her laptop in the mail today for her birthday. She is playing on that now, we will see if she can stay awake to watch it all :-)

I am going to try to upload some pictures, and catch up with some stuff!

I am extremely happy right now

UPDATE And, I must have pulled some muscle in my neck while tossing and turning, becasue now it is extrememly uncomfortable. I really will stop this pity party now.

So, here I sit at 4:45 in the MORNING. HOW EXTREMEMLY ANNOYING that I cannot sleep.

I woke up at 3 for some ABSURD reason. Why may you ask? I have no clue. I am beyond exhausted. Maybe just overtired?

To top it all off? The few hours that I did sleep, I must have been quite restless. Wanna know a huge pet peeve of mine? ALL OF THE SHEETS COMING OFF MY BED. Yes, that is what happened. Very joyfully, I remade the bed, and tried to go back to sleep. After a half an hour of tossing and turning, I turned to Home Shopping Network. Why? Becuase there is nothing but infomercials on at this time, because normal people sleep at this time.

My gramma on the other hand? She ENJOYS this part of the day. Nooooo thank you. I don't like NORMAL morning hours. Imangine how HAPPY I am going to be in the morning. Ok, I will really work on the attitude. What else is there to do now?

To top it allll off, I got hit pretty hard by allergies this week for some reason. I have been coughing up mucus. It has been pretty fun being all stuffed up, I do have to say.
