S had a rough night, which I was figuring on since she was so restless going to sleep.  dont even remember all teh time we were up, I'm just doggone tired!
she looks awful too cause she fell face flat on the carport the other day and has a big strawberry/bruise in the middle of her forehead.
she's quite whiney and snotty too. I see another fun day ahead

C has a ballgame tonight as long as the rains holds off. he also has a game tomorrow but will be voluntarily missing that one cause 8th grade commencement is at the same time! the ball league refused to reschedule that game for the 8th graders. how stupid was that?!

so I had plans to go to the movies today with my sis, but they got shot down cause my LOs are sick.  Gav brought home a cough last week and H has it now and yesterday S woke with a low grade fever and this morning G had been trying to toss his juice, along with a low grade fever.
S woke just a bit ago though and the fever is gone and she's eating again (only ate one taco yesterday) and she's smiling and happy, so I think she's back to normal for me. G is sleeping on teh couch though, which is a huge sign he doesnt feel well

yesterday we went to church, amazing we get there relatively on time with my teens and toddlers. cant blame it on K either, its C that gives me grief!

while getting in the truck to go to church yesterday, gavin took G's hat off. G got mad adn banged his head on the truck step. of course it was right on the place he fell this week and scarred his head!  I didnt know it in all the hubub of getting out the door, but later, when C brought him in from sunday school, he said 'ms. amanda said he shoudl go to the ER for his head', I'm like  'his head is fine, all it has is a little red scab' then i lift his hair to see its turned black and blue and is swelled up with a big goose egg!!! ARGH!!!!!! it looks awful!! this kid and his tantrums. UGH! so I had to find out what happened (Garrett said "gavin did it" LOL) and Gav told me what happened. *sigh* explained to Amanda what happened and that his head had NOT looked like that all week. geez.
it looks much better today, the swelling has gone down, but its still all black and blue where he hit it. I hate tantrums. LOL

S woke this morning feeling normal! (she just woke about 30 minutes ago). she seen the pop tart Hunter had and squealed for him to give her some, a good sign! G just woke on the couch (said "I'm done!" LOL) hopefully the anti-nausea meds will help his tummy feel better.

we paid off the suburban today!! sears is paid off too!! Dave Ramsey would be proud of all we've paid off since last July. I'm super proud too! amazed mostly at how far we've come! I've not added up our payoff since 9-06 yet, but I know its ginormous (and embarrassing). our bill stack is blessedly shrinking and I don't often cringe at the mail coming any more. its wonderful how much weight is lifted off when you get out from under debt!
anyhoo, just had to share my relief

it was a good day. got pay offs and recycling done this morning. picked up c from my brothers. came home, got the girls, took mia home then went off w/ k and s.

I started asking K if there was anything she wanted to tell about, new/exciting stuff or anything and that got nowhere  finally I just told her I'd noticed it while doing laundry. she was like "OH, yeah, I forgot to tell you"  LMBO! it started the day they went on their field trip to six flags! only one day and she had her friends 'supplies' to help her out.
so we yakked about it a bit (we've already talked in depth before) and I asked her where she wanted to eat. she took us to zaxbys LOL!
at walmart I got her a new notebook and two pair of leggings, along with hair color (her and C want new highlights) and some more nair (and of course the usual food stuff).
the funniest thing was she didnt want to *look* at the pads. reminded me of a guy trying to buy them for his wife. I'd tell her what I preferred and was trying to explain the sizes adn she'd glance then look away down teh aisles while saying "sure, that's fine. uh huh. no, that's what I want. ok"  too funny!

I spent way too much there for the 2nd week in a row. I get over $100 at walmart and I kinda freak

dh worked on the cars today. my passenger window now works! (its never worked since we got teh MIB) he also fixed HIS passenger window AND my little SIL's passenger mirror. something about the passenger sides...

tonight dh and C are watching Taken adn Underworld.

S has been SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooo clingy today. I've hardly gotten to put her down and she hardly goes to anyone else, except daddy. makes it really hard to get stuff done and for one sore arm!
of course we got TONS of compliments on her hair again today. I remember 5, there were probably more

church tomorrow and dont know what else... besides Farm Town :)

so tonight was interesting. when I picked the kids up from school, K told me she had a band concert tonight. ok, thanks for the heads up! LOL! we worked it out though and dh was able to meet us in town after kung fu (K didnt go, took her home to change) and he took the boys to the park and I went to the school. her band (beginning band) only played for about 15 minutes and we stayed for the 7th/8th gr band.
caught up with the boys afterwards and went to zaxbys (kids free night). dh is goign out of town tomorrow to GA til friday. *wah!*

I'm going to my moms in the morning to hang out so probably wont be on much. I'll have to take my puter to check my farm on FB

this coming monday, vicky will be watching the kids for me and I'm going to meet my big sis in the city so we can go see xmen! I'm so excited!!! girls day out!

Obama: No White House Observance for National Day of Prayer


Breaking tradition with President George W. Bush, the Obama administration has announced there will not be a White House observance for the National Day of Prayer this year.

"We are disappointed in the lack of participation by the Obama administration," said Mrs. Shirley Dobson, chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force. "At this time in our country's history, we would hope our president would recognize more fully the importance of prayer."

The White House has indicated it will release a proclamation recognizing the National Day of Prayer on Thursday.

The National Observance will take place from 9 a.m. to noon EDT, as Dr. and Mrs. Dobson, Beth Moore and others gather in Washington, D.C., to pray for America. The event will be broadcast live on GOD TV (Channel 365 on DirecTV), Channel 138 on Sky Angel and online.

r.i.p. Sugar

 I'm upset, mad and wishing I could go hunting for some dogs! two dogs came up and killed one of my kitties earlier. it was a small beagle and a mutt dog. I didnt get to her in time and her lungs were already punctured or crushed cause she couldnt hardly breathe. I held her til she passed on. I hope we can bury her soon, she needs to be with Ms. Tilly and Ms. Callie up under the oak tree in the back.
this was Sugar (her fur was SO soft and snuggly!)
