Woke up still RAINING!!!!!!
Rain Rain Go Away Come Back another day when i dont want to work out..
So currently im sitting on hold with the dentist ppl an it is just beyond me how you cant schedule a time with the dentist an the hygienist on the same day.. how hard is that grrrr. So thankfully tonight I do not have work so my plan is to go tan after work an then go work out… I mean ill already smell lol I love the look of tan but hate how you smell right when you get out of the bed… ewww I have a to do list ok here it is

-Tan
-Work out (I WILL I WILL I THINK I CAN I THINK I CAN)
-Shower
-Paint my toes (serious need of polish)
-Do Dishes
-Clean up living room
-Do laundry
-Make Dinner
-Watch a movie (OR catch up on Gossip Girl an Heroes)
-Read or something of that nature
-Pack tomorrows lunch
Wednesday night I am going to have dinner with my wonderful mom whom I adore I cant wait :) My sister and I currently are not speaking I don’t doubt this will continue much longer.. until she needs my help with prom (I do all her an her friends hair an makeup what not have been since the 6th grade) sooo she’ll come around she just doesnt want to admit she is wrong. I just have issues on how unappreciative she is of other esp. my parents. It really kills me the way she acts towards them . I mean by no means was I a saint um no not at all but I got my wild an crazy side out an I hit rock bottom.. I got back up an it been a rocky road each day but I am such a better person now than I was an that’s all I can ask for. But its to the point where my parentals told me they would rather her go thru the wild an crazy stage I went thru then continue to act how she is acting. She is a really great girl I love her dearly but she is a brat. She wont care about anyone or anything unless it benefits her an it just drives me nutz . She has all these opportunities an such a great life but she just could care less thinking that she deserves everything an more without a care of others… I hope its just a phase lol that’s what I keep telling myself its just a phase she will eventually grow out of it .. I did.. its just nerve racking sometimes. Anyways gotta get back to work.

XOXO

Finally Friday !!!

Worked until noon an then headed to the family that I am sitting for the weekend.



Yea all this for just
2 1/2 DAYS .. yeahhhhhh

Headed out

We started out with lunches and I made myself a nice salad :) YUM



Then we went to mudpie which is like my fav place..I didn’t paint but I helped Noah who had never painted before…


He was nervous the paint would turn him green an he would never be white again lol.

AT MUDPIE

After painting we went home an played some video games while I caught up on some email. Then we went to Joes Crab Shack .. sat right next to the playground.. the kids loved it. When we arrived they just started doin the cupid shuffle ..Maddie started to do it but she didn’t know all the steps I told her id teach her. Dannyboy was late an didn’t end up showing till the end but he made it there… Eventually lol.. I wanted o so badly some fried shrimp … but instead I got the salmon w. apricot sauce, broccoli, and yellow rice. I asked for brown but they didn’t seem to have any which sucked but you cant win them all ya know. Noah got the chicken fingers go fig


an Maddie went outside of the box an decided she wanted to try snow crab.. when it arrived she didn’t understand she thought the crab came outside of the crab not inside… so I did what my mom did until I learned how to crack crab.. I showed her an then cracked them all open enough to get all the meat. We came home in just the nic of time because it started to pour… badly.


mY DINNER .. IT WAS GREAT


We started dancing.. taught the cupid shuffle then we had a dance around the room . Followed by hours of wii games an cookies…

I must admit I had one an snacked on a small handful of these new cheetos … I cant imagine they are great for you but compared to the other cheetos they are a tad bit better. Noah was the 1st one down with a bed time story.. Maddie followed . Danny an I then went to the garage that they had turned into a gym .. I was in a great mood full of energy
