Now, the holidays are approaching, the kids are back in school and it seems as if more of than not, I have TONS to say. My oldest is a senior, did I mention that? I am sure I have. She is going through all the motions of preparing to graduate and then move on to college. college! How is that possible? I still remember her being 6 lbs 4 oz and 20 inches long. Who gave her permission to grow up and turn into a lovely lady? Can I sue? Its not fair. I am not ready for this.
Danny and AJ are shaving.. WHAT?!??!?! I remember when they were flushing stuff down the toilet (I swear it was like 12-13 years ago not last week!) and now they are shaving. Danny ditched us on Halloween to go watch a girl play soccer. What am I doing wrong? I got ditched for a girl?!?! sighs. AJ who used to be my sweet lovable guy has turned into a real jerk as of late. I know part of it is teenage boy, but geesh I hope it passes fast.
Mary. Wow. 11 year old. hormonal.. aka bitchy. enough said right? David loves kindergarten and I had to break his heart today and tell him he had to stay home today (something about vomiting at 4 am that makes me pretty sure they do not want him in school ya know?) fun stuff. really fun.
Chucks working his butt off at school right now and work. Somedays I see how exhausted he is but other days I think I see the energizer bunny chasing him down the hallway..drum and all. He just keeps going and going.
As for me, I am as big as a house right now.. ok or I feel that way, I have to do something but I don't know where to start. And why start now with the holidays staring me down? Well, because if I don't I won't. I know me. So insert one last party weekend, Monday starts the diet. This time it has to work. It just has to! .
Ok there I caught everyone up, tied up with a neat bow, speaking of bows, I am running a blog contest about two blogs down. Enter it. even if you don't have a daughter or grand daughter someone you know has a little girl who will love this bow. Have a great day!

Giant Jellyfish Sink 10-Ton Fishing Boat
A 10-ton fishing boat was sunk and its crew thrown into the sea by the giant jellyfish they were gathering off the coast of Japan.
The three fisherman were hauling a net full of the gigantic creatures, known as Nomura's jellyfish when the weight of them caused the boat to capsize, a story by the Telegraph reported. The fishermen were rescued by another fishing boat.
Nomura's jellyfish are known to be the largest in the world, growing more than 6 and-a-half feet in diameter and weighing as much as 450 pounds. Nomura's jellyfish can be found in the seas between China and Japan.
And 6 and a half feet and 450 pounds?!?!? holy big jellyfish batman!! I mean, if there are creatures out there that can flip a boat are we sure we wanna mess with these guys?
And does this really mean that Spongebob and Dory were the two bravest ones out there?
Things that make you go hmmm. but as for me until I am sure that dude is not in my water I will stick to the concrete beach.
***warning this notice is subject to change next year when it is hot and the pools are not yet open***

This feeds our princess obsession (and its PINK!!)

I did not watch with joy as my husband spoke to his birth mother after 21 years, it did not bring a tear to my eye to see him reconnect with her because it was just plain awesome. Nope not me.
I did not take a princess, black cat, Mr Incredible, a pirate and a Gothic tinkerbell out trick or treating because one of them is 18 and surely I would not allow her to still trick or treat.
I did NOT under any circumstance root for the New York Yankees to win their World Series games because that is like rooting for the Cowboys.. blech patooie . Iam after all a Mets fan and a good self respecting Mets fan would never root for the New York Yankees.. well unless they are playing the Phillies. :o)~
I did not enjoy a break from football this week after watching the Redskins fall apart and realizing that we are probably looking at a 2-14 season.
I did not wrestle David's Mr Incredible Mask out of his backpack today because what kind of a mom would have to wrestle a mask after Halloween out of someones backpack.
I did not confiscate all the candy when it entered the house and sort it out into 10 separate ziploc gallon size bags!
I did not cringe thinking of the dentist who is probably planning his retirement thanks to my kids teeth (which is why I hid the candy in the first place)
I did not enter day five of a headache today.. with no end in sight and realize a little bit ago that it is probably blood pressure related.. dammit.
I did not find an adorable puppy in front of walmart and scoop her up and take her home because she was deserted. :o( She has not since taken over every family members heart because she is quite frankly adorable :o)~
And finally, I did not miss a whole month of blogging without a single excuse except I really had nothing to say. Hopefully I will get some inspiration..soon.
So what have you done? Not done? Go on tell me! And please pray for Mr Stellan who is in the PICU :o(
