I'm back..I hope :)

The craziness has died down..for a while anyway. This past weekend was part 2 of Old West Cowboy Days in our town and lil a doh doh head I didn't get a single picture but honestly it was because I was incredibly busy. Friday night I organized our "Western Art Show and Reception" it was fun we had of course Western Art...Beer...Wine and lots of food all of it grilled...corn on the cob...steak...shrimp..potatoes...pork...calf fries...and pinapple yummo!!! Lucky for me it was 100 degrees and I didn't feel the need to eat a lot :)

Then Saturday I took Dalton to the all horse parade with my cousins kids it was fun and one of the horses actually got away which all the kids thought was hillarious...thankfully with an all horse parade there's lots of cowboys around to catch him. After the parade we headed to the park where the other events were going on we watched some old west re-inactors...petted some animals...rode a horse and so on.

Lil man and I then headed to our auditorium for sound check for the concert that night or which I was also in charge of. After getting all the singers set up we high tailed it home for a much need nap for Dalton while I cleaned house since it was a disaster after the two weeks we'd had. Nap over go pick up food for singers and head back to the auditorium for a night of awesome Country and Western music.

Please If you like "Country" or "Western" music at all check out Rusty Rierson and RW Hampton they are both amazing and I really enjoyed them as people and as artists and think you will too.

Now on to a short work week before we hit the lake this weekend...I am trying to remind myself not to forget to take pictures.

Sorry folks for those of you who actually read the blog I have been absent :( It's just lack of time I tell ya! The last week we've gone to work gone to swim lessons...taught aerobics gone to this gone to that started a new daycare...went to a Rodeo... gone here and there and everywhere. I kept my lil man out two nights in a row past 10:30 and while I hardly ever do that it did get me a morning of sleeping in until almost 10 a.m. Now that was the best sleep Saturday night we let Dalton sleep with us and for some reason it was actually pretty comfortable in the fact that there was no kicking in the face or knees in our backs and then for all of us to sleep til almost 10 a.m. it was amazing.

As of right now I am at working typing this so for grandparents I promise to have an excitable adorable post about that cute lil boy we all love so much soon....

and for those of you who read and aren't the grandparents I promois to have an excitable adorable post about my cute lil boy soon :)

At This Moment....

I really hate being in advertising sales....

I really hate money....

I really hate bills....

I hate the fact that you have to have money to pay the bills...

I hate the fact that I can't seem to save any money

I don't ever remember anyone telling me how much hard work being an adult really took

I am pouting like a big baby right now.

I think I shall go home and have some wine tonight!!!

Thank Goodness Tomorrow Is Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh no! It's started already!

Over the weekend I took Dalton to the city swimming pool for the afternoon. As we're out in the playing in the water I notice him glance over the side of the pool and then start staring. So I look to see what he's staring at and it's this absolutely adorable little girl probably about his age sitting on the side of the pool putting water into a bucket. She looks up and see's him looking at her and gives this cute little wave...she puts her hand up next to her cheek and wiggles her little fingers at him. I say Dalton you need to quit staring "but I'm just watching her"!!!! OMG!!!! His dad thought he was a ladies man and now my 3 1/2 year old thinks he's one too! I think I have my work cut out for me.

Just arandom thought from the pool. I was not excited about putting on a bathing suit but considering I'm teaching a water aerobics class starting tomorrow it had to be done sometime. But I quickly found out that I guess I don't look that bad or at least I wear a suit that fits my body type, can't say that much for other people there. I guess if you're proud of it flaunt it!!!

I look forward to many more trips to the pool though this summer...lil man really did enjoy himself.

I was just trying to help....when I mowed the grass.

Last Friday I had done a really bone headed thing. Forgot to pay the electric bill when my husband works at the power plant. Now he was really upset because he didn't won't everyone to see his name on the "list". But in all honesty it was really an accident. You see the bill was due the 25th Memorial Day and the week before the only thing I could think of was our bike trip so I just kept putting it off driving around our small little town with the stinkin thing in my purse. Then Sunday when we got back I decided I would drop it in the box Monday am on my way to work...well forgot to do that so by the time I got it there it was late afternoon Tuesday. Well our on top of everything town had already sent out the late notices and guess who opened the mail and saw it...yep not me...hubby. So he was a lil upset with me.

To make up for him being upset I decided that since he was working evenings and 12 hours both days of the weekend. I decided that Friday after work I would mow the grass for him. We have a pretty large yard and a push mower so I'm thinkin I'll do double duty ya know...mow the grass and get out of the dog house and get in a workout.

I let Dalton get out his battery operated Gator and start mowing get the whole back yard done which is the largest part of the whole chore. Great so we stop get a drink of water play with lil man...move Gator and lawn mower to the front yard start up mower and it dies. Out of Gas. So trek back to the back garage get the gas can bring it up front fill up the mower. Prime it and try to start...it won't start so I call Rocky he says "I've never had any problems with it not starting after filling it up" fine okay I'll let it set and cool down. Play with Dalton for 10 min go to start mower and it works mow about 4 rows when I feel my phone vibrating in my pocket I'm expecting a call so I turn off mower and answer the phone then my son proceeds to try and drive out into the street...get him back in the yard go to start the mower...it starts but the wheels are locked up and will not turn at all. So I lift up the mower fully expecting to see like a snake all strangled under neath of it but nothing. Not wanting to call Rocky and tell him I broke his mower I call my cousin who can't offer any help so I call Rocky and tell him...his response "It's never done that to me just leave it and I look at it when I get home" Well he worked until 11 and I wanted to get this job done. I just took the mower and started beating it on the ground did this a few times and felt the wheels unlock. Started it back up and finished mowing and vowed never to mow the yard again!!!!

By the way we didn't show up on the "list" and hubby was in a way better mood when he got home to a nice fresh cut yard and electricity that had been paid for. :)
