The episode.

While browsing the Food Network's page for the show I may be on I seen that the Brain Freeze episode will air on Tuesday Aug 12th, at 9:00 pm EST. That is the question that I have the sinking feeling that will feature me, myseld and I. I mean the title of the episode itself is Brain Freeze. I will have to set my dvr. It is shown at other times during the week as well if you miss it on Tuesday. So be on the look out for the crazy lady with her thumb in her mouth.

I may be going blind.

I got a case of the munchies and decided I wanted a salami sandwich, quick easy, no mess. I go to the fridge take out the meat and Mircale Whip, (because a sandwich just isn't a sandwich without the Miracle Whip). So I cannot find the loaf of bread I just bought. It is not on top of the mircowave where I normally keep it. I am searching high and low and it is nowhere to be found. Not on the kitchen table, nor the stove top. Not on top of the fridge nor in the pantry. It was not on the floor I looked just in case one of the girls decided to have a piece. Now I am a tad disappointed since I was so looking forward to my sandwich. So I put everything back in the fridge, closed it and turned around. Then I see it, clear as day right dab smack infront of me on the counter. How I missed it I have no clue. I stood right infront of it not two minutes before and did not see the bread there. Old age must be setting in...that or I am so tired that I am not thinking straight.

Happy Birthday to me....NOT!

Well yesterday was my birthday, turned 32 and what a sucky day it was. An overcast day with periods of rain all day long. Ed had to work "C" shift that is 2:30pm to 10:30pm, add two hours to that for travel time to work. So I was alone here almost all day with two miserable, crabby kids who were driving me up the wall. When Ed got home from work he was like "can you rub my arm? My back?" etc... Ummm hello it is my birthday I need the rub down. I had the day from hell with the girls, I actually cried because they were being so miserable, and mean. They just did not get along at all and were constantally fighting. I would of drunk myself stupid had I not been alone with them. It was one of those days. So I spent my birthday playing refree and cleaning up the house, only the things I did doesn't really make the house look and cleaner. Cleaning the aquarium, scrubbing the tub and toliets, my favorites jobs (rolls eyes).

I'm baaaaaack

I am back, there really is no place like home. I had a great time. Young Frankenstein was a fablous show! I'd see it again in a heartbeat. I did go and was on the Today Show. I even was able to get Al Rokers and Natalie Morales autographs. I seen Peter Gallagher on 7th Ave. And appartently there was some music star that I didn't recognize that I said hello to on the steps of Planet Hollywood, don't ask me who it was. Some hip hop or rap guy. There were a bunch of girls scouring their purses for pens saying OMG its whatever his name was.

I may be on the Food Decetives on the Food Network on the 29th I believe it is. I was stopped in Central Park by a film crew, was asked a bunch of questions and my gut is screaming that my answer to the "brain freeze" will make the cut. I mean they asked me to do it three times. I had to sign release forms and everything. I wish I had a dvr. I can just seeing it end up on You Tube too. Oh my, why did I do that??!!

Please tell me I am not the only one with

a husband that does not know how to tie a windsor knot, or any knot for that matter. I have to do it for him. Not that I mind but he doesn't even want to learn. UGH! Men.

Start spreading the news, I'm leaving Thursday

Holy hell! Did time fly I will be leaving for the Big Apple Thursday morning. That means I'll start packing tonight. LOL. I hope that we have good weather. My first trip to New York Ciry I am so excited. Only took me almost 32 years to get to that part of my home state. I'm about 420 miles or 676 km away, it always amazes me when people think that I am a hop, skip, and jump away. New York is a pretty big state. I need to start packing for it too uhg. Yes I am one of those people that need to be packed a days before I leave. I could never ever pack the night before a trip, just one of my little quirks. Well the laundry is calling my name. Got to get to it.

Out of pratice

Yesterday I got a call from my sister telling me that she is not feeling so well. She asked if I could come and watch my four month old nephew for awhile so she could get some sleep. I told her no problem, I had my girls skip swim lessons for the day, at the time it was 67 degrees out so I wasn't going to take them anyways. I stopped at Wegman's near her house and bought the fixings to make her a pot of homemade chicken noodle soup.

No sooner than I got there did she go upstairs and fall right asleep. My poor sis. My girls and Josh had a good time together. Madeline just adores him. So I make the soup for her and woke her up a little after 5 pm. She ate a bowl as did my girls and myself. She was still looking real tired so I asked her if she wanted me to take him home with me and I'd keep him overnight for her. She said sure (I did a little happy dance inside), so Josh came to Auntie Neen's for the night.

He is such a good boy, but I forgot a lillte something. That kids sometimes wake up in the middle of the night. It was my own fault really staying up until almost 2 am. That is why it hit me so hard when at 4:30 am I heard a little cry. But a quick diaper change and a 4oz bottle that he sucked down. A good burp and with the help of Mr. Seahorse he was back out in no time at all. My girls never really did that at all, the night I brought Madeline home from the hospital she slept from 10:30 pm to 6:30 am. They have always been good sleepers until recently, summer vacation and all.

I so love having him here it is nice outside right now so I think I'll take him for a walk with Madeline. Ed is out with Lillian running some errands.

yummy yummy

I am doing NaBloPoMo challenge again this month, the topic is FOOD! So be sure to check out my food blog everyday for a new recipe. Just click on the link Good Eats Swee Treats and Eye Candy. I hope that you find something you will enjoy.

Pool time

Swim lessons started on Monday here. The girls are loving it, they'd stay at the pool all day. Not that I mind it knocks them out. I already have a nice tan going just rom the past two days. This morning was miserable, I hate the fact that they still have class when it is raining. There has to be lightening for the pool to close. So there we were in the rain, (the umbrella provided little shelter for me)having class. Lillian got out of the pool early because she was so cold. The poor girl was shivering, I was rubbing her arms and legs trying to warm her up. Madeline just thought it was cool and wanted to stay. She is a fish, well they both are really. Madeline likes the deep end now and I swear she is going to give me gray hair. I cannot be in the deep end with her and in the shallow with Lillian at the same time. Nothing like hearing "Mom look at me!" while holding Lillian in the shallow end only to see her doing a cannon ball into 8 feet of water.

buzzy day....bad bee

What a long day we have had here. I made some goodies for the party we are going to tomorrow. (My famous taco dip included, see my food blog for the recipe). As I was starting to mix the base I hear a blood curdling scream from outside and then shreiking. Lillian was stung by a bee. Madeline was freaking out that there was a bee around. It somehow managed to get under her hair. Ed is batting at the bee trying to get it away from Lilly, he finally manages to and it it stunned falling to the ground where he trounced it into mush. I whisk Lillian into the house and pull off the leotard she was wearing searching for where she was stung. Turns out it was 4 times, that friggin bee never lost its stinger! Once on the back, once on the back of her shoulder and twice on her upper arm. My poor baby! I give her some tyelnol, and but some cream on the stings, made that bakng soda paste and placed it onto the affected areas. We got her the ice pack to put on her arm. Madeline is still crying and upset that Lilly got stung. Neither want to go back outside to play at this time. Can't blame them for that though.

An hour or so later Lillian was back to her usual self, we even went and got her some Chinese food for dinner since that is what she said she wanted. After the day she had how could we deny her?
