Time flies

Wow it is the last day of September already. The year is passing by so very fast. I can hardly believe that in just two days my wedding anniversary is here again. Nine years together as husband and wife. This year we are planning on going out since last year that day was a chemo day. Well not going out until Saturday my wonderful aunt asked if she could take the girls that weekend. She didn't need to twist my arm to say YES! My aunt and uncle want to take them to the Great Pumpkin Farm and have bought them a Hallowen movie, Monster Squad that they are planning on watching. They should have a blast. Lillian just adores my uncle and has him wrapped around her little finger. He just eats her up and thinks she is the cutest thing ever. I think of all the neices, nephews, great nieces and nephews that hands down she is his favorite.

Wii Fit

Lucked out while I was at the store, a shipment of Wii Fits came in. I managed to snag two of them, that is the limit you could buy. I was thinking about saving it for Christmas for the girls but figured that I'd enjoy using it as well so I surprised them with it. Let's say that when it came time to go to dance class a fight was put up today.

So after we came home and I shipped them off to bed mommy had fun playing with it. I have to say I really enjoyed it and was shocked when I looked at the clock and an hour had past already. I had to laugh when I tried doing the yoga poses, now I have never done yoga in my entire life and when my "trainer" was telling me that I had excellent posture and I nearly laughed my ass off when the results came on the screen as Yoga Trainer. Beeginners luck? I managed to unlock 4 new exercises too. I really think that this is a "workout" that I can keep up. I actually cannot wait for the girls to go to school tomorrow so I can play some more. :) I wonder if it really is a legit thing. Hope so.

I am so shaking right now, I am thrilled beyond belief. I just checked my e mail and seen a notice from Shea's Performing Arts Center letting me know about a priority ticket offer for RENT. Now if you know me you know that I LOVE this musical, it is one of my favorites. I have the movie and watch it all the time, my girls know the entire score to this show as well. I'd get weird looks when my toddler would belt out lines like, "We raise our glass you bet your ass" or "to leather, to dildos" To make things ever better Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp who originates the roles on Broadway and in the movie are in the cast! I could just die! Of course I bought Ed and myself tickets right away, I got us in row K. So Jan. 17th you know where I will be. :)

ring ring FP calling

I am so happy Fisher Price called me today and asked for Lillian to come toy testing on Monday! It's been awhile since she has been there. An easy $25 bucks for 30 minutes of "work". I love it when they call to use my girls, love it even better when they get called for the photo shoots. Nothing beats seeing your babies on boxes or in print ads.

On a side note the Ghost Hunters episode on tonight was based in Buffalo again! I love it when they come to my area. I'd so love to be able to go with them on one of their hunts. I have always been interested in this field even as a young child.
This area was the birthplace of the Spiritualist movement and has a long history of paranormal phenomenon.

My husband the dick!

Funny how fast a sure thing can turn into not until the Buffalo Bills win a Superbowl!

Thanks to Molson Canadian it will be a LONG time before he gets any. Molson is a very popular Canadian beer in case you are wondering that recently launched an Answer Honesty ad capaign. answer Honestly is basically a this or that type of question. My label tonight read...Answer Honestly would you prefer...
To give up sex forever
Give up watching hockey forever?

Would you know he turned bright red and refused to answer he question. Stammering all the time. Making up a bunch of other senarios about the sex part. Dipshit would rather watch hockey than have sex. Well fine I say, he can have his hockey as long as I have BOB. :)

NaBloPo Sept Challenge day 16

Had a cup of soup for lunch today. Sometimes it just really hits the spot.

Can I get a WOOT WOOT!

I was in Walgreens not to long ago when my cell phone rang. It was my aunt telling me that Game Crazy just called her and told her that they got in a shipment of Wii Fits. (She was on a waiting list for one.) So I hightail it out of the store an dash over to the video game store. I managed to be able to pick up two systems. Now I am just torn about opening it now or saving it for Christmas. LOL! I am hoping to be able to sell the other on ebay.

Madeline is going to be so excited! She really wants this.

Ahead of the game

Yuppers I am, today after school I took the girls to get their Halloween costumes.
Lillian picked out the Spanish Princess one. (I swear she is so not my kid when it comes to the best holiday of all time).

Madeline, the child after my own heart has decided to go with this, incorporating her love of dance into her costume this year. (She will be wearing a flesh colored bodysuit/ leotard under it, I am not crazy). She wanted to be a ballerina, but not a pretty ballerina, a dead one. So I'll do her make up to give her that goth, corpse look. She thinks her dance teacher will love it at the Halloween party.

NaBloPo Sept Challenge day 15

Today my lunch cost me a whopping 50 cents. I stopped off at the fruit stand and got myself a HUGE red pepper yum! Took it home washed it, sliced it and devoured it. Red peppers are my absoloute FAVE! I hardly ever bought them in the grocery store though because they are always so expensive. I bought another one that I will eat as a snack later on tonnight, I don't think I could hold off saving it for lunch tomorrow.

Wednesday, September 10, 2008


Today Madeline had her first ballet lesson, she was so thrilled that she is now old enough to take it at the dance studio she goes too. The owner starts them at age 7, she thinks that the younger kids would not do so well with all the time spent on the bar. I totally agree with her, I don't think there is any way that Lillian would or could stand it at 4.

So after class she come bouncing up the staris does an arabesque and tells me that I need to turn our basement into a ballet studio complete with bar and the wall of mirrors."Please mommy, please mommy, PLEASE!!" I think she likes it. There are 2 other girls in her class, Miss Theresa her teacher told me that hip-hop class has stolen a lot of the girls away from ballet. I am so not ready to see my baby girl up on stage poppin' and lockin' and moving in ways waaaaaaaaaaaay to old for her yet.

NaBloPo Sept Challenge day 9

Another day of feeling run down, another day of cup of soup for lunch.

NaBloPo Sept Challenge day 8

I think that I am coming down with a cold here, not feeling so hot. I really wanted some chicken soup so after dropping my oldest off at school this morning I ran up tp the grocery store and got myself some cup of soup, cheap, quick and easy. So that is what I had for lunch today a cup of Lipton Chicken Noodle Cup of Soup. The box cost me $1.74 so you figure my actual portion was around $ .45.

What a nice surprise

Today started dance class for the girls. Madeline's third year of tap and jazz, and Lillian's first. Madeline will also be taking ballet classes those start on Wednesday. Anyways after picking them up from school, going home having them change into their dance clothes, and getting them a quick bite to eat we were off. While getting ready for her first class, getting reacquainted with some familiar faces meeting some new ones a very familiar one enters the room. My sister in law, she signed up her daughter for dancing lessons too, so her daughter and Lillian are in the same class! I love it I am so very excited for this year now, Lilly and Dakota love playing together and do it so well. Plus this means only one recital to go to (hee hee)

Mommy lost

Ok I dropped off Lilly at school a few minutes ago, today she is there all by herself for the full amount of time. Sigh, it is too quiet here. I wonder how long it will take me to get used to this. It feels like something is missing here. I don't like this feeling.

NaBloPo Sept Challenge day 4

I was a good girl today. I stopped off at a local fruit/ vegetable vendor this morning and I got fruit and vegetables for my $5 I managed to get 8 apples, 6 oranges, a bunch of bananas, 3 red peppers, and a honeydew melon. I had an apple for my lunch, not much but enough to fill me up.
