Slacker....

on May 23, 2009 - 5:48am

That's me. I didn't catch Good Day LA yet, nor have I bought PBS Soundstage or Chess.
Actually I just bought Chess through the JGStore. Better wait til next payday to get Soundstage.

I'm so excited.....new Josh stuff to watch.

While I was in the store looking....oh....so many cute things.

Schools out....it's going to be a fun summer.

I still grieve that Reagan can't go with us on our trip next week. (She didn't make the grade.) I wish we could just forget about the punishment. See? I'm a lousy parent. I just want to forgive and forget and go have an awesome time. What can I say? She's my kid!!! We can find some other way to punish her.
Well....Robert is still holding to it. He's the stronger one.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Saturday....

on May 18, 2009 - 4:35pm

I drove out to Kingston this morning to feed my parents dog's. Was supposed to go Thursday..........whoops. Sorry dogs.

Anyways......tried to use the key I thought opened their door. Didn't work. So I saw a small opening between the garage and the ground.

I shimmied under the door. When I got halfway in.......I got stuck....parallel between the garage door and the ground from head to toe The dogs were just standing there...not helping me one bit. Probably weak from starvation.

So I started moving side to side trying to make my way under the door. FINALLY.....after laying there for a minute wondering if I should call somebody, I squeezed through, but I was under my Dad's truck. I managed to roll out from under his truck and finally get up.

I tried the door inside the garage going into the house. Didn't work either. Then it dawned on me......I may be using the wrong key.

Doh........I had used the wrong key. All that writhing around on the garage floor was completely unnecessary.

*Sigh*..........

At least the dogs got fed.

What do ya do?

When are we ever gonna renew?
I feel like I'm stealing FOJG. LOL!

Our vaca is coming up the end of the month. ...aaaand my daughter has decided to really try us this school year with her grades. I've shared a little bit on here about it.

We put her on medication to help her and it actually worked, but this past 9 weeks, she has slacked off again.

She has known ever since we booked our cruise in the fall that if she didn't come through on her grades, she would be going to Camp Grandmas while we cruise the Bahamas.

Well......I'll be a monkey's uncle if she hasn't pushed us to see if we really mean it!!!

Robert has been on her all this past 9 weeks to turn in her assignments, etc.

He pulled up her grades online and she had an F, 3 D's and a C.

Monday night we had a family meeting - minus Riley.

Robert sat her down and said once again...."If you don't pull your grades up in the next 17 days, you will be staying at home with your grandma while we are on vacation. I don't care if we have to eat the cost of your ticket."

So.....we shall see.

Honestly......I love the kid, I really do, but this isn't going to ruin my vacation. We are going to go and have fun either way.

I'm sick of talking to her and pleading with her to do better. She's a smart kid....she's got the goods, she just chooses this way.

....and her ass will be on the couch at grandma's out in the middle of Bum Fricked Egypt Tennessee while we are having the time of our lives.

What do you do with a kid like that?

Can't breeve out my nose!!!

Dang these allergies!!!

Well, Adam is safe tonight on Idol and that makes me happy.

I'm off tomorrow and that makes me even happier.

My house is such a wretched pig stye that...I don't even know where to start.
Everywhere I look around here it's unorganized yuck.

I've been taking Riley down to the skatepark here in town so he can ride his scooter. A lot of times he takes his best friend Trent with him. LOL. It's hilarious because when we show up and the older teenagers just sort of grin and bare it. We stay out of their way as much as possible.

We go so often that I'm starting to recognize some of the skater dudes. I just say "Hi, it's us again...we'll stay out of your way."
and they say "It's cool".

Yesterday....I was reeeeally trying to be good, ya know being 41 years old and all. But there were some guys with their shirts off and their long shaggy hair breezing by me on their skateboards.
I just kept saying to myself "Sweet Jesus...I'm not looking at those 6 pack abs.....NO...I'm not watching those pecs."
ROFL.

*sigh*....LOL!!!!
