hey a title line ??

what's up with that? i never had a title line before. always room for improvement i guess. not much going on these days. not having the kids kinda hurts. i miss them. i have these pictures at work that keep reminding me of how much i miss them. i thought about taking them down today. i won't.
the cicadas r all gone. they were here for about 6 weeks. it was hilarious to see the people in the city walking around with tennis & badminton rackets or umbrellas that circled over their head. one guy had a rolled up newspaper everytime i saw him & continually swung it as he walked. we had members not renew until after they were gone. kinda crazy to freak out over some little bug. they don't eat the entire time they r out. they drink & procreate. thats it. every mans dream right? drink & have sex.
ok. i'm bored. can u tell? i've gotta find something to wake me up. maybe some coffee. later....

and my punishment continues. today being fathers day. i called & wished him a happy fathers day. nothing was mentioned about last weekend or why they didn't bring the kids up. it was just not acknowledged. sweep it under the carpet & go on? like it never happened. ok. i don't see this happening but i'll go with it. for now........

I've started this thing about 3 times & decided before posting to not because i was still so upset that i knew i would regret whatever i said. even though that was actually what i was thinking. my son went on a drinking binge ( of the hidden aliens) last weekend & everyone paid the consequences except him. mommy was pissed & left alone all weekend. the kids stayed with me & daddy went to a friends in our area to stay until monday morning when he decided to sober up & come back to earth. i heard it from both of them all weekend & in the end i'm the bad guy for not putting up with the shit & taking the verbal abuse. so, i look to be punished & not get to see the kids for a few weekends. oh well, it's hard to get things done with the kids around on the weekend. this will give us a chance to get some things taken care of. i know i'm not calling them. yes, i'm cutting my nose off to spite my face but come on!!!! i do them a huge favor taking the kids every weekend & i get no appreciation for it. do u know anyone else that keeps their grandkids every weekend?? then for them to think they can treat me like whatever & talk to me like whatever. well, WHATEVER JUST QUIT!!!!!

lil sis lucked out. they released her with no strings attached. if u ever get into trouble keep in mind that they want the money above anything else. just think. 2 years of hiding & running for a measly $120.00 bucks. crazy, don't u think?
is anyone out there any good with linking in these blogs? i can't, for the life of me, figure out how to add the blogs i read to my links. i know...stupid, stupid, stupid. i enlarged my font. all by myself. i'm sure i could figure out the rest in my spare time. if i had any. of course, i'm lazy too. which means i get home from work, take a shower, watch some t.v. & go to bed. i hate getting up in the morning. i have sleep apnea which means i stop breathing about a hundred times through the night. it causes me to wake up, therefore, not getting much sleep. told u i'm getting old.
our major exhibit opened to the public tonight. of course, it rained. kinda put a damper on the attendance. but all in all i'm sure it went over well. about 20 animatronic dinosaurs showed up & began wagging their tales & showing their teeth. they growl & their eyes move. standing anywhere from 8 inches to 20 feet tall. really too cute for words. u'd have to see it to believe it. one had eggs that was cracking open. one was eating it's prey. there is a dig site as well for the kids. and the souveniers are too cute. we have chocolate eggs that open up to expose baby dinosaurs, stuffed animals, t shirts, books, masks, banks, everything dinosaur. there's a ride that u interact with dino's & come face to face with them. the chair shifts around & makes u feel like u'r moving through them.
i found a sippy cup i just have to have for dom. it has a little container inside the cup that has a tiger & elephant floating in liquid that moves as u turn the cup. he'll love it.

does life ever slow down? i know it never takes a break but why does it always have to be such a fast roller coaster? the kids are growing like weeds & dom actually has conversations with you now. (well 3 word sentences but he gets his point across). he's still a very happy baby. one of his favorite words is 'happy'. he says it in alittle sing song kinda way. 'happy, happy, happy'. so when i get feeling blue i try to remember that & am thankful that i am a part of what makes his little world 'happy, happy, happy! i have my digital camera & plan on posting pics as soon as i figure out how to work it. i just have no time to read the instructions right now. my youngest sis just got herself landed in the county jail. stupid... has anyone ever told you it doesn't pay to run from the law? they do call it the 'long arm of the law' for a reason. after being on probation for 5 years & having her fine payed down to a mere $120.00, she couldn't make it to see her probation officer one day & decided that she was just gonna run away from her problems. the worst part of that was a.) she couldn't get a job because they would have to turn in her social security number. b.) she couldn't afford to feed herself without a job. c.) those she considered friends did everything they could to get her caught. d.) she was forced to basically hide out. i've been there for her as much as possible through all this. her fine has been paid finally. by a new friend she has made that she helped out by babysitting her son. yaay, for new friends. it looks like she may luck out & all they really want is her money. the word is the judge wants to see her in court. but the p.o & the judge has agreed that if the fine was paid they are gonna turn her loose. and after over a year of hiding out all it took was to pay that stupid f*#%ing fine.
daddy, mommy, hubby & i took the kids to the local drive-in this weekend to see the new harry potter movie. it was fun & the movie was well worth the wait. i love the potter stories. i've read all the books several times over. the kids were really pretty good. dom was bored here & there but for the most part he watched right along with us. and of course, ixxie talked alot but we still got to watch. we allowed ixxie to have her first sleep over too. a friends daughter that is a little older likes to momma ixxie & they wanted to spend the night together so we agreed. it was good for her. the one thing i realized is that little girls are very demanding. lots more than little boys. i like little boys better. we kept them busy outside as much as possible but it was still alot of work for hubby & i.
next week we have a graduation to attend. also, a double birthday party. another full weekend to say the least.
oh, i've had an epiphany! i know when i got old. the day i cut my hair short. all that weight gone allowed my skin to all fall forward. from the top of my head to my knees. all of a sudden i have a face full of wrinkles, my boobs reach my navel & i can't even see that anymore!! to all of u that still has long hair--keep it. you'll be glad you did.
ta ta for now...
