Using the Potty, With A Toddler's Help!

Trying to potty with my 29 month olds help is almost like trying to use the auto-flush toilets in stores. The potty flushes when he thinks it needs to, whether I agree or not. Nothing in this world like your butt getting a "shower" while the rest of you remains dry. Luckily, I have managed to get somewhat used to this sensation. I have tried going potty without him, but somehow he always manages to find me!! :)

Rude people

Westboro Baptist Church. These people give a whole new meaning to rude, and disrespectful. These are the people who think it's okay to protest at military funerals. These people need to get a grip, or get a life, and get over themselves. Protesting military funerals is not going to stop joining the military. Protesting at Ronnie James Dio's memorial service is not going to accomplish anything, other than make a lot of people mad. Just because he was in Black Sabbath does not mean he was into devil worshiping. People need to get off their high horses.

Let these people rest in peace. I hate seeing these people protesting at military funerals. These people give their lives to protect us, and the country we live in. Makes me sick that people can disrespect them like that.

Dennis Hopper had died at 74!

Hollywood must say goodbye today to a true star. Dennis Hopper has passed away at 74 from Prostate Cancer. RIP Dennis Hopper.

New Season of Hell's Kitchen Starts 6/1/2010!

I am so ready for this. I love any and all things Gordon Ramsey. I have watched Hell's Kitchen from Season 1. I watch all of his shows. Even those on BBC. Gordon Ramsey's The "F" Word is cool. Kitchen Nightmares is great, but gross for the most part.

Tuesday night will find us in front of the TV, waiting to see how long it will be in the show before he cusses at someone. With Chef Ramsey it's not "IF" he will cuss. It is most definitely "WHEN".

Time for a book review!!!!

I am almost done with Kindred in Death, by J. D. Robb. For those of my readers who are unfamiliar with her. J.D. Robb is the pen-name for the one, and only Nora Roberts. The "In Death" series is one of the most well thought out, put together series of books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I enjoy these books enough, that I have even recommended them to my husband. Now we argue over who gets to read the new one first. Normally, I let him win. Now on to the book.

As usual when I pick up one of these books this one was a page turner. It is exciting to see what Lieutenant Eve Dallas, and her team are going to get into this time. With help from Roarke, her husband, and civilian consultant this book is amazing from start to finish. I can't wait for the next one to come out.

Hollywood loses another actor!

Gary Coleman had passed at 42, from a brain hemorrhage. My thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family.

This is just to say that migraines suck!! I suppose by now I should be used to them, doesn't mean I have to like them. Believe me when I say I don't. I have tried everything I can think of to get rid of this one and nothing seems to be helping. Plus Chase went to sleep at 7:30pm, so I know he will be up later and wired for sound! However the good thing to that is he will let me sleep late tomorrow, which is never a bad thing.


It has come to my attention that my son's puppy was apparently dropped on her head at least once as a smaller puppy! For some reason this dog thinks the sun rises and sets in my son's butt!! He plays a little rough with her, and he shrieks, you know being a typical toddler. Well she gets tired of him and goes to mind her own business. After about 5 minutes if he has not found her, she goes looking for him. Now me personally, if I am being bothered enough to go hide, I am not going to look for my tormentor. Not this dog, she has to be right there with him. It is nice to see how they have bonded though. At least when he's not jealous that is!

My hard working hubby!!

I just wanted to make this post to show off my husband's accomplishment. As my readers know we spent 5 days in Destin, FL., thanks to my husband's company. He earned the trip by winning a contest his company held. I just wanted to take a minute to brag about the great guy I married, and show off his certificate!!!

Back from Vacation

The trip was absolutely amazing. We stayed at the Hilton in Sandestin, FL. It was wonderful. We met some truly wonderful people. I hope we have the opportunity to do it again someday. I will have to add pictures later. Also, we had family come spend the better part of Sunday with us.

Mother's Day.

I got to spend Mother's Day, with some very special people in my life. My husband, son, and my in-laws. We all had a really great day. My hubby and father-in-law worked on 2 of their vehicles, and 1 of ours. So now I have ice cold air conditioning in my Bravada.

Now trying to get some of the little stuff done before we go out of town. Also, trying to make sure Chase has everything he will need for his trip to Nanny and Papa's.

I called the Spa earlier, and went ahead and made the appointment for my massage. I am so looking forward to that, I've never had a massage before.

Homemade CheeseSteak Sandwiches

Tonight we decided to try something new. We made homemade CheeseSteak sandwiches. Some round steak, bell-peppers, onions, little spice, Velveeta cheese, and milk. Cook steak, bell-peppers, and onion. Warm up Velveeta with milk. Stir until creamy. Put sandwich rolls on plate, top with steak, veggies, and pour cheese on top. Enjoy. We all enjoyed it very much.


Iron Man 2

So we went and saw this movie last night for my hubby's birthday. It was an awesome movie. Chase was wonderfully behaved through the entire movie. He fell asleep about 20 minutes before the end of it. Which turned out to not be a good thing, since he was up until almost 1am. At least he was good for the movie though.

Now I have to take a minute to vent about a pet peeve. Today my peeve is people saving seats at a movie theater. Don't get me wrong, I completely understand saving them if someone goes to get popcorn, or goes to the bathroom. The people I mean are the people who try to save seats for people who are not at the theater. If you bought the person a ticket, by all means save them a seat. However, if you did not buy them a ticket, they didn't buy a ticket early and go somewhere, or things of this nature then they DO NOT deserve a seat. Those seats are for people who have actually purchased tickets. We ran into this problem last night, and right before the movie started they got a text from the people who were supposed to be there saying "Oh don't worry about us, they are SOLD OUT!!! People like that just irritate me!!!! Thanks for letting me vent.

Swiffer Wet Jet

We just got one, and I absolutely love it. It got spots off my kitchen floor with no effort whatsoever. It also dries very quickly, which is important with a toddler. He loves to try and run across the floor right after I mop. Kids gotta love them!!

Ready for Vacation!!!

This time next week Jerry and I will be headed for sunny Destin, Florida. My loving husband busted his butt last month to win this trip! I am so excited. Chase will be spending from Wednesday night (5/12) to Monday evening with my wonderful in-laws. I know they will have a blast. I will try not to make myself insane missing him, no promises though. In almost 29 months I have been without him overnight once. So definitely going to take some getting used to. I do think the trip will be great though. Give Jerry and I a chance to spend sometime together!
I will post pictures when we get home, and I will try to be a better blogger and keep everyone posted while we are gone!
