Disclaimer: I suck with car controls

After months of frustration with A/C in the Cadiliac. I have been so damn hot. I finally I get the instructions for the just push the snow button. Ok got it.

Until I take a closer look. Snow looks alot like sun. Hmmmmm

No wonder I am so hot,

Even more blue

IT Blue , or as Shannon describes it saphire blue. IT's how we fit it

Daughter of the year award

Tonight at 1030 PM, way to tired to do anything I am sitting on the couch talking to Tarzan and REM. I tell them both I need good blog material and I am too tired to do anything funny.

I pull out my blackberry and start laughing at myself for this picture I took earlier today. I was so amused that I "caught" to IT guys taking pictures of each other. Even more amused that my discrete photography was of photography.

Tarzan looks at it and says, "Who is that". I respond, "I don't know. Suzanne knew and was amused". Tarzan, "hmmmm, not that funny"

REM asks to see the picture and responds with fully belly laughter. "It's funny huh REM". "No mom I can't see it. I just wanted to make you happy"

Love tank filler for sure.

So proud


Both REM and CEM are going to the Finals on Thursday!!!!!

REM won 2nd place in freestyle and third in backstroke inthe Semi-Finals
CEM won 5th place in breaststroke in the Semi-Finals

All Hands

Here's what you are missing if you are not in Phoenix for the PSC All Hands Call. Diane in the front row, running to computers. Kevin close by in case something fails (not even daring to move because he may get called on at an awkward moment). And me on Jolt as I try to shove a 1.5 hour meeting into 1 hour.

Who bought them the first time?

MJM, REM and I took a trip to Goodwill today. We found 3 shirts, 3 pairs of shoes and a suit jacket that I owned 2 weeks ago. We purchased 4 pairs of jeans, a skirt, a necklace, 4 pairs of shoes, a suit, 3 shirts.

And we laughed at the grandpa and grandma. Wondering who bought them the first time around. And what was the story about donating them.

(we also saw the cutest worker of all times as he gawked at MJM)

Chicken Wings

So not my girl

So my girl!!!!

House gone Wild

Laundry out of control
Dishes out control

French Toast - Megan Style

Megan advice: put the eggs in the blender so that the white parts get blended. works like a charm.

Our $4 Contribution

There is a tradition at the restaurant in Tortilla Flats to put a signed $1 bill on the wall. (its the only restaurant, the town is only 1/4 mile long). So we all decorated/defaced the $1 bill.
(it is estimated that there is onver $100 k on the walls)

BTW How great is the personality of each child? Gotta love CEM's several pseudo personalities
