Ants, ants and more ants!

Danny's mom bought a house here in AZ and hoping to move here sooner than later if her job will allow her to work from home but if not she will move when she retires. So we go out to her property today because she hired some workers to come and clear away all of all the weeds that had accumulated and as we were leaving we saw the biggest ant hole mound ever! Danny took these pics with my cell phone so you can't see the ants or really the hugeness of this hole very well but the first picture is of regular little ant hills and regular size ants and the second picture if of one huge ant hill with ants that look like they are on steroids! I have never seen this in my entire life and they probably have a horse chewed up down in that hole!!

This could be the start of a good thing

We decided last night while shopping at Walmart that we would start potty training Kassidy so we had her pick out some undies, and of course they were Dora. So today she picked the undies she wanted to start with so let's see if this really happens!! I will be so thrilled cuz it will save us so much money and she just looks SO cute!

I decided that we would also potty train Hello Kitty at the same time so as I sat Kassidy on the potty, put Hello Kitty's undies on (they are one of Kassidy's new Dora's) and sat Kitty right next to her to potty also. It is SO dang cute!

K, wish me luck!!!!!


Can you guess what's disturbing about this picture?

I took these pictures yesterday cuz Kassidy got a new pair of glasses. She picked out Dora since that is her favorite friend. She was having fun posing for me and as I'm looking at them later I realize something is happening in one of the pictures so I thought I would post it and see if you can guess what is so disturbing to me about this picture. This is one to save for when she gets older so we all can have a laugh, LOL.


Stupid store cards

I went into CVS Pharmacy yesterday to pick up some more chips cuz we were going to a friend's for a bbq and swimming and didn't know she invited 2 other families so since I was in charge of chips I had to go get some more. She told me that CVS had a sale on Lays if you buy one you get one free. So great it's on the way to her house. I go in, get my 2 bags of chips and get to the register and she asked me, (now keep in mind that this is the SHIFT SUPERVISOR that's ringing me up) if I had my card and I said no (because like I'm going to carry around EVERYONE's stupid card on my key chain) so she asked me my phone number and it didn't come up in the system so I asked her if she can look it up any other way and she says no. So I say to her, I thought the chips were buy one get one free (because they didn't ring up that way) and she says really let me go check (again, this is the SHIFT SUPERVISOR and the chips are right in front of her with signs), she comes back and says you're right but since you don't have your card you don't get the discount so I'm like, you've got to be kidding me right? She says no so I say ok then, I don't want your chips cuz that's the only reason why I came here and I know I filled out for a card. So then she takes hers and swipes it and says we aren't supposed to do that but I'll do it for you. Ok, I say, thank you so much, that was really nice of you (but you know I'm thinking, k whatever stupid lady). I pay and I'm on my merry way with my bags of chips. So I get in the car and I just sit there for a second cuz I can't believe what just happened! Why in the world do you need a stupid card just to get a discount???? Can't you just walk into the store and get discounts without filling out a card that doesn't do anything but take your time and add more bulk crap to your wallet? I'm so confused! What is the card for? Do you get special priveledges?? NO. Do you get any money back cuz you've spent so much of it at their store?? NO. K, so why then? I guess I've always wondered why you have to have a card to get sales or discounts but when that lady actually told me I couldn't have the discount for the chips cuz my phone number didn't come up I really had to take a moment and get myself together and shake my head.


She learns TOO quickly

...I also teach my daughter bad things.

Today we were driving in the car and usually if someone does something idiotic I start yelling at them and call them idiots. So we are going over train tracks and the lady in front of me, for whatever reason, decides...oh no a railroad tracks, I don't know if my car can make so it I better STOP! So I start yelling at her saying HELLO what in the world are you doing??? As soon as I said that Kassidy yells...IDIOT. Oh my gosh, woops!! Kassidy do what mommy does, Kassidy says what mommy says.


She learns quickly

Ok, I have a smart girl.

I teach her good things.

Let me give you an example...

Danny gets her up in the mornings and the other day while he was getting her breakfast ready she decides she wants to take her jammie top off (they are Dora, everything is Dora) and wants to put a different one on. Not sure why but Danny does it and then she says to him, "have to take bottoms off, they don't match".

I'm so proud of her! :)


New songs for TV commercials

I hate commercials but if you have Tivo or a DVR you get to skip through them but if they changed them up a little and added these songs I just might enjoy watching them!


A little "Merlin" anyone?

Alright, I got an email from a friend about "stuff from the past" and this is one of them! I was cracking up cuz I had forgotten about this little gem of a game and I so remember it but I don't remember how we actually played it. Look how funny it looks compared to what we have now!! LOL


What was your favorite?

K, I know I'm really dating myself but as I was reminicing today I was talking with my sister and she brought up some cartoons we used to watch. Remember the sleastacks from Land of the Lost? So does anyone remember these? :O


Oh my gosh, I'm laughing my head off. I was reminicing this morning and remembered a song that my dad used to play all the time when I was really young and so I was wishing there was a way to put this on my blog and my sister suggested that I try youtube and low and behold...here it is!!! I have a sister named Julie. Has anyone by chance heard this song?


Yo Dog

Alright, here's the thing, I wasn't going to watch AI anymore but it got the best of me and I had to look on youtube to see the performances and I although I agree that David A has a really good voice he's just been pretty boring for me but oh my gosh, this performance last night is awesome! He did this song so well :) So here I am having a dilema within myself because I have watched AI from day 1 and am addicted and now I seriously have to see the performances. AHHHH I hate this cuz they got me and I can't stop watching even as hard as I tried not to. K, I'm not watching the results, my friends will tell me.


Diaper dog

K, Danny and I were sitting here looking at Esther's post about her dog getting underwear and he remembered that when we were in our rental in Mesa we had our dog Cy and we had gotten a free diaper in the mail and since we didn't have kids we didnt' know what to do with it so Danny decides it would be funny to put it on our dog. So...Esther, this is for you!! LOL

Danny's celebrity soulmate

Take the Quiz

My yummy celebrity soulmate

Take the Quiz

Poor little Annie

I was vacuuming and Annie was just laying all by herself on the floor and all of a sudden I started vacumming her up! I ment to go around her, instead of being a normal person and picking her up, and her leg got caught and burned her up. So Kassidy sees it and say's "oh annie, hurt your leg". I said, ya, I accidently vacuumed her up so now when I ask her what happened to Annie's leg she says "you vacuum her". Well at least it was just a burnt leg and nothing serious.

Sleeping Beauty

K, so remember in my earlier blog I was talking about Kassidy coming into our room in the early morning hours? How could you forget since if you have kids you know what I'm talking about :) So, since the last incident it's happened 1 more time and I took her back in her room and told her to stay in bed and don't wake us up and that will make mommy and daddy happy. So she never woke up again but this morning Danny gets up and comes into the TV room and low and behold Kassidy had decided to get out of bed sometime and the good girl that she is, hehe, she decided to sleep on the couch, but really, who knows if she did try to wake us up but didn't succeed?? So of course now that I have this blog thing I am taking pics of everything so Danny decides he's going to take some pics cuz he knows I'm going to post them :) So this is how he found her. Now this is really funny to me, maybe not so much to you but I have to share anyways :)


Funny Cats

Kassidy and I were looking through youtube to find funny cats and we found this one. She was cracking up because of all the funny sound effects!!

And here she comes

K, I guess I have a lot to say today :) So about 2 weeks ago we took down one side of Kassidy's crib to make a little bed cuz I thought it would be cute to see her in a bed. Now as all of you know that have kids it takes a while to make them actually stay in the bed and not get out and ours is no different. It took her a week and finally she decided she wouldn't get out of bed 50 million times and try to wonder throughout the house without us knowing! So 2 nights ago around 2am she woke up crying so Danny decides to bring her into our bed (I told him NO) because he didn't want to deal with it. So she got to sleep with us. I'm like uh, no, we are not starting that routine!! I've heard too many nightmares from friends and I'm not about to go into that part of the world. Then...it happens again last night!!! Around 5am she starts crying so Danny goes in there, picks her up, soothes her and then comes back to bed as she's sceaming wanting to come into our bed. Oh well, cry it out little one. So a couple minutes later she stops crying and I'm thinking, great, it worked! It worked before...but that's when she couldn't escape! So within about 5 minutes we hear her sniveling and she's getting closer to our room so of course, the loving, compassionate, caring parents we are...we just lay there and pretend we are asleep to see what she does. We hear her later, as she's standing on Danny's side of the bed, "upey daddy" a couple of times. Again...we ignore her hoping she will go away :) So I guess I finally fell back to sleep and I asked Danny this morning where he found her and she was sleeping on the floor next to our bed! I start laughing and said, "well whatever, as long as she's not on our bed and wakes us up she can go wherever she wants." Oh happy day!! :)

A woman's week at the gym

K, got this from a friend and it's hilarious!! I swear you will laugh out loud. I have been going to the gym 5 days a week for 2 1/2 months now (after taking a break) and I'm loving it!! No pain no gain right? :)
"This is dedicated to everyone who ever attempted to get into a regular workout routine".
Dear Diary, for my birthday this year, my daughter (the dear) purchased a week of personal training at the local health club for me.Although I am still in great shape since being a high schoolcheerleader 43 years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and give it a try. I called the club and made my reservations with a personal trainernamed Brad, who identified himself as a 26-year-old aerobics instructor and model for athletic clothing and swim wear. My daughter seemed pleased with my enthusiasm to get started! The club encouraged me to keep a diary to chart my progress.
MONDAY:Started my day at 6:00 a.m. Tough to get out of bed, but found it waswell worth it when I arrived at the health club to find Brad waiting forme. He is something of a Greek god - with blond hair, dancing eyes and a dazzling white smile. Woo Hoo!! Brad gave me a tour and showed me the machines. I enjoyed watching the skillful way in which he conducted his aerobics class after my workout today. Very inspiring! Brad was encouraging as I did my sit-ups, although my gut was already aching from holding it in the whole time he was around. This is going tobe a FANTASTIC week-!!
TUESDAY:I drank a whole pot of coffee, but I finally made it out the door. Brad made me lie on my back and push a heavy iron bar into the air then he put weights on it! My legs were a little wobbly on the treadmill,but I made the full mile. Brad's rewarding smile made it all worthwhile.I feel GREAT-!! It's a whole new life for me.
WEDNESDAY:The only way I can brush my teeth is by laying the toothbrush on the counter and moving my mouth back and forth over it. I believe I have a hernia in both pectorals. Driving was OK as long as I didn't try to steer or stop. I parked on top of a GEO in the club parking lot. Brad was impatient with me, insisting that my screams bothered other club members. His voice is a little too perky for early in the morning and when he scolds, he gets this nasally whine that is VERY annoying. My chest hurt when I got on the treadmill, so Brad put me on the stairmonster. Why the heck would anyone invent a machine to simulate an activity rendered obsolete by elevators? Brad told me it would help me get in shape and enjoy life. He said some other crap too.
THURSDAY:Brad was waiting for me with his vampire-like teeth exposed as his thin, cruel lips were pulled back in a full snarl. I couldn't help being a half an hour late, it took me that long to tie my shoes. Brad took me to work out with dumbbells. When he was not looking, I ran and hid in the restroom. He sent some skinny idiot to find me. Then, as punishment, he put me on the rowing machine - which I sank.
FRIDAY:I hate that Brad more than any human being has ever hated any other human being in the history of the world. Stupid, little punk. If there was a part of my body I could move without unbearable pain, I would beat him with it. Brad wanted me to work on my triceps. I don't have any triceps! And if you don't want dents in the floor, don't hand me the darn barbells or anything that weighs more than a sandwich. The treadmill flung me off and I landed on a health and nutrition teacher. Why couldn't it have been someone softer, like the drama coach or the choir director?
SATURDAY:Brad left a message on my answering machine in his grating, shrilly voice wondering why I did not show up today. Just hearing him made me want to smash the machine with my planner. However, I lacked the strength to even use the TV remote and ended up catching eleven straight hours of the Weather Channel.
SUNDAY:I'm having the Church van pick me up for services today so I can go and thank GOD that this week is over. I will also pray that next year my daughter (the little twit) will choose a gift for me that is fun -- like a root canal or a hysterectomy. I still say if God had wanted me to bend over, he would have sprinkled the floor with diamonds.

I'm done with American Idol

I am officially not watching American Idol anymore. I am so disappointed that Jason Castro is still on this show! It was bad enough that Kristi Lee Cook kept coming back and now Brooke left and not Jason??? Whatever...I'm done. Why would you vote for someone who makes funny faces when he sings the high notes cuz he can't reach them? Ya I know I'm picking on him now but come on America he's not good enough to keep coming back! What I do have to say is that I hope David Cook wins cuz to me he's a true artist. He has that edgy, raw, cool voice and can mix up a song like nobody's business, I love him and he probably won't win! Phantom of the Opera is one of my most favorite musicals (is that what you would call it) to go see and he did such a good job with this song so if you haven't seen it, here you go :)
