Have Fun!!

Crazy mutt!

I was trying to get Chandler into his crate so I could take a shower without wondering which toys of Kassidy's he's going to ruin and of course he doesn't listen to me and runs so I can't catch him so I got frustrated and put him out in the backyard. Not even 5 minutes later I go to check on him before I proceed with my shower taking and this is what I find, a dog covered in mud and a tree that he's trying to dig ! Now picture this, at the same time, I'm on the phone with my cousins wife and she is cracking up because I am yelling at the dog asking him why he's covered in mud and also yelling at him cuz he's now got mud all over my glass doors, the flagstone steps, the patio and my rug!! In the midst of all this I have to run and take pictures so I can email them to her so she can see what just happened. And he just thinks this is fun!! These pics don't do justice.


Our Target trip

Kassidy and I made a trip to Target and we were standing at the deli isle waiting for our food so Kassidy comes over to me, stands behind me and starts slapping my legs with both hands and then starts slapping my bum and says "shake your bum bum mommy". Ya, like I'm gonna get my grove on in the middle of the store!

Rules for the road

My personal favs are #7, 8 &12.
I think we will forever live in a construction zone!

1. You must first learn to pronounce the city name.
It is 'FEE-NICKS'.
2. The morning rush hour is from 5:00am to noon. The evening rush hour
is from noon to 7:00pm . Friday's rush hour starts on Thursday morning.
3. The minimum acceptable speed on most freeways is 85 mph. On Loop 101, your speed is expected to match the highway number. Anything less is considered 'wussy'.
4. Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. Phoenix has its own version of traffic rules. For example, cars/trucks with the loudest muffler go first at a four-way stop; the trucks with the biggest tires go second. However, East Valley , SUV-driving, cell phone-talking moms ALWAYS have the right of way.
5. If you actually stop at a yellow light, you will be rear ended, cussed out, and possibly shot.
6. Never honk at anyone...ever! Seriously! It's another offense that can get you shot.
7. Road construction is permanent and continuous in Phoenix . Detour barrels are moved around for your entertainment pleasure during the middle of the night to make the next day's driving a bit more exciting.
8. Watch carefully for road hazards such as drunks, skunks, dogs, barrels, cones, cows, horses, cats, mattresses, shredded tires, squirrels, rabbits, crows, vultures, javelinas, roadrunners, and the coyotes feeding on any of these items.
9. Maricopa Freeway, Papago Freeway and the 'I-10' are the same road. SR-202 is the same road as The Red Mountain FWY. Dunlap and Olive are the same street, too. Jefferson becomes Washington , but they are not the same street. I-17 is also called The Black Canyon Freeway, as well as, The Veterans Memorial Highway, and if all that isn't enough to remember, SR-51 has recently been renamed Piestewa Freeway because Squaw Peak Parkway was too easy pronounce. SR-101 is also the Pima FWY, except west of I-17, which is also The Black Canyon FWY, and The Veterans Memorial HWY, west of I-17, it is known as the Agua Fria FWY. Lastly, Thunderbird Rd. becomes Cactus Rd. , but Cactus Rd. does not become Thunderbird Rd. because it dead-ends at a mountain.
10. If someone actually has their turn signal on, wave them to the shoulder immediately to let them know it has been 'accidentally activated.'
11. If you are in the left lane and only driving 70 in a 55-65 mph zone, you are considered a road hazard and will be 'flipped off' accordingly. If you return the flip, you'll be shot..
12. For summer driving, it is advisable to wear potholders on your hands.


I am having one of those nights where you can't sleep so you just do random stuff and look at what I found! I think I would like to work at the FDA place so I can monitor what really goes into our food...so the next time you eat that yummy yogurt you might be eating a spider??? YIKES. And what about hot dogs? They already put the "excess" parts of animals in there, did they really have to add spiders to the mix? Or how about this...baby food fruits and veggies.
Anyways, just read below!

You eat eight spiders every year in your sleep. True?

Nope, says MythBusters. There's no evidence that spiders secretly crawl into our mouths while we're sleeping. Even if you were lying perfectly still, your breathing would scare a spider off, so it's unlikely to hang out around your mouth. Alas, the bad news: You probably consume more spiders when you are awake -- in your food. Here's why: The Food and Drug Administration guidelines allow a certain level of whole insects or parts in some food products, such as those containing fruits or vegetables. Yum.
