i love American Idol. and last night (Idol Gives Back) was the best one EVER!!! i woke up this morning with my eye's swollen from crying so much. But what a great show it was. and it really makes me think how blessed I am. when i worry about not being able to pay my bills on time or if my kids have the "right" toys or clothes, i need to remember those poor children in Africa who are raising themselves. They have a room the size of my laundry room to live in. and they have no parents. makes me so thankful for all i have. j

so next week joh bon jovi is going to be the mentor. it should be great!! he is awesome in so many ways!! :) and btw i hope melinda doolittle is going to win. she is in a class all by herself on that show. i would pay money to go see her today. Good Luck Melinda!! I will keep voting for you!!

funny stuff here

check this out

Anniversary weekend

well i did it. i stayed married to my husband for 16 years. holy cow. i can't believe i have been with him for that long and have not killed him. after 16 years he still has the ability to make me freakin' nuts!! no, really i love him. he is so good to me. he treats me like a queen and i let him. so it works well for both of us.

we actually got to go out on a date for our anniversary. just the two of us. we had a GC to o'charlies and went to the cheap $2.50 movie. and my mom paid for the sitter. (instead of actually doing it herself.) (that's a whole nother post) so dinner was good. and it was nice to sit together and talk. and not have to be interrupted by someone needing something. like a drink called milk. (that's monkey speak) then we went to the movie. and let me tell you i'm glad i'm so anal sometimes. i figured that it would be crowded on a friday night so i stopped and got the tickets after i picked big c up from school on friday. when we got to the theater the line was sooooo long. and smart lady that i am, we just waltzed right on in and got a seat. it was packed too. we went to see Music and Lyrics with Drew and Hugh Grant. it was GREAT!! highly recommend for dvd viewing. we laughed and it was sweet and there was no killing or bombs. DH enjoyed it too. then we got some beer and cookies and came home and watched Drive that we had taped from monday night. all in all very good evening. 4 stars

DH had to work on saturday so i mowed the yard. i love to do that. especially since it's not july and not scorching hot outside yet. then the boys and i went to see my mom. then to see our new kitties!! jennifer's cat had her kittens friday night about 12:30. (thanks for not calling jen!)
and we plan on taking 2 of them. we have been cat-less too long in this house. so we saw the kitties and boy are they cute! can't wait till they are old enough to come home! :)

went to church sunday am. love Next Level. then to the Home Depot. we got some plants, and DH needed some stuff for work. i wanted to get some more chain to hang my plants with and while we were in the chain isle, DH got this idea to get some big honkin' chain to pull out the durn crepe myrtles that have been bugging us since we moved into this house. that was soooo cool!! he hooked them around the plants then attached it to the back of his truck and pulled. they jumped out of the ground and we all screamed. it was awesome. now my yard looks so much nicer. and we planted our plants. i love it when we have freshly cut grass and new flowers!

planet earth was on last night. DH is obsessed with it. but the one with caves was on so i enjoyed it too.

hope you are happy now sis. stop bothering me about posting. i do have a life you know. well maybe not much of one if you have read what i just wrote!!

every week in my house i have to decide what to make for dinner. (because i'm the only one with decision making abilities.) this week i said NO MORE. i was not going to decide for someone else what to have for dinner. so i asked the boys what they would like if they could have anything they wanted. they all said meatloaf. now if you know me at all, you will know that i DETEST meatloaf. the sight, the smell and ugg, the taste! and of course since i have never made it, i have no recipe for it. i asked them who's meatloaf they liked best. and the answer was tim's. so i call tim and cathy said he was not going to give me his recipe because it was a secret recipe. right. secret off the box of onion soup mix!

fyi - you don't have to like something to make it taste good. i rock!! my kids LOVED it!!! but don't tell them i added some pureed pumpkin so they would get a veggie with it...........

have you seen this? it's a new search engine that combines google, yahoo, msn and together.

i'm just gonna use it because of the name!

who came up with that? an 11 year old boy?

4 year old boys

if you don't have one, i recommend that you run right out and get one for yourself. they are good for hours of laughs. and if you can get them to learn to wipe their own butts, they are pretty self-sufficient.

monkey decided we were going to play a game. he picked Chutes and Ladders. a game he has never played before. so not only do i get the pleasure of playing a game with a 4 year old, but i have to teach it to him too. the premise of the game is you climb the ladders to get to the top and the chutes push you back down to the bottom. and you want to be at the top. it goes well and i let him win so the game goes faster. i said "You won Monkey!" he got all excited then looked at me and said so where's the shooting? took me a minute to figure out that he thought the game was "Shoots and Ladders" and that there was going to be guns involved and that's really why he wanted to play it. ahhh the joys of childhood............

kay's simple life

this is it. my simple life. boring as it is i feel compelled to jot it all down.
