Jess, that soup sounds awesome!

I'm sorry about the mood, Suz! Hopefully some {{{{HUGS}}}} will help!

Colleen, good luck with your training! I'm so impressed with all of you exercising. I can hardly think about exercising lately because I'm so t**** (not mentioning that word today) at night.
LOL!! Before I read the (not mentioning that word today) part I was like "Polly!! What did you say that got bleeped out?!"

LOL! It's not a bad word, but I'm still being "positive". Does it count if I bleep it out?

I'm afraid that I used up my bad word quota at Porcha!

Uh oh! We must have made you crazy at Porcha!

Unfortunately, it is a part of my daily vocabulary and I don't see it going away. I know when not to use it, but sometimes there is no better word to express some severe dissatisfaction!

I rarely cuss, but once it starts -- watch out!

My mom never cusses. She doesn't even know where the words go. My sister said that her room was really messy when she was younger, and my mom said, "Clean your room damn".

Hola from su casa.

It's really too bad that i don't know how to say "from" in Spanish or it would have been perfect.
Oh well!

From = de

Actually, in that use, desde might be a better work than de. I can't remember.

I need to make the GIANT grocery shopping list.
I'm avoiding it...yuck!


oh around 2:30 my phone rang in the store. I was talking to a customer...so I never got it.
5 minutes later it rang again.
Turns out it was my neighbor.
She never left a message....not sure what she wanted.
I got to the bus stop and she was there. She had some errand to run after and I'm guessing she wanted me to take the kids.
She never mentioned the calls when I saw her.

Weird.

So, what's everyone up to this weekend?

We have no solid plans as of yet. Kate needs some clothes so we may have to hit a few stores.

Well I made a card but I can't take a picture of it. Our antique camera's batteries are dead again. Just put them in the charger. *#&@*(#(#@~! We must buy a new camera!

I'm not sure I like the card. It's okay overall, I just don't like the layout and hate the flowers I used. I used my copics and like the way that turned out.

I need some iTunes help. Lately whenever I try to go to the iTunes store all I get is a black screen. I can see my account and my wishlist, but the store itself is black. Anyone have any ideas? I searched help and support last night and got nowhere. No big surprise there.

I had "smile" at your language comments. I used to be a pretty decent "bomber" but have been a lot better at curbing my tongue. Using "freakin" or "frinkin" or the like isn't really a whole lot different but I do that a lot.

I saw a quote today that really made me think, not just about language, but also attitude and actions as well:

"Don't allow anything in your life that you don't want reproduced in your children's lives"

My son is a good kid and is very like-able by kids and adults. He is helpful and pretty respectful BUT he is not an angel by any means. It's been about 3 or 4 years ago I read something that he had typed to a friend. He had left his My Space up and I read a few things. I know you are thinking that I should not have done that and maybe you are right but I did it and saw something that made me really sad and also disappointed. He was mad at us because he had to something that he really didn't want to and he told someone of there that "he was so Fing (typed out) mad that they want me to do this isht". Now Mike does not cuss at all and I don't talk like that around the kids, not bombs but I will say a few other things when I'm really mad. He got in trouble and was grounded from his phone and the computer but I told him just how disappointed I was in him. You are looked at as a leader in areas and when you are doing that it looks ok to other kids who are impressionable.

Does this make sense without sounding totally judgemental? I do NOT intend it to but I have to really think about what kind of character values I am showing my kids. Grace and I were in a store the other day and a guy was standing there on his cell phone and talking loudly, cussing like it was nothing. Dude! There were kids walking around where he was and he acted like it was no big deal and he WASN'T some young kid!

Let me tell you, when you hear your kid say the F word or something similar in a casual manner, it can really make you think about what you say.

Sorry for sounding like a preachah girl!! That quote just really struck me hard today.

Aw Suz...I'll come right over to improve your mood and stamp

Yeah, I need a new camera, too. Not sure it's going to happen any time soon.
Once the refi is done we'll make a solid budget and we'll see if it'll take 5 months to save or 50

Jackie I get what you're saying.
Kids learn by example...but you can't always control the examples they have.
You & Mike lead by example but when he leaves the house he has OTHER examples.
It's sad but a normal fact of life that kid like to act bigger than they are when they're w/ their friends.
I don't think his swearing is a reflection of you & Mike but rather the kids he hung out with.


THat whole privacy thing is a FINE line, too.
I hate the idea of it but I also know that the world is not as innocent as when we were 9.
So much technology.
I say you do what you have to do to keep your kids safe.

Aw, thanks, Edie! It'll be fun to stamp with a friend!

We've been saying we need a new camera for two years. Maybe after supper tonight I can get Ed to stop by BestBuy or somewhere and at least look at them. I'm sooooooooooooooooo sick of fighting with ours.

There is a Stampin Up regional thing in Fort Worth today and tomorrow and I am going to the session tomorrow. They are always fun and I see some gals that I haven't seen for a long time. Haven't been to one that is so close so that is nice for me! I'm taking a friend of mine as a guest.

They're not as expensive as they used to be.
Still, I want a good one and I don't have $200-ish to plop down right this minute.

I don't think his swearing is a reflection of you & Mike but rather the kids he hung out with.


THat whole privacy thing is a FINE line, too.
I hate the idea of it but I also know that the world is not as innocent as when we were 9.
So much technology.
I say you do what you have to do to keep your kids safe.
Yeah, it is a fine line and I want to trust him and since he is 400 miles away, I have to trust that he is taking care "of business". He later talked about how other kids really trash talked in the locker rooms and he didn't like it. A few weeks ago he was talking about the Punter at ESU and the guy is just really crude and he doesn't even like to be around him but the kickers have to practice together so he just does what he has to do around that guy and goes onto other stuff.

OK, this may sound mean on my part but anyways--

Zane just switched dorm rooms. He was getting tired of the kid he was rooming with coming in a 2-3 in the morning and making a bunch of noise when Zane has his first class at 8:00 and some other things too. Before he had decided to move, the kid was using Zane's laptop because he didn't have one. Now, I understand that not everyone has one but I told Zane "no" to that because he has no idea what stuff the kid in looking up when Zane isn't there. That may sound bad but I don't want the school cyber police coming after MY kid for someone else's stuff.

Man! I am really sounding like a B!!!

Still, I want a good one and I don't have $200-ish to plop down right this minute.
I would have no idea how to use a good camera!

I want one with a better pixels and zoom but nothing major.

I'm not worthy!!

Not to me!
Kids that come from lots of $ have no concept of 1) their belongings and 2) that other people actually cherish the items they have.

Not everyone can afford to just replace an electronic item if it's broken.

NOt to mention the other stuff....Zane should put a log in password on it.

That's all I want!
I also want software that's easy to use.
The last 2 software packages that came w/ my cameras were awful.
I'm too cheap to get a good one
