Twenty Eight Lines To Make You Smile

I  am a big ole loser and am not feeling very creative this week with my posts, I need some inspiration, but I got nothing. Well I take that back, I got this e-mail that thought I would share. 

1.. My husband and I divorced over religious differences. He thought he was God and I didn't.
.. I don't suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it.
Some people are alive only because it's illegal to kill them.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.
5. Don't take life too seriously; No one gets out alive.
6.. You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me
7.. Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder.
Earth is the insane asylum for the universe.
I'm not a complete idiot -- Some parts are just missing.
10... Out of my mind. Back in five minutes.
NyQuil, the stuffy, sneezy, why-the-heck-is-the-room-spinning medicine.
12.. God must love stupid people; He made so many.
The gene pool could use a little chlorine.
Consciousness: That annoying time between naps.
15.. Ever stop to think, and forget to start again?
Being 'over the hill' is much better than being under it!
Wrinkled Was Not One of the Things I Wanted to Be When I Grew up.
. Procrastinate Now!
19.. I Have a Degree in Liberal Arts; Do You Want Fries With That?
A hangover is the wrath of grapes.
21.. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a cash advance.
22.. Stupidity is not a handicap. Park elsewhere!
They call it PMS because Mad Cow Disease was already taken.
24.. He who dies with the most toys is nonetheless DEAD.
A picture is worth a thousand words, but it uses up three thousand times the memory.
.. Ham and eggs...A day's work for a chicken, a lifetime commitment for a pig.
The trouble with life is there's no background music.
The original point and click interface was a Smith & Wesson.
Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends!
Life is too short and friends are too few!

Dr. Seuss quote, “Be who you are and say what you mean because those who matter don’t mind and those who mind don’t matter.”

Super Sunday

Linda and Mocha With Linda reminded me of this song yesterday and I wanted to share it for Super Sunday.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (New Living Translation)

3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.

If you would like to link up head over toPeggy's for Super Sunday, Have a blessed day:)

MJ - Early Saturday

I know a lot of people did not care for Michael Jackson in the past couple years, but aside from his personal struggles I think he was very talented individual. He did sing a lot of uplifting songs. May he rest in peace. 

Bits and Pieces

You would think with all the Muffin Goodness I made this week that I would be cramming my face with them every chance I get, but I have been saving my muffins for breakfast only.
By the way I made some more muffins, because ya know you can never have enough. They are Lemon Blueberry Muffins and you can find the recipe here.

P1040769 P1040770
I have a new yummy dessert and it is pretty good for you.
Take Yoplait Light Boston Cream Pie
or Yoplait Banana Cream Pie and
mix in some Sweet and Crunchy peanuts
Let me tell you it is soooo good.

Now on to my Fave pic of the week.

This is the Basil my husband it growing.  I can’t believe it survived let alone how vibrant it is.

Puppy News :
Ginger has not been feeling well this week. She is having trouble jumping up on to things and we are not sure why. It started Wednesday Night. So now she just puts her two front feet up on the couch and then sits their grunting and pouting until someone picks her up. We think she might have pulled a muscle. She went to Gram and Paps with Bub on Monday to go swimming and to play with their dogs which she is not used to since she is an only puppy so she may have just over exerted herself or she could have done it here jumping off the couch or running in the backyard. We have a Border Collie that lives next door and she is obsessed with Ginger so she sits next to the fence all day waiting for Ginger to come out so they can run up and down the fence line together. Anyway, Ginger is milking this because she is constantly standing here.
P1040775 What might you ask is so pertinent about this cabinet. Well her treats are behind door number one and she knows it, so she just sits and waits and stares at you with her sad one eye until you cave and give her one.

P1040773Who could deny this face. I know I can’t.
If she is still not able to jump by next week we will be going to the vet.
And just for fun.

Bub’s teacher gave me this Bamboo plant at the end of the year and it is almost July and it is still alive. It is a cause for celebration and the fact that it is Friday.

The Tweet Life

I started tweeting a couple months ago and I am really not that great at it.  Since I got nothing today I thought I would share some of my tweets.

*Off to the dentist to get my Crown fixed for the umpteenth time…Later that day….Crown did not fit, so they put the temp/perm crown back on and sent me on my way. Officially deemed the tooth from He** by the dental tech. Seriously this is like the 4th or 5th temp or perm crown for this one tooth, get to go back in 2 weeks..woohoo..

*Hopefully no rain today and we can go swimming.

*Listening to my son complain cause he can't find something, then he comes to me and says "well I did not touch it so you must have put it somewhere", yep I love to go in my child's room and hide things from him...it's what I do in my spare time....ughhh...here's a notion maybe in one of your let me clean my room real quick escapades, you probably thru it in your closet never to be found again..why do we always get blamed for loosing their toys??

*The maid is coming today.....oh wait that would be me :( … Unloading the dishwasher, vacuuming, mopping, laundry, cleaning all the bathrooms....oh yea today is going to be awesome....

*Trying to get my non cooperating child to go to the store with me. I even bribed him with chick-fil-a and still he refuses...ughhhh …later that day…Finally got mrmr to go to the store but we had to go to chick-fil-a first of course, he was even cooperative about going to Tarjay :)Seriously why is it such a chore to get him to leave the house...why is this?

*Off to get in the pool, donning another bathing suit to scare the neighbors....ahahahahaha

*Did not realize the super tiny pic in my post could be clicked on and everyone could see me in a bikini at the beach...how embarrassing. I am such a moron....

*Just got back from the money stealer... I detest the Grocery Store.

*Just when I go outside to clean the pool so I can lounge a stinking big black cloud starts rolling in. Guess I'll have to take a nap..mannnn

See my dilemma with tweeting, My life is just not that interesting…Do you tweet?

Yummo, Father’s Day & Tid Bits Of Info

Me and Hubby made home made muffins for Family Life Group Saturday Night and boy did they look yummo and were they delicious. My whole house smelled like heaven.

Homemade Blueberry and Pumpkin muffins
P1040762 and the recipe for these is below

Pumpkin Muffins
(I got this recipe from Patrice, but I am not sure where it originated)
2 cups Sugar
2 cups SR Flour
2 tsp Cinnamon
1/8 tsp Ground Cloves
1/8 tsp Nutmeg
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
4 eggs
1 15 oz can packed pumpkin (not the pie filling)
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all dry ingredients first, then add oil, eggs, vanilla and pumpkin.  Mix until blended (it is a very soupy type consistency).  Pour into muffin pan and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

Father’s Day morning I awoke to find a lilly had bloomed.
Isn’t it pretty
and another one is well on its way.
We went to my parents for most of Father’s Day and ate at my Dad’s favorite Mexican restaurant.  I know where are the pics, well someone forgot her camera :(  We did a little swimming and then headed home to swim some more and have a fish fry.
P1040767 P1040768
All in all it was a wonderful Father’s Day filled with Yummo Food.
On a side note, I did not blog or tweet yesterday… I think I deserve a round of applause. 👏
I did facebook, but I am making progress on not being on my computer every waking hour. 
And just because every post deserves a Ginger picture. 
My son was building a fort and Ginger decided to partake since he was using one of her favorite comforters.
This one she looks evil, as if to say “one more picture Lady and we are going to have a problem…Can’t a dog sleep without a flash going off in their face.”
This is my son’s favorite thing lately, the sleeping bag and his DS
P1040707 P1040706
What is up with everyone not wanting their picture taken, it is not like I stalk them with a camera all day.

Beaches away

This was actually from last weeks beach birthday excursion.

A little advice

I chose number 3 today although it is more of a warning than advice.

If you go into a store like lets say Wally World or Tarjay and your child begs you for a game that we will call Chipmunk Zoo, (not really the name, but I don’t want to be sued by said game maker), anywho do not even consider it..walk away.  This game all be it fun and gives you peace and quiet for hours because they are hard at work building their chipmunk zoo, but when they have saved umpteen zoo’s on your hard drive and you go in and delete quite a few because you computer is running like the slowest turtle that ever lived you will be greeted with crying and how you deleted the best chipmunk zoo they ever made for the same amount of hours that you enjoyed that peace and quiet while they were building the zoo.  So again run don’t walk to the nearest exit of the store and don’t look back…the hours of peace and quiet are not worth the hours of tears and looks of shear disappointment that you will be given.

The Prompts:
1.) Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page and share two “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
2.) What do you aspire to be?
3.)Share a piece of unsolicited parenting advice...only I'm soliciting it.
4.)Tell us about your blogline...how long have you been blogging, when did you start, what were/are your goals for your blog, etc.
5.)If you had 5000 dollars to give away or donate to a charity...explain what you would do with it and why.

Which one will YOU choose??

Oh Happy Day

Well yesterday was hubby’s b-day and we had a full day of fun.  1st he opened his gifts. P1040716

Then we headed to the beach for the majority of the day and boy was it hooooot.  

Here is Brad and Bub playing in the surf


And then Me and Bub P1040732_thumb[29][1] ,what’s that you can’t see the picture, sorry about that, something must be wrong with the computer.  I thought the bathing suit I put on looked o.k. until I looked at the pictures….Reminder to self never wear that bathing suit to the beach ever again…

Well here is one where you can’t see my bathing suit and proof I was there….P1040730and a pic just becauseP1040736

we had some little crab friends near our beach set up running up and down the beach, Bub was trying to get one to come out of his hiding spot but he was all “not on your life little kid” …how rude.

P1040722 P1040723    

And we saw a sail boat which was pretty close to shore so that was cool and there were Manta Ray’s swimming in the water and they were so neat, but my camera is not water proof so no pics of them :(


When we got home I whipped up a batch of cupcakes because I am Susie Homemaker and all…  While they were cooling I went to get cleaned up from the buckets of sand that accompanied me home and then frosted and decorated them, well sorta I had the wrong icing tip and although I could have remedied that issue, I did not feel like dirtying more dishes. They were supposed to be G’s for Georgia Bulldog’s, but ended up looking like swirls or 6’s… Oh well “You get what you get and you don’t pitch a fit” as my sons 1st grade teacher used to say.


One turned out o.k. though  P1040738

My parents came over and we ate pizza and they gave him the gifts they had brought and then we sang happy birthday…still working on Ginger singing, but she won’t cooperate..then we ate cupcakes and called it a day.

P1040744 What a fun Happy Birthday for Hubby :)


**Public Service Announcement***

0610091224-01To anyone from up north or from anywhere for that matter that wants to partake in the beach…please bring or rent a shade umbrella…I saw so many children and adults burnt to a crisp because they had no shade to escape from the suns rays.
