Dryer Duct cleaning

Had the dryer duct cleaned on Friday. An old birds nest and lots of lint came out. I do not like my dryer being vented up a wall, under my second floor subfloor, across a room and out the second story. Whoever designed this is a complete idiot!

Joey has informed he has two girlfriends. One is Paige from All-Stars (his preschool from MI and those from AllStars will understand) and the other is Elizabeth in his class :) He told me he ♥s her. LOL. Justin, wanting to be just like his brother, said he has a girlfriend too. I ask him what her name was and he told me he doesn't know. :)

American Idol tonight and then starting season 3 of Weeds! :)

We forgot to start the roast for dinner so we have to make other plans but we got the banana bread and apple sauce made! Yum!

Joey wrote his first (thank you) letter to Grandma Char - he wrote the letter, addressed the envelope, helped put a stamp and return label on it and put it in the mail box. My boy is growing up!! :)

I ♥ thunderstorms!! :)

Now it's hailing - pee size. MY gosh is it coming down out there. Thunderstorms, hailing - whew!!

I love lazy Sunday afternoons :) Well kinda lazy - the kids did get haircuts and we did get fish for our new fish tank, but it has been rather calm. Birthday party this later afternoon for Joey's friend :)

Joey knows yesterday was pay day for his allowance and is not happy he did not get paid. He's already waking up Joe to get paid. Hahaha :)

Had a very nice park play date with very mild weather (low 60s) with Brandy Craghead Dowdy. Now the boys are relaxing after a nice dinner Joe made. :)

Valentine's Date

♥ Our late Valentine's day dinner is tonight at Rick's Chophouse downtown. We had to cancel last week because our daycare cancelled because of snow. I can't wait to go out!!

Tuesday, February 16, 2010


Filling out tons of paperwork for daycare centers is my LEAST favorite thing to do!!! Medical histories, emergency contact info, our info, child questionnaires, what do we want from the daycare, blah blah blah. I feel like I'm repeating over and over and over!

Did y'all see the news trucks in front of Bennett elementary today? They had a sewage spill at Bennett Elementary. They had it on the news tonight. Parents are angry because the students stayed in the area for over an hour before anyone even started to clean it. Then they are just cleaning the carpet and not replacing? Wow, parents are not happy.

Valentine's Day party

Joey counting how many different color candies he has.

Mrs. Davis.


Joe watching Justin.


Justin came along!

Joey making an art project.

I love you valentine!

Mrs. Davis and her class!


Busy day today! Joe and I have the day off. Justin doesn't start his new school until tomorrow but we went to say goodbye to his old teachers today since Friday was a snow day. Had the dryer looked at (duct work needs to be sucked out) and lunch with Joey at school. Valentines day parties this afternoon. WHEW!

More photos

Joey and Justin watching the photos on the digital picture frame. They miss the family!

Joey likes to mop. It's his new chore!


Justin being cute!

Hockey in the house...

Some think we are crazy. I guess we are just laid back. We have hockey sticks, a ball and an actual goal that we keep in the house and play in our hallway. The kids love it and so does dad!

Shooting past Joe.



I love freecycle!!!! Not only do I get cool stuff (Justin got some really cool Cars Movie sheets this weekend), but I can get rid of stuff I don't need AND I've found some really cool friends through Freecycle coincidentally. ♥♥♥

We are finally starting to thaw out. Snow is still on the ground. Errands today!!

To celebrate Valentine's Day , change your profile pic to one of you and your sweetie and be sure to put how long you've been together. copy and paste. ~ 13 years- married 7!

Joe is convincing me that I must watch the series Weeds with I am.

Snow - loads of snow

4 inches in one day in Dallas. Unbelievable.


FB: Wow. We have about an inch of snow in Dallas with potential for up to four. It is still falling!

At lunch we had 4 inches of snow. It's been snowing non-stop since. I bet we have about 6 inches. Schools are already cancelled tomorrow. The kids are so happy to play in snow! Good thing we still have our snow boots and snow pants! ♥

Taken at 8am

FB: Had so much fun going to Vicki's house tonight. The boys had a blast playing together and I had fun catching up. Love ya Vicki! :) ♥

I go into the kid's bedroom (they sleep in Joey's room in bunk beds) and it's 10:38 and Justin has the lights on and is playing with books and toys in his bed. Seriously - 10:30? He was sent to sleep in his own room until he stops screwing around at bedtime. I wonder if he is outgrowing his nap. All I know is he's keeping Joey up too late at night. FRUSTRATING!!!!

Ethan's Birthday Party

Justin, ready to eat.

Joey hanging out.

Ethan's birthday party continued

Vicki's son Ethan

He doesn't like cake so he got a cookie cake. It was so good.

Birthday boy

Finishing up work... and candy store

Finishing up my migration for work this morning. SO far so good so keeping my fingers crossed! The boys have a birthday party this morning to attend. They can not wait to go bowling. Hoping for a nice relaxing day. It's nice to have Joe Fisher home again :)

Mom and Pop Popcorn Shop in downtown McKinney is one of our favorite places to go. They sell all the old candy you liked as a kid. Here are some photos from inside the store:

Justin by the barrels of candy.

Joe by all the bulk candies.
