So, i took last week off from blogging, my intention was to get more cleaning done. I did tackle the kitchen drawers and cabinets. And i filled 2 garbage bags! geez! I guess that is what happens when you take a year off. Last year i skipped the big clean. Yesterday we did a really good clutter clean since book club was hosted at my house. So today...i could either tackle my room (Its a danger zone in there) or relax. Not sure yet...i am a little pooped from yesterday. 6 women and 10 kids! It was a blast though.
So, what have we been up to? Probably the same ol as always. E-man only had one game last week and he hit great again. He likes to switch the side he hits on each inning. So far he can hit right or left handed. So, that's good. I am going to look into tennis for him this summer. He is really intrested. Hopefully the county will offer a camp or the lessons won't be too expensive. I am thinking of putting Dumpling in something this summer. I know she feels left out. When she is 4 she will start dance. Its a Reeve girl tradition (and she is half Reeve). We start it and see how we like it. I did it until high school. I am thinking maybe this summer i might put her in gymnastics for a month to get her active in something. It might help her not be so clumsy.
Saturday was our kitty Valerie's one year birthday! We were crazy people and decided to have a small party. I will try to post some pics soon. We had cheesecake and the kitty loved it. The kids were so excited to celebrate. Now, many people will think we are nuts...but we never claimed to be normal.

I have been using google reader now to read my blogs. Pretty much b/c it can link up to my phone and i can still read blogs away from home.
Anyway, my question is, do i have to go to the persons page to leave a blog comment or is there a way to do it from google reader?
Thanks for any help!

We are doing sleepovers this weekend. Kind of exciting! E-Man is going to his friends house to sleep and Dumpling is having the little sister who is her age come here. This is not E-Man’s first sleep over at a friends. He has had one or two others i think. This will be Dumpling’s first time having a friend spend the night.
So saturday night, the Hubs and I will have not one 3 year old girl but two! This should be quite the adventure.
So now i wonder, what will these girls do? Play dress up, play kitchen, talk laugh and giggle their hearts out. I think its gonna be fun, but i guess i will let ya know that on Sunday!
(incase your wondering why the name change in the kids, read a couple entries down)

Last night was E-Man's second baseball game! He did great last night. At his age, they play 3 innings. It went from 7-8:30! We were wipped out when getting home. E-man is lucky that he is a left and right handed batter. He bats much better left handed. He usually hits the second throw to him. This video is hitting right handed and he still did it! He was so proud of himself last night. I could tell he was proud of all the work he has been doing at home. Last year he really didn't enjoy t-ball too much. But this year he is having a blast!

These two great bloggers i read started a really cool thing called Read It Forward.
To sum it up, basically its like a giveaway. I am going to put a book on here and link up with their Read it Forward pages. Then you get to leave me comments and then Friday i am going to use random.org to pick the lucky winner of this book. You would then read the book, review the book and on the inside cover write your name and blog. You would then when you have finished the book, list it on your blog to pass it on. If your lucky, not only will you pass a good read on, you will also get a book. So, Please click on the link about (Read It Forward) for all the details.
So, now finally, the book i have decided to part with that has been sitting on my book shelf. Its called The Secret Lives of The Fortunate HouseWives by Sarah Strohmeyer.
(text taken from Amazon.com)
Perfectly timed to ride the wave of Desperate Housewives-mania comes a sharply sardonic tale of suburban sex-capades, social snobbery, and stock swindles from the author of the effervescent Bubbles mystery series. In the tony Cleveland suburb of Hunting Hills, where absurdly wealthy executives ensconce their couturier-clad wives in opulent McMansions and supply them with platinum AmEx cards, there are rules for wifely behavior that have nothing on the Ten Commandments. Trophy wives happily commit adultery and covet their neighbors with style and aplomb. As queen of this realm of riches, Marti Denton reigns supreme. Only one thing eludes her--the oh-so-sexy John Harding--and Marti isn't about to let a little thing like John's recent marriage to the mousy Claire or her own rocky marital state stand in the way. The mordantly observant Strohmeyer skewers the lifestyles of the rich and fatuous with spot-on irony, painting her pretentious socialites with broad, sarcastic strokes in an uproarious, upscale, tongue-in-cheek tour de force.

Its Monday again! That is defiently an Oh my moment! I didn't want to get out of bed!
So....the Oh My moments this weekend were......
Posted by Wolfe at 8:12 AM
Today was a day to remind myself to breath in and out slowly. It was one of those days where to kids are going to push every button they can. Whew! And they were in bed at 6:45 tonight too! This Mama had had enough!
Tomorrow they are on restrictions. I think it will do them good. in the long run, they are upset that there will be no TV or video games tomorrow or until they prove they can function in society better. Heck...what am i getting myself into. The TV is the best babysitter, does this mean i have to entertain them? Darn! Then again, Ethan may have looked at me like he cared less since he goes to school. Its Brooke who is really in for it. Or maybe its me, b/c she is the whiner. Oh well, that's what those two bottles of wine are for, right? To help mommy take the edge off in the evenings.
Other then today, the weekend was well. The kids stayed with my parents friday night. So the hibs and I got some alone time. Much much needed time. We had a great saturday. We vegged around in the morning and then had a nice lunch together at sonic before getting the kids. After that, we went into a town near us, ate again, lol. I got my phones software updated and it works much better now.
Today was beautiful weather and would have been a great day to just play with the kids. Yet, they fought with each other and me all day. Probably coming off grandparent withdraws. Oh well!
Hope everyone else had a great weekend!!!!

Wow....have you seen this yet? I have been hearing about it all day. I kept thinking, how bad could the commerical be. What are these people talking about. I see now. Nike...this ad was horrible. Sorry, thats my opinon. That fact that Tiger even did this video makes me lose more respect for him then what he did to his wife. I actually had hopes for his marriage before this. I in no way agreed with what he did, but he seemed to come across as sincerly sorry for his actions. This commercial looks like he is using his misery and what he did to get ratings. Sorry...Nike and Tiger....your lame!

today i am linking up with Thursdays Thank you very much sponsered by The Daily Dribbles
Thank you very much is pretty much a free therapy session :o)
--To the parents out there who seems to get it right with your kids...quit judging me. Yeah, that's right, i am not a perfect parent. I have two kids with mouths and yes they sure do enjoy talking back. No, i didn't get those kids who i can tell to go to time out and they just go! I get smack back. I get talked back too. Sure, its probably something i did wrong in my parenting, but in the long run as my little guy is yelling and screaming and justifing his actions as i argue back to just get into time out...he is only using his right to free speech. Watch our whoever decides to piss him off!
--To Brooke...use your words. I am tired of crying.
--To this pollen. I know soon your going to have me sick. I am allerigic to you and i know soon i will feel so weak and miserable i won't want out of bed.
--To my allergy medicine...WHERE THE HECK DID YOU GO?! It just disappered. Like it is working with the pollen to make me miserable.
--Also...why does everyone assume because i read twilight that i only read vampire stuff?! Geez...a good vamp novel is good every now and then. But i mostly read chick lit. Stuff about boring housewifes and the fantasy world we all wish we could live in :o)
Yeah so, its been a good week. Not a whole lot making me mad right now. Anyway, click the photo above and link with and so your own Thank You Very Much. Its fun and hey it helps get more followers :o)
