She fell in the pond today.

Yep, Ari rolled down the hill and fell in the pond. Luckily she didn't go in head first like I was afraid was going to happen. Just her feet and up to one knee. Scared her (and me) more than anything. She has a little mark on her chin where she hit something. I'm not sure what she hit. Probably a small rock or a stick. After I realized that she was okay I couldn't help but laugh. I'd been trying to tell both kids to be careful or they were going to fall in. Does it make me a bad mommy to laugh at my little girl for falling in a pond? LOL

Maybe now they will listen? Yeah, probably not. They will forget all about it within hours. LOL

Who to pick? Who to pick?

So, what are you doing today? I'm sitting in my comfy recliner watching the 2007 NFL Draft. The biggest surprise of the day apparently is that Brady Quinn from Notre Dame is still undrafted. Right now we are at the 18th pick. Doesn't look good for him in the next few picks either since the upcoming teams are not in need of a QB.

My Titans are up next and I'm torn. Considering that our defense was ranked 32nd last year I think we need to look at improving that with the draft. But, I also feel we are in desperate need of a good WR for Vince to throw to. There are a good number of WRs available this year though so I'm not sure if they will go with one in the 1st round. (We are one the clock now.) Ugh, we also need a RB. I guess we have lots of holes to fill. *sigh*

None of my UGA players have gone as of yet and listening to the buzz it doesn't look like any of them will go in the 1st round and maybe not even the 2nd. Not sure how I feel about that other than that if they left school early for the NFL maybe they should have stayed put for another year. LOL That just goes along with my belief that no one should leave college early. I'm kinda weird that way. LOL

Here is the Draft Tracker if you care to see what is going on.

We chose a safety from Texas, Michael Griffin. So, I guess they thought that defense was the biggest need. I can't disagree with that.

Babies everywhere I turn!!

Talk about giving a girl baby fever! My sister-in-law had a beautiful baby girl last week. A friend of mine from school has a new baby girl as of Monday. There is this really adorable 4 month old boy at the kids' daycare. A 9 week old girl starts tomorrow. There are 2 teachers pregnant at my school right now. One due in July and one in October. This is killing me!!!!!!! I want another baby!! Not right this minute (okay so maybe yeah), but the end of the summer. That way I can be at school the entire (or almost) school year next year. I even have names picked out! How sad is that? *sigh*

I am so tired of people taking our stuff!!!

Dammit!! It has happened again. This time someone apparently thought that we had a lot of money or stuff or something. He/she/it broke into Michael's car this time. They left very disappointed though. There was nothing in there. Not even a stereo. They did, however, pry open the door so that is probably going to have to be fixed. I don't think anything pisses me off more than someone taking something that doesn't belong to them. We work damn hard for the things we have. These asses need to get out and get their own damn jobs!! I so wish I would have seen them doing it so I could call the police. I'd have loved to get them arrested as the realized there was absolutely nothing of value in the car they had chosen. Who would have thought there would be anything of value in an old beat up 1992 Honda Accord Wagon with empty Coke bottles and dirty t-shirts (as Michael tells it) anyway? IDIOTS!!!

I hate people. I think that when I win the lottery (notice I said WHEN and not if?) I am going to buy a deserted island for my family and friends. That way I don't have to deal with people I don't like very much. Anyone want to join us?

Nobody wants fans like this (I hope anyway)

Last night during the Braves/Mets game a Mets fan was shining a high powered light into the eyes of a couple of the Braves players including pitcher Tim Hudson. What the heck?! Did this idiot realize that it was against the law to interfere with a professional game? Did he know that doing something like that could really do damage to a person's eyes? He is an idiot and I hope that he is banned from any other Mets games.

Very sad day

It has happened again. This time on a college campus. I'm sure you have heard by now that there has been a shooting on the campus of VA Tech. There were 32 people killed plus the shooter. Many more wounded. This breaks my heart. Will it ever stop? Will kids ever stop killing other kids? What makes someone so angry that they think they are justified in taking the life of others? Where does the anger come from? Is it a disease? Why does it seem to be happening so much more often than when I was a kid? So many questions and so few answers. *sigh*

My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those lost today and the VA Tech family.

Sweet brother moment!!

So, Ari is asleep and starts crying. I go to comfort her. Joshua comes in and asks what is wrong with her. Ensuing conversation:

J~Momma, what's wrong with Ari?
M~She had a bad dream. Please go back to bed.
J~ I want to give her a hug.
J~ (climbing on the bed and hugging Ari) I just love her. She is my favorite friend.

He even kissed her on the head and told her that everything was okay.

Go ahead, say it! "Awwwww!!" LOL I did!

You know he watches too much Star Wars when.........

The kid watches Star Wars whenever he can. He watches every night during his "quiet time" before bed. He watches in the car. He watches during the day when we are home. Granted, he watches any of the 6 of them, but he is always watching.

Now he goes around humming the Darth Vader theme song! Yep, he watches too much!! LOL

Ari funny

"Ms. Patty, my belly button doesn't button."

This was the comment she made to her daycare teacher today. LOL

I've been a bad blogger lately

I'm uninspired lately when it comes to writing. *sigh* I'm not really sure what the problem is, but I just can't seem to find anything to write about. There really isn't anything going on in my life other than the same ol' work, kids, and home. They aren't providing me with much to write about though.

I guess I could write about the UGA Spring Game and Spring practice or the upcoming NFL draft, but I can't seem to find the motivation for that either. You know it's bad when football doesn't inspire/motivate me. LOL

Here's to hoping that my "block" will end soon and I get back to posting. In the mean time please don't leave me. I promise I will get over it and be back soon. (Fingers crossed and all that! LOL)

7:00pm and I'm done for the night.........almost.

Okay, for those who don't know, Michael is in Chicago tonight for an interview with Southwest Airlines all day tomorrow (Please keep your fingers crossed for him.) What this means for me immediately is that I have kid duty all alone tomorrow morning. I'm not looking forward to it. I think I have it under control though. It is only 7pm and have both kids fed, bathed, and in the bed. The kitchen is clean and lunches are made. Now all that is left is for my own shower. I probably won't sleep well tonight knowing that Michael isn't coming home, but at least I have Georgia. As I will hear every little sound I know that she will alert me if it is an unusual sound. LOL Will she protect us? If you can call hiding behind me protection then yes. LOL

Tomorrow will be a challenge though. Getting both kids dressed, their teeth brushed, breakfast, Georgia taken out, lunches in boxes (not to mention in the cart ready to go), and everybody loaded up in the short amount of time we have is going to be interesting. I know that single parents do it everyday (heck, my mom did it), but I have no idea how they manage. I'd go nuts!!

I'll let y'all know how it goes.

Well, things went pretty well. I got everyone up and out the door on time and I didn't forget anything. This is good since I'll be doing it again next Tuesday. LOL

He cut her hair!!!! Luckily you have to look closely to even notice, but OMG!!! He cut so freakin' much of it. I have 2 pics to share. The first one is just the stuff I got off of her and out of her hair just by running my hands through it. The second is with the other that I found when I went into the living room and kitchen.

I'm sure I'll be able to tell more when I wash her hair tonight. If it is more noticeable I will post her pic later.
