I wonder.....

I wonder what the apartment people would think if I had the pvc fence installation guys come out and put a small fence around the back of my apartment. LOL I so want to have a place where I can send the kids out to play and I can let the dog out and I don't have to be right there with them. I don't mind going with the kids to the playground, but it would be so much easier if I could just send them outside to play. I would also get a lot more done around the house. They could run off energy while I made dinner or cleaned the house. I guess we just need to start looking at houses again. *sigh* I'm not sure where we are going to end up though. Are we going to eventually move to Florida or are we going to stay here? I go back and forth on it almost daily. I want to go home and be closer to my family, but I'm not thrilled with the school system down there. Here I know that they would get a great education. It's definitely a dilemma. *sigh*

The Cocktail Party!

The time is here. This is the one game every year that I hate! Yes you read that right! I absolutely HATE this game. It makes me nervous and I get really bitchy during the game. Usually doesn't matter if we are winning or losing. I just get so passionate about it and my blood pressure tends to rise. I throw things at the tv. I curse............loudly.

The hatred for the Gators runs deep. There is no other team that I hate as I hate them. Since I was a little girl. The hatred grew as I grew. The head honchos of the team haven't helped. More egotistical, self serving, unsportsman like men I've never seen. Their egos are so inflated that I wonder if they could use some Stacker to deflate it. LOL I really really dislike them and it makes the hatred of the entire team that much more powerful.

So, all that said. My advice to you for this weekend. DO NOT CALL ME! I cannot promise to be civil. I'll be growling until after the game. If we win you can call right after the game. If we lose I'd wait a couple days. LOL It takes that long (and sometimes longer) for me to get over it.

UGA 52 (7-1) LSU 38

Wow! That is just about all I can say about this game! It was definitely fun to watch that's for sure. The 52 was the most points we've ever scored at Tiger Stadium. We went down to Baton Rouge to play some football and boy did we!! On LSU's first play from scrimmage we intercepted the ball and ran it back for a TD! We ended up with 3 interceptions, but I wasn't really happy with our defense if you want to know the truth. We couldn't stop the run to save our lives. Their big RB had 144 yards. Way too many!! They threw for over 200 too so not great. We have to fix that!!! We also had some really bad penalties. Not as many today, but still had some that hurt us big time. Gotta fix that too!! Can't do that against Florida next week and expect to win!!

Today's stats:

1. Stafford was 17 of 26 for 249 yards and 2 TDs.
2. Moreno ran for 163 yards on 21 carries and 1 TD.
3. We had 3 interceptions.
4. Gamble intercepted twice and ran both back 40+ yards for TDs. (Yep, BOTH of them!!!)
5. Total rushing yards 194 (-10 at the end when we were taking a knee so really 204)
6. Total yards 443.
7. We threw to 9 different receivers and had 4 different rushers (including A.J. Green! LOL)

Really not a bad day. We never trailed in the game.

Next week is the hated Gators. I will be sitting right here, but I don't want to talk to anybody or see anybody. That game always stresses me out and makes me incredibly irritable. I'll not be good company for anybody! LOL

Here we go!!

The game is starting. What game, you ask? The UGA/LSU game of course. My Dawgs have traveled to Baton Rouge today. We are an already banged up football squad. I hope they went down there with good travel insurance. We can't afford to lose anymore starters to injury. It's going to be a hard fought game on both sides of the ball that is for sure. Am I nervous? Hell yeah!!

OMG!!! First play from scrimage and we intercept for a touchdown!!!!!! WOOHOO!!!! Let's hope play like that continues!!!

I'll be back later with post game posting.

Well that was stressful!

Ari had to have some testing done at Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital today. Nothing MAJOR, but still stressful.

She didn't like the ultra sound at all. Said it hurt. Then the catheter was HORRIBLE!! She screamed and screamed. I was able to be in there with her when they did that, but had to leave when they did the xrays. She screamed during those too because she said the "camera" was too loud. None of us could comfort her. *sigh* Then when she went to pee afterward she cried saying that it hurt when the pee started. I finally got her to pee when we got home. She still says it hurts. I wonder if maybe they scratched her when the put the cath in.

She does have renal reflux on the left side. So basically that means that she will be on a low dose of antibiotics until she outgrows it. Not happy about the meds, but not entirely positive that is what will happen. I will know more on Friday when we go to her next dr. appt. That was just what the dr at the hospital said they do for it. I'll see what HER dr says.

A step back in time

I was looking at some old videos and just had to share them...........again. Heehee!!

UGA 24 (6-1) Vandy 14

I have to say that was a pretty good game. I enjoyed it. There were a few times I was rolling my eyes or wanting to throw things at the tv. That's to be expected with this game though. Vandy always plays us well. I hated seeing the dejected looks on their faces though. They have nothing to be ashamed of really. I know I'll be pulling for them the rest of the season. Like I have on all other games with the exception of today. LOL

Knowshon and A.J. both had amazing games today. I really do love watching those kids play football!! Our defense had 2 interceptions although there were like 3 others that should have been picked off. Stafford threw 2 himself. I didn't count the penalties today, but I think we had fewer than normal. Feel free to correct me on that one if you know for sure. LOL

Here are the stats for the day.

1. Stafford was 13 of 23 for 194 yards and 2 TDs.
2. Moreno ran for 172 on 23 carries and 1 TD (I think he is at 11 on the season).
3. Green caught 7 passes for 132 yards.
4. Total rushing yards was 231.
5. Total overall yards was 426.

Up next week is LSU. Not incredibly nervous about that game, but will be anxiously watching. This game is @ LSU and that is always a hard place to play so it will not be an easy game by any stretch of the imagination.


Whiny children

Ugh! Both of them went to bed late last night (that was our fault) and both of them woke up whiny and grouchy this morning. I'm ready to have them take naps already. I know that naps just make for rough evenings so I'm going to try to avoid it today, but dang if they don't stop whining I'm going to pull my hair out!!!! UGH!!!!


I wonder. Do all computers come with a video card or do you have to purchase those as extras? Not that we necessarily NEED one, but do they make that big of a difference? I know they give you better graphics on your computer and that they are good for video games. We don't play a lot of games on the computer though. A friend of mine who does a lot of computer stuff said that we should get one. I just don't know if we need to spend the money on one. Ya know. I'm thinking we are fine just the way we are. LOL

It's getting to be that time of year.

Christmas. I've been shopping already. I'm actually almost done with the kids and I know what I'm getting Michael. The one thing I'm unsure about is what kind of game system to get the kids. Should I go with the PS3 or something else? We have an old Playstation here already, but we only have one game for it. LOL My dad has a Wii and the kids love it. I kinda want to go more educational with the games and go with the Leapster. Ugh. Decisions! I know that regardless of what we get the kids are going to have a blast with it. I already know from visiting my mom and dad that I am going to have to limit the time on the games big time! Joshua will play all day if you let him. This is why I've held off so long in getting them any kind of game system.

Fun at the park!

It was a really nice day to go to Centennial Park. It did get a little cold there at the end, but we all had a blast.

Here are some pictures from our day.

A house divided

It's not really that big of a deal in our house. Just more fun than anything..............................Unless of course UGA loses. Then well it can get pretty ugly. LOL Bet you would have never guessed that, huh?

Tomorrow at 11am we will both be sitting in front of the tv and not saying much to each other. I don't rub it in when UGA wins and he doesn't when Vandy wins. Can't say the same for his family though. *sigh*

We went to Centennial Park today and of course I had Ari in her UGA cheerleading outfit. Isn't she cute? Heehee!!

UGA 26 (5-1) Tennessee 14

WOOHOO!!! This weekend I was in the North Georgia Mountains with my two best friends, Nat and Nicol. Every year we do this on the UGA/UT weekend. Nat and I watch the game and Nicol is banned to the basement of the cabin. She is a jinx to our Dawgs you see. She has never seen them win a game. Neither live nor on tv. She is not allowed to watch the games. (Oh and yes she watched the UGA/Bama game! UGH!!! Yes she got in trouble for it!!)

Anyway, Nat and I watched the game on Saturday and I have to say that I was incredibly happy with the outcome. We played well on both sides of the ball. Stafford had a career day. Moreno rushed for over 100 yards (against a stingy Vols defense supposedly). And our defense shut down the Vols running game. Yes, I would have been happier if we had gotten into the end zone instead of so many field goals. I'm not complaining though. A win against the hated Vols is a win. Heehee!!

Here are the stats for the day:

1. Stafford was 25 of 36 with 310 yards!
2. Moreno ran for 101 yards.
3. Massaquoi caught 5 passes for 103 yards! (he had an amazing touchdown catch too!)
4. We threw to 8 different receivers.
5. UT had a total of 1 yard of rushing (if I did the math right). Way to go Dawg D!!!!

It was a fun game to watch for me. And imagine....................I didn't get ANY texts from the UT fans in my life this year! What's up with that? They enjoy sending those when the outcome is different! No, I don't send them when my beloved Dawgs come out victorious. I should though!!

Up this week is Vandy. Now usually I don't have anything against Vandy and actually pull for them when they play anyone other than UGA. This year it's going to be a tougher game(although it tends to be a tough game every year) than usual. Vandy is doing really well this year. They've only lost 1 game. It's homecoming for us too. That usually spells trouble when we schedule Vandy for that game. LOL Nicol is going to Athens this weekend for a reunion of sorts. Don't worry fellow Dawg fans, I've warned her not to go into the stadium!!!

ETA: We did get some bad news from Saturday's game. We have lost Vince Vance for the rest of the year. He injured his knee. We are going to feel his absence. *sigh*

Our drawn by Joshua

This is Ari, me, and Michael. Notice the baby. LOL

Home from my girls' weekend

It was such a wonderful weekend. I was in pjs the entire time. Just got dressed this morning when we had to leave. We did absolutely nothing all weekend. It was great!! It's always nice to be with my best friends! We talked and read books. We were actually in the same room for hours and didn't say a word. LOL All of us reading. We have talked about doing this more than once a year. No definite plans were made, but it sure would be nice to see them more than once a year.

I came home to a sick kiddo though. Ari is feverish and throwing up. *sigh* It never fails. At least one of them gets sick on this weekend every time. Last year they both had Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease. *sigh*

Girls' Weekend!!


Mom is in the air right now and should land in less than an hour. Nat just called and she is at the airport. She lands at 10:30. One more night and then I have a nice relaxing weekend. Good friends. Good books. Good movies. Football. No kids! What more could a preggo mommy want? Heehee!!

Preggo hormones!

Ugh! Ok, I just watched the Larry Munson video lower on this page. I've watched it many many times already. I'm sitting here bawling. Yeah. Crazy. I know. I just love to listen to that man call a game.

Here are some clips for your enjoyment. *sigh* God I'm going to miss his voice calling my Dawgs.

How cute is this???

OMG!! I want it!!! Ivy over at Home Ec 101 is giving away a diaper cake!! It is the cutest thing!!! I soooo want it!! It would come in so handy when this baby comes!! I need to learn how to make them too. I've got friends who would LOVE them at a shower!!

Hate them!!! Hate them!!!!

ACK!!! Spiders!!!! OMG!!! We have so many freakin' spiders in this apartment. If you know me at all you know that I absolutely HATE spiders!!!!! They freak me out!! I can deal with snakes much easier than these dang spiders. I need to go buy some spider traps. Blech!! I can't stand it. Can we move? NOW? Oh and since Michael works second shift guess who gets to figure out a way to kill the dang things! Yep you got it. ME!! I can tell you want doesn't kill them! Oven cleaner. Windex. Pledge. Bathroom cleaner. Do you know what will kill them? Hairspray. Yep, stiffens them right up. Works really well.


Do you have term life insurance on your kids? I have life insurance on both myself and Michael. I also have it on all of the kids. My question is this? Is this a waste of money? Granted it doesn't cost a lot and after 10 years it is paid up and I don't have to pay anymore. I'm just wondering if I could save some money (and we all know that with this economy we need to cut costs whenever we can) by not having it on the kids. Is that bad?

Still happening.

*sigh* I still have that pregnancy acne thing going on. Ugh!! I swear it wasn't this bad with my other two kids. *sigh* I've tried several different things. My friends have recommended stuff. Readers of this blog have recommended stuff. What have you found to be the best acne treatments for you? Shouldn't it go away soon? Am I going to have to suffer with it my entire pregnancy or like most other bad side effects of pregnancy it goes away in the second trimester?

OMG! Chocolate cake for one!!!

This could be really really bad!!! It only takes 5 minutes!!!


1 Coffee Mug
4 tablespoons flour (plain flour, not self-rising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
