I'm still working on names. They are suppose to both be boys. Knock on wood. They said it would take a few days for them to get use to the new enviroment and start playing and singing but they were singing a little bit ago even though they've been here less than a day. I'm going to give them the weekend to adjust before I fool with them much though.

We were discussing the story about the car dealership where if you come in and buy a Chrysler Le Baron they would sell you a PT Cruiser for $1. The commercial kept saying "For a Buck" and finally Son#2 looked at us and trying to keep a straight face said "Yeah but do you have to kill it first?" We both looked at him puzzled and he then said "The buck, the deer. Do you have to kill it first?" Needless to say we got quite a laugh out of that one.
We watched Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 the day they were home from school and in one of the scenes, one of the girls is working in the theatre on a play and she leans against the prop wall and falls through it. Son#3 very seriously asks "Who would build a fake wall anyway?" Oh my kids are so deprived. The look on his face though was so hilarious, he was dead serious.It was a funny week here all around though. From me trying to figure out what my daughter meant when she said Rab Lat and then finding it so hilarious when I did (I love it when people get their words twisted up; maybe it's just me but I find this so amusing) to the boys dancing around the house all silly. I like that my kids are growing up, I hate to lose them but it's so great to see what kind of people they are going to be.
Now you hop on over and check out MamaKat's writing assignments, Pick one of your very own and Enjoy. We all need a little prompting sometimes.

First I combined Prompt #1 and #2:
I thought I saw you
But it was just a strange dream
Come back to me soon
Pretty good haiku if I do say so myself. And yes I counted, over and over again, on my fingers.
Now Prompt #4
How to get along with your enemies.
The Top 5 tricks.
3.Watch them try to figure out why you don't care.
After completing this process they should be so thoroughly confused that they are sucking up to you to try to figure you out. Then just repeat steps 1 through 5.
Now scoot on over and try this out yourself or just see
what all of the other wonderful bloggers have written.

Most vampire series, whether it be shows or books, are written in a way that make it impossible for them to be set in the real world. This book is not like that, it could very well take place in the world that we live in and not some fictional world. Twilight is a book that you just enjoy reading, whether it's the vampires, the realism, the romance or some combination of them all it is just a great read. When Bella moves to this small town, in an attempt to make life easier for her mom, she thinks she is just biding her time until she can start the rest of HER life but instead she finds her future. There are points in the book where I would think that the romance was being laid on a little thick but then I would remember that this was written as a young adult book. Meyer definitely has a great style of describing the attraction between the two main characters though. It makes you remember those moments of first initial attraction to someone and imagine them magnified hundred fold by being able to "smell their blood" and not just their cologne. Bella is one of the best characters that I have seen created in a book in a long time. She is so believable and endearing. The perfect combination of head-strong and caring that any person could ever hope to be. You will be completely enthralled by this book and ready to read the next immediately.
P.S. I keep waiting to get the next book in the series and in the meantime can't wait to see the movie version of this one that comes out next week. I'll let you know what I think of that too.

They are in no particular order, just as they came to me.
1. Chargers for electronic devices. Couldn't they make a universal system? I have more than one drawer full of these things.
2. Alarm clocks on commercials. I hear this enough I don't need it in my commercials too.
3. People who think the world owes them something. Everyone has to work or should have to. A company doesn't owe you just because you show up everyday.
4. Drivers who won't turn right on Red. Why would you set there when it is perfectly acceptable for you to go? Just turn already.
5. Someone with a full cart of groceries in a 10 item or less isle. These lanes are there for a reason and it's not for you. Be considerate, Please.
6. E-mail forwards where they don't delete the previous info. so they get really long. I hate having to scroll for an hour to get to the message that ends up being junk anyway. Just delete the info. from the person before you.
7. My kids saying "Huh" or "What" before I can even finish the question. You definately can't hear the question/comment if your already questioning it before it is finished.
8. Politicians who don't take down their campaign signs. The election is over, do the responsible thing and pay someone to remove and get rid of your signs.
9. People who are always late. How hard is it to start a few minutes earlier and actually be somewhere on time?
10. All of you who visit my blog but don't leave comments. I just had to throw that in but really it is annoying.

First a few recent pictures.
From "Big Baby"
on down to Little Goblin.
The last of
for the year.-->
Something I noticed recently---- Kid Rock's song All Summer Long (and don't get me wrong I like this song) is a clever remake of Deana Carter's song Strawberry Wine. Think about the similarities and you'll see.
