Oh Mars!

You know what I want, a yummy mint 3 Musketeers bar. When I saw the commercial I almost fell off the couch. Looked at the husband said we need to go to the store. Our lovely commissary is behind the times didn’t have it. Tomorrow will do the hunt for this mint dream. Has anyone else tried? If so what are your thoughts?

I know I am ….

a bad influence ..ummm shoot me then.

When my little one’s undies are showing out of his pants I go … Nobody wants to see that.
When he picks his nose I go…  Nobody wants to see that.
When he goes streaking around the house I go… Nobody wants to see that. 
See the pattern….

When a kid in my son’s class picked his nose my son goes… Nobody wants to see that.
I almost choked to death gasping for air. While the other parent gave me a glare.  

Then my son goes…  that boy was picking his nose doesn’t he know…Nobody wants to see that?  

Nosey Neighbor

It’s hot we leave the windows open to get any breeze we can. They don’t have a/c  in this housing just ceiling fans. Found out we don’t have any privacy with the windows open. We were on the patio the other night about nine-ish finishing up a game of poker. Heard a child scream out at us to be quiet that he had to wake up at 4 am. Me feeling horrible ended the game, we called it a night. The next day I go over to apologize the lady proceeds to tell me about my private conversations I have had with my husband. I was on the verge of crying felt so violated. She then tells me… well if you have any parties invite us we would love to come. ummm is that like blackmail? Went through that day and the next thinking omg omg omg. Didn’t realize I was that loud on the phone, started using the phone after closing all doors and windows. Then found her staring out her window into my house so figured when she hears me talk either walks over to my windows or goes to her son’s bedroom and listens at the window. I thought I needed a hobby this chic needs a life. Didn’t realize I was that exciting for someone to waste their time to see what I say on the phone.  Couple days later had a poker night at my house about 16 people I am sure she hates us. But I won a 100 bucks, how cool is that?! We are slowly meeting new people, funny thing is our friends from Quantico are moving out here. Least when the husband leaves for Iraq, my old friends will keep me from driving over the edge from the neighbor.  

School has started, YAY!

Little Man has started Kindergarten, yes I was holding back the tears. He just walked in the classroom like he has been there before. He has never been to a daycare setting or preschool so I was so amazed how well he was listening and fitting in. He comes home talks all about his new friends and all the fun he had at school. 

We have been running around this month like crazy people. Went to Reno for a couple of weeks while the husband was in the middle of the mountains training. It’s been 6 years since I have lived there and actually missed it. Reno is one of those places you hate being there but when you leave you tend to miss it. Haven’t done much knitting or dyeing of yarn due to this cast. Derby is on hold till November and to be honest not sure if I will be skating this year. Maybe should give my body a rest seems like I have been hurt for 2 years in actuality I have.

I am so behind in life I feel like screaming!

Pamper Chef anyone? I’m having a Pamper Chef Party on Thursday, for all my friends and family who can’t attend can order online and their purchases goes toward my party. If anyone would like to order email me and I will send an invite.
