Here's the kids with the goo we made
We went to "Stand for Kids" Day activities today. ( It's a small children's activity fair) The kids made lots of craft stuff, and had a great time. One of the things they had was "GOO", basically it's elastic clay and even gave everyone a sample and the recipe, so I thought I'd share.

*1 cup water
*1 cup Borax
Mix until borax is dissolved

Mix together
* 2 cups water
*2 cups glue
and food coloring

Combine the two and continue mixing together, then drain off excess water, and you have GOO!

Looks to be a busy weekend after all!

The girls have a sleepover with their Brownie troop ( too bad nothing cool like Marna had at the zoo = ( ), and I'm going to a company BBQ this afternoon. Not a fun get togethher and hang out type of BBQ, it's a kiss butt get to know the new company we're merging with BBQ. But it's out of the house for me which is a major thing these days! DH is working all weekend = ( Maybe I'll manage to get some projects here at home done.

I go back to the Doc for me knee on Monday, think PT thoughts for me! I asked last time and he didn't think I'd need Pt, but I've had no to - progress this week, so I'm hoping some PT would help. My big fear is that after it's all said and done, it won't be any better than it was before the surgery. That thought really depresses me, and even he said it's a posibility. I am hating not being able to walk to the park wit the kids, not do yardwork, not do so many of the things that I love to do. Hell, I"m 31 not 81, but that's sure how my body feels right now. Not to mention it would be nice to get a full paycheck again!

Next weekend is "Cinco De Mayo", being this close to the Mexican border it's a big deal! Our city does a big festival at the park, lots of crafts, carnival rides, bands, beer the works. I'm trying to talk a friend into coming down and hanging out with us there, I hope they can make it! = )
Oh ManJulie Jury Duty??? UGGGH! Can your employer write a letter to excuse you? ( I've done that for people before shhhh!)
KariAwesoome new look for your blog! = )

(Dominant Extrovert Abstract Feeler )

Like just 6% of the population you are a PERFORMER (DEAF)--personable, self-assured, and excellent under pressure. You are extroverted and strong-willed, which, in combination means you are good with people and aren't willing to let opportunity pass you by. Congratulations. I'm sure all the peons you've stepped on never saw it coming and didn't feel a thing.

You like being naked.

Anyhow, you have formidable creative talents, and you often following what your heart tells you instead of your logical mind. Your exuberance can earn you many friends and admirers, despite your ambition, or it can intimidate the less confident into keeping their distance. It's also possible you're Madonna.

Thanks Gadwall

I was a mean mommy today!

The girls asked at the last minute for me to make them lunches for school. No problem I made them, pretty good ones even. Sandwhich, carrots, apple and a special dessert. After the girls leave for school I go to the kitcen to see lunch boxes still sitting on the cabinet, guess what the kids had for dinner????? YEP you got it, wonder if they forget again tomorrow?
This was sent to us several years ago and Jerry has been saving it to make a billboard for our front yard! LOL

Seeing as there have been several young men hanging out in our front yard to play with Sarah lately, I figured we had better pull it out and at least print it ( the billboard can wait awhile) so I thought I'd share!

Ten Simple Rules for Dating My Daughter

Ten Simple Rules for Dating My Daughter

Rule One:
If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a
package, because you're sure not picking anything up.

Rule Two:
You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them.

Rule Three:
I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, in order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist.

Rule Four:
I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a "barrier method" of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate, when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.
Rule Five:
It is usually understood that in order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is "early."

Rule Six:
I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry.
Rule Seven:
As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like changing the oil in my car?

Rule Eight:
The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness. Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka - zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong
romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies which features chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better.

Rule Nine:
Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged,
dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the
all-knowing, merciless god of your universe. If I ask you where you are
going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the
whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and
five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me.

Rule Ten:
Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the
sound of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice
paddy near Hanoi. When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my
head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my
daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit
your car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password,
announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home
safely and early, then return to your car - there is no need for you to
come inside. The camouflaged face at the window is mine.

{{Chris}}There was a similar conversation taking place at my house earlier about how everything I do is somehow wrong, yet I had the nerve to joke around about him not doing something perfectly! GRRRRRRRRRRRRR
Sandie Well it looks like you survived "the pit", glad to hear it! UGGGH about the weather!

We got an awesome package from Sandie from Flat Stanley's visit to her, complete with a newspaper he grabbed, and his name tag from volunteering at the local hospital! = ) TOO KEWL!
Nora Here's hoping you can feel the sun shining through the fog and know it's there!

LOVED the translations list! ROFL
TracyLOVED the vacation pictures, sp glad you got to go see Pam, I know how much you missed her! Speaking of which WE miss you on the boards! = )
{{Dee Dee}} We all have ways of dealing with fear, don't let yourself be overcome with guilt in dealing with this! Your daddy's denial is also a way of dealing with fear. I pray that as a family you have the stregnth to pull together no matter what the outcome or what is thrown your way!
Just had to say my hubby's being an ASSHOLE! I'll be happy to give more deatils later but just needed to get that out of my system right now!

OK I'm so happy to be me again! ROFL For the past several hours, I've been Bitch Kitty.

I gotta say that even though the code was frustrating, I am loving playing around with the graphics! I get into phases like this where I do grapics a lot then don't want anything to do with them for awhile, same with just about every project I undertake. Is that just me, or do other people do that too?
Do you need malpractice insurance to give someone's blog a facelift? I think I might should have! LMAO Trust me you'll find out who and what soon.
