Why am I doing this?

Speeding up again

Just when I think life is slowing down, here it comes! Too much to do this week! Why you ask? This is Dillon's birthday week! I can't believe he will be one. I am out of town a day and a half this week and I have to prepare for the party and company.

We made enough at the garage sale to buy another carseat - that was our goal. I managed to not spend any time with Jason this weekend, but he saw Curt a lot. I guess that is ok since they decided they needed to move to STL. Why be a Doctor when you can work at Walt's? I haven't quite got it through to my friends that they are to consult me before decisions like this are made!! After all, it is all about me!

Got to have a drink with Jane this weekend, ok two. I miss that...my body does not.

Other than that, Congratulations to Kara Butthead for finishing her Master's. Josh, make sure you call her Master now.

Two cats for sale!

I have had it, I am selling the cats. They are driving me insane! Bailey sleeps with us at night and Oscar does not. Mainly because he does not sleep...he trolls around getting into everything. So, Oscar is whinning wanting in the bedroom and Bailey is whinning wanting out of the bedroom. The fun part was as soon as I went to let Bailey out, she hid. Fun, fun! I am also getting sick of Bailey sleeping on my head when she is content to stay in the bedroom. Makes my life uncomfortable! They fight, chase each other and are pretty much good for nothing and I am sick of it. They are for sale!! For the right price I will throw in the litter boxes and some food. I think this sounds like a deal.

Garage sale this weekend at the Kippenberger's!!

When you put on your pants, do you button first or zip first?

In the shower, do you wash your hair first or your body first?

Here's what you were waiting for!

I know you were all hanging on the edge of your seats...yes, the two people who read this blog. One of those two already knows how Dillon did at daycare. He did ok. He napped - which is a miracle. She said he was a little fussy, but not bad. He cried when I got there and cried when he left. He cried when I left him this morning. I am trying to think, before too long he'll be running out of the car and not need me to walk him to the door! :-(

So there is something that puzzles me. People who read while they are driving on the highway. Actually, it does more than puzzle me, it makes me VERY ANGRY! DO NOT read and drive at the same time. How incredibly stupid do you have to be?!?! Not to mention it is VERY dangerous!!! (Ok, I used enough caps, this post is over before I keep going on and on.)

Starting day care:

Yep, it finally happened. Dillon started day care today. I am trying not to think about it. He is in a good place, but it is still rough. He is my baby...not that he is too much of a baby any more. He will be going to day care 3 days a week. It is an in-home day care and she does not have too many kids. It is here in Jeff, so I can take him and pick him up.

I am fighting ever urge not to call and check on him. Ok, I already did, but I got the answering machine. I am pleased that she will not step away from the kiddos to answer the phone!

More tomorrow to see if he survives his first day!

What turning 30 does to you!

Lately, I have been pondering deep thoughts about life. The older I get, the more certain things do not make sense to me. Like working all your life to maybe spend a few years in retirement doing what you want to do. I hate having to work. It is not that I don't like my job, there is just not enough free time when you work full time. I want to live a simple life...sitting on a front porch every night...watching Dillon play in the front yard...you know, white picket fence crap!

I have also been thinking a lot about having to know someone to get anywhere in life. I thought in high school this was BS, but the older I get the more it seems to ring true.

Now that I have enlightened you and cheered you up, have a good weekend!

Ever since I can remember, I love watching fireworks and parades. We went to a BBQ last night hoping Dillon would push back his bed time...no dice. Actually, he pushed it back about a hour. No good for watching fireworks. So, my husband being the wonderful man he is, told me to go with Curt and Krista to watch the fireworks on campus. They were cool! I figure next year Dillon will be ready for fireworks!

On another note, I was up for a hour last night thinking someone was breaking into our house...it was our air conditioner! I swear! I need to stop watching movies...Jason. He made me watch Hostel the other night. I was pretty stupid! The story could have been real good. I am glad we only spent 99 cents on it!

Spoiled Rotten

Yes, that is Dillon! He now screams if he is not getting his way, or if he is not happy (pick me up now). It is driving us insane! I know this is the age when they think they are the only ones on the earth, but this screaming hurts my ears. Just in case you are wondering, Jason never left this phase of childhood.

Happy 4th! Hopefully none of you are working like I am! Suck!
