Christmas Eve Memory

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house.....

yada, yada, yada....

sitting in the rocking chair, watching tv with the little ones and out of nowhere I hear a "thump".
I turn the tv down and the older one says, "Mom, turn it up, I can't hear."
"Shhhhh," I reply, "I thought I heard something."
We sat. Waited. We actually heard sleigh bells coming from above outside.
Child jumps for the window and I tell her, "No! We gotta get to bed. I bet that's really Santa!"
So she runs for her bedroom.... en route, she proclaims, "Holy Smokes, Mom!!"

Now that was the funniest thing that happened. Well, following a close second would be at my parent's house..... the image pulling into the driveway and seeing my father on a ladder with rabbit ears and duct tape getting ready for the Cowboys to lose.

Don't get any bright ideas there, Missy.

Little sister watching big sister getting a haircut.
Why can't they stay little? I've demanded and they
just don't listen.

I will admit is cute. I looked at her after the first major haircut and saw, for the first time, an older child.
That makes me feel just a tad bit older. I'm going to go crawl into a depression now. Sniff, sniff.

The Before

The After

Yes, I cried.
And yes, she rolled her eyes.

I will be celebrating this year with this holiday.

Giddy up!

Spears on the naughty list?

I think that the more shocking news that Ms. Spears would be involved in something unethical is that K-Fed could write a whole book. Read the latest scandal here.

Found it...

...another time waste. Not sure what the point of this is, but it kept me intrigued for a few moments. It reminded me of the bubble wrap for a second until I figured out...all on my own...that there was more to it. Past that...well, you got me. I'm blonde remember?

My shout out...

...for tonight is for I use it on a regular basis for work, school and, yes, I am a nerd, for fun.
Tonight, sadly, I had to use it for my daughter's homework. We'll just pretend she is in honor's classes and not in elementary school.
To share my experience of delightful research on what a predicate is, click here for the answer.

Adoro español

It's time to declare my love for another language. I now working on another essay for English, yet this one is 1200 words. I think I spilled some brain cells out of my little head somewhere. I think I will take a break and go look for them.

Speaking of breaks...

sometimes I like to play this refocus my thoughts. Yea, sounds good. Refocus. Good word.

Ding Ding

The end of round one...two? I won the computer war with a little help from a local computer nerd. Sometimes I can hang in there and fix the problem myself...but this time I had to pull out the big guns. My computer nerd came by, fixed me up and had a little fun chuckling at me. Laugh it up. I got a 95 on my last English essay. My mom is proud and I am working on the next assignment. Well, sort of. Let's just call this post a brain break.

A perfect example...........

of Texas Weather as I look at tomorrow's forecast.

Kat fight!!

This computer and I are about to go 'round and 'round!!
I thought it was sooo nice of the little online college to offer free downloads.....
so I took them up and upgraded to Windows XP.
Yeah, well, they can have it back.
Something has me stumped with my internet connection....which is good, but still not working quite right.
I blame this for my recent 85 on an English essay. Would my professor give me a blonde break and give me 5 points handicap for my instable brain?
I guess not, so here I sit with s-l-o-w internet connection and a slow brain.
Maybe I'll have a better grade and solve this problem all by tomorrow.
Keep your fingers crossed but, I tell ya: DO NOT hold your breath!
