This past week was SO stinkin hot here, that I had NO desire to put this HOT laptop on my lap to blog. We were still recovering from the pageant, and during this hottest week seemingly evah in Oklahellma- our AC broke. I mean, come on. When will the luck change? Tuesday night it was almost 90 degrees in here. You try sleeping in a 90' house and see if your chipper enough to blog. Plus, I had to pay like $200 bucks, I would have much rather spent on something else!
THEN, this past weekend was the annual Tri-Delta reunion over in Stillwater. It's so fun to get to go hang with college friends. Unfortunately, it also reminds you how old people are. *Ahem* Not me, of course. But OTHER people. And, it was 108 degrees out. Today's 98' seemed downright chilly.
Ok, then also- Ed, Farrah, Michael, and Billy all died! Wth? Almost more than I can take. I don't like people being all mean about Michael either. He was a music legend, a video pioneer- I mean, just remember his life before all the fame weirded him out. Please? Because when I think of him, I think of the Thriller album cover and not the missing nose and surgical mask. You can choose to do that like me too, right? Yes, I know you can. Ed and Farrah weren't so much of a shock as Michael and Billy, but sad nonetheless. I'm almost positive that Billy Mays will have died from the head injury the day before at the bad landing of his flight. Just like Natasha. This should make you all aware- if you hit your head, go get it checked out ASAP. No matter what!
Alright. Hope you enjoyed the 'Ketchup' post, as MckMama calls it. Seeing as how I am now watching sportscenter and I am the only one up- I am going to change the channel and relax. Feel free to comment with your favorite Michael Jackson song, and Billy Mays product if you like.

This one above is a growth chart, so to speak....and its on the wall by the laundry room. It looks really cool there on the blank wall, I think.
Oh. Look. It only took 11 hours.

I am sure some of you may have heard me talk about my cool list on twitter. The same twitter, by the way, that has caused many mommy bloggers Twitter Induced ADD- and we actually twitter what we should be blogging. (This explains a lot about my blog, lately). Oh, and those of you who don't "get" teh twitter...You cannot twitter properly with out a handheld device like, iphone, ipod touch, or blackberry. Laptop is OK, but straight from computer tweeting does not get you the same effect.
Ok, more about celebrity tweets. Most everybody follows a celebrity or two. I do follow all of them, since it has been my goal to get them to talk back to me or "@ me"- if you will. This is when, and only when, they get put on my cool list. (as if anyone cares about my list, but I'm pretending they do, ahem)
So, first, @KathyIreland @ed me. Then, @PGA_JohnDaly. And now, @AlRoker, @TylerFlorence, & @KirstieAlley. And, also, by default, @NiaVardalos (from My Big Fat Greek Wedding and now My Life in Ruins) because she @ed my friend GreekGrits so she gets on the list too. I also give props to a few celebrities. These are celebrities that FOLLOWED ME, before I followed them. Those are: @MCHammer, @MariaShriver, and @Schwarzeneggar.(um, special props to the person who knows what we were talking about! LOL)
So, there you have it, the cool celebrity list. I will keep tweeting and see who I can add. Do any of you have any cool stories to add??

I have a lot of things I think of blogging, but then the time to do it lapses. For instance, the whole JK8 saga. Driving me mad- and not for any reason that anyone seems to be talking about. It's because its one of my kids favorite shows to watch. Therefore, when they are negatively plastered all over magazines and tabloids, and TV news and tabloid shows- then I have to explain. Doesn't anyone realize a lot of fans are kids?? I've also been extrememly ANNOYED with the fact that somehow when I make something that someone ordered, then that really isn't exactly what they wanted- it still seems to be MY problem. That issue has caused me serious stress all week. I still have a headache from it.
Oh, and today is my birthday.
So, I am trying to re-vamp here. I hope you can stick it out if you are still here, through the lull. Trying to get more oraganized with writing so I can be sure and join the blog carnivals I usually do. And I will have to work that in around summer stuff.
Feel free to chime in!

Sorry to have been neglecting the ol' blogger. I have been busy with these two.
The first few days of school being out are always a, um, challenge.
Just like the challenge of Grayce making this slide and plunge with NO floaties (like she has on above). I've been working with her on her swim strokes & breathing. And sure enough- by the time we left today, she had slid, plunged and swam to the edge without any flotation devices about 15 times.
She's almost a fish. I can't believe she has come so far in just a couple of days. We're working on the brother. For some reason he decided he can't swim. Even though he can. Not sure about water regression. Anyone? The fact that she can do it only slightly irked him enough that he did do the slide, once. That was enough for him. Just so she knew she didn't have anything up on him. Understand the challenge part now?
