Grocery shopping

UGH. I just spent an hour and $170.00 at the grocery store and feel like I came home with toilet paper (very important, I realize), cat food and about 3 meals and snacks.

How does that happen?? I had a list and everything.

Blog of the week????

I'm sorry...I've been Blog of the Week on my website, and I haven't updated at all.

Does anyone know how to remove TONS of ink from my daughter's arms? She found a pen this morning while I was getting the boys ready for school and her arms are covered. When I discovered this, she said "Mommy, yucky gross."

How on earth can Chloris Leachman STILL be on DWTS????


Health Updates and Miscellaneous Thoughts

Dad: he does have cancer again. They aren't sure where; it is very very early and he will be starting hormone therapy on Oct. 13 to hopefully stop whatever is growing.

DJ: may be having seizures. :( Waiting for a call back from the ped on getting into a neurologist.

Trevor took a shoe off while I was driving home from preschool. He chucked it at my head. Luckily for him (and, I guess, me) he has not developed perfect aim and it missed. I haven't been that angry at him since he unbuckled his straps on the car seat and walked up to me in the van and said "Hi Momma!"

Is Super Glue considered a safety hazard? Would it be bad to superglue them into their car seats?

Kids say the darndest things, Vol 2

Emily recently did this at school:

It was raining outside. Aimee, her speech therapist, was there observing her and related this to me.

They ahve a little "table" at school that they fill with sand, rice, beads, etc. for sensory play. On this day it was filled with rice.

Someone mentioned that it was raining, and my darling, sweet, cute, little princess took two HUGE handfuls of rice and gleefully threw them in the air and shouted "RAININ! RAININ! IT RAININ!"

This afternoon, I was actually wearing 2 bracelets (I usually only wear it if I am going out so the kids automatically say "bye momma" if they see me with bracelets on). DJ looks over at me and says "Momma bling!"

I seriously have no idea where he learned that from. Do they say "bling" on Max and Ruby??

My father

My father was diagnosed with prostate cancer 3 days after Emily was born. For 2 years he has been cancer free; however, at his last appt, his PSA levels were back up and he has had a bone and a CAT scan to see if it has spread.

He gets the results tomorrow at 1:30. I'm scared. Really, really scared.

Not only do I love him, but my kids are infatuated with Papa and he's only 72. I want them to know him for a long, long time to come.

If you don't watch America's Got Talent, you'll have no idea what I'm talking about, but that's okay.

Nuttin' But Stringz should have won. Period.
