Taylor and Molly had a sleepover at the house this weekend. I didn't realize how much soda two silly girls could consume when no one was looking! LOL! They drank an entire two liter of Pepsi, ate most of a large pepperoni pizza, half of a large order of cheese sticks and each had a candy bar! Sugar and Caffeine fueled them all night long! They stayed up until 5:30 in the morning! The played Wii Boogie Superstar most of the night. The game is a scream. You have to sing and dance for points to get new clothes and hairstyles. On a side note...if you want to get in shape, Wii sports will kick your butt. I hurt for three days after boxing for 15 mins. So long gym membership....!
Where was I? Oh yeah!I woke up around 8:00 and went downstairs expecting to find two hungry girls looking for breakfast....NOT EVEN CLOSE! I peeped inside Taylor's room and among the clothes, dolls, books and magazines, two sleepy girls were piled up in a twin bed. It looked like a war zone. Ha!
My daughter has a doorbell to her room and she had posted a sign that read "Please ring bell, Girls Only". (The sign was stuck to the door with the equivalent of duct tape...but that's a story for a different day) I waited....patiently.....for the tweenagers to emerge, but alas, no such luck. At 11:30 there were still no signs of life sooooooo I decided to ring the doorbell...LOL! Needless to say the sign is down and I have been banned from the bell.
Molly and Taylor had a great time.

Pictures from Iraq

My step-dad recently took a job overseas in Iraq. There was a need for electricians over there and he decided he would sign up for the job! You should have seen the application they have to fill out was so long and kind of scary. There is a section on being held hostage! WOW! I couldn't even imagine.
We hear from him several times a week and he sends cards to the kids. Taylor even had "funny looking money" in her last letter.
Tom sent pictures last week. He says it's very safe but he misses home.

I Hate Spiders

This morning I was attacked. I was in my office, working my way down my to do list.I reached inside the cabinet in my desk and pulled out the checkbook....and then I screamed! When I opened the checkbook, there was a spider, the size of my fist, fangs dripping venom, out for blood. It was HORRIFIC!
My co-workers came to my rescue. My boss killed the spider and then for good measure, he sprayed my office down with bug spray.
I eventually returned to the scene of the crime, but I've been watching spiders all day. I hate spiders...
