What's your Real Age?


Take this test and find out. Be honest. I'm almost 31, but my real age is 11.3! LMAO! I'm expected to live till 92! *fingers crossed*

Leave your Real Age in a comment below!

Just another "doggone" day.........

This is how I found the dogs on my bed this afternoon. They still have a love/hate relationship. Zoe chases Mia around the house and annoys her many times during the day. Other times, I find them like this! LOL! Crazy dogs!

Remember the Sarah Silverman video to Jimmy Kimmel? Well Jimmy made a response to her and got a SLEW of celebrities to participate. This is one of the funniest things I've ever seen!

I finally got my answer!

If you're zooming down 35 near where we live, you'll see this place off to your right if you're headed toward San Marcos. I've driven by it several times and always forgot to look it up and see what it was.

Today I didn't forget. Now I know! LMAO!

I thought that they made everything....

I had to bake cupcakes for Kyra's Valentine party tomorrow. I found two pans at Walmart with covers on them, so I picked them up. But I looked high and low for something disposable to bake/keep cupcakes in and I couldn't find anything! Yes, they have disposable, foil muffin pans, but I want something with a COVER! My pans will have to come home tomorrow and that will be a PITA (pain in the a$$) for Kyra since she rides the bus home. I'm going to the party, but will have to leave early because I have to go get Maeve from school. Parties galore! On top of that, Maeve has picture day at school and Kyra's class is having an author's museum before their party!

Needless to say, they are going to bed soon. Busy day tomorrow!

If anyone knows of any disposable cupcake pans WITH COVERS, then please point me in the right direction!

Just a typical Saturday afternoon......

Last night, we got a visit from two of my cousins and my sister. My sister ended up spending the night. The kids LOVED that. She even took them to San Marcos shopping!

Lisa left earlier and the girls had lunch and now I hear them singing some silly song that they made up. Kyra is being her usual bossy self to Maeve. And Maeve is listening and following instructions to a T! LMAO!

I just love the big sister/little sister relationship. It's like I'm taking a trip back in time when I see those two playing together. They can only be so quiet for so long though. Then the yelling begins! ;)

I'm sinking.....

There's one more new episode of "Friday Night Lights" left. It airs on Friday, February 9th. I seriously hope that this writer's strike ends soon because I am sitting on pins and needles over here. I've said it time and time again. This is the BEST SHOW on television. I usually watch it live on Friday nights or tape it and watch it after the kids are in bed. My dad is here this weekend, so I watched it this (Saturday) morning. Thank God I did.

I had to pause it several times and take a break. It's so compelling. The characters are real. There is at least one or more that you can totally relate to. The stories are wonderful. Today I noticed that there are a lot of mannerisms on the show. Sometimes a character will say something and the other character won't, but they'll pan to their face and you'll know exactly what they are thinking.

I cannot begin to express how much I love this show. I can't believe that it hasn't garnered more awards. I can't believe that NBC chooses NOT to promote the hell out of it. I can't believe that it's 2nd season is over at just 15 episodes. My heart is broken. There had better be a 3rd season in the works. What's good about the strike is that there aren't many pilots of new shows in the works, so the older shows have a chance of returning. That's what I hope happens. They have to keep this show around. I think it has good viewership on Friday nights and even if it doesn't, they need to consider how many people DVR it (me included....I have the entire season DVRed!).

Last night's episode had me laughing one minute and crying the next. I can't think of any other show that has had this impact on me. EVER. It really tears at my heart strings. I literally "zone out" for an hour while I'm watching it. I can't think of anything else except for what's happening. It's great.

I want to move to Dillon, Texas. I really do. Either that or Taylor Kitsch just has to come back to Austin so that I can see him again at the gym! ;)

Helicopter moms.....

A friend of mine on a message board once talked about "helicopter moms" at her child's school. I wondered myself what they were all about. She then explained that "they hover". Oh. I get it now.

There is a helicopter mom at Kyra's school. I see her all the time. I know her well. I chuckle when I see her because she's just setting herself up for heartbreak later on. Her girls will rebel. Badly.

She does EVERYTHING for them. EVERYTHING. She told me that she was upset at the fact that her 1st grader won't kiss her when she walks her to her classroom in the morning. WTF? Kyra doesn't even want me walking her to her classroom, so there's no freakin' way she'd let me kiss her or hug her.

She volunteers at the library twice a week.....on the days that her daughters' classes go to the library. I do too, but it was merely by coincidence that Kyra's class meets there on Fridays.

She eats lunch with them every day. She told me that she sits in their classrooms. WTF? Let the teachers do their jobs without interruptions! Geez!

I'm actually shocked that she doesn't homeschool these girls. She always bitches and moans about the school and the way things are run around there. And to top it all off, they don't even live in our school's zone....they got a transfer!

She needs to realize that her GIRLS are going to school. Not her. You can't live vicariously through them. You can't see what they are doing 24 hours a day. You can't keep them from getting in trouble. You can't pick their friends. You have no control over what they learn at school or what they are exposed to.

Let them be kids. This is the best time of their life. They need to enjoy it!
