Monday Madness

1. Do you ever use all caps when typing online messages?
Only when i am mad..:)

2. Does it bother you when other people use all caps in their messages?
not really unless they do it constantly.

3. Do you use abbreviations (i.e. lol, brb, etc.) when typing email messages or text messages?
Yes i do. It is much easier than spelling out the whole word.

4. Do you ever receive faxes or other correspondence from a professional office that are typed in all caps? If so, what do you think of that?
Don't have a fax machine and don't receive anything from any professional office.

5. Do you rely on the computer program to catch your typing errors, or do you proofread your material before sending it out?
I do love spell check but i also proofread everything i type before sending it out.

TWIRP Dance 2007

Last night was suppose to be the kids' twirp dance-which means the woman is responsible to pay. Anyway, we were getting everyone ready for the dance and meanwhile we are under a severe blizzard/ice storm warning. Does anyone think of cancelling the dance??? Nope. We even called the superintendent of the schools and he said they don't plan on cancelling. How STUPID!!!!! One of our daughters went b/c she was determined to go.(Once she gets an idea in her head she DOESN'T like to change) but our other daughter stayed home with her date and we watched movies and had pizza. We did get pictures of the couples before the dance. They all looked very nice but were making me freeze:)
**UPDATE*** They closed the dance after they had been there for 2 hours and everyone made it home fine.

Wordless Wednesday

This picture was taken by our youngest daughter while they were on the waverunner. I thought she did a pretty good job considering the water was very choppy that day. We had a GREAT time on the waverunner and we also got to see dolphins!!!

Happy Happy Birthday

Happy birthday Mom Hope you have a wonderful birthday!!!! Love you !!!!

We went to a Valentine's Banquet on Saturday with our new church. It was at the Elderberry Tea House. Very nice place. We had the whole resteraunt to ourselves. They served lasagna, salad, texas toast and dessert. Then we had a few skits, some solos and a short message. We had a great time.
Yesterday was church of course, and then the girls wanted to go to the mall. Our youngest wanted to buy her boyfriend a gift for his birthday. We found out yesterday that he is going to be visiting in a few weeks. He doesn't live near us. Ought to be interesting while he is here:).
Today my hubby left for Atlanta Georgia (work related) not for fun. If it was for leisure i would've been going with him!!! They send him to this fancy hotel for a couple of days and he gives a presentation and the rest of the time is his for whatever he wants to do. One of these days i am going to go with him. It has a winery right there by the hotel and his room has a spa in it. I will trade him jobs any day. Ha ha.

What sound, other than the normal ringing, would you like your telephone to make?
Probably a motown song like Resue Me or Son of a Preacher Man.

Describe your usual disposition in meteorological terms (partly cloudy, sunny, stormy, etc.).
Mostly sunny with a few clouds.

What specific subject do you feel you know better than any other subjects?
With four kids in the house I'd say it would have to be English. Math is not my favorite subject and never will be.

I would love to remember everything i read in the Bible.

If a popular candy maker contacted you to create their next confection, what would it be like and what would you name it?
My favorite would be Chocolate Strawberry Delight.

Mrs. Goodnest

My Valentinr - julesf88
Get your own valentinr

I have seen this on many of the blogs and thought it would be a fun idea for Valentines.

Friday Feast # 130

Appetizer - Have you been sick yet this winter? If so, what did you come down with?
Yes, I have!!Started out with a cold and since Dayquill has taken out the main ingredient to help you get better...I got Bronchitis. Am feeling much better now.

Soup - What colors dominate your closet?
Lots of blues and greens

Salad - How would you describe your personal "comfort zone"?
I don't like people to get "in my face" when they talk to me. Especially if i don't know them very well.

Main Course - On which reality show would you really like to be a contestant?
I don't think i would like to be on any of the reality shows. I have watched a few of them and I like to keep my personal life private, not out there so everyone in the world can see me.

- Which holiday would you consider to be your favorite?
That one is hard. I like them all. Christmas is fun because I get to buy things for the people i love and watch them open gifts. Valentine's is right around the corner and that is fun b/c my hubby takes our girls out for lunch for the traditional "daddy daughter dates" and they get a chocolate rose from him-they just love that. Of course we go out later that night. Lots of fun.

Back to normal....

Well, the kids went back to school today and i went back to work. Now my hubby has got what i have had so guess more antibiotics. Just wish we could get through the winter and get spring here as fast as possible. Have a full house of kids today and most of them are getting cabin fever. We need a warm day to go outside:) or at least a gym of some sort where i can take these boys out to get rid of some of their energy:)
Today is a warm 0 degrees. It is suppose to snow and has already started. We are to get 2-3 inches by tonight. I love to watch the snow fall but do not like driving in it. Just hope it is not getting slick out there.
Hope you all are staying warm.Have a great Tuesday.

No School Today

Woke up this morning to check out the news and I was shocked to see that the kids have no school today due to the freezing temperatures. It is -13 degrees right now and not suppose to get much warmer. I was so shocked that the kids were not going b/c their school district does not close unless it is really bad outside. If their principal can get out of his driveway they have school.
I took today off from work b/c of being on cough medicine with codeine. I didn't want to watch kids and fall asleep half way through the day. That would not be good. Now that I have my kids home all day with me it is turning out to be a better day after all. Now i don't have to worry about them being out in the cold and don't have to worry who is going to pick them up since i was sick.

Not feeling well Part 2

Am still fighting off that bad cold which has now turned into bronchitis. This weekend has been nothing but relaxing on the bed and letting everyone else clean up the house and make dinner.
We are of course, watching the Bears play tonight and hopefully they will win. They are off to a great start.
Will get back to regular posting asap. For now i am enjoying my cough medicine:) and resting up.
