Ha! I'm not the only one!

I had a moment this morning, where I smiled to myself and felt very satisfied with the world in general. I take my 2 boys to the bus stop every morning, and I usually chat with my neighbors when I see them. Today one of neighbors was complaining that two of her girls had a fist fight on the bus home yesterday, and that they were openly disobedient towards her. She said they were grounded for a week and that she was shocked at their behavior.
As she told me all this, I was wheeling my 2-year-old home and he was kicking and screaming about the duckies not being in the creek where they should be.
And I couldn't help smiling to myself and thinking about all the bad things my boys have done lately! It's so wonderful to know that my kids are not the only bad ones that are grounded! In my opinion, my kids don't seem awfull now that I know other people are having the same problems! They are normal! HA!

highlights from the sausage fest.

On saturday, we ventured into the unknown and visited the local sausage festival with our neighbors! We found out it was actually a catholic school fundraiser carnival, and they only had one kind of sausage! Pat said it was tasty, but I'm still dissapointed that the so-called "sausage fest" only had one variety! But Ian and Nevaeh got to go on a few rides, and play a couple carnival games. They each got a couple of prizes and got to eat an elephant ear, so it was worth it. And I got to take this funny picture of Pat, Ian,and Nevaeh!

my ginormous flowers

Okay, if you look at the other pix of my flowers, you can see how huge they are now! The sweet peas(purple flowered vine) and forget-me-nots(little blue flowers mixed in with the sweet peas) are even bigger than they were when I took this picture 2 weeks ago. The sweet peas are almost 5 feet tall. My neighbors sweet peas aren't nearly as big as mine, and she's convinced that I'm giving them some kind of growth hormones in the dead of night!
All of my flowers are way huge! I hope they get this big next year too!

To blog is divine....

There are 19 days until I start my G.E.D classes four nights a week! I'm very excited to finally be doing this, it was allot easier than I thought it would be!
But my new schedule will suck! I'm not looking forward to the craziness of full time mom/part-time student.
So, for now, I'm taking some time for myself. I'm not going to think about school until it's time to go! I'm going to blog, and update my myspace, and send e-mails, and skype, and play my Wii, and play in my garden, and whatever else suits my fancy nancy!
