Busy Bee's

It's been so busy lately. Just when I feel like I have a few minutes to myself, there is something else to do. You know, laundry, dishes, cooking, cleaning. I've just felt so tired lately. Hopefully that will pass soon.

I have, however, gotten started on the babygirl's fall wardrobe. Nothing better than shopping for the babygirl. The one that will be turning "2" in a matter of 4 months. Why did that just hit me like a ton of bricks?

Go Jaguars!

Needless to say, I'm very tired. I'm sick as it is and then I decided to stay up watching Monday Night Football. (And I'm babysitting today). Thankfully, its almost naptime for babygirl and the one I'm watching. So, I'm going to catch up on Y&R.

Sucks to be brother-in-law. He blew his knee out at the game last night cheering on the Jags. So he's spending his birthday in the doctor's offices today trying to determine just how bad it is.

Remembering that day...

Written by Roger J. Robicheau

We mourn their loss this day this year
Those now with God, no danger near
So many loved ones left do stand
Confronting loss throughout our land
My heart goes out to those who do
No one can fathom what they view
I firmly pray for peace of mind
Dear God please help each one to find
And to our soldiers now at war
God guide above, at sea, on shore
They are the best, I have no doubt
Our country’s pride, complete, devout
The finest force you’ll ever see
All freedom grown through liberty
One final thought comes clear to me
For what must live in infamy
Absolutely - We’ll Remember
The Eleventh - Of September

2 Thumbs Down

Had the worst experience ever with a picture place. EVER.

We went to The Picture People for the first time Monday, and probably the last. I was excited because, of course, every picture I've ever seen from there has been great. But, no not ours. HORRIBLE.

We went to get our pictures made for MIL as a gift for her birthday. Her 3 boys and their families. She's hard to buy for and when I counted back to the last professional picture they have together it was nearly 10 years ago. We wanted one of the group and then each individual family to frame up for her all nice and pretty. Had it not been for that fact, I would have walked out of there with nothing. Babygirl's shots were awful, the floor was showing in one and the other was out of focus. My 2 sister-in-law's and I were really unhappy in some way with every shot. And we weren't being picky. The photographer was horrible and most of the issues were from her rushing, not caring and not taking time to make sure our pictures were good. The manager on duty did do her best to make us happy. A discount and 2 free sheets, but it just wasn't enough. I mean we couldnt even get 5x7's of the all complete family shot because it cut hubby's head so close to the edge that when I put it in a frame it cut half his face off. And yes, while arguing I went and took one of their frames off the shelf, cut the picture and put it in just so they could see just how AWFUL it was.

It gets even better. When the brother-in-law's declined to taking their shoes off the PHOTOGRAPHER, who is supposed to be a professional, said this "I don't blame you my toenails look like fritos".

Are you serious?

For what its worth, MIL loved the pictures anyway. She didn't see the flaws in color or washed out faces. She just saw us.
