Its the weekend...

well it's saturday. I think we have a lot of preparing for this little "party" of the kids LOL

Oh well. I hve no idea what we're going to do but i guess we'll figure it out huh? They are getting older. Both of them are sliding out of country music and into this mexican latino reggaeton mix stuff (im sure i spelled it wrong) daddy Yankee and Don Omar are the new Nsync and Alan Jackson in our house LOL

Charlie and Bob are at the landfill today. They took Brittany and Megan. I sure am glad they are in that truck-- not me LOL Megan and Brittany can talk your ears of. We went to a little fall festival type thing at the school last night. It was alright. Nothing spectacular.
Well I need to go get a shower... Ill write more later.

The kids have all been sick. Blah! I have Megan home with a 101 fever today and I had to pick nathan up because he's got an upset belly. Oh did I tell yall that Charlie and I are going to see Drew Carey and his all star improv show? I can't wat. We have front row seats to it. Charlie and I crack up laughing at the Whose line is it anyway shows. Its my favorite show! LOL Tht's not until November 10th. Then--we'll be going to PA. For the stupid baby shower lol OH speaking of baby showers... Shannon and Bob are having a girl. Woooo hoooo! One more baby to spoil.. woo hoo Not too much longer :)

4 days..

So it's been 4 days with no medicine. I didn't take it Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and then today.. so I guess that's 5. I called in a refill today. If I feel like it maybe I'll go get it. I can feel myself swinging. Being moody. Not wanting to get out of this chair. Whatever. Why do I need to? My birthday is on Saturday. Who cares. lol

My brain is so fried with this whole wedding thing. I've found two places that I really like for a reception. Now.... I just need to figure out where I'm going to get the money and how many people there will actually be. We were looking to stay small. Around 40'ish counting us. But if I'm going to have to pay minimums than hell... I might as well invite more people right?

On top of this whole wedding thing we are planning our Disney trip. It's going to be us and our 5 kids and our friends and their 2 boys. My dad was going to go but backed out yesterday. Whatever, we'll figure it out.
OH yeah and I think my brother sucks too. He and his wife are having their first baby in December. I try to call him-- he either doesn't answer or is busy and NEVER calls back. If I ask about the baby he changes the subject or says.. "Even if we did have a name, we're not telling you". Now he said it sarcasticly Or so I thought until my sister told my parents that SHE knows the names they are using. Whatever. Maybe it wouldn't bug me medicated but today it does. I'm kind of tired of trying to initiate a relationship with him when he obviously doesn't care enough to reciprocate. They are having a surprise shower I guess for Stacy at the church on November 12th. I haven't even been invited. My parents called and asked if I've seen the stuff they registered for etc, Well how in the fuck would I? My dad says.. "Well it's on the invitations"... What invitations? The one I didn't get? My mom said this morning.. well Melissa-- you probably won't get one because you live in NC. Well fine. They won't get a wedding invitation from me because they live in PA... How is that logical? It's not in my opinion.
Whatever. I'm going to watch a Tim McGraw video. Why? Because I want to.

Friday the 13th

For whatever reason ... I remember today as being Friday the 13th.. Years and years ago my 2nd cousin Becky had her son Christopher on this day. WHY I remember that is beyond me. LOL He has bright red hair and now? Hell, he's probably 15? (Yes, I know it's not really Friday the 13th today)

Today Megan has her IEP. It's at 8:00 this morning and I can't wait to go. I hope the principal is back. She's been on medical leave. I can't stand this woman. She thinks she is above everyone else. She always gives me panic attacks. I'm glad Charlie is going with me.

So----- The wedding dress is purchase. The girls dresses are purchased. I've reserved a lady for hair and make up for myself and for the girls. She comes SOOO Highly recommended. I'm excited to meet up with her. We're going to do at least one, maybe two, practice runs. The latest my dress will be in is January 20th. That seems so far away. I think we're going to have the wedding at the Wagner House. ( http://historicwagnerhouse.com ) It is an old fashioned southern mansion. The lady that owns is it really nice. And man, she decorates that house beautifully! The pictures really do it no justice. I may go back this weekend to take pictures of it to show yall.

The cat goes to the vet this morning. They've actually already left to drop her off. She's going to get fixed. Wahhhh Poor baby. I'd just hate to have any kittens. This way -- the "girl" is fixed. Our other cat, Rabbit, is supposed to be fixed. When they tried to fix that stupid cat-- they said he was A) already done or B) a hermaphrodite cat with both sex parts! HE was only 5 or 6 months old when we went to have him neutered. They suspected they'd see SOME sign of a surgery scar but they didn't. This way--- we're safe! Bwahhaha...

Tomorrow is Nathan's pumpkin patch thingy with his school. Yay! I can't wait. We went last year and I got some really cute pictures. He's doing really well in school this year!

Things have been crazy

Things around here have been totally crazy lately. Something is up with Anthony. I wish I could help him but I don't even know where or how to start. He's been crying for about 2 weeks--- Over EVERYTHANG! Yesterday morning he woke us up around 6:15 and he was sobbing. It scared me to death. I thought something was wrong. He said he misses his dad. It makes me feel horrible to hear that. I want him to be happy. I love all of my kids but I hold a special spot for Anthony. He's my first. He made me a "mom". To hear him and see him crying and to be in such obviously pain and distress just broke my heart. I had him call his dad and he seemed a little better. Charlie took the day off to spend with him and they spent the entire day together. Again this morning he was crying because he said that the thought of him forgetting to take a shower makes him cry and he doesnt know why. I asked if he had gotten up late. He said no. I asked if he forgot to take a shower. He said no. He said he took one. Ok than why cry? He said it's just the thought of--- "What if" I think being smart is almost as bad as being dumb. He's a self proclaimed perfectionist and worries about everything. This just has our family in knots. I don't know what else to do. I called the school counselor and she's going to talk to him today and get back with me. I have an appointment tomorrow at 10am with the pediatrician to see what can be done or if they can refer me to someone or what.

My mom and dad come tomorrow also. I'm hoping that makes him a bit happier.

For now?

I want a snickers.

I was standing
All alone against the world outside
You were searching
For a place to hide
Lost and lonely
Now you’ve given me the will to survive
When we’re hungry...love will keep us alive

Don’t you worry
Sometimes you’ve just gotta let it ride
The world is changing
Right before your eyes
Now I’ve found you
There’s no more emptiness inside
When we’re hungry...love will keep us alive

I would die for you
Climb the highest mountain
Baby, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do

I was standing
All alone against the worlk outside
You were searching
For a place to hide
Lost and lonely
Now you’ve given me the will to survive

When we’re hungry...love will keep us alive
When we’re hungry...love will keep us alive
When we’re hungry...love will keep us alive

Sunday Sunday

So it's Sunday. Charlie's been working in the bonus room for most of the morning. We're taking a break to go bowling. The kids enjoy it and it's really dirt cheap. I SUCK at bowling. I swear I average like a 70? lol Today, perhaps, I'll use the bumpers. Hahaha

My mom and dad come on Wednesday. Yeeee haaaa. They will be so much easier to manage than my last week. Yesterday, Cecil and I had a girls day out. It was FUN! We went shopping. I'm going to list some things on eBay. We'll see how that all goes.
