Glad he is being neutered in a few days, hopefully that will be before he starts a habit.

Welcome to the group Alex! We seem to have a good group here, dinosaurs and all I love your wedding photos! You look stunning!

Drafty - I'm surprised the cat isn't dead lol! If that had happened to me... oh dear the poor cat woulda got a boot up the backside. Hope today will be better for you.

Hubby tried to say "you've lost weight already"... liar! but god loves a trier eh? haha. The exercise will do me the world of good, no matter how hard I've tried I haven't managed to lose weight and this is forcing me to walk a lot more than I normally do. My only concern is making the kids walk, and especially if it rains... since this IS Ireland afterall.

Everyone is in awe of how sweet and laid back my husband is, and how he'll do what I say, but they don't realize that 90 percent of the godforsaken messes in my house are made by Mr. "Laid back", and crazy wifey cleans up 95 percent of them xD
Oh it's too true Demon. I work Thurs, Fri and Sat. HUbby is home those days. Every Sunday night he asks after is work clothes, which he has dumped on the floor on his side of the bed. Every week I refuse to wash them until they are in the utility room. Every week he has a panic because with his 4 days off work he hasn't managed to wash them himself.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

My body just don't want to work today yall!! It is snapping and popping like crazy!! What will everyone be doing today?? I have no plans but, I may run to the store and make some strawberry stuff that I make. You take cream cheese and mix in with a tub of whipped topping. Take a angel food cake crumble it. Take some strawberries and mix them with sugar and strawberry gel. Then I layer it. Its really good. I also think Ill make my tomato bacon ranch dip(YUMMO) for our crackers and just do a light supper so we can snuggle and snack this evening.

Hi Ems & Alex! Alex, every time I see your wedding pics it makes me think really hard about cutting my hair short again. I've been growing it out for quite some time and for the first time since before high school it is below my shoulder blades...so I'm a 24/7 ponytail kind of girl atm.

My plans today - I am watching my nephews, the youngest is 4 so I will be picking him up from preschool and have him all day, then will pick up his older brother (6) when I pick up my monkey from school. It's usually pretty interesting with the youngest around. He is always saying or doing something that makes me laugh a lot. DH bought a HUGE wooden box on wheels full of lincoln logs from a yard sale while he was working (he's a fiber optics guy for the cable company so he is all over the place during his work day) and it's supposed to rain most of the day so I have a feeling that K-man and I will be building a lot today.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

UGH. So looks like my nephew and I have a different kind of building project to do today. DH upgraded our pond pump for my big koi pond after the used 5,000 gallon pump quit, well it turns out that a 10,000 gph torpedo pump eats koi fish for breakfast. Thinking I'm going to weld a metal frame and cover it in a heavy but fine mesh. DD is going to be so bummed that it ate 5 of her fish. Le sigh.

I will be, as usual, working today. After work, I'm going home and sleeping. So glad I have tomorrow off, but I've got ten million things I need to do, so it won't be a day of rest.

Oh no!! Poor fishies!! Can you stack some rocks around the intake? Bummer!

Soooo I'm exhausted. Spent the weekend in Dallas/Ft. Worth with my girlfriends for a bachelorette getaway... Made it back in one piece! LOL!

Love DT Fort Worth, someone please give me an unlimited credit card. I found the most unbelievable pair of boots in an amazing boutique. Only cost $875. Psh, if only! We were all dressed cute but the shop owners followed us around like thieves, whatever. Hello, 30 something women (slightly hungover looking) aren't going to rob you blind. Give me a break!
(When I win the lottery I'm going in there with flip flops and sweats on, holding hundreds of bags and pulling a Pretty Woman!)

So I'm getting ready to deal with some drama with DH...
My fantastic BFF, cough cough, is getting married. Back before DH and I were an item I had a drop dead gorgeous boyfriend, think Brad Pitt with muscles. I went out with him one last time before DH and I got serious. BFF told a busybody and I had to fess up before it got back to him. No big deal but it was uncomfortable.
So a year later we had our baby girl... Guess what, she is blond. DH is a flaming red head and my hair is black/brunette. So blond wasn't exactly the most expected color... I got teased for years that I *might* be mistaken on the baby daddy by family and friends, whatever. Ex and I DID NOT have a physical relationship. I'm a good girl I am!!

So guess who is BFF's Fiancée's best man? The one I am going to be walking down the aisle with? Yep, you guessed it. I could kill her right now.


DAM, sorry you have a psycho cat! Nothing worse when an animal you love drives you nuts!!!! Here kitty kitty, you going in the garage, you little $&%$(%&$#(%&#$ (&*%$#(%&$!!!!!

Cosmo slept in the laundry room and was not at all pleased with it. He was being very clingy this morning, even with me (if Robert is home, I may as well not exist, as far as Cosmo is concerned...but this morning he followed me into the bathroom and lounged on the towel shelf as I was getting ready).

I know what you mean about the drama, Fly. My boyfriend for some reason felt the need last night to tell me that his mom thinks I'm using him (ummmm...what?), that she doesn't trust me, and that she wants to know what I do with my money. Made me so angry! How dare she? I pay half the bills, my board, my insurance, put gas in my car, buy most of the groceries, and buy the dog and cat food with my $500 a check. Heck, sometimes I even put gas in the boyfriend's truck (big Dodge 2500 turbo diesel). I don't usually shop (and if I do, it's clearance racks under $10 and thrift stores), I drive a POS car that she's even said she wouldn't be caught dead in, and I try to put money in savings every check. Of course, this is from a woman who owns a business that she doesn't have the first clue about running and who somehow mysteriously ends up blowing through $8,000 a month that she gets from her deceased husband's social security, the vending machine business, and works full-time making probably close to $18-20/hr.

Sorry, I'm bitching again.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Complain away, I'll listen!

Thanks guys!

Well, my name is Emily and I live in East Tennessee in the Smoky Mountains. We are actually moving to the Dallas/FW Texas area in June, woot woot! I am married and have 2 daughters, one 10 and the other 6, and we also have my niece who is 7. We have 3 German Shepherds, my oldest daughter's cat, my mini pig, a cockatiel, a pair of Pilgrim Geese, and of course our 5 horses.

I'm fun and outgoing, I enjoy cooking unique dishes, I love tattoos and have several of them, I don't like kids (other than mine of course), and love to be with my horses! My mare just foaled on the 3rd, and it has been the most incredible experience. I absolutely adore that little colt!

And right now I'm about to have hog roast because I'm going to kill my pig who keeps getting into everything!

Here are some of the crew

My blue roan colt, this was from last year when I got him and he was in his lanky stage. I will get recent pics when his coat sheds out the rest of the way. He has filled out nicely and is huge! He is a big beautiful baby.
