Just wondering.....

WHY would a 5 year old boy ask my daughter at Wee school if she wanted to LICK TONGUES!? Just so you all know... she was grossed out by it! She wanted you (the little boy) to know if she did in fact lick tongues with you that SHE would have germs...

I have often wondered that if someone has a problem with you then why can't they be an adult and agree to talk it out? We are not in high school.. or at least I am not anyway!

Oh, and wouldn't it be so funny that if they (they being the someone that won't hardly talk to you) needed a recipe from you so they recruited someone else call you to get, and then after the fact someone told you how much THEY appreciated your recipe that SUCH AND SUCH gave them.. and when told about it you knew EXACTLY where is came from because the person that they had call you to get it never hard ever in fact calls you either! Are ya with me!?!? BTW... I'm flattered!

Do you have someone that you know that says things to you that THEY maybe think are funny, but it truly hurts your feeling or makes you mad? I DO! And I have said things back to the person, but it seems to NOT get the point across?

Have a great weekend!

Nothing is free any more...

BUT THIS! Today while out working I heard 2 different commercials offering free stuff. All you gotta do is sign up for it! Free toothpaste!

And my favorite On this one you get to pick either a 2 liter, or a 20 oz. This is my drink of choice since my Weight Watchers days!!

update on cuteness...

Santa brought Dalton some furry flip flop house shoes.. she refers to them as FLIPPERS.

Today me and little D were heading to get Avery from school and it was cold and had been raining.. she says to me... mama, if Avery does not have her jacket on then YOU need to give HER a talking to! Now if you know Dalton you know the look she was giving me with her eyes too! She is a HOOT!!!

I drove by Starbucks today....

& DID NOT not have the least little urge to pull in! In fact, Avery goes... OH NO there's Starbucks! I said... who wants to go to Starbucks!?!?!? Everyone in the car (everyone being me, Dalton, Lily Claire, Avery and Blaire .. Avery's BAB!) hollered NOOOOOooooooooo! LOL (except they/we/I did not laugh afterwards!) I sware I even heard Lily Claire holler too!

So looka here people. Say this with me slowly... ROBIN NO LIKEY COFFEE...

Now on to part 2 of the therapy session... Once again... slowly now... ROBIN NO LIKELY ESPRESSO. ESPRESSO MAKE THE HAIR STAND UP ON ROBIN'S BACK!

So, if you think I am going to go out and buy anything coffee/espresso realated then I don't know what to tell ya cause IT AIN'T HAPPENING!!!! So, if you want me to try it then you either need to either send me a Starbucks gift card in the mail, or do a drive by and leave me some frappathingys on the front porch cause I AIN'T BUYING IT WITH MY MOO-LA! Oh, and address is available upon request.

P.S. MO, did not see any of your kinfolks roaming around in McAlister's today in WM! What's up with THAT!?!?! Meet me next time in the parking lot... Oh, and you know the one I am talking about and bring your frapa-lappy drink, and I will take a swaller! But, you may want to get on the other side of the Hummer when I do.... you know.. just for safety purposes!

Outting to Starbucks

So, for those of you that know me you know that I HATE coffee. Say it slowly with me... ROBIN HATES HER SOME COFFEE! Like some of it KINDA smells good, but if I get it close to my nose I will literally gag. NO JOKING! I can't even tell you the last time that I had even tasted it. Then, my bloggy friend Lindsay just totally insists on me trying something from Starbucks... A grande skinny french vanilla latte with an extra something another... shot I think. So, we went to Monroe a few weeks back and here goes the conversation between me and Avery (the 10 1/2 year old.. and Dalton butts in there every now in then too cause she is all worried about going to build a bear)

Me while driving.. makes a sudden turn left that is not our usual route.

Avery: Mama, WHERE are we going?

Me: Oh, you just wait and see....

Dalton: I thought I was going to get to go to Build A Bear FIRST when we got to Monroe!?!?!
(*Note.. Dalton calls the MALL.. Monroe. I can not for the life of me make her understand that it is THE MALL and NOT Monroe. I guess that since we always go to the mall when in Monroe then that is just what she has stuck in her head!!!!)

Me: Dalton, we ARE in Monroe..

Dalton: No we are not. We are NOT at Monroe yet...
NO, when we GET to Monroe Avery said that I could go to Build a Bear first.

Me: Ok.. Whatever!

Avery: WHAT DOES THAT SAY? Starbucks!?!?!?! WHY are we going to STARBUCKS!?!? Mama, remember WE don't drink coffee!!!!!!!??!?!?!

Me: Pulling the ride into Starbucks...

Avery: Oh, NOOOoooo! Are WE fixing to actually DRINK COFFEE?

Dalton: I AIN'T GOING IN THERE TO DRINK COFFEE.. I'm going to build a bear!

Me: Dalton, you can't sit in the car by yourself!

Dalton: Well, I ain't drinking any coffee. I don't like it!

So, we ALL unload to go in Starbucks... Me, Avery, Dalton, and Lily Claire. Lily Claire being the build a bear. Oh, and Lily Claire is actually a dog.

We walk in..

Avery: Eyes really big while grabbing her nose... peeeyouuuuuWEEEE it stinks in here!

Me: EWW it sure does!

Dalton: Telling Lily Claire to DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING while we are in this store.. DO YOU HEAR ME!?!?! (um, wonder where she has heard that before!!!)

Me and Avery: lingering by the food section.. actually drooling on the glass if I remember correctly

Starbucks guy: May I help you?

Me: umm... my friend tells me that I just HAVE to try a grande skinny french vanilla latte with an extra shot... Oh, and you can make it NOT taste like coffee.. cause I don't like coffee! **big smile**

Starbucks guy: Well, then you DO NOT want a extra shot..

Me: Oh, I'll take the extra shot if it is that French Vanilla creamer/flavoring stuff...

Starbucks guy: Well, actually it is the ESPRESSO!

Me: WHAT? It's got espresso in it!?!? Oh, no.. I don't like espresso!

Starbucks guy: secretly thinking I am a nut case I am sure... cause he is just kinda looking at me with his head all tilted sideways like a dog when you talk to them...

Me: Well, just do whatever you gotta do it to so I DO NOT taste coffee or espresso what so EVER.. and BTW we better skip that extra shot today!

Starbucks guy: Ok, I'll fix you up!

Avery: Turning to look at me....Mama, I'm scared!

Me: Me too Avery

Starbucks guy: Here ya go mam.. try this and see what you think...

Me: I take it from him...

Avery: her eyes are HUGE at this point

Me: I take a little swaller

Avery: WELL?

Me: hum, well I guess I could drink it if I HAD too...

Avery: here.. let me try it!

Dalton: I'm NOT drinking it so don't even ask!

Avery: Takes a swig and almost pukes on the counter... and gives it back to me she says I DO NOT like that foamy stuff OR that TASTE... eww what is that nasty taste!?!?!?

Starbucks guy: that's the espresso.. so, what do you think?

Me: I have to be honest...I do not like it ( I know that Lindsay just gasped!!!)

Starbucks guy: Ok, then tell me what you DO like so I can try to make you something that you will like!

Me: hot chocolate.. with french vanilla and sugar

Starbucks guy: then I will make you one of those!

Me: after tasting the new cup that he gave me... I say that is much better!

Avery: still is not liking the foamy stuff on the top

.... we pay $3.50 something another and leave with our 2 drinks.. Avery finally gets all the foam off the top of the hot chocolate...she tells me that it is TOO STRONG tasting, so I had to explain to her that they use REAL stuff.. not Swiss Miss like we do at home!!! I tell her that I think it is too strong too... bitter really! I would rather have Swiss Miss myself with a teaspoon of sugar and a teaspoon of french vanilla creamer in it.. LOL She tells me that MY hot chocolate is MUCH better than theirs! We make it to down the road about a mile and I said... I can't take it any more.. I gotta get rid of this! She says.. ME TOO!!!! Avery says... we just ain't Starbucks girls are we mama!?!?!?

* Note to the guy at Starbucks.... Thanks for being so nice, and not talking about us until after we left.. CAUSE I AM SURE YOU DID! LOL

RIP my Razor...

Yesterday my cell started acting all crazy by turning itself off CONSTANTLY!!! Then, today it got even worse! I took it to get it fixed only to find out that it had a SHORT in it... umm humm yea right! And if I would have had insurance on it then it would have been covered... yep, heard that one before too! LOL But, there would have been a heck of a deductible too.. so, either way I was going to have to dig in my little fake Dooney & Burke purse, and cough up some monies on my trip to get my OLD PHONE FIXED. So, now I am the owner of a new phone that tells me that it is November 16, 2008, and that it is 11:14 am. Oh, and the best part is that it wont even ring right now. Oh, and what about ALLLL my ring tones you may ask!?!?!? I DON'T HAVE ANY GOOD RING TONES ANY MORE!!!! But, thank you for ASKING!!! And YES, that I am a little bitter about!!
What's up people!?!?!? YES, I am here. The crying is still going on some. I am being tough.... as hard as it is she is NOT going to work me over! I just drink me a beer and take a valumn when I first get up and that makes me handle it all a lot better.... JUST JOKING PREACHER MAN!!! Anyway, she ain't gonna work me over! Dalton cried again on Monday... then did not on Tues and Wed, but did pucker up a couple of times during the say. What's the problem you may ask!?!??! Well, she wants her sweet mama!!! (that is what she told me anyway! LOL)

Last night we had Pokeno, and Lee was working 12 hr graveyards so a the girls went to a friends house. BTW, A BIG THANKS TO Mr. John!!! Well, guess what happened... she turned the tears on BIG TIME! I took her to the bathroom (this is where the spanking happens in our house... GASP, yes, we spank IF needed... try it with your kids.. IT WORKS! lol ) But, I took her in there to tell her that in fact I was going to Pokeno... well, she informed me... in her little redneck voice... I just want to go to Pokeno with you mama... (Note to self...... Be strong Robin... she is working you!!!!) So, I told her to suck it up cause I was going to Pokeno without her! That she was staying and playing and having a good time and that is just the way it was going to be... We leave out the door... she screams her head off... we get like what maybe 6-8 streets over.. we call and she is FINE! So, what cha think? She's working me ain't she!?!?

Oh, and Kami.. as you know I had been wanting TACO SOUP.. it was yummy and the apple dumplings... WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT THAT!?!?! You know they are a pokeno fav!

And did I win at Pokeno? I got a beautiful picture frame as a door prize, got to eat some yummy grub, and had great fellowship with some lovely laides... so in my eyes... Yes, I won!

Crying... EVERYDAY!!!

Every single day this week I have left Dalton crying at Wee school. I don't know what the deal is! She LOVES it there! She gets in the car every day... and is so excited about what all they have made or about what they sang or about her getting to be the leader. If I had to guess it would be that she is so off schedule from the holidays... I did not make her go while Avery was out of school.. so she went to bed a little later and got to sleep a little later too every day. BUT not only is she crying when I leave her but she has a couple of break downs during the day too. I talked to her about it the last couple of days asking her if someone was being mean and just trying to figure out what is up!! Finally in her soft little voice she says to me... I just want YOU mama!!! I just can't take it! No, I am not pulling her out to keep her at home with me because HELLO PEOPLE.. I work!! If she does this to me during school next year I will not be able to handle it. I hate to leave her crying.. I have NEVER had to do this before with Avery and my nerves can't take it. She will be at school as long as I take her.. I will just be heart broken all day with how I know that I had to leave her.. but now her daddy is another story.. he will not leave her. So, I am going to have to work on both of them before the school year starts!

Maybe she is feeling like me.. just burnt out. I don't even want to blog any more. I mean WHY do I blog anyway? I have LOTS of hits, and a few comments but does that make it worth it? No, not really! I don't expect a million comments, but it does keep me going if I know that someone cares.

Sorry for the long write up and no pictures.. I have an appt at 9:30 and just had a few minutes to spare after I got the beds made, supper laid out and clothes in the washer!! Happy Friday!

Growing up...

Today while watching Avery it hit me.. look at her!!!! She is growing up so fast!!! So many changes this year... She is so sweet and thoughtful. They talked about bills yesterday in one of her classes... last night she brought me a little piggy bank half filled with changed and wanted me to cash it in so she could help out with our bills! I nearly fell out! I assured her that mama and daddy worked to make sure that our bills were taking care of, but that we sure appreciated her thinking of us like that! This little girl thinks of everyone else before she thinks of herself! How many 10 1/2 year olds do you know that does that!?!? If you don't know this child you are missing out...
