Y'all may remember George, my beloved coffee pot. Well George may be getting the boot!!! For the past two mornings George has somehow folded up the filter when the coffee is brewing which means the grounds get all over in the coffee. Extremely frustrating!!! I've wasted two perfectly good pots of coffee! Not the thing I want to wake up to in the morning when I desperately need some coffee. Sigh.....I'm off to get another filter so I can at least strain one cup of coffee. In hindsight, perhaps George is finally starting to protest to the two pots a day that we brewed when mom was here. Hmmmmm....

Happy Birthday Daddy!!!!

What a busy day we've had today! First off, it's daddy's birthday!!!!! Happy Birthday Daddy. Last year you basked in the sun in sunny California for your birthday...... this get glasses. :D Yes, yes, they're just reading glasses but glasses nonetheless. I'm scared to see what next year brings. LOL All joking aside, I hope you have a wonderful day honey!!!!

So we all went to the eye dr today. All 5 of us! The dr looked at everyone but Phoenix. She was too busy exploring the floor and the hallway anyway. :) I got a new prescription for glasses and some trial contacts that you don't have to take out for an entire month!!! That will be nice. We'll see how they turn out. Daddy got reading glasses that he only really has to use when he's doing all the reading in front of the computer that he's having to do for school. He got some neat Harley Davidson glasses. Unfortunately I've passed along my bad eyes to the girls as well. :( Jazmin has had some problems reading the board at school. She has an astigmatism in one eye and is farsighted in the other eye. ( I think that' right, I always get nearsighted and farsighted mixed up! She can't see far away) So she picked out a pair of cool looking purple glasses. We let her pick out whatever she wanted. I think she's going to like them! Jacey....for the time being is ok. Her vision is going to go down the same road though the dr said. It's basically just a matter of time. She's got an astigmatism and is farsighted as well....just not as bad as Jazmin right now. I'd say give her 2-3 more years and we'll see glasses on her too. So all in all a pretty exciting trip for us. I just have to say.....thank goodness for insurance!!! Everyones glasses should be here in the next 7-10 days. I'll make sure to post pics for everyone. :)

Happy Easter

Happy Easter Everyone!!! I hope you all have a fun filled day with family and friends. We did our easter egg hunt early this morning. The girls got spoiled like usual. We had to do it inside since it's wet and dreary outside. I have to go into work here in just a little bit. According to the newspaper the entire mall is closed. Apparently the entire mall EXCEPT my store. GRRRR!!! And I have to work from open to close. Come on!!! It's easter for petes sake!!!! Everything else is closed. Circuit City, Joanns, United.....sigh.....oh well, I guess I'll suck it up and go get dressed and prepare for a very slow day at work. Alright....enough complaining......Happy Easter Everyone.

We went to the local greenhouse the other day. Daddy took these photos. Aren't they just beautiful???? I see alot more trips to the greenhouse in our future. :) (I left these at full size when I uploaded them so be sure to click on the pics for the full effect)

My 14 ft playpen

The girls went to a birthday party of a friends last week. They got a new trampoline too. Phoenix thinks it's pretty cool. I just think it might work as a new playpen!!! LOL

Another one bites the dust

I've introduced Mom to the wonders of Ebay......need I say any more???????

Quite the adventure

It has been quite the adventure since mom has been here. Lets see....She got to Houston and her plane was delayed. :( Only by a half hour or so but it was still a let down since her previous flights had all been ahead. The girls met her at the airport with a lovely know, in case grandma forgot where she was going. :) We got home and we've been sewing ever since. We've made Jazmin a shirred dress, Jacey a shirred dress, an ariel peasant top, a stripwork ariel skirt, a green stripwork skirt, a green peasant top, a pettiskirt that I want to throw through a window, and later today we will be starting on a recon of a button up mens shirt into a cute sundress. I'll be sure to post pics of our creations later on. We've gone garage and estate saleing. $20 will buy you a new can opener, oxyclean, endless amounts of tupperware bowls, three pairs of jeans, a shirt, 4 coloring books, a muffin tin, disney movies, a RUFFLER FOOT!!!, a hard top carrier for the top of the van, and a new clip on light for my serger. :) Did I mention that was all for $20??? Gotta love it when you find someone who will haggle on their prices. :D And to top everything off, ...... I've been sick. :( A lovely headcold that makes it terribly hard to breathe. Lets not talk about trying to eat. Have you ever tried to eat and breathe out of your mouth at the same time. ?Not real easy!!!! So that has slowed me down a bit. But I'm starting to feel better. We've still got 2 whole days left of gran being here. Who knows what kind of adventures we'll be on. We'll keep you posted!!

Leavin on a Jet Plane

Gran is on her way here. (I need a happy dance smilie) She left well before we were even awake. Her plane left early and this is the result I found when I checked her flight into Minneapolis.
Status: Arrived Gate Early
A whole 20 minutes early!!! That little ol plane must have had a serious tail wind. :) Lets just hope the rest of her flights are on time or early today. I feel like a kid in a candy store.....I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T WAIT, I CAN'T WAIT!!! :) :) :) :) :) Only two more flights to go.

ps. Minneapolis flight left early too....woohoo!!! Lets hope it gets to Houston early. :)

Daylight savings time

BLEH!! I hate losing an hour of sleep. I really, really do. I don't think Phoenix likes it either cuz she got up at 2 am...yup, 2 am , she cried and cried, and didn't want to go back to sleep. She was up for almost an hour!! So needless to say getting up this morning was pretty hard. I think everyone of us looked like zombies. Even my coffee didn't help. :( I've got all my shades open (which if you really know me is a rarity since I don't like people peeping in my house!) to try to get as much light in here as possible to help wake me up. We'll see if it works....... ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The birthday month

March is such a busy month for us. We call it the birthday month. Lets see, there is Jazmin, Devin, Christian, (those two are on the same day!) Laurie, Daddy, and Grandpa Verney (hope I haven't forget anyone!) all celebrating a birthday this month. Lets throw in St. Pattys day, easter and spring break and you've got an even crazier month!!! So to all of you birthday peeps,(lol, pun intended.....easter peeps....marshmellows....ok, I lack sleep ) I want to give a shout out and say Happy Birthday!!!!!! Hope you all have a great day. :) There, now everyone is covered. :D

For the love of snow

The majority of my girls may have been born in Texas but they're all northerners at heart! Jacey woke up this morning as I was taking the dogs outside to go potty. She saw that it was snowing. She says Hurray, Hurray, Hurray!!!! I just love snow! I started to laugh. She's a northerner through and through. :) Jazmin was outside catching snowflakes on her tongue. :)

As promised......

She's on a tinkerbell kick right now. :) So I made her a tinkerbell peasant top and some decoupage jeans. She loves it!!! (Please don't mind the flooring behind her. We still need to finish that up!)

Happy Birthday JAZ!!!!

Happy Birthday Ms. Jazmin. How did you get to be so big??? It's hard to believe that you're already 9 years old!!! I hope you have a great day today. I've got pics to post.....just as soon as I can find the cable to the camera. :)

Hard drive woes

Went to boot up the laptop last was on the blue screen of death.......rebooted.....2 beeps......reboot again......2 more beeps.......can't locate hard disk........ARGH!!! Put in another hard drive, boots right up. Put the old one back in.....NADDA! So I've lost everything on that drive. Pics, patterns, embroidery designs, bookmarks....everything! The worst part is that I can't remember everything that was on there. :( So today will be spent trying to recreate it and reinstall stuff. Lots of fun I tell ya, lots of fun!

Jacey Funny

As I was getting coffee ready this morning I asked Rob if he'd like some coffee. Jacey pipes up and says "Not me! Mom, I'm just a kid!" I started laughing like crazy. That Jacey sure comes up with some funnies from time to time. :)

mall going down the tubes

I wonder what the future holds for our mall. I walked around yesterday during my lunch break and it's just crazy the number of stores that are closing or have closed and moved out. We used to have a really great store that sold crosses and signs.....Closed. Camera store.....Closed. Glamour Shots.....Closed. Wilsons Leather......Closing. The Disney Store.....Closing! (This one makes me very sad) Kirklands.....Closed and moved. Lane Bryant......Closed and moved. I'm sure there are more, I just can't remember them right now. The number of closed spaces at the mall was crazy. I wonder what they're going to do to drum up business and get the closed spaces open again. I wonder if all the little strip malls are hurting the malls business?

I've forgotten

what it's like to work retail on a Saturday. (insert pulling out hair smilie here!) I haven't worked retail in close to 4 years. It's horrible. The customers are so incredibly rude and expect you to have an answer to anything and everything. And look out if someone puts something on the wrong rack. You'll have to pay with your first born! I just don't understand people and their actions sometimes. I wonder if they're always that mean and rude or if it's only when they're shopping. It's like they get a high off of belittling and degrading others. I wonder if they treat their family and friends the same way. To be a mouse in the corner and follow them around would be fun. :)
