Thanks to Kmama at The Daily Dribbles, I get to thank all the folks that irritated me this week.  I usually don't have much that bothers me and nothing that constitutes me handing out thank you notes, but this week, it's been one thing after another! 
  • Dear Panama City Beach, FL a/k/a Redneck Riviera, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for trying your make your lovely beach a family oriented place to vacation.  I really do appreciate your efforts, really, BUT, something has got to be done about the "girl" standing out in front of a club that is located right across the street from some fairly nice condos, who is standing there with black high top Converse, black thigh socks, boy shorts that were about 3 sizes too small and whose butt is hanging out and wearing a bustier.  Luckily my sweet baby girls didn't have to see that! 
  • To MVES, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for making registration for kindergarten so easy! 
  • Dearest Sarah, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for convincing Mommy your flip flops were in the van before going daycare yesterday and having not checked BEFORE we left the house, I had to go to Walmart to buy you some tennis shoes before you could go to daycare which made me not get to work until 8:30!
  • To Sarah's teacher, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for making sure we knew about the tie die shirts today and sending home a note a MONTH AGO and putting a sign up on your classroom door when we either #1 haven't been there or #2 had to pick Sarah up in another classroom in the afternoons, I had to make ANOTHER trip to Walmart this morning to get a white shirt that I hope fits and causing me not to get to work until 8:20! 
  • THANK YOU VERY MUCH SCBofED for making school start on August 12, I want and need to be on a schedule!
Stop on my The Daily Dribbles and see what others are thankful for this week!

Sad Day for Me....

I've been so busy lately I haven't had time to blog!  I told myself I was not going to be lazy this summer with the kids not in school and not having homework, etc., despite how hot it was outside.  I hate hot weather.  It's not necessarily the heat, it's the humidity!  Ugh!!!!  We have had fun this summer, spending time with great friends, going to  the pool at the YMCA (we have a great pool) with friends.  The kids have had a blast. 
The friends we hang around are work for the same police department as Mike, we always hear the same ole stories and they are just as funny the 15th time as the 1st.  We all have the same concerns with our husband's jobs especially since one of our own police officers was killed in the line of duty back in December and left behind a wife and two babies.  Among the core group, there are 4 families and between us 4 families there are 11 kids ranging in age from 2 years old to 12 years old, only 4 of which are girls!  It gets pretty crazy sometimes.  AND we all go to church together.  We are a pretty tight group.  We have been getting with everyone once a week for potluck dinners.  It has really been fun. 
My computer crashed at work and I had to have it cleaned out so I've been a little scared to get on the internet too much.  I mean after all, I am at work, ya know? 
I am little sad today.  Maggie left this morning for her first church camp in Mississippi.  It's probably 3-4 hours away from where we live.  She just turned 9 in May.  Don't get me wrong, she has spent the night away from home lots, but never out of state.  She will be home on Thursday evening, but still, I'm sad she won't be home and I can't talk to her or anything!  I've been a mess today.  We were all crying this morning, me, Maggie and Sarah.  I know she will be fine, I'm just going to miss my baby so much!
