Gee, where have you been?
Might be something someone might ask were they the type to read my blog. Since I don't know of anyone like that, then I'm sure that question has not crossed anyone's mind lately.

Ha ha! No, no, no...I know there are still a few of you out there, and I more than appreciate your reading and seeing what's going on in my life!

So anyway, this has been a BUSY past couple of weeks! The kids came back from Nana's last Wednesday, and it took about three or four days to get them back in the swing of things. TJ seemed to think that telling me "No," whenever I told him to do something was okay. I had to readjust his way of thinking. Taryn threw some fits for no reason as well (ie-she wanted her headphones, and I was going to the bathroom...she cried herself to sleep freaking out that I wouldn't get off of the toilet to get them!) They are for the most part back to themselves now.

I bought Trey a motorcycle. Yep, yep. We've wanted motorcycles for a while, and my goal is to have this one once we can afford a new one for him one day. However, as much as I'd like to say this was just for fun riding, it's not. The gas is so high now that I got it for him to drive back and forth to work, and I'm now driving his car to do my paper route. It's not fun driving a stick shift to throw papers, but the Honda gets almost triple the mileage that my van does, so I'm just sucking it up. Trey hasn't started actually riding it to work yet, b/c he doesn't feel totally confident riding it in traffic and on the interstate. Of course, he's on a search for the perfect helmet now, and we're in a disagreement about it. I told him that under no circumstances would I agree to anything but a full helmet, but he wants a skull cap so he can look cool. Who knows, the motorcycle may become mine after all!

We have spent TONS of time outside, playing in the pool and the sprinkler, and going on field trips with the moms group I recently joined. I really enjoy doing stuff with them! They are all so nice, and the kids love their kids. Yesterday they learned about the moon, and today they learned about local marsh and sea creatures. Very, very cool.

Oh, and did I mention that DAVID COOK WON AMERICAN IDOL!!!!!!!!! I'm so happy! I had to DVR it, and I didn't get to watch it until late Wed. night. Needless to say, I'm sorry to my family for screaming out at the top of my lungs at midnight, while they tried to sleep!

I'm sure there's more, but really, do you have the time for all that? I'll try to get on soon and maybe I'll have something of interest on here. Here, let me take you out with some pics of my gorgeous babies, b/c that's what I certainly love to see!

    I will admit that those kids are pretty cute.

    I liked Brook. I lost interest in AI when she got voted off.

    all that last picture needs is a cat duct-taped to a wall or something crazy in the background. hee hee hee

    what kind of bike did you get? troy has both kinds of helmets; might I suggest the full helmet, especially for interstate travel. ESPECIALLY after some of the bozos I saw driving on the interstate on my way up to jersey.

    the skull caps are fine for local in-town driving.. but seriously.. get the real helmet!!
