just my list...

things that suck...
  • the air conditioning in my house not working
  • forgetting to take the second garbage can to the street for the third straight week
  • checking the 'remember me' box on websites, and it not happening
  • bea arthur is still dead
  • people who drive on 27 south from new circle road to 152 in lancaster between 3:30 and 4:30
  • maddie doing this right before she knocks me down to attack me with kisses



things that don't suck...

  • having air conditioning at work
  • amy taking out the first garbage can this morning, so we at least have one empty one
  • cold miller lite in the fridge when i get home
  • the hopes of a 'golden girls' marathon on lifetime in honor of bea arthur
  • not having swine flu
  • the babies when i get home


so after careful consideration - my day didn't suck...i mean look at those faces...

just family fun day...

usually family fun day includes myself, ames and my brother johnny and some sort of marathon shopping day...well yesterday was a little different...ames had to work so my dad stepped into her place...and there was no shopping...we went to the uk singletary center for the arts museum for the 'excavating egypt' display...my brother really gets into this stuff and i couldn't tell you the last time i went to a museum on purpose, so why not...normally any time my brother and i get together and go out into public, we try to get into some sort of trouble...and with my dad with us, it was like we were kids again...ahh the look that says 'i'm gonna kick your ass when we get out to the parking lot'...i know it so well...

started out with a kick ass breakfast at bill's diner...

my brother's truck has an i-pod adapter so we went from madonna (of course) to the smith's to the wonder woman theme song...when wonder woman came on i'm sure dad was re-thinking his decision to go out into public with his children...we made fun of the cash for gold commercials and wondered where hookers go to die since the 'princess motel' hasn't been around for a while...

once at the museum, johnny and i immediately made a new friend...

i thought my dad was old, but this guy is 5,000 years old...




this is a jackal statue removed from a tomb...


this is my brother's dog alex...

don't know what it says but it's the first time i had ever seen hieroglyphics in real life so i figured it was picture worthy...

after looking long and hard johnny finally found it...


amy's prom dress...

just alot of stuff...

forgive me father for i have sinned...it has been, well let's see...(31-24+18/pi)+...how about we go with a long time since i last blogged...alot has been going on around here...we painted the bathroom and changed out alot of things...including my first adventure with electricity...i'm happy to report that i changed out light fixtures and didn't fry myself once...



this is what our walls looked like before...

that white box on the wall is an access panel where amy broke through the wall to fix the plumbing in the shower...572 degree water no longer runs out of the faucet onto our feet...plus we save about $6 a month on our water bill...doesn't seem like alot but when you add it up...cha-ching...

amy's sink...

my sink...

that's my tub baby...

and yes, that's a tv in the bathroom...

did you happen to notice the pictures on the wall...those are from outside of our very own house...we didn't plant them, but they grew on their own...but hey, we didn't kill them either...





other random things...

maddie has been watching too much hogan's heroes and has decided to tunnel her way out...


peter is gay...every morning when i brush my hair he goes crazy for me to brush his...

he absolutely loves it...

maddie does not...

i painted a little chalkboard on one of the walls in the spare room...turned my back for five minutes and look what happened...also a testament to peter's sexual preferences...

okay that's enough...went to the museum today with johnny and pops...i'll post the pictures i was able to take before i got busted tomorrow...and start with the bedroom renovations...
