Casey's Prom Pics





Here's the Mini Dddiva on prom night. It takes a certain level of awesome to pull off a pinstriped fedorah and feather boa, don't you think? She went with her friend Maggie, the other girl in the last pic, and a few other friends.

So, my mommy is not going to be happy with me

I -promised- to upload all of Casey's prom pics and video today... but then last night things started going wrong and life pretty much said "Haha, you lose". First, Aarons dad is sick so Aaron needs the car today, not a big deal just can't go see my sissys as planned. Then the washer and dryer break. Both of them. While I'm washing Aaron's work clothes. Just so you know, Aaron just had surgery for cleft lip/palate and had some hip bone put in his mouth, so he needs to wear sweats. He owns two pairs of sweats. I had to stay up until 3 making sure he had -something- to wear. I finally go lay down, rather sore because when I stress I get muscle inflammation, on top of -something- being wrong with my tubes or something causing me pain that the doctor is trying to figure out. I start to drift off.. and Ian wakes up. I settle him back down, lay down, alarm goes off for Aaron to go to work. Okay, fine. I finally get some sleep, wake up more sore, no car, needing parts to -hopefully- fix the dryer and still scared to look in the washer (I'm becoming handy! Ahh!) and Ian is sick. I think its just bad sinuses or a cold, but he doesn't feel good. And he wants cranberry juice, but all we have is grape.

So, yeah, no pictures today since the cord is at moms house. Instead I'm sitting on the couch with my boy, I've applied for jobs, checked my email, and now for one of my favorite escapisms ever... mentally planning my vacation. I'm hoping to win/save a trip to one of the Beaches resorts or a Disney cruise, something fun for everyone, where I can have fun OR relax. Ahh, that sounds fun. 

Pics of Casey to come, love you mommy lady!

Update with a lame title --insert something witty here--

You would think, with five of us blogging here, that we'd get in at least a post a week. Sheesh. Mom's been out of the hospital--all stocked up on blood--for over a week now and nobody even blogged about it yet. LAZY is our collective middle name.
Firstly--my mommy's leaving me tomorrow. Grandma won a trip to Universal Studios in Orlando, and she invited mommy, so she's taking a few weeks in New Hampshire with Grandma too. She'll be gone for FOUR WEEKS! Most people my age would rejoice at this, but I happen to love my mommy. *whines* I wanna go too!
Dodie's (gamergirlie's) boyfriend Dan is coming from Austria on June 2nd, staying for three weeks. Squee! Ian has been saying "Unca Dan here?" every time a dog barks or we go near the door. Maybe we shouldn't have told him he was coming till a little later.
Speaking of Ian. The other night, KiKi was in the bathroom giving him a bath and she called me in, asked me for a new shirt and told me this story:
She and Ian were splashing each other (because what else are bubble baths for?) and he raised his left hand and said, "Splash with this one!" and splashed her.
Then he lifted his right hand. "Splash with this one!" and splashed her.
Then he stood up... "Splash with this one!" He giggled and proceeded to pee on her shirt.
When I heard the story I told Ian sternly that we don't pee on people because it's gross. He just laughed and said, "Peed on Mommy!" -_- That kid.
More importantly... I have the BEST sweet 16 ever planned! Y'know how I won that trip to LegoLand in San Diego this summer? Well, even though it's so close to the 4th of July (as in, my birthday's on the 3rd of July, a much more important date imo) we were able to get stuff booked around then. We'll take a plane to Cali on the 2nd. We're staying in a 5-star hotel (Loews, I believe) right across the street from the beach! Right on the bay- in a room with a bay view! We'll stay for 4 nights, even though we thought we only had 2. One of the days we'll hit LegoLand, and we might be able to hit the San Diego Zoo. We're content to be beach bums the rest of the time, soaking up sun and maybe even getting tans. Okay... so I haven't actually been anything beyond ghost-pale in who knows how long. But a girl can dream.
So basically I get to spend my sweet sixteen in a 5-star hotel on the beach and in places I've always wanted to go, with my family, who also happen to be my best friends. The trip's only for 4, and since KiKi has Ian and doesn't live with us she was voted off the island :(. I feel sorry for her, but I'm UBEREXCITED!

My Mommy is a vampire

So, mommy is in the hospital. Don't worry, she's fine... she just needs more blood. Again. I'm pretty sure she's a vampire. What happens is her body just sometimes doesn't make its own blood, so she gets tired and sluggish, then they give her more blood (4 bags this time thusfar) and she's back to her wonderful self! Really, what does that sound like BESIDES vampire to you?! Also, she's not a huge fan of garlic. Likes a little, but not much really. 

Anyways, thats all for now, but I will have a post soon about Ian's AWESOME new toy!

P.S. Leave my mommy love while she's gone, she loves knowing people read this!

Apology and catching up - No energy lately.

Sorry I've been ignoring everyone and my blog lately. I just have no oomph at all lately, it seems. I will answer and get to y'alls blogs eventually. Hopefully.

I am hoping it is a simple fix and won't need another transfusion but I guess I'll find that out tomorrow since I have an appointment. I will have energy one way or another when I'm at mom's and Universal to do all the fun things, especially play with my nieces. If that means fresh blood so be it.

We had a nice but quiet spring break, the little diva's sure didn't want to go back to school, Monday was really rough. Casey has a severe case of senior-itis.

Ian is so freaking cute lately. Last night Dev was in my room talking to me when he was over- I was in bed reading- and she (graceful is NOT her middle name) fell off the bed then sort of caught herself spinning her arms and landing on her feet in a crouch.
The E-man thought it was the funniest thing ever and now he thinks it is great fun to play Ian fall off Gigi's bed. It even out-funs playing roll-over with his aunties.

Dan has his tickets and will come June 8th- we're really excited about that. He's also sent a resume to a gaming company in Cali, so keep your fingers crossed. No he hasn't decided not to do his service in Austria to keep his dual citizenship, but if he can get a job in his field he'll take it in today's market. (Yes, it is adorable that gamer girlie's bf is an uber gamer himself and went to school for it, and the cutest thing is that they don't get all ...... you know how some people freak if they don't hear from their significant other in a couple of days ... well none of that here, they assume the other found a great new game and got hooked and is spending their computer time that way.)

Dev is plugging through school getting more accolades but living for vacation. Yeah, surprises me too how much the uber-geekazoid does not like school any more.

Casey has been working on another movie, but it was a group effort and she was not in charge and let me tell you *oh the horrors* nothing went right with the darn thing including the leader fibbing about what was done. Bah. Hopefully she won't get marked off for his irresponsibility. Her teacher does know, though, how upset she is and how she offered to do it all herself again. Seems every couple of days she was going off on him in class again when she found out what was due wasn't done. That's my diva- good for her not putting up with the crap and making sure everyone knew- that was literally the only way she could get him to meet up and work on it.

Kyra is trying to figure out the whole work/school/service thing and unfortunately her husband doesn't like anything she suggests and won't help out with Ian. All he says is he wants her to work and make at least xxx money but he's not willing to do anything so she can. But we're not going there we just get annoyed and get bad jujuvibes.

Ken's hours got cut from a LOT of OT to none and to make it worse only 32 regular a week. I guess they all did at his plant so nobody got laid off. It's one of those yeah good nobody loses a job but 95% of them are living paycheck to paycheck so now nobody can make it. His OT was more than half of his income lately. Luckily the ex is good about paying so we're fine.

I am so ready for vacation- two more weeks and I am at the beach! Yay, me. Trust me when I tell you even the girls are glad I am going... I've been a tad (yeah, right) testy lately. They tease and say you are coming back aren't you mommy? But if I get any meaner they will say keep your ass away from us. Sheesh. I try not to, but I can get nasty, especially when I feel weak and overwhelmed by everything. Seems like every little thing bothers me then.

Ah well, hope everyone is doing well, once I have some energy I'll be by to visit.
