Christmas Part 1

I guess I haven't posted a blog since Nov. 1st. Wow! We've been super busy around here. I had my last wedding for the year in the middle of Nov. I recently finished editing the pictures for that, whew! I also am done with pictures for the year and will be enjoying Christmas vacation with my kids and husband. Kaylee is in the 4th and 5th grade choir this year which is a choir that meets after school on Tuesdays. She loves being involved and is excited to be in the middle school choir next year. She had her Christmas concert with the middle school choir last night, it was a really good. Other Kaylee news: As an early Christmas present I gave in and let her cut her waist length hair!! She had about 15 inches cut off, it is now just below her shoulders with a few layers. It looks cute even though I miss my little girl, sniff. She loves it though so I'm happy for her. Nathan had his school concert just before Thanksgiving. They like to do the regular music class concerts around that time of year due to how busy people get and how many choir/band concerts are in Dec. He isn't into singing as much as his sister but I think thats normal for a lot of boys. He is getting into reading more which I'm very happy about. The kids had a lot of fun going to get our tree this year. We went with friends and their daughter, the kids had on their santa hats, even Emily. We went the day after Thanksgiving so we've had the tree up for awhile. Emily really got into decorating, I was a little surprised. Kaylee and Nathan did a great job making the tree look pretty and helping Emily. I sent out my Christmas cards last night. They turned out really cute this year. Emily has been into Christmas, I've really been enjoying her. She sings jingle bells and frosty all the time. I had several ladies in Target comment on how cute she was singing while we were shopping. She sure isn't shy! She sat on Santa's lap and even pet his fuzzy fur on his jacket. She does seem to be more of a frosty fan, I have to play the movie every day and she gets out the big snowman stuffed animal I have and holds it's hands and dances in a circle singing the frosty song. If she's not playing with frosty then she is pretending she's a kitty. I asked her this morning if she wanted me to call her Emily or Emmy and she said to call her kitty. I spend a lot of time being a mommy kitty. She likes to rub her head against my leg and meow and crawl around on all fours. Sometimes she begs me to give her a kitty nose so I have to go get my eyeliner out of the bathroom and blacken her nose. I am so glad she has such an imagination, I love it!! Jimmy gets the next two weeks off of work! We're excited to decorate some cookies, drive around and see Christmas lights, go down town St. Joe and see all the snowman statues and of course spend Christmas with our family! If I don't post pictures to this blog I'll do so for a future Christmas blog or I have a ton on facebook.

Time for new clothes...

So days, months, years have passed since I've really done some serious clothing shopping. My biggest days shopping are usually the clearance aisle staying under $60 bucks the for the year.

My kids normally get the money for clothing and even Jodi (though is in close second) gets clothes from time to time.

This morning I had to detach a monitor so I could bring it to another building. It was nothing out of the ordinary for me, so I unhooked what I could from above the desk and then went down under the desk to grab the rest of the wires.

Then it happened...

RIP!!!!!!

That wasn't good....as I hear the noise, I look down to see a small rip inbetween my pants. I was thinking crap...at least I wasn't wearing some embarassing underwear....or no underwear at all.

So I think....I guess I'm going to buy some pants at lunch time. I grab the desk and pull myself up and hear another rip....crap....

Gently....I pulled myself up as I feel a breeze from the window between my legs. Wow, that could have been worse.

Quickly I put my coat on to cover any notice of my issue...yeah...I'll call it my issue.

Good thing my underwear match my pant color. :-)

Killer Snake

That's right...I'm a hero.

Last week I was working in the basement on Kaylee's room (yeah still working on it) and had a request from my neighbor to get a snake out of their yard.

So I think to myself...crap...I've never had to pick up a snake and perhaps I'm a bit of a chicken if I get too close. Well since the guy across the street was afraid to get it, I had to be tough and act like a stud.

Oh...our new neighbors are pretty cool. Dan, Liz and Kyla have been in the neighborhood for about 4-5 months now.

So...
Dan didn't want to get near it and asked his wife to get it. Of course she didn't want to get it, so I ended up removing the snake from the yard. We didn't kill the little snake...We just tossed him down the ravine.

Here is a video of me looking like an idiot jumping back from the snake. Video compliments of Jodi which I'm sure giggles every time she watches it. I think she was hoping for a cobra snake and me screaming like a woman. The snake was actually cute, but they are still a bit creepy.

Delay on writing...

Yep, been a bit busy lately. Jodi seems to keep everyone up to date on family stuff, but I really need to start working on some blogging fun. Nothing much to tell folks. I have been working on Kaylee's room in the basement a bit. I didn't realize how crappy i framed the walls. They are all straight and all that.....they just require a bit more cutting of drywall which means more seams and more finishing room. I guess we also never figured out what were going to finish the ceiling with. I really think we should put a real ceiling. Blah i say blah....

We have to get Jodi's indoor studio setup here in the next few days so I'll have something setup for my videos finally. Stay tuned. Sorry for the delay.

Japanese Game show comes to Obese Fat Huge USA

In Japan
So have you seen the new show hole in the wall? Well well, you are in for a treat. I watched the last half hour of this show and it was pretty funny.
The original show from what I remember comes from a Japan game show. Similar to human tetris.


USA Version
So why would anyone think that we could actually do the same thing in USA (United States). This is just insane. The first girl I saw was about 300 lbs or more. She is suppose to fit through a little hole without falling in water or breaking it. HA.


So this can probably get a few laughs before the show gets old. I thought it was pretty funny though. Doubt Americans will ever have much success with this game. It's like pushing an elephant through a mouse hole.

Sick sucks...say that three times fast.

I'm sick. Was going to work on some video Thursday evening.

Now that I thought of this video thing, my mind will probably go blank.

Until Video Thursday, I'll see ya.

Fat or Muscle

So this week shouldn't be as insane as last week at work, so so so...

I thought I'm going to start the fun video blogging this week. Give me a couple days to think of something. Maybe I'll show off how manly I look each week as I work out or ....umm...not work out.

So not sure if I really lost weight. Was doing good eating and still not eating a ton of stuff. I'm still sitting at around 185 on my scale. The doctor's scale said 191 with my clothes / shoes on. That is always depressing!

So stay tuned to seeing me all hot in my shorts...I mean looking fat and not in shape and see how I transform or get even fatter.

Oh yeah...I'm going to promise 2 video blogs per week. One of me either stepping over the line or thinking of something sarcastic to talk about and one of me on my updates on my weight / exercise stuff.
