And good morning to all of you, too!
I'm running low on the ingenuity side this morning on blog title names so thought I would liven things up...
And most definitely check out http://www.urbandictionary.com/ I haven't had time to read it all(Yes, my name is Ness and I'm OCD and an anal retentitive control freak and had to check out the spelling of bow-chika-bow-wow and found it on Urban Dictionary so that's how we got from there to here...) but it looks like I could get a brand new education from it!
(We are WHISPERING this and knocking on wood with both hands) but I *think* Kiereney is doing better. She watched TV last night and laughed. She has the prettiest, most contagious laugh.
Michael did paperwork with the Lieutenant Colonel yesterday and was planning for recruitment sessions in the area. I told him to keep it real and honest because you never know where my friends are and if I hear any "television commercial/car salesman" pitches for the Army coming out of his mouth, he will not be able to hide and I will find him. When he went to the recruiters I followed up with a phone call and made sure what information he was given was accurate. I don't deal well with slanting the truth especially when it comes to mine/yours/the nation's kids.
Just talked to Kelli's friend Erica and they are in Philadelphia and an hour from their motel in New Jersey. They are dead on their feet but having a phenomenal time. I told them to look both ways when crossing streets, DON"T talk to strangers and a few thousand other helpful Mom hints that I could get away with because I AM THE MOM even though they're 30. Erica has made tshirts for their 15 seconds of fame outside the Today Show on Friday seeing New Kids On The Block.
Roger is so loving retirement although I think he does more now than when he worked! He has cooked and cleaned and laundried and cries for more. He has enjoyed having Kiereney here and babying her.
OK, so what is your flea secret? Don't talk to me about flea collars or that stuff you put on their neck once a month...tried both and failed miserably. We heard about a product and ordered it called(we interrupt this blog for a brain fog moment)well, it's made out of ground up shells and junk found in the soil along the ocean and it is the consistency of sifted flour. It is supposed to be the end all/be all for fleas...something earth. Anyway, so far it seems to be doing better than most products we've tried. But I know how resourceful bloggers are and how many of you have dogs, so if you're on to a phenomenal flea killer, please let me know. They got these fleas visiting their cousins while Kiereney was in the hospital. It seems like my ex has forgotten that grass needs to be cut on a regular basis and it is high at the kids' house. He also failed to lay hands on the lawn mower and heal it so Michael has nothing to cut grass with. Dad "supposedly" hired someone to do it... High grass coupled with all the rain, it's not a good combo for a flea-free environment.
It's Wednesday...do something totally wacky. Except for Hallie and John. They've done enough and John is STILL in recovery mode...those crazy kids!
Doing Hard Things - This made me happy! Sunrise from Jen and Derek's beach house, Dec. 28. Today I wanted to abdicate my role as adult. I was done. Finished. Adulting is too d...
