John Kerry and the White House...

I ABSOLUTELY AGREE that he should not apologize. When I keep turning on the news and hearing about how many soldiers were killed last night or yesterday, or even today, it pisses me off. While I know the media can be very good at slanting information, it still gets to me. I personally can not think of one thing positive I have heard of going on with our troops in Iraq. When I hear of soldiers that are younger than I am, dying over there, (yes I KNOW... it was their choice to join the services) it makes me sick. Someone just lost their baby. If it were to ever come to it when Greg is of age, and there is a draft... our new address will have Canada on the bottom of it. I can not believe we still have people over there. Are they even making a dent? Are they even able to help people that don't seem to want us there at all?

GMA did a thing yesterday on this. The only thing that school age children are able to do outside of their homes, is go to school. They can not play outside. They can at school, only because it is surrounded by gates, and armed men to protect them. How is it that what we are doing is going to benefit them? There are so many extremists over there, with god knows what going on in their pea sized brains that, how are we ever going to over take them, and why is it our business to do so? 9/11 wouldn't have ever happened if they would have caught them right here on the home front. Is the U.S. going to go after every country that has a wacko in it? How realistic is that.

Now I know that many people wouldn't have read past the first paragraph on here, and that's fine with me. I just happened to read the thing below on John Kerry (I got it off Comcast.net) and it got me fired up.

I would like you to know that I DID not vote for Bush, I can't stand the man, and if he were to come to my door, I would kick his ass off of my property. Somewhere in Texas a village is missing their idiot. I can not wait for him to get out of office. Republican or Democrat. Which ever comes next, it HAS to be better than what we have now.

And that is my .02 cents.
WASHINGTON - The White House accused Sen. John Kerry on Tuesday of troop-bashing, seizing on a comment the Democrat made to California students that those unable to navigate the country's education system "get stuck in Iraq."
"Senator Kerry not only owes an apology to those who are serving, but also to the families of those who've given their lives in this," White House press secretary Tony Snow said. "This is an absolute insult."
Kerry, a decorated Vietnam veteran and President Bush's 2004 rival, fired back.
He said he had been criticizing Bush, not the "heroes serving in Iraq," and said the president and his administration are the ones who owe U.S. troops an apology because they "misled America into war and have given us a Katrina foreign policy that has betrayed our ideals, killed and maimed our soldiers, and widened the terrorist threat instead of defeating it."
"This is the classic GOP playbook," Kerry said in a harshly worded statement. "I'm sick and tired of these despicable Republican attacks that always seem to come from those who never can be found to serve in war, but love to attack those who did. I'm not going to be lectured by a stuffed suit White House mouthpiece standing behind a podium."
One week before the midterm elections, the two parties are searching for any edge amid indications Democrats could take back the House and possibly win control of the Senate.
Snow was asked about the comment which Kerry made during a campaign rally Monday for California Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides. The White House spokesman was clearly ready, consulting his notes to read a fuller account of Kerry's statement and unleashing a sharp attack.
Separately, the White House issued President Bush's Veterans' Day proclamation praising those who have served in the armed forces _ a week and a half before the holiday.
The Massachusetts senator, who is considering another presidential run in 2008, had opened his speech at Pasadena City College with several one-liners, joking at one point that Bush had lived in Texas but now "lives in a state of denial."
Then he said: "You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."
Snow said the quote "fits a pattern" of negative remarks from Kerry about U.S. soldiers and suggested that whether Democratic candidates _ particularly those running on their military service backgrounds _ agree with their 2004 standard-bearer should be a campaign litmus test.
Unsubstantiated allegations about Kerry's Vietnam War heroism from a group called Swift Boat Veterans for Truth figured prominently in the 2004 Kerry-Bush race. Even Kerry has blamed his slow and uncertain response to the group's claims for helping doom his White House chances.
Snow said a lot of Americans have joined the military since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
"As for the notion that you can say this sort of thing about the troops and say you support them, it's interesting," the press secretary said.
A potential rival to Kerry in 2008 _ Republican Sen. John McCain _ said in a statement that Kerry "owes an apology to the many thousands of Americans serving in Iraq, who answered their country's call because they are patriots and not because of any deficiencies in their education."
Like Kerry, McCain is a decorated Vietnam veteran.
House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, also called on Kerry to apologize, labeling his comments "disrespectful and insulting to the men and women serving in our military."
Associated Press Writer Michael Blood in Los Angeles contributed to this report.

Did you know....

Ok, if you can't talk about bodily functions without getting all weirded out, then read no further...

Greg had a bit of tummy trouble this month. It started at the beginning of the month. He had diarrhea. Not wanting to be a panicky parent, I didn't haul him off to the doctor. I just chalked it up to him eating something that was unagreeable with him. Sometimes it takes more than a couple days to get it out.

So it goes into a week... we're starting to get ready for Mike & Mary Ann's wedding. He still has it. We go to Tennessee... he still has it and it's getting worse. For the first time in his potty trained life, he's had accident after accident causing us to buy new jockaroo's for the boy. We have now decided to have him seen by the doctor upon returning home.

We gave him Immodium the day of the wedding, and again the day we left. So we get home, and I'm talking to Donna (Emilys Godmother). I tell her what's up and she says, Give him Yogurt. (Here's where all my medical knowledge went out the window). It has live bacteria in it that your GI system needs. She says, give him that, if it doesn't go away, take him in to be seen.

It worked! Apparently when he first got the diarrhea, it flushed out all of the good bacteria in his little tummy, so he couldn't stop "going". Den picked up the yogurt, we gave it to him for a couple days and I am so happy to report the problem is fixed!

WAHOO Auntie Donna!!! What a great tip that was, and we didn't have to run to the doctor.

So, Donna says... whenever you are taking antibiotics, or have diarrhea for a few days, eat yogurt. It will "fix" your tummy!

I wonder if that will work on too much Halloween Candy???

Devils Night...

I recently sent out a "getting to know your friends" survey, and it asked about toilet papering. It reminded me of this night.... Devils Night.

In Milford, we lived on a quiet dirt road. We had one of the smaller pieces of property measuring a quaint 3 acres. Many of our neighbors had so much property, they divided it up when the moved. Regardless, we had about 11 houses in our entire neighborhood. It was a wonderful place to grow up.

On Devils Night, we would stake out a house where we knew the people would leave. Then as soon as they were gone, all of us kids were all over it with toilet paper. We had the best time. One very vivid memory is of us all toilet papering the Denewith's house. They had this HUGE white colonial, perched up on a hill. They had this L...o....n...g paved driveway leading up to it with trees lining it on both sides. Denewith's left and we arrived. We had that place covered. Joe Nutting impressed the hell out of me by throwing a roll of toilet paper (while holding on to the end of it) over the top of this huge ass house. His brother who was conveniently stationed on the other side, caught it, and ran it back around the house. We wrapped every single tree going down the driveway, crossing back and forth so that they would have to either drive through it or get out and remove it upon returning. It was quite impressive if I say so myself.

We waited quietly in the field across the street, and watched them come home. They drove up the driveway through all the ribbons of toilet paper. It was quite a sight to see.

Another favorite recollection is of this... all of us kids were walking up the dirt road heading in the direction of the Denewith's house (go figure). We were walking and suddenly, out from the woods comes a man with a bag over his head, a rope tied around his neck and he's weilding something like a knife over his head. It scared the shit out of all of us kids. Heather practically peed her pants. We were all bawling, and hysterical. Funny how my sister, Audrey, walks out behind the man, who just happens to be my brother. How funny. I do believe that was the very last Devils Night we celebrated.

It took me years to realize that I no longer have to turn on every outdoor light to ward off the little heathens, because it seems like no one really celebrates it any longer. I don't even know if it exists any more. I guess that's what country bumpkins come up with when they are bored. Oh we found out something too... Don't let off fireworks in your neighbors mailbox, unless you don't mind them tearing up your lawn with their car!

I am calm.... I am centered.....

First off, I would like to thank Dennis for getting me hooked on the Tigers. It has been the most stressful week for me, to the point where I couldn't even watch the games. I wanted them to win so bad, I couldn't bear to watch. I don't think I have ever been so hung up on anything like this before. I would have to think that with the Cards needing only 1 more win, they were like a freight train going into last nights game. I watched it from the bedroom while listening to Dennis drop "F" bomb after "F" bomb in the living room. He was cussing out Tiger players left and right. I was scared to go in there, lol.

Thursday night, while watching the game, one of the innings ended, and I sighed. I hadn't even realized that I was holding my breath. This kind of stress isn't good for the human body!

So while you may think I'm going to go on Tiger bashing, I actually want to say that I am so excited that they made it as far as they did. I am so happy that we went to as many games as we did, and the boys did not only their best, but their efforts really paid off. They did extremely well this year, and let me tell you... the first two years that we've had season tickets, it was almost as entertaining as watching grass grow. This year has been an unbelievable ride. I'm sure they learned a lot during this series, so let's see where they take this knowledge for next year.

They still are.... the ACLS Champions. Congratulations Tigers!

By the way... I'm voting Art Van in for Governor, lol. They have as many commercials as Dick DeVos and Aunt Jennie.

Guess What's on TV tonight!

Yep! It's the movie Emily, Greg and I have been watching since last summer!
It's the GREAT Pumpkin Charlie Brown
will be on ABC tonight at 8/7central.

We're WAY ahead of the game. I have my Christmas cards made, and have been listening to Johnny Mathis Christmas, and John Denver Christmas music for a couple weeks now, lol.
Yes, I know... they have groups and medication for people like me.

Who paid them off?

Are the Tigers trying to lose this intentionally? Greg can catch better than they did last night. I can't watch the games any more. They are making me a lunatic. I am so bent. If they lose tonight, there goes our tickets for tomorrow.

I'm trying to have good karmic thoughts, but I'm so bent about this that it's clouding me.

More Halloween Photo's

Trick or Treat!

And so it begins... we don't just have Halloween here. For our family, Halloween is almost a season by itself!

Last night we went to the nursing home were Grandma lives. We went immediately after Emily's dance class, and got there too late for trick or treating, but we still had a great time. We went to the huge dining room and had doughnuts and cider, took pictures and the kids played.

Grandma had just gotten out of the hospital and for someone who has pneumonia, she looks fantastic. Her color was great and she had her hair done too.

I couldn't help but laugh that Chase (Grim Reaper on the Left), dressed in that costume. How funny that the Grim Reaper visits the nursing home, lol. Everytime I looked at him, I was laughing, and I'm sure he now knows his Aunt Val is nuts, lol. I know at his age, he wouldn't put that together, but Dennis and I got a chuckle out of it.

Greg went as................Officer Charles (his alias from this past summer), Emily was a scientist, and Shelby a witch.

We had a great time although it was very short.

Our Condolences...

We are home from Tennessee. The Mike & Mary Ann's wedding was absolutely beautiful. It was the most beautiful day. It was warm, sunny and not a cloud in the sky. The mountains could be seen in the distance behind the chapel. It was the perfect day...

Unfortunately, a dark cloud came upon their day. During the reception, Mary Ann's Mom and Sister rushed in, spoke to her then left abruptly. Mary Ann's father had end stage emphysema, and unfortunately could not travel due to his oxygen requirements. Sometime during the wedding, he had become unconscious, and 911 was called. Unfortunately by the time the paramedics arrived, he had died. Although he was in a bad way, this was unexpected so quickly.

So for now, I just wanted to let all of you know what had happened. It was the most beautiful day, but very heart breaking to see this happen. There was nothing anyone could do for him, or for his family.

Mike and Mary Ann were supposed to stay at their cabin until Wednesday when they are to fly back to Greece, but have instead packed up everything, heading to Bristol, Tennessee for the funeral.

Our Condolences go out to Mary Ann and her wonderful family. They are such warm and friendly people, our hearts are breaking for them.

I will post more on our vacation within a few days.

Just another day...

Just another day in paradise as the title reads...

There isn't a whole lot going on at this moment. My mind has been with my friend Katrina. Her dad fell down the stairs the other day. He is around 60ish and quite young still. He just happened to miss a step and down he went. While he insisted that they not take him to the hospital that night, he ended up being critically injured, and ultimately had no choice but to be taken. He was taken to McPhearson hospital in Howell, then air lifted to U of M. He had surgery yesterday to remove a very large clot in his brain.

You can read up on all of this on her blog. As soon as she has a moment, I plan on asking her how I can add her blog to the side of my blog as a link. She leads a REAL interesting life.

Here is the link;

World Series

We are going to the World Series. I can not believe I actually got tickets. It took me about a half hour, but I scored 4 tickets for game 6. This could be the clinching game.

We are so excited, we can hardly stand it. Time to start rallying!

Detroit Tigers


The "P" word...

Ok, so I'm a little concerned about the Tigers. Although they will probably win this series, I am very nervous that they will not sweep the Athletics. It is probably my fault, lol. Yesterday, I was talking to Dennis on the phone and I told him that I felt very bad for the Athletics. Their dream was being dashed. Of course, he snapped at me, and said that it's all part of the game, and that those guys are probably looking forward to playing golf and relaxing. He said for me to stop saying what I said because it's "bad karma". OOPS...

So I'm crafting away in the craft room, and Emily comes in. We're talking about Dennis and watching the game on TV. She says, "Uh oh! I almost said the "P" word. I said, "What's the "P" word? She spells out, "P-I-S-T". She thinks Daddy is going to be that word if the Tigers don't win.

I told her that she spelled it wrong, but regardless, I couldn't stop laughing. Is it still a bad word if it's spelled wrong?

Thursday, October 12, 2006

No I'm not going to the game.

Dennis has tickets for Saturdays Game Tigers vs. Athletics. Today the standard question from all my gal pals, "Why aren't you going to the game?". I think it is so funny because of how many times I heard it today. First off, Nina (Greg's version of Nana) and Papa are on Daycation (Another Gregism) No sitter. Second, if we did get a sitter, we wouldn't be able to go down there and screw around with all the crazies. We would have to go close to game time, watch it, then return right away. Fun, but not much fun. Plus there is the weather. I like it warm. Today, it has been freezing. Not only freezing, but snowing. Yeah, let's go watch them play while the Winter Winds are blowing. I'm going to watch it from my cozy re-decorated living room, and who knows... maybe we'll put a fire in the fireplace.

Here are a couple of links I have found to be quite useful;

For your Halloween game playing enjoyment, may I suggest:
Halloween Candy Toss: http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/pac_ctnt_lnb/text/0,1783,HGTV_3937_25139,00.html

And a thing I use to make sure my kids height and weight are in check;

I love the Candy Toss one. You are the person on the roof, and you have to toss candy to the tric or treaters. Be careful not to make Mr. Pumpkin too mad, by missing kids or by dropping it on the ground.

We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Program

Sorry for the big delay! I wanted to give Christian his own spotlight for a few days on the blog.

I can't believe it is already Wednesday. Where was I? There is a lot going on lately. We are getting ready for Mike's wedding to his Sweetheart, Mary Ann. I've been combing the area trying to find ivory colored shoes for Emily to wear. So far, no such luck. I've tried all the local favorites. Friday that will be my soul mission. Shoes and some sort of hair thing for her to wear, like maybe an ivory headband.

The E & G are doing great. I help out in E's class on Mondays. I was telling her teacher how Dennis gave Emily Algebra questions the other day, and without any prior instruction, she got all 25 correct with the exception of 1. Unbelievable. Her teacher said that Emily is beyond Second Grade level as far as math and spelling are concerned. She is so amazing, that I am excited to see what her future holds. They are currently trying to find more work for her to do, or something more challenging for her. She just whips through it, and it's all correct. I told her the other day that she has the handwriting of a doctor. I wonder if there is any correlation there, lol.

Today I did something I haven't done in a long time. I went to a college and checked into their nursing program. While I do have my degree from Macomb, it isn't in anything I would be interested in doing again. I just wish that I would have had this initiative to do it back then instead of going for my Degree as a Paramedic. Regardless, I am looking at Baker College, since the courses that they require, are in relation to the degree. Not Under Water Basket Weaving 101 for your PhD. lol.

I am quite pumped and need to discuss all information I found with the head honcho. I am hoping and praying I get the green light. Everyone send good karmic thoughts out. I have decided that I would like to do this, because right now, most of my friends that are also "Stay at Home Mom's" are starting to go back to work. I figure that with Greg at the age he is, by the time he goes to school full time, I will have all my pre-requisite's done, and will be entering the Nursing program for the 2 years. I am so excited, and ready to start this journey. Again, just have to clear it with DH.

On that note... I'm gonna run to my craft room to see what I can sell on Ebay!

Our Family Has Grown by Two Feet!

Welcome Baby!
Christian Mitchel was born to my nephew, Christopher and his wife Ashley this past Wednesday.

Can you believe all of his hair?! I don't believe I have ever seen hair on a baby like that before. What an adorable little bundle.

We are so excited for them both, and can not wait to see them later this month.

Congratulations Chris & Ashley!
He is a beautiful little boy.

Pass the paper bag please...

Can you even believe the Tigers? It's almost like they are possessed! I have a feeling that they are so - on the band wagon that they are going to just kill the Yankee's today. Den is at the game with his buddies. I can only imagine how amazing it is down there. Funny how the Michigan vs. MSU game is being completely over shadowed by the Tigers.

Bonderman pitching makes me a bit nervous. There is a strange stigma between him pitching and Dennis attending the games. The Tigers always lose with that combination. BUT we are extremely optimistic and totally pumped.

Remember that good ole block head, Charlie Brown? I am a HUGE fan of all the Peanuts movies, and now my kids are too.

For tonights FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT, may I recommend;

It's the GREAT PUMPKIN Charlie Brown!

The little people and I will be in our snugglie bugglies, sharing a bowl a popcorn and laughing at Linus shivvvvvering in the Pumpkin Patch. His teeth chatter so hard, it's a miracle he didn't break them all off! Oh and Snoopy... The FLYING ACE. I absolutely love it when Schroeder is playing the piano and Snoopy is jamming along. Then the music gets a little sad, and Snoopy just starts wailing. lol.

I tried to find a way to put Peanuts music on here, but can't figure it out for the life of me!

The Verdict is in...

No surgery for Greg! The physician looked at his little tummy. Poor Greg started to freak out. He didn't like having a stranger looking at his belly. He did ok, but I felt so bad that he was so scared. The doctor was incredibly nice and obviously well suited to be a pediatric doctor. He had a great bed side manner, and treated Greg so well. He said that the hernia (which didn't look as big today as it has in the past... like yesterday) is small enough not to worry about. We will see him again next year.


Move Over Starbucks!

Ok, this post is obviously pre-doctors appointment. Greg and I just got back from getting a haircut, and the car wash which he LOVES. Unfortunately they must have switched soaps, because normally, the soaper shoots multi-colored soap all over the car. It does look quite cool from inside the car. This time. White soap only. Bummer. Regardless the car is sparkly clean.

So yesterday while at the store, I picked up a new coffee creamer. Nestle's Coffee Mate has two new ones out. I decided to give their Coconut Creme a whirl. I was very skeptical, because honestly.. how good could it be. HOLY SMOKES! I have now finished off the entire pot of coffee, which I NEVER do. I'm a little over stimulated from my overdose, so pardon any typo's.

It was the most amazing flavor I have ever had in a cup of coffee. Instantly, I thought of Hawaii or even the Caribbean. This is WAY over the top. I think it just replaced my favorite Starbucks fall treat; Pumpkin Spice Latte. I tried to post a picture of it online, but for some reason, am having a total block. They offer the creamer in liquid (which I always use) and powder. YUMMO!

I will post again later, but this one couldn't wait, lol.

My thoughts exactly!

Of course that is a picture of Greg. He is doing what I would like to be doing right about now. This weather is killing me. It went from a very balmy 70 (I swear it was A LOT warmer than that), to a very cool, 60 today - within minutes. It is literally sucking the life out of me!! So before I go on further...

We are so proud and pleased to announce the birth of our Great Nephew, Christian Mitchel. Born to my nephew Christopher and his wife Ashley this morning, in Jacksonville, FL. Mom and baby are doing great, but probably exhausted after his 3:30 AM arrival. As soon as a photo becomes available, I will most definitely post it online. We are so excited, and will be seeing them at Mike's wedding later this month.

So, Greg is very sharp. For the longest time, I was SO worried about him. I almost thought he had turrets, because he would say the most bizarre things. He would start talking, and Momma would start sweating. This summer, he renamed himself "Officer Charles". It's better than his previous name of "Drill".

Everyday, he gets off the bus and I ask him what he did in school. I get the standard answer EVERYDAY... "I didn't go to school, I rode around on the bus all day. We went through a parking lot".

So this past weekend, while scrapbooking at Emily's school, I spent a lot of time talking to one of my favorite teachers there, Mrs. Daniels. I told her about Greg and how he won't tell me what he is doing in school. She told me what to do. She said, "Instead of asking what he did, ask him what he liked best about school, and what he didn't like. I guarantee, he will start talking".

Pay Up Mrs. Daniels! Greg came home from school today and I did as she told me. I asked him, "Greg, what was your most favorite thing you did at school today?"

His reply..............., "LEAVE!".

Yep! He is his mothers child. I think it's time to call his teacher and ask EXACTLY what are they doing from day to day?

Tip of the day... "Never get your childs hair cut by someone that barely speaks English. Especially before a wedding!" Her hair looks fine, but I was sweating... moral to the story... it doesn't always pay to use a coupon to someplace you've never been. "

No Space For Rent

My senses are getting quite sharp. Ever get that weird pit in your stomach when you just KNOW something is going to happen? Worse yet, you have a general idea as to what it is, but again, it is just a gut feeling?

Yesterday a relative decided to take her bad day out on everyone within a 10 foot radius of her. No, she didn't come out swinging, but that would have been just the same. She managed to snap the head off anything that was vertical and breathing. The ironic thing is that when I was getting ready to go to the event, I KNEW something was going to happen, and I KNEW it was going to be along those lines. This is happening to me so much lately, that it's a little bizarre.

Then again, maybe it isn't my intuition, but more of a reality since family drama is running rampant in my family, at almost every gathering. It has become one of those situations, where some people need to be put at a distance, and others brought in closer.

In YOGA, there is a saying, "Namaste". It means "The light in me, honors and reflects the light in you". I am not a judgemental person, and try to see the light in everyone. It makes my life so much more pleasant, and in turn, it gives me such a positive attitude, because of those positive thoughts and feelings. It would be so nice if people would simmer down, and just be nice. My life is crazy enough that sometimes I feel like I should be hyperventilating into a paper bag. I have no space for rent in my head for family drama. I love my family, and apparently they must feel the same way about me as we are not cutting each other to shreds.

Enjoy the video below. It is quite cool, and it made me not only smile, but I was laughing by the end.

Thanks Trina for all the blogger tips!

Pretty in Ivory!

First off a HUGE Happy Birthday to Grandma. We went to her birthday party today at the Nursing Center. Mom, you did a fabulous job putting this together. Everyone arrived on time and Grandma was obviously surprised. It was so nice to see Aunt Norma & Uncle Joe again too. What a beautiful day for a great party. Pattie's cake was absolutely out of this world too. Pass that recipe along please!

Emily started the count down for Uncle Mike & soon to be Aunt Mary Ann's wedding. We are all so excited, we an barely stand it. Emily's dress finally came in. It is pictured above. I picked up her jewlery last week as well. I had to hide the dress so that she would stop touching it! I'll have to get her a tarp to eat dinner in so that she doesn't destroy her dress. She is the only child I know that can actually get something on her back while eating. Dennis & Greg are going for tuxedo measurements this week. Lucky for me, Mike called today and was bustin Dennis's chops about it, so now I can stop nagging him on it.

We're so excited and will most definitely take a gazillion photo's. Chris & Ashley will be there with their newborn son, Christian too. We can't wait to meet her and to hold that beautiful little bundle.

Happy Sunday! Posted by Picasa
