First, I work at a place called Fox's Pizza Den. I am the baker. I make chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies that get frosted with butter cream frosting, no bake cookies, pecan puffs, rice crispy bars, and whatever else I'm told to make. I also make the frosting. I cut the bread(frozen) into 4 inch lengths, and on another day I put it into pans with butter on it...proof it in the proof box and bake. 30 min. This bread becomes sandwiches through the magic of someone else, or garlic bread. (Ok, garlic bread doesn't make the bread into sandwiches, a person does. Just thought I would clear that up for you. The bread gets turned into garlic bread, OR sandwiches. A person does this.)

Second, I'm a bad, bad, bad, girl! I'm not- not drinking soda anymore. :)

Third, and this is just a random thing here, I started taking pre-natal vitamins-because I feel that my body is deficient in a major way- and I have lost 5 pounds! Plus I feel a lot better too. Go figure.

Fourth, I'm only taking those vitamins because I feel that they are like SUPER vitamins, not for any other reason-mom! Sorry.

Fifth, I am at the library again, and this time I'm with all 3 kids! I like the library too, Robbie. It makes me feel smart. I don't know why, just like I have the possibility of being smarter because I'm at the library I guess.

Sixth, I don't have any pictures of the house yet, but I do have a really cute one of my Taffy cat sitting in the poop tray of our big birds cage. Yeah, you will need to see that one for sure now.

Seventh, I really am almost all moved in. It's just that this home was near a tornado, and their is a little work that has to be done, and it is sucking all of our bonus child, and boost, and refund credit tax stuff. Husband is now at this moment replacing the electric fireplace with a wood pellet stove. We are going, and by we I mean my husband, to put tile down in the kitchen and the back hall. We already have it. Ready to go, just need the time to do it. Ha!

The back privacy fence is missing about one and a half sections (thank you tornado), and will have to be replaced.
We are all well and kicking and sassy here. I don't know if I will be able to have any set days for being on the computer, but I will always try to read all of your blogs even if I don't leave a comment.
Oh, eighth, the girls are doing fine with the school change, but the boy isn't. He has decided that he isn't going to talk to anyone on the bus, and maybe in his two class', because he "isn't here to meet people". I would really like those of you who would to please pray for this kid. 17 and going through a major attitude change, and not a change for the best. I think he feels that if he makes friends, or has fun here he is betraying his girlfriend back in Pleasant Hope. He has a job, so I don't know how he gets along with people there. It's just a little bouncy right now.

Hello Everybody!

Well, I'm back...kinda.
I am at the library using wi- fi for free.
I will come here probably twice a week to post and check up on what everyone is doing.
My new work is alright so far, and I get half off my lunch. And all the soda from the soda fountain I want!!!
I will get pictures of the house posted next time I'm here if I can. I have the two girls with me now, and one is on her computer and the other is bored, so next time I might come with only one...or none. Anyway, until next time, bye.

Busy Weekend

We now own a new- to us- house! I will get pictures as soon as I can. The girls and I went down today and they cleaned - wood work, window sills, bathrooms, and floors. While I mowed the 9 inch grass. Monday we are using the huge rental truck to move everything that we don't get with little trips this weekend.
My hands hurt from mowing. :(
Last night I got a "moisturizing micro bead" thingy from my face soap in my right eye. I now have a horrible little puss thing on the top of my eye, like when I pull up my eye lid- the top of my eye ball. I've been using eye drops and rubbing it. My husband said that the soap burned it. It really hurts when I push on it. My mom would say "don't push on it" I shouldn't rub it either I guess, but it feels good. Anyway, Have a great weekend everyone.

9-11 Remembered

Let us never forget.
Pray it never repeats.

This is a poem I am putting in my "goodbye" card for my co-workers at work. :)

See the kitchens, see them all.
Busy little cooks.
Some are short, and some are tall
two of them are goofs.
Quiet cooks, and loud cooks, and some are in between.
But all today are sad cooks...:(
you see, they've lost their queen.

And the great part will be when they fight over who the two goofs are.
I am also giving them a little plastic cup with a few candies in it. I'm nice, because I am their Queen! I need a crown.

Trunk Monkey


I have a new job waiting for me when we move to Republic. I am once again going to be baking. At least I know what I'm doing....kinda sorta. :)
I will be working at a pizza place making the cookies, and other yummy stuff, and some of the bread. I get only .40cents less an hour, and around the same hours a week. I figured that with out 20% being taken out for retirement (if I wanted it or not), and not having it stretched out to cover summer...I will be getting more each week. No benefits yet (that's what she said), but I can eat for half off. I may buy a lunch box. Pizza is not really my cup of tea, so to speak. But I love Italian sandwiches!
Our boy now has his first car, a 93 Ford Mercury. Burgundy. It's a big car, but rather sharp I say. It has some "used car" things about it, but hey, he is only 17. It runs!
The boy has been burning his candle at both ends...meaning staying up way too late talking to a certain red headed little girl, and yesterday was out in the drizzle learning man stuff about his car. So, today he has a 100.6+ temp. In bed being sick...talking on the phone. Only one more week of school left here for them, and I think that he may just reach his requirements and finish at the semester break,(1 to 2 credits left) and than do...well, I haven't guessed that far yet. He is already accepted to MSU in the fall, so I know that much. Gets at least one scholarship too! Needs a few more, but should get them...he is kinda smart.
Oldest girl is holed up in her room these days, but that will change when we move because for one, we will not have Internet. I plan on going to someplace to do my blog things. Otherwise she is all good on the move, just will miss her peeps.
Youngest is ready for the move too, as far as I can tell. We hope that her mouth won't get her nose bounced off her face. Hmmmm. I guess if it happens it happens. Shes not worried about it.
Hubby's job is still in the training phase, and not his favorite thing, but he will overcome! Once he is cut loose to do his job it will be alright. He has PTO's that he has to ride along with and they all want things done differently. Every one has their own little quirks I guess.
So that's what is going on here. Today we (hubby and myself) moved boxes to one area, cleaned wood cabinets, master bathroom, and master bedroom. My hands are all puffy from the cleaning water. Hope I don't die from it, or at least get moved first...I might otherwise get stuffed into a box, and not get unpacked until Christmas!!
