aisforamy: december 2011 (pixie stix cocaine)
My husband made the mistake of giving my children a ten dollar bill to chase down the the ice cream man.

After the ice cream was eaten they still have EIGHT giant Pixie Stix tubes. They bragged that they still had a dollar left, but then I found out it was because the guy ran out of Pixie Stix and couldn't give them more.

Oy. Change? What's that?

Well, I got about an hour an a half of sleep last night...and it wasn't enough. Ever have a headache so bad that you felt sick from it, and couldn't even sleep to escape that pain? Yeah. it's like that.

So far, have gotten 42 RSVPs for our Harry Potter party on the 16th. Anyone on my flist that is going to be in AZ then is welcome to come. Prizes, food, games...all catered at an Irish Pub in their party room. It should be awesome!

I have plans today to make sugar skulls, green suckers that look like the dark mark, and assorted other hard candies...if I am not asleep.

When hubby gets home from work, I shall brave the extreme heat and go stand in line for the midnight showing of the Harry Potter movie. Should I be a total geek and wear my cloak and hat?

I also need to brave Wal Mart today...though I am having trouble remembering why. It seemed vitally important to me to go there when I thought of it at two this morning. I'm sure I'll remember sooner or later.

Take care, all!

Oops.

I broke the shovel handle...snapped it right in half. The hole is only about 1/3 of the way finished, and I am not looking forward to finishing the damned thing with a flat head shovel.

Did I mention the three inch bruise on my leg from when the handle snapped?

Ow.

I'm gonna take a little rest, now.

SO!

Yesterday, my kids’ school had a book fair, which was buy one, get one free! Oh, my God, you guys! I spent early a hundred dollars!! They had software, too, so I got TWO of the SIMS complete collection, a CIV CITY Rome (You can build Rome and protect, beautify, farm, and fill it with people and culture! It looks awesome!!), and a collection of games with Boggle, Hangman, Upwords, etc. I also got a few books. *sheepish*

My son’s little play went well…well, it was adorable, at least. They all forgot their lines at least once, the props were a little wobbly, and the music cues were off. It was very entertaining, and the kids put a lot of work into it. I am going to buy the DVD they’re making from it, so I can burn copies for my family.

Last night (early this morning) at 1:30, my dog needed to go out, so I let her out back, and waited by the door for her to do her business, so I could lock the back door and go back to bed. Well, on the way back into the house, she decided to stop and investigate the hole beneath our shed where a stray cat had had kittens. Oy. The mother cat attacked Sadie and chased her all over the yard. She wouldn’t back off until I came and scared her off, and took the dog inside.

The commotion woke my husband (and probably a couple of neighbors), and he went to investigate, and the mama cat came after him, too. My husband doesn’t put up with that crap, and stuck the hose in the hole they’ve been living in, and turned it on. His reasoning is that the cat could have rabies, or something, and if it will attack the dog and a full grown adult, it could seriously hurt one of our kids.

Evidently the rabbit we used to have living under there dug a hell of a burrow, because it took over an hour to fill it up. My husband said that the mother came bolting out and took off running at one point, and he saw at least one kitten after he’d blocked up the main entrance hole, so there must be a back way out of there. I hope the kittens didn’t drown, and that the mother came and took them away somewhere else, but they are wild cats, so they likely wouldn’t have been able to be anyone’s pets. If I thought that the kittens could have been salvaged, I might have made an attempt to nurse them myself until they were old enough for homes, but I don’t think the mother would have allowed it.

My father in law brought by a cat trap this morning, and we are going to try to catch the mother and her mate (who also hangs around, I guess). We can take them to the city dump/landfill and let them loose there, to live happily on mice, roaches, lizards and the like. I don’t know if they still do, but the landfill workers used to encourage this, when people would call to ask if they needed cats down there.

School is out after next Thursday. I am going to be the room mother for the last day of school party in my son’s first grade class. It is going to have a pirate theme, so I am going to be busy making eye patches out of fun foam or felt, or whatever, and finding fun little trinkets for “booty” and getting games ready. I also promised snow cones, so it should be a lot of fun.
That’s pretty much all the rambling I have for now. Hope everyone is doing well!

So! I remembered (barely) that my kids had a dental appointment today, and dropped what I was doing at he school to take them out of class and run them to their check ups. No cavities! Woot!

I had a lot to do today, and got a good portion of it done. The parents came through on the donations we asked for, for the most part, and we have enough candy for about ten carnivals. Lord knows what we are going to do with it all, but we’ll find something. I am still getting volunteers sorted out, but I think we will be all right (knock wood). We won’t have as many games as we could have, but that’s life. Without the people to run them, we can’t put them up.

Tomorrow, I have to finish getting the raffle prizes ready, make sure there is a classroom available to hold the Bingo games in, and pray that there will not be rain. Plus a few dozen other little things I am sure I have not thought of, yet. I will certainly be busy.

I have Art Masterpiece presentations to make tomorrow to the third graders, as well, which will eat up some of my time…and tonight I have to learn about a new artist and piece of art for that…after supervising kids’ homework, cooking dinner and taking Sadie to her training class.

So: Not so much with the RP. Sorry to all those I normally thread with, and those I would love to but don’t have time for at the moment. Hopefully after this weekend, I will be a lot more free.

One or two things that happened today: Rain. The sky gave one HUGE boom of thunder just as the kids were lining up to go inside this morning, and all the kids scattered to their classes in a hurry with a lot of screaming and noise. Then at a quarter after two, it decided to do this again; this accompanied by lightning and torrential downpours just in time for the kids to panic and freak out at dismissal time.

While I was working in the conference room in the office today, a little boy (second grade) was brought in by his teacher, because he’s been disruptive all day, then hit several children with is backpack, kicked a girl, and knocked a table over onto her. He was suspended from school, but the parents would not come and get him. The office had to keep him until the daycare bus came to take him to daycare. This makes be SO mad. Also, apparently the kid has severe ADHD, and the parents keep him heavily medicated. I think they need to reconsider his medication levels, or something. I dunno—but when you use school and daycare that heavily, either you’re a lazy parent, or you have a seriously sucky job that won’t allow you to address discipline problems hen they arise at your kids’ school. Either way, it’s a problem.

All right, enough of my ranting and whining. I need to get some things done around here, and if I sit here too long, I will fall asleep.

OH! One last thing. My husband's quad, that was stolen in November? They found it. It is wrecked all to hell. I know it's not very nice of me to say this, but I hope whoever was riding it (if they knew it was stolen) was hurt in the wreck that caused the damage. They charged my husband $56 to get the thing out of storage before they told him that it was wrecked, too, the jerks.

The woman who bagged my groceries today is apparently on crack or something. I got out to my truck and found that a bag of chips got its own bag, a box of Pop Tarts got its own bag, one of my gallons of water got its own bag (the other didn’t get a bag), and eight bottles of salad dressing (it’s on sale) and a large bottle of creamer all got crammed into a single bag with a growing hole in the bottom.
