stuff

well I got all the moving of post from myspace blog to this one done - YEA! so now everything is in one place =)


also I've been putting off sending those pictures to the son. I've just been thinking what happens if they get tore up there? what happens if they lose them? what happens if he never shares any of them with his sister? what happens if years from now my ex-step-dad says "hey I could of stuck them in a safety deposit box some where!" what if? what if? what if?


I can go on and on and think of a million different bad scenarios. Pictures are my weakness. I know that there are so many things you can get from just 1 picture, let alone a box! And I always think the worst of every situation. So I knew this was going to happen, but I still don't like it!


I have no clue how I'm going to handle it when the kids grow up! I have some real problems I need to deal with.


So I'm just going to do it. I said I would and so I will. My stomach just clenches to think of all the things that could go wrong. I just have to LET GO and let things fall where they will.


something great happened today too - I went to Payless to get #1 a new pair of shoes cause his are broke down bad even thought they are only 6 months old. (He wears a size 11 !!!) And we got him a $30 pair for $11 !!! Plus since they have their BOGO sale I got a new pair of sneakers too - only $5 - YEA!!


well gotta go - still have about 250 memorial sites to create =S
later...........



~oh and I couldn't help myself I scanned in about 30 of
those pictures so I have some of them LOL!

jello shots


Well I've got a great little story for ya today - it's all about our latest party. So last Monday we were chatting with a friend and we all got an idea. Wouldn't it be great if we all got together to drink and visit on Friday? OF COURSE! So he says I'll get ahold of everyone and let you guys know who all will be coming. Well we call on Wednesday and he says - I haven't been able to get ahold of too many and the ones that I have said probably not but they'd try. Well ok not the best but I figure - hey why not send out some last minute e-vites? Can't hurt right? So I get the old PSP beast running and come up with this -



Funny as all get out huh? Well it would be if ya knew the guy LOL! But anyway..... This generated a couple more responses, so it served it's purpose.

Friday was busy as usual - being payday and all (not including our whole hafta use the car fiasco - explain later). So we go by and ask our friend if he's found out anymore and he says no, not really. So we ask - SPECIFICALLY - are you coming? because we're going to buy some beer - if he's coming, if not no big deal (this friend is a MOOOCH - his words! - so we were buying this round). He say - OF COURSE! I will definitely be there!

So we go home finish the 5 billion things that needed to be done before anyone showed up. One of which is to make more (yes more!) jello shots. So I get busy. Here's all the things I'm overseeing - #1 is cooking supper, #2 is cleaning the living room, #3 is cleaning the bathroom & doing laundry, Darkside & #4 are watching TV. I'm going through emails, d/l'ing some audiobooks, doing jello shots, making sure the first 3 are doing their jobs.

So guess what happened? I ended up getting hurt - stupid Anne! While dipping the BOILING water out of the pan and into the measuring cup I splashed a little bit of the water onto my hand - which caused me to jump, did I mention BOILING WATER? So then I spill the almost half a cup of water in my hand on ME! Right on my stomach & leg! Here's what it looks like today - almost a week later (my stomach) -



UGH! If it looks like it hurts then it probably does! And this - it HURTS!

We made a total of about 70 jello shots - I always go overboard LOL! Well every time I've made less and always run out so I was aiming for more this time.

No one showed - at all.

So only about 4 of those jello shots were ate - by me =)

Needless to say, I will NOT be making jello shots again anytime soon!

And we've also gave up on the idea of having our annual Halloween Party this year. We definitely need to find better "associates" - at least more that have manners!

I really appreciate the 4 that had the courtesy to reply. You wouldn't believe that some people don't reply even AFTER the fact. Oh well.

So since I'll not be making jello shots anytime soon, I'll share the recipe =)



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~remember adults only!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~NEVER try to boil liquor!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jello Shots

1 package Jello
1½ cups BOILING water
½ cup desired liquor

Directions - mix the boiling water with the Jello. after a couple minutes add liquor. then pour into desired vessels - I like itty bitty plastic cups. You can use anything from ice cube trays to cups or bowls. ALWAYS USE PLASTIC! unless you want to eat the stuff with a spoon.

Some variations -

Quick Set
½ cup BOILING water, mix with Jello & liquor, then add 1 cup ice. Also you can always put them into the freezer for about 45 minutes for a quick set.

Very Potent
do the water however (reg or quick set) but use ½ cup less, then add 1 cup liquor. People who do not drink alot will puke!

Jiggler-like
just add less water than usual - like a couple tablespoons to ¼ cup less.


Good Combinations (I've tried)
  • peach & whiskey
  • lime & gin
  • black cherry & hot damn! 100 proof
  • cherry & hot damn! 100 proof
  • watermelon & vodka
  • orange & vodka
  • orange & peach schnapps
  • strawberry & vodka

well there's all my secrets LOL!

gotta go for now

old pictures

Well I called on Sunday. I got an answering machine - funny thing is it's the EXACT same one his dad has LOL! But anyway I left a message, it sounded pretty lame. So all day I was waiting for him to call back and wouldn't ya know it he did when I was goofing off with Darkside on the phone! But he left a message for me to call back today (Monday). Today was one of those days - you know - the kind where you think you'll go insane? So I didn't get to call him back. But I'm going to tomorrow.

I wanted to share a funny thing Darkside said the other day here to someone - who will remain nameless to save their dignity LOL! He said - "Quit thinking about my dog like that!!" LMAO!! It was PRICELESS!!

We went on Sunday and started to fix my dad's tombstone. It's going to take another trip there to finish it. It'll look better when we're done although I'm not so sure I like the color. Here's some pics (click for bigger ones) -

Also we've been doing this really cool thing, it's called PaperBack Swap. It's great cause all you have to spend is the cost to mail your books to someone! And the best part is when you join they GIVE you credits! We've got a ton of books on there right now but I'm not leaving them on there too long because we got to get them out of the house. But we've found a ton of books that we want. And the great thing is you can buy the credits for $3.45 each if you want! That's a better price than going to ebay or amazon! So we plan to buy some credits for some of the books Darkside has picked out. They are so he can finish his Ravenloft collection.

I've added buttons here on the page for PBS but just in case here's another one -




We get a credit for each person we get to sign up - which means a book for me!


ok that's all for tonight!
later......
