Oh My Aching Brain!!!


Today I spent the day being a judge for a National Forensic League event. UGH!!!! My teeny tiny brain is full.....chuck full.....

If you haven't been a part of these events.....I recommend it!! WOW!! These kids are really something!! Brady competes in United States Extemporaneous in which he has 1/2 hour to prepare a 7 minute speech on a given topic.....for instance today he spoke on Pres. Obama's trip to India, Keith Oberman's donating to the Democratic party, and Pres Bush's tax cuts. These are questions that he pulled at the beginning of the 1/2 hour prep, he researched and prepared during that 1/2 hour, and then must present a 7 minute talk stating his opinion, and siting references that support his view!! OH MY!!!!

I judged Humor in which the person gives a previously prepared presentation. They are judged on character interpretation and delivery as well as a small portion of content.

I also judged Duo which is much like humor....however it is a team of 2.....and these 2 are not allowed to look at nor touch each other......however they must convey their message fluidly!! This was very interesting to see them interact.....without interacting!! :O)

The third event I judged was impromptu......YIKES!!! In this event.....a student draws a prepared statement, prepares and delivers a speech supporting the statement or showing how they differ from it......all within 7 minutes total. They are judged on content, supporting information, as well as delivery. Some were a little less than wonderful however, a few were absolutely amazing!!

There is absolutely no way on God's green earth that I would have as a teen student done what these kids do......there is very little way I'd do it now!! I am not that confident......nor can I prepare and produce that quickly!! They all were soooooo very impressive!! I am thankful that I was forced to do this.......and actually.....I look forward to the next time they force me!! :O)

If you want to feel intimidated by the teen generation......check it out!! You will be impressed I promise!!


....and now.....I've got to go rest my brain.....it is sooooo little.....to have beheld sooooo much!! :O)
Nighty Night!!

I've Gotta Ask.....Is This Normal?????

Is it normal.......

  • On Fox News Channel.....they've been playing these "commercials"....or public announcement type things where a song plays over while the action plays out the words.....this morning I saw one about a man remembering a boxcar race where he let his disabled neighbor boy run his car.......is it normal to scream and cry for a half hour over this commercial???? Good golly can't wait for the Christmas beer commercials!!!!
  • I'm starting a new eating plan on Sunday morning.....so to prepare........I ate the dog, I ripped the hinges off the freezer to get to the ice cream, and I licked the salt off the empty chip bag......is this normal?????
  • In my embarrassment over eating, I considered going to the grocery store and purchasing everything I ate, and then eating the same amount that Rick would know had been gone.....just so no one noticed I ate it all.....that's normal right!!
  • Knowing that purchasing replacement food was a terrible idea that would never work......I considered moving to Mexico!!
  • Knowing moving to Mexico was a terrible idea because I'd probably end up in a drug war somewhere.....I decided Canada was a much better option!! Not crazy at all!!
So there you go.......completely normal right......well considering I'm a 41 year old hormonally deprived gal......I think anything less than homicidal is perfectly fine......DON'T YOU AGREE!!!! This is where you giggle nervously, agree, and get the heck outta my reach!! :O)

Have a great Friday......and for all my hormonal gal-pals......let's keep each other outta the dark side okie dokie!!!! :O#

C'mon.....I NEED My Beauty Rest!!

I do!! At a few decades past 20 years old......I need every second I can get!! Last night I went to bed about midnight....aaaahhhhhh!!
......sleeping soundly!! See.....I am much more beautiful....when asleep!! :O)

About 2:30am'ish....Maggie Mae the crazy cat invited guests over for a lil' one on one knock down brawl and Miss Opal our lab-child decided she was unhappy about it.....
....what the.....Oh you two....go to bed!!

So the outcome of another night without sleep you ask...........gorgeous don'cha think!! Is 9am too early to go to bed for the night????

Have a great day....you know.....all those who aren't on a sleep deprived rampage today....for my fellow insomniacs.......I'm selling my animal children and/or husband and child (just in case they bother me too) to the gypsies!! :O)

Okay Boys and Girls.....Put Yer Thinkin' Caps On!!

About a year ago we bought a new vacuum....a Kenmore bag less. It was nice as we tried it out in the store.....I loved the wand with the brush to sweep our furniture with.....the sales-dude explained that it had 4000 filters so no dust would get back into the air....blah, blah, blah...anyway...we were sold!!

I HATE THIS VACUUM!! Although it makes wonderful dog hair, dust bunny bird nests around one of the 4000 filters.....it picks NOTHING up!! ARG!!!!! Now you know how much I love cleaning.....but c'mon.....if I gotta do it.....the very least I expect is that it actually look clean after I do it!!

This is where you come in......as I see it....here are my choices....

  • I've heard good things about the Dyson brand bag less vacuum.....anyone have one? I like the idea of not having to purchase bags all the time....however....I understand that the bag less get's bogged down and looses suction. So anyone with one....what do ya think....is it worth the extra money for the brand????
  • I could go back to the Hoover Windtunnel. We bought one 10 years or more ago and it's still is great......the wand pick up like new!!
  • I could take a straw and suck up the dirt and spit it into a trash bag.....I'm thinking I'd have much more suction than my stupid Kenmore....but you know.....I'm not sure!!
  • We have a wonderful gas leaf blower!!
So.....give me your best shot!! Spill the beans....dish the dirt....tell me wha'cha think!!

Thanks!! :O) Have a great day!!

You Know the Kind!!

There are those among us that just have a way!!

I am a horrible blogger!! I find a few moments a day to get online....and usually those moments are spent reading email and occasionally checking out a few blogs.....however....rarely do I take the time to comment on others' blogs....even rarer yet.....I am horrible about sending out a "howdy" kinda email!! I just don't take the time....no excuses.....it's just not something I am good at!!

However.....there are those that do!

Teresa from the Deppen Homestead 1862 has it....she has a way about her....she takes the time!! Though I don't do it often.....in my blog hopping....I often see that Teresa visits many of our blogs in blogland.......I often see that she gives an encouraging word wherever she may visit. I just really must tell you......Ms. Teresa has warmed my heart on more than one occasion!! Today....not unlike many other days, she took the time to send me a little note that just made my heart smile!! She didn't need to do this.....she doesn't "know" me nor does she have spare time to burn......Teresa is just a kind hearted treasure that makes the time to give joy!!

There are many kinds of folks in this world of ours......some encounters with people leave you filled with a joy that makes you warm and ready to share that joy......Ms. Teresa.....you are a joy giver...and I am thankful to call you my friend!! Thank you for being and sharing the joy that makes life fun!!

Please....has Teresa visited your blog......has she left you an encouraging word that really made you smile......has she taken the time to spread her joy in your life????? Let's all send her a little of that joy!! Let's all say thank you......to Teresa......and to the many like her that make this online community such a great place to play!! Let's spread the joy of thanksgiving......all over blogland!!

How 'bout it......have you taken the time today?

New Adventures of.......

...Maggie Mae...the crazy cat.....



Yesterday, Rick and I spent the day junkin' at Roger's Flea Market and I found this yummy wool quilt....I haven't found a home for it yet, however, Maggie Mae, the crazy cat has found a home......on it!! Great find!! :O)

We stopped in Augusta on the way home and did a quick run-through at Manfull Orchards and Farmgirl Finds....Oh my goodness!! Run....don't walk....(er um drive carefully probably) right now to these wonderful shops!! Not only will you find a few of our treasures there, you'll find yummy baked goods, fresh produce from the farm, home-grown beef, and gorgeous must-have antiques!! You will definitely want to make plans to come see all the Christmas goodies both shops have in store for ya!! I came home with a yummy "Christmas Spice" candle that I can burn and fool my family into thinking I baked!! :O)

BTW....we came home with a huge load from Roger's....watch for more great treasures to come from our shop with the glorious "trash" we found!!
Yep!! She's comfy......and until the next addition of "Adventures of Maggie Mae, the Crazy Cat".....have a meow-i-ful day!!

....fer'real....I'm not!! Occasionally I play one on TV, but honestly.....I can run a saw and still have all my digits remain intact.....I can sew and fix lunch at the same time!! Most times I can walk and chew gum at the same time too!! I could help Brady with his math homework....clear till 3rd grade and I only forgot where I was s'posed to be once (this week)!! So clearly.....I'm not unintelligent!!

So......how do I explain this......
....oh for the love of pete......how in the h3ll do you rip off a piece of seran wrap with out going completely insane???????

And now......it's time for me to take my afternoon meds!! Toodles!!

Another One Bites the Dust!!

Fwooooo!! Show number 4 of 5 is over and the remains are strung out throughout the house!! Geesh!! There wasn't much left again.......but boy does my house need a good cleaning and organizing!!

I think it perfectly normal that there are crates of babies in the dining room ......don't you!! There's an extra cabinet in the family room and if you come in the door too quickly.....you'll see it up close and personal like when you run smack-dab into it!!

There's still a jack-o-lantern and black crow on my dining room table...as well as the crud Brady dumped from his book-bag last night!! I'm either early for next year's Halloween celebration.....or I perhaps may be running a bit late in getting my decor down!!

No one had clean socks this morning......but we did all have lots of deodorant because I had been out of milk for almost a week....(we have eaten homemade bread and pie for every meal......don't be impressed.....I picked them up from the market I wholesale to when I made a delivery late last week).... so I was forced to get groceries yesterday!!

What are my duties today you ask........yep!! I think I'll play in my room!! **giggles** Let them wear stinky socks......and their underwear backwards!! They're men after all....stank is manly....right!! tee hee hee!! Yea....NO....I gotta live with 'em!! I'll do laundry....and play!! The cleaning can wait till tomorrow....or next week!! :O)

Have a great one all!!

Guess What!!

I've been to heaven......and it's located in Waynseburg, Ohio!!!!

I had the opportunity to visit Linda at the Keeping Room today, and she was gracious enough to give me a tour of her home!! It may have been because I begged and pleaded......or the fact that I stood wide eyed and slurping up the slobbers while stammering and stuttering and peeking around the corner....but she was very gracious to allow me!! :O)

OH MY GOODNESS!!! Linda and Kenny have a GORGEOUS home.....and I mean gorgeous!! Each and every inch of each and every room has been given the perfect touch....prim heaven.....absolute prim heaven!!

And they are just the most loverly folks!!! They didn't treat me as though I was a complete freakazoid at all.....even though I touched everything while crying out in pure joy!! I only fainted 3 times....in each room...overcome by the wonderfulness!! but still......they were so wonderfully generous in allowing me my moment!! They may not know this......but I'm moving in!! :O)

If you get the chance.......make a road trip to The Keeping Room in Waynesburg, Ohio!! It would be well worth your time!!

Have a grand evening!! I'll be dreaming good dreams of my new family!! :O)

The Benefits of Not Being Able to Stand Up Straight

There are sooooo many benefits to having a crappy back.....you know.....except for the stabbing pain!! Yep!! Let me share a few....

I've always been soooo tall......yay!!!....now I get to see how it feels to be short.....because I can't stand up straight so my normal 5'7" is a mere 4' from my toes to my humped shoulders!!

I can see all the dust bunnies I've been missing when I vacuum......now if I could only bend over enough to pick them up!! On the bright side.....I really don't have great control over my left leg and it kinda drags behind me when I walk.....so I'm sweeping up quite a few of them!!

I'm thinking I'm doing at least half of an ab crunch right.....therefore.....it's gotta be doing at least half the benefits!!

When I swallow the food is only making it to my mid throat soooo......it can't possibly be making it to my hips!!

The pained look on my face totally takes away from the fact that my hair looks like crap!!

The burn on my forehead from trying to prepare lunch today has completely removed the fine lines that were developing!!

See......sooooo many benefits!! I'm really enjoying the whole process!! Hope you are having a great day as well!! :O) Toodles!!

Please Send Prayers

We live in a small town......the kind of community where everyone knows everyone.....it's still safe here......we are fairly insulated from the world......when tragedy happens......the villagers feel the pain!!

Last week.....a young mother of 2 killed her two children and then herself. Her sister is in Brady's class at school.....her father goes to church with my mom......one of the children's grandparents live in the condo association where we do the landscaping. It just makes me feel sooooo sad!! How awful for soooo many!! Please pray for them!!

Yesterday morning a 23 year old angel on earth, Rosie......passed away after a long and strong battle with cancer......she grew up in my dad's church......we know the family well!! She was my mom's nurse in the rehab center where she went following hip surgery......she was a blessing to the nursing community.....and to each and everyone who saw her smile!!! Please pray for them!!

Tragically.....this 23 year old's aunt was completing a "memory motorcycle ride" in honor of Rosie late last night and was killed in an accident. Please pray for them!!

So much tragedy!! So very sad!! My heart goes out to each and every one of these families.....I'm not really sure how you cope with sooooo much.....except to just lean......lean on Him!! Please send your prayers to our community and to each and every one of these families won't you?

Pray for the Halette family.

Pray for the Moreland/Derby family.

Pray for the Search family.

May God be with them all......

Stacey's Helpful Hints.......

On this fine Tuesday I thought I might share a little of my knowledge......you know.....share the love......spread a good word......be a helpful hand to all!! :O) Sooooo......here you go.....listen up......are ya ready to learn.....to be amazed?????.......(drum roll please)......

You'll know it's time to tidy up.........when you can no longer walk through the room without using the leaf blower to clear the path!! The solution........run the leaf blower......and......or snow blower!! You're floor will be spic and span in no time at all!! Your walls and windows however may need a lil' extra attention.....like perhaps a patch or 2......but the floors......WOW!!!! CLEAN!!!!!!

You're welcome!! :O) It's a joy to care soooo much!! tee hee hee!!! Have a great Tuesday!!

How Come......

.....my brain works so perfectly..........at all the wrong times???????

I remember everything I need from the grocery store........on the way home!!!

I remember that Brady needs picked up from school, practice, or meetings........when he calls and tells me I'm late!!!

I remember exactly why I came into the room......an hour after I came into the room!!!

I recognize each and every person who comes up to me and starts chatting........the next day after I've looked like a complete idiot by carrying a conversation while thinking the entire time.....who the heck is this person!!!!

I remember the reason I called my mom.........as soon as I hang up!!

I remember that I need white thread........when it's 12am and I'm no where near a store!!

I remember that Brady needs his uniform washed......10 minutes before a match!!

I'm sure there are lots more times that my brain works perfectly.......but I can't remember them right now!!! Sooooooo......how come?????

Hope you're havin' a greatly wonderfully forgetful day today!!

I've Got a Question!!

How is it that my bum is sooooo big that I send little children screaming and yet my bladder is the size of a pea?

Here is my routine.......

run to the potty

work, work, work, work, work.......realize I shoulda gone 1/2 hour ago so I run to the potty

work, work, fix a meal for the fifteenth time of the day (I don't eat 15 times.....I just cook a lot
because no one is ever home at the same time....and for some reason both of them require
food!!)....work, work, work.....realize I shoulda gone 2 hours ago so I book it to the potty

So there you have it.......WHY????? I'm sure it's not because I drink a gallon of water and/or coke zero each hour!!! I'm sure it's not that I go only when it begins to dribble down my leg!! I'm sure it's that my bladder is the size of a pea right!!! It's a complete puzzle to me!! Huh!!! These are the things the keep me up at night!! :O)

Anyway.......I hope you have a great Friday (and not a pi$$y one) hardy har har har!!! Don't forget to mark your calendars and make your plans to attend A Simple Country Gathering next weekend!!! You don't want to be the only one on the planet that doesn't come do you!!!!!!!! :O)
