Blurry...that's a good word for today!

Let's see...everything was a bit blurry today!
Late last night my computer crashed and I was left with a computer that was very ill and incapable of going on any longer. I had to kill my old computer and restart her all over again...a new identity and new transition a new harddrive memory. With her, she took all my memories....good, sad, happy, mad, anguish, turmoil, delight, adoration, hard work and sloughed it off like a really bad sunburn peeling! DANG IT!
Ok, so it wasn't too bad! I lost photos from October-January 1. Thank goodness birthday photos first haircuts and the like were all printed and waiting to be placed in photo albums! However, the everyday sweet funny photos... gone like a dust bunny swept up into a dustpan and placed in the trash!
I do not even want to think about the digital elements and the digital layouts I created....
Speaking of dust bunnies, I cleaned today. That was good...all while trying to fix the computer, which by the way it is....about 75% anyways...I think I need to do a total flush and get it completely back to factory settings.
Honestly, I am not sure how it happened. But if I had to guess, my bets would be that it is yahoo it is no way wanting to reload on my computer!
Well, another shocker of the day, was a letter form the state saying my license was pending suspension!?! WTH??? Supposedly it dealt with my car insurance...which I might add is only 53.00 a month.
I have farm bureau insurance and we have house, medical and car through this insurance. The bill is paid directly out of my checking account. So, why in the world was my insurance not up to date???
Let me give oyu a little background...I get no less than 5 statements a month from the insurance company...receipts and farm news...etc.
Side note, I don't live on a farm although occasionally my space can look like a pig pen. See above, where I cleaned today.
Well, back to what I was apparently I was sent a letter, just one for a renewal membership to farm bureau in the amount of 35.00 a year. Seeing that I get a trillion letters form them a month. I had apparently gotten lacadasical about opening each and every receipt from Farm Bureau. The note was overlooked and stuck in my file cabinet under insurance.
So, in not paying my 35.00 and my car insurance was due up, I was kicked out of farm bureau for not paying my 35.00. Let's take a second and slowly digest this. We pay for homeowners insurance, medical insurance, car insurance to Farm doing the math....that's a lot of money. Perhaps you could say we are good customers!
Do you not think SOMEONE would have called to see what was going on as in not paying our 35.00 we were somehow communicating to the bureau that we would like to be dropped of all insurance through them!????! Apparently, we were not as important as I would have liked to think we were. No call, no nothing....until the state writes me and tells me I am going to have my license suspended in one months time! WTH????? I follow the rules....don't stress me out like this!!!!
Oh, was my faiult for ignoring the trillionth Farm Bureau memo!

See I can speek in trillions now because that is common speak in our crumbling economy.

Ok, back to the story...go to the office, sign the papers, pay the money...back in business and I once again skirt the long arm of the law!

Hey, tonight was so fun! I invited my parents and aunt and uncle for dinner. I was planning to order some great pizza and wings and have everyone over. Sit at our very big dining room table that fits does!
My parents stole my thunder in paying for the food! They have us over for dinner so much(hey wait a minute...just when was the last time we were there???? What's the deal??? You would think they were moving to a new house or something!?!) and my aunt and uncle treated us last Friday so we wanted to repay the favor! I think my mom thinks we are in the poor house. Mike says "we are not on welfare, yet".

Speaking of business...if you are even remotely thinking about building a garage...please contact . Mike will cut you a great deal and you will not be disappointed in your product! It is after all, Florida's #1 Garage builder in quality, craftsmanship, and customer service! So, get on the ball and check it out. You won't regret it!

Um, yeah, that seemed like a real blatant service announcement...well it was.

So let's see....Jayda finished up an adorable giraffe project for school that is due tomorrow...let me go take a pic and I will be right back!

Okay, I am a back. Did you miss me???

How great was that? And it was her idea to paint the spots. I showed her to do one and she went to town!
I am so proud of Jayda's school work...that girl has really been working hard! She is keeping her straight A average so far too!

Jay is such a sweetie pie...but boy oh boy does he go go go!

He is so silly and loves to entertain us.
His big thing is, if he wants you to look at him, he says, "mom mom ma ma ma mom ma ma mom" to get your attention and then does something funny or shows you something he likes. Like Thomas the Train, he is loving him right now! I'd love for him to have the whole Thomas train set if I weren't so afraid they were made with lead!
Anyway, wanna know how he started to say this?
Jayda has a way of incessantly talking...sometimes I get busy and tune her out. In order to get my attention she says, "mom mom ma ma ma ma mommy mom ma ma mom mom mommy". Boy, the things he learns. Oh and by the way...his dad hates it when he is trying to get his attention and calls him mom! hahahahaha

Ok and for the last blurry thing....
Objects in motion do not photograph well with a flash!
Boy never stops! Michael put his bike helmet on as he rode around the hous eon his dump truck grammy and grampy got for him! he has just learned how to ride things today!

Ok, on that note it is late and I need to get to bed!

I am going to try and do better with posting so keep an eye out!
