We interrupt This Blog To Bring You News and Updates of the Little Miss

Hi, Erika here. I'm tired of looking at "How to Lose a Teenager" so I thought I'd give you a brief update. Yes, the Little Miss is safely in the new house, in the new city. Furniture has arrived, but repairs are stilling being made and so nothing has really been unpacked, also the computer HAS NOT arrived yet, so we will have to continue to wait patiently for her re-emergence into cyberspace. Until then rest assured she is going crazy with all she has to do, AND missing us as much as we are missing her. At least that's what I tell myself.

You may now continue with your regularly scheduled web surfing.


Little Miss here, broadcasting live from Starbucks (a T-Mobile hotspot, costing me $6.00 for the first hour, $.10/minute thereafter so this will be brief as I've got ALOT of catching up to do). Thanks Erika (aka my favorite friend--just ask Brandy) for keeping blogworld up to date. Let's naps for the kids for the past week and a half as we have either been on the road, hanging out at the beach with three other unruly children (wink, wink), living out of boxes, dealing with plumbing issues, drainage issues in the backyard, electrical issues, cable and home security issues...etc. But wait, there's more! Last night, my oldest woke up with a fever, blisters in her mouth, vomiting and the runs, then today my husband's radiator blew on his way home from work! Anyone like to join us? Feel free. We now have an extra bedroom and a loft (turned office). We may not be able to afford our mortgage after all this, but we're willing to either a) sell one of the munchkins or b) lease the spare bedroom. Right now, I'm voting for the first option. We can always make another one later.

I heard a country song on the radio on my way over here, and it was SOOO fitting..."if you're going through hell, keep on goin', don't slow down----you might get out 'fore the devil even knows you're there..." So as you can tell, I really can't stay in one place too long! Gotta keep goin'!

I'll be in touch as the cable company has PROMISED to come out to the house tomorrow!!! Yeah!!! It'll be like waking up on Christmas morning.

How to Lose a Teenager in 10 Days

I don't know how, but it's happened. **** if you're reading this, know that I love you. I tried giving you everything in my power to make things right. It hurt me to see you make wrong choices and put my family at risk. It broke my heart to see you drive away. I wanted to put my arms around you, tell you that I love you. I wanted to explain...but I never got the chance. My world is heavy, and I can't breathe. Somehow I lost.

hey einstein! patent this!

shout out to mrs. flinger

I daydream all sorts of horrific things in the hope that bad things always happen "so unexpectedly" that I never would have imagined such a tragedy--but ah ha! i've discovered a way to foil fate! because guess what?! I expected it! therefore, it won't happen. It can't happen! I should really patent and sell this stuff. fate in a bottle! name your price (i'm desperate).

House Update:
Selling a house sucks. Buying a house sucks even more. Try doing both in less than eight weeks and moving out of state. It will be a miracle if we get through this shit.

I lost my temper. If anyone sees it please notify the authorities immediately! Suspect considered armed and VERY dangerous, please approach with caution. Suspect last seen speeding out of control when milk spilled all over the kids' bed.

Reward being offered--my friends, family, and the general public are suffering.

little ant, BIG WORLD

I was in a big city airport the other day, crashed on the floor because our flight kept getting delayed, and I thought I'd pass out from shear exhaustion of our week-long househunt expedition...when I noticed an ant walking across the carpet. I couldn't help but think how in the hell does a tiny ant end up in a place like this? We are on the FOURTH floor of a major CITY airport, and here is this tiny little ant--determined to get wherever it's going. I wanted to smash it, put it out of it's endless misery...but I simply couldn't do it. I actually found myself amazed at this little creature; even making up some children's story about how it escaped the weeds to find food in the airport for it's dying aunt and baby cousins...who was I to get in the way of a major rescue mission?! Rock on little ant. The people are behind you 100%.
