I Have Been A Bad Blogger!!!

I have been very lackadaisical with my blog lately. I must apologize for my long stretches with nothing written. Do you ever feel like you simply don't have anything to write about? That's been me lately. Nothing new, nothing exciting...nothing. That's my life these days...boring. Therefore I am a boring person. I feel boring..and bored. Just one of those things I guess. Hopefully, this little stage will soon pass and I'll be back to my old blogging self. Maybe something exciting will happen this week in my, Paris Hilton will give me a buzz and ask me to go partying with her. Hopefully we won't wear the same outfit..or..the Pope will call for some spiritual advise. Maybe Lumpy will learn to read this week or Tequila will learn french. Anything!
I'll keep you all posted, should any of this happen.
Take Care!

I've Been Tagged....Thank You Abbagirl.

1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.

2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Fact #1: I used to teach a woman's bible study group once a week and the adult Sunday school at my church.

Fact #2: If you're a guy and you think you can get away with hitting one of my daughters, you'll find this old lady is pretty good at kicking ass. (Been there, done that, broke my foot on his stupid ass! But when I was through with him, he ran away like a little girl and never came

Fact #3: I love to sing. Took lessons for years but too shy to sing in front of anyone except at church with a group.

Fact #4: I'm very proud of my kids. Ashley is half way through her social work program at college and once Holly is done school, she's going into the seminary to become a pastor. (Mind you, a crazy pastor with piercings!! I love it..)

Fact #5: Did not find true love until I was 43 years old, even though I was married to Fang for nearly 20 years before that.

Fact #6: I'm writing a book about my crazy, mixed up life and I'm nearly done with the rough draft.

Fact #7: I have never been interested or tried drugs until my mother talked me into it a few times when I was young. I hated it and haven't done any since.

Fact #8: I would have to say that right now is the happiest time in my life so far.

O.k. Now it's time to tag 8 people...I tag Keith, Newt, Moonrat, Michgib, Tink, Bubbles, Pipe Tobacco, and Andrew. Have fun people and I look forward to reading your facts.

Tomorrow we leave for the 'Love Nest' so I will be back to my blog by Tuesday. Have a great weekend everyone!

I'm Finally Back...thanks for your patience!!

Hi everyone. So sorry I was gone for so long. At the last minute I decided to stay at the 'love nest' on my own for a few days. I kind of enjoyed being on my own for a change but that quickly got old and I missed my hubby being there. It's almost too quiet when you're by yourself. Sigh...the love nest just isn't the same without my love being there with me.
I put some garbage outside to put in the shed and a little while later I noticed something moving outside on the lawn. It was a gopher and he kept standing up and sniffing in the direction of the garbage. 'Oh no you don't'. He was so cute and must have stayed in the yard for a full 15 minutes, giving me time to have a good look at him. We also have some little red squirrels that are so adorable. I broke up some white bread and threw it around the deck for them. A little while later I heard a knock on the door and one of the squirrels was standing there with the bread in his hand. He demanded that from now on I need to put out multigrain bread, as he is trying to watch his figure. Fine. and so...
Hubby finally showed up on Sunday and I was so happy to see him. Let's face it, gophers are not generally known for their conversational skills. They tend to only want to talk about themselves. It gets tiresome.
We piled into the car and went for dinner in a nearby town. We had a great time, and dinner was excellent.
I was especially grateful that Hubby was there that night as a huge storm came up, the most severe storm I had ever witnessed since I was 4 years old and was in a hurricane. It was very close to tornado speed winds. There was a clap of thunder so loud that it shook the whole trailer. I knew something close had been hit. We were watching it out of the patio door and I noticed that the tree directly in front of the deck, which is at least 200 ft. tall, was swaying back and forth! No, not the branches, the actual trunk! If it fell, it could possibly crush our trailer. We decided to get into the car and head out to the front of the park where there weren't as many trees. We sat at the front for awhile and it seemed to be easing off, but on the drive back, the wind picked up again and it began to hail. I was afraid that it would come through the windshield! While driving, we found the source of the big crack of lightening. A huge tree had been hit a street behind our trailer and was laying on the ground. It took a long time for the wind to settle down enough for us to go back in the trailer. I was so grateful Hubby was there and I didn't have to go through that alone. I don't know what I would have done as the trailer park is almost empty on a Sunday night.
I see that Holly hi-jacked my blog while I was away. Actually, I told her to let you all know that I was staying for the week. Thank you for your know..the Darren Hayes pix! She's crazy about him and it was a thrill for her to see him in concert.
Thanks for all of your comments while I was gone. Abbagirl, thanks for the tag and I will work on it this afternoon.
Take care all and I'm glad to be back.

Hello Everyone!
I'm Holly. My mom just wanted me to come on and tell everyone that she decided to stay at the trailer for a few extra days. She says she will be home on tuesday.
Since she isn't here (and can't do anything about it!) i should take over her blog and write something....hmmm......... I can't think of anything to say.

A few weeks ago, I went to see a Darren Hayes concert. You may know him better as the led singer of the group Savage Garden (yes, he is still around!). I'm such a loser but HE TOUCHED MY HAND!! Anyways, I'll post some pix of the concert.

I guess that's all I have to say. My mom will be on next week to tell you guys what's new with her. (and will hopefully have more interesting stories!) Bye!
