The kids are all in school and guess what I have been doing? READING!!!! I have been taking some time for Dana and getting back into my reading. I miss my babies, but time goes by so fast, before you know it their home.

Last time I blogged, we had some pretty horrible storms, I mean horrible. I think we may have even had a tornado. The winds were so strong, that it just anhihilated my patio furniture. The sirens went off, the kids were outside walking the dog when the sirens went off...It turned a really funny orangish color outside and we had some pretty strong winds and hail. We ran in the basement and I thought the windows were going to break. You literally felt the house shaking.... Jaree was hysterical! It lasted for like 45 minutes and then it stopped. Later that night we had more thunderstorms so it was horrible. The power was out for like 8 hours...It was hot and miserable....

Dh celebrated his 33rd birthday on Friday. We went out to Pappadeux's and ate ourselves into an OBLIVION.

He has been on vacation, so he has been keeping me occupied. Instert develish grin! LOL

Yesterday, we had a carbon monoxide scare.. I was cooking and the CO detector went off. REplaced batteries it kept going off. Called the fire dept and we had to evacuate, because the levels were 50. We had to evacacuate until Nicor Gas arrived. When they arrived the levels were 0. I guess it was from cooking. We were taking no chances. The kids were sleepy because we were out of the house until 12 midnight. Talk about a crazy vacation dh has had.....LOL

How are all you doing???

HOpe all is well

Until next time

When it rains it pours .....literally..

I am beginning to feel like NOAH...LOL
Wow, we have been getting drenched here in the Midwest. Nothing but rain! It's raining and cool here in Chicago.

What is it about rain that makes you sleepy....I didn't get up until almost 2pm today. I immediately got up cleaned the kitchen, took dinner out, and started laundry. I cannot believe I slept this late.

Bonnie and Clyde start school in 2 DAYS. I am going to miss my babies. Tommorrow I am going to braid Jaree's hair and we are going to go to HOllywood Park. Can't believe their Summer is over. We had some good times. Six Flags, Waterparks, beach, zoo.....we had a blast. Now it's back on the grind.

A lot of parents are glad for their kids to start school, but I must admit I am a little sad. I am going to miss them during the day. I love my kids sooooo much, they are my world. I cannot even fathom what my life would be like without them...
Don't get me wrong, some days they work my LAST NERVE, but I love them to bits!

Wednesday I will be a little misty, but I will get over it....LOL

Until next time

I love this song....

I so love this song!

Here are the lyrics:
I was told the true definition of a man was to never cry
Work till you tired yeah got to provide yeah
Always be the rock for my fam, protect them by all means
(and give you the things that you need, baby)
Our relationship is suffering trying to give you - what I never had
You say I don’t know to love you baby
Well I say show me the way
I keep my feelings - deep inside I
Shadow them - with my pride eye
I’m trying desperately baby just work with me

Teach me how to love
Show me the way to surrender my heart, girl I’m so lost
Teach me how to love
How I can get my emotions involved
Teach me, show me how to love
Show me the way to surrender my heart, girl I’m lost
Teach me how to love
How I can get my emotions involved
Teach me, how to love

I was always taught to be strong
never let them think you care at all
Let know one get close to me
Before you and me
I den’ shared things wit chu girl about my past
That I’d never tell to anyone else - no
Just keep it to myself, - yes
Now I know I lack affection and expressing my feelings
It took me a minute to come and admit this but
See I’m really try’na - change now
Wanna love you better, - show me how
I’m tryin desperately baby hey

Teach me how to love
Show me the way to surrender my heart, girl I’m so lost
Teach me how to love
How I can get my emotions involved
Teach me, show me how to love
Show me the way to surrender my heart, girl I’m so lost
Teach me how to love
How I can get my emotions involved
Teach me, how love

Ain’t nobody ever took the time to try to teach me what - love was but you
And I ain’t never trust anyone enough to let em tell me - what to do
Teach me how to show it and show me how to love you baby
(Teach me please just show me yeah)
Cause I’m willing
To let go of my fears girl I’m serious
About all that I’ve said
Girl I wanna love you with all my heart
Baby show me where to start

Teach me how to love
Show me the way to surrender my heart, girl I’m so lost
Teach me how to love
How I can get my emotions involved
Teach me, show me how to love
Show me the way to surrender my heart, girl I’m so lost
Teach me how to love
How I can get my emotions involved
Teach me, how love

Girl just teach me how to love you better
You know I wanna love you better girl

Crazy car, crazy husband, and crazy son makes Dana very crazy...

Well that was a crazy title.....LOL

First off, My oldest started school yesterday. Can you believe he is a Sophmore? That's one down and 2 more to go...LOL Anyways, I took him shopping yesterday, and he didn't see a thing he liked. We went to three different store, A J Wright, Burlington Coat Factory, and Value City. I was so mad I could spit. But that wasn't the worst of it. Earlier that day, I had picked Bee up from school. He started walking towards the car with his best friend NIcK, Nick rides the bus, so that means Nick missed his bus and guess who they want to drive him home.....ME. ON the way to NIcks house, I hit a pothole, flatten my tire and bend the rim. You know I was mad, because I really didn't want to take Nick home anyway, and in the process I get a flat tire. I go to the neighbors to use the air compressor, that is when I find out I messed up the rim. Now I am livid. I try to start the car to check the time, I am turning the key but nothing happens, not even a sound.

I was home all day cleaning, so I hadn't even had a chance to shower, so I felt so nasty. I had to go in Nick house to use the phone. His mom and mY friend Denise insists I stay inside with her. I told her Denise, i have been cleaning all day and I haven't even showered, and she says well that makes two of, I have been cleaning all day and haven't showered either. I call Dh, who acted a COMPLETE ASS! I won't even go all into it, but he pissed me off so bad, that I am put him ON MUTE ALL DAY TODAY AND YESTERDAY.... Make a long story short, he just dropped the tire off and told BEE to fix it. Bee has never fixed a tire in his life, luckily Ed Denise's neighbor came out and taught the boys how to fix a tire. Nick jacked the car up and Bee removed the tire and put the new tire on, and Ed refused to let the boys tighten the lug nuts. Denise and I did have a good time chatting!

Luckily the car starts, by this time its 6 oclock. The kids are starving and I have a dead lizard in the car that the flies want! I took the Lizard to the store to get a new one, took the kids to Taco Bell, came home to drop the lizard off, and car won't start again... I go inside for awhile comeback to the car and it starts, took a chance to take Bee shopping and we go to Value City and the plan was to leave the car running....but I am so used to taking the keys out of the ignition that I turned the car off, got out of value city and guess what? Car won't start. I figured it just needed some time, so we walked across to Burlington and Aj Wright and come back an hour later, CAR STILL WON'T START. I didn't even want to call Baptiste, but after almost an hour and half, I had called him and you guessed he turned into the ASSINATOR.....the kids were thirsty, so I gave them money to walk to Dominicks which was one lot over.....I just put my hands on the steerring wheel and BAWLED! I decided to give the car one last try and it STARTED! GRABBED THE KIDS, called dh and hoppend on the e-way came home. Got home took the key out, had my neighbor who is a mechanic come and look at it and the car starts back up. It wasn't doing it anymore. Went to the car to take Bee to school this morning and it started. I don't know if I knocked something loose or what, but its been working fine. I am still going to get it looked at.

but that was my wild and crazy day yesterday!

Hope I get a better start today......LOL

Irrational fear....

Or phobias if you will.... Do you have any? For as long as I can remember, I have had a fear of Clowns. I think the movie IT sealed the deal for me, but long before it was out, I never ever warmed up to clowns. I always kept my distance. I was never one to associate clowns as being fun or funny. They just plain creep me out. Look at the history of clowns, John Wayne Gacy used to dress up as a clown, in the movie Halloween, Michael Myers killed his sister wearing a clown uniform, the movie it..So many bad things have been asssociated with clowns. Let's not forget poor Robbie on Poltergeist, the boy was pulled under the bed and strangled and attacked by a clown....LOL

I also fear porcelain dolls and ventriliquist dummies. The movie Dead Silence just sealed the deal for both of those things.....LOL

I also have a fear of something bad happening to my children, I think that's every mother's worst nightmare.

What are some of your fears....

My mom has a extreme phobia of SNAKES, she won't even look at them on television.....LOL

I can look at clowns but I will run away if one comes near.....LOL

This movie still creeps me out......

I am a total horror movie fan, but this movie gives me the creeps to this day. Especially the part when the little girl opens his makeshift tent and throws up everywhere. Hey, did you know that little girl was none other than Mischa Barton formely of the OC. I don't know why I watch horror movies, they always give me nightmares......LOL

After months of being out of commission, Dell finally helped me fix my NOTEBOOK. I had been using dh's macbook, and he wasn't always willing to share....LOL So I had to get if fixed. I was on the phone 3 hours trying to figure out what was going on with my computer. My wireless network was not working.... They had me do a gazillion things trying to trouble shoot and I got so mad..... Also every one who works for Dell Technical Support, can hardly speak ENGLISH....so I found myself saying "I'm sorry can you repeat that"....until finally I blew a gasket, called back and talked to someone who spoke English CLEARLY....How the hell are you going to let someone work for you that deals with primarily customers in the US, not speak CLEAR English? By this time I am LIVID....

Finally, I get someone who speaks English and helps me fix the problem partially. You did get the PARTIALLY PART RIGHT?

He did get the wireless network connected, but it still was not connecting to the internet, kept getting an error message....after about 25 minutes, both the technichian and I threw in the towel....we were OBVIOUSLY DEFEATED right? He gave me the "CONTACT YOUR INTERNET PROVIDER".

What in the world could Comcast do to fix the problem. It was an internal error, which finally was fixed, but now we had problems with the router.....

So what did I do?

A. Did I slam the computer against the wall and scream like a crazy lady?
B. Did I call Comcast and ask them questions, for which I know they had no answers?
or C. Did I calm myself down with a nice glass of lemonade, take a walk, come back home and try one last idea...

Well, if you picked A, you are not far off, because I came really close to throwing the computer against the wall and screaming like a crazy lady, however I thought C would be more beneficial to me. I decided that I would reset both the modem and router and turn the computers off. I turned them back on and EUREKA.....my computer if fixed. See what you can do when you put your mind to it....LOL

I was stressing over this stupid computer and finally I got it fixed!

So what's been going on with me, nothing much. Just trying to get these kids in order for school Bee starts next week and Jariel and Jaree start in 2 weeks. Time seemed to fly by.....Can't believe summer is almost over....makes me want to cry!!!

We have been getting a lot of storms here too. WE even had a tornado warning today, luckily it all blew over! The kids were little troopers, they were showing me where we could go if a tornado was to come. Ms. Jaree even showed me how to protect my head.....These kids are too flippin smart.

WEll, I am sleepy as all get out, had to get up early to go register Bee for school now I am dog tired....

Until next time
