what i should be doing.....

taking off my work clothes and putting on a pair of soft, comfy pjs
grabbing a good book and a blanket and snuggling up to the fire
watching my kids play rock bank...or playing rockband with my kids
putting everyone down for a nap and watching a movie snuggled up to my hubby...again, by the fire
cooking baked potato soup
baking cookies
napping in my warm cozy bed
playing board games with my family
popping corn and making hot chocolate

all these things sound about a billion times better than what i am doing and what is in store for me later. Currently, the temp is 32 outside and dropping. currently it is drizziling rain, that, within the next 2 hours will turn into freezing rain, then ice. currently, i am sitting at work. what is in store for me is.....taking a very long, cold walk to my car. Driving thru the miserable cold, wet, icy dallas traffic....all the way home. Last time it snowed here, it took me two and a half hours to get home from work. This time, I am leaving early, because this time, it is not snow, but ice i will have to deal with....oh yeah, and texas ppl cant drive in ice. I know because i've lived in other places where you must learn to...and texas ppl...well, they dont really have to learn to, because it doesnt happen that often here, so....i am leaving early enough to give myself plenty of time. And something from the above list better be happening when i get home since (as i stomp my foot) it isnt fair that the kids had no school today, but i had to come to work!!!!

So, i will begin today's post by the retelling of our romantic double date with my brother and his wife.

It all started on a wait...frigid Friday night. We loaded up into the car and headed to Tulsa for an all you can eat seafood dinner at one of the casinos ( i know...not so romantic, but very good) Anyway, we had a good time, laughing and talking on the way, and standing in line at the restraunt. We took our time eating and laughing and generally just enjoying each others company, and it was a lovely evening. We moved on, back into the car and were just pulling out of the parking lot when it happened.

My brother popped. as in flatulated. passed gas. Only, it wasnt normal gas. It was way too much seafood gas, and well, apparently it was pretty bad, because, as he laughed and proclaimed how awful it was, he puked. Right into his hand. So, as we rounded the corner, he opened his door and flung the offending vomit off his hand and pulled into the parking lot of a fast food restraunt, hoping to clean up his face....which, was awful. He has a little peach fuzz on his chin and well, i will let you use your imagination on what his face looked like.

So, my hubby hops out of the car...for air, to laugh, to catch his breath. My brother then decides it is funny to kind of chase the hubby around a little, trying to get him to go in and get napkins, and then, it happened. hubby couldnt take it anymore. between the uncontrollable laughter and the vomit chin, he puked. Right between two cars as he is running away. puking and running...always a good combo. So, he ran into the place, grabbed napkins and tossed them on top of the newspaper stand and ran.

I know i am in my 30's. So is the hubby. actually, so is my brother. But, that was one of the funniest things i have ever seen in my life.

The rest of our weekend was great. We visited friends and family, and got to spend the weekend with the daddy/hubby, and have hope for a job here in dallas, so all is looking good! keeping the faith and chin up!

Now, after that story, here are a few pics of my darling baby girl to enjoy!

i am....

a child of the 80's. are you? if you remember the 80's? When I think of music from the 80's, i think of peter cetera....theme song from karate kid (2 i think)....and chicago...reo speedwagon, journey, favorite bands when I was that age....and lately, the song that replays over and over in my head......a little crazy diddy......I WANNA ROCK!

YES....over and over and over. And do you know why? because I cannot stop rocking out on RockBand!!!! Good grief! I am a 35 year old woman for heaven's sake!

Earlier, i told you how we gave the girls their big gift (rockband) early so they would have a chance to play it before all the company came and took over....well, i was correct. We all played! ALOT. the kids, the adults, the adults......the adults! everyone played. grandma, grandpa....everyone. And.I.cant.stop. I love it. I love getting better and better at it...and well, i love going on tour!!! My bil and sil come over and we put the kids to bed and jam!

And, now.....the bil and sil just gave their boys Guitar Hero World Tour for their birthday! Now, we are really in trouble. I mean, I am serious people. If we get together we can play that thing for four hours straight! It is a sickness.

I read a blog earlier today where another woman was also having this problem. And to the woman out their who was bold enough to stand up and admit her addiction...I am here with you.

Hello. My name is Kim, and I am addicted to Rock Band.
