The Itsy Bitsy Spider

I mentioned yesterday that our air conditioner had gone out. Well, a repair man came last night and found that we had a spider in" something other ", that was blocking the air-flow. He got the spider out and within an hour, our a/c was doing what it was supposed to do! We had to pay for the service call, but he said he could not charge us for removing a spider. We are soooooo thankful that this was all it was.
This is not the spider! Ha! This is Emily's ring.

Sarah Kate is looking at the t.v., pointing and saying,"I want that!" They say that about EVERY toy commercial they see these days.

Oh my! I thought that spider was the real one. Yucky:) Very glad that thing wasn't alive and on your couch! Love your girls' bows, as always!

I am so glad you put that little disclaimer in there because I seriously thought you were going to say they removed a plastic spider ring from the air conditioner, haha!!!!

I remember wanting everything on TV toy commercial AND circling every "girly" toy in the JC Penneys and Sears Christmas catalogs.....don't show them those for about 10-12 yrs. Wonder if they have them anymore? LOL

Seriously?! A spider made the AC stop working?! How crazy is that! SK looks really tall to me in these photos- I know, she's sitting in each one.
Toy commercials should be outlawed! HA!

A coworkers kids said "Mommy I want that!".... it was a Tampax commercial! Ha ha.

And there is very little math & chemistry to being a nurse! It's the whole 'can't get a grade lower than a 75' part that is really stressful!

I read your blog all the time and think you are too funny. I actually saw your daughters name Sarah Kate, and fell in love with the name and named our third child, Sarah Kate. I have a Sophie who is around your SK's age.
Anyways my kids are doing that too with the commercials. My son will come running to me and tell me what latest cleaning device I need, or whatever.
Have a good weekend and we all enjoy your blog!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
