I am ready to leave them all for a week. Let them see how I cater to them. I am tired of being the only one that can come up with an idea for dinner. Only to have it shot down like an enemy plane. I am tired of not being able to make what I want to for dinner. Because this one doesn't like it and that one doesn't FEEL like having it and the other one had it for lunch.
I am ready to take care of myself. I am ready to take responsibility for my actions. And only mine. I am ready to only worry about getting myself out the door. I am ready to take only what I will need for the day. I am ready to cut only my meat at mealtime.
I will be a better mother when I return from my vacation. I will be ready to cater to them again.
But for now, I NEED to pamper myself. I am getting the fake nails. I am taking 3 bathing suits. I am going to shop this week for another cute outfit. Even if I have enough clothes as it is. I just want something new to wear. Heck, I may go wild and get two new outfits. And shoes. Gotta get new shoes. So I need the pedicure too. And better see if Robby can fit me in for a hair appt.
Sorry if I sounded whiney just now. I am normally not a whiney person. I will stop now.

Except for WALMART. I took the girls there at 8am to get another mouse. DD2 and DD3 have been fighting over the disco mouse that DD2 got for Christmas. And DD3 didn't have one at all. Santa really didn't think this one out. We also got Igor, City of Ember and a Wii game. The girls are all watching Igor. So, I am typing this from my daughter Melissa's netbook. The home computer s#cks. I have given up on using it. I have ordered a beautiful laptop from HP. It should ship by January 27. I LOVE this little acer ASPIRE ONE, but it just doesn't have enough power for me. Plus my hands get cramped after a few minutes of typing on this little keyboard. But, it is better than that piece of junk sitting in the computer cabinet.
Anyway, my new computer will have 3G to think with and 250G to store things and run other programs. It's a 14 inch little beauty. Onyx. Bluetooth. Okay, I have to stop, cuz that's all I know. I got it for a pretty good price. $686 after taxes. Free shipping. The price was so good, that I ordered myself an iTouch too. I ordered both of these awesome little toys on Friday of last week. The iTouch showed up yesterday. I am so kicking myself for not getting one sooner. I am loving my little toy. And I haven't even tapped into it's potential. I am so thrilled that I have it for my Cruise in a couple of weeks.
Oh, did I forget to mention that I am going on a cruise the first week of February. Danny refuses to go on a cruise with me. My girlfriend Stephanie presented an opportunity to go on one, and I jumped. I am SO EXCITED. We are flying into Orlando and the ship sails out of Port Canaveral. She is flying in on Saturday. Me on Sunday. We will stay with her son, Marc, and his wife Sunday night. The cruise leaves Monday and returns to Port Friday after taking us to the BAHAMAS. If I like the island, I am going to try to convince Danny to go with me via airplane.
More later. Gotta see what is going on with the girls...

The Marie Antoinette - A Real Person, A Real Award!
WOW. I was given an award. I am so honored. I really don't think I am a special blogger. I'm not. I just get on here and chatter. Mostly boring stuff. But I feel like getting things out there. No rhyme or reason to it. Any how, I was so very surprised by Lisa passing this along to me. Thank you Lisa. You really should go visit her.
Now for the acceptance part.
There are 5 simple rules -
1. Post the logo on your blog (above pic of Marie Antionette herself)
2. Post a link to the person’s blog from whom you received the award (thanks, Lisa!),
3. Nominate at least 7 or more blogs (see below listing)
4. Link to the blogs you’ve nominated, and
5. Post a comment on those blogs to tell them of their nomination! Simple!
(These are in no particular order.)
Rosemary @ Free Advice, Worth Every PennyJana @ Just Jana
Karen @ A Little Bit of That
You can count right. I just didn't nominate the full 7. Bad me. But, that's me.

inner peace. Dr Phil proclaimed, "The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the
things you have started and have never finished. "
So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of White Zinfandel, a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream, a package of Oreos, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos and a box of chocolates .
You have no idea how freaking good I feel right now.
Thought it was too good to not share.

Below is a blank week just waiting to happen.
They are simply shadow boxes that I disassembled. I covered the back with UHU glue and Making Memories papers. Then added a piece of ribbon to split the backgroud. Added some dimensional stickers to create a bit of a scene. The words JOY and PEACE are Autumn Leaf rub-ons applied to the outside of the glass. To finish them off, I put some little ornaments as shakers inside the frame.

(Melissa's pictures will show up. I took them during the day. My computer is bad. Won't listen to me - much like my children.)
