It has been... several months since I have even thought about this blog. Oops.

So much has happened since the last entry... but unfortunately tonight is not the night to go into detail.

Maybe tomorrow.

Today, or well yesterday being December 1, my son is officially 6 years old going on 30. Where did the time go? Seriously?!?!

Boulders baby!

My sister, Brandy, complains that I do not blog enough. Of course she doesn't have 2 children small enough to still need their butts whipped from time to time and boogers removed from their noses. I will blog when I have the time, like now at work since we are beyond slow.

This past Sunday, we had my daughters ears pierced while we were out browsing for a new car. She did great! I honestly thought she would throw a fit and refuse to have the 2ND one done... she has the quite the attitude for only being a couple days shy of 9 months, but she did awesome and she is even more cuter [is that a word?] than ever, which I never thought was possible. Her daddy says she doesn't have rocks in her ears, that she has boulders! They kinda do look big on her in person, but in pictures they look nice and small.

See for yourself:

Speaking of how cute she is... we were at my dad's house on Thursday and my son, who is 5, was telling my sister Brandy, that he used to be cute when he was a little baby... but *dramatic pause* he got weird. Seriously funny stuff! Ask Brandy about him wanting a soda from Sonic. LOL! Kids really do say the darnedest things. He is 5 going on 18 and knows it all. He has the best memory to be so young too. He likes those memory card games and can give me directions to someones house we have been to. Remembers things from when he was younger than 2 and things he hears. It is amazing.

The school sent me a letter home saying they are concerned about him being over weight. He is 48 lbs and around 4 ft tall. You can seriously see his ribcage, so how they have him as being over weight I have no idea. He is super tall for his age and his weight is distributed like it should be. But, if they were to see my beefy girl... they would say she was headed for obesity. She is almost 9 months, 19.5 lbs, and 29 inches long. Big girl!

One last thing, before I forget. That lovely sister of mine was participating in Theme Week with a few of her bloggy buddies. She used me for her What The __ ? Wednesday. She thought she was funny... but now it's her turn [:

More to come...

My eldest sister, Brandy, is my reason for resurrecting my writing. As I type this she is trying to walk me through editing things and what not... and boy oh boy am I way out of the loop!

Good thing I have just about 8 hours ahead of me to do nothing at work. Time to read up on tutorials.

.3gp Format

.3GP... 3rd generation platform/phone. That is the format of most videos from cellular phones. I have a Razor v3m and was not able to play videos with sound for the longest time. I tried converting and different players, yet it never occurred to me to try QuickTime. Well, for whatever reason I had downloaded it a couple months back, just transferred a video from my phone in hopes of having it play because I didn't need the sound this time and the default player is, QuickTime. So surprised!

The video I wanted to show was of the snow, because I oh so love it! I really do not want to drive in the morning after the incident I had today. I need to move some where that does not have snowy days.

This is what I see on the security camera at work, about 20 minutes ago.

And because I figured out how to play these videos now and Blogger allows .3GP uploads, here are couple other videos off of my cell.

Those were taken on May 25, 2008. We were at the club and these 2 guys were glow sticking. Awesome stuff!

As the previous post stated, I do not like the snow at all.

This is why...

That's my car, on 3 wheels over an embankment on the side of the river. Five feet in front of me on the left is my street. I was braking to turn left, I slid and that was the end result. I panicked called the police. They arrived and helped me out of the car. Fire Department showed up to direct traffic and a wrecker was called.

Now, remember 5 feet in front of me is my street. I am literally a minute from my home. The wrecker, pulled my car out and the man told me in order to get my car back, I would need to provide $145. If I did not have it then, which I did not, then he was taking my vehicle to his shop and I could pick it up there. So, not only did I end up walking up the hill home, I had to find a way to get my car.

I got it out. Thanks to my sister and her husband. The wrecker company employees were rude. When my brother in law was trying to figure out how much it was, they basically were beating around the bush stating that it was a contract they have with the police department for a flat rate fee. Highway robbery!
