Quick update.

Just a quick note to let ya'all know that I have'nt dropped off the face of the earth. I was busy with the Dolphin Auction, then the move then the trip out to Idaho to see my daugher and her family. I got home a couple of weeks ago and had to do a 3 day course of Compass. So know it is back to the old grind of putting the rest of my house together and getting caught up with my blogs. I promise I will have pics and stories soon. Hope everyone is well.

Kasper life.

We have made it through the Dolphin Auction for yet another year! My afghan went for $71.00 I think, I haven't heard the official word yet. As for the Beverage Committee we did a great job. The new stadium cups went over well, we still have some left but hey can use them next year. My people did a great job and the night for us went off without a hitch. I had injured my leg the Tuesday before the auction so I wasn't able to walk the floor and sell tickets so Fred (AKA Miss Hope's ...The Man) proudly wore the ticket apron and kicked some butt and sold a lot of tickets. Just to let you know it wasn't a sissy apron it was a apron from one of the hardware stores so he didn't look funny. I do wish we would have gotten a pic of that though.

So now that the auction is over it is time to focus on the move. I started to pack on Monday, Carla was on IM's with me and said that she would come and help me start packing my PartyLite stuff. That was really the only stuff that I had planned on doing that day. Well Carla came over and so did Miss Hope to help a sister out. We got the PL stuff knocked out quite quick, and we took a little rest. Carla was saying to me don't you have any other boxes she was as cagey as a cat on a hot tin roof, wanting to get stuff done! I was joking with Greg and told him that if I would have had the boxes that Carla would have had me all packed up that day LOL. Since I didn't have boxes it was decided that I need to take down all the curtains and wall stuff. So we got all of that done and I had started to wash the curtains and at least get the stuff that we had taken down off the walls put into a pile in the living room. Later that night I was sitting in bed waiting for Greg to shut off the lights so we could relax and watch some TV before going to sleep. He just stood there at the foot of the bed looking at the wall behind the bed and was looking right confused.... all that was left was the picture left hanging on the wall. After a few seconds of him looking right pitiful I asked him ..... "You are trying to remember what was hanging on the wall for the last 3 years huh"... He just shook his head and gave a bit of a laugh and said " Yes, I cant remember what was there I assume some PartyLite stuff though". Now that is why I could buy stuff and he wouldn't know if I had bought it yesterday or 5 years ago! It could work to my advantage in the near future. The packing is coming along ok, I'm doing a little bit at a time so I don't just burn the house down and collect the ins. money and go shopping for new stuff. Well it is off to get some more packing done. Take care all.

A Big Thanks to my Gals.

I'm sitting here having my morning coffee and trying to plan out my day, week and rest of the month. I realized that the month of March is almost 1/2 over! Where did it go. I guess I have been so busy with the Dolphin Auction, medical and dental appointments and moving into a new home. The Dolphin Auction is this weekend and I'm so excited to see what my afghan will bring in. If it does well enough maybe it will be a tradition for me and I will make one every year for the auction. As far as my committee we are doing real good. I think we are in top form and will do well on Saturday. I have the best friends who have been volunteered ( more like begged by me) to help with the tickets ect. That is what good friends are for, they will do something that they themselves would rather not do, just because it is something you want to try and see if you can do it.

I want to give a bit SHOUT OUT to my peeps, Miss Hope... not once has this woman complained when I have called her rambling about the cups, tickets, what supplies I still need to get and does she think that the schedule that I have done is ok. She just listens to me go off on a tanget and then says to me " sounds like you have it all under control".

Then there is Jordy, she is the computer excel spreed sheet queen, she loves to do the organizing on the computer... me I would just write it down because those darn programs wont do what I want them to do, or maybe it is me. And I cant understand computer speak LOL.

Then there is Kerry she got dragged into this last minute when I went up to her and asked her if she was going to be busy the night of the Auction. She said nope what do you need me to do. It is so great to have friends to back you up when you may get in a bit over your head. Good friends like mine are hard to find....so when you find a good friend like that cherish them. Just remember you cant have MINE lol ( ok I know some of you had Hope, Kerry and Jordy before me and that's ok).

But the rest of ya keep ur mitts off. Just kidding they are the best friends a gal could have and I love all of you mucho.

What a DAY!

From my week starting off with a sick youngin to moving into a new house in just over 4 weeks, things sure do move at lightning speed when the moment so hits! My hubby called me last night saying there is this perfect 4 bdrm house with a nice kitchen and a fire place and a real nice front yard. I'm trying to find out which one is the Lemon Tree

Now I'm all about my yard, I love to do yard work and make pretty things grow. And to top it off to have my hubby so excited that he made a appointment this morning to see the house! So sick youngin in tow we went to see this house. It is absolutely beautiful. Front Yard
It sits on a Acre of land and you can see the marsh from the front porch. Oh the front porch it is a full porch complete with a swing!! Now I'm in the south!! I will have a tangerine tree, Apple tree and a lemon tree ( when it matures the current owner cut it down not knowing what it was lol) The current owner had put a lot of time and money into the landscaping. The front with the edging has lighting in it. There is a little play yard ,swing,slide thingy out front too. The front drive could hold at least 6 to 8 cars easy!! The front living room has a fireplace ( I so love a fire place) I love the kitchen they are leaving the china cabinet cuz the stupid people that wallpapered the kitchen( not the current owners) didn't do all of it and left a blank wall. Kitchen / Dining Room and the Florida Room
Dining Room/ Florida Keys Room
There is also a "sun room" I call it my Florida Keys room, (that is another post later). Florida Keys Room

They have a deck off the Florida Keys room.

One of the bedrooms is about a 17x22 that is what the 2 little girls are gonna share for now. There is also 2 bathrooms.
1/2 the size of the girls room
I'm really excited and cant wait. Now to get purging :) I guess I'm a gonna start boxing up stuff a little bit at a time. Here are some of the pics that I took today.
Master Bedroom
Well that is all the pic I have at the moment. I will post more if I'm able to get them.

It's got to get Better

Well where to start. My week started off a little bit busy but as you can read down below it went down hill fast and furious. My youngest who got sick on Tuesday and was taken to the ER on Thursday, is still going to stay home yet another day today. Poor little thing she has what ever crud that is going around. But when she gets sick she really gets sick. She was even nice enough to give a little to her momma. I was sick and throwing up on Friday ( the day I was to go out with my girlfriends). She hasn't been running a fever but she isn't drinking much and as for the eating, she started asking for something to eat late yesterday. She only weighs 40lbs. soaking wet so she cant afford to lose any weight. We are keeping her home today and I'm going to try and get her into the clinic to be on the safe side and get her checked again. I just figure that by Saturday she should have been up and eating and at least feeling better but she still slept most of the day away. Thank God that Greg was able to stay home and take care of Kaylee while I wasn't feeling my best.

After I got home from the ER on Friday my oldest daughter Ashley calls me in a frantic voice... mumbling something about trying to get home on the back road because the main road was closed and almost running off the road, boy was she in a dither. When I finally go her to calm down and she was telling me the story she said that she was trying to go the back way home because she didn't want to spend the night in Idaho Falls, so she decided to take a back way home and it was a snowing and blowing. She said that she was only going about 20 and she started to slide sideways and she was afraid that she was going to run off the road. She had all 3 kids in the van with her. She had called me to help her calm down... I ask her if her and the kids were ok she said yes then she said mumbled something about Brenden ( he is 3). I said is he ok she said in a very sarcastic voice OH YEAH he is ok. When she was sliding down the road sideways and freaking out Brenden was in the back of the car yelling "COOKIES" I just had to laugh she wasn't to impressed. So I said I guess his daddy takes him out flippin cookies huh ... she said yeah I guess so and then proceeded to call him a name or two. She didn't thin it was to funny but that made my night a bit better. I only have about 6 weeks before I leave for Idaho they had best get ALL that snow gone or I'm not gettin off the plane. I'm not prepared for cold weather. I have turned into a sissy over the last few years.

I have never meant that statement so much in my life as today. My week started off like any other week, full of things to do. As I posted earlier in the week my youngest Kaylee had a dentist appt. on Tuesday. After the appt. we went out to lunch just her and I. It was a wonderful ending to a wonderful day. Well I think I had spoke to soon. She started feelin a bit sick later that night. The next morning I got up to get everybody else up and ready for school, when who should appear by herself and draggin her blanket but Kaylee. She said she didn't feel good. When I went to see what was wrong she started throwing up. Oh the joys of motherhood. So I get her fixed and proceed to go and get her brother up...as I'm going into the livening room on the other side of the house I'm stepping in little puddles all over the floor. NO WE DON'T HAVE A PET, it was from Kaylee getting sick throughout the night. When asked she just said that she didn't want to wake us up! OH Dear Lord, wake me up please..... so I proceeded to do the first of 4 loads of laundry that didn't make it through the night. Her futon mattress didn't make it either ( we have been looking into a new bed for her). So I told the hubby to just fold it up and take it to the trash. So that started my Wednesday with a sick baby and yet another Dentist appt to get to. Lucky for me Greg was on the 3-11 shift and was able to take Sean to his appt. Kaylee was sick all day on Wed... but started feeling better later that evening and by morning VIOLA she was feeling even better, I kept her home on Thursday so she could get some rest. Well by 1:30 yesterday it all started again she was throwing up about every 20min. or so. Well not wanting to go through this for yet another day I took Kaylee in to the ER last night at 6:00 p.m. and we got out of there around 9:00 p.m. She has what everybody else has had it is a stomach bug that kicks ur butt. So lucky Kaylee got some booty medicine to help her quit throwing up. She slept through the night but will be home today though. I sure hope I'm no the down hill slide on this one and no one else in the house gets the crud.

Now for my personal Thursday! Me and Miss Hope have this deal going on that The Man takes the girls to school and I pick them up. Well on Thursdays I only need to pick up Kaylee because Alexis and Makenna have Chorus. Well me being the person of habit that I am went to get Kaylee from school yesterday like every Thursday..... waited in line for about 20 min. got up to the front they call my number and no girls...I thought what the heck. Then when the lady was trying to tell me that the girls weren't there we both figured out it was Chorus and I ALREADY had Kaylee at home!! And to top it off I had gone to a PC party a few weeks ago and then to a Adult party the other night. The gal from the Adult party had called the other day and had said that she would call back on Thursday. Well the lady from the PC party called instead and I .... thinking this was the Adult party consultant was running around trying to find my list of goodies to buy. As I got back to the phone and was complaining that I could find the books ect. she said that she had just finished up closing our friends Kerry's party and wanted to see when I wanted to hold mine. I thought to myself OMG I almost gave the PC lady my order for the Adult Party!!
So I kept my composure and finished up with the PC lady and got off the phone before I said something stupid. I don't know who had control of my brain yesterday but I hope they got it back to me last night. I cant go through another day like yesterday!

On to last night when I was getting ready for bed... I was hanging up the new shirts that I had gotten at the going out of business sale that Miss Hope talked about. Well I got a pink one and one with red white and blue stripes, they are small stripes so it is a bit busy. Well I have ADHD adn a bit of OCD not bad it is just some things need to be in certiane places. Well I didnt know how much of a monkey wrench a striped multi colored shirt could be to me. I had no color to put the damn thing with, I just stood there looking at my closet and wondering where will this one go. Oh dear lord I just need a vacation.

Just a weird day

My morning yesterday started out like any other. The alarm rings at 6:00 a.m. I get out of bed and wake up Sean, ( he leaves at 6:30). Then I go to the kitchen and start making my coffee. You would think with the super whamadine coffee maker I have I would get it done the night before and set the timer but NO not me. Well I go to make the coffee and the coffee maker is still warm ... this is 6:15 in the morning! Needless to say I was a bit confused. When I went to wake up Brittani I asked her if she had gotten up and made some coffee earlier in the mornin. She looked at me like I had 2 heads.She responded with " Ummm no maybe daddy did it". Well hell I hadn't thought of that, I didn't even look to see if he had came home early and just jumped into bed. So I went to look and he wasn't in bed or even laying on the couch. So I just think it was Bubba.... Bubba is a ghost ( or at least I think it is a ghost) that has moved down stairs to my house since my upstairs neighbors has moved over a year ago. He doesn't do much except open my front door a few times a day. Greg said it was the air conditioning turning on but I pay attention and it opens up even if the air is off. Miss Hope can attest to this. She has been at my house when he opens up the door. So now he has moved to turning on my coffee pot, now if I can only teach him to make the coffee I would be great. After my kids came home Alexis was doing dishes and had forgot my coffee cup she grabbed it and looked at me and asked me if I was finished with it? I thought well it had been sitting there since morning so yeah I was finished. She said ok.... then it made me think of what had happened that morning, so I asked her why she asked me if I was finished, she said because the coffee was still warm!!! I thought wow this had been the weirdest day in awhile. Well enough of Bubba.

Kaylee my littlest one had a dentist appt. yesterday also. It was a good visit to the dentist. The dental tech said that the only problem she had with Kaylee is that she wouldn't quit talking long enough for the sealants would be able to set. So after the dentist we had a mommy-daughter day. I took Kaylee to Applebees for lunch, she was wonderful. I think it was due to the fact that she had my undivided attention. She had a slider and some fries.. that girl is all about the fries. She did such a good job on lunch I got her a treat.

Ok so maybe a Oreo Cookie Sundae wasn't the best choice but she was really good and that doesn't happen all the time. It was a good day with my baby!

Ya'll have a good hump day!!
