well what can i say. i know some of you have started to read this silly little blog of mine, so i thought i would take the opportunity to say to you all THANK YOU. thank you thank you thank you. never in my wildest dreams did i think possible that you could already outdo yourselves in taking care for my family. everything from calling to making sure i'm okay, to waking up to the sounds of a tractor fixing my broken pipe, to looking out my window and seeing yet another tractor clearing off my driveway of the pesky white stuff...today you proved me wrong. to my surprise i opened the door not once but twice to wonderful ladies of the community (a sheriff included...yeah we're that cool) with their arms full to the brim with presents for my little ones (AND SOME FOR ME TOO!) to give you a little perspective, i wrapped up our presents that i went out and bought in white...YEAH, do you SEE any white in there? oh it's peppered in there but it's drowned in a sea of wonderful gifts donated by you guys to my family. so yes thank you for making up for someone not being here. *blubbery mess*
and GI Joe husband, the community also sent out a huge package of necessities for you and the guys overseas, as well as letters written by all the elementary school children, well all except nate's class. no, i got those wonderful letters here waiting for you when you come home to us. so to all of you out there in big cities and not out in the middle of nowhere, i'm really sorry you don't know these people, they have got to be hiding their wings and halo's somehow, because i'm pretty sure that's what they are. dog gone it, i really need to invest in water proof makeup.

GI joe husband took it upon himself to buy me a sewing machine. yes, you read it right. HE bought ME a sewing machine. GI joe husband loves to research (that's why he went and got himself a PhD. so he could one day teach at a university and do research), so when i told him what my next requirements for a sewing machine would be(never ever EVER thinking that i would get something even close to it), and what brand i wanted....he started to research and well guess what he found...an even better sewing machine than what i would of bought for myself. for half the cost of what it originally cost. with perks and a lot of equipment i don't even know what any of it does yet.

so i went to go see something again....
remember my disappointment in the twilight movie? well i re-read twilight, and decided i may of been too harsh on the movie the first time. so when it came to my little town, i rounded up the troops. let me tell you there is nothing funnier than 6 women climbing out of a minivan all jazzed up about teenage vampires. what was the outcome? i loved it the second time around. because i already knew it wasn't the book. still cheesy, yes...but edward made it all okay because the eye candy was delish. i may of even been heard to say "i want to have edward's babies!" yeah, i have good friends that just laugh at me and my stupidities. favorite part in the movie: when bella is washing her truck and edward is looking oh so fine leaning up against it with his hair all messed up and his blue puffy jacket. i'm going to go buy GI joe a jacket that looks just like that and i'm going to make him grow out his hair like that. meow... what only 50 somewhat days left! ahahaha! pretty sure i'm going to hear about this one later on. does anyone know how long till the dvd comes out?
