I'm cool, I'm really cool!

Yesterday, my teenager told me that I am awesome, hilarious and way cool for a mom. I was floored! We were joking around and she said that we should never ever fight. Huh? Where is this coming from? She is a teenager and she is acting this way? What gives?

Does this make me weird?

I went to visit my table yesterday. lol. I love this thing! I made a payment too and will have it soon...but still need to wait for hubby to finish the kitchen so I can move the kitchen table from the dining room and bring in this new baby. New stuff makes me freakishly happy. A blog entry about a, thats not weird. Is it?

One of my many New Years Resolutions was to declutter my house and finally get rid of some of the junk I've been holding on to. Wow! How on earth did I accumulate this much crap??? I have enough in my house to fully furnish 2 more houses! I know I gave away several garbage bags of the kids clothes in Sept. so why do I have so much more? Did they really grow that much? I'm doing it room by room but just thinking about some of the other rooms that I need to tackle...the worst making me feel totally overwhelmed. Will I ever be clutter free?
I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair...

My new favorite song! Thanks for bringing it to my attention Karen. I love this and havent been able to get it out of my head since I first heard it. Love the beat and the sexy black guy in the background. =o)

Another death

On New Years eve, a 14 year old boy who lived just down the street from us, was killed. Everyone in Emma's school was upset...there were grief councellors, an early closing for the funeral and a memorial service for those who couldnt attend. Last night, another 14 year old boy in her school died. He choked to death on his food. It breaks my heart when someone so young dies. Hugging my kids a little closer now.

My New New Years Resolution

In the year 2007 I resolve to:
Dedicate my life to making someone else's horribly miserable.

Get your resolution here.

A scientific study

You need to have your sound on for this. Very interesting stuff.

Count your blessings

Today is one of those days that really make you stop and thank God for what you have. I spoke to a young woman who lost her husband on Friday and found out today that she is pregnant: A mom whose hiv+ child now has full blown aids. A local boy died last night, his young body fished out of a pond this morning. He was only 15 years old. Another boy, 17 years old, has been missing for over a month and it kills me to think what his family must be going through right now.
My kids are happy, healthy and warm. I know where all three are right now and I cant wait for this shift to be over so I can go home and hug them, a little tighter maybe, but I need that today.
