Happy Birthday Shannon!

It is my dear sweet and like oldest friend Shannon's Birthday. I have been thinking about her all day and remembering so many things about her and things we have done together.
We have shared so much over the last 16 years.
lots of walking
speeding home to make sure you got there on time
Almost jumping out of bedroom windows,
fruit loop sandwiches (potato chip ones too!)
Droping pennies on peoples heads through holes in floors,
breakups with boyfriends
getting married
baby showers
having kids
having more kids
phone calls in the middle of the afternoon to insure that one of the above mentioned kids survives the day.
I love my friend Shannon and know that our friendship will last into the eternities, so today I will wish her a Happy Birthday and a year better than the last!!

I truly believe that some friendships will last into the eternities and ours is one of them.

Ode to a Gal Bladder

It has been a while since a post, and I wanted to write some extremely clever post, to let you know I had my gall bladder out. While laying in bed I have come up with some clever rhymes but alas as I have fallen asleep they have left my mind. So update, the attacks that I was having that we thought were kidney stones, weren't they were gal stones. I had sugery on Monday to have it out. While it is a laproscopic surgery, it is still very painful surgery. I won't gross you out with the gory details of my four incisions and so forth. But I am healing well and hope to be back to normal activities in a few more days. Thanks to those who have called or come by and brought dinner. A very big THANK YOU to those who have helped out with the kids!!

Tag You're it!

Ruthanne tagged me so here goes.
6 Quirky things about me.

1 I always correct people if they say "SHER BERT", there is only one r it is "SHERBET"!!

2- If I'm talking to you and your glasses are crooked I am mentally adjusting them in my head, and sometimes I will ask you if I can fix them because it drives me crazy.

3- I love to pop peoples toes. Lance HATES this and gets cranky when I try to pop his.

4- When I go to girls camp I morph into my alter ego "Camp Cari", Lance is afraid of her and is glad she only comes out once a year and he is not there to witness it.

5- You can give me just about any topic and I could sing you a song somehow related to it.

6- I am a very disorganized person, if you have seen my living room you know this. However my beads have to be organized according to color. Having them disorganized totally bugs!!

I'm sure there are so many quirks that I have that I'm not aware of or can't think of right now, so if you can think of one please feel free to comment.

I tag:
Shannon, Nadja, Lisa, and Kristi

The Girls Get a Turn

Every night we brush and floss the girls teeth. On this particular night they were having issues and didn't want Lance to do it. Lance talked them into it with a promise that they could floss his teeth. Now every night they request it again!!
