I will be out of touch with 'Blogland' for awhile. We are going up to MO for an early Thanksgiving and Christmas visit. My mom still has dial-up and it's a little difficult for me to even consider using the computer at my in-laws. I will miss all of my fellow bloggers dearly.

100 acres of EVERYTHING!!!!
I'll post some more pics later, but I at least wanted to get this up here!
If anybody wants to come out and go to this you are welcome to stay at my house! I am only 42.8 miles from it (according to google) and I won't even charge you to use my air mattress!!
I could not stress to my children ENOUGH how AWESOME it is to get 5 of us each our OWN drinks for $5!!! The simple pleasures we enjoy!!It's amazing how happy they were when they got THEIR drinks!! It was hot outside!! We were hot!! These drinks were NOT!!!
I know, I know....this is a HORRID picture of me, but it was hot outside, unbelievably Hot and i wanted you to see how greatful I was for my drink!! I usually don't look like this! It's usually much worse!! Ha!!
This is how stinkin' hot it was!!! Nobody!!! I repeat NOBODY!!! should be out gathering pumpkins on the 26th day in October when the temperature is this high!!!!
But, we did it!!! Chalk it up to the love of fall and wanting to give your children some memories!!! This really isn't what I had planned!!! But does it ever turn out that way?? I think NOT!!!

I was mopping the kitchen floor this evening before dinner. (weird I know, but I knew I wouldn't want to do it after. I'm just different like that!)
I was cleaning the floor by the hamster cage and I noticed that she was NOT moving. I gave her 'bedroom' a little tap....and nothing...another little tap.....still nothing......i jiggled the cage a little and decided she was dead. Usually after the first couple taps she about jumps out of her skin and gives me a evil glare. Nothing this time.
Now to break it to the girls. M seemed to be fine with it. I had briefed them before that hamsters really don't live that long. T started to cry. Then she told me she would be okay though because we still have Evan. I haven't even said anything to D yet. I really don't think she will even notice until the cage is gone.
As an animal lover I am sad to see this little creature dead. Anytime I see any animal dead it makes me sad. Even squirrels and other roadkill smashed in the middle of the highway. (Sorry, a tad too graphic!)
But I have to tell you that as a mother and the caretaker of this house......I'm glad to see the little bastard gone!!
No more changing the stinky bedding.
No more turds falling out of the excerise ball as she rolls through the house.
No more 11pm hamster wheel squeaking.
No more 12am hamster wheel squeaking.
No more 2 am hamster wheel squeaking.
No more 4 am hamster well, you get the picture...
No more of her trying to bite me when I show her any kind of affection. (She doesn't like to be touched)
No more 'spraying her stink' on me when I actually do get her picked up.
No more bedding laying on the floor around her cage, (cause she can't find her food she buried)
No more turds laying on the floor around her cage because she dropped them down the chute and they fell out! Blech!!
I'm sure there's others, but I hate to go on since she was a nice little pet. Sad to say the only reason we got her in the first place was because we were to cheap to pay the deposit on a real animal when we were renting in NM.
So fair well stinky Charmony!! You will be missed by all!!!

D was playing so nicely in the living room yesterday while I was cleaning up the house.
Until I walked in and saw THIS!!!
She had gotten into some of T's makeup that she received for her birthday! (Thanks Grammy!)
She managed to 'hide' it and pull it out when she needed it!!
She did not know the mess she had made on her face until she followed me into the bathroom and looked in the mirror! I wish I would have gotten a picture of that!!!
D said: OOOOOHH, I need a wippee!! Dat too much!!
Me: Well no sh**!!! ( I didn't really say that, but it sure wanted to come out of my mouth!!!)
She did this RIGHT before we had to get the girls from school and it would not come off. Everybody kept asking if she had eaten a cupcake or candy or something!!
There is still a small bit of evidence tonight!!
We all look a little crazy with our red eyes!!! I guess I should have gotten rid of that before posting?!
There are a couple of posts I've been meaning to get done, but haven't... we had company to weekends in a row! Exciting, but tiring. So be on the lookout! They are some goodies!!
I VOTED TODAY!!!!
This was my first time ever! I'm so PROUD to be an AMERICAN!!!
If you haven't voted yet, please do so! YOUR vote matters!!
Oh, by the way... I am a little miffed! I didn't even get a sticker, saying 'I VOTED'!!! What a rip off!!!! I was so upset! My first time voting and I didn't get a sticker!!!!
Now I know how my kiddos feel when they don't get their stickers!!! .....IT SUCKS!!!!!
