THESE are my new favorite shoes!

They are called Curly and are by Aldo. I ordered my usual size up as Aldo shoes tend to run small. I am really glad I ordered these.

Comfortable, comfortable, comfortable! No joke. These are one of the pairs that arrived Thursday. I wore them out for the first time Sat and was on my feet for hours on end walking all over the place. I slipped them on at 10am and took them off at 9pm. My feet felt fine ALL day.

Since then I have already worn them another two days! Yesterday I wore a different pair of shoes. I already had on a different pair today also but at last minute I went and changed back into these.

**Next subject**

These past few days I have been having really bad pelvic pains, chills and just plain madness going on. Mr.man dragged me to the Dr. and turns out I have am infection (great :/ ). I was prescribed some sort of antibiotics and for some odd reason they make me very very sleepy. I am a wuss when it comes to pills. It seems any and every prescription makes me want to sleep 72 hours straight. Blah.

What makes it worse is Mr.man wants to drag me here and there going to home improvement stores and hardware stores which in turn make me even more drowsy.

I just can't wait until his vacation is over so I can have a few hours to myself. 24/7 with Mr.man gets maddening after a few days. I just have to get through another week and a half.

*plops to floor in despair*

The only thing that keeps me going is the UPS man will be dropping off a little something for me today.

Not ready for this.

The weather has just been screwy. Super hot day, with horrible thunderstorms. Yesterday we got off easy but today.... Not so lucky.

They fixed my garage door today and he finished about 20 minutes before I had to leave to pick my boys up from their school. I looked up and saw that the clouds were becoming grey and black and ran off and closed the sunroof and windows of my older car.

I then jumped in my newer car and went on my way. As soon as I started driving the rain drops started falling. Huge rain drops but they were few and far between. By the time I reached the boys school the rain started coming down hard. On top of that there was a violent wind going on. It was a scary site not only hearing the horrible rain and wind but the thunder and lightning was loud and sounded like it was really close.

I get a call from the boys saying that they were not being released until they saw a parents vehicle. So I had to turn around and drive into the schools parking lot. While doing so a branch flew in my path and missed me by inches. While waiting for the boys to reach my car the hail started. At first it was just regular sized hail. However as soon as the boys were safe in my car the golf balls started falling. The sound of the hail hitting my car was terrifying and I thought that for certain my windows were going to shatter. I start driving home and the main street I take was completely flooded. I try detours and they too are flooded. I don't want to get stuck and stranded in high rising waters and try my best to find a safe way home.

When I finally make it through and get to my neighborhood the golf balls are still falling. Fortunately they were a bit slushy so my car didn't get damaged. I drove into my garage as the door was rising and as soon as I cleared it I closed the door behind me.

That weather lasted for about an hour straight. It was horrible.

I am just glad its over and we are all okay and my cars are okay as well.

I received three packages today containing four pairs of shoes. Oh how I love getting new shoes :) They make a girl happy and make everything all better.

I can't wait until this week is over.

Monday, My car gets trapped in garage.
Tuesday, 112* Uh, need I say more?
Wednesday, 113* humid, thunderstorms and upstairs A/C decides to not want to work. And in the morning I discovered that someone had helped them selves to my hands free blue tooth kit in my older car. Thank you lovely neighbors. Thank you.

The ONLY good things to look forward to?

Thursday, I am expecting three deliveries. Yay!

Friday, Game show taping.

Sat., Farmer's market for some more sun dried tomato tapenade and yummy pita chips.

What else???? Ah yes the best of all, no four day trip with the evil shoe thieves. I am glad I was able to talk Mr.man out of this trip. I think that that many days together would result in my snapping and committing murder and ending up on that one show "snapped".

No outfit pics since it's been yucky hot I haven't been wearing "real" clothes. Just loose fitting jersey dresses I got at F21 2yrs ago or so. Snore.

My car is being held hostage

Last night mr.man comes into the house and says, The garage door is broken. I ask him what happened and as it turns out the torsion springs broke. Joy.

So now my car is trapped in the garage. Good times. Good times :/

It was hot but it was fun

Yesterday was sister 2's baby shower. It was Luau themed and the guests were all too wear Hawaiian wear. I found an old Hawaiian dress in my closet and I set out to find Mr.man a Hawaiian shirt. None were to be found. Anywhere. So I ended up getting him some Hawaiian print swimming trunks. I just had the boys wear shorts and flip flops.

They had the party at my bil's brothers house. He has a gorgeous grotto like pool that is to be envied. That is my dream pool and had I let Mr.man put the pool in when we first bought the house four years ago I could have had one too. But now... We have to wait.

It was terribly hot and as soon as we got there I found the best table with the most shade and sat there. I sat there and I didn't want to move. People kept asking me to come over here or over there and I would graciously decline. No one was going to get me in that awful sun.

There was SO MUCH FOOD! They had a whole roast pig, Kabobs and they had their usual 30+ item Filipino buffet. I was hoping for Pancit but no one made it this time. The kabobs were delicious and the dessert table..... well lets just say I have probably gained 10lbs just from that.

Her sister in laws are wonderfully creative and the decorated the party marvelously. The center pieces, the buffet tables, the dessert tables were gorgeous. I should have taken pictures.

I didn't bother buying my sister a gift and instead just wrote her a check. I know it's kind of tacky, but I figured 1)she's my sis, 2)this way she could use it on anything and the best reason of all 3) it was one of my hello kitty checks so all's good : )

We all had a good time (even my boy's as they enjoyed the pool the entire evening)and I got to come home with ton's of souvenirs and gifts.

A fun weekend and an odd Monday

This weekend was fun as Sat I spent it shopping (and came home with lots of Fall goodies) and on Sunday we went bowling and out to dinner. I had a good time both days with no complaints (other than the awful heat).

This morning started off alright. Today was the first day of school and though the boys pretended to complain I could tell they were excited to go back. Later in the morning I went to pick up my mail. After I closed my mail box I hear a small voice say "Hey, you! That's my mail box" I turn around and see a small 4 or 5 yr old and a 2 or 3 yr old in their front yard across the street from the mail box. They both say "hey you that's my mail box" a couple times (the younger of the two mimicking his older brother)as I walk away not responding to them. Then I hear "Hey you That's our mailbox you bastard" and the little one repeats the sentence. I turn around and say "What did you say? Did you just call me a bastard? I am telling your mother!" I start walking back towards their house. The older of the two says,"I was saying it to the other person" I look around and there is no one else out. I tell him "there is no one else out here and you shouldn't be saying that word. Ever." He goes and hides behind his family vehicle and the younger one follows suit. I decide to let it drop and I go home. I can not believe the mouths on these kinder. Who are they learning this vocabulary from? Geesh.

After I picked the older two up from school (squishy gets out at 2:30 and since kid 1 and 2 are in high school they get out at 3:30) I took them out for an early dinner. It was shortly after 4 when we arrived at the restaurant. They told me about all the new changes to the school rules and curriculum and about their teachers.

I had been waiting for a package and Mr.UPS man finally arrived at 7:40. He again didn't ring the doorbell and at 8:00 I checked the door and there my package was. My jaw dropped to the floor with it's condition. The box looked like an accordion, it was so beat up. I open it up and the shoe boxes too are all mangled. I don't get it. How can they be so freakin careless? GRRR....

Oh well, what can I do?

Turn off the ringer........

So what is it with those "bill collectors" that they don't believe a person that they have a WRONG NUMBER. They believe they know it all and therefore know more than you, the person who owns the phone number. I tell them, No, sorry there is NO Edgar Martinez at this number. They say, well this is the number in our system. I then say, Well it's wrong as the is no Edgar at this number, never was and never will be as I have never even met an Edgar in my life. I then hang up. Yet they call every HALF HOUR. They call, and call and call. F it. I turn off my ringers. We never use the land line anyways and everyone calls us on our cell phones. They have been calling on a blocked number so I can't figure out where they are calling from nor can I report them to anyone.


This afternoon was the boys orientation. The longest waste of time. We had to sit through two hours of blah blah blah (all stuff we already knew) and then they finally gave everyone their schedules. As soon as schedules were in hands we rushed home to watch Project Runway. So I'll see you later : )

Back at home : )

"Home Sweet Home" is the saying right? Oh how true it is. We came home a few days early because we had a few things to take care of. My oldest had to get outpatient surgery on his big toes today. Plus on Thursday we have to go to the boys school and pick up their new schedules.

I can't believe summer vacation is pretty much over. It seems to have flown by but yet it hasn't gone by fast enough. They say this is the coolest summer we have had. Granted we have only had about a week of over 100 degree days versus the normal 4 months. I however can't wait for fall. I miss my tights. I know, weird.

Well I am all unpacked and now I have tons of laundry to do, so Later :)
