Someone stop this ride, I want to get off.....

So the storm has started and I am stuck here in the house.....with my family in it's entirety.
Everyone in my extended family & my husband's family over the age of 60 keep calling to make sure none of us are "still out in this weather".
I have this HUGE party planned for Saturday night and all my around-the-house chores are pretty much finished...except for cleaning the bathrooms which I do at the very last possible moment due to the fact that my family cannot swish their own toothpaste spit out of the sink or manage to actually pee IN the bowl (my daughter included).
Mother Nature has blessed our part of the country with spattering of "White Christmas" in the form of 6-10".
The schools have dismissed early. Usually not a big deal, however they have dismissed early the past 2 days due to parent/teacher conferences. I have had at least one child in tow at all times, each day. dear husband, whom I love & cherish, has been around this week waiting for the water guy to deliver water for our backyard rink......(remember me? I'm the chick that wrote about how hockey is so good for kids?.....blah, blah, blah...)
So the hubby...."Hi Honey!"(he reads Trish's Blog)......put a small crimp (see how nice I'm being?) in my run-around-and-get-stuff-done day yesterday by having me hold boards while he nails them in place on the rink so the water guy can come today.
So Hubby is home early again today for water delivery......all 4 of us are here. Home in the middle of the day on a Thursday. This reminds me of why we don't book a vacation for 2 weeks in a row anymore.
Oh....and by the way.... The water guy cancelled. He says he's stuck on I495 on the side of the road. Poor Guy. I wish I was with him.
Another round of peanut butter sandwiches.
More TV.
More hot cocoa....we are out of marshmallows now.
More......"Mom! She's bugging me!"....or....."Mom! It's my turn to watch my shows!"
Here comes the plow. I think I'll go out there and hitch a ride. Maybe he will take me out to the mall where I need to spend money we don't have.
Bah Humbug. Blech.
Just needed to vent.......thanks for listening........I will be better tomorrow.
I have a nail appointment at 1pm. I just may kiss my nail girl square on the lips.

Its a Sign from Julia!!!!

Ok back to what I blogged about this morning....Julia Roberts....

I flicked on the TV and Notting Hill is on...its a sign....

Julia Roberts and I are soul sisters for the following reasons:
1) We both have curly hair (twins I tell ya twins!!)

2) We both straighten our hair (can you believe it????)

3)We both have given birth!!! (coincidence??? I think not)

4) We both wear wigs and pretend to be prostitutes (uncanny)

(just to qualify that statement, I wasn't ACTUALLY dressed as a prostitute, but I did have wig with bangs and did some pretty sleezy things at the party)

5) We were both married to Lyle Lovett..
Wait a, but ...I once listened to Lyle Lovett on the radio by accident

6) We both hang out with people named George, yup the custodial engineer at my company is named George!!!

7) We both like the movie Steel Magnolias (I mean she must like that movie right???) and I once thought I was having a diabetic seizure after eating too many mentos and I have been known to drool orange juice out of my mouth.... (remember that scene???)

8) We both have strange families

9) I once made my friend to Karoke when she didn't want to and neither of us have a chance in hell of hooking up with Rupert Everett

10)We both hate Rachel Ray.... Well I am not sure if Julia does for certain, but come on, I'll bet she hates Rachel Ray.

Oh and lastly # 11!!!

We both have 3 best friends who drink cosmopolitans and hang out in New York City and share our lives and their names are Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha!!! YES the similarities are striking... We both have been intimate with people named Mr Big (or well perhaps that is the pet name of something I keep in my nightstand..)

Wait a minute.. that's Carrie Bradshaw...ummm

Maybe she's my soul sister... umm

Sorry never mind


That's why I Love Julia

I knew she had a little crazy soccer mom in her like me!!!

Julia Roberts has chased down paparazzi that were snapping pictures of her near a school. She chased them down and told them to "knock it off."

I am the first to admit, while waiting in the supermarket line I will take a look at Britney walking out of Starbucks, barefoot with no underpants, but I do not envy what these actors and actresses have to go through with the paparazzi. I for one say "kudos to Julia!" I am biased, however, I love her and I think she is my soul sister. Have you ever seen the movie Notting Hill when Hugh Grant's sister is obsessed with Julia...yeah that's me.
