Happy Friday

So I was ready to blog about J-Lo's baby, watching the Waltons on my day off on a snowy day, American Idol, the eclipse....

I guess that wasn't meant to be for today.

A friend of mine who rarely sends me emails sent me this link yesterday that I was totally blown away by. The person who sent the email was someone who usually sends me things that involve "boobies", drunk Irish people and hot college girls. So I was not prepared for what I was about to watch. If you have seen this already, watch it again.

a little internet fun....

My Dad introduced me to an interesting site...

They are a collection of live Fox news cameras from around the country. Sometimes you can catch some live news as it unfolds! My Dad is a retired Boston fire fighter so he checks out the New York stations.....he can sometimes catch building fires in the city. He loves to watch the fire companies in action.....ariel ladders everywhere....guys chopping holes in roofs! Action!

My favorites station to watch is NASA had live cameras on the space shuttles and showed images of the astronauts as they hopped around in space! Wild! My 8 year old son loved it too!! The space shuttle is due to land tomorrow morning at the Kennedy Space station. I will be tuned in to see it land!!

Have fun!

Happy Birthday

Happy 5th Birthday Elisabeth!
This is my daughter, Elisabeth, and she is 5 today! I think turning 5 is one of the best birthdays to have. She knows she will be going to kindergarten at her big brother's school.......the one that ALL the kids in the neighborhood go to!

She knows she is finally 5 and has caught up to her best friend, I'll call her "Susie", who is two months older than her......"Mom, why does SHE get to be 5 and I still have to be 4??!!" Try explaining that it's because "Susie's" mom was pregnant two months earlier than I was.....

I have fond memories of the day she was born.....
My husband played hockey the night before so I let him sleep in and chose to drive myself to my induction. Hubby dropped my son off at preschool and came in just after they started to give me some pitocin (sp?).
I labored uneventfully from 9am until exactly 3pm........I pushed from 3:00-4:00......and voila!!!!

....a 9lb. 6oz. screaming baby girl!
A boy & a girl....and we are done!

Happy Birthday, Libby!

I wonder.....

What kind of effects this writer's strike is going to have.....

Baby Boom? Yes, I admit it, I have been bored enough... however, getting pregnant is not an option with the hubster any longer...

Reading...This has been the first time since I joined my book club, that I don't get the "what the hell are they talking about look on my face," and then try to change the subject.

Laundry....I find myself doing laundry at night instead of watching TV.

Calling my girlfriends and saying nothing..."what's up...nothing...yeah me too..."

Blogging...yes I have been blogging more haven't I?

Becoming obsessed with Britney Spears....well when wasn't I

What do I think? GOOD STUFF!! Some of these bring back some interesting memories. The one that comes to mind is Celine Dion The Power of Love. I am fairly certain that one of my roomates in college LOVED LOVED LOVED that one, however, to properly "date" myself, it was the original Laura Brannigan version. Another College favorite of another roomate of mine was Every Rose has its Thorn. I had a flashback when I thought of that song of me running out into the hallway pumped with Rolling Rock and Yagermeister and trying to smash my roomate's radio. However, in her defense, I had a far worse song. Are you ready, its pretty obscure, but just so bad its good. It was a song called When I'm with you by Sherriff. And let me tell YOU, I belted that song out like you would not believe when I was going through some horrific breakup or another. I would like to officially and publically apologize to everyone at O'Connor Hall for that.

I can never resist when my friends send me opportunities to talk about myself

Lets hear from you

  1. If you could change one thing about your appearance (lets not include weight) what would it be?

  2. What would be something that you have never learned to do but would like to (juggling, ice skating etc....)

  3. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would it be?

  4. If you could go on a date with any famous person living or dead who would it be?

  5. Name a day in your life that you would like to re-live keeping in mind you couldn't change anything....

  6. Do you like your twenties or thirties better?

  7. What is your favorite line or scene in a movie or book?

  8. If you had to pick an actress to play you in a movie who would it be?

  9. If you had to indulge yourself for 1 day what would you do?

  10. Is there a particular song that reminds you of your child (lullabye, song that was popular when he/she was born)
