Lady A and Tim

Last night my mom dragged me to Summerfest in Milwaukee to see

You'll have to settle for these pics I took of the big screen.  I didn't even want to try risking taking my camera so I took my daughter's point and shoot.  I was hoping we'd be close enough to get something decent but we were a bit farther back than I thought.

I'm usually not much for country music, but it was a good show.  I may even consider putting a song or two on the ipod. 
Shhh.......don't tell my mom!

Friday we took a drive to Milwaukee to get tickets to see The Cake Boss.  WooHoo!  We all like watching the show so it will be something fun to do as a family.

While down there we took a little walk along the Milwaukee River and had our pics taken with the bronz Fonz....

The kids weren't interested in making fools of themselves!

Sunday we had a nice Father's day.  We slept in a bit, the kids and I made breakfast for hubby, we discussed a few trips we may take in the future, spent some time checking out an Artisan Faire in town, had cake and did some fishing.

Well, hubby and the kids fished......I took photos.......

Today I got talked into buying a book of Twilight songs for the clarinet!! 

 I guess if it gets her to practice her clarinet over summer break it's all good.

Getting ready for Eclipse

Last night Skowt and her friends made tshirts to wear to the midnight showing of Eclipse.  I think she did a great job!

Even though she is Team Jacob!

There's about 20 of going, it should be fun!  Now Tiger is jealous and wants to make a shirt too

Flashback Friday: The Monkees

I really wish I could keep this up and get in the habit of doing a flashback post every Friday!!  I haven't done one since last year!
Anyway, today hubby and I were talking about old TV shows we used to watch and maybe putting some on our netflix cue to revisit some of them.  We'd probably laugh our butts off wondering why we ever watched this lame stuff.  My mom and Tiger have been watching Emergency on the MeTv channel lately.  It is so corny!
One of my favorites as a kid was The Monkees.  No, I'm not old enough to have watched it the first time around!  Though I'm not that far off I guess.  It was the mid 70s and my cousin and I loved watching the reruns.  Though at the time we had no clue they were reruns. 
Anytime we got together we would play Monkees.  Her and I would fight over who would be Davy because he was our favorite.  The other would then be Mike.  We would make my brother and her sister play Peter and Mickey. 
We used to listen to the theme song and wonder why they never came to our town!

Years later I got a chance to see a reunion tour with Davy, Peter and Mickey.  It was fun but not quite what I hoped.  I guess I still had the TV image of them in my head.  I still have the Tshirt I bought!

Did you ever have a post all ready to go in your mind, then get online and type most of it up only to double check one thing and realize you had a key point in the story wrong and your post is now pointless?

Yeah, well that's what happened to me this morning so now all you get is me rambling about it.  Because dang it I was all ready to post something today and I'm going to!  Whatever, it was kinda lame anyway, I guess.

I feel cheated.  Now you can too!

Reading this is 30 seconds you'll never get back.

And why is it that everyone in my family can eat just half a bagel when they are not that hungry, but then no one will ever eat the other half?

I love you. Now go away.

I didn't think I was in a bad mood when I got up this morning.  In fact, I still really don't think I am.

But when hubby got up, it seemed like every little thing he did or said annoyed me.  I felt bad but I was kinda glad he had overtime scheduled today and had to go in 4 hours early. 

It doesn't happen that often, I usually love spending time with him.  But every once in a while I just feel like telling him to just get out of my face! 

I guess I just need some alone time today.  Maybe it's the rain.........or the fact that my monthly friend will be showing up soon!  Another thing that can just go away cuz I really don't need you any more.  I've got my two kids and I'm done!
