waiting for a call

hey, long time no chat. I'm sitting at the station waiting for a call. Tonight is fishbowl night at a local bar and usually we get some calls around 2:30am SOO.. I'm on the schedule until 2 and will go to the second truck after that. This station is really cool, there is a work out gym so my happy (chubby) butt can try to get into shape. There is a lounge where i found out people on the overnight crew are sleeping and I woke them up. The yard at home is really looking fantastic. We had cut a bunch of trees down and a man came to grind all of the stumps. Then our neighbor took his excivator (sp) and dug this huge hole and we buried the trees and the old green house in it..set it a blaze.. and threw dirt on top. Basically there is a mound out there the size of the house and I'm waiting for it to cave in while I'm on the mower. I started the summer with some ginnies (there like a turkey/chicken) and the females went off to hatch some chicks, well they came back with like 30 chicks! Now I'm missing a bunch of chickens and these chicks. So Sunday we are in the big living room watching a movie and Daniel says who's dog is that? F'n coyotes are killing my chickens in the middle of the daytime. I spent the rest of the day putting up a fence. I though they were heading out into the corn fields or something and they were really KFC.
Hear is something I found funny today. I get these this old house magazines, and in the back is this toilet that is called the insinertoilet. I was like gross. So I looked into it and there are a few companies making them now one in MN that makes this huge one for up to 20 toilets. It is supposed to be the new "Green" way to go, with no use of water and burns the disposal into ash you can conviently use in your garden. (yummy) but the name of the company in MN is Hankey & Brown... kinda reminds you of what is being burned in there product :) I thought that was funny.

We are looking at some property up north and will haved 80 acres, a pond, a shop, bar and duplex on it...gues i will need a biger mower..haha

This has really been a crazy month..Dad and I both came down with the flu. My cousin Phylis past away. (Tommy and Gails mother) This winter has been crazy with snow and wind! I don't know about you but I am ready to see sunlight again. Work stuck me in the customer care the days are dragging. I'm thinking of switching to second shift. I think I would be able to get more done that way. Seems like everything closes when I get off work. I have gotten hooked on this store up town called Broken Pieces. It is a place where you can go and paint what every you want and she puts it into a kin?? for you and you when you pick it up 3 days later you're like wow! that red came out a bit orange'ish. (maybe that is just what i keep thinking)
So since I have been home with the flu I saw two episodes of this show aliens in america..kinda funny. Lipstick sex in the city. I still like scrubs and the food channel only makes me hungry. Vinny on OCC is really starting to loose his hair, but still cute as hell!

Well now we are caught up on my rambilings how about you?
happy birthday marge!!!

Yawn, Lawn and Holy F'n Moskito's

So Pumpkin's kittens are so cute! I wish I could keep them all, but as much as love them so does Trinity. Naughty girl already grabbed ahold of one. The little girl is just as sweet as her mommy. I named her's so stupid, but now she is starting to answer to it. I put the free kitten signs up in the store, pet store, and laundry mat today. I'm also getting rid of the ducks. We decided that if no one takes them soon we will keep them. I didn't want to put any money into the barn, but (cross our fingers) monday the house is ours. Then I will be willing to drop more money into things.

We are putting down a proposal for the resturant and hotel...looks like we will get that too. Rock On!!

Ahhh, crap, it's september again. Now I'll be 31.

I have to start my classes again, every two years you have to take a refresher course for EMS. Better crack open my book. Think, Think, you can do it. (I'm telling that to my brain)

Well Dana did not work. She says everyone still calls her Danielle. And sequience is in style this year at the Jr. High. So we had to buy some cool shirts and pants. Ya know when I was a kid my aunt Dee and Joyce would take me shopping and hold up some pastel looking shirt and say isn't this cute? My reaction was always something like, yeah, it's great. With that tone of, no, not really. So when I shop with Danielle and she hold up some bright shinny shirt and says isn't this cute. hmm, no, but I'll buy it if you wear it. Don't they sell some machine that you can punch sequence into your cloths or something? I'll have to get that for her.

Ok let us talk tv now. rock of love...yummy bret michaels. I hope Jess wins. Sabastian Bach on that rap show...what the F*ck ran through his mind to do that. Mr. Woodcock looks good. Hogan knows best, is it me or is the daughter getting risky in her outfits. sorry Anna will correct me...Riska-a That's it. I have to help write a proposal, so I need to jott down some ideas.

trying to keep up!

I finally have a decent chance to catch up on some of my blog. sorry for the long delay. The stress of buying this house is taking its toll on me. Our biggest problem is that it will be considered a refinance loan since we have a land contract on it. Every one wants to take another appraisal....this monday will be the fourth one. We want the most that we can get since I want to redue the kitchen and sunroom for this winter. They never braced up the stairway and it is making my kitchen sag a little, plus I hate the cubboards. The kitchen was added to ass the faimly grew, so everything is mismatched and the pantry between the kitchen and fridge is suck and oddity. We spend a soo much heating that huge living room last year, so I will move my office into the sunroom, and make the original living room back into one. See our living room has a seperate heater, and its a gas one so....expensive! Besides it gives me a chance to decorate another room and a great excuse to buy more furniture.

The softball team went great....we won our last four games and the parents who were very skeptical of me then shook my hand and said that their kid really had a good time, and it was great to see the team improve....blah blah blah. sorry I should really be glad to have FINALLY won their approval. I shouldn't say that most of the parents were ok, some it took a while and only one do I still want to hunt for sport. The junior high coach asked me to help next year and put together a team and a pitching camp. The pitching camp thing caught me off guard. It made me stop and watch the Jr. High team play a game and I realized why he asked me. Not to brag or anything, but Dana and two other girls from my team pitch better than the jr. high and the high school pitchers. I sat there watching them with the voice in my head saying "holly shit, my team ( 3-5th graders) could play them."

thank you Anna for taking the pictures...I'm sure they look great. As soon as I can find my battery charger for the camera I will post all of the pictures that are in there.

Ruger is healed up and running around just fine. He stays clear of the road now. Ruger was hit by a car one day while I was out mowing, he saw the kids accross the street and started to go over there. Lucky for him it only hurt one leg. He was rushed to the vet, they took x-rays and stitched him up. He was bandaged up for about a week then we took out his stitches, and he had to wear a cone around his neck to keep from picking at his leg. He hated to cone so Brad took it off and we just kept yelling at him, no no no, don't pick at your leg.

Looks like I will be getting a new lawn mower. Brad found a bigger one with more accessories, like a snow blower attatchment! After last years snow fall I really could use one. So Im not arguing the purchase of this mower. Only problem is now he wants to sell me allis chalmers that I have now, and the old girl and I have formed a bond. I'm such a retard for old tractors. I blame the family for that.....dam farmers...ha ha.

Dad and I took the camero out for a spin the other day. sorry, but God dam I love that car! Dad took off the t-top on his side and just sits there smiling. We were at an intersection and I said this guy next to us is starting to annoy me. He was looking at us weird and so finally I said Hi and nodded like, ya know, the lips together, evil eye, stop it, nod. Then the guy says I would never let my wife drive my car, to dad. And he says back, I have to, its hers. The guy just goes really? Then these teen age boys in a newer mustang wanted to race me at a stop light so I switched seats with dad and let him kick their asses....I was great. I know I would have killed it if I tried to race someone. It's so funny how you can forget how to drive a stick when you don't do it every day. So I need to ket some new tires for the Camero, the coards are sticking out on one of the back tires. They are expensive and with the new house and all I will have to wait. cry, cry, I want my car!

I found a guy that will teach me how to paint small shit like ghost flames and little art work stuff. So I was like, sign me up! I have to get one of the paint guns and what not. He said that we have to bring in some of our own things to paint, so I figure I will start with the suzuki and work my way through to the kawi and then DADS Bike. When I mentioned it dad moned and said we'll have to see how you do on yours first. Now he has a design in his mind that he wants done and he's bugging me to start the class. I know it will be hard for me only because I don not have a lot of patients. so I will probable throw things and cuss alot....but I want to do it, so maybe I will controll my temper.

Well I have some yard work to of luck at the game Margie. Icepacks, bengay and IB profen. gotta love it. J/k best of luck.

ps did I mention that Joes girlfriend is pregnant again! Soon he'll have two and I'm still waiting for one!

Remember the Bangels....Manic Monday

Hmm, Where to start....
The pressure tank sprung a whole, and while it was being replaced our house apprasier showed up to do the appraisal. Yeah, that was cool. His comment was try to get rid of the water in the basement for the photos, that he was taking! My comment to self was something like, Yeah, I'll just pull that magic out of my Ass. Other than that everything is ok and the house will soon be ours. VICTORY

Mike Walsh past away. It was good to see Aaron (dirt ball) and Ryan again, just wish it wasn't to say I'm sorry. I saw a few school mates at the funeral, and yes...I still hold the title for one who gained the most weight. Yippy

Softball team is doing better. I have an assistant coach's Adam and Garet!
(ahh I hear Anna laughing now) Garet believes that he should have power to make the girls run a lap. Jokes on him because Adam made him run a lap. Somewhere in practice tonight Garet wanted Adams attention and he called him Mom. Poor kid had 11 year olds picking on him for that one. (Garet is Adams younger cousin and he is constantly picked on.) So tonights practice went so great. Last weeks game was a killer. I had one girls forget her shirt, one forget her glove, and one kept telling me she didn't want to play, a dad that kept screaming through the fence at his kid (f'bombs), and my kid showed up late. By the second inning I need an asprin, and a stiff drink. BUT WE ARE IMPROVING!

Ruger (our rat terrier) only has one nut! It's so weird. I've been calling him uno nut. His newest hobby is chewing Dana's shoes and doing naughty things to her stuffed animal. Note, it's all his now.

The back yard still needs work, after all it was ignored for almost 5 years. But Dana and I have the apple trees trimmed up and Adam cut a few shrubs down for us. If I can get it all into one pile, we will have one hell of a big bonfire. I have not touched the barn yet so...sorry I don't have pictures of the geese yet.

I have to run. I will post something interesting later in the week.

Well I am sitting here typing out a letter to my team and their parents. I made a practice schedule and am trying to politely encourage parents to help out on game days, but seem to be struggling with the words to nicely say back off during practices. hmmm too many f words may scare people.....ha ha (maybe) I was handed my list of girls names after the game tonight. I don't know any of these kids so Dana says that one of the names is the unlimited arch girl. I rolled my eyes back and said to myself, Dammit Anna was right! See, Anna said to me today that if these kids bugged me, I would probably get them on my team. Dam you!!! What if tried catching at tonight's game. A batter whacked her in the side of the helmet and she turned and looked at the umpire with a look like ...yeah, what's up. I said "are you ok honey" and she said "yeah, what'd he want" in reference to the umpire. I laughed and said nothing honey you were beaned in the head, didn't you hear it?

On a happy note the guy we have been going through for our house loan has hit my last nerve. Brad and I decided to inform him that as of tomorrow we will be talking to other people. I kinda helped, because he got off his ass. But we're still talking to other people, and a new appraiser will be coming tomorrow from a different lending company. Cross you fingers for us.

p.s. Pumpkin (our cat) is prego.
