We were the closest family possible. Our world was turned upside down on 05/03/09 when my best friend, the person I love most next only to our children, my sister Trina was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. Her body gave out on her on 01/09/10 but she will ALWAYS be a part of our daily life and will continue to be in my posts. I started my blog to chronicle our daughter's international adoption from Guatemala and have continued to use it as a journal.

What you will find is my family trying to adapt to our new lives that were handed to us.

too lazy and funny email

I slept too long today and now I can't get to sleep tonight! Ugh. That and laying in bed too long made me hurt worse than usual. Double ugh. I should have taken a sleeping pill earlier. If I take one now, I'll sleep until noon and then won't get my work done.

I got this email from my best friend Amanda on Wednesday. I never responded to it because I was too busy peeing my pants, laughing too hard. It cracked me up! Here it is:

Today is International Disadvantaged People's Day

Please send an encouraging message to a retarded friend, just as I've done.

I don't care if you lick windows, interfere with farm animals, vote liberal or occasionally crap yourself.......

You hang in there sunshine, you're freaking special...

The reason I laughed so hard is because at one time or another, I've done all of these, or continue to do them (voting liberal)!!! And please keep all your smart ass comments to yourself about how "offensive" or "not funny" this is. I guess this is my skewered or dry sense of humor in all it's "glory" (I feel like damn Britney Spears with all the "air quotes" I have going on here). Anyway, hope you are all having wonderful weekends. Kerry, you better be packed and ready to go pick up your pretty boy!!!! Holly, make sure you buy all the stuff for Gia's party. Erin, well, I'm just so sorry for you but at least you found a good deal on the dolls. Andrea, quit stalking your mail person. Sissy, I hope you are sleeping right now after a hard day playing with my favorite nephew. Until later.........

SUPER lazy day :)

Man, I had such a lazy day today I feel really guilty. My parents, Trina and Asa went to Goldendale for the day so I started off by running over to Trina's to see Asa before they left. As a bribe, I brought Asa a "hot tocklet" for him. He slurped that down while watching "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse". I HAVE to stop buying him stuff. Trina said that last night when he was getting ready for bed he was whining "Sissy's house, go to Sissy's house" and when Trina asked him why, he answered "she buys me presents". Bad tia! Very bad tia! In fact yesterday when I was at Best Buy I was looking at a Cars handheld pinball game for $3.74. I had it in my hand, in line, when I told myself no, he doesn't need anything else. He needs to realize that Christmas/Hanukkah is over and so are presents. So I put it back. I was at freakin' Best Buy anyway, the kid doesn't need anything from Best Buy! So, after visiting with sissy and Asa, my parents came to pick them up. They all drove off for a fun filled day and I drove home. I planted my butt on the couch and watch my season 2 of "The Office" extras. I only watched the extras, on each of the 4 DVD's. The bloopers are the best. Rainn Wilson, what a crack up! He got married not far from where I live. So, after a few hours of that, I went and laid down at 1pm and woke up at 4:30!!!! I had a freakin' 3 1/2 hour nap!!!! How kick ass is that? Norm got home a little while later and he made me pizza kit! Yum! Now I'm blogging, my dad is over watching boxing and all is right with the world. Asa had a fabulous time in Goldendale. They had some snow so he went sledding. Trina said she took lots of pictures and video of it. Can't wait to see it. So, that was my incredibly decadant Saturday. Until later........
