TIssue Alert

Lisa posted this on a message board we're on. Over on the right side of the page is a video showing a soldier coming home from Iraq and going to school to surprise his 6 year old son. Definitely a tear-jerker!

I would like to publicly thank all of our service men and women for the sacrifice they've given for all of us!

Yay! Another Nerd Husband!

nevetS asked me about how to program the remote to run the Roomba. My husband actually programmed it, so I'm not sure the actual steps, but I guess that the remote has many different options that you can program it with. The Roomba was actually one of the options. He just told it what button would run it. LOL

Thanks, nevetS for visiting and for being a self-proclaimed Nerd Husband!!

Auto Insurance

Boy, one thing I will never get behind on is paying the car insurance. Working for the attorney's office, I dealt with subrogations, trying to collect the money the insurance company paid out to the insureds due to uninsured drivers and it was a real eye opener! The costs can add up real quick! Much cheaper in the long run to just pay for the insurance!

We've also been looking at online insurance quotes for insurance for our quads. even has listings of companies who will insure motorcycles and boats here in Oregon. They have all the states listed, so you could even check out Maryland Auto Insurance or Connecticut Auto Insurance if you were going to be moving to one of those states. Good information to have so you know what kind of pricing you'll be heading into.

Girly Drama

Holy Catfish! I never went through the whole "girl drama" thing with my friends. I have no experience in this area. Oldest Princess is having friend problems. I thought these girls were pretty nice, etc. Turns out they set her up and then called her a "B" because of what she said. I just want to put my baby in a bubble!!!

But, get this, 2 of the 3 have already called her and apologized. Aye aye aye. But, she's being very cautious. I'm very proud of the way she's handled this.

Poor Sanjaya

Poor Sanjaya. He really needs to go home. I sometimes wonder if the American Idol powers that be are keeping him for a purpose. Anyway, I was browsing blogs and Julie had this Saturday Night Live parody of Sanjaya linked on her site. Hilarious!!

Gardening Made Easy

It can be such a pain in the neck to water my garden. First I have to get the hose drug all the way from the other side of the house to the garden. Then I have to go turn on the water and head back to the garden. After watering, I fight with the hose to get it wound back up.

If I had one of these neat hose reels it would be so much easier! Aren't they neat? You just flip a lever and it uses the water pressure to roll the hose back up, all on its own.

There's many styles to choose from and you can find them at home improvement stores like Lowe's, Home Depot and even Costco!

Don't Forget

Don't forget to come visit my other blog. Let me know what you think of it!

If It Were Only That Easy

It's Tuesday

You know what that means, don't you? Well......normally it would mean dance class! But not this week because of Spring Break. WOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Plus the princesses are with my sister in law. That means I can come home from work and veg. Yay!!!

Awesome Weekend!

What an awesome weekend! It went by way too quickly! We went to the coast to ride the quads with my parents. Yesterday was kind of overcast, pretty windy, but dry. Overnight it poured!!! Nonstop, all night long! We basically figured we wouldn't be riding today. We opened the curtains on the motorhome and lo and behold, blue sky! We got ready, went out and went on an awesome ride! We even shed our jackets, yeah, it was that warm and non-windy. Of course, Craig and I had to leave to come back home. Work will be beckoning us tomorrow. The Princesses stayed with my parents and will come back home tomorrow. Oh and because I'm a dork, there's no pictures. Forgot the camera. :(
