I am still here...

but we are so unbelievably busy here in the Hinterland that I just don't have time to write anything worth much of anything for the tens of people (that's a stretch I know) that actually read this mostly sorry attempt at blogging.

A new post, complete with pictures, will be coming soon.

So stay tuned! And please keep stopping by, otherwise you may just miss it!

Today, May 21st...

Outside my window…cloudy, occasional sprinkles, cooler than the past few days (where we broke high temp records) and the wind has significantly diminished.

I am thinking
thankfully the day is almost over, and how excited I am for our TV date night tonight when we get to finally watch the Lost season Finale...only 8 days after it originally aired. (sigh)

I am thankful that…Jack successfully made it thru his graduation program today. He did so well and I am very proud of him.
And after receiving his "diploma", instead of shaking his teacher's hand or even giving a simple hug, he leaped into her arms and squeezed hard with his eyes shut tight. It made the entire sanctuary chuckle and sigh.

From the kitchen…I browned and threw boneless country style ribs with a bottle of honey BBQ sauce into the crockpot this morning
...sides of misc fried potatoes from the oven, skinny green beans, applesauce. YUM-O!

I am wearing…brown rayon crop pants, and a funky southwestern patterned top.

I am creating…this blog. Sorry it's been a few days.

I am going…to get my kids showered and to bed VERY SOON!

I am reading…HRH by Danielle Steele (I've read every single one of her books to date)

I am hoping…that we can get our act together and get our To Do and To Buy Lists done so we can make progress in preparations for hosting a Hinterland Family Reunion in yikes....4 weeks!

I am hearing…Coleo drummin' and the Hubs jammin on guitar.

Around the house much to do, so little time (the aforementioned reunion)

One of my favorite things...smiley happy children. A smiley happy husband.

A few plans for the rest of the week
...see above....lots of To Do lists in the works. The Hubs got a freebie day of vacation for tomorrow (manager directed day off) so hopefully it's a good one being home together without the distraction of all 4 kiddos being home too. We haven't been running in sync the past few days...we need to get back on track.

Oh well...

Oh well. Danny Gokey is goin' home. I am bummed. I am tired of the judges all gushing and mushing about Adam. eh? But I knew that it couldn't be a Kris and Danny Finale - they are just a little bit too similar style-wise. But I have hopes now that anyone who was voting for Danny will now vote for Kris and blow Adam out of the water! Go Kris!

On the homefront, I have 72 crazy, frenzied hours ahead of me. I co-chair the HUGE Gi-norm-ous sale for my Mothers of Multipl
es Group. There are 30+ sellers this time around, we rent a building on our county fairgrounds and we fill 25 racks with clothing and the rest of the barn with other baby/child/household gear, toys and paraphernalia! It's a major fundraiser for our club, plus we all make a pretty nice chunk of change for our own pockets! But it's a crazy and busy couple of days and as co-chair I will pretty much abandon my family for the next 72 hours.

Oh well #2. My crazy busy sale weekend means that we have to miss out on seeing Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers in concert. Cuz...ya know...we kinda like this band. Just a little. Just look at him!

(This is us with Rog in Mexico)

and here's just a really pretty picture of him...(I'm pretty sure I am breaking at least two commandments just looking at it.)

He is an amazing songwriter/musician and he, along with the Peacemakers, puts on a smokin' hot show of full out, tequila infused, no holds barred, rock and roll, and thankfully The Hubs loves their music as much I do. Cuz' it's not ALL about the pretty face people. But it certainly doesn't hurt now does it??

We've ONLY seen them 8 times in 2 years, includin
g a trip to Mexico (yes that's right, we flew 2000 miles and drove another 4 hours after that, with all 4 kiddos after for a concert. In Mexico. So worth it!) Anyway, they are playing in a town near us and we have to miss this one due to an overwhelming schedule and I am bummed.

The last oh well is the worst. See, it's my guy's birthday on Friday. Not just any birthday either. It's a biggie. Yes...the 4-0. Eek! We both turn 40 this year - exactly 30 weeks apart. And I am feeling pretty crummy that I haven't and won't be able to work something out to ring in this new decade for him. (And going to see Rog and the Peacemakers was supposed to be part of the deal!) I actually told him maybe he should just go buy another new guitar so I could quit feeling so guilty for being such loser wife and not throwing a big party. I think a few of my awesome wife points will be lost for this one. I promise Honey..I will make it up to you.

Oh well.
