Sometimes we need a sham-wow for our lives...

seriously...wouldn't it be great if we had a giant sham-wow to suck up the shit that life deals us sometimes? i would love to give it to a friend of mine right now...to be able to say "here love, wrap yourself in this, it soaks up all the tears and the suck...wring it out and flush it down the toilet. life is good again." i don't forsee that happening so i guess all of girls will just have to be the sham-wow's in her life.

on a brighter note...had a FABULOUS weekend scrapping my ASS off!!! my sister came this time so it was the first time my mom, sister and i were all on a scrap weekend together! it was the best...i can't can't get enough time with them. i got sooo many layouts done, 25 to be exact. and one of those was a super rad one that totally made fun at my sweet, sick, cashed out friend Fran. sorry, gave her the layout so i can't post. it was good too. just make a mental note, don't fall asleep with a group of dirty minded chicks around! ;) Here's a few of my favorite layouts from the weekend...

This is one my favorite photos that jeri took...can you tell the ADD people in my family???!!! LOL.

this layout has a pretty funny story to it. about 6 months ago kien was done poopin and yelled "mom...i'm done!" ya know...this just isn't one of life's most glorius moments, wipen your childs but...so i said to kien "YES!!! man that's awsome!! I LOVE wipen butts kien...and i am so glad i get to wipe yours!" of course i was being sarcastic, but he didn't know that and now when ever he is done pooping he yells "mom i'm done" and I yell "YES" and he says..."cuz you loooove wipen butts, right mom?"
and i say..."yes kien...i LOVE wipen butts!"

ok...one more, only cuz it's taking too long to upload these. maybe i'll figure out how to get flicker working on my blog and i can just put em all there.

i went back in time a bit and did some catching up on kien's stuff...i think i fell in love with him all over again!!! LOOK at those big 'ol brown eyes! UHHHH!

that's it my friends...pretty boring stuff around here.

peace, love and sunshine!

God is great, beer is good, and people are CRAZY!

So yes, God is great...especially to me. I have no idea why because I certainly don't deserve it. He keeps trying to lead me away from things and for some reason I keep choosing the more dangerous and less deserving path. Someday I hope to figure out why He is so patient with me.

Easter was good. Went to ohio to do the regular oxenrider thing. kids had a blast finding their eggs and playing with the bubbles Kathy got for them. Thank goodness for aunts and grandparents that remember to get stuff for easter baskets because being the looser parents that we are WE didn't do ANY baskets for the kids! I got the shape of an L on my forehead. Easter wrapped up spring break week for us...which was pretty low key. The water park was the shizzle....so much fun!!! That place is GYNORMOUS!!!! So what totally sucked about it was that Jeri's kids all got sick. Seriously...felt so bad for her. Kegan passed out, Delanie threw up THREE times...Yuck! But in between feeling like crap and after being pumped with motrin (the kids wonder drug) they did get to play a LITTLE bit. I took NO photos!! Well, i took a few with my phone, but no others! I didn't want to be behind a camera all weekend or take the chance of getting my camera wet. But trust me, we had a fantastic time!!

Beer is good. I found some pics from michelle and my's st. patty's adventure. good times. maybe not for michelle...but it was for me!

And DAMN...people are crazy. period...Burry knows what I mean.

Here's some classes I'm teaching in may. i'm pretty happy with them. we'll see how it goes!

Update on the fam...
Von-Oh yeah...i remember how fun you are now that i see you one extra day a week!
Emma-no one messes with her brother!
Ethan-still loves that damn thumb...but becoming such a handsome boy.
Kien-way emotional and sensitive...uuhhgg! and i think he may be loosing his hearing?? i'm watching this one.
me- ...hmmm...still me. locking up all things emotionally unsafe.
Willo- pain in the ass...but cute as hell.

Check out my blog soon, jeri took some GREAT photos of the kids that I will hopefully be able to post soon.
peace, love and craziness

Green tears.... :(

Spartans Fall to Tar Heels in NCAA Title Game

Goran Suton led the Spartans with 17 points, and Kalin Lucas had 14.
uhhhh...so sad. But seriously...who did these kids think they were coming to play?? Did they really think they could shoot the ball half ass and give up...like...EVERY damn rebound?? N.C. is fantastic...but dude...it should have been a much better game. Like Tom Izzo said..."they got us before, but this time we will be more prepared and they won't beat us like that again." I love you Tom...like a father, but WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED??? i need some time people...let me grieve.
