Oh my goodness...it's Tuesday...where has time gone?

I can't believe I haven't posted since Friday. Well Saturday was super busy, it was my DH's birthday. The girls were elsewhere so we were actually going to celebrate his birthday on Sunday when they got home. So Saturday, I ran some errands, got DH a super cool outfit of madras (plaid for those who have no clue as to what I am talking about) shorts and a heathered blue "polo" to go with it. I also got him a set of monogram handkerchiefs. When he finally got home, we decided to go out and eat and go to the movies. We went for seafood, (his choice of course since it was his bday) and then to see Wanted, the new movie with Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman. VERY INTENSE, lots of "colorful language" lots of violence but to me a very good movie. However, DH said "he didn't get it". You do have to watch the entire movie for it to make sense. I personally loved the ending and the special effects. Sunday, I made his bday cake and we painted all day!!! Will this project ever end? And by the way, where is my floor man??? The girls finally got home and gave him their cards and a new seat cover for his truck (that will never die...ugly as **** but he loves it. If only it would fit in the garage!)

So speaking of Birthdays (and anniversaries) here is my Good Wishes to family for the month of July:

Happy Birthday and Anniversary to each and everyone....we love you!!

Now that it is July 1 and very much into "tick" time here is a trick you may have heard about or received in email regarding tick removal:

To Remove the entire TICK safely:

A School Nurse has written the info below good enough to share and it really works!! I had a pediatrician tell me what she believes is the best way to remove a tick. This is great, because it works in those places where it's sometimes difficult to get to with tweezers: between toes, in the middle of a head full of dark hair, etc. Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the soap soaked cotton ball and let it stay on the repulsive insect for a few seconds (15-20), after which the tick will come out on it's own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away. This technique has worked every time I've used it (and that was frequently), and it's much less traumatic for the patient and easier for me. Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can't see that this would be damaging in any way. I even had my doctor's wife call me for advice because she had one stuck to her back and she couldn't reach it with tweezers. She used this method and immediately called me back to say, "It worked!"

Now for 2 cute little jokes...

Irish Gas Station: Taking a day off from the golf course, Tiger Woods drives his new Mercedes into an Irish gas station for some petrol. The attendant greets him in typical Irish manner of "A top of the morning to ya," totally unaware who the golf pro is. As Tiger gets out of his car, two tees fall out of his pocket. "And what be those things?" the attendant asks. "They're called tees," replies Tiger. "And what would ya be usin 'em for, now?" inquires the Irishman. "Well, they're for resting my balls on when I drive," says Tiger. "Aw, Jaysus, Mary an' Joseph!" exclaims the Irish attendant. "Those fellows at Mercedes think of everything."

"Menopause Jewelry"

My husband, being unhappy with my mood swings, bought me a mood ring the other day so he would be able to monitor my moods. We've discovered that when I'm in a good mood, it turns green. When I'm in a bad mood, it leaves a big frickin red mark on his forehead.

Maybe next time he'll buy me a diamond. Dumb a$$.
