I’m so excited…

…and I just can’t hide it.
I move next week! I’m starting to pack up and I can’t stop smiling. I am so ready for this.
I can’t wait to hang out with friends I haven’t seen in years, to spend time with my family, to have a babysitter when I’m feeling stressed, I’m so ready.


Yee Haw, Let’s Rodeo!

Yesterday was a blast! We got to the carnival around 1:00 pm and we rode rides until 6:30 pm, the kids rode rollercoasters, tea cups, ferris wheels and more. None of the kids cried, they were all good and no one got scared on a single ride…okay J and I were a little freaked out when we rode the ski lift thing that takes you from one side of the carnival to the other. We got up to the top and then apparently there were problems with the ride and we were stuck in the air for 20 minutes. Its like a real ski lift and I had Sophia with me and she kept trying to look over the edge or lean forward and she very easily could have plunged to her death (this is not even an exaggeration). J took lots of pictures at this point to try and keep her from freaking about being stuck in the air like that, Princess thought it was really funny to freak her mom out.

We rode the giant ferris wheel again and the kids had fun looking out at the whole carnival and all the way to downtown Houston.

When I said we were going to eat our weight in carnival food I wasn’t lying. We had corn dogs, turkey legs, pizza, pie, lemonaid, funnel cakes and lots of soda. If I didn’t gain like 10 pounds yesterday it was only because we walked like 100 miles (okay, maybe it wasn’t 100 miles but it was close).

We all put on sunscreen except J and we all burned except Princess. I have a total farmer’s tan now but it was nice to get a little sun (especially since Luis pretty much has made sure we haven’t gotten any sun the last 2 years).

The rodeo was a blast, Sophia slept for the first hour but after she woke up she enjoyed it just as much as the other kids. Nicholas was in love with the bull riders and pretended he was riding a bull (the bulls were harsh last night and only 3 riders made it 8 seconds). Sophia loved the horses and she adored Pat Green. Princess and Sophia danced in their seats through all the songs (well, the ones we were there for at least). We left early because Nicholas was getting really tired, he fell asleep in Luis’ arms which is really unusual. So we made the long trek back to the car and got home at 11:30 last night. After a quick shower I put aloe on the kids and then showered and aloed myself and went to bed. My kids and I slept until 9:00 this morning and since we didn’t have enough sugar and crap yesterday I went got donuts for breakfast. No wonder my kids love grandma’s house so much.

Lunch with my posse!

Today I went to lunch with Mere, food is one of my favorite parts about coming to Houston. I went to Amazon Grill today and got an amazing grilled chicken and avocado sandwich, I was in heaven. Tonight I’m having world famous barbecue for dinner and tomorrow I want to try and squeeze in Pico’s, which is literally the best Mexican food ever, for lunch, mmmmm fajitas!
Well, I need to go get ready to go out tonight, so I’ll try to get on when I get home and blog.
Is there such a thing as drunk blogging? Maybe I’ll start a trend…lol.

Trish, if the girls like the carnival you should buy some of the half price tickets and save them for later. J and I are going to spend all day on March 20-something (whatever day Pat Green is playing) at the carnival with the kids, we could meet up and let the kids meet and ride rides and laugh at people, it’ll be fun.

Today is going to be a good day.

I know this because today is the day I go to Houston! I’m leaving in a few hours and I still have to get Sophia and I packed, we all have to be ready for the cook off tonight when we leave because we won’t have time to get ready once we get there, and I have to get the oil changed in the Hyundai. I have to stop by J’s house too since I borrowed one of her hoodies and she left the other at my house yesterday, I don’t want to leave her with no hoodies, its supposed to be chilly this weekend.
So much to do, so little time. So, I’m going to go but I’ll try and write in the morning and tell you about all the weird food I’m going to eat tonight. If I’m not able to post tomorrow then I’ll leave it to my wonderful friend J to guest blog for me. Toodles and everyone have a good weekend, I know I will.

I suck ass!!!

Well, I took my midterm after studying for hours upon hours and I got a 60. I am so upset, I literally cried. I have no chances of getting an A in this class and my chances of a B are looking pretty grim. This test should have been open book or less detailed. I don’t know anyone that can remember all the specifics of Newton’s laws, Kirchoff’s laws and Kepler’s laws. He told us we would need to memorize all formulas so I spent a great deal of time memorizing them and then come to find out, he gave them to us anyway. I know a lot of people will be very pleased about this but for someone that went and put forth the effort, this is very unnerving. What’s worse is that I can’t even sit here and wallow in my disappointment, I have 2 days to finish this week’s work so I can go to Houston this weekend. My only consolation is that come Thursday I will be sitting at our booth at the cook-off drinking very strong margaritas and eating copious amounts of barbecue, Thursday can’t come soon enough.
