I made the cookies I mentioned in my previous post...oh my goodness...heaven!! Miranda helped me too, she had fun!! She had to leave before she got to taste them though. I was good and have only had one so far! I made four dozen and have them all packed up ready to go for today!!
I guess your supposed to take a 'before' picture of everything right? Don't you dig my built in cutting board? NOT! That just grosses me out and I cannot wait to get new countertops!!

The kids will be with their dad tomorrow through Sunday. My mom is driving to Colorado to see my brother and his family. I am going with Greg and his kiddos to two of his family dinners...wowza help me! Talk about a crazy way to meet everyone for the first time! I am NOT a cook/baker/Bettty Crocker/Martha Stewart by ANY means but I am going to make two batches of these and take them to both dinners. Hey I'm trying right? haha!!

When we did...this is what we found. We had accidentally ordered a toddler size!!! LOL They are so cute and tiny but unfortunately my daughter follows in my shoe size and they are just a tad (said sarcastically) too small *giggles*

Wow, that was the longest sentence ever huh?
My boss is back today though, she's been off the past 2 weeks on her honeymoon. I'm sure she's playing serious catch up. I sent her a quick instant message welcoming her back and haven't heard from her since!
Don't you hate it when you have a pet that doesn't feel good? Kasey, my old girl, has an upset stomach. I can hear it gurgling, poor thing. She ate grass when she went out last so you know what that has led to...ugh. Usually when I pet her, Maddie goes insanely jealous and jumps on you, bites your arm, basically anything to say HEYYY LOOKIE MEEEE! Well today after Kasey lost her cookies, I was gently petting her back and Maddie was standing there looking at Kasey wondering what the hell she was doing. Then Maddie slowly came up and put her head under my arm to get close to both of us to basically check on her. It was so damn cute.
Nothing more of importance to report, just another typical Monday :)

I'm getting SO tired of taking Maddie out on the leash but until I get a fence or something I have to. She got out the other night and I honestly don't know how she didn't get his by this truck that was flying down the street. I had a guy come to give me a quote on a fence today. He measured the yard and I actually gave him two options of what I'd like to do, the full yard or part of the yard. He hasn't emailed me the quote yet but I'm anticipating $2500-$3000...UGH!! PLEASE let it be lower :)
I got some really good feedback for music yesterday from here as well as Facebook. I loaded my iPod up last night and was jamming the whole way to and from dinner with Greg and his kiddos. They still like me oh and I got invited to go with them for Thanksgiving EEK! I am sure I will go because it's either that or I stay home alone. I could go to Jess's too cuz she loves me and invited me!
Tomorrow is Friday which means NO WORK! Remember I took every Friday off through the end of the year??? Wahooooo!!! No plans so I'll probably veg on the couch til the kiddos get home.
We really have no plans for the weekend but I think I am going to offer to have Jen's kiddos stay the night at least one of the nights because she having gall bladder surgery today and I'm sure could use a peaceful house. Maybe we will go roller skating or something fun like that!!!

I did some calculating this morning and to reach my goals that I mentioned before, I only need to lose 1.5 lbs a week! I was thinking I was going to have to kill myself for it!! Realizing that is all I need to do made me super happy because when I weighed after my first week and had only lost 1.5 lbs, I was a little upset but hey...I'm right on target!!!

Remember when I won the contest from Tabitha over at Fresh Mommy??? Well my friend the UPS man brought me my gift today!!!!
So then as I was in wonder of my new delight, I turn around to see this...Maddie busted with Miranda's boot. Notice the basket of dog toys right behind her even! UGH silly dogs, boots are for girls!

But now I am going to go get ready to go out tonight. I am SO excited!! I have reconnected with so many classmates on Facebook and come to find out, there are actually quite a few around KC so we are having a mini reunion tonight! I am not sure how many are going but I do know about 4 other girls are. Heck, even if it's just us we will have fun catching up. The funny part is, they are in the class after mine so I'm the old fart of the group!
I'll take pictures and post them tomorrow! TGIF!

But not lately....Maddie bolts out the door and looks immediately for a squirrel, jogger, biker whatever so that she can chase them. She will come back after I scream at her long enough but damn, I'm too old to be chasing them! Kasey will slowly follow Maddie as well so then it leads to me chasing Maddie then once I have her back in the house, going back and rounding up slow poke Kasey.
I have priced dog runs and that might be what I have to go with (if not just hooking them up to a
stake while they are outside) after I get my fence quote on Friday. I have a feeling it is going to be too much for me to afford. Luckily how my yard is set up, I really only need two sides of it. My house and the neighbors fence would make up the other two sides.
Here are some pictures of my lovely dogs....grrrr LOL

The kids and I went to our high school football game last night. It was the Bi-District game. Paola won so now they will play on Saturday in the Regional game. Good luck boys!! It was cool to see how many people came out 1) on a Tuesday and 2) on that night of all nights.
My son has decided to try wrestling...ugh. I am not a wrestling fan what so ever but this is kind of a trial. He has gone to practice this week and will get to wrestle in a match on Thursday. I secretly am hoping he gets his butt whooped and he hates it but I know in my head that he is going to love it. He talks NON STOP about it right now so maybe he will be a late bloomer and do well. I guess we will see!
I haven't been good at updating you on how the kids and I are doing in my football pick'em. As of right now through week 9 we stand like this -
Me - in a two way tie for 3rd (my brother and sister in law are 1st and 2nd)
Kyler - in 9th
Miranda - in a two way tie for 10th
Not too bad for 18 people playing!!

On a brighter note, Miranda is feeling much better. I spent $20 at the doctor's yesterday to tell me that it's just her normal allergies and to continue with the Zyrtec and to add some over the counter cough stuff. Wow, I could've told ya that but I wanted to just make sure because had I not taken her, I'm sure it would've been worse. That's how it usually goes right??
On an even brighter note, I scheduled all of my vacation days! I basically have off every Friday off through the end of the year starting next week! I threw in a couple of Mondays and other days too since some Fridays were already holidays. Yay!!
