Fun Links!!


I am tired today!! I am finally back on the ice after a three week tailbone recovery! I felt like a rusty-old skater! My edge work was sloppy and I cheated on my jumps! But BOY WAS IT FUN!! A group of us regulars were fooling around trying crazy kid moves!! I actually did bunny hops and lunges, straight from the 4-5 year old skater class!! But it was a great workout - my legs felt like jello after I got off the ice! When I wasn't being silly I actually did manage to do some jump combinations - Waltz-salchow, waltz-toe loop and waltz,toe,salchow - hey, I'm 30 - it impresses me!!!

There is an adult skating competition this weekend here in GA - and some of the adults asked if I was skating!! Um, good for the ego - but no. I am not competing. I just bought a skating skirt, you want me to pick skating music too?? (By the way, anyone have any suggestions for music without words?)

The girls love being back at school. But little A was so tired today, she just kept crying . . . not a hurt cry, but an exhausted wail. We have also had two nights of really loud thunderstorms in the middle of the night, so neither the girls nor, dh and I have truly slept all night this week. They are napping right now, so hopefully this afternoon will be better!!

Okay, so Webslinger is getting ready to go to the hospital, right now as we speak!! I am so excited for her and her family!! Now, there is a family that will go without sleep this week!! That is what a newborn will do - keep everyone up!! So much fun, I am a little jealous!! Just a little. Okay I am outie, Karen

Where in the World was I last night??

I am going to give you a couple of clues from where I was last night. . .

1. It was loud. . .

2. I saw women with mullets or big bangs with tapered leg jeans. . .

3. I saw men in tight leather pants with ripped t-shirts and hair that hadn't been cut since 1986 . . .

4. The band used to dress like girls with gobs of makeup and spandex . . . and had a big following in the 80's . . .

5. Bret Michaels, Rikki Rockett, C.C. DeVille . . .

6. If you ate the name of the band - it would kill you!!

Did you guess????

Yup, A POISON concert!! It was wild!! And so much fun! Am I joking, no!! I never really realized just how many Poison songs I knew!! So, how did I get there? One of my friends had an extra ticket and couldn't find anyone else that wanted to go!! So I volunteered - and I was entertained!! Now, honestly, dh should have gone, he had already been to three Poison concerts when he was a kid. (Picture, middle school dh - rocking out!! Too cute!) But I had a ball - and I was home by 12:30 - those old men just couldn't rock out for too long!! I did enjoy Unskinny Bop, Every Rose has its Thorn, Your Mama don't Dance and Nothin' but a Good Time!

But the people that went to the concert were TOO FUNNY! It was the best people watching I have done in a long time!! Most of the people that were there, looked like they had not changed since Poison had a number one hit!! It was a time warp - back to a very ugly time! Mullets, c'mon women! Big HAIR! Bleached HAIR!! We went with two hairdresses, and they were afraid if it rained, we would get swept away in a sea of hairspray and perm solutions! Now the men either had long, nasty hair or no hair! And I saw my fair share of beer bellies!! In honor of Poison's 20 year career of loud, repetitive music I have a few old Poison pics for you!!

Busy Day in Southeastern Virginia

Well, I am sad to say that another felon is involved with the Virginia Tech!! Not a Vick, but a gun toting, shooting, murdering inmate. Yikes, scary stuff. And classes started today too? Gosh, when I was a freshman, I bet my mother would have turned around from NOVA to come and picked me up! But wow, no classes - lockdown in the dorm? Can I say PARTY time!! (Okay, freaky -scary party time!!)

And Kelli - I hope you are cooking your meat well enough!! Lynchburg Meat Company Recalls 900 Pounds of Beef - ooh!!

And now it won't stop 'bolding' so I am done with this post!!

THE SALE is over!!

Whew, what a week! I am so glad that the club consignment sale is over!! Amazing, even with the new location and publicity issues, we still managed to make around $44, 000 in 6 hours!! I am really HAPPY about that! Okay, so the club only gets to keep 10% of that, we still made a tidy little profit for events and charity work!! I am very proud!! We were competing with about 7 other consignment sales this weekend, but since we often have two or three of everything, we seem to attract alot of repeat buyers each year!
I am exhausted though! Friday, I did start with a massage at Spa Sydell, shopping and lunch, but then the madness began! We managed to transform a gymnasium that houses three gyms into a packed sale!! We have so much stuff - it was crazy! We had a seperate cashier area - that did not have air conditioning, but, heh, nothing can go as planned everytime!! And after getting home at midnight on Friday, I was up and out of here by 6:00A.M. Saturday - for the sale day itself!! And if I never hear anyone say "KAREN" again, I will be fine. But there was only one wacky customer, but I didn't have to set the police on her! Well, I should have set the fashion police on her, she was wearing overly-washed purple slouch socks with black shorts. OH. Now I do know that stretch pants and long shirts with belts are stylish, but I am not ready for the 'slouch' sock. Those just . . . I am not that forward thinking yet. (I did try on stretch pants and an oversized shirt on Friday, but NO!! I am just too short to pull that look off!! LOL, all 5'2 of me!)
So that is my update for today, it is nice not to have anything to do . . . just a lazy day with a long sleep-in since dh got up with the girls!! He has had such a good time with them this weekend. He took off Friday, and took them to the jumpzone and then shopping! Yesterday, they went to a nature preserve for a 'hike,' came to the sale and then went shopping again (his idea of shopping consists of CompUSA and Fry's Electronics,) but hey, the girls had a blast. They keep asking me what they are going to do today, yikes, I can't keep up with all that!!

So have a good day! Talk to you all later! (Oh, and I was tired off the old blog look, so it got a make-over today, even I am out of style, at least my blog can change!)

More pics . . .
My girls have had a wonderful time seeing munchkin and bees this summer! They asked yesterday how long it would be until we saw them again, and sadly I had to answer, next summer and that will be about 250 days, and they said "Yeah!!" Because they have no clue, just how long 250 days will seem!!

Some pics . . .

here are some of the fun photos that I took in June!! And at this rate, you will get the pictures from the zoo, in, say, December!! Just kidding, I am really starting to get photoshop under control!! And I am on my second glass of Pinot - so these should be really fun tonight!

Nana and the girls - At the River House!

Papa and Girls at the pool!

Granny, PaJoe and the girls!

DH at the Pool!

'B' the DRIVER - so SCARY!

I have spent sooooo much time on this computer during the last few days, but have I had time to update my blog, no! Being President of my local twins club and Secretary of the state twins club leaves me working on the computer and not playing. :( But I love what I do, I love helping people out - so I really am not complaining!!

We had an awesome time with Kelli and her kids. My girls keep asking where bees and munchkin are . . . I think they expected them to return after a few days. We shopped, went to the zoo, went to the jumpzone, had a girls' night out, drank Woodchuck, Kelli and I stayed up way too late hanging out, and when I went to bed last night at 11:30 I felt like a loser!! We also traveled to see Webslinger in Macon. And when we got home A and B asked me where Bug was - they thought that she was following us to our house!!! Too cute!

I really want us all to have a reunioun in B-Burg next summer!!! Lets start planning!! I need some woodchuck and a couple of Swisher Sweets - maybe we could rent out club 32 for a weekend?? NOW that could either be very cool - or eww, how many other college age kids have lived there since we did?? Never mind, how about the new alumni center!! And Coronas with lime - that sounds better!!

So I am sitting here typing while I am watching BBrother - that we tivo'd last night. I LOVE This show - call me strange - I know. But c'mon the summer is full of crappy tv - and I need some down-time. Dr.Will rocks, Howie is a complete idiot, and Boogie is going to the end - without even trying! And for those of you who don't know what I am talking about - check it out - it is not too late to become addicted!

So I am out of here, the twins club sale is this weekend, so I doubt that I will get to blog again this week. I have a spa morning on Friday!! Can't wait, but it will be followed by over 24 hours of hard work!! So have a great week, love ya' all! K'out!

Now, I can finally post all the pics from our trip, oh, two months ago, since I figured out the save technique!! So here is the ONE picture that I have been trying to resize!!
Can you tell that my two girls adore munchkin??

So what do you look like if you get up at 3:00 AM??

So I am a little tired now . . . who knows why I woke up. Now I am a little punchy - and I really wanted to figure out how to post my pictures on blogger from my digital camera. I finally found the web-save feature on my photoshop!! YEAH!! So here is crazy me and my kids!! Is that a candy bar B is holding? Oh boy, and I have to clean this place today

4:25 AM

So it is 4:25 AM - yes, you read that right. I woke up and cannot go back to sleep. So I have come downstairs to drink a cup of tea, surf the internet for a little while and 'talk' to you all. I also found some fun stuff to share with you . . .

First, although I cannot enjoy ice cream, maybe you know somebody that can:
Oh, I wish I was not lactose intolerant!

Second, even if I can't enjoy ice cream, I could make my house smell like it:

And now I am watching Project Runway. I love this show - it lets me see a world that I will never be a part of! I can sew, sure, but design an outfit and build it in 2 days?? No way!! One of the designers is from the ATL - his name is Michael Knight (just like in the tv show Knight Rider - and having the same name as one of my favorite 80's shows is an extra bonus in my book!!) And why is this show on at 4:00 am? Don't know - but every other channel was paid programming. And as much as I love the space bag - I just cannot watch another bag, get the air sucked out of it!!

Well, I am hoping that I can fall back asleep now, after my nice cup of tea . . . we will see. Love ya' K out

Me Jealous!!

I am so jealous of the fun that Kelli and Annette had last weekend. I can barely blog, b/c I am so jealous and that is not a good thing. I can't even ice skate tomorrow since I fell last week. My tailbone still twinges when I pick something up or bend down!! OH, I am whining again!!

Nothing new here . . . so here are some weird ebay auctions for you to surf:
Winter Coat
Kelli's Next Scrapbooking Camera?
Cute Pug

Let's Start a Band!!

This made me laugh so hard, if these guys have a band - why can't we?? C'mon everyone, come to the ATL and we can do it!! I'll supply the old appliances to bang-on!! Oh, my!!

Why do we have a tailbone??

Well, I forgot the camera. Surprised? I wasn't! I am lucky to remember my keys! However, good thing I didn't remember because on the first lap around with the girls I was turning, caught an edge and fell, once again, on my tailbone. Now I cannot bend over - or sit without that horrible twinge of pain. I know, why skate? Good question!! And my shoulders are stiff from trying to catch myself as I was falling backward . . . okay, pity me now!!

I was supposed to take the girls to an amusement park today but when I woke up this morning - there was no way . . . so now we are having a quiet day full of games and puzzles - so that mommy doesn't have to move too much!!

Well, I hope Kelli and Skettie have fun this weekend - I am so jealous of you all on your escape to the B'burg!! Call me from outside The Balcony - or Sharkies - or whatever they are called now!!! Summer and I will just have to do something down here in GA - when she is no longer pregant in this heat!! (I don't know how you are doing it sweetie!!)

Have a good weekend!!

The INSANITY - 2 days in a row!!

Wow, two days in a row!! I must be crazy!! Anyway, I really have nothing funny or cute to tell you today. I am taking the girls skating at 11:00 which is always fun! They are really starting to like it - and the concession stand that serves popcorn!! I am going to bring my camera today - hopefully I will get some good pics and figure out how to post them!! I have not managed to shrink any of the pictures from my new camera successfully yet to post them here. So I will put that on my ever increasing, never ending to-do list!!

But as usual I do have a link for you! This is a video link and boy, do these star wars loving film people have too much time on thier hands. But it is worth the surf by if you have quick internet access! Try this Link!!
Have a good day - I might have pics later!! Karen OUT

Beautiful Link

Hi! Well it has been a long time since I blogged - and that seems to be a repeated theme around here!! But I found this link today and I thought they were too beautiful not to share with everyone! This is the only one that I could get to copy to my blog - please check out this LINK!

So what have we been doing around here?? Between twins club stuff, the twin sale and ice skating - not too much!! A and B are really looking forward to going back to school. They don't go until the end of August though. I could have sworn it was earlier!!

Well, Kelli - is on the phone with me . . . so I am going to go!
