Idol Night ALWAYS Rocks!

I LOVE MUSIC!! I love American Idol!! Lelania and I decided to have a little celebration tomorrow night. SOOOO...we are having an American Idol Finale Party/Last Day of School Celebration!! How awesome is that? I'm so excited. Jeff is off work this week, so we put him in charge of the festivities. He actually went shopping today. By the way, I LOVE DAVID COOK. It's a really complicated relationship he and I have. I won't be upset if he doesn't win, but I really want him to.

Jeff is sitting across the room from me texting his no one tonight. That's always fun! He thinks if I'm blogging I'm not paying attention.

OK, on to other things. Lelania's son Michael came and worked for me today. He delivered bags with goodies in them to neighborhoods surrounding my office. I've had the bags ready for awhile sitting in the floor and they finally got out today!! Yeah!! That was a relief. I also had some commercial help today which turned out to ROCK. By the way, I am scheduled to take my test next Thursday the 29th. Better start praying now. I need all the help I can get.

Medical Updates....they aren't so good. My Uncle Joe is in ICU tonight. He had a heart cath done today and things went a little crazy. He has a lot of blockage. They did put a stint in one side of his neck today. The other side they are going to treat with medication. He has a blockage in his leg that they couldn't fix today because things got a little hairy. His throat started to bleed and so did his nose so that landed him a nice cozy spot up in the ole ICU. He is very frail to begin with so this is just not good. Only two people can see him every four hours. My mother (she did come home) is about to go NUTS. She is in cleaning overdrive. He needs our prayers.

Lelania's mom is still not doing well. Everyday that passes is another emotion for Lelania to deal with. I pray for her mom daily, but I know she is being taken care of. It is Lelania that I am worried about. She's just angry and I don't blame her. Her mom is not in pain but the future is unclear. That's causing a lot of pain for her Dad and her and her children. I wish there was more I could do, but I don't know what to do. Once again, I can just ask for prayers.

How about this thing I found on my kitchen counter yesterday? It came home from school with Dalton.

I forgot what he called it. It had something to do with grass. I called it phallic.

It's some kind of project they did and he keeps watering it. I'm not sure how long I'm gonna be able to stare at this thing. I really try to support the kids in their projects, but this one is really pushing the envelope.
This thing is right by my kitchen window. I have some new little bluebirds that have been hanging out on my trellis outside of my kitchen window. There are two of them. I named them Chiquita and Banana. Don't ask, it's really an interesting story but it's kinda long. Today, Dalton found the nest! It's outside under the side porch. We got the ladder out this afternoon and he looked in the nest when the birds weren't there very careful not to touch anything. Check it out. I love the little birds.

I'm not real fond of having a bird nest under my side porch but I love the little birds. They are so pretty.

I got some hummingbird feeders today at the store. I had to go buy teacher gifts and picked these nice little feeders up while I was at it. I mixed up the food to put in them and Dalton helped me get them out in the flower bed. Hopefully they will be mulched by the end of the weekend.

Here are my cute little feeders!!

I think I'm turning into my Grandmother. I even decided tonight that I wanted to go to the Farmer's Market this weekend. I cooked tonight and decided I wanted some fresh veggies. Tonight I cooked roasted chicken, asparagus, corn, sweet peas and black eyed peas. Yum Yum. Project 125 is now within single digits! Woo Hoo.
I told the kids their rooms had to be cleaned by Friday and that I was going to kill the next dog that went upstairs. Now, I'm a bad mother again. Dalton took me seriously and started to cry. He's not been taking his meds, but I feel about a half inch tall. Kids...I learn something new everyday. Once they get out of school, I pray things will be better. I just feel like I'm running ragged right now. Savannah is worn out from cheering and gymnastics and school. Dalton quit taking his meds and isn't coping well and I just can't take much more either. I did take last weekend to refocus and it has helped but boy I could sure stand to catch a break right now.
It's now 9 p.m. and I have to go to Wal-Mart. I got all of the teacher gifts today but didn't get any cards, so here I go.
Hug those babies, they are tired too and share your love. It's the right thing to do.

Didn't know you had a blog. How cool, now I can come to your website and keep up with your family. HA funny how life changes.I just started one myself, tired of hearing Mel talk about hers and how I need to get one. I haven't told anyone about it yet, I'm still learning, this whole computer thing is crazy to me. Check in on you later.
