Do you ever REALLY get caught up?

To say I've been a bit overwhelmed lately, just may be the understatement of the century. I haven't been able to get it together to get this blog back in working order. Unfortunately, that is just ONE more thing that feeds my feelings of being overwhelmed. SO, tonight, it's me and the computer in the bed!
Having computer time has become a little difficult in the Acree Abode. Dalton and Savannah have been introduced to Facebook. I've been holding them off for the last 10 months or so. I can't say I'm completely at ease even now. They have been begging for Facebook pages for months and I just didn't want them on there. Jeff and I thought long and hard about it and I made him get on and explore and he finally talked me into it. Needless to say, they are now on and it has severely limited my computer usage. Apparently, they really were way behind the times because ALL of their friends are on there.

How about a little OBHS Homecoming? Haleigh, you were positively stunning and we can't wait to do it all over again Friday night! (It was raining cats and dogs the entire week of Homecoming so they did it inside. Now that it's not raining they are gonna do a repeat on the Football Field just as Homecoming should be.)

Then of course we had a little Halloween.... Meet my little Indiana Jones.....

And how about my little Pediatrician?

We had a really fun Halloween. Savannah's friend had her birthday party that night so we went to their house and Trick or Treated in that neighborhood. It was full of many friends of both of the kids and even some of mine and Jeff's.
For some reason, pictures are taking FOREVER to upload tonight so you are just gonna have to trust me on the rest of this.
I still don't have cabinets but I DO have sheetrock in the kitchen now. I very kindly called the cabinet gentleman on Monday and diplomatically let him know that if I didn't have cabinets by Friday, I was coming to his house to SHIT on his kitchen counter. I told him I would be happy to shit on my own, but I can't have a counter because I don't have cabinets. He's called me everyday since to give me an update and from what I understand we can pick them up tomorrow. Sometimes you've gotta just break things down for folks. Just sayin...
What's up with the darn ladybugs? We are on ladybug overload around here. Is this a normal "country" thing?
Got a few health issues going on...what else is new, huh? I went in because my hip was hurting and an MRI and CT scan later, I have degenerative disc disease, kidney stones and a cyst in an interesting spot. Still don't know what's wrong with my hip and after all that, I don't care to find out any more. So, back on the 'roids and just loving that. I guess tomorrow I'm gonna check into getting a room at the mental health institute and we'll just see if these stones pass. HA. PRAYER. That's all I know to do.

Whoa Nellie! TONS of stuff has happened since that last post. I think I even have pictures to document all of the nutty stuff that's been going on. OF COURSE, when I finally have time to sit down and tell all about it (don't you love this extra hour), my card reader for the camera is at work. I had to go take pictures of a house Friday and I left it plugged into my computer at work. Sorry:( I'll get them uploaded tomorrow, barring any strange new developments on the home front.

It's a little crazy around here and, well, I started to say the nerves were wearing thin with the whole NO CABINETS (thus no kitchen) situation, but what the hell, I should just be honest. The nerves are worn down, worn off, rotted, stink and some donkeys came by and pooed on them. I've been really good through all of this. Remember a few weeks ago, when I came home and my kitchen sink was in the ditch. HA HA, yeah, those were the good days. This past week, I didn't have water for 24 hours. It's hard enough to wash dishes in the bathroom and mop out of the bathtub, try that situation out with NO WATER at all. We used the bathroom in the backyard. I wish I was one of those people that could just always be happy and live for the adventure that each new day brings. FOLKS, I'M OVER IT. The adventure has been fun, but it's time to move on. Mr. Cabinet dude has until Wednesday and then he shall meet a wrath he has never even dreamed of. I let Jeff know, he may want to warn the guy. For the past two Fridays, I've been told I'd have cabinets. I've picked out tile for the floors and countertops. I've picked out sinks, faucets, appliances, and new lighting! Unfortunately, NONE of those things matter without cabinets. Wednesday, sucka. Wednesday.

The little rodent problem we were having seems to be a thing of the past. I'm sure we'll have "incidents" from time to time, but we put poison out and only caught one more in the eleven traps that we had set. We caught that one in the attic. I am no longer scared of my back rooms. And yes, the traps are still set. They give me a feeling of security that I apparently need.

We had too much fun last night for Halloween. I have some fabulous pictures of Indiana Jones and new Doctor in the family. I'll get them on here tomorrow.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I hope this week brings A LOT of workers in and out of my house and much construction!! Bring it ON (cuz I'm ready for it to be over). I miss cooking and eating at home. I'm ready to get on with life instead of living on a construction site. Jeff had the nerve to ask me Friday if we could have Thanksgiving at our house. HA. Jeff, you are so funny!
