Scare of a lifetime




Jackson passed out on us in the driveway the other day. Everything for the day was a blur. We thought he might have an ear infection but it turns out that he has a heart condition. Ok....so I can deal with that. What I can't deal with is that every vet that we have seen has told us, you are lucky, he could have just dropped dead. STOP!! I do not want to hear that again! And Jackson.......don't ever do that to your mother again, do you hear me?!

Thoughts on the day

This may be long but I need to let it out.

Do you remember me telling you about the X-Man rule for our football league? If a player is over 100lbs, they will have an X on their helmet and can only play OTHER X-MEN? Do you remember me telling you that I got Christopher up every morning at 6 a.m. to walk with me so he wouldn't be an X-MAn?
Well, we had our huge game yesterday against our biggest rivals and they had 2 X-men. We have none. So when the coaches approached our coaches w/ the rosters, Chris (he is our head coach) said, I'm sorry but we have no x-men so your 2 guys cannot play. They said all the other coaches let them and it wasn't a problem. Chris said , I'm sorry it is in the rule book, I can't do it. They were pissed. They wouldn't even shake Chris's hand at the end of the game, nice sportsmanship to show your kids, HUH?
So we wake up this morning to all kinds of e-mails from The Adams coaches. I found out that they broke the rule by playing some player longer than they should have (sorry, I don't know all the rules so that is the best reason I can give _And the commisioner said Chris should have been a little more slack with the rule Hello, you made up this rule. A rule is a fucking rule! I am so pissed off right now, you have no Idea! Then to top the day off.....we have a new player so he neede to be weighed before he played yesterday. Chris and I both set up the appt. with the commissioner for 9 a.m. yesterday in Pittsfield, (a 20 min drive), he had met the mother and son there and guess who doesn't show up.....The Commissioner. So Chris called him and he took the weight over the phone. Which is not proper protocal and he knows it. Thanks for letting me get this out. But the e-mail from one of the mothers really pissed me off.

So my horoscope, I think, is appropriate for today.

Leo
You cut to the chase more than once today, letting people know exactly what's on your mind without all the ceremony. Most appreciate it, but a few might be taken aback. They'll get over it soon!

George Clooney and girlfriend Sarah Larson were treated at the hospital Friday for injuries after the motorcycle they were riding was hit by a car in New Jersey.

Clooney, 46, suffered a hairline fracture of a rib and road rash, and Larson, 28, suffered a broken foot, his rep says.

They were treated at Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen, N.J., and released. Both were wearing helmets.

According to police, Clooney was driving his Harley-Davidson north on Boulevard East in Weehawken, N.J., at 3:30 p.m. when he collided with a 1999 Mazda Millenia. Clooney was passing on the right of the vehicle as it attempted to make a right turn on the two-lane road.

Larson appeared to have cuts on her face and an injured foot and was taken away by ambulance, says Weehawken police Sgt. Sean Kelly.

Clooney accompanied Larson in the ambulance to the hospital.

The Mazda driver, identified as Albert Sciancaledore, 27, of Weehawken, was uninjured.

Clooney told police he was driving in the right lane when the other driver sped up to try and pass him before making the right turn, according to Kelly. But Sciancaledore told police it was Clooney who was trying to pass cars in the right lane, Kelly says.

The crash remains under investigation.

I wish I had heard this when it happened.I found this on a message board today and thought it was good.




"George Carlin said it best about Martha Stewart .. "Boy, I feel a lot safer now that she's behind bars. O.J. Simpson and Kobe Bryant are still walking around; Osama Bin Laden too, but they take the ONE woman in America willing to cook, clean, and work in the yard, and they haul her fanny off to jail."

Samism.....

Sometimes I am not very discreet and say things I should probably keep to myself but Chris and I were talking about this one lady at the school who I do not like very much and I said, "We need to give her a nickname so the boys don't know who we are talking about, so let's call her FG (fatgirl)"...I know, not nice cause we all know I have issues with that. Anyways...Sam heard us and said, "Mom, the girl at the face painting was like that and it didn't bother me."

Out of the mouths of babes.

This quote was on a sign that we saw in New York yesterday. Chris and I had a good laugh.

My Feet. By, Christopher.

I love my feet.
They are very neat.
I wish my feet could eat.
They are smelly like rotten meat.
They are my little piggies.

Dad sent this to me via e-mail...

This cracked me up!!!!


After getting all of Pope Benedict's luggage loaded into the limo, (and
He doesn't travel light), the driver notices that the Pope is still
Standing on the curb.

"Excuse me, Your Holiness," says the driver," Would you please take
your seat so we can leave?"

“Well, to tell you the truth," says the Pope, "they never let me Drive
at the Vatican when I was a Cardinal, and I'd really like to drive
Today."


"I'm sorry, Your Holiness, but I cannot let you do that. I'd lose My
job! And what if something should happen?" protests the driver,
Wishing he'd never gone to work that morning.

"Who's going to tell? Besides, there might be something extra in It for
you," says the Pope with a smile.

Reluctantly, the driver gets in the back as the Pope climbs in Behind
the wheel. The driver quickly regrets his decision when, after Exiting
the airport, the Pontiff floors it, accelerating the limo to 105 Mph.
(Remember, he's German.)

"Please slow down, Your Holiness!" pleads the worried driver, but The
Pope keeps the pedal to the metal until they hear sirens. "Oh, dear
God, I'm gonna lose my license -- and my job!" moans the Driver.

The Pope pulls over and rolls down the window as the cop Approaches,
but the cop takes one look at him, goes back to his Motorcycle, and
gets on the radio.

"I need to talk to the Chief," he says to the dispatcher. The Chief
gets on the radio and the cop tells him that he's stopped a limo Going
a hundred and five.

"So bust him," says the Chief.

"I don't think we want to do that, he's really big," said the cop.

The Chief exclaimed, "All the more reason!"

"No, I mean really important," said the cop with a bit of Persistence.

The Chief then asked, "Who ya got there, the Mayor?"

Cop: "Bigger."

Chief: "The Governor?"

Cop: "Bigger."

Chief: "The President?"

Cop: "Bigger."

"Well," said the Chief, "Who is it?"

Cop: "I think it's God!"

The Chief is stumped, "You been drinking, John?"

Cop: "No Sir."

Chief: "Then what makes you think it's God?"

Cop: "He's got the Pope as a chauffeur

Busy week....

Well, Chris and I went to Mohegan Sun for an overnight and that was quite the adventure. We got lost going to the hotel, I got sick, we don't know if it was a bug or food problems...coleslaw,heehee!!! Then, someone opened our adjoining room door and freaked us out so I couldn't sleep all night. But the upside is we Won!! We came home w/ our $8oo and $300 extra! So that was a plus, finally!

I've been feeling crappy all week so hopefully I had the flu and didn't even know it! LOL! Our handyman George has been here all week. We are turning our garage into a den. It is coming along quicker than I thought.

Baseball has officially begun. Chris is head coach for Christopher, Asst. Coach for Sam and Zak has a scrimmage game tonight. So looks like we are keeping busy.

Today's Horoscope

Detach from an old point of view. Afterward, you'll see how much of this attitude was habit, and not what you truly believe. You may find yourself understanding an opposing argument, and agreeing with it.

Today's Horoscope

Let your true self shine. Sometimes you feel you have to apologize because you've had so many gifts and blessings in your life, but keeping your light under a bushel doesn't help anyone, least of all yourself.







****you do notice I only post the ones I like!! LOL!

March happenings

Well so far this month....Mom fell and dislocated her shoulder, was in the hospital for 2 days and will be in a sling for 6 weeks. The kids are healthy (shit, I probably just jinxed myself!) And St. Patrick's Day was Saturday after we had another major snowstorm that dumped 18 inches on us! We did make it to Uncle Michael's but guess who forgot the battery to her camera?

On the Horizon.....Chris is starting to enjoy his birthday week LOL! and on Friday we are going to Plymouth for a basketball tournament. Should be very interesting!!

A friend.....

Happy Birthday, Madeline!!!
Enjoy your day!!

I found this poem and I really liked it.


Without a friend like you
by Becca

Everyone needs a friend,
to love them through the years,
to help them laugh when they wanna cry,
to wipe away their tears.
someone who's there,
who they can call,
to pick them up,when they trip and fall.
for me, you are that person,that very special one,
you make me smile with all your ways,
so full of life and fun,
you have been here for me,since the very word go,
and it means more to me,
than you could ever know.
you offered me your shoulder,whenever i wanted to cry,
took me under your wings,when i was too scared to fly.
you're such a special person,
a friend thats just for me,
and without your strength, support and love,i don't know where I'd be.
i want to say a thank you,
for helping me get through,
and if you ever need me,I'd do anything for you.
when you laugh,I'll laugh too,
when you cry,I'll cry,
when you're scared,I'll hold your hand,
and watch your fears pass by.
when you want to talk,I'll hear what you have to say,
I'll forever sit by your side,and never will i stray.
if you need anything,
there's nothing i wouldn't do,cause where would i be in this world,without a friend like you?

Long weekend of basketball....

Well, Zak had 4 games this weekend and won one. His travel team is absolutely pathetic and it was embarrassing for them. Their coaches are awful and most of those kids are not team players. I feel bad for Zak cause he really puts his heart into it. On the other hand, Christopher had a game and he made a basket!! It was so cute....when he made it he looked right over at me beaming!! I, of course teared up!!

Good job guys! Hopefully the rest of Zak's tournaments will go easier!
