Poker in the Back

Liquor in the Rear

I love that saying! Think about it ;) I learned it one night at JD's Bar, they made up a song about it all.

So I finally learned to play poker tonight!!! Now I can play with my family and not look like some clueless ass! My brother will be proud. My mother will be proud. And so will my father! But mostly I learned so I can have something in common with my brother. And some odd friends of mine :)

Florida is wonderful! We are having a great time. It's starting to really warm back up. Just perfect for us.

Yesterday we spent the day with my grandmother the girls Nana. Boy oh Boy memories were made. We took a trip to the The Florida Aquarium ( We had so much fun. The girls were just in awe. Esp. Gabriella since she really starting to understand a little bit more and explore with her wonderful dark eyes!

Well as you can see I am no longer in FL and somehow this didn't get posted! We are home! Had a great time. It was great seeing my grandparents and spend time with them both. We are happy to be back and getting back into our everyday life!

I'll write more later! Glad to be back!

In Florida

We made here to Sunny Florida!!! What a trip so far. I think I've burned more calories and toned more muscles then I can at home at the gym.

We had a rough start. We got stuck in major storm traffic on the way to Metro. Got there and I only had 20 min to check in before I could make it to the gate. Guess what, the lines were over 1.5 hours long. No one and I mean NO one would help me at the airport. Picture this, me, 2 kids in a double stroller, car seat on my back, 1 full HUGE suitcase that looks more hiking bag, 1 empty small suitcase on top of the stroller, a carry one bag (full of new things for the girls and diapers) and a laptop bag. Really isn't that a site that looks like it needs help?!?! The airport workers told me"I am sorry but how is this my problem. You need to wait like everyone else and no we can't help you." Ok I know we were late but how about helping a women out. Oh by the way 1 kid screaming her head off! I called Dave and told him to turn around and get me. We would miss the flight. A man behind me "Either you get off the phone or I'll remove you from the lines myself. You are holding up the line" Oh yeah buddy, there are like 20-30 more people in front of me and I AM HOLDING UP THE LINE. THANK GOD for this one women who had 2 kids same age as mine. "My husband is in the front of the line we are next but please take our spot and please let us help you!" THANK YOU THANK YOU I can go to Florida!

Why oh WHY does Metro have the crappiest airports around?!?! I was in the old airport. And no they don't give you a break. I had to now take 2 kids OUT of the stroller and CLOSE the stroller down! THANK YOU to Adrianna for being the helpful kid she is and helped me out. Gabriella on the other hand had other plans, she took off! We got though it and on the plane. Of course everyone is just adoring these sweet kids of mine while I sweat the fat off my body. I had just looked like I just came out of my kickboxing class. Hair was dripping wet! And not from the shower either :)

Plane ride was better then I thought! The kids were great!! We even sat on the run way for an hour and was delayed. But they did wonderful. Adrianna was far from good. I was shocked! Gabriella was Gabriella and we got to Florida without anyone killing us!

Florida, boy oh boy it was hot as heck when we got here. But I am not complaining. We got to Grandma's place and swam before we could do anything. Gabriella napped however while I spent one on one with Ms. A. She even swam on her own!!! (shocked here again!) Gabriella joined us later on to swim but only for a few. She had a rough day, not sure where she was at and what was going on. We played some more and went to bed...Adrianna had different plans as far as sleeping but we got though it and went to bed at 3am!! The 1st for this mama since my kids have always slept all night long. So now I get what my friends and others were talking about. God bless those who get no sleep....

Got up today, went for a 2 hour walk with the girls. It's chilly today but feels great to me. Was 64 and windy! Better then home I've heard. We napped for 3 hours, I haven't napped like that in almost 3 years! We went shopping with Nana (the girls Great Grandma) and just hung out at home. My grandpa - MacO who has cancer is hanging in here. He had another round of chemo and toughing it out. But I can tell he's tired and I think personally he wants us to go away! lol But non less he's enjoying the girls and they do brighten up the day. Adrianna I think knows he's not doing well since she always want to help him out. God this child amazes each and every other day. I didn't even tell her since she is only 2 after all. She loves to give him kisses and hugs. And makes him laugh.

All and all I am glad we made it here and that we are here. Life is so short these days. Mind as well spend it with some old geezers :) By the way, Dave isn't with us. He goes back to work next week!! FINALLY!!!! But we do miss him. More then I thought I would. And it's only been 1 day!

Tomorrow we have a fun day plan and I can't Wait...

Till then...peace

I finally found my blog

I couldn't find my page for the life of me since I couldn't remember which 100 emails account I used then of course all the passwords that I have saved in my head.

Today was just another day...I had to work today and I got a lot done at work. But boy did it give me a headache! I was to scrapbook tonight but just didn't feel like going since I was tired and not in the mood. Plus tomorrow I have the 3rd Annual Mardi Gras Gala for the Epilepsy Foundation! My mom is now on the board and is determine to fight this and we are going to go and help her! I get to get dress up again and Dave gets to wear a tux! Like prom all over again expect no drama and limo :) Dave's wonderful Aunt Mary and his cousin Marissa are watching the girls tomorrow so I know they too will have a great time! So I thought it was best I come home tonight. Of course it lead to bad things for me. I went on a Wendy binge tonight :( Tomorrow is another day right???

Adrianna has been doing so great on the potty. Of course she doing it all on her own. Some days are better then others but we aren't pushing it. She does what she wants to do and when. I am just taking her lead with this. She just talking more and more and more everyday. And still cont. to love dancing and reading.

Gabriella, what can I say about her. God love her! We all love having her around. She sure keeps us busy and on our toes. She loves loves loves to sing and beat the crap out of people. I am not lying either. I've had bloody lips, eyes and more from her. She loves to head butt people instead of giving normal kisses! I wouldn't trade her for anything.

Dave's busy with the kids and soon will be back to work. And our lives will be back to normal!! Finally peace and quiet with him gone. But he'll surely be missed (well for a while anyways). I am looking forward to spending time with the girls again this spring and summer!

Well I am happy to be back and I guess I had alot to say huh??!?
