Oh My I am SOOO Behind...

Here is some of the catching up I have to do....

Thank you Pink,Green and Southern for my AWARD! This put a smile on my face this morning!!!! The rules are I have to tell you 6 things that make me happy and tag six blogs as winners!

OK, here goes...
Top Six Things That make Me Happy....
1. My adorable children (adorable when they are not screaming, fighting and buying random things on ebay...tell ya later)
2. Titan Boy's New Wheels on the Titan...(Oh that makes him happy not me oops)
3. All My Smiling Employees showing up for work on time
4. Customers with cash in their pockets to buy stuff in the store!
5. My absentee ballot all done and ready to go in the mail.
6. Oh and shimmer tights and leotards (Curious check out The Lawyer's Wife or Hair Girl for more details)

Ok so maybe these are not all the things that make me happy but the ones on the top of todays list!

Now to Tag 6 Bloggers...*** I will have to get back to this part cause I can't find my list!

Okay, 2nd TAG of the Week...
Mom on the Run tagged me with
"Fourth of Fourth". I pick the 4th picture in the 4th folder, tell you about it and then tag 4 people.

This would be a picture of Titan Boy in our annual Easter Lawn Tractor race at a neighbors house! I couldn't be more proud. We never win the race but we always get Best in Show cause our orange lawn tractor has a hood ornament and lady silhouette stickers on the flaps! WOO HOO!

Now I tag:

Kids and Computers!

So late this afternoon I am helping a customer at the store. Sweet lady. She and I have been working on a project for her bedroom for a couple of weeks now. Anyway, my pocket starts vibrating and I check to make sure its not my children trying to get a hold of me. (please know that I only interrupt a customer if it is my children not just to chit chat on the phone)

Ok so here are the two emails I got...
#1 You Have Won! Ebay Item #1234567 is yours!
#2 Invoice for Ebay Item # 1234567

Ok, I am at work and have not bid on anything on ebay in months. So at first I think it is a scam. I have bought computers and cameras on ebay before but somehow my ship to address was in Malaysia, when I live in GA.

Oh no this was not a mistake or a scam. I am now the proud owner of a Battle Set of Bakugans. If you are lucky enough not to know what those are they are the hottest thing in the world to an 8 year old boy. They also cost $40 on ebay but $20 at Target.

I immediately call home. Get Super Nanny on the phone and find out Mini Tahoe #1 is playing outside but before that he was on the computer. I ask her to put him on the phone....

TG: Mini what were you doing on the computer?
MT#1: Oh playing games and looking up Bakugans. I saw a cool battle pack.
TG: Ugh, did you buy it?
MT#1: NO, how could I do that? I just pushed the arrow button to see more pictures.
TG: Ugh, you bought them. That arrow said "Buy IT Now".
MT#1: OH, um, oh, are they coming in the mail? It's no big deal mom it's only $40.
TG: Do you have $40? Cause that is alot of money.
MT#1: No, but since they are coming anyway can I have them?
TG:?????????? We will talk about it when I get home.
MT#!: OK Mom. I love you!

Great! Turns out my computer saves my ebay passwords, etc and he was able to buy himself some new Bakugans! I emailed the seller hoping to play into his sympathys but somehow I doubt it. What Mini doesn't know is I already bought that set and they are in the dining room drawer to be his next reward for good numbers at school!

The best part of all is when Titan Boy got home he was talking to mini#1 about computer usage etc ...
TB: Mini you need to be very careful when you are on Ebay....
MT#1: Dad what is Ebay?

Guess that answers everything!

Crazy then, Crazier Now

Over the past few months I have been reconnecting with old friends. My best friend from growing up, guy I had a crush on in middle school, youth group friends just to name a few. Now the great thing about this has been the friendships I have rekindled and the new friendships I have made by meeting spouses etc, but some of these people have just lost a few "important" pieces to the puzzle over the years and have gone completely crazy....

For example....
1. Very Cute Guy I had a crush on in High School
Then: Super Bad Boy with a criminal record (nothing really bad just teenager stuff)
Now: Married with a baby and a total jump to the other side with a huge emphasis in religion and clean living with herbs and vitamins

2. Friend from childhood who thinks we all want copies of her "glamour shots".

3. This is my favorite...Youth Group Guy who has always been odd.
Then: Older guy hanging with younger girls to be cool I guess, we just used him for the free rides
Now: Turns out he had a big crush on my dear friend (who is now married and lives in another state) and has recently found her using one of the many internet based profile sites. Anyway, he lives in another country now and is sending her song lyrics and poems, telling her she has screwed his world all up again, comments on all her pictures, etc. etc. Basically he has become a cyber "stalker".

Wanna know the best part?

She doesn't even remember who he is! Yep,she is drawing a total blank! And he wants to know why she won't respond to his emails!!!!

SO have you had any fun meeting up with old friends lately? If so I would love to here about it!
