Facebook Question

One of the pages I like is Coca Cola. They posted this question yesterday.
If red represents Coca-Cola what color represents you? My answer is orange. It's bright and cheerful but not as vibrant as yellow. I asked my kids this question too. Jessie said black at first and I can see that. Of course she's 12 going on 13 so she's all about moody right now. I told her I see her as yellow. She's usually happy go lucky and just pulsing happiness except for those few days a month when to me she's not black but aubergine. She asked me what color aubergine is and I told her dark purple almost black but that she always bounces back to yellow. Nicky tried to be smart and answered blue, orange and green. I told him no he's a blue. Blue is airy and Nicky definitely has moments where he doesn't think things through that's for sure. I think he only mentioned orange because that's my answer. Green? That's always been his secondary answer for his favorite color. Just a side note....these are my interpretations of colors, not neccessarily what the actual interpretation is for them. So, if red represents Coca-Cola what color represents you?

Father's Day

We made it Sunday to see Dad for Father's Day. Mom didn't make it. She was a little under the weather. While it was weird to be there without her Dad handled it a lot better than I thought he would. We brought him a burger and fries for lunch. He ate them really good. He said he didn't think he was hungry at first. We visited for about an hour. It was me, my sister Cheryl and brother Terry. Then we went to Books a Million and I got a couple of books. The next in line for Sookie books (True Blood) for me and a Star Wars book for Chris. Speaking of True Blood I can't wait for Sunday to get here for the season premiere. It should be a great season. Witches are coming to HBO. LOL. It's been a quiet summer for us so far. We've really done nothing. We did make it to the drive in and got to see the latest Pirates movie and Thor. Both were really good. The great thing about the drive in is its only $10 a car load and we can bring in our own food and drink. The bad thing is its soooooo hot even at night that its a sweaty movie experience. Good thing was there weren't any mosquitos when we were there. Well, that's enough of my rambling for today.

For the birthday wishes and thoughts on grudges. For some reason I can't reply on here to comments. Weird. I guess something changed and I don't know how to fix it. I took my Mom to the doctor today and she's doing well. They upped her insulin a little bit for her evening shot to help and lower her morning numbers but other than that everything else seems to be going well for her. I called my sister Kelly but she didn't answer her phone of course. I told her we needed to get this settled and then started rambling and said more than I meant to say but oh well. She's the one that called me first about the whole mess so its back to her and I've got to let it go. My Mom told me this morning that Kelly is pregnant and due December 30th. :/ Another thing she didn't want me to know I'm guessing. I miss my sister. I should have just told her that and let it all go but I was hurt and let my mouth get the better of me. Maybe, hopefully, she'll come around soon and contact me one way or another. I don't want to lose her like Chris did his Dad. I refuse to let this go on for 8 years like that has with his Dad. :( I feel like I've lost half of me. I never thought we'd have words come between us. This is how our cousins act with each other. Not us. I guess time will tell.

Meet Me on Monday in Texas

Meet Me On Monday!!

Welcome to the 47th edition of
"Meet Me On Monday!"

Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is this person!?" I know them...but yet I don't know them! I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!

Every Sunday will post four get to know you questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!

Java will add a linky so we can follow who participates and get to know them better!! Be sure to link the POST and not just your whole blog!!

If you have a question suggestion please email me at: and if I use your question I will give you a shout out!

I have decided to change the meme to four questions this week...I will probably change it back to five next week!


1. What is was the last piece of candy that you ate?
2. Do you "read" in the bathroom?
3. I can't stand when someone _________?
4. Do you do daily, weekly or monthly grocery shopping?
1. What is was the last piece of candy that you ate?
Peanut Butter M & M's at the drive in Saturday night.

2. Do you "read" in the bathroom?
Yes, I admit it. I read in the bathroom. I know I'm not the only person in blogdom who does it but I'll be the first to admit it in black and white. I blame my Mom for her potty training technique when I was a toddler. She gave me a book every time. So its all her fault that I love to read and read in the bathroom.

3. I can't stand when someone _________?
Holds a grudge. My sister is still holding a grudge from April. I even called her in May but she never returned my call. Yesterday was my birthday and she didn't even call me. Broke my heart and kind of made me feel out of sorts in a very sad way.

4. Do you do daily, weekly or monthly grocery shopping?
I go bi-weekly with a couple of trips in between for more milk or odds and ends I forgot.

Hello Summer...Almost...

Hello Summer. Well, almost. One more day of school tomorrow and that's it for us until sometime in August when Nicky starts marching band practice. He's looking forward to it I think. We did get to go and see my Dad on Memorial day. It was a nice visit. He wasn't in bed this time. We watched Patton with him. That was one hard ass General for sure. I told my sister Cheryl she needed to go to Fort Hood with us sometime and see the museum that is there for Patton. I don't think we've been to it yet either. That's about all we did for the holiday. Chris went back to work on Sunday so he didn't even get to grill for us this time. Oh well....we've got plenty of summer to look forward to for that.
