Wellll I was invited to go to a Brunch by one of the nice ladies on the DAM mother board I joined _ still have not gotten a full membership as I am waiting for some extra money so that I am not told I am waisting money :) Anywhooo...I went and it was my first function and I liked it! I was a little non talkative (as many know I talk alot!) Only because I was a bit shy, but toward the end I got into the talkative mode that you all know and love me for hehe...I must say the ladies were really friendly and nice. I think that I will be doing a lot more of these meets, and such. Michael played with the other kiddos and I hardly even saw him and he got along really good with the kids he was playing with. Besides the wearing of the fairy wings well it was fun!!!!!!!!!!

Well last week I was called for a phone interview (never had one before) so I guess it went well because she called me yesterday to come in for a formal interview YAY! Well this morning I went in at 10am and the interview seemed to go rather well (to me anyway) So it is almost time to get Michael from the bus stop when my phone rang - it was Tara! the lady who interviewed me calling to offer me the position! Of course I accepted and I start tomorrow :)
They are being really flexable with my scheduling needs. As I want to be able to get Michael on the bus in the Am and be home to get him off of the bus in the evenings. So my hours will be....drum roll please.....(imagine a drum roll now)....Monday thru Thursday....8am until 2pm! YAY ME!
FRIDAYS off too! GREAT!
So I will be starting tomorrow :) So excited and the bestest part I can wear JEANSSSSSSSSSSS and no uniform shirt or anything! Yipppies!

Well what can I say about the zoos here in Texas (DFW atleast) uhmm you have to PAY to get in...Yes that is strange to me - considering the national zoo in DC is free - soo yeah that was 1 weird/different thing.
There are 2 zoos near me, Dallas Zoo and Ft Worth Zoo. We went with John and Galena and there kiddos, so we went to Ft Worth - apparently it is supposed to be better then Dallas - i know one thing it sure cost more to get in then the Dallas Zoo.
Lets see...Dallas admission 1 adult is...$8.75 and $5.75 kids. The Ft Worth is 10.50 per Adult and $8.00 per kid. I plan on going to the Dallas Zoo to do my own comparison. We did have a great time at the Ft Worth zoo, it was however more of a drive then Dallas would have been. The animals I must say were out and actually doing things - which each time I went to the zoo in DC they were all looking a bit - uh measley. The back drops where the animals lived were also amazing. Great scenery!

So last night we are all sitting in Michael's room playing Wii, when Michael blurts out MY TOOTH CAME OUT! So I jumped up rinsed out his mouth and put his tooth in a baggie. Awe my baby is growing up sooo sad :( yet happy - i guess they call that bitter sweet?
So Michael went to sleep last night and I had all intentions on making a note and putting some money in place of where his tooth was. I wanted to make some certificate on the computer - but yeah we have no printer at this time Booooo!
So I ended up falling alseep and not doing anything - I woke up and ran to my purse - emptied all the silver in a baggie and quickly wrote a letter from the Tooth Fairy to Michael. Before I got to get it in his room to exchange the money for the tooth here comes Michael. "mommy there isnt anything under my pillow" OH no, so I tell him to go and lay in mommy's bed I was going to call daddy and find out what happened. So I ran in his room (thankfully he migrated during the nite to the other side of the bed) his tooth was in open space on the top of his bed and his pillow was at the bottom of the bed. So I grabbed up the tooth and swapped it with the money and note and threw his blanket over it! I went back in my room where Michael was laying and asked him was he sure there wasnt anything in his room, and if he looked where he left his tooth. So he got up to check, less then 1 minute I hear him running back to my room and I hear the jingle of change! He believed it I AM SAFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I willo never let that happen again - next time as soon as a tooth is loose I will be ready!

Michael has had sleep overs before - but this is the first one in Texas :)
He usually sleeps at his cousins house but this time his cousin slept over his house! He was so excited and they had loads of fun! Hopefully they can do it again. They played with toys, (what a mess!), the Wii, PS3 and watched movies.

I got Michael's plant he is taking into school tomorrow! I wasnt sure what to get for him to take in, I had many suggestions, An ivy plant, A cactus, A venus fly trap, and I wanted a flower because of the different parts a flower has. SOOO I must have looked confused in the garden center of Walmart bc the woman asked if I needed help. (mind you I had like 4 different plants in my hand and no basket and I was wandering past the same plants 10 times)So after explaining to her that Michael had a project to bring in a plant they would watch it grow and were going to keep a journal of it. She suggested a STRAWBERRY PLANT! What a great idea wal-mart lady! YOU ROCK! She said since it had a blossom on it the kids could see that, and then when the blossom falls off the strawberry starts to grow! The plant now has 1 bloom, and a few baby strawberries they can watch grow! How cool it that! I have added pics in the albums!

Okay so mmmaayyybe some of you may have heard of this "frito pie" but I have never heard of it before Sunday - we went bowling and they had it on the menu - I asked Mike if he has ever head of it and he hadnt either. So we asked the guy there - and he said it was basically fritos, chili and cheese. Soooo I googled it so I can see what it looked like - to me it looks like vomit! Barf - looking at it makes my tummy turn - just looks unhealthy and full of fat and calories for sure! I asked my friend who is from Texas if it was a "Texas thing" but I guess it isnt I just have never heard of it before LOL
Well she said it was good - I will take her word for it but that is one pie that I will not be trying anytime soon - if ever at all LOL
I dont even like fritos all that much anyway LOL

Ok sooo....this is what my email said I sent out today to my friends (so some of you may have it) but those who dont feel free to read :)
Okay this may sound a bit stupid (well no it does not it is ME asking the question so it is normal ha) anyyywhooo....
So you all know I am on this mom forum - well - someone posted a forum called March Fool's Day- so I open it and read it and thought she was being silly from the title. NOPE serious and other moms responded to her post referemcing this "March Fool's Day" - uhhhh - I am drawing a blank here - What is March Fool's Day? Am I missing something? I thought it was April Fool's Day - Soooooo ME being ME Google it - LOL
Intresting info here:
April Fools' Day or All Fools' Day, though not a holiday in its own right, is a notable day celebrated in many countries on April 1. The day is marked by the commission of hoaxes and other practical jokes of varying sophistication on friends, enemies and neighbors, or sending them on fools' errands, the aim of which is to embarrass the gullible. Traditionally, in some countries, the jokes only last until noon. If you play a trick on someone after this time you are the April Fool. Elsewhere, for example in France, the jokes may last all day.
soooooo....that is cool right well the orgin here:
The origins of this custom are complex and a matter of much debate. It is likely a relic of the once common festivities held on the vernal equinox, which began on the 25th of March, old New Year's Day, and ended on the 2nd of April.
Though the 1st of April appears to have been observed as a general festival in Great Britain in antiquity, it was apparently not until the beginning of the 18th century that the making of April-fools was a common custom. In Scotland the custom was known as "hunting the gowk," i.e. the cuckoo, and April-fools were "April-gowks," the cuckoo being a term of contempt, as it is in many countries.
One of the earliest connections of the day with fools is Chaucer's story the Nun's Priest's Tale (c.1400), which concerns two fools and takes place "thritty dayes and two" from the beginning of March, which is April 1. The significance of this is difficult to determine.
Europe may have derived its April-fooling from the French. French and Dutch references from 1508 and 1539 respectively describe April Fools' Day jokes and the custom of making them on the first of April. France was one of the first nations to make January 1 officially New Year's Day (which was already celebrated by many), by decree of Charles IX. This was in 1564, even before the 1582 adoption of the Gregorian calendar (See Julian start of the year). Thus the New Year's gifts and visits of felicitation which had been the feature of the 1st of April became associated with the first day of January, and those who disliked or did not hear about the change were fair game for those wits who amused themselves by sending mock presents and paying calls of pretended ceremony on the 1st of April. In France the person fooled is known as poisson d'avril (April fish). This has been explained as arising from the fact that in April the sun quits the zodiacal sign of the fish. The French traditionally celebrated this holiday by placing dead fish on the backs of friends. Today, real fish have been replaced with sticky, fish-shaped paper cut-outs that children try to sneak onto the back of their friends' shirts. Candy shops and bakeries also offer fish-shaped sweets for the holiday.
Some Dutch also celebrate the 1st of April for other reasons. In 1572, the Netherlands were ruled by Spain's King Philip II. Roaming the region were Dutch rebels who called themselves Geuzen, after the French "gueux," meaning beggars. On April 1, 1572, the Geuzen seized the small coastal town of Den Briel. This event was also the start of the general civil rising against the Spanish in other cities in the Netherlands. The Duke of Alba, commander of the Spanish army could not prevent the uprising. Bril is the Dutch word for glasses, so on April 1, 1572, "Alba lost his glasses." The Dutch commemorate this with humor on the first of April.
Sooooo what - have I been the only one to not know that April Fool's Day reallly should have started on March 25th? And ended 12am tonight? Because if I could prank for a week that is much better then 1 day! No but really has anyone else heard it refered to as March Fool's Day?
Which makes me NOW realize why the new movie April Fool's day (1989 horror movie remake) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1018817/ released on MARCH 25!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL Coooool so we have been missing out on a WEEK of PRANKING! Well atleast I have - since I always thought it was 1 day of pranking!
UGHHHHHHHH I have been mislead my whole 27 years are not pointless LOL
