what do you write about when there is not much to say

I'll be the first to admit i am a slacker when it comes to my blog. But is it really being a slacker or just don't have anything exciting to tell you all? I think it's a bit of both.

Work has been a big pain in the arse lately, they are pushing us to get everyone on the online movie pass...I'm saying why?? Won't that put me out of a job? Why would i throw myself on the unemployment line? Frank is already on the unemployment line about every other week. He just had 3 weeks off and is back to work currently. When he is "unemployed" he is looking for a job that is a little more stable than this. It drives him nuts to be home doing nothing.
My job has been trying to give my shifts a little variety. At least i am not closing all the time. Between Frank and my mom I have been able to do different shifts.

As of Friday i have a 3 day weekend! wooohooo I don't know if i have enough money to go down on friday and spend the night in Ohio to go to King's Island, but i do have enough for tickets and gas and some food. It only means that we will have to drive down at about 5 in the morning. At least i am off on Friday so if that's the case at least i can go to bed early.
The kids are so looking forward to going, they keep asking when and here it's almost upon them.
There is so much to do and see there. They have rides, shows, characters, and a great water amusement area. I have got to take many pictures!

The kids are really starting to get on eachothers nerves, not to mention mine! Blood is seriously starting to be part of a daily ritual. lol... It's always around the one month off that it starts to get a little rough in this household. I start to pray that school starts soon and at the same time praying it takes a little longer because i have not got their school clothes and things ready yet. Amber's list of things she will need for the 5th grade is tremendous! I really hate to see what Darin's list for the 7th grade will be.

Darin's birthday is coming up next month, August 16th. My baby boy will be 12 but he looks like a 15 year old. Today my mom and I took the kids to Taco Bell for lunch and mom notices that he is getting some peach fuzz under his nose. He says he wants to grow a mustache, not just any mustache...the handle bar kind. I had to laugh! Then he said he was going to grow a goatee. I don't know about you all but i love men with mustaches..but can't stand a guy with a beard.

Amber has been getting a sense of humor about her J Lo butt. She even teases herself about it now. Girlfriend has been developing! She is looking more and more like a young jesabelle...I mean I'm kidding ya'll! She is getting so beautiful...Today i begged her to let me put her in pig tails. She actually let me and she kept them in long enough for me to take a picture of her in them. Does anyone know what do do about some serious acne on the forhead for her? I keep telling her it's because of the oil in her hair to try and keep it off her face with a headband. And i have been buying stridex like crazy. Any other ideas? The stridex i can get her to do..but the headband thing she refuses.

My best friend Barb came down on Saturday and spent the night. It was so much fun to see her kids and play some games. I love playing Domino's and I had not played in a long time, in fact it's been a long time since i sat down with adult's and actually played anything. Well anyways she was down so that she can put her son on a plane to Boston for some special summer school for the extra smart kids. Her son Mason lives for school! He actually hates summer vacation...Isn't that the weirdest thing you ever heard? He went to Washington and visited the White House, he was suppose to meet the president if he was not busy at the moment. I don't think he did get to meet him because he never said anything about it. Well anyways, I am supposed to go up north and visit her and her little zoo in August.

You know i am kinda nevous about meeting all her new friends up there. I don't have any new friends...sure we are close with the neighbors across the street..but i don't connect with her like i connect with my best friend Barb.

I have not been feeling well the past few days...yesterday i felt like i had to puke all day. Today has just been feeling a bit weak but i just keep doing whatever has to be done. I don't have time to be sick.
Well i guess i am going to quit babbling now and take my ass to bed.
take care

See you said you didn't have anything to talk about and look at your entry! You had lots to talk about! Your life is more exciting than you think. lol

As for the video thing... I hate to say it, but we have Netflix and I wouldn't trade it for the world. I wonder how video stores stay open now. Sorry, I know you don't want to hear that one. But being busy families, its nice not to have to run out to the video store and then run back in a day or so to return the movies. Not to mention gas. Good grief.

As for Amber's acne. I can't help you much there. I was really allergic to any kind of acne medicine growing up, so I never really used it. Maybe just make sure she cleans her face each night with Noxema and an astringent. And if you can get her to maybe sleep in the headband or put her hair up in a ponytail at night. That way it wouldn't be in her face at night. I think we all have a bit of acne at one time or another.

Kings Island! I'm so jealous. They have some of the best roller coasters in the world. I went when I was about 14 or so. Back when one of the biggest coasters was the wooden "Beast." I think that was the name of it. Roller coasters have certainly come a long way since then.

Anyway, I can leave a comment longer than your actual post. I ramble. Sorry. It was great to see you blogging again. I missed ya!

You had some very nice things to say!
And if your son meets the President, be sure he's not wearing flip-flops. I gather that an all-girl team brought up some social and fashion problems having their picture taken without being dressed properly.

You are right about the hair covering the forehead and skin problems. I used to sleep with a shoestring tied around my head to keep the hair back.
I wash my face every night with PALMOLIVE soap on a wet washcloth, and that has been helping with the spots caused by menopause hormones.
She's at the beginning of the female woes, and I'm almost done. Sometimes it all gets too annoying, but life goes on.
