MY MYSTERIES edited and added

1. The never ending sock mystery...You wash them, you dry them, but to mate them there is always one sock that goes to sock

2. I don't know how or why, but i am missing plates! I don't know if the kids are breaking them and throwing them away without telling me... I used to have alot.

3. My towels, where in the world did all my towels go?

4. How in the world does dust collect on a ceiling fan that is in constant motion?

5. How can my daughter stand her bedroom being so messy. It's not horrible...but i like things in their place. I've seen worse...My neighbor's girl puts plates with food under her bed and in her dressers...So i guess i am lucky, Amber knows I would freak out if I ever saw that.

6. Why my son prefers boxer's over briefs?

7. Ok...this sounds stupid...(not like i haven't said stupid things before) Why do my little boy dogs get horny with my big dog? She has never been in heat her whole life! They don't know what they are doing but insist on you saw it, it would be more funny.

Well that's just a few of the mysteries that i think about when i am bored. Looking at them...I think...I NEED A LIFE!! LOL

Thanks Eileen for reminding me
8. Spoons...where do they go? I've bought spoons 3 times in the past year...what the?

Just after work I got this email that made me ponder these questions also.

If one has sex with a prostitute against her will, is it considered rape or shoplifting?

Can you cry under water?

How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

Why do you have to 'put your two cents in'... but it's only a 'penny for your thoughts'? Where's that extra penny going to?

Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

What disease did cured ham actually have?

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up like every two hours?

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV?

Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway.

Why is 'bra' singular and 'panties' plural?

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?

Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane ?

If the professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can't he fix a hole in a boat?

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs!

If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn't he just buy dinner?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

Why do they call it an asteroid when it's outside the hemisphere, but call it a hemorrhoid when it's in your butt?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

Weird that this email came on the same day i posted this

The city of Warren is repairing sidewalks of course all of my sidewalk had to be replaced. While they were there i got a quote on replacing my driveway and to put in my porch that i have been wanting for a long time. From the time that i got the quote to saying yes, they had most of my cement pulled up before i could grab my camera and take before pictures. But i got during and after pictures to show you.

My front sidewalk

Because the driveway was getting done the old walkway to my front door had to be replaced or i would have had a major trip hazard.

Old dirt driveway.

My new walkway and part of the driveway.
New driveway for me to park my truck on :)
This is the most exciting...after 10 years I have a porch!!!! I smiled ear to ear as they were pouring my porch. I was looking out the vertical blinds to admire it.
New sidewalk!
It looks so purty!!!!! Now i just need new gates and Put up the little half wall around my porch and decorate it and my front of the house will be just beautiful. I'm so excited. Little by little i am getting my house the way i always wanted it.

TaDa...A New Amber

Amber got a new look...I took her to the beauty shop near by and got some wonderful advice from the hair stylist Sue. She said that the blonde with black is wonderful for a little while but when it fades it gets ugly fast.
She recommened doing black with red bangs and I think it looks fabulous!
She used onyx black and merlow red. In the sunshine it really shows the red.

A view of the back all black.
I said "smile if you like your new do!"
guess she does :)

Happy Belated 4th of July

This is what I love to see....My kids playing.
Our 4th of July was spent outdoors! My neighbors invited us to a BBQ and games and neighborly chit-chat!
Darin is playing a little one on one badminton.

At night we waited for the fireworks show that happens on our block every year. This would have been a nice father-daughter pic if Amber would have kept her tongue in her mouth.

Amber enjoying some sparklers

Frank and his best friend Bert. Our across the street neighbor.

Frank acting like the statue of liberty..

Can you see that my son is taller than my husband in this...he is 13.

Amber trying to pull the statue of liberty pose :)

On the 5th of July My daughter, her best friend Lisa, my parents and I went to beautiful Stoney Creek for a picnic. This is just one of the two beaches this park has. The scenery is just beautiful! This was early, before anyone started to go swimming.
Amber and her friend went for a dip. They said that is wasn't that bad...Bull Pucky! I am still in hypothermia.
Afterwards they sat in the sand and took in the "scenery" .....Lifeguards, men in bathing suits.
This is when Amber and her friend Lisa was just walking in the water.
Need to buy Amber a bathing suit. I forgot to put this on my things to do list.
Hope everyone's 4th was as wonderful as mine.
My daughter asked me if she could dye her hair...Of course I thought she wanted more carmel highlights like always...Nope...She asked if she could dye her hair black with her bangs being blonde. She saw it on the movie "Hairspray" and she keeps talking about.
The question...would you let your daughter do this?
I'm thinking about it...letting her experiment with different ways to be her own individual. It can't hurt anybody. And I have seen this ...and I think it would be cute on her. I am going to give myself a few days to think about this.
What do you think?
