Movie update...

Space Chimps:

Very good family/kids movie....really funny and cute.

All Roads Lead Home:

Wow really good....I loved it.....a bit of a tear jerker in a few spots but really really good.


This one I wasn't really looking forward to watching...but it turned out to be a really good movie...a lot of action and twists...really made you think.


This one was ok....not the best Disney movie though.....a bit slow going and boring.....hardly any talking in the movie at all.....cute for kids though.....Lindsay enjoyed it.

Saw V:

This one was good if you like the blood and guts and suspense kind of horror flicks....I don't like them at all (give me nightmares) but anyone that does would like it.....lots of spins sort of hard to keep up with unless your really paying attention and have seen all the others before it.

Well that's it for movie weekend...I'm impressed...normally when we get a bunch of movies they end up going back late and half of them unwatched.

Hoping tomorrow's weather will be just as good as today if not better....I can't wait to get out and play with Danny and ride! I will try not to forget the camera!

No big Superbowl plans want to do a little party here at home...have some snacks and watch the that's what we will be doing after we get home from the barn.

Havin' a movie weekend...

Just went and rented a bunch of some popcorn and a bunch of candy and just hang out all weekend.

These are the movies we rented: (No Saw V was NOT my pick....hate horror movies.....especially the Saw ones!)

Woohoo...feeling a bit better...maybe this won't last forever! :)

Lindsay and I are both feeling better today...of course Linds has been sick since last Monday so she should be getting over it by now....I just started with it yesterday.....we both started antibiotics yesterday too so that's probably why were feeling least were not contagious says after 24 of being on antibiotics you are no longer contagious. I really need to get back to work....throwing a wrench in my schedule like this is driving me crazy...can't stand sitting home doing practically nothing.

So they say, the weekend looks like it's actually supposed to be nice.....if it's true I will be riding that's for sure. I've almost forgotten what it even feels like to ride my horse.

I didn't get to the cooking I had planned on doing today, (worked on bills instead....eeeewwwww...getting really sick of robbing Peter to pay Paul, especially since Peter is broke too...hehe...gatta laugh once in a while) so we ended up having homemade pizza, spaghetti with sauce and garlic cheese bread! Quick and easy.

Found another new song I like (haven't uploaded it yet though.....maybe in a few I will) it's called "Could Have Been Mine" by Keith's pretty cool!

Homemade chicken and rice with dumplings soup...

Mmmm Mmmmm Mmmmmm........It turned out absolutely awesome.....I figured since I planned on making it one of these days and Lindsay and I are sick I would make it....I couldn't believe it...everyone loved it! The house smelled sooooo good....mmmmm.....celery and onions and chicken! I was pretty proud of myself considering my kids normally don't like my 'homemade' cooking....but I love to cook so I make them eat it anyway. Now I'm in the mood to make lasanya or potato dumplings in saurkrout with pork roast...mmmm..mmm.mmm. Depending on whether or not I go in to work tomorrow I just might do some more cooking. I at least want to bake some snickerdoodle cookies, I've been craving them for a while now. Of course it also depends on how I feel!

Feeling yucky...

Poor little Lindsay has been sick for the past week....mostly cold symptoms....well her throat got pretty bad on Monday so I took her into the doctor....they do a strep test that comes back 10 minutes later negative.....ok cool.....not strep just a virus...that's a good thing right....nope couldn't get that lucky....they sent the test in and called this morning to tell us the in-depth test came back positive so she does have strep....well that sucks now it's gonna go all through the family....I woke up this morning to a nasty sore throat and feeling just plain yucky with a low grade temp. so obviously I'm already getting it or have it too....nice huh! Grrrrr I don't like being sick.....I took the day off of work today so hopefully I can sleep some and kick it faster....well I'm going to curl up in bed and hopefully catch a good Lifetime movie.

OMG.....It's flippin' cold outside!

Ok I've had enough of our beautiful Wisconsin winter weather.......It's like -30 with the wind chill....and it's going to get worse........I don't like being this cold! I would give just about anything to have a hottub and a fireplace right now!!!!

Poor Danny is gonna freeze....thank goodness he's in a barn overnight...I can't imagine how all the horses are doing in this cold weather that are on pasture board.

Inner thoughts...bad night

Well it's been a pretty bad day/night once again...those of you that know how Jim's health is know that it's been bad and getting worse.....well he consistently is in pain to the point of where he's throwing up from it....he hardly ever eats anything because it causes him pain for days on end and he doesn't (which I don't either) trust the doctors here but then he won't call any other doctors and will definitely not go into the hospital because he thinks/knows he will never come back out and will end up dying there. I'm getting to a point that I'm having a really hard time dealing with all this...I have always known he has bad health issues and I have known for the last 16 years that this stuff was coming and I really thought I was/would be prepared for it but it's actually a lot harder than I ever thought it would be......I think a lot of it has to do with his attitude towards it all...he won't get any help because he's so afraid but I just can't help him any more than I have been and it's just not enough...he can't sleep at night which in turn keeps me awake all night trying to help him with his pain and at least try to comfort him's really starting to wear on me, which sounds really selfish but it's my real feelings........I guess sometimes it just helps to put it all down on paper here in a sense........ok done venting now......I feel a little better I think......I really hate this stuff sometimes I wonder why I'm being punished like this......I really shouldn't feel this terrible is that, what a bad selfish person I am......when he's actually the one being punished with all these health issues!

Mama's Purdy Smile......

Ok.....dear wonderful daughter Chelsea claims I have a really purdy smile in this picture......I, on the other hand, think I look like a dork....hehe.
Now mind you this is Christmas morning at 6 am. so no shower, no makeup, no nothing, I haven't even had a full cup of coffee yet .....that's a scary thought in itself. Just rolled out of bed. So let's see what the rest of the world thinks.

Added some pictures.....check em out!!!

They're down in the photos area!

New Year's Day...

Well New Year's Day turned out better than New Year's Eve anyway. Spent most of the day cleaning.....introduced Dakota to the vacuum was fun...after a while he didn't mind it. After supper Lindsay and I decided we wanted to try and see if Dakota could/would pull her while she was on the sled in the back yard. We had fun....fell down a lot and I'm starting to wonder if I got frost bite on my butt cheeks (shouldn't have been out literally sitting in the snow with sweatpants on...hehe) Dakota was getting pretty confused because we don't have a harness for him. He caught on after about 10 minutes. We then started to just sled down the little hill we have in the back yard for Dakota to sit up on.....we had a lot of fun! Dakota would chase us up and down the little hill....Lindsay had fun using Dakota as a rescue dog........Mom would go down the hill...crash....then fake hurt....Lindsay and Dakota would come find me and fix me all up. I'm getting pretty sick of all this snow but it sure was fun to play in it for a while tonight.
