***WoW***

Can I just give a big, fat shout out to Laurie at Tip Junkie!! She helped my stat counter hit the 1000 mark today!!! Over a thousand people visited my site!!! You wouldn't believe the orders that I got!! Oh my - I can't believe it! Thanks to everyone out there - it's amazing to know that when I started this blog - I only had about 3 readers. Of course one of those were me because I didn't know how to hide my own IP address - tee hee! It really amazes me how many people actually come to read this thing!

Guys, I know that you all come to read the fun me, but after Sunday's post you now know it's just not like that all the time. It's not easy with 4 kids and trying desperately to work a business {notice I didn't say successful - that one is still up for debate!} I really appreciate all the comments {even the ugly ones} - because of them all, it all work out. Hudson had most of his screaming under control today {Vikki - I will so use that vinegar tip - HYSTERICAL!}, a few other issues got worked out {of course, wouldn't you know it - nothing but a big misunderstanding on both sides!} and well, the other stuff is just that "other stuff".

But for some fat laughs you must go here! You must I tell ya'!! One of the many perks of knowing "people"!! Talking about a redneck - Chad you are a big dork!! But I'm soooo voting for you! You all have got to know this crazy joker - he's not right! When I worked at the dental office, he would call me up in the most "hick" voice he could conjure up and tell me to "get him in to see the doctor - he had a crunked up tooth!" Literally that was what he would say! Sad part - I fell for it! Chad - Natalie I miss you guys sooo much - the comedy is always there!

Hopefully I can post some pictures tomorrow of some art - I've been busting my gut to get some completed today - so close ...... so maybe it will happen tomorrow! And speaking of gut - 5 pounds to go to be back to pre-baby weight! Go me! Of course I look like I got about 20 more to go - but I'm working on it. I'm actually thinking I don't look that bad to have had all these kiddos in such a short amount of time!

You know, I need to also say a little thank you to my husband, Lonnie - talking about a team! For the most part, we work sooo good together. He really is a great husband and awesome father! It's funny to think about when we met - I totally tried to blow him off. And 3 months later - we were engaged! Here lately he has been going through some stuff - for the next 2 days, he will spend most of his mornings with several doctors at Vanderbilt as they finally give him some answers from some tests. Lonnie had an anthrax shot several years ago and has since battled some things - who knows if that was the cause or maybe something else. The doctors {this time} think they have some answers. I guess we will soon see.

{this picture has absolutely nothing to do with nothing . . . but I had to put a picture
with the post! I did this one for-evah ago!}

On a lighter note, I've won several awards for my blog in the past week -I swear I've not forgotten about you all - I just haven't had the time. {Sorry!} I've literally got 8 pages of emails and comments in my inbox to reply to - does this mean I have "arrived"? hehe - to be this important - to have so many people to "correspond" to!? I need to hire "some people" - okay, just kidding - I'm not quite that busy nor am I that important. I just need to find about 6 more hours in the day! I have gotten only about 3 hours of sleep for each of the past 5 days. Tomorrow I will crash - I feel it coming. I know, I can hear some of you saying I need to "be careful" - but this is how I work. I chose to be this busy - therefor I must work it out. So, don't be concerned - I'm good, but extremely tired at that moment - so with that, good night!
