5 on Friday

1. We started school last week. Its been going good. The first week went great. We got up early, ate and did our little chores around the house and we were starting by 8:15 and done about 1. This week has not been like that. Its my fault, I keep shutting off forgetting to set my alarm. Naughty teacher. I'd much rather snuggle in bed with Owen when he gets in my bed at 6 every morning. Next week will be better. I hope!

2.We have a problem with keeping cats alive. Last spring Ben brought home 2 mother cats and all their babies. All the babies died or ran away. Then a few weeks ago the kids found a littler of kittens up in the hayloft of the barn. They brought them down to the main floor and Bruits ,our monster dog, killed most of them. The mama cat moved the rest of them. Then last week the kids found them again but it looked as if they had been neglected and we tried to save them, we brought them into the house ( if you know me at all this is HUGE- I hate having animals in the house!) kept them in a box and fed them. When we felt like they would be okay in the hayloft again they were put back up there but they ended up getting distemper and the last 2 died. The kids are pretty bummed. Daddy brought home a medium size cat home this week that was already tame and friendly. Hopefully for the kids sake this one will live awhile!

3.I've been dreaming again. And boy have they been weird. They've involved our house getting attacked by spiders while we were sleeping, My sister and a cat that she had leased with a Chinese Yo-Yo thingy??, Me peeing on Owen's pillow( not really sure about how I feel about this one!) I actually had to get up and check to see if I had really peed on his pillow- thankfully it WAS JUST a dream!

4.My sister Christa and I have been hired to perform some little acts as the Traveling Tulips coming up in November.

 What's that?

You haven't heard of us?

This is us-

yes I know- you are all jealous of my super hot looks in this picture!
Ben is one lucky man!
 ( he actually HATES that I do this! HAHA!)
We like to do little shows for Bridal Showers, we've done them for MOPS and a Mother/Daughter Brunch.
We are busy trying to find some good ones but we are pretty sure there will be a "seminar" and maybe some "I can smell you breathing" performances. I was so happy find some new wigs for us that are similar to our old ones that my dad accidentally burned. Oh and since Mildred ( my character) had got a new "do" I've decided to change her name to Milly. We are getting excited. We love doing these little acts!

5.I'm going to be an Auntie again! My little sister Jaclyn just called last night to tell me she's "on the nest" again! She is a wonderful mommy already to her little Zander. I can't wait to find out if it will be a little girl or boy. I'm really hoping she names her child after me. Since of course I am her favorite sister- that's right Jessica and Christa- I said it and we ALL know its true :) Anyways looks like the little one will be arriving in May. Hopefully that will make the long fall and winter go a little faster! Congratulations Jaclyn and Justin, you are such great parents! Almost as good as me ;)
