So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Friday round-up or scattered thoughts

I love living in the 'burbs in Texas. We were having a meeting of parents on the soccer team Wednesday night when I heard a moo from across the street. Then, I look up and the llama is right behind my son while he is playing keeper in the goal. Good stuff.

It sucks to be a dippy bleached blonde sometimes. While I'm not platinum, sometimes I should be. I wasted about 90 minutes today, thinking I had locked my keys in the car. Turns out, they were in my purse the whole time.

I have a pioneer woman friend. Sometimes, it shocks me that were such good friends. She has five children between 3-14 and she home schools them. They just moved to a 40-acre parcel of land and they're getting a herd of goats and a horse. Her husband suffers from a chronic health condition and he is going to get a vasectomy reversal so they can get pregnant again. Swear to God. *shaking my head* More power to 'em, I guess. I couldn't do it. The five children would put me in the looney bin.

And, I'm about to burst. We're taking the kids to Disney World in October. We're going to take a long weekend and take them probably to Magic Kingdom and Disney-MGM and then to visit Grandma for a day in Cocoa Beach and head for the beach. I'm so excited. We're going to try and keep this a secret. I know, I know ... me and my big mouth, this will be a challenge. But, I'm going to try. We'll tell them we're going to see Grandma on our way to the airport. Then, we'll let them be shocked with the Magic Express picks us up at the airport. Should be a blast. I can't wait. I've never stayed at the resort, so this will be fun.

I'm so ready for school to start. I love my kids, but we need a break from each other. Five more days. Of course, once they're in school, I'll miss the little buggers.

    We've had a goat running down the sidewalk of our subdivision before. Very strange sight. Opossum, deer, rabbits, fox and even black bears all have been seen in our burb county. They are running for their lives! LOL

    And...someone should have kept the Disney secret away from YOU! (tee-hee)

    I went to Disney World on business about a month ago and found out they have "Magical Hours"...I think that is what they were called.

    If you stay at certain resorts on property, the park is open to you from 11pm until 2am! Check it out :)
