Wordy Wednesday

Every week, or so, at
Mama Kat posts 5 prompts to get your brain working.
I seem to never get to it, but then I figured it doesn't have to be so WORDY. So I'll post whatever comes to me and leave it at that. This is supposed to be fun right?!?!

The Prompts:

1.) My animals are making me nuts.
(inspired by Jody from Take Me As I Am).

2.) List the 5 best things about the first day of school.
(inspired by Lane from Sneaky Daddy).

3.) Tell us about your crush.
(inspired by Lisa from Just Lisa, No Filler)

4.) How did you break it?
(inspired by Brandy from Not Your Average Soccer Mom)

5.) Show us a favorite summer craft.
(inspired by Kristin from The Way It Is)

I'm choosing 5 best things about the first day of school.

Now if you know me, I am NOT looking forward to the first day of school. It breaks my heart that they are gone for 6 hours of the day. The idea of someone else teaching my children and them not getting the one on one attention they deserve, makes me sad. The funny thing is, I LOVE SCHOOL!!! I always liked it growing up, except for those mean kids. I very much enjoyed getting my 2 degrees. I actually want to get my doctorate but we have to pay for the first 2 degrees first. So I am not sure why I despise my children going to school.

The first best thing is that I know they both are so excited to go to school. Alli's pretty much familiar with the school year since she's going into 2nd grade. Jason has been desperately waiting for Kindergarten to start. So that is one good thing.

Another best thing, they get to make friends with kids their own age.

They get a break from each other. They love each other but, like anyone else, they need a break from each other.

Fourth good thing, I'll be able to walk the dogs as far and as fast as I like.

Fifth thing, I'll be able to focus on a task without someone needing something or just wanting to chat.

So there you go. I'm still not happy about it, but I'll try to focus on these 5 things. :-)

Which one are you going to pick?

Menu Plan Monday

I am trying to be more consistent on my blog, hopefully entertaining those who read it. So I am trying out different approaches.

This one is going to be Menu Plan Monday. I'll list what I plan on making for dinner this next week. Some people will have trouble with this one since they don't cook.

Monday- Tacos
Tuesday- Oven Fried Chicken, Rice and green beans
Wednesday- Fish
Thursday-Left overs
Friday- Pizza
Saturday- BBQ
Sunday- I really don't know

So what are you going to make this week?

Make a list Monday

I'm going to start, Make a List Mondays. Every Monday, I'll write a list of whatever I feel like I need to list. I'd love if you could post your list as well.

So here it goes:

-Tuesday morning around 9, hit the movie store.
-9:30 be at B & M motors for car repair
-Somewhere around 10:30-11:00 go for reinspection for JCI (Japanese Compulsory Insurance)
-Hopefully pass and hit up the 100 yen store with the kids
-Grab some lunch at the bowling alley with kiddos and bowl a game or two
-Check the mail
-Come home and let the doggies out
-Make dinner and clean up
-Enjoy the family time
-Go to bed

So what is your list for tomorrow?

I love these! Vintage humor has me all cracked up!


Our first typhoon of the Summer, at least that I know about, decided that Okinawa wasn't so tasty. We did take everything down as did all the neighbors. It got windy and rainy but that's about it. This first picture (above) shows the track as of yesterday. We are that itty bitty island that says Kadena. I know it's an awful picture. The typhoon is headed straight for Taiwan and China.

Kinda sad that we didn't get a full storm, just to say that we had one. Probably a good thing we didn't.

I am sure many of you are anxiously awaiting pics of Alli's birthday and any other thing we've been up to. I have my blogs written down but have been so extremely busy this week that no d this pic posted. So as a nice surprise I found this picture of the front of a card that will surely hold you all over until I can get to the more personal entries.
