Being Zany and Crazy through video one VIDEO at a time! :)

Archive for January, 2009


This is in response to Barbi’s blog entry in November 2008. I made a mistake ( an enjoyable mistake I might add)  and started to read some of her past entries and came across her Tag entry.  In an attempt to get  everyone to update their blogs I am putting an idea out there for you. Hopefully results will follow shortly.

I am tagging everyone that reads this blog entry.  TAG!!! YOU ARE IT!! (for those who don’t know about tags if you are reading this you HAVE to do this same tag on your blog.)

I thought I would put a recent picture up as well as not to bore you all to death with yet again another entry. 🙂

My five favorite Family Memories (the family that I am raising NOT the family I grew up in, that’s down below)

1-driving around and seeing Christmas lights

2- going to the pool with my girls and watching them play for hours.

3- Family Home Evening (any day I get to spend more time with my family is a good thing.)

4- Spending time with extended relatives (This past Martin Luther’s King day, Dan’s sister and family came to visit)

5- Picnic in the park (My oldest reminded me of this one, we ate at the park on a Sunday afternoon because we had no kitchen to speak of because our basement apartment we were living in flooded–that’s another story alltogether)

    Five Favorite Family Memories in the family I grew up in

1- Brigantine New Jersey (My great grandmother had a beachhouse in New Jersey and almost every summer I would stay with her and my cousin Becky and I also remember playing with an Oliver. He was the next door neighbor.)

2- Family gatherings at Mom-Mom Mary’s house. (I remember numerous activities at her house. thanksgiving, christmas, summer vacation…etc…)

3- Clementon Amusement Park ( My grandmother Mom Mom Mary would take me to this park on my vacation with her.)

4- Driving around seeing Christmas lights  and my little brother Matt pointing out the lights..”Look, L   i  g  h  t  s!”

5. Dad saying he could see the planets from earth. “Look, It’s Venus!”

Hope you enjoyed reading some of my favorite family memories. What are some of yours??


In all seriousness, I could go on all day with old pictures. I just don’t want to bore anybody to death.  I like looking at old picture CD’s. It brings those wonderful memories back to the surface. Anyway,  the reason for this entry is I wanted to update y’all on Daniel’s surgery.  It went well, he saw his therapist Gordon yesterday and he just said keep moving the finger.  Just keep moving that finger.  I think it will take at least a week for it not to hurt so bad but the pain will eventually subside.  He has a job interview this Friday.  He is also in the process in finding another job.  Boy when it rains, it pours around here. We always seem to be busy with so many thing at once, healing, finding new work, cleaning house, (laundry, dishes, cooking…the list is endless for me) And of course don’t forget blogging and facebook.

Well, I hope this entry finds you all well. I am finding more and more of your blogs out there! This is so much fun!

Adios amigos! Until next time!

Old family picture.

I got a BIG laugh out of this picture. We were at my mother in law’s about ready to leave when she remembered I wanted our pictures done. Awfulness! And how bout Anna’s orange pants? She never wears THOSE pants anymore.  So laugh all you want. I did. True awfulness!

Random old pictures.

So I thought you migh enjoy this picture. I was looking through an old kodak CD and came across this picture. For some reason I always seem to take my picture with my mouth wide open. Go figure.

The top picture is of my oldest Anna around age 5 or 6 when she is missing her two front teeth. And yes she did lose them around Christmas so she could sing the famous song “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth.”

My sweet husband

Please excuse the room my sweet husband is sitting in. It is currently being used for an office/storage room/tool closet for Daniel. (We really need a garage.) Anyway the purpose for this post is to inform you that my sweet husband Daniel is going for follow-up surgery on his hand. (Daniel injured his hand back in July 2008, was out of work for a couple of months, then therapy during those months) Anyway, His doctor and therapist thought a tenialisis (spelling?) would be a good idea. Basically Daniel can only bend his finger about halfway. His doctor and his therapist think this surgery will correct the problem, The surgeon is going to cut the scar tissue away from the tendon so he can bend his finger. Short recovery thank goodness! Doctor told us 3-5 days.

Another wonderful note to mention about my wonderful husband. I was out of milk this morning and he came home after a morning errand to ask if there was anything he could help me with. I told him I needed to get milk and we ended up picking up the milk together. When I was looking at him in the store I was reminded why I married him. He has such a wonderful smile and I love the way he looks at me with his loving eyes. This Valentine’s Day I am grateful to be married to such a wonderful man!

I will update further about how the surgery went! Stay tuned!

Playlists–Softer music

Tell me what you think about this music Debbie. I like this softer music for my blog. You still might want to mute it while you read what I have to say but it’s softer and less grating on people’s nerves. I actually did that same thing you did. I had 3 different playlists going at once too. But now I know better. Close each blog after you read it. I did like Lindiva’s choice of music though. I had never heard of most of the music but that’s ok. I already knew she listened to way different music than me. Some of it is actually good. 

Happy listening everybody. I hope you enjoy my softer music!

Get a playlist!
Standalone player

I am sure everyone has heard this song of rhyme from somewhere before. Let me refresh your memories.

Make new friends,

but keep the old.

one is silver,

and the other gold.

Thank you all for allowing me to be a part of your lives once again.  I hope I can keep better tabs on you this way. I know my family that I live so very far away from right now is appreciative of the many pictures that I post.  It’s been fun reconnecting again.
