Nothing much---just thinking on the blog...

OK, who the heck is Amy Winehouse and why is she in the news all the time? Did anyone else see the news on Yahoo? Why is she so freaky looking? Am I just that out of the loop or am I above it all? Hee hee.

We
won our softball game tonight. I didn't get on base except for one time. All the other times at bat was like I was golfing. "Oh, here you go, shortstop! Here's a nice present for you called a softball." Why couldn't I get it past third or short? What's up with that?

Pete is traveling this week. It is his big SERA 17 conference. They talk about manure and how it is ruining our planet and what we need to do about it. Last year University of Arkansas hosted it. It's in Annapolis, MD this year. It would have been nice to go (sans kids) but I am working some this week and, Lord knows, we need the money...

Besides, I am going to DC later on this week to see an old h.s. friend that lives there now. She has three girls and it's great fun getting together. I can't help but remember how goofy we were back then and be blown away that we're both mothers. Scary. (I'm talking about me there).

And my daughter has gotten so smart-alec-y. What should I do about it? She makes threats like "If you don't let me watch TV, I will stay in my room and not eat breakfast or lunch or dinner." I tell her that she will get hungry. It's amazing that kids can try to use food as power at that age. (BTW, I say it without emotion).

My mom used to use that line on me..."fine, you just won't eat" it worked!

my dad would send me to bed without dinner if i didn't behave. oh my god when your sitting in your room and your hungry... and your not allowed to have anything, no tv no radio nothing....

but, i knew what i had to do to get out of punishment and eat. but daddy always seemed to know when i ment it or when it was just words. and trust me i got a lecture the entire time when i came out to appologize for my behavior.

i like some of Whinehouse's songs but seriously i think she needs a "better look".
