My neck of the woods -A hodgepodge...

I know it's been a little while since I've said what's going on in my neck of the woods - In some ways it's the same 'ol ; same 'ol --Kids go to school , Hubby goes to work- yada,yada- except there always seems to be something that happens to disrupt our schedule here and there -like my husband going on a business trip last week and a couple of weeks ago when this happened:
That'd be some people working on the gas meter/area- we had a leak -the guy put in a new meter and fixed that but, also noticed a tree stump going into the gas line. So, these guys came out to work on that a few days later -which is fine but, then some other guy was supposed to come turn our gas back on a couple hours after that -when the 2 hrs. passed my husband called and they said it'll be anytime between now (it was about 6pm until midnight -midnight-Really?!) After about 9:30pm we were getting tired so he called again and finally they sent someone about 10:30pm! So yeah that was that.
But, it's not all bad things interrupting the schedule -of course there's lots of school things -Open house, Parent Teacher Conf., PTA stuff-etc. And there's other fun stuff -like going to the last RHOK out and meeting the author of Perfect on Paper -and tonight I get to go to a special movie event -Jane Goodall Live -pretty exciting I get to use a "press pass"! And of course 'Tis the season for all kinds of fall festivals and fun -This past weekend we went to BrushCreek Bazaar:
And there will probably be a trip to the fair and pumpkin patch-etc. in our near future -So, that's what's going on in my neck of the woods - Be sure to check out the last -Your Neck of the Woods with the RHOK and help them decide what their next meme should be!

The Talk- part deux

I know it's been awhile since I posted anything but, there's some things I want to talk about -like:
So, The Talk has been in it's 2nd season for a couple of weeks now - And there has been a little shake up...
Sans Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete. Even though they can be a little loud and crazy -(especially Leah ;) -But, I was surprised they're not on the show anymore. If it was just acting a little crazy at times -then what about Sharon Osbourne? -Oh maybe she's just got a little brown on her nose for finally getting Stevie Nicks to perform on the show(still love ya Sharon -just kidding -kinda ;) -So, that leaves Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, and Julie Chen as the originals still on -and now they've had on (temporarily at least) - Molly Shannon and Sheryl Underwood and also Kris Jenner.
Molly Shannon is of course great -loved her since SNL and Sheryl is great too -but, she kinda feels like the token black person and a mash up of other co-hosts of other morning talk shows *ahem-The View* -just saying she's also a black comedian like other people and all (just kidding-kinda -Ziiinnggg ;) No really they're both lovely and it's nice to know their backgrounds -I had no idea Molly Shannon and her family was in a bad car wreck when she was little -losing her mom,a sister,a cousin, and injuring her dad -leaving him to try to heal and take care of her and her other sister -(I can somewhat relate -since my dad raised me and my sis -but, not because of a tragic accident -and we still saw our mom -alternating weekends and holidays) And so proud of Sheryl's military service and sad to hear her husband killed himself -of course she does a great job of somehow cracking jokes and lightening the mood on tough subjects. And then there's Kris Jenner aka -Mama Kardashian -she's actually pretty good at the talk show gig -getting her points out there -that even makes sense sometimes -(again just kidding- kinda ;) -But, really it's all going ok -even though I still miss Holly and Leah at times - So far, so good -Of course this is all just in my humble opinion :)

My neck of the woods

Well, in my neck of the woods -I'm wishing we had more of the Labor Day weekend to go! - We didn't do much in particular - Was a little lazy and watched some movies -like Rio -etc. But it was such nice weather we decided to go play some mini golf yesterday:
Now I think we're all still a little tuckered out -My son isn't feeling good today -so, he's home with me today and I can't seem to fully wakeup *yawn* -Gotta get in gear though- Because even if I wish it was still the weekend -it's not! And that's what's going on in my neck of the woods -How about you? -Be sure to join in with the RHOK's -Your neck of the woods and let us know!
