not afraid to say it

Yes, Bill had a blow job in the oval office, so? Something tells me that Hilary isn't a freak in the sheets, and they're still together - she must have known, that someone needed to. I think, (and I may have heard this somewhere else, maybe Blue Momma?) they should have a go-to-girl for the Pres, she can give the b.j. when the First Lady won't go down. If the First Lady has a problem with it, then she should pick up a Cosmo and read about how to get it done, or go out for drinks with friends and get personal lessons, right?

Books into movies

Jodi Picoult is one of my absolute favorite authors, so I was very excited tonight to be able to watch "The Tenth Circle" on Lifetime. Why do they do it? The story wasn't changed too much, but there was just so much left out of it that I wanted to get my book for reference through the movie. I actually know to read the book after the movie, I learned this early on after watching "Lord of the Flies" after reading the book in jr. high, or high school - I can't remember, but you would think I would know better by now. *remember, always read book after the movie*

on being a bitch

What really bugs me about myself is I can't be a bitch to someone's face, well not intentionally (things I have said while drunk or high don't count). I can think bitchy thoughts or even be a bitch behind someone's back, but I can't just go off on someone and feel that release of bitchyness. Which sucks because I could have totally had that opportunity five minutes ago from a phone call to my house, however I wasn't and now I will be thinking bitchy thoughts all day long. I guess when it comes down to it, I'm scared of confrontation.

just so sad.

I never felt like I was dying of cancer. I remember soon after I was diagnosed, I went through about 2 days of "why me?", but I decided soon after that people survive cancer everyday, I was going to be that, a survivor. Now, I am just so sad. My friend Jeff has lived with lung cancer for 1 1/2 years, and now he's dying of it. His wife sent me an email telling me that he is sedated at the hospital, and the doctors don't think he will ever come out of it. Let me give a little background; Jeff and I got along right away, we just clicked. We share a lot of the same personality traits, sense of humor, the same birthday and we even live in the same neighborhood. I met Jeff when we worked at the same accounting firm, worked on the same audit reports and financial statements. Jeff is a good guy and I can't help but think how unfair it is that he is dying. I am so sorry for his wife and family. I have described cancer hitting houses much like a tornado, where one house is fine, another may have a tree down and the next is demolished. Cancer hit our houses (mine and Jeff's) at about the same time, but his seems to be one of those houses hit a little harder than mine. I am truly sad, and so sorry for him and his family.

God bless them.

It is hard enough taking the kiddies out for a meal, but if I have dinner with someone whom I consider a super-mom, and her sister-in-law comes too, who is also super-mom, it is so much more difficult to have a child that will not sit down through a whole meal! I really enjoyed the company, and it was Mexican food, which is always good, I was just feeling a bit inadequate while Baby Princess wanted to scream, stand in her chair, sing the alphabet song, run around the table, UGH!
Big Girl Princess however, total angel. :)

Mary Poppins

Last night I watched "Mary Poppins" with the girls. I just want to report that if you have ever seen any of those nanny shows (i.e. Super Nanny, Nanny 911) each episode turns out exactly how "Mary Poppins" does.

The nanny shows up to a family that lacks love and has unruly kids, there is no hope. Nanny shows up and helps the kids to tidy up the nursery, (which they really enjoy, go figure) and then expands on their imaginations with outings to the park or to some crazy guy's house where he's laughing so hard he is floating to the ceiling. Eventually, on Nanny's day off the kids go with daddy to his work, where they run away again, to that self-employed guy that seems to do everything, but he's cool he sings and dances, that always makes a stranger safe, right? Well, later, Daddy loses his job because the kids are just so crazy wanting to spend their money feeding those darn birds, and the mom, which I couldn't figure out what she did something about voting for women, and the dad take the kids to the park to fly a kite, and all is well so Nanny floats home.

With each episode of Super Nanny or Nanny 911 we find a family that doesn't connect well. The parents work very hard and don't get that the kids need more than just stuff to be happy. Nanny comes to make them understand all that, then she leaves and they are all better. Don't you just love reality TV?

I had to share...

something I saw today on Oprah. Kris Carr, "Crazy Sexy Cancer" was on today and she said something I want to share with the world, well, the world wide web. All of us are going to die, people with cancer just have more information, we need to live each day to the fullest. Make the most out of everyday! These words really spoke to me, I hope they spoke to you too.

and there's a picture of me when I had no hair on chemo...

adventures with the pricesses

Where have I been? I have been trying to keep busy, take the girls on a new adventure everyday so that I can wear them out, they can take a nap and I can keep my sanity. This doesn't seem to be working out too well for me, I am EXHAUSTED!!! I really just want to lie in bed all day long!!!

I do have pictures though from some of our adventures, my favorites are from when we got the haircuts, and they modeled them on the runway.

on Memorial Day, we decided to have a nice little BBQ.

and there is always the playground.
