Mmmm... Milkshakes...

I have a craving for a vanilla milkshake, and it's only 9 am. Just thought you'd want to know...

*emmett* ~ who really wish she had some vanilla ice cream right now...

p.s. Happy birthday today to 1996 Olympic Gymnastics team member Dominique Moceanu. Also happy birthday to my friend Casey Stewart, who likes to "check out" Dominique Moceanu. :)

December 1st... Home Free! Or Are You?

You know what confuses me? I saw this ad (probably for or something similar) that said:

"Hurricane season is from now until November 30th!"

Okay... so... I don't know about the weather people that you know, but all the ones I have known don't know it's going to rain until their basement has flooded. During Hurricane Ivan, they were like, "It's going to hit Louisiana first!" And it destroyed Alabama!

So... okay... these must be Super-Powered-Weather-People knowing the EXACT day that hurricane season is over. What if there is a hurricane on December 1st? Is it no longer a hurricane? Do they just call it a "scary-ass storm" then?

"Yes, Bill, now that hurricane season is over, 'Scary-Ass Storm Zephaniah' is on its way to Florida... or what's left of it. This will be a bad one, but I'm sure glad hurricane season is over! Phew!"

Or maybe if a hurricane is arriving on December 1st, they just say, "Sorry, Hurricane! Time's up! Hurricane season is overrrrr! Boo-yah! Get your butt back to where you came from because there is no way you're going to go all Hurricane Jeanne on our butts over here! HA!" Yeah... maybe...

I mean, poor Florida. I wish I lived closer so I can donate some stuff. I mean, we don't have much ourselves (not even furniture!), but hey... we can donate hugs. :-) I always have plenty of those.

Anywho... I wish these Super-Weather-People would come to Rhode Island. This morning it was raining so I wanted to see what's in store for the rest of the week. I turn on the news...

"A little bit of rain today on the island." No... ya think?! Is that what that stuff is? I just thought somebody was holding up a really big fan over at the shore. Uh-huh. Okay.

*emmett* ~ who is *so* glad she doesn't live in Florida or states nearby. God bless you guys. :-)

p.s. I went to elementary school in California, and I've never been to Maryland. But... it's possible Mrs. Carol Hilton could have lived in Maryland. She's an older woman. I'm just sayin'...

I'm Grown Up Now!

I feel like an *Official Married Adult* now. (I mean... as opposed to what I have been for the past year and nine months...) And why do I feel like an Official Married Adult?

We purchased our first washer and dryer! Well, "technically" we charged it on our Home Depot card, but still... Woohoo! Like a real family! We don't have to collect quarters anymore like poor college students! I feel so grown up. :)

That is all.

*emmett* ~ whose husband was so excited about the new washer and dryer, he stayed up until 3:00 am doing all the dirty laundry he could find... while Emmett was fast asleep...

p.s. My husband is kinda strange like that.

Do You Live in a Big Titty?

My best friend Hanna gave her final speech in one of her classes yesterday. She came to a part in her speech where she wanted to say town or city. She was deciding which one to say when she came out with "titty"! LOL. Titty. Hanna said "titty" during class. *sigh* Too funny.

*emmett* ~ who is still laughing about titty... tee hee... titty...

p.s. ha ha ha... she said "titty"!

Grapefruit Take Over.

Grapefruit is my new favorite fruit. I mean, I hadn't had one in like... umm... years or something. Then I saw this neato-frito grapefruit knife that I just *had to have*. And what's a grapefruit knife without grapefruit?

So... I've been eating lots of grapefruit lately. It has taken over first place which was previously held by the banana. Now, don't get me wrong... I still love me my bananas, but Mmmm... that grapefruit... the taste seems new to me. Fresh. Sweet. Yummy.

I do feel sort of bad for the banana though. As I was eating my grapefruit yesterday, the bunch of bananas stared sadly at me. I tried to avoid looking at them, but I couldn't help it. They hold a special place in my heart.

So yeah, this morning, I had a banana for breakfast. And he was happy. That is all.

*emmett* ~ who still really loves grapefruit

Crap Water.

Did I mention yet that our tap water tastes like hydrogen peroxide? And believe me... I know what *that* crap tastes like!

Our tap water is so disgusting that after I brush my teeth, I feel like I need to brush my teeth again to get the nasty taste and smell out. But I can't because, like I said, it tastes like skunk pee.

That's all.

*emmett* ~ who is now going to try to get that taste out of her mouth...

I'm Back!

Well... we made it to Rhode Island (and the photo above is our new home [the door on the right] on base housing).

We left home on July 29th, and we got to our house on August 16th. Fourteen days of that was spent IN THE CAR! Yes, FOURTEEN DAYS! But... we're still sane and still married. :) LOL. No... we actually had a wonderful time. Ruby and Amber (the puppies) were so good! They didn't bark or cry once in the car. They were perfect.

Well, I have LOTS to tell you guys and gals because SO much happened in the month and a half I was gone. But I'll do that later. Okay... I'll tell you now. You don't have to twist my arm.

Jeremy and I turned 23 on July 30th! Hooray! (Yes, we have the same birthday.) :)

My sister got married! (Photo of me and Shaina with our two cousins, Carol and Lilly.)

The next photo is of Shaina's best friend (the one who adopted Octavius!), Shaina and me... laughing hysterically as we take a photo of us all flexing. We had SO much fun together! We were all in gymnastics together... totally The Three Musketeers growing up, so it was so fun to be all together again. :-)

My sister's pregnant with another girl! (But not twins this time... tee hee...)

My parents are moving to New England from Colorado!

My parents bought a restaurant in Vermont yesterday!

I'm coaching gymnastics again! (WOOHOO!)

I was offered the head-coaching position for the Middletown High School gymnastics team! (This in addition to my other coaching job.)

I FINALLY decided on a career path!

I'm going to be a registered dietician!

Okay... so... I think that's about it. Well, there's probably lots more, but I'll let all you little monkeys know when they come to me.

Take care. Good to be back...

*emmett* ~ who really loves living on this island...
