She Thinks She's SO Sneaky..

The other day Sophie was trying to apply lip gloss to pretty much any surface she could get it to stick to (this explains why our minivans side window has been a tad bit "cloudy" lately..) and when I explained that if she didn't stop I was going to have to take the lip gloss away (the horror!) she quite snippily replied..
"Well, I don't want you to take it, so I'm going to go hide it.
DON'T follow me.. and DON'T look in my jewelry box."
I hope she's always this easy to figure out.

Well LOOKY There!

I hesitate to even state that my computer might actually be fixed for good this time.. in fear I just may jinx it.. but I'm gutsy like that.. and going to share that it has now been up and running for almost 4 days straight. I'm a little giddy.
It's like having a new baby in the house-- minus the diapers. Everyone wants to sit by it and play with it.. marveling at the miracle it truly is. I'm not proud I've now been sitting at it a full hour this morning.. the hour I'm usually making beds and starting laundry.. but again.. baby analogy.. and we all know those things can't always get done for the first little while. I just want to bask in the pleasure of it functioning a little longer before getting on with my day. Who knows.. maybe I'll jaunt on over to Facebook, check the weather report, download pictures from the last SIX months, or just look up cute shoes and bathing suits. The possibilities are endless. Ahhh. Being unproductive is SO relaxing.

Whadda' ya know.. crashed again.
Those guys at the repair shop have hardly earned their computer geek status. Bad glasses alone, apparantley do not a skilled- techy make. (Kiddin' nerdy dudes. Don't go erasing my identity now..)
I actually think it's a bung-computer issue, more than a they're not-nerdy enough issue.. but I find mocking others somehow eases my frusteration.
So it's back in the shop.
With the nerdy dudes.
We can only hope for the best.
If it never runs again.. it was sure fun while it lasted.

Well HELLO There!

No really. It's ME! KATY!!
(Did you wet yourselves just a teeny bit??)
And I'm not even at the public library! I'm in my very own house.. on my very own chair.. in front of my very own.. wait for it.. PROFESSIONALLY REPAIRED, no-joke, computer!
I've never felt so high.
It has been OVER 3 months.. as in.. maybe even 100 days, since I have had any real kind of consistant cyber-world access, and I kinda feel like the 5th grader that moved away for her Dads job that didn't work out so has moved into Grandmas house back in her home town, showing up at middle school hoping her old friends let her sit at the lunch table! Do you even REMEMBER me?? Does my family look VAGUELY familiar?? Take a minute.
It'll come to you.
Oh the moments I have missed!! The posts that have past me by!! Is blogging even still a THING?? Are there new trends and fonts I'm behind on?? Am I allowed back in??
I feel, so, BEHIND. But I'm a fighter..and determined to forge ahead.. not dwelling on the past (or even really making a fervent effort to catch up on yours, or mine.. cause that's just overwhelming-- and a given that children would miss feedings, and underwear would not get washed.) SO! I'm startin' fresh!
Join me.. won't you??
(Unless ofcourse, a newer, even cooler girl moved in on my side bar slot on your own blog, ya know, while I was away.. and you must choose to leave me behind. Understandable. Hurtful.. but understandable.)
But being that it has been, winter.. and it is still, COLD.. ya really haven't missed out on much from me. Lots of driving Jesse to school.. searching for the perfect work-out pant, watering the chickens, and singing Taylor Swift songs really, really loud.
WOW. Maybe it's an O.K thing I haven't been here to bore you to falling tears.
So for now.. I will just delight in the fact that I will have access to all of YOUR adventures.. and leave you with some of the things that have come out of my kids mouths lately that entertain me WAY more than the Redbox rentals I've been checking out.. (Example: 2012. Really? Honestly if that limo, or plane, barely missed one more falling building or piece of flying schrapnel, I was gonna lose it.)
So here's just a few of my latest favorites:
(Note.. I'm not forgetting that I have a son Jesse.. it's just that being 13 and all, he prefer I don't quote him so much.)

Sam, while lacing up his shoes for school, casually asked,
"Mom, do you know what a 'pimp-slap' is?"

Bo, when asked by his brother why he felt he should be allowed to play such mature games on the X-BOX, responded:
"I don't know. I just like them. Don't judge me."

And Sophie, when questioned about her possible need for a fresh pair of undies, replied,
"I don't know Mom. Smell if they smell JUICY."

On that note..
real glad to be back.
