Why do I even have a Journal?

What do you want written on your gravestone and why?
"Told ya I was sick!!"
My grandma always said this is what she wanted on her stone because when my dad would call her, she would describe in detail every ache and pain she had and he would get mad and tell her he didn't call to hear all of that. The funniest part is that when he got older, he did the same damn thing, only worse. So we teased him that we were gonna put the above statement on HIS stone!

Well today I am finally tackling all of the dang chores I wanted to do all summer long. You know, spread it out so it's not such a huge freaking job all at once? HA! So now I'm trying to cram it all into 3 days. Yay me. I am the Queen of Procrastination.
It's that time again for fair. We leave Saturday and will be gone all week. I'm gonna try and sneak my laptop from the school. SSSHHH We'll see. Well I better go back to work, cuz I'm just procrastinating again. I'm just so dang good at it!

I really suck at updating this thing. I have discovered myspace and must confess I have been wooed away by all the cool ap's and teenage surveys I get to fill out on there. If anyone would like to add me, my myspace name is LEIGH and I'm in Wyoming. I'm not sure if that is enough info for people to find me on there, but it is what it is. So hopefully I have friends left on here that will add me to their myspace if they have it. Just make sure you say you are from LJ or else I will not approve. I'm picky like that.

Why do sick kids always get worse at night time? Is there a scientific study somewhere that documents this? If not there should be.

I figured I should post since it has been awhile. Things are about the same here. It's really strange to me how life just goes on even though there is a huge hole now where my parents were. The sun keeps coming up, the kids keep growing, the snow keeps flying. My mom would have hated this winter and I hate to think about that because she is buried in the cold earth with about 10 feet of snow on top of her. But then I have to remind myself she is not really there. I guess what I'm trying to say is that life has moved on, but I will forever and ever be different. I miss them so dang much. It's been 7 months and I still have those moments when I say oh I gotta call my mom and dad and tell them. Then I'm like, oh wait, I can't. My husband is so sweet when he says "Honey, they know, they saw." But it still hurts that I CANT talk to them. What hurts the most is how much they are missing with Wyatt and how much he is missing. He's only 3 and he does ask where Grandma and papa are. He remembers, at least for now, but will he always? They would have had SOO much fun with him. I'm so mad. MAD! Why did they have to go right now? Ya know? It's not fucking fair and I want my mommy and daddy back. It's irrational and immature but I don't care. It's how I feel.

Just thought I'd add another post so you all would know I really am back. I had such a lazy weekend and didn't really accomplish everything I wanted to. But I got lots of rest. Yay me! We just got another horse for Riley. This one used to belong to her Grandpa and when he heard the guy wanted to sell it, he called us. He's a palomino and is papered and registered. Extremely nice horse. The only problem is he just came up from Arizona, to Wyoming-- in the middle of winter!!! We are having to be especially attentive to him. He wears a coat at night and during the day we take it off to allow his winter hair to grow in. He definitely is confused as to why this is happening to him! Our 2 mares are curious, but cautious of him which is good! Don't need any fights. This winter is like the winters of my childhood. TONS AND TONS of snow! Probably 800 feet of snow, give or take. :) Well I'm gonna go scrub my son off and read him a book for night night time. I'll post more later, maybe some pics of our newest addition.2 comments - Leave a comment

Ok so I don't even know if I have any friends left. I sure hope so. Here is what happened. My last post was July 20th at 11:02pm. On July 21st at 1:30am, my father died. Then on July 27th at 8pm, my mother died. Both of them gone, with in 6 days. I'm still not over it, nor will I ever be, but I am finally able to start getting back into my old routine and decided to check on here to see if my friends are still there or if I need to start over. Please let me know if you are still out there. I miss ya!11 comments - Leave a comment

I am so incredibly pissed off it isn't even funny. I won't bore you with the details right now cuz I'm too pissed off to type it all up. I will bore you with it later when I am calmer. If I were to do it now all that would come out is something like "stupid motherfucking cocksucking piece of shit assfucking dicklickers," or something. And, besides, I'm a lady and ladies do not divulge in such vulgar language. teehee

Omg. I totally forgot to mention the wedding. My bro in law and my best friend finally got hitched and it was the best weekend EVER. My hubby's dad, and 2 uncles came up and we had so much fun connecting and bonding with them. I don't think this town will ever be the same. Talk about redneckville. It was friggin awesome. I will just let the pics speak for themselves. Hopefully this works cuz it wouldn't last night. And you REALLY need to see to appreciate.

Ok so life in the fast lane is, well, fast. I can't believe how fast summer is fading! I think I blinked. It's been so long since my last real post and so many things have happened that I'm just too friggin lazy to regale you all with the sordid details. I will, however, catch you up on just today, tonight, and this morning(cuz it's morning now). I was called and asked to make cinnamon rolls for the rodeo tomorrow, for them to sell. I am a fantastic cook, not conceited, just honest. So I said ok! Now, my oven is non existant as we are remodeling the kitchen. Soooooooo I made everything here and carted the rolls to my mom's house to let them raise and bake. Easy right? NO! Her freaking oven BURNT the first batch. Bastard. So back home to make the second batch. Now, this second batch made 54 cinnamon rolls. FIFTY FOUR. I needed 60. SIXTY. None of the first batch were even feasible to use. SOOOOO back to my house to make the 3rd batch. I frosted the last one at 12:30am. Yay me! Tomorrow is the rodeo, as I think I stated earlier in this post. My daughter will be chasing barrels and my son will bust a mean ol mutton. (If you do not understand my western lingo, comment and I will learn you how to speak as we speak in Wy-oh-men. Just not tonite, cuz I'm lazy and chillin' right now. And now, for your viewing pleasures:
edit: Well hell. Technology is against me today. I was gonna post pics of my cinnamon roll fiasco, but the internet is broke, sorta. So picture if you will the first batch, black on the bottom. The beautiful 2nd and 3rd batch. And finally, my disaster of a kitchen, which shall stay that way for a little while. Just so you know, it took me 5 attempts to post this entry and another 3 attempts just to add this EDIT!!! I need a new freaking modem. ARGH. I'm goin to bed.

I figured I should do a post since my last few posts have been meme's. Things are crazy as always here. My MIL arrived the other day. Yay. No it's ok, really. The wedding for my BIL is Saturday and I am Matron of Honor, so I've been pretty busy with all of that. My mom is not doing good at all and it's just a matter of time. I cried myself to sleep last night. I don't care how old you are, when you are losing a parent it feels like you are a little kid about to be orphaned. I'm gonna miss her so much. She's more then my mom, she's my best friend and a part of me will die with her. I'm trying really hard not to hold on, I don't want her to suffer anymore. It all just SUCKS. HARD. On top of everything else, my nephew, who was close to my age and one of my best friends, drowned in a freak accident last Thursday. I am still in a state of shock about that one. He was supposed to move back out here, from West Virginia, but just hadn't made it yet. And now I will never again see his smiling blue eyes and deep dimples again. I'll never again hear his infectious giggle. God I'm gonna miss the little shit! I think this is why I haven't posted a personal message in awhile, my life is very depressing right now and I didn't want to bring you all down. If you pray, please pray for us. We need it. I am going to post a pic of my nephew Frankie, to honor him. RIP Frank, we'll miss you like crazy!5 comments - Leave a comment
Frankie is on the right
Terrible picture, we were partying, I'll have to find a better one of him.
Frankie is on the right again.

I've been too long, I'm glad to be back"
Things sometimes get really crazy for you, and sometimes you have to get away from all the chaos.
But each time you stage your comeback, it's even better than the last!
