It's my baby girl! A US Soldier!

See my precious baby girl!

She would be the one leaning against the tree! I can just hear her now! "I call the tree!!!!"


The girl just in front of her has become a dear friend to her and she is sad that they won't be going on together. But she will be reunited with another friend from our state when she gets to school, so hopefully she won't miss her too badly.

I am so proud of them all!

I'm soooooo disappointed....

So are my 20-year-old and I the ONLY people on the planet that remember "Rocko's Modern Life" and "KaBlam!" from Nickelodeon? Two of THE BEST shows EVER to be on TV?!?!?!?

I am so disappointed. I mean who can forget the episode where Rocko loses his gas cap and has to go the DMV for a new driver's test and during the eye exam the examiner pulls on his eyes and says "Turn your head and cough." Or who can forget the superheroes on "Kablam!"? With lines like, "He's super strong, and super naked!" Oh come on! Have you been living under a rock?

Well if YOU are one of the ones that DON'T remember, those links above are where you can refresh your memory, and if you are a DIE HARD Rocko fan, then NOW is the time to sign up to Netflix, because they have now added them to their line up of FREEBIES you can watch online (as long as you have a subscription to their movies by mail service, which I do, and I LOVE! You just don't get customer service these days the way you do with Netflix! They are amazing and I can't say enough good things about them!) You can watch several seasons, and you can stream them to your TV with a Wii now! Yipee! I can't wait to tell The Tomboy (who graduates from Basic on the 25th, by the way! WOO HOO!), she will be soooo excited, she will spend the first week she is home streaming Rocko! I hope they don't pull them before she is able to get home and re-watch them all!

Now if they will just add "KaBlam!", I will be in classic Nickelodeon twisted cartoon heaven! I may have to write them and BEG them to add it!

And NO this is not an ad for Netflix and I know you are probably thinking "I can't believe I just read this entire post."

He leaves me speechless.....then I blog it....

I know, I have said it a MILLION times, but if it were not for my wonderfully funny hubby, I wouldn't have a blog. He has SUCH a quick wit, and he keeps me laughing all the time. I think that is what makes me love him the most. Well, other times I just shake my head and think, "I married an idiot." Yeah, that one more often. And then I fight the urge to ask myself who is the bigger idiot. I mean, I married him.

Anyway, tonight we were standing in the kitchen, and we were talking about my cousin's husband. He is THE BIGGEST procastinator I have ever seen in my life. Really. I mean, Rat Man procrastinates (don't ALL men), but Scott is just HORRIBLE. And it drives her totally nuts. I have never ever seen anyone that will put stuff off for literally YEARS before they will do something. Something that would take about 15 minutes to do, no less.

She and I had a conversation last night about how bad he was, and I was, of course, bitching about Randy being one too. She would have a story, then I would have a story. You know, girl talk.

So tonight as Rat Man and I were talking about Scott and he being procrastinators and me telling him that Scott was worse that even he is he says "So, you want to make it a competition?"

Me: "Uhhh, NO, you better not! If it is going to be a competition, then it better be YOU being LESS of a procastinator than him, so I can brag about it instead of bitching about it being the other way around. You better not get WORSE about putting things off!"

"Oh okay," says Rat Man with a shrug, "I'll just worry about it later."

I just slapped my forehead and walked away. There just isn't anything you can say to that.
