Oh. My. Goodness.

As you know, I have been "missing" for a few days. Here is why....

Don't know what that is? How about this?

Needless to say....this is quite a shock to us all!

Nahhhhh, just kidding!!!


OK, OK, OK.....Bad joke I know! But I just couldn't let an
April Fool's day go by without a little teasing, could I?

***I have already warned my mother that she may be getting some
phone calls about this post....she knows the truth.....THANKS***

OK, for the real reason I have been a little behind in my posting.

My next entry will be my 100th post. Yeah, 100 posts since December.
You think I like to talk a lot?

Don't answer that.

I wanted to do a VERY SPECIAL entry for my 100th post. So, I decided there is no better story to tell than the story of my daughter, Chelsea. I have been working on this post for the past couple of months, and it has taken me much longer than I anticipated. I want it to be "just perfect" ya know?

I have written, erased, rewritten, added, deleted....you name it.

Plus, I have misplaced several of the pictures I wanted to use....UGH!
So I have been trying to find copies wherever I can.

During this months-long process, I have quickly added post after post. Before I knew it, I was at #97, then #98, and now here at #99.
I hope to have Chelsea's story finished within the next few days....
so please be patient with me!

I promise to be back to my old "can't shut me up" self after this is posted!

In the mean time, if you want to know what I am up to....


You can look on the left of my blog, (I swear it's down there somewhere, buried under all my "stuff") and read what I am doing throughout the day!

If you can't find it there....here is my link:


Look me up....


OK, here are a few TRUE things going on in my life right now...lol!

-It is TRUE that my dear, sweet hubby, Marty will be
celebrating a little birthday this week.

SHHHHHHH, don't tell anybody though.

He HATES birthdays!

Here is what he got:

He's so excited! I can hear Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor grunting right now!!

We will be doing a little more celebrating later in the week (on his actual birthday), so I will try to post pictures at a later date.

As much as he HATES birthdays, he LOVES it when
I make his favorite dessert...

Strawberry, Pineapple Cobbler!

I'm DROOLING just thinking about it!



-It is TRUE that I just hit 30 Followers!!

WELCOME to all of my new followers!!
I'm sure we will be BFF's in no time at all!!

(I'm sorry ya'll had to come in during this "slow" spell.)

I will try to make it up to you.


-It's TRUE that we had a FREAK TORNADO WARNING Saturday night!

And you know what we did? That's right.....we stayed out on the
back porch and watched the whole thing!

We didn't get any storms (thank goodness), but we got a
TON of video of lightning!

The small white dot on the left is actually the MOON)

-It is TRUE that Jameson hasn't gotten any more notes home from school,
but he did get a sticker marked out yesterday.


At least school will be out in a couple of months!

And I wanted to thank all of you who offered me such encouraging words about my last post about the subject! At least I know he is "normal"...lol!

-It is TRUE that I have become addicted to finding "Hatchlings"
on FaceBook over the past couple of days.

I swear, I CANNOT search for those little buggers right before bed.
After finding about 300 over the past two days.....
I literally dreamed about them ALL NIGHT LONG!

Well, I guess that is about it for the past few days in the Hill household.

So, what have ya'll been doing lately?

  13. Awww, I should have emailed my hubby on April Fools Day that I bought a HUMMER!!! He's in Japan right now. He would have FLIPPED, and probably flown all the way back to WA just to take it back to the dealership!!! LOLOL!!!
