I Didn’t Want To Love You

credit to Farmville Market

Dear Farmville,

I am angry with you. You knew I was weak with  the boredom of a kid on bed rest and my favorite laptop off getting fixed. Yet you didn’t care. You lured me in with your promise of a pixel perfect life. You offered me shiny apples and adorable little animals. As our relationship grew you gave me a house, a wedding gazebo and even a winery. Honestly, what was I supposed to do? What girl could walk away from such fine gifts? I have always been a sucker for flowers and here you were giving me bunches every hour.  I was flattered. I felt special. Then I found out you were giving lots of girls these special ‘mystery gifts’. And still I couldn’t leave you. Even when I knew that each time I leveled up it was just another notch on your proverbial belt. This relationship has to change. It isn’t healthy for either one of us. I know you promised at level 30 I could get the mansion but I just don’t feel right about this. I have children. Sure, they would rather me stay with you. They are more than happy that mom is preoccupied fertilizing her crops but how long can this really last? We both know it has to end sometime. The longer we drag it out the harder it will be on both of us. We can still be friends. I will always care for you. It just wasn’t meant to be.

Your Friend,

Barb

PS…just saw you are going to give me a shiny red pick up truck. I always was a sucker for trucks. Maybe we can work something out but you have to stop being so demanding, OK?

PSS… don’t ya hate it when a post won’t stop swirling around in your head at night? I’m still on vacation, I’m still on vacation, I’m still on vacation :)

On Vacay

Yeah, I wish that’s where I was. Maybe if our Make A Wish comes through in time for Halloween I will be trick or treating on the beach :) You all know I have a lot going on and now I have to send my computer in for 2 weeks of work. Yes, we have 7 PC’s in this house but I am taking it as a sign I need to spend some quality time with the family. We find out for sure Wed. if Carter will need surgery. My mom is moving (and we are all helping) and this is Cons last summer before highschool officially starts. So, I am going to enjoy the sun, love my family, tweet and FB a bit, harvest crops on Farmville and generally kick back with my wonderful hubby. Hope you all get a little bit of the same. I will still be around and will have to post some of the stuff we are doing for PR’s sake but wanted to let you know I am downshifting for a bit. Make sure you have your email in the little box on the left so you get an email when I do decide to post :) Love ya! B

My Mother-In-Law is Killing Me Here!

I hope you all are having a wonderful summer. Here? Not so much! Between the oldest one taking Honors Bio in summer school and the younger one not being allowed to get out of bed, summer is just kinda sucky. I’m bored, Carts bored, Bob and Con are overloaded.

So we have been playing with our food. Yeah, you all know how this post is going to right?

I saw these adorable Toy Story alien cupcakes in Family Fun

From FamilyFun.com

and we tried to make them. Ours turned out like this:

Our Attempt at Toy Story 3 Alien Cupcakes

Didn't have mentos. Makes a BIG difference!

Honestly, you all are probably pretty damn impressed I made something at least edible right? Just say yes.

and then a package arrived from Grandma today. It was a big package! Full of cookies….

It was full at one point today :)

and in it were these little cuties:

Which are Burger Bite Cookies and are too cool for school. But seriously??? How does she expect me to compete with that? It’s evil genius on her part.

*disclosure: we really do love Grandma! And everyone is happily noshing on the goodies.
