Happy Hump Day!!!

Ok so today is the day where I usually ramble on and on about my everchanging crazy fabulous life and of course today is Nooo different!!  So grab a cup and stick around whilst I amaze you with all that is my world!

It's friggin hot here and although everything I have done to prepare for this heat which I knew was coming it is not working!  Have an A/C in the bedroom is nice but the living/dining room is like hell is visiting and won't go away!! Do you have any idea how cranky kids are when they are hot?!!  Give me a break already!!

One year ago my world started spinning out of control and I still have yet to accept it and move on. I know you all are probably tired of hearing it but honestly this is my one outlet where I don't have to look at peoples faces when I know all they are thinking is "get over it already!"  How do you get over losing a sibling?  How do you come to terms with the fact that your younger brother is gone?!!  I have no idea and have yet to even bring myself to watch the video of his celebration of life ceremony.  A year ago is when he started getting sick again and we found out his brain tumor was back and on a vengence tour through his brain.  A year ago I started praying like I have never prayed before and although the results I wanted did not come true I do believe that he held on as long as he did because of the prayers.

This weekend is the 4th of July celebration and as much as my kids are looking forward to it I am dreading the heat!!  I will do just as I did last year and bring the cooler filled with a bazillion water bottles in it with us and we will cool off as much as we can but it is still going to be hot.  Ughhhh!!!  I can't wait to hear what the MC says this year though about how many people are there....nice try guy but we all knew you were lying last year so get a new line!!   I do so enjoy fireworks though but honestly I believe we will see better fireworks on the boat ride at the end of July then on the 4th here. DD2 says she is going to do the pie eating contest again this year...I can't wait to see that again!! Hilarious  I tell ya!!
This was last year..they make the pies with jello in the bottom and whipped cream on top. As soon as the whipped cream was gone she was done!! LOL

Notice the hands..we call her bunny because she is constantly doing that with her arms and hands.. I told you she was special!! Notice the whipped cream all over her face and hair..yeah she had a blast and I couldn't stop laughing!

So heck yeah I am looking forward to seeing her do that again this year!! I am always up for a good laugh!

Now we have put off our trip to Rheinfalls for like 3 weeks because things just keep coming up so I am crossing my finger,toes, eyes, everything in hopes that we get to go next weekend! I am dying to see the falls and also go to Mainau island. It looks fabulous online and so I want to go!!!  Of course I pitch a fit people! I am in Europe and I want to see everything....duhhhh!!!  So maybe you all will be lucky enough to see pics in a few weeks...please cross your fingers for me that nothing else comes up and we can go!!! PPPLLLEEEAASSSEEEEEE!!!!

Ok ok I am done whining now!! I know you spit your coffee out all over your screen on that one..sorry for the mess and no I will NOT clean it for you!! Sheeesh you all are demanding now aren't you?!! *grins*

I guess that is enough rambling for the day. Hopefully I didn't bore you out of your ever loving minds and you will be back again tomorrow to see what kind of crazy lovely things I have been up to! Until then have a great day and try to stay cool I know I sure as heck am...bedroom with a/c here I come!!! LOL

I can't believe you guys are going to the 4th thing. No way could you get me out there, especially in this heat. Ack.

It's supposed to be 106 here on the 4th so I know what you mean about going out for the holiday celebration. Your pie eating bunny is so cute! So sorry about your brother ... I really can't imagine that feeling of loss. Hope you have a lovely holiday weekend with your family!

Don't feel bad about not "getting over" the loss of your brother. You take as much time as you need. No one can dictate how another grieves.

Your daughter is so adorable! Wish her luck from us on the pie eating thing! Have fun this weekend and stay hydrated!!

I haven't been following your blog for long
(because I am new to blogging) but I am so sorry for the loss of your brother. I can't believe ANYONE would ever even give you a "get over it" look....I would never recover.

But on a lighter note, I hope you have a wonderful weekend ;-)
