Babble Brain

Yeah, someone found my blog! I am a 32 yr. mother of three beautiful children and proud wife of my wonderful husband~ Matthew. I am blessed beyond my comprehension! I hope you too will be~ His gift is free if you receive. You have nothing to lose and all to gain! Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace that you are saved, through your faith -not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. Not by works, so that no one can boast.

Monday we have a Paul Mitchell Color Class coming to the Salon and I get to be the model! I wonder what color I will be?!

Count down

1 day till Ground Hog's Day
11 days till MY BIRTHDAY
14 days till Valentine's Day- overrated!
22 days till we celebrate our 13th anniversary
25 days till our actual anniversary

I cannot wait till our anniversary! We go on a date night maybe every 3 months, if lucky! We see each other @ 1/2 hour per day in passing shifts and maybe a few hours sat and sun. It sucks- I'm sick of it and there is currently no end in sight which is even more depressing. I cant wait to have him all to myself for two whole days for our anniversary!


I want to wake up to snow everywhere! I want Matt to get home from work safely and then I want SNOW!! I don't have to go to work! If we are gonna get it I want alot!

Little Big Town

Tues. I did a haircut at Bella's and this lady was the aunt to Little Big Town's singer. Dark haired one- he was her nephew! She was visiting, she was from Alabama. We had a great conversation! She always gets her hair cut out of state, so she said she may be back. From Alabama to Mi for a haircut, that was a compliment cuz she said she had never had a good cut before.

This was ALMOST me on Fri. I had stopped at the newer 4 way stop on Temperance and Summerfield. I saw a car looking as tho it MAY not stop but it was a ways away and all the cars where stopped so I went ahead and took my turn pulling out when this lady comes barreling thru the stop sign. She didnt even attempt to stop until I blarred my horn and started sliding . Brakes are screeching cars are sliding and Im saying words I shouldnt say. I was SOOO MMMAADDD!!! She almost SMOKED us! My heart pounded till I arrived at Crossroads. Twice this week! Freaky!

Potty Trained!

I believe we are officially potty trained- Maddison, that is!!! You can thank me for sparing you the nasty internet poop images, I was so close to using an image but I thought I better be polite and uase this boring picture. She is pooping and peeing on the potty!! She even saved enough potty money to go buy a doggie at the hallmark store she saw and wanted. Yeah Maddi!!!!

Ford Excursion On Fire!

So we are driving home from Ann Arbor today on I-94 and across the median the opposite traffic there is a Ford Excursion up in flames! Just like the picture- Major flames! There were a few cars in front of and behind the truck on the side of the road. Hopefully everyone got out cuz if they didn't- well...It must have happened seconds before we approached cuz there wasn't a single rescue crew on site yet, but plenty of people were on there cell phones. I have never seen anything like that! Now what annoys me than anything is I will never know what happened and I want to know! I hope it wasn't a fault of Ford!

Then we were almost in a MAJOR accident! We were driving along fine and all of sudden the car in front of drives off the shoulder and right there the next car in front of us is crawling! Apparently the guy that swerved to the side wasnt paying attention and all of a sudden swerved leaving us to almost crash into the car in front of us!

I was almost speechless and I yelled MATT!!! and he swerved to the other lane, I think Matt glanced away for a split second, cuz we should have been prepared. I believe my heart jumped out stood still and popped back inside my chest! Praise God we didn't crash!!

Allied Waste

Allied Waste fits their name- they are GARBAGE!!!! Ok, We had BFI for MANY years until they kept jacking up their prices, we then switched to Action Disposal. We PURCHASED our can from BFI @ 6-7 years ago and paid almost $100 for it. We cancelled BFI (Now Allied- Allied bought BFI) within the year. Action gave us a sticker to cover up the BFI sign and said since we have a can that we paid for we can just use that. SO last Thursday they collect our garbage and take our can! No letter, no warning, no notice- its gone! So it took a day to figure out and get them to admit they took it, cuz they were collecting all the old BFI cans and replacing them with Allied cans, but since we have no service with them they aren't replacing ours, which we wouldnt expect that. But we also didnt expect them to STEAL our can! We paid for it, they stole it. Even if we didnt pay for it wouldn't good business give you a notice, now we have to pay $85 for a new can with no preperation. And why are they all of a sudden taking it when its been about a year. And besides its ours. They have no record of us paying for it or not paying for it and neither do we cuz its been 6-7 years. So they have no proof but still decided to steal our can! IM SOOOO MAD!!!! And when we called they were rude and fought with us. We called the cops and Bedford Now and the Blade- they are messing with wrong person and Im not done!!!! They are suppose to get back with us when they talk to customer service- yeah Im sure they are going to call back when pigs fly. Am I being irrational? Thats our $100 can and Im not paying for another $100 can when I had one a week ago!
