for some reason my blog doesn't want to play nice today
i wanted these words to go with the castle picture, but noooo it's NOT going to let me. cripes, it's taken me 4 tries just to finish this stupid thought! i type fifteen words and it freezes up and moves me to the bottom of the page and i see only two of the words even on the effing screen! i almost scrapped the whole thing and made a whole new blog - but that felt too much like giving in! i'd pay the money so this thing isn't free, in hopes that it will run better - but that also feels like giving in!
stupid thing *shake my fist at it*

So anyways.... words with the german castle pic....

I never thought I'd be the one to say this out loud but *gasp* there are actually Perks to FB. Back when we were fresh out of HS we sent piles of snail mail. My twin and I sent letters (and phone calls) DAILY. The poor mail men must have really hated us. As much as snail mail is great (and we still send it btw), it doesn't have the instant gratification that we need with our Twin Fix.

Now thanks to the www and FB we can update ourselves daily with pics of us. I can see her & Spankx enjoying German castles. I can see Roo & Sock enjoying college days. I can see Mogie's children growing leaps and bounds. And when we squeeze the time in around all of that and our different time zones we even *dare I say it and jinx it* Vid Chat. I love being able to see their smiling faces :) (Yes Mogie - once I find the disk to load my vid cam again we will get to do it too! So be prepared...)

It's almost as good as living close enough to drive over and visit for an afternoon. ..Almost

Only 3 years, 7 months and 13 days until their little "vacation" is over.... And you know who you are when I say "they"

thanks for the reminder!
and ... ::sigh:: as much as i too loathe to admit that FB has a functional purpose besides driving me crazy like the obnoxious preppy popular kids in h.s. we liked to mock ... its true ... it would b horrible to not have such instant access to watch my/your/our kids grow up ... siblings in insta mode and those m.i.a. brothers we would otherwise never get the chance to see.

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...


    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)

    I would like your thoughts, help, comments, feedback. I am not a robot!

    No matter how serious life gets, you still gotta have that one person you can be completely stupid with
