mistakes SUCK and just ruined my entire month........
because the idiot lenders sent the wrong loan docs for us to sign we have to go back and sign AGAIN today (all kids in toe) and theres not a chance in hades of us getting our keys tomorrow ,unless by some miracle the title comp gets the funds by 1130 am which the chances of that happening are about none to none since they wont even GET hte paperwork we are signing today untill hte overnight delivery place delivers it whenever THAT will be. Which means that the EARLIEST I could POSSIBLY get my keys is monday "SOMETIME" which means that I will get to have NO part whatsoEVER in moving into my very first house which is extremly depressing (yes iv already cried about it 3 or 4 times today im stupid i know) Im extremly grumpy right now and mad at hte world in general and extremly mad at idiot paperpushers youd think that theyd make surethey sent the right docs BEFORE they sent them youd think title companys would work during non bank hours youd think that since it was hte freaking lenders fault and they admitted they screwed up that theyd accept a faxed copy of hte loan docs to start the process since theyl get hte originals hours later anyway I mean geesh it isnt MY FAULT they screwed up why am I being punished for it ok im crying again gotta go need to change diaers washmy face go load the car with kids n go get Kenny n drive an hour to sign more papers that iv now sighned a minimum of 3 times andthen drive an hour back and then go get evans taekwondo pics done and then i guess spend the weekend staring at a wall and pumping milk in hopes that hteres enough for Kiara while im unable to nurse and still LIVING HERE!

was 1 heck of a day.... I had my Preop at 1030 (thank you Sheryl for watching the boys) They drew blood mademe pee in a cup sign abunchof forms went over my day before instructions ( I have to stop nursing at 5pm the night before due to some stuff they r giving me i must pump alot more hten i planned on sigh) and that was that.. stopped on my way home and got everyone lunch.... as we are eating Kenny radios me (we have nextels) and tells me we are to go sign the papers at 3 pm ok the nerves hit lol I lost 3 fingernails from biting them and couldnt finish my lunch luckily Sheryl could watch the kids more for us (Thank you again!) so we go sign the paperwork I must say everuthing we signed yesterday we had already signed at least one time before some of it actualy had our signatures on it and we had to resign them lol we noticed they had our first as P&I instead of interest only ( about a 200 dollar a month difference) and the tax and ins wasnt impounded but we figured whatever lol sign it if its wrong well go with what we signed if possible.. it only took us about 45 minutes to sign everything... no we didnt get the keys lol we dont get those till its funded and recoreded (sigh) which they hoped it would fund by this evening and they could record it friday and give us our keys... anyway we are just about home when our phone ring its our broker says i hear you guys sighned today n we say yes and ask about the ins only and the impounds not being on there and he says thats NOT what i submitted this isnt good (great!) and he lets us go and says hell call us back well he calls us back a little bit later and says we are going to have to resign the loan stuff (joy) we ask if we can just go with what we signed today (its only 200 dollars and itd all go towards principle so not to big a deal) but he sais no your going to get what I told you that youd get .. he said signing today shouldnt affect our closing any (yeah right title people suck they are the MOST neccesary part of closing and yet they dont ever work before or after business hours you can get ahold of realtor mortgage broker lender EVERYONE else after hours but not them!) UGHHNNNNN SHOOT ME I HAVE TO MOVE THIS WEEKEND! I am having surgery tuesday hello I will be WORTHLESS from monday on (im homebound monday because of the meds they r giving me and im not allowed to lift over 10 lbs for6 weeks after theysay ha!) so if we dont get the keys friday or get to move this weekend we wont be moving for at LEAST another week because kenny cant take more weekdays off to move he will be off hte day of my surgery only as it is.... oh yeah incase i wasnt stressed enough Kiara is sick i think she has croup she has an apointment at 930 today then at some point we have to go resign and tonight evan has taekwon do pictures ... i had hte WORST stress hunger headache last night everything hurt me i had the shakes was nauseated all that fun stuff.... Im stressed my mortgage broker said that signing today shouldnt affect the funding in time for our keys (lets pray for that) I truly dont know what we will do if it doesnt

definitions a funny
of the female language...............
Words Women Use
This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
If she is getting dressed, this is half an hour.
Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given 5 more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
This is the calm before the storm. This means "something" and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with "nothing" usually end in "fine".
This is a dare, not permission, DON'T DO IT!
Although not actually a word, the loud sigh is often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing".
This is one of the most dangerous statements that woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
This is the least used of all words in the female vocabulary. If a woman is thanking you, do not question it; just say you're welcome and back out of the room slowly.
Send this to the Men you know and want to help, or to the Women you know for a laugh.

El Sobrante Barbie:
This Barbie is truly one of a kind. Comes with Biker Ken & his Harley and a

a heartwarming story.....
My question to all of you is: Would you have made the same choice?
At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves learning disabled children, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended.
After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he offered a question.
"When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does is done with perfection. Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other children do. He cannot understand things as other children do. Where is the natural order of things in my son?"
The audience was stilled by the query.
The father continued. "I believe, that when a child like Shay comes into the world, an opportunity to realize true human nature presents itself, and it comes, in the way other people treat that child."
Then he told the following story: Shay and his father had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing baseball.
Shay asked, "Do you think they'll let me play?"
Shay's father knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but the father also understood that if his son were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging. Shay's father approached one of the boys on the field and asked if Shay could play.
The boy looked around for guidance and, getting none, he took matters into his own hands and said, "We're losing by six runs and the game is in the eighth inning. I guess he can be on our team and we'll try to put him in to bat in the ninth inning."
In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay's team scored a few runs but was still behind by three.
In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and played in the outfield.
Even though no hits came his way, he was obviously ecstatic just to be in the game and on the field, grinning from ear to ear as his father waved to him from the stands.
In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay's team scored again. Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was on base, and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat.
At this juncture, let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game?
Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was all but impossible 'cause Shay didn't even know how to hold the bat properly, much less connect with the ball.
However, as Shay stepped up to the plate, the pitcher moved in a few steps to lob the ball in softly so Shay could at least be able to make contact.
The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed. The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards Shay.
As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right back to the pitcher.
The pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman. Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game.
Instead, the pitcher took the ball and turned and threw the ball on a high arc to right field, far beyond the reach of the first baseman.
Everyone started yelling, "Shay, run to first! Run to first!"
Never in his life had Shay ever made it to first base. He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled.
Everyone yelled, "Run to second, run to second!"
By the time Shay rounded first base, the right fielder had the ball.
He could have thrown the ball to the second-baseman for the tag, but he understood the pitcher's intentions and intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third-baseman's head.
Shay ran toward second base as the runners ahead of him deliriously circled the bases toward home.
Shay reached second base, the opposing shortstop ran to him, turned him in the direction of third base, and shouted, "Run to third!"
As Shay rounded third, the boys from both teams were screaming, "Shay, run home!"
Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the hero who hit the "grand slam" and won the game for his team.
"That day," said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, "the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this world."
