store windows - 2 birds - 0

so yesterday a second bird dies by flying into the door of Art & Soul and trying to exit through the window. i wish they would stay out of my store. it happened for the first time last week....we have always had inquisitive brown birds but usally they hop in and hop out....some of the dumber ones have not made it out on thier own. it freaks me out and makes me sad when they hit the windows. yesterday a police officer happened to be walking by and he helped me get the bird out of my store.

Happy Anniversary Love!

HOLY GUACAMOLE - today is our 6th wedding anniversary...where did all that time go? I am so thankful for my husband and our relationship. we celebrated last night by going to a flogging molly concert that was definately a new experience for me. david and i went to many flogging molly "shows" (back when they played in small venues) before we were even dating and while we were dating. i really enjoy their music and especially the penny whistle/fiddle player she is amazing. so back in the day we actually got to be right next to the stage and listen to the music and enjoy the crazy antics of this irish punk rock band (i think). well last night opened my eyes to how crazy flogging molly fans are...i was warned before we went, but i never expected what the show was like. As soon as the band came on we were rushed by dozens of people trying to push thier way to what would become one of 2 mosh pits. Then during the show we were pushed and stepped on and we witnessed some crazy stuff. i am glad that i went and i stayed right next to david and there were some other nice guys that protected me and the other girls near by. one thing i can say is no matter how crazy it got in the pit if someone fell, everyone made sure that person got up and was ok. oh and did i mention girls were in the pit with all these big sweaty guys!! it was insane!! i really did have a good time and i will probably go next time if they come back to Atlantic city.
ps we are going out to dinner late tonight after art & soul closes...happy 6th anniversary love.

its official

I'm SICK! So thanks to my loving husband who had a cold before he left...I now have the same cold. It started with a sore throat then aches and chills. I am looking forward to the aches and chills being gone...oh and i am thankful for my stash of puffs ultra, because (yes this is me whining) my nose wont stop running. i woke up at 3am then 4am then 5am until 8 when i really had to get up because my faucet of a nose decided to run all night and i thought it was bleeding...not fun! i even took nasty nasty nyquil and it helped a little but only from midnight to 3am. that seems like too short of a time. i dont like to take medication mostly cause im no good at swallowing pills, but nyquil we have is in liquid tonight i will take it again and hope for the best.

on the road

so david and big dave ( his dad) are going on a road trip/motorcycle week. they are trailering their bikes down south the myrtle beach for BIKE WEEK but first they are stopping in New Bern to see Davids uncle eddie. Uncle Eddie has an art gallery showing right now and he is going to give david some tips on painting. So where does that leave me?? Well I am in charge of Jesse - big dave's dog who loves me so much! And I am having girl fest 06 - two friends are staying over and we have big plans to hit the gym...take some aerobics loads of chick flicks...oh and do homework, since they are both in school. I am excited to get to hang out with them, especially Karisa, because she is moving away in the summer and I am gonna miss her so much. Even though I am going to miss my husband I am thankful for good friends to keep me from going insane. I hope the boys have fun!!

climbing under the house

believe it or not it wasnt as scary as i thought it would be. i did see some BIG spider webs but no spiders and it wasnt until later when i told cousin jimmy about my expedition that he told me he always thinks he is going to see a snake....hmmm i am glad i didnt see or even think about seeing a snake. so i went under the house to turn on the outside water for big dave. i actually had was my first under house adventure.
