Coming out of the woodworks.

The Happy Family

Hair related: WOW sooo looks like we are about go big time here.  Should be exciting but i admit i am kind of nervous.  Not sure if i have enough time to get everything done the way I love to do things now.

--------------------------------

ON that note, in the last two weeks all of a sudden all these past friends have been coming out of the wood works.   Not sure what to think of all that, but it is nice to see what everyone is up to.

It is amazing how much people are still in dayton or columbus ohio.  Not that many have moved that far away from where they lived when i hung out with them. 

Kind of interesting.

Mother's Day, and life is just way to much fun.  
10:55am 14/05/2007
 
 
The Happy Family
OKAY so mother's day was AWESOME!!!!!! 

Wesley made a whole bunch of cute stuffy at school!  HE was soo proud.  

We went to the beach Saturday. Of course only took swimsuits for the kids and I still ended up waist deep in the water and Philly was thigh deep.  WHOOPS!  hehehe We could have stopped by my mum's house to pick up some dry clothes as we have plenty over there. (she is a doll, she helps with the laundry as my life has been taken over by HAIR and i just honestly do not have the time) But came on home instead!  Wesley we are used to having him go in the ocean, but kaya usuay doesnt even want to get her feet wet.  This time however she even went in up to chest deep!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    SO next time we are all taking swimsuits with us because let me tell you driving home with jean capris with salt water is not COMFY!    Philly had on jean shorts. Not comfy either.

Okay so next time we will stop! HAHHAA!

SO sunday we head over there and had a cool little dinner and everyone got to hang out. I was able to get SEVERAL pages done on the disney memory book that i am having made.   It looks very nice!  just have about two more sets of pages to do and I should be done.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ON a side note, you ever notice how some peopie are only happy if you arent doing that well, but if you are doing very well, and things are going great, it just drives them nuts?   I have a few people like that. But it amuses me.  Plus if gives you that extra boast to make sure that all of your ventures turn out great! 

That being said, to improve on my work, we are adding machine weft hair to our line.   It is still virgin hair!   Very nice tiny machine wefts. 
I hope to get  picture up of them this evening.  

I do wish i had more free time cause i just do not have time for the small stuff like cleaning, laundry and all that anymore (not with over several hundred emails a day and tons of packages to ship everyday) but as long as I still have time to make for the kids then that is all that matters!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wesley only has 9 days left of school. He is crushed.   (he actually has llike 8 and a half) 

He could go to school all year long and he would be happy. 

However he is excited about going up to Ohio and he is just as excited about going back to disney!   

The first family trip was awesome but this next one wil have both brothers going with and that is just going to freaking rock!

HAHHAHA my husband picking up my words, he said trendy! HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAA!

Mother's day and other musings. Kids pictures in the last post  
10:10am 11/05/2007
 
 
The Happy Family
OKAY soo my mom and my mum have mentioned all week about how this weekend is mother's day. I STILL FORGOT! hahahah so no one will be getting cards from me!  (figured out a way to keep my mom and mom in law straight. I call my mom, mom or mommy, and my mother in law Mum hehehehe  figured she would get me if i called her mummy! HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA  but the mom and mum seems to work great when they are both together. Tested it out at disney.   Hate called them by name cause it always feels like i am calling my mom by name and it just weirds me out.  

Luckily most people kind of expect that as they know my butt was kicked this past month with graduations and prom. Couldnt keep enough hair in for everyone. Can not WAIT until the new shipment arrives. Though I swear it feels like half of it is sold already.

At the end of may we are on our way to ohio. Taking Wesley to the Temptation concert. Or as he calls them the dudes with the blue shoes. Going to try and see everyone while we are there.

Trying to figure out a way to put in going to Dayton Ohio, Columbus Ohio, and still hitting the Indy children's museum all in at one time. My parents took us all the time growing up and i really want to get the kids there while they are the same age my brother and I were.

However have to remember to save vacation time of the hubby's as we are going back to disney in OCT. plus i wanna try and go to Pilobolus performance in Columbus Oh which is Nov. 8th.  And i figure we arent going to be in the clear forever here.  Been here 6 years now and only two (three) storms?  Just alot of things i want to do this year. 

That is the only thing I HATE about SC. I am used to going to the theatre and seeing shows all the time and I want the kids to experience that live not just through CDs or DVDs. The arts are just not like what they are up in ohio down here. 

 ________________________________________________________

For those that didnt know, last entry has some cute kid pictures in it.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OHHH i do have a new thing to add to my day. Hurricane season is almost here. WHOO HOO!  dont like them hittin gplaces, but LOVE tracking them.  Hmmm Or does Andrea being around mean that it has started? Think you have to hit the actual date to say it started.

On that note, I need a coke zero. My brain is turned down this morning.

A COUPLE OF DISNEY PICTURES!  
11:07pm 06/05/2007
 
 
The Happy Family
SOOO just a sample of the disney pictures! Yeah, i know, we are goin gto need to get a heavy duty baseball bat. Wesley already has older women (3rd graders) chasing after him. Nothing is quite so sickening then hear a little 3rd grade girl says "HIIIIIIIIIII WEEEEESSSSLLLEEEEEEEYYYYY!!!!" I cant even begin to tell you how many little girls come up to me every afternoon asking is wesley going to house of bounce today?

SO anyway, pictures pictures pictures.

just cause people are going nuts and want to see them so bad! hahahhaha!

I should mention that all of our kids clothes are by www.ecboutique.net . The kids LOVE HER! Everything she makes for them becomes their favorite! She is definitely cool for several reasons, but not only that, my kids now have clothes they literatelly love to wear. I have never seen them have the same passion for their outfits like they do now. Huge difference too on rather they want them to get dirty or not.

The first picture is Wesley, Kaya, and MY DADDY!!!

The kids and Papa

There should be absolutely nothing of interest off the coast period.

okay so........

What the hell.

IT IS MAY PEOPLE MAY.


okay so i was going to post about Spiderman as my brother was one of the cleveland artist that painted in the movie and they used one of his paintings along with other cleveland artist in the windows. The whole scene that they filmed in cleveland is the armored car section, so when you watch that keep in my brother painted things like helped make the equipment at the bottom of the cars look like the street and some other things like that.

So the other neat part is that WB gave him and everyone else that worked on the set from cleveland two tickets for friday, so he went! He isnt a huge tobey fan, but you know when it is your 30 seconds of fame you have to go!

SO go over to www.damonreaves.com and check it out. He is working on his site again, but i love the yesterday thing he has on there.

Umm yeah, so i am not modest when it comes to my brother. he is darn good. Thing i like most about his art. He makes your think. But the most interesting part is everyone sees a different thing.

FABULOUS!



p.s. i will get that disney story typed up and the pictures up but man i just keep runing out of time but BOY did we have a blast!

Happy BDAY TO ME! 31 and still have to pull out id! WHOO HOO! (its the hair)

The Happy Family
Okay so i was going to spend the day writting about the disney trip and get the pictures up!

INSTEAD I HAVE to post this video that i made.


Okay some background.

Saturday morning, I am sitting on the couch answering emails when i hear WHAMP CLICK CLICK CLICK WHAMP CLICK. I am thinking WTF is that. Look up and see this female cardinal flyinginto the door.

Now we know that she has a nest right by end of the lot and her and her husband (the male cardinal) have been hanging out in the nest. She has several eggs in the nest. SO we are pretty sure that she wants some hair out of the bins and she also wants to get some beads off the Horse.

SO yesterday i take a little bit of old hair out for her and she took that (along with a woodpecker stealing the rest who also lives in the back of a yard ) But i was refusing to get beads off the horse. Well now i am worried about her killing her fool self, so maybe i just will give her a string or so.

SO i took this video THIS MORNING. and she has been doing this since SATURDAY morning. Almost a week.

I think i said sunday on a video but i mean saturday.

ENJOY

Video One

So let's see. Again Wesley is doing EXCELLENTLY in school. I really just do not have much to write about him and school because I seem to say the same things over and over. He is very serious about school. He doesnt want to miss a day. probably would go crawling on his knees to school if i let him just to get there he wants to go so bad. I thought i was serious at his age, blah, nothing compared to this little boy. Oh and the things kaya is picking up because of him. Amazing.

The only big problem we are having is that he would rather have an asthma attack and sit and suffer through it instead of just going down to the office for 5 minutes and getting his meds. Why? Because I will miss something Mommy!

Oh well, we will work on that.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Have some pictures of up some of our wigs now on the fotki gallery. http://public.fotki.com/remyhairtoday     There are some weave examples and wig examples in the top two folders.  Working on getting a how to put on your lacefront wig set of pictures of video together. Just havent had the time to do it.   

I think my mom is going to do a hair show in Akron in March for me. Of course it depends on the date because we are doing a family trip to Disney *drools* in March.  

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The kids are bummed about not going up to Cleveland this weekend.   UGH we should have gone.   I have driven in worse weather. Should have stuck to my guns and just gone, but NOOOO, i listened to others and stayed and the kids are annoyed about it and i am not too amused myself. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Got the impala detailed.  They did an AWESOME job.   If you are in the charleston area and need to get your car detailed call Pleasant Details. They are located over in Mt Pleasant but they come to your house or wrk or whereever.  We had them come to our house.  They were able to work around the carseats and everything so i didnt have to take those monsters out. (HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE having to do that which is why we have a seat for every single car for both kids so i dont have to move one to the other)   I dont mind resetting then when they need to be, but it is a pain in the butt to take them completely out and get them back in. 

Probably going to call them and have them shampoo the carpets on the van and scotch guard it. My two kids are great, they really dont want to see the van get dirty or anything.  Kaya has really gotten into vacuuming the van out every week and switching her toys in and out of the car.  But a couple of the kids we car pool for just at not my two.   Whoo nothing like a child that isnt yours that leaves sunflower seeds shells all over the place (something my kids avoid like the plague)  or power from candy (again a candy they can not eat)  that must have gotten wet and now i have a nice BLUE stain on the carpet.   I hate to ban food and drink in the car because my two normally are very good about wanting to keep their space very clean. But i just might have to because some of those kids are just not as considerate about other's property. 

Okay so we do have a steam cleaner we can use but again it is a pain in the but to drag it out to the garage to use it, easier to use it in the house. *ponders* though i guess i could bring the matts instead.  That is an idea.  Especially since i am the QUEEN of scotch guard.

That being said, have a mentioned how much we LOVE that van.  Okay so it is a little ODD that you find just as many people that come up and look at it as the impala.  The wheels are a pain in the butt to keep clean though because they are chrome and it is a pain to get clean in a car wash because of the shape and the extended length. But we have a ton of room in there. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Have  HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE shipment coming in today.  MAN AM I NERVOUS! this will be the biggest one yet!   SO i am putting a nice chunk in a box and shipping it to my mother, so that she will have some in stock for Anita and all the Ohio people. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


OH YEAH!  SO my Birdism has hit again.  Apparenlty it is definitely me! Not just my brother!  Instead of the bird flying into our car and dying in the trunk like last time, this time i am in the kitchen and here WHACK!   I am about to get all nasty thinking some juvie had tossed something at the window.  (we live in great community, but we seen to have some issues with a couple of kids that think it is funny to mess with others stuff)   So i look out the window and notice this weird cross looking wet spot.  Now i am very smart, so i know that i have this habit of birds dying around me. Something in my gut said EWWWW this is gross. SO i opened the front door but wasn't about to open the screen and plastered my face again the glass to look ALLLLL the way to the left and sure enough.  There on the porch. A nasty little dead bird.

I HATE birds.  BLEUCH!  That one reason i hate going downtown, darn pigeons and seagulls.   In cleveland they have seagulls everywhere in the summer too. I LOVE winter in cleveland. Seagulls are not so bad. 

Birds.  ICK!    ICK ICK ICK.

So it is February. Black history month and i have not made my normal black history month post. Why? I dont know. Mostly because i am just annoyed. Why is it that my son at 6 can name 6-10 items invented or improved things by someone black, but there are adults that can not name one with certainty.

Items used everyday. Items we mostly take for granted. It is disheartening sometimes.

I was going to make a fun little poll of some items, but changed my mind.

So i think i will just leave it at that.

Where are all the good movies and the documentaries that they usually play during this month? Some of them are movies you cant just run to blockbuster to rent but they usually come on tv during February and this year, nuffin. Just plum annoying. Watch there will be a ton of stuff for women history month in march.
