Is my life really that boring?

I've been told by someone (someone who will remain nameless....although their name does start with a P...ends with an O and only has four letters) that my life is boring. Maybe it's because my last blog post talked about how excited I was about a blow dryer...but hey...that's about all the excitement that was happening in my life at that point....so, I was very slow to blog.

Last weekend my sister PocO (hmmm...only 4 letters, starts with a P and ends with an O...hey...I'm just sayin!!) and my mother came to visit me and Walt. We had a very low key weekend, and unfortunately I did not take many pictures. Friday night we stayed in and grilled out and played several rounds of scattergories...my mother was AWFUL and she CHEATED!! Poco would say that she had something and mom would say she had it too!! We had several laughs with the answers that she wrote down... one of the being kitchen utensils that started with an "n"....my mother....she wrote this "nife" and was dead serious about it being right, and NO she hadn't had too much to drink! ha!
On Saturday night we went to dinner at Garlic Rose with my mom and sister and then 2 of our couple friends. Dinner was "Dirty"...that was the word for the night. Translation=phenomenal! After dinner we went and tried out the new casino that opened...and that's why I don't have pictures. Mom and I didn't win...but Poco...she played blackjack for about 4 hours on just TWENTY dollars!! And let me tell you she was playing with some high rollers!! It was a lot of fun, and of course once Sunday rolled around, I was so sad to see them leave.
****I do need your help though for all you blog readers! I love Gracie oh so much, but Gracie has become a very territorial dog! Gracie will growl and attack any small dog that goes near me or Walt at our house. She will do the same thing if you go after her toys. I've been trying to tell Walt about this for a year, but he JUST NOW believed me when Gracie bit poor Phoebe (my mom's dog) I've suggested getting Gracie a brother, but I didn't know if there was anything else I could do?!? Any suggestions? Walt and I are just afraid that when we do actually have kids, that Gracie might be a little territorial then also. Any help would be appreciated!
Me with Riley Roo (he loves kissing his Auntie M and my little brat Gracie)
Me and Momma at dinner
Momma being silly!! And I know...I didn't even get one picture of Poco!

Yesterday was a very sad day in the Bass house hold. Yesterday was the day that Walt FINALLY put the Baylor Sailor Bear to rest. Walt purchased his beloved Baylor shirt his freshman year of college and almost all of my college memories include Walt in that very shirt. This shirt of Walt's has traveled the globe. When we backpacked it was worn almost every day, anytime Walt leaves to go on an audit this Baylor shirt is the very first thing he packs.... this shirt has some pretty great memories behind it. I have tried to get Walt to throw the shirt away FOREVER. I'm talking holes all in it, was totally embarrassed to even walk around our neighborhood with him because the shirt looked so raggedy. Walt has always told me that he would NEVER get rid of that shirt... 9 years and still going strong, right? Well, yesterday Walt put the shirt on to go for a walk, looked in the mirror and said the greatest 5 words I have ever heard, "I'm throwing this shirt away." WHAT? I said, you can't be serious? He then took the shirt off and it ripped...it was time. I am telling the truth when I tell you that I will NOT miss that shirt.
Today my fourth graders took a field trip to the Quick Trip headquarters. Now if you don't know what a QT is, it is a convenience store, and if you ask Walt what the greatest thing about Oklahoma is, he will tell you without hesitation that it is QUICK TRIP. The convenience stores are the nicest stores I have ever been into, and they have the greatest fountain drinks and food. Well today we were able to tour the headquarters. After touring the headquarters, I'm considering leaving my current profession. They get to wear casual clothes EVERYDAY, unless they are meeting with someone, because they get more accomplished when they are dressed casual. They had a doctor ON SITE and ANY Quick Trip employee and see the doctor for FREE. I could go on forever, but this place is amazing...it's "DIRTY"I really considered leaving my current job until of course I looked at one of my kids and he gave me the sweetest smile...this brought me back to reality and I realized I was doing exactly what I was supposed to be doing.
Exactly one week from today I have another "DIRTY" thing that is happening to me. I'm going to see this man:
I don't think you know just how excited I am!! I think Jason Mraz is HOT! He's like the Popsicle on a hot day, the marshmallows in the hot chocolate, the bananas on the sundae...you get my point. I LOVE him! Besides my husband...Jason is in my top three hottest men. The main reason why I think he is so hot is because he sounds EXACTLY the same on his CD as he does LIVE...and this fellow blog reader, is a HUGE turn on for me. I am a big time music fan and if you sound LIVE like what you do on your CD that you have won me over. Not to mention, he has some pretty cute facials while he sings. I can't wait!! In the past 7 years Walt and I have been to ONE concert for me...ONE...and now we are going to see Jason and I am Oh so excited!!

One last thing to prove to some of you that my life really isn't all that boring...in fact it is pretty "Dirty." In June Walt is leading an audit in a pretty "Dirty" place and I get to go and spend 21 days there. So it will be pretty much like I live in this city for a month. Which city is it you ask? Oh only this one:
That's right baby....LONDON!!
Now, you don't really think I live a boring life do you?

I don't think your life is boring at all! **Now about Miss Gracie, I have the same problem with Jessie Jane and my mother's dog Lucy. They are both very jealous and we have found that there really isn't much that can be done other than let them know when their behavior is NOT acceptable. I think it is really just a yorkie thing. And once you have a little one I think Gracie will be protective of them too. **I absolutely love QT!! I toured the HQ in college and was ready to start work with them immediately, unfortunately you have to work in the stores first! But I do know the manager of Internal Audit there so I don't know maybe someday?!**WOW! I didn't know you were staying the whole audit, that is awesome. Have you been to London before? It is fantastic! So many great places to eat, visit, and shop. And you are so close to sooo many other cool places too. How fun! Now aren't you glad that you have summers off and can go on vacation for as long as you like? :) Okay well my comment is long enough to be its own blog!

Hi! I saw you on the prayer list (from Kellys Korner) & just wanted to stop by & say I'm praying for you :) We are struggling also & are seeing a fertility specialist now. I have been off BC for two & half years & have been diagnosed with PCOS. I take 1000 mg of Metformin daily & the doctor said I can't take the Clomid anymore b/c I've taken it to many times. I'm hoping this new doctor will do wonders for us. I have faith that maybe this will be our year & hopefully yours too! God Bless!
