I'm the worst at procrastination. And today it has finally reared it's ugly head at me. You see we leave for Missouri early (and I do mean early) in the morning for my niece's wedding. And early is never a good thing with me. So today that leaves me with finding out if the vet can board our dog at the last minute( it can). Taking the dog to the vet this afternoon. Buying new clothes for the boys for the wedding. Getting the boys haircuts. Trying to wash a load of clothes we will need for the trip and then packing. I also need to squeeze the time in there to buy the girls some new dressy shoes that fit. It doesn't help that the kids are in the worst and most whiny moods and really don't want to cooperate with anything that needs to be done.

Yes, procrastination is definitely laughing at me today. But no worries, the things that must be done will get done and those that don't have to..well they just won't get done. I really can't stress to much over it since it's to late for that anyway. I'm off to spend a very hectic weekend at the in-laws and intend to enjoy it as much as possible.

Are you kidding me?

Okay, I don't normally go off into these murky waters but really today I just can't resist.

Paris Hilton was released from jail last night and apparently she is a changed woman. She decided to walk out of jail in the same way that every other person who comes out does. Naturally she was bombarded by the paparazzi. It's a good thing she changed into some new designer clothes first. Poor thing had to sit there and endure all those photographers for at least five minutes before her SUV could drive off out of the mess. Guess there is something to be said about being just like the rest of us. All I can hope for is that yes Paris did learn something in her time there and that now she will be a better role model for all these girls that actually look up to her.

All I know is that I am tired of hearing all about her every night on the news.
So for those of you who love Paris, I'm happy that she is now out of jail. I don't know her and really can't walk a mile in her heels but I do wish the best for her in the future. I just hope I don't have to hear about every little detail of it.

Random Things

1. My parents who were in town for K.'s birthday left this morning. This means that my children are exceptionally whinny and testing all the limits.

2. My house and laundry are once again out of control and I really should be focusing on them today. But I'm not. Instead I'm doing a million of other little things.

3. We are supposed to leave town at the end of the week for my niece's wedding. I really can't say that I'm all that excited about the trip. It's a nine hour drive and we will only really be there for a day and a half. Hopefully we will get a hotel this time instead of trying to camp out in the house. They have enough going on without adding our noisy bunch.

4. Swim lessons are going great for the kids. Hoss is able to go into our community pool now without floaties since he can touch and loves diving for toys. K. is doing super also. It's been fun to watch how much they are improving. Z. is loving his advanced class and so it's been a win win for everyone.

5. We only have a couple of more baseball games left for Z. to play. It's always fun when he makes the All Stars but it really drags the season out a long time. With the heat we have had, I'm ready to be done.

6. I'm hoping to get everything I need done before tomorrow so that I will have a few days to relax before being stuck in a car for along time. Guess that means I better get started on it.
