Exxon's Reason to Exist

The oil companies are watching me today and smiling as they hear the "ching, ching, ching" of my money dropping into their pockets.


We live in the uttermost southwestern part of Rogers. I work in the northernmost part of Bentonville, and the girls dance in the coordinates exactly opposite of our house on the northeastern side of Rogers.

Stan picked Mason and Madison up from school today because Madison had student council after school, and he was available to pick her up. Mason was his additional prize for the afternoon.

Makenzie had dance this afternoon at 4:30-5:30. We will leave here in 10 minutes and get Makenzie to the house with Daddy. I will then pick Madison up from the house, and bring her back to the opposite side of Rogers for dance from 6:30- 8:30. (Yes, back to the same place I am sitting right now.....) I will then go back to school for a Parent Involvement Meeting (which is in Bentonville) and then at 8:30 I will come BACK to dance to get Madison and get home around 9:00.

I have reset my trip odometer to see exactly how many miles I will log today. If I can get any guesses in my responses... I'll send an October surprise to the closest guess.

You are welcome Exxon.......

Pay It Forward, And WIN A PRIZE!!!

Good evening! I am sitting at Mercy Hospital with a friend's daughter, and what better way to spend my time than blogging. It's been a busy month, so I hope to catch up my blogs soon. I've dealt with some very interesting situations at school recently, and I've decided that the world needs some kindness. I was reading Dallas's blog, which is very interesting and fun to read, and she had a really neat post. I'm copying and pasting so here you go.......Thanks for the great idea Dallas!!!!!

I have yet to see my fabulous gift from Dallas, although, I know it will be completely fabulous because it is coming from her. I will find out soon and dream until then...What am I talking about, you might ask? Well, I am paying it forward with a premeditated act of kindness. Would you like to be the owner of a fun gift and give in return? Well, read some more...THE RULES: The main focus is doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and pay it forward.I will send a small, fun gift to the first 3 bloggers who post a comment on this entry. In turn, those three will post this information and pick 3 people they want to send something to and then the game will continue!!If you are interested in participating, be one of the first 3 bloggers to leave a comment!! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found, anything you want!! Just a gift that will make the person's day!!You have to promise that you will then post about this on your blog, link back to me, and then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog. Doesn't this sound like fun!!??All of you lurkers out there who never comment, now is your chance to prove to me that you frequent my blog.Have fun!

Right on Time~

** Updated with new pics**

This post is for all of you who doubted me~ This past Thursday was my baby boy's 5th birthday. We have already celebrated, Chuck E. Cheese style, and it isn't 5 months later. Here are some highlights of the party.....

The birthday boy and the rat... I mean Chuck E.

Mason and Jackson Finger~ They were born 2 1/2 weeks apart

Matthew McConnell, Mason, and Andrew Perry
Mason NEVER refers to these guys by just their first names.

***Here is Mason during his party with 2 girls that I've never seen before. Moms, if you see a birthday party happening that is obviously a paid for and organized party... please keep your uninvited kiddos away during the picture time.

Mason's latest goofiness is posing this way for pictures.

Happy Birthday Mason~
The whole party gang
