I hope I am not Dumb now!

Well, I am officially free of any wisdom attributed to my teeth. My last two wisdom teeth were pulled this morning. Yes, I said pulled. Apparently they were super easy for the doc and didn't even require cutting or stitches. They did knock me out though so I am sure Jeremy got some laughs. The only reason I had chipmunk cheeks was from the gauze. I spent the day relaxed on the back deck in the b-u-tiful weather and working on my tan. I don't even have to go back for a check up appointment. Very cool! I love when things go better than they are supposed to. Tomorrow is supposed to be gorgeous out too so I will hopefully be out here again. Oh and on another note, those of you who know about our home repair drama, they finally officially finished the shutters on the house. I will try to do a before and after blog sometime soon. They came today and fixed the wrong color, crooked, wrong size, incorrectly drilled shutter. yes, this is the 4th or 5th time they have had to come out b/c they screwed up. Yikes! Oh well, I signed the COC so I guess they are done!

I Declare War!!!!!

Okay some of you may be familiar with the big boy toys called air soft guns. Not sure why soft is in the name. They shoot hard little balls of plastic. Jeremy has one....its broken. We do however have a large container of 4500 of the little pellets from Satan. Not only have I been hit by one of these things and not happy with that but tonight I officially declared war on them.

I went to my hall closet to put away a jacket and the container of pellets fell in the floor cracking the lid allowing the little guys to run allllllll over! This picture was after I picked up half of them. They go everywhere. In addition, they are probably useless now. See since I have two dogs and wood floors all the fur that can't be picked up two seconds after it falls off the pups slowly rolls in little tumbleweeds under closet doors. So once I got them back into the container at a rate which seemed to be two by two, there was quite a lot of fur in the container too! Yikes. They even invaded my shoes.....but alas! they are all back in their little container. Battle #1 Victory Erin
So today is actually Friday for me since tomorrow I am taking the day off! Hooray! Oh wait, its to have my wisdom teeth removed. Oh well, at least I have an excuse to eat ice cream and be lazy all day.....and its going to be in the 80's and sunny all weekend!

On another note, does anyone else have super weird dreams? I do....all the time...since I was a kid. I think its just another sign of my creative brain. Jeremy thinks its weird. :) I don't usually remember most of them but one time in high school I had a very vivid one. Here goes:

It all starts when I was washing dishes in my house. I could see into the backyard through the window above the sink and much to my surprise there stood a man with a gun pointed at me. I freaked...ran upstairs into my bedroom and sat in the middle of the floor. Unfortunately the whole back wall of my bedroom was glass (in the dream, real life would just be weird) and I could still see the guy, which means he could see me. I ran downstairs again and told my mom about the creep to which she replyed, "Oh, that's nice honey!" What? No, its not nice. What the..... So I proceed to call 911 and the operator informs me they will have someone there in a couple of days. Great they will be there in time to pick up my body before the wild animals come! Maybe overreacting a bit. At that moment I hear the front door open.....oh no! he's coming inside. I peek around the corner and he says, "Hey, do you guys have any pretzels?" Of course, this makes no sense but I throw him a bag of pretzels to which he says, "thanks!" and promptly leaves.

Really, that is the kind of dreams I have. Totally and completely weird. Oh and by the way, I had pretzels in my lunch for about a month before that dream. I think I was tired of them. :)

Frieda and Lots of Brown Eggs

So its been a while since I have written anything but I have more fun reading everyone else's blogs. I have been trying to relive my childhood for a couple of months by finding a local farm that I could get brown eggs. I know, Kroger sells them. I don't want Kroger eggs, I want farm eggs! So, off to Findlay Market I went this weekend with my nephew Caleb in tow. We found a great dozen of brown eggs, paid for them and a beautiful orchid and set for home. Well, much to my surprise my mom also sent back an assortment of eggs with my sister. I now have 2 dozen eggs including guinea and bantam eggs. Looks like we are eating brinner a couple of times this week!

Also, I am dying to clean out our fish pond. I did it way too early last year and shocked all the fish which then killed them. Jeremy is making me wait. Till memorial day! I can't do it. I have to get my wisdom teeth taken out this week though so I guess I can't do it this week. Anywho....we have a frog. Not sure where she came from but we started seeing her last year. Yes, I said she. I looked it up. SHE is a Northern Green Frog and the circles next to her eyes are the same size as her eyes which makes her a she (the boys are bigger) hehe, snicker. So my friend Andy decided she needs a name....thus dubbed Frieda. Frieda the frog. Its awfully close to being fried the frog. Yikes! Maybe I should consider a name change!
