May 16, 2009

First, Happy Birthday MOM!!!the big 52. Well in her honor I ran the 5K Marathon. Okay better said I ran 1/2 of the way and walked the other 1/2 thanks to the support of Ashley and Laci. It was not as bad as I thought it would be it was actually fun and even funnier seeing Ashley dancing to a few tunes on the way;> Well I made it in time to take Koby for his Soccer Tryout with the HC Storm and I never made it for my soccer game. I was so excited with everything that I forgot to buy my RED shirt for the game. NO shirt NO game for me. Well thought I would let you see the pieces of papers that Koby and I had to wear today.

The big 862 is mine and 36 is Koby incase you cannot read it. He did really well we will not know until after Tuesday since they have another tryout.

Soccer is finally over....or is it....

Well the spring season of soccer for the kids is over FINALLY.
It took me a while to come back and finish my note but YES the kids are done but mom (that would be me) has decided to join the Woman's City league. Now lets get one thing straight I have not played for a long time and I am just trying to get back into shape. Its all for my health. So the first official game is May 16, 2009 and well I might, might not make it since I am also participating in the Running with Angels Marathon 5K at Thanksgiving Point and Koby has a soccer tryout. Busy day but we will manage.

My Crazy Aunt

I have a crazy aunt. Actually i think we all do right?! Anyways she sends me emails on some hilarious things I wanted to share them with you. Hope you enjoy them:>

These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts, and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place.

ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?
WITNESS: He said, 'Where am I, Cathy?'
ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?
WITNESS: My name is Susan!

ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?
WITNESS: Gucci sweats and Reeboks.
____________________________ ________________

ATTORNEY: Are you sexually active?
WITNESS: No, I just lie there.

ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect your memory?
WITNESS: I forget.
ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?

ATTORNEY: Do you know if your daughter has ever been involved in voodoo?
WITNESS: We both do.
WITNESS: Yes, voodoo.

ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?
_________________________ ___________

ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the twenty-year-old, how old is he?
WITNESS: He's twenty, much like your IQ.

ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?
WITNESS: Are you shitting me?

ATTORNEY: So the date of conception (of the baby) was August 8th?
ATTORNEY: And what were you doing at that time?
WITNESS: getting laid

ATTORNEY: She had three children, right?
ATTORNEY: How many were boys?
ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?
W ITNESS : Your Honor, I think I need a different attorney. Can I get a new attorney?

ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?
WITNESS: By death.
ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?
WITNESS: Take a guess.


ATTORNEY: Can you describe the individual?
WITNESS: He was about medium height and had a beard.
ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?
WITNESS: Unless the Circus was in town I'm going with male.

ATTORNEY: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?
WITNESS: No, this is how I dress when I go to work.

ATTORNEY: Doctor, how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?
WITNESS: All of them. The live ones put up too much of a fight.

ATTORNEY: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?

ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
WITNESS: The autopsy started around 8:30 p.m.
ATTORNEY: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
WITNESS: If not, he was by the time I finished.

ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?
WITNESS: Are you qualified to ask that question?

And the best for last:

ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.

My Daughter the ARTIST

I don't think I have shared that Natasha loves to draw. This year like every year their school has a school T-shirt contest. Everyone participates they draw what they think represents the school and theme. This year Natasha WON!! and she has been keeping up on the whole drawing. She really has a talent for this and I have actually been checking on her making sure she draws and does not trace because some things look too good to be true BUT seriously she does not trace and she really ENJOYS it.
Here is the actual drawing for the School T-shirt she drew the Eagle with the fireworks on top and she also added the vest that has the US Flag on it the school just added the scroll down below that says; Be Respectful * Be Obedient * Be United and down the middle of the Eagle they also added "I soar with the EAGLES at Freedom Academy!"
Just the other day we actually were outside talking with some friends the kids were playing and drawing on the sidewalk with chalk that I had bought them, Natasha again was in her drawing mood and this is what she drew on the floor
I will add the picture of the real toy later but its awesome RIGHT?!
