This Thanksgiving holiday, be thankful you aren't in Marney's family.

-OR-

Things longer than a Kardashian marriage.

Has that joke been overplayed?

Since I last blogged, Blogger changed their interface and I feel like a stranger in a strange land....

Cason played his last soccer game on Saturday. He loved every second of it. The moral to the story being don't tell everyone that you know that your kid will never play soccer because then they will most definitely play soccer. (I'm looking at you, Colin White) He wasn't all that great at it though so I'm not worried about him turning in to the next David Beckham.

We've got an awesome plumbing situation going on right now. The plumbing in one of our bathrooms has to be replaced. Which, incidentally, involves ripping out all the flooring and concrete under the floor. So right now there is a giant hole in my bathroom. And I have bunco at my house on Saturday.

Has this happened to anyone else? We bought this (old) house with the plans to redo most of it. It seems as if the chain of events went something like this:

1. Buy house
2. Make extensive plans for remodeling
3. Do nothing

We had make plans to redo that bathroom before but something else always came up (see: babies, cars, new fence). And now I'm glad because if we (Colin) had laid a new floor and THEN had to rip it up? Well, someone would have lost a limb on account of my anger.

So we've got this plumber in there as we speak replacing a drain. He came out last week and said he would have it knocked out in no time. Heh. Funny. So here we are four days later and I'm still looking at his plumber's crack.

And, quite frankly, it's not very enjoyable.

Princess Tiana and Batman are ready to take off.

I must confess that Halloween is not my favorite holiday. I don't dress up. I don't decorate. I'll admit it -- I'm a Halloween party pooper. Apparently, Halloween is the new Christmas because the amount of parties/activities my kids were invited to was insane. They each had one at school, plus OC trick or treating, church carnival, four (FOUR!) Halloween parties, and then trick or treating. I see people on facebook going to Storybook Forrest or Haunt the Zoo and I'm like, "WHY?" I can't imagine taking my kids to one more Halloween activity. I did Kendall's hair in an up do this year complete with glitter hair spray and the hair pins I wore in my wedding. It seems to be the last year she wants to be something "princess"-y. She's already said that next year she wants to be a witch and wear lots of spiders on her hand. Cason wants to be a zombie. I guess I should go purchase fake blood now while it's on sale. There goes my dream of dressing them up as the Spartan cheerleaders.

Overall, the kids had a great time and more importantly got loads of candy. The two scariest things about Hallween were 1) the price of candy and 2) the check engine light coming on in my car. Naturally.

Next up:
Bunco (which I'm hosting)
Softball Banquet
Thanksgiving (which I'm helping host)
Kendall's birthday
Christmas in Texas

And in addition to that, we've ripped apart our main bathroom in the house. If you don't hear from me soon, I've checked into a mental institution.
