why do we have children?

So tell me why again we have children? Yesterday Manny and I went to pick Amber up from her girlfriends house. A cop pulls up right behind me. Great. He asks me to turn the car off. There is also an officer on the other side of the car. I am asked the usual questions, and then I am told that I need to put the plate on the front of the car. Great I can see another ticket coming. Amber comes walking out and walks right past the officer and throws her stuff in the car. The officer asks her who I was. Amber said " oh she is my aunt and she is kidnapping me". While the officer on my side of the car asked me who Amber was. I said that she was my daughter. The officer asked me if my licence is current and if I have any outstanding tickets. I told a white lay. o.k. it was a big fat lie, and I said no. Amber is on the other side of the car asking the officer if I am going to get another ticket! The officer finally lets me go.

So just to get Amber back, her actual licence came in the mail yesterday, but I have not told her yet. Pay back is a bitch.

Today I am going to go to the beach. The beach is free and it is better then any therapy! I so cant wait to stick my feet in the sand and to let the sun bake my body.

When I get home from the beach I will have to help Amber get ready for her yard sale. People around here start very early!

I had a request for shepherds pie. So I think I am going to make that before I head out to the beach. I still to this day have never tried my own shepherds pie, but everyone else loves it.

Rusty said that he had to go to San Diego today. That bums me out. Rusty told me to call him when I got to the beach. He said that if he was back from San Diego that we could go have lunch. I am telling you I think Rusty keeps worse hours then he did while he was on active duty.

As for yesterday's entry about how clean is your house. I just cannot believe that people let their houses get that far out of hand. I am always cleaning something. I am also a Lysol freak. I spray and wipe everything down, then I go back and do it again.

I need to get busy and get moving. My day is calling me.

I've come by way of CorsetUpdates. First thing I noticed was your sidebar, not unlike my own. I tend to be outspoken on animal cruelty, domestic violence the usually lot for women with a cause (winks). Secondly I read this entry and couldn't help think how much your daughter reminded me of my own. Who's name also happens to be Amber, although I do call her Skye by her middle name. I'm glad I  made my way over here. I'll definitely be back. Who could resist when someone describes you as an old hippie. (Hugs) Indigo

Hmm another encounter with law enforcement.  Seems like they know when you are really wanting to avoid them  Well, I got to go watch my Tv program so you think you can dance, but I enjoyed catching up with what you are doing even if I didn't say much.   Gerry

I hate cops... around here they are bored and have nothing better to do than stop everyone for the littlest thing. That's why I tell my kids make sure you stop at those stop signs because somebody is always watching.
Kids dontcha love em. That sounds like my daughter. One time we were coming home from the movie theater and we came up on a road block. Well the cop was fifty questions, then my daughter takes over asking the cop fifty questions and wasn't he so and so's dad and why was his kid sitting over there in the car watching everything is he allowed to be with you at work? After that he let me go really fast.
Take care, Chrissie

We have them so they will give us grandchildren one day and then we can sit back and laugh at them as they go through all the stuff we were put through by them!
