For me? I think not! For Marz? I hope not! ;). Ha ha ha ha! Just kidding Grandma! On the serious side, this photo was taken at Hari Kartini on Wednesday. I can't post the video of our performance so this will have to do. :). Cheers!

Well we impressed her so much and were so good from the start that we challenged ourselves to perform at Hari Kartini (Kartini Day), which is tomorrow!!
Hari Kartini is a day in which the women of Indonesia celebrate Kartini and all she fought for. For example Kartini fought to educate the girls/women of Indonesia.
Introducing......the "Thunder Sisters". The below picture is of the drummers and the xylophone players.
So tomorrow we will perform. We will do two songs. The first song has everyone drumming and the second one has a bit of everything. If I can, I will try and be brave and post a video of our performance. :)
Off to bed now so I can get some rest for my very precious voice!

This next picture is an upside down rainbow... The red dots are just from the glare... No spaceship here! :)
Now if you go back and look at the first photo, you see a second circle... Well part of a second circle. There were actually two full circles in the sky. But again, my camera couldn't get both in the picture.

To be continued....
Continuing on... (I can only write so much when I use my phone to add a picture to the blog and I was using my phone because we have not had Internet for the last three days!)
So the power is out! Yes out in the whole house! I call Chris. Thankfully he had just gotten up from the underground!! He calls a friend, who calls a "friend" and two guys show up at the house.
They workers come in and start messing with the breaker box. Nothing... They go outside and come back in. Mess with the breakers again. Nothing... "Hey missis, do you have a screwdriver?" I give them a screwdriver. (I really thought they wanted one to open the breaker box.) Nope! They take the screw out.... Mess with the breakers... and shezam..... We have power!!
So that's it. They "fixed" it. Leave the house and Amen. Another job "well done"!
Chris calls and asks if it was fixed.... He is not impressed... There is a "HOT" wire in our wall... I am sure there are many more, but this one we know about!
So now I am waiting for the "friends" to come back and really fix the problem. I guess no more home improvements for awhile...

Yesterday was our normal card day, so a friend offered up her yard for the kids to enjoy some slip and slide fun while we played cards. Here are all the kids lined up ready to go!
Here are the three friends who try to pollute me!
After the Titanic, a friend of ours, who was also in Singapore, polluted Mersades and my mind by taking us to Louie! Well, she really didn't pollute our mind, we all wanted to go and check the store out! :) So we made the most of it!
We started off by going in to the most expensive part of the store and asking what was the most expensive! What a bunch of hicks, you say?! Well yes! But we really didn't care! We were just having a great time with Marz! She must not really be a teenager because she was not embarrassed one bit!! And we tried.... Oh, did we try! :D
So after we were done ooh-ing and ahhh-ing over everything, the store lady pointed us in the direction where the "common" folk went and bought their "Louie".
Here is the corridor on the way to the other part and my model, Marz, having a photo with some vintage Louie.
Next, mom had to try on a pair. They were not quite as bad as Mersades were.... but they definitely were not for me!! I am pretty sure Chris would have CROAKED if i spent $500 on a pair of sunglasses!!! :D
After all of the fun, we left to go torture other high end shop owners. Gucci, Channel, Mui Mui, .... to name a few...
It was a great fun night with Marz! Who knows, maybe one day she will grace the cover of a magazine wearing those "marvelous" glasses!! Ha Ha Ha Ha...
Having some LV fun,

Christ is Risen!!
Saturday, April 7, 2012
It has been a tradition since I was very little, to make nest out of the clothes you wore the day before Easter, for the Easter bunny to leave you treats. So tonight, when Chris and I got home from a farewell party, this is what we saw.... Our boys are so clever!!! :). Or just plain goofy! :D

Believe me, it's not as bad as it looks! Two months ago, on the school trip, M's knee gave out on her. Thursday, her knee did it again. Only this time it hurt and became swollen. So call the emergency room... the hospital is only 75 yards away... bring two "ambulances"... straight board her... sorry it's such a bad picture... drive her to the hospital... and after an x-ray and a two second Dr visit... She had a stretched patella tendon! I guess you are going to have to do a bit of exercise now M! :D

Last weekend the PTA put on a great dance for the whole school! It was a great time. I even think Gavin got out and cut a rug on the dance floor! :). Mersades finally did a "teenage" thing and had a friend over the play beauty shop! Gabby was in her element hanging out with all her friends. And Teddy gave everyone a show with his "robotics" dance moves! It was a much needed fun night out for the school community. The end of quarter three has come. The kids are now on a two week break. :) Cheers to all!
