I found out via text message while I was at work today. I said to my co-worker (who is 23):
Awww, Paul Newman died. How sad.
To which she replied:
I loved him in Grumpy Old Men.
Ahhh, no that would be Jack Lemmon...he's dead too though.

I was there for the usual diapers, formula, and a basket full of crap that I don't need when this make up caught my eye. There was so much to choose from. I wound up purchasing another lip gloss. I got the Pixi Vitamin Lip Silk in Flora. I am always in search of the perfect lip gloss. I need a lip gloss that when the wind blows my hair doesn't stick to my lips, that last more than 30 minutes, that doesn't look like my lips are bleeding pink goo, that doesn't leave that disgusting white gunk behind that is only noticeable when I smile, and most of all that looks natural! I'll give this a try.
In my make-up drawer:
Lip sticks, glosses and balms...OH MY!

~A new front door: $700
~Food to replace two freezers and the refrigerator: $850
~Repairs to my truck that broke down while evacuating: $7,500
*It would have broken down regardless, but it's nice to place blame on something else.
~The look on my face right now...PRICELESS!
Yeah, these priceless things are way overdone...Sorry!
What baby doesn't love a stuffed animal? This little pig is so cute and he is made with 100% organic cotton, stuffed with wool, and the dyes are non-toxic. I won't have to worry about her chewing on it. How cute is he?
From the same people that make the soft stacker, is this soft block set. I loved playing with blocks as a kid and these are great for babies and they are pretty!
Organic fruit basket, with plush fruit, is great for teething. Made with 100% organic Egyptian cotton. How cute! They also have a little veggie crate.

Mayor of NOLA, Ray Nagin, has offered up hotels in the city. Just ask for the "Ray Nagin special". He said that this will be the cheapest that you will be able to visit NOLA. What a guy! I say that with the utmost sarcasm!
Be safe Texas!! I pray that it isn't as bad they forecast.

It seems these damn hurricanes are following me. Hanna is coming this way (NC). Ike is not far behind, and could possibly make it's way into the Gulf (but let's not think that).
I think I must have pissed Karma off!

Sarah Palin is truly an inspiration, to mothers and especially to working mothers like myself. It proves that you can have it all. What a beautiful family. They are all gorgeous! If you watched last night you would have seen a very funny and loving moment with Sarah's daughter Piper and her baby boy Trig. Piper was stroking Trig's little head, comforting him and then she licked her hand and rubbed his head, flattening his hair. It was hilarious!
I really enjoyed everyone's speeches. Very touching and even funny! John McCain was hot back in the day!
I am excited about this ticket after watching the RNC. McCain-Palin '08...Drill baby, drill!
Oh, and Us Weekly...cancel my subscription!

...and these super cute Mary Jane's from Urban Runway Baby.
I also bought her her first pair of Chuck Taylor's. Couldn't resist! The boys wanted Star Wars toys, so we went to Target and bought some toys too. They really are not into clothes, give it time! I forgot to mention that Sunday, August 31st was Logan's 5th birthday. Poor kid got gypped out of another celebration. I got him an ice cream cake from Cold Stone and we had a little party here. Plus he got to go shopping.
My birthday is Saturday the 6th, the only thing I want for my birthday is to go home and be with Chad! (although I might buy something for myself too!)
Now I just have to play the waiting game. I have to wait for the power to come back on before I return and I have to wait for my truck to be repaired. Once that is fixed Chad can come and get me.
I have had it with hurricanes!

Sorry about my last post. I was using my CrackBerry and it changes spellings on me and I thought it fixed it. I need to set the record straight; I didn't eat oringles for dinner, I ate pringles.
I just want to say THANK YOU to all my blogger friends for your prayers and support! I can't tell you you how much that has meant to me. Every time my phone would chime that I had a message it made me smile. My family and friends have been great! My LA-BFF Jill is THE most positive person I have ever met. She can literally find the silver lining in just about anything. Saturday night I called her, in tears, because I knew she would make me feel better (after all she would understand since she lives here too). After I told her what had happened she laughed. Which made me laugh, my story did sound completely ludicrous. I couldn't help but laugh even though that was one of the worst days in my life! She turned my frown upside down! Luv ya Jill!
Today Gustav hit LA. Chad is going on a recon mission tomorrow in NOLA and after that he is going to try to go to our house to see if everything is OK and he will let me know. Over 1 million homes are without power, I am pretty sure we are in the 1 million. We will have to replace everything in the fridge and freezer. But if that is all there is wrong, I'll take it!
I will keep y'all posted! Thanks again!!
