Schools out! Schools out! Teacher let the fools out!

Casa de Drama- A weekly summer recap in pictures 

In a surprising twist of fate, I find myself looking forward to summer break this year. Weird, I know! But nonetheless, here I am! To   commemorate this (unexpected) feeling, I am kicking off this summer long series, where I will give you a glimpse into our daily lives through pictures and brief "recaps" of some of the funny things happening in this crazy zone we call home! 
Welcome to my Casa de Drama...
Well, summer break has officially begun here at Casa de Drama! It has been a crazy busy week and we have had several "big" things happen, including my sweet little baby girl Jessica finishing elementary. Ugh. Which has made me an emotional sap the last few days. Sometimes I am a blubbering fool. Ok...more often than not these days. I think it may be a side effect of getting older...'s what you missed:


I went to work. Blah. Monday's are usually horrible for me because I hate getting up early. And I have to be at work at 7. And it's a 30 minute drive. Thank goodness I only have to work 2 days a week!

But all of that nonsense was made up for by my wonderful daughter, Jessica. Here was my Facebook post about it-

You know what is happening at my house RIGHT. THIS. MINUTE?!
I am getting an awesome foot massage by my 11 year old. WITHOUT even asking!
Boom! Jealous? I would be too.
I wish she would stay this age FOREVER! I am not ready for a teenage daughter! And she is soooo sweet.....

Brennan pondered about how her dad and I met with this funny little conversation:

Brennan: Where did you find dad?
Me: What do you mean?
Brennan: You know "find" him! When you didn't know him but then you did. Did you find him on a bench?
Me: *laughing* On a bench?!
Brennan: Yes! You found him sitting on the bench and then you kissed him. Then you got married! Right?! Isn't that how it went mom?!

Maybe it is time to lay off the fairy tale movies before she ends up marrying a homeless bum....LOL

That is actually NOT quite how it went. It was a bowling alley bar. Romantic huh?! I was there singing karaoke and he was there playing pool and drinking beer with his buds. But I think I will let her continue to believe in her version a while longer... 

 I made my FIRST EVER guest blogger appearance! Sticky Fings was desperate kind enough to ask me to write a post for her blog. And I wrote this awesome little diddy:

I also worked all day again. Then I got stuck in a giant Michigan road construction traffic jam for about 45 minutes on my way home, which left the kids to their own devices for dinner. They concocted a meal of ramen noodles mixed with mustard and hot sauce that I have politely coined "Prisoner's Delight" or maybe just "Vomit" and I am most sure could have been crowned the winner over on RachRiot's White Trash Wednesday post (if I hadn't been overwhelmed by crazy kid drama, I probably would have entered it!) ...But whatever. They ate it, not me! I, on the other hand, being off the hook from cooking a gourmet meal, scrounged around and found some stale combos in my purse. Coupled with a glass of wine. Classy, I know! 
The kids were in fine (fighting) form and ended up being sent to bed early, as this post so clearly reiterates-
Jess: (doing homework) Mom can you look up the word fummed. F-U-M-E-D
Me: That is fumed. And it means mad.
Kk: (sitting in time out) Like psycho mad?
Me: Very angry. Yes.
Kk: Oh, so like you are right now?

Hmmmm. You haven't even SEEN psycho yet. But keep it up and it's gonna be a looooong summer. 

Once the kiddos were thrown and duct taped tucked neatly into bed, I rekindled my love affair with my wine bottle and worked on rearranging my blog while the hubs was working late.


The day I was looking forward to all week. The day my oldest daughter celebrated her transition from elementary school to junior high. I worked Wednesday, so that I could take the day off and get her all dolled up for it. And she asked me to wear MAKEUP! Can you believe that?! I am SO not ready for all that!  

They did a "Candy Grammy" theme and she won the "Bubble Yum" award for her bubbly personality. It was an awesome day.

Which led to this tweet-
I swear. Even simple things like my kids growing up turns me into a blubbering fool these days.
Brennan decided that we picked the wrong name for her. I mean..what do we know anyway?!

Brennan (to daddy): You named me Brennan! When I grow up, I am going to name my daughter ELSA!
Hubs:(oblivious) Oooh. That's a pretty name!
Brennan: Yea. And she is gonna have FROZEN powers! And turn things to ice. (top of lungs) "Let it goooooo, let it goooooo...."

Aaaand here we go again!

Which also meant another kill me now WONDERFUL concert. She really oughta start charging admission fees!

Also it was FINALLY the end of this seriously looooong school year (stinkin' snow days. ugh.)
Schools out, schools out! Teacher let the fools out!

We can finally move into our lazy routine of hanging out poolside, wearing pjs all day, and maybe even squeezing in a few naps! Ok...maybe not that EXACTLY...but I AM looking forward to summer vacation this year. I have decided to commemorate that (unexpected and unusual) feeling by writing a recap and taking a picture each day this summer. That way we can look back at the end of summer at all the great things we have (not) accomplished! I will be posting them weekly and calling them "The Casa de Drama Series" so be sure to check them out!

  1. I too am excited about summer vacation.. which everyone keeps telling me is weird because then they will be home with me all day! I still have a week left though! I just want school done! Sure, four boys at home between 11 and 7 months old.. it should be interesting.. but I think I will survive!

    1. I think I will too! (I am not sure how many bottles of wine will be sacrificed in the process....but whatever!) I think part of the issue this year (for me anyway) is the fact that the school year was extended so far due to snow days! It seemed like it would NEVER get here....

      I may regret being excited in a week or sure to check back!
