Update on my family

Ok, was gonna do this a while ago. Couldn't find pics, am a trainwreck at blogging, and tend to procrastinate. Anyway, since I am home sick. Thought I would finally update you on my family and how we are all doing. Here ya go!

Here is me, Norman and Madison. I am doing OK at my new job, definitely keeping me hopping. It's crazy to try and track and care for 102 elderly people with varying needs. For some reason I love it though. Norman is retired Coast Guard (he did drug interdiction on the boats), now he works in collections. He is crazy about salt water fish (yes we have Nemo) and also his 68 silver Mustang. We go to car shows and hang out with our car club people. Madison is in the 2nd grade. A very smart girl. Unfortunately, she also has the Proffitt gene of talking too much...surprise! Yet can still make great grades. She is for the most part, gentle kind and easy to get along with. Says some of the most bizarre, grown up things.

Here is Josh, Manda and Ginger. Josh is still working at Micron. They are moving to Virginia in 3 weeks (my heart is breaking). But, I don't blame them. Josh has always wanted to travel and it's a great opportunity. Manda is a stay at home mom, preggers again, due in January, can be evil if you touch the food she craves. I've been very lucky to have so much time with her. I'll be lost not having them around. Ginger is 2....ICK! Has really hit the terrible 2's. She flounces around with her hands on hips arguing, yes arguing with me. She also knows where I hide the binkies. And like all my grandkids, for some reason Grammy's bed is the place to be.

Here is Matt, Desi, Katelyn and Kaden. Matt and Desi are doing awesome. She's a waitress, pays better than most jobs, and with her wicked sense of humor she totally rocks as a waitress. Matt is working construction. I THINK....hint, hint....that they are thinking about adding to their family right now. That would totally work for me. I am a selfish grammy and could always do with another baby. Katelyn is in first grade, very smart little girl....definitely a girly girl. Kaden is in pre-school. Sadly, he no longer runs up to me screaming my name and wanting kisses all over. I hate it when they become big boys. He is definitely a daddy's boy. Worships Matt.

This is Erin and Alex. Erin just moved back home from Colorado. She is going back to work as a CNA at her old facility. She is really good at what she does and someday I hope she'll follow in my footsteps and become a nurse.....she definitely has the personality and knack for it. Alex is 3, FINALLY out of his terribe 2's (about time). He is such a little love. He is totally into cars, trucks or anything that is all boy. He's shy sometimes.

We had our pumpkin carving party last night at Matt and Desi's. Matt made Bacon Potato Chowder, I brought roll, Manda brought drinks. It is total chaos when we are together, but we all love it. It started out really fun, the kids loved scooping out the guts. Somewhere along the line though, they got bored,decided to go play with each other. All the adults wound up actually carvin the pumpkins. Ultimately, I think they all turned out awesome! What do you think? Are these the cutest, funnest grandchildren ever?

My take on the cute stuff

Ok, so as you can see I totally copied the lady from thrifty decor chic. Way cute stuff. And super easy to do. I can't believe I got it done. Seeing as I have a sinus infection that went into an ear infection and tooth abcess. I feel like crap! Thank goodness for antibiotics. Will post later my pics from our pumpkin carving party with the kids and update you on them. Very cute.

Hi all,
I am trying to change my background, etc....I seem to have lost my layout tab to make changes...any ideas?

Tuesday, October 14, 2008


Not sure how to copy and do this.....however....will try to expose myself terribly.

1.. I am shy.....that will shock my family. But I really am. I always read other people first. Then venture forward.

2.. I am loyal...I will back you to the wall if u deserve it and even if you dont. The back side of this is that if you don't deserve it,I will be honest.

3..I am TERRIFIED (sp) of committment......if u knew family u would think that odd.

4..I am smart....actually this is a family trait. We are areally smart strong women....(Thanks Dad....You don't even know what you have begat in the future.)

5..I love crazy people....truly do. I can't imagine my life without them. I hurt, kiss, hold, hug, but still adore the quirks that life gives to others. And am grateful they share it with me.

6..I FREAKIN am terrified of ferris wheels. Total panic attack. Is a joke with family. Freakin" carnies.....sux...ick....

7..Can't end this tag without a sisters thing....It's not a born or married or borrowed thing. I have sisters. I don't know how I survived without my sisters.. I have born, borrowed (Cathy, Tracey), Married(Janeal, Suzette). I don't know how anyone can live without their sisters......Mine have been my lifeline......Thank you sisters of my heart.

I'm Back

Hi All,
Thought I would give this a try again. Life has been incredibly busy for me and I will try to update. This might be a long post...hehe. I quit my job as administrator and am now working as a Health Services Director. It's crazy busy and things are a mess there, but I love it. I thought maybe I'd post some pics and update the family.
This is Manda and Josh. They are doing awesome. He works at Micron and she stays home with Ginger and is expecting a new one. She's one of my best friends (I know, daughter, go figure.) I am lucky enough to get to spend time with her often and talk even more.

This is Norman. He's my boyfriend, significant other, fiance, whatever. He's been a great source of support and is wonderful to both me and my family. I'm lucky to have him in my life. Goodness knows us Proffitt gals can be a tad high maintenence.

Apparantly, I have lost some of my pictures. I will post again when Norman comes over and helps me find them.....I seem to be a walking trainwreck....jeez.
