Kinda Upset...but that's what I get for snooping. I really thought Jason was different. I thought he was the good guy, the one that any chick would like to be with. Well, I finally watched the Monday night "Women Tell All" show from Monday night and was bothered by the preview for the After the Final Rose show. How Chris said that something was so devastating. So, I'm thinking..oh no, someone has tragically died. I go to snooping this morning and find something that irritates me. So, Jason picks Melissa, like we all think he does and then at the After the Final Rose show (taped in January), they keep taping because Jason dumps Melissa for Molly. Supposedly, Molly was his pick from the very beginning but ABC wouldn't let the whole season be about him and Molly. They wanted drama and so they tell him to pick Melissa and then he can be with Molly when it's all over. WHAT??? That's crap. He needs to get into showbiz if that's the case, because he did some really great acting around Melissa. I knew when Chris asked him if he was happy, he had this look on his face and said yes...smiled, but not too much. Weird.

So, Sunday evening Lauren says she is sooooo sleepy and she can't even hold her head up. Considering that her and Jackson were up at 6 a.m. and ready for the day that morning, I figured it was from that. We got to my mother in law's and play cards. She stays on the couch the whole time and eventually gives in to the sleep around 4:30. At 7:30, she wakes up and throws up. I'm thinking great, stomach favorite! So we leave, she sleeps the whole way home. We get home, give her a bath, make her a palet (sp?) in the floor of our room and she goes back to sleep. The kids are out of school on Monday and I stay home with them, still thinking she has the stomach virus. She never gets out of her pajamas. All she does is lay on the couch or my bed watching tv. She eats a grilled cheese for super around 5, gets a bath and goes to bed. Tuesday morning, she wakes up..acts fine, send her to school. Tuesday evening, acts fine but not much of an appetite. Wednesday morning..acts fine..Wednesday evening, sleeps the whole way home, won't eat supper, sleeps on the couch when we get home until I have her get a bath and then she goes back to bed. Yesterday morning, wake her up and she is fine again. I still call the doctor because something is going on with my little one! They want her to come in after school and get swabbed for the flu. GREAT! Anyway, Jackson has an eye doctor appointment, so I get my mother in law to meet me at the eye doctor so she can stay with him while I take Lauren to get swabbed. Lauren has had the flu twice in her life already and she is only five. So, low and behold...the child has the flu! Not just one strain, but two strains...A and B!! I never knew you could have two strains at one time!! The first I had heard of this was my nephew last week had both strains in addition to strep throat and an ear infection! We have not been around him if anyone's wondering. The doc says I need to get start getting her a flu shot. What's the point? The flu shot didn't even work this year, nor has the Tamiflu. Of course, Lauren is already over the worst we think of the flu and Tamiflu wasn't an option for her anyway as it is only effective if you start it the first two days of the flu. I never would have thought the flu with Lauren anyway because the two times before, she spiked a fever of 102.9 and that was her only symptom. This time, not but a 99.9 fever and nothing but sleeping.

Weekend Travels

This past weekend, we went to Springdale for Chris' annual arrowhead show that he likes to go to. I go to shop in Rogers at the WONDERFUL Pinnacle Hills Promenade Mall. LOVE IT!!! I racked up on a lot of great deals, especially at Limited Too since they are going to be Justice now. I was able to get Lauren 6 different things for only $28.00. Crazy. Anyway, on our journey up there, I couldn't help but take some pics!
Here's Chris driving, not wanting me to take his picture:
Who is John Paul Hammerschmidt and why is there an interstate named after him...and what kind of name is Hammerschmidt anyway? Was he teased in school?
This license plate from Louisiana reads "DASRITE". haha What's he right about?
I just think this tunnel is cool...I need to start collecting pictures of tunnels, like the one in Mobile...where are there others? Anyone know?

On a sad note, I'm not sure what happened to Ms. Bobbie's son, but Ms. Bobbie, if you are reading this, I'm very sorry for your loss and am praying for you! Love you!

Tinseltown Tuesday/Wednesday

There wasn't much to report yesterday except that apparently Chris Brown beat Rihanna up pretty bad and faces felony charges and nine years in prison.

Today, though, I came across that Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight are both leaving Grey's Anatomy. Sad to see, but the show will still be great! I guess Izzie does have cancer and it will ultimately get her.
No comment really on the Bachelor. I did read though, that Deanna is dating Ace from The Real World: Paris. He is from Georgia also.
So, glad she didn't try and still Jason away from Melissa! haha

Hope everyone had a good weekend! I had to start off the week with this picture of Lauren! haha My mom found her in this tub yesterday and we thought it was cute, so I go get the camera. Lauren got embarrassed and hid her face. You can tell in her eyes that she is secretly mad at me! haha

Tinseltown Tuesday

Not much going on in Hollywood this week either!
Britney is going on tour later this year and her kiddos are going to be able to come with her. She will have three houses that will be bases for her and the kids around the US and she is supposedly renting one at each location for K Fed too.
The contestants for Dancing with the Stars will be announced on ABC this Sunday night.
Tori Spelling will return as Donna on 90210. I super excited about that but I think I'm the only person in America that watches this show. haha
Michael Phelps stood to lose sponsers when a picture of him smoking from a bong surfaced this past week. He apologized and everything seems to be hunky dorey.
The Hannah Montana movie will be out in theatres on April 10th and High School Musical 3 will be on DVD on Tuesday, February 17th.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will be out in theatres on June 26th!!!! Can't wait! You can watch the trailer here.
Bachelor News:
I was so upset when Stephanie got voted off lastnight. I had come to really like her and although I didn't think she and Jason clicked, I still was routing for her to a certain extent. I so hope that enough people will call in for her to be the next Bachelorette. I know I am. I do not like Naomi at all. But I know that if he kept Stephanie and went to her hometown and met Sophia, it would have been more real and leading Stephanie on and he didn't want to bring himself into Sophia's life for nothing. Good call. I'm still routing for Melissa or Jillian...but so scared he will chose Molly. Just don't think she is right for him. We shall see. I'm ready to see the drama with Deanna though!! Thoughts?
I think it is probably true. I hear that Molly and Melissa are his final two, which definately makes sense to me.
