Looking it easy?

Free Graphics
As the new year approaches I have been thinking alot to myself what that means for me. The New Year is supposed to represent a clean start ( so we would like to think) but I wonder how many out there are haunted by past events. When I think about my past, there are so many things that I could have done differently. But then if I had done them differently would I be where I am and have what I have today. I think that this year has been a bit monumental for me. I have become a stronger person that I ever thought I could me. I have learned to stand up for myself, and I have learned how to be more loving towards my husband. Not that I wasn't loving, I just went into a bit of a nagging spell.
But it isn't just this year I reflect upon. I thought back to different times in my life that had major impacts on me, not all good, and the emotions come flooding back. I wonder, if every year is a clean start, why do things that happened 7 years ago still hurt when I think about them. I guess it's probably the same reason that I smile when I think about the wonderful things that have happened in my life.
2007 is going to be a major year for us, we are welcoming a new child into the world, and even though that hasn't happened yet, I smile and shed a happy tear.
I like the fact that I feel and I don't forget. It makes me who I am.
Happy New Year Everyone! I will see you again in 2007!

After Holiday Highlights

Well I hope that everyone made it through the holidays unscathed. Our family managed to make it through with out a bunch of bloopers. Recap:
1. Went to my parent Christmas Eve and share our news of the new baby. It took my mother about 5 minutes to get what we were telling her.
2. Went to church with parents on the Eve, only to sit through an hour of a really weird Christmas message that was unappropriate for the holiday and my child in my lap.
3. Woke up around 2:30 am Christmas Morning with bad bad cramping almost went to the hospital, but farted and felt better. (must have been the greens)
4. Christmas morning, my son saw that santa brought him his very own vaccum cleaner. He played with it for 3 hours and refused to open any more gifts.
5. Puppy went into heat , on my furniture.
6. Spent the holiday in our new home, with just me, my son, my husband and 3 dogs. The 3 of us woke up together. Went down stairs together. Opened presents together. Ate breakfast Christmas morning together. Cuddled at nap time together. I am getting warm fuzzies just thinking about that!

Christmas with the Littles

Just a little peekaboo into our world at Christmas!

According to a loser, I need a warning label

Here is a snippit of the article found here
"A leading professor in the U.K. said that obese people should be warned about the health risks of their weight when buying clothes, according to The Daily Mail.
Naveed Sattar, professor of metabolic medicine at the University of Glasgow, said that oversized clothing should have obesity help line numbers sewn on them to try to reduce Britain's obesity crisis.
The professor made the recommendations in this week's issue of the British Medical Journal."
Sir George Albert, the U.K.'s national director for emergency care, joined other health professionals in their recommendations. He wants the government to take a more proactive response to obesity.
The suggestion would be to put the label on all clothes with waist sizes over 37 inches for boys or 31 inches for girls. Women's clothes over size 16 would also get a label. "
This asshole thinks that there should be political intervention on obesity. Yes, this is only for the UK, but if they do it, who is to follow. I couldn't imagine going to the store and buying a pair of jeans with a little reminder basically saying "hey know you could lose a little!"

Well duh, does that jerk think I want to be overweight. Not everyone makes the choice. While there are things that I could do to lose weight, that is my choice, not the choice of some loser that knows nothing about losing weight after child birth. What about those that are seriously depressed over thier weight? Does he think that a label is going to change that? It won't. I doubt that any company in thier right mind would volontarily put this label on clothing, but if it is mandatory??? I know that we want to send a message to our children that healthy is good, but what about the message to love who you are. There are some medical reasons for obesity as well. Now he wants to stick a label to let you know that society says you are fat. If they get away with that, I wonder what would be next.

Two little pink lines

I have waited awhile now to sneak a peek at two little pink lines. I can't tell you how impatient I have been and how many tests I have taken. I never had to wait before. Well yesterday, finally, after praying over an $8 stick...and waiting 3 minutes... I looked down and at first glance saw one pink line...then as if God smiled down on me, a 2nd pink line began to appear.

This Christmas will be great! What a gift at such a perfect time of year!

I never knew...

This history of the Mistle Toe, so I looked it up HERE and this is what I found:
Origins of its name - The common name of the plant is derived from the ancient belief that mistletoe was propagated from bird droppings. This belief was related to the then-accepted principle that life could spring spontaneously from dung. It was observed in ancient times that mistletoe would often appear on a branch or twig where birds had left droppings. "Mistel" is the Anglo-Saxon word for "dung," and "tan" is the word for "twig". So, mistletoe means "dung-on-a-twig".
Now doesn't that make you wanna run out and kiss someone!

I always feel like, somebody's watchin me...

So what's up with this post?
I am talking about the Terrorist Surveillance Program. I am talking about the government tapping my phone and listening in on my calls to see if I am plotting some national terrorist attack. What right does the government have to listen in on my phone calls. I am a blond hair blue eyed all american chick. I have rights that need to be protected.....I have rights that need to be protected...I have rights that need to be protected. AHHHH I get it now. The government has every right to tap my freaking phone!!! I have nothing to hide. And I don't think there are a bunch ofnational security guys sitting on the other end getting off listening to me and Ang talking about our periods.. me not concieving yet and how I should take my temperature down there to make for better fertility... oh and how our husbands don't vacuum the house right and what a stinky diaper Ty just had while I was changing him and talking at the same time, her calling the dog into the house and making sure her daughter Layla is happy with her apple juice and coloring books.
On On August 17, 2006, U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor correctly ruled the program unconstitutional and illegal. (Yeah I'm a little late here) but it pisses me off. I don't want another world trade center. I don't want another call from my Aunt telling us that our Uncle was in the World Trade Center...crying on the other end. I don't want to be waiting all day to find out if my friend that worked in the Pentegon was safe. I don't want them calling my brother telling him that he is being called up for active duty to fight another war when one isn't finished yet.

Here is the article that prompted me to write this post.

So wire tap me when I call Germany... You won't hear much, but I sure will feel alot safer.

It's time to start thinking about matter how much you hate it!

So it is that time of year again...time to start thinking about our New Year's Resolutions. I wonder how the resolution all got started. Was it "New Year, Fresh Start" thinking...if that were the case, how come at the first of the year...all the same shit from the following year seems to follow close behind...or add to my behind. I always say "I am going to lose weight this year" truth is, the average person packs on 10 pds a year, and this year..we are hoping to have another baby. SO I doubt that I will lose any weight. So my resolutions.. Paint the house, and get the basement finish....oops...I think I just came up with my husbands resolutions...!!! Funny how a ton of house repairs seem to happen when your prego and can't lift a finger to help! I do have a resolution for my son..get rid of the ninny. It will be tough, but hopefully he will be occupado with all the toys he will get over the holiday.(hopefully) So what about myself? Well I am going to try to have more patience and show the ones around me just how much they mean to me. Also, over the last year, if I take a long good look at myself, I was quite the nag. I don't want to be a nag I will try to spare my hubby's hearing and learn to bite my tounge a little more frequently. Other than that... I have no clue!
What about you?

Mommy Slut!!

Click Kane's Pic to log on to hot 99.5
Kane wasn't the good one in the Bible ...right?
So this morning I am driving along, appeasing my child as I do every morning. We turn on the radio and take a listen, like we do, every morning. They are talking about the Mattell Little Mermaid doll and how some mom is making claims that the doll called her child a slut. So Sammy, one of the personalities had a supposed recording of the doll. They played it and it was Sammy in a hi pitched, somewhat awkward, English voice stating "this is the little mermaid and your a slut". Since they proceeded to play that clip several son was in the back of the car saying the same exact thing! Oh man Oh Man, I was thinking I was going to have some explainin' to do when I dropped him off with the nanny. So I called the radio to let them know of my disappointment (not really, thought it was rather funny) When Kane and I were talking (he is the new host of the show) Tyler called me a slut. Yes fellow bloggies, my son said 'Mommy Slut', while the majority of the Washington area tuned in. Kane had a brief 'Uncle to Tyler' talk... but I fear for the nanny today. I have to remind him that it is not a term of endearment. I will not be writing this down in his baby journal!

RWA and I were talking about clear channel firing our favorite radio hosts lately, I will admit I was devestated when Mark and Kris were fired..but all in all Kane has won my attention and loyaty. He does this kid satan routine that is hilarious...guess ya gotta be there. Here is the link to the stream! Listen in Canada!!!

Yes, 'spelling nerd' I know the name is spelled Cain.

If he is...should he say he is???

Thank you to my Canadian bloggies for inspiring this post

Hubby and I were in the car over the weekend and Clay Aiken's Christmas song came on and we were saying how he grew so much in the American Idol competition. Hubby made the remark that he doesn't understand if he is gay, why he just doesn't come out and say he was gay. In an interview with Diane Sawyer Clay responded to the question"

"I don't understand why you want to know," Aiken shot back. "I don't understand why it's any of your business.

"At some point, [the question] becomes just really rude, you know?" he said in an interview that aired Thursday on "Good Morning America."

Sawyer went right after Aiken, asking at the top of the interview if he was "ready to come out and say you're gay."

"That would not make sense for me do to that," Aiken said.

"I've gotten to a point where I feel it's invasive. Forget it. What I do in my private life is nobody's business anymore, period.

Is he right? Being a public figure, is it right to keep your sexuality a secret? The amount of stars this year feeling the pressure have caved in and come out of the closet. It gets to a point where there is so much speculation it consumes their public life and more than likely effects their work. Clay Aiken so far though since the Internet incident, has kept his sexuality a secret. I wonder at this point is it more detrimental to his career. I remember hearing news that a Church ended up canceling a concert they scheduled with Clay b/c of the speculation that he was gay. Nice of a church to discriminate, huh? But back to te original question...why should he come out? He is a performer, that is his employment.. we don't go to the grocery store and say to the clerk "before you ring me up, I need to know your sexual preference!" Why should it be any different for Aiken? I hope that he stands his ground, and I hope that even if he did come out with a partner, he still wouldn't answer the question and hopefully it won't have an adverse impact on his career. He is an upstanding guy that has always been religious, has always helped his community, donated and volunteered for charities and has been a huge mentor to our children. His sexuality should overshadow that.

Let's get political!

Click the pic for a larger view

UPDATE 12/10 heard on the news today President Bush stated the following "If we were to fail, it would be b/c we gave up!"
I liked that statement

In today's news I read the following:

Oregon senator makes emotional break with Bush over Iraq war

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Republican Sen. Gordon Smith of Oregon made a dramatic break with President Bush on the Iraq war Thursday night, telling colleagues in an emotional speech on the Senate floor that he can no longer support a "lamentable" U.S. policy that has "failed."
Smith, a moderate who until now has been a supporter of the war, said he was at "the end of my rope when it comes to supporting a policy that has our soldiers patrolling the same streets in the same way, being blown up by the same bombs, day after day."
"That is absurd," Smith said. "It may even be criminal." Smith said while he doesn't believe Bush intentionally lied to get the United States into the war, he now thinks that "we have paid a price in blood and treasure that is beyond calculation" for a war waged due to bad intelligence. (Posted 10:05 p.m.)

While there are Iraq and Bush supporters, I feel that the sentiment through out America leans towards Anti Bush and Anti Iraq..pull our troops out! But I wonder, would that be a mistake? The first time we entered Iraq we pulled out way to early and left shambles( 11.5 months), this time would it be even more detrimental to do so. However, the war in Iraq officially began March 30, 2003. That is a long time. But then again, you have to consider this fact, Vietam lasted 8 years, Afganistan 5 yrs and counting, World War II 3 yrs 8mos, Korean war 3 yrs. So is time what it takes to get the job done? For the family members at home...It's a leader that gets the job done...for the troops over's a leader that gets the job done... and as we can see in the above article, for the's a leader that gets the job done!

Thoughts please, especially outsider veiws from other countries.


RWA in the comments section stated "You do not hear the stories about the groups of people who come running to them, thanking them for getting them out from under Saddam's dictatorship." - Of course not...that would make for boring news..

So I post this picture for you that my brother took while in Iraq!

Cute little kid waving to the soldiers...huh!

What to you DIS like about the holiday's

So it tis the season! I like this cartoon a bunch! But I really dislike Eggnog no matter how much liquor you put in it.
I figure I should get out now what I dislike about the holidays..just to get it out of my system and not have to burn for blowing my temper later.
I dislike the following:
Hunting for the perfect tree
Rude people with the bahumbug spirit in shopping centers
I dislike having to drive to my parents an hour and a half away then driving to my dad's(who is always complaining) then driving an hour to see my brothers, then and hour to my sister in laws then going home rushing to put out gifts then waking up rushing and having to drive to my mother in laws. Though I love seeing everyone, I can't stand the driving!!
It is so cold here during the winter and I can't stand cold.
I dislike feeling guilty for eating too much
But there is so much I do love....Mostly
This year is going to be so exciting waking up in our new home and watching my two year old open gifts. He has already snuck in the guest bedroom and peaked...try taking a toy from a two year old. I love the way my parents dote on him during the holidays. This will be the first year that I have with 2 new nieces in our family. This year we won't be driving 'as much' as previous years. My mother makes a stuff ham that kicks ass like nobody's business. Hubby always manages to buy me something to make me blush. I almost always get some Christmas nookie.
Our tree always looks perfect. I love watching the dogs eat thier treats from thier Christmas stockings..minus the occasional territorial growl. And I love being reminded every year that Christmas is not just about gifts, it's family, its the gift of life and love...who could not love that!

Plus....I got the best freaking Christmas gifts ever for everyone this year!! HA HA HA HO HO HO!

Ooops I did it again...

I can't believe I did it again. I lost my darn credit card! 4th time too! First time I lost it, I found it in a coat pocket after I cancelled it. 2nd time I lost it, I uhh..just lost it, 3rd time it fell under the bathroom sink cuz it was in my pants pocket. 4th time...just this week, uh I just lost it. Hubby was just dumb founded. I got lectured, especially b/c of the Christmas Holiday. Last year around this time, someone hacked our bank accounts while we were in the middle of buying a house and during the holiday shopping time. We were so upset and scared. Now I have just become a ditz and keep begging the hackers to come and git me!!! Michael says I need to glue the cards in my wallet. My reply "Then I will end up losing my wallet!" -Does this happen to anyone else?

Funny thing about the chick that hacked our accounts last year. When I called, the retailers wouldn't tell me the shipping address. They could charge my accounts, but not tell me what I ordered and where it was going. Nice. So I tracked the bitch down and let her have a piece of my mind. Luckily, we only ended up losing $50, but compared to a couple thousand that she wracked up...I was grateful!

Christmas Traditions...(plus your advent cartoon)

Everyone has holiday traditions. I wanted to share mine, they may be normal, they may not be.. I'd be curious to hear everyone elses traditions.
Here we go:
Every Year we bring out Giant 2ft. coloring books and color a page, then pack them away for the next year
Every year we buy Whistle Pops, (1950's candy) and everyone has to play the song that is in their whistle pop. Over the years they have been harder and harder to find.
Every year my mother reads the story of the birth of Jesus while we eat her homemade muffins (my great grand mother's recipe)
Every year we put on the tv with the fire log and music playing while we open presents.
Every year we HAVE to watch the Christmas Story. "You'll poke your eye out!!"
Hubby and I take turns every year, he decorates the house in Colored lights on his turn, and I decorate in White lights on my turn. I know, I am so boring.
Every Year, I read my version of the Night Before Christmas. I will share it with the comments section.
Now I wouldn't say anything on my tradition list is weird... I look forward to it every year.

Mani It's Cold in Here!

Okay, so I am at work right now, the thermostat is broken, I decided not to wear stockings, shit I never wear stockings, we have no batteries to start the thermostat, I don't foresee anyone but me going out and buying batteries because the temps dropped 30 degrees outside and I really don't feel like freezing my ass off today!

Dec 3rd Adult Advent Calender...

So hubby put up the lights tonight. I must say, our home looks cute. I can't wait for people to drive up the way and say, Oh I like your pretty! Michael worked really hard on them...I worked hard watching him work hard. I will post pics later. Anyone else notice though, how expensive Christmas decorations are? I really have to shop around to find a deal. I think that this year we will go the day after Christmas and stock up on decorations. I just can't see myself paying $30 for one star to decorate my window, just one window. I live in an older towne too, where the houses are from the 18 - early 1900's. When you drive through the old towne, people have all their windows decorated with wreaths..even the back windows...that's like a billion dollars!!!! Hopefully the after market sales will be good this year!

Here is Dec 1st

Mental Note to Self

Next time, make sure the mini pup is not hidden under the covers, BEFORE having sex with hubby.
It really makes for an uncomfortable situation.

Since it has been a popular discussion....

This is what a Penis Flower looks like....and no I am not kidding. Some Actually call it a dick weed. It's real name is Amorphophallus titanum.

Bit of the article:
"There comes a time in a flowering plant’s life when it must learn about the birds and the bees, involve them in its sex life and produce a beautiful blossom. One plant sprouts a 60-plus-inch phallus, heats up, stinks like a corpse, does its best to attract carrion beetles and flesh flies and, after three pungent days of sexual activity, goes limp."

Apparently it takes 8 years to raise one of these bad boys! Go here to read the full article. I hope this clears the air ya'll...but not if a penis flower is near!

I know he heard the WOOOSH!

Shopping, Saturday, had to pee like a mo fo! So we went into Best Buy so Hubby could stare at all the 56 inch televisions we were not going to buy, and I could use the toilet. I walk into the bathroom and there is some best buy employee teen talking on her cell phone. I wasn't sure if she was trying to hide, but I had to pee. On my way back to the stall I hear her talking "Yes, I will be by this afternoon Mr. so and so to fill out the paperwork" immediately this did not sound like an unimportant phone call. So there I was, peeing, very loudly in an echoing bathroom, she is still talking with no signs of letting up. I wasn't going to stop my routine b/c her dumbass couldn't find a better place to talk than in a public bathroom. I know he hear the WOOOOOOSH! It was not quite at all, and just to rub it in a bit I took my time washing my hands. It was the least I could do, since someone had the pleasure of listening to me pee!

What have I got to be Thankful for....

Alot of people may ask that question this time of year. While I might not have everything that my little heart desires... I am thankful for the simple things in my life:
I am thankful for:
*The wonderful Husband I have that kisses me every morning when I open my eyes and every night when I close them
*The beautiful little boy that calls me mommy and lets me know that I am perfect in his eyes.
* The nice home that I have, and that I can actually call home.
*The great parents that are there for me every step of the way
*My dear friends, near or far, are real friends, sisters and brothers.
*My 3 brothers, that never cease to amaze or shock me, and my sister that has blessed my life as a confidant and with an absolutely amazing neice and awesome brother in law!
*I am thankful that I have cloths on my back and food in my tummy.

I hope everyone this year takes a look around and realizes the simple things in life are the ones we should thank God for. I never thought that I would be 29 and finally settled down, with a home and a family and for once, stability. I know who I am, I finally love who I am, I am thankful for everything.

Saying good-bye...I thought it would be harder

A little tid bit bout me. B4 hubby, I was in a relationship for almost 8 years. And one day, out of the blue, he ended it. I was devestated. I never thought I would get over it. And then, I met Michael, and he opened my eyes. He showed me what it was like to really be loved. I talked to the ex a couple of times through the years. One thing he asked me, "do you still have the ring" when I answered yes, he asked me never to get rid of it. I was curious why he cared. He said, "I gave it to you because I loved you and I want you to remember that, promise me you will never get rid of it" and I promised. It was a pretty 1/2 carat solitaire. The one I had been eyeing for over a year. The one I thought I would never get. The one I had to painfully remove from my wedding finger and shove way back in the back of my drawer so I would try to forget. Well I sold it yesterday. I sold it for far less than it was worth. I thought I would be heart broken. It has been 7 years since I last wore it. When I showed it to my mother 2 weeks ago, she said it was pretty and a shame I couldn't put the diamond into something else. I lifted my hand and under the light 2 carats of bling flashed in her eyes, and she said "well that is way prettier and you got the great hubby to go with it!". I am kind of relieved to finally be able to say good bye. I have my memories, I don't need a ring shoved far in the back of my drawer to remind me, and after all, you can't put a high price tag on those.
I hope that someone puts the diamond in a nice setting and is able to wear it forever.

My dear old friend, was it me?

I have been thinking about some of my dearest friends in life. I never see any of them anymore. Some have faded away and we don't even talk. Hubby's friends are the same way. For Hubby, taking a wife was like catching a disease, becoming a father meant the disease became contageous. When I think back to who I loved the most in my life, Jessica, comes to mind. She was one of the most beautiful people I had known growing up. We were inseperable. Our social circles were different. She was the open minded one out of the two of us. She got married a week after graduating high school. I didnt mind her hubby, but he was creepy. He would give a hug that made you feel dirty. It was no surprise her sister and I went to her the night before and asked her if she was sure. Time passed and she moved w/ her hubby in the military. Here and there I would get the tidbits from her life. The descisions she made were unlike her. Not beautiful and not the ones a married woman should make. Then my bachelor night she got shit faced drunk and begged me not to marry Michael b/c marriage was bad. I blew it off until the night b4 my wedding, again she got shit faced drunk and kept me up till 4am. I was devastated. She came to me that morning to apologize. I said to her "I am getting married today, and as much as I would like to get into this right now, this is my day and I will not ruin it, but when I come home from my honeymoon, we will talk b/c you need someone to talk to" I never made that phone call. Here and there I may talk to her. I have seen her a few times, once was the first time she had seen my newborn and she blew me off. She had just lost a ton of wight and looked gorgeous, more so than me and I felt that was rubbed in. Her language became a potty mouth and I looked at her 'differently'.
She almost died this summer. And still I haven't been able to bring myself to reach out to her. How do two people so close, grow so very far apart? Maybe it wasn't she that changed, maybe it was me. Maybe that is what I dislike so much. I have grown up. So if I call her now, what do I say?

Racial slurs & dirty F bombs in comedy...

Over the weekend, Micheal Richards,(Kramer from Seinfeld) performed at LA's Laugh Factory. I absolutely love that club. We had a blast there 2 years ago. Anyhoo...when you go to a comedy show, normally the audience is allowed to heckle and join in on the fun. Well, when an audience member did so, Mr. Richards spewed out a slew of hate words and insinuations towards the the audience member. Including using the "N" words more than 20 times in his less than 3 minute tyraid. Audience members were disgusted and left the show. Mr. Richards also left the stage. Now I know I love going to comedy shows. But when was it "okay" to become racially belligerent and obscene in the name of comedy. I have been to shows were the language just takes away from the act and it is no longer funny. It is awful when comedians make slurs about their own race, and awful when they make fun of others. Even sexual orientation or about women and sex. I paid for my parents to go to a comedy club last year for Christmas, and my mother said it was sweet of us, but that the language by the comedian was grotesque. Should we start giving the shows ratings, instead of PG we have "NR" for no racial slurs or "NB" not a bigot and I don't even want to touch the rating if they do...has it really come to that?

Double Jeapardy is a beautiful thing...isnt it?

Wow...OJ Simpson... I always knew that he got away with murder. Then with the law suit, never paying a dime, got away with murder twice. Now OJ pulls a "nanny nanny boo boo" you can't catch me move! Writing a book "If I Did It" a 'hypothetical' account of how he would of committed the murders of Ron Goldman and Nicole Simpson. It's the closest to a confession of murder I think we will ever get out of him and on top of it, he is getting paid millions. Murder for Profit. This is complete devastation to the families of the victims. But I worry what kind of message this is sending. Fox is actually going to air a special from OJ that is more of a promotion for the new book coming out. I am sure billions will tune in. I haven't decided if I will or not. I can't ever see myself purchasing the book b/c that is like paying him for the crime. But I wonder if I would succumb to the morbid curiosity of the TV Special. Something tells me I won't. I just can't believe that he can get away with something like this.

What is going on today?

UCLA Student Tasered by Police in Library

This is one of the most disturbing things I have seen in a long time. I am not sure what exactly took place to make this happen in the first place, but the escalation of the entire incident. This student's mother must be beside herself. I would like to hear your thoughts...

I finally did it...

I have become quite the ebay junkie has my hubby. But it seems that I have been able to find everything I have been wanting at cheaper prices. So I thought that there has to be something to this ebaying, if people like me are out there buying other people's used shit, then maybe I should sell mine. Last month I won a Tiki Barber Autographed Jersey from a charity auction. But when it came in the mail it had no certificate of authenticity with it. Hubby thought I got ripped off. So I decided to try and get my money back by putting it on ebay. I SOLD IT! I also made a $75 profit. I feel great...momma needs a new pair of really I do b/c my stupid dog ate mine last night!
So is that wrong of me to do that??? I explained where I bought it from, what my reserve was and did not offer a certificate. I kinda feel bad, but then again I don't. I know the thing is real. Hubby is just a stickler for those types of things. I ended up putting an old engagement ring on ebay too. I have 8 watchers but no takers yet. It is a great price for the ring. 1/2 carat for $350..put it in a new setting and you have a new ring. A really pretty one too. I am not going to wear it.

I wonder what else I could put on ebay. I think we should all come up with some ridiculous item to "our dirty little secret" and see how much we could fetch for it. Maybe someone will buy my doggy bitten shoes???? What do you think we should sell?

Need a hug today....?

I can hardly wait for this invention to become available. I would love to send it as a gift to my Canadian and German friends, and my favorite cousing out in Cali. It is the new Hug Shirt. It has sensors and is activated by a phone call.
It warms up and sends all the signals of a long distance hug from a friend. This thing is a must have for me!

I just have to say it...

I am so happy for Britney Spears. I hope this emotional time treats her well!

Oh the creamy goodness!

I fooled you with the title didn't I?

I don't know what it is about Starbux coffee. I have a cappacino/expresso maker at home. I am quite good at making a latte, cap or mocha. Oh the frothy goodness! Warms my tummy to the core. So if I am so good at it, why do I pay $4 every other day for this yummy treat. As I was sitting in the line of 15 cars ahead of me, I thought, "It has to be to save time"! I am only fooling myself here. Waiting in a Sbux line takes forever and I am almost never on time for work when I do. The only reason my son sits through it is the anticipation of a promised doughnut. His mouth waters just as much at mine when you approach and start to hear the roaring sounds of the frother and you get a wif of the fresh coffee aroma from perking fresh coffee beans picked by hand from the Himalayas. I calculate that I buy Sbux 3 to 4 times a week. That runs me $468 to $624 a year. When you think about that in coffee beans, that's alot of coffee beans. So why do I do it? The answer is simple....I can't make croissants...ya gotta have a coissant to go with your $4 cup of coffee...right?

Or is it pure laziness? I will never cop to that!

Casual Slack Has tagged me over at her place
Name 13 Random facts about myself...Here goes.

I love burnt pepperoni

I love taking all the marshmallows out of my lucky charms, putting them in a pile and eating them.

I used to be a size 9 (no really, I have the dress in my closet to prove it to my children one day)

I dream about either my poetry or my childrens book being published one day

I can't shower in a dirty bathroom

Speaking of bathrooms, I will not go #2 in a public one

I secretly wish that for one day I could be completly selfish with no ramifications

I dabbled in a few hallucinagens when I was younger

I used to think that I knew how love felt, until I met my hubby...that was the first time anyone had ever loved me...for me

Sometimes I dwell in the past too much

I hate my feet, even pedicured, I can't stand them

I can sing, like really well, sometimes I think I could make it in the finals on American Idol.

I graduated with a bachlors in English and can't spell worth a shit!

Ba Humbug already roundin' the corner!

Well the season is fast approaching. You would think that this time of year is a happy one for me. After all I have a beautiful family to spend the holidays with and some would be all alone. Well the holiday grinch has already showed his face for me yet again this year. Being 29 I thought that I would have control over my holiday where abouts by now. I thought that when I got married and then again when I had a child that the holidays would be "mine". I come from a very 'torn' background. Every year I had to decide which parent I was going to spite and which holiday. If I spent Thanksgiving with my mother, then Christmas would be with my father, BUT, not the entire Christmas. I would spend the eve with dad, then be rushed off in the morning to mom's or vice versa. So now, mom is re-married, dad re-married then divorced and is living with another woman, then we have hubby's family that is divorced as well. I am still close with my step-mother, mother of my brothers, so I have that house as well and it figures that everyone would live more than an hour apart. So this year I decided to host Thanksgiving and everyone could come to my house. One Big Happy Family.....peace for once. Well brother is flying to cali, Mother to NC, Sister will stop by for an hour, mother in law has already critisized the menu, father will not is not coming with new woman and sister in law is coming AFTER dinner. My first Thanksgiving....nice.
SO I decided that this year for Christmas I would go to my mother's on the Eve and come home with hubby and child that night to wake up Christmas morning, just the three of us, no pressure, on the 1st Christmas morning in our new home. Sweet, Personal, Simple,.....peace. ...finally....

Well now my mother is crushed that she is not coming over Christmas Eve to spend the night and see her grandson open gifts in the morning..........b..a...h..u..m..b..u..g! What do I do?

Friday Humor

Two brothers conversating in their room:
You know what?" says the 6 year old. "I think it's about time we started cussing."
The 4 year old nods his head in approval.
The 6 year old continues, "When we go downstairs for breakfast, I'm going to say something with 'hell' and you say something with 'ass'.
The 4 year old agrees with enthusiasm.
When their mother walks into the kitchen and asks the 6 year old what he wants for breakfast, he replies, "Aw, hell, Mom, I guess I'll have some Cheerios."
WHACK! He flies out of his chair, tumbles across the kitchen floor, gets up, and runs upstairs crying his eyes out, with his mother in hot pursuit, slapping his rear with every step. His mom locks him in his room and shouts, You can just stay there until I let you out!" She then comes back downstairs, looks at the 4 year old and asks with a stern voice, "And what do YOU want for breakfast, young man?"
"I don't know," he blubbers, "but you can bet your fat ass it won't be Cheerios!"

Military Response to John Kerry

Target shmarget fuggetaboutit!

I went to Target during my lunch hour. I know they have this new return policy...I returned a gift Ty got for his birthday a few weeks ago for a different toy that was "older". This time hubby bought some pj's for Ty and bought a 3T...(husbands)Ty wears a 2T. So I thought, simple exchange, shouldn't be a problem. I thought wrong. I came back with the new PJ's and about $120 worth of other stuff in my basket. The girl asked for the reciept, I told her I didn't have one, She said she could go off the credit card, hubby and I don't have the same credit card number, her reply "You DON'T have the same credit card" I answered her no. So she wanted my lisence. The she says "you have returned something here w/o a reciept b4 so I cannot take this back" My jaw dropped to the floor. I said "first of all, I am not returning, I am exchanging for the same item, just a different size". She continued to argue with me. I told her to call hubby and ask for his credit #, she wouldn't so I told her to get a manager. The manager was okay with accomodating me, but the cashier girl sat there and argued with her manager in front of me! I could of just left all the shit in my cart there for return girl to go put away.
I really thought that this policy was I the only one? I think Target just lost my business.

Guest Speaker...

So I'm over here on November 1, trying to defend myself from unprovoked
attacks in this
when Ellie asks if I would like to be a guest poster. Since she
and her husband are spending most of their time lately getting
it on
, I thought that was the least I could do to help out. Ellie, if
you conceive on the day when you post this instead of writing yourself, you
owe me (just kidding).

Kids. I don't have any myself. I've never been married, and I've never been
in a relationship close to serious enough to even discuss marriage, let
alone kids. But, I like kids. My brother has a five-year-old little boy, and
his aging uncle is usually exhausted, bumped and bruised after playing
together. I spend entirely too much money on him (according to my mother) on
stuff that my sister-in-law despises. But, hey, it's better than spending my
money at the bar - and I'm not the one who has to listen to the noise and
have the things scratching up my furniture and my shins. My nephew
loves the toys that his uncle buys him, and that's what matters. It's
all good.

I was glad my nephew came along. I am 39 years old and 16 months older than
my brother. Until my nephew's arrival, I was the one always catching grief
from my mother and other relatives about producing a grandchild. Never mind
that I wasn't married - or that my brother was. I was the oldest, so I guess
they assumed it was my responsibility. I suppose I could have shown up at a
family reunion and said, "Hey, there's a new kid on the way," then watched
all of their faces when their minds started racing and wondering if I had
gotten married without them knowing it. I could have made it even better by
telling them the mother was a stripper. My mother probably wouldn't have
been too happy with that, especially if some aging uncle or aunt had fainted
or had something more serious happen. I did take a Hooters waitress as my
date to a work-related banquet once - but that's for another time.

Next up is dealing with babysitting. I wouldn't mind, but I established a
few criteria when my nephew was born, and I am sticking to them. They
include the following:

1. He must be able to go to the bathroom by himself. He is getting
close to this point, but not quite (getting pants back up and buttoned
properly apparently is a challenge from time to time). (edit from ellie-if you don't have carpeting and you do have a mop...let him run around naked!)

2. He must be able to feed himself. He can handle this, for the most
part, so we would be cool going to McDonald's - or Hooters (I'm sure my
sister-in-law would love that too). (edit from ellie- Hey I'd take my kid to Hooter's...sounds like a weekend plan!)

3. He must be able to bathe himself. I don't bathe kids - especially
those that aren't mine. Something just doesn't seem right about that. (Edit from ellie-let the dog lick him clean...okay okay that might not be a good idea)

So, my mother is happy (at least not complaining as much), and life goes on.
Maybe one day, I'll have kids of my own. Until then, I'll just spoil my

Thanks for the time and the space, Ellie

John Kerry is just pissed my vote counted!

I always am the last one to hear about these things, but there I was, sitting on my couch playing online scrabble (rather losing) when the news caster is mumbling this or that about John Kerry. I look up when I see the clip of his speech the other day and hear the following :

"Education…if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

What happened to you asshole? Why did YOU end up in a war? Were you too stupid to do anything else with your life? It's not like you will run for president one day...oops you did run...YOU JUST LOST!!! I guess you are just bitter, a sore loser, what ever you want to call it. While G. W might not be the greatest president in history..he would never call his military ignorant! Senetor John Kerry, you have greatly offended me. My brother went to war for your freedom, he spent his 22st birthday preparing to fight a war in Iraq. He faced possible chemical war-fare, the death of his comrads, the possible loss of his own life. He missed my wedding and the birth of his 1st nephew then his christening. He missed Thanksgiving, instead he had sand in his mouth from non-stop windstorms. His face, lips and hands cracked and bled and his body shivered in the cold darkness of the dessert while you slept safe and sound in your bed with your entire family on Christmas Eve. I am deeply saddened by your remarks and pray that the Democratic party no longer stands behind your blind ambitions. I never thought this before, but you Mr. Kerry SUCK!

Oh Gee This is so much FUN!!!

So I had the choice to either attend a 3yr old birthday party, or a baby shower. Actually I really had no choice. Hubby took the son to the b-day party of screaming 2 and 3 yr olds fighting over who opens the presents and who gets the biggest peice of cake, and I was lucky enough to be the one who had to drive an hour & a half away for a shower of a girl that I always thought hated me and that I have only seen MAYBE 5 times in my life. How then did I get invited...b-friends sister is the one having the tater tot. Atleast I knew 3 people. The games were a little more fun this time, but the majority of this party was 2 hours of opening gifts. Then her mother says "OOOHHOOHHH we have one more game and Elnora HAS to play this one... I am volonteering her!!" giggle giggle snort snort! The game....who can suck apple juice out of a baby bottle the fastest. I don't know if you know this...especially you RWA... sucking anything out of a baby bottle takes alot of work...or should I say "skills" WHY was I the first one who posessed these skills? Especially by the mother of the group.....Ang, have you been sharing stories?

You might as well know...

I have been a little pre-occupado has been busy, which is a great thing and my mind has been settled on other things. You'll find out sooner or later with a post here and there so here it is...Hubby and I are trying to have another baby. Have been for a month now. While it is tons of fun , the waiting game is killing me. See baby #1 was a wonderful surprise, so there was no waiting involved. I feel like I am the only one in the world unable to concieve. So I logged on to research alittle about getting sperminated. Here are some of the tips they suggest:

Cut out caffine: Try switching to a milkshakes which will boost your calcium as well and assist in conception. (how will a milkshake assist in conception)

Also, try stress management techniques, such as yoga and meditation, which research suggests can also help in getting pregnant.

Buy something sexy: Some experts say that if a woman is highly aroused while she's having sex, the sperm has a better chance of fertilizing her egg. Other researchers don't agree. (this helps how)

The woman can try elevating her hips with a pillow so her cervix is exposed to the maximum amount of semen. (then they suggest laying there elevated for 30 minutes after sex, eeew!)

Make your vaginal environment as sperm-friendly as possible. (okay, I'll buy it some roses and give her a little sweet talk, maybe if she's good I'll take her out for dinner)

What happened to the good ole' fashioned..getting it on and getting pregnant. Why does this seem like such work, ovulation strips, a bbt thermometer, ovulation calender, positions...the list goes on.
This is not going to turn into a mommy blog....I promise...or a I wanna get preggers thing either, I just thought I would share some of the stupid shit out there to get women's hopes up. For me and hubby...the good ole fashioned getting it on, will have to do for now.

Ha Ha It's so tickley in here!!!

So there I was in good ole' Walmart minding my own business and this annoying redneck is blabbing into her phone, being sure to be as loud as she can so everyone can here, "You know what I got in my cart???" She repeats that twice so of course I had to look and I beheld the must get of the season, a stack of Tickle Me Elmo TMX's. I know the bitch didn't have that many kids, but that was before they posted the 2 elmo limit sign! So of course, I had to see what the fuss was about and headed over to the toy aisle. All alone was one golden elmo. When I picked up the box it started to giggle and tell me how tickley it was in there. At that moment, my son grabbed the box and held on for dear life. So I though, find a price scanner, if it isn't too much I'll buy it. After my endless search to no avail, This lady comes running after me "MAAM, exuse me MAAM!!" I am only 29, so I KNOW she wasn't talking to me, then I hear "MAAM>>MAAM! Did you get that here", no dummy, I let my kid bring an unopened elmo in the store so he could play with the box, "yes, but I got the last one." her reply, " Do you want it? I have a daughter that wants one so badly?" ugg now you have graduated from dummy to , dumbass #*^%^*! Can you not see the kid holding the damn thing? "I think we will be buying it", her reply, "well if you decided not to, please come find me in the toy aisle, I will be hunting for another one" Sure I will, I've seen these things on ebay, I tell ya what, you give me $100 and I will let you buy it from me before you buy it from Walmart!

Then when I brought the thing home, the adults had more fun with it than my son did. If you have see what it does, you would understand
Here is what elmo does! TICKLE ME ELMO
