The Fonz

I have the coolest mom in the blogosphere.

    Happy Birthday to Mom the Fonz….

    I wanted to spend the day with her.  To be able to get one of her most awesomest hugs. To see her blow out her candles. There are things going on at Random and Odd that will not allow me to be there, and I know she understands and hopes she can forgive me for not being there. If anyone knows anything about cleaning out the proverbial house, it’s my mom.  She is an example of how people can go from good to bad to good to bad to good to bad to good again.  She is the finest example of people who have come so far with so little. …

    because you asked…

    On occasion I get an email saying how much people love the relationship that my mom, sister and I have.   Sometimes people say, “I wish I could hang out with you guys…I bet it would be fun.” I have been trying to locate CD’s that I have misplaced (kids stole) and I ran across 2  (ones I stole from my sister) the title is my mother’s handwriting that says; ‘Copy of Kathy’s funky CD’. If my sister made a CD it’s going to be rockin’ so I grabbed it as I headed out of the house.  The first song, “Bad Mama Jamma” (of course) and I instantly was in a…

    She makes me laugh…

    My mom left a note on this picture:  “It looks like what I carry in my pocket” Sad, but true. You know how when you’re sick you pick up on things that you would normally dismiss?  I had a moment on the phone and I had to scribble it down on the back of the Tums bottle for when I felt better. My mother pronounces each day of the week like this; Monday. Tuesday. Wednesday. THURS-DEE. Friday. Saturday. Sunday. Thurs-dee. Hmm.

    my wish…

    If I could do it again, I would spend those quiet moments in bed with mom watching movies instead being on the phone with my ubber dumb ass boyfriend fighting about if his friends are better than my friends. Right now…all I want more than anything is to climb into bed with my mommy and watch some made for TV show. God, I hate days when you just wish you would have never moved out of you house as a teenager.

    Me, My mother, her mother and her mother before her…I’m certain.

    25 REASONS I OWE MY MOTHER FOR MY EDUCATION 1. My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE . “If you’re going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning.” 2. My mother taught me RELIGION. “You better pray that will come out of the carpet.” 3. My mother taught me about TIME TRAVEL . “If you don’t straighten up, I’m going to knock you into the middle of next week!” 4. My mother taught me LOGIC. ” Because I said so, that’s why.” 5. My mother taught me MORE LOGIC. “If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you’re not going…

    and then a hero comes along.

    This week Stuff Portrait Friday is Hero.  I had several days to think on it and as the hours came down to minutes, I realized that if you have been reading this blog for anytime, you know who my heroes are. 1. My Mother: You know that saying, “you’ve come a long way,baby.”? I’m pretty sure that was made up for her. Her road isn’t a road I would wish on anyone.  I wish over and over she could see how proud of her that I am. To see her at rock bottom and not only pull herself up, but bring those around up with her is awesome. 2. My…

    At What Point?

    My mother is doing good.  She didn’t have a stroke, but they were worried that she had.  They ran some tests and sent her home after she checked out fine. It didn’t stop me from driving up there so I could run my fingers through her hair and cuddle with her. Today we talked on the phone and she said, “I need to get better so we can do more stuff.”  I agreed. WE need to get better so we can get back to doing our ‘Mother, Daughter & Daughter’ things we use to do. Awhile back I had a conversation with my mom about ‘owning’ what belongs to us. …

    RESET!

    FINALLY! I finally got up to mom and Kath’s house to visit. It was, as Kathy calls it “WAY TOO SHORT”, and I need to go back and spend like 2 months to catch up. I didn’t plan on getting my hair done, but after seeing Kara’s hair when Kathy finished it…I begged her to do mine.  So, it no longer looks like it does in this picture. Kathy came in a few minutes after the pictures were taken and waved this magic wand over my head and magic happened and I am much less war-torn looking and more “Bow Chicka Bow Bow”. Kathy’s husband, Kevin was in the garage…

    Cleaning and Sleeping

    After the cleaning and organizing of the kitchen I was exhausted. Instead of being thrilled for having accomplished so much, I felt anxious that someone was going to mess it up. I went on patrol every hour on the hour and like a bullhorn would announce, “WHO LEFT THE PLATE ON THE TABLE!?” The next morning I spent the day in my closet, looking for the floor and the source of the ants that have decided to hide out in there. Gay ants, hiding in my closet. I don’t have the heart to spray them. They are probably just trying to figure out how to get me to dress like…
