    I will be calling the doctor…

    Yesterday I had a major meltdown. On top of everything else going on, I caught a cold.  It’s one of the painful ones that feel like I have actually gargled with Drano.  I took some Dayquil and tried to go about the day like a normal person.  I swear, there is something in Dayquil that can actually make me hear things that don’t normally have sound.  I heard the tile on the floor say, “BLEACH ME!!!!”    At night I took the NyQuil and I had dreams that I had to remarry my ex-husband so he could get a better tax write-off. In between my days and nights of feeling like…

    Still Alive…

    My mom use to always say, “When it rains, it pours.”  Boy, she was NOT kidding. I’m doing my best to stay afloat and be the strong person I have been told I am. Right before I woke up from one of the thousands of nightmares that haunt my dreams I heard my mom say, “Everything happens for a reason, Kristine. Why is this one happening?” Of course, in my dream we were all moving back to Shingletown to live in my dad’s single wide mobile home…and by ALL of us, I mean my sister, her husband, my mom, my family, and about every single person I know that needs…

    Broken Stuff Portrait Friday What’s up everyone, Shaun here.  It’s been a crazy CRAZY week at the Random and Odd household, so unfortunately there’s no crazy pics from Kristine this week….and you’ve got me hosting.  Kristine’s huddled in the corner of our closet in the fetal position, babbling something about her laptop being sent back to HP for repairs.  I don’t know, all the weeping made it hard to understand.  I’m temporarily adopting SPF, so hopefully you enjoyed an easy week this week. This is basically the grown-up version of me writing her an excuse note for this week. So, for those of you troopers who played, your categories were:…

    my angel…

    Tree is up. Stockings are up. SOME presents under the tree. Home decorated. It’s getting there. Wish I could give you more, but I am physically and emotionally drained. Is this what people talk about when they say, ‘Holiday Depression’???? UP THE XANAX!

    Christmas Wishes…

    Yes, things are crazy here.  I want some stuff though. 1. I want to get my Christmas tree. 2. I want to decorate my house. 3. I want to put some presents under my tree. 4. I want to drive around the crazy decorated houses and say, ‘oooh, ahhh! look at that one!!’. I want my mommy. I want my sister. I want someone to clean my car. I want the dog to stop barking. I want the rain to stop. I want a fairy god mother to come ask me what I want so I can say, “Clean my room!”. I want … Fugetabout it.  What do you want?

    at what point do you say, “You’re fucking kidding me, right?”

    There is NO SPF this week, but we will make up for it NEXT week, m’kay? I know there really is NO way you can believe everything that happened today alone. 1. The most important; Jeremiah kissed me. Yes, I got my first kiss and he reached for ME. My heart has been melted and I am thinking about having babies again. 2. Tabitha is getting better. Her doctor helped her alot today…keep praying, she can feel the good vibes coming through. They found a bone spur from one of the numerous blows to her head, but it’s going to be alright. 3. Dan has a date for his Christmas…

    I hate UPDATE posts, but sometimes you gotta just let it go…

    Thank you all for your concern for Shaun’s ex. I let her know she has lots of people wishing her well. As for the questions: 1. The three punks that pulled her from the car and beat her over the head in the face with guns were not caught. They insisted on ‘taking her ride’ and money…but neither idiot could drive a stick so they had to leave it.  The battery was removed so just in case they found someone to drive it, it still wouldn’t start.  We then picked up the car and it’s safely parked in front of my house. 2. Jeremiah is Shaun’s ex-wives’ 9 month old…

    life changing…

    Shaun’s ex was robbed and assaulted at gunpoint at her apartment on Friday night. She was beat with the butt of the pistol on her head.  She’s still alive, but pretty bruised up and emotionally and physically in pain. Shaun and I picked her up from the ER on Saturday morning around 1 am and brought her back to our house and she’s staying here until she gets better and decides what to do.  We also have baby J here with us. Shaun is in all his glory with ‘little man’.  Our Flickr site will be filled with pictures  of him while he’s here. My posts will be short as…

    Hey everyone. Shaun here. Kristine’s laptopless, and still a little disoriented. I still remember how to use these old-fashioned computer things that plug into the wall, so I have temporary SPF custody. Pray she regains laptopness before I choose next week’s SPF categories. Until then……. Something that makes you go ‘hmmmmmm’ (insert your own joke here)…..yes, I make her go ‘hmmmm’ quite often AND I look like I’m saying ‘hmmmm’ in this picture. So its like a double point photo. I believe I was contemplating the exit strategy for the American forces in the Middle East when this picture was taken. OR I was watching Spongebob. One or the other.…
