    Have you ever…

    Here’s a totally hypothetical situation. I am going to change the wording around a little bit because just in case someone is reading this and doesn’t believe me when I say ‘hypothetical’.  Really, who believes someone when they say, “hypothetically”. See, right there, I tossed that word into the ” ” because I either don’t believe the word is actually a word or it’s just a word that is being loosely used.   The fact that word, ‘totally’ is thrown in front of the word hypothetical is almost like trying to convince your mother that you didn’t skip school, all the while your face is twitching and your sweating buckets. So,…

    Auto Update…

    Along with Tivo, I wish life had a pause, rewind and fast forward option. I didn’t watch Click because I don’t want to ruin the image of the perfect world I have in my head. Well, along with the beforementioned options, I would like to add: Auto Update. When things are getting old. Auto Update. I want to wake up and have my house look like it was raped by Ikea.  My attempts at making my world a little cooler to look at— end in failure.  I have found that the Ikea look isn’t something that can be done in phases. If you get one thing, GET THEM ALL because…

    box it up or donate it. It has GOT TO GO.

    I’ve sort of been on this, ‘throw away everything you have ever owned’ kick lately.  It started with 80% of the content in my garage.   I couldn’t be happier.  Well, that’s just a stupid statement, OF COURSE I COULD BE HAPPIER. I’m just really glad that the crap that was attracting mice is now out of my garage.  I’m glad the stuff that I have been holding on for other people is out of my garage. Well, a majority of it anyway.  I’m going to give him ONE more warning about it and if it’s not out, I take 1% of the baby pictures he has in 4 storage bins…

    Today…

    I wish they had realistic horoscopes. Today mine would read, “Just go on ahead and sream FUCK! at the top of your lungs. You’re going to need it to get throughout the day. In fact…spend the first 3 hours of your day just doing that.”

    I said, “Howdy”. He said, “Hi”

    On the way home from Ryan’s 18th birthday-we-missed-lunch-lets-have-coffee-and-give-you-cards-and-hugs meeting, I was listening to my new Nano (Ipod pay it forward post coming on Tuesday) and Beastie Boys came on. Dan wasn’t singing along with me, Kara, Alyx and Shea. “Dad didn’t get on the Beastie Boys bandwagon in the 80’s.” I announce. “I hate the Beastie Boys.” he admits. Years of marriage and I did not know this about the man. Of course, it wasn’t until I got one of his social security letters a few years ago that I found out his name wasn’t Daniel….but Danny.   But MUSICALLY, I know the man.  I didn’t know he was a hater…

    Hello Lame Day!!

    We all hate it, but just roll with it this year people.  It’s 2009….switch it up. If you didn’t celebrate before (like me) just go out and do it…it’s sort of fun. The kids loved their stuff!! Tonight I’m taking my husband and friend, Megan out to dinner and then to see Friday the 13th. Then on actual VD, I’m going to sacrifice my mental health and go to Chuckie Cheese with my friend, Ruka so she doesn’t have to be alone. GOD, I am such a good friend. :)

    To say, ‘we have some stuff going on…’ would be a massive understatment…

    I realize it’s been forever since I have posted a damn thing about anything with someone in this house… Funny things have happened here, but I’m still trying to get a grasp on how to deal with all the stuff that is going to be able to fully be able to laugh at stuff. I had to stop the Chantix. I’m not exactly sure is one of the side effects was causing this uncomfortable problem, but I wasn’t taking any chances.   I did notice that the taste of cigs did get a 1% less appealing, but other than that, 2 weeks of it didn’t work.  I realized that i’m not…

    Chantix — Take 2

    I’m now on the 7th day of Chantix, the quitting smoking pill.  The first couple of days were odd because I was so tired I couldn’t keep my eyes open.  I felt the mood swings, but they weren’t enough to want me to drown anyone in the toilet, so I figured everyone was safe. Somewhere around day 2 or 3, I got Dan’s flu. I knew it would come with a cough, but because I had been chain smoking in fear of never wanting another cigarette, my cough was a doozy. Every thing has been smooth sailing and I even forgotten the side effects.  On Friday night I had a…

    Little Red Birds

    Isn’t she freakin’ cute?  I got to spend an hour with her and her mom and dad yesterday while we did her 6 month shoot. I swear, it’s a good thing I can’t have babies anymore.  Well, I could, but I would have some explaining to Shaun if I did. Today is Superbowl Sunday.  It’s a day of lounging on the couch and stuffing your face full of greasy food and yelling at the TV.  Okay, that is pretty much every night at our house. I grew up to hate the Steelers because my aunt and uncle loved them and what fun was football if there wasn’t a rivalry between…
