Some Bloggers Have It All

It's no secret, I LOVE to win things. It doesn't matter if it's money, jewelry, gift cards, a pat on the back, or a blogging award. I think I hold deep rooted issues from that frightful night at the 3rd grade carnival where I didn't wear the beautiful 4 foot unicorn. Yes, it's true. I lost it to the little girl with big blue eyes and blond curly hair. Of course she won, her parents bought 25 raffle tickets. Well guess what wanna be Cindy Brady? It's my time to shine.

Here is my award. I have none other to thank but the wonderful Ms.Chased by Children. Have you ever read her blog? She has to be one of the funniest woman I have ever met. Ask her someday about how her and her mom waiting for us at Abuelo's for over an hour! Still makes me laugh when I think about it.

Now, who will be the lucky women to have this passed on to........

drum roll please.........

And the winners are Mimi's Toes and Rip, Runnin, and Roarin.

  • Mimi's Toes. Have you ever met her? It's a shame if you haven't. She's a Grandma that carries a Barbie lunch box to work. She's hilarious, she's got class, and her toes are beautiful.

  • Rip, Runnin, and Roarin. This woman deserves it. She was in a Circus for crying out loud. How many of you can say that?!?!?!?!?

Me Vs. The Raging Hormone

I am exhausted. I've had my little brother for the last couple of days and I have him until next Sunday. The parents are on a cruise. Thanks guys for leaving me in the middle of the cold with a raging hormoned 13 year old boy that doesn't want to ever sleep........or do homework. And mom, you pick up after him ALL the time? Because he has to be the messiest thing I've ever seen.

Thank goodness for the Tiger this weekend. He bonded much better with Raging Hormone boy better than I did this weekend. Their bonding? Well, over computer games, Civil War books, football, and my home cooking of course!

A conversation the boy and I had this weekend.

Raging Hormone: Whatcha cooking sister?

Me: Pot Roast.

Raging Hormone: You can cook?

Me: Um, yeah. How do you think my family gets fed?

Raging Hormone: Just figured you had pizza delivery on speed dial or something.

Me: Thanks for the vote of confidence.

Raging Hormone: Well mom said you never cooked when you lived with us.

Me: Maybe that's because I was 16 and didn't need to cook. She did!

Raging Hormone: So, this won't kill me right?

Me: Shut up and get some plates out.

By the way, the pot roast didn't kill him and he even complimented my eggs the next day :) Getting him to write his English paper was a whole seperate task. Mom, please come home soon and claim this alien from my house............please!

A meme!

Oh the girl who oddly believes she has crooked eyebrows has tagged me with a meme! What she doesn't know, is that her eyebrows are perfect and I long to rip them off her head and put them on my face. Wow, I'm not pyscho. I promise.

So here it goes ladies. 5 interesting things about me!!

1. When I was a toddler, I used to eat worms and scabs. I used to go in the back yard at my baby sitter's house and dig up her garden so that I could find worms. The scab thing? I don't know. I was clumsy and fell a lot. Yes, I ate the scabs. Therefore, my knees and legs are nothing but scars, scars, scars because my cuts didn't heal properly. Still want to be my friend after reading #1?? Just be glad you weren't the people that raised me.

2. I am left handed and virtually retarded if I try and use my right hand for anything. It's like dead weight on me. I write crooked, I have problems doing my hair, and I can't even cut a straight line. I blame it all on being left handed.

3. I had to go to speech class as a child because I couldn't pronounce my R sounds or the -OOL sounds. After years of spech, I can say "The red rabbit ran away from rain" just fine. But listen closely when I say school, cool, fool, or pool. It's not normal. Missy and the Tiger make fun of me all the time. They always say, "She's coo-el for schoo-el" to me.

4. I am a closet Cowboys fan. Please don't ever tell the Tiger this one. Thank goodness he never pulls up my blog! He'd probably die of a heart attack if he knew secretly I was cheering for the Cowboys and not the Bears. I can't help it. I have Tony Romo and Terrel Owens fever. I'm predicting the Cowboys to win the Superbowl this year. You heard it here first. Remember that.

5. I have always wanted to go to Canada. Honestly, there is no particular reason for this but it's soemthing I've wanted to do for years and years. But I've been to Mexico and I feel that I should some day go north and see what our neighbors up there are like. And every time I hear the word Canada I always think of the South Park Movie when they say, "Canadaians are a bunch of flapheads." I don't know what the heck that means, but it cracks me up with all the south park people and their heads falling off. So yeah, someone send me to Canada please.

And there you have meme. It's amazing what you tell your blogging friends. I am wondering if I'll lose a few after the scab and worm comment. Hahahaahha. I'm all grown up now. I promise I only eat food!

HA! And now the tagging shall begin. Annie, Sheryl, and Tracy.......... I want to know 5 interesting things about you! Try and beat the scab thing. I dare you.

For those of you that don't have a clue what I am talking about........I got accepted into the Nursing Program for 2008! I've been on pins and needles for months now. Playing the waiting game is NOT fun.

Either way, all my prayers have been answered. Honestly, I deserve this! Does that sound conceited? I am not sure........but I have been busting my butt for two years to do everything right to get into the program. I've gotten the grades, I've passed my test........and I got in!

So I start in Jan 2008 and will end in Dec 2009. It's gonna be hard and I will probably hate every minute of trying to run a household and being in the program. But the outcome with be beautiful and I'll have a college degree!

Hey Donut, plan on me picking your health care brain a lot over the next couple of years!

Sleepy Thoughts On A Dreary Day

As I sit and ponder my morning, here are some thoughts on the brain.

  • My new carpet comes tomorrow! Cannot wait. We tore apart two bedrooms at once, yes all at once because we are crazy and have been living in the living room (or would it be front room) for 2, maybe 3 weeks now. Tomorrow night I can't wait to get back in my bedroom! Pictures up by the weekend.
  • Do you call it a living room or front room? What's the difference between both? Everything is just a living room to me!
  • How I despise my boss. She was ok yesterday. However, she got cc'd on an email that was sent to me and felt she needed to reply before me! Then botched up the email. Honey, if you don't know what you are not pretend. Let the professionals take care of it.
  • By the way, today is Boss's Day! Will I even utter those words to my boss? OH HECK NO. I wouldn't give her the satisfaction.
  • I need my nails done - badly.
  • I need to do laundry. We must have a lot of clothes because our butts are still covered in clean clothes, yet my basement looks like a tornado hit it.
  • I now know what exactly co-sleeping is thanks to Jenn from All Natural Mommies. I guess maybe I always knew, but didn't really there was a name associated with it. I just remember having Missy, everyone told me not to let her sleep with me because she will be too attached. Hmmmmmmm, but looking at other mommies maybe I would've done it differently had I of known it was ok.
  • Tonight I must finish up the trim before the carpet guy comes in the morning.
  • Oooooooooooooh, tonight is The Biggest Loser. My favoritest show! And yes, my friends.....I just used the word favorist.

Dear Boss From Hell

Dear Boss From Hell,

Hey you! I would really like to thank you for ruining my day. Let me start by saying this......I do not like you and your evil ways. I've been at this company for 9 years. You've been here for what? A minute? Ok, 4 months. Oooooooooh, look at you with your big six figure salary, your nice condo on the lake, and your no children having self! Aren't we big and mighty?

Today you were not nice to me. I was written up today. Seriously? Seriously!? SERIOUSLY?!?!?!? Are you freaking kidding me? Are we 5 or what? And you wrote me up because I made 3 PERSONAL PHONE CALLS FROM MY DESK? Last time I checked, employees were allowed to use the phone whenever they wanted. And if that rule changed, aren't you supposed to let a person know before writing them up? I've worked in HR for 9 years and NEVER have seen such a thing.

Now I KNOW you do not like me because I am the single mom in the department and only work 4 days a week. But is that really a reason to run me out? There's laws lady. Laws you are not following.

And one more thing honey. I am out of here at the end of the year. Oh yeah, I've got a demanding job and I planned on giving you two months notice. Guess what sugar? You get two weeks now. Oh yeah..........and when I leave it will be time for W2's, salary changes, benefit open enrollment, and bonuses. How will you ever figure that out for yourself? HA! Should've thought about that before you tried to screw seasoned employees. It's on now honey.........

Yours Truly,

The Single Mom That Makes Your Skin Crawl Because I Love My Daughter More Than Your Stupid Job

Wordless Wednesday - Snip Snip

Apparently Missy decided that she no longer wanted bangs, so instead of growing them out she gave her own face lift, much to my surpise.........

And the worst part is that she thinks it looks great!

A case of the Mondays

Oh, as I hang my head in left over alcohol-ness from the long weekend......I've sure got a case of the Mondays. I'm crabby, I'm wishing I was retired and living on a beach somewhere. Mmmmm........a beach would be nice right now. Real nice.

I loved this weekend. The bloggy meet up was great. Go to Crooked Eyebrow's page and to Beth's page for the pictures. However, Beth doesn't have any pics of me so they won't be near as enjoyable as Crooked Eyebrow's!!!!! hahahahaha..........Ok, OK, OK it's my fault. I left to go see a stripper! And it turns out I missed the FLAN! No one told me there was going to be flan! You all hid it from me on purpose I bet!!!!

After the bloggy meet up, I went to a batchlorette party. Oh the stories I could tell. But, I probably shouldn't! hahahaha..........

So I sit here on Monday, at work, staring at papers to be filed. Oh Filing Goddess, where are you?

I'll leave you with this picture for the day. Why? Because every time I look at it, I think, "QUIT STARING AT ME PENGUIN!"

Welcome Baby Nathan!

Everyone I know is having a baby besides me I think....! This girl is starting to get baby fever!

*Welcome to the world Baby Nathan Daniel. He was born on 10/02/07. Mommy and him are doing well. Unfortunately, daddy was not there because he is off fighting the senseless war in Iraq. Daddy is Tiger's that makes me kinda a new aunt? Awwwwww, Aunt Jenni. I love it. As I was saying, Daddy is in Iraq but was able to be on the phone the entire time that Mom was in labor. Next best thing right? He won't be back until March, but for now pics will be cherished.*

Baby Nathan.......

Missy and More

So the Tiger has a cold. I've been doing my best to stay away so that I don't catch it. Kind of hard when you sleep next to someone every night as they cough their way through sleep.

Now Missy has gotten the cold. It's a light one and I'm doing my best to keep it from getting worse..........

However, yesterday when we were on our way to cheerleading, she sneezed. I blessed her and she goes, "Mommy, do you suppose it's just allergies?"

Um, huh? Where do kids pick this stuff up from?
