Random January Nonsense

Here’s some random goodness on this wonderful day!

I’m not ‘allowed’ to remove Christmas decorations until after my husbands birthday every year. It’s Christmas until at least Jan 8. This year, it was Christmas until Jan. 13th.

I have a nail polish addiction. I recently had to purchase a new storage place for my nail polish.

My sister-in-law is about to pop. She’s growing a human and that human is READY!

Baby tummy

I have read Fifty Shades of Grey – Twice! And… I am not ashamed. I like the story.

I have this ‘feel like a teenager’ crush on Ian Somerhalder. I wish I could meet him. He seems so extremely down to earth. Every time I try to meet him, it never works out. Wait…do I sound like a stalker??

I’m at work right now. I actually typed this particular line on Notepad so I wouldn’t forget it. : )

Emerald Simply natural Almonds are DELICIOUS!

I have a teenager at home and we watch a lot of teenage shows together. I love it!

I just ordered my self a new purse/bag. It’s a Dooney. My first. I don’t usually buy myself expensive brand name stuff….  ; ) hehehe

New Bag

I need to go to Target today (this line was written on Monday) for things like Shampoo, Conditioner, razors.. you know… hygiene necessities.

I made it to Target yesterday and got my “stuff”.

Today is Tuesday.

The teenager used to be a cute pudgy little thing who wanted me to scratch her back every night before she went to sleep.

Cutie

I love my family and never ever get to see them enough!

My husband got me this awesome FM transmitter thingy that plugs into the lighter outlet. I can plug my Ipod into it (most 2004’s don’t have an Ipod connection!) . I love it so much. I got to listen to all the best stuff on my way to work today.

That’s it for January I guess. Unless I get another random mood.

Let’s vote in a new Sad Clown

Clowns. A lot of people have a fear of clowns. I’m not afraid of them but I typically find them annoying and a little creepy as well.
There is a sad clown that’s quite a famous clown and you see pictures of him everywhere:

Do you recognize him? He’s like the billboard for a sad clown.

I think we should change the billboard sad clown to a new representative of sad clowns. I saw the clown that’s perfect for the job the other day. I like this sad clown way better:

What do you think? We could start a world-wide petition!

But who is she……?

My husband and I started this blog together and planned to both blog and keep you entertained. I’m sure he will still decided to post a story or two on here but I have become the primary blogger. I realized that the “About” section is vague and thought maybe you want to know a little about me.

I’m in my 30’s and it only bothers me a little. They say you are only as old as you feel…. I always feel a different age. Sometimes I feel like a teenager and act like one too, but other times I wonder how I get around in this old body. It depends on the day.

I actually work a full-time, Monday – Friday job. It’s an interesting job with interesting people. I am still learning new things after almost 6 years.

I am also a student, not full-time because that would be impossible. I wish I were Superwoman but I’m not. I’m working on my AA and I take online classes. Yay!! I have about a year left and then plan to work toward a Bachelor’s in the same way.

I’m not crazy about where I live. It’s hot, we have no seasons and never get snow. I’ve lived here my whole life and surrounded by family, yet I feel a strong pull toward another area of our map. Sigh..maybe someday.

I don’t have any biological children. I do have the teenager though, she’s my child. We’ve been together forever and the only thing that seems to be missing from our relationship is all that pesky blood and DNA. I’ve watched her grow and taken care of her through the years so she’s mine! Blood be damned!

I do want more children though, biological or not. I want another child. I can’t wait for another child in the house. It gets to a point that is hard to even explain. It almost hurts. It’s a difficult thing to “try” to have a baby. It’s painful and stressful for everyone. It’s a difficult road. I may blog about it someday soon.

I’m not very girly, but I do love pink. I rarely wear heels and have no dresses. I have some specific confidence issues and as of today, my hair is too long. I love animals and children and pasta is the best!

I LOVE chocolate but if given the choice, I’d choose a Jolly Rancher. I’m a couch potato a lot of the time and it appears as if my bottom is starting to pay the price. I love lip gloss and watermelon and even watermelon lip gloss.

I hate spiders, needles, vomit or vomiting! Ugh… three biggest fears right there! I hate most veggies, and meatloaf too. Football bores me and so does golf although I love to play Mario Golf!

It’s hard sometimes…

It’s hard sometimes to blog.
It’s hard sometimes to break into something new on your blog.
It’s hard sometimes to be personal with the world.
It’s hard to be personal when you know that people you know will be reading it.

But this is what I want to do. I want to turn this blog a little more personal.

I want to keep the comedic updates of cute babies, and animals happenings and my silly family, but I want to get a little dirty too.
I want to share how badly I want a baby and what that’s like.
I want to talk about certain things that drive me crazy – like when Matt leaves his empty Mellow Yellow can on the kitchen counter at least once every single day!
I want to blog about stresses and anxieties.
It’s hard to get started, but that’s what I want to do.

What do you think? Let me know!

Trips to Walmart

If you have been reading my blog for any certain amount of time, you should know by now that I blog about anything and everything and sometimes even nothing. Today’s post is just for fun!

I was looking through some old pictures for a project I am doing and I noticed multiple trips to walmart and even one to Ikea where we had maybe a little too much fun while there. Let the pictures speak for themselves…..

This last one was a fun trip to Ikea. Roomie is a major goof!

So honestly, how would you react to seeing any of these things take place? I would be thinking – peopleofwalmart.com but alas, these are MY people of Walmart so I didn’t send the photos. That’s cheating! We do have fun though!

Yes, today is a mindless silly post, but, it’s Tuesday and sometimes Tuesday can be more of a drag than Monday! Oh, and I’m tired. It’s hard to not be silly when you’re tired!

Keep reading and maybe next time I will be witty! I have something in mind! Like this post and make sure to follow us – we LOVE followers!

When there is nothing to blog about….

When there is nothing profound to blog about, what do you blog about?

Well one thing could be the fact that my 7 month old kitten Moo still tries to nurse. She nurses anything soft. She latches on and kneeds her little paws and sucks, leaving little wet spots behind. It’s quite cute actually but odd. She will do this for a long time and obviously no milk is coming out of a blanket, yet she continues to try.

 

Another thing is Matt’s skittle addiction. He’s been eating skittles like crazy. He recently discovered a huge bag of skittles and now everyone in the house is in on the addiction.

Skittles are delicious. I like to eat one of each color at one time. It is similar to tasting a rainbow. Yum!

One other random thought for the day would be – why are we more hungry on some days than others. I’m wondering this because I just had my breakfast and my stomach is still growling. This is the same amount of food I eat everyday! Usually it keeps me full untill lunch, but not today!! Why???? Can anyone explain this to me?

Do you have any random thoughts for today? What has been on your mind?

Those pesky butterflies

Don’t you just hate when you are waiting for something and waiting and waiting and those butterflies emerge from their cocoon in your stomach?

 

There is a feeling within your body, it’s somewhat like spinning or falling. It makes you take deep breaths, you can’t eat and you limbs are shaky. Yup, that’s the pesky butterflies.

I’m still deciding where they go after they take flight in our body. Eventually the waiting period is over and the butterflies disappear. I like to think they secretly flew out of my ears to begin their outside life.

This is my somewhat random thought for this wonderful Thursday. It’s only semi random as I have actually hatched butterflies in my stomach this morning and can currently feel them flying in circles waiting to be released.

Where do the butterflies go? Do you know the feeling? What was your latest butterfly experience and how many did you hatch? My number today is about 77, yes, 77 butterflies are in my midsection this morning!

Yup…that’s me!

The one who puts a five dollar bill in the snack machine because she forgot her lunch and is dying of hunger and thirst.

Yup….that’s me! The one who now has a 10 pound pocket of change to warn everyone she is coming.

Yup….that’s me! The one who now has a delicious snack and cold Dr. Pepper. Yum!

Now, you tell me…was it worth it? Have you ever been forced to do this?

What do you think about on 9/11?

I guess the common answer these days to that questions would be: The World Trade Center attacks, a loved one lost, America, New York and maybe even fears of a repeat attack of some kind.

My answer is a bit different. While I do think of most of those things on that day, I think mostly about my own lost loved one. She didn’t die on 9/11 but was born on 9/11. I think of her so much on this day. How old she would be, what would she have looked like, who would she have grown to be, how close would we be and how would my family and myself be different if she were still with us?

I have been thinking of her on this day for 23 years. Although my thoughts changed 19yrs ago when my first thought was that she would be 5 today. NOw, in 2011, she would be 23 years old. A grown woman in the world, my family and my friend. I miss her still, her hugs, her smiles, her little voice singing a song.

I was 12 years old when she died, I was an awkward kid trying to get through my days. My life was about school, friends, boys and hanging out. Death was a slap in the face, especially when it was such a tiny little person so close to my heart. It was hard for my 12yr old brain to grasp.

I remember very clearly coming home from school and seeing my mothers car in the driveway. (this was weird because she worked and didn’t get home until 7ish, was home after school with my dad) Both of my parents were in the bedroom talking in hushed tones so I filled a bowl with puffy Cheetos and sat at the table for my after school snack. I remember taking a bite of one of those Cheetos as my parents walked out to tell me about the car accident my Aunt was in with the babies on board. It was explained to me that my Aunt was very hurt as was my cousin. She was in a coma with no brain activity. I don’t remember the words or phrases they used, I only remember that cheeto still in my mouth and I had no idea what to do with it as it turned to mush.

The following days are still a blur. I only remember bits and pieces. I remember the wake and the open casket (I never should have looked) and I remember staring for so long that I thought she was breathing, I remember rumors flew at school in my absence that I slit my wrists, I remember how small my other cousins were and how much less they understood than I , I remember a Thanksgiving right after where my grandfathers voice cracked in saying the prayer (I had never seen or heard him cry before) and I remember how I changed as person.

These are all things I think about during the year but I think of everything on September 11th, the day of her birth. It’s still hard and I tear up every 9/11 but for different reasons than most of America.

We miss you and we love you Mikki!

Beautiful Girl!

Dear old Golden Rule Days….

Yes, that’s right….it’s school time again! It’s not just for the kids, but for me too and I am just miserable about it. I really don’t think I will enjoy this semester at all!
If you know me than you already know that I am, of course, good at everything.
If you do not know me, then guess what?? I am good at everything. (of course)
Well, everything except for math, and I can admit this because I feel that math is stupid and that it comes straight from Hell!

Numbers are just ugly.

Unless they are on a check that is made out to me!

I expect to be close to death by December because of this class.

I hope I make it through.

Anyone out there want to strengthen their relationship with Hell and take this class for me?

This is why you never take time off between High School and college. You end up in your thirties (I refuse to write the number version) taking Algebra!

Go to school kids, right away!!

Share this post and let’s all stand against numbers and only write them in letter form. (Ex – One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars!!)
