Oh Holy Hell

Today I am one unhappy bitch. My "darling" little children decided to get up at 5:30 this morning. This is after Steven got up at 2:00 and I did not fall asleep until after midnight and had to make a potty break at about 4:00. I am one tired broad. Anyone want to babysit? We better not have any naughtiness today.

I made an appointment this morning to get an orthopedic referral so I can have my bunions removed. Does this hurt? How long will I have to stay off my feet? How much leave will Clint have to take? Should I fly a relative here to help. Oh god, is it major surgery? Do they put me completely under? I suppose I will be busy surfing the net for answers today.

My step sisters are coming to visit. WHoo hoo. I can't wait to see them and I can't wait to go see a movie. I am sure they are completely aware of the fact that they will babysit a few times for Clint and I. This means we will get to see Star Wars!!!!! Goodie Goodie!!! I bet we will get to have dinner and see a movie. Don't get me wrong, that is not the only reason I want the girls to come, I really am looking forward to seeing them. A movie people. A movie!

Remember

One of the things our GREAT NATION defends is each person's right to express their opinions. MANY men and women have paid the ultimate sacrifice for each of us to live our lives as we see fit. We have the freedom to speak out against our government, we have the freedom to protest in the streets, and we have the freedom to live!! Today is a day when we should all remember. Remember ALL those who made these freedoms possible. Remember those who have given their lives for US. Remember those families who have lost their brave soldiers. Remember those who are,today, defending those freedoms. Remember those families who are missing their loved ones as they defend those freedoms.

Last night on Fox News, Charlie Daniels expressed his views. He did not condemn those who were against the war, but he did say, this was the time to unite as a nation. Support your country. The more you protest, the more power you give the enemy. Those of you who are against the war must know that your protests will not bring the troops home. It will not stop us from freeing the Iraqi people from tyranny. Show support. When the job is done and our men and women are home, then place blame. Then, speak out and make whomever you feel is to blame defend their actions.

Our military services are all volunteers. These men and women have volunteered to serve YOU. They are defending OUR freedoms. They are standing up to tyranny. These men and women are just as honorable as those who have served before them. They sacrifice just as much as those who have served before them. They are our mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, and so on. When you go to sleep at night, remember, these men and women are the ones who make your day to day life possible. They live without their families for long, extended periods of time, so you CAN enjoy this great country. You can be a Democrat, a Republican, a conservative, a liberal. You can be whatever you want to be and express your opinions because these men and women CHOOSE to defend YOU!!!!

Please remember all those who have died defending your freedoms and the freedoms of others. Thank them!!! Where would we be if these HEROES were not defending our freedoms? Remember! You do not have to support the war, but you do have to appreciate those who allow you that freedom!! Let us use today as a starting point to unite as a country. Let us wait until our men and women are home to assign blame. Let us unite on this day and support our men and women. Let us unite on this and decide to not empower the insurgents. Let us unite today and not make our brave men and women, who CHOOSE to defend our freedoms, the enemy. Let us unite today and remember ALL those who have passed serving our great country. I humbly offer my gratitude to each of those and their families who have and are CHOOSING to defend my freedoms. Thank you for your service, your sacrifice, and you bravery. YOU are what makes this nation great. You are why I am able to get up each morning and play with my children. You are why I am able to sit here and write my thoughts. I will never be able to repay the debt to all those who have given me so many rights and freedoms. All I can do is thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you!

These are just some of the blogs I read. They are both servers and supporters. Please take the time to go and Thank them today. Thank them for serving. Thank them for supporting those that serve. Thank them for their sacrifices. It is not just the men and women who leave we should thank, but also those who stay behind and support those who leave. Those who stay behind and serve. Each and every one of them play an important role. Thank you.

I need a new computer.

It's the weekend. It's a 4 day weekend. What does that mean? It means I have to share this damn computer with Clint. I suppose the upside is that he finally made a few new posts. The downside? He is messing with a woman and her addiction. How the hell I am supposed to spend my day reading this, this, this, this, or this? I do get to spend time playing with my lovely (dripping with sarcasm) children. With the constant supervision does not offer up very many funny stories.

My husband also discovered . He left a comment on this blog. He thought she and I had a lot in common. Could it be the talk of poop, boogers, or the foul language? I never would openly discuss such disgusting things (I say that as I release a bit of chemical warfare from my ass).

What My Husband Loves About The Zoo

We are a family that appreciates the grosser things in life (I don't think that is proper grammar...Oh well). The gorilla at the zoo had us mesmerized. He was throwing up in his hands and then eating it. He just did this over and over again. Luckily for all who pass through, You get to join in our amazement.

"I will not give you sex"

Last night, Clint and I get into bed for the usual cuddle, surf and then snooze session. As I am getting into the perfect "head resting on chest" postion, he says "I will not give you sex". I looked at him and just busted out laughing. He then says he means it and do not ask again. What do you think, should he start a career in psychology? He was really trying to work that reverse psychology business on me. He even used the "I have already put out this month". I thought I was going to wet the bed I was laughing so hard. I guess the decline in my libido is strating to take its toll. the poor man is getting desperate. I guess I better start "putting out" a little more often. Next thing I know he will want to get a pet goat. *Oh god stop it...laughing hysterically...I crack myself up...thank god someone finds me amusing*

 

Shoeless HIllbillies

I was visiting Merritt this morning and was so excited to learn that I am not the only girl running around shoeless (Merritt is gorgeous and doesn't wear shoes?...). Anyways, I decided to have a little fun and show my shoeless feet (Merritt did it...).

Afterthought: I will take pictures of just about anything. I think I have issues. Oh well. WHO THE HELL CARES!!!!

Please Look!

I know I am no good at dicussing politics, but for all of you who wonder....
Do you think these pictures were staged as part of the U.S propaganda machine? Do you really?!?!?! This is what our soldiers are seeing. This is what they are faced with. They are over there liberating and protecting the new found freedoms of the Iraqi poeple. THIS IS WHAT THEY ARE UP AGAINST! Are you sure you are being told the truth by the media?!?! ARE YOU SURE!?!?!

ALL I ASK IS FOR YOU TO CONSIDER THERE MAYBE ANOTHER TRUTH!

Thanks JackArmy for pointing this site out.

I also think this is very important. If you support our troops, please check this out. I do not think you even have to be "for the war" to support this cause. We all want the same thing. THE TRUTH!!!

Thanks to Rhianna for bringing this to our attention.

 

WHAT DID YOU SAY!?!?!

My lovely (full of sarcasm) children were so well behaved this morning. Then IT happened. They were sitting at the table eating lunch and I was talking to Clint in the kitchen. That is when IT happened. I thought I was hearing things, so I Continued on with my conversation. Then IT happened again. I decided to ignore IT. I did not want to draw attention to IT. I am just hoping IT won't happen again. If IT happens again, my child may get the ass beating of a lifetime. What could IT be? My little Steven was heard saying, "SHUT-UP MOMMA". Oh my god!!! I do not think Clint heard it over my babbling, but make no mistake, IT was said. If IT is said again...HOLY SHIT...HOLD ME BACK.

 

Wednesday's Wonder Blog

Today I would like to tell you about The Conservative Legion. This young guy is a very well spoken, young, conservative. He will not only draw your attention to some of the current issues, but he has quite a delightful sense of humor. I definently recommend everyone check out his site. A few examples of his wonderful sense of humor can be seen here, here, and here. I suggest you also take the time to go back through his archives. Ya'll have missed some pretty good stuff.

Do you like the memes?

I was tagged by Rhianna over at A Texan Abroad. I can't decide if I like these or not. I really LOVE talking about poop (I am so gross).
1) Total number of films I own on DVD/video:
I think we might have ten dvds. We are so cheap. We really do not buy movies. We are more into paying off debt.

2) The last film I bought:
I think the last movie we bought was "What's The Name Of That Song", A Sesame Street movie.

3) The last film I watched:
I think the last movie we watched was "Ocean's Twelve".

4) Five films that I watch a lot or that mean a lot to me (in no particular order):
Mommy Dearest, Step-Mom, Parenthood, and What's the name of that song (The kids really learned their abcs from that movie. Oh, I love Napoleon Dynamite also. My husband does the best imitations.

5) Tag 5 people and have them put this in their journal:
I think I will tag Stephen, Amy, Marsha, Tammy, and ArmyWife.

Update: I have also been tagged by Jenny (all because I love to see everybody. Meanie Meanie Jelly Beanie... heehee). I have done this one and you may see it here.

No Nuts For You

Clint got home form work, changed his clothes, and and eased himself into the recliner with a can of cashews for a little relaxation time.(I have no doubt that was a run-on sentence. Who flippin' cares. The story is still funny.) Not long after, Emily came downstairs with a grand announcement. She had shit in her panties (my words, not hers). I was shocked. I cleaned her up and explained how utterly disgusting it is to poopoo in panties. She then saw the NUTS. As most two year olds (and dogs) do, she stared at Daddy, hoping to receive a beloved nut. At that point I exclaimed "Emily, quit looking at Daddy's nuts. They are not for you." It was already coming out of my mouth when I realized how awful it sounded. Clint and I could not stop laughing. Another thing I never thought I would hear myself say.

One more poop story and then I am done. It has been a funny poop day (seems like I have those a lot doesn't it).

Steven came to me and said "Mommy, Ethan has crap". To which I responded "WHAT?" His response? "Ethan has poopoo Mommy. He went Crap!" Ah, "Kids Say The Darndest Things"!!!

 

Hot Hubby

Here are the old school pictures of Clint as promised. Here he is at our wedding shower (at my sweet,sweet friend Becky's house) holding my nieces Missy and Meredith. This was not long after we found out he had "knocked me up". Just so you know, "pull out" DOESN'T WORK!!! DAMN!!! He is HOT!!
Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Here we are before he impregnated me. This is our first "family photo". The sweet cocker is my darling dog Tanner. We did not bring him to Colorado with us. We just do not have room in the car for Three carseats, all our stuff, and a dog. Luckily, My Dad is keeping him in San Antonio. I KNOW they will give him lots of love. I sure do miss having a pet though. I am getting so desperate, I would be happy with a Beta Fish at this point.

I swear this is it for today!!!

Now, I know I have told you this before, but I am cheap. I always try to use coupons, I am always looking at the ads, and I love stuff on sale. Well, today I went to wal-mart and grocery shopped (usually go to commisary). I saved some bucks baby. I am the shopping shit. All must now bow to the grocery shopping goddess. The best part of the deal is I LOVE grocery shopping (I am sick people). My favorite buy you ask? Well, they had these big bags (BIG BAGS) of popped popcorn for a dollar. A DOLLAR. My little darlings love popcorn and since they are so little, they do not know the differenc between fresh and old (is it evil to take advantage of them like that?). They had popcorn for snack when we got home and you can't even tell a dent has been made in the bag. Do you know how many snacks that is going to be good for? FOR A FRIGGIN' DOLLAR!!!!!!!

So, if all you smokers would like to join me for the "I am back on the wagon" cigerette, please let me know. I suck!!!!! I guess I will try again someday. Just not today.

I just discovered my husbands sister-in-law (is that too many hyphens? is that how you spell hyphen? shit!!) Melissa has been visiting my littl eplace here. Everyone welcome Melissa. Maybe she will e-mail me some recent photos.

 

Hubby hard at work

Clint sooooo did not want me to post this picture. Bwahahahahaha. Here he is in all his white, white glory. I remember when we met, Talk about a golden god. Whew Wee Baby Hot stuff. Not that he isn't hot now. I tell you what, I will post some old school photos tomorrow. You will see what the fuss is all about. He was building me some new little shelves to hang on the wall. Hot and Handy!!! NANEE NANEE BOO BOO!!! My husband is better than yours.

 

ME AND EMILY

Emily and I had a wonderful time together this afternoon taking pictures of ourselves. She LOVES the camera.

Damn, I am starting to look so old and what is with that eye? I swear I do not have a lazy eye. Just some red skin from being outside too much. Yuck!!!

Sleepy Head

Remember the "Pet Fair" on Saturday? Ethan found it to be rather boring.

I love when they sleep. They look so sweet. Oh, how they fool me!!

IT'S SATURDAY!

Happy Saturday.
This morning, we took the kids to the "Pet Fair" here on post. They loved seeing all the cats and dogs. Clint had to cover it for the paper, so why not take the kids. I love to watch him work anyways. This is where it will probably get mushy. If you do not care for sweets, I recommend you move on. My husband makes me so proud. He is finishing his bachelors degree, while working a full time job, and being a GREAT dad. My husband helps with every bit of houeswork and child rearing when he is home. I am a very lucky woman. Got a cavity yet?


I just had a funny thought (well, funny to me). I used to tease my friend (The one I told you isn't speaking to me anymore) Hope about how she called all the grownups Mr. this and Miss That. Guess what I say ALL the time. I will again open mouth and insert foot. So many things I swore I wouldn't do or seemed silly to me, I now do with my kids. Everyday it seems I eat the words I spoke before I had my own children. Does this happen to everyone. Does everyone have an ideal way to handle their own children and then when they come, does this ideal change?

Self Portrait Friday

Here I am in all my Glory (do you smell something?) . I just got home from having blood taken. I had to give them some blood so they could be sure the "crazy lady meds" are not killing my liver. As you will be able to tell, my first priority when I got home was to post my beautiful pictures (boy is it getting deep in here). I could not decide on which picture to post, so here they are (remember, no lynching...do not view this link unless your sense of humor borders on the sick, like mine). I know they are not the most attractive,(what? I do not look like Angelina Jolie?) but I figure I should always show the real me.

Disturbing...yet Funny!

What will you be getting your kids to keep them occupied during the summer months?
Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Wow, see what surfing the net finds. The kid that is going to be kicking my kids' asses.
Image hosted by Photobucket.com

 

Oh NO!!! MommaK tag me!

I am going to fill this out and then go Toture MommaK. I am horrible at these things.


1. If you could kill any celebrity by beating them with a book you own, which celebrity and book would it be?
I suppose I would beat up Brittany Spears with a Dr. Phil book. I do not own a Dr. Phil book yet. I am addicted to his show and Don't own a book. How sad. Anyways, I watched the first episode of her show, talk a bout a piece of shit. She just made her self look even worse than she a;ready has. She is trying way to hard to keep up with Jessica Simpson. Man, I know way to much about that crap.

2. When you have sex, is there a certain TV show you like to sync the sex up with so that as you finish, the show begins? No, but I cannot do it during CSI or I get sidetracked.

3. Is there a blog out there that you absolutely hate but are kind of afraid to say something on your own blog for fear that they'll read it and come to kill you? If so, please share it with me.
I have seen some really bad blogs during my blog surfing excursions, but I never thought to keep track. This site does a pretty good job at pointing out some bad ones.

4. Finish this sentence: If one more person asks me to pass on a meme, I'm going to...
Do it, for fear of some sort of blog massive rejection.
-------------------------------------------------
1. Total volume of music files on my computer?
I have no idea. I do not even know how to figure that out. I am too cheap to pay to download and too scared too download for free. What a dipshit unh?

2. The last CD I bought was?
I couldn't even tell you. I have not bought a cd in probably three or four years. I am a TV kindof girl. I get all my music knowledge from the music TV stations.

3. Song playing right now:
"Blue Clues" Lucky me right!?!

4. Five songs I listen to a lot or that mean a lot to me (in no particular order):
A."Remember When" Allan Jackson B.some song by Puddle of Mudd (I know, what a loser. I can't think of the title) It is the one where they something about spanking some ass. heehee C.That song "Complicated" from Coyote Ugly. D. "Bloody Backpack" by Stroke 9 E. Last but not least (this one was me and my mom's song and she is now deceased) "I Can I help you say goodbye" by Patty Loveless maybe? Not for sure. I am so bad at this.

5. Which people are you passing this baton to, and why?
I suppose I will pass this on to Christie
and Marsha (my sweet mother in law)

To Lisa and the rest of you who think I am nuts

Lisa said:
Oh wow - how old is Ethan now that he is in a toddler bed? Was he climbing out of his crib to prompt this move? I dread the day of changing my girl over because I'm afraid she will wander about the house causing havoc while we sleep. But I also wonder how much longer until she is able to climb out of her crib... I don't want her to fall on the floor (which she already did once when she was a few months old and fell from our bed when she slept with us - I felt SOOOO awful!)
Lisa | Homepage | 05.17.05 - 9:42 pm


Well, Ethan was 16 months old on the 11th of this month (but is as big as a 2 yr old). He was NOT climbing out of his crib (I think he is too fat for that), but he is so good about going right to sleep (You lay that boy down and he is asleep...kindof like Daddy after sex..heehee). I could not have asked for a better sleeper. With the twins, they were almost 19 months and were climbing out of their cribs (There was a twin bed in between their beds that made the fall a little less traumatic). We wanted to keep them confined for our own sanity and of course for the obvious safety reasons (hell, now we want them to get out the front door...just kidding..maybe *wink wink*). They were not able to open their door so we kept it closed and now do the same with Ethan. Our kids also come straight to our room when they wake up (6 friggin' am every morning).

Now, this does not mean we have not had our share of injuries.
1. Emily was probably 4 weeks old and Clint thought she could sit up. Uh, No! She fell backwards and hit her head on a wicker basket.

2. Clint was changing Steven's diaper on the bed in the nursery one night and left Steven to take a quick piss. Guess who learned to roll over? Yep, you got it. Steven rolled right off the bed.

3. Clint had the kids outside playing just days before we were to go visit our families, whom we hadn't seen in a year and Ethan did a face plant on the cement.

Now, I am not saying they don't get hurt on my watch, but does anyone else see an interesting trend?
*laughing silently to myself,because he is sitting right here and has no idea what I am typing*

 

Wednesday's Wonder Blog

Today's Wonder Blog is Tuna Girl. What's so great about Tuna Girl? More like what's not great about Tuna Girl. She keeps me entertained with her stories. She is a mother, a miliatry wife, and a wonderfully open woman!!!! Also, today is her BIRTHDAY. She is 32 years old today. Go check her out and do not forget to tell the "old gal" Happy Birthday.

Too Damn Funny

What a Day!

We are done with cribs (holy ape shit batman). Ethan is now sleeping in a toddler bed. My babies are getting so big. I know I bitch and moan about the baby stuff ALL the time (you try having three toddlers, you would be whining like a titty baby), but every now and then, I see how fast they grow up(Boo friggin' hoo, I know).

Another big milestone? Maybe. We are now able to actually leave our bedroom door unlocked and even open without (I put the box of "special items really high")serious consequences (I still do periodic checks). I will be even happier when we can do the same with the bathroom doors. I think we have quite awhile before we get there (remember the porcelain god incident?).

Final note (my head is hung in shame): I have been cheating!!! I have been smoking cigerattes. I know it is a nasty, stinky habit. I am going to have yellow, nasty teeth and a prune mouth. I am not even going to mention the cancer or emphsema (is that spelled right?).I would love to blame it on my friend Jenna (that bitch haha...I am joking of course), but I am an adult. It was easy at first and now, I just need a fix. How pathetic my willpower is. I would love to make excuses like, well at least it isn't heroin, but That is lame. I will just admit my faults here for all the world to see and then go have a cigerette (*lauging sheepishly*)

 

It's coming, It's coming.

Do not forget, Friday is Self Portrait Day. If you are going to paticipate, leave me your link lou in the comments and I will list it on that day's post. I am so excited to see you!!!!!!

Everybody Farts and Farts ARE Funny.

I know, I know. By the age of 31 I should be over the farts are funny thing. Well, I am not. I think they are friggin' hilarious. I think it is funny when I fart, when the kids fart, when the dog farts, and even when my husband attempts to gas me out with his nasty biological warfare farts.
I found this site and thought I should share (in case you were wondering...Yes, I googled the word fart).

 

I hate to see her go.

My husbands boss is retiring. She is such a nice person. She is one of those people that you kind just see the kindness shoot from their eyes. I know he is disappointed to see her go. We went to her retirement party yesterday and had a really nice time.


Steven and Emily had a blast and really were so well behaved.

Ethan got a little cranky toward the end and Mommy was in desperate need of a hairbrush. I swear it was really windy yesterday.

We played a little sand volleyball while we were at the park. Emily had a hard time grasping the concept of volleyball and thought it was one big game of keep away. well, until the ball hit her right smack dab on the top of the head. I know it sounds cruel, but it really was some funny stuff.

Grass stains, racing stripes, and good old sweat stains!

I am pretty darn good at removing stains (move over Martha!), but give me a flippin' break. These damn kids, I swear. Clint mowed the yard (like any good super hubby should) and Emily decided to lather herself in cut grass. Now her adorable (white none the less) tank top has green all over the front. NICE!!! She has also decided it isn't worth the time to wipe her (it's very small, how long can it really take) ass after her gargantuan shits. I suppose She gets that from her Grandad (yes, my father often sports the doodoo racing stripe). The sweat stains, unfortunantly, are me. YUCK YUCK!!! What the hell. I give birth to three damn children and suddenly my pits drip like a damn leaky ass faucet. Dis- gust- ing!!

Thank you to the two (yes, only two, you bitches...hee hee) hotties, Jennifer and Jenny, who participated in Self- Portrait-Friday. Merritt participated in a totally unknowing manner. You gotta love that girl.

If you are here via blog explosion, welcome to my shithole. I am sooo kidding. I have spent alot of time getting this look. I will probably change it again, so why don't you stay awhile. Blogroll me, comment, just feed my addiction. I have said it before and I will say it again. Hi, my name is Katy and I am a blogaddict. I am, however, not a quitter. So, hi ho a dare ee o a bloggin'' I will go.

T.G.I.F

As promised earlier in the week (I cannot remember why I thought this was going to be a good idea), I am posting a picture of ME! I should have taken the time to put on make-up or something, but I wanted you to see me at the end of the day with three very small children (not pretty, my poor husband). You poor, poor people just do not know the torture you are putting those corneas through (I am not liable for any damage to your sight). The wine you see me holding in the picture, is the same wine that gave me the headache plaguing me this morning (I know, no sympathy when I do it to myself).



Feel free to make fun of me, but be gentle.

What do you think of the new look? Does the dirt look to much like carne guisada?

Final Note: Clint got his grade back on his final. It was an "A". He ended up with a 96 in his math class. I am so proud!!!

The Almighty Porcelain God

Yesterday afternoon, my dear friend Christie came by. We were deep in conversation, when we suddenly heard running water upstairs. HHMMMMMMMM...Both adults in the house are downstairs, oh shit, they have turned on the tub (I did not want them to get burned). We both ran upstairs to find the toilet overflowing, after the sacrifice of (way too much) toilet paper. I turned off the water, threw down a gazillion towels, and then plunged my arm in up to the elbow (oh joy). I managed to unload at least a third of a roll, but still the water stayed. In further I went. Down in the deep, dark, poop eating hole was the other two thirds of the roll (gross). As I pulled the giant wad loose, the water immediately rushed out the deep, dark, poop eating hole (I think I just like writing that). AAAHHHHH, a victory. I "calmly" (yah right) explained to the twins why we must never again offer up such a large amount of toilet paper to the "Almighty Porcelain God". I explained that the next time they did this, the "Almighty Mommy God" would beat their "Almighty Asses" .

WEDNESDAY'S WONDER BLOG

Today I would like to focus everyone's attention on Rhianna. She has not just one, but two wonderful blogs. The first, A Texan Abroad is such a wonderful eclectic collection of posts. Rhianna gives you a little bit of everything. You are going to see some current events, some rants about everything from the military to the family, some pretty amusing anecdotes ,again, about everything from her military life to her family, and occasionally some funny quizzes. You will see how sweet, intelligent and witty Rhianna is. Her second blog, Rhianna's recipes is dedicated to all of her wonderful recipes. I highly recommend you get over there and check it out. Yummy Yummy. Thank you Rhianna for always making my blog surfing worthwhile.

 

COMING SOON!

I will be adding two regular features to my blog. I saw both in my daily blog surfing but cannot remember where. (If I got them from you, please let me know. I would love to put up a link)

The first NEW FEATURE will be "WEDNESDAY'S WONDER BLOG". I would like to highlight one of the many great blogs I read each Wednesday. I just think you are all so wonderful I want to be able to tell everyone why I think you are so wonderful. I would also like people to go and see why I read certain blogs everyday. Only doing one each Wednesday is going to make it take a while to get through my list (I even have some I haven't put in my blogroll yet) of daily reads, but I think each is worth the individual attention. I will Post today's wonder blog later this afternoon.

The second NEW FEATURE is (also taken form someone, but I can't remember who. It may have been Andrea.) "SELF-PORTRAIT FRIDAY". When I am surfing through my daily reads and I see a picture, it puts a face with the writer. I love it and thought I might try the same thing. I would also like my friends and family from back home to get an update periodically. Now, when you see me, do not get scared and run. Please no burning torches and pitchforks. I think it might be fun if everybody participated (wink-wink). If you do post a picture, be sure to leave a trackback.

 

Happy Hump Day?

Please do not be surprised at the randomness (is that even a word?) of my thoughts this morning.

I am just going to tell you, I am so saddened by the two little girls that were stabbed to death by ("allegedly") one of the girl's father.
NEXT:
I really am not following the Michael Jackson trial, but do people really expect Macaulay Culkin to get on the stand and testify that he was molested? I would guess he is afraid of the stigma that unfortunately may come along with that kind of admission.
NEXT:
I wonder if people (anti-war supporters) have taken the time to learn how the people in Iraq feel about being liberated? I wonder if they have taken the time to learn about the Islamic extremists that are going into Iraq from other nations? I wonder if they have taken the time to learn about our soldiers and the sacrifices they are making to free and stabilize people a world away from their own everyday lives? I wonder if they really think "Bush started the war"? I wonder if they know it is an act of congress to declare war? I , of course, have been surfing the blogosphere and am amazed by how many people spout off such ignorant rhetoric (not an insult...these people may be very educated but have just not taken the time to really delve into more of the story or just to do not share my opinion).
NEXT:
When, what, who knew? I had absolutely no idea that Kenny Chesney and Renee Zellwegger were even dating. I do not know what that was such a point of interest for me this morning. I guess I was just surprised.
NEXT:
Did anyone watch the season finale of The Amazing Race last night? I was a BIG Rob and Amber fan, but I was content with Uchenna and Joyce winning.

sleepy baby #1


sleepy baby #1, originally uploaded by stemily.

 

Dope 'em up and watch 'em fall.

I gave poor sick baby some Advil Cold medicine this morning before we left for our WIC appointment. He was so tired, he fell asleep as he was climbing out of Daddy's comfy recliner.I love these cute little moments (when they are quiet).They always look so angelic sleeping (I think when their eyes close the horns go back into their skulls). Everyone says to enjoy them now, because they grow up so fast (and move out? smiling at just the idea of sleep in the future.).

For those of you wondering, the weather is beautiful here. I think we may finally be done with the snow. God I hope so. It is May afterall.

Last but of course not least:
I am still working on my blog design. I am thinking about going to white with green lettering. I tried the box Merritt and I am just a plain ol' dumbass. I might try these classes that Rhianna told me about. We'll see.

 

I did it, I did it!!!

I survived my first alone (and I mean ALONE) outing with all three children. I am so proud of myself. I do not know if the "crazy lady meds" are the reason or if they( my little spawns of the devil) are just getting better. I suppose it could be a combination of both. My nerves were intact and they behaved very well. The real test for the "crazy lady meds" is this week. This is PMS week(let the roller coaster begin). So far no heads have rolled and I haven't broken down and wanted to go back to Texas (Thank god for you who live there...the kids and I would need SOMEWHERE to stay). I may one day even go to wal-mart, just the kids and I. I recommend anyone having the same problems I was (I totally thought it was a hormone imbalance), go tell your doctor. I really feel so much better. I do not feel like I am on an emotional rollercoaster and I rarely feel overwhelmed. I am almost sane (I said almost... I have never been completly sane anyways).

 

Don't be jealous!!!!

The top three reasons you might be jealous:
1. We earn so little as PFCs in our United States Army, we qualify for WIC. (Gotta love the WIC)

2. All three of my children are sick. (Not the bird flu)

3. I get to take three sick toddlers to a WIC appointment. (Two have been doped up....one refuses and will puke if I force it.)

I bet so many people wish they were me right about now.

How Do I Look?

Okay, here is the deal. Purple is my favorite color. You would think I would be completely thrilled with how my blog looks. I am not. I think it looks like it belongs to a 14 year-old girl. I know I always bitch about looking older (hey, it ain't easy being the oldest kid on the block), but I do not want to give the dippy impression that I feel this too youthful new look gives. So, what does this mean (besides that I am blog vain)? It means I am begging and pleading for all( three) of you to be patient as I try out new looks. If you see something that you like or that you think is particularly shitty, please tell me. If it looks bad and you do not tell me, that would be like my skirt being tucked in my panty hose and you not telling me. What kind of person would just sit back and laugh? Okay, I may have done that in my younger days, but I am much more (a little more) mature now.

 

Mother's Day, The Yard Sale, and The Bird Flu

First, Happy Mother's Day to all you sexy mothers out there in the blogosphere. I hope everyone had a wonderful time. I did nothing but lay in bed. This is where the bird flu comes in. No, I really did not have the bird flu, but I felt like ass. I did not get out of bed for anything but an occasional trip to the bathroom. I did not even touch my computer. I know, I know. It is a miracle. I suppose I now know I will not die if I go a full day without blogging, but I do not like it!!!
The yard sale Saturday went really well. We made enough to pay off one of our credit cards. Whoopee!!!! Anything that didn't sell, we gave to my friend Jenna. She is having a fundraising yard sale week after next. All the proceeds go to the 3rd ACR to buy cards and send packages to single soldiers and to throw all the guys a great coming home a party at the end of their tour. I couldn't think of anything I would rather that stuff support. We all know I am for supporting our guys (and girls).
I will be making my blog reading rounds this afternoon. I feel so out of the loop and I only missed one weekend.
Crazy unh?

So much to do...so many children!!!!

The BIG yard sale is tomorrow.

I still have several boxes to price, one more sign to make, and I have to figure out how to rig something up for hanging the clothes. Any suggestions? We are selling the full size bed in Ethan's room. I think we have decided to just get a futon. We really do not have many overnight guests and the rooms in post housing are not that big.
I have finished cleaning the kitchen, but still need to vacuum. Then, it is on to Yard sale duties. I hope a lot of people come and shop. We are using all of our yard sale earnings to pay down our last credit card. Goodie Goodie. Then of course it's on to the 30,000 dollars in student loan debt (I don't know what happened to my donate button. What happens if Bill Gates or Oprah reads my blog?)
We are having all the neighbors (well, not all...girl who says I am too sensitive isn't invited...who's sensitive now biatch...hee hee, I'm just kidding,NOT!!!!)for chili night.
Oh oh oh, Last night we (the girls in the neighborhood that DO like me) were discussing "great" ways to earn extra money. I said I was more than willing to sell my eggs to some woman that needed them (where the discussion made a turn for the worse). I suggested to Amy that her husband sell sperm (oh, he can't...been snipped). Her reply? I think he should sell a testicle. Is there a market for that? Could we just put up a sign at the Yard Sale? "TESTICLE FOR SALE...$100,000 OBO". Have you heard of this? I remember the pinky toe rumor...50,000 dollars to sell your pinky toe. I would do that in a heartbeat. One little pinky toe to pay off hubby's student loan debts and our car? HELL YEAH!!! TAKE THEM BOTH!!!!
Okay, so I expect everyone to stop by the yard sale tomorrow. You must spend a least 5 bucks (come on, even I can spare five bucks and my husband is a PFC). Once you have bought your 5bucks worth of needed items, you are then expected to pull up a seat and have a tasty beverage (of your choosing of course...Hey, this is a byob yard sale...What did you expect?).
Well, back to my housework (where the hell is my maid...what? I don't have one? I am going to have to have a talk with the hubby.).

 

I swear I will post something besides quizzes...later

My first MEME

I got tagged by Sque. I do not know whether to say thank you or I am going to kick your ass. HaHaHaHaHa. I believe I am supposed to pick five professions and say what I would do in that job. I then have to tag three other people. Watch out people, I am coming for you.


If I could be a scientist...
If I could be a farmer...
If I could be a musician...
If I could be a doctor...
If I could be a painter...My walls wouldn't be bare. MaMa Duck has a nice painting in her house she did herself. I hate (not really) people like that.
If I could be a gardener...
If I could be a missionary...
If I could be a chef...
If I could be an architect...
If I could be a linguist...
If I could be a psychologist... What I'm not? I watch Dr. Phil all the time and I think I can solve everyone's problems.
If I could be a librarian...
If I could be an athlete... Hell would have frozen over. I am so un-athletic.
If I could be a lawyer...
If I could be an innkeeper...
If I could be a professor...
If I could be a writer...
If I could be a backup dancer...
If I could be a llama-rider...
If I could be a bonnie pirate...
If I could be a midget stripper... I would be in heaven. I love midgets. I could stare at myself without offending anyone. I find little people fascinating.
If I could be a proctologist...
If I could be a TV-Chat Show host...
If I could be an actor...
If I could be a judge...
If I could be a Jedi...
If I could be a mob boss...
If I could be a backup singer...
If I could be a CEO...
If I could be a movie reviewer...
If I could be a mob boss...
If I could be a monkeys uncle...
If I could be a CSI...
If I could be a computer nerd... I would not have to call JackArmy all the time.
If I could be a Kindergarten teacher...

Okay, the instructions said I could add occupations if I want, but I had a hard enough time picking my five. I will, however, tell you who I have chosen to tag. I think since MaMa Duck has so much free time (kidding of course), Merritt, because she is to damn perfect ( I am totally jealous), and Christie, because she doesn't have kids yet and gets to sleep whenever she wants (I hate you...hee hee). I really should just pass the torture on to everyone on my blogroll, but It says three so there!

I'm LOST

Not really, but it is on T.V. I am drinking cheap wine, blogging, and watching television. What could be better (wait, don't I do this every night?). I have surfed around the blogosphere...wait...the phone just rang. Well, that was neighbor girl across the street, Jenna, she wants some help pricing yard sale stuff. So, I guess I have to go play with a friend I can actually see. Miss me while I am gone (laughing at myself hysterically).

 

What do you think?

What do you think of my new title decorations? Is it dumb? too busy? I have been trying to learn some html crap and figured out how to mess with my site more, but I need feedback and suggestions.

 

What a GREAT way to show our support.

Tammy, over at Life's Bitter Sweet Symphony, has a great idea to show support for our troops. She says that there are kids over in Iraq not receiving mail from home. Maybe we could all make it our mission, just as Tammy has, to send some cards or letters. She recommened this site. Which I have gone to. I adopted a soldier and made a donation. I think that is a great starting point. We should all be a little more proactive in showing our support. It would only take 10 minutes a day. I think we could all spare that for someone who is so far from home and so lonely.

Sexy Bitches


Christie, MARYKAY, and I, originally uploaded by stemily.

Do you think this is my color? When we did the MaryKay thing, they did not give us any mascara or eyeliner. We got some god awful, old lady shade of lipstick and some blush. I felt pretty....Not!!!

UPDATE:

I am on the left and Christie is On the right. Yes, Tam, she is naturally that curly. Isn't it beautiful.

 

Spouse appreciation

So, today was military spouse appreciation day at the YMCA.

**Spouse Appreciation Day? Is this a military thing?meritt Homepage 05.02.05 - 10:48 pm # **

It was friggin' great. Especially after the all night marathon with sick Steven and sore throat Mommy (plus I was reading poetry for Ellen Degeneres...see following comment.)
**Hijacking this post to say something OT: Last night you were in my dream. Something about reading a poem and Ellen Degeneres heard you reading it to me and wanted to put you on her show. I told myself to remember more details when I woke up, but alas they are gone.meritt Homepage 05.03.05 - 8:25 a**


When Christie and I first arrived we immediatley signed up for the haircut, massage, and hairstyling. We then went and got our goodie bags and collected goodies from all the vendors. I got about $40.oo worth of GOOD hair products, beannie dolls for the kids, pens, keychains, magnets, etc.... I ended up with a quick facial.( performed by Debbie from Southwest Skin 719-579-8482). That was great. Plus she did a quick skin analysis. Apparently I am need of some deep pore cleansing. Her nice way of saying "man, you have a shit load of black heads". We then got our hair trimmed by some cosmo students. (I swear to my dear friend and hairdresser Tara, I did not let them do anything but trim it. I was desperate. You = Texas, Me = Colorado, very hard to get an appoinment with you.) We then got massages from massage students. Christie got totally ripped off. Mine....GREAT. aaahhhhhhh. I could have gone to sleep for sure (remeber last night?) The massage was supposed to be 15 minutes, but mine I swear lasted almost thirty. She said my lower back was really tight. POOR ME!! Next was supposed to be the hairstyling. Didn't happen. There was too many people waiting and I am too impatient. I did manage to get a manicure though. My cuticles look great. They also served a free lunch. I was REALLY looking forward to that. My husband covered the event last year for the paper and said they served fajitas. NOT THIS YEAR! We got chili hotdogs and they didn't even come with onions. That's okay though. I think the event was awesome. The poeple were all so very nice. They did not have to participate in Spouse appreciation day and they did. How nice was that? Well, I am home now and Clint is back to work. Oh yes, his boss at work let him take off to watch our kids so I could go. To make this event even cooler, they provide daycare. I just wasn't able to get a reservation before they filled up, but his boss let himoff work. What a great deal for ME!!!:)

There goes the neighborhood.

The day started fine. My friends (only a few...wonder why?) came over to play with their children. We all hung out most of the morning. The kids went down for a nap, I did the housework I usually do in the morning and then it happened. Steven woke up complaining that he didn't feel well. He says his head and teeth hurt. I am not sure hot to take that seeing as how he is only two. He has a bit of a temperature and didn't even want to eat the CANDY my friend Jenna got for him. He has been laying on the couch all afternoon. I hope this passes quickly. I cannot even explain what it is like around here when three toddlers get sick at the same time. Got vallium?
Tomorrow is spouse appreciation day. Goodie...Goodie!!! I'll let you know how it goes.:)

 

I wonder which Gabage Pail kid I am?
