Oh snap!

My Mac took a crap…  That bastard cat of mine, Monkey, chewed on the power cord. Well, we all know what happends when you can’t charge your computer. You cant blog! Sad…

I am planning on getting a new one from the Apple store within the next few days!

I be back to blogging in no time!!!


Ya, I fixed the toilet!

I truly am the lady of the house! Really, I am! There are three human males, one male cat, and one male beta fish. You would think that with all the wieners in my house things would get fixed. NOOOOOOOO! Nothing gets fixed around here unless I do it.

I have a semi-photographic memory. I don’t even know if that’s a word? But basically if I take something apart I can usually fix it and put it back together better than new! The dishwasher, garbage disposal, vacuums, my DVR box, and tonight the toilet.

Our toilet upstairs hasn’t been flushing right since before halloween. Well my friends, I took the tank apart and now it’s flushing like it’s never flushed before! Actually, probably better than before. It has more wooossshhhh than a movie theater bathroom.

I was so stinkin’ happy that I got it to flush right I screamed and did a happy dance around the bathroom! Then I had to call Chris up to rub it in that I can fix things, and he cant! Nener nener!!!

So? How much do you think I could get paid to fix toilets? Maybe, just maybe, I could make a living doing that? Or not… I dont think I’d like seeing other peoples poop. 

Good underwear are hard to come by.

Am I right about this lady’s? To me its hard to find underwear that don’t “ride” when I walk. I’m a simple girl, with pretty simple panty expectations. In high school, and for a few years after I graduated I only wore thongs. Yes, to me it did matter what guys saw when I bent over. Just that little bit of string was enough to drive there imaginations crazy. Plus there was that song Sysco sang, “That thong, th, th, th, thoooonnnnnngg!” (The Thong Song). I have to admit that song was the reason I started wearing them in the first place!

When I started to work for Wells Fargo in 2004 I stopped wearing them cause I felt weird having such sexy underwear on, and being dressing up so business like. So now I am a Hanes girl! I just couldn’t go back to the thong after having to kids climb out of my “down under”. I have noticed that it takes me buying a couple packs to find one good pair. It’s almost like a conspiracy with the underwear makers. They need to sell more, to make lots of money. And lets face it. You don’t really have to buy them that often. So in return they put millions of duddy underwear out on the shelves so that we buy them, only to realize that they are so uncomfortable that we have to go get new pack to see if those ones will fit any better.

The only reason I’m even bringing this up is cause tonight after I got out of the shower I had to try two different pairs on before I found a pair that felt right. And guess what? The pair that I have on I had before Aidan was even born. They were bright pink, but now their a dull pink color. There is holes all over them, but they don’t give me wedgies, so I don’t care!

Oh lord, don’t even get me started on a good fitting bra!

Have any of you experience these problems, or anything like them?

My giddy sister!

My sister and I are very close! She lives just a few blocks away from us! Because if those two things, I’ve become pretty good at reading her.

Well, we’ve all been looking for a boyfriend for her. She hasn’t had one in quite sometime now. And it finely happened! Not the boyfriend part, but the dating that could lead to one!

A few weeks back one of her patient’s (she’s a RN) set a med student and her up, and they finely went on a date last night! YA! It went so well that he called her tonight while we were having dinner (she eats here often) and to ask her to go out again tomorrow, for New Years! They will probably kiss! 

Im super excited for her, she was all giddy about it when he called. She never gets like that over guys… She had a grin that went from ear to ear!

The only down side is… He’s a PUKE! Yes, he went to Arcadia High School. Boooo

A letter to myself

Dear Fat-ass,

Yes, you, the one sitting there in front of the Macbook, writing this blog instead of going to the gym. You, the one that would rather watch TV in stead of going for a walk. You, the one that loves lays chips with cheese on top. You, the lady that drinks coke like it’s going out of style!

You’re no longer carrying baby weight. It’s been 3 years since you had Aidan, and almost 2 since Liam. You are officially fat. And its time to do something about it.

I’m not trying to be mean, just honest. You complain all the time about not fitting into your clothes comfortably. Its time to regain you closet, and start looking like the MILF you are! You saved all the pre-baby cloths. They’re in a bag on the top shelf of the closet. Or, what about all those clothes you brought last February? They’re sitting in your closet as well.

So here’s to you. There is a curves across the street. Join it! Set your self free!



New TV!

As many of you may know I am a huge TV buff! I can’t get enough of it! Thank god Im a stay at home mom, cause I get to watch it all day (wel,l more like glance at it)! And what I can’t watch my DVR catches, and I watch it once the boys go to bed. Man, I really love the person that invented the DRV (bet it was a woman that hated missing her shows)!

Back in October the TV in our bedroom went out. At least we thought it did. One day it just stopped working, then last week Chris was messing around with it and got it to work again! Ya, cause I love laying in bed at night watch Jay and Conan!

Every Sunday we do dinner with my in-laws! We didn’t have a chance to go to their house on Christmas to open presents, so we did it tonight! After dinner Chris was called into the kitchen, then a few minutes later I was. Much to my surprise there was a brand new 20″ flat screen sitting on the floor for us! YA! My husbands parents know what’s important to me in life, my TV’s!

We got it home, hooked it up and got the 2nd DVR ( yes, we have 2 DVR’s) and now I am perched on my bed watching TV and blogging!

My life is pretty much perfect!

Smilin’ and winkin’

Our car has been in desperate need of an oil change for quite some time now. Chris had to work today, so he left the task of the oil change up to me!

I haven’t ever gone and had an oil change done myself. I know that sounds pathetic, Im 26 and never changed the oil myself. But my dad and brother always took care of that. Then when Chris came along he started doing it for me!

Ok, to back to the task at hand! I dropped the boys off at my mother in laws, and proceeded to go to Jiffy Lube. I get there and right away a guy come up to the car, helps me out, takes my keys and walks me to the lobby!

Who know that some winkin’ and smilin’ would get you a $90.00 oil change?

Not me!

But it did!

I walked out of Jiffy lube with a $90.00 bill, all cause the guy flirted with me a little!

God Im a sucker…

Pillow talk

I lay here in my freshly laundered bed sheets, frustrated that I’m having yet another sleepless night. This is something that is far to common in my life since I had Liam. I don’t know if it is the anxiety that is keeping my up? Or maybe the million things that I should have done today that I didn’t have the time to do? Either way, it’s both a blessing and a curse.

As a lay here, I am in awe at how beautiful my husband is to me. He is the greatest man I know next to my dad and grandfathers. He gets up and goes to work everyday to provide for our boys and I. Wait rewind, I should say that he works two jobs. A day job as a manager at a well known bank, and then he has a weekend night job as a limo driver. He does all this because he knows that having me home with our boys is what is best for them right now. Did I mention that he does all this without a single complaint? Hardly ever do I hear him complain about his job(s). He loves going to work, and helping people! He really loves walking in the door from a long days work to be greeted by an over stressed wife and two eager little men who just want to snuggle their daddy.

I sit here writing this, and as I do so I look over at how peaceful he looks when he sleeps. I know that karma was looking out for me when Chris walked into my life! He is the glue to our family. We stand committed to each other even when times get rough. He’s never strayed, he’s never spiteful, or mean. Sometime he’s grumpy, but who isn’t? Chris has the biggest heart!

Might I add that he has the greatest family! They are all so loving and supportive! When I think about them it brings tears of joy to my eyes. Never have I met such and understanding and excepting family. Im am very honored to have taken there last name.

I just wanted all my readers to know how happy I am with my husband laying here asleep next to me, and our 2 boys asleep in the next room over. 

Yes, he does bug me from time to time. But generally I feel very lucky that I get to call him MY husband!

Now, maybe with all this said and out in the open I can fall asleep?
