Mothers of boys…

I know I have mentioned my dear Granny before. She has a great sense of humor and always shares.

I asked God for a whole house of boys. I have two. Full enough, we can stop!

My Granny got me this craftacky plaque a few years ago as a birthday gift. It hangs in my kitchen.


Tacky? Yes. True? Absolutely.

While the same can be said for having children of either sex, girls just don’t get the same play on words as boys here. Anyone who has tried to harness the madness that ensues from the Y chromosome will see the humor.

Granny never gets tired of the silliness though. This is a gift that hangs on my fridge:


Cute, huh? (sheesh)

The reason for this lame post was that I ran across a cool quote, about boys (thank you step-sister-in-law) on Facebook *eyeroll* of all things, and had to play with it:

I hope you will have fun with this one. I think I will head over to my girlfriend’s and abuse her Cricut machine to make this beauty into a vinyl. I will display it proudly over the toilet bowl that is only a mere suggestion of where to pee.


Lord have mercy!


Oh, and Happy Hump Day.

Free stuff totally beats all other stuff! Free stuff also means that I will be up till the wee hours trying to redesign my blog template.

A shout out must go to the wonderfulness that happens so that I may choose a new look.

Megan, you are the best! Check her out HERE. She is the amazing talent behind Shabby Blogs.

Thanks girlie, you rock!

Free printables:

Valentine’s Day is not too far away. I am not really into decorating for every little holiday but I do like to make cards.

Here are some fun, free, downloadable, printables for you to play with:

These are simple and fun. I have them laid out in an 8x10. I plan to use the two black and white ones on cards and the brown one I might put in a frame.

Enjoy. If you have any questions or would like to share ideas leave a comment.

Saturday 6:


Sheee’s Baaacckkk!!! Since one of my favorite blogs to read is back up doing it’s thang, I will play along today.



  • How do you feel about the death penalty? Hells Yeah! I kind of wish the penalty for unspeakable acts was taken more seriously across the board. You really think a molester/rapist can serve time, be “rehabilitated”, and thrown back out into society?! You are stupid if you think this works.  
  • Did you make a New Year's resolution? If so--what!? Yes. Because I am a masochist, I make one every year. Usually it is broken by Jan. 3rd… This years? I broke it so fast I don’t even remember what it was, and I feel bad about that.
  • Why do women take men on Maury for paternity tests when they know DAMN well that Maury is going to say..."You are NOT the father!"?? Sheesh! Because some idiot out there still watches it. If this is even real, those women make me sick. How do you not remember who was inside you?!?! Whore. I have an idea: spend more time at home with your little bastard instead of being the neighborhood cum bucket. After all, you are all he has!
  • Teen Mom on MTV...does it glorify teen pregnancy? Do you watch it? Don't lie--you do, don't you? Why is this even a show?! I haven’t watched MTV since it actually played music videos. It totally does glorify. I don’t care what the show even has for content but when I am checking out at the grocery store and in giant letters the “TEEN MOM” is on the cover of People, it kinda makes it cooler than it should be.
  • Pajama jeans--rockin or ridic? Hmmm… I won’t lie, I watched the commercial.
  • Travel back in time--tell us about the teenage you! I have been trying to stuff that little biotch away for years! I was a lot different to me than a lot of people saw me. Grunge was pretty hot so most days I could be found in baggy jeans and a flannel. I kept my eye on my feet or my face in a book most times. Never really fit into a group. Decent grades but I was lazy. Most of my day I was just wishing to be back in the band room. Defiant, careless, moody, poor self esteem, stupid, you know- typical teenage girl. (right?)


Now c’mon bloggies, head over to the link and play along!

I have a less than desirable day ahead of me. Maybe Sunday will make up for it.

Have a great weekend! *muah*

In honor of:

I would like to say first off: thank you God I did not get a hysterectomy this week like miss thang and her boobies! Now for my list…

  • Fawk you stupid people who can’t see two inches from your face (figuratively).
  • Fawk you to the crazy house market that makes my decisions sooo hard.
  • Fawk you to the jerks that think it is a good idea that my dear hubbs work nights this week (Oh how I miss your sweet ass baby!).
  • Fawk you to the 4 or 5 (ok, 17) cigarettes that have stopped my 7 month no smoking streak. And the stress you rode in on!
  • Fawk you to this crazy epiphany that astrologists had that make a tattoo I got with my sister for her birthday null and void. I will always be born under the sign Gemini. So there.   
  • Fawk you Mirena that decided that after a year I needed to experience the full wrath of my menstrual cycle!
  • And fawk you very much for this shitty hand. Lately.  



Ahhh… thanks.

Snow day!!!

I promise not to whine.

I do, however, fully understand why my own mother (who has never complained about being a mom) always had a small sigh of resignation at the thought of all of us home all day, cooped up and crazy.

I love the snow. I love the winter. I also love Bailey’s and coffee but there is a time and a place for everything. My point is that I need a little break before we get another break. With the kids on cycles at school they got a really long break for Christmas. I only get two hours to myself twice a week as it is and the past month I haven’t. This is doubly compounded by the fact that my hubbs is now pulling the evening shifts. This is short lived I hope.

I am not ungrateful, I do love spending more time with my dear husband. I love my kids. I actually miss them when they are gone but i think I really need the time to miss them once in a while. That being said, let us entertain the troops!

We (well anything with a penis) laid around all morning (I did 4 loads of laundry) and then it was time to play.


I am a really crappy blogger because instead of endanger the life of my camera, I chose to play with my kids. Now picture Miss Piggy on a dinner plate going 40mph straight down a hill. There. That is the best picture I can give you. After treading on every inch of untouched snow in our yard we chose hot chocolate (I know it’s too early but I still vote Bailey’s) over frostbite and decided to call it a day.

A mother’s work is never done. I even cleaned off my car as a part of “playtime”. Now while the rug rats complain that their snack is not filling their bellies like a four course meal (dinner is in the oven!) and loaf around rotting their brains with kid TV, I will be taking care of the aftermath of play. 


I will name thee Load 5!

In reality I long to be here:


My favorite flannel sheets, on my fresh made bed, with my Bailey’s and a chick flick. Mmmm…

Pass the pot man…

Neti that is. My husband called me a hippie when I whipped it out, frankly I’m just desperate.

I have had this freakin’ cold for what feels like 8 months. In actuality I should have probably sought the help of a medical professional many weeks ago when the first stabbing pain hit my ear. Then the holidays happened, and no one else got sick, so I just kept putting it off. Now I am absolutely miserable and have random weird symptoms of death. I have tried everything to unlock my sinuses so that I may have even partial use of my nose with no success. I have been waking up with terrible stomach pains and have deduced that it is gas caused by the gasping and swallowing of air in my sleep. I know, TMI. My poor husband.

So in my desperation I have chosen to do something that I would normally only do on a dare… drunk. I decided to pour water  directly into one nostril and let it run (using the “smooth gravity flow”) out the other washing my sinus cavities. Nasal irrigation. Shit.

I usually love things that run along the lines of holistic medicine, let Mother Nature take care of us right?! This is one that I have strictly avoided. I set this bitch up at the kitchen sink much to the amusement of my dear husband and prepared to Deepak my face. It was weird, but it started to work! In your face sinus infection!

Well that only lasted like 5 minutes. It seems that an isotonic, pH balanced, Sodium Chloride and Sodium Bicarbonate/ warm water solution is no match for the snot that resides in my sinuses. I am back on complete lock down. Double shit.

So I will take up Afrin like a junkie and I will make an appointment so see someone who “practices” Western medicine first thing tomorrow. I promise. Unless I get busy. Or feel like crap and stay in my PJ’s all day. This damn thing cost what my co-pay is maybe I’ll give it another shot. Wish me luck! *snort*
