Popping In

June 30, 2008

No time for a real post this morning, but I wanted to pop in and say all is still well. Today begins my Hell-weeks at work. Because July 4 falls in a week that I have Tuesday off normally, I don’t get it off. I think the theory is that they’re giving us the holiday off, we don’t need a regular day off….So I work M-F this week (yes, I volunteered for the 4th) then M-S the following week. and I worked M-S last week, Ugh,

My boy has a little mark on his forehead. I’ve asked him about 5 times what he did, and I’ve gotten 5 answers, not the least of which went like this:

Me: "What’d you do to your head?"
Him: "Where?"
Me: running my fingers lightly over the spot "Right here."
Him: "Ow, ow, ow, ow." Mind you, this is just a teeny, tiny little scab, bout 1/4" round – it almost can’t be seen….
Me; "So it hurts..? How’d you get it?"
Him: "You did it."
Me: "I did it..? When did I do that?"
Him: "Yep, you did it. "
Me: "When did I do it..?"
Him: "Yesterday."
Me: relieved "How could I have done it yesterday? You were with Rosa all day."
Him: "Oh yeah, I was, wasn’t I?"
Me: "So how’d you do it?"
Him: "If I’m really, really good while we’re at the store can I get a toy?"

And that was the end of the conversation. Oh yeah, did I mention we were at the return counter of Wally World when this conversation took place..? There I am being accused by my child of hurting him, while all the neighborhood biddies listen in. How many do you think actually heard the whole conversation, and how many just the part about "You did it"?

Oh well, such is life. This mornings questioning about it got me the response that Buster or Bandit (Stacey’s pets) must have done it. I guess I’ll never know. Well, gotta go put my nose to the grindstone (or ear to the idiots as the case may be…)

Oh yeah, wanted to add tomorrow’s the big day. We go back to the doctor’s. Hopefully the little guy will get that cast off. It’s gotta suck, being in a cast most of the summer : ( Oh, and we’re still awaiting the falling-out of the loose tooth.

See ya laterzzzzzzzzzzz!


Well Alrighty Then…

June 29, 2008

Well, it seems I placed first in weekly points in the trivia competition over at Tom’s Hideaway this week, which is cool! Tom was kind enough to link to my blog so everyone can come visit, which is also cool. That means I have to post here, or risk looking like a slacker – not cool…Oh well, such is life. I’ll just look at it as motivation, to get me to post more regularly than I have been, ‘cuz I really don’t have enough other shit to do to keep me busy *innocent look*

Thanks Tom.

No really, I do appreciate the link, I love to have folks visit, even though I really have been slacking. My other blog, A Witch In Time does get updated daily. Usually. But it is more structured, with a particular subject matter each day, and I feel like a school kid not doing their homework if I don’t update it….I expect my 2nd/3rd/4th grade teacher to come knocking on my door: "Jodi…do you have your homework from yesterday’s assignment..?" That would be Mrs. Kinnenninen (No names are being changed to protect the innocent, as there are no innocents here).

When we moved to Kansasville I was in 2nd grade, and she was the teacher. We didn’t really hit it off so to speak. Mrs. Kinnenninen was 350 lbs of bleached out, frizzy afro-having, lime green Cadillac-driving meanness. And that was on her good days. Her idea of classroom discipline was to grab a child by the hair on their head and shake them until their teeth rattled. Lucky me, When I moved on to 3rd grade, she was moved over to teach the 3rd & 4th grade class. (Yes, it was a small school, 3rd & 4th were in one room…).

This was the woman who tried to flunk a straight A student (me, A’s on all assignments, A’s on all tests) because I never took homework home. Huh..? Her logic, as related to my mother when she questioned her about why I brought home all A’s and had an F on my report card, was "Well, the other kids see that she never takes any homework home. They’ll think they can not take homework home and get A’s if I give her an A…" Needless to say, Mom got the grades changed to A’s.

Hmmmm… how the mind does wander….

So, I’ve been kid free since 11:30 yesterday morning. Not that I could really take advantage of it, I had to work from 12:30 to 9:00, and by the time I stopped at Wally World ( speaking of Wally World, The Vinyl Villager has a great post about Wally World over on his blog. Actually he has a lot of great posts…go check it out!) and got home, I had just enough energy to eat and fall out. *sigh* What an exciting life I lead. I didn’t even have the energy to redo my toenails in relative peace. And hunny has just left to go pick him up. Which is good, ‘cuz I miss the little shit darling.

I get to spend today doing laundry, ‘cuz I lost my Tuesday off due to the holiday (My employer has this really screwy policy that if a holiday falls in the week of your "flex day" you have to work it. Not sure how it qualifies as a "flex day" as it ‘s my regular day off, every other week…but if I want a job, I have to do what the company says…) so I don’t have a day off until this upcoming Saturday. And today is the first I’ve had in the last 7 days. Friday is the Fourth, and is a company holiday, but I volunteered to work. How could I not…I got overtime for yesterday, ‘cuz I have to work Tuesday, And I’ll get overtime and holiday pay for Friday.  Doesn’t give me much free time, but hey, the bills never stop!

Ok, gotta go do the laundry shuffle, plus squeeze in grocery shopping, a shower, a bath for the boy in a cast (always fun…NOT), cooking some kind of meal, and dealing with all of the little crisis’ involved in having a stubborn 5 year old and even more stubborn 41 year old home together…should be an interesting day!

See ya laterzzzzzzzzzz!

Oh yeah! I’ve been meaning to put this up, and since I’m here now, I better do it before it flees my mind and never gets done. (Yes, that happens frequently in my world…) I was over at Hey! It’s Free catching up on the freebies I’d missed in the last few days, and came across this – Chacha. It’s a website where you can go and ask anything and get the answer. But that’s not the exciting (yes I know, I have a pathetic existence and I am easily amused) part. The exciting part is they also offer this as a text service. You can send a question – any question, about anything – to 242242, and get a response in just a minute or two. I tested it by asking "who was Carter’s vice president?" (fairly easy) and "When is Lammas?" (not quite as easy) and I got correct answers in about 30 seconds. I also got a bit of background info about the answers ( for example, the answer to "When is Lammas?" was "Lammas Tide -August 1, beginning of harvest cycle & rests in early grain harvest as well as those fruits & veggies ready 4 picking" Now that’s a complete answer!)

Now why does this excite me? you ask…Well, I don’t know about you, but I have found myself in a conversation about some trivial, off-the-wall, not necessarily mainstream subjects. More often, I find myself at a loss for answer to something I know. It is buried so far under all the other crap, stuff, useless information, knowledge I have amassed, I just can’t access it. This would (will) be great in that situation. Standard text messaging rates apply, but since we just changed our plan to unlimited everything, s’not a problem for me : )

Ok, really going now…*grin*

Perception – At Least That Was The Plan….

June 28, 2008

Do you ever wonder how the “world” perceives you? What it is other people see when they look at you? Do you think others see the same things you are trying to project? I have no idea why I am wondering these things, my mind tends to go where ever it wants to, and I just go along for the ride. And believe you me, there have been some dooseys 🙂 As I was getting ready for work, which involves looking in the mirror, I wondered if what I was seeing is what others see. I don’t think it is.
To begin with, let’s look at my perception of me physically. Like many people, my weight tends to fluctuate, I have been as heavy as 190, when pregnant, and as low as 130 (many, many, many moons ago, when I was still dancing, working physically every day). But no matter what my weight, when I look in the mirror, I don’t really see myself as fat – even when I am lol. Yes, I said fat. I’m really not big on being politically correct, as you know if you’ve read my past posts. But really, if you’re 5’5″ ( I am) and you weigh 176 ( I did) face it, no matter how “well-proportioned” or evenly distributed it may be, you’re FAT (I was). But I didn’t see it when I looked in a mirror. It was glaringly obvious in pictures, but when getting dressed / made-up, I truly didn’t see it. I did know I was “big”, I was wearing size 16, some 18, but I still didn’t look fat to myself. My hunny, bless his big ‘ol heart, tells me constantly that it doesn’t matter if I weigh 125 or 250, he still loves me as I am. I believe him. Why? Well, actions speak louder than words, and after almost 10 years, the man’s sex drive has, if anything, increased.
Now, I can’t decide if this mis-perception is good or bad. I mean, as a plus, it implies a positive self-image. But on the other hand it implies self-delusion. I wonder what I really “look like”..?
I have since lost weight, I now wear anywhere from a 7 to an 11, depending on the mfg. But I don’t really look that different to me. I dunno, it’s weird. There are other things, too. Things like age. How old do I look? How old should I look? Public figures, particularly movie types, seem to not age much. You see a woman who is 60 years old, and she “looks” somewhere between 35-40. Yet in the real world, many of the people I know look much older than they are. I’ve been told I don’t look my age, quite often, but what does a 41 year old mother-of-three-grandmother-of two look like? I don’t fell like I imagine a mother-of-three-grandmother-of-two should feel. At least not usually. I do have some issues, but I deal with them. I remember babysitting for a neighbor when I was about 14-going-on-40. She was 21, and to my thoughts, she was ANCIENT. It doesn’t seem like that was almost 30 years ago…I used to joke that I would never wear “40 year old’s jeans”, referring to what I now call “Mom jeans” – high-waisted, wide hipped, narrow at the bottom and usually at least an inch or two too short. I still don’t wear them, and don’t think I ever will, but you notice the change in terminology..? Yeah, ‘cuz I’m a 40 year old ( and then some). I’ve been thrilled since low-rise, bootcut has come back in style, and I imagine I will wear them even if they go back out. I’m ill-bilt, as we say in these parts, and the usual women’s styles just don’t work for me. Really. If they are long enough, the waist sits just under my boobs. If the waist is even close to where it should be, they will be at a minimum 4 inches too short, probably closer to 6. Does that mean that low-rise, bootcut is the new “40-year-olds-jeans”..?
I got an email from one of my cousins in Wisconsin the other day title “The 40 Year Old’s Dress-code” which included the following advice :
1. A nose ring and bifocals don’t go together.2. Spiked hair and bald spots are a bad combination.3. A pierced tongue and dentures shouldn’t be in the same mouth.4. Miniskirts and support hose, not flattering.5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads, bad idea.6. Speedo’s and cellulite, not user friendly.7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar, not complimentary to each other8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor shouldn’t be worn together9. Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge, also not viewer friendly.
10. Bikinis and liver spots don’t go there.
11. Short shorts and varicose veins, don’t go there, either.12. Inline skates and a cane don’t work well together.And last, but not least . . .13. Thongs and Depends, what were you thinking?
Now why would she go there? you are wondering to yourselves…Well lemme tell ya, I happen to be guilty, an aficionado of, a wearer of, uhhh, some of that is stuff that refers to me. Like the pierced tongue/dentures remark..? I happen to have both ( and lemme tell ya, Hunny is a big fan of both, if you know what I mean…). And the bellyring/gallbladder remark? Well, it just so happens I have both of those,too. Kinda. I definately have the gallbladder scar. And it’s not one of those dainty little, three-one-inch-cuts scar either. It’s the real deal. It starts just under my ribs on the right side, and is somewhere between 10 and 12 inches long. It’s been there for 24 years. Yep, you read that right, 24 years…I got that scar 3 weeks after my 17th birthday. Then I got pregnant again, and had my oldest boy 10 months to the day after the surgery. I can’t remember it ever really bothering me, appearance-wise. I’ve never striven to keep it covered (kinda hard to do when you dance nekkid, or nearly so for a living…). I wear short shirts, bikinis, etc… So, I take a bit of offense at that list – or at least fell like I should, truly it doesn’t bother me a bit. I should care..? Not!
Hmmmm… this isn’t really where I meant to go…see? my mind just goes where it will, LOL.
What I had in mind was more along the lines of perception, personality, not so much physical appearance. How am I perceived? Do I come across as I am..? No. I know I don’t…well, I do, kinda. To begin with, apparently I am pretty intimidating. Not intentional. Usually. *looking innocent* I think it is a combination of self-assurance, intelligence, and a large vocabulary. I’m really not that imposing physically, 5’5″, about 140ish now, but I do have pretty good posture. My shoulders are wider than the average woman’s from years of pole work & upside down push-ups, but not to the point of looking too manly. I do have long legs, which translates to long strides, and apparently I don’t walk, I strut. I used to have girls tell me they wished they could “strut like you do”.
I think a lot of it is attitude. Unlike many females, I don’t fear. Well, I fear a lot of things, but not in such a way that anyone would know it. I once had an ex tell me he hated walking into a bar with me, because I walked in like I owned the place. Yeah, and….? What’s the problem with that..? Do you see a problem with that? How should I walk into a bar? Should I lower my eyes and hunch into myself..? Hide the $250 pool cue I’m carrying..? What..? Not happening! I tend to walk with head up, eyes watching all around, and taking long strides. I’m not afraid of eye contact, and I’ll speak, as long as you aren’t a drunk jackass thinking you’re God’s gift and that I should fall at your feet in worship. That’ll NEVER happen.
The tattoos don’t hurt. Well, they hurt a little to get…but they add to the intimidation factor, I’m sure. There’s a dragon on one arm, and a dragon & pentacle on the other. I have more, but those are the ones most likely to be visible. But as a rule, I don’t set out with the intention to intimidate people. I’m friendly, mostly. I’m considerate, I’ll help someone load groceries into their car, if they look like they need help. I carry heavy bags for elderly or handicapped people, I will grab stuff off the top shelf for someone in a wheelchair, most of all I NOTICE these types of things. Whereas the majority of the population would just go about their merry way, not even acknowledging that someone other than themselves might not only exist, but actually need a little assistance. You know who these people are. They live next door, drive SUVs & sportscars, and minivans. They are the “average american family” John & Jane Doe and their 2.5 kids – who they are teaching the same blindness and self-absorption to. And that is what it is – learned blindness & selfishness.
And yet, I’m still the scary one. The intimidating one. I once had a little girl (okay, she wasn’t so little, she was like 16 or 17 at the time) tell me I terrified her until she saw me interact with my son. Because I am self-confident, tattooed, not shy about speaking my mind (without resorting to cussing, screaming or yelling), will look you in the eye, practice witchcraft, of which I am not a bit ashamed, love my husband without a need to belittle him to others, and numerous other things, I’m the scary one.
Hmmmm…..well it looks like I’m not going to actually get to write about what I wanted to, because apparently my mind has other things on it’s…well…it’s mind.
Reading back over this, it seems a bit rambly, but I guess it says what I need to say. Not necessarily what I wanted to sit down and write about but there it is…
Gotta go back to work….ugh!
See ya laterzzzzzzzzzz!

I’m Still Alive

June 27, 2008

I feel absolutely horrible not having posted here…I’ve been meaning to – I’ve even started to, a couple of times. But it seems everytime I sit down to write, something else needs done, and it needs done NOW. I wouldn’t know how to act with 2 or 3 hours to myself, uninterrupted – no kid, no hunny, no phone…I’d probably wander aimlessly, looking for someone to holler at me “Hey! I need….” I can just see me wandering the neighborhood, “Excuse me, do you NEED something..?”

I sit my boy down with breakfast, and think “Ok, I have a few minutes to myself” I sit down at the computer and start to type and I hear “MOOOOOM” (‘cus he’s hollering at me from downstairs, so of course it has to be at the top of his lungs…) “Yes, son” And then he pops off with some out-of-left-field-has-no-relevance-to-anything kinda question. And you HAVE to answer, because my son is nothing if he isn’t persistent. IF you try to collect a few moments by not answering he will ask again. And again, and again, until you DO answer. And don’t try to blow him off with some simple-quit-asking-questions kinda answer. No sirree Bob, that won’t cut it. The kid is very logical, and if your answer doesn’t make sense logically, or is too simple, well then it becomes a conversation, not just a question. The kid wears me out – not just physically, but mentally as well.


The Perils of Parenthood.

Well, we still have a cast. The appointment is for Tuesday. Hopefully it’ll come off then. Not that it has really hampered the little shit darling, other than that he can’t go swimming. Not that he has kept the damm thing dry – oh no, can’t have that! But he still plays just as rough, fights with the big kids and goes to Karate.

Speaking of Karate, this week was “Crazy Hair” week at Karate. I wanted to do him up with bright orange hair (it is his favorite color) but couldn’t find any orange : ( So I got bright green and neon blue, and did it half and half – kinda like Mommy’s. Uhhhh, no wait, my hair isn’t green & blue, although…NO strike that thought. But my hair is two-tone. It is red on top, and black on the bottom. It’s pretty cool if I do say so myself ! At least, I get lots of compliments on it, so I can convince myself it’s cool…

OK, back to the boy. Here’s a pic.

Well, it’s that time again – the slave drivers – aka work – call. Gotta go get ready to be “professional” like (ugh). But at least I popped in to say Hi. I just feel so bad – I haven’t even really gotten to check in on the blogs I follow…Ah well, such is life…

George Carlin – R.I.P

June 24, 2008

I am a big fan of George Carlin, and have been trying to think of/find an appropriate way to reflect this. I will miss him, and his views that, while claiming to be comedy, actually hit pretty close to the mark – at least with me. I went to Tom’s Hideaway, like I do every morning, to play the daily trivia game, and found this waiting for me. I hope Tom will forgive me for stealing borrowing his post….but it is probably the most appropriate, for me….

George Carlin died of heart failure last night after checking into a hospital complaining of chest pains, he was 71.
Here is one of the many rants he performed in his great comedic career:


When it comes to bullshit, big-time, major league bullshit, you have to stand in awe of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims, religion.
No contest.
No contest.
Religion easily has the greatest bullshit story ever told. Think about it. Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day.
And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do.
And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever ’til the end of time!
But He loves you.
He loves you, and He needs money!
He always needs money!
He’s all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, but somehow just can’t handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullshit story.
Holy shit!
But I want you to know something, this is sincere, I want you to know, when it comes to believing in God, I really tried.
I really, really tried.
I tried to believe that there is a God, who created each of us in His own image and likeness, loves us very much, and keeps a close eye on things.
I really tried to believe that, but I gotta tell you, the longer you live, the more you look  around, the more you realize, something is
f*@ked up.
Something is wrong here.
War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades.
Something is definitely wrong.
This is not good work.
If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.
Results like these do not belong on the resume of a Supreme Being.
This is the kind of shit you’d expect from an office temp with a bad attitude.
And just between you and me, in any decently-run universe, this guy would’ve been out on his all-powerful ass a long time ago !!

R.I.P. George

A bit of Info, Since I’ve Been Slacking (Sorry, Again)

June 23, 2008

OMG! I have so not gotten this blog updated! Damm! And I really don’t have time to do it justice this morning, either…but I will do what I can.

It has been a relatively quiet week in my world – and I’m sure the fates read that and will make sure that it doesn’t stay that way for long – I had to get up early every day this past week & take my boy to meet Stacey so he could go to Vacation Bible School. Imagine, me, a witch, getting up early so my child can go to church! Ah well, we firmly believe he can’t make an informed choice later in life if he doesn’t have all the information. So we let him go to VBS.

But, it did make life a little rough for the week. Everyone knows I don’t wake up well…I had to get up at like 6:30, so I could be functional enough to drive by 7:45, then I had to pack the boy into the car (rarely an easy feat) and drive up to Speedway (about 6 miles) and wait for Stacey to show. The agreed meeting time was 8:10, but Stacey, bless her heart, despite being a Christian definitely runs on Pagan Standard Time (habitually late). Even though I know this, I still show up on time – it’s one of my Things. So I went, and waited, and waited, and waited. She usually showed somewhere between 8:20 & 8:30. Then I got to drive home, rush to get ready, and head out to work. Fun, fun!

But that’s over now, whew!

Like I said, the week was pretty uneventful, I spent Saturday sewing & cleaning (love to sew, hate to clean) I didn’t get my Friday post up over at A Witch in Time until Saturday, and then it took me most of the rest of the day to get Saturday’s up. Which was actually Wednesday’s. (don’t ask). But I got the house (mostly) clean, one top (mostly) done and a good start on another. The kids came over yesterday with the grandbabies, and we spent the day visiting & eating rotini (rotini…mmmmmmmmmmm)

Hunny got slammed with a Migraine about 5:00 yesterday, and has been in bed in a drug-induced stupor ever since (poor man, has absolutely no drug tolerance. I’m surprised Aleve doesn’t knock him out *grin*)

Ok, so there’s a little bit of catch up. I have to get ready for work now ewwwwwwwww! But I swear I’ll try to do better! Gotta go for now.

See ya laterzzzzzzzz! ! !                                

To All (3) of My Regular Readers…

June 20, 2008

I haven’t forgotten you, my life has just been very full lately (as you can probably tell from my last two (unfinished) posts). I am off this weekend, and plan on playing catch up. Luckily, despite being busy, there haven’t been a lot of noteworthy occurrences, so I’m not getting too far behind *grin*

Please accept my apologies, and bear with me…I will get this back on track probably tomorrow, if not tonight 🙂 Thanks for your patience!

See ya Laterzzzzzzzz!!!!


June 18, 2008

Yeah, Yeah, I know, it’s the next day. But hey – I had a buncha shit to do! I got the boy’s pants made, but they really aren’t going to work, as they need an extra piece of material at the crotch to allow for ease of movement *sigh* I can’t seem to find a pattern for actual "Gi" pants, so I guess I’ll hafta break down and buy them. But on the bright side, I found a website where I can buy just the pants (or just the jacket) and I can get two pairs (including shipping) for less than the dojo wants for a new uniform (can’t buy the pieces separately from them…).

I really am on limited time, gotta do the whole "work" thing…ewwwww. But hey, gotta pay the bills somehow 😦

Now, where was I..? Oh yeah, Hunny needed a trim, too. Don’t get me wrong, I like my hunny to accompany me on outings, but…..he’s a guy. Guys want to go, get done & get back. While that sounds good in theory, the reality kinda sucks! Plus, him going meant we had to take the truck, ‘cuz my car was trashed (and I do mean trashed! I’m not sure how it happens, but I can never keep the damn thing clean!) Well, taking the truck made it kinda hard to get my oil changed, now didn’t it..? He also has an aversion to stores. All stores. When he needed a new axe for camping, I had to go to Lowes and get it. You would think a guy would love the opportunity to go wander a Lowes, but not my Hunny, nope, not happening! What that translated to was, we probably weren’t going to make it to Walgreen’s for Rx either.

So, we got the guys’ hair cut, I goy my watch adjusted, I got a new Aveeno (which by the way SUCKS! I am taking it back. I got some Biore, which seems to be a better choice, but that’s for a different post…), and looked at video games, for the Wii & the PS2. We ended up getting one for the boy, for the PS2.

Damn! Gotta go to work! will try to pick up from there, if we aren’t swarmed with phone calls….

See ya laterzzzzzzzzz!

Didja Miss me..?

June 17, 2008

Ok, I’ve been neglecting you again. I’m sorry. It’ll never happen again (please note the crossed fingers when this statement is made). Things have been a bit hectic, and I’ve been busy just trying to keep up. I had to work this past Saturday, and as Hunny went racing, the boy stayed with Aunt Missy & Ashley. I got out late (about 9:30ish) so I called when I got off to let them know I was on the way. They were having sound issues with the Wii (The surround wasn’t on…) which I corrected, then hung up. Then I had a brilliant idea. Let’s save Mommy some time on Sunday by doing grocery shopping tonight, without the boy! I called Ash back & asked if she could stay a bit longer so I could shop and she was good with it, so to Walmart I headed.

The one by the house is open now, so I didn’t have to go out of the way at all! Woohooo! I got a new watch, since my old one died (surprised it lasted as long as it did! Watches tend to have "issues" when they are anywhere near me – losing time, gaining time, stopping completely, losing time, then gaining it back. I’ve had them lose like 15 minutes, then when I take them off, they go back to the right time, or vise-versa, gain it, then go back to right when I take it off. Also, the ones that stop completely usually start back up within a day of me removing them…really weird stuffs). So anyway, I got a watch, got groceries, and as I was heading to the checkout, Hunny called. Apparently they went to the Speedrome here in Indy, rather than where they had originally planned, and were already heading home. (Hell, he ended up beating me home.) But it was all good, ‘cuz I didn’t have to haul groceries in by myself 🙂

So, the plan was to save time on Sunday, right? So I could not have to run around like a chicken with no head on Sunday, right? Whatever – like that’ll ever happen! My Sunday list included a haircut for my Duran Duran looking boy (did you see the hair in the pics from where he got his cast..?), get my oil changed, which I found out that day, courtesy of my hunny, meant I had to clean my car out because part of the service was vacuuming the car, picking up prescriptions, doing laundry (hard when you’re not home), having some links taken out of my new watch, because it was waaaaaaay too big, and required a little, bitty, teeny, tiny screwdriver (what happened to just popping out the pins, removing the links, and putting it back together? Oh yeah, that was too easy!), getting the Aveeno stuff I bought Saturday replaced, because it was no where to be found when I got home, and, at the last minute, taking hunny with, so he could get a haircut, too.

Well crap! My new fabric is dry, so I need to go iron & sew. My dandelion boy has already outgrown his Karate pants, so I am going to (attempt to) make him a new pair. I’ll be back, hopefully soon….

See ya laterzzzzzzzzzzz!

I Won ! I Won ! Well – I got 2nd anyways….

June 13, 2008

Hey All! Just popping in for a minute or two, as I am actually on my way to bed. But I wanted to share. I know it’s off-topic here, but after the last week, week and a half that I’ve had, I just got some good news. Over at Hey! It’s Free, Goob had a contest. You had to use Google Maps, and locate a bunch of stuff, then send him the link to the picture of it. Many of the items were pretty obscure, and there were like 50 things. He says no one found them all (even though I thought I did :(   ), but I came in 2nd just the same! I actually won $25. For basically playing on the computer! I did have to reboot and frequently empty my temporary files, ‘cuz all the pics are cached, and can kinda slow things down, but it was really fun. And I love a good challenge (as I’m sure Tom, over at Tom’s Hideaway can attest to!)

If you like a deal (and who doesn’t..?) you should go check his blog out. I’ve signed up for quite a few of the offers, and most of the stuff has come rolling in. Plus I won $25! It looks like he does contests fairly regularly, so go check it out, maybe you’ll win the next one *grin*

Besides, Hey! It’s Free!

Going to bed now. G’Night!
