Wednesday, June 27, 2007 got me thinking

Jamie got me to thinking...I know, a dangerous thing, considering my condition, but hey, sometimes it's worth it. lol

She got me thinking about summers as a kid. What we used to do. How we used to play. The innocence of it all.

I so wish for times like that for my kids. To be able to go out, and know every single one of your neighbors. Even the ones a mile up the road. To not have to worry about pedophiles, or freaky people. To be able to go out in the woods and build forts, and clubhouses, and ride your bikes for miles and not worry about getting hit by cars. To climb trees and dig holes and not worry about black widows, and desert snakes. lol. It actually makes me sad. I remember the flowers, like the honeysuckles, that we'd pick and stick in our mouths. The wild blackberries that we'd pick by the bucket fulls, and then take home to put in our morning cereal. The wild rhubarb that we'd pick and eat. The corn we'd pick from the field to have for dinner that night. The pumpkins we'd pick from Grandpa's patch to carve for Halloween. Gosh, I could go on and on.

The funny thing, all we did was bitch and complain back then.

"Mom, I'm Bored!!!"

"Mom, there's nothing to do!"

"Mom, can we come in and watch TV??"

And the answer was always..

"No, go find something to do!"

And then the door would be closed, and sometimes, even locked! lol

Things can never be the way they used to can they? Things were so easy.

Well, I must go off and tuck my little one into bed. I hope everyone has a great summer!

Lovin It!

Don't you just love those stores that sell every kind of fireworks known to man?

Don't you just love the smell of blown up M60's?

Don't you just love the thought of being sneaky and doing something bad that you shouldn't?

Don't you just love it when you get butterflies in your stomach because you know you are getting away with something?

ME? Nah, I don't love any of those things.....*snicker snicker*

I would never, EVER, go to a store in Vegas and stock up on 80 bucks worth of illegal fireworks!

I also would never incriminate myself in any way, shape or form!

So, I advise you kids out there to never do anything illegal, or incriminate yourselves!

This was my public service announcement!

Sipping on Gin and Juice

Well technically it's not gin and juice, but rather Kahlua and Bailey's, but hey beggars can't be choosers.

Sitting here contemplating whether I even want to get into the kind of day today has been.

Went to the home inspection of the new house. Let's just say we knew of allot of things that would need to be fixed up and spruced up and such, but I didn't realize just how much work really is going to need to be done. Yeah it'll be a work in progress, I know, but still it kind of gets my panties in a wad. The inspector was great. Luckily, the first hour or so we were there it was just us and him. No homeowners. But then the guy came home, and our open talking kind of went out the door. The inspector was very good at giving us pointers here and there, and kind of telling us "off the record" what should be done. So now that that is done, and the appraisal is done, and all the other inspections, now we just wait for the listings to come back to us, telling us what has to be fixed and what is suggested to be fixed. I guess we'll see. And the homeowner was very adamant on letting us know he was losing money on the deal. Especially since with the loan being a VA loan, they are very strict on things that need to be done. Things I guess, he didn't expect to have to do. Well let me tell you, he can shove it up his ass, cause if the shit needs to be done, he isn't going to screw us out of something that is potentially dangerous to us in the near future.

Oh well. Enough said.

Still trying to figure out a way to get my kids some sparklers for the 4th. That's right. Here in good old To Hot Shit Hole, anything but those stupid poppers are deemed illegal. I guess being out in the desert, fire safety is big, so they restrict everything. But let me ask... What the hell is there to burn here? We are in the middle of the fricken desert. There isn't shit but sand and tumbleweeds. lol. Oh well, we are thinking maybe a trip to Vegas is in order. We'll take the risk of getting busted at the agricultural station between here and there just to let our kids have some sort of fun on the 4th. Next year though, I am ordering them online and getting them ahead of time. Even though there is the chance of them being confiscated in the mail. Or so I am told. lol. What a bummer.

OK, that is all I have to gripe about for now. Ta ta Everyone!

Brain Dead

That's right my friends, I believe I have officially shut down. The brain is dead. Gone. Finished. Down the tubes. Smushed animal on the side of the road kind of dead. Summer vaca has just started, and I am already to move into my new home. The mental institute down the street. Whining, screaming, hitting, fighting. If you don't hear from me soon, please, feel free to do nothing. Because more then likely I have run away. But thanks for caring just the same.

What's wrong with this picture?

Ok, who the hell taught my kids manners? I thought I did, but evidentally not. I refuse to give in to the demands of a 3 yr. old. "Mama, give me juice!" , "Mama, I want crackers!", "Mama, I WANT JUICE!!"

Do you know what my response is to this???

"Shut Up"

Not yelling, not screaming, just a non-shalant

"Shut up"

Is that bad? lol

So then he says....

"Nicely Mama!"

He says this because I always tell him I wont get him squat until he asks for things nicely. So that is what he says.

"But I said Nicely Mama!"

"No Crazy, you have to ask me Please, and say Thank you, not say Nicely"

Man, my kid is a Butthead!

Another question, is is bad to try to purposely embarass your 9 year old and then get a big kick out of it when it is accompished? Girly is at the age where she is
really embarrassed by
being around her parents. And we take full advantage of this situation. Especially when we are at Walmart or out and about in town. We will act like total idiots just to embarrass the heck out of her. She gets all red faced and angry. lol. Usually we only do this when she gets snotty, or cocks an attitude towords us about something. I feel it is just our way of showing the girl love! lol

Road Trip

Because I am cool, I am going to torture you all with what Bossy likes to call "picture vomit".

Yesterday we took a little road trip. Just for the hell of it. Although fun, I must say I wanted to strangle the children by the end of the night.

This is Hubs and me. Aren't we sweet?

And nobody can ever say that my kids don't contribute to nature. See here, that's Girly and her puddle. Yep, nothing but the best for my kids. If they have to take a leak, by golly, pop a squat!

And this is Crazy's contribution. I know, gross. But hell, when you are potty training your kid, you don't hesitate to pull out the porta potty you carry in your van and let your kid take a dump on the side of the road.

And because I am really cool, I am going to give you all a peep show. This, ladies and gents is my.....

BEAVER! She is soft, furry and loves to be touched!! hehehehehe Hubs loves to play with my beaver!

Holy shit....gas got under 3.00!

And it was HOT!

And we drove this far.....

To get to one of these!!!No, not the lady but....

That's right, Sonic!! Do you know how long it's been since I have had Sonic? Since we lived in Lejeune! Yes, to damn long to go without Sonic!

And here is me enjoying my yummy Cherry Limeade!

And here is my beaver enjoying his tots!

1 Place to Never take Children

If I could give one piece of advice right now to all you bloggers out there it would be...

Never, ever, ever, even if your life depends on it, take your children to a loan office with you to sign new home paperwork.

Holy Crap. Yesterday was a long day.

Hubs and I had to go the loan office to sign a shitload of paperwork for the new home loan we are acquiring.

Needless to say, we had to take the boys.

For the 3 hours we sat in that office it was nothing but screaming, whining, cheerio throwing, sippy cup throwing, "Momma, I have to PEEEEEE" yelling, "Momma, I'm thirsty" yelling, "Momma, I want a ice qweeem cone" yelling, 2 poop accidents, 5 trips to the potty, 1 trip out to the car to get extra diapers, and numerous high pitched screams coming from Baby Boy who evidently didn't think it was fair that Big Brother got to get out of the stroller and he didn't!

Yeah, my advice when doing new home paperwork. Leave the kids at home. Even if you don't have a sitter, strap them into their highchairs and run. No, just kidding. But at least find a sitter. lol

It is sooo windy here. You can't even see the mountains due to the enormous amount of dust and sand blowing around. It does a real number on your car. Let me tell you. And your hair. Does wonders for your teeth though. It's like an all natural teeth cleaning. Although it feels like you have been eating clams for a bit.

Oh and I have come to the conclusion that 3 yr. olds are greatly influenced by older children. So if you are babysitting a pain in the ass, 7 yr. old that talks back, hits people, doesn't listen, and throws frozen pizzas that you are getting ready to put in the oven for lunch onto your freshly vacuumed living room floor, then the 3 yr. old is going to follow suit. Note to self: Don't babysit that 7 yr. old EVER again!

Monday, June 04, 2007


No new updates on the house. Waiting for the VA to call to start paperwork. Waiting for inspections and appraisals on the property. Still comparing homeowners insurance prices. Doing allot of shit, but don't seem to be getting anywhere! And yes, stupid me is already shopping for new house stuff. Need to stop that!
