Celebrating Women...for the Real World
Wednesday, January 31, 2007 Attention All Germs. Leave My House...NOW....or...

I will stab you in the neck!

Two people in my house are horking. Two have soar throats. Fever is included for no extra charge. Two missed school yesterday. Ugh! I'm tired of the sickness.

My can of Lysol and I have a date this weekend. If it's not breathing, it will be bleached, lysoled, burned, and whatever else I can think of. I can't like this!

Needless to say, I think my weigh-in will be disastrous tomorrow. I feel bloated and grumpy and the damn scale at my house hasn't moved! I yeah, and Aunt Flo is in the area and will be stopping by any day now.

I hope it's a wee bit sunny this weekend. I will open those doors & windows and air out the house. I think I'll be replacing pillows this weekend as well!

Hope the yuck bug hasn't made its way to you guys! Stay healthy!

Tuesday, January 30, 2007 Tickle Tuesday....and other stuff!

THE OTHER STUFF...

Sheri is on another rampage and wants to stab people in the neck again. Work is getting to her and she might just stab an attorney in the neck.

I got drunk dialed this weekend and the ladies just cracked me up. They probably don't remember too much of the conversation so I figure I would elaborate on the subject.


Things to look forward to when your kids are older (high school):

  • More sleep (unless your waiting up for them to beat curfew)
  • More sex (because you can't afford to go out)
  • Empty pocketbook (especially their Senior year)
  • Empty refrigerator (they will eat you out of house and home)
  • You retire as a chauffeur :)
  • You cook less (because they will run up to Sonic and not eat your food)
  • Less laundry (they should do their own)
  • The house stays clean (they are never there)
  • You now develop selective hearing (they are always asking for money)
  • Your kids act more and more like adults
  • You act more and more like a kid
  • You can say "Get a job" and really mean it!

Thursday, January 25, 2007 Update & Shit

What a busy two days. Yesterday I left work early to take my dear daughter to the ENT specialist. I don't know if you all remember, but two weeks ago she went to the doctor and had strep throat. Doctor 1 looked into daughters throat and said her tonsils were quite swollen. Daughter told them she had her tonsils out when she was four (she's 16 now). Doctor then proceeded to make weird faces and sounds and called another doctor in to look. Doctor 2 basically said "ewe, what is that!". They then called nurse to look. Pretty soon, the whole floor was coming in to look at daughter's throat. Guess what this supposed "growth" turned out to be....lingual tonsils! Ha! Apparently everyone has two sets of tonsils. The ones commonly removed starts with a P. The lingual tonsils are not easily seen as they are on the back part of the tongue. Apparently daughter has an innate ability to open her mouth wide-very wide (shut it). That with the fact that she had lingual tonsillitis made them very visible. In fact, she still has lingual tonsillitis!

What does all this shit mean? It means that daughter does not have some weird disease in her mouth and, as long as the tonsillitis clear up, she'll be fine!

First thing this morning I had to go to the endodontist to get this tooth checked out that's needed a root canal for the last 3 years (yeah, I procrastinate). Guess what, now it's not one tooth, but three! Yippee! And, he won't due them until I get a mouth guard and wear it for 2 months. Apparently I grind my teeth...a lot! Then he asked if I am stressed. Ha! What a question. Look at me, can't you tell? Guess not. So, back to dentist #1 to pay him $1000 to make my mouth guard so that I can go back to dentist 2 and pay him like a million dollars to fix my teeth.

I did get dentist #2 to laugh. On his form he has you fill out, there is a question about dental procedures and which ones you don't like and why. I answered "root canals" and for why and said "cause they cost too much"! He thought that was funny!

Wednesday, January 24, 2007 Rain, Rain...Go Away

It seems that it has been raining forever here. Big G is about ready to start construction on an Ark. I'm ready for some sun and decent hair days.


Oh and with this bad weather look what I saw when I walked into the living room. Yeah...the one that is not allowed on the couch.

Tuesday, January 23, 2007 Tickle Tuesday


Last Tuesday we were stabbing people in the neck. This week we thought we'd bring the lighter side back to our blog. So, since it's not Monday, and it's not Humpday, it must be Tickle Tuesday. Tickle Tuesday is our attempt to make you smile and your week go a little smoother. Feel free to post a Tickle Tuesday on your blog and drop us a note so that we can come by and visit!

Enjoy!


THREE WOMEN IN A SAUNA


Three women, two younger, and one senior citizen were sitting naked in a sauna. Suddenly there was a beeping sound. The young woman pressed her forearm and the beep stopped. The others looked at her questioningly.

"That was my pager," she said. "I have a microchip under the skin of my arm."

A few minutes later, a phone rang. The second young woman lifted her palm to her ear. When she finished, she explained, "That was my mobile phone. I have a microchip in my hand."

The older woman felt very low tech. Not to be out done, she decided she had to do something just as impressive. She stepped outside of the sauna and went to the bathroom. She returned with a piece of toilet paper hanging from her rear end. The others raised their eyebrows and stared at her. The older woman finally said....


Are you ready.......


"Well will you look at that..I'm getting a fax!"

Monday, January 22, 2007 Monday Recap

Well, it turned out to be a busy weekend. Big G went on a "survival" campout so a girly night was in order. It turned out to be Carrie, Sheri and I but it was fun.



Sheri was set loose to make the drinks again; even Carrie's eyes widened/watered when she tried one. My inner pyro was so disapointed, because of the rain, we had to abandon the fire pit idea (darn it).
.

After Carrie left, Sheri hijacked my computer. Here she is having three IM conversations (I think she's hooked).


On Sunday we had a family dinner to celebrate Gary's 18th birday and look who he brought:

This is the first time we have met her and I must say she was brave, coming and meeting us, his aunt and unckle, his grandmother and family friends. G2 does have good taste in women don't you think?

SOMEONE'S HAVING A BIRTHDAY!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TAMMY!




We hope you have a wonderful birthday!

Sheri and I had the pleasure of meeting Tammy back at the Austin Blogger Blowout and then again at the Dallas Blowout. Tammy is funny, witty and a great person to know. She also made it OK for all of us to express how much we hate people.

Tammy, we can't wait to see you in April and if anyone tries to keep you from coming...we'll just have to stab them in the neck!

Thursday, January 18, 2007 Back to Work - Yuck

The worse part of a snow day - going back to school/work. It's even more difficult when you hate your job and you dislike the person you work for.

My husband told me that I could quit. We would have to tighten our belts a little, but we would get by. Why don't I quit? I mean, I'm absolutely miserable. You'd think it would be easy to say "See ya" and flash them my middle finger on the way out. But it's not. Why? Here is what the little voices in my head are telling me:

"Remember when your husband was rushed to ER and they ended up having to do open heart surgery? Remember that? Remember him not being able to work for a long time, then, when finally getting back into the swing of things he was hired at about 1/3 of the salary he used to make? Yeah-and you, miss "stay at home mom", yeah, what kind of credibility did YOU have when you had to go back to work? That's right, a 50% salary cut because you hadn't been in the "work force" for a year." Why do people think staying at home and raising a family is not work?

and.....

"You have teenagers you dumb fool. Teenagers that will be starting college next year. And another the year after! What the Fluck are you thinking? Oh, that's right-you're not thinking."

and.....

"You'll have to ASK your hubs for money for ANYTHING you want to do! You are too controlling to live like that!"

See? See what I'm dealing with? All very good arguments. I know, a normal person would find a job before quitting. Here's the problem. I am very busy at work. I don't have time to search ads, submit resumes, go on interviews. That's all very time consuming. I'd like to quit first and take time to find what I want. Unfortunately, if you attempt to find a job when you are not working, you become less desirable and usually will be offered a position at a reduced salary compared to what you would have been offered if currently employed. Employers think the unemployed interviewee is desperate. If you go in and say "this is my salary range", then you are considered "cocky" and that would be the reason why you are not currently employed.

Do ya feel my pain?

Wednesday, January 17, 2007 Snow Day...Because SFG Said So!

Did you read SuZan's post below? Funny huh! I got that call too. The bad part-by 5:50 a.m. I've already showered. Yes, I was sitting in my bath robe with wet hair yelling at the TV begging them to announce our district as one that would close! I live about 40 minutes north of where my office is located. That's north as in "it's flucking cold" north! Our high school is located ON the freeway that they were considering closing because of a 9 car and 15 car pile up on the freeway-NEAR THE SCHOOL THAT MY KIDS WERE TO DRIVE THEMSELVES TO! Right!


So the call came. Yes! Now I had to decide, do I dry my hair, get dressed and be the "dedicated employee" they think I am? Can I get a HELL NO! I really hate my job. I don't like the person I work for. He's greedy. I won't go on because you never know who may come across this blog. But, I can't like working there. That made my decision easier. I dried my hair (one must have good hair. You never know who may come to visit). I made a fresh pot of coffee. I sat my as down on the couch. I haven't moved. Well, I moved when I had to pee. SuZan called. I told her how guilty I felt for calling in and telling them I couldn't make it. I think she would have hit me over the head had she been closer!
She read SFG's comment to me. SFG told us-no housework, no nothing. Sit our asses on the sofa, eat good food, and watch movies or daytime TV. I am so good at following directions. Wanna see? Let me draw you a picture:


Old sweatshirt-no bra! Check

Old Sweatpants - no panties! Check

Laptop - Check

Zune-Check

Warm Blankie - Check

Fire Place on - Check

Cell phone - Check

Coffee-Check

Puppy Cuddling on my feet - Check


Yup. Got all bases covered. Now, if Domino's delivers today, we will have all bases covered.
Ha, I just looked over and saw this!

Hubs and Oreo thoroughly enjoying their snow day! Classic!

I'm feeling a little bit sleeping. I think this would be an excellent time for a nap! Enjoy your day!

SNOW DAY!

Schools are closed. I don't have to get up and get ready and yet...I'm wide awake. That's just not right. At 6:00 am we get a recorded message from the school district that due to the inclement weather, the district is closed. That it all nice that they would do that for students and parents, but the recorded message WAS IN SPANISH! Does that mean that the district is closed only if you are Hispanic and/or bilingual? Thank goodness I speak Spanish or I might be getting ready for work.
.

I did go outside to see what it was like. I donned my big fluffy robe, my warm fuzzy slippers and braved the elements with camera in hand. Wouldn't you know that I got as far as my car, clicked a picture and ran back in...it is cold people.
.
As you can see, my car is covered in ice. This is Houston, we don't do this well.

Tuesday, January 16, 2007 HAPPY BIRTHDAY G2!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!


The thought that my baby is now 18 totally floors me in so may ways. I can't believe that the time went by so fast. I can't believe that I didn't kill him throughout the years. I can't believe that you can love someone so much yet want to hurt them sometimes. He is no longer my kid, my child, my baby; he is a man.


By all accounts he was an easy child to raise. Yes we had our challenges and obstacles, but he mostly has made good choices and learned from the mistakes.


He is my son and I love him but what has surprised me is the fact that I really like the person that he has become throughout the years. I enjoy talking to him and learning about his take on the world. Though part of me is a little sad that this era is coming to an end, I'm excited about the next part that life has for him.



Happy Birthday G2!
.
May you find your purpose and happiness in your adulthood.
.
I love you,
Mom
.
.
As of 8:30 PM, January 15, 2007
it's official:
.
The Eagle has landed!
Congratulations G2; you are officially an Eagle Scout!
.
~~~~~~~~~~
On an other note:
It is so cold here! We just are not used to this mess, soooo the message for all the Dallas B*tches whom sent us this wonderful weather:
.
...TAKE. IT. BACK!

Monday, January 15, 2007 Waste of Space Monday!

Friday, January 12, 2007 Stuff Portrait Friday!



OK, so we have another week with no SPF assignment. TKW is going to go nuts having to think of things to ramble on and on and on about (she said it...not me). So, she is unofficially (and completely without permission) hi-jacking SPF this week. Her assignment….should we choose to accept it is:


1. A houseplant (or something of similar intelligence)
2. Something you secretly enjoy but bitch about anyway
3. Something gross...the grosser the better, I say...



MY HOUSEPLANT
This is my one and only living plant in the house. As much as I have abused it, it lives on. Poor plant has to droop all it’s leaves before it hits me that I do need to water it from time to time. When it’s nice and hydrated it looks great.

SOMETHING I ENJOY
(but bitch about anyway)
Oh that has to be Zeus. He keeps trying to get at Mercedes’ litter box and picking out some h'orderves. He is soooooooo smart, and yet, he eats cat poo.



SOMETHING GROSS

Oh that would be said litter box. I need to get one like Carries' (her cats'....STOP IT) that will clean itself. Now we all know that TKW will be able to top us all with the "Something Gross" pictures. We all know she has dirty diaper pictures...I've seen them!

~~~~~~~~~~

Since this week is National De-lurking week, feel free to de-lurk and say "hi!"

~~~~~~~~~~

So tell us…did you play?

Thursday, January 11, 2007 FOOTBALL IS DONE!

This season seemed to go on forever! Last night marked the end as we had our football awards dinner. It was fun, exciting and a little sad.


The boys had a fantastic season and we couldn't be more proud of them.






Sheri's son M is in the orange shirt. He had an awesome season as our starting center. He also won Offensive Line, Second Team ALL DISTRICT! M will probably play in college and I will be right there with Sheri cheering him on as if he were my own.



G2 is in the blue striped shirt (OK...his friend next to him is 6 foot gazillion). He played Right Guard and was the self proclaimed Star Player for the Sideline Warriors. G2 hit us with a surprise that the coaches awarded him with an internship with the Houston Texans! I about fell over!

Even though this is a little sad that it is all coming to an end, both boys have an exciting future ahead of them. I. AM. SO. PROUD. of them both!

GO BOBCATS!

THANK YOU FOR AN EXCITING SEASON!

Wednesday, January 10, 2007 What Happens In Vegas.......



I got these yesterday delivered to my office. They're from hubs. He reads the blog, so he knew what kind of day/week I was having.

I sent him an email thanking him. He is a great guy and would do something like send me flowers when I'm having a bad day. But in reality, who else thought the flowers were sent because of the following:

1. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas (He's been there for the CES and a meeting with Microsoft. He met Mr. Gates and actually had the opportunity to chat with him)

OR

2. He lost his ass gambling!

OR

3. He spent a shit-ton of money buying new toys at the convention! He did say he was going to send a big box full of stuff!

Most likely, he sent them because he loves me! Thank you honey! I won't stab you in the neck!

Tuesday, January 09, 2007 A Raging Rant.....Because It Feels So Good

Day five of hubs being out of town. Yes, the stress of it is getting to me. Whatever could go wrong, has gone wrong. Please forgive me while I vent. Your sympathy will be much appreciated. And Carrots! Carrots will be appreciated too. (I usually ask for cookies, but this Weight Watchers stuff won't let me eat the whole pack. So why bother with just one)!

I must join Tammy & SFG - those bitches taught me how to rant....and stab people in the neck:

  • To the doctor, heck, the whole staff at Kelsey-Seybold. When my sixteen year old daughter comes in sick (with strep); don't look in her throat and say "Ewe, what is that? You have some kind of growth on your throat/tongue!" Not reassuring. Further, don't call your entire staff in to take a look! If you do this again........I will stab you in the neck.
  • To the Toll Road people-Look, I spend $25 a week for the "convenience" of using your road. Since December 22nd, the damn arm in the EZ tag lane has either refused to go up or has come crashing down on me or the car in front of me. Then, as we sit there honking our horns for your attendant, don't ignore us! Push the damn button so that the arm will go up. It's not rocket science. Do this......or I will stab you in the neck.
  • To the Office Depot truck who cut me off then slowed below the speed limit, don't do this.....or I will stab you in the neck!
  • To Verizon Wireless-I give you like a million dollars a month. My husband has this phone that will do everything including wipe his ass if he asks. Problem-it does everything but makes and receive calls! Seriously, EVERY.SINGLE.TIME! Doesn't matter if he is sending or receiving calls-service sucks! Calls are dropped! Fix it.....or I will stab you in the neck!
  • To the vet. You've taken care of our dog since he was like 8 weeks old. You've been treating him for this damn ear infection since November 17th. I've paid you about a million dollars. He is scratching his ear and whining....AGAIN! Fix his ear.......or I may stab you in the neck!
  • To Blogger-don't dick with me when I'm writing a "rant" type post.....or I will stab you in the neck.
  • To the woman in the white car that was in front of me this morning. I admire that you want to leave a car length between you and the car in front. Three car lengths is unreasonable. I get in the lane we were in because it's not a turning lane. Move it or lose it! You are the reason I had to sit through the light as you crawled through it when it turned yellow. Green means go! In Texas that mean go...fast! Move it....or I will stab you in the neck!
  • To the mother of a certain child. Don't talk about him to us in front of him and tell all of us that he has to go to a psychiatrist because he's crazy. Stop mentally and verbally abusing him! That's as bad as physical abuse! Stop......or I'll stab you in the neck!

OK, feeling better now. Um, if you are new to this blog, we really don't stab people in the neck. Instead, we cut their hearts out! Just kidding.

Monday, January 08, 2007 Waste of Space Monday


Welcome to "Waste of Space Monday" brought to you by our favorite "people hater" Tammy who would stab people in the neck if it were legal.

This weeks waste of space would be me! Yes folks, me. I am convinced that I'm a total waste of space! Why? Sit down and grab coffee; and a tissue. Actually, maybe no coffee because you may spit it all over the screen when you get to the end of the story.

See, I'm this dedicated employee and stuff (read-stupid). Those of you who chose accounting as your career will totally relate to this. It's end of year/beginning of year crunch time. We can't move forward with some things until several of last year's issues are brought to fruition. Hence, weekend work is more or less required. So, I come in yesterday (Sunday). I'm working all hard and shit. I was about to undertake a project that required a start to finish environment. Of course I had to pee. I decide that this would be a fabo time to "take care of business".

The problem you ask? Our office suite is very secure as a lot of people we deal with don't like us. The doors lock when you leave. Re-entry must occur through the receptionist's door. You see where I'm going with this? Sunday-no receptionist to let one back in to the office. Yup, miss shit for brains ran across the hall and just as the back door closed, realized that not only is her suite key on the other side of that closed door, so is her purse, car keys, building access card, and cell phone!

No problem I think. There were cars in the parking lot. Certainly someone will be in the building and will let me use their phone to call the emergency number or one of my employees who lives fairly close. Twenty-four doors I knock on; not one answer!

Thinking, thinking-yes-my aunt lives within walking distance. I shit you not-two minutes away. So I exit the building. Yup, now I'm not only locked out of the suite, but the entire building! The thought then occurs to me "What if Aunt isn't home?" Shit, I walk-briskly! Heart racing! Yes! She's home! Poor thing must have thought the worse. Me out of breath, her not expecting me, me saying "phone". I didn't explain until I called the emergency number!

Thank Bob I brought our building maintenance man cookies for Christmas. As soon as the management company called him, he called me at the number I left and started laughing! Thankfully he lives only 10 minutes away!

There you have it ladies and gentlemen. The reason why I have chosen myself to be today's Waste of Space!

Thursday, January 04, 2007 Fug Thursday and a Stupid Moment


Welcome to Fug Thursday, brought to you by the lovely Kami, where we show you the fashion nos, to keep you in the fashion know.

Now this is my first time playing and I have to tell you that I didn't follow the rules because I'm fugging a truck.

Big G, G2 and I were headed up to my favorite store (Target) and I saw this truck in the parking lot and of course I shouted out "OMG that truck has balls" (um-k, they both just looked at me). But look...the truck has BALLS!


This is just wrong on so many levels.




Now for your entertainment pleasure...

The Stupid Moment:

.
We stopped in to Famous Footwear after Target because I have been wanting to get some nice, comfortable, trouser shoes. Found a pair that were very comfy, about 1.5 inch heal, soft leather. In other words it met all of the requirements for the footzees.

Now visualize this...I'm walking around in these shoes, contemplating if I would be able to chase after kids in them, I turned around...and wiped out!

I kid you not...twisted my ankle; landed on my left knee; scraped my right palm; just a total W I P E O U T! And what do you think this logical, cautionary, therapist did? Hell, jump right up and look around to make sure no one saw me.

.

Yep...that's what I did.

.

Pass the ibuprofen please...

.

Oh and I did buy the shoes.

Wednesday, January 03, 2007 Way Back Wednesday!


TKW wants to see our bad habits. I had this picture on the computer so I thought I would play today.

"And the rum is for all your good vices" -J. Buffett...

Good or bad, let's see those vices, you know the things you shouldn't have been doing but did anyway? Smoking, using a pacifier, drinking, dancing on a bar...



I know I had it good! I got to travel...A LOT! Left the country every six months and when I would get my pictures back my mom would always complain that "I always had a cigarette in my hand and a drink in front of me".


Sadly, I would look through all the pictures I would notice that she was right....sigh.

Tuesday, January 02, 2007 Tickle Tuesday....and other stuff!

Happy New Year everyone
.


A guy is driving around Tennessee and he sees a sign in front of ahouse that says: "Talking Dog For Sale."

He rings the bell and the owner tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a Labrador Retriever sitting there.

"You talk?" he asks.

"Yes, I do," the Lab replies.

"So, what's your story?"

The Lab looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when Iwas pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA about my gift, and in no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running. But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals. I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired.

"The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wantsfor the dog.
"Ten bucks," the guy says.

."Ten dollars? This dog is amazing.
Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?"

"Because he's a liar. He never did any of that shit."

The animals are now at least tolerating each other. I walked in the living room and Zeus was in Big G's man chair and Mercedes in my spot. Hey, at least I finially got a shot of both of them in the picture.

Monday, January 01, 2007 Don't Drink........and stand?


Happy New Year!

Hard to believe that another one bites the dust. We actually had a very nice New Year at Sheri's. I was designated photographer and I think I failed miserably. Sheri was actually measuring instead of guesstimating with the drinks so I was able to stay vertical. Our blogger bitch Carrie came over for a little while (and did I get a picture...um NO). I did get a few random shots:


As you can see, our friend had way. too. much to drink (Carrie we forgot to place the empty bottle, but he is donning a party hat).

.

And here we have Mr. jkOnTheRun getting us ready to ring in the New Year.



Ok...I know!

This is my failed attempt at a creative shot.

Just. shut. it!



That is about it....Oh don't forget to watch the Rose Bowl today. Must start brisket.

GO BLUE!
