The Mean Mom

Just ask my 7 year old, he'll tell you. Don't believe him? Ask my 14 year old, if she still leaves you in doubt, my 17 year old can confirm it too.

Swiped this from Lara's blog...

too funny... I've had people tell me that I don't have an "accent" or that I sound like I've lived here in Bawlmer all my life...

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

I've heard this a lot lately. Traci is "smitten" with Mark. Well, the guy did just help her cut a Ton and a Half of firewood, and is building her a garage, I might be smitten by that too...

This girl is smitten with her kitchen. If I could make mushroom caps like that, I would be smitten too...

Are you "smitten"? I am... But not because my man is building me a garage while making mushroom caps... He did the ultimate "Honey, I love you more now than ever" thing. Lemme explain....

When I met hubby, he wouldn't push the grocery cart if I put in "girly stuff". Eventually we moved up. He would push the cart, but he wouldn't put them up on the checkout belt. Now we're at the point where he will even put them in the cart.

Last night, he did something that made me love him more than I have loved any other man. He bought me this. All by himself. I asked him to pick it up while he was at the store, and he did.

So, yes. I am smitten. It didn't take mushroom caps, or a garage. Just a little tube of cream. I love my hubby.

Sheesh... see what happens when people can't play nice?

Because Spammers suck, I'm making it so you have to be a blogger member to comment... not that any of you lurkers ever comment.

If I still get spammed, I'll have to go to the icky word verification thingy.

Thanks for the heads up Traci, while I would love to make an easy $800.00, I don't need the scam artists to help me.

For Sale, Slightly Obnoxious Children...

Oh, wait, that could get me in trouble couldn't it? Ok, I was only kidding. I wouldn't really sell them. (Psst... email me ok? I'll fill you in on the cost...)

The last week has been a bit crazy. Here's how it goes....

The boy has been fighting some cold or something. He's been back and forth with a stuffy head, slight cough, and sometimes a "froggy" voice. The Health Department was in the schools giving the FluMist stuff... I signed him up, and then I called the school the day of since he woke up stuffy... they asked me a couple questions, and gave it to him, so I guess he's not that bad. I know he doesn't feel well though, cause he's been whiney, and clingy. Ugh....

The middle one, She's making me crazy. Huge Spanish class project, lots of stuff needed (7 candles, silk flowers, boxes, and skeletons) that she tells me about on a Friday, and says, "Oh, I need all that by Monday." Right. Then after running around like crazy, I find out it's a group project! Wonder what the rest of her group is going to do if we're buying everything... Grrrr.

The oldest one? Yeah, she's bugging me too. She called out of work... the one day a week that she works, and she called out. Sheesh... Then, she calls me from a friends, and tells me that she's going to the movies and that I needed to pick them up after. Um.. not gonna happen. I have stuff to do... clearing out a book case so we can move the bookcase out of the living room.... We're finally painting it! WOO HOO! Don't ask me what color yet... We haven't decided. LOL! So she was all pissy. When she came home (after one of the other parents brought her home), we had a discussion on how that would have gone if she had a little respect... ARGH!

The dog? Yeah, I think I might sell her too... She has decided that it would fun to sit in the living room window. I didn't mind her standing on the couch to look out, but sitting. In the window. all the way in the window. Oh... and that stealing food off the table in the kitchen is also acceptable. Yeah, this is the same dog that the trainer said was a "model Student". HA!

Maybe I'm just a bit touchy since I'm PMSing.... where's the chocolate? Ask me next week, I'll let you know if I'm still selling...

Tagged, but took me a while...

Cherie tagged me, but it's taken me a while to get to it... The tag was 10 Random Things about Me.

1. I think it's time for me to look for a new job, but I'm afraid if I get one, they won't like me or whatever, and it won't work out.

2. In the winter, I hate when my feet get cold, so I sleep in socks. Sexy, huh?

3. I have really dry skin, but I hate moisturizers, so I never use them.

4. I really want to lose some weight, but I'm too lazy to exercise, and don't want to watch what I eat.

5. I tend to blame the not watching what I eat on the kids... it would mean they would have to eat what I was eating, and they are picky... see?

6. I sometimes think that if I get divorced again, I could get back with StupidX and the difficulties would be over with the kids.

7. I know I'm stupid to even slightly think about that stuff.

8. I really, really want another baby. Ok, I'm over it... for now.

9. I want to go back to school.

10. I'm afraid if I go back to school, I'll fail.

So, there, 10 very random (yet surprisingly intimate) things about me.

I could tag anyone that hasn't done it yet, and I think I will... if you are reading this, and you want to do this, go for it.
