Disaster Movies meet the Real World 16

Disaster Movies meet the Real World

1:00am this morning – Wake up to tornado sirens. Since we saw Day After Tomorrow on Saturday, my first thought is “Oh Shit. If I look out that window and see multiple tornadoes, I’m going to crap all over myself”. Look out window, no wind, no rain, and no nothing indicating bad weather. Turn on TV, while fearing seeing footage of tsunamis washing over the Statue of Liberty. Damn that movie! 1:15 – Sirens turn off, but tornado warning still active. Still no rain. No car-size hail Damn that movie! Go back to sleep. 1:30 – Shoot out of bed...

Takin’ One for the Team. 17

Takin’ One for the Team.

You know – I own a lot of cheap-ass furniture. Seven years in college (Three as a single mom) leaves you only one option: Shit-board furniture. Or hand-me-downs. Or streetcorner steals. Or yard-sale finds. And now that I have a good paying 9-5 job and a working husband, well, then things like this happen. This is my son’s bookshelf that collapsed ON MY DAMN HEAD. Yeah – there are usually 3 other shelves, but they ALL chose to fall on my head one day when I was putting stuff up. So – I did the best I could by stacking...

Rainy Saturday 6

Rainy Saturday

I woke up this morning kinda pumped and ready to GET. THINGS. ACCOMPLISHED. Do you do that? Wake up with your list of things to do already in place in your brain and motivated to check them all off before lunchtime? Thats how I was. I wanted to get all my chores done before lunch so I could have two days to be reaaaallllyyyyy lazy. Vacuum. Bathrooms. Mopping. Dusting. Pack LilZoot for camp. Teach myself more about blog skins. Walk the dogs. Groceries. Shower. Pedicure… Then, I saw it was raining. And I havent done shit since. I’ve been up...

Ah..The Joy of Pets

Isnt my floating candle bowl so pretty? See the green leaf candles? And the green stones? Ahh… I love it so. What? What did you say? You said there’s something missing? Oh – is there supposed to be WATER in there? I wondered why the candles were never floating. Jeez. Unless – wait – I DID put water in there. I think I filled that damn bowl up this morning. And the day before that. And the freakin’ 100 days before that. But for some DAMN reason, my cats think its their water bowl. And yes – they have perfectly...

Friday Bullets: I Cant Hear You. 24

Friday Bullets: I Cant Hear You.

The swelling along my jaw and neck has gone down – thank GOD. Swollen neck and jaw? Does wonders for my already low self-esteem. 65 people ended up here by searching for “Maroon5″ in the last month. I love that. I’ll take the Maroon 5 fans over the person/people who keep getting here searching for “About my breasts and should I massage them?”. FOUR times that search phrase has brought someone here. FOUR. TIMES. If you are asking me? I say – Go for it – massage away – and leave my damn blog out of it. Has anyone braved...
