my 7yr old had his field trip this week and i turned into my mother. as soon as i dropped him off i decided that i needed to write my phone number on a piece of paper and stuff it into his pocket. i made sure to remind him not to touch it unless he absolutely needed to and i reminded him to stay away from the animals and not to get too close and and to stay with his group and to most importantly have a great time! and he was like, Ok mommy! and then i said, “ok, come here!” and I grabbed him towards me and I was trying to do the sign of the cross on him like my mom always did and still does to me, and he thought I was trying to High 5 him so he puts his little hand up and i’m all “NOOOO!! stop that!” lol and he was like WHAT? all confused! and every time I tried to do the sign on the cross he’d lift his hand and try to high 5 me! omg. it was hilarious!! LOL! i didn’t get to go with him on his field trip because i had a lot of stuff to do around the house and also because the night before i got like no sleep whatsoever. i couldn’t sleep because my dog Roxy has fleas. she’s NEVER EVER had a flea in her life till the other dog came to live with us. And so that night she was in bed scratching and scratching and scratching. she woke me up around 2:45 a.m. and well, the night before we watched the Exorcism of Emily Rose and OMG! it was almost 3 in the morning and I had almost convinced myself that THE DEVIL HIMSELF WAS GOING TO POSSESS ME IF I DIDN’T GET TO SLEEP BEFORE 3 A.M.!! OMG! Like i was so scared i was about to cry so for a good 10 minutes I just laid there in a state of panic and decided around 2:55 am. that i had had enough of the scratching so I got up grabbed roxy, apologized profusely to her for what I was about to do and put her in the restroom and shut the door behind me. she didn’t cry or anything, poor thing. I think she knew I was frustrated with her. And then I ran back to my bed threw the covers over my head because as we all know, covers protect you from the devil, shut my eyes and forced myself back to sleep. Then my alarm went off 2 hours later. wah! [Read more...]
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking since my last post. (which if you haven’t read and you’d like to read, just let me know and i’ll send the pw right to ya. It’s a pretty tragic post. ) Life is funny and weird. It’s a great thing, life, but man it’s funny. Remember being a kid how easy it was to make friends? I watch how effortless it is for my kids to just go to a park or anywhere and automatically become BFF’s with the kids that they meet. HOW DO THEY DO THAT? It just ain’t that easy when you’re an adult. I’m not a shy person, far from it. There ain’t one shy bone in my mofo’ing body, i tell you what, but i dunno what it is about people? I just don’t like people. LOL. Is that stupid or what? Stupid? Possibly, but I’m just being honest. People annoy the shit out of me. Sometimes I think, maybe it’s just me. Maybe i’m so unhappy with myself that i can’t appreciate anything or anybody else. But then i come to my senses and realize that nope, people are just fucking stupid. That’s so mean. I shouldn’t be that way and i try really hard not to be that way, but it’s so hard. This is why i don’t have very many friends. I can count all my close friends on one hand. I’m not talking relatives that i’m close to, but real non blood related friends. You just don’t know who to trust in this world. What if you make friends with a new female and she’s a slutty slut and tries to sleep with your husband?? Did you know there are females that would actually do that to you? THERE ARE!! What if you make friends with someone and they put you down all the time because they think they’re better/skinnier/smarter/richer or whatever? What if you make friends with someone and they steal from you? It’s hard to let my guard down because i’ve been friends with these types of people and i just don’t want any part of that ever again.
this morning i was listening to the radio on my morning “dropoffs” and they were discussing christmas bonuses, comparing everybody’s stories. one lady called in and said they got a $25 gift card, but if they took any time off between thanksgiving and new years, they wouldn’t get it! what kind of BS is that? LOL that lady calling in said, she’d rather have a day off than a measly $25 gift card! i don’t blame her. eff that! another woman called in and said her husband worked in the oil field and he got $10,000!!! omg. that is awesome right? then another woman called and said that last year her company had set out tins of fruit cake out on the table with everyone’s name on them. some people were like FRUIT CAKE? and chunked their’s in the trash. she said she kept hers and when she opened it up there was a check inside laying on the fruit cake. a check for $40,000!!! FORTY THOUSAND DOLLARS!!! sweet baby jesus, that’s a LOT of money!!!! she said there were a lot of people dumpster diving that day when they realized there was a check in there! can you imagine getting a christmas bonus of $40,000??? holy smokes. I WISH!!!! she was in the oil industry too. i’m thinking my husband needs a job in that oil field! haha. he only gets a stupid $25 gift card. he used to get some awesome bonuses with the last company he worked for, once he got $15,000!! man, that was awesome! you would think it would last a long time, but yeah it doesn’t! lol or maybe we just spend too much money? probs.
so what’s the most you’ve ever gotten? or do you know someone who got $40G’s for christmas? wouldn’t that be nice? ahhhh…
a good old fashion road trip. but not with my husband and kids. i need one with my bestest girlfriends. i remember way back when, when me and my good friend maria and my niece jessica would road trip from austin to houston just to go clubbin’. omg. we would have so much fun! i loved it! there’s nothing like laughing all the way to your destination, talking about boys and the stupid shit they do and laughing at ourselves! nothing like it! i miss that. i miss packing a bag, leaving for a few days and doing whatever we wanted! i’d love to be able to do that again! what’s sad is i don’t even think we have any pictures of all of us together! why didn’t we take any pics??? probably because we were too busy having fun! ha. oh i’m lying!! i just remembered we do have ONE pic!!! omg! i need to find it!! we seriously need to plan something! i miss those good ol’ days!
today was a great day. i’m still loving this gloomy cold weather! i hope the sun stays away for a few more days! and i hope it stays cold! i just LOVE it! and i can’t believe how much i laughed today! omg! the laughing! at everything! and everybody! i spent the better part of the morning almost in tears from laughing so much! at one point me and my bff were on the phone and we couldn’t even talk we were laughing so hard and breathing so hard from laughing! omg! LOL! i love days like that! i swear my sides are hurting from all the laughing. i swear they are! i hope you guys had an ab fab day as well! xoxo
