Life Has Been Kickin’ My Ass

Okay, so I guess it is time to pull my head out of my ass. This summer I have accomplished a lot of nothing. Well that is not completely true. I have read 32 books. I have managed to get behind in housework, laundry and self-maintenance. I don’t care what anyone says the crazy little hairs that seem to make and appearance after your 4oth birthday suck. What the hell! I shall now die with a pair of tweezers in my hand.

I have a ton of things to be really pissed off about. However, because I am trying to get over it and move on with my life I will only list my top 5.

1. I am not very good at not having extra money. Momma needs a spa day!

2. The kids need to go back to school and stop destroying my house. I AM NOT THE MAID!!!!

3. I should be in New You’re at Blogher 2012. Why am I not there? Please see number 1.

4. My laptop needs a new hard drive. It is going to cost $175.00 to repair it. Again, please see number 1.

5. Although I love cooking – if I hear , “mom I am hungry” one more time I am going to blow! I can’t buy food fast enough. I am now avoiding my local super market. It is embracing when the check out clerk asks you everyday, “what are you making tonight”.

Today, I crawled out of the hole that I been hiding in. I cleaned the house, did 6 loads of laundry and wrote this blog post. These task my not have been earth-shaking but hey….. give a girl a break. It is a start.

The Man And The Glass

“The Man” is my husband for better or worst. HE is very supportive and is my biggest cheerleader. There are times when makes me melt with the way he supports me and tells me, ” you go babe”. He thinks I can do anything which is a lot to live up to. He even listens to my crazy southern home remedies, such as: yesterday he had a sliver of glass in his finger and he couldn’t see it and he could only feel it if he hit his finger on something. I told him to wrap is finger in bacon fat and tape few hours. He looked at me like I was smoking crack, but he did it. I tried to explain that the fat and the salt in the bacon would pull the sliver of glass out of his finger. This is how I explained it to him, “My grandmother used this method to remove splinters and it worked every time. Take a very small piece of bacon fat and a band aid or piece of tape. Place the bacon fat on top of the splinter and cover with a band aid or tape. In the morning the splinter will have risen to the top and can be removed. (If the splinter is completely embedded under the skin you will need to put a small prick in the skin above the splinter with a clean needle before covering with the bacon fat.) Wash the area well once you’ve removed the splinter. This remedy never failed to remove even the toughest of splinters.

Guess what it worked about 3 hours later a very thin sliver of glass fail out of his finger.

Victory once more.

Buddha

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. ~Buddha

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The kids have been out of school for two weeks. With that said I am now counting down to the mos t wonderful time of the year. Today in target I saw the signs that indeed it is coming. THE FIRST DAY of school. In my would this is in fact the most wonder time of the year.

The first day of the school means that, the house will stay clean for more then 15 minutes. The first day of school mean that the house will be quite for more the 5 minutes. I will not hear the yelling, “mom make him stop!”

Don’t get me wrong I love my children. They make me laugh, cry and I am their biggest cheerleaders and believe me I pay a lot of money to be their cheerleader, football and cheer-leading is not cheap. But with all that is holy…. they need to go back to school.
