A Sexy and Musical Dear So and So Letters of Intent

Dear So and So...

Letters of Intent

——————————————–

Dear Glee,

I am pretty sure you love the pants off me, and that is why you hired Mark Salling who plays Noah.  Hope he doesn’t mind being in many future, and *ahem* past, naughty dreams of mine.

markshilling

I can’t be responsible if Hubby wakes up one morning soon with a Mohawk.  🙂 Oh yeah, who’s your Mama?

Rawwwr,

Mama

——————————————–

Dear Hubby,

Thank you kindly for stopping at the grocery store last week and picking up some needed food items for me.  And thank you even more for going back in even after you had already paid to pick me up the newest copy of People so that I could read the article on Jaycee Dugard before the new issue of people came out that next day.

However, you will forgive my laughter and constant giggles when I walk by the kitchen counter and notice the “Country Music” edition of People that you got instead sitting there.  It was so kind of you, really it was, but I can’t help but laugh, me being the country music buff and all.  Lol

Now if only I knew some of the people this magazine is about.  Anyone wanna fill me in on some Country stars? *shrug*

Giggling,

The Wife

——————————————–

Dear Jill,

OMG I am so stoked for my Jesus Is Not Offended Wall Calendar!!!  I would be willing to bet my life savings that you will be able to retire off of sales of the new calendar.  You are so amazingly talented.  Your artistic skills can only be compared to that of DaVinci or Michelangelo.  Honestly, I think you put the two of them to shame.

Anxiously watching the mail for my prize,

Cass

——————————————–

Dear Hubby,

Wednesday night, you fell asleep on the couch.  While I was typing *this* blog (planning ahead :)) you sat up, looked straight at me (or… maybe past me… anyhoo…) and you said “We will do it tomorrow night!” and promptly fell back down and into slumber.  I had to laugh.

Now, I am just trying to figure out what “doing” will be done.  Heh heh heh 😉

Oddly turned on,

The wife

——————————————–

Dear Nick Jr (formarly known as Noggin),

Usually I am totally irritated by all of your nonsense, even though Monkey seems to think you’re all good.  But this… this? is so frickin’ awesome!

Humming Three Little Birds a lot lately,

Mama

——————————————–

Dear Monkey,

I love that you are suddenly being all Mommy needy right now.  Yes that is selfish of me because you are usually a Daddy’s boy.  But I am soaking that shizzle UP!  I love how you want to be held all the time and how you always want to be on my lap.  One thing that I really enjoy is playing the “what’s that” game with you.  You know… where you point to my hair and say “wuzzat?” and I say “that is Mommy’s Hair” and you point to my nose and say “wuzzat?” and I say “Mommy’s nose” and you stick your finger in my eye and say “wuzzat?” and I say “OWE OWE MY EYE MY EYE!!” and you laugh at me.  Fun times.  Sooo… let’s keep playing that, but with less… intensity.  Nnkay?

Love you baby!
Mama

——————————————–

Dear Jon Gosselin,

Seriously?

I just threw up in my mouth,

Cass

——————————————–

Dear Kelly,

Thank you for emailing me today.  You sent me the most hilarious joke I have heard!

It is a new take on the 3 little pigs nursery rhyme.

The Big Bad Wolf said,

I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house down!

The three little pigs said,

Fuck off or we’ll sneeze on you!

Rolling on the floor,

Cass

Loving the odd bits


Life is full of tiny bits of happiness that we tend to take for granted.  Or if you are like me, these tiny bits of happiness are what you strive for every day.  For me, it is the little things.  Most of them are just around my house.  Why not? Considering I spend 99% of my time in my house.  But there are certain things in my home that make me intensely happy.

All of us have at least a couple of these little bits.  They can be something that nobody else could possibly find joy in, like the smell of your husband’s pillow, or something that we all see like the smile of a baby.

Here is a list in no particular order with some of the odd bits of life that I love.  Some you will find boring, perhaps, but all of which make *me* blissfully happy.  And as we have covered a lot lately, this blog *is* all about me. Yay me!

  • Candles – I try to light at least one candle in my house a day.  Although it sometimes gets put on the back burner.  Right now I am addicted to these Pomegranate candles from Target.  The smell makes me insanely happy.  And all it takes is one to send the smell through the entire house!  (So I light three. *grin*)
  • My Books – The look, feel and smell of a new book always makes my heart melt!  The anticipation of reading the book is an amazing feeling.  I have a LOT of books to be read and they make me smile just thinking of them sitting all alone in nervous anticipation of me opening their pages.
  • Matching Flatware or as I have always called it Silverware – I bought a new set of beautiful silverware (not made of silver) last year and for the first time in my life I have an entire set of silverware that matches!  Not a whole bunch of mixed matched knives and forks from different sets.  It’s weird, I know, but every time I open the drawer and see my beautiful set of flatware, I smile and sigh with contentment.
  • Seltzer – Nothing sends me a zing like my drug drink of choice, LaCroix Lime Seltzer.  Ice cold and just opened? Can’t think of anything on the planet I would rather drink.  Alcohol included.  If you know me, you know THAT is a bold statement.  🙂  I drink a 12 pack of these bad boys every day.  That is typically ALL I drink.  And that’s why I buy it in bulk from the grocery store once a month.
  • My Saint Patrick’s Day Coffee Mug – It’s like St. Patty’s Day every day in this house.  Because that mug is the best mug EVA!!  So I use it every day for my hot tea.  It’s perfection.
  • Giggling – My husband and my son have the best giggles and laughs in the world!  It is one of my favorite sounds and it too makes me blissfully happy.  It’s a feeling I can’t replicate.  And I love it.  I couldn’t make any list of things I love without including their giggles.

It may be a goofy list.  But it’s my happy list.  Yay me!  (btw, Yay Me! is now my new motto.  I plan to use it often.  Soak it up. :))

What are your bits of happiness?  What are the little things that make you blissfully happy?

It’s time for some BIG changes around here…

I have been reading all these amazing blogs for quite some time.  I love to read them and although I am not a profound writer (hah!) or anything, I do get at least four or five readers a day.  LOL

My blog is supposed to be a place where I can truly be me.  ME all the time.  365 days of *me*  Me on a stick.  Me with a side of gravy.  ME ME ME ME ME ME ME.  Get it?

And lately… I haven’t been me.  I have been trying to be who people want me to be.  I don’t say certain things because I don’t want to offend.  I don’t speak my mind because I don’t want to hurt feelings.  I am just not ME.

For one thing, my mouth is bad.  I curse.  I curse because I LIKE to curse.  I curse because it feels good.  I curse because I have since as long as I can remember and because it just makes me, me.  But you may notice, especially if you know me in real life, that I very rarely curse if at all on my blog.  People comment on it a lot actually.  How my blog is a “cleaner” version of me.

I even stopped saying “Oh my God” because I received an email from one reader who still reads my blog (or maybe after today will not) with the request that I change it to “Oh my goodness” because saying God was offensive.  I changed it because I didn’t want to be offensive.

Today, I had an epiphany!

I am ME!  And if someone who reads this blog doesn’t like it, then I say, hey, this is *me*.  If I read a blog that I don’t like, do you know what I do?  I don’t read it again.  Ayup.  Good strategy don’t you think?

If someone doesn’t want me to talk about sex, or say God, or say fuck, then I say, it’s mighty time you hit that big red X at the top there because this is the new me.  Well the old me, just new to you.

When I met Hubby, one thing that really drew me in was that he didn’t care what ANYBODY thought about him.  He was the one person that I had ever met who didn’t just say they didn’t care what people thought.  He really didn’t care.  As long as he was happy and making the people he loved and cared about happy, then he didn’t care what anybody else thought.  In 24 years, I had never seen anything like it.

He has changed me and brought about a new me.  Whenever I ask his opinion on how I should handle any situation, from the mundane and silly, to the HUGE and life changing, he most always replies with some variation of the same sentence.  “Just be you babe.”

From today forward, this is me.  Hi, how are ya? Nice to meet ya.

This is the ME I am.

The grammar challenged, vulgar, cursing, sex obsessed, OCD, stay at home Big Mama fumbling through life.  This is me.

And that is awesome.

🙂

Ruhroh Rorge! Random is as Random Does! RTT

randomtuesday

If you want to play along with Random Tuesday Thoughts, go here to get the widget and add your name to Mr. Linky.

I am so glad it is RTT because my brain is SOOOO random right now it is nauseating.  You have been warned.  Huge Randomness comin’ at ya.

As a matter of fact, my super overactive brain has caused me to lose quite a bit of sleep lately.  Every night when I think I am tired enough, I go crawl into bed and then as if on cue my brain starts going a million miles an hour.  With LOTS of stuff.  From the mundane like the fact that for over a week now, I keep forgetting to buy myself toothpaste and at any moment I will not be able to brush my teeth without using toddler Vewwy Bewwy paste… to the super critical decision making like Christmas with the family and baby making.  (Not in that order)  If this keeps up, they are going to put me in a padded cell.  Which I guess will be ok, just as long as Jill is in the padded room next to me. *grin*

The lack of sleep has a lot to do with the memory foam mattress that we have that I hate with a passion dislike.  It has screwed up my back and neck.  (Even worse than it was screwed up before I got the stupid annoying bed.)  So tomorrow I am going to have a massage!!  WOOHOO!  Pamper me baby for one full hour! YES!

Oh, I almost forgot!  Speaking of Jill, she had a ackward fantabulous giveaway yesterday, which I apparently won, even though I didn’t know I entered.  Please click here to check out my creepy amazing prize.  It’s guaranteed to give you the willies make you laugh!  No, seriously… HEELARIOUS.  Must see. *wink*

Hubby is sick and is staying home tomorrow…. err today.  (I am writing this Monday night in my insomnia fog… go figure).  I just hope it isn’t the flu.  Or the piglet flu either.  Cause both would suck.  Not to mention, it would REALLY suck (for him) if he has to sleep on the back porch as to not infect the rest of us.  And Monkey will totally back me on this.  We will just wave at him from the backdoor.  And hurl chicken soup from a window.

Can you take too much Airborne?  I hope not.  I had 5 of them yesterday, and plan to take probably the same amount today.  And I have made Monkey wash his hands 239841032985 times since he woke up.

Funny conversation with Hubby about Supper plans on Sunday:

Hubby:  What’s for dinner?

Me:  Brinner.

Hubby:  What the heck is brinner?

Me:  Brinner?  It’s breakfast.  Breakfast for dinner?  Brinner?  Get it?

Hubby:  HaHaHa, that’s funny!  I never heard that before.

Me:  Really? Well I didn’t make it up so I can’t take credit.

Hubby:  How come it’s not called Brupper?

Me:  HAHAHAHAHA!!

He cracks me up.

I finally got all of the bugs MURDERED in our house.  YAY!!  And wouldn’t you know it, Danny, that I talked about here and here NEVER called and NEVER showed up!  How insane is that?!?!  Total lack of respect.  Irritates the shit out of me!  I can’t figure out how businesses stay in business with these customer service skills.  It baffles me.

I was browsing MckMama‘s photography website yesterday and she has this song playing.  It is A la Claire Fontaine from the movie The Painted Veil.  Which was an awesome movie, imo.  Anyhoo… I just keep hearing this song over and over and over in my head.  So of course I had to get it on iTunes.  It is so beautiful.

I got this picture message with this note on my cell phone yesterday from my Dad.

downsized951023090938Pic of Ruhroh driving out of our lives for the last time.  Sniff.

That was the car I learned to drive in.  Astro Mini Van.  The coolest of the cool.  The license plates said Ruhroh.  To this day it is the only car I have ever been able to parallel park.  Shut up!

I totally cried when I got the text.  Weird?  Perhaps.  But it makes me sad to know that it is gone.  All four of us kids drove that car over the years.  I remember the fun we used to have in it on long car rides up to the mountains.  There was only a bench seat (not enough space for 4 kids) so we put 2 bean bags in the way back for seats.  Seat belts?  We don’ need no stinkin’ seat belts!

It makes me sad.  Times they are a changin.  *sigh*

What do you think of my new signature? I got bored of the old one.  I really want to redo my blog page again, but I am soooo bad at that!  And I don’t know anyone who designs WordPress blogs.  It seems everyone does Blogger ones.  How lame is that?  Yes, April, I am talking to you! LOL

Not Me! Monday

I have decided to finally participate in an episode of Not Me Monday by the adorable MckMama at www.mycharmingkids.net.  I’m sure you know who she is since she has like a gobzillion readers.  Some day I will be as amazingly famous as her.  Ok, not really, but in my head it works. *grin*

So without further ado, here are the things that most definitely were NOT ME

It most certainly was not me who ate an entire bag of honey mustard pretzels last week for lunch.  And NO WAY would I then chase it down with TWO Kit-Kat bars from the Halloween candy stash.

It was also not me the other day who saw Monkey playing happily in the playroom and thought to myself “aww no! how did he get chocolate milk all over his bum?” and it was most definitely not me who took another 5 minutes to connect “oh dear lord, we don’t HAVE any chocolate milk!” And it FOR SURE was not me who cursed the diaper company for making a diaper that leaked.  Eww.

Since I have totally not been lazy the last 3 weeks, it was totally not moi that rewashed the same load of clothes 5 times over the course of 5 days because I kept forgetting to put them in the dryer.  No way would I ever do that!

It was not me who was too lazy and battling a migraine who pulled into the Taco Bell to order her family their dinner.  And it most certainly was not me who allowed my 20 month old to eat Cinnamon Twists when that was the only thing he didn’t scream about and try to throw at me.

And FOR SURE it was not me who accidentally grabbed the cordless house phone instead of my cell phone for my drive to the Taco Bell.  That would just be silly.

Guess what else was not me? Well… since you asked… (heh) it was not me who broke down and let Monkey keep one of the toys that I bought for a friends new baby girl just so he wouldn’t scream and continue to make a scene.  So, now it is not my almost 2 year old who is STILL carrying around a rattle for an infant baby girl.  Nope.  Not my kid.  No way!  LOL

Ok, that’s all I have for this week.  Please make sure to click the link above to go and add your won “Not Me Monday” posts.

Hugs and kisses!

Take a BITE outta… wait… whaaaat? Dear So and So Letters of Intent

Dear So and So...

Letters of Intent

——————————————–

Dear Headache,

I have about had it up to *here* with you this week!  For the past 6 days in a row? Seriously!?!?

GO AWAY!

The Head

——————————————–

Dear Monkey,

Why are you getting so aggressive with the girls this week lately?  Poor Jazz is going to rip your little arm off if you hit her again.  And poor Daisy runs anytime you even LOOK in her direction.  What’s up?

Just so you know, the growling is their way of telling you they don’t want you hitting them.  Nnnkay?

Feeling like a broken record repeating “don’t hit!”,

Mama

——————————————–

Dear Toddler Clothing Makers,

Why is it that ALL of the pants I buy for my 20 month old son have a waist band big enough to stretch from her to Germany?  He is NOT abnormal.  There can’t be a whole lot of kids who can wear these pants without them falling down. Seriously.  I am baffled.  GRRRR

Irritated,

Mama

——————————————–

Dear Monkey,

I know you run the show in this here house but, we need to get one thing clear.  Even though it is clearly your intent to live on Fruit Cups and Cheerios alone, you really can’t.  PLEASE eat something else for Mommy.  Please?

Love you baby,

Mama

——————————————–

Dear Spider that crawled up and took a big CHOMP outta my butt the other night,

Was this some lame attempt at voicing your attraction to me?  No? Oh.

Was this your way of giving me good blog material? No? Oh.

Was this your way of telling me that you knew the exterminator was coming and you just wanted a last bite before death?  No. Oh.

Was this you just doing what spiders just do naturally, you creepy little buggers?  Yeah, I thought so.

Not cool buddy, not cool!

Lamest joke teller of all time,

Cass

——————————————–

Dear Durex,

I love you for making this commercial.  I have seen it a gazillion times, but totally can’t stop watching it.

Rolling on the floor,

Cass

about moi…

Hi, my name is Cass. I am married to an amazing man who loves me unconditionally. I’m a stay at home mom to a rockin’ 2 year old boy who I call Monkey. I have an 12 year old step-daughter who lives in another state. We miss her daily. We also have two fur babies, Daisy and Jazz, who keep us on our toes. They are awesome!

I am a complete goofball, a photographer and a constant out loud thinker. I am a grammar challenged, vulgar, cursing, sex obsessed Big Mama fumbling through life. Among other things, I battle PCOS causing infertility, Bi Polar, Anxiety and OCD.

Currently I am riding the fertility roller coaster in an attempt to make Monkey #2. This blog is about a little of everything. I hope you enjoy. Read at your own risk!
