One Year Ago… & Random Tuesday Thoughts

One year ago today, Monkey took his first steps.  And I caught the whole thing on camera.  Yes it was only technically 2 steps (or perhaps 1 1/2) but when your kid is just 10 months old, that is BIG SHIZZLE!

It AMAZES me how much time has changed.  Now he runs all over the place like he’s late for a hot date.  As much as I wish he would slow down and walk, he just loves to run.  And fall.  Run and fall.  In that order.

I can’t believe that one year ago today I had a 10 month old and now I have a 22 month old.  WOW.  Those are worlds apart!

We start the injections this month.  This cycle.  I am nervous.  Not sure why.  Well, I am pretty sure I will get pregnant (knock on wood) but I am scared if I will stay pregnant.  I hope I hope I hope.

I want this to work so baaaaaaad!

I am trying to get my Christmas cards done.  But I have 150 cards to prep and I am sure as hell not writing all them addresses by myself!  No sir-ee bob!  And guess who is probably not going to write them all his-self either?  LOL Yup, the Hubby.

Soooo… I am trying to get all of them printed on my fancy home printer.  *sigh*

I have had this fancy Canon photo printer for about a year and other than printing 12348972903857 recipes and other random bits of fun, I have yet to print a photo or envelope or anything else of substance.  So, if anyone knows how the hell to use it… please come over and clue the clueless in.  Nnnkay??

There is not enough time in the day to get all of the shit done that I need to get accomplished.  I am getting seriously irritated about it.  I need to give up something.  But what?

Maybe I am just a slacker.

My Starbucks addiction is getting out of hand.  Even Hubby is starting to make subtle hints.  *humph*

I was going to have a bunch of photos prepared for you today but it didn’t happen.  Sorry 😦

Tomorrow I plan to share pictures (plan being the oprative word) of Monkey’s new haircut!  Cut by the new salon in town “Mama does hair”.  They just opened.  And it’s super close!  All I have to do is drive through the master bedroom into the master bath and I am there.  Awesome deal.

ANNNND, he didn’t scream like a loon the whole time I was cutting his hair.  So.  Haircut WIN!  I did awesome too.  Sursly.

What’s new in your world?

The Story of a Muu Muu and a UPS Dude Dear So and So Letters of Intent

Dear So and So...

Letters of Intent

——————————————–

Dear Self,

Get out of your funk!

Gah!

Me

——————————————–

Dear UPS “Dude” that delivers here EVERYDAY,

So I know that since you are here a lot now, you feel like we have “bonded” or whatever, BUT… please don’t be fooled.  We aren’t friends.  And yes, I realize that I have been in my Muu Muu for three days in a row when you have come by.  BUT, we do NOT have one of those “friendly” relationships where you can say things like “I thought if I came later today you would have had time to get dressed”.

*jaw drop*

Yeah we soooooo don’t have one of those relationships, nnkay?

Even though I appear to live in my jammies, you are coming to MY house, remember?  The place where I sleep?  And wear jammies?  Got it?

Hoping you get a bit more professional,

The lady in the pink muu muu

ps. In my defense, I have actually been in 2 different muu muu’s not just the one.

——————————————–

Dear Furry Ladies,

Love you!  Like A LOT.  I do.  But WTF are you eating outside that makes your breath smell that way?  Whenever either of you come up to me for cuddles and kisses, I have to breath through my mouth for fear I might lose my lunch!

No need to point out that it is my responsibility as your Mommy to brush your little canine teefies.  Time to go to the Doggie Dentist me thinks.

Love you but your mouths are rotten,

Mommy

——————————————–

Dear Starbucks,

I love you.  With.All.My.Heart.

*swoon*

Slowly giving you my kids college tuition,

Daily White Chocolate Mocha Addict

——————————————–

Dear Hubby,

Have fun on yet another of your leaving-me-alone-with-the-house-and-baby-and-furry-friends-to-escape-on-vaca trips this weekend.  Am I the coolest wife ever to let you always take these fun trips while I sit at home alone with like one day off in a year?  You better be nodding your head and saying “SOOOO the coolest wife EVER!” right now.

I better get a frickin t-shit,

The bestest, coolest, most kick ass (seriously) wife on the planet

ps. Hope the Steelers kick some serious Raiders ass on Sunday.  Wave a Terrible Towel for me, since I won’t be there with you.

——————————————–

Dear Christmas Tree,

Oh how I love thee.  Mommy made you into serious perfection.  I love to stare at you and stare some more.  Purrrrrrrrrrty.

Love,

Your AMAZING decorator

*LOVE*

1204730991_efbe350954-300x285

This week I am going to look at the positives.  Today more specifically the things that I love.  THINGS not people.  You don’t really want me to make you a list of all the people I love do you?  That would be a LOT of reading.

I *LOVE* my DVR.  Because without it I would go mad.  Thank goodness it is HUGE because lately I am a total slacker and am way behind on… EVERYTHING.

I *LOVE* the talking dog Dug in Up.  And now I am obsessed with adopting a dog and naming him Dug.  Don’t tell Hubby.  Hubby if you are reading this… he followed us home.  What was I supposed to do? *grin*

I *LOVE* my wedding rings.  And I especially love when someone comments about them.  They are so sparkly and still make me grin from ear to ear.  And even though I say “aww, shucks, thanks” and pretend to brush off the compliment, I am really thinking “oh yeah, you wish you were me right now, don’t you, booya!” *blink*

Shirt-Motorboat_240

I *LOVE* the word motorboat.  Because it always makes me laugh to say it or hear it.  I guess I’m just a kid at heart and can’t help but giggle.

I *LOVE* that I haven’t shaved my legs in three weeks and nobody has noticed.  Maybe I am trying to set a record.  What?

I *LOVE* my new shampoo.  When I get out of the shower, all I can smell is fresh celery.  Odd but refreshing.

I *LOVE* fuzzy socks.  But really, who doesn’t? Am I right?

I *LOVE* my house.  Right now I really love it though because it’s clean! *gasp*

I *LOVE* my dual monitors on my desk.  And I love that I am so spoiled that getting on the laptop makes me cringe because I am so damn spoiled.

I *LOVE* tattoos and can’t wait to get more.  It’s on my wish list fer suuure.

coffee_morning

I *LOVE* coffee shops.  Yummmmmeh!

I *LOVE* drive thru’s.  All sorts.  Drive thru Starbucks, drive thru food but especially drive thru liquor. *grin*

I *LOVE* my Tahoe.  One main reason is that when I am in the drive thru at Starbucks and the little red convertible thinks he can cut in line all I have to do is edge up a little and he knows that I could squash him like a bug.  And he of course backs off.  I feel tough.  Check out these guns.  *flexing muscles*  *giggle*  (ok, well maybe he was just letting me in because he was nice… either way I win, right? hah!)

What things do you *LOVE*?

Six inch, Ramen, Cheesy “Not Me” Monday!

It is time for another “Not me” Monday. Time where I make it clear the things that did Not happen to me in the last week.  Feel free to click on the link above to read other “Not Me” Confessionals… errr… Not really.  🙂

It was not me who took my kid out first thing in the morning to get a pick me up Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte.   It was then totally not me who stopped to chat with the neighbor and then lied to the neighbor when he asked “are those your sleep clothes?” by saying “no, ahem, they are just our lounge clothes” ignoring the fact that be surely noticed the sheep on my pajama pants and the footie pajamas on Monkey.  That is something I would NEVER do!

It was not me who let Monkey eat Cup-o-Noodles and Cheese Balls* exclusively because I didn’t want to listen to him scream and pitch a fit.  But it was not Monkey who was trying to mimic me after watching me blow on his noodles to cool them off.

clbedit110109-2727 copyHe did this between each bite.  It was SO CUTE!!

*Yes, Carma, we are still eating the same batch of Cheese Balls that I bought how long ago?? HaHa

It was not me that tried for 20 minutes, through screams, kicking and crying to try and put a monkey costume on my Monkey perhaps just for the photo op.

IMG_6028-8 copyIn my defense, this pic was actually taken when we got the costume a month or so ago.  He obviously loved it just as much then as he did on Halloween.  Yay for Monkey Costume! 😦

So I guess it was not me who finally gave up and just went to Johnny Carino’s instead.  And it was not me who let Monkey have spaghetti at Johnny Carino’s even though I knew it would end up all over everything and the busboy would be cursing me when we left.

clbedit110209-6137 copynom nom nom nom nom

It was not me who was giggling while Hubby was getting a 6 inch Q-tip shoved up his nose to test him for the flu.  And it was not me who decided to document this moment for him forever and ever.

clbedit110209-6134 copySo cute, isn’t he?  He always sticks his tongue out at cameras.  Paparazzi and all.

Oh and it is sooooo not me who is PRAYING so hard that I don’t have to get the same Q-Tip treatment if this cold doesn’t go away. *gulp*

It was not me who stayed in bed this morning for an extra 30 minutes even though I could see Monkey on the monitor pulling EVERYTHING out of the dresser drawers.  But hey, 30 minutes is 30 minutes y’all.  Don’t judge. 🙂

What things were not you this week?

Make sure to link up if you blog “not me” Monday.

Much less Whiny Random Tuesday Thoughts

randomtuesday

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

Show of hands, how many people liked my mushy, whiny, pity party yesterday?  Yeah didn’t think so.  I don’t much care for it either.

I tend to jump to my emotions and the focus in on them like a crazy person.  In this case yesterday, I couldn’t sleep and half assed wrote that blog at 3 in the morning.  I was feeling those things but wasn’t taking into regard the feelings of others.  I do that, though.  It isn’t good and I am not making excuses.  It’s just one of the shitty flaws in my character.  Lani said something that really stuck on me.

…the loneliness is natural, not necessarily anybody’s fault.. in times like this I think we just need to cut each other some slack.

That is something I most definitely didn’t do.  I focus on the need of the moment.  This weekend I wanted to be held and needed attention.  Since I didn’t get that I failed to see all the other things that were done.  I am so glad that most of my readers saw that.  It was wonderful to read the comments and even the few emails I got.  So thank you.  I see it now and will spend as much energy as I can to prove that I was wrong in my words yesterday.

Moving on to more randomness….

Starbucks apparently has rolled out Pumpkin Spice today, which I just read on a Facebook post.  I seriously want to drive there to get a decaf Pumpkin Spice Latte like RIGHT. NOW!  Weird?  I think not.  I will be heading there shortly.

Monkey is sitting on my lap while I type my blog on one monitor and he is watching “Baby Einstein: On the Go” in the other one.  I feel like I only have half a computer.  And in my current sideways sitting position, I know I only have half a lap.

This Saturday is our anniversary.  Well it is one of the three anniversaries that I shamelessly make my hubby participate in.

They are:

  • February 7, 2003 Our first date/the day I knew I was in love.
  • December 26, 2003 The day we said “I do” at the Douglas County Courthouse.  (a perfect day)
  • September 5, 2004 The day we had a beautiful wedding in the gorgeous Rocky Mountains.

They are all days that I want to celebrate.  Lucky for me, he seems to agree.  So Saturday will mark five years since my Dad helped my drunk ass walk down the aisle giggling the whole way drunk as a nervous skunk walked me down that aisle.  It will be five years since we said our vows to each other.  It is going to be a great day!

Monkey keeps yelling “CARRRRRRR!!!” and “VRRRROOOOOOOMMMMM” at the screen.  And if I don’t “vroom” back to him, he grabs my face and turns it to him as if to say “Focus Mom! I am talking to you!” I secretly LOVE it when he does that.  Especially in public or even more so when I am trying to get an annoying solicitor to leave my front porch while he is perched on my hip. 🙂

Per my husbands request I will be starting a daily photo blog.  I am planning on putting it on this blog page as well, so I hope that works out.  I used to send out a daily photo email to family and friends.  I am not sure why I ever stopped.  I guess I just didn’t have the time.  But I miss it and I am going to get back into it.  They wont ALL be baby shots, but lets face it, he is my favorite subject.  Some will me old and some will be new.  I hope you enjoy and comment on the shots you like and don’t like even.  I think. LOL

Today there was a high of 81 degrees.  This kind of weather is what I have needed.  It makes it bearable to be here in this humid town.  The 116 heat index heat is not my friend.  Ugh.  Hopefully this will convince me to do some more walking with the baby around the neighborhood and park.  Of course that will depend on when my doctor pulls me off of this semi-bed rest.  Oh well, it will happen when it happens right?

That is my new motto.  It is what it is. Go forth and forget the small shit that gets in the way.  That is my new goal. 🙂

Have a great evening.  Sorry for the late post.  Also, sorry I am not having time to read everyone’s blogs.  Having Gram in town doesn’t free up a lot of time for computer puttering.

Anything new and exciting to report? Comment with a blog link if you want me to get to it.  Sorry again for the lack of reading time!
