To Be Honest Tuesday...

To be honest, I'd rather be sitting in a tub full of bubbles with some classical music playing while reading my book by candlelight.  That's all I want right now.  Doesn't it sound wonderful?!  Unfortunately, I do not see that happening for a really long time.  Maybe when Paul aka Goose (I'm not using code names anymore except for young ones) & I go for our one year anniversary will I be able to do that while he's at the casino gambling.  Ha!  It just sounds so delightful especially right now when my whole body aches due to stupid Aunt Flo.  Ugh!  Curse you, Aunt Flo...wait, no, I don't curse you cuz when you come to visit, it means that I'm not pregnant.  & that, my friends, I am thankful for.  Ha!

Six Years Later...

Yup, I'm that little guy right there & I pushed the dominoes about six years ago & now they have crashed down upon me.

So, I was on another blogging site a long time ago, three years ago about.  This blog was negative by my hand, immature by my words & dramatic by the "queen" of that site.  I was not the queen but she did take me under her wing & I did what got me views - I was a major bitch!  Well, one of the topics I wrote about six years ago was Greg & now, I don't remember what I wrote but it has been found, read & hurt him.  I feel so bad now cuz I don't think those things now, I look at him as my older brother, the one I love but want to kick in the shins at the same time.  His wife, Jill, is one of my best friends & with this, I hurt her too & she is one of the last people that I would ever want to hurt.  I feel terrible for the person I was over on that site.  Here, I like to think that I take a more positive view on thing…

Musical Monday...

Changes by Tupac
Some changes are coming around the bend right now.  After all the drama with Trouble, she suggested herself that she transfer to a LUTHERAN high school.  Goose got on the horn right away this morning & she'll be shadowing at the school tomorrow.  The plus side of this school is that it's an hour away so she won't be around much to be influenced by the crap people she calls friends here.  Another plus, smaller classes so I'm hopeful that will mean better grades for her.  She so badly needs a new start & I'm really excited that it's starting.  :)

Funny Friday...

This is WAY too funny!  I think that I may have to try in the bathroom mirror.  Tee hee!  Give it a try & let me know what you see.  :)
So, the only thing I have planned for the weekend is a Pinterest Night with some of my favorite girls tonight.  I am so excited.  I'm going to finish up my Fall Swag Swap goodies & I'm way excited about the things I have for Elizabeth.  Eeek!  Other than that, I may get together with my friend, Jenny, tomorrow to discuss things with Trouble.  I really wanna finish Allegiant this weekend, I'm almost done with it.  I guess we'll see what the weekend brings.
What do yall have planned for your weekends?

Thankful Thursday...

Here we are on another Thursday & I’m searching for things to be thankful &, again, I’m having a difficult time doing so.  Therefore, I’m gonna do the best that I can.  Here we go:
1.I am thankful for Kleenex.  Without it, I’d be snotting up my sleeve & having crusted tears on my cheeks.  No fun.  But with the aid of Kleenex brand facial tissue, I can avoid that!  Do I sound like a commercial?  I hope so cuz that’s what I was going for.  Ha!


2.I am thankful for delicious meals made in the crockpot.  Yesterday, I made meatloaf and baked potatoes all in the same crockpot & they all turned out wonderfully!  All I had to do when I got home from work was warm up the peas in the microwave.  Perfection!



3.I am thankful for fashion scarves that are both fashionable & keep my neck warm.  The only downfall, I cannot wear necklaces with them & I do love me a good lookin’ necklace.

To Be Honest Tuesday...

To be honest, I think that today's youth is pretty much a waste of space.  Okay, not all of them, there are some good kids out there but I cannot believe how many bad ones there are!  I'm just flabbergasted by it.  Trouble has been kicked out of the house since Sunday night & before she was kicked out, I was able to get her phone from her & later get into it.  You would not believe the things I found on that thing.  Things that these kids are doing is insane!  Drugs, drinking, sex...it doesn't stop with these kids.  I never even THOUGHT about doing have the shit these kids are doing when I was in high school.

It's gotten to the point where we need to get Trouble away from these "friends" & this town before she ends up pregnant, overdosing, in jail or dead.  We've been in communication with PPB & she's in complete agreement with me about getting Trouble into in-patient care cuz it can & will get worse if nothing is done.  Goose, on…

Musical Monday...

Boom Clap by Charli XCX
This song keeps getting stuck in my head & makes me wanna watch The Fault in Our Stars.  I bought it last week but have not had a chance to watch it yet.  I may make my grandparents watch it tomorrow so we can all cry like little babies.  Ha, ha!  Such a great movie.
As for my weekend, it was good for the most part.  Goose & I went out for dinner on Friday night & then came home to watch Captain America:  Winter Soldier.  Saturday, we headed down to Madison for the Badger game.  The weather was quite weird - it went from hot to good to rain.  We ended leaving after the Jump Around (at the beginning of the 4th quarter) cuz there was NO way Bowling Green was going to come back.  We went downtown Mad Town, had a couple of drinks, watched a band playing outside & then went to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.  A pretty fancy place, Goose had to take off his baseball cap.  Ha!  It was way too fancy for me.  I would have rather gone to Topper's Pizza.…

Funny Friday...

I don't know why this makes me giggle so much cuz I would be pissed if I were to throw a handful into my mouth...I mean, I don't eat any of them that way cuz I eat based on color - least favorite to my favorite.  Yes, I'm weird.  There is always some weird process with my eating.  Tee hee!  But this is funny & something I would LOVE to do to my co-workers.  Ha, ha!

Well, I'm ready to start my weekend.  The weekends are typically good cuz Trouble is gone with friends all weekend & outta my hair (she's really on my Shit List).  Sunshine is at her mother's until Sunday.  So, tonight, the hubby & I are gonna take it easy, go out for dinner & then come home to watch the new Captain America & then hit the sack.   Tomorrow, we wanna leave town at 7:00 to head to Madison for the Badger football game.  I am so ready to go.  It's my first one of the season & I really need a trip to Camp Randall to watch my boys win especially after I got the …

Thankful Thursday...

Wow, another rough couple of days but, again, I must find at least three things in my life that I'm thankful for on this Thursday, so here we go:

  1.  I'm thankful that I'm going tonight for my Badger-Brewer-Packer tattoo & that my mom is coming with me.  Bring on the pain, I need a physical pain to go with all the emotional crap I've been going through.

  2.  I'm thankful for my pumpkin spice candles.  I have them at home & one at work & it's the best smell ever.  Everyone here at work just loves the scent.  It's so festive!  :)

  3.  I'm thankful that I have not crapped my pants yet from the not-so-healthy lunch choice I made -  two hamburgers, french fries, a Pepsi & an order of cheese curds.  I better wrap this up so I can hit the toilet.  Eeek!


I Just Wanna Be Mad...

Yup, Terri this is pretty much how I've felt the last two nights especially tonight.  
Tonight, we celebrated Sunshine's birthday & I'll get more into that tomorrow but right now I wanna just get my chest dusted off.  All was going well, everyone was having a good time, Sunshine just finished opening her gifts & there was one last one from us.  We got her the penny phone from US Cellular which happened to be an iPhone.  Well, Trouble had a frickin' fit, threw C off her lap, banged her way past Jill & Chelsie to run upstairs and stayed up there the remainder of the party.  She was pissed that Sunshine got an iPhone.  That's what Sunshine asked for & that's what was a penny.  Back when Trouble turned thirteen, they didn't have iPhones as penny phones & I've always told her that if she wanted something different, she had to wait until she could upgrade & then pay for it herself.
Of course, at one point, Goose is upstairs arguing wi…

Where's Count When I Need Him...

So, the lovely Erin did A Weekend In Numbers and I love those type posts so I worked on one during lunch today & here she is:



9  - fall/Halloween decorations up on my shelf - two creepy trees on each end, a little pumpkin tealight holder next to the trees, then fall painted wine bottles next to those & three lil candles in the middle (a pumpkin ghost, Frankenstein & a witch).


4 - flowers from my garden, probably the last ones.  :(


7 - light up bulbs on my lil witchy-poo's chest.



5 - Halloween goodies on my table in my kitchen including my favorite decoration, my skull.  I want a real one but Goose won't get me one.  Boo.


3 - Halloween "creatures" that Sunshine painted for me last year - a ghost, a pumpkin & a witch.  We all get a lil giggle from the witch who "looks like a mermaid".  Sunshine's description, not mine.


1 - my mummy that I got at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago.



2 - door hangers on my front and back door.
I love my fall/H…

Who doesn't love a little Adam Levine?  However, this is not a music video so here is a little something for you ladies:







Thankful Thursday...

Today is going to be a rather difficult day to come up with some things to be thankful for as Trouble has been terrible the last couple of nights - cutting herself, running off, screaming/swearing at us, hurting Sunshine.  But here we got, there is always a silver lining, right?

  1.  My new sweater that I bought from Maurice's on Monday that I'm sporting today.  I love it!  Plus, I've gotten a couple of complements already from some of my co-workers, that makes me feel better after the night/morning I've had.

  2.  A nice dinner, church & shopping outing with Sunshine.  She really is my sunshine & I love her with all my heart...although, she did complain a little bit about the church part but she needs to go to complete Sermon Notes for confirmation class.

  3.  Planned crafty night with some of my girlfriends.  Actually, we're calling it Pinterest Night where we each find something to do from Pinterest, get together, have some snacks, some drinks & c…

Makes Me Happy Pics...

I am SO far behind on posting these pictures so instead of doing a group of ten, I'm gonna do twenty to get through them & get caught up.  So, get ready for some picture happiness!  Ha!


Ipsy delivery!

Going shopping with this lil Sunshine.

Froyo!

Ahhh, Gloria Jean's chiller.  Yum!

Reading.

My first envelope of You Are Beautiful stickers.

Froyo...yes, again.  I love it, what can I say.

I have proof that Trouble does, in fact, love me.

Yes, I'm a Twilight nerd...so kill me.  Ha!


Hanging out with my beautiful niece, K.

Celebrating CE's 2nd birthday.  He loves cars!

One of my favorite places in the world!  I LOVE CHEESE!

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

Exactly!  I have seven tattoos & going in for another one next week.  Just because I have tattoos does not make me a whore or a dirty person or an irresponsible person.  It just means that I love something so much that I want it to be with me at all times.  Although tattoos are becoming more acceptable, there are still people out there that view them in a negative light.  I think that they can be beautiful.  There are some out there that make you shake your head but, you know what, that isn't your decision to make.  If someone wants to get "Boner Garage" tattooed on them, that's on them.




The Trouble With Trouble...

My stepdaughter can be beautiful & kind & caring & loving but sometimes, she lets this demon take over her and it's so hard watch it & to take the brunt of her blows.  Let me backup, when I came into the picture over four years ago, I was entering a dysfunctional situation - a single dad raising two pre-teen daughters who's mother came & go as SHE pleased.  Goose trying to make up for the girls not having a mother pretty much let them do whatever they wanted & without consequences.
The girls hated me at first, Trouble more so then Sunshine.  Trouble had just turned 12 & with thoughts of how terrible I was from her mother (who didn't know me from Adam), she had a difficult time.  But I fought my way in & have been more of a mother to her than her real mother.  I choose that role, I wanted to help these girls & be there for them.
Fast forward.  
Trouble & I have had our ups & downs like most mother/daughters do & it's so h…

Musical Monday...

Well, I've had some luck with my September goals already & I'm glad that I listened to some new music cuz I found this gem:


Secrets by Mary Lambert.

Funny Football Friday...

I decided to blend the two today into one big fun blog post.  I need all the cheering up I can get after the debacle of a football game between the Packers & the Seahawks last night.  I was even Snapchatting with Ms. Kristine over at Living Barefoot & Crazy as she's a Seahawks fan.  But the better team won last night, if the Packer defense would have shown up, I'm sure the outcome would have been a little different.  Sigh.  Oh well, there is a long season.
