Things I'm Ashamed Of

Things I'm ashamed of

1. Sometimes I encourage the children to ask their daddy if they can get in the shower with him just so I can get out of giving them a bath and I can also get some quiet time. I hope he doesn't read this...

2. Today I ate about 20 shortbread cookies in one sitting. Then my children found me hunched in the corner of my closet and I ended up sharing my last 4 cookies. I've really got to work on sharing with others....

3. I take advantage of the fact that Slaten is big enough to do things on his own. "Slaten, would you please grab me a bottle of water?" "Slaten, would you please open the door and let the dog out?" "Slaten, would you please rub my feet while I sit here eating this debbie cake that I won't share with you?" *Please note I do not really make my 4 year old watch me eat debbie cakes, I hide in the closet*

4. Somehow my children got the idea that only their father can change batteries in toys. They say, "Oh, this needs a battery. Guess daddy can do it when he gets home." I haven't corrected this error in their thinking.

5. Sometimes at night when I can't sleep I kick Sweet Husband in the leg to make him stir so I don't feel so 'alone'. If he stirs enough I started sighing in his ear until he rolls over and holds me. I can be so needy at times.

6. Disney Channel Stars in my favorite Pandora station.

7. I have to watch Goosebumps everyday. But not because of the children.. I don't know if I'm really ashamed of this because Goosebumps is clearly one of the greatest shows ever made. AmIright?

8. I can't fit any more clothes in my drawers and I still have 2 hampers full. This is why I never like to get caught up on laundry. That and I genuinely hate doing laundry...

9. When I don't sleep well I act like a 5 year old. Don't put it past me to lay on the floor while kicking and flailing about. It's a miracle I found a husband. 

10. Today in Target I went to check Cullen's diaper because he made a rather loud noise and I stuck my hand right into... well... you know. I then had to wheel around the store to the bathroom where a sales person asked me if she could help me. I then held up my hand and said, "Just going to the bathroom".... She didn't seem to anxious to help me after that. Sidenote: I did wash my hands and I didn't touch the buggy handle so no worries about your littles mouths on the cart handles after I use them.

Whew, it felt good to get that all off my chest....

Things That Irritate Me (today anyway).

Things That Irritate Me
(today anyway )

1. When I press the 'ON' button on my remote it is suppose to turn my DVR and TV on. But if it turns the TV on first then you have to turn it all back off and try again. I always end up hitting the button too many times and my TV just turns on and off, on and off, until I get really frustrated and have to walk over and manually turn the TV on. Aren't we past the times of having to get up while watching TV???
Am I right??

2. Short socks. My shoes favorite snack.

3. Looking over at a red light only to find someone staring at you. I mean rude, how am I suppose to pick my nose if you're looking at me??

4. The garbage can across the street. One day a delivery truck dropped it off and it hasn't moved since. Well except for when a firetruck hit it... but that's another story.. well I'll tell that story next because it irritates me too.

5. When people burn trash in their backyard on a windy/dry day and don't own a hose. Apparently that results in yards catching on fire... geniuses.

6. Feeling like a criminal while trying to buy sudafed. "No ma'am, I'm not making meth *achoo* I really just want to breathe out of my nose."

7. Changing a diaper in the front seat of my car. Thank goodness for leather..... Next time kid go before we leave the house.

8. Finding weird sticking stuff in my hair. I don't even know what this is!??!??!!

9. The fact that there is a box of chocolates on my counter, but I can't eat them because they're not for me. *pout*

10. That there is no such thing as a self cleaning car. I mean it's 2012 for goodness sake!! Weren't we suppose to be at least in flying cars by now?

Random (day after) Thursday

Random (day after ) Thursday

1. Last Friday I took Slaten out on a date. Just the two of us. We went to Chick Fil A and then bowling. Did anyone else know that they can decide who gets bumpers and who doesn't now? So this gal didn't get to use the bumpers like I was hoping for... Yes, I was beat by a 4 year old. 79-69. He rubbed it in my face for several days. Never. taking. him. bowling. again.

2. I apparently can't handle Sweet Husband going out of town for work. It was only 2 nights, but every time I got off the phone with him I cried. I'm thinking he should never take a 3rd shift job. I also couldn't understand why he couldn't spend an hour on the phone with me. I mean I know he was working and all, but didn't he understand that I was at home alone with 2 children who could clearly smell my fear???

3. I went to my first bull riding event. Obviously, I'm not that "country". I couldn't handle it very well. Everyone else just watched on like it was normal for men to sit on top of very big animals who were clearly not pleased with this. I sat covering my mouth and cringing every time a cowboy fell off. I wanted to stand up and yell, "What's wrong with you people?!??? Can't you see this is dangerous!!!?" But I just sat with my mouth wide open and looked back and forth from the excited crowd to the young men getting run over by ferocious bulls. A sport I'll never understand.

4. You know those days when you're trying to get you and your kids ready by yourself and your youngest finds a can of paint that isn't closed all the way and he throws it at your kitchen curtains, all down the wall, and onto the floor? Yes, we had one of those mornings on Sunday.

5. Or how about those walmart trips where your youngest breaks 3 pie crusts, throws things out of your buggy 4 times, and then plunges to the floor (unharmed, but in front of witnesses)? Yeah, we had one of those mornings too.

6. I had to use a coupon this morning for a prescription and I had to apologize for the suspicious looking stains all over it. I quickly told her it was just juice, but it really resembled blood. She eyed me for a little while....

7. Nutella on coconut bar cookies and you're welcome.

8. Slaten thinks the girl on the Grinch is, in his words, " As cute as she can be"... he was talking about the cartoon one.

9. My brother sent our Wii back because it was messing up just 3 weeks after we got it. They fixed it and sent it back. My brother called to tell me they found the problem. Apparently someone thought it was a gumball machine. They taped the penny to the box...

10. Did anyone else forget how delicious pizza rolls are? Because I did. I have had them for 3 meals this week... Thank you Totinos for reminding me just how awesome you really are.

These Were a Few of My Scariest Things

I'm BAAAaakkk. Let's start off by clearing up a few things, shall we? Number one, I am not dead. Number two, I am not pregnant. Apparently those are the only two reasons people would quit blogging. My reason? Laziness at its finest. So I'm just going to jump right back into it.... or I might take another break. Only time can tell..

Things That Terrified Me As a Child

Porcelain Dolls
I had a best friend growing up (I won't know names, she knows who she is) who had a ton of porcelain dolls in her bedroom. During the day I was fine with the dolls. They were pretty with their milky white skin, smooth silky hair, and their antebellum dresses. But by night they were absolutely terrifying. She would walk out of her room to go get something and I would huddle in the corner glancing from doll to doll until she came back. I swear they were looking at me, wanting to dig their porcelain fingernails into my skin... wanting to change me into a doll... wait never mind that was an Are You Afraid of the Dark episode...

The Peanut Butter Solution
I know, I know I've mentioned this one before, but you guys you don't understand. The horror of this movie!!!! The kid went in the house and he lost his hair and there was peanut butter and hair and... okay, that's all I remember, but it was horrifying!

The D.A.R.E. Program
This program had me terrified of Drug Dealers. In my mind they were all big scary men who would come up to young girls and hold a gun to their head and say, "Do these drugs or I'll kill you!". So I'd lie awake at night trying to come up with my answer because just saying "NO" to a big scary guy with a gun to your head seemed like the wrong idea, if you asked me.

Drinking and Driving
When I was small my mother use to drink and drive. Yes, you heard me right. She had no shame in holding that Pepsi bottle at her lips while operating her motor vehicle. For the life of me I couldn't figure out why she would disobey the radio commercial so boldly. Had she no shame? I was so scared that we were going to get pulled over and she would be dragged off to jail and my brother and I would motherless. Want to know a secret? She still does it!! She'll never learn.

Caffeine Pills
Thank you, Jessie Spano for that one. I'm so excited, I'm so excited, I'm so scared!!! Never will I ever touch a caffeine pill.

My Buddy Doll
How could I not me scared of this doll? He's Chucky! Just look at him! *Shudders*

One time my brother, his friend, and I were walking to our house. We spotted a sweet little kitten on the road so we walked towards it to pet his little sweet kitty head. As we approached the sweet little kitty turned into a psychotic raccoon who was foaming at the mouth. We ran screaming and the crazy raccoon chased after us. It took several weeks for me to be able to walk outside without fear of rabies.

Oh, how I love childhood memories. Nothing warms the heart more than to remember the fears of my youth. Thankfully I am over these fears.... well least the DARE program doesn't scare me anymore.
