Stupid People!!

It's one of those days,, people are bugging me..

I'm fully aware that it is me. It's not them. Regardless, they're bugging me.

We all have those days... right??

I learned on the weekend (well, I already knew it, but this was a good way of putting it) that no matter how skinny we are, no matter how pretty we are, when we're mad, bitter, angry, etc..
WE ARE UGLY!!!

Well guess what ladies,,,  today, I AM UGLY!!! And i'm okay with that,,, really I am.

Today needs to end and tomorrow needs to be better.
I don't even know why I feel like this. Nothing is really going on, or wrong.. I'm just UGLY!!!
At least I'm aware of it. I can own up to it, no problem!

So,, another day with no real post.. Sorry..

Maybe tomorrow will be a better day and I'll feel more like posting.

Until then my friends, my Facebook friends... yeah you, with your perfect children, and your perfect HAPPY, lives,, this is for you!!!!!

You Don't fool ME!!!! (These people probably don't read my blog, and probably won't see this post but I feel much better posting it.)

Can you feel my ugliness?!!! lol

Hubby love

This is going to be a quick post,, but it's a good one..

I had a "moment" with my husband on the weekend.

 I actually looked at him and said:
"THAT RIGHT THERE IS BLOG CONTENT FOR NEXT WEEK!"

I went away for the day on Saturday. (I will do a post on its own about that.)
I was gone from 8am until about 10pm. Peter had the girls all to himself the whole day.
He did a great job.

When I got up on Sunday morning, I went to put something in the dishwasher.
When I opened it, the smell that came from it, was literally gross enough to make me gag..
I'm sure you all know the smell. Things had obviously been sitting in there too long without being washed. It was ROTTEN!!

I let out a big "UGGGHH" and closed the door quickly..

Peter looked over at me and said.... are you ready for it??...........


"Yeah, I was going to run that yesterday, but I don't know how!"

***Hand hits forehead!!***

Are you kidding me? We've lived in this house for 3 years and he doesn't know how to run the dishwasher? This is a man who can fix ANYTHING! This is a man who rebuilds motorcycles and builds houses for a living! A man who can wire electricity to a basement, drywall a basement, complete the plumbing in a basement.

But he CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO RUN A DISHWASHER??!!!!!
 WOW!!!

That's all! That's all I wanted to share today...
Would love to hear some of your "proud" hubby moments!

Tuesday!

Hi Ladies,,,

Just want to check in to let you know that I haven't disappeared again..

My grandfather passed away unexpectedly on Thursday. He was 89 and lived a great life, it has just been a shock to the family.

The next two days are jammed pack with the funeral etc., so I probably won't be checking in until then..

Enjoy your  next couple of days and don't forget to hug everyone you love!

Those "Marks"

How many times have you gotten out of the shower, only to RUN past the mirror?

How many times have you looked in that mirror and been close to tears over what you see?

Although I've gotten my pre baby body "Almost" back, there are certain,, well, uh, areas that will just never be "normal" again..
I always tend to focus on those areas. It's like they jump out at me even when I'm just passing by the mirror.

While playing around on Pinterest last night, I found one of the most awesome things I've ever found.

I like it for a few reasons which are obvious, but mainly because, once again, it shows us that we're not alone.

Other women have the stretch marks that we try so hard to cover up, other people have the cellulite and the saggy skin on the belly.
And even though I doubt it almost every day, there must be other women who's boobs look like deflated balloons... (no joke,, it's not right!)

Anyway, take a look at this.... Print it off, hang it in your closet, in your car, on your mirrors.
Hang it wherever you'll see it daily...

At first, I thought it was really just referring to stretch marks, but after reading it over and over, it's really about our whole body....

Hope you like it as much as I do.





A mark for every breath you took, every blink, every sleepy yawn. One for every time you sucked your thumb, waved hello, closed your eyes, and slept in the most perfect darkness. One for every time you had the hiccups. One for every dream you dreamed within me. It isn't very pretty anymore. Some may even think it's ugly. That's OK. It was your home. It held you until my arms could, and for that, I will always find something beautiful in it. ~ Cassie Fox

MEN!!

Ok, so I was going to write about Gracie, and her school, but I've changed my mind.

Instead I need to vent. About men..

How many of your men do things with you that YOU want to do? How many of your men will tag along with you, doing something they probably wouldn't choose to do, just to make you happy??

If you have a man like that,, kiss him!! Seriously, go kiss him.

My hubby, will not do ANYTHING that interests me... NOTHING.. If he doesn't want to do it. We don't do it, or I do it alone... END OF STORY!

My sister and I went on a Christmas Home Tour last year. It was amazing. Some of the homes we saw were out of this world. We got decorating ideas, design ideas, renovation ideas. A couple of times through the night we mentioned how much our hubby's would "love" to see certain houses.
Plus, there was food, there were drinks, we could go out after.. We could make a fun night of it..

That time of year is here again! So, on the weekend, I mentioned to Hubby, that it would be really fun if he and "brother in law" joined us...

His response ~ "UH... NO!! I have no interest in doing something like that... none.. If you want me to meet you for drinks after, fine, but I will not be going with you"

OKAY then!!!

Tonight,, flipping through channels,, we see Dancing with the Stars... it was a really fun, sexy dance.
I say "We should do dance lessons again! We had so much fun when we did it" (we took dance lessons before our wedding)

His response~ "UH....NO!!"

Me~ "Come on! We had so much fun doing that, you know we did. Besides, we need to do something for US.. Something for US to have fun again"
HIM "UH...NO!!! That's fine, but it won't be dance lessons... pick something else"

REALLY??!! REALLY??!!!

I wonder what he will say next time he flips on the UFC and I say "UH NO!! I really have no interest in men beating the pulp out of each other"
Or maybe when his Christmas party comes this year, I will say " UH NO!!  I really have no interest in dining and dancing with a bunch of people that I don't know. I don't feel like spending $400 on dress, hair, makeup, shoes, jewelry, hotel etc..to go hang out with YOUR work friends all night..

Or maybe the next time he wants to go to an antique market on a RAINY, COLD, Sunday morning to find a seat for the motorcycle that he is rebuilding, I will say "UH NO!!! I don't even like motorcycles, and it's raining!"

GRRRRRRRRR....

Do you get my point???
Am I the only woman who has a man like this??

What do you and your hubby do together that is just for you?? Something you both enjoy?!
(And keep it clean, I'm fully aware of the obvious!!) lol

Thanks for letting me vent ladies,, I needed it tonight!!

**** TO CLARIFY~ MY HUBBY IS AMAZING WHEN IT COMES TO DOING THINGS AS A FAMILY. WE HAVE FAMILY DAY, AND HE WILL WILLINGLY DO ANYTHING THAT I SUGGEST AS AN OUTING WITH THE GIRLS.
HE IS ONLY LIKE THIS WHEN I SUGGEST THINGS THAT I AM INTERESTED IN FOR THE TWO OF US TO DO TOGETHER.. IF HE'S NOT INTERESTED, HE DOESN'T WANT TO DO IT..
AS A FATHER THOUGH, HE ROCKS...
I DON'T THINK HE'S EMBARRASSED TO BE SEEN WITH ME IN PUBLIC OR ANYTHING,,,,LOL****
I APOLOGIZE TO MY HUSBAND FOR MAKING PEOPLE THINK OTHERWISE...

I'M ALIVE!

After receiving an email titled "I think I found a pulse." and then "Are you alive?", I realized that I should probably return to the land of the living and at least give you guys an explanation as to where the heck I've been.

First let me say "SORRY" for just abandoning you all.

It started with a surprise 2 week visit from my mother in law, my sister in law and 2 month old niece. Life for those two weeks was.. well.. chaotic. Fun, but busy and chaotic.

I've also had a lot , A LOT of stress. It seems like I just keep getting nailed with one thing after another.
Everything is fine, just one thing after another.

So... .when everyone went home, and things were supposed to go back to normal, I crashed.
Emotionally, physically, mentally... well, probably not mentally. But close!!

I've been spending these past two weeks trying to pull it all back together. Myself, my house, my girls, their routine..  I think that I'm finally getting there.

So... I'm going to be back, but probably not as often as I was. I'm looking at trying to post 3 times a week. I should be able to handle that.
If not, I'll take another break.

From the very beginning, I told myself that if this site started to be an added stress, I would quit.
So, that's what I did for the past month, and I will do it again if it gets to that point..

For now though, I've probably missed you guys more than you've missed me.

I'll try to come back tomorrow with some updates on Gracie and how she's doing with school. It's been so much fun.

Hopefully some of you are still around, and haven't given up on my completely...
I do still have a pulse.... i promise!!!
Thanks for hanging in there ladies.
XO
