I admit I am easily entertained with my Feedjit tracker. I love to see where everyone is coming from and it gives my insecurity just a little hope that there is someone reading my ramblings. The one thing that kind of creeps me out though is the google searches that comes up.

One search was for nasty soccer moms. What a surprise they got when the nasty I was talking about was a litter box. Of course the link below me was about a soccer mom that takes it in two holes, why did Mcperv click on the link about litter boxes, even creepier.

Another kind of saddened me, it was I hate my mom. Of course I am sure I have complained enough on here and said the word hate so up I pop on the search. I mean to really hate your parents is just a sad situation and of course I imagined a whole horrible life for this little girl (how I know she is a tormented little girl is beyond me).

I must say though skinny bitches have more fun because every since I have post my OSB I have gotten a couple of skinny bitches searches come up. I guess more motivation to stick to my plan!!!

As I leave I remind you to please vote for Sarah V here. Remember everytime you vote your entered in a drawing for $1000 shopping spree, who can turn that down??? Thanks again for those who have voted and continue to support us!!

Gone Fishing

So being the only girl in the house has benefits. One of them I exercised today. Keith was taking the boys fishing, something I will never have the desire to do. I got a free pass because fishing is a male bonding time in our family. Ha Ha I had the whole day to do whatever I want, with out kids, where ever I wanted. Guess what I choose to do.............. no I didn't I didn't go to lunch ..... no I didn't watch a movie.............of course I didn't clean the house, I chose out of everything to take a NAP!! Seriously, what does this say about my life? I have to admit it was so nice and peaceful to just lay in silence and close my eyes without worrying about anyone else being asleep or not. Lovely, lovely I say!!!

I also wanted to add a couple of picture of Keith since I forgot to on this post So Here is my Pooh Bear

Operation Skinny Bitch

For my journey to a more likeable body I have discovered this blog. There is also a button on my page for this! I think it is a great read and a good idea to have support for this journey. I also plan to start this push up program The good thing about that program is I can't make the excuse of not going to the gym because I have the kiddos. I can just do it in the comfort of my home and it doesn't take a lot of time. So no excuses on that one. Once we are moved into the house I will be able to start back to the gym on a regular basis. I am still sticking to the low carb diet so I feel I have a handle on the food aspect as long as I just get going on exercise operation skinny bitch will be a success!!

Testing 1, 2, 3

Thanks toThis blog I think I might of learned to add a signature to my post. If all goes well it will be there when I press publish this post and even better it should show up everytime I post, how jazzy is that? I just learned my first lesson and that is to put some space in between or else it comes out a little weird looking!

One Crazy Ride

My marriage has truly been one crazy ride, we have had so many ups and downs, good times and bad. My husband has seen me at my best and still loved me through my worst. Instead of making this a sappy lovey spill that no one is ever really impressed with I am going to keep it short and just list the ten things about Keith so you can know him better ad how he fits into stories I tell.

1. He love movies, all kinds but his least favorite is chick flicks

2. He loves to play video games

3. He likes to look good and takes a long time to get ready, I am talking girl long

4. He prefers to drive and really hate to ride as a passenger

5. He is very funny and likes to make jokes

6. He has a hard time rememberin names and often calls people by the wrong name

7. He thinks girls should not fart.............ever

8. He is great in bed

9. He loves rollercoasters and amusement parks

10. He is a great dancer

So there you have it just a little about my wonderful husband!

I'll do it

How come I can not say no? I know I am over committing myself but I just keep agreeing to do things. I am voluntering as a Precinct Captain for our local field office for the Campaign for Change, this is something I really care about. It is a lot of work that I didn't realize but it is fun stuff that I like doing. I am also the treasurer for a local grass root type organization for local supporters of Obama. The lady in charge is so sporadic an unorganizied and it drives me crazy. I want to tell her to go away and come back once she has it together but noooo I don't. She asks me if I could do something and I jump right in there and say no problem. During a meeting they ask about veterans and of course I jump right in there to offer support. I didn't really commit to much more than trying to find people to help so I spoke to my husband who is also a veteran and he agreed to help. I am the same way at work and keep taking on more than my share. It would be fine if everyone had the attitude to do all they can there but instead there are a bunch of lazy's that sit back while people like me do way more work. I guess I will learn my lesson one day until then I will just be stretched thinly!

Oh yeah did you go here to vote for Sarah V today?

Tuesday, August 19, 2008


Ok I know that it can be very annoying when people solicited votes for online contest. I do pretty much always vote when someone asks so now is my turn to ask. My really great friend Sandy's daughter Sarah V.entered a back to school photo contest. Sarah is a great girl, a really refreshing teenager. If she wins she gets a $250.00 shopping spree and also a chance for her picture to be used in the add for the mall. The good thing is if you vote for Sarah V you are entered in a drawing for a $1000.00 shopping spree. Don't forget how fun online shopping can be. You can vote once a day up until September 1st here so please please please go vote for Sarah V

Big Daddy

Do you guys remember this movie? I really love that movie and Kye and I had to reenact a scene from it. On Sunday we were waiting for Keith to get out of a movie and had about 30 mins to spare so the only thing still opened in the shopping center was a Family Dollar. As you can see it is not a high class shopping place and the workers seemed to be disgruntle. When we get inside Kye yells "I got to go pee". He is still pretty newly trained on the potty so when he says this I jump into action. We run up to one of the previously mentioned workers and I ask if he can use the restroom. The said worker grunts a little, looks up from her push broom and says "no public restroom" and immediately returns to sweeping. So I said in my most pleasant voice "oh no problem, thank you anyway". I then look at Kye and said "Come on Baby Boy let's go pee on their sidewalk". We proceeded outside and behind a pillar Kye relieved himself. He was so funny and thought it was the coolest thing. I had him do the three shake limit and we proudly walked back in to continue our shopping.

Brotherly Love

When I got pregnant with Kastan I really didn't know what I was in store for. I was blessed with a beautiful baby boy that was the most laid back, loving boy. Even though he was a dream child I was miserable the first 3 months. We lived in Hawaii away from any family and were truely on our own with this precious little boy. The precious little boy did not sleep more than two hour spurts but I was determined to be the best mom ever so I struggled through it. I refused to show weakness to anyone, after all the stories you ever hear are these wonderful tales of instant bonding and undying love a mother has. I felt like I missed the boat on that one. I mean I did think he was the cutest baby ever but other than that he was so much work, not to mention the wear and tear on my body. I felt guilty for thinking it but I did dream of my before baby life, the one where I could sleep when ever I wanted. I remember the first night in the hospital I looked down at Kastan and said you are going to have to be a good baby because I am not a very good Mommy. We all made it through those horrible first 3 months and he has lived up to every word of my first night request! He is such a smart, caring and compassionate little boy, our family was complete. I didn't want another baby, didn't think I could handle another espically the newborn stage. I did get pregnant again with a surprise when my husband got back from overseas. I just didn't know what to feel, I mean it wasn't something we planned or even struggled for. I felt so guilty for Kastan, he was the center of our world, we did everything for just him. I was scared for myself and those dreadful beginnings. I knew there was no turning back but I didn't know how to handle it. When we told Kastan we were having another baby he didn't want it and it just made me want to scoop him up in my arms and keep his world all the same. Then Kye came into our world, he was my firecracker from the start. Kastan came to the hospital to meet Kye and he walked in and said that is my brother and the pride I saw in his face I knew everything was going to be alright in our family. Their bond was instant, Kastan was a great big brother from day one. He sacrificed having Mommy and Daddy all to himself without ever complaining. He loved to jump in and help with anything that he could. They are each others buddies. Listening to their conversations just melts my heart, watching them take care of each other reassures me I did the right thing. Knowing that they will always have each other comforts me. Don't get me wrong Kastan does big brother him sometimes like this morning when he told him to drink the soapy bath water but that is made up for when Kye crawls on the couch and out of the blue gives Kastan a kiss. Their relationship is natural and has completed our family!

Small Town Life

I grew up in a city, not a huge one like New York or LA but a pretty good size one. I always kind of looked down on small towns as boring and lame. I joined the military and traveled around a lot and have finally settled down in a small town, I am talking population 37,000. There are things about it that really get on my nerves such as taking 30 mins to get to a grocery store and also the lack of options for shopping. Today though I realized that there are actually alot of things I like. People are so much nicer and speak to you all the time. There is a total sense of community and family. It is small enough that you will pretty much see someone you know when your out. This weekend is the county fair. I am not big on the hanging out with the carnies but I did volunter to work at the ticket booth and it was a good time. Tomorrow I will take the boys and post pictures of our fun times!

80 Years Young

Today we went to have a birthday Party for Keith's Granny. She turned 80, that is a lot of life. The world was such a different place when she was growing up, I just think about how much technology she has had to adjust to. She is such a sharp little lady and still lives by herself. Today Keith played a game of rummy with her and she beat him. She loves to play rummy, do crossword puzzles and play bingo, that must be the key to keeping your mind on track or something, it seems all old people enjoys those activities. I can't imagine it is for the excitement. She did say the funniest thing as we were all sitting there with a little bit of a lull. She says "I am sorry but I am trying to stay up it is just they switched my medicine and I am high as a kite". I couldn't help but giggle.

Stress Reliever

Work has been pretty stressful as I have been complaining about lately so to combat that I had a fun girly night. My friend and her almost 16 year old daughter and I went to the mall to walk around. I picked up some shirts for work and a pair of pants, nothing special but it was nice to just walk around and chit chat about stuff. It was also really neat to be around a teenage girl. She is a really good girl that makes good decisions. She's really refreshing. She was talking on and on about these Jonas Brothers. I was listening ad pretty impressed until she gave me the deal breaking news. Joe Jonas often wears white skinny jeans. I can not deal with any boy in skinny jeans. Just makes my skin crawl and I almost break out in hives. Which lead to a conversation on how I will never let my boys wear them in my house. I do mean ever. My friend told me that in the teenage years you pick your battles and clothes that are not offensive usually don't make the battle list. Now I am all for letting them be who they are but I will not do skinny pants for boys. That is wear I draw the line. Kastan has a pair of jeans that he tore the knee out of and he was so excited about it. He thought it was cool and it made me cringe. However I give in and let him wear them as long as it isn't a big event or anything special. Kye picked the ugliest velcro strapped CARS shoes that light up. Everything in my body said don't get them but he loved them so I did. He loves those shoes, Kastan loves the hole in the knee pants. I can give a little but once again I draw the line with skinny pants for boys!!!

Wonderful Wednesday!!!

OK nothing really all that wonderful but I figured I needed to do something a little happier because you guys were probably tired of my whining and complaining. So on to wonderful thoughts and stories. I must say lately my husband has been in a wonderful mood. We have been joking and talking alot lately. He had a funny conversation the other day and I think I will share it with you.

Him: I need to get some new clothes for my new workspot

Me: Yeah you need some new slacks so you can make a staple

Him: You want me to make a staple

Me (realizing that statement didn't make sense but not wanting to admit it): Yeah you need to make a staple

Him (forcing me to admit it was a dumb statement): Seriously, you

Me: (less confidence this time): Yeah

Him: And how do I make a staple?

Me (busting out in laughter): Ok it was a dumb statement but you know what I mean.

I really have a hard time admitting when I am wrong and I tired to hold my ground but I eventually had to fold.

Tantrum Tuesday

Aunt flo came to visit yesterday. I really hate her, my stomach hurts, I'm fat and I am tired so I stole this idea from Kim and instead of a Moody Monday I am having a tantrum Tuesday!

1. Work can kiss my ass. I would love to walk into my supervisors office and bitch slap her. I am feeling moody but unlike you I force a smile on my face and I am very cordial to everyone. Keep your fucking grumpiness to yourself or move your office back down the hall.

2. Kye if you don't go to bed before 11:30 tonight I am going to sell you on Ebay!

3. Daycare provider please tell me Kye isn't taking 4 hour naps during the day resulting in my issues with #2

4. Kastan I promise a diet of toaster strudles and cookies can not be healthy, please start eating like a normal child!

5. Cats please quit shitting, really just stop that function all together. I am sick of the litter box. Between the boys and cats I have dealt with way to much shit. I should only have to deal with it win I am wiping my own ass at this point in my life.

Well I do feel a little better now that I got all that off my chest on to have a wonderful Wednesday!

That's so gross

Today's post is going to be about random things that gross me out. No reason for writing them just purely a random post.

1. Teeth are sooo nasty. I realized this when Kastan would come up to me asking me to feel his loose tooth. Just ewwwwww. Not to mention I am carrying around a little box of his teeth from this day.

2. Toes, they just look weird and hearing about some peoples toe nails are brittle just gives me the heebie jeebies. Take care if your gator sticks!

3. The fact that boys are not born with a good pee aim and it takes years for them to develop a good aim.

4. Littler boxes, I wish I would of thought of this nasty little thing before I ran out and got my boys 2 kitties.

5. Floaties in drinks, can not drink after my kids, ga-ross

6. Vomit, I think someone forgot to give me my mom super vomit badge because I just can't handle it. There will be no stories of me rubbing anybodies forhead or holding their hair for them while they throw up. Sorry but your nasty ass will have to shower anyways, no reason for me to get ear you and no I don't care your only 3!

7. Bad breath, seriously there is no reason for dragon breath. There are too many mints, gums and just a swig of anything can put the fire out. I know I can taste mine when it is a little tart and I fix it. There is no reason to be walking around smelling like you had a hot shit sandwich, extra shit hold the bread for lunch!!!

These are just a little of the nasties I hate, feel free to share yours!

Updating the place

Well as you see I finally broke down and jazzed up the place around here. I must admit though it wasn't my first choice. I had it all decked out in a different background that I loved and then I went to read Dena's blog and realized it was the exact same background. I knew that would look very Single White Female of me so I settled for a different one. No one on my blog list has this background so I don't feel like such a copy cat. I wish I had more ideas on making the place look good but I will take it one step at a time and go with what I have now!

My Big Boy

I was just watching Kastan play his PSP. I am so amazed that this is my little boy. He is so smart, polite, caring and well mannered. I am very lucky to have such a good kid. He is really into video games and the computer. I get emails from various kids websites saying that your son Kastan has signed up for a membership to their clubs. It cracks me up that he has my email address memorized and knows how to enter the info in order to sign up. He is just a whiz on the keyboard, his little fingers just flies as he plays the games. The other day he asked how are websites made and I told him he would have to read about it. I told him to go to Google and enter "making kids websites", he did and is now working on a website for hisself. When he gets it done I will post the link.

I was held hostage today in a gas station bathroom today and the gunman was my ass. So sorry to be so gross but seriously I will turn 34 next month is that old enough to require Depends? I mean no way ever could I overcome the expense of diapers again, we just got rid of them a couple of months age from Kye.

By the way do you know how embarassing it is to have to run into a gas station bathroom? All those times the paparazzi thought Britney was crazy, maybe just maybe she had the shits.

So there I was stuck on the tiolet with the sink water running to conceal the sound and trying to give courtesy flushes to keep the smell to myself and I thought about the beginning of my relationship with Keith. We were on our third date and just left the movies enroute to a club. I feel a little grumble in my belly and I know that I am not going to make it. I ask him nicely to turn into 7-11. He says but the club is only a block over. I was on the verge of tears and exploding so I snap "JUST PLEASE PULL OVER" He does and I do the squeezed-booty shuffle inside. When I ask for the restroom the overgrown ape working there says it is not public without even looking at me. I beg him to please let me use it, I promise to never tell anyone that I used the bathroom there (hahahah beotch I am telling the story all over the internet now). Finally looking up at me he must of recognized the desperation in my face and he let me use it. It was a total Waynes World scene in that poor bathroom.

I don't say anything as I return to the car and neither does Keith. We both pretend that it is normal to take a 20 min break at the local 7-11 prior to any date. We went on to enjoy the rest of the night never mentioning the fact that I almost shit my pants. In fact we only talked about it like 2 years into our marriage. I guess he knew from that point on what a lady I was!!

In trying to keep up with my blogging everyday I was reflecting on different people in my life I could blog about and my BIL came to mind. It is actually kind of a fun wierd ironic story. We were stationed together in the Army and went on a deployment to Bosnia together. Both of us were single during that time so the flight home from the deployment neither one of us had family waiting for us, just a bus ride to the barracks. I remember deboarding the plane next to him and both of us being so freaking happy to be back in the US but still feeling lonely. We looked at each other and I said this is sad and he replied it is, we all got shit faced that night. The first time my sister saw him I was checking my mail and he went by, she asked who he was because she thought he was cute. They started dating and I got jealous, not because I wanted him, get that perverted shit out of your mind right ow but jealous because I could tell my sister was falling in love. I felt like I was losing my best friend, I didn't think she could love him and be my friend. In the begining he was a little insecure about it also so we put her right in the middle, each grabbed an arm and pulled as hard as we could. This lasted about a year, I don't know how she survived it. S-L-O-W-L-Y I started maturing and realized I had a sister no matter what. Then guess what happened...... I gained a brother! In fact it was a win win situation for me once I let it happened. He really is a great guy, he provides a great life for my sister, he loves her deeply and he is a great father. His professioal accomplishments are out of this world and that kind of sucks becuase his parents won't recognize anything he has accomplished. He is currently doing his second tour of duty in Iraq as a US Marshall and I am so proud of him. So just be aware of people in your life because in the long run they could become family!

My Men

Tomorrow while I am working a looonnnngggg busy day tomorrow at the job I hate the K's will be chillin out together. My husband is off tomorrow so he is keeping the boys home from daycare and just hanging out. The boys are so excited which brings up a question to me. Why are Dad's so much cooler than Mom's to kids? A day with Mom has to be packed with a three ring circus, trip to the beach, movies and popcorn that is carefully explained to them the day prior so they can build up the enthusiasm. Dad on the other hand can just say wanna hang out and the boys jump for joy. I don't get it, don't they know I am the coolest????

5 Pounds Closer

So I don't want to speak to soon but I have lost 5 pounds so far. I am really motivated and have stuck to my diet. I do see myself sticking it out and really getting into shape. I have yet to commit to an organized effort for working out and exercising but I am just moving more. I still have a long way to go to get to where I want to be but at this point I will take anything!

Over Worked

So I didn't want to tell you guys because then I would have some accountablility but here it goes this month I set a goal to try and blog everyday. Sounded easy enough in my head but here it is the fourth and I know it is going to be a hard goal to stick too. Work is just a mess we are down 5 people in my unit because it sucks and smart people leave. I am now "helping out" by doing my old job and my new job, neat huh? I went for the new job because the old job was blah but lucky me, I get to do both jobs. I have enough time to just about half ass both positions. So needless to say after long days of being annoyed it is hard to come home and focus on something fun and light hearted to blog about. Changing this to a positive though me complaining about having nothing to blog about did get me one more day closer to my goal!

Sunday, August 3, 2008


Yesterday Kye and I had the funniest conversation, it went like this:

Kye: Mommy I got to go to doctors

Me: Why?

Kye: I got a heart in my belly.

He then proceeded to lift his shirt and suck his stomach in and out to prove he had a heart beating in his belly. He is so cute and funny I just wantto eat him up!

I Really Hate..........

Grocery shopping. It is just so very nerve racking. First of all the prices are going up up and away. It also seems like we are getting less for those prices also. Something has got to give here people! Once I get past the price issue I am left with my fellow shoppers. Yesterday I was shopping along at an average pace when I had the speeder pass me. It would be fine and dandy if her speeding ass rushed to the check out to leave but no she was just speeding to the next item she needed and then doing an abrupt stop. It was like the grocery store verison of the scene from Meet The Parents, where they were racing from stop light to stop light. From the speeder you have the other extreme of slow pokes. I mean as I mentioned I am distraught over prices so I realize a little extra time might be needed to make a selection but please just move your damn cart out of my way so I can get passed you! Then you have that one person that just stays behind you and practically follows you everywhere. I think these people don't make lists for themselves so they buy what you buy in hopes of solving their grocery problem. It is so annoying, just go around me and get a grocery life of your own, afterall at every stop I am very cafeful to parralel park this cart as to leave enough passing room. I am also the express lane Nazi, I really give the stare down to people that have 21 items in a 20 item express lane even if I am not in it. I just think it is rude to hold up the true express shoppers. It annoys me far more than it should, really it shouldn't be as big of a deal as it is to me. I did manage to survive the trip but I really hate grocery shopping!!!

I will admit that I have never really been to involved in politics. I just didn't know where to get started and what really was important to me. Funny, I spent ten years in the military it seems I would be a bit interested in being aware of my world around me. I guess I just figured someone else smarter than me could handle that part and I could just go on living my life. Things started to change for me around the Bush/Kerry election. I tried to pay attention to debates but didn't really do any research to find out the candidates stance on issues. This year has been really exciting, I mean in our life time a woman and a black American ran for the democratic seat. We are witnessing history and I am inspired. I am a huge Obama supporter, that man truly gives me hope for a better country. Our economy is in the crapper, our relationship with other countries are goiing down hill fast, too many people in this country struggle with no health insurance. Change needs to happen. I realize that the president doesn't have the power to solve all of these problems but I feel that Obama inspires people to get out and make changes happen for themselves. It is apparant that Obama is great at speaking and would represent our country well. I believe so much in Obama that I am volunteering at a Obama supporters office opening in my small town. We will work on finding more Obama supports and getting people registered to vote. I am so excited and look forward to learning and the overall experience.
