saving face…book

July 2, 2010

Here is my weekly public service announcement – not that I’ve ever done one but whatev. I leave for the desert soon so F  — it!

Guidelines for not looking like a douche on facebook:

1. don’t “like” your own comments…I’m not sure what that accomplishes. Of course you like it, you posted it…it’s empiracally implied.

2. Even worse don’t “like” your stuff and then comment when no one else has commented

3. Don’t hate on the fact that I post stuff from games – you might not care but somebody does or I wouldn’t post it.

4. Famous people are not your “friends” stop frontin’

5. Don’t feel need to comment on everything – if you have nothing significant or funny to say just keep scrolling.

6. Just because you saw me in public once doesn’t mean I want to add you.

I have two little girls – 2 1/2 years apart. Spending a day with them is pretty close to living in a mental ward. One minute things are serene and peaceful as the girls play with dolls. Two seconds later everyone is in tears and failing limbs at one another. It’s like living with two drunk sorority sisters – ” i love you man, you’re my SISTER….OMG I HATE YOU, die!” Ironically both scenarios have the same speech and driving capabilities.

Now I realize that this is the plight of every parent with more than one child – at least that’s what I keep telling myself to remain sane. However I am an only child and so is my husband. I found my self venting this to him one day and we just looked at each other and realize that this won’t end anytime soon, because of course then there’s puberty. God help us all…


Running on Empty

June 10, 2010

Well here I am – I’m in Florida. Not cool Florida, the kind with Disney but the other Florida in the Panhandle. This region is also known as the Redneck Rivera…for a reason.

Good News is that I’m back to working out after my back finally healed, bad news is that it’s FREAKIN’ HOT.

You see I’m in the military and they tend to emphasize the whole exercise thing, “fit to fight” and shit. So since I’m here for a training class there has been mandatory exercising. This so far has entailed a 4 mile run and a 3.5 mile run…in 95% humidity. In case you don’t know about this kind of climate that is FREAKIN’HOT.  It’s comparable to smoking a pack of cigarettes and drinking all night and then running in the morning.

Normally I can handle the run but not so much down here. I felt like an 80 year old lady…ugh, embarrassing.  I have been going to gym on off days so I’m on my way back and hopefully beyond to those Michelle Obama arms and Gwen Stefani abs that’s I’m working towards 🙂 Today we ran again and I fared better but still in the back of the pack. I don’t know what Friday’s work out brings but I know it involves sandbags…and it ain’t no cornhole tournement.


not the whole chair

My kid is too smart. She’s 2 and has a quiet mischievous air about her. Today I had to put her in time-out and usually she just gets up out of the little stool.

So I set her down and said, “Don’t leave the stool!” I walk away and I hear, scoot scoot. She’s headed back towards the den (where the TV is) and she’s scooting her self on the little stool across the house. I had to take her and the stool back to the corner…trying to suppress my laughter as I told her to go back to time-out.

It reminded me of the below clip. Lucas can’t leave the couch so he takes it with him…


Now what do I do with myself??

2/365 – Death by Facebook

So I have officially submitted all my assignments for the semester. Which is very strange since I was like 2 weeks behind and then I finished a week early. I have a nagging sense that I forgot something – but I’ve triple checked, and nothing is left.

I now have a week or two to laze about and not have any educational responsibility. Unfortunately I accomplished all my piddily stuff while I was procrastinating for my class. whoopsy. I guess I’ll clean something now…


sigh of relief

…well kind of. I finished my big paper and it’s in. I’m pretty sure I didn’t do it like he wanted but I was locked into a topic. So I just threw something at the wall and we’ll see if it sticks. According to my calculations I can get as low as a 60 and still get a B for the semester. to be continued..

Unga, The Caveman

I woke up yesterday after sleeping most of the day so I could work that night. However a funny thing happened on the way to the daycare – my sore back rapidly deteriorated and I was walking cro-magnon style the rest of the day. The pain was so bad I called for a doctor’s appointment, they couldn’t get me in until next week.

My back by this time was making me almost cry so I went to the urgent care center. I first had to give a urine sample – wasn’t sure how that related….ooooohhh. I guess they had to make sure I wasn’t Dr. House’n it. But they got me off of work, made it so I don’t have to workout for a week and most importantly, some drugs.

SO my research paper has slowed a bit since researching in bed is more difficult than you’d think. I’ll be back at work tonight so I’ll get more done then.
