we are closing on friday!! it was supposed to be wednesday and i was really freaking out. i am frantically trying to pack this house up~i have now run out of boxes and mac is napping (HALLELUJAH!!) so i can't go get more. the only reason why i have time to type this quick blog is because i'm on hold with the phone company~what a beating.
so you probably won't be hearing from me much this week~i'll be too busy packing, moving, and unpacking.
wish me luck...i'm predicting a lot of wine will be consumed over the next week or so...
there is an ariticle of yahoo that lists some reasons why a man may cheat. here was the one that really got my attention:
The Family Circus
I'm not saying it's right, and I'm not saying it's fair, but some men can feel like they're last in the family pecking order once the gaggle of children dominates schedules, time, and his wife's attention. That doesn't mean that kids drive their fathers to cheat, nor does it mean that families are to blame. It just means that the situation can make some men more vulnerable to be influenced by...
really?? so the man feels left out?? poor guy. forget about the wife who has spent all day feeling like she's been put on the back burner because it's been months since she's been out and had real conversation that doesn't include the words elmo, goldfish, or poo poo. or the mother who sometimes feel she doesn't have an identity anymore because even her husband has started calling her "mom.". does that make us vulnerable to the nice guy at the grocery store that offers to help us to our car? does that mean we can use this as an excuse to cheat??
maybe if these men spent a little more time working on their marriage rather than their short game (golf lingo~for those who don't know), they wouldn't need a list of reasons to cheat...
and have you noticed, there are always reasons/excuses for men's bad hehavior?? he was either frustrated or neglected or some other bullshit reason. a woman is just a bitch or slut.
so i just got done watching a really good movie~the jane austen book club. now, i have never read any jane austen books or seen any movies based on them but this was really good. you should check it out...and i think i will actually read some jane austen books because of it. but not til i finish the good, trasy ones i've got now. i just got done reading valerie bertenelli's book and it was fantastic. i've always liked her and thought she was super cute. and she was married to a rock star so you know the story of her life is juicy. and it was. and i find that you really can't make up things more interesting than real life. now i'm moving on to chelsea handler's book...i can't think of the title right now..something about one night stands. she is hilarious so i'm really looking forward to reading it. then, i'll read tori spelling's new book, stori telling...pretty clever title. now, if i started a book club, these are the kind of books i would want to read. are they classic, well-written novels with true purpose and meaning. well, hell no. but they are sooo fun to read.
i found myself thinking today (shocker, i kn0w) as i was picking up mac's room, that maybe i have a mild case of ocd. i'm one of those that feels everything has it's place and should be there..always. i pick up my house every single day. i pick up mac's room twice a day...before she takes a nap and before she goes to bed. do i know that she will wake up from her nap (which she hasn't had in 3 whole, long days..but who's counting?) and destoy her room once again. of course. but i can't help myself. she has a little tea set that sits on her table that i must find all the pieces for...4 little cups, 4 little saucers and the tea pot. i have literally made myself crazy looking for either 1 missing saucer or 1 missing cup. she has a shrek doll that has shoes that she always takes off. in all my craziness, i have to find his stupid shoes and put them back on him. if she drags out every pair of shoes she owns~looks like she may have a shoe fetish like her mama~then i have to put them back neatly in a row. just to have her do it again. it's insane, i know...but i can't help myself. i have been called monica (from friends) by more than one person in my family. i can not go to bed with a dirty kitchen...it will drive me crazy as i think of food getting dried and crusty sticking to my dishes. i hate for a light to be left on in a room~which my husband does quite frequently~i have to go around and shut them all off. i vacuum my house about 3-4 times a week. i hate when drawers or cabinets are left open...even it it's just slightly. drives me insane. is anyone else like this??
so, mac has not taken a nap for three days..what the hell? whoever thought up this brilliant idea of daylight savings time should be taken out and beaten to death. he/she is now on my list...so far it's them and eve. if you read my previous blog about eve, you know what i'm talking about.
i'm soooo excited that the sex and the city movie is coming out in may!! for those who didn't watch the show, i have every season on dvd and you are welcome to borrow them so you can get caught up...if anything, watch the last season so you'll know where they left off. i'm planning on a big girl's night when it opens...cosmos and all!!!
gotta run...i'm sure there is something out of place around here somewhere just waiting for me.
i know, i know..i keep saying i'm going to get better about blogging. i don't know where all my time goes...oh, yea, that's right..i have kids. and a husband who could definately qualify as the oldest child. i can tell you what i have discovered since i've been away...vh1 has some of the best trashiest t.v. ever!! if you haven't seen "rock of love with bret micheals" you don't know what you are missing. the best way to describe it as the white trash version of the bachelor...and that might be an insult to white trash everywhere. let me give you a little background info on the show and it's "star"~and i use that term very loosely. bret micheals was the lead singer of the band, poison. and let me say, that i loved poison, back in the day. the day being the 80's. i was way in to the hair bands...motely crue, poison, def leppard. i had posters of them all over my walls. and bret micheals was hot..again..back in the day. today, he's just pathetic. i believe he is 47. his hair is totally a wig~i don't care what anyone says. it's waaaay too shiny to be real and he always has that bandana on. always. i believe, to hold the wig in place. he wears eye liner. why? not quite sure. but let's talk about the ladies...again, a term i use very loosely. these women are disgusting. they all look like strippers..and not pretty ones. yes, some are cute but most of them look ten times better when they first get up in the morning than they do when they are all made up. the skirts/dresses are sooo short that i swear, i could see one's camel toe. i kid you not. they all stick their tongues down his throat any chance they get..and he does the same. one woman, while competing in a "peep show" to try and win a date with him, licked chocolate mousse off her huge, fake boobs. he says to this, and i quote, "i'm here to get to know these women on a spiritual level and i can't think of anything more spiritual than a woman licking chocolate mousse off her own breasts." straight face and all. i do believe he was totally serious. and i can totally understand these girls competing for this guy back in the day when he was a huge rock star. but now..he's gross. this is the second season. the end of the first, he asks the two remaining girls if they would both be his girlfriend. what??? one agreed, the other didn't. he dumped the one that agreed to share him. and i believe the other one dumped his sorry ass shortly after. probably because she figured out that he's bald as a cue ball underneath that damn bandana.
what the amazing thing is...i can't get enough of this show. i'm totally hooked. i'm always checking to see if it's on. it's totally addicting. watch at your own risk. but you've been warned.
i keep getting asked if we have moved yet. the answer to that is no. we are having some problems with drees homes. long story short: they cut into the foundation. we're pissed. they are trying to make it right. i will keep you updated..
good news for friday night lights fans!! looks like it's coming back for another season. yea! can't wait to see tim riggins. preferably shirtless.
so what about ol' governor spitzer?? what a tool. but you know, i have some advice for poor guys who can't get any action: go into politics. those guys don't seem to have any problems finding some ass. and did you see his wife standing up there with him? why do they do that?? i'm sorry but to cheat on someone once, is one thing. but to spend thousands and thousands of dollars on hookers? that's cause for divorce. she should have been standing up there wearing a shirt saying, "i'm with the dumb ass that spent our children's college fund on dirty hookers," with a big arrow pointing straight at him. and i heard somewhere that he once busted prostitution rings...did he really think he wouldn't get caught?? what a dumbass.
well, it looks like the oveall theme of this entry is skanky hookers and the dumbass men they are with. perhaps, tomorrow i'll talk about my husband trying to convince me that sperm will prevent breast cancer...taken orally, of course.
hello, people! yes, i'm still here..can't believe it's been over a week since i've blogged. i was really on a roll. but i'm back now. wow..so much to talk about. first thing, i voted last tuesday..not only did i vote, but i caucused. not sure if that's the right spelling or what that really means but i damn sure did it. cory and i both did. this election is so fascinating..history in the making. i can safely say that i despise hillary clinton more and more everytime i see her or hear her voice. she is such a phony....ugh. but enough politics...
we had our walk-thru for the house yesterday. lots of things need fixing. but the builder seemed very receptive to everything that we~or i should say cory~had to say. i let him handle that one~what do i know about trim and cutting in lines, etc. nothing, that's what. so know we just have to work on closing...keep your fingers crossed that everythig goes smoothly.
oh, anyone want a toddler for a week?? our two older kiddos are leaving town for spring break..ashlen is in ft. worth and blake is going on a mission trip to arlington. so we just need to farm mac out to someone and cory and i would be kid free. we'd get wild and crazy. and by wild and crazy i mean i would try and stay up until 10. so, any takers?? anyone??
oh, i've got a new show i'm addicted to....lipstick jungle. it comes on thursdays at 9. i got on nbc.com and watched all the episodes so far, i think there are four or five. it's by the same woman that did "sex and the city" so you can't go wrong. check it out...and check out the guy that plays kirby atwood...can i just say...yum. and i was in need of some new t.v. eye candy. nip/tuck is over for the season and so is friday night lights. so no more christian troy or tim riggins. anyway, check it out if you get a chance.
oh, i heard somehting so ridiculous the other day. jessica simpson is going over to play for the troops. really? i mean, aren't those guys being tortured enough? do they really have to put up with her stupid ass and mediocre talent? i hope she doesn't make them watch one of her movies..didn't the last one make only $400?? what a joke.
let's see what else...got nothing else to talk about right now...
