Seriously Scary Inner Ramblings!

I hate to have to break it to you like this, but I SUCK RIGHT NOW! I am not in a good spot in my brain and I can not even possibly come up with some wonderfully witty post. I don't even have a half assed mediocre post in my head right now!

Do you ever look at life and know that the longer you live, the more you will have to watch people and things die? I am having this realization right now. I don't like it!

I really think if the "people" thought about it hard enough, they would put me in a home! It would be in my best interest!

If they ever do put me in the home, I want to be able to tell everyone "I TOLD YOU SO!"

I knew I needed to be in that damned home and noone would listen!

And, what the hell is it with English these days? When did all of the good words like NOONE start getting split up? I mean, really!? I can not type anything on Word any more without finding out that they have all split up! I don't know if it is full-on word divorce, of if they are just doing a trial separation?

Ok, so maybe, I just needed to vent!!!

Is there something wrong with that?


Ha! How's that for a compound word?!

Two Little Monkeys

Today I had a visitation to go to and Daddo was supposed to be making supper, so the whole family did not starve while I was gone. Much to my surprise, NOT, I got home and supper was not finished, but Daddo was quick to ask me how he would go about uploading pics from the new camera to the computer. This is just some of what I found!
The only bad thing is that this new camera is a whole lot more advanced than the old one and in one pic. I can actually see the plaque on Boog's teeth! UGH and YUCK!

Well, as you all know, I am a serious cheater, when it comes to getting my hats, scarves and now blankies done faster! I am soooooo excited, because my husband got me, among other things, a rectangle loom and I was able to, fairly quickly, get a lap sized baby blanket made for Meeeeema! As you can see, I "helped" her play peek-a-boo with it, with me!
That's all for now! But, I can say that I am going to make a couple more soon!

Look What I Did! Look What I Did!

I made loom socks! I did it! I did it! I did it! Ha! I can't believe I did it! Boog got them, even though I had intended for them to be for Buck-O. His sausage feet would barely squeeze into them, so I asked Boog if she wanted them. She wore one around until the other one was finished, which I found rather comical! Either way, I did it! I am working on a pair for Buck-O now and also have orders/requests from the other kids!

Things Beyond Our Control

Sometimes in life, scratch that for something like MANY TIMES IN LIFE, things happen that are out of our control.

I, a self-proclaimed control freak, am deeply struggling with this right now.

I don't know where to begin, so I won't.

I just feel very sad to know that when things DO happen, that are beyond our control, I just have to sit and watch and wait and feel helpless.

I would like to try and take a progressive approach. I will be working on figuring out how to do something that focuses on a way to "help," even though I know there is nothing I can do, because it feels sooooooo much better than just being stressed and sad!

This is good! Thanks, I am really glad we had this talk! Thanks a bunch for your help! I appreciate all of you, more than you may know!

Succombing to the Pressure!


I can't believe I actually went and did it!

I succombed to the pressure!

I, Momma B, oh, I just can't tell you...

It is just unspeakable!

I really said I was not going to do it!

I, I, I gave my dollar away!


More sobs!

Yes, I can't believe I am admitting it after all that I went through to keep it from all of you Gold Diggers, I gave it to St. Jude's!

That damned Willy's Sweet Shop thing sucked me in like a kid at a candy store, virtually rather than literally!

I got sucked in to doing the right thing, even when I had such great plans for that dollar!

Oh no, that's right, donating money to charity, even if it is the entire IL state refund for the year 2008, is a great idea!

My motto is that one dollar at a time, we can really make a difference! (yes that probably is someone's actual slogan, considering the fact that we all know i am not bright enough to figure it out on my own!)

Have a great day!

Income Taxes

Much to my surprise, while looking at my online banking this morning, I found that the IL State Dept of Revenue was kind enough to direct deposit my refund!

Yippee, yippee, yippee!

I got my money, I got my money!

And, I got it earlier than I got my federal refund, which is both strange and exciting at the same time!

Woo hoo!

I got a whole $1!

Yep, one dollar!

That's right and it's all mine!

No, you can't have it!

Sure, right, I know I posted about random acts of kindness and all, but no way in hell are you honing in on my DOLLAR!

It is like winning the lottery and everyone decides they are your long lost brother!

Well, I'll have you know that there are no gold diggers getting any of my money!!!

And, for all you fair weather friends, FORGET I even told you about my big deposit, because you aren't getting it either!

Good day!
