SITS...The Blogger's Disease

So earlier in the week I stumbled upon this awsome site neatly abbreviated SITS or The Secret is in the Sauce. On said website they support each other by visiting fellow bloggers and commenting if they have this button on their profile proudly displayed. Every day they have a featured blogger and for the past 6 weeks I guess they have been giving away prizes randomly. This week they are giving away this...

Apple 4G iPod Nano in Silver. Plays up to 1,000 songs, 4 hours of video or 3,500 pictures! Do I NEED it? Hell no! But I think it would be cool to have to transfer all these songs off of my computer to make more room for better things like pictures! :)

So, I did was I was obligated to do per the terms of the contest. Now let us wait and see if I randomly win! And good luck to all my other fellow SITStas!!!

50 ODD (Not Really) Things About ME!

I got this in an email today from one of my best friends. I thought it was funny and, of course, answered some of the things pretty funny so I decided to make it a blog for Saturday. I was thinking, why not make this a little ritual on my part as well. Kinda like I see on here from a lot of people. They pick a day and make that day of the week a special day and stick to it. Like Mad Monday or Freaky Friday and they write something in particular on that day. I think I will make mine Survey Saturday and pick a survey that tells the blogging world all about little old (and I don't mean that literally because I am NOT old!)ME! I think it will be fun and you bloggers (and stalkers alike) will get to know me slowly but surely! YAY! This is going to be fun. Maybe.

Until next time.

Ok, so tonight is "gather all the trash" night so I can put it out in the morning and I had Kenzie grab the trash in the bathroom and then grab the worms out of the fridge and run them out to the can. I told her to put them in the fullest trash can so I only had to put one out this week since I have to get up for an early appointment tomorrow. Well she comes in almost throwing up from who knows what :rolling my eyes: (drama queen) and says the one can by the recycle bin WREEKS! I was like, ok, so did you put the trash in THAT bin then? And she was like, no, there was nothing in it! (Kinda dark back there for a short kid!) So I went out to investigate and OH MY GOSH!!!!! I came in and got the tongs for the fish tank, mixed up a soap and bleach concoction and grabbed Balla's industrial outdoor light. I donned my tank top over my nose, opened up the smelly container and the non-smelly container and leaned in. Laying there, in the container, was a dirty diaper?! Um, HELLO? No one that I know that has children in DIAPERS has been to my house lately! Mrs. Paruser uses cloth and the last time the Southern Bell threw away a diaper I watched her bag that thing up!!! (I clearly remember because she was nice about it and I laughed. Hysterically.) This thing was NOT bagged up!!! The WORST of the smell was coming from the fly bag. While they work WONDERS, once they are all used up and the water is all dried up, yeah. Not so nice smelling. I pulled that thing out of the bottom of the trash can and there were those little white worms all in the Ziploc bag(making throw up sounds)...thank goodness I put them in a ziploc bag!!!...and it just STANK!!!(NOW who's the drama queen?!) But back to the diaper! Why in the hell would you do that to someone, for real?? I KNOW it was my redneck neighbors. They are...well redneck is a nice word for them! Luckily I can get the stench out of my can, but HOLY COW did that stink!!!!

What The Hell Is Wrong With Me?

Lately, the tears come freely. I can pretty much turn them on at will. Sometimes they even come without notice. I’m not quite sure WHY this is happening, but most of the time it is pretty fucking friggin’ annoying. (Still on the curse word diet.) Maybe it is because Balla leaves soon on a 7 month journey to that ugly place they call the Middle East? I mean I seem to turn on the waterworks as soon as he walks out the door for a week underway period so it’s possible! Maybe it is because my children seem to be demanding constant entertainment this summer. More so than last year? So much so that I feel like I am constantly on the go during the day and when I finally stop, it’s dinner time, and I have forgotten to take something out of the freezer so we end up at some dumb restaurant which only makes the day even worse. But then maybe it is just stress because my brain is full and I never get enough sleep so I feel like shit crap all the time and the kids do nothing but whine and bitch complain and it seems like being at home just sucks without Balla and I know I am going to have to do it without him for 7 FRIGGIN’ MONTHS! AHHHHHHHHH! (BTW, I really am doing well on my diet...when I'm not so upset! I just use babies! Thanks Squirt!)

Yeah, see, I need therapy. But at least I can admit it. Isn’t that one of the 12 steps? Wait, I’m not trying to recover from anything except this perpetual hangover. Bleh. I don’t feel depressed, just extremely stressed out and anxious and it sucks. I need a break…alone…or with some highly intoxicated friends and a karaoke mic! Who’s coming with me and, well, where are we going?

What Part of NO Don't You FRIGGIN' Understand?!

"How come all you ever say is NO!?"
"Momma, can we play the Wii?" "NO!"
"Momma, can we go to Water Country tomorrow?" "NO!"
"Momma, can we go out to eat?" "NO!"
"Momma, can I get on the computer for an hour?" "NO!"
"Momma, can you make us dinner?" "NO!"

Well, I guess I should have said "yes" to that last one since I said "no" to lunch. I'm kidding! This is one of the reasons why I changed the title of my blog to "The NO! Mom's Blog" because my son so seriously asked me why I always said no. I tried to keep track one day of how many times I said it and lost count after 52...yes, I say "no" a whole heck of a lot!

I also curse a lot. A WHOLE lot. I spent 7 years in the US Navy serving with mostly men who, at one glorious time, bowed to me whenever I said the word "pussy" or "mother f*&ker" just because they never heard a female say curse words! But I noticed lately, with my increase in frustration, my increase in the frequency of my usage of not only the "normal" curse words but also my favorite word F*CK! I have replaced most of my curse words with...creative words. So, for now, I am on a curse word diet. Let's see how long this shit crap lasts! OY!

I have so much more to blog about, but it seems to be stuck in my head right now. Not sure why, but I think I will go take a head laxative and see if that helps. Now that I am down a kid, maybe that will free up some brain cells and allow me type away. For now, this is all you get. WOO HOO! Now someone get me a beer...

Have You Ever?

Have you ever wanted to hide away for days, or better yet, months at a time because your life seems to be just so...ahhh? Have you ever wanted to pull out your hair, one strand at a time because it would feel better than the emotions that are pounding pulverizing your skull and making your head spin out of control? Have you ever wanted get into the dryer with the wet clothes, turn it on high and just tumble because the pain of tumble dry would feel alot better than the screeching sound in your ears when the kids wake you up at 7 o'clock in the morning?

The past couple of weeks have been trying to say the least. The kids have been out of school and pretty much my attention 24/7. And the whining...oh the insatiable whining!...I thought that shit stopped! Hell no it doesn't! Maybe it is PMS or old age or insanity creeping up on me. Or maybe it is just the fact that my mother was right and my children are completely and utterly fucking SPOILED! I thought I could handle them, but when I go out of my way to do all these nice things for them and don't even get a "blow me" "thank you", yeah, I give up! I had to PULL OVER ON THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY to stop a fight between my 9 and 7 year old girls tonight. We weren't even gone from the park for 1/2 a minute and they were arguing over...get this shit...CUP HOLDERS!!! For real? A cup holder? You are going to make me almost wreck my car by arguing over a mother effing cup holder???? Oy.

So Diapers and Wine, I wasn't kidding when I said it doesn't get easier because they get bigger, they talk back, they cry louder and they learn how to say "I HATE you!" and "I wish you weren't my mom!" Boo to the big kids today. I wish I could go on strike. I wish I could take my bottle of rum, a bag of ice and a 2 liter of coke and hide in my room for a couple of hours until I can't feel my head anymore.

Have you ever wanted to just roll one and disappear for a few? LMFAO!

TTFN, Happy 4th
