Reason #176 Why I Love My Daughter

Well, we all know she rocks. She truly does.

Tuesday morning, when I was getting ready for work and she was sitting on the couch waiting for our neighbors to pull down to the end of the driveway (indicating it's time for the bus), we were watching part of the Today show.

They were talking about Sarah Palin's new book that was coming out and made a mention that it was 400 pages long.

I said, "What on earth could she have to say that would cause a book to be 400 pages long?" and my incredibly clever daughter replied,

"The book must be large print."


Speaking of my incredibly clever, talented and simply gorgeous daughter, she has a new post up at her blog.

It's poetry. Please be gentle to my budding poet.

It's Tuesday.

You know what that means.


So.......cow weighing watch commences. No cow weighing today.


You know what, I just realized you have absolutely NO CLUE what that means.

I failed to tell you what my new job is.

I now work for an Extension service for a big university here in my lovely state. I'm the office associate.

I basically answer phones, schedule rentals for the building, type up stuff, e-mail stuff, mail stuff, clean stuff, help people with stuff.

BUT.......what I'm highly anticipating.....and what they PROMISED me I could help with......which now that I think about it, most people might not want to I get to help weigh COWS! And other livestock!

Weighing cows. It doesn't get any cooler than that.

Ain't life grand?


I had a strange dream last night.

It involved this guy:

and my best friend from high school. Somehow, I ended up with this guy but Jenny either had been involved with him and still liked him or just like him. It was a weird love triangle and I woke up feeling so guilty. We were never really interested in the same guys in high school. I stuck to dumb jocks and she stuck to smart actors. It was just a weird feeling I woke up with. I'm sure there's a deeper meaning, but I really don't care to explore what it might be.


Sigh.......I wanna weigh some cows.


Know what's happening here at work this morning? The 4-H club is making sweet potato log rolls. If you've never had one of these, let me tell you something. They are heaven all wrapped up in plastic.

I mean, the office is smelling soooooooooooooooooooo delicious right now. I just ate breakfast and am really not hungry, but the smell is making me hungry.

I just better not gain back any of that weight I lost earlier this year.

Dear So and So

Dear Me,

You can tell how much you've adapted to living in the country when you find yourself showering with a dog skull in the tub with you and you don't even bat an eye.

Scratching Head in Wonderment,



Dear Current Job,

Today is my last day with you. You've been........interesting to say the least. I'll miss all of the weird and wacky conversations my co-workers have had that they don't know I've been privy to since I've always got my earbuds in. Yeah, I don't keep the volume up THAT high on my iPod. I've heard EVERYTHING!!!! Mwah, hah, hah, hah, hah!!!!!




Dear New Job,

Thank you for being 15 minutes away from my house instead of the 2 hour round trip drive I do every day with my soon to be former job.

Thank you for giving me 2 weeks off at Christmas...WITH pay. general.

I hope we'll get along!

See you Monday at 8 a.m.,



Dear Sonic Breakfast Burrito,

Next time you want to buy me a breakfast burrito from Sonic to take to work the next morning, I'll just take a junior one. The regular ones are too big (that's what she said!).

Thanks mommy!




Dear Last Day of Work,

Please don't be one of those LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG days.

Randomness Abounds

It's Tuesday and you know what that means!!!!!!!!


Click to read and enjoy. And maybe even join in.


Here's Light's jack-o-lantern.

I've been letting her design it for the past 5 years. Whatever she draws, I cut.

She's got such an imagination.

I simply adore the mouth. It was a bitch to cut, but it turned out great.

And I'm such a lazy mom...we didn't do the pumpkin until Saturday. The day of Halloween.

Sigh.....she'll forgive me one day.



I got an e-mail from a friend today. It's one that's been passed around before, but I died laughing at one of the "facts".

"If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb."

Dude, I've passed enough gas in my life to wipe Poughkeepsie off the map!


I woke up this morning to the sound of a cat vomiting.

Happy Tuesday!


When I went to go take my shower this morning, I found a Barbie pool party going on.

I also found Barbie sized underware just randomly tossed around the tub.

Those Barbies are sluts.


I gave the dogs a bath last night.

In the tub in my house.

Max is only like 25 lbs, so that wasn't too bad.

Nikki is over 50 lbs.

I'll let you use your imagination on that one.

It wasn't pretty.

But at least they don't smell like ass anymore.


I'll now leave you with one of my favorite songs from the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack.

Reason # 342 Why I Love My Child

When asked by an elderly lady if she was a bee, she replied...

...."No ma'am, I'm a MONARCH butterfly."

Halloween costume, 2009

Ever seen a butterfly....excuse me, a MONARCH butterfly....with attitude?

How was your Halloween?
