Itsa rerun

Itsa rerun: "

imageThis is my son. He hates my chicken and potatoes. Hates them! Every time I make it – which is fairly often since it’s so cheap – he rolls his eyes and groans. Frankly, he’d rather starve.

Have I mentioned he’s a picky eater?

He’s found a new love lately though. We treated ourselves to some pizza the other day and picked up a little cheese pizza for the kids. The baby girl won’t eat it because “it has sauce on it.” *eyeroll*

But the man-child? He ate the whole doggone thing. By himself. He absolutely devoured that pizza – minus crusts but I’ll cut him some slack. I can’t tell you how great it felt to see him have a real boy appetite about something besides Doritos. My boy ate a whole pizza. By himself. And I think that’s awesome.

I know I’ll feel differently though when he’s a teenager and eats us out of house and home. In the meantime though, it’s nice to see him not turn his nose up at something. :)

Tuesday Tootsies

Tuesday Tootsies: "

Well, I looked and looked but couldn’t really find anything for Easter, other than the cute little baby shoes below. So, I guess we’ll go with another theme for today’s tootsies. :)


Here’s what “Spring shoes” got me. *eyeroll* I guess that’s Google’s way of saying, “What? You asked a stupid question, you gots a stupid answer!”



Okay, the little girls might like these.


But these are certainly for the more grown-up ladies. I kind of like the fresh flowers. These would be cool for a wedding, or for the bridesmaids. You could coordinate them with the flowers the bride is carrying, or with the wedding colors.


Okay – if you want the goddess of fertility on your shoes, you could always go with these I suppose. See the little goddess on the heel? Good thing there’s no such thing as a goddess of fertility because she might get mad at being walked on!


Me, I’m partial to fringe. Seriously. I have 2 fringe jackets in my closet.


And I’ve been feeling some particular Texas love lately too. This one has sort of a combination cowboy boot/high heel feel to me.


So there you have it. A little bit of something for everyone. :) Have an awesome day and don’t forget to pamper those tootsies!

Don’t tell me

Don’t tell me: "

imageSee, I’m real good at giving out advice, but terrible at taking it. ;)

I love this picture – not just for the sentiment, but because the kitteh looks much like one of the kittehs I used to have. Plus, I used to have a smiley face pillow just like that one, when I was little. :)

It’s the last Monday in March. Do you know what this means? Before the week is out there will be different colors on my blog! Woohoo!

Actually, it means that April is coming, which means Easter. Which is one of my favorite holidays. :)

The weekend was … well … it was a weekend. Nothing much more to be said there! We picked up an old couch and Darc has been vacuuming and Febreezing the heck out of it. Which means the MiniNess has been hiding a lot, because at almost 5 years old, she’s still afraid of the vacuum. *eyeroll* If she thinks I’m going to come over and vacuum her house when she’s a grown-up, she’s got another think coming!

So, YOU go have a nice day, I’M going to go look at pictures of shoes, ‘net connection permitting. ;)

The goggles do nothing

Kind of a personal joke between me and Darc, and the Simpson’s Wolfcastle/McBain character. :D

Luck or power?

Luck or power?: "

Hahahahaha, yeah, I have a good deal of power. Sure thing Sparky, just plug me in a watch me go! LOLOL

You Are Balanced – Realist – Empowered
You feel your life is controlled both externally and internally.
You have a good sense of what you can control and what you should let go.
Depending on the situation, you sometimes try to exert more control.
Other times, you accept things for what they are and go with the flow.

You are a realist when it comes to luck.
You don’t attribute everything to luck, but you do know some things are random.
You don’t beat yourself up when bad things happen to you…
But you do your best to try to make your own luck.

You have a good deal of power, but you also know the pecking order.
You realize that working the system does get you further.
You know who to defer to and who to control.
When it comes to the game of life, you play things flawlessly.

Friday Funnies

Friday Funnies: "

Got this in an email and though it too cute not to pass along. (Thanks Elizabeth!) Only, I’m not so sure the 30 year old “youngins” will understand a lot of it. ;) Seems to me this would be for the 40+ crowd. I know for a fact that stamps were 13¢ in 1978!

If you are 30, or older, you might think this is hilarious!

When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning…. Uphill… Barefoot… BOTH ways… yadda, yadda, yadda

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on my kids about how hard I had it and how easy they’ve got it!

But now that I’m over the ripe old age of thirty, I can’t help but look around and notice the youth of today. You’ve got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a damn Utopia!

And I hate to say it, but you kids today, you don’t know how good you’ve got it!

I mean, when I was a kid we didn’t have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!!

There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter – with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox, and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10 cents!

Child Protective Services didn’t care if our parents beat us. As a matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our ass! Nowhere was safe!

There were no MP3’s or Napsters or iTunes! If you wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself!

Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio, and the DJ would usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up! There were no CD players! We had tape decks in our car.. We’d play our favorite tape and "eject" it when finished, and then the tape would come undone rendering it useless. Cause, hey, that’s how we rolled, Baby! Dig?

We didn’t have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called, they got a busy signal, that’s it!

There weren’t any freakin’ cell phones either. If you left the house, you just didn’t make a damn call or receive one. You actually had to be out of touch with your "friends". OH MY GOD !!! Think of the horror… not being in touch with someone 24/7!!! And then there’s TEXTING. Yeah, right. Please! You kids have no idea how annoying you are.

And we didn’t have fancy Caller ID either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your parents, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, the collection agent… you just didn’t know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!

We didn’t have any fancy PlayStation or Xbox video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600! With games like ‘Space Invaders’ and ‘Asteroids’. Your screen guy was a little square! You actually had to use your imagination!!! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen… Forever! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE!

You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on! You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your ass and walk over to the TV to change the channel!!! NO REMOTES!!! Oh, no, what’s the world coming to?!?!

There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I’m saying? We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little rat-finks!
And we didn’t have microwaves. If we wanted to heat something up, we had to use the stove! Imagine that!

And our parents told us to stay outside and play… all day long. Oh, no, no electronics to soothe and comfort. And if you came back inside… you were doing chores!

And car seats – oh, please! Mom threw you in the back seat and you hung on. If you were lucky, you got the "safety arm" across the chest at the last moment if she had to stop suddenly, and if your head hit the dashboard, well that was your fault for calling "shot gun" in the first place!

See! That’s exactly what I’m talking about! You kids today have got it too easy. You’re spoiled rotten! You guys wouldn’t have lasted five minutes back in 1980 or any time before!

The Over 30 Crowd
(Send this to someone you’d like to make smile)

Have a great day and an awesome weekend! :D
