Reality Really Blows Sometimes

So I'm watching Celebrity Fit Club this morning on VH1 and hear a name that sounds familiar but I can't place it nor the face that it belonged to. I didn't get a good look at the guy but soon enough, I did and




It was Jani Lane from the 80's pop metal band Warrant. Only it SO didn't look like Jani Lane from Warrant. I know people change and I know that he had thinning hair. I accept that but people....I had a crush on this man for years. YEARS! I even "dated" a boy who looked like him. (Don't know that I would call it dating but that's another story).

Ok so this is Jani from back in the day. Pretty yummy looking. I can see why I thought he was hot. I still kind of like the long hair, the sassy look on his face..
Some people find it hard to believe that I used to like guys like this because my husband looks nothing like this. I like to think that I've grown and matured some but really it's just that my husband is one hot mofo. It's true. Now the one below is clearly him now.
That's not the "best" one that I could find (and by best I mean one that really truly shows him all out IF you know what I mean).I am hoping that VH1 will put a photo of him at weigh in on the site so that you can all see what I mean. I'm sure he's a nice guy, don't get me wrong. He's going through a divorce and all that crap so I'm sure life is rough right now. I am just in complete awe and shock at how he looks now. I don't know, maybe I'm just proving how much of a weirdo I am by my reaction to this. I just love the 80's so much and I really hate for some things to change. Including the hot guys that if they looked that way now they would get their asses kicked. That's just me.

I just walked by the mirror in the bathroom, saw my belly and actually said, "Yes, but I birthed 2 children, thank you very much."

Please do not ask me to email photos out, I get entirely too many requests for them. These are the ones that I have at home, thanks to a couple of sources.

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

When was the first time that you realized that your home was not like other people’s homes? 

My house has always been different from other houses. I don't think I could narrow it down to a particular time. I recall not having friends stay over. Ever. I always stayed at all my friends' houses and called their moms "Mom".

Not a lot of my friends were only children so to them, I was the odd duck. Believe me, I *was* the odd duck. Just for a myriad of other reasons.

Having a family of my own, I really see the differences in houses. We are more relaxed with some things that would not fly in other houses. It gets loud in our house. Extremely loud. If I stopped them from being loud all the time, I wouldn't get a single thing done. I tend to jump in right away when the kids are arguing because it can, and will, quickly snowball into WWIII and someone (or both) will be crying. We let our son play the Wii, computer or DS for far longer than other parents or even the "…

This Has To Be Said

I haven't blogged in 8 months. We bought a house, still unpacking, school started. You know, life. I felt the need, the urgent need to blog about the Adrian Peterson situation today. I am full of all sorts of feelings and had to write about it. I would love to hear your thoughts on this whole thing. No really, I would. I don't feel I was a douchebag in my writing so all I ask is you not be a douchebag in your response. Thanks.

My thoughts on the Adrian Peterson situation (but first, some backstory):
I was spanked as a child. I'm pretty sure most of us that grew up in the 80s were.Until the summer between 5th and 6th grade I lived in Charelston, SC and from 6th to 11th grade, North Chicaco, IL. I have seen every form of discipline doled out on a child. I've seen spankings, beatings, hairbrushes smacked into heads, spoons hitting the tops of heads, whips, belts and even switches. I've seen it all.Most of you know that my son is named after a little boy who died from c…
