I'm Sorry, That's Incorrect. It Was Not In The Form Of A Question.

From Les -

1: Which "era" was you? I hit the teen screams in the 80's, (oooh - the painted on denim, sparkly headbands on the forehead, tuxedo shirts and, yes, the Great BIG HAIR!!!) and I'm thinking it was you talked about your "embarassing heart-throb music", no...?

I graduated in 91 but I'll always feel like an 80's kid. I had the tidal wave bangs, stirrup pants, Cabbage Patch Kids, LA Style Hairspray (I'm fairly certain my crowd of friends {of the male and female persuasion} contributed significantly to the ozone hole), Headbanger's Ball (with sucky Adam Curry who by the way apparantly created some Podcast program. So some VJs DO have a life after MTV. Who'da thunk it?), mad crush on Jani Lane and oh hell, I'll admit, all of the hairband "metal" groups. I was also into cruising the mall and actually buying something, watching DeGrasssi Jr. High but the old school version. Oh and 21 Jumpstreet? I had posters of Johnny Depp and Kirk Cameron on my wall. Oh those Growing Pains. I could go on for hours. I'll delve more into my 80's another time if anyone cares.

2: When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I have always wanted to be a mom. I didn't go to college because I couldn't afford it, didn't want to owe the government money for 30 years and frankly, I knew I was going to be a SAHM and why waste the money going to school, getting a degree and not using it for 18-20 years? Yeah. I'll go to school when they are in school and we'll see what happens.

3: Do you feel "grown up", yet?

Sometimes I feel like an old soul or like I need a morning and afternoon nap (ala my Gramma Lulu) but for the most part, I still feel like a kid. My kids have a huge part of that on their shoulders. It's all their fault and that's ok.

From GrayMama -

Paper or plastic?

It's a complicated question with many factors and scenerios:

Is there ice cream, yogurt or milk involved?
Are there children involved?
Do you have to climb stairs?
Do you need an extra 4 sets of hands thanks to kids?

I tell ya, it's not so easy.

I go with paper bags, with the handles if possible cause those rock. No handles, then paper IN the plastic so I can carry 10 up at a time while corralling Monkey Boy up the steps in front of me. If it's late at night and I can't fill a whole paper bag, I'll go with plastic. ALWAYS seperate the beef from the chicken. Always.

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 "…


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.

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…
