Fade To Black

It's high time this crazy assed house got a new computer monitor. I'm in the middle of reading the news, poof, I'm blind. I see nothing but black. I go to blog so's I don't forget to do it before work and poof, my eyes must be closed because I got nothing.

I've been talking to the Captain about getting an LCD monitor. The monitor we have now came from my dad and I'm fairly certain he got it somewhere in the late 90's. It's huge, it takes up more space than my daughter. I need, no, I want a new monitor.

So I've been talking it up to the man. I have several points that I think make sense but let's face it: just because it makes sense to me doesn't mean it does to everyone else. It usually doesn't but I digress.

I have this old computer desk that I've had for 7 years maybe. It's survived 4 moves and it seems to be related to the Weeble family. There's also a glass topped long table next to the rickety desk that has my paperwork, books and other crap, er stuff, on it. It's not meant to have that kind of weight on it. I lighten it up all the time but good lord almighty, this shit comes outta no where and multiplies.

My genius plan (that's so subjective yes?) is to get a flat screen monitor, then get a narrow desk that would never hold the ancient monitor, get a 2 drawer filing cabinet and voila! Clean table that I won't break and my desk area looks clean. I can actually find paperwork in a traditional filing format instead of mine. Mine is "Don't touch those piles! I know exactly where that is! I DO!"

So, what should I, um I mean we, get? Any ideas? Suggestions? I need help people. I've told you that time and time again. This time, you can actually help me as opposed to those other times where you need a pharmaceutical license to help.

Thanks 4 readers of mine!

We got our new desk from office depot or was it office max, ugh, I have preggo brain. I know were its locatd so I can go with you if you want. Ours is pretty large and it was $85 or so, granted it was a major biatch to put together, in the end it was worth it, it is very nice. I am sure you could find something there! As far as to Kota he would know better than I :)

i dont really have any advice on the desk... other than i'm pretty sure target has some good shiat... and i know you know that also! ;)

my question is... will you REALLY use the files and keep the table clean?! i'ma go with NO. cause i just cleaned my room and it took me like 2 weeks... yet in a day i am back to my old "way of storing and sorting". its just easier to be messy.

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…
