This Week, So Far

I've gone back to work (and I'm diggin' it, for now)

The Littlest Little has started the medication that is from the study she was one day too old to participate in (balderdash! to the one day too old crap!)

The Dictator Girl probably has another UTI (that would be two in a three week period on top of a yeast infection AND a micro viral infection thingy-ma-bob)

The boy hasn't gotten up before 9am at all since school got out. Check that, one day he was up at 7am and I only know this because his sister was screaming at him to stop looking at her.

My lower back has been hurting so much that I'm reminded of my gramma Lulu who would hunch over for awhile every time she got up from the couch or chair. At least I'm not tooting every time I get up like Grams.

Some interesting reads (can you tell I like TV Squad? I didn't think so):

Oh we've already had the discussion about these products. Today was all about fallopian tubes and a woman's menstrual cycle. With my 6 yr old boy. Pardon me whilst I go cry.

Don't show my husband this, please.

Even though we have Showtime, I never watch any of the shows that are on there. And believe me, I want to. I just don't have the time (nor the TiVo) and when I do have time, it doesn't work because the TV is in the main room and I'm not going to watch Dexter*, The Tudors and Nurse Jackie in front of the children or my mother in law. (and I think people need to get over this. it's a show. - sheesh)

Here's to the rest of the week being somewhat entertaining.

Oh yeah, the troublemaker that is Mandyland moved back home this week from California. Bout damn time woman (gah! I wanted to type bitch and not woman but I don't know, it felt weird. Well shit, now it's even weirder cause I typed that. Tartar sauce!)

Welcome home. Bitch.

*and I can't be the only one who thinks that Michael Hall is hot in this show. I don't mean his character (duh) but HE looks damn good. I love Six Feet Under and he was awesome there but he never really did it for me ya know? But the promo shots for this show and pretty much any photo of him recently? Rawr!!!

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…
