And Yet, I Am Always Shocked

Do you ever find yourself asleep at the computer? I knew it!!! I knew I wasn't the only one! I also knew I could fall asleep pretty much anywhere but I had no idea how far reaching those capabilities were until the last couple years.

(That may not be an entirely accurate statement since about ten years or so ago, I fell asleep in the middle of a rock band showcase concert including none other than Nickleback. Of course this is pre "let's sing pretty much the same song over and over and not cut our hair, ooh and let's fool radio stations into playing this crap we call music ad nauseum" Nickleback. I am assuming they were good? Maybe. Couldn't tell ya, I was asleep. In my defense, my mother's dog, her second child*, had passed away the day before and I was at my parents' place being there for my mother and therefore, was pooped. ANYWAY! Fell asleep, concert.)

I cannot even begin to tally the times I've woken up at the computer desk, sitting upright, drool on my chin. Just joking.

No I'm not.

I would be ok with this falling asleep sitting up thing except? The impulsive snapping the head up part. I could probably recover from the sore neck if I would just not break it when I wake up. Amazingly, this going nocturnal at the desk does not wreck my back. Of course, this is coming from a person who has been known to sleep on her stomach in a recliner. Just think about that one. Ready? K.

I've got a dilemma that really isn't a dilemma. I just like that word at the moment. Look at it. Dilemma. Looks pretty. Reminds me of Brian DePalma (loved Scarface but dude? Bonfire? C'mon, that was crap and you made it cause you were bored right?). I just aged myself. Geek alert!!!!!!



I have approximately 9 1/2 loads of laundry on my bed. No worries, it's all clean. It's all UNfolded. Yep. I took it out of the dryer and threw it on the bed, moved on to the next load, lather, rinse, repeat. So? Do I take the time to fold all of said clean (thank god it's clean) laundry? Or? Do I curl up my chair** and fall asleep Facebooking or Farming? Hmph, either way, that damn laundry ain't gonna fold itself.


*if the dog could speak? she would have given it anything it wanted before me. the one she actually birthed.
**the chair in question is this style but more of a country plaid pattern (just close your eyes and picture it already!!) I can (and have several times) curled up with my butt sticking out and slept to my heart's content (or until one of the heathens wakes me up which is usually the case. Dammit!).
You can see the dilemma right? Thought so.

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…
