The same issue again

My mom/parents. I've gotten so much better, but darn it still hurts. I talked to her after not calling her for about 3 weeks, proceeded to tell her about the new puppy and all she can tell me about is that her cat has one milky eye, and that they already have taken her to 3 vets to get the best special treatment. Hmmm, you are the same person that didn't even call me last year when I was in the hospital? Eventhough you were at my home watching my kids. Ok, so I got it that I rank lower on the priority list than the cat.

I also don't remember a birthday present. And my christmas present was a stupid movie that SHE would have liked. Issues, issues, issues....and you wonder why I don't call?

Tueday Ten: Random Thoughts In My Head Today

1. Taxes. We are doing our taxes today and I'm waiting anxiously to hear about it. We need some money back.

2. Work: One of my co-workers is leaving to work for the CIA in Virginia as a legal secretary. How cool is that?

3. We have a wedding to go to on Saturday and I have no clue about a gift.

4. My mother called Paul yesterday and she asked him what was wrong. ARGHHH....! She actually suggested that she might see a psychiatrist. Yeah right, when hell freezes over.

5. Paul has a job application going that I really hope will work out. It would be so much better for him.

6. I need to stop at Target and finish getting stuff for the kids for Valentine's to give out at school.

7. We are getting another puppy in a few weeks, I can't wait. And it's a Pitbull puppy. He is 4 weeks old right now. And yes, I know how many people feel about Pitbulls, but I don't agree and neither does Paul. And he knows a little about dogs. LOL. When raised in the right environment they are great family dogs.

8. I really don't want my parents to come again this year. Now I just need to find a way to tell them that.

9. I'm hot, I wish it was raining again, but's sunny and mild.

10. I need to find out when Sidney's next football game is tonite, I hope it's not this Saturday.

odds and ends

I really don't know who to vote for this year and it's bugging me. I'm a registered republican but don't really like an of the candidates. After hearing Obama on illegal immigrants, I can't vote for him either living here in southern California since it's a huge problem here. And I simply cannot stand Hillary. So there........I'm stuck.

I finished the new Stephen King book "Duma Key" and have to say I actually liked it. It's been a hit and miss with his books lately, some I didn't like at all, but this one was good.

We are still dealing with homework problems with Brenna, she just has better things to do than actually do her homework. Oh god give me patience....RIGHT NOW!!!!

The aftermath

after my birthday that is. This had to be one of the shittiest birthdays in history. I actually left Friday early to go to a Dr.'s appt., which of coures ran late. Then I was on my way to Barnes & Nobles to spent my birthday gift certificate when I got into an accident. It's just my bumper and right light, but god what an inconvenience. Fine, went and got my books and went home.

Next day (my actual birthday) I'm cooking dinner when a pipe burst under the kitchen sink. It was 7:30 pm, of course we had to call a plummer and it took til almost 9 to get it fixed, and $200. Whatever......

The Sunday was somewhat better since we went to a really nice champagne brunch, crab legs, mussels, salmon, primerib....the works......ahhhhhhhh....much better.

Now back to " I really need to lose weight since my fat clothes are getting tight".

Random thoughts

Ok, it's time, I've had it with my weight. Once again....

I'm uncomfortable and even my fat clothes are getting tight. I've known for quite a while, but was in denial. LOL. Food just tastes too good, especially all the bad stuff. So now I'm back again to cutting out carbs and basically just eating meat, eggs, veggies and salad. AND I really need to start some stomach exercises. My 41 birthday is coming up on Saturday and let's just face it, 3 kids later my stomach is definately visible.LOLOL. The c-sections certainly didn't help either. I need to dig out my Pilates tapes that actually target the stomach.

What else? Sidney started her music lessons at school, so every Thursday we are dealing with this:

It's bigger than she is, and luckily I have a big car to haul this around in. It's quite interesting. The other day she was practicing and of course hubby had to try it. OMG...the noise these two could produce on this thing. It's painful. LOLOL.
