What exactly defines a lady?

It has come to my attention (again) that I am not very "ladylike." I hate crossing my legs, i love to sweat and getting dirty is only the half, hehe. However, if I ever want to get a date again, I think I have to at least pretend.

So I have come up with my lady list, the 5 things all ladies must be able to do.

5. Batt Eyelashes.
Well you can't break a sweat, so you have to use all your cuteness to get things done.

4. Walk with flare.
Again, since the last thing you would want is to do anything for yourself, shake it like its hot baby.

3. Giggle often.
Ladies don't beer belly laugh, they giggle, hehe.

2. Shave your arm pits, everyday not just for sex, holidays or summer.
This one actually does require work. If you think you will break a sweat, repeat steps 5 and 4 till someone offers to do it for you.

1. Fart without making a sound. Oh Im sorry, did I say fart? I meant POOF.
A lady must be able to clear a room without leaving a mark, oops i mean making a sound.

Four day work

Happy Thanksgiving to all I didn't get to visit yesterday!!!

It was a wonderful thanksgiving here. I went to my sister's, ate and played like a fiend. It was great. In addition to my family, she invited one of her friend's friends, her boyfriend's best friend, and another friend of hers. There was 13 of in all, a perfect number in fact. Her friend's friend was Fredo, he is from Puerto Rico. He rocked. He lead the table in a round of prayers, it was really cool. My family is Catholic, so we usually say the same boring thing lol. It was a very welcome change. My sister's friends are so diverse I love going to visit. It like a mini adventure and the kids really enjoy it.

So now the fun is over and its solid work time for me. The kids are gone for the weekend and I have to paint my whole house, yikes. I am selling it and they are going to start showing it monday. Oh man its a lot of work. I have some people coming over to help, but man I have to stay motivated. I am not lazy, but I am a perfectionist so it takes me forever. Ok done with playtime, have a good weekend all, I'll see you monday!! :)

Here it is, the Holiday Mantra:


Ok I'm tagged so here it is

Contagion slapped me upside the head with this meme after meeting me this weekend. Should I be offended?

1. Do you use an alarm clock to wake up in the morning?

yes, it plays Tori unless I forget to put her in then it goes BEEEEP... BEEEPPP, and I smack it.

2. What time do you set it for?

I have no clue. I havent switched the time back on it, so its an hour ahead. I think its set for 6:45 which is really 5:45 but actually since it is about 23 minutes fast that would be... ummm... 5:22 a.m.

3. Do you hit the snooze button? If so how many times?

I smack the crap out of my alarm clock. About 6 times i think. Not quite sure.

4. Have you ever abused an alarm clock?

I try to be nice to my alarm clock cause its kinda cool. But my previous alarm clocks would eventually stop going off for some reason. I think they were scared of me. They knew the rath of the tired zephyr.

5. It’s time to spread some “It’s Blogcess” linky love.
This isn't a question. Does it actually count?

So there it is, I guess my right big toe is gonna fall off cause I'm not tagging anyone else, lol.

Froggy Gets Better

My baby is going to get more help. YEAH!! His new doctor is going to network to find a child phychologist closer to my house. It took me two hours to get him to the doctor tonight, but every second of the drive was worth it. I finally feel like we are in a clinic that knows how to treat him. Dr. M thinks my froggy has, in addition to the Asperger's, a mood disorder. He is not sure the type of mood disorder, but he thinks thats why it has been so difficult to treat him.

So its good news. Mommy can relax for a bit.

There is a light inside me that noone can put out.

The love in these walls
will never be matched
Cracks in the floors
never to be patched

Backyard so free
will no longer be home to
Pinics and basketball
bike rides, chalk drawings
Training wheels
lost teeth, puppy tails
swingsets and skinned knees

Crayon colored walls
koolaid stained counters
Goodbye my home

We have enough Youth, how bout a fountain of Smart?

I wish I knew what happened to my finese. I had it once, in fact, I was FULL of it, lol. Seriously, my tolerence level for stupidity has evaporated. I used to be tolerant and patient, now I'm bitchy and pushy. The funny part is I think I like the latter. I get more accomplished. Alas, when you have to deal with stupidity on a daily basis, you must finese. How do I get it back?

I've thought of some role playing exercises... (I am person A)

Person B: After some "thought", I have decided that it would be more efficient to drive backwards everywhere. If you drive backwards the odometer will count down and your gas gage will go up.

Person A: (Breathes deeply) I really like your ingenuity. You broke that box right down haven't you. We will try that and see how it goes.

What do you think? Am I on the right path?


Sorry this one is a day late but here you go:)....

When your boss gives you a rought time ....

Dude, I could totally stuff him in a locker right now!

Trust me it will make you chuckle inside thinking of his flailing limbs.
And as you lock the door his little screams no one can hear. Oh my its gonna be a fun day for me, lol.

Top Five Things Every Weekend Should Contain

5. Weekend outfit. --- Thats right, I said it. The sweats and tshirt you plop on while you sit and do laundry on Saturday are the same ones you wear on Sunday to watch football in and eat mint chocolate chip ice cream. Now if you live with someone you may have to alter the outfit and at least find a fresh tshirt, but really why make more laundry for yourself when you just cleaned everything the day before, lol.

4. Naps -- Weekends are the opportunity to throw your daily schedule right out the window. Noone to tell you what to do, kick up on that recliner and take a great rest.

3. Movie. -- For me movies are one of the cheapest forms of escapism. If you happen across a good one, for a few hours you are in another place completely. Big Fish and Finding Neverland are two examples of movies that just carry you off.

2. Captain and Coke.-- Mixed with a little music, a packed bar or bowling alley, good friends, new friends, and a pink balloon makes for very interesting stories to get you through the upcoming week.


1. Peeing in the men's bathroom at a bar, having someone bang on the door to get in, opening the door and seeing the guy's face as you saunter out with a big smile only to hear the words "its ok you're HOT!" -- When it comes down to it, all women want to hear (at least once a weekend) is "your smoking baby." For most, number 1 must be accompanied by number 2.

Get Out

Pushing and pulling
I run through the night
Hoping to find
Something to grab onto

I struggle, search
blindfolded, scratching
I feel my stomach burning
ripping at the blindfold

I want to keep running
the car has no gas
the lights are all off
stars stopped shining
the moon hides and waits
for time to pass by
the moment arrives
for me to be me


The last straw was pulled from my thinly woven hat today.

I had a pretty interesting day to say the least. But I think the experience that sums it up best is as follows:

Since I have worked at my job I have been alotted two 15 min breaks. When I started the guys in the machine shop had a card game every break. It took me months to get the opputunity to play cards with them. One day they were short a player and they asked me to join. I was overjoyed to be included in their ritual. We have been playing together for months. Taunting, bragging, laughing and just taking a good old fashioned break from our daily routines. It was my slice of peace at work. Today it ended. My boss has taken it away from me. I reminded him that it was the ONLY perk I got from this company. It did not matter. Its over.

For those that know me, I'm sure you understand what a blow this is to me. You know how long it took for me to be accepted by the "guys." I really have nothing else to say about my work now, it is dead to me. There is no more they can take from me now and I am going to leave. I am just very sad it had to work out this way. I would have helped them grow and construct great customer relations. They will never appreciate my time and effort. So it's time to find a company that will come a little closer to my goals and expectations. It may seem that I am a bit opptimistic about businesses and their relationships with employees. In reality I have no choice, the only thing that keeps me going right now is knowing there is a company out there that will allow me to grow with them and help to make the company stronger. I worked for such a company once and had to leave or relocate. Relocation is not a real option for a single mother of three. But I had it once, a company that recognized my potential and fed it willingly. I know its out there and I will find it again. I just want the oppurtunity to work my butt off, make a difference and be respected all at the same time. I will never again waste a moment of my time working anywhere different.

Nut Job

I couldn't make this up if I tried!!!

I am going to get a NUT JOB tomorrow at work!! LMFAO Now I know what your thinking...she doesn't have the right equipment for a nut job, does she?
Apparently White Bread, i mean bossman, thinks I do. He voluteered me to head up the nut gifts for our customers. I am suprised he didn't ask me to bake cookies on top of it. I am not a raging feminist at all, but seriously folks, I work as a process engineer and estimator. I am not sure where nuts come into play.

BALLS, maybe, but no nuts!!
