As I Promised....My New Glasses

I picked up my new glasses today. I really don't wear them too much but I usually do if I am at home and don't go anywhere that day or at night. I don't need glasses to read. I actually take them off if I am reading. So here goes. Pics! Be gentle. Ha!

They look dark but they are actually a pinkish/purple color. It's labeled as *wine*. I like that.

Sunday, March 29, 2009 Blogs and Entrecard

For those on Entrecard we know that blogs are having to remove the widget. Well I happen to read quite a few of these blogs and don't want to lose track of them so I am offering a link on my blogroll if you'll leave it here. Even if you don't use and you want to be added to my blogroll please leave your link. I just ask that you add my link to yours as well. Why not spread the linky love? haha I do often refer to my blogroll for latest posts. I'll feel much better knowing I won't lose track of any of those blogs that I have enjoyed reading.

On a completely different note I went and saw another movie today. It was Monsters Vs. Aliens. I don't know what I really expected. I think I expected MORE monster. Shoot, more aliens even. I don't want to post spoilers. It was a good movie overall but just not quite exactly what I thought it would be. The kids seemed to enjoy it a lot and that is what counts.

Entrecard Running Slow?

For all my fellow Entrecard droppers I would like to ask if it's running slow for you too? I have not been able to finish many drops today. I want to get to them all but it's taking the widgets awhile to show up, they don't show up at all or they only partially show up. So I have been working at it off and on all day and have finished 119 on just one blog. I want all my droppers to know that I'll get to you as fast as I can as long as Entrecard works with me.

*edited to say it seems to be working now. I think it may have been a bad internet connection on my part. We'll see how it goes!!

The Olive Garden, a Movie and More on the Neighbor Boy

Yesterday my stress level had reached a boiling point. Honestly there are plenty of reasons to get away. I gave my sister a call but unfortunately she had to work tomorrow so she was out. My other close friend has a little boy who just had surgery so that was out. Everyone was busy!! So, I did the next best thing. I grabbed my oldest daughter....the one who has been stressing me out....and took her out to dinner and a movie. I think it was good for us. I treated her like one of my friends and I told her for the night that is what she was. We had a great time. She loved being treated like an adult at the Olive Garden. I love pasta so that place is really perfect for me. I had a delicious drink with strawberries in it and some linguine ala marinara. She had spaghetti and meatballs. It was a good time!

Afterward we went to see a movie but I was not even sure what was playing or what would be appropriate for her age. I kind of want to see A Haunting in Connecticut but I knew she'd be scared out of her wits for 2 months so we chose Coralline. It was a great movie and happened to be in 3D! It was a lot of fun watching that in 3D with her. The glasses are big and nerdy and black now. So cool! And strangely enough there was only four people including us in the ENTIRE theater! So we practically had the place to ourselves. We really enjoyed it. I do believe I may have to do this with one of my girls more often. The problem is I want to do it now. I think it's good for my girls to spend time like that with me.

As for the neighbor. Well, he sent some signals the other day. He's about 10. He plays with my daughters all the time. The other day I told my girls to come in so I could show them something on the computer. He came in to look too and stuck is head right by mine to look. Then my girls laughed after it and ran back outside. He didn't. He stayed. I didn't want to be mean and tell him to head back out. I figured he would. But no. He stayed and kept talking to me. Then he tried to help me with the baby. He asked if he could watch more stuff with me on the computer. Then there was a second time when he came in and was talking to me and wouldn't go away. I felt a tad bit uncomfortable. So there. My oldest daughter began teasing him about having a crush on me. I didn't even know she thought that too as we hadn't discussed it. I immediately told her to be quiet though. No sense in embarrassing the boy. That's the story! What do YOU think?

Friday Has Come!!

I am hoping to get a call about my glasses today. I still want to take some pictures in them. I seriously doubt I would ever wear glasses outside the home or on a regular basis in any way but I do wear them around the home and especially at night while lying in bed watching TV or something. I am pretty stoked about getting new ones. I have had my old ones for about 7 years. The new ones are pink. I am a lover of pink. They'll match my hair extensions. Ha!

Regardless it is Friday and I need to get out. I have had too much stress lately. This week has been a real doozy and I just want to get away. It pretty much ALL involves kids. Almost. I'd say a good 95% of it. Oh and I think the neighbor boy has a crush on me. That's another story entirely. I need to get away with just my sister and girlfriends sometime soon. That sounds like a seriously AWESOME night.

Rambling in the Morning

I have been thinking lately that there are a lot of irritating commercials out there right now. Of course there always are but I think it is a Taco Bell commercial that freaked me out. There is a guy, badly dressed up as a pregnant woman and he lifts his shirt to reveal a clear giant ball filled with taco bell food. He is selling it as a man would sell drugs on a street corner or something. This commercial was just weird.

The irritating one is that Progressive insurance chick. She has this face and voice that I just am not a fan of. I don't know what it is. Perhaps the high pitched squeal she often does. I do however like the Geico Lizard. I always chuckle at their latest spot where the business man wants the Geico to catch him as a form of trust. Oh I love imagining the old man slamming onto the floor or the lizard getting smooshed. Either way it's a lose/lose situation. Commercials are often irritating but I do love some of the ones during the Superbowl. I love the one where the lizards danced to Thriller.I use to love the old Where's the Beef commercials. Those were the days! They still bring back memories now and honestly who can forget when Michael Jackson got burned during the Pepsi commercial? The Budweiser Clydesdales are just gorgeous animals. There was a commercial where they bowed down and I remember thinking how beautiful it was.

I wonder what they'll think up next.

OK. I have heard this term a whole lot lately and I think more because of people like Miley Cyrus than anything. That age group is hugely popular right now. TV shows and singers target them. (think Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Ashely Tisdale...kill me now) I am raising four, count them FOUR daughters. Yes I am slightly insane. Anyway my twelve year old has me at my wits end right now. I realize young girls are pretty much selfish "woe is me, everyone hates me, I'm gonna run away" types of people but wow has the reality set in. My girls are really for the most part very good kids. I can't seem to get through to my twelve year old right now. She does not hear other people's opinions but only thinks we are trying to be mean to her. I need to make it through this but I only start to get the courage and then realize I have to do it still three more times. I think I may just have to find the Calgon, a bottle of White Zinfandel, a few candles and an empty house!!!

The Biggest Loser

I am going through pictures this morning and came by this one. It's my daughter with Biggest Loser contestant Jerry Lisenby. He was on the show not this past season but the one before. He got voted off after 2 or 3 shows. I can't remember for sure. He's a good friend of the family. Well actually my hubby was his boss. They did some traveling together. He reminds me of an older version of my husband. Ha! Too funny. Anyway he got on the show so of course we were all very excited to watch him. He lost a lot of weight. He was a pretty good sized guy before he did this show! Every time I see him he still looks great. He gave my daughter a shirt from the show. She was totally star struck. She still treasures that shirt. If you watch this show maybe you'll remember when they brought everyone back at the end of the season. My husband had dared him to get up there and rip off his shirt. Guess what? He did!!! We about died watching that laughing so hard.

Productive Day and Glasses

I have been out pretty much all day getting random things done. I wear contacts 99% of the time but while at home relaxing I do often just put glasses on. I do not need glasses close up, just far away. I have had the same frames for way too long and way too many prescriptions ago so I decided to just go out and look at some newer frames. I have seen some I really like. I happen to love the color pink so I was looking for something pinkish. I have lighter skin so I didn't want anything too dark either. I got a pair I liked. I may just post a picture of me styling them when I get them in. I rarely post pics of me in glasses, and honestly people really don't often see me wearing them period.

I made a stop by Starbucks as well and ordered a Tall White Chocolate Mocha. Something held up the line so I grabbed my cellphone and started cruising the Internet. The wait was really long but I had plenty to do. I got up to the window and the bouncy happy teenage girl apologized and upgraded me to a grande. So overall, not a bad day. Now I need to catch up with Entrecard!

I Can Smell Spring and Harley's

The weather was nice today though gloomy. I really need to get out there. I am craving a motorcycle ride. I can taste it. I can feel the wind in my hair and the vibration of the Harley beneath me. It's been too long. I didn't get to ride much the past two years for various reasons explained on my other blog. I am getting out...and soon. I have ridden both Harley's and your basic crotch rocket. I like both really. They are two totally different kinds of rides and both are equally exhilarating just in different ways. The Harley growls and roars and is my ride of choice. The crotch rocket is fast and smooth with more of a whine. You might actually be able to hear someone over it. Ha! I have so many different personalities and so many different interests. I am not a typical Harley Chick but I do love riding!!

Quiet Weekend

For the most part it was a quiet weekend anyway. I hosted a birthday bash for my 12 year old and a whole lot of her friends. She has a *boyfriend* or so she calls him. My dad was a strict man. Kids tend to say when they have a boyfriend or girlfriend that they are "going out". Well my father would tell me "Where ya going??!! You aren't going anywhere!" He also made it clear in no uncertain terms that if he heard us ever say we were going out with a boy he would whip our butts. Except he didn't put it so delicately. Seriously I don't find an issue with it. He's right. They aren't going anywhere. I supervise and I'm not dumb enough to let them be alone but really the only time she sees him is at school. It's more of a social thing at her age and I'm ok with that. The kid seems very nice as well. Beyond the birthday party we didn't do a lot. I did some shopping yesterday. Minor shopping but shopping nonetheless. I am kind of a shopaholic without the cash. Ha! I need to be rich so I can shop as often as I want. It's not like I need to go out either. I can do it online. I'm down with that. I am a shopoholic wannabe. I don't waste the cash. I pay the bills. I just am so pathetic that I even enjoy grocery shopping. *sigh*

Hair Care.....Down There

Yes. That is exactly what I mean. I have read so much online pretty much on accident on whether or not men and women prefer their partner to be shaved down there. It's pretty much a personal preference. Some women like to be shaved completely and some men prefer it. Here is what I have gathered from what I have read. Most women like their men trimmed but not bald because it's way too dirty movie for them. Or so it seems. Most men prefer shaved or landing strip. Some men and women do not like totally shaved because it seems too creepy if you catch my drift. I have also seen shaving stencils. Have you seen these? I can't decide if it's something that I would like or not. I think it might be neat for like a kinky night but I think beyond that having myself groomed in the shape of a heart could be slightly strange. I saw lightening bolts, x shapes and even arrows! What is your opinion on these stencils? I am just not sure. I found this site in my search: Hair Care Down There. I am still on the fence about this. I am thinking some guys would find it hot, and others would probably be slightly creeped out!

I Can So See Myself With This Job

I applied for a job today. Honestly last week I hadn't even considered going out and getting a job. It will be difficult with the kids but I saw an ad today for a job as a receptionist, part time evenings and weekends at a local Porsche dealership! I went in and they interviewed me right then. So I am hoping I get it. I think it sounds like a pretty good deal really and I could totally use the time out of the house.

Tomorrow I am hosting a birthday bash for a bunch of 11 and 12 year olds. I have a full DJ/Karaoke rig in my basement. (In case you didn't notice from previously posted parties) I imagine the kids will have a good time and of course I'll sing a little. My daughter requests it. I'll enjoy that while it lasts. My daughter can play wipe out on the drums so she's looking to show off a bit. It should be fun.

Laptop Woes

Well, my laptop is possessed by a demon. Or something close to it. To give you the history about 6 months ago I was sitting on my couch sipping my coffee (yes you know where this is going) and as I lifted my mug to my lips it somehow escaped and flipped up high in the air and came slamming down on me. Now I did have myself covered with a large comforter at the time. So it took most of the spill but my laptop did get wet. I immediately dried it off and for the most part it seemed ok. Later I saw that it sometimes spontaneously restarted and would beeeep beeeeeeeeeeeep beep super loud until it got to the login screen. It has since stopped doing that. All was well until I noticed on occasion it would scroll on it's own. This was not an immediate thing. This was a month or two later so I have no idea if there is a connection. Anyway it was mild. It would irritate me. I would punch the page up and down key and the end key. It would stop. I would go about my business. Well tonight was a whole different story. It went CRAZY. It wants to mainly scroll down. Not up. So I figure it's the page down key. Well it will work for awhile then mess up again. It was all over the place. Somehow my clock is now messed up to. It's 11:44 Ale. WHHHAT??? So I am curious as to how to fix this. When I open up my clock it seems to be set to the correct time zone. Do I have it set to the wrong language? What did my computer do? I think it has taken on a mind of it's own and has chosen it's own language. ha! Anyway if anyone has some simple clues on how to fix my clock it would be appreciated. I run virus programs and scans and spyware programs frequently. So I just don't know. Right now it's acting normally. I guarantee it won't last. *sigh*

I Have a Friend Request From Who?

I have noticed a lot lately I get friends requests on Facebook from friends of friends. I will see a name come through. I will look at the picture. I will have NO clue who it is. So I hover over the accept button wondering if there some way I actually do know this person...whether online or in the real world. Then I see the friends in common link. There will be one or two friends in common. So my conclusion is that someone sees my profile from a friends page and decides I look nice enough so they add me. I admit, I frequently ignore those requests. I have had this happen and then been bombarded with requests to join their Mob Wars. I then promptly deleted all of those people. I am a friendly girl. I like to chat. But I am sorry. I don't want to join your Mob Wars.

Have a Great Frickin Day

I just love Jeff Dunham. I wanted to start off my day with a chuckle.

The Duck Face

That's my name for the "sexy" face I see so many women making in pictures online. I'm sure I don't have any condemning evidence of me out there doing this. The worst one I have seen is Miley Cyrus. I could care less about all the horrible things she has done or how weird her and her dad's relationship is or whatever. I don't have an opinion on those things. What does annoy me is this stupid duck face. I'll just link the pics. I found these doing a random search.

Duck Face ONE

Duck Face Two and ummm I think she's not fully clothed.

There are more, but oh you get the point. I see so many young girls and even middle aged women posing like that and honestly I have to this sexy? Is it really? That's not a pouty lip. A pout is more subtle and not forced like a duck. It's one of my pet peeves. :)'s my impression of the duck lips. Yes...I had to do it. I have a sense of humor.

But I'm linking it because who wants to see that all over this page really?

Stupid Economy

Well, it really has hit home now. We kind of knew it would sooner or later. My husband did not lose his job but took a large enough pay cut that seriously, it's going to kill us. I have to think of something and soon just to make ends meet. Honestly I know everyone is feeling this now. I knew we were only seeing the beginning of this thing and I am just wondering where it's going to leave us when it's over. I am ranting today and I think most people can sympathize because we have all been hit. This is going to be rough. I just hope we can somehow make it through this. I still have a holy ton of medical bills to pay off. I get new ones all the time. I guess I'll try and think of the positives and be glad we still have medical insurance.

Is Dora the Explorer Getting Naughty?

OK. I am not a sick pervert. haha No, I found this online today really by accident. I heard they were making Dora grow up. They were trying to target the older kids and parents were throwing a fit. OK. I expected to see a totally Bratz type Dora. I expected a Barbie type mini skirt or a halter top. All they had was this silhouette:

I'm going to give my honest opinion here and say, this doesn't "seem" all that bad. I see puffed sleeves, a skirt of reasonable length and long flowing hair. I expected much worse from all the hype. Basically they are keeping old Dora and making a newer, more grown up Dora for the 10 year old crowd. I really tried to think of something bad here and I can't. I figure it's just a new show. I really do not think Dora looks like she's letting it all hang out in that little silhouette there. To each their own of course. I do respect every one's opinion but I just feel there are much bigger things to worry about in this day and age.

The Birthday

We had a decent turnout for the birthday party last night. It seems everyone had some ailment though. My brother in law who usually sings a lot was losing his voice. My good friend Allecia was recovering from a migraine, and another friend had just had hip surgery and was therefore on crutches. I chuckle as I sit here and think how a party would be when my husband is turning oh say 75 instead of 35.

Regardless we had a good time. The hubby certainly had a great time. I sang a bit and began to lose my voice from talking and singing too much. I didn't really get much for pics. I sort of just let my camera sit there and we only snapped a few of the party...but I did get some from before it started. haha Those were from my camera phone though. I am pretty tired since everyone finally left around 3 a.m. I could use a nap. Enjoy the pics!

Ever See Something So Strange

Do you ever see something so strange, you have to do a double take to be sure you saw what you thought you saw? This has happened to me a few times but most recently I looked out my front door and saw something so peculiar that I had to run and grab my camera and snap a photo. I live in a nice neighborhood. I am really not close to any farms to speak of. I am towards the outside of town but still, I am in town so needless to say when I saw this walking past my driveway I was a bit surprised.'s a rooster. It's a rather beautiful rooster. I typically think of them as white and really big and mean looking but not this one. He had colorful feathers with a lot of browns and maroon type colors. He was running around the neighborhood, hopping up on porches and making a crying sound. I felt so sorry for it. I knew it was lost and I wonder if it was maybe even a pet with how pretty it was. The neighbors ended up getting it and I'm sure it got back to it's owner...but it was pretty cold out and the poor thing was lost. Still, how often do you see something like this? haha

When Are We Officially Old?

Just kidding really. My husband turns 35 on Friday. I like to tease him because he's got a couple of years on me. I figure everyone does it to themselves. You hit 20 and you're freaking out because you aren't a teen anymore, but hey you have your 21st to look forward to. After that you start to wonder if you have no other birthdays to look forward to, other than getting older. Oh but wait! Insurance drops at 25. So you look forward to that. As 30 looms near you think OH MY GOD. I am not in my 20's anymore. I'm old...and you have a mid life crisis. You go out and buy oh say a Harley? Ha! Others might buy a sports car or look down and see they are wearing outdated clothes with an outdated hairdo and change that up. Ladies if you look up and your bangs are still super tall and stiff with Aqua Net you are kinda stuck in the 80's. Just saying!

Anyway, 35 to my husband seems way too close to 40. I look at it like this. Next year he'll be saying he's 36. Oh no! That's closer to 40 than to 30! Then of course on and on. I myself try to just age gracefully. I get carded on occasion. I'll just enjoy it while it lasts.

Dreaming of My Guitar

Well, I haven't had much opportunity at all to practice my guitar since I bought it. The trouble being the very afternoon I bought it I started feeling sick. I then got worse as the day progressed and was sick most of the week. Finally I am feeling up to par and of course my daughter is sick so I am spending all my time caring for her. So there the guitar sits...staring back at me, taunting me. I may just have to make some time tonight. I did manage to strum a bit and I am going through a book learning the basics. Still, I think I could use an actual instructor. I think it would help. Another thing that I have to do but am dreading? Getting rid of my fingernails. It may seem trivial but I know they cannot be too long. I am ready to say goodbye to the length to accomplish this goal though.
