Crazy for my kiddos..in love with wine and socially alone in a new state ( Colorado from Cali ) Read on :)

so long ,long long year

Wow I haven’t written in so long that I forgot my username and password. Apparently my WordPress account privacy is very important because I had an easier time registering Max for school then getting into this account . SO here we are :

This year has been challenging not even gonna lie . Looking forward to 2016 and not looking back . I’ve learned ( learning ) that looking back is a pity party I can so easily attend. (the visual I try to remember is I’m swimming in the ocean and seaweed is everywhere -I am irritated as it brushes against me however I keep swimming forward NOT backwards to get away and eventually there is clear water and stillness and I am at peace.)

I have some wishes ( dare I say prayers ) for 2016 ..fuck maybe just for life :

-I pray for David and Max’s happiness and that they laugh more.

-I pray for sleep (seriously )

-I pray for closure

-As Sex and The City so eloquently put it -my friends become my soul mates ( they already are just took some unfortunate situations for me to be reminded of this )

-I pray ( wish ) for the peace to live in the moment not a million miles ahead and not a million miles behind.

-I wish this to be 100 % true :

-I wish for adventures for all I know .

 

Any resolutions ? Yes a zillion and three ..hahhahaha ..:) what about you ?

Have a wonderful week all !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And when I was a kid

Is there anything more annoying than the “when I was a kid ” statements ..no there is not ..so I must join in ..

I was looking at the cutest fresh eyed faces the other day of teenagers ..god they are adorable …ya know what I instantly thought ?? ( #imoldnow) ..

When I was kid …

Freedom was my bicycle..not free wifi so I can play angry birds and my parents wont bitch about data minutes

My first job was a fantastic privilege where I wanted to do so good and earn my own money..not omg how sad your parents are making you “get a job instead of focusing on schoolwork ” ( WE DID BOTH BTW..it is possible ..)

EVERYTHING in the house belonged to my parents ..the TV my room my clothes ..none of this well it is yours ..they bought owned it and it could be taken away..”until you are 18 it is all mine dont you forget it ” was spoken often

I knew my friends loved me because they hung out with me ..I didnt gage my social status on a like on social media

TV in my room ?? LMFAO ….you get 30 mins on sat AM ” be happy you get that some kids dont at all ”

Birthday parties were this ..YAY we get hang with our friends and eat cake ..not “princess parties ” or where ur fav super hero shows up ..the entertainment WAS YOUR FRIENDS eating cake with you and playing pin the tail on the donkey ( if u were lucky )

NO TEENAGER would curse infront of adults because you would have 18 parents that all would beat your ass ..AND THAT WOULD BE OK ..infact encouraged ..

Underwear hanging out of your pants ?? this would be along the same line as peeing ur pants in school ..your peers would make sure this never happened ..

AND on that note ..baseball caps were worn as “i play for this team ” or ” i love his team ” NOT with the tag still on hanging sideways as a “fashion statement ”

Your parents were embarrassing and strict and made you eat your veggies NOT your friend who took you to a Taylor Swift concert at age 8 only to do a horrid “selfie” with eight of your friends.

If you were 12 and dressed like you were a las vegas hooker you were a slut not “a fashionista”

Miss behaving in public was not because you had “add adhd ocd ” it was because you were being an asshole and hell hath no furry like a parent embarrassed in public.

I was raised to respect myself by having boundaries I knew, love I had and respect for the world around me ..

I can ONLY hope my kids get that too…ok rant over ..am I that old already ??

Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder Right ?

It’s been so damn long since I wrote anything …I actually forgot I liked to blog …

Updates : Dave is dating a new little lady ..they seem happy (haven’t met her) Unfortunately a 20 year old boy rarely sends mommy pics so this is all I got. Dave is looking into getting a studio by himself ( SHUDDER) if his roommate situation doesn’t come thru by September 1st ( How in the fuck did he get so old ?? SERIOUSLY THOUGH ). I miss Dave alot -it’s been too long since I have seen him and I’m getting itchy. He is however answering more of my phone calls so there’s a plus !

Max has been exploring CO this summer and we also took a wonderful trip to AL to see family. The kid is spoiled beyond belief and doesn’t even know it. He starts 1st grade mid August so we are packing in all the fun we can on my days off. ( i have more pics of Max since I get to take them -this is a total guilt trip dave ..send more pics or come out here )

I have been through alot of “interesting ” feeling/things lately (I wont go into details) BUT I hit some lows and seem to be getting back on track. Working out everyday helps and eating clean sounds weird but it gives me something to focus on and something to challenge myself with. I HIGHLY recommend starting a program if you start to feel “depressed ” ( overused word but you get the jest ) OH and wine helps too. 729c0715210689cec1754cf23893b54a


Some thoughts lately :

I am SO DONE WITH NETFLIX !! I want cable but cannot afford the prices #firstworldproblems WAHHHHHHHHH

when-you-see-lexptf

My work is a joke and Im getting bored ..we have so little call volume now that I spend about 12 hours on Facebook oh and PInterest .. hahha NOT complaining but need to be a little challenged …so long story short this is what I want to sing :

I am LOVING country right now ..yep might even get boots ( this is not a joke ) ..too many songs to list BUT give country a try ..y’all ..:) you might like !

Hope July was everything you expected and August brings great treasures for everyone ..I know I am hopeful …

AND WITH THAT ..Funny memes ( not for the faint of heart )

This week I have a bucket list YES for this week ..

it was suggested to me to do a week bucket list. I like it cuz its fast and easy and really makes you think ..what do I want to do this week ..

well for me …

1. Make a collage.

2. Pray.

3. Roll down a hill.

4.Play soccer.

5.Bring coffee to someone.

6.Think I look pretty.

7. Laugh so hard I pee a little.

8. Allow someone to make my day.

anything you want to add ? 🙂

A Little Pink Eye Perspective

I woke up with pink eye this morning  ..yes pink eye ..yes I am near 35 (40) and I have pink eye like a toddler ..I believe little nasty kiddos from a party Max and I went to this weekend gave  this to me ..the whole snotty lot of them ..with “allergies ” or ” wow that’s new he never sneezes like that ” B.S. your kid is a germ factory ( albeit a cute one BUT a germ factory ) anyway my eyes hurt and are itchy however I do have to say some positives came out of it :

1. I could not stop anywhere on the way into work ..therefore saving money.

(Quasimodo anyone ?? look at the eyes …images

2.My coworkers have avoided me like the plague ..therefore leaving me tons of time to get get work done(blogging) .

3.My office has never been cleaner -scrubbing like it’s an operating room .

4.I have to (get to) go to urgent care after work ..why is this a positive ..?? I KNOW this is weird BUT they are so nice there …u get to lie down in a room for 20 mins alone ..they have magazines I CAN READ A MAGAZINE ..after reviewing this it either A.sounds like I have a horrible life or B. I am trying to be a martyr ..neither are true ..I just ( by choice mind you ) get VERY VERY little time alone ..or without responsibility .

ANYWAY get a little pink eye and you too may see the positives in a Monday !

My random acts of kindness “project “- I am actually digging this and look forward to it ..

I am now counting “letting someone in on the freeway ” and ” picking up litter on the sidewalk ” BUT I digress ..

It really does focus attention on “how can I help others and the world ” V.S. “I am about to fuck some one up” ( angry face ) hahhaha

Have a wonderful week all 🙂
