It's all perspective

This one goes out to my best friend on the island of Puerto Rico. Don't we all seem to think the drama in our lives is horrible and some days we wonder how we make it through? Well, in my time of complete and utter chaos, Lissette and her family held me up, took me in and gave me a solid foundation to fight back.

Today I got a call and her husband crashed his helecoptor and he is laying in critical condition with multiple broken bones in his body and massive head trauma. She arranged for transport to the best neuroscience institute in the US and prior to boarding the plane he became to unstable for transport. What we would we all do?

For any old and new bloggie friends who may read this. Please put Lissette and her family into your thoughts and prayers. His name is Diego and they have 3 girls, Camille, Katherine and Nicole.

Taken a Breather

Oh my Gosh! Have I been busy. Started work 2 weeks ago and LOVE it! Although I do have to say that the 5:45 am wake up call has been rough to say the least. I get up. Get myself ready. Get the kids up, feed them, dress them, fix lunches, bundle up and send them off to catch the bus. I then go to work....haven't a lunch break yet.....leave work at 5. Get the kids and am home by 6. Fix dinner, homework, bath, hugs/kisses and bed. THEN, I get to sit down. My appreciation to all the single moms out there has become magnified by about 100. This is going to be a rough road for a bit but I can do this.

Oh, did I forget to mention that my son turned 11 on Wednesday and I turned 40 on Thursday. My son got an xbox 360 for his birthday and I got to serve my passive-aggressive, OCD, Cheshire cat, Jekyll & Hyde spouse, divorce papers! Oh yipppeee, lucky me!. Somehow this is not how I expected to celebrate my 40th birthday. I had a beer and am now over it. I don't have time to wallow in anything right now let alone, self-pity.

I am going to do my bitch and moan session right now because I probably won't have the time on Friday. Here it goes. Friends.....some you THINK are your friends and then life happens and you realize how superficial and shallow (redundancy i know) they are. For instance. I have the plague with the group of "friends" I hung out with on The Rock of Hell. None of them return my calls and I had one today pretend she didn't see me in the store. She was my BEST friend there...I did actually have one call and at least have the balls to tell me she couldn't associate with me for fear of her husband's job. (yes my spouse has a far reach) You see, I was a "tennis club wife" for a while and associated with "those" types. I guess I am back to my roots now. Just a poor worken' kinda folk. Whatever! Then I have friends who appear to be friends but chatter chatter chatter about me all the if I am talk show worthy. I guess it is easier to talk about the perils of bad luck and trouble with other people than to look inward at our own. What the fuck? What they fail to realize is we know some of the same people. So, yes, I know what they say. The judgement that goes on in these cases is just nauseating to me. I can handle it but when it comes to talking about my kids, the fucking line will be drawn! My kids have been through hell this year and my son is still pulling straight A's has been recommended for GATE, is doing great in soccer and is a typical 11 year old boy and my daughter, well she's my daughter and never missed a beat. So for all you nay-sayers out there who have looked down your noses at me and judged the choices I have made, I am doing right by my kids and they are and will be fine. Probably even better as adults then they ever would of been had I stayed. So fuck you, fuck off and go judge someone else!

Mommy, Mommy...Come Quick

So I do. I bust my ass getting down the stairs thinking she is hurt or stuck in the closet....I run around the corner into the kitchen and collapse into a laughing heep!. To her 5 year old dismay, she begins with the "sad" face. "don't you like it? I worked really hard on it and you're laughing at it." Trying to regroup and gain some composure (still cracking up and talking through clinched jaw to ease her pain) I say "why don't you tell me about your .........laughing hysterically AGAIN, masterpiece." Now I am getting the brow frown. "why are you laughing at me mommy?" I am completely unable to regain my composure and am sitting on the floor laughing so hard, tears are forming. all at the expense of my 5 year old little princess........but here is why

A Penis and its nuts.....right??? Are you all with me? I am thinking, racing in my head why in the world would my daughter be creating a clay model of a dick? Then she says to me "why don't you like my weaner dog? WHAT????????????????? a dog I say? She says "yes, a dog, see." and she turned it around........

Need I say more?

Weekly B&M per jilljillbobill

Here is my "thing" this week. Why do so many people walk around afraid to express their true political opinions? Why can't people just say "I think McCain or I think Obama just fell off the truck and there is no way in God's name I would vote for them"? Instead we get "well, I feel as though we need change in America and we need to end the war and we need to talk to promote peace. GAWD we all sound like a bunch of beauty pageant contestants vying for a title. Why are so many people afraid to tell it like it is. If you piss someone off and they won't talk to you then they were never that good of a friend to begin with and you are probably better off without them. Seriously, my two best friends and I couldn't have more different political beliefs and we TALK about them and we fight and then agree to disagree. So I would proudly display my McCain/Palin sticker (if I had one) and my two best friends would tamper with my car in some way and then I would get them back for having Obama on theirs. We would all know who did what and vow to get them back worse next time.

B&M #2
What is up with what I call "gym do"s"? You all know the ones I am talking about. The women who "do" their hair and "do" their make-up and "do" what ever they can to look hot when they are glistening and supposedly working out. I don't know about you guys but I fricken sweat. I mean man sweat. I leave puddles and my clothes look like I just went for a swim. No, I am not a "gym do" in any fashion and one day I think I will put my foot out and trip one of them just because I can. I bet their face will still be on the floor even when they are standing because of the plaster they applied prior to coming! I just don't get it........
