Its NEW YEARS EVE! What are you all going to be doing???
LOL! That will hopefully be me tomorrow morning! I have stated that I do want to go out and get plastered tonight for no apparent reason. But ummm it is already 8:30pm here in Ohio and the wife is STILL passed out cold in bed from this morning. (she worked last night) So maybe we will go out and maybe not? I don't care really. Oh who the hell am I trying to kid! Of course I friggin care! All my friends have been calling all day wanting us to come out and I can't even wake her ass up! lol Oh well I do have 3 bottles of wine in the fridge. Guess I can do something with that huh????
Well here is hoping that you all have a
Oh yea it snowed like friggin crazy here in Ohio. Errrrrrr

Stupid fu*king dog!
He started out good.! At least that is what I thought! I let him off his mandatory leash for a few hours while I caught up on blogs and did some work. Only to discover that the sh*t head got into everything!
Somehow the as*hole got my blackberry off the bed (while I was getting dressed from my shower) and starting gnawing on it! Now my prescious blackberry has a massive scratch down the front of it and bite marks all over it and two of the keys on it are almost gone!
He managed to get the wifes lotion out of the travel bag (we haven't un packed from Georgia yet) and chew that all up and now there is lotion on her comfortor! (thank god it isn't on mine!)
I found the house key in the hallway (thank god that is metal!)
Found one remote that he somehow also got ahold of...
Yea he is a chewing machine! And his bones and toys are all around him... and what does he chew on??? Household items!
Little stupid fu*ker!
Now I would NEVER hurt an animal! I love animals and I know he is still just a puppy... but the thought of haning him up by his little toes and gutting him is sounding all the more appealing right now!
And the wife will just laugh about it! Well let her laugh! Cuz the minute she coddles that damn dog I am on strike! She needs to learn not to reward that damn behavior!
Can you tell I'm a little pissed off right now?
On another less pissed off note.. I realized I passed my 100th post! lol I think this is like 102 or 103. Not sure.. lost track being pissed off at the dog!
I realized something else.. It takes me two hours or more to read thru all the blogs I follow! Wow. I never realized it til just now! I finally get thru reading them all and look at the time! It is almost 8am here in Ohio and I think I started my blog roll reading around 5:30 or 6am.
Now that is some dedication I have to all of your blogs! Now go get dedicated to mine! I have tons of new ones! :) Just click on my profile! You might find something interesting to read about!
Tell me something... When you use the Google Search engine what is the one thing you Google the most??? What is the topic that you like to look up!? Need this for research purposes! lol
Well the wife should be home any minute from work so I have to go make the house look somewhat presentable. Since I know she will be fending for herself if she coddles that damn dog!

Other than coming home the weekend was pretty relaxing to say the least. I mean hell I didn't come out of my jammies at all and (hence the lack of blogs) barley got on the computer while we were there. All in all nice and relaxing. And it's just what we needed!
We did end up taking one of the 3 dogs with us (the other 2 stayed with grandma) and he was just a peach the whole time! He got to see his momma. (We got him from Georgia) I do have some very cute pictures :
Well that is all to report right now. I have a LOT of cleaning and things to do tonight. So I will get to reading and commenting on blogs later in the evening after the house is quiet and calm! :)

To start the wife got a navigation system for Christmas. All fine and dandy... Except that our charger in our car for outlets like phones and things does not work and hasn't worked since before I can remember... So the stupid thing died. Well we didn't really need it anyway. We knew where and how to get here. We've been here a million times before. But OH NO. The wife just wanted that dumb dumb thing to work! So we spent an extra 1 1/2 hours roaming the country side of southern Ohio trying to find a stupid Walmart to get a charger for it! Well no such luck! The one we were looking for, well they just don't carry it any longer! Matter of fact...NO ONE DOES! So we wasted precious road time there!!!!! OMG! Needless to say we did manage to arrive in Georgia around 7:30 last night... All fine and dandy... (Mind you we have to go through MOUNTAINS to actually get to our destination....)
So off we go through the back woods of northern Georgia...at night.... and what happens to us????
Are you wondering yet????
Fog as thick as friggin pea soup! We seriously drove like 20mph all through that damn mountain! Of course I, being the scared shitless person that I am, held my breath. I mean you seriously couldn't see 5 feet in front of you in some spots! OMG! Then once to the road that we need to turn on you feel like you are in a scene from The Hills Have eyes or Wrong Turn.! Needless to say I locked the doors! The drive usually doesn't bother me during the day. But f*ck ever doing that at night again! Nope not me!
But we did arrive safely and gorged ourselves on Turkey and all the trimmings and passed out hard!
So we are here and nothing really exciting is happening. Well not yet at least.. It is only 9:30am. Lol and momma is still sleeping and the baby is awake (not mine oh no!) And the wife is playing outside with the dog.
So I will keep you posted. It will probably be a pretty boring day around these parts. Which is ok by me. That is what we come here for... Rest and Relaxation!
I want to again thank E and Joey for guest posting on the blog! It was fun reading all the comments from both posts! YAY!!!

Hello. Uhm, I'm E from E*Deconstructed
So here's the thing. I've never been asked to guest blog for anyone before and I'm suffering from a mild case of performance anxiety.
Ok, I lie. A huge case! GINORMOUS even. Cue the nightmares about standing naked in front of a classroom full of people. Normally, I have no problems being funny. I exude funny without even trying. But now I'm already on my second paragraph and not a drop of amusing anectode or a single sentence that will induce a genuine "LOL" situation.
Well, it's all downhill from here anyway so hold on to your toboggan and here we go!
Not midget short or anything but in bare feet I stand just a hair above 5ft even. It's ok most of the time...short is cute and cuddly right? I'm lower to the ground and closer to gravity so it helps with the balance problems. I don't ever have to worry about wearing sky-high heels (which I adore) and towering over the guy I'm with. People like to do me favors (aka patronize me) like reach for things and carry heavy objects (although I suspect that last one is because I'm also "little" which is not the same as being "short" and take full advantage of the fact that people think I'm weak). I fit in kid sized clothing, which may not be a big deal to you people but when you are into sports (football to be exact) the difference between fitting into a kid's medium jersy and a women's small is about $20 to $30 dollars...SCORE! But the best thing about being short is this...I am genetically predisposed to be a championship HIDE-and-SEEK player! SERIOUSLY! I fit into a LOT of places most people can't! For example:
1) An extra large Rubbermaid storage container:
2) A large Radioshack shopping bag...and yes, you can close it over my head.
3) Standard kitchen cupboards (the semi big ones that are usually found under the sink) as well as some of the medium ones found above the counter
4) Sports Duffel Bags:
5) Most ten gallon garbage bags and/or garbage cans
6) Wheeled suitcases
7) The compartments in the galley area of some 50ft boats.
8) The compartment you find in the back of smaller cars that...
You know...I don't really know you people reading this blog and I've just given an all inclusive list of places and things that can be conveniently used to store a cold dead body...MY cold dead body
*nervous giggle* I joked....haha, uhm...disregard the previous post. I'm really a 6'2 former defensive tackle named Grid-Iron Gary...so uhm...stay away!
That was E from E*Deconstructed
I officially survived the night...wooohooo... It wasn't too bad.. We ended up going to church beforehand and I thought I was going to die becuz I felt soooo horrible. I thought I was going to hack up a lung right there in the middle of O Holy Night. My throat felt swollen and I was dry heaving every 5 seconds. Not to mention that I was up all night and all day getting things ready and the house semi cleaned. We ate and opened gifts and got home around 2am. Man it was a long long night! I got a lot of clothes and new shoes. And we got a crock pot! YAY!!! We almost bought one and now glad that we didn't becuz we got a huge one!
That is the bad boy that we got! Yea that is the only picture on photobucket that I could find of one that is just like ours... HAHA Now I know how much they spent on it! lol Just call me lazy.. I could have went out to the living room and took a picture of ours...but hey I am just waking up and don't feel like moving just yet. Now watch..I'm going to publish this post and go back and have to edit it becuz the picture is to big or something! lol oh well... it will just keep me busy!
This is my beautiful wife posing in her newest addition of collection of New England Patriots wear! Oh she LOVES her Patriots! Her aunt and uncle went to Massachusets a few months back and picked her up this hoodie and a pj set! She just fell in love with them! Her mom and I have her a New England Patriots watch and hat on the way for her birthday! So then she will be all set! lol Now if only I could find her boxers and a sports bra in New England Patriots wear we would be set and she would be in heaven !!!
I got tons of outfits! OMG! I think it completely replaced my existing wardrobe but no I don't have pictures of me to plaster up here! lol Though her aunt and mom did make me try on EVERY SINGLE outfit and model them so that they could inspect and make sure everything fit just right! lol Yea that is the point of the night where I looked at the wife and said.... "UMMMM I think it's time to go now!" But hey I survived!
And now it is Christmas day and I am doing what I do best.. NOTHING! The wife is asleep and I am up blogging away! It's about 1pm here in good old Ohio and we didn't eve get snow today. The wife has to work all night tonight and in the morning we leave for :
Yup we leave for good old Georgia in the morning! It should make for an interesting drive since the wife won't be coming home and sleeping.. She will be coming home packing her bad and we will be getting on the road! LOL!
Well I dont' have much more to add or input. I will blog for you all I'm sure over the weekend or later today! So signing off now,
Wednesday, December 24, 2008
Till I go to hell! lol No really about 4 more hours until I head to the inlaws for their Christmas get together! God help me! This should be interesting since I havent' celebrated the holiday in at least 7 years! How do you do it!?
Mind you this is only part one of a two part series! I still have to survive the Christmas tonight! ACK!!! Can't this just be over with already??? OMG! Seriously!
I want to take a minute to thank Joey for his guest post yesterday! He did a wonderful job! YAY!!!!
We have another post coming shortly as soon as she gets around to emailing me back HINT HINT! lol! Believe me she will have you falling off your seats laughing! NO PRESSURE!
Well I have been up all night and still have emails and other things to do... So I will let you all get back to your families! Have fun and have a safe night and a wonderful day tomorrow!
Tuesday, December 23, 2008
Well it looks like I'm Sabrae's Guest Blogger! You are probably wondering who the hell I am, actually I often wonder the same thing! I'm LL Cool Joe of Joey's Pad. You can call me Joe or Joey. Actually I prefer Joey now because my 14 year old daughter has just got her first boyfriend, and he's called Joe. Of all the names in the world and he had to have the same one as mine. They say that daughters choose boyfriends who are like their Dad, but I'm not sure she had to go as far as chosing one with the same name! Am I allowed to say I don't like him? He's not good enough for my daughter. I was kind of hoping she'd go out with a Prince Harry or William but no it's lanky Joe with greasy hair, spots and a brace on his teeth. I know, I know looks aren't what it's all about, but you want the best for your kids don't you? Still she's only 14 so hopefully she'll meet her prince or princess, of course. I'm rambling on now!
So, I'm quite a new visitor to this blog, but actually discovered it because of the post that Sabrae wrote about the Pregnant Man, a subject that I can relate too and felt strongly enough about to comment on. So I'm a Brit, so sorry about my accent and strange use of the letter "U" in certain places. I have 2 beautiful adopted girls aged 10 and 14, and have been in a loving relationship for many many years. I'm a dj and love music more than anything else in the world. I think that probably I don't fit that well into the "followers crowd" here as I'm not into candles, and gift sets and perfume, but Sabrae has made me feel very welcome here and gave me a "Love Your Blog" award, so here I am, droning on about me! If you want to know more about my life then visit Joey's Pad and my other blogs.
But this isn't my blog it's Sabrae's so..........
What I'm interested to know is why you are here?
How do you know Sabrae?
Oh and finally just to say
Well today went swimingly... that is until the MIL called. Now I for some reason am being bullied by the wife to be all Christmasy and go make COOKIES! How the HELL did I get conned into making and icing Christmas cookies?? Oh and apparently I have no say what-so-ever in this matter. I was promptly told that we are going there tomorrow (today i guess -it is 2:30am) and I'm going to like it becuz she is going to make ME a non-scrooge! OMG! Well she has another thing coming! Can't she leave my convictions about this blasted holiday alone??? Of course not! What's worse yet..I have to be there Wednesday as well for Christmas on Christmas Eve! WTF??? Two days in a friggin row??? Are you kidding me??? If I don't post in a few days you will know that I have magically and blissfully thrown myself in front of a moving semi-truck!
I so far have two people who are going to be guest posting this week!! Yay!!! Can't wait to hand over the reins and let them at it!!! :)
Well the food and sleep beckon me! So for now I am off! I promise to try and not murder myself while in the process of cooking baking! OMG! I can't believe she is making me friggin do this! Can't it be the 26th already??? WOW!!!

How are we this fine EARLY monday morning?? Me??? Well I am doing good! Doing more than good actually! Last night the wife and I started a blog together!!! But it's not a blog like this one! This is my outlet and funny type of blog. The blog we started is about our love of animals and bringing them a voice! We did our first post together this morning! You can see it by clicking here and let me know what you think! The wife is excited about it. So cute she is!
In other news not much happened here last night. The wife came home from work last night.. we made dinner TOGETHER and watched some t.v. til about midnight and passed out. I didnt' think I was going to be able to fall asleep...but sure enough.. I was out like a light and now up at 8:30am. This should make for a long long intersting day and give me something to blog about later!
Also... I am looking for a guest poster! Are you up to the task?? Leave me a comment telling me that you would like to guest post and email me and we will get the details in line! :)
Also no worries! I am NOT going anywhere! lol But please make sure to check out the other blog and follow it to! You can see it by clicking here

And for all of you out there wondering if I have officially lost my marbles...Nope I'm all better now! I finally got about 3 1/2 hours of sleep today. So I feel better and ready to go for the night! Ahhhh its amazing what a little power nap can do for the mind, body, and eye sockets! No I am not addicted to the Internet..But it is my only source of outlet when the wife is at work. (like she is now)
I did make the wife go get me this stuff today! YAY!!! So now I am all caffinated and loving it! I swear me and no diet Pepsi makes for one cranky b**ch! She really did learn that the hard way one day! So now she knows if I text her and tell her I'm out of it she knows to either come home with it or don't come home at all! lol
This is my best friend when the wife is at work! And it is now my better bestest friend becuz the wife just text me and told me she is coming home from work!!! YAY!!!
Can we say ??? Well duh!
I'm liking photobucket if you can't tell! LMAO!!! It really is making for a better post on my part becuz I can let you visualize it all with me! Yes now I offically think I need therapy right?? Well I found this today haha!!! Don't you agree!?
Well not much else to do or say! I have to now go offically make dinner since the wife is on the phone with me telling me she is hungry and we are discussing what I am going to make! I just love how she assumes that! LOL!
Well signing off,
Ok so do you know what I did last night??? I spent 14 1/2 hours in a live stream chat trying to win a stupid Coffee Brewer! Yes 14 1/2 hours!! Mind you it is now after midnight in Ohio! I only got 3 (or was it 2?) hours of sleep today before I had to wake the wife up for work! So yes I am offically kinda going NUTS! The dogs keeping pooping and peeing all over the house! So I am kinda at my wits end!
Thanks for your feed back on my post about telling my kids about Santa or not! One person even told me the other parents might hate me becuz my kid won't believe in Santa and they will be telling all the other kids about it! HAHA! Oh well.. I guess I will cross that bridge when I get to it...
I offically running down to the last can of this stuff...Not a good combo when I feel this way! Diet Pepsi and I are like some with their morning cups of coffee... I do NOT function correctly with out it! Therefore the wife WILL suck it up and go get me more when she gets home in the morning!
Ok I think that about sums it up for now! Sorry I did not amuse you today! Usually when it comes to me and lack of sleep I am MUCH better about making you somewhat laugh! lol

The Story Behind MomFaves.com from MomFaves.com on Vimeo.
Friday, December 19, 2008
TheWife : My mom still puts 'From : Santa' on most of my gifts.
Me : (this pops out with NO thought what-so-ever on my part) "I will never teach our kids about Santa"
TheWife : (Says nothing at first but gives you that eerie silent head turn with WIDE eyes)
Me : Oh shit... what????
TheWife : What do you mean you will never teach our kids about Santa?
Me : (being the wise ass that I am and speaking ever so truthfully) Why would I lie to our kids about something that isn't real? Why would I tell them about a fat man that comes down our chimney or thru our doors to give them gifts and not the REAL meaning of Christmas?
TheWife : Well.....
Me : (On my anit Christmas high horse) I refuse to let our kids believe in something that isn't real! It's all propaganda. Christmas is about the birth of Jesus and that is what we will teach them end of story....
TheWife : Well I actually kinda agree with you. Just never thought of it that way.
Point for me.. I win... But what do you think?? Do you think I will be an evil mother for not teaching my kids about Santa?? Or the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy for that matter??? I mean it's not like we won't get them presents and all that stuff... But in my mind why would I teach them about Santa when a few years down the road I'm going to have to fess up and tell the truth eventually anyway? And to me.. Christmas isn't about Santa! It's about Jesus' birth and HIS story.
So please I want your feedback! Should I lie to my kids and tell them all about Santa or the truth from the get go and move on??? I'm interested in what you think about it. I personally didn't grow up in a very good decent home. We were lucky to have food on the table most nights. And my mom is an alcoholic and drug user.. So any money she did get went to the local dealer or the bar down the road. I was always told I was too bad and that Santa passed our house by. So hmfp. Yeah that does some mental damage to a kid... Did you think I was joking in that Christmas MeMe I did a while ago when I stated "kids are supposed to get gifts?"??? Well I wasn't. I never got a thing as a child for Christmas. Not living with my real mom that is. So it was all kinda ruined for me from the get-go.
Ok that is enough of my past for now... Just pisses me off to think about it.
Right now save 50-75% off on selected items! This offer good until December 31st! If you would like a list of the items before you go shop around let me know and I will email it to you! Just drop me a line at sabrae_carter @ yahoo.com
But first of course I have to lay out the rules! Ooh those darn rules! LOL!!
Here are the rules:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
I'm a fairly recent reader. Introduce yourself in five sentences or less
Well this is kinda a hard one! Me in 5 sentences or less??? You mean I can't write a book???Dang... Ok well I am a work from home housewife and mother of 3 dogs. I love to read. I hate the holidays. I have a huge heart and LOVE to help people. And I have multiple piercings and tattoo's!
You have a very interesting name. What's the story behind it?
Well as you know my name is Sabrae. From what little I do know of my name and where it came from, my birth mom told me that she met a lady when her and my dad ran with the carnival ( yes I am a carnie baby and hate carnie jokes) and her name was also Sabrae (but I think spelled way different than mine) and my mom became friends with her and asked her if she could name me after her! I have never met this woman but think it would be neat to do so!
What is the one thing about yourself you love the most?
One thing about me I love the most is that I am a strong person who has over come a lot in my short 25 years of life and feel it has made me the woman that I am today! :)
What is the one thing about yourself that you like the least?
HMMMMM This could be a tuff one! I would have to say... my boobs! I hate em! End of story! They are seriously just TOOOOOOOOOO friggin big! (I know I know laugh it up!)
I see you are in love. What is the one thing about your partner that makes her stand out?
Well everything about my wife stands out! I can't really narrow it down to one particular thing. If I had days and days I could write a book about it all! But since I have this post I can just say that you are correct... I am very much in love with my wife. She is beautiful inside and out. She and I are so similar...she is so compassionate. Never judges. Always open to new possibilites. And I find something new to fall more in love with her EVERYDAY! She spoils the hell out of me. Makes me smile. And truly touches my heart in a way that no one else was ever able to. With her I found true love! :) She is sincerly my soulmate and I wouldn't change it for the world!
Well that was my interview! I know kinda sincere and touching there for a moment wasn't it!? Blah... have to go wash that icky taste out of my mouth!
Ok back! I am hoping soon to have a guest post on this lovely blog of mine soon! I have already approched her with the idea... she still has not gotten back to me on when she is going to do it.. COME ON ALREADY!!!!! For some of my long time followers you saw her videos that I posted not to long ago! She is truly the funniest woman I have ever had the privilage of commenting back and forth and a few emails with! If you haven't had the chance to read everything and have no idea who or what I am talking about then WHAT THE HELL IS A MATTER WITH YOU!? No just kidding just click here and watch her videos!! You will die laughing!!!
I have been meaning to get a picture of the house up the road from us... Ok Tena I give up on you and your Christmas decorations...but nothing can be this overdone!!! I'm seriously tempted to go walk the 5 minutes down the road RIGHT NOW to show you how over the top this house truly is! OMG! But I won't...becuz mainly it is 1am here in Ohio and it's freakin freezing balls here! If I had balls I'm pretty sure that they would be frozen! And to top it off... We are supposed to get freezing rain and snow and more rain and more snow and it's supposed to storm and come all at once and well THAT JUST SUCKS! Knowing that the wife is going to be driving back to work to that shit tomorrow night is going to give me a friggin coranary! I already hate all thigngs mobile I don't drive and I go batty when she leaves as it is on NICE days! I'm seriously going to be freaking the f**k out tomorrow night!
Speaking of which... we are adjusting pretty well to the new shift and all... Well somewhat.. We went shopping for blah.....Christmas gifts (I just went kicking and screaming becuz I know I will have to be the one to wrap all this shit!) at 4am last night! Yes we were in Walmart at 4 friggin am!!! And do you think that place was dead at 4am ???? OMG! Nope! Not to mention the fact that you can't get down the isles anyway becuz all the night shifters stocking shelves! Have I mentioned that I hate the holidays yet??? Well if not... BAH HUMBUG! One of these days I might explain my rational to you all...But for now I will just continue to hate the idea of shopping and decorations and all that stuff you holiday freaks do and wish really really hard for the new year to be here so I can go get plastered already !!! :)
So to leave you all... I want you to listen to this friggin funny song that I heard for the first time TODAY!

I tell you I've never laughed so hard, I immediatly had to call the wife and read it to her..unfortuantly she had to read it when she got home becuz I was laughing WAY to hard to finish it.....Now mind you I don't know if this story actually happened or not...but man oh man if it did I WISH I had been there to witness it becuz it sounds JUST LIKE something I would say!
So, after landing my new job as a Wal-Mart greeter, a good find for many retirees, I lasted less than a day...About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud, unattractive, mean-acting woman walked into the store with her two kids, yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance. As I had been instructed, I said pleasantly, 'Good morning, and welcome to Wal-Mart. Nice children you have there. Are they twins?'The ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say, 'Hell no, they ain't twins. The oldest one's 9, and the other one's 7. Why the hell would you think they're twins? Are you blind, or just stupid?'So I replied, 'I'm neither blind nor stupid, Ma'am, I just couldn't believe you got laid twice. Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart.' My supervisor said I probably wasn't cut out for this line of work.
Now isn't that just freaking hiliarous??? OMG! I seriously had to run to the nearest sink and spit out my cherised Diet Pepsi to keep it from blowing out my nose!
So I leave you with this:

I get up (if i'm not up already) around 4am.
Let the dogs out and feed them
Make the wife her lunch (if she has to work that day)
Send wife out the door for her 12 hour shift
Read and comment on blogs
and that is about all I do for the rest of the day (unless the house needs cleaned)
So I have purposefully not been writing becuz like I stated...nothing really to write about! I do have this HILARIOUS post that I found on someone elses' blog that I will be posting tomorrow!! I had to ask her permission first and got it! If you don't die laughing at it you are seriously deranged!
In other news the wife got her promotion at work! YAY!!! But it kinda sucks in a way since I will be stuck at home AT NIGHT alone now instead of during the day! Yea she got the promotion but she has to go to the night shift now... so somehow I have to think of a way to keep her up all night tonight after her long shift today at work... and she will have tomorrow off and start up monday night on her new shift... It's exciting and she has been working hard at getting this promotion..but damn it all... I don't like being here alone during the day let alone being here all friggin night!!! But it could work out since I am a night person anyway... And when we got together she was on nights...but then again I wasn't living here at the time either! So we will see how this goes! The bright side and the down side is she is working two long weeks in a row so that means two big paychecks in a row...woohooo!!!

One could only wish!
So not to much happened today... I took a nap about noon and woke up around 4. Started dinner as soon as the wife got home from work and now she is passed out (where I should be) behind me snoring away :) LOL Well I shouldn't really say snoring per say...but breathing VERY heavily!
Believe it or not I have been reading blogs... just not taking the time to comment on them recently becuz I am STILL trying to get caught up on everything from my little break over the weekend. Teach me! OMG! Emails out the ass ....... oh well that is the price I pay for being so darn popular LOL!!!!! But I PROMISE to get to commenting tomorrow morning.. I swear it to you or else I will let Georgie and Tena come to Ohio and make me Jolly... And we all know how much I DON'T WANT THAT! :)
So be on the look out!!! I will be visiting your blogs soon!!! Much love! Oh and here is a free hug to you all...

Sunday (today) we did a big whole lotta nothing! And the wife actually got me to play Halo 3 on X-box live with her! LOL Needless to say I got shot A LOT but did manage 3 kills of my own on my first try! LOL!!!!!!!! The wife wasn't happy about that since it took her like 3 days to get one kill! Guess I'm just a natural! But I don't like video games all that well. Give me an old nintendo any day with the Mario brothers and I'm happy. I seriously just don't get all this new crap. And what's with all the buttons??? ACK!
Ok so I'm seriusly trying to upload a photo right now and it's taking like 15 years or something.........And it's a cute one of me and clyde (our puppy) taken earlier today. HMMMMM this could get seriously annoying really really quick....
See I told you it was a cute one! I know just look at me..or err the dog.... look at the dog! LOL! He was getting ready to go outside in the snow and cold to potty. This time of year it is hard to get pictures of the other two as they seem to duck and run when it's time to go outside. But not Clyde! lol He is ready... even giving me the nudge to get my butt out the door... lol Man now that I think about it... I can't believe I posted this picture of me and the dog! lol I look like crap... No make up and if I remember correctly I'm in my jammies at 6pm! lol Shows just how lazy we were today.
Well I can't think of anything else to really report on....or talk about at this moment in time... hmmmmmm NOPE nothing is coming to me...

ST. LOUIS – At a suburban Goodwill store on Friday, Theresa Settles selected a large, black comforter to warm her family until she can raise the money to turn the gas heat back on. A petite woman approached, her face obscured by dark sunglasses and a wrapped winter scarf, and handed Settles two $100 bills stamped with the words "secret Santa." "The only condition," she said, "is that you do something nice for someone. Pass it on."
"I will," Settles said, the only words she could get out of her mouth.
The secret Santa was a protege of Kansas City's undercover gift giver, Larry Stewart, who died of cancer nearly two years ago. Stewart roamed city streets each December doling out $100 bills to anyone who looked like they might need a lift.
Before his death in January 2007, Stewart told a friend how much he would miss his 26 years of anonymous streetside giving, during which he gave away about $1.3 million. Stewart, from the city suburb of Lee's Summit, made millions in cable television and long-distance telephone service.
The friend promised Stewart he would be a secret Santa the next year. "He squeezed my hand and that was it," said the Kansas City Santa, who would say only that he was an area businessman and investor. "I honored a promise."
Two secret Santas, one from the Kansas City area and the other from the St. Louis area, descended on thrift stores, a health clinic, convenience store and small auto repair shop to dole out $20,000 in $100 bills, hugs and words of encouragement to unsuspecting souls in need.
In this economy, they weren't hard to find.
Cynthia Brown, 40, was laid off three weeks ago from her food service job. Santa found her at the St. Louis County health clinic and gave her $100, exactly what she had asked to borrow from her mother a night ago to buy food.
"I have three daughters, and I can't get unemployment yet. I was down in food," she said.
Leotta Burbank, 50, of West Frankfurt, Ill., was at a thrift store Friday to buy decorations for her sister-in-law's room at a St. Louis hospice, where she is dying of pancreatic cancer.
When Santa gave her money, Burbank collapsed into his arms and wouldn't stop hugging him.
"God provides," she said. "This is real emotional for me."
For the secret Santas, it's not about keeping Stewart's memory alive as much as the meaning behind his legacy.
"It's not about the man, it's not about the money, it's about the message," the Kansas City Santa said. "Anyone can be a secret Santa with a kind word, gesture, a helping hand."
He said the money is given without judgment, but on the condition that the receiver pass along a kindness to someone else. Stewart began his holiday tradition at a restaurant in December 1979, after he had just been fired. He gave a waitress $20 and told her to keep the change and was struck by her gratitude.
Stewart also gave money to community causes in Kansas City and his hometown of Bruce, Miss.
The secret Santas want to expand their operation to every state, but so far only nine givers operate in Charlotte, N.C., Phoenix, St. Louis and Kansas City. They plan to start giving in Detroit this holiday season.

Ok so it's 11:38pm and I'm still wide awake... BUSTED! Of course you knew I'd be here! lol Of course I can't resist blogging in the middle of the night! And yes I'm just waiting idly for the sleeping pills to take effect! BLAH!
The poor wife could barely keep her head up and eyes open during her favorite show tonight...but by goodness she made it .... LOL! Now she is passed out behind me! Ahh the joys of being able to just fall asleep... I really really wish I could!
So...lets see... interesting things that happened to me today??? Nope not a one! Tomorrow is going to be filled with online shopping to get some things taken care of and wooohooo laundry! We have tons of bedding and rugs and clothes to do.. so you know we will be there a while! Oh joy! We also have to go get dog food and other house hold necesseties... fun fun...
I am happy to report that Daisy our baby girl is doing much much better. We stuck her in her crate tonight with her brother and lets hope that she is ok in the morning.. if not she will be sleeping with us again and I will be kicked out of my side of the bed! lol (and for those of you that are just now for the first time reading this wonderful blog... Daisy is a dog ... not a child!)
Gosh that's all I need are people coming here for the first time thinking I stick my child in a crate! lol Man the explanation I would have to give for that! LOL! So I was surfing blogs last night! Came accross this one blog that was talking about the reality of pregnancy and child birth.. And I couldn't resist being a smart ass in the comment I left on the page... I also made my own warning label up for people who want to get pregnant and their significant others....But that is for another post on a day when I have nothing else to write about! lol Well not to much to report!
So I tomorrow I might not be online to much becuz today is the wifes last day at work for the weekend so she will be home and conviently shoved up my ass until she goes back to work on Monday morning. YAY!!! No really I am happy that she will be home. LOL! Now just to find a way to keep her from that stupid X-box live for a day and we will be good! This is going to be a James Bond kinda mission I tell you... hmmm I can't exactly lay out detailed plans here on the blog as to what to do... (She does occasionally read it) HAHAHAHAHAH HI HONEY! LOVE YOU!
The dogs have been pretty good today... not to much to report there. HMMMMMMMM Lets see....OMG! You have to jump over to Ron's blog and read his new version of the 12 days of christmas... to funny! www.warpedmindofron.com
Let's seeeeee hmmmmmmmm man this sucks blogging in the middle of the day when nothing is happened yet and I'm not downing sleeping pills.... crap!
I fear the witty me only comes out to play in the wee hours of the night or like 5am! This is going to seriously have to change! Maybe I should down some sleeping pills now and see if it helps??? LOL So totally kidding!
Our weekend isn't going to be filled with to much fun and excitement. Last night we went to Walmart and spent close to $200 on food and other accessories so that we won't have to leave the house. The news was calling for snow here in Ohio...but ummmm I think Dick Goddard lied! (he is the weather man) I know that we have to go do MORE laundry tomorrow... Well I shouldn't say we... I should say I! But we have to go to the laundry mat to do it as we have tons of blankets and rugs and other fun stuff to do.

I hate decorating - toooo much time and effort into decorating something that is going to be taken down in a month
I hate shopping - I have always hated shopping. This is nothing new... and it seems around the holidays that people just get crazy and I'd really rather just sit at home than go to jail for knocking someone out who is getting on my nerves or just is standing to close (I like my space)
I really have no family - except for the wife. So what the heck do I need to celebrate a holiday for??? She already got her Christmas present from me... Yes and it was a month early!
But to let you in on a little secret... I do have my own holiday traditions...
Thanksgiving - I watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. I make my own Thanksgiving meal (turkey included) And I do it alone.. well not anymore...but I did!
Christmas - I watch the classics... The Grinch (not the fag one with Jim Carey) Rudolph, Frosty, Charlie Brown, and A Christmas story. And yet again make a feast. I do (did) all of these things alone and by myself!
Well now that the wife and I are together she can watch these with me in the years to come (I already made her watch the Grinch and Rudolph with me) and we can do these things together... The only thing that I am fighting with her on is having to go to her parents for Christmas... YUCK! I'm not big on traditional family things.. i.e. getting together for every one's birthday, having family get together... nothing.. Never had it in my life and have done quite well without it. But I do it as a support to her...So I will grin and bare it and go. I love my wife and will do anything to make her smile.!
So to all of you out there .... I am not totally a Grinch or a scrooge! LOL! Only half of me is! And don't go trying to change it! Like I told Tena and Georgie...I will fight you to the death! lol
But on to some other news...I found out today that I was awarded an award... YAY ME! Came as a total surprise... Since I only know of a handful of people who actually comment on this blog didn't think lots of you actually read it! lol So I must be doing something right!!! Kel from http://girlintheglasses.blogspot.com/ Said she loved my blog and gave me this beautiful award! I felt so privileged that my name was number one on her list!
So proud... Now I know there are some rules to this award....and I think that I have to find 7 others blogs that I love and tag them... That will come later as it is now midnight here in Ohio and I have some other things to report and a ton of emails to go thru since I was not online that much today... So you all should leave some comments or something proving to me that you deserve this award! LOL Just kidding... I have in mind the 7 people I will tag... But that will probably come tomorrow night when I'm up late and can't sleep like usual!
On another note we did a basket of laundry today...woooohooo one whole basket out of the 4 we have piled up! lol
But something kinda scary happened when we got home. Our poor little baby girl Daisy has had some eye thing going on and we have been keeping a close watch of it. Been wiping it down everyday with a warm washcloth. It seemed to be getting better...but for some reason today it was just really bad and to the point where she couldn't even open it! Well we get home let the dogs outside to do their business and poor daisy starts like dog yelling or dog crying...and scratching her eye and freaking out... So we started freaking out and called the vet and got her an emergency appointment.... Well turns out or baby somehow managed to perforate AND ulcerate her eyeball! So the vet gave us a pill to give her once a day and two different types of cream and told us that it could be 6 weeks before it heals properly! So the vet tells us to also make sure that she doesn't scratch at it anymore so that it doesn't get worse and for us to put something on her paws to ensure it! We also have to keep her away from the other two dogs to ensure that they don't scratch at it or make it worse as well. So we get her home from the vet wrap up her paws with gauze and tape and give her a pill as prescribed by the vet and some ointment and she just passes out.... All fine and dandy til she wakes up and pukes all over the couch! Well needless to say the wife almost got sick after the dog... So I had to clean it up! You should have seen it! The dog is puking and the wife is hanging over the kitchen sink just gagging! It was all kinda surreal and I just had to step back and thank my lucky starts that it doesn't bother me! So now the dog can't sleep in her crate for 6 weeks with her brother and he is going nuts in his cage becuz they have NEVER been separated! So I am awake watching Daisy like a hawk and listening to her poor brother whine becuz she is not in their crate with him!
Well that is my day in a nutshell!

Tena.......share the drugs with me already!!!! LOL! Just kidding
There really is nothing to report on my end of the spectrum... Our Monday was really really boring.... We didn't leave the house. Hell I didn't crawl out of bed til noon! And that my friend is very very very very rare of me! Usually I am the first one up and always the last one down...
The wife played X-box live pretty much all day. Minus the few times I came out from behind the computer screen to tell her to shut the damn thing off! LOL! We gave the kids (the dogs) their weekly medicated baths and that is about it.... OH SHIT... WAIT I LIED....
We did leave the house once.... We went to K-mart and got my caffine! The wife knows better than to let me run out of diet pepsi... I'm totally a bit*h when I don't have my morning fix of it! While some of you like your coffee to perk you up... I need Diet Pepsi! But other than that quick trip nothing happened and we did nothing ... I made dinner (beef stroganoff) and we watched wheel of fortune and jeopardy... God... now that I re read this we sound like we are in our 80's! OMG! We need to start going out more! lol
Well not to much left to say so I guess I should head to bed!
