I'm greatful for:

All in no particular order:

1. My kids! (though sometimes I just want them to look pretty and hit their mute button, but I
still can't find it!!!)

2. The dude in my life, yeah you know who you are. You have the luxury of laying next to this gorgeous beast every night and pretend you don't notice the puffy eyes in the morning, or any sort of ummm, gas exchange that may or MAY NOT occur in the middle of the night.

3. I'm also glad that I may have passed the semester, though I'm still keeping my fingers crossed as I admit I may have not put in all of my soul into my work, I will settle for a B average (I'm more of a 3.5-3.8 type of gal but ehh B will do nicely this time.)

4. I'm grateful that I have a core of fucking great friends, that accept me regardless of me neurotic symptoms.

5. I'm thankful for the $7.86 in my bank account that is left after all is said and done this month. (Starbucks, see you tomorrow! I can totally score a venti macchiato!)

6. I'm ever so thankful that I ONLY gained back 20 pounds of the 57 pounds I lost last year, trust me it could have been way worse with the amounts of coco puffs I consumed (shit, what the hell!!!)

7. I'm thankful that I can write this blog in a country that lets me post this shit up without fear of censorship, or fear of getting my head cut off, my fingers mutilated, or my eyes gouged out for having an opinion about gratitute, living out of wed lock, drinking, oh yes I'm greatful for that too. (though honestly women still have a way to go in the workplace...just sayin)

8. I'm greatful for all the little things that I don't think about/worry about on a regular basis like changing the batteries in the remote or kids toys (except the ones with the little screws DAMN I hate those, thanks my dude for taking care of those) and like electricity and laundry and like silly stuff that people in other countries struggle for, I feel blessed. Wow maybe I'm not that shallow after all... oh damn I chipped my nail!

So it's still a damn cat!

So about two weeks ago this stray cat peers through the double french doors in our living room. Me, like the animal lover that I am (though note I HATE, ((maybe even despise?)) cats, they think they are superior to humans, you know )I slowly open one of the doors and ever so slowly does this ugly grayish, dusty fur ball come in. I'm thinking it's still a younger cat maybe a kitten given it's small size. I warm up some milk and give it to it, that thing slurped it up so fast! My kids then woke up and this creature hid and as soon as I opened the door it fled.

Well at the end of dinner guess who was back peering its little beady eyes through the kitchen door? Yup the damn cat, this time my dude opens the door and feeds it.

Long story short, the damn cat has SOMEHOW managed to find a home. Oh and after a bath turns out its more white than grey. It is actually a she, although we haven't formally named her, we've decided on Kitty or Thumper or October. She's very sweet, playful, clean and loving. But damn! It's a damn cat...but maybe I'll make an exception for this one cute adorable cat.

A broken heart

I just got back from dropping off my son at school. I've noticed for the past few weeks Morgan's mommy hasn't been there. Morgan's mommy was nice, quiet and dared to somewhat befriend this beast of a not a morning person. We would talk about how awful our kids' teacher is and how we should change them. Well a few weeks ago I didn't see Morgan or her mommy so I thought she did just that.

Today I saw Morgan and asked her how her mommy was. Her big blue eyes revealed her broken heart right in front of me. I didn't want her to say anything more. Her little lips trembled and out came the mommy died. Her face flat. What? I asked her, realizing I asked her to say those words again I quickly interrupted and said I was very sorry. What else can I say to a five year old little person who has undergone such tragedy?
I swept her hair away from her frozen face smiled and stepped back.

I looked at my son to see if he heard but he seemed oblivious. My heart is heavy and I wish I could take some of the heaviness away from Morgan.

Housewives Reunion and more!

I'm so excited and can't hardly wait for Thursday to get here! My good friend Shannie is hosting an Atlanta Housewives reunion and Real Housewives of Orange County Season 5 party!!! I'm so looking forward to it, we're both huge OC fans. I really didn't care for the Atlanta group until I found stuff in common with Kim out of all people! Yeah the girl's got issues but really who doesn't? So my girl Shannie is fixing herself up like Gretchen from the OC and I will somehow dress up like Kim...I'll take pics.

(Gretchen from OC)

The only thing is that she's making this vodka, cranberry, sugar I volunteered to bring the needs to be something sinful and delicious. So now I'm thinking, thinking, thinking of what to make (bake?) for our event...suggestions are most welcome! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!! Don't be tardy for the party oh oh oh ~~~

My diet is progressing slowly...very slowly...has it progressed? I'm giving up soda, I'm sitting here literally drinking the last coke in the house. This includes the diet stuff too. Making my kids give it up as well. I plan to decrease my chocolate intake. Notice I don't plan to give it up entirely, that would be insane! Also, I guess I will start going to Curves again...though it does get a little boring, it worked before.

So here it is in front of all of my three readers (thank you by the way!) and anyone who happens to stumble onto this blahhhg. (Stepping on the scale) I want to decrease 31 pounds all by the last days of January is this possible? I don't know, probably not, but it helps to have a goal in mind. DANG, why is this turning into a weight loss blog?
