I have been neglecting this thing for a very long time now. Put simply, life has gotten in the way.

I have been stressed out by so many little things, my brain just doesn’t know what to do with itself anymore.  I am supposed to be a human calendar remembering not only my own stuff, but everyone else’s too.  To-Do Lists are literally shooting out my ass, I have so many going on in multiple places so I don’t forget and guess what?  I FORGET!  My days would be much more productive and less complicated if I would be allowed an hour of silence to I can organize my brain.

Will that ever happen?  Doubtful, but I continue to be optimistic, as hard as it might be and try my best to make it so.

Another huge stressor is no one but me knows how to clean and tidy up.  I am constantly “reminding” the males in this house to clean up after themselves and to stop leaving crap all over the place thinking I will get sick of seeing it there and clean it myself.  That and the inability to lend a helping hand around the house with other things.  I am beyond tired of watching all 3 of them kick things out of their way or jam it in a shelf thinking it’s all good and put away.  So in the end, naturally I’m the one doing it all anyway.

So, what’s a girl to do?  Curl up into a ball and have a much needed meltdown.  Since my voice has become nothing more than a whisper in a crowded room, it feels as though I have no other option.

Whoopsy Daisy!

So, what do you know? It’s the return of the slacker. So sorry for those few of you that actually take the time to read this thing. I have been in a blogging slump. I have lots to say, it’s just that those words don’t leave my brain and make it to my fingertips for me to type them out.

However, while in one slump I came out of another. I am finally being creative again with my card making and crafts, so that’s a bonus. It’s just finding the time to sit down for a bit to get those creative juices flowing. Between the hubby, kids, constant noise and the voices chattering in my head… I’m surprised I still have hair. My sanity on the other hand is still in question. It’s just really hard to think when there is constant noise.

I am also sooooo behind with commenting on other blogs. Just so you know, I do peek at them and I have things to say. I will do my best to get caught up with everyone.

I just thought I’d pop in and say HI! I also want to let you know that there will be a guest blogger playing on here every now and then as well. I will let her introduce herself.

Until then, I hope everyone has a great day!


P.S. I want to wish my Dad (who doesn’t read this) a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! xoxo

Set Adrift On Memory Bliss

I was at my parents house last night and was going through a few boxes that I hadn’t brought with me when I moved out.  It was sure something else taking that walk down memory lane.  A place I haven’t been to in over 15 years.

During my ‘walk’, I came across a box FILLED with notes and letters my friends had written to me.  We used to write back and forth to each other in class and slip them into each other’s lockers, bags, etc.  We wrote about many topics, including the boys we liked, the stuff we did when we weren’t together, our broken hearts, our happy moments and the troubles in our day to day lives.

I haven’t had the chance to go through all of them yet, as it will literally take me weeks, if not months to dent the hundreds of pieces of paper, some in a 3″ binder and the others folded into tiny squares (you remember those fun forms of origami we all used to compact the notes?).  However, I did skim through a few and let me tell you, it’s going to be interesting!  It’s too bad I don’t have the letters I wrote to them.  I wonder if they still have those letters?

This trip back to junior high and high school should be something.  Hopefully I can find some juicy, 15+ year old gossip to share!

I receive daily e-mails from and I get to learn a new word each and every day.  Now, whether or not I choose to use my new words are another thing, but there are days like today where I get this overwhelming need to be a geek and put these newly found gems into silly sentences.

As I am sitting on chat with my cousin and fellow rock star blogger,Hules, I am torturing her with my sempiternal insanity.  Telling her that I am a chimera in disguise who needs to abrogate the liquid from my bladder (which I still need to do, by the way).  I tend to be full of excrescence thoughts and ideas and they have a bad habit of keeping me awake at night and cause me to do things like blog a ridiculous post like this one.  I like to gambol around the room, but on most days, that ends quickly as I tend to be quite galumph by nature.

As I look through all of these words, I wonder.  Who really uses these words on a daily basis?  Naturally, Hules pipes up and says she does, so I tell her she’s being mendacious.  Seriously people, who actually talks like this?  I have to admit, this is just a bunch of flummery on my part.  I do things like this with regular, everyday words.  I find at times that if I look at a word for too long, it starts to look funny to me and doesn’t seem to look right.  Does this ever happen to you?  Simple words like restaurant, or vacuum tend to look weird when you stare at them for too long.  Maybe it’s just me.

On that note, I am off to go play with my doppelganger!

Oh, and this is for those of you wondering what solecism means.

Girl Crush

I know I’m not the only one out there who has a crush on someone of the same sex.  Well, I happen to have two.  Ellen Degeneres and Katherine Moennig, who plays Shane McCutcheon on the L word.  

What I love about Ellen is she’s so down to earth and isn’t afraid to be herself.  She is beautiful both inside and out and you can see that in her eyes.  I love the way she dresses and carries herself and her sense of humor is something I can have in my life on a daily basis.  That is something I find sexy in anyone!

I don’t know what it is about Shane, but HOLY CRAP!  I tell ya, if she were to ever come up to me on the street and even show a remote interest in me, I’d fall right over.  I know for sure it’s her face and her voice.  That girl oozes sex wherever she goes.  She can stand to put a little more meat on her bones, but other than that I wouldn’t throw her away.

My cousin and I were talking earlier and I asked her if there was a way to combine the two of them and make them one because if I had to choose, I wouldn’t be able to.  She said that’s what threesomes are for!

I can say this much.  With all the crap I’ve had to deal with when dating men in the past, if anything were to happen to my marriage, I would call it quits.  I will not get married again as I believe it’s a one time deal and shouldn’t be taken lightly.  I think that if I were to ever date again, it certainly won’t be with another man!  Done.  Finished.

With that being said, does that make me Gay?  Bi?  Straight?  Does it really matter?  I am still me, right?

I truly believe that if you are happy, in love and are loved, then it really doesn’t matter who it is that makes you feel that way.  Another man, another woman…As long as you are happy, that should be all that matters.

If only it were that simple.

I Smell A Lawsuit!

They say Cheese Whiz adds personality.  Well, I’ve been consuming the stuff for years and NOTHING!

I want my money back!  I want compensation for all the years of believing a lie!

I need a hug!
