The Creation of Mothers . . .

While the Good Lord was creating mothers, He was well into his sixth day of overtime. Then an angel appeared and said, "You're doing a lot of fiddling around on this one!"
And the Lord said, "Have you read the specifications of this order? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic...Have 180 movable parts, all replaceable...Run on black coffee and leftovers...have a lap that disappears when she stands up...and a kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to a disappointed love affair. Plus she has to have six pairs of hands!"
The angel shook her head slowly and said, "Six pairs of hands!!?? Not possible!"
"Oh, its not the hands that are causing Me the problem," said the Lord. "It's the three pairs of eyes that mothers have to have."
"That's on the standard model?" asked the angel.
The Lord nodded. "One pair that sees through closed doors when she asks, 'What are you kids doing in there?' when she already knows...Another here in the back of her head that sees what she shouldn't, but what she has to know...And of course, the ones here in front that can look at a child and reflect, 'I understand, and I love you' without so much as saying a word." "Lord," said the angel touching His sleeve gently, "Get some rest. Finish this tomorrow."
My mom had oral surgery today, hope she has a speedy recovery.
Love you mom, you're the best!

Yep, that's me! Remember the little Twit from a couple of posts back? Yeah, I know you do. If you don't go read that first or this won't make much sense....
(No I will not link to it because I am far too lazy.)
Well, you know the old saying,"What goes around, comes around." Well I find a sort of terrible joy in the fact that this little Twit broke her leg this weekend. Babygirl reported that she came to school sporting a cast and crutches. I guess Babygirl was right.
I should listen to her more often.

It's Monday and I have somehow dragged my sorry tired ass out of bed to get here to work and be completely useless today. I have no idea why I'm tired, I just am. The muscles in my neck are screaming at me. I don't feel sick (as in no sore throat or stomach issues) so I really have no excuse.
I played Bunco with the neighborhood ladies yesterday and I won a prize for being the biggest loser, LOL! Yep, out of 3 rounds I had the most losses 15 out of 21. That's O.K. I got a nice new watch out of the deal. It is my turn to host the next round so I am hosting it at someone else's house *heehee*.... Nope I am not opening up my house to 11 people I barely know. I do have to pick out the prizes though and I want them to be outstanding. Yeah good luck with that, huh? Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

Oh and can you all send some love to my pal Tysgirl, she has been feeling like,"Shit on a Stick" lately.

She has had a little girl (Lets call her Twit, shall we?) bullying her at school. Since she started in the new school district the beginning of 5th grade this little Twit has bothered her and teased her, etc. Well, now the little Twit has taken it to a whole new level and has started calling my baby a slut and a ho. *heavy sigh* I lend my shoulder for my daughter to lean on and my ear to be her sounding board. I give her advise when she asks for it but I refuse to interfere unless she asks me to. It just kills me inside. I want (SO BAD) to go over there and pop the little Twit upside her ugly little mean-girl pin head.
But I refrain because
#1. I don't want to go to jail.
#2. my daughter needs to fight her own battles.
#3. It would just make things worse for her.
I told her that I totally would bail her out of the front office if she were to do it herself. Yep, that is such good parenting on my part huh? I didn't say I was proud of myself...
So do you know what my sweet wonderful kind loving child said to me????
Do ya?!?!

*this makes me feel like the biggest puke in the world*

She said,"Mama she is so jealous of me she just can't stand herself. Her mother is a drug addict that doesn't live with her. She lives with her father and he doesn't love her. He just buys her lots of stuff instead of spending time with her. I feel sorry for her. I have a family that loves me and buys me what I need when I need it. My friends are my friends because they understand me, not because I give them stuff. She only has friends because she gives them things, not because they like her. She will figure it out one day and she will be very sorry."
So, am I the worst mother for suggesting that my sweet little Babygirl beat the crap out of this awful little Twit?
I guess so.

Last week was payday week and the little troll that hands out the paychecks handed them out on Thursday instead of Friday so I took Friday off.... Yep, I got paid and ditched! No, they will take it out of this pay period, but it felt good nonetheless. Babygirl has been sick since the 8th. Thank goodness she is starting to feel better. She missed a week of school. Lucky for her they had one day off and two 1/2 days. Today they are home sleeping and doing absolutely nothing. I wish I were there with them. We had friends come up for the weekend and it was nice to see them. I went to a birthday party for a friend's 1 year old. Good party, good food and really nice people.
The Hubby put up new shelving in the walk in and for some odd reason he put a really heavy box of "????Lordknowswhat" on the top shelf and last night when we were sitting in the living room we heard KA-BOOM!!!! Yep that was the shelf crashing down clothes and all... That's O.K. he will have to fix it one day, it was his side of the closet *heehee*
Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

Just ONE Question...

Do I look like a big.....fat......huge...ENORMOUS person to you? Tysgirl has seen me in real life so she can answer this one with all honesty. I know that I can stand to lose maybe 30-35 pounds but I wouldn't call myself a TWO TON TESS!!! But alas it is the time when everyone is thinking about bathing suits and shorts and such awful attire. My very dear friend T-Mom has roped me in to;

Either go to Weight Watchers with her or join karate (the same class as the hubby). I don't want to do either!!! I am fine just like I am. My clothes fit and I am healthy. So I took the lesser of the evils soooo I am going to go to Weight Watchers (UGH-ICK-SIGH-POO! &^$%@*!)

On a side note we (or should I say the hubby) painted the LR a nice medium tan color and has trimmed it in white. When it's finished I will post some pics because it is going to be freaking beautiful! He still has some more crown molding to go up...

It's Friday and I am so glad that the weekend is here! I need to clean but you know what? I don't want to so I'm not!
Hubby is putting new crown molding up in the (freshly painted) living room. Can't wait, it is gonna be awesome! Saturday I am going to hang with a friend of my daughter's mother.... yeah think that one through for a minute.
Hope you all have an awesome weekend!

Let me make this clear, I do not and will not talk politics on this blog EVER.
I just wanted to let you all know that I voted yesterday.
I did my duty and I hope you all did too.

This is a pic that my niece sent to me from WAY BACK in the day... Look how thin I was and look at how young the kids were. This is when I fell in love with them.

I had a good weekend. My daughter made the school soccer team. This is the first school sports team that either of my kids have joined. Very cool! She is in the 6th grade and I'm a little surprised she made the cut. Not because she is a bad player (far from it) she is only in the 6th grade. I heard that they didn't let the 6th graders on the team unless they were good. Looks like she's good! We had dinner at a friend's house Saturday night and went shopping all day on Sunday. So all in all it was a very good weekend.

Oh and my dad is a HUGE Giant's fan so he is very happy, YaY!
Hope everyone has a good Monday!
