I've Been Thinking.....

It is FRIGID in Ohio today.....so coupling that with my efforts to continue to be the loser that I am (weight that is).....has anyone tried sucking the fat from their thighs with a drinking straw....melting it down.....and using it for fuel oil to heat the house??????

I wonder (see me sitting in The Thinker pose)!!! :O)

I May Perhaps Have a Problem!!

This morning while working in "my room" I glanced out the window across the road and into the woods. I could see movement and looked closer to see if it was one of the many deer we have in the neighborhood or perhaps the turkeys we haven't seen for a while. Although I strained to see....I couldn't make it out.....because my window is sooooo filthy everything is viewed through a spotted filth film. I decided that I didn't really care what was in the woods.....and went back to work!!

On second thought.....nope.....no problem here....if the Good Lord wanted me to have clean windows....he'd send soapy rain!! :O)

Have a grand day looking out through your crystal clean windows!!

See......I Am ALWAYS Right!!

Rick came home for lunch......and it turns out it was something wonky with the gear shifty thing.....he explained it to me....however....it sounded like, "wah wa wa waw waaaaaaaah" soooooo.....I didn't really listen.....I did however understand that what it meant was......


I WAS NOT AT FAULT....... Aaaaaand.......HE OWES ME BIG!!!!!

And now......I really must go....thinking of something for him to make it up to me will take hours!!! Have a great afternoon!! :O)

Geesh......

So yesterday on my other blog.....I admitted that I am not a fan of Monday.....probably should have thought harder before ranting out loud in print.....'cause then this morning happened!!

Rick gets up at 5am for work....however Brady doesn't need to arise before 6:30a for school....being a loving and caring wife.....my roll in Rick's morning is...opening one eye when he kisses me goodbye!! However.....this morning.....in my deep sleep I hear Rick screaming gently explaining to me that when I took his truck last night to pick up Brady....I left the car door open.....and his battery was dead!! It didn't register what he was talking about.....why in the world would I leave his door open????? As it turns out.....the seat belt got jammed in the door and let it open enough to leave the interior lights turned on....killing the battery.....OOPS!!

Geesh.....what a way to wake up!! Poor guy....not only did he have no vehicle....but I drove him to work in a dazed and confused state!! Suddenly being late for work wasn't nearly as important to him as surviving the drive there!! :O)

So my lesson for the day boys and girls is......check the flippin' seat belt before shutting the door on your hubby's truck at 10pm on a work night....unless you want a warm and loving wake-up call in the morning!! :O)

Have a great day...Oh and sorry dear!!

Thank You House Party!!

As I showed before......I won a DiGiorno Pizza Party through the website House Party.....well yesterday was the day!! Because our family has been hit hard recently with the creeping crud (kleenex and sinus meds are still our best friends)....I really didn't plan a huge party.....instead....just invited the family in for a nice dinner while the guys watched the Ohio State game......


Go Bucks!!


Even though it was not a grand event we managed to have a really fun time chit chatting.....

.....and cheering.....


....yea!! We are quite the party animals.....no? tee hee hee!!

BUT......I've gotta say.....the food was amazing!! DiGiorno was sooooooo generous with the goodies they sent....and the coupons!! WOW!!



We purchased to serve.....

Pepperoni Pizza w/ breadsticks....and with chicken wings....which was the favorite!! The wings (I fixed them w/out the buffalo sauce) were wonderful!! Very meaty....boneless chunks with a great flavor!!

Supreme Hand-tossed Crust......was super loaded with toppings!! Sooooo good!!

Garlic Bread Pizza.....YUMMMMMMM!!!! So different....so flavorful.....and soooo gone!!

Four Cheese Pizza.....again.....oh sooooo good!!

I'd still like to try the stuffed crust pizza......and would love to find the duo box with the pizza and cookies.....the store I shopped at didn't carry them!! :O(


I've got to say.....Digiorno really is a great product!! It was super easy to prepare.....very quick.....and really wonderful tasting!! I paid $6.44 per pizza which is really a cheap meal....even when you add a salad you've got a great quick complete meal that everyone just gabbles up!! I normally haven't thought of keeping frozen pizzas in the freezer.....but will now for quick lunches or when Brady comes home with an army of hungry friends.....in just 20 minutes....I'll be super mom to the bunch!! :O)

So there you go......I highly recommend visiting House Party and trying for one of their many parties!! You won't be sorry!! :O)

Have a great afternoon!!

I'm Sorry!!

To anyone I may have misled.....I want to apologize!!

I've been having some arm pain.....and constantly smell of ben gay....and when some have asked about it.....I may have explained that I am a super hero....and hurt my arm while on duty....saving the planet from destruction. I now realize that that was wrong.....it was all true.....I am.....and I did....however....I now see that this may have sounded a bit boastful...and what I really should have said was I have arthritis in my elbow from stuffing dolls and using an electric sander.

I probably should also apologize to anyone whom I may have suggested that I am always 100% perfect........I do in fact have a couple hangnails......and a pimple on my chin....although these do NOT in any way take away from the fact that I am ALWAYS right when arguing with my husband!!

So.....I am very sorry if I have misled anyone!! Please.....accept my apologies!! Have a grand day.....all you rock stars on tour...a.k.a moms jamming down to the radio while going to the grocery store!!

Perception Vs. Reality

First off.....NO!!! I am NOT procrastinating.....how dare you suggest that I should be cleaning instead of blogging!!! I'll have you know my 1/2 mopped floor needs to dry.....see....don't you feel horrible for thinking I was avoiding cleaning by coming up with this hilarious post!!! I forgive you....besides..... this is a post that really must be written....right now.....because......ummm.....I hate to clean...I mean....I'm waiting for the floor to dry so that I can continue cleaning!! :O)

Perception is a funny thing!! In my head.....I am really an awesome person!! Okay....not in a "WOW...I'm great" kinda way....but I think I'm okay.....I'm okay with myself....I'm pleased with my abilities......until reality bites me in the ashes!! Let me share.....

Perception.....I sing like an angel.....



Reality.....I sound like an off key wolf....with laryngitis....who is trying to scare away the entire animal kingdom!!

BUT......I'm convinced that it is the fault of Pandora Radio.....and itunes.....and the regular radio.....and the tv.....they are not in key!! I can't possibly be that bad.....so it must be everyone else in the world....right!!


Perception......I gots the moves!!


Reality.....umm......yea....not so much!!


BUT......Pee Wee Herman!! Need I say more??????


Perception.....I am a really cool mom.....all the kids just love me and think of me as one of their own....in fact....I'm pretty sure they think I'm like 21!!


Reality....... ummmm.....I AM THE COOL MOM!!!! AND I'M HARDLY OVER 21....in fact I'm almost 21(21)!!! :O)

however....the other day one of Brady's friends asked me if I could remember the short shorts from the 80's......BRAT!!! She said it as if....1)how could anyone remember that long ago...and 2) she's a huge brat and Brady is NEVER, EVER, EVER allowed to talk to her ever again!! :O) It put a damper on my day.....until I made her get out of my van and refused to bring her home....then I felt better.....she won't be making that mistake again any time soon!!! LOL!! See.....I am the cool mom....just ask Brady's lil' friend!! :O)




Perception.....my house is (hold on let me stop giggling for a second)....okay.....my house sparkles and shines.....hardy har har!!!


Reality.....yea.....


BUT....guess what.....it's okay!! I'm cool with myself!! My family is cool with me!!

I can't sing like an angel but I bust loose with the vocals every time I'm alone....and I've only had the neighbors complain 4 or 5 times!!

Dancing with the Stars won't be calling anytime soon.....however...I'm not a star soooo......I'm okay with that too!! Me and Miss Opal get our groove on most mornings....and for a dog....she's pretty darn groovy!!

I'm the mom that gets called when they need rides to the speech tournys at the last minute.....it's our house that they all gravitate to.....and my kid is pretty darn fantastic soooo....I may not be the cool mom.....but I certainly am the most blessed!!

Soooo......there you go......this was soooooo worth avoiding cleaning for right!! And now I must get back to it......right after I check emails......and perhaps start dinner......and see what's up in my room....and......:O)

Have a great day no matter what your reality!! :O)

The Party is Here!!!

Over the last few years....I've been a huge fan of the couponing sites out there.....You can find such wonderful deals that really has helped me save quite a few grocery dollars each week!! In addition though....these sites have allowed us some fun opportunities!! One such site is House Party. Although I have applied for a few parties.....I recently won my first hosting!!!

UPS knocked on the door the other day and brought me this.....


I opened it.....

.....and found all kinds of goodies!!


....I think March 20th is gonna be a fun day at my House Party!!

Happy Wednesday friends!!

You All Failed.....Miserably!!

I am NOT old!! See.....that was a test!! I said, "could it be I'm old"......and the correct response was...."Oh h238ll no!! You aren't old at all Stacey....in fact you're still young....a spring chick in fact!!" See.......would that have been soooo hard!! Geesh......now.....I have a leaky bladder....I'm drinking too much water to make my bum shrink when in reality it's making my bladder shrink first....I'm coughing up a lung every minute and I'm pretty sure I only started out with 2......and now I'm depressed cause y'all agreed that I'm old!! :OP

Thanks a lot......and if the next time you look in the mirror and see 2 grey hairs sticking out of your nose.....don't call me!! :O)

Have a great Monday!! tee hee hee hee!!

Yea!!

Yesterday.....I was coughing so hard.....I peed my pants!! Does that mean I'm old.....I'm drinking too much water......or I need to hold it over Rick's head for eternity.....and make him pay BIG?????

These are the kinds of situations where you don't want to react toooo quickly!! It's soooo important to get it right so you don't waste an opportunity!! :O) In the words of the great Glenn Beck......"I'm a thinker" like that!!

Have a great Sunday!!

Yikes!!

Thank you for all the well wishes.....I'm back asking for a lil' prayer....we just got home from stat care and Rick has pneumonia and Influenza A!! He is VERY ill, and absolutely HATES being sick!! Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery.....and that he doesn't have to go to the hospital.....which isn't out of the question at this point!! Do you think it's wrong that I've tied him to the bed?????

Hope your day is as gorgeous as it is out today in Ohio!! :O) C'mon spring!!

Can a Wife.......

.....scrub her hubby down with bleach.....then spray him down with lysol.......then run him through the dishwasher on the sanitize setting.....if she does it in the most loving manner?

I'm just asking!! He's sick......and I'm tired of wearing my plastic bubble!! If he shares.......I think I need a huge diamond as payment don't you!! :O)

Have a great evening!!
