I No Longer Fit The Mold

Have you ever noticed how the people around you expect you to be a certain way? In other words, they want you to fit a mold. For a mom, it is the hardest part of her life.

For me it has become more and more of an issue. There is large part of me that has been pushed aside for many years for others. It isn’t any different for most moms I just chose to do something a lot of them don’t do. I started college after they were grown. I now have dreams that I did not think I would ever have the opportunity to experience. This seems to cause problems for those who want me to fit a mold.

To fit that mold would mean that I give up everything I want to do or experience because others have a plan for me. Don’t think I have regrets. I do not regret the path I have taken to this point. I would not have my kids and that would have been a horrible thing. My dilemma is simple. When do I start living my life the way I choose? I am, after all, a person with feelings and dreams. My dreams were put in a box for a very long time. They are not the same as they were 30 years ago, but they still involve experiencing new things.

I’m at a crossroad in my life and I need to make a decision. The decision could make or break me.

Did You Know I Am Memetastic?



The most fabulous Rockin' Mama has bestowed upon me The Memetastic Award. Who knew I was Memetastic? I am still in shock over that.

We must first pay homage to the one who began this sincerely sensational, smashingly superb award. That would be the one and only Yeah. Good Times.

Here are the rules:

1. You must proudly display the absolutely disgusting graphic for these purposes (put it in your post, you don't have to put it in your sidebar, I think that would seriously be asking too much).

2. You must list 5 things about yourself, and 4 of them must be bold-faced lies. Just make it up. Who cares anyway?

3. You must pass this award on to 5 bloggers.

4. This one isn't actually a rule, but once you do the above, please link up to the Memetastic Hop so that we can keep track of where this thing goes.

Here are my 5 things, 1 true and 4 lies.

1. I went skinny dipping late one night with a large group of kids.
2. I love sauerkraut.
3. I've had wild sex in a barn.
4. When I was 17, I had an affair with a 34 year old.
5. I used to do speed like it was candy.

Just try to figure out which is true and which is the lie.

Now to pass it on. Let's spread the love....

Ange at Names will not be changed

CB at Cigarettes & Stilletos

Diva at Drinks With The Diva

The fabulous Facing 50 With Humor

Cari at This Little Family

There you have it! Enjoy it and pass it on!

So hook up with me and J at Boobies, Babies, & A Blog for the most fun you'll ever have with your clothes on. Come on. I dare you. Here's my list.

There you have it. What fawks do you need to send flying?

WE'LL BE LIVE AT 12:00 CST!!!

Writer's Block and the Consequences

I’m beginning to think this is a serious disease that hits me when I don’t have much of a life outside of the three things that take my entire days away. You know, work, school, and internship. The last week and a half had the stomach flu and respiratory infection thrown in. It wasn’t too pleasant, but I survived.

I don’t know how many of you have worked in a call center before, but I have to tell you it is not just emotionally draining, it is physically draining. Most of us are on a phone all day and the vast majority of calls deal with complaints. By the end of your day, you are, most likely, mentally spent from trying to appease and keep customers. In addition, you are affected physically. Putting all your energy into trying to solve the customer’s issues causes most of us to be exhausted by the time we clock out. I think all this is affecting my writing.

Trying to think of anything to say that doesn’t pertain to work is exhausting in itself. So this is all I have. I shared the photo of the hair color change last weekend. What I didn’t do was share a photo with the “highlights” I attempted to do myself. I did not do it correctly as I am not a specialist in hair coloring. I’m not saying it’s bad, I’m saying it could have been better. This isn’t the best photo, but it does show the difference in coloring from the first post I made. Maybe I’ll be better at it next time. Right…………..

See, I’ve got nothing so you get my hair. What a post!

Now I'm Hilarious!


THE RULES:
And As a condition of accepting this award, some rules must be followed:

1. Link to the person who gave you this award (in a post, or in your sidebar, wherever you have this).

That would be The Professionally Insane "M" who is so smart, she recognized my funny bone.

2. Pass the award along to seven other people who post about at least slightly amusing things and tell them (by emailing them or commenting on a post, etc.).

I'm only going with a couple for now. I'll do another post about my funny buddies over the weekend. Just back off, I've been a bit overwhelmed.

Momma Fargo at The Boogie Man Is My Friend. Adventures of the popo in the Wild West. She tells some great ones.

Dazee at Crazy Daze & Nite Dreams What can I say? I think she has a great sense of humor and frequently has me laughing.

3. Say seven things about yourself that no one knows (or at least you think no one knows).

Seven may be too much info for everyone so here are the teasers. Again, another post to follow.

1. I am claustrophobic. I have been since I was very young.

2. I want to live in the Rockies. It is so bad, I am always looking at jobs clear up and down the mountain corridor. The only place I've ever felt at peace is there.

4. Pass these rules on.

There you go. Have some fun with it girls!

Tuesday Train

Photobucket



Yes, it is time for the train to depart the station. Join me and my co-host, This Little Family, for the ride of your life.

My week has been less than stellar. I was blessed with a triple whammy. Not only did I contract some sort of respiratory ailment, but I then contracted the stomach flu that me kept me down for what seems like forever. Then when I think I may see the light at the end of the tunnel....I find out that the little respiratory virus became a full blown infection requiring antibiotics. I was also blessed with a cough that will not go away. Needless to say, It's been one of those weeks. I'm thinking this week will be better. Don't you?

Now board the train and let's get moving!!!

And don't forget about Boobies and the Follow Me Back Tuesday hop. She's also my co-host for Fawk You Friday. You should check that out too. . It's a great way to vent your frustrations. Since she's so awesome you should hop over there now. Cause I said to that's why!

I'm Sizzling!



Oh yeah!!! Nanny at Naughty Mommy Reviews & Junk thinks I'm hot. Well she is too so I'm honored that she thinks I am too. She has great reviews of all the "toys" you will ever need. Trust me, you'll love going to her site. She sizzles way more than I do.

The rules are simple. Make a post with the badge and nominate 5 other sexy blogs. It's as easy as that. I think I can handle that. Ok so I will only award it to one blog. I've been sick. What do you expect? So here goes!

Rockin' Mama - I found her through one of the hops I do and let me tell you...She is smokin'!!! So check her out now. Cause I said so.

PS. The blogs don't have to be adult reviewing or oriented, but should be sexy or at least comfortable posting the button.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday



It's time for another edition of Scavenger Hunt Sunday with Ashley at Ramblings and Photos. I love this hop. It gives me an incentive to look at things a little differently. I just have fun with it and so should you.

Memories

My walls are filled with family photos. I would probably have them floor to ceiling if I could.



Silhouette

This was the best I could do. I haven't been feeling good so it's been a little difficult for me to get anywhere. This was taken at sunset from my front door.



Doorway(s)

This shot is looking down my hallway. Although it appears as though there are several doors, the last two are actually showing up in the floor to ceiling mirror at the end of that very short hall.



Reflection

The reflection is my front window against the painting in the back.



This is an archived photo. I took it at the end of October but it was part of several that I lost somewhere in cyberland. It is one of my favorites that is not a family shot. I just wanted to share. The clouds came out great.



Silver

I always love silver and red together.



And next week's list is.....

Texture (current Mortal Muses' prompt)
Fog (Exploring with a Camera prompt - linky open starting February 2nd.)
Button (PieniLintu's suggestion)
Beverage or Drink (PieniLintu's suggestion)
Seventies (PieniLintu's suggestion - could be interpreted as vintage 70's image/product, a person in their 70's or 70's processing)

What Is Marriage Supposed To Be?

The fact is, I don’t know. I’ve listened to all the opinions and read all the books about how it’s supposed to go, but I don’t think that’s the reality. My experience tells me that all men are basically selfish and they don’t really care how their wife feels. It doesn’t mean they are selfish with everyone.

Their kids are different. They will do things for their kids while they are telling their wives they don’t get anything. They don’t have to do anything for their wife and the reason they don’t have to is simple. It’s because they do everything else. What else do they do? Let’s look at that.

They run a snow blower for 30 minutes tops when it snows. When the car needs worked on, they will do that, but they will complain the whole time. They will happily let someone else put their car in the garage and help them fix it. They will complain if you don’t have food in the house while they come home after work and make sure the chair in the garage is kept warm by their heat coming off their derriere.

In exchange for all these “other things” they do, the wife is supposed to do all the cooking. If she works 40 hours a week it doesn’t matter. No one else is supposed to cook. If it isn’t something that can be thrown in the microwave or something that can be slapped between two pieces of bread, it is inedible and cannot be touched. It doesn’t matter that the wife gets home not long before the husband, she is still the only one expected to fix supper. After all, she owes it to him.

She will also do all the cleaning. This includes all the floors that everyone else walks on and she is responsible for the bathroom. Even if she is the only female in the house, she is also the only one who must clean the urine that ends up on the floor because others are too lazy to make sure they don’t dribble all over the floor in front of the toilet. It doesn’t matter that the wife must use the same toilet because the additional toilet that was supposed to be installed has not been done since moving into the house almost five years ago.

So let’s recap. If a wife works 40 hours a week, is trying to earn a degree, and is still trying to finish an internship, she owes the husband more. And, by the way, he must constantly remind her that she owes him because there is no possibility she could remember that every day. Going to work, blowing snow, and once in a while working on the wife’s car is MORE than enough to balance out the relationship.

This Is Me and My Hair



So do you see the stripe down the part in my hair? I'm done with the blond. Going back to brunette. I may even do some highlighting. I wonder if I can do it myself? Don't worry, I'll take another picture especially if I manage to give myself green hair.

And here is the updated photo! I'm still going to try highlights. Maybe I'll have green streaks. Who knows?

The Last Two Days

WARNING!!! GRAPHIC CONTENT!!! WEAK STOMACHS NEED TO STOP HERE!!!

My last two days have been miserable. It actually started on Wednesday night. The coughing started and would not let up. It was pretty miserable trying to sleep and I didn’t really succeed. The spells would come on very quickly and then I wouldn’t be able to go back to sleep. Then around 2 AM, another issue became very annoying.

I started vomiting like a volcano. It would not stop! Talk about a party that no one wants to attend. I sure didn’t want to be there. That continued until about noon. What a blast!!!

I even tried to go to work but when I got there, my supervisor thought I might not be the best for the phones. It is a call center and I would have to deal with customers while trying to keep my cookies down. The sup and I felt it was not worth it. So I turned around and went home.

I thought I was getting better on Thursday night. I was able to eat a couple of crackers and some toast. None of which came back up. I thought all was well until about 4 AM when the coughing returned. And that wasn’t all of it. I could not get warm. I mean all I did was shiver. I even had my heaviest and warmest comforter on and doubled and it wasn’t enough. I even had the heating pad on high and still no relief.

Then the stomach started all over again. For two and a half hours I was at it again. What a couple of days. Do you know what the worst part is? I got a flu shot for the first time in my life this year. FIRST EVER FLU SHOT AND I GET THE FLU!!! Obviously it was a different strain, but still. I received the message loud and clear. NO MORE WASTING MY MONEY ON A FLU SHOT!!!

At least this evening has been better. No stomach issues and the cough seems to have subsided as long as I don’t talk or lay down. Gee, I wonder how tonight will go?

What I Cannot Write About

As much as I would love to, I can’t write about my job. It wouldn’t matter if I was writing glowing reviews of the business or the people, someone would probably rat me out. Even though I am not dumb enough to use names or places, I am sure that someone would love to make me look bad. There is always one person who wants to make sure I’m not allowed to do it.

I am also not allowed to write about any personal issues these days. It would also cause me serious issues. It wouldn’t cause me to lose my job, but I’m not allowed to have any personal feelings that are written about.

Let me tell you about people who are stifled and not allowed to vent. They end up blowing sky high and it usually isn’t very pretty.

Why Is It Necessary?

We live by a set of train tracks that’s only used by a local company. The train runs mainly at night and for reasons of law, it is not allowed to toot the horn between 10 PM and 6 AM. All the neighbors had fits and the city made a law saying that because of the hours and the fact that I can outrun it, those hours are off limits to the horn. They can run the tracks, just not the horn.

Well for the last week and a half they have come through between 6 and 6:30 AM. That means they are required to use the horn. Here’s my question. How many people do you know that don’t work the hours that get them up at that hour? I know a few of them and I’ll be one of them once I finish the training I’m currently attending. I may have to explode.

Monday, January 17, 2011

Tuesday Train

Yes it's time again! The train will be departing the station at 8:00 PM Central so get your tickets ready for boarding. Join me and my co-host, This Little Family, for a great ride. Make sure you follow the hosts and try to follow others too. We all want to make new friends and that is how you do it. Come on! You know you want to.

Photobucket



Hope the last week has been good to you. Mine has been a bit hectic and I'm not sure when it will slow down. I guess we'll see how it goes. In the meantime, enjoy the ride and let me know how your day is going. I also want you to know I am sorry I haven't been able to get around to everyone. It has been rather difficult with the schedule I've had lately. I promise I will do my best to change this from now on.

And don't forget about Boobies and the Follow Me Back Tuesday hop. She's also my co-host for Fawk You Friday. You should check that out too. We will resume production of venting January 14, 2011. It's a great way to vent your frustrations. Since she's so awesome you should hop over there now. Cause I said to that's why!

I'm Stylish! Imagine That!



A most wonderful blogger, Firefly at Throwing Paint, has bestowed upon me a most wonderful award. It's the Stylish Blogger Award and I am going to do my best to live up to it.

Here are the rules to live by for accepting this award...

Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award...check...she's awesome.

Share 7 things about yourself

1. I have no patience for rudeness.
2. My secret obsession is anything that says Fossil.
3. I am the "Memory Keeper" for my family. I take more photos than all others combined.
4. I love going to Goodwill and Ebay.
5. I wish I had a partner who would do things for me because he wanted to. Right now I'd settle for just doing anything for me.
6. The tom boy in me will never die. Give me 4WD and a road that needs it.
7. I want to live alone.

Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.

I may cheat on this one a bit. I won't award this to 15. I'm awarding it to only one. I know, I'm breaking the rules. Just deal with it.

The recipient of this award is one of the best. She not only does reviews of toys, but she also has a blog where she writes. How versatile is that? She provides an all around service for all our wants and needs. Without further ado, her she is.....

Nanny Berry at Naughty Mommy Reviews & Junk


Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award! Done!

Respect Or Lack Thereof

Is anyone aware that I can control the universe? I’ve been told by others that I must control those around me. Of course, those around me expect me to control all the rest of the universe. Am I completely off my rocker or is it impossible for me to control the world around me? If there is something different, please tell me.

I would like to set some things straight. You see, there are things that others do to me that I do not do to anyone else. I am only human so once in a great while I slip with one of these, but it is only directed at those I feel deserve it and it is never to their face. It isn’t that I think I’m somehow better than them, but it just doesn’t do anyone any good and accomplishes nothing. That would be name calling.

Who does it help? If anything, all it does it anger and hurt the other person more than it’s worth. But, apparently, it’s okay to say things about me and to me that the people using these terms the same people would not take from me. What, do you ask, might that be? Let me tell you.

I have been accused of being lazy. I’ve been called an e--ing b---h. I’ve been accused of sitting around and just thinking up ways to be angry and cause problems. I have my head taken off because I don’t say the exact right thing and people always think the worst of me first. I beg to differ on what, or who, I am.

Let’s discuss the lazy idea. I had four kids. I was not the best housekeeper, but the kids were fed and they were happy. They joined all the activities they wanted to or we could afford, and some we couldn’t, and I helped with most of those. I was a Girl Scout leader, a Den Mother, a Cub Master, (yes), a Little League coach and Safety Officer. I have been the taxi driver for more activities than I listed above.

During all this time, I had a special needs little girl who required a lot of extra time and energy since she spent a lot of time at home from school because she couldn’t really handle a cold, let alone anything else big. Her energy levels made her very tired and unable to attend school all the time. In other words, she spent more time at home than most kids. It made it difficult to work, or shall I say keep a job, when you work for a couple of months then your daughter has to stay home for two weeks. Employers don’t care for that. Finding daycare for a special needs child is a completely different post. It is almost impossible.

The person who called me the name? Suffice it to say, I have NEVER called that person anything in the realm of a nasty name, but, I suppose it’s okay to do that to me. This person also likes to think the worst of me first and take my head off. I have never given this person any reason to think that as loyalty is extremely important to me. I guess I can’t change everyone’s mind.

Although I don’t have kids at home any more, I do have a lot going on. I work full time, am trying to finish an internship, and I’m in school for my Bachelor’s. None of this allows me to just do nothing, sit around on my butt and cause problems. People need to get over themselves.

The only reason this post came about is because I’ve had enough. I do not deserve what I get from others most of the time. I don’t disrespect them and I expect to not be disrespected. Enough is enough. If these people want to think that, let them. I won’t be around to hear it.

My Week

Have I ever told you how much other drivers irritate me? Well the last time I went to the store, almost no one was there. I was able to park fairly close to the front doors and since it was after work, I was really tired and thought this was great. That was until I came back outside.

I was putting my groceries in my car when another car pulled in. With all the other parking spaces open, they chose to park directly in front of mine. Really? So you force me to reverse when both of us could have just pulled away without trying to maneuver around monster piles of snow. Are you serious? Was that necessary? All I can say is you are extremely rude and I think it should happen to you because then you will understand. I guess I have such an electric personality that even my car exudes the come hither look. That would NOT be the case with you.

Which does not explain my more than mundane life. I now have to figure out how to work full time, fulfill my internship requirements, and do additional schoolwork. It is almost getting to be more than I can take. As I write this, I’m thinking I should be writing a paper for school, but I can only do so much. On top of going to school online, everything I do at work is on a computer. At work I’ve been going through training which has required several weeks of looking at a screen all day. It has become very tedious.

Some days I just feel old. I know, you're shocked and think I've lost my mind for even considering that prospect. Maybe you're right. Well I know you are. Why else you be reading this?

Guess What Is Back!!!

Yes folks! Fawk You Friday will be back tomorrow. My buddy, J at Boobies, Babies, & A Blog, has been under the radar for a while and for this week at least, we will be flying without her. It will be okay for now, but we know we need her back.

So here are the rules! They are fairly simple. Grab the button from either blog. If you don't want to use that button, use one of ours. We welcome that too. Not everyone wants to see the finger flying and we understand that. After you get a button, just let us know what ticked you off or irritated you. I know a few of you have some saved from over the holidays. I know I do. Just let the fawks fly. See you there!

Happy Birthday Baby Girl!

 myspace graphic comments


You would be 23 today. How odd that sounds since you were such a tiny girl. You are missed more than anyone will know because your smile alone would make even the hardest of hearts melt. Anyone who knew you was positively affected by you and made better by that connection. You were an exceptional human being who made life wonderful just by your mere presence.

You still surround me with your love and with your memories. I know you are the sunshine in my hair, the shadow on the ground, the whisper in the wind. You are never far from me.

"For we loved an angel, unaware."

MAKE SURE YOU READ THE RULES BEFORE LINKING UP. THE BUTTON MUST BE ON A POST OR ON YOUR SIDEBAR OR YOU WILL BE DELETED FROM THE HOP.

Yes it's time again! The train will be departing the station at 8:00 PM Central so get your tickets ready for boarding. Join me and my co-host, This Little Family, for a great ride. Make sure you follow the hosts and try to follow others too. We all want to make new friends and that is how you do it. Come on! You know you want to.

As we begin the ride, I am trying to activate my new phone. Yes, I finally have one!!! It's the HTC EVO 4G. I just love Android. So, I hope it doesn't take forever. I have things to do. Hope you all enjoy the ride!

And don't forget about Boobies and the Follow Me Back Tuesday hop. She's also my co-host for Fawk You Friday. You should check that out too. We will resume production of venting January 14, 2011. It's a great way to vent your frustrations. Since she's so awesome you should hop over there now. Cause I said to that's why!
