Is this a different form of Re Gifting?

This is the look on Cheyenne's face two years ago when she got a cell phone for Christmas. Unfortunately, the phone didn't stay her's long. She would call my sister at 1am and for some reason, I felt the need to carry two phones on me at all times. Then Child Husband took the phone. Well, she needs a phone. We don't have a house phone, so this year she is getting a cell phone again. Only it isn't a new phone, it is one I have had around, but it hasn't been used much. I'm going to decorate it with some bling, so it looks cool.

I'm wondering if she will have that same look on her face. Or will it be a shrug and a bland "Gee thanks Mom"

How does one live to be 100?

On my weekend getaway last weekend. I went to a birthday party for a woman I went to church with all my life growing up. Dathea is one of the nicest people you would ever meet. Very sweet, polite and always very well dressed. She is 100 years old now. Many people ask how she has lived such a long life. I have never asked, as I have it figured out.

She NEVER Married or had KIDS!

That's how you live to be 100!

I'm lucky to have made it to 40.

Friday Fragments?


On Monday, Mercede's teacher called me because she wondered why Mercede was saying "I'm going to go home and smoke cigarettes." over and over... Hmmmmmmmm WHY could that be????

What do you get when you cross some electrical cords, electrical tape, Styrofoam cooler and a thermostat?

I'm not sure, but I will let you know when ,MacGyver Child Husband gets done with it. As long as it doesn't end up like his project with the pvc piping, flashlights and mini cam.

Cheyenne probably feels negleted that I don't post about her much. But that is cause she is the "good" one. Except for 6 days out of each month.

The 18th was my son Christopher's 25th Birthday. I haven't seen him in over 2 1/2 years. He lives in Ohio with his birth mom. My girls and I miss him and need to make a road trip to see him.

Yesterday I stopped by the Pennies in My Pocket blog and bought $150 worth of certificates to some great restaurants for only $12 dollars. That sale ended yesterday and I almost missed it because I stopped by her blog so late. I've got to remember to hit this blog early everyday cause I'm going to be eating good the next two months :)
UPDATE: Sale on gift certificates now ends on Monday.

I lost three pounds last week, but then Child Husband brought home Krispie Creme donuts and I ate 5 of them in 12 hours.

Please don't tell my peeps at


Today, Friday, Mercede came home from school with this shirt, I think her teacher is trying to make a point!


I think tomorrow, I should get rid of my puking pumpkin. I don't think he will be with us by Thanksgiving. What do you think?

What to do with Child Husband!

Yesterday I headed upstairs for a meeting. If you haven't read my blog long and are confused about the "upstairs" statement. Let me explain. I'm a Home Coordinator for an organization that provides supports to adults with disabilities. I also happen to be the live-in staff, which means I do overnights from Sunday to Thursday (I have Friday and Saturday nights off, as long as my weekend relief staff isn't on vacation). It is a large home, and my family and I live in the bottom and the individuals live upstairs. I have two staff at all times(during the day) that assist with the three people that live upstairs. Anywho, yesterday I was typing up some paperwork and had to run upstairs for a meeting. I told Child Husband not to let the kids near one section of our apartment, because I had the work laptop on the floor. I was in the meeting with my supervisor and a case manager from the regional center, when the phone rang upstairs. One of my staff answered it and handed it to me. Child husband was on the phone and says "I don't know who this lap top belongs to, but I just stepped on it and broke it." I hung up and sat there stunned and with tears brimming in my eye's. How was I going to pay for this lap top. The case manager asked me if I needed time to compose myself "I told her I didn't" But I did. I then ran down stairs, only to find out.......................

That it was a JOKE!

Oh yes.......... I was so mad at Child Husband. He told me he didn't realize I was in a meeting. I said "What part of "I got to run upstairs for a meeting" did you not get?"

Anywho, since this is my 100th post, really was my 101 post but I deleted one so it could be my 100th and I told you I was going to give away Child Husband.

Instead of having you comment to see who wins him. I have already done the honors of picking out someone whom I think he will be perfect for.

I have called this woman a "skank" and I was a little worried about the word, since I wasn't for sure about the meaning. I didn't want to be using a very fowl word, so I had to look "Skank" up.

I found this definition for it that fits her to a T.

Skank is a term for a person who may be repugnant for reasons of hygiene.

Yesterday on her blog she posted this post about her odor, she also must of guessed I was going to refer to this post, since she made it easier for you to access the descriptive events that lead up to her needing to carry Lysol in her purse

Today Skank Heather won George Clooney. Now, I know that NikkiCrumpet was afraid that if she didn't rig her contest by rubbing raw meat on the Skank Heather dog biscuit (confused? Then go here), that Skank Heather would stalk her and leave her "repugnant" imprints upon the lovely home of Mrs. Crumpet.

I do want to thank those of you who backed me up against the Evil Skank. Kari and Heathersister, you gave it your all and I thank you. Sometimes it may seem that evil prevails, but in the end The Good triump!

So Odorous, Skanky Heather, winner of my George Clooney photo, here is your prize from my 100th post giveaway.


Care Instruction: He likes to sleep til noon, eat only fried meat that comes out of a window, and perfers to sit or sleep on sofa at all times while in a home invironment. He likes to be watered frequently with Kool-ade, Gatorade and Pepsi. He perfers to spend all his wake hours playing War Of Warcraft and communicating with other tecno nerds. If he seems aggitated or bored, a broken TV, video camera or computor may be placed in front of him for short periods. If you are needing to distract him for longer periods, you may put an XBox, Playstation or Smart phone in from of him to modify. Please be sure to leave him a meat strainer, duct tape and a soder iron for these larger projects. Important to remember: He gets sick easily and you must have ready at all times a vocabulary of "Poor baby, what can I do to for you?" phrases available to assist him thru his "I'm so sick and can't take care of the kids" days:)

My BAD Girl, Mercede

Remember this photo of Mercede from August, with the cigarette package she had found?

Well, Mercede has this thing for people in wheelchairs and also people on oxygen. She is drawn to them and always has to talk to them. I think she is a wheelchair magnet since I have always worked with people in wheelchairs. The oxygen thing, probably because she has been on it quite a few times.

Anywho, we were in Wal-Fart yesterday and an elderly lady in a motorized scooter and on oxygen, passes by us. Of course Mercede has to go up to her and ask her about her O2. The lady says "You know how I got on this oxygen? Smoking! Your not going to smoke are you?"

Course Mercede responds with, "Yeah, I'm going to SMOKE!"

Would you rather.... (Hosted By Tattooed MiniVan Mamma)

Tattooed Mini Van Mama has let a bunch of us ask "Would you rather?" questions, and now we get to link up and answer them. Please DO NOT read this is you are easily grossed out or easily offended.

1. Kat wants to know: Would you rather eat a cockroach or a bull nut?

Those of you that have been reading my blog since July, know the answer to that....

Bull Nuts are tasty, to see my family(yes my kids also) eating them, go here

2. Brandy wonders: Would you rather not shower for a month or not brush your teeth for a month?

I go a month without brushing my teeth anyway, so that was easy ;)

3. April asks: Would you rather....have to have sex everyday for a year straight or go six months without it?

I could easily go 6 months without! But everyday, I would loose some weight. But this is about what I would rather do. So NO to sex.

4. Ashley wants to know all kinds of good stuff: Would you rather find true love or 1 million dollars?

Why a million dollars because then I could buy true love ;)

5. Would you rather always have to say everything on your mind or never speak again?

Anyone that knows me well, knows the answer to this. Cause having ADHD makes me say everything on my mind, pretty much.

6. Would you rather know it all or have it all?

Easy, if I knew it all, I would have it all. So know it all!

7. Katie wonders: Would you rather have extremely bad tourettes or uncontrollable orgasms?

Neither, because it would almost be the same.

8. Would you rather skip Christmas for a year or skip your birthday for a year?

Birthday for sure.

9. Heather asks: Would you rather be followed by a cloud of dust or a cloud of gnats?

Yikes, this is a hard one. I would say the gnats, cause you could kill them off, not sure how I would get rid of the dust.

10. Michelle wants to gross you out: Would you rather eat a toenail omelet or a hair sandwich?

Well, since I have already eaten hair in stuff, the hair sandwich. Mercede would really love that, since she has this pica thing with hair and fuss.

11. Would you rather lick the discharge from a cats eye or lick the dried spit from the corner of a teachers mouth?

Ok, this is very nasty. But the second one, I would take. It would even make it easier if it was a good looking male teacher ;)

12. Jennifer wants to know: Would you rather have dinner with the Obamas or go on a date wiith George Clooney?

Gee, I don't know, that is such a hard one. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....

Well George for sure.

13. and as an after thought she wanted to know...Would you rather be paralyzed or blind?

Neither, I don't want to answer this one as their are many in this world facing one of these disabilities and it just seems like something, I shouldn't comment on.

14. Jo-Jo said: Would you rather blog or sleep?

Blog of course.

15. G from Where's My Angels (that's me): Would you rather take a cheese grater to your sunburned back, or pour alcohol in a new hole in your toe:)

(I liked Tattooed Mini Van's answer, so I am taking it for my own)

Alcohol on my toe. But I'd take a swig first. And again after. Til the bottle was empty.

16. Yaya: Would you rather use the woods or a port-o-potty? (her hubby came up w/ that one!)

Porta Potty, cause I can't sqwat, I need something to sit on.

17. Jamie: Would you rather walk across hot coals or drive a nail through your foot?

Nail thru the foot would take less time to heal.

18. Magpie: Would you rather have city street water splash on your bare feet (ew ew ew) or lick a shovel from a horse barn?

Water splashed on my feet. I've had worst things splashed on my feet.

19. Heather: Would you rather join a charlie horse orgy or take ten four-year-olds on a field trip to some ancient Indian burial grounds? (Hit the charlie horse orgy link, read the post and my comment for explanation if you're wondering. So much work today!)

(Again, I liked Tatoos answer so I am keeping it as mine)

The 4 year olds. Cause you can't lock a charlie horse up in a cage.

20. AngieDe:Would you rather have to go pee ALL the time, or have to go pee really bad but never be able to go?

Again, anyone that knows me, knows the answer to this. Pee all the time, I do it anyway.

21. Would you rather drown in Coke or Pepsi?

Diet Pepsi, cause I don't want to get fatter doing it!! ha ha

22. Would you rather eat a bar of soap or drink a bottle of dish washing liquid?

We could ask Cheyenne about this one. She has eaten a bar of soap before. I asked her to wash her mouth out with soap after she said some bad words. Next thing I know she is eating it! lol I'm so with bar of soap.

23. Would you rather be stranded on an island alone or with someone you hate?

With someone I HATE, cause then I could always torture them for some entertainment.

24. Angela: Would you rather papercut your eyeball or step on a nail?

The eyeball one

25. Black Betty asks: Would you rather receive a golden shower or a roman shower?

I had to look one of them up and finding out the roman shower was puking, I have been puked on a million times by my kids, well, thinking about it, I have been peed on by my kids also. Now yes, they don't mean by your kids, but they are both equally nasty, so I will stay undecided.

26. Cyndy, a fellow Dysfunctional Mom wonders: Would you rather lick a frog or drink rusty water?

What, has not everyone licked a frog? Course it was fried at the time, but yum!

27. Live.Love.Eat asks a very thought provoking question: As a blogger, would you rather be famous like Dooce and too busy to really connect with bloggers, or not so famous and have connections?

Well that would be easy. If I could earn a living like Dooce does sitting on my rear blogging, then yep that would be it! (I could always have a second blog where I connected with people using another name)

28. Hula: Would you rather live without water or electricity?

You could't live with out water, you would DIE!

29. Captain: Would you rather shave your head with a cheese grater or be audited? (Hey the Cheese grater idea is mine! Actually it wasn't it was from an old episode of Saturday night live with Billy Crystal)

Cheese grater for sure.

30. Sassy: Would you rather drink a gallon of dirty hot dog water OR a shot glass of foot sweat?

I HATE both, but the hot dog water is the one I pick.

31. Would you rather loose your 4 front teeth after bouncing your head off a cement curb OR get a paper cut on your eye?


32. Would you rather have explosive diarrhea OR uncontrolled vomiting?

Either way it would be good.............I would loose weight :) Oh on second thoughts, the vomiting would ruin my teeth.

33. Drama Mama : Would you rather have a Permanent Yeast Infection or Permanent Hemorrhoids?

Not sure as I haven't had hemorrhoids before.

34. Ann asked : Would you rather be able to read your husband's mind? Or have him be able to read yours? (Good one!)

This is so easy. Him to read my mind. I can already read his. Most women can read men's minds (except Tattooed Mini Van Momma) cause their isn't much in them.

35. Toni asked: Would you rather suffer from incurable baldness, everywhere, or wolfman's disease, everywhere?


36. Would you rather share your house with a skunk or a porcupine?

I have always wanted a pet skunk. You can have their stink taken care of and have them as pets. But they are illegal to have in Missouri, or you bet I would have one. Aren't they so cute??

37. Betty asked: Would you rather eat opossum roadkill (thats been jacked up) or bambi.

Another easy one, bambi!

38.Tatooed Mini Van Mamma: Would you rather be able to say anything you want on your blog and risk offending people and/or losing readers or would you rather keep it edited?

Edit of course :) Saying anything I want gets me into trouble. Plus my parents read this blog.

JUST an FYI for those of you wondering how long I would let the dishes sit trying to get Child Husband to clean them up.......................

I finished up the dishes tonight :(

Friday Fragments?

My new bumper magnet must be working. It says "Sorry Officer, I thought you wanted to race" Because so far all the cops behind me haven't pulled me over. Even though I was speeding and also my tailight was out. I tried sticking my hand out the window and making handsigns, even though I can't remember which driving siganl means I am turning right. So I just tried to finger spell it in ASL.


My father finally worked up the courage to post a comment on my blog. His ID was Skifeet (don't ask). Now after all these months of lurkdom, I wonder if I can persuade him to open his own blog he can post his own naked pictures

I got into my only pair of jeans again. Yes, I had a HUGE muffin top, but that is beside the point. Tomorrow I start a one week adventure of going vegetarian. Child Husband is fixing my favorite meat dish as we speak, the jerk!

I've had no calls about Mercede's bad behavior at school this week. But maybe that is cause they are sending it home on notes now.

NikkiCrumpet is giving away a Fab signed George Clooney photo, unfortunately skank Heather is trying to undermind me by paying or threatning others to comment on her behalf. Feel free to go over and tell Nikki how I deserve George each comment on my behalf, will earn 100 dollars
Tomorrow, I'm going to have to put on the gloves and do those dishes :(

Mercede, Mercede, Mercede (said to the tune of Marsha, Marsha, Marsha)

Why do you feel the need to put on your coat and back pack over your pajama's, while watching TV?


And why do you insist on wearing shoes that are over three years old?


Aysha, why won't you wear clothes in the house? And why are you laying under the cushion of that NASTY, UGLY sofa, your father picked up off the curb of a neighbors home ?


Child husband, please do the dishes! I decided I will not do them. I did fill the water for you (added half beach since I know your allergic to it). I'm going to add more bleach everyday til you do them!

Deep thoughts

Ok, I'm lying to you. No deep thoughts at all. Heck, not even sure I have a thought process anymore, it is gone, in a black hole.

I worked 101 hours this week, yes in one week, yes it is possible. Not possible to keep your sanity though. I haven't read but maybe two post this week, all I had time for. I only checked my email every 3 days and then didn't check much of it.

I had staffing issues and health issues come up at work, which affected how much I had to work. I slept very little. I'm getting ready to do a shift that starts at 1030pm and will end sometime tomorrow evening.

My kids are with my parents (I love my parents) and my husband is NOW at work, though he was home ALL week and didn't do one dish. I worked my butt off and he couldn't do a lousy dish. Cause he didn't feel like it. I'm almost at a 100 post, should I have a giveaway involving Child Husband?? Would any of you comment if I did? Or would you be afraid to win him.

Now off to do a WEEKS worth of dishes and will also be leaving a note for my child husband to tell him that Santa ain't leaving him any gifts this year!

We Were The 80's

Welcome to the 80's! It's 80's day! 

In the 80's I carried a Disc Camera at all times
that is why my pictures are all blurry.

In the 80's, you didn't get your hair colored at the Salon, you got a bottle of Sun Inthen you regretted it and went to the Salon

In the 80's I shaved both sides of my head thank goodness I have no photo's of it, and was

also able to hide it under the rest of my hair. But my sister totally rocked the Cyndi

Lauper hair style!

In the 80's, it was scary to eat at Taco Bell if I was working there!
Yes, I think the cheese fell out of my mouth and back into that pan.

In the 80's you could wear your underwear over your clothes as long as you had your Swatch Watch on and Add a Bead necklace.

no I didn't really wear the outfit out like that...........that I can remember.

In the 80's it was a male magnet to wear two swatch watches at the same time, a bonus if one had a swatch guardYes, I found a photo with me wearing two, just look closely, but that shirt is hideous and those glasses.

In the 80's, blue eye shadow was in with green mascara

In the 80's I also went thru ALOT of blue eyeliner
ok, so I thought it looked good then

In the 80's I didn't have a Raspberry Beret
but I had a nice Cherry one

In the 80's it was popular to take photo's with your friends in the bathroomwith that handy dandy disc camera

In the 80's it was also popular for your boyfriends parents to take photo's of you doing your hair in the BATHROOM after you went swimmingand were running late to your Taco Bell job
had to get their in time to drool in the cheese bin again.

Yes I will get on with the story now

In the 80's on Christmas night 1986, just hours after this photo was taken

of me rocking my swatch watch shirt and swatch watch, and 80's hair and earrings

Little did I know that I would be arrested. Why you ask? Well I was at my Taco Bell Christmas Party, which was held on Christmas night right up my street at a supervisors home. My sisters boyfriend asked me to drive him home, which was clear across town. I should of said "no" and drove the 2 blocks to my house. But I drove him home..........well okay, I didn't drive him home. I drove him all around town cause I was stupid and he asked me too. He had me drive him to a hotel which he stole the exit sign from, then he had me drive him around to find those big signs on ground that are lit up and have the letter wordings on them. He was stealing the letters off of them. I was the get away driver. We also ran another errand I will get to later. Well on about our 10th sign, he was juggling light bulbs when a police car drove up. The cop made us go all around town putting the letters back on the signs. BUT then the cop found out that one of the hotel exit signs was broken. So he arrested us.

In the 80's, if you were arrested, you got to drive yourself to jail, okay, maybe not for everyone, but he had me drive to the station to be processed. Weird huh. I should of out ran him;)

You also called your mother and told her to bring $100 that you had just gotten for Christmas, to the jail to bond you out.......hanging up on her when she started screaming.
In the 80's it was best to try and stop your mother from calling the newspaper to keep your name out of the paper. Because that would cause them to make a HUGE article with your name in it, when it normally would of been your name in little print under the arrest part of the paper. Not a WHOLE separate piece. Sadly, I didn't keep the paper. I didn't realize it would make for good blogging over 20 years later ;)

In the 80's, it was probably not a good thing to go by your ex boyfriends

HOME, and leave the sign letters that were stolen in his yard spelling out some bad words with his name in the beginning. Because he NEVER would of known it was you, if it wasn't for that HUGE piece in the paper about you being involved with the theft of letters off of signs.

I was Double Dogged Dared

Lynette to post a lovely photo of my father......right after he got out of

the shower, in only his shorts (but holding his pants) prancing

around. I was
Double Dogged Dared to post this photo for his

71rst birthday today.

BUT..........First I want to say a few things.

Dad, I love you, and I know I always get you the crappiest birthday gifts ( a month or two after your birthday, if I do get you anything). Then there is that problem of me never remembering your birthday. You know how I always get the dates mixed up and think it is the 29th (I called Kristi on Sat to confirm the date), and mom NORMALLY gives me a reminder call (your lucky I remembered mom, your slacking), and I am normally too busy working to come visit you (nothing has changed in that area). But I do love you and you have been the best father a daughter could want. You are always there for me when I need you (with twenty dollar bills...... ok, you know I don't do mushy well), your'll drive three hours to my home to babysit on a three hour notice. You do so much for me and I'll never be able to repay you. Over the years I have learned so much about you that I never suspected. I would of never pictured you as the caretaker you are. I'm choking all up thinking about how you cared for your brother and sister during their last stages of life. How you didn't want to leave their sides because you wanted to be there if they needed you, til the end. You amaze me with your strength father. I'm glad I took after you (with the exception of the quick temper, of course, lol).

Happy 71rst Birthday Dad.

And because I was dared, here is that half naked picture of you...


Whew, now that wasn't so bad was it??????

Just a reminder to everyone else...

Don't forget about
We Were the 80's Day on this Thursday (Mr. Linky is up)

Welcome to my Ativan induced Blogstophere!

Welcome all my SITSTA's! You came at the perfect time. While you are visiting, I'm might be at the hospital getting fixed, refer to this post for more information on that lovely topic. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and it is also Down Syndrome Awareness month. Something I know alot about, since my two oldest brats teen daughter's have down syndrome. Mercede is 18 and Cheyenne is 16. They have a rarer form of down syndrome called Translocation Trisomy 21. It is the only form of down syndrome that can be inherited. And you guessed it, I am a carrier. It's all good. God knew I would love one of them so much, he gifted me with two. I'm married to Child Husband, so called because he is 11 years younger than me, and also cause he acts like a baby child. I've got two other children Chris and Aysha and a pet fish that I hate, cause it ate 75 dollars worth of snails, crabs and fish

I started this blog after a friend of mine Meredith adopted two children with down syndrome from the Ukraine. She went thru Reece's Rainbows International Adoption Ministry. I started stalking adoption blogs from Reece's. They are saving children with down syndrome (and other disabilities) from being put in a institution where they may die early from starvation and neglect. I fir
st heard about SITS on a site where a woman had adopted three children with down syndrome. I'm so glad I did. I've made many new bloggy friends but I'll post about that tomorrow on the BIG SITS DAY!!

In honor of it being Down Syndrome Awareness month, I'll direct you to my friend Renee's Blog She has a beautiful daughter Kennedy with down syndrome whom has braved cancer and neck surgery this last year. She is blogging 31 days for T21 and has a contest going on where you can win a gift basket. You can also learn alot about down syndrome over there. Over here your just going to learn how crazy my family is and why I carry a script for Ativan in my purse!!

Oh and I'm going to host a We Were the 80's day on October 30th. It will be a day to show off your stylist 80's photo's (if your were born before then). Just email (email is listed in my profile) me a link to your blog and I'll post it up on the 30th.

Thanks for stopping by. If I make it out of the hospital, you should hear from me by Tuedays night, if you don't, then send money to my family;) Do say some prayers for Tiffany today as she is going into the hospital today for a more serious surgery than I.

Yikes, they posted early today!! I'm not done with my post, oh no!! I'd better get this thing up!

Update: I had no idea they were putting me out and putting a breathing tube in for this procedure. I almost walked out. All is good though. I just slept my SITS day away!! lol

The Pumpkin Festival from H...................................

Saturday, my only day partially off. I say partially because I am still on pager, and I get at least six calls from my staff on Saturdays. Today I slept in and then while I was still in my undies (I knew you would want that information) I emailed Rhea a few times about the trip my family were going to take to the Hartsburg Pumpkin Festival. We finally got on the road and were two miles outside Hartsburg at 1pm. AT 2pm, we were still two miles outside Hartsburg. Mercede was throwing a fit in the back of the car. I had Cheyenne and Aysha spraying her with their squirt water bottles, as I couldn't reach her myself. We finally hit Hartsburg right before 3pm. Then I saw the population sign, I was scared. This town puts on a festival that has thousands of people that attend and THIS is their population.....


I did find out why it took two hours to move 2 miles, look at the detour they had us go thru..


We finally hit the festival and I spot a pumpkin snow man. So cute..


Then we have to drive thru, yes thru the festival!! Do you know how long it takes to move thru all these people walking in front of you?


Then I finally find a parking place next to the corn field and Children of the Corn scenes race thru my mind. I wait a few minutes in my car, to make sure Malachai doesn't pop out at us.


We have only two hours to spend at the festival because it ends at 5pm. It was two hours too long!lol Mercede was on a roll, and I had to call my husband to tell him I might have to sacrifice Mercede to "He Who Walks Behind the Rows". Mercede got lucky as I never ran into Isaac. We did find some pumpkins. Mercede had some choice words when she found out I wasn't going to carry one of them back to the car.


Their were some interesting sights to see like this dog, his name is Cajun (bet you couldn't figure that out)


Oh and they had funnel cakes, wait it gets better they had funnel cakes with lots of bavarian creme on top. I wanted to snap a picture, I really did, but we ate it too quick but I did snap this photo of Aysha with some traces of it on her.


Ok, so it wasn't all bad, I found these crafts, and I took the lady's card, so now my family will know what they are getting for Christmas (the lady's card, ha ha).


After Mercede and I wrestled near the Baptist Church (I was just trying to baptist her), we decided it was time to head home, well that and the fact it was 5pm. I noticed that we must of missed Malachai, as he had left some marks of his sickle in this pumpkin next to the corn field.


As we are pulling out of the corn field, we are made to detour to a country road. Then it ends and their are two ways to take, no directions on either way. Cars in front of me turn both ways, so I choose right. A car going the opposite way flags me down and ask if I know how to get to the highway. I was going to ask them the same. So after I go that way awhile, I turned around and went the other way, and then I turned around again and headed back the way I started.... and then I turned again, cause I stopped someone whom knew where to go. I traveled on this back road to "no where" forever. I can't see anything from the dust.


Then there was this bridge, yikes, are their words..


I really thought that this was going to be like those movies of them small towns that lure tourist to their deaths. But we did make it home. I stopped at Wal-Mart to buy Mercede a pumpkin to stuff her in, I also got a picture of the crafts the girls picked out. I had to take the photo by my favorite spider Bert. Bert is only one of the few hundred spiders that have taken over our home.

My Favorite Antique: Pee Boy

Ever since I was a child I always loved looking at
a curio shelf at my grandmothers house. She had this little figuring that was so interesting. My mother said they have had it since she was a little girl, they bought it at a fair (or maybe won it). Pee boy is now over 50 years old !! He has a little container of pee that has stayed intact for over 50 years. As a child ( and an adult,lol) I loved making the pee go back and forth in it's little container. I always told my grandmother that after she passed, I was going to take Pee Boy. And Pee Boy is now unfortunately mine. He still fascinates me. He is dirty, he looks the same as the day I brought him home.


I store him in another antique I love, that was my grandmothers. The bowl matched a piggy bank I had. I later found out that same person made them. I don't have good pictures of them, they have lovely color swirls going thru them (you can kinda see it on the pig).
The sad thing is, with my kids, I doubt Pee Boy, the Pee Boy Bowl or my Piggy bank will survive the next 5 years.

Out of the mouth of babes..

Today I sneezed, yelled something and then ran to the bathroom.

Aysha comes into the bathroom and says "Mommy, did you pee your pants?"

Me: "No, No, no I didn't. What makes you think that?"

Aysha: "Cause when you sneezed you said a bad word."

Well that is nice to know that it wasn't my action of running to the bathroom pulling my pants down!
