When reading blogs, is it just ME who gets the SHIT scared out of them when music starts blaring from the blog? I am afraid to blog surf anymore without a diaper.

3 Words

A Pug Mama is starting up a sweet little bloggy gig. The premise is to sum up your week in three little words.“You can sing it, you can say it, you can write it, you can draw it. It can be funny or sad or poignant as long as it’s honest.”Anyway, I want to start this in blogger world. 3 words to sum up your week - posted in any form you chose. Video, picture, etc....get as creative as you want. We will do it on Sundays, that way you will have had enough time to think about how you want to sum up your week.

Here is mine:

Fits of Rage and Lent

Let's start with the fun one, shall we? If someone else asks me WHY we don't adopt domestically (the US) I seriously will start ripping lips. First of all, is it YOUR business WHERE my child comes from? Secondly, IF there are SO MANY children that need homes in the United States, then WHY don't you get YOUR ass to the nearest Social Worker/Attorney/Adoption Agency and get your process started to adopt or become a foster parent? I'm not being harsh, people, I HAVE adopted domestically. I am one of the biggest advocates for domestic adoption and foster care. This time around I chose to adopt from China for reasons that only matter to me. It just really gets SO annoying when you are talking about your adoption process and then you are stopped dead in the middle of your adoption story and are asked the same question OVER and OVER. I am tired of 'defending' my decision, tired of defending China and the horrible wait, and tired of people who would rather talk about our children in crisis here in the US, but then do absolutely nothing about it. I am about to embark on a volunteer mission with a child advocacy group for children in the foster care system. I will be a liaison between the child and their social worker and the court system. Yes, there is a ton of children in foster care who need forever families and I am the biggest cheerleader for these children. But how come when a volunteer who has a bio child, they are not asked the question "Why did you decide to HAVE a child when there are so many children who need homes in the US?". Funny, this question never comes up.

**Rant over**


Now on to Lent. What does a good Catholic girl who darkens the doorstep of mass once a decade do for Lent? She gives up $tarbucks. I have, since Fat Tuesday, not had a grande nonfat vanilla latte. Not one. It's been rough. I didn't give it up for the caffeine as I was not an everyday user of the latte. I was in it for the sugary, vanilla goodness. The reason I gave it up was the cost. I would hit 'buck's about every other day and maybe once on the weekend. I figured it out that I was spending quite a wad of cash each week. When I figured it out cost wise, I was spending $15.90 per week on the elixir of the stupid. That is $62.40 per month. That is $748.80 per year. What the EFF was I thinking? So, I have taken that $15.90 and rounded it up to $25.00 per week and I have it automatically deposited each week in my Tigerlily fund. I will admit it. I miss my latte. For me home made coffee and flavored creamers just don't have the same yum factor. I will take one for the team for my little girl.

Are we getting closer?

Here's to you Mrs. Robinson

My girl Maia knows how to hook a shorty up. Thank you for the cutest gifts ever! The ugly doll is so not ugly, its cute, WAY cute. The body butter has the most awesome scent, it is reminiscent of my younger years of Coppertone and Bain de Soliel. I am listening to Simon and Garfunkel sing "Mrs. Robinson" on my way cool Monkey Girl CD. How am I going to blow boogers on that cute kleenex? Thanks again, my friend!

This is what we did today. It was such a beautiful day today we decided to get busy on the back patio. We have (or shall I say HAD) this hideous block wall surrounding our patio so we decided to knock that bad actor down. It was fun. Sledgehammers are a cool thing. All this to get ready for our new SPA!!!! Yeah, we threw down some cash and bought a spa. While we were at it we decided to buy the BBQ island for the outdoor kitchen. Because construction (or shall I say the M-EFFing County) is taking so long to get going we decided to start on the backyard first. I am really stoked to get my outdoor kitchen, I have been wanting this for a long time. Now I just need to talk my homeboy into getting the wood fire pizza oven.........

Twin Engine #2 (Reed) decided to do a little project of his own today with some transplanted bottle palms, some old tiles and a copper lawn thingy. He did this all by himself.

As I got a closer look I noticed this

They made this for me ions ago and he added it in his little garden. So sweet.

Doodle Pill Hall of Fame

Every once in a while I go into my email spam folder for some comedy. Although, I have no need for wiener pills, the subject lines are the BEST!

Here are some of my favorites:

  • "A well hung SCHLON'G will get you places you've never been before"-----Thanks, but I'd rather take a plane
  • "Hear her scream your name in passion!"------I would rather hear her scream that my table at Olive Garden is ready
  • "Give the girls what they want with your long and hard instrument"-----Most girls I know like drummers anyway
  • "The baby-maker grows and develops GRADUALLY, not over night!"-----Kinda like a real baby!
  • "Relax and have fun with your poker"-----I prefer to relax over Bingo, but thanks!
  • "Outsized schlon'g for you and your gf!"-----Outsized? Wouldn't that hurt?
  • "Huge boner for you!"-----I'd really prefer a pony, but I guess a boner will do.
  • "Make your love stick longer and more powerful!"-----My love sticks name is Pixie and she is filled with sugar, THAT my friend has the power.
  • "All natural growth of your willy!"-----I saw Free Willy and I don't think he needs to be any bigger.
  • "A bigger wang is only months away"-----Well, thinner Chung will be happy! Do you think they will do a reunion tour?

Panic at the disco

I would have posted this a while ago but I had to change my knickers before I did any thing. Since my accountant is coming tomorrow to do all of our year end tax stuff, I was the organized little bee and reconciled all of my accounts, did massive data entry into Quickb00ks, did some old accounts receivable and what not. Since today is usually my day of f I was proud of myself that I hauled my booty to work in the first place. Since I was on a roll I decided since I had my upgrade to install the 2008 version of QB. I slapped it in and let it go to town while I walked to the market for a green tea. Since I have installed more upgrades than I can count I pushed the buttons that needed to be pushed. Long story short, when I went to pull up my companies in the new version THEY WERE NO WHERE TO BE FOUND. I looked here, nope. I looked there, nope. I sat there and stared at the screen. No company files anywhere. 7 years of accounting in computer limbo, where the hell could they have gone. The genius I am, did not back up before the upgrade. I know, I know, IDIOT (Did I not learn from Carrie Bradshaw when her Mac blew up and she didn't have a back up? See, and you thought Sex @nd the City was not informational). I went through the box and found the instructions for install. Screw the instructions I went straight to the big guns, the QB call center in the Philippines. My girl Sheila, calmed me down, said it would be ok and we went to town searching every file in my computer. After about an hour we found it. There it was like a shiny star bigger than Dallas, my companies files. I seriously thought I was going to stroke out, but Sheila saved me. All is well in QBLand. Now on to taxes........YUCK.
