Welcome Leonardo Numchuck

Hello today friends. For some reason I keep thinking today is Friday, but unfortunately it is only Thursday. DAMN !

Well, last night I took the DS to buy a new fish. He is a very handsome Beta, he has a lot of red to him, and a beautiful tail. His name is Leonardo Numchuck Novy. The DS likes to give things middle names, I think it is cute. I bought some new fish food last night too, and then today I overfed the damn thing! Am I being punished or something ???? Anyhow, the picture is not of our own Leonardo, but another reddish beta ... Leonardo is much more handsome than that !

Anyone read the NY post this week? What is the deal with Randy Johnson ? It has been bugging me that this Christian man has a daughter out there from an old girlfriend that he doesn’t care to know. He just pays them every month and leaves it at that, and now that the Mom has asked him for some help to pay for college and a reliable car for his daughter, he is going to sue the woman for overpaying his child support. Well it is his own fault that he kept paying her for daycare expenses when she is now 16, it’s just him being a dumb a$$. The guy is a flippin millionaire and this is what he decides to do, for $93,000 he over payed her … JERK ! I don’t like when dad’s do that stuff, I have a hard enough time w/ my own DS’s father … no offense.

Today I am debating of going home to my parents for the weekend. My friend became a father at the beginning of the month and I would love to see my “niece”. I always get to be an auntie, because I am an only child. I have great best friends from high school whom my DS calls auntie and uncle – and they now return the favor. So I am feeling the need to go home and see her, and buy her some girlie things !

My mom and dad are going to be remodeling their house, so my bedroom will be moved to the basement … and the DS’s stuff will move into mine. That is another reason to go home, stay in MY room one last time !!!! Not that it is really my room anymore, none of my stuff is really in there, except for the Graduation Barbie I got in 1997, when I graduated from high school, she even has a purple cap and gown, like me !

R.I.P K.C. Jones

So, last night, my DS’s fish died. He was a beta … his name was K.C. B.B. Gun Jones. He was a good fish, never complained, was always happy, and really friendly for a fish. Seriously, this fish would come to the top of the bowl, and blow bubbles at you when you talked to him …

I had changed K.C.’s water on Sunday night, and I use bottled water (only the best for our fish !) and he was happy, and swimming around. He was fine in the morning when I fed him … when I was getting ready to go upstairs last night I was gonna drop another pellet of food in there for a snack, and noticed the water was cloudy-ish. So, I go down and look, and sure enough, the fish had died. I feel awful.

I debated: do I tell the DS or do I buy a new fish ? I told him, and he was so heartbroken. We are going to buy a new one tonight, but the DS says he will always love K.C. We said a little prayer, and flushed him into fish heaven. DS wanted to bury him, but I convinced him that flushing is better, cause fish like water.

I knew that the DS would want to sleep in my room last night, and sure enough he did. Now he is worried that I will die suddenly, like his fish. (Evil Mom I am, thinks this will work to my advantage, and help straighten him up w/ the crappy attitude he’s been having lately ! mmwwhhhaaahaha !)

Onto happier thoughts, my fellow Enclavers and I are going on some sort of a diet/exercise regimen … we are each other’s support system, however we have no goals ! It’s been an interesting day so far …

Just another day ...

Ok People, Listen Up, cause I got nothing to say !


Sorry … where was I ?

Well, today is just another day. Nothing great or wonderful will be happening, it never does. All I have to look forward to is taking the DS out for our routine Tuesday night dinner, and a stop at the movie store, but I don’t really want to buy King Kong … I heard bad things about it … do you have a suggestion ?

I am still counting down the days to the Slumber Party of the Enclave, only 143 more days. I wish I could hit fast forward and be only 10 days from now. I am ready for baseball to start … to hell with ST … bring on the regular season and the playoff’s ! I am still obsessing over Johnny D. He is what does it for me, I tell ya ! He’s great … and seeing him in person will make my trip to Boston complete.

Today, my fellow Enclavers and I were talking about drinking. Where we want to go for cocktails, what kind of beer/cocktails we want to have, what types of booze to bring to the hotel room. This is a party after all, and what party is complete without alcohol ??? I better start practicing up … build up my tolerance ! I am ready for a weekend of naughtiness … hope they don’t read this and see what I am saying … don’t want to scare them off … now if JD factored into the naughtiness, that’s another story … but the prick is married and his wife (I got shivers down my spine there) probably won’t let him run amok with his cyber wives … Maybe next time !

Well, I just need to say that I got my haircut this weekend … I used to keep it long for some asshole guy, and now to cleanse myself of him, I cut it … I go through these stages periodically, so pay no attention …

Ok ... I am done for now people's ... thanks for listening ... to uh, nothing ? LOL !

***And a side note: Is there a more perfect man than this ??? (sigh ........................)

Kids and Rocks ...

Today is Friday. THANK GOODNESS ! It has been a very long week !

I woke up this morning at 4:15 am – I had to be somewhere by 5:30 am so I could purchase some raffle tickets for a chance to win 6 tickets plus round trip limousine transportation to St Paul, MN to see Kid Rock ! The tickets wee $10.00 each – and I bought 5 – they were only selling 100 of them. My friend bought 10, and the other one bought 2 – so we have 17 tickets amongst us … the odds are good … So, we go to breakfast before work since it is only like 6:20 am, after I drop my son off at school I look at one of my friends and we know, we just know we should stop any buy a couple more … so we do … I really want to take my mom and dad with me to the concert … they would LOVE it.

I have NO plans for the weekend … taking the DS to a birthday party and then he has a hockey banquet / dinner in the evening. I love that he has all of these hockey trophy’s in his room, it makes me so proud. Coming from the North country of the Midwest hockey runs through your blood … I grew up watching my cousins all play, and I love that my son now plays … Sending him off to hockey camp again this summer, he got better this season after having practiced in the off season. The DS is only 6, and most everyone else on his team is 8, but he can compete … He just needs to practice, pay attention, and play!

Well, I am still counting down for my trip … Can you believe we are down to 147 days until game day ? WOW ! I just get so excited when I think about this. Anyone reading this that is going with … are you as excited as I am ???? We are still working on where we are going to stay … there are some really nice hotels out there … we should have a nice time …

Well … I should stop rambling … I tend to do that … SORRY !

- Random -

Wow … what to do, what to do ?!? On my last post I talked about the DS’s friend, and how they behaved with each other … well now his mom called and wants us to have dinner together again … I don’t know that I can handle these kids behaving naughty like they did last week … URGH !

So, today I have physical therapy for my back and neck, I am a bit sore today, so I hope it helps.

Now that Spring is approaching, I am starting to get out of my funk. I think I get a bit depressed at the end of winter, and now I am feeling more upbeat. I want to do more things, and make plans to do stuff, and do the spring cleaning … now if I could only convince myself to do those 43 loads of laundry that is piling up in the laundry room.

This week, as I was doing some laundry … I noticed that I have a tendency to buy skirts, and not wear them. I have about 15 skirts in my closet that I have never worn, I probably bought them on sale, and there they have stayed, on the hanger. So, the other night I was at the store. I walk past the center clearance rack, and what do I see ? A purple skirt for $1.00. Do I walk past and leave it there for someone else ? No, I quickly grab it and put it in my cart and tell myself that I will wear it. Do I think I will ? Ummm, probably … not, but I am going to put a good effort and try !

So, as for the upcoming trip to Boston. Only 150 more days. I am getting excited. I am starting to look at prices for my airline ticket, we are also trying to narrow down where we want to stay. We have 7 people going … so we are going to try for 2 adjoining rooms to make the slumber party more spacious and roomy … FTLOG … I am going to see Johnny Damon … in 150 days … (faints … ) I am debating on what kind of sign I want to make … a friend that is coming suggested something dirty, go figure … It would be cute … picture this … A picture of Johnny
followed by the words “I want to ride you like a” … and then ending with a picture of a stallion … What do you think ? I am going for the shock factor here ! Maybe I will use these two pictures ... ? ...

Stressors of raising children ...

Oh … the joy of children !

I let my DS have a sleepover with one of his friends from school last weekend, and I am still trying to recover ! It was awful ! It was a nightmare ! I do not plan on ever having another one !

His friend, from here on in referred to as DSF, is 8 and the DS is 6. They are in a multi age classroom. I took them bowling, rented movies, ordered pizza, played games, but nothing I did was good enough for the DSF. I think the DSF has an attention problem, after 10 minutes into anything, other than the bowling, he was ready to move on to something else. Then the kids would fight !!!! OMG, would they fight. The DSF would not share the PS2, so after numerous requests to share I said I would be shutting it off, so once again my son comes downstairs to say there is not yet any sharing, so I said to shut it off. After the DS did as he was told, the DSF freaked out, and the DS was screaming ! I ran upstairs the DSF has my DS pinned on the floor, pinching his neck, and yelling at him !!!! I was royally ticked !!! The DSF broke things, or did things he wasn’t supposed to do, like play w/ blue play-doh on my white carpet, and jump on it to flatten it !!! … URGGGHHHHH !

So, does that give me just cause to tell the DS that we will NOT be having friends over for sleepovers for awhile ? Or maybe we will just try to have a different friend over … I don’t know.

I have to be honest, this experience made me so happy that I only have the one child. Maybe it’s because I am a single mother that this boy wouldn’t listen to me, since he doesn’t listen to his own mother. Boys tend to only fear the wrath of their fathers … or in my DS’s case, he fears my mother as he doesn’t want to disappoint her. I can still say to him that I am calling his gramma and he will shape up rather quickly.

OK … sound off 1-2 … 3-4 !!!

oh ... I cannot believe I almost forgot to mention this ... ONLY 156 more days until Red Sox vs. MFY's !!!!!

A ramble ...

Well … I don’t know … it’s been a rough 3 days I guess. I will keep it short ...

I am still a bit achy from the accident … real stiff and sore. I try to get up and move around to stretch, but I just need some relaxation time, so I guess it’s early to bed for me again tonight. The poor DS … we will come home, he will play for awhile while I am getting my jammies on, and meet me in my room. Last night we finished watching “Walk the Line” and started watching the new “Harry Potter – Goblet of Fire” flick. We saw it in the theatre, but we watched the other 3 this weekend, and we have to watch them in order.

So, to conclude the above ramblings of me, I am a movie junkie. I love Tuesdays, they are one of my favorite days of the week, and that is because that is New Movie Release Day !!!! Last week I bought “Walk the Line”, “Yours, Mine, & Ours”, and re-released “Lady and the Tramp”. Yesterday I picked up “Harry Potter” and “Jarhead”. It’s a sickness … I swear it is … The compulsion to buy DVD’s … I remember the first one I bought, Coyote Ugly. My 2nd and 3rd was Youngs Guns and Young Guns II. And I couldn’t stop, I probably have 350 of them, and counting … And the really anal part is that they are all in alphabetical order … IT IS A SICKNESS !

MOVING ON … Only 163 days until game day ! OMG, I cannot wait ! We had mentioned on the Enclave about getting Enclave shirts … but maybe we can do baseball style hats, I suggested that today … I think that would be fun ! Let everyone know we are there as a group – we even told Johnny himself about the Enclave … How great would it be to get him to autograph my hat ???? Keeping my fingers crossed …Oh ... I just hope we don't have to sit next to MFY's ... I don't want to be like these fellows, bashing each other over the head with clubs !

Stress kills ...

Wow … It’s been awhile. Sorry. What can I say, hell happens on Earth ?

I was in my first fender-bender, and I was the one rear ended. For now, no details needed, just wish me luck and that I am am strong again soon.

I survived corporate America ! I went through my first lay off experience, and was not even a pawn on the chopping block … I am sorry to those that were, we are all thinking about you. It was a very stressful time. One I hope I never have to experience again.

Well, what other good news to share with anyone who happens by ? Only 164 more days until game day … how do you like them apples ? CAN’T WAIT !

Does anyone have an e-bay addiction ? I do. I am into buying all of this scrapbook stuff, and pampered chef, and … well, basically just scrapbooking stuff. Yes, fun, but I love scrapping … have you ever tried it? I am trying to make books for both of my parents, and it’s time consuming … because they have different personalities and I want it to fit them. I made one for my DS’s father, when he got married … I hope it was appreciated, cause it took a long time !

Nothing can get me in the mood today, unless Johnny Damon was in town, and wanted to take me out for dinner tonight, but I will just go with my DS like I always do on Tuesday’s. No loss there, he’s a good date !

Well, I wish I could just puke, and make everything better !
