Why am i always late?

You know, it doesn't matter if I wake up 3 hours earlier I will always still be late. For instance:

Sunday morning: We are getting ready for church. We're doing great time wise and then it happens. I see the MB has decided to take his diaper off and poop in the floor. Ick. It gets worse. I discover he's walked in it and tracked it all in the carpet. Why Lord Why??? We get *it* cleaned up. We clean MB up. We're late. I'm running to the closet to find my shoes when I step in something mushy. We missed a spot. Ugh. Kids are gross.

Oh, i'm Laffing...

From CNN:

Abercrombie & Fitch pokes fun at West Virginia, again
CHARLESTON, West Virginia (AP) -- Abercrombie & Fitch is poking fun at West Virginia with a T-shirt again, this one reading: "West Virginia: No Lifeguard at the Gene Pool."

It would be even more funny if it was for Alabama.

I'm hooked

On the Olympics that is. I find myself staying up later than usual just to watch. Sure i love it when the USA wins but i'm also one of those idiots that love it when a country wins a medal in something they never have before. I'm the type that hates to see someone lose. Maybe i'm the loser for thinking that way.

He made a 100!

My nephew made a 100 on his spelling test today. This is amazing news. People that know his situation know this is a huge step for the little guy. I'm so proud of him!

La phew!

While reading Mingaling this morning i suddenly freaked that i might have to renew my license in a month. I didn't want to be put through that torture so i killed myself trying to find my purse to look and see when they expired. 2006...Laphew.

In Mountain Mama's perfect world...

I would wake up every morning looking perfect.

I would never run out of gas in my car.

When i came home from work my house would be clean and supper cooked.

I would be able to zap people and get rid of them if they pissed me off while driving.

I would travel some place wonderful once a month.

MB would go to bed without one fuss or cry.

I could eat any stinking thing i wanted and still look slim and trim.

That is all for now.

Life is so scary

I'm the type of person who will worry about anything so when i read an article about a 3 year old boy choking to death on popcorn at a movie theater i can start to feel the anxiety rise in my body.

Since having MB i have found myself worrying even more if that could even be possible. His parents were right there and still couldn't save him. It's times like these that i wish i could just keep MB in a bubble so nothing can ever hurt him.

Who will be arrested this week?

One of my hobbies during the week is to open up the local paper and see if i know anyone who has been arrested. I usually know one or two. Last Friday i didn't even have to open up the paper because on the front page was a boy i went to school with and had the same homeroom with for 4 years. He decided "After watching a movie about bank robberies and since money had started to get tight" that he would rob the local credit union.

Mistake #1: he drove his own vehicle which happened to be a lifted truck and red.
Mistake #2: he had his PERSONALIZED license plate in the back window.
Mistake #3: Don't take your red ski mask off in the parking lot while people are watching you.

Sheesh.

Toys, Toys and more Toys!

I went to my first *toy* party last night. I'm ashamed that i spent enough money to get a free gift out of the prize box. :/

Having a baby changes everything...

Before Mountain Boy (MB) i could stay up late and it wouldn't bother me. Now i try to get in bed when he does because i know it could be a long night.

Before MB I would have the mornings to myself to get ready and watch the news or Today Show. Now i'm running around trying to keep MB off the furniture while i apply my mascara.

Before MB I could turn on the t.v. and watch my favorite shows. Now the station is pretty much set on Playhouse Disney. "He's Rollie Pollie Ollie..."

Change is good.

Grocery Stores

I'm sure my friend can relate to this post.
Where i live you are classified by where you buy groceries. These are the people you normally find at the following places:

Save-A-Lot

I will admit that i shopped here once. Once was enough. You can only shop at this store if you plan on paying with food stamps and your WIC card. Everything is off brand. It's a good day if you find something with a name brand.


Food Lion

*Heathens* shop here. We are supposed to be boycotting them for selling alcohol. My mom, who is in charge of the women's ministry at church, shops here. Therefore, she's a heathen. :)

Ingles

Any person with any dignity or class will shop here. People are actually normal and decent and not scary to look at. This, my friends, is where i spend my money.

"Shooo"

I put supper in the crockpot this morning. I came home this afternoon and as i was carrying Max through the door he goes "Shooo Mama" Ya, thanks kid. No supper for him tonight!

To Each Their Own...

On my way to work this morning i'm just baffled at why people do certain things.
For instance, the guy in the brown house that has two fake deer in the front yard. Why? Does he think they look real? Does he think other people think they look real?

Another example is the lady on the hill. She has planted flowers to spell out VOLS. She has orange and white bows all over her fence. This is DAWG country, lady. You're just asking for some redneck to come and run their jacked up truck through that *lovely* flower bed of yours.
