I’m pretty sure Hell has frozen over…

My brother sent me a message today.

The one I haven’t spoken to in almost a year.

He basically said he had to take some time off, to get his act together. He is dating a new girl. And he was hearing things from our friends about me. Wha?

First, I don’t have the time, nor the inclination to go out to bars and party. I am a grown-up. I have two small children. The last time I went anywhere was two months ago? three months ago? I honestly don’t remember. So for any of his friends to say shit about me really pisses me off. Because these same people? Who I have run into around town? Are busy talking smack about him. Good friends, wouldn’t you say?

He was always rather easily led by his group of friends. Me? Not so much. I could give a flying fig what people think of me. Either you like me, or you don’t. I am not going to waste my time worrying either way. But that’s me. It still irks me that that could be part of the reason he wasn’t speaking to me. I am going to try and let it go. But it is going to be hard. He has done this before. And then something set him off and I wouldn’t hear from him for x amount of time.

He says he has changed. I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.


NaBloPoMo, NaBloPoMo…

If I haven’t mentioned it before, I am VERY excited to take part-a small part!- in this year’s event.

I have a ton of material just waiting to be used. I feel I should offer some sort of warning. Like a rating, perhaps? It won’t be pretty. It won’t always be something you want to hear. Or maybe even read. It WILL be real. And things that are actually going on in my life. Or have gone on in my life in the last few years.


It won’t all be bad. I do have some funny things to talk about. Or, at least funny to me. I just want you to come away with a better view of who I am. The person I used to be.

And the person I am now.

Then you can feel free to be all “Judgy-Wudgy Was a Bear”…

Or not.


I joined NaBloPoMo several weeks ago and have been kind of slacking in updating, or putting up mah widget.

But no longer! It stops today! HAH!

Too far?

I thought the concept was interesting. I have read several bloggers who have participated in years past and decided to join this year. Because I am all crazy-wild like that. So we’ll see how it goes. I think I have been pretty good about posting every day. For the most part. I am sure I can come up with plenty of things to post about. I have tons of stuff already. I just am usually too lazy to dig them out.

Now it looks like I will have the opportunity to finally do so.

Wish me luck!

And as a side note- I am feeling much better. The germy beasts, er, the boys were feeling fine TWO DAYS AGO! TWO. DAYS. Whilst I suffered. Ingrates.

USC-38, Notre Dame-0

You know I haven’t felt well if I forgot to put this up! I was beyond excited. I despise Notre Dame with the fire of a thousand hells. With Michigan following a close second.

I didn’t get to see the game- stupid work. I did check it out online though!

Bright side of possible jury duty? I can watch college football ALL DAY ON SATURDAYS. How excellent would that be? Please don’t think I am making light of jury duty or being sequestered. I’m not.

But I gotta find something to look forward to if I am going to be away from the boys for three weeks. And apparently that is it!


Sorry I haven’t posted recently. My children have decided to wage germological warfare on their poor mama. I feel like death.

Right about now I would welcome it with open arms. Seriously. It is that bad. I won’t bore you with gross details.

Just send Nyquil. And maybe some comfy pants.

Blast from the past…

I am sitting at home, minding my own beeswax, when all of this sudden my cell phone rings. Lo, and behold, it is my friend S.

He is in town and wants to hang out. I tell him that I can’t, because Jimmy isn’t home and I have the kids.

So, we start chatting about every day life and he asks the fucking million-dollar question. Hey, how’s your brother? I have to tell him the whole crappy story. Plus, as a bonus? I get to tell him that my grandma died last year, right before Christmas. Having spent time with her, he was upset. So as you can guess it went downhill from there.

Again, I have NO idea why my bubba is no longer speaking to me. To us. I just wish he would tell his friends what the fook is going on. The holiday season is coming up. I have MORE than enough on my plate right now, without having to worry about what is going on with him.

Is that too much to ask?

I’m sorry, so sorry…

The reason for my lack of postings is so pitiful. I almost can’t even tell you.

I was supposed to particpate in an event this weekend. I was soooo excited. I bought a new outfit.


It was Wednesday night. I cried. You don’t understand. I was going to meet Zoot. And her fellow bloggers. It was a big, huge deal. I was nervous and all sorts of excited. I realize that I am fairly new to the blogging world, but Zoot has always made me feel welcome. More than welcome.

I feel like I have let her down. I am pretty sure that NO amount of doughnuts can make up for that.

Even if they were hand-delivered.
