You know what??? I love my group of friends they always just seem to know what you need before you know you need it. Every once in awhile we have an impromptu party at my house during the week. Tonight was one of those nights! On the weekends, my house it the house to be at!! We always seem to start here, go our separate ways, met up and then again meet at my house. (No kid weekend) Gosh, I LOVE being single!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tonight was the night to hang out and let loose at my house. What could be better? A couple of old fashions, Ipod with cool songs, a broom, stripper shoes, liquid dinner ( I ate some cherries and you ate some olives). Then some NACHOS! Here it is only 10pm and what a night it was! We always come up with some slogans of the night........ Here they are in random order and they probably make no sense to anyone but us.. This is my Blog and I Will Blog what I want too.
- To the left, Ur shit is to the left or is that garage? It depends on where you are sitting. That's your right, just turn around and the garage is to the left.
- I like your dog so much better than HIS dog.
- Why does UR armpit smell like my hair?
- I will sleep with you, if you promise not to back hand me!!
- Your are CRAZY! I am so timid compared to you??
- I promise I won't bite! only a little....
- Why? It seemed like a good idea at the time. I thought you were blind.. "Remember, love is BLIND". Were you in a coma then?
- Ok, enough now.. How do we get in your house? We can enter through the back.. Crap, my fence is broke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Walk over it or bring a drill. You can't enter without a drill.
- You need a BIG drill to enter!
- Does every song on ur Ipod talk about sex? NO every song has an element of sex! It doesn't matter, I am off sex.
- Your cat is gay. Wrong, he is a trans-sexual, deal with it. I tend to have people in my life who have sexual identify issues, it's not your 1st time sitting here with people with sexual identity issues.
Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had a blast!!Here's to our Future!
Tonight while I was chatting it up with Audra, paying my cell bill...I came to realize that, dating really racks up the minutes on a cell phone bill.
Check this out...
Jan. 08- Feb. 08 = 160 minutes total
Feb.08 - March 08= 240 minutes total
March 08- April 08= 1700 minutes total
Which got me to thinking, can the Cell phone companies tell what's going on in person's life just by their bill.
Dating = Numerous of new #s, lots of calls after work, short conversations, some longer conversations to the friends, loads of txt messages
Narrowing Down the Dating Scene = Fewer new #s, more regular incoming #s, longer conversations, still lots of txt messages
Found the one = Still some regular #s, one # has lots of long late night conversations, fewer random txt messages, more regular txt msgs
Opps, wasn't the one = Going back to a few regular #s, Lots of txt msgs to previous #1, txt msgs in general are up again
This one is WAY better = Very few regular #s, A new #1 with lots of long midnight conversations, txt msgs are dwindling in general
Officially Dating = #1 is in the top spot by 90%, txt msgs by #1 takes the top spot however the "old" regulars are just down to the txt msg stage
Moving into together = #1 still top spot but at least now they are getting more sleep, short conversations, txt msgs mostly from #1
Married = #1 still called the most but conversations tend to be under 5 minutes in length, txt mgs mostly from friends on the weekends... I wonder what else they all can tell about us just by our patterns?
I was just saying to Audra how I really like this single thing; it's fun and kind of exciting. However, that's today tomorrow could be a totally different story.
As I was making my way to check the puter, I stumbled down my back stairs (It was only 3). All I could do was lay there laughing at myself with coffee spilled all over my white robe (It really is gray after years of use, shh). I know I looked really funny; it even caused my very particular cat to come running to see what all the noise was. All I could think about, as I lay there full of brown stuff, what if I was in the house all by myself? HELP I HAVE FALLEN AND I CAN'T GET UP!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is it I need Lifeline!
What an awesome weekend it was! I had spur-of-the-moment guest for the weekend, Leah. We just had a “girls” weekend and I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun!!!!!!! It was nice to laugh so hard that you sides hurt, beer comes out your nose and just do girly things. No Kids, No Men, No Drama… Sunday morning came way to quick!!

We have a snow “pool” going at work to see when this pile of snow will melt. At least this is one bracket you don’t have to rely on a team for. If you look closely at the photo, just above the top of the building, notice the roof. That is the 1st roof; it took a crew of 4 guys and two days, to get all the snow off. What we were left with is this HUGE pile of snow. When will it melt?
A quick no frills, no discussion, no questions, no blog posts……..Just to clarify, I am now very single. (I am saving that story for my best selling novel)
It seems now that I am single, old flames are “checking in” with me over the last couple of weeks. After I got done talking to an old flame last night, I do what most girls do after they take a trip down memory lane. Go look for those old photos of the past. That’s when I had my first AH, moment!As I am going through my box of photos, I see the stages of my life in one box. Childhood, teen years, old flames, marriage, raising kids, and then the divorce year.Staring at these photos, I wonder what other “life stages” will fill this box in the future?I get excited, nervous, scared, sad, eager, and realize at this very moment anything is better than the last stage of my life.WOW!!! AHHHHHHH!!!! Then followed by a massive EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!
As I was looking for a photo of myself on my computer to send to the old flame, I had another AHHH moment! I go online, yada, yada, yada. That’s when I find my ex’s personal profile. Of course I am inquisitive, I read what he has to say about himself to see if it is accurate. It is mostly true and some things a bit odd.Then AHHHH! I am really cool with this. My ex dating? Really not a problem! The poor guy needs a little advice from a woman on how to write an online profile.
However, I have just one question though?
“How does a person be spontaneous & sensible all at the same time?”
What? So you are just chillaxen (a cookism) on the couch with your girl. Then she jumps up, “Hey, lets do something crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wanna go to the library?”.
I have two things I do when I get stressed or upset. I either clean or bake. Not that I am great at either, but this time I decided to go the baking route with 40lbs of apples which Mr. P and I picked up at the local orchard. They were getting kicked around the kitchen by "Not Me," so I knew I had to use them soon. Cleaning would have been a waste of my time with the 7 kids around ( 8 when "Not Me" comes for a visit), so I set my goal on some apple pies, homemade crust, and maybe some applesauce.
I found an awesome crust recipe (I would share but I think this one I am going to keep to myself for awhile). It made the best, most flakiest crust that I have ever had. I really amazed myself on how great it was. Even Mr. P said it was the best he's ever had. I got Giggles & Klutz on the apple peeling craze with me. Klutz is recovering from a broken arm (a foot, too... hence Klutz), so this was just another great cheap therapy session for her. I would say those two 9 year old girls peeled at least 70% of my apples, and took a lot of pride in making sure there was as little skin & core as possible.
We did manage to make three huge batches of applesauce and canned 24 jars of it. A very loooonnnnggggg time ago, I got it through my head that I was going to learn how to can. (I watched my mom do it for years every summer, couldn't be that hard right?) I bought so many jars at garage sales, and only attempted to do it once. It didn't turn out very well, and I have not tried in almost 5 years, during which time the jars just seemed to multiply like rabbits. I am quite attached to my jars, and very rarely gave one up for ANY REASON. Now that I have them back in my possession, I just had to give it another try.
With some encouragement and tons of knowledge by a friend at work, I was on a mission. I did it! The best home-made applesauce EVER. The kids were amazed that they didn't have to go into the fridge, and that they were going to sit on a shelf in the basement. I even had Mr. P amazed at my Martha Stewart-like ability in kitchen.
Since things were going so well, and the walls were already sweating (and all of us too), I was going to finally dye that 1lb of Alpaca that I got on my 33rd birthday (Yes, over a year ago). Well, lets just say that didn't go so well. I just made a HUGE tangled ball. I am not sure how I am ever going to dye this yarn, or even be able to use it. I guess after another few years, I might figure it out.
Well, not that kind of stripper! You see, it all comes down to a simple shower curtain. (Just follow along. We will get to the stripper portion soon) We bought a new shower curtain from IKEA months ago. It was our (my) whole inspiration for the bathroom. If you were to come over and get a tour of our house, I would show you the shower curtain first so I could share my vision with you! Months have gone by, and I was starting to wonder if that shower curtain was going to be like that great outfit you bought on sale for when you lost 10 more pounds. Everyone knows that never works out! Mr. P and I finally gave up, and put up the shower curtain without re-doing the bathroom. Then in less than a week of looking at it, we were off to get paint.
This bathroom is just UGLY! And the ugly yellow is not only in bathroom, but we have the great pleasure of experiencing this pukey color in the kitchen and hallway. If you could just picture in your head for a moment, the color of your first morning pee mixed with bananas. That is the only way to describe the color!
A true test of a relationship is how well you work together to complete a project. I figured since the bathroom is small, it is a great first project to start with. We had the debate on whether we should sand the doors down and paint them, or strip & stain them. I decided it would be best to strip them and stain them. When I insisted that is what we (he) should do, I really thought I was going to do it. Nope! Mr. P on his day off stripped ALL day on those doors and he isn’t even close to being done. The bad thing is, we are on a deadline. In only 3 days we have all 7 kids back for a week. Keep in mind this is the only bathroom in the house. Those doors need to be back on by then, or there will be total anarchy in the house for the next week. Just like everything Mr. P does, those doors have to be perfect! I guess I know what we are doing for the next few days.
I hope this warning will save just one person. Never start a project when you are sick! My sinus infection turned into walking pneumonia, and painting should be the last thing you do. I am a messy painter, and Mr. P has made it very clear he is picky when it comes to edges. Knowing this, I was going to try to be the neatest painter ever! In my head I could picture myself doing all the right things. I just didn’t think it would involve coughing, Kleenex, and snot dripping into the paint. I never knew that when you sneezed into the paint tray it would create splatter against the wall! Believe me, it does!!!!! Now, if the splatter look was what we wanted, I would be all set! I spent more time cleaning up my splatter than I did painting the ceiling. Tomorrow I am going to start the trim. I think I should go pick up a mask for myself. Max wanted to help me paint!
I am sad that Summer is officially over, and we are onto Fall. I will miss lying around the pool, chillin’, doing some Suck & Blows, and going to bed as the birds wake up. Overall, this past summer was a BLAST! Tons of memories, and tons of FUN.
Our summer of 2007 will long be remembered by the following phrases…
10. What do you think is going on at that end??? 9. I am such a girl…. (Thanks to the wrong medication!) 8. Her- We got Skool’ed! Him- Did you HEAR me?? I almost DIED at work! 7. Not ME! 6. Believe me. I AM going to cheat on you. Someday, somehow. It WILL happen. 5. I need a shower. I’m going to take the Harley for a wash. 4. We’re gonna do WHAT??!! Are we going to get arrested? 3. She broke what? Again? 2. I see DRUNK people. (Drum roll, please) And the #1 Phrase of Summer 2007….. 1. THANK YOU, Sheboygan!!! x2
OK… I know this is all just so random to any of you who were not there to hear these phrases in context. I do promise I will catch up on my writing, and explain each one of these. VERY FUNNY! Stay tuned…
I had to share this YouTube with you... This so ME!
