Who is this woman?? (I had to share this!)  

Monday, October 29, 2007

Even though this lady is residing in MY house, she may at some time appear in yours. Be Alert! A very weird thing has happened. A strange old lady has moved into my house. I have no idea who she is, where she came from, or how she got in. I certainly did not invite her. All I know is one day she wasn't there, and the next day she was!

She is a clever old lady and manages to keep out of sight for the most part, but whenever I pass a mirror, I catch a glimpse of her. And, whenever I look in the mirror to check my appearance, there she is hogging the whole thing, obliterating my gorgeous face and body. This is Very Rude! I have tried screaming at her, but she just screams back.

The least she could do is offer to pay part of the rent, but no. Every once in a while, I find a dollar bill stuck in a coat pocket, or some loose change under a sofa cushion, but it is not nearly enough.

I don't want to jump to conclusions, but I think she is stealing money from me. I go to the ATM and withdraw $100, and a few days later, it's all gone! I certainly don't spend money THAT fast, so I can only conclude the old lady is pilfering from me. You'd think she would spend some of that money to buy wrinkle cream.

And money isn't the only thing she is stealing. Food seems to disappear at an alarming rate - especially the good stuff like ice cream, cookies, and candy. She must have a real sweet tooth, but she'd better watch it, because she is really packing on the pounds. I suspect she realizes this, and to make herself feel better, she is tampering with my scales to make me think I am putting on weight too!

For an old lady, she is quite childish. She likes to play nasty games, like going into my closets when I'm not home and altering my clothes so they don't fit. And she messes with my files and papers so I can't find anything. This is particularly annoying since I am extremely neat and organized.

She has found imaginative ways to annoy me. She gets into my mail, newspapers, and magazines before I do and blurs the print so I can't read it. And, she has done something really sinister to the volume controls on my TV, radio, and telephone. Now, all I hear are mumbles and whispers.

She has done other things, like make my stairs steeper, my vacuum heavier and all the knobs and faucets are harder to turn. She even made my bed higher so that getting into and out of it is a real challenge. Lately, she has been fooling with my groceries before I put them away, applying glue to the lids, making it almost impossible for me to open the jars.

She has taken the fun out of shopping for clothes. When I try something on, she stands in front of the dressing room mirror and monopolizes it. She looks totally ridiculous in some of those outfits, plus, she keeps me from seeing how great they look on me.

Just when I thought she couldn't get any meaner, she proved me wrong. She came along when I went to get my picture taken for my driver's license, and just as the camera shutter clicked, she jumped in front of me!

I hope she never finds out where YOU live!

Working at home...  

Sunday, October 28, 2007

I am a stay at home mom plus I work at home. I am constantly writing on the computer and going to various websites to help me make ends meet. Is there an easier way to do this. Yes, there probably is, but for now this works for me.

I start my day at 7 am. I get breakfast for the kids and keep my eyes closed. Then I go to the bathroom and brush my teeth. Then I get on the computer I check my emails first. There is usually hundreds waiting for me. I delete all the ones I don't have time to read. Then I log onto blogger.com to update my blogs. I am rocking in the celebrity blog world. That's why I'm not here much anymore. I have been working on promoting my blog.

Then I think about doing my paid work. I have these little freelance jobs that don't pay much but they are something and they are giving me experience writing. I write articles for a parenting site, I am rewriting a manuscript for someone who is trying to write a manual for parents to help their kids off of drugs and I am doing blog comments under some one else's name. These don't seem like a lot but I takes patience to go through with them.

Then lunch time hits for my son. I make it at 11 for him because we leave for the bus at around noon. He always watches his Rescue Heroes during lunch!! I take him to the bus at around noon and when the bus comes I can start my afternoon for myself. I go to the grocery store and buy the little things we might need for supper. Then I go home and sit in front of the computer again. It seems like most of the day I sit here and really nothing ever gets done.

I go back out at around 3 pm to get the kids. My afternoon seems to fly by. Then the kids go outside when they get home. They are always wanting to play outside! I make supper and get them in. That is something in itself!!!

But soon they unwind and its time for bed. They like to cuddle with the cats of course!!

My Darn Garage....  

Friday, October 26, 2007

The garage...you know, you see it everyday yet it is probably the most neglected places in your house? But why? Garages are meant to be loved and lived in...

If it is cluttered, like mine always is, get a garage storage system! I looked online and found the site CarGuyGarage.com. They can help you enjoy your garage the way its supposed to be enjoyed.

Wouldn't it be nice if you could finally send your husband into the garage to do his wood working?? The garage storage system can help him make it just the way he wants it!!!

I'm kinda down today...so it's time for a quiz...

You Should Be an Artist

You are incredibly creative, spontaneous, and unique.
No one can guess what you're going to do next, but it's usually something amazing.
You can't deal with routine, rules, or structure. You're easily bored.
As long as you are able to innovate and break the rules, you are extremely successful.

You do best when you:

- Can work by yourself
- Can express your personality in your work

You would also be a good journalist or actor.

What did yours say??? Come back and tell me!!

We have snow this morning!!  

Thursday, October 25, 2007

Alberta has the craziest weather....let me show you....

Yesterday it was 23C...it was amazing...I was ready to take my shorts out if it wasn't for the fact I haven't shaved my legs I would have worn them...but then it started to get really windy. It was cool to hear all the leaves blowing around though.

When I was putting my son to bed...he told me that he was scared of the wind. I said don't be...that wind means its going to snow. I knew the sound of the wind but it was way to warm to have snow...so I told him anyways.

Well when we got up this morning...there was SNOW!! I couldn't believe it! But it will all be gone by the end of the day...

He broke my toe....  

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

Yup, my son broke my toe. He was really really really hyper this morning and he was trying to rip an important piece of paper so I lunged at him and fell off my chair. It hit the metal part where my wheels on my chair are. And that was the end of that! It hurts so much. I have broken a toe before and there is NOTHING they can do for you. It is puffed up and feels like the stay puff marshmallow man!!!!

My son's hero is Criss Angel!  

Monday, October 15, 2007

I am a huge fan of Criss Angel's. My family knows that too. I am always showing them the tricks that Criss reveals on his show. My son always is amazed when he sees I can pull one over on him. Today, my son was in the bath. He says look mom...I can walk on water...just like that guy. Well the only guy I know that can walk on water is Criss Angel.

My mouth dropped open. I said...you wanna be like Criss honey? He says...I wanna walk on water like him. I thought it was amazing that he had remembered who was the guy that he had seen walk on water. He just kept saying it over and over again. I thought it was cute.

That darn packaging kids toys are in...  

Saturday, October 13, 2007

Okay, I hate to say it but sometimes I hate the holidays! I hate having to put together the toys that day on Christmas....and today reminded me of that. My son's birthday is in November and then we have Christmas and then my daughter's birthday is like a week after Christmas. We get used to a lot of presents around here and I have to get used to putting them all back together.

Today, we went to Toys R Us. My husband promised my son a toy...well you know you can't go in that store and not walk out anyway. There just happened to be a blowout sale that day too. It was so busy...I never saw so many screaming kids.

It took me a degree in engineering to put it together. Why??? Oh why do they make everything so hard to put together....grrrr.
Looks amazing doesn't it?? NOT!! Looks nice and cheap!

I got a funny letter in the mail today!  

Friday, October 12, 2007

I love getting the mail!! I have always sat by my window waiting until the mail man came and then ran to my mailbox. I don't know why but I love getting something in a little box that is a surprise...may be that's what it is. Now usually my mail box is full but lately not so much...

Today though I got the funniest letter in the mail...well I hope you find it funny too...

So in Canada they have this program that they send a letter to you to remind you to go for your yearly...you know...But I really didn't need the reminder because here you can't get your prescription for your birth control renewed unless you have the yearly 'tests' done.

I have never been a fan of these...and I am sure you will all agree with me...especially the men...(cough) LOL...I guess it could be worse for us women. But I digress...so here's what the letter says.

"PAP tests can prevent almost all cervical cancer by finding changes in the cells on your cervix early enough to be treated and cured.

Our records indicate that your last PAP test was more than 12 months ago..."

Okay, but this is where it is funny...I HAVE NO CERVIX!!! I looked all over the place for the number so I could call them and tell them to stop sending them to me... but I couldn't. So now every time I read this letter it is going to say...do you want cervical cancer?? If not get your butt to the doc's...I can't handle the pressure.

Will I tell them or will you??? LOL

Oh joy it's Thursday!!  

Thursday, October 11, 2007

I started a new job today. It is taking up all my online time and the pay isn't that good for the time its taking up. So I thought I would come and say hi to have a bit of a break before I go insane.

I went to the kitchen and I was thinking...why does our house go through so much milk and ketchup. I swear those are the things that go so fast!! It seems like every day I am out getting milk and we started buying our ketchup at Costco. It seems to last a bit longer. We so love that place.

I got some sleep last night and so did my son. But my husband complained that he couldn't sleep. I couldn't tell either way because I actually had a peaceful sleep without the kitten waking me up kissing my face! That is always a good sign. I wake up in the middle of the night and because I sleep on the couch (I'll save that story for another day) Milo can get to me. He kisses and kisses me. I am finally relaxing and letting him do it or else he just persists for hours!! So how is your day?

My crazy day...  

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

I am having a crazy day today! I got up at 5:30 am! Which is way too early to begin with! My son was coughing. He wakes up every morning like that lately and I can't figure it out. Anyways right away he takes me into the kitchen...I'm hungry mommy. I can't even open my eyes yet...and this morning I feel a cold coming on. I was up all night...going to the bathroom every 2 hours or at least it seemed that way. (No, I'm not pregnant...don't have those pieces anymore!) But there I was pouring Froot Loops into a bowl that I could hardly see. I just went right back to the couch and layed down while my son watched his cartoons and ate his cereal...

But after a bit...he says to me again...Mommy I'm hungry....(Yes...he loves to eat!) So there I am again in the kitchen squinting my eyes unable to even see the counter never mind find what he wants. I just tell him...go bug your sister. I go lay down and fall back asleep almost instantly. I can hear my kids in the background playing and that is all I need to hear to convince myself a nap is what I need. I sure needed more than that for later that is for sure.

My son has a lot of energy. How??? I wish I knew. He just started kindergarten this year and he hates it when he isn't at school. He gets bored so easily. I have gotten in the habit of having lazy days because some day I will have to enter the work force outside my home again. Right now I work at home, it's been good to be able to earn the extra money because right now we need it. But when my son starts grade 1, I know my life will be different.

I have convinced him to play his video games instead of throwing all my books around. I really hate that when he does that! But what can I say?? I'm a home mom...that has a job at home!
