DATE: Friday, March 23, 2012

BLOGGY MOM MISSION: My most unhealthy habit.

I crave a sloppy hamburger, so I either go to Culvers and get a double with cheese and fries, or to Burger King for the whopper with cheese and fries. Or the jalapeno poppers from Arby's... the large order.

SO bad... but SO good!!!!

Blog Dare March 22 Prompt

Thursday, March 22, 2012  - Wearing pajamas in public...
I guess it has to depend what type of pajamas... I am a mom, I guess you won't need to worry about me running out in my Fredrick's of Hollywood teddy set.

But then again, you might see me run out to the garage in my oversize t-shirt.

The closest I have gone to running out in public in my pajamas is wearing my lounge pants and t-shirt, with flip flops to the grocery store.

Remember, I'm a mom, you run on adrenaline, not style!

Struggling to fit in... and

This has been along week and I feel like a bull in a china shop... there is so much going on around me and it is making me spin uncontrollably. I don't know which way I am going or when all this will stop. I do know there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but it's one LONG f'n tunnel! I feel like I'm struggling. I am fighting to keep my head above water to keep myself from drowning. Have you ever noticed that when there is light at the end of the tunnel, and you can see it, every one of those small pot holes you used to walk over suddenly seem to be everywhere and it's getting pretty frustrating constantly having to walk over or around them. When you suddenly know the little things are not right... it makes the whole situation out of sorts. When you are in a comfort zone, nothing is too major, you live with it, do what you have to, and continue to move forward. When you make that move, everything so small is a pain and pisses me off. I don't know what way I am going anymore...

Just Pinning

Lunchtime... I'm a nut case... admit it!

Source:  Pinterest

Okay, I am a nut case... gonna just have to admit it.

I sit here at my desk, as lunchtime rolls around.
I don't know what I want. Do I really need anything?
I really shouldn't spend the money. But I do have a few dollars till payday.
Where should I go?

I get in the car...
Do I want to run to the store or do fast food?
I am soooo craving a burger... I haven't had one in a while.
But then again, a burrito or nachoes sound really good too.

I don't know...
Maybe I will just go to the store and get a salad.
It's better than a burger.
I really shouldn't have the calories.
I really don't need the calories and fat.
The thought of how many drive me crazy.
I didn't check on line to see how bad the burger would be.
I can't just have a plain burger, but the calories will kill me.
I DON'T need them...
But that burger sounds so yummy.
I do have to eat something though.

I stop at the grocery store...
and get a salad...

And then I go back to work...
Same thing I have done the last three days...

Like I really needed to think about it...

I am such a dork!

Check out this I found

Tastefully Simple

I am not sure how many people have tried Tastefully Simple,
but it is AWESOME!

Random Saturday

Today is Saturday... again.
Last night, or yesterday, we got snow... yes, snow... in March... in Wisconsin... SURPRISE!
Anyway, I cleaned off the car this morning and my son was going to shovel - he gets paid for it.
I really think we need to definite the word "shovel"... such as... more than a path from the door to the driveway, more than a path down the porch steps, more than TO the driveway and then out to the sidewalk... skipping the WHOLE driveway in between. Yes, he shoveled the path on the sidewalk, walked across the snow-covered driveway, and shoveled a path on the sidewalk. What part of this just seems WRONG?
So, guess who SHOVELED the DRIVEWAY, and DIDN'T get paid?
Can ya guess? You know who it was? Any clue...
Yup, sure as hell wasn't him!
