LEAVE ME THE FRICK ALONE!!!
So at my leisure I have used these videos and have had some results. Mostly just an increase in energy level, but I gotta start somewhere, no? They're verrrry easy and I don't feel like Bambi on ice when I'm Walking Off the Pounds.
Anyway if you're looking for something uberintro level give these DVDs a try. I got mine through my DVD swap thing-a-ma-jig, but I'm sure they have them on half.com or ebay.

Whacha think? I replied to the evite that I'd go and I do need a night out desperately, but I don't want to get backed into a corner about how the program could be different or other sensitive topics. Papa thinks I'm worrying waaaay too much and I should go without over analyzing it. After all, he points out, I shared a bottle of wine (or two) with J-boy's teacher earlier this year and lived to tell about it. Yeah, I lived to tell about the wine drinking session, but the whole office staff knew about it the next day and I lost my Professional Mommy reputation. *sigh*

Hmmm. This was kind of a toughie for me. I am tempted to put my kids toys up here because God knows they're all over the flipping house. Still this blog is supposed to be more about me. Boring! Okay, so here's what I came up with
My toys Just a small sampling off all the scrapbooking, card-making, paper crafting crap I own and use. I could've said this was my secret, but really it's just more of a sickness and Papa knows all about it so it ain't much of a secret.
My Secret: My comadre tells me these socks are creepy. I think they're fabulous! I fully expect Kami will fug-flog me for these, but they're so warm and cozy, dammit it's worth the price. I have tile in my home. I am a native Texas with thin blood (thought that's the only thing thin about me). I get cold easily! I need something to keep my tootsies warm.
My eyes: I do NOT like this assignment. My eye area is in serious need of a brow wax and pluck to speak nothing of the tiny crinkles forming around said eyes. So you've been warned...

Fine thinks Papa. Then he tells them they better hurry up and make up or he's going to make them hug, say I love you AND sing the Barney "I love you, you love me" song.
They're now playing nicely in the living room.
I had to leave the kitchen table before I busted out laughing while Papa was doing a fine job at being the disciplinarian. I wonder what he'll come up with when they're teenagers. You know he does love his petty tortures.

I. Love. This. Show.
Papa and I Netflixed the whole first season and have spent our last two weekends watching 25 episodes to get caught up. He got the podcast of the first 11 episodes of this season and we're watching them on the computer one episode a day.
DO NOT TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS.
I am DVR-ing (is that a word??) all the episodes I don't have downloaded and I am determined to be caught up by the time the season finale parties begin.

The thing is he's so fragmented about what he wants to do. One day he wants to be a business man, the next day a clown. Okay, not really, but you get my drift. He's just not focused. Every time some new idea comes up he's hopping down that bunny trail. I want him to pick something and stay with it. I would prefer he stay out of social services as it pays for crap, but I don't think he'll ever get this whole son-of-a-preacher-man identity out of his system. His desire to help the masses is often frustrating.
Maybe it's a mid-life crisis or something? Fine, but get over it already!

When Geoffrey came to say hi to the kids J-boy went up to give him a big hug. Then J-boy pulled back and said to the big guy, "oh, sorry about the drool there, Geoffrey". Nice. This comment was a source of great amusement to the birthday boy's dad. At least J-boy was polite as he left his DNA all over the mascot, no?

We came back from the Pinewood Derby (a Scout thing for those of you not in the know) and the dogs were gone. Just gone. Hmmm.
Papa had left a note on the neighbors door that very gently outlined the issue saying he just wanted to bring it to their attention. He didn't sound at all pissed (unlike my rantings) and his tone was quite neighborly. He offered to talk with them about it in person or over the phone, but so far they've declined.
Now the dogs are gone.

I know it's better to do it now. I know he'll feel better once it's done. I know, I know, I know...
I also know I'm scared out of my pink Nikes.

Papa called animal control today and they said he could talk to the butt neighbor, but if it wasn't resolved over the weekend they were going to send someone out on Monday. He went round yonder and left a note to call him, but so far nada. Just more bark, bark, yelp kinds of shit.
That dog is fucking nuts. Seriously he goes bat-shit if he hears any movement. My boys go to our backyard at will so it sets the dogs off. Hell this morning the dogs were barking while I was drinking my coffee and checking out my Statesman.
I hope this doesn't become a huge battle, but it's not nice to those dogs (especially the one cowering in fear of the other one) and it sure as hell isn't nice for us to listen to it all day. Damn butt neighbors.

It's Friday! So time for another intstallment of SPF brought to you by Kristine. Today's assignment is stuff of reality t.v. - makeover style. This time we pay homage to our Texas Longhorns, National Champions, thankyouverymuch.
Here are the margaritas we drank from kick off to half time. Orange margaritas taste twice as yummy laced with victory.
We're getting closer to half time here and I'm feeling very burnt orange. Fortunately I was not the one driving home so I was able to partake of all the margaritas I desired (and clearly I desired a few).
MY NEW FAVORITE THING
Doesn't this bag kick ass? The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize. Okay, ordinarily I don't buy into that hooey, but how can you *not* believe in that statement when you look at this fun little holder of crap?
Did you play?
