BlackFriday shopping..... ARE YOU CRAZY?????

Shopping on Black Friday to me as insane as walking into a lions den.

WOULD YOU WILLING WALK INTO ONE? HECK NO...

so why for the love of everything sweet and innocent would you put yourself into that?

Now I have a secret.... I HATE SHOPPING.... I am sooo not kidding. My mommy and all my friends can vouch for me. Shopping to me is a waste of time.
First I don't have the patience to sit there and look through all the stuff. BORING....

second I hate the price of things. I mean I look at the price of something and think. GOOD GRAVY ARE THEY INSANE?

I mean take these darn ZHU ZHU things they are little stuffed hamsters that move.
YIPPEE ( note the sarcasm )
and folks are lining up like fools and paying ridicules amounts of money for them.... here is an idea,
GO BUY A LIVE ONE THAT MOVES FOR 3.99 and then you don't have to fight all the other mental patience out there looking for them.

SO this leads me to the whole shopping on Black Friday... ( now when my mom is in town she DRAGS me out in the Gosh Forsaken town at O GOSH THIRTY to get the deals
( I do it for 2 reasons. 1 I love my mom and she likes to be one of those said mental patience and 2 she has not idea her way around Waco so I become the driver. )

But to actually be one of those mental patience that think
GEE I WANT TO GO OUT SLEEP DEPRIVED AND ALREADY MOODY AND STAND IN LINE IN THE COLD JUST SO I CAN RUN INTO THE STORE, FIGHT OVER A STUPID TOY, THEN STAND IN LINE AGAIN TO PAY FOR THAT STUPID TOY ALL SO I CAN SAVE 5 DOLLARS OR HOWEVER MUCH IT IS.
I can honestly say has NEVER crossed my mind....

SO to all you Crazy fools that actually got up or stayed up to do that... KUDOS TO YOU.... I will enjoy the shopping experience from the comfort of my home in my Jammie's and fuzzy slippers drinking a nice hot cup of coffee and using a clean bathroom and the ONLY fight I may have would be with the dogs to get OFF me.

NOW THAT'S MY KIND OF SHOPPING.....

Not my normal posts

I know that I try and have all my post be lite hearted and fun. ( or atleast that my goal ) but today's is going to be a simple short post with a very powerful message.
I am a member of Blog Frog. Its a site where bloggers like me go and chat. Well there is one group that I am a member of that had a post that moved me.

This lady that I ask you all to go read about needs prayer, she is what I call a MAMA BEAR.. You don't mess with her kids and NOTHING stops her. Until now. She had a stroke and she needs prayer,


please read and Pray, then forward her link on your blog. I know that with all Ya' all's help we can get some serious prayers for her.

Elf on the Shelf

Do you have this little guy roaming around your house? Do you know where he will be next?


For those of you that have NO idea what I am talking about allow me to introduce to you
ELROY,
OUR ELF.

Elroy as the boys named him came to live with us last year. He is a cute little guy that likes to keep the boys in line and hide all over the house.

You see Elroy is a spy for the big guy in Red. Every night he magically goes to the North pole and lets Mr. S ( for little eyes that may be reading ) and tells Mr. S what Logan and Brae have been up to that day.

then when he comes back home he likes to hide in a different spot. ( this the boys find fascinating and love to look for him every morning. )

now one never knows were Elroy may appear. The tree, the clock, the chandelier, on top of the valance, or in the bathroom. ( this was not a happy place per the boys. HE MIGHT SEE THEIR PRIVATES. =)

So as Thanksgiving approaches I know little Elroy will come back from the Great North to grace us with his presence and spy on the boys for a few weeks.

So watch out. You never know where he will pop up again.

Tired eyes and sweet smelling hugs from my monkeys

This is Thankful Thursdays. ( thanks to Lisa Curcio at Welcome to the nut house )

this is what I am thankful

Tired eyes. Why you ask? well when I have tired eyes I know that I have them becuase I was blessed to be awoken last night by my littlest monkey needing a drink of water, then scared of something and finally because his glow baby was to bright.

I am thankful for their sweet smelling hugs that when they wrap their arms around me I know that it will only be a matter of time before they are too big for my lap and for hugs.

I am Thankful for laundry, and a messy house. This means the Lord has blessed us with the cloths we need and a house we call a home where my boys are safe and loved.

These are a few things I am thankful for.

Have you stopped today to think about what you are thankful for?

The Lord don't like UGLY!!!!

This is what I tell my boys when they are mean and say mean things to each other or their friends.
Now
WHY DO I NOT PRACTICE WHAT I PREACH?

I am a mom that LOVES her boys more than life itself. ( I know all moms are like this. )

But I find that I talk to other peoples kids with patience, and understanding. Then with my boys I lose my temper and yell at them. I have even called them names out of anger. ( I KNOW!!! )

What is wrong with me? What is wrong when it becomes acceptable to talk to others with a sweet tongue and say mean hurtful things to our loved ones?

I HATE THIS ABOUT MYSELF and am going to make a real effort NOT to talk to my boys this way and to hold my tongue and be ALOT more patient.

Lord BE WITH ME AND HELP ME.....

The SHELF.. Ya you know the one.

Well that's how my last week went. Oy Vey....
Last week was nothing more than one big BLUR... I know that somewhere in last week. I raised 2 boys, drove the boys from here to there and everywhere.. did school work with the oldest. worked, shopped, ate, slept, and I am 99% sure I actually used the bathroom once or twice, ( at least I'M HOPING I DID. )

So lets see, what all interesting things have happened in my life.

I had to wear a heart monitor for 48 hours. AND WOW that was interesting to say the least.

I joined Scentsy and have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to get things situated for my first show. Which by the way I think it went pretty darn good. ( just a FYI.. in case you are new to this blog and don't know me. Let me just tell you know. I AM HOOT.. really I am... I am a darn funny girl. I think that is my gift from the Lord )

Logan and Brae both had soccer games.
I worked my hiney off. ( which I have been told, that for being a fat girl. I have a cute putootie )
Oh and I went to a tastefully simple party. It was fun and OH MY HEAVENS... YUMMY, If you have never been to one I highly recommend you go to one or have one, I mean for nothing else. Its great fellowship and yummy samples.

Oh and one more important thing. THE SHELF....

Now if you are unaware of THE SHELF allow me to explain it.

The Shelf is what we ladies with, well how do I say this... YOU KNOW THE saying
FLAUNT EM IF YA GOT EM

You know what I am talking about YES BOOBS. to most of us they are just THERE. well I admit I USE to have rather perky pretty ones. Then I had kids, Nursed the kids and now unless I pay good money for a bra to hold those babies up, they are just deflated looking balloons.

Well these darn deflated balloons are what we ladies call THE SHELF. Now this SHELF is a real pain in the behind when your trying to eat. It never fails. I eat and I spill.
Now I am not dumb. ( shhhshh!! I am not. stop laughing. ) I know spilling food and having boobies is in no way related, but gosh darn it. I eat. I have boobs and I spill. So in my little head
I WANT TO BELIEVE THAT I AM NOT A SLOB, AND THAT ITS BECAUSE OF MY BOOBIES AKA THE SHELF THAT I SPILL.
so leave me alone and let me live in my own crazy mixed up world. hehehe

So there you have it ladies. You have now had your Bobbie AKA shelf lesson for the day.
Don't you all feel so much better knowing that when you spill it is in no way YOUR FAULT. it is your shelf. I swear it has a gravitational pull that forces your food there. You can no more change this natural phenomenon than the weather. So you can now hold your head up high and proud and know. YOU ARE AMONG FRIENDS.

ALL HAIL THE SHELF....

OK now I am going back to my little hidey hole.

I am working on it

ANY IDEAS?

Computer savy? I THINK NOT!!!

Ok when it comes to puters ( this is what I call computers ) I can check my email, browse, jump from site to site, copy and paste, create a blog ( although I still am not liking the look of mine ) and I can post.

But if you mention HTML's I have to stop myself from wanting to crawl into the fetal position and cry... I get soooo annoyed with what I like to call my STUPIDNESS.( which should be enough to show you I DOUBT THIS IS EVEN A WORD. )

( Darling hubby says I am not stupid, I know I am not, but man I get frustrated. I mean HOW ON EARTH can I NOT grasp all this? )

Like right at this moment I had to post on BF on how to make a darn button for my blog. ( I am actually hoping and praying that one of my sweet BF chippies will take pity on me and make me one. HINT HINT )

You see I am a very busy mom. But hey Who's NOT? I homeschool 2 boys, I run said 2 boys all over carnation, I work outside the home 3 days a week. I sell amazing children's books, take care of 3 dogs. 2 cats and did I mention running the boys all over carnation?

Well I added ANOTHER title to my name. ( although I am waiting for that crown that says QUEEN MOMMY seeing how I AM... hehehe )

I am now a Scentsy Consultant and LOVE it. or should I say LOVE THEM... you see if you do not know what Scentsy is, allow me to inform you. They are these amazing wick-less, smokeless, flame-less candles.
You say

"HOW CAN THAT BE? HOW CAN THEY BE FLAME-LESS AND BE CANDLES?"

well let me tell you.
THEY USE LOW WATTAGE LIGHT BULBS. and they smell HEAVENLY...

So with all these new titles I need buttons and I CAN"T for the life of me figure them out. GRRRR!!!

SO I ask. all my mommy chippies HOW ARE YOU FIGURING THESE ALL OUT..; share with me your knowledge, be my YODA and teach me your ways as a Computer JEDI.....

This is kinda a given

Well seeing how Fort Hood has been all over the news, and I live 40 min from there. I guess its kinda a given that I post about it.

This hits home for alot of us here in central Texas. I get families all the time here at the museum that either the mom or dad are stationed there. Its so incredibly sad, I mean how on earth can anyone wake up and decided

TODAY I AM GOING TO KILL AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE?
I mean REALLY, WHO DOES THAT?
CRAZY, UNSTABLE, MENTAL FREAKS.. THAT'S WHO....
When I heard about this I instantly called my darling hubby and asked about our nephew, ( he was based there. ) Thankfully He recently got out of the army. ( I guess I need to be better updated about family members, )
I hope and pray that the rest of the folks that were injured will recover and be back with their families soon.
For those that lost a family member My DEEPEST SYMPATHY goes out to you.
I pray that one day, There will be NO violence. ( hey I can pray right? )

Take II ( thats 2 for my uneducated chippies )

Well If you are an avid reader ( which YOU SHOULD ALL BE.. iF NOT, SHAME ON YOU. = )

then you all remember the dreaded corn maze incident ( I blogged about it a week or so again. ) But if you are not one of my groupies. ( again I highly recommend that you become one. ) Let me give you a brief re-cap

small bladder, corn maze, mud, and dark.

There now that you all remember I thought I would tell you all about today

WE WENT TO THE SAME PUMPKIN PATCH, AND YEP... YOU GUESSED IT. WE GOT LOST ALL OVER AGAIN IN THE SAME DARN MAZE. ( CURSE YOU MAZE ) (shaking my fist in the air at it, )

Now I know what you are all thinking.

"why on earth would you go back?"
well let me tell you why.

It was a pre-scheduled field trip that our homeschool group had planned.

So here it is a nice 78 degrees. Sun is shinning and the ground is dry and we go to the infamous patch. I decided seeing how I DID NOT HAVE TO USE THE LITTLE GIRLS ROOM. AND IT WAS NOT DARK, and I WAS WITH WOMAN ( which lets face it; WE have a better sense of direction than a stinky ol man. ) I mean come on.... whats the worst that can happen?

We enter and believe you me. I let everyone of the woman know in advance that I had been there and we DID get lost, so don't count on me for help.

After about 40 min and many arrows made from dried corn husks WE FOUND OUR WAY OUT...

I would like to proudly proclaim that this maze WAS my Everest and I CONQUERED IT....

SO as the title states IT WAS MY TAKE II...

Now only if in real life I could have DO overs, I soooo could accomplish so much more.

But for now I GO TO BED WITH A SMILE ON MY FACE KNOWING... I AM WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR!!!!!!

I am OFFICALLY OLD

There are alot of things that make one feel old. For example:


-When you are called MAM by a pimply teenage boy at the local Hop & Shop ( I doubt this is an actual store, but it sure is fun to say. )

-When your children ask you if you were alive during the first Thanksgiving, ( yes I was asked this )

-And now I can say I AM SO OLD THAT I HAVE BEEN ALIVE TO SEE A TV SHOW RECYCLED...

Yes folks I was alive back in the day when the very first V was on the tube. Back in the 80's. And I can honestly say that back in the Big Haired, Bangle wearing Jelly bracelet having, Madonna worshipping, Micheal Jackson crushing days, DID I EVER think that I would live to see this particular TV show be REPEATED.. Oy VEY... DO I feel old.

So I decided to pull up my big girl panties ( or old lady panties that I wear ) and sit through the pilot episode with my little men. Hoping that one day in the near future my boys can say
WAY BACK IN THE DAY WHEN I WAS A CHILD I WATCHED THIS SHOW WITH MY FOLKS...

AHHHHHH!!!! payback, one can hope.

SO are you all feeling old now too?

The Wind in my sails is GONE....

Have you ever been so sure about something?
Have you ever found that the thing you were so Certain of was well Not all you thought?

Well today I found that very thing out.

You see I like to think of myself as a down to earth kinda chippie. I like to think that most people are good honest folks. And I still believe for the most part they are.

If you read my blog you know a few things about me

1- I am honest (almost to a fault )

2- I will call it as I see it. ( This can get me into trouble at times )

3- My kids ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO ME... NO ONE and I mean NO ONE messes with my kids.
( I like to tell folks. " If you mess with my kids I will make a mama bear look like a witty bitty putty tat )

4- I am a new Christian ( only 5 years ) and I try every day to live a Christian life. ( but this does not mean I don't fall back into my old ways )
by that I mean I CAN BE A NASTY VINDICTIVE CHIPPIE ( I am so not proud of this and fight it daily, but its true, I can slip back into that mood in a second)

So with all this I get frustrated when I feel I have been lied to or mislead.

I ask. WHY? WHY do folks do dishonest and hurtful things? I mean do they get a thrill, a rush from it?

For most of you that read this I am certain you will have an idea of what I am talking about. For others you may read this and think
"WOW, SHE DONE LOST HER MIND" ( and you would be right. )

SO all I ask of my chippies ( for those of you that are not certain what a chippie is. They are MY GIRLS, MY FRIENDS, MY BESTIES. )

Be honest with me at all times. I am VERY THICK SKINNED I PROMISE YOU WILL NOT HURT MY FEELINGS.


And remember..... It takes 3 licks to get to the center of the tootsie roll pop.

AND THE WINNER IS...........

Well first off thank you all for playing my game. You all had great guesses but ONE of you guessed it right FIRST. So I have to go with the one that guessed it FIRST....

So with out Further A-DO ( is this even a word? )

DRUM ROLL PLEASE............







The answer was MILK DUDS... I have no idea why I only eat them at Halloween ( maybe cause I tend to pull a filling with them and figure one Dentist appointment a year is all I can afford. )
SO now Jamie let me know if you have a Books A Million Or a Barnes and Nobles so I can get your Gift Card to you. Also i will need your addy of course.
Again I thank you all for playing and You never know when the next fun give away will be.
HERE IS A HINT
IT WILL BE ABOUT SOMETHING I POST ON.... you will need to read daily to learn as much about me as possible. ( besides I LIKE the attention. I know I am an attention hog. )
