I chanced upon this site from the bottom of an MSN....um...well, message screen!A Ditty 4 You
"High Priority" had me crying, I was laughing so hard.
A new use for dental floss
. I just eat it out of the pan I made it in. I'm THAT white-trashy.
BigK likes to sing songs! Most of the time it's at the top of his lungs, and in one falsetto note, but boy are they fun! Today it was "oh my word! oh my word! oh my word!" since we're teaching him to NOT say "oh my g--". LittleK had to join in, of course. He doesn't say the words, but his pitch and delivery were perfect. *sigh*
Day 5 of P-chan gone. Only 26 more to go. *sigh*
I got some greeting cards today for 97% off. Yep, that's right! 97%!!! Yeah, baby! The local Winn-Dixie store is closing, so getting rid of everything. Sure, some of the envelopes don't really match the mood of some cards, but whaddaya want for 7 cents?? The Sour Patch Kids I bought are so old they're not sour, but that's okay, too. I also bought some scrapbook-type page protectors for about a buck a set, that's super cheap. I'm very happy to spend money and save at the same time. In fact, I saved over $200 today! hehehehehehehe
My hair is being mean to me. If I wash it every day, it's limp and lifeless. But if I go more than 2 days without washing, it gets too much build-up. What's a girl to do?? Seriously! What?? I'll take suggestions! I am trying to grow it out, which is why I'm stressing. Otherwise I'd just get it chopped again, yay for spikey hair! And I just realized it will take all summer and then some for it to grow long enough for my plans to take over the world. Oh, wait, I just want to donate
it, that's right....
LadyEm just found out she's pregnant. That's her 4th in that many years. I keep telling her she's crazy. I'm concerned about LadyK's reaction, as she can't have kids but wants them. Especially since LadyK thought she was pregnant (and maybe she was), so was telling everyone "but don't tell anyone, okay?" And then she apparently miscarried. Back when I got pregnant with LittleK, I was dreading telling her, because I knew she would avoid me. And she did! But I was planning for that baby. LadyEm did NOT plan for this one. *sigh*
Okay, yawns abounding here! I should to to bed. But I probably won't. LOL Current Mood: melancholy

|bad salad, evil salad
tonight there was a potluck thing at the church. I'll tell more about it later, I'm sure, but right now I think I'm sick from the salad I ate. Did the hands that prepared it curse me? Looks like we'll never know!
Last week, I was extended the calling to be the Laurel and Mia Maid advisor in the Young Women program. I wanted to die laughing, but I said okay. I mean, what the freak?? I HATED the Young Women program, growing up.. HATED!!! HAAAATEEEEED! I wanted NOTHING to do with it. For those of you that don't know what it is, it's my church's auxiliary for teen womyn. For various and sundry reasons, I began to loathe the beings than infested my local church, and that spread to my hatred of the program as a whole... Well, God works in mysterious ways, eh?
earlier today, I tried yet again to "talk P-chan into" having one more child. He said no, I said yes, we yelled and I stomped off to do the laundry since he was packing for a work assignment. and THEN I went to the ill-fated church activity. was it the sugar? did they have too much sugar? was it the other kids? too little sleep? I was sure feeling that last one. Whatever the reason, my children exhibited more characteristics of demons than of angels. ugh! Okay, you win, P-chan. No more kids.
I'm surprised at how much apathy I have for other peoples' kids. Especially babies. I can't stand them. They're messy, they sometimes stink, and they're fussy. Why in the world do I want another one of those?? But alas, I still do. Mine are different. Mine have baby poo that smells like rice pudding, the drool is contained, and they only fuss when I'm not holding them. *please, please, sense the sarcasm and insane longing in my words* Yes, I want another one, demmit! And I'd like a girl! With dark hair! But with two older brothers, she wouldn't be a wimp! I would disabuse her of that in an instant. But anyway, why am I going on about this? I don't know either. I was supposed to be talking about how I don't like other kids. Actually, my apathy. I don't "not like" them, I just don't care for them. Kinda like the dude on Firewall who says, "I don't hate you...I just don't care about you." I couldn't stop laughing, and P-chan thought it was pretty funny, because that's how we are about some--nay, most--people.
Don't get me wrong, we have friends, but P-chan thinks most of them are just "friends for here" rather than "friends for life" or some such. I'm fiercely loyal to my good friends, though. Something of a paradox?
I just realized that Pepto Bismol could make me feel better. I'll try it. I don't want to hurl in my sleep, or be awakened by the urge in the middle of the night. yick!
Okay, so I couldn't find Pepto, but I found Publix (that's a local store) brand Pink Bismuth...ah, crap, what's the last word on the label?....Liquid. I was dismayed that it expired a year ago, but what they hay! Its flavor is perhaps not as strong as ole PB, but that's okay.
*about 5 minutes later*
I think the rumbly in my tumbly has gotten worse. The thought of puking makes me want to puke. Okay, I'll stop now. I won't tell you how this ends.
P-chan is (finally) on his way home from That Pizza Place. I will attempt to stay awake. by proof-reading this entry. hahahahahaha man, I'm tired.

I am so glad I don't use IE on a regular basis. In fact, when I opened it to use the link, I didn't recognize the toolbars installed. WHEN did those get installed?? Phish, anyone?
LittleK is officially obsessed with helicopters. I still don't understand how he said "helicopter" before "airplane" but whatever works. This morning he woke up, got out of bed, then walked to my room and climbed on the bed. When he realized I was awake, he smiled and said, "Mommy! Hand? Wann hoggogg!" Which means, "Mommy! Give me your hand! I want to take you to the fridge because I want a hotdog!" I told him he could have a waffle, so he danced out of the room singing, "waggle waggle!" Then he asked for juice and helicopters
BigK just decided he wants a hot Uncrustable sandwich. eeewww! Current Mood: awake

You're Love in the Time of Cholera!
by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Like Odysseus in a work of Homer, you demonstrate undying loyalty by
sleeping with as many people as you possibly can. But in your heart you never give
consent! This creates a strange quandary of what love really means to you. On the
one hand, you've loved the same person your whole life, but on the other, your actions
barely speak to this fact. Whatever you do, stick to bottled water. The other stuff
could get you killed.

at the Blue Pyramid.

Unhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don't understand our partner's requirements, or even our own. We all have a "love tank" that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.Take the quiz

|You Are Guinness|
You know beer well, and you'll only drink the best beers in the world.
Watered down beers disgust you, as do the people who drink them.
When you drink, you tend to become a bit of a know it all - especially about subjects you don't know well.
But your friends tolerate your drunken ways, because you introduce them to the best beers around.
well worth my time. ^.^

|music and musings
Listening to Cyndi Lauper's Twelve Deadly Cyns, and I had never heard her version of I Drove All Night. Surprsied me, since I thought it was an original Celine song. So I did what any person does when they encounter something wierd: I googled it. Here is what I found: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Drove_All_Night
Have you heard about the Star Wars TV show? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/film/4484915.stm
Mixed feelings...but warming up to it. Maybe it would be cool to have "special appearances" by Obi...maybe...Thanks for the link, Ocha!
I received a small statue from my dad, just after the birth of my fist son. It's a mother, father, and baby. I LOVE it! But some time ago, bigK knocked it down and the father's head fell off. LOL Hope that's not a sign and portent. Anyway, for a long time I just left the head off to the side because I'm too lazy to actually fix it. Well, now the head is missing. oops.
Judeo-Christian Ethics (The Golden Rule)
Essentially this ethical school of thought can be summed up in 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you'. Only do something to someone which you would like to have done to you in return. This is the ethical principal which is least prone to criticism.

I can't get Bebo to work, so here's my blog.
Well, okay, so for several weeks I was tired (as in falling asleep on the couch or in front on the *gasp* computer). So I went to the doc. She said it's because I have small children. ha-ha, no. Okay, so maybe I'm in a mild depression? Well, I did have some symptoms, but again I said haha, no. So I basically had to DEMAND blood tests. Anyway, the results are in and I'm anemic
because of low iron levels in my blood. FUN! Wait, no, it's not, that's right. Also, I am positive for the virus Epstein-barr (sp??), which is apparently linked to chronic fatigue. So, first line of business is to get my iron levels back to normal, which could take 2 months. Wake me up then.
At church, I'm now in charge of the Crafts & Scrapbooking group. I don't do crafts, so much to my delight, the ladies decided to focus on scrapbooking for the first few get-togethers. whew! That I can do! I shall impart my wisdom and perhaps some of the few metric tons of scrap-stuff I have (willfully) accumulated over the last 3 years. Has it only been that long? wow. Well, 3-1/2 now.
Still awaiting news on P-chan's orders. England or Italy may be on our horizon. And if we're not going anywhere, then I am going to DEMAND the newer housing. It was promised to us 6 months ago, and I think it's about darned time that we get it. I can't stand our puny 800 square feet anymore. When you consider that my friend is "paying" the same amount for over 1400 squares, well, I ask you, is that right? Heck no!
hmmm...I seem to be anger-venting. I hadn't realized I needed thatttttt. *ugh! my stupid stuttering keyboard!*
My "temporary" (I call it that because I do intend to lose the weight so the original will fit) wedding ring seems to be causing an allergic reaction because the silver plating seems to be wearing off. or something. Anyway, I have an angry red mark all around my finger, where the ring should be. I tried covering the offending parts with clear nail polish (something a sis recommended), but the nail polish melted in the hot Florida sun (er, sunset) and I need to use nail polish remover to get the gunk off my hand now. yuck.
Small-K said "all done" today. I love how he's trying new words all the time now! He cracks me up! :L His new favorite thing to do is wave good-bye to people. He ran after some squirrels today, growling...so I told him we don't growl at squirrels, we wave at them. So he started saying "hi" to all the squirrels at the park, and even waved bye when we left.
Big-K has a cold, and I told him he couldn't play outside because of it. He responded by screaming (with his voice cracking and all) "I'm not schick!" which was followed by a hacking cough. I finally relented when I realized he was just going to repeat it until he either threw up or ran out of voice.
Miss-L is being a royal pain in my butt. She refuses to do her chores, and instead ponders on the BIG question of the moment, "Who will I live with next?" This irks me greatly, because first, she won't do anything else. Second, she tells everyone we don't want her to live with us anymore. Third, and this has nothing to do with her, there are not a whole lot of family that will take her into their home. My oldest sister told me that she herself could not take Miss-L (I think she meant "would not" but whatever), and that Miss-L would be better off in a group home. DARN her! DARN her to HECK! Man, I swore in my head just then. Didn't you?
okay, enough ranting...I must save some for later...otherwise I would have nothing to write about. Because I'm not a happy person right now. >:(
love ya! :D

|how about a quiz? more?
Your results:You are Deanna Troi
|Leonard McCoy (Bones)
|James T. Kirk (Captain)
|An Expendable Character (Redshirt)
||You are a caring and loving individual.
You understand people's emotions and
you are able to comfort and counsel them.
Click here to take the "Which Star Trek character are you?" quiz...
18% Combativeness, 16% Sneakiness, 64% Intellect, 66% Spirituality
Brilliant and spiritual! You are a Mystic Theurge!
Score! You have a prestige class. A prestige class can only be taken after you�ve fulfilled certain requirements. This may mean that you�re an exceptionally talented person, but it probably doesn't.
The Mystic Theurge is a combination of a cleric and a mage. They can cast both arcane and divine spells, and are good at both, making them pretty terrifying on the battlefield. They have more raw spellpower than just about any other class.
You're both intelligent and faithful, but not violent or deceitful. I guess that makes you a pretty good person.
My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
|You scored higher than 2% on Combativeness|
|You scored higher than 8% on Sneakiness|
|You scored higher than 36% on Intellect|
|You scored higher than 87% on Spirituality|
|You Are Animal|
A complete lunatic, you're operating on 100% animal instincts.
You thrive on uncontrolled energy, and you're downright scary.
But you sure can beat a good drum.
|Your Candy Heart Says "Hug Me"|
A total sweetheart, you always have a lot of love to give out.
Your heart is open to where ever love takes you!
Your ideal Valentine's Day date: a surprise romantic evening that you've planned out
Your flirting style: lots of listening and talking
What turns you off: fighting and conflict
Why you're hot: you're fearless about falling in love
does this mean I get shares in Matsumoto Shave Ice?
|Your Japanese Name Is...|
|You Are Japanese Food|
Strange yet delicious.
Contrary to popular belief, you're not always eaten raw.
You may be smooshie and taste unnatural, but you're so darn cute.
|You Are Bobsledding|
You're not a world class athlete, but you are a world class maniac.
Your need for speed could have you blazing past the finish line!
|You Are Pecan Pie Soda|
Sweet, but totally nuts
I've been watching too much TV. Hazard of having cable, I guess. Food Network is my favorite, followed by HGTV and any channel with Law&Order or Charmed. I called them today, and they said they're not billing me...so I'll just enjoy the free cable while it lasts. yay for free TV!
Planning for the scrapbook expo at the end of March...appropriately called The Scrapbook Expo
. yeah, I like simple things. :) Trying to get a larger group, for more fun and spontaneity. Okay, the "spontaneity" would probably drive me nuts, but I'd like more than just ME to be going. And if R doesn't go, then all the better!
Have you signed up for MyPoints yet? what? you haven't? Drop me a line and I'll give you a referral! They send me emails, I click on the link, I get points, and then I redeem the points for certificates. I've earned gift certificates for Blockbuster, Wal*Mart, Target, Sharper Image, Home Depot, and Burger King. Most of the time I've just earned by clicking; I haven't signed up for a LOT of trials, but some sure make it worth it! Most of the stuff you're already thinking about trying/signing up for anyway. Why not get a bonus for it? It's my favorite "paid to read" program. :D
K and k both have ear infections. k had his 18-month checkup today. He's great! Capt---ooops, I mean MAJOR--W says he's not worried about k's speech, so no need for therapy for him. In a way, I'm sad about this, since K had so much fun during his speech therapy. But also, I'm glad, since that means he's got a good example by K. yay for older brothers!
I like my neighbors! M and her hubby J seem to like us, too! yay! P (my hubby) still considers himself socially awkward, but I think he's great. Tonight we hung out while J barbecued. Then M and I talked for a long time after everyone else turned in. lol yay for friends!

|fun fun fun
|What Your Underwear Says About You|
You like to think of yourself as innocent, even though you're not!
You're sexy, in that pinup girl, tease sort of way.
|Your Brain's Pattern|
You have a dreamy mind, full of fancy and fantasy.
You have the ability to stay forever entertained with your thoughts.
People may say you're hard to read, but that's because you're so internally focused.
But when you do share what you're thinking, people are impressed with your imagination.
right on! "I look good in green, but absolutely STUNNING in purple!" (extra hugs for anyone who can name the show and character that said it. Bonus chocolate if you know the name of the episode or season without looking it up!)
|Your Blog Should Be Purple|
You're an expressive, offbeat blogger who tends to write about anything and everything.
You tend to set blogging trends, and you're the most likely to write your own meme or survey.
You are a bit distant though. Your blog is all about you - not what anyone else has to say.

I am sad because she was my hero.
Ah, the Blame Game. Isn't it fun! I find the whole thing too depressing, and so have avoided the news.
I seem to be very emotional right now. You know, crying over the OnStar commercials, or sappy love songs. Methinks it's from hubby being away for 4 months, but who knows? I have a doctor's appointment Friday, so I'll ask about it.Starbucks and Scrabble, what could be better?The idea that started itHey, that's my town! :D
Maybe Ocha can answer the question posed here
Okay, okay, 'nuf 'bout that.
OH YEAH! P-chan comes home in less than a week! I am so happy and excited! :P :D XD :) (: C: CX d: I found that out about 5 days ago. Last night, P-chan's sarge (from here) called my cell to ask where I was. Well, I was on the way back from taking BigK to the doctor...seems that Sarge thought P-chan was coming home last night! After much excitement and many phone calls, we finally figured out that he's coming home next week. LOL That gives me more time to get things in order, like getting the car washed! XD
My friend AuntiEm decided to move herself (instead of waiting on the military's schedule) to the new house. I told her I thought she was crazy, but she's determined to have the house in order before SirDrake comes home. Today she is stressing 'cuz she can't find a weigh station for the U-haul. ugh!
Rumor came up that not only is P-chan's job re-opening for re-enlistment, but that bonuses might be re-instated. RUMOR! Uncomfirmed at this point. But it would make sense, as Hurricane Katrina has seriously disabled the base that is used to train....see?
I found this
on the contributors (I think
I sent in #1127
), as is my BFF (she's #175
, I think
she sent in #1175
)...(although I could have it backwards...). On an interesting note, this disappeared for several years, and one I later submitted is no longer on the list. I really like #1474

|the thunder rolls
Big storm last night. BigK asked, "What's that noise?" when we finally went to bed, so I told him it's thunder. His reply: "Is someone throwing bombs?" I was soooo stunned, I just stared at him for a second, then had to laugh so I didn't cry. "No, honey, it's thunder. Lightning is when it lights up, and the noise is thunder." "oooh!" Where in the world
did he get the idea that it was bombs
?? On the bright side (no pun intended) both he and I had a blast lighting the candles all around the apartment. I had to turn off the power strip for the compy and accoutrements, 'cuz the printer kept trying to start itself with a good cleaning after each power bump (kinda like a cat).
LittleK now calls me mama. yay! And if you say "no, no" then he shakes his head, and "yes yes" will make him nod his head. so cute! ^_^
P-chan is being promoted! Well, he passed the test anyway. He won't put on the new rank until about July next year. That means he moves up in the waiting list for re-enlistment. Don't know how far

Okay, I was tagged
Gotta answer the call of the tag!
Three nicknames: JulieBean, JulieBug, Julie Jo Bob May, The One Whose Butt Fell Off, The One Who Fits in a Glove Compartment, Scully
what? that's more than three? meh.
Three things I like about myself: sad that I actually need to THINK about this...My compassion, loyalty, and gift of discernment.
Three things I don't like about myself: My quick temper; my uncontrollable spending habit; my somewhat obsessive compulsive nature.
Three things that scare me: bugs, draft-type war, P-chan dying
Three everyday essentials: (in order) talk to P-chan, tell my kids I love them, check email. And when P-chan returns, scratch talking and add sex. mwahahahaha
Three things I'm wearing right now: clothes; Italian charm bracelet from Pamp Chef; wedding ring.
Three fave bands growing up: WHAM, Debbie Gibson (does she count?), Boyz 2 Men
2 truths and a lie: I spend way too much money on frivolous things. I would like to have more home-cooked meals (ya know, by me. at home.). I don't care what happened to McLevi.
Three things I can certainly live without: mosquitoes, fire ants, unsolicited phone calls.

I have a new hobby -- Digital Scrapbooking. I discovered it about 2 weeks ago, spent 4 days downloading a butt-load of stuff for it, then I realized I didn't have a program to actually DO IT in, so downloaded a trial of PhotoShop CS2 (sp?), and spent 2 days trying to figure that out (harder than hell). Then I realized that MS Picture It! was already on the compy, so gave it a try. 2 minutes later, I had my first page done! Now I gotta share it, so I gotta figure out how to store stuff online...Seminoles here for good
My fave "blog" to make me laugh Current Mood: chipper
