Damaged Merchandise

Why I should be carried, driven, dragged, or just plain sitting on my ass. And that's just my leg!
This shows ya how much the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer means to me. I damaged myself getting ready for it! For anyone who hasn't donated, but wants to, there is still a little under 2 weeks. SUPPORT ME! Um, please. Thank you!

Peace, Love, & Supporting a Worthy Cause

I hope you all have a great day!

Opposite Day

After reading Kadi's post this morning at Womb at the Innsane, I decided that I need to do an opposite day. If I knew everything & shit sunshine (I kept it clean in your comments, Kadi), then everyone will follow & love me! So let me tell you a little about me (with some sunshine thrown in.):

  • I am a 30 year old wife & mom.
  • I am completely even tempered.
  • I have an an amazing husband & a perfect child.
  • I am the happiest woman alive. How can I not be w/the perfect hubby & child?
  • I keep my house spotless, the refrigerator full, & the laundry is always put away.
  • My daughter never gets dirty & never makes a mess.
  • My dog never attacks any of my things.
  • I have no problems at all. With the perfect family & household, what problems could there be?
  • I am an expert in child rearing.
  • I am extremely outgoing. I am frigging amazing.
  • I know all there is about HTML & blogging. If anyone has questions, they can always come to me.
  • I am the Director of Bullshit at the prestigious Mentally Inked Inc.
  • I am Vice President in charge of publicity at the same company.
  • I am awesome on Opposite Day!
  • I went to college for 4 years & have a degree in ...

Jeebus, I just can't do this. I guess I will never be popular or queen of the blogosphere.

I guess I am a failure at Opposite Day! I can come up w/lies, but not well enough to put them in paragraph form. I guess I'll have to stick to Queen of the House the Tornado Hit. To keep myself humble, y'all may stick to calling me Kim.

Thank you to those of you who do follow & read & like me for me. I appreciate you all!
Peace & Love

Just Another Manic...Friday?

It seems as this week has been a week for breakdowns. I was very nearly included in that, but I decided that I didn't feel very breakdownish around my appointed time (Yes, I made an appointment for a break down. Everyone else was having one & I didn't want to intrude on their pain or the love they got from others.), so I cancelled my appointment. So, that means I'm not going to get into it. I still want love, hugs, pizza, bacon, & sushi, though. If you've got any to give, then I want it. (Greedy bitch, ain't I?)

So what has helped me get through the week? Well there has been a combo of things:

I have my daughter (her vacay has just started) & that is a mixed blessing. I love her to pieces, but she makes me nuts ( & not worry too much about my other shit).

There have been my friends (Like I said, rough week for a lot of people & if you're trying to cheer them up, you're also distracting yourself. My answer for everything: crazy glue & duct tape. Just trust me! That may sound selfish, but I never claimed I wasn't.) On a normal day week/day, they are ALL highly entertaining in their (I almost spelled it they're, just to mess w/one of them!) own ways & there (tempted yet again!) for you if you need them. They circle the wagons around anyone of us in need. (I love & appreciate you all.)

Even the dog distracts me (Who knows what she'll eat next? Yes, it'll cost me, thus adding to my problems, but it's almost like a game before walking through the door, you have to make a guess on whether or not she destroyed something & if so, what. It was the Clue dvd, in the living room, with those razors we call teeth. )

True Blood has also helped my escape from reality (Damn it, I have to wait until Nov for New Moon. This at least helps give me my vamp fix!) While I tried to read the books years ago & couldn't get into them, I do like the series & finding the episodes online has been an adventure.

Jack & Stench (or Stretch) have helped. Listening to their problems, rantings, or just reading of the Craig's List Ads are always good for a laugh or just relief that it's not me. (Figuring out that I am a mix of Stench AND his wife was not pleasant, though!)

And we can not forget my my love of the cheese! As we speak (or as I write), I am listening to cheese on Youtube. My love of cheese (ie teeny bopper movies, etc.) has gotten me through many a rough time.

The hubby is noticeably absent from this list. He adds to my stress, just as I'm sure I am adding to his. I love him to pieces, but he's not allowed back on this list until he agrees to rub my feet again!

I have given myself this week to dwell & get adjusted to M being off school, so this weekend I need to make sure that I get my shit together & start fresh on Monday (& be productive, damn it!).

It was teeny bopper or this & I stand by my decision.

Peace & Love

10 Things I Hate About Me

Welcome, once again, to my life. It may not be pretty to look at, but it'll make you feel good about your own (hmm...maybe that should be my new tagline!).

Have you ever felt completely worthless ("Are you tired, rundown, listless? Do you pop out at parties? Are you unpoopular?" Oh, how the mind wanders.) That is the boat I'm in right now. The following is my list of reasons why:

  • We're broke
  • We're broke because I couldn't handle the job I've had for almost 10 years anymore
  • We're broke cuz I'm not helping to bring in the big bucks
  • We're broke because I don't have enough gold to make cash for gold worth it
  • I'm a shitty female because I don't have enough gold for cash for gold!
  • We're broke because I can't people shop
  • I'm such a shitty female that I can't even shop for people. (I should be able to shop for anything!)
  • We're broke because I'm not even good enough to be a stripper (ahem *cough cough*, not that I'd actually do such a thing.)
  • I need to lose weight, but can't seem to. (How the hell am I supposed to strip if I can't lose weight?!)
  • I'm a terrible housewife. (We need a friggin maid,which we can't get cuz we're broke. This place is a mess!)

Ok, I think y'all get the point. I could go on, but 10 is a nice round number. The point is that I'm broke & need to lose weight, so I can strip (to get people skills, of course) to learn to people shop & earn the big bucks.

Things will get better, I know, but right now it doesn't feel like it. It's amazing at how quickly the funk can take over. While I'd like to curl up into a little ball & watch Pirates all day, I have to get out of the funk as soon as possible, so I can get some work done & hope the hubby doesn't realize what he's gotten himself into.

I may not be able to people shop, but I can give you a 2 for 1 special.

Peace & Love

I Declare Today Music Monday!

Just so you could get a little feel for me, instead of posting a video today, I'm posting a playlist I did from my actual playlist. (Trust me, you don't want to hear all of it!) If there is something you think I should be listening to, please feel free to let me know! If you wanna give me crap, go ahead, I can take it!

Peace & Love people. Trust me, we'll need it to make it through the week!

Cranky Kim is Back!

I have a sink, full of dishes, calling me. I have work calling me. The shower is calling me. I'm ignoring them all (ok, I should probably not ignore the shower for too much longer).

So far I have had a week that has left me in a fairly crabtastic mood. Being broke, tends to leave most people that way. Having a husband who doesn't quite understand the concept of broke doesn't help either (If they're short on funds, who the hell buys steak?!).

On Sunday, I went to the OC Fair. I had a wonderful time, had some simply sinsational food (I refuse to even look at the scale), & got to hang out with my friends. I got to meet (& hug) Jack & (wave to) Stench/Stretch (that guy is friggin huge, but hey, I'm only 5' 1") from the Jack & Stench show. I had so much fun that it was worth the sunburn on my scalp & chest.

The week went downhill from there. Eric had to ask his momma to borrow money for groceries (he didn't even go to WinCo!) because our bank account is tapped until tomorrow (yes, I went to the fair, but I had free tickets & ride passes, so don't give me shit). The credit card he had didn't have enough room on it for what he got (damn it, he should have gone to WinCo!) & now our business is aired for the family. (Shit! Ignore everything you just read!)

Since there seems to be a problem with my delete button, I'll keep going. I need to pay M's school for this week plus at least part of the registration charges for the coming school year. We keep on adding on the credit card to pay for gas...blah, blah, blah...I think my bitching is done for now.

On a happy note, I'm still not smoking, though heaven knows I've needed 1 or 5 (Ahhh, those vibrating foot massage chairs at the fair! Ahem, sorry.) because of the stress. I'm also only $150 from my goal for the Avon Walk. Yaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!

Have I mentioned how fabulous the weather is today?

The next week should be different, better. "The sun will come out tomorrow!"

Yes, I'm a little ashamed, so just keep it to yourself.

Peace & Love
