Getting to know you Sundays

 Ok, so I recently started following a blog called Mann Land 5, the writer Keely is so cute and funny, needless to say I just really enjoy the patootie out of her blog. Every week she does 'Getting to know YOU' Sundays, and I just done did joined. I've seen Julie from Blue Eyed Belle (another adorable favorite of mine, you simply must read!) do it a few times, along with Keely obviously :)

So without any further adieu, here's my first Getting to know YOU!

1 - Why did you start blogging?
   What a great question....no really. I mean we all start blogging for a reason, maybe more than one. Some want to teach, some need an outlet, some want to spread the word about a certain cause. There are photo blogs, mommy blogs, crafting blogs, sex blogs, funny blogs, running blogs. The list could go on...but the one thing each one has in common is that the writer is sharing something about them and their lives. For me it's the same. I guess for me I write to break the "stereotype" for lack of better words, of single moms. My shenanigans are so not the normal shenanigans. I hope to make people laugh, and to maybe just make someone smile while they read, as well as it being an outlet and a way for me to share part of my life with you. Yes, YOU!

2 - Who's the one blog friend that you would want to meet most in "real life"?
As much as I'd like to meet all of my bloggy buddies, Julie at Brown Eyed Belle is just so damn cute, and she would be a very fun person to be around you can just tell, oh and she's got a cute puppy dawg AND  a southern drawl!

3 - Why are you always concerned with losing that "extra 10 pounds" when chances are your husband/boyfriend/friends tell you that you look just fine the way you are?
Wow, these questions are gettin' mad deep yo...  It does not matter how many times someone tells you that you look fine, you aren't going to believe it until you believe it about YOURSELF.  That person is gunna be busier than a one legged man in a kicking contest if you don't have that self confidence. And I know this from first hand experience. YOU are your toughest critic. And I for one am always up for losing 10 pounds!

4 - What's the one thing you wish guys could understand about you?
   Hmmm...I'm a very outspoken person, I am always making sure I am understood, and I am not scared to explain myself. This is totally situational for me and I just can't come up with an example right now, I got nuffin'!

5 - Tattoos. How many do you have and how many are visible when you wear your "everyday" clothes?
I have NONE...although I do want one. And there is only one thing I could think about that I'd want ground into my skin permanantly and that's my son's name, most likely ony my wrists.

6 - What was the best year of your life and why?
Hands down Nov. 15th 2006...the day the light of my life was expelled from my uterus. He is the most wonderful thing to have graced me with his presence..he changed me and my life forever, and in a GREAT way. I LIVE because of that day, I BREATH because of that day, I SMILE because of that day, I LAUGH, LOVE  and am the person I am today, because of THAT DAY.

7 - Name three things you would do if you were a man for one day.
Scratch my ganoids. Taunt helpless woman with my man muscles. Walk around with out a shirt on.

8 - What's your alcoholic drink of choice that usually raises a few
Ahhhh....we're looking for answer such as 'Slippery Nipple', 'Blow Job', or "A sex on the Beach'....I am just not really into drinks that have names representing, sexual positions, or explicit body parts...give me a Kettle one Collins, or a Corona with Salt and Lime and I'm a happy girl. And thats IF. I'm drinking. Which is not often at all these days, if ever.

                                        This was fun....and I really think you should try it...Just sayin'!

Friday Fragments Folks!!!

Mommy's Idea

Well here we are again people, its time for Friday Fragments...this has been a VERRRRRA VERRRRRA long week for me...  Friday Fragments is the perfect way for me to get back into my poor neglected blog, and bloggie buddies! Including Ms. 4444 who as you may already is the origin of FF, go show her some lovins!

****I am finally starting to recover from this nasty craptastic sickness...I was actually HUNGRY last night...which is big because I've lost close to 10 lbs. in the last week or so what with being weak and having NO appetite...I knew I'd thank my awesome boyfriend for force feeding me, it really helped me get better faster, and he was there for me every step of the way. This is still not over, and I have a good week if not longer until everything heals comtpletely, BUT thank god I'm on my way! I'll be back to my sassy self in no time!

****A day or so before I got knocked on my ass with this nastyness (which would actually be last week, but lets say for shits and giggles its this week) I saw 'Cop Out'...It was hilarious. However, Bruce Willis just doesn't do comedy as well as his bang bang shoot 'em up action movies...I would recommend waiting for DVD.

**** I got the most adorable beach clothes for Trev today at Target...god love that place! They have a Paul Frank line for the kiddies, and I've always loved PF....the CUUUUUTEST stuff!!! I very strongly suggest you check it out! Here's what I got him: 

****I've missed a whole week of work....which will in fact wreak havok on my finances...but I'll figure it out as I always do!

**** Can I just say how effin happy I was to see my boy today!? He lights up my life with that big smile of his! I helped create the most adorable, sweet, happy little monkey butt ever! And I am increasingly proud of him--its an honor to be his mommy!

****Oh crap. I turn 26 on Sunday. AHHHHH!

That is all for today, I hope you all had a wonderful week, and are having a FANTASTICAL Friday!!!

Sickness and blog awards

       Well guys....first off thank you to all of my new followers, and for all of the awesome comments! I really means alot to me!!! Really really! I love you all!

            Second. I am really sick... I found out I have MRSA yesterday... this started last week  with one pimple like bump and it spread like wild fire...I sent my son to his fathers house yesterday and went straight to the ER, was given strong antibiotics and was told that in about 5 days the infection would start to clear....FIVE DAYS?!?!  That doesn't include the healing of the sores. I simply will not go into detail, but If you've ever had it, you know, it HURTS.  I am nauseous, I have a fever, the lymphnodes in my body are swollen and painful, and all I want to do is sleep...its the only thing that takes my mind off of it. I will definitely not be working this week, as MRSA is highly contagious...I am supposed to pay rent out of this paycheck....ugh.   Long story short...besides crying, sleeping, washing everything I wear and Lysol-ing EVERYTHING I don't feel much like doing anything else...meaning my blog has taken the back seat... I just can't right now...  I am not too sure how long it will be until I can... the rest of the week for sure. Hopefully I will still have all of you lovely, wonderful, AWESOME followers still checking back! This whole situation is especially discouraging for me right now, because I just finished my antibiotics from the nasty kidney infection I had week before last!  This is just really hard for me...I never get sick...and I feel like I've been bed ridden for 2 weeks....its too much. Pray for me.

       Third....Thank sweet baby Jesus for Julie over at Brown Eyed Belle for the blog award she gave me! Between logging on to find new comments, new followers AND  blog award, I feel like my day has been made, again, Thank you!!!!!!

Look how cute...

I love it!

Ok, time to go crawl back into my little hole, and attempt to sleep...I hopefully the antibiotics will really work well and I'll be up and moving  and able to blog more...you all have a wonderful day and wish me luck! *hugs*

My favoritest things: Pictures of my son

   God knows I have thousands of pictures of my son....in the past 3 years it's like my camera is an appendage...I am the paparazzi of my son's life...I am always trying to get that PERFECT picture, but it's funny, the pictures that were not plannned or were the most random are always the ones I love the most.

This was not easy, 10 pictures?! I love them ALL of course! But without any further adieu here are my top 10 favorite pictures up until now, of my son!

Barely a week old... teeny tiny and fresh out of the oven,
I remember it like it was yesterday, my little miracle graced
me with his presence and my life has never been the same!

Would you just LOOK at the chubbiness!!?? I think it's
the way he's sitting and that adorable sideways hat that
makes me love this picture so much!

My happy little chunky munky in the bath, all wide eyed
and smiley....
(you do not have anything on your screen...its the camera)

Halloween 2007... he was a monkey, and a cute one at that!
This picture wound up being my Christmas card that year.

Again with the bath pictures...his smile in this picture
kills me...I LOVE IT!!

This one because I look at this, and in my head I can
hear how hard he was laughing, his laugh is like music to
my ears!

This was like a Norman Rockwell moment for me...

He had just gotten a hair cut in this picture, and darn it
he looked SO handsome!!!!!

That red dog he is loving up on he's had for 3 years...his whole
little life...it goes with him EVERYWHERE... its torn, has holes
everywhere, and is falling apart from all the love he has for it.
And you can just see his intense love for his "doggy"in this picture.

The goofy side. On the other side of the camera I'm cracking up.

Ok. I know I said 10. But this picture of the 2 of us is just so cute I HAD to...

  I cannot guarentee my favorites will not change, I seemed like as I was going through them all I just could NOT  make up my mind, so I guess I could consider them all favorites, and these were just the highlights :)
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

                                     I hope y'all have a fanfreakingtasctic day!!!!!!

Holy wow....Friday?!

Mommy's Idea

           Friday, oh friday.... This week started out horribly and ended quite well if I do say so myself... And I DO say. I haven't posted much, it's been one of those weeks that unfortunately blogging got pushed to the side. And it seems like friday fragments are all that's on my blog. But that's ok, because Friday Fragments are the bomb and so is Mrs. 4444!!!!!

**** I put my 2 weeks in at one of my two jobs... job # 1 just had to go.... I dreaded going to work there...it got to the point where I was literally forcing myself to just be motivated to go. I have been talking about it, and saying I wanted to quit for MONTHS. I've been all talk and no action. So as of the 25th of this month I will be simplifying. And man does it feel guuuuuuuuuud. Picking up more hours at #2 along with a .50 raise....booomshackalacka!

****I've gotten lightening fast at Trader Joe's trips....I was in and out of there in 36 minutes tonight.... and that included looking for the Lemur with the St. Patty's day hat on... If you don't go to Trader's you might not know that that have a little stuffed Lemur that they hide around the store, and they use it to keep all the little terrors  kiddies busy. I digress.... I take pride in my Trader's navigational skills....and I left unscathed....

****Each week when I pick my son up after not seeing him for the 3 days he's with his father, it seems like he's BIG. I mean where the hell is my little munchkin going?! He is just so smart, and you can just see that he is getting better at holding conversations and comprehending what you're telling him. And HE POOPED IN THE POTTY. If you're a mom you will understand my excitement. This is something I've been dreaming of for 3 years... truely a time to be celebrated.

**** I've been thinking about mentioning this for sometime now, but haven't found a place for it, but by George, I think the time is now. I was reminded this week by his use of the words I'll be mentioning.  I laugh so hard at my son sometimes... and alot of the time its at the way he talks... my favorite word so far is "Dingers" or maybe it's "horn dogs".
      Below are a couple examples of how the words would be used:

    "Mommy, my mashed my dingers!"= Mommy I smashed my fingers (I don't laugh when my son smashes my fingers...just sayin')

   Me: Trev what do you want for dinner?
   Trev: HORNDOGS!!!! (Corn dogs)

****This is a picture of my night stand the day I finally twitched after sleeping for almost 2 days straight with the dreaded Kidney infection.... I thought the things I had sitting there were pretty random...
From left to right.... Yes...i have a Disney Princess alarm clock...
you know you're jealous! Channel changer...cause I sure as hell wasn't getting
up from my bed... My "eyes" of course I wasn't
wearing them cause I was passed the f***
out!!  Water and lots of it...Baby wipes...cause I use them
for EVERYTHING. Drugs.....just the kind to make me better...TAPATIO?!?!?
Why the eff do I have hot sauce on my nightstand? I dunno....i put it on
everything..... A roll of TP...cause tissue boxes are for the birds.... A Jamba juice smoothie...
lord have mercy on the poor lady that had to witness my crusty ass walking in
to order that,  after a pain killer induced 17 hours of sleep. But damn that smoothie was
wonderfully refreshing!


 I hope from that you all had a good week, here's to a great weekend and don't forget to spring back this sunday!

Friday Fragments are Freakin' fantastic

Mommy's Idea

  I won't lie... I am beyond happy this week is over, My days off start tomorrow and I'm looking forward to the "peace and quiet".  A wee Start over if you will...wiping the slate clean.

  *So, venting helped a bit yesterday, thank all of you for the kind words and the support! It's great to know you all care, I appreciate it more than you know! You rock my socks off!!!

* Its really frosts my cookies that I've been missing Grey's and Ugly Betty...I am so behind and that doesn't jive well! What if I miss something?! I mean this is close to a crisis folks...(am I dramatic enough for you?)
All I gotsta say is, if OnDemand doesn't have the past two weeks of both shows I've missed I am going to be one ticked off Tina. Speaking of shows.....

* I was given season one of 'Weeds' to watch...I've been meaning to watch it but I can't seem to find the time, hence the reason why I've missed the others in my previous Fragment. I digress..... the show is supposed to be really great, so I am excited....and when I finally find the time, I'll be excited then too!

*Crunchy Peanut Butter Cliff Bars are SO good....I ate one just now, as a matter of fact, yummy crunchy, filling, and just all around satisfying. These often get me through the week for breakfast, as they did this week...I work two jobs, so in between they're fast and easy, along with a Banana.

* I am so thankful for my second job...seriously that place is my therapy...I worked there for 5 years before my son, left for 3 years, and due to some job loss issues in June of last year, Im back again...I have an ocean veiw from the cash registers, and they people I work with are beyond wonderful. Everyday I see regulars that have practically watched me grow up. I'm surrounded by old friends and some new, and some pretty awesome regulars. I really could not ask for more.  (annnnnnd I get free coffee!)

*I'm learning how to play Texas Hold 'em...and I'm also learning I totally lack a poker face... I am a dead give away. I need to work on this....and once I do, I'll be a force to reckon with...tell you me.   I love things that require a little strategy....but while I'm learning I'll take it easy....seeing as how I can get a straight flush and not even know I won a huge pot untill someone told me..............But once I figure it out....you bettah watch yo back!

      Otay....as usual thank you thank you thank you. For reading, have a fantastic Friday, and of course do not forget to Visit the lovely Mrs. 4444, At Half past kissin' time , the home of Friday fragments!

I might just....

Crawl into a hole?

Cry? sob? Throw a fit? Wig the fuck out?

All of these are things I feel like I'm going to end up doing some time in the very near future...if not 3 seconds from now...  For some reason, I've lost the ability to cope with my life.... everything that happens, even the little things are sending me into panic. I feel like I have a 50 pound weight on my chest, and each time I try to take a deep cleansing "chill your ass out" breath, it's stiffled. 

 Is it weird that just 2 days ago I was fine? Or maybe I was "fine". Maybe after 26 years of forcing myself to smile, even when I didn't want to is finally taking it's toll... Im known for my smile, I was named after the song "sarah smile" (check out a great version by Jimmy Wayne) And I can't seem to curl the corners of my mouth up for the life of me...Im damn near close to using my fingers to do it .I worry SO much about everything and everyone in my life that I might be losing sight of my self...and my heart..

I am scared...Im scared of the future, my present and past at all the same time.... I could sit here for ever and discuss my short comings...but right now my hugest fear is that I will forever be stuggling as a single mom. Struggling to make ends meet, struggling to be a good mom, even though I often feel like I DON'T KNOW WHAT I AM DOING.  I feel like I don't do enough, I don't work hard enough, I'm not patient enough, I don't ever and could NEVER tell my son how much I love him...how much the only thing that keeps me going is him. He is THE soul reason I am here, and the reason why I get up in the morning even though right now, I want to close my eyes and just sink. I don't tell him enough how good of a little boy he is, and how wonderful of a little human being he is...how much his kisses warm my soul. I get so stressed, and frustrated with the trials and tribulations of being alone and raising a 3 year old that I forget to compliment my child, and it leaves me guilt striken.

I cry as I write this, and mybe that's because I need it...I hold the peices together too often...I think for now I'll let them fall.......and as usual, pick them back up and put myself together again.

And as usual put a smile on my face.

It's the little things in life!

–adjective,-pi·er, -pi·est.

1.delighted, pleased, or glad, as over a particular thing: to be happy to see a person.
2.characterized by or indicative of pleasure, contentment, or joy: a happy mood; a happy frame of mind.
3.favored by fortune; fortunate or lucky: a happy, fruitful land.
4.apt or felicitous, as actions, utterances, or ideas.
5.obsessed by or quick to use the item indicated (usually used in combination): a trigger-happy gangster. Everybody is gadget-happy these days.

        I am one of those people who is happy happy happy smile smile smile on the outside, but I'm freaking out on the inside...I, being an Aries, have to be in control of everything, or I try to be. (unsuccessfully half the time)   I need a who, what, when, where, and why for everything, and if you can give me more information that's even better! Most would easily consider me tightly wound, but at the same time I'm as laid back as can be...are you confused yet??  Welcome to the club.

      So in order to be truely happy as much as possible, I find the little things in life and focus on those....The little things in life, along with the obviously big things in life, such as family, my amazing little boy, and just being alive every day in general, are what gets me by. I have to laugh at the little things, be easily entertained, and smile at everything, I even smile when I'm nervous. It's really weird actually. I'll be the one grinning like an idiot when everyone else is sweating bullets.

You want to know what makes me happy? These are a few of my favorite things....singing in my best Julie Andrews voice (It isn't pretty....be glad you aren't here) You'll want me to sing Tenor......... TEN OR 20 FEET AWAY!!! bwahaha....you know you laughed!  That little saying brings me to the first thing that makes me happy... I LOVE cheesy lines....funny little quips that I use all the time, I have one for everything....
         -"I love you"= I love you like a fat kid loves cake
         -"You catch my drift?"= You wipin' what I'm spillin' doggie?
         -"I got this"= I'm on it like swimwear
         -"I want that now"= I'm on it like a bum on a ham sandwhich
         -"Look who just showed up!"=Well butter my butt and call me a bisquit, look who's here!
         -"I'm on a roll"= Call me buttah, cause I'm on a roll!
        -"Let's get out of here"= Lets make like seagulls and get the flock out
        -"I'm out of here"= I'm gunna make like a baby, and head out. OR I'm gunna make like Tom and cruise
           OR I'm out like a brown trout.
         -"You're such a smart fella"=You'se such a fart smella!

I have a few more....howwwwevvverrrr....we won't be using them here, as some of them are very politically incorrect. Moving on... I also am entertained like you wouldn't believe, by babies laughing.... I laugh so hard it brings me to tear when a cute, chunky lil squish face monkey is laughing so hard he can hardly breath...it makes my day. I have such a video for you.... I dare you not to laugh your ass off.

       You wanna know what else??? Face Book notifications.... I am a bonafied, certified, proven guilty, Face book addict. I actually get excited, when I log on and have new responses to my posts... I am the same way with my beloved blog. Hey, what can I say? It's not my fault...I'm an Aries....I love the positive reinforcement. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it y'all. Sooooo make me smile folks....pleeeeeeeease!

      Opening my mailbox, and hidden under a pile of stupid coupons, and random advertisements lies and sweet little gem.... deserving of a "yesssssssss" and a fist pump right in my front yard...as if my neighbors don't think I'm weird enough, the 'Rolling Stone' is the most bad ass thing that could come in the mail....besides cash money of course... *wink wink nudge nudge say no more say no more*  It makes me so happy knowing theres one on the way.... verra verra happy!

This one made me particularly happy!

And holy sheep shit..... Something JUST happened that makes me so happy I actually jumped my ass out of my swivel chair!!!!

I have just recieved my very first blog award,  From Little Miss Maddi Moo!!!!

God, seriously....Thank you SO much! You just straight up made my  day!!!!!

Well it looks like I know what tomorrow's post is going to be! I get to pick my very own favorites, and you get to learn 7 things about me. I am SOOO looking forward to this!!!! Sorry If I jumped the gun, I also as an Aries lack the ability to keep my fat trap shut! I can't help it if I'm overly excited! Just sayin'.....

I love you all, and have a wonderful and with out a doubt wild day!!!
