It is my home, my neighborhood, and my history. It is what I am and where I came from. Embarrassing? Yes Boring? Never

I hate this, I want to be the person that stays home.

Halloween - And the addiction continues

Fat cat is bored, never good--so he has once again allowed his addiction to control him. He has taken two of my Tupperware very expensive very nice bowls (I only have a few that I can actually find the lids) and about 32 feet of PVC pipe and paint and fibers to create.....

A really large (and by that I do mean bigger than a lawn tractor, but smaller than a mini van) nasty scary spider.

This thing is about 3 foot high and 4 foot across. It's eyes glow, it stands up on its own legs and he is trying to figure away to make it mobile. He is about to build a herd of them!!! Hide your Tupperware my friends!!

Ok, so when we put the new floors in our house, we removed some of the unsitely cold air return grates and have not been able to find replacement ones. Which is appearantly a very difficult task. Fat Cat measured the one that is still on that looks like crap. 15 x 9. Excellent. But we have went to every freaking hardware do it yourself store in the greater Kracker Barrell area but we cannot find them. our house is not that old, but it seems that the new ones use a new measurement for the ductwork, so we are stuck. Fat Cat decised he is going to have to build some sort of frame for one that is a little smaller, so we go home and he takes off the nasty grate and we clean out the hole and he measures it. the opening is 14 x 8. Hmmm. could it be the grate that you buy is by the opening size and not the size of the old nasty grate? Why yes, yes it is. I could say nothing, I am still trying to the the soap cream off the sheets and pillows.

Worst Lotion on the Planet, YUK

So for Christmas Butterfly really went overboard for me, and one of the many gifts were these wonderful Cashmere Lotions from Bath and Body. I had not tried them before and everyone said they were fantastic. I had not used them yet, and the other night while laying in bed i thought how nice it would be to have the lotion on my night stand so i could put it on my hands and feet when i don't have to get back up. The next day I put them on the stand. Determined to use them, one a cream and one a lotion. I forgot about them until last night when i went to bed and my neck was really dry and AAHHAA I just happen to have lotion. So i grab the tube of cream and i squirt a glob on my hand and rub it on my neck and winter dry hands and arms. It was really sticky and would not absorb in. And the smell was over powering. OMG. Nasty it was. Thick and sticky and clumpy. I tell you it was horrible. I decided right then in the morning I would throw out this lumpy sticky stinky stuff. I awoke and found my arms were still sticky. OMG. I put on my glasses and after gettting the nutty dogs plucked out of the morning snow drift. I came back up and grabbed the tube to pitch it, i looked at the lable as I walked to the trash. Cashmere SHOWER CREAM.

That is totally different - sleeping all slathered up in soap is not that great for the skin. I put the tube in the shower. I tried the actual lotion. it is really really nice. totally not sticky. What a freaking nut job.

I Give Already

I have been stuck in my driveway - both going in and going out. my boots and shoes are all salt covered. My dogs are peeing all over the porch because they can't go into the snow, it is deeper than they are tall. The white is blinding, the temperature is plumiting, and i am getting stagnet and stiffled. I am ready to just pack up and head to Jamamaca. Because it is ja-makin-me crazy!

Fat Cat's B-day

Cable Guy Jacket- means one of those flannel zip up coats with a hood

His mother gave him one for Xmas and one for his birthday, his response after peaking in the gift bag:

"I don;'t have to open it - it is one of those cable guy jackets. Like you gave me at Xmas, like you gave me the year before, just like the 6 in closet that still have tags, because I DO NOT WEAR CABLE GUY JACKETS!!!! I apparently collect them, but i have never worn them. Did you get a bunch of them for like $4 or something? We rescheduled my birthday party because you and my brother are leaving for Florida tomorrow together, he gets me nothing, and you get me another cable guy jacket, WTF? Why did we bother? And everyone wonders why i keep flipping out! I have to buy your husband $100 Xmas gift, and he cannot even come down two houses and wish me a happy birthday."

Of course they still stayed for dinner. They will be back next week, he will be over it by then. I hope.

I have told this to my daughters over and over:

If it has tires or testicles it will give you nothing but trouble and you will never fully understand it.

Accept this and move on.

Where are my prizes? (Fat Cat bounces out the house!)


It is the month of my birthday I get prizes, where are they?

Are you six? And it is presents you get for birthdays.

Well sometimes you get surprises for your birthday.

Okay Sir Prize, (Fat Cat's new rap name I think) how about I don't put ground glass in your dinner.

It was worth a shot. How 'bout we stop and get chicken for dinner?
