I am woman!!!

So, I called my husband to tell him I had fixed our new computer so that now the internet works. And, I also informed him that I had fixed our dryer. The vent hose had come off, and it was making a mess all over and fogging up our windows when we used it. My husband said, "wow, you make a great husband." LOL, he was just too busy, so I did it.

weight watcher reject

Just after Christmas I went to Weight Watchers. I am not saying I am obese, I just need a lose a few pounds to be in my "healthy" range. Also, I do not eat well at all. I was mostly going to learn to eat better. So, I go in and pay my fees, and I am waiting to talk to another person. The first lady comes over and hands me my check, and it is torn to shreds. She just hands it to me, and the following conversation ensues:

her: here you go (hands me the check) you can go now
me: i haven't gotten my stuff yet
her: i gave you your check back, you need to leave now
me: why?
her: you just need to leave
me: i haven't gotten my stuff yet, what is the problem
her: just leave
me: (as I was leaving) you are about rude!! did you ever stop to consider that some people don't know how to eat right and just need to learn to eat more healthy?

I was about to say much worse, but there were other patrons in there and I didn't want to make them feel bad. I was so hurt.... and pissed off!!!! She could have at least nicely said why I had to leave and then I would have. What was the problem? I wasn't overweight enough? That should not matter, I need to learn to eat better. And besides, money is money, right?

Kid funny....

I have been saving the "pop" tabs from soda cans for my Sgt. His nephew had cancer in his leg, so they had to remove the bone. He has a replacement, but it has to be replaced often as he is growing. He is 7 years old. Primary Children's Hospital gives them a credit to their account to offset the cost of his surgeries for each tab they bring in. My youngest pulled one off and brought it to me, exclaiming, "for broken leg." It is only funny because it is so innocent.

If there are too many surgeries, they will remove the entire top of his leg, put his knee into his hip backwards so his foot faces backwards, making his ankle his new knee. Then, they can put a prosthetic on his foot..... so sad......

Why I will not get a Mother of the Year award

I always use sarcasm, I really don't know how to NOT use it. However, there are some times my filter should have kicked on but did not.

Blunder #1.... My son has to have surgery at Primary Children's Hospital to have some cysts removed. They have no idea what they are or what is causing them. My son asks, "mom, is this serious? Am I going to die?" I replied, "Noooo, not without a lot of expensive and painful tests and treatments first."

Blunder #2..... One of my twins was bragging that she would soon be 17 years old. I replied, "yeah, and then I lose you as a tax deduction, so you are pretty much useless to me after that."

And this is all in one week.... to finish it off:

One of my children lost her first tooth. I stopped and got "Tooth Fairy" money on my way home from work...... yep, you guessed it, I then forgot to put it under her pillow. She had slept on my floor in my room, so I told her that the Fairy must have been confused and left it in her room. She told me she had already checked. DANG!! I went in and put it in her pillowcase, then pointed out that she should check there as it is dark and the Fairy is just feeling around in the dark. Her face lit up when she found it, but she was disappointed for hours while she thought she had been forgotten. Whew!! I barely rescued that one.......

Computer problems...

My work computer (laptop) and my house computer both broke at the same time. I just got my work one up and running. I bought a new one for the house, but I had to pay for it today to get the sale price, and it will be here next week. I am making the kids each donate some to the new one, since they are ones that broke it. Maybe that is too mean, but I don't care..... :) I am hoping they will think next time before they ruin this one too.

Doggie deeds, done dirt cheap...

So, our Yorkie is so cute, I decided he should spread the good genes around. I put an ad in a local newspaper, and studed him out. (Pimp doggy dog.) :) So, a few people have answered, and I have not received any money because I didn't want any until I was certain he wasn't sterile. In the process, I think that I have been taken on one deal, and am hopeful on the second. The ad ran out, and the interest stopped. I just reposted the ad, and my phone is ringing off the hook again. I am going to figure out how to do it differently, otherwise, he is not a stud, but a free one night stand!!!
