You wanna spork in the eye?

This is a public service announcement to all Husbands:

This whole post came to mind last night in bed when the Hubby was brave enough to ask when the last time I shaved my legs was.

First thought that came to my head was to cut him.

I'm here all day with the kids. I have a shit ton of errands to run. a house to clean, meals to prepare, and homework to oversee.

There are only so many hours in the day. Lets face it guys. We already have you! that and it's starting to get cold outside, and honestly no one will be able to see our legs. So if I want to save time and NOT shave my legs, be smart and don't say anything about it. Be happy that I am still trimming other areas. That and lets face it.... I don't even know when I last shaved.

Letter to my future self

Today I turn 23  32.

I like to think I have learned from all my past mistakes. That I will know what I need to do and when I need to do it.  So I think I need to write myself a letter so the future me knows how far I have come.

Dear Me,

You are another year older and wiser, not to mention rounder. Sitting here now think about how far you have come. You have overcome obstacles that would shatter a weaker person. You have suffered devastating losses yet you are still here. A little broken and bent, but stronger for making it through mostly intact. You have lost your biggest cheerleader and found that there are more people in this big ole world that care for you and want to see you succeed. You have made new friends and lost old ones. You have went through a horrible marriage, and when you thought you were to be forever alone you met the one person in the world that completes you and understands your craziness. You brought 3 precious lives into this world. And no matter how scary those first moments were, you are better because of them. You will continue to make mistakes and learn from them. And pass that knowledge onto your children. You are beautiful and are where you need to be. Life is always an uphill climb, and it wouldn't be worth living if we didn't stumble from time to time.

Think back on all that you have been through. Are you where you were 5 years ago? No. Will you ever get lost time back? No.

All you can do is look forward, keep putting one foot in front of the other, and remember that life is beautiful.

It's the most wonderful time of the year

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! I love Fall! This is the best time of the year for me. I love love love.... did I mention love it?

I love living in Virginia this time of the year. We only live 10 minutes from the park way and have beautiful views of the changing leaves out our back door.

Not to hot, not to cold, this makes for a happy Mommy!!!

I love that hunting season is a month away, I have been dying for a wild turkey ( not the drink, however that would never be turned down ), and some delectable deer tenderloin. The Middle Little is practicing with her bow with hopes of hunting with the Hubs this season. I'm so proud of her <3 p="">

                                            ^^^^^^^ See that? Yep, when the ZA happens she will be able to stand her own with Daryl Dixon!!!

This is the time of year where I take a break from constant TTC and spend more time doing me and things we enjoy as a family. As a whole I am a whole lot less stressed.

It's time for pumpkin patches, hay rides, candy, costumes, haunted houses, candy, trick or treating, ... did I mention candy?

This is when I obsess over Zombie babies, and other cute decorations that I would leave out year round.

Speaking of costumes, we have been scouring the interwebs for the perfect costumes for the littles. The oldest wants to be a Military Babe. The Middle Little wants to be well hell I don't really know what she wants to be, she likes everything. and my Little Little is going to be a Zombie .... unless I find something frighteningly cute.

We go through out horror flick faze.

Yep this is the most wonderful time of the year!!!

The world is a scary place....

I remember when I was younger being able to run all over the neighborhood and not have my Mom worrying about what could happen to me. The world was a much safer place then, or maybe we just didn't hear about all the awfulness  back then like we do now. Oh how I wish we could go back to living in that little bubble of safety.

Not it's not just small children that we need to teach about "Stranger Danger".

We have to adapt new teaching to out teens and young adults.

As out children get older they seek independence from Ole Mom and dad. It is no longer cool to be chaperoned by the "rents".

This is when we must beat into their heads that the world is not a safe place.

Here are some tips to help keep our babies safe, and hopefully lower the chance of something happening to them.

1:   Safety in numbers. When going out make sure you have at least 1 other friends with you. NEVER go off alone in a crowded venue. Even if it's to the bathroom or to go outside to get some fresh air. ALWAYS TAKE A BUDDY!!!!!! the Buddy System worked in Kindergarten just as good as it does now.

2: Always let a parent know where you will be and when you will be expected home.

3. Be responsible. Underage drinking is never OK, and you can put yourself in dangerous situations. If you are of age, drink responsibly. Always have a designated driver and at least 1 non drinker per person drinking.

4. Be aware. Make sure you check out your surroundings. If something feels "off" it usually is. Follow your gut and get out of there.

5. Online. This is a big deal. NEVER EVER EVER meet someone you have never meet before online in public alone. Always take a buddy. And if things feel weird get the heck out of Dodge. Always meet in well lit and populated areas. Never give out personal information.

6. If you encounter what seems to be a person with bad motives and you feel threatened scream. Yelling FIRE is super helpful.

7. If your at a store and feel like you are being followed, go to a cashier, security guard, or even a frazzled looking Mom with young children and express your fears.

8. Aerosol hairspray is a great thing to have . Get a small can and keep it in your hand while walking out to your car. If something happens that little can could very well give you time to save your life.

Just remember the world is a scary place.

Can we say Blogger Idol

That's right Bitches. I know I suck and am a total slacker, but times are a changin and this lil chicky is auditioning :)  Please go like the Official Blogger Idol page and let them know you want ME to make it to the Top 13!

It could happen to anyone

I have easily spent the better part of the last 39 days praying for the safe return of a local 17 year old High School Senior.

I can easily put myself in her family's position, feel their worry, pain , and fear.

This is Alexis Murphy. and she is missing.......

Think about it......

This outgoing, athletic, popular teen should be enjoying he final year in High school. Preparing herself for college, getting excited about graduation, final dances, and volleyball games, enjoying her friends and family. But she isn't. No one knows where this child is.

Alexis was last seen Aug. 3 at the Liberty gas station off U.S. 29 in Lovingston. She told her family she was headed to Lynchburg to get hair extensions for her senior portrait.

Seems so easy. Her car was found in a populated location in Charlottesville Virginia. How did this happen? Where is she? 

Though there have been leads and someone is in custody charged with her abduction, where is Alexis Murphy? Her cell phone has been found. 

Yet still no trace of Alexis.....

Someone somewhere knows something.

I keep looking at my 3 little girls and think this could be them in a few years. The world is no longer a safe place for my babies. For anyone's babies.

How is any parent supposed to let their child gain independence when things like this happen?

Why isn't anyone talking?

Although everyone is holding out hope that she will be found alive and well soon, you can't help but have that little thought in the back of your mind. What if she isn't......

Her car was found in the same town that Morgan Harrington went missing from while in the area for a Metallica concert.

Once again a beautiful young girl that had her whole life ahead of her. Only her story isn't stuck in the middle of not knowing. Morgan was found, just not as everyone hoped and prayed she would be.

Please God, don't let Alexis be a repeat of Morgan.

And that's not it.

Dashad Sage Smith  also went missing from Charlottesville 9 months ago.  

The man in custody was also a suspect in the disappearance  of Samantha Clarke in 2010. 

Things can change in the blink of an eye.

I pray and I hope you all will as well that these families find solace and peace and answers soon. I pray that these children are alive and well and will be reunited with their families soon.

I also pray that although we may be able to imagine the pain they are going through that no one ever has to go through it again. You should never have to wonder if and when you will ever see your child again.


OMG my head is killing me. All these small children do is fight and it's getting old!!!

Back to school woes

Aside from Christmas the back to school season is my most hated time of the year.  This is one on the times of year where I think "Why oh why do I have more than 1 child"....  Then I remember... Duh, I'm a nympho, and kids come from sex. Honestly I'm surprised I don't have 25 kids. I could really have given the Duggers a run for the money is I was more fertile.

School starts back next Tuesday. And the only thing I have accomplished is spending 200 on school supplies. Yes my Dear friends, you read that right. I spent 200 mother effin dollars on their school supplies. The school list has gotten so specific. They don't want the generic crap that I wanted to buy. Noooooo they want name brand shit like Expo, and Crayola, and clorox, and Kleenex brand shit. No dollar Treeing shit this year.

I still have to clothe 2 little people for this year. For some odd reason they can't fit into the shit I just got them for Christmas last year. It must be because they want to be fed everyday or some shit. And shoes, yeah they need shoes too.

And to top all that off... they are at that wonderful age where they know that there are stores other than Walmart! They want shit from Justice, and American eagle, and shit like that. Do they think I'm made of money???

Oh yeah good times, cause as soon as this is over, I have to start getting their Christmas stuff. I'm tellin ya this is a vicious cycle....

I just went through the scariest moment in my life thus far as a Mother. Worse than the Little Little's cleft repairs.

My Middle Little B was with her biological Father this week. I got up at 6:30 Wednesday morning to 20 missed calls from him. they were rushing my Middle to another hospital from the one he had taken her to. My sweet 7 year old baby had to have her appendix taken out.Let me tell ya, when someone tells you something like that you have and you have an over active imagination like I do, the 45 minutes it takes to get to the hospital are pure HELL!!!

It was inflamed. Not ruptured like he told me on the phone.

This is when they were getting ready to take her into the OR.

They removed it through her belly button

Day after surgery

Home at last where she belongs

Snuggle time with Daddy and a heating pad.

Hubby was there every second he could be. She is D's baby.  She is good now for the most part. Just super sore and her pain meds don't really work that great. But I am so thankful that she is home now and that they caught it in time.

the Sperm Donor thought she was going back to his house when she got released.... Ummm I think NOT. I threw a bitch fit, and she is where she needs to be. With her Mommy. She didn't want to go with him anyway.

His Mother threw a fit because I brought her home....

I find out today, that Middle's tummy had been hurting for 2 damn days before they took her to the E.R, and he didn't call to let me know he was taking her till they rushed her to another hospital. Yeah I'm a bit pissed off about that.

And on top of that, my eldest Little told me that her step-grandfather yelled at her for CRYING for wanting to go to the hospital with Middle. She cried herself to sleep that night worrying about her Sissy.......

But it's ok now. They are home. And Middle is loving all this extra attention she is getting.

But I do not wish something like this to happen to anyone's baby. It was horrendous

Mom Brain

There comes a time after leaving the work force to stay home with your children that you realize that parenthood has ruined your brain.


Before kids when you go out to a store you make yourself pretty.... Yeah that shit don't happen round here no more. Getting 3 kids somewhat presentable for public viewing and the struggle to get them all in the car and make it to the store all in one piece, Ain't nobody got time for that make-up and hair brushing shit. I'm lucky to remember pants and a bra. Hell who am I kidding? I rarely wear a bra any more, and just go to Wally World in my Pj's.

There once was a time when I could go out and have ACTUAL conversations.... with random people and NOT look like a psych ward escapee.

Now the whole moving my mouth and coherent words coming out of it thing... it just doesn't happen.

Outside of my kids.... I have nothing interesting to say.

However, if I could just stick with the inner webs I'm good to go. I can sure as fuck  type some somewhat sane things, but in the end they come out nonsensical as well.

On the rare occasions I go out.... gasp without my children, you may mistake me as a schizophrenia patient that is off her meds.

So if you see a poor bedraggled woman in the toilet paper isle in Wal-Mart, having a full blown conversation with herself about Charmin verses Quilted Northern toilet paper, that would be me. Just give me a pat on the back and tell me to get the Charmin..... and to go home and take my meds......

Summer ..... Yeah it sucks

Yeah the Little's love this time of year. No school, they can swim all the time, play outside all day, and catch lightening bugs at night.

For me.... yeah, not so much.

It's a sad reminder of the upcoming anniversary of the accident that took my Mom and Donnie. It's had to think of having a good time, when all I can think is that 5 years ago today they were still here.

I'm thinking I have to start back to school shopping for the older 2 Little's.

I have to work in my garden in unbelievable heat.

No matter what I can't seem to cool the house.

Fuck I still have to clean the house.

Gearing up for the Fall pageant season.... yeah they sucks too....

Then I have a rampaging 3 year old that is Hell bent on destroying what little sanity I have retained.

Everything the kids want to do takes money we don't have.

Plus the kids don't really get much of a Summer with me this year. Their SD is trying to make up time he missed during softball season. And school starts back the 13th of August.

Which lets face it... that's gay!!!

So our already paid for vacation is the 2nd week of a new school year and they will be starting the year off bad by missing a week of school.

Note to self

Yeah, that about sums it up.

There are days where I feel like an 80 year old Dementia patient. I completely forget what I am doing while I am doing it!

This little rant you're reading right now is because I had a severe memory lapse last night , that went unchecked till this morning. I left the oven on all night!!!

I think I need those little post it notes to remind me of things to do. You know like they do for alzheimer patients.

A little sign above the sink " Shut off water", over the stove " Make sure oven and all burners are off", " Lock the door", I will be overtaken by little fluorescent notes.

I will have no more space on my walls for family pictures. Which is fine, because at the rate I'm going, I won't even remember who these people are.

Of course it could be fun, I could leave notes like this for my Dear Hubby....

Zombies have hearts to

So my youngest and I did a Zombie Walk.

So much fun! and we got to see the superMoon.

I bet you didn't know that we Zombies have big hearts, albeit dead and decayed, we are very giving creatures.

We hate to see other species go hungry.

We have donated canned goods to the local food pantry. Honestly, what are we going to do with breather food anyway? And we need to keep our food supply healthy... right?

Here are pics from our evening... Enjoy.

Our dresses

We were going for the "I just ate" look, Do you think we succeeded?

Our canned food donation

 We don't need this, and have yet to see any "Canned Brains" , we are hopeful
 they will come out with some soon tho.

Yummy, Mommy sure does have a tasty ankle!!!

It's a HORDE!!!!! RUN!


Poor kid had to dance for her supper

Shake what your Mommy Zombie gave ya!

Where are all the good brains at?

This one is my fave from the walk!
