Gee, my blog has turned into picture central the last couple days. I swear I post words sometimes too. It’s been a long day. My plan was to come home and take my quiz, but I got up before 7 which is harsh and unreal for me, I worked at church for almost 6hrs and I battled the allergist with Hannah. Neither of us got a nap. I barely did school with Jeremiah. I made frozen cheez...

I just wrote the following rebuttal @motheringmag to this article one of their “experts” wrote on tattooing. ~~~~~ Danielle LaPorte is an arrogant, misinformed person. If one looks up statistics, about 1 in 6 people experience tattoo regret. Working in a tattoo shop, I can tell you the true figure is more like 1 in 3...

AnnabelleRambler is amazing!
She sent me a bunch of yarn to knit hats for the homeless shelter with!! I got the package today, which was perfect timing since I had just finished one. The yellow yarn is currently looking for a pattern… :-D Many thanks Annabelle!!!
Just realized the co-pay for the allergist will be due tomorrow when we go. I don’t have any money. Trying not to have a panic attack. Also, and contributing to the panic I feel welling up inside me is this first English assignment. I have to take a 10 multiple choice question quiz on an article. I read the article. That seems to easy. Am I now equipped to take the quiz? If I attempt...
Just realized it’s Tuesday night already. I haven’t even read the articles I have to read and understand for the quiz I have to take by Friday. Also, Hannah’s allergist appointment is first thing in the morning and I’ve yet to fill out all that paper work that came in the mail last week. I am not normally a procrastinator. This week, I am.
You're allowed to be jealous of my dinner.
I soaked the chicken in buttermilk for 20hrs. I fried it, made twice baked potatoes and mixed veggies. The potatoes came out great, I’d never made them before. I microwaved 6 potatoes for half of forever (10mins?) then scooped the insides out like you do with an avocado. In a mixing bowl I combined the tater innards with a small container of reduced fat sour cream, huge bacon bits...

Just turned off The Legend of Earthsea (kids weren’t paying it any attention) and turned on Ponyo (I’m the only one watching it). Guess it’s a Hayao Miyazaki day. Too bad we don’t have My Friend Totoro LoL
What the absolute crap?
A UPS truck just pulled up… to deliver a box that my Uncle mailed to himself at our address because they can’t have mail delivered to the condo they’ve rented to live in, in Pigeon Forge. Cause it would be hard, after months of living there, to get a PO box? Not that it matters, I’m just crabby. But this means I now can expect a sudden visit from them, whether...
Right before my little break down last night, the kids and I had been tooling around Walmart killing some time and buying command hooks and milk. On the 6mile drive out there my car had run wonderfully. When I turned it on to come home, something was off. The car was shaking and making weird noises. I made it as far as the Advanced Auto Parts where they computer checked my car and told me...
I had to follow madeinbrazil back
because her first 2 blog pages referenced Helena Bonham-Carter, Pirates, Beetlejuice, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Books, Harry Potter and wanting KFC over Subway (though I love Subway, too). Obviously she is in awesome person with exquisite taste and high intelligence. Welcome! LoL!

In totally unrelated news
Hannah has so many mosquito bites and one is literally the size of half a ping pong ball. It is stressing me out because she’s so little, I don’t want that poison in her system but she can’t even have benedryl because she has that allergy test Wed morning. Which is going to be absolute maddening hell. We have to be at the allergist’s an hour and a half before she...
I am so angry
at my children that I’m shaking. It all started with a tiny little thing… I bought a diet Pepsi cause I have a headache and thought maybe the caffeine would help, and I told Hannah to stay out of it. She didn’t, and I accidentally bumped it. She hadn’t put the lid on it. 16oz of diet Pepsi exploded all over my kitchen. When I came down stairs this morning the 2 liter...
I’m a little off today. I woke up cranky. I slept in, late, but still woke up in a foul mood. I wanted to just randomly punch people. The only problem with this was the only people I was around were my children, ha ha. No punching happened. I set out chicken to thaw to make friend chicken with baked potatoes and mixed veggies for dinner. Took Hannah to ballet, where she barely...
My first English class just popped up online. I have until Friday to complete the first quiz. I am already panicking.
My lips are numb.
Bactine tastes like crap. It also burns your eyes. Ask me how I know? Okay, I’ll tell you. My nose ring started bothering me today, and my nose was getting sore. I’ve worn the same enameled ring in it since the beginning of April so I assume I wore the clear coat off and the metal is starting to irritate my nose. I put the ring they pierced it with back in, even though...
Ha. I showrd those Allergies who’s boss. I took a single dose (for 24hrs) of Claritin AND a single Benedryl pill. I often have to mix the two. Tonight however, I’m discombobulated. I’m going to go lay back in the houch now and then kids can just watch TV.
I forgot to take some Claritin this morning
By the time we got home from church my allergies were bothering me. I kept meaning to take some, but I got side tracked by kids and lunch and all etc. But then about an hour ago I was trying to remember if I’d taken any, and I couldn’t remember, and I didn’t want to take any incase I had taken some I didn’t want to over dose. But now I feel like my allergies are trying...
GAH OHMYGOD MY NIECE JUST PULLED THE NEEDLES OUT OF THE LACE SCARF I’M KNITTING AFTER I EXPRESSLY SAID DON’T TOUCH THAT!
Trying not to be childishly resentful that SIL &BIL left neice w/me & went for a romantic walk in the woods when my DH is always at work.

My alarm didn't go off
I was supposed to be at church at 8. Crystal called and woke me up at 8:15 with a “Hey there honey, you comin’ to work today?” Oops! Crap!! I was in a dead sleep too. She told me not to worry about it, that they had 3 people scheduled to work the baby nursery and no kids for it yet. Since the event started at 8 and it was a breakfast, chances are we weren’t going to...
I want to make a chicken casserole
One of the throw back ones, like you see on TV with the chunks of chicken and a creamy sauce, with lots of veggies and a bread crumb topping, all steaming and pretty. But the only recipes I can find are chicken, can of cream of mushroom soup, frozen veggies. I want to make one that *doesn’t* taste like hamburger helper goo. Sigh.
I failed to mention
That I have to be back at church at 8:00am to do childcare for 2hrs, and then go grab a $5 spray on tan. At 1 I have to pick up Jeremiah’s little buddy and head to a state park 45minutes away for Nana’s party, which all extended family drove in to town for (some from 8hrs away) so it’s likely to be long. I want a nap.
I still have to make potato salad
I left my house at 2:30pm. Hit the yarn shop & po, drove to tae kwon do, made a mad dash through the grocery store, back home in a panic to unload & put up cold groceries (the non-refrigerated items are still littered all over my kitchen floor where we dumped them in our hurry), thru Burger King’s drive thru and the gas station and over to church. From there we hit the used...
