Fun with Triniti
"Mamma! Look outside!"

"Ok, Trin... What am I looking at?"

"It's FROGGY outside Mamma!"

FROGGY!


"Triniti? What's on your face?"

"Make-up!"

"And who is make-up for baby?"

"Mommys! Make-up is for Mommys!!!"

eyebrows

And this one kind of speaks for itself.

Indecent proposal
So, I am on the phone with a friend (who's name I will withhold for now) and he asks me about my plans for tomorrow. I tell him I am hoping to be happily hung-over (post Christmas party tonight) and ask him why.

"I am having laser hair removal surgery tomorrow."

"Wow! Really? I've always wanted to have that done. I would love to not have to shave my legs and armpits anymore... Wait. Where are you having it done? ...Or do I even want to know??"

"My testicles. And you know, some of the surrounding areas. I'm tired of shaving them all the time."

"Oh wow... Uhhhh, so how much is that gonna run you?"

"Actually, it's not costing me anything. I have a friend who owns a place and she said she would let me have it done for free as long as I let her have two girls train on me."

"Oh man... You know, I've heard it hurts a little."

"Yeah, I'm a little nervous. Which is why I asked what you are doing tomorrow."

"Oh... OH! You want me to come with you?"

"Well, yeah. Might be nice to have someone there to hold my hand, you know, if it does hurt."

"Ummm, ok. I'll have to see if I can swing it."

"I'd appreciate it.

-pause-

"You realize, if I go, I have complete and uncensored blogging rights to this?"

"Baby, if you come with me, you can have before and after pictures!"

Center of Attention - Jackson Waters
LOCcrazydownload

You want your independence
But you won’t let me let you go
You wanna test the waters
And leave it on the empty shores

But I’ll take my time if you want to
And I’ll give you whatever you need
And I’ll wait a lifetime to give it to you
Give it to you

You think that you’re the sun
The whole world revolves around you
The center of attention
And everything is drawn to you

But I’ll take my time if you want to
And I’ll give you whatever you need
And I’ll wait a lifetime to give it to you
Give it to you

I would wait a lifetime
And I would wait for you
I would wait a lifetime
And I would wait for you

But I’ll take my time if you want to
And I’ll give you whatever you need
And I’ll wait a lifetime to give it to you
Give it to you

Mexican Chocolate Cake
Dude - I totally made a cake today.
From SCRATCH.
As in, not out of the effing Pillsbury box.
And not just any cake... An awesome cake.
A cake that is so unbelievably good, it's very existence cancels out every bad thing I've ever cooked. Possibly every bad thing I've ever done.
And let me tell you, I've cooked some seriously nasty, burned shit in my life.
But this... this piece of heaven on a plate?
Yeah, it undoes all of that. It rights all the evil food wrongs I've inflicted upon the Universe.
It may be perfection in cake form.
Mexican Chocolate Cake
If The Cake Lady could see me now... she'd dab her eyes and say, "my little girl's all grown up!"

If you want the recipe to this awesome thing, shoot me an email... link's on the right.

Daniel: So what's the problem, Sammy-o? Is it just Mum or is it something else? Maybe... school - are you being bullied? Or is it something worse? Can you give me any clues at all?

Sam: You really want to know?

Daniel: I really want to know.

Sam: Even though you won't be able to do anything to help?

Daniel: Even if that's the case, yeah.

Sam: OK. The truth is actually... I'm in love.

Daniel: Sorry?

Sam: I know I should be thinking about Mum all the time, and I am. But the truth is I'm in love and I was before she died, and there's nothing I can do about it.

Daniel: Aren't you a bit young to be in love?

Sam: No.

Daniel: Oh, OK, right. Well, I'm a little relieved.

Sam: Why?

Daniel: Well, you know - I thought it might be something worse.

Sam: [incredulous] Worse than the total agony of being in love?

Daniel: Oh. No, you're right. Yeah, total agony.

overheard - moose
"I'm not sure where he was... but it sounded like up-North somewhere. Where is this zip code?

"That's in Minnesota."

"Yeah, I guess he kind of sounded like he was from Minnesota. I think it was the way he said "moose" that sounded like someone from Minnesota."

"Yeah, that, or it could be that fact that he said "moose" at all."

Talk about your bad mornings...
It is really my own fault. I was sitting on the couch last night watching One Tree Hill and crocheting a scarf for Triniti when I looked at the clock and saw that it was 11:40. Why in the holy hell I was still awake at 11:40 on a school night is beyond me. So, I got up and checked on my girlies and then, after glancing at my email, headed to bed. I figured I'd be tired today for sure BUT I was getting off of work early and it is Friday, so no biggie.
Totally biggie.
I over slept and then had to run everyone through their morning things. Normally, being twenty minutes late wouldn't have killed us. But this morning, it was bad. Amanda hated me for screwing up the morning plans she and Camille had for before school, Emilee forgot her backpack and didn't realize it until half way to school and Triniti had two anxiety attacks and then got to school only to find that they were in an assembly which doesn't bode well with someone who needs routine.
It was crap.
But, on the plus side, today is Friday and while it is fucking cold here in the Lone Star State (no really, 20 degrees? That's effing cold.), we have plans tonight. Emilee's choir is singing Christmas carols in front of the court house and they will be lighting the town. So, the girls and I will be all bundled up and down with The Community celebrating December. It's all very Stars Hollow & Gilmore Girls :)
There will be pics.

Ok, I have to get to work but before I go, hop on over to RHSP's site and vote for me :)
One of my sneaky little readers must have nominated me again. I thank you for your loyalty despite the barrenness of my blog these days.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
