I used this natural shampoo and I have to say I smell pretty good, it’s a shame no one is here to enjoy being around me and my hair. And I don’t think the dog has noticed or she’s just not saying anything. Besides the pleasant scent, Naked Naturals is free of harsh chemicals and is suppose to make your hair stronger.

One vote will move it to page one, so I will fix the link if necessary.
I've had a CafePress Shop for years now and there are several T-Shirts available and different sayings on the back of them. They look like someone has pinned a note to the back of a T-Shirt. Like a joke! The front of the T-Shirt is plain. Voting is easy, there are 3 blue buttons at the right, the one in the middle is where you go to vote and I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

When asked to be creative and make up my own joke my mind seals up tighter than a steel drum. Here is my feeble attempt:
What did the psychiatrist say to his new patient the oyster?
I can’t help you if you won’t open up to me.
See, I told you.

Saturday the husband and I spent more time together than usual. We took an hour trip to visit his older sister, then back to visit his mom that lives with his younger sister. Sunday we went to the Cleveland Cavs Basketball game.
We were in the car a lot this weekend and when stuck together without TV, we get into in depth conversations. Politics, history, life after death, religion, the boys, my broken windshield wiper, the leaky faucet and how cute our dog is. I think we covered it all this past weekend.
This post is coming to conclusion now, because Dell is telling me we need to check our emails and the dog is telling me we just check them. I have to go settle this argument.

My baby Boy #1 is getting married in August. Times like these having you looking back on their childhood. I remember getting him ready for his first days in Kindergarten. We had a list of supplies needed. I remember discussing his crayons, pencils, erasers and I said, "Oh we need to get a pair of shoes for Gym."
To which that sweet little face looked up to me and asked, "Why do we need to get shoes for him?"

I was putting a "After the Rain" scented Renuzit Air Freshener in my little office. I don't know why. I can't smell.

Let me paint you a mental picture of Valentine’s Day at my house last night. I’m clutching a Nyquil shot glass in one hand, a fist full if tissues in the other, red nose, and I’m in my bathrobe and slippers by 7:00 pm. If that ain’t bringin sexy back, I don’t know what is. The husband was doing the taxes and if we didn’t have children, we’d have enough to go to Las Vegas. No discussion necessary, when it comes to vacation ideas, Las Vegas is on the top of our list.
There are plenty of things to do in Las Vegas besides gamble, so much so that the last time we went, we vowed to get to the seafood restaurant we kept passing up the time before last that we were there. We knew nothing about it, but we were intrigued. We didn’t know we were stepping into the most expensive restaurant we’ve ever been in. There were couples there that just got married in one of those Las Vegas Chapels, couples celebrating anniversary’s, we had stumbled into romance. The husband ordered an entire lobster and I had humongous crab legs. Black Jack had been very good to the husband that day! While dining like royalty, we discussed what was next for the evening. We have been to Las Vegas quite a few times but never gone downtown, we’ve always stayed on The Strip. When our waiter brought our check we asked him what was the easiest way to get downtown. He excused himself for a minute. When he came back guess what he said?
“Our limo will take you.”

I have a long weekend to recover and plan on taking plenty of Nyquil by the time I have to go back to the new job. My goal is to be able to breath out of both nasal passages at the same time. As it stands now there is no air go in or out of either, that has to be serious.
While at work last night, the dog hid one of my slippers. Today I walk through the house with one warm foot and one cold foot, I'm not sure if this situation will hinder my recover, one can only hope the slipper will show up soon.

1. Eat breakfast
2. Scratch the dogs neck.
3. Separate your M&M's by color, eat brown ones first, then yellow, green, orange, blue and finally the red ones.
4. Stare out window planning your next post about the weather while waiting for a widget laden blog to open.
5. Eat lunch
6. Sort socks
7. Sharpen pencils
8. Try to eat the candy coating off an M&M before chocolate inside melts. (This is a tricky one!)
9. Look up big words in the dictionary that other bloggers use and vow to use at least one big word a week. Three syllables minimum.
I tried to make a list of 10, but I'm exhausted from trying it all. I'm on the orange M&M's already.

I'm not a bitter mom, pissed off because my kids are home to bother me. They are teenagers and don't get up until noon, they also keep the dog occupied for me. We are suppose to be teaching the future of the world self sufficiency, but what we are teaching them is to all want to grow up to be teachers. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I just think we might want a little variety. And in the dead of winter, when are little darlings have just entered the workforce, do we really want them waking to their alarm saying, "Dude, do I have to go to work this morning, it's really cold and I don't know what to wear."

I innocently drove over a cable stretched across the road that is used to monitor traffic. It broke loose, in my rear view mirror I could see the cable whirling around like an out of control fire hose. 30 seconds from home, I made the split second decision to continue. Safely in my driveway I exited the car to the sound of hissing, my tire went completely flat before my eyes. That is when I started to talk to myself. "No one is going to believe this."
"Should I call the police?"
I settled on calling the husband.
"Huh?" He asked.
When he got home he took the flat tire off and found part of the cable wrapped around the wheel. "Ahh haa! Evidence!"
I started making phone calls. The police station, city hall, the county sheriff's office. No one knew who was responsible for the outstretched cable across our little community's road. I even called the local newspaper, who took me as a woman just trying to find someone to pay for her flat tire. "Hey pal, just put some more ads in your paper and forget any news worthy stories. I'll get to the bottom of this myself."
Now it was in the middle of winter. The idea of setting up a lawn chair next to the broken cable crossed my mind, briefly. I wasn't sure if it was worth the $12.95 tire patch. You can say I owe it to society to find the culprits and bring justice to our fine community. But for all I knew I'd be delving into an unknown, secret inter-galactic, organization that is monitoring Earths traffic patterns. And I don't know if I up for that.

"Save yourselves, get right with God!"

We are in need of a little debt management so I got a part time job. I’m leaving the husband in charge of the household for two evenings a week. I know, it’s a scary thought. But working in the evenings will free up my days for blogging. The dog would never forgive me if I left her all day either. I quit my day job to raise her.
While I was away last night, the dog ate a stick of butter, nobody did the dishes, Boy #3 “forgot” to take a shower, the garbage wasn’t taken out, but I have a new source of blogging material. So along with that plus the husband remembered to study with Boy #3 for his vocabulary test today and they didn’t let the dog track mud into the house. They’re scared of me. The studying and mud thing are the two things I told them to do, the rest I just cross my fingers and hoped for the best.
This morning while cleaning up the effects of the dog eating a stick of butter, I was planning my day. Wednesdays I usually pay the bills, so I try not to think of them until then, it doesn’t always work, that’s why I got a job. A good debt consolidation program would save me some time. I don’t have payments taken out of our account automatically because I would have problems if I did that, bank problems. So I pay bills the old fashion way. I write checks and mail them. I will only pay online if there is no fee. It would be nice to combine some of these bills.

An hour later when the husband felt safe to approach me, he looked at me and I looked at him. Then we both started to laugh,
"I could be dead out there and you wouldn't even know."
"Nah, I would have got hungry eventually and wondered where you were."
