So i am a member of the SITS (Secret is in the Sauce) Group for bloggers and let me tell you!!!! TODAY they have everyone thinking of the BEST OF their blogs.
What a great idea this was!!! Not only did I wake up at 6:30 am today to read and post everywhere but it totally allowed me to re-read my posts and comments from all of you lovely amazing peeps!!!!
Talk about a friggen warm fuzzy!!!!
OK, so I have picked 4 of what I feel are my best posts..perhaps you have your own favourites and if so, let me know what they are!! I am also going to try to have a link put on the side where I can keep posting about Bests....your bests, my bests others bests. It will just be the BEST!!!
So this is what I have come up with...in no particular order
There was the day that the BLOGGESS appeared on my site
Oh, reading this was great...it was when Mr. Insatiable told me he really likes my blog...and then showed me how much lol....god I love that man!!
Some questions do have to be asked, and who better to ask??
This post was great and also had a great response!!! It's all about being true to who you are!!
So I told you all how Seistor and I were on a volley ball team - just a house league of beach volley ball...anyhow, so today after a 12 year hiatus, I stepped back on the court and played! I totally had a blast getting out in the sun, with people who were my age(ish) and doing something that I absolutely LOVE!!!! I fucking love the outdoors and playing sports....call me a jock or whatever, I really do though...anyhow, so out of 4 games we played, we actually won 1 game! To top it off, I served 5 in a row and had to rotate out after my 5 (meaning I was too friggen awesome to keep playing as my awesomeness was really putting the other team to shame)....what ever way you look at it, I felt on top of the world and I haven't felt that happy and excited in a long time (for myself...) Mr Insatiable said that he was proud of me for doing something for myself and gosh darn it, I totally do too!!!!
Highlights from the night:
1. I didn't talk myself out of going...I didn't make any excuses up or anything - I just went for it.
2. I didn't suck like the horror of a nightmare I had yesterday about it
3. Time with my sister really is something that grounds me COMPLETELY
4. I am a total ass and really shouldn't be able to talk!!
5. Team Canada - this amazonian-like woman who was on one of the opposing teams, was a total skag! I'm just sayin...when you play volley ball - and you serve, and the ball hits the net - ITS NOT IN PLAY!!! I don't care what league you are in, it's not a playable ball...not even for Team Canada
6. i totally had the visual of Goose/Maverick playing volleyball in Top Gun throughout the whole time....there weren't any icemen or hollywoods - but hey...it's not a movie! I will admit this...I am singing "Highway to the danger zone" as I am typing...
Observations - the musings of Danon out in public not supervised by her children:
1. there are a lot of dumb girls out there...like really dumb.
2. those same dumb - non-intelligent girls - waste their money on college when they aren't retaining info they are being taught
3. some people just have fuckin style.
4. i secretly am jealous of big sunglasses! I want them - is there a secret handshake? Can I please know it??? I have a fruckin round face and can't for the love of christ find glasses that work on my face....SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!
5. when you own an establishment that has outdoor volleyball courts and a BAR - and just for shits and giggles...it's 90 fickin degrees outside..how can you RUN OUT OF BOTTLED WATER????? someone didn't want to carry another case out to the bar did she?? well..that only means one thing...NO TIP.
ok...back to he story...
Anyhow,so after the last game was played and the feet were washed, the team was standing around talking about what they were going to do afterwards..."drinks here" or "my house my house...may parents aren't home"...Seistor says, "Yah maybe, but we've gotta go now" I say "I have to go home and shower with my kids"...cuz apparently I am a sick individual...WTF took over my mouth?! OMG I am a total ass!!!
Seistor really loved it - and likely now has an additional lifetime of ammo against me after that beautie! I just laughed...
Funny, how I haven't laughed until tears were in my eyes lately...till my belly ached until today. I don't know if it was the fact that my sister and I were together or if it was the fact that I actually started to feel like the me that used to be before the three...maybe a little of each - Whatever the case, I am totally smiling still and can't wait until next Tuesday!!
Gonna take it right away to the danger zone...
I feel and fear that this post should have some sort of a disclaimer though...here it is...
****If you are not a mother, have always thought that pregnancy is a magical experience, if you are a soon to be mother, or if you have not every understood how women get to that psychotic level of "angry mom" please don't read. If you find yourself offended by mothers ranting about things on blogs, or feel that perhaps the things that I say below are offensive, please keep your feelings to yourself...for I have had one bad fucking day! Also, if you feel as if this is of concern, please don't...I just need to get this off my chest to ensure that I don't take it out on my kids. After all, I am only human - aren't I entitled to a bad day?
Hey...You...over there! Ya, I m talking to you...I see you sniffling like a little whiny sniffleywhinerson. You are making my head spin faster than a propeller. I am trying to see every possible good innocent and amazing thing that you mean to me right now; however, I am finding it extremely hard to do this right now.
I can't tell you just how friggen exhausted I am of listening to you cry and whine every time you don't get what you are demanding from me or anyone else you are encountering. I have no idea who you think you are, or what you think this is doing to make the end result positive but hunny, you are pissing on the wrong lady's tree with this bull shit attitude.
Yes, I really think that our bonding experience yesterday at Walmart was amazing. Aw...you remember, how you were snuggled on the FLOOR screaming your friggen head off that "I hate you mommy" and how I should "GET AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY from me NOW!" in such a high pitch shrill. And wasn't it amazing to meet our new friend Mr. Security Guard? Oooh, mommy is soo happy you are branching out to meet new people but FYI sugar lips..THIS IS NOT HOW IT'S TO BE DONE. I have no idea what it is about the tone of any child's voice when they whine that makes me want to lock myself in a closet and drink the hand sanitizer to put myself out of the misery, but it's got to stop!
I can't tell you how many circuits I feel I blow when the whining is a result of me telling you "no" for jumping off of the treadmill or from one bed to another. When I tell you to hold my hand in the parking lot, it does not require a full out dramatic performance that should only be seen in Splendour in the Grass...and yes, even though you have already cut your own hair, and it may work for that only reason, I AM NOT THE PERSON YOU SHOULD BE DOING THIS TO!
apparently the word MOM means
Maybel - Im gonna walk all over you until you use the drum sticks from my little tykes set to poke your eyeballs out.
It could also mean that
My sanity as i
knOw it is over for the rest of
I have absolutely no idea how to combat these feelings; however, I have to tell you that getting this rant off my chest is totally helping and now that I think of it, I really want to know what the spectators were thinking when they say this little angelic face that I love with all of my entirety turn into the thing from the Grudge. Were they like "is that her kid?" "what a bad mother" "oh, shut up kid!" "oooh what a rough day that mother has had, and look she has on clothes that don't fit too" "she needs to get her hair done -- BAD" or were they oblivious to the surroundings...did they perhaps walk through the experience with muted ears? Perhaps not the latter, and I really don't care about what they were thinking, because, I had a bad fucking day!
I had such a bad day that all I wanted to do was hug the crap out of that little monster to make her know how insanely bitch-crazed I was over this outburst. To make it worse, when we got into the car and I started the silent treatment to everyone around me so I didn't say things I felt at that time, all she could do was cry and say "Momma, I am so sorry I was such a bad girl. It's just so hard to be a big good girl...like you"
ya....the next thoughts are still clear in my head now the day after...
for the thoughts I had.
for the way I fantasized about screaming (but totally held my shit together so that has to count for something right?)
that the incident still happened and that there wasn't any getting out of it
but mostly, finding myself in complete
for her realizing that
If you or someone you love has had a bad day, I really hope that you can see past the shit and mess of it to see just how much the people in your life mean to you. I can't tell you the total 180 that ensued from yesterdays hot mess to today's amazing day at the zoo with our family...I am just glad that I didn't drink the sanitizer....maybe tomorrow!!
Have a great day and we'll talk soon!!
Today has really been a special day though. Belly woke up at 5 am. She wanted to watch the new Barbie movie we rented. That is just amazing at that early of hour of the day. Then she woke up her sister, and they watched this riviting movie again.
The dood then comes downstairs at 6:30 am to start the day. Daddy was working for the most part. He made some amazing mother's pretty darn happy with his brunch so that was nice.
The kids and I took a long brisk walk down to pick up the van from him at work and then we started our mission: Give flowers to all the important women in our lives. We started with Mr. Insatiable's mom. A nice visit that turned into tears, and 2 hours later we were off. We visited with my grandmother, who was so surprised and shocked she had tears in her eyes because we stopped by to see her. We had a visit at my mom's and then went to the cemetary to give some flowers to my grandma. The anniversary of her passing is upcoming on Tuesday. We left some beautiful daisy's and tulips and I think that the shady lady visiting the GIANCOLA's grave wanted them. She was totally eyeing up this arrangement we brought. Maybe I'll check tomorrow to see if they are still there.
Anyhow, we then picked Mr. Insatiable up and went to his partents again and had a great dinner. Steak, potatoes, salad, olives, bread and grilled veggies. DELISH!
Anyhow, so what did you chicas do for your mother's day? Do you get spoiled with flowers/affection? Did your kids make you something?
I'll tell ya, my kids were pretty crafty. I love homemade gifts because the sentimental attachments...lol. Sophia and Bella made me 2 things..I got 2 sunflower plants they grew, two book marks and these cards...I was given two plant pots they painted and the dood made me a mug. It's the cutest!!
Anyhow, I think that this post is on the lame side but I wanted to get my ass back in gear to write another post. I'ts part of my regimine to get back on track. Anyhow, I am done for the day...Tomorrow will be another brilliant day in my brilliant life. I know you're totally clinging onto the edge of your seat.
I hope you mother's out there have a wondful day. You all deserve the best of the best!
Ok, don't get tooo excited but this is my 2nd post in a row!!! Me thinks life is back on track!!! Ok, so while I was on this incredibly long and eventful haiatis, I was the winner of a pretty amazing contest.
Miranda, from Wearing Ink on my Sleeve had a fantastic give-a-way on her blog (it was her first one). The idea was that she was taking 4 trips and wanted to make a sound-track for each leg of the trip. Enteries had to be of 3 songs for each destination and she would select the winner!
Well....now that you know the end of the story, (me winning) I wanted to share with you first, the reason why I won -- sheer musical genius and also the pics I took...
My entries were friggen on par! Anyhow, go check out the link above and you can see for yourself.
Miranda, officially you wrap the nicest gifts ever and I reallly love your labels. I think you are an in the closet scrapper (scrap book maker - a new word definition I created).
So when I found out I won, Mir sent me an email "this little diddy is on it's way"
Well, I have the charger and the computer and some pictures...let's not skirt around this shit girls!!!
As my last post left you all clinging on to your panties you have recieved from the panty pyramid..I have a few pics to show you from my own entries and also some that were submitted to be a part of the
