You Are Candy Corn
Your Halloween personality is whimsical, colorful, and creative.
You see Halloween as a time to get your creative juices flowing.

Each year, Halloween can't start soon enough for you.
You tend to go all out for Halloween. You decorate like crazy and always dress up.

My full intent was to post of picture of me in my devil ears or one of my little Hannah Montana, but damn office machines are not co-operating this morning--sorry!!!

Calling out on the BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!

OK--it cannot just be me who finds something wrong with this:

In West Hollywood, a white republican (Palin) manequin hangs in effigy on a main road.
W. T. F????????????? According to WEHO's mayor--it's Free Speech and personal freedom on private property.

Believe me, if it was an African American manequin hanging there, the "good" Reverend Al and Jesse would be losing their shit over it. Marches would be held, rallies would be happening and people would trespass onto the property to have it taken down as it would be considered a "hate Crime" by the black community.

BULLSHIT--it works both ways people

$2.39 AND don't hate on me!!!

So I paid $2.39 a gallon today for gas in the lovely Bowling Green!!! So happy, I could have peed inmy pants--actually, I sneezed whilst pumping, so I probably did pee.

Damn Childbirth...anyheew, I digress

DO NOT HATE ON ME BUT..............I am 95% done with my Christmas shopping as of today--A Woo, A Hoo!!! I know, I know--I'm "one of those people", but damn if feels nice. I have to pick up a couple things for DH, but other than that--I AM DONE. Now I just have to keep certain people out of my hiding places and we are good.

Last note--a BIG shout out and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Elle The Pirate over at Beauty and the Beer. Not a funnier Beauty on the blogosphere. I think she's like 29 again or something this year--but hop over to the right on my links and go wish her a happy birthday!!!

Happy Birthday......

I know I didn't call you when you put your new cell number in the card you sent. I know I didn't send you a card for your birthday. I just don't know how to talk to you after 2 years.

The hurt and anger is still there and then out of the blue, you sent the card for my birthday. I didn't know what to think or how to respond, so I didn't.

But I hope that you had a great 40th birthday too. I hope that you have made new friends who showered you with love like mine did for me. I hope you have found some happiness in your life. I hope you have finally pulled your shit together and removed that very large chip from your shoulder.

I hope nothing but the best for you--I can't let you back in, I can't try and fix you anymore--I don't have the energy to give you and your issues. I miss my God daughter and pray that all is well for her. But I cannot let you back in.

Happy Birthday. turned out ok

Baby Lurker's School pic turned out really good for a change--this is really no surprise since I have been nothing less than pissed off at the last few pics, so I only ordered a 5x7 and some wallets. Oh well--I'll just go make the illegal copies and distribute them to the fam.

A day well spent.........

OK--so the day got started with a stupid traffic detour that routed us in a big circle, but THANK YOU VZ Navigator--you found us a way to FORT WAYNE, IN. Where a gal pal and I blew a big old chunk of change at the Vera Bradley Fall Outlet sale!!!!!! No, this is not us below, but look at the PILES on the tables!!!! And there were rows, upon rows, upon rows stacked high with all things Vera.

Yesterday seemed very mild, but still bustling--I guess all the crazy breaks out this weekend. When you pay, you are ushered into another part of the building where there are MORE ROWS of what I call cattle runs--I mean like 5 rows deep (you know those things you wait in line at Cedar Point?). I asked the nice lady--at ONE of the FORTY registers that were available- "WHY?" She said that those cattle runs will be FULL over the weekend with people waiting to check out--and they will wait in line outside the room to even get into the cattle runs.
Whilst I originally debated my need to take a full day of PTO off to go to this thing on the first day, I am SO glad I did and didn't wait to go until the weekend.
Gal Pal and I headed off north to the outlets in Fremont, IN. COACH OUTLET PEOPLE--however, since I had just blown a wad, I could not allow myself to buy another purse--GP gave in though, I'll just borrow her's someday--heehee.
Children's Place, Bath & Body, Bass, Polo and GAP were some of the other places that drained our wallets, but we had a great time. Until we realized what time it was--YIKES. Calls were made home--yes, yes, we're alive and on our way home--and on the road we got!! It was so hard to keep track of time since it was cloudy, dark, cold and gloomy all day--it just didn't seem like it was that late--but whatever--the men will survive--let them see how it is when they take off on their "Golf" trips.
We made it home and scarfed down some Chipotle (mmmmm.....Chipotle......insert Homer voice here) and we drug ourselves back home to the country. Such a fun day!!!
Next "Girls trip"? We're thinking Great Lakes Crossing and perhaps a stop at Sommerset!!!
