- It's raining. enough said
- My umbrella is in the car and I am in the house, thus i can't go to work because I'll get soaked, and I can't find my rain coat.
- I live on the second floor and my WOOD steps are very slippery when wet.
- I could fall down the stairs, break my leg and arm and be out of work for a long time. That helps NO one. I should stay home.
- My bed is so WARM.
- My apartment is so NOT warm.
- I'm really tired. I worked 5 1/2 Sunday and 10.5 hours yesterday. They should understand.
- I'm sure no one would notice the obits are missing from the evening paper.
- I might kill someone if I go.
- I don't have any bread to make a sandwich.
All sounded good to me. Alas, here I am. At work. doing the "responsible" thing. Oh aren't I super.

As of 12 p.m. today it NO LONGER WORKS AT ALL. I picked up my phone, flipped it open, and found nothing staring back at me. NOTHING! The key pad lights up but the screen is DONZO! I guess I flipped it open one to many times (or dropped it from a high up) :(
So now I need to go get a new phone. GREAT. Thank God I'm just made of money. It makes stuff like this so much easier to deal with (insert eye roll)

Buck up! Things aren't so bad. Don't let the small stuff solidify into glacier sized problems. If it helps repeat in your head as needed "I'm doing the best I can, some people just suck". Ahh I feel better already, not really (HEY MOPPER!). Sorry. You have a Halloween party to plan and set up for Saturday and it's going to be really hard to pull off if you don't get your LAZY ass up off the couch. Also try and think about how much fun the parties have been in the past and get in the SPIRIT already. Those candy bags and goody bags wont fill themselves, and wishing them done hasn't worked yet either so just DO IT. If you need motivation thinka bout the 15 kids who will be showing up at 4 p.m. on Saturday regardless if your ready for them or NOT.
You love this kind of stuff. The crape paper, balloons, cupcakes (I can't believe you aren't baking this year, chump) pinatas, and games. this is right up your alley. You look forward to this just as much if not MORE then the kids. But this year........well you pretty much suck. I know You're working 6 days a week. I know this means your spending your ONLY day off setting up, having, and cleaning up a party, but try to think of how much fun everyone has. Think about that. And BUCK UP!
I know you aren't excited about the Halloween party at work, but just shut up and participate. Make what you need to make, do what you need to do and stop acting like the world is ending. You're really bugging me.
And forget about that lady who said you have rude body language. She was a jerk.
So BUCK up. Moppy Mopper

Well aside form last night when I tripped and fell off my brother's porch steps. And I WASN'T even drinking. I'm not really sure what happen. Well........What happen was my brothers girlfriend and I walked outside on our way to Target, as I came out the door I noticed a few guys standing in the yard across the street. Yup. I was so distracted by GUYS, I wasn't paying attention and walked right off the porch. To be fair. Their steps are very high and the actual step is very narrow. In a nutshell....they suck. They are a danger to all. I, however was the one who fell victim, LITERALLY. I grabbed for the post spun myself around and landed hard on my wrist. Jan screams "OH MY GOD AMY!" Yes let's draw more attention to the fact I just face dove onto the road. I get up brush myself and go "Jan! what the hell" . and off we go. So maybe last night i wasn't to "on my game".
Anywho. Today i bought a bottle of water out of the machine at work. Water is $1.25 (highway robbery). I put in $2. The machine gave me $1.15 in change.........
does not equal $1.15

I walked into the house to put the invites on the table when i heard whispering coming form the bathroom. I walked around the corner and there stood two girls staring into the toilet.
Me~ What are you doing?
Both of them~ Hey Amy.
Me~ WHAT are you doing?
Jessica~ Rebecaa dropped something in the toilet, (turns to her sister) You're going to be in so much trouble.
Rebecca~ Shut up.
Me~What was it.
Rebecca~ This thing.
Rebecca~ This metal thing.
I walk over to the toilet and look in.
Rebecca~ But now i can't see it because it's all hazy because i peed in it.
Me~Uhm.....Ok then. I turn and leave the house.
Once outside I have this conversation
Me~ Hey FYI Rebecca dropped something metal in the toilet.
Jimmy~ Great. I'll hear all about it when i get inside, they tattle on each other even if it gets them both in trouble.
Me~That doesn't make any sense. George and i would have been like, Nobody say a thing!
Jimmy~ I know right, not them.
Me~ Well, have fun with that.

This is where it's important to mention the Smith's are my friends from BUFFALO, NY. Not my friends from North Carolina. THEY DO NOT LIVE IN NORTH CAROLINA, however it seems baby Smith will be making her grand entrance into the world in NORTH CAROLINA! I received a text message from soccermom's sister-in-law at 3:30 a.m. alerting me to this news.
WE joked about this happening. Her giving birth in North Carolina, but we REALLY didn't think it would happen, well we really HOPED it wouldn't. I told her to pack some duct tape and tape her self up if thinks started to.......leak. Bet she wishes she would have listened to ME.
Lucky for baby Smith, her moma one smart cookie. She took the car seat, over night bag, and assorted baby stuff, JUST IN CASE. Boy is her doctor going to be surprised when she comes home, she never told her she was going on this trip because she knew the doctor would advise against it. But it's Mr. Smith's brother. He was the best man.
I'll update when i know more. Poor soccermom, I can't imagine giving birth and then getting released from the hospital to drive 13 hours with a newborn you just pushed out of your body a few days ago. That isn't going to be fun.
I just thought to myself yesterday, "Well it's wedding day and i haven't heard any news about the baby coming so i guess she's in the clear". Her sister-in-law informed me the wedding had been over for 4 hours before they left for the hospital.
This little girl is going ot be trouble already........I can see that.

1.) What's cooking in YOUR crockpot?
2.) Find your one very favorite picture of Summer and write a poem about it.
3.) Pay tribute to a favorite blogger!
4.) When I look in the mirror...
5.) The top ten things I'd rather be doing than having sex with David Letterman
1)Let's see I made BBQ ribs in my slow cooker on Tuesday. They in a nut shell SUCKED. My slow cooker is well, acting a bit bitchy lately. Not sure what her problem is. Maybe she feels neglected, but if she would just understand that if she keeps ruining my dinner I'm going to neglect her more often. I mean. Hello. She sits at home all day, all i ask is that she cook my dinner RIGHT! Geezzzz slow cooker. I thought the point was to have make nice moist ribs, not saw dust. You know better! Don't make me take you on Maury!
Just fun in the sun and running around like a fool.
Knee deep in mud and soaked to the bones,
What fun is to learn to skip stones.
A day at the creek with my rod and my dad,
what can i say it ain't half bad!
4)When i look in the mirror I wonder who this person is. It's not the person I thought I would see staring back at me at 27. I never had the ideal life planned. I didn't think I would be married by a certain age and kids 2.5 years later, or anything like that. But I guess I just figured I'd met someone in college fall madly in love, get married and start a family. I guess I thought that would happen by the time i was 27. But it didn't. Well. It sort of did. I met someone in college fell madly in love and a year later it ended. No marriage, no kids. Just me and some boxes. When i look in the mirror I see a girl who doesn't know what she wants or how to figure it out. But I see a girl who's trying. A girl who's not giving up. I see my mom, my dad, my family, staring back at me wondering what happen to the little girl who knew exactly what she wanted out of life, all those years ago.
5)10 things I would rather do then Mr. Letterman.
10. I'd rather sit through another office meeting about paper usage.
9. I'd rather tar and feather myself.
8. I'd rather watch Cspan all day
7. I'd rather star on Rock of Love
6. I'd rather knit my self a noose
5. I'd rather debate World policy with Brittany Spears.
4. I'd rather vacation with the Bush's
3. I'd rather open mouth kiss my dog.
2. I'd rather take 50 1st graders to the fair, ALONE.
1. I'd rather sleep with the bald band director for Lettermans show.

I can't wait for Saturday, to have a day off. 1 day off before I start my next work week. Ahh. This needs to stop soon. On a happier note, Preggers, Jules and I are having a ladies night Saturday night. Mr. Preggers is going to watch Logan so us ladies can have some much needed girl time. Dinner and drinks with some trivia at the Kilt, maybe. I need to let off some steam, however it would really help if I could locate my debit card. Seems it's MIA. I have no idea where I placed. FANTASTIC.
I'm finally getting the ball rolling on setting up for the Halloween party. Well I did the invitations at least. That's a start.
My mom and I are starting weight watchers this week, I'll let you know how that goes for me.
have a great day everyone!

This little guy lifts my spirits, just look at him. you can't be upset after looking at that little face.
I just don't know what to do. I'm bummed about the guy, I'm bummed about work, I'm bummed about never having anytime off to do anything. The only thing I'm not bummed about is Mr. Ship. Finally.

She's my best friend in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD. but to be fair, she's earned that title. It's hers fair and square. None of my other friends have ever picked me up off a parking lot, changed my clothes after I'm thrown up ALL over myself, debated with me while I was drunk about "how I CAN'T sleep at the table", or rode the train to Pittsburgh TWICE to see me while i was in college. Yeah maybe I'll put her up for sainthood one day. She is a far better friend then me.
and if you swing by the cake wreck blog you'll see my BFF sitting front and center in the first photo. She's the girl in the crazy silver shirt.
