At some point in the past month or so I have become Murphy. Law, not Brown. I wish I was Murphy Brown though. There is no way Life would even consider killing her trucks fuel pump  AND kill her computer on top of it. She would just give it one of her steely glares and all would be right with the world.

Alas, that is not my life.

I am now the but of a joke some where. Even now that my truck has been repaired at a discount, I had to declare Tom’s car useless for the time being. Am I the only person who thinks it’s unsafe when the brakes grind and you need to use the e-brake to slow down?

No?

I didn’t think so.

So now that Tom has my truck and my computer has been turning itself off after 30 seconds, I now know what it feels like to be a 1950’s house wife.  I release the natives, I make them breakfast and clean up while they eat. Then I sit a watch kiddie cartoons until I can’t take it anymore and curl up in the fetal position on the couch and cry silently. After that I make lunch and clean up while they eat. After lunch is nap time and when I take on a project. This week I cleaned 2 closets washed the windows and organized my kitchen.

I only have 1000 squarefeet in my house. I’m going to run out of projects soon.

The first person who sends Geeksquad or a new computer can have Tom’s balls. I’m done with them anyway.

Getting to know YOU

The Q’s..

1. If you were to win an award today, what would it be for? The ability to ignore raging temper tantrums and sibling fights. Seriously. I have a kid wailing at my feet right now. Do I answer the call? No. I know it’s not an emergency.

2. What is your shoe style? I wear beat up sneakers 99% of the time. Strictly utilitarian. But that’s not my shoe style. I LOVE boots and high heels. Picture speak louder than word, so….


3  Does your car reflect your personality? Yes and no. I love my truck. It’s big, practical and is actually a lot of fun to drive. But if I didn’t have three kids I would have never bought it. I would have bought some thing low and fast, maybe even some old school muscle.


4. If you could take over someones body for a day..whose would you choose?
No one. I don’t want to be any one else. I don’t need to bogged down with knowing if I’m missing something fabulous. And if I can’t have the body to keep then I’m not going to waste my time.
5. Love or be loved? Talk about a loaded question. I have loved with out being loved back. I won’t do it again and I would never wish that on any one. I’ll take being the crazy cat lady down the street.
6. If you were on death row, what last meal would you choose? Finally an easy one. My grandma’s tacos or they let me make my own meatloaf and apple pie. Mash potatoes and steamed broccoli with LOTS of butter. Wash it all down with ice cold milk.  Maybe chase it down with a root bear float.
7. Have you been on vacation this Summer, if so where? Only in my head but I won’t go into detail. This isn’t THAT kind of blog.
8. What is your favorite food related guilty pleasure? Eating alone and savoring every bite and not having to share with any one.
