Out For The Count!!

31 Dec

Oops.  I didn’t post yesterday.  It got away from me.

It’s hard to post on my boring days but yesterday was anything but boring.

My day started out lovely.  I got to be by the water with my brothers…

My brothers, Ralphie and Toby. Yes, they lick their butts.

My sisters and I (and our husbands) are helping my mom with her dogs since she’s carrying a Handicap Parking Pass.  My mom’s getting better so eventually I won’t get all the alone time with the boys.   My mom has MS but she’s normally a walking maniac.   A lot of people don’t know that she has MS because she moves so well.  At first, we thought my mom’s back problems stemmed from an MS flare from the stresses of my dad’s sickness/death.  She fessed up that when she fell at my sister’s on October 9th, she did do some damage to her lower half.  We were landscaping my sister and BIL’s new house and my mom (within 10 minutes of starting the project) jumped on a shovel to get some real depth in the dig.  She fell backwards and broke her pubis maximus in three spots and tore her labrum.  CRAZY LADY!!!  Pretty sure her brain was unaffected.

My sisters and I should have known she was going to do something like this before because she thinks she’s invincible and tries to fly.  We’ve all encountered her falling while doing very stupid things.

ANYWAYS, the day progressed.  Who girl and I took Sophee for a walk as well which lasted over 3 miles.  Sophee didn’t move from the couch for the rest of the day.  Can you say, “OUT…of…SHAPE”?

Okay, there’s no easy way to explain the next relationship.  The kids and I went to a birthday party for Who’s boyfriend, Deeg’s Grandma.  She turned 80!!!  It was from 2-4 so Mick couldn’t come.  He was working.

Awesome food at the PAR TEE

Deeg's parents, Deeg's Grandma and Who Girl...

I had good intentions to make dinner last night but was sucked in to going out to meet friends for dinner.  I can’t ever turn down an invite.

By the time I came home, I was totally whooped.  Bed at midnight and I was out for the count….

Ebay or Gamestop?

15 Aug

I’ve only made purchases on Ebay and it was always successful… too successful. 

The boys decided they want the PS3 and the Wii gaming systems.  In turn, they want to sell all their Xbox 360 games (at top dollar, of course).  Everybody’s gotta make a buck so Gamestop was going to give them $5 for most of their $60 games. 

Before we “give” the games to Gamestop, I’m going to try to sell them on Ebay.  I’m nervous because I don’t want to spend $ to sell them.  Being I don’t know what I’m doing, I very nervous I could do just that.  I’m taking it easy and I’m starting small (very, very small).  I’ve only listed 2 games to see how it goes (Stuntman Ignition and Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe). 

Today, I wore my Banana Republic skinnies with one of The Who’s shirts she purchased from Marshalls.  My hoochie shoes are from Journey’s.

I just realized that not only am I going to be lost when my little girl goes back to school because I’ll be missing her company but I’ll also be missing her clothes.  I’m being double-dinged.

Since I felt crippled after yesterday’s 16.61 (every hundredth counts), I went for a nice walk with The Roo (not really cause he was belly achin’ the whole time).  Brucee had practice so it was a perfect evening to walk.   Before he’d agree to go with me, Roo made me demonstrate how fast we would have to walk if he was going to accompany me to Cold Stone Creamery.  He thought he could handle it.

Well, the selfish boob sweet darling couldn’t.  He was at least 10-20 feet behind me the whole time.  I’m sure we looked like quite the pair. 

After I secretly took the above pic, he demanded, “ERASE IT”.  I emailed it to myself as quick as I could so he could see me erase it from my phone.  Roo does not want to be blogged about.

I asked Roo to take my picture by the fountain.  He said “no” four times and finally did it.  What a nice pic, huh?  Off center, water shooting out of my penile belly and I look pregs. 

It was only 3 miles but because I wore my Reebok Easytone’s, my legs felt crAAA Zy.  I seriously felt like I had RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome). 

I sang to the children allll the way home.  I love family time.
