life of a slacker blogger

yeah that's me..........I am a total slacker blogger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! not that I have a huge following....not that anyone would notice if I even did a new blog, but sometimes life just happens and gets in the way.........and for me personally the last 6 months have been a haze of sorts.....sure I have some highlights of it in my minds eye, but for the most part, focusing on the whole picture, its not there......Life changed for me as I knew it almost 6 months ago, a sudden death in the family rocked my world to its core!!! I just could not fathom how much of a loss I would is a very strange feeling to deal with......and unfortunately I have not done a very good job of it.....not a very good job at all, I am slowly starting to get out of my funk, but still feel there is a long ass hill to climb to get to the beginning of feeling normal I apologize for not blogging, which ironically is quite maybe soon it will be a more frequent thing

smile and wave boys, smile and wave

WHO KNEW the penguins would have the perfect analogy for things!!! LOL!!! I come from a family of Dems.....who turned their kids into republicans!!! LOL, mom despises the fact that 4 of her 5 kids are gulp OMG republicans!!! the 5th, well we don't know about him because he just votes to vote, and really does not take sides.....he is a close your eyes and vote type of guy......but that is my brother, votes in local elections because he liked their name or whatever.....anyway........yes it was assumed by my other brother, that *I* in fact was "gotten too" and voted end of the phone conversation went DEAD silent.....and he was like are you still there?!?! and I said, tell me YOU did not just accuse me of voting Democratic!!? he said oh out of all of us, I thought you were the most likely to get "shown the light" LMAO!!! I was like did you not grow up with me!?! do you not know who I am!!!??? OMG I cannot believe you would think that!!! he was like whew......good to know!! ha ha

yes, my parents, my aunts and uncles (except one) are all dems....every last one of life at our family gatherings is well lets say.......a sight to behold!!! I made the mistake of mentioning something about politics at my son's 3rd birthday...and BOY OH BOY it was not good, I was accused of being a complete moron by my father!!! I was being ganged up on, and I called my husband in for back up!!! LOL so it was me, dh and my uncle against the rest of them!!! lets just say it was a memorable party!!! so how could I possibly become a republican it was asked.....

and I simply views are just that.....MY VIEWS!!! I made my own choice.....I made the decision of who I should vote for....not anyone else!!! and if MY views do not go along with yours, well then sorry but I don't agree!!!! and we should agree to disagree!!! LOL like that would ever happen in my outspoken family!!!!

so I firmly believe the Penguins have it right.....the new motto of my life is "smile and wave, boys, smile and wave"!!! I don't always follow it, works

I have often wondered when blogging became such a "competition"? I mean really.....its all about stats, hits,sponsors and all that crap, that sometimes it just amazes me.....I guess I just don't understand it....

I started this blog, because I was asked to contribute to a 'group' blog, and well life got in the way, but the person took exception to it, and said my services were no longer needed....which was fine in many ways, but the way it was said was just plain I started this one on the advice of a friend, who actually stood up for me...LOL not that I am not good at voicing my, I gave it a is just a place for me to come and vent or what the heck ever...its not about how many comments I get, how many hits, or how many whatever....its just my little place in the www to say what I want when I want to well whomever happens to be reading my blog at the time!! LOL which I do say is not a lot by the 'standards' out there these days.....

If people read it fine, if they don't then that is fine too, I just have those few times in life when I want to share what I am thinking....I am I guess what you would call a slacker blogger....I am not a real blogger, I am not a sponsored blogger, I am just a plain old regular blogger.....I guess I just don't get it and never will......

but to those of you that do stop by and read...thank you!!! it does mean a lot to me.....I may not be the best blogger out there, but....sometimes I say what people are thinking and just too afraid to say.....

Life without Internet.....

SUCKS BIG TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

let me tell you!!!! LOL It was down since Thursday, and man oh man did it stink....I thank god for my iphone!!! because it got me thru.....although cell service was iffy at times because they were working on the tower, but without being in contact is a terrible thing!!!

I think it really makes you realize just how much we do depend on this technology now....and just 10 years ago it was not that forums, message boards, networking sites...blogs....we have come a long way....and let me tell you going back to NOT having them is NOT where *I* want to be!!!

I missed going to my blogs and reading up on I need to go and catch up with all of you!!!!!!!!!! so off I go!!!

why is it that it is so easy to be so disrespectful these days? I mean if someone is being outright disrespectful in the media or where ever, they shrug it off as freedom of speech? Hell I get the freedom of speech thing...I mean that is why I can write this blog, because it is freedom of speech....but when did it become OK for people to be rude or obnoxious and if they are called on it they say "freedom of speech" Sure you are free to say what you want, but didn't your parents teach you how to have a little snippet of respect for other people? or did they just go about teaching their kids to just be rude and obnoxious because it is "freedom of speech" in this country?

It continually amazes me that some adults today still act like teenagers! Have no respect for history or heritage or anything of that nature, they are of the thought *I* deserve this and *I* deserve that....but yet are unwilling to work for it! but man when things do not go their way....they are the FIRST to bitch about it!! The sense of entitlement is amazing....where did the ethic go of work for what you want...

I know this is a "doesn't make much sense" blog, but I just had to get it out of my head! LOL then maybe now I will have more space to fill it with other things that make me go hmmm...

Thankful Thursdays....I think....

LOL my good friend over at A daily dose of Toni put this up and challenged us to try to come up with positives to go along with our here it goes my feeble attempt at that....

I am annoyed that my children choose to NOT listen to me....I am thankful that I have children that sometimes listen to me.....otherwise life would not be complete!!

I am annoyed that my dh just doesn't get me sometimes....I am thankful that I have a husband that works his butt off and provides for us.

I am annoyed with people that just don't get the term....grow a pair! yeah, I can't think of a positive to that...sorry....I guess I could't think of anything....

I am annoyed with people that are fake and totally clueless on how to be a true friend....I am thankful for the friendships that I do have!!! and that I can vent away to them and they still love me anyway!!!

I am annoyed with how much my kids are getting sick this year!!!!! I am thankful that it is just colds and mild flu and they are not seriously ill....

ok now go and do a post of you own.....and find what annoys you and find the counter to it!!!
believe me if *I* can do it anybody can!!!


whiny people.....oh how I despise whiny people!!! people who do nothing but bitch and moan about EVERYTHING but refuse to do anything about it!!! they let people walk all over them, and then say....I wish people would listen to me....well DUH stand up for yourself and tell them like it is, tell them NO once in awhile and they will not walk all over you!!!

this post was inspired by my friend Moo please check out her post!!! LOL she started it!!! ha ha ha but really she got me thinking about.....what irks me about some people...and I have to say it is whiny ass people that do not have the balls to stand up for themselves, but oh yes are the very first to complain about all the wrongs that have befallen them.....yes that is one of the biggies....

I learned at a very young age, that if you do not have the balls to stand up for yourself or your beliefs than 9 times out of 10 you will be walked all over, or not heard, or just taken advantage of. yeah it may make me cynical, hard or whatever you want to call it, but at least people know I won't take their BS without calling them on it!!! LOL yeah, I do have that can be a curse but then I find it to be quite liberating....for the pure fact that if people want an honest to God true answer, the usually ask me.....or like my sister says.....she often times thinks "what would Wendi do in this situation"....she is a little more pragmatic than me....ha ha...but hey....we are who we are I guess, and I should be accepting of those that cannot stand up for themselves, and I am is just the ones that choose not to say anything when they are more than capable of doing so....

Celebrity Crushes

Do you have one? I do....OBVIOUSLY!!! LOL I mean look at him!!! and he is such a great actor and a great human being!!! he does what he wants when he wants, and does not conform to "hollywood" in fact he despises it!! I have seen everyone of his movies, some a little more disturbing than others, but I love his wide range of acting ability from the weirdness of Willy Wonka to Sands in Once upon a time in Mexico....or who could forget Gilbert Grape...

He just is a fantastic actor that happens to just make me drool!! I have no delusions of "marrying" this man....duh he is way out of my league, and I am already married, but man one could wish now couldn't they!!!

I also have another one, this is a sports one!!! LOL his little picture is at the bottom of the screen!! yes Brett Favre....mmmmmmm I love him to death!! from the time he came into the league all the way thru the bs with green bay and his playing with the jets....I just love his LOVE of football!!! he goes out with the sheer exuberance of a "kid" when playing...and to me that is the way football should be played!! not for the millions of dollars in a contract, but for the love of the game!!! these days I can think of a few players that are there just for the money and really do not give a flying flip about the fans or truly the game...they just do their best to win, so they can say "show me the money"....but not Brett, yes he plays to play.....and I just have to say...I love him for that alone!!!

I was going to do an "enlightened" type blog...BUT....all hell broke out in my house just now about doughnuts!!!! yes...5 kids can fight about doughnuts!!! even the self proclaimed "adult" of the bunch still fights about doughnuts!!

I mean really.....does it effing matter who eats what doughnut? is it that bad if OMG your little sister eats the same damn one that you are eating?! Seriously!!?? So I guess my question to you out there you fight over petty stupid ass things? do you look back and think omg we fought over that!?!?!

I have, I will admit...although I do admit it was not as stupid as eating the same kind of doughnut! but....close....My sister and I shared a room....and we would fight about got so bad that at one point she put tape down the middle of the room, and said "this side is mine and this side is yours!!! you cannot put your clothes in the closet because it is on my side of the room!! and you cant this or that,.....yada yada yada..." she was awful!! LOL BUT my revenge on her was this.....SHE put the tape down the middle of the room.....and the door to get out of the room was on my side of the room!!!!! So being the little shit that I was....I told her she had to climb out the window to get out of the room!!! so of course, she called out for MOM...but Mom seeing what was going on said only this....."Well you started it by putting the tape down the middle of the room and stating that your sister was not allowed at all to step one foot on YOUR side of the room!! so, in turn....YOU have to give her the same courtesy!!!" LMAO boy did that tape come up off the floor rather quickly!!!

So I guess this didn't turn out to be too much of a meaningless blog post....but my question to you your lifetime have you ever argued over the most stupid asinine things? and later when you were older and wiser looked back and wanted to smack your "younger self" upside the head and say "what were you thinking!?!?"
