I forgot

Sunday, April 29, 2012


Well I did!...I got to SparkStalking and now I can't bloomin' remember. I think it was about my weekend, which was just a blur of movies. I rarely watch t.v. I'm so glad Bobby has this new shift. I'm so tired.
Well, that's about the entire vlog.
Have a great night and remember your bloomin' water. You're only as successful as your water intake. No joke. Look I ain't lying. I just scorfed a bag of chips because my belly was lying and saying, "Ugh you're starving me...feed me biznotch!" When I distinctly remember shoving down that last bite of burger at supper.
I was thirsty....I only had 5 cups of water today (4 cups of coffee) That was not good. No, no it was not...
NOw, I gotta go flash the neighbours and tomorrow wave to the cops. My life is sooo boring. Um, not.

    I'm very happy that Bobby is going to work 60 vs 80, but still a lot of work, dang.
Thats the tub you're bathing in? I was thinking that metal wash tub that Sebastian got stuck in last year, lol :D Glad the plumber will be coming though, although you fit in the tub, not the best place unless you're trying to make better friends with the neighbours :D
I LOVE GLEE :D Just sayin'
LOVE YOU

    This is something I don't usually talk about, but for two weeks I bathed in rainwater from a garbage can outside. We did take the time to put up a few rain ponchos for "privacy" but I'm telling you, that was great compared to NOT bathing.

Sorry about the bathroom. Oh, and I think yellow would be MUCH better. No way that looks "den".

    You're right.. Some People should not play with the camera, liz! :) (just referring to the beginning part.. taking us up super close and so on..) but no, then you cut to the laundry room. Are you KIDDING ME? You can bathe in that little tiny sink? and EWW! Please get the plumber there soon! How on Earth do you shower in that short tub/shower - I mean the regular one? And more, how does Bobby or Gigantor fit? That's crazy, girl!!

60 hr shift for B, but he is gone overnight til noon the next day? WTF kind of shift is that?

Totally know what you mean about not wanting to do yard work when you're dressed nicely. Lately I've had to think about what I'm putting on in the morning because If I put on a dress, i don't want to take a walk with the dog or do my hooping.

Glee - I don't think they're put that Glee of Madonna with Brittney on Hulu yet. I don't see them til they get posted on Hulu or Huluplus (free tv on internet). The last one I saw was the one where Kurt and Blaine had a fight because Kurt was flirty texting a lot with a guy he met downtown and Blaine felt cheated on. So related to that, there's a guy in my SparkLive class who ALWAYS flirts with me during class and in the last two weeks we've started texting back and forth - mostly support and encouragement about exercise and weight loss..He didn't have a girlfriend, but TONIGHT he brought a girl.. I mean he had a lady friend in his room with him when we were in the SparkLive class. He showed her on camera, too. We had texted right before class and he didn't tell me he was on a date! But he wasn't himself during class at all. He hardly talked during class and didn't flirt at all! So that was weird.. Anyhoo.. No biggie, it's all innocent and I am married anyway.. LOL, it just made me think of the show. Re. Brittney - she seems innocent because she's so stupid, like if she's naughty it's like little girl naughty stuff.. but maybe not.. she's been taught by her dirty girlfriend whose name escapes me right now.

Drink more.. WATER girl.. You're not bathing in enough .. so at least give the inside of your body more. :) So how are the rest of your family getting clean without a bath?

    I love old shows too. I love I love Lucy the most & Sanford and Son... I don't watch as much T.V. now; because nothing is on half the time that I want to watch. I love The Voice it's a new singing show like idol, but cooler than idol... that Cee-Lo Green cracks me up... I love the old school movies, and I love the blues brothers. James Bond has always been the ish to me... I also love "chips" and the fashions from the 70's-80's is my thing. Fashion kinda did a flip-flop there. My mom saw leggings in a store a pair of GOLD ONES.. And she was like. Who is doing the PEG BUNDY in these? A girl comes walking pass us in them, and my mom goes. Oh! There she is. Did you just try them on? I'm looking at these GOLD leggings and I started to think to myself. Okay! Whoever buy those leggings better send them through a hot wash. They are just like underwear... NO HAHA PROTECTION.... None whatsoever, and I love leggings for workout clothes only, and those black ones to wear under a dress that is a little to short. Yeah! Keeping the hubby off my case about showing off my junk... Any-whoo.... I hope you get your plumbing fixed ASAP. I would flip if my shower was all jacked up. My husband said. I'm such a cry baby. I'm not. I just like things to be Purrrfect... You know. Just Purrrfect. You should have seen my face yesterday. I love talking to ya... I took a nice look around my workout/living room and dinning, and I was like... Ooooo... I don't like the way this look. I saw my husband weed eater sitting in the middle of my floor, and I was like. We must get this man a storage close to home soon. We have a robber in our hood.. And he's robbing people of their garden tools.. And he took this man riding motor and took some mans push motor, and he is selling these things for "crack". OMG! What's going on with todays world? I love your blogs and you have a wonderful MONDAY...

Plumbing Purgatory

Friday, April 27, 2012

Not the internal plumbing kind. Praise the Lord!
No. It's been a week and half that our bathtub takes an hour or four pending on the tide to drain as well as its sink.
Joy o' freakin' bliss.
Praise God for SparkPeople and I've lost almost 70 lbs and can fit (squish?) into the laundry tub. Ya, my legs are shaven as well as my pits and I'm keepin' up on my *D*I*V*A*. Oh ya. I feel human.
So, I had vid but for some stooopido reason Sparkdom refuses to accept my uploads. I have no nudie pics, I swear! I was just showing footage of a really fugly bathroom and the Squishy Tub.
Anyway.
All is well and that's what's up.
Gotta go pick up the kids and wave to police. Then spend the weekend pretending to be "Heidi" to "Tim the Toolman Taylor"
Go me.

You need to wear a sparkly evening gown, stilettos and a feather boa to the 8th grade dance. Oh, and you need to have an entourage that calls an EXTREME amount of attention to you. Plus a big sign that says, "I'm Dutchess' Mom." Muwahahahaha
Do NOT pick a fight with a dude who has a noose around his neck.
That little girl probably likes David.
Oh my gosh, if you freshen up for us, we have to freshen up for you. I prefer the "fly by the seat of my pants" look.
TWY doesn't have to be good at hide and seek, because she can kick butt when she's found, so it doesn't matter.

Hello, Bobby. I didn't know you read the comments below. I feel like I should try to be more coherent when I comment now. I can't make any promises. I hope you're having a good day at Job #45 or whichever one you're on right now. The yogurt parfaits at McDonald's are really good, as long as they don't forget to include the granola. Have you tried hula hooping yet? I'm thinking that would make an epic vlog. Maybe when it warms up for real up there, you can have a Snow Family hoop jam. Well, I hope you have a smooth day/night/? at work. Later dude.

Hiding in the Man Cave...

Friday, April 20, 2012

Which happens to be the garage/dump pile.

Let's begin at the beginning?

The morning was off to a lethargic start as I knew it would be with it being the tail end of the most momentous week of my kids and my life. We've placed the three middle children in public school. We have survived the Migraine Mayhem but the attacks have left my brain bruised and my resolve weak. I'm simply not strong enough to manage 4 grades, a preschooler and a home. The past few weeks it has been a roller coaster of emotions and adjustments and you guys have been a wonderful support. I am so happy to have you.

I'm very insecure in in person contact. I'm hearing impaired and I rely heavily on body language for my communication signals and I have a tendency to use that as my main form as communication as well.



This probably explains why I am so particularly attached to dance. If you didn't know me you'd label me as "Shy". I'm careful with smiles, laughs, and eye contact. In public, I feel as though my insides are a panicking mess begging to be a wallflower. I love watching people. I do not have to be the center of attention. I appreciate it, but, I love watching others be the best they can be. I love being the cheerleader, I do not have to be the quarterback. Know what I'm saying? Sure, I like having some shining moments, but, I get as much joy out of my friends (if not more, because I don't have performance pressure) reaching their goals and shining.

My heart sinks when I walk in a room or when I walk onto the playground now to drop off my kids. I dress for me and my security (my security blanket...if people don't like what they see, I can blame it on Max Factor). My peers leer or geer. I may have found a fellow cheerleader. Tank's 'great with child' 3rd Grade teacher that is leaving next week. She will always return smiles and greetings, I suspect she is like I was when I was expecting and seeing women that had many children that looked like they could keep it together gave me hope, "I can do this and not fall a part like I fear." She is very sweet, much unlike Jojo's teacher that enjoys turning her back to me when I am near. I just quietly accept her rejection...their rejection...their whispers, sneers, rolling their eyes at my skinny jeans, my bubble-gum pink coat, my french manicured nails...at my *D*I*V*A*.

I could de-*D*I*V*A*, but, I like me and I want friends that do too. Maybe it's part of the *D*I*V*A* but, I'm not going to settle for mediocrity. I want friends like you. That will love me through; thick, thin, high, low, weak, strong, dumpy and *D*I*V*A*. Ones that are faithful, supportive, caring, respectful, thoughtful, and FUN!! There is a peer pressure to change or dim my *D*I*V*A* with my in person peers.

REALLY?! Where is the fun of going for a walk and having to wear runners ALL THE TIME? Sheesh. Mom #1 and Mom#2 leave the school yard ahead of me after dropping off the kids. Just before they had been leaning against the fence taking turns tossing invisible darts at me because the Single Daddy eye candy was distracted by some tall blond this week. The tall blond has him on ignore which is apparently code for, "Nice to meet you", in Idiot Language. It ticked Mom#1 and #2 off anyway. When I was following (as it was time to exit the school yard, I limit my stalking to Spark) they tossed sneers over their shoulders and giggled at my heeled boots.

It just reminded me of a line the movie MEGAMIND, "Come on now. Girls, girls we're all pretty." Sheesh. There is more than one flower to a garden. Let's make this place beautiful!!
No?
Okay then. I'm not playing with you. Your attitude stinks. Oh, and your sneakers. One word.

FUGLY.

Okay two.

BORING.

I'd like to tear you apart because it took two of you to make the rejection sting and that my presence makes you insecure enough to belittle me shows me that you have insecurity that I can manipulate and harm you with.

But, I won't retaliate and will no longer hold onto your poisonous hate.

I'll be quiet and teach my kids that bullying hurts.

Proudly wearing my bubblegum PINK jacket.

After I'm done hiding out in the Man Cave with my PINK ipod that my SparkFriend gave me and dancing my *D*I*V*A* moves that would make you DIE of jealousy.

SO there.

(PINK is the anti-bullying colour that our school is asking children to wear next week to show support for an anti-bullying environment...Feb 29th is the day, but, it's going on again here. Surprise.)

    YOu know, their judgment of you is just because they are ashamed of themselves and don't know how to get healthy and hot. They also probably don't know that you used to be much heavier and have worked so hard to become so sexy and hot. I wonder how you might educate them so they might be able to get sexy and/or at least not have the same judgmental attitude. Do you have any SparkPeople tshirts or bags or bracelets?

    You just keep teaching me things! I think I'm one of the sneaker moms, reserved and insecure around women who have a lot more fashion and spunk than I do. I'm sure it comes across as judgmental and rude even though the truth is that there's often a lot of admiration and the real judgment is against myself.
I do hope you will find some true friends amongst all the other school moms.

    Friday Night I picked the kids up after school and it felt like I again was walking the halls of high school. That walk always felt like death row or a fashion runway. It essentially boils down to Survival of the Best Actress. If I can act like that sabotaged project, shot to the head, that rumour spread, or the shove down the stairs that some embittered peer is planning for me is, "Sooooooo, like, yesterday!". I'm gold. Maybe others have never had that luxury. Maybe they grew up in Candyland and abuse is as foreign as broccoli. However, I grew up in the school of Hard Knocks, um, literally. I watch for preemtive strike. I don't consider it a sign of immaturity. I consider it sad sign of the state of humanity.

The lesson I've been working on right now is Phil. 4:8. Seriously. Focus on what is good, pure, and noble and the rest fades. It's not easy, but it is what we are called to do. When you see them, remember Saul who had the scales fall off his eyes allowing him to see. Who knows, maybe their scales can fall off too....
Vent, ramble, whatever you need. We see you, we hear you, and we LOVE the DIVA!

    OMGoodness. how many of us gained weight or altered ourselves to fit in. Dimming our glorious light to quiet the whispers and wicked words because we loved ourselves.

I have been there. I used to be extremely outgoing, overly affectionate, smiling and joking with everyone. I love human contact and would touch shoulders, kiss cheeks and hug the world. The result was everyone misunderstood. I treated guys like they were girlfriends. The male friends, thought I was coming on to them. That resulted in unwanted advances and me being compromised.

The female friends thought I wanted to steel their men. Whoa, I was a natural faced tomboy. All I wanted was to play handball, paddleball, run and climb. I soon learned that did not work for my girlfriends, most now my ex-friends who talked about me and unfriended me. It did not help that their trifling men were hitting on me and I was loving enough to not share that and stay far away from them. Heck, I did my nails two or three times a year and did not start wearing make-up until I was in my 40's. I attributed all of the negative attention to my tiny 100 lb, shapely person. I dimmed my light so much, I could not find it.

I gained weight to get rid of their attention and put my personality on mute. I tried hard to stay in the background. Even that did not help. Now I appealed to a different set of pervs.

Liz, you can not please everyone and you should have or want to. Please God, you and Bobby. Everyone else who has issues can KICK ROCKS!!

    Oh sister, sister, sister......if you only knew how similar we are. I'm telling you, if you lived here, we could change the world! Power in numbers, you know!

Don't let yourself change. When I moved here from Cali, all bubby and happy and chatty (and glam in comparison) I couldn't make a friend to save my life. We'd visit a church and I'd try to bubble up to the ladies and you could literally SEE them closing their minds and taking a big step back mentally. I'm like..."WHAT?? Is my breath? What the problem is here ladies?" I truly didn't think I was a threat to anyone. My gosh, I'm an old married woman, I don't want their redneck men! There is just NO WAY to connect with women that insecure unless you 'reduce' your appearance and personality and intelligence to a step below their's. LIFE IS TOO SHORT FOR THAT!!

(I did learn after a few years that cheating on spouses is a very common sport and in a small community, everyone knows everyones business, so everyone is seen as a possible threat, regardless of their intent, so imagine the threat that is an attractive vivacious woman! It hurts badly, I know, but it's their problem.
OMG, did I ever tell you about the time, shortly after we moved here, hubs was in Florida visiting his family and one of our massive trees fell across the driveway, I was blocked in and couldn't even pull out around it. I called the local tree guy who came out and at least cut a section out of it right away so I could get out the drive.....and I could NOT get rid of the man for hours as he told me his wife problems *and how tree's affect ones marriage(?). A few months later, as we gave him business when our trees were falling like dominoes, he and hubby established a bit more of a connection (not a friend connection, but business) He tried to convince my husband to join a local club/fraternity type of thing, with the SALES pitch point of; one of their rules being members do not screw around with each others wives!!! ROFL Like that was a problem?? LIKE....otherwise any man who knocked on my door I would have no ability to resist? We both HOWLED about that, rolf, for months. Gee, if a husband has to join all the local clubs to keep his wife from screwing around......there maybe other problems there, ya think? I just couldn't get over the fact any local man would think they HAD a shot with me!! LOLOLOL

As I got involved with helping animals (since the people were assholes) women at the local shelter would assess my stress levels by saying, "Well, I noticed you are still doing your hair and makeup, so you must be doing ok with the stress of the shelter issues...." Ummm...huh? Afterawhile of this constant rejection or misunderstanding of who I was, I did start to let myself go, pile on weight, dress down, etc. (not because I wanted to connect with them, just depression I guess) BUT GUESS WHAT, being more like them or looking more like them did not open any gates or friendships!! It just left me a shallow shadow of who I really was. So all things being equal, screw 'em.

I can still sense that "who the helll does she think she is" vibe, just as you did, but you get used to it. I'm getting my bubbly back. I chat and connect with the people who preety much have to tolerate me, cashiers, etc. and just give them my charming side, some people respond. Some people don't. Eh. Some people have wanted to chat because clearly they want the scoop on 'who the helll I think I am'. A few people have gotten to know me well enough to know I have the most awesome husband I'm in love with, they don't need to feel threatened....but now I'm not much interested in them anyway. We chat occassionally online or in email but even though they live around the corner, we don't hang out.

REMEMBER that T.R.O.U.B.L.E. Song....what country singer was that...Travis Tritt?
"The men are gonna love you
But the women gonna hate you
Reminding them of everything their never gonna be
It's bound to be beginnin' of World War 3
Cuz the world's never seen nuthin' like
Y.O.U...."
Or something like that.

IT doesn't take the sting out of having few or now real life girlfriends, but we have each other!!! I'm tellin you, if we couuld all move to the same place, life would be freaking AWESOME!! :)

Hang in there girl. Kill 'em with Kindness! And if that doesn't work, just kill'em...haha

Love you

    You ARE a threat to those women, what can I say,...at least THEY think so. And that is something THEY have to deal with. In my opinion, a woman that feels threatened by another woman is already dealing with insecurities. That is NOT your burden!

OWN it...OWN the beauty you have worked so hard to attain. Of course, I'm talking VISUAL beauty. That's what makes this so difficult. Other women initially feel threatened because of visual beauty. They do not see your INNER BEAUTY...they do not know you as a person...they do not know that you are married, and quite happily, I might add,...they do not know your personality and that you have no intentions of threat.

I say be yourself, be confident and by all means SMILE (and make them wonder what you are up to).

    Just remember, like Spock pointed out once, it's possible to misperceive things. Sometimes. Maybe everybody out there isn't judging you, maybe a few are. Their loss, not yours. Be the incredible you that you are.

PS: I wear sneaks every day. I collect them. We'd still hang out, right?? Cause if I tried walking around in heels, I'd fall over and you'd just have to carry me.
