You Can Call Me Satan.

Yes. I'm Satan.
Satan Pictures, Images and Photos

At least I feel like Satan.

I woke up feeling completely and totally EVIL.

No, it's not that time.

I think it's a mixture of trying to run a household, raise to boys, work full time, and then figure out how I'm going to throw school into the mix.

Yup. I'm a bit worn out.

I feel awful when I feel like this.

I yelled at the boys this morning a bazillion times (hubby had to work EARLY so I had them all to myself).

Now I have Aladdin on for Cole so I can have some 'me' time on the computer.

I bit Carl's head of a few dozen times this morning before he left. Then cursed his name when I found out he did NOTHING last night while I was at work. The load of laundry I put in the wash, still there this morning.


He helps quite a bit around the house, but not when I need it the most. Know what I mean?

I'll be better tomorrow. This is how I am when there's no freaking sunshine in Ohio.

I need me some freaking sunshine.

Have a nice day.

Yes, I'm still Satan.

Look Ma'!

Look what I've taught myself how to make!

Photobucket Photobucket


Oh, yeah. Just call me Betty.

This was one of the easiest little desserts to make!

In the February issue of Woman's Day ( mom gave it to me...) they had a fantastic recipe on the front.

Petits fours:

Cut frozen pound cake into 1-inch cubes.

Spoon canned frosting into a bowl (stick with regular icing- not whipped), tint with gel food coloring as desired. Microwave frosting 10-15 seconds (I did 20) until it's the consistency of heavy cream.

(you may have to re-heat the icing several times throughout the icing process)

With a fork, dip each cube into frosting to coat. Let drip into bowl, tap fork to remove excess. (make sure the cube is coated all around)

With a dull knife, slide frosted cake onto foil lined baking sheet.

If using sprinkles, decorate immediately so they'll stick.

Using tube of decorating icing, pipe message on others.

I placed them in mini-cup cake paper holders. They stored great in the fridge.

They were definitely pretty tasty!!

Yup, that's me.

I'm a slacker.

We've had a bit of a stress the past couple weeks.

Here's a recap:

Feb 3rd- Carl has a dr appt. They've scheduled a MRI for Feb 9th. (explain later)

Feb 5th- Found out Carl may not have a job due to some stupid shit he did when he was 19 and 20 years of age.

Feb 6th- I had a dr appt, found out I wasn't dying of cancer. (I'm a bit dramatic, but there were questions!)

Feb 6th (also)- found out that they over looked my wiener husband's misdemeanors. Has a job! Yay!

Feb 9th- Carl's MRI. Don't get results yet.

Feb 11th- Get results. No aneurysms, blockage, or clots. (MRI on head and up chest). Yay! Not dying!

Feb 11th- Owen hit a little girl at school. No I'm NOT kidding. He took it upon himself to smack her in the face because she was talking in gym class. Oh, how the shit-ith hit-ith the fan-ith.

Feb 12th- Spawn of Satan...oops, Owen was aloud to partake in Valentines merriment. Had a good day, thanking his stars!

Feb 14th (VD!)- Got called into work 2 hours before scheduled time. Got my ass handed to me in a pretty basket, yes, with a nice red bow. We were on a wait from 3:30 until 9pm. (I work in a restaurant, if you haven't guessed yet) O-ray-of-sunshine management wasn't going to send the people who came in early for them, home early. (oh, the foul words ran like little jackolopes in my head)

Feb 16th- Went to a friends house for playtime. Had a great time. Went home realizing there is NOTHING to eat in my house. Glad to know that we've been out of milk for 2 days, and hubby didn't bother to right it down!! (there's those jackolopes again)


We've had our good with our bad these past couple days/weeks. Positive thinking people, positive thinking.

So, how was your VD? Everyone loves a good VD!
(snickering like a 12yr old little boy)

*edited to mention the fact that both boys were sick through the beginning of this fun stuff. Owen had Fifth's Disease, Cole had pink eye- then Fifth's disease. Good times!

Lil' Livingroom Parade

We had a little parade going on in our living room for Tuesday Whitt.

We enjoyed spending time and having fun in memory of Tuesday. I don't think my boys quite knew what was going on, but they had fun doing a parade with the toys!

They had to wear their hats of course, since it was a special occasion! (We were going to go for a walk, but colds and cold weather didn't permit)

Then we had a picnic! Our smiley-face taters were definitely tanned well! lol..

They definitely enjoyed their dinosaur chicky and smiley fries.

It felt good to know that others all around were praying and having their own special time for Tuesday.

I pray the Whitt family is graced with peace and loving family to get through this time.

Wagie Rides and Paper Hearts

On Saturday, February 7th at 11:00 a.m., the Whitt Family is holding a celebration in Parker, Colorado.

They're having a wagon and bike parade to honor Tuesday with one of her favorite things to do - "wagie rides."

We all can't be there physically, but we can be there in spirit.

See this little button..

Grab it. Post it. Spread it.And on Saturday, have a little wagon ride yourself.

No wagon - go for a bike ride.

Too much rain - jump in a puddle.

Too much snow - pull a sled.

Heck, throw the pooches in the back of a pickup and take a slow drive.

Whatever you do - as one person, as a couple, as a family, as a group of friends - take a picture and post it.

Then come back here or to Lee on Monday, February 9th, and add your link to Mr. Linky.The goal is to create a virtual parade for Tuesday, to show her family and friends how her brief life touched so many.

To offer support in their time of need. And to maybe bring a smile.

We hope we did not over step our bounds in this effort.

It is heartfelt, and it is pure. We both felt the need to do something, anything to help these hurting hearts.
We hope this does in one small way.

Now grab that button and spread the word!

Tamara over at Mad Boastings of a Cheapskate Mom is doing a wonderful thing for Tuesday also. Please go over and send some words of encouragement, love, peace, something heartfelt that she can send to the Whitt family in this time loss.
God bless that family. How my heart hurts for them.

So, What Do You Think About Pink?

The color, not the artist.

PINK Pictures, Images and Photos

I dyed my hair pink.

Not like this...

Here's some before...(now I just got off work, so don't mind the goofyness)



And the after...(now, don't mind the none-makeup...yeah, I'm a slacker)




I've always wanted to do something fun like this, so I did it!

My hubby HATES it with a passion! It's been 3 days and he's still not talking to me.

Seriously. He's picking a fight over hair dye.

He'll get over it, he'll have to!

I'll get it toned down in a couple weeks and then slowly fade it out.

Whatever! I love it!
