QUOTE OF THE DAY
"A tree does not move unless there is wind." ~ Proverb

~~ Slept in a little later than usual since Grace wasn't here.

~~ Became immensely annoyed when Steve got out of the shower and flicked on the overhead light in the bedroom (I was still sleeping), blinding me and waking me up. Fucker.

~~ Watched Steve and the neighbor actually finish the kitchen floor. The tile has been grouted. We are ready for cabinets, my friends.

~~ Was annoyed beyond all belief when my mother-in-law called me right as I was about to eat lunch and said that Grace was up practically all night, and that she had planned to bring her home, but could I please come get her as soon as possible, since her friend was on her way down and her friend smokes in the house and she didn't want Grace around that. Um, excuse me? YOU can't take the 10 minutes (literally) to drive her the 3 miles to our house? Instead, you'll make me leave my nice hot pizza? I wouldn't even have cared if she had given me some freakin' notice. AND, if she really had been up almost all night, I really would've preferred to get her right in the morning so I could try to get her to nap. [grumble... grumble...]

~~ Drove to pick her up dreading the day that I knew would transpire with an exhausted, non-napping 4-year-old.

~~ Became slightly annoyed when Hannah peed in her pants THREE times in one hour simply because she didn't want to stop playing. (Yeah. Yeah. I know that's normal, and NO, I did not act annoyed to her. But I was dammit.)

~~ Cringed as Hannah made me watch that damn "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" again. I can only take so much of that Oompa Loompa song before I feel the need to shove blunt objects into my ears.

~~ Played video games with Grace again. (I think we're both a tad bit addicted.)

~~ Watched Grace have meltdown and meltdown, hour after hour, due to her overtired state. I swear she is not sleeping at my MILs again for awhile. (She does this every flippin' time, but I hate saying no.)

~~ Felt like I was living through the apocalypse when CRAZY hard winds started whipping up out of no where. I'm talking damaging winds that would've easily knocked Hannah to the ground.

~~ Calmed Grace for HOURS because the lights kept dimming (due to the wind) and Grace kept panicking that we were going to lose power.

~~ Almost cried when the cable went out.

~~ Celebrated when the cable came back on 2 or 3 hours later.

~~ Laughed at our lives as Steve kept running outside in crazy ass winds that was blowing the snow literally sideways in the sky so he could grill the chicken we were eating for supper. God damn we're ready for our kitchen.

~~ Got to watch Trading Spaces. It's been quite awhile since I've sat down and watched it.

~~ Decided (again) that Doug Wilson really is freakin' HOT.

~~ Didn't know whether to laugh or cry when five minutes after putting Hannah in her crib for the night and leaving the room, she called me in to tell me she had to go potty. For the love of god child, you peed in your pants THREE TIMES today and didn't care. And now it's bedtime, I just told you you could just pee in your diaper, and you're going to insist I carry you all the way back downstairs to sit on the potty and probably squeeze out two drops. [grumble... grumble...]

~~ Had another slight panic attack about my employment situation (or lack thereof). And yet, I refuse to get another job outside the home. See the conundrum here?

OMG, your kitchen....is....so....close! I'm so excited FOR YOU!!!!

Oh and welcome to my world for the past like 4months, we've had winds exactly like that sometimes as much as 4x/wk. SUCKS! Hope your's goes away really soon.

Janet said...

LOL, EE I was thinking the same thing! We have had such an incredibly windy winter!

I haven't watched Trading Spaces in a long time either. I miss that show!

Alien said...

It's NUTS! I can honestly say, I have NEVER witnessed winds this strong in my life. The trees next to our house are practically bending over completely in half. Freakin' CRAZY!!!!

EE said...

It *sucks*. I'm so over it. Somedays it's been 50-90mph. ICK.

geenalyn said...

sounds like we are having similar weather today Alien...what made ours extra special was it was -20 C with the wind chill...gotta love canada

Alien said...

Ya wanna know how windy it is? I have to go out in the driveway and sit IN my car to smoke a cigarette b/c it's too windy to just stand outside and hold one. Can we say COMPLETE DORK to anyone that happens to see me out there? LMFAO!

mama_tulip said...

LOL at you smoking in your car. But a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

Alien said...

I know Katherine. But I'd really like one RIGHT NOW before heading to bed, but it's just so damn cold and windy out there. So now I'm having an internal battle with myself. Do I get my ass out there and smoke the damn cigarette and go to bed? Or do I say screw it, go to bed, and then lie then craving one? Decisions... decisions...

EE said...

I'm not very good at will power. I'd be out smoking the cigarette. Course we all know about my sleep issues....bc otherwise I'd just be laying there annoyed that I couldn't sleep bc I was thinking about the cig that I really wanted.

LOL

Alien said...

Yeah, but see, if I go out for the cigarette, I'll grab another beer from outside the door (cuz we're classy like that). And I REALLY don't want to drink another beer because I'm butt ass tired and NEED to go to bed. I really am thinking about this WAY too much, aren't I?

EE said...

Uh yes, you are. If you go out for a smoke, you feel you will NEED another beer. But if you drink ANOTHER beer, won't you WANT another smoke?!??? LOL

Alien said...

If I'm not back in 10 minutes, assume that I somehow locked myself out of the house and no one else is awake to let me in (which is true). In which case, one of you needs to call my house and wake Steve up so I can come back in and not freeze to death or blow away, OK?

mama_tulip said...

LOL dude. Go sit in your car and smoke.

Talk about peer pressure.

Janet said...

We have had the wind but, at least it is 65 degrees when it is windy! There is nothing worse than a cold wind.

Don't go smoke!

EE said...

LMAO, Janet is the only nice one here. Katherine and I are all telling her to go smoke her cancer stick.

Melissa said...

I used to like Doug, but after seeing him on that other show of his, I think he's kind of creepy. LOL

EE said...

Oh and wouldn't the obvious thing be to maybe, I dunno, bring her keys outside w/ her?! LOL

Alien said...

Melissa, I LOVE him in his other show. Just back off. (And I thought you meant EE's husband at first. LOL!)

And EE, come to think of it, my keys are always IN my car in the ignition so I guess that whole paranoia is pointless, huh? (And only dorky non-smokers call them "cancer sticks". That's so lame.)

And Janet, you're no fun. LOL!

Alien said...

OK, I'm REALLY going out now. For real. And I guess I should bring my keys back in with me since now anyone that reads this blog could come here and know to find my house and car keys IN my car in my driveway. [sigh] LOL!

Right NOW I'm going. Watch the clock...

mama_tulip said...

Betcha any money she's out in her car...she hasn't posted in a few minutes.

EE said...

*sigh* now I've become a "dorky non smoker". I was really striving for the "cool non smoker" appeal. Dang it!

LMAO, I had to re read Melissa's post too, lol. The OTHER Doug.

Melissa said...

No, Doug (not EE's husband) acts like a total perv on that show! I get embarassed for him and have to turn it.

Janet said...

I can't believe you will go out in the freezing cold and sit in the dark, alone in your car, for one of those 'cancer sticks.' Stay inside, have a cup of hot cocoa and call it good:-)

Melissa said...

Yeah, Alien, stop the smoking, already. You tell her, Janet.

EE said...

I got yelled at last time I told one of my friend's to stop. LOL, I don't do that anymore. ;)

Alien said...

I'm back. :) (Without a beer. Must...go...to...bed...)

Alien said...

I won't stop smoking and y'all can't make me. So pbbllttt!

And Melissa, I LOVE Doug's Perv Appeal. :)

mama_tulip said...

LOL Melissa, he is such a perv on TV! Dave and I were watching "Moving Up" and one of the couples' kitchen heavily rooster-themed. They're all standing in the kitchen and Doug goes, "It's obvious the lady of the house likes cocks." Dave and I were like OMG, LOL.

Melissa said...

Ewwwwww! That is too creepy! Lance would totally punch him out if he said something like that in our house. LOL

Alien said...

Lance is no fun. LOL!

Seriously, that is so something that I would say. I think that's why I like him. LOL!

Melissa said...

See, but it would be funny if you said it. It's just creepy coming from him.

Janet said...

That comment is a little over the edge.

Janet said...

What is creepy about it is to say it on tv. It is totally different if you are in the company of good friends and having fun. KWIM?

Alien said...

No Janet, I don't know what you mean. PIMP! I thought it was hysterical! (And actually, I think the exact quote was something like, "Someone here sure does like their cocks." I don't think he necessarily said, "The lady of the house..." LMAO!)

Melissa said...

Doug likes cocks...not that there's anything wrong with that.

Melissa said...

Exactly, Janet! And, sometimes, the homeowners look at him like THEY are a little uncomfortable and it just makes me feel icky. LOL

Janet said...

I really think it is a funny comment. But, only if I were hanging out with people I knew. Not some dude that had just come to my house.

Melissa said...

Was that cock comment of mine a little too much?

Alien said...

LOL Janet! I know what you're saying. But it's not just "some dude". It's DOUG WILSON! Mmmmmm.... He can come comment on my cocks anytime he wants to. PIMP!

Janet said...

Okay, I agree! He is a cutie and if he wants to come in my house and make funny comments, he can. BUT, if he was some ugly dude who I didn't know, it would be totally unacceptable! LOL

Janet said...

Melissa- yur cock comments are hilarious:-)

Renfield said...

I will never, ever understand your fascination with Doug Wilson. Ever. He is such a slimeball - he always seems so insincere and condescending (or is that what the appeal is for you?). I still with my stoner rock stars - LOL!

PS tell me how you avoid spam AND don't have a word verification thingie. Please =)

EE said...

She's just lucky. LOL I hate my word verification thing, but w/o it I was the spam capital. *sigh* So I live w/ it.

Janet said...

ee, your word verification is entertaining! You never know what is going to come up on it.

Alien said...

LOL Ren. See, maybe it's because 99.9999% of the time, I AGREE with Doug's comment, so I don't find him insincere and condescending. LOL!

And as for SPAM, I get it. I just, um, delete it. LOL! I HATE word verification, so I just click on the little garbage can under a SPAM post (which takes all of like 3 seconds) and send it off into cyber world, never to be seen again... LOL!
