Long one today...

For some reason, it seems like the days I do the least in terms of productive tasks are the days that I have the most to blog about. I don't know if I'll ever figure out how that happens, but hey, we'll roll with it.

First of all, I'm LOVING that so many of you have decided to jump on the Project 365 bandwagon! It's soooo cool looking at everyone's photos everyday! I get excited to see everyone's new entry the next day. I've posted my second day's photo over on my Project 365 blog, and I've linked all of your project blogs in the sidebar too if any of the rest of you want to go browse. :) Today, I took a photo of exactly what $205.05 gets me at the grocery store. It kind of looks like a lot, but it's really not. In the photo, there are only 2 packs of meat (one pack of chicken breasts and one pack of T-bone steaks), so that's only two meals. Then there's veggies, some fruit, and some snack type stuff. And like 8 billion things to drink... milk, chocolate milk, juices, and smoothies. All of that will last us about 5 or 6 days. It's not unusual for us to spend up to $400 a week on groceries. It's because we buy 90-95% organic and all-natural food. Holy inflated grocery bill, Batman! Anyway, it's on my project blog, but I'll post it here too.

$205.05 Later...

I think I may be going to hell. Not that it was really in question before, but today really sealed the deal. So there are some Jehovah's Witnesses that swing by once a month or so. They're a lovely couple and they really aren't pushy at all. They stop, they chat, they ask about the kids, they hand me literature, and they leave. But sometimes, I just don't feel like talking to them. Not because they're Jehovah's Witnesses. Just because I don't feel like talking to anyone sometimes. So anyway, I happen to glance outside and see them pulling into our driveway this afternoon. It was one of those days I just wanted to be left alone and not smile politely and nod my head. So I ran upstairs before they got out of the car. The thing is, my car was in the driveway, all of the inside lights were on, and I had a Buck Cherry CD BLARING, and had no time to turn any of that stuff off. Um, oops. I have no doubt they could hear the music outside. And as luck would have it (my luck anyway), they happened to be knocking when song #7 was playing. Song #7 is "Crazy Bitch." The uncensored version. For those of you who don't know the lyrics, they go a little something like this...

Hey, you're a crazy bitch but you f*ck so good I'm on top of it...

When I dream of doing you all night, scratches all down my back to keep me right on.

And they continue along that same theme. Oh my. [sigh] Yup. They left when I didn't answer the door and I'm pretty sure they won't be back again. Either that or they will be back to try to save my soul. I'm sorry Jehovah's Witnesses. I didn't mean to subject you to my devil music today. Please forgive me.

Dear Steve,

I'm so glad you love our children and enjoy having fun with them. But for the love of all things holy, can you PLEASE stop playing "bullfighter/bucking bronco" with them in the living room 5 minutes before bedtime, resulting in two very hyperactive children who have no intention of settling down anytime soon. And if you don't stop doing such things, I'm going to kick you in places daddies don't like to be kicked in.

Love,

Me

PS: If you ever forget it's garbage day again before you leave for work, leaving me to drag 4 big ass garbage cans down our fairly long and currently icy driveway in 20-degree weather with whipping winds, I'm also going to kick your ass.

My kids' new favorite TV show is "Full House" which comes on Nickelodeon at 8:30. I laugh every time they watch it because I remember watching it when I was a kid and loving it. And when Hannah was little, several people told me she looked like the Olson twins when they were babies on Full House. And the truth is, she really did. LOL! I'll have to post some side-by-side photos tomorrow if I can dig some up. I'm not sure if I hope she grows up and looks like them, or dread it. They're hot, so maybe she could become famous and fund us in our old age. But if she's that hot, she might become a little hussy or something. LOL!

OK. I think that's it for now. I'll be back tomorrow. :) Don't forget! There's still time to join in Project 365! Hell, it's only day 2. Cheat and take 2 photos today and go from there. We won't tell. LOL!

It's been so long since I saw "Full House" I almost asked if that was the show with Urkle in it. LOL.

Oh, I wouldn't feel too bad about the JW's. They should have left you alone by now, anyway. Have you ever really gotten into what they believe? Oy. lol! And I can't TELL you how many cases I had when I was in social work, that involved JW's! Holy crap, I am not even kidding. So I think that is funny shit. *snort!*

Happy New Year!
