all in on the whole teen years thing

C did in fact become an actual teenager this summer, let's just say the entire "teen angst thing" is part amusing and part annoying as hell. We'll go with amusing on this next story, kiddo had been allowed to indulge in the video gaming nonsense for a good part of the summer to the extent that some days we see him at feeding time only. Saturday evening around 10ish, 10ish p.m.that is I hollered a 30 minute warning to him, I was asked when dinner would be ready?  When I got home around 7:30 after a very busy day of working David had a full meal prepared, ready and waiting for me. The kid was genuinely pissed off that no one had thought to let him know dinner was ready. I asked him if he had been hungry or had considered asking someone or even venturing into the kitchen himself to investigate the food situation, nope not the point apparently.....

the passive agressive snark

now that everyone is on social media I have to be more on the passing out of particularly specific snark, but wait there's the blog no one reads that anymore! soooooo on we go
My mother taught me how to throw a party, ok she taught me more than that but I can throw together a damn fine get together. I should reserve judgement of this afternoon but where's the fun in that.

let's work on our notification skills

C's math teacher planned a delayed pi day celebration, a two day celebration in fact for after the dreaded TCAPS, because once those are over the teachers need to fill several weeks with something, but that is another post for another day, ok great fine please send in a snack or in lieu of a dollar donation was fine. I had a dollar and the permission slip ready to go Monday morning for C and he piped up with could I drive him to school because he could also bring in a round snack today too. This would be after all weekend, all weekend that I worked, Daddy was off and in fact went grocery shopping, C was out with Daddy on Sunday and even was at the dollar store with cash in hand but not once did a round snack cross his mind, Heck even a late night text on Friday, Saturday or Sunday could have promoted a quick stop at a gas station for a round snack on my way home. But no no C is gonna wait till 7:00am to as me for a round snack I offered a box of square triscuits that he could bite into round shapes beyond that he would have to suffer snackless

is this thing still on?

well whadda ya know there is still a blog here.....

you my dear are "cray cray"

there was some discussion this past weekend over a shared distaste of the phrase "cray cray" but you know it just totally fits some people and some situations to a T.

HAPPY 2013!

I continue to not do resolutions and even if I did why share them with the world?! I am so awful with follow through I suspect any resolutions would already be broken by like 12.42 am on the 1st...no for reals I am just that awful.
Now that being said I have totally fallen off the exercise wagon over the past few months so I have checked out class times at the Y and plan on jumping back on that particular bandwagon this Friday! and I am telling everyone so everyone should please give me hell on Friday afternoon if I have not gotten my behind to the class

curent day anachronisms

Connor was faced with his first busy signal this weekend when trying to call his grandmother on her home phone...he kept trying to tell me that  Meemaw's phone had been disconnected, much like bar soap & hand crank windows it had the boy confounded

it is all about the side dishes

honestly I like turkey, ham or whatever sort of meat/protein product is served at a holiday meal but my favorite part of any large meal is the side dishes. This year I panned on contributing 2 sides and a dessert but I keep adding side dishes that I really want....corn bread thingy, roasted cauliflower, creamed spinach, glazed carrots....oh my too many ideas swirling about and not enough time. And I have not even started considering dessert recipes yet

-sending out cards this year come hell or high water! I love getting Christmas cards and it's a wonder we get any I am so lame about sending them out
-kinda sorta feel the need for a tacky holiday sweater this year
-holiday sweater vests are truly awful
