Ten On Tuesday

As much as I love having an extra day off, I hate it all the same because now I'm all thrown off. I'm sitting at my desk trying to find the motivation to work & it's not happening. Not one bit. I think we need to start having entire weeks off of work instead of a day.

I'm gonna dive right in to these 10 on Tuesday...
  1. Gonna be totally honest...it sort of weirds me out when I see parents kiss their children on the lips. I know it may be totally harmless but it still gives me the heeby jeebies.

  2. How is it that I just got paid on Friday & I have absolutely no money? I didn't go shopping or anything. I put gas in my car & bought Dexter the Tortoise some salad...how did that break the bank?

  3. It's hot. Way too hot for January. I should be wearing big warm sweaters around the house not shorts & a tank top and having to turn the air conditioning on. This is nuts. I hear there were cities on the East Coast drowning in snow...where's our cold weather!

  4. I may or may not have promised my two god-kids a trip to Legoland in late February/early March without having checked out our budget. Oops.

  5. Laundry...oh how I hate you. I managed to finish all but 2 loads of laundry this weekend. Normally I'd call this a success but I know that by the end of the week the damn cycle will begin all over again.

  6. The MIL is coming over to cook us dinner tonight. As much as I like b*tching about her, I'm definitely going to miss her cooking/paid dinner dates/homemade cookies. She's leaving in about 10 days & I'm preparing myself for Rusty's bout of sadness. I guess I'd be sad too if I had to go back to meals cooked from a box. Poor fella, I told him not to get used to delicious tasting food.

  7. Starbucks is coming out with an even bigger cup, the Trenta. It's a 31oz cup that will only be available for iced drinks...boo! I was hoping to get my weeks' worth of java all at once in that big-o bad boy.

  8. Please rethink what you post on facebook. The stupid sh*t you put up can be seen by others & we do take offense to it, especially when it's about our ethnicity. (example: I'm having tamales for dinner & they were made by a REAL Mexican.) What the hell? It's not like there are fake Mexicans, moron.*

  9. I know it's a huge issue around the blogging community & there are a ton of woman out there ranting & raving about it so I'm probably going to lose some readers because of it but I have to admit I no longer care to hear about how much you support breast feeding. I don't care if you want all women to pull out the boob & feed their child in the middle of Olive Garden because it's your right as a mother. Personally, I don't want to see your boobie while I eat my Fettuccine Alfredo so cover it up. But whatevs, if you must then go for it but just stop whining about how you feel you're being judged.**

  10. In 11 days Rusty & I are going to have our 5 year wedding anniversary...this is crazy. It seriously feels like it was just yesterday we were married. I feel old, maybe it's baby time.

*this mexican remark was actually something someone I know posted & it took SO much strength to not tell her ingnorant a*s off.

** I completely & whole heartedly support breast feeding but I'm tired of hearing people whine about it. Also, most people only mind because they dont want to see it. As a courtesy, cover up, these were made to make you & everyone else more comfortable.



  1. I am SO glad I'm not the only one that feels that way about breastfeeing!

  2. I don't want to HEAR you breastfeed either...especially while I'm eating. Otherwise, do what you have to do mama's.

  3. The weather here sucks too. It's not hot, it's just damp and cold and that blows. And, the Trenta? I think I'd pass out after that much coffee but you can bet your sweet ass I'll be in line to try it out anyway!

    As for breastfeeding...I've had four kids and even I don't want to hear about it. I don't expect anyone to go to the bathroom to do it, but good Lord, find a way to keep everyone in your general vicinity from seeing your nipples.

    (love the new layout by the way)

  4. Did you see Stephanie Seymour and her teenage son in that lip lock? I think the Today show had it on a couple of weeks back. Fake or not, totally grossed me out.

    I've come to the realization that some Moms breastfeed so they can feel superior. Gross.

    And I couldn't have written it better, people really do not think when they write their status updates. Argh!

  5. I feel the same way about breast feeding, its great, but please cover up, especially out in public.

    I like your new look by the way!

  6. big fat NO to that "real mexican" comment and yes, i do believe in covering up when breast feeding, not everyone is delighted to see what you're doing! and people should not be posting everything that comes to mind on their fb status!

  7. I'm so with you on #1 and the breastfeeding thing kinda bugs me too. I had a friend who would feed her daughter in front of us and her daughter was two at the time!

    5 years!?!?! My hubby and I will be celebrating our five year too in June. What will you and Rusty be doing to celebrate?

  8. AHHHH, number 1 is so true! It's always just weirded me out. And if you'd like some cold weather, you're welcome to some of mine (it really freaks people in AL out when there's snow. Like, DEAR GOD, IT'S GONNA EAT ME freak out)

  9. @comment #1 - Did you watch the Modern Family episode where Claire and Phil get caught in a sticky situation with their kids on their anniversary? Ohgosh!


I love comments!
