The Ramblings of a Redneck Diva
Saturday, November 27, 2004
Just a few meandering thoughts....ramblings, if you will
Mood:  happy
*I have spent two days in my house without leaving - with my children.
*Yesterday I wore sweats and an incredibly corny Christmas sweatshirt. Today I'm wearing shorts and a t-shirt. (Oklahoma weather - go figger)
*I have been able to straighten my hair two whole days in a row because the humidity is less than 70%.
*My husband took my son to karate and didn't even gripe or sigh when I asked.
*Husband bought condoms all by himself last night - my little man is growing up so fast! *tear* (Yeah, go ahead and put that in the ol' TMI file. I'll wait.)
*We watched the Grinch last night - not the crappy new one, but the original with Boris Karloff himself.
*I slept till nearly 8 this morning.
*I cried unashamedly yet again when I watched Annabelle's Wish.
*I have listened to nothing but Christmas music since last week.
*I don't think it is possible to get tired of Elton John's "Step Into Christmas".
*It is, however, possible to get realllllly tired of Wham's "Last Christmas".
*I have managed to unlock a whole bunch of groovy stuff on my brand spankin' new Sims: Bustin' Out.
*My family is home from Florida finally. I missed them.
*My house is relatively clean except for my bedroom. This distresses and disturbs me. Yet I'm strangely not compelled to do a thing about it.
*When the children get quiet it's always blessed respite. Until you get this nagging feeling that they are doing something very. very. bad.
*My feet are cold. Think it has something to do with the fact I am wearing shorts during the last week of NOVEMBER?
*Tonight the husband and I are going to string Christmas lights down our hallway, making "Christmas Tree Lane" (they named it that, we didn't) for our children for the second year in a row. You've never seen 3 happier kids than when that hallway lights up for the first time. Who knew 2 dozen nails and an extra string of Christmas lights could bring so much joy? Yep, it looks pretty damn trashy, but when the munchkins are that happy it really doesn't matter how trashy you look. Well...sorta.
*I hate making pie crusts. I really suck at it, too. I did,however, get a new recipe from a friend online, so we'll see how it turns out here in about 15 minutes when I commence to making pies.
*My sister is coming over to play Sims: Bustin' Out with me. I missed her when she was having T'giving with the Mouse. But still I will kick her ass in 2 player mode and she will succumb to the power of the almighty Queen of the Sims.

I think that's just about all the random thoughts I had wandering around alone in my head. At least for awhile. Wow, it's amazingly quiet in there head, that is.

I love these snippets of what's going on with you!
For some reason I thought: "My husband took my son to karate and didn't even gripe or sigh when I asked." was pretty funny!
Great blog today friend!

Oh, it's certainly possible to get tired of "Step into Christmas."

Try PLAYING Christmas music on the radio for the next month, with people calling incessantly, asking to hear the song RIGHT AFTER YOU PLAYED IT.

"I just played that one."

"Yeah, but it's Christmas time. Can't you just play it again?"

As if the fact that it's closer to Christmas means that I can throw all the rules out the window just because you weren't paying attention...

Oops, sorry. Love that Elton John Song! You're right as rain, you are!

For you to say "Great blog today friend!" just gave me goosey bumps alllll over me body. I stand in awe of the almighty Monkey . . . *bows low*

Here's a little inside info: as far as the husband goes, the REASON he took the boy to karate without griping was because I flippantly said "If you wanna play paddy-fingers tonight, big boy, you will have to buy condoms." THEN I asked him to take the boy to town to karate. There would've been much sighing and griping had he NOT gone. I am so evil that way.

Resolution: I will stop calling the radio stations in states far from my own now since I can't actually hear what songs they have just played and it really pisses off the DJ's who have listened to entirely too much Elton John and Wham! and are going to report me as a stalker if I keep it up asking for songs to be repeated "just because it's Christmas time".

There...happy now, Derek? Geez! Some people have no Christmas spirit WHATsoever!

Name: Redneck Diva now the last shred of hope I had of one day relaxing and being able to stop worrying about the welfare of the cat, the walls and/or the toilets is just gone.
