I have to say first, the sign guy got a new sign!!!! HIP HIP HOORAY! I wasn’t able to snap a pic because my phone was in the trunk, don’t ask, at least I wasn’t texting and driving…but I will post his new sign tomorrow…
I had to take the boys to the pediatrician today. Cameron was in the hospital this weekend with pneumonia and flu and the boys were due their annual checkup today. The boys are growing and Cameron is getting better, but the pediatrician called me fat! Yep, you read right. And I didn’t even step on the damn scale! And by the way, I’m looking for a new pediatrician….He told me the boys were good, but that Maddy was close to being overweight and judging from me, it runs in the family. I said, “did you just call me fat?!?!” and he said, “no,” and quickly changed the subject. Seriously, I know I put on some holiday pounds but come on. Seriously, COME ON!
I’m going to move on…I’m getting moody just telling you about it.
After the dr’s visit and some retail therapy at Target, I come home and quickly scan through facebook. So, I open facebook and just quickly roll through the feed and comments and seems today was an interesting day amongst fellow facebooker friends and the 6 degrees….I will just post them below and maybe you will find as humorous as I did today. Seems I wasn’t the only one who had a stressful day….and hopefully they won’t mind being quoted….
“Seriously the music teacher at TAFT slapped my little sister…”
“A science teacher threw a potato at my niece a few years back – it wasn’t a good thing…lol”
“IN THE FACE!”
~~~~~~~~~~~above 3 are linked~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“out prowling …”
“The young piggies are sitting just past Walmart on 412 circle jerking…watch your speeds.”
“Be afraid of the cheese … be very afraid”
“Don’t skip dessert! It’s national Pie Day!”
“you’re fetishes are not my concern”
“Who is cooking dinner I’m hungry!!”
and on that note, I am hungry too…taking my mom out for a steak dinner and maybe some pie….
Some damn fool with a gun, who didn’t like our local sign guy, shot down his sign….I’ve been waiting patiently for the last 2 weeks for him to replace it but he has yet to so…I mean, come on! Where else am I going to get my weekly laughs? Not from Ryan’s sense of humor I can tell you that much…just kidding Ryan… No,not really.
Maddy was not as upset as I was…He actually said, “Finally! Now we don’t have to drive by his house all the time!” making me feel like a stalker…Then he asked me why I liked that sign so much. So I tried to explain to him the best way I could about the freedom of speech and how he was exercising his right to his freedom of speech. And how his weekly postings made my week. I tried to explain to him that sometimes people don’t like the crazy sign guy’s words, which resulted in his sign being shot down, but that he had the right to put whatever he felt on that sign.
So now Maddy wants us to have our own sign. I told him I didn’t think the neighbors would appreciate it. Then he gave me the same speech about freedom of speech….so I am thinking about it…may not be a sign in the front yard, but I may create an online sign and post it randomly on here. Just warning you…
Ryan works at a great dealership. The people he works with are great. The people he works for are wonderful. The dealership is small but perfect and are like family. On Saturdays, Ryan often takes Maddox to work with him. They have a small desk in the front of the showroom that Maddy believes to be his office…so he has his papers and crayons and little toys in the drawers and a phone that he uses to page the salespeople. He keeps asking Linda, the office manager, where his computer is…He truly believes he works there. So yesterday, Ryan took Maddy and Maddy hasn’t been there for about a month, because the last time he was there, he complained of being bored, and Ryan fired him. SHOCK! Maddy was heartbroken but he was quickly rehired once he cleaned his room and found his headgear for wrestling. Don’t you wish it was that easy in the real world to get rehired? So yesterday was his first day back to work. Maddy was so happy, not bored and had a great day.
This morning, after sleeping in, and reading the paper, the boys did their thing. Ryan was watching the game in the man-cave. Maddy was getting ready to go play outside with his friends. Cameron was in costume. A weird costume, but that’s how Cameron rolls…and I go to my mom-cave to check my Facebook. When I open my Facebook page, I quickly realize that it was Maddy’s page and yes, he has a Facebook so he can play games, because I was tired of receiving all those game requests for games I don’t play….But he had message… So me being a nosy mom, opened his email and saw this.
So there I am, at my computer, drinking a coke, munching on a Skor candy bar that Ryan bought me a case of….don’t ask…and I start crying like a baby. Why? Because my kids have the best dad ever and I am the lucky one who married him.
Our favorite, and at this point, only crazy signer is back to weekly posting! Now that the local elections are done, he is back at his weekly posting.
I’m thinking there needs to be more crazy signers out there…And I would gladly step up to the plate, but I don’t think my neighbors would appreciate it…
OPPOSITE SIDE: Which I agree with and can’t argue…
THIS WEEK: <Now, the pictures are BAD! Because I just happened to drive by in my car, and tried to snap a picture while being stealth by driving by at a creepy slow pace….next time I will just wait til I am in Ryan’s car of the week>
and yes, that is half of my tinted window and half of the window open…I apologize.
Now let me tell you what I have noticed….He has plenty of the letters “O”, Look at his postings this week…so therefore, in my mind, I am correct in assuming his “Masque” comment weeks before was deliberate…
Now, I have to get back to X Factor…I can’t stop watching Britney…She just isn’t that “hit me baby one more time” girl…I want the old Britney back!
Are playing with my emotions…..
I bought a SHOW ME CASH TICKET, because the jackpot was up to $160,000. That’s unusually high for SHOW ME CASH. Which is a Missouri only lottery, which in my head means greater chances of winning…
My numbers were 7-12-13-22-33
The winning numbers, which by the way, no one won, were 06-13-14-21-32.
I was one flipping number off except for 13…..Is that not shitty….makes me ALMOST not want to play anymore…but the pot is now $190,000….and I have to run to Casey’s before it’s too late to buy a ticket…
Once the boys started school, I would hop on this treadmill I bought off Craigslist for $50.00. It’s in the mancave, aka garage, and I didn’t want to work out in the 100 degree heat this summer.
But now both boys are in school and instead of working out on this ….
I decided to use my leftover chalkboard contact paper on this…..
It’s getting to be fall season, which means Beer bread and chocolate chip cookie season in my book….Soooo, instead of running to the computer to find the recipe each time, I decided to put them inside the cabinet doors and, voila! INSTANTANEOUS ACCESS TO THE GOODS….
The PLUS side to this is when I eat too much of the beer bread and cookies, because there is always a when… I have a new treadmill just waiting for me.
