Muscle Shirt or Leotard?

Ok, I have had enough. Why don't the same rules apply to men's workout attire that apply to womens?

What makes men think it is ok to wear the same thing to the grocery store or school function that they wear to the gym? Now it's one thing if you just left the gym and your stopping by the store to pick up some milk but these men are obviously skipping the gym completely. There is hair sticking out everywhere and like 5 gold chains. Oh yeah and white ringed athletic socks up to their knees!...seriously I think I might lose it the next one I see.

How would they like it if we went to their company party in a Leotard?

Titan Boy Busted!

OK, i know we all have some crazy stuff on our Ipods. Admit it! I definitely do! There is a crazy array of songs on there, some I would even be embarrassed to tell you.

Last night as I was preparing for a long night of work ahead of me I stopped in the kitchen to kiss mini #1 on the head. I noticed Titan Boy in the corner jammin to my IPOD. As soon as I turned around he turned red and started hitting buttons....HMM, thats fishy so I run over to look at what he was listening too.

We he couldn't push the buttons fast enough and he was BUSTED! Oh yeah! BIG.TIME!!!!

He had Celine Dion's To Love You More cranked and he was almost singing right along!!

He started laughing so hard he could barely breathe.!!!

So this got me thinking...What is the craziest thing on your IPOD that you would be embarrassed to admit? For everyone who comments with the 5 funniest songs between now and Saturday I will put your names in a hat a draw one for a SASSY HAPPY SURPRISE!!!
All you have to do is CONFESS!

New Job Opportunity

The other evening I opened my inbox and found a new job opportunity waiting for me...

I got an offer from "Fantasy Chat" to become an operator! Oh what fun this could be. I am not sure of the hours and how I would do it with my crazy schedule but I am thinking since I have a cell phone and could take calls anywhere that this might be the way to put the mini's thru college!

Here's how I imagine a conversation might go...
Tahoe Girl ...(in sexy fantasy chat voice) "Hello and welcome to Fantasy Chat. What's your fantasy?"
TG: Oh, mine too...what are you wearing?

TG:HEY STOP HITTING YOUR SISTER! Oh sorry, where were we...yes, that feels so good...I like that..I SAID TO LEAVE HER ALONE AND EAT YOUR DINNER! Oh my I'm so sorry about that I really wish you were here so we could...IF I HAVE TO STOP THIS CAR SOMEONE IS GOING TO BE IN BIG TROUBLE!!!!
TG: Ohh thats better now I can focus everything on you ...HAVE A GOOD DAY AT PRACTICE SWEETIE!...it's just you and me....OHHH WHATS THAT SMELL?....sorry I'm gonna have to call you back!

I can only imagine my side of the conversation as I think the other end might be too embarrassing for all of us!

Somehow I don't think I would get the job after all....

Now I have seen everything....

To fix one of my machines that was down a trip to Sears was required. Reluctantly I ran up there and headed straight for the tool section, not one I frequent often.

After finding my metric allen wrenches I head for the checkout (Of course after browsing the clearance Lands End stuff). On my way I overheard this conversation...

"Now that's how you buy something on ebay. You just need to paypal them the money."

I turned around expecting to find employees surfing on the clock and found two elderly gentleman at one of the "shop Sears online" computers. One was teaching the other one how to buy something on ebay and setup a paypal account. It was a riot to see two men in jeans, flannel and suspenders surfing the net at Sears!

What do you think they were buying?

Hiding the Jewelry....

No not from burglars or anything, from the mini tahoes....

Scenes from my closet part 1:
Thurs Am, trying to get dressed for work and Sassy Tahoe comes into my closet and starts asking me about these little jewelry pouches I have from my grandmother. I begin to tell her all about them when she chimes in....

ST: Mom, you know what you need? You need a gold kit for all your old gold! You call the number and they send the kit right to your door. You don't have to do anything except put your old gold in the kit and mail it back to them! The mailman does the hard part and then they will send you CASH for your jewelry. And you can use that cash to go on vacation, or pay bills or buy me stuff! (Without taking a breath)You really need that gold kit for all your old gold. And they will send you CASH mom for vacation!

She recited the ENTIRE commercial almost word for word. I was so shocked that all I could say was "Do you think you watch too much TV?" (keep in mind she is 4!)

Scenes from my closet part 1.......
Saturday PM, I am ironing and Mini #1 comes in to visit

He is checking out stuff on the dresser and opens my jewelry box.

MT#1: Mom, you have a lot of jewelry....you know what you need? That goldkit from TV. They will send you cash for your jewelry. And which would you rather have...cash or jewelry?

OK....WTF? All they are proving is that they watch WAY too much TV and that infomercials definitely do work!

Oh but I found the list of stuff they are buying people for Christmas...

Grandma....Aqua Globes
Mom....Lite Up Craft Cutter
and I am sure our stockings will be filled with Oxi Clean and Hercules Hooks....

She's Back!....

Supermom that is! School is just around the corner and I am feeling the summer of takeout and drive thru guilt! Yesterday I worked all day to stock the freezer with healthy meals!

It started with a trip to the store (three mini's in tow as Titan Boy was camping with the guys.) When we got there we found out the playroom was CLOSED! Why on earth would I take three mini's shopping? I tried to get the customer service guy to let them play cashier with him but he said they weren't tall enough to reach the scanner. So down all the aisles we go! Turns out mini #1 is great at chasing mini #3 when he runs off or returning all the items mini# 3 secretly throws in the cart. All he got away with was a box of store brand marshmallow cereal! That's better than when it's just me! I got lots of sympathetic looks from people like "Aww look at the crazy lady with all the kids!" or the giggles from the "grandparent" group. Yeah, they thought to themselves "Payback is a B**ch!" Anyway, $300 later we were headed home with a car full of good stuff!

I spent the rest of the day cooking and prepping! It was great fun actually, helped to make the summer take out guilt go away! We ended up with 8 meals in the freezer and dinner for today ready for the crockpot. Somehow I also got 6 loads of laundry done!

I went to bed feeling satisfied and content that my kids will have a few healthy meals on school nights!

Ahh, the problem is Supermom only comes in spurts and I am sure she is gonna be gone soon. Oh well, she was great while she was here!

Me: I'm not mad. Why do you think I'm mad?

Mini # 1: You have your mad face on.

There ya go, I am offically a mom cause I have a "Mad Face".
