From: One tired exhausted mom

I think I may have bitten of more than I can proverbially chew this semester. I am so damn tired and my classes are so intensive!!!! I am doing a paper or 2 a week. Add that to the fact that I have to post to some 2 conference in each class (there are 3), I am overrun. Right now I'm trying to get the kids to help out by just being quite.

(Y'all can quit laughing now!!!)

Also, they've put me back on my topamax prescription as I'm allergic to my house. Here's the dealio there. On topamax I lose weight, so I have to take a supplement (ensure, boost, whatever??) yay me...

I need a nap..anyone want to come give me one???

I swear.....

A lot apparently. No, not really my friend Jen swears alot more than me so I figure I'm good.

Anywho...exactly how did we get on the subject?? Oh well here goes...I was 'informed' that a lady doesn't swear...

by who?? oh the six year old diva that lives in my house.

The offending word: CRAP!!! So, damn it lets remember I'm a lady??? oh wait that wasn't a more try..

I'm a lady
I don't swear..

Now after you quit choking...back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Friday's Feast One Hundred and Eighty.


Have you ever played a practical joke on anyone? If so, what did you do and who was your victim?

A couple of years ago my child asked for a DS for Christmas, so I got one that was filled with gummies--wrapped it and put it under the tree. (Her real DS was hidden in another box)


What do your salt and pepper shakers look like?

regular ole salt and pepper shakers.


Where is the next place you plan to visit (on vacation or business)?

I think in a few weeks we are going to do a weekend in Paris.

Main Course

What kind of lotion or cream do you use to keep your hands from getting too dry?

I have so many lotions...I love to buy Bath and Body Works so I have a variety. Whatever I feel like that day.

One of "those" people??

I was on another message board and we were 'discussing' the fact that sometimes we had 'those' neighbors. You know the one's who you can't stand.

~~ The one who calls all the time
~~ who expects you to watch their kids at a moments notice.
~~ who always offers to do things for you..that you don't necessarily want them to.
~~ the one's who are just too nice.

I started wondering...Am I one of 'those' people? Do I not respect personal space?
Do I tell too much personal stuff about myself?

Ok I know I'm probably the last one. I do not have a filter and sometimes I will tell too much, but hey. That' me. As for the rest, I don't think so, but who knows.

So, this led to a discussion about 'friends' we wish we hadn't made and I've got a couple of those too...but I'm much too nice to 'break-up' with them. I always worry about hurting other's feelings and well just don't want the drama that goes with it...

**note to you 'lurkers' who know me...IT's NOT YOU>>...I LIKE YOU!!!

So, what about you? do you have those friends? Are you one of those people? Am I? Is that why no-one reads my blog??

I think I'll go pop open a bottle (or two) of wine and think about this...

So out of it..

I'm in a human sexuality class this semester and one of our first assignments was to talk about how the media influences sexuality.

I'm old and apparently don't listen to music or watch TV as people were bring up all kinds of shows and songs that I didn't even know about or hadn't seen. Shoot.

I thought I was a 'hip' know I listen to that 'superman' song..well at least I did until I found out what it was about...

Hip?? or need a replace hip is what I now think...


Going to change my depends now...
