Four Letter Word

What's another word for love? 

As if Love isn't strong enough, isn't obvious enough.

But dare not to say the word.

The one word

This one word

And its such a small word

A big four letter word

It's destined to be a heartbreaking word.

2014: Christmas

Sorry dear Dingleberries,

This is going to be one of those posts, some of you might make it through. Others may trickle off someone in the middle, then others as soon as they get through this sentence.

Mind you, I'm going to still love you, no matter which one you choose.  Because frankly, I don't think you'll tell me either way.

But I know some of you will make it all the way, you are truly a Dingleberry and in case you need to hear it in the beginning... Way to hang in there!


But I'm rambling ...

This post is allll about the Christmas, well more about Christmas. I think I had one other post, mostly about Santa. But as mentioned above, I tend to ramble .. So of course, there is really no telling what I said in my last post.

So Christmas,

It really came and went this year.  I'm slightly in shock at how quickly it passed.  Anyone else feel this way?  It really didn't feel like Christmas, I know I'm not the only person who feels that way. I've had numerous people telling me the exact same thing.  This means, I'm not the only crazy Monkey you'll ever meet, know, whatever.  How crazy would it be to actually meet a blogging buddy? I think that would be pretty crazy, cool!  :) Whatever!

Moving along ...

Christmas, other than the above mentioned stuff, was OK. I'm hoping Pokey got everything she wanted, but seriously .. Do they ever get all the want?  I'm finding this harder and harder to believe.

Must to my surprise, they had a good Christmas. Money was spent, I feel slightly broker than I was two weeks ago and I'm pretty sure I could get my first grey hair in 2015.

But we're not going there yet!

You ever feel like you have so much to say but just can't seem to get it all out in words... That's how  I feel tonight.   It's tragic.

These dern monkeys of mine make my world go around though.

I hope my dearest Dingleberries had a super awesome Christmas. New Year aka Pokey's birthday is rapidly approaching and once again, I'm feeling overwhelmed. But at least I have a game plan ...Or some kind of idea as to what I've got to get done anyway.

-Hang in there ...

Life is... gone to see Santa

The words just aren't coming to me tonight.  Perhaps I should be thinking about going to bed, but I just can't seem to wrap my thinking around that either.

I kicked the heater up a couple of degrees tonight, I've been very cheap frugal this year and avoided turning the heat up very high.  But tonight, tonight is different.  I feel the need to soak up some extra heat and just be warm.  There is nothing I hate more, than being cold.  You Dingleberries are well aware of that I assume.

Heavens know I complain A LOT about cold and the cold weather.

Today, was mostly good.  A large amount of stress has mounted on my back as of lately.  Just life and stuff weighing in on me I think. Sometimes it feels like those around me avoid all things regarding all things in hopes that things will just... go away. To their surprise, well eventual surprise  That is not the case. In fact, they should really take a good long look and see that hey their idiocy is probably in fact making things a whole hell of a lot worse than they can imagine.  Turns out, that whole common sense thing I was fussing about the other day... Yea, it doesn't come standard anymore.  Makes me want to SCREAM.

I think I need a vacation ... from most things. A few in particular.

So today I took the chirren to see Santa.  :)  It was pretty fun, we went to this place in town ( and I got a couple of pictures with my phone) We still haven't told Pokey about Santa yet, I'm not sure if the kids at school have convinced her yet, or not.  I did tell her this year that we believe in Santa, if we want gifts. I'm familiar of this whole Santa is a lie thing and we're lying to our kids and all by telling them Santa brings gifts, this annoys the hell out of me. Why can't we have an imagination and let them have some fun. We are only kids once.  I don't see the big deal and when people I know go off on it, I'm like geez.  Don't be such an ass.   

Pokey got her hair cut today too.  She enjoys it being short, no matte rhow much I try to convince her to let it grow. It's actually better this way, girl does NOT brush her hair.  Makes me nuts.

We had fun though, E Monkey wasn't exactly thrilled with this situation, but we made it work and there wasn't any of those HILARIOUS screaming crying santa photos that everyone else gets.

Sometimes, I secretly wish I could get those.  That's horrid isn't it?!

Scared of santa photos.. Have you googled this?  It's pretty funny.  :)

Last one and I'm done, so this place we went to, it's like a furniture store.  Free Santa man, I love it. But they have the worlds largest mattress. I know what you're thinking, probably the same thing I was thinking when I heard that.  

But OHMYGOD it's crazy big!

In this photo the kids are on one little end of the mattress...  This furniture store is in an old warehouse here in town and this mattress is soooo long.  I wish you all could see it, I wish I'd gotten more picture of it, or maybe took a picture of the whole thing.

It was shocking really.

I thought it was shocking when one of the neighboring towns took it upon themselves to attempt to win the record for most scarecrows.  OHMYGOD the amount of scarecrows, but I'm getting sidetracked.

This mattress was huge and I can only imagine it would be one of the worst things you'd ever sleep on, but whatever.

The kids had a blast running and jumping and rolling.  E Monkey had learned how to roll.  He was rolling around on the thing, was so funny.

I may have had moments of crazy stressed out I'm going to stab choke someone, but the little things like watching those kids laugh and play. Makes it all worth it.

Life is short, I shouldn't be such a bitch all the time.  Well, not to everyone anyway.  Some people just deserve it and I should be better than that. But it's so hard!! Sometimes....  Why do they make me the way I am!!

It's almost Christmas, it doesn't feel like it to me.  How about you?

Hang in there, until next time :)

Life is...insanity

Tuesday is here!
I heard something the other day, what was that ...  
Something about Tuesday being worse than Monday because it's still the beginning of the week (or something). Only they aren't making a big todo about it .. or something.
I get confused easily ya know.

  This shall be a long post!!! Even though, long posts tend to lose traffic...
 *heard that somewhere too*  
Oh who cares about traffic anyway?  
It's not like any of this is even note worthy, but I still keep making them.  

Anywho ..
Check out my nephew!!!
That's from this morning. He's already 3 months old and isn't he just soooo cute.
Almost as cute as E Monkey <3 

Look at that boy!  
Can you believe he's already a year and a half?
It's insanity!!!
He's not sweet either!
*note the scratch under my eye in the first photo*

Check out that style too!
That's all MB style right there
Poor thing, 
never had a chance.
I love this kid.

I mean GEEZ

Look at him!

That's right folks Im sharing a little insight into a MB life
Trying not to fling any poo today

It's nice, right? 

Just smile and nod.

That's what I do!

Remember Pokey?!!!

She's practically grown now.

Or it feels like it sometimes when I acknowledge the fact that she's almost as tall as me and pretty much meaner than I ever was!

She's still a good kid though

If I can get her away from that Xbox.

And finally,

Check out yesterdays adventures!  Pokey and E monkey have been sharing the chore of  emptying the contents of the dishwasher.

Yea, this happens..

Quite often actually.

I think I need a new  dishwasher.

well now, that wasn't too horribly long.

Hang in there my Dingleberries.

I love you turds.

Life is... annoyed

I logged in, with every intention of flinging some mad poo up in here today.  Checked into my post from the weekend and the upbeat mood and nice comments left there ..

I've changed my mind

Don't want you Dingleberries thinking I'm bi-polar or something, not that there is anything wrong with being bi-polar.
I'm going to shush up now!  hahah

But you know what? 

It's really annoying to think that someone feels as though they aren't liked by you, 
*note... I worded that three different ways and I'm still not sure about it*
but of course you like them. 
So you attempt to put forth a little effort into proving that to them. 
Which also seems absurb to me because I mean damn!!! 
Why do I have to prove that I like you?!?!
Geez people irritate the poo out of me!
Monkey jokes.
Do you ever just feel like you'd prefer to just be left alone?
There's nothing I wouldn't give to just be left in peace with my little monkeys, forever after.
I'm glad you Dingleberries are around to hear me complain,
 no one else wants to deal with it, 
ya know?  
That's another reason I love you turds ;)

Life is ... sunny

The sun came out today (and I'm not talking about myself) and it was GLORIOUS. There was a buzz in the air that you only read about, or hear about in movies. It was spectacular and a good reminder that I seriously cannot wait until summer (heck I'll even take spring at this point) comes back around.    It's December, in Georgia.  For those of you who are or have ever been to the state of Georgia. I am pretty sure that mother nature here is seriously bi-polar.  It's no joke.  It was like 70 today and I'm pretty sure it's freezing outside now!  But like I said, that's pretty normal here!

Weather aside, lets get back to today.

Today was good, saw some friends, spent a little time away from the chirrens. I love those kids, but sometimes, I think I love them too much. I want to keep them with me, like all the time.  I think sometimes I just have to let them be .... with someone else for a bit.  It's not always good with my anxiety, but it was nice today.

Between the weather and the people and the family and kids and pizza. Man today was great.

I know you guys worry about me sometimes, but I think I'm going to be OK. For  a little while longer anyway. Thanks dear Dingleberries ... For hanging in there. I know I say that all the time, but I mean it.  hahah...  You guys still rawk,

So yea, life is weird and things aren't always perfect ... But there are always means and ways to find something perfect to set your eyes on ... For a while.  Distractions are great.  :)

Maybe Christmas won't be so bad this year, just maybe.

Did I mention, life is weird

On occasion I've been looking back over the past few years of my blogging life.
It's been a strange life, hasn't it.
In only four short years seems like a lifetime or two ago.
It's weird how that works isnt it?
How quickly things change, suddenly and you're left ...
sitting there
saying to yourself
how in the hell did I get here?
How in the hell did I get back here?
Life is weird,
isn't it!
Hang in there Dingleberries
It ain't over yet!

Life is...

Life is weird.

It's so easy to feel like everything is pressing down on you at once.
I have some very bright stars in my sky but there are some dull ones in the way 

Life is hard.

Constantly struggle to stay afloat and not be what's inside me.

Miss seeing your face, your smile.

Quick Post

So I've found myself suffering some serious case of lack of interest again. I've also stumbled on a few posts on facebook this week that have me in a frenzy. 
This being said, I'm taking a vacation from social media. I think, if any of those folks really need me, they know where and how to find me.  I just can't stand reading, seeing all things on facebook right now.
I think I must be going through something ..

So this week, they're doing a birthday dinner for my nephew, he will be 17 this month.
I'm not looking forward to Pokey getting that old.
You know she's ten now!  Will be ELEVEN in January. OMG she's my little demon too. I swear, if either of my children kill me in my sleep .. It will be her. God I love her though.!!!
And no I'm not just saying that for fear of my life, not at all, not one bit ;)

So I'm stressing the birthday stuff, as usual. Not only is he in the realm of "I have no idea" but he's a boy.  My boy, he doesn't even care for much of anything as of right now, toy stuffs.  But 17 year olds, they're.... weird.  Especially the boy ones.  This boy not only is seventeen, but has long bleached hair and worships the whole 80's glam rock stuff.  Turns out ...
I wanted to get him a Crowder CD, because they're one of my current music crushes, but Mr MB doesn't think he would care for that at all. Guess I have to actually care what they like too huh ;)
(My new ringtone, awesome, right)

So ... whatever. I'm willing to just throw 20 bucks at the kid at this point. HA!

Anywho ....  All of that being said. I need to spread the word about the Christmas Airmail


Please go check it out and  sign up this year. Some of you may remember she did this in honor of Mama MB last year and it was and is always so much fun to get things in the mail. 
So check it out, here or you can click the picture (I think)  

Have a great day my dear Dingleberries.

MB turns 4

Well dear Dingleberries,
Here we are again,
another year.
Monkey Butt is officially 4 years old.
It's hard to believe I've been coming here and leaving pieces of poo for so many years.
And you Dingleberries have hung in there through it all.

It's been an interesting life, that is for sure.
I went through earlier and shared my first tow posts on the MB facebook page.
Of course my mad blogging skills have yet to come to me and I'm still ranting, B******G, and complaing about anything and everything most of the time.
But whatevs, my pain, suffering and complaining is just a reminder, that it could always be worse :)

Taking it all, one day at a time, loving and living and watching my chirren grow up.

With that being said,

Thank you dear Dingleberries.
For coming back, never minding the smell and hanging in there with me in this crazy adventure we call life.
God willing, there will be a tomorrow.
Another day for me to drop some poo and enjoy this life.

Happy Monkey Butt Birthday.

-Hang in there!!

Something good for dinner.

Invited Papa MB over for meatloaf dinner tonight.
It's been a while since we had some real dinner.
We always have lunch on Sunday's after church, but it's been a while since dinner. And lunch usually just consists of some gross fast food. Had Arbys today,
Sure it was something different for us, but still not good.
Not like this dinner good.  

Also made a trip up to some place called Morganton, Ga yesterday.
Which was interesting.
I saw a sign for a swinging bridge!  Which I'm pretty excited to go back and check out.
Also saw some neked guy on the side of the road. 
Guessing he had ants in his pants or something, cause he sho was butt neked for all the world to see.
Luckily Pokey didn't see anything!

Guess how big the monkeys are!!

Hmm, we all have that same look.
How cute is that!!

So back to the point of the post.

I was pretty bummed when Pokey took off to the living room to sit with her dinner.
I'm use to MR MB doing this
(turns out people really do not ever change)
So Pokey was doing the same tonight and it broke my heart a little, of course E monkey would be sitting in the kitchen with me, because he doesn't have much choice.  But now Pokey wouldn't be there with us.
I watched Papa MB set his plate on the table and was quite happy to see that he would be having dinner with me tonight.
It was awesome.
Eventually Pokey made it back into the kitchen with us.
My family may be falling apart and dysfunctional, but for just one night,
it was good.

Hang in there Dingleberries!

Just something nice

 Thought the place could use a little sprucing up.

Pictures of Mama MB.

Missing her like crazy always, but today and tonight something serious.

Yea, ok.

Been dealing with normal MB stuff lately,

nothing worthy of blogging of course.  

Then again there may be some out there that just 

shouldn't read it anyway.

Someone said to me, 

that I deserved better.

A part of me wants to lash out and ask them 


they they think can know something like that?

Don't they know me at all?  

Then again there are a lot of things that a lot of people don't know about me, 

of course this isn't always a bad thing.

Of course you all know I tend to let things fly around here too.

It's a good thing I have you dear Dingleberries to not spread my stuff around the interwebs or 


Wouldn't want everyone knowing the poo I deal with in my own life.

I don't just fling the poo, I get hit with it too.

As you noticed in the last post!

What would you say and or think if someone said to you, "you deserve better"?

-Hang in there my dear Dingleberries.

Too many thoughts.

Another random post.

Had a crazy morning yesterday, followed by some regret, some stress, getting pooped on and getting puked on.
Never a dull moment in the life of a MB 

So today, 
we're slow here at work.
I thought to myself this morning..
Hey I could talk to the gals at E monkey's daycare and see if t hey would let me work there.
 It's a Christian daycare you know.
  I'd been thinking about finding a job in a church or something anyway.
Food for thought.
Then the owner walks in. 
Why is it whenever I see that man I just can't stay on the thought of leaving this place? 
No it's not some crush or something like that
I just really respect what his intentions are and of course his work ethic.
They're good people.

After yesterdays car episode, he asked me this morning if I was still thinking about getting a van.

I'm wondering if I'm too cute to be driving a mini van? HA
That was terrible.

Hang in there dingleberries!

Poo Flinging:: Asshats

The look that most likely came across my face as this series unfolded, ha ha.

So this isn't so much a poo flinging so much as me going off on a quick rant.

Believe it or not I have 987,567,564,397 things to get done, tonight.  OK OK so maybe I exaggerate, a little!

So it went like this and I'm sure I'm paraphrasing.. Yes paraphrasing, it's what I'm suppose to be doing with the assignment tonight.  But I'd rather rant to you guys over some unimportant aspect of a MB life.

So the argument began by me being under fire at the fact that I have yet to ask my new bosses for a raise.  The new bosses that I know are not receiving a paycheck themselves. New bosses that are about 30 feet deep in a sink hole in the rear yard of one of their buildings. The same bosses that have been living out of an apartment home and now back in their own home with no kitchen for EIGHT months. A raise from the bosses whom now own three different shops instead of the one they began with.  The same bosses that don't seem to be able to keep things afloat and require my towing money to keep them above water.

Monkey Butt is under fire because I can't seem to bring myself to ask them for more money, all the while they are going through all of this listed above.

Is it me being silly and letting my kindness get in the way of business or am I playing it smart in assuring that  may have a chance at being there next year?  Be honest!!

So of course this ... discussion ... Went terribly wrong. I'm sitting at the place I'm being drilled over. Sitting there, unable to say what I need to and want to say because of course my co workers are around me.  I'm blue in the face and to put it quite bluntly...Could really fling two poos less about anything coming out of the ear piece to my phone.  Kill me now were my only thoughts ..

The conversation ended with me saying I had to go and hanging up ... I received a couple of text messages ... Paraphrasing again ... "I'm ****ing done with this ****ing bullshit" lovely right and then accusations that ... "You've obviously given up, why should I even ****ing try" .... Yea something along those lines ..

Story of my life right ... Guess I'm done ....

The look on my face says it all ;)

Looking forward to do nothing!

Not much to blog about as of lately. Nothing of great significanse going on either. 
Just hanging in there right now, 
trying to stay caught up.
It's been over a week or two since I've posted anything. I've been trying to stay busy at work and at times I find myself falling into greater distractions.
Very bad thing for me.  
Distractions I mean.
I pray all is well with the world wherever you are.  I hope soon I will have more to blog about too. I know there is plenty of catching up on posts for me to do.  
I will get them done.
Till then.
Hang in there my Dingleberries

Poo Flinging: SAHM's

I shouldn't do this, because I've been there and done that buuuut I wasn't a butthead about it (yes I just said butthead because I'm trying to be good!  TRYING)

So there is this....woman.... that I know and I realllllly don't care for her, but my faith tells me to love all people .. Perhaps this is more suited on my testimony page ?? I shouldn't fling poo there .

Back to the point ..

She is just..... a pain in my butt. I don't like to see her face, I don't want to talk to her, but I'm forced to smile and CHOKE DOWN THE BILE.  I have never disliked someone so much, well not in a long long time anyway.  I really don't know how to handle it to be honest ... Maybe I should hide some monkey aka dog turds in her van or something ... That could make me feel a little better.

What's my beef you ask?  Well, as most of you know, I'm a working mom of two with a mortgage, husband, dog and one mess of a house.  I've no time hardly to get anything done, rarely ever. Unless I stay home all weekend cleaning... 


on a side note... have you ever actually googled messy house pictures ??? wow!

Back to it....  This woman I know, finds it necessary to tell me that being a stay at home mother is harder than a working mother ... I KNOW.

So maybe this bugs me because I am at working mother and well it isn't always a bucket of joy. Now don't get me wrong, stay at moms have it ..hard.. also, what with no breaks and stuff like that ... Ahem ... WHAT ABOUT NAP TIME?  WHAT ABOUT BED TIME? 

How dare you lecture me that you work HARDER than I because of the fact that you get no breaks?  Whhhhaaaaaatttttt????

I go to work, an EIGHT HOUR DAY away from my dirty house and come home to take care of another FULL TIME JOB.



I want to hear this...

Full Plate Part 1: Episode 2

    Well hello my dear Dingleberries,

    I'm working on episode 2 of this whole "full plate" idea I had the other day? or was it week?  Man I hope it wasn't month?  I don't know, it doesn't matter.
    I'm in one of those ruts, with my life, marriage, job, faith. You name it, it's rutted out. 


    Full plate project was all things that are going on in the MB life at this time.  We know we covered the whole baby shower for Sister MB. OMG I'm glad that's over. I also have to cover the VBS but I'm holding off because I feel a rant and a giant poo flinging session coming with that one and just don't know if I should really go there.  ha ha.

    Original Post HERE

    Looking through the list there isn't much room to rant about.  Things have changed, things come and go. Of course.

    Had a huge argument yesterday over the phone and it's really left me at a loss. I've picked up thinking about old habits and things from my past.  Wanting to slip a little into the places I've been and came out of.  It's difficult sorting through thoughts and pains and ideas.

    It's some what overwhelming. So I'm forced to take it one day at a time, but I swear if this deep desire and stress to down a bottle of anything alcoholic doesn't go away tonight, I just may fall of the wagon.

    It's KILLING ME!

    Full Plate Part 1: Episode 1.2

    Happy MONkeyDay my dear Dingleberries.
    It's been a weekend, and OMG what a weekend! 
    But the good news, this post right here shall commence Full Plate Part 1 and we will soon be moving into Part 2.
    You're excited I know! 

    So I'd love to go into everything that I've been up to today, but I fear as though it would take away from this post, so I just won't. If we are friends on facebook, you already know what I've been up to today!

    So... I  started this post last MONkeyDay and as you can tell, I didn't quite finish this one up. So for those on the edge of their seats waiting for the conclusion..
    I'm going to fling this poo tonight.
    So sit back and enjoy a few photos

    My gift to the Mama To Be for the lil fella coming into the world,

    and after

    Not too shabby right?  I guess I gots some mad skills

    My gift for the guests :)

    It's a sugar scrub, you're not posta eat it!  Never figured out exactly why though. It's just sugar, veggie oil and some vanilla?  Any takers??

    Found a really cute idea for story book foods. This was pretty fun and definitely a must try again!

    Guess I had some baby shower skills after all.
    Can't wait to meet the lil guy and thanks everyone for taking the time to check out my crazy life :)

    Full Plate Part 1: Episode 1.1

    Baby Shower!!

    So I blogged a little yesterday about the upcoming shower. I'm excited to report, though terribly behind and feeling a wee bit overwhelmed, still.
    I've managed to nail down two of my crafts for the shower.
    Working on a baby cake and waiting on some tags for the jar.
    Check em out.
    ps.  Pinterest is pretty much AWESOME.

    A little note for baby Lou.

    and a little jar that I plan to finish filling with a sugar hand scrub as a little souvenir for all of the guest.
    I rock.
    I know!

    Full plate Part 1: episode one


    I've mentioned in my last post, among other things, that baby shower for Sissy MB was on my list of MUST DO!

    You would not believe how incredibly overwhelming and time consuming and  
     it is to plan, not only a baby shower but crafts for Bible School all the while finding out that not only did you plan the shower on the same day as
    1.  early registration for said Bible School. BUT
    2.  Mr MB has also neglected to mention this is also the same day  as the nephews THIRTEENTH BIRTHDAY!  Ahhhhh a major milestone and guess who won't be there!! 

    So all of that being said and out there. The baby shower, though stressful, is also pretty fun.  I remember being the host of her first baby shower, TEN years ago.  WE didn't do any of these new fun ideas that they have these days.  I'm sure they had these ideas ten years ago, bbuuuuut I didn't do them. I should have done them.
    I'm doing them this year:
    • Cute little party favors, 
    • cheesy little games for everyone.
    • I've invited friends and family.
    • It's going to be quite the shindig!
    I'm pretty excited! But it's back to work!! 

    -Hang in there!!

    Hard times coming...

    Papa MB and I were texting today, I think the time may be approaching that we have to confront Mama MB's things.  Things in particular this time just so happen to be her clothing.

    I myself had requested a few items last year so that I could attempt to make some of those memory bears.  We haven't done it yet.

    Today he brought the subject up because my aunt has recently inquired on the matter as well. Turns out she would like to make a blanket or something like that.

    I don't know how it's going to be having to sit down and go through her things.  He asked me if I would like to wear any of her things, or if they would fit.

    I just don't know how I feel about this. I don't know what to do or even how to approach the issue. I don't think I'm ready.

    -Hang in there

    Project: Full Plate part 1

    E Monkey had his first watermelon this weekend. It was a lovely weekend, finally.  It seems a lot lately we're so busy and running wild. It was nice to just kind of hang out for  a minute. I found myself forcing myself not to run out to the car while my sister in law sat with the boy. I made myself walk and breath in some deep breaths.  He is by no means a handful or anything, yea that was a lie. E Monkey is ALL OVER THE PLACE, he's such a silly little monkey. I imagine you all can tell from all the photos I share though.

    Father's Day was good. I missed my Dad some, he decided just to go home and we went out to Mr MB's parents house for the day.  Which was nice, Pokey enjoys the pool and she was able to see her uncle.  Good times ..

    So to the point, I'm working on too many things right now, I'm sure blogging shouldn't be my thing at this moment, but it's a nice break from the work.  Besides it gives me time to get the ideas down somewhere, rather than lost with my next random thought.

    So my list, as if you care. But honestly I think my main goal in sharing is so that if some of you have a source or perhaps know of something that could help me .... You could forward that information my way, lol. See, it's working in two ways for me. Right?

    Top of the list:
    • My Sisters Baby Shower.... I haven't shared have I? My sister is expecting her third child. They've been blessed, it's a BOY.  I've warned her the best I can about how much of a mess they are. Unfortunately the Dr's have also told her little man has spinia bifida.  Very sad indeed but at this time, it's a mild case. It's a very small opening in his back,  he should be able to walk, suffer no bladder control issues and should not need shunts in his brain.  She's blessed indeed. 
    • Vacation Bible School.... I signed up to head the nursery class this year. It's exciting and a little overwhelming at times.  But thankfully Pinterest has helped me a lot with what few  ideas I can scrap together for the kids.  We probably won't have very many but  I think it will be OK.  A few is better than none and I know there will be atleast mine and the lady who is helping me :) 
    • Ya know someone said something the other day and it bothered me. Nothing unusual there right?  Well this to me seemed like something that could seriously harm someone in the long run. Just hurtful and almost abusive in nature.  Of course it's not my place to judge or even to say anything to this person. Who am I to tell someone how not to mistreat their children? Or how that sounded to me.  I don't know these people well enough to attempt to understand their, what seems to me, VERY DYSFUNCTIONAL relationship. Like I have all this room to talk though right?! That's been bothering me though, it really bothered me when I first seen/heard it, but it's just been hanging around for some reason.  It will pass soon enough I imagine.  People just don't know what they're doing sometimes I think. Either that or people are just really.....hard.
    • We have chickens .... Did I tell you?  The MB family has THREE chickens. I won't explain in detail because Mr MB was really negative about the whole reason behind my chickens, but whaetevs. A MB can't care for long, right?  It's my little work in progress, but we're making it work
     It may be a bit easier by the end of this to understand the messes I get myself into these days.  So we got this chicks, around Easter, long story. So now I have chickens, three of them and they're all girls. So my new intentions are to utilize these chickens for food purposes.  As you can tell by their living quarters... There is still work to be done. 

    Nightmare!!  At times I'm like OK strike that, I will just continue to buy my eggs at Kroger and be done with it.  Geez. 

    • Next up... My cloth diaper addiction. Luckily I've satisfied that addiction and it's safe to say .. I AM DONE BUYING CLOTH DIAPERS.  My name is Monkey Butt and I am not an addict!!!  :)  But now, I've got this great idea ... I can have more monkeys, use those cloth diapers for those monkeys and then start making cloth diapers at home and sell them!! It's a genius idea isn't it!?!?!?!

    So this post is getting rather long .... from what I've read on best blog tips ever, yea I made that up. But seriously it told me I shouldn't write long blog posts, because people are in a hurry and don't have time for it.... go figure.

    So if you've made it this far...You're a true Dingleberrie.  Thank you for Hanging in There. I'm going to end up with a series on this project: Full Plate ...

    To be Contd.

    It's not just superstition!

    Well here we are, another Friday 13th. Which in times past I've posted a post with a clipping from the local newspaper here.  I had it hanging on my desk for years, but I've gotten rid of pretty much everything now. With the exception of some new artwork from my niece and the kiddos school photos.  So this time I've found something more interesting for you.  Hope you enjoy.  Just FYI don't go camping at the lake or anything!  Just sayin! So here we go check out this Friday 13th!

    Real fear

    The fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia - "Frigg" is the Norse goddess whom Friday is named after and "triskaidekaphobia" means the fear of "13". It's also known as paraskevidekatriaphobia, partly from the Greek word Friday. It is a real fear - some people who have this disorder are even too afraid to say the words “Friday the 13th”. Others avoid flying on a plane, going to work, or even getting out of bed. According to the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in Asheville, North Carolina, millions of Americans are afraid of Friday the 13th. Symptoms of this fear range from mild anxiety and a nagging sense of doom to full-blown panic attacks.

    Hang in there!
