A sad update and some a snippet of good did come

**Update:  Remember earlier when I mentioned the doggie the police had me search a car for?  Well he wasn't safely at home.  Turns out he must have ran out of the car during the clean up and removing the owner of the car. They found him later today, he didn't make it and I found out the owner of the car has a broken back.  What a sad and scary day. Hug someone tight, because you never know when horrible things will happen.  The worst part about this job sometimes is hearing and knowing about these bad accidents.

All of that sadness aside, I was able to get off on time(ish). Of course I had to make a Kroger stop but I came home and hung out with the monkeys.  E Monkey and I went on another walk. Heading out the door he says, "wanna go see poppa". Of course, how do you say no to that?  hahaha.. So we made out little adventure to Poppas. The bird, Harley, scares the crap out of him every time he screams but E monkey loves to eat up Papa MB's Popsicles.

The last two photos are from tonight, thought they were too funny not to share and the one of Pokey.
Today is my very merry unbirthday, she's baking my cake
it was gooood!!

A grey day

I'm feeling a bit down today, maybe it's the weather.
It's very grey here!  I've heard it mentioned that some have seen some rain today, I'm not one of those.
  Haven't seen any rain today.

Got a call this morning, the police department requested me to search a vehicle for a possible "wounded dog".  Not only did I not want to find a dead dog in this car, I didn't want to stick my hand under a seat and find a wounded dog that would chomp down on my hand.
Luckily, no dog.  
I've  heard it rumored they think the dog was in the safety of it's home this morning when the accident occurred. 

It's a strange kind of day for me, too much caring, too many feelings.  I feel like the Grinch when his heart grows, "I'm leaking!". But seriously, I'm not crying.

Guess who's back...

Lookie Lookie who's back!  I fixed my hair!  I say fixed, because it was broken. That mess of a blond and light brown, was it broken. 

I love my black hair and after tasting the rainbow (that sounds funny) I am offically calling this my look, well color.  I know I get bored and make mistakes, but hopefully this is the last time I get bored enough to think I'd look ok as a blond, or light brown or even red.  Because though I get plenty of compliments no matter the color, I feel most like me when it's this adorable black color.

 So, welcome back .. ME! 

-Hang in there

A minute outside

I've been eating a little better and trying to get out of the house on days that we don't have somewhere to be.  Today was one of those days, we had fun.  I started working on a crazy rant, psycho poo flinging post.  But this is better.

 Sorry Dingleberries, this was one I was working on last week and didn't get it loaded.  Somestimes there is a delay between my phone and this google + thing and well ... I forget stuff sometimes.

Me and my monkeys went on a little walk, went visit Papa MB and do some walking ..

E monkey Loves popsicles. 


Hoping all is well your way today!!

Yes, all we need is love

Sometimes it's to easy to take a look around, open ones ears and ones eyes and see all of the bad.  All of the evil that lurks around each and every corner you can see. 

I read a post tonight, a story about another little child who lost their life.  For no reason other than someones demons.  

These things makes the world bad

But rest easy, there are still good things in the world, it's important not that we look past these bads.  Not that we accustom ourselves to the horrible. 

It's important that we are aware and that we CARE for one another again.  We look after one another and watch out for each others babies.  

These demons just need a lid put on their heads, a cage to contain them in.

This is still our world where our babies can be safe and we don't have to worry about what demon is lurking in what corner.  

Stand up and be strong, be aware and just straight up CARE for each other again .

How does the song go?  "All we need  is love"  Yea ....  "love is all we need"

I challenge you!

Summer Ya'll

So, we've wrapped up this thing called summer. It's September, already and from what I hear they are predicting it to be cold by the end of the month.  Which totally sucks to me, I'm already cold. What's it going to be like in months to come?
We've plans to go on a weekend getaway with the family in the N Ga mountains ... in November. I know, I probably didn't think that through. The idea was nice though, sitting around a cabin with the heat on, fire going, blankets and no reason to go outside at all. Sounds fabulous, doesn't it?

But I'm rambling, I've got a lot to share tonight.  So summer came and went, so did many other thing,s I'm going to share a few of those with you all tonight, since I didn't post all summer long.  So check it out!

Pokey graduated the 5th grade, can you believe it?  She's in middle school this year, it's CRAZY. I had a thought on the way to work this morning, Seems like it wasn't that long ago we were living in a crappy little two bedroom apartment in Duluth and she was starting grade K.  It's crazy sometimes.

I manned up and planned a few family gatherings this year, with hopes of planning more but just can't seem to get the masses lined up. Maybe a Halloween shindig to come.  This one pictured above I planned with my aunt and cousin, my aunt lives about an hour away and has some kinds of anxiety about leaving the town she lives in .. So we accommodated her and brought the shin dig to her.  It was fun.

Pokey's sad face... Probably pouting because I ran out of money (as usual) 

::evil giggles:: E*monkey dumped out some of the shreddings from Granny MB's shredder.  In his defense, his little car was in there.

I made E*monkey sit through yet another hair cut.

Took Pokey to see Third Day, other than it being too loud, she had fun!

Papa MB's brother passed away, first we made the trip down to a place called Cairo, Ga for the viewing and cremation.  Papa MB also retrieved a few belongings from their residence. We made the trek back and then a week or so later we drove up to the mountains for the Memorial Service. It was lovely.  We found a swinging bridge and I made Papa MB stop for it.  

There was this tree also

I'm not sure what the monkeys are doing here... Being silly, as usual. But at least no one is crying

Pokey and I went to the Outcry tour. You'd think I'd be the "cool mom" by now.  No, she still hates me and complained the whole time on this one.  Lovely.

My phone has an option for this ... Pokey made it

Look at my sweet babies hair

I have a foam plate on my head

My sweet nephew turned ONE 

E*monkey picked up a case of the head lice this year .....  He's bald now. Makes me a sad

My plants have not died yet

Crazy kids

We went to Celebrate Freedom, more concerts.  It was fun!  Pokey complained the whole time. I think it must be a trend for her. 


It was a good summer, never a dull moment. That is for sure.  Hope you all did something exciting with your warm weather :)

Girls night out!

This is my "I think the girls have committed to the going out for a taste of India" face.  I made sure to get into facebook to day and contact them in regards to confirmation of the "date". 
It's been years! 
So we're going into Athens, Saturday night for Indian food. 
I can't wait. 
It's been a slowish kind of day today, I logged in to tell you all the great news and then realized I could do some more reading while I was waiting for the pictures to back up so I could upload this goofy one. 

I hope everyone is having a swinging kind of day ... And not the kind of swinging that lands you a divorce or something worse, lol ...  Ahem ...  Swinging, like monkeys from the trees. You know that's always a blast.

Cya next time folks!

-Hang in there!

Sunday, so soon

I've been strangely tired all day,  though I know it's from staying up late last night.  Yea, that was dumb.

I logged in tonight with hopes of posting, something.  But instead I did something better and ran around reading blogs and posting some comments. It's been a while.

Now I'll just post a few words and head to bed.  I've so many things I could say (complaints and poo flinging mostly) but I'm trying to refrain.

It's been a piss poor weekend, which is unusual for me.  I'm excited that there may be a girls night out coming up this Saturday. I hope it works out, because I seriously can't remember the last time I seen these girls.

Good night, Dingleberries!

What's the DL on "real foods"

(photo credit)

Shoot, this is like three in a week. You dingleberries might drop a jaw.  Look at me go ;) 

So .. here lately I've been tasting new fads.  
  • A while back remember I posted about one I'd found where this blogger went for a period of time without wearing underwears?  I can check that one off my list. While not exactly liberating, it was ... well nothing really note worthy. I didn't feel any more or less free than usual.  
  • Recently I've picked up this fad where rather than washing ones hair with soap you just rinse with water and massage your scalp.  While I was worried I'd look like a grease trap on my head it's actually not that bad.  My hair seems OK with being rinsed and massaged.  So, no more shampoo for me.  Even with my hair dyed, it hasn't froze up on me or anything. Check that one off as a success and one I'm not giving up on just yet. 
All of that aside, lets move on to what I've got for today. So I follow a page on FB about eating "real foods". They have challenges, 10 days and even 100 days. While spending is a big issue for me. Being a living on week at a time and hardly having no money ever anyway ..
 I'd like to at least try to keep myself and the kids as healthy as possible.
I'm the worst kind of conspiracy nut and am usually pretty sure it's all just a front to sell people on a new lifestyle.
But what if they're right?
What if I eat better and feel better?
Lose weight
Dont die of something early in life
The world is full of what ifs
But of course, I'd like to try. 
So what I'm asking today, have you ever tried it?

I have two monkeys

They're getting so big .... 

Pokeys face is priceless, I love my monkeys.  

Whoa, Summer

Hey ya'll.  Ya know, you guys are some cools dingleberries. Hangin in there the way you have. I've been thinking about you though!  I'm happy that I am able to follow some of you on the faceybook but for the others ... Makes me a sad.

It's been a good summer. Lots of things and stuff. Pokey has been doing the karate (did I tell you all that?) It seems like forever since I've even logged in, and I guess it has been.

My hair ... well it's still there. I've gone from blond to brown now.  It's not quite my thang, but I'm hanging with it ... for a few weeks.

But things have been things ... I can't believe I've been so outta touch.  I just found myself some time to check in and post a something.  haha..

On another note, I was going through my calendar, trying to see where I can squeeze what ... I've booked my whole September now (well the weekends anyway) Of course the weekdays are for work .... and karate .... and church.  Pokey has also joined the band, I still need to pay her FFA dues ... SHe wants to be in the art club as well as yearbook club ... I don't know how she has time for it all. I wonder if she's been hanging around with me too much?  haha..

I miss you guys, please hang in there. I know I rarely have anything witty or awesome to post .. But I enjoy sharing my little piece of the world with you all and seeing what all is happening in yours as well <3
