It's Friday!  It's time to confess.  Confess of what?  Anything.  Everything.  Nothing.  You decide.  Real or imagined.  Claim it or deny it.  The choice is yours.  It's all in good fun and the best part...we don't judge.



I found a white hair.  In MY head.  A freaking WHITE hair!  To verify it's whiteness, I plucked that bad boy OUT and showed it to my mom who said ineed it was a white hair.  WHITE!  What the heck?

I got my hair cut Wednesday.  Long over due.  But isn't that always the case?  It was a new gal.  She asked me, "Is that your natural color??"  "As close as I can get it." and it has been at least 3 months since I colored it.  She asked me what I used. Hmmm I think I use Miss Clairol...but ooops it's Loreal...cause I'm worth it!  She said it was the best match she has ever seen and she also told me I was a brat.  Hahaha.  My hair is is like three colors...blonde, red, and some light brown.  Mix it in a pot and it turns thi…

I Am Woman!!

My toilet sprung a leak!  I am not a fixit kind of gal.  I can maybe fix basic computer issues on a PC (sorry mac users...YOYO) But to do something that is like...handy...well I am not Rosie!  But I also don't have $55 to fish out so someone can come in and fix it in 5 minutes.  So I was chatting away with my mom telling her that the tank appeared to be leaking from the side.  She said to turn off the water and flush the toilet.  Check.  I couldn't see anything that would indicate a leak, and I don't care if it is the tank water, it is still part of a TOILET! I am not a toilet touchin' gal.

I am getting frustrated by the whole thing!  I can't afford a house call!  So whatever inspired me to do it, I turned the water back on, flushed and watched the tank fill up...
See where it says FILL CUP and FILL TUBE?  Well the fill tube in my tank had disconnected from the fill cup and the water was just shooting across the tank.  So I turned the water off and reconnected the …

The first award I got came from Tennessee Mom at Days on the Creek.   Thank you! Thank you! The Fabulous Sugar Doll Award. As a recipient of this award I must first thank and link back to the giver.  Done.  Then I must reveal 10 things about me....
1.  What can I say, my life is an open book! 2.  My favorite books growing up were:  Charolette's Web & The Outsiders 3.  I also loved Joke Books.  My mom was my captive audience. 4.  I watched The Karate Kid last night 5.  You know, the real one with Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita. 6.  Still loved it. 7.  I still know the dialogue to it.   8.  Wax on, wax off. 9.  I also saw the other two, but I can't remember the dialogue from them. 10.  I know every line of The Wizard of Oz, and The Outsiders.  
Now I have to bestow the Sugar Doll award to some fellow bloggers!  (and notify them too)
1.  Trina from Me So Hongry 2.  Emmy from Emmy Mom--One Day At A Time 3.  Jenny from Denton Sanatorium 4.  Kellie from Hendricks Family 5. Melissa from My Life and …

What Were You Doing?

Ten years ago and the night before, I was sitting in my book club discussing...well...a book!  I don't remember what the book was.  Probably because I was highly uncomfortable, and having Braxton Hicks contractions.  One of the ladies joked asking me if I was going to go into labor.  I think my response was something like, "Pfffft!  No, just practicing."  After all I still had 4 weeks to go.  Around 3 that morning everything was about to change when my water broke.  At first I thought I was peeing the bed.  After all at that point your bladder can hold all of about 1/8 of teaspoon of water and that child was practically between my knees anyway.  When I got on the toilet I realized that nobody pees for that long.  So we took care of our eldest and then headed to the hospital.  Silly doctor thought I wouldn't be ready til lunch.  Yeah, tell that to the nurse who said on the phone, "NO, he needs to be here NOW!"  That was around 10:15AM.  At 10:43AM they hande…
