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 this caramel color.  I wanted to bring out the gold.  And still a WHITE one!  Seriously!?  Oh and the hair dresser told me I didn't have THAT many grey hairs.  Ummm thanks?

There is a certain movie I am dying to see.  NO!  That's too obvious.  I saw the official trailer for it on Wednesday.  I got so excited I almost peed!  And then, I think I hyperventilated a little.  Go and see what I am talking about here...since I can't embed it...and if I can, I am not seeing the button.  I can hardly wait!  It was supposed to come out in July, but they post poned it for some strange reason.  Psssh!  Twihards!  I'm kidding.  I am going to be saving my nickles and dimes!  I want to see it in IMAX!  Cause I'm geeky like that!  But I make it look cool.

It's been a slow week.  I don't have much to confess.  I promise to screw up more next week!  What do need to get off your chest?  Share it with Glamazon!

******************************************

Not only is it Two Truths and a lie...it's also Alphabae-Thursday!  And today the letter is X.  Now this an unfair letter!  I suppose I could say xylophone.  How about Xanax!  Now that is a WORD!  Woot!  I am having a party now!  Ahem.  Okay seriously...I chose X-Rays because I have had so many it's a wonder I don't glow in the dark!  I've broken my arms, my leg, toes and fingers.  I can't give it all up here cause that would just spoil fun!

Instead, I am going to tell you that when my sister and I were young we fought. Physically.  I mean we yelled and stuff, but we were also physical.  Now I am not talking about girlie b*tch slappin stuff, no we were more hard core.  We punched, kicked, shoved and yeah I am sure we scratched too.  It's a wonder we didn't hospitalize each other.  Oh but we did send each other to the ER more than once.  Now comes the truths and lie part.  Two are true, one is false.  Each one requires an X-ray...ready... here goes...

1.  My sister once broke my pinky finger
2.  I once broke my sister's nose
3.  My sister broke her toe kicking me.

Come back NEXT WEEK for a new Letter and the answers.

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 fill tube and POOF Viola! My tank did not leak anymore!  Thank you, thank you!

It's amazing what we can do.  Have you ever amazed yourself?

Baby you're going places, award.

As a recipient of this award, I must thank and link back to the person who gave it to me.  Done.  Then describe where I will be in ten years...haha um ok... let's see...

My guess is I will still be here in CA.  I really love it, plus I am committed for 40 years to this house.  Sounds like a sentence!  Let's see my son will be 15 and wanting to drive.  My daughters will be 20 and 23.  Scary.  I will not discuss my own age.  I hope to be wiser, healthy, and maybe less in debt than I am now.  And now to pass it on....

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 handed her to me, but she was purple and not breathing.  The quickly whisked her away and worked quietly but quickly.  We held our breath til she took hers.
