Every night this week I've said to my self, "Lisa, you're going to bed early!" Do you think I have....no. I sit here at my handy dandy (Blue's Clues is on) laptop, surf the net and watch the clock tick away. It's 9:44 and I told myself that I would be in bed, at least laying there watching tv, and I'm not there.
Laptops are mobile right? Bah! Tomorrow is Friday. J has a doctors appointment at 8:45 so I don't have to get up at 5:30. That right there my friend...is a wonderful thing.
Have a great night
Which really sucks. So much happened over the weekend that I was contemplating calling in to work today to rest from the weekend. Didn't happen. Here I sit, at work, a pile of shit, well work, to be done and I just don't feel like doing it.
My mind is racing 100mph. I drove 100 miles this morning and I know where I went but I couldn't tell you where I went. The blinders were on the entire way. Radio was playing, every song I heard reminded me of something. Whether it was the kids, the ex, my parents...it didn't matter.
I think I'm in need to some retail therapy. Which really sucks because Pres. Douche isn't supposed to get our checks to us until May 9 (and if you dont' know when you're getting yours check the IRS, they have it all planned out). When I do get that check its gone. I have so many unfinished projects and things that need to be done, I won't get any therapy.
Damn...a woman with no therapy but alas...I have Bud Light in the fridge. Okay, all is well now.
On one of Matt's photography forums, he posted a picture of the sunset Tuesday night. Islands in the background, beautiful if I do say so myself. One of the guys came back and said "there's a tree growing in the middle of the water". No dumbass, there's an island out there..see it? That is where the tree grows.
Me and the boys headed to the beach this afternoon. J has been testing the attitude making sure the likes the nasty one, so we had to get out of the house. We head to Caladesi, one of the top beaches rated by Dr. Beach, pop a squat and start enjoying why we live here. Matt wants to go for a walk since he's brought the camera. Okie dokie....lets go. We get half way down the beach and see this. So they really do grow anywhere...who'd a thunk it.
I love to pimp out the oldest...gives me goose bumps and all. Actually this pimping is just for someone to go vote.
As you can see by that ~~> linky over there (240 Photo) and by the slide show down there, my oldest loves to take pictures. Last year, against my greater finaicail budget, I bought him a Canon XTI. He's put it to great use because I would never have the photos that I have now. He's got an amazing eye for photography. Thanks to him, Ms. Shakespeare herself went and start on this photog adventure.
So I stumbled across this site, competico.com. They do fun, weekly and bi-weekly photo contests. I usually don't enter him in all of them but this weeks was the description of every day in my house, "Best Mad Face". If its not coming from Matt himself, its' from J.
So if you could so kindly take two seconds out of your time to vote for him...I'd love you forever. Really, I will. I might even cook you dinner.
Matt's First Vote For Me
and the second Vote For Matt
Just so you know...yes that is the miniest of me screaming his head off.
Right here huh? I guess I'll do a little more about me.
I'm a single, working mom of two perfect angels...and if you believe that, I have an igloo to sell ya' in Arizona. I work full time for a sign company and love my job. They are a family owned business which really helps me when something is wrong with the kids.
My boys are 15 years, 9 months apart. Yeah, I wasn't thinking but I wouldn't give it up for the world.
Okay really...that's enough about me.
Remember when your mother would always tell you that when you have kids, she hopes they are just like you? Yeah, her curse worked on me. My 17 year old is a spitting image of me just in a male form, right down to the attitude. Makes for some fun times, lemme tell ya'. He big into his car, Black Mamba, and loves his photography. Most of the time you see him like this
Behind the camera. He's pretty good, if I say so myself.
And the Mini-Mini-Me
The miniest of me, you'll notice that I love to make up words, is my oops child. With almost 16 years between them, the boys are very much alike. J, as we call him, loves the attention of his brother. He's in daycare full time. Some may scoff at that but I gotta do what I gotta do. He loves it. Gets wonderful attention and is actually learning something. Most of the time you can catch him being goofy or running from his brother who always seems to have the camera in his face. Like this...
So for right now...that's about it. My life is a constant roller coaster so be sure to check back for the life of a single mom.
