Woohoo! Just ONE more day of school and this semester is maybe I can take a deep breath and relax. Work is still going alright.....they sure don't prepare you for real life in school, though. LOL

It has been cold and gloomy here. How is your weather? I have only got at most three presents bought for Christmas,.....I better get on the ball or the grandkids will not be happy with Wundermama.

Ok, now on to a little more serious conversation. The other day, Tuesday, when I had to go to work and it was so cold and gloomy, the only thing I could think about was getting in my NEW car (yes, I got a new car and I love it)!, anyways I just wanted to throw my computer, shoes, purses, and don't forget, clothes in the car and just drive till I found some sunshine and warmer temps. Hey, I am making sure to take the important stuff with me. Every girl needs her purses, shoes, and computer, and alright a few clothes! haha Wouldn't that be an awesome experience? Just driving till you found some place to settle, and no one knows you? Sounds pretty good to me at the moment! One day I won't be able to stop the impulse and will probably do just that.....but not today. *sigh*

How are YOU doing? Have you got all your Christmas shopping done? I want to take this moment to wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS....let's not forget the reason for the season. Tootle loo till next time.

Yes, I'm still alive.....I think

I am still here (if anyone cares) ha!
I am working, I got my first paycheck last week, and I was sooooo happy to see it. It's been over TWO years since I got a paycheck that I actually earned! Unemployment is not earned (at least in my mind for me), and it's really no fun fighting for it either:)
Still going to school too, with no end in sight for at least another year or so.
Bigblock hit an 8-point buck last week with his truck. He's not hurt, but the same can't be said for his truck. Over $5,000 damage, thank goodness for insurance!

So, how is your week/month/day going? I'd love to hear from anyone.
Anyone still out there?

Scared Silly

Hello everyone out there in bloggy land. How is your week going?

So, what's the title about? Well, today I went and took my NCLEX-PN exam. I don't feel like I did so well...and I am the kind to worry if there's nothing to worry about....really need to get that under control! Now I wait...and wait...and wait, for the results. And, I want to add..if I passed then I owe it all to GOD, because I've really been bothering HIM lately. Please, if you have a mind to..would you please say a prayer for me too? I'll let you know the results when I get them.

I'm off to bed, all this worrying is tiring!


I PASSED!!! Thanks for your prayers and Thank you GOD!!

I Found You...

Now don't get scared, I'm not a crazed stalker or anything. But, today while on KellysKorner I found someone that lives in the next town to me. How cool is that?

I have been incredibly busy lately. Like who hasn't right? But I still get around and see what everyone is up to these days. I hope to have more time to blog by the end of the month. I just love hearing about and meeting new friends over the net.

We are getting cooler temps during the day here. Autumn is my favorite time of the year, though technically it's not here yet it feels like it. Didn't seem like we had much of a Summer though, did it? Oh well, maybe we won't have much of a winter either (keeps fingers crossed)!

Have a great and SAFE holiday weekend!

Today I volunteered at the community hospital, it's been a year since they moved into their new digs. I had a BALL! Yes, it was fast-paced, and yes I am so tired that it hurts to think, but it was a very rewarding day.

Next week I start volunteering at a county health office. It is free to people of that community that lack insurance. The patients can receive their medications and office visits totally free. They also have a dentist that comes in for cleanings and extractions. Considering the financial status many people are in today, this is a great service for the community.

The last few years I have wanted to find places to volunteer my services, and I think the good feeling I get from assisting others is just what I need at this time in my life. If you have volunteered please share your experiences I would love to hear your opinions.

Garage Sales

I am writing this as I relax on my couch...My sis (the oldest) and I had a garage sale yesterday and was a town wide sale...probably less than 1000 people in my little kicked our arse....garage sales are WORK!!! Started each day around 7 a.m. and didn't end till about 5 p.m., so a total of approximately 10 hours EACH day...raked in a total of $28.00 the first day....even less the second....everyone wants you to give them your stuff....and guess what? I did give it away the second day....from now on, I am GOING to the sales NOT having them!!Ha

I am loving this weather we're having nice and warm with nary a cloud in the sky...ah Summertime, where have you been?

ATT and a break

Today I am cleaning out my closet for a garage sale tomorrow....I like going to them not having them, but when stuff is pouring out of your's time!

I have been out of school for almost exactly 2 weeks now. Monday I paid the fees to be able to sit for my NCLEX-PN exam. I got the Authorization To Test today....I'm panicking again today. I have been studying, but it doesn't seem like I learned enough in school. Talked to a friend...she feels the same way...what the heck?

So what is going on in your world today? I hope you're having a great summer even though we really haven't had the weather for it.

I'n NOT gonna do it......

Thing 2 bought a stereo a while back. Wants to sell it now. For not even HALF what he paid for it. What does he want to buy? A piston or some such nonsense for a four-wheeler. So what's my problem with that? He wants ME to buy the piston off ebay for him with MY credit card.

Ummm, no, not gonna happen!! As you know I have been going to school. I receive unemployment while I go to school as long as I have good grades and actually go every day. I know, sweet!! But, thing is, unemployment is always messed up. This time I haven't been paid in 3 weeks!! So, no, not gonna do it.....

Live with it Thing 2, Oh and by the way, GET A JOB!!!!

A Day Just Like Another....

Today on my way to school I was looking at the clouds and sky and thought to myself how pretty it is and how I am enjoying the nice (hot) weather.

I remember having these same thoughts on another morning, but I was going to work. It was August 4,1989. The most important woman in the world to me died that day. My Mom. I thought about stopping and seeing her, it was right on the way. I didn't. I was taking half the day off to spend with her. Got the call at work, too late. I will regret not stopping for the rest of my life.

Have you heard the news? Farrah Fawcett died. Like her or not, she was a very important woman of her time. I can remember wanting to grow up and be like her. And who didn't want that hair? I watched the TV special that was on recently about her and I really hoped that she would beat the cancer. It just wasn't to be. My prayers go out to her son, Redmond. I hope that he gets his life on track again. He will never have the love like he had from Farrah. Nothing can replace a Mother's love.

So long Angel............

It's Not Her Job

Talking to Boy C (youngest grandchild) this weekend about school and I asked him how he liked his teacher. Replied that she is "okay, but she yells alot". "Why does she yell?" Boy C then replied, "because I'm doing something I shouldn't". Well okay, Wundermamaw then replies, "So she's trying to make you a better person. You shouldn't get upset, because she's trying to help you avoid trouble later on". "But it's Not Her Job", Boy C says (more like yells)!! Ok then, on to something else, cause I'm never going to win this one!

Hope you're having/had a great weekend. Guess what? We finally have summer type weather here! I am in my glory;)

Quizzes and Quilts, Oh My....

Just wanted to let everyone know that no one has been killed at my house. I have just been incredibly busy with school. Although, it is still not going great here. Lots of things I need to think about, and maybe some tough decisions to make.

In other news, it has been cold here! Today it has rained all day and the temp sits at 64 degrees Brrrr....would someone please tell the weatherman or whoever, that it is indeed June and it's time to start acting like it!! I had to put the quilt back on the bed the other night, that is just NOT right!

Ok, that's all I've got for tonight. How is the weather where you are? Please if you have a mind to pray for me....that I reach decisions that are satisfying...I'm not really comfortable putting alot of personal stuff on here, but I could use all the help I can get right now:)

Dear Bigblock,

I know how you like to give orders, but do NOT stand in the doorway to the bedroom when I am trying to sleep and shout orders at me. At that moment I don't care who you want to do what, or anything else you want done. I am NOT one of your flunky's from work, and I don't have to follow your damn orders!

As you know, I have not been sleeping well for the better part of the last two years, and when you shout orders at me the only thing it accomplishes is to piss me off, and have steam rolling out my ears! Heed this warning, because I really don't think you want to face the consequences the next time if you don't!

The wife,

Armed and Dangerous

Bigblock is out of town. Guess what happens EVERY time Bigblock is not available? I either have car trouble, household problems, or when Thing 1 and 2 were little there was always a medical emergency! What is the problem this time you ask?

Last night, or really this morning about 1 a.m., I am sitting on the couch relaxing and surfing the web. When all of a sudden I hear a loud noise coming from the sliding door in the dining room. I freeze. What is it? I'm thinking is it Thing 2 out there trying to scare me? Is someone trying to break in? That would be stupid, because they can see the lights still on and see me from the door. I don't have my phone because Thing 2 likes to think it's his property and took it to the neighbor's with him. So, I get off the couch and notice that the sliding door is not shut all the way and the lock is not engaged. I scramble to slam the door shut and push the lock home. When I look outside and see..........a damn RACCOON on the SIDE of the house. We live in a log sided home. That sucker is right below a flood light (I thought they didn't like lights!) and just inches from the door. And he just freezes and looks at me too. Oh shit, so I start banging on the glass door and tell him to shoo! He retreats off the deck. Ok, now I can breathe, breathe Wunderwoman...

Now I'm scared to go to the neighbors to get Thing 2 because we have a large yard and it's not well lit. So I'm freaking out. Where the hells the gun? Why does Bigblock have to hide it from me? Why did I never get anyone to show me how to fire a darn gun? I wait and calm down, then I race over to the neighbors and scare the beejeeses out of them! Ha! Thing 2 and neighbor boy come and check the house and surrounding yard out for me, coon is gone. Whew! But I've got my phone back! So I call Bigblock, yes it's almost 2 a.m. now but I don't care. He doesn't answer. Probably knows it's bad if I'm calling at that time. I leave a message! Call me back, where is the gun? Why did you have to take this stupid trip now??? I finally go to bed a little after 2 and sleep surprisingly well. go figure.

This morning I call my Brother #3 (Remember I have 4) and tell him, you have to teach me to shoot a gun! He agrees and off I go. I'm gonna need practice! In the meantime I have talked to Bigblock and I know where the gun is and will be ready tonight. Oh, and Thing 2 will be control of the weapon, because I really, really need practice. LOL

Now, I want to inform everyone that I did do research and it is legal to exterminate raccoons if they are doing damage. They will rip off shingles to get into your attic!! However, I also read that they hate the smell of ammonia, so I will also put some rags soaked in an ammonia solution out there tonight. But, if that doesn't take care of it, who wants coon stew? Please say a prayer for me and the coon!

Cookie Floozy

I was reading a friends blog today and she called herself a cookie floozy, and it hit me I am too! I love cookies!! Proof: today while out shopping I stopped at Subway and just bought cookies. Have you ever had their cookies? They are fabulous! I'm pretty picky about my cookies too. They have to be chewy I don't want them hard. Oh my gosh, that sounds bad doesn't it? Ok, wunderwoman get your mind out of the gutter, we're talking COOKIES here LOL! My favorites are white macadamia nut and frosted sugar cookies, but in a pinch any will do..Oh my gosh, I was just proofreading this and realized I typed "in a inch any will do" what is wrong with me today? ROFLMAO

What are you favorite cookies? where do you buy them? or do you bake them yourself? If you're not a cookie floozy please tell what your weakness is;)

Cookie floozy signing out now,

New header

As you can see, I have a new header. I designed it at scrapblog, and it's not quite like I want, but I feel excited to finally get it on here. The pictures are not of good quality, and I will be working on it more.

In other news, it is raining here today. I really don't mind it, because I know sunny days are ahead. And the big news is I GET TO GO SEE MY GRANDCHILDREN!! Sorry for shouting but I am happy, can you tell LOL

How is your week going? Please pray for Emily. She just delivered a beautiful baby girl after losing her husband earlier this year. What a courageous woman!

No Name Post (because I couldn't think of one)

As you can see I am trying to update my blog. So tired of the old. Hopefully while I am out of school for TWO whole weeks I can get it finished! If anyone knows of someone willing to teach me to use paint shop pro for making headers, please send them my way, or leave info here for me to get ahold of them. I don't have alot of time when I return back to school, so can't join a group right now:(

Now I need your opinion. I ran into a woman that I used to work with. She is going to school also, albeit not the one I attend. I was meeting a guy that went to school with me, I loaned him materials to study for an upcoming licensure exam. Before he arrived she asked if I was sure I wanted to loan out my materials, because she had previously and had a difficult time getting hers returned. I stated that I trusted him and didn't have a problem. Well then, in walks my guy friend. Goodness, I thought my woman friend was going to slip to the floor when she saw him. He is good looking (think Patrick Swayze before he got sick). After she had seen him, she changed her tune all together, wonder why? LOL

For some background on her, and why I need your opinion. She formerly worked with me as I stated above. She was married and had small children when I first met her. She had been having an affair with a co-worker for probably 5 to 6 years before I met her now it's been going on for probably 19+ years. This continued for alooooong time, the co-worker and her eventually broke up and she stayed married, but later started the affair back up again, if it ever ended. Oh, and the co-worker she is fooling around with is approximately 20 years her senior, and every time I see him I go ewwwww gag barf ewwwww! I may be wrong, but I think the main attraction there was that he had won the lottery to the tune of $100,000. So, eventually she divorces husband. Goes on cruises with boyfriend, tells his daughter not to look forward to inheritance cause there won't be one, she's helping him spend his money. She still has boyfriend, but now he spends the winter in the sunny south while she goes to school here. Oh, and said ex-husband kills self by drinking antifreeze.

After seeing my schoolmate she tells me that boyfriend and her will eventually break up, as she wants someone more her age (I wonder is he running out of money?) She wants to know all about guy friend. Guy friend wants to know her history. I don't want to say anything bad about her, but she is the kind I wouldn't turn my back on. She is an IT (it's all about me, me, me) girl. He has children (he has custody), she doesn't want the hassle, and let's face it, ex-husband raised hers while she was with boyfriend. She is the kind of woman that if you can be of use to her, she is good with that, if not she doesn't know you exist. I'm sure we all know one?

How would you handle this? And what do you think of this kind of woman? Tell me your experiences.

Bookclub Review

It's that time of month again, NO, I'm not talking about THAT time of month. I mean it's time to post a bookclub review. LOL

My book this month is How Starbucks Saved My Life by Michael Gates Gill. Actually, I read this book on the recommendation of my sister, she had already read it and liked it alot. Michael Gates Gill is in his fifties when he loses his job, his marriage, and is diagnosed with a brain tumor. He goes from a six-figure salary and an Ivy League education to scrubbing toilets in Starbucks, and is glad to do it! He learns what it really means to respect another as well as humility and the value of hard work.

If you haven't already read this book, then I heartily recommend it. See you next month.

John Deere and a story

John Deere Mom is having a giveaway on her site, a new little remote control gator. Go ahead and check it out, I'll wait.

Back now, Ok, I was talking to my Lil Sis on the phone(she went through 2 phones, they kept going dead, that hasn't happened in a while) last night and she told me a story about our Big Sis. You know I am one of nine children right? Well I am, there are 4 boys and 5 girls. Growing up it wasn't unusual for Big Sis to get mad at us, and she was lethal with whatever was handy. I can't tell you how many times she would throw a hot cup of coffee or an ashtray at us. The rest of us just knew how Big Sis was, so we just tried to stay on her good side and not make waves. However, we all hated her little tantrums.

So the story goes that Big Sis was riding in the car with her younger daughter, and she was complaining about her driving. This is the funny part, because younger daughter stopped the car and put Big Sis out! Oh my gosh, that has never happened before. Keep in mind that Big Sis has a boyfriend (father to 28 yr old oldest daughter) and he's a real jerk. Keeps stringing Big Sis along. Takes her for what she will give him...I can not figure this out, she can do SO MUCH better. Anyways, after younger daughter puts dear ol' mom out, she calls worthless boyfriend and warns him she put mom out and she will be in a killing mood. Worthless boyfriend waits about 5 minutes and doesn't hear anything from Big Sis (mom) so he goes to find her. Finds her walking home, still complaining. She had been complaining to him earlier how tired she was. So, he says, "well you're alright and you don't seem tired" and he leaves her by the side of the road too. Can you imagine her face, can you? Oh my gosh I am cracking up thinking about it!!

I would love to call her and ask about the walk home, but I don't really think that's a good idea. I love it when people get just what they deserve, don't you?

All I keep thinking is of Big Sis standing by the side of the road watching younger daughter and worthless boyfriend driving away ROFLMAO can you just picture the smoke rolling out of her ears LOL

Disclaimer: we live in a really small town and she was in no danger....probably had oodles of people she knew stopping to ask if she needed a ride LOL

Slick Vodka

I am left wondering what happened this week? Slick Sumbich came back after being gone for a LOOOOOng time, and now Vodka Mom has left us. Was it something we said? something we didn't say? just the gravitational pull of the planets? what happened? By the way, Slick I am soooo glad you're back, we missed you man:)

In other news, it is WARM here, currently 70 degrees. I am in heaven! I have TWO, count 'em TWO weeks of school left. That breaks down to one more weekly test and two finals ugh.

Oh and Kelly is taking a break too. I ask you again, what is happening? I guess all that is left is to pray that our friends stick around for awhile (Slick), and Kelly and Vodka Mom return soon.

Have a great weekend. I'll be studying.

Tuesday, April 21, 2009


Just wanted to say "Thank you" for all who commented on my last post! I cannot thank you guys enough. What would we do without our cyber buddies? I don't ever want to find out! So once again THANKS!

Friday, April 17, 2009


Second post for the day are you impressed?
The reason I am posting again today is because something is really bothering me. Yesterday I did something totally without thinking, and now I am totally obsessing about it. I should tell you that I usually make a mountain out of a molehill, I worry if there's nothing to worry about, I wait for the other shoe to drop almost continually. Can you do all this and still be optimistic? Somehow I manage it.

Have you ever done something totally without thinking? Every time I do this I think when are you going to grow-up and start acting like an adult, and think before you react? I am sure my gut has about 500 ulcers in it just because of my stupidity. Yes, I get an upset nervous stomach, can't sleep, and am just miserable. I also realize that I am generally harder on myself than anyone else could ever be, that's a remnant from my childhood.

So my question(s) for you is how do you let go of stupid mistakes? how do you stop repeating them? how do you accept that you're not above making mistakes and everyone will sometimes feel this way too? Help me out here people:D

Flower Mound, Texas

I've got a question for everyone. Do you look at your map to see where people are that visit your site? I occasionally do, and want to look more. Tonight I took a look and found Flower Mound, Texas. I want to find out more about the great U.S. of A., so in doing this I plan on visiting the websites for hometowns of visitors. Now mind you, I will look at other places other than America, but really can you name any more beautiful and varied place than where we all live?

A little info about Flower Mound:
"Ten minutes from anywhere in the world"
Population consists of 62,450 of which the largest age group is the 35-44 year old range
Incorporated in 1961 (still a young city)
Ranked as one of the safest communities in Texas
Now we're getting to the good part, 232 days clear or partly cloudy skies AND average snowfall of 2.7 inches a year (yeah baby now we're talking)
Average temp is 75.8F

I am sure with my little visit that I didn't get all the info, but I did see some pretty scenery and learned a little. Just what I got on the internet for!

Goodnight all have a great week;)

Edited: for comparison, my hometown July 2007 population: 947

Last night Bigblock and I were watching Overhaulin and this guy was actually kissing his car, and he was leaning into it and everything, Bigblock says this is a man thing.

Now a little background here, this week has seen a dear family friend pass away. B used to watch my children, and kept them from the time they were small babies until they were in school full time. So, as often happens, we have been talking about arrangements for ourselves, or what we intend to do if the other passes before ourselves. I know, I know, you're thinking how does this tie into Overhaulin, well I'm getting there.

Bigblock has had several cars in his lifetime. The only one he has hung onto though still sits in the garage. It's his pride and joy. I think he would get rid of me before that car, well he has had it longer LOL. It doesn't like me. Alot of his cars have been like that. For instance, when there was a place I needed to go, and this was the only way I had to get there, it popped and cracked on me ALL the way. When I find a key that fits and will start it only to find out it's the WRONG key and now won't shut the car OFF now dammit, I think it is secretly laughing at me. This is the car that I don't dare leave a scratch on. It's also the car Bigblock knows I have a tough time shifting, oh yeah baby it's a standard, and it takes BOTH hands to grab the gear shift and woman handle it into gear, he won't fix it because he doesn't want me to drive the stupid car. It's a car meant to be handled rough. But not by anyone but Bigblock.

So what kind of car is it? It's a 1965 Chevelle with a 454 BIGBLOCk engine, some kind of special headers and mufflers (whatever) oh yeah baby it will go. Every time we see Overhaulin on TV, Bigblock mentions that he would love to have this car overhauled.

So what does this have to do with funeral arrangements you want to know? Well, I have told Bigblock for years that if he dies before me, he will be taking that darn car with him. I have plans. I will take that stupid car to the crusher! Yes, I will have it crushed and I intend to make sure it is as small a package as I can get, and it will be thrown on his chest. Take that Bigblock!! He loves it, he should take it with him! Thing 1 and 2 are in disagreement. They both think they should get this car. So what's a girl to do, but send it with Bigblock? Ahhh true love............

Wednesday, March 25, 2009


Why yes, my lovelies I am still here. If you haven't read Chef E's post today, you really must. And go read twentyfouratheart too. Those girls crack me up!!

I talked to Thing 1 today! He says Boy C is very mean haha Karma is a uhmmm...Witch (yeah that's what I want to say)....Thing 1 put me through Hell now Boy C is repaying him for me (I love grandkids)

Saw Thing 2 also today....he's doing ok. He has this awesome girlfriend, she calls just to talk to ME....tells me about going shopping and what she buys..*sigh* if he doesn't marry this one, do you think I can adopt her? LOL

So, how is your week going? Seems like everyone is slacking off (INCLUDING me) updating their blog, did you notice that or is just me? It's getting late and this girl has been tired this week, so off to bed with me...have a good week..see ya;)

I usually try to keep this a happy place to visit. But, sometimes it's just really hard to find anything to be happy about.
For instance, Bigblock and I had a disagreement last night. So what does he do? He goes in the bedroom shutting both doors, like he is locking me out. What the hell? Man Up Dude and quit acting like a child!! Does your significant other do this too? Or is it just mine?

Tomorrow it's back to school for me;(

Have you heard.....

about this guy? He is Paul Levy, and he has asked his employees to come together and find ways so that no one gets laid off! He works for Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital (actually he is the CEO). From reports I read, he is getting 100 emails an hour with suggestions! Now if all American companies would consider something like this, we may all be able to see light at the end of the tunnel.

Ahhh...Spring Break

This week I am on spring break. So what have I been up to so far? Yesterday I went to Unemployment office to check in since I haven't heard/seen anyone and wanted to advise them one of my papers would be late. Did some grocery shopping at WalMart, I really wish another store would come to town and give them a run for their money, I HATE shopping there knowing how they treat their employees, and wouldn't Sam be rolling in his grave to see all the crap from overseas they sell (I believe that was his main pitch, MADE in AMERICA)! However, they are cheapest and in this economy that has to factor in, but I do shop at other stores when I can:) Oh, and I have been catching up on reading, something I can't do without, but has to take a back seat to school work. I am visiting my favorite bloggers and usually follow links to sites they recommend.

Today I could hear the rain beating against the house before I even got out of bed. I know we will probably be grateful for the rain later when it doesn't seem like we can do a rain dance to get any, but I would soooo enjoy one day without it. Can you remember walking in the rain when you were younger? I can, when did I become too old to stop?

On a brighter note, the hubby is still working, don't know how long but we'll take everyday we can. Bigblock and I get our hair cut tomorrow! Yeah, I need some color;) Thing 2 is back home, after being gone working. Heard from Thing 1 a couple of days ago, they are doing well. Gotta run to the store again, I have been craving meatballs and knew I saw a recipe somewhere, so searched and found it at Words of Wisdom from a Smartmouth Broad , Thank you!

I'll be seeing you around, I have an idea for some posts, I'll get back to you with more on that. Have a GREAT day/week...........

I know, I promised you a funny story and didn't get it posted like I thought I would last weekend. I've been know, those darn things called Finals!

So, it's early in the morning, and I'm bee bopping my way to school. No traffic behind me and I'm going at a pretty good clip, who goes the speed limit? Not me...

I see this car, it's a new red Thunderbird, you know they're supposed to look like the old cars? Well, I have this feeling he's gonna pull out in front of me, and that's just not right, I don't want to put on the brakes this morning. I'm saying "Don't do it, Don't do it, there's nothing behind me, don't do it" He does it...

I get up behind him, I've had to use the brakes...damn it...he goes the speed limit...that's just wrong....I think maybe he'll just keep going and not turn on the speedway..uhmm 4 lane road...he turns.

Well Wunderwoman does not like to follow anyone, especially old men in red I pull out to pass him and when I get up beside him I turn my head and yell "you're a dumbass, and you drive an ugly car" remember the windows are up, it's cold out. His head whips around, and I mean WHIPS, and he looks at me, by now I'm looking straight ahead again..I know he knows I'm yelling at him. I seriously thought he would injure himself with that head movement.

Now everything is good again. Dumba$$ is behind me, nothing but clean sailing to school. he comes again.. this time on the left side...I'm still upset. So, I start yelling at him again "You're a dumbass and you're car is UGLY." Again, he WHIPS that head to look at me, but now I'm looking straight ahead, again. I just know he knows I'm yelling at him, but he can't really catch me at it. Poor guy probably thought what kind of nutcase is this woman?

He turns off the road and I continue...takes me about an hour to get to school. I keep thinking about it all the way, and now I'm laughing. I mean seriously laughing my butt off..can anyone say roadrage?

Oh HELL....

Bigblock and I went out to eat tonight and then made a quick trip to WalMart. We finally make it home, and once again, I don't have my house keys. He comes to the door and I hold the screen door open while he unlocks the house door. Oh, I also grabbed me a handful of hot butt hehe.....

We finally get in the house and he's mumbling something that I can't hear. I put the groceries away and I'm still saying, "what did you say?" We're not exactly quiet around here..but we don't have any close neighbors.....
Bigblock says, "I didn't say anything."
Wunderwoman: "yes, you did, what did you say?"
Bigblock: "I said you were a sex maniac"
Wunderwoman: "Well hell, you've been yelling for years I don't put out enough and now that I want to, you call me a sex maniac!" "Fine that's it I'm done."
Bigblock: "No, no I like it."

I finish putting the groceries away while Bigblock goes into the bedroom to turn the TV on. I hear someone coming into the kitchen and turn around and .....

Oh Hell, it's Thing 2, he heard the whole thing....

Your rainbow is shaded brown and orange.


What is says about you: You are a deep thinking person. You appreciate a challenge. You feel closer to people when you understand their imperfections. Others are amazed at how you don't give up.

Find the colors of your rainbow at

So what color is your rainbow? Oh by the way, found this at Debra's blog.

Hope you're having a good week

I've got a funny story to tell you, I'll try to get it posted this weekend.

I'll be seeing you around,

Today is my anniversary, no not wedding, it's been 2 years since I worked at the factory. Yes, I still miss seeing the people because let's face it, you usually spend more time with coworkers than your own family. I used to work 12 hours a day through the week and generally 6 on Saturday and 4.5 on Sunday. Today that would kill me. LOL

I always wanted to go to school and am grateful that I got the chance, but sometimes it's not exactly what I pictured.

I know I've been missing in action a lot lately, and I will try to get better, but life has a funny way of interfering with good intentions.

So, how is your life? Is it all you expected it would be? If you could change anything what would it be?

I'll be seeing you around,

Random ruminations

Just wanted to drop in, say Hi! How are you doing? I'm busy, how 'bout yourself?

On a good note, well not to some but to me, I hear the skunks are out and about. I hear you asking, why is this something you're happy about? It's a sign that spring is on it's way here!! See, I believe they hibernate so when they start coming out, spring can't be too far away. What signs of spring do you look for each year? I don't know about yourself, but this winter seemed to last for.ever....

Looking out my front door I see a house that has been abandoned, and another right next to me. I hope the economy gets back on track soon and I get some decent neighbors. Do you have homes that are casualties of the times near you too? President Obama is signing the stimulus package tomorrow, I pray it helps;)

Oh, I have a question....does anyone know of a site to teach how to write in code? Such as for making the buttons on the sidebars? I really want to get involved in this,goodness I really need about 27 hours to a day LOL

I'll be seeing you around,

Before I start, I want to tell everyone I didn't do this deliberately. And please don't do as I've done (not done) whatever....

Now, for what I've done, might be better to say what I HAVEN'T done. I came home from doing a little shopping today and as usual Thing 2 was on the computer. He asked what all I brought home and I told him, then I said, "I brought something special! I brought home DILLY BARS!!!" Thing 2 says what is a "dilly bar?" Oh my goodness, can you believe I've let him get grown on me and never fed him a dilly bar? That is just unAmerican!!

So he goes and gets them out of the freezer,then wants to know why they are different colors! I've ruined my son's life!! I had them put together a mixed box for me, can you believe they don't have them already packaged? I got 3 chocolate, 2 butterscotch, and 1 cherry. Can you remember eating these as a kid? I can and isn't it just amazing that it takes you right back to feeling like a kid when you eat something from that era?

So what have you been delinquent in sharing with your kids that you used to eat as a child?

Book Review

Welcome!! This is the day you've been waiting for, oh you say you haven't, well just wait a minute and you might. Barrie and a whole slew of us have started doing book reviews. So, every first Wednesday of the month you'll find recommendations for must read books. Without further ado, get yourself a nice cup of joe and a comfortable seat and enjoy!!

I am reviewing Johnny Angel by Danielle Steel. I realize this is one of her old books, but think of something that has stood the test of time, and this book should be on your list, it is mine. It's the story of a mother's worst nightmare, one of her children dying. Johnny is just seventeen and a star athlete and valedictorian. All of this is taken away on prom night and a grief stricken family is forced to carry on. But a wondrous thing happens, Johnny suddenly appears to the two people that need him most, leading them and others out of their grief. This is a story of loving and letting go, hope and second chances. I hope you will take a few minutes to read this book I don't think you'll be disappointed. Warning though, have tissues nearby.

That's the end of my review, now go check out the others! I know you'll find one or two or maybe more you want to read. I'll see you next month with a new review, but I'll be seeing you before that here so stop back again to find out what's going on.

I pretty much have nothing tonight. It has just been a crazy, busy week. I have sort of, kinda, kept up with everyone else this week.

I will be reviewing a book on Wednesday of this week. Barrie thanks so much for inviting me!!

I have been thinking of something lately. I want to know how everyone came up with their names for their blog. I'll start. I was called Wunderwoman almost all the way through school. I HATED being called that. It wasn't a fond nickname. No, the ones that called me that were taunting me. So when it came time for me to name my blog, well I picked that name and it's almost like I'm showing them now. Does that make sense? I haven't ever attended any high school reunions, because of those people. I like to think I am over all that, and I am a better person for now turning it around into a good thing. Kids can be so cruel can't they? So how did you get your name?

I've never had my very own garage to park in, Bigblock has had a garage that he keeps his precious car in(more on that later), but mine has always sat outside. Until this week. It has been very cold here. So, I have been parking my car in Bigblocks garage. He said he told me years ago I could, but I don't remember. Plus I've had issues with my car lately. Last spring the head gasket blew. Then in the fall the heater core broke, leaving me stranded for around 3 hours waiting for Bigblock to come save me. Today when I turn the key it sounds like it's ready to shoot for outer space. Seriously, it went vrrrrrmmmmmm. I had to navigate through the big city praying the brakes would keep me from running over anything or getting a ticket. Oh, and last but not least, one of my tires has been leaking too. Off tomorrow to buy another tire, darn there goes more money.

So today when I get home I think Okay, you didn't like being babied and getting to stay in the warm garage, I'll leave you sit in the snow, you b*tch. Really I wanted to kick it, but with my luck I figured I would just break something. Now keep in mind I love my car, but I've just about. Had. Enough!! My car is ten years old, but it's the first car I've really loved. But, when I have to be extra careful not to run over the semis, that drive like a bat out of h*ll, that's when I start to get just a little testy.

Not to worry though, Bigblock came home and put the wench in the garage again. Oh, and I've had the flu or something this week. So how is your week going?

Hey!! You, yeah You, come back here.......

Hey!! You, yeah, YOU, come back here I want to talk to you. Have you noticed that little map down in the right hand bottom of my page? Well, let me tell you, people from Australia and the Philippines have visited my blog! Only thing is, they don't leave a comment, they just lurk and leave. People talk to me!! I know that most everyone that blogs has a better looking map than I do, but that's okay I'm still a young blogger (notice I said blogger, not woman).

Anyways, what I'm getting at is, I am bored out of my mind. Yes, I've got things to do but, I really don't want to read anymore medical books eck, gag, spew... I visit my favorite blogs such as Chef E who posted about a friend losing a child (so so sad), to Suzanne who is visiting her family, to John Deere Mom dealing with sick children, on to MidlifeMama telling about her Dad and his Caddy. And I don't know why I am having trouble linking tonight arrrgh......FINALLY, it worked.. Okay, one more and them I'm moving on, you need to go see Debra she's fast becoming a favorite..... Can anyone say cabin fever?

Lastly, I just want to say, if you land here please leave a note and tell me what you're up to. I would love to hear from you. Tell me about a good movie to go see, a good book to read, what's going on where you're at, anything but playing in the snow!! I'd love to hear about your favorite piece of make-up, your favorite recipe I should try anything, just talk to me;)
