I’ll do Thirty Days of Truth at my leisure. hehe.
Day 24 → Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
Beautiful People – Marilyn Manson
We Looked Like Giants – Death Cab For Cutie
Patience – Guns n Roses
Breathing – Lifehouse
Lost In This Moment With You – Big and Rich
First Love Song – Luke Bryan
Everything – Brad Paisley
Kyle, this list is pretty crazy at first glance but so are we. I picked them for their importance in our relationship in the order that they happened. You were listening to Marilyn Manson the first day I hopped into the car with you after work. We Looked Like Giants was absolutely written for me and you when you used to drive for hours up the mountain every single day to see me at college. Patience was for all the times we’d park at the church late at night and just talk over the radio.
Breathing is for the time I spent the night with you and I wrote the lyrics down on a napkin because I was too embarrassed to sing them. Lost In The Moment was our wedding song.
First Love Song is for the day we got baptised together and went to see Luke Bryan with my hair still wet and we danced in the dark like the other thousand or so people weren’t even there. And Everything had just came out when we found out about Kyson and I would cry at the “unborn children’s mother” part everytime we heard it. And I almost cried writing this. I love you!!
Who was your high school Sweet Heart?
I don’t think I really had a sweetheart. Maybe it was B, but it wasn’t always so sweet. I did date a few boys but I never really got serious with anyone but Kyle.
What is your favorite vegetable to eat?
Green beans and taters
Do you plan on dressing up for Halloween, if yes, what do you have in mind?
I hope to dress up but since Kyson’s birthday is right there, it might be hard to get the money up. I’m actually looking at them in another window. Maybe a pirate or a sailor from torrid.com
Are you a reality show junkie? If so, what is your guilty pleasure?
Eh. Not really. I watch Project Runway if that counts. And NICU but that’s it.
What year did you graduate high school?
I just bought another Georgia diaper!! This kid is gonna be ready for football season. This one comes from Squeezie Cheeks and is going to be so cute! It’s black with a big ol’ G on the butt
If you need a diaper made for football season, they’ve got them! NCAA and NFL.
Kyle has another meeting tonight. So I guess I’ll get that taco bell I’ve been wanting all week. And I’ve got to find something to wear for our fire department pictures Sunday. It’s easy to dress the boys but me not so much. These people are notorious for making me look like a beast in our pictures. One year I was behind Kyle and it looked like I was the devil breathing down his neck and they’re like “oh that’s good!” Very disappointing.
Day 23 → Something you wish you had done in your life.
Finished college? I dunno. I can’t think of anything I want to do that I haven’t. Things are pretty cool for me. I wish I had been nicer to some people.
I’ve been doing some blog soul searching today. I have alot of new followers and I wanted to share some things. First, I blog entirely from my cell phone. My computer died at Thanksgiving and it was cheaper to get an iPhone. So yes, I text everything. Which is part of the reason I closed my blogger and got a wordpress. They have an app for blogwriting. Sorry, I like blogger better too but this is more convenient. And before this thirty days of truth popped up and all these blog hops I have been doing, I only wrote a few things a week but it felt more meaningful and not so much about me as it was being a mom. So I wonder if I’ve not found my blog identity yet. I also have another blog that’s about my faith an religious ideas but I don’t share it. But back to the story. I’m not going to call anyone out but I found a blog that seemed similar to mine so I clicked on it and was disappointed to see it covered in nothing but giveaways. And there’s nothing wrong with that! I enter them all the time. It’s just that people get so sucked in that it’s not about the blog anymore. People follow you just to win something and that feels like cheating to me. I don’t add blogs I don’t like. I dunno. It’s just that I started out doing something good for the world and it’s turning into a “me” fest. After this next week things should be back to normal.
Day 22 → Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
I wish I’d never tried some of the things I did. I wish I hadn’t gotten fat in high school. I wish I hadn’t discounted a pack of cigarettes from my grandpas store for someone who wasn’t even really my friend (long story). I wish I hadn’t dropped out of college. I wish I hadn’t settled for Piedmont when my mom said I couldn’t go to GSU because it was a party school. (yet my brother can move to Athens??) Ugh. Now I’m just mad. I can go through lots of things but those things made me who I am. So it’s best to not worry with them.
Day 21 → (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
What would any person do? Forget the fight. And go to that person. Nothing should ever be so bad that you couldn’t forgive them.
*Favorite 80s flick?
I was fresh out the cabbage patch in 86 so I’m not too keen on 80s stuff.
*One genre of music needs to be banned. Which genre?
*All time favorite candy?
Reeses Cup, mmmmmmmm.
*How ‘flawed’ is your driving record?
One failure to stop at a stop sign and about 4 seatbelt violations.
*What was high school mascot?
What color socks are you wearing?
None. Socks are only necessary when shoes are involved. And it’s too hot for that. I’ll be sporting flip flops on into October at least!
I’m bored as all get out today. Just waiting on Kyle to get home. Yuck. Might as well find some linkys…
Me and Kyle spent all weekend cleaning out our back bedroom. You know, the empty one you had hoped would become a guest bedroom but instead you throw all the junk you own into it. We threw away so much stuff. Mostly mine because I’m somewhat of a hoarder. We never technically got moved in since I was pregnant and it was summer so whenever we needed something we’d just go digging through any random box until we made an even bigger mess and then gave up when we couldn’t find it.
I DID find
• A Nintendo 64
• A bunch of old framed art I took when I left my great-grandma’s house. Including one BADASS picture that I would LOVE to know more about.
• My highschool diploma
• Some parts to a Medela pump
• a notebook we used to write notes during class in high school. God we were weird!!
• A dried mouse carcass under the bed. (Thanks alot, Stitches.) My kitties are always bringing me such sweet gifts!
But finally we were done and now Kyson has his very own bedroom and Kyle has a more neatly organized junkhole with a tv so he can play Call of Duty while I watch my “stupid gay vampire show”. “I’m a fairy? How f**king lame.”
So last night Kyson had no problem once he finally got to sleep but me and Kyle did. Kyle more than me I think. It’s past time to move out but I guess it was just hard on us with him being so little and not breathing good and three months turned into ten before we knew it.
I’m not making excuses. I’m not ashamed. There are some people that might say he’s going to be a wuss because he still sleeps with us. Well Kyson has been through more than most babies and he almost never was so we keep him a little closer. But I know that I need to give him space to grow. I’m not stupid. It was just hard for us.
He slept well but I didn’t. I kept looking up at the monitor to make sure it was still working and that he wasn’t crying. And Kyle kept snoring and elbowing me in the ribs. So yeah. But I’m happy now. And I think he likes it in there with all his toys. Now I all I have to do is wait on Fall so I can rip up everything but the bathtub in his bathroom and fix it up. I can’t wait.
It’s raining but we totally need it. I’ve been saying for weeks now that I feel fall coming because the sun is getting lower in the sky. So maybe it will cool down a bit.
Kyle told me he wanted to name a kitten so I told him he could rename Hamlet. The only thing he came up with was Gigglemuffin but we determined that it should be used as Esther’s last name 🙂 So I’m open to suggestions for names for a yellow striped male kitten.
I finally sold my Mustang yesterday. Not nearly for as much as I wanted for it, but at least it’s not my problem any more. And I finally got my shovel and pail decoration but I pulled it out of the mailbox all smashed up because the new mailman is a dickhead. Who tries to cram a sand bucket into a mailbox!!! So I’m now watching Blue’s Clues for ideas and making my awesome crockpot macaroni an cheese. (just holler if you want the recipe!)
Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Drugs. I think drugs are bad but only because they’re illegal. Morally, I see no problem with marijuana but anything that is made in a bath tub with chemicals is wrong. Pot smoking now is like drinking alcohol during Prohibition. It doesn’t work. An it overcrowds our jails. The only reason it is associated with crime is because it’s illegal. If it were made legal, it wouldn’t be such a problem. It’s a plant that is natural. Like tobacco but not near as deadly. So I have no problem with it. And alcohol is good in moderation. Jesus turned water into wine and I don’t want to hear you say it was grape juice cause that’s BS! It was said to be the best wine they served at the wedding so it had to be some goooood stuff. Only when you let alcohol control you or make you drunk enough to do stupid stuff is it wrong.
I sat Kyson down for two seconds this morning and he was already gnawing on a piece of cat food. I think he liked it though, he put up a good fight for it. At least it wasn’t from the litter box.
Fawk you Friday!! My favorite meme. The recipients of my middle finger this week are…
• My memory. I’ve yet again lost a new stick of deodorant. I never finish a stick because I lose it every time or I run out the door with it and leave it in my hot car to melt all over my CDs and my son’s spare pacifier.
• Really big grasshopper locust thingies all over my yard. I shit you not, they are 2-3 inches long and scary. I can see why the plagues were so horrific. I could totally picture people being enveloped in a cloud of these things and eaten alive. Sucks for me, they always pick off the fat ones first.
• My car for eating my key. It has been stuck in the ignition for almost a week now. I haven’t the faintest idea of what would cause it. But it really pisses me off and makes me feel like I’m forgetting something all the time. I guess I should suck it up and take it to a mechanic.
• In laws for not giving me something to fawk about this week. Haha.
30 Days of Truth
Day 19 → What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
I’ve touched on this alot with the 30 days of truth. I believe that the two shouldn’t be mixed. They are so incompatible with each other. So I pick religion over politics. I am well informed with things and I won’t say that I DON’T care, but I don’t let it take over my life. And I think religion is sometimes harmful to what it teaches because it alienates people who aren’t that cookie cutter personification of what it says you should be. One of the leading causes of atheism is Christianity. (I learned that from a DC Talk cd hahaha) I prefer a more organic form of “faith” instead of “religion”. But this is getting too long winded. So quit reading this and go enjoy your Friday!!
