Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

New Year Meme

Borrowed from Vixen . . .

1) Where did you begin 2007?

You know, I'm not exactly sure. No, I wasn't THAT drunk. It's just that I don't recall for sure if December 31 2006 to January 1 2007 was spent at my house or my parents. After a while, all the B-O-R-I-N-G NYEs with Spousehole blend together. The closest we ever go to going out on NYE is maybe going to dinner. There's a high-priced Japanese place we went several years in row while my parents watched the child(ren), then returned to my parents' house and played games or something. I think we were at my parents' last year, because I think that was when we taught my nephew to play Uno.

2) What was your status by Valentine’s Day?

Unhappily married, but still faithful. And Spousehole got me a gift!

3) How did you earn your money?

Money? What's that?

4) Did you have to go to the hospital?

Not for me, but Girl was in the ER for a fall from a shopping cart onto the concrete floor at Meijer (she was fine). Boy was in the hospital in September because he was dehydrated from barfing for weeks on end.

5) Did you have any encounters with the police?


Oh, did you want an explanation?

Nothing major, actually. My neighbor's house was broken into (they took his good bicycle - he doesn't drive, his digital camera with pictures from 5 weeks in France this summer that he never downloaded, and his good -$2800- guitar. They left his other guitars and bicycles that weren't worth as much. I still suspect friends of his college-age daughter) and we talked with the cops about that. Then we called the cops when a guy was lurking around the same neighbor's house and then claimed to Spousehole that the neighbor hired him to trim the bushes. At 9:30 at night. (The neighbor didn't hire anyone.) Then last month a guy with a crowbar was on our front porch, seemingly trying to decide whether to break the window or a pane on the door to get in. Spousehole called the police after very loudly announcing that he was calling the police. The guy took off running down the street and around the corner. So we had to deal with the police for that.

Plus Spousehole programs the computers and dispatch system for the police and fire departments in our city, so he deals with cops all the time.

6) Where did you go on holiday/travel?

You mean like a vacation? Hahahahahahahaha. That's a good one. LOL

No damn where, really. We went to Boyne Mountain in January for a weekend with a group from church. Spent some time at the cottage up north. Camped one weekend. Went to Metro Detroit a couple times to see Spousehole's family. That was pretty much it. Oh and Spousehole and I went to Six Flags Great America in September.

7) What did you purchase that was over $1000?

Nothing I can think of. We acquired a vehicle, but we didn't pay anything for it (my dad gave it to us).

8) Did you know anybody who got married?

Yes, but no one to whom I was close. I attended a few weddings.

10) Know anyone that passed away?

Yes, but no one with whom I was close.

11) Did you move anywhere?

I wish.

12) What concerts/shows did you go to?

None that I recall.

13) Are you registered to vote?

Yes and I exercised my right and duty to vote in three local elections.

14) Where do you live now?

In a white house with green shutters, a full front porch with rocking chairs, fenced-in backyard, full basement, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room, a living room, and a walk-up attic. What? That isn't specific enough for you?

15) Describe your birthday:

I turned 40 this year. That actual day wasn't terribly exciting. Spousehole took me and the kids to Olive Garden for dinner (not my first choice, but it was very good). Spousehole did not get me a gift or a card. He didn't even say Happy Birthday. We did go to Six Flags Great America the following weekend, courtesy of his parents. And my family did nice things for me. But Spousehole didn't even hang around while I opened gifts because something on Sci-Fi was just far more interesting than his wife.

But I'm not bitter, no, not at all.

Oh yeah, and my sister-in-law became my new best friend when she gave me a red leather Coach backpack purse. Suh-weet!!

16) What’s one thing you thought you wouldn’t do but did in 2007?

Cheat on my husband.

17) What has been your favorite moment/s?

Cheating on my husband.

No, not really. My little boy starting kindergarten and actually being able to handle regular ed kindergarten when his special ed preschool teachers didn't think that was going to be possible.

My little girl learning to speak better and being a good sharer with kids who are not her brother.

18) What’s something you learned about yourself?

I am not worthless and good-for-nothing no matter how much Spousehole tries to convince me otherwise. I am also not as revoltingly ugly as Spousehole says.

19) Any new additions to your family?

No. The kids are still lobbying for a dog, but that won't happen in 2007.

20) What was your best month?

Maybe June. No one was sick that month.

21) What music will you remember 2007 by?

Daughtry. First they released "It's Not Over" as I was trying to fight for my marriage, then they released "Over You" as I decided to get over Spousehole. I'm not there yet, but getting there.

22) Who has been your best drinking buddy?

Jose Cuervo

23) Made new friends?

Yes, for which I will be forever thankful.

24) Favorite night out?

Out? What is this "out" of which you speak?

Edit: I just re-read my answers and this is depressing! Sheez. It really wasn't all that bad. It could have been much, much worse. I am grateful for what I do have, but you don't really get that from what is written above. I do, I really, truly do, thank God for how fortunate I am overall.

Once in college I decided to drink
15 shots, walk to the liquor store got a 5th more and walked my drunk a$$ home. I made it to the bathroom and hugged my precious cold toliet all night long!
