no words...

adam sent this link to me earlier and at first I thought it was a joke. This person seems to not have all their facts straight and it is a real shame.

I know a lot of you oppose this war (as I do) but the thing is, this is not the troops fault. These are men and women who signed up, just like Adam, with the sense of wanting to help out where they could. Not so they could leach off the system. haha I can't even type that with a straight face. What with the whole $150.00 Adam gets paid a month, i hardly call that leaching.

I am so pissed about this site I can't think straight.

I am not asking you to do anything, especially not to send this loser hate mail, because he probably feeds off that stuff. But just be aware that fuckers like this exist and pray especiallly hard for him and our troops.

Thanks guys

All by myself...Don't want to be dah dah dah dah daah

Ok I hate these whiny please make me feel validated posts as much as the next guy, but I feel like shit.
Is it just the fact that I have a kid, or do most people generally dislike me?
I got dissed so many times on Saturday it was like a bad after school special.

It's just making me feel crappy, and I want to whine about it. Josh, has been doing the big avoidance dance, and Daniel, Sean and Aaron, just want to hang out with Conner. Bret's in Chicago, Ryan and Tiffany are in Midway.
Andrew-well I don't know what happened to Andrew, he hasnt returnd a call in 6 months. Sarah and I can't just seem to reconnect and Tyler is so busy with her job.

I know I can be sarcastic sometimes, but really is it just that I am a bitch? Come on tell me, I haven't seen a change over the last few years but there has appearantly been one.

Ok whining over. Sorry for putting up with it. :-)

The next Martha or Genivieve?(or however the hell you spell it)

I thought I would update with some pictures of the house with stuff in it!

Adam=Housewife?

Well in a sense yes. Ever since Adam got back from basic last year, he hasn't gone back to the corporate world. Totally our choice, and we were totally digging it. He worked for the Embrys for a while, then for Bob, then for himself, then for Bob again. Then Bob just couldn't handle the pressure anymore of having a dependant.

Adam has been very busy working on the house on French Creek Road and getting it ready to sell/rent, and spending some awesome time with Conner. It is great that we haven't had to put Conner in day care yet (knock knock). The money so has not been a problem either. (major props to me for being the major and sometimes only breadwinner).

The only problem? Adam is going crazy not having some kind of militray schedule to adhere to. Here is the sick part. The crazy actually likes to work. It's just messed up. Even when he worked at Centimark he enjoyed the job and the peole that he worked for most of the time.

Me on the other hand. Nope, I will probably only be completely happy if I am working for myself. Or in promotions and communications, but damn you want to talk about a major paycut. No thanks.

The thing that has been so funny is despite all of Adams talents and his crazy-smartness, it has been so tough for him to get hired somewhere. I think it is 1 of 2 things.
1) He is in the military. The employers are probably afraid that they will hire him and then he will get called to active duty (not bloody likely).
2) His crazy work pattern over the last year.

I can recall hearing differant people talk about how when their kids are older and grown the stay at home parent would probably go back to work and how they are dreading, re-entering the workforce. I never understood why until now. There is always someone just a liiiitle more qualified and who will take just a little less money.

Fussy.org

I mean if there isn't a website name that describe me more perfectly. It's no wonder I am a fan.
Mrs. Kennedy pretty much rocks my world. She has the most bitchen' first name- Eden. It's just so-so pretty! I luurve it. She can cuss without sounding like she lives in a trailor. She can describe birthday party scenes gone awry like nobody's business. Plus her hair rules, how many people can pull off that cute style?

So, in honor of Fussy.org, here are my obligatory Fussy shirts. Of which I have already had 3 comments and 4 funny stares today.

Of course the "holy shit look how big this shirt makes my boobs look" shot.

Now, if I could just jump on that writing well part...

Proving Their Point?

I in NO WAY condone any type of Nazi-thinking or any type of bigotry/racism/racial profiling-black,white,blue,green- whatever.

However, I am sure in the eyes of the Nazi demonstrators, this pretty much proved their point.

I mean good lord, they just showed scenes on the news, and it was all these people (99.9 % being black which is what the Nazi group was apparently demonstrating- well "black crime" whatever that means) started rioting. Burning buildings, throwing rocks and shit at ambulances and the police. I mean what the hell is that about???

Hello? What the hell were you trying to prove? I mean I think the Nazi's followed all the "rules" and ended up putting on a respectable (Good lord respectable and Nazi don't even go in the same damn sentance) protest.

Anyway, before I start getting hatemail or comments, all I am saying is that it just seemed ironic that the group was protesting a certain groups level of crime, and then they went and demonstrated it right in front of national news channels.

Dumbasses...

Driving Refresher Course

yield.gif

It has come to my attention that a majority of the drivers out there do NOT know what the above sign means, so as a gesture of public service, allow me to help.

IT MEANS YIELD FUCKERS, THE OTHER CAR HAS THE RIGHT OF WAY, WHETHER YOU HAVE TO SLOW DOWN(READ: NOT SPEED UP AND RIDE SIDE BY SIDE WITH THEM DETERMINED TO BE THE WINNER) AND ALLOW THE OTHER CAR TO MERGE, OR STOP, YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!You are NOT exempt based on the size, cost, color of your car, or the area in which you live (yeah I mean you, you Anchorage living bastards).

I have been cut off so many damn times, I can always see it coming.

First there is the recognition of the other car, you can see it in their eyes, They. Will. Win.
Then there is the acknowledgement but disregard for the Invertred red triangle sign.
Next is the getting down to business pose, both hands on the wheel, foot slammed on the gas pedle and evil sideways glance.

JUST FUCKING YIELD!

World Disasters

Every Friday, I look at MSNBC's Week in Pictures. I don't know why, I almost always get upset by the images, there is almost always a heart-wrenching picture of our troops, and especially lately of the destruction across the world.

It seems like these natural disasters are just happening left and right, and I get so upset. I can't stand to see family's ripped apart, the children who lost parents and the parents who lost children.

Yesterday on the way home I was listening to 89.3, the local NPR station and they were interviewing a Pakistani man who was sitting outside one of the destroyed school houses. He said he knew that both his sons were dead but he just wanted their bodies so he could have a grave for them, that was all he had left. I just lost it. I had to pull over I was crying so hard. I couldn't imagine how it would feel to lose not one but both of your children.
I wouldn't be able to go on. Dramatic as that may sound it would be the truth. If I lost Conner, life would cease for me.

I try to tell myself that these things happen and God is there to provide comfort and the lost ones are in such a better place, but how hard for those that remain?

These are the times when I struggle with my Christianity and I get just so angy. Not at God specifically, but at myself, for not letting it go, and for trying to question everything. For not understanding.

How do you cope with these times? Do you just push it our of your mind? Do you pray?

Clutz

Went to the Get Motivated Seminar with Adam today, fell down the stairs at Freedom Hall in front of 10,000 people, had to go to the emergency room, did X-Rays, foot not broke just severly strained.

I don't know what hurts worse, my foot or my ego...

Adam SUCKS at Halloween

Yes so I guess I knew that going into this but for GOD's Sakes he won't even dress up for Halloween. And it's not like it's the lamest outfit either. He says it's just no fun. Siiggghhh. What a downer.

boobs

The shirt that I had on today, yeah it made my boobs look great. I couldn't get over it! I just keep checking them out in the mirror everytime I would go to the bathroom!

Post-baby cleavage rules!

Thanks

There is this girl that works at the Panera Bread by my work, who always makes an effort to talk to me when I come in there. It's kind of nice to be a "regular" somewhere. She is very talkative and kind of reminds me of my old friend Brooke.

She always comments on something I am wearing, or my purse or ring or something. Today she told me she liked my shirt, and commented to the girl working beside her, "she always has the prettiest things."

It absolutely made my day. I know it may be stupid but what a great thing to hear-from ANYONE!

So Katie, thanks for always making my day when I go into Panera Bread, it's always a pleasure.

2nd place in the Parade!

Hooray, the ESNA won 2nd place in this years Harvest Homecoming Parade. I happen to think it was one cute little chick who sent us right over the edge too!

It was a great day and a fun afternoon. Here is a group pic!
UPDATE Ok I am having some trouble with the picture so I will do it later
