Mirror, Mirror

So when I was in my 20's I looked like the girl in the mirror. Now in my 30's I look closer to the girl looking into the mirror.   I swear when I look in my mirror at home, I still look like that svelte 20 something year old.  Yet when I walk by a window or some other mirror, I am just about knocked over with utter shock to see that the person looking back at me is really me and it is so NOT that svelte 20 something yr old that I see in my mind!  Anyone else have that same bitch following them around?

Voting time

**VOTE ****VOTE ****VOTE ****VOTE ****VOTE **



With all of the talk of the upcoming elections I thought this topic might be fitting for the situation.  I have entered both of my animals into The World’s Coolest Dog & Cat Show on Dogster & Catster.   It is a pretty great site if you haven’t already heard about it or belong to already.  That is right here I am like the other candidates begging, praying, wishing, hoping for your vote.  I am not going to tell lies about the other candidates, because we don’t play that way.  I am not going to show you pictures of them being  bad and caught in the act or of their owners doing unthinkable things.  I am sure you can just imagine what some of those things are.  It makes me shudder actually. So I am just going to tell you about how WONDERFUL Chip & Tee-Tee are. 
I invite you to check out all of the candidates, but I implore you to come back to the sweet pictures of Tee-Tee (doggy) & Chip (kitty) and vote for them.  There are several categories that you can vote for.  I have entered Tee-Tee into 2 categories and Chip into 5 categories. 
Here are the easy steps to vote for Chip and Tee-Tee.  If you are going to vote for other animals then please don't use these simple steps to help you figure out how to vote for other animals.  :) You will just have to stumble along and figure it out on your own.  hee he
2.  If you have a FB account then you can log in using the Facebook connect.  If not then if you already have an account with Dogster.com or Catser. com you can log in and vote.  If you do not have an account with either then you will need to register.  However, I swear it is easy peasy! I promise.
3.  Once you have logged in and are on this page  http://catster.com/show10/  you will need to enter in their ID#'s
4. Chip's # is 1132482 and Tee-Tee's # is 1132484.  When voting there are 5 paw prints and you can choose from 1(being the lowest) to 5 (being the highest), you will need to decide how low or high you wish to vote for the photo and then click on the vote button.  Once it has accepted it it will say VOTED.  I can only hope that you would want to vote 5 paws for all of the pics.  If anyone needs any persuasion of any kind please let me know and we will see what we can do to accomodate your needs.  You scratch our back, we will scratch and massage your back!!  (Yikes, I am sounding just like those horrible politicians!!?

OK I’m up!!! I’m up!!!

It is a dark and dreary morning and I am snuggled in bed. The phone rings at 8:03 am. As far as I am concerned that is sacrilegious. Especially since no one has to be up at that hour in my household on that day. Anyway, it is a doctor’s office and I answer it and take care of it. I get up and go pee since I am awake, right? I know TMI? Oh well you are the one reading this and by now y’all should know what to expect from me…you never know what to expect from me. So I get back in bed all comfy and that damn phone rings again 10 min later. Really people? OK another doctor’s office. Granted mom has been ill, but is it necessary for all of them to call before the crack of dawn? Geesh! Granted if I was a normal person (no comments from the peanut gallery here folks) I would have already been up and at work for at least 2 hours, but we are not talking about normal people now are we? Ok let’s try this one more time. I let Tee-Tee out to go pee and make sure that this time I can at least, God willing rest for a bit longer. See, I stay up late and the night before I did just that. So I need, ok WANT to get a bit more sleep. I crawl into bed and start dozing and 30 minutes later the phone rings again… OK I AM UP!!! Obviously it is not meant for me to sleep. Right? I mean that is how I am taking it.


So the next day is Saturday morning and there is a pounding on our front door at 9am. Ok… does someone hate me? I am not supposed to sleep in anymore? Am I supposed to go to bed early now or what? Another dark and dreary day and there is POUNDING on m front door. UGH!! So I throw on my glasses (since I normally wear contacts) and go to the front door. I am still in pj’s and am trying to finger comb my short wild woman from Borneo hair down as to not scare the holy hell out of anyone.   

Granted I didn't have coffee or slippers but I pretty much felt like this.

I open the door and there stand 3 little boys from the house behind me. Now get this… their father (whom by the way happens to be an ASSHOLE but that is another blog) took one of their sneakers and hit it with a bat and knocked it into my yard. WTF??? And that was for???? So I let the rug rats darling children into my yard to see if they could find it. They were unable to. They think it was on top of one of our sheds. I told them I would check it out later when I was more awake.

Again I come back to bed and think I am going to try this again. The phone rang 20 min later and this time it was a wrong number! I give up. I am up.!! I am up!!!

Hope you all have a great weekend!
