I love and appreciate all of you!

I’ve been in the blogging community now for about five months.
What I’ve discovered is that I couldn’t live without it now.
Not only do I love writing, but I love reading. It’s like I’m allowed to walk past your windows late at night when the lights are on in your home, and peak inside not that I actually know what peeping is like, I’m just saying it’s probably a lot like that.

I have so many bloggers that I love, some have become friends to me like Aleksandra over at Busy Working Mama and Poppy over at Funny or Snot…in Poppy’s case though, I think I like her a lot more than she likes me, but that’s ok, I’m oblivious like that. I was the kid in kindergarten who’d follow you around even when you made it clear I had crusties in my nostrils. Self-respect is a small thing to give up when you’re hanging around with the kids who have Twinkies for desert when your mom sent you with that itty bitty box of rock-hard dried raisins.

And then there’s Jen at Booty and Brains who I’ve actually met, and our reunion was like a scene from a movie as we ran into each other’s arms. It was both heart warming and erotic, because seriously, Jen has a great ass.

The reason I’m writing this post is to say thank you to all of you who give me the time of day, who read my drivel posts, who take the time to comment, and leave me awards. I do appreciate everything. I take nothing for granted.

The other day, one of my favourites, Kelley at Kelley’s Breakroom, left me an award, which I want to thank her for, but I also want to address the reason why I don’t usually then write a post in which I write about awards.
It’s not because I don’t care, because believe me, I do love me some validation.
I’ll take it anyway I can get it.

The thing with a bloggy award though, is that it requires you to write seven things about yourself. I do love me writing about myself, but seven things? First of all, why seven? Why not a nice round number like ten?

But it’s hard work trying to think up seven things that aren’t boring. Oh, sure I could say things like: I love Chinese Food and I’ve been sleeping in the same ratty nightie for the past 15 years (don’t worry, it gets washed frequently enough).

However, in the spirit of the blogging community, and everyone who has taken the time to give me an award, here are seven things that nobody knows about me except my husband, my kids, and everyone else I’ve told this shit to:

1. Sometimes I’m so busy, I can’t find the time to wash my hair. I can go for 12, sometimes 13 days without washing it….Oh, don’t act so grossed out! Grease buildup in your hair is very healthy. You should see my hair when it’s clean: it’s like fucken Rapunzel’s. And anyway, there’s nothing a good hairclip and a baseball cap can’t hide. Now you’re actually starting to question the last time I washed my nightie, right?

2.  Now that I have 2 teenagers, I don’t know how my parents ever tolerated me. The bullshit that comes out of my 14 year old’s mouth makes me want to slap him. The other day he was actually trying to make me believe that a friend of his, another 14 year old, has $46,000 in his bank account from laying bricks as a summer job. I’m like, “Dude, he’s 14! Maybe he inherited that or his parents have saved that for him, but there’s no way, he made that much money from laying bricks. Did he start working when he was 3?”

I’m not even going to tell you what my son replied because it was more bullshit. But suffice it to say, the same shit came out of my mouth when I was a teenager, and I’d like to thank my mother right now for not giving me a cardboard box, a tin cup, and telling me to try my hand at being a hobo, because I am seriously moments away from doing that with my kid. “Dude, there’s a bridge around the corner. Why don’t you try your hand at living under it!”

3. I once married a man because he had a tatoo of a cartoon fox on his arm. I know, right!

4. I once divorced a man because he had the IQ of the cartoon fox tatooed on his arm.

5. Sometimes I want to quit nursing school. The only thing that keeps me in it is the fact that I have the cutest bubble gum pink hoodie with the faculty logo on it, and I like showing it off around the halls of the university.

6.  I hate the sound of people chewing. Especially my husband.
When I hear him chewing, I have to stiffle an overwhelming urge to clunk him over the head with my plate…or send him to live under the bridge with the teenager.

…and…see, I can’t even come up with a seventh.
If I do think of one, I’ll add it as an addendum.

    I know I haven't been around here long but I really love reading your posts and the smiles you put on my face :) see.

    Also, I was the kid with the rock hard box of raisins longing for the day that I got the twinkie. That day never came.

    Also again, I can't stand to hear my husband chew either. Mostly bananas. There really shouldn't be much chewing involved with a banana.

    Oh, I hate the sounds of audible chewing! I am with you on that one. As for hair washing, mine would look like a Brillo Pad if it was washed everyday!

    I like a lot of blogs for a lot of reasons, yours is one I like most because it's personality plus. I like the *you* in your blogs.

    When it's my turn for teens, can you send me the GPS coordinates for a good bridge?

    Seriously, i am your new #1 fan. I freaking adore you. And i wish i could go longeer than 2 days without washing my hair-it gets sooo greasy! So i am jealous you can go that long. Also…ms fitness…i want to hear about your workouts, hiw you eat, etc, because you are totally my motivation to keep losing weight and get some actual definition on my body. Anyway. You are fab. Carry on.

    It's not surprise you have so many followers after only 5 months. This shit is straight up FUNNY! Every time I read your blog, my husband looks at me and says, "you must be reading a funny blog again!" Thanks for the laughs. :)

    OMG! The smacking sound when someone chews with their mouth opens drives me absolutely bonkers. I have enlisted my children into helping me teach their daddy to not do it. There is nothing more shaming than a 3 year old telling daddy to chew with his mouth shut. =)

    As far as having teens go, I am in complete denial and am not having teens. And nothing anyone can say or do will make me think other wise.

    I'm completely jealous over your 650+ followers in just short months. WTF?!? You ARE hilarious, though, so I totally get it. And, hey, if you ever DO quit nursing school, you can always take your act on the road. You'd be famous in a week!!! I can totally see a sit-com based on your life. :)

    October 20, 2010 | 11:56 pm

    I can relate… I have thin oily hair, and I am lazy, sometimes I just don't feel like doing the whole shower & hair thing… yea, Crisco like someone mentioned. I have already survived the teen years. just barely (watch for the flashbacks, they are horrible). And have just begun some of the payback fun, when your kid has kids that do the crap they did & drives them bonkers… too bad it's happening to the older son who was the easier of the two… I have a feeling the younger one is afraid he will have hell on wheels & is avoiding contact with his wife as I type… and I have to add… over 650 followers! sheeeeeeeetz! yer missing out big time, maybe you should be writing for one of those stupid smucks on late night? your funnier then the writers they have now, just saying… (hiding my shameful 112, so no one sees)

    Ha!!! You crack me up! I know blog awards can be a pain in the arse, so I appreciate that you took it! I know we are all better people for knowing these 7, I mean 6, things about you. I'm really still stuck on the part where you said you can get by without washing your for many days in a row. If your hair is dirty in your profile picture, well, keep it dirty forever! It looks beautiful! Again, thanks for the nice words way up there and for your fun comments on my silly blog! I'm not sure if I'm done posting about candy or not… I've gained 20 pounds over the last week just writing about the stankin' stuff.

    I fucking hate teenagers sometimes. I hate bullshit, the amount of bullshit that I hear teens say is astounding! I'm a fucking teenager and I don't say bullshit like that unless I'm like so silly I appear to be high…Which happens often, but I don't do bad stuff! I swear!

    Just for you, I chewed my sugarless gum with my mouth wide open, because I knew you couldn't hear it. So when you read this, you'll thank me that you couldn't hear it. :)

    For what it's worth…I couldn't do it for very long. I can't stand the sound either!!

    O.M.G! I love your blog! I have an online journal to which the subtitle is "Attention Whore." The first time my ex called me that I was offended and then I stopped and thought about it… it fits!

    I like your profile and absolutely love what I've read so far!

    btw – I've recently been reassured by how many moms I have found online go without showers (or hair washing) for longer than what non-child-havers would go. I sometimes go a week without washing my hair. It really does make you appreciate how awesome it is when it is clean!

    Anyway, ramble, ramble, ramble, I look forward to reading more! Thanks for the add! I can only hope I make as many bloggy friends as you after 5 months! I've only recently gotten serious about my blog.

    A fox tattoo? Did he have a permed mullet too because I think I dated that guy too, but didn't marry him though I didn't do much better. As long as he didn't have a fanny pack, I still respect you.
    What are you talking about? I adore you. I just wish you had an email subscription and were on Twitter a little more so I could yack at you more often. When do you get your new blog design? It only took me 6 months after I paid for mine!

    I enjoy the snarky blogs or crazy stuff that happens in your life that you write about and that is entertainment to me.

    I never comment here because you are so popular I am usually commenter #320, and I don't like to be that far down the list. Arrogant huh? Anyhoo, I thoroughly enjoy your blog and can relate to it so often, except the hair thing. If I skip a day I feel so GROSS. There is a product now for $5 from Tresseme that freshens up your hair without washing it,,,dry shampoo. Okay anyways I can also relate to those 14 year old boys. I have two of them and Ugghh. Anyways, your blog is awesome, both the look and content.

    HAHAHA This made me laugh. I really enjoy your blog! So thank you for taking time to write it even though you have no time to wash your hair. If I couldn't wash my hair every day I would probably go insane and scratch at it all day long. So I have to give you props for being able to stand it.

    and when you team it with the arrogance that spurts from my know-it-all 12 yr old over dinner? UGH. kids who eat dinner w/their family do drugs & alcohol less because THEIR PARENTS CONSUMED IT ALL to cope.

Then I divorced him when he got the car repo'ed but still spent hundreds on hair products…thankfully, I didn't have kids with him, so I haven't laid eyes on him in 15 years now…phew!

    Fist pump in the air at ya! I'm in the dirty hair club for women, too. I wash my hair every 7-10 days because I HATE to do it. And thank you for the drivel AND for the reminder that I'm not the only creep, I mean, completely decent person, who likes to drive slowly in nice neighborhoods at night just to see the built-in bookshelves in other people's houses and dream about them being my own. You're fabulous!

    And depending on how long the boy has been laying bricks, and I'm guessing he worked for family, construction workers are paid pretty well; but I agree he was probably teasing your son.

    Have a great day!

    You're in nursing school?! I didn't know that. Let me tell you, being a nurse is completely different than being a student. Don't get discouraged. The nursing career is awesome and I love it way more than school. Hang in there and you'll be able to buy all the pink sweaters you like!

    I am so with you on the chewing thing. My hubby has to be the loudest chewer in the world – only the fact that I love him (and that it's illegal to kill him) is the reason he's still alive to keep on chewing.

    Just found your blog. I read one post and I'm already hooked ( I think maybe I was the kindergartner with the crusties in my nose as well, so forgive me for any future blog stalking).
    Don't get me started on the audible chewing. I used to have a babysitter that had this issue to an EXTREME. You could actually hear her teeth clicking together. AHHH. Its like nails on a chalkboard!!

    ROTFLMAO!! I am so glad you decided to share these (very very interesting) tidbits about yourself with the blogging community. I can totally relate to the one about hating the sound of people (HUSBANDS) chewing. I yelled at my husband just the other day for chewing. Very adult of me I know but it's like fingernails on a black board to me…

    I most dread when k-ster is chewing and the refrigerator stops making it's noise. It's like he's eating gravel. i would whack him over the head with my plate but then i'd be left to clean up the mess.

    I love the validation too, but I'm out of blogs to mention. I have a very hard time keeping up with those I love. And I also think I'm out of secrets… unless you include my unnatural obcession with "Vampire Diaries". Well, now I guess that one's out of the bag too. -J

And teenager. Give him a trowel and send him to the nearest brick layer. Seriously, my Stepdad was a brick layer. A good one hired to do specialty work on museums and stuff.

    I was so loving this post, was going to comment on almost everything. Until I got to number 6. The husband chewing thing. OMG!!! I literally have to leave the room when my husband is eating. I know everyone makes noise when they eat, how can you eat chips silently. But, I swear my husband does it extra loud just to get rid of me.
    And don't even get me started on how loud he drinks. Seriously.

    Hey there Funny Lady! Im up there with you in the unwashed hair stakes. I used to have such a phobia of people teasing me about having greasy hair. Now…I just don't care! Nothing that a ponytail or a hat can't hide. Rock on, sista!

    OMG I hate the sound of people chewing, too. Ick. I also hate how my (wonderful, sweet soulmate) husband holds a fork with food on it over his plate and shakes it up and down….like he's trying to rid it of any excess juices. Stop the shaking!!

    And you featured me! Oh darlin', you're so sweet! I can write darlin' now that I've lived in the south for 8 years. I can't say it right, but I can write it.

    TGIF!!! Hope you all have a great weekend! I can also say you all now that I'm a southerner. But not y'all because that's just wrong.

    I want to know where that kid lays bricks. I could use 40,000 dollars.

    Hey that's cheating. That's really two things about the same person. Now you have to tell us one more thing to make up for it.

    I can go 13 days without washing my hair, and you would never know the difference. (smirk)

    You've come a long way in a short time. Keep up the good work.

    I just have to say that I love your blog!

    And that I hate it when my husband chews, too. Seriously, how can someone chew soft, mushy cake so loudly?! Don't even get me started on chips . . .

    I love my husband, he's great in so many ways, but his chewing of food is disgusting. Really, it's loud and there is a lot of open mouth stuff going on. I'm so not into the way he chews. I tried to get him on a liquid diet, but he bought me earplugs instead.

    Hysterical! I despise the sound of chewing, too.
    And I hope and pray I don't sell my son to the gypsies when he hits teenage land!
    Glad you stopped by my blog!

    I completely agree with number 6. Glad it's not just me that hates that noise.

    You are AWESOME!

    Teenagers suck…how did our parents not kill us, seriously?? I'm right there with you…enduring the pain. We better get a posh nursing home out of the deal!

    Keep up the nursing school. Your pink hoodie is worth it.

    I must say, Sandra, you do have a way with words! I was laughing pretty hard about the crusties in the nostrils, so I read it to my daughter. She then told me something I never knew…in kindergarten she used to scare other kids away with the witches wart she had on her thumb. Oh, I remember the wart, but I never knew she had used it to such advantage! Her older sister even used to sic her on the kids she didn't like. Hmmmm. I just want to say, about the teenagers, take a few deep breaths and remind yourself that they're going to be the parents of your grandchildren. You DO want to see your grandchildren, DON'T you????

    You have to market your secret to blogging for only 5 months and getting this many followers/comments.

    In the meantime, I like the new look! Messing with your blog is way more fun than studying, isn't it?
