Saturday 9: Should I Stay or Should I Go

Nope not really.  I usually pretty easy to please.

A lot of them.  One of the biggest ones is listening to people chew when they are eating.  I will get up and leave the room because I can’t deal with it.
4. Tell us about a guilty pleasure of yours.
I don’t know that I really have any.  I don’t let myself feel guilty about a lot.  I guess eating pizza or Subway is one though because I shouldn’t eat them because of the Gluten but I can’t stop.

9. If you were to start a new relationship (for whatever reason), how much of your sexual history would you share? Would you resort to lying?
I would be totally honest.  If they asked I would tell them.  I feel like you shouldn’t hid things from people when you are in a relationship.  It just isn’t right and I also am not ashamed for who I am and what I have done in my life.

Advice & Why I Am Glad To Get A Divorce

It is Thursday and that means it is time for Mama Kat’s Writers Workshop.  I haven’t done this in awhile because none of her prompts seemed like something I could write about but this week there are two of them that I want to write about.  So here goes nothing hope you all enjoy this edition of the Writers Workshop.
The Prompts:

1.) 10 Reasons why you’re better off without him….or her….or it.

  1.  Less drama
  2. Less fighting
  3. I no longer have to feel bad if I don’t feel like talking to him that day.
  4. I don’t have to be around his dog!!!!! (His dog is dumber than a bag of rocks!)
  5. Not worried about what he is doing and who he is talking to.
  6. Don’t have to check in with him
  7. Couldn’t trust him after what he did on Christmas in 2008
  8. I only have to worry about me and my cats
  9. I actually get to spend a little bit of my check
  10. I am not always worried about paying his creditors and how we are going to stay above water for another month.

2.) Brea from Tomika’s Treasure Trove wants your advice: Quick question. I am new to the blogging world, having clocked up less than 2 weeks worth of posts, and I have just had an ‘Anonymous’ commenter slam me for blogging about my daughter, mentioning her by name, posting photos and up-to-date stories about her. I have not mentioned anywhere in my blog where we live, Country OR State, or what school she goes to. I have also seen, on several other blogs, that other parents do the same thing as me. Some even mention where they live. I was wondering, as a fellow blogger who posts about your family, what are your thoughts on the subject?

Well I would tell the people who have anything to say to just go away.  It is your blog and you can post whatever you want.  If you are fine posting that stuff don’t worry about what everyone else thinks.  It isn’t really any of their business what you post on your blog.  I love how people think that because they are comfortable with posting those things on their own blogs and everyone else shouldn’t post them either.
I guess the best way to put it is it is your blog post what you want and tell everyone else if they don’t like it they don’t have to read it!

Not really.  I never stayed close to any of them.

New York-I have a big mouth and I tend to be rude and speak with out thinking.

Cute Post It Notes

Thanks to Amber I have cute notes today!  I had a tutorial up on how to make them and I followed it and this is what I came up with!

Well that is all for tonight!  I ran out of time and I have to get a program for my mac so I can do them again next week!
Have a great Tuesday!

As Seen On TV

It is Monday and that means it is time for Supah’s Monday MeMe.  This week it is about a as seen on TV project that we bought or that we would like to buy!  The only thing I have bought is the Magic Bullet!

Now I have to say that when I got it I was super happy about it but after awhile I found that it really isn’t as good as a blender is.  I love using it for desert and what not but for things like drinks it doesn’t really work very well.  When I tried to use it to chop things up it didn’t work well at all.  Over all I still love it and will never get rid of it.  It just isn’t as useful as they make it seem.
I also got a snuggie for Christmas and I have decided that it is just just a blanket with arms.  I can say that I don’t really like it and I would never have bought one for myself.  My grandma is the one who uses it now.  It isn’t very thick at all.   I guess I would rather just have my heating blanket.

About Me!

The questions..
1. How often do you wash/change your sheets?
I try and do it once every two weeks but lately I haven’t had the energy to do it.  I did change them today though and in the process hurt my back doing it.
2. When is your birthday?
It is November 26th.
3. Have you ever met a bloggy friend in real life?
No but I might be meeting one soon!  I really hope we get to meet because she is cool and I love her blog! You all should check her out! Mormon Surrogate
4. Brad Pitt or George Clooney?
Neither lol Not sure if that is an option but I am going with it!
5. If you could change one thing about your body what would it be?
Get rid of my fat stomach!  I hate it and no matter what I do it won’t go away so I have just given up on it!
6. How often do you wash your hair?
I depends on if it is curly or straight but usually every other day or so.
7. Do you have pets?
I have two cats that are like my kids.
8. How many social networks do you belong to..if you had to give up one, what would it be
I belong to a few of them and I would love to give up Myspace.  In fact I could probably get rid of it because I hardly ever get on it anymore!

My Little Life

Questions for Friday, February 19th: (Thanks to Renee, Christy, Heidi, Lisa P, and Robin for their question suggestions! Would YOU like to be linked in a future 5QF? Just offer up your best questions here, in my community!)

1. Have you ever hit an animal with your vehicle?
Yes I have hit quail while I was driving to work.  I think they are the dumbest birds alive.  They see you coming and run out into the road.
2. When you see a string on your clothes do you pull it off or cut if off?
I usually try and pull it off but most of the time I end up cutting it of because my hands are very strong anymore because of the MS and the fact that they are numb.
3. Did you have your own room or share a room when you were young?
I have always had my own room.  I don’t know how to share a room so even though I have been married I am still not good and sharing a room or my bed.
4. Would you rather wear the same thing for the rest of your life or eat the same thing for the rest of your life?
Wear the same thing.  It doesn’t matter to me if I wear the same thing every day.  Whats bugs me is always eating the same thing.
5. What was your favorite TV show as a child?
I didn’t watch much TV as a child so I really have no idea what I did watch.

Finally This Week Is Half Done!

I want to thank everyone for all the kind words and for sticking behind me.  It is nice to know that I am really not alone in all of this.  Now not only do I have Misti, and Jill I also have people who read my blog and are there if I just need to vent or blow off some steam.  I am so thankful that people can see like I do why I can’t trust him again and why it just won’t work.  I feel like I am on a roller coaster with him anymore.  One day he is nice and caring and then other days he is a total ass about everything.  I just feel like I am going crazy.  Right now he is being nice to me and I hope that is stays this way but god only knows when he will be a dick head to me again.  I am trying to hard to stay positive about the whole situation and know that in the end it will be okay but when he is a jerk it just makes me feel so bad about everything.  I hope that he will figure it out soon or I am going to have to stop talking to him because I can’t continue to do this whole up and down thing with him anymore.  That is it for today because my brain is tired and I am emotional exhausted. 

I hope everyone is having a great day!
