On the Brighter Side...

How much do I love this little girl?



Enough that I let her lift my shirt to expose the shamefully fat misshapen dimply skinned belly caused by 3 months of emotional eating of chocolate chip cookies the holidays so she could blow raspberries on it- that's true love! I'm so glad to be able to get back to our regular routine of quality play time, cuddling, and pure joy- just her and I. She has the ability to cheer me up and put a smile on my face. Like when she felt me up today and whispered, "why don't I have boobies?"

So enough is enough of the downer shit- I'm over it- or I'm at least putting my best foot forward and finding joy in the little things... and in the spirit of getting back to normal- here are some random ponderances- that may not be a word...

***House training, I think, is officially accomplished! He sits by the back door and just gives us this sad little look with his Shih-Tzu under bite when he has to go outside and it only took 5 months!!! I will ignore the fact that every picture of him has those yellow demon eyes since he really is a good dog.

***I never really understood the whole Facebook phenomenon- I had an account, but never really used it. The whole sending me a tree or a leaf or a drink- I just don't get it- but within the last few months, people from my high school are popping up all over it! Some are asking for my friendship- some not- I'm OK with that- but I have become a bit of a lurker on it. I don't ask for a friendship unless I'm certain that they will remember me- and I kind of kept to myself in high school- so that's not many. However, today I had a 'notification' that "Jim Henderson" (NOT his real name) "answered whether he thinks Tena (my last name) has ever watched porno." 1.) that's all it took- I'm hooked (not on porn, but on Facebook) 2.) I never could find out what he answered and it's driving me crazy and 3.) Is there anyone that has NEVER watched porn?


***I received Arrested Development all 3 seasons for Christmas- I've watched them before and I'm not someone that like to watch things over and over HOWEVER- the more I watch this, the more I love it- comic geniuses! It makes me feel good about my life even if their problems are pretend. I will be first in line to see the motion picture!


*** I also received two new pair of pants don't you just want to roll around naked on them? Fleece, soft as a baby's butt, my 'mommy uniform' pants with an elastic waist. I'm kind of scaring myself with how fast I rush to get into them the second I walk in the house. I even walked out the door in them today to pick up the kids. I got cocky since I took a shower and all. I think they may walk by themselves by Valentines Day. I smell date night- just me and my fat pants!

That baby girl is gorgeous - that face would cheer me up too! Glad to hear you're feeling better - and hell yeah, wear those fleecy pants around all you want! They look comfy cozy!

And Facebook? Personally I can not go there. Not yet. Or maybe ever. Hmmm...

Under the Influence said...

I also was recently lured into Facebook. I don't do get the sending drinks, snowballs, etc. either and ignore those requests. I do like to see pictures of friends and acquaintances from HS, though!

My hubby got me a pair of PJ's and I make sure they are ALWAYS available for wear. I stayed in PJ's from Christmas Eve until the Saturday after Christmas. I did shower, but would put them right back on.

I am on facebook...My kids got me on it...my friends are all old...I don't think they know what facebook is?
But a friend from high school..his children asked to be my friends! Mostly I just talk to my kids on it!
I have never watched porn...sorry
it justs makes me uncomfortable or I laugh...everything seems a little too big! :)

Zookeeper said...

I've been wrestling with the Facebook thing also. I signed up for it to keep in touch with a friend overseas, but never intended to get all into it. In fact, I signed up using a nickname so that I could stay somewhat anonymous. Unfortunately that anonymity didn’t last too long. It turns out that Facebook is super popular with our fellow high school classmates because I seem to get a friendship request every other day or so. I don’t want to get hooked so I am keeping my distance, but I am slightly interested as well. Who knows? Maybe I’ll see you on Facebook one of these days!

Terri said...

Beebs is too cute for words. Facebook is a major addiction for me lately, add me - Terri Ruddell. Also in regards to your question/comment about GHWT - def worth it girl! The whole family loves it. Its only $189 and taken care of will last at least a year (lol). It has one wireless guitar, one wireless drum set and one wired mic. You can add another guitar to it so four people can jam and sing at the same time. Great for adults too ( or at least thats my rationalization!).

The Daily Blonde said...

The pants are awesome. Taking a shower...that's just going overboard.

The first pic...your little daughter...who wouldn't want to smile? She's so cute....

As far as Facebook, I use it...and have shut it down several times because I hated adopting trees, passing drinks and taking quizzes to see if I am like my "friends". Answer is pretty much "NO".

:)Happy 2009 young lady.

Marla said...

those eyes... and yes those pants...

♥georgie♥ said...

I just joined facebook and feel so lost....
Geesh Beeps is BEAUTIFUL!!!!

bsouth said...

By pants do you mean trousers? I wish they were pants (what we call knickers) - I'd love to have fleece knickers, how cosy would that be?! Your girl is gorgeous.

I'm a complete Facebook lurker, I very rarely comment or contact anyone but I like to be there just in case I'm missing out on anything!

Heinous said...

ponderances? You're a writer, so now it's a word. It's a divine right.

I mostly lurk on Facebook anymore. It eats too much time. I have some HS friends to respond to, but there's lots of other stuff to do.

Kori said...

The reasons you mentioned are the EXACT reasons I have no desire whatsoever so be on Facebook; and I love the pants. The captcha thing today says "flabste," which seems fitting with the whole fat pants thing; made me laugh, anyway.

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Love the pants! Can I ask where you got them from? I could use a few pairs!!

Soxy Deb said...

I thought we were the last two to not get the Facebook excitiment - now I am alone. *sniff*
The absolute second I walk in the house, my Yoga pants go on. I do NOT do Yoga, but I could live in these damn pants. I actually found myself checking to see which ones I had previoulsy worn and stuffed back in the dresser cause they would be more stretchy. As if Yoga pants aren't stretchy enough straight out of the dryer.

Aubrey said...

She has some beautiful eyes! Gorgeous!

My little one insists on feeling me up all the time. No use trying to fight him off. Not worth the screaming. LOL

Facebook, don't have an account BUT lurk from my son's account! That and his myspace.

Those pants look devine! I can see why you jump right into em!

The Nice One said...

I want those pants. I just can't find some comfy nice grown up sized fleece pants. What's up with that?

I heart facebook. ANd yes, I do believe that The Duggers have never watched Porn. So sad.

jill jill bo bill said...

Your baby is gorgeous! And showers are a good thing. I just signed my mom up on FB. She thinks she is hot shit now.

Jenni Jiggety said...

I love the pants and I LOVE your daughter's hat!! CUTE!

Tiffany said...

Holy shit there's another Tiffany in bloggyville?

Anyway I just joined facebook and am obsessed with flair. Who the fuck cares about buttons? Oh that would be ME!!!

And I love my fleece jammies too. Although they are Christmas themed I still wear them. Ah who cares!

LuckyMe said...

That little girl is cute as can be. I thought your kids all had dark hair and eyes. Kids, gifts, puppy, all beautiful.

I'm like Aubrey. I lurk in my kids' Facebooks. They'd be mortified if I had my own account. They'd think I was trying to be cool and trying to stalk them. SHHHH.

They're boys. How else would I know anything but their birthdates?

Mrs4444 said...

I've watched porn, but never for longer than about ten minutes, heehee!
