Friday Fragments


Holy Crap! It's been so long since I've done this, I think my cherry has grown back- so please be gentle. Join in with your own fragments at Half-Past Kissin' Time.


***Well, I'm not dead, if you were wondering. I'm really OK- I mean, I really could use a refill on my anti- anxiety meds, but that's beside the point. I won't bore you with details (stress, uninspired, just plain busy trying to figure out how to work my new DVR) why I haven't posted in a long time, I just haven't. I've been wrapping my head around other things and OCD patients don't make good multi-taskers. I really go balls to the wall when I get an idea in my head- currently working on my 20 year class reunion and getting in shape.


***My blogoversary came and went and I didn't realize it- so Happy Blog Birthday to me- 1 year on April 10!


***My sister's long awaited 30th birthday/80's themed party is this weekend. I have been dedicating a large amount of my brain to get ready for this, as well. Ebay, Amazon, thrift stores- I've been all around and am very excited. The costume is pretty fun- God-willing, I will post pics next week. I have learned that there is a fine line between 80's punk and the S&M look- this being a family party- I'm trying my best not to blur that line!


*** I am a Karaoke freak. I have 2 machines. I have a large catalog of songs. I have them at all of my parties and now my sister likes them at her parties. I had lost track of my new CD's and I have spent a lot of time this week updating my library for her party- I have over 500 songs! I have 6 hard copies of my 'catalog'- laminated and bonded- I AM A DORK!


***I don't have a babysitter for my sister's party. LOSER! Everyone I know will be there and my husband's family doesn't really babysit for us. I suggested to my overprotective husband to let my 14 yr old son watch the girls for a couple hours and then asking one of my parents to come over when they leave the party. Yes, my son fights HORRIBLY with my 12 year old daughter, but I am desperate- my husband's response? Didn't you see Changeling? Thanks a fucking lot Angelina Jolie! My husband has no grasp on reality and DID NOT need to know that story!


*** My cousins have found my blog because Ellen Degeneres told them to join Twitter- crazy, right? I have no idea how they found me! If you're reading- hi ladies! I have to say it's freaking me out- they were VERY complimentary and sweet- but, nonetheless, it's like someone peeking into your brain and knowing your secret thoughts, but I put myself out there, so I'm dealing- just promise to keep our agreement NOT to let my sister read it! Especially next week- I plan on posting a birthday tribute for her- full of unflattering and funny photos of her- it's all payback for her getting the skinny gene!

***Next week, my daughter has her First Communion and the next week is my son's Confirmation. I am doing a Brunch at my house on Sunday and will most-likely go overboard, like usual- so I'm having anxiety about that, too.

*** I have to get this off my chest- Facebook- it's a cool networking tool and voyeur site- yada, yada, yada...BUT if you want to tell me something- E-MAIL ME! I don't want everyone to be able to see my conversations- it's just weird!


*** So hopefully, this will serve as me"getting back on the horse", but I do have lots going on- so I'm not making any promises. Thanks to those of you that e-mailed me and checked on me- it meant a lot!

This TOTALLY counts in my book!! I think its a virus running through the bloggy world, everyone I know (including myself) seems to be having a bad case of bloggers block this Spring.

Yaya said...

I agree w/ the "wall" on facebook. Why not message it??!

jill jill bo bill said...

♥georgie♥ said...

J'Ollie Primitives said...

Happy Blogoversary Tena! (tooting party horn)

Jen said...

I thought about emailing you a couple of times but then I felt like a crazy stalker.

I feel the same way about Facebook and the "wall". It is totally misused by people.

Happy Blogiversary! Hope you get your mojo back--you've definitely been missed. Have a fun time at all your upcoming events!! :)

Under the Influence said...

Be thankful your family members gave you a shout out. Take it from me, it's not fun to find out that family members found your blog over a year ago and have been reading and discussing it that whole time!

Kristina P. said...

Happy blogiversary!

Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

I was wondering where you were...

Ronda's Rants said...

Tena...your back...and dang are you busy!

Susan in the Psych Ward said...

Happy Blogaversary!! How great is that????

Facebook..... if I don't want people to see stuff that's what the inbox if for! But I do comment on people's status updates.. and have conversations that way....... but the inbox is crucial for this! I know what you mean.... but, with that said, I still love my facebook!

Good luck with the first communion confirmation.... I remember freaking out over the party after wards..... all I wanted was some damn wine to calm me down!

like I've said before, I've missed you!!!

Mrs4444 said...

Holy COW, Tena!! You mean you have a LIFE? Even so, that's an incredible, incredible amount of busy-ness going on, so I think you do need that karoake party. Send your daughter to a friend's house for a sleepover!

Happy Blogiversary!! And kudos to you for getting rid of that butt of yours!! Can't wait to see the pics :)

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Wow! Busy lady! The party sounds like fun! I can't wait to see the pictures. Now, how much trouble can your kids get into? If you're real close by, then have certain times for them to check in with you and you on them. I'm sure they'll be fine.

MLC's Mom said...

Wow do you ever have a lot going on! The party sounds like soooo much fun. Good luck & have a blast.

Jill said...

Happy Blogiversary!

And ditto on the Facebook stuff. I still don't like the new look. It's so intrusive!

Megryansmom said...

Happy Belated Blogoversary.

Hope you get a sitter for the party. I can send my daughter if you'd like.

The Daily Blonde said...

Thank goodness someone said it about the Facebook thing. Personal conversations don't belong there...in fact, I hate "wall posts" and delete them. It's so boring to read "How are you" "Good, great...fantastic" "So, my husband needs Viagra"....email me, I agree.

I was hoping to see you back!

HappyHourSue said...

I totally emailed the BlogHer powers that be and said 'we need a DJ' and they were all "it's all women, lameass" and I was all "exactly" but they said they ARE going to have KARAOKE!!!!!!!

Blogomama said...

I guess I'll try again my comment just got trashed. I understand the Twitter sabatical, sometimes u just gotta! As soon as your partay fever subsides, we expect you back! As far as ur cuz finding you on Twitter. It's that fabulous download your address book here feature. I trumped it and changed to an alternate. I wud advise you to do the same. Imagine their bewilderment when ur avatar poppped up! Hope to see you back soon!

Paige said...

Glad you are back!

Holly said...

LOL! I know what you mean about having people who know in real life finding your blog!

I was weirded out when my friends started reading mine, but they ended up jumping on the bandwagon themselves and starting their own blogs, so it ended up being ok. :)

Annie said...

miss you.
Want to see you in spandex with teased hair. Show me the pictures!
