Update

I thought it was a smart idea to "bundle" my phone/internet/cable services. I was wrong. I had the phone hooked up last week and have been without a phone and computer on and off for the last week. Apparently my server is not strong enough to sustain both- they might have thought of that before asking me to sign up- bastards!

So, I'm writing this on borrowed time, as I await a call from a technician to do a costly service call to install a stronger server and hopefully be done before I have to pick kids up from school! JOY!

The computer and phone went down on Saturday- when I was getting ready for my sister's 80's party. I was going as an 80' punk. The technician showed up at my door 5:55pm... much to my children's chagrin, this is how I answered the door...

What you can't tell by this picture is that I have a pink and purple mohawk...



And kick ass Doc Martens...

I thought by answering the door in this garb (and acting totally natural and unapologetic) he would know to not fuck with me and FIX MY STUFF! I was wrong. He was covered in tattoos and had earrings all over his face. He called my bluff. He said there was a loose wire (there wasn't), he said he fixed it (he didn't)- and it went down again on Monday. So much for my plan!

The party was fun and I failed miserably on the picture front- sorry. This is one of my step- sisters, sister, and me... The one I'm standing next to is almost 6 ft tall and a professional sand volleyball player... note to self... never stand next to her in pictures again while NOT wearing heels! I had on so much make-up, it hurt. That's why I chose to drink Lemonade and Blue Raspberry UV- to numb the pain- I was wrong- I became a little tipsy.

My son stayed and watched the girls for the first time (notice my phone hanging out of my pocket- he called me several times.) I told him they could watch a movie and each have some candy or popcorn. My husband left for work at 7 and my son called me right after he left and said "dad said we couldn't eat". Anyone wanna take a stab at why? Because he was afraid they would choke!!! FA-REAK! I told him to just ignore him and call me if anyone started choking. He didn't call again and they were all alive when I got home.

I almost fell out of my chair when I saw you had an update...Sorry about your internet/phone troubles...but I think that same guy came to my house too...lol...not.

Love the 80's party... I sure wish we had fun people around here...everyone sucks...and leaves all the planning up to me, and then backs out cause they are all lame!!

Koodos to you on the kids staying alive!!

Ooooh, UV. Yum, yum, a yumma yum, yum. Loves it. Have you tried the apple? Oh sorry, that's not really the main point of this post is it? My bad...

You looked HAWT! And I would have never known that you were standing next to a 6 foot tall sand volleyball player if you hadn't said so. If that makes you feel better. If not, have more UV.

Glad you still had 4(?) breathing kids when you got home. Of course, even if they were choking that still means they were breathing so it's all good.

Miss reading your daily ravings T. Although I understand your reasons behind it.

You look great! And yes, Fa-Reak! I can't believe he even thought of that...

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Loved the 80's look. You did it up big!!!

Glad that your kids were fine while you partied. Now, the choking...there's worse things that could've happened like microwaving the cat or something but they did good!!

Loved the picture.

Deb said...

my husband would think the same thing... i think he would like them hermetically sealed in plastic until they are 65.
