Oh, and then there was the bout in Ocala!! Holy crap! I wasn't sure what I was going to do to be ready. I was sneezing, coughing, couldn't take a full breath, and dipping back and forth between running a fever and not running a fever. I had no clue what to do. Then I came up with a new cocktail that solved all my problems. I call it the Hell On Wheels.
1 Sugar free Red Bull shot.
2 tbsps. Dayquil
1 32oz. bottle of orange Gatorade.
Swish together well and chug, chug, chug!!! I was on my feet and ready to hit! It lasted till after the bout and almost through the after party, but eventually it wore off and I just wanted to come home and snuggle with HHH.
So now I think I am finally on the mend from this icky what ever it is I caught from Mad Cap! (at least, I think it was her!) Thankfully, I didn't give it to the kids or HHH. Now, on to spring and all the pollen and crap that comes with that!

Today I saw something that just irked me!
Ever since we have had a dog, I have cleaned up after him. First with Toby, then Bernie, and now Gobo. Our apartment community has Dog Pot baggie stations all over the grounds so people can pick up after their pets when the do the doo. I always make sure I have a bag before hand by taking a new bag as I'm dropping the used one in the Dog Pot can and tying it around the handle of the retractable leash! Nothing is more annoying than being out in the dark at 5:30am while the dog is doing the hunch dance and trying to remember where he made his "deposit" after having shuffled over to get a bag! Well, I guess not everyone is like me in that respect!
This morning, as I was walking over to the Dog Pot station to drop off Gobo's leavings, I almost stepped in the BIGGEST pile of dog shit I have ever seen!! It was almost as big as my dog!!! And you wanna know the kicker to it all?
IT WAS EXACTLY ONE FOOT FROM THE DAMN DOG STATION!
One frickin' foot!! Who the fuck is that damn lazy?? The bags and the can are right there you lazy punter! Be a decent human and pick up your dog's damn shit! Now, there are lot's more people here who don't pick up their dog's crap, but that one just tweaked me something fierce. If you love your pets, pick up their crap!
Anyone else have this problem where they live?

And now I need more Dayquil!!
Thursday, February 17, 2011
We got a truck.
Not just any truck. A Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab. It's H-U-G-E!
(Heh, heh... that's what SHE said!)
I'll get photos tomorrow and put them up here. Needless to say, I could fit the Cloud in the bed of it!! Poor Cloud..... I hope it doesn't get jealous!! Either way, now I have Cloud to get around town with and Truck to go on journeys, such as this weekend's journey to Universal for the B52's concert! What whaaaaaaaaaat!
But I'm still sick. I'd really like that to go away now.

If you haven
t guessed yet, I already took the Nyquil and I'm just ramblig on... Like I got Mo's wheels for her skates today. Tomorrow I'll get Jr.'s skates!! Yayayayyayayayayayay!
OK. Good night...zzzzzzzzzzz
I'm scanning the internet for info from the bout on Sunday. Then I'm plucking the links and getting them up on Twitter and FB so the rest of the team can see them and then get them out to all of their friends, etc, etc, etc.....
Then HHH asked me if I could make up a quick birthday cake for a coworker, so I made up a 2 tiered yellow cake with home made butter cream icing. Yeah, I'm good.
Now if I could just do something about this sore throat that I have coming on!!

And because we never have any luck on VDay....
I woke up feeling nauseous. I don't think the shrimp are sitting well and there may be puking involved.

It was a great game. Bradentucky led the whole game till the last jam. Then FMDG caught up right at the end and it looked like they won by 1 point,
FMDG's jammer committed a foul by calling off the final jam when she wasn't the lead jammer, causing the head ref to call for an overtime penalty jam. Tenacious C ripped around the track, scored 2 points to take Bradentucky over the top 167 to 166!! It was a nail biter all the way and the teams played awesome. Can't wait till it's my turn next Sunday in Ocala!

.....drum roll please......
Otherwise known as @LilMissTiedUp on Twitter, Nicole was #6. I had a bit of a problem while picking the winner though, because I knew the #4 had tweeted and FB'd the post, but forgot to put a comment on the post about both of those things. After wringing my hands about it, I had to go with my own rules I set forth and pick the actual 6th person on the comments list! I'm sorry. Please don't hate me!!
So, Congrats to Nicole! I'll send along that code right away!!!

I just don't do Valentine's Day.
See, usually when ever HHH and I have tried to do something for Valentine's day, it either ended in disaster or never got off the ground. I remember one time, we made reservations at The Melting Pot up while we were living in Memphis. We got there on time, but had to wait for our table. We ordered champagne, but it was a half bottle, not a full one. We ordered the special Fillet & Lobster dinner for two, but the chef and kitchen staff forgot to de-vein the lobster and I got a big old mouthful of lobster poo. You see the trend here, right? Yeah. It usually goes like this. And that is when we can go out. With HHH being a maintenance guy, there is the high probability he will be on call, negating the possibility of going out at all. So much for that.
Then there's the part where I REFUSE to pay big $$$$ for stuff that usually costs $ when it isn't some holiday. Why do flowers that normally cost $15 suddenly cost $60 just because of the date? And don't give me that "supply and demand" crap. These retailers have enough supply. They spend months getting ready. I can understand if there was a shortage, but if there is a shitload of stuff left over on February 15th??? Well, then there was enough supply!
I don't know.... maybe I'm just not much of a romantic. I really want to be, but it just never works out that way, so I pretty much just let it go. I get the kids their Valentine's from the store to take to school and that's that. Sometimes we will exchange gifts. This year HHH asked me what I wanted and I told hin a Keurig. Well, he got me a Keurig a week or so ago and it was even red! Valentine's Day is already done! Yay!
Now bring on Easter so I can get the last of the Candy Centric Holidays out of the way. Halloween to Easter is just a frickin' nightmare for diabetics! And don't forget that I will be posting the winner of the CSN Gift Code Contest on Friday!! Remember to come back and check!
So, there you have it, my baby boy kicking booty in the classroom!

Hoo doggie! I woke up this morning with a whopper of a stomach ache. Oh yippee.
So Eldest is on the couch under blankets while the other two are at school. I made it to and from without barfing so yay for me. Now to get through the day!
What are you all doing??

4lbs of chicken wings.
1lb of Potato Salad.
1lb of Macaroni Salad.
2 Bowls of Tortilla Chips.
1 Bowl of Salsa.
1 Bowl of carrot & celery sticks.
1 Bowl of Ranch.
1 Bowl of Bleu Cheese.
5 People watching the Super Bowl.
We had a really good time. I only had to get pissed off at the kids once. I had fun tweeting the plays and commercials and seeing my friends feed back. My favorite commercials of the night were the VW Darth Vader Kid and Bud Light's Dog's Playing Poker. A few had me scratching my head. Groupon's "Tibet" spot seemed a little tactless and in poor taste. Even later when I found that Groupon was donating money to the charities they were lampooning, I still found it in poor taste. Meh.... that's just me. Snickers was funny, but not as much as last year. They just outdid themselves w/Betty White and how do you follow that??
So Congratulations to Green Bay. It was a good game. I love a heavily contested fight rather than a blowout, and the Packers & Steelers did just that. I'm quite sure the people of Pittsburgh will be saying Big Ben should have gotten his head out of the Dallas titty bars and into the game, but that's neither here nor there.
Now for 6 months of no football..... Thank God I have derby!!
Saturday, February 5, 2011
On a little side note, I got my skates kicked out from under me accidentally at practice Saturday morning and landed on my left/back side and elbow. I am now the proud owner of a bone stinger right on my elbow joint! Yes I got a stinger THROUGH my elbow pad!!!! Talented?? Yes. Yes I am. Here's hoping the football players in the game are a little more talented than me!!
NOW BLOCK SOMEBODY YOU CANDY ASSES!!!

It's one of the reasons I love living here! I don't care that the temps approach double digits in the summer. That just means it's time to hit the beach or the pool. I don't care that we have hurricanes. If you can watch TV, you can get thew hell out of the way if it comes towards you. I'm not rubbing it in, just praising my neck of the woods!
You all should come down for a visit.... you know, when you get all dug out and such!

It's an away bout against the Ocala Cannibals. It's on 2/20/11.
Oh. Mai. GAWD!!!
How the hell did I let that happen?? Shit shit shit! So now I'm trying to figure what the hell I'm going to do that weekend! AUGH!! It's looking more like we are going to go up on Friday, spend the day at the parks, stay over on Friday night, go to the parks again on Saturday, stay for the B52's concert, stay over on Saturday night, drive back Sunday morning so I can catch the team carpool up to Ocala, play the bout, go to the after party, then drive back to home!!
Holy Jebus, that's a lot of miles!!!
Kyrie Elasion!(That's Latin for God have mercy for you noobs!)
