My crush of the month for April

•April 14, 2014 • 1 Comment

Well.. I’m a little late on the crush blog again this month.. man.. my mind just isn’t where it should be.  Okay, so my crush of the month for April is an older actor but he’s still just as cute as he can be.  I’ve seen almost every movie he’s ever been in and I personally think he is one of the greatest actors of all time!  Is he drop dead gorgeous?  No, he’s no Dwayne Johnson but his personality just shine’s through making him crush worthy!

 

So.. for the month of April my crush is..Tom Hanks!

Bosom Buddies Days.. where my love for him started.

Oh yeah.. looking good here!

Oh yeah.. looking good here!

 

Even with the gray's he's still good looking.

Extremely handsome here.

There is just something about him that makes you smile.. that makes you think that you could be happily married to him.  He is an all around great guy and role model.  So Mr. Hanks… from your loyal fan of 30+ years.. Thank you for all that you have done!

Vulnerable? Not this chick!

If you’ve followed my posts you know that I am seriously screwed up in the head, but that I’m working on getting it all straightened out.  Last week I had to go see a psychiatrist at the request of my pain management doctor.  He wanted me to see this guy because he specializes in dealing drugs out to people who live w/ chronic pain.  I didn’t realize that he was the Chief of Psychiatry when I went so when I got there and found out I wasn’t sure what to think about it, I mean.. am I so crazy that I need the CHIEF of the entire department at Walter Reed? Or, is it just this guy see’s everyone who is referred there.  Either way I was there and had to tell my life story in the abbreviated version to explain why I had chronic pain and needed his help.  Let me start by saying I was already very annoyed when he called me back into his office a full 50 mins after my appointment time.  Lets just say that waiting is number 1 on my list of pet peeves.  It always has been and the older I get the more I realize, it’s always going to be!  Within the first 3 minutes of the visit he flat out said “You are very stressed out, I can see it in your eye’s”.  Well yeah, I drove through the winter hell for 2 and half hours to get here to sit and wait almost an hour to see you.  Ya think! D’uh.

Anyways, after an hour in there he started asking me to do these breathing techniques with him.  Oh, I forgot to tell you that he found me so interesting that he a) asked if I could be a teaching case and then b) called in two of his students to hear my story.  So back to the breathing, okay so he had me look up at the ceiling, then slowly close my eye’s (which was very hard to do) then he had me breathe deep, hold my breath while he counted down from 5, then again from 10 then again from 5.  He asked how that made me feel, I told him it made my head hurt.  He asked if I was prone to migraines, well of course I am.  So then he had me do it again, this time without looking up at the ceiling.  While I had my eye’s closed he was steady talking.. “take a deep breath, make yourself feel vulnerable”.. SHRIEKKKKK…that just made me cringe.. he kept telling me.. “open yourself up, let yourself feel vulnerable”… After he counted down from the 5 then 10 then 5 again he had me open my eye’s and asked me “how did that make you feel”… I am an honest person so I said “Anxious”.  His reply was “Why does THAT make you feel anxious? Is it because there are three grown men in here staring at you while your eye’s are closed?”.  So I told him point blank “No, that’s not it.. its just, Why on earth would anyone want to feel vulnerable?” He found this very interesting.

So it got me to thinking, something I do all the time to the point it drives me insane sometimes.  Why is feeling vulnerable such a bad thing?  There’s nothing wrong with it, it doesn’t make you a bad person, it doesn’t make you anything but human, right?  Well to me, it makes you weak.  Kinda like crying, it makes you weak.  After going through everything I’ve gone through, it only makes since that I would find these things completely terrifying.  I guess it’s something more I need to work on.  Maybe one day, I’ll have it all figured out.  Until then, it gives me things to write about.

Date Night

•March 17, 2014 • 5 Comments

My husband and I try to always make time for each other and aim to have a date night at least a couple of times a month.  Sometimes our schedules get in the way the most we can do is meet at our favorite place, have a couple of drinks after work before we head home to make the dinners, feed the kids, do the homework, the housework, the laundry.. and everything else.  It’s good for couples to continue to date each other, for when they stop that’s when the romance dies, and the problems start.  Or if you already have problems, it just makes it worse.

Well lately I’ve been wanting to spice up or dates.  We don’t have a lot of money so we really can’t go to a lot of new and exciting places, and with having kids we can’t go rent a hotel room for the night somewhere and just do whatever.  So I got to thinking, what can I do that will really make his head spin, then I remembered how he reacted to the costume wig I wore on Halloween.  He kept saying.. “I feel like I”m cheating on my wife” every time he looked at me, and he couldn’t keep his eye’s off of me the whole time.  So I got to thinking.. why not let him “cheat” on me, with me?  So I bought an outfit that was out of my comfort zone, well for the most part.  I did wear jeans but only because it was cold and I don’t wanna freeze all night.  Normally I’m a jeans and T-Shirt kinda gal so I decided to go kinda biker rocker chick.

So here is my before picture…

This is me.. mild mannered (okay if you know me you can stop laughing now).. coffee guzzling mom of 2.  I love my tank’s and I love my jeans and I love my flip flops/sandals…  Now after a little dolling up, some darker make up and some new hair.. here’s the woman my husband got to cheat on me with.

Now I’m by no means someone who should give marital advice, I mean I’m a 3 time bride… but I will say my husband loved this!  He was so proud to show me off all night… he kept giving me that look and telling me how hot I looked.  He couldn’t keep his eye’s off of me, or his hands.  He loved the looks I was getting from the other guys in the bar.  It was so worth the itchy hot wig on my head!

I highly suggest anyone in a long term relationship try this!  It’s so much fun to be someone else for a little while.

The Top 7 Ways Women Lie on Facebook

•March 11, 2014 • 4 Comments

I came across an article today on the top seven ways that women lie on Facebook.  I thought “Hey.. that’d be a pretty good blog story.. and since I haven’t blogged in awhile I’ll use it”.. go me!

images

I will post the link to the article if you’d like to read it yourself.  I’m going to copy and paste the questions then answer if I do any of them. 

1.  Photoshopping photos before uploading them.

I honestly do not do this.  I dont’ know how to photoshop.  BUT.. I will do the fat chick trick to make my face look slimmer.. and I won’t post pics of me if I look old, ragged, worn out, fat.. ect!

2.  Exaggerating their career success.

Nope.. don’t do this either.. in fact I do quite the opposite.. I bitch about being broke ass poor!

3.  Only posting about exciting nights so it looks like their social life is nonstop fun . . . and conveniently neglecting to post about the nights they’re home on the couch.

HAHAHAHA.. exciting nights??? What the hell is that? 

4.  Only posting photos of their place when it’s clean.

Well.. I do try to not post if it’s a complete and total disaster, but my husband doesn’t let the place get that way so this really isn’t an issue.  It’s nice being married to someone who is a cleaner. 

5.  Only posting about the adorable things their kid does.

I try not to discuss my kids too much.. I’ll brag about something they did if it’s really great, like my son making the perfect score list on his History SOL’s.. that was pretty great.. and my daughter is testing for her Black Belt on March 22… that’s cool too.  On occasion I’ll have up there that they are now for sale on EBAY.. cheap if anyone wants them.. I am brutally honest… I love my kids to death, but they tick me off sometimes.  I really know of no parent who can HONESTLY say that their child(ren) have never made them mad, disappointed them in some way or just wanted to run away from them for at least a couple of hours.  Doesn’t mean they don’t love them, wouldn’t do anything in the world for them.. just means they are human and sometimes it gets to be overwhelming.

6.  Using old photos from when they looked better.

I do not do this.. why?  Because in older photo’s I’m about a hundred pounds heavier.. so that doesn’t make me look better.

7.  Untagging themselves in photos where they don’t look perfect.

I will untag myself if I look like a Sea Hag.. but I don’t expect to look perfect in any photo because I’m not perfect.

Zero Tolerance Policy.. Does it go too far?

•February 26, 2014 • Leave a Comment

We all know that the schools have put into effect the Zero Tolerance Policy and stand firmly behind it.  According to WikiPedia it became wide spread in 1994 and was originally instituted to be used for weapons or drugs.  Now for the most part this is a very good policy however there have been many cases of extreme punishment dealt out to students who frankly didn’t deserve it.  Wiki list examples of a student who was expelled for a year because she had nail clippers, others because they have mouth wash or rubber bands.  Where should the line be drawn?  Should it have a no exceptions rule and every infringement be dealt the same punishment?  I don’t believe it should.  I mean even in the courts every crime has a punishment that is dealt on a personal basis.  If a person murders someone in the heat of the moment, it’s a crime of passion and considering the circumstances leading up to the crime the judge will give them a punishment that he or she deems is enough.  So if the crime itself holds a maximum sentence of 100 years, but the judge realizes that the person did not mean to do what they did, he or she can give them as little as time served and probation for a certain number of years.  So why is it that the schools can’t?

A few weeks ago my sister in law posted something on Facebook that at the time no one realized how big this was going to get.  Her 17 yr old son Chaz who is a great kid, plays football, doesn’t get in trouble at school did something that was 100% by accident.  Before I go into detail let me ask you this, have you ever been in such a frenzied hurry in the morning that you grab the wrong thing?  Maybe you grab your husbands briefcase instead of yours?  Maybe you picked up your garage door opener instead of the cell phone, they are both black and about the same size and frankly you haven’t had enough sleep or coffee.  We’ve all done it.  We are all guilty of grabbing the wrong thing.  We’ve all had mornings where we over slept and now we are running like crazy, forget to brush our teeth, grab something to eat as we run out the door.  Well that’s what happened to Chaz and his family.  They were all hurriedly running trying to get ready and out the door, running a little late.  Chaz made his own lunch like he always does grabbed his drink and ran out the door to jump in the car with his mom and brother to head to school.

Now a little back story here.  Chaz drink Dr. Peppers every day with his lunch.  There is a kid in his class for whatever reason likes to steal his soda’s, so when Chaz sat at his desk in his 2nd period class and witnessed this kid walking in with a can of Dr. Pepper Chaz thought he had managed to snag his drink again so he grabbed his lunch to check.  When he opened it up fear struck through him.  He had grabbed a can of his parents beer by accident, both of them are stored in the door of the refrigerator.  It was an honest mistake and Chaz did what he thought was the right thing.  He took it up to his teacher and explained the accident that had happened thinking this was the right thing to do.  Well he had no idea just how wrong it was.  Because he was being honest and told the teacher the MOMENT he realized what he had done, he received the maximum punishment.  They suspended him for 3 days then sentenced him to  two months in alternative school!!!  THEY THREW THE BOOK AT HIM FOR BEING HONEST!  What are we teaching our kids?  It’s better to lie and hide things then be truthful and upfront?  Well his mother Christi didn’t take it laying down.  She’s fought the school every step of the way, having meetings with the principal and school board and now their story is making national headlines!

http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=news%2Flocal&id=9444938

This originally happened in a small town in South East Texas (on the East side of Harris County, where Houston is located) and the story has been aired in Raleigh NC, and Ohio.  Friends who were so outraged by what had happened created a Facebook page called Stand with Chaz http://www.facebook.com/standwithchazeden and within 24 hours had more then 500 likes!  They now have over 1400 likes!  Christi herself was on the local radio station this morning pleading their case, (I so wish I could have heard it)!  The people who are in charge of teaching our kids really need to learn that there is a story behind every case and every case should be evaluated separately and stop delving out punishments that don’t fit the crimes!  No child should be so severely punished for telling the truth.. NO student should be suspended because they have a nail file or nail clippers in their purse.  If we can show leniency to adults who commit a crime, why can’t we show it to children who make a mistake?

Help Chaz and Christi, go like their page on FACEBOOK.  Show them your support, and show the school they were so very wrong in this decision!
