I am weak...

So, I felt pretty good writting that "Open Letter to Junk Food" thinking it would motivate me to cut back on the junk food intake.....Fail.  My affair with food that is bad for me continues.

An Open Letter to "Junk Food"

Dear Junk Food, We've had a good run.  Over the last few months, I've eaten as much of you as I can handle.  You're starting to stick around on part of my body that I would prefer you didn't.  So, because of that, we have to end our relationship.... I'm not saying we can't see eachother anymore, but we're really going to have to limit our contact.  I'm sure we'll still see eachother at birthday parties... maybe a dessert every once in a while, but, the afternoon meetings, the evening snacks... they have to stop.  I'm sorry.  I'm sure you'll find someone else to fill the void. Sincerely, An overtired (and a few pounds heavier) mama

My Dream Job

So, as I take a quick break from my "real" job, I was thinking about what my "dream job" would be.  Unfortunately, unless there is a job that exists that would involve watching trashy reality shows and telling people what I think while playing around on Facebook and Twitter..... I'm not really sure a "dream job" exists for me.  So, if anyone hears of a company looking for my opinion on reality tv... let me know. :)

Another Reality TV Post - Big Brother

So, I admit, I love Big Brother... maybe that's a bad thing.... if it is, I don't want to be right. But this season of BB is making me question my love for the show, for a few reasons: 1 - Rachel - I could go on about this girl for days... her and "her man... the crying... pouting... all of it!  It drives me crazy.  She could, quite possibly, be the most annoying reality tv personality I've ever seen (save for the girls on "Flavor of Love" and "Rock of Love").  Who is this girl?  Where did she come from?  Is she for real? I mean, we know the boobs aren't real (as she's mentioned about 50 million times), but I mean the way she acts.... is this just for the camera or is she really like this?   I used to think "there can't be anyone who really acts like this", but the more I watch her...the more I think she's just an idiot.  Now, before people start telling me about her educational background.... I realize she has a degree

Bachelor Pad

So, I'm pretty sure this show is the  most ridiculous thing I've ever seen, but, I can't look away. Multiple observations:  - Vienna bothers me.  She did during Jake's season... and this just re-confirms for me how much I dislike her.  "I'm not in this game because you aren't protecting me"... what?  Her boyfriend's talking to her the whole time, then she throws out "I feel ignored"... what more do you want?  Do you want him to hump your leg?  Shut up Vienna. - Why do so many girls say "literally" so much?  I feel like it could be a drinking game... a drink everytime someone says "literally"... or even better... take a drink everytime someone cries. -So this Justin "the wrestler"... he didn't really bother me so much when he was on the Bachelorette...  I mean, I didn't like him, but I didn't hate him.  But I notice he's trying to come in as the "villain"... so, is this becaus

Quotes from around my house

After spending the entire day taking care of and cleaning up after my daugher (who is in a "tantrum about everything" stage).... My husband: "In case you didn't notice, I did the dishes." Me: "I noticed.  Thanks" My husband: "Well, you didn't mention anything about it, so I thought I would point it out" Yeah, thanks.  Do you want me to point out everything I did today?  lol

Looooonnnnnggg Break

So, I've been away from the blog for a very long time... obviously.  Was it because I was doing something exciting?  Sadly, no, I was just lazy.  I went back to work, and was too tired to do anything when I came home from work, as my daughter was still not sleeping through the night.  She finally started sleeping through the night 5 months after I went back to work.  Thank goodness!  Then I decided with my extra energy I would become a Zumba instructor!  So in addition to my regular job, I teach Zumba fitness classes 2 nights a week. Anyway, that's enough for this boring post.  I'll be posting a little more frequently now.  Hopefully.

Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my blog! Why would you want to read it?  Or why do I think people want to read it?  Who knows?  I'm overtired, so I think everything I say or think is interesting, so I thought "why not post it on the internet for random people to read and criticize".... because I'm like that. First random thought - You know how people always say "why does everyone think they deserve their own show" when referring to some reality tv star?   It's because they can get their own show!  Obviously!  That's why we're watching them, and that's why other people are watching them, and that's why their show is still on the air!  I heard someone say that the other day about the Jersey Shore.  Here's the conversation I eavesdropped on: Girl 1 - That show "Jersey Shore" is so stupid.  I don't know why people think they deserve their own show. Girl 2 - I know, they're all idiots. Girl 1 - It's so stupid, in last night's
