The One Thing I Dread the Most

Today I have to go to the Dentist. I am just getting my teeth cleaned, but I can already feel the scraping that is coming my way. Also the whole "You need to floss more" lecture. And the best part is my mom works at the dentist office so I have known everybody since I was 13 so there is no way I am going to escape that lecture. Julia is also going to go for her first visit today too. It feels like I am finally showing her the "real world" yet I had to convince her that even Cinderella goes to get her teeth checked out. I just hope it doesn't freak her out! So wish us luck :)

I hope everyone has a great Friday!! Thanks for reading :)

Bad Citizen

Out here in So Cal in a place we like to call Desert Suburbia, they are having an election to recall the city council. How do I know that? Well there are signs everywhere telling you how to vote. That and I get 3 phone calls a day from marketing research firms about how I am going to vote. To be honest, I have no idea what the hell they are talking about and I truly don't care. Yes, I know that is bad, but I am more of a big election voter. Voting for President, I am there. Governor of California, I am there. So I am admitting that I am a bad citizen of my town. I just hope that whatever happens we get a Red Lobster and a Nordstrom :)

My Gym

Yesterday at the gym my ipod ran out of batteries and it so sucks when that happens. I was in the middle of my Jessica Simpson workout (courtesy of the most reliable new source- US Magazine) so I didn't want to stop. It did give me a chance to observe the people there. Here are some of the few characters that go to my gym.

The Smoker Lady- I could smell her coming before she even got to the treadmill next to me. I guess I have not heard, but you should smoke 5 cigarettes before you work out then spray yourself with floral body spray to mask the scent. So gross!
The Pretty Girl- Perfect hair, perfect make-up, perfect boobs, and a tube top to the gym. I have now solved the mystery of how you can run with a tube top on- get fake boobs :)
The Meathead- The guy who in between reps and flexs in the mirror has not taken his off the girl in the tube top.
The Old Man Perv- I watched this guy sit on a machine for 10 minutes and he didn't use it at all. All he did was check out the asses of every girl that walked by.
Me- No make-up, rolled out of bed hair in a ponytail, husbands white t-shirt and Target work out pants, mouthing the words to all the songs playing in her ear, and sweating like a pig.

I now know why people spend at least $30 a month for the gym. Not only to they get a work out, but is cheap entertainment. I should run out of batteries more often :)

Thanks for reading!

Much Better

Today is a new day and things are much better today. It is amazing how a good nights sleep will just put you in a good mood. Hubby and I are better too. Amazing how communication actually works :)

So since there is nothing too much going on here- drama is gone! I thought I would leave you with my latest crush. Yummy!!

Thanks for reading and putting up with the crankiness around here!

Please pray for my family :)

Good or Bad

My husband says to me this morning "Why don't you go out for a while and I will hang out with Julia." Now this is a good thing when you have been super nice and he loves you so much that he wants you to get time to yourself. But if you have been a bitchy and demanding wife (who me?) and he says this to you this means HE wants time away from you. I do have my reasons for my behavior and yes he knows all about that. So I guess I will take the time in hopes that I come back a new girl. I see a pedicure doing the trick :)

Sorry for the little vent.

You Know When

You know when your neighbors are kinda white trash when the mom's boyfriend pulls up in a REALLY BIG red truck with fake testicles hanging off the back bumper. I am being totally serious.

I hope everyone has a great Friday! I can't wait to see what I get Googled for on this post :)

So Sad

Just when I thought things could not get any worse

Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie no Longer Friends

It must suck to be rich.


PS Sick is still here and he has a freakin' hangover. No Sleep kept him partying too late last night. Damn Cough Syrup martinis :)

Welcome Back

I wanted you all to join me in welcoming back my all time favorite thing about having a child- The Sick!!! Yeah it finally arrived yesterday and let me tell you it was missed. I mean how could I go by for at least 4 months without it in my life? And the best part it brought along it's friends Crankiness, Running Nose, No Sleep, and my all time favorite Green Boogers. I now have to go to the grocery store and stock up on it's favorite treats such as Kleenex and cough syrup. Oh Sick how much you were missed! I hope this visit is a short one since I am sure you will be back again and again.

I have decided that sarcasm is going to help me get through the day since I am stuck in the house. That and some cocktails :)

For Gabrielle

Here is the Julia's birthday cake. We went to the store and I let her pick out anything she wanted. I thought for sure it would be a Disney Princess or her latest obsession Scooby Doo, but she went for the biggest one. I always wanted one of these cakes when I was a little girl so I had no problem with getting it. Unfortunately, it was a big cake and most of it got thrown away, but it was good while it lasted.

I hope everyone has a great day. Thanks for reading!

Hello My Name is Amanda and I Cheated on my Diet

Why is it when you are going to cheat on your diet the thing that you decided to cheat with tastes like crap?? See I know the Diet Police have put something in my Entenmann's chocolate covered donuts to make them taste funky. Mind you I still ate the whole thing. I should have gone for a left over piece of birthday cake instead.


PS If you have never had those donuts normally they are so good :)

I've Got Nothing

Not too much going on over here today. Went to Target and spent way too much money again and the best thing I got nothing fun. It was all paper towels, shampoo, and cold medicine. I am going to take Jenny's idea and see if there are any questions you might want to ask me. I am not good at math some anything else is fine :)

I hope everyone has a good weekend :) Thanks for reading.


PS I will take a picture of Julia's b-day cake. It is quite a masterpiece :)

Why I Want a Wife

Last night as Jon and I were settling down to watch some TV in bed, I remembered that I needed to make cupcakes for Julia's classroom today. This was at about 8:30 pm so of course I got up, went downstairs and made cupcakes. My husband got to watch TV, relax, and by the time I was done he was in dreamland already. So I sat in bed and thought I really am a wife and a mom 24 hours a day. My husband on the other hand is a daddy and a husband till the kid goes to bed. I am not saying he isn't good at what he does, but he could have made the cupcakes right? So I want my own wife. She can cook, clean, take the kid to the bathroom at Disneyland, and make cupcakes at 8:30 pm while I watch TV. Wouldn't that be great?

What would your "wife" do for you? Now I don't have a lot of male viewers, but feel free to answer :)

Good Day

We took Julia to Disneyland yesterday and she had a blast. I think when we left she was in the car a total of 10 min before she was out like a light. I love those kind of sleeps because you know they had a good day. Going to Disneyland reminded me why we don't go that often. I am not much of a crowd/dodging people/waiting in line kind of person, but I will do it for my child anytime :) By the time we got home Jon and I fell into bed. We were done just as much as Julia was. So all together it was a good day.

Thank you very much for all the kind birthday wishes. Lori, your comment made my week- thanks. And Sassy I will totally be taking you up on your offer if I am ever in NY.

Thanks for reading!

Not a Baby Anymore

My adorable daughter turns 3 this week and I am having a tough time getting used to it. She is not my baby anymore. She talks like a 16 year old (sometimes like a truck driver) and she wants to do everything herself. I remember thinking when she was a baby that I could not wait for her to be more independent, but now I want my baby back. I miss when a water bottle was a source of at least 30 min of entertainment. Now all her toys have little shoes or 50 pieces that go along with it. I miss the big smile I would get when she woke up from sleeping. Now I get "Mommy get me some juice." I especially miss those little frilly dresses I put her in when she was a baby. Now she doesn't like dresses and insists that she wear pants. Don't get me wrong I love the little girl she has become I am just afraid that I will forget those special moments from when she was a baby. Before I know it she will be driving and going to prom :)

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Thanks for reading!

What I Miss the Most

Being on a diet the last 6 months has had it good things and it's bad. I have gone down 4 sizes and I am starting to see the results. I feel better too- mentally and physically. But there are certain things I miss so bad that I almost cave in. For example, I went to the grocery store today and saw that they have PB and chocolate drumsticks. Oh my god! I want one so bad!! I was good and did not buy them, but I was thinking that I miss having something like that anytime I want. I guess dieting does have it's benefits, but man I miss me some peanut butter and chocolate!!

What is your favorite sweet treat??

Hope everyone has a good weekend. Thanks for reading!

Does any of you watch the show "Lost"? I TiVoed it last night and I was able to watch it when Julia took a nap. I am freaking out about what happenend. Anyone want to share in my grief??


Wednesday, April 06, 2005

Yeah for Me!

I am not crazy (the thought did cross my mind) I was just majorly PMSing! So sad that makes me happy, but the last three days have sucked. They should have mandatory therapy for women who get off the pill because they are so used to steady hormone levels and then when you get off it is like "Time to be a crazy bitch!" Well that is how I felt anyway. Now I can relax and be back to being me. I have to do something special for my poor husband who stuck by me through this. I think spaghetti and meatballs should do the trick :)

Thanks for reading!


PS- Is it bad that when you were in your funk you played Barbie's with your daughter and you kinda made them fight with each other and now she is making them fight on the floor about who's hair is the prettiest??

Tuesday, April 05, 2005


I have a been a little bit of a funk the last couple of days. I think that it is a combination of being off the pill/pms/birthday let down/not sleeping/time change. I have tried to be my up beat and positive self, but the moody side keeps calling. So this morning after I dropped Julia off at school and came home from the gym, I got back into bed. I just wanted to lie there and veg for a while. I flipped the channels and came upon the movie "Funny Farm" with Chevy Chase. That movie cracks me up and I honestly feel better after watching it. They do say laughter helps so maybe that is what I needed today.

What movie puts you in a better mood?

Thanks for reading :)

Hot Mamas

So here is a picture I promised. Me (the blonde) and my best friend Summer (the brunette) She is also my diet buddy and she looked so awesome! I am amazed too at how straight my hair can get when it is burned my a hair straigtener. I have an amazing group of girlfriends and they made me so happy this birthday. Now another year is ahead of me and we will have to see what it brings :)

Other than my night out, nothing is really going on here. Have to get back on track with my diet since I went a little off this weekend. I am trying to be good, but I finding that a little slacking can revert me back to my old eating ways. I just need my head to talk to my stomach and then things will be good. It is just hard when all the left over Easter candy is around. Damn Bunny!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and braved Monday. Thanks for reading!

Where are my Sunglasses?

Remind me again why drinking alcohol is "cool"? Hey at least I didn't pay for any of it :) Had a total blast too so there was at least something good. My camera didn't fit in my cute purse, but I did take a couple of pictures of when a couple of us got ready. I will post one tomorrow so I can show you how I worked my booby top :)

Too Much?

Is it okay for a mom to show a little boob action when she is going out? I bought this really pretty top yesterday to wear out tonight, but it is very low cut. I just don't want to look like I am trying to too hard. Do you know what I mean?
