I don’t have much of a post today.  But, I felt the need to say, I am so proud of the Mother Hen.  She have been working hard all year and has improved her math grade my two full letters.  If she continues to do this well, I think a few seasons of SuperNatural on DVD are in her future!

Random Tuesday Thoughts: Bandits, Gnomes and other things that go bump in the night

It’s Tuesday again.  And I am finally feeling a little like myself again.  So, stick around and read some randomness, then head over to see Keely.  She will appreciate you.

* Hot dogs are apparently out to get us.  They can kill teenagers if you aren’t careful.  I say we ban them from the planet and feel them to our enemies!

* The Gnome in my sinuses if finally getting his eviction notice.  But, you know how the court systems work, they still have to give him time to appeal and get an attorney.  Personally, I hope the little jerk is broke!

* I found that one thing that all three of the kids will eat.  Tortillas.  I called them my little tortilla bandits.   Bear admonished me for complaining that they ate something.

* The other night, we heard someone in the house while we were in bed.  Bear listen for a few minutes and the noise stopped.  He went down stairs, to investigate.  No one was there.  We have been invaded by ninjas!!

The other night, I am making dinner, when my cell phone goes off…

[These are all text messages…]

The Mother Hen: Hey [WickedStepMom]!

WickedStepMom: Yeah?

The Mother Hen: This is not, [The Mother Hen], its [The Show].

WickedStepMom: Oh… hi!

The Show: Whatcha doing?

WickedStepMom: Making dinner.

The Show: Oh…

WickedStepMom: We should skip dinner and just have ice cream.

The Show: No kidding!!  Let’s do it!

WickedStepMom: Okay, you go to the store and buy it, I will wait here.

The Show: Darn it..  I am broke.

We can be right…

If you are a parent to a teenager, you know one thing better than anyone else…  no matter what you say, you are probably wrong (at least to the teenagers).  And if you tell them more than once, you are definately wrong.

So, when the opportunity to say, “we can be right” came up last night, Bear had to run with it…

The Mother Hen: Mrs. [Geometry teacher] said that since I have been working so hard on my math and staying after school with her to work, whatever grade I get on my final, I will get in the class.  She wants to see my hard work pay off and knows that since I didn’t do well in the beginning, it could really hamper my grade.

Bear: How does that make you feel?

The Mother Hen: Pretty good.

Bear: Remember I told you that if you show that you are trying, the teachers will work with you?  So, maybe we can be right.

The Mother Hen: Yeah, I know, Dad.  You were right.  (Insert frustrated sigh here…)

Random Tuesday Thoughts: Mushrooms are the enemy!!

 

 

It is Tuesday. Its time for more random thoughts and purging the mental sludge that has been rolling around my brain all week. Thank goodness Keely thought of this. Otherwise, I would have to torture Bear will all my bloggy fragments. 

* Pizza topping are worth fighitng for in our house.  If you are not careful, you will end up with a whole pizza with mushrooms and pinapple.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy pinapple.  However, mushrooms just aren’t my thing.  And really, there are two members of the Tribe that eat them, everyone else pretty much screams “Eww” like a girl.  (No, Bear does not like mushrooms either…) 

* I made some pork in the crockpot over the weekend.  I added cream of mushroom soup, some garlic and a few other things.  Bear and I thought it smelled delicious.  Everyone else in the house gagged.  (Even the mushroom eaters.)  Turns out the dish smelled very similar to a dish they had eaten before and absolutely hated.  And if you have been reading here for a while, you know dinner time is very dramatic for us.  It was worse than normal.  Mushrooms are officially banned from the house. 

* My sinuses have slowly been getting better.  I haven’t had any nose bleeds in a few weeks and I am having fewer problems over all.  Hopefully, I will be able to skip surgery. 

* Cheer season is coming to an end for The Show.  She is going to have a competition soon and is hoping to make the football sideline cheer team in the fall.  She has really thrived on the sport.  She loved gymnastics when she was younger and now she gets to combine that with her bubbly personality and shout a lot.  This really is a great thing for her.  I hope she can stick with it! 

* I was having a really rough day yesterday.  I am feeling better now.  Bear is always great about making me feel better.  This time, The Mother Hen helped out too.  Its a wonderful feeling to know that you belong and that people care. 

* The Tyrant asked me to issue a warning to call teenage girls out there.  Were-boyfriends are on the loose everywhere.  If they bite you, you turn into one.  So please, protect your necks! 

Random Tuesday Thoughts: Ha!

 

 

  

It’s that time again. It is time to get all of your randomness, spew it out in some sort of coherent sentences and send it to Keely. She will probably not love and treasure it but she will atleast let you put your site in Mr. Linky, who will love you no matter what you did last night. 

* The Wii Fit finally yelled at Bear! It said to him yesterday, “Have you seen [The Mother Hen] around?  Per haps you should pay more attention to her.”  I laughed until I cried. 

* The Tyrant has said on numerous occasions that people “rub things in her face.”  While I believed her, I never actually witnessed it happening until this weekend.  The scene is my aunt’s driveway.  The issue, both The Mother Hen and The Tyrant want to ride in the front seat. 

The Mother Hen: Move, [The Tyrant], I am riding in front. 

The Tyrant: It’s my turn. 

The Mother Hen: I will get squished. 

WickedStepMom: Both of you just get in the car. 

The Tyrant gets in the back. 

The Mother Hen: Ha! See, I told you! You are too, young and I will get squished. 

WickedStepMom: Don’t worry, [The Tyrant], she has no problem sitting back there with her boyfriend.  She will not sure this excuse again.  Also, when we get home, The Mother Hen and I are going to have a little chat.  

The Tyrant: Okay, [WickedStepMom], I know you will fix it.  Thanks. 

The Tyrant knew that her sister was going to get into trouble but didn’t taunt her about it.  Part of me expected her to, especially after the way she was taunted.  I am very proud of her for the way that she handled it. 

* The Tyrant and The Show have been competing on the Wii Fit.  It’s pretty funny to watch them both fight for a high score.  About once a day, The Tyrant will shout and jump up and down yelling, “I won! I won!”  Considering that there is a 4 year age difference this is a pretty big deal.  The Show always congratulates her.

Why are you yelling at me?!?

Bear and I have been working on the Wii Fit almost daily.  If we skip one day, we are back on it the next.  I am very proud of the way we have both been able to commit to it.  The Mother Hen has not been as dedicated.  About six months ago, she was after us for a gym membership.  She has the best of intentions but doesn’t always follow through.

Now, the Wii Fit has been harassing me every day asking where The Mother Hen has been.  It is not bugging Bear about her, but its picking on me.  Bear thinks the Wii Fit hates me.  I tend to agree with him.  I think the thing has it in for me.  Seriously, it always has something bad to say.  “Your leg is a little shaky!” “You’re swaying a little!” “You need to pay more attention to [The Mother Hen]!”  This thing is out of control!  It needs to start yelling at Bear or me and Wii Fit are going to have some words!

Pride

The Show: “You owe me a penny!  You bet me that there is no Sweet Home Alabama in this song.”

The Mother Hen: “No, I said that this song is not named Sweet Home Alabama.”

The Show: “You did not! You owe me a penny!”

The Tyrant: “Look, I will give you both a penny if you be quiet.”

Wii Fit, I hate you

So, as I mentioned before, Bear and I have been using the Wii Fit.  The Mother Hen was suppose to be joining us, but that is a rant for another day.  Lets just say that laughing at others while they are trying to exercise does not burn calories…

Anyway, the other day, I was PMSing and feeling all fat and bloated.  I got on the Wii Fit and it measured my weight.  I had gained a pound.  So, it wanted me to give a reason.  Since none of the choices said “PMS”, I selected “I don’t know” because I hadn’t been over eating or doing anything crazy like that.  The following day, I got on the Wii Fit and I still had the additional pound.  It said “Yesterday, you selected ‘I don’t know’ as the reason for gaining weight.  Let’s try not to use that excuse… er.. reason frequently.”  I started yelling at it, “Well it’s not like I could select PMS, you a-hole!  I am bloated and feeling fat already, you jerk!  I don’t need you to rub it in my face!”

Perhaps. the Wii fit is not the best plan when you are PMSing.
