Wimpy Kid T-shirt my Hubby made for our son

My son designed it though.  He told dad what to put on there.  At school today they had to dress up as their favorite book character and of course WIMPY KID is big in our house.  Lil Mama went as Pinkalicious but the pic wasn't too hot so I hope I can get one when she gets out of school.

Sometimes don't you just want to say F*CK IT!

Last night was one of those times but I held it in and just accepted that this is the way it is!  I'm talking about my kids school.  We had a parent meeting last night and let me see there were 8 parents (3 of us are speakers) the rest was teachers, admin, and other speakers.  We have about 170 families in the school.  We sent out emails, posted on facebook, our yahoo group, told parents face to face, and flyers.  I know (I've heard it many times) it happens at every school, I get that people are busy but I feel like damn do these parents care what is happening at the school and don't they want to know how they can make it better.  They sure do bitch enough to me that's for sure but are they there when we can actually get something accomplished. 

I spend several hours a week on school/parent stuff that I feel its like a freakin full-time job.  I'm trying to reach out, give information, and do what other parents except for the parent leaders but damn this is too stressful! 

I was very discouraged and almost started to cry when I had to talk last night because I felt I was wasting my family time being there last night.  I have better things to do with my time too PEOPLE!  But I'm committed to our school and want it to be a school where our kids can be proud to go.  I feel this past year I've been hit with wall after wall and geez Pam how many bumps in the head do I need to take before I say F**K IT! 

Sorry to be Debbie Downer today but I'm frustrated.  The good thing about this is the ladies that are on the board with me don't take it as personal as I do and they keep me going.  I'm an emotional person and take things way too serious and personal.  So I will sulk today and be right back on track.

Baby Mama Drama

Talked to my son yesterday and so wish I lived closer to him because he needs me!  Before I start I want to make sure everyone knows I don't have anything against my sons ex-girlfriend/baby mama but......damn girl CHILL OUT! 

I know my son is not not perfect and she has had to deal with a lot of crap from him but he wants to be a DAD...let him.

She is telling him that he needs to tell her everything...who, what and when.  He hasn't put my grand baby in danger, the ex doesn't want the baby around new girlfriend.  I told him he doesn't have to tell her all that stuff unless it is a bad situation and it better not be!  She doesn't tell him everything plus she has a boyfriend too so why should he have to.  They are young and will learn that all this silliness is so unnecessary.  Grand baby is the most important and if he loves his daddy and wants to be there than let it happen.

My son wants to take her back to court but she told him if he does than she will tell the court he raped her.  That's when my jaw dropped and I said HELL NO, WTF!  He started crying.  If I could just reach through that phone and give him a big hug and her a big slap upside the head I would.  I told him he has enough people who will testify that they were in a relationship and was having sex way before the baby was conceived.  Plus this is 2 years later...why has it not been brought up before but now in a threat.  Oh yeah because she is young and scared. 
Let the Baby Mama Drama alone!

http://www.etsy.com/shop/kolonclothes  Very pretty dresses- love the prints.


Pink and Earrings are two of my favorite things!  http://www.etsy.com/shop/LoreleisAtelier



Looking for something to DIE FOR....Maple Curry Cashews   They are scrumptious and YES I've had them.   I order from Mara Maples almost every month! 

I guess I'm done on Etsy today...I look on there every day and with the holidays coming up I really suggest buying from a shop on Etsy- Homemade is the way to go these days.

Happiness is....


This is my Happiness!
Part 1!


I almost forgot I had to do this but it popped in my head while I was taking a shower this morning.  When I saw what day I had to this Blog Hop I went OH NO I work on the weekends and barley get on the computer .  So in my head and the perfect world I thought I would do this post ahead of time and be already...haha as usual that didn't happen. 

I grew up with a lot of turmoil so I never really was happy until about 7 years ago when I FORGAVE people who hurt me through out my life.  My shoulders were a lot lighter and I actually can sleep at night.  My life changed when I forgave. 

I was able to LOVE and that is where my full complete happiness came until my life! 

Today, I'm participating in Jennifer from Oh So Very Me's Blog Hop on Happiness. Yesterday's post came from http://yellowrosegiftscompanyblog.blogspot.com/ check out her post about happiness.  Tomorrow please check out http://geeky-mama.com/ for her happiness post. 

I plan to do a Happiness Part 2!

My Relationship to my Blackberry

I don't know about others but mine is attached to my hip these day.  Can I leave the house without my phone?  Heck NO!  I will turn around and go get it even if I'm late-which is just about all the time.  Do I use it to make phone calls....no HATE talking on the phone.  Texting and emailing is what I use my BB for! 

My birthday is coming up and I've already hinted enough to hubby what phone I want.  I would love a Blackberry Torch.  My BB now has a crack down the middle thanks to lil man!  But it still works so I'm good until my hubby buys me a new phone (like how I threw that in).



My hubby said the other night if he ever catches me emailing/texting at 1am in the morning he will throw my phone away!  WTH....do I say anything about the endless hours of Xbox playing he does and I'm going to throw his xbox away.  No, but I've thought about it MANY times! 

I got to thinking WOW I would be totally lost w/o my Blackberry and that's scary to think like that but hey I'm honest.  On my phone I go to facebook, twitter, google, take/send pics, games for the kids when we are stuck somewhere, and of course music!  I'm sure I'm missing out on other cool things but for now this is all I can handle.

Should I be this attached to a phone...probably not but it has saved me many times over and I'm standing by my Blackberry!  If anyone tries to take (hear this hubby) my BB then we will have issues.

FlyLady~ Who Does This?

Well I'm going to give it shot!  I remember a couple years ago I tried Flylady and I was bombed with email after email and so I stopped. 

Holidays are around the corner and I'm grown enough that I should be throwing a FABLOUS holiday party...LOL!  It's all about the kids so if I'm prepared and not stressed on what my house looks like. I might actually have a FUN holiday not a stressful one. 

So I know I'm late but Fly Lady says's its OK! 

Here is the home page for FLYLADY- a lot of info http://www.flylady.net/index.asp

I Love My Hair Video



A friend sent this to me and I fell in love with it! My daughter who is 6 (going on 16) has very beautiful curly hair and we go around and around almost every day on how we are going to do her hair.

I love her hair down and free.  Some days she does too but other days I know she hates it when I have to comb thru it.  My hubby's side of the family loves braiding it and that works too.  No matter how she wears her hair- she is too cute!

She got her hair braided (sat for 5 hrs) into tiny braids because she going up to grandma's for a couple weeks and I didn't want my mom to have to do her hair everyday so this helped out so much.
This is how I LOVE her hair!  This was her 1st Day of Kindergarten

When we don't do anything to her hair she looks like this:

I'm Old

My family went out of town to visit family and I stayed behind to work.  Yesterday was a rough one at work-very busy but we got thru it!  When I I got home my body hurt so I crawled on to the bed and watched DVR shows and worked on my laptop for the rest of the night.  Very lazy and fell asleep at 10pm.  I'm old!  Back in the day I would have been at the club with my cutest outfit on with my girlfriends right there with me.  But nowadays sweats and my flip flops are my choice.  Oh what a mom!

Woke up at 5am ready for the world.  I'm able to enjoy 2 of my fav's this morning Coffee and Quiet!  Tonight they come back home and I can't wait.  One day is long enough to be away from my buggers.

Time to finish getting ready and off to work I go.

School Crap- Calgon take me away

I'm Vice Chair of our school PTA...we call ours PTC though.  Anyways, some days its just hard to hear all the negativity that is a black cloud hovering over our school.  Yes, our school has some issues but they are getting worked on and who goes to a PERFECT school anyways!!  People come up to me and want my help or just want to gripe about the school,  I want to listen because I'm genuinely concerned and my heart goes out to all the parents but I just want to shake them and tell them its not about you its about your kids!Drop all this bitching and if your not happy than GET INVOLVED or there is the door.  Somethings of course we can't fix and some issues they have I'm like REALLY your hating on the school for this- that's when I have to take deep breaths and bite my tongue.  This morning my tongue hurt!

I just had to vent that out!

Words of Me Project: 31 Days Creativity Challenge

Came across this very inspiring blog http://wordsofmeproject.blogspot.com/ that I keep going back to and so I'm going to take this challenge- even though its completed on the website I still want to do it!  I love when someone inspires me to do something outside my comfort zone so here it goes.

Day 1: Create an Art Journal for all your thoughts, ideas, inspirational quotes, etc

http://wordsofmeproject.blogspot.com/2010/07/turn-your-light-on-day-1.html

I'm down to do this!  Stay tuned for a picture of my journal...ummm I'm not a very good artist so don't laugh when I post the pic :)

Monday Mornings- Vent Again

I know your probably tired of my venting about Monday Mornings but its rough!  I work as you know as a waitress and at 41 my body hurts so do you think I want to clean up when I get off work.  Yesterday, 30 minutes after I got home from work I took the kids to the park for 3 hrs!  I was there with some friends so had a blast but that gave my hubby 3 hrs all by himself.  He cooked a fabulous dinner and did a little shopping so of course last night I wasn't too upset about the condition of the house.  But I do have to say I wasn't very happy that my son was still in the same clothes as Saturday....um you took your PJ's off and put the same clothes on and DAD you let it happen.  Ugh-I told my son to change his clothes before we go to the park and he went right in to to do that- so why couldn't hubby say that to him.  Roll eyes!

Now lets get back to Monday mornings....I asked my hubby if he good do a load (1 load) of clothes that had the kids uniforms in so that we would have something to wear- that didn't happen but I did notice that all my hubby's clothes were washed.  So had to pull out some old clothes and work with what we had- lil mama was not happy with her uniform clothing today.  Love to start Monday morning with a lot of crying and yelling.  I put clothes out the night before for the kids except for Sunday's- guess I'll need to walk my tired ass body down to laundry room do my babies laundry when I get home on Sunday's. This morning was hard on everyone. 

As for the house OMG....breath in breath out Pam.  It's not like its totally filthy but at least pick up after yourselves- that's all I ask and ask and ask and ask but no one seems to get it!  My hubby took the kids to Gamestop- the one place they all love going and got games for everyone (not me) so they all vegged out on video games and you can tell because of the wrappers, receipts, bags, snacks wrappers are everywhere- PICK UP PEOPLE! 

When I'm at the computer I can't see the mess so maybe I'll just sit here all day :)  Let them come home and see I didn't do anything and they need to help- wishful thinking but I know I'll be cleaning up soon.  Guess thats my que to go clean....wait I'm going to make lunch and sit down to watch YR and when hubby gets home thats when I'll clean. 

Okay done w/my bitching.....I'll post a better post later- just needed to get this out before hubby gets home and he gets yelled out- feel a bit better now.  :)  Blogging does help WOOHOO!

Working Saturday's AGAIN

I have very mixed feelings about working on Saturdays these days but hey got to do what you got to do!

I'm waitress at a very busy breakfast cafe and I've been working there for 10 years.  I love my job but it takes a lot out of me these days.  Not sure if its because I'm 41 or is I'm not the fittest- probably both huh! 

I stopped working on Saturdays several months ago for many reasons but the main reason was so I can be with my family.  The kids were invited to a birthday party or play date every weekend.  Love my hubby but he isn't into all those kid events so my kids were missing a lot of fun. Now that school is in and the weather is getting cooler the events aren't happening as much so why not go make money.  Money is always nice right!  I told a couple customers who live by me that I'll be back on Saturdays and they are thrilled.  They said the cafe is so different w/o me and they really enjoy it when I'm there so they will be in today. 

Here I am enjoying waking up with the kids, drinking good coffee, and writing a blog post- love life!  Then I'm off to make some money and mess with my co-workers :)

Trader Joes Ice Cream Sandwiches


Can I just say YUMMY YUMMY!  What a divine treat I had last night.  I didn't look at the calories (I'm sure its high) because I wanted to enjoy it.  Plus in my world if it came from Trader Joe's than it's all good, right?  Love my thinking but hey it gets me through the day. 

I highly recommend this for a special treat.  My husband had 2 of them...crazy but I totally understand.

Monday Morning and Coffee

I know I've talked about Monday Morning and Coffee in separate posts but today they go together.  I need a lot of coffee to deal with Monday mornings, LOL!

Saturday was filled with running around with kids to do this and do that.  My son played in a soccer tournament and wow my inner soccer mom came out!  I was on the sidelines screaming and clapping.  My son looked proud but he did ask me not to be so loud.  Okay I'll tone it down. 

Sunday I work at a cafe as a manager and its stressful some days.  Yesterday was one of them!  I come home and went right to my room.  That's where everyone hangs out anyways so I'm not closing myself off.  My husband evens brings me my dinner in there- I know a bit spoiled.  I have a hard time walking after being on my feet for 10 hrs.  I'm getting too old and also not in the best health but still get the job done- its the aftermath that kills me.

Monday mornings I would LOVE to just relax after the kids go to school but that's a big fat NO!  Every room is a mess.  Love my kids and husband but they are DIRTY.  This day is far more cleaning than I want to do but I guess that's my life for now.  I try to let them know in a very nice mom/wife voice that I don't want to be cleaning a big mess but they just don't get it.  Their "clean" is a lot different than my "clean".

Anyways, now that I bitched about the Monday Mess again- its time to get off the computer (lip out) and clean my house.  Rolling eyes too BTW!
