Whoopsy Daisy

1. Is it the movie Notting Hill where Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts are trying to climb the fence, he slips and says, "Whoopsy Daisy!" OOooooh, one of my FAVORITE Hugh Grant scenes EVER, and I have seen a lot seeing as how my husband seems to LOVE all movies he is in!

2. I am so excited for Jackson to start school next week. I contacted one of my friends who has kids in the school already, and she said that the teacher Jackson got is the most coveted Kindergarten teacher in the school. What did I do to luck out like that!

3. I am so NOT excited for Jackson to start school next week because it means that Tyler and I will be alone in the house again! Once they worked out all their kinks at the beginning of the summer, they started playing really well together, and I know she is going to miss him terribly, which leads to more whining, neediness and all around girl drama!

4. I had the most random interaction at Walmart yesterday! The cashier was telling me all about how she needed to wait for her husband's bonus check before she could do her son and daughter's back to school shopping, so they had to wait until September before they would have their supplies. In the same breath, she proceeded to say, "Before you know it, it will be Christmas! Just be happy your kids are still young, mine are 14 and 11!" I HATE WHEN PEOPLE SAY THIS BECAUSE I LIKE TO LIVE IN MY HAPPY PLACE WHERE THINGS GET EASIER AS MY KIDS GET OLDER! So I told her this, and she said, "Well my son wants a PS3 and flat screen TV for Christmas!" I swear I looked at her like she had five heads because she just continued. "Well, my daughter got a flat screen for Christmas last year, so now he wants/gets one!" I am pretty sure my jaw was on the floor at this point. I just couldn't get this conversation out of my head all day!? (1) How many flat screens do they have in their home? (2) I am THIRTY, and I don't have a flat screen in my house, and my sister has two, but I am still ALIVE and WELL! (3) Do they want to adopt me because apparently getting a flat screen is a rite of passage in their house, and I really want a flat screen!

5. Seriously, I don't understand how people wear colors here in the summer. I was so worried about sweating through my royal blue shirt yesterday, that I am sure sure sure it was causing me to sweat more while in the little shack of an area that JC Penney calls the shoe department! OMG, it was so hot, and they were rearranging! REALLY not smart the week before school starts. It was ridiculous in there!

6. I always think that laundry in the summer will be better because there is less of it, but then the pool towels seem to procreate before my eyes!

7. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Rachel from Big Brother. I just can't help but love her. When she speaks, I just think, "People really don't talk like this!" I keep waiting for her to stop putting on this big show and speak normally! I laugh when she bobs her head, I laugh when she speaks, I just keep laughing. AND what happens to these men when they enter the house relatively intelligent and fall for these totally moronic women (Jeff and Jordan, Howie (although he had his issues, I don't think he was as dumb as he was portrayed) and Janelle, and now Brenden and Rachel)! How do we survive all year without Big Brother!

8. I love Roberto (The Bachelorette)! Do you think Pat will learn how to speak Spanish and whisper sweet nothings in my ear!? YUM!

9. I have to go to Target today, and I am putting it off, but I know I shouldn't, it will just get hotter and hotter! YUCK!

10. I am LOVING the new show Covert Affairs!

1. Joe and I love that movie, and that is one of our favorite parts. And when I originally saw the title of your post before I read more, I immediately thought of Notting Hill.

2. B doesn't start school until the 31st and I AM DYING!

4. I hate when people say, "Just wait ..." and I try so very hard to not say it to other people. Although the older B gets the more I see how challenging it gets with each passing year. L is so easy right now, but I know she'll eventually be going through all the whining and contrariness that B does right now. And for real with the flat screen TVs! We have ONE TV in our house and it happens to be flat, but it's the only one in our house.

7. I'm totally Team Kristen. Rachel drives me nuts, although she might end up growing on me. I hated Jenn from years back but eventually she just got really funny.

One more thing about Big Brother ... Something that annoys me more than Rachel is Kathy's eyelashes. They look like big, furry spider legs coming out of her eyes! So ridiculous.

Please understand why I am leaving the message I am. I know you relish pissing people off, but I believe that is just a cover. You are an absolute joke! Get a life!!! All you think about is reality TV, food, drink, and being deprived because your kids interfere with your time!! What a mother!! You are so, so shallow!! I read your blog because I need to understand why this country is in the state it is ... you epitomize the reasons!! It is all about YOU!!

WOW, if you feel the need to be rude and judgmental...at least have the balls to do it under your own name and not Anonymous!! The point of a blog is to voice what is going on in your life, a way to vent. If you don't like what she writes, then stop reading it!!!!!!!

To Autumn: That is the point .. the blog is a forum to voice what is going on in her life and vent!! She would do herself a favor if she got life in perspective and put as much energy in doing for others as she does venting about her life. I would guarantee there would be far fewer entries on her blog of "not coping' or 'going to lose it' if she did. It was not my intention to be rude or judgmental, just wanted to express my observations. Thank you, Susan
