Random Thoughts by The Cake Lady

  • When you dream all night about someone asking if you shaved your legs, it is probably important to shave your legs when you wake up.
  • Taking toilet paper into the shower with you to blow your nose after the hot water has loosened up your sinuses is not a good idea.
  • It is not a good idea to go home alone after drinking too many vodka and red bull's.
  • Strangers do want you to ask for a slice of their celebration cake, it makes them feel important.
  • Tequila is the best cure for shyness.

Trash in the cushions

Is it just my house or does everyone need a rake to get the shit out from under the couch cushions? I know the piglets are messy but holy crap! Last night I was looking for the remote control and when I lifted up the cushions I nearly fainted. I vacuumed under those cushions about a month ago. And I only have the piglets every other week so everything that I saw was accumulated in about 2 weeks. Does everyone have this type of trouble or is it just me? I am seriously thinking of buying a roll of that plain white paper that the grocery store wraps meat in, and just unroll it and put it under the cushions, then every day remove the paper and what is laying on it and throw it away. Sort of like they do at restaurants and Doctors offices. I need to know where do you find the most trash in your house (places it shouldn't be).
I am just perplexed and mystified.

Today is a better day!

I finally forgave myself for my stupidity and naiveness. I will tell everyone at a later date what I did that was so stupid after I have had enough time to forgive myself to the point that I can laugh at what I did. No one got hurt (me) but I could have. Queenie and GI Joe are back and I am so happy. I realize that the weeks that I am alone that I tend to be a bit lost and lonely. It seems every man that I meet that I'm interested in lives 650 miles away. I am a true believer of love at 1st site and I think that is why I don't date a lot. I now have plane tickets and a hotel in New York!!! I'm still looking for a lesser priced hotel but If we don't find one then we will be OK. Me and the kids are leaving for Panama City October the 8th and GI Joe is just about to pee his pants, he is so ready to go. And I'm even getting a little excited myself. We are are going down with my Dad. My sister Norma Jean and her 2 rug rats will be there too. It will be the 1st vacation I have gone on with Daddy since I was 14. I'm mostly excited about the fishing. I know that I appear to be a girlie girl but deep down I'm a woMAN. I'd rather do yard work any day over house work. I think the weather also might have something to do with my mood. The sun is shining!

I can't hold my eye's open much longer

This weekend really sucked and it's mostly my fault. Friday night I could have gotten myself into a lot of trouble thankfully I had someone looking out for me. Saturday and Sunday all I did was beat myself up for being so stupid. Don't ask cause I'm not telling what happend. I haven't slept in 3 days. I plan to go to sleep early tonight so maybe Tuesday wont be so bad.

Rainy Day's get me down

I don't have a lot to write about today. It's Friday and it's a rainy day (yuck). Since I don't have a lot to say, I'll just give you a few things that you probably don't know about me. Every One knows I love Cake but I'll bet you didn't know this.

  1. I once won a contest for whistling the loudest and longest.
  2. I Don't leave my zip code unless I have a map in my car.
  3. I Love Chocolate Chip cookies and Coors Light.
  4. I Never changed a diaper before my Queenie was born. The nurse had to show me how. She thought I was kidding. She asked who had been changing her diaper while I was in the hospital (3 days) and I told her all my visitors had been changing it.
  5. I once got so stoned when I was driving the car and forgot I was the one driving and ran into a ditch. I recovered the car before it hit anything.
  6. I went to a meeting once and arrived late. I was told it was a very informal meeting. When I got there I realized that it was a very important meeting. I just wanted to sit down so I sat at the nearest chair, which happened to be the CEO's table. I sat right next to him. Everyone thought I was a VIP. I didn't even realize it till the speaker was finished and came to sit down, only to find that I was in his seat. He just got another chair and sat down next to me.
  7. I Have been Snipe hunting.
  8. I have demonic bitch cat that everyone wants to put to sleep.
  9. I hate to shower on Saturday's
  10. I am extremely mechanically inclined.
  11. I can sew.
  12. I can not cook.

Crisp Air

Good Morning all you bloggers! Nothing has changed from yesterday except the air. Summer is my favorite over all season but I must admit the crisp morning air in the deep South is like drug. All I want to do is keep breathing. Anyone who has ever been in the South during the summer know that it is so humid, that God must have forgotten to give us gills. I talked to my other sister Isabella, she is a teacher. She gave me a different perspective on this 6th grade situation. She told me to not think his failing grades are a reflection on me. The more I get stressed out, the more it will stress GI Joe out. I never actually thought about it in that way but she is right. I do see his failure as a reflection on me. I'm still going to get him a tutor and I'm going to ease up on him. If he fails then it should be easier for him next year. We can't open the windows in our office so I am going to prop the door open just so I can breath the crisp air. OH!!!!! in case any of you readers out there are Doctors. I have something for you to invent. How about a device to swab someone's mouth for strep throat without having to stick those sticks down your throat. I can't believe no one has come up with something like that yet.

I am so scared :-(

I am so scared that GI Joe is not going to pass 6th grade. I am nearly at tears (really). GI Joe is so unlike his sister Queenie. He is a good looking, caring, makes friends easily, has an awesome imagination and in some ways very smart. Queenie is all that too except the smart part comes easy for her. School has been in session now for less than 6 wks and GI Joe has missed 5 days (counting today). He just called and asked me to pick him up because he didn't feel good. I told him that I understood that he didn't feel good but he was going to have to tough it out and stay at school. He then called his Dad and his Dad went to get him. I am not upset with his Dad, if he had called me back I would have gone to get him. It's just that he has missed so much school and every time he is out he has so much work to make up. I am at a loss. I don't know what to do. I don't know if he is really sick, or he is making himself sick???? I am going to go now a waller in self pity because I am a fixer and I can't fix this :-(

I can't believe she did it.

Hey all you Mothers out there. Would you drop your 11 year old child off at a High School football game by herself??? I didn't think so. Apparently some folks out there have no common sense, or maybe I am just too strict. Every year at the opening of the 1st Huntsville High School home football game, there is a ceremony called little Panther night. Little Panthers are the boys who play football in the Huntsville High area but are not old enough to play High school football. My 11 year old GI Joe is a little Panther. He asked if his girl friend could come to the game with us. I told him I didn't mind but I was not going to pick her up. Last week was very stressful for me and the only reason I went to the game was for the Little Panther Ceremony. Anyway - I'm sitting in the bleachers watching GI Joe out there on the field with all the Little Panthers and my cell phone rang. I would ordinarily just let it go to voice mail but Queenie was down in Auburn so I did answer it. It was the little girlfriends mom, wanting to know where we were sitting. I told her and shortly there after here comes the little girl. I asked her where her mother was and she said that she had just dropped her off. I couldn't believe the woman just dropped her 11 year old daughter off at a High school football game to stay with us and she had never even met me before. I had not even laid eyes on the girl till that night. At around 9:15 I told GI Joe and friend that I was ready to go and asked the friend to call her Mom and ask if it would be OK for me to take her home. I couldn't just leave the girl by herself. The Mom didn't answer her phone the 1st 20 times that I called. I was furious. I can't believe she did that. When I finally did make contact she said she was at a bookstore, so I ended up dropping her off there.

Saturday I watched the Auburn/LSU game - War Damn Eagle Baby! After the game I rode my bike with GI Joe. I thought it would be my legs that were sore but it's my ASS! I'm going to have to get a wide load seat for my bike.

Sunday I cleaned a little (very little) and ate everything I could.

I have booked my tickets to New York and I have to get back into shape before the end of November. I walked today during lunch and might walk again tonight. Wish me luck!

I made it through Thursday. I never did figure out what I was forgetting but I panicked at least 2 times. I took GI Joe to his football game and when we got there, I suddenly became overwhelmed because I thought I had got the time wrong and had missed the game. As it turns out, I was early. Then I went to the grocery store and walked around like a lost puppy through the isles trying to remember what I was there for. Last night I dreamed all night (surprise, surprise) I dreamed about men that found me attractive. I have no idea who these men were but I remember that I was attracted to them all. I guess the weird thing is that I was attracted to all of them, I think there were about 6 men. In real life I always seem to find some reason why I'm not attracted to them.

All I want to do today is go to sleep. I am in a funk for sure. At least I don't have to get out of bed tomorrow at any certain time.

What did I forget?

I can't shake this feeling that I have forgotten something really important. I got Queenie and GI Joe to school today. I fed the demonic bitch from hell. I walked Mr. Jones. I put deodorant on. I brushed my teeth. I took a shower (didn't shave my legs but didn't intend to) I have paid all my bills. I turned off all the lights in the house before I left. What could it be?

I am working on booking a trip to New York City in December. Queenie turns 16 in December and as far back as I can remember we have planned to go to NYC for her 16th Birthday. I need some help with a dilemma about the luggage. We don't want to fly back at the crack of dawn. We would really like to leave around 4:30. But what could we do with our luggage for all that time??? Any suggestions?

Take Care and Don't forget anything!

I must be PMSing

Do any of you ladies out there ever feel like you could eat anything and everything in site, right before the curse hits? I hope that is what's up with me. Yesterday I could not stop eating and today is not looking so promising. I ate some oatmeal this morning and that has satisfied me for the moment but all I can think about is what am I going to eat for Lunch and it's only 10:00. I am not hungry I'm just not satisfied. On a good note, I have really done well with my exercising. That is probably the only reason that I am not the size of a blimb. I also feel sort of lost because this is the 1st time in 8 months that I don't have a lottery ticket to check. I need to get a hobby or something. I'm thinking of taking up ballroom dancing.

I really feel old since reading Tricks blog. I remember 9/11 very well and I also remember when the chalanger blew up.

I hope I have something more interesting to say later.

Who has my soup pot's???

Have you ever dreamed something that seemed so real that you just can't shake it after you wake up? Last night I dreamed that one of my girlfriends wanted to cook her boyfriend some vegetable soup but she didn't know how to cook, so she enlisted my help. I cooked the soup for her then we got into his truck that was so far off the ground that he had to help us in the truck. We went to his house to eat the soup. When we got there the Bitch girlfriend of his had already made some sort of soup called wedding day soup and it was white. Anyway, he took me home and promised to bring back my soup pots. I woke up looking for those damned pots. They are there but I have this nagging feeling that something else is missing and I don't know what it is.

My sister Norma Jean is going through some sort of episode and it is just about to piss me off. She shuts people out when she is having problems but never me. I am keeping Mr. Jones for her till Friday and if she doesn't call me soon, I may have to hold Mr. Jones hostage.

GI Joe was sick again last night. Upset stomach and headache. He was fine this morning, thank God!

It is raining cats and dogs right now. I hope that football practice gets cancelled tonight. That is about all I have for now. Everyone is gone from the office again and I will have to cover for everyone again. Can't wait - NOT!!!

Just plain give out!

OK - Now you know what the topic of my blog is, let's get to the nitty gritty.
Between GI Joe, my ex-husband, my job and lack of sleep. I am just flat worn out. I spent most of the weekend tutoring GI Joe with his Math. I should have just cut his arm off, things would have gone much smoother. Then Asshole called yesterday and had me thinking that the 11 year old GI Joe is going to be a drop out when he gets to high school. And even though he didn't say it, I managed to feel like this was all my fault. I hate myself for feeling that way. I believe this is the first time in my life that I would like to be a stay at home mom. I feel like GI Joe needs extra attention and I'm not able to be there for him. I know it's not my fault but that motherly thing has just crawled all over me. I am covering for 3 people that are out this week, and if any of you are in sales you will know that it's very hectic to kiss everyone's ass, there is just not enough time in the day for all those asses. Oh and last but not least, I haven't slept in 2 or 3 days.
