Absolutely infuriating

Saturday, March 28, 2009

I don't know if any of you have heard this story yet, but you HAVE to watch this video. The entire video.



I heard the story on my morning radio show, which is nationally syndicated out of Dallas, TX, where this occurred, and I was so angry I could hardly contain myself.

If this is not video proof of abuse of power, I don't know what is.

Don't get me wrong, I completely support the police and believe that they protect us and for the most part, this doesn't occur. But, this... this is outrageous!! This man should be fired!

Ryan Moats did everything in his power (that we can tell from the video) to be as safe as possible on his way to the hospital to get his wife and other relatives there to see his mother-in-law before she died. Yes, he ran a red light. Yes, that is illegal. Give the man a ticket outside of the hospital room so he can see his MIL BEFORE she dies.

But, this moron decided that it was his obligation to hold these people and then preach to them about their attitudes in this situation.

I'm sorry... but this disgusts me.

"My Husband Rocks" Friday

Friday, March 20, 2009

So last week I went to the gym with Joey. I had forgotten to take my workout stuff with me to work. I usually go right after work, but when I forget my stuff, then I become a complete and total slacker and just won't go. This time, I decided to just go with Joey.

I actually love working out with Joey - for several reasons.
  1. I get to watch him lift ridiculously heavy weights, then put them down and go get my weights for me. This makes laugh - out loud - because I know they must feel light as a feather after what he's just lifted.
  2. I get to laugh at the funny faces he makes when he lifts those ridiculously heavy weights. (Hey, at least he doesn't grunt!)
  3. I get to laugh at all the steroid induced men that think they're so cool, and thank God that my hubby is not one of them.
  4. I get to laugh at the guy that wore those gray 1980's workout shorts and the fanny pack to the gym - and was TOTALLY serious about it.
  5. I get to laugh while Joey is making me do this RIDICULOUS ab workout on the tricep machine because he put so much weight on it that I could barely pull it down. I'm sure it's not because I was laughing....
  6. Oh, and I get the best freaking workout of my life and can't move for the next week.
Yeah, there was a lot of laughing. Joey hates it. He's all serious about his workouts. But he puts up with me... and even smiled once in a while.

Maybe that's why he worked me so hard. To get back at me for all the laughing.

Love you baby!


Chillin' with dad

We've been looking for furniture for the office/den/whatever you wanna call it that Joey cleaned out and repainted upstairs the week that he was jobless.

We were at Target last weekend and Joey sat down to check out this sectional. I came around the corner to find this.


Then, of course, Taylor immediately switched gears into his silly self. He just can't contain it.

Gotta love 'em. Both of them.


Wii had fun

Monday, March 16, 2009

Saturday we went to our favorite restaurant with some of our favorite friends, Rich & Susan.

And by restaurant, I mean Buffalo Wild Wings. But hey, when you need some wings, they have the best. We ate ourselves into oblivion and laughed A TON, then decided to take that wild party (LOL) back to our pad to play Wii Sports.

Some other friends, Wayne and Nanci, met us there and we had a blast!

Nanci, Susan, and Me

We started out with bowling, because most of them had never played before.

It wasn't long before Nanci was done with bowling. She's pretty competitive so she wanted to beat someone at tennis - which, unfortunately didn't happen, I don't think. In fact, I think her hubby beat her sitting on the couch, but it certainly wasn't for Nanci's lack of, ummm... enthusiasm.

Then she was on to boxing. Nanci cracks me up! She is one serious Wii player!

I have to say, I'm really enjoying the Wii! The kids love it, but it's so much fun for the adults too!

Just ask Nanci. LOL


Who knew there was no football in basketball?

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

I got tickets to last nights Spurs game from a vendor. So we pawned the kids off on Joey's mom, which wasn't hard.

We're spoiled, I know.

We have nothing against the Spurs themselves, but who knew there was no football in basketball?

Needless to say, this was the highlight of our night:


It was the Spurs Coyote, but not in his usual "get up". He was in a blow up suit and came out to show us his dance moves. I about wet my pants when they started playing "I get knocked down, but I get again" and he threw himself on the floor and got back up - again and again.

Seriously. It was the funniest thing I'd seen all week.

And remember, I live with Joey. So it HAD to be funny.


Monkeyin' around

Monday, March 9, 2009

Lately, Taylor has been ALL boy.

Don't get me wrong, he's always been all boy, but lately, it's been nothing but scrapes and skinned knees and bruises.

Falling down while riding his bike. Hitting a curb on his Heeleys. Just one thing after another.

So a cut on his hand after this adventure was all but expected.



I'm just thankful we haven't had our turn to the emergency room. YET!

Everyone keep praying!


"My Husband Rocks" Friday

Friday, March 6, 2009


The last week or so has been a little strange.

Joey lost his job about a week and half ago, so there was little bit of stress. But I have to say, Joey was the greatest. The morning he was let go he came straight home and I think he had multiple interviews lined up by that afternoon.

Not to mention he's had dinner on the table every night when I got home from work.

He's steam cleaned the carpet upstairs, cleaned out the playroom (which inadvertently had become just a junk room), made multiple runs to Goodwill, become close friends with Craigslist... I've been spoiled.

But all of this is coming to an abrupt end. Joey accepted a job offer yesterday.

(Pause for screams of joy.)

I can't say that I won't miss the dinners and the clean house. But I will be extremely grateful for the paycheck.

Losing a job is never easy, but Baby, you took it like I've never seen anyone take it before. You're my hero. I mean it.

I love you with all my heart! Wishing you all the best in your new job. You have all my support and respect...

Your wife ~

Chicken humor

Thursday, March 5, 2009


Taylor was fixing his hair this morning in my bathroom while I was getting ready.

When he finished, he walked out of the bathroom and said, "I'm a chicken. I'm done! Only chicken's get done!"

I died laughing. Almost burnt myself with the flat iron.

Please tell me where he comes up with this stuff?

I love this boy more than life itself. He makes me laugh all the time.

He is his father's son.


"Are you insane?"

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

"You psycho, moronic, ridiculous, crazy a** son of a b%$&!!!!"

(Sorry, I usually don't talk like that. I was channeling Molly. Or hoping to.)

That's what I seriously thought Molly was going to say to Jason last night on The Bachelor.

That's what I waited through an entire commercial break hoping she would come to her senses and say to Jason.

But no. She didn't.

Instead, she thinks that some guy who mugged with 20-some-odd girls for 4 weeks, and told them all at some point or another the he was falling in love with them, and then dumped them all one by one - and then dumped HER for another girl just 6 weeks ago, but now has CHANGED HIS MIND???

ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME???

Oh, and let's not forget the girl that was just dumped on that couch 5 minutes before.

Don't worry, Molly, your turn is coming. But it's ok. You go ahead and go for that cup of coffee. Go ahead.

Seriously, this show is a joke.

There has been one couple to make it out alive from this show - and I'm really beginning to doubt the validity of Ryan and Trista.

Give me a break, Jason. I wouldn't date you if you were the last man on earth and the entire human race depended on it.


The Home Depot High

Monday, March 2, 2009

We don't usually spend our date night at Home Depot, but earlier on Saturday, Joey had gone to buy a replacement part for the upstairs toilet and new drip pans for the stove burners.

Of course, when he got home the drip pans didn't fit, so after dinner we went back to exchange them.

This is what we saw as we were leaving the "drip pan" aisle.

Seriously? Craper & Pad Combo? In the midst of our intense laughter - and I do mean intense - Joey did manage to find the "S".


There's something about Home Depot and men. The store just makes them crazy.

When we first walked in, Joey wanted to buy a $1500 riding lawnmower.

We own a garden home and he currently cuts the entire lawn - front and back - with his weed eater in less than 30 minutes.

As we were about to check out, he remembered that the dryer vent had a hole in it so he wanted to get some duct tape. We found the duct tape and he grabbed 2 rolls. I asked him why he got 2 rolls and his answer? "I haven't had any duct tape in a while. I've been deprived. I just want some duct tape."

Really? Is this a male need?

Then he tried to convince me that we needed some heavy duty cleaner.

I had to get him out of there. I think the place is drugged. Look at him.

He's clearly on a Home Depot high.



let's get acquainted

Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family.
