That the blogger app isn't working quite right on my phone.  I have uninstalled it and reinstalled it hoping that will fix it.   However...  I lost some awesome and funny blogs.

Stay tuned because I will rewrite them when I can...  Probably in the middle of the night when I can't sleep.  That is when I blog the best. 

Also most of my free computer time is taken up by the editing of my book....   Yup I haven't made the official announcement here, but I did write a book!!  How many of you would read it just because I wrote it even though I haven't said what it's about??????

New phone

Remember last time I had a smart phone? I worked for a wireless phone company...only the best company ever... Centennial Wireless.  They gave me a blackberry. That was a good phone. Anyway I have rejoined normal society and now have a phone smarter than me again. Good news for my faithful fans is I can blog mobilely in the middle of the night again.  Woot!

For now its DnD time!

Mobilely is not a real

Bad Mommy!

Well today was interesting.  Who would think that a hurricane on the east coast would affect my job in Indiana?  Apparently anyone that already knew our server for Internet (would that be ISP?) was based out of New York.  So weird how the world goes round when you think about it. 

I suppose if no Internet at work is my main complaint with the weather system then I can count myself lucky.  Very lucky.  And don't for one second think that I don't know how wonderful things are on my end (even if I do have cold toes right now).

My husband's game is doing pretty good.  It's been about a week in the kickstarter and we already have 25 backers.  woot!  Please- check out my previous post if you're curious what I'm talking about because if there is something that annoys me- it's redundant posts.  Because if there is something that annoys me- it's redundant posts.  Because if there is something that annoys me it's redundant posts.

Same thing with broken records.

So Rowan told me he had to go to the bathroom and we hurried in there and I noticed by the way he was sitting on the potty that it was, um, aiming up to get me.  So I kind of adjust him on the seat and assist in pointing it down. 

He didn't like that.  He screamed at me, tried to hit me, and when that failed he told me I "bad mommy."  Then he started his business and of course (Mom is ALWAYS right) didn't quite make it in.  Thank goodness I have cat-like reflexes (of course not in karate, but when it comes to bodily functions getting on the floor- yes).

I am going to need to discipline that boy.  He's got a little bit of a temper... and he isn't even my red head!  Of course you and I all know that Rowan gets all the bad stuff from his dad and all the good stuff from me.  Because I don't have any bad traits that he could have possibly inherited.  :)

The Day Has Finally Come

For those of you that don't know...  I don't imagine there are too many since I have been pretty much MIA in my blogging.  BUT...  My husband, much to my surprise, went and got himself a gaming company this summer.  It is called Fearlight Games.  I will post a link to our web page for you here:

Yeah...  Pretty awesome.

Anyway our friend Bryce is the main game designer for our first game Coffins and Tombstones.  That just went up tonight as a Kickstarter project.  If you are a gamer, like games, or curious about what I'm talking about- please check out our Kickstarter page.  Here is the link to that:

Yeah...  That is pretty awesome, too.  

I know the men have put a lot (I mean A LOT) of work into this game the past year (besides time and money we don't have- my garage, too) and I would really like to see this become successful.  Seriously- I am very proud of this little game and all they have accomplished with it. 

Of course I AM the better half of Fearlight Games so I have a particular interest in seeing it succeed.  It gives me bragging rights. 

We have a lot of other games on the table right now, too.  So please check it out, "like" it on your face book, twitter, whatever social media you prefer, and let me know what you think.

Now I'll get with the real reason you're reading this- to find out what got put in the VCR this week.  Drum roll....  A pen.  "Boring"  Actually I think that particular pen had been missing for a couple months.  And a goldfish of the real food variety.  It is much easier to manage things when it's shoved in a space slightly bigger to access.   Like his toy oven. 

What was put in the play oven?  A bowl, soccerball, and his favorite blanket- all in the same play session- together.  That oven is only about the size of my foot.  I don't know how he managed to fit it all in there.  But one thing I discovered- if it's missing around the house (keys, shoes, chargers) you absolutely have to check his oven!

That's nasty!

Like many two year olds Rowan will only eat a very small variety of foods.  One being peanut butter graham crackers and the other being macaroni and cheese.  "Mac-an-cheese!"  As Rowan proudly repeats over and over and over.

Kirby, bless his heart, is trying to keep a variety of foods on Rowan's pallet.  He decided to put some tuna in the mac-an-cheese.  Kinda like a bachelor tuna casserole.  Rowan wasn't sure about it, but he told him he would "taste it" anyway.

He said he liked it and smiled and ate a handful of bites when he decided he had enough; he was full.  He wanted to down from his highchair so he could go play.  As he's walking out of the kitchen what does Kirby hear, but Rowan exclaiming under his breath, "That's nassy mac-an-cheese!  That's nassy!"

So... Dad, Perhaps you shouldn't mess with the food. : )

My hubby is SO lazy....

My husband is so lazy.  He checks his work email at home.  He works on his web site, his kickstarter video, and play tests games with his friends.  He spends his lunch hour working on other games for his business.  He creates pieces and rules.  He does little projects around the house.  He fixes stuff and mends clothes (yes that's right people!).  He makes the bed.  He helps clean the house.  He helps cook.  He double checks the doors at night...  Man what a bum.  I don't understand why he doesn't do more.

I hope you know I'm kidding.  I asked him to give me a topic to blog and he said "how lazy I am."  Just because he's sitting on his computer facebooking (probably checking his work email again) doesn't mean he's lazy.

You know who is lazy?  The cat.  You would think that evolution by now would have given those creatures some opposeable thumbs so they can get their own food.  Then I suppose the United States would be over run by fat food stealing kitties...  Whatever happened to cats that used to chase mice and bugs and stuff?  Garry used to eat spiders for me....

Yesterday I got this storage bin out and I saw a dead spider- which was ok.  Until I saw another one crawling around.  Of course I did the mature thing.  I screamed and threw the bin across the room.  Then I made my teenage son come down and kill it for me (thank you, Gavin).  My daughter said there was another one in my hair.  Again I went the mature route and shook my head, jumping and screaming like I was in a mosh pit.  She was laughing at my hysterics because she lied- can you believe that?!  I think she laughed at me for at least 20 minutes. 

All I have to say is she won't like pay backs....

Watching the Chicken

Silence is golden.... unless you have a toddler.  Then it is suspicious.   I saw that on pinterest.  That is totally me.  So I had a lot of work spread across the table while Rowan was playing in the living room.  He was being good.  When I peeked on him he had my slippers on his hands (he forcibly took them from my cold feet) and told me the entertainment center was hot. 

Next thing I know- after there has been a bout of silence I'm digging a plastic chicken leg out of the VCR.  Yes, we have one of those.  For those of you in the younger generation (I'm sure my daughter doesn't know what that is) it's an antique where we sometimes play antique movies.  Okay so I don't think I've watched an actual tape since I lived in my apartment years ago (man that makes me sound way old)...  The VCR serves these days as a parking garage for hotwheels and matchbox cars.  AND of course the classic child's play oven (as I just experienced) is another popular use.

Larry and her identity crisis

So... I was out of state last week and since my phone isn't very smart I can't connect to the great Internet like most normal people these days.  If I could I totally would have blogged.  I had so much to say about so many topics.  Alas- I forget most of them.

Apparently my husband is the owner of a gaming company.  I'll post the link of our (whats his is mine, right?) web site whenever he gets a round toit.  Sometimes I think those round toit's are difficult to find.  Also the husband surprised me with a BRAND NEW CAR.  Okay- so it wasn't a complete surprise and technically it's not a car or mine.  Our van kept dying and since my car is a POS (and we can't fit all the kids in it) we kind of had to do it.  I just didn't think it was going to be BRAND NEW because we discussed looking for a newer (like 2 yr old) something or other.  It's okay.  Not what I would have picked exactly, but since it isn't mine and I'm not driving it I didn't really give much input except I had to be sure we got the dvd player.  Who gets vans these days without one of them?  They're only an extra $1000.  So it'll be paid for after 3-4 months.

Also I may need another part time job to help pay for this??  

I don't know if I ever blogged about my car.  I call her Larry.  I try not to, but Larry just comes out and I don't think of my car as being manly, although it may be.  Does anyone know a Larry that is female?  My poor car has identity issues.  Maybe it was because of rebelling that it is a POS (I really do love it).  A few years ago it was raining and my driver window fell in the door (that was fun).  The next year the back driver window fell.  So I have the windows held up by string and plastic.  I can't roll them up or down.  So when I drive I have both the passenger windows down and I get a nice breeze on the back of my neck.  I drive that way because the a/c doesn't work.  Yeah my car is great.

Do you ever go through a drive thru in a restaurant and get annoyed by the person who is always hanging out their door?  Yeah there is a possibility that is me.  

I know... you just wasted like 3 minutes reading about Larry.  Too bad for you.

So I will try to think of those more interesting topics I wanted to discuss and blog about them next time.  :)

another blog about poop. Does it ever end?

Ok.  Every time I see that stupid Women's Rights blog it annoys me.  So I need a new one.  I told my husband I didn't know what to blog about.  It isn't like I'm not busy with a zillion interesting stories.  I have a toddler (baby Rowan is now almost 21 months).  ...Aaannd a teenager.  With a couple in between.  Oh the stories I haven't shared.... 

My husband said I should blog about how much I love him, but I've already done that.  Plus it's kind of hard when he and his friend are talking about 2 minutes.  If you want to know that inside joke I guess you'll have to message me because it's not appropriate for here. 

Anyway I do have a good story for you.  So the other day my cousin and I are carpooling to karate with a couple of the kids when someone makes a nasty smell.  Whenever we're in the van and the kids do something rude my husband always yells at them for pooping their pants.  I must have picked up that habit because I yelled at the kids for pooping in the car in such a small space with so many of us. 

Sooo...  One of them tells me that the other really did poop because supposedly they fished around in the back of their pants and pulled out a little chunk. 

Needless I had to send a message to my cousin that went something like this:  "Hey- let me know if you find a tiny terd in ur car..... seriously.  don't touch any little brown things w/ ur fingers.  If you do let us know so we can punish if necessary... the child in question may or may not be joking." 

Well true or not the messages we sent back and forth had both Kirby and I in stitches.  I wonder if my cousin will still allow us to carpool.  Would you?

women's rights

Okay so I totally know I haven't kept up in this. I guess since I know my most important fan is gone (my dad) I kinda lost the blogging spirit. Of course there have been many blogworthy topics in the last several months.... and I'm sure I owe you an updated post on wassap with me... But I guess something finally bugged me enough for me to post.....

Now I know I'm doing a "no no" BUTTTT I copied and pasted a portion of a conversation from facebook because I seriously what to know if I'm wrong of if this guy I was talking to is a douche. I think the latter... but of course I have been wrong. Oh, and NO I won't tell you any personal information or who posted it. So don't ask.

For the privacy of the poster- who is my friend (for now until I get deleted and blocked for this) I will only keep to my specific conversation. Basically the conversation is about women’s rights and how he is sick of the government (and essentially us tax payers) giving assistant to those lazy women who keep having babies and we need better screening of welfare cases. Basically this guy (we’ll call him MIHS- for Mr. Ignorant High Schooler) thinks because he tells a woman he doesn’t want a child he can have as much sex as he wants and it’s okay because he did his part in being responsible by telling her he doesn’t want kids so if she gets pregnant then it’s all on her. My first post was in response to the initial thread- not his retarded comments.

Here goes:

Spaghetti Fields: This message isn't about women's rights. It's about anti-woman. You do know they can't get pregnant on their own, right? I don't condone paying welfare for women with 500 kids, but it isn't like they got that way all by themselves. If society should force pills and abortions on them then society should also do the ole snip-snip or castrations on the fathers. Just because the woman is the one that carries the child and is more likely to end up taking care of the child doesn't absolve men's participation in this issue. I think you'd be surprised how many people you call "friend" or a "good person" or who have anonymously helped another in need that came from welfare. Imagine your life without those people.

MIHS: Every time I had sex I ttold the girl before, "I don't want the kid, if you get pregnant get rid of it or its your problem". Though it takes 2 to create it the woman usually wants to keep it. Thus she should be financially supporting it on her own... just saying...

Spaghetti Fields: MIHS- I know you're very young so here's the real world: if you have sex and she gets pregnant you are responsible. The state doesn't care about your "feelings" on the issue. You may never be a "daddy" to that child, but it's still biologically yours and irrefutable in court. If you don't want kids then don't have sex. If you don't want your wages garnished, your tax refunds taken, or look at jail time for non-payment- then don't have sex. I think a lot of welfare cases could be avoided if it weren't for "deadbeat" dads that want to "have all the fun" but not deal with the consequences. ...and FYI the state doesn't care if you’re in high school and you have your whole bright future ahead of you.

MIHS: I know everything you said. I experienced it. I looove sex so that is not an option. I'd rather hire a hitman and take them out. ;) if it is made clear that you just want sex and no kids, then the person shouldn't be held accountable. Regardless of what the real world or state thinks. Why should your life get screwed up because a girl kept a kid that you don't even want? Something is flawed there. And I like how you try to blame "dead beat dads". The father did not force the woman to keep the child for one. For two, [poster] was referring to the women who lay on their back, have kids and don't try to work, just for welfare money. (Enter Sarcasm from me: Yeah because that is what every woman wants- a screaming baby on the hip from anyone they come across just so they can get free money.)

Spaghetti Fields (by this point I know this kid is set in his self-centered ways so this is my final rebuttal against his chosen ignorance… and you can see by all my comments I inserted here that I really wanted to go off on him, but I know it wouldn’t get me anywhere): I realize speaking with you is an entirely moot point and you will never take responsibility of your actions. I just hope that because of your ignorance any children bring into this world by you aren't stuck in the same horrible cycle of welfare that you so despise. I'm sure there are women that have children just for the sake of having children AND I know they didn't do it by themselves. If you're so anti-woman that you don't think men also manipulate the government then you are grossly mistaken because it goes both ways. As far as welfare screenings: I'm pro drug testing, half-way housing, and job placement. Deny those that are on drugs and alcohol (yes alcohol, too), and those that are approved- provide job placement and possible help with child-care so they CAN work and learn to be a productive and independent member of society.

MIHS: I was responsible by making my intentions clear. A woman being a single mother is considered responsible? (Um yeah- One irresponsible single mother doesn’t mean we all are. I was a single mom for a short period of time. I went to school full time, worked full time, and managed to check over homework and make dinner. How many would say I was being irresponsible??) That's the most irresponsible thing you could choose for your child. (You’re an idiot if you think that every single mother chooses that kind of life.) I've been with my woman for a very long time, we see eye to eye, and we agree to not have any children. (You’re in high school- what is a long time to you? 6 months?) Therefore I won't have children running around out there without a dad. If you honestly think that the genders of people manipulating the system is of an equal ratio (no it’s not equal, but these posts only focus on how irresponsible, manipulative, and horrible women are and no consequences for the men that helped them get into the role they’re in.) , then you are the ignorant one hun. (euww, don’t call me that) I understand where you're coming from (really?) and you made a couple valid points, but I guarantee most of the women on welfare are on it thanks to their own stupidity. (because the guy told her he didn’t want kids when he had sex, right?) That's what frustrates hard workers like me...

So anyway this is my drama post for spring of 2012. Hope you enjoyed and feel free to leave a comment. Yes I do approve them individually, but feel free to tell me how wrong I am if you think so.... but I'm pretty sure I'm not.
