Why Blog? Simply put, it is cheaper than therapy!! Ha! Ha!! No, I'm not kidding here! It really does help me keep my sanity even if I don't tell you all the bad stuff that happens around here!! The name of the blog does NOT describe life in general trust me!! If the name reflected life, I might call it: Life from the Crapper, or This Bucket of Crud Called Life but who wants to hear all that stuff? Not me, so I will just say that my life is far from perfect and I have very little family around here who care because they are too busy with their own lives! Wow, did I say that out loud?
There have been several times this past week that I have been tempted to check myself into the psych ward at the local hospital just for a stinkin' vacation! I have a friend who is a nurse out there and she promised to fluff my pillow and make sure that I had all the reading material and junk food I could handle! She even said I could sleep in! What in the world is that?? It is unheard of around here unless you are the Knight or the Moody Teen, both of whom could help alleviate some stress from my life if they would just pitch in a little! I just need a 24 hour period (to start) where I do not have to care for anyone! I need to be able to leave the house without my conjoined at the hip preschooler and go see a big girl movie (one that I pick out that does not involve the mob, alien creatures, military weaponry, princesses or talking chipmunks)! I mean really is that too much to ask? And date night? Fugettaboutit! That is non-existent around here!! The Knights idea of a date is a movie on cable (one that I don't care for usually) and ordering in! The last time he took us (the Diva included) to a nice dinner was at the end of May for my birthday! Sigh..........I told him I was going to put an add in the paper for him!! Here is how it would read:
I have even tried to convince that Knight to let me take the Diva to daycare ONE day a week! It could be perfect!! I would let the Moody Teen take her on his way to school and he could pick her up on his way home! I would not even have to leave the house unless I wanted to! Of course, there would be sunny (what is that?), warm days that I would want to go to lunch with a friend, roam the mall or just grab my camera and drive until I saw something that caught my eye and then spend the day taking pictures! That would be perfect but for now I will have to settle for blogging!! Ha! Ha!
