What Will Today Be?

Manic Monday or Not?

Only time will tell today.

We went away for the weekend to celebrate the being of 80 years young for this lovely lady.

My grandma. My childrens only Great Grandma.

Every moment spent with her and my grandpa is a moment cherished. By me anyways. Hopefully my little shits of children will appreciate it when they are older. Right now if it doesn’t include gaming devices, food (they want to eat), t.v or some sort of child activity it’s just labeled as “boring.”

80 years young….I sure I hope I  make it there it. Well depending on the condition. They are Happy, Overall Healthy and they keep on keeping on as always! Always smiling. It’s very refreshing to be around them. With their quick wit and humor, the love they have for each other and all of us it’s hard not to smile when you’re around them.

My kids and I got to spend the night with my mom and reek havoc for her neighbors. Staying up late and being super loud where there are neighbors right next to each other is something my kids aren’t used to but it was something they definitely enjoyed!

Now that we are back home after being gone we shall see what kind of mess and madness the ranch has in store for us. Not mention it’s bill paying day, school day and karate day. What kind of Monday we will endure.

A Manic Monday or Not?

Reasons Why I Don’t Answer My Phone

I hear the endless buzzing and I see it lighting up but I don’t reach over and answer my phone. Yes, I am a horrible person. No, I don’t want to talk right now for whatever reason. You know this is true for you too!

Let me give you a few reasons why I don’t answer my phone. They might even sound familiar to you.

I’m on the other line with my husband or with anyone else that’s not you that’s calling right now. Bummer for you. Maybe I’ll call you back.

Sometimes I don’t have my phone on me. I do run a ranch and as of late this place isn’t a Little Patch Of Heaven. It’s hot as hell with a ton of work and I can’t walk around with my phone attached to my face while climbing in and out of pig pens, distributing 250 lbs of feed around here, cleaning pens and climbing up the silo to loosen feed. Sorry I missed your call.

I’m having a real conversation. In person. To someone else. And it’s rude as hell to answer your phone while doing so. Such a bummer I have some manners. Last I checked my phone does not say “Excuse me, may I please interrupt?” No you may not!

This one is gonna hurt….I might just not want to talk to you.  Yep. Just maybe.

My kids have my phone. They are playing games on it. They see you calling and know how to ignore calls. They don’t even bother to tell me because then they know they would have to give up the phone and they sure as hell don’t want to lose their progress on Angry Birds Go! They do however answer it if it’s Daddy, Auntie Ren or Grandpa. You guys should feel special.

I lost it. Yep I misplace my shit. I’m only human. Then I run around looking for it like a mad woman yelling at my kids to help me. Only when I find it and see who has called I don’t really care (unless it’s Travis…sorry people) and I probably won’t be calling people back right away.

Sometimes I’m doing something important that’s not ranching. Like paying the bills. And if I answer the phone it’s going to throw me off, screw my shit all up and I’m going to pay the wrong amount for the wrong bill or just skip a bill. It has happened and I’ve learned my lesson. No phone during bills!

There’s a ton of reasons: I’m going potty. I’m in the shower. I didn’t make it to the phone in time. My ringer was off. I’m at karate watching my kids.(I don’t answer my phone there, I turn the ringer off and ignore you all!)

Sometimes it’s better to not answer your phone and have some moments of peace. At least from your phone because if you have kids or animals you aren’t getting any peace!

Any of it sound familiar? I thought so!

Fabulous Friday!

It’s a Fabulous kind of Friday!
That’s what my 5 year old is calling it and I’m going to jump on her wagon and join in!
Reasons for feeling Fabulous on this fine Friday!!!
I had a FABULOUS nights sleep last night. No kids waking up or in my bed! A full 8 hours! SCORE!
It’s Friday! Just being Friday is a good enough reason to feel Fabulous!
I woke up and got my work out in super early. Always makes my body feel Fabulous!
After my workout and getting ready I check my blog status on Top Mommy and am overwhelmed with the love and support I have from my readers! You guys rock and make everyday Fabulous for me!
Another day on the ranch getting stuff done is another day building our lives. Not just living them. Making it Fabulous!
My kids get to have their friends over today. They have friends to have over! So they must be likeable…right? That’s fabulous!
I’m always trying to look my best even when I’m covered in pig shit. (which I will be later) But feeling like I look good makes me feel Fabulous!!!
Not every morning things go super smooth. Sometimes shit is chaotic with screaming kids, barking dogs, fighting chickens and just stupid shit. But today things are mighty fine indeed! I’ll take that as today is going to be FABULOUS!
As my day continues to be fabulous I hope yours is just as fabulous as mine if not even better!
Have a Fabulous Friday!

Signs Your Son Is Entering Puberty

This is some scary shit. Every time we go see the therapist she is asking me if he is starting to get hair places. I have no idea and start to panic! Could it really be that time already? For god sakes the boy is only 10. Yes he acts like a major teenage pain in the ass but come on. Puberty already!? I know girls have been hitting it far earlier than they ever did when I was growing up so I guess the same has to be for boys.

There are some signs I have picked up on that I thought I’d share with you as a public service. You’re welcome.

1. My previously energetic early riser all of a sudden wants to sleep until noon- That doesn’t make him any better of a morning person and I’ve had to be sure to set his alarm because he will “forget” to.

2. He Stinks!- And he knows it.  His bedroom all of sudden started smelling and it’s always clean….it’s just his “smell.” His stinky gross smell!

3. He actually cares how he smells- Since he knows he stinks he’s all into using dads super expensive cologne and deodorant. And he doesn’t fight me anymore to brush his teeth.

4. He wants to eat everything- He’s kind of always like this but he has been more like this in the past 6 months or so and it’s not going away. And I mean EVERYTHING!

5. Everything I do embarrasses him- Every little thing. Every move I make, Every breath I take. He will be telling me to stop. Going in for a hug is like negotiating a hostage situation.

6. I’m pretty sure all the time in his room spent “reading,” he’s not actually reading- This is just too shitty to even contemplate but you know this shit happens. I have 2 brothers, I know for a fact it happens! Once you walk in without knocking, what you have seen can not be unseen!

There are many surprises ahead for all of us that have boys heading into their teenage years. And if your boys have similar behavior to mine….Don’t forget to knock!
