I Give Thanks for the Unusual

Like every year and every year before this I give thanks for all my blessings. Like family, dear friends, my work, the food upon the table, grandchildren, and all the wealth provided me and mine. Wealth can be any type of your choosing. Not necessarily money as you know, but the wealth of all things in abundance.

However this year I am giving thanks in an unusual way. I am giving thanks for those things not always thought of and maybe even possibly taken for granted. So here goes my list of unusual things.

1. I am thankful the Rug Rats mother took all the damn peanuts home to her house for the remainder of this holiday. (If you had just seen my living room floor this would be self explanatory). Picture in your head if you will "Colton's Steak House".

2. I am thankful my Trucker does housework and looks damn sexy doing it.

3. I am ever so thankful to not be able to bear more children.

4. I am thankful I have learned to say what's really on my mind.

5. I am thankful I live in the south where snow is not the main winter view.

6. I am thankful my Trucker still looks good naked.

7. I am thankful for soft candlelight when Trucker sees me naked.

8. I am thankful that there are candles. When burned they cover the smell of the litter box.

9. I am thankful for a small loss in my hearing so as not to hear the mumbles from the Rug Rats, Trucker and Princess.

10. I am thankful for air conditioners in the winter time for those power surges, hot flashes.

11. I am thankful for electric blankets for the chills following said power surges.

Last but not least:

I am thankful for my forget fullness as it reminds me I do still have a functioning mind. In all it's craziness. and

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Not just in the blog makeover for the Holiday's, but also here at home. No I haven't put out the first single Christmas decoration, nor do I intend to till after Thanksgiving. I actually am one of those people who wait till one holiday is over before starting on a new one. Trucker had MY present delivered on Saturday.

I have asked Santa religiously since last Christmas for one of these. Not a single day went by without me asking the jolly old fat man for one. I have dreamed of one at night, prayed in the early morning hours for this giant thing. Oh the happiness it will bring me. Note, this is all said with sarcasm and more sarcasm.

I have never asked for one, not once. Trucker on the other hand has asked for one. So MY present is really Trucker's present to himself. He just figures I wouldn't be as upset if it were called mine. Now mind you when I asked for the control for my present last night I was looked at with horror filled eyes. I've yet to watch a single show on it.

Wait till Christmas does roll around and let Trucker share the joy in HIS gift. Tee Hee. Pay back's a bitch!

Couldn't Believe My Eyes

As most of you know I have been very sick this week and my eyesight has been fuzzy. Thanks to one eye being matted shut most of the time. I know gross......................So when I woke up at 4:00 am this morning and was tripping my way to the restroom I thought my eyesight must be much worse. As I went through our kitchen I just couldn't believe what I thought I was seeing. I stumbled back out and back into the room again. Yup, you really are seeing it. It was hard to contain my laughter but I knew in order to take a picture of this sight I would have to control it. I wasn't about to stumble around and look for the digi camera when my cell phone was handy on the dining room table. I managed to get two pictures before it moved.

In case you can't tell what it is: It's Snowy (our cat) sleeping all curled up in a iron skillet on top of the kitchen stove. The skillet was clean and the gas burner must have been rather warm, thus it's where he slept. LOL.

Has anyone else caught their cats sleeping this way?

Happy Hump Day

Let me apologize for not having posted my Sexy Hump pictures in the last couple of weeks. I've just been in a slump, throwing tantrums and all. Anyway, let me introduce you to what I consider a Hunk to look like. He's not half naked, nor is his chest hair even showing. He's fully clothed and sexy as hell.

Meet Jimmie Johnson. Driver of the 48 Lowe's car in the Sprint Cup Series. He also just won this past weekend, the 3rd time running, Nascar's 2008 Champion. If memory serves me right, this championship has only been won one other time for 3 consecutive seasons. Besides being so sexy in his suit, and a dress suit, Jimmie and his wife don't even know her name, give much of his earnings to charities around the country. Another reason he is so cute. He's not greedy.

And last but not least regarding his sex appeal: He earned almost 8 MILLION DOLLARS this year alone. Can I marry him if he ever divorces?

Call me the "Crazy Cat Lady"

I swore after my cat "Merlin" was stolen that I would not, absolutely would not, get another one. After all after my favorite cat in the whole wide world was gone we still had Snowy the children's cat, and Babycakes the family Shi Tzu. Not to mention the neighbor's cats who live here as well. The neighbors cats are all outdoor cats and arrive at my house every evening without fail to eat. I arrive home from work about one hour before the neighbor and naturally they have figured this out. So the three of those cats come inside and eat each night with our pets. Well "Lil Bit" came in one night and refused to leave. I would toss her back out the door and so help me God she would beat the door closed to come back inside. So "Lil Bit" was adopted at that moment by me. She won my heart right then and there. If she fought that hard to be with me, then I would let her stay. Now mind you, she will never take the place of my beloved Merlin but she runs a very close second.

For those that don't remember Lil Bit was the runt of this litter. Hence her name chosen by us. She is also the only one that remains from this litter. Three of the babies died and the orange kitten "Possum" was stolen at the same time Merlin was. Lil Bit was meant to be mine.

Ok, enough mush. Call me the crazy cat lady but here's the newest member of my clan.

Warm Comfort Food

Image courtesy of Dreams of a Country Girl. Please don't be mad at me for not getting your permission before posting. Pink Fuzzy Glitter Heart Love You!

I know I have never wrote about food much other than to say we ate out somewhere special. But the weekend rolled around and as much as I hate to cook, it was necessary again. All week long my family lives off of microwave food, frozen food or what we refer to as "water and with it" nights. My schedule doesn't allow much time for cooking as I don't get home from work till around 10 pm. Oh I hear you out there saying "Well you don't go in to work till noon, so you have all morning to cook". My answer to you who think this "Poo Poo on you, I hate to cook". I've never claimed to be Ms. Martha Stewart and you will never hear me say this. Nor my family say it either.

Oh once upon a time like probably 20 years ago I enjoyed cooking and being the traditional homemaker person. And then, then I say, I grew up, screw cooking. Let someone else do it for a change. Alas, Trucker obviously did not marry me for the wonderful home cooked meals I made him while dating.

I digress here though. This weekend I needed to cook something warm, filling and so help me god I wanted something different and not the hum drum bland stuff of the last 30 years. Plus it had to last the weekend as when I do decide to cook, I ain't doing it but once on the weekends. I'm all selfish that way! I craved new and different. I remembered reading about a recipe on a friends blog and had thought how really appetizing this recipe sounded. Why not try it? What would I lose? What would I gain? Love from the family, that's what. Or hate if it turned out horrible.

But it turned out to be the best thing I have cooked in a long, long time. It melted in your mouth good. Almost better than an orgasm good. Notice I said "almost". Nothing is that good, not even chocolate. Whoops forgive me mind drifted here. OK, now out of the gutter and back to this wonderful food.

Country Girl called it "Hot Mexican Momma makes Hot Mexican Soup". Now as you all know I am for sure not a Hot Mexican Momma but I made this delectable soup. OMG let me just say "To die for". If you want to try something new, something warm and filling and something that will knock the socks off the love in your life, then please make this. Trucker is still barefoot and smiling.

Thanks for posting this recipe Country Girl. I big PINK, GLITTER FUZZY HEART LOVE YOU FOR THIS.

Pics from our Halloween 2008

What a hit my costume was at work. Everyone loved it and I ended up coming in second place in the best overall costume. I should have spoken to the father more and maybe gotten first. LOL. Also pictures of my ghouls and goblins trick or treating. As well as Princess in her nursing costume. Enjoy everyone.

Now tell me: should I have won?
