As Lilu would say

***Alright, folks, you know the rules. Join us all in humiliating the crap out of yourself every Thursday by sharing some completely tasteless, wholly unclassy, "how many readers can I estrange THIS week??" TMI story about your life. Or hell,bout someone else.

TMI Thursday

This happened when I was around 9, 10, or 11, I can't remember how old. We lived in a 2 story house back in Hazel Park. One of the bedrooms was on the first floor which we used as a toy room, filled with everything my sister and I would play with, just opposite this room was our bathroom.

Many times instead of walking upstairs to my bedroom to sleep I would just fall asleep on the couch watching T.V. On this one particular night my mom and sister tried to wake me up to take me to my bedroom. (From here it's all hear say, stuff my sister and mom informed me)
Apparently I got up and walked into the playroom where there was a doll chair right next to the door. I sat in this chair and proceeded to empty my bladder before I went to my bed. My mother looked at me dumbfounded and said "what do you think your doing?" apparently I looked up at her and said (in my most like your stupid voice) "going pee what else!" When I was finished I got up and went to bed.

Yes folks, I was sleep peeing!!! I don't remember any of it and to this day has never been proven to

Amber always carries her camera almost everywhere. While walking around a Meijers the other day I walked by this in the sporting goods isle. I looked, I stopped, I laughed and my daughter asked what I was laughing about. I pointed, she started to laugh and took this picture. Not too often that you see a beaver raping a

Every now and then my daughter takes a pic that absolutely catches her beauty. Who would not just love eyes like those!
They are such a beautiful blue. In some light they are very intense, and with eyeliner on it just brings them out even more.
We had a great weekend. We visited a park for a picnic, which turned out to be a lovely day there. We played cards, we bought a new game, similar to horseshoes, called Bulls-eye Washer .
Pretty fun if you like horseshoes you will like this game. Frank and I played today and he beat me by a couple points.
Today we went to the city's huge garage sale. We had never been before and it was interesting and nice...Nothing that really caught my eye that i just had to have it. But Amber found 2 more necklaces to add to her collection. One was a stone pig and one metal turtle, she got a great buy for both of them. I saw lots of earrings that i liked, but my husband said you rarely wear earrings so why buy them. I just thought "at least i would have them". But he had a point and I would put them back down. It was just nice to walk around and see a few neighbors checking out the merchandise also. The city here really does alot of nice things for us. In July they will be putting on the free concerts in front of city hall again. I can't wait. I hope they have some good ones again.
Well I'm off to make tuna noodle salad and get back outdoors.

TMI Thursday

When I was 7 or 8 "you know a young dumbass"lol

I used to love riding my bike, I rode my bike everywhere! Well, when I got chance to take a 10 speed for a spin for the first time I took it. See, back in 1977 or 1978 10 speeds were just getting popular. Well I was aloud to take it about 5 houses up and was told to come back. It was a big bike, much bigger than me. I went up the 5 houses and tried to turn it around but was not able to make a successful turn and hit a porch stair very hard!!!! Oh, i forgot to mention that this was a men's 10 speed bike!!!! Ouch...yep, right where it counts!!!

My va-jay-jay swelled twice as big and turned all pretty colors on a still hairless body part. It hurt so bad, to walk to sit, to do anything.

Where does the embarrassing part come in? Thought you would never ask. Well while recovering I had some boys that were friends and I thought we had hidden ourselves well enough to show my "friend" what I had done to myself, you know all the pretty colors. I thought we were alone. Well turns out the neighbor lady looked out and saw me showing my business to this "friend that was a boy". I freaked out and ran home, I was so scared that the lady was going to come to the house and tell on me, that i thought i would beat her to it and told my father what i had done ( he was the only one home at the time). He gave me the usual lecture, don't do it again...etc. etc. etc. It happened 30 years ago...but i remember it like it was yesterday!

p.s. The neighbor never came over and told on me.

This young lady goes to my daughter's school and I think she is an amazing singer. Last year she did an outstanding song from Christina Aguilera called "Hurt", and this year I think she knocked one out of the park with this song. Her name Uribi and I hope that one day I will see her on American Idol or something like it.


Pretty boring on this side. Work, school, cleaning is about all that's happening over here.

Mom was over for her birthday and my stupid butt did a quick change from uniform to some regular clothes without emptying my shirt pocket. Well while mom and I were at the talent show my awesome husband did a load of laundry. When I got home I was looking for my cell phone and I said "I think I left my cell phone in my work pocket", my husband said "you better not have" . My poor cell phone bit the dust, washed, rinsed, and rinsed again. NICE!! I'm glad I saved my old cell phone, I can use that until I can afford a new one.

Despite all our best efforts it could not be saved. :(

I just looked at the calendar and I can't believe how close it is until school is out. I'm looking forward to the summer. Maybe take the kids on a few lunches to the beach, or whatever floats our boats. :)

Have a great day!

Thank God she is an understanding mom!
