Well, what do you think? [and why I need to get a life]

Well... for the few of you who might visit every so often, you might be noticing a whole new look today. And before I say another word, I MUST thank Shauna. She's the brilliant talented one who with just a few color and style suggestions created this unbelievable blog look that totally hit the spot. I absolutely love it. Thank you Shauna, thank you!

And now, a little bit of realness for today:

  • I'm out of wine.
  • My husband is working nights.
  • My company just threw a legal document out to us around waiving separation package rights in certain scenarios which now means I actually need to think about this god damn upcoming problem.
  • We have four kids in the house this week.
  • It's supposed to snow and sleet all night and all day tomorrow.
  • This of course puts pretty good odds on a fucking snow day.
  • God help me if I am home tomorrow with all four children.
  • My cleaners charged me an additional $77 for mopping the floors "double" after Halloween last month and cleaning the windows on the outside.
  • Why does anyone need clean outer windows in the middle of the fucking winter while living in Upstate New York?
  • I'm on strike when it comes to cooking homemade dinners these days, even after my daughter told me our refrigerator looked "like a poor persons".
  • So I guess I can say my wine cabinet also looks "like a poor persons".
  • And while I'm at it, I might as well say that if I lose my job, everyone in this household will have a life "like a poor persons".
  • My kid came home today to tell me her Christmas concert was THIS MORNING, and NOT FRIDAY LIKE WE THOUGHT, and then proceeded to proudly announce how she was the only one wearing a pink Manning football jersey while singing.
  • And to top it all off, my husband's ex-wife returns from a 4-day trip tomorrow.
I BELIEVE I FINALLY KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO HIT ROCK BOTTOM.

Until suddenly I realize that this coming weekend is a NO KIDS weekend. Yep. That's right. It's time to get down and dirty with the hub, drink a little too much, finish some shopping, watch a movie naked on the couch... you know... all that fun stuff you can actually do when kids are not lingering around. And if we find a little time on our hands, we might even check out the a newly discovered website that was introduced to us by a dear friend - who will remain nameless for her own personal safety [you're welcome, dear friend] :

youporn.com.

Yep. My dear blogger friends, if i can give you anything, it is youporn.

However because I feel guilty even typing this site out and discussing such trash, you can google it yourself for the link. Deal???

And then, if none of the above comes to light this coming weekend, it's ONLY because I am as excited as a 5 year old on Christmas morning, staring at my new blog look, wondering how I can do it service.

Who the hell am I foolin'? Don't worry baby, since I know you'll be reading this... youporn it is!

I'm sorry about your job...you are so like me and find humor in dire circumstances...

Tracey said...

OOohhhh, me likey the new look. I have been meaning to get a new blog look for like forever. Maybe someone will give me the funds for this for Christmas.
Do yourself a favor...at least stock the wine cabinet.

Dorsey said...

Isn't it GREAT to make new discoveries online? Don't forget about xtube...just a little Christmas gift from me to you...hehehe

And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new look of your blog! I HAVE to get on the stick and fork over the bucks for one of these myself. I've entered every "free blog makeover" contest I've been able to find, and always end up congratulating someone ELSE! Ugh!

My suggestion: stop everything you are doing and get to the wine store before this evening. You can fill the refrigerator tomorrow morning!

Your wine cabinet looks like a poor persons? What, it's filled with Mad Dog and Night Train? Awesome.

Naked movies on the couch don't happen for me since I had my gall bladder taken out. It's...not a pretty thought.

Cant Hardly Wait said...

Where in NY do ya live? and since that sounds sort of creepy, i will say that i was born and raised in the upstate. and i'm actually there now.

I'm about 40 miles north east of Binghamton.

ok - sorry you weren't in the DYHIW finals, but ahem, could you go and vote for me??? I wasn't really going to ask you this way, but I don't have an email address.
Pretty please???
I'll be back later to read and really comment, I promise.

Katie said...

You know Dorsey is gonna hook you up. Girlfriend's got all the knowledge! LOL

binks said...

I love the new look!
Very cool.

So your fridge and wine cabinet look like a poor persons? Mayo and 6 week old chinese takeout?

You better make a run to the liquor store to stock up on wine to get you through that snow day.

I am afraid of the youporn - maybe I'll pull it up at work, they can afford to have the computer scrubbed of parasites. I'm with mjenks about the naked couch thing, not a pretty sight. Plus, with no window coverings, it may burn out some retinas.
Thanks again for the votes!

So...I may or may not have looked up certain links that you referenced herein last night while I was at home.

In that case, I may or may not suddenly be very thankful for following your blog from Ms. Florida Transplant's comments section.

But, before I cause anyone to go running off and pulling an Oedipus on themselves, I'll leave the story there and wrap it up with "and we all slept like babies".

Slick said...

Ah, youporn. My home away from home.

Wait...or is it xtube? I can't remember.

Anyway, I had a witty comment but you've sort of distracted me by throwing around all these shameless websites.

Or did I throw them around?

In any case....good luck on the job front!

I quit reading after you said you ran out of wine.

Dear woman, how on EARTH are you surviving?
