Cleaning Peeps Cancelled Today....

I guess that means, I have to clean my own house........ the GYM!

So, I'm all decked out in my athletic gear (Nike pants, a t-shirt from some run, and a SWAT hat from work), and I'm trudging away on the elliptical at 24 Hour Fitness this morning. I'm minding my own business listening to my i-Pod while watching the tvs.

Out of the corner, I see this couple totally making out. They were all over each other. They were on the machines, then they started walking around groping each other. I gave them the yuck face.

Seriously, the gym was busy. People get a room. You're gross! Have some respect.

Dear Angry Toddler

I know that you are 33 months old now. Which to most people means, you're almost 3. You are a big boy now. But there is one thing, you have not mastered....the potty. Angry Toddler could you please learn to use the potty. You are wearing a size 7 diaper now. Did you know how hard it is to find these diapers?

Mommy went to two Targets today to look for diapers for you. She finally found them and bought the last 3 packages that they had. Umm, these should last maybe a week?

Plus, mommy loves Target and she spent another $75 in addition to the diapers that she did not have to.

Maybe we could make this your birthday goal? We have 3 months still?

Best Looking Blog - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more

Woo-hoo!! I'm an award winner. I was awarded Best Looking Blog of the Week by the Gals at MDU

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who nominated me. I really appreciate it.

I will try to blog some more, now that I have some time!!!

Athena's First Birthday

Yesterday, we attended one of my BFF's daughter's birthday. Ruth's daughter, Athena was turning one. Ruth always makes her kiddos b-days a special event. I took my Nikon to the party yesterday. I rarely lug that camera around anymore, but since I knew we would be inside, I brought it. I also attached my slave flash to it, since her house is soo dark.

It's hard as a parent to organize everything, and get pictures of your event. I know, believe me, I've been there. So I knew that I could take about 200 pictures, edit them, and then just e-mail them to my friend.

Here are a few pictures, I took.

Angry Toddler Disguised as a Tiger

While trying to chat with the Drama Mama's.....

Friday night, I was able to log in for a chat with the Drama Mama's at MDU
... Angry Toddler did the following:

1. Asked to go potty.
2. Wanted a bath.
3. Didn't want a bath.
4. Wanted jammies on.
5. Handed me a poopy diaper.
6. Wanted different jammies on.
7. Wanted some milk.

Seriously, the kid rarely bugs me for these things when I'm just surfing the web. Why did he know to do this while I was involved in a chat.

Angry Husband was still at work while all of this was going on.

Drama Mama's, I did enjoy the chat though. It was nice to get to know some of you better!

Friday was a Good Mail Day!

What is a good mail day? It's a day when goodies and packages come in the mail. I got two packages that I was waiting for. I received my Amazon order and an Endless order.

In my Amazon order, I received the following books:

falling out of fashion
Someday My Prince Will Come
shoe addicts Anonymous

I found all these books through various sources. I have a wish list on Amazon, which helps me keep track of the books I want to buy/read. I read about one book every week.

In my Endless order, I received two pairs of shoes for Angry Toddler. He just had another growth spurt and now wears a 9.5W. The kid won't be 3 until May, eek. I love Endless because they have next day delivery for FREE.

I'm sorry my Midwestern Friends

I'm sorry that I live in California, and you live in SNOWVILLE USA. It's rainy and cold here today. I want to curl up with a blankie and sit on my couch. But Noooo, I'm sitting here at work, going in and out of the building, driving around in this weather.

So I start my bitching to my friend Shannon, whom lives in BFE Iowa. I complain about the weather and how I'm cold. She laughed at me. I told her it was like 50 degrees. She was like, um 0 degrees is cold here, 50 is warm weather for us right now.

I can't even imagine. I hate being cold. I hate cold weather clothes. I can't wait to run around in shorts and flip flops.

I'm sorry My Midwestern Friends who are sitting in their houses, because they have fricking blizzards outside and can't drive around.

My new baby!

Isn't she pretty. She's a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop. Angry Husband got it for me for Valentine's Day.

She arrived on Monday. AH set it all up for me when I was working. I was soo surprised when I came home and found that it had been delivered. I also ordered a pretty pink mouse to match.

Angry Husband and I have been fighting over our home computer alot lately. He is playing this computer game, Tabula Rasa, which he is totally addicted to. He's not quite World of Warcraft or Everquest addicted, but it's getting close.

I haven't had much time to play with "Pinkie" yet, but I'm going to try more over the weekend. I've been starting to save my bookmarks and things on it.

Hopefully, I can start blogging more since it has wifi and I scouted out all the wifi sites in the city I work in.

Neglecting my Blog

I've been a bad blogger the past month. First of all, I was on vacation. While I was on said vacation, I fractured my ankle.

I've realized that I need to start working out. So I've been going to the gym and also using my treadmill in the garage.

I've actually had tons of things go on, which I could blog about. But literally after dealing with Angry Toddler, eating good, and working out............I'm exhausted.

I went back to work last week, so I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.

I've also seen some movies recently. I will blog about that too.

I'm going to try and do some entries tommorrow when I'm at work. Cause unless some big crime happens, I will have nothing to do.

Chat with y'all later!

Work Vent!

Ugh, yes today is a Holiday. But alas us law enforcement peeps never close for business.

Well City Hall sent out a memo that they were shutting down the water in the entire City Complex all day long. The e-mail stated, "Since most people are off on Monday, it won't affect many people".

I drink alot of water. I will have to go to my mom's house or the mall to use the bathroom, ugh!

Kiss It!

Angry Toddler was running around like a crazy man. He hit his back/butt area on the front door knob somehow.

He ran over to Angry Daddy. He then bent over and told Angry Daddy to "Kiss It, Kiss It Daddy!"

Angry Husband said, "I'm not kissing his butt". I said, "Just do it, it's part of you're job!"

Update on the Angry Toddler Conference

I met with his teacher yesterday. We agreed that his asthma medicines are making him, well let's just say it, an Angry Toddler. She said that his behavior has been different for the past two weeks.

I told her that we would work on it at home. We read the "Teeth Are Not For Biting" book about 5x last night.

We also discussed what things that they are working on in the classroom. She told me that she is making them slow down, and not running. She also said to emphasize putting away toys to Angry Toddler.

AT put all his toys away last night. He was great!

My first parent/teacher conference

Well, Angry Husband and I went to pick up Angry Toddler from preschool today. There was a note in his folder. AT had bit a kid 3x. The teacher wanted a meeting with us.

Also, AT had been bitten by a kid on his back this morning.

Angry Toddler was trying to take a toy away from the other kid, that's why he bit the kid 3X, in 3 separate instances.

Ugh... I know it's the meds for his bronchitis. His behavior has been awful since he started on the breathing treatments almost 2 weeks ago.

We are not giving him a treatment tomorrow morning.

My mom was like, "I hope he doesn't get kicked out of this school. What are you going to do, Julie." Thanks Mom for the encouragement.

I'm meeting with the teacher on Thursday morning. Happy fricken Valentine's Day to me.

Good/Bad Weekend

Well my weekend started off on Friday, when Angry Toddler's school called me at noon. He had a febrile seizure at school. Ugh, we thought the sickness was over for a few weeks. I guess not. I took him to the doctor later that day and he was diagnosed with bronchitis.

Angry Toddler DOES NOT want to cooperate with his breathing treatments. I don't blame him, it tastes nasty. Angry Husband had to hold him down while I gave him the treatment. Angry Toddler was biting and kicking AH.

On Saturday, we went to a local zoo. AH calls this more "a park with some animals". I thought it was cute. It was really close to our house, and cheap. AT got to see some monkeys, an elephant, and even a cow.

On Saturday night, I went and got a pedicure with my friend, Stacie. I got this mermaid blue color. It's totally funky. She thinks I'm a weirdo, ya soo what! We went to Target and Old Navy too while we were there. Old Navy is having a Baby Sale, so I got some summer clothes for Angry Toddler.

On Sunday, we went to 2 fish stores, so Angry Toddler could see some fishies. We also went to a place called Prehistoric Pets so AT could see some snakes and lizards.

Sunday night, I went to the gym to get away for a little bit. I'm trying to condition my ankle. It's healing better and I have to go back to work on Saturday. I need to make sure I can walk on it for 11 hours a day.

Angry Toddler was feeling alot better this morning. We gave him a breathing treatment and sent him to preschool. He was soo happy to be with his friends. He loves preschool.

Mommy got to watch all her stuff on Tivo too!!! Yippeee.

I am not a cold weather person

I know, I know...I live in California. But seriously folks, it's been fricken cold here lately. I'm not used to wearing long sleeves and a jacket all the time.

About a week ago, Angry Husband wanted me to call the Heater People. He (AH) was complaining of his eyes burning, and his sinuses bugging him.

So I called them out. The guy checked my heater, air conditioner, and thermostat. He told me that it was WAY too HOT in the house. It was like at 72 degrees. I was freezing. So he re-programmed the entire thermostat and told me not to touch it.

He then suggested that we get new filters for our heater. He said that we could use a duct cleaning too, and maybe one of those Living Air thingys. I was concerned that since we have a 125 gallon fish tank, maybe we have too much salinity in the air.

Anyway, one week later, we wake up every morning freezing. Cause the heater has not kicked on yet. This was the first morning that I wasn't cold. WHY? Cause Angry Toddler came into our room at 1am, and was snoring in my ear. So I moved to AT's bed, which had a brand new down comforter (Thanks Nana!). I was soo snug and warm.

Angry Husband mentioned tonight about how cold it was this morning in the house. I responded by saying that I wasn't cold. Ha Ha Ha!

I suggested that maybe we get a down comforter for our bed. Our only problem? We don't share very well. We would have to get two comforters for our bedroom. Which would be totally expensive.

So I'm sitting here right now in flannel pj pants and a long sleeve shirt. I am still cold. This cannot continue.

I need a vacation right now to someplace warm. I can't deal with this cold weather much longer.

Some little spam..Boy's Buy/Sell/Trade

My friends on one of my message forums started this Boy's Only Buy/Sale/Trade forum last year. It has been quite a success. I know that I've sold hundreds of dollars of things on there.

With e-bay and their fee increases, and new policies; I know people are looking for an alternative.

Well here ya go!

Well Dressed Boy

My Mother and Technology

So I give my mom her daily phone call this morning.

First thing she says, "This damn computer, I can't get on it."

I say, "What are you trying to do?"

She replies, "I'm trying to get onto a website, but this fucking piece of shit won't let me. I'm soo sick of this computer."

Ahh sigh, my mom has no patience......

She finally got on the website she wanted.

And people wonder where I got my colorful vocabulary.

Update on my leg

Well I went to the doctor last Friday. He told me that it's only a small fracture and put me in one of those inflatable boot thingys. I kinda walk like Frankenstein in it.

I'm really bummed, because I was going to start a new workout regime, along with Sasha's Couch 2 5K Program Hopefully, I will be able to start walking soon without the boot.

Even though, I have ye ole' boot on, Angry Husband gave a me a huge list of things to do yesterday. I had to go to Costco, the Post Office, and the Bank. Luckily, my friend, Stacie, saved me from going to the Post Office. I was lucky enough to catch her on her lunch break and handed off my packages to her. I think she goes to the Post Office as much as a I do. She happily accepted my packages along with some other goodies I had for her in my car.

Stacie also saw what a mess my car is. With Angry Toddler being sick and this broken ankle, I haven't had much time/energy to clean up my car and the garage. Plus, it's been raining and I need a good carwash. The back cargo area is full of stuff from Target, Costco, and even a Gap bag.

So today, I'm going to concentrate on some more Spring cleaning.

Oh, and I also want to Thank the Writer's Strike for one thing lately, Good Sleep. Since none of my shows have been on, I have been going to bed at like 9:30pm and not midnight. No wonder I was wide awake at 5am this morning.

Need to Update my Blogroll

I'm tweaking my blog this weekend.

I haven't had a chance to update it recently. I'm on vacation from hell, I mean work. I usually do my blogging at work.

So if you would like to be added to my blogroll.

Let me know!!!

I know there are a ton of bloggers out there that I would like to read, but haven't seen yet.

Ugh, I swear my husband is deaf!!

I'm sitting here minding my own business on my computer.

Angry Toddler is napping. The husband is watching tv in our front room. If anyone knows me and my husband, you know we have a "Super" surround system.

So AH puts on a DVD. And OMG it's soo fucking loud, I can't hear myself think!

I yelled from the office, "Are you fucking deaf, dude?" "Seriously, the next door neighbors can't hear our tv."

He turned it down, but not quiet enough....

I finally asked what he was watching, but didn't really care...."300".

Ugh, I hate that movie, too much blood.

Yep It's Broken

So after some x-rays at the Urgent Care. It was determined that I broke a small bone in my right ankle.

The doctor put a temporary splint on my leg until the swelling goes down. She then gave me an orthopedic's number to call about casting.

Seriously, this totally sucks. I can't do anything. I can't drive. I can barely hobble around in these crutches...
