Do You Hear What I Hear? (random winter thoughts from my head)

yes it screams in NEON, I’m a mom and a MK lady…so shoot me 🙂

DEAR WORDpress Friends:  First of all: it’s still the 10th in TEXAS and NOT midnight (yet)

It sounds like a dripping, leaky faucet.  You know that drip drip drip when you are trying to sleep?  I’m going to rant again 🙂 Just a little.  Just  for fun.  I didn’t mean to do this, it’s just funny how natural it comes.  Ok, it’s not funny at all …heheee. So to help with the ranting, I’m adding a scripture.  Ladies, don’t be a leaky faucet.  Plus, I seem to be not writing anything about Christmas in this blog challenge …who knew?

Proverbs 19:13

13 A foolish child[a] is a calamity to a father;
a quarrelsome wife is as annoying as constant dripping. (NIV)

13- A parent is worn to a frazzle by a stupid child;
a nagging spouse is a leaky faucet.   That is the Message. It says stupid…teehee.

A nagging wife is like water going drip-drip-drip on a rainy day. How can you keep her quiet? Have you ever tried to stop the wind or ever tried to hold a handful of oil? (GNB: Prov 27.15)

ok…So I’ll start by saying OUCH.  But note, it says nagging wife, not nagging friends, so read on my friends!

Then, continuing…but at least in a blog, YOU only listen if you chose to READ 🙂 heehee

OK…I get like ALOT of emails everyday and only a few that mean anything .  I am an over eater as most know.  If you aren’t sure, go back and look at pictures and watch me continue to GROW at the age of 35.  All that to say, I got an email from Chili’s and promptly opened it thinking I could print it out and have another super coupon to tell my bestie about and save some cash while having some Mommy time out with good food and such.  So I plug the printer in, open the email and they have asked me to FILL out a survey.  OK, I might, so I can get that coupon. NOPE, I read further and all I get is a CHANCE to win a dinner.  Ummmm…REALLY???

So, unlike me, and just like I have time, I’m going to fill out that survey.  Wanna know what GOT me? All in that email (and maybe you got one too) they kept saying, “TELL us what you think…”  WELL…that’s always dangerous with me…It said it like three times.

So I’m going to fill it out and copy and paste the following in the comment section.  I promise I will get right back to you and let you know if I win the free dinner!


I think that Christmas comes way too fast every year since I had my own kids and never seemed to come when I was a kid! whats up with that?

I think that public school is…ok, I’ll blog about that in January.

I think that Facebook is fun, but I can’t believe I have a kid old enough (almost) to have an account and have to worry about who he is talking to and keeping up with everyday.

I think that nativity scenes are the best Christmas decoration.

I think that Diet Coke is laced with CRACK/Cocaine. (as well as Goldfish, McNuggets, and Hershey kisses)

I think that someone should require cheerleaders to put a few more pieces of cotton on so men can watch the game and mommas can still be proud that their daughter is in a “sport”

I think that school teachers get frustrated with kids and forget that they are kids.

I think that my dad’s coffee maker is the best coffee ever, 2nd is my bestie’s coffee that she buys me at Central Market.

I think that if I keep  writing you won’t keep reading, but I don’t care.

I think that Mary Kay is the best career move I ever made and never meant to.

I think that Casa Ole has the best Queso, but I guess Chili’s is good too.

I think that pedestrians are a little too brave at the mall.

I think that getting old has great advantages.

I think that people who talk thru band concerts just to get to have a snack at the end and say they were there are disrespectful and I would have paid them to go to the store and get their own cookies last night.

I think that school lunches aren’t as bad as people make them sound for the amount of kids those women have to feed.  I would never want to try to do better.

I think TV is a family/life/ and personality brain sucker.

I think I like my new hair cut.

I think I’m not (wasn’t) a leaky faucet.

I think I’m going to write about CHristmas tomorrow (maybe)

I think I hear my bed calling 🙂

PS…Chili’s has good food, great service, and I like the big glasses and tile tables.  The chips, queso, and salsa are fab! Keep up the good work!

Merry Christmas…Hope I win!

  3. I love ranting posts. I have a few of them on my blog too. Great stuff. Oh and I have been trying for a long time to convince you dear sister of the magical powers contained in McNuggets. They are simply delicious and I swear to you honest as the day is long I just finished eating some for lunch less than five minutes ago. Casa Ole’ doesn’t have the best anything. Great post and I really am glad to see you are back in the blogging business!

  4. p.s…the sauces for dipping the stupid nuggets in are laced also, so BEWARE…
