Weekly reflections 11/17/13

11/17/13 

1. If you ever see my kids at school with no shoes on, you'll know I followed through on my threats. 
2. Don't ever judge my fashion sense by what I wear to bus stop or in car to drop kids off at school. 
3. Holidays are coming up. I'm going to need more Xanax. 
4. If I'm running errands my dog is in the car with me. I also talk to her more daily than Rich. 
5. If I am overly tired I get extremely itching and can't fall asleep. 
6. My name is Carla and I'm addicted to "looming". Please just send cool yarn to me. 


7. I loved seeing everyone's random info this week on FB. 
8. I completely missed my weekly update last week because I had a girls weekend in deep creek and drank too much all weekend and couldn't think of anything I learned. 
9. Every time (which is daily) I crack my neck I think of Jim Gish from high school. In fact it's crazy the things I associate daily with people from my past. 
10. It's ridiculous the amount of people who already have their Christmas  lights on outside already. (However I'm not going to lie, I've started to decorate the inside of my house, but if you know the amount of stuff I have you will know it will take me until the week before to finish). 
 11. I have 13 chickens and no eggs. If this continues I will have chicken in my freezer however. 

That's all for this week. What can you reflect on? Share!

What I learned? 11/3/13

11/3/13 

1. Robin Thicke ruined black and white strips forever. 


2. Halloween creates a weird day when I can't figure out if someone is dressed up or not. 
3. The Scottdale Halloween parade is too dark to watch 11 kids. 
4. When you try to smuggle three cocaine filled pumpkins through the airport, trick or treating just got real! 

5. 'The Goldberg's'....hilarious throw back to my life! 
6. Lady GaGa just one up'ed Miley! 





7. So stupid, but I was having a crappy morning and this made it better!! 

8. I love the one nail different look but I'm too OCD to do it! 
9. Apparently many don't know about molting chickens! I feel like I taught people all about quill feathers. 



That's all for this week...tune in next week. Learn something new? Share!

What I learned 10/27/13

10/27/13 

1. These 'bitstrips' cartoons on FB make me crazy. Not only are they stupid, I just don't understand 99% of them. 
2. My children way overuse the word "literally", literally. 
3. The boy child sucks at spelling....literally. 
4. I have lazy, non-laying chickens. 
5. Rich has the bladder of a pregnant  woman. 
6. Touching pregnant women bellies is illegal in PA...I'm going to jail and I don't even care. 
7. I love the concept of play it forward and try to do it at least once a week. 
8. People who take advantage of good hearted people suck.  They are not put on earth to support you. Get a job. You are breaking their hearts. If you are thinking this is about you, it probably is. Take note, the next step is to confront you in person and I'm trying not to embarrass you and put you on blast, but trust me I will. 
9. Rich has to take a day off work to have a "date" with me. Our date consisted of a trip to Walmart. It was fun. 
10. Oh Kim Kardashian.  We really don't want to see your ass. 
11. This pathetic guy wasted his money: 

12. Chicken coffins..who knew! 



That's it for this week. What can you reflect about?

What I learned. 10/20/13

10/20/13

1. TLC really needs to contact me for a new show concept. "Facebook Wars". I'm copyrighting that! 
2. I love Morty from the 'Swiffer' commercials. I've adopted them as my pretend grandparents. Pap-pap Morty's sure to hook me up with a cool  Swiffer package at Christmas. 

3. Sometimes not getting what you want is exactly what you need. 
4. There's an unspoken competition at my house between the girl child and boy child. Which can set mom over the edge faster? The boy that misses the toilet peeing or the girl that never flushes. Stay tuned to see if the mom starts to make them build an outhouse. 

5. I'd like to reclaim my bed on the weekend. Or at least get my side back. Two kids, two animals and me don't fit well enough for me. 
6. The boy child is at the age where he doesn't want to dress up for Halloween but still wants the loot....11yr old issues, yo. 
7. There are more dead deer along Rt 119 then in fields this week. 

8. Life's a constant struggle for me: MILF vs shaving legs. Decisions, decisions. 
9. If my hubby doesn't stop playing GTA, there's going to be a 187 in 'da house. (Explaination: GTA-- video game, 187--murder code)

10. Someone needs to come up with dessert delivery. Cake and pies please. 
  

That's all for this week! What reflections can you make? Share!! Enjoy your week...remember to learn new things.

Weekly reflections 10/13/13

10/13/13

1. I. Need. A. Baby. Someone needs to make this happen because Rich won't participate to make it happen. I need not birth a child. A porch baby would be fine. (A girl baby would be nice because I could dress her in Vera Bradley's baby line. A boy baby is ok too.) 

2. I think all the morning shows like "Good Morning America" "Today" show, etc are boring and annoying on purpose to make you get up and do something rather than lounge on the couch. 
3. I have a two-time-dog-roll-in-shit limit before I totally get pissed at the dog. 
4. I was too lazy to drag out my fall/Halloween decorations from the attic, so I just bought new. 
5. Apparently the grass is greener (or tastes better) on the other side of the fence to my chickens...this answers the age ol' question of why the chicken crossed the road. 
6. Few want to step up to be the leader, but most are quick to criticize the leader. 
7. There is lice (and that's bad enough) and now "super lice"? Good grief. Below is a pic of kids bookbags and jackets thrown on the floor at library at school. All I could think was "super lice, super lice, super lice!" 
That's all for this week! What can you reflect on?
