Roadkill and Ruined Rib Eye

So, when Mister Wonderful is home, he is involved in his favorite past time, online gaming.  He has a Playstation 3.  Last Wednesday, the Playstation Network was hacked into and has been down since then.  Let me tell you, boys and girls, this does not make for a happy MW.  There is nothing pointing to the network being repaired and back up any time soon, either.  I have never been a video gamer, even as a kid.  But I can tell you this, I am counting the days till they get that stupid network back up and running.  Get him back into his man cave and out of my hair.  If any of you are the one that hacked it, please fix it.  Have mercy on a poor Squaw, will ya???

So, I had yesterday off work.  I cleaned the house.  I completely cleaned out, disassembled and scrubbed down the freezer and the fridge.  I pulled all of the old meat etc out of the freezer from the great thaw when the electric company jacked my place up.  Yes, I JUST now did that.  Sorry, but what very few hours I have at home, I'm usually trying to cook, do laundry, take care of animals and sleep.  Did the fridge, left the bigger project, the freezer for when I had more time.  Anyhow, I was in A LOT of trouble for cleaning the fridge and freezer out, because since there is a burn ban on and MW blew up my explorer, he was at a loss as to what exactly to DO with all the crap I cleaned out of there.  Boy was I in trouble.  House looks great though  :-D

MW didn't want a ham for Easter.   He wanted steak.  It was on sale at Albertson's, boneless rib eyes for 4.77/pound.  When I got there yesterday morning, they had taken them off sale Saturday night.  I bought a package of chicken and some pork ribs for the week.  I had one steak left from Friday night at the house, figured I'd cook that for MW and the ribs for Papoose #2 and I.  I get home and MW has a fit when he sees the ribs before I can get out of my mouth that I have a steak left over for him in the fridge.  Proceeds to tell me he doesn't care for pork ribs much at all.  I was like, well that's interesting to find out, after I've been making them for the past 20 years!!  So, steak and ribs go on the grill, he's keeping an eye on them.  The storm rolls in and he pulls everything off.  Charred and raw spots on the ribs.  Yay.  I put them into the oven.  When we sit down to eat, he takes a bite of his steak and pushes it away, proclaiming that it's ruined and inedible because it tastes like pork from being cooked with the pork ribs.  Sheesh.

There is a dead armadillo near the house, off of 730.  It's reclining in typical dead armadillo pose.  This weekend someone stopped and put a beer bottle on top of it.  I wanted to stop and get a picture, but Papoose #2 and I were running way too late and didn't dare stop, for fear of being lit up by the principal again.  Made us both laugh our hineys off all the way to school though, that is for sure.

The storms were beautiful this weekend.  Sat out on the front porch with LabPup last night enjoying the show.  The big hail rolled over our house at 3:20am this morning.  Tore our shingles up pretty good.  Deciding if I should call the insurance agent on it or not.  Any input from you home owners out there, please??

The food delivery semi hit TRD's pickup this morning.  Have to find a body shop for an estimate now.

It's amazing how quick MW was to get his Cobra running again, after he drove my Explorer into the dirt and blew it up.  Any bets on my being told he can't afford his share of the upcoming mortgage for May?  *heavy sigh*

Daily wear contacts do not handle crying very well.  FYI.

I'm thinking about adding more hours at Job #2, now that the doc has me feeling a little bit better.  I'm feeling like a lazy ass for hesitating to do so.  Ugh.

I hate this part of being a mommy.  Thank you for the comments and support, friends.  They are greatly appreciated.

Somebody please fix the Playstation Network.  For the love of all that's holy......


  1. I have just finished reading your ENTIRE blog. Like a rewind. Very near the end I realized that maybe I should have started at the oldest post and not gone backwards. All I have to say is that you are so AMAZING. I love you as a women with all the sh*t we have to live with and endure and still get up the next morning. I love you as a mother since what you feel about your pooses and having to read their facebok page, and #1 writing how she's miserable and not telling you - it's all sitting crumbled up in the bottom of my heart too. I have two girls and a son. Kids - joys, hurts, pride, everything in one stew. I love your girls. You are a wonderful mother for them - but you know that - even though we all wonder why we have to be so f'd up and our daughters see that and it impacts on them. I am so blown away by your blog. I have no idea how long I have been reading through it. But since I read it backwards maybe it's earlier than when I started. :)

  2. Ms. Devi...I don't even know how to respond, thank you for your kind words. Salve to the soul. Good to have sisters in this life, isn't it? Helps to keep our perspective right. Thank you for reading, and for commenting. I am quite enjoying your blog as well, and learning so much from it!!! Always leave there with important thoughts to ponder, and a better attitude about life.

  3. Oh how happy I am!! I knew you two should connect... and that you would connect on some level!! I'm all warm & fuzzy now....
