Tacky Tuesday

My friend at work just showed me this clip and I thought it was hysterical!!!  Obviously I am a huge fan of silly stupid funny. I think this was cemented more than ever after my Mom died. My Dad and I watched the first Hangover movie and we almost peed our pants laughing so friggin hard!!  It was the first time we were actually able to forget that she was gone and enjoy ourselves for more than 5 minutes. We just kept rewinding the funny parts and howling!!  To this day, those movies can always cheer me up.  Especially since we taught my nephew (he was 3 1/2 at the time) to say, “THEY SHOT EDDIE!!!”  He used to yell it out to us from my brother’s deck as we were leaving.  Needless to say, my sister-in-law did NOT find this as comical as we did.  But hey it sure used to help on those days where I couldn’t even believe the sun still came up sometimes.  I say whatever works right?

On a side note, it feels like I have been working through things and feelings for so very long now.  So much hurt, sadness, pain and anger.  Obviously it was one of the reasons this blog has helped me so very much. Since I have been able to forgive all that happened, I just really want to stay happy and grateful.  It’s not always easy but it’s working so far.  My life is actually pretty tame now and drama free.  That’s just the way I like it.

I hope that’s okay 🙂







T Req making bed

It’s Monday?






This one totally cracked me up!!! Hope everyone made it through their Monday. I was feeling a little blah this morning, but went to lunch with a friend from work and laughed a lot! Much better now 🙂

Thanksgiving Fun

Oops forgot to post this earlier 🙂




Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I am so thankful for all my blessings and loved ones. Having said that, as well as being a happy positive person, I’m also a realist so…..

I just read about a great new drinking game. Today every time someone:
1. Rants about Donald Trump
2. Asks u a dumb question like why you’re single or when you’re having kids
3. Talks about another family member
4. Says the word tryptophan
5. Argues white meat vs dark meat
6. Mentions parade floats
7. Or just annoys you at all


I Love Friday!

Hands up if you love friday


Thank God It’s Friday! This week seemed to really drag for me.  I’ve just been really tired and run down.  It happens from time to time with depression.  So I took the day off yesterday and slept a lot.  Sometimes my body and mind just need a rest. Thankfully today I feel so much better.  Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend 🙂

This Made Me Laugh!

This joke is worth the read!  Hubby told it to me and I cracked up! Love a guy that makes me laugh 😉

A first-grade teacher, Ms. Brooks, was having trouble with one of her more precocious students. The teacher asked, ‘Harry, what exactly is your problem?’

Harry answered, ‘I’m too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd grade and I’m smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!’
Ms. Brooks finally had enough. She took Harry to the principal’s office.
While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained the situation to the principal. The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the boy a test. If he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed.
Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he happily agreed to take the test.
Principal: ‘What is 3 x 3?’
Harry: ‘9.’
Principal: ‘What is 6 x 6?’
Harry: ’36.’
And so it went with every question the principal thought a bright 3rd grader should know.
The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her,
‘Y’ know, I reckon Harry can go to the 3rd grade’
But Ms. Brooks is still skeptical of the little bugger and says to the principal, ‘not so fast, let me ask him a few questions..’
The principal and Harry both agreed.
Ms. Brooks asks, What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?’
Harry, after a moment: ‘Legs..’
Ms Brooks: ‘What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?’
The principal wondered why would she ask such a question!
Harry replied: ‘Pockets.’ to the Principal’s great relief…..
Ms. Brooks: ‘What does a dog do that a man steps into?’
Harry: ‘Pants.’
By now, the principal is sitting forward with his mouth hanging open..
Ms. Brooks: ‘What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?’
Now the principal’s eyes open really wide and before he could intervene, Harry replied, ‘Bubble gum.’
Ms. Brooks: ‘What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs?’
Harry: ‘Shake hands.’
The principal is now trembling with apprehension as Ms. Brooks asks the last question……
Ms. Brooks: ‘What word starts with an ‘F’ and ends in ‘K’ and indicates a great deal of heat and excitement?’
Harry: ‘Firetruck.’
The principal breaths a huge sigh of relief and tells the teacher, ‘Put the little bastard in 5th-Grade, I got the last seven questions wrong myself…’

Have a great day all and go where the love is!

It’s Official!


I’m old lol. I don’t know when the hell it happened but I never saw it coming. Most of the time I feel like a kid. Heck I even get caught sometimes by my hubby watching cartoons (I am aware a 40 year-old should not watch cartoons but it’s only once in a while and they make me laugh.)

There was about 12 teenagers in front of our house before. We are on a corner so it happens every so often. No big deal. I remember being a kid with no car and no place to hang out.

But then they started setting off fireworks.  Hey it’s close to the 4th of July and not a problem because they were smart enough to set them off across the street in the baseball field. So all was well.

Then I hear one go wizzing by my car parked out front lol. Oh hell no! So I walk downstairs,  go out front and say “Hey guys, great if u want to set them off in the field. Just if you do it by my car again, I will kick each and every one of your asses. Thanks but have fun!”

They were very sweet n cool n took it back to the field, smiling all the way. Then it hit me. I’M OFFICIALLY OLD!

Into The Fire

walking into fire


Today is P’s birthday.  The addict in me wants to unblock him and make contact.  My brain actually tries to come up with valid reasons and excuses! Thankfully, I know it is full of crap lol.  And really, to what end?  It would just do more harm to both of us, especially me.  So instead of doing something I would absolutely regret, I am blogging about it.

I almost cannot believe it has been 6 months since we have seen one another.  I saw him almost every single week, sometimes twice.  He took me to Radio City Music Hall for a concert for my birthday last year and we went away for 3 days together for his last spring.   We met 2 years ago this week. And while I still miss him so much it hurts sometimes, I do not miss the chaos and dysfunction that permeates his life. I do not miss the addictive way I craved his love.

I really thought he was someone who treasured my heart. Someone who would never abuse my trust and who cherished me. Ultimately, he couldn’t overcome all his fears and anxiety.   The simple fact is that he could and did hurt me and himself.  Nothing can change that and while I have forgiven him, I cannot forget the broken promises and how easily he was controlled and bullied into submission.  Definitely not attractive in a person.

Now I don’t know what would’ve happened.  Maybe I would’ve been miserable dealing with all his problems and issues.  I guess we will never know.  It wasn’t my choice but I have had to come to terms and accept it.  We were always able to tackle any problem together, so I had faith.  He taught me how much joy and fun life has to offer and he says I taught him how to love.  That he never knew how much peace and happiness you could feel just sitting on a bench holding hands and watching the planes fly by.  My heart is almost healed and I am taking it day by day.

I think the one element that has been bothering me is this.  If he had any kind of loving, caring wife who genuinely cared about him and wanted to fix their marriage, I would be hurt but I would understand that decision.  But that is NOT what he has nor what he will ever have.  So so is not a very good person but she is a master at faking it as she has been doing it all her life.  She is a frigid, fake narcissist who uses fear, threats, lies and intimidation to manipulate, bully and control.  She lacks any real empathy and this will not change.  This codependent, dysfunctional relationship obviously works for them and they are welcome to it.  Not good enough to be happy but not terrible enough to leave.  A kind of permanent purgatory.

For me, life is too short not to be happy.

I know now he is back to a sex life consisting solely of porn on his Kindle and his hand.  I saw this cartoon and I could not help but think of him 😉
