I Hate Titles

I think I've become accustomed to blogging in the heat while waiting outside of LittleBrother(11)'s school until he gets out. I tried to type something at home on the couch and my fingers became frozen. I also decided to get here an hour in advance and get LB through the pick-up line so I wouldn't have to look at the COAEW. She asked Sweety if she could have them Monday (which should be his day) so she could spend time with them. Her words were, "With all of the little kids around, I can't spend much time with them." Gee, you lazy bitch. Where the fuck were you for LB's last two baseball games? Bah. I find it interesting that last baseball season (right after she got married) that she and her new husband were at every single ballgame. She has missed several this season and he hasn't shown up at any.

BigBrother(13) has an FFA banquet tomorrow night and it's the last baseball game for LB. I get to take BB to the banquet and Sweety is doing the ballgame. After the game, Sweety is treating the team and their families to pizza at Cici's. If BB and I get done early enough, we will meet them there. The boys are supposed to be at the COAEW's house on Thursday nights but since so much is going on, she said they can come home with us and she will pick them up Friday morning. Sweety told her that she was welcome to come to the pizza party (and take the kids home with her afterwards) but she said she would feel odd there. What the fuck ever.

Basically, she doesn't want to be out that late, waiting for LB's pizza party to be over. Goody, goody gumdrops. Do you know what this means? That instead of going and hanging out with friends and getting my drink on after being Happy Smiling Soccer Mom all day - I will get to go home with the boys. I will tuck them into bed and have a couple of glasses of box wine. That should help wash off the Happy Smiling Soccer Mom residue. You really don't know how hard it is for me to do that shit. I'm socially retarded.

In 57 days, we go on vacation! Yaaay! I will be off of work for 18 days! Woot! I will get to see my sweet Mama, my friends back in Texas, my niece and nephew in Texas and will spend a couple of day with the fantabulous Bekah. I. Can. Not. Wait. One thing that I really like about being in Oklahoma is that we don't get any cell phone service there so Sweety isn't as accessible to his office as he normally is. If he flat can't reach them then he worries less about what is going on at work.

I finally arranged the bath bomb army. I gave a bunch of them away to a couple of people but it didn't seem to make a dent in them. I decided to stick them in a glass bowl so that I can admire all of them. (yes, that is the same kind of bowl that PeteTheFish lives in) You seriously can't open a drawer in my house without being assaulted by some sort or candle or bath item.
I like looking at them.

They're everywhere! Poor, overloaded cabinet.

You can click them to biggum & view all of their glory. You know you want to.

1. Are bath bombs interfering with the way you want to live your life?

2. Do you indulge in bath bombs when you really don't want to?

3. Do you buy bath bombs in the morning or before 5PM?

4. Do you think about bath bombs at inappropriate times?

5. Have you lost control of your life because of bath bombs?

6. Do you hide bath bombs?

7. Do you buy or use bath bombs while you're alone?

Perhpa you need an interventionist.

I love your fish bowl display so much I may steal it. If I do, I'll sent you a picture

Still having trouble reconciling the words Texas and Vacation in the same sentence.

I couldn't get divorced - I have enough trouble keeping my own family straight much less figuring out someone else's.

Amy said...

I really can't stand doing the soccer mom thing either. I'm so glad my son is a runner. It's a far more laid back crowd.

Midwestern City Boy said...

Believe it or not; but one day in the not so distant future when the boys have grown up/moved away, you are going to look back on these days and realize that you were having the time of your life.

themom said...

One will never be dirty while at your houe...you have enough bath bombs to fit the whole 983rd!! I'll bet your house smells wonderful!! Love SagaciousHillbilly's meme.

bekah said...

I'm excited to see you again, too. Yay for vacations.

Chickie said...

Sagacious Hillbilly - Oh geez. I answered yes to all of these except for #5. But maybe I'm in denial with that one. This addiction must be better for me than smoking crack.

Ginamonster - You are more than welcome to use my idea! I've decided that once the bowl is empty, I'm going to make some sort of gigantic alchoholic drink and use that as my glass.

The Phosgene Kid - If you vacationed in Texas with me then you would understand!

I'm just so glad that I didn't bring any kids into this marriage from my first one. What a clusterfuck that would be.

Amy - I just have a habit of thinking really off the wall things. It's hard to keep them from spilling out of my mouth and alarming others.

Midwestern City Boy - I know, I know. I look back on the field trips and different things that have happened with the boys over the last 7 years and they make me smile.

themom - The great thing about the bath bombs is that they all live in the bathroom (aka Tiny and Stinky's den). The bath bomb smell overpowers the dog smell.

bekah - Yay for vacations! I'll also be sure to bring some of that bubble bath that make the water change colors!

The Phosgene Kid said...

Well you are from Oklahoma, so Texas is bound to be more fun than that...

Chickie said...

The Phosgene Kid - Yup. I go to OK first to chill out and then to TX to dance on tables.

Scott English said...

Talk about WMDs!

Dancing on tables in TX? Where exactly are you guys going to be vacation in my home state?

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

The Colors are so pretty, Chickie....I LOVE All those Pastels. And what a great idea to put them in that Glass Bowl--Large Brandy Sbifter....!

Sara Sue said...

They're beautiful! No wonder you're so taken with them ... I bet they smell wonderful too, huh?

Chickie said...

Scott English - Sweety calls them WMDs too. He says we can throw them in a time of crisis.

East Texas. Lovely East Texas. I think it's a couple of hours from you.

Lady of the Hills - I almost sacrificed the fish and took his bowl but decided to buy another one for this project!

Sara Sue - I can't walk by without sniffing them!

Monogram Queen said...

Yep, I know I want to! LOL


I am a Fake Soccer Mom - I know of which you speak!

Chickie said...

Monogram Queen - I always click people's pictures to make them bigger so I can look at all of the shit in the photo and background. I am nosy like that.

It's hard work being a Fake Soccer Mom.
