Friend's Friday! Yes, It's Wednesday!



Just to screw with you, I'm moving Wednesday and Friday around. Toby was to be my friend on Friday but then no one could vote for the little brat.
And my booger is.......Toby! He is my sister's dog and he is in a commercial on WCIU. The only famous person in my family is a dog. So head over here and vote for little Toby Nero. Yes, my dog-nephew's name is Toby Nero. And you get to see my BIL.
Have a great Wednesday,

So Bored

Since I'm just laying in bed and bossing people around, I've realized a few things. This life isn't for me. I'm bored and now I'm grouchy. I also, have an odd imagination. A few houses down they are adding a garage. I hear this guy screaming, and he was pretty pissed. Then I hear a loud whack. It sounded like wood smacking and then more very angry screaming. This went on for a while. Eventually the screaming stopped so I assumed that the guy with the 2x4 won. And they could bury the body under the cement floor. Like I said, I'm sooooo bored!
I got another $20 from Toluna. Yay, me! I'm also trying to get into Pinecone Research.  I'll let you know about that one if I qualify. Since I have all this new found free time, I will keep looking for more ways for us to make money.
Living the good life,
SonyaAnn

So Much Fun

So I am bedridden. I tore my calf muscle. Well, I think I tore my calf muscle. Actually, DJ thinks I tore my calf muscle. He was the one searching online. They described it exactly, it felt like a gunshot and then searing pain. Mind you, I have never been shot but I was screaming like I was. So my life sucks now and everyone around here is actually seeing how much I do. Poor DJ is getting the blunt of it because he is now the new Sonya. I asked him if he wanted a set of droopy tits to go with it but he again acted as if he couldn't hear me.
And I bet you would like to know why I didn't go to the doctor. Well, some of you know why. I would go to the doctor and they would send me to the ER. So I would pay $50 to see the doctor and the $300 to go to the hospital. They would do an MRI and then tell me to stay off of it. I would then have to fight to see a specialist and that would cost another $80. And I wouldn't actually get in until I was healed in about 2 weeks. So I decided to stick it out. I will probably never be able to use my foot again but I saved $420!
Thanks for sharing in the misery,

Friend's Friday!


Since Frances is not as active as she used to be because of work, let's all go bug her. I told her to quit her job but she had been slow to respond.

College Crap!

If you have a kid headed off to college, this is for you! The list that everyone helped come up with has worked well. It is very complete and Anna tested it. She said that there wasn't one thing that she needed. Most parents had to run out a few times to get something on move in day. The only thing we went out for was food. So if you have a child or know a child that is headed off to school, go here for the list. I would suggest printing it off now and spending the summer collecting.
And for everyone that doesn't have a kid in school or put a kid through school, sorry this post probably won't help you.
Smile,
SonyaAnn

Too Cute



This is my adorable nephew, Justin. I got to see him last week and it was Heaven. And I do think that he is going to be hilarious when he gets older.
We all went out to dinner at Red Lobster-gotta love the cheddar biscuits. Justin had a messy diaper. He pinched his nose closed while he twisted to look at his bum and then turned and announced completely serious, "It's bad, so bad!" I've never seen a two year old that upset over their own diaper. I also think that it's time he learns to change himself.
Just a quick happy post,
SonyaAnn
PS-Now go back to eating your breakfast. And so sorry!

When Karma Catches Your Ass


I am not a zen master but on occasion the universe will give the average person clues, when that happens you should listen. Me, on the other hand, not so much. If you have been warned and don't listen-suffer stupid ass. I am stupid ass.
 DJ is going to England in a few short weeks. I am very glad for him but also very worried. It's my job as mom. So here was my train of thought-I will miss him but it will be a nice break-I hope that he bathes and brushes his teeth-I hope that he uses his best manners-I hope that he doesn't get sick-I hope that he doesn't have an allergic reaction(because I'm sure no one in England has ever had to treat this before)-OH GOD and now I have to worry even more.
And, as you all know, I fancy myself a witch doctor of sorts and decided to experiment on him before he left.  Our PCP said that Claritin should prevent all reactions. SHOULD. I kept that little bit of information in the back of my head for some time now. I know what you are thinking, I should have been giving him these pills for years. Getting him to bathe is a horrendous fight, taking pills every day would be impossible. I did try for a while but then he worried about the side effects. Yes, his self preservation reflex is in tact. He is basically an 80 year old man and has been like this since he was 3. He also, only has a reaction every few years and I have been able to get all but 2 under control, which is amazing. Refer back to the witch doctor.
So to be fair to the English folk, I loaded the boy up on Claritin and handed him a red Popsicle. He fought me at first but then gave in because I wouldn't leave him alone. After he ate most of it, it sunk in about what I had just done. He had eaten enough to about kill him and then I started to have second thoughts. I then decided that it would be a good idea to give him Benadryl. I lost my nerve. He on the other hand, was so pissed at me that he actually said to his loving mother, "Hell no! We are in this now!" The nerve!
It was an awful few hours but nothing happened. I was so relieved. Not only because I didn't force feed him death but because he would be safe in England. He even seemed happy. I'm not sure if it was because he lived or because we finally had something to prevent it.
Right about now you are thinking what does this have to do with Karma. Exactly! Fast forward a few days, he had a terrible reaction for no apparent reason. It was a really bad one. We were lucky that I got it under control as fast as I did and he didn't puke out his nose. Karma just isn't going to let me get away with poisoning him without a reaction even if it is very delayed. So now he is taking Claritin everyday, he even decided that it was a good idea.
Smile that this isn't your life,
SonyaAnn

My Worst Post Ever-Slut Style


Ok well if you haven't noticed it-I've been in and out lately. And I started another post that sounds like porn. I really can't help myself. I'm drawn that way. Jessica is hot for a cartoon. Yes, I notice cartoon tits and if I were to do a cartoon chick, she is first and then maybe Jenna Jameson(not a cartoon but go with it). Just saying. Mark keeps telling me to explore so here we are.
Now that I'm all worked up, I can't think straight.Haha-I'm full of them today. Anywho, I'm out of touch because I'm trying to find work babysitting and cleaning houses. I've got a bit of work but it is all piecemeal at this point. But I'm pretty happy with what I have been able to scrounge up in a matter of days.
And now the big question, why am I trying to come up with money? Ahhh well that would be because of my brother. I really love him but he is on my dipshit list right now. He is now in good company with Anna, DJ, and Den. I'm sure that if I try hard enough I can come up with a few more.
He was planning his wedding and then wasn't and then was. Well, you can see where this is going. Now it is on for October and it is in Vegas. Great and not great. Whatever, I'm too tired at this point to fight. After a day or two of chasing an adorable two year old, I just don't care.
Anna wanted to bring her boyfriend(I hear the sarcasm screaming from you as I type this-hold it). His family is bring her to a wedding in SC. They have more money and are nicer than us. After some screaming, I decided that the only way to be fair to her and her boyfriend was not to bring either one. Her look was priceless. I'm usually not this mean but fuck it, here we are. Calm down sluggy, I handled this one all on my own. And since I was on a roll, I made DJ make dinner for all of us and I told Den to cram the garage door up his ass. YAY team Sonya!
Back away slowly,

BORING!

Because I'm awesome like Annie, I now have chive vinegar. I used it on top of some peppered tomatoes and dill. It was a lunch hit. See told ya nothing much has been going on here! If you have any lunch ideas, I would be ever so grateful.
Lots of love to ya,

What to Talk About


This is my little garden(don't look at the crumbling bricks) It is great because it just keeps reseeding itself, if only our money did that. The only thing that I planted this year was some basil. The baskets have lettuce growing in them-mostly. We got a huge amount of rain and most of the seeds that I lovingly planted were washed out into the actual garden. So I replanted the lettuce seeds in the baskets and now I have lettuce everywhere. I don't know why it didn't dawn on me that they would grow in the ground and the baskets. We like salads so all is good.
And toluna paid me again so I'm at $140. I'm really hoping that Christmas will only cost us a few hundred. I also have almost enough for three gift cards from My Points.
My cheap world,
SonyaAnn

Friend's Friday!

In keeping with the English theme(since DJ is going) I dub my booger for the week, Clair from Mummy Deals. It also doesn't suck that she can help you save a pound or two. Haha, I'm so funny.
Have a great weekend,

When I Grow Up

I made Chive Blossom Vinegar the other day. I think that I want to be Annie when I grow up. She is witty and she can cook. Here is the "process" on how to make this.
Everyone that visits my blog has such a wonderful personality and wit that I wanted to be a little bit like everyone when I grow up. Then I decided that if you mixed all of us together, I would end up to be a fat Charles Manson.
On a completely different and not so scary subject, I got another $20 from toluna. So I'm at $120, I think. And since we charged DJ's ticket to England, I should hit $500 from the credit card without a problem. Christmas here we come!
Have a great day,
Charles

This and That

The peace treaty between Anna and I is still holding. In fact, she ran up and threw her arms around me for making her lunch every morning. Maybe it has something to do with the dill and chives but I should have done this years ago! She is still working in the factory too.
My van no longer looks like this, the bumper is now attached for the mere pittance of $500. The man at the body shop said he replaced the rusty clips under the bumper. So I guess that it won't fall off again.
I need to be more like Mark and walk around with a camera. I never have beautiful pictures of my kids or my cute van.
Thanks for stopping by,
SonyaAnn

The Queen and My Box

I like my life, mind, and closets all the same way-very organized and in neat, cute and easily stack-able boxes. Yes, I organize my mind in boxes. There are some dusty ones in back but it works for me. I also have a chalkboard in there that I use because I can't spell. I know, I need medication but that is how I think.
Nothing in my life is fitting in the boxes at this moment. I try never to start a project and walk away. This is happening at the moment. I'm an unorganized mess. I'm trying to be like Den and just let it go.(His letting it go means, I do it)((He isn't doing my work tho.))
This is our pool or as I like to refer to it-swamp muck. This was right after we pulled the tarp off that had failed us. The failing tarp is still in the yard. I never let this happen. Hopefully, it will blow into the neighbor's yard and I won't have to deal with it. I have also gone through all of the money that I set aside for the pool. Yes, an entire season's money gone in about a week. Grrrrr. But the good news is the water is now white not green. I'm fine with white water.

This is DJ and his BFF from a few years ago Halloween. They don't do Halloween anymore because they are too old. Breaks my little heart. Anyways, DJ is going to England this summer with Jordan. God save the Queen. How cool is it that I worked that in, I don't think that I have ever said that before! Anyways, he will be gone for three weeks. It should take me that long to scrub down his room and remove the boy funk smell. Back to the point of this, I have never booked an international flight so Jordan's dad Steve booked it. But nothing here is easy. He tried to book online and it didn't work and then had to book over the phone. DJ joked that by the time Steve was done he would have three seats. Haha, he has two now. Since money is no object it is just a funny joke. Steve fixed it and I didn't stress about that one.
So this is the disorganized life that I am now living.
Hoping your week is more organized,
SonyaAnn

Odds and Ends

I'm having a hard time getting into the swing of summer and it seems that I'm running out of time to get things done.
I got another $20 from Toluna. I'm up to $100 for Christmas.That is good news.
I took all the money that we had saved in our funds so that we could pay cash for the van. I managed to save $600 in the car fund to replace what we spent on the van in a few months. The bad news is the deductible and the tow ate it all up. But I'm super thankful that we had it.
 I took two pieces of lunch meat added tomato, dill, ranch dressing and then peppered it.

I tied it off with some chives and made another lunch sensation for Anna and Den. I know super exciting.
Have a great day,
SonyaAnn
