Mashup Tuesday

I'm tired just thinking about what I did this weekend. I may have put McVal to shame. It was really that crazy and the kids didn't even cause it.
DJ's car is giving up the ghost or should I say rust. Hunks are now falling off at an alarming rate. Den thinks the floor board is rusting through. I think he should knock off all the rust with a hammer and see what exactly is falling off. I mean, I doubt they just put extra junks of metal under cars to rust off. It's probably something sort of important. I don't want the boy falling through the floorboard when he is driving or anything. Den said he will poke around under there when it gets warmer. I'm just wondering if he won't see into the car once he starts poking. Oh and while he is working on cars, both my van and his car needs brakes. That should make him happy, right?
 Back in January, when we had our new furniture delivered I said to donate all four of the couches. Well a neighbor wanted the upstairs couches so Den and DJ just had to carry them one door over. Then they donated the loveseat from downstairs to Goodwill. Den said the big couch was too large for the van. I said, throw it in there and tie the door closed, its only 15 minutes from here. But no, he broke it in four pieces and left it. Why make something harder than it needs to be? So we both ended up cutting it down this weekend. Fine, whatever. And then he saw me taking pictures and got all snarky. Yeah, he knew I was posting this one. I stared at him until he decided to go back to cutting it up with a saws-all. My job was to cut up the leather. I have to say I felt in touch with my American-Indian roots, it really felt like I was gutting a buffalo. I'm sorry, tatanka.
And this is what my buffalo looks like cut up. We also managed to get the Christmas lights down. Hey, its not April so its all good.
The yard is trashed as per normal but I did find a bit of chives and oregano in the mess of leaves. Hey, its something green and that is so much better than white snow!
Then one thing led to another and I decided we needed to reorganize ALL of our liquor. WOW, we really are drunks. Well, I decided that we needed to do something after we came back from the liquor store.
I was storing Christmas gifts and odds and ends in the cabinet. Oh and ignore the cat, he needed attention.
This is the cabinet in the rec room.
I often wonder how somethings end up in certain places. Den has his record player in the game room but the records were in the cabinet in the other room.
Once we had a game plan, we stared gathering up the liquor from all of the hiding places we had in the house.
In boxes in the game room.
And in a few cabinets in the kitchen. Even Den started laughing because we just kept remembering more places where we had liquor stashed. We even had some mixed in with our 2 liters of pop. We decided to leave a few things in the frig. Hey, who wants warm Boones?
And done! We grouped what we could together. The Russians and the Mexicans got the entire center section. I hope they continue to get along.
Den was a good sport about reorganizing but maybe it was because we kept tasting all the different alcohol. I mean really, we earned a drink or five after that project.
And everything has a new home. I'm thinking that I need to clean out the gift closet next. Sigh, that one will be a beast. Maybe if I get Den to taste a bunch of different alcohols he will be more willing to help with the gift closet.
On Sunday, we were going to kick back and powerview Stargate and eat roast. Maybe drink a bit but that is a given. Then my MIL called and my SIL and her hub and my nephews made it in early and they wanted to know if we wanted to come over for dinner. Sure, I mean every one cooks their roast for 8 hours.
The boys found my MIL's guitar and Den tried his best to teach Justin. The child picked his nose more than the guitar.
Andrew slapped it a few times and then went back to doing what he does best, kicking his brother. I normally don't get involved in other people's childrens fights but an all out war was about to break out. Damn those kids are cute.
And now I'm off to rest and possible plot what I'm going to reorganize next weekend. Or what we should drink.
Spent,
Sonya Ann

Fabulous Friday

This is from Scribble Sketch! Homemade towels would be awesome! I'm starting to think that I need a sewing machine. Den would probably be a really good sew-er. I mean he is great in the kitchen so why not at sewing. I think I should bring this up to him at our next meeting.

Dehydrated Drinks

Did you ever concoct a plan so brilliant that you scared your man? I didn't think that it could happen but it has. Den questioned my latest money saving plan. This coming from the man that threw an entire brick of jumping jacks into a lit grill. Or the same man that set off a quarter stick of dynamite in the pool. Or the time he was sloppy drunk with the neighbors and told one of the other drunk husbands that his back was hurting. That drunk husband proceeded to give my barely walking husband 2 Vicodin. I drug him out the door and home that minute. Cuz I knew if I waited there was no getting him home. I will not point out the fact that I destroyed myself one of Den's birthdays and tried to say Happy Birthday the next morning and all that came out was a belch. Our problems seem to revolve around alcohol. We are fun and it seems rarely sober.
Anywho, I'm on super saver mode for our vacation to Vegas. And since the state doesn't seem to care that our refund was going to pay for our trip, I'm trying to scrape up as much money before we go in case the state of IL fails us. I have a few funds I can rob but I like to challenge myself to "find" money. And that is when I had a brilliant idea. We should stop buy alcohol and drink ourselves dry. The only problem with this plan is that some of the stuff we don't like and there is only small bits in other bottles that we do like. Translated-we would be mixing our nightly beverages. The good news is we didn't drink bleach. I don't know why Den even pulled that out. All I have to say is, thank goodness I'm the one in charge here.
Oh and so you know, Chocolate Martinis and Tequila aren't a good mix during the week. Cow Pie shouldn't be added in either. Just saying.
Have you ever come up with a brilliant plan like this?
Sober?

Everything and Nothing Tuesday

So much to drink tell and so little time. I'll get you caught up fast enough. I know you have been waiting eagerly. Not really, you are probably just bored.
Never fear, my love for alcohol and being cheap will never waver. I can feel how proud you are of me. Remember the coupon from the liquor store for $5 off $50 or $10 off $100, well I used it. My BIL sends me for bourbon all the time. He's in OH and doesn't get to our liquor store often. The liquor store is quite well known for its selection. Me, I go straight for the Boone's so that's all the selection I need.
Anywho, it was $117 for my BIL's hooch so I grabbed $10 worth of cheap alcohol for us and got it for free. Cheap drunks and damned proud of it!
My FIL is recovering very quickly. He is following the doctor's instructions to a T. After the surgery, the doctor had said that he had been doing it for so long that he could eyeball it and see if it had spread and if he had gotten it all. His eyeball gave us the all clear. The test results were not. Damned eyeballs. It seems that radiation is in his future. We are all thankful that it isn't a fast moving cancer but still, its not something that you want to hear.
I have resorted to taking pictures of the pool because I believe this is as close as I'm going to get to a summer. It's still cold, snowy and all around crappy here.
 No really, the pool is draining itself and I'm using my pics to track it. My life is sad.
This was from this weekend. It's nice and black. But it seems to have stopped draining. Now we just have to find the leak. It will be somewhere at the water line. This is better than having it all drain out. The walls can collapse if there isn't water in it.

Anna is doing well in Cali. She is still so happy and she found a job. She is going to be nannying for a billionaire's two children. They are 12 and 14. I'm proud of her but still wondering what she has gotten herself into. But hey, this is something that she has talked about doing for a long time. I'm proud of her that she found a job so quickly and she is going after her dreams. I'm wondering how long this can last though. She is starting at $13 an hour but will increase by $2 increments. That's not much for someone with a teaching degree trying to make it in CA. She will get a company car and a credit card. Knowing how she charges, he may be broke soon. LOL. It seems she was only out of control with us. If nothing else, it should make for some interesting stories.
Since we have such crap windows, we have to put plastic up every year. I love when I take it down and we can start opening windows. Down with the plastic usually means things are getting warmer around here. Not this year. The cat has discovered that if he jumps high enough he can slide down the plastic and shred it with his back claws. It's nice and drafty in the front room and it sure isn't warm here. The cat is slowly becoming my arch enemy.
I got a massive $15 from Pinecone Research and $30.80 from BP. Go Christmas, no really, go Sonya.
So we have..............
$30         Pinecone Research
$69.59    BP
For a total of $99.59!!!
The good news is Den and I booked flights with his parents to Vegas in October. This will be so much fun and was something that seemed to really perk up both of his parents. I paid $44.80 for 4 round trip tickets. Well sort of. I have been charging DJ's tuition. EIU didn't make you pay the fee if you used the credit card, Ball state makes you pay the fee. It's about $200 twice a year but we bank enough in points for 3+ tickets. Plus everything else that I do helps boost the points. We are earning between 4-6 round trip tickets and that is going to Vegas. If we went to Florida since it is fewer points/closer, we would have 8+ round trip tickets. The high end, we might be paying $90ish a RT flight to Vegas. The only draw back is you have to book 6 months in advance to get them cheap. Did I mention that we are going in April too? Plus we get compt the rooms. I'm happy.
And that's all you get,
Sonya Ann

Klingon Luggage

I have a super easy tip for you and your college student! Yes, pack them off and be done with them. See how smart I am! And I'm spent(Little Austin Powers for you).
Whenever Anna or DJ would come home for a long visit or break, we would be in gathering mode. I would pick up little things and food and store them in the closet until they could take them back with them. And then right before we would leave to take them back to college, we would head to the store for a big shopping extravaganza to load them up. Food(specifically, mac and cheese and anything else that can be cooked in the microwave. Really, they should have a microwave cooking course for college students. I mean if they can teach Klingon as a course, why not microwave cooking? I think that would be more useful. But then again if they did run into a Klingon, offering them anything other than gagh would be a dishonor. Oh and gagh is always served fresh. Just FYI.), shampoo, oh and Arnold Palmer Tea. So by the time that we get done we have quite a few bags of goodies. Have you ever tried to get a rolling cart at a college on the day that the kids return? Its more of a fight to the death sort of thing. And don't even try to get a parking place close. Just don't do it because even if you find a close spot, some D'bag is going to park behind you when you are unloading your kid and you will be stuck there.
Anywho, instead of fighting with your kid and trying to carry everything that they don't need into the room just throw it in your luggage with wheels. You would be shocked how many cases of water and tea you can get into rolling luggage.
Walk into their room, unzip the luggage, dump their crap on the bed and then flip them off wave goodbye as you leave with the empty luggage. I'm It's that easy!
Sometimes, I look back at my posts and think, "how the hell did that find its way in there?" I often think that about my life too.
Another ADHD post,
Sonya Ann

Sick, Cured, And Gone Tuesday

Have I got a lot to catch you up on!!!!! Kick back, this may take a while.
GOOD NEWS! Den's dad is cancer free, as the doctor put it. We are all so relieved. He was upset before surgery, rightfully so and said that no one was to come to the hospital. I shrugged. Its not my place to get in this fight. Den took off work and said we were going. So I suggested that we go to the hospital after his dad was in surgery and we sit with his Mom. So that's what we did. She was so very grateful and quite pitiful. It broke my heart on so many levels, it also scares me about what is to come. They are getting older. And......ok, I'll stop there. It's upsetting to continue down this path. Anyways, he is doing well.
Den, Donna and I picked up some nasty super bug from all of our time at the hospital. We were there close to 10 hours and were exposed to God knows what. I had such a high fever at one point that it really and truly felt as if my eyeballs were heating up. I can say that I never felt that sensation before in my life. I found some antibiotics in the cabinet and that helped IMMENSELY.
I thought my get well gift the little bear with the bandaids on his privates was funny. I mean how could you suffer when you have that bear to look at.
Den was insistent that we get the "You're #1" balloon. He wrote on the balloon, I know its your favorite finger, dad. We ooze class.
FYI, don't get sick around us, we will probably just poke fun of you.
Anna is now a Californian. Having my eyeballs boil was a good distraction from my heartache. She is happy and is on the adventure of her life. I was shocked how she came up with a working plan and saved a ton of cash to get them there. Hmmmmmm, amazing how she could SAVE MONEY when she had to pay for it.
I'll hopefully see her in April when we go to Vegas. And they are coming home in June for a wedding so I should be able to hold it together for a while. I just hope that when DJ spreads his wings he doesn't end up on the east coast. I don't think that I would ever be able to collect enough miles to fly them back and forth and visit them too.
There was a bit of worry about both of their cars making the LONG drive but they did without incidence. Anna brought both of the cars into a shop to check them out before they left Charleston. She even had a coupon. Bless her, not the shop. They wanted $500 to change her timing chain and do an oil change. They wanted $600 to replace Scott's oil pan. Anna called Den quite upset. Den said the timing chain is normal maintenance for a car over 100k miles and wasn't that bad of a price but it could wait. Anna said Scott's car wasn't leaking oil at all. Anna is the car guy in their relationship. She is like me. Hard to believe but I was the one that did all of the car maintenance when Den and I first got together.  Den worked with a mechanic for years and he took Den under his wing and taught him about cars on the weekends. Mike(the mechanic) has saved us tons of money over the years with the knowledge that he gave. I always say a prayer of thanks for Mike when Den fixes a car. I also pray that Den doesn't kill us. Den and Mike once caught a car on fire. That was crazy. And then there was the time that Den had gas spraying out of the side of the motor because everything wasn't in place. Bless him.
And that's all you get from me. I'm going to try and do a few things around the house and not think about Anna or the future or my cold or my eyeballs. Maybe I should just start Happy Hour now. It would cure so many things.
Tired,
Sonya Ann

Drunk Packing

Did you ever buy something and then think, "what the hell am I going to do with this?" I saw this suitcase at a garage sale for $1 and thought it needs to come home with me. Mind you, it matches nothing here but it called to me. I never do that but it was $1 and cute. So I packed it full of presents in the gift closet so it wasn't really taking up any room and then left it there.
I had been storing all of my card making supplies in one of the drawers in Anna's room. It was getting hard to drag everything around and then I remembered the luggage. This will make it so much easier to lug to the kitchen table. It also slides under Anna's bed easily. Again, the cat had to be in the picture. The lid wouldn't close with him in it. Damn.
Do you ever see something and buy it only to use it at a later date? I normally don't do things like that just so that I keep the clutter down. 
And GREAT NEWS PEOPLE!!!! The local liquor store sent out a COUPON!!!! Yay for getting a discount on our alcoholism. Den and I were both VERY EXCITED! All I can say is the economy must be on the upswing!!!
Drunk cards,
Sonya Ann
PS-Hey, Frances over at Looking forward to being more frugal is having a Dial giveaway!!! Run over there and say hi but don't enter because I want to win. Ok fine, you can enter but I get to win.

Pickled, Nuclear Panties

My freezer pickles are done! So what do I do when they are done? I give them away. Maybe this is why I can't get our grocery bill down. No really, I'm fine with giving them away. We have a lot of wonderful people in our life and they need some pickles as repayment. Two of the ladies that Den works with spoil him rotten. Hey, someone has to be nice to him. They feed him all of the time. So I try and send a little something every once in a while for them. And then my inlaws looked like they needed some pickles. And my awesome neighbor that dug us out a few times when the snow was really deep was in desperate need of pickles. The good news is I have gotten rid of quite a few glass jars. They were falling out of the cabinet when I opened the doors under the sink.
Den found this massive grapefruit at the supermarket and said we had to try it. It's real name is Pomelo but I'm thinking it is a normal grapefruit that was raised by a nuclear power plant. I put it next to the window cleaner and a normal grapefruit just so you could see the size difference. The bowl jumped in the picture of its own accord.
It was $2.99 for that sucker. It was easy to peel and had quite a bit of fruit. It was a bit drier than normal grapefruit and didn't have the bite that a normal grapefruit has but it was good. I won't pay that much again for a grapefruit on steroids though. Den I'm not sure about. And now you know why I can't seem to hold the grocery bill at $100 a week. It's the grapefruit.
I read this recipe for an awesome drink that we all need to try. I just can't remember where I read it at. Sorry to the person that posted it, I hope your knickers get dropped.
Its called Panty Droppers. I know how bad and how much fun does it sound?!?!?!
1 bottle of vodka
5-6 bottle of cheap lite beer
2 frozen concentrate pink lemonade
Mix, drink and drop your drawers.
This is so going to the top of the To Do List. I may need to get a few people over to help me drink it all. Maybe.
Messed up,
Sonya Ann

Bandaged, Cold Minions

Ahhhh, this was a lovely picture that DJ took as we were speeding driving ever so carefully back to Ball State.I made the trip in 10 hours! It normally takes me 12. Now before you go calling the cops, it is supposed to be a 9 hour round trip drive but with the wind, ice, and accidents it always took 12. Relax there, Robocop.

It has been crazy here. Let's see, where to start?
DJ was home last week. Bless his sloppy heart. Every morning, I would get up and there were wrappers and cups everywhere. I didn't know that we had that many cups. He might have been bringing in wrappers and trash from other people's houses. Every room had his destruction in it. I did manage to hold my tongue until the day and then I got all momesque on his ass. He was also a crab-ass on the trip back because he was tired because he was out late. Not my problem and we had to have another readjustment. Don't get me wrong, I missed him just not his snarky mouth or mess.
Anna also came in for a long visit because this was the last time she would be able to before she moved to CA. She is moving on Friday. Yes, Friday the 13th. She has my luck so what could go wrong?
I also got a refresher course in all that is Anna. She will always help me clean up. Always. In fact, she helped quite a bit with the aftermath of DJ. She complained terrible about her brother which made me laugh, she sounds so much like me. And I'm glad that she gets it now. But Anna is our social butterfly, we would wake up and people would be asleep in various rooms. Den asked me one night while he was trying to make dinner, how many people should he cook for? I said, figure on anywhere from 3 to 13. We ended up with 6 that night.
I have to say though, they are getting easier to be around. I should have sent them to college and let them learn life's struggles at about 15. Maybe 12.
I'll keep you posted on Anna and her move. I'm sure it will be an adventure. It does seem like she has everything planned out. She really is turning into her mother. She even argued with Scott about getting rid of a lot of his things and the argument sounded like one that I had had with Den many times. It sounded a bit like, "In your mind, that argument is acceptable?" "And you really think that this will work?" All ended with, "Something is wrong with you."
I think I can finally say that she is on the upswing. It was always an adventure with her.
DJ is smart but is mouthy and sloppy. He always seemed to get it sooner than Anna even though he is 4 years younger. He was 3 credits shy of being a sophomore after his first semester in college. He's smart just a slob. I guess I think my kids will be alright when I see they act, sound, and do things like I do. So basically I wanted minions.
My FIL is having surgery today. So I will be out and about today. I'm sure that he will be fine and I will keep everyone posted. And thank you all for the prayers/vibes/well wishes. I love you guys.
And I did get to see one thing that I haven't seen in a while when taking DJ back to school, no not the bird poop but the ground! We are still a white and cold tundra. We may live on Hoth. I'm so geeky and guess what, so are my kids! Maybe we should move the moon of Endor. Oh and in case you ever need to be cool and look something up about Star Wars just go to Wookieepedia! THAT IS AWESOMENESS!
Out of here,

Time To Rebel!

I would like it to be 80 degrees out please. I took these pictures a couple of days ago. I'm still lagging behind. Let's blame the children, shall we?
I have decided that I'm just going to act like it is nice out. I'm skipping the rest of the yucky weather and I'm going to act like its 80-90 outside. So this is me rebelling and planting a garden. Its a pretty easy garden to keep up too. Den came home from work and walked in the door laughing. He was like, "you have had it with the cold, I take it."
Wanna join me in the rebellion?

Those Women

I may be turning into one of those women. You know the kind, the ones that spend stupid amounts of time on silly little projects, like organizing and making everything all cutsie. Ok, to be completely honest, I have LONGED to be one of them but my kids and husband were stopping me. I know that you aren't supposed to say that they are ruining our lives and making messes but I'm being Oprah honest. They kinda suck the life out of us. And they don't seem to be bothered by it. Rat bastards.They really ruined the image that I had in my head of what kind of mother/wife I would be. I wanted someone to see my house and all the cute things and be like, "WOW, I'm so jealous and I so want to be you." I mean doesn't everybody long to be a fat, unemployed housewife. My life goals are high. Like I said, be jealous.
Anywho, I managed to tape the ever living shit out of most things in DJ's closet. And I even broke down and bought 3 baskets from (GULP) JoAnn Fabrics. They were $8 each even after all of the coupons.
See how much better it looks. And then I closed the doors and no one can see it. Yeah, that's about right.
If you look at the first picture, you can see that the cat was trying to get in the picture again. He's turning into my arch enemy.
And I've been making a few cards here and there. Again, I really think that I could find better uses of my time, like writing a book or something.
Faking cutsie,
That women

Most Boring Tuesday Review


No, I'm not pregnant. It's just a bit boring around here. Not that I'm complaining or anything. In my book, exciting usually means catastrophe.
Both of the kids are home. You would think that there would be a lot to write about but they pretty much are lumps either on the couch or in bed.

DJ is on spring break and I get to drive him back on Sunday. Yeah for another 12 hour round trip drive. It seems that no matter what I do, I hit rush hour in Indianapolis ever FLIPPING TIME! The only good thing about driving DJ is Captain D's in Muncie. If you ever get a chance, try the shrimp skewers. Hey, how about you drive DJ back and I'll buy you lunch? Yes, that sounds like a great plan.
This picture is a blast from the past. It was from Anna's senior year in high school. It was their last powder puff football game. She was quite the force to be reckoned with.
This is Anna's last visit for a while. She will be leaving in about 2 weeks for California. Sigh. We do have a plan though. We are going to fly to Vegas and it will only be a 4.5 hour drive for her to meet us there. And on the off chance that California doesn't work out, they will be heading to Phoenix, it is about a 4 hour drive for them to meet us in Vegas from Arizona. I would hate to book a flight to California and find out that she moved. That's kind of how things work with Anna. Bless her. Vegas is a better bet for us. LOL.
She also texted me before she came home that she found a place for $550 a month. Den was like, well which will be first and how long before, being robbed, raped or killed. DJ said we sound like a morbid Price is Right. I'll choose 2 weeks and the next contestant will choose 2 weeks and 1 day. She forgot to tell me that $550 was her part, the total for the month was $1650. Again Bless her. And not too long after that she told me that she bought plane tickets for her friends. WTF!!!!! How does she have money for that!!! Again, she left out the part that they will be helping them drive out there and then they were paying for their return tickets. Oh well, that doesn't sound so bad when it is explained. I'm trying to learn to take my pure panic down a notch with her. It's more like detective work.
I got nothing for my sad little Christmas fund but I did pick up some candles super cheap. I just need to save not spend money. Remind me of that.
And that's all I have for you unless you want to come and help me do the ever growing mounds of dishes and laundry. Not that I have started complaining, I did miss them both. But by the end of the week, I'm sure I will have something to say about the glasses that are stuck to the shelf in DJ's room.
Cleaning detective,
Sonya Ann
