Mean Fish Mom

Pissed my oscars off tonight. Eh… it’s for the best, just ask my kids!!! I had just the one Oscar in a 38 gallon tank until about a month ago.

I went to a small business fish store last month and fell in love with an oscar that was probably about 2 years old. Some douche thought he was dead and tried to flush him down the toilet. He was, of course, too big to fit down the drain so was fished out (LMFAO). To captain douche’s surprise, Oscar 2 was not dead after all. He then brought him to a fish guy. I was in said fish guy’s place of business and, like I said, fell in love… With this fish and his story. I had to have him. I have had my Oscar for over 6 years now and was a little concerned about adding this baby to the tank. Not because of my fish but because this baby O had a really “street” attitude! I took the chance and my big O complied. He let the little guy strut his stuff for a while and then put him in his place.

Either way, I got them a bigger home (65) so they have room to breathe but I had to keep them in a bucket while I made the move. It is not small task to drain and break down a 38 AND setup and fill a 65. Also, I wanted to try under the gravel filtration so that was a project all its own. It took me quite a while.

By re-homing time, everyone was mad… More like stressed. Big O was laying down and baby O is shock-white. El Pleco is just lazing about. They seem like they are getting a little better though. I am probably more stressed than they are. I would be devastated if I lost any little fishy.


Match: Day 18

One more day people! I don’t know why I am so excited, I am not turning 13 or 16 or┬áAAEAAQAAAAAAAAdVAAAAJGU0ODNiYTFhLTY5OWMtNGU3NC05Zjg1LTJhNTQ0ZDI5ZGQxMweven 21!

I keep seeing the ad on my Hulu stream and I was just about to text “FREE” to the number so that I can enjoy 7 days of free Match and find a boyfriend for my birthday… but I forget the number to text…

Oh Well… Back to the drawing board.

Date Night!!! What a day

Hey My loves! It’s date night.. It should have been a double date tonight with you and that young guy ­čśë Sadly I bowed out of the meet up with him. I had no choice… Well obviously I did, but I just couldn’t do it. The stress from everything that is going on in the world has produced 1 very huge pimple on my good side!!! every photo this week has sucked and this morning I woke up to 2 small undercover ones on my chin… I didn’t even want to face the world.

Enough about that drama on the brighter things…

I plan on getting fit this winter. Everyone sets these ridiculous New Years resolutions to do this or that. I will be starting now and definitely will be following Tone while I plan to beat the winter blues.

I definitely lack the proper hydration. I really enjoy coffee and basically live off of the stuff. I will be keeping close watch on my water intake. As noted on Water Water everywhere post, I will be jazzing my water up so that it’s more fun to drink.

To end the beginning of my new me… I plan to quit smoking tomorrow! Yep I said it. I have tried (not really) to quit smoking many, many, times. I just wasn’t ready. I never told anyone (except for Archer) what I was doing so I had zero support on that journey (Archer actually sabotaged the whole thing). I am making my public declaration right here and right now! Tomorrow is my quit day!!!

I will also be adding Yoga to my repertoire.┬áI will be doing this 30 day Yoga with Adriene┬á… I will take a before ┬ápicture and update this post this evening before I begin the 30 days to a new me.

I love you all…

Stay true to you


Happy Date night loves

It’s that time again. The time where we get together and hang out. I would love to tell you all the amazing things that have happened to me this week.

1st. I got an amazing phone call from someone giving me exactly 1.37 million dollars.

Can you tell that was total BS? I hope so because it obviously was! Absolutely nothing interesting happened to me this weekend.

I got another email from Uber telling me that in just 15 rides I will receive 100 bonus from directing another driver to Uber.

I got an email from a casino reminding me to log in. I don’t really remember joining this online casino and apparently it was years ago that I did this, but it has a balance of $203.

My oldest bought me an awesome bracelet from “school holiday shop”, my youngest bought me a coffee mug.. Who knew they would think to get something for mom! Makes me feel like┬áI’m doing something right.

I worked this morning and had a chance to visit with my therapist friend this afternoon. We talked about the kids and Christmas, she introduced me, via webpage, to her photographer because I really need to get more photos of the boys done. We chatted about how awful we looked “back in the day”. Personally I thought she looked very nice. We also went into detail about the classifications of alcohol abuse. This was very interesting to me because now I have more information.

Then the day started going silly.┬áI had been waiting all week for my invoice that should have been emailed on Tuesday. I finally got it and almost passed out when I saw the figure. I couldn’t believe how low it was. I decided to go through all the cases and compare them to the invoices prior. There are 12 cases that they didn’t pay! How could I be that oblivious? It’s not like I am rich or something.

And that is where I am right now, trying to get past the frustration that I am feeling and drinking a UFO!


I hope you are having a drink with me tonight, I could really use the company ­čÖé

Date Night Party Time!!!

OMG OMG OMG Guess what???

I spend just about everyday in my car listening to music. For about 4 months I’ve been stuck on “The Heat” Sirius Satellite radio station. I really don’t know the number sorry guys.

Tonight, I worked and therefore sang at the top of my lungs every song that came on the radio. It was a fun 3hr work night.

And then it happened! The most amazing thing.

A song came on and it was so fitting to this site. To my mood. To everything! So here is goes….

This will be my theme song.

Tonight on the list of things to do.. Catch up with you… Drink my beer and watch the Packers kick butt!! There is money on the line. Thank You FanDuel

Date night… And Turkey day!!

My aren’t we lucky, we get to spend the day of thanks together. I would like to be upfront with you by letting you know that I did not have wine tonight. I know you’re shocked. The reason is simple, I forgot to get some last night and today all the vineyards were closed.┬áInstead I had Grand Marnier.


It was spicy. And had a ton of laughs with the family (minus my boys, they were with their dad this TG)


Also, during this lovely evening of laughter and fun I noticed that I may have caught some feelings along the way. Remember when I told you about someone having so many things in common with you it felt kind of sketchy? Check it out, I really did.




Sure got rid of the chest congestion I have been feeling as of late.

And I think I’ll go with this so that it never happens again.


Besides, I believe in monogamy and You are the only one I’m dating for a while. I’ll break the news in the morning.

What are you drinking this date night?

I have really been diving right back into the craft beer thing. Tonight Blue moon seasonal brew is on the menu along with football and some internet browsing.


Basketball practice tonight with the youngest boy. He is getting so much better. He jumps pretty high and he is doing well with layups now!


Yep that white glare that is making that shot is my baby!!! My tiny love!

Now to the fun stuff.

First off OpinionatedMan DID NOT buy me a bottle of wine, but that’s okay because my birthday isn’t until January. I will definitely be looking forward to at least a photo of a wine bottle with the title being “Happy Birthday Crazy”.

kelzbelzphotography has the most captivating photo I’ve seen all day. This makes me crave those Spring and Summer months so much. I just wanted to sit in a field while the sun caresses my face when I saw this picture.

Joe gave me renewed hope this week. He has been making big moves and I only wish more would do the same.

I hope you are having a nice cold glass of something this evening, if not… Stop over and I’ll hook you up!

Stay true to you
