Happy Friday I think and a book review....

Happy Friday folks!
I think anyway, I'm moving so all I get to do is packpackpack.
I did get to travel recently by book, to Hawaii, thanks to author Donald J. Carey.
Bumpy Landings is a must read for all who would like to experience Hawaii.
WATCH my review now...please?

I know during some of the video I stood too close...oopsie. But the book is just fabulous!
I just had to share..
Now back to packing...UGH.

What? It's Wednesday already?

Thanks Google for the image this morning. I'm too lazy to share a latest pic with you all. Or too busy, I'm not sure which.
Sheesh! I can't believe how the time runs away from me.  I know I am suppose to post a video of me licking frosting off my fingers while attempting the ABC's...BUT I'm not at home right now.
I'm busy following up on some job leads, putting the rest of the deposit at the new place we are renting and registering my kids for their NEW school.


And yet somewhat disillusioned. Let me explain. When my hubby and I left Cedar City, UT the first time...Yeah, that's it I told you where I will be living. Be nice. I felt glad to be moving OUT of Cedar. Now?

I am ecstatic. I am overjoyed. I am thrilled. And I don't even have a job yet. Oh but I will. WE will. Mesquite was good, I met some nice folks there, but financially it sucked. I won't lie to you. I am hoping that this year, 2011, will be a successful year for us.  It can't get any worse can it?
  Anywaaay, if my blog posts are random and seem to go on forever it's because I'm doing a TON over here. But I love you all and will continue to blogblogblog to my heart's content. Because you all got me through the toughest time in my life. (Ya the these last 2 years have not been easy, you know)
  One thing that we do have to do is get rid of our cats. The place we are moving is pet friendly BUT there is a 300 deposit initially, AND an extra 10 bucks a month. Things being the way they are...we are giving the pets away to a pet store here in town. (Well the city we are moving to has a pet store.) Mesquite? Notsomuch....*smalltownliving--it's really small*
   Sooooo, I am preparing my mind for this endeavor. My MIL has taken the last 2 kittens of my cat's litter so we can visit these guys any time we wish...and play with them and such. We will get another pet when there is money...I promise. (I'm promising myself this more than anything.)
  So if I'm teary or something, it's because I had to give my 2 beloved cats away...(Can't afford to have them fixed right now or they would be outside cats...ya they are female)
My EXCITEMENT for all things new is overwhelming and exciting all at the same time. We got the apartment here in Cedar and we are gonna move in March 1. Wow. Time flies when you are blogging...or having fun. ;) And then the jobs will want me. And then I'll be super busy...and then I won't blog?


I will always blog...
Love you peeps...because I think I am rambling again. Thanks for listening.

President's day-Monday Mingle

Eighty MPH Mom Blog

Helloooooo there!
I'm mingling on President's Day.  Cool huh? Today is gonna be a clean-up-the-kitchen-and-pack-up-what-you-can-day.
Since we are moving and all. So EXCITED.

It's time.

The video challenge video will be posted later today...I hope. I need to get some packing done first. M'kay? That's gonna be my reward for later...LOL.
Love you my friends!
Have a SUPER week!

I just couldn't sleep.

Thank you Google for this image.

I woke up at 6 o' clock in the morning today. I can't sleep. My mind is excited for the upcoming possibilities that are headed my way. For the first time in almost 2 years I feel extremely happy. I have my CNA (certified nurse assistant) license back and I'm ready. I'm ready to get back in the workforce again. My youngest is three and she will be alright I'm sure. (She will get to stay with her Grandma while I am at work.)

We are also moving. Not just down the street or anything like that, but we are moving back to UT. I feel very EXCITED to be getting out of this town. I am grateful for the friends I have made here but it is time for us to move on. My wonderful in laws are helping us with a move back to the city they live in. (an hour and a half north of where I am right now)
What? I don't want to tell you exactly where I might live. You might stalk me in real life or something.

I will be doing the regular Monday mingle later...of course, because I'm addicted to the video camera.  AND also stay tuned because I will be doing that "challenge" you all would like to see me do. ;)

Don't worry, I'm not gonna stop blogging. I might not be able to get to everyone's blogs like I used to...but eventually I will have some time to stop by your place. (Leave a comment that will assure you that I WILL stop by.) I will never give up blogging.

I love it too dang much. (and writing. I love to write and click PUBLISH.)

If you haven't made a guess yet on Is she crazy??!! Please go do so now. Because I'm crazy, and would LOVE to see you watch another video of mine...:)
Until next time...

I picked a winner...Finally!

Yep, yep, you heard me right. I chose the winner to the SNORG Tee giveaway...
Watch the video to see who WON! ;)

Thursday, February 17, 2011

If you have just 3 minutes today...WATCH this video.

I've never been abused sexually or physically. Neither have my daughters.
I hope we never EVER have to suffer that fate.
BUT there have some women and men who have suffered.
And I want to show them I care.
That I support their speaking up about their abuse.
Because no ONE should have to be silenced.
No one.

I want to thank Amber at AmberPageWrites for bringing this to my attention today. Thank you.
Just watch.

Uh-oh I might be in trouble

A few days ago I announced on my giveaway post (I'm giving away a snorg Tee have you heard?) Anyhoo, I announced that I was almost to 400 followers and If I reached 400 followers before the giveaway ended I'd do something.
Something to make you laugh.
Something to make you spit your drink out on the computer screen.
lol. It's NOOOOOT My computer screen you'd be making a mess on.

So I have a few ideas.
But I need your help to decide.
Please vote in the comments for what you want me to do.
Please note: All attempts will be video-recorded and posted online.

1. Eating peanut butter and crackers while attempting to whistle.
2. Balancing a spoon on my nose.
3. Licking frosting off all my fingers while singing the alphabet song.

Ok. Those are the challenges I came up with so far.
You got a new one?
Let me know.
I might do it. I'm up for anything legal.

So congrats to me! I hit 400 followers. I never actually thought I could do it.
I hope I stay at 400 for a while. Sometimes blogger likes to mess with me and tell me I've got less that I really got. *sigh*  Oh well., right?

Congrats to ME and YOU...because hey let's face it, I'd be no where without you guys. A BIG Thank-YOU to Jayme at the Random Blogette for making me have 400 followers. (She was my 400th one!) Thanks Jayme! ;)

Remember leave your votes on WHAT I should do in the comments below. I'll pick a challenge Friday and post on Monday.
Anything goes people. ;) (Within reason....M'kay? The sky's the limit but I do get the final say....) ;) (wink, wink)

Take a listen and find out who has my heart.
Can you tell I'm having a lot of fun with the video camera? ;)

I guess I'll allow one picture too.

Look! It's a Valentine's bash with Mary Mommyolgist!

I'm sexy and I LOVE ME. Remember @TheMommyologist? A few months ago she challenged us to say nothing bad about my body and I did that BUT now she is holding a bash for Valentine's. Yeah, you heard me right. A Valentine PART-AY!

Here's the invitation Mary did just for us...(I LOVE that red sequin top she has on!)

All you have to do is write up a blog post saying why you love yourself and WHY you are AWESOME! Or you could make a video...Then go to her fabulous site/linky and watch other fabulous blogger ladies state WHY they love themselves...(Only nice commenters need apply.)
And since we all know how addicted to the video camera I am...

Sum up: (Just in case your sound isn't working.)
Reasons why Cluttered Brain is fabulous.
1. I have great hair. And I just LOVE my hair! Seriously, I do.
2. I love my smile and MY lips...
3. My mad cleaning skills. (Ya, I clean. For reals.)
4. My boobs. (I cannot tell a lie.)
4. My humor. (although I didn't say that in the video I pretty much implied it.)
5. My dance moves. (I even danced a little in the video.)
6. My "Mom Sexy" confidence that I have.

Just watch the video. Seriously, you are missing out if you don't.

I'll be watching the rest of the link-ups with my new favorite celebrity Valentine--


I'll see around blogland. M'kay?
Happy Valentine's Day people! Spread the LOVE and link up TODAY. (It runs through Feb 18th.)

GRRRRRR! I can't take it anymore!!!!!!!!

Well, not YOU. MY neighbor is the bag of douche.
UGH. I have STUPID ASSININE neighbors on both sides of me. And one of them rings my doorbell.
I answer.
She says, "Your music is really REALLY loud. It's louder than our TV."
So I say, "Shove it lady, I don't care. Just because you don't LIKE the music I listen to."
Yeah I wish I said that. I'm too dang nice for my own good.
I really said, "The music is off now." *sigh*

I just really really want to listen to my music.
I want to crank up the tunes.
I want a release from this h*ll I live in.

I don't think living in a desert is nice anymore.
I want to MOVE.
And believe you me, we will move.

And when we do, I'll knock on her door and say,
"Your TV is WAY damn too loud. Could you turn it off? 'Cause uh, I need you to hear my wheels as they squeal AWAY from here. M'kay? Lay off the next neighbors who decide to move in ok? Cause seriously lady, YOU are a REAL KILLJOY."

*I apologize for the language used in this post. I am really pissed and need to burn off some steam.*

Now back to the regularly scheduled music.

CRANK UP the music and ENJOY! ;)

Who cares what the old lady next door thinks?
I should have told her my music isn't even on. You are hearing things....

Peace OUT.
Have an AWESOME weekend!

Don't let old neighbor ladies get you down.
I'm not anymore.

CRANK it UP!!!!

I don't know about you but...

I'm tired. I've been that way for a little while.
I know where I'm going but I'm tired of waiting to get there. I always seem to be waiting on somebody else-

  • the mechanic to tell me the sum total of my car
  • the nice people at a home health agency place to tell me whether or not I have a job
  • My tax refund. (hubby is filing tonight.)
  • whether or not the good people of Subway will offer my husband a manager position.
  • whether or not I will EVER have a working car. Period.
  • Waiting for inspiration on a blog post...I am about to post this at 2:09 PM on a Tuesday. Who is gonna see this? Hmm...I wonder. (LOL.)

    But you know how I BUST out of the "waiting period"?
    I vlog.

    I make videos when I'm freezing. (OK, I know I have some of you that it is actually snowing but it gets cold here too. Just because the sun is shining doesn't mean it is warm.) To the contrary.

    Point 1:

    And to the few of you that haven't watched my Blogapalooza vlogs, I'm bringing back the goodness TODAY. Watch and enjoy. Please? It would bring joy to my heart if you watched.
    And commented.

    Honestly, do you think I will ever stop vlogging?  (You don't have to answer that.) *I won't. I might be the only 80 year old Grandma who still likes to record themselves...*sigh* when I turn 80 of course....*
    :) I'm feeling better today. And I think I nailed the interview.
    I hope they choose me!

    If you like what you see, and I'm sure you do...check me out I have a brand NEW Youtube channel.

    Have you listen to my story yet?

    Monday mingle 2-7

    Yeah yeah I'm late linking up. Well, since everyone links up Sunday
    I actually mingled on a Monday. :)
    HA! So there.

    Here it is.
    No captions this week. I'm too sicky. (Stuffy nose and such.) I need a tissue every 5 seconds.
    Oh and the latest news is our "other" car has blown its head gasket as well...
    Mechanic will call us in an hour for the total.
    But Cheers to mingling!
    I WILL come out on top. Despite what my car wants to tell me.

    Happy Monday! Hope you all have super week this week. *May your cars all RUN better than mine.*

    4 lies and a TRUTH

    I've been tagged. Ya, that's right.
    @totallyovarit  tagged me.  She'd like to see what lies (AND a truth) I can come up with.
    So here it goes.

    Here are the rules:

    "You must list 5 things about yourself; 4 of them must be bold-faced lies. Just make some shit up, we'll never know; one of them has to be true, though. Of course, nobody will ever know the difference, so we're just on the honor system here. I trust you. Except for the 4 you lied about, you lying bastards! But don't go crazy trying to think of stuff as we're not really interested in quality here. Then you must pass this on to 5 bloggers."

    1. I'm not addicted to Twitter at all. Nope. Just because I have 1,601 followers and over 14,000 tweets. It means nothing I tell you.

    2. I had straight A's in high school.

    3. I can't stand obnoxious smells and perfumes. I will never understand why some women have to wear so MUCH lotions and perfumes. It makes me sneeze. I like to wear perfume myself but I don't put on it heavy. I currently have a heavy lotion and perfume wearer in my own house. She just passed me. AaaaaaCHOO!

    4. Every boy liked me in high school. In fact I was voted homecoming queen when I was a Junior in high school. Suck it losers!

    5. I had 2 different guys ask me to be their date for prom. I picked the one that I thought would spend the most money on me. Because that's how I am.
    Ahem, my prom dates.Which guy did I choose?

    I'm tagging

    If SnuggieWasteland can participate in 4 lies and a truth, so can YOU!

    Wordless Wednesday-It's a good thing.

    My mind is tired and I cannot think.
    But I wanted to post a picture for Wordless Wednesday.
    Because a picture is worth a thousand words isn't it?

    I did not take this picture. Daughter 1 did. Do NOT steal. That's just rude.

    i didn't take these pictures. This is what happened when I left my camera out the other day.
    I hate to see what would happen if I left the Flip out. Uh-oh. I better go check the videos.

    The culprit?

    She even took a picture of herself so I would know who took all of these CRAZY pictures of Daughter 3.

    I guess I'm not as wordless as I thought.
    Geez. It's WEDNESDAY! Finally. This week is hurrying right along.

    Because I want more Bliss. (and video cameras too!)

    Creating videos gives me bliss. I love it when the video camera gets turned on me. I love taking pictures of my kids of the silly things they do. Winning a signed cybershot camera (signed by Taylor Swift) would be AWESOME. Mainly because of my obsession for all things video.

    My 11 year old would freak and I would probably wet my pants.

    It would be an AWESOME sight to behold I'm sure. (LOL.)

    I'm sure there would be a TON of squealing involved.

    Well, since I think I am the master of video and all...I am telling my Cluttered Brain Story.
    Why I LOVE video and all. How it started for me and stuff like that.

    I hope you will watch the video, recorded with my FlipHD of course. ;)

    And then if you have any time at all, for a minute or two anyway, come listen to a video that came out oh so horribly wrong. I sound like a smurf in a badly dubbed japanese film. *sigh*
