Time for EXes.

Thought I should devote some time to my exes here today.  After all my blog is about them, too.

                             Beater - Cheater
that just about sums them up.   #1 liked to beat me  #2 liked to cheat on me

great guys both of them really....  for someone else.

not much else to say but
on a serious note
              if your man is hitting you, controlling you, making you feel like shit....the time to run is NOW!!!!  
 misogynists come in many shapes and sizes....  read the book  MEN WHO HATE WOMEN, AND THE WOMEN WHO LOVE THEM.   it was helpful for me.

aren't they so cool?
always doing something  helpful.

and exercising their minds.

and being best friends

remembering back before they were teens...ah, the sweet days.

but I am excited about my children becoming adults....wish they would hurry up since I am going to need someone to take care of me soon.

Gramma Grammar

I am a little anal about grammar issues.
 Please if you are publishing the written word via Twitter, FB, blog etc.
try your hardest to remember these few rules:
    'i' before 'e' except after 'C' or when sounding like  'ay' as in neighbor or weigh.
    There- They're- Their.  ==== 'There go the Smith's, they're on their way to their Gramma's.
    Your--You're               ====  'Your butt looks big because you're eating too much fudge'

If you notice a grammatical error in my blog, tweet or fb  PLEASE  tell me....I would be mortified if I didn't fix it.

I am not writing this to be critical.  I feel genuine pain when I read something grammatically incorrect.   Guess it 's   cuz my Mom was an English teacher.....  we would be fined a nickel  if we said 'ain't'.... 
anyway...guess it 's my little OCD moment  wish it would transfer to a cleaning fetish instead!

Cheaper by the Dozen

Well, I am short 4 so that's why it is so expensive!

I remember this movie (the old version-starring Clifton Webb)
I loved his discipline and control over his family.  The whistling to get them to line up.
 And of course, they had household help.

Almost like the Duggars but without the weird clothes and 'J' names.

And there is my favorite TV show from my childhood
   'Eight is Enough'  --- I guess I followed that prediction ;)   

Even the Brady Bunch with only 6 kids had a housekeeper
.  That's how to make a household run smoothly.

Yours, Mine and Ours was a good movie, too.   but the newer version starred my favorite guy
Dennis Quaid.
any movie with Dennis is sure to be great!

Any hoo this is my family
or is this my family?

but I must say, having a big family is great!  If a friend is having a party and needs more guests, one quick call to me and shazam!!  party is huge.  And there is no need to set up playdates for the kids, either.

I miss my brother

I've seen him so few times in my 48 years but I consider us to be close. 
I wrote to him often.

It took awhile but then he was home again.
We were optimistic and thrilled. 

but........... old habits die hard.

If at first you don't succeed =try, try again.
One thing about my family is we are NOT quitters.

So once he gets settled I'll have to send him some posters to decorate his new digs.

Fairy Tales and Children's Movies

The Child Cutter
Just about enough to scare you for a few nights after watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
and who can forget this
next one with the wonderful step mom and weak spineless dad
so glad my parents are still married and we didn't get an evil stepmother
and serious issues with this Evil Queen  relying on a mirror to tell her she is the fairest of them all.
wait for a guy with beer goggles on for that then you won't have to look for the pretty one shacking up with those 7 midgets.
so this is me, actually today...exhausted by a day of cleaning.
had to tell my prince I couldn't go to the bar with him tonight
so he probably is talking to
these ugly snots and their mother 
It's all good in fairy tale 'hood.
