Sunday, depressing Sunday.....

Today is a day that I wish I could just delete. I went to work today, yeah you heard me right. I went to work on a Sunday. Suprisinlgy I actually accomplished alot in the two hours that I was there. I got the opportunity to work without the hassle of being interrupted by clients. It was fantastic!!!! We successfully sold the rather large sofa that was taking up all of the space in our T.V. room and it looks great now. All we need is something new and smaller to occupy the room. So begins our search of a new piece of furniture. Great!! I have a rather glum and defeated feeling today. I think that I am dreading going to work tomorrow. My boss is coming back to work from maternity leave and I could not be more depressed about it. I can even begin to imagine how horrible my day is going to be. It makes me sick even thinking about it. So basically I have to things stacked against me is Monday and my boss will be back in the office. Wow its going to be great. I think I am going to call in sick. Sniff, Sniff :) Anyhoo, time to figure out whats for dinner. Have a good night folks.

A tale of two Tornadoes........

So far today has not been too bad of a day. The one thing that I could do without today is the nonstop cleaning up after my two children. Wherever they go a trail of debris is left behind them. I have attempted on more than one occation to in fact clean up the path of devistation that has been left behind. But I have decided that it is pointless to do so until they pass out at the end of the day. I have been defeated. The lower level of my home looks as if a category 5 tore through it and left utter devistation in its path. As I was attempting the first round of clean up this morning I had to step over the contents that were emptied out of Madelines toy box So I stepped over a Diego Rescue Center, tripped on Noahs Ark and was stabbed in the foot by the gun from a Halo action figure. As I was yelling out obsenities my one year old was looking at me as if I were crazy and yelled mommy did that!!! not realizing that it was her messiness that caused this accident in the first place. So other than that it has not been too bad of a day. It has been boring but not bad. I have however had the most odd feeling today. I have been bored, tired and have absolutely no motivation to do anything even remoltely productive. I think that I need a hobby or something and I need to get out of my house. I was going to go to LA Fitness and get myself a membership but how am I going to have enough motivation to go everyday if I cant even get off my butt long enough to get the damn membership? That is a question that I have absolutely no answer to. But I know that I will just keep bitching to myself about having to buy bigger pants! Oh well rant over :)

T.G.I.F. and the magically disappearing #2's..........

Well yesterday had to have been one of the crappiest days ever. I just about managed to screw everything up that I possibly could. It was work, a friendship and irritating Nicholas all in the span of a few hours. I think I might have even committed a small misdomenor but not 100% on that. Yeah I was pretty busy yesterday:) Then to top it all off today when I drag in to work after having a monkey in my bed all night, meaning Madeline :) I am really tired and not ready to deal with the gynormous amount of emails from my boss. And not nice emails either. I seriously think that she just likes screwing with me. I know that it sounds very juvenile of me but I have never in my life been picked on by anyone, until this woman and I just dont know how to process that. I don't normally let people intimidate me but for some reason I just can't seem to win with her. No matter what happens I am wrong even when Im not. So whatever!!! I call B.S. on this one. The one positive thing that I can say right now is that it is Friday and I could not be happier. I have absolutely nothing exciting planned as always but I don't have to work and that is good enough for me. I am however very jealous that Nicholas is off today. Him and Jeff are hard at work playing golf today while I am butthole deep in B.S. at work. Does that sound fair? I think not my friends. But oh well what can you do. On a side note, anyone need a cat? We adopted a rather handsome Bengal cat named Leo from the Humane Society and he is handsome and super affectionate. Perfect in every way except for one minor detail..........He feels the need to crap on my rug!!!!!! And he does not do this in secret. He does not require privacy like us humans. He finds it necessary to do it right in front of you and looks right at you while doing it. And before you realize what he is up to... there it is. A big steamy pile that he has produced and left for his humans to dispose of. Now don't get me wrong here, I love my cat but I do not love picking up his crap! I do not love it at all. Neither does Nicholas. He has offered to "take him out" for me, however I politely refused the offer. Now I was never good at math, not my strong subject but we have had Leo for exactly two months now and he does not do number "2" in his litter box at all. BUT......I am not finding it anywhere else so that leads me to beleive that it is disappearing, hence the title of my post today. So let me lay out some calulations for you here. Leo = our home 2 months = 61 days = 61 piles - the one he left this morning on our rug in front of Nicholas = 60 piles of crap somewhere. I know he is not super cat and cannot make a pile disappear so where is this going I wonder?? I have went on a poop hunt everyday for the past two months and come up empty handed everytime. I am getting a little discouraged now and I just know that when I unearth the location of where he is making his deposits it is going to be a beast and the size of Texas! I just dont know what I am missing here. So if anyone wants a cat he is perfect :) I exit now on that note. I hope you enjoyed the tale of the disappearing # 2's. Happy Friday everyone!!!!

More tomorrow when I can (possibly) string together a cohesive thought.

So someone has to bring it up.....

I went to bed lastnight a little upset and woke up this morning a little more freaked out. I am nervous about the shitstorm that is sure to follow Obama being elected as President of this great nation. I am sure that I will catch hell in some way regarding this post but hey its America right? That wonderful thing called freedom of speech :)I am not sure what to make of the outcome of this election. I knew it was coming but was not exactly prepared for it. I would like to think that I am a somewhat intelligent individual but I cant help but think that I am surrounded by a nation of uneducated people and I dont want to think that. Now dont get me wrong here Its not that I think that Mccain is a saint because lets face it I nor anyone for that matter would be naive to think that but what Obama has to bring to the table I want none of. The vast majority of people that voted for Obama yesterday have absolutely no clue what he stands for politically and morally. They voted for him primarily because of his race and that is sad. As a nation you would have thought that the racial issues that plagued our great country for so many years would have been a thing of the past but that is just not true. We are witnessing a political phenomenon with Obama of rare magnitude. His speeches have inspired millions apparently and yet most of his followers have no idea of what he stands for except promises of 'Change' or that he says he will be a 'Uniter'. I am by no means a racist here. One of my best friends is an almost seven foot black man and has to be about the coolest person that I know so by no means do I want this to come off as myself being a racist. Lets talk about what Obama has planned for us...

He voted for partial birth abortion.
He voted no on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions.
Supports granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants.
Supports extending welfare to illegal immigrants.
Voted yes on comprehensive immigration reform..
He voted No on repealing the alternative Minimum Tax which now hits middle income brackets. Tax Increase!!!!!!!!
Has repeatedly said the surge in Iraq has not succeeded...which is not true.
He is ranked as the most liberal Senator in the Senate today.
Wants to make the minimum wage a 'living wage'.

These are just a few things that we have to look forward to in the next four years and four years is a long time. I know that George W. did a real number on us the past eight years do we really need more crap coming our way? Ok, rant over :)


Hello and welcome to my blog. This is a blog dedicated to my daily thoughts, issues, and experiences. I am new to this blogging world so wether it will be entertaining or not, well who knows I will let you be the judge of that. I just really enjoy writing and sometimes it is just satisfying at the end of the day to vent or let out some info about the adventures or obstacles that you have conquered that day. So anyhoo here it goes. My name is Niki and I am a proud mom of two of the most amazing and entertaining children. I am an outspoken, spoiled, sarcastic, procrastinating woman who stresses out way too easily who more often than not puts my foot in my mouth. I am sure going forward if you continue to read my blog you will learn that but hopefully it will be entertaining at least. Well that is me in a nutshell. Thanks for reading :)
