Ramblings of a Mad Piggie

Thursday, August 30, 2007


Let's see...everyone look at their stopwatches please...we made it a whole 11 days without a breakdown from me about the boy and school. We have a winner, ladies and gentlemen.
11 days into the new school year and the boy has brought home his first F. Oh, he didn't actually bring it home, I found it.
It all started with me wanting a nice little snack...a bowl of Special K Chocolate Delight *my new favorite ceral*...I got up put some in a bowl, grabbed a spoon and opened the fridge up for the milk......you guessed it, no milk. The boy had drank the last bit about 1/2 earlier.
So I told him to go get me his school binder and I can go through it to pass my time since I didn't have no cereal to eat.
Lo and behold, the boy seemed nervous for some reason. Why you ask? Because he hasn't been doing his homework. Shock...disbelief...?? I think not.
I sent him to take a shower and then I went thru his backpack that he hid behind his bed. At the bottom of the bag, all crinkled up was his US History progress report that I was supposed to have signed YESTERDAY.
HOmework: F
Test SCore: C
to average out to a big o F.
And so my nightmare begins people.
Wish us luck.

And to think, all this happened because there wasn't any milk left.

Oh yeah, it was my anniversary on Friday. Did I not write anything about it because I was on some fantastic trip planned out entirely by my loving and adorable husband? did I not write about it because in the commotion of such a marvelous day I was to busy to write about it?
Fuck no!
I didn't write about it cause we didn't do a fucking thing so why write?
I came home early that day because it was my anniversary, my 16th mind you. Yes, hard to believe such a young at heart 36 year old can say that she's been married for 16 out of the 36 years she's been on this earth. Anyways, came home early cause we were going to the movies to go see the new Jason Stratham *hunka hunka hunka* flick, War. Hey its Jet Li but who cares, it has Mr. Transporter himself in it. Don't know what happened, but we didn't go. What did we do? We went to Cho's Kitchen, a chineese restaruant with the girl, ate, left to go home and went to bed.
Ugh...can you get more depressing?
I guess after 16 yrs of marriage, its a dinner, some TV , a slap and a tickle and good night!
I'm going to remember this next year.

Not a great pic, but really the last one we took. This is in our hotel lobby in Hawaii after a day of snorkling.

And I haven't donet the camping post. I can't upload the pics and its frustrating me...sooo off to the subject of school we go.

School Time:

The boy is a sophmore this year and the girl is 8th grade. Two kids that know the rules and have been around the block in their schools. I'm hoping that it helps and it helps out a lot.
So far its been 1 week and 1 day. Not bad.
The boy has actually been gettting up without me having to throw a bowl full of water at him and the girl as usual sets her own alarm and is up before me sometimes. Amazing.
The only thing so far and i say this with a grain of salt...so far....cause you know there's gonna be drama....is that their school food sucks and they're not eating.
I remember when I was in school, I got in line, got me a pizza and a soda or went in the hot lunch line and grabbed me a plate with whatever happened to have mashed potatoes and gravy (*cause I LOVED me those tatoes and gravy), sat down and actually ate lunch and had time to bullshit.
Not so says my kids. The lines are soo long and even if they did get up to the front they either sold out of most things or didn't have time to eat it. What's up with that??
The boy doesn't even bother to get in line anymore and the girl has stopped also because her new principal took out all the "good" ie: unhealthy stuff. Granted I don't want my kid to snark down a bag of cheetos and pepsi for lunch, but something's better than nothing. All they have is gatorade, propel and baked chips. That's it for the snack bar.
Needless to say, I went to the store and bought the cheetos, granola bars, pop tarts, popcorn, fruit roll ups and told them to stuff them in their backpack and bring 'em out for lunchtime.
That's the biggest problem. Who knows though by the end of the day, drama could unfold and my perfect little school world will come tumbling down.
Keeping my fingers crossed.

A pic of the boy on first day of school, a tradition that we've done since I went to school. The first year that they didn't take one together, the girl had to be in school at 6:45 am to help decorate the school for the students.

the girls pic is on her phone and I will edit in later.

which to some said would be their last....NOT, we got to our campground and headed straight to the back of the sites. We weren't near the water, but that was ok. Less people, so that we can make noise. Turns out tho, way in the back, that there were no flushing toilets (only the dreaded hole ones), they were uphill, and quite a walk for us fat people. Still...not a problem for me. The fire ring was actually on a slant and we had to be real careful when we put the dogs on or they rolled off. And yes, my family ate hot dogs, chicken, ribs, & tri tip off a grill who god only knows what or who did to it out there in the woods! Ha! I knew they would.

Here's a pic to get me started on my camping trip adventure.
More to come.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to my Dad. He would've been 71 yrs old today.
The family went to the cemetary tonight to light his Virgen de Guadalupe candle this year and sang Happy Birthday.
