HELP! I Need A Girls Night Out!

My children are trying to hurt me. I believe they are trying to crush me from the inside. They're breaking my heart!!!!
**** Insert Elvis Costello's "Peace, Love & Understanding" ****
I don't know how homeschooling mother's do it all year!?! (Is there some club full of libations for homeschooling moms? Something like Costco only with a full bar?)
Tonight I feel that if I have to spend the rest of the summer with these little darlings I think I'm going to pull all of my expensive highlighted hair out of my head!!!

Whew...

Now, let's go in a different direction to put my heart, and spirit, in a better place.

It's Friday Night so let's have a blog party!!!! (Pour the wine. Turn on my Playlist...NOW.)

First let's play a game. "Six Things You Need To Know". This game is being generously thrown in my direction by a personal favorite Tiffany from The R Family Diaries.

Six Quirky Things About Me:

1. While I type at the keypad, if music is playing, I pretend that I'm playing a piano, and singing as loud as my family will allow.
2. I have imaginary interviews with Oprah and Ellen.
3. When I wear a bathing suit I think everyone is staring at my huge thighs and my cellulite.
4. I need to have a window open somewhere in the house. (Kind of like a dog in a car. Air! I need AIR!)
5. I read a lot into everything people say to me. It's not healthy I tell ya'!
6. The relationships I make through my blog truly mean a lot to me. (And no one outside of the blog world will ever understand that.)

Now, "quirky" is subjective. What I think is "normal" just about everyone I know finds "funny" or "quirky". But I have to say... I'd rather be Quirky, with a capital "Q" than anything else.
At this point I should tag people. So let's refer back to #6 and go with that. You know who you are! I expect you to share some quirks with me!

Let's continue this party with gifts!

I received a special gift from Jenn who writes The Peacock's Nesting Place.
I appreciate this so much. I'm truly honored. I'm wearing the biggest smile.

Now, I have every intention of doing this. And I will. But tonight, the music must continue!

Time for a Dance Party!!!!!

Ting Tings "That's Not My Name"

The Kooks "She Moves In Her Own Way"


That should get this party started. Now, I just need to get the girls in bed, and some of 'mommies juicebox', and I'll be good to go.
This just might need to last all weekend. Would you like to add to the songlist?
Or perhaps a good ol' fashioned mommy rant?

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
