Battle Royale

The Madster and I found these Medieval Styrofoam gems at Target for a buck, chaos has ensued ever since.

You can clearly see from the photo that our weaponry has required some repair in order to continue our duels. Duct tape works best.

My fighting style tends to be more reserved and civilized. While Maddie chooses to go balls out running at me full speed like Mel Gibson in Braveheart (Mel Gibson in any movie actually).

Well, its that time of year again, Lent.

For those of you who have visited before, I usually give up swearing for Lent. The thought behind this is it supposedly takes 21 days to break a bad habit. I figure 40 days of Lent is time to break the habit and then some. As this is my third year giving up swearing, the logic is obviously not fool proof.

Every time I swear, I have to skip a meal so a good portion of those 40 days is spent surly in near starving conditions.

Maddie's class was asked what each of them would be giving up for Lent, here are their responses:
If you click on it, you'll notice that my daughter gave up refrigerator magnets! Honestly. Thank you for your sacrifice Jesus, I'm giving up fridge magnets. You've got to be shitting me....there went breakfast.

Just dropping by...

I have been absent from my blog. I am so busy with my busy kindergartener. Admittidly, work messed with my computer and I no longer have access to log into my blogspot account from my work computer, which is where I did most of my blogging. I have been keeping up with you all though, because thankfully I can still view your blogs (except Karen, your blog shuts my system down completly, so I catch up with you when I'm not working). You all make my day go so much faster.

The holidays flew by, in fact, I'm still reeling from the fact that its no longer July, for some reason that is when time seemed to speed up.

I've been spending alot of time with my sister and her family. For those who have read previous posts, I had a serious falling out with my sister when my mom died. I decided that while I am deeply hurt by her actions, having her in mine and my Maddie's life is more important than focusing on something I cant change.

I simply cant believe my wonderful mom has been gone for three years. Fuck you Cancer.

My sister talked me into going with her to get my hair done...which I generally dont do anymore (long story, another post maybe). Since it was the day before the anniversary of my moms passing, it was easy to convince me to cut off 12 inches and donate it, once it was gone and layered, why not dye it? So thats what I did, it was very freeing and I feel like a new person!

My strong willed baby girl is still tearing up the Catholic school system and I think is trying to go for some sort of red light record. As much as I threatened, Santa was good to her anyway. I just couldnt help myself...

While she was home on Christmas break her beloved goldfish "goldie" died. Preceeded in his death were "swimmie" and "rocky". She took Goldies death pretty hard since she personally won him at the fair (I thought it was amazing he lasted as long as he did). I had to pinky swear to get her new fish. Came home from the pet store with 4 new fish and a puppy. I clearly have issues.

Meet Weasley. Maddie just calls him Weez. Mini hates him.
