Soooo Here We Are

Stop, I want to think about this question before we go any farther.Think of the most disgusting female that you have ever met. EVER. You know the one. I had one person pop right into my mind. And I bet you did too.
On with the story...................
As I was poking around the the web the other day, I came across this article on Breast Milk ice cream. Hmmmmmm, it really didn't bother me much but then I started to think about the most disgusting female I could think of and then I thought about eating her ice cream. I gagged!
Now not to let the men get out of this..........Think of the most disgusting male you have ever come across, perhaps a booger picking, ass crack picking man. And now go here. Yes, it can get worse!
What's wrong with me,

More Fun Stuff

What are you doing with your tax return? We are lucky and are getting a good chunk back because Anna is in college. So half will be going back to pay for college and the other half to our bills.
All of this got me thinking, we did what we weren't supposed to and paid extra every week so that we would get money back. Which in turn goes for more bills or saving for upcoming bills. And I have read on other sites that so many are paying off bills with their tax returns. I love it. The thing is with all the extra taxes that we are paying, our refunds are going to get smaller. And I really don't mind helping out the government and paying down the deficit. The thing that bothers me is, we as a people are trying(for the most part) to scrimp and save to pay down our debt. Will the extra money that we pay in be used wisely? We will work harder to keep ahead but will all of our hard work be for nil.
Anyways, $2500 will go to fund these funds. I haven't updated the list since last year but it is pretty much the same. Ahh the joys of being a grown up.

I found the most inspiring site. Since it is getting a bit warmer around these parts, 40 degrees is a heat wave, I've been looking at a few things that I could plant around our humble yard. And then I found it... Urban Homestead. You just have to go there and see what they have done. I'm so impressed.
So if I dig up the front yard, do you think Den will notice?

Not Much

There isn't much going on in my world and that is a huge gift! Usually if it is busy here, it isn't a good thing.That means a problem.
I'm quite surprised how quiet life is around here without Anna. She is pretty homesick but Spring break will be here soon and we will get her then. No going away for her! Yeah like I would give her money to run off to a sex driven party get some R&R.
So since I'm living the good life, I've been catching up on some reading. I've been going to The Happy Housewife. I like her style of writing.
And that's it for now,

Report Me

 This is an adorable picture of my best friend Donna and DJ. I love her so much that I would give her a tit or a testicle if she ever needed one. DJ not so much, he can have the flab off my ass.
This is Donna's dog Ozzie. We dog sat for them last week. Jessie and Ozzie did pretty well. They both are the only dogs in each house so I figured all Hell would break loose when they had to live together. They were fine but every afternoon, they would fight. And then I figured it out, DJ was home. After listening to what he was doing, I got it. He would give all the attention to one dog until the other one couldn't handle it anymore and then a fight would ensue. His new name is Micheal Vick.
Thanks for stopping to see me,

Happy Valentine's Day

 Happy Valentine's day. The bear is a bit too mushy for me.

But then I thought the donor heart might be a bit too much and would turn you off. So I decided against it.

I think the glowing heart is a little bit better and suits my style more.

And I forgot to tell you at Christmas the family got together and had a family photo taken. I'm so proud of us.
Happy Valentine's day,

Piecemeal Pocketbook

Is it just me or does it seem like Send Earnings and Inbox Dollars are sending out fewer and fewer paid emails? I find this to be very upsetting because I save the money that I earn for Christmas.
I did pop over to Inbox Dollars and they have done a major overhaul of the site. It looks great. I'm just hoping that once they get everything changed over, I'll get more paid emails. I've earned $98.31 from both of them so far. Not a ton of cash but still I'm not going to complain either.
And I've got enough points for a $25 gift card and almost enough for a second $25 card from My Points. Not too bad for only the end of January.
And last but not least, I've earned $110 in codes from Swagbucks in 22 months.
So are there any sites that I have missed that I could make a few bucks from?

A Curse

When I was a kid, I adored my grandmother. She was my entire world. She loved me but she had an odd way of showing it. Her love usually involved a curse on me. I spent my entire childhood turning her stomach and making her talk to the ceiling. She was very prim and proper, think of Jackie O and her style. I, on the other hand, wanted to live more like Oscar the grouch. She often had to pick dead bugs out of my hair and scrub dirt out of my clothes. I rode ATVs and only hung out with guys. All I wanted to be was a boy when I was little. I did try to pee standing a few times but it really didn't work out. I can say now that I'm older, I have come a long way. I bathe every day and I'm good housekeeper. Who knew? I also wear mascara once in a while, that is huge if you knew me from when I was young. I can also ride ATVs, spit and street fight with the best of them.
Needless to say, I grew up. I also did not escape the curse. Anna often said while she lived here that it was like living with three guys. She loves to primp and be girly, I tired not to gag until I got out of the room. Ahhh but DJ is a God awful slob. He smells like dirt and farts half the time and he would never bathe if I didn't remind him loudly.
We were driving down the road the other day and I just happened to look back at him. This is going to sound completely wrong but his crotch caught my eye. Wrong but true. I looked down and he had split the front of his jeans and was still wearing them. Who does that?
So I look at him with horror and in my best parenting voice I say, "Jesus Christ boy, is that your right nut?"
He then had the nerve to call me a pervert!
If I hadn't taken that pair of jeans out of rotation, he would still be wearing them. I'm off to shop for some clothes for him.
The first thing that popped into my mind was my Grandmother. I still miss her.

A Complaint!

So the lovely idiots of IL decided that it would be a great idea to raise our taxes from 3% to 5%. They say that the increase is only for four years. And the tollways were supposed to be free by now! It won't happen. We also got hit for another $600 a year on taxes for our house. And just to bring a bit more joy into our lives the cost of 1000 gallons of water/sewage in Antioch went up to $6.43. The last time that I checked it was $5.13 for 1000 gallons. My guess is we will get hit for another $1600 a year between all of it.
All of this makes me wonder, how many people will this push on to welfare(& won't the state have to pay for it)? Even if you have a job, there comes a point where you don't have enough to pay your bills even with extreme budget cuts.  I'm going to readjust the bills again.
It is so bad here that I heard a New Jersey ad on the radio encouraging IL business to move there. And WI is also encouraging businesses to move to the land of cheese. 
Which brings me to the deficit? It's pretty safe to say that we all agree on the fact that something needs to be done. There was quite a big discussion on how it should be handled/paid off, and damned if I can remember the site to link to. But I think that I have a way. It would have to do with everyone's federal withholding. What if no one could adjust it down(Exceptions would be made for job loss/death/poverty) and the government collected that money from everyone. And when tax season rolled around, you could get it back then or have it turned into a bond(or something like that) and you get more than the going rate for letting the government use it(the longer you let the government keep i,t the more you get paid in interest). This would also teach people to save more. You could set it up like a CD ladder.
I know that people at first would hate not being able to adjust their with holdings down to $0 but I think that something has to be done. And in the end, you really could make a profit off of helping the government out. You could call it Pay US Forward or something.
Just a dreamer,

An Anna Update

I just want to let everyone know the list that we all came up with for Anna's dorm room was a success. She didn't need anything, at all. So if you have a child or know someone that is sending their kiddo away to school, print the list for them. I would also suggest to them/you to start gathering everything at least a year in advance. If you have enough time, nothing on the list should cost that much.
Anna also moved out of her old dorm room. Thank God! She likes her new roommate and they get along. But her new roomy did invite a few people over and some how Anna's Ipod was stolen. Anna thought she locked it up but they went through all of her stuff. So yeah, I have the odd feeling that I will be calling the school to have her moved. They made it a week together. I know you can blame Anna for not locking it up but I still feel bad for her. I told her to sew her computer to her thigh.
Anna also has a boyfriend. And Den actually likes him. We met him and he is very respectful. He walks Anna to and from class at night. So sweet. He also has a wicked sense of humor. Anna said that he would fit in well with us.
 This is him "posing" with a 4 foot python.
Mr. Python did not like this and bit his nose. I laughed VERY hard at him. His mother said he got exactly what he deserved.
My crazy life,
PS- And a big Happy 19th Birthday to my little Anna. I love you!
