Dear Someone

Dear Bully,

Listen, last year you bullied lots of girls. You even beat one up at a bus stop. And I've heard you've had a pretty hard life and some really bad things have happened to you. While I wouldn't wish these things upon you, I damn well will not stand for you bullying my daughter and her friends. Last year I gave Alyssa directions to ignore you and if you wouldn't stop to just let you know that whatever your problem was that she didn't want to be on the receiving end of it and to knock your crap off. You were even brave enough to throw her some dirty looks while I was there. Well after picking up Alyssa and her group of friends from open gym the other night and them telling me that you and your friends were being really mean and calling them bitches and threatening to smash a soda can in their faces...this Mom has had enough. You will hear from me at open gym tonight. I've heard that you keep bullying because everyone is afraid to stand up to you. It better come to an end.

Dear 4th Grade Homework,

Oh My Word, between a lot of homework and Taylor having some difficulties grasping what she is learning...we are quite literally doing homework from the time she gets home until it's time for bed. Besides her snack, dinner and bath time, the rest of her evening is filled up with doing her homework and trying to comprehend it. Less homework please, she shouldn't have to spend her whole evening stressed/working to finish and comprehend it all.

Dear Exercise,

Why are you such a needy being? I shouldn't have to visit you soooo often...really, I shouldn't.

Random Tuesday

~ Went for a nice walk this morning on our trail at the park. There were a ton on bunnies and quail. And one chipmunk. I wanted to gather up all the cute little baby bunnies and baby quail and bring them home with me. Too cute.

~ It's still summer time, and I haven't done this in a while...

I don't know what I am thinking...I love swimming and I've not done it near as much as I should.

~ This is my dog Malibu...


She is looking at me like "It's.Not.Fair...Roxy is on dad's lap, and I should be on yours". Not happening...a 67 pound 8 month old American Bulldog in NOT a lap dog.

~ Hmm, let's see, what is on my agenda today? Nothing! Fantastic, once again. Now I'm off to plant myself in front of the the TV, maybe take a little siesta, maybe read a little, snack a little...maybe a little bit of everything and nothing at all. I'm going to enjoy the rest of this week and next week before I head back to fall semester classes. Lovin' me some ME time!

Manic Monday Foo'

Just another manic Monday...wish it were....today. I know a lot of people don't like their hectic schedules that start on Mondays. Seeing how I'm still currently a stay-at-home mom, I am lovin' Mondays at this point in time. ALL the kids are in school...and I...I'm blarin' the music and getting my one woman party started! I'm living it up. Sent the kids off to the bus with hugs, kisses and well wishes for a good day.


TODAY'S AGENDA:
  • Dance and sing and get jiggy wit' it....Done!
  • Go and buy fall semester text books.
  • (Rather be spending the money on Nickelback tickets)
  • Get jiggy wit' it in the car to the blarin' music.
  • (Aren't you all so lucky that I DON'T know how to post video!)

And that is my agenda...pretty empty...pretty awesome to me!

Here is a short weekend re-cap to cap this off...

Saturday night we went to Shortmama's house for some dinner and game playing. We like to talk shit to each other. And Amanda and I have very loving names for our hubby's. Keep in mind it's loving...cause we lurv them :) Anywho, when game playing gets competitive here is how we address our husbands...

Me to Jason..."What are you doing bitch, quit skipping me!"
Shortmama to Levi...ok really, I can't remember her whole sentence to him, because I was cracking up laughing when she hollered at him and called him a "shit stain". Bwahahahaha....still cracks me up!


HAPPY MANIC MONDAY!

Dear Someone

Dear Blogging,

Nice to be back to this routine...computer, coffee, typing and music (currently playing is Boom by POD). Sharing my life and reading up on others...nice start to the day.

Dear Charlene,

I'm ready for another concert again...Nickelback is coming to town. Lurv me a concert.

Wild Rose


Dear Jayce,

Thank you for the laughter you give out. You really cracked us up while out shopping for clothes. When we picked out Alyssa's school pants and then realized that one of that tags on there showed how it maximizes the butt and gives it a lift, it was just hilarious when you told her that it really does lift up her butt when she tried them on and she came out to let me make sure they were ok. And of course when you decided to tell her that all of the other pants lift her butt up too, ya, funny.

Belly Laughin' Mama


Dear Kids,

Get used to me "embarrassing" you by going to school and taking pictures...you'll appreciate the memories when you are older.

Back With A Bang

I have been gone, gone, gone...but now I'm back! Woohoo! My kids are all back in school so now I have time to be immersed in here again. And I'm back just in time to join this new little meme...





This is hosted by MissC @ Life As I See It...and co-hosted by The Lunatic Cafe, Babies Boobies & A Blog, and Naughty Mommy Reviews & Junk. Here is a description of the meme:

This meme is THE NAUGHTY LIST! I want each of you to write 3 things that you have done that made you feel naughty! It can be from years ago or minutes ago!

DESERT ROSE'S NAUGHTY LIST...

1. I spent a lot of my youth running around nude. At the lake, through the streets, out in the AZ desert. I may have meant to be a nudist...having kids has changed that ;)

2. I used to work as an emergency dispatcher. One time my co-worker and I took a ride in the back of our officer friend's police vehicle for a small joy ride around the downtown buildings in phx. We were hollering out of the windows that the officer was taking us to jail just cause we were making out in the park. Gave the homeless people that were out and about a good laugh.

3. If my hubby is talking about something that I may not particularly care about I flash him so he will possibly lose track of what he is talking about and move on.

Anywho, I'm glad to be back and can't wait to see what I've been missing out on.

Back From MIA...Possibly

I've been missing in action for over a month now, but I'm back, at least for the moment. I've been out enjoying my life outside of the computer/blogosphere. I'll share a few of the things that we've been out enjoying.

My little boy graduated kindergarten. Proud of the wonderful job he did in his first year of school, but not so sure I want him to be out of kindergarten. He ended with mainly Excellent's and some Satisfactory's. This is Jayce on graduation day with his awesome teacher...


So next year he'll hit the big time for 1st grade, Taylor will be in 4th, and Alyssa will be in her very last year of Jr. High, 8th grade. Ugh.

My husbands two oldest kids came out for a week's visit. While they were here we took them to Knott's Berry Farm and the beach in California. We had a wonderful time...minus freezing our asses off at the beach in the morning. My hubby is the only one who enjoyed it regardless of the frigid temp and water. But once the temps rose in the afternoon then we all enjoyed it. Seriously...when Ryan got out of the water in the morning HE WAS PURPLE. Mmm hmm...purple.

Ryan, Siara and I....our LOVELY 2 hour wait for Knott's Berry to open since Miss Siara woke us up at the crack of OMG because she wanted to get going...that and she's an early to rise girl to begin with...which kind of clashes with a "don't you dare wake me" me.


We ran into some hot fellas...


Ryan was just overjoyed that snoopy stopped by for a visit...





And here's my crazy family in the freezing waters of Newport Beach...


Siara, Ryan and I


Wondering if this sea urchin will poison me or something...


My hubby and I catching a wave...




Ooooh that was fun!



We went out on a ranger/quad ride....

Up front is Grandma Sheryl and Jayce, in the back is Alyssa, Siara and Taylor.


And here is my hubby and Ryan...


My hubby and I...


"I vwant to bite you"



And we've done some swimming...but I'll save that for another time. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

Whew...I Think I Need A Nap

I've been gone recently. Not the I've left the house kind of gone. The "my head has done a face plant into my books" kind of gone. This is the last week of class for this semester, and I've been studying away. Today was my last day of math class...I could dance a nekked jig, it makes me that happy. And tomorrow is my last day of psychology class. Looking forward to my break before the fall semester.

I had a fantabulous Mother's Day. Hoping all the rest of you Momma's did too. My kids all gave me cards. And we hung out. My hubby made a wonderful dinner. And then we went to home depot for my pick in a Mother's Day present....new house paint. Got a few things to fix some cracks in our stucco, and then chose a darker color for our house than what we currently have.

The night before Mother's Day, my husband and I got to go and hang out with Shortmama and her hubby for the night. Kid Free. Ya, that was fantabulous too. We first started out at a steakhouse for dinner. Mmm mmm good. Then we ended up at one bar. But that one was a little dead and noisy. Noisy since there was a band playing in a very small enclosed area. Decided it was worth screaming to hear each other talking. So off to another bar we went. We had so much fun, and took some great pictures that we'll remember forevah, and laugh at forevah!

Shorty and I


Shorty striking a pose...


My hubby and I...


I love this pic of my hubby, it's very clear. It's so clear you can completely see how two-toned he is!!!


Shorty and her hubby Levi...Looks like Levi is passed out, but upon closer inspection you will see that he is cracking up!


And this my friends is what happens when I start feeling a little tipsy...


And this my friends is my happy/embarrassed hubby!


We had a wonderful time that night...can't wait to do it again!!!
