The wacky weather lady

what is going on with the lady on the “The Whether Channel”? I watched every morning because I need to know what to do with my day but this woman is making it harder every morning to watch. I was a little surprised when they suddenly changed from another set of people to this Abrams and Bettes. I liked the other people that did the mornings. They were calm and soothing and something easy to wake-up. This Abrams woman is annoying.


Not in a bad way but in a way that makes you just shake your head. This morning while I was washing dishes they were talking bout black ice on the road. All I heard her ask Mike Bettes is “Since vodka has a lower freezing level than water, what do you think of my idea of spraying the roads with that instead?” (I may have remembered that wrong but that’s what sticks in my head) I was so in shock that i started to rewind it just so I could here it again. They guy out on the road, I this was Jim Cantore, was surprised by it to. He just kind of stammered until he said that beet juice would be better. LOL

I don’t understand how she can get away with saying things like this and no one stops her or cuts to another shot or turns her mic off. I laugh because it throws everyone off when she talks. It’s almost like there’s no filter between her brain and her mouth.

I feel the people that have to work with her, she’s quite a character.

“Doggie Patch”

I have a MAJOR problem with this. Have you seen the commercials for it? I don’t have a problem with the product itself, which is gross because you still have to clean up the mess, but the fact that it’s AKC approved. Just another reason for me not to like the AKC.

2 years ago a “friend” of mine was living here and I was helping her with her mother’s dogs that we saved. It’s a long story and I’ve probably mentioned it before. But anyways, she was a dog breeder when she lived in Oregon and knew all about breeding dogs and what to do and what not to do. She’s the one that told me that unless she had people lined up to buy the dogs that she was going to breed she didn’t breed. These were dogs that were not pets but were kept in kennels for most of the time, not ones that got to sit on the couch with her. These were money machines in my opinion. But back to the AKC thing,she was a member of the AKC and

that didn’t really impress me.

I can see how people that use the “Doggie Patch” think they are doing a great job because now they aren’t wasting puppy pads or having to clean up after their dogs or puppies but when I look at it again it’s such a waste. You still have to empty the container every time your dog goes to the bathroom so that means what? You have to walk from one end of the room to the other, carrying this tray full of puppy pee and where do you pour it out at? The sink, which has dirty dishes in it? The garbage so now when you take the garbage out it has pee in it as well? Or you have it in the bathroom and you either pour it out in the sink where you brush your teeth, down the drain with your pee, or in the bathtub. Gross in so many ways.

Thank you SupperNanny

As I have meantioned before I love watching Supernanny. A lot of the things she says and the way she fixes things make a lot of sense to me and seem so simple. One of my moms told me the other day that she was doing three things with her daughter at the same time, leaving her at the studio, getting herto sleep without mom, and also getting rid of the pacifier. The first two I kinda had a feeling about but the pacifier thing kinda surprised me since she's 3 and all but then again there have been kids on TV who were 5 with a pacifier. She asked for my help since she was going to stop leaving her here for awhile since she has regressed and is not having problems with it. When I asked her which one she was more attached to, her sleeping with her or the pacifier, she said the pacifier. I suggeseted that she do the pacifier first with the thinking being that if she is that attached to the pacifier it will take the longest to get over and be the hardest thing to do, then when it comes time to get mom out of the bed or leave her at school they won't be as hard to do and shouldn't take that long. It's just amazing how she deals with things since she seems to be so book smart and know about the world but can't seem to manage her own child. It makes me wonder if I went back to school would I lose the ability to cope and dal with what Savie does on a daily basis? Would I look like a frazzled woman when I go to the store with her?

Well after the last post I was hoping that there would be nothing more to say about K but that doesn't seem to be the case. I really don't want to keep talking about her but she keeps popping up in my life and then last night it was my dream!!!! But before we get to that lets get a little re-cap.

So she left on the 20th and should have been ale to make it in about 3-4 days. She was loaded down with 5 dogs, 6 cats, a lamb and a bird. Yeah I know that is a lot of animals. She had her little truck and a U-Haul for all of her stuff and could only go about 35 I think she said so she wouldn't be making great time and then have to stop to potty everyone. I thought I would hear from her later on that day just to say that things were going ok, or at least the next morning. I heard nothing until Mon and that was because her friend D called me to see if I had head from her!!! Three days and no one here's anything. The only reason D heard from her is because she needed money!!! I couldn't believe it when she told me that. We spent the rest of the week trying to guess where she was and how the weather was effecting her drive.

She never showed up until New Year's Eve. She called, I think, on Christmas Eve to say that she was stopping for the day at another friends house that was about 5 hours away from D. Again no call to either one of us. Personally I would have found a way to call someone and say "Ok, this is where I am, I'm going to stop for a couple of hours and stretch my legs and the dogs legs, and then should be back on the road by this time. The weather is doing this so it's slow going, blah blah blah." It's a common courtesy that you tell people where you are especially when you are driving thru 4 states!!!!

Anyways I got a call from D on New Years Eve that she finally showed up and then left all the animals in their crates, didn't feed them, etc and then left for the night and never came back. I had a dream, nightmare really, that she showed up here with her animals. That is so scary for me. I can't believe I had that dream, I must of had something really bad to eat/drink last night for that one to happen.

Good bye K

This might be my last post about K for awhile. She finally moved today. I am a little sad that she is gone but on the other hand I'm happy. She is a little hard to take sometimes. I don't mind helping someone out when hey need it but I have other things to do during the day other then talking on the phone. I mean really, who wants to be on the phone for a good 2 hours? She bought herself a headset because she was on the phone so much. LOL.

She has been trying to move for the past two months, trying to miss the storms up north, but was finally able to get the money and everything else situated now. There was a lot of drams (as always) surrounding the whole thing. When we talked about it last month it was to find out what I wanted to do about the money she owed me. Personally I want the money not the camera that she bought (and all the extras along with it), personally I don't think she needed to buy all the stuff she did buy but that's another pot for another day. She said that she was trying to adopt out the dogs and the lamb and cats (remember all of them?) but I don't remember seeing ads or signs out for them anywhere (again a post for another day).
She had called me to tell me that she was leaving the angel trumps for me. Great I'll be by in the next day or so to get them. Then she went on, for 45 minutes, telling me about how hard it was to pack everything and that the freeze the other night changed all her plans, etc all while I am trying to tell her that I am at school and working and I need to get off the phone.

I feel like I should be upset that she is leaving and had such a hard time her and then all the BS that her quote-unquote friend did today while she was trying to leave. It's just a headache talking to her. I'm kinda happy because now she won't be here bothering me, calling me all the time, and wanting me to come over and do stuff. She kept talking up us moving into the house that she was in and there is no way that I would even think about that, not after this happened. I was there today to "help" but still trying to get away. She even asked me if I could follow her to the tunnel (which is only a 30 minute drive) because of some stuff going on with him but I have other things to do.
I hate to point fingers and say "you should have done this and you should have done that" but if she had gotten out of the house more, even just going walking, and tone down the paranoia she might have made some friends. She had no one to call but me and her church. That, in my opinion, is sad. You have one person you can call in a town that you have lived in for 3 yr.

Having a flashback

OMGoodness, do you see how much Ice hasn't changed?

A very personal post

Just to warn you this is a very personal post so if you are not ready to read about sex and love then stop reading now.

I was with my mommy friends today and we somehow got on the topic of "open marriages". Now I am not one to openly talk about my marriage and today was one of those days. They were talking about how "open marriages" were detrimental to the woman and the relationship. I, for one, am here to say that is not always the case. I have an open marriage and by that I mean we talk about everything.

There is not a lot we don't tell each other. I know he is attracted to these other women he sees and vice versa, there's nothing wrong with that. If you are not open and honest with the person you are with then you can't be comfortable with them.

Now some of yo may be thinking, does he openly do it in front of me? Do I find that rude? Not all. I know he loves me (and vice versa) and that these women (men) are just for fun. They are not serious and will never be serious. One of the ladies said "When your fantasy becomes real life, then you have a problem." Personally I see nothing wrong with letting your fantasies come true. If it is in a comfortable, controlled setting.

There is no way that I would have, or will, tell these ladies about my marriage. They are not open enough to take what I have to say seriously.
