Shout Outs

Yesterday the D-I-V-O-R-C-E of The First Born and Baby Mama was finalized. Believe it or not, I'm kinda sad. Not about the marriage (sorry) they were so young it was just a matter of time, but I am sad because I really love her. She is sweet and a really good mom. I'm glad she is still in our lives and that she is raising my grand kids.

The shout out is to her and all single moms that are working, going to school, or whatever and trying to raise their children. I admire you. I consider myself lucky, just to be a stay at home mom, and I am married to a guy who is more nurturing than I am. I wish my son wouldn't have been on drugs most of their marriage so they could have made a go of it.

My next shout out is to the unbelievable lady down the street who just so happens to be married to The Guy On The Corner.

First of all, WB has been in the hospital again. He is home now. It was a routine shunt-fail-get-a-new-one neurosurgery. We like to look at it as a 3000 mile oil change. No, it is not normal, he just is....oh whatever he is, it's not suppose to happen but it does to him. Anyway...we are not private people I blog for hell's sake, but we don't like everyone to know when he is in the hospital because we don't like to have people fuss over us and you know how those Mormons are...they fuss over EVERYTHING and they is why we are all whacked and half of us are on Prozac.

But Em, she is one of those really mom's that actually like her kids. They are ALL great kids and I do hate her for that but every year at Christmas she makes these awesome orange rolls for some of the more needy people in the neighborhood. Maybe she just wanted to give them to us only one year, but I was not about to let that happen! Around August I start the lowering of the bar and begging. Seriously, they are that good! And she brings them HOT, straight out of the oven.

This year, I took the empty pan back to them and said "please sir, can I have some more?" They laughed at me and I wasn't even kidding. Really. I wasn't. When she makes them she doesn't make any for her family til new years and I thought if she made a batch for her family she could make another one for mine. This is logical in my little pea brain.

Well...I didn't get any!!! Can you believe that? After all that begging and lowering of standards?
Thank goodness for the always sick WB!!! Are you ready for this? Last night, hot out of the oven. the coveted Orange Rolls!!!! I was going to take a photo and post it, but you have all seen empty pans before, so I didn't think you would care. Dang they were soooooo good!

Can you believe her snotty little son who brought them, actually asked if he could have one? Tried to tell me that his family never did get any! Like THAT mattered to me. Did he think that it would pull on my non-existent heart strings? Yes, I did give him one. The smallest one. And don't think it will not cost him dearly! I will milk that one until next Christmas!

I told Homer that I wished that I had a "thing" that I could make or bake for them, and you know what he said to me? "Well, you just haven't found it yet." Are you kidding me? I have been slaving over him for almost 28 years and he couldn't come up with something off the top of his head? My jaw dropped! I will never cook or bake for him again as long as I live!!!!!

Well...a shout out the Em and all of you fuss budgets out there that make needy people feel loved. (maybe she was just trying to shut me up). I gotta tell ya, blogging is great. You can say things about people who never read said blog and they will never know!!!

Chief said...

Sandra said...

If I knew what orange rolls are I'd make them for you. Your DIL will do fine with support from your family. That doesn't happen often. I was one of those single young mums.

Amy Joy said...

yes creepy :)

Melinda said...

I make orange rolls and I think they taste just like a donut! YUM! I love you so much, you're so my kind of lady!

wesley's mom (sue) said...

This made me laugh out loud.

Your husband's comment sounds like just the kind of honest thing my husband would say. What in the world is wrong with men anyway?

April said...

Way to make the neighborhood kids beg! Teach those boys when they are young whose boss! hehehe!

Jason and Claire said...

I know how you feel with your DIL...I just lost my 4TH SIL. Yes, I said 4th and he's only 28! I liked her the best though;(

Those orange rolls sounded delish.

Sorry you've had more time in the hospital. You're one tough cookie. I might be calling you the next time I have a break down and ask you how to pick myself up again;) Your family is lucky to have you.

Carree Sue said...

You crack me up!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

I'm glad his "normal" not so "normal" hospital visit went okay.

AND that you got the ORANGE Rolls!

I think your hubs should do some kind of HOUSE duty... maybe even cook for you with that kind of neglect! :)

I also give fist bumps to the single moms... I don't know if I could do it.

Deanna said...

Hopefully the orange rolls helped ease some of the pain of having to endure the hospital again. so sorry the hospital is sooooo not fun. glad to hear he's doing better!

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Sorry about the sad news and the hospital. Glad things are better now. Sad I missed seeing the east west game. Dang employment demands. Glad you got some orange rolls out of it.

Debbie said...

I am sorry to hear about the divorce. It is hard to not have someone in your life that you have grown to care about. Glad she is such a good mom.
