Missed you guys!!!

I have been MIA for like, forever and I have missed you guys! This has been a very long year already and it is only March!!!

My WB has had it rough this year, and we have requested that they just put a zipper in his head. 125 surgeries and counting. I hope this last one takes. I really hate to see him in pain (if you do the migraine thing, think of that 24/7), so we just might have to take him out to the north 40.

Let's see...what else...Oh!! I had my grand babies for a week during AZ Spring Break! It was great and VERY exhausting! How can something so cute be so much work? I had allergies something fierce due to our 70-80 degree weather. Take that you northerners!!!

OK, now McFly...that girl...! They had a lesson at Young Women's about hygiene and not wearing too much make-up and they taught them how to put it on so they didn't look like sluts. Well McFly is only 12 and me being the mean mother that I am, I don't let her wear make-up, just lip gloss. She came home and told me all about it and I walked in the kitchen and got a snack, and she proceeded to rob me blind. Yes ladies, she stole my MAC make-up and brushes!!! Now you all know how I feel about my MAC make-up...it costs more than my house! And yes I hoard it!

The next day I'm looking for my blush and it is not to be found! I asked her about it and of course she denied it...several times. Homer finally (after 2 days) told her no questions asked and no consequences just bring it back. I went in and talked to her and she told me (accidentally) where her hiding place was and got me my stuff.

Next day, after she went to school I looked in her hiding place and what did I find? Not only our extra cell phone that she is not allowed to use without permission, but she had been texting on it. AND....there was a red lace negligee!!! I almost thew up!!! I had no idea where it came from and all kinds of things were going through my mind. Then Homer came home and I went through my "nightie" drawer and found the panties for the red lace item and was thrilled that it was mine. Yes I have so many of them that I can't keep track. But that is also the drawer I hide drugs in!!! Not bad drugs, good drugs!!!

Well, we have installed bio fingerprint locks and keypads on our bedroom door and my sewing room which is another favorite invasion place of hers. Lucky me. Adoption anyone? I think I will go make an apron...

Yikes! I can't believe how many parents of the drug addict kids I work with don't lock up their meds.

Homer and Queen said...

I lock them up all right!! We have 2 safes for them. These were from years ago I had forgotten about...

April said...

Oh my gosh! Is this what my sister is in for? (She adopted THREE of them.) You need to come visit so we can eat and talk and eat some more!

Barbaloot said...

Wow-good luck! I can't even begin to comprehend how much craziness you're experiencing!

And 125 surgeries?!

Amy Joy said...

Just love her that's ALL you have to do;) AND don't you dare die and laugh at me! SO glad you woke up in the middle of the night. Looks like I can relax.
Oh my hell, Cari! the make- up is one thing but the red lace negligee. At least I used your make-up in your own bathroom and left the mess for you to clean. New meds in the yogurt?

Deanna said...

Note to self: get rid of the red nighty... buy a safe to lock drugs in....put MAC makeup under lock and key...anything else I need to know about raising a girl. Why didn't you warn me BEFORE I had her!

Jen said...

I dont even know what to say right now...

Marilyn said...

Ahhhh yes... And of course you know don't you that life with daughters only gets better.
Two months ago my TWENTYSIX year old daughter jacked my eleven year olds emergency cell phone and ran the bill up 250.00.
It gives me the heebes just thinking about the years between twelve and now!

Big hug is about all I can say. I have missed you. Glad you are hanging in there. Good job on the secutrity measures. One of these days we need to run away together and visit april and shelle and t.

Sandra said...

It's good to hear from you again! Sounds like you have your hands full with the girl. Have fun and keep us informed. : )

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Poor WCB!? :( I can't even imagine!

I'm just thinking we need to see proof of this red lingerie or your drawer!! Hehehe.

I don't know how you do it though, it would be so hard to have to remember to lock up all of those things.

Missy said...

Oh, I want an apron!
Send her here to me! We are just going to install a stripper pole and give up!
I am so glad you are back!

Just Jules said...

I love missy that comment sent me into giggles! if you can't beat them train them to strip!

Nezzy said...

Bless your heart, you sure have a battle on your hands! My prayers are with you girl!

God bless and have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

Garden of Egan said...

OK, I was "ordered" to come here by April and Tonya and Shelle. They told me I would totally heart you,
Uhm, I do.
I happened to be lucky enough to be in St. G yesterday and we met for lunch. They are hilarious by the way.
Anyway, I've meandered around your blog and love the way you write, your honesty, humor and way of poking fun at what needs to be poked at.

Dawn said...

OK I poked around your blog and I I laughed pretty hard...almost peed my pants a few times...(yea, I know at this age it doesn't take much!) Oh, and I'll take you up on that apron!!

T said...

man, oh man... glad it was your negligee though, that's a HUGE relief!

Garden of Egan said...

Who are your friends in St. Anthony...I probably know them!

Ya, snow...ugh.

I'm wishing I were back in St. G having lunch with April, T and Shelle.

Nezzy said...
