Hey girl. I haven’t seen you in forev, except for that night we went to what felt like a baby shower. I hope you guys are doing great. My oldest is back and doing awesome except for the fact she had her wisdom teeth pulled out yesterday. It pretty much sucks, especially when she accidentally pulled out a chunk of her stitches. While we were hanging out watching the TV (no shock there) we decided to watch Weeds. OMG, I don’t know if you’ve ever watched this show but its has totally adult content. I didn’t mind watching it with her so much (18 years old) but then my 11 year old comes in and I let him watch it too. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. It was not a shining mothering moment It just seemed like too much effort to shoo him away and maybe I convinced myself that the show seemed innocent enough. Anyway, he’s supposed to keep his new knowledge to himself. We’ll see how that works out. I better run but I wanted to say hi so send me a message whenever you have the chance. MB

Hi hope you’re doing well this morning and the traffic wasn’t too bad. I’m already at work and trying to figure out what to do first. Since I don’t like to make lists, I have to sort it out in my brain. On another subject, our weekend was good. My oldest daughter came back from her freshman year in college and it’s beyond exciting for us. It’s amazing how nice and familiar it is to be with her. On the other hand, she has so many family members vying for her time and in truth, all she wants to do is sleep. Obviously we need to be more patient. We have to remember that she’ll be here for a while so it’s ok to take a step back and give her the space she needs.

On our one outing, she and I took my middle daughter to get an outfit for her middle school culmination. It was both fun and, gulp, you know…. At some point I had to run out and get a coffee to settle down. The shop was up the hill and I was surprised at how beautiful everything was. She decided on a flowing cream colored dress ending just above knee length, a black cardigan and black shiny flats with glimmering stones on the toe. The outfit is gorgeous. She also has long dark wavy hair that will look beautiful with it.

Switching the subject again, my husband and son and I have been continuing to work diligently on our Battle Star Galactica marathon, binge, or whatever you want to call it. The girls don’t seem interested but I, myself, can’t get enough of it. It has made me wish that I was (along with everything I’m doing now) a fighter pilot. I use to wish I could be a race car driver but that’s out the window now. It’s the love of speed in three dimensional space I guess, not to mention the target practice. This makes me sound more violent than I am, but the process just sounds amazing.

A downside of the show is that everyone is drinking and smoking all the time. It makes it look so cool but I know that it is not. In fact for me, those things make me feel like crap. Maybe that’s also true for being a fighter pilot. I’ll never know. Ironically, my father’s life dream was to be a fighter pilot with the air force. He went for it but they rejected him because of some issue with his eyes. I guess he was meant to do something else (if you believe in fate that is, which I know you do).

On the topic of emotions (which I admit we weren’t discussing before) I am feeling medium today. I was thinking about why and at first I thought that if all these external things in my life went the way I wanted them to, then I would be happy. Then I realized that that is not true. It can be hard to feel happy when there are a lot of challenges and uncertainties in one’s life but on the other hand, i do know down deep that happiness come from the inside. One needs to feel positive about who they are. I don’t know why it’s so difficult to feel this consistently. Maybe you have it figured out. I think I have some inner work.

But enough about me. I am so excited for your Wednesday night adventure. I’m pretty sure you’ll have a great time, but if not, it will at least be a step in the right direction in terms of doing something new. I’m excited to hear how it goes. You’ll have to tell me everything afterward.

This morning, I’m supposed to organize receipts, an activity I’ve been putting off for at least a month. To get revved up, I think I’ll make myself some “astronaut” coffee: One part brown powder, one part cream colored powder, and one half part white powder. It’s not so good, as you can imagine but it does the trick. I hope you have a great day. I’ll talk to you tomorrow.

So, if you didn’t figure out the title you should really go back to the 2nd grade. No, just kidding! If you haven’t guessed, this post is going to be about boredom. It’s a good old friend that comes for a visit without calling first… the kind of friend that when you try to block out of your life, ALWAYS butts it’s way back in. Now, I’m not saying a little bit now and then isn’t healthy, but COME ON, when you really don’t do anything besides school, eating, and sleeping, it comes around ALL THE TIME. Now, I already know what I want to do with my life, seriously, but that doesn’t do much use for me when I’m in the 8th grade. So, after I get fed up with the usual – tv and computer – what to do? That’s the problem!  w-o-w…..    well, that’s the end of my mini-rant 🙂

By the way this post is not going to be like tmz or some stupid magazine. I am just going to talk about crap you already know. First on the list, what’s the hell with Kanye West. I can’t believe he stopped Taylor Swift’s speech to say that Beyonce should have been on. Like, what the hell was that. Also, I’m glad that Obama called Kanye West a jackass. Out of all people Obama calls him a jackass. Anyway, I feel like combining two posts into one. So I’m going to talk about jokes. Some of them are funny, some stupid, some raunchy, some just plain mean. One that I think is funny and mean is this “You’re so ugly a plumber’s crack says damn what happened to this guy?” Another one that is also funny and mean is “Roses are red, violets are blue, god made me pretty what the hell happened to you?” HaHaHa. LOL. Crap My Pants! That was hilarious. Anyway that was all for today. Live Long and Prosper. MeierGreen.

Hello, there. In this post I am going to talk about my predicament. Now, before I tell you what my predicament is you will need to know some things about me. I am obsessed with video games. My two favorites are Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 2 and Team Fortress 2. My predicament is that my family has one TV. I know that some people don’t have even one TV and I probably sound like a spoiled brat, but like I said before, I am obsessed with video games. Thank god my parents like what they like or I would be rotting in a corner. The reason its good is because my mom likes to watch Battlestar Galactica which I like but not as much as video games. My dad likes to watch basketball which I like but not as much as video games. The reason that this is a big problem is what my sister likes. She likes to watch everything that I don’t. She likes to watch Oprah, What NoT To Wear, Gilmore Girls, and Totally Spies. If you can’t tell I’m saying that I do not like those shows. Even if you do. I don’t. I like The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Office, Friends, and Smallville. Luckily, I have come up with a plan to help my little problem. I am going to teach my family how to play my video games. The problem with my plan is that I don’t know if they like my games or not. I have more hope for my parents because my sister doesn’t like the nature of the games. My parents on the other hand are willing to learn how to play, just don’t have the time. I am hoping that later today (which is Sunday, May 2, 2010) I can teach my father to play my games. Anyway that pretty sums up my problem, so live long and prosper. OH DEAR GOD I’m becoming a treckie!!!

I know that my titles usually give you a general description of what my post is about, but some people might not know what I’m talking today. If there are family guy fans that see this post then they will know what I’m talking about. If you have seen family guy you probably know peter’s favorite “Surfing Bird.” Practically everybody in my class watches family guy, so everybody in my class sings the song. Even I sing it a lot but several times, like a d-bag, I sing it just so people know I’m cool and that I watch family guy. Several times me and my friends just talk after school and sing “Surfing Bird” together. Well that was my post and a short one at that. Live long and prosper.
