Nothing like a 4 yr old to keep your self esteem in check!

Yesterday I got a bit gussied up. (Just to be clear, "gussied up" in my world means I put on more make-up than mascara/eye liner, and a fancier than normal t-shirt.) It was a bit chilly so I threw on my fancy jacket for good measure. Now this jacket is amazing. I love the thing. It is sleek, black, and makes me feel like all that. It flairs at the wrists and curves into my "so-called" waist, accentuating all that once was of my girlish figure. Needless to say, I was feelin' fancy. I slipped on a pair of non flip flops (amazing, I know) and informed little man that time was of the essence, this beauty was not gonna last-- we'd best get out the door. He looked at me and stated, " Mom, you look UGLY, that jacket is HID-E-OUS!"

Thank you my offspring, Thank You.

Little Man thoughts

Next door, this has been going on all morning.


Little Man has been faithfully watching from here:

When I asked him how it was going, he informed me, "The big tractor is digging for worms, Mom."

Album needed



I love three reality shows--just three. Does that make me a junkie?
Mr. KIR would like to know if there is there a twelve-step program available. (AS IF--like I'd take it!)

My problems...I mean favorites are:
(in no particular order)
The Biggest Loser (did you see this newest one? There is a contestant who put weight on after she lost her hubby, 5 yr. old daughter and 2 1/2 week old son 2 yrs ago to a reckless driver-going over 100 miles an hour? Sad!)
American Idol
and the one this post comes from-
America's got talent.

This guy--Drew Stevyns--was deemed a "not so talented" by the judges for the first few rounds.(We never even got to see his audition/first song.) But after the 40 finalists were chosen, Simon Cowell told them they needed to bring a few talents back--Drew was one of them. Thank Goodness! He ended up coming in third place--AWESOME!! I LOVE HIS VOICE!

Problem is, I can only find one song to download. I have been listening to it OVER and OVER and OVER.

Will someone
PLEASE sign the guy and make an album already. MR. KIR is about ready to trash any speakers that come within two feet of me. And we all know that is not a good idea...hey, is there a twelve step program for anger management?

Self Esteem boosters...Oh Wait...

Two events recently that have seriously wounded my ego--that is E G O...

1. Mr. KIR was out of the country again for 9 stinking days! So, when he returned home late Friday night, I immediately went shopping with a girlfriend early Saturday morning. Good for the soul..right? I know! Now before I continue, I just want to state for the record (which record, I have no idea) that even though I am 37 years old, happily married to mr. handsome himself, the mother of three adorable kids, the event happened at a Goodwill, and the men were weird-o's, it still stung. Yes it did, I tell ya!

See, my friend is beautiful--not in the "Oh, she is so sweet--beautiful," but G O R G E O U S--even though she is like 700 years older than me (okay, maybe just a few years. ) She is also happily married and the mother of three adorable babies, PLUS, she gets to call me friend--dang her...some people have it all!

Anyway, we were shopping away at the goodwill looking for treasures to transform, and these two guys were also shopping. I passed them like 12 times. I thought nothing of it/them until I found mrs. gorgeous and she says, "Those two guys asked me some lame question about a party...and when I told them, 'No party,' they just kept talking to me and bugging the bajjeeebas out of me."

AHHHH, I am so sorry you pretty little princess, that even though you are like 900 years old, wearing a wedding ring and with your OH SO GORGEOUS friend, guys still hit on you. (Spit raspberries loudly here please.)

And 2. THIS...




My passport photo.



I think I may just stay in the country forever.

Pony Girls letter

Pony Girl brought this home:

It melted my heart... UNTIL I got to the "Other people do not think you are the best..." part.

WHAT? Who has she been talking to?
