Mrs. Flinger: A work in progress

UPDATE TO Mrs. Flinger October 16, 2015

Because the Universe has a wicked sense of humor, after this delcaration, my blog threw up all over my last upgrade.

So I'm starting over using Craft. Turning 40 and kid entering Jr High next year, sometimes it's just time for a change. These archives will still exist in the way the last child goes off to college and their room is the same for 20 years, but it's just time to move forward.

Bloggy Gossip and other links to keep you from having to fold laundry Dec 09, 2005

45 (written before there were those extra eleven votes. YEY for eleven more votes!) of you to win. So, uh. Thank god for the random drawing of numbers. I’ll do that sometime early this coming week so you still have time to put in your ONE vote if you’re still stalking. ::I see you.. yes you there, go ahead and speaketh your mind!::

If you haven’t found this site yet, you need to go there. Now. I’ll wait. ‘k. Are you back now? Yea. You had to stay a while and look, didn’t you?

Thursday Thirteen! Dec 08, 2005

Thirteen Things about Mrs. Flinger
1. It’s hard to come up with something y’all don’t know since I’m fairly honest here on my blog. But let’s start with my boobies, shall we? Always a good opener. They hurt. A lot. ‘k. 2. Sometimes I think our babysitter does a better job with LB than anyone else. I don’t think that’s normal. Or is it? 3. Today is the last day of finals for my University job. As much as I am happy, It’s always amazing how fast these quarters go by. I’ll almost miss coming to work here for the next month. Truly, it’s a nice break from the molars. 4. I put on a pair of pre-pregnancy jeans yesterday. They zipped. I wore them out of the house. They were a size ten. I almost passed out. 5. I’m not losing the weight like I’d hoped. But who does? I’m tired of thinking about it or worrying about it. And y’all are tired of hearing about it. 6. I wish it would snow. A lot. Buckets and Buckets so Mr. Flinger couldn’t go to work and I’d get to sleep in. 7. I’m getting selfish in my middle age. 8. I have more gray hair now than my mom did at my age. 9. Oma is coming next week. 10. I’ll try to be patient with the fam. But what are the holidays if you’re not at least a little peeved at your family, right? 11. I don’t know if I should take LB to church or not. I don’t think the way I used to. I’m not even sure there is a God. Or I do, but I don’t take it as literally as I used to. 12. Start thy period, damnit. JUST START. So I can have my chocolate martini!! 13. I’m glad I participated because I *ALWAYS* see Sleepingmommy do this and I wanna be cool like her.

More talk about how my nipples can cut glass and I’m about to hurl at the sight of food Dec 07, 2005

#got pee sticks?

I swear to you, I can convince a nun she’s pregnant. No, Really. I could. I think I have a problem. There should be a name for this. “reallybadguessingatpregnancysymptoms-drom” or “howthehellcouldIpossiblybebutIthinkitanyway-drom” or “mynippleshurtlet’sassumeit’sababy-drom” ‘cause y’all. Every. Effing. Month.

One of these days the girl-who-cried-pregnant will actually GET pregnant and there will be no people to give a rat’s ass. “Yea. Right” they’ll say. “Uhhu.. SUUUURRREEEE.” And “Are you SUUREEE you didn’t just pee on a used stick?”

Thus is born, a new category, “times I think I’m pregnant but I’m not.” And so it shall be…

*note* holy crap! I didn’t realize just how often I write about how I think I’m pregnant. Ok. It’s official. I don’t think I am anymore. It’s just a little sad when you see that many posts all in one place. ::Slinking away into corner now holding a tampon and waiting for AF::

Now, if only I had her body… Dec 05, 2005

#Rants and Raves#The Flinger Family

We went Christmas Tree Hunting today. I’ve been growing older and more grumpy each Christmas, although I fully admit having a child makes me a little giddy with the possibilities and hope of the season. Yet, still, I hold a realization that I am the grown up and all those cookies we bake will stay on my hips and all the crap we put out will have to be dusted and get put away and *I* will most likely be the one to do it. So where’s the line? Where is the “low stress, low maintenance” Christmas meets Scrooge? ‘Cause there are days when I swear to you, if I see one more damn pine needle in thy child’s mouth, I will toss the tree and buy a fake one.

And you will like it, sayith the Mommy.
