Okay, because I know you guys love me [or maybe you don't but I pretend so], I have two favors to ask of you.
First off, I know this great girl Kim [through MomDot] who blogs at What's That Smell?. She's a riot and you should stop by her blog at your earliest convenience! Anyway, she is in a contest for SAM-e and I would really love for her to win as their family needs the opportunity. Right now, she's behind in votes. Sooooo, favor #1 - can you go vote for her? Click here. You can vote once a day if you are using Internet Explorer.
Second thing. And let me start out by saying that I know I'm not fat!! But I've put on about 10 pounds in the last year and it's starting to really bother me because I have jiggle in places that there wasn't jiggle before, and I don't fit into my jeans as easily. I need you guys to hound me to work out! I've got a great workout that I've been doing but I need someone to basically kick me in gear so that I work out every day and not, like, once a week. Okay? Just a comment or an e-mail if you remember. Thanks again!!
And one last thing. This isn't a favor but is really funny. So, you guys know I am concerned about Punk turning out like 'real mom'. Lately, I get the feeling that we are FINALLY getting through to her, and I couldn't be happier! She's finally realizing things are not alright; like when 'real mom' flakes out or forgets to do something she promised she would do, that it's not okay [among other things, but that's the easiest to explain]. 'Real mom' called on Sunday to tell us she was going to be there at 6 instead of 8 because they were driving home from Mesquite and they were earlier than she expected. LAME, but okay, we'll just make sure to even it out next weekend when we pick her up Thursday instead of Friday. Mmmkay? :) So, we tell Punk her mom is coming at 6, and she says "Why? That's stupid!!". It's pretty typical to hear "that's stupid" in our house for a myriad of reasons and it cracked me up to hear her say it. Then, 'real mom' gets to our house to pick her up and she says to her, "You're 2 HOURS early, did you know that?!"
Punk has been taught not to have her own opinion when she's at her mom's house. She is just supposed to go with what her mom wants, and what she wants never has any play in decisions. She has also been taught that she isn't supposed to speak her mind, so when she said this, I was OVERJOYED!!! I am so happy that she is finally feeling brave enough to say how she feels about things. I get so fed up with her mom taking advantage of her and using her as a pawn in her stupid mind games. I hope the pattern continues. :D
