Welcome to Snarkfest

Welcome to my snarky corner of the web. Join me as I discuss everything from wine to chocolate. There may be a few other topics mixed in there too. I talk a bunch about my amazing offspring, 19 and 17. I sometimes go on and on about my secret crush on the amazing Mike Rowe. I talk about things that irritate me or things that make me happy. Sometimes I just talk to hear myself talk. Feedback is always appreciated but please make sure it's respectable. No nudity or profanity. I'm the only one allowed to be profane. But any and all snark is welcome and appreciated!

Mellow Saturday

How exciting is my life?

15 just wrote that. She's looking over my shoulder as I'm trying to pull some thoughts out of my ass, and when I leaned back in my chair, she decided that you would be interested in finding out more about her. So there you have it. She's got no grasp of the English language, and can't spell. How proud am I?

So I had a very exciting Saturday. Let me start from the beginning. When I came downstairs to let the dogs out at 8:00, I heard a very distinctive sound. A very muffled "meow". After checking the basement and garage with no luck, I knew there could only be one other possibility. The cat had, once again, gotten into the fridge last night when the kids weren't paying attention, and she was stuck in there all night. I swear to God, I cannot make this shit up. This is the third time she's done this. I'm totally unaware of what her attraction is to the refrigerator, but she tries to get in there every time she sees the door open. Someone asked me about the temperature in the house compared to the fridge, maybe it's too hot in here and since she can't take off all her clothes, she needs to cool off. So I went back into the fridge to get the thermometer out and see exactly what the temperature was in that little box. Guess who jumped back in when I had the door open to get the thermometer. Sometimes I wonder if she wasn't dropped on her head as a kitten.

Anyway, after that little bright spot of my morning, I hit the gym with the Nazi and did an hour and 10 minutes of pool jogging. Once that was over, I rode the stationary bike before taking 15 to her first trumpet lesson. She's great at playing trumpet but has decided she wants to try out for the W.V. All State Band, and her band instructor has let her know that most kids who make the All State Band take lessons. So now she's taking lessons. Once we got home I mowed the grass and had the kids rake up all the leaves. Jealous yet? Go on, you can admit it. I won't tell.

Then it was time for a shower. I dried my hair, put on a cute sweater and some make up and the Nazi and I went to the local wine shop for a wine tasting. We were there for 20 minutes. That, my friends, was worth putting on make up. And can you guess what I made for 15, 13 and I for supper? If you guessed chocolate chip pancakes, you'd be right! Wow, you're really good at this.

After dinner, 13 went to a sleepover, 15 did her homework and I went to watch a movie with the Nazi and her hubby. Now I'm looking forward to setting the clocks back an hour to live one more exciting hour in this exciting day!!

And how did YOU spend your Saturday?

  1. Hmmm .. though nothing quite as interesting as the cat in the fridge event, I did awake at 7'ish when the Hubs got home so we could let the dogs out. They are very particular in the mornings and won't go out unless I take them. Me. Personally. No one else. They won't budge a muscle. Then I fell back asleep until about 9. Peanut was picked up by my mama around 10 for a sleepover. Jelly and I went to town to get his bothersome wrist checked out at the med clinic, picked up some lunch together at Applebee's and then I let him drive home while I slammed on my imaginary brake the whole time. Then I sat on the computer until I woke up the Hubs around 6. We went to see a movie and have been on the computers since we got home a couple of hours ago. Big Fun :)

  2. Well, let's see; I did laundry, cleaned up the kitchen and dishes after hubby cooked dinner, then watched the Boston Celtics basketball game. Not too exciting. Well, actually the game was!

  5. We took the recycling in, then we took V out for her birthday lunch (at Chick-fil-a because they're closed Sundays), and probably played some games and read some stories. It's a bit of a blur for some reason...

    1. Sounds like a crazy day! Remember the days B.C.? Before children? Bet you said to hell with the recycling back in those days.

  6. OMG! The cat is hysterical. You'd think she'd learn - you did say THREE times? And I'm behind on my reading, she may have gone for a fourth... And how does she sneak in without being noticed? I don't want to know.. LOL!

    1. She HAS done it three times, and on my Snarkfest Facebook wall, I've got videos of her jumping into the fridge two days in row this week. My kids don't pay attention when they open the fridge door, so she just jumps in and no one knows. Until the fridge starts "meowing".

I do read all comments and try to respond to them. Unless you're trying to get me to visit your website: Cheap Louis Vuitton Bags. Then you can go pound sand.
