Thankful Thursday...Bitchville Edition

I am in a cranky mood this morning…beware….(and it’s not even “that time of the month.”) Hopefully, I can stop this crazy train to Bitchville with my “Thankful Thursday” post. Think I can do it? Hmmm…let’s give it a whirl…

I am thankful for this guy….


He made watching American Idol bearable for me last night. I LOVE David Cook…love to hear him sing and his eye candy-ness (yes, I just made that a word) is suh-weet!

I am thankful for Catherine’s six year old sense of humor…

“Mom, do you want to play “Blend-in” Bridge? (London Bridge)

“Are you guys watching “Pirates of Your Favorite Band” again? (Pirates of the Caribbean..hee hee)

“Bone yard looks full today, huh?” (as we were driving by a cemetery!)

I am thankful for Tween Caveboy’s newfound desire to keep his long shiny locks healthy and clean. I'm also thankful he's become an amazing Zombie Killer.

(I hate flaming zombies...)

I am thankful for Rae Ann @ Critical Mass for tagging me to share 7 things you may not know about me. (hope you don’t need therapy after this…)

1. Balloons freak me out. I can’t be around them. My kids, however, enjoy using them as instruments of torture on me. (Don't even try to make a balloon animal around me...I will go postal on you...It won't be pretty...)



2. I think clowns are a menace to society.


3. I love pumpkins. (this may have something to do with the fact that I grew up in Circleville, OH…home of the world’s largest Pumpkin Festival…)


Baby Boos are my favorites!

(We sell lots of these at Black Crow Boutique! They come in orange too!)

4. Because I live in a rural community, my wireless high speed internet is limited to 5 gb per month. This has put a HUGE damper on my stalking abilities. I cannot even tell you how much grieving I’ve been doing this past week over not being able to visit ya’ll daily. It’s like a knife in my heart…


5. I LOVE Halloween! (I even own a Halloween shop, Black Crow Boutique! I will tell you all about it very soon…some of the giveaway items are from my shop…)

6. I used to play tag in graveyards with my cousins and friends. Creepy, but fun!

7. I love to watch Ghost Hunters with the Tween Caveboy.



If you want this meme, grab it and enjoy!

I am grateful for Debra at Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History & Ashley Amazing for sharing this awesome award with me!


Thank you, ladies! You know I love you! I suck with a capital S at giving out awards, so everyone who reads this today, please share in my love and post this on your blog!

I am grateful for Noah’s Mommy at Project Mommyhood for including me in her 10 Blog Reads! That rocks my socks off!

I am grateful to Misadventurous Mommy and her giveway that I won! Woo Hoo! (very special to me because of Chilly's heart situation!)


I am grateful to all of you for reading this cranky post of mine!
I hope you will come and visit me on Monday for my 100th post so I can show you how grateful I am!!! (here’s a linky to check out some of the goodies I will be giving away!)

p.s. My frown is now upside down:)

Kristina P. said…

Chaka said…
I'm with you on the clown issue. I have two words about clowns 1)Poltergeist, and 2) John Wayne Gacy. What kind of person would want to be a clown?
jenjen said…
I can totally relate! I get raging PMS - it's about to start any time now. It's a good think my husband is out of town. LOL

I loved reading your 10 things. I also love Halloween! And clowns are freaky!

I hope you have a great day that will cure your PMS!

XOXO

blognut said…
THIS is your CRANKY post?

Oh, Honey. You're, like, one notch above 'slightly irritated' at teh start, but then you're totally Pollyanna after that. I don't think you need to worry.

I, on the other hand, would have chewed off someone's face by line 4. Next time you want to be cranky, give me a call and I'll give you some pointers!
pam said…
I wouldn't mind being around you on an off day.

You are the best!!

Smilie:)

xox
Clowns truly make me want to cry. I'm VERY freaked out by them. Halloween is one of my all time fav times of the year! Ghost Hunters is my guilty pleasure. I'm so diggin on Jason. :)
Alexis AKA MOM said…
I love ya girl and your thankful items made me smile when I needed it!

Oh boys I can't wait for the days! LOL

Hope you having a wonderful day! Much love, don't be on the computer too long and run up that bill ... LOL I don't want hubby to kill you ... LOL
Raven said…
I love yer cranky posts most of all, I think. It's nice to know that I'm not the ONLY one out there who is annoyed by a lot of things.

We watched Ghost Hunters last nite, but I'm pretty much over that show. The minute things SEEM to get exciting on their end, they decide to wrap it up. Grrr...

And, the hubs plays Boxhead Zombie Wars when he takes a break. He's told me that I should feel very secure should we EVER come under attack. I feel so safe.

...sent you an email! Smile a lot today, Beauty! We all love you!

The Blonde Duck said…

Ben's scared of clowns. They really bother him.
blueviolet said…
Where's the cranky? Seriously, where is it? You need to learn to be a better bitch. You stink at that with a capital S.
So sorry your in a cranky mood...I was there yesterday, everything just pissed me off!

And I so love David Cook too...his music is pretty good but he could say or sing nothing and I could just look at him for days...yummy!
Andrea said…
I'm interested in hearing more about this little botique of yours.. I love Halloween, too!
A Psych Mommy said…

Yeah, clowns are the worst. And I also don't really like Balloon animals. And Halloween is a MAGNIFICENT holiday!
As always, you make my heart smile!
Debra said…
This is how you are when you are cranky? Really? You are wonderful even when you are "cranky"!You give cranky a good connotation.

Jenners said…
Ok...I need to know more about this shop. It sounds so cool...you are so cool!

And this is second time in two weeks that someone has had that horrible IT clown photo! I DO NOT NEED THAT ... THAT BOOK AND SHOW SCARED THE BEJEEZUS OUT OF ME! If you aren't careful, I will post a photo of a balloon on my blog!
Susan said…
Love the seven things. Although I don't have a problem with clowns that pic of the one you posted is very creepy.

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)


A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…
