In which the hubs decides to leave Taylor Lautner lying around instead

My offspring's last dance class of her first year (whoa, the math) was last night. I must say, I'm a little weepy. Another milestone, another level, another reminder how life just keeps on going forward.
To go from this:
To this:
I wonder where the time has gone. From baby to princess. From my arms to the stage. From dependent to "Imma do it." And one day, I'll look back at this, when she's graduating high school or getting married or having a baby of her own and think "Oh my Bert, where did the time go?"

Okay, enough sap

Yesterday I reminded you how crazy un-crazy I get when it comes to the hubs's stupid delightful beverage container. I couldn't bring myself to physically cause it harm (yet), so I've made my point in artistic form. This is your last warning, DD devil. If I see you 'round my parts again, you're going to be sorry.
I think the only way to remedy this is to have my pool boy stream water from his cupped hands into the hubs's thirsty mouth. Of course, I'll pay him extra, but as with everything else, no shirt allowed. And ideally, it should be raining outside. Because rain makes everything look better (except my Diana Ross hair).

How about you...what do you wish would go away?
Heidi Montag?
Food-flavored beverages?
Rejection letters? <-----yes PLEASE.

Candyland. OUT.

You crack me up with the plastic, already. Hah. I'd love my insecurities to split. Yup, pretty much sums it up right now. I know that's the only thing holding me back but, dang it, can't seem to shake the beast.

Thunderstorms at 8:30 pm. This is after I get the little ones to sleep and walk a dog who is eagerly awaiting time to stretch his legs--rain or shine that is.

Hey, here's an idea: you could "accidentally" ship the evil thing to me and I'll work out my frustrations on it.

What I'd really LOVE to live without: Owl City's song Fireflies. (See my blog and you'll understand)

The only thing in my life that is aggravating me right now is the dog kennel we bought for the back yard. Our area isn't fully fenced so for Nesta to have her proper time out there we got a big chain link fence kennel. The thing will be great eventually but it has taken me days already to put it together and it's still not done.

Trust me: me in a wife beater with my man boobs and beer muscle flying all over the place in the sticky Georgia heat is not a pretty thing. Unless you're into that.

Lydia Kang said...

Can I include people? Mean or racist? No?
Okay, then. I'd like the ants in my house to go away.
How's that? Ewwww.

Unknown said...

Hmmm, there a few children shows I can think of that should die a thousand deaths-- I'm talking about you Fresh Beat Band. No Twist, you need to stop rapping right now! Stop that. You're embarrassing yourself. Also, my husband calls you Stretch. I don't know why I find this so funny, but I do.

Elana Johnson said...

Oh, so many things. Most of all: silence. Silence in the inbox. Silence on the phone. Silence, silence, silence! I even have headphones on so I don't have to sit here in you guessed it, SILENCE.

So annoying.

Shannon said...

Right about now it's the neighbors across the creek. They are doing major renovations to their back yard (sounds like they are using dynamite). This time the truck backing up noises are real.

Patti said...

Right now it's the bad weather. I need some sun.

And they do go up fast, so enjoy every moment.

Unknown said...

They grow so fast, don't they. Your daughter is adorable! My little princess is 3 and already discussing who she's going to marry--I'm not ready! :)

Linda G. said...

Aw, I love the sap. And the plastic humor. And the eye candy. Great post! :)

What do I wish would go away? Ants. Stupid little b*st*rds. They're awful this year.

Lenny Lee said...

the pictures are real cute. i like how she looks like a neat little purple fish. i could want it not to be so hot cause our air is broke.

Jo Schaffer said...

Sweet little girl! Aw!
And BAHAHA!!! Taylor and his cupped hands...I died.
I want to drink like that daily...

I could definitley do without the the massive oil spill. )=

Hannah said...

Ironically, I wish Twilight would go away...far, far away.

Tahereh said...

hahaha awww the CUP HAD IT COMING.

maybe you should accidentally misplace it??

Carolyn V. said...

Your daughter is so cute!!!! I love the dance outfit.

Things I wish would go away, allergies. They just make me tired and fall asleep on my computer while I'm trying to revise. Grrr.

Unknown said...

Your little one is ADORABLE! I love her outfit!!

BAHAHAHAHA Die evil plastic DIE! I can't get enough of it! It reminds me of my husbands neon yellow addidas pants that just suddenly disappeared *looks around suspiciously* because they were awful. Hubs was upset... but when they are ripped to shred by dogs (we didn't have dogs, lol) you can't save them!

Taylor is HOT

Lola Sharp said...

Oh, she's lovely! Love the fishy! (what song did they do?)
I so get the sap. My daughter has her recital this coming weekend...but she's 5'7" , doing her finals and an essay on Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities and 14 y.o.---it goes by FAST. Soon you'll be getting eye rolls and snark...and boys a knockin'.

I wish the oil gushing would STOP.

Creepy Query Girl said...

Time goes by so fast doesn't it? My oldest is six now and she's so tall and gangly- no trace of my chubby baby left. She's lost her first tooth and learned to ride a bike without training wheels and I'm in the corner, clutching her pink bunny pyjamas that still smell like baby detergent

Kelly Polark said...

Your daughter is adorable. What a cutie!
To answer your last question, all of the above.

I wouldn't mind getting rid of schools...
And, if I were to have to replace something with something else, I would replace unfinished MSs with finished ones.
