Day 8 of the dreaded 30 Day Shred

26 Jun

Well, today marks the 8th day I have been doing this crap. I figured I would let you guys know 1) I haven’t died, and 2) I am really beginning to notice some small changes. My arms and legs are slimming down along with the flabby baby belly!

I thought for sure this would be much tougher than it actually is. I mean if your out of shape it is tough, don’t get me wrong, but I absolutely thought I was going to die after day 1. Now come day 8 and I am loving it. It creates so much positive energy throughout the rest of the day when I work out early.

I want to give a shout out to all the ladies going through this journey with me, KEEP ROCKING IT!

So far I’d have to give it a thumbs up. When I hit level 2 I might be crying haha.

This is day 7 coming in at 202 pounds.

Drink and Let Drink

10 Jun

I have always talked about water safety, and even drinking and water safety. If you cannot control your alcohol intake or get faded fast please just don’t drink ha! I am a mom, I parent differently than maybe my best friend and even you other moms. Does that make the way you do it wrong? Nope, not at all! That isn’t what this is about. It never is!

I so cool, I let the kidlets drink because I do, NOT!

I so cool, I let the kidlets drink because I do, NOT!

I will never hide things from my son. I want him to feel like we can talk openly, or at least as openly as possible. I want him to know he can come to me no matter what (sex, alcohol, and drugs). With that being said, why would I not drink in front of the kidlets? It would be contradictory to my lifestyle. I feel like I was never a horrible drinker because my parents were open with me about alcohol. If it worked on us I am hoping it will work on mine! Not the best motto, but for this it works.

Some parents do get the luxury of shipping their kidlets off when they want to have some adult fun, but It isn’t my families job to parent my child. That will be left for me and the hubs to do! Not to mention, we are an unlucky breed that doesn’t get a lot of days to ourselves anyways or family that is available to watch baby Linus. Does that mean we shouldn’t cease the day? OH FUCK NO, we would go insane!

What’s the point of this here story you ask me? STOP BEING JUDGEY AND PUSHY WITH WHAT OTHER PARENTS DO! Accept the fact that different methods work for different families a move along! Offer your opinion when it is asked for a not a moment sooner! Mind your business thats all, just mind ya business (from an old tv show haha)!

I Hope My Distant Memories Never Fade Away

29 May

Every single last time I go to write about what it is I want to write about, I forget. Yeah, I know….what kind of blogger am I? Well I am me, that is all, nothing more and nothing less. That is what you will get here. On a side note….

Just thought you may wanna know...

Just thought you may wanna know…

ANYWAYS

 

I am not even sure where to start, okay well, I registered for my classes in the fall. I have 2 so far and need some fillers. Calculus II and Art. I saved art for the end on purpose. I am artistic? No, okay I lied. I am not in the least bit artistic, but I love art! That counts I am sure.  I will most likely be taking it with the BFF who is just starting her college journey as I am closing up mine. I will graduate this fall with an Associates of Applied Science and an Associates in Pre-nursing, where I will start working and my BSN journey. Minor in Spanish. Kinda a big deal around here. Not many go on to college or to even do anything.

Memorial Day happened this week too. Did you know that? I forgot until last minute, I feel ashamed. A lot of my family is or was Military. Remember that post I did about my grandpa? If you didn’t feel free to check it out.

I feel like I need to take the time and let you know my reflection on the somber and exciting day a day for Memory! I feel so amazingly blessed to live in a country that may fight for my life and freedom, even if not completely free, ya know? To stop their life to fight. That means giving up their own

families or even the ultimate sacrifice their life…..for you and for me. Even if you don’t support the countries president or whatever you have where you live or other officials, the soldiers deserve some respect. Okay so here is this day for them. What should we, the people do on this day?

Well I say we should BBQ, swim, drink, and whatever it is your family or friends likes (watching movies, being lazy, spending it with the kids etc). I do not think they would want us over here feeling bad for having fun, after all isn’t

that what they are fighting for, so we have the chance to do as we please. So pardon me when I do just that and BBQ, drink, spend time with family, puff the occasional fatty and whatnot. Now I know a lot of people think oh yeah this isn’t about BBQ’s and having fun or whatever, but YEAH IT KIND OF IS (yeah I seen the memes going around fb)!

My cat, oh my sweet cat, Died late Memorial Night. He has had a brief battle with AIDS after getting into a fight with an infected cat down the road. His journey ended. He was 14 years old, how fitting. This cat I tell you he was a warrior always holding his own and watching over us and the kids. Pets become like family and it is always sad to see them pass.

The BIFF and I decided to take the kids to Pizza Hut today (just so happens her mom works there). Scored some free grub, then loaded the kids up took them to the park. Played our asses off and decided it was too damn hot for that crap today. Left and hit up the sprinklers while us mamas got our tan on….um if tanning means ending up looking like lobster that is. My baby fell in the grass today and his newly broken

tooth started to bleed. He brushed it off. Parted ways with the biff to meet up with the cuz and hubby to do some swimming.

It has been a busy week already and shows no signs of slowing down. If you could ship some wine my way that would be greatly appreciated…..possibly even a spa day? I need it on top of my wifely and mother duties, however throughout all of this I remain humbled at how great people actually are. How blessed I am to call myself a wife, mother, and friend. The little moments truly have been the best in my life and I cannot wait to keep making more memories with the people who mean the most to me. Let’s cheers to not taking advantage and for granted of what we actually have for once. 

A-Z of ME

18 May

There is really so much I could tell you, but I guess starting with the basics is a good way to go!

Well, I am Ashley (*AA* from The Dirty Diaper on FB). I have a wonderful hubby, who is just as crazy as me. We made a son who is now 15 months old (as of yesterday) his name is Linus. Well that isn’t his birth name, but it would be totally cool if it was. He carries around a blanket and is usually dirty (CHARLIE BROWN), so that’s where the name comes from. I wouldn’t expect to see a lot of pics or anything of my husband. He is kind of anti computer. He has a fb but its only because I set it up for him.

Oh, it's just me and the hubby, but mostly me haha!

Enough about them, this blog is about me, haha No really I talk about them a lot. They are my family.

I am from a small small town in Tennessee. Redneck if you will. I have lived in the same house for 24 years, well almost 24 yrs I moved out for a year and a half. Apartment life just isn’t for us! Inspections and all kinds of other privacy violations. You wouldn’t know it because I am making a blog, but we are some private people. Now we are 5 deep in a 3 bedroom house with one bathroom. Expect to hear more about this, it blows six ways to Sunday, ya dig?

I have a strong personality, and can sometimes be conflicting with people. If I come off rude, well most of the time I don’t mean it, but sometimes I do! I am just blunt….I do a lot of unconventional things that most people would consider crazy. I don’t think it’s that crazy…..It’s just life!

EXPECT NO JUDGEMENT HERE, JUDGEMENT FREE AREA!

I feel like it is a must to touch on my Dirty Diaper Family. They have become so important to me over the last few months, and cannot imagine not having some of you wonderful ladies in my life.

It's all us TDD Admins

It’s all us TDD Admins

Hey, they have blogs too, go to the menu bar on this page and their names are there. Come on try it, just click a name, you won’t be disappointed. We are all so different yet get along so well.

I give lots of advice even if not really asked for it, I’ve been through more than my face and 24 yrs can ever begin to reveal. I am sure I will share at some point about some of these things.

MAKE ME OLD

MAKE ME OLD

DID I MENTION I HAVE A POOL, so you might have to pry my cold dead body from the pool to get me in here and write, maybe get some funny drunken holiday stories (4th of July is always crazy here).

If you call me a redneck I promise I won’t be offended. It’s a way of life I wouldn’t trade for the world. Some of the nicest people here in TN, however you can also run into the “I wanna kill everyone’s spirit” person. Those people are everywhere, don’t let it get ya down.

As you can see I have ADHD, cannot focus on one topic for more than a few minutes. SO be prepared for my scatter brained chaos to ensue.

Real life as it comes, be prepared, we will talk about anything from the alphabet to the moon and back.

Oh yeah here is some more me haha

Yup you guessed it, it's me!

Yup you guessed it, it’s me!
