Anybody other than me heard the word "asshat" before? Mr. H and Movieman were making fun of me for using that word on a comment to DivaPrincess about her sweetie. They had never heard it and wanted to know where it came from. Honestly, I have no idea, I just know I have heard it before.
I googled it and found this funny site though, so obviously other people have used this word and it is not something I just made up. There are several sites relating to the word "asshat" out there.

Ok, on to other things now. My baby is mostly better, wants to run around and be a crazy kid like normal. We took her to the park today since she was feeling better. I am still staying home w/ her tomorrow, just because I can. I already have the day off anyway, and I love to hang w/ her by myself.

More vomit..

Ry has been puking her guts up since 3am. Can't keep water or 7-up down. Poor baby. We are both off today and I am working on getting tomorrow and Wednesday off too. I know my husband, who is off tomorrow and my Mother in law who would be w/ her Wednesday will take care iof her just fine, but I want to be home taking care of my baby.

Her docs office said there are many viruses going around and could last 5-7 days, man I hope not!

My new friend Mei

I made this for my friend Rob and his love Mei. I know it is cheesy, but she is so sweet and makes him so happy, I don't care! He is the brother I never wanted and she will be the sister in law I do want.

Good times...

Rob was just over with some wine glasses and this yummy (for wine) cheap Australian wine. He was over to celebrate that his current roommates will soon be moving out and Phillip will be moving in. It was fun and we talked of all the plans he has to make his place all nice for his new love to arrive in March. I can't wait to meet her!

Other than that, nothing much else going on this weekend. Just me and Ry tomorrow hanging out. Sunday, Steph and I will go to the gym in the morning. I should also get this messy house cleaned up this weekend. Most of the Christmas stuff is packed but still a few items remain - hey it's not February yet, so I am doing ok.

I got puked on for the 2nd time in my life the other day. Luckily, it was my child this time and not some drunk guy I was dancing with.

Too many "airplane" rides up in the air I guess, and I got shot in the eye w/ some puke! I did good in only gagging once or twice on our way into the bathroom to clean up.

The title of this blog. Was in reference to "Operation U People Suck" that my Mother was supposed to start well over a year ago on her husbands kids.

4 out of 5 of them are total assholes, and are the main reason I don't ever visit her, she always comes here. I must admit, they come by it honestly, they act like their Dad, but when he wants to he can actually be fun to be around, not so much the case with them.

So "Operation U People Suck" came up about a year or so ago, when my Mom was asking what it would take to get me to go visit. I told her she had to go a whole weekend, with his kids in and out of the house, as they are always there - hence why I won't visit - Anyway, I told her to go a whole weekend totally ignoring them, not even speaking to them if spoken to, just treating them as if they don't exist and that she couldn't tell anyone why. Those that know my Mother, know this is totally against her character and would be very hard for her to do. Which is why it still hasn't been done. I told her to just ask her husband for lessons, as this is how he has treated me in the past. Didn't speak one word to me for over 2 months, because I told him to shut up once when he was insulting.

This is for one of 2 reasons.

1 - his kids just suck and when I have visited in the past, I spent most of the time when we were at her house in the guest room, as one or more of his kids is always around and in the 8 years my Mother has been married, I haven't exchanged more than 10 words w/ 3 of them. They just act as though I don't exist, and after living in the house for a short time while I lived in Utah, I returned the sentiment. Other than the screaming match through my bedroom door w/ the oldest one day.

2- I wanted her to show her husband what it is like to treat his kids as crappy as he has treated me, and still does on occasion. She has never been anything but nice to these shitheads and they do not even deserve to be graced w/ her presence.

Yet, they get all the benefits of my Mother on a daily basis, and I get visited 4 times a year. She should be here, watching her grandchildren grow up, not there watching his. Of course, that will never happen, as he will never leave his kids, he just expects her to not be close to hers.

I know I am an adult now, w/ my own family, and I should get over it, but I can't.

Now she wants me to come there for Mothers Day weekend, instead of her coming here. It sucks, because now my Grandma, who of course wants to make her daughter happy, is saying she will buy our tickets for me and Ry to go there as that was my excuse not to go, beyond all the other crap. I have tried other ideas, like we all meet in San Francisco and stay in really nice hotels for free, but they aren't going for it. Of course, I could just say no, but I don't want to disappoint my Mom either.

Supposedly, she has already told her husband in the past I will only come visit if his kids stay away while I am there, and he has agreed to it. I do kind of want to test this and see if they will stick by it. Plus it would just piss his kids off too.

The strangest dream

I was taking a quick nap, before going to get my eyebrows ripped off my face at the salon.....

And this is my dream....

Mr. H and I were making dinner for my Dad and Stepmom, we had gotten the funniest shaped potatoes, some were huge, and twisty, some were tiny, and some even looked like little high heel shoes (guess which kind I picked for myself)

Then my parents disappear and there is my Mother in law sitting on a stool in our kitchen, talking about how she put Ryster down for another nap, because she was being grumpy.

Then there is some guy outside, still haven't figured out who he was, but apparently we hadn't seen him in quite some time. He comes in and sees Mr. H, while I am still in the kitchen. He's like "dude, you look different" my mother in law says something totally cheesy like, "he's turned into such a pretty man" So, I have to look out the little opening in the kitchen to see what is so different about him.

There stands my husband, in a short sleeve dress shirt, wearing a tie, w/ a little morman name badge. I said something along the lines of "holy shit, I need a picture of this" and then I woke up.

I think him dressing like a mormon missionary shocked me awake!

Happy New Year

Hope everyone had a great holiday. Ours was great. The kids got everything they wanted and Disneyland too. It was great to have my Mom here as always. "Uncle Phillip" was here when we got up, as he had worked all night and then came straight over. My Mother in law came over as soon as we woke up and called her so she could watch the kids open everything. In the afternoon, my sister in law came down w/ her boyfriend, his daughter and my nephew.

The Monday after Xmas we went to Santas Village w/ Uncle Phillip and Mary and the rest of the family. Phillip had gotten tickets through work. We all had a great time. Tuesday, I had to go back to work, leaving Grama at home w/ the kids. Tuesday night my Mom and I were going to go to a movie, but decided on dinner and shopping instead as the movie theater was pretty crowded. Got some new clothes courtesy of Mommy. Wednesday, I went to work at 6am, so I could get off work at 330pm. Grama was again home with the kids and sewed them some super cute bathrobes. We took her to the airport, where of course after dropping her off and being half way home, she calls to tell us the plane is late.

On New Years Eve, David, Rylee and I went to a friend of his from work. They bbq'd a fine meal and we played my new Trivial Pursuit Pop Culture DVD game that I got for Xmas. At midnight the kids were outside blowing whistles and screaming Happy New Year, we toasted w/ some Champagne and came home. It was fun. We haven't done much of anything for a few New Years now, so it was nice.

That's about it. Ry and I are off to Sams Club to get a few things, eat some lunch and then nap time. Daddy works till 1030 tonight and Taylor is at his Moms. Movieman, may grace us with his presence, we'll just have to wait and see.
