What's UP, USPS???

Every. Single. Year. Why is it that USPS manages to lose my mail every year? They try and tell me it's because it's a NEW subdivision. Hello??? We have been here SIX years now. How freakin' long does it take for them to figure out that we are here?? We do go through mail people often, but come on!! So, I found out the other day that something that I ordered through USPS was lost in the mail. Now, I find out that something my In-Laws sent hasn't arrived after two weeks. Seriously??? And it doesn't only happen this time of year, either. It happens all throughout the year, and I am having to call creditors to let them know I am not a flake, but my statement didn't come. Um....embarrassing!! It NEVER happens with UPS OR FedEx, JUST USPS! Arggghhhh!
Now I understand why people go postal!

TT #11 - 13 Favorite Mom Quotes!

These are all from the Hallmark book, "It's a Mom Thing" by Tina Neidlein. There are so many more quotes it was SO hard to pick only 13!!

1. . I still try to buy cute underwear, but not too cute, because what do you think got me into this mess?

2. So, if I become a stay-at-home mom, does that mean the kids have to stay home, too? Just checking.

3. Those last 5 post-baby pounds are impossible to lose! Especially when you haven't lost the first 20!

4. Wow...I must've kidproofed the cleaning supply cabinet a little too well. Apparently, even my husband can't get into it!

5. Weird how having a baby makes you remember to take that birth control pill. And sometimes two, just in case

6. Shouldn't running errands count as exercise?'s called "running!"

7. Telling another adult you have to "go potty" doesn't make you pathetic. Okay, but just a little.

8. Show me a mom without stretch marks and I'll show you --- actually, I'll just sob. Maybe don't show me that mom, 'kay?

9. There are so many fairy tales I love..."The Mom Who Found Time to Paint Her Nails." That's a good one.

10. They call it a baby "shower" because it may be the last shower you ever get to enjoy again.

11. Can someone please send me to time-out? Hour...half- hour...I' ll sit quietly --- I promise!

12. "Who's the Tiredest Mom" is not a competition! But if it is...I'm winning!

13. "What to expect?" (There is a picture of a stork with a baby in the book) Here, let me sum it up for you real quick ----- 1. Lots of worry 2. Not lots of sleep

I got this meme from HolleeAnn and it looked like so much fun, so I did it. Enjoy!
Here are the rules: Type the answer to each question into a Google image search, and you pick an image from the first page of results...easy peasy...and fun.a BIG tip make sure you set your Google search to use "strict filtering" (Filter both explicit text and explicit images).

1. Age on my next birthday

2. Place I would like to travel (Carribean)

3. Favorite place (Disneyland!)

4. Favorite food (sushi-yum!)

5. Favorite animal (Monkey!)

6. Favorite color (Purple! Oh, heck yeah! THESE boots were made for walkin'! Can I get a wha wha??)

7. Town I was born (Santa Cruz, Ca)

8. Name of past pet (Grover)

9. Name of past love (Jason...I should have known HE was bad news!)

10. My first name (Kelly. Wow, I really have NO idea how they got these photos of me..Gosh...I am so humiliated.)

11. Bad habit I have (Starbucks Frappuccino's Mocha Coconut...SO SO good. Why don't they make those anymore?? Maybe they saw the 20 lbs it left on my ARSE!!)

12. First job (babysitter)

13. Grandmothers name (Nellie Jean. She was my mom's mother who died when mom was 11. I am Kelly Jean. Guess I was named after her, huh?)

14. College major (Child Development)

If anyone so feels inclined to do this meme, do it! I hate tagging, and I refuse to do it, so there!!

Next time I will choose the small images. I hate that they're so big, but it doesn't look easy to change them at this point...and I gotta get outta here!
