Does it make you horny baby???

So I quit taking the birth control. Not completely, I'm just starting later in the month so "that time" won't interfere too very much with our Honeymoon. And I've notice a change.
I'm horny.
A lot.
F is liking this change, what guy wouldn't? But it got me to thinking, Is part of the "birth control" pill's job killing your libido? I don't ever remember reading anything about this being an effect, but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

Has anybody else experienced this randy charge once you stopped taking the pill?????

Brilliant? Or Sad?

Burger King has it's own perfume, or cologne, for men.
Brilliant marketing, or just a sad state of the world today?

It's 11 degree outside.
It was 7 when I arrived at work. The heat in the building can't keep up. So it's very cold in here.
Going to the bathroom was an experience in fast peeing. And washing your hands? ICE WATER. The bathroom doesn't seem to posses hot water. So washing your hands is like dipping them in a natural spring out of ALASKA.
Thank goodness it's WARM in The Homeland! I actually packed my SANDALS!
Now if only I can convince F to give me a French pedicure tonight, we'll be in business!

I seem to have lost my ATM card. This is not good. I remember using on my shopping spree over the weekend, but now, it's nowhere to be found.
So I canceled it.
This is the first time EVER in my life that I have lost a credit card type item. So now I'm all paranoid that someone is out there having a fabulous Christmas on my raise.

Now I'll have to write a check to the present Nazi since I can't get my hands on any money, MAWHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

It's done.

I went to a new salon and got my hair cut.
Not permed.
And the cut looks fabulous.
One thing though, it takes longer to style now than it did before. It's MUCH shorter, yet it takes longer to do. It's not as "wash and wear" as I was hoping it'd be.
Am I the only one who experiences this?

Letting You Know

As some of you know, F and I are going on our Honeymoon over Christmas break. We'll be gone into mid January. Here's the thing, I'm not really close with any other Bloggers so that makes it kinda hard to ask any of them to do a guest post. So, I will try and pre-write as many posts as I can, but I highly doubt that much exciting stuff will happen to me between now, and the day we leave. I can't post while there because I'm quite sure I'll not have any alone time where I can compose without being found out.
However, if you'll promise to wait for me, I promise there'll be LOADS of good stories about the Honeymoon in The Homeland, with the extended family.
Stick with me kids, and I'll tell you tale of a magical coaster ride..............

My 3 1/2 yr old niece wanted F's attention so she called out "UNCLE DH!!!!!!" "UNCLE DH!!!!!!!"
My brother, leaned over to her and said, "It's AUNT DH."
She looked at him, looked at me, looked back in the kitchen where F was standing and said, "AUNT DH!!!!"
"What is it hon?" I queried from the couch. I knew she wanted F, but it was just too cute hearing her refer to him as UNCLE DH.
Frustrated she looks at me and exclaims "I want HIM!!" as her little finger points into the kitchen.
"Uncle F." I told her.

"UNCLE F!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

F was being summoned for a tickle session.
I can hardly wait for him to be a Dad.

My Heart Did Not Grow 6 Sizes *Update* *Update Again*

I have an issue with forced gift giving. Every year, without consideration about other people's financial situation(which most every one has a tight one right now) a few of my department mates decide what is going to be done about giving our boss a gift. This year, I expressed the need to maybe do something other than chip in for a present. Make a donation in our boss' name (she set up a fund when her mother died) or everyone bake her something(she doesn't cook). And I was told that "No matter WHAT we do, you STILL HAVE TO chip in."

And that's when my inner bitch kicked in.

"No, Mrs. Nosey, I DON'T have to chip in." (she is the office gossip and has absolutely no respect for a person's privacy and feels free to ask all manner of personal questions.)

All eyes suddenly find the floor very interesting.

No one wanted to bake anything.

No one wanted to donate to anything.

No one else would speak what was on their mind.

I know that our boss does a lot for us. Lunches, treats, etc. And I appreciate it all. I do not expect her to do these things. She does a fine job of expressing her appreciation for our work verbally and that is more than enough for me. I know I am appreciated.

It's not that I don't want to do anything for her, I just feel that forcing everyone to participate in a group gift is wrong.

And I also feel that it is wrong to make people feel bad if they would prefer not to participate. There are a few of these same office mates who grouse about bringing a dish for office pot lucks. Something they have every right to refrain from participating in. And usually do refrain, but still help themselves to what others gladly make and bring.

I know that one of my department mate's husband hasn't had a steady job in several years, and they struggle on a daily basis.

No consideration was taken for her situation.

I know that another department mate is the primary bread winner in her home which also helps to support some of her off springs, and their off springs.

Again, no consideration was taken.

I know that another one has taken in her sister and the sister's baby and the sister does not have steady income.

No consideration taken.

Another has lost a majority of their savings/retirement due to the situation with the Automotive problem.

One member wasn't event present and therefore wasn't even ask what she thought. She has a new house, a new baby, and her spouse just started a new job. In the automotive industry.

And they all just stood there. Eyes down cast. Not wanting any confrontation.

so I am the bad guy(once again, I objected last year for the first time, which caused much hissing and booing) because I thought to consider that maybe just maybe we should rethink the forced gift participation.

Silly me.

So let's just raise the gift amount! YAY! (yes, that's what they did. amazing.stuck to me they did.)

*They raised it AGAIN, but if I can't come up with it, that's ok, I shouldn't worry. I wonder if this was said to anybody else?*

**I was just 'reminded' of how much I still owe. But not by the person collecting, noooo, by Mrs Nosey. ggggrrrrrrr**

My friend sent me this video. It's apparently made it's way around the web for quite some time now, but it's a first for me.
Just, you know, SHUT THE MIC OFF!!!!!

Seen while driving: A mound of tin foil with a piece of pizza perched atop.
On the back shelf area of the car.
There was no one in the backseat who could reach said pizza.
The driver of the car, actually the ONLY passenger, had on a head scarf tied in such a way that I thought she had a small hatchet sticking out of the front of her head.
Um, yeah.

Also, on a side note, I went through the McDonald's drive through for lunch and when I got back to my desk discovered they had only given me a 1/4 pounder but had charged me for the double 1/4 pounder I'd ordered, which it stated on the slip they'd attached to the burger container. It's cold, and I didn't want to get back in the car and go, literally across the street, to get the burger I'd paid for. So my question is, how often does this happen? And how much money do you think McDonald's makes because people just don't want the hassle of having to go back and get the right thing?????

Change Some More

My boss calls me and my co-worker into her office.
"There are going to be some changes to the Org Chart that is going to affect our area."
My stomach starts doing flips.
"From now on, you(me) and you(my crazy co-worker) and G(the programmer) will form a division and you two will report to G who will in turn report to me."

Now mind you, I like G, we are friends. We have spent many hours sitting together working on projects. G has an actual degree in the field we work in. And on top of that, also posses a Management degree. Qualified? Oh very much so, yes.

(I'm going to whine, so those of you with a weak mental state, stop reading here.)

G has been here 1.5 years. I have been here 10 years. Which I expressed to my boss.
I feel, slighted? Passed over? Shafted? Especially since I have been begging my boss since the day she started to get me and Crazy Co-worker more training and education instead of letting us fly by the seat of our pants. And yet my boss can't understand why I'm concerned about losing my job. Who wouldn't be upset about someone who has less time in becoming their boss? Wasn't there even a movie made about it? G is not younger than me, so that takes out some of the sting.
And I know, I could go out on my own and get training. That costs money, which I haven't had in quite some time.
I know G is more qualified than I am, than either of us. So G getting this "new" title is fitting.
I just feel my position slipping further and further down the "obsolete" slide. I'm very replaceable.
And it makes me nervous.
And frightened.
And a little depressed.

I'll be hitting up a bottle of adult beverages, believe you me.

You know how when someone changes a seemingly small aspect of their appearance it can totally change how they look? A new hair color, a different frame shape for their glasses, a new hair cut, or shaving off their goatee. And you see them, and you're all "What? Who ARE You?? Where you come from???" And you either like it, or dislike it.
Shaving goatee off.
Not happy. Me.
It is like living with a different person. I can't even say it's his twin, because, seriously, he does not look like MY F.
His lips really stand out now. He freaks me out when he smiles.
I've gotten semi-used to it over the last few days, but he is in no way staying clean shaven. He promises me it'll be back within 3 days.
We're at day 2.5. I'll see how it looks tonight when I get home.
Just, weird.
Me no likey.

Out Dated?

I'm going to go with the idea that F will still have his job in 3 weeks(or me mine for that matter) and we will still be going to The Homeland for our Honeymoon. (it helps me not think about the "what if" factor.) That said, I need a new hair style. I have very fine, straight hair. It's the longest it's been since I was a sophomore in college. I've had short hair, I've had medium length hair, I've had long permed hair, and short permed hair. It's very easy to manage when it's permed. So I ask you, my digital friends, Are perms out dated? I need something that doesn't need much up keep or styling whilst in The Homeland. If I could braid my own hair, I'd go that way, while there, but I can't. So I need an easy style. I can't even give you pics of styles to choose from, because I have no idea what I want and my brain has latched onto the practically self styling permed hair.
Ideas? Places I should look for ideas?
Should I break out my leg warmers to go with my perm?
Seriously, I need help!!

F and I spent the day with my Brother and his family over the holiday weekend. F and my Brother went off to do guy stuff while B-S-I-L(brother-sister-in-law) and I were left with the care and feeding of their 2 little ones. My 2yr old nephew has taken quite a liking to F and F to my nephew. After the guys had left my nephew looks at me over his chicken noodle soup and says, "Where your DH?"
Me: "What?"
Nephew: "Where your DH go?"
Me: "I'm right here hon."
Nephew: "No, where your DH go?!?"

In his adorable 2 yr old way my nephew was asking me where F had gone.

A few months ago his 3 yr old sister referred to F as "DH's F."

Makes my ovaries do a dance those two do, let me tell ya.

Is It Just Me?

Is it just me or does it seem that every time I get a cold or get sick, I'm also experiencing that monthly female joy? Like I need a sinus headache and cramps.
Cruel joke world, cruel joke.

F called.
"We got an e-mail from the HEAD Head guy, the VERY TOP guy. He says things are bad, not only here, but over in the HOME BASE Country. It said that last time things were this bad, there were early retirement packages and potential lay offs.
So, DH, this means we have to watch EVERY penny. No more going out to lunch, brown baggin only. That kind of stuff, ok? And I'm REAAAAAAALLY worried about going to The Homeland for our Honeymoon."

Me: "ok."

What can you say about that? I praise all that is Holy that he still has a J.O.B. That I still have a J.O.B.
This is crazy. I don't even know how to react. Like seriously. My brother lost his job. Sweet Miss Molly just lost her job. This has got to stop. The shit hole spiral has GOT TO STOP. You hear that Obama??? Congress??? That's the sucking whirling sound of America going down the tubes. History is about to repeat it's self. We know this isn't the way to go. And this time? We're taking other countries down with us. The Global Economy is crumbling around our ears and Congress wants to know if people will work for a dollar for the year. Is that REALLY the important thing to focus on? REALLY????
We all need to light some candles and say some serious prayers.
