You might be a redneck...

So today after I took the kids to school I came home and jumped in my computer chair, all ready to read my morning blogs.

My mom called right after I sat down and invited Trevor and I to come over for "biscuits". I'm like ummm ok I guess I'll come over. But what I was really thinking was that I REALLY just want to sit and read my blogs and be lazy! But I bucked it up and we went over there and hung out for like 3 hours. I think my mom is feeling a little depressed lately so hopefully she enjoyed our visit. Trevor and my nephew were all ready to come back to our house so they played here for the rest of the day.

I got a wild hair up my butt to go out and wash my old car. I've had my new car for a year now and we still have the car that we "replaced". My husband apparently has some kind of mental problem when it comes to getting rid of cars (and bikes, and tires, and lawnmowers). So anyhow, the car has a flat tired and the battery is dead but I think, "I can push it over to the grass". I get it to go backwards and then when it comes to pushing it forward it was like IMPOSSIBLE. Good thing I have a kid! So I went and got Jessica and she helped me push it over to the grass.

We got the car all washed up on the outside and then I was going to clean the inside. Melissa pops the trunk and OMG, what the hell is all this crap??? Scott had put an OLD wall air conditioner thing that DIED like 14 years ago in the trunk. He's had plenty of opportunities to take this thing to the dumps but for some reason he just can't part with it?? Also he had dumped like a ton of nuts and bolts and some other car crap and a bunch of old enery drink cans. Apparently we are saving this car to have a place to dump all our extra garbage??? So I hauled all that crap out of the trunk and vaccumed it all out.

Then I cleaned the inside out. Like ALL DAY. My arms are freaking killing me. So I finally finished it "good enough".

Came in and took a shower and Melissa and I went to Target to get a gift for her friend's birthday tomorrow. Then we went to Applebees. I had to keep trying to bring up things for conversation. She's a nut though some of the things she says. We decided to get dessert and she wanted to get this Triple Chocolate Cake thing with ice cream. They bring it to the table and she's all "I get the cake!". I was like umm no we are sharing lol. I took a picture of her with the cake on my cell phone but can't figure out how to get it here. Anyone???Pin It

With my cellphone I get an option to 'Send' with photos, and then it asks 'recipients'? and you can choose a phone number, or an email adress.. so I email them to myself, then download onto my computer and waa laaa... done.

I was going to suggest the same thing. You should make dump runs while your husband is out. A little passive aggressive, yes, but he never misses the things I haul off. Well, ALMOST never misses them. He has this thing about saving old computers and monitors and cords and software. I swear he keeps inventory because if I try to get rid of it, he knows somehow. Weird.

Men are so silly, did he think that you wouldn't notice that there was a air conditioner in the trunk? Sneak the stuff away a little bit at a time.

Mal's the same. He hoards everything, 'Just in Case'. I think it's a man thing.
