blogging etiquette and my tree

I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend with the fam. Things here were good. But I must say I am looking forward to getting back to normal. Ya no, kids head to school and The husband heading to work. There is such a thing as too much together time!!!!

Saturday night I had a conversation with Kissing Spawn. He wondered why his little 5 year old sister got on his nerves so much. I told him because she is 5 and your 8. I then asked him " don't you think you got on my nerves when you were 5?"

Then he says " well mom, you know I have gotten much wiser with age!!"

Oh really son? This coming from the same boy who told us all Saturday afternoon that he is now too old to practice kissing on his sister,s big barbie head because he was now a man!!..Alright then.

Here are some shameless pics of our tree and the spawns....Ho-Ho freaking Ho!!

Remember folks I have a crappy as$ camera!!!....

dear Santa, I have been a good girl this past year....Um....Err...I mean day. This is Just_Christina,s very special list...I better get everything on this damn list or there will be hell to pay...mmkkaay??

1. A digital camera that is not crappy as$..( Santa I take pictures everyday, please get something that will last...Thanks big guy.)

2. I-pod. One of these days I am gonna die of electrocution from taking my headphones in the tub while I belt out awesome tunes while I bathe and soak my tired dogs!!..And my freaking CD,s keep getting wet...

3. A winter home in Hawaii. Nothing fancy. Just 6000 square plus feet, with palm trees and coconuts. 5 plus bedrooms, 5 bathrooms (so we all have our own) and an olmpyic size swimming pool in the back 40. ( sometimes a girl needs her space, I have learned that over the past 4 days)

Thank you dear Santy,
I will leave you some rum with your cookies this year:-)


ok I am off on another subject now.

I am going to talk about blogging etiquette. I have noticed thru the last few months that there needs to be some rules established. SO I have taken it upon myself to write up a decree for us all to adhere by.

1. If someone takes the time to comment on your blog, please have the common courtesy to acknowlege their comment. I know not everyone has the time for that, I know!!!! But even make a comment back to even one person so your readers know you read it...I try to respond back to all my comments. It is hard sometimes, but I find it is really important..For those of you who hold down 2 or more jobs and have kids..You are excused from this rule:)

2.Dont steel materiel from other bloggers. Unless its a meme or something cute that you have asked permission to use. I am not talking about silly nonsense things..We all borrow from eachother there, I am talking about stealing your style or your stories. Trust me..I have seen it...(none of my regular bloggers..Some passer byers I have seen....) If you don't have enough materiel for your own blog..Please don't steal my stories and use them as your own...mmkkayy?? Just don't blog you damn fool.

3. If you can not update your blog more than once a month...You will be removed from my blogroll...Here again I realize folks are busy and can not make time everyday to do it..Just something once week is all I ask. Don't worry..I have removed you already if this applies to you:-)

4. Don't add someone on your blogroll just because you see they added you....Again, I have removed these already....I am very careful about who I add. I don't add right away. I have to try your blog on like a shoe, break it in before I take that step. All the blogs on my list are dear to me. Each one is different and they all rock.

4. If you go month or so and don't get a comment from a regular reader, chances are they have stopped reading your blog. Why? It doesn't matter, don't feel jilted. But I sure as hell aint goin back there anymore..I wont give my 3 minutes if they don't give me your 3 minutes....

again this is just a hypothetical

5.If you don't enjoy someone's blog....Don't leave them nasty comments..Just stop reading..It makes you look like a horses ass..

Ok these are just things I have come across or have been thru myself.....I hope you find these useful!!!

Feel free to add more rules if I left some out.....I would love to hear what you think.

OK here is our Hello Hotties for the day.

Johnny Depp...ok, hold up, I need to get my tongue back in my mouth

and Nicloe Kiddman..She is just your basic all round classy beauty

sorry this is so long..I always try to keep mine short and sweet..I hope you made it thru..

Have a good Monday....



Peggy said...

You had to go bring my hottie out for everyone to drool on! He has been my private hottie since Edward Scissorhands. My daughters roll their eyes at me everytime I see him on tv or see a pic of him... And he is all least in my dream world LOL

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Peggy..well he has been my hottie since 21 jumpstreet..heehee

but I will let you have him:-)

momyblogR said...

Thanks for the blogging rules. I'll do my best to uphold them all.


momma of 2 said...

Ah the blogging rules...thanks so much for excuses me from the commenting on the comments...once things settle down and I am down too 1 freakin' job - then I'll go back to commenting on my comments....ugh.. (Did that make any sense?)

Have a great week!

Cliff Morrow said...

Dear Christina, you've been a very bad girl this year. So it looks like I'll be able to deliver everything you want. I'll leave the ipod and the camera on your new bed in Hawaii. Love Santa Baby
PS, all you have to do to complete the deal is deliver Nicole K. to a farmer in Nebraska,,,no on second thought, that farmer has all the women he needs. Uhh, lets forget the whole deal.

Mike said...

I liked most of the rules....I will try to adhere to them. But I'm getting old and

Angel Girl said...

Great guidelines! I completely agree :)

The spawns are way too cute, and I love how the little one has that "why the hell is he touching me" look on her face lol.

I am not a big fan of N.Kidman, but that's a good pic of her :)

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

momyblogr, you normaly do sweets:-)

Momma, aww, you knew I was talking about you:-) and I dont mean you anyway..I have got rid of most of the ones I am speaking of..heehee

Cliff, well suit yourself, now I have Nicole Kidman here and no place to take her..oh drats!!!

Mike, well you follow the rules..thats why your my main dude:)

Angel, oh no, you dont like Nicloe Kidmann..crap!!!
glad you agree with my rules..not like I know what the hell I am talking about anyway..LOL

Working Mom said...

Cute pics of the spawns! I'm glad I'm not the only one that has fully decorated the house!

Love Johnny Depp! I so miss 21 Jumpstreet!

I'm back to posting again, by the way! I'm probably just going to do it once a week though!

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

denise, so glad your back posting..i am on my way over right now:-)

keesh said...

well, I will sure try to abide by these rules, but i can barely remember what I did an hour ago, so you may have to give me friendly reminders such as "hey dumb ass, you didn't respond to my comment" or "WTF is your problem, you haven't blogged in days." you know those kinds of reminders :), HA!

Cute pics of the kids! i love the garland around the stair case. Do you have a real or fake tree? it is pretty!

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Kish, it is real..i hate real trees..they smell and leave needles all over..but, its what the husband wanted..

and kishy, no worries honey, I really was not talking about my peeps..well the peeps that are still on my list anyway:) I know with jobs and kids blogging is the last thing we worry about...I was just having a moment when I worte that..but they are pretty damn good rules though..LOL

Jodes said...

nice tree and stairway!!!!

Tee said...

I think some of those are very good rules.

I don't always reply to all the comments because some don't necessarily need a reply. I do always visit people back though.

You did a good job on the tree! You do need a better camera though! My digital camera was one of the cheaper ones and doesn't do too badly. The prices have come down so I hope you get one for Christmas. We want to see the cutie faces more clearly :)

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

jodes, thank you;)

Tee, these were just things i was thinking about in the middle of the night..dont hate me..heehee..and i dont think you have to answer every comment, i agree, some dont need need replies..i am just anal:)

(and i dont mean the butthole)

Anne said...

Dearie-you crack you me up-you're just so REAL and darn adorable I love reading your blog!

I'm a bad ettiquette type-not because I'm a weenie though-mostly because I'm always chasing someone somewhere or changing a diaper or wiping a nose and my two brain cells don't function so well when they're being pulled in different directions like that!

TMI huh?

Anne said...

Oh yeah...(see brain problems) I love the tree and I am so with you on the digital camera thing! Mine was a whole $20 ROFL!

I NEED a new one.

pack of 2 said...

Yep...good rules. I don't like the blogs that the people NEVER respond...I don't really expect a comment back everytime...but ...c'mon..once & a while at least.
I'm like you & try to comment back to each person.

I haven't blogged for a bit so you will have to excuse me;)Too lazy at the moment.

Ummm...good luck on getting all those Christmas list items!


Heather said...

You tell them how it is! I loved your blogging etiquette.. I'm so guilty of the first one. Sometimes I comment back.. but sometimes well I forget. :/

Do I get a spanking? ;)

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Anne, why thank you my dear..Thats me..adoreable:-)
Glad to see you..please come back..and I too am alawys chasing 2 year old!!! but when i can get her to nap or watch tv..i am good..heehee

Shelly, I knew you were with me on the comment thing:)...its just nice to have feed back..and you and ange are one of my favs..and I have noticed you have not posted tuesday..get with it girls..LOL
( I am kidding, I love u guys)

Heather,bend over honey..ok that sounded bad..

and I know its a pain to comment back sometimes...i do not expect everyone to do it..i was just being a bitch..and I am sorry:-)

Kristen said...

ok, now I am going to have to be better about my commenting back. If I didn't have a screecher climbing up my leg, I would do better. I promise to try.

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Kristen, oh sweets!!! I have a feeling I have just made people feel bad today and this was not my intention..all you guys are awsome..If u dont have time to comment back, dont. I just have no life and have my laptop handy all day..

how is marel? I have not seen her in a few days..hope she survided work on black friday:-)

The Blog Whore said...


I am one of those there LURKERS. The ones who read and hardly comment. I hate people like me, so I am trying to be better.


I loved your list btw.

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Thersa, so your a stalker huh?...its ok, i love it when u do comment...and I always u say." I am a blog whore and love comments"..heehee

The Blog Whore said...

I am such a dirty little blog whore. I cannot help myself.

I'm a lurker, not a stalker...heehee. Stalkers are scary, lurkers are just creepy.

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

thersa, my appoligies:)

thank you for clearing it up..i was gonna get a restraing order:))

Peggy said...

Thanks for stopping by and leaving the comment about mother. hugs,

vani said... sorry god for using your name in vain, but thank u, thank u for creating such a gorgous creature!!! johnny depp...*drool*

vani said...

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Marel Lecone said...

Hey, great pictures, as usual. Looks like you have been busy with the Christmas decorations--wow and it all looks great. And, regarding the rules, I think I have said this once before, you're such a hardass! :) I just got your comment today. Thanks for checking up on me. I think I'm in the process of a break from the computer. I'm trying to fix my downstairs computer, trying to sleep whenever possible, work, and be the mom. One day, I didn't even think about the blog--I know--shame on me. All is good. Take care. I will check in when I do. :)

Sandy said...

LOL! I just watched two movies, one with Johnny in Secret Window and the other was Mean Girls! You touched on both with the photo and the "rules". If you don't know what I mean, you must rent Mean Girls asap---it is more of a comedy which was a pleasant surprise. LOVE the photos! I left my camera at my MIL's house so I won't have any new ones for a week. Even a crappy camera is better than no camera at all! : )

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Marel, there u are!!! I have been looking all over for you.

take care..I know what u mean about taking a computer break..just be well and take care your babies..i am here and will check to see how your coming..if u dont post..i will email you..u are specail to me..and I cant let u go that fast:-)

Bossy♥'s YOU said... sayin I am a mean girl???..LOL

Melis said...

I say I love all of your rules! I think I will just make a post of my own, and claim that I wrote them!!!!!! :)~

d said...

Oh yes, hello hottie!

Loved him since 21 jump Street too, and Richard Greco- oh man, was he yummy, but have you seen him lately? Ick, gives me shivers, and not in a good way.

Glad you wrote those rules. People not commenting back on a blog really ticks me off. I've seen people who get a lot of comments still take the time to respond to every comment, so really there is no excuse. If you don't want or care for comments, turn 'em off for goodness sake. And when someone picks and chooses just certain people to comment back to- Grrrr, that makes my head feel like it's gonna explode. Geesh, if you want comments, if you have the time to write a post then you have time to comment. (and so ends my rant)

Hope you get everything on our list. Perhaps you could print it out for the hubby and leave it around the house- whereever he goes, on the mirror in the morning, his side of the bed, just make that list haunt him- how could he not make sure you get your goodies?

Jewl said...

MY MY... We are very anal about our Blogging...LOL I will try my best!

Southern Fried Girl said...

Hi, I just found your blog - so not sure how but I did. I love the blogging etiquette. I happen to be kinda shitty about leaving comments on my own comment thing responding to someone. I tend to just go to their blog and answer the question or at least thank them for stopping by if they are a first timer. :) I have read a few of your posts and like the blog. :) You are too funny. I will have to go back and read some more when I have a moment but right now I am fixin to watch some football. :) Catch ya later gator. :)

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

southern fried girl
