Under Pressure

I have this tree in my yard...a big one.

While all the other trees are changing colors, this bitch is holding steady with her green leaves. I mean not even turning a shade of light green or light brown..

Just green..

Green as my grass..

I think she is protesting the fact summer is over. She is kinda like me, we live in denial about many things.

What the hell is up with that?

I also have another tree whose leaves are dropping like flies, but are dropping green, not brown or red or orange.

I don't get it...

Pretty soon I am going to go out and start painting the damn leaves with my paint brushes...

It is just bizarre.

And I don't much care for bizarre things.

Not really.

Ok, maybe a little.

~

I am depressed today. Wanna know why?

Because its Wednesday the 8th...and ya wanna know why this bugs me?

Because if I don't leave right now, today, this very minute, I wont be to Detroit in time to see Def Leppard tomorrow night when they play at some stupid hockey shit at the fox theater.

Wanna know what I'm doing instead.

nothing.

wanna know why?

because I decided against robbing the tots of Christmas. I'm sure I will regret that later.

I just could not come up with a good enough excuse to drive to Michigan, other then to see my boys.

And really, I would rather sit home, with my kids and watch Drake and Josh and Icarly and Spongebob all day...

No really, I would.

please.kill.me.now.

Yup, I would rather spend time playing nice family time games, watching family tv, and waiting on these kids hand and foot, cleaning the house and making sure the hubs has clean underwear.

I would rather do ALL that, then spend one night with 5 men who I have loved more then half my life.


cause that's just how I fucking roll..

~

I'm going to spend my weekend now eating mass quantities of corn nuts.

Drinking mass quantities of vodka and cherry pucker.

and having mass quantities of dirty time with the hubs.

Don't be hatin.

This is really what I would rather be doing.

I swear to God.

damnit.

I am going to go out on a limb and say I am going to have a way better weekend here then I would if I were to spend a long weekend in Michigan where I would see my boys and spend some time with freinds and family..

My day sucks, too. I came home from work yesterday and couldn't figure out why I seemed so cold. I crawled into bed yesterday afternoon at 4:30 and only got up once before 6 this morning. I think I have the plague.

The kids wanted to go to Taco Bell last night, and I said no, I want you at home. Which really meant I didn't want any of those dang-blasted phone calls saying I needed to come to their rescue for something.

My oldest said, "Why? Do you think you're going to die or something?"

Compassion. I love it. If I wasn't so sick, maybe I'd leave to drive to MI to spend the weekend with your boys.

I even called in sick to work, and if I get fired, I really don't give a flying fuck.

End rant here.

It's hard to be so good... blast there songs while you have a good time... maybe if you close your eyes and try real hard you can pretened you are there...

Monogram Queen said...

Wellllll just look at it THIS way - you don't have that long drive. Feel better? You may thank me later!

Scarlet said...

You know all about sacrifice. This is good. Your kids will have presents under the tree because you didn't get to play with Rick Savage's guitar/heart strings. There's always the after-Christmas shows you can look forward to.

Rachel said...

Ahhh...you are a good wife and Mom! They all will appreciate you more for this. Someday. Trust me.

Dame Wonder said...

being a momma takes much sacrifice. you are a peach of a momma!

Haphazardkat said...

Mmmmm...corn nuts...
DAMMIT!
You and your suggestive powers.
I gotta have me some corn nuts!!!

Flip Flop Momma said...

metalmom,

Jobthingy,
I know its bizzare huh?..i wonder what the hell thats all about.

greeneyes,
aww, thanks....but im afraid many cherry puckers wont even numb it;)

Scarlet,
i wasnt gonna pull his heart strings, if u know what i mean...

Rachel,
thanks..I sure hope so.

Dame,
thanks...ur the best.

Kat,

mini tacos.

Sweets said...

that has to be an evergreen tree :)

Shannon said...

You're a good mom!

just_tammy said...

I thought there was no way in heck you would really pass on the concert. Your butt is probably in the car heading to see the boys. The kids can just have a smaller Christmas. Presents don't have to be piled a mile high and spread throughout the lower level of your house. Really they don't...

Anyway, try to have a great weekend no matter what you are up to!

Flip Flop Momma said...

Sweets,
kinda looks like a maple tree 2 me:)

Shannon,
gosh depends who u ask..hahahaha

Tam,
sadly, im right here....

pissing here...damn..

The Doozie said...

I'm pretty sure you have lost it. Is that tree an evergreen variety?
i have absofuckinglutely nothing intelligent to say

Flip Flop Momma said...

Dooze,
well the last 5 falls it has been a Maple Tree...I mean, im not saying it didnt have some sort of sex change operation...I cant say 4 sure.

IamDerby said...

Ahh a nice long weekend with icarly! Man, I hate that show.

Krystal said...

It's the grown-up thing to do, you know. :)

Glad to see you're feeling better and all.

You'll need the Vodka and Cherry Pucker to get through ICarly and Drake and Josh. If you drink enough it'll make Spongebob a life changing experience. He's so full of wisdom for life...if you're trashed while you watch, listen and learn...BTDT.

Manic Mom said...

Long time -- I totally remember you and read one of my old posts and was like, "Oh I wonder what she's up to" so I came by to check it out and say hello!!! Nice to see you're still blogging!

Flip Flop Momma said...
