My Name Is Rhonda. I Was A Blogger, But It Has Been Two Weeks Since My Last Post.

I feel like I should be reintroducing myself.
Hello self.
I say self because I'm pretty sure everyone else has given up on me by now.
I thought I would post a quick update. Life is getting out of hand and I just can't keep up. I'm PMSing. My body hurts from soccer and bug bites. I haven't had a good night's sleep in weeks. I've gained 10 pounds. And I'm a little cranky.
Asia is still doing her thing. She has been gone six weeks today, but who's counting? She is coming over for supper tonight and to be honest, I'm a little nervous. How totally stupid is that? What do I do if she doesn't want to come home? What do I do if she does? Shit. Hahaha.
I got a new-to-me car. It's a Dodge Magnum. Black with tinted windows. I'm calling myself Mafia Mama. I think it fits, seeing as I'll be turning to drugs soon if life doesn't shape up, and since I'm PMSing, I may just off someone pretty damned soon.
We went to the lake for the first camping weekend last weekend. It was actually nice. But shhhh.... Don't tell Leon. It'll go to his head. I went fishing for the first time and entertained my family with how "excited" I got (truly it was just totally scared shitless, but it's my blog and I'll lie if I want). My very first catch was a jack that poked his face out of the water and opened up his big-ass ugly mouth so wide I thought he was going to swallow me whole. I screamed. Really loudly. Then he spit out the hook and swam away. I think he was laughing at me, but I can't be sure. I got totally sunburned and was really close to saying screw the rules and going braless at work on Monday. But I chickened out. It would have been really embarrassing if the ladies peaked out the bottom of my shirt to say hello, dontcha know.
I changed the layout of my blog and now have lost my daily reads. You know, the one that updates as my peeps post? Gone. I'm totally bummed, because if nothing else, I would now and then come on here just to keep up with others. And now I don't know how to get it back and I don't remember blog websites. So, what the heck do I do now?
Liv and Cassie have their last day of school today. Next week they will be heading off with their Dad to the lake for 10 days and I will join them on weekends. My weekdays will be booked with dates to see old friends that mom guilt won't let me see except for when my family is gone. The rest of the time I will work my full time job and my casual job for extra cash since we moms all know that when our families are gone, all we do is clean house anyway, right?
So, that's about it, I think. I don't know when I'll be back. I'm worried that if my blog is ignored for too long, then it'll be wiped out. Does that happen? Not sure, but I don't want to risk it.

good title - I feel like that at times and my teenage daughter problems are long gone in the past.
Don't worry the blog will stay as long as you don't delete it.
There are lots of blogs with latest post being last year.

I´m going to comment, so that should bring you to my blog, if you are inclined and have time to visit. You are on my Reader, so I know when you post and I´m there when you are. :) I hope you are coping without Asia and hope your dinner goes well with her. Where is she living now? If I may ask.
Enjoy your girl nights out and hopefully you´ll have a fabulous summer!!

HEY BABE!!!! (Yes, I yelled that!!) Welcome back. Mama missed you. I love your blog. I hope you all just remember that LOVE is your first concern, and all you have to do tonight is remember to be nice to each other. I really really hope it all works out. As I said to Asia a few days ago, there's a whole lotta love in this family, but we don't always show it. And just to keep life interesting, I think you should serve something with vinegar or salt or spices in it, just to remind my girl that a tongue piercing is so NOT a good idea. LOL.

I'm over here...but I haven't posted anything in several days.

I hope you enjoy your alone time, and don't clean too much, or other family members will expect it to look that way all the time.

I hope everyone at dinner is at least civil to each other...and I'm sure that someday, she'll come around, and come back home.

Hi...just checking in...I am Ronda and I used to blog as blogger seems to be acting up. I am having trouble with posting pics...any advice?

Controlling My Chaos said...

You should post a picture of your Mafia car. And please, do NOT clean when your family is away. Chill.

KK said...

I know what you mean. I keep missing a week at a time and worry if it's even still here! Enjoy your summer, we'll be here when you get to it!

Acting Balanced Mom said...

I have been a bad blogger too... things just keep coming up.... and down... I hope things go well with dinner and everything...

How did the dinner with Asia go? Hope the sunburn is healed now? And that summer has been treating you well?

I go AWOL every once in awhile. Feels pretty good, actually.

"we moms all know that when our families are gone, all we do is clean house anyway, right?" - surely you jest. hahahahahahahaha When no one is here, I get take out, drink a beer (total light weight here), and watch whatever the hell I want to on TV.
