Something Entirely Different for Us Today

I did not have a good idea for a post today. So I sat down at my computer and just tried to make some magic happen. When that didn't work, I got lost on the internet for a while (2 hours) mostly looking at gifs (moving images/graphic thingees) and Tumblrs (which are like blogs for people that are cooler and younger than me) and playing Candy Crush Saga. After a while, panic started to set in. I was accomplishing NOTHING.

So I tried again to write post for you guys but I was lacking inspiration. 

And since actual writing wasn't working out for me, I decided to try something new. A kind of round up, but with gifs. Here we go, hookers...

I got a sponsored post! And when I found out I got to be part of a campaign with Minute Maid, I was like this:

Check it out right here, you guys. This year, I'm going to get my juice or die trying. Also, last I checked only about 5 people had read it, so you'd really be doing me a solid if you checked it out.

I also wrote a post about nearly having rage black outs. One was caused by a racist old jerk who hit a baby on a plane and also about these awful shoes called "Daddy's Money" that are the worst things ever. I want to go to the Skechers office and be like: "Daddy's Money?! Really?! GAHHHH!!! Make them all go away right now!"

And then I read this comment from AmyMo on that post:
"I was livid, LIVID about that drunken bag of rotted cantaloupe touching that beautiful little baby on the plane.... You made my day with the "Wolverine" battle cry though. I would have been screaming, "Stay golden pony boy!!" as the air marshalls tasered you."
And I literally LOL'ed and thought about how much I love everyone who hangs out with me in Mommyland. And then I saw that Anna from An Inch of Gray has been reading here, too and I did a little dance about it because she is amazing and I love her:

Guru Louise was over at Babble this week talking about an Alabama lawmaker who said something weird about babies inside of pregnant ladies and Guru was all like:

And she also wrote about how she told her best friend and husband that she's pregnant. It looked a lot like this:

And yesterday I wrote about how my husband travels all the time and I mentioned that I knew my whining would make people want to face punch me. Then I got a comment from a woman whose husband is currently in Afghanistan and she was all - "Yah. I do want to punch you in the face, you big whiner." I imagine she's doing this right now:

And I read her whole comment, and I was all: "She's totally right! I suck!" (like a big baby).

But it's cool. That's part of the internet and I asked for it. And anyone whose husband has been deployed 7 times is a total bad ass in my book and has earned the right to face-punch me.

And speaking of the internet! When Guru Louise and I got the email a couple of weeks ago about being finalists for the Parents Magazine blog awards, we were like this:

And there's actually a chance we could win! The voting ends on Sunday and if it actually happens... This will be me ALL THE TIME:

So if you feel like voting for us, click on the groovy graphic below. It will take you to their FB app. We're in the category of "Most Likely to Make You Laugh".  No pressure though. Only if you feel like it. Voting ends on Sunday.

Parents Blog Award Finalist

I took a bunch of these gifs from my favorite Tumblr When in Academia, which you totally check out if your life has anything at all to do with a college campus.
