Rant and Rave Wednesday

Let's begin today with a shout-out to Little Ms Blogger for initiating Rant and Rave Wednesday. She always has some good ones, be sure to check her out.

****************************************************************
Rant: I had everything all packed in my carry-on size suitcase until hubs suggested I bring my scrapbook stuff. It seemed like a good idea because for the better part of the week I'll be home-bound with that Outrageous Older Woman (my Mother). With all that crap good stuff in there I had to change to a bigger suitcase that wouldn't be considered carry-on.

Rant: It wouldn't have mattered anyway because all my hair goo and make-me-gorgeous crap is bigger than the allotted 3 oz so I would have had to check my bags anyway.

Rave: I'M GOING TO BLOG CAMP RENO SO NEENER NEENER NEEENER

*****************************************************************

Rant: The family in front of me going thru security was taking forever. It was 2 elderly couples with their grown daughter telling them what to do, how to put stuff in the buckets, where to put their shoes, whether or not to take off belts, sunglasses, where to put change and on and on and on. It was really annoying.

Rave: Although people sometimes complain about the hassles of going thru security at the airport, I'd rather deal with that than have some crazy go thru with a 'B-word' in his bag. You know what the B-word is, right? I'm afraid to type it in case they are reading my blog and come and haul me outta here before I even get on the plane...

Rave: All the security people this morning were super nice. I always try to remember what a difficult job they have and that they sometimes have to deal with cranky people so I try to smile and be nice. Some days that is easier than others. Today it was pretty easy because:

******************************************************************
Rant: Last night I went in to kiss #5 good night and stepped on broken glass! In her room! Grrrr. My foot bled all the way from her room down the hall and into my room, into the bathroom and over to the potty so I could get some toilet paper to blot it. I got the glass out, but I was fairly annoyed.

Rave: Hubby got out of bed and cleaned up my trail of blood - and didn't even vomit!

Rave: We have hardwood floors so clean up was pretty easy

Rave: I'M GOING TO BLOG CAMP RENO SO NEENER NEENER NEEENER

********************************************************************

Rant: Last night I made apple chicken chili for dinner. It was scrumptious. But, I asked the girls (#s 4, 5, and 6) to please clean up the dinner dishes so I could finish packing. They got everything off the table and possibly even wiped it down, but when I came back downstairs there were dishes in the sink and the couple things that needed to be hand-washed weren't done.

Rave: I just left it. I figured "what the hell" I'm not gonna be home to have to look at it. Hubs will be mad and set them straight this evening.

Rave: I'M GOING TO BLOG CAMP RENO SO NEENER NEENER NEEENER

********************************************************************
Rant: Yesterday afternoon #5 calls me in a tizzy because her 'check tire pressure' light was on and she was afraid she had a flat tire. I asked her if her tires were flat. She said she didn't know if they were flat. Finally I convinced her to go to the dealership's service dept and have them check it. She called twice because she didn't know where to go, whether or not to park, to go to service or sales... yada yada yada.

Rant: I don't have time to finish this

Rave: I'M GOING TO BLOG CAMP RENO SO NEENER NEENER NEEENER!!!

Have fun at blog camp. I'm intrigued by this apple chicken chili, maybe you could tell me more.

Fidgeting Gidget said...

I thought the same thing about the apple chicken chili, I think you need to post the recipe (maybe you'll have time while you're at OOW's house). HAVE FUN AT BLOG CAMP! I'm so jealous!

Polly said...

rave and rant is a brilliant idea. I must try that!

I want to know why there was broken glass in #5s bedroom?!? Have fun in Reno!

Amanda said...

I need to know more about the chicken chili apple (what was it?) and the glass on the floor? Kids' rooms are scary scary places. My six year old somehow got four bajillion gem stickers on her floor recently that can't be vacuumed. Everytime I go in there I come out with decorated feed. It's better than glass I guess.

Esmerelda said...

I just like that you said "neeener."

Mango Girl said...

Reno? This time of year? Can I be your new best friend? I want to gooooooooooooooo!

HAVE A BLAST!

xo, Mango

Sunshinemeg said...

Have fun on your trip. The chicken chili sounds awesome.

Sara said...

Yay! (see you soon)

Michel said...

Although I fully understand why security would pull you aside if you did that, but why one earth would you put Blognut in your suitcase?

And frankly, it is just cruel to torture me with upcoming happiness. I wish you the BEST OF LUCK with you mother and may your stay be extended....and your flights all delayed (on the runway)

Best regards,
Michel

PS Send me adderall and all will be forgiven.

I'm going to Blog Camp too and fear I have as much if not more make-me-gorgeous stuff so I'll be checking my ginormous case and probably paying extra! Can't wait to meet you! I hope you're as wonderful in real life, if not I'll have to tell the whole Blog World!!! mmuuooo haaa haaaaa

Matty said...

Go ahead.........rub it in. Yeah, just rub it in.

But hey, that apple chicken chili sounds scrumptious. MMMMMMMMM.

I agree with you on airport security. I'd rather tolerate the thoroughness than to have some nut on my plane with a B.

And oh yeah....OUCH.

marinik said...

MagnificentDebra said...

Good for you! 5 kiddos! You deserve camp! Enjoy!

Hit 40 said...

I hope Blog Camp lives up to your expectations!! You are wound up. Neener Neener Neener!!!

LMAO to your daughter! I hope she was polite to you on the phone while she was freaking out over low tire pressure. I have to die before my hubby. He is in charge of all things car related. I don't want to bother with it.

Beth said...

Are you going someplace?

Have fun!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...
