Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Being helpless sucks

I really REALLY HATE being dependent on other people to do things for me.

Not only do I have to rely on Army of Dad or Hot Rod or whoever to help me do things, I get yelled at when I try to do things myself. It totally sucks. I couldn't even take a normal bath tonight. I'm trying to lounge in my garden tub with my right leg dangling over the edge. It didn't work too well. Wasn't much relaxing possible. I'm not sure what I'll do when I have to wash my hair. I guess I'll have to rely on AoD again. I hate that. He hates that, too. Or, at least, that is the feeling I get.


I'm really not one to depend on others. I never have been. It is one of those traits that often tests my faith because it is hard for me to rely on God and not try to solve all my problems or challenges alone. I have to take deep breaths and hand things over to Him. It is REALLY REALLY HARD for me to do. I am woman, hear me roar. My parents raised me in such a way that I would never have to depend on anyone to take care of me. They wanted me to be self-reliant. Well, for the most part, it worked. Of course, I am not mechanical, so that area is lacking for me, but that is why God gave me big boobs. I can get men to do these things for me. But, I digress. It causes a lot of hardship for me, emotionally, because I don't want to depend on anyone for anything. I have found, in the past, that if I have to rely on others, I'm often disappointed. It is one thing that is both good and bad about me and Army of Dad. We both have high expectations of ourselves and others. The difference is that I don't strive for perfection any more and I don't expect it out of others. Army of Dad - he still does. I keep hoping he'll grow out of it one day.

On a lighter note, we tried to watch Elf tonight. I don't think we lasted 30 minutes into the DVD before I had to shut it off. Uzz and my eldest both told me great things about it, but I just couldn't keep going. Sorry guys. It is a thumbs down and I regret wasting 30 minutes on it.

    I can empathize with you.

    When the knee was operated on, I showered- with my crutches, leaning against the shower wall, and a large black plastic bag tied around my leg- to the hip.

    Whose Paranoid

    True enough.

    I actually liked King Arthur. Scary, I know. Let me clarify that I liked it for the humor aspect of it. I just enjoyed checking out all the hotties in the movie - from the knights to Keira Knightley or whatever her name is. I just cracked up at Guinivere all camo-ed up in body paint and a bikini shooting the Saxons. I about lost it. My neighbor and I went and we just laughed hysterically throughout the movie.

    Elf had its moments, although it did start off slow. Not as bad as Anchorman I thought. Maybe I had just expected too much out of it. I do want to rent it when it comes out to see all the extra features and outtakes though.

    But as for worst movie ever.... nothing tops Nurse Betty. I considered filing a class action lawsuit against the studio, Blockbuster and Katy's own Rene Z. to recoup the $3 and the 2 hours of my life that were wasted watching this piece of steaming dung.

    You are fired BT ... I had to trash your comment because you gave TOO much information. *wink*

    And, WP - I may be trying that because my bath was crappy with my leg hanging out of it and AoD kept fussing at me for getting my upper thigh wet and the water running down into the splint.

    Elf is a little slow in the beginning, but it really is funny, but then again...I think Will Ferrell may be the funniest guy alive these days. Mini-Uzz (aka Pickle) and I love watching Elf over and over and we even freely quote the movie...leave it to a son of mine to have a passion for quoting movies like I do:-)
