Bring on the new year!

Did you think I died? Did you hope maybe I did? LOL
Be not afraid – I’m alive!! And back to update you on my ultra exciting life!

Christmas is over! Thank God if you ask me. I crave routine and normalcy and Christmas is all about weird routines and weird places and let’s face it – weird people – that you have to pretend you like.
My social anxiety goes into overdrive!

Despite the hives, we had a great Cmas and my kids got more presents than one person needs in a lifetime.

Rambo had texted me the week before Cmas and just said, “Hey – what size bra do you wear?”

OH SHIT was my first reaction. Then I started begging him NOT to buy me a bra.

He did it anyway. He got creative and looked at a bra in the laundry basket for a size. He got me a beautiful mint green rhinestone encrusted bra and matching thongs from Victoria Secret. Gorgeous and it fits. He got me a PINK yoga pants set and some perfume from the ‘ol VS too.

We, of course, attended church and one of my kids, of course, turned three shades of white during the mass and ended up throwing up in the church bathroom. I mean really – what’s Cmas mass without someone throwing up in the middle of it?

I watched White Christmas and Elf and Christmas Vacation too many times to count. I didn’t even gain weight….because I’ve had the flu for almost a week. I didn’t have the “in bed wanting to die” flu…but just generally don’t feel great and am nauseous so YAY for me – I didn’t gain the normal 10 lbs in 2 days like I usually do.

I saw my brother for the first time in 2 years for about 5 hours. That’s all I’m going to say about that.

I played Christmas Bingo and liked it.

I worked every day of my 7 days off just to forget how much I missed Rambo. I have four more days off coming up and I’m not exactly sure what I’ll be doing those four days.

Oh wait – yes I do! I’m dying to take down my Cmas decorations and get our life back to normal.
Normal is good for crazy people like me.

Rambo has to work every day so we won’t celebrate New Year’s Eve or Day. I’m a little nervous about him working that holiday because the inmates have been acting up lately. Holidays are tough in prison. When the inmates get no mail and no visitors – they finally realize they are all alone – even on Christmas. And then they lash out at the guards. I just found out that a woman guard was assaulted on Cmas Eve. Rambo will tell me the details tonight…but I’m not sure I actually want to hear them.

That’s pretty much it. Wasn’t that knock-your-socks-off exciting???

Back to work for me. I’m sitting in my office with the tree lights on and Cmas music blaring. It’s just me and another girl in the front office today and that’s how I like it. I have no problem working the holidays so other people can be with their families. Rambo and I will email each other all day about how winning the lottery would fix everything.

I’d never leave his arms. Well, except to go out to buy shoes. Duh.

Bring on the new year!!!

Normal will be back up and running very soon. Hang in there.

Sounds like a beautiful holiday, though. Glad you are surviving.

Normal sounds so good to me! I've still got one more Cmas celebration to get through though then it can get back to normal around here. Also - I have to work New Years Eve and New Year's Day this year. Weirdness that happens every 13 years or so around here. : ) Missed you!!

Trust me we already have one of our 3 trees down. I make the most of Gene's time home this week and get that honey do list knocked out for the most part. I am gonna have to find a job asap to help with bills it is just more than he alone can handle right now in this crappy economy. Glad you are getting back to normal. The prison thing sucks sending prayers for the guard who got attacked and all of those still there keeping them together and safe.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should not marry American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

I encourage ALL American men to NEVER MARRY American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above, and up to 40 percent of domestic violence victims are MALE, with their female partners INITIATING the violence)

3. False sexual harassment charges

4. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

5. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden the fathers from having custody or contact with their own children

6. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

-25 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs for mental illnesses.
-25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
-85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
-70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
-The majority of child molestation, child abuse, and child murder in America is done by WOMEN.
-American women are NINE TIMES more likely to murder their own children than the biological father

Another thing I noticed, is that whenever you bring up the topic of American men marrying asian women in front of an American woman, she will make some racist and hateful comment about asian women, calling them "slaves" or "mail order brides". My question is this: If American women are so "independent", "confident", "strong", and "empowered" like they claim to be, why do they feel threatened by Asian women? Why are American women so jealous towards Asian women? The real reason is this- Asian women are 1000 times superior to American women, and any American man who has dated/married an Asian woman will tell you this.

If you want to get married, find a nice foreign girl from Asia, or South America, or Russia/Eastern Europe. DO NOT MARRY AN AMERICAN WOMAN UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!

Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.

American women are living in their own pathetic little fantasy world, where they think they are a perfect little princess. Sorry, but you are NOT a perfect little princess.

Give American women the husband they deserve- NONE!

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
