7 Quick Takes about Grown Children, Being a Hermit, and Music



It’s Halloween annnd I have nothing to do except get my 15-year-old son a mum for his homecoming date. Whhhuttt? I don’t even know where the time went. Halloween has always been our favorite holiday and when my husband and I got together we made it a point to have his boys so that all 7 kids could go trick or treating together. Which meant 7 costumes and tons of candy. I don’t know how it happened, but at some point they all started the Adams family Halloween auction. They would sit at the big table and yell “I have two Peanut butter cups!” and someone else would say “I will take them and trade you a Hershey’s bar!”. That would go on for hours. It was so fun for them and I would be so annoyed. They would laugh, eat candy and scream when someone would find the candy gold. Stacey and I would make them give us the Halloween Parent tithe. It was so much fun. It feels like that was just yesterday and now three of our kids are adults (that is just scary) and one of them has a child of his own to take trick or treating. I celebrated not having to deal with Halloween last year, but this year, I’m kind of sad about it.

Our first Halloween 2008.


Speaking of creepy things on Halloween… I can no longer smile. I have no idea what the heck happened, but I’m guess that they last 4 years as a hermit have something to do with it. Two things have contributed to my hermit life 1. I was a newlywed and 2. My husband bought me an awesome house. So, I didn’t  accept when invitations to things and then people stopped inviting me pluuuus I was a real biatch for a while so that didn’t scream “Invite me to your party!!!” at all. Because of that, I have almost no social skills. I have always been socially awkward, but waiting tables forced me to come out of my shell. Then Grey Goose really helped me to have a personality when I was drunk which is how I would get my life. Now, after all these years of keeping to myself I have lost every single social skill that I learned being a Hooters Girl and a bartender. Yesterday I went to Mass and I smiled at a few people, the look on their face made me feel as if maybe I wasn’t really smiling. My husband says that I look like Sheldon when he tried to smile and that it’s creepy. I need help ya’ll. Please pray for me.



Remy Ma’s mixtape drops today. I know ya’ll were all DYING to know that info. I like Remy for a lot of reasons; mostly because I love female rappers. I don’t like all their stuff for obvious reasons, but Remy Ma is a comeback story and I love comeback stories. I have no clue what is true when it comes to her case (she went to prison for a while) but I like a few of her songs. It will be nice to see if the fact that she hasn’t been influenced by new trends makes her mixtape good or not. I will see at 3pm.


Speaking of new music, the new Jason Aldean album is freakin’ amazing. There isn’t a bad song on it! I love me some Jason Aldean music and this is by far his best album. Also, Lil Wayne’s Carter V album is still not out! It was supposed to be dropped on Cinco de Mayo and then October 28 and now it got pushed back again to December. I am not even gonna worry about it anymore, just wake me up when it is dropped. From what I’ve heard so far, I don’t much care for it. The beats are sick, but it’s the same ol bitches and hoes lyrics. Yawn. And in Rock music, the new Seether Album is still fantastic. It’s a few months old, but I am still jammin’ it.


I know that my taste in music is not why ya’ll read Catholic blogs, but I have nowhere else to go with that info. When I post it on FB nobody cares and that triggers my rejection issues. If I put it on my blog at least I can pretend ya’ll are all nodding and interested in my music information which keeps me from having to add another day a week of therapy to my schedule.


Speaking of schedules, I really need to get one down. But I suck at doing things on a regular schedule. I am better at a to-do list and not a strict time schedule. Either way, I need to figure out what I’m doing each day so that I can get it done. I tried to make as set schedule with me getting up at 6 am and cleaning the kitchen at 7 am. It’s like I don’t even know myself. That is not gonna happen. My life would be so much easier if I was a morning person, but I am not. Nope. Not gonna happen.


I will be hosting a radio show on the Real Life Radio Network starting in January. Please pray for this project, it’s going to be awesome and I am so excited. I am also extremely nervous. I have an irrational fear of being excommunicated. It’s irrational, but it makes me hyperventilate anyway. It’s gonna be so much fun! Check out all the other hosts!
