When we adopted Gator from the local shelter, they couldn’t provide us with an exact birthday for him. He was about three months old and had been brought in on the 22nd of the month. So we decided February 22 sounded like a good day to celebrate.

So happy birthday, Gator!! You were nothing like we thought you’d be. You are a boy when we wanted a girl. You are long haired when we wanted short. You are extremely energetic when we wanted mellow. But we won’t change a single thing about you!! You turned out to be the exact kitty we needed in our little family!

Random Thoughts …

Random Thoughts for the Day:

1.    I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2.   Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

3.   I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.

4.   There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5.   How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6.   Was learning cursive really necessary?

7.   Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5.  I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my  neighborhood.

8.   Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9.   I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.

10.   Bad decisions make good stories.

11.   You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12.   Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray?   I don’t want to have to restart my collection…again.

13.   I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14.   “Do not machine wash or tumble dry” means I will never wash this — ever.

15.   I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What’d you do after I didn’t answer? Drop the phone and run away?

16.   I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

17.   I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

18.   My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day “Dad, what would happen if you ran over a ninja?” How the hell do I respond to that?

19.   I think the freezer deserves a light as well..

20.   I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Bud Lights than Kay.

And that’s how the fight started …

These are terrible, but they cracked me up.

One year, a husband decided to buy his mother-in-law a cemetery plot
as a Christmas gift…
The next year, he didn’t buy her a gift.
When she asked him why, he replied,
“Well, you still haven’t used the gift I bought you last year!”
And that’s how the fight started…


I asked my wife, ‘Where do you want to go for our anniversary?’
It warmed my heart to see her face melt in sweet appreciation.
‘Somewhere I haven’t been in a long time!’ she said.
So I suggested, ‘How about the kitchen?’
And that’s when the fight started…


My wife and I are watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while we were in bed.
I turned to her and said, ‘Do you want to have sex?’
‘No,’ she answered.
I then said, ‘Is that your final answer?’
She didn’t even look at me this time, simply saying ‘Yes.’
So I said, ‘Then I’d like to phone a friend.’
And that’s when the fight started…


I took my wife to a restaurant.
The waiter, for some reason, took my order first|
‘I’ll have the strip steak, medium rare, please.’
He said, ‘Aren’t you worried about the mad cow?’
‘Nah, she can order for herself..’
And that’s when the fight started…


My wife sat down on the couch next to me as I was flipping the channels.
She asked, ‘What’s on TV?’
I said, ‘Dust.’
And then the fight started…


My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.
She said, ‘I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 200 in less than 3 seconds.’
I bought her a bathroom scale..
And then the fight started…


My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion,
and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.
I asked her, ‘Do you know him?’
‘Yes,’ she sighed, he’s my old boyfriend… I understand he took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he
hasn’t been sober since.’
‘My God!’ I said, ‘Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long’
And then the fight started…


I rear-ended a car this morning… So, there we were alongside the road and slowly the other driver got out of his car.
You know how sometimes you just get soooo stressed and little things just seem funny?
Yeah, well I couldn’t believe it… he was a DWARF!!!
He stormed over to my car, looked up at me, and shouted, ‘I AM NOT HAPPY!’
So, I looked down at him and said, ‘Well, then which one are you?’
And then the fight started…


When our lawn mower broke and wouldn’t run, my wife kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed.
But, somehow I always had something else to take care of first, the truck, the car, playing golf| Always something more important to me.
Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point.
When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. I watched
silently for a short time and then went into the house. I was gone only
a minute, and when I came out again I handed her a toothbrush.
I said, ‘When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway.’
The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp

Smelly good!

A friend had this on her blog, and I had to steal it!

I’ve been messing around with some of my photos in an app I downloaded on my iPod. I really love the way this picture turned out.

This is an old retired train in Skagway, Alaska.

While you wait …

I’m still sorting out the details of getting my “Super Awesome Aimee” blog ironed out.

But in the meantime, stay tuned here, or also I’ve been toying around with a very-boring-layout, but super-awesome-material Tumblr blog.

Go check it out …

I know, I know. I’m alive. No worries.

I need a break. I need a change.

I am thinking of closing down this blog. I just want one blog. (I currently write two) I might be a super FAT super chick, but losing weight is not all I am about. I have a lot of other things about me that I love and that I like to blog about.

Now, don’t go thinking that I am giving up on losing weight. Its just, I am a private person. It took a lot for me to even start this blog and invite people into my life. I am not proud of how I HAVEN’T lost weight this last year. And well, some of you have even emailed me that you are disappointed in me. That kills me.

So, don’t stop following me, please. I am working on getting my own domain and then I’ll direct ya’ll over to that blog. I’ll still post about my ups and downs in the weight loss struggle, but it will be more about me and what I REALLY like to talk about. This is something I need to do for me. I hope ya’ll will understand.
