To Spam or not to Spam… That is the question.

Good morning!  So, as I sit here, minding my own business this morning, a commercial appears on the television.  It’s for Spam.  Yes, I said “Spam”.  This reminds me of two things. First, I remember that there is a can of the mystery meat hanging out in my pantry.  A can of meat that has made not one but, TWO moves to TWO different houses.  It’s still here.  In fact, it’s been there since June of 2011.  Every once in awhile, I see it or vaguely remember that it’s hanging out in there and I check the expiration date.  Hoping, that at some point, it won’t seem wasteful to throw that perfectly good can of compressed meat into the trash.  Which then brings me to the second thought…

When I was pregnant with Evans, I went on the hunt for Spam.  Call it a craving, call it self loathing but, I wanted it.  No.  Not, “wanted” it.  NEEDED it.  As I stood in front of the grocery store display, and as much as I NEEDED that can of Spam, (Oh, all the choices!!) for whatever reason, I thought of that gelatinous mass that surrounds the miracle, mystery meat.  Long story, short… I opted to leave the aisle rather quickly and proceeded to the packaged sandwich meat and settled on bologna.

Jasper cries, I snap back to reality and leave the Spam there in the pantry, yet again.  One day, Spam.  One day.

Thanks for giving this blog a chance. Well, it would have been cool if you would have tried it when I started it like, FOUR FUCKING YEARS AGO! But, water under the bridge and lets go from here… ;) I am a soon to be, 40 year old mother of three boys, proud wife to one sexy ass Navy Chief, fur-mom to two dogs, five cats, two rats and a black corn snake. I thrive on chaos and therefore I also bottle feed and foster underage kittens for my girlfriend's rescue. I am THE Crazy Cat Lady. I live in Southern California (yes, you can be jealous now) and own my home so… I won't ever be leaving! I am not close to my family mainly because… well, I don't really relate to them. But, I love the fuck out of my friends and will do anything for them. I hope that you will follow this blog. Mainly because it would nice to hear your own experiences or times you relate to something you read on here. But, also be aware that I am NOT an everyday, on schedule blogger. I blog when I have something to share. Always remember that forced words on paper are just as fake as that 'comeback' you have towards someone ten minutes too late. Let it go and wait for the next victim. I am also a staunch supporter of swearing. If I didn't swear, you would know that I was dead. So, take a stroll down memory lane on this blog and follow my thoughts and adventures.
