I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

that's a lot of televisions, knife lady! Now I'm picturing you snapping your fingers low like a Shark while carrying a switchblade or butterfly knife low in the other hand.

I think they are called Chocolate Thunders. And for some reason that sounds really bad right now. The skinny twerp that sits beside me eats like three of them a day.

Whats up with you and the horror movies..and the knives and the machete dreams? Ive got my eye on you lady...

I can't find my slippers either, and my son was the last person to make me laugh also.
Very interesting!
Have a great week-end.

clay ~ hi sweetie!! Yeah, he's adorable, look at his picture on my picture blog. Good to see you babe!

dzer ~ lol, that's pretty accurate. Got in the habit of carrying them for protection when I hitch hiked, and I feel comfortable with them. Plus, seriously, aren't there times you just wish you had a knife on you??

anne ~ lol, someone needs to keep an eye on me, may as well be you. :)

samuru999 ~ mom's, yes? That's who we are. Hope you're weekend is wonderful.

sass ~ yeah, the guy can make me absolutely...whatever. :)

Kathi.......to qoute Rodney Dangerfield...."when I die, I'm going to donate my body to science fiction" haha. I'm thinking I might have to do this one on my blog. maybe. I love what we learn about each other.

11:24 AM  
Blogger Anne said...

I lied! I just asked the skinny twerp and he said it was a Chocolate Avalanche. I knew chocolate thunder sounded too much like a dirty movie!

11:51 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

so how was that movie, the hills have eyes? I want to see it, we are going to go and watch waste deep tonight. I carry at least one knife on me at all times. Way to early to get up, oh but wait you kiss Mark and walk him to his car, I remember that. ok lets make this short, i knew alot of these things about you!!!!



12:09 PM  
Blogger kathi said...

johnnie ~ lol, science fiction may be more accurate for me too. :)

anne ~ babe, you didn't lie, you were just wrong. I forgive ya.

abi ~ you are so my girl! We saw "The Hills Have Eyes" at the theater, loved it. It's hard to watch at some parts, but it's a great take on the movie. It's still a decent film on video.
And yeah, I always walk Mark out (you're such a sweetie).

Anonymous Katy said...

Dzer really made me laugh with the "West Side Story" image!
Truth is it would be easier for Kathi to protect herself by hitting someone with a T.V. than trying to find her purse, then trying to find the knife that is rolling around in the bottom of what ever purse she is using on that day.

1:37 PM  
Anonymous Katy said...

I see you tried to explain the number of T.V.s in your house. How come you don't have any in the bathrooms what about the garage, the front porch, back porch.

1:51 PM  
Blogger kathi said...

katy ~ LOL, like I could pick up a t.v. (well, I do move them around a lot, but never mind about that!). True about my addiction to purses, but I always know where they are. One is on my key ring (that was my grandpa's, do you remember it?) and my mother of pearl handled one is always in the outside pocket. :) *sticking tongue out at ya, lol.

And c'mon, Katy...doesn't Andrew have a tv in his room? Oh, plus Mark deserves one in the kitchen for when he's cooking!!

2:55 PM  
Anonymous Katy said...

You would think that Mark would rate a color T.V. with cable for ALL the excellent cooking he does for you! Andrew does have a T.V. in his room but he only just got one in his room 2 yrs ago. How many T.V.s have you replaced in your kids rooms? Now be honest at least 2 each? I remember something about the new T.V.s needed sleep timers.

3:40 PM  
Blogger kathi said...

The kitchen t.v. is color, but no cable. :) Can't run cable through the attic to reach the kitchen because of Casey's room. Yeah, I wish we had cable on the kitchen t.v.
AND t.v.'s do get old and wear out Katy!!
Better watch yourself, woman, I'll start telling your secrets...as soon as I make some up! LOL, Love YOU!!

Well thats what it is going to take for me to sound the least bit exciting. My life is so boring Go ahead give it your best shot!
Didn't the kitchen t.v. used to be b/w?

Blogger joey♥ said...

i love learning more about my blogger friends like you :). sorry i haven't been around. i'm moving into a new apartment in ny soon and kind of busy. i have a sister who is 18 months younger than me too. i also have two other sisters too though. i don't really like pink either. it's overrated and kind of a feminine cliche.

10:28 PM  
Blogger kathi said...

katy ~ you are such a goofball. Your life is not boring. You're busy all the time and you do great things with your family. Hell, girl, you just got back from a mini vacation.
And yeah, it was b/w a long....time ago. All t.v.s were, :). Seriously, probably 5, 6 years ago maybe.

10:53 PM  
Blogger kathi said...

joey ~ LOL, I just left your blog!! Babe, I've got to tell you, you are so open and completely honest with your feelings on your blog. You are about as real as they come.

Do you really carry knives on you? Might explain those machete nightmares....

Blogger ~Deb said...

All I can picture is Kathi coming out of her house at ""5am"" with her ""antique gun"" screaming,

"HEY! You kids! Git' off ma' lawn!!!"

Just a visual. Sorry.

10:30 AM  
Blogger kathi said...

fizzle ~ yeah, I actually do carry two. One, an old one that my granpa always carried is on my keychain. Another I always carry in a pocket on my bag that is easy to reach. Comes from carrying them for protection when I hitched. I feel safe with them, and I'm comfortable using them.

deb ~ don't be silly, I just yell and scare the crap outta them. Always works. :)

johnnie ~ way to pay me back, huh? LOL

heart ~ of course, what's mine is yours. :) AND have you bought the new one that came out last week? I've got it to read, but I keep putting it off like a special reward, lol.

1:38 PM  
Blogger Rose said...

You carry two knives? I don't know how to use them, I would probably hurt myself...

11:19 PM  
Blogger kathi said...

rose ~ I sound so rough, don't I? LOL, I'm not. But I did use to hitch hike around the country when I was in my late teens, early 20's and I got in the habit of carrying them for protection, and I won't lie and say that I didn't have to use them a few times, because I did.
I've always kept them on me, just for protection. And pocket knives always come in handy for opening things, cutting threads...lot's of things.

12:00 AM  
Blogger Heart Of Darkness said...

Kathi, I wish I had - but on The Far Side, books don't come out as quickly as they do in the US... The last one I read was the twelfth... how far behind am I?

1:00 AM  
Blogger kathi said...

heart ~ hhhmmmmm, are you sure you don't mean the 11th, cause the 12th is the one that just came out last Tuesday. If it was the 12th, don't tell me anything about it!! And how come you just have a thing for Morrelli and not Ranger? Now, hon, that's just not fair!

"22. Current hate? Sound of the phone ringing or someone knocking on the door." Hey that doesn't count you never like those sounds. :-(
