BYOC: Oh, Joy

It's Friday. Yay. Really. I just looooove weekends. Especially this one. William took a four day weekend.

Okay, let's get on with it.

1. Do you have any Mother’s Day traditions?  

I talk to my mother on the phone. William and Patrick do not, in any way, shape or form acknowledge this "holiday".  What else is new?

Next question.

 2. Do you take a daily vitamin? Why or why not?

A multi. Calcium and magnesium for my bones and to calm my frakking leg cramps. I take D, 5000 IU a day, as prescribed by my physician and a few others, on and off, depending on budget. 

  3. Do you wear perfume every day? If yes, what kind?

I use scented body wash, lotions and sometimes body spray daily. I wear perfume when I am going out or having company. I have to hoard what little I have, so I use it carefully.

  4. When you walk or run or work out outside – what do you take with you?

My cell phone and earbuds for music, a couple of tissues and lip balm. A bottle of water. I can't find an arm bad that fits my fatass arms so I have to wear a hand crocheted sash with a crocheted bucket bag at the end that holds my water bottle and a couple of pockets for my phone and lip balm. I look like an utter fucking fool, but it gets the job done and affords my fellow travelers a nice little laugh. To complete the mental picture for you, I tuck the tissues in between my bra and the tank I wear tucked up in my bra band to prevent band chafing and to cover my bra and straps. 

Charming, huh?

5. Repeat question. Summarize your week.

Bite me. (Not directed to anyone, personally. ;))


  1. Erika, I've been Ireading your blog forever, but haven't commented until now.

    Something's been driving me crazy, and I have to ask. Why do you have to do so much laundry? lol Every time I read you're either about to put a load in, or have just done one.
    I'm now praying I'm not being insensitive in case someone in your household has an incontinence problem.

    I love your blog, and thank you for being so real.

  2. No problem. Or incontinence problems. lol We just don't have tons of clothes and towels so laundry needs to be done frequently to keep us going. :)


Talk to me! :D I love comments, enjoy discussion and debate. I wear my big girl panties and welcome constructive criticism. I do not accept anonymous comments. Not because I can't take the heat.
