Fly On The Wall- Jan 2015

Time for a new episode of LMSP! Little Miss Sassy Pants and it is part of "Fly On The Wall".
Staying at my moms I get to see LMSP on Mondays and Tuesdays sometimes Wednesday as well. She is full of attitude, questions and far too grown for her own good but I enjoy spending time with her, well, when she's in a good mood that is.

Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 14 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.

Buzz around, see what you think, then click on these links for a peek into some other homes:                          Baking In A Tornado                          Spatulas on Parade                          Follow me home                          Menopausal Mother                        Stacy Sews and Schools                                   Dinosaur Superhero Mommy                    Juicebox Confession                              Battered Hope          Eileen’s Perpetually Busy                                  Go Mama O                       Someone Else’s Genius                            The Sadder But Wiser Girl                             Just A Little Nutty                                       The Momisodes

DIL = daughter-in-law
LMSP = little miss sassy pants

My DIL posted on FB:
DIL and son: singing "I believe I can Fly!!"
LMSP: No you can't!
DIL and son: "I believe I can touch the skyyy!"
LMSP: Noooo you can't!
DIL and son: "I think about it every night and day! Spread my wings and fly away!!"

LMSP comes in with my mom, "Hey Dawn guess what!"
Me: what?
LMSP: I went with Gran-ma and she didn't tell the man at Wheel of Fortune that my sissy is 11 years old. ugh
Me: Wheel of Fortune?
Mom: I keep telling her it's Cella Ford I don't know why she keeps saying that.
Me: I am seriously laughing at this point! this cracked me up

LMSP: So Dawn, what do you want to talk about? How about Halloween or Christmas. What do you want to be? 
Me: I want to be young and energetic. 
LMSP: NO what do you want to dress up as silly?
My mom: I'll be Snow White and you can be my lamb.
Me: You mean Bo Peep?
My mom: LOL yes, No Snow White
Me: Then she'd be your dwarf. Maybe Grumpy.
LMSP: throws her head back and laughs, "No DUMPY, that would be funny"
Me: You mean Dopey?
LMSP: eye rolls... "same thing"
Our breakfast conversations, sounds like we all need more sleep.

"I'm laying on my blanket at the beach" Then she picks up her stuff walks into the kitchen and lays down. Singing "I'm done at the beach, I'm done at the beach, now I'm gonna sleep sleep sleep"
LMSP is cracking me up.
Then she carried all her stuff back into the living room, laid out her towel and sang "I'm at the beach, I'm gonna stay at the beach, ah my sand melted! ARGH
My mom: "how'd your sand melt?"
LMSP "it's raining and its the worst time EVER!!! I'm never going back!"
It's been raining at our house for 4 days straight and we're all a little batty at this point.
Mom and I were laughing, LMSP is such a drama queen.
above is my LMSP and Lily. She loves Lily and Lily is an attention hog so it works great. The other two kitties stand hidden, they don't like her, she jumps around and makes a lot of noise, but hey she's 4.

LMSP: guys guys hey! what do you want to talk about?
She only ask us this about 100 times a day!

My mom and I are sitting at the stop light coming out of the dreaded wally world. I was just staring out the window. My mom says "look at all those "A Kerns" I know the squirrels at my house would love those"
I was stunned, look at WHAT? oh wait, you mean...acorns?!
My mom looks at me like I've lost my mind and said "yesss that's what I said"
I'm like, "ugh, no you said A KERN and I don't know what the heck that is and WHEN did you start saying it that way"
She refused to answer... has she always said this? I have no idea.

Other things my mom says that makes me go batty:
how she says it = what it is
A KERN = acorn
new mourn yah = pneumonia 
AL Man = almond
Sal Man = salmond
yes tur dee = yesterday
pitcher = picture or pitcher (both said the same way)
piller = pillow
winder = window

I guess I grew up with it and it was normal but having lived away and having home schooled my boys, I became a stickler for them to learn to speak correctly. I know we all live in different places and accents affect things, but this woman has never been anywhere and I swear her vernacular has changed over the years.

Use Your Words - Jan 2015

You may be looking for Pearl and William's saga continued but I'm taking a break this month. Doing something a little different but never fear, they will return next month. A celebration of 1 year and a special surprise. I know, you think you have it all figured out, but remember I like to keep you on your toes!

Today’s post is "Use Your Words" a writing challenge. This is how it works: bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to create into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now...

Links to the other “Use Your Words” posts:                                 Baking In A Tornado                        Stacy Sews and Schools                          Spatulas on Parade                      The Bergham’s Life Chronicles                     Confessions of a part-time working mom                                Juicebox Confession                             Someone Else’s Genius                                            The Momisodes                                   Battered Hope               Eileen’s Perpetually Busy                        Evil Joy Speaks

Your words are: Unassuming  ~ Perspective ~ Bemused ~ Aberration
They were submitted by:    

I'm going to do something different for the first time in a year. Yep, no Pearl and William. I'm saving a big special for February :)

Unassuming: means modest, not arrogant, pleasant or polite.
That is what I want, an unassuming man. Someone who is pleasant, polite and NOT arrogant. Is there such a thing?

Perspective: a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something.
My aunt said to me: why are you smiling?
My response was why not? I'm alive, well and have a new future to look forward to. WHY would I not smile? It is all about perspective I guess. I see a bright future and she sees my bleak past. I prefer my perspective over hers any day.

Bemused: puzzled, confused, perplexed, baffled, mystified
My life has bemused me in the last several months, confused me, puzzled me, baffled me but then I realized that somethings are not meant for us to understand and I read a quote a few days ago that said "there are two days you can't change. Yesterday and tomorrow so live for today" this is a great philosophy in order to get over a bemused life.

Aberration: a departure of what is normal, usual or expected, typically one that is unwelcome. Example: "they described the outbreak of violence in the area as an aberration"

OH MAN! My life became an aberration in September of 2014, it bemused me, changed me from unassuming to one of siding on caution and then I changed my perspective on the whole situation.

Stay tuned next month for the return of Pearl and William...
