I Hate Waking Up

Are you a morning person? A Night Person?

Confused as to  what you are?

Sign me up for option 3. 


I hate mornings yet can’ sleep in.

I love nights, but most of the time crash by midnight.

I think I’m a tweener. Caught in-between one extreme or the other.  Then again, seems to be the way I roll on most things.

I hate mornings. Yet I like them once I’m awake. Maybe it is the process of waking up when all I want to do is sleep. Especially if I was having a good dream to get back to. Not that I would remember what it was if you asked, I just know I liked it.

Yep, I hate getting up. Not just due to some funky alarm telling me to get up either. Although it is quiet irritating when I use it. However, most of the time my darn internal clock says, rise and shine it is light outside. Sure I can sometimes drift back off for a wee bit. But I finally figured out the problem…..My Brain.

Yep, it’s my brains fault. (double-check that I typed brain and not blaming some random guy name Brian)….

You see, once my brain engages, it doesn’t turn off. Thinking of all the junk I need to do, should have done, and better do. Sometimes I can quiet it back down if I do a few of the things that are keeping it going, but if someone starts talking to me…forget it. Then it is going a mile a minute.

I’ve already discussed how I can’t take naps. So now, I am stuck with a brain that will be engaged until midnight.

I’ve been up for a few hours already and want a nap. And it’s only 8:30.

Maybe if I stop typing and put my laptop to the side I can close my eyes for a 1/2 hour?

Or maybe I’ll lie awake realizing I haven’t accomplished anything yet and I have 50 million things to do. Like check blog stats or answer blog comments or feed the dogs or call back…. well, you get the point…

I hate you brain….

Who Wants a Nap?

Yesterday I mentioned how it was in the 100s here. Yep… HOT

The problem with the heat is it zaps you of all energy. As long as you are inside all is good. But 2 minutes outside and you are ready for a nap.

I wish I could nap. It is one pleasure that I really never get. But if I could, I would walk outside first  because I’m telling you. That heat will drain you faster than a Blond Bombshell with a Rich Man’s Wallet.

So I thought I’d share some Nappy Nap pictures to remind us all how great it would be if we could take a nap right now…

I know I for one would LOVE one right now!


Like Father Like Son

Kids are great, they can sleep anywhere

Great hiding place too!

(reminds me of people when I worked at Home Depot that crawled up in the racking to sleep)

Railroad tracks??! This guy is just an idiot – LOL

This one just made me smile

This one is just a reminder not to nap drunk (you know who you are)

Now who hasn’t taken a quick 5 minute nap in the john?

This one is just wrong…Plain wrong…

(But I bet you laughed!)


Ok, nap time is over…let’s all get back to work!

The ABCs of Me ~~ Or More Than You Wanted to Know

Each night as I try to wind down from my day, I start surfing the blogs I follow. And now that I found the little link that WordPress has, I find it so much easier than getting 50 million emails. Yes, 50 million! No exaggeration. I have “liked” way too many of you! But I’m stubborn and plan to find more to add. I’ll just give up having a life and spend 24/7 reading what you all write. And this silly link has made it that much easier for me to do this.

But I digress once more.

Sharon over at showard76 was playing this game with other bloggers that had several questions based off the alphabet. I thought what a fun idea.

I jumped up and down screaming “I want to play! I want to play!” Then I decided to hijack the game and play. Feel free to steal, I mean borrow it as well.

Now, what kind of game would it be if I didn’t put my own Tammy the Sarcastic Wit on it? I wouldn’t want to disappoint any of you.

So away we go…..

A is for age: A) None of your business. How’s that for an A?  LOL, just kidding. I’m 46 physically, emotionally & intellectually. However, there is still a 20-year-old wondering how we got here and when our body turned on us. Especially the knees. Then again, they never really liked us.

B is for breakfast today: Hmm, do I lie and say something healthy? Or do I admit I reheated my left over quesadilla? But it was gooooooood.

C is for currently craving: Coke. No not the drug silly. The nectar of the gods. Coca Cola. 😀

D is for dinner tonight: Haven’t thought that far out. My gosh, you just asked me about breakfast. I haven’t even thought of my second microwaved meal of the day yet!

E is for favorite type of exercise: Pushing other people’s buttons. Some of you have some great resistance!

F is for an irrational fear: Hands down my fear of moths / butterflies Read this: Butterflies are Evil!

G is for gross food: PEAS!!!!!!!!! OMG they suck!  Read this: Peas, My Mom’s Favorite Torture Tool

H is for hometown: Tough one for me. I moved so much as a kid. Best I can give you is I’m a Southern California Girl – Orange County – And definitely not the OC type. Think way other side of those TV show tracks.  LOL

I is for something important: Laughter. Did you think I was going to say family like everyone else?

Hell, trust me; we all need laughter to deal with our families. 

J is for current favorite jam: Music Jam or Toast Jam? Hmm, which way do I go with this one?  I could sing Peanut Butter Jelly Time and kill both but….. Grape Jelly is my answer.

K is for kids: Is that a question? No kids. I like sending them home too much. Hard to do if they lived with you. But I do have 2 furry kids. Both 14 – Bingo & Tia.

L is for current location: Orient Express. Oh wait, Location not Locomotion. My office at work.

M is for the most recent way you spent money: Same way I spend 99% of my money. Bills, Bills, Bills and not the Destiny’s Child song either. The cool answer would be something like on the Chippendale’s Dancer or buying a new teak panel for the Yacht. But alas, just bills.

N is for something you need: Money! Didn’t you see the 99% that goes to bills? Ok, forget that answer. I need sleep! I want one good 12 hour no wakey even to go potty type of sleep. There you go, how about if I dream of money?

O is for occupation: Ice Cream Lady!!! Haven’t you read any of the Pink Truck stories?

P is for pet peeve: While I’m not fond of butt crack or pants down as you saw in my previous posts, my true pet peeve is lying. Yep, hate when people lie to me especially over stupid things. If you will lie about the small things, odd are you will lie about the big things. I hate liars.  🙁

Q is for a quote: Shakespeare? Movies? Some of these “”””” oh I know. My favorite quote. Duhhh.   Ok, here is one I love…  “Just because you know something, doesn’t mean you understand it”    It so fits people who think they know it all yet understand nothing. 

R is for random fact about you: Umm, isn’t pretty much everything above? Just saying. Hell, I’ll even toss a few more in down below.

S is for favorite healthy snack: Healthy?  LOLLLLLL Surely you jest.

T is for favorite treat: My dogs would say Pup-eroni’s. Me? I don’t like them that much.

U is for something that makes you unique: Everything. No one like me. Some would shout THANK GOD!  I’d say my ability to laugh in bad situations. (hence my blog title)

V is for favorite vegetable: You already know it sure the hell aint peas! (And don’t tell me aint aint a word cuz aint aint in the dictionary ~~ It’s my blog and I’ll use it if I want to) The answer is…I hate veggies. But if I must say…I like cucumbers. And pickles. Are pickles still a veggie after they pickle? Hmmmm

W is for today’s workout: This long ass blog answer. I’m sweating over here!

X is for X-rays you’ve had: Probably everything at one point. I’m surprised I don’t light up the night. I’m old remember A?

Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Surviving. I’m hoping to do the same today.   😀

 Z is for your time zone: Depends on the time of year. Arizona is funny that way. Technically Mountain Standard year round, yet it really is Pacific Standard through the summer. Arizona is so odd.


Did you make it all the way to Z with me? WAKE UPPPPPPPPPPPPP!

You know you laughed at least 17 out of 26 times. And that is 17 more laughs than you had prior to starting.

Let’s all have some fun and do this. Most of you are always looking for something to blog about. So here you go.

So, let’s all participate on the Alphabet Survey by blogging about your answers. (I’m not sure if you are to use the same questions, but hey, it’s your post. Use these or create your own)

Let me know once you’ve done it and I’ll definitely come visit. I even promise to read all 26 answers. Yep, pinky swear!

Thanks for having fun with me!  (or, I hope you had fun – sure would hate to lose any followers ~~ then I’d really get no sleep)

Ah To Be A Sleeping Animal

Ok, those horses made ma laugh, so here are a few other cute sleeping critters….

Maybe he had a full tummy from eating the mouse

Nature’s Hammock

Damn, that was some party!

I Love when Mom let’s us camp out in the living room

We all sleep better with our favorite stuffed animal

I’ll regret hibernating in this spot, I just know it

How did I get in this mess? Oh well, for now we sleep

Tomorrow, I have a great story to tell. You will definitely want to check it out. And I promise it has real words and a real story, not some trick I pull on you.


One from my past that I love telling as it was that crazy.

The Suspense is Over…

Yesterday I asked “How do you keep a blog reader in suspense?”


I guess I better have something good at the end of that rainbow. Yet here I sit with nothing. Yep, nada, ziltch, zero….

Maybe I worked too hard yesterday. It was a long one. Plus having to use my brain too much.

Then to make matters worse, I had to get up early today. The cable guy is coming over to do some “free” upgrade thingy on Direct TV Dish and one of my TVs. Yahoo, I’m finally going to have HD on at least one TV.

But in typical fashion, I took the 8am to noon slot so I could be at work by 2pm. Being that we live in the middle of no where, usually we luck out and get to be first on most plans of attack. I guess not today. I wake up early so I can shower.  I so wanted to close my eyes and go back to sleep in my chair. But noooo, I fight it.

Yet my dogs taunt me by sleeping on their pillows in front of me. I’m so jealous!

garfield sleeping pillow

But here I sit, 3 hours later and still no cable guy. I wonder if he knows he has exactly 50 minutes to get his happy butt here? The only thing in his favor is when he goes under the house, it isn’t going to be 95 degrees today.

Ok, I’m just rambling. I wont bore you any more. This post is making me sleepier. Maybe if I close my eyes he will show up. That is exactly what would happen.

Ok, I’ll probably be back later with a better post. But no promises. I don’t want to keep putting you in suspense.   😀

Oh, before I go. Here is a cute picture I found while looking for some sleeping ones. Thought you might get a little laugh.

Dang I Could Use a Nap

Ever have one of those days where you just wish you were a cat or a dog and could spend the whole day with no cares, no worries, no work, no nothing and just sleep?

Every time I stop moving today my eyelids seems to get heavy and I’m ready for a nap.You know the kind, where you yawn and water tears in the corners of your eyes.

I never get to take naps. And the rare times I get to try, I lay there wide awake.

Personally I think it is the guilt I start to feel from all the things I should be doing. After 20 minutes of trying, I get up tired and now ticked off I couldn’t sleep.  LOL

Oh well, I guess I can sleep tonight.

Then people say, oh you can go to bed early. I’m all aboard. However, the reality is, I’ll start doing something and next thing I know, it will be 1am and I’ll be “Dang, I guess that nap would have been nice.”

Oh well. I’ll just day dream that I took a nap. Now it’s too late, I have to go to work. Just need to make sure I don’t fall asleep in the ice cream. I’m pretty sure it would turn off the customers.

If one of you are up to it, will you take a nap for me? And while you’re at it, might as well go to the bathroom for me too as I’m sure I might need that before you lay down for your/my nap.
