We gots big plans for you, 2011...
Parenting on the Autism spectrum, while trying to survive Murphy's Law one day at a time.
We work out together all the time...
Which brings me to TBML. The Beautiful Miss Lilac.
Lilac was a rescue from a vet hospital. She was caught in a trap, and has 3 1/2 legs. Jaysen was hesitant about having a kitty with 3 legs. He kept thinking she was going to bleed all over the place. I had to explain to him that she was well healed, and assured him there would be no blood. He was okay with it, and came with me to pick her up.
I was trying to think of names for her- I loved the name Isosceles, "Sosi" for short. So I was calling her Sosi. Except... every time I called her Sosi, Jaysen would correct me "Mom...her name is Lilac". Uh...yeah.
Those of you who know me in real life, know I cannot have a cat named Lilac. Lilac? Seriously? No. I name my pets after serial killers. I've had Gacy, Albert, Dahmer, Henry... I cannot have a cat named Lilac. Ugh.
Yet, my son insists.
And he usually wins.
So it's Lilac. Kind of. I made the rule that if he insists on Lilac, we must preface it with "The Beautiful Miss". But I still call her Sosi. Sometimes I get confused and call her Lily. And yes, he still corrects me. Whatever her name is, she is itty-bitty, and the sweetest thing ever!
So here she is...The Beautiful Miss Lilac, Isosceles, Lily-girl.
Is never too tired for some kitty-love!

And to those whom I am missing... I love you dearly.
Behold a caffeinated miracle.
*sigh*For those who are not aware of the Starbucks Christmas Blend...this stuff is magical, yo.
I present you with... oh wait. I need to post Teh Rulz first. *sigh* alright.
1- Brag about the award.
2- Include the name of the blogger who gave you the award and link back to that blogger.
3- Choose a selection of blogs that you find brilliant in honest content.
4- Show their names and links and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with this award.
5- List at least 10 honest things about yourself.
Got it? Let's proceed.
10 honest things about me. Well, I'm going to bite on mom2spirited boy and list 10 random (but honest) things.
1- I became peeved that I couldn't just copy and paste Teh Rulz from mom2spiritedboy's blog. I had to actually type them out.
2- I am a natural born cynic (hey- the world needs us too!). Which also makes me a great "devil's advocate" to bounce stuff off of.
3- When I was about 2 or 3 years old, I was pretending to be a surgeon, so I stuck a pair of tweezers into an electrical outlet. Big *boom*, burned my hands- parents had to call the fire dept and everything.
4- I have a love for books. Like serious love for books. I will probably never own a Kindle because part of the whole reading experience for me, is the feel of the book itself.
5- Although I make up my own funkilated words and end sentences in prepositions, I really am a spelling and grammar junkie. It irritates the hell out of me when I see things like "alot" and "could of". In 6th grade, I won the school spelling bee, beating out the 7th and 8th graders. I went on to the State spelling bee, where I lost out to the word "afoul".
6- I have an extreme fear of public speaking. Extreme. Think social phobia. Which is one reason I lost out on the word "afoul". I took a college class in Sign Language when I was in high school- I skipped the final exam because we had to Sign in front of the class.
7- I tend to get into craptastic relationships because I have the bird with the broken wing syndrome.
8- I originally wanted to be a veterinarian. Somewhere down the road, I switched to wanting to be a speech pathologist. I started college with an OT major, toyed with the idea of switching to Linguistics, and eventually graduated with a Bachelors in Sign Language Studies. I wish I would have taken the chance on linguistics, although my dream job would be as an advocate.
9- If I have a semi-full bladder, I pee when I sneeze. Thanks, Rylan.
10- I busted out my 2 front teeth in high school, trying to show off my diving skills. Smacked my face on the bottom of the swimming pool. Was mortified. They're bonded, but I still can't drink red wine or bite into an apple.
11- I have 6 tattoos and 10 piercings. I married my tattoo artist (Jaysen's father) he got me into doing body piercings. I was a professional piercer for almost 10 years. I wished I could have done it full time, but there's no insurance.
12- I'm adopted, and I'm proud of it. I have the most wonderful parents. Love you Moppi and Peepa! It does irritate me when people ask me who my parents are after I've told them Moppi and Peepa, and they say real slowly "nooo... your real parents", or argue with me that my sister is actually my "step" sister. Um...no...you're just a moron.
13- My favorite number is 13.
So there you go. Sorry they're not as interesting as maybe you were expecting, but I'm really quite boring. Just apparently did a lot of stupid shiz in high school. Haha.
And... I tag...
