Bye Bye Bye

BF and I are no longer. I can and will do much much better than someone who finds the need to criticize every move I make. I actually look forward to finding someone who's head is not so far up their butt they don't even see that they are doing something wrong. I cried for about ten minutes last night and thats it. That says something right. Like I totally know he was not nice and I can do better. Sure he had his nice moments but OVER ALL he is not nice. I'm also looking forward to finding someone that does not think they are above everyone else. Over all I don't feel very bad or sad about breaking up with him. I mean he basically broke up with me three weeks ago when he told me he hasn't been happy at all and again used that as another chance to take my so called "flaws" and throw them in my face, like he did every other chance he got. I think the biggest thing that "bugged him about me" was me. He was not happy with anything I did and quiet frankly I am happy that I can finally be myself and not get in trouble with anyone for it. He hates when I post things on my blog about him Ha I wonder how he'll feel about this post thats completely about him and its not even good things being said. Suck on that ex-BF.

Hey Santa

After so many people asking me what I want for Christmas I finally decided I should make a list. So I have spent much time on the internet finding things I would enjoy receiving for Christmas. Here is my grown up Christmas List:

1) Flannel Pajama's (my friend Jed reminded me that they make flannel pj's and thats all I can think about now)
2) David Cook's Album (he is such a babe)
3) Blankets, Blankets, Blankets (once I leave my bosses house I'll be back to living in a refridgerator)
4) Jeans (Every pair I own has holes in them and it is so stinking hard to find jeans that fit right)
5) Any movie with Audrey Hepburne, Bing Crosby, and or Fred Astaire in it
6) New scriptures (well maybe, mine are falling apart but I can't imagine parting with them)
7) Any weird looking vases, picture frames, pictures, ect. for my house (I enjoy odd pieces. Mine and Steph's house is very interesting)
8) A motorized spinning toothbrush thing (cause its fun when my teeth vibrate:)
9) A new make up bag (I have had the same one since I won it on graduation night)
10) A cute glasses case to hold my eye glasses(I just have an ugly black one that is partially broken cause I sat on it)

I think that is a pretty good list. Please note that my favorite colors are purple, pink, yellow, red, and grey but dark grey not light grey, and sometimes orange. Thank you Santa. Love Shauntae

Day ? I lost Count

Seriously how long have I been here? I am stranded on this loud, toys everywhere island. I find myself staring out the window wondering if I am really dreaming or lost, I feel like I have been admitted to the insane hospital. Everything looks so familiar and yet so strange at the same time. Then it snowed yesterday, all day long, and today it is icy cold. I can still see my breath. That seeing your breath crap is supposed to be over by 8 in the morning. This is St. George for crying out loud. What is going on? Just kidding. Things have not been bad at all. Last night BF came over and we had a very enjoyable night watching White Christmas. And this morning Alex made me laugh very hard when this happened: I hear screaming and grunting in frustration and I go to see what is the matter. "What's wrong Alex?" I asked. "It peed on me. Agh, you see, this is why I hate penises." he practically yells and cries this out at the same time. He hadn't made it to the bathroom in time and peed his pants a little bit. Hahaha I have been laughing about it all day long. Seriously though I feel as though I have been here for 11 years. Please make the days move by faster.

Day 2: Too Much Info

I would just like to warn everyone that this post is going to fall into the TMI category. As I may have mentioned I have not been feeling well lately. I have some sort of horrible flu and have had it for the last couple of days. This morning I woke up and it took a turn for the worst. My skin has never been so white and I felt like in my stomache someone was running a marathon and I was getting their leg cramps. If that even makes sense, I mean I have been having the worst stomache cramps all day long. At bosses house the fans in their bathrooms have timers on it, you can choose for it to be on 5, 10, 15 minutes and so forth. I was sitting in the bathroom thinking gee which one will do it 5? 10? 15? Really do you think 15 minutes Shauntae is it really that bad? If you catch my drift. You are all probably thinking why are you writing this and well I just don't know why except I think its funny. Miserable day until after my third nap then I finally began to feel a little better. Who knows what the 4 year old trouble maker Alex was doing while I slept. Tonight I took the nuggets to see Santa and this is the first year Alex has been very serious about seeing the big guy. Alex waited in line for 45 minutes or longer and he was very well behaved the entire time. I thought he must be gettin sick or he is real serious about this Santa business. Turns out he was real serious, he talked to Santa for a good 5 minutes and would have kept going if he was allowed but there was still a line behind us. All in all today was an ok day, seeing Santa made my whole day. Now if only my stomache would feel better. And remember I did warn.

Heroic Tales of Nannyhood: Day 1

Well bosses have just left for their almost two week long vacay. Super lame but I am feeling optimistic. Although I am not feeling great, (a little stomache ache and light headedness probably left over from the stomache flu I've had the past couple of days) I still intend to start the kids on a schedule that suits me best and I believe will suit them well. Dinner will be at 6:30 every night and bed time at 8:30 then up at 7:20 in the morning and off to school by ten to 8. Then the rest of the day me and Alex will do as we please. No going to bed at 11 or later, not while I'm in charge. If only my headache would go away I would be in a better mood. Due to light headedness I have hit my head twice today I am sure I will have bruises. Hey bosses aren't here I can go have a nap. Maybe I'll throw a party or throw Alex of a balcony, I can do whatever I want, Woot Woot!

Roses and Wood

Last night, Steph's new boy toy named Justin came over to watch the Christmas devotional with us. We knew he would be bringing us a load of wood for our wood burning stove that is our only source of heat for our home but he also surprised us with some flowers. He brought Stephanie a rose AND he brought me one. Probably just trying to score points with the best friend but I certainly did not mind the buttering me up. And flowers were just what I needed after the lame monday I had. I just think he is a real cutie pie and I think Stephanie should kiss him sometime soon. I mean after the flowers and the fires he starts for us (I always give BF a kiss when he starts a fire for us, even if he doesn't want me to) and all the nice things he says to her I think he deserves a little kiss. Bosses are going on a trip. They leave tomorrow and don't get back til the 21st. How will I survive? I am not sure that I will. But with little breaks here and there and visits from BF and Steph I think I can make it through. I hope I can make it through. It makes me sick to my stomache just thinking about it. Or maybe I am getting some serious illness that will land me in the hospital just in time so my bosses won't leave or someone else will have to watch the kids and that will make me lose 20 pounds. I can only hope.

Worst Monday Ever

This has been the worst monday of the year and its only half over. I got a speeding ticket and was twenty minutes late for pickin gup Alex from preschool because of it. He was the slowesr cop ever and I hate when they drop your speed by 5 and act like they just gave you a gift and did a huge favor. I know that they don't have to drop it and that it is nice of them to do that but an even better thing to do would be to not write me a ticket at all. I know I am just being targeted because I'm a thug. I swear I was not speeding. And can I just say that I am so tired of those who think it is their place to tell everyone else what they are doing wrong. This weekend was real great. I got to have a lot of Christmas fun and I got to see a lot of family that I miss so much. We had our family Christmas party and Cody got teased relentlessly by my uncles and I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard. Its so nice to be around people who love me for me and they don't care if I do my hair or if I don't eat all my vegetables or how I drive or any stupid little things like that. Its so nice to be around that. I wish I was more often. I feel really picked on today. The life of a thug is hard. I wish everyone was nicer to everyone else. Thats what I want for Christmas. And if someone wanted to pay my speeding ticket that would be a very good Christmas gift.

Pray for our Bathroom

I should be ironing about two hundred pounds of clothes right now. I hate ironing. I love to procrastinate until bosses have no clothes left to wear. I used to take it to the dry cleaners and let them iron it all but then bosses figured out what I was doing and said I had to stop. Bummer. Last night BF and I went to dinner and after that he let me shower in his shower. My bathroom is torn to shreds. It all started with some leaking water on the floor and a wall in the shower caving in. We called our landlord and he came to fix it. First they tore one and a half walls off to fix the plumbing. With no walls in our bathroom, it has been a game of hmm where should I shower tonight? Who will buy me dinner and let me shower at their house? Its a wonder we still have friends. The tearing down of walls and the fixing of the plumbing took one day and gave us the false hope that it would be done quickly and soon we could have our bathroom again. Nope then came the dry wallers to fix the walls, they have taken a week and its still not finished yet. And then came the discovery of termites. So today the terminators and the dry waller will be back and hopefully get it done. Then tomorrow the men who will install the shower will be here and with any luck at all it will be finished and we can shower at our own house. I try to avoid going home as much as I can because our one and only bathroom being unuseable brings tears and fits of giggles and the chanting of "Unreal. Something new everyday. Why am I crying and laughing at the same time? Where did our mirror go?" I hate our bathroom. BF's mom is teaching me how to knit. Last night I sat down to practice some and I got the first step completed and could not remember the rest to save my life. I was so frustrated I tried to poke my eyes out with the knitting needles good thing Steph was around or todays headlines would say something to the effect of me being the modern day Ediopus. I can't remember how to spell that name but you get the idea. I started my Christmas shopping this morning and it brought such joy to me. I am love/hating today. Well I just hate that I have to do some ironing. BOO.

Mixed Nuts and Santa Baby

Thanksgiving was awesome. I spent it with BF's family and they are all so nice and fun. I loved the food and the company. I only had one smallish break down about not being with my own family and don't worry it wasn't in front of anyone. Friday BF had to work so I had a nice relaxing day with some working out(got to get rid of some of that thanksgiving binge) and CSI which i watched until I got scared. Then I switched it over to What Not to Wear which I watched until I convinced myself that Clinton is not gay and totally in love with me. At that point I had to switch to HGTV. And I ate sloppy joes all day. I LOVE SLOPPY JOES, so delicious. Saturday BF and I watched Mixed Nuts, one of my favorite holiday movies, makes me giggle every time. I am so glad that its almost time for Christmas and so shocked at how fast time flies at the same time. Today I switched my ringtone over to santa baby. I have been an awful good girl this year.
