Isn't this special

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a Mary Frickin Sunshine type who plans to bend you over and shove my ray of positivity right up your...butt, I mean but, or do I? Where was I? Oh yes, today I was at the beach listening to the waves & seabirds & letting the sunshine warm my skin & trying to let the raging bitch I've been for the past few days wash away with high tide. I think it worked, I'd tell you to ask my family but I haven't fed them just yet so they may have a skewed perspective.
Now about that family I mentioned...Since this blog is a new neighborhood for me, I've decided to do something I don't usually do. Ahem, no...I ALWAYS do that! I'm going to share a little. If you're a glutton for punishment, you peeked at the short but sweet bio I'm eternally revamping so you know I'm a karate instructor. In karate terms, I'm a 3rd kyu brown belt bad ass mammajamma. In English, I'm a belt below black belt & busting my round booty to earn myself that coveted black belt. I teach the 7-14 year old beginner class, which, on it's worst days, is like nailing jello to a tree and on it's best days it's one of the most fulfilling things I've ever done. Kind of like being a mom! Speaking of Mom, I have two fruitloops of my loins; a 14 year old son & a 10 year old daughter, see above reference to nailing Jello to a tree. Or maybe putting socks on a chicken?
Well, the 10 minutes I've spent checking my shop, email, facebook and blogspot are over and there's a hungry tribe I need to feed before the teenager & I head off to karate. Stay tuned for more warm moments of inappropriate touching...In the meantime, what are you making/having/hunting/gathering/buying for dinner?

  1. Little Mary Sunshine! You kill me my friend and though you are Amy to me you're still Magnificent.I look forward with great anticipation to reading your blog.
    I had pasta fagole if that's how you spell it. What the hell kind of an Italian am I that I can't spell fagole correctly. The g is pronounced like a j. I killed the beans myself. Now they're killing me. Ok I'll go away.

  2. Hey Ames!! Wish I was on the beach with you! I made Chicken Fried chicken patties tonight.. garlic cauliflower, corn, salad. yum. Glad you're going to blog with us again! Congrats on the brown belt.. you've been working hard since I last enjoyed your karate stories! Enjoy some more beach time for me..

  3. Super brown hoping to go black soon - makes sense to me.
    Takeaways tonight - which is unusual. Perhaps tomorrow I will try to force the children to eat something green...

  4. Paul-Do I need to revoke your Italian stallion card for misspelling fagioli? I'll do it!

    Jean-That sounds delish and I don't even eat meat! I'm coming to YOUR house for dinner tonight!

    Pat-There's been more takeaway food here lately than I like. Cursed life being so insane!
    Tallon eats pretty much anything, but Trelynn is the picky one, I got her to eat broccoli by giving her really cool chopsticks. Worked like a charm :-)
