Could it be a Mushroom?? August 22, 2009

My husband “The Sicilian” does all the yard work…..I hate doing it. I like to point to where I want everything. I then go about my business and come to see the final masterpiece. I love nature and using natural plants in my centerpieces. Especially in the fall when you can grab pinecones, mushrooms, and colored leaves. This year my hubby called me to see this strange mushroom type thingy that looks like……ummmmm…well…..a penis. He dug it up and it seems to have come back in gangs. When he dug them up they had multiple balls (no pun intended).


Do you know what these mushrooms are? How do we get rid of them? It’s like we have a penis farm.
Please Help!!!!!

Midol Saves Husband August 11, 2009

I am always known for being optimistic, including when I turned 40. What puzzles me is I am the baby of the bunch and not one of my so-called friends gave me a heads up of what was to come. In all my years I never had PMS and couldn’t understand what all the ruckus was about. I went to bed last night my usual happy go lucky self and this morning I have no idea who the monster was that awoke. The minute I came to, I felt horrible, I figured it was due to the messed up dream I had about cannibals – ( I had to save my family and some stupid people wouldn’t listen to me so I let them be eaten) hmmm that’s so unlike me- I love saving people….the world…wow weird dream.

While I’m getting ready for work, which I’m now totally pissed that I even have to work, why can’t my husband just go get a couple more jobs so I can sit home and play on Twitter and my blog all day….What evah!!! Anyway….my hair won’t do shit…so what all I need to do is throw it up in a clip, My pants are tight….omg did my food not digest, did I shrink my clothes, did my body absorb water in the shower???????? Why the hell is everything so tight??? Damn my back hurts…must be from the crazy weekend I had, I feel nauseated, must be from the  gallon of ice cream and LB of chocolate I had last night. Why am I getting a headache?? OMG I have been up for an hour…this isn’t going to be a good day.

Of course every stupid idiot driver is out this morning……CAN YOU DO THE SPEED LIMIT!!!! PLEASE – if you want to do 45 mph get in the right lane. Why the hell does every other state need to cut through CT…that’s it!…. we need tolls on the borders!!!!!

Finally get to work. Can you believe these morons want me to serve them??? I don’t care I’m their waitress, don’t they see I DON’T feel good and to top it off they want more coffee!! I keep smiling and growl to myself. Then a customer asks me, “Why do you smoke?” I tell her…well I weigh my options…..jail or cigarettes… I choose cigarettes! This crap goes on for 6 hours. I get through the day with the only person who notices I’m pissy is the other waitress…which she clearly tells me I’m being pissy to her…OMG I am NOT, I’m my same cheery self!!!!!

Finally get to come home and as I’m pulling up, my husband waves to me from the pool. Now by this time I know and I say to myself, “Rachel, you are experiencing a severe case of PMS, watch your tone and what you say…try not to make eye contact…You LOVE your family!!” I go to the pool and sit…my unsuspecting husband smiles and says why don’t you come in?? (Are YOU friggin kidding me?? I just got home from work as you enjoyed the day off and obviously sat your ass by the pool…wtf…I don’t want to play in the pool… I want to go play ostrich and stick my head in the ground, or better yet I want to move away…by myself…ALONE, away from you people!!!) Getting control of my thoughts, I simply say..I’m not feeling too well…..he says ohhhhhhhhhh. (What the hell is that supposed to mean?? OHHH? I wish for once you would get bloated, headaches, cramps, and every thing else that goes along with this mid-life PMS crap) Where is a genie when you need one??? I again simply say..yes I don’t feel well, so I WON’T be cooking, where would you like to go to dinner? Some how he knew that his life depended on taking me out to dinner and he agreed ever so quickly! I need to go find the Midol and take it as directed every 6 hours…maybe I should not push it and take it every 4 hours!!!! 20 minutes goes by…the Midol has kicked in……hubby is taking me out to dinner. Maybe he IS a smart man… I will spare him his life today!

So my friends, I end with this- If this is what I have to look forward to with PMS in my 40’s, I’m not liking it, in fact I hate it….oh forgot to mention, last month I cried for a week…why?? I dunno!!!

Gee I can’t wait for the hot flashes!!!!

What do you do to help with PMS or should I say…what helps you stay out of jail?

Shopping for Spotted Dick August 4, 2009

I’ve been running a household for many years and I do 99.9% of the grocery shopping. I recently went shopping at Big Y and there on the shelf was this…….

spotted dick

I know there will be some people who know what this is, but let me tell you…I almost peed myself. I laughed so hard, I think other shoppers thought I forgot my meds. ” (Plus I was trying to take pics…LMAO) “Spotted Dick” in a can for $4.99… this a bargain?

I know you can get spotted dickalitis in the red district for about $20….so I guess this is a bargain! It also says sponge pudding, it’s only 10 ounces, and comes in a can….No Thanks….I could write another paragraph on that too, but I’m laughing to hard. Anything that sounds like a VD, I try to stay away from…even if it does say pudding.  And WHO was the brainiac that came up with the name for this one? Anyhow- this item is not for me…LMAO!!!!


Bowlher Party in CT August 3, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Rachel Ferrucci @ 12:29 am

Those of us who were not able to go to Blogher 09 still got to be a part of the action by attending a Bowlher party. Here in CT it was a last minute decision, not having enough people to create our own party, Cheryl (@TheBudgeBunch) was brave enough to go along with one of my last minute (as my hubby would say) hair brain schemes. I found out about a party where they were having beer pong, food, and fireworks. Now being married with children, I haven’t “crashed” a party in quite a while. I thought, Cher and I are cool chicks and we’re not THAT old…what the hell, we can play beer pong. Of course the mom came out and I decided to go shopping to make sure there was enough food, so off to Walmart I went (with the gift card they were so kind enough to send). I have to say I had my cart toppled over with everything from burgers, dogs, chicken, buns, soda, and everything else you would need for a party and I couldn’t believe how cheap it was. (see all the bags in the back of my car) Yes that’s a cell in my hand…I was multitasking…getting the dinner order…you didn’t expect me to cook..did you?


The day of the party I was very excited, especially because I was going to meet Cher in person. I met Cher on Twitter and we probably talk everyday. We’re both in CT and we haven’t met yet. The best was we decided to drag our husbands with us (They really do love us). Just like a couple of teenagers, Cher and I talked a few times that day and Yes.. I asked, What are you wearing?…lmao.

Cher and Kevin came to my house, and I got to meet her…YAY!!!!! She totally friggin ROCKS!!!! I love this girl. We are so much alike it’s scary. How our paths haven’t crossed sooner beyond me, but I’m so glad they did now. We had sooooo much fun. We crashed the party yelling…Mommy Bloggers in the house, and after the initial shock, the actual guests of the party were really cool about the whole thing. I got to give out these awesome swag bags and Cher and I talked to everyone there about Autism Speaks. To my surprise there were some who had a family member or friend with Autism and planned on going to the website to donate.
