It's time again for Flashback Fridays hosted by Scary Mommy.

As I was trying to come up with my blog name, my friend (the pusher) asked me what adjectives I thought described me. The only thing that came to my mind was neurotic. I laughed. Then she laughed.........but there was no disagreement from her. So began the quest to confirm that I am neurotic - which is a little neurotic wouldn't ya say??

First I ask my husband.

Me - "Do you think I'm neurotic?"
Hubby - "Like in a sexual way?"
Me -"What?" hahaha "Not EROTIC, NEUrotic!" hahaha
Hubby - hahaha "What does neurotic mean?"
Me - "A little obsessive, know...its kinda something I just know but I really can't explain."
Hubby - "I don't know."
Me - "Nevermind. Go look it up on"

Later I called my brother.

Bro - "Hello."
Me - "Do you think I'm neurotic?"
Bro - "What does that mean?"
Me - "Go look it up on RIGHT NOW."
Bro - "I'm not home right now."
Me - I kind of growl/grunt.
Bro- "How do you spell that? Diana (the barber and yes she knows me too) is going to look it up."
Me - "N-E-U-R-O-T-I-C."
Bro - "Are you sure? We can't find it."
Me - "Nevermind. Look it up on the computer and call me later."
Bro - "OK, bye."
Me - "Bye." (with a little disgust)

Several hours go by and I call my Mom while I'm sitting at Chili's with the fam.

Mom - "Hello?"
Me - "Do you think I'm neurotic?"
Mom - "I don't know. What does it mean?
Me - "Go look it up on You have to look up neurosis because the definition of neurotic is: a characteristic of neurosis or some stupid definition like that. Are you going to look it up?"
Mom - "Well.."
Me - "What are you doing?"
Mom - "Just watching T.V."
Me - "Lean over, grab your laptop and look it up RIGHT NOW and call me back."
Mom - "OK, bye."
Me - "Bye." (with a little disgust again)

A few minutes go by and my cell phone rings.

Me - "Hey."
Mom - haha "First off I want to say that it says it is a relatively mild personality disorder." haha
Me - "What?"
Mom - "Just keep that in mind.....but yes I think your a little neurotic. And now I think your brother is and maybe even me." haha
Me - haha "That's what I thought. Bro definitely is too. Okay bye." haha
Mom - haha "Bye."

The next day my bro finally calls me back to let me know that "Yes, you are neurotic and I think I am, too." haha I tell him "That's what Mom said." haha

Finally, I received enough confirmation that I am neurotic. And I feel so much better!

Scary Mommy is hosting a new Mr. Linky party today. The rules are simple ~ dig up an old post from when only your 2 RL friends were reading your blog but that didn't matter because you obsessively checked for comments anyway from your humble blog beginnings, grab her button and sign Mr. Linky. Plus, Scary Mommy is giving away a Zoom Photobook Kit and who doesn't love a giveaway!!

Yesterday, my oldest daughter and I were was getting ready to finish her school project and I realized I needed to run up to Office Depot for a few things. I jump in the car and back out of the driveway...........right into my son's Rodeo! Arghh! Don't worry. Nobody was hurt. His car was parked on the curb. Yeah, I know. Stop laughing!

In my defense, it usually is pulled up in the grass across the street. Not actually on the street. I totally took that for granted and was too busy watching the front end of my Durango. Hubby says I have no defense since the other car was parked. Hmph!!

Over there in that grass.

And in case your wondering, the Durango definitely won the smash up derby. The corner of my bumper is scuffed with paint and there are a few scratches. My son's door, on the other hand, is smashed in pretty good.


Yup! I'm a dork!
