I'm just not Supermom anymore....

I think I’m just worn out with blogging. I’ve been around a long time and I think I have given all the advice that I know. You firs...

I am liking YouTube a bit more. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

This afternoon I noticed that my account is active again. You can watch my videos again. There is still no "clip picture" when you go to my account. BUT you can click on them and they play.

I am not sure if it was a glitch or an ACCIDENT on YouTube's part. I haven't gotten any emails or responses in the help forum. ~shrug~ IT would be nice to get an APOLOGY, flowers or candy! SOMETHING YOUTUBE!! You did start my day off pretty badly!

This is where SUPERMOM says so many bad words that your ears hurt and you GASP in shock.

Yes, I am a mild mannered woman.  I don't use cuss words that much.  UNTIL YOUTUBE PISSED ME OFF.  I cannot get a PERSON on the phone.  I TRIED!  I sent an email to someone. NOTHING.  I even posted a question in their stupid help forums!  NOTHING.

Hell, I'd rather be directed to INDIA at this point so I can swear at an unsuspecting person about losing my FAMILY FRIENDLY VIDEOS THAT I FILMED MYSELF!  SERIOUSLY!!!

I can find naked women on YOUTUBE but be damned it I do a WEEK IN REVIEW!!!!

I guess showing happy family videos are TOOO much for you to take!  I apologize.  Next time, IF THERE IS A NEXT TIME, I promise to naughty it up a bit.

YOUTUBE you SUCK!  I better get my damn account back like TODAY or or I will totally slam you on my blog UNTIL it gets back up!  That isn't a threat!  IT IS A PROMISE!!!  I may even recruit other people to slam you tooooo!!!!!!!!

I need support from you guys!!!! YouTube can kiss my mommy blogging ass.

I use YouTube to do my week in review and for videos for review.  All of my videos have been filmed by ME!!

This morning I get online to work on a review and I go to YOUTUBE to get the video that I TOOK yesterday to add to the review and this is what message I recieved!

I am not joking!!!! 

My account has been permanently disabled?!??!??!  I went to my week in reviews and other videos and they are GONE!!!!!!!  I am so furious right now!!  F U R I O U S ! ! !

It's that time again.

To retire my razor.  To just enjoy the fuzziness that nature intended!

This doesn't mean I go all winter without shaving.  Just means I shave my legs about once a month or a special occasion.

I know I am not the only one who does this!  Superdad doesn't mind so it's all good.

Ask Supermom!

I'm ready!  Ask away!

My ears are BLEEDING!!

Okay, no they aren't!  BUT HORMONAL TEENAGER IS SICK AT HOME and currently watching Grease 2 after watching GREASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG, it's awful!!!

Today is a baking day so at the moment I have three loaves baking.  The house smells yummy if I do say so myself.

I have held true to my word.  Making each day seem like a vacation at the beach.  I have been pretty laid back.  Only doing things that had to get done today.  Not tomorrow.  Not this week.  BUT ONLY TODAY!

I had to wash the laundry and such.  I had to get the trash together for trash day tomorrow.  I had to make bread.  That's it so far.  Oh, I had to go through the totes in the basement to get Baby M some warmer clothes.  We returned from a HOT vacation to FALL!!!!  I kept all of Lil O's because I just knew we'd have another girl.  Sooo, I grabbed everything out and it's washing.  Baby M will be all set.  Now to get Lil O, H and B ready for Fall/Winter.  I thought I would hit JC Penney's on Saturday for some bargain shopping.

That's all I got.

Hot Fries and Mountain Dew

Those crispy spicy sticks of pure bliss washed down with a cold Mountain Dew.  Ahhhh!  Every vacation should require a bag of hot fries from a gas station!  It should be in the travel guide!

I guess you have noticed that I am back from a very relaxing beach vacation.  We packed up the minivan and left town for seven wonderful nights in a house right on the beach.  It was our home away from home.  A place to rest our sun kissed skin.  A place to enjoy our meals together.  Our place to just BE.

Folly Beach, South Carolina

A blog to come later.  Possibly tomorrow.

Baby M and The Puffs

One afternoon Baby M goes through a kitchen cabinet. She walks into the living room and crawls up on the couch.  She opens the goodies from the kitchen and...

Baby M and The Puffs

Busted! You caught me!

I am on vacation. I've been sunning myself on a beach since Sunday. I had pictures scheduled to post so you wouldn't miss me.

I was wrong. Thanks for all the emails and such.

I will post a nice blog when I get home.

I have to powder my nose.

Excuse me, I'm not leaving the house until I powder my nose.

Baby M

Baby M

I will not be driving for a few days or a week or two. As long as I can get away with it.

Yesterday I was ALMOST in a car accident.  One that would have been bad had I not been paying attention.  I had just left my house to head to the high school to collect the teenager.  I was on a side road that is curvy.  I was going into a curve only to meet an 18 wheeler in some of MY LANE.  My jaw drops to the floor as I see this.  To the right of me a bank, meaning dirt and grass.  I get over just knowing I am going to swipe all the way down the bank.  As the truck continues to pass me it continues to get CLOSER!  OMG!  By this time tears are running down my face.

I'm really not sure how come we didn't hit each other.  No real damage to the minivan either.

So, yesterday I was really sensitive.  Thinking of those stupid "what if's?"

I keep playing it over in my mind.  I am so glad that we were being watched over.


Week in Review

Let's do the Monster Mash-Up!

The Oriental Trading Company asked Supermom to review their new Monster Mash-Up! It's HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Click this sentence to see Supermom and The Kids do a dance for you!

Be sure to comment and tell me when you have done your Monster Mash-Up so I can see it!!!!!!!

No need to put me on a milk carton!

I promise I didn't run off and join the circus no matter what you may have heard!!!!  I didn't change my name to ImInHiding PleaseDont TellMyKids WhereToFindMe.

It's just been busy here or I have been lazy.  Depends on how you look at it I suppose.

First I'd like to thank every single one of you that take time out of your daily schedule to come read The Adventures of Supermom.  I hope that I make you laugh a little and feel better about yourself because you are thinking, "Thank GOD I am not that woman!"  SO, thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you and thank you again.

Supermom has a crush.

I was talking to hormonal teen last night about crushes.  I told her it was completely normal to have a crush on someone.  It's okay to be attracted to someone.  Really it is.

She was all freaking out about it because she has a boyfriend.  ~eyeroll~

I think it's important for our kids to know it's okay to have a crush.  It's okay to be attracted to someone.  It's nothing to be embarrassed about.

Even adults have crushes!

Now you know.

But honey, you're not that old!!!

Superdad and his brother went to see The Boss in concert.  Can I even call him The Boss since I have never seen him in concert?

Superdad called to tell me that THEY were the youngest people there!  My BIL called it the AARP Tour!

HA HA!!!!!

So now I have this image of a bunch of 70 year olds with ponytails in their Bruce Springsteen t-shirts!

PS.  It's POLL time again!  I added a new feature to my blog to take away some of the clutter.  It's the option to "Click here to read whole post".  That way if I have a super long blog post it won't take up the WHOLE page.  I rather likes the option but I got some hate mail today about it.  Not hate mail in a bad way just MICHELLE WTH did you do!?!  She suggested I put it to the vote!  So go VOTE!!  Like it?  Hate it?

The Adventures of Supermom makes the Mountain Express this week!

MySpace is all about "collecting friends". More coffee please.

I've got something on my mind and I want to share it and I'd love opinions.

Last night H's dad called here upset because of H's choice of friends on MySpace.  I didn't see it as a problem.  I tried to explain how social networks work and that "collecting" friends is perfectly okay.  Just because there is a "goth" kid on there doesn't mean anything.  Turned out he's a friend of a friend at school and she doesn't even talk to him.  She added him because he make her friend count higher!  SEE!!!  She said it herself.

Good Morning!

I thought I would type up a GOOD SUNDAY MORNING to my fans!!!! Include a few pictures from the bread I made yesterday!


Homemade Bread

I HEART Lizzi Miller.

Who is Lizzi Miller???

I came across this picture this morning while surfing the WWW.

To read more about this picture you can just click this sentence.

I saw this picture and shouted for JOY!!!!! She is just STUNNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am just in total awe of this! Thank you Lizzi Miller for being "REAL" and for Glamour for letting you! YOU ROCK LIZZI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What could be better?

Baby Kiss

YOU'RE NOT THE FATHER!!! ~said in my best Maury Povich voice~

I'd like to thank my family and friends for making me laugh the past couple of days! You're the best!

After my post yesterday Superdad did the sweetest thing!!! He brought home peanut butter cups! I sat down and had SIX all at one time! YUMMMMY!!

Who said you cannot have your peanut butter cups and eat them too?

I have been meaning to blog about something going on in my kitchen the past month but I keep putting in on the back burner so to speak. After reading Ratio I started making my own bread. Yummy delicious bread. We have been eating lots of homemade bread in different variations and cornbread.

I only use 5 ingredients to make this yummy bread. That's just a basic starter. From there the possibilities are endless. Roast some garlic and knead it in before cooking. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh herbs before baking. Make smaller loaves and add cinnamon and brown sugar for a sweet treat. The list goes on and on.

The basic 5 ingredients are flour, salt, yeast, water and honey. That's it. I throw it all in my Kitchenaid stand mixer and put it on low. Walk away for a few minutes. Then throw some plastic wrap on it and leave it alone for an hour. Then bake for about 50 minutes. Your done. The end. If you are interested in the exact amount of the ingredients just let me know!

So, we haven't had to buy bread. It's awesome and YUMMY!!!!!

Before baking:

Fresh Bread

Drizzled with olive oil. Sprinkled with garlic, salt and basil.

Finding my way back to you babe...

It's no lie that marriage takes work. Lots of it! It's no lie that when you have kids you tend to put your husband in line, towards the back. Oh hell, he is last in line. You know it's true.

Life here is busy for me. There are four kids in this house. Four screaming kids. Moaning kids. Crying kids. Running kids. Kids that get on your nerves at times. Not to mention the one kid that is constantly attached to my boob!

I never have alone time with Superdad. He works Monday through Friday. He has Superdad time to himself.

I work on the computer for blogs and reviews. I have a couple TV shows I watch. I cook. I clean. I just do what has to be done.

We sort of meet in the middle. I think it's the middle. Could be towards the end.

It doesn't matter.

I love Superdad with my whole heart and he loves me. That's something we always know to be true. Yes, we can argue. Yes, we can be so busy we only share a few sentences one day.

It doesn't matter though because I know he'll always be my husband. The one I turn to when times are bad. The one I call to share good news. The one I get angry with because I know he will understand. He's the one that I will love unconditionally forever.

I thank God every day that I met him. I really do. I knew when I first met him that I would be with him for the rest of my life. I knew it.

I guess Superdad is good at leaving me a trail of his love for me. Hmmm, I just had a peanut butter cup trail going through my mind! There's an idea for you Superdad.

I do have a point. I was going through older posts and came across one that made me tear up.

Sitting In For (and a tribute to) Supermom

Supermom has requested that I (Superdad?) fulfill my promise to be a guest blogger. In light of her condition, I could hardly refuse. And as she tends to recover from everything so quickly, I figured it would only be temporary.
I can certainly attest to the fact that she really is worthy of the title. Supermom, even in pain, does not like to sit still. And in the time we have been together she's suffered her fair share: two (more) children; twice as many kidney stones; and various other issues to deal with, none of which she's ever really complained about. She has a certain strength of character. (You just know that if she got shot she'd sterilize the wound with whiskey, take a swig and dig the slug out with the paring knife...not because she's tough or trying to prove anything mind you but because it's just what has to be done.) But she's also very kind, patient and loyal. I have learned a great deal (especially about parenting) from her. I feel very humbled when she refers to me in this blog as Superdad because I can't begin to see myself in the same way that I see her (LuckyDad, certainly.) I've got a long way to go to be able to live up to such a high standard. But I married into the title so I'll take it.

I love you Superdad!

Another Hypothetical about Facebook.

I have blogged about this before, so just click this sentence to read the things you should know before joining any social network.

I have to add another to that list.

You should probably sit down for this. I will be leaving out this persons real name. Not to protect him in any way, I just think he's a moron and I hate to admit that I had fond memories of him.

HYPOTHETICALLY speaking that is!

Okay, here goes.

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES friend an old boyfriend on Facebook. This includes your "first real love."


Got it??????????????

No matter what fond memories you may have of this person from 16+ years ago!!!!!!!!! Befriending them on your social network is going to ruin that fond memory for FOREVER!!!!!


Let's say you actually make plans to have coffee with this person. You are a secure person and think it would be cool to catch up. No biggie.

So, let's say you HYPOTHETICALLY set up a sitter and call your friend on Facebook to confirm coffee.

Let's say HYPOTHETICALLY he answers the phone DRUNK from a bar. Seriously! He's out with the boys and they are having a grand time. You think nothing about it since he is SINGLE and such. Now, you begin to know why he's single. HYPOTHETICALLY that is.

You are laughing about things from 16+ years ago. Then he starts making no sense whatsoever! I am correcting him over things he is saying.

You are pretty freaked out by this point. His comical drinking phone conversation took a very sour turn.

It ended up with him saying something so SHOCKING that I will not reveal it on the WWW because it's soooo asinine and ridiculous!

You end the phone conversation like this, "I am sorry we found each other on Facebook. I am sorry I called you. I don't want to ever see or talk to you again." Then you hangup in utter shock and disbelief.

That's not a hypothetical BTW! I never want to talk or see this person again! E.V.E.R.

So, now you know. I will say it again!


I am Supermom! Hear me roar. Just stop standing on my cape!

Yes, I am sleep deprived. I may even be a bit grouchy. Day three of waking up on the couch isn't on my TOP TEN things to do EVER!

I have been in the kitchen all
morningday! My great aunt K turned 81 yesterday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I made her homemade lasagna, I just have to cook it at this point. I made a yummy salad. I even made homemade bread with roasted garlic rolled in the middle for dinner. I saved the best for last. Well, I wouldn't go that far because you haven't had my lasagna.

I made a birthday cake just for her. Along with some sunflowers that Lil O picked out for her!!!

I made the Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Peanut Butter Icing that I dreamed up while sick!!!!

This time I took some creamy peanut butter and used it to decorate the cake with as well. I even made cupcakes for the kids and cupcakes for Aunt K to take home and enjoy.

The table is set. I even have the cloth napkins out! Lord help me. I am exhausted!

Never forget that I am Supermom. I will post pictures later if she will let me take any.

Shhhhhh. Baby M is sick and finally sleeping.

Sick Sleeping Baby

Baby M has been sick since Thursday afternoon. High Fever!!! Even throwing up on me.

I've had TWO sleepless night and days for that matter. I have been watching lots of stupid TV!

Okay, I am going to go snuggle on the couch with my sleeping baby.

Supermom is on CNN.com

REALLY I AM!!!!!!!

You know how I blogged about going TOTALLY LIAM on the stranger that slapped the child?? I linked the story from CNN.

Supermom on CNN.com

I noticed some hits coming from CNN this morning. A blogger knows EXACTLY who is looking at their blog, remember this.

This is what I found.

Supermom on CNN.com

Okay, so technically I am not exactly on CNN. It made me smile though.

The Supermom Project.

This is where Lil O doesn't answer to O because that's not her name. Baby M updates her Facebook status while Supermom drinks cold coffee.

This is where Supermom would go all LIAM on someone.

Have you heard about the crazy story about the man slapping the child at Wal-Mart?!??!???!?!?!?

Stranger allegedly slaps crying child in store. <~~~click to read.

All I can say is that I would go TOTALLY LIAM on him. Referring to the movie Taken. Where Liam was a total bad ass fighting the bad guys. That's my new saying!!


Things that Lil O loves:

O loves her bike ride

O loves her bike ride

Asheville, North Carolina

We are Natives to Asheville, North Carolina. Which is RARE to hear when you visit Asheville.

Superdad started showing me older pictures from our wonderful town. This started the "Asheville wall."

I had prints made and framed them yesterday.

I wanted to put the collection on the wall behind the TV.

Asheville, North Carolina

But Superdad didn't want the distraction behind the TV. We will just have a huge BLANK wall there.

We have the start to a wonderful collection.

Asheville, North Carolina

So, I started the "Asheville wall" on a nice blank wall in the dining room area. Which is a better idea because you can walk up to examine the pictures close up.

Asheville, North Carolina

Plenty of room to add to our collection!!!!!

Yes, I've said these things!

Sunday it was raining and B2's bike ride was canceled.

B2~ Whine. Moan. Groan. "I want to go on a bike ride!!!!"

Supermom~ "Well, take it up with God. I cannot control the weather."


Supermom~ "H, remember the great time you had at the beach with youth camp few months ago?"

H~ Beams as she remembers. "Yes."

Supermom~ "Well, it won't be like that." It being Folly Beach.

Should I stay or should I go?

We have the chance to use a beach house on Folly Beach free of charge.

If you remember we have four children. Two that are in school. Hormonal teenager of course wants to go BUT will not miss school. So, I told her she could stay with her dad, her grandmother or my sister.

Same with B2. They are only allowed to miss 5 days a semester. This is bumming me out. I am excited and want to go.

Would you totally take my Supermom Card and Cape away if I didn't take my two older kids with me???? Opinions here!!!!!

Never a dull moment when company is here.

Yesterday Mrs F came over for a play date!!! If you area a follower of her blog then you know she ran off up North for the WHOLE freaking summer! Leaving me to roll around in self pity. JOKING!! I did miss her though.

She cracks me up. I can be totally honest with her and I know she will be totally honest with me. That's what friends are FOR!! HA HA!!

Yesterday she had me rolling. We had great conversations about kids, sex, swinging and condoms. Let me elaborate a bit more.

Friday me and the girls, Renee and Anna, were talking about sex and condoms came up. RENEE said, "Don't use lambskin." To which my jaw dropped to the floor!!!!! I am allergic to latex sooooo you see why my jaw dropped. "WHAT DO YOU MEAN I CAN GET PREGNANT WITH LAMBSKIN?!??!??!" Since I have sworn off more children!!!! Really FOUR is enough. I can see myself being like 38 years old being told I am pregnant and thinking, "THOSE DAMN LAMBSKIN CONDOMS!!!" We were laughing!!

Anyway, they totally psyched me out!!! I was very afraid to have sex ever gain. Really it was messing with my mind.

So I brought it up to Mrs F to hear her words of wisdom. Which turned into a swinging conversation. "So, you've been looking this up!!!!" she asks. Uh huh. There was a story pop up on my AOL homepage about a new book. This woman is married to a man and has a girlfriend. Something like that! NOW, I cannot find the name of the book!! I am not making it up!! I know I saw it!!!!!!

So, Mrs F must be thinking I am totally crazy!!! To which I may be. I don't know. You tell me.

Needless to say we had a nice visit! I cannot wait for her to come over again.

** UPDATE **

I knew I wasn't going crazy. I found the book!!!! OPEN
