3 Chicks and a Rooster

We may seem like one ordinary family, but we are one unique chicken coop!

Denial, it’s what keeps us going! July 19, 2011

Filed under: Momma Chick,rant,rooster — Momma Chick @ 3:26 pm

Even after being married for 11 years that dreaded green-eyed monster comes to shine.

Rooster doesn’t ogle at the opposite sex, unless it is clothing options for me. By the way, if you are wearing something low cut with great shoes you can bet he is imagining me in that same outfit.

Time and again we may be watching a movie and I will be all, “Such and such is HOT”.  Which rooster will reply, with “Yeah she is”.

Doesn’t he know the rule of thumb?

Deny, deny, deny, deny!

It’s like you only being allowed to pick on your sibling.

The proper answer is, “I never noticed her before.”

Then I can be all, “Awe isn’t my husband just the best?”

Okay I do know this answer isn’t true, and that Rooster has noticed her before. I mean what warm-blooded male hasn’t seen her half naked body on the side of a bus promoting her next movie?

The fact is women LOVE denial! We live and breathe denial!

We ask if we look fat in this, and you say no… DENIAL

We ask if eating that Big Mac, while watching Biggest Loser is a good idea, and you say sure… DENIAL again!

The lesson for this ramble is:

The green-eyed monster wouldn’t rear its ugly head if DENIAL ruled our lives!

 

No Habla Espanol… July 7, 2011

Filed under: Momma Chick,pop culture,rant,rooster — Momma Chick @ 10:07 am

I love reading Magazines.

I love People, Cosmo, and all the smut out there!

I must love them so much that people think I need magazines like these…

*This English inquiring mind would like to know… Is there a translation for Sex Tips?*

1. I don’t pay for them

2. Not sure if this a Punk’d moment in the form of magazines

3. I have been getting them for months

4. Am happy I can pass them to the side of the fam that can read them

5. Would REALLY love to be able to read them

Today I received a new one…

The positive on this one is at least I can read it.

I am really interested in reading about the article on Latinos and Marriage. Rooster is 1/2 Latino, so does that mean what is said here has 1/2 a chance of being a factor into ours?

So if I am being Magazine Punk’d can you please send me Us Weekly maybe? I think I am safe with that one right?

 

Opposites Attract May 25, 2011

Filed under: family,Momma Chick,rooster — Momma Chick @ 8:36 am

When I hear about single friends and how they are attracted to someone because they have many similar interests I wonder how that really works.

I am not knocking it, but I will tell you the truth,

I fell for Rooster for these reasons…

1. HOTNESS… That boy at the age of 19 was one athletic, fine specimen of a man. (Don’t worry he is like a good bottle of wine, who only gets better with age)

2. Confidence… He is one cocky guy who knows his stuff don’t stink.

3. Intelligence… It irritates me sometimes the brains this man has and  how naturally he comes by it.

I didn’t fall for him for our similarities, because when you look we don’t have many.

He is a night owl, whereas I could be asleep by 9 on any night.

He loves to go out on the town, whereas I would rather cuddle on the couch with glass of wine.

He can do something over and over until he wants to get it right, whereas I will give up and maybe go back after a month.

He can watch endless hours of any sport, including golf (SNORE FEST), whereas I can spend endless hours reading a good book.

The few similarities we do have fill in the holes, but it’s our differences that make us the strong couple we are.

You don’t need to be twins in comparisons for a great relationship to be just that… GREAT!

 

Wordless Wednesday: We are normal! May 18, 2011

As long as it helps me sleep at night right?😉

 

Broken car, family drama, and a death in the family

Filed under: family,Momma Chick,rant — Momma Chick @ 8:05 am

When things get tough in my every day life I turn into an Ostrich and hide in the sand, because when it rains it pours.

Broken Car

Our transmission went kaput, so we turned into a one car coop.

75% of my day was spent in a car, doing drop off, pick up, drop off, and pick up.

The car is finally fixed, which means more time for Momma Chick to write and blog.

Family Drama

Why is it when there is money involved personalities change?

If it isn’t your money than leave it alone, enough said.

Death in the family

Death is hard, especially when the person still had life to live.

I just hope he is without his internal struggle and at peace.

We love you Uncle Tom! You are thought of and missed every day!

I don’t want to be a Negative Nancy, so I am keeping this short and tomorrow will be moving on🙂

My Chicky Review

Fashionista Chick is plagued with allergies.

We are always at the doctor for sinus infections due to her allergies invading her sinus cavities.

We always want to nip those bad boys in the bud, so I decided to try Claritin when there was a flare up.

Claritin paired with her daily nose spray helped keep her allergy flare ups manageable.

The syrup is easy to go down, since it is a yummy grape flavor.

Your child not like grape? Then try the fruit flavor.

Kids should not have to live with daily allergies and Claritin helps in giving a great tasting syrup that will help curb these symptoms.

This product along with other Claritin products are available at your local drug store.

I give this product 2 wings up!

Aloha Friday: Happy Earth Day! April 22, 2011

It is Aloha Friday once again!

This means today is a day for taking it easy, therefore I will just ask one simple question.

Click the picture to learn more.


My question is in honor of Earth Day:

What do you do on a daily basis to help out Mother Earth?

My answer:

I already do the basics, like turn off lights when leaving a room, recycling what can be recycled,  watching water consumption, etc.
There is so much more I want to do if I had the means to do it. I would love an energy efficient car, plant a fruit/vegetable garden, use as much solar energy as I can.

Happy Aloha Friday to you all!
