The Real Housewife of Claycord – Every Thursday at 2pm on Claycord.com
I want to thank you all for your wonderful tips about getting my husband and kids to help out with household chores! Some of them worked, but it’s still somewhat of a struggle. It all takes time though. Again, thank you.
I also want to add a little note to say how much I love writing for Claycord.com. In my mind, this is the best news site around, and it’s definitely the only place where we are allowed to vent our happyness and frustration 24/7. Thank you to the Mayor for keeping such a wonderful community website, which does so much good for everybody around us. Although Claycord does have its share of controversy, that’s part of the appeal. A few years ago I emailed the Mayor about a story I disagreed with, because it hit me on a personal level. He emailed me back and said he was sorry about the story, but he only reported on it, and didn’t make it up. It was then I realized that I was the one who needed to step back, take a deep breath and move on. The Mayor was just the reporter, and although I questioned him putting a relatives name on the blog, my relative was the one who did something idiotic to get his name in the news.
This week, I want to talk about working out….
I need to exercise, badly! It’s not that I need to lose a bunch of weight, I just need to get in shape and not feel exhausted after a full day of work (at the mall, with the kids, at home, etc.).
I’ve tried getting a gym membership, but as most of us know, that rarely ends up how we originally expected. I just don’t have the time, money, dedication or energy to go to the gym. The gym also seems like a place where most 20-something girls go to find a man. Although I don’t mind looking at a little eye candy once in a while, I’m not in the market for a new man (yet, hehe, love you honey).
I’ve tried walking at night, but it seems like something always comes up with the kids and before I know it, it’s dark out.
What do you do to get in shape? Do you have any tips or tricks you can pass on to not only me, but every other person out there who needs more energy?
A few things I saw around Claycord this week:
- My mail came at 9:15pm this week! Why even bother delivering it? Just wait until the next day please.
- I was walking back to my car after working my job at the mall this week and noticed a woman out with a large caged dog in the lower level parking lot by JC Penny. The cage was big. Being a dog lover, I walked over to see what she was doing (but I didn’t talk to her right away). As I walked by, she said “pitbull puppies for sale”. She was selling pitbull puppies in the parking lot of the freaking mall for $500 each. These poor things were so tiny and adorable. Does anybody really do this anymore, and would you buy a dog from a person in a parking lot for $500? It was kind of sad to see.
The Real Housewife of Claycord Housetip of the Week:
- Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It’s a lot cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It’s also a great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn’t like when you tried it in your hair.
That’s it for this week.
I hope you all have a wonderful week, see you next Thursday at 2pm!
It’s time for me to go make a pie! What kind of pie, you ask? I’ll tell you!
This week, it’s Oatmeal Pie! Click here for the recipe.
