happy birthday america... and all that jazz

First off... I want to say a big THANK YOU for everyone who gave me support yesterday! You don't know how much you kiddies mean to me. Its a surprising little support network we've got here!

An update, Mr. man has backed out of this weekend. I'm really not sure what his deal is. He's worried about his cat, the oil leak in his car, etc, etc. I literally called him out and asked simply
"It seems you really don't want to spend any time with me. Are you wanting me to break up with you? Cause you're sure acting like it."
He says NO! But he also says that he doesn't know what he wants me to do, or whats going on with him. I guess he's stressed, confused, and doesn't know what to do with his emotions (or how to properly deal with stress). Whatevs.

So there you have it. I'm done with worrying. We talked for over an hour, and I feel good about it. I said everything I was wanting to say to him, and more. I'm leaving it all in his court now.

I'm DETERMINED to have fun this weekend. I'm still going to the lake and camping with some good times friends. He says he may come out tomorrow (if he gets his car fixed). I'm not going to hold my breath, I'm just going to focus on the positive and let him deal with his shit. I've tried to help, and I'm really getting nowhere. I'll just leave him be, and basically be there for him when he figures his shit out. Until he tells me how to help him, I can't do much.

So everyone... Have a great weekend! Cause that's what I'm gonna do!!

Cheers! Have some beers! Have some hotdogs and hamburgers! Eat so much potato salad if comes out your ears! Enjoy the fireworks! Do what makes you happy! Cause we all deserve to be happy!!

Now I have to get back to inflating this inner tube. I had to take a break cause I was about to pass out, but the River Rat sure as shit ain't gonna inflate itself!! Word!!

Now please enjoy some 4th of July inspired eCards.

Have a few drinks and a little extra fun for me! I'll be working (or on call...which is fancy speak for we won't pay you a full day every day, but we'll still fuck up your holiday)

Seriously McGrid between you, me and Overboards BF's we should just say F-It and run amuck. What is wrong with the men in our lives? Do they have giant tampons shoved up their asses? I'm soooo over it.

Happy Fourth to you! Good for you for doing your own thing! More power to you!

I hope you have fun! I'll be dragging my kids down the Jersey Shore (not THAT jersey shore) on Sunday with the five fucking other million people are there. In all fairness, I do have free passes for the entire amusement park, but I'm just not looking forward to being cramped between teenagers with amazing bodies (I always want to kill them! lol), bitchy kids who's parents don't watch them and the fat guys who walk the boardwalk with no shirt on. Fucking ew. Oh, and in the 105 degree heat. Happy 4th.

You go, girl. Enjoy your weekend, have your fun and don't let a boy ruin any excuse to drink beer and go camping!!!

Any dude who breaks dates, stops hanging out with you, becomes distant, etc, and then says that he doesn't want to break up with you is a liar. You're a great woman, you deserve better than that guy. Dump him, move on, and you'll find a guy who truly appreciates and wants you.

You GO girl! Have a blast, you deserve it!

Also, I love your blog! So I nominated you for a sunshine blog award on my blog! Check it out at:

Ugh, men. He's acting like a tool and is SO not worth your time (just like you told me!!!) Don't let him ruin your weekend- rock out with your (proverbial) cock out. Happy 4th!!!

Sucks about Mr. Boy. My exgirlfriend did the exact same thing. Became distant and stopped wanting to hang around and talk as much. I asked her several times if she wanted to break up or downgrade to just friends and she insisted that she was really into our relationship and didn't want it to end.

I finally quit putting any effort into her and she quickly disappeared forever. I don't know why she couldn't just admit that she wasn't into me anymore. It would have been a lot easier. I never string people along like that when I'm not into them anymore.

I'm glad you told him what you thought. Its always easier to deal with things like this when you've said your piece.
