Things I said No to today

Jonathon wanted to watch Wrestlemania on TV.

Do you think I said no to the wrestle show?

Oh no!

I didn’t say NO to that fine form of entertainment…

not until I learned it cost $57 to watch on pay per view.

I told him he was out of his mind.

(In a nice tone of course)

$57?!?!?!?! Jimminy Crickets!

Wrestlemania_26_Wallaper_by_belltowerphantom Kaishon wants a Siberian Husky.

Every day he asks for one.

Every.single.day.

Today I said no.

Just like I do every other day.

I hope he gets it now… : )

siberian husky I said NO to the taxes.

I need to do them.

It is practically April 15.

Who has time?

I mean I have SO many blogs to read

much paperwork to do for my job.

Gary told me I need to say yes to these soon

or we will get in trouble….taxes I said no to my diet.

Hey, it was 2:00 PM

That means I did good for like 8 hours…

Every flippin’ Monday I start a new diet.

And then I fail after lunch….ice cream cone 003 I said NO to making supper.

I told everyone to scrounge around and find something delicious.

After they told me they could not find

anything delicious

(or even edible)

I gave in and made some bacon.

bacon

No toast… It had a little mold issue.

PS Above is an EXACT picture of what I usually look like

when I am cooking dinner.

Except I am a tiny bit skinnier and tanner : )

and I have a wee bit more makeup on

and a few hair extensions.

High Heels too baby!

Glam all the way around here.

How pretty am I?true story tuesday final[3]

Did you say no to anything today?

Here is to hoping

Tuesday is a ‘Yes!’ day for us all!

Sometimes you just gotta say NO!

I said no to exercising today... I seemed to have twisted my ankle yesterday and it's really hurting.

I still haven't done my taxes either! Yikes.

Sarah said...

Love this. You are so stinkin' hilarious! And I had NO idea we looked so much alike! Or cooked dinner wearing the same exact outfit!!

Kelly said...

My taxes will be postmarked April 15 and not a day earlier ... despite the fact I had them done a month ago. No need to rush into that mess!

What day you've had!

Kristina P. said...

I should have said no to the 20 chocolate covered macadamia nuts I ate.

Linds said...

haha, this post cracked me up! I said no to pulling knives out of the dish washer, eating the dogs food, and eating the leaves on the playground.

Mighty M said...

I said no to my son trying to throw things at me - OUCH! I only wish he would LISTEN. This is something I hope he grows out of soon.

I did NOT say no to a huge plate of dinner though. Tummy is full.

I definitely look that good too. And heels are a must in the kitchen. :)

Julia Spencer said...

I said no to my diet today too! I said it when I had some coffee cake!

Grandma J said...

Don't like wrestling...but don't tell Kaishon I said that. Get him a dog...but be careful about getting a dog that sheds ALOT...Husky's shed a lot. Anything mixed with poodle doesn't shed.

I haven't done my taxes either. Come to think of it, I don't think I did last years yet. I love punishment because the year before I was sitting in the IRS office getting audited for 2003.

Pistachio ice cream? One of my favorites!!

bluecottonmemory said...

Oh, you have to get with the code - when he's asking for a pet, he's really telling you, "I love you." For further code, see my post: http://bluecottonmemory.wordpress.com/2009/07/16/the-freshness-after-the-storm/

Once you break the code, they'll stop asking for the pets because they really do not want to be caught verbalizing such sweet things - hence, the code - LOL

Busy Bee Suz said...

You are so cute and funny.
I think I said NO to...um, nothing today. Because NOBODY asked for anything.
except for a prom dress. But I was going to say yes anyway.

Oh, I think I actually said NO to excercising...is that good enough?
Maybe it is good enough for you...but not to my booty.

Alicia said...

LOL, this post was awesome!! You have such a light, funny way of writing! I love it!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

I have those days where everything is no as well. But then again, I love those days when my answer is yes!

You mean to tell me you're not going to break and give Kaishon a puppy?

christy rose said...

oh my you have made me laugh so hard!! Sometimes, you do just need to say "no!" :)

Erin said...

OMG I am LMAO off!!
I email a friend of mine every Monday and say, well it's 10 am and I haven't cheated on my diet YET! and continue on until I get to about 2 or 3pm and I say GUESS WHAT? and in really small print "I cheated"

And your bread...having a mold issue! HAHAHAHA That's comedy!

alessandra said...

LOL!
How did you get my photo? ;)

Mental P Mama said...

LOL. Now all I want is a pistachio ice cream cone! Thanks....

He Who Laughs Last Didn't Get It said...

I absolutely love your blog...your sense of story telling with pictures is awesome...again, I'm hooked!

Love Letters To China said...

I think the word no just rolls off my tongue without even knowing what I'm saying no to. Does that make any sense? I definitely don't blame you for saying no to that yummy ice cream cone. Definitely a weakness of mine. Taxes.... don't even get me started. ;-)

BTW, you look marvelous... I too wear high heels when I cook!

Sonya said...

You are so funny!! I love it..I have said no..a really big No infact. The school system and the teachers here think it's their business to butt into our private lives and I put my foot down very loudly and said No..Im really viewed as the problem american now..I cant tell you how much I love that.

Baloney said...

I just said YES to picking Jacob up early from school.
PreK has its advantages. :)

Brooke said...

back in the day a PPV use to be around $30 or so. $60 is outragous!!

Josh, Steph, The Boys and Maddie said...

I just love you! I love your sense of humor! I love how creative you are! Blogging comes so naturally to you. You are too funny! :D

Amber said...

Love your blog! Your writing is hilarious and your pictures are great.

MrsMama said...

Cute post! I too said "no" to my diet. And "no" to my boy, who asked for a white bunny for Easter. Like that's going to happen! :)

Aging Mommy said...

Oh my, now let me think - when my daughter goes for a nap will I say no to a large waffle cone of Ben and Jerry's? I think not, I will be saying YES!!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for your lovely comments on my post. I love your blog - your photos are fabulous and your son is gorgeous.

photowannabe said...

Seems with we all deal with the same NO issues. Sorry to say I said no to my diet and no to getting the tax stuff ready to do and no to getting off the computer and doing the dishes.
Love the picture of the ice cream cone. Of course I always say NO to that...NOT....

hezro said...

this post is so funny! thanks for stopping by my blog. i've been trying to go around and look at people's post and i was gathering this week might be unusual since it seemed like every other person was saying, "this is my first time submitting a photo". I guess black & white really speaks to people! :)

Pen and View said...

oh geez, this was a good lol moment. Very much my life.
I said "no" to getting out of my pj's.

Alison said...

Awesome post! I just loved this!

Foursons said...

Oh my gosh, I am cracking up! Where did you find that picture of me? Had I realized I was revealing so much collar bone I would have covered up a little bit. But you girl- you are smokin' in your tan and heels. :D

midwest mama said...

With the bacon for dinner, everything's good. You are hysterical! And it's all so true.

Skeller said...

hehehe. this whole post cracked me up! good luck catching up on your blogs, errr paperwork, so you can say yes to your taxes. blech! might need another scoop of ice cream for motivation ...???

jennykate77 said...

You wear high heels while you're cooking?! ME TOO! I knew we were kindred spirits. :)

It is so sad that we must say no to things like PPV that costs 57 dollars and Siberian huskies. Isaiah would like a baby sister. I've said no to that one a time or two lately. I also had to say no to all the large (50 dollar) Lego sets at Wal-Mart like everyday. He doesn't get that toys in that price bracket are for "special occasions"...I think everyday is a special occasion for Isaiah.

Hope you're having a wonderful "yes" kind of day! :)

Trudy said...

This is funny...I love it! Woohoo, bacon for dinner...I am so there!

Lisa @ Boondock Ramblings said...

I would have said no to the wrestling to. It would have been harder to say 'no' to the Husky, but that's because I want one too. However, if he isn't willing to feed the dog, take him out for walks, etc. ... then no is a good thing to tell him.

The diet thing...yeah, I can relate!

Libby said...

I am getting ready to say no to my diet today!! Warm brownies are downstairs waiting on me ;)

Michelle Pixie said...

No is used so much around here gosh I can't remember exactly what I say it to but it seems No and I have become the best of friends. ;-)

the Lola Letters said...

I said no to:
Make up
Clothing (well, I did say yes to my bath robe)
Getting out of bed before noon
Staying out of bed after 2:00
Eating anything other than beef jerky and marshmallow mateys...
and no to general productiveness of any kind!

LOVED this post!
You crack me up.

Elle Bee said...

This made me smile the whole way through! Love that you turn to bacon in times of a dinner crisis. There really is no substitute for bacon. :o)

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

I love this post!
I said no to the local taxes today. I had no urge to fill out the paperwork. Having 2 young kids, I probably said no about 275 times today, but who's counting?
I would definitely say no to a Siberian Husky. My parents have one and that dog has WAY too much energy. She makes my kids look calm.

lifebythecreek said...

D*mn. I had NO idea that we were twins. IMagine that; we must have been separated at birth. *sigh* I'm a little punch-drunk... you MUST be. You know what I'm talkin' bout, dontcha? You just might be amazing. Email me if any questions on my cryptic post, Wonder Woman. !!!!

WhisperingWriter said...

My husband also wants a husky.

I also keep saying no ;)

Rachel said...

I laughed and laughed and laughed my way through this (and possibly snorted and guffawed in a most ladylike fashion at several points).

I said YES to the triple chocolate cake in direct violation of my desperately dying diet.

I said NO to doing my taxes just yet. UGH...!

Thanks for linking up - this was just hilarious!

Lucy said...

This is funny, although I think you should say yes to the husky...they're fluffy and cute. Now I want one.

Dianne said...

how funny - I look the same way when making dinner except I do wear a long single strand of precious pearls

I said No to grocery shopping in the pouring rain
I had Twinkies and wine for dinner

Anita Johnson said...

This post cracked me up. And that picture of "you" making breakfast? Well, I look exactly the same but my hair is a bit darker. (Nice n' easy Cocoa Brown, I think and I'm already eating tomorrows calorie allotment today) None the less, it's going to be a great day, hope yours is too!

mamamia said...

you are hilarious! i know you look like that when you cook becaue you are June Cleaver to a T! When I cook, I like to wear my ballroom dress, it makes me feel like a queen. . . who doesn't have to cook, so what am I thinking?
Tell Kaish if he wants to move to Iowa, I will give him a dog. ;0) and give Gary a kiss on the lips for me.

Grand Pooba said...

Hahaha! And I'm sure your shirt is off the shoulder too, just like the picture. I mean, that's how I cook too except I always wear pearls. LOL

I say no to my diet everyday :o)

Donna said...

You totally crack me up! I loved the big pile of bacon for dinner. You rock! Even if you're a meanie and won't get your boy a Husky.

Jewelz said...

You know I did say no to something today...but it did me no good at all!! I rolled over, after the alarm went off tooooo early...I said NoOOo. I hit snooze...it went off, I said NooOOOOOOOOoo AGAIN! I pulled the covers over my head and the day just grabbed me by the feet and yanked me outta there screaming NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
☼The day did not listen☼....so here I am :0)
Now I'm off to my bed so I hopefully awake tomorrow and bound outta bed saying BRING IT ON :0) instead of NO!

Cheers
Jewelz

Granny Smith said...

I love this! I particularly relate to that NO on taxes. But they gotta be done (sigh).

Baby Sweetness said...

hahaha! I've been saying no to taxes for weeks, but now I said later. Later is Friday. I hate you, taxes.

I tried to say no to housekeeping, but remembered my Mom arrived this afternoon. So I said "half assed" to housekeeping and ran around like a nut in a few spare moments before work.

I said no to productivity and visited blogs! :)

paige said...

You are always so funny. SO FUNNY. I said no to 3 hours of reading other people's blogs today. I only did 2.99 hours.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

I say, give that boy a husky, and give everyone some bacon! Mmm, bacon.

Mrs.Mayhem said...

Super post! You are so funny.

Lula Lola said...

So funny! After looking at your picture, I realize that we must have been separated at birth. But, I'm skinnier too. :)

I got suckered into the ridiculously expensive, way too late on a school night WrestleMania. There were promises of clean laundry and clean rooms and clean cars. I fell for it. It's all still dirty! Foiled again! (Total waste of $57)

Kristi {at} Live and Love...Out Loud said...

You crack me up! I loved all of these. Funny thing is, I look exactly like you do while baking fabulous pastries and...stuff. Except my hair is super long and flowy. lol Great post!

Kristi, Live and Love...Out Loud

Christy said...

i said no to wrestle mania too :) not only do i say no to my diet, i say no to the whole concept, each and every day...bad me!
the end of the week is near...wishing you a great weekend and happy easter

GlowinGirl said...

Thanks for stopping by Sugar Tails. Love to make new friends!

This post is hilarious. :) I say no all the time -- I have a 16 month-old who likes to write on walls, climb on tables and empty tissue boxes. I also have two adventurous boys who forget their brains sometimes. The need to hear "no."

Plus, I love chocolate more than I should, so I say no to healthy eating every day at about 2:00. :)

JDaniel4's Mom said...

The ice cream looks so good!

Unknown Mami said...

Nothing wrong with bacon on bacon.

Katie said...

Yep, I had myself a ice cream cone today. I say no sometimes but it is so fun to say yes!! I tell the kids all things in moderation. Have a blessed easter.

MommieDaze said...

I would have said to no to most of those too. My hubby is downstairs doing the taxes right now. Gotta get our money back!
