Sterling Petty Blojo

I've lost it. I can't find it. I've searched and searched all damn day to no avail. My blojo. It's gone. You know what blojo is, don't you? It's blog mojo. Kind of like what Austin Powers had for his male prowess, but for me? My blojo is what motivates me to write. It puts silly ideas in my head to share with you. But I've lost the damn thing and I have no clue where it's gone.

Kind of like my purse this afternoon. I was ready to leave for the library when I realized my purse wasn't where I had put it the night before. I searched the whole downstairs then figured I'd check my room. Sometimes, if Jimmy gets in a snit because things are laying around, he'll take it upstairs and put it on my pillow. Yeah, he's nice like that.

It wasn't on my pillow, it wasn't in my closet. It wasn't even hidden under the clean laundry. What the hell? Did he take it with him when he left this morning with the girls for the Jacksonville air show? Naw, he wouldn't go that far to keep me from spending money, would he?

So I called him. He didn't answer. Finally, I decided to take one more trek up the stairs to re-look where I'd already looked. Then I thought, maybe he accidentally put it in Mikayla's room. Just as I got near her door I looked down, and what did I find, but a pile of the girls' stuff that they'd left laying around downstairs. And my shoes. And my flippin' purse! In the upstairs hallway on the freakin' floor! And not just at the top of the stairs where I'd be likely to see it, but around the damn corner toward Madison's room.

The next time I spoke to Jimmy I told him he can move the girls' stuff all he wants, but to keep his hands off my stuff. He told me, "You had it on the stairs. It doesn't belong on the stairs. I'm tired of everyone leaving stuff laying around where it doesn't belong."

Yeah well, I'd put my purse on the stairs so that it was behind the gate so Strudel wouldn't eat it.

Lately his big thing is crap being where it's not supposed to be. Can you say HYPOCRITE???!!! So, he went on and on about my purse and one pair of shoes being on the stairs. Ya know, so Strudel wouldn't eat them. I got off the phone and just glanced around the family room.

Hypocrisy Exhibit A:

Hmmm... that leather jacket looks just like Jimmy's! And hot damn, it's kind of on the stairs!

Exhibit B:

Gee, that suspiciously looks like Jimmy's suitcase that he brought in the house on Friday night. And it's on the couch.

Exhibit C:

I do believe that's my entertainment center and not a dumping ground for various electronics, shopping bags and paperwork.

Exhibit D:

That laptop case and that backpack does not belong to either me or the girls. I wonder whose it is? No, it's not even Zoe's. She's just inspecting it 'cause she knows it doesn't belong there.

I'm not trying to be petty or anything, but. Well. Yeah, I am trying to be petty, 'cause dammit, it's fun! If it wouldn't be such a pain in the ass, I'd take all of his stuff and put it on his pillow! But I'm just too lazy to lug it all up the stairs.

I do have one positive thing to tell you. I got a new laptop! Yeah yeah yeah, I know I just bought my tiny little Acer not 6 months ago, but if you were in this house when both the girls get home from school and they fight over who has to use Madison's Mac more, you'd understand. It was getting mighty tiring breaking up fights over a laptop. So, Mikayla got my little red one and I... I... got a new toy!!!

I got myself the cheapest dual core laptop I could find at Best Buy, and man am I diggin' it!

Look, my little Acer now has a daddy!

Aw, is that not the cutest thing? Go ahead, look again, and take notice of what my blog layout looks like on the Acer, and what I can now see. Yes people, I can finally see the layout I paid for! Woo to the hoo!!!

His name is Sterling, 'cause he's a pretty luminescent silver. And he's big. Real big. 15.6" of dual core ecstasy, his hard drive bringing me hours and hours of non-stop performance...


Yes ladies, size does matter.

Pssst! If you love me, you might love my stupid sister more. Go visit her at Jill's Believe it or Not, and tell her I sent you!

  • raxx a day in the life

  • Amy

    Well.. from the looks of this post.. you've found your blojo...HA! Cool new 'puter too. I totally get the fighting over the computer.... my laptop is mama's and NO ONE touches it without my permission.. if they want to keep their fingers that is! ; )

  • Cole

    Look at the pretty new 'puter! I hope it inspires your blojo to come back; soon!!!

    I say that you should at least bring the jacket upstairs to put on his pillow. Just to point out that it's annoying when he does it to you.

  • Stephanie

    If it were me, I would seriously consider leaving a roller skate at the top of the stairs. Is that wrong?

  • squawmama

    Hey girlfriend it doesn't look like BLOJO to me... Great post! And hey It's like the pot calling the kettle black isn't it... Jimmy's crap is all over the place... As for your new computer it is awesome but now I know why you kept complaining that you couldn't see my whole blog... TEE HEE Have a super day and tell Jimmy I said get off your back or I'll come kick his ass when I get back to Florida...LOL

    Love Ya

  • Rena

    Love the photos. Damn, that looks a lot like my house though!

  • Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

    Apparently your Blojo is back, because this post cracks me up! Hovering Hubby and Princess Nagger are notorious for leaving things laying around... I decided to stop picking up after them to see how long it would be before hubby got tired of seeing the mess - it worked! He did a thorough job cleaning yesterday - even vacuumed the whole house!! HAHAHAHA!

  • Ginger

    Jimmy would hate my house where stuff sits that doesn't belong. I don't have a pillow big enough for him to put it all.
    Glad you found your head to the mall.

  • blueviolet

    I'm glad you went to a laptop from a netbook. I like netbooks for ease of travel but for serious blogging, you need the big one. What a huge difference in what you can see!

    Jimmy is a total hypocrite!

  • Life on Bonnie Lane

    For someone who lost their blojo, you had plenty to say!

    I may be evil, but I would have taken a garbage bag, put all his shit in it and put it on his side of the bed. But that's just me. lol

    I am so glad that you got a new computer!


  • Shelia

    Hey Justiny! Well, honey I think you found that ole Blogjo. I kinda like what Kady said - that would be funny - on this side of the fence anyway. Jimmy might get a tad mad though.
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  • Swirl Girl

    Is that his porn star name or his everyday name??


  • Rachelle

    Sterling - you are one good lookin fella! Congrats on the new laptop - thats what our boys want for Christmas. And I don't think your blojo was ever gone - all your posts are always so great!

    P.S. You at least have to hide one of Jimmy's suitcases in a pile of the girls stuff - a little payback is a lot of fun!

  • Dawn

    LOL! For someone who lost the blojo you did a great job!

    I love all the "proof" of your husband not putting things where they belong.

    For the record, our stairs look the same way. Ugh!

    I love your new laptop! Awesome!

  • Sue

    Did you ever see the episode of Everybody Loves Raymond where they leave the suitcase on the stairs for weeks?

    Sterling looks like quite the hottie. You are one lucky girl!

  • Prairiemaid

    Just SSS snooping around. Love your blog and the new laptop! Congrats!
