Tuesday's Ten

I have a friend (and fellow blogger-- check her out HERE -- who says that Murphy must actually be a woman, because no man has ever given her as much grief as this B----.

So, I'll call the "lady" Murphina, just like my friend does.

Listen up, Murphina.  Listen good.

1.  Look, no pets this time, okay?  Both deployments, I had to take a sweet old girl to the vet and say goodbye.  Both deployments, my heart broke.

2.  You can leave my kids alone too.  Sure, one is pretty independent.  But she's miles and miles from home and I miss her and can't just go and help her.  So leave her alone.

3.  That means the little one, too.  First day he's gone on this thing and you send her home in tears because some little miscreant is bullying her?  Uh-uh.  No way.

4.  I know your tricks.  I know when he leaves, you like to play with the car and the plumbing and all of that.  Stop it.

5.  For my part, I'm going to the gym.  I'll either do it at home (yay, Wii!) or I'll find out that the circuit gym really does give a deployment discount.

6.  In case you can't read between the lines, that means leave me alone.

7. Stay the heck away from my husband, too.

8.  And our parents.  Oh for all that is holy...Murphina, keep your nasty little trouble-making hands off our parents.  Yes, stuff happens.  Wait til he's home and we can deal with it together.

9.  Or better yet, go away,  Shrivel up.

10. Remember...I'm watching you, Murphina.  And I am stronger than you could ever be.

[11.  Please don't take this as a dare.  :)  ]


  1. Here's to hoping she leaves you the heck alone!!

  2. People have NO clue how strong you are! You are incredible and I try and follow your lead. Back off to all Murphy's and Murphina's!

  3. I love it when I get a comment on here. :) Makes my little heart go pitty-pat.

  4. Came over from "people I want to punch", just wanted to say I hope murphina leaves you alone as well...good luck!
