Lord, Help Us All

Things that I absolutely can't stand
  1. When I ask someone "What's wrong?" and I get nothing back. Not "Nothing". I mean nothing. No response, no shrug. Just a blank stare. Well, that's something I guess.
  2. When someone tails me while I'm going the speed limit in a speed trap zone.
  3. When I put my signal light on with plenty of time for the ass above to slow down and then they come literally within an inch or so of hitting me and then get pissed and flip me off. Ya know what Sparky? I have no air in my car or house, my period's coming and it's hotter than hell outside. Did I mention I was wearing hot (not ooh she's hot hot) jammie pants cause I haven't shaved in two weeks and you can see the forest blooming on my legs? Yeah that tends to add to the bitter and anger. BACK OFF.
  4. Communication. Communication. Communication. I have to tread lightly here so I don't get in trouble. I try to communicate with people. When they don't want to talk back or share thoughts or feelings, I really hope they don't get pissed when I shut the hell up. I'm tired of trying and I'm simply not doing it anymore. No more small talk. I don't know what else to do. If people aren't going to like me for whatever reason, that's their problem. I like me, I'm from a different place and ya know what? They like me there too.
  5. I'm also tired of sharing deep emotional feelings. I'm not doing that anymore either.

I thought I would feel better after this but no, I don't. Not at all. Great.

To cheer everyone up......

I love this clip for several reasons. It's That 70's Show. I love Kitty, I want to pee my pants when she laughs. Red kills me. He kinda reminds me of my dad and my uncles rolled into one. The best part is towards the end. We're from Minnesota. I hate the Packers. It made the clip that much funnier for me.

I hope you feel better soon, Trish - I really think it must be the heat.. everybody on the planet that's dealing with weirder-than-usual heat seems to be on edge and apt to cry at the drop of a sunhat (weak little Haha).

Thanks for the Brady Boys "That 70's Show". It's my absolute favourite TV show - I hadn't seen this episode, don't have cable or a dish, and could only get it by stealing it online until we managed to buy the Seasons 1 and 2 DVD sets. You've cheered me up even though I'm sitting here naked trying to figure out what else I can take off that will make me feel cooler. Do you think clipping my nails will help? Cuz otherwise, I may have to shave my head.

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

When was the first time that you realized that your home was not like other people’s homes? 

My house has always been different from other houses. I don't think I could narrow it down to a particular time. I recall not having friends stay over. Ever. I always stayed at all my friends' houses and called their moms "Mom".

Not a lot of my friends were only children so to them, I was the odd duck. Believe me, I *was* the odd duck. Just for a myriad of other reasons.

Having a family of my own, I really see the differences in houses. We are more relaxed with some things that would not fly in other houses. It gets loud in our house. Extremely loud. If I stopped them from being loud all the time, I wouldn't get a single thing done. I tend to jump in right away when the kids are arguing because it can, and will, quickly snowball into WWIII and someone (or both) will be crying. We let our son play the Wii, computer or DS for far longer than other parents or even the "…


Please do not ask me to email photos out, I get entirely too many requests for them. These are the ones that I have at home, thanks to a couple of sources.

This Has To Be Said

I haven't blogged in 8 months. We bought a house, still unpacking, school started. You know, life. I felt the need, the urgent need to blog about the Adrian Peterson situation today. I am full of all sorts of feelings and had to write about it. I would love to hear your thoughts on this whole thing. No really, I would. I don't feel I was a douchebag in my writing so all I ask is you not be a douchebag in your response. Thanks.

My thoughts on the Adrian Peterson situation (but first, some backstory):
I was spanked as a child. I'm pretty sure most of us that grew up in the 80s were.Until the summer between 5th and 6th grade I lived in Charelston, SC and from 6th to 11th grade, North Chicaco, IL. I have seen every form of discipline doled out on a child. I've seen spankings, beatings, hairbrushes smacked into heads, spoons hitting the tops of heads, whips, belts and even switches. I've seen it all.Most of you know that my son is named after a little boy who died from c…
