Things I Learned When I Wasn't Blogging

I can't believe that its been almost a month since I posted anything.. I'm so sorry!!

It's been so crazy around here!!

I'm not fully back, because I still have a bunch of craziness to mess with, but I thought I would let y'all know I'm still alive, and post up a little randomness..

  • Doctors are stupid.
  • And just because Google says you should be prescribed a certain drug for whatever illness does not mean you actually will be.
  • Pharmacies and Insurance Companies are stupider. They have a really hard time understanding that normal people don't have an extra $400 lying around to spend on medication.
  • I still love Christmas, and now that all 7 of my trees are up (yes, 7 - though the way the kids count it, there's 10) I can't wait for next year when I get to buy new decorations.
  • Having been married to Bean for a year is a little odd. It feels like yesterday, but it also feels like we've been married forever. I don't really know how to describe it, but I like it.
  • Children are evil. They'll bully anyone that's different in any way, and when you add that fact in with Oliver's outstanding uniqueness, its a recipe for disaster.
  • School administrators are morons. And unless a parent throws a very large hissy fit, they don't pay attention to anything.
  • I'm pretty good at throwing hissy fits.
  • My sister is a bitch. My mother is a pushover. Combine those two things and you get a family gathering being hosted by me on Monday, when I have to work both Monday and Tuesday.
  • Tallulah needs a physical Christmas list so that she can't change her mind 55 times in the last two weeks leading up to Christmas. She also needs to note on said list exactly who she's telling she wants what. Especially when she's asking both Grandmas for $100 dolls.
  • Oliver should never be allowed to browse for cool things online. Especially when he actually gets money. He could bankrupt himself in a very short amount of time.
  • Cold weather makes Bean hurt. Alot.
  • I hate working with women. They throw little fits over the stupidest shit and then post it on facebook for the world to see.

That about sums it up. I expect to be back a little next week, and then fully functional after Christmas.

oh, I have a MAJOR EWWWWWW about Monday. sheesh!
That SUCKS, considering who will be doing 100% of the prep, cleanup, etc, etc, etc for said "get together".

Now, go get Bean to light you a fire and you should be all happy. Because it's perfect fire weather :)

Agree with bullying and same goes for adults in the workplace too. People try and pull power moves on each other to protect their turf or display their superiority. Its been in schools since day one and only now gets press because administrator are chicken sh$% and afraid to dicipline the students. The parents come in and say my little Johnny would not do that and nothing is done. Thus the students who are there to learn and get ahead in life are penalize and the thugs and trouble makers do and get what they want. Something is wrong and hopefully it gets back on track. It starts at home with parenting skills and respect for others beings. Some people should try them sometime.

My final paper was about diversity in the classroom. Oliver could have been the subject of the last part of it. Kids come in all different ways and they should be taught it's okay to be unique.

And, by the way, I missed you.

I've missed you. I have a senior and an 8th grader, I can promise you that school districts, schools, and school employees are NO FUN to deal with but junior high and high school are by far the absolute worst.

I hope your hissy fit helped your cause!

I agree with everything except one--both my mother and my sister were bitches.
Rod has gone to Target to pick up my meds because my back went out BIG TIME!! He also took me to the dr., and on the way home, he is getting us a pizza for dinner. This is something very rare for us to get, but it is Papa Murphey's Pizza, which is the best pizza on earth. I am pre-heating the oven, and Rod will do the rest.
My Christmas letter is on my blog, if you care to read it.
I hope you have a wonderful, fun, and peaceful Christmas!!

I wondered where you had run off too.

BTW, there's still an unwrapped present sitting under my tree. It has your name on it. Won't you stop by my place and open it?
