To Be Honest...

To be honest, I'm pretty pissed off at the moment.  My husband thinks that it's okay to make me out to be the bad guy all the time.  That may not be his intent but it's what he does.  Example:  he sent me a message today asking if it would be okay for Sunshine to be out our house with two friends unsupervised.  I don't like it one bit.  The visions I have in my head is that they'll eat everything they can get their hands on, make a huge mess, go into Trouble's room & go through her stuff (they've done that while we've been home), etc.  But he just goes ahead & lets them even after I have voiced my concerns.

Then he'll talk to the girls about us going on all these vacations, vacations that he has not discussed with me & gets their hopes all up to go to Florida or to here or to there & then when they tell me about them I'm all confused.  It pisses me off.  He brings these girls up & then I have to bring them back to Earth & I'm the bad guy.  Why is that I have to be the big mean bad guy all the time?!  I'm so tired of it!  & they know that I'm the one that has rules set & making them do chores because they've never had to do them before I came around.  But that's the way of the world, you gotta follow rules & do some work once in awhile.

I'm just getting so frustrated that I can't think straight!  Ugh!


  1. Aw that's not fair to you at all!! I am always the bad guy with my daughter but that's because... I am her only parent. Her grandparents and other family members spoil her and promise her the world and then all the mean stuff is left for me to do so it feels like I'm always the only person disciplining her. If I had a 2nd parent with me I'd hope we would back each other up and share the burden of being the bad guy equally!

    1. Exactly! Co-parenting is supposed to be a team sport & it's nice to have that other person for support. Ugh. Being a parent is hard. :\

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
