To Be Honest...


To be honest, I was going through some pictures of Trouble & Sunshine on their Instagrams & maybe I'm biased cuz they are my stepdaughters but I think they are both pretty dang cute:


Trouble.


Sunshine.

They both drive me absolutely batty & I want to beat them most of the time...however, I still love them & just want the best for them both.

When I'm having a bad day with Trouble, I just have to remember that she does have a good heart, that she can be a good, caring, loving person.  I have seen that in her.  She worries so much about her friends & will fight for anyone she loves at the drop of a hat but sometimes I think that's just so she can fight cuz Lord knows, she's good at that!  Ha!

When I'm having a bad day with Sunshine, I just have to remember that if it weren't for her, I probably would have lost my mind & took off.  For such a young girl with a tiny frame, she has taken on a lot of weight of many relationships around her.  She is so considerate of everyone & has such a great soul...a great OLD soul.  She is wise beyond her thirteen years on this Earth.

So, at the end of the day, I should consider myself lucky...it is really hard sometimes though but all the bad days will pass & hopefully at the end of the tunnel, I'll have two great ladies that I helped raise into that.

In the meantime, I could use a drink or two.  Tee hee!

    1. I try my best to be a good role model for them. I have always told them that their looks will only get them so far, they need to be good, kind people to go the distance. I especially made that clear to Trouble, she blossomed & as she did her personality went to crap but I am hopeful that she's on the up & up now. :)

  2. hahaha, I think raising kids definitely requires a drink or two on occasion. Always a new challenge on the horizon. We just do our best!

    1. You are right, we can just do our best & we'll make mistakes, we're not perfect as parental figures but it's all a learning experience for everyone involved. So, when your lil thang starts getting into her teens & you need some advice, head on over my way. :)

    1. Exactly! My struggles with Trouble (her nickname fits her rather well - ha!), she's been a lesson for me, her dad & her sister. We're all learning & growing. :)

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessicaor any of the other hosts.  :)

The only thing I can think about talking about is food, breakfast food to be exact.  I want to fill up on some delish carbs in the form of hash browns, toast, French toast & a sausage patty (just to mix it up a bit).  I want to be sitting at a cute lil diner chomping away...but sadly, I am not, I am at work instead.  Boo!

I am just thinking about all the things I would rather be doing instead of work, like, that in six weeks, the hubby & I will be on our way to Vegas.  The closer we get the more excited I get to be away for a week straight...I may never come back.  Maybe I'll become a cocktail waitress & leave again.  That would be the bestest thing ever...okay, maybe not the bestest but it would be pretty dang cool.

Since this post is just all over the place, I might as well talk about the fact that it's Valentine's Day.  I…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…
