To Be Honest...

To be honest...raising teenage girls sucks!  Sunshine has not been very "sunny" lately, more like "Black Hole Sun", maybe that's what I'll call her while she's acting out of sorts - BHS.  Ugh.  The last two days with her have been terrible!  She was pissed at me on Sunday because I told her Saturday night that her room needed to be cleaned up & her laundry to the basement before she went to her birthday party on Sunday.  I reminded her again Sunday morning that those things needed to be done.  Do you think they were done?  Nope.  So, she was late getting to her party because I had to make her finish her room.  Then last night, an hour after supper she was "starving", so I told her to have something of substance, no junk.  I suggested some carrots & ranch.  She got that but while I was outside, she came out with a cookie hanging out of her mouth.  I mean, really?!  After I scolded her, she decided to call her mother up & tell her that Paul & I weren't letting her eat.  Yea, pathetic, huh?  She then tried to come in apologize but she couldn't grasp the reason why I was upset with her - she disobeyed me & then proceeded to disrespect me.  She just kept saying that I was mad because she ate food.  I finally had to have Paul get her out of our room cuz she just wasn't comprehending.

To be honest...being a stepparent sucks!  I do all this stuff for BHS - get her signed up for dance, get her signed up for gymnastics, pay for all of her stuff for gymnastics, etc.  But the second that I'm disrespected & am upset about it, run off to Dad or Mom about how mean & terrible I am.  How is that fair?!  It sucks.  I've gone through all this stuff with Trouble & the thought of having to go through it again shakes me to my core.  Ugh.

To be honest...not being on vacation sucks!  I so badly just wanna take my book & go sit on the beach all by myself - no husband, no stepdaughters, nobody.  Just me.  I wanna soak up some UV rays & just relax.  I don't think that's too much to ask for, is it?  I did take the afternoon off on Friday to take BHS school clothes shopping but if she's going to continue to treat me the way she has been, we won't be doing that.  So, I may have an afternoon to do something for myself!  :)


  1. Ahhhhh your posts remind me of how much a BITCH I was to my mom growing up. Sheesh. I hope things get better and it's just a little phase she's going though. Maybe her hormones have started surging in haha

    1. I have a feeling that it's hormones time. She'll be fourteen in September so it's about time that it happens. I just hoped & prayed that she would be better...I mean, she is better than what her sister was but it's like I have no more patience for the lack of respect & such. Ugh.

  2. Oh man I'm sorry!! Hopefully her sunshine turns bright again soon for you! That would be pretty hard having to parent kids that aren't respectful after all you've done for them. Fingers crossed for you!

    1. I hope so too. I don't like that she's gone all BHS on me. It sucks. I know that a lot of it is due to hormones & that she's been non-stop doing things but still, that doesn't allow one to be disrespectful. Teenagers - ugh!

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…

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…

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 &/orApril.

My five this week are five of my latest funnies pinned on Pinterest.  Lately, work has been a lil difficult & I need something to make me smile on this Friday morning.  So, here we go:

So, are there any posts that have been giving you a giggle lately?  If so, please share.
Have a great weekend, yall!
