Guess what, today is Opposite Day or Sarcastic Day, whichever you prefer.  I know that I'm supposed to be blogging about what I love on this Wednesday but I'm gonna do what I "love" - insert eye roll here.

I "love"...that some pathetic little life forms broke into Greg's truck early this morning & stole a brand new gym bad that was part of "K"'s birthday present.  The person/s went into the truck (it wasn't locked - doh!), found the bag, took all the packing paper/cardboard out of it, left the garbage in the truck, left the door of the truck wide open & took off.  Luckily, they didn't take anything else & the battery didn't die due to the door being left open.  But they stole part of a little girl's birthday gift, what a bunch of losers!  Scum of the earth...

I "love"...that when Trouble was home for supper the other night, she still has NO idea what she wants to do when she's done with school.  She has less than a year, she actually has about four months cuz if she wants to apply to some colleges, she has to do that by December.  Paul suggested that she go with her original plan of going into the Navy but she said that she doesn't want to do that anymore & Sunshine, without looking up from her plate said:  "that's because she doesn't want to be told what to do".  Ha, ha!

I "love"...that the girls' mother doesn't want to help pay for things for her kids.  She told Paul that she wasn't going to be paying for extracurricular activities.  Oh yes, she is!  She doesn't pay child support or hardly anything else, she chips in when she feels like it.  Well, that's gone on for far too long.  She's either gonna pay for half of the girls' stuff or she's paying child support.  Plain & simple.  I just don't understand her thought process sometimes.  Ugh!  She has said many times that those girls aren't mine but apparently, it's okay for me to pay for things for the girls that aren't mine.  She drives me batty!  Grrr!

What are you loving/"loving" today?


  1. I'm sorry you are having issues with the girls' mother not helping out financially. I have another friend in that situation. His ex-wife won't help out at all. :(

    1. It's pathetic & she knows that Sunshine wants to be involved with all these things & she was agreeable to Sunshine picking up gymnastics (unless her grades dropped when school started - which I totally agree with) but now she doesn't want to pay. That's fine, we'll just go after her for child support then. :)

  2. I love (do not insert eyeroll because I'm being serious) that you used Rob Zombie's Scum of the Earth for that first paragraph. Perfect. Perfect choice for that loser thief.

    The stories we share about our teenage step-daughters...oh, the stories we share.

    1. I love that song SO much! Rob Zombie is amazing!

      Yes, our stepdaughters keep our lives interesting, that's for dang sure. Ha!

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.
