Tuesday Talk...

This is my first time joining the Tuesday Talk link-up & if there is one thing you should know about me, it's that I love me a good link-up.  So, starting next week I'm going to combine my To Be Honest with Tuesday Talk - two birds, one stone.

Anywho, the thing I want to talk about today is Trouble.  I know, I talk about her a lot but she is what pretty much inhabits my brain especially after getting a disciplinary email this morning - the first one of the school year.  She left school grounds without permission so she got a truant charge against her & a detention.  I explained to her before school started that she needed to stay in school or she would have to pay for her phone & that would be $80 a month or she would lose it.  Not much to ask, right?  Just keep your butt in class.  Could she do it?  Of course not.  So, now I'm gonna have to be the bad guy & get rid of the phone.  I tried to explain to her before that she has the power to get what she wants just by staying in class, getting good grades, obtaining a job, etc.  Her grades are up & I'm really happy to see that & she gets to have a later curfew on school nights:  C's or better it's 9:00, B's or better it's 10:00, anything lower than a C & it's 8:00.

So, she's got the curfew thing at a good place - 9:00 currently.  If she would just stay in class with no unexcused absences, she'd have a phone.  If she would get a job & just work a couple of days a week, she would be able to drive the car from time to time.  She needs to learn that to get something you want, you need to work for it.  In less than eight months, she's gonna be 18 & a short month after that, she'll graduate (hopefully).  When she gets out into the "real world" she has to know that she needs to work.  I really feel that she's going to fail, she's going to fall on her ass or depend on a man to take care of her because she won't work, she won't do what needs to be done.  It sucks, I don't want her to fail but I just feel that if she can't do what we ask of her now, what is she gonna do when more is asked of her?  I guess, only time will tell. 

In the meantime, please pray for my sanity...

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!
