Tuesday Talk...

I know that yall are probably sick of my tales of sorrow about Trouble but that seems to be my life right now.  Paul & I had a very nice time away in Chicago that I'll talk about in another post but on the way home, I had this anxious feeling & I didn't want to go home cuz I knew that crap with Trouble would be waiting in the wings & it was.  I already had to yell at her this morning about leaving Sunshine alone & after work, I'll be going to suspend her cellphone services.  I told her before school started for the year that she needed to attend class in order to keep her phone.  She has not done so.  I warned her.  I gave her chances but today I had it - SEVEN unexcused/truant absences.  I'm done.  Paul & I fought about it & after she had skipped this afternoon, he agreed that it needed to be done.  Which I told him that I didn't care if he agreed or not, I pay the bill, I gave the requirements, they were not followed so I would suspend it & didn't care one bit about what he had to say or her mother had to say.  I told him that he could kick me out or divorce me but I was going to do it.  Maybe I'm a bitch but I feel that I gave ample warning & chances to correct the behavior, it has not been done & now I have to be a lady of my word & hand out the punishment.  She's gonna go crazy when it's done but Paul told her so she knows it's coming.  Pray for me this evening as I'm sure that she'll lose it on me for doing just what I told I would do.



  1. Sending you giant hugs. I hope tonight went better than expected. Love you!

    1. Love you too, girlie! Things went okay. We weren't even in the same room last night. When Paul brought her home, I stayed in our bedroom until I went to get Sunshine from dance.

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.
