Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

Yup, pretty much.  I wish I was in that canoe right now just a-canoeing away...however, I would be going in circles & not many cuz that's a whole lot of work & my arms would get tired real quicklike.  Tee hee!  Okay, gimme my car instead & I'll be outta here.

The hubby & I talked last night about Trouble coming home & it didn't go well.  He was making excuses for her & saying that my expectations are too high. So, apparently, it's too much to ask for the following from a sixteen/almost seventeen year old:

  ~  C's or better in school.
  ~  Actually staying in class & not skipping.
  ~  Not breaking into people's homes or other criminal acts.
  ~  Not to smoke weed (I suppose that could be tied in above).
  ~  Get a job.
  ~  Not to beat up on one's younger sibling or stepparent.
  ~  Keeping the bedroom picked up.
  ~  Be respectful.
  ~  Not to post sexually explicit pictures on Instagram.

Yup, so that's just too much to ask of her.  I told Paul that I have the same expectations for Sunshine.  We went to bed angry with each other again...that seems to happen quite a bit lately.  I really think that both he & Trouble are going to fall back into their old ways & nothing will get better especially after our conversation last night.

I would really like to know what I did to piss the universe off to give me this plate of crap to munch on.  I'm so stressed & upset/pissed all the time.  I keep thinking about what life would be like to be out on my own again.  What I would need to go to be on my own again.  It just sucks so damn much & I don't know how much more I can take.

    1. Very true.

      Hope all is going well with you, girlie. :)

  2. You didn't do a damn thing to deserve this stress. You're a wonderful person and don't ever think otherwise. Those expectations aren't unreasonable at all, like I've said before.

    You can get in your car and drive this way anytime you want! I'd love to have you! :)

    1. & you know that KY would be the first place on my list to go. :)

  3. That list of things is what, I would hope, every single parent expects of their children? I can't imagine anyone letting their kids do something on that list and get away with it!

    1. I know, right? He later told me that those were acceptable & relayed them to Trouble & her social worker. I just don't understand why he had to make me feel that I was asking too much. Ugh.

  4. ACTUALLY, okay, the smoking weed thing is probably okay many parents (though, not most).


    2. Oh, I know there are some parents that either don't care or are just that damn naive & it's just insane.

  5. Your expectations are not too high. They are more than reasonable. I respect that you are trying to hold to what are absolutely reasonable expectations and not just give in easily. Compromise is important to relationships; giving in is not. Stay strong!

    1. Thank you. Compromise is important & that's why my expectations really aren't that high. & they were the same expectations that my parents had for me & my siblings...I mean, we didn't have to even think about some of those though. I just want her to do well, be nice, be good & then in a little over a year, get the Hell outta my house & live her life.

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

True frickin' dat!  The old phrase "think before you speak" comes to mind.  I know that sometimes emotions get the best of us & we don't think things through before we let words leave our lips.  Sometimes those words can be hurtful, embarrassing or lovable.  Lovable doesn't seem to be one that comes to mind, I'm sure, but I remember the first time that Goose told me that he loved me.  He didn't think it through & those three lil words came flying outta his mouth at a birthday party in an old friend's living room.  I could not believe it but those words were already out in the universe.

I doubt that Goose would change anything now but at the time, it scared him to say those words & he probably would have thought it through a little better but, in that case, I'm glad that he didn't.

However, I'm really trying to get the girls to think before they speak & I tell them that once words leave their lips, they may have it off thei…
