Musical Monday...

(You Drive Me) Crazy by Britney Spears

I'm losing my mind this morning.  I had a great weekend which I'll post about when I'm in a better mindset & have the pictures ready.  But for now, I must have a vent session.  I know, probably not what you want to read on a Monday but I need it!

Anywho, here are the facts:

  1.  My cats have better work ethic than my seventeen year old stepdaughter.  True fact!  When I give wet food to my two cats - Chandler & Tyrion - I make them sit & sometimes "say please" before I set the dish down in front of them.  If I ask Trouble to bring down her laundry "right away", it's like I've asked her to murder a litter of puppies.  Really?!

  2.  My husband is basically a babysitter not a parent for his own kids.  I thought of this last night.  While he has kept them alive before I came into the picture & continues to do so, he doesn't really teach them anything.  These girls, mostly Trouble, expect everything to be handed to them without any work or appreciation.  It drives me crazy!  When I was on my vacation last weekend, I got each of the girls some goodies from a fudge shop.  Sunshine thanked me as she dug in, Trouble didn't thank me at all.  I got them each something from Under Armour over this past weekend &, again, I got a thank you from Sunshine while I had to drag a thank you out of Trouble.

Why is that most kids nowadays have this feeling of entitlement?  When I went fishing with my cousin, Colton, last week who just graduated from high school, we talked about that.  He has jobs - yes, plural - & he's appreciative & did well in school (silver cords).  I already gave him his graduation present & he gave me a huge hug & thanked me & was so excited about it.  So, I know that there are decent kids out there but it seems that they are the minority.  Does anyone else see that?

Okay, I think that I'm done with my vent session...


  1. I see it as your parents have to treat you to be grateful. If a kid acts all entitled then it's 100% because of the way their parents raised them. My mom taught me a super strong work ethic and I've worked crazy hours since I was like 16. I also really really love money haha.

    1. I'm right there with ya! My mom dug into my head that I had to work for what I wanted & I took that & ran & did pretty well for myself. I was also taught to be respectful & appreciative.

      Any of my friends with younger kids, I tell them to engrave those things into their child's melon when they are young cuz it's hard to do so when they are older. I didn't come into Trouble's life until she was 12 so she was pretty set in her ways & the ways that her father brought her up. Sunshine, on the other hand, was only 8 so I was able to form her a little better.

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!
