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.

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…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.

When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
