To Be Honest...

To be honest...raising teenage girls sucks!  Sunshine has not been very "sunny" lately, more like "Black Hole Sun", maybe that's what I'll call her while she's acting out of sorts - BHS.  Ugh.  The last two days with her have been terrible!  She was pissed at me on Sunday because I told her Saturday night that her room needed to be cleaned up & her laundry to the basement before she went to her birthday party on Sunday.  I reminded her again Sunday morning that those things needed to be done.  Do you think they were done?  Nope.  So, she was late getting to her party because I had to make her finish her room.  Then last night, an hour after supper she was "starving", so I told her to have something of substance, no junk.  I suggested some carrots & ranch.  She got that but while I was outside, she came out with a cookie hanging out of her mouth.  I mean, really?!  After I scolded her, she decided to call her mother up & tell her that Paul & I weren't letting her eat.  Yea, pathetic, huh?  She then tried to come in apologize but she couldn't grasp the reason why I was upset with her - she disobeyed me & then proceeded to disrespect me.  She just kept saying that I was mad because she ate food.  I finally had to have Paul get her out of our room cuz she just wasn't comprehending.

To be honest...being a stepparent sucks!  I do all this stuff for BHS - get her signed up for dance, get her signed up for gymnastics, pay for all of her stuff for gymnastics, etc.  But the second that I'm disrespected & am upset about it, run off to Dad or Mom about how mean & terrible I am.  How is that fair?!  It sucks.  I've gone through all this stuff with Trouble & the thought of having to go through it again shakes me to my core.  Ugh.

To be honest...not being on vacation sucks!  I so badly just wanna take my book & go sit on the beach all by myself - no husband, no stepdaughters, nobody.  Just me.  I wanna soak up some UV rays & just relax.  I don't think that's too much to ask for, is it?  I did take the afternoon off on Friday to take BHS school clothes shopping but if she's going to continue to treat me the way she has been, we won't be doing that.  So, I may have an afternoon to do something for myself!  :)


  1. Ahhhhh your posts remind me of how much a BITCH I was to my mom growing up. Sheesh. I hope things get better and it's just a little phase she's going though. Maybe her hormones have started surging in haha

    1. I have a feeling that it's hormones time. She'll be fourteen in September so it's about time that it happens. I just hoped & prayed that she would be better...I mean, she is better than what her sister was but it's like I have no more patience for the lack of respect & such. Ugh.

  2. Oh man I'm sorry!! Hopefully her sunshine turns bright again soon for you! That would be pretty hard having to parent kids that aren't respectful after all you've done for them. Fingers crossed for you!

    1. I hope so too. I don't like that she's gone all BHS on me. It sucks. I know that a lot of it is due to hormones & that she's been non-stop doing things but still, that doesn't allow one to be disrespectful. Teenagers - ugh!

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…
