Mandie's Weekly Lessons:
1. Almonds Are Better Than Pecans. I'm currently enjoying my newest Trail Mix - candy corn, pecans, peanuts, crasins & Cinnamon Chex & I've come to the conclusion that I prefer almonds in my Trail Mix over pecans. Pecans are good but not as good as almonds.
2. The Girls' Mom Is A Real Bitch. If you're new around these parts, I have two stepdaughters - Trouble (18) & Sunshine (15). Their mother has not been a stable fixture in their lives & she has put them both through Hell especially Trouble. There were times that I held Trouble on the kitchen floor while she cried about her mother. Now, on Monday, I had to do the same thing Sunshine. Their mother is now treating Sunshine like she did Trouble. I am beyond pissed. She says horrible things about me but I am the one that is raising her daughters, I am the one that picks them up when she tears them down. It's just SO frustrating. She hasn't seen Sunshine in about two months & I'm pretty sure that she hasn't seen Trouble since July. Some people should not be allowed to be parents...but there is a difference between giving birth & raising a child, that's for damn sure.
3. It Pays To Work Where I Do. My employer is a sponsor of our local summer collegiate baseball team, the Rafters. Well, the General Manager & NWL Executive of the Year came in the office to show off the team's Summer Collegiate World Series trophy. I got called into one of bosses' office to not only shake the hand of the GM but to touch the trophy & get my picture taken with it. My day was made! :)
