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 it rains, it pours.  Not only have I been in pain from my hip but I have been having more problems than usual waking up in the morning & then having morning headaches.  I don't know what the deal is but I just have not been feeling well at all lately.  Then on top of that, Sunshine had some issues at school yesterday where she was disrespectful to a teacher.  I was in shock when he called me to let me know what happened.  Those actions were that of her sister, not her.  I made her quite aware that I was very disappointed in her for acting that way especially towards a teacher.  *sigh*

I've learned...that you couldn't pay me enough to be a teacher nowadays especially at the high school level.  Teenagers are horrible lil creatures...okay, not all of them but a good number of them.  It just shocks me the way kids treat teachers & then when the teachers talk to the parents, sometimes the parents try to make excuses for their kids.  It just drives me banana sandwich.  I believe that teachers should be respected & appreciated.  Even though some of these teachers I deal with are younger than me, I still call them "Mr. So&So" or "Ms. ThisOrThat".  So, if you are a teacher that is reading this, thank you for what you do!  You are awesome!

I've learned...that hopefully by this time next week, both of my stepdaughters will be doing something.  Sunshine is going on Saturday for interviews at a local grocery store & Paul is going with Trouble on Monday to talk with an Air Force recruiter (we'll see if she actually goes).  Both of these girls need to be doing something.  I am not too worried about Sunshine getting a job & such as I told her that my old car will be sold if she doesn't have a job & decent grades.  As for Trouble, it's been almost a year since she worked & that was for just a couple of weeks, she's nineteen now & needs to either be working full-time, going to school or going into the military.  She's had playtime for WAY too long!

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…
