Marriage Means Nothing!

Here we go with another marriage down the tubes after only a couple of weeks. Sinead O'Conner just ended her 18 day marriage. What the fuck? Is it all of the sudden cool to just marry anyone and then get divorced a few days later? Is it funny? Or are people just that fucking stupid?? If your marriage ends within a few days or even a few weeks, obviously shit was wrong BEFORE you got married and if you still got married, you are a dumbass and get what you deserve!

I've been married for over 8 years, and it has definitely had its difficult moments. Marriage is something that is intended to be forever, but it typically doesn't happen that way; it's very rare if it does. Since when did marriage become just a literal piece of paper? My husband has a cousin who is in her late 20s and on her 4th husband. FOURTH! Are people just fucking idiots or what? You decide to marry every guy you date longer than a week? Then all of the sudden you decide, hey, wait, I don't like being around this person every day, I better go find someone else to marry?! If your marriage can't even last a month, then obviously you didn't hold up your end of the bargain. There is no way in Hell that you could have "tried everything" within a few weeks and then just decide, "oh well."

I've watched that Kardashian show one time. I don't care about any of those twats, but after their divorce announcement, I wanted to see what was going on. Her husband is obviously a big ogre of an ass, but I'm 100% sure he was probably the same ogre of an ass before their wedding day. That just makes HER look like an idiot.

My husband and I have separated twice. One thing I remember, the first time we split up, was some advice I read online. It said that people jump into divorce too quickly and that you should not file divorce papers until you can honestly tell your children that you tried everything, AND you can walk away from the marriage with a clean conscience and no emotions for your spouse any longer. People give up too easily. When I got married, I meant the promises that I made. I know people change and things change with time, but you can't give up that easily.

Love, Live, Respect, Death. I will LOVE you through LIFE and RESPECT you through DEATH... My husband and I's matching tattoo.

No! You Are NOT a Diva!

I absolutely despise the word "diva". I hate it when women call themselves a Diva, and I really hate it when people call their daughters a diva. The simple word "diva" annoys the shit out of me, and why do so many women choose to call themselves a diva? To me, a diva is someone who thinks she needs to wear 10 lbs of make up every day, has to have her hair "did" (that annoys me, too, btw) every week, her eyebrows have to be perfect, her clothing has to be perfect, her shoes have to be perfect, she thinks SHE is perfect, even though she is obviously NOT perfect if it takes all of this lame crap to make herself look that way!! A diva is also a materialistic bitch that thinks she doesn't have to lift a finger to work, that she is owed everything, and is better than everyone else. Why would anyone want to be that way? A diva is the type of person who I would like to punch in the throat and pull her fake weave off of her head!!

I did a search on Photobucket for the word "Diva" to try to find a good graphic to use for this post. I had to search through hundreds of photos of women who THINK they are a diva, the majority of them were  bordering on being completely naked. Is the new meaning of diva also "whore"??

Every time any one refers to themselves as a diva I want to slap them across their face but don't want my hand covered in their 10 lbs of make up. Ya fake bitch.

Why the Hell would anyone want to call their child a "diva"? My child is NOT a diva, nor will she ever be allowed to act like a diva in my house! I hate the word diva!!! I've seen a lot of blogs with the word diva in the name, and to be honest, as soon a I see that word on their blog header, I will most likely click the big x and get out of their quick. I sure as Hell won't take anyone seriously that calls themself a diva. I want to kick anyone in the head who calls themself a diva. Twats.

F U Friday! In The Christmas Spirit!

 I've been waiting for the Fawk U linky to go up, but I'm guessing Boobies is very busy, so I've decided to post my list anyway before I leave for the evening to head to my mom's with the kids!

Even though I should be showing some Holiday spirit, I've decided a Fawk You Friday would be much better!!

FAWK you to my husband's previous job for screwing him out of his last check! He didn't work for you for free, ass wipe! Hand over the $$$!!

FAWK you to my Droid X phone that isn't working right. I don't know if it's the phone or the SD card, but I can't take photos any more with my phone because it won't even save them! I also can't get to my gallery to see my old pics! Sooo now all of those photos are gone!

FAWK you to the bitch at the utility company for always being a fucking bitch. My husband just got off of worker's compensation and back to work after having surgery and being off of work for over a year, but yet YOU still refuse to have any sort of fucking compassion. I hope your clit falls off.

FAWK you to all of the places I've applied for a job at who haven't even given me a chance or at least a fucking interview. I didn't work my ass off to get my degree just to waste time, paper, ink, and stamps applying to 2450845780 different places! Give me a freakin job, people!

FAWK you to the freelance job I was "hired" for a few months ago. You promised me that I would be able to work as many hours as I wanted on a weekly basis and get paid $$$$. So far, I've worked a total of 10 hours in the past 3 months, and someone else seems to be doing MY work, but yet you can't have the decency to TELL me or let me know what the Hell is going on! Thanks for wasting all of my time and getting my hopes up that this would be a decent work at home job to get us through the Holidays with.

Ho! Ho! Ho!!!!

Have you ever given your child coal?

I'm sure most of us have threatened our children, right? Especially at this time of year, that if they are not good, Santa will bring them coal. It works for some, but not every kid out there. My 7 year old son, for example, has been a real handful lately. He lies all the time, even when I TELL him that I saw him do something with my own 2 eyes, he will say he didn't do it. He talks back, he doesn't do what he is told to do, and he doesn't seem to care what the punishment may be. It could be time out, standing in the corner, taking toys away...etc., he will cry about it for a minute, but the behavior just continues. I'm to the point where I really don't want to give him any presents for Christmas! I even told him today that so far, he has acted up every day since they have been out of school for Christmas break (since Friday) but yet he still expects to get presents? He stresses me out so badly sometimes and I really don't think the little brat deserves presents! I thought about putting up the gifts we got for him and telling him that he has to EARN them. I know that I would feel guilty about it come Christmas morning, but give me a fucking break! This kid drives me insane and no matter what I do, he just doesn't seem to give a crap. He even told my husband the other day, "you're not the boss of me!"... and he's 7! SEVEN!

Have any of you ever given your child coal or taken gifts away? Christmas only comes once a year, is tough love worth it? Would it be rewarding his bad behavior by giving him presents? Especially, when Santa is supposed to give all naughty kids coal? This kid is more than just naughty! He's a plain out bad little brat! Yes, I love him dearly, don't get me wrong, but he just wears me down. Bribery doesn't even work! Should I go gather some coal????

Spoiled By Technology

I'm again inspired by things i can't say, but this time it's a rant. The post was originally about Christmas gifts and judging other people's choices..etc. It started out with someone asking for ideas of what to get a 4 year old for Christmas on facebook. Someone left a comment talking about their 11 year old nephew and allllll of the bazillion things this 11 year old had. Some of these things included various game consoles, a 50 inch TV, an iPad and a Blackberry, amongst other things. This is where the judgement came in. Some people thought it was great, while others thought it was awful. Where am I at in my opinion? Well, I don't like to judge other people because I don't like to be judged myself, and it is their choice of what to give their child, but shouldn't there be a line? I mean, seriously, why in the Hell does an 11 year old need a 50 inch TV or a freakin' Blackberry?? Are you kidding me? This is where my rant comes in. Of course, we all like to "spoil" our children, but where do you draw that line? My opinion is that if you give your child every single thing he wants, they will not appreciate hard work, or their possessions. They will also grow up being snobs to people who don't have everything and will expect to have everything handed to them. Even if I won the lottery and could afford all of those things, I still wouldn't buy all of that for my kids. They don't need them. They need to be outside playing like kids, or doing something important instead of sitting on their ass staring at a TV or computer screen. If they want some of those bigger things, they should earn them, such as with doing chores or getting a job (another reason why an 11 yr old doesn't need a Blackberry, if he's not even old enough to work!). Teach them responsibility and what it's like to work for the things that they want.

Last Christmas, my son cut out pictures in an advertisement and glued everything he wanted onto a piece of paper to send to Santa. I explained to him that he most likely wouldn't get every single thing! Even if I could have afforded it, I still would not have bought him every single thing on his list, I don't think that is teaching him anything good. No one likes those people who think they deserve to get everything they want, so why would I want to make my child like that? Does anyone else feel the same way? 

The second part of my rant: Technology is making people lazy and stupid. Ok, so I'm not a complete technology snob. I love my cell phone and my laptop. But guess what? I could survive without them. I may be disappointed but I would survive. People depend on electronics too much these days to do everything for them. A lot of teenagers don't even know how to do simple math because they've always had technology to do it for them. Kids aren't learning to use their brains, they are learning how to push buttons and have the answers given to them. Kids don't even know how to verbally communicate properly because they only know text messaging or instant messages. One day, my husband and I were waiting at a doctor's office. These two teenagers were next to each other, probably siblings, both of them had an iPad or something. They whole entire time I was there waiting, all they did was stare at their screens. They didn't once talk to each other or one another. It was like they were off in their own little electronic world. Technology is great for a lot of things and helps a lot of people, especially those with disabilities, but it's making the rest of the country stupid.

Lost Duggar Baby

Before I begin my rant, I just want to say that I am not in any way, making fun of losing a child. I know that it is a very traumatic thing to go through.

That being said, the big headlines for today is the story of Michelle Duggar losing her 19th 20th baby. Do they expect sympathy from any of us? Yes, the losing a baby situation is sad, but .. for her, really? I mean, she has spent her life being a human baby factory that often resembles that of a dog breeder. She has gotten rich off of her reality show, showcasing her 345081345 kids and getting knocked up every couple of months. Is she really that special that she can get knocked up that many times? Umm, no. Or is she a a few cards short of a full deck? I think anyone who has 20 kids is a little off of their rocker. Sure, lots of people love kids, but shouldn't there be a line drawn? If you have to have a freakin tour bus to take your kids to buy school clothes, isn't enough, enough?? Those 19 kids can not possibly get enough equal attention from their parents. They have the older kids taking care of the younger children. Eventually, the older kids are going to resent the whole situation. I've only watched the show a few times because I find it quite annoying. I mean, it's one thing if you want to have 5, 6, 7 kids.. but you should not expect your older children to care for your younger children. They are not just build in babysitters. I know a few families in real life that do this as well. Their own teenage kids don't have a regular teenage life because they are forced to stay home and care for their younger siblings. What kind of life is that? This country is already WAYYYYY over crowded, why make the problem worse?

I mean, after 19 pregnancies, her body probably just decided enough was enough. Her uterus is going to end up falling out looking like an inflated balloon. Give it up already.

Big Blog Rant!

Grrrr, look at this blog, just look at this crap! Blogger has somehow lost all of my photos/banner/graphics that I have posted or uploaded. Where have they gone? I know some other bloggers are experiencing the same thing but I've yet to find out what is going on or when this will be fixed. I'm gonna be really pissed off if I have to go through all 3 of my blogs and upload everything all over again. Ugh, really? this is NOT what I need right now, blogger! Get your crap together, NOW!!!!!

Soo, please don't let the lack of photos/banner scare you away. I'm giving it a few more days in hopes that blogger will fix this mess, if not, I will have to do everything all over. Blah.

It's OK: Part 1

I stole this idea from things I can't say . I thought it would be perfect for this blog. It's about not taking things so seriously. Sometimes you have to just sit back and say, "It's ok!" to do certain things that not everyone may agree with.. something like this:

It's OK to celebrate when it's time for your kids to go back to school. Anyone who has more than 1 child (and that are fairly close in age) knows how insanely annoying it can be to listen to fighting, arguing, and whining all day long. Enjoy the silence while you can get it, for your own sanity!

It's OK to buy yourself something nice once in awhile. Don't beat yourself up with guilt because you have 3 kids at home. They will survive and you deserve something nice once in awhile.

It's OK to get some YOU time, even if it means locking yourself in the bathroom, ignoring the knocks and "mommy, he did this!" until they go away. Again, enjoy every little bit of silence you can get before you end up in a straight jacket.

It's OK to have a sip of wine, or liquor, whatever is your drink of choice. Just because you are a parent doesn't mean you don't deserve to have a little bit of fun.

It's OK to miss the freedom you had before having kids. We all miss it. Ohhh, how I miss it. All of the travelling I did and the fun that I had. Soo many wonderful stories.

It's OK to think of the violent things you would like to do to your husband when he really pisses you off! Just don't carry them out. You get no liquor in prison.

It's OK to NOT be perfect in front of your kids. No one is perfect. NO ONE. As long as you are good to your kids, they will love you despite your imperfections. Don't beat yourself up about them.

It's OK to fart in front of your family and/or friends. No really, it's a basic bodily function. Why are we so embarrassed about it? Everyone does it! Don't lie!

It's OK to think more of your internet friends than you do your real friends. Honestly, most people suck anyway. Sometimes it's best to keep your friends at bay, behind a computer screen. People are assholes.

Part of the Community

Thanks for the post from Stan Atkins

I completely love living in San Francisco. I’m originally from the Alabama, which is very conservative, so San Francisco has been a great change of pace for me. Living in the South I always felt out of place because of my liberal political and social views. My friends and family were constantly criticizing me and trying to get me to change. I know they meant well, but I just always felt different and like an outsider. As I got older, this behavior just got more annoying, and I didn’t want to hear it anymore. I decided I had to make a move when I was 25, and it was definitely the right choice. When I got to San Francisco it was like an awakening for me. There are actually other people who think like me! Everyone from San Francisco wireless internet providers to the owner of the corner store is concerned with the same things I am. People here want to be environmentally friendly and socially conscious. I’m so glad I finally made the move and feel like a part of the community I live in.

For Sale: A Big Cup of STFU!

I know that retailers have been just waiting for this time of year to get here. Before Thanksgiving was even here, they had plans for all the sales getting them ready to suck up everyone's money. Everywhere I look it is sales: TV, newspaper, internet. I can't get away from it. I did do a little bit of shopping on Friday but that was it. I don't have a lot of money to buy 3453451245 gifts for every single person I have ever said "hello" to. I'm sick and tired of getting it thrown in my face every day that I'm a poor fuck who can't even afford your stupid sales. I'm not even in the mood for Christmas this year. Usually I love this time of year, but even with the decorations up, I'm just not into it. I don't care how cheap I can get gifts at 4 am or about Cyber Monday. I have other shit to worry about, like trying to find a job and trying to figure out how the crap we are going to pay our bills. Ohh and stop bragging about how many gifts you bought in one day or how much money you have spent on one freaking child. Good for you!! I don't wanna hear about it, though. There are more important things going on in other people's lives than what you bought your kid or what sales you took advantage of. Why don't you take some time to drop a few dollars into the red bucket and thank the bell ringer for taking their free time and spending it trying to collect money for the poor, instead of talking crap about how annoying their bell is. I happen to enjoy the sound of their bell, it gives me a good feeling. Maybe some of you should start thinking about other people for once. It seems the whole word is filled with selfish bastards who don't give a rat's ass about anyone else in the world. Those same people probably don't even know what it's like to struggle. I mean, really struggle, not struggling to figure out which heels to wear to the work Christmas party. I mean, struggle to survive, struggle to buy your kids shoes, struggle to pay your necessity bills, struggle to live day to day. Now shut the fuck up.

Fat Pockets for Fat Heads

Times are really hard right now. A lot of people are out of work. Jobs are cutting the amount of employees they need, or sending the jobs to foreigners (which pisses me off more than anything), or closing down because of slow business, putting more and more people in the unemployment line. I get so pissed off when I go to the grocery store. Why is it that the prices keep going up, up, up, and the quantity goes down, down, down? Do they think people are too stupid to notice that the amount of food they get in a package is going down while the price is going up? In these hard economic times, the big companies still like to bend us over and give it to us hard, making their pockets fatter while making ours smaller. What is a family supposed to do? Is mom supposed to go stand on the corner just for grocery money now?? I mean, seriously, how is this even RIGHT?

I was watching something on TV today, wasn't really paying attention to it until I heard them talking about the price increase. They were talking about Thanksgiving dinners and how the prices have gone up since last Thanksgiving. The cost of Turkey, fruits, and vegetables has gone up 7% since last year, while the cost of white potatoes has gone up something like 23 f'n percent! This shit is just ridiculous! People NEED to eat!! It's not an option. I'm so tired of the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer.

It's obvious the government doesn't care about us "little people" and neither do the big companies out there. We are just invisible little pee-ons that don't mean shit in their eyes. Welcome to corporate America. Bite my fat ass.

Sirius is Serious!!!

Whatever you do, stay far, FAR away from Sirius satellite radio. Let me tell you why....

Late last year, my mom bought a new car which came with so many months of free Sirius service. She liked it at first, so she renewed her membership for another 6 months. During that six months, she grew tired of the same songs just being played over and over so she decided she wasn't going to renew it any more.

When her time with Sirius was up, she called them to cancel it before they took money off of her credit card. She talked to one guy and explained that she wanted it shut off. The guy replies with, "oh, I can't turn it off for you, I'll have to transfer you to someone who can". So he transferred her to someone else. She had to give all of her personal information to the new person, just to find out that he couldn't terminate her account either. She ended up talking to like 5 different people, each time, having to give her information over and over and over again. Finally, she talked to someone that said they would terminate the service.

A few days later, it is still on. She calls back again, going through the whole thing again. Finally, it is disconnected. Of course, she was already pissed off at them, but it just got worse. A few days later, Sirius started calling her, asking her if she wanted to renew her contract! Are you f'n serious, Sirius?? She explained to them that she cancelled it because she didn't want it. They called again, and again, and again!! She asked to talk to a supervisor who said they put do not call on her account. Everything was quiet for a few days, but then guess what? They called again! Asking her to renew her account!

My mom works in phone sales. She knows how it all works, and she knows that these people are just normal people working for Sirius to make a pay check, so she was not rude to them, but did explain to them how angry she was with them and their customer service! One guy even said, "oh, I see it says do not call on your account". Well, duh. Finally, after 2405812745 calls, they got the hint that she didn't want their service!!

Lesson Learned: Stay far, FAR away from Sirius. They obviously don't know what the Hell they are doing or how to run a business.

Rude People With Stupid Crap Coming Out of Their Mouths

I saw a post awhile ago on another blog where someone had made a list of the rude things people said to her at one point. It was so long ago, I don't even remember what it was about, but I put it on my Rant list for this blog (yes, I have a list, haha).

After my twins were born, of course it was very obvious that they were twins because we were carrying around two infants. I absolutely hated going to the store with all of the kids because it never failed, someone would always stop us to talk about the twins or make some rude comment. Don't get me wrong, a lot of nice people commented on our twins (in fact, Ben Rothlisberger's parents came up to us in the mall and told us how adorable our kids were). The reason I got so frustrated was, for one, that I hated going to the store any way and I just wanted to get in and get out without being stopped by strangers that know nothing about us. The other reason, was because of the rude ass stuff people used to say. Here we go:

"Are they twins? Oh My God! Better you than me!"

"Twins? .. I'd kill myself!"

"Don't you know how that happens??"

and one that really got on my nerves was, "oh, you are so blessed, God  wouldn't have given you more than you could handle". It sounds nice enough, right? But, first of all, I am not a religious person. Second of all: I did not want any more babies for a long time. After having my oldest and realizing how difficult a newborn can be, we wanted to wait a few years. My dumbass doctor gave me the wrong dose of birth control and I ended up pregnant with twins when our oldest was only 4 months old. We were not financially ready for another baby. Hell, we could barely afford diapers. Mentally, I wasn't ready for another one. Having the twins so soon after the first was soo stressful. The last fucking thing I needed was for people to make snotty little comments about it, or telling me how blessed I am.. when I usually cried every day!

Now, don't get me wrong, of course I love my kids. That time in my life was just very difficult, but I did make it through and now I enjoy having the kids so close in age (well, most of the time). I just wish people would THINK before they open their big fucking mouths, especially to a stranger that they know nothing about. These people didn't know us, didn't know our situation, didn't know anything about us. Now, all of our kids look different; the twins don't look anything like, even have different hair color, so no one usually realizes that they are twins. Once in a blue moon someone will ask if they are twins and mention their blue eyes. I'm actually glad that they aren't identical. People say a lot of stupid ass shit.

Why Are They So Obnoxious?

I'm taking a risk posting about this topic, but this is something that has really been nagging at me and many other people. First, let me ask this question: Why do most black people think it is ok to be loud, rude, and disrespectful to others? Now, get that look off of your face right now and read on first before you start calling me names. Also, remember I said "most" not ALL.

Lemme start from the beginning. I grew up in a small town that had a bad reputation; in fact, it was nicknamed "Little Detroit" (and for good reason). I remember when I was in high school, I would tell my mom how rude the black kids were. They were always sooo fucking loud, yelling and screaming down the hallways, or laying in the middle of the hallways. Teachers were afraid to discipline them because as soon as the teachers would, the kids would scream, "It's because I'm black!".. Umm, no, it's because you are acting like a flaming asshole!.. When I first told my mom this, she just blew it off, basically saying that it couldn't be that bad. I kept telling her to just wait and she would see for herself.

I don't remember what year it was in high school, but our school had a talent show. My mom went. She couldn't believe how rude and loud all of the black people were. They were screaming and yelling and acting like fucking idiots. No one else was acting that way. See, I told her!

Then came my high school graduation. At the beginning of the ceremony, they asked that everyone be quiet and hold your applause until the END of the ceremony after all of the students have received their diploma. Of course, no one really listened and when they would call names, people would clap and cheer. However, any time a black person's name was called, it was more than clapping and cheering. It was hoopin' and hollerin, and acting like a damned fool!! My mom finally saw what I dealt with on a regular basis.

Yeeears later (I'm not saying how many), I graduated from college (just this past Friday, in fact).  Everyone was excited and happy to be graduating. They called each class individually, like Pharmacy, or Medical Transcription. They then had the class come up and each person was given their degree one by one. The practical nursing class is probably about 95% black and they were the last class to be called (it was all in alphabetical order). The majority of them must have thought this was the hoe convention or something because most of them showed up looking like hoochies. I'm talking mini skirts that barely cover the ass, fishnets, and stilletos. Before the ceremony, they would stand in the middle of the aisle posing for photos like they are fucking models, not letting anyone through, making people stand there and wait. Anyway... sooo, they didn't even let the announcer say the class name. They interrupted her and just started screaming and yelling and barking (yes, you should know what it means when I say barking!). There were like 50 people in the class with maybe 5 white people. Every black name that was called, their family and friends were acting like fucking animals again. Each student was asked to limit their guests to 4 each. Some of these people brought like 20 people with them, taking all of the seats. My friend's brother had to stand the whole time because there were no seats left. Some guys sitting behind my family were playing dirty music on their cell phones. A little asian lady asked them to turn it off and to stop being rude. They just laughed at her and kept playing the music. Finally, my husband turned around and told them in a not so nice way to turn their shit off. They did that time. Even after the ceremony, some of them were trying to push in front of the graduates that were walking out in line, until someone from the school had to go over and ask them to let the graduates go first! I turned around and told this one bitch to have some f'n respect!

Now, don't get me wrong, there are white people and other races that act this way, but they are far and few between. I'm sincerely asking if someone can explain to me why black people think it is ok to act like that? I also know that not ALL black people act this way either. There are some that can act like a decent human being and be respectful of others around them. I'm the type of person that is nice to everyone as long as they are nice and respectful to me. These people had absolutely no respect for anyone else. They had no respect for other graduates, the teachers that were there, or the families that were there. They always want to pull the race card, but what do they think their ancestors would think of their behavior? I have to admit, they make it really hard not to become racist. If it was just a one time incident, it would be different.. but I see this all the time. It's like they always have to be the center of attention and overly dramatic. I was disgusted by how these people acted.. they made the whole school like trashy. What makes them think it is OK to act like this??

Homework: When Is It Too Much??

I now have two first graders and one second grader. I knew that when we moved to a smaller town, that their smaller school would probably a bit tougher, but wow, I am overwhelmed. These kids just turned 7 and 8 years old. They spend 6 1/2 hours in school and then have another hour or so worth of homework at home, each. At this age, they really don't have a great attention span and they can't just do their homework on their own yet; we have to help them with everything and make sure they are doing it all right and doing everything they are supposed to get done. We have to actually sit there the whole time. I think I spend more time helping my young children with their homework, than I did on my own college homework! Our kids come home, play for a little bit, dinner time, then homework. By the time they are done with their homework, it is just about bath and bed time. We can't do anything "extra".. like, say, go for a walk together, or what about extra curricular activities like Cub Scouts or sports?? My second grader was in 1st grade last year at a different school and the only homework he had was some vocabulary, and like 3 worksheets he had to have finished by Friday each week. At this new school, all of them usually have math, reading, spelling, vocabulary, writing, and an extra reading assignment (usually a whole book) for their reading intervention class because they are a little behind, EVERY night. Three of them. I mean, seriously, even with my husband helping, it seems to take all night! The kids are tired and frustrated, and so is mom and dad!

Don't get me wrong, I know all kids have homework. Older kids usually have time to do their homework in class or they have a study hall class that they can at least get most of it done. When does homework become too much, though? Can't they just be kids after school and play, and annoy mommy and daddy like kids are supposed to?? Thank God I'm done with college now, otherwise my husband would be the one stuck helping all 3 of them since I took evening classes!! I guess I shouldn't complain too much, at least I know they are getting a good education. It's just frustrating some nights when they seem to have just soooo much to do!!!

F-U Friday again!

Oh yes, it's that time of the week again! A day for me to rant and vent about anything and everything that's been pissing me off lately! Thanks to the lovely boobies for hosting F-U Friday!!

FAWK YOU: Worker's Compensation! For not paying my husband enough to support our family! We can't sue his job because of the new "no fault" law, and we can't stop worker's comp., for him to go on temporary disability until we find out if he needs a second surgery, so he is just stuck getting paid less than half of what he used to make. How is anyone supposed to survive on that?

FAWK YOU: Utility company for screwing us over. Somehow, it just happens that our water bill soars at the same time this town is putting in new water lines. Then the bill goes down when the new water lines are done? We didn't do a thing different, so explain this to me, plz, mmkay. Also, for not having any kind of financial assistance for people like us who are stuck on piddly ass worker's comp., and can't pay our outrageous bill. Do we have to sell everything we have just to pay you to bend us over???

FAWK YOU: Job hunting! Since I finished college, I've been sending out buttloads of resumes, and filling out so many applications that I can't keep them straight. I've had ONE phone call, ONE! I need a job so freakin bad, it's not funny.

FAWK YOU: To Me! For not posting any rants in such a long time! I've been spending time job hunting and trying to make money wherever possible online, and just haven't been in the mood to rant. Yes, I have to be in the MOOD or it just doesn't feel right! I couldn't find one simple rant that I really wanted to write about! I'll get back into it soon, I promise!

The Car Shop

This guest post from Werner Rogers

I own a car shop and it’s been a long road from the day we opened the doors to the success we’re having now. I love the idea of owning my own business but man, is it a lot of work! I’ve had to do everything myself from looking into credit card services to talking to the landlord when I decided to buy this place to calling an accountant when I found out I was getting audited. I love having so much control over what goes on here but it’s a lot of responsibility, too, so there’s a lot to be said for working for someone else when it means you don’t have to answer any of the big questions! I wouldn’t do anything else so I guess I’m glad this has worked out so well for me and that I found my passion so early in life. I’ve had a lot of support so that’s been one nice thing I can say about having a huge family like mine here at home!

Children's Toys and Games

I have 3 children and they all have birthdays that are just 4 days a part. Yes, you read that right, 4 days apart! We usually end up having one big birthday party for all 3 of them. I was searching for somewhere that I could purchase everything online that I was looking for instead of having to shop at a bunch of different places. I found a website that caters to all parental needs. They have everything from puzzles, games, music, arts and craft supplies, stuffed animals and learning games. They have both boy and girl games and toys. You can seriously find just about everything you are looking for for young children. Everything here is aimed at children using their imaginations which I think is a wonderful thing!

This will really save me a lot of time and I can find items that will keep my children occupied all year long. Christmas is only a few months away, so I know exactly where to shop!

Bed Rest

Contributed by Milford Woods

I’m 5 months pregnant and believe it or not, I’m already on bed rest. Lucky for me I didn’t have a full-time job anyway but since my first pregnancy was so challenging my doctor decided it was best for me to ride out the next few months like this. Needless to say, I’m bored to death which is part of the reason I’m writing this blog! Does anyone out there have any suggestions for helping me get through this time? My husband went to http://direc.TV and ordered us satellite which definitely helps since I can watch TV and movies all day but sometimes even those are too much for me to handle. I’ve been reading more books than ever and writing a lot of handwritten letters but I’m just counting down the days until this baby boy comes out and I can get back to normal life! I hate not being able to hold my daughter or make dinner for the family but I know this is best for both of us in the long run.

RIP Ryan Dunn, Jackass.

So most of you have probably heard about the death of Ryan Dunn. Yes, many people are very sad about it, but am I the only one who thinks he really is a jackass?? I really don't feel bad for him. He was drunk driving going 130 mph. Seriously?? Was he trying to kill himself and his friend? You gotta be an idiot for trying to drive 130mph, but doing it drunk? Just yesterday, I heard the conversation Bam Margera had with his mom talking about Ryan's driving, saying how he always drives like an "asshole" and "remember when he almost killed us", and April kept saying that Ryan was going to be one of those people that are killed in their vehicle. Was she psychic? Or did she already know what an idiot he was?

Drunk driving is one of my pet peeves. If you are going to be driving, DON'T drink, it's that simple. You are not only putting your own life in danger, you are putting others in danger as well. How would you feel if you hit a van filled with kids and killed them? Or killed your best friend who is sitting next to you in the car? People are fucking idiots. I feel bad for Ryan Dunn's family, but it was his own damned fault. Obviously, the whole jackass clan are adrenaline junkies, and I love watching their shows and movies, but don't put other people's lives in danger by just doing stupid ass shit like drunk driving. Ryan should be the poster child for drunk driving. Dumbass.

This was a picture he tweeted just a few hours before the crash, most of you have probably seen this, but just in case...

What's the fastest you have ever driven? I'm just curious. I think the fastest I've driven myself was probably 80-85. Yeah, dumb, but it was on the turnpike and I was honestly keeping up with traffic. My husband on the other hand loves to drive fast and likes to see how fast he can get a vehicle to go. I'm too scared to do that crap; it's too easy to lose control, even when you are sober.

*Knock Knock*

Sometimes the simplest thing can spark an idea for a topic to write about in this blog... I'm a quiet, private person. I like my privacy, even though I have a husband and 3 kids whom don't give me much of it. I'm also one of those people who does not like it when people show up unexpectedly. You know what I'm talking about; you are in the middle of doing dishes, have water all over and a mess to deal with in the kitchen and you hear the "Knock knock". CRAP! The house is a disaster, there are toys everywhere, the dog puked on the floor and I didn't take the time to clean it up yet because I was in the middle of dishes, and now someone is here? Eeeeek! Do I hide and pretend like I'm not here? That's difficult to do when you have 3 kids running around yelling, "Someone's at the door!". Can't hide then, unless I want them to think that I leave my children home by themselves?

I freak out easily when it comes to people being in my house. I'm not a clean freak by any means. I don't like to clean, and I get pissed off when I spend all day cleaning and the little brats ruin it within the first hour! I get paranoid when someone else comes into MY house. Everything has to be perfect. Every piece of paper has to be in the trash, every toy has to be put away, and every ounce of dust has to be wiped away, OH and the house has to smell delicious. I have to have some sort of candles lit or air freshener around.

So yeah, I really hate it when people show up unexpectedly. I know there are a lot of people who are just out and about and think, "Oh, I wonder if so and so is home? Let's stop by". I don't like to be interrupted. I may be working (since I work at home) or doing homework, or doing chores around the house. I want to look presentable to anyone who comes over unless it would be my old best friend who has seen me at my worse. I also don't like to just drop in on other people, even when friends say, "stop over any time, I'm always home!". Even if I'm only a block away, I will call or text them just to make sure they are not in the middle of something. I don't want to be a bother!

Do you welcome unexpected company? Or do you like notice when someone is going to stop by??

Botox Kids? Beauty Pageants?

Did any of you see the story on Good Morning America the other day about the mother who injected Botox into her 8 year old daughter to get rid of the “lines” on her face? I was so disgusted by this. I’ve always hated child beauty pageants. I think parents who do this are ruining their children. First of all, little girls are not meant to wear slutty looking clothing, and 2 lbs of make up on their face. It’s gross. Most kids don’t want to have to worry about being “perfect”, and smiling the right way or walking the right way. What are you teaching your children? You are teaching them that looks are the most important thing in life and that their brain or personality doesn’t matter. How are these kids going to be as teenagers or adults?

I could not believe this mom that injected her kid with botox. She had no remorse for it and tried to justify herself by saying that other pageant moms do it, too. When asked where she got the botox from, she refused to say.. because, well, it’s probably illegal! This should be considered child abuse. The little girl even said that it hurt. Botox is dumb anyway, but it should be the child’s choice. It’s not like a vaccine or something that they need. It’s all for looks. That little girl will end up like that disgusting cat woman that got way too many plastic surgeries and now looks like a deflated barbie doll. This mom should be in jail. Parents are trying to live their life through their children and trying to make them as beautiful as THEY (the moms) wish they were. Let kids be kids.

What is your opinion on toddler/children beauty pageants??

Escape From a Scary Mountain

Thanks for the post from Hal Potter

This is my personal favorite new movie that is available on demand: Escape From Witch Mountain. You may ask, "Hey Ted, why is your favorite movie a kids movie when you are a forty two year old man?" I think this is a perfectly valid question but I am not going to answer it because I don't much care for player haters. This movie is not in theaters anymore. I watch my favorite new movie on demand on life were in special effects I'd feel pretty darn special for sure.

Royal Wedding Schmedding..

I'm sick and tired of turning on the news and the first thing I hear is talk of the upcoming "Royal Wedding", or advertisements for all of the special shows that are coming up regarding the wedding dress, who is making the food for the wedding, or who is going to clean the piss off of the floor in the bathrooms after the wedding. Who fucking cares???

This is the U.S.A., do you think the majority of the people in this country give two shits about two people getting married in another country, just because one of them is a "Prince"? People get married every day, what makes THIS so special?? Spend money and time on events that REALLY matter or that are important to us, not this stupid crap. Do you think we care how much money is being wasted on this wedding? More is being spent on this one event than most Americans make in their whole lifetime. Why DOES America care so much? Or do they really care? With so much other bullshit going on in the world, why is this being held above everything else?

Yes, it's all fine and dandy that they are getting married, but, really, I don't give a flying crap. I don't know them, nor do I care that they are getting hitched. They don't mean a damned thing to me.

A clock? REALLY?? ::Rolls Eyes::

F U!!!!!!

BWS tips button
My favorite day of the week is here again. If I had the time, I would participate in Fawk You Friday every week because I do love it! Here we go....

FAWK YOU Strep Throat! You caught me last week and made me so miserable that I couldn't eat, drink or talk. Then you got the Mr. Rants and even though he didn't actually have a sore throat, he still had strep. which kept him from working on our new house this week. Who gave you permission to take over our lives? Huh??

FAWK YOU dumbass people. I'm talking about the ones in my Medical Administration class. Come on, the teacher goes through everything step by step. She tells you exactly what to click and what to type, so why, oh WHY does half of the class whine, "What??", "Wait, I'm lost", "Mine doesn't have that", "Where are we?", "Where's that at?" every god damn 2 minutes??!! Those of us with at least half of a brain could be finished with class an hour earlier if it wasn't for you idiots making the teacher stop to explain everything again.. and again!! Pay attention!!!

FAWK YOU financial aid lady. Be a bitch to me and threaten not to schedule me for any more classes because I didn't call you while having strep throat to schedule my appointment. Are you that important that I would even think of calling you when I couldn't even TALK?? Go ahead and threaten that if I don't return your calls next time you won't schedule me for classes, I only have 3 more months of school dumbass, I won't ever have to deal with your bitch ass again. You're shit still stinks, honey, I can smell it from here! .. Oh, and you and your little co-worker in the cubicle next to you need to stop talking ghetto. You sound ridiculous and make me want to throw up.

FAWK YOU Gray's Anatomy. Fawk you for your stupid "musical" episode a few weeks ago. I know I'm a little late with this one, but that was the dumbest fucking episode I have ever watched. Don't do it again... EVER!!!!!

Take Care of Your Animals

I've recently been following the story of Patrick. He is a gorgeous Pit Bull that was  found in a trash bin, starved and almost dead. He is slowly being nursed back to health but has a long road ahead of him. They found his owner, she said she couldn't afford to feed him so she just let him starve then stuffed him in a trash bag and threw him down the garbage chute.

I'm a huge animal lover. I don't understand why people get animals if they aren't going to take care of them? If this woman truly couldn't afford to feed him, why didn't she give him away? I've heard that even some food pantries offer dog food! Why would she just watch him suffer and then throw him away? I see this every day though, when people don't take care of their animals. People leave their dogs outside in all kinds of weather; 100 degree weather in the summer and -20 in the winter. Would YOU want to stay outside in either of these extremes? Or why get a dog if you are just going to keep him tied or penned up, where he only has a few feet to move around, and has to lay in his own waste, and the only attention he gets is when his owner brings him food and water once a day?? If you don't want to take care of an animal, including giving him or her lots of love and attention, then don't get an animal!!  I am just sickened at some of the things people do to their animals. Animals have feelings, too.. you can't just throw them away or ignore them. They want to be loved and cared for the same as you do.

Here is sweet Patrick getting a bath, about 2 weeks after he was found in the trash.

Help Ourselves First!

Yes, it is very sad and horrible what has happened in Japan. Thousands of people have lost their lives and it is a tragedy. Personally, I'm tired of hearing everyone talk about sending Japan money. First of all, aren't they a very rich country? Second of all, isn't the United States like billions of dollars in debt? Something is just not right here.

Every day you hear on the news about the government lowering or stopping funding for this thing or that thing. We are helping our own people less and less. I have a friend who has two autistic sons. Her sons both get medicaid because of their disability, but the government is always unwilling to pay for this medication or that medication, and the family can't afford to buy their meds out of pocket, so their children suffer without medication. Right now, thousands of people are out of work and don't have a place to live or to call "home". Shelters and places like soup kitchens are losing funding and many are having to shut their doors, leaving the needy out in the cold, literally. People are dying every day because they can't afford medical care. People are starving because no one here is willing to help. If someone tries to get help, they are looked down on and considered trash or "unworthy". All of these special fundings are being cut to help dig the U.S. out of debt. Thousands of illegal immigrants are allowed to come into our country and steal our jobs, and the government does nothing about it; in fact, people from other countries can come into the U.S.A. and be treated BETTER than Americans!

Why is it that Americans are willing to help other countries but not help their own? Why is everyone rushing to send money to Japan or send our troops to Japan to help them? Why does America always have to look like the "hero" but yet we let down the ones we should be helping the most? Why should I send my money to Japan instead of helping the homeless right here in front of me? Why is everyone else more important then our own country? I just don't get it!!

Project Runway *Guest Post*

I Never Miss Project Runway

Thanks for the post from Kirk Wood

There's a show on the Lifetime channel called Project Runway that I would have to call my favorite fashion-themed show. It usually comes on my satellite TV from DIRECTSTARTV.COM on Thursdays, so I never miss it; if I'm going to be away from the TV, I always set the TiVo to record it. I think what really makes me like the show so much is that I sew and make my own clothes, so it's really interesting to watch other people's workflow; sometimes I learn something new and adapt it to my own workflow.
The judges are the only thing about the show that I dislike. Every time a model walks down the runway, I can tell that Michael Kors hates what he sees. He always has this sour face like he's sucking on a lemon; what really makes me mad is that I usually like what he hates. Nina Garcia is also bad because she looks at the clothes and bases her decision on whether it would sell or not, instead of judging it on originality and creativity. Either way, I love the show and can't wait for the next season.

Fawk you mother nature! You have gone a little too far with this cold and snow crap this year! What did we do to piss you off? Bring me spring, NOW!

Fawk you cramps! For being so painful and making me not want to do anything but rip someone's damned head off!

Fawk gas prices! Are you seriously up to almost $3.50 a gallon? Stop fucking people up the asses with this shit! We can't live like this and we all need gas so that we can go to work, school..etc.. are you going to make us steal it??

Fawk you germs! You have made all 3 of my kids sick and made me take my oldest to the doctor. What makes you so special that you can just come in and take over our lives like that? Get Out!!

That Is All.

Who Cares About Brand Names??

Just curious here. How many of you buy name brand purses or clothing? I know there are people out there who collect name brand purses or hand bags... but, why? I mean, to pay hundreds of dollars for a flippin purse?? Seriously? Believe me when I say this, but the $20 purse at Walmart will hold all of your shit the same way as your $250 purse will. Do you really need to feel soo important that you think having name brands make you special? How many of you out there just have to buy name brand clothing? Even though, a lesser known brand may look better on you? If you want to throw your money away, how about doing something good with it, like giving it to a charity then? How many times have you stopped and donated money? Probably not often, eh?? But yet you will be happy to spend hundreds of dollars on a label name? Wearing a specific label does not make you special, I promise!!

As for me, I buy what I like. If I like how something looks on me, I will buy it. Hell, I've bought camo. capris at freakin Family Dollar. Fuck you if you laugh! So what? I don't need to spend an obscene amount of money on a billion dollar a year label just to feel good about myself. I don't care about what label is on my fat ass and I really don't care what name is on your ass! It still smells like your ass!!!!

Do something GOOD with your money. Help people who need it instead of fattening the pockets of billionaires. I know that most teenagers go through a stage of wanting to "fit in" by wearing name brand clothing, but really, if you are over the age of 21, grow the fuck up and get your priorities straight!

Take This Job and....

I know that we all get frustrated with our jobs, no matter what type of job it may be or how much we love it. What I am really getting sick and tired of is people constantly bitching and whining every day about how horrible their job is and how much they hate going to work. Shut the fuck up already! Do you not live in America? Do you not realize how many people have been laid off or fired from their job? Do you not know how many people have lost their homes because they lost their job and can't find a new one?

In my area, the job market is REALLY bad; it's difficult to find a job even at a fast food restaurant. Banks are repossessing homes left and right, people are losing their lively hood..... everything. and YOU, you have the audacity to complain about your job?? SHUT UP! Your JOB is paying for that nice new SUV you are driving around. Your JOB is paying for that big 4 bedroom house you are living in. Your JOB is paying for the name brand clothes on your ass, SHUT UP already!!! No one wants to hear you whining and complaining every day about your job. Be happy and thankful that you HAVE a job because a lot of people don't have one and can't find one right now. Be happy that you have a regular paycheck coming in every week and your bills get paid. If you hate your job THAT much then quit and let someone have it who really needs and/or wants to work. You look like a big huge pimple covered ass and need to STFU!!

I Am Not A Mom Blogger..

I may be a mommy and I may be a blogger, but I am not considered to be a “mommy blogger” by most because I don’t write about my kids in 95% of my posts. Why don’t I do this? Well, to be honest, I don’t think everyone else in the world really cares. I’m sooo bored by blogs that are nothing but what little Brooklyn or Aiden did today (I use these two names because 354087345 people name their kids these names... try being unique!)... Do you realize how many people in this world have kids? Do you realize that 12 and 13 year olds are having kids? It’s not some big special thing that you did by getting knocked up (by this, I don’t mean any harm to anyone who has struggled with fertility problems, that is different).  Just because little Aiden went poopy in the potty, does not mean that you have to announce it to the whole world. Guess what? Every other 205871345345 child in the world eventually learns to poop in the potty! It’s not some big huge special feat that your child has mastered. Your story is not special! Anyone who has kids probably has a story just like it.. even the 13 year old mother down the street’s kid probably did it, too. An entire blog dedicated to your pregnancy? Do you realize how many pregnant people there are in the world? What makes yours sooo special?? (ofcourse you think it is special to YOU, but it’s not to anyone else). We all probably have the same type of ultrasound pictures and similiar stories. But do you really need to post about yours every day? Or how much you threw up this morning?

Of course I love my kids, but I am with them all day long. Blogging is something I do for ME! My name is not MOMMY, I have a real name and I am a person outside of just being a mom. My blogs are kind of like my getaway. I don’t need to revolve my writing around my kids because the majority of my day revolves around them. None of you out there know me or my kids, and I’m sure you don’t care about what my son made in 1st grade today, do you?

Bloggers can do what they want with their own blog, I suppose, but I just like a blog that has something original to say.

Fawk You Friday Returns!

BWS tips button

Fawk you snow and cold! I know I live in Ohio and should be used to it, but I’m tired of shivering while waiting at the bus stop for my kids and having freezing toes all day long! You are causing too many problems! Last week I slid over the yellow line because of ice, and would have been a goner if there had been a car coming the other way. One day of class cancelled because of you means a make up day, which also means on the last week of class I have to go 4 days instead of 3!

Fawk you sickness! You have been here since xmas day! Be gone already! I’m tired of coughing and not being able to breathe because of you. Give me my life back!!

Fawk you elementary school! For making me get up so damned early in the morning! It should be illegal!!

Fawk you irresponsible parents! Yeah, I’m talking about you.. the ones that don’t discipline your children, or teach them about what respect is. I’m tired of having to deal with your little hellions. If you didn’t want to BE a parent, you should have kept your legs closed pants on!

Fawk you people who say FML! You are retaahhhhded!!!!!!!!

The End.
