I was thinking of cutting the grass in the yard!!
Where did you get that idea?



I hate it when after a long days work that I still need to even mow the grass..I have 2 perfectly healthy (albeit out of shape and way overweight)But they could still open the garage pull our the Lawn mower, fire it up and 10 minutes later they are done...They would have plenty of time to water the garden (it's their seeds and plants),...but instead they need to hurry up and cozy up to their computers and do what ever pops into their heads...Then they tell me to drive them both to the stores and to hurry before they close, when all I want to do is make something to eat and lay down...Yeah, I hate all of this...

I hate it when I thought I picked up Panko bread crumbs at the grocery store, only to find out I picked up Plain bread crumbs.

I hate going to the grocery store and picking up a couple cans of tuna and getting home and putting it away with the other ten cans I bought when I thought we didn't have any.


Oh, I forgot the eggs.

Isn't it amazing? You can buy 67 items and not have what you need for that night's dinner.

I finally bought narrow racks for inside the pantry door for my spices so I didn't end up with six jars of rosemary and no garlic powder. It's amazing, I have over 40 spices. And they're in alphabetical order!

My kids say I'm anal, and they're probably right. So what? I have six drawers of files. I have one of those things like in post offices to put letters, etc. in with 12 slots in my office. And three good-sized organize thingies. All in my office except for two file drawers that I use as a night stand.

Must be the winner of the Darwin Parent of the Year Award. I have known parents to also say about their underage kids "I don't mind if they drink/smoke weed as long as they do it at home so I know where they are at". Wow, great parenting skills, and wonderful role models. /eye roll/

Yeah, I know. I had a coupon for something that was free. When I got that there was a coupon for a larger package, but half off. I quit at that point.

I just happened to be crusin around some posts we did earlier this year, and this reminded me of something. When I got my MBA (I was 47 and worked my butt off, worked a full time and part time job..but got a 4.0), when we were sitting getting ready to go onstage to receive our diplomas, I was the last in line for the MBA'ers. There was a girl sitting next to me who was getting an Assoc. degree in something or other....they called her onstage and gave her this HUGE award and $$ for school because she "overcame" an adversity.
She was in a Sea-Doo accident...ran into a concrete pier. Broke many bones, but she still finished school. Sounds great huh? When we all sat back in our seats she said to me..."not bad considering I was drunk and high as hell when this happened". I am totally sure the school didn't know this.
Why? Someone tell me WHY?????
