Target Guy

Dear Target Check-out Guy,
  Thank you for making me smile. I was having a pretty blah day until I came to your register.
Nothing bad happened. Nothing particularly good either. Just a regular ol' Thursday. But you made me smile. With your funny humor and friendly personality you made me laugh. It was quite refreshing to have such a cheerful check out person. Usually check out people are OK, just there to do their job, but you went over and above being polite. From now on I will look to see if you are assigned to a register and wait in your line, even if it is 10 people long. Thanks for the pleasant check out experience! (were so cute too!)

Now Happy Target Customer

My Brain is Clutter-fied!

Ever feel like you just have way too much going on or to do all at one time? Like you need to get it all done but can't focus on just one thing? That's me. Today. I'm usually a pretty organized person but today I just can't seem to get a hold of it. I feel like my mind is racing "a mile a minute". I have so much to do but other things keep grabbing my attention (like the idea for this post, that I just HAD to stop working on what I was doing to write!) I feel so hyper and jittery. Maybe that's the issue. I'm trying to do it all at once and get it done... Maybe after lunch, a nice break, I will be able to come in, sit down and refocus. Ha! As if. I have so many posts/blogs I need want to catch up on. I have so many things circling my brain that I want to write instead of this paperwork sitting in front of me. I have been failing at the weekly link ups that I usually try to make sure I do. There's also new ones I want to start...Maybe this afternoon...Or night....Midnight....I don't know!

So yeah, my brain is clutter-fied!!!!

Saw Green Lantern

So last night I took a late trip to the movies. Haven't been to the movies since I took Miss Priss to see Tangled. At 10pm on a Monday night, the movie choices are pretty limited. By default I saw Green Lantern. Didn't really know much about it other than it was based off of a comic book. 
I was willing to give it a chance though.

When it first started I was like "Oh, it's all Sci-Fi crap with people dressed as weird Aliens. This is gonna suck!". I had no idea that Ryan Reynolds was in it and the lead guy. YUM! Love him. It started off slow, but then got kinda funny. Really cheesy movie in my opinion. I didn't hate it, but it's not one I'd buy when it comes out on DVD. A lot of people think it's ok for children to see, but I'm not sure I'd take my year old daughter to see it. It only has a few semi nude scenes but has some foul language. Take those out and it would totally be a kid movie

Seriously guys?? WTF!

What is it with guys these days? Seems like every guy I meet or even start to talk to is obsessed with sex! I mean HELLOOOO I'm not going to jump in bed with you after 5 minutes or talking to you for a couple of days. I'm NOT like that. When they realize this, off they go... If they are interested in only getting sex, why bother talking to me? Just join one of those sex line things and leave me be. I have had the worst luck with dating for a while now. I want a friend, a companion, not a booty call! I want someone to hang out with, watch movies with, talk to, just relax with. Someone I can call up and say "Hey, wanna run to the store with me?" OR "Wanna go grab a bite to eat?".  Not someone that expects to get "down and dirty" every minute we are near each other! GAH! If that was all I wanted then I wouldn't even bother to get to know anything about him.

Seems like if I talk to a guy for a day or two, they expect things to get physical right then. Do I have "tramp" stamped on my forehead? NO! I mean one guy told me "Girls are like buying  a car. Gotta test drive before you buy." WTF! That was the end of that conversation!

Or if I don't drop everything to go out with a guy they are like "Your not into me are you?" HELLO I have a kid, a life! I can't just run when someone says go. Not even if I wanted to. I'm not a dog that will come when called. Plus I have to find a sitter, make plans, etc....

Is it just me or is the whole dating thing just awkward?!

Song of the Day

Really feeling this song today... Not usually into Country but it popped up on Pandora this morning and it kinda hit... Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

I’m through with doubt
There’s nothing left for me to figure out
I’ve paid a price
And I’ll keep paying

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I know you said
Can’t you just get over it
It turned my whole world around
And I kind of like it

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby
With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’
It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger
And how in the world can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they’d write me a letter
Sayin’ that I better shut up and sing
Or my life will be over

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

What it is you think I should

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

Maybe One Day

So I have typed and written several personal posts 
but just haven't been able to bring myself to post them.
 I'm not sure why. I mean who cares. 
It's not like I'm shouting it to the whole world.
 I don't know.
 All of the advice I have read or been giving about having a successful blog 
says that you should post about personal things. 
Maybe these are just too personal? 
Maybe stuff no one really needs to know?
Or wants to know?
 I don't want someone to read them and be like
 "Aw I'm so sorry that happened or you had to go through that". 
I don't want sympathy.
 I guess most importantly I just don't want to be judged.
 I have made many stupid mistakes and done some stupid things in my life.
 I try not to regret anything but to learn from it.
 To never do it again. 
One particular post is how I continuously repeated a viscous cycle for many, many years. 
I'm not even sure if I have broken it to this day...
Maybe one day.

wee bit 'bout me

{one} how many times have you been a bridesmaid/maid of honor?
Been in a few weddings but a bridesmaid maybe twice

play on my phone until my eyes get heavy

I don't remember ever really wanting to be something in specific other than a mommy.

{six} what are 3 things your dream home would have that you don’t currently have?
I big, deep porch. With pillars and a swing. Deep enough to sit on when it rains and not get wet. 
A big jacuzzi tub!  A breakfast/bar counter, whatever it's called. Where you can sit on one side and use the other side for food prep or whatever.

{seven} what’s for dinner tonight?
Never know until the end of the day...

{eight} if someone stopped by your house unannounced on a typical Saturday night, what would they find you doing?

Is it a boy or girl?

PHOTO: Storm in red, gets a cuddle from his older brother Jazz.
 Genderless Baby?
This is so weird! Saw this on Facebook this morning and was like "WHAT!" 
Isn't the most exciting part of having a baby finding out the gender and buying all the cutesy pink or blue things??Announcing to the family and friends what your having??
I mean I understand wanting to raise a child without the gender stereotypes but is it going to harm the child in the long run? Is this merely a way for the parents to get nation wide attention? Their "15 minutes in the spotlight"? And why did they start with their 3rd child? To top it all off these parents believe in unschooling.
When this child gets a little bit older, what will he or she wear, play with, identify with? Do they give the child some of everything or just gender neutral clothes/toys? Are these parents letting this child someday choose which sex he or she would like to live with? 
Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to judge these people or their decisions. 
I mean it is their child whom they can raise as they wish, but why this way? 
This just blows my mind. 
How do they plan on keeping this a secret? 
Eventually it will come out. 
I believe this child will be totally confused and ridiculed as he/she gets older. 
I'm sorry, it's just strange...

Today is a new day.
Sure yesterday wasn't all that great.
But the best thing about it?
Getting to wake up to a fresh start this morning.
All of the mistakes/problems from yesterday
Are lessons learned and options for me to
find different or better ways to do these things.
So I will hold my head up today.
I will not let the small things get to me.
I will be positive and refocus my negative energy into something positive.
Sure it's easy to sit here and think about oh how horrible that was, why me?
But I will not do that. Not today. A mistake is a lesson learned.
I mean I could have it so much worse. There has been so much devastation
touching so many lives lately. I am grateful and thankful that my family and I are OK.
Could one person really ask for more?
