Twelve Kinds of Crazy

It occurs to me that we are all just milling through life, one step at a time. On any given day we are either way up high, or lower than low. Facing one little crisis after another, and trying to make our way. Ever just want to lay down? Maybe in the...

What Do We GIVE the Children?

It is time to face the facts. We are in a brand new world, shiny and bleeping with new toys to play with. iPad2's and Galaxy phones, attention seekers and yes we give it our attention. We are so tuned in to social media and texting,  that we have lost...

Teetering

I have been meandering in and out of Thoughts for a couple of weeks, and have come to the conclusion that I miss this place. Last week I came on and found hundreds of private messages that I deleted long ago, this frustrated me. I set about deleting...

I'm Behind The Times...

So it turns out that most people in my family think that taking a pic of a womans Assets in public is not a bad idea at all. RJ (my husband) says men do it all the time at his place of work, though he denies ever having done it. I of course have never...

2 months ago....

So it has been a while since I posted on Thoughts.com, 2 months to be exact. When the place made the dramatic change over, I just stopped visiting. Too busy at the moment to even try to deal, I just let it go. Now though, I feel the need to drift back...

Dear Sunshine...

Today I am sad for you, and I wanted to write you a letter to help you cope. I want to fix this for you, but I can not. Watching someone you love so much cry in total devastation is one of the hardest parts of being a mother. As a mother, I want to...

Temporary Me....

It strikes me as strange that people want to hang on to other people for dear life. If a man wants to be let go, by all means LET HIM GO! Do not lower yourself to a floor mat status to keep him. Do not let him lie and cheat on you, then take him back...

Angry Again!! :/

Just going over the story about a 21 month old boy drowning in his mother's washing machine, whilst she read a magazine some 30 feet away. WHAT?? Who is she trying to kid? First of all washing machines are meant to be ran with the lid closed. Who...

The procrastinator in me...

In my mind I have this running list of things that need to be done. In my mind I also have this all powerful idea that eventually I will get to every little thing that is on my list, and some day it will all be done. I am beginning to realize that...

Well there all that is...

If you are married to a MAN, you are going to understand this post. If You are a MAN, kindly exit left. Go now, because I am going to write bad things about men, and nothing you can say will change it. Okay then, you were warned.   I've been...

So I am AGAINST...

Mothers hitting their children. Fathers hitting their children. Teachers hitting their students. Mothers hitting fathers. Father hitting mothers. Anyone hitting an elderly person. Anyone hitting an animal. Violence is not...

A NEW Lease on Life!!

Friday I had my semi-annual breast check up with mammograms and ultrasounds. It is an unnerving event for me every time. This time the test results were normal. Can we say WOOT? RJ was in the waiting room holding his breath the entire time, bless him....

Here We Go...AGAIN..

Tomorrow at noon I go for my breast check up at the breast center. I've put it out of my mind until now, just not concentrating on it at all. Now,  I'm starting to get a little anxious about it, though I am sure things will check out okay. My last...

I AM SO ANGRY...

So this TrayVon Martin case in Florida is causing a stir, even in my life. I am so very tired of everyone suggesting that this boy was expendable. None of our children are expendable. He was 17, and though he was a big, tall boy who had played...

Just Ludicrous....

So Sunshine who is 24 has been living in a town about an hour from our home. She has been happy for the most part, though she has had one situation after another with her roommates. See they are all boys, and she is the only girl. They are all just...

Crazy...

So yesterday was a little too crazy for me. I need a quite, calm Wednesday. It hasn't started out that way, and I'm getting a little worried. My normal 7 a.m. children did not arrive on time. One texted me that she would be here shortly, only to get...

Loving my Job...

Right now in the daycare I have 3 two year olds. One boy and two little girls. I have 2 three year olds, a boy and girl.  2 four year olds, both boys. They are all a trip. They keep me on my toes, and keep me laughing. The children arrive at 7 and do...

Are you for real?

Thirty years into this relationship, and we still have the same arguments we always have had. I think some things should be unspoken. Take mice for instance. Now maybe I am a wimp, and taking a step back for women's lib, but I think men should have to...

Calling All Angels...

Please re-post this on thoughts, fb and any other forum you are a member of. Help me raise awareness for this cause. Do it for all the INVISIBLE CHILDREN and for the visible children in our country.   Thank you so much!!   ...

Tornado pics..from my deck.

Taken from my back deck this evening around 6 p.m...   We are fine! These storms both went off to the right and dissipated. Some wind, a little lightening and a few drops of rain. Some areas near me were hit, and had massive damage....

Thinking Back...

I was thinking back to my childhood and the things we had, compared to what we have now. My how times have changed. I'd say as a very young child the biggest difference would be the remote control. We were summonsed from anywhere in the household to...

Sh*t on a Cracker...

Today I feel like Sh*t on a Cracker. Ever felt that way? Not that I have any room to complain, many people have it worse. I just have Spring allergies. Now I love the Spring part, but the allergy part needs to take a hike. I have had this for a good...
