A Red Letter Day

Well, today is our 35th anniversary.  I can hardly believe it's been that long.  Where has the time gone?  We started out as a couple of  idiots who didn't know the first thing about being married even though one of us had been married  before.  We raised our kids to be fine adults and those years in between flew by with school, activities and family celebrations.
Now we're not such idiots as we used to be.  We know how to be married and it only took us 35 years.
So in celebration today, we are going to participate in today's holiday, National Nude Day.......just kidding.  It is the kick off for National Nude Sports Week.  No kidding.  I'm having a hard time deciding what sport I would like to do.  Nude bowling?   Nude water skiing?  Well, I have all week to decide.
Oh and BTW, happy anniversary, honey.

Oh Those Commercials Again

There have been a few commercials lately that represent children in kind of ugly ways.  Girls usually.
The first example is this little chicklet on the train.  She hypnotizes the guy with a chip until she slams his head against the window.  Then she looks self satisfied.  Wowza, that mom is in for world of hurt.  Pardon the pun, but the kid is already out of control.  I mean, who does that?
Then there is the girl who screams at the top of her lungs at her brother when he dumps his Legos.  MOM HAS A HEADACHE she bellows but mom pops up off the couch and says her headache is gone.  All I can think is no way, Lady, your headache is just beginning.  The kid is a brat.  Plus, you're going to have to pick up all those Legos. Have fun when she's 13.
Finally, there is the frugal family saving up for the opt out plan for their cable television and internet.  They take their kid's lunch money as she comes in the door but after the coach assures them there is no need, the kid picks up all the jars and saunters off with them and the money.  Was it all her lunch money in there? I hope so because she sure seemed to feel justified in taking it.  The parents just sat there so maybe it was.  I'm afraid they have problems in their future with that one. Grand larceny, anyone?
Don't get me wrong.  I want girls to be assertive.  I don't want parents to lie around on the couch or steal their child's lunch money.  I just hate to see little kids portrayed as demons.  That's all.

OMG!!!

I got asked out on a date today.  OK,it was some old guy but I can't remember the last time someone asked me out!  He even offered to pay for my purchase.  Of course, I had to decline and I told him I was already married and he said it was ok because he was married too!  Then I said we should double date.  We both laughed, the cashier laughed and wouldn't that be a cute ending to the story?
Well, it is me so of course that isn't the end.  The guy went on to say how his wife is trying to get rid of him and he can't find a woman who wants him.  Then when the cashier asked him to step aside so I could swipe my card, he sighed and said just like his wife, she told him to get out of the way.
This was quickly becoming a train wreck so I said thanks and got to the door of the store as fast as I could! That is how my story ends.

No Good Deed

I recently read a book about a man who did good things for others just out of the goodness of his heart.  He was well known and loved in his small town where almost everyone knew him or of him.
So, I thought I'd do some good deeds today.  I don't get to see that many people so I kept my eyes peeled for anyone who might need help.
Well, at the grocery store, the clerk was having a bad time getting things in my cooler bag because the lid kept falling on her.  I said I'd help her and she said no, that's ok but it fell again so I held it and she said in a really mean voice I said I could do it. Oh, ok..........so much for that good deed.
Then I went to the garden center.  I took a long time picking out flowers and just as I got to the register another woman came up too.  The cashier was helping someone else and when he was done, I said to the woman, you can go first.   You look like you just have a question.(because she didn't have any flowers) and she says, NO! YOU were first.  Oh, ok.............
So there you have it.  My good deeds for the day.  They fell flat and luckily I won't see anyone else today except my family.  I do good deeds for them all the time and that will have to do.  I'm done with strangers for today.

While I was Gone

I haven't posted for quite some time.  I guess I just ran out of energy for a while there.  Maintaining two blogs isn't as easy as I thought it would be.

I have learned some things while I was gone.  The first thing is don't ever waterboard yourself in the shower.  I kinda did and it was most unpleasant.  I really hope that when the government said we didn't do it they were telling the truth because I wouldn't want it to happen to anyone.  That being said, one should never ever waterboard one's self.  Trust me.
I also got hooked on those online quizzes that come up on your Facebook news feed.  Now those are a lot of fun and I learned something very important.  I am my own best friend.  No kidding.  I took a test to find out what Disney princess I was and it turned out I was Aurora.(Sleeping Beauty)
Then I took a test on which Disney princess should be my best friend and it turned out to be Aurora.  Hey, that's me.  Hence, I am my own best friend.
Here I am remembering that I am my own best friend and here I am overjoyed at the news.
