Youngerspawn And Upcoming Field Trip

In a couple of weeks, youngerspawn gets to ride on a train and go to a park to play and have activites for his fieldtrip. This time I get to chaperone and plan on going with him. They didn't take any chaperone's on Elderspawn's fieldtrip. Bummer. I really would have liked to gone to Medeival Times again. It's been years since the first time I was there.

Hopefully it won't rain the day of the fieldtrip. YS is really looking forward to riding on a train for the first time!

*Crossing fingers*

Elderspawn And His Fieldtrip

ES and all of the other 6th graders from his school got to go on a fieldtrip to Medieval Times.

This morning I had told him about the show that they put on there such as jousting on horseback, sword fighting, etc.

Now, having gone to many reinactments with his dad, I figured this would be something he would really enjoy.

Yeah, not so much. Seems that they no longer include a beverage with the meal that was $21.00, a reduced rate because they had a fundraiser for this trip. You have to pay for the drinks seperately. Mom didn't know this, didn't send money with him and he ended up having to drink a bottle of water instead.

The announcer was way too loud for his taste. He said he was screaming over the microphone. But you have to be loud for everyone in the audience to hear you, right?

As for the show, well it wasn't "educational" enough for him. I had told him this morning that it was just a show and it was for fun.

Welp, so much for Medeival Times and Elderspawn! Next.

Updates On The Spawn

Youngerspawn ended up getting glasses. Seems he's far sighted, has astigmatism and his right eye is turning inward. His distance vision is 20/100 in his right eye and 20/200 in his left. Worse than I had thought. He got his glasses with transitioning lenses however they aren't dark enough for him when he goes outside so I have to take him back in and have more tinting put in them and have them readjusted because he says they hurt the back of his ear.

Both spawn visited the dentist today and that was even worse news. You see neither one of them takes the best care of their teeth and rarely bother to brush them even though mom hounds them to do it at least twice a day (I'm really anal about nice, clean, teeth).

Youngerspawn, who still has all baby teeth, has 3 cavities on the left side and has to have them filled. Why, I don't know, but they're going to fill his baby teeth.

Elderspawn, who has many permanent teeth, has 4 cavities, 2 on each side, all in permanent teeth. One is so bad it's down to the nerve and he may have to have a root canal. Bad news - insurance doesn't cover root canals. They only cover exams, cleanings, fillings and extractions.

Lovely, just freakin' lovely. I really don't want to have to have it yanked out. It's one of his back teeth. He needs them.

Oh, and Elderspawn still has one of the cavity filled baby teeth that hasn't fallen out yet. That may have to be yanked out as well.

I just hope the whole ordeal of having to have shots of novacaine, teeth drilled out, filled, extractions or a possible root canal will teach the two of them to take better care of their teeth. Neither one of them believe me when I tell them that their teeth are going to rot out of their jaws if they don't brush them regularly.

Why won't kids listen to their parents!!??!!

My New Motto

Beauty Tip Of The Day. I like it alot.

All humans are beautiful.
Only behavior makes one ugly."

Wide Awake

Ever since the flickering of that flaslight, in my eyes, in the middle of the night, during a really bad thunderstorm, followed by a roaring KABOOM echoeing through the room, and ending in loud meniacal laughter I seem to be petrified of thunderstorms.


Yet, I still wonder why???

Losin' Love

Roses, what have I done to lose you as a follower? Please tell me. I have very few to begin with and it bothers me to see you leave and not know why.

Idiots Around Me

Remember what I said in my last post about putting up and shutting up about some people I could live without in my neighborhood? Forget what I said about that!

Why you may ask? Well, some stupid friggen idiot lets her 3 or 4 year old little girl run out in front of moving vechicles.

My mom and I were heading back from the store across the street when this little girl ran right in front of my mom's car from behind a car parked on the road. My mom saw her in the nick of time to slam the brakes and have the little girl about 6 inches or less from her front bumper. The girl froze in her tracks, threw her arms in the air, closed her eyes and let out a scream.

The mother's reaction? She just stood there and never bothered to say a single word to her. The neighbor, who this little girl was coming from, again, just stood there and said nothing.

Well, we got to my place, I got out of the car, walked into the middle of the road and screamed at the time of my lungs that they need to watch their kids better than what they do otherwise they'll get smashed! Needless to say, I sure did get the attention of the four boys across the street from me who were playing basketball at the time. They stopped dead in their tracks while staring at me and were so quiet you could hear a pin drop. It worked on them! I'm sure everyone in that mobile home park heard me and stopped dead in their tracks, except that mother.

Now, if it were my kid, I'd be screaming bloody murder him to stop because a car is coming and he's about to become road kill. But then again, I've taught my kids how NOT to play in traffic cuz the chicken never wins cuz the moving vechicle outweighs him and can outrun him no matter what.

My Perspective-Through My Eyes

To Graumagus: No password protection needed here. I'm an open book.

When I started this blog, it was supposed to be a fun outlet to me. Random crap that popped in my mind at any given time was posted. Most of it was pretty stupid stuff, I admit it, because I was so exhausted and stressed out all the time it's all my mind could come up with. That's why I chose to delete it when I restarted my blog.

Now, my posts are sporadic and I could careless if I post or not. Only when I really need to say something or something strikes my fancy or when I can find the time to sit down and write do I post. Being a single mom takes up most of time time nowadays anyways.

A quarter of the stress in my life is gone. Another quarter will be gone when things are finalized finally. Yeah, I've actually put a little weight back on. I badly needed it and I need more.

Another quarter has to do with the boys' medical problems worsening, having to get them taken care of and dealing with my cut in hours as well. Many people are getting their hours cut nowadays. It sucks big time.

The other quarter, well, I'll just have to deal with it. That won't go away for a long, long time. I won't get into that part right now. I may post about it. I may not. We'll see how things go from here on out.

To be perfectly honest with ya'll, I've never been more content and happy to be in my own home than I have been in years. I enjoy being home for a change. Of course a mobile home isn't some people's idea of a home, but, it's home to me. But there are a few people around here I could live without but you can get that anywhere you live. You just shut up and put up I guess.

Yeah, I've actually put a little weight back on. I badly needed it and I need more. I was down to 105 pounds and a measily size 4 jeans. I looked sick and gaunt. I'm starting to look better at 117 pounds. I'd like to be around 125 pounds again. I felt and looked healthy then. I'm slowly getting there and hope to be back there soon!

Laugh For The Day

Seems my ex wants to start up a blog war about our impending divorce. Hell, I didn't even know that his blog was back up and he's starting a war with me!?! The least he could have done was invite me to join his war. I'd be happy join if that's the way he prefers things to be. I've bit my tongue for WAY too long and could stand to get few things off my chest as well.

Does he really have to bring my family into this? How about his family? Does he really want to go there? I'll go there if he wishes!

Honestly, all his blog looks like to me is one big porn site!
