Random Tid Bits

  1. This week we'll talk about my flaws. We all have them. I get then and than mixed up. The more I think about those two words, the more confused I get about them. 

  2. I'm HORRIBLE with directions. Last week I went downtown to a play. It should have been fun. All I could think about was, What if I get lost? What if I can't find a spot to park? What if I can't find my car afterwards? By the way I got there just fine! The other was to a graduation for my work. No one seemed to know where it was at. I got there fine to. I was feeling anxious all week. I told the Director of the college, "See this is why I don't schedule very many field trips. If I can't get places, how in the heck to I give my students good directions in getting from point A to point B?" I really need to get out more.

    I'm so glad my husband rocks with directions. Although I do have to say that once I know where I'm going I'm better with getting places than he is. He goes in a lane that has a big utility vehicle in it, or the lane where everyone slows down to get on the interstate when we don't have to, and sometimes he takes a scenic route just because he forgets where we are going entirely. 

  3. I don't wear very much makeup, I'm not a girl that paints my nails, and I let my hair go natural. I have frosted grey highlights.  I don't know if all this is bad. It's just me. In fact I get complimented on my grey hair because it's so even.

  4. I'm not sympathetic when it comes to my kids getting shots. Is that bad? Some moms put on Facebook, "My poor son got his shots today. It melted my heart!" I think, Well it's better than getting Polio, Meningitis, Chicken Pox which isn't too bad, but leads to Shingles, which is horrible, Whopping Cough, Measles, and more. Suck it up they cried for less than 5 minutes. If they got something horrible they could be dead. I have that same conversation with both my boys when we're walking into the doctor's office when they are about to get a shot. They understand how serious things can get with illnesses. I also remind them of how I got allergy shots once a week when I was their ages. Yes I hid, but I neglect to tell them that part. 

  5. On the opposite of my pro vaccinations, I have my doubts about them to. Like, hummmm...what's in them? In that aspect I wish I knew what they are injecting in my boys. The government lets all kinds of crap in our food, and skin products, maybe they do the same with our vaccinations. Do you ever think about this? My mom had Polio, and Isaak had Meningitis, so my pro shots way over powers my anti shots. Trust me you don't want to get one of those things!

  6. Lastly I find myself in the middle of most things. I blame this on being a middle child. I grew up in the middle of my difficult older sister (whom I shared a room with) and my parents. I was in the middle of my oldest sister and my youngest sister. I usually try and see things from more than one side. Kind of a Cubistic approach. You'd think that many people would like that I do that. I'm trying to understand them, and their situation. Really it ends up pissing people off. They want me to choose them and their situation. When I bring up the other side to what they think is wrong, or right they automatically think I'm against them. I'm not. I'm just trying to make them see the light to what else is out there.  I'm trying to open their perspective so to speak. The way I describe my views on vaccinations is how I think about most things. I think about the pros and the cons. I have a mixed thought on them in the end. I make a stand on the side that makes more since to me.

SUCH terrible faults....only not so much, lol.
Sympathy for vaccinations? I'm with you on that, plus it seems that the more 'sympathy' a child gets the more upset they become. Probably because that clues them in that something 'terrible' is about to happen.
Face it, you're stuck with being a good person. My sympathies? Hehe.

Chris is horrible directions. Horrible!!! We joke about it, but that guy could seriously get lost pulling out of our driveway! I have an awesome sense of direction, so it all works out.

well..I just came back from the pediatrics and both my kids got shots today..they're of course crying but I do believe it will be beneficial for them at some points. We just did the blood works as well and kiddos are immune to some horrible disease thanks to their vaccinations :)...

I get paranoid because I am so bad with directions. I stress out Jason because when I get lost, I freak out, then I call him screaming lol. Poor guy. Just yesterday he was like "Going x way is faster to the gym. I just gave you directions the other way because it's a straight shot. I know how you get if you get lost" hahah.

Vaccinations, I do question a lot of them. I was so PISSED to find out that the Guardisil that my doctor and all the health people pushed on my daughter was not needed. When the maker came clean that that vaccine was a money making scam, and the strain of HPV that it was to protect against would have died off on its own if contracted, I was so furious. Those shots were very painful for my daughter (3 of them) and left her achy and sore for days after each one. Now, unless it is requested by the school, we aren't getting them.

I am with you on the shots..
all the way ... although i do feel bad when he gets them, like the whole "I wish I could take his pain away for him" but he gets over it pretty quickly and its good to go :)
The getting lost... I am the same way... If I am with broxton, i get nervous... if it is just me, not so much... but now that I use the waze app (remember I blogged about it) I am always good to go. I really do like it :)

When I was younger, no one questioned the childrens shots. Now, we are a little smarter and do wonder what goes into them.
