Ranom Tid Bits

  1. My birthday, Father's Day, and the first day of summer all happen on the same day this year. I'm going out for breakfast with my sister's, mom and dad on Saturday to celebrate my birthday and Father's Day. Then on the 21st we'll stop by to see my dad more than likely, we're going to Jurassic World, and going out to Olive Garden for dinner.

    When Travis told me about Father's Day landing on my birthday I teased him and said, "I guess we'll have to figure out which one is more important to celebrate that." He's like, "What?" I was only kidding. I think Jurassic World and Olive Garden will make everyone happy. The boys hardly get scared with movies. It's not like I let them watch horror flicks. I don't need to worry about them getting freaked out with a little Jurassic madness.

  2.  One night this week we picked a lot of peas. Travis planted them, so it was our job to pick them. I didn't realize he made an agreement with the neighbors that they could have a bag of peas if they let their lawn guy know not to weed eat the fence. Once I picked them we had to take them all out of the pods. It took all evening.

    Maybe this sounds selfish of me, but I wasn't happy to share them. Part of me wanted to go to the store, buy them a bag of peas and say, "Here's your bag of peas." At least I wouldn't have spent tons of time on those. It would be one thing if we were really close to them. We're not. All the sudden I sounded like a selfish bit_h.
    I'm all for sharing with my friends, family and co-workers. I've given a ton of homemade jam to people in the past. I make people cookies. They scratch my back, and I scratch theirs. I have acted good towards strangers. I let people go in front of me in line a lot, and put carts away that are randomly in the parking lot. Letting people go in front of me, and putting carts away doesn't take all evening. Not to mention all the time it took to plant those suckers. Overall I'm not a person that likes to share. I always hated as a kid to let my sister pick at my food when we went out to eat (she always does that). I dislike going in on gifts because sometimes I don't get paid back. I'd rather just go get someone something on my own. I love trying to find the perfect gift for a kid. Are you a person that likes to share?

  3. Speaking of jam I'm disappointed in our June Berries this year. I usually pick 4 quart bags full of them. This year I didn't even get 1 full one. I think berries don't do well with a ton of rain. We've had a lot of that this year.

  4. I'm getting my hair cut today. YAY! I like my hair shortish, but Travis likes it longer. It's my birthday weekend, so I'm cutting it. 

  5. Isaak and Mica are still enjoying their fun summer school. I'm really glad we signed them up for it. They love their classes, and argue with me about how it isn't school. It's too fun to be school I guess. They have pretty full classes except for 1 of Mica's. There's only Mica and 1 other kid in one of his classes.

I hate shelling peas. I had to do that when I was a kid. Maybe things like that are why I don't garden.

I don't know how I feel about sharing. Never really have the chance to do so. I don't think I would be much for it though.

Why didn't you give him a bag of unshelled peas? That's what I would have done lol. I don't mind sharing if it isn't going to cause me a ton of work in the process.

I remember having to take peas out of their shells when I was a kid. It definitely is time-consuming. I don't normally mind sharing but, like you, I don't like to go in on gifts. I like looking for a gift myself and presenting it myself. Hope you have a great birthday! I want to see Jurassic World but probably will when it comes out on DVD.

Harry Flashman said...

Happy Birthday! Had to come back today to wish you well.

Happy Birthday, A!

Hope you are having a great birthday! Let me know what you think about Jurassic World! We loved it.

Eat To Live said...

Happy Birthday!! So you are a summer baby.
Glad to hear the kids like their summer classes. All is good when they can have fun and learn.

I like to share but after a certain time when people don't appreciate the effort etc, I do tend to do less of it or stop all together. I think that came with getting older. I think I would have given the neighbor unshelled peas instead of shelled.

About two weeks ago I had my hair cut shorter too. It's just easier for me to dry. Hope you like it!
