Random Tid Bits

I'm thinking this is going to be very random this week. My mind is all over the place.
  1. I have 2 summer classes - 1 before surgery and 1 after. They are only 5 days of make up because the students missed too many credit hours. I've taught the the classes and the students before. It should be easy. 

  2. Mica's in a crazy annoying stage right now. I don't believe parents should have favorites, but let's face it - kids go through phases that are annoying at times. For the record I love Mica! He's a great kid.

    I remember when Mica, and Isaak soon after him went through the phase of scream crying when we left Grandma and Grandpa's house. Why? Because I had to put their shoes on + the TV was taken away. We just don't have the TV running all the time at our house. It was a big deal to have it taken away. I tried to have them turn it off a 1/2 hour before we got there, but that only lasted a week. That was around the age of 4. I still loved them when they went through that, but man I hated the power crying! I pushed through it by asking them nicely to do the things I needed them to do, then I grabbed them to shove their shoes on, and carried them football style into the car, I drove a block away with them screaming, stopped the car and said, "I won't drive until you stop that." They shut up.

    Apparently around the age of 11 or 12 there's a stage of being a no it all, not listening, saying and doing goofy things when you think you're really cool. I'm sure teenage years are worse. I am thankful that he's one of the better kids. 

  3. I thought this text (featured below) was super funny! I would so laugh if that was Travis sending me a text considering that I'm about to have plastic surgery. Nope I don't wear very much makeup. Travis does tell me with the little makeup that I do wear, "You don't need makeup!" 

  4. My co-worker has been so bitchy. When I talk about what all I have to do he grumbles, "Well you don't have to rework a class." No! But I do have to present at the Inservice, when he doesn't. He grumps about there being too many exercises in first year. Well they have to learn the programs before they can dive in to create things. He complains about the bossman giving him work to do. He gives me odd projects to do as well. He's just bitchy lately.

  5. Do you ever test people on social media? I post cat videos and memes to those I know like that sort of thing. A few people have been disliking certain things I post. I often wonder why? I know I'm a very open person, and that may rub certain people wrong. I also have a very odd sense of humor. I like the movie Pulp Fiction and the illustrators Joe Sorren and Edward Gorey if that tells you anything. I like to be myself. When someone dislikes my personality - sorry, not sorry. Back to the testing: If I post CUTE things, the same people that dislike posts always love those posts.

    I put up that text image above. I said to Travis talking about the few dislikers, "They'll dislike it because it's not nice." They clicked the like and laughing face. They must like when I make fun of myself. That's hilarious!!!

I know that age you speak of. ;) Thankfully they outgrow it and become sweet again... once the teen years have passed, hahahahhahaa :)

Good luck with your class, and your surgery!

I think the ages leading up to the teen years are the worst. Once they hit 12 to 13, they are so much easier to handle. Maraiah and I butted heads forever. Then, once she was in her teens, the attitude stopped magically. Allison wasn't as bad, but whiny a lot. She still gets pissy from time to time (I chalk it up to PMS) but for the most part, she's low key these days. I love it when they get older!

Pulp Fiction is my kind of humor too. Jason and I watch it every Christmas Eve. How's that for messed up humor lol

That text is hillarious hehehe. I love make up although not that much. All the best for the surgery and speedy recovery afterwards.

I wish I cared less about my social media posts being liked. I know I shouldn't care, but I do. At least a little. And, unfortunately, I also care what others post on social media. Especially with regards to politics, equality, sexism, etc… When people praised that candidate for hitting the reporter and breaking his glasses? Those kinds of people, and the fact that I know some that would praise that, makes me sick. :( But do you unfriend family and friends? Or do you lead by example?

It would be funny for you to get that text from your husband. Mostly because you are having surgery anyway! :)

@Mandy 'n' Justin I rarely unfriend people. It makes me sad when people unfriend me. When they post things I don't like I'll either speak my mind, or move on. Most of the time I feel like it's a loosing battle with people that disagree with me. I try and see things from all sides - like Picasso would in the Cubistic movement. It's hard when someone is religious, but hates certain groups of people, is welcoming with some, but not with others. I'd think that Jesus would accept anyone.

I have never unfriended someone because of a post. I personally think that is stupid.
My cousin and aunt and uncle unfriended me... because I spoke my mind about people being slack in their relationships and they took it personal. Ha ha. guess they were guilty!
