Some People’s Kids….

I have had a horrible past couple days. The Ex MIL will be here tomorrow afternoon and my cat went into heat (yuuuuuuuuuck), my dog keeps digging in the garbage, my kid has a cold, and my husband lovingly put my giant thing of fabric softener on top of my dryer… which my cat apparently thought was sexy, rubbed on it, and then it dumped all over the floor… three days later I see a “ectoplasm” of blue oozing from under my dryer… That was a treat to clean up.

As for today, I have completed all but one assignment due for the next week, cleaned my house best as I could with my kiddo running around destroying it behind me, and just wanted to go get some soda and a candy bar when my husband got home, ya know. To get out of the house for a few minutes.

As I’m driving along listening to techno slowly regaining my sanity, I come across a large group of kids and 1 (supposed) adult. These kids were all on bikes, just riding down the middle of the street. There is a car coming from the opposite direction, and they still wont move. They see us, but slowly weeve in and out of the road, paddling as slowly as you can without tipping over their bike, by the time the woman and I could make out eachothers faces, we locked eyes and just shook our heads at eachother out of frustration.

My question is, wtf is wrong with parents now that these kids don’t know common curteousy… or even safety? You don’t ride your bike in the middle of the damn street, especially when a car is coming. It drives me nuts…

Here’s two more examples:

We have new neighbors across the street. Nice Army dude with 3 kids and his wife. The girls are 5 and 7, and I’m not sure how old the boy is… I’m guessing 6 or 8.
These girls come over to my yard constantly. They climb the plumeria tree, which is fine it’s out by the road, but then they come up to my porch when I’m in my living room, and just stare in my sliding glass door. Uh, Personal space please? And frigging CREEPY. I’m fine if they want to play with my kiddo, but they gotta go to the front door and ask, not come up on my porch and stare in my windows until I shoo them off. They did it again today after I already told them baby girl couldn’t come out and play since she had a cold (and it was rather chilly out), but their mommy caught them and ripped them a new one. I didn’t see them for the rest of the day.

Second example: There is this group of kids that run around the neighborhood, ranging from I’m guessing 5 or 6 to about 13. I was sitting on my porch reading my kindle (I really love my kindle!), and they pop around the corner to my back porch, I’m sitting right there. It’s invading my space, and they need to leave, this is my property, so I ask them to please back up from my porch, which they do and they apologize but this isn’t the first time I’ve had a run in with these kids… Hell there were kids stealing stuff off my porch, timing when me and my husband left (and yes I know this I’ve tested my theory). Oh and also, there is a kid probably about 10 who now has a bb gun he shoots at houses, and yes, he shot at my house with me outside on my porch. And the dad and his “Friend” were shooting it at cars! Not cool.
And to think, housing still wont let me put up a damn fence… grrrr

I just don’t understand. I mean I’m all for kids being outside to play, it’s healthy for them, and they need the fresh air, but when did parents stop teaching their kids about personal space, respecting elders, and of course safety? My daughter knows how far she can go when she is outside and sticks to it. She knows how to cross a street (and only with an adult). She knows that if a car is coming and she is riding her bike, to ride it into the grass or on the sidewalk, and she definitely knows about personal space and how to respect her elders. I would never allow my kid to just run wild through the neighborhood or shoot a frigging GUN of ANY sort in a residential area, There’s no way. Maybe I’m just parenting wrong and that’s what you are supposed to do?
Eh, I’ve always been a rebel, guess I’ll be a rebel in parenting styles as well…

Going Dark

I know this is probably the stupidest thing ever, but I’m done with Facebook for now.

There has been so much drama, nasty comments, judgement, etc. that I just can’t take it anymore. I’ve officially shut out facebook. My account is there so as my family wont freak out (yes, I have those grandparents on facebook), but I will go nowhere near it for the next week minimum, even deleted the app off my phone.

I have so much going on my life, and the support is just not there anymore from some of those I counted on. I have one gal I rely on greatly for comfort, who has done nothing but continually insult me and make me feel completely stupid. I mean, I can’t even vent about a situation without feeling like I’m totally in the wrong or just being selfish, all I want is someone to respond simply with a “Gee, I’m sorry that sucks dude”, is it that hard?

When did facebook become an insult site? Why has it escalated to the point of ridiculing people, hurting others, and just all out giving someone the right to be a full-blown bitch?  I honestly believe that people are “bitches” on facebook simply because they don’t have to back up their statements. If you were in a real life situation and came at me with an attitude saying I was wrong, or I was being selfish, simply because a random thing happened that I was venting about, I would deck you. Full out. I didn’t ask for an opinion. I asked for someone to simply listen. I guess I just don’t understand. I mean… When I say something on facebook, I make sure I have proof to back up my statement, but I never tell someone they are wrong when they are venting, give my 2 cents? Yes, but they are within that grey area of acceptable statements that don’t push either direction.

Anyone of importance who needs to get ahold of me has my chat account and my phone number. I have no patience for Judgemental and rude people, especially right now with all the upcoming stress. Having my daughter leaving in a couple of weeks is nerve wrecking as it is, and on top of it I can’t be overly stressed with the “attempt” at baby making/ fertility treatments (as per doctors orders!). All I get is stressed, angry, and just all around flustered.  So, I have decided going dark is going to be something I desperately need. I’ll be regularly checking up on this bad boy since this will now be my outlet until I decide it fit to go back to that god awful networking site…. and then while my daughter is gone I’m going to go get lost in the woods of Hawaii, camp at  a waterfall, and just shut everyone out. I guess this has just been building up, and I’ve finally had enough. I’m just… done.

I hope ya’ll have a great weekend!

Sincerely,

The victim of a crayon eating dinosaur.

One Happy Hooker

Hah, I bet that title got your attention. Pervs.

 

I have come to the conclusion that I absolutely adore crochet, I love the random little projects I make, and now have gotten into amuragami, even though it’s just one pattern I’ve done twice (and now working on a third time), but I am starting a couple new ones for my daughter and my neighbor. I’ve done start blankets, ripple blankets, granny squares, the list just goes on. It’s something that I enjoy. It calms me down, and I love passing them on to friends and family and seeing their reactions. I figured I’d throw this out here, and attach a few of my projects that I love love love love.

I’m getting ready to start on my sisters blanket, with a pattern I received from a fellow blogger, and once I figure out how to attach her to this, I definitely will. It’s called a “wool eater”. And it’s an amazing pattern that I am anxious to get started on, and my sister is anxious to receive. Although, her “colors of choice” are going to require sunglasses, and I’ll probably be seeing weird colors for a while (all… neon… rainbow… wee!).

 

I’ll keep posted on the progress as I go, as I’m going to be a busy bee the next few weeks. My ex’s mom and sister are coming to visit the 27th for a week, and then we have 3 weeks with no munchkin since they are taking her back to South Dakota with them for our visitation agreement. So during the week they are here, there will be lots of hiking, snorkling, parasailing, and all that touristy stuff, and then the 3 weeks they are gone will be a lot more hiking, snorkling, and all that fun stuff that we normally can’t do while the kiddo is here.

Graduation was… well, graudation. It was super nice, just wish family would have been able to come, it would have made it much more worth it. I’ll have my bachelors in about a year, and then I have decided to move on with my masters, weeeeee school loans >.<
Rayne is about done with T-ball, only one more session left, 😦 It’s sad. but she is determined to get into soccer, and we are definitely getting her signed up with dance classes when she gets back from SD.

 

Did I also mention she turns FOUR on the 27th?  Sad, sad day… She’s growing up wayyyy too fast…

 

Anyways here’s some projects I’ve completed, graduation picture, and my daughters t-ball picture, since she’s friggin adorable.
