Yes that is a correct title.  Same shit different school.  Just got off the phone with bubba's algebra teacher.  For those that aren't privy to my real life, bubba started public school after he informed me he "didn't wanna do his work" in homeschool. I do not possess the patience or knowledge base to teach a high school boy. Lol. The transition went smoothly and he LOVES the social aspects. Fast forward to today....finals were all week. This morning his algebra teacher called, he is failing. Several answers on his final were "don't know" but even with that he got a 70. He would have passed IF he turned in his assignments. De ja vu all over again. Que the tutoring followed by the discipline hopefully not followed by the encouragement to seek other educational opportunities. Lol.

Come on now.....

So, i am in the process of find, securing financing and purchasing a new to me vehicle. Today I went down to a dealership I have done business with before, my family has done ALOT of business with and spoke with a very nice salesperson.  This post is not a rant about her, it is a rant about the absurdity of the car industry.  I have a decent SUV with minor issues but very high miles.  Hence the car shopping...lol.  Well anyways, I wanted to use this for a trade in to offset the down payment.  The take my beloved SUV and do their "appraisal"  and they come back with the offer of a lifetime.  How could i afford not to take it......they will give me a whole whopping $300 trade in for my vehicle.  Um, how about no.  I can get a big write off donating it.  I can keep it for that price.  That was an insult and not even worth the drive over there.  Oh well on to more vehicles to look at and experiences to have.

Tides and time

Things in my life are always in a constant state of flux. Much like the tides like experiences and problems ebb and flow. I can accept this and acknowledge my part in the problems I create. What I can not get in board with is the way that some days things seem to be forgotten/forgiven/accepted and thrn in the next breath everything is on the verge of erupting.  To quote someone I know "either move forward or get out. Stay still is the same as going backwards." Well that applies to more than just me.  Also, remember moving forward doesn't always mean fixing what has been broken.  It means moving forward----sometimes in new directions.  Sometimes with the same people. Sometimes new people. Sometimes the same places. Sometimes new places.  But any action is preferable to no action.

Mob Wives

Ok y'all, I am fixin to share a guilty pleasure of mine -  Mob Wives...on MTV.  I am addicted to this show.  It is stupid crazy and makes my mini (ok not so mini) melt downs seem a lot more mellow.  I am a cross between Drita and Renee.  Psycho and a scrapper.  Oh and if any men are reading, there are some great tits on this show.

Happy Thanksgiving

Greetings and felicitations all.  Today after sleeping in till the late hour of 9----ish, i was greeted with a cup of coffee and Ferraro Rocher.  Both my son and daughter took over the kitchen and before work I got to dine on a full Thanksgiving dinner prepared by the kiddos.  We had ham, turkey, yams, green beans, mashed potatoes, dressing, gravy, pumpkin pie, and (not) pecan pie.  The pecan pie met an untimely consumption date by the only known living desert manatee.  In one gulp the entire pie was swallowed in the cavernous jaws of this rare creature.  If you have never seen one, they are LARGE, brown, giggly, and always ravenous!!  Beware, no food is safe around them.

Catch - 22

Ok, no this is not some ridiculous attempt at attention. It is an attempt at figuring out to deal with all these conflicting feelings I have.  

Lately, I have been really struggling with depression and the overwhelming feelings of worthlessness.  I have a support network and am trying to deal with these feelings.  

What I can not understand is the why.  yes, intellectually, i understand about chemical imbalances etc.  but why is this a constant struggle and how come sometimes it is easier than others to keep it in check.

Ok done sniveling
