Outcast to my Stereotype

Its late here.  And I’ve come across a movie that I haven’t seen in a while.  Its one of those movies that brings memories with it. But not just any memory.  The kind of memories that have feelings attached to it that are so strong, you experience every feeling you had then all over again, but at a degree that feels 50x stronger.  

One of my favorite memories?  When I was younger, my husband (then boyfriend) had to go away for a bit. It was heartbreaking.  I missed him so much.  Now I know how all those military spouses feel when their husbands have to go.  His return home was nearing, but I hit a day when I missed him more than usual.  It physically hurt to think about him.  

My little sister has always been intuitive about us (our family).  You can’t really hide anything from her. She just knew what you were thinking and feeling. That day was no different.  10 years younger than me, and she still knew exactly what I needed.  She tipped my glasses up and down using the back of my glasses (just behind my ears).  That seems like a silly thing to do, right?  Why would I need that?  Because that’s exactly what my (then boyfriend) used to do to me to make me smile.  

Ok.  I love my family.  And I don’t think I’ve ever thanked them enough.  I’m a lonely person.  I like it that way. I like handling things on my own and enjoy doing things just me and my boys. My family will always be there for me though.  I don’t needto remind them how much I love them.  But for this blog….I wanted to remind them.  

I love you family!!!  Thanks for helping me handle life.

Fond Memories
It happened at a New York Airport. This is hilarious. I wish I had the guts of this girl. An award should go to the United Airlines gate agent in New York for being smart and funny, while making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo. For all of you out there who have had to deal with an irate customer, this one is for you. A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled. A single agent was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers.  Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket on the counter and said, “I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS.” The agent replied, “I’m sorry, sir. I’ll be happy to try to help you, but I’ve got to help these folks first; and then I’m sure we’ll be able to work something out.” The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, “DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?” Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone. “May I have your attention, please?”, she began, her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. “We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14”. With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said, “F*** You!” Without flinching, she smiled and said, “I’m sorry sir, you’ll have to get in line for that, too.” Life isn’t about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain. ——Taken from a Facebook Post
I love United Airlines!  And I most certainly appreciate all the employees who have to deal with grumpy travelers all day.  I find it a tragedy that people can’t ever be happy with what they have.  So many people yelling for more, faster, easier, etc!!  Really!?  Remember when it took months to travel across the country and even longer to visit another country?  You are traveling so far, so fast. We should all count ourselves lucky to have such a luxury.

Cry-ma-knitly its been a while since I’ve blogged!  Wowzer.  It started with “I just don’t have anything to blog about”.  Then it turned into “I’m too busy to blog”.  But now, well.  Now I seem to have a minute to blog. 

Its been almost a year since last I blogged.  That may be my style.  It sounds like my life.  My first free minute is a year later. Yep.

Anywho.  The hubby and I are still happily married.  The kid keeps getting bigger. And the dog is still a menace.  Just a bigger menace.  In truth, its been a year since my last blog and I still have nothing to write about.  The kiddo is in school.  Which it has been an interesting experience trying to get him accustomed to his new school schedule.  He loves his teacher though.  And still wakes up every morning excited for what the day holds.  We are waiting for his gift from me and daddy to arrive.  We ordered him a PackIt for his school lunches.  I know…we actually PAID for a fancy-shmancy lunch box for him to take to school.  In honesty, he deserved it.  He worked very hard over the summer to be sure that he maintained the opportunity to go to public school and not return to homeschool.  Yep.  After homeschooling the monster, he requested to go to public school.  And who are we to ignore his requests.  We did have him earn that privilage though.  And he did!  So, we were proud to spend a little extra money on a fancy backpack and lunch bag. 

Grandma has been over more often these days, which both monsters LOVE! I’m pretty sure the dog likes grandma more than me.  Tank has been spoiled by grandma. Which does not help his situation once grandma leaves and he’s left getting in trouble for all the things he was allowed to do while grandma was visiting.  Haha!!  Sucks for you, dog! He’s getting better though. He behaves very well for a toddler.  He’ll be 2yrs old in Dec. 

Welps.  I’m afraid that’s all the updates I have for you two….or do I have 3 readers now?  Tee hee.  Till next year. ;-)

Anonymous said: I like your blog sooo... go to tumblrtasks(.)com and sign up. It tells you how to make $$$$ online by doing easy work. Best 10 bucks I ever spent.

No thanks.  (1) I’m not going to spend money to make money.  It seems a little counter productive. (2) I did try that whole “get paid to answer surveys” deal and it was a sham. Again….I had to purchase something eventually.  So, thanks! But no thanks.

I haven’t posted a POST in a while. Life happened. But I am very happily married. So I assume those followers are looking for tips. ;-)

Honestly.  If all “Stay Off” signs were this charming, I’d go a mile out of my way to oblige the sign.  Haha!
