On The Verge Of A Dresscode

As most of my readers know I have four daughters. My oldest is 11 and just went into 6th grade.
She goes to public school because we can't afford private. She is a modest girl. She won't wear dresses or skirts. She isn't a tom boy, I would say more goth than anything and I only say that because she loves black. She isn't allowed to wear makeup, except for a glossy lip stuff. She is just starting to get into some of the name brands and I am ok with that. She knows that most of it is expensive and I will buy it on special occasions.

But then there is the rest of the world? Parents - where in the hell are you shopping and why???????
These young girls look like gang bangers or bikers girlfriends at 11! WTH are you thinking? I don't even see these kind of clothes when I am shopping. I am no prude, but seriously people they are only 11. Most girls don't even dress that way at 16.

Our society makes me sad. One more thing I feel I have to keep my daughter from - too much sexuality at 11.

My Baby Went To School Today

Somehow, the sunlit world is grey

A small girl went to school today

So often in these few years

Of healing hurts and mending tears

Of picking playthings off the floor

Or running often to the door

To see if she was safe at play

The awfull fear that she might stray

On eager, fearless baby feet

Into the crowded city street.

One thought has been a placid pool.

She'll soon be old enough for school.

And she was old enough today

Yet all the sunlit world is grey

So soon my rooms grow orderly

With no small girl to bother me.

But quiet rooms are lonely things

When in their walls no small girl sings

A quiet yard's a lonely place

When it has known a small girl's face

Today she joined the world of women

She'll not be wholly mine again

Today she braved life's rise and fall

Dear Lord she seems so very small.

Somehow the sunlit world seems grey

My baby went to school today.

Thank You Note Thursday #3




I just LOVE Jimmy Fallon. One of the best sketches ever is his, "Thank You Notes". They are usually on Friday nights. If you have never seen one you have to watch the clip above.

I decided to make a meme based off this and even though it won't be as good as his writers, I hope I can make them funny. Please join in! If you end up posting your own, please let me know!




Thank you.......

3D for introducing your younger brother 4D. Because 3D wasn't annoying enough on the big screen.

TV commercials for playing/pushibg the same two shows you really want us to see. I won't watch either.

Oxi Clean for really working on the wine I spilled the other night.

School for finally starting up again!!!!!!!!!

It's August and I'm Broke


I think I hate the month of August more than any other month of the year. August always equals =poor. School supplies, shoes, clothes, misc. crap. Oh and of course it has to be a five week month with 31 days in it!

I'm currently without a job because I was let go due to no budget in my department. This has to be the worst possible month to be without a job.

I have been putting my resume out there like crazy and keeping my fingers crossed. I am hoping that something will come through soon. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Thank you.......

Lady with two obnoxious boys in Jewel. As you were screaming at the top of your lungs at them it made me realize how well my girls behave in public.

Spell Check on my iPhone. Some days I have never laughed so hard in my life at your mistakes.

Media - for telling me my turkey could be contaminated, but not telling me what brand or store.

Facebook - for making me relive my past every day of my life!

Lady in Walmart with four kids. Thank you. I don't feel so alone now.

Thank you.......

Kate Middleton for helping to cointhe term "refashionista". I think this it is so cool that you wear the same clothes twice just like the rest of us.

Oreos for coming up with a new flavor - Neopolitan. Like it isn't hard enough to choose a flavor as it is at the grocery store. We really needed another.

Charlie Sheen for being the butt of some really great jokes and sayings. Go away now.

Casey Anthony. Thank you for reminding us that evil does still roam the earth.

Ashton Kutchner. Thank you for taking the Two And A Half Men job. Like we don't get you shoved down our throats every day anyway.

To the writers of "The Office".  For giving us Dwight to make fun of every day.

22 More Days And Counting.....



It is wrong that I am counting down each day until my freedom? LOL It has been a long summer and we have now hit that part of summer that just  D............R..........A..........G.............S.

We have going swimming, biking, walking, hiking, picnicking, museums, beaches, sleep overs and more and no one wants to do anything anymore. THEY ARE BORED. I am exhausted. I am looking forward to school as a chance to take a deep breathe.

The only problem with back to school is the finances. It is so expensive to clothe these kids and get school supply, let alone feed them. I guess at least my grocery bill will go down considerably soon. I just hate the financial stress of trying to get everything. Wake me up when August ends..........
