Just thoughts...

I am a 26 year old, fairly normal woman. I have a good job, great kid, mostly great friends, and most things are just all around good for me right now. So why in the hell do things keep falling apart for me??? And why is there always such childish drama around? I mean I thought at some point you grew up and things changed. Apparently, I am sooo wrong. Why do people you consider your best friends hurt you the most? I have GOT to stop letting people rule my emotions like I do. When will I learn that it's my life and who cares what everyone else says or does?

*And yes these are all rhetorical questions. :)

Weather people are overpaid

I think our weather people need some serious re-training. All I heard yesterday was about this HUGE ice storm we were supposed to have last night. People were attacking Wal-Mart so they would be prepared for it.

This morning, I wake up and look outside...nothing. I get my son ready for school and I get myself ready for work. He is actually waiting for the bus until I realized that we've been waiting for too long. I turned on the TV and every stinkin' school in a 50-mile radius is closed!

What is going on? There is more ice on my porch than on the road. I mean literally NOTHING was on the road. It was a perfectly fine day to go to work and school. Well when the public school is closed, my work is usually closed except for the office staff (which I am). I called my boss and she decides she isn't coming this point I think that maybe everyone in my town is having a mass hallucination of ice or snow or something.

It turns out, the school administration was just being cautious. There was more weather predicted for later on in the day and they didn't want to take any chances. But still. Give me a break would ya? I cannot believe that I had to use a sick day from work for NO REASON. *sigh* And after all that, we didn't get anything after all...what would these people do in Michigan or Minnesota???

Pretend relatives

Apparently I have waaay too many pretend relatives. Since my real mom is crazy and my dad is dead, I have a pretend mom and a pretend dad (which by the way have never met). I also have assorted kids that call me their aunt. Today my kiddo (who is almost 7) asked me if one of these kids was his cousin. Hmmm. Good question. Technically no but kind of yes. So I told him it was similar to having a pretend Mawmaw and Pappy. He said "Ok, well maybe our whole life can just be pretend". *sigh* I guess this means I may need to lay off of adding anymore pretend relatives to our lives for a little while....

And here I was thinking I was making a pretty normal life for him.

an apology and movie trivia :)

So I guess my intention of writing all the time didn't work out. lol I'm going to start from today and see how it goes. How about I just do a little no brainer thing. I'm going to post some movie trivia. These are some of my favorite quotes. If anyone is reading this and needs the answers, leave me a comment asking me and I'll send them to you.

Bonus points for knowing the movie and who said it!
