Thursday, The Last Day Before Spring Vacation, Wish Me Luck!

Thursdays have become so busy. There are so many wonderful things to join and contribute to. Are you doing any Thursday meme's that I haven't found yet?

There is Jen's meme called A Thousand Word Thursday. I love this one mostly because I get to search the photo archives and also because I used to have a blog called, Memories Through Photography which I absolutely loved. This was during my 4+ running blogs. Yikes, what was I thinking?

This week, here I have a photo from March 2004
I have many favorite pictures of Handsome. I think this is a favorite because of the natural sunlight on his face, because of his smile and because he was so proud of himself for standing. Oh, and lest we forget the hair that is sticking up. So cute.

Last week I grabbed the button for a meme called Letters That I'll Never Send. Here is my first letter if you care to read. (Honestly, this one may actually be sent).

Dear School Personnel,

This letter is to the aids who are greeting our children in the morning. We, as parents are dropping off our most prize possession into your care every morning. YOU, are the next face they see after the people who love them most say "good-bye" for the day.  So, why may I ask do you have such nasty, negative, bitchy, annoyed attitudes in the morning?  The day has yet to begin and already your face shows us that you do not want to be there. Do you think that makes us comfortable to hand off our children to that? I can only imagine that you are extremely unhappy in your job. If this is the case, do you think that this is the place for you? School is hard enough for the youth of today. They leave the safety of their home, the loving arms of their parents to enter a competive, overly structured, cold, environment. Is it any wonder that there are so many unhappy, combative, full of attitude children in school?

In the morning when you are "interrupted" by the loving, caring parents who are there to drop of their children and make sure they are on time, is there a reason for your cold, hard, nasty faces to not have a pleasant word. Can you not utter a "good morning" before you rudely say "No, it is not time." Or some other "excuse?" This morning it was "No, we cannot open the door, the school is not open yet we are having bus drills."  Do you think that the parents who drop off everyday on the other side of the school know about your bus drills?  Do you think that they do not have children to bring to another school (who will now be late yet again), or a JOB to get to?  Why is the door to the school not opened on time?  The children are going to the gym! They are not roaming around the school! Why DO you continually make children wait outside in rain and freezing weather? Does it make you feel good? I am not suggesting that the school doors be open ahead of time. I am not suggesting that you go above and beyond. I am simply stating that YOU do not have the right to be rude! You MUST do your job with a smile and on time! The world does not revolve around you!

The next time I drop my child off, I EXPECT a smile on your face even if it is a fake one. You nasty old bitch!

Ahhhhh that felt so good!!!!

(This letter may in fact become a face to face meeting with the schools superintendant when school reopens)

This weeks Memory Rewind is from April 2005
This is 12 day old Goddess. She was so pink and after having a big baby boy who always looked very boy to me even as a newborn, I was thrilled to have my baby girl.

She is the reason I know there is a God. After losing my mom at 12 years old I always wanted a daughter. I felt like I missed out on a relationship experience and really wanted to be the mom of a girl. Having one of each is just such a blessing. I get to play the mom I always wanted to be. My friends son's always told me I would be a great "boy" mommy. I like to run, roll, wrestle, jump, scream, yada, yada..and I always thought I was destined to be the mom of boys. Then came this little pink girlie thing. Now, she is very much in between the girlie girl and the tomboy. It will be fun to see how she progresses but back in 2005, she was a Girlie girl because she had no say.

Welcome to the March 25th version of Thursday Thunks

They pick a subject, and we interpret it anyway we want. Write about it.
Please only leave a link if you have written a Thursday Thunks post.

1. I got nothing. What should I ask next week? Although I think Kimber should do it next week. Somehow. Dude, I've got nothing either but that next wind chime question is really titillating. Thanks for that.

2. Wind chimes - annoying or not? Depends. Outside with the wind doing the work beautiful. In side with some tool running their hands through them really fucking annoying. (oppps...Lor..I just wrote the F Word)

3. Camping - camper or tent? Since I don't see myself laying on the ground anytime soon, I would have to say Camper but...if a certain "Scott" or "Brit" were to ask me.....

4. Told ya I got nothing. This really sucks. I should have had Bud do this, huh? Yes, but whose to say Bud's questions, wouldn't be just as...wait....hmmm...did Bud give you question #7?

5. What is your favorite letter of the alphabet? I actually do have one. It is B.

6. So this week my kid had to type a research paper for English.... then she had to email it to her teacher! Is that not just the oddest thing ever? Blew my mind away. Yup, crazy especially since I honestly didn't know you had a kid.

7. Wow. These questions suck. They suck bad. Do you like to suck through straws? For what type of beverages? I don't care to suck through straws. Is this a trick question? Is this Bud asking? Bud, if it's you; yeah, I love sucking anything through straws especially jello.

8. What do you do with your cell phones when you do those wonderful "upgrades" to the newer, fancier phones? They sit in my underwear drawer. I always think I am going to donate them but always worry about people getting my information off of them. Honestly, not a big upgrader so there are only 2 phones in the drawer.

9. It's allergy season - unless you've completely missed all the people walking around with kleenexs stuck to their nose... what are you allergic to? I am allergic to some of these questions, they are actually giving me hives and my butt itches.

10. What did you sleep with as a child? I was begging for a dog, so I slept with a pink stuffed dog. It was very calculated, I was praying my father would see how much I wanted one and buy me one. Come to think of it, my son has started doing this now. I'm onto him...he gets NOTHING!


  1. First off, Good luck!!!

    Love the pic of Handsome. What can you say to that face? The sunlight really does something to it!

    I'm starting to think I should have done this letter thing instead of the post I wrote calling out a certain blogger. Live and learn, I did.

    That pic of Goddess reminds me why I love kids. If they stayed that small, I'd have a brood by now. Then I see my mouthy teens and I'm cured!

    I actually love wind chimes. As long as they're outside not in. If I heard them steady, I wouldn't enjoy them anymore. The old cowbell ones are my fave.

    p.s. I hope your butt stopped itching! LOL

  2. I had nothing to do with any of this. But if I were to ask a sucking question, I am not sure I'd include straws... ;)

  3. I'm a new follower from MBC. I would love for you to follow me too! Have a great night!

  4. What adorable pictures and I enjoyed your comments about schools and the children who are the students!
    Thanks for sharing.....Cindi

  5. Love the pictures, of course.
    Send that letter! Well, maybe edit it a little first.
    You crack me up, as always. Have a great weekend :)


I love comments. Please feel free to leave a comment. I would love to talk to you further
