Dear Parent with an uncaring heart #FoodAllergies

Let me just say I am sorry my daughter’s food allergies is an inconvenience for you. I simply understand what it is like to deal with such an inconvenience. You know, because I have one child with an allergy, and one with out an allergy.

Dear Followers

I am having a WP issue, and I can not see any of my followers posts 😦 I can if it is not through WordPress, like following an outside blog like Blogspot.

Any ideas? Because I have no clue.

So, I have not been ignoring you haha! I just can’t see anyone posting but outside the circle. Also, even those are not in order. It jumps from Friday to Monday back to last month, haha! 🙂

People Watching

We pulled into the gas station. Hubby parked so he can pump gas on the left side, and that way he can just walk straight in the door and pay. I usually people watch while at a gas station. Well, this time there was actually something to watch, haha.
While Hubby went inside I noticed this guy walking in circles in the parking lot, maybe more like figure 8s combined with circles. He was puffing on a cigarette and keeping his head low. He wore a gray and white stripped shirt with gray cargo shorts with flip-flops. His hair was all shagged out, looked as though he hadn’t washed in a few days, and never brushed it, but who knows.
He continued to walk around, the same pattern, then the lady beside me stopped pumping her gas, she climbed in her SUV and flashed her lights at the guy. The guy then stopped walking his pattern and walked straight to the side of the building (the side of the store with no door). The lady pulls into the parking spot, which took her about 5 minutes to pull into. She pulled her SUV inch by inch to get into that parking place, finally when she was satisfied she parks it.
The lady gets out of her vehicle about 2-3 times before she finally just decides to turn her car off and get out for good. The guy approached her when she walked to the side of the building. He was still keeping his head low and pacing.
After they talked the lady leans against the corner of the building and lights her cigarette. The lady had a scarf around her neck, dark big sunglasses, and her pulled up into a pony tail. Now, it is almost 10 o’clock at night. Strange much? Even with the big sunglasses you can tell she is keeping an eye on the guy, who is now back doing his patterns in the parking lot. You can tell she is watching him because her head moves everywhere he goes, haha.
The guy finally stops behind a car and puts out his cigarette. The car beside him is pulling out, he is in between the car pulling out and the car that is parked. The guy backing out probably didn’t even see the guy standing there. The guy finally moved an inch away from the tires before they got run over.
After the car left the guy went into the store and out of the store about 3 times before we starting leaving.
Hubby gets into the car and says, “Don’t you find him suspicious?”
I simply said, “yeah, well, duh.”
Hubby, “kinda weird for the lady to be wearing black sunglasses in the pitch dark.”
Me, “Well, yeah, but who knows.”
Meanwhile, Hubby continues watching them as we leave.

Do you ever people watch while you are out?

Reality, What!?

As you can see I am up at 2am with nothing other to do but write a post, haha! I just recently watched week 3 of Bachelorette, and is it just me or has this show got into more “scripting” guys/girls into a show? Where did the “real” part of dating in the “Real” word go?

Week 3 and this girl is already head over heels for a guy that left. He didn’t even like her to begin with, he just wanted a rose. How low is this? If I want a show to be “real” I would have got the producer, when they were filming and had this guy packed up and moved out as soon as it was said. I am just not into these shows anymore.

Another thing, Ashley’s personality, it is like she is lost? (yes, I am questioning that, because I can’t read her) She was so fun in the beginning with Brad Womack, but I don’t think she has found herself again. She just comes off as she doesn’t know what she wants in a guy, and not stable. She don’t really “flirt” with the men, she just seems to be in her own world. Am I the only one who sees that?

Bring me the Biggest Loser, at least it has sweat, and “realness” in it! Well, here is my rant of the Reality TV series, now off to bed I go!

Illegal Download/Murder

You know me. I am typically your random topics blogger. Hints the “Were Jumin'” – random thoughts throughout the day.

I have been thinking about some things today.

What I don’t understand in our “government” is a woman getting charged for 1.5 million bucks (24 songs) for downloading illegal music (as seen here), but someone who can murder someone gets 10-20 years in jail, how is that possible? I don’t understand our government and probably never will. My thoughts is, if you kill someone, than your life should be done too. You took someone from the world, so you should live your life in jail or death penalty.

We slap people on the hand for murdering, but fine people millions of dollars for songs? How is that logic? Or even a man molesting a 6 week old baby, his own child, broke her limb, fractured her brain, and raped her and he gets 25 years in jail… (sighs) how is this right? Why is it our government cares about the little stuff instead of the big things? You can never get your child back if someone kills them, but yet they can continue live their life when they get out of jail? Someone who downloads music gets sued for 1.5 million dollars, but yet she didnt kill anyone? I just dont understand. She will never be able to pay the 1.5 million, she probably brings home the “below average income”.

Sorry to be all over the place, but I dont see how our government is right, nothing seems right, but yet people think we have the best of the best. when really we have people without jobs, people without a lot of things, homeless on the streets, but yet we have enough food in this country to feed the world. You have the government giving money to build “new” government buildings, but yet we have people who can’t even afford food on the table, or a job to even apply for.

Just my random thoughts of the day.

Here is my opinion on Online Dating. This is not related to looking up people around your neighborhood. I am simply just venting about “Online Dating” of someone who is over 2 hours away, across state, another country, a thousand miles apart, and etc. The type of “online dating” that you cannot see the person when you want to and the computer is the only thing you have to really keep up with communication, other than your phone.

I disagree with “online dating”. I believe you should not put your life on hold for someone you may or may not be able to meet within a few weeks to a month. My reasoning on this is; What if you didn’t date for two months, because you are “dating” someone online, waiting for your other to meet you? You have wasted time away, when the right one could be walking by your door. What if you waited six months, then they finally comes to see you and you’re not attracted to them sexually in person, or they constantly have bad breath, their hands are so rough it is like rubbing sand paper across your skin, or you just have no “spark”?

I have seen my friends date online and I just don’t get it. I can see how it fills the void that you so long desire, or the thought of “love” being there. I can also see how you can give it everything you have and all your emotions be involved with someone who is “connected” to you.

On the other hand, I totally see how some fall in love with someone over “online dating”, your emotions are real, you totally click as a person, and they are here for one another through thick and thin. Believe me; falling in love online is possible, I have seen it. I just don’t believe in wasting your life a way for something that may or may not be there. I do agree that you can be friends with your “online” other and date others as you are not “exclusive” with your online toy till they come to visit you in person, then you can decide where it goes from there.

Don’t shut your possibilities out for someone who you won’t visit or see. Live your life now instead of wishing for tomorrow, but anyway, now you know my thoughts on Online Dating.

New Beginnings

Seems lately I have a lot to think about. I figured I could write about it, get it out of my system so to speak.

Lets start from, um…

I was raised as an only child, when in reality I have 3 sisters, and a brother (1/2 siblings) on my real dads side. No one ever knew I had siblings, I never talked about it, unless someone went to school with them, or someone asked me. I went most of my life without them (my choice). I was raised by my step-dad for 13 years. He always told me he would adopt me, not to worry about anything. I even had my Letterman jacket from high school with my step-dads last name on it. However, when my step-dad and mom got a divorced, he divorced me too. He walked out of my life with never looking back.

I found my (ex) step-dad on FB about 2 years ago. I would send him private messages about twice a year (when I would think about him). I would just tell him I was thinking about him and I hoped that he was doing well. After 2 years of sending messages and never hearing anything he finally wrote me back recently. He told me I lied to him for years and he has nothing for me, and to never contact him again. (He was the one that cheated on my mom and married his girlfriend, so who lied for years?) This really bothered me that he didn’t have the balls to explain his reasoning, or why he even thought the way he did, but who knows it could have been his wife writing me back. Well, I finally said screw it. I am moving on. I went without him for this long, I can go more. That dang Letterman Jacket though, every time I open my closet it stares at me, been thinking about mailing it my ex (grandparents). I am sure if my (ex) step-dad thinks Im a lair, then they do too, so I am breaking down my bridges and moving on from the hurt, sucking up my tears and walking.

My days recently have changed a bit. My siblings have been calling wanting to come visit. I think it would be great to reach out and see how things go. Blood is thicker than water and I am willing to give anything a chance. God has closed a door so a new window will open and my window is blowing in some nice wind.

We’re All Left Behind

Doomsday has gone and left us.

My husband, daughter and I pack up to go to Lisa’s house, where her husband is cooking for us. We all sat together in the living room as 6:00pm got closer, not knowing if we’re just going to “disappear” from one another. We looked outside the window watching the clouds roll by, just like any other “normal” day should look. We closed our eyes as we said a prayer, a short one nevertheless. We’re all crowded into the room, all reaching into our pockets pulling out our phone and waited for the 6:00pm with only 1 minute remaining.

You could hear faint whispering of the TV, heaving breathing from the impatient kids, mumbling coming from radio, air blowing from the ceiling fan 3 foot away. You could have heard a pen drop from the next town, yeah if only I wasn’t making this stuff up, HA!

Looks like we all got left behind folks. I got more days to hear my daughter’s 3 year old tantrums, write in my blog, and complain about the usual stuff and more days of my husband putting up with me.

However, the day went very well, spending time with family, telling jokes and endless laughing. I love my family, even my in-laws. They all make me feel welcomed and loved. It wouldn’t be normal if they weren’t around, kind of fills the empty void I feel sometimes. Well, back to reading I go.. I hope your weather was nice and you got to laugh as much as we did, till tomorrow my follow readers. Goodnight!

Facebook

Have you ever noticed how many “friends” you have on Facebook? Do you ever wonder why they never “talk” to you?

Well, there has been  lot of thoughts creeping through my head about this. I, for one, do like my “friends” all of them. They are on my friends list not because I just wanted them there to make me “popular”, but because at one point in my life they have left something to remember them by.

On the other hand, I have came to notice how things tend to change on Facebook. Like when, you comment on a friends status and they never really either answer you back, or they just say “thanks” never try to draw up a conversation with you. Which leads me to believe if you don’t want to be my “friend” then delete me. You wont hurt my feelings any. I have been through enough, I know I can handle it.

Also, I don’t care if you don’t like my 154156431 status updates. I do have family on my Facebook that might like knowing what Im doing. If you don’t like them, then delete me.

Wow, I guess for some reason I am venting, but I do love Facebook. I love it, because there is a lot of childhood friends on there, lots of family that I don’t get to see as often as I should (Which goes back to only having 1 car from a previous post). I do think Facebook needs to be adjusted. Maybe one day I will sit down and delete all the people I don’t really talk to, and keep my “true friends” as well as my family. In the end that is all that matters to begin with, right?

Friends will have your back no matter what and well with family, some of them might need something to talk about over their morning coffee. Maybe everyone can eventually see how happy I really am and how proud I am of the person I have became.

~happy Facebooking (my own word)~

Just a Thought

I have been thinking, due to us recently visiting the Zoo. Why is it other businesses can not have small potties for toddlers? Do you know how much easier it would be to a mother? I think at least every Walmart, Target, Publix, and other grocery, toy stores, etc should have small potties. Then, all the mother has to do is cover the potty, while the child is pulling their pants down, the child can turn and sit on their on free will. Instead, we have to cover the potty, help the child on the potty, sometimes hold the child on there. As the child uses the potty we have to hope and pray they wont be scared of the “big” potty when it flushes!

So, my question is; How can the Zoo have potties for children, but not other businesses?

They were small, heck I might even use it!

Also, if you walk into a restroom with small stalls and potties, it somehow brings a sense of relief and its not so overwhelming for the child to go to a public restroom 😀
