Scooter still has quite a bit of green grass out in his spacious pasture. He is back on his Equine Senior full feed 3X a day to maintain his health and weight.
Last year when we had the drought in Oklahoma, we did not have much green in our pasture this time of year.
I made Manicotti from scratch Thursday evening for dinner.
Somehow, I managed to not make enough sauce to spoon over the Manicotti after they were finished baking. It was a delicious meal despite the lack of extra marinara.
I was quite impressed with myself, it was the first time I had ever tried this recipe. Cooking isnt one of my strong talents….
I have questions.
1. If I buy a parent training book is it going to help me be a better parent? or am I wasting my $$?
Because my kids are brats and they are quickly driving me to the psych ward.
There are so many parenting books out there. Dr. Phil, The Nanny, Hal Edward Runkel (The ScreamFree Parent-I could use this book),Thomas W. Phelan and on and on.
2. How can my house get filthy in a matter of 3 hours?
I left my house Wednesday morning at 7am to take my father-n-law to the MD in Tulsa. I returned home shortly after 11:30 am.
I left my house clean and straightened up. Bubba went to school at 7:30 am, hubs and Wee One went to work after dropping him off.
I came home to dishes piled in the sinks, dirty muddy floors through out the house, laundry thrown at the hamper-not in the hamper, and food wrappers on the floor beside the heaping trashcan. WTF!?!?!?!?!
3. Why did Wee One call Bubba a f**ker yesterday?
I have kept my potty-mouth in check. I started that months ago when we had a little bit of hope that Wee One might get into preschool. No more cussing allowed. I suspect Bubbs has been cussing out of my earshot…
4. Why does the same irritating parent in the gray Trailblazer insist on blocking traffic in the pick up circle at the Junior High after school?
I want to slap this stupid lady sometimes. And, I know I am not the only parent in the pick up circle wanting to harm her.
Move it lady!!!
5. Does the front of my car have a sign on the bumper that says: PLEASE PULL OUT IN FRONT OF ME! ????????????
All week distracted and just plain stupid people have been pulling their vehicles out in front of me.
The worse being some dirty-blonde-lank-haired skank who did an illegal U-turn in front of me on the county jail road then procedes to drive 20 miles under the speed limit. To top it off, she nearly side-swiped me near the turning lane. Sober up before you drive skank!
6. While I am ranting about driving, have blinkers become obsolete and no one has informed me?
Because I’ve noticed no one uses their damn blinkers anymore causing me to become very cranky while sitting unnecessarily at STOP SIGNS.
7. Who is that hottie driving a certain dump truck for Bucks that I keep running into and who keeps flirting with me?
I see this guy all over. He was even traveling down my road one day when Scooter and I were out for a ride. He waved and smiled really big…..he looks kinda young tho. hmmmm
8. Why were there 3 Tiger fans (opposing team) sitting in front of us (football player moms) at the last home game? Can they NOT see they are surrounded by Huskies fans and Huskie colors?
A few other players moms and I were sitting in our usual spot in the bleachers watching the last home football game when 3 Tigers fans plopped their arses in front of us. We were all flying our colors so unless the idgits were color blind, they HAD to know they were in opposing territory. These people even had the nerve to get nasty when we cheered ourselves hoarse and clapped ourselves numb while our boys whipped their team.
9. Is it wrong that Wee One can sing almost every AC/DC song by heart and knows only a couple of nursery rhymes? Am I a bad parent because my kid likes to rock?
Apparently best guy friend D thinks so. He commented on the very fact a few days ago. I just chaulked it up to his tiredness of working, running the hospital and visiting his sick mother. Or maybe he was just taking a shot at me because I still dislike his new girlfriend……fluffy or foo foo or feebie or whoever the GF before this one was a lot better. She may have been a space cadet and barely legal but at least she didnt look like she came off the street corners.
Does any of this really matter?
And, no I am not PMSing.
Homecoming Parade photos soon…..
