I’m in business!

So, it’s official.
I have a business.
For real.

It’s totally crazy.

I’m all legit.

I have a sellers permit, a business license and an officially filed fictitious name.

The only thing left is a bank account.

But I guess I need money before I can get that.

I also have a Facebook page, a twitter account, a pinterest page, a (one month free trial) website and blog.

Not to mention the etsy store… And the shop on thecraftstar.com (if they ever get it fixed).

I think I’ve covered all the bases.

Now I just need people to buy stuff.

But, of they buy stuff from all the places they can buy stuff at once,
I’m screwed. LOL

Sex, Lies & Facebook

Dear Girl-I-sort-of-knew-in-High-School,

I love some good drama as much as the next guy… but I barely know you and I was embarrassed that you felt the need to air what seemed to be ALL of your dirty laundry for all of Facebook-land to see. 

I appreciate the fact that you were trying to tell “your side of the story”… I get that. But there is this fabulous invention on Facebook called PRIVACY SETTINGS. Use them.

It’s awful that you cheated on your husband… that your husband cheated on you… that your husband’s family thinks the worst of you (what do you really expect they are going to be on his side no matter who is really at fault) and I’m really sorry that your poor kids are stuck in the middle of all your drama.  

They should be the #1 reason NOT to share that kind of stuff so publicly.

I have no doubt that you could have gotten your side explained to your in-laws in a much less public forum. Write them a letter or email, go visit, call a meeting, singing telegram, conference call, Skype, or just use your privacy settings so only they can see.

If you want to really be public about it-  go on Maury or Jerry Springer.. (wait, are either of them even still on?) .. or whatever the newest talk show is where you can get a paternity test and air all of your grievances for the general tv watching public.  

See, you have options.  

Oh, and one other thing… in the wake of announcing your failed marriage to the world… maybe you should have held off on letting us know about the new boyfriend for a little while.  I’m just sayin’… it doesn’t really help your cause at all.

 I wish you luck on this new chapter in your life…   Please just think twice before you o all TMI on us again. I don’t want to know THAT much about it. 🙂

Signed,

Me

 

Why do people have to be rude? It’s just Facebook!

Seriously people. It’s just Facebook.

Why do you have to be so freaking rude?

When I post stuff, It’s usually to be funny… to share something hilarious that the Maniac said or the Teen did. It’s hardly ever serious, and it’s all done in the spirit of fun.

I do post things about both of my lovely daughters. But I will admit, I probably post more about the Maniac. I find her hilariously funny sometimes.

Case in point:

Today we were driving to the grocery store. She asked to listen to the “Glee Project.” (First of all that’s funny..since obviously she’s seen the show courtesy of her big Gleeky sister.)  I think “One Love” was on and she is in her car seat pretending to cry.

She says: “I think I’m gonna cry.”

Me: “Why are you going to cry?”

She says: “Because I love this song.”

Seriously, what 3-year-old says that? It was hilarious all three times she said it.

So, I posted it on FB. I got a couple likes on it.

Then… out of the blue… the rudeness struck.

It pops up on my phone that my nephew’s grandmother (My brother-in-law’s baby-mama’s Mama) commented on my status (I replaced the names):

“U put the dumbs stuff y don’t u Put something about hubby’s daughter!!! its always about the Manaic u no there is a another kid in the house or did you for get??”

Yes lady, I forgot I have another kid. Are you effing kidding me? Who are you to me to even say such a thing? Um.. let me check… ahh… No one. Color you unfriended. Geez.

RUDE! RUDE! RUDE! RUDE! RUDE! RUDE!

So, I’m sure that my friends who had already liked that post got the notification that psycho lady was rude to me. Awesome.

I couldn’t delete it or unfriend her fast enough.  I don’t need that kind of crap or people  in my life.  I’m kind of torn about sending her a message telling her about herself.  But I think that would probably be moot. I hope she saw my new status update before I unfriended her.

“Why do people feel the need to put inappropriate and rude comments on stuff? Seriously uncalled for. You don’t like what I have to say, don’t read it or unfriend me.”

Okay that is all from my soap box. Please resume your regularly scheduled programming. haha!

 

My Day of Unplugging: the results

Unplugging was hard.  Sadly, it was REALLY HARD.

The funny part was that I made a deal with my Bookworm Teen that since I was unplugging to spend quality time togetheras a family, she needed to not read all day.  She will just sit and read and read and read all weekend long (currently she is inteh process of reading, at last count,  6 books.) Which, is definitely NOT a bad thing.. but I thought it would be good for her not to read for just one day.

Surprisingly, I think she had a harder time not reading than I did not facebooking.

I will say that I did 2 things electronic on Saturday.

1. I did check my email to see if my last box listed on Thredup.com sold, since I was going to the post office. And it actually did, so I got to send off all 4 of my boxes!

2. I logged on to FB on my phone just to wish my niece a Happy Birthday! She turned 13 on Sat! Crazy.

And that was it. I had a pretty unplugged day. truth be told I didn’t really completely plug back in until this morning.

The Toddler has been sick and I’ve been dealing with that most of last week and all weekend. We spent this morning at the pediatrician’s office.  I’m sure she’ll be better soon if I can convince her to take her medicine. That’s a big IF! sigh. 

Oh, one funny thing I noticed.. on Saturday while I was out and about running errands, I found myself thinking in status updates. Probably not a good thing.

But I was making entertaining observations that I wanted to share with the world… but sadly could not.  i did write a couple down. Does that make it worse?

Here they are in no particular order:

  • Wow. 2 people actually asked if I needed help with my boxes at the post office. Amazing. There ARE nice people out there.
  • The Toddler weighs more than the giant bag of dog food I bought.
  • What a morning. I woke up covered in pee. Thankfully it was not my own.
  • Apparently I can’t do math. I have a save $5 when you buy $15 if frozen food… my total came out to $14.47. Grrr.
  • I don’t know which is more entertaining the pregnancy tests next to the condoms at the dollar store, or the pregnancy test and condoms in the “Reduced for Quick Sale” bin at the grocery store.

Oh, and finally- we play this game in the car where if we see an animal, I yell out its name and the Toddler makes its sound. It seems that I don’t drive anywhere by myself enough- I started to yell “Chicken!” and realized I was alone.  I started to yell “Goat” on the way home.  yeesh.

Overall, I think it was good. I’m going to try to do it more often. Especially when my hubby is only home for a short time.  We had a good day. Got a new battery in the truck, i got to spend some quality time alone (grocery shopping) and we had a nice family dinner. I even made brunch before he left on Sunday.

Now, my focus for this week is SPRING CLEANING! Woooooooo!

I made a list last night, of some things I want to get done. Hopefully we can cross some of them off. we shall see! Oh, and I’ve decided to spend 15-30 minutes in the garage cleaning/organizing everyday and hopefully someday I will get done (and not bit by any scary spiders! eek! I found a super scary one in there yesterday!). The chaos in there is driving me insane.

Wishing everyone a wonderful week! 🙂

Unplugging- Let’s try this again!

So, last weekend I had a mostly failed attempt at unplugging.

 I’m going to try it again tomorrow (Saturday).

I’m not even going to turn the computer on. Once its off tonight, its off. No Facebook, no Farmville, no Cafe World.. no email. Nothing. I am even going to shut off the Facebook SMS notifications to my phone.

My hubby is only home for a short time this weekend again, so we are going to make the most of it. 

Nothing else is terribly exciting…

1. The battery in the truck died, so I havent been able to go anywhere since Wednesday.

2. I am working on putting together Emergency Preparedness kits. With all the talk of earthquakes and tsunamis lately, I’m stupid not to have already done this.  We do live in earthquake country after all.

3. Oh, I think I have successfully taught the dog to lay down. Go me.

4. My camera died. But I got a new and better one, I’m very excited about it.

5. Spring is here, the stupid fruit flies have invaded my house again. GRRR.

That’s about it.  Signing off until Sunday!

Have a great weekend! 🙂
