Getting You Up To Speed

Are you kidding me? Has it really been 5 days since my last post? Geez! I haven't really had time to post anything. I've been so busy trying to catch up on my every day chores and weekly calls to my friend and then just being plain tired.

I don't know what it is lately but I have been so exhausted that it feels like I'm drained. Yesterday my husband and I actually got to sleep in until 9:25am. Something that is completely unheard of for the both of us together. Usually I'm up by 7:45am getting ready for church while he just lays in bed watching TV until my daughter and I leave. Not yesterday. We were snoozing......and it was nice!! Only drawback.....I woke up with a headache. Fortunately it was one that I was able to get rid of. Thank goodness!!

So what the heck has been going on around my little abode since the last time I blogged, you ask? Well, let's see....
  • I went to work on Friday. Now that tax season is over, I feel like my days at work go by so fast. So fast that I don't have time to finish everything. I just feel like my boss keeps giving me so much stuff that I'm feeling overloaded. He even said I can work next Tuesday if need be.
  • Then Saturday we went to the San Jose Sharks game. Wow, what a game it was too! I normally don't get all "who rah" over the games but the last period was so intense, I couldn't help it. In fact, the other team they were playing (Anaheim Ducks), we had some of their fans there and one guy was really pissing me off that I let him know it too!
  • Sunday, besides the fact that we slept in, we basically just relaxed most of the day. I was hoping to go to Old Sacramento but we decided not to cause my husband wasn't feeling up to par. I wanted to go to Joe's Crab Shack cause seafood was sounding very de-lish at the time so instead we went to Red Lobster for lunch. Then we went driving around and took some pictures and then headed home. We didn't eat dinner cause lunch was more like a "Linner", if that makes!
  • Now here we are, Monday. And let me tell you, it started out like your typical Monday. I'm just glad to be home now. Relaxing. Blogging. With my family!

So, onto other things that are on my mind.

We have a dog. I think you know that. He barks at everything. Kids walking across the street. A dove that has made it's nest in our hanging plant by our front door, you name it, he barks. Well, yesterday while we were home he started barking so my husband opened the door and what does he find? He finds some snotty-nosed brat trying to steal our solar lights from our yard. How old do you ask, was this this kid? 8? 10? 12? NO! Try more like 4 or 5! That's right! I tell you, these kids sure are starting this crap early these day. The problem? The friggen parents! I am so fed up with the parents these day letting their kids run amuck! I am not that old...AT ALL. Okay, I'm not afraid to say it....I'm 34 and I'm so old school. If my child EVER thought about pulling a stunt like this, she would get a woop'in! That's right! I spank and I'm not afraid to say it. I know the line of what is spanking and what is abuse. And guess what? My child is turning out right too! She is well behaved, has manners and doesn't even think of doing something like that. I am completely appalled by this! Trust me though, I don't hesitate when my dog barks now. I have my camera ready so I can get that kid in the act!

Now, another thing that has got me bothered is all the shootings going on. My SIL just called a few minuted ago and told my husband that the town she lives in (right next door to where we live. It's the town I basically grew up in.), there was just another shooting. Apparently some guy was driving his motorcycle down one of the busy streets that takes you into some neighborhoods and he was shot by some random people with a shotgun. WTF?! People from the bad areas about 40 miles away have moved out to this part of the area. They have ruined that town. It used to be such a nice, boring town. Now, there's always something going on. It seems to be on the news more now cause someone got shot or there was a murder. It's nothing like it was 15 + years ago. I used to walk down the street to work. I wouldn't even think about doing that now. I would be scared too. Now, they are starting to move farther out to my area and I just want to get out. I don't want my child to be subjected to this. It really scares me. Hopefully we'll be able to get out before it gets too bad.

Okay, I think I got you all up to speed now. I'll be back with Mama Kat's weekly assignment. Unless something else comes up! Oh, forgive me if I have any mispelled words or sentences don't sound right, I just don't feel like proofing it right now. ;O)

Sleeping in is always great! lol

You're right, these kids are starting that nonsense earlier and earlier. I came from a family that believed in spanking and, trust me, if I feel a spanking is warranted, I'll give one to my kids, too - especially if it'll ingrain in their little heads not to try any stunts like the kid in your neighborhood tried. Times are definitely a-changin'!

I agree!! Many kids today don't have any manners, and are very rude!!

we have a couple of hoodlums in our neighborhood...they're like 5 and 7 years old and they go around bullying the kids, breaking windows in new houses, stealing things from new houses...

and their mom has the nerve to come over to my house and tell me that she doesn't want my oldest over there anymore, because he was too rough with them on the trampoline!!

EFF that, lady.

It's been one of those weeks, hasn't it? I love all of your random thoughts too! And kudos for knowing the difference between spanking and abuse, I'm not a parent yet but I do know that a lot of kids could handle a good spanking. I'm guessing that little terror of a 4-yr old in your yard hasn't gotten enough of them!

Sorry life has been so busy! Glad you had the chance to sleep in, though!
