Still Can't

But I'm gonna anyway.  So if this post is lame or incoherent it's cause that's how I'm feeling lately.  No I'm not going to blame the weather.  If I hear one more person complain about winter I'm going to club them!  Not really of course but it's winter people get over it.  The weather is going to do what it's going to do and you have no control over it.  I said "YOU HAVE NO CONTROL OVER THE WEATHER!"  It's like this every February like no one has experienced February before.  People whine and moan and go on and on about the snow, the rain, the sleet, the cold, you name it they'll whine about it just cause it's February.

Spring lust is in high gear in February and because everyone is looking forward to spring they forget to enjoy the last bits of winter.  Yes, I said enjoy.   It's just as nice to snuggle up with a book and hot mug of your favorite drink in February as it is in November or December.  It's just as beautiful t…

Can't Start

I've started several blog posts in the last week but none of them made the cut.  Usually I just blot out my feelings on the page and don't worry too much about it but for some reason every time I try to write something it doesn't get finished or doesn't turn out the way I want it to.  It must be February blahs.

Valentines' Day was the usual.  The husband makes a minor effort and really doesn't want to make any at all.  He asks me every year if we are getting each other anything.  sigh  Can you imagine being asked that?  We have agreed in the past that there wasn't enough money to buy gifts for each other but for Valentines' Day one can get creative and not have to spend a penny.  I'm not very materialistic but I do expect some effort now and again.  Unfortunately the husband is a lazy sort who can't be bothered.

When he found out I got him some candy he made up a lame card.  He didn't put much effort into it and then scribbled at the bottom …

Peace and Quiet Gone

At least for my afternoon my peace and quiet is gone.  The son came home with a couple of friends.  Seems like they didn't want to go swimming for PE.  The pool is walking distance from the school and our house is between the two.  They usually schedule swimming when PE is at the end of the day so the kids can leave early from lunch.  The boys keep telling me the teacher doesn't care if they aren't there or not but it's skipping out of a class and I'm having a hard time with it.  Not to mention I have three 14 year old boys in my house when I was expecting a quiet afternoon.  Since the son got an 'A' in PE I am going to be a cool mom and overlook this for now.

If I see that he's missing any other classes he's gonna be in big trouble though and he knows it.  Skipping classes is a slippery slope.  Once you skip one it gets easier and easier to skip others.  I know cause I've done it myself when I was in school but I always kept my marks up so my m…

I'm Back

Sorry to have been gone so long.  I've been helping my mom out.  She's having pain in her hip because she needs a hip replacement.  Hopefully they'll be able to do it soon because her quality of life is really going downhill.  She can barely get around and doing housework in their big house is near impossible.  Of course my dad is there but he fell down a bank in Mexico and hurt both his ribs and leg so he's a bit gimped up too right now.  So they needed some TLC and I went up to help them out.

I'm not used to cleaning such a big house so by the end of the day I was tired and had no energy for posting.  I know I'm a whimp.   Most of you do that and more each day.  I just didn't feel like posting by the end of the day.  I still got to read posts and reply at my parents house during the day but by the time I got home and had my own family to deal with I was done.

Most of the spring cleaning is finished up at my parents house so now I can concentrate on my own…
