Not my normal Saturday

Normally, on Saturday's I spend my day outside doing yard work.  But, today is different, because Chris had to work today.  You ask, why I can't do yard work when Chris isn't home?  Well, the answer is... Hell if i know!!!
So this Saturday, is basically being spent like any normal week day.
Breakfast for my monsters, Em and I did a mini workout, load of laundry, nap with Andrew and watched an episode of Peppa Pig.  I'm dying to read a book that I just downloaded on my Iphone, but the piece of shit broke yesterday.  Luckily my 8 year old daughter has an itouch, so I can watch it on there.. But not today, she is busy sitting in front of the t.v videoing all the shows she likes to watch on her itouch! She said she wanted to do this so she can watch t.v in the bathroom.  Sometimes I think she has a man's soul.

Andrew is obsessed with an old bike that his Pa-Pa gave him.  He is sitting outside turning the wheels and staring at it.  He's waiting for Daddy to get home to put on the training wheels so he can "ride faster than Sissy."

I'm also outside watching him talk non-stop about how his new (used) bike has 2 handles.  Right now, for me to get online I have to sit on the porch and pick up our neighbors' wi-fi signal.  It's hot as hell out here and the mosquitoes are eating me alive.
But I sit here writing and listen to Andrew count the parts on his "big man bike."

Although, in about two-weeks one of my close friends will be moving in with me and my family.  It's no surprise that my family plus many, many other including my close friend are having money issues.

My close friend Amy and I were roommates years ago and it was quite fun, although it was before I had children.. Doubt we will have any drunken nights these days.

But the point is, when Amy moves in we will have internet again!!! I won't have to sit outside and "borrow" a signal.  I will not take for granted sitting on a couch, chair or my bed in the a/c reading about other's on Facebook.  Can you tell how freaking excited I am?  I really am!!!!!!

Also, due to the economy we are losing our health insurance so I'm weaning myself off of what my son call "nice mommy pill."  Because of that, I don't have as much energy as I normally do.  Maybe that's why I don't feel like doing yard work today?
Anyway, enough of my ramblings... it's hot out here.  I'm going inside to cool off.

Thanks for reading!

What happened to honesty?

Anyone who really knows me knows that I am a very honest person.
 Although, sometimes I still feel like I am sugar coating things just for that person’s sake or feelings.  I hate doing that!

I do not understand weak or overly sensitive people.  If someone asks me my opinion on something and I tell him or her the straight out truth no fluff involved.  Then they get offended! Really?  You asked me, if you do not want to know the truth please don’t ask.  Okay even now, as I’m writing, I feel like I’m trying to be tactful.  Why the hell am I doing that?  This is my blog and I can write what I damn well please.  If you don’t like it then you can stop reading.

Don’t get me wrong, I do not go walking around just blurting out my opinion to anyone I see.  I try not to put my two cents in if I’m not asked.  I would love to though.  And I have in the past and it did not end well… Lesson learned I guess.

I believe a true friend is someone who will sit down with his or her friend and tell them the truth.

If you have a friend who lets say you think lives in a fantasy world, why is it so bad that you tell your “friend”, hey wake the fuck up!  Life is not a movie; you can’t live your life like that.  That will NEVER happen to you!
I don’t believe it’s mean to be truthful.  By all means if someone witnesses my life turning into a big pile shit, TELL ME!  

I’ve been told in the past I have “thick skin” and I can take constructive criticism.  I take it all in and I change what I feel needs to be changed.

I know many people who cannot take constructive criticism and I don’t understand why.  Do not take it personally, change it!
I believe it will make you a better person.

Although, I think I have two friends total in my everyday life who are basically like me.  NO FLUFF!!! That’s what I love about them most.  Those two friends, know exactly what I’m talking about in this post.
Oh well, not everyone can be alike - although it would make my life much easier if everyone were like me and my no fluff friends. HAHA!

One last note, while reading this post and you feel like I’m talking about you, then I probably am.  Take a good look in the mirror and figure out who you are.  Really, who are you?  Are you the person you want to be? Are you honest with others? Most importantly, are you honest with yourself?
I would bet the answer is NO.

Of course this is just my opinion, and I know many people who will disagree with my view on honesty.
