The Neverending Story

I swear.. Couldn’t life just go a little smoother? If it’s not one thing it’s another.

Ahh, well, at least I can say I’ve learned a few things. Important things, even..

Be impressed. LOL.

First off (and I’m sure that most importantly) I’ve learned that I can’t put my trust in everyone I meet. I’m almost proud this took me 40 years to learn ’cause that just means I’ve been surrounded by good people all my life. This was a hard lesson for me, I think, because I’ve never been that girl. You know the one who lives for drama and gets into everything.. It’s simply never been my style and I’m good with that, for real.

I’ve also learned that even when I’ve known someone for years, I still don’t know them like I think I do at all. I have learned more about my husband than I did in like ten years, over the last few months since things have gone off track. Things that I wish I’d paid attention to so maybe I’d have known what was to come. I wouldn’t change a thing, don’t get me wrong, but I might be a little bit less tired.

Now last but least, well for tonight’s post anyway, I’ve learned a lot about myself and who I am. I’ve taken note of what I do and what I don’t want for my life, and I have gotten an idea of what I consider home..

I hope that’s good enough for now, because I don’t have time for more. The more I dwell on things the more they seem to suck. I am a firm believer in the truth that worry is like prayer; the time you give can change your outcome and maybe the way you fare..

Your days are yours, and only you can make them better than they are. If you’ll just do it, damnit. Do something worth doing while you’re there..


Story of My Life..

Tomorrow is Monday. Usually my favorite day of the week, this one happens to be slated for a full day of chores. (WTF Monday? You coulda warned me.. 😒)

It has come to my attention that we’ve less than a full pack of pull-ups left here in the house, and I don’t have a clue where to buy them.. They were being delivered once a month by some place out in Pearl but they stopped for no reason sometime earlier last year. When I called (and I’ve called like six times – seriously) I’m told we need an updated prescription and that they’ll fax a request over to her doctor. Well after waiting a few months and getting nothing i went to the pediatrician and asked her what to do. So she finds the website and prints out the forms and then sits down with me and fills them out. I can only assume she faxed them in as I have yet to hear back about anything.

Its SO frustrating. If I were a toddler I might throw a tantrum. Hell, I might throw onevanyway..

What the F*$# ‘Merica?!

It’s only been about five hours since I stood laughing in the kitchen with my thirteen year old daughter. She’d asked me if I’d voted and I responded with some snarky comment about while I know it’s time we break things off with Obama, I thought our country as a whole would be a good bit better off to take a year or two and decide what it is we really want before leaping blindly into another bad relationship.. She rolled her eyes and smiled but it took her a couple of seconds to decide if I was being serious or not. 

I was, and she knew it. Even at thirteen she saw it lying there in a pool of sarcasm. The tiny seed of truth that I’d just planted already had roots.

I gave her a minute to think and then winked at her and said “never forget that politics, for the most part, is just a bunch of smoke and mirrors. We just elected Donald freaking Trump as our next president.. Tomorrow half the country will wake up with second thoughts..”

Good night people. I hope it was worth it.

(Not to say that voting for Hillary would have turned out any better.. Although I do find the idea of seating her behind the same desk that Miss Lewinsky once sat under somewhat amusing.. 🗽

A corporate email response in regards to a software application deal 

Dear Sir, (For Privacy)

To answer your questions, please let me say first, that in my opinion, the integration of the Smart Watch is going to be the next logical step in portable gaming. With the mastering and ease of virtual storage, whether the customer prefers using the Apple, Google or Microsoft operating systems, there should be an app for that.  Simply put, the idea goes something like this – By enhancing the remote control sensors that already come standard on every television in the world, we could potentially give an added NUI feature to the increasingly popular Smart TV. To pair this with data and movement tracking programs currently being used by virtually all cellphones and video game consoles on the market today would open up an incredible number of opportunities to grow the convenience and portability our every day gamer typically looks for. 

 In comparison with the Xbox Kinect and the Nintendo Wii, instead of holding a wand or controller, which would then interact with the console through a sensor bar, the watch IS the controller, sensing and interacting directly to a compatible application downloaded on a Smart TV. Using the Cloud, user preferences, account information, achievements and saved games would be accessible with a simple voice or remote command. There would potentially no longer be a need for hard drives or controllers or fragile (and expensive) gaming CDs, thereby creating an effortless gaming experience with the physicality of a kinect-style console and the access of a cellphone.

 I am open to any comments or suggestions you may have and look forward to hearing your thoughts on this one. 

 I appreciate your time,
