    Well maybe you should've told me that you didn't have a secret laboratory in your house before I yanked all the books off your bookshelf. That really grinds my gears

    Dripping gasoline on your cars paint after fueling.
    No matter how careful I am when I pull the nozzle out, it happens:banghead:
    Trivial, I know. :rolleyes:

    Not trivial one bit.

    When fueling my bike (the only thing with decent paint on it), I hold a few paper towels around the nozzle as I draw it out. Not a drop on the paint.

    Hey, we got sleet and ice today! I wish we had warm enough weather for a bike-washing and subsequent pollen-sticking!

    If watching the big-screen TV with your pants off and a bag of Doritos is wrong, then they shouldn't have couches at this Best Buy. That really grinds my gears.

    All I can say for me about my biological so called mother is . And this is how I make it through without feeling or thinking about how venimous and how much I h'''' the woman . I tell myself she did the best she could with what she had . I raised myself . I tell myself I wont do what she did. . And the times I see myself acting or doing something like her or if I see that I am on her pathe . Yes I beat myself up a bit try not to. But I stop and do the opposite. Sometimes I dont catch it immediately. At least I catch it. I wull never speak or be around my so called mom or sister . I havent seen or spoken ti them or allowed these to woman in my childrens life or mine for 3 yrs . And for damn good reasons. The list is long , but the last thing the straw that broke the camels back was unforgivable . Family is supposed to be number one always. These two woman were so jelous of me always thinking its a competion. Sorry but a mother isnt suppose to compete or try to with their daughter. The mother is supposed to care and be helpful. Ok ok I stop now. Enough said . Maybe some other tume.

    Rant away....My mother hit us with lawsuit papers in 2008, because her husband wanted her house. My children were 11, 13 and 16. I told them that I would never keep them from her. They chose not to see her. Always offer. She sent them birthday cards, they sent them back unopened. Son begged her to at least come to his Bar Mitzvah ceremony. (I wasn't inviting her to party....) Grandparents bless their grandchildren in my Temple. She refused. My son says she is dead. Pretty sad.

    And you are going to get more - there's another system coming through on Wed. We breed them and you get the results.

    Thunderstorms start in the lee of the Rockies - they pick up strength and other nastiness as they move over the plains.

    Family isn't the be all and end all for everyone. Never was, never will be despite what sociologists and society say. There's no use trying to make everyone feel that way or feel guilty for not feeling that way.

    Here is what deal is . My sister is a lazy ass b.... before she gave her daughter away to the woman who didnt raise us. I every single morning after my boys got on school bus . I would go to my sis house .visit my oinka boinka oh thats what I use to call my nephew . And get my niece ready for school I would do her hair dress her . And drive her to school. I did this for 4 months straight . Then my sister decided she needed a break for giid and our mother took my niece . My sis didnt want her there . Either did I but not my choice. Anyway. My sis after a few days says to me she didnt want her daughter at our moms wanted me to take her. Alsi because I dint live that far from her hiuse si she could see her daughter whdn she wanted and also my nieces school was only a five min drive away. . Alright so I was more than happy to have my girl I loved love that little girl as if she was my own. Needless to say our mother was pissed by this . So doung what she does best start drama and crap.because she feeds off it. I brought my niece up to her house so she could have her for a few nights. fabricated the most terrible ungodly unforgivable lie. Told it to my sister had her freaking . Then I get a call from my sis saying that my son did something to her daughter. This was all lies. Then after phone call she hung up two days later sheriff at my door with an ofp against me. For two years. There was an investigation .which came up with nothing was closed. Social services then that aslo was closed . My mom had my niece lie in beginnig . After that my niece because it was a lie. When questioned by s.s and therapists asked her to point on a doll where my kid supposedly touched her. She point ed to her arm and then her leg . Because when all the kids wrestle .well u get what im sayin . It put my son my family at my house through alot of turmoil.oh ya then in order for my sister to get the order for protection not a restraining order because then she would have had to pay out of pocket. Lied and said I threatened to kill her and her family . She was afraid for her life. . This is something that didnt happen either. Ofp's are for a reason and for woman who really need them . And need protection. And I know that one too. Anyway . I could go on and on . Ive already disclosed enough persobal shit to choke a horse. My mom after two yrs tried apologies after another. My kids and I decided after 2 and a half yrs . Also because my niece was crying and begging for her cousins and for me. That we would try . That didnt last long . My mother said some dirt to my kids trying ti start crap. That my kuds said never again and thats how I feel. My sis I still haven't spoken or seen her for 3and a half yrs. But she still talks crap about me making up stuff. Christ for someone who really didnt know me. And now has no clue about me . Sure seems to have it all figured out. All I can say to that is . Forget that and them . . .

    I find it stupidly humorous how people can be so judgemental . Havent met me dont REALLY know me . But im this and that because someone else said so. To heck with people like that I do not have the time or the energy to waste on that. They say cant judge a book by its cover. . As u said before these gals are and have always been jelius of me . U refuse to be like them or associate with them or their people.

    . Their just mad cause my babies daddy told them I could take their man . Or have any man I want. Lol .
    Seriously though this is what he said. .
    Please dont judge me for repeating that. You gotta find and see the humor in it though.
    My mother has done alot of terrible crimes. The irs is even got her because she tried claiming my boys that live with me.
    And yada yada . Yawn . K im done now.

    NEXT
    Lol . Its all good . It really is . Im a smart ,streetmart, chick . I jnow I have alot to learn . But . at same time . I know I have alot to offer when it comes to certain things situatiins . When asked for help. I have lived a life of a 55 yr old. Im not being arrogant and this does not make me arrogant . Im just saying I am a hell of a resource when it comes to helping out a woman who is in need . Ive been there and was walked through alot. . Now I am on a learning kick . Android android computers. Always wanted to now have opportunity .

    And now I honestly dont have a clue where I am going with this . Guess im rambling . Sorry bout that .
    I can also listen .(hint to self . Be quiet now )
    Lol.

    Maybe I didn't make it so clear in my rant but ..I was ranting about my birthday
    coming up.. :rolleyes: It's not till Wednesday...However, I will happily and gratefully accept the Birthday wishes..Thank you very Much!!



    PS..I'm feeling better about it now too..Think it's just especially hard for me for certain reasons and I hissy fit and get scared about it sometimes but..I realize that It's who you are on the inside that counts and I have a lot to be grateful for and to look forward to and...I won't babble on



    oh yeah...plus.. also I got carded for my ID at dinner when I was with friends for a " girls night out" Saturday night...

    ..and then later .. a much younger bartender tried to hit on me ..so...;):p:D


    anyway..

    Thank you for the birthday luv:)
