{December 25, 2018}   Disapointed Kids

I am so aggervated and I know I shouldn’t be, that I need to consider the source. I am and I am more aggervated over the source and it running its mouth than what it is saying.

I told you the mess I went through trying to get the kids things for Christmas and everything. Well first it was I can’t believe you got them that they don’t need it amd this other one I should of gotten them. But they don’t need a game because that is all they do. Well I work 10 to 11 hour days out of the house about 12, 3 days a week the two I am off by 5 I am still not in until 5:30 if I don’t have to do anything after work. If I have anything to do like going to the store for her or what I am not home until 7 maybe 6:30. But later most the time. It is dark at 6 and littles go to bed at 7/7:30 and 8:30/9. We have no time to get out and do things or go outside. Sundays we will go to the park or something or be lazy.

If she is not there the kids do go out and play even if I am not home. Her being the way she is they don’t bother to. She have a fit they don’t need to be out their alone and what they could or couldn’t do and everything. They don’t want to put up with her and I can’t be fighting with her from work over the phone. So they watch tv play games on the computer or tv.

Now I find the other things that I want and decide to do something different it’s how cheap I am and how disappointed my kids are going to be and she can’t believe that is all I am going to give them. How if everyone else don’t give them something they are getting nothing.

My kids are use to getting 3 to 5 gifts each. They get a new pair of pj’s and an ornament to go with that. So it works out to 5 to 7 things each. Normally their pj’s and ornaments I put in their stocking and give them the night before. So there isn’t stalkings for say. There are they just don’t have a bunch of tiny thing in them or candy. I was not going to do ornaments or pj’s this year at all with buying the thing for all 4 of them trying not to spend even more money knowing I still had to pay the other off. Then I decided to go ahead and do PJ’s but knew I may have to return them depending how things played out. Little Bitty has been all about stockings so I picked up a few little games and coloring pages at the $1 place to make a little stocking and I will put a little candy in it. I also picked up card game or small game for each kid that will fit in them. They were like $5 each. So they are going to get those too.

I have a drone for both boys, oldest did not want one. I also have two smaller remote control cars for the boys. They are both getting an action figure they wanted.

I got oldest Minecraft for the computer she has been asking for. It was with in a few dollar’s of costing the same as the drones. I also got her a small 3D puzzle she has been wanting. I asked her if she would like one of the big ones or middle size ones she said no. She wants to start out with the smaller ones first try them. Then I got her a book she told my mom she wanted and she said she was going to get and then didn’t. The book gose with the game I got her so she can learn to do different things. i also got her a cup with candy in it she wanted.

Little Bitty got the hatchamal she wants, a doll and a my little pony styling head.

I feel they are getting things they want then it don’t matter. She take the $50 and find one big thing or bunch of little stuff that no one really wants or going to use. Just look like she got something great or she spent all this money. I rather have things they are going to use or asked for.

So all I have heard is how upset and disappointed “your” kids are going to be. Then told today how they are going to never know what a real Christmas is as long as they are with me. Because I didn’t buy a ton of candy, cookies and junk. I hadn’t even gotten to that yet and we don’t buy a ton of it. They have been baking cookies and cakes for weeks and eating. I was going to pick up a few things. I worked 11 hours Wednesday, Thursday and Friday then 10 Saturday. I had to wait for my check Friday and Monday to shop or finish shopping. Then I had the mess trying to figure it all out. I haven’t had time to bake and do all that.

I was already thinking about getting stuff to make fudge and cookies and doing next weekend. I have Sunday-Tuesday off and don’t have to worry about shopping, or anything like that. We can just relaxe and take our time.

 

 

 



{August 6, 2018}   Spam Comments

I noticed last night my spam comments said I had a bunch waiting for me to do something with them. I do not normally check it because it is all junk or nothing there.

I thought it was odd so I went and checked it out. I found a bunch of comments from you all that had been sent there the last few weeks. So if you commented and I didn’t like it or respond back I am sorry I probably just got them. I did approve all that needed it. Hopefully that won’t happen anymore. I don’t know. I will try to remember to keep a check on it.

It is odd because most were from people who comment a lot of times. And some have commented since they were sent to spam and they went through but others went to spam. Was like every other one or something was going through.

I don’t know but hopefully they will come in right now. I can remember to check it more now this is happening. Because i will always at least like a commen even if i do not have time to reply or what.

Don’t think I am ignoring you and stop commenting. I love to hear from you all.



{January 21, 2018}   Spam

Am I the only one getting a ton of spam comments the last few days? I just clicked through about 6 comments that were all spam from 3 or 4 people. Some who commented already and I marked as spam last time. I have never had so much spam in such a short time. A few everyone once in a while and none in a long time. Maybe it was just my turn since I had not had any in a long time I don’t know. They all say the same things just about even when they are from different names. Some form of two different comments. Like that isn’t a red flag from the start.

 



I have been so busy the last few weeks with starting school and then trying to get this house in order. I have got to go through everything and get rid of a lot of stuff. I just have no room for the things we want to keep and I am really working on being able to move by May of next year. I want to take the things we really need with us but I also know that we are carrying around way to much junk.

When we moved from my house in with RC we took some stuff and had a little bit stored and stuff still at my old house. Then I went back to my old house after everything that happen with me and RC. The way I was feeling and all that I was going through at the time I didn’t really go through anything when I left then I just through it all in boxes and moved. I have gotten rid of some stuff but still have pretty much just tossed in boxes and moved. I haven’t really carried just wanted to get it done. I rented at two different times a storage room to put our stuff in. I had to get one twice the size we shouldn’t have needed and it wasn’t because of furniture and things it was because we had so many boxes of shit. I have been trying to go through it all here but I just can’t seem to get on top of it. It seems like all I get done in a day is cooking, mopping, washing laundry, and cleaning the day to day stuff. If I try to do other stuff I have to stop and work on the day to day stuff or go to a appointment then by the time I get done it is time to do other stuff that has to be done. I feel like all I do is push the stuff in circles trying to move stuff to make room for other stuff and trying to get it all moved from the rooms it’s in to the rooms it needs to be in. I had a good dent in it the other week and why I was busy my little’s got into it all and mixed everything up and mixed all the keep stuff with the to go stuff. I am working on getting it all straight again.

School Is going ok I have been working on it between everything else I have to do, mostly at night after the kids go to bed. Why I haven’t been on here because I normally would come here after the kids go to bed. I have a 100% in my Comp 1 class right now but after turning in my stuff that was due last night I don’t know if I am going to still have that. Well I know I’m not because I didn’t get to post a reply to two people in the discussion boards. Plus my post was not really about sports like it asked for. I don’t watch, play, or keep track of sports I have no interest in them what so ever. The assignment was about sports and comparing a story to what we see go on in sports today. I compared it to the work force and the over all survival of the fittest because to me it was all the same. I reply to one persons post be we are supposed to reply to two. We also had to do a 500 word essay on a role we play in life. I had a really hard time with writing about it and was working on it up until the last few minutes. Then I had trouble with the computer and inter net, I got it turned in at 11:57 pm and it is due by 11:59. I was just happy the computer and net started working and I got it in with the two minutes to spear because if I had turned it in even a few minutes late I would have not been able to get anything higher than a C. I didn’t want to start with a C for them to start taking a way from for anything I missed. I was surprised I finally got my grade for last weeks 500 word essay. It was a narrative and I felt I did pretty good on it but didn’t expect to get 100 points out of a 100 on it.

My Personal Finance class isn’t to bad, now that I have it figured out. The first week and the first quiz I bombed. I didn’t get any of the questions right, it didn’t help that it was only 4 questions either. I had studied and studied the work we had to do and did good on it. I thought I was ready to take the test so I started to take it and it wasn’t really what we went over on the work we did. It was all math problems that had to be worked out and I hadn’t really studied that part because the way I understood it was that what was on the work we were doing would be on the quiz and it wasn’t. Once I knew that I knew I needed to look at the other stuff that isn’t on the work we have to do a little closer now. My next quiz I got 16.67 out of 20 so I was happy with that. It says I have a 73% over all for the class but she drops our two lowest grades for quizzes and assignments so if she drops the one I got the 0 on and I do really good the rest of the class then I should be ok. With dropping that one 0 will bring my grade to a 90 something %.

I love that all the grades are posted right on our page on line so that we can see them and keep track of grades as they are put in. Like with my finance class the teacher put in on of my grades as a % instead of just a number it brought my grade down to a 63% instead of %73. Then I sent her a message and told her she put it in as a 1 instead of a 10 I knew it should be a 10 because when I did the work it grades it as you go it said I had gotten the full 10 points. At least with the grades posted I can see when something is wrong right a way and let them know instead of once they are all done and given to us and then waiting on them to go back and figure out where it is and fix it. I can look say this is where it is this is what I have it should be and go from there. I like that we can put grades in to see what our over all grade would be if we get this or that on a test or page too. Then it just 0’s out and goes back to regular grades.

I have so much to catch up on here but I have to go for now. I have to get the kids lunch and then study for my quiz that is do before midnight tonight and take it. Then I have to check and see what I have to do for this week so that I can get a start on it. But I think this week is a litter week so I should be able to get back tonight or later today and catch up most of it. Then I have to start working time in to write at least every few days or once a week to keep this from sitting forever like it has before. I really don’t like it when I it sits like that.
