Do your feelings get hurt easily?

I was thinking about this today. Do your feelings get hurt easily? I can take lots of stuff the wrong way or think people are being rude to me. Especially in person, like at the check out at wal-mart or some other store. In fact I think I take stuff the wrong way A LOT.

But as far as getting my feeling hurt, I'd say dh is almost the only one that can truly hurt my feelings.

Is that because I love him and I don't give a flip about the other people I deal with? I don't know. Maybe he's just a jerk. Maybe I'm too sensitive when it comes to him.

One of the great mysteries of life I guess. But I vote for jerk.

Vacation all I ever wanted, vacation time to get away

Now I have that song stuck in my head! Who sang that anyway?

Anywaaaaaaay, I want to go on vacation! Yes, I realize I just got back from vacation less than 2 months ago....your point being? I wanna go somewhere! *foot stomping tantrum*

I think I'm going to try to convince husband we need to take the kids to Red River, New Mexico, this summer. I want to go stay in a cabin and just hike around the mountains. That seems like a good family style vacation. Plus the kids can fish, brother has been dying to try out his new Superman fishing pole. And you can drive it in one long day from where we are!

Speaking of vacation, if you told your husband he HAS to take you somewhere with castles before you die where would you go? That's what I told husband I want to do for our 25th anniversary. Hopefully that comes along before I die! I'm thinking Ireland or Scotland but I really don't know. They do have castles there right? Help me plan my trip, tell me what I must see/do!

Supportive/catty posts

Do you ever read a post on a message board that is supposed to be supportive but you get the feeling that it's really meant to inspire feeling of fear and inadequacy? I've seen several by a person that on the surface seems really sweet and caring....but their post just rub me the wrong way.

Nothing obviously "wrong" with them, just the way they are written.

"I'm sorry you are going through are so much stronger than I am. If it was me I'd be blaming my (insert dh, kids, mother, motherinlaw here) I'd be thinking how could they do such a thing and having feelings of resentment towards them. Wow, you handled that so much better than me, I'd be laying in to them for being so careless, and blaming myself that it happened."

Do you see what I mean? Or is it just me? It seems to me like they are almost purposely trying to make the person get mad at their (insert dh, kids, etc here) Trying to stir shit without acutally doing it.

I don't know maybe it's me? Maybe I'm too cynical or something..... It just strikes me as odd. Or maybe I'm just a bitch like that.

Real Mothers Are.....

I've been tagged by Robin to write what Real Mothers Are. I've thought about it for a few days and here it goes.

Real Mothers Are sticky

Yep, sticky.

Ever notice how new moms seem to always have a little patch of slobber or spit up on their shoulder? I always did anyway, it was my badge of honor and I wore it proudly. I'm a MOM!and I have a wet shoulder from holding my precious baby.

Let's not forget the lovely full milk shirt I'm sure all mothers of newborns have worn!

Then they get older and want to kiss. Not a perfect pucker of a kiss but a full open mouthed slobbery baby kiss. Is there any better kiss in the world?

Toddler years come along and it's sticky fingers wanting to share their food with you. How can you refuse?!

Little kids finding worms, bugs and flowers for mom. And a little dirt thrown in for good measure. Thanks honey, I LOVE them. And I do! Going fishing and actually putting a worm on a hook! UGH, the things moms do for their kids. Taking the fish off the hook when they land that prize catch.

Staying up with sick kids. Cleaning up after sick kids and not batting an eye, never letting them know you'd rather be anywhere but there.

Eating your daughters latest food creation because she's decided she wants to invent a new food. Powdered sugar, brown sugar, water and butter mixed together can get a little sticky.

I've only got 8 years experience being a mom but belive me I'm still sticky. And I love every sticky second of it.

Oh boy how pathetic!

Robin inspired me so I went and created a map of where I've been. Not very many places actually. I need to travel more!


make your own map!

Mr. Humphries is free

RIP Mr. Humphries. I just read on MSN that the man that played Mr. Humphries on Are You Being Served died :( I love that show!

For a long time husband and I didn't have TV, all we could get was PBS so we watched a lot of it LOL! One of our favorite shows was Are You Being Served.

"Mr. Humphries are you free?"

"They will ride up with wear" "They will ride down with wear" depending if the pants were too long or too short. I still use that quote.

Young Mr. Grace, the lady with the crazy colored hair.....can't remember her name right now, all the characters were great!!!!

So RIP Mr. Humphries.........

Did you see that?

There it goes again! Did you see that blur?

It's meeeeeeeeeee! We finally decided to join the 21st century and get high speed internet. Bye bye dial are gone forever!

I'm so loving this. I can finally surf the web at home. Maybe I'll even start posting here more.

Not much going on here. I had to go to T-town this last weekend for some boring meetings. I got lost on my way. Got to stay at a nice hotel by myself, had room service, went shopping (didn't buy anything for myself) and got a bunch of information shoved in my brain. It was interesting in a boring sort of way or should that be boring in an interesting sort of way?

Anyway, I'm home now and feel like I didn't have a weekend so it's back to work for me.

Dh survived with the kids and even managed to get them to a birthday party WOOHOO! I knew he could do it.
