Bitches




Side note- I wanted to title this entry "Cattyness", but I'm not totally sure if it's spelled like that, or as cattiness*, so, Bitches will do. :)

I'm finding myself sitting here tonight wonder why there is so much hatred in the world, why so much rudeness? I've seen it first hand this week- although the issues have been very mild, I've seen it. Both ironically have been in the facebook world, and I'm considering just deleting my page altogether. Just tonight, I actually had a girl tell me that I have NO CLASS because I said that I hoped a football team would lose! Seriously people, who gives a rats ass about football enough to insult someone they don't even know. Who?! As much as I would really just love to give people a peace of my mind, I try really, really hard to not hurt other's feelings, or put them down. I want my kids to be good people when they grow up, and I do try to lead by example. And so anyway, here is my virtual toast to you, BITCHES, for being just that- bitches.

I feel better now ;)

This weekend has been very nice and relaxing. Today we rented a boat, and explored our town from the other side- the water. It was a really nice day, despite the fact that son hated the boat. Yup, my son who loves nothing but being home and playing, also hates boats. He was saying "I don't want it, I don't want it" long before we ever even got on the boat. We took our chances anyway, and after a little bit of crying he finally settled down and just spent the rest of the trip laying on me. His ears are really sensitive lately, and he seems to cover them a lot when something is loud, so he spent part of the time on me, ears covered. He survived though, and I'm hoping the next time we try it, it won't be so bad.

The highlight of the trip was when husband was going wide open, which mind you is not that fast in the minivan of the sea pontoon boat, and we came upon a sand bar, literally in the middle of a really deep river. Granted we were only going about 20mph, but then we came to an abrupt stop, and quickly realized what happened. Husband freaked, and starts the motor full speed ahead, and we're going nowhere. I finally convince him to settle down, and we decide there's no other option but to push the boat. So, in the middle of our very deep river, husband gets out. The water is not even waist deep, and he pushes us out of there to safety.

Of all days to forget my camera... !

I'm seriously thinking I should talk him into a re-enactment so that I can catch it in print ;) Once we got out of there and headed back towards the dock, we saw the rather large, bright red, buoys that were a giant warning to stay out of that area.

Note to self: when boating, look for red buoys. And try to avoid boating at low tide, for obvious reasons.


Tomorrow I'm determined to hunt down this really cute dress that I saw in the old town the other day, and to hopefully take some pictures too. As much as I bitch about living somewhere boring, I honestly do love living in Florida. And if you catch me in the right mood, the beauty of the old town definitely gets me :) It's never occurred to me to actually photograph where we live, because that is quite tourist-y, but in that, I realized that I have no pictures of our new town, and that's something I may want one day. In fact, I know it's something I'll want, I wanted it last week ;) So tomorrow I'm on a mission.

This next week is going to be really busy, lots of house cleaning to do, and packing, and did I mention that I'm leaving for Jamaica in just one (hopefully short) week? :)







*((According to spell check, it's cattiness, but Bitches has grown on me)). My blog, my rules. ;)

Ironic...I got the bitches over a football game tonight too...overall...I think that people *in general, not all* are petty...I'm glad you had a good day...and I want to see pictures!!

I think people feel a brazenness on-line, hiding behind computer screens that they don't have in real life.

It's much easier to jump all over people when you're not face to face. Not that that is any excuse, but it does seem to happen.

I hate cattiness. I hate drama. I'm all about peace and calm. But don't delete your page. Pretty please?

I'd love to see where you live. That's one area of Florida I've never seen and I'm very interested...I've heard it's a beautiful place.

Parker only wants to play inside in his room too. And he's VERY sensitive to certain noises. At school, he often wears a pair of ear muffs (I guess that's what you'd call them only they're not fuzzy)...to tone down the noises.

I'm so envious of your trip! Wish I could go. :)

XOXO

I love your new background!

yeah...eff the bitches. I joke with people all the time about football, some people do get pissy..screw them, life's too short!
lord, I hope you're not a cowgirls fan ;)

At least the bitches are on the computer though :) my neighbor has gone uber bitch (well I call her the c word..but I can't splatter that all over your comments) ..and it's all because I don't want to be friends with her anymore because she's such a bitch. I try to act grown and ignore her but every now and again I have to go bang on her door and kindly ask her to remove her motherluvin speakers from my wall.

oops, kinda went off there!

You have a great time in Jamaica! I'm totally jealous...if you have any room left in your bag, I'll be there ;)

Love the new background! Jealous of the boat trip! I'm addicted to facebook and not afraid to tell complete strangers what I really think if football.

My sister and I are heading to your town this week to take some photos for my sister's photography business, and I want a picture in my new bathroom of a really old headstone. (Gray bathroom, dark personality. It'll totally work.)

When Punk hears a loud noise she doesn't like she says, "What's that lousy noise?" I asked her once why the word lousy? She said it is loud and noisy, thus lousy.

Have a great time on your Jamaica trip! Take lots of pictures for us!

Love this background!

I think Bitches is a perfect title :) I'm really over people being rude online. I don't say things online that I wouldn't say in "real life"... I wish others would abide by that rule as well. Don't delete your page!

I hope you do take pictures of your town. I love the area that you live, it really is beautiful around there. I would love to see Florida through the eyes of a person who actually lives there. And maybe you can get a picture of that tree while you're at it! Lol

I am insanely jealous that you are going to Jamaica! Do you think I would fit in your carry-on bag??

Kaileigh said...

I know exactly what you mean...I don't understand why people even say things just to be mean... when all they have to do is ignore it! Geez, if you don't like it, don't read it, right? I don't think I'll ever understand.

Can't wait to see the pics of your town!!

clauren said...

I'm coming with!!

xoxo

I don't know why people do the stupid things they do, it just seems to be something that always happens. I would recommend deleting anyone that is a bitch to you on facebook it would take care of that problem. On another note, I'm glad to hear you had some fun boating and had a good weekend.
