just how rough is middle school?

my son, my soon to be 11 year old son got an NRA membership card in the mail today....
I do not have a problem having a gun in out house nor do I have issue with my son being taught how to fire & care for and respect a weapon when he is older, when my husband decides it's time to take him to the gun range. I am however not so thrilled with the NRA soliciting my son especially not at the age of 11.

Meatfest panic sets in

uh huh it's tomorrow and did I get my to-do list done slow & steady all week as planned? Why of course not hell I still have to run to the grocery store & finish picking up a few things or maybe I just wait and go first thing in the morning...nothing like waiting till the absolute last minute is there?

some days it's like working for your grandparents

the music is too loud
the music is too rock 'n' roll
the music is too weird......
did I mention I work at a record store?

big man on campus

C's grand return to summer camp/daycare where he is beloved & looked up to by all....vaguely reminiscent of Norm's grand entrances on Cheers. He is anxiously awaiting for his bestest bud who will join him next week.

good grief it's birthday time again

C is in birthday mode serious crazy birthday mode...paintball was his first choice but it seems a bit pricey and you are at the mercy of the weather so I am pushing for an indoor choice. And can I tell you more and more these birthdays seem like planning tactical maneuvers!

yeah my car would be the first one they pick

out running errands yesterday and made eye contact with an older gentleman climbing off his motorcycle and it was one of those moments you just know he is gonna talk to you and sure enough he asks me if I just locked my car. Since he saw me hit my key and heard the honk it was kinda of a dumb question but he continued on that I should not lock my car in that manner because someone could be in the parking lot with a device that could copy the code and break into my car & steal stuff. Personally if they are going to break into my car I would prefer they not break a window so stealing the code an improvement, not much to steal however, the towel the dog slobbered on when I took him to the vet last week? empty coffee cup I have been to lazy to throw out? some nasty fries the kid dropped? the sweater I left in the car because the weather can't decide what season this is yet? please feel free to take what you want. Of course out of all the cars in the parking lot there were quite a few that were much nicer & newer than mine so I am seriously doubting mine would be the first choice in the grand scheme of larceny. Little old man just came across as creepy not so much helpful.
