But I heard………….

Working with the public certainly leaves you open to not only compliments but criticism.

Especially if you work for the government.
Especially if you work with seniors.

Senior: “I heard I was going to get all kinds of money back from the President.”

Zelzee: “If you’re on Social security or SSI you will get back $250.00.”

Senior: “No. It’s more than that. Sadie next door told me this nice new President was   gonna give me back thousands.”

Zelzee: “Believe me, the Economic Recovery Payment is only $250.00. I’m not sure where Sadie got her information.”

Senior: “Hmphh! Sadies cousin Bella Mae heard it from her neighbors brother’s uncle that it was gonna be thousands.”

Zelzee: “They are mistaken, It will only be $250.00”

Senior: “I thought you were smart! The lady that was here before you knew everything!”

Yeah……………well, you’re stuck with me………………….!

baby

“Mommy, where do babies come from?”

My sweet little daughter Earth Child was becoming more and more persistent. She was not buying the “miracle from heaven” story any more.

When my son started asking questions, I did what any good mother would do………I told him to go and ask his father.

Well, it was my turn with daughter.

I tried to make it as age appropriate as possible. Giving her some facts without way too much detail. In fact, I was quite proud of myself, being sensitive to her absorption of the ’facts of life’.

When I was done with my “mother to daughter” talk, she looked at me with a wrinkled up nose, her face skewered in disgust………..

“Oh, gross………………and you had to do that TWO times!!!!!”

Yup………..only twice……………..

This One’s For You

Monday, May 4th, 2009

 

Once in awhile a song comes along with just the perfect lyrics:

To you my dear Ex-husband ………….

Now you know what I am singing at the top of my lungs as I drive around with a big smile on my face………………………

All American Rejects — Gives You Hell lyrics
 I wake up every evening, with a big smile on my face
And it never feels out of place
And your still probably working at a 9 to 5 pace
I wonder how bad that tastes
 

When you see my face
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell

Now wheres you picket fence love
And wheres that shiny car,
And did it ever get you far
You’ve never seem so tense love
I’ve never seen you fall so hard,
Do you know where you are

And truth be told I miss you
And truth be told I’m lying

When you see my face
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
If you find a man that’s worth a damn and treats you well
Then he’s a fool, your just as well, hope it gives you hell

Hope it gives you hell
Tomorrow you’ll be thinking to yourself
Where’d it all go wrong, the list goes on and on

And truth be told I miss you
And truth be told I’m lying

When you see my face
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
If you find a man that’s worth a damn and treats you well
Then he’s a fool, your just as well, hope it gives you hell
Now you’ll never see, what you’ve done to me
You can take back your memories they’re no good to me
And here’s all your lies,
You can look me in my eyes
With that sad sad look that you wear so well

When you see my face
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
If you find a man that’s worth a damn and treats you well
Then he’s a fool, your just as well, hope it gives you hell

When you see my face
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
When you hear this song and sing along oh you’ll never tell
Then you’re the fool, I’m just as well
Hope it gives you hell
When you hear this song I hope that it will give you hell
You can sing along I hope that it will treat you well

Now I Have To Think……………

I was tagged by Hotfessional to list 7 things that I love.

I have never done a meme…(I know it’s always all about me)……and I really never thought I would do one………………..but I love Hot! And I don’t think she really knows how boring I really am! So now, instead of just rambling on my post I have to stop and do some thinking…..

One more thing……….she says I have to obey the rules.  I’m old enough to be her mother, and she’s giving me orders.  (Okay, okay, already……I’ll stop my whining).  Rules are: I have to pass this award on to 7 friends.  

7 Things I Love:

  1. Crisp fresh sheets on my bed at night
  2. Chocolate
  3. Big dangly, trampy earrings
  4. Drinking coffee at sunrise on my back patio (summer of course)
  5. Any Italian food
  6. Spanx
  7. My grandchildrens little arms wrapped around my neck

Now I have to tag 7 blogs that I think will participate.   And, you know this was actually less painful than I thought it would be. Hot’s right, though………..it’s a cool button!

Phat Mama @ Big Ass & Lots Of Sass
koko-lotus @ kokolotus
Hyphen Mama @ Mommy Needs 5 Minutes
Emily @ A Shot In The Dark
Jessica @ BERNTHIS
Melissa @ From Here To There and Everywhere
Mary Anne @ The Stiletto Mom

I love all of you out there…………thank you for making me feel so welcome in bloggy world!
