Meth Heads, Cigarette Lungs, & 50 year old Pedophiles…

In light of some recent real life discussions off the internets….here’s a repost from 2014 for your enjoyment on the internets…

Daynie begs me on the daily for internet or texting on her phone. (she doesn’t have a phone…my kids have our old phones with no service that we make them call “iPods”)

Poor kid…she will probably be the last kid in her grade to have a phone with interent…if she ever gets it.

tumblr_mc1zc4e2ng1r495xq

Yes..I’m one of THOSE moms.

I know the world is a-changing and kids with phones and Instagrams and Facebooks is now the norm….but I’m just not down yet.

7280d58bf6eef59d1fb0e55b47ab6d78

Believe me…my kids are in no way deprived.  $100 pair of Miss Me’s because all the girls have them? DONE. Retarded crazy band loom kit because all the kids at school play with them at recess? NO PROB.

Unlimited unsupervised access to the Devil’s realm aka the internet? NO WAY JOSE.

Devil

Nope. Not ganna happen.

There’s a whole lotta kids at Daynie’s school and in her grade that have phones or iPods with access to the internet. And judging by what I’ve seen….a whole lot unsupervised.

She has a couple of friends that actually follow ME on Instagram.  They are actually some of the first to “like” my stuff. And if you follow me you totally know I have NO FILTER.

I don’t believe I should have to censor myself because their parents don’t monitor who they follow. My Instagram is an extension of my blog. ON THE INTERNET. These kids in real life have never heard me say a cuss word. If they are following me doing or saying GROWN UP things on the internet…that is the responsibility of the parents…not me.

Side not then off my rant….I actually never think twice when I post…I just post whatever I feel because it’s MY IG….except one time back at Christmas…there was  this funny eCard.

I went to post it on my IG and actually stopped myself because I knew some of Daynie’s friends followed me and I didn’t want to ruin the magic of Christmas & Santa & the elves for them.  LOLOLOL.

See the logic there? I don’t give a shit about cussing and letting my crazy fly but I’m sure as hell not going to ruin that damn elf for them. Hahahaha.

Back to the internets. My kids “iPads” & iPods are locked down like prison. Disney & Temple Run are as cool as they get.

For all you folks with a little older kids…you REALLY need to check out this article on dangerous apps.

Most apps seem so harmless….and being immature little humans…they don’t understand the gravity of these situations. That’s why it’s our job as parents to be on top of this shit and monitor the hell out of our kids and their stuff!

Like Instagram…seems so simple & legit….I see these teeny boppers that have like 2500 followers. Ummm…WTH??!!?? How do I get some followage like that?? But for real…they can’t possibly know that many people. Little do they know…that hot boy from the next town over that keeps DMing them is really a 50 year old loser pedophile in his mom’s basement using that fake profile to gain access to them.

Are parents even cautioning their kids about this stuff?

I mean damn…I’m shoving before and after pics of meth heads and cigarette lungs in my kids faces every other dang day…

What’s a card catalog again?

That damn dress…

Oh. Mah. Gaw.

IMG_7609.JPG

This gaudy dress is breaking the internet!

IMG_7665.PNG

 

We’ve seen explanations as to why it is or isn’t white/gold or black/blue. From simple to complex to WTF.

(null)

 

“it’s about primal biology and the way human eyes and brains have evolved to see color in a sunlit world.

Light enters the eye through the lens—different wavelengths corresponding to different colors. The light hits the retina in the back of the eye where pigments fire up neural connections to the visual cortex, the part of the brain that processes those signals into an image. Critically, though, that first burst of light is made of whatever wavelengths are illuminating the world, reflecting off whatever you’re looking at. Without you having to worry about it, your brain figures out what color light is bouncing off the thing your eyes are looking at, and essentially subtracts that color from the “real” color of the object.”

I mean…I don’t know about alllll that BS craziness…all I know is:

IMG_7649.PNG

That dress is OBVIOUSLY white & gold.

IMG_7663.PNG

I have looked at it every which way possible. It don’t change. & the folks out there saying it changes…you crazy.

50 Shades of Christians…

I want to clarify something about my earlier post referencing the the “judgy holier than thou churchers” ….I am not talking about my church, which I love. Yes, I’m sure that there are a few there, as there are many in this world. But for the most part, my church is full of loving people that desire to love Jesus AND His people, despite their sins and differences. As I’m sure you are aware, I can be a bit over the top, rough around the edges, & full of sin. I have never walked into my church and felt anything less than welcome & loved. I go to church because I desire to be closer to God and church is the place I can do that. So please don’t generalize from my post that all church going Christians think they are better and will judge you. My church is proof that that is not true.

I do however want to caution those “holier than thou judgey Christians” about allowing the devil to use your passion for Christ to do his dirty work.

I am ALL about standing up for what you believe in and spreading The Message. BUT you should be careful in your pursuit so that you do not actually work against your cause by turning people away from Jesus and Christians and the Church. Be careful that your message is not seen as looking down on the person. When your message is one of judgement and condemnation, it is in fact YOUR message and not that of the Father.

Your message, delivery, and your hypocrisy are often what makes the unsaved uninterested and drives the saved away.

One thing I have learned from my social media & blog platforms is that people like to relate to other people and feel like they aren’t alone in their own struggles. They are turned off by fakes that try to project a perfect image. Therefore, when a person finds you unrelatable, they also find your message undesirable.

Back when I first began attending my church, I was intimidated by all the perfect little church couples everywhere, meanwhile I couldn’t even get my husband to attend. Then one day, a woman from one of those perfect little church couples opened up about her past struggles in her marriage and how years before they were close to divorce. For the first time since attending, I felt a connection. This couple that I viewed as perfect had the same struggles in life as the next guy. I could relate. From then on, I felt like a part of a church of people like me, not a sinner struggling to conform to a church full of perfect people.

Everyone sins. Be careful of judging others because they sin differently than you.

The big difference between me and you, is that I don’t try to hide my sin. I don’t flaunt it and celebrate it, but I also don’t pretend like it’s not there.

Be careful of the sins you point out in others. Sin is sin. So, my adultery and your white lie you just told your kid are one in the same in the eyes of the Lord.

Jesus loves me. PERIOD. I am going to Heaven. PERIOD. My sin doesn’t change either of those facts.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

As a saved follower of Christ should I try to be better everyday and hold myself to a higher standard? Absolutely.

But here’s where we will probably have a fork in the road.

To WHO’s standard shall I hold myself to? Yours?

The judgey Christian that has condemned a book & movie they have not seen nor read?

There is no debate that there is content in 50 shades that contains unchristian-like behavior. For instance, they are an unmarried couple engaging in sexual relations.    My husband and I lived together for 10 years before we got married. If a Christian thinks I shouldn’t watch this movie based on the adultery, then should people also have covered their eyes or refused to be around me and Danny before we were married?

As far as all the other particulars in the movie, who is to define right or wrong? I will judge it for me and you should judge it for you. But please, do not judge me for not judging it the same as you. In the end, God is the only judge that matters.

I am a mature adult capable of watching and/or exposing myself to anything and deciding how I will apply the experience in my life.

I don’t  believe watching this movie made be any less of a Christian or lover of Jesus. I didn’t commit adultery. I didn’t do anything sexually immoral. I didn’t lust. My husband was fine with me seeing it. If anything, it made me love & appreciate our marriage more. I enjoyed the love story and it was entertaining. The end. Plain & simple.

 

Everyone will take away a different experience from the movie, as with ANYTHING in life. Like I said in an earlier post…I chose to take away from this the story of a broken man that was saved by love from himself.

People in this world are flawed. Many are broken.  Followers of Christ should not turn their back on those people just because they are full of sin. Not everything in life is rainbows & butterflies, & buttermilk pie. Christians want to save, but they don’t want to get their hands dirty doing it.   The main character in the movie is one of those flawed broken people. His story is rough, graphic, and hard. But in the end he was changed.  I would love for it to have been Jesus that in the end saved him….but in the particular movie…it was love. And isn’t that what Jesus commands us to do? LOVE?

So that is my message. If Christians want to win the battle of good and evil, they should do it with LOVE. Concentrate on that when spreading your message, not what you percieve as the sins of others. But, really, what is your intention? Were you trying to win a soul over to Christ or bring the saved closer in their relationship by condemning their choice in entertainment? Doesn’t it seem like that is counter productive? In the grand scheme of things…what is worse…me watching a movie you don’t agree with, or you driving people further from Jesus in your quest to prove your image?

 

 

 

Thankful for friends that freak out…

So yesterday was one of those days.

1385011967137487

I woke up with a migraine.

And then my kids…oh my kids.

They are rotton little spoiled baby brats.

The minute they wake up they feel the need to come wake me up. So we can all be awake together.

Somecard1

 

They are 7 and 9. Perfectly capable ages of grabbing some powdered donuts and turning on the Disney Channel.

But still…I got up and made sure they were fed…got their friend off that stayed the night…and then took all the meds I could get my hands on, told them to keep their little loud mouths shut, and went back to bed with an ice pack to sleep it off.

shed

5…4…3…2…1…

All the fighting…all the running (on the top floor above my room), all the yelling, all the tattling. All the everything except peace and effing quiet.

Finally, I give up and get up to make sure they did the 2 things I asked so that we may leave to go make the stupid stupid dumb Wal-Mart trip and go clean the offices at work.

Those little monsters. Despite repeated warnings that my head was killing me and I wasn’t in the mood….they just kept on and on and on and on and freakin on.

They wouldn’t do anything I asked. Kept on with the attitudes, whining, rolling of their dang eyes, interrupting me when I try to speak with their attitude and smart remarks straight off the Disney Channel, and ect, ect, ect.

When I had both in my face pushing me past the point of no return…it happend…

shut-up

I went bat shit crazy on them.

Not just a little bat shit crazy either….a whole hell-of-a-lot bat shit crazy.

There may have been some cuss words. And jumping up and down.

cuss-a-kid-out

I went on and on and on.

1331738935078_4833447

I had them both crying. Garridon actually backed away from me and ran to a corner to cry. Daynie actually stormed off without storming off.

my-reaction-when-I-get-into-an-argument-with-women-homer-simpson-hide-in-bush-disappears

The best part of going nutso crazy on your kids…they are on their best behavior for a little while.

kids-cleaning-bathroom-clipart-kids-cleaning-bathroom-clipart-kawhpteq

The worst part…the mommy guilt.

MjAxMy03MmI5NTVlZDQzZjcxN2Jj

And that sets in for me pretty quick. I don’t let them know though. I’m going to ride that crazy train until the end of the track and get some use out of their good behavior after my meltdown.

What does all this have to do with my friends that freak out??!?

Everything..

As I was driving to Wal-Mart…aka HELL…I was going over in my mind my crazy little episode from earlier and feeling pretty horrible. And then..I thought about my friends and how I have witnessed  them freak out on their kids once or twice and I was suddenly flooded with thankfulness and peace.

It is important for me as a mom to know I’m not the only one that loses her shit at her kids. And it’s VERY important that my kids have witnessed these occasions and know that their friend’s moms lose their shit too.

10-

And so…all the kids and all the moms know that they don’t suck and the world hasn’t ended. Every kid pushes their mom to that point and every mom goes there. And when the air has cleared we are all still ok. Okay with each other and okay with ourselves. The love is still there. And then…we all try to be a little better next time.

I’m just incredibly thankful for friends that are REAL. They act normal around me and my kids so that we know that they are just like us. Relatable.

Unlike those fake Facebook mom’s that try to look perfect.

You know the ones…it’s always rainbows & lollipops and positivity all the damn time.ecards1-636

That life ain’t real.

ecardu5a8aa_35449

Just like I say about marriage…the more you try to sell it on Facebook…the worse it is.

So as I’m in my mommy guilt moment…I can roll my eyes at those fake Facebook moms and be thankful that I have friends that are as real as me.

 

 

 

Whaaaa?!?!….

It’s a sad day for my reality show addiction.

tumblr_lymkcbq3lw1ql5yr7o1_400

How could this happen? I was pretty shocked when I heard that Hank cheated on Kendra.

And I pretty much didn’t believe it when I heard it was with…whatever this is…

And then your dumb ass confirmed it and that you were lying by leaving the voicemail. Ummm…he/she told on you that you cheated with it…you thought it wouldn’t bust you out for leaving that voicemail? Hello…are you new to Hollywood?

Liz-lemon-eye-roll

For a hot minute it looked like Kendra was pulling a Tori & sticking by her cheating man.

But now…DISH NATION is reporting that she has finally dumped him.

Good for you Kendra! Bad for reality show loving American’s who still aren’t over Nick & Jessica.

The reality show curse strikes again!

ugly-cry

Speaking of the reality show curse…I found this little gem of an entry when I signed into my old BookFace awhile back….I wonder how many more couple we can add to the list since 2009! Unfortunately…I know of at least one more 🙁  Boo..Hank & Kendra. Boo. Are Sharon & Ozzy still together? It’s a bit funny to see how old this post was by the shows I watched. LOL…ASHLEE SIMPSON??? HAHAHAHAHA!

I guess you could say Facebook notes was kinda like my “blog” back in the day…

The Reality Show Curse
I am SO very upset by the split of Jon & Kate. I loved their show b/c they were so real. They didn’t sugar coat it for the cameras. But I guess…it really still is so real. Because divorce seems to be the norm. these days. I’m not even sure why divorce is an option in marriage. It shouldn’t be. Otherwise…what is the point of getting married in the first place?

Why can’t they do the right thing for their children and theirselves and STOP doing this reality show that has obviously changed them..and use their time & new money to put all the pieces back together? It breaks my heart!

I really still haven’t gotten over Nick & Jessica!

All I know is I def believe in the reality show curse. And I hope & pray that it doesn’t happen to Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar off of 18 kids and counting. Or to Josh & Anna, their oldest son & his new bride. Because then…I will be most absolutely without a doubt certain it’s the reality show curse!. For a couple and family so grounded in their faith & marriage…they are the LAST couple I would ever expect. So I pray that the reality show curse is NOT real. Because I def love these family based reality shows and like watching them…but don’t want anything to happen to them!

I LOVE Jon & Kate Plus 8 and hate this for them. And as much as I love the show…I wish they would quit doing it & save their family.

Just FYI…a list of couples doomed by the reality show curse:

1. Nick Lachey & Jessica Simpson- Newlyweds
2. Paris Hilton & Nicole Richey- The Simple Life (lol friends count!)
3. Jon & Kate Gosselin- Jon & Kate Plus 8
4. Hulk & Linda Hogan- Hogan Knows Best
5. Travis Barker & Shana Maokler- Meet the Barkers
6. Ashlee Simpson & Josh Henderson AND Ryan Cabrerra- The Ashlee Simpson Show
7. Kathy Griffin & Matt Maline- My Life on the D List
8. Brittany Spears & Kevin Federline- Chaotic
9. Dave Navarro & Carmen Electra -Til Death Do Us Part
10. Bobby Brown & Whitney Houston- Being Bobby Brown
11. Danny Bonaduce & Gretchen Hilmer- Breaking Bonaduce
12. Liza Mennellie & David Gest- Filmed ONE episode and they split
13. Bridgette Nielson & Flava Flav- Surreal Life & Strange Love
14. HUGH HEFFNER & Kendra & Bridgette & HOLLY- The Girls Next Door
And I soooo can not name off all the other Bachelor & that crap..

And no..I do not watch all these shows. Just some that I know of. The only ones I watched were Newlyweds, The Simple Life, Jon & Kate Plus 8, Hogan Knows Best, The Ashlee Simpson Show, a little of Chaotic, and The Girls Next Door (Before I moved to stupid Kilgore who has stupid cable that is stupid & doesn’t carry the best channel ever E!)

And…the ONLY couple so thus far survive reality tv….??? Sharon & Ozzy. Go figure.

GOMI & online bullies…

At the 2:02 mark.

Ellen: And most people that do say mean things, turns out are the cowards and the chickens. People that just stay behind their keyboard.

Shia: Well I think it’s, I wouldn’t even, I think we both suffer from the same thing. Ya know I got into this industry cause like I had this void ya know I’m a kid of abandonment. And uh, and so I thought being good at being an actor would somehow fill that void. And uh uh, well you know entertainment, a lot of entertainers are this way. And so I think, people, it’s really  you just wanna make a mark. So people who are online doing the comments , really just want to make a mark.  They wanna have the effect. So I think we suffer from the same thing which is just a lack of attention and love.

Ellen: Right, well said.  Yeah, I think no matter how you’re reaching for it everybody’s trying to fill themselves up in some way. And you got to do it yourself and you gotta find what it is that makes you feel whole and feel good.
