Spring is in the air.

Garage Sales all over the place. Farmers planting cotton.   
Out pulling weeds in yard for over 3 hours today, weeding and feeding grass.
Sweating big time.
I think spring is in the air. 

Trees are turning green. 

Wind is picking up. 

Ocean water warming up. 

Yep its spring in South Texas once again.

A summary of Obamacare!

This was on my facebook this week thought I would share if you haven't seen it. 

Let me get this straight . . . ..

We're going to be "gifted" with a health care
plan we are forced to purchase and
fined if we don't,

Which purportedly covers at least
ten million more people,
without adding a single new doctor,
but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,

written by a committee whose chairman
says he doesn't understand it,

passed by a Congress that didn't read it but
exempted themselves from it,

and signed by a President who smokes,

with funding administered by a treasury chief
who didn't pay his taxes,

for which we'll be taxed for four years before
any benefits take effect,

by a government which has
already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,

all to be overseen by a surgeon general
who is obese,

and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!

'What the heck could
possibly go wrong?'

Wow alot going on?

Gas prices jumping high over $3.00 a gallon and heard it could even get up to $5.00 a gallon. Looks like we will be staying at home watching movies off nexflix. 

Wisconsin going through alot trying to get things in order. I don't think they will be the only state to go through this. I for see many more states going that path.

I don't know what to think of it. Yes we need to watch and take care of our teachers so they can take care of your kids.
But, like I said before do we need castle to teach them in. 

I don't know where the world is going but I don't think it looks good. 


I finally made a dentist appointment to go to the dentist and those who don't know me. 
This is a big step for me.  I hate dentist. Nothing personal I just can't stand the place.
I hope and pray all my work gets done fast and I am on the road to recovery really fast.

Should I be Happy, Mad, Sad, Scared or What?

I don't know what to think of this news. 

Read today in the paper that it looked like Texas was going to pass the law, where it is ok for students to carry guns on campus.

I don't know if I should be Happy, Mad, Sad, Scared or just wondering what will happen now?

To me letting people of any kind carry a weapon in a crowd is like open the door to china store and letting a bull in. 

People have argue issue,  yes some know how to control it others don't. Doesn't make us all bad, but could end up  to be a scary  thing.

There is so much bully going on. What will happen if someone had enough of bully?  Don't want to think of it.

Maybe I am making to much out of this, maybe I shouldn't worry.  But, I  seen what happens when someone has a gun on campus it just scares me.

Wow! Who would of thought aging would be so much fun!. LOL 

This menopause stuff sometimes try to get the best the me. But, I keep tell it no way.
Does it listen to me not all the time. 

One week I can't sleep for nothing, no matter what I do. Finally taking something to help me sleep. The next week can't stay awake for anything, no matter how much sleep I get I am always tired.
Have trouble getting out bed. 

Hot flashes not bad they come and go, but so far nothing I can't handle. 

But, I would like to know who's idea was it for women to go through menopause, don't you think we did enough with having our periods at a young age, then giving birth.  Guess not!

Well if you read a newspaper, had tv on or listen to the radio you all have heard by now they are planning on cutting all school budget.  

I know alot of people are up in arms about it. I am too.  But, hey some of the things they do in the school has nothing to do with learning. Come on really. 

Does your child need a castle to learn in? No    Yes they need a safe and well kept area, but it doesn't need to be a castle. 

Does your child need there own indoor  swimming pool to do school in? No.   They can use the community swimming pool.

Does your child need a grand Theater to do school in?   No we used the school gym, bleachers and folding chair for family members to come and see our once, maybe twice a year play.  

We did fine and all got a great round of education.   

I just don't get where we think we have to have everything so high and pricey.  First of all the children don't care of it. It takes more people to watch the children so the property isn't damage. 

Why can't in the kitchen  go back to hard plastic trays with real forks and not have the throw away ones.  That cost money. Yes it cost money to watch them but I do feel it would be cheaper in the long run. 

Need to stop the pk-3 and pk-4 year old. That cost more money.  Those children need to be home, being kids or in day cares if parents have to work. 

There is tons and tons of ways to cut the budget they don't need to mess with the child education.
The teachers need more money I will agree but until they stop wasting all this useless money, teacher's wouldn't get a raise.  

Teacher's need to go back and be teacher. Not friends to the student, they need to be teacher. Yes, you can be nice.  But, they need to remember they are there to teacher not to make friends. 
They always need to dress like a teacher. 

If you want the children to respect you then you need to act and look like a teacher and you will gain the respect you all need and deserve.  

Now with that off my shoulder.  I will rest. LOL anyway I know what I have to say wouldn't go anywhere. Just needed to get this off my chest.  Anyone has any more points please post them love to hear them.

College here we come!

Spend the other day all day long with Oldest Wolf Daughter checking over college and getting papers filled out. 

Wow! They ask alot of question.  We are not wanting to buy the college. We  just want Oldest Daughter to take a few classes. You mean you really need to know all that just so Oldest Wolf Daughter can go to your school. Wow!  

Don't you think that is a little personally?

After about 4 hours of talking and filling out paper work, I looked at Oldest Wolf Daughter and said hey lets go look at the books that we need to get for the class. 

Oh My Stars!   What do they made these books out of?  First book she needs will cost us $150.00.
What?  We just want one book.  No we can't afford to buy for the whole class. Oh no Mam that is for one book.  I think wow where is defibrillator I think I need one right now.  What?  You are serious aren't you, it really cost that much for one book. 

Ok,  Why should one book cost that much? I really don't get it.  They know there is nothing you can do about as they need it for the class. 

I understand it takes time and people to make these books, but I don't think its that high.  

Any way  Daddy Wolf and I were tired of filling out paper work. We decide it was time to take a break and get the Wolf Daughters something to eat and think things over.  My Old mind was so full of information and my hand was so tired of writing.  I needed a Dr. Pepper.

Well after a long lunch we decide we have to do what we can to get our Wolf Daughters there education even if it cost $150.00 for a book.  But, I will always wonder why?

Got this in my e mail today.

Open my e mail box today and once again my good friend sent them this. Thought I would share it with you all. Thought it was great. 

"I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts."

"On my holiday to Goa in India , I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food at all."

A woman threatened to call police after claiming that she'd been locked in by staff. When in fact, she had mistaken the "do not disturb" sign on the back of the door as a warning to remain in the room.

"The beach was too sandy."

"We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as yellow but it was white."

"We bought 'Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five Euros (£3.50) from a street trader, only to find out they were fake."

"No-one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled."

"It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England it only took the Americans three hours to get home."

"I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends' three-bedroom apartment and ours was significantly smaller."

"There are too many Spanish people. The receptionist speaks Spanish. The food is Spanish. Too many foreigners." (related to a vacation spent in Spain)

"We had to queue outside with no air conditioning."

"It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel."

"I was bitten by a mosquito - no-one said they could bite."

"The brochure stated: 'No hairdressers at the accommodation'. We're trainee hairdressers - will we be OK staying here?"

Thanks Jackie this is cute.

Nice thought for Friday!

With time women gain weight. We accumulate so much information & wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our body. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated & happy. Beginning today, when I look at my belly in the mirror I will think- "good grief look how smart I am, I must be a genius!!" ~

You wonder where kids come up with things?

You wonder where kids come up with so many cute things. But, when they talk to you they are so serious  they don't even crack a smile.

Today, Wolf Daughter and I were out walking and ran into the little boy next door. His mother told him to close the door he looked at her with the most serious face. 

Mom:  Please shut the door son.
Son: Mom you might think I was born yesterday, but I wasn't I was born 4 years ago. 
Mom:  No Son, just please close the door. 
Son:  Then you probably think I was born in the barn. 
Mom: No Son I don't 
Son:  I wasn't I was born in the hospital. 

Oh My Stars I thought I was going to wet my pants.   I was trying not to laugh.  Wolf Daughter and I went on walking laughing our heads off.

Things that come out of the mouths of babies.

Always want what we can't have!

You know we adults are here trying to teach our children to do this and do that and do it right and then we turn around and do something we know we shouldn't do. 

What I am talking about is on Friday, Texas got a lot of ice and it was on the road.  The weather man was telling us for days to get ready for this one. Yea I know sometimes its hard to believe them but when they came down to the last day and said we had no way getting out this one.   Why?   can't you get ready for it? I don't understand. 

There were 100's of wreck through out the state. WHY?  One, people don't know how to drive in this stuff down here.  Two, we don't have the equipment and stuff to clear the roads.   

Now the weather man told everyone what time it was suppose to hit and when it hit it would come down as ice so a lot of the roads would be close.   

They closed all schools, government offices, libraries, garbage pick up and that stuff a day before the storm so everyone could get ready. 

Did everyone get ready?  NO  They all ( well guess I can't say all)  but a lot of them waited till the last minute to run to the store to get stuff just case the weather man was right and then when they got out of the store sure enough the weather man was right.   Now they were stuck.  Or they got in there car and try to drive away and that's what cause a lot of wrecks.   

Ok now they were yelling on tv PLEASE don't go anyone if you can help it, all main roads and bridge were close.  Well there goes half the state of Texas we have lots of bridge and over passes. 
Did people listen?  NO!  Once again they went sliding to there car, cleaned off the ice then got in and try driving. Ok my thought is if you slid to your car don't think the roads are full of ice.   Wow!  don't get it.  Was watching on the news that night and they were talking to a young couple who wanted to go out for pizza said it took them 20 minutes to clean the car off.  He fell 4 times doing it. Don't think you that was telling you something. Must not be.  They got in there car and wrecked it. 

I know I am lost here.   I don't get it.  I know we always want what we can't have. I know we hate to be told we can't do something. 
It reminds me of young child, if you want them to do something tell them the opposite.  

But, I guess my point here is if we are trying to teach our children, we adults need to start listening better. Maybe there wouldn't of been so many wrecks and hurt people if a lot more people would of listen. 

Sometimes the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

Woke up to a Ice Storm today!

Well Mother Nature is really having a bad month or winter season. We woke up to over a 1/2 inch of ice all over the places.  Roads close and bridges all over the South.  Nothings open.  100's of accident all over the city.  People still thinking they have to get out. I understand some do have to work but if you do please drive slowly and take your time.  Leave a little early if you have too.  Down here in the South we don't have the equipment to remove the stuff.  

The police officer and rescue people are working has hard as they can. I heard there are people stuck in there cars and hurt but the rescue people can't get to them, there are just to many accidents and not enough of them.   So, for everyone's safety please stay off the road unless its a emergency.  This will clear up and we all will be able to get out soon. The sun is suppose to come out soon.  Stay home and enjoy time with your family, with a good movie or book. 

Here's what we woke up too. Not in my back yard. But, down the street. 

down the road a bit. I think the trees look so pretty when walk outside and listen you can hear little crackling sounds coming from all the ice.  Its pretty but very dangerous. Hope all the trees and plants down here make it.  There not use or meet for this kind of weather. 

another one: was wondering if they left the sprinkler on. If not this poor tree is full.  I think alot of people and plants are praying and waiting for Mr. Sun Man to come out from behind the clouds soon.

They said they Hate being Homeschool!

Yesterday we were doing school when I got home from work and the girls look at Daddy Wolf and I and said we hate being homeschool.  Man my heart just fell to the floor.  I looked at them a second later but seem like a hour and said what?  Oldest Wolf Daughter is almost done what you talking about.   They said no you took it wrong. I said I hope so.  They said the reason they hate homeschool is because they never get  Snow Days,  Martin Luther King Day, or Teacher Days off. 

Wow after Daddy Wolf and I heard that we just looked at each other smile at each other in a sign of relief.  I looked at both Wolf Daughter's and said but we take other days off when other kids are in school and do things we want with out tons of others around and don't have to fight the crowd  and they agree.  LOL  

I am glad it wasn't nothing big.

Wow! Its cold in the South!

Old Man winter must be mad at us. Or Mother Nature is one or the other. Wow!  Woke up to some very cold temps. outside can't believe it. It was 28 degrees when I open my front door and with the winds blowing like they were it made it feel like 12 outside.  Now that is cold for us Southern people.  We just aren't ready for it.  Not only us but our plants they are tropical not meet for cold temps.

But, we will turn on the heat, put on some clothes, stay warm.    

And hope our wonderful friends and family up north stay warm and safe. Heard they are getting hit with not only cold temps but tons of snow.
