The latest

I had forgotten, for a bit how therapeutic it is for me to blog. I get busy with everything else in life and forget to stop and write it down. Speaking of busy, here’s what all is going on in our life.

Bowling! That is our newest and most time consuming hobby, we love it! It is something we can do together, that’s not out in the heat like golf, and we have fun. We have met some truly awesome people and really enjoy their company.

Work…Since March I have been kind of stressed about work due to being switched to a different team…I didn’t want to be, but it is finally looking up now. I am thinking about applying for a supervisor job, and I really think I would do good at it just for the simple fact that I am resourceful and available.

Pure Romance…I have had a few parties now, and really enjoy teaching women! That has been the two biggest compliments from almost every woman I talk to, they had fun and they learned something. That was my whole goal with starting this. It’s kind of hard in the summer to do parties, everyone is busy and I totally understand that. I am thinking it’s going to be a busy fall for me though and I am excited!

Colby…he has turned into the most wonderful teenager, his voice is so deep now and he probably needs to shave soon. He is a head taller than me too…I didn’t think growing up would happen so fast, but it has and it’s bittersweet. He is excited about getting back into public school and all of the classes he is going to take. He is so smart, I’m not sure where he got that from lol!!

Robert…his job at Fedex is so great now since he has a route closer to home. He gets home almost everyday by three o’clock. He loves it and so do I. As far as the baby making process, we have kind of just let it go. We are both ok with it if it happens and if not, then we will just keep going wide open with bowling, golfing, travel, work, and whatever else we can do that doesn’t require packing up everything to take a baby along too. We have peace about it.

So that is a little run down in case you were wondering. I have been working a lot of weekends lately and I am really excited about being off tomorrow and getting to go to my church. My best friend and I went to an old pastor of ours church last Sunday and it was great, but I miss my church. I haven’t been in about six or seven weeks now. I hope you all have a great day!!

Common courtesy

It’s what I believe this whole society lacks anymore. You see it on the roads, in stores, in movie theaters, and even in churches. Everyone is doing what they want to do no matter how it affects anyone else. Here are a couple of examples…

I was in Walmart (unfortunately) a few days ago, there was a log jam of people in the main aisle behind the registers. When we finally got going through, come to find out the cause was two women standing there talking, and a little girl about two or three pushing a plastic buggy out in the middle of the mob. The mother was oblivious to her daughters behavior, because she was in the way too…. I have stopped to talk to people before out in public, but I try to have enough respect for others to get out of their way.

Then another thing that happens in Walmart that proves my theory, is if you are standing in an aisle looking for a product you want and someone comes right up in front of you without so much as an kiss my butt or excuse me. I am known for my lack of patience, but I do have enough to wait for someone to move or say excuse me and quickly grab what I need and move on, not get in their space and take up five minutes for what I need.

This increasingly growing epidemic goes back to children. As parents we are raising kids to be adults. A child’s personality is developed by the time they are three years old. That’s when we are to be molding them into the kind of people that others don’t dread seeing come around. It’s not all about them, but so many parents now a days are afraid to make their kid mad at them. Parenting isn’t for the lazy, it takes lots of work to RAISE kids. Mine isn’t perfect, he gets in trouble once in a while, but he is respectful at all times and people enjoy being around him.

I really could rant on and on over this topic, but what good would it do? I will just keep trying to exercise common courtesy to my fellow humans along this ride with me, and work on my patience as well. (But it does drive me nuts lol!!!). Y’all have a great blessed day and try not to be oblivious to others today!
