Lesson learned

So, yea I spend my life getting upset with people and situations and just loooooove to say the word 'Never', LOL!  I'm never doing this or I'm never talking to so & so......well, you'd think I would've learned my lesson by now.


NEVER SAY NEVER........LESSON LEARNED


Yep!! Never say never people, cuz you have no idea what will happen the next day, next week or next year!  I've been in situations where I refused to associate myself with someone or something after an incident & then decide to just throw my hands up and go back on my 'never'!


LOL, oh that has never been more true than what I did this weekend! After swearing up & down that I would NEVER have my kids represent WNY in anything, I gave in to a friend's request.  I figured, I've done this in the past.  I've said before I would never speak to someone & then go back to speaking to them, the relationship changed but I still spoke to them, so why should this be any different.  It's actually more important because it makes my son happy!


After last year's debacle with the Little League president, I never thought I would allow my son to play in WNY again!  But why not?  If I don't, then he wins!  And honestly, I'm sick of these games-he wins-we win-WHO CARES!! 


I certainly don't anymore!  I don't care what anyone thinks about me, my family or our parenting!  People will always be judgmental, think they know better, and won't agree with your opinions & decisions, but again-WHO CARES!!  I don't anymore! 


Think what you want, say what you want-NOBODY can do me or raise my family and keep a husband and family together like I have! My kids are wonderful, very respectful and responsible!  Many times I've had people approach me to say what a wonderful son I have-especially during baseball games.  He is one of the few kids on, any team he has ever played on, that does not talk back, does not complain about what position he is put to play on or if he's benched, does not throw his bat or throw & kick his helmet around after a strikeout-he is a great teammate & I'm not saying it just cuz he's my son.  Many people have said it and every coach that has worked with him has loved this about him.  Guess who is responsible for that? His coaches, teachers, some jo-schmo on the street....HELL NO!! That was all thanks to his parents - that's right- me & my husband.  Many have been very critical of us, especially of my husband, but you know what-my son knows what he knows & is who he his because of how we have raised him & what we have taught him.  


It's our job as parents to guide & teach our kids and I think that we have done a WONDERFUL job!!  I really don't care anymore what anybody thinks or has to say-if you are criticizing me & my family-you better look in the mirror and check yourself first!!  Chances are-you have your own issues with your life & family!


So, no more holding back to avoid people or to avoid people from commenting--time to live & live the way we want!  


I live in a crappy town, I will never deny that, but I have to make the best of it!!!


So here's to another CRAZY SEASON OF YOUTH BASEBALL..........LMAO!!!!

Crazy Spring Weather

OK, so I shouldn't be complaining about the weather being that we were very fortunate in having such a mild winter, but will mother nature make up her mind already!!  We had several gorgeous days last week, then the temps dropped!! Now, for the past 3-4 nights, we have been waking up to an ice-cold house!  The boiler in the house was acting up & now my in-laws refuse to turn it on out of fear that something will happen, so we have to sleep and wake up to a cold house.  Am I frustrated?  Absolutely!! I HATE the cold weather, this is why I was so happy that winter was not bad, but maaaannn am I paying for it now.  The first thing I do is turn on the space heater-I'm scared to leave it on all night-and then I run to the kitchen and turn on the oven and all 4 burners! I know, this isn't good to do, but I keep an eye on it, and I really need to warm the house a bit before I get the kids up.  They don't like getting up in the morning, and having a cold house makes it 100 times worse!!
I slept in a sweatshirt, t-shirt and sweatpants and my daughter slept in her knit stockings & long sleeve t-shirt...LOL, we need to keep warm!
Well, enough complaining......I'm just hoping the weather warms up a bit more.....70's are good, I'll be happy & comfortable with that!  According to the meteorologists, the temps should rise in the next few days, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
My son has his 1st baseball game this Sunday, so I really would love for the weather to be warm!

It's Finally Spring Time!!!

Its the 1st day of Spring and it looks like a beautiful day out there!  I am, unfortunately, stuck indoors working-LOL!! I know, I should be happy that atleast I have a job, but feeling as sick as I feel today and seeing the sun shining so bright, I can't help but wish I were out there to enjoy the day!

Hope everyone is having a great first day of Spring!!!!

Friday's here-what are you doing?

So it's finally Friday night! Would love to do so many things but my Friday's now have a set schedule. My hubby takes our son to baseball practice & stays with him since practice is about 45 minutes away! My daughter has her salsa & hip-hop class at the same time, so I stay with her. 2 1/2 hours of sitting in the waiting area of a ballet studio is definitely not what I'd want to do on a Friday night but I have no other choice. Actually, this is nothing. When baseball games actually start, I will only see my house on weeknights, hopefully, and to sleep. The craziness is almost here. I may complain about it but honestly, I wouldn't want it to be any other way! So, what are your Friday plans?
