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.


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!!!!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
