Monday's junk...

OK, so here are my thoughts this past week...


Am I the only one who is disturbed about the new Brad Pitt movie? The whole aging backwards thing? They did the same thing on the Mork and Mindy show, but that was comedy and this seems like it isn't. I mean if you think this thing through... At least from what I gather from the trailer that is out, this baby that looks like a Grandpa (disgusting) gets dropped off for someone, and they start raising it. And somewhere along the line, the baby starts getting younger. Then he falls in love when he looks like a normal adult, but keep going... What happens when he ages and starts to look like a kid? Gives new meaning to cougar woman... I think I'll skip it.


What in the heck are you guys getting your kids for Christmas? No matter how many times my kids ask, we are not getting a pet. If I thought that I could handle it, I would have another baby... Just kidding. We had fish once and boy, it about took all my patience to deal with those. They can't talk to you and tell you what they need, and I was always paranoid with how much I was feeding them. Goldfish will eat whether they are hungry or not, so they tell you not to overfeed them, and then one of the fish ate another fish and Melissa couldn't handle the whole fish diying thing. So, pets are out but they still ask for them.

More driving woes: I can't stand slow drivers who make you hit ALL THE RED LIGHTS because they are going WAY UNDER the speed limit. Usually lights are timed so that you hit a group green, but when someone is going SO SLOW, ARGH!!!!! It is especially maddening when they hit the yellow and continue through, leaving you to wait at the red light.

Spencer's teacher keeps sending him home from school. He tells her he doesn't feel good, and she goes have him call home. Spencer tells me his stomach hurts when he needs to go to the bathroom... Which is like everyday, he is NOT SICK! I know, I gotta do something about it, but there's more to it than just that and I am not sure I want to go into the full story.

Why do they make kids clothes so fat and women's clothes so skinny? My kids all walk around with saggy pants because the size they need for their height (except Melissa- cause she' short) don't fit around the waist. I mean not to get TMI on you or anything, but I finally went out and bought Jenna some bigger undies because she was always sitting there with bum crack showing. They are exactly snug around her legs, but it keeps her from being teased about being a plumber. And she can't stand belts. And we have to cinch up the adjustable wastebands so much, that they are uncomfy (and we are all about comfort).

I know there was one other thing that I was going to mention, but I can't think of it, and my list is MIA, so that's all I'm sayin'.

Melissa has MANY pictures that I like, but I have to say that this picture has always put a smile on my face!

I definately agree with the pants situation! Aitana always has crack showing!! I have the waist issue too though because I have bigger hips and bum than waist so my pants are always a little bigger in the waist...what to do?

Is that fish dead or alive becsause Melissa looks like she has tears in her eyes, but would you take a pic of a dead fish? Sorry for the dumb question.

Kids clothes sizes drive me crazy! My kids are the same way. I think I'm going to have get Matthew "slim" sizes from Sears, because his pants are always falling down, but the size smaller is too short. Ethan, on the other hand, my stocky kid, can fit into the same size pants as Matthew. They fit him around, but then they're too long, so I just roll them up.
And women's clothes?!!!!! Why can't they just all get together and decide on sizes? I hate that you have to try on three or four sizes of everything until you find the right one.

I love that you give me stuff to think about that I've never thought of before. Like the clothes! That is SOOOO true! I love the new adjustable waist on some of the kids pants.
I've never seen the trailer for that movie, but now I'm curious.
What is it called? I'll have to search for it on youtube.
