Do you remember the story about the single father of 9 who abandoned his children? Well guess what...he's going to be a father again! And according to some news agencies, the girlfriend is expecting twins! When asked why he'll be able to handle the parenting better this time, he said it's because he won't have to do it alone. Give me a break! What a self-centered jerk!
This news is being announced just days after he gives up all of his parental rights to the abandoned children...saying that he could not handle the stress and didn't have the desire to be a parent after his wife and the mother of the children died shortly after giving birth to the youngest. He had said that he never wanted to be a parent again.
Guess he lied about that too...
Those poor children. Why can deadbeats have so many children but good, decent people are left childless?
it is also my Mother-in-Law's Birthday (She did not have the same "issues" that I have). I was blessed to have known her for just under 4 years.
To put it briefly...
She was wonderful.
It has been almost 11 years since she passed away. Eleven years that were filled with so many wonderful things, but also eleven long years that she was missed every day.
Happy Birthday Ruby. You are still loved so very much by everyone that was lucky enough to have the pleasure of knowing you, as well as all 5 of your granddaughters that remind me so very much of you in each of their own wonderful ways.
Well, today is the day that not only my parents, but also the entire world was blessed with ME. It truly is a wonderful day!
I don't like to say that today is my birthday because the word birthday has a tendency to be a naughty word when it is used against me. Birthday always means that I are getting older. I do not like getting older...especially when my family and dear friends delight in tormenting me about being old and decrepit. So, I stopped getting older...the same time that I stopped celebrating my "birthday". Now I just celebrate the day that you all were graced with my presence. I know this day is a great honor to you all.
So with that in mind, I hope that everyone of you goes out today and makes it a wonderful day! Enjoy yourself and the fact that you are blessed to have me in your life.
(P.S. I hope that everyone takes this post with the "tongue and cheek" manner that I wrote it with. My wonderful family and friends have been calling and harassing me since midnight about today. I just had to "get back" at them.)
This has been a yucky week already. My high speed cable
and cell phone
have been acting up...probably due to all the rain we have been having. Plus I just had to take my beloved Jeep
back to the shop for more repairs! I guess that I should look at the "peace & quiet" as a blessing...but I'm starting to get a little "twitchy" from the isolation!
And do you want to hear something funny. I sent a repair request via e-mail (as this is my only current form of communication and I get an automated response telling me to call them! They are so lucky that I cannot jump into my Jeep and drive down there to give them a piece of my mind!
So we got up first thing this morning to celebrate.
Kyla had a chocolate donut with coconut and a chocolate milk.
(Don't you like the lovely ensemble that she picked out? I am not allowed to pick out her clothes any longer because she is going to be a First Grader. We'll see how long I will be able to handle this...)
Mikey had a Double Chocolate Cake Donut and an Orange Juice.
(He was a little grumpy because the Mountain Dew that he really wanted was nixed.)
Bryleigh had a Chocolate Glazed Old Fashion and a Chocolate Milk. Her favorites!
Kadence had a Double Chocolate Cake Donut and a Chocolate Milk.
And Kaleigh had a Glazed Yeast Donut with Chocolate Frosting and Red, White, & Blue Sprinkles and a Chocolate Milk.
(Did you notice that Chocolate Milk was the beverage of choice for all the girls? They are all chocolate fiends like me...)
