McDonalds Experience from Hell


My kids and I went to McDonalds today. I told them we could go there for a special treat. Little did I know that I would be having a trip from hell.

We walk in the door and immediately Bella starts screaming at the top.of.her.lungs. Blood curdling screams. Why? Because a fly flew by. In case you don’t remember, she just recently got stung by a bee in her ear, so the fear is very real and the memories are very fresh still. I get her to calm down and we order our food and sit down. Now here I thought this was going to be a great trip because some how I managed to convince my kids that it is much better to sit outside of the play area than in that noisy hell hole.

Boy was I wrong. My son announces, very loudly, that he has to go to the bathroom. Before I can stop him, he darts into the mens room. There were other men in there. One of which, who looked very creepy. I couldn’t leave my little boy who talks to everyone, in there. So I open the door, announce “you better cover up what you don’t want seen” and march in, grab my sons hand and drag him in the women’s bathroom. I was humiliated.

If that wasn’t enough, a lady came out to clean the tables and my son lets her know that we were not finished. As if the food, napkins, sweet ‘n’ sour sauce, etc all over the table wasn’t enough for her to get it, but whatever. The lady responds with “I ain’t gonna wipe your table hun”. I cringe when I hear the word ain’t, but no biggie. Or so I thought. Zachary looks at her and says, without missing a beat “ain’t is not a word. You really should speak properly”. Yep. My son just corrected the 40 something year old woman cleaning tables at McDonalds. While I was proud of him for knowing and wanting to use proper English, I let him know that you do not correct adults like that. Do you think Zachary could leave it at that? Oh no. The next words out of his mouth are “well someone should”.

So ladies and gentlemen…when you think a quick little trip to McDonalds will be uneventful…think again.

Biggest Loser tonight

This is probably the funniest line I have I EVER heard!

“I went to a fat show and gained three lbs. That would be like going on a make over show and they made you ugly. You’d be pissed”.

OMG we were laughing so hard!


I swear I am going to throw out half my house. I absolutely hate how much crap we have everywhere. I am so sick and tired of moving it around from one place to another. My kids have more toys that they know what to do with and it seems like the more I throw out, donate, sell…whatever, the more we have in our house. And it sure as heck is not me that is buying all these toys.

And of course, the day that I am super sick of all of this and needing some help to get rid of it/clean it up, dh calls and says “I really need to go golfing right now”…whatever. Sure I understand the importance of golfing with your boss and whatnot, but I am sick of his work. Sick of the hours he works, sick of the lack of help I get, sick of the lack of “me” time I get. Sick sick sick of it all.

Sure I could get a babysitter for some much needed, much deserved me time, but then that would cost money and it’s not like I have a money tree in the backyard. Though sometimes I think members of my household believe we do.

So if you drive by my house this Thursday morning and see a BUNCH of garbage bags piled up at the curb, know that I threw away, or attempted to throw away, half my house.

Anyone want to come over and help me organize my house…my life…etc? Please? I’ll make you cookies 🙂

Movie Review…Women

I just went and saw Women with my mil and sil. I really liked it. There are no men whatsoever shown in the movie (they are talked about). The movie has me really thinking. It is about a woman who finds out that her husband was cheating on her.

I used to always say (before kids) that if my husband ever cheated on me, I was out the door. No way was I going to stick around with a person who does that. But now that I have two kids, I really wonder what I would do. Being a SAHM makes it more difficult for me. I mean, I have no income of my own. So what would I do if I had to raise my kids on my own? Sure I have my teaching certificate, but in Michigan that doesn’t mean a whole heck of a lot since there are no jobs. So it makes me wonder if I would really walk out the door or if I would try and make it work.

However, how in the world could a person make it work? You have nothing if you don’t have trust. I don’t see how you would be able to get that trust back once your spouse cheats on you with another person. But then again, I can’t really put myself in that person’s shoes, since I haven’t been there. But boy did my heart hurt for that woman. She was so humiliated, and rightly so.

Definitely go and see that movie. It really is a good movie and not only that, but it is a little bit empowering as well.
