Wednesday Ramblings

I know, I know - I'm posting! These are things that have been on my mind lately....

I'm in awe of anyone who understands how a computer works. Lately someone said "It's the server," when I mentioned a problem. What's a server? Of course, I don't understand TVs or electricity either.

When you tell me that your child wouldn't let you do something when they were an infant, I think you weren't in control of your infant.

Cooking for Manna & More is fun but alot of work and worry. The ladies (and sometimes gentlemen) make fun. Being able to tell somebody else what I cooked is fun, too.

I saw a show with a Playboy bunny and her mom. I can't imagine teaching your daughter that that lifestyle is okay. It occurred to me that it would be easier to teach that lifestyle than a Godly one. Any time Abbie wanted to wear a bikini, it would be okay. Any belly baring (in style) shirt Abbie wanted, is okay. All the glitter and flash that she loves would be okay. Bigger and bleachier is okay.

Halloween is fun but how many costumes can one child choose?!? Yes, I've outlawed witches, vampires, Grim Reapers, and monsters at my house. Abbie would love a glittery, flashy witch costume but I tell her no. She going to be Sandy with a poodle skirt, she says. You are supposed to understand that she's not Sandy at the end of the movie.

Spencer's (I will not provide a link!) is disgusting! I was looking for a beard for Kenny and I was sooooo happy Abbie couldn't read.

I really missed sewing. I made myself a poodle skirt and it was great fun! The fabric and thread feel good again.


I'm sure there's more but that's all for now.......

Yeah, you should definitely be able to control anyone that you're bigger than. I COMPLETELY understand picking your battles, thanks to Riley, but "not letting me do something" -- nuh-uh.

Did you see the bunny who got the "grill" made for her teeth (okay, I thought grill just meant braces, NO, we are just putting metal on our teeth to look more, according to her, "gangsta" -- deliver me!) It's a lazy lifestyle to raise a child that way, but it's a heartbreaking lifestyle to lead, I would imagine. Wouldn't you rather have something besides your bod to depend on?

I think I miss sewing, too. I do NOT have time. I miss scrapbooking, as well. I miss coffee with my friends. I miss a lot of things, evidently.

Yeah, it was the same bunny. It's just ALL wrong...
