Living in a cave, as I do, when I read an above post from someone wishing us all a happy VD, my first thought was, "I wonder why they would want us all to have a venereal disease?"

Oh, right...Valentine's Day!

Yvonne,
A question about Misty. So Ava is about 2-1/2 yrs. and she is, and has always been, a mindless whiner. My question is, is Misty I whiner?

Good morning all Happy Valentines day. I thought I'd pop in and see how my like minded pals were. I've had a super stressful morning so my heart has been cranky and I'm nauseated from trying to manage the stressors and my hearts reaction. More issues with a different etcher at my sons school. My ex's new live in is apparently force feeding my 13 yr old son (he will be 13 tomorrow) so that was upsetting.... And my 2 big kids loaded up on sugar at their dads and were acting like little crazy people this morning when he dropped them off. I kind of chewed his butt out for it and he agreed that he watched our daughter go from normal to nutty after eating cheesecake. :0/
Um duh, so stop letting them load up on trash!
Ok, so that's all barf worthy. On to tortles and happy things!
So I have a 2 yr old. 29 months actually. And she is super smart. So smart that people are telling me I should contact Mensa and have her tested. Isn't 29 months too young to test? I mean, 2 year olds aren't exactly compliant little people LOL.

Why is she force feeding him?

Because he didn't want to eat anymore. Apparently after school snacks aren't optional with this new live in girlfriend of my ex's. I have news for her, they are MY kids and she will treat them with human decency and respect or there will be problems. I will stop dropping them off after school and instead I'll make their dad come get them when he gets off work to avoid force fed snacks or alone time with her. I haven't even met her! My ex is an idiot though so he probably doesn't think it's that big of a deal. They are old enough to regulate their food intake without an adult forcing food into their mouths. Unfortunately they are picky kids. Especially my son, so I always insist they take a single bite of everything I prepare. But I don't make force food. They won't starve themselves for crying out loud. My son had a weight increase from spending too much time with his dad and I finally have his weight normal again by eating paleo when he is at home and school. I can't control what he eats at his dads though unfortunately. So the kids eat a lot of crap over there. And that's one thing...but force feeding a huge 13 yr old boy is ridiculous.

Here's a fun one for you, my high school guidance counselor had, at one time, rolled for the Thunderbirds.

That's pretty cool [GRINNING FACE WITH SMILING EYES] I love vintage roller derby. It has changed so much


You are right Jacqui. I miss my friend. We worked together as flight attendants too so we had a blast. The passengers loved us together [FACE WITH TEARS OF JOY]

Did you just offhandedly suggest in old? Funin you. But when she said you were a slacker and needed to be in class, you can bet you got there on time! She once broke a students finger. When he was walking away, he flipped her the bird over his shoulder, and she hooked it and twisted it. Snap. Oh the good ole days when a a teacher could teach respect and still keep a job. Hahaha


Hey!!! Where did everyone go?

Howdy Mike. I'm a little punch drunk right now. I work graveyard and I'm still up just planning on taking cat naps so I can spend time with Karen like a real human this evening.

It was taking forever to load and it wouldn't flip to the new page automatically. At least for me.

I FINALLY found dandelion greens at the new grocery store I checked out this morning! Whoooo! I've been looking all over creation for them.

I never thought they were sold as greens in a grocery store until I read here that someone bought some.

I am just waiting (im)patiently for all the grass in my mother in law's front yard to come back up along with all the glorious weeds. Then I can stop buying expensive grocery store greens :p

Airports are one of the best places to people watch. All sorts of people from every walk of life.

My other favorite place is Disney. Lots of different people there too. Also super fun to see all the families and your groups that are all wearing the exact same shirt :p

Does it feel weird to be buying, I mean actually paying money for weeds that most folks pay money to kill? :D

Yep sure does. The only pesticide free lawn I have access to is currently dead/dormant. But when it comes back, it will be slam full of lush weeds [SMILING FACE WITH SMILING EYES]

I did feel weird buying them, but I am still trying to find foods my torts haven't had yet to vary their diet. The sooner I can get them dandelions, the better [GRINNING FACE WITH SMILING EYES] granted, they have not met a food they did not INHALE yet [SMILING FACE WITH OPEN MOUTH] guess that's one thing I lucked out with with how backwards the pet store started them out.
