Life Lessons I’ve Learned in Quarantine………………….

  • My House is a mess and probably always will be and it is obviously NOT because I don’t have time- it’s a choice I made to live by the Moto “Dull women have immaculate houses and honey I’m any thing but dull”
    • shhh- I’ve learned the right time to remind the hubby of his love for my exceptionalism might not be while he’s vacuuming.. oops
  • Changing PJ’s once a day saves a ton of time on laundry- BONUS!
  • My parasites (children for those nicer than me) are ridiculously spoiled and have absolutely NO ability to see anything out of place unless specifically pointed out. (of course see #1 this could be my fault)
  • My backyard gardening game is starting to be on par with my Grandmothers (God Bless their souls)
  • My life long aversion to animal print was all explained in 6 hours watching Netflix and I would never of guessed that I would ever want to answer my phone with “Hey all you cool cats and kittens” just for fun, but here we are……
  • I admire many many people on Social Media for having much more faith in their fellow human beings than I do..
    • New World Order my ass- we can’t even agree on the one we have…… ūüôā Conspiracy theories don’t scare me -they make me laugh.¬† ¬†The only thing I believe with certainty after 51 years is….if more than 3 people know a secret it’s no longer a secret unless 2 of those are dead.¬† Just the fact that most conspiracy theories would have to consist of many many people to pull off takes them out the realm of reality for me.¬† NO way that many people could agree much less stay quite without running their mouths, but I do appreciate others ability to have that kind of faith in your fellow man.
  • I haven’t read enough comic books or watched near enough movies to actually believe in Super Villains.
    • Are there bad guys in the world- absolutely! Are there evil people in the world – absolutely! Serial Killers with zero empathy come immediately to mind.¬† But there is NO SUCH thing in the real world as a James Bond Super Villain.¬† No one lives in a hollowed out Volcano with an army of minions. Super Villains are made up creations by a FICTION writer to entertain you.¬† Again- would take toooooo many other people and see previous non faith in my fellow man

I don’t scare easily, but I watched a very scary documentary the other night called “After Truth”.¬† ¬†It is basically the premise of the ease of developing 100% fake information and how quickly it can be populated through social media and even scarier show up on actual news channels on occasion .¬† The scary part was the average Americans on BOTH sides of the divide giggling and admitting how easy it is to manipulate us- the more sensationally crazy with or without a kernel of truth the better .¬† This was Americans and doesn’t even include the foreign governments that we proven are in the game to divide us and cause mistrust.

It got me thinking (yes I know kinda scary) If it’s this easy to manipulate us and there doesn’t have to even be a kernel of truth then I’ve gotten off my game.¬† I’m gonna start a new blog that looks like an actual valid news site, but with important headlines sent to my hubby and parasites such as…..

“Statistics show Husbands and Children which don’t pick up their laundry and put it in the hamper will develop hearing loss”

“Dishes left in the sick cause pimples”

“Research proves dirty socks put in hamper as balls will shrink testicles”¬†

“Husbands with more than 3 items on their honey do lists will be nagged” – oh never mind that one has some truth ūüôā

So watch out for MMN the CRAZY new news outlet coming soon to a Social Media Site near you- please feel free to share.¬† If we’re gonna be this easily manipulated shouldn’t it at least be the same way it’s been for thousands of years – Manipulative Mom’s News……………………………

I’m Above the Weather

Posted on Updated on

So I missed a day writing yesterday because I was under the weather. ¬†Not that I have ever understood the term under the weather. Why can’t we just say sick? ¬†Under the weather sounds like I was playing in the rain. ¬†What in the world does weather have to do with my throat hurting and running a fever. ¬†Speaking of strange terms- exactly where is my fever running? ¬†Did it sign up for a marathon and not tell me? ¬†If it did- I’m not going without a scary clown with a knife chasing me

Oh sorry- I wandered off- back to point! ¬†So I was sick yesterday (not under the weather- what ever that means) and took a day off of writing. Actually I took the day off of everything. It’s hard to accomplish much while your fever is running a marathon. ¬†Oops- wandering again.¬†

It’s amazing the things you actually notice when you are not capable of human interaction and are stuck with daytime TV and the internet. I actually can just lay in my bed now with a smartphone and know everything that is going on in the world with a swipe of my finger. ¬†Here’s a few things I learned¬†while I was under the weather:

1) Someone is notoriously complaining abut the weather. ¬†Now granted – it is Spring in the South which is a little schizophrenic. ¬†In the last thirty six hours we have successfully gone from 70 degree’s to 20. I actually saw snow/sun today. ¬†I’ve always heard of the “Devil Beating his Wife’ when it’s raining and the sun is shining so I guess we’ll just call that the Devil Beating Jack Frost. ¬†Hey- don’t freak out- I left out the word off.

2)¬†There are A Lot of religious people. ¬†I am a believer that everyone should be religious and rejoice in their beliefs. ¬†We live in a land of religious freedom and you should always be able to worship freely and share those beliefs. But come on now- who are some of you fooling? If there were as many religious people as I see on Facebook, TV, and the internet there wouldn’t be an empty pew in the nation. FYI – I’m not talking to anyone in particular, but if you got offended – it wasn’t really at me.

3) People on both sides take their politics waaaaay too seriously. ¬†There is nothing like seeing the posts on occasions where people have been unfriended or have unfriended someone because of a difference in political views on Facebook. Now granted I do believe we all take things too seriously and no one seems to know the art of debating anymore without turning into a two year old and insulting each other. Most debates now sound more like “You’re a poo poo head!!” “No- You’re a poo poo head!” ¬†Those debates always go well and usually end up with a “MOM” being yelled which is hard when the participants are in their 40’s. ¬†What tickles me about these debates is they are not hard to avoid in the first place. ¬†If you watch closely you should always know their political beliefs based on their posts anyway. ¬†If they post them daily exactly what is going¬†through your mind that makes you think your arguments are gonna change them anyway? Trust me- you’re not that good!! ¬†Why do they have to believe what you do anyway? Let them rant- if it bugs you that much when they post pictures of their kids- quietly make fun of them and be glad yours are better looking.¬†

4) There seems to be very few independent thoughts anymore. ¬†I remember when Facebook started most posts were of the people on Facebook’s life. ¬†You could keep up with friends who you no longer saw. ¬†You heard what was going on in their lives, saw their families, and saw how well or badly they’ve aged. ¬†Oh come on now, admit it- there are a least a few you’ve looked at and said “Phew- at least I aged better than that” ¬†Now if you have a Facebook go back to your page when you are done and look I bet approximately 3/4 of everything on the page is a share of something else. ¬†You don’t really need to talk to anyone anymore just look at the things they’ve shared. ¬†They will tell you everything you need to know about their religion, their politics, their social awareness, what their family does, and their sense of humor. ¬†I’m guilty too because some things are just too funny to me not to share, but we miss hearing about your lives. I like seeing your kids and families (even the ugly ones) ¬†I think reality is always comic and I miss the reality so if you would post us something¬†from just you soon. Unless you wanna share this and then by all means go right ahead ūüôā

5) There are a lot of people cooking very good food and none are sharing with me. As I laid in my bed I saw and heard about lunches and dinners. As I lay there eating tomato soup and banana Popsicle’s (Yes I know I’m weird, but that’s another story) I saw all this wonderful food. I saw¬†sushi, hamburgers wrapped in bacon, waffles, cookie cakes, muffins, salads, and casseroles. I heard about pot roast, chicken alfredo, and steak and potatoes. All of this made me hungry so I turned on the TV – lo and behold- more food! When did 1/2 the shows on TV start to be cooking shows? I’m shocked we are a society moving toward obese- all we do is talk about food. ¬†It’s not that hard to cook like a professional if you just watch cooking shows all day. ¬†I’ve always said I could be too, but until I get a sous chef they are getting hamburger helper. ¬†All that chopping is exhausting. You would think at least one of the parasites would of stepped up by now, but no such luck. ¬†I can’t tell some days of they are lazy are just like my crappy food. Either way- they aren’t starving nor or they obese so I’m going with cooking crappy food is good for them. If you’re not going to share your food with me-¬†It’s my justification and I’m sticking to it!

I’m finally starting to feel better¬†again so maybe tomorrow I’ll get back out in the real world and see what I can¬†learn amusing while I’m above the weather.
