It's been 2 whole days since I blogged! What's up with that??

Yesterday we had to go get Emma new glasses...well, new frames. She was sitting here Tuesday night with us watching Idol and the arm broke right in half. So, yesterday we went to Lenscrafter, AGAIN, and picked out some titanium frames for her. They were really great about the whole thing and gave them to us for no charge. I figured, that's the least they could do since the glasses were only 4 months old and had been replaced once already.

I've been doing some "soul-searching" lately. I don't know why really...I think in light of recent events with one of my friends, the fact that I'm feeling better about myself in general, and the fact that I'm focusing more on the important things in my life, I've come to a few conclusions. I am so over trying to please people who don't care. I am not going to put forth a ton of effort towards something that no one is going to care about. I'm going to focus on me and I honestly don't care what other people think. For way too long I've been in these co-dependant relationships. I have to feed someone's ego and I need them to feed mine. Seriously? Who is that helping? Unless someone is truly concerned about what's going on with me and I feel the same about them, I'm not going to put a ton of effort into the "relationship." Now, there are going to be people that I can't just cut out, like my friend who is in desperate need of some help, but for the most part, I'm done entertaining someone else's ego. Sometimes I feel like I give and give and give and no one really appreciates it, and I'm done. Things are hard all over, for everyone, and if you want to have a pity party for yourself, I'm not going to be the girl you run to anymore. I'm going to tell you straight up how it is. If you got dealt a shitty hand, I'll tell you that, and I most definitely will feel sorry for you but I'm done buttering it up. If you're overreacting, I'm going to tell you. If you're making a mountain out of a mole hill, I'm going to tell you. I'm just so over the drama some people put out there. There are people with legitimate problems and then there are people who just need to whine. I have two kids...I don't need more whining in my life. I'm also done with being the one who grovels. I am just done trying to please everyone all of the time. End of rant. LOL

Today is grocery shopping day for us. Have I mentioned that I absolutely loathe grocery shopping anymore? It just sucks to take both girls...well, it sucks to have to take Madelyn. LOL She's learned that she can turn around in the cart and grab at everything in the back...and that gets a wee bit annoying! Today I also have to look for pants for Emma. All of her jeans and sweatpants type clothes look like capri pants anymore. Poor kid!

I STILL have to go shopping for their Easter basket stuff. They're always with me and I can't pull anything past Emma. I think I'm going to try to get my mom to come with me to Target on Saturday and do it then.

I'm soooo happy. Darik goes Sunday for his first "sample" after his vasectomy. I must say, I will be SOOOO glad when that comes back ok. There are some um, not so pleasant aspects going on right now.

Well, I need to get some breakfast and a shower and then we're off to get groceries. Until next time...

A. Good for you!
B. I hope everything's ok with the snip snip!
C. For the record, I do love to whine. But I promise I don't expect you to *do* anything. I am just venting for the sake of getting it out, and sometimes for the amusement of others. I hope that I don't EVER make you feel like you owe me anything!
D. I love ya! :D

I think your new attitude is very healthy and will be better for you in the long run. As I grew older I cared less about what people think, and it's very freeing.
