Another one bites the dust

Yup, you heard me. Another one down and unfortunately I won the office pool.
This makes number eight! Welcome number nine. If there is actually a number nine out there. I think at this point her reputation precedes her. Anyways if there is a number nine I will give her until the end of May.

enjoy life!

The first of many! .....and I might add, I did very well.
Bud was taken down by a big kid during his game this weekend. He was cross-checked in to the boards and became "the guy" in "kill the guy with the puck". Once all of the coaches pulled all the other kids, off mine was on the bottom of the heap. Not able to skate off by himself I watched the coaches help him to the bench where he sat. My mind I go I stay on the bench and I I stay... I stayed. So there I am, the freak mom waiting for the thumbs up sign from the coach. It took what seemed like forever, but then came a shaky thumbs up signal. I did not move from my spot in the bleachers. I let the coaches do their job. Then three shifts later (6 minutes) he is back on the ice and that behemoth kid that took out mine was benched! HA!
This league, since it is 5-7 year olds, is a no checking, no penalty league. Once a kid goes down you are not supposed to keep stabbing your stick at him to get the puck loose, especially if he is not moving from the top of it. So it was an automatic bench! HA HA
Bud ends up with a bruised thigh, and a little shaken, but not out. My lesson.... I can deal with my kids hockey injuries just fine (sort of)..... his, get up quick.

Have I told you lately....

...that I love you
You fill my heart with gladness...
take away all my sadness,
ease my troubles that's what you do.
I love my car. She is the best. In this frigid temperature she has not given me any trouble. She grunted at me twice when it was sub-zero out, but started anyways. I love her. She is a 1998 Toyota Camry, and I bought her used. I loved her from the moment I laid eyes on her. She was to be the safety net in my life for my new born child, she was the party wagon when my friends and I went out on the town. She gets me from point A to point B and C. I can't tell you how many miles are on her, she might get mad. You know the whole woman and age thing, but what I can tell you is that I love her. She will be going to the spa in the next few weeks to get a new muffler. She has never let me down. She has cost me minimal money and I love her.

The nerve

I have two of these. Shouldn't there be only one per family?
See below:
Just wondering if you need any ideas for Xxxxxx's B-day. I have a list for anyone who needs ideas. Will you all be attending the party? Talk to you soon!Xxxxxx

This is one of the rude people in my life. I actually emailed her a week ago letting her know that we will be at her sons party. She will now provide me a list of things that she wants. For Christmas she wanted me to buy books for her kids that were $9.99-$15.99 each! It was sooo rude and presumptuous. Then she had the nerve to ask me to buy her son jeans at Old Navy not the inexpensive ones the $16.99 ones then she asked for the receipt and returned them.

This is the one who bought my son get this (not an exaggeration) 17 shirts from Old Navy for Christmas they were 97 cents each and no pants. I would have been good with 3 shirts and 1 pant. Am I complaining too much? Should I be grateful that someone wants to buy for my kid? Sure, but it shouldn't come with conditions.

-20 degrees

The local department of Children and Family services which governs the rules and regulations of schools and classrooms in private and public pay institutions has sent a notice home to parents at my child's school.
It reads as follows:

Dear Parents:
It has come to the attention of the NYS Department of Child and Family Services that oversees your child's scholastic program an overwhelming concern regarding the true definition of weather permitting outdoor play. The definition is as follows. Children enrolled in xxx (name of school) are required by law to have twenty (20) minutes of outdoor play each day weather permitting. We at the NYS Department of Children and Family Services have determined that weather permitting is anything above negative 20 degrees (-20) Fahrenheit. Your child may be excused from outdoor play at anytime providing you have a note from your child's physician on record stating the reason for the excused outdoor play and the time frame in which the child is to be excused. We hope this notice clears up any confusion.......

So on a day like today where it is 1 degree with a wind chill of -20 my child is required to go outside and play for 20 minutes. WHAT THE F&^K. Schools are cancelled across 3 counties due to the extreme cold for kids who walk to school, yet it is perfectly acceptable for my child to freeze his ass outside.
This is not just his school either. It is all private and public facilities that have children. You can bet your bippy that I am going to march my ass to the "child's physician" and see what I can do about getting a note excusing him from outdoor play where the temp is below zero.

Talk about absurd!
