Kids are so funny sometimes!

My oldest son is quite funny sometimes, with his goofiness. The problem is, he loses it quickly, because he takes it too far. He needs to learn to play it “cool” when he does funny things… don’t make it worse.

Anyway, we were in the car and he farted. Now, we all know, that is the one thing that will get kids to laugh. There is just something about rumbling air between your butt cheeks that causes noise, that kids just can’t get enough of. Add to that, the lingering aroma that seems to crinkle every nose in the area, and you’ve got kid-comedy.

Devin is always coming up with new things to say. After his “airy” escapade, he says… “I just broke a grumpy!!”.

Cracked me up!


I have a problem with conflict.  I do.  When I’m my normal feeling self, I have a really hard time bringing up subjects that I know are uncomfortable.

For example, we have new neighbors.  We, my wife and I, just spent quite a bit of money for a wireless in-ground fence, to keep our dogs in.  We don’t want to bother the neighbors now, do we?

Well, they apparently also have a dog, and they have NO quams about leaving their dog to roam the neighborhood.  Okay, well, that’s a little irritating.  But when I get home, I don’t feel “negative anymore”.  Now, while I’m home, if I see that dog come up on our deck and pee on our furniture, then I’ll be frustrated enough to walk over there.

But, give me 15 mins to calm down, then I won’t feel like going over there, and I convince myself, “it’s not worth it”.

I really need to work on that.

Rant Apology

I wanted to send a quick apology for the post I left earlier, regarding backstabbing.

No, no one saw it, and made me feel guilty.  I felt my own remorse.  Pretty much after I posted, I felt it, but I let it go.  Well, a whole day has gone, and I still feel bad.

Are the feelings still there?  You bet.  But it’s not worth demolishing another human being.  This person does have his good points, no doubt.  Everyone does.  Even people you hate the most, has SOMETHING good about them, I’m sure.  Usually, you have such negative feelings, you don’t want to think of the good things.  That’s just human nature.

Am I lesser person by posting that rant?  I don’t think so.  I’m just like everyone else.  I do, however, feel I’ve let myself down, since I try to think of the good in people.

Anyway, I will still try and post my feelings and behaviors…. I just hope I’m more “balanced” and justified.

This morning’s post was just filled with 100% emotion.
