Interesting Words From Andy Rooney!


 Remember Andy Rooney from the CBS Sunday Evening Show called 60 Minutes? Well here is an interesting set of views from him – ( LOL )

 

Andy Rooney’s thoughts on women over forty:As I grow in age, I value women who are over forty most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over forty will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, “What are you thinking?…” She doesn’t care what you think.

If a woman over forty doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it’s usually something more interesting.

A woman over forty knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of forty give a hoot what you might think about her or what she’s doing.

Women over forty are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated.

A woman over forty has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn’t trust the guy with other women. Women over forty couldn’t care less if you’re attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won’t betray her.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over forty. They always know.

A woman over forty looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over forty is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one! You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over forty for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of forty-plus, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some twenty-two-year-old waitress.

Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free,” here’s an update for you. Now 80 percent of women are against marriage, why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig, just to get a little sausage.

Interesting Day!

We had such a good day today!!!! He was able to spend time with his other parent after his soccer game and just relax and have fun….. My other son had me laughing in stitches and trying to figure out when I would meet his girlfriend …. these college kids!

image

My son was trying seriously to convince me why he needed more xbox 360 Kinect Games! LOL

image

image

He smiled for the camera…hoping and praying that his face would melt my heart…….nope!!!! not so!

image

image

He began to start his speech like he was running for political office on the importance of this Soccer Game! LOL

image

He wanted to show me the comparison in prices with different games to show me that I would be getting a deal if I purchased them for him all today!!! This boy is indeed my son because he knows how to debate and present a case very well!!!

image

AFTER….my son twisted my arm to get him a few more games…..he left very happy and couldn’t wait to get in the car to head home…..

image

When you sit back & see some things from AFAR….God will show,expose and uncover some things you missed when you were UP CLOSE!! I am so glad that I am able to REALLY see clearly now… My son and I have endured and overcame a great deal of things and we are walking testimonies!

image

He was tired of taking pictures, so he acted as if he fell asleep! Overall this child had an amazing day and it is still early!

My Baby’s Tastebuds….


I have to admit that some days his after school snacks are a break between healthy and unhealthy…… I hate to say unhealthy because he does have a variety of all of the food groups….. We are ALWAYS RIPPING AND RUNNING with his activities and cooking at home is ummmm….. like a 2 day a weekk thing! This boy has something to do EVERYDAY of the week literally…..

I do know that we are cutting out the bread…. well at least he can have bread twice a week but that is it…. He eats tons of fruit…. tons of Gatorade… tons of SPECIAL K Products and even a great deal of protein bars….. However, Wish I had the money to just build a chain of gyms for kids….I know that I would make a killing because at least 85 percent of kids in AMERICA is overweight – INCLUDING MINE!

Crazy thing is that he is in shape like he weighed like a skinny kid….

From martial arts…. he is alright… From soccer..he is alright… From baseball…he is alright… From basketball…he is alright..

I should have went ahead and signed him up for swimming – I know that would have SERIOUSLY helped us both shed some pounds….

Just even THINKING about putting this boy in another activity gives me a panic attack! LOL – It is just plumb exhausting and in a minute… His part time nanny will become his mother because I am tired!

It isnt too late but who wants to pay $300.00 for yet ANOTHER ACTIVITY! I already have to buy another instrument for this kid….. I tell him that he costs too much and needs to get a job… His reply is mom I did ask you to work but you said that I am too youn! UGGHH….. ” HUSH IT BOY ”

Another Soccer Story!


Another Saturday of freezing in the rain while the wind blows and we as parents look at one another and ask ourselves why have we NOT pulled our kids off the field!

The kids seem to NOT be freezing at all but they are only focused on getting their warm – ups in before the game starts. Really kids? >> LOL 

I love the fact that we as parents want to keep our kids involved and the coaches want to instill values like TEAM – WORK but it is like 40 degrees WITH RAIN AND WIND.

Nonetheless……. the kids played the whole game – I prayed that he wouldn’t become sick…. and as soon as the referee called the last 5 minutes of the game- it was time to go! No time for pizza, snack, drinks or candy! Let’s just go!

      Image Detail

Then I was saying to myself – why am I praying for my son NOT to get sick when I was able to PREVENT it along with the other 10 parents sitting here in the cold complaining! Sometimes it is not about praying – it is just using WISDOM and Saturday ummmm…..

I went back and forth with it! GEESH – where was my brain – wisdom and discernment through this crazy soccer game?

Oh by the way – the kids won if that made a difference!

39 Degrees and Counting!


Yes it is indeed freezing people…. Welp…it was the first day of Soccer yesterday evening and it was snowing…the wind was blowing and the temperature was VERY brisk!!!

Try the low 30′s!!!

He wants to be better than David Beckham!

Everytime I get a complaining moment..I remind myself that I rather be ripping and running via his activities rather him not having the desire to do anything…
image

However…being out of the house 6 days a week is HONESTLY a tad bit toooooo much!!!

Regardless via being a Single Parent or not but with only me doing everything, it does take me into overload as he has gotten older.

Kids running around with coats and hats on was a cute…funny and weird visual….

They play and practice in the rain and snow unless it starts thundering or lightening….things continue!

Welp it did neither but it just had snow flurries with COLD wind and the ONLY people who complained about the weather was us parents!!!

Yup!….the kids were great! LOL

Honey….. I see that the weather is acting a tad bit bonkers right through here but with baseball and soccer and ME …I dont know how well that will work being outside in this cold!

More Soccer


Why is he acting as if  he is sooo tired……… This day has been soo long for me not him! It seems like all I do is pick up and drop off now days!

Hey, I dont know how in the world that I find the time to do ANY of the things that I do….  but to see Jared’s buddy and their coaching assistant every weekend makes it all worth it….. Good clean fun! 

Seeing kids having fun brings all parents joy – they do not realize how blessed they are to enjoy life while they are young! No responsibilities etc!

Another soccer mom who shares so many similar stories as raising her son alone! Just when you think that only certain cultures go through things..lo and behold – God will surely shock you!  She is the first generation out of 10 to ever divorce her husband and raise her family on her own! I said wow!

 Usually the Indian, Italian, Islam and other cultures that are not American are groomed to STAY in whatever type of marriage they have.

Just glad that I am able to put my son in various activities! Single Moms rock!
