Life With Boys (BLW Contributor)

1

Wrapped In Chaos

Remember in grade school when us girls used to think boys were weird, gross or had cooties? Well..after having 2 boys, I can say that they are an interesting breed. They ARE weird and sometimes gross!

There are things/traits I have come to learn and never would have known until now. Here are the top 10 things I’ve learned about boys under 5 yrs old:

1. Boys like to stick things up their nose or in their ears. Why? I have no clue. See exhibit A.


2. Boys are messy..like really messy! My house gets messier faster than I can clean it. I swear a tornado blows through my house every day.

3. Boys are whiny and cry babies..more than little girls. Seriously. My daughter was needy when she was little, but never an emotional wreck like my two boys.
4. Boys are very hands-on and like to touch EVERYTHING…

"They don’t know how good they have it," (BLW Contributor)

  I stood in line anxiously awaiting my Mini Shredded Chicken Quesadilla.  I could see the Taco Bell employee from where I stood – lost in the world of her iPhone.  I sighed and took in the situation around me.  A little girl bounced behind me, begging her mother to buy her more of the crunchy cinnamon fry things (no idea what they’re called but they were a highlight of my childhood).

It wasn’t until I heard, “they don’t know how good they have it,” that I noticed the conversation of two men to my right.  One was a veteran.  One was an emergency responder from New York City.  Here they stood, in the same Taco Bell as I, waiting on the same employee to cook their food (it’s worth noting that my total wait time was 22 minutes.  Just sayin’.)

“These kids today.  They complain when they can’t speak…

The Lab and the Basset Hound (BLW Contributor)

Splendippity

Several years ago my husband Steve and I were huddled downstairs during a snow storm the week after Christmas.  At some point that evening, we went out to the garage to get more drinks and check the snowfall.  I turned on the outside light to see how much snow had already fallen and saw two dogs, a Black Labrador and a Basset Hound, standing in the yard.

Who says life is Fair? (BLW Contributor)

chasing quotes

Unfairness quotes :

***Sometimes life seems unfair. It always  rains the hardest on the people who deserves the sun.***  -anonymous-

***If the world was just going to punish me with my choices, It shouldn’t  given me options in the first place. ***   -the secrets of flight-

***You put someone first who put you second.You study  your ass for a final only to get a C. You give 110% to someone in a relationship who only gives 40%. You are there for a best friend at 3:00 am and the next day they don’t pick up their phone. It seems like you’re giving everyone everything and they’re  just walking away with it.***

***life is indeed unfair. There are times when I’d stare at the sky at night and wonder why you are my entire universe when I’m not even a little stars in yours.***  -purehappylife.com-

Equal Opportunity in the home? (BLW Contributor)

MJ

When men and women both work outside the home to equally earn an income, should they equally share the household work and tend the children?

Growing up in the south at a time when there were definite ‘woman’ jobs and ‘man’ jobs, I saw my mother as a stay-at-home mom handle all the responsibilities of feeding the family, keeping the house which included laundry, mending and making much of our clothes, and often while working alongside Dad and us kids in the fields. When the family arrived home from working in the fields she had the meal prepared or quickly prepared it, and after we ate she cleaned the kitchen (with help from us kids) while Dad rested. I watched as she worked until bedtime and rose the next morning to cook a big breakfast for the family and spend another day working in the garden, preserving hundreds of jars…

I got published today.

Starting the year with a feature story about Haitian chicken and more.

I wrote that story a few months back. Finally got published. Getting used to it. Cover story. Feature story. Next story. Shitty blog.

Yesterday I finally started working on a story I did not query and I’m just writing for myself (and hopefully selling). It’s missing something. More accuracy. So I went to the historical archive to look up writings of Sor Abeja and… Well some kid was there and he said to try the next day.

That day is today. But the historical archive is next to Nelson bar. I stopped by for one beer and to talk to Erika the bartender about the story. A friend texted me that she will meet me there in 20 minutes. I waited for more than an hour and I didn’t have any food. One beer turned into…

Yay! A number Changed! – Happy Bday Bisho! – Word Vomit 2016 Summary

Matingas

Yay!!

A number changed from 2016 to 2017.

Celebrating a new year is like celebrating seeing 11:11 on your phone. It means dick.

Celebrate every second, every minute, every hour, every day, every week, every month. Number changes. I guess the year is the bigger of them all. And that’s why celebrating decades gets even more attention. And the millennium. People celebrated the dick out of that. ANDDDDDDDDD nothing happened. Besides number changing. To a nice round 2000 AD, anno Domini. Random numbers YAY!

Not even all humanity has the same years. Chinese celebrate different new years and crap. Others and blah blah blah.

And boohoo

Everyone hated 2016.

Well.

Let me tell you.

Trump is still going to be president. Celebrities are going to keep on dying. Love ones are going to keep on dying. Mexico and USA seem to plummet in shit politics and violence. The border is…

Weekend Inspiration – Roll the Dice by Charles Bukowski

2

roll-dice

if you’re going to try, go all the

way.

otherwise, don’t even start. 

if you’re going to try, go all the

way.

this could mean losing girlfriends,

wives, relatives, jobs and

maybe your mind. 

go all the way.

it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.

it could mean freezing on a

park bench.

it could mean jail,

it could mean derision,

mockery,

isolation.

isolation is the gift,

all the others are a test of your

endurance, of

how much you really want to

do it.

and you’ll do it

despite rejection and the worst odds

and it will be better than

anything else

you can imagine. 

if you’re going to try,

go all the way.

there is no other feeling like

that.

you will be alone with the gods

and the nights will flame with

fire.

do it, do it, do it.

do it.
