So Many Proud Non~Normals

~

I saw this yesterday and immediately thought of the folks in the Non~Normal & Proud of it Club.

~

If I didn’t know any better one of us created it!

~

LOL

~

When I started this club, it was to celebrate each of our uniqueness. What is interesting is, I never realized how many people embraced this side of themselves.

I love how many of you encourage your kids to love how “strange” & “different” they can be. I really do think this is awesome. Our children need to realize that the reality is, there is no real normal. That it is ok to be different from your friends.

Lets face it…

Life would be so much better if everyone had learned this lesson early in life.

`

Ok, you weird, deranged, freaky and psychotic folks…..I hope you liked the picture….

Who Wants a Nap?

Yesterday I mentioned how it was in the 100s here. Yep… HOT

The problem with the heat is it zaps you of all energy. As long as you are inside all is good. But 2 minutes outside and you are ready for a nap.

I wish I could nap. It is one pleasure that I really never get. But if I could, I would walk outside first  because I’m telling you. That heat will drain you faster than a Blond Bombshell with a Rich Man’s Wallet.

So I thought I’d share some Nappy Nap pictures to remind us all how great it would be if we could take a nap right now…

I know I for one would LOVE one right now!

`

Like Father Like Son

Kids are great, they can sleep anywhere

Great hiding place too!

(reminds me of people when I worked at Home Depot that crawled up in the racking to sleep)

Railroad tracks??! This guy is just an idiot – LOL

This one just made me smile

This one is just a reminder not to nap drunk (you know who you are)

Now who hasn’t taken a quick 5 minute nap in the john?

This one is just wrong…Plain wrong…

(But I bet you laughed!)

`

Ok, nap time is over…let’s all get back to work!

The Heat Makes People Lazy…Beware

`

It’s no secret that it gets hot here in Arizona. It’s been 105 – 110 for over a week now.

The problem when it finally hits 100 degrees longer than a day or two, is that people’s brains become fried. Tempers get short and the “stupid” comes out.

Stupid and Tempers do not go well together either.

I could go on forever about the stupid things that happen, but I’d rather share them individually throughout the summer.

Today, I had several complaints from customers, employees and even myself today. What are the odds, we all experienced the same special type of “stupid” today?

It’s not secret the heat zaps us of our energy and ability to think. What you might not know, is this lack of energy is so strong that when we get in our vehicles, we lose the ability to turn our head when we back up. Yep, that turning of our head is so strenuous, that to even attempt might cause immediate nap time.

So we just back up, tossing caution to the wind, and letting the dice roll.

Who cares if there is a car coming…my smart car can take down your SUV

Who cares if a kid is walking behind us….stupid kid shouldn’t be in the street anyways

Who cares if the bicyclist is back there….ride on the sidewalk stupid!

Who cares if the lady with the baby stroller is passing….I’m sure she isn’t attached to the munchkin…

Who cares …I’m tired and it is too much work to turn my head to look!  Is it nap time yet??

Who cares?

Who cares?!

I care dang it!!!   

LOL

~~~

But I will tell ya, the only fun part of this stupidity is when it happens to others. Then it is freaking hilarious….

Just don’t hit the Pink Truck….

Yelling, Screaming and Being Loud are NOT Ways to Communicate!

Psst, ummm, just so you know…. I’m right here. You don’t need to yell.

If I’m standing less than 3 feet from you, why is it you feel the need to yell?

Granted, I might be slowly going deaf, but there is no need to scream to communicate. It will actually make me want to listen less.

When I was a kid, my brother and sisters were loud. And I guess with 4 siblings the main communication style will probably be LOUD for some reason. Everyone fighting to be heard. I love my siblings, just not the loudness. When I turned 18, I moved out shortly there after. To this day I tell everyone it was because everyone was so loud.  Twenty eight years later, they still don’t believe me.  LOL

Take a phone for example. Either a land line or cell will work. Last time I checked, your mouth goes where you talk and your ear where you hear. But have you noticed how some people answer their phone and go from a normal speaking voice to a yelling loud one? You’d think they were talking on tin cans for god’s sake.

I have young lady that works for me who when ever she is on the phone with her mother, she just starts yelling to be heard. I’m constantly telling her to stop screaming at her mother. To which she says…”I’m not yelling.” I think…I suppose you’re not if your goal was everyone to participate in the conversation.

But she fits the other group that yells / get loud. Why is it when family members talk to each other they feel the need to scream at each other to communicate? It’s not like they are even really mad at each other. My one nephew will scream the other one’s name for no reason at all. I’m always like..he is right there, why do you have to scream?

But there is a difference between being LOUD and screaming to be heard. Why do people insist on screaming to communicate? Do they not realize that it just makes the other person want to fight back more? That is turns on ones defenses? Trust me, if you start screaming at someone, they will want to scream back.

I think this is why I love my quiet time. I love when it is peaceful. Problem is, when people come around, it tends to get loud. Why is it when we are alone we wish others were there and when they are we want them to go away? Oh yea, cuz they are loud!  LOL.

The sad thing is, most people aren’t angry or mad. They just think that the louder they get, the more likely they will be heard. It has become acceptable to just scream at other people to make them hear us. I hate to tell you, for me it just causes me to tune you out more. Yep, I’m more likely to ignore you if you are yelling at me. Even if you don’t mean it.

~~

Maybe I’ve always had sensitive ears. LOL.

So do me a favor….I’m right here. No need to scream or yell. I promise, I’ll hear you.

 

Does this drive you nuts too?

I’m Stuffed!

I know how he feels.

 

My nephews (12 and 14) came over tonight and we decided to make some hamburgers. Ok, more like I wanted some homemade hamburgers and bribed my other half to make them.

Now we all sit here stuffed. Tummy aches. Moans and groans.

I’m surprised my one nephew is even alive after the two big creations he scarfed down. This kids eating is worth a post all on its own one day.  LOL.

Let’s just say a lot of slurping, lot of runny gooey junk all over his hands, mouth and any thing else he might come in contact with. Definitely not pretty.

I’ll spare you the graphic details. I can’t burn your eyes…..

But we are stuffed.

Ok, he’s not this bad ~ LOL

Sad part is….I also bought some red velvet cupcakes. I’m pretty sure when the moaning stops, Mr “I Wear My Food” will be asking for cupcakes. The rest of us will moan some more….

Did I mention the kid is 14 and almost 6ft tall?

Good thing we already took showers. He is all clean to wear more food.   LOL

Ok, I have to go moan some more……

What did the teddy bear say when offered dessert?

No thanks. I’m stuffed! 

 

God I love that joke!
