We have friends visiting us in Florida. Their two teenage kids have their noses buried in their phones 24/7. At lunch (on the beach) today I said, 'hey, why don't we all put our phones away and take in this view?' The reply I got, from a 14-year-old, no less, was a sarcastic snicker and a 'yeah, right.' I couldn't help myself! I said if I'd ever have talked that way to my parents' friends I'd get a slap across the mouth. His reply? 'Try it and I'll call the cops.' Parents said NOTHING! Thank goodness they left ten minutes ago and they'll be someone else's problem.

In response to a confession. May of 2016 was the last time we had insurance. We did have all kids for our kids, but alabama has decided to end that program, so we're going to have to find a way to fork over what the ACA wants in premiums. Just for the kids. We wont ever be able to afford for us all. I can't believe I ever took insurance for granted. It shouldn't be like this, I agree.

We haven't had health or dental coverage since July. We will finally have insurance starting 1/1/18. It's going to cost us $450.00 a month, but just until me or dh get a job with benefits. It shouldn't be like this in a country that has so much money. Everyone should have health benefits.

So...tell me if this seems a bit weird to you or not: My good friend from high school is a lesbian and she and her wife have a daughter who is 9. They cut her hair really, really short and tend to dress her in more masculine clothes (suits and ties vs. dresses). They refer to her as 'handsome". I refuse to take an opinion on the matter because I don't know if the little girl is the one who wants the short hair/suits or if it's her moms that want them. I dunno, I think it's kind of cool that they let her not be so overly feminine if she doesn't want to be. I was never into wearing dresses or fancy shoes as a kid and my mom used to force me to wear them. I would have loved to be able to choose my own clothes and who knows, maybe I would've picked suits and ties. DH thinks it's seriously messed up and that they are trying to turn their daughter into a boy or a lesbian. I think he is wrong.

Too cute--my niece asked me if I had an Elf on the Shelf (I don't have kids). I told her I don't, because my dog is always on the "nice" list. She really is--never steals food, never pees/poops in the house, doesn't bark incessantly, stays off the furniture, doesn't get in the trash. My niece asked what my dog wanted for Christmas this year and I said she would probably like some new toys. My niece was amazed and said "Dogs like TOYS?? Toys like mine?" They don't have a dog and it cracked me up. I told her that my dog's favorite toys are her stuffed animals and my niece said she should get some stuffed animals from Santa for being a good girl this year. So today I went and bought my dog a few new stuffed animals for her Christmas present--she deserves it and I don't have to put up with any stupid elf on the shelf.

My 83-year-old dad is in good health, but has a huge house with 3+ acres. He told me he wanted to sell the house, and his neighbor's friend heard and wants to buy it. I helped him set up three different times for her to go look at the house, and Dad told me she cancelled every time. He also told me he was on a waiting list to move into an apartment building for the elderly. I'm currently out of state, but just found out that HE cancelled the house showings, and never even applied to live in that building. I dont know why the hell he thinks he has to lie to me!

Decorating Christmas cookies with my nieces makes me very glad I do not have kids of my own--I get to have fun with them and my sister gets to deal with the frosting EVERYWHERE and cleaning sprinkles up off the floor for a month.

A client of mine has a bookkeeper that recently had a baby. They hired a temp to take care of the essentials while she was on leave. The baby is less than two weeks old and she's already back to work. Here's the truly awesome thing: the baby comes WITH her to work. She's got a pack & play set up in her office. She nurses the baby right at her desk. I went over there to help her clean up a few issues from the temp (and to see the baby). She said to me, "Do I have the best boss ever or what?" And she does. It's pretty heartwarming. *heart=warmed*

I have encountered so many moms in my life that when their youngest child is a boy they do everything they can to keep the child in baby stages. When it is a boy they breastfeed longer, co-sleep longer, do everything for him and make him as dependent as possible. Yet when the youngest is a girl it isn't the same. I wonder why this is? It isn't every person with the boy as the youngest but many. There have been some women I know that have an very weird attachment to their youngest boy.
