My oldest attends a public school for gifted kids. The level of obsession that the other parents demonstrate regarding the school is mind blowing. The school is currently housed in an old high school--while the school district figures out how to build a school for the growing gifted population. I am in a community on FB of parents. They are almost constantly bitching about stupid stuff like there not being enough playground space (there are two playgrounds on site, and parents come in an volunteer for recess running team as well as unicycling), and the fact that they don't feel there are 'enough' toilets in the building. Toilets!? Really!? Their children are being provided with a top-notch accelerated education in a school with a bunch of other kids who have parents who are equally invested in their children getting a great education. Parent involvement is high. The PTA funds are more than adequate. Currently, as the plans for the new school are drawn up--they're all up in arms about the fact that the new school will not have an auditorium and their perfect little rainbow-farting unicorns might have to sit on the floor of the gym for assemblies. Oh yes, and they're upset that it would be a 1st-8th grade school--all for gifted kids. They don't have to worry about their kids having to mesh with the unwashed general-education kids--but, damn, if they might see older kids when passing in the halls!

So you can ask my daughter if her store is hiring and to help you get in, but when you posted about applying for the convention center and someone asked you where to apply you told them you weren't helping anyone because you wanted this job, and this isn't your first time being a bitch. But it was okay for my daughter to help you? My daughter *can* put a word in for you, but it's not going to be a good word. Watch yourself little girl.

Your house is a wreck, your kids are filthy animals, you haven't lost any of the baby weight, you sleep until noon and eat McDonald's and Taco Bell daily. But hey your Pinterest account says you're perfect so it must be true.

Your OB/Your OB's nurse HATE that stupid book "What to expect when you're expecting". Do yourself a favor and don't tell them you're reading it. Worse? saying something like "Well the BOOK said this". Just STFU.

My DH is always telling me I should write a book, enter an essay contest, write poetry. While I appreciate that he thinks I'm that good of a writer, I couldn't do it. I was a really smart kid that cracked under pressure and burned out. I tested gifted, read early, high IQ, your basic child prodigy. But all the pressure from my parents to NEVER be less than perfect was too much. I am now a SAHM and other than reading recreationally or to my kids I loathe learning. At the end of the day I just want to watch a mindless TV show, reread a King novel, or play a game on my phone. I spent my whole life feeling like I had a gun held to my head and now that I am free of that I want no part. Could I write a book? Yeah sure I guess I could- hell anyone can do it. Do I want to? No. As frustrating as it is for my DH to feel like I am 'wasting' my intelligence, it's just as frustrating for me that he doesn't respect my request to leave it alone.

I think a big problem with society today is we aren't schooled in the art of 'keep it to yourself.' You don't need to say, text, post, blog every single thing that you think. It is ok to have an opinion or judgement and NOT express it. We have become way too accustomed to word vomit. What happened to keeping private things private? We need to have more personal relationships with actual individuals, instead of just shouting intimate details of our lives from the digital rooftop. We have somehow become too personal and not personal enough at the same time.

My friend has been pestering me to watch ds sometime because she's bored and wants our kids to play together more often. Dh wants to go out of town with a bunch of guys this weekend, leaving me with no one to watch ds while I work. One of the guys he's going away with was going to see if his sitter would take our son... But I'm not comfortable with that so i called my friend. I figured if she watched him after I got out of work I would cook us dinner, we could watch a movie or something, and the kids could play all day. She is trying to turn it into a weekend long thing. I figured she'd try to spend Saturday night at my house because any time she comes over she insists on spending the night, idk why... She's a 10 minute drive away. But now she's trying to do a girls night Friday night (I don't get since we'll still have our kids with us and that doesn't count as girls night to me) and then a family night Saturday, then maybe shopping on Sunday until dh gets home. I don't like spending that much time with anyone besides my dh and ds. I get that she's lonely but I am not. She is a sweet person, and has the best intentions but seriously... She overstays her welcome every single time she comes to my house. There's been maybe one visit where she left before I got sick of her since I met her 5 years ago.

You know what sucks. Every since I had my hysterectomy I have like permanent PMS. Since I don't have periods anymore it seems like it just never leaves. It is a wonder my kids haven't left me in the woods somewhere just to get away from me. LOL

My god daughter came out here a month ago to try to get her life together. I am so sick of her and cannot wait for her to leave. I told her she has to go back to where she is from. She is lazy, won't look for work, has ruined her credit with a repo and unpaid student loans. I found out after she moved here that she has a drug conviction. She also apparently stole her student aid money. She applied for school, got the check and then just cashed it and never went to school. She doesn't see where any of this is a problem. She is vulgar, she talks about the girls she dates like they are little more than just someone to screw. I cannot stand the person she has become. She is going back to her home next week and it is not soon enough. Never again will I let anyone stay with me. I just cannot stand it.
