Happy Memorial Day

Don't forget why we have the day off...Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have passed in war.

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day to remember those who have died in our nation's service. Decoration Day was officially proclaimed on May 5, 1868 by General John Logan and was first observed officially on May 30, 1868. In 1882, the name was changed to Memorial Day, and soldiers who had died in other wars were also honored. In 1971, Memorial Day was declared a national holiday to be held on the last Monday in May.

stuff

I don't know why I like it, but I love watching the show Jon & Kate + 8. There are screaming kids the entire time (mostly) and I usually cannot stand anything that involves screaming kids, but I just love the show. It makes me laugh. Those kids are funny and the parents are amusing to watch. Check it out if you have never watched it.

Speaking of kids, yesterday I was talking to a guy I work with and he was telling me that he had a ton of errands to run after work and his kid would have to go with him. Except he'd have to take the kid home before one of the errands because the kid would not want to go to the grocery store.

What?!

Take the kid home because he would not want to go to the grocery store? That is crazy. I was like....."Uh, maybe your kid just needs to deal and go with you so you're are not running all over creation all night". I am just amazed that people will cater to children like this. And I hear about this stuff all the time and it just seems ridiculous to me that children have this much control. They are children! And these kids are going to grow up to be adults that are hard to deal with. They will not want to go out of their way for other people and they will expect people to do what they want and get really annoyed if they don't get their way. Imagine being their husband or wife. Yeesh.

Anyway, just my .02 cents on kids.

Last thing.....and oddly enough.....it is kind of kid related.

Abby.

*sighs*

Little girl is always into something she should not be into. Just like a kid. We came home the other day and I went in our bathroom and I noticed a broken cup in the sink and the medicine cabinet was open. The contents of the cup was scattered all over the vanity. She had got it open and was poking around looking at everything in there....including all the medication I take. I have a few loose pills in there because the pill bottle is hard to open. So I'm sure she sniffed those and I seriously hope she didn't eat one. If she did, I'm sure she'd should have not been feeling good. So amazingly, I don't think she took a taste test of them like she does everything else.

Then this morning I found her stuck inside my soft-sided laptop carrying case. The laptop slides into about a 2 inch opening. She managed to get her head and her front legs wedged in....then got stuck. I pulled it off her head and asked her what the heck she was doing! If she could speak, she would have said what all kids say when they are doing something they shouldn't be doing....."nothing....".
