I assign things genders.

Like Trucks are boys


Cars are girls.

My daughter suggested that our Suburban marry our friend's new truck.

I thought--OBVIOUSLY they can't because they are both boys.

Am I alone on this one?

Blarg Math

Anyone else dreading Parent Teacher conference? Actually I wasn't dreading the teacher, I was dreading the discussion with child post discussion with teacher.

My 9 year old is failing math. FAILING. She doesn't like it. But she can do it--she just doesn't like to. She needs to improve her math facts--and that would help everything else. She doesn't like subtraction and addition, but for some reason she likes multiplication and division. So confused about that.

She WILL NOT do flash cards. Well, she will, and by the end I want to rip her hair out. That is not great.

So I want to go electronic. In dream world--I'd buy an iPad. Because I think it would be perfect. But unless some money drops from the sky, that ain't happenin.

So I want to get an electronic hand held math device. I looked up on Amazon and I found the Math Shark and another one.

So does anyone know of one I can use? Have you tried any? Reccomendations please.

My sister gave me an old school one, and i put it up so my kids wouldn't mess with it, and now i can't remember where I put it.

Classic me.

Anyhow, help!!

A random Pet Peve

Okay, I have many a pet peeve. But there is one that somehow irks me like no other.

And that is what I see as INCORRECTLY holding hands.

What? you say? There is such a thing?

Yes. There is.

I'll show you.



Do you see? The man should lead, his hand should be on top/in front. That is correct. I've mentioned this to other people and they gave me a crazy look.

Justin Bieb needs to learn a thing or two--but then again, he's just a boy. Maybe he'll man up.

Why does this irk me? I have no idea, but it does--to no end. Luckily, when I was looking for holding hand images, it was hard to find one that was incorrect. Which backs up my point, at least I think so.

The man leads, he should be the protector, the gentleman--opening the door and such. In a crowd, he should lead the way--and make a path. He can't do that if his lady's hand is on top.

I have never held hands incorrectly--in fact if someone ever tried (and I do have a faint memory of a boyfriend trying to do that to irk me)--I would rather NOT hold hands thanks.

And it's for his own good--I don't want people to think he's a pansy.
