Meet and Greet Weekend @ DBDO: 2/12/16

Published February 12, 2016 by lynn k scott

In the blogging world, a “meet and greet” is the new version of “go on outside and play with your friends”.

Take a moment to meet some new people, read some new blogs and if you’re daring enough, leave a comment or two (or three)!

My friend’s son

Published February 12, 2016 by lynn k scott

One of my daughter’s Godmothers, has two boys, ages 5 and 7.  I am always getting updates on the 5 year old and the status of her ever-greying hair.

This morning, she shares a conversation that her 5-year old initiated.

Son:  “Mom.  When my ‘totoy’ get big, it’s showing off its muscles”.

Now, I’m not going to go into the scientific definition of ‘totoy’.  Just know that it’s a male appendage, just south of the torso.

His mom, my friend, had no response other than almost dying.  I, on the other hand, busted out laughing, almost hysterically.

You have to appreciate how kids think and then choose to express themselves.  Their perspective is completely original and they aren’t shy about sharing.

Thank you to whomever created hair dye.  The moms of the world appreciate you!

Clueless

Published February 12, 2016 by lynn k scott

The last few days I have been recovering from a Celiac attack.  Nope, I didn’t even eat anything I wasn’t supposed to.  This was the first time, I’ve had a major attack that was caused by stress.  It took me a couple days, as I was finally recovering, to piece it all together.

My ex-husband is up to his same old tricks.  I, of course, legally get copies of his nonsense (long story).  I know I have come so far from the shell of the battered woman, that left New York, via Greyhound, at 5:00 a.m., almost nineteen years ago.

Yet, reading slanderous lies, defaming accusations and making himself out to have changed, slammed by stress level so hard, you’d have thought it was a Nascar vehicle hitting a wall at top speed.

Reading how that monster is accusing me of stalking him because I stated relevant facts or that he isn’t the same person he was 20 years ago, made my stomach crawl.  Beating a women in the face with a brick for $50 (less than a decade ago), having your ex-fiancee putting a restraining order out on you, stealing your kids paychecks and giving them an allowance from that; nope, not the same man he was 20 years ago…WORSE!  I correct my legal name (removing his) and he took the opportunity to add his name in parentheses every time he wrote my name (real mature there).

I’ve spent days in agony because of this attack.  I know his lies aren’t real yet they cut me to the bone as if I was being gutted like a deer by a hunter.  My life was put on hold because of an illness I can’t control.

Almost two decades later, he thinks he’s been wronged.  He lost control of me (his perception) and he has vowed to ruin me financially.  While the physical abuse may have stopped, he’s quite adept in mental abuse.  He’s truly clueless; as are most abusers who see nothing wrong with their actions.

I accept this is my cross to bear for the next year and a half.  I just wish some of the pain would diminish.  I’ve moved on; sadly, he hasn’t.

A Funny “TMI”

Published February 3, 2016 by lynn k scott

I rarely share information like this, but I shared it with a friend who encouraged me to blog about it.  It’s a “you gotta be kidding me” moment that I will bet most moms will laugh at and can completely relate to in one way or another.

It’s been a hectic morning, both at home (before I left for the office) and now at the office. It may only be Wednesday, but I swear this day is trying for a repeat performance of Monday.

I decide it’s time for a restroom break (no it’s not going to get gross).  I grab a pantyliner from my purse and bring it with me to the restroom.  If you’re a male and clueless as to what a pantyliner is, ask Google, if you don’t want to ask your wife or girlfriend.

I unwrap the pantyliner and discover that it has a beautiful pattern of purple glitter all over it.  Obviously, there’s no way I can use it; not like it was a necessity anyway.  I discard it and carry on.

I sit and ponder for a moment.  Why is there trace amounts of purple glitter in my purse? What did my daughter give me to hold that glitter-fied my purse?  How long has it been there?  Why haven’t I noticed it before?  What else (in the purse) is all sparkly now?

It’s hard enough being a woman at times.  When your child(ren) decide to “help” you, even unintentionally, it can be just that more challenging to get through the day.

So while purple is my favorite color, I think I’ll keep the glitter away from sensitive body parts.
