My Mother's Daughter

(It seems I posted this to my "TO DO" blog instead of this one...)

I had to go shopping the other night and decided to go to Wally world even though I despise the place. I left home around 7:00 and spent the next 2 and ½ hours looking around. That’s 2 ½ hours folks!!! What did I come home with? Some deodorant, some material for the quilt, a shoe rack and ….that’s it!!! I didn’t even think about it until I went to lunch this afternoon with my dh and my youngest son who, by the way, just turned 14! We were at B-52’s eating some wings and the conversation went something like this:

Dh: So, what time did you get home last night?
Me: Umm..around 9:30 – you were sleeping.
Dh: Yep, I got tired of waiting.
Me (looking at his face and knowing something is up): What, is there a problem?
Dh: no, no, what did you buy?
Me (becoming more paranoid): Some material, deodorant, and a shoe rack. Why?
Dh (starting to laugh): Oh, nothing. (snort…laugh…snort) And what time did you leave?
Me (becoming irrated): you know what time I left – it was 7:00!

At this point L is starting to laugh and I have absolutely no clue what is so funny.

DH (who is grinning from ear to ear): And you got home at 9:30 and all you bought was some deodorant, fabric, and a shoe rack….
Me (staring at him like a deer in headlights): so?
Dh: And you spent over 2 hours….(L is laughing so hard he is about to fall over)….and all you bought…
Me: OMG!!!! OMG!!!! I’m my mother’s daughter!!!! OMG!!!!

It would drive me crazy when I went shopping with my mom. Even if we went for something simple like milk it would take HOURS because she had to look at everything……

School Buses

Let’s talk about school buses, shall we? School buses are an evil necessity in most communities to transport children to and from school and school events. Most of them are driven by people who care about the kids and their safety. There are some that drive them because it is a paycheck but I’ll give most of them the benefit of a doubt and say most do care. So, why do I want to talk about school buses?? Let me tell you!

Here’s the scene. I’m driving to work this morning. I usually try to get in at 7:00 but this week it’s been more like 7:30. Traffic at this time of the morning is starting to get heavy but not too bad. I drive on country roads and it takes around 45 minutes to get to work. So, here I am cruising along, listening to NPR (news radio), when I go around a bend and have to slow waaaay down. Why? You all know why. There is a line of cars behind this school bus that is putt putting at a measley 35 mph. I am probably the 20th car so there is no chance to pass. The freaking 20th car!!! The part of the drive to work that I am on does not have houses so why won’t this dumb a$$ bus driver pull over and let all these cars by? I just don’t understand it. Growing up in central NY I remember having to pull over all the time to let just 2 cars by. This is something that they STILL do. Why can’t our bus drivers do this? Wouldn’t it be safer to allow these cars to pass unobstructed in their driving lane than to make them pass in the other lane, taking chances? I just don’t understand the mentality of this state that I live in!

Do your school bus drivers pull over to let you pass?
