Anyway, I am all for making new friends and meeting people but these ladies seemed to have something against us from the start. The first lady came in and didn't have her bag down before she started complimenting me, I mean insulting me....I don't know, still trying to figure her out. Her first words out of her mouth were, "Wow, you're pages are (long pause here) really (another long pause) fancy." Her tone wasn't good at all and I thought, well, nice to meet you too. lol
As she man handled my LO's she said,"Is that your son?" in kinda a snotty tone. Oh, no you didn't! I get REALLY protective of my family but I took a deep breath and said, yes, that is my step-son, Alex. She responded with a LONG Oooohhhh and then proceeded to tell me that someone as young as me couldn't possibly have a teenager. At this point I'm thinking I want to comment on how old she looks but that wouldn't be very nice...my momma taught me better so I explained that my husband Ted is 10 years older than me and Alex was 10 when we got married. At this point my sister knew I was upset and jumped in with a few comments to get her off my back but I thought wow, you are really rude. To make a long story short, the other two ladies weren't much better and kept saying that my pages were too involved and they went for the more simple approach. Sigh. I don't care! I didn't ask for your opinion.
That night turned into a long evening but later, the same lady that gave me grief for having a teenager says her husband is 8 years older than her and she waited to have kids and has a 4 and 5 year old. HUH? So, it's okay that you are (okay, I'll be nice here) A LOT older to have kids that young but I can't possibly have a teenage son??? What??
I am getting mad just typing this so I will wrap it up but my point is, WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? I am always amazed at what comes out of people's mouth. As I said before, my mom raised us to have respect and kindness for others and if you have nothing good to say, then shut up! Okay, I'm off my soap box.
To reward you for reading my venting, I am going to give away a mystery prize. Leave a comment with your guess on one of the girly movies that my sister and I watched. The ONLY clue is that it is a CLASSIC! I will reveal the winner on Thursday.
Off to watch the Bachelor but before I go, a pic of ONE of the mini projects from my trip. I made the cover to a clear checkbook with some of my favorite pics of us...
I used pink b/c I NEVER get to use pink and it is my checkbook. Do you think it is to involved? hee hee. Be back on Thursday. Thanks for reading and letting me vent. I feel better already.
