Sheesh. I had told myself that I would not neglect the blog any longer, yet still, I do. For shame.
I don't have to tell you that school is just around the corner and that is why I have not had one minute to sit and type on my special little venting spot.
My days have been consumed with cleaning out closets, getting the girls to try on all of their school clothes from last year, separating the keeps and the gives, and then shopping and more shopping.
School supplies, school clothes (wish mine HAD to wear uniforms, more about that in a bit), school shoes. Back backs, lunch boxes (to use or not to use).

You know, the kind girls are wearing (IN PUBLIC no less) that show the bottom of their butt cheeks. Yes, parents allow this, not sure what parents are thinking, but, they do in fact allow this. Seriously folks, it's pretty darn disturbing, watching a 13 year old-ish girl as she walks right in front of my husband, my kids and I, while her ass is literally coming out of her shorts. NOT COOL MOMS! NOT COOL! Its pretty close to public indecency and it should be a crime for parents to allow any CHILD under the age of 18 to wear such disturbing non-butt-cheek covering attire.
Just saying. My husband felt so uneasy about the
