Day 2 of Summer Blog Camp

So, I missed a day, whatever....

Day 2 -What were you like in high school? What extracurricular activities, if any, did you take part in during high school? Did you consider yourself a writer?

 
So right away I see that the new blogger in draft sucks!! I can't seem to format my words; so ignore all formats.

What was I like in high school?...........hmmmm...........

I was quiet and kept to myself. But, I was not a good girl. I smoked in the bathrooms and in gym class on the track. Yes, I got caught plenty of times but that did not stop me. The principle was pretty lenient. They would confiscate my smokes, give me detention, and at the end of the day the principle would give me back my cigs. So no big deal. 
 
For other punishment, I got in-school suspension which didn't bother me because I could get all my school work done in one day and then do what I wanted after school. And if it was for several days then I could read my books all day. Also, I got suspended for 3 to 5 days several times which didn't bother me either. I hated to go to school. I loved the work and to learn but hated the people. They sucked!! 

I skipped school right in the middle of classes and wandered town. I played hooky A LOT!! But, I always made up the time and got my school work done and passed with flying colors. Except for Home Ec class. I signed up for Foods but there was no room and they stuck me in Home Ec. I failed! It was two parts. Sewing and the food part. I failed the sewing so therefore I failed the class. Yes, I asked for extra help. Yes, I stayed after school to get help. But, that didn't matter because the teacher was a BITCH from hell!! She only catered to the popular wealthy kids and IGNORED me and my pleas for help. I hated her and for a long time after that. I think she's dead now. Good, I hated seeing her in the grocery stores. I felt like decking her every time.

But, anyway, that's history. Except for smoking and missing plenty of school. I was pretty good. Except for getting pregnant at 16 and dropping out. 

So yeah, you might not want your kids reading this. But, I am not a failure guys. Although, I had kids and married young. I was a good wife and mother. I think I still am. I've been married for almost 23 years (and all my kids have the same father) and I am a grandmother. I went to a junior college and got my degree and was on the dean's list and presidents list SEVERAL times. So, there, stick that in your pipe and smoke it. Ha Ha! By the way I don't smoke anymore.

As you can see, I was NOT in any extracurricular activities. I couldn't wait for the end of the day to get out of there. And I was a reader of books not a writer. Still am. The only "writing" I do is on my blog. Which is why I started a blog because I hate writing with pen/pencil and paper. I like typing. So this blog serves as my diary. I don't care who reads it. It's not that interesting anyway. Maybe I should start with what I REALLY think. Hmmm....

Face Wash

Why have I not ever heard of this before? I have acne prone skin. Had it every since I was 9. I've tried every freaking acne face wash there is and nothing has ever worked. So, here I am in my 40s and finally my skin looks good. For three weeks now. I love it! No acne. No dryness. Smooth and healthy complexion. I really do look younger. So what is this? I don't know if I dare say. I mean why would I want others to look good too. lol. Oh, well....here it is:


castor oil and olive oil
What!! Why would you put more oil on your face to help with oily skin, you say. I thought it was gross too. But since I have tried everything anyway, I gave it a shot. And I was sold on the first "washing".

I found this on a blog that I follow: Simple Organized Living. I think I found the blog on Pinterest. You find so many neat things on that site that you might otherwise never have found. On Simple Organized Living, the oil cleansing method was linked and referenced too.

Go ahead and re…

My Little Girls Birthday!

Today is my oldest child's birthday. She is 26 years old. Not a little girl anymore. Although, she will always by a little girl to me. She has a lovely disposition and it amazes me how she turned out that way having the parents that she has. We are anything but lovely. lol. I am looking forward to watching her grow even more into the woman she will become. I love you, Patricia Marie O'Donnell, with all my heart!!

Thank You, Hubby!

As I was reading my posts in FB this morning, I ran across a link about dads and I was thankful that I have the husband that I have. The link was to a blog post, titled, Calling all Dads, from the blog, Dad Revolution. The post was about how the government census classifies dads and how society still thinks of dads as babysitters.

I am thankful that my husband has changed plenty of diapers for all four of our kids. He has made bottles, gave them baths, walked the floors with them. He cooks, does dishes, and picks the house up. He will do laundry also. He does have many faults, but, all in all, I choose to put up with them in order to experience all the goodness that I do get. Also, now that the kids are adults, they have a great relationship with their dad still.

Now we have 6 grandchildren and they all love him dearly. He gives them plenty of attention, kisses and hugs, and shares his coffee with them. Also, when I watch the kids for my daughters, I can count on him to help me take c…
