Feeling Safe In Your Home!

But seriously, I need to vent! So in my home there is, my children, my pets and my kids dad live here as well.  Now I have NEVER been the type of lady to swoon and say protect me. I do not think it's in my DNA.  However, as a mom with children there are some things that a mother would expect from the father of her children.  Two nights ago I woke up to a crash coming from the dining room.  I look at my clock and it was just after eleven so here I am thinking my kids dad who sleeps in the living room would be up searching whatever made the noise. Nope, I peek out the door and he is snoring. I grabbed my sewing scissors for protection and leave my room and the first thing I do is check on my younger two and they are fast asleep. I head towards my oldest daughters room and find she was not home yet and then I find the reason for the bang that woke me.  

See I have a rescue Cat named Rambo. Rambo will find his travel carrier no matter where it is and loves to sleep in it so I had it sitting on a storage dresser in the dining room. Because he has been in it lately a lot.  His basket of toys, empty food dish and his travel carrier were in a pile on the ground. Basically, my cat had thrown a temper tantrum because he is on a diet and dumped everything off the top of the dresser.  Yeah, he does that. Am I mad? Of course not!

What upset me was I put the kitchen light on to pick up the mess and that's when the kids' dad wakes up.  Mind you he wakes up complaining because the light is on. I asked did you not hear the loud crash? He responded 'NO!' I got upset and asked what would have happened if someone was breaking into the house? He shrugged, said so what turned over and went back to sleep! I was seeing red at that point. That was not the reaction or the answer I would have expected from him.  My first thought was who are you? I would cut someone with my sewing scissors if you messed with my family. I honestly did not feel safe with the attitude and reaction he gave for a while that night.

So you're probably thinking Angie, what's the point of this rant!  Ladies and gents, if you live alone with your kids do not expect your partner to be a super hero and know how to defend yourself. At the end of the day you can only depend on you!

Blessings and Love,
Angie

Why I Am Okay With Being Single!

So time to speak my mind! Be ready to be offended! However, I think people take the challenge as matchmaker a little too seriously. Now do not get me wrong, I might have chosen wrong for myself, however, my setup rate for others was pretty damn good. I just did one thing that most people who want to play matchmaker never stop to consider. Is the person I am trying to set up ready for a relationship? Or more importantly, do they want to enter the dating pool again? Dating is scary. Why might I be taking a stand on this subject? Funny you should ask. I was informed a few times in the last few weeks that I should start dating. When I asked why, the answer made me laugh. Well, don't you think it's time you got back out there? Don't you want to be with someone. I saw red. I know I am not ready to date again. Is it because I am still in love with my soon to be ex-husband? Um, no. I would ask anyone who reads this that if I took that trip to stupid town to drag me back to s

PET PEEVE TIME

I will admit I have a few pet peeves.  However one that gets me is when people do not move over for emergency vehicles.  Normally if your not blaring your radio you will hear the fire trucks or ambulance before you see them.  Then once you know you need to get over and stop let the people in the other lane in. Don't be a douche.  This one car would not let me over so the car in front of him thankfully noticed slowed down so I could speed up and get over. Especially today I discovered they went to the local highschool. So rant over thank you all for the ear.
