Sunday Randomness

We’ll go with the good, the bad, and the ugly.

The Good. – We had Samantha and Trevor’s birthday parties today.  We weren’t going to combine them but we had trouble getting a weekend that worked with some of us.  We are about a month late on Samantha’s and half a month early on Trevor’s.  You can see why we just combined them.  We had it at the “family” pool.  I think a good time was had by all, especially the kids.  I invited my ex sister-in-law and her family as well as my ex mother-in-law.  Instead of just calling them those names, I will refer to them as friends, because that’s what they are.  They’ve all had their own issues with theEx and the JackAss so we have that in common.  Plus she said her kids never get together with my kids anymore because of the JackAss so we invited them so the cousins could hang out.  It was good to see them as well, they are getting so grown up.  Anyways, here’s some photos from the party.

Like I said, good time was had by all.  All the parents fought for shade while the kids swam.  Cheri was awesome with all the food and cakes.  And she did pretty good in the heat.  Her back is broken now from all the standing the last couple of days but she’s going to try to get in to the Chiropractor tomorrow.  That will help, hopefully.

The Bad. – I found out yesterday that theEx and the JackAss moved last week without telling me.  My kids even stayed at their new house one night.  I’m pretty sure she has to notify me that they moved.  I do have the right to know where my kids are.  They won’t be getting the kids back until I have an address and they are lucky I’m not a dick, because I could give the kids back next weekend, go to their old house, and call the cops and tell them nobody lives here and this is where my kids are supposed to be.  Like I said, they are lucky I’m not a dick.  Actually, they are lucky I won’t put my kids in the middle of their petty bullshit.  I just have no idea why they wouldn’t tell me, they actually didn’t tell their own family until after they moved, and that was a btw comment on Facebook.  Oh yeah, remember a few days when they wouldn’t drive Samantha here so she could go to the water park because she had no money?  That’s probably because she hired movers.

The Ugly. – Or what we like to call WTF Did They Just Say?  This is a special edition because it’s all about me.  In the trifecta.

First off, the other day I was at work and my foreman was talking about an ex employee

Foreman - “Blah, blah, blah, he was even more of a pain in the ass than you”.

Me – “Wait, what?  Pain in the ass?  Why?  Because I show up everyday and do my job with less mistakes than anyone else, that’s a pain in the ass to you?”

Foreman – “No, your smart ass mouth is a pain in my ass".”

Me – “Well you can solve that by staying the hell off my line and quit talking to me.”

I know, employee of the week over here.  That was probably the smart ass mouth he was talking about.

Secondly, while at the party mentioned above.  I was making fun of my wife because she was giggling in her sleep last night.  Then I said, in front of my mom, that I’m waiting for her (my wife, not my mom) to have the skiing dream, then made the arm motions.  Do you get it?  Come on think about it.  Pretend your laying down at skiing, what motion does your hands make.  Yeah, that’s right.  I’m a perve.  Even in front of my mom.

Thirdly, while Facebooking this evening, I came across a photo that was taken at the party mentioned above of my cousin’s son, with his girlfriend.  And I commented on it.

(1) Family

Yeah, that’s right.  I went there.  At least they aren’t skinny jeans.  But it is almost 90° and humid and he dressed liked that.  He deserved to be made fun of.  His girlfriend commented back that it was about time someone supported us.  See, all in good fun.


  1. Looks like a fun pool party. Perfect on a hot, sunny day! As for the ex and her idiot they sound like a huge pain in the ass. So nice to hear that you are witholding your reactions so as not to involve the kids in that drama. Good choice! As for the foreman - what can I say? Sounds like a jerk to me. And the comment about the teenager in jeans on a hot summer day - loved it! lol!

    1. *It was a good day in the shade, too many kids in the pool.
      *Since I bite my tongue with JackAss, I share on my blog, it's therapy. lol.
      *The foreman's only a jerk when he's having a bad day. Unfortunately, that's most days.
