Once again a list is piling in my head…
There is this gym and for privacy and all I will keep their name anonymous. Lets just say it might rhyme with Janet Witness. I do not go to the gym as I would rather poke my eyeballs out. There is nothing I loathe more than physical fitness. But my honey is getting his beach bod ready with working out there along with a rigorous strict diet of lettuce. Anywho are you aware that this said gym has a pizza night?? Yes, a pizza night at their gym where they have free pizza for their customers. Not only a pizza night but bagels are offered once a month too for a breakfast option. THIS DOES NOT MAKE SENSE. This is a gym where people go to at least attempt to get fit….like they need pizza smell in their face while they are supposed to work out! Here lets add on a pound or two by giving you free pizza. Whose idea was this? ALSO, a candy dish full of the delicious purple grape frooties, and tootsie rolls. Again, just a little sugar to keep you on track. This is also a gym where there is no scale to be seen since its a judgement free zone. Good gravy. Yes, judgement free but why can’t someone track their progress at the gym? like the place they most want to track it at. All Im saying is that I did have a short career as an exerciser and let me tell you they at least had a scale for their customers. Its a gym, its not an odd place for a scale. This gym does not make sense.
The beautiful snow above is at a house we just sold. Since its on a corner the sidewalk ends get filled beyond full and I got the job of chopping the snow so we could scoop out the snow since it was already packed hard. The plough does a wonderful job but when it comes to corner houses it licks for real. Since we are responsible home owners we will clear a path and make an opening to the street but it was interesting enough for me to stop and take a picture of it so I thought i would share. Would it make more sense to not have any corner houses, but just one continuous street or never ending loops of houses??? of course not but I do ponder these lame things as I use up all my strength to lift this heavy snow. Maybe I should go to Janet Witness or maybe more likely I will keep my wimpy arms. Brent just reminded me as his Grandma lived on a corner for years….She would call the city and tell them to clean up their snow….Its not her snow, its their snow..she cleaned hers and the mess from the plow is their snow to take care of:) We really like that one.
Here is one I don’t get. Im reminded every time we go to a wrestling tournament. Nolan is in 6th grade so he is the very last group to wrestle so we are given plenty of time to sit and observe some interesting stuff. I compare it to a dog fight. Both Brent and I had to laugh yesterday…Some of these dads and moms get into like their son is literally supposed to choke the other kid out. I ask myself…Is he serious? Does he really have that look in his eye? He must really want to be on the mat….the little guys are in preschool and the tears, oh the tears. Oh we have another crier or and another one. Poor kids, their Dad says they are ok, slaps them on the butt and sends them out for another beating. Then the kid looks and acts if they are dying from the move that is sprung on them causing their face to turn red, followed by the dad yelling….GET UP!!! GET UP!!! the little man gets up and runs to his dad practically begging to give up. They say its a rough sport and is it ever. We watch the same scene over and over and we end up laughing it off, but yet each time we are at another tournament I question why are parents making their kids continue this stuff!! Next time I should count the crying kids.Is it to make them “tough” is that what it is? To learn resilience? I don’t get it. Our son has done tournaments on and off for years and I guess in some ways we have done the same…..encourage him to keep going after he is hurt and the tears are flowing but Ive also let him forfeit knowing he would have to deal with the loss that way as well.
Oh lastly about wrestling tourneys….the loudest ever. Who can yell louder? Work the half work the half, shoot, GET UP!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is a touchy one. Cell phones in school.Why? What happened to the office phone? Is it no longer available? I understand that they are convenient and all but why in school? Lunches are kids on their screens no longer talking, recess is with kids gathered around a cell phone, kids looking up everything under the sun because the school has wifi. Even if there are restrictions on the school wifi kids work around them….again why in school. Can’t they be checked in before school? any free minute at school is on these stupid things. We put a time restriction on our sons phone. He gets it in school but its limited. The odd time it is nice to have him have a phone at school is if plans change….but the good ole office phone could handle that too. Its no big deal now to watch “the Office” with your friends on your phone during study hall….what? why? WHY? Why do we have this as an option? We have been suckered into letting our kids have them in school… not even to mention the amount of bullying that goes on live while at school…..bah.
Now I know none of these really go together but they are all under a category of things to question and things that just don’t make sense to me anyway.
