Random Ranting

ugh life sucks! I guess we should all be happy we are alive right? We could be like the poor woman who went to the bank down the street from where my mom lives yesterday. She went to the bank with her twelve year old daughter in tow and then ended up being taken hostage in a bank robbery and killed two hours later. Right down the street from where all my family lives and where I grew up.

So close to home and so scary.

I'm thinking I just don't need to go to the bank anymore. I've got online banking, direct deposit and if I need cash I can get cash back at Target or the grocery store. Yep, no reason to go to the bank.

Did you hear about that Malaysia Airlines plane getting shot down in Russia? Yeah, remind me never to fly Malaysia Air. I'm pretty sure they are either going to go out of business or have to change their name now.

Melissa and Trevor are at my mom's house for a couple days to have fun with Grandma. Trevor keeps texting me to buy him some Ocarina toy. I finally told him I'm not buying it and to stop asking for it. Sheesh, kid isn't even here and he's pressuring me into buying him shit.

Little does he know I cleaned out his bedroom yesterday and today I took about 10 bags of stuff to the hospice thrift shop. What's weird is it was all CRAP. Hopefully he doesn't miss that crap too much when he gets home.

I stopped on the way home and bought some Spackle so I can fill in some of the holes in his room. There is one next to his bed that looks like it might be halfway to China. I swear I don't know why my kids are so destructive. I'm starting to think I just need to be mean. Not meaner, just MEAN.

I was also looking at primer and paint. The bottom half of the wall is a dark blue and I think I'm going to need to use a primer to paint over that (in something more neutral). I wanted to ask someone's opinion that worked at Home Depot in the paint department but there was no one working there.

I picked a little brochure to look at, guess I can figure it out on my own.

I also could have just checked myself out at the self check out and done my whole shopping trip at their store without talking to someone but yeah, I hate those things.

Pretty soon places won't even have employees and we'll just go in and leave our money and no one will have a job.

Well since we have no kids tonight and Scott is actually coming home on the train so should be here before 8 pm like he was last night we are going to go out to sushi.

I guess I should go clean something or go fill some holes or something.

I've been reading your blog for a few months and believe it or not I thought of MomTaxieJulie when I saw the news about that bank robbery. I don't know anyone personally from that area but I remembered you have mentioned Stockton before. Hearing the gun fight on the news, I told my husband it sounded like a shoot out from an old western movie. Very scary

Scary shit Julie. Life of late makes one want to stay in their homies.

As for the primer. You can buy the paint with the primer in it at Home Depot. But usually a primer coat will eliminate extra coats of pain.
Kils primer is good. But I have found the new paint and primer in 1 to be easier.

Have fun!
