Dreary Thursday...

No photos for today. I did more of the flowers on a black background yesterday with Owen's help, sort of. He was good at moving things. Especially when I didn't want him to. But I haven't had time to edit them since I worked last evening and then spent the time before bed getting layouts organized for the weekend. This weekend is our second annual Girls Weekend in Wausau! I've got 8 or 9 layouts planned as well as a birthday book to start for Owen. I'm really looking forward to this!

Today Owen and I are going to the outlet mall with my mom. Hopefully it doesn't rain while we are there. It's been HOT and humid the past few days and it's be very uncomfortable. There were storms forecasted for yesterday but we didn't get any. Supposedly it's supposed to dry up a bit for us.

The challenge I posed at 2P's for today was: what is something about people (in general) that really irritates you? And where to begin! Most anyone that knows me knows that I find people, in general, irritating. It's the stupidity mostly. People tend not to think before they speak or do things. And I find this irritating. From someone not holding the door open for me when I'm pushing Owen in a big clunky stroller to another one throwing litter out the car window. I don't understand thoughtless behavior. One particular thoughtless behavior that I find annoying is "foot in mouth" syndrome. At my aunts memorial service a relative made a rather bad-mouthed comment about my aunt to my mom and my sister. Whether this relative knew it was inappropriate or not, I don't know, I suspect she didn't because she's just a b*tch from what I understand, and my aunt couldn't stand her anyway, but for this person to make such a rude and disrespectful comment about my aunt to my mom (HER SISTER) was just thoughtless and stupid! I THINK lots of things but they don't ALL leave my lips! I'd love to go through life ranting about all the dumb and stupid things I see people doing but I don't. Because it's not polite and I think this world would be a nicer place if people were truly more thoughtful and polite.

Yeah, I think we all have things we wish we could have stuffed back into our mouths immediately, but that type of thing does seem to flow from some people's mouths with frequency. :-(

I often wonder how a person like that would react if you simply look them in the eye and with out emotion state "Well, that was inappropriate"...

Now that I think about it. I bet that Judy would have liked it if I would have just told her to shut her mouth- but I would have used more 4 letter words. What's worse is that she fooled me with nice words and then went in for the diss.. Some people just suck! And she's one of them..

why would you focus on this?

may you be happy and well; may no harm or difficulties come to you; may you live peacefully and harmoniously.

feel kindness towards them and that is what you will receive.

I agree, most people can be stupid and rude. Alot.

I recently found out that a lot of people say inappropriate things at memorial services. My friend who just lost her father told me about all the thoughtless things people said to her at his memorial service. I think it all arises from people's desire/want to say something touching, but not knowing exactly what to say which results in something not so great. From her I learned that a great hug is enough. Sorry to hear about your aunt, and the comment that upset you during your time of mourning :(

I'm with you!

It's been rather humid and hot here too and we had severe thunder storms this evening. yuck!

I TOTALLY agree with you that you should keep things to yourself if they're inapropriate. Some people take pride in the fact that they tell it like it is...well they shouldn't! That can be rude and offensive and if what you're about to say doesn't build up and benefit the other person then keep your mouth shut please and thank you.

Oh and by the way, have tons of fun at your weekend getaway, I can't think of someone else that deserves it more than you, so enjoy!

Enjoy the weekend with your friends and get lots of SBing done! Thx for posting the challenges,too!

Have fun at your crop this weekend. Can't wait to see the layouts. I bet Owen was a great help like all little ones think they are.. I agree with the things that people do or say to irritate us.. Have a great weekend.
