May it be a quick one…

Just heard on the radio – they’re advertising iPads as an educational tool. I have to say, if I still had rugrats small enough to be at school they will definitely be learning the hard way – with books, the way I had to!! The chances of me getting a rugrat an iPad without me having one for myself is slightly small, if nonexistent!! Β How things have changed!

Tuesday afternoon, I get an e mail. From the Porra. He’s bought me 2 tickets to go and see the Hobbit. In 3D at a maul close to me. Because, I don’t actually know why. I asked him if he thought I was even remotely worried about the movie? Shame, poor thing. The ex wants more money. And she’s already getting a huge amount of maintenance. He does not want to pay her more money, so, she involved the kids. Now the youngest does not want to speak to his father, and the eldest has grudgingly agreed to give dad time to talk over the weekend. I wonder what she could possibly have said to them to have that kind of effect. As passionless as this man is, he only has time for his kids. She should know this, and not take that away from him – have to wonder how people can imagine screwing with their kids is ever a good idea in a battle for mere money! I hated my ex for a long time. Sometimes still do. But I’ve never used the kids in the fight against him. He’s still their father, regardless of what an ass he can be sometimes. They will eventually find it out for themselves. Then again, if a man’s an ass with a woman, does not mean he will be an ass with the kids.

Anyhow, this means I will be going to see The Hobbit on Saturday afternoon πŸ˜‰

Before that can happen though, still 2 days of work to get through. Better hop to it then – enjoy yours!

Check Out

I was in the Express Lane at the store, quietly fuming.
Completely ignoring the sign, the woman ahead of me had slipped into the
check-out line pushing a cart piled high with groceries.
Imagine my delight when the cashier beckoned the woman to come forward,
looked into the cart and asked sweetly, ‘So, which six items would you like
to buy?’

Wouldn’t it be great if that happened more often?!

  1. Saw The Hobbit last week…. I’ll be interested to hear your response…! (non-committal remark; don’t want to spoil it!)…. πŸ˜‰

    The kids do get caught in the middle sometimes… too, too sad..
    Really glad to hear your rational appreciation of your ex… No good fighting; nobody wins, particularly not the kids…!

    • One of the kids saw it, and he raved about it.
      I’ve read the book a few times, now I’ll see if the movie does the trick πŸ˜‰
      As for the exes – it took me a while to get to that point of view – while you’re in the thick of things, you don’t always think rationally.
      A sad situation.

      • Yes, I appreciate what you are saying… My daughter’s father needed to be taken to court in order to get him to do the ‘right thing’… I let her make up her own mind about him, which she did as the years went by… Yes, it’s sad…!

  2. I think you’re going to enjoy the movie. Looks the same as the prequels, I saw a commentary show about the movie and how it was made or whatever, but it looks good. LOTR was good enough for me, I’m skipping hobbit…

    • Well, I have these free tickets and all…
      Might as well go watch it – if nothing else, it kills a Saturday afternoon πŸ˜‰
      But I think it will be a cool move πŸ™‚

    • Quite right – I’ve read LOTR about 3 times already and every time I read there’s something I missed the previous few times πŸ˜‰
      Looking forward to it – hope it’s worth all the hype!

  3. people missed the first part about kids now using iPads in school – a friend of mine has just had Wi-Fi installed in their house so that her daughter can complete her homework and send it to her teacher, while the rest of the family do their things over the internet. Sad.
    My grandkids who are staying with us will have to make do with books and pens.

    • Books and pens worked even for my kids – and they’re relatively well educated πŸ˜‰
      Kids these days just really have it way too easy!
      People are “unlearning” how to write…
      A sad state of affairs.
