Inspirational Love Notes for Special Parents - You Have a Mission
I tell my daughter that everyone is weird. Some people just don't bother to hide it... Her version of a compliment is, "that lady is weird..."
"You're weird," the kids at school told me and I'm all like, "Thank you!" - with a huge smile on my face. True story. =]
Be weird! | Being called weird is like being called a limited edition.
Proud to be unique.
Proud to be a bit weird. Limited edition. Quote life be yourself.
Oh yeah!! I'm a limited edition! Just remember this @Denise H. grant koogler @Eric Lee DiChiara Ringling @Chelsea Rose Rose Chilton @Melissa Squires Squires Porterhouse @Megan Ward Ward Pate
Food for thought! Being weird can also always leave a good first impression.

THINK before you verbally barf, you ignorant dumbshits. I'm OH so sure my ex husband will make an excellent nurse - no doubt whatsoever. *snort* I was married to the moronic, self-centered jerk off for over 7-years, & he (despite his 'medical schooling/training' & alleged "desire to help those in need") *SNORRRT* - always ASSumed I was simply being an overly dramatic hypochondriac when I expressed my physical & mental state to him. Yeeeeah - you were MOST clearly cut out to be a caretaker. NOT! Ex-hub couldn't even keep up with taking care of our PUPPY, for fuck's sake (which he insisted on having because he - admittedly- couldn't handle the fact that I paid more attention to our newborn than him at the time). He did not, however, take our pup out to pee often enough at ALL.. & this was all when our son was still an infant & I was chronically exhausted - either breast feeding, changing a diaper, or trying to squeeze in a nap. He couldn't even handle potty trips for the puppy-in-training, while he was AT home & our son was entirely under MY care. Wow. Uber weird behavior for such a "dog lover", in my opinion. It was a massive source of contention between ex & I for quite some time throughout our marriage & was actually - most apparently - the straw that broke the twink-ass bitch's scrawny back. He's not a camel at all though - huh-uh; he's a SNAKE. We separated for 7 months (yeeeeeears ago) & nearly divorced within our first 1-2 yrs of marriage, but ended up reconciling because I was stupid enough to believe a changed man was standing at my doorway when he crawled back. oOKAY..... *flashback to piss parable*... Ex was across the hall from our own apartment at the time, watching premium cable on our neighbors' TV (for whom he oftentimes "house/pet sat".... pfffft.. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt he was only over there to binge on free porn --- it's just what he does. He probably has a more "intimate" relationship with Rosey Palm & her 5 sisters than any human). We HAD two TVs & better than basic cable in our apartment at the time.. soooooo, WHY, exactly were you holed up, choking your chicken, instead of helping out with our child &/or - at the VERY LEAST - the dog? Our puppy (during the same time that ex was, more than likely beating his cocktail weenie, across the hall in the neighbors' apartment while they were out of town) pissed a huge puddle on OUR carpet. I [most obviously] interrupted a super special moment for ex-nub, because when I alerted him of the dog pissing on the floor.. AGAIN (this happened so frequently it was ridiculous insanity): he stormed in, stomped around cursing, & half-assed cleaned up our pup's mess.... & then announced that he didn't love me anymore & also: I needed to find a new place to live, asap. ~FINI~ Yep. WOW. He. Was. The. Biggest. LOSER. Ever. And still is. His parent's payed our [HIS] way through the majority of our marriage since ex-dud didn't work the 'better' part of our 7+-ish years together, & was attending school like it ALONE was his mothereffing career path (although, he only went to class when he wasn't too hung over due to shutting the bars down the night/morning 'before' [doing cheeses only knows to cod knows who] - I, on the other hand, was always home... struggling with our colicky newborn, eight hours away from all family & friends. I. HAD. NO ONE. Ex usually strolled or stumbled in from his bar crawl around 3am back in those days. Such a mystery as to why he flunked out at UA.. & why I am - to this day, so disgusted with his sad, sorry, pancake flat, excuse-makin ASS. Ex did NOT take college seriously. At all. When we divorced he had something somewhere in the range of $60,000+ in HIS college tuition to pay off... & he has WHAT to show for it? A BS degree?! Damn near 20-yrs of schooling (OH! .. plus all of your "gopher" paramedic training) & that's ALL you've got to show for it?! Bitch, PLEASE. How the FUCK do you let your fat-tittied, flat-assed wife sit over there talking senseless shit about your son, your son's mother (& "best friend forever, no matter what" - YOUR words, verbatim)?! Your wife is now married to the most pathetic excuse of a man I've ever encountered --- AND I HOPE YOU AT LEAST HAVE A CONSCIENCE & HONESTLY KNOW THIS TO BE TRUE. Spineless fucking, pencil dick, bastard. Jesus-H. NOW, however, ex appears to think he's hot shit because he (FINALLY - only took him 5 years) snaked his way into the healthcare field.. & yet continually refuses to acknowledge my DIAGNOSED/X-RAY'D/MRI'D medical conditions & even went so far as to call me a "hypochondriac" in front of our son a few months ago - which my son in turn came here &, entirely innocently, asked what the word meant. Well played, morons. "Well, honey - that word means your daddy's a pathetic, ignorant, lying, sack of dogshit!". No, that is not how I explained it at all, but I was sure as fuck thinking it. I do not need nor want your pity &/or fake sympathy. I don't really give a shit whether or not my 'stress concerns you' idiot bitches, but you also need to pull your heads out of your asses & realize this isn't one of your 7,549 videos or illegally pirated DVDs which you ignorant bitches own; this is REAL life, you effing maggot farmers."Suck it up & drink some fluids." (Goddamnit that's an entirely ignorant poptart you married there, chief - sorry about your luck; I'm just callin' it like I seez it. We still get a good chuckle out of the bubbly chicken scratch bullshit you turned into the courts, which she apparently tried to sound professional & intelligent in. It. Is. Hysterical.) I guess desperate times call for desperate measures, but perhaps you should work on being a little more human so that you can relate or empathize with others.. & perhaps become a better judge of character. OR not. Just keep scraping the very bottom of the barrel. If you choose to view the world through your current fluffy fucking twit-twat-tittybang's unrealistic, PUH-LUMP, unicorn-loving, purple-tinted glasses - GO FOR IT, FAGGOT. Otherwise - A GD grip: GET ONE. You are a pathetic little punkass bitch who apparently fibs to his son... A LOT. Your bitchass couldn't even fire back at the a-hole who pulled out in front of us in Alabama while I was still 8-9 months pregnant. Seriously? REALLY?! The SOB pulled up beside us at the light & I asked the fat fucking pasty a-hole where the bloody hell he got his driver's license. He replied by calling me a bitch (SO. ORIGINAL.) & YOU, as my husband-at-the-time & a-father-to-soon-be sat your pussy ass down like a muthafuckin' clown, right next to me, in the driver's seat, with both windows rolled all the way down. You HEARD every last word of what the hell was being said, but you are a chickenshit. You didn't want to acknowledge what was happening because then you may have had to react like a real man, so you pretended you didn't hear the a-hole at all. But.... what's this I hear about you punching a cop?! Are YOU smoking crack now?!! I. Call. BULLSHIT. Scurred much, widdle baby? You probably should be; you've pulled a copious amount of horse shit on various individuals throughout your life.. & you should fully expect that all to come 'round, full circle, & beat your sorry ass to a bloody pulp before you escape this lifetime. You've been that way for as long as I've known you.. & to be completely frank, dude: I think it's getting worse by the year - most especially when you cower & duck behind your dumb shit, sugar momma. As IMPORTANT as education (most obviously *cough*sarcasm*cough*) was to ex-hub & how insanely TIGHT our budget was, while living in AL, he still miraculously managed to scrape $250 of his parents' money together to buy a purebred pup (which he lied about & told his mommy was "given to us by a friend"). A 27-yr old MANCHILD, lyin' to his gotdamn momma's face.. WHY didn't this lightbulb go on YEARS ago in my cranium?! I suppose I simply wasn't mature enough to handle the truth at the time. But, once again, I DIGRESS.... I didn't want our baby crawling through dog piss once he became mobile for the love of HYGIENE.. most especially during the period which they're on the move & searching for stimuli & they stick EVERYdamnTHING within reach directly into their mouths. Most obviously, ex & I had entirely different priorities that simply did not mesh, or even run remotely parallel often enough. But enough about that. The disability. COME to find - (years later - as of '13) with my current [2nd & LAST, lawd willin' & the creek don't rise] husband's assistance (who cares for me, oftentimes helps get me to appointments I can't manage on my own, & always asks pertinent questions or gives details to our doctor - which is a skill that typically eludes me in such situations, due solely to my intense anxiety related to & sincere fear of going to the doctor in the first damn place, piled on top of ridick social anxiety): I have an entirely broken down, busted up, spine & neck, & BRAIN LESIONS (cause STILL unknown), you fucking pencil-dicked bitch. You just suck really, incredibly bad.. all around. I wanted - insanely enough - to have a sincere sit down with you, face to face, in order to purge & apologize to you for all of my fault in matters, but I quickly caught wind of your delusional tub-a-lub's 'TUDE when she asked me how I felt about you, trust wise. BAHAJJAJAJHAHAJAHAJHAHAHAAH. You've most obviously left huge chunks out of your "version" of how things went down. But whatevs. I didn't begin broadcasting any of your dicey details or dragging skeletons out of your closet until you two decided it'd be wise to FUCK WITH VISITATION/TIME SHARING; I barely skimmed the surface the SECOND time she brought her hubby-wubby up (simply told her that there was a mutual breakdown in our trust for one another) & suddenly I heard nothing from the two ton twit for days.... & THEN she was stupid enough to text MY husband, asking about discounts on RV sealant. Psssht. Again: bitch, PLEASE. I understand you're living under some sort of incredibly fucked delusion & with some idealistic 'happily ever after' scenarios all mapped out for the two of you, because you most obviously do not truly know the man you chose to marry. You can't always get what you want, muff-cabbage. I know for fact I did not wreck my first marriage singlehandedly; I hope you honestly do as well - otherwise you are a first class idiot & an absolute moron. I wanted to apologize & ask ex-hub's forgiveness for things I did in the last year we were together. I really did. I even started rehearsing that shit. I felt weirdly compelled (or guilted, perhaps) to own my shit with him, but truly, the only thing I feel I owe him at this point is a roundhouse kick to his little COINPURSE. I WAS sincere in that hope to settle our differences & live in peace; but when you act the fuggin' fool - the way you've been carrying on since your marshmallow fluff chick got shut the fuck down after I kindly ASKED to be left alone with my thoughts for a bit & she ignored me & got a horrid case of verbal diarrhea - PSSSHT - I no longer feel guilt of ANY sort. None whatsoever. You finally fixed one of my broken pieces & you & your tittyf*ck pop-tart taught me to never EVER count on anyone else to 'have my back'... & also to not feel guilty for calling people out on their shit. Ever. Thanks again, too, for - other than our son - for whom I am entirely grateful - absolutely nothing other than debt (ummm.. because, yeeeeah - I personally own $30,000+ worth of shit --- NOT) & even more doubt in humanity. And a huge BY THE WAY to anyone who doesn't personally know me & was offended by my commentary including the word 'faggot', please forgive me & understand that I do not call gay men faggots. Ever. I love, love, LOVE my gays. I DO, however, call pathetic, slimy, dishonest, emotionally detached, spineless, idiotic, lazy men FAGGOTS, with no apology to their (typically) engorged EGOS. Also homophobes of either gender. That's ignorance at it's absolute peak. Head's up, gay bashers: it happens in nature allllll the time.. so it is most clearly NOT as "unnatural" as you all run around spewing.
