Too Funny

Last year, I wrote this post
Whenever I want to get my family going, I make some kind of comment. Usually it is just me venting about something or someone. I never mention any names. Sometimes I don't even say what it is exactly about, just write something. My family starts calling and texting me. They never make one comment on my FB post.

Tonight, this was my post:
ISO- 4-5 bedroom, 2 bath rooms. Preferably with animal rights. But ok if not.
 2 of my nieces text me and my sil called me. 

I think it's funny, no one really talks to me, until I put something out there for the whole world to see and then they want to know everything that is going on.
But, they could careless how I am doing and what is going on when they are around me.
If they only knew how crappy my life really is, they still wouldn't give a shit, because theirs is so perfect and if you have problems, that is your problem and deal with it.

Why Does No One Listen When I Talk?

I guess I need to go take some speaking classes, so I can learn how to speak and be listened to instead of ignored. I am so tired of feeling like I am talking to the wall when I talk to anyone.
*Do you know what it feels like to go into your daughter's counselor's office with her and the minute you open your mouth to talk about things, he's over in his chair yawning and rubbing his eyes? Really? This is my daughter you are supposed to be helping. We should be working together on this, not against each other. Show a little bit of interest in what I have to say, instead of acting like everything that comes out of my mouth has no merit and is not important to what is going on.
*But, it's not just him. It is every single person I talk to! Why?
Is it because they think I am some dumb blond and have no clue about anything. That I should just sit in the corner and keep quite.
*So, I don't have a college degree and I'm not as educated as you. Does that really matter? Do I really come across as being that stupid that my opinion really doesn't matter?
*Teach me how to talk so that people will want to hear what I have to say. Not only hear what I have to say, but listen to what I have to say and want my opinion!

I Can't Believe He is Gone!

As I sat yesterday watching the evening news, I (as were many millions of people) stunned & shocked on the death of 
Robin Williams.
I grew up on Happy Days and then Mork and Mindy.  I watched his 
career grow as I grew up. There were so many, many amazing films 
that he was apart of. As I was thinking of some of my favorites, 
Good Morning Vietnam came quickly to mind. Another at the top of my list was Patch Adams.
Princess Shaney came home from being with friends and was talking to me about it and asked who he was. Knowing she knew who he was, I was surprised that she asked who he was. I told her he played Mrs. Doubtfire, she sat there repeating that title over and over, trying to recall the movie. When, at the same time we both said Jumanji!
When she asked me how he died, I told her, suicide. She was shocked! Which then surprised me since she had struggle so much last year with the same thing. She still struggles, but has been getting the help she needs and is doing a lot better.
Today, as I watch news shows and look at Facebook, it just shows how much he was loved by millions of people from around the world and all walks of life. * I changed from our local news station to ESPN to see if there were any updates on some sports things, the guys on ESPN were even talking about Robin Williams!
*The most important thing we need to learn from this tragedy is,
DEPRESSION is a real illness and it is time to do something about it. We have lost way too many good people to this disease and it needs to stop and it needs to stop now!
As we were watching a local news show tonight, they talked about depression and suicide ( this local station does this every couple of months), Mr. Hubs asked, with him being so famous, do you think this will turn into an ongoing awareness, like with Magic Johnson and AIDS? I told him yes! I sure as hell hope it does!! If anything can bring more awareness to suicide, this is it!!
I just hope it will.
