happy thoughts...

i'm trying to think happy thoughts after some woman in a white suv with a state trooper decal on the windsheild tried to continue on her way- passed emily's bus(with the stop lights on).  are you an idiot, lady?!  BIG YELLOW BUS WITH RED LIGHTS ON DOESN'T MEAN SLOW DOWN AND HAVE A GOOD DAY!  holy sh*t i'm getting so angry!  we haven't had any issues recently with cars passing or blowing there horn.  then this broad has to come screw up my chi on a friday.  i don't care that you have a state trooper badge on your window, and i don't care that you're probably running late. 

*deep breath*'s some happy stuff.  emily was in the paper twice this week!  the first time was on sunday.  they finally put a picture in there from november.  the school participated in something called "stuff the bus", where a local radio station traveled with a bus so that people could make food donations for the county's food pantry.  great cause.  so here is that:

sorry its so crappy!  her teacher sent home a photo copy, and i scanned it.  she's right down in front though.

then there is this article that was in our town's paper yesterday--front page story actually!

the last paragraph is referring to case you don't want to read the whole article(its a great write up about her school though) here ya go:
"For the hours between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., the 19 students that fill the school’s classrooms work hard to develop their physical skills, cognitive skills and life skills. One preschooler is finally walking by herself since enrolling last March, and shortly before turning four. She is just one triumph for the faculty and staff, filling the halls she can now navigate on her own with hope for all the students to reach their full potential.

And to find out for themselves what makes each one so special."

i read that in the car while i was waiting for her bus to come...i was a blubbering mess!! 

hey, broad in the white suv...your kid is propbbaly some lazy little brat that breaks the rules and doesn't respect stick that in your pipe and smoke it....and cram that decal up your ass while you're at it. 

ok, i'm better.


  1. I would be angry too!
    So neat to have your daughter in the paper though!
    Stopping by from SITS, hope you'll come by for a visit at my blog too! I'd love to have you!

  2. I would be so mad! That actually happen to a friend of mine while her son was crossing the street! The bus driver screamed and got his attention! Thank God! The van just kept speeding by like there was no one else on the road! Very scary! Unfortunately for him, he was driving a company van with the name clearly visible and the police did not have any trouble tracking him down and giving him a ticket!

  3. I can't believe somebody wasn't going to stop for a school bus. Everyone knows that! Jerk!

    That's so cool about your little girl! I can see why it choked you up to read that. :)

  4. How exciting that Emily was in the newspaper twice! That is great! Can I say, everytime I am reminded of her limitations it really humbles me. You are an amazing woman to be able to be such a great mother. She is a lucky little girl to have you, and I don't blame you one minute for being angry with that white suv. Next time take down the license plate number and call the police. It would be even better if she were an officer and got a ticket or a huge lecture. That would really make my day.

  5. Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest! (Did I say that right?) The driver was probably texting, too...I am so thankful nobody was hurt. You are so creative! I love the outfit you made for Emily! And your family is precious! You really have it all, don't you?!!
