Keeping along with the subject of things I love... Our family does not eat out very much. We try and fix the girls healthy meals and like to stay away from the fast food. However, sometimes it is good to let a kid be a kid and yesterday I got the girls Happy Meals. If you have not been to Mcdonalds in awhile they have changed their Happy Meals to always include the apples and much smaller portions of fries. They are so cute!!! I have to admit I was surprised at how many fries made up 100 calories.... Not many!

A-Z (Things I Hate)

I guess I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed today thanks to my beloved TV. I turned the TV on and the first thing I saw was the creepy Burger King Guy! Then I was flipping channels and I saw Nancy Pelosi (scream), then I made it to the E channel and they were doing a Kardashian marathon (seriously), MTV had a Justin Bieber video playing and then my go to channel- the food network, had Emeril Lagasse on and he was humming!!!! I turned off the TV and tried to go back to bed but the more I thought about it the more pissed off I became... Now you have -

Tammy's Hate List A-Z

A - Amazing - This has to be the most over-used word, drives me crazy!! Thank you Jeff for pointing this out to me :)
B - Burger King Clown -

C - Cancer - The worst word I know!
D - Drugs - Since I work in health care I see so much enabling and abuse... It is really going to hurt all of us in the end if something does not change.

E - Emeril Lagasse - I use to love this man with his BAM, but then all of a sudden he can't cook without humming, what is up with that???

F - Food and Fat - I Love food and now I am fat ... so for today I hate food.
G - Gilbert Gottfried - The voice just drives me nuts!
H - Hair - I always have issues!!!
I - Icy roads - I hate driving on ice, I am the worst at it.

M - Mice - They will always creep me out!

S - Spam - The food product and mail form.

V - Vodka - Goes back to my college days :/
W - Welfare - I could write a book on this subject. Quit looking for a hand out and get a damn job!!!

Y - Yanni - I am sorry but he is just a turd!
Z - Zumba - I have no rhythm, I can't dance, therefore I can't zumba.

God Bless the Teachers

The other day I was riding in a school bus with about 20 kindergarten kids, 2 teachers, and 8 chaperones. It was the first field trip of the year and we were going to an apple orchard and pumpkin patch. All in all it was a fun trip but on the bus ride home I could not stop thinking about stuff....

I need an aspirin, My head is killing me!
Our teachers are way under-paid!
Why is Everything sticky?
Being a bus driver would suck!
My mom and dad were saints.
Wish we could have toured the winery too.
Lunch time is not fun with so many needy kids!
I wish I had a dollar for every shoe I tied today.
Did I have this much energy as a kid?
The Octomom is a nut!!!
Kate plus 8 is a nut!!!
I Hate noise!!!!!!!!

The bus ride home seemed to take forever! It wasn't until I over heard 2 boys fighting over who had the biggest pumpkin and then watching as several apples rolled down the aisle that I smiled because I almost decided along time ago to become and teacher... There has to be a place in Heaven for all of the really good teachers out there! God Bless you all!!!
