We are all mad here

Excuse me while I rant for a minute.
I am my own worse critic. I know that I am not a super model. I know that I am fat. I know I have a bad temper sometimes. I know some days I am a basket case. There isn't anything someone could say about me that I don't already know. I over analyze every single thing that I say and do. I imagine so many what if's in a day it makes my head spin. Some days I have a hard time putting myself together. Every day I feel like I don't really know what I am doing with life. Does anyone ever have their shit together every single minute of every single day? I think not.
So while I can sit here and imagine all the what if's that will transform me into the person my mind thinks I should be, I also know there are good things about me too. I don't need someone telling me my faults because, trust me, I already know.
Why can't people just let others be happy? We all know our own faults and probably dislike ourselves more than our own worse enemy. Nobody is perfect. Everyone has their own thoughts on what attractive means. We all have our own variations of "normal". Just because someone doesn't act or dress the way that we would, doesn't mean we are better than they are. We all only have one shot to make the most out of our lives. Yet we spend so much of it judging and criticizing other people. Often times, people we do not even know on a first name basis, if even at all. If anything this says more about our character than the ones we are judging.
We live in a greedy selfish society where money means more than the life a human. Kids being killed because people want the things they cannot have or afford. When did society start taking human life, or any life, for granted? Every day I am seeing stories about the sick, twisted, greedy, and selfish people causing mayhem in their cities. People killing people for the most ridiculous things. People killing animals for pleasure.
Why can't people just let others be? If a man wants to wear a dress, let him. If a mom wants to have 19 kids, let her. If a person born male would be happier as a female, let them. If gay people want to be married and have children, let them. Assuming that people are not hurting others in doing what makes them happy, then why the hell can't they? What is so wrong with having a happy society that we have to snicker at those who are not like ourselves?
The older I am getting the more I realize how twisted this society is getting, or has been. Perhaps my blinders were on before, but heck, what is this world coming to? Is everyone going mad?

I Can't Do It All

I cannot speak for everyone, but I feel that as a stay at home mom, wife, and student that there are not enough hours in the day. Every night I go to bed thinking about a million things. The never ending things on my to do list that I never even got to start. Between making meals, wiping butts, breastfeeding, cuddling and trying to get the baby to nap, wiping up messes, doing the dishes, feeding the animals, letting the dog in and out, constantly being asked for snacks and drinks (even after being told that they are too full to finish a meal), and tantrums I find that there is not a lot of time left in the day. Not enough time to do all the things I wanted to when the day began; technically before the day even began. I usually have a mental to do list that I want to accomplish the next day. The last week or so I have been making a to do list on a piece of paper. I have come to find that the only ones that get accomplished are the ones that I do everyday regardless, like the dishes.

Relationships Affected by Social Media and Modern Society

The Internet can be a glorious thing. We have instant access to so much information it makes my head spin sometimes. I was just sitting here trying to remember a time when I did not have the Internet. Even more so, a time when social media did not exist. The only way to interact with people was to talk to them in person, or if you were lucky, you could talk to them on the phone. I spent many hours using telephones when I was younger. I remember using the land line at my house to talk to my friends when we weren't at school. Once cell phones came out and I was finally allowed to have one I remember having to wait until after 7pm to make phone calls because it was free minutes. Data did not exist. Texting was not common at all because it cost extra. Cell phones did not have cameras on them quite yet.

In years to follow, phones were getting "smarter" you could text and call who ever you wanted to. Send pictures to people and upload them to your computer. I remember using th…

I have had enough of the belittling of stay at home parents

You know, I have had quite enough of people telling me that I am "just" a stay at home mom. That it is my "job". That I am lesser because I do not get a pay check.

I am sick of being told that my husband is entitled to all the sleep he wants because he has to be up for work everyday. Apparently I am just expected to function as a zombie everyday with a big smile on my face and showcasing brilliant patience.

I am tired.

On average, I spend about 18 hours a day being a single parent. Meaning, I am the sole caretaker of my children's physical and mental health until my husband gets home from work. Usually he is home by 4pm and then he will shower and get his lunch ready for the next day. I will make dinner, often times while still tending to the baby. After dinner, I am usually on clean up patrol. Meaning clean up the table and clean up the children. After bath time, we usually congregate in our room on the bed. Watching a show or two, watching Pickle play with to…
