You're not supposed to say that

Propriety.  Is that too much to ask?  I love being around {most} people. I'm a people watcher. I love talking to people, however, if I hear ONE more person tell me how tired I look I might go ape shiz {apologies for use of such a crass word} on someone.  Question: When was it ever a compliment to tell someone they looked tired?  Do YOU like being told you look tired?  Well I didn't think so.  It just so happens that I am fully employed twice over.  My hours of "operation" exceed well over 90hrs per week....not to mention "damage control" for 14 hormonal teens {who I love dearly.....speaking of...I feel like I've skipped the fun part of parenting beginning with infancy, the terrible 2's etc and have gone straight for the devils backbone we know as the teen years...ahhh bliss}, on a rare occasion I will bank at least 6 hours of sleep {lucky me} I'm not complaining {I did this to myself} just informing my cherished followers and random readers of this blog that if, in case, we cross paths within the next 2 months....please go easy on will not be over looked in my prayers that evening :)

I used to have people tell me that ALL the time when I was working @ BYUH Catering... we had strange hours. Now days when someone says that I take it like a compliment and say "Thanks". I figure if my life is busy to the point that on some days I look like I've been dragged behind a horse and a cart that's a good barometer of how I'm putting my time to great use.

I totally agree! Two weeks ago a customer told me I looked tired and I thought the same thing. Does that sound like a compliment to you? Then last week while home recovery from surgery, someone dropped by and brought me cookies, which I thought was super sweet until they proceeded to tell me how pale I looked, also NOT a compliment. Good luck chica, I think you look great! Love ya!
