Lies of Omission

So, I don't write often about my person issues in my life because who wants to read a bunch of negativity.  However, I do have a question.  

Today I shared some information with my spouse.  Just regular old information, nothing he asked about, nothing of any value, just plain old basic information. He got upset over the content of the information.  I asked if he would have rathered I didn't share the info.  

His reply was yes, I you should have told me, not telling me would have been a lie by omission.  

Now, what i am wondering is, is that really a lie by omission?  There are things that occur each and every day that we don't tell people.  I don't think those things are lies by omission.  A lie of omission is purposely keeping information to disillusion a person.  

Enough of that.

Yes that is a correct title.  Same shit different school.  Just got off the phone with bubba's algebra teacher.  For those that aren't privy to my real life, bubba started public school after he informed me he "didn't wanna do his work" in homeschool. I do not possess the patience or knowledge base to teach a high school boy. Lol. The transition went smoothly and he LOVES the social aspects. Fast forward to today....finals were all week. This morning his algebra teacher called, he is failing. Several answers on his final were "don't know" but even with that he got a 70. He would have passed IF he turned in his assignments. De ja vu all over again. Que the tutoring followed by the discipline hopefully not followed by the encouragement to seek other educational opportunities. Lol.

Come on now.....

So, i am in the process of find, securing financing and purchasing a new to me vehicle. Today I went down to a dealership I have done business with before, my family has done ALOT of business with and spoke with a very nice salesperson.  This post is not a rant about her, it is a rant about the absurdity of the car industry.  I have a decent SUV with minor issues but very high miles.  Hence the car shopping...lol.  Well anyways, I wanted to use this for a trade in to offset the down payment.  The take my beloved SUV and do their "appraisal"  and they come back with the offer of a lifetime.  How could i afford not to take it......they will give me a whole whopping $300 trade in for my vehicle.  Um, how about no.  I can get a big write off donating it.  I can keep it for that price.  That was an insult and not even worth the drive over there.  Oh well on to more vehicles to look at and experiences to have.

Tides and time

Things in my life are always in a constant state of flux. Much like the tides like experiences and problems ebb and flow. I can accept this and acknowledge my part in the problems I create. What I can not get in board with is the way that some days things seem to be forgotten/forgiven/accepted and thrn in the next breath everything is on the verge of erupting.  To quote someone I know "either move forward or get out. Stay still is the same as going backwards." Well that applies to more than just me.  Also, remember moving forward doesn't always mean fixing what has been broken.  It means moving forward----sometimes in new directions.  Sometimes with the same people. Sometimes new people. Sometimes the same places. Sometimes new places.  But any action is preferable to no action.

Mob Wives

Ok y'all, I am fixin to share a guilty pleasure of mine -  Mob Wives...on MTV.  I am addicted to this show.  It is stupid crazy and makes my mini (ok not so mini) melt downs seem a lot more mellow.  I am a cross between Drita and Renee.  Psycho and a scrapper.  Oh and if any men are reading, there are some great tits on this show.
