jo_anne_storm: (IPS -- Grammar)
For all that I joke about being a Grammar Nazi, I do understand that mistakes happen and tend to ignore it when friends and family post something that's a little wonky.  And DH loves misusing sense, since, and cents just to bug me (he does get sense and since confused, but will play it up whenever he sends things to me, using as many combinations as possible just to get me to sigh).

This, though...

I think I would have to unfriend anyone who wrote like this:

dat is considewed an Emewgency....call da city. Dey shoulds fix it and chawge him. Or habs someone fix it, and take fwom went! Sowee not closew. We habs a contwator can needs wowk wight now and he would come immediately and fix it good!


And it has to be deliberate, right?  Some stupid affectation...  Oh, God...  Even worse.  It's a fucking PET account!  Why the hell do people have pet FB accounts?  So stupid.

In other news, last week sucked.  We managed to pick up a tummy virus and a cold in the same week.  Now that's talent.  We all spent the whole week miserable.  Youngest says he feels sick today.  That might just be because he does not want to do anything.

#3 had an audiologist appointment yesterday, just to check to make sure that nothing was wrong with his hearing.  That whole speech delay thing.  He does have a little extra pressure in his ears, but it's still in the normal range.  He heard all the sounds that he was supposed to.  Just like I've been saying, he just is not ready to talk.

He is saying more and more.  Like he says "got it" now, when he's reached something hard to get.  He's just not a chatter box.  He has big brothers and a mommy who respond to the point and grunt.

And my sister is silly.  She sews backwards.  For my crafty friends, you know when you sew on a machine, you put the bulk of the fabric to the left of the machine as you sew.  My sister puts it on the right, between the needle and the machine.  I think she can only do this because she has a machine designed for quilters.  My machine, the space there is barely big enough for my hand and the few times I do have to put fabric there, it's a disaster.

Eldest is good.  Growing his hair long and wearing a fedora.  Because he's silly that way. 

Both boys just earned their green belts in TKD and are very proud of this.  They're also taking an extra weapons class once a month and I'm going to order them their own bo staffs during the next class.  As well as sparring gear.  *winces*  That's going to be $500, between the two of them.  And that's with the TKD master shopping around to find the best deal.

Because I thought I should actually try it.

#3 is currently in his cage, cruising the edges and babbling happily away.  Yes, he cruises.  Slowly, but it's cruising.  And has two teeth coming up.  They've broken through, but are not actually up yet.

My Mom is up and using a walker.  Like #3, it's slow going.  Her right knee needs replacement surgery, but apparently they will not do it until she is more mobile.  Which I guess makes sense.  Focus on one type of PT first, and then go on to the next.

I think Sis's marriage might be in the process of imploding.  Again.  I could be wrong.  It's not like she does not bitch about her hubby all the time anyway.  Apparently he told her that he thinks she's going through a mid-life crisis and is selfish.  *blinks*  Because she got her hair cut and is going Friday to have her nails done and eat lunch with her BFF. 

*sigh*  Not that I can do anything about it.  I can't really even tell what is actually going on.  Sis always bitches about her hubby.  ALWAYS.  So...  I dunno.

Let's see, cats have an appointment tomorrow.  They've over due for shots.  #3 has one on Feb 2nd.  I still need to make one for my car.  Yes, I have a weird way of thinking about things.

My car needs it 50K check up.  I think Volvo actually does like 55K.  But it's telling me that it's time for that.  And I have a leak in the weather stripping.  Which makes for fun times, considering all the rain we've been having.  Not looking forward to the bill.

The plan to go out to Bliss right now is to make a 4-5 day trip out.  That's driving 5-7 hours each day, checking into a hotel, and exploring the local area a bit.  With DH and I both driving, but staying together (relatively).  Then he'll sign in and have 10 days of house hunting.  I need to look online again.  And do an actual search.  We're 45 days out (give or take).  Wow, moving again.  With a baby!  Yikes!!!
