FCAT Can Suck It


And any other standardized test that takes almost a month for all the kids to take it. Whoever decided a portion of this test should be taken on computers was a complete moron.

If you are not going to supply at least half of the school with computers to take the test so that it only takes maybe a week at most for the whole school to complete it then it is not a good idea.

I mean if we as parents can see that then I pretty much think it is common sense and any idiot can figure that out.

Talk about wasted class time. You can’t really give the kids anything to learn during this time because it might interfere with their score. Plus once the test is done school is almost out so what can you possibly teach them that they will retain during summer. School should just be out for summer after FCAT. Annoyed

I am soooo over standardized testing. I mean  if you want to give them one give them the SAT that takes one day.  I took that when I was in school and I turned out okay. Or better yet give them end of semester tests to make sure the kids are getting the information they are being taught in class and base the school rating off of that.

And then there is the new EOC (End Of Course) testing they just started a couple years ago. That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. It should be end of semester. Who in the heck is going to remember every little thing they learned way back in August. I can’t even remember where I put my keys this morning much less what I did in August.

They spend so much time reviewing for these tests before hand that it is a wasted couple weeks that they could have been learning new material. 


And to think next year we are getting a whole new lovely test that no one even knows what it is yet. YaySarcastic smile!!!

Okay I am done. Carry on with your day.

Rolling on the floor laughing

(brought to you by a irritated parent who has kept that rant in to long….plus Bub is sick so irritated parent may have too much time to think about how much she hates these tests Sick smile)

Make Up Monday: Too Faced Chocolate Bar

So I am a little late for Makeup Monday but better late then never 
which lately it has been never cause I stink at blogging

I was not going to get this palette because I need another palette like I need more fat on my belly, but HSN had a great deal soo I couldn't really pass it up now could I.

I mean the palette smells like chocolate so I needed it & it came with a full sized shadow insurance so win win right??

Look at all the pretty colors.....I definitely did the right thing!!

It's a early Mothers Day gift. Yep that's my story & I'm sticking to it ;)

Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid Update

Several weeks ago I received Paula's choice 2% BHA liquid free from bzz agent to try.

If you missed it ↓

I was definitely having some issues with old acne scars and cystic acne so I was soo ready to try this out. I was hoping by adding this to my current skincare that it would be the miracle that would clear up my skin.

This picture was taken right before I switched to proactiv + from regular proactiv.
Pretty right Crying face

A little back story:
I have combo skin and have had a little bit of acne issues since I was a teen. Not anything to crazy but I definitely do not have perfect skin and never have. I have used proactiv for about 4 years and just switched to proactiv + to try about 2 weeks before I started using the Paula's choice with it.
This picture was 2 weeks in with proactiv +. I could definitely tell a difference, but still had some spots. Warning scary pictures below of me with no makeupWinking smile !

These next pictures were taken at almost 4 weeks after starting using Paula's Choice 2% BHA with proactiv +

I look half awake here ↑ LOL!

I can really tell a difference. My skin tone is more even and my dark spots are diminishing. 

& best of all no more cystic acne. Woot Woot Open-mouthed smile

I am very happy with this product and I think I will order some more products from their line to try out as well.

Products used: Proactiv + Skin smoothing exfoliater, Paula's choice 2 % BHA liquid & then proactiv + complexion perfecting hydrator. I would also spot treat with proactiv + pore targeting treatment on occasion.

Mr. Sicky Pants

Bub had been sick this week so there has been a lot of sleeping/lounging:

Washing sheets which is Tilda's favorite:

And today a trip to the Doctor:

Today we are also wearing gray for a little boy in our community who is having brain surgery today. So please say a prayer for little Jake.
