Have you ever had to deal with a woman scorned? If you're a man and you have ever let a woman down, or to be more blunt -- cheated on her -- then you know exactly what I'm talking about. Most women that are betrayed will not just go away and say it's your loss. She will seek revenge, and most of the time, she will get it. This is no more evident than on the show Snapped. I have been watching Snapped on my satellite tv, which I only even got because I wanted the nfl cable package, for several years now and I have to say that as a married man, it's by far the scariest thing I have ever seen. Yes, it's scarier than any horror movie going through your mind right now, including Rosemary's Baby, The Shining, and the original Halloween.
Why is Snapped so scary? Because the women in the episodes take revenge to a whole other level. In other words, they murder their husbands. What makes this so frightening is that most of these women seemed normal and had no criminal background. They just simply snapped, hence the name of the show. But it's not always for revenge because of a cheating spouse. Sometimes it's for financial reasons. And almost every single time, it's to collect on life insurance. I don't know much about finances, but this show has taught me one thing that's very important - never buy life insurance.

Speaking of locker, school is indeed in the air. Josh isn't a school boy yet, maybe by next year. It makes me feel excited when I think of it. How he's grown from a baby to a silly, active toddler he is right now. My nephew is a first time school goer too, and when I chatted with my cousin about it, she was like happy and excited, at the same time worried and anxious. Oh well, that's part of every mommy's journey isn't it?

I think this might be my favorite time of year, autumn. A relief from summer heat, yes, but I love watching my son at his soccer classes. Me and the other parents make it a sort of picnic every week, bringing blankets, bottled water, snacks and toys for those of us with other kids to bring along.
From the moment I set my personal alarm systems to leave the house until we pull into the parking lot, my son is talking nonstop about his friends at the class, the techniques he's learned, how funny Coach Bill is. He's really excited about the last week of class, when he and the other kids take on the parents in a game. I'm in decent shape, but looking at some of the other parents, I think the kids actually have a pretty good shot at winning.
On a side note, as a stay-at-home dad, I love taking the boys to sports classes and games because I tend to be around other dads. I can't tell you how many times I've been to an art class or play group where I'm the only dad, but at the classes, there are always a few other dads there, and it's nice to be in the presence of a little testosterone.

It's back to school time again and that means shopping for school supplies. It is never a fun or easy job but it is a necessary one so, I set the Home security alarm, and away I go. It seems that these days every class has a list of the needed items and they want just exactly what is on that list. This year I had to come up with the normal basics, such as notebooks, paper, pens, and pencils, plus a few other items that were not so easy to get. The list contained a particular type of map pencil that was hard to find. Most places had already sold out of them but I finally found a place with two boxes left. Of course, the children always want something different that what is on the list and, I have learned my lesson: I do not take my children along when I buy their supplies unless it is absolutely necessary.
My town is fairly small so we do not have very many options as to where to shop. We do have a Walmart and I have found that it is usually the easiest place to buy all of the things on the list if they have not sold out of an item.
Grocery stores also generally have the lists posted for each grade level and will sometimes even package up those particular items to sell at a discount.
