I am a woman trying to find her place in this world. I have an awesome son. And, I am married to someone who is as perfect for me as someone can be. We are still mourning the loss of my daughter. We are working through it. We are still trying to find happiness in the grief. It is there. I want to help others find it with us.

A Perfect Storm that Lead to A Grumpy Idealist
I have started so many blogs today in my head. I have had a tumultuous
week. The assumption, on my part
anyways, is that this week has been a perfect storm of randomness that pushed
me a bit over the edge Monday. Then, it just kept going. It has been a
craptacular storm of negativism and complaining all around the world. I am avoiding
to avoid Facebook for a while. I have had my fill of people perpetuating
stereotypes and slinging stones that I am done. So, I am going to write two
blogs today. This one to vent. And, then later this evening, I will write my
fantasy Christmas list. So here we go.
I will only say one thing regarding the Duck Dynasty story.
As a hard-core, dreamy realist, I am in awe that people seem to be unaware that
this is more about money than anything. Will they lose more money from
advertisers if they keep the show or from the audience if they drop the show?
That and GQ will sale issue after issue for an article that has nothing to do
with being a gentleman. No, I am not referring to religion. I mean really, if
these guys weren’t loaded and have their own show, would they be in the magazine?
I think not.
I had a rough day this week dealing with some other things
that are probably always to going to always be too private to blog on because
they do not just involve me. I have however decided that from here out, the
only people that should have a direct impact on my house, both the buildings
and activities that take place there, are no one else’s business other than the
people that live there. There is a certain amount of pressure that I have put
on myself about our home that has been debilitating. But, you know what? It is
a lot easier to get up and clean because you want it done than because, in your
own little head, other people care. I have hopes of a clean home.
I may or may not have posted about people breaking into
storage buildings and homes lately. Well, it looks like at least one person has
been caught. These people have broken into our family storage building and took
some of our things. I try really hard not to judge. But, it happens. If they
really need the money for food and such, there are other ways. If it is just
plain being nefarious, then they suck.
Oh and one thing that I am going to quit doing is dumbing
myself down. I am going to start every sesquipedalian word I know!
And, one last thing, all of those people that kept
complaining about Christmas before Thanksgiving, where are you? I see very few
of you posting.
