The art of being Holier than Thou…..

So yesterday was the anniversary of my step-father’s death.  I got through it, I kept busy and did positive things.  Which brings me to this blog…..

Since when is it cool to pick/tease on good things people do?  When do we decide what is acceptable positive action and what positive action is one to ridicule?  I don’t get why  people are so bitter to see a bunch of quizzes per day, sick of all the baby pictures your new mother friends are posting, tired of hearing about your friends vacations, tired of their accomplishments, and tired of their challenges to raise awareness for illnesses, ranging from life threatening to mental.

Well, GET OVER YOURSELF!  By complaining about these things you;  A. make the other person feel like you aren’t really a friend at all 9an that you’re an insensitive prick). B.  You’re clearly just jealous. C. You need to get a life, instead of trolling facebook all day. AND finally D. Sorry,we didn’t know the world revolved around you.

So, delete the people who bother you, instead of posting little digs at their positive life style.  Get off facebook and go back to make-out club or myspace you grumpy asses.  Or, shut the fuck up already, sorry we aren’t at your level of coolness.

p.s. my delete button will be in full effect if anyone of my so called friends has an issue with any kind of challenge with donations during autism awareness month. The ugly truth is this: Activism is better served via internet now a days, a sign and a march just doesn’t break the bank anymore.  The keyboard is mightier than both sword and pen!

 

until tomorrow!

It’s raining bullets

Not really, I’m in a pretty nice neighborhood.  However, along with bullets there are guns.  Hot topic I know, but what I also know is that there is a lot of bull crap going around.  No not real bull crap, I mean a lot of lies a lot of mis-information.  So let’s break it down, Yo gabba gabba style.  not really….

After the Connecticut tragedy the president replied to and out pour of children and adults asking for more strict gun laws.  A sane person would question this but with our social media things get twisted and people don’t take too kindly to their “rights” taken away.  Of course the NRA and every person who owns a gun decided the only real way to fight this was to arm more people. Put armed guns at our schools.  As a parent I disagree on so many levels.  One main level is this, I asked my son how he would feel if there was a police guy that stood guard at his school.  He was all for it, then I asked him this, what if there were a few people guarding your school carrying guns in the hallways?  He almost cried, why you ask, well because my son at the age of 9 knows that a gun can go off at any point and after all the coverage he’s seen on the news. That can be a really scary thing to accidentally get caught in the crossfire. Even with the most skilled marksman this accidental killing can occur.  “Guns don’t kill people, people do.”  You’re absolutely right when you make a broad statement like that one. The thing is if no one had guns your theory is completely fool-proof, however we all know that isn’t going to be the case, ever.  Yes people with guns kill people, but they kill them with that said gun.  So,  my point, you still need a gun to kill and stricter laws can prevent a lot of the tragedy we’ve seen in the last 10 to 12 years.

People actually have a problem with background checks, I’m not even joking, they really do.  It’s a violation of their rights?  REALLY?!?  Well, I have something to say to those people, you are violating my right to live free of worrying about WHEN I’m going to get shot because some stupid fuck wants to have his right to carry a semi automatic, hell even a hand pistol.  People actually have a problem with how much ammo you are allowed to buy….are you kidding me who needs a stock pile of fucking bullets.  That guy who shot up that school, that’s what his mom was teaching him, to stock pile to get ready for when the world goes to shit.  Hey I got an idea why don’t you  people take that energy and put it into making this world a better place so we DON’T have to worrying about the world going to “shit”.

These are the real laws purposed:

Require criminal background checks for all gun sales. (a.k.a. closing the “gun show loophole.”)

Reinstate and strengthen the assault weapons ban.

Restore the 10-round limit on ammunition magazines.

Protect police by finishing the job of getting rid of armor-piercing bullets.

Give law enforcement additional tools to prevent and prosecute gun crime.

End the freeze on gun violence research.


So I ask you, what is wrong with these purposed laws?  Nothing, no one is taking your precious guns, no one is going to invade your home, unless you are breaking the law. And if the government wanted to, even with all your guns they will still defeat you. so get over it, get over your selfishness. it’s time to make this world a better place for our children.  if you don’t like it move to a country that allows you to have all your guns and all your ammo. buh bye!

 

Good day to you all.

And just like that **snap**

The days grew longer, the nights shorter, I clicked the heat off opened the windows and doors to let the air in.  It was beautiful outside, new blooms in my flower beds before the wintry end.  A sudden splash of heat in January.  I’m talking 60’s, I’m talking t-shirt weather, time for trampoline jumping, and raking out the flower beds.  This is my day, the christmas decorations all taken down causing the house to look bare.  All of this would be depressing on any other day but not today, today the birds chirped, the squirrels scampered, the neighbors were all out taking in the sun.

This is how the year should begin, all new, sunny, a sense of freedom to take on this new year.  Sure there will be heartache, heart break, and a bit of mending will be due. With every new life there will be some death, a balance is all it is. Things will break and need replacing, and money will most certainly be spent.  What’s the use of earning money to hoard it all away?  For a rainy day some say, I say enjoy life because we all don’t know how long it will last.

But something seems off, all this happiness, all this joy I would love to enjoy it but there is a part of me that feels a little….hollow. If that makes any sense, something is missing and I can’t seem to figure out what it is. Soberly I will stumble through my day trying to figure out what it is until I forget.  Then, bam, it will happen that “hollow” I was feeling will come to light and it’s never good. It’s never a happy surprise, it’s dark, unwanted, uncalled for.  I wish I could just know, ya know.  I hate surprises anyone who knows me knows this one thing. I like to be in the know, I need to see it to believe it. And maybe it’s because I didn’t have much to believe in growing up. Maybe that is why I have no faith?  Then again I’m a pretty “glass is half full” girl.

I’m really not sure where this blog is going. I just felt like this entry should be real. In all sense as real as I will ever get on here. Sure I bitch and moan about important shit, worthy blogs that the world can take something from. All writing stems from something, usually something you can’t control.  My grammar is horrid, and sometimes my rants mean absolutely nothing but I fear if I didn’t write, I’d sure go insane.  Sorry for my inconsistent blog folks, but I feel it wouldn’t be me if I did this any other way.

Good day to you!

what’s next for this blog

Photos, photos, and more photos.  That’s right I’m turning this into a photo blog.  So if you want to follow a real blog, ya know, with words……go here: A Pocket Full of Sunshine !!!

 

good day to you!

Again with the Monday’s

Happy monday everyone. All the kids have off today which is understandable since this is a major day in history.  Too bad they all aren’t aware this is the day we came in and stole land from innocent people. Blood was spilled and things were stolen, including virtue. But we aren’t going to get into all that. Hell, we aren’t going to get into history at all. I just want to know who decided that schools, banks, and government employees get off today while the rest of us have to work?  New rule people, if there is a holiday that all these people get off then the rest of us should have off as well, and PAID time off at that.  If you disagree, you’re probably among the 1% who i don’t give two shits about.

I woke up this morning and thought to myself  yes, no getting kids ready, or making breakfast, no screaming, just taking my time and getting ready for work.   About 5 minutes after my eyes opened the egg burps came.  and if you don’t know what i’m speaking of then i’m afraid you are not human, and in turn, i’d very much like to be your friend. Directly after the egg burps the cramps came, as they have been, all weekend so awful that i had to take advil every day this weekend.  But sadly nothing came of those cramps as of 12pm today, my body is apparently unhappy with me and wants to torture me this month.  Now with these egg burps they are so gross they actually make me want to barf.  Let me take the time right now to tell you that I absolutely HATE puking.  I’ve been at work for about 4 hours now and guess who decided to pay me a visit at work….no cramps, a surprise visit! thanks.  The egg burps are slowly dying down, and now i’m wishing i was home with everyone else WHO HAS OFF TODAY!!!!

But this isn’t exactly what i wanted to talk about today……but the events thus far has brought us to this point.  Monday’s still very much suck, and i want to be home.
