A Proud Moment

I kept the kids up tonight to watch the DNC coverage tonight. No matter what your personal politics may be history was made.

The most amazing thing that happened tonight in my house was when my soon to be 14 year old son looked at me and said he hopes that Barrack Obama whether elected or not inspires better presidencies in the future, thankfullyI think my kiddos get it!

Don't Be a Douche Bag

Why you are chilaxin on the computer stop playing World of Warcraft for 5 seconds and check out
www. jenandchelsea. com I taught one half of the duo everything she knows...well maybe that's a lie but I did stop her from getting a unnecessary plastic surgery many years ago and so for that I know she is forever appreciative! So go now!

I drive even myself nuts!

I am on a typical day very good with making decisions...for other people. When it comes to myself I find it very difficult making decisions. I recently was presented with an opportunity for an all expenses paid trip to Washington D.C. for a conference and I was really really torn on weather or not I should go. There were so many things holding me back, what would I do with kids, what about the dog and holly crap my boss is going to flip if I ask. After much mulling it around I told my mother about it, I don't know why I didn't ask her to begin with, but she very quickly settled it for me and told me to go and enjoy it. So I'm going and I just cannot wait. The best part is we will be moving to that general area next year and so I can get a slight lay of the land hopefully while I'm there and then I can be V's tour guide when we explore together after our move.

Go Fish

I was listening to someone go on and on the other day about immigration in particular immigrants from Mexico and as with a lot of times their views completely differed with mine, so I put some thought into it and have come up with my own immigration plan that I would like to submit to the lawmakers.

There are several people who absolutely drive me crazy, celebrity and people I just know, these people contribute almost nothing to society and making it a better more productive place. So I propose that we take these people, you know the Heidi Montag's, Lauren Conrad's, Spencer Pratt's and people I cannot name of our country and trade them. So for every one of them that we give to Mexico for example, we could take 7 hard working Mexican's who would like to come and contribute to our society. People who have no problem getting actual job's and maybe even using more than a couple of their brain cells.

It's just a thought and of course I need to smooth out some of the rough edges, but it's a start.

When life hands you lemons

Lately have had this feeling like I don't really belong anywhere. Not at home, work, with friends really anywhere. I'm not usually insecure but recently things have happened that have made me feel insecure and I'm not quite sure how to get over it, it's one of those situations where you just want to lock yourself up in the house and not deal with it, I just don't want to be around the people who made me feel this way in the first place. So what do I do? These are the time I desperately wish my husband was home for the moral support when I go through these stupid drama filled times.

I'm Alive!

Barely but I am alive. Life has been interesting to say the least in the last few months. Life changes rapidly and just keeping up sometimes can be quite a challenge. We've survived our half way point, and made all the way through R&R. R&R was amazing we had an absolute blast and I made sure I savored every minute of it.

So now it's back to work and back to Iraq oh and let's not forget thank god the kids will be heading back to school. Life will be getting back to "normal" whatever that means in my house.
