Accommodating Spouses

Email correspondence between spouses:

Me: Can we put up a fence in our front yard? 

Dan: Here is the city PDF for fences

Me: Can we do this?

Dan: I don’t see why not.  

Me: Since you are being so accommodating…what about this?

Dan: I think you have to have frosted glass if it is going to be in the front yard. 

Hung Up

You know what I can't ever seem to figure out? How do craft/DIY bloggers they hang crap up? Am I a total moron that I can't figure this out?  Every time I hang something up, you can always see the picture hanger, or the nail, or the over the door wreath hanger. Are these people just hot gluing things to their doors, walls, mirrors? Are they using Liquid Nails? Are they photo-shopping the hangers out? I would like to see a good solid tutorial on how to hang stuff up.  

Ain't Nobody Got Time For That

Sometimes, when I think that I should make a triumphant return to blogging, I remember that I am too busy living my life to take step-by-step pictures so that everyone else can see how I am living my life. Also, henceforth, I shall be using the largest font possible when I blog. It makes me feel more important

Daylight Savings is Stupid

Daylight Savings is stupid.  I don't really understand it at all. I decided that I would continue to get up at 6am, which was really 5am, so that when we have to change clocks again, I won't be so grumpy. Because let's face it, I am not a morning person, and I am indeed, very grumpy in the AM. On a brighter note though, I have a whole extra hour to exercise. Umm..yay?

Honest Blogging

Oh blogging! How you have changed. It seems to me, that blogging has become less about the personal story and more about the sponsored post, the blog hop, the analytics and the capitalism.  What used to be a fun way to while away some spare time and engage with others who you may not have ever met, has become more like watching network T.V, in which blog posts are scripted and editorialized.  I am not a fan.  I miss the connection and the sharing of things with my blog friends, stories, advice, joy, tears, unedited photos, posts about how the cat thought that the Swiffer was the enemy and tore it to shreds, not a post about what a great job Swiffer did on your floors because Swiffer sent you some free stuff in exchange for your “honest” opinion.  I think it's time for a little reflection bloggers. Why do you blog? Honestly?

That is all.

A Place to Start

I am not a religious person, by definition. My mother decided that she would let me choose to be baptized and in doing so, I have gone unbaptized. I have been to many churches though, with friends, family, and even strangers and let me tell you what I have learned. Listen closely, because this is important.  All organized religions share the same core beliefs.  EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.  The only difference between Christianity and Islam is the fact that one thinks Jesus is the savior and one thinks that Muhammad is the savior. Take that in for a moment. All the hate and discontent that exists between the two religions, the difference is so small.  The core tenants remain the same. Love, acceptance, respect, for the world in which you live for all people and things that are upon it. I have been a student of theology for most of my life. A short time really. I don't pretend to know everything. I know what is in my heart at this moment. I believe that thoughts become things, so, if you love me, as all humans should love one another, just read the lyrics to this simple song, out loud, or in your head, but believe in them, and then maybe they will become something.

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.

Holy Shit y'all!   Remember when I said this?  Well apparently, I was mistaken.  Please accept my apologies.
