M: we have a safer nation but far away from safe
O: Safer in some ways, believe we need missle defense, al quada in 60 countries, we are less respected now
M: he keeps saying Obama doesn't get it and doesn't understand

I think that Obama did a great job and that he showed them that he can and did hold his own.

Now lets just see if they decide to even let Palin out of her room and speak for the VP debate lol with Biden Thursday..they won't allow her to talk to the press..huh... wander why??????

Good Morning

Good morning everyone
Category: Life

Good morning. Its nice and cool outside. So some of the windows are open to let the nice fresh air in the house. I woke up to Leon's mouth running....great way to wake up in the morning and him griping at Sean b/c he woke up early. It was after 7 already, he didn't wake up that early and no biggie yet dumb butt has to talk like an idiot to him. What a man! I swear sometimes I wander why in the world hes still here?
When I come in here to work and tell him shh Im working I swear those are the times when he comes in here most to interrupt me with a long drawn out speech about whatever. One time its about McCain next its about Obama. Its frustrating and hes worse then any of the kids. Hes a grown man and I told him Im in here writing and working on my articles yet he comes in here and starts rambling on and preaching and running his mouth for however long and its hard to shut him up!!
He is driving me up a wall. Hes gone now, going to do his plasma THANK GOODNESS! I need a little time by myself. Jared and Chris on gone on there buses and Jesse and Sean is still here. They will be leaving for there bus in 40 minutes or so and then I will have about an hour or a little over an hour depending if dumb butt rides the bus home or not. I NEED the time alone. I don't want to hear him. I have a headache and no dp or mt dew and so I just want peace and quiet. I don't mind the kids talking, they don't ramble and preach like he does!
So this morning I am getting started on even more articles that are due today later on and contacting the other 2 to see if they have anything for me to do. I sent an invoice to the one guy so he needs to pay. Not that much but every dollar counts these days. My cordless phone quit on me, thank goodness I have a back up phone that I don't like but will deal with but it doesn't have the caller id thing on it so I hesitate when answering the phone b/c the damn telemarketers call every 2 seconds it seems like! I need to get a voicemail to b/c there isn't one now.
Anyway I hope that you all have a great day.

Should we postpone the debates?

Should we postpone the debates?
Category: Life

I think that is a no nonsense question. Of course they shouldn't cancel the debate. It should go on. We still want to hear what they have to say and if they can answer the questions that are going to be asked to them and also the fact that the economy is having problems now, well before and after the debate we will still be in the same boat so what difference does it make to postpone it. That is just CHICKEN! He is just being down right stupid and pulling a stunt! RIDICULOUS!
Here is a link to the CaffertyFile blog on CNN and there are all sorts of comments on there and most are saying don't cancel it and some are saying that if McCain can't handle the crisis that America is goign through and handle the campaign trail then whose to say that he can handle running this country?? We need someone in there that can multitask, not take oen thing at a time and put off things just b/c he can't handle it. This is crazy! CaffertyFile Blog

Making Ice Cream with breast milk!!!???

Making Ice Cream with breast milk!!!!!!!!!????????
Category: Life

Good evening everyone. Well I don't know about you all, but here today it was pretty chaotic on the news! We have the $700B dollar thing that the president wants to pass and congress and the senators/reps who ever aren't agreeing and understanding why we need that much money and how why where and when were goign to need to come up with the ways of what its going to consist of and whose going to get what and how much and how its going to be used etc
Then to top things off....McCain takes it upon his self to pull off and out of the campaign trail and also put off the debate that took them awhile to agree on a date! That pissed me off b/c they don't need him in DC to stick his nose in on all of what is going on and if they do they can call him and say come on...which by the way later on they did that and the president said tonight in his speech that he invited McCain and Obama to come talk with them tomorrow afternoon. That would still leave PLENTY of time for them to have the debate on Friday night. Oh I was looking forward to it since the day that they announced it!! I want to hear what they are going to do and want to hear some of the questions that the people want to ask them and I want an answer not a round about answer I want a straight forward and clear answer. But as for now, McCain announced that he isn't goign there as far as I understood! CHICKEN thats what he is!!!!!
Ok anyway so to the title of this blog and why I named it that...Crazy I know. Well today on the news besides the economy tumbling and all that crap and the presidential elections and all that crap they had someone from the PITA or something like that, it has to do with animal rights say that Ben and Jerry was offered to make there ice cream out of breast milk instead of the regular cow milk!!!!!!! Can you freaking believe that??? I mean really who in there right mind is going to believe that and actually do that?? NUTS! So Ben and Jerry's ice cream said NO THANK YOU!! Thank goodness b/c that is just GROSS an not right. Now feeding it to our babies well of course that is natural and nothing wrong with taht but to even think and then to say out loud and offer to make ice cream out of breast mlik that is just NOT right!!! over there in China or wherever the baby formula crisis is going on. They are hiring nursing nannies to feed the babies and pump there milk into bottles b/c they are so desperate to feed there little babies with the milk going off the shelves everyday and then were over here in a financial crunch that is spinning out of control and they have the nerve to come up with that here...DAMN!
So anyway I just wanted to blog that and let you all know about it...NUTS!
I have been writing my butt off all day and part of last night. I am workign for 2 different guys now writing and one of them is keeping me busy with 10 articles a day at only a $1 each for now and the other one is $2-3 each. I did 2 of them last night and 1 $1 one for the other guy and then I have done 5-6 today...I am still going and I am doing my best to finish the rest up tonight and then start on more tomorrow. Sandy was goign to meet me on here but shes not here so Im sure she got tied up with the kids and is just running late so I decided to blog and get some of this crap off of my mind and chest. Oh yea and I am fixing to go to photobucket and empty out the pics that I have for Sept and then I want to go to YouTube and find that Matt Damon video and share it talking about Sarah Palin and how concerned he is. I think that he made really good since and want to share it with all of you. I got our phone thing today and I found our stamps so I need to fax the phone thing back tomorrow and I need to send out our voter registration forms tomorrow to.
Thats about it for now, I am sure that later on Iwill have more to blog about, always come up wtih something. Hugs to you all stay safe

Good busy and long day

Good busy and long day
Category: Life

Good evening everyone. I hope that you all had a great day. Mine was pretty good all in all. I can't believe that it was such a long drawn out day.
I was supposed to work for a telemarketing company this morning as my first day BUT I found things that disturbed me in the way that the business especially the lady that trained and hired me and a new friend of mine acted towards me and her. So I decided that I didn't want to work for someone or some company that did my friend and me the way they did. They fired my friend for no apparent reason. Me and her are thinking its b/c she was asking the trainer about her daughter (who happens to be a scam artist) so my friend thought that she was her mom and asked and the next thing that she knows she gets an email saying we won't be needing your services for the rest of the month, which she hadn't even started yet either. We were supposed to of yesterday but leads got messed up and so they said for me to start today but after thinking and doing the way that they are being talked about in the forums aren't that great either. So anyway, I let it go. I will blog more about later on b/c I don't want others to maybe get scammed in the end.
So anyway, later on in the later evening, I got a few emails from GAF where I had put in for a few jobs and got a few. I got two writing jobs. One of them is writing 10 articles a day for 300 words each and making $1-2 on each which is fine I love writing and I need to get busy and stay busy and keep my mind going and the money coming in. Another one was for another guy/company and so far its 2 but it was my first night so I did that and they are $2-3 each. So I figure it I make $10-15 or more a day thats good for now. Money is money and right now every dollar is good for us. Leon is still doing his plasma 2 times a week which is what hes allowed to do so thats $65 a week which pays all of the water and then the next week half of the electric or half of the cable. OH I changed my phone companies from $65 a month to only $12 or so a month and its only that high because I got it unpublished for an extra $5/month. So doing WAY better with that. And I got offered another one posting in groups/forums for 5cents each. Not to sure on that yet if I got it but he wanted my id on messenger so we can talk. Then I am filling out forms for $70 for a one day project with them. So at least things are coming and I can keep the money coming in even if its only a few bucks a day.
So lets see what else...I know there was more going on just can't think now b/c Leon is in here rambling on and on and going on his little preaching sessions...OH BROTHER!
I am listening to Jack radio (in vegas) I love it. Bon Jovi is on. They play all sorts of music on there and its good. Lori and her step dad are going to Vegas in Nov and I am trying to come up with money to go but not sure if I can pull it off yet or not. We will see.
Leon showed me a video on youtube yesterday of matt Damon and his standing on the presidential election and wow what he said made since and something to think about. I want to post it on here but Im getting tired tonight so I will wait until in the morning and then I will put it on then. Hes not liking the way that Sarah Palin is (neither do I!) Leon is getting us an envelope tomorrow with a stamp on it since I can't find the few stamps that I had, so that put a stop to me sending out our voter registration things.
Anyway I am tired and Leon's still rattling so I am going to bed. Have a great day everyone.

MIA for a few days

Category: Life

So I just wanted to blog since I haven't in a few days. Not sure exactly what is going on with me. I guess a bit of depression has something to do with it. Anyway I am trying to get back into the routine of blogging, honestly I think that it helps me deal with whatever is going on in the world and in my life. If that makes since? And when I don't blog, I just get in these moods of not wanting to get on the pc, not wanting to talk to anyone on the phone or anything. I don't get out of the house usually but 2-3 times a month and usually thats around the first of the month and that's it. I send hubby or my oldest son to the little store a block away so that I don't have to get out and go.
I think that I need to go to the dr and see what the cause of my mood changes and such are. I think that I already know though. I can't do much about it. Can't afford to up and run to the dr to see what the problem is. Unless its the kids, I don't want to go to the dr and deal with them. So anyway I am trying to get back into the routine of things.
I had been having issues trying to sleep but it seems like that is ok now and I can go to sleep at a pretty descent time thank goodness.
Anyway lots going on will blog more later on
