And this is the crap that just outright flipping ticks me off!! Stupid crap like this!!!! So congress leaves for however long (didn't read the article to see how long, my guess is a week at least!!) And they just up and go off for there summer break to go out and enjoy the summer with family friends etc...which is all fine and great if the ones that are providing the food that they are buying and eating weren't hurting RIght now!!!! There is no hiding it that this country has a ton of issues right now and one of the main ones is drought!!! Our farmers that work hard daily to give us the food that we live on could really use some aid and yet instead of helping the farmers that provide all of us food ... They take a break for summer!!!!!!!!!!!! Here's the article............ http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/02/politics/congress-drought-aid/index.html
UPDATE- I just read some of the article...they won't be back to do anything until AFTER LABOR DAY???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FLIPPING RE…
I just want to say that I think that everyone that is in the Olympics is doing an awesome job!!! GO USA!!!I haven't been able to just sit and take the time to watch it as much as I wanted too but I have been hearing about all the awesome medals that the US is winning by getting tweets and keeping up...way to go US!
Happy to say that I am caught up and going to stay that way with my blog challenges...well caught up for August!! I know that I missed a few in July but one day at a time! I love blogging and I jam going to be making it on my daily list of have to-do's from now on like I used to do. I find that I am less stressful sometimes when I blog about things...even if its about music or reviews or politics lol or whatever it helps relieve my stress which is a great thing. I love writing and need to stay in it like I use too... So be looking forward to a lot more blogs from me about any and everything. I have been in Cafemom a lot more lately and I have been getting some kick butt tags/siggies and I plan on sharing those on here too and I was thinking of doing a music video each day for my moods that I am in...so I will see about doing that and also doing a blog on the hot topics of the day/week etc....anything to get back into writing daily even if its a million times a day and keeping up with…
Summer blog - why I'm
not or shouldn't be a weekend warrior... I shouldn't be because ... hmm not sure! Hmm ok well this one is
challenging lol...what is the definition of a weekend warrior? Sometimes I am a
weekend warrior when we get up and go out and have a good morning out going to
garage sales or when we get up and decide to take a road trip. Or there are
sometimes when I just want to go out by myself and blast the music in my vehicle
and drive an hour to see a friend or whatever..so yea sometimes I guess I have
been a weekend warrior..I like getting out and going on the weekend since there
isn't any time during the week to go and do much with work and school
Summer Blog Challenge -
what is your favorite article of clothing? My short shorts that I
call my booty shorts lol..they are nice relaxing short shorts that I only wear
in the comfort of my own house and they aren't really that bad..they cover my
butt..its not hanging out or anything and they are comfortable and here lately
in this 105 degree weather I have been wearing the few pairs of them that I have
out!! Its about the only
thing that I can stand to wear in the heat. I only wear jeans when I go out and
that hasn't been to often here lately. Its too hot to get out and go anywhere
its really frustrating being home most of the week but its just absolutely
miserable getting out in it!
Blog Dare - What my
Friday night use to look like... I never really went out and had fun or did anything on my Friday nights so being a mom for 19 1/2 years now the same thing every week...doesn't really bother me. My Friday night for
years has been the same thing...staying home with the kids and spending time
with them. When they were younger having a movie night and as they got older
that changed to having a singing night on the wii with guitar hero or rock band
or playing on the 360.Or any other game together on the wii. Its still a great
way to spend time with them even though they are no longer little kids and are
young men and a young woman. They still make me laugh and smile and we still
have a blast no matter what we do on our family night together.

Challenge - What helps get you through meltdowns?Well the first
thing is blogging, but if I don't feel like it then playing a game like Guild
Wars or Diablo 3 and if that still doesn't do the trick then its a nice strong
adult strawberry drink, works every time!

Sometimes you just have to say....Well there are
a lot of words and phrases that I could put in the blank for this one right
now....I think that I will say....sometimes I just have to say kiss my grits!
Yea that's a good one for me right now!Sometimes its
hard to be a hundred percent nice and positive thinking..which I am 3/4 of the
time but its hard to continue thinking that way when there are tough boulders in
the middle of the road and its blocking me getting by...just needing a bulldozer
to get all the crap out of my way right now!!
challenge for the 2nd day of Aug. What's one feature you would have to have in
your dream home?I would say
windows...big huge lots of light windows. I love windows especially if there is
a beautiful scenery outside to look at. I love windows and having them big and
always open to let the beautiful light in.

today is ... It's August already??I can't believe
that this year had sped by so fast!! On one hand I am glad to see it going by ..
It hasn't been the best year..definitely a very very rough start to this year
but hopefully it will get only better..although this month already is starting
out on the rough end of things yet again! I know that things are tough for a lot
of people and what I'm going through, there are others out there worse then me.
I am very thankful for what I have..just sometimes wondering when things are
going to look up because now this month has started out on a rough note....we
will see surely it will look up soon!
Challenge - 1st of Aug - homemade gift for someoneWell when the
kids were smaller we had come up with all kinds of ideas for things to be made
and gave for presents etc but now that they are teens, they only make cards and
that's only a few times a year! They aren't into artsy crafty things really.
Well my youngest son who is soon to be 14 is into drawing all kinds of things.
The boy can draw anything and everything!! He's a great artist!! I hope that he
can put his skills to use this upcoming school year.
I am looking so forward to the upcoming new month. Hopefully it will be a lot better then this one..Lots of ups and downs...Have a great new month and rest of the week. I am looking forward to some great things coming up soon for us.
I so love Guild Wars!! I haven't played the first one in awhile so I am installing it now. Trying to decide if I can pre-order the GW 2 and if I do then I get access to the game 3 days earlier then everyone else that goes to the stores and buys it! I think that is worth it...but its $60 so I am still trying to decide on that.I think that it will be worth it especially since its 3 days before everyone else!! That's pretty cool! That is really making it hard for me to say no!
I don't know what to do or to think about this years upcoming presidential election. Its a tough choice....I don't know much about any of the candidates...I guess I should do my research on them and see what they are wanting to do etc.Not to sure which way that will point me...I don't agree with Obama and this health care BS. I think that is overstepping our rights.Like me, I don't go to the doctor, I feel fine and don't see the need to. Every now and again maybe to the eye doctor but that's it so why should I have to pay for something that I'm not going to use?? That is just crazy!! I mean dang people are having a hard enough time right now and to put that extra expense on us is stupid in my opinion. If they would do something to where families could actually afford it even though in this day and age with the jobs still not coming up like they should I don't even think affordable health insurance is going to be worth it .. And what is considered afford…
I can't wait for Breaking Dawn part 2...little sad that its the last one..but I guess since Kristen decided to be stupid and cheat on Rob, I think that its insane that she would do that..but anyway she did it...and then has the nerve to say I love and respect him?? Really so you love him SO much and want to show him so much respect that you CHEAT on him?? With a director of the movie that you just did and not only that but he's a flipping Married man!!!! Do people just not give a crap anymore???? She's young and the guy is basically double her flipping age!! Really?? You love Rob so much that your going to cheat on him..pathetic! I would really hate to see what she would do if she didn't love and respect someone!!!!!!
I am ready for this month to be behind me..I am looking to the upcoming months. Can't believe that more then half the year is over now and the kids are getting ready to go back to school literally in a week and a half!! Where did the summer go?? Its crazy how fast this year is going by..its had its ups and down...
I hate it when I can't sleep and tonight is really really bad...Its almost 5am!! So I guess there is really no since in going to bed at all now or else I will sleep half of the day away which I can't do because of work class at 1pm..wonderful...its going to be "one of those days" where I want to take a nap but shouldn't ..ugh!
