Rawr. A rant.

So many facebook posts are about "faith in humanity restored" and feature an old person or someone with special needs. Why is it news when we are kind? Why are we shocked? Why do we ask for congratulations for treating humans like humans? Yes, it's great that you did something compassionate, but I wish that it were the norm, not a news-worthy exception.

I am a part time employee but I wear the weight of the shop  I drove to another town today to get a copy of an old paper. How did I get myself into this??? This guy came to pick up his order, it wasn't right, so this new girl came to get me...Poor guy looked so sad, before I knew it I was promising a fix I couldn't deliver. Coworker "fixed" it, but when I walked in Monday I just...



I just realized why I don't blog anymore...MY LIFE IS LAME!

Perfect weather for it...


I wrote this as though I hadn't heard the results. I think it would be just as relevant if things had gone another way...


It's time to build a campfire hold hands, and sing a little kumbaya.

If your candidate won, celebrate. Be grateful. But be gracious.
To continue to argue your point or insult the other candidate/party is hurting our nation by keeping us divided and angry.
It's time to heal, to cooperate, to be kind.

Parents, you are setting an example for your children. The jokes, the mocking, the memes...we are saying it's ok to be a bully or to laugh at jokes at someone else's expense. I am not innocent in this.

Christians, we should be the first to act with grace and humility, the first to love our enemies. This is the time to let your words and actions be your witness.

Debt versus Death, I choose the latter

ECT (electroconvulsive therapy) and TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) couldn't fix me. Throw in some kidney failure and voila! I'm in so much debt and still would rather not be alive.
I'm getting all these bills and calls and my first reaction is "well if I died this wouldn't be a problem."
Unfortunately that isn't an option so I'm just going to hide and cry and probably cut myself.
