The Right to Bear Arms

This is an article written on a blog called Jack of All Spades. Here is a snippit – but I suggest you read the rest on the original blog. Excellant article! When I share stuff like this on places like Facebook I open myself up to people who disagree with my (strong) feelings on gun control. On here – my blog – I feel better about not allowing someone to disagree – lol …

For as long as I can remember, the political officers of the United States have regularly misused tragedy for their own causes. This is in reality just human nature to make the best of a situation but the real issue arises when that person takes a very serious situation and pushes through an agenda on the backs of small children. I deeply regret the tragic events involving recent active shooters and wish a speedy recovery to all involved. I wish that the communities worst hit by these events can move past these events with strength. Life gives us lemons every day; I just don’t expect them to come in the form of an active shooter. What I do expect is that no matter the lemon, we can find a way to make lemonade.

Read the rest!

Disagree all you want – I don’t care. But I’m not debating this topic and I’m not going to “agree” with you.

If you don’t like guns, fine. You aren’t taking mine away. I’ll just be the one saving YOUR ass when the shit hits the fan. Don’t tell me that “they aren’t trying to take your legally acquired guns” – yes, “they” are. They might not be saying it NOW – but I strongly believe that this “gun control” ladder will come to that point.

This Explains a Lot

Got this from Tumblr. I always find my favorite things on there. Or Pinterest …

Oh gosh … the Disney Tarzan movie just came on the television … I’m so not interested …

Hey Macarena!

It’s Not Much – But it’s All Mine

So, I can finally cross something off my “bucket list” – learning to knit!

I decided the other day (after seeing my neighbor pick up her crochet hook for the first time in a long time) that I would grab my needles and try to – again – knit SOMETHING. Took a few videos on YouTube and a few times ripping stitches off the needles and trying again (five times actually) but I got it! Granted, it’s reversed and dropped in a few places and I’m not sure exactly what I’m going to end up with in the end – but it is further than I’ve ever gotten with a knitting project!

So, I’m super DUPER pleased with myself!

First – I started to sew again and now I’ve picked up knitting!

I also vacuumed and mopped two rooms today, took off my pantry doors and removed a shelf! Maybe I won’t need that lobotomy after all!

Lazy Dazy Day

I’ve been spending much of my time unpacking from our move, cleaning things and sorting things out that I need to get rid of. I’m tired. I have my period. I’m feeling rather BLAH today.

My two year old is bored. This doesn’t bode well for my plan of “sitting on my ass and being lazy.” It’s a glorious day out – maybe I should just bring her outside and plop myself into a lawn chair.

… and try not to die ………. bleh …

It’s an Up-Do Kinda Day

I don’t feel like taking a shower this morning. I took one yesterday and I’m feeling LAZY this morning. So, I am trying out some “hair powder” (fancy word for dry shampoo) that I got in a Birchbox a couple months ago. It’s called Lulu Organics Hair Powder
and I’ll be honest – it smells a bit “old lady” but we shall see.

I had to rub it into my hair and scalp. Then brush my hair.

I hate to brush my hair! Even my mama knows that! Ahh well … All for beauty right?

Oh and side note! Juliana is already in the tub because she took off her damn diaper some time last night! Her diaper was DRY this morning – but she was swimming in pee. Ugh … No more nightgowns until she knocks that shit off.
