So, my husband and men of my family have made it some kind of a tradition to go out Thanksgiving morning and shoot guns, blow stuff up, wreck old cars, etc. It's quite the display of redneck humor and fun (fun for them, humor for the rest of us). This year, however, looks like it will be a dud due to wet weather, but who knows? Anyhow, I wish y'all a happy Turkey day and hope that wherever you're at and whomever you are with, that you enjoy the time!

Express yourself...

So, I've spent enough time and wasted energy on others sites expressing my thoughts and opinions lately, and it has gotten me in trouble. So, I've decided to save my thoughts and opinions for those who can handle them, whether they agree with me or not, some people can actually handle not having me blow smoke up thier butts (metaphorically speaking of course). There are some things in my life that I just won't bend in, mainly my faith based belief system and that has lent me to some persecution from friends and foes in life....of course, I've never been popular so why start now. Anytime I have bent on these things, it has turned out to be a bad decision. Yes, this is a vent post...but I just want to put it out there that just because I choose to do things a certain way doesn't mean I'm just doing it because I'm not aware, or educated, or experienced, etc. I choose to live my life the way I do and believe the way I do for reasons that I have given much thought to and have had experiences to back up. Thank you very much!

The Tao of Poop

I'm reading this book right now and must say that it's a definate good read for moms. I find it funny and full of good ideas and wisdom to help us keep our sanity during the thick of things. Plus, the chapters are short and she shares some funny stories so it's entertaining too. If you get the chance, read it.
