Well, that’s real mature

It makes me sick that groups like this exist. I don’t care how you feel about Obama, to pray for his death is just wrong. I’m shocked and appalled that any of my Facebook friends would click the “like” button for this group. No matter his policies he is still the president of our country and should be respected, if not for his politics and his office, then at least for being a human being. Grow up people.

csp, shopping, ugh

Gettin snippy

I have anxiety.  And it really goes into full gear just before a big event or trip, which is ironic as I love to travel and entertain in our home.  I get especially anxious if I feel like I don’t have enough time to prepare for said event or trip.  My to do list is shrinking, but I keep thinking of new items that get added every day.  And there are a couple things I can’t locate that need to go with us on the trip.  I know they are in this house somewhere, just hiding from me.

So when I get anxious I can get a little snippy.  And it all came to a head today when I got my hair done.  I won’t torture you with a pic because it will really only torture me.  I tried a new girl today on a friend’s recommendation.  I told her what I wanted and what my problems were.  My last girl had turned my hair white with brown stripes.  I used to be blonde!  Well now…now I’m dark brown with red!  I almost cried when she spun me around.  I should have demanded she fix me right then but I couldn’t talk or I would have cried so I just got out of there.  I’m going back on Friday to get it fixed but that is REALLY CUTTING IT CLOSE and I just don’t have the time to be sitting in a salon for another 3 hours!  Waaaaaah!  We leave on Saturday!

In my time of annoyance other things are really getting on my nerves.  I’m going to vent about them right here because this is my blog and America and it will make me feel better.  Disclaimer:  I am in no way perfect.  I know this.  No need to remind me. Continue reading “Gettin snippy”


If you can’t get it on CNN at least you can get it here

Why this isn’t national news is beyond me.  The Charlotte area is in the midst of a severe gas crisis.  We are literally out of gas.  I live in a small town just outside of Charlotte and my town has been out of gas for weeks.  Let me just tell you what happened to me yesterday.  So I took Jorge (my RAV4) out to get gas as it was low and CSP was painting the dining room.  CSP drives Jorge to work and leaves me the truck since Jorge is so much better on gas.  My gas light came on not 2 miles into my journey.  I would have gotten gas on the way home from my Mom’s house on Monday but there was none to be found.  I had to go to 9 (NINE) gas stations before I could find gas.  I called CSP every few minutes to let him know where I was just in case I ran out of gas and had to sit on the side of the road.  Then finally, FINALLY, I found gas.  Then I had to wait in line for 45 minutes.  While in line I witnessed people hanging out of their car windows yelling at each other for breaking in line.  All the ginormous SUVs with their ginormous tanks, I just wanted to smack those drivers.  Save some for us little guys!  People are camping out overnight on gas delivery days.  It’s just nuts here, and not looking to get better.

We’re being fed a bunch of hooey about how it’s all because of the hurricanes.  People, I’ve lived in the SE all my life and this gas situation only just started with Katrina.  I’m not sure what the problem really is, but it HAS to get fixed.  People aren’t able to go to their jobs.  It’s insane!  Why we aren’t all driving around with solar panels on the roofs of our cars is beyond me.  I don’t get political on my blog much, but this is too much to ignore.  Since when did we have to plan out gas getting trips?  Allocating at least an hour?  I will never take gas for granted again.
