Dumpster diving?

So Thanksgiving has passed. This year is going so fast! I see that the older that I get it seems like time goes by faster. Bryan and Venice went to his brother’s house for dinner and even though I had many great offers I decided to stay home and regroup. I caught up on some cleaning and went out to get a newspaper to see what the sales were but I knew that I had no ambition to go out shopping besides the fact that I am almost done with my Christmas shopping anyway. Totally off the subject! So I headed out carrying my dog in one hand and a trash bag and my planner in the other. Bryan is always the one to take out the trash and now I know why. I threw the trash bag into the dumpster and lost my grip on my planner! Not that I am too stupid to take out the trash I just usually have a million things I am taking with me. So there I am looking into a nearly empty dumpster, which makes it worse in a few ways , one now my planner which happens to be white. I got the planner on sale that is why I have a white one. Although Bryan says he likes it because “it looks like I skinned a person to get it”. Now it is sitting on the bottom of a large dumpster in which I do not want to guess the horrors that it is sitting on. I could not reach it and I could not just dive into the dumpster because it is too tall. So I run and get my husbands car and drive it up next to the dumpster planning/dreading to get on the hood of the car and jump into the dumpster from there. I look around in the car for any saving grace. I found my umbrella thinking oh I am saved I can just hook the curved handle around it and pull it up. I guess my husband neglected to tell me that at some point the handle had been broken off. With desperation setting in I took the handle-less umbrella and started to stab my planner. It started to open which could give me something better to stab but it also could get the horrible infectious black crap into the planner ruining the pages. But I have a little pocket on the outside that I was able to get the point of the umbrella into that pocket and drag the planner up the side of filth incrusted sides and up to my hand. I held it gingerly away from me and then carried it back into the house with the newspaper. Thank heavens for Clorox whips and I must say a lot of them! After that I had a nice relaxed time.

Christmas is coming and I am having a hard time wanting to do anything. This has been a hard year for me but I am trying to figure out how to just mentally to stay in a happy place and thinking about the good things that are happening. I think I have done all of my shopping but now I need to wrap and make sure I did not forget anyone.

My thoughts on Rocket…

So I have been thinking about it and Susie and I have been talking a lot about what Rocket will look like. But I have found the perfect image of what he will look like.


Happy Thanksgiving!

So my husband came across this video and I just thought it was great so I had to share it here. I got this from the Huffington Post:

Some videos you just have to see to believe. On Thursday, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin appeared in Wasilla in order to pardon a local turkey in anticipation of Thanksgiving. This proved to be a slightly absurd but ultimately unremarkable event. But what came next was positively surreal. After the pardon Palin proceeded to do an interview with a local TV station while the turkeys were being SLAUGHTERED in the background!! Seemingly oblivious to the gruesomeness going on over her shoulder, she carries on talking for over three minutes. Watch the video below to see for yourself. Be warned, it’s kind of gruesome.

Criminal action….why not me.

I am so upset and trying to not picture finding out who has broken into my car two times now and tearing them limb from limb and cause them so much pain they will be begging me to stop and then I would just shove the many glass pieces that are still all over my car into their eyes! I truly do not understand why this happens to some people and others don’t have the issue at all. I will say that if my husband would have made it outside fast enough to catch the perpetrator I think there may have been no stopping my husband. I will be moving at the end of my lease! I will not resign a lease here I have to admit that they have done everything they can to help but I will cannot deal with the idea of this happening again. I lived in the complex next door for five and a half years and never had a problem! I also have to worry that my husband could find a job in another state at almost any time after January when we will get the results for his last actuarial exam. So I don’t want to be in a lease. I hate to move! I just want to get my own house and settle in for years. Oh can’t the bad man stop?

Church and State.

I am a religious person. I have never stepped away from my belief in God or my religion. Now I have not been active in many years but I carry the beliefs with me. I believe that you can affiliate yourself with a church and have a few varying truths in your own heart. I also feel like there is a place for church and state.  My family and I have had many discussions about this. I think that people are so very confused about my take on the proposition 8 issue in California. I live in Utah and I am LDS now I am not “practicing” via going to church but other than that I still follow the beliefs. This being said I do not feel that it is right for any church to actively attempt to intervene in any form of legislature especially on a state level.  I think that this government has stepped over many boundaries I believe that most of the decisions should be decided and made on a state level. I also feel that when “the people” have made a vote that it should not be turned over. I am just saying that any state would be very upset if a corporation of any kind from out of state were to spend money and time to alter a vote.

Why I am crazy…

I was at my mother’s house with my sister and we were discussing (teasing) my mother about how much she babies her little dog Roxie. Now I always bring my dog Kairi up with me because she like for her dogs to exercise and my dog is younger so she plays with them. My dog usually gets the brunt of the dog’s playing. However this day my dog was the aggressor so what does my mom do…she picks up Roxie and puts her in my daughter’s high chair.  My sister and I at this point were laughing saying how that is nice her dog face rapes my dog all the time but if my dog gets a nip in my mom saves her. So my sister said “when that dog dies we are going to stuff it and after you die we will put it in the coffin with you in your shirt and just her head sticking out. “ I laughed so hard thinking about the reaction of people walking by to pay their respects and all of a sudden seeing a tiny dog head coming out of her shirt.

I love my family, we have such a sick sense of humor and the way we deal with stress or grief is to make horrible and tasteless jokes to deal with the emotions. I think it is so great because my husband is just the same. He was so happy when he was first hanging around me and my brother passed away a few years before so when someone would ask me “which brother” I would answer “the one who is alive”. My husband felt right at home. Being around my family is so much fun.

Now though talking about politics with my family is so much fun.  For the most part we all have the basic same beliefs but I don’t think that you could get them to believe it. We are a group of highly passionate people and have no problem with sharing our opinions. That makes for some political discussions that end in tears or someone leaving mad. We are over all a great group of crazies.
