On my way to Indiana

My paternal grandmother has passed away, so I am leaving today to go to Indiana, returning on Sunday. Send positive thoughts to my husband, who will be ALL.ALONE. with the kids until then.

Uh. Good question.

I told my DH that I want to go back to school, and he is like "why? you don't have to."

Both of my kids are in school from 8-3 every day. That is surely enough time to take a couple of classes, yes? It could take me a century to get an associates, but all I have is a Pharmacy tech license from California, and techs here in NC aren't even licensed and didn't even have to go to school like you do in CA, so they don't make shit. THey make like half of what I did back in CA, if even that.

Anyway, I guess I just want to have accomplished it. That and who knows. I love my husband, but I've seen things NOT last forever, and how would I support myself or me and the kids without some kind of education beyond high school?

Does that sound too pessimistic a reason? I know I just want it for myself, and he is not really saying NOT to, but I guess he asks a good question.

I DVR'd and watched the whole last season of The Hills and now that Noggin is airing it, I am watching the whole damned series. One day at a time.

Why? Why?

I don't understand...

How can a woman live with a man she cannot stand? Like several of my friends talk about their husbands like they are their cross to bear. I was pining away that DH will be gone for 5 days at the end of the month, and she was like "well gosh, I am always so glad when my DH is gone because then he's not undermining me constantly with the kids and complaining of what I made for dinner". I am always speechless when I hear stuff like this. Really, people live this way? I live for the moment my DH gets home. He is helpful with the kids and I cannot remember him ever complaining about dinner. If dinner is ready when he gets home, it's like he won the lottery.

Of course, my friends tell their husbands "well, Erin's husband would...." and I always cringe when they tell me that they said that. These guys probably want to burn him at the stake!

I guess I never realized that I had this special case or was "lucky" to have the DH I have. I don't consider it "luck" since I made that choice consciously and did have a choice.

It snowed at my house this am!

We get about one day of snow a year, well, more like a quarter of a day. It snowed here this am. So perty. If I can get my painkillers to kick in, I'll take the kids out in it, LOL

I really am starting to hate political discussions

...especially with people who haven't the first clue what they're talking about. It seems like everywhere you turn, there's some heated discussion about politics. So basically I need to go hide in a cave until December? Bah!

With people who have no damned idea what they are talking about. It makes me

I hereby vow not to get into political discussions with *anyone* from our local mommy site.

I just won't. I can't.

The thing is I don't really care at all about the candidate in question, but my GOD people...

Here are some highlights:

Who is Barack Obama?

Very interesting and something that should be considered in your
If you do not ever forward anything else, please forward this to all
your contacts...this is very scarey to think of what lies ahead of us
here in our own United States. ...better heed this and pray about it and share it.

We checked this out on ''. It is factual. Check for your self.

Who is Barack Obama?

Probable U. S. presidential candidate, Barack Hussein Obama was born
in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a black MUSLIM
from Nyangoma-Kogel, Kenya and Ann Dunham, a white ATHIEST from
Wichita, Kansas. ;
Obama's parents met at the University of Hawaii. When Obama was two
years old, his parents divorced. His father returned to Kenya. His
mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a RADICAL Muslim from Indo nesia. ?
When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocate to Indonesia. Obama
att ended a MUSLIM school in Jakarta. He also spent two years in a
Catholic school.

Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim. He is
quick to point out that, 'He was once a Muslim, but that he also
attended Catholic school.' Obama's political handlers are attempting to make it appear that he is not a radical.
Obama's introduction to Islam came via his father, and that this
influence was temporary at best. In reality, the senior Obama returned to Kenya soon after the divorce, and never again had any direct
influence over his sons education. Lolo Soetoro, the second husband of Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, introduced his stepson to Islam. Obama was enrolled in a Wahabi school in Jakarta. Wahabism is the RADICAL teaching that is followed by the Muslim
terrorists who are now waging Jihad against t he western world. Since
it is politically expedient to be a CHRISTIAN when seeking major
public office in the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has joined
the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim
background. ALSO, keep in mind that when he was sworn into office he DID NOT use the Holy Bible, but instead the K oran.

Barack Hussein Obama will NOT recite the Pledge of Allegience nor will he show any reverence for our flag. While others place their hands
over their hearts, Obama turns his back to the flag and slouches.
Let us all remain alert concerning Obama's expected presidential
The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the US from the inside out, what better way to start than at the highest level - through the
President of the United States, one of their own!!!!
did not plan to vote for him either. I don't think anyone that can't say the Pledge of Allegiance ( I have saw pictures of him during a pledge of allegiance on tv) or has any affiliation with the Muslim religion at any time in his life has any place running the country after 9/11. I don't think he would make it very long if he gets to be president either. JMO though.
Snopes says that the church welcomes white people, i just don't see it. I'm not going to be committed to a country that I have never been to or have any affliation with. Why do these AMERICANS that have probably never been to africa themselves that are born in AMERCIA seem to be more committed to that country than their own. Makes no sense to me. Sounds like this guy should go try to become president in a country in africa.
