And, hey, correct me if I'm wrong, but this looks an awful lot like JimmyB's (conservative uaw guy) dog...hmmmmm...wonder what he's having for Christmas dinner?
And this one, well, I'm not even worthy of putting words together to make a caption...
Well, this Christmas season is now looking up. *teehee*.
It's all because I had a Festivus miracle tonight!! You know a big part of the Festivus celebration is 'the airing of the grievances' of the year, right? Well, all kinds of 'em got aired tonight during wrapping of Tif's gifts (tifs gifs...haha)...but, it's gonna be a long year til next Festivus...'nuff said...
So...I'm totally done with getting everything ready and organized, as far as who's going where, and when...
The Midget football cheerleaders came over this afternoon, and they each gave me a little poinsettia, which was so sweet! I felt bad cuz I didn't have anything for them. Then they were out in the kitchen looking out the back window at something, and coming back in, I heard Aub open the freezer....so I yelled, "You can eat everything in there except my peppermint stick ice cream!" All I heard was giggles...
They did come in here & say they were kinda bored (teenagers are ALWAYS bored on Sundays...I was too! Til I got old enough to go get drunk on Sat night and had to stay in bed & recover the next day.). So Aub said she wanted to do my laundry (!), and maybe run the dishwasher. I told her no thanks to both, cuz neither one needed done, and then I told her to sit down, I was afraid she had a fever or bumped her head or something. She said no she didn't, she just wanted to do something. Then she got up and starting running my 'Swivel Sweeper'! I looked at the other one and said 'I should take a picture of her & send it to her mom, huh?' Because I totally remember those days of being a young teenager too....it was nothing but fun to clean...someone else's house, never your mom & dad's!
It was SO windy here today! It sounded like there were people upstairs walking around, banging on the walls! The girls were saying 'someone's up there!' I said no, that's just the wind, don't worry about it. Then there was a big gust of wind, and Aub said, 'I'll go check for ya, I think there is someone there'. I said, "Okay, if you insist. I'll be down here, ready to call 911 if you start screaming." Ha....she came back & said well, you're probably right...

...Oh, if it was only THAT EASY this year?? I kinda wish I could photoshop the Hitler pic into a Hitlery pic!! Honestly, the major Democrats are sounding more like the socialist party now....they seem to feel that they know how to spend your money better than you, and that is SO WRONG on SO MANY LEVELS!! You can't have a gun (for God's sake, you'll shoot your eye out!)...you can't smoke, you might get lung cancer....you can't sell transfat foods, someone might eat them and get fat...you have to post the calorie contents of each food in a fast food place right in front of the customers' faces, so that even if they don't want to see it, "I'll tell them!!". What is it about Democrats that makes them think people need to be 'taken care of' from cradle to grave? Some people think that's fair....WHAT?? What gives them the right to just coast along in life, not working or anything, just 'being taken care of'? Okay, I know that at the minute, I have not much friggin' right to say anything, I'm on disability for life for ms...but before that, I worked my ASS off, even if it was for minimum wage...I had a one-year old daughter to raise and take care of! So when I could tell that minimum wouldn't be enough, what did I do? Not quit and get welfare so I could stay home with my girl (and have more babies?). No...I took over another department and took a transfer so I would make more money. So I'd NEVER have to be sitting at home on welfare while I was healthy enough to work!
People say now "You can't raise a family on minimum wage now!" Excuse me! That is NOT what minimum wage jobs are FOR!! First of all, you should have a better job than that before you have a family to raise! Of course, there are unforeseen circumstances (like divorce...), but..and a lot of times you can work your way up into a good promotion...with hard WORK!
Second...you never COULD raise a family on minimum wage!! It was never supposed to be there for that! Isn't it supposed to be for teenagers who work part-time after school? Or anybody that works part-time?
I'll get to McCain, Huckabee, & Romney tomorrow...this was just a rant!

Ever look back on your life and know that you zigged when you shoulda zagged? *sigh*
So...now I'm 43...so old that my social security number begins with a zero..and all that crap...is it mandatory to feel like shit for a couple hours on every birthday past 40??
And that's really wrong to feel like that, cuz I really had a good birthday! Joe brought me the coolest lighthouse picture today, & made me a cool card from Wolf to Jacky, Tif knitted me a scarf that's gorgeous! And an ebay gift certificate, a Hello Kitty pajama set, a tv, other stuff that''s cool...and the very coolest thing....
Tif's bf took her to the winter wonderland at the Col zoo tonight (they had 3 million lights all over...very cool!), and he proposed to her there!! And, of course she said YES!! They came back here afterwards, and I don't think I've ever seen a bigger, happier, goofier smile on any guy's face in my life!! And his sister was there, hiding in the bushes videotaping the whole proposal!! She's gonna make dvd's for all of us for Christmas!
Maybe that's why I felt so crappy for a while...now I know the big "G-word" (as in grandma) is one step closer...I'm so scared of that!
"...I wanna go back. Back to the rocking horse...back to where it all began...T-t-t-take me back to the rocking horse. Back to the rocking horse...and start all over again..."
Hell, that song used to make me cry when I was 22...precognition, perhaps?
Anyway...Bro called me from Arizona tonight to tell me happy birthday. And I got to tell him and his wife happy 31st anniversary! They got married on my 12th birthday! That was SO cool! I remember Bro asking me before they scheduled it if I minded that, and I said, "NO~!! That'd be neat!!" I never understood why it would bother me!? And...Tif's bf...ok, fiance!...his mom & dad's anniversary is today, too!
Do you ever hear your grandma's voice in your head, saying a favorite quote? I do..."Too soon old, too late smart."
All right, gotta go...
