  • I must say that Sunday was one of the best days I’ve had in a long time. Not because we did big things, or went places that I’ve always wanted to go, or because of anything other than I got to sleep all day long for as long as I wanted. I hate that I love these days. But I do. I haven’t had any nap days to speak of and I so needed to catch up. I’ve been pretty worn down. But after yesterday I feel more refreshed. I really count on my recovery days.
  • Today is my big jury duty debut. Yippee. I really don’t want to. I really hope I don’t get picked. I realize that’s not so patriotic of me but I just don’t have the time for the duty right now. Seriously. My job doesn’t allow me to use my PTO time until I’ve been there 90 days… and while they have jury duty pay, I don’t qualify for that either since I haven’t hit the 90 day mark. Basically, I have to do this without pay. I think I know what the case is too. It’s been on the news… it’s a big one. Apparently, there was a public official who did some bad things while she was in office. She was arrested and has already served federal time for the bad things. Now the state is after her essentially for the same charges. They said on the news the jury pool was going to be big and the selection process long. I suppose that’s because it will be hard finding people who don’t know about the case. Doesn’t sound good for me.
  • This morning, as I was waking up, I hear a televangelist telling people to plant a seed. He’s telling people that if they are poor, it doesn’t matter, if they have no money, it doesn’t matter… you can use a credit card and trust that God is going to take care of you. God will replenish the money you are spending on your credit card. Somehow, this doesn’t seem like the right thing to be telling people who are poor and struggling to care for their families. I believe in God and I believe that he will take care of us all. But I have a problem with a man on TV telling those who are living close to the edge to use credit to give him money. He has money. Shouldn’t he be sending it out to the people instead of asking for more? Just a thought…..
  • We watched Dirty Dancing last night. I like that movie. Always have. It’s cheesy, yes. I like the music and the dancing. And it always makes me think of my kiddo. That has always been one of her favorite movies, along with Grease.

 

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. Naps are magic except that when I have been running on empty for too long (as it sounds you have) I really need a coma more than a nap.

    The televangelist? Strikes me as a very bad man. And I agree, he should be spending his money not asking for more. Growl.

  2. My mom used to send money to Jim and Tammy Faye. I don’t know how many times we had a discussion about what I thought (that they were scammers and shitheads). Until they got busted, she totally believed they were honest and good Christians.

    And what’s the name of this televangelist? I would love to write him a letter. Although one could pick just about any one of them and it would probably be a criminal.

    I’m glad you had some time to recharge your batteries.

    Jury duty… I have some pretty serious anxiety issues and my doctor knows me well. She will write me an excuse when I need one. Hope you don’t get stuck with this one.

  3. I love a nap! I think if more people napped the world would be a better place. šŸ™‚

    That televangelist is going to have to stand in front of God one day and have to explain himself. I don’t think God is going to be very pleased. Likely, very angry. He is doing the complete opposite of what we have been commanded to do. I realize money is needed to carry out different ministries but they way this televangelist is going about it is very wrong.

    • That’s exactly what I was thinking! I just don’t understand some people. Mostly those who prey on the weak. This guy is on just about every morning asking people to send in money using credit cards even if they have no money to send. And don’t you know there are a bunch of folks doing just that…and then they may not have food to eat or shelter or other basic needs but the televangelist is rolling high. Makes me so angry.
