The military action taking place in Iraq....well here goes! I am against our occupation of that country. I was opposed to it well before the 2000th life was lost in this battle of who has the biggest dick... I was against it before my brother's best friend joined the marines and was shipped over there..I was against it before some of my oldest family friends were shipped out. And I am against it now. I am also against just about everything else that has been going on in our local politics...Our governor's policies on education leave a horrid taste in my mouth. I also abhor her taxing strategy....The smokers of the world will soon suffer enough on their own accord, I don't think they need to be taxed to death as well... And if anyone can tell me where the hell the money from the lottery is going, I would be interested to know....If all these HUGE jackpots are being given away, why do most of the schools around here suffer from yearly budget cuts and lay offs? I guess I am just not smart enough to understand that one.
And with that, I think I will step off my soapbox for the time being...thanks for listening..I feel much better now...
I usually don't so things like this, but I think its a worthwhile cause...I have sent most of my friends an invitation to this party...but if you haven't gotten your invite yet....go here and SPEND SPEND SPEND! She's got lots of great stuff, and shipping is free...and mention my name so I can get free stuff that I might share with you, if you are nice to me...
In other news, there is no other news...I am going to Walkerville for a basketball game tonight, I am going to support my man....
Kelly just pointed out to me that I seem like I am working all the time. No, that is the only excitement I have in my life. And I do enjoy my job....however, this has prompted me to write about something else. I have started seeing a new doctor. Warren and I are trying to have a baby with earnest now.. Hopefully I will have some good news soon-- If something doesn't happen soon, we are thinking about adoption....I guess we'll cross that bridge when we get there. Speaking of Kelly..she and Chris are do to have their second boy in November....Congrats girl!
I went golfing again--PAR!!! (on one hole) But still so much fun!!! I can't wait for(e) spring! So I can go more often. One of these days I am going to go with my dad..I am sure it will be big fun!
The basketball season is almost OVER! and then we get a week off before the boys start. YIPEE! I can hardly contain myself!
Mom's doing fine--her stress test came back good, and they don't know yet what was causing her pain and trouble breathing, but she hasn't had any other attacks so far...Which is great!
Well, I almost forgot..I finally replaced my zapped computer....I am back -- baby!
Well, I don't know where to start...my mom was in the hospital last night. They took her to the ER from work, and they kept her overnight for observation. They gave her a stress test this morning and everything went well, so they sent her home. They will be doing an upper GI in the coming days, so we will all know more soon. They think her pains have something to do with her surgery (gastric bypass) but we will find out for sure soon enough.
Rhonda Holm had a baby boy...on August 17th. I found out about it from the birth announcements in the Manistee News Advocate. She's still with Troy and is living in Indiana with him. I don't know anything else about her life, I thought that she was finishing nursing school...evidently she's having a family too.
Work is great..I am getting closer to full time every day....Hopefully soon! Keep your fingers crossed! In other family news, Eric is having his tonsils out next month....He's having quite a hard time right now, they're all swollen and irritated...So he's pretty much out of commission right now. He's still seeing Jasmine..and he's taking classes at WSCC for corrections-at this rate he'll be done in about 5 years. He's only taking one class at a time. Well, at least he is going!
My grandparents are leaving for Florida soon--they stay down there longer and longer every year. One of these times, we're going to go down and stay with them for a while. They've just finished adding on another room so they can have guests over night, so we will have to take them up on their offer sometime soon. Warren and I both really hate SNOW!
Oh--I went golfing the other day to try out some of the tips my dad gave me...My score wasn't all that great over all, but I did have PAR on one hole--and that is amazing in and of itself!
