Today's Mood: Hopeful!

Hi all! I'm just sitting, enjoying my day off and spending time with Spud, before I go clean our wreck of house. First, Woo Scott Brown for winning the Mass. Senate seat. This is one step in the direction of the government actually listening to what the PEOPLE want. Contrary to what certain people who are in power think, this country was founded on freedom and liberty. That does not mean making decisions and forcing through bills because YOU think you know what the PEOPLE WANT. Clearly, Demos, you don't. The President's job approval rating is down the tubes, and all I have to say is thankfully people are recognizing that this is not the direction they wanted their country to go. But I say to all of you, that is what happens when people vote based off of what their friends say, what the news says, and what makes you 'cool'. Do you own research and stand behind your own decisions. That is my rant...

On a second note, Congratulations to my pseudo in-laws, Zach and Erin! They have just purchased their first home together! Luckily, it's about 10 blocks North of Stephen and I, so we are looking forward to having family so close! Plus the dogs love hanging out together!! This weekend we will be helping them move and get everything settled. Sometimes I feel like we are still getting settled! Anyways, congrats you two! Enjoy it!

New Year, New Goals!

Hi Everyone,
Obviously its been a long time since I have posted. Stephen and I have been busy with fixing up the house in small doses, all while working and trying to make decisions based on the fate of my store. Since the government is deciding to take their sweet ass time (what?? shocker right?) 90 + Team Members lives are hanging by a thread, not that they actually care. So in dealing with the stresses with that, the house, the dog, and paying our bills...hadn't left much time for writing!

As it's a new year, I'm turning over a new leaf. This will of course include updates about what's new with our little family, but its also going to be my place to vent, scream, yell, and bitch about whatever I feel is getting to me or whats going on around myself. I'm sure this is an open invitation for people to get upset, hurt, pissed off by what i say, so i'm saying this once: If you don't like it, don't read it. I'm not looking to argue with anyone about any topic, i just want to be able to vent. so please respect that. Thanks!!!

First, We'll start tomorrow after we see who wins the Massachusetts Senate Seat!!!
