Many things had to come together just right for me to end up here in the purgatory known as "Blogger ville". I do not consider myself to be someone to be listened to, and growing up a middle-child in a non-communicating family did little to combat that. I am writing these thoughts down so I don't go outside my door and scream at the top of my lungs "What the ---- is the matter with you all!!!!" This way is much quieter, as my demeanor prefers.
I am young for a man (33) I think. Far from middle age and far removed from puberty. I have a wife, 3 children, 3 dogs, a mortgage, a 2ND mortgage, bills up to my elbows, thousands of dollars in exercise equipment that I don't use and a garage full of clutter that seems insurmountable. My wife would be saying that my time would be better served in that garage. Of course, I'm paraphrasing for "Get off of your lazy ass and do something!!" Luckily for this blogger she is off working, leaving me in charge of " The Kennedy's" (my children Bobby, Jack and Joey).
My wife is an amazing woman. Confident and beautiful. Her abilities match her conflicts as she is trapped between 2 worlds. The world she lives in and the worlds she wants to live in. She lives in a constant state of motion. Ever vigilant to react to the next crisis in our soap opera in suburbia. I believe God puts all of us on this earth with purpose. He places us where he does for two reasons. The first reason is for us to fill a purpose. The ever huge and popular "Reason I'm here". The gift that God blesses us with to fulfill our destiny. My wife has the amazing gift to repair and create all things. It doesn't matter what it is. She is truly amazing in this aspect. The other reason God puts us where we are, is that we are all lacking in one thing, and what ever that is, we are here to recognize it, understand it, and then overcome it. My Wife has no patience. That is why God brought her to me. I am here to teach her patience.
Now, to the things that have been pissing me off for a while. I'm tired of hearing about Global Warming or Global Climate Change and Earth Hour. Earth hour? Are you kidding me? Don't these people have anything better to do than organize a time where around the world, for one hour we all put ourselves back to the stone age. What if instead of doing that meaningless gesture, we (for one hour) all took a look at things we don't like about our country and came up with solutions to send to our congress or our representetives? If nothing else, could you imagine the floods of paper that these people would have to deal with?
Another thing that makes me crazy as long as we're on the subject of Government. Why do these idiots that we put in charge constantly find new ways to make themselves look like retards!! Here in AZ, we just had a bill shot down about creating a state drink. This was a guy that I voted for! I was on the freeway when I heard about it and I just wanted to drive my truck off the nearest bridge. Our state is already in the red big time. We need to make some tough decisions about programs to cut, and that was before President Bonehead decided to unload his excrement all over the constitution and cram this healthcare turd sandwich down our throats. So...on the eve of that colossal Turd Buffet, were all of the law makers just sitting around, when one of them stood up and said, "Hey boys, I know! Let's decide on a state drink." REALLY????? I'm going to ram my head in the wall for a while.
