Once again, I was sucked into a whirling vortex of activity that kept me from the internet and, more importantly, from my long suffering blog.
In all fairness, I’ve been consumed with critical activities that are geared towards improving the state of the world, stimulating the U.S. economy, providing affordable and adequate medical care and education for children everywhere and…I have this election that I need to guide toward the conclusion that will most benefit our country. As you can see, I’ve had a lot on my plate.
Alright, that’s all bullshit. I really just got behind on a ton of stuff and rather than deal with it like a grown up and double my efforts, I took the “screw it, I just won’t do anything” route. So, now I’m crawling out of that hole and determined to never sink into it again…this year anyway.
In addition to being behind on things, I had one day two weeks ago when two crappy things happened within hours of each other and my shit just came down around me. The first had to do with The Oldest and some stuff that’s been going on at school. The second was related to the stay-at-home job that’s been bleeding me dry taking a lot of my time. What I learned from that event (the work one, that is) is that you can bend over backwards for some people, go out of your way to meet their needs and to ease things for them and that there are still bitter, deceitful, malignant personalities who will f*ck you the minute you reach across the desk for a pencil. All I can say to the person who wronged me is that I firmly believe that karma is diabolical bitch. I can’t wait to hear how this comes around on you…and believe me, I have ears out there!
Now, what other things have I done to contribute to the betterment of the world?
I’ll need just a minute here…
Oh, yeah. I switched to an environmentally-friendly all-purpose cleaner. I haven’t actually used it yet, but when I do…saving the planet, baby!
Please, what do you expect from me? I’m no SuperMom. I get tired. I can’t cook a meal, clean the house, do the laundry and help with homework all in one week! I have to prioritize and, quite frankly, the homework is the only hope I have for getting these boys out of my house someday! So, I’m not making HUGE contributions. At least my kids will be able to endorse their own unemployment checks someday! And, for the record, I am teaching them how to vote, using a variety of ballot formats so they can TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR HOW THEIR VOTE IS CAST!!! (and that will be my last political comment of the day)
