Chaos is the new relaxed

I've been so busy I don't know whether to scratch my watch or wind my butt.  Sheesh I wish I'd really come up with that line.

Between 3 jobs, 3 kids, a house, a marriage, and volunteer work I barely have time to compose a decent post.  The fact that I share the computer with the rest of the family doesn't help.  Why can't they all quit talking to me and let me blog/facebook/nap in peace?  They are always wanting selfish things like dinner, rides to work, homework help, love and attention  . . . .

Know what?  Poverty is slap out exhausting!!  Scrapping together change for gasoline, or hanging on the phone with the insurance company takes time.  Rich snots don't need spa days! Poor working parents do.

Been thinking a lot about the state of American society.  Is the GOP really convinced that we voters have it so good that we can give up social programs, first responders, teachers, etc?  Their cruelty isn't even masked behind the "compassionate conservative" anymore.  Poor?  Ah it's all your own fault.  Unemployed? Oh you just don't WANT to work.  Never mind that the vast majority of folks visiting food banks have 2 or more jobs.

Anyway, I'm still reading all of you, just don't always have time to comment.
Love and kisses!!

I love that line. Hope you squeeze a nap in there before your party!

I've been winding my butt for years. Maybe that is why my watch never runs?

I bet your kids are going to be much more equipped to make it in the world today than those of the "rich snots." They will be able to have "well, we were so poor that we had to ....." conversations some day. Just remember, those "rich snots" are also footing 70% of the bill for all those social programs so don't be so disdainful towards them.

As for the butt winding that is something our cats always do before they pounce. Hopefully, you are pouncing upon the time to do what you need to take care of yourself as well as everyone else.

I hear you. What with the stuff that's going on for me right now, I may not be able to see you this weekend. I'll probably know more by the end of the week and get back to you. I'd love to meet you in person if I can swing it.
