I am sitting here in my living room with my daughter while she does homework. TV is off. Stereo is on. What she likes touches me. She pays attention to the lyrics. I can tell she has a good soul. She is so amazing. I love her more than anything in this entire universe. She’s so pretty and I love her so much that it hurts sometimes. I tear up when I think of how wonderful she is. She’s growing up too fast for me. I want more time with her. Time is the one thing we cannot get back. We need to use it wisely and take care of ourselves so that we can maximize our time with people we love. <——— This is very important.
I love you so much Elsa. You are the love of my life sweetheart. I will always love you, no matter what. I will not judge you. I will always forgive you. I will always help you when you need help. After my body dies (of natural causes….nothing is planned folks), I will always be with you. My soul will be by your side always. Stay Beautiful my love.
The last month has been very trying. My mother-in-law has been in the MICU, and a week ago we didn’t think she would make it. We were called in to have “the talk” with the doctors. It sucked bad. I love mymother-in-law so much. She’s like a second mom to me. Thanks to God we have been seeing her make small improvements. Not really in a celebration mood yet, but we are being cautious. We hope and pray that she keeps getting better and is then able to go to rehab and come home. She has/had (not sure yet) Multiple Myeloma.
I’m so tired of cancer. I truly hope that the entire cancer support system is not a racket….but a lot of me thinks that it is. I feel like if we had a cure for cancer thousands and thousands of people would be out of a job and many drug companies and hospitals would go out of business and for that reason a cure is being suppressed. That would piss me off huge considering how many people die of cancer trying to “fix” it with chemo and radiation treatment. All I can hope is that God gives my mother-in-law some more life to live and it’s a happy life up to the end.
After seeing what she has gone through, I hope that when it’s my time to go, I go quickly. I would prefer to die in a car accident or from a heart attack or die in my sleep. I don’t want to be in a bed in an ICU for weeks and weeks.
Death comes and goes every day. We don’t think about it until it walks close to us or someone we love. It’s a big deal. It just makes you realize that most days what you are “concerned” about or “need” to get done, is probably no big deal. We need to slow down and spend time with our family and friends; people we love. The other shit can wait. Be happy with what you have. Most of us have enough stuff….and should probably share with folks who don’t.
Edit: – A month after I typed the post above my mother-in-law died. So damn sad. I miss her greatly.
This shit is getting ridiculous folks. Somebody knows something about this flight and is keeping it “hush hush” due to some bullshit political reason. You cannot tell me that China, Vietnam, India, and Australia (along with some other nations) would not have kept track of aircraft within a few hundred miles of their borders? Along with that, the US Military has bases all over the place over there. I would imagine at Diego Garcia (a military base in the middle of the Indian Ocean) they know what happened to that Boeing 777. Who is not talking…and why are they not talking?
Funny that the NSA and Google probably know where I am at during the day, at any given time but we can’t find a huge passenger jet. I feel like something is going on with this flight. My gut instinct is that it didn’t crash. My gut says that it turned all of the transponders off and landed at a remote runway, military or otherwise. It was hi-jacked. I think in a day and age where we have thousands of satellites and cameras all over the globe that we should know where a commercial aircraft is, even if it “crashed”.
I don’t think that flight 93 “crashed”. I think it was shot down so it wouldn’t hit the White House. I don’t think that flight MH370 “crashed” either. I think it is on the ground some where with survivors and someone will be asking for ransom soon. I hope this is actually true. Better to have 239 people alive than dead.
People are missing it. I don’t think they have any idea that they are missing it either. Increasingly, I see people riding in the passenger seat of cars and they are looking down. They have that look; you know, that look that people only get when they are looking at their damn phone. It looks rediculous You look like a moron when you’re looking down at your phone. Even when I look down at my phone I look like a moron. Smart phones have made people dumb. Instead of people enjoying the outside world when they are actually outside, in a car or otherwise, they are looking at their damn phone. What a complete waste.
I understand the convenience of having a smart phone and being able to use it, especially when you’re not the driver of a car. The thing is, it is only a convenience. I highly doubt that anyone is ever doing anything where they are texting or typing something that is an emergency. Seriously. When stuff is an emergency people use their phone as a phone and hold it up to their face and talk.
I can remember when you didn’t have a choice of what to do. The only thing to do was look out the window. If you didn’t want to look out the window you had to bring a magazine or a crossword puzzle or something. I just don’t get what is so important that people need to see what is on Facebook or Twitter or otherwise. I don’t understand why they have to be available all the time or why they have to text all the time or update Facebook with their location or other dumb stuff. Now, I do use Facebook and Twitter and I like both sites very much. I however view them as something fun to do in my spare time; not something that I always have to be doing.
I just think that people need to go outside and “be outside”. They need to be in it. There is so much beauty that is lost because people refuse to take it in. Instead, they spend time playing with their devices.
I should state that I do own an iPhone 5 and that I have had a smart phone for the last two years. I simply choose to not let the phone rule my life and everything that I do.
Lose the phone. Spend your time outside, truly outside.
So, something I’ve been wondering as of late; do radio advertisements even work? I don’t think they do. I often drive 45 minutes each way to and from work and I alternate between 2 or 3 stations. If I’m listening to a talk radio show like “The Alan Cox Show” and he goes to a commercial break, I switch back to NPR. If I’m listening to NPR and they go to break, I switch over to Alan Cox. If they are both on a commercial break at the same time (this rarely happens) I switch over to an alternate radio station. Sometimes I may listen to a song or two on the “third” station before I go back to NPR or Alan Cox. So, I never hear these commercials. I cannot believe that I would be the only person to do this. I can guarantee that tons of other people do this. Who the heck actually hears the commercials?
I would bet if there was a way to do an accurate study the advertisement/marketing folks would be blown away by how many of their ads are NEVER heard. This makes me laugh to an extent because when I do actually hear a commercial (rare) it sucks. I mean it sucks so bad that I think a 14 year old kid could have come up with a better commercial.
I’d be curious to see what other folks think about ads/commercials on the radio and if they really work.
