Apparently my last post irritated some people. But I won't apologize for my beliefs. The things that irritates me about the people that disagree is the fact that they won't just pleasantly disagree or even pass my blog on by. They say rude things against the beliefs I hold dear and try to get me to agree with them. They want me to tell them their transgressions are not sinful. I know that I have plenty to repent for and that is the key, owning up to the fact that you do wrong every single day!
I finally finished the study/homework/test portion of massage therapy school. It feels so fabulous to be done. For the next 6 weeks I will essentially be working for free. People still have to pay for their massage but I give the massage and the school receives the money. I do, however, receive tips! It makes me feel so good to have accomplished that goal. When I started school last September Charles and I both had the idea that my schooling would only be throughout the 2010/2011 school year and that it shouldn't be that bad. I have to say though, it has been one stressful year. My time in school made me realize everything I do as a mom and the amount of obligation placed on my shoulders and also what the members of my family expect of me. Days where leaving important homework assignments at home and mom running them to school for you were over. Days of Josh and Cody looking decent enough to go to school were put on hold this year. Charles could not have cared less what those kids looked like when he dropped them off every morning. My days of caring for that stuff was put on hold as well. I even bought ramen to give the kids for lunch! There isn't one nutritional thing in that $.20 pack of noodles but I'm not really caring this summer. Gone were the days of hot, delicious, nightly, homemade meals. Gone were the days of trying to be frugal and going from one grocery store to the next trying to save my family a dollar or 2. Gone were the days of a daily tidied house with washed and folded laundry. Of course the laundry was regularly folded even when I wasn't in school but it was worse while I was in school. Now I'm just looking forward to my 5 a.m. morning being finished.
Let's face it, though, folks....my MT accomplishments is not what brings to me to post on my blog today. I ain't that kind of gal! What brings me here today is the liberal fool that left a comment on my blog on May 9, 2011. There I was minding my own business...well sort of minding my own business. I logged into my blog to see what my sister's in law blog address was so I could see what she was doing to lose 6 pounds in 2 days. That's where I noticed I had 2 comments waiting to be moderated from the last blog posting I made. There sat the comment. The ironic thing was this person told me to get a life! My goodness, if I had more of a life right now I would explode. Now this person is writing a comment on my, a stranger to this person, blog. Not to mention by the time his/her comment came along the posting was 2 months old and they are telling me to get a life! The nerve. I wasn't even going to moderate the comment but as I sat and pondered my thoughts on it I realized this fool totally validated my rantings in that posting. My rantings of how offensive liberal douche bags get when you don't agree with them. Rantings of how they really aren't accepting of anyone unless others' opinions are inline with theirs. Maybe if some of these people would open a bible and read a verse or 2 they might learn something for their own good. Just because you feel that homosexuality is acceptable doesn't mean you are accepting and non-judgmental. To be accepting means you have to be accepting of everyone even when you disagree. I know gay people, for goodness sake, I'm a massage therapist. There are a lot of good gay people out there that do great things. That doesn't mean that I agree with a homosexual lifestyle. It's just like when my kids make bad decisions, I still love them and would die for them, but they still piss me off when they make a bad choice and I am always sad for their consequence of a bad decision.
This person tried to use a wide vocabulary while being insulting and it made me laugh. They used insular-dwelling or situated on an island, also parochial-limited or narrow outlook. Oh and also homophobic! Like I said, I'm a massage therapist, I have given and received massage from gays, lots and of times. Extremely gay people. I am not homophobic. Charles on the other hand is a different story but they weren't insulting him they were insulting me. Insulting someone they don't know anything about. Well, nothing other than the fact I am God fearing and believe we should follow the rules set forth by The One in charge. So, I don't really care what that person says about me. They can make fun of my beliefs but I'm not going to change them because I know who gets the last word. Good people have died standing for truth. Fools have been around since the beginning of time, I just wish they wouldn't post on my blog. Oh and the person's profile couldn't be accessed by uninvited guests... so that tells ya somethin'! I bet anything they were from California!
It's always the ones that whine the loudest that think their views are correct. Atheists complain about religion being in the schools and people hurry and yank prayer out of the schools. Atheism is a religion. So we're leaving religion in and pulling God out! They want to push their crap down our throats and make us and the rest of the population practice what they believe. People are outraged when lessons on homosexuality are taught in schools or when you see Bert and Ernie acting like a gay couple. The ones that are outraged are considered to be the ones doing the wrong thing and we're "parochial and insular". I just don't understand why we have to tolerate their belief system but when it comes to the people with morals we're ignored and our beliefs don't have to be taken into consideration. What about the ones that WANT prayer in school and the ones that still believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman. Obviously, even the majority of California agrees that marriage should be that way because they voted for prop 8 a few years ago.
I better get outta here before my blood pressure rises too much!
....bug the heck right out of me! Why is it that people were down right outraged when a grocery store in Arkansas wanted to cover up a picture of a homosexual couple having proudly just adopted a baby but nobody seems to be that outraged about those Westboro Baptist fools protesting at soldiers' funerals. Why is that ok but upholding Christian values is taboo. What is even more maddening is that grocery store gave into the media hype. They should have told those liberal idiots to kiss it where the sun don't shine. We're gonna keep it covered! I am sick to death of people being scare to do the right thing these days because it might "offend" someone. Liberals want to defend their freedom of speech but what about the right to bear arms amendment? They are all for that constitution when it may benefit their cause but when it stands against their platform they want to change it. I am sorry to inform everyone of this...but...this country was founded upon Christian principles. God inspired those men! I am sorry but homosexuality is NOT a Christian act. It is morally wrong! It is sinful in the eyes of God. Everyone should be thanking that same God for choosing them to be a part of this country and stop trying to undo the goodness that this country started with.
Those Westboro fools are protesting at funerals of the very men and women that gave their dumb a--es the right to do that. The ruling in the Supreme Court claims to defend our first amendment but what those people want to do has nothing to do with free speech. The Supreme Court is condoning hate speech. How many times has the ACLU stepped in to help the dumbest of causes? Where are they now? Let those idiots say what they want when they want but don't allow it at a service member's funeral or anyone's funeral for that matter. Where the hell is our next Ronald Reagan?
I really do believe there are a lot of people out there still that have values and morals and want to uphold the rights and privileges we've started with. I think it's just that the far left douche bags are the squeaky wheels that always get the grease.
While I'm on the topic of the screwed up government, let's talk about the welfare system. You don't see single mothers of small children filling up the projects. Nope. Drive through a set of them. You'll see black people that have no desire to work or become educated but want to sit around and let our tax dollars pay their way. I'm not a racist, I'm a fact teller! It seems that someone along the way should come up with the idea of a time line for welfare. We'll help you out for this amount of time and then it will be up to you to support yourself and your family. Some people consider the welfare system helping out the needy and I'm SURE there are cases where people truly do need it but I do not think that is the rule. I'm sick of it!
It seems that the people that scream the loudest to protect the amendments they find so dear are the ones who have not done a darn thing to protect it! I guess that's why they think they get to pick and choose which rights need to stay and which ones need to go. There will come a time when the people with morals and values will have to defend what was given to us. I hope we win it!
God Bless the USA! And all those that serve to protect it!
It's been forever since I posted on this thing. I almost forgot I had a blog! We've been up to our eyeballs with busy-ness. When I say busy I really do mean busy, not just the busy some people use when they want to appear as if they do something important. I started massage therapy school in September and go until the end of June. Charles decided since I wasn't going to be home during his lunch hour anymore he may as well go ahead and finish his degree and get that done once and for all. He's been going to school like a crazy man. We're only in our 30's, we're figuring out what we want to do when we grow up. Slow and steady wins the race, right?!
Charles coached Josh's soccer team this year and they actually turned out to be a pretty good team. When the season started we had some questionable players on the team but they had all learned how to play soccer by the end of the season. Charlie and Ryan's team made it to the championship game and ended up losing 4-2. It was a frustrating game. Not to brag, but all of my kids are magnificent soccer players and it is a little irritating to see big ol' kids out there twiddling the ball and not putting it in the goal. If you haven't played soccer by the time you're 14, now is not the time to "try" it out. It is a very fast paced game with lots of running, so if you're chubby, try something else, like....knitting or golf.
I started a food co-op, back in August, with a good friend of mine. I like doing it except for when the times comes to actually get out there and do it! It really is a pain in the butt, however, I always feel good once it's done. Lots of people use the co-op as their only source for fruits and veggies. Besides it is only every other week and my family helps me a ton with it!
Christmas was sensational! It was nice for all of us to get a 2 week break with no responsibilities. We slept late, played the wii for hours at a time and ate like pigs. Not the most spiritual thing to do, I know, but we did have a great time. I must put a plug in for Charlie, who did not partake in our idolatry. He was putting an irrigation system in for some guy from church.
Massage therapy school is 4 days a week. I drive to Tucson for those 4 days. It is a 75 minute drive there and back. I wake at 5 a.m. every morning and I am not a morning person. I do love school though. I didn't think I would after all those years out of high school but it is very different learning as an adult. Now before you go thinking "it's only massage therapy school" I will have you know it is quite hard. Anatomy and physiology were a killer. I had to study my butt off and I will add that I've had the highest grade in the class for the last 5, maybe 6 classes!
I forgot to consider I would have to work close with people that annoy me. For 15 years I have worked in my home with people that annoy me but I love them dearly and would die for all of them. I can't say the same thing for a percentage of the people in my class. They annoy me but there is not one person I would consider dying for! I guess I should have known there was going to be a certain number of homosexual men having a desire to be massage therapists. Here's my question about them.... if homosexuals are attracted to the same sex, why do they try so hard to look and act like the opposite sex? I don't care what your sexual preference is, but don't shove it down my throat.
Anyway, life is good for now. 2010 didn't start off so hot but it did end up well. Hope all my readers out there are doing fabulous. Heck, maybe you forgot about this blog altogether!
