Christmas Eve Eve

The day before the day before the big day.  It just doesn't feel like Christmas this year.  Lot's have gone on...things have changed.  And if you can believe it, we don't even have any snow!  (But trust me, that's a good thing!)

I'm hoping tonight I can sleep....and I do mean sleep!  Tomorrow has always been a special day for me.  And in my own special way, I'm still looking forward to it.  I'm just praying that tomorrow, things will click again...and Christmas will feel like, well you know, Christmas!

Can't Take, Don't Dish...

Today was a crazy day at work...lots of chaotic, worthless stress that seriously could have been avoided.  But I guess thats one of the things that guarantees job security! 

But here's my pet peeve of the day:  have you ever been around someone who DEFINITELY has an opinion and certainly doesn't mind sharing it with you?  Whether you ASKED FOR THEIR OPINION OR NOT?  And then the mind-numbing ranting goes on and on and on....

Yep, I had that today..over the phone no doubt!  And how this phone conversation ended up on 'just how great Obama really is' is absolutely beyond me.  Before I realized it, I was in a 15 minute conversation on just how Obama was the 'savior' and was going to 'fix' everything!  And this person CERTAINLY wanted him to be relected for another 4 years. 

I waited for that 'one special moment'.  I knew that the person I was talking to HAD to breathe sometime!  And then it happened...a mere moment of silence while the person on the other end of the telephone receiver was inhaling, about to share with me MORE of why our illustrious commander-in-chief needed another 4 more years. 

It was in that brief moment that I made my move.  I had SO MUCH I wanted to say, but I only said one small sentence.  Six words.  Six.  But it got my point across. 

"Well, I hope he doesn't win."

It wasn't sarcastic, although I could've unleashed the hounds of hell on that one!  It was simple...polite (yeah, go figure)...and even professional.

But this was all it took.  I could feel the heat from the other person screaming through the telephone! 

Their response:  "Well I figured.  Ya'll are all alike."

And then they hung on me!


Here's the deal...if you've got something to say, by all means say it.  But be man/woman enough to hear the other persons opinion, even if you disagree with them.  Simply put, if you can't take it, don't dish it out!

Back From The Past

There is rarely a day that goes by that I don't think about the blog, yet, it's been over two years since I've managed to sit down and contribute. I have failed. I have failed miserably! I love this blog. It was always so much fun for me...a sense of release...or relief whichever you like.
I'm going to do my best to re-establish myself on this blog. But it will be different this time. I'm in need of an outlet...a mind-dump if you will. And this blog will be perfect!
I'm apologizing now in advance of whatever I might put up here. I will be honest, for sure...and sometimes sarcastic. But I need a release. You, my readers are what makes this go 'round. I promise to simply be brutally honest as I can be!
In a word...I'm back! And I promise to be back with a vengence!
Spread the word...I'll see you soon!
