My dad pointed out recently that I haven't been blogging much lately and since I'm his favorite blogger he finds that very disappointing. I must confess I've been in something of a bloggy slump. Do you ever just have so many things running around in your brain that you can't form coherent thoughts? That's me. So I'm going to set some of that stuff free by dumping it on you, my bloggy buddies. Here goes...

  • I am completely freaked out by all the Marxist/Mao-revering/anti-capitalists in the Obama administration.
  • At night, when I can't sleep, I worry about the Fed's monetary policies and the falling value of the dollar.
  • There's a pervy kid at my daughter's middle school that is really making her uncomfortable but it seems like no one at school believes her. She's strong and she'll be fine but it makes me wonder if this is a sign that I really do need to homeschool next year. Or would that be running away from our problems?
  • If I do homeschool her, how will that affect her socially? What about athletics? Will she miss Prom, Homecoming, Graduation or are those things even important? Will she be prepared for college? Can I really do this?
  • I'm the cash manager of sorts at work and yesterday when I called the bank to order change they told me they were out. Of ones. And won't have any more until Tuesday. Really? The bank is out of cash? Huh.
  • My family is gone this weekend to the farm because tomorrow is Youth Hunt in these here parts. I. am. so. happy. For them, of course. They love to hunt. I'll just have to suffer through the loneliness and having the remote all to myself and not having to prepare meals and not feeling guilty for laying in bed reading blogs all day instead of doing laundry.
  • I have lot of tasks to do that I've been putting off for a long time. Not big stuff but I just can't make myself do them.
  • I don't feel like myself these days. Uncomfortable in my own skin. Not sad. Not happy. Just...brittle. And burdened.
  • Global warming hysteria makes me CRAZY.
  • Glenn Beck had an emergency appendectomy this week and I miss him.
  • My baby girl is growing up and I'm not quite sure what to do with her right now. She's so different from her big sister, who is an open book. She's quiet and private, like me. I'm not even sure I really know her.
  • I'm beginning to feel a little festive about the upcoming holidays.
  • Right now I'm into comfort food and nesting. I think I just feel like I need to hunker down with the ones I love.
  • I'm terrified of the government takeover of health care. HUGE mistake. HUGE.

M'kay. That's enough.

I'll be back.

I miss your blogging, too. We think alike, though you are actually able to say it unlike me.

I'm in a blog slump, too. Too much to do, too much to think about it, unable to form a coherent thought that's not about my kid. So I stay silent.

HOW does a bank run out of ones??? I mean, really! What ding dong messed up there!

Obama scares me. Universal health care scares me. That's why I'm loving the new series "V". Those aliens sure do sounds a lot like Obama-esque socialists. With lizard skin hidden under their pretty faces. And they want to eat us. A lot of similarities there.

So jealous that you are a deer woods widow. I'm a history convention widow, but he doesn't take the kid with him. Maybe I need to encourage them to hunt???

Hope you survive Glen withdraws. Poor baby.

I can't comment on any of the political stuff in your post cuz I am politically challenged!! 'Nough said!!!! :)

My heart hurts where both of your girls are concerned!! Because you are my friend "IRL", I have come to love your girls dearly!! I will keep them and you in my prayers!!

As for your decision to homeschool or not to homeschool, I understand your struggle!! I am NO expert by any means, but I can tell you, with God's leading you will KNOW what decision to make when the time comes!! Trust me, I said I would NEVER do it, and here I am homeschooling away!! It took me 2 years to decide!! And I didn't look at it as running away from the problem, but being the solution to the problem!! There are stuggles and challenges, but the rewards far outweigh those!!

I am soooooo jealous that you get a whole weekend to yo'self!!! We should have got our bunkin' party on!! I think that would get us out of these funks we're in!!! Nothing like good ol' candy corn to get you out of a funk!! ;)

I love you dearly, friend!! Have a GREAT weekend!!!

oh girl, don't be saying things scare you b/c if they scare YOU then they QUADRUPLE scare husband wants to be in your "club" b/c I can't hang w/ the political talk...

Yes, when called to homeschool, you'll know what to do and the questions will be answered...

I love what you said about "hunkering down w/ the ones you love"...such a great, safe, happy place to be.

Can't wait til I get to AR one of these days so I can give you a big 'ol hug myself and we can sit and chat...

Oh.My.Darling. Oh.My.Darling. Oh.My.Darling, Lisa-Loo.

You, my girl, cannot be talking scary politics. Or at least tell me if I'm supposed to be scared, too. Or if you're just being thinky about smart people stuff. What I'm trying to say is....I'll start worrying when you tell me, too, m'kay??? Until then...I'll let you lie awake and think about the dollar.

Or you could just take more Ambien.

Or we could just go back to Mississippi. And get tattoos.

Sounds super fun!!! :)

Love you.

(Oh..and I'm praying deeply and hard for your precious babies. I love those girls like they are my daughters and lift them up to Jesus daily.)

Your brain dump sounds so much like mine.

Almost every single line.

Except for the hunting because Mama doesn't do cold wet mornings shooting at Bambi. We apparently prefer hitting them with cars.

And the restless feeling is driving me batty. I think it's because 40 is a month away.

Alison said...

Wow! How many different compartments in your brain were holding all this stuff??

Thought #1 - I have a feeling once your kiddo gets in HS next year, it will be a different world for her...a good different, hopefully. There are so many people up there, and so many different class choices, with so many different ages of kids in them, hopefully the problem will resolve itself. But - I don't have a middle schooler. I have a two year old and 6 month old. Those are just thoughts - pray for the Lord's guidance there.

#2. The bank running out of 1's? INSANE. I've never heard of that in my life.

#3. Obama gets worse and worse every day he's in charge of our country. When he travels to other countries and apologizes for us, I wonder what side he's really on. I just hope that we still have a free country in 3 more years.

I think I have had every thought you listed....and more and more realize how much Washingtons decisions affect us .......

I could echo this post almost to the T.

I hear ya.

If I had any profoundly wise words to help with these things I'd be saying them to myself...:)
