I have had a rough day. I spent it running errands in 107 degree heat (but hey it’s a dry heat, which explains why instead of just merely sweating, it feels like my skin is going to peel off in sheets but I digress. Then I come home and all the kids are some kind of discombobulated. The Twins were just being mean and crabby and didn’t want to listen…then the baby was cranky but she went to nap for 3 hours so that worked out…but then the grandbaby was just being high maintenance. I wanted to post but it’s 9:30 PM and the kids are finally asleep….I wanted to post something but for the life of me my brain hurts and I can’t think of anything even remotely intelligent to share with the world….

So I Stumbled around and that I’d share them with y’all.

The Bards Tales-Name Generation.–> This appeals to me only because I love to write but hate coming up with names for characters.

—> OMG…I have to say this one is slightly off color, so if you are easily disgusted by slight toilet humor, you probably should pass on this one. But if you are warped like me, you will love it.

and this I found and it’s made me go..hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..

DefineNecessityremix Okay that’s about all I can handle now…my brain still hurts and now I’m nodding off.

Motherhood–Anthony Style, Take Two.

January 25, 2009

I told myself that I was going to leave the Casey/Caylee Anthony coverage alone…I had no intention of re-hashing  news reports, primarily because it is so heartbreaking and it is just….horrifying.

Then I read the latest this week regarding details of how Caylee was found, and how Grandfather George Anthony had attempted, or at least contemplated with a high degree of seriousness, suicide to be with his granddaughter.

Wow. 

I think the little detail that got to me the most was not that Caylee’s body was wrapped up in duct tape and then covered in a Winnie the Pooh blanket (that’s just mindboggling enough.)…What REALLY got to me was the presumed intentional placing of a heart shaped sticker on the duct tape.  What kind of warped message is there….

And then George Anthony sends suicidal text messages to his family saying that he wanted to be with Caylee…and the harsh, judgmental side of me says “that’s a little to little to late….why didn’t you acknowledge the evidence earlier and realize that your daughter is an exceedingly ill person who hurt your grandbaby.”  And the understanding compassionate side of me says “Don’t be like that…I couldn’t imagine thinking that ill of my child and there would be no reason to think that your daughter would hurt her child….”

What a Sucky situation all around.  I try to imagine that I am cynical enough about the world in general and the human condition that very little fazes me…unless it involves a child….This just stuns me.

Yes Virginia, it does snow in Tucson

This is a picture of the girls outside our house about 10 minutes ago, with their snowballs. My oldest daughter Nicole, took the pic and said that the snow is still falling hard and there should still be snow when I get home in about 2 hours…WOOT!

Absurd and appaling at the same time.

Okay, There are some that might find this appalling to think about on Christmas Eve, but I believe that this child and others in her position deserve some extra prayers their way.

I think what got to me the most was the Pledge that the Judge asked the “husband”…he didn’t order it by law. Just asked “pretty Please with sugar on top.”

As much I will enjoy today and tomorrow being with my family, there is a part of me that also realizes that for all the good in my life, there are challenges elsewhere for someone else. Complacency is never an option.
