I love LOL Saints. I can't get enough. Funny saint/religious pics with comments, and not disrespectful either. I love that if you click "read more" you get a little background story on the saint and the art.
This is my favorite. I don't think I'll ever see one this good again.
I know St. Valentine's Day has passed, but I have a
First, I do not like V-Day. I believe it is a "Hallmark Holiday" complete with all the trimmings.
Next, I am so happy my husband thinks the same as me on this. I already have special days in my marriage, like my anniversary, births of my children, to celebrate the love we share. Not to mention that if I need to think of what we'd "get" each other......I've already gotten so much, and so has he. I have a house, beautiful children, a man who works so I can stay home and be with them. What more do I need?
Finally, our son has *GASP* been in public school. I
Pet peeve of mine: Misuse of the words past and passed.
Past = gone by or elapsed in time; beyond in space or position (the house just past the church)
Passed = having completed the act of passing; past tense of the verb "to pass"; pass, to move on or ahead in position or time (car #4 just passed car #6)
There is a sign off the interstate that gives directions to some business - "It's just passed the A&W". Really people.
My little babies are sleeping and napping at regular house. I don't know how I did it, but I did. Pat on the back for me.
Lent. This is my first official Lenten season as a Catholic. I am giving up cake. I made a 9x13 pan of Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Vanilla cake topped with their Creamy Home-Style Frosting. I frosted it at 9pm. My son had a piece and so did my husband. I also had a piece at that time. I got up in the middle of the night and had a piece, and I also had some for breakfast and lunch. The cake was gone by 2pm today. I need help. And my help is Jesus (meant in a humorous/serious way). I've got to give this up and I know I can do it for Him.
I am also rewarding myself with something to replace the cake - more prayer. I am going to integrate more prayer into our family life during Lent. I can't wait!!
I also have 2 more cake mixes to use up before Wednesday. Shouldn't be a problem.
WTF is President Obama thinking? I know I bring this subject up a lot, but it's really something that is on my mind a lot.
Stimulus Package? There are so many things wrong with this (mainly money allocated for abortions oversees and a $3 million "help" for the CDC to promote vaccines) I don't have the time or space today to talk about them.
My favorite is the $15,000 tax credit for people buying new homes. Um, Mr. President, you have to have $15,000 of taxable income for that to help. Not all of us make $150K a year. (Soapbox back in the closet now.)
Tax Refunds. Is yours spent before you receive it? Does it go to bills, fun stuff, or savings? We are faced with a real exercise in decision making this year with our return. I won't go into details, but I am curious as to what is the most common choice.
