If you would please take a moment of your time, please sign this petition for a young man named Jacob who is taking on one of the big Pharmas to lower the cost of the medicine he needs to keep him alive. It is a friend of a friend, so it is a personal favor for me. He’s a sweet kid – he (and no one else, for that matter) doesn’t deserve this. He deserves a long, healthy life, which is currently being denied to him because of greed. Thanking you in advance. It only takes a minute, but could make a huge difference. I have a child – I know what it is like. ♥
I absolutely love this idea! Blessing Bags to keep in the car when you pass homeless people. Something special you can do with the kids to teach them about caring for others.
Gallon size Ziplock bags
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
hotel size shampoos
pack of gum
coins or predetermined dollar amount, say 5.00 (could be used to make a phone call, or purchase a food item)
you could also put in a warm pair of socks
a packet rain poncho
tampons (for women)
The ideas could be endless!
Assemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence.
I was invited to the Annual Fall Festival today. Part of me wants to stay home and chill and listen to Celtic Music all day and just do mundane Sunday stuff. The other wants to bling myself out, go, show my new self off, and pretty much tell those people what I think of them, their little cult, they way they treated me for 15 years – how, by not making me full time, yet using me for everything I had – has put me at poverty level for disability. How my refusal to become one of their sheep because I was NOT, nor will I EVER be ANYONE’S sheep has made me loathe them, bitter, and ALMOST remorseful that I ever spent all that money to send my daughter there. But in the end, that is what is came down to. Always. What was best for my daughter. And she is a Waldorf child. No two ways about it. The nanosecond I left, I was replaced by a sheep, and they miraculously made my position full time. What to do, what to do…..
Can I please have this man as my grandfather?? This is amazing!! Especially in this day and age when, if you really want to get technical, it is the older generations having problems accepting LGBT people. Bravo and kudos to this gentleman for having the balls to tell off his hypocritical narrow minded bitch of a daughter, and I hope he carries on with his fabulous self!!!! This makes me so happy I want to send to every narrow minded asshole I know, but that would be a LOT of emails or facebook posts, so I will just be happy on here!! I don’t DARE go back and read the comments now on HuffPo – it’s been a couple of hours. I am sure my blood pressure would be about 400/200!!
So I let my daughter and her boyfriend take my car down to Sterling Forest for the Renaissance Festival – after the whole tire fiasco on Friday, I am a LITTLE worried, but they have my AAA card and they should be okay. I just have to save up for 2 new back tires by December – sigh. Maybe Santa will come early!! I can’t remember if I blogged about what happened or not – the Effexor is messing with my brain, and I don’t need that on top of the already Swiss cheesed menopause brain!! Hopefully, it will be a nice, safe, quiet ride for them – they have good weather (albeit a bit chilly, but still nice). I miss being there with them – maybe next year, when I can move around a bit more!! Lots to do here anyway, including finishing up some blog posts and getting ready for my author host day – so excited!! 😀
I slept most of yesterday, so I am hoping I can stay awake enough today to get things done!! Wedding pix are up, so I want to peruse those and pick out some faves!! Don’t know if I can make the NJ run this Saturday, due to the stoopid tires, but I know everything happens for a reason, and Debbie’s show will be ongoing, so I will just miss the reception, which is probably a good move, as I don’t need to be smooshed in a crowd at 4′ 11″ and everyone drinking wine! I will go when I can enjoy her work with so much distraction!! Have a wonderful Sunday – I am going to go listen to “Sunday morning music” and get some stuff done!! Love and Light!!
