Sick Day

Woke up this morning with a mega headache, which made my stomach ache. Took the day off and slept most of the day away.

What i would like is to be able to spend a day or two by myself in my house while I am feeling well. So much to do, but when one is sick, who cares if anything gets done?


Feeling better this evening. Just drained of energy. Hoping tomorrow will be a “well” day.

Sometimes I feel that if I began to cry over some of the things my… Continue reading

This is What I Want (aka Pipe Dreams)

‎1. all news stations are biased, and if you don’t believe that, then your eyes are not open 2. every politician lies, otherwise NO ONE would ever be elected based on what they really plan to do when they get in office (point in case–every president, congressman, senator, governor, etc., that this country has ever had) 3. good leadership makes a leader good 4. being a successful businessman should not be a negative, and since our government (all of whom we need to fire and start over) runs our country like a business, maybe we need someone who knows how… Continue reading
