"Maybe we can recycle kittens after they're dead."

In honor of the current and upcoming political nonsense...
(something about Sarah Palin's new hair style?)

and also because I work in government 
and this is (sadly) pretty dang accurate....

and also because I don't have anything to post about 
but this made me laugh out loud.
Like, really loud...

I've decided to share this video with you 
(which was shared with me earlier today by a pretty awesome lady 
who happens to live in a house the size of a Subaru, 
but that's beside the point)....

Green Bay City Council discusses kittens.

I'm cool. The hell with kittens. 

This blog is dedicated to my  seemingly one (and only) reader:
Johi at Confessions of a Corn Fed Girl

Because she actually missed my blog posts.

And then posted something on my facebook.

Which made me think:
 why does she have all this time to harass me on facebook?
Shouldn't she be practicing her guitar for her upcoming video blog?

If this were real it would really make you wonder why there is a City that why they have meetings that are late into the night? So they can talk about kooky things? hehehehe!

I read you! I do, I do!!! I have to be honest and say the holidays really messed with my blog time. We all should take a break so that there isn't so much reading to attempt to do. I don't think I will every catch up.

I read your posts (and love them) - keep writing!

I used to read your blog but then I asked you a question about 7:01 and you never really answered and then the holidays kind of took over and as much as I really missed you - I didn't realize I missed you until yesterday when I checked to see if my feed was broken because it's not like you to leave us hanging for 2 weeks.

Anyway, I am reading, stalking, just not commenting as much since I got a new job and I am not sure how much they patrol the internet usage. I test it out a little more each day. :)

The hell with kittens indeed - where's the referendum?

I figured you were far too wrapped up in domestic bliss during your time off of work to blog. I'll keep commenting and pestering you to write if you do the same for me. (You seem to be the only one who reads mine.)

I've been reading!! We have missed you!!
I am totally ready for Johi's guitar 'pickin' video blog too! Or how about another song video from the well disguised gal from 'across the pond'? I think we should start a song request list for them both!!
and I think you should post of video of YOUR acting skills! :)

Aw! Love you ALL so very much! I fell victim to whatever cold/flu/plague thing was going around this holiday season so I pretty much parked myself on the couch and prayed that someday I'd be able to type. So much fabulous reading to catch up on!!

The House that God Built

in·stan·ta·ne·ous /ˌinstənˈtānēəs/ adjective 1. occurring or done in an instant or instantly.
synonyms: immediate, instant, on-the-spot

The thing is, she died so sudden.
I didn't have the chance to plead with God, to make all the irrational promises. If he would just let her be okay.... I would start taking better care of my health. I would be nicer to the neighbor that drove me crazy. I would always let someone else go in front of me at Walmart no matter how long the line was. I wouldn't complain. Ever. I would volunteer at the Homeless Shelter. I would clean up after pigs. I would clip the toenails of the elderly. I would do anything and everything He would ask me to do....
There is a box on her death certificate that captures the amount of time between the initial injury and the time of death. It reads "seconds." I wish it read "instantaneous" because she deserves a clever word like that.
Fast forward five years.... definitely taking MUCH longer than "…

Seeing Avery All Grown Up

One day I'll tell you about the freezing cold we left and the heavy bags we lugged, full of supplies and medicines. I'll tell you about arriving in Port au Prince and walking across a cracked concrete parking lot to board an old school bus with a flat tire. How the heat was suffocating after months of below zero Wisconsin winter weather, how the people crowded and walked too close to moving traffic as we searched for a tire shop that was barely more than a couple men sitting on overturned 5-gallon buckets on the side of the road next to a pile of old tires, everything covered in dirt.

I'll tell you about waiting on the bus while they removed the tire and I'll recall the loud explosion that rocked the bus and scared the life out of me and how I was relieved to learn it was just the tire blowing after being filled too far. (They didn't have any gauges.) And then I'll tell you about the fear I felt when I realized we didn't have a tire and we were stuck on th…

When Your Imagined Life is Nothing Like This One

There were so many ways I imagined my adult life would be....THIS is not one of them.
I posted that on my Facebook wall last night. It might have been seen as funny except my choice of hashtags gave me away:
treading water getting nowhere piles of disappointment not many successes worn out and exhausted out of options

I always imagined my life would be thrilling. Full of exciting adventures and people from all over the world. I would dine at Ethiopian, Thai, and Indian restaurants. I would write books, teach English, coach forensics and direct the play. My husband would be charming and funny and not care about gender roles when it came to household chores. He would beg for at least six kids and I would fall in love with him all over again each time I caught him giving good life advice.
I would take photographs and travel the world documenting the people I came across. I would adopt a sibling group of three or maybe four and work on foster care policies because the ones we have aren't work…
