All about me!

Today is my birthday! And I have had a great one. I must admit I didn't think it was going to be a great one. Todd ended up not only having to work, but be on call and gone all day today and overnight! Plus, the kids went back to school today, so it was back to the daily grind of getting up early and making breakfast and lunches and nagging, uh-hmmm, I mean lovingly encouraging kiddos to get up and get dressed. So, kinda a regular Mom day for me. BUT, it has turned out GREAT! Yesterday, Todd and the kids and I celebrated...we kinda have a tradition in our family of getting a special weekend day on or around your birthday where you don't have to do dishes, make meals, discipline the kids, and make all the "fun" decisions about what to do that day. "It's your birthday, you get to pick!" So, we did that yesterday...they let me sleep in, I woke up to breakfast and presents, then I scrapped in peace while they got ready and did an errand. Then they made me a cake and Todd made dinner. After dinner, they sang to me and we ate cake. We even snuck in a family game of war (card game). My awesome hubby even "prepped" my morning as much as he could and unloaded the dishwasher after dinner (I usually do that when I get up) and had the kitchen and downstairs picked up and ready to go. He bathed the kids and put them to bed so all I had to do was pop in and hug and kiss them. It was lovely being pampered. And in between all that, i snuck upstairs and played on the 'puter. FUN! So, my picture of the day yesterday is this...

And today, even though it was "business as usual," my dear friend made it special by starting my day with a gift from her...a cute birthday martini glass (which I drank Diet Coke from today, LOL), a new novel to read and a pretty to-do list pad. Thanks Val! Then, we worked out together, as we always do on Monday mornings and ran a couple errands before picking up the preschool kiddos. Then, she treated me to lunch and we had a play date at her house for the kids, OK, for the Moms too! It was fabulous! Not to mention all the well-wishing phone calls, Facebook wall-posts and emails I have received today. I DO feel very loved! So, today I am 37, it was a regular day, I feel as young as I did yesterday. And this is my pic of the day today...I was on my way outside from the YMCA to do my run for the day.

Until tomorrow...

  2. The Beast is a place and the social decay which emerges. The Anti-Christ is the bullshit.
    The Anti-Christ is the positioning, whether enforcing the historical perception of the Holocaust, refusing to acknolowdge the existance/capability of Artificial Intelligence or the clone host fakes who infest society's upper eschelons, those who the gods use to enforce the BigLie which compells people to incurr evil through temptation.
    Everyone "going along" is part of the problem. Ironically, this may be where you "earn" your place in the Apocalypse and your "consolation prize".
    This is the REAL battle of good and evil. Take it or leave it.

    Sex is a temptation that the gods used throughout history among the grossly disfavored but more inclusively in this day and age.
    Relegated to the most disfavored in milenia past (Italian hedonism, etc) now their patriarchal positioning was used in the modern era to spread this midset throughout the Western world. Instead of experiencing decency as we did by marriage at 15 instead the men's disfavor has run roughshot, and their sexual impulses have defined the enviornment for everyone, including the females. To belong the females must sink to their level, ensuring a declining level of favor for everyone and a stagnant population, unable to progress forward.
    We see this frequently in the black community. Without the controls experienced by slavery and the KKK the people get out of control due to their morbid disfavor, and the result is dead 3 year-old children in drive-by shootings and 10 year-old prostitutes. The same has occurred with the males in Western societies, for they have similar abject disfavor which, left unchecked, develops into socially destructive behavior.

    Many tactics were used to achieve the decline we realized as we slipped away from sexual decency, but the effective result was deterioration down to the level of OUR blacks, the Italians, ironically. Free to blame them, minimizing culpability incurred, the gods are punishing the people, and we need to abate the desstructive behavior which has dragged us individually and collectively towards the edge of the abyss.
    The decayed state of society is a result of the female's failures to maintain control over the men, and the resulting inevitable Apocalypse will be their fault.
