A Ramble

Before we start, let me say Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. I still have to call mine today. He's busy at the moment. (He's probably delivering a sermon right now). So dads, enjoy your day!

I wasn’t sure what to write about today so I thought a ramble would be a good thing. You see, it allows for many different trains of thought to find its way to a page, in this case a post. My how things have changed since I was a kid. Internet? What’s that?

Rene Descartes wrote “I think, therefore I am”. Does that include crazy thoughts? Just because I think, it doesn’t mean I’m sane. Sanity went out the window with me years ago. That’s what happens when you have children and you are married to someone who is oblivious to your feelings.

So what do I think? I think lots of things. I wonder why I can’t find a job. That answer is simple, the economy and the fact that I don’t have a degree yet. I prefer not to dwell on that issue, at least not today. I think about the possible drawbacks for continuing on with my education. That one is easy. I’m 47 years old and I’ll be paying back student loans FOREVER. I mean till I die. Wow! With my family history, that could happen before I even finish school. That could be a positive. Yeah, I know negativity. So it’s on to the next thought.

Facebook is next on the list I guess. I am relatively new to Facebook. I make comments on there as it does ask what’s on my mind. However, I don’t get much in the way of responses. It seems that most of the people who wanted to be my friend are really faking it. There are a small number of people who actually respond to me. What’s up with that? I try to comment on their posts. I thought that’s what it was for. Silly me for thinking that.

I think about the fact that there is only one bathroom in my house that I have to share with 2 men. Aaarghhh!!!!!!! All you ladies out there know how annoying that is. For all their assertions that they understand all things scientific, they have somehow neglected to admit the laws of physics apply to them too. Splash?

Still wondering why no one wants to participate in the Fawk You Friday. It really is a chance to blast the haters and get your aggression out (at least to a degree). It was started for a good cause, so it should be a priority for all bloggers who know about it. I guess we’ll see if anyone participates this coming Friday.

I wonder where all the people like me are. I know there are the ones who start their careers late in life with kids grown and the future in front of them. I just don’t know where they are. I don’t find them blogging that’s for sure. Of course, they may be there; they just don’t like my blog. I can be a bit brash for some people.

There’s my ramble I guess with nothing else at this point. If you think of anything, let me know. Maybe I’ll figure out something to say about that too.


  1. I actually discovered Fawk You Friday right after I'd written my Grammar post, and realized it was perfect for the cause! So I grabbed the button, put it on there, and BAM! I'll be a regular to it from now on! Lord knows, I can think of at least one thing each Friday that I'm going to be thinking, "OMG, FAWK YOU!" Haha

    Honestly, Facebook, for me... eh. I have a page. Occasionally, I update. I use it mostly to just share pictures of my kids with my family though. There's so much drama on Facebook.

  2. I freakin love you!!! I'd love to see more Fawk You Friday visitors...I've 'heard' that some are offended....fawk isn't even a bad word. ;)

    Drop me an email..I wanna be your FB friend! XO
