I’ve been meaning to blog for several days, and each time I start to, something comes up. Now I have 5 days worth of blogs piled in my head and I just can’t wait any longer! This will probably be long and rambling, but it is what it is.

First off, have you SEEN the price of gas?!?! $1.69??? You have got to be kidding me. And yet they still claim there wasn’t massive price gouging? I am sick and tired of greed. As if the oil companies aren’t rich enough??? They gouge us for several years and then one day it just plummets. Even with them slowing down production. It’s just a joke.

Another thought that keeps bouncing around my head is cars. I don’t think I’m meant to own them. I think a horse and buggy would work better for us. Just a month or so ago, the back window in Tyler’s car busted and had to be replaced. It was just sitting in the driveway and it shattered. Nothing hit it. Nothing was even touching it. So, $268 later he has a new back glass. Then, 2 weekends ago, he tire starting making a grinding noise. Pretty sure his car needs new struts, but we’ll know for sure tomorrow when he takes it in. Then he tells me that the brand new window isn’t defrosting, so that has to be replaced on Friday. I manage to digest all of this, only to drive my car Saturday and have the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT come on in my 2 year old car!!! It goes in on Friday also. Luckily, we are still under warranty. As you can see, I am not meant to own cars.

This brings me to my next subject…work. I have to take off Friday to do the car juggling thing. My boss’ last day was Friday, so now I am doing most of what she did. There is only one person who can cover for me and she has her own fulltime job, so she’ll be swamped Friday. Then on Monday, she’ll be gone, so I get to be swamped on Monday. Such a beautiful system we have going. Guess they don’t have to pay out vacation if they discourage people from taking a day off.

Ok, next topic…Babies. Is it just me or is the number of teenage pregnancy in this area going WAY up? What are these kids thinking? Most of them can’t even afford to move into their own place, let alone raise a child. And why is it that so many say “Oh, I’m SOOOOO happy for you!”??? Why would you be happy that a child had a baby and was getting ready to struggle through a job they are ill equipped to do? Am I the only one who doesn’t get it?

And speaking of parenting, how many parents actually listen to their children’s music? This weekend I heard a 9 year old singing this song. I Kissed A Girl – Kare Perry I mean, what are people thinking??? Why would you let your child listen to this???
I Kissed A Girl lyrics

This was never the way I planned,
not my intention.
I got so brave,
drink in hand.
Lost my discretion
It’s not what, I’m used to.
Just wanna try you on.
I’m curi-ous for you,
caught my attention.

I kissed a girl and I liked it,
the taste of her cherry chapstick.
I kissed a girl just to try it,
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it.
It felt so wrong,
it felt so right.
Don’t mean I’m in love tonight.
I kissed a girl and I liked it.

No, I don’t even know your name,
it doesn’t matter.
You’re my experimental game,
just human nature.
It’s not what good girls do.
Not how they should behave.
My head gets, so confused.
Hard to obey.

I kissed a girl, I liked it,
the taste of her cherry chapstick.
I kissed a girl just to try it,
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it.
It felt so wrong,
it felt so right.
Don’t mean I’m in love tonight.
I kissed a girl and I liked it.
(I liked it)

Us girls we are so magical.
Soft skin, red lips, so kissable.
Hard to resist,
so touchable.
To good to deny it.
Ain’t no big deal,
it’s innocent.

I kissed a girl, i liked it,
the taste of her cherry chapstick.
I kissed a girl just to try it,
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it.
It felt so wrong,
it felt so right.
Don’t mean I’m in love tonight.
I kissed a girl and I liked it.
(I liked it)

And Christmas, which is stressing me out already. Of course, with 11 places to go, it always does. Anyone else have 11 places to go over the holidays??? Or am I the only one? Honestly, it isn’t even December and I’m already dreading it. It shouldn’t be that way. I should enjoy my vacation and my time with family, but I never do because all that we do is rush here and rush there. It’s ridiculous. I’d like nothing more than to have one LARGE gathering with all of my family, but we can’t do that because everyone is divorced and can’t get along. Oh well, I’ll just get through it like I do every year, and then I’ll say “Next year we aren’t doing this!”. And then we’ll do it all over again.

Ok, enough rambling for now.
