my daughter’s school held a circus yesterday. cotton candy, prizes, juggling and all of that other circus-y stuff. running through the door at the end of the day, she dashed into the kitchen and proudly announced that SHE had won the juggling contest! and because of her expert skill at this newly learned form of entertainment, her fifth grade class was permitted to sit in the first rows of seats during all of the circus-y extravaganza. she was the class hero! high fives and “Go Mary” could be heard throughout the gym! much of the evening proceeded with my budding circus star teaching the rest of the family how to juggle. (it’s more difficult than it looks but i am not that coordinated) she was “over the moon” with her achievement and i could not stop laughing and smiling. for those of you who do not have children, i realize that you do not understand. for those of you who have children, no explanation is necessary…!!!

Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidise it.
— Ronald Reagan
i was thinking about the previous post “I’m Not An Adult and Here’s Why” and can’t stop laughing. guess that’s because it caused me to remember myself in my twenties and some of the silly things, thoughts, actions, that go along with the whole mess of young adulthood. the post also forced me to think about myself now, at 50. you know what? i wouldn’t change a thing! once you reach adulthood( i can’t pinpoint the exact date that it happened to me but i think it had something to do with paying credit card balances in full instead of the monthly minimum payment) you just don’t care anymore! wait a minute you say…isn’t that the job of the youth? not to care…to be footloose and fancy free. sure it is. but adulthood conditions you to get all of the important stuff finished on time, when it’s due, and still not give a rat’s ass about any of it! like paying taxes…ugh! i hate taxation. government takes too much and does too little. but this is where voting comes in. i have to admit that i have voted since i was 18. my reasoning for this is because i like to bitch, moan, and complain. feeling the way i do it didn’t seem right not to vote but complain about who was in office. no no no. i want a stake in that action! and finally, adulthood clarifies what was really important all along. you do know what it is in your youth too but like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz you need to get hit over the head with a window to have it sink in. faith, family and friends. that’s all that really matters and that is all that ever will.
if you want to start your day off with a belly laugh, you know, one of those deep laughs where you laugh until you cry, please read the previous post. this guy is funny!
this is too funny!!!
Personally, I believe adulthood is overrated. Being respectful of people, doing the right thing, eating healthy, having money, who needs it! However, no matter how I feel about it, it is inevitable. It’s coming no matter what and all you can do is suck it up and act like an adult. Unfortunately, at 26 years old, I still don’t think I’ve got it and here’s a few reasons why.
Seriously, what is this?
Here’s what I know:
- You’re supposed to do your taxes every year.
- There’s both federal and state.
- It’s no fun.
Here’s what I don’t know:
- What the hell I’m doing.
- What I’m supposed to save. (Receipts I think right? I bought a hot dog at a gas station today and saved the receipt. I’m getting there)
- When they’re due.
- Who to give them to. I assume some guy just comes to my house on tax day…

17) Liberals have created, and the minority leadership has exploited, a community of dependent people, unaware of the true route to prosperity and happiness: self-reliance and self-investment. Instead, people are told that America is unjust, unfair, and full of disadvantages. They are told that their only hope is for government to fix their problems. What has happened is that generations of people have bought into this nonsense and as a result have remained hopelessly mired in poverty and despair — because the promised solutions don’t work. And they will never work — they never have. — Rush Limbaugh

New International Version (NIV)
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also…
