Goodbye Drama Mama

My mother couldn't leave the planet calmly and fired me and my sister over the weekend. We are both done on our end. No more energy or desire to keep trying with these people. So ends, 39 years of nearly constant familial torment from members of my so-called family of origin. Those that remain, deserve each other.

I am so thankful for my spouse and my children.

The Lord judge between thee and me.

Tired, oh so tired

It's been a week with too much sickness. My life has been touched by several diseases and illnesses this week. I'm not sick myself, just surrounded by suffering loved ones and others. Thankfully, the weekend is almost here.

Bravo, Mr. Wrathall!

Why this man's blog nourishes my soul several times a month-read his guest post at Mormon Matters .

I sat this political season's gay rights hullabaloo out. I'm just dying to make a comment on what happened, but it will blow my cover. We all sat it out at our house, pro, con and in between. Truth be told we are just exhausted with the subject.

Oh, and I took a confidential online survey for a trade survey which asked the responder to indicate whether he or she "openly" identifies as LGBT. This makes me wonder about the wording. Wouldn't you want to know the actual number of LGBT people and what they thought? Without the "openly indentify" language, I might have self identified, but then again probably not.

Or, is there a suggestion that the only LGBT attitude worthy to hear is that of outies? Forget the innies altogether, and God love those of us stuck somewhere in between. And, no I'm not talking belly buttons here.
