Link to It’s unreal to me that Osama Bin Laden is dead.

I feel a bit of cognitive dissonance about Osama Bin Laden's death.  It's weird to me that people are celebrating death. Seeing his picture on every news channel only makes me think about 911, our troops and the wars that have been a part of our lives for the last ten years or so and I don't feel like celebrating. Honestly,  I just hope that his death will be the catalyst that brings the rest of our troops home.  Also I am very proud of our President and the decisions he has had to make recently.  I can't imagine how hard it is...

This morning I woke up to find my hot water not working, my yard flooded and water shooting up out of the pipes outside of my house.  Ironically enough my husband left at 6 a.m. earlier this morning to catch a plane to Los Angeles, California.  Before he left, he wrote down the plumber's name and number just in case I needed it. Avoid a not fun Saturday by letting your hot and cold water run from your faucets and showers at night when the temperatures drop below...

Happy New Year! My mother always told us that it is good luck to eat black eyed peas on New Year's Day.  Let's hope that is true.  It should also be good luck that last night was a Blue Moon and my first New Year's Eve as a married woman! According to Wikipedia (Side note:  I know that referring to Wikipedia is the equivalent to saying according to my neighbor Bob, but for whatever reason I still frequent that site), other New Year's traditions include: The dropping of...

This morning at around 8 a.m. someone knocked on our door.  I hate when people knock on my door.  I feel like I am forced to answer it because my car is in the driveway.  I hate that.  So I looked out our bedroom window and I didn't recognize the person but he apparently knocked on the door then took 10 steps backward.  It was odd.  My husband answered the door.  When he got back in bed I asked him what that person needed and my husband said that the man...

Link to I try to avoid small towns in Alabama

This past weekend (11.20.09-11.22.09), a small group of my friends and I went camping at Dismals Canyon located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Northwest Alabama.  As a general rule I try to avoid small towns in Alabama.  I am not defending or explaining myself on this matter.  But my husband and I were invited on this particular trip and I decided what the hell a. I loved camping as a child and b. I have been to Dismals Canyon a couple of times when I was younger and I thought my husband would really enjoy...

Unfriend is the 2009 Word of the Year

Link to Unfriend is the 2009 Word of the Year

While driving home after work and listening to NPR, I heard that Unfriend is the 2009 New Oxford American Dictionary Word of the Year.  I admit that it makes me feel sane to deny a friend request when I have no idea who a person is or when I deny a friend request because I am not friends with that person but i am not sure that I have ever unfriended someone.  It also makes me wonder if I have been unfriended at least in the social networking world. Shouldn't the Word of the Year be a positive word instead of...
