Monday, Monday

Lets see:

The Dow is down 300 points as I write;
Gas is up to $5 a gallon (and I am traveling this week);
One of our battle buddies' son is heading to Iraq Wednesday;
The Jaguars lost 20-16;
The political rhetoric is angry and hate-filled;
My son's platoon sergeant thinks he is an SB;
Thousands of people are suffering in Texas and Louisiana.

I think it's time to declare a news moratorium.

All truth. sad. but true.

As my sailor husband says...life is like a sh&% sandwich, some days you have more bread, some days you have more...
Listening to the news this morning, truly it is one of those sh%& days...however....Both of my sons who are Airman are stateside, today! My mortgage payment is not past due. A/C is off and the windows are open. Music is blaring as I clean the hardwood floors. There are more blogs to read than I have hours in the day.

MAKE it a good day!

'dad,

I guess I will chime in with the "girls" Since my dad was a police officer and I did a few years there also we had this saying to make it through the day, Someday you get the bear, somedays the bear gets you. It's more fun when you are the bear though!

Hang in there!

Hey! they call me pops!

somedays - you are in the windshield, others you are the bug. and yeah, a news moratorium is sometimes a good idea. A day off from news!

Let's see - deployment date is set, migraine all weekend - but then there's Vegas for Milblogging, and ParentsZone got nominated for a Milbloggie. So lots more bad, but a glimmer of good.
