It is strange how things become popular, just a few short years ago I loved the llama song, when many people found it annoying and would throw it out, and now today I find out that it is becoming one of the most popular videos on youtube.  What changed people minds?  I used to wear all black and dye my hair strange colors, as well as crimp it and I have love new kids on the block forever.  I still have my bed sheets and the dolls.  I never stopped listening to them.  For many years people have said mean comments about it, and I have been shunned, and people have said mean things about the group.  I never cared though I still listened to them and watched their movies.  Now that they are back and a new thing they are all sorts of popular again, I have even had people trying to offer me money for my things, which they can kiss my toosh a year ago they thought my things were stupid and were calling the group fags.  A true fan of something is someone who likes it even through the less popular times.  I can’t turn a corner now without seeing people wearing what looks to be pieces from my closet.  using my hairdos and all these things that people would shun me for, and even go so far as accuse me of being on druge because I wore those type of clothes.  That often pissed me off!!!!!!!!


There are so many things in life that people take for granted, and do not realize what a miracle they have been given.  A tree every year all by itself losing its leaves, and growing them back again.  A cat having kittens and instinctively knowing what to do, they don’t read all these books that we have, they just know.  The sun pearing out from behind those dark clouds to give you warmth on a day when you feel so cold. 

The rain falling when the ground has been dry for so long, that people are afraid of fires starting.  The phone ringing with the person you miss the most on the other end, saying I will be there in five minutes.  Feeling love in the most unusual and dreadful times in your life. 

Living for years, when your doctor told you that you wouldn’t make it 6 months.  These miracles happen everyday, but most of us are too busy to notice.  Having a child is by far the biggest miracle god can give anyone.  To watch as it grows inside you, is just miraculous.  To see them after their birth and how they know the voices of the people around them on that very first day, then to watch as they grow into these tiny little humans and each so unique, growing into their own person.  Looking so different from what you thought they would look like.  Everyone kind of guesses when the baby is born who it looks like, and as the child grows you see the characteristics become their very own.  Sometimes its as if they want to prove everyone and everything wrong becoming something so different than what people first thought.  Sometimes becoming the most amazing people anyone can ever meet, and others becoming the people that others are afraid of. 

It is just amazing what love can do.  Love can change that person that everyone is afraid of into a person that everyone admires, and a gentle being.


Ordinary Miracle By Sarah McLachlan

It’s not that unusual
When everything is beautiful.
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.

The sky knows when its time to snow,
Don’t need to teach a seed to grow.
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.

Life is like a gift they say
Wrapped up for you everyday;
Open up and find a way
To give some of your own.

Isn’t it remarkable?
Like every time a rain drop falls,
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.

Birds in winter have their fling
But always make it home by spring.
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.

When you wake up everyday
Please don’t throw your dreams away;
Hold them close to your heart
Cause we’re all a part
Of the ordinary miracle.
Ordinary miracle

Do you want to see a miracle?
ohh ohh ohh, ohhh ohh ohh…

It seems so exceptional
That things just work out after all.
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.

Sun comes up and shines so bright
And disappears again at night.
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.
ohh ohh ohh, ohh ohhh ohh…
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.

Fall is almost here

As the cool breeze comes in through the window and blows my hair from my face, I feel that fall is approaching us.  The summer smells have gone, things are starting to pass on, the new borns in the spring are now moving away from their creaters, and becoming their own individual selves.  The stores are all about having sweaters and thick pants, all the shorts and tank tops are being boxed up for next year.  Soon Christmas will be upon us.  Just 3 months and 5 days from now.  It seems the world turned so much faster this year.  Like some force was pushing it along.

I hope with the new year comes a lot of love and luck.  All I want more than anything is a place to call home.

Iowa vs. Iowa state

This weekend is the big Iowa vs. Iowa state game.  It is all over TV. and radio.. OMG!!  people making football planters, and football things that hold chips and pretzels..  and all this other crap that no one really ever needs.  I mean why cant people just simply get together and watch the game without going out and spending a ton of money on things that will more than likely get thrown out and only used for this game and maybe again when the super bowl comes around.  Many of the people that I have seen getting all hyped up are not even real foot ball fans they get excited over those two games, and go all out, then complain cuz they have no money.  Well DUH!!!!!!!!!! 

Just use a bowl you already have or leave the chips in the bag..  Plant your plants in the ground and just chill out.  People who are really into football arent going to care if you have weird planters and forks shaped like goal posts.  Do not complain when they dont notice because I tried to tell you. 

That sort of thing has always gotten on my nerves.. the people that complain constantly because they are so broke but then the same day or the next they are at the mall buying more outfits they dont need or other junk like a new purse on top of their 50 purses they already have.  Listen people its called a budget!! pay your damn bills first!!!  then have fun with left over.. save some of it just in case..  Do not come to me asking for money constantly when you could have used your own money rather than going to the store and buying things that just pile up and you end up throwing out..  Clean and organize your things.  You will be surprised what you find.  Just because the infomercial says something is cool and that everybody needs one that does not really mean that you do.  They just want your money.  damn!!!!!!!! 

I should really work on my swearing.  I just get so worked up when people keep doing the same thing over and over and always want me to bail them out but at the same time they dont want to do anything about it.  I have my own problems people.  I am not talking about everyone here so dont get all defensive but if this has made you think then try to consider those things.  I am actually talking about only two people in particular who are on my last nerve right now. 

On to happier news.  I hope that Iowa state wins this game.  I really like that team and pretty much always have.

Politics Drowning Me!

I am so sick of hearing

“my name is John McCain and I approve this message.”

Or even “My name is Barrack Obama, and I approve this message.”

It would not bother me to hear either one of those messages if the message didn’t constantly follow a commercial full of bashing the oposing person.  I want to know what you are all about from you, not from he said she said bs…  If I wanted to learn things like that I would go sit at a local middle school.  We are adults, and you two are wanting to be the leaders of our great country, why can’t you seem to set a good example for our youth.  What is that really teaching anyone?  To me it says who ever spreads the biggest rumors and bashing the other person the most is the one who is going to win.  Wouldn’t you much rather win, because you are the best person for the job, and because you know you are going to do great things for our country? 

I was so excited the last two presidential votes.  I knew exactly who I wanted to vote for and got all geared up for it, and I also helped promote and worked for the campaign.  I still remember knocking on doors in the rain and cold.  Being chased down by a crazy old lady who never votes.  I was able to meet several people that I most likely would not have and only watched on tv hoping to have that chance.  This time I just don’t have that drive and motivation. 

What I want to hear is what the person represents, how they voted on different things, or if they even voted at all, as well as why they voted that way.  people need to consider a few things when jumping to conclusions when these people vote on things many times there are other things attatched to that vote, and you have to either vote yes for all or no to all.  I personally would not vote yes for lowering taxes if it was attatched to something that said all elderly woman must dress in ninja uniforms and carry weapons.  I know that is a silly example but you know what I mean. 

There are a couple other things.. 

Just because someone isnt against abortion does not mean they are all for it either.  They arent trying to say ya everyone should go get one, what that means is that people should be given the choice.  Many people think it should be regulated somehow.  Example:health reasons, both mother and baby are at high risk of dying and the mother is already bleeding heavy..  Or a twelve year old girl who got molested or raped that got pregnant.  Sometimes people need to put themself in other peoples shoes. 

I guess use common sense when looking at voting go through and do your research about different things. 

I am also sick of hearing racist and dameaning jokes, they are not funny.  It is really no one business how many diapers someone changes, and lets not be ignorant.. no ones face is on a food stamp..  go take your mom and look in  a mirror the person next to you changed some nasty diapers and the one looking back at you is going to be nothing more than a food stamp mascot if they don’t stop making up rediculous jokes, and educating themselves instead.


The seasons are changing, leaves are falling from the trees and turning beautiful vibrant colors.  Instead of rolling the windows down in your tank top and shorts the windows are going up with a sweat shirt and jeans.  The windshield is covered in the mornings cool dew.  This morning a fog surrounds us as we leave to do our daily running, we must be more cautious and drive slower. 

This season is wonderful, if you pay attention, you can see all the animals scampering trying to find all their things for winter.  You can see deer in the fields carelessly eating anything they can find.  Their once young baby from the spring is nearly old enough to strike out on its own.  What were once tiny kittens that could fit in the palm of your hand are now half grown and nearly as big as their mother.  The great circle of life keeps going as the old woman takes her last breath, the new baby is born.  The earth is planning for its rest over the winter so it can wake up this spring and be healthy and more fresh than we have ever remembered it.

car rides

Don’t you love when you are in your car and you have a whole world to yourself.  You can have your favorite scent in front of the vent so the air pushes it all around you making you calm and at peace.  Music that you love fills your space and you can jam, relax, or unwind, and even miss someone through the words in that song.   Isn’t it a bit scary at times how many emotions music can give us.  Many people have different songs or different genras for their moods. 

I found this song today and it just for whatever reason strikes me as the perfect song today.  I do not know what it is about it but the guys voice just kind of soothes me.  I really love this song.  I am going to share it with you now.

This is by Poets of the Fall.

“Carnival Of Rust”

D’ you breathe the name of your saviour in your hour of need,
And taste the blame if the flavor should remind you of greed?
Of implication, insinuation and ill will, ’til you cannot lie still,
In all this turmoil, before red cape and foil come closing in for a kill

Come feed the rain
’cause I’m thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust
Yeah, feed the rain
’cause without your love my life ain’t nothing but this carnival of rust

It’s all a game, avoiding failure, when true colors will bleed
All in the name of misbehavior and the things we don’t need
I lust for after no disaster can touch, touch us anymore
And more than ever, I hope to never fall, where enough is not the same it was before

Come feed the rain…
’cause I’m thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust
Yeah, feed the rain
’cause without your love my life ain’t nothing but this carnival of rust
Yeah, feed the rain
’cause I’m thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust
Yeah, feed the rain
’cause without your love my life ain’t nothing but this carnival of rust

Don’t walk away, don’t walk away, oh, when the world is burning
Don’t walk away, don’t walk away, oh, when the heart is yearning
Don’t walk away, don’t walk away, oh, when the world is burning
Don’t walk away, don’t walk away, oh, when the heart is yearning

There is just nothing more relaxing to me than a nice night that is a bit cool with the car windows down music up singing the favorite song of the moment.
