What I support

Equality is the buzz word of today. You may have noticed many of these




on your Facebook and twitter feeds.


This afternoon amidst child retrieval, a friend asked me "what do you support?"


I don't usually espouse my political and religious beliefs, but here's what I support...


I support kindness, I support not being a douche. I support not judging people based on anything except the content of their character, looking passed a persons skin, gender, political choice, partner, height, weight, disease, job, level of education , and looking instead at the human, the person, the heart, the soul. I support examining your own-self and imperfections, before trying to pick apart what we believe are the imperfections of others. I support loving people, all people.


None of us get out of here alive, who has time for hate?


I don't want to be judged, so why would I pass judgement?


Here's another hot button issue, while I'm on a roll... I own a gun, I know how to use that gun, and I would strongly dissuade anyone from breaking into my house or threatening my children. I have many family and friends who don't agree with that, but love me anyway, and I return that love, unbiased, without prejudice.


I love my friends and family because I love who they are, they make me laugh, smile, think, try, succeed, hold me up, and knock me down when needed. Nothing else matters, black, white, right, left, gay, straight, man, woman, doctor, cab driver, tall, short, fat, skinny, WHO CARES?!?!?!!


What do I support? I support being nice. Period.

Ode to Jules

J is for journey, the one she's on to find her joy,
U is for unique always different never coy
L is for ludicrous, crazy, insane fun
E is for exciting, adventurous always on the run
S is for my sanity in the lack of hers she gives me some.

My friend Jules is amazing, I can't imagine life without her. Before I knew her I moshed less, drank less, and had WAY less fun.

Love you Julann!!! Happy Birthday!

These things

Girl Scout Cookie season is over! Can I get an Amen?

I was in my first EVER mosh pit at Flogging Molly this week... Best night ever!


I believe in ghosts and on occasion see them.

Got to see my bestie last Friday. Can't wait for our next NKOTB night in July. I love her ridiculously a lot.




I don't chase after people when they leave my life anymore, they know where to find me if they want to come back.

Who wants to bunny/lizard/turtle sit for spring break?

Missing Marsi a lot lately. Life is unfair sometimes, and cancer really sucks.



Can you train an older dog?


Changes are coming in a lot of places in our lives, but I am looking forward to new adventures.

I always have this in my pocket.



Waterpolo started up again. I love that my boy found something he loves.



6th grade camp starts tomorrow... Nervous

Connor took his girlfriend to winter formal last week, he cleans up nice.





I get to see my favorite brother on Sunday!!! I'm excited!!!



Looking forward to our spring break road trip. Hoping the snow melts at the Grand Canyon soon.

I love my daughters friends, they made her birthday awesome!




I might be the funniest person I know... I'm kinda hilarious. Well I make myself laugh at least.
