I just don't get it

I have not ranted in forever, so I am due. Okay people what do we think of the new health bill? Quite frankly I don't really understand it. I understand two things, One, it is law to have health insurance now, two we cannot be excluded for previous illnesses.

All right, So the thing I do understand is that now the government says I have to have medical insurance. But I don't work for a company who has insurance and neither does my husband. Okay it seems like we are in the same place we were before. Can't afford insurance, but now it is the damn law to get it. Oh don't get me wrong I would love to have medical insurance and they say there will be programs for those who can't afford insurance, but I guarantee we will not qualify for THAT program. Gees, a girl just can't get ahead.

Okay, as though this is not bad enough. Have you heard about the 20 cent tax on plastic bags at the grocery store? I am one of those people that carries reusable bags. But when I go big shopping I don't have enough of those. I guess I am going to start carrying a suitcase around, a really big one. Ridiculous..........The government screws up and is looking to nickel and dime us to death. I mean how many things can they tax, how much money do you really think is taken from us by taxes? Think about it, phone tax, hotel tax, service tax, cable tax, tax tax tax. Seriously, add it up I bet it would be in the hundreds per month and thousands per year. Gees no wonder a girl can't get ahead.

Come people don't you have an opinion? I am looking forward to hearing from you.

The thoughts, The thoughts

Oh My, The thoughts going through my mind. Okay first, I HATE people who throw puppies away. I don't get it, what are you accomplishing????????? I think people who can do that are pure evil. Just evil.

Second, I believe that restaurant food should taste good. Unfortunately, it does not. By the way never go to the Mexican place at the Harbor in Ventura............Never. When food is bad you should not pay for it. EVER

Third, Family is important, don't ever Dis your family. If you are lucky enough to have family then no matter what is going on, forgive each other and go on. Realize there is a greater good. Family means forgetting past crap.

Fourth, spend the money on a moment. Go away with your loved one, enjoy something new. Even take a night. Live with the people you love.

Okay these were thoughts, talk to guys soon

Talking with Robin

Hello I am back, I have beat the beast. I feel good and strong.

I was able to have this amazing conversation with my friend Robin. When I say friend I mean somebody I have known for 19 years, FRIEND. Those conversations are perfectly, imperfect. Everything that has happened in the past and everything that happened this week And we get it all in 3 hours. We had a party (on the phone) really aren't those just great fun. I call those mini + parties.

In a nut shell, we were angry at the government, angry that her friend had just been diagnosed with cancer, happy at good things we are doing in our lives, loving our husbands, jealous of the 49 year old woman who is (***) well you know, doing the 29 year hot guy. (But we would never trade our husbands for that 29 year old, no really never.) but the one thing we were happy about is that we could still stay up after midnight.

Joy, is a wonderful thing. Oh and I did something amazing today. I placed my first rescue puppy today. I got him from the pound and he was a mess. You pick it, he had it. But a mere 9 months later he was rehabilitated and now lives with a family of 5 and he is the only dog. It is a good match. Last they called me he was still playing with his new family. Good Thing

Wee glad to be back
