You know in the last few years it has become the American way to blame every one else for their problems instead of taking responsibility for their actions.  I just sat through over an hour of the president going on and on about how he was having to take care of all these problems that were there before he walked into the White House.  How the other administration did not do this or that and now he is having to take care of the problem.  Okay, hasn’t he spent more money in the first few months of his taking office than any other president in history?  What can he truly say he has made better that wouldn’t have straightened out by this point anyway?  How many recessions has this country gone through and then recovered?  I mean really,  he sure does talk a good game, has a great speech writer, but how much is really going to come to fruition?  I love the way he blamed the previous administration without naming names, but made his point very, very clear.  I really hope that the people in the gallery listening to him either had shovels or mud boots on, as it was getting very, very deep.  Maybe that was why they kept standing up and clapping, they were needing to dig out.  Really, have you ever heard so much crap?  Don’t get me wrong, he had some good points, some good ideas, but what is the likelihood of any of it every being put into action?  I love this country.  I admit there are somethings that really drive me crazy, but there is no better country in the world, but tonight really causes one to wonder if we can stay that way.  Till next time…

I am current listening to “Breaking Dawn” the last of the “Twilight” series. As I was listening to CD #11 I was wondering what life would be if these books weren’t fiction. What if there really were vamps walking among us. What if there really was a whole alter life intertwined with ours that is beyond our imagination? I wouldn’t want the whole monster and death part, but I guess with romance you also have to have the evil side. The unlimited wealth to travel and afford your heart’s desire. I mean really, who hasn’t seen a vamp movie and then had a moment of wanting to transform? I am sure it is far from the glamour the movies portray, but it is fun to ponder. Till next time…

The other day I was trying to decide whether I should go back to school or pursue my passion fiber arts. I decided I needed to pray about this. I have to admit that I have been a bit lax in the prayer department, well a lot lax, but figured that a decision this important needed to be discussed with God. I asked that if I was not suppose to go to school to put a stop to it – a sign I could not miss. Guess what? My funding fell through so I am unable to go to school at this time. Talk about a sign. I am also having a flood of ideas to get sassythreadworks.com a boost. I now have to get my mess of a work schedule worked out so I can start spending time in the sewing room. Til next time….

Okay, you might think I am a bit obsessed with my discussing bra-related issues, but sometimes a girl has to vent about the “girls.”  A couple of days ago I had this mole-type lesion removed from my back.  It was right between my shoulder blades and is probably nothing, but the doctor decided she better cut it off and send it to pathology.   I would have left the thing alone, but it was starting to bug me, so I went ahead and had it taken care of.  This causes the issue of me having this sore spot with five sutures right in the middle of my back right above where my bra hooks.  Last night I had on my “bullet bra” that I cannot hook by myself, but normally can unhook.  Well, apparently my wrists were tired of working correctly (30 years of typing way too much) and I could not get myself unhooked.  I am standing there trying to figure out how to the get the last hook undone and was just going to say the heck with it and pull it over my head.  I then had the quick thought that doing that would probably pull off the bandage on my back and take the sutures with it.  Not a good idea!  So, I then tried rotating the stupid bra around so the hooks would be in the front, not the back, but apparently my waist was too big for that idea, as I couldn’t get the stupid bra to rotate around.  I am then sitting there thinking that my bra is not going to win this fight.  I mean really, it is just fabric with some hooks and fasteners, it should not be able to win this fight.  Finally, after many, many, many attempts, I finally got the stupid last hook to give it up.  I mean really, maybe it is time to find a good front hook.  Till next time…

I have had a migraine on and off now for over three days.  I just don’t get why I get these stupid headaches or why they just can’t go away after I have taken everything from Tylenol to Darvocet.  It is really hard to work when your eyes will not focus on the computer screen.  I mean, why do we have headaches anyway?  What exactly do they accomplish?  Is it because we have too many thoughts rattling around in our heads?  Too much stuff we are trying to process so our brains are rebelling?  I just really do not get it.  I think I would like to have just about anything else hurting but my head, as it really reeks havoc with being able to function.  I just took two of those Excedrin Migraine, so now I have the jitters, as it has all that caffeine in it.  I really don’t know what is worse…the headache or the feeling of ants under the skin.  Hmmm, now it just sounds like I am whining – LOL.  Till next time…

Three years ago I was diagnosed as a diet controlled diabetic, which I still am, but I think to this day I still don’t accept it. I am terrible to either not eat or eat the wrong stuff and end up crashing a few hours later, as I will forget to eat again. I realize what I have done after I start shaking so bad I can’t hold anything then I feel horrible the rest of the day. If I would just eat right and start taking care of myself it would be different, but I guess that would take me finally admitting I am a diabetic, which I still haven’t done. Reason for this is other than fasting most of my sugars are normal, so it makes it easy stay in denial. I guess 2010 is the year to finally take charge and get my weight and diabetes under control. Hopefully if you are in the same boat you will do the same thing. Till next time…
