a hermit?

Do you ever just wish you didn't have to go anywhere or see anyone? That's how I'm feeling today. I have several places I have to be today and honestly, I don't want to do any of them. I just want to stay home with my kids. I'm in kind of a mood today. I don't know why, I just am.

I don't want to go to these places I feel like I "have to" go. These are things that originally I wanted to do but somehow that's been taken away and now it feels like a have to and well, that takes the joy out of it.

I kind of feel like I need to just crawl back into bed and start over. I guess you could say I'm a little sad today but I'll get over it. It's also just me being a little sleepy and tired. Yes, I definitely want to just crawl back into bed.

The news is a little disheartening. Our President has now made it known that our troops will NOT be coming home while he is in office. That means at the very least 3 more years in Iraq. That means at the very least one more rotation for DH and we aren't even through with this one yet! And I HATE THAT!!!! I want them home. I want peace. I want the dying to stop. I want the violence to stop! I want this over. I want my husband back, out of harms way, safe and sound.

Sorry about that, venting happens.


  1. well, just thought I'd update. I actually think I felt better getting out and doing the "have to" things I needed to do yesterday. I enjoyed them and am glad I did them.

    Got to talk with DH last night. We got to talk about everything and nothing. I love talking with him even when there is nothing new to say.

  2. Okay, I try to keep my politics off of this blog but I just have to share this. Sorry if I offend anyone but it is my blog.

    The 23rd Qualm

    Bush is my shepherd; I dwell in want.

    He maketh logs to be cut down in national forests.

    He leadeth trucks into the still wilderness.

    He restoreth my fears.

    He leadeth me in the paths of international disgrace for his ego's sake.

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of pollution and war,

    I will find no exit, for thou art in office.

    Thy tax cuts for the rich and thy media control, they discomfort me.

    Thou preparest an agenda of deception in the presence of thy religion.

    Thou anointest my head with foreign oil.

    My health insurance runneth out.

    Surely megalomania and false patriotism shall follow me all the days of thy term,

    And my jobless child shall dwell in my basement forever.

  3. That was an e-mail I received.
