Wonders and Weirds

9 Apr

Having spent Monday low carb, I woke this morning with a fasting blood sugar well within normal parameters, although perhaps not as low as some of the docs would like.

It works. Now I must press on.

Today has been an emotional one. There is my ongoing inability to stop worrying. There is a new job to consider for Monday morning. There was a drug test today. There is little Angel, who will be leaving us this weekend.

Angel needs a bit of home training and we aren’t going to be in enough to take care of her. One of Bob’s co-workers had wanted her as well. Thanks Candy. She’s a cutie and I know she and Bella and the two cats will love her.

So today I’ve been to Pine Bluff, the airport, dinner with Falon, shopped for a few minutes, and finally found my way home.

I can hear the call of my Kindle, asking me to watch a bit of True Blood or read the latest piece of fiction.

Surely the best escape for a brain that is somewhat overloaded with the sad state of the country.

I discovered today that the Wal-Mart model of employee relations is alive and well and living all over the place. What happened to taking care of your employees so they would take care of you? That 1% must be planning to take all that cash they are stashing in the Caymans with them when they die. That has to be why they are hanging on to it with a two-fisted grip. My respect for Costco is growing.
Our education system sucks.  Our kids are not getting what they need. They are being taught to test. Period. We have lost the ability to guide our children and treat them as individuals. Not all of us are college material. Not all of us are mechanical. We don’t guide our children in their life choices. We just test the hell out of them.

Gun control is being pushed aside by Republicans. Asa Hutchison from my beautiful state has rolled out a report calling for armed guards in schools, a report paid for by the NRA with about as much credibility as the report my Lab wrote. In fact I think hers was better. She called for watchdogs trained to sniff out assault weapons and crazy folks. I believe she may be onto something. I’m sure those dogs would find a whole host of crazies in the Capitol. I’m also sure that our children would be safer with the dogs.

And then there was the Jonesboro man who cited the addition of armed guards in those schools and wrote that yes indeedy more guns in school are just what we need.

Where is the sanity? Why do the folks running the country appear to have firmly planted their heads up their asses? I wonder how long the sane among us will have to wait for the loud collective POP when all those heads come out?

I’m going to look for my peaceful place. I think I left it at the barn.

Oh please, oh please, oh please share your thoughts!
