Some mumbo with some jumbo.
-They just showed on the Today Show the first $1,000,000,000 home. Yes you read all those zeros right a BILLION dollar home in India that was built by the worlds 4th richest man. It is 27 floors, has numerous pools, a movie theater that seats 50, hanging gardens, a ball room and a 600 person staff. WHAT! Who needs all that? And to boot it over looks the Mumbai slums where over 60% of the population still lives. What a slap in the face for them! I would egg it!
-I read an article yesterday on yahoo about a Minnesota Mom who was sued by the RIAA for downloading 24 songs off of Kazaa for $1.5 million. This happened in 2006 and she is about to take it back to court for the 4th time. You go girl! That makes my $3700 that I had to pay when we got sued for the same thing look like chump change. They originally wanted $7500 but Billy told them we would have to declare bankruptcy so they settled for $3700..how kind of them. Yep I have been sued by Virgin, Capital, Sony, just to name a few. If you download songs illegally don’t keep them in your shared folder, we learned this the hard way even a year after we stopped downloading!
-I don’t understand the debate among some regarding the flu shot, to get it or not to get it. There is a worry about it containing preservatives. Do you really think the doctors are going to give you something that is going to hurt you or your child. My answer is no. I would rather my kid have the shot and not get the flu and be in the hospital than worry about a little preservative. With the kids in school, in my opinion, the flu shot is a must. Kids in school are little walking germ dishes waiting to pass it to another. Think of all the parents that don’t have the time or can’t take off work to deal with their sick kids, therefore they send them to school to be around your child. Flu shot? Yes please! **Just my OPINION.
-I read a friend’s post yesterday (you can find it here: http://firecracker3.wordpress.com/2010/11/04/how-much-do-you-trust-others/) about trust and how hard it is to find someone you can truly and completely trust. I read it and sat back and thought about it for a minute. In my 33 years I can count on one hand (that would be 5) of how many people I 100% hands down trust. That is not a lot. Finding a trusting person is very hard, they are a dying breed. I feel very fortunate to have my 5.
-I am ready to put my house up for sale and move. We have always moved a lot since getting out of Indiana and where we are now is the longest we have stayed put. I love Tennessee so I don’t want to move out of state just a change of scenery, a different town. I feel it here becoming stagnant, like the waters have stopped flowing and the ripples will soon seise. I don’t like stagnant, time for something new. Hopefully within a year we can make this happen.
-I am a very confident person so when I feel myself questioning who I am it eats me up inside. I have had this feeling lately and it is driving me insane. There is nothing worse than the feeling of questioning who you truly are, especially when you know you are amazing. So why am I feeling this way? I am blaming hormones and PMS.
-My sister and I are talking about starting our own business venture. This is so exciting but yet scary as all get out. We have been talking about it for 2-3 years now and have never acted on it. We have put our foot down and said enough with the talk we need action. Hopefully over the next couple of months we will have all of our ideas on paper and be ready to make the first step in the process to make our ideas come to life. She has always wanted a shop with random stuff in it to sell and I have always wanted to do photography so we are hoping to combine the two and see what we can come up with. All a little overwhelming. 🙂
-My girlfriend in Maryland and I have been talking about a girls trip to Vegas after the first of the year. I have been thinking about this a lot lately and I am really hoping we can make this happen. If not Vegas, Key West maybe or hell I don’t care somewhere fun and warm. Getting a group of girls together for a weekend away is always a great time! What better place to do that than Vegas, it’s cheap, fabulous, fun and well, always a good time. We have got to get on this and get something booked! Who wants to go? 🙂
Happy Friday!!! Hope everyone’s weekend is rock’n!
