I’d better find some self control quickly. Yes, last night was horrible. It was absolutely terrible but I can’t be like everyone else. I can’t be the loud mouth, violent speaking, yelling at a moments notice kind of person that fills this world. Around 4:30 this morning I was a woman with no self control. And it matters not that I had a hard night. It doesn’t matter that I was in incredible pain or that around 4 am I was finally able to put my body on the bed and manage that pain too. Only to those closest to me is that relevant.
Self control is the first line of defense in a world gone mad.
At 4:30 am a car pulled and parked outside my bedroom window which happened to be open. His radio was blasting so loudly that it woke me up. He sat there with his windows down and the radio blasting. I jumped up and yelled out to him, “It’s 4:30 in the morning. TURN THAT RADIO DOWN.” Finally some guy came out, got in the car and they drove off.
There was no cursing, nothing like that it was just that I should have closed my window, period. I need self control, less impulsivity.

The idea is to list 10 happy things that happened this month. What 10 things are making your month a happy one? Once you have your list link back to the original post by using the banner that say, “Lets Start A Happiness Revolution!” This will link back to all the happy revolutionist.
When I found this entry I thought it would be especially good to do to keep my spirits up. I wanted to list 10 positive health things that happened this month.
The 10 happy, positive, healthy things that happened this month are: Continue reading ‘Happiness List’
I’ve yet to talk to this friend about why I’m angry with her so even the small things seem huge and the big things seem insurmountable. Undercurrent is a relationship destroyer.
The other day she and I went to the store and to dinner. We hadn’t planned on going to dinner but we did. Doing so meant I became part of a lie to her husband. I don’t appreciate that at all. Then the entire time at dinner she talked and talked and talked about her current situation. I wanted to yell at her, “You’re in this situation because you have no self control.” I, of all people should never give a speech about self control, its just that when someone presses so hard and pushes relentlessly it makes me want to be blunt and swift with my opinion. She, as usual, pushed and she got one tiny little bit of truth from me.
This is a very disjointed entry that I won’t even attempt to straighten out. My head is kind of all over the place and my emotions seem rather intense right now. I’m raw from listening to hatred for the last 24 hours. Twenty four hours of ‘us against them’ speech is enough to leave anyone angry and tired.
One of the ‘what the hell is wrong with people’ moments took place today while driving to dinner. Right there in front of God and everybody was a sign on an auto dealership that says, “We speak English”. Well good for you Hillbilly John. One little sentence tells me I have no desire what-so-ever to patronize your establishment. And please just say what you mean. Take down the “We speak English” sign and write “We’re bigots.” ……….I’m an American. I speak English. ……Oh shut up!
Today was interesting to say the least. Let me start with what happened the other day. The other day a man in my apartment community was angry and kicked over our fire pit leaving scorch marks on the ground. He’s being evicted for his stupid antics. That’s been on everyone’s mind and the subject of a lot of talk for the last few days. It was also discussed today when my friend and I did our two mile walk together. After we came back from the walk we heard the sound of glass breaking outside the door. I didn’t even check to see what it was. I thought someone was arguing or something UNTIL of course someone screamed “fire”. Continue reading ‘Fire and Two Little Ducks’
I wasn’t going to comment on the whole Whitney Houston thing until my cab driver’s wife told me she thinks Bobby Brown killed her. After going through all that, I came home and someone else wanted to talk about it so, it looks like I need to clear my mind of this then let it go.
Bobby Brown DID NOT kill Whitney Houston. Whitney was an addict who was killed by her inability to control her addiction. Whitney was a “grown ass woman” who made horrible choices all later blamed on Bobby. She had showmanship and beauty but at what point do those two things cease to cover transgressions? Funny how everyone is all, “Oh our sister is gone” and “We’ve lost a family member,” when just the day before she was the butt of your crackhead jokes? Whitney had a problem within herself and her body, a problem that went way beyond a washed up 80′s singer.
