Spencer Quote 'O' The Day

"The whole point is to be a misfit, Mom.
It's all about being independent.
I am a strong woman, just like the mother before me!"
("only I'm not a woman...")

Fond of Panties

The caption of this photo, featured at KMGH.com, is:
"Panty Theft Victim Identifies Undergarments"
but I thought it said "Panty Theft Victim REMEMBERS Undergarments"
and I was thinking,""hmm, apparently quite fondly, too"
and then I re-read it and started laughing so hard that I might have peed a little.

WTF is this world coming to???

I ran into a roadblock this morning on the way to work. Figured out what it is:

from the Daily Camera:
"Boulder High School Locked Down Over Suspicious Incident
Boulder High School was locked down before school started
Thursday morning after two people wearing camouflage were seen near the school."

There are helicopters, state police, ambulances, etc etc all over the place. I'm guessing that the two people wearing camo are feeling pretty special right now.

Our world is fucked up, yo.

Help us help get kids into school

We are raising awareness, and we want other people to take part so that all children can get a good education and job. Did you know that 80 million kids are not in school because they have to work in dangerous jobs just to get enough money to get food and water?

We should be able to get those kids in school by 2015, but this can only be achieved if action is taken now.

Our fourth-grade class asked our school community members to add to our paper chain, representing our support for education, that we will send to Angela Merkel, the leader of the G8. We are also inviting people to our Global Kids Unite concert to raise awareness about all the children in the world who need all the help they can get.

The aid needed to send all children to school each year would be $10 billion. Guess how much money is spent on education in Ethiopia? Only $2.50 per child per year. That's why we are putting a lot of effort in to raising awareness for them.

Go to www.joinup.org to find out how to take action.

Slow Blogging

SOON, I will have something festive and interesting to blog about. I will take many pictures and dream up fanciful dialogue and create amazing artistical renditions of my emotions. But not right now. Right now, I need to get my J-O-B done and concentrate on not going crazy in the process. On top of an extremely busy period at work, it's the end of the school year crunch time for Spencer (meaning for ME as well), and I'm leaving for a conference in Vegas next Tuesday. Good timing, Deltek.

My schedule coming up (not that you need to see this, but it keeps me sane to see it all written down):

Today: Meetings all afternoon, long walk to get Spencer after school, gardening at night, class project
Tomorrow: Meetings all morning, haircut at 2, long walk to get Spencer after school, class, class project
Friday: Walk Spencer to school, WOOOOHOOOOO - no meetings (as of now), gardening at night
Saturday: Morning gardening, 12 -? Mother's Day party @ Pete & Kathy's, 5 - 8 Ellen's graduation party, 9- ? RJ's birthday party
Sunday: Morning gardening, 1 - 4 Sierra's birthday party, race to finish class project, pack
Monday: 9 - 11 Dr Gallagher, meetings thru 5, finish packing, finish class project, get all of Spencer's ducks in a row for my absence
Tuesday: Meeting in the morning, hop the plane at 1:00, EAT IN VEGAS, party @ TAO
Friday: Who knows, maybe we'll get married
Saturday: POOL ALL DAY, fly home
Sunday: Work @ Plant Sale 9 am - 6 pm
Monday: Back to work

Sometimes I just need some. Right now my soul is bleeding. More on that later.

Dear God,
May every aspect of my being be converted to Truth.
May every cell fall into placeand serve a higher plan.
I no longer wish to be who I was.
I wish to be more.
Marianne Williamson
From Illuminated Prayers

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson

"It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there's nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control? The activity of worrying keeps you immobilized." ~Wayne Dyer

"A non-doer is very often a critic--that is, someone who sits back and watches doers, and then waxes philosophically about how the doers are doing. It's easy to be a critic, but being a doer requires effort, risk, and change. ~Wayne Dyer

WHERE'S MY MONEY?????????????
