Haven’t felt well at all lately, just the way it is. Had a voicemail today from the PA, says nothing unremarkable about my bloodwork, I suppose that’s good. Wants to discuss the X-Ray, something about arthritis. I’m no doctor, but arthritis doesn’t explain this. Nor does a dark mood, nothing like that, this is physical, I think. The mind can play tricks but this doesn’t feel like that. Just have to play it out, hope it is the mind or a weird muscle ailment.
Funny thing is, JM was just going through something like this, waiting for the results of his tests, well, no doubt that I can relate to that. Come to think of it, one of the sibs is going through it too. I’ve written my obit several times, thought about a new spouse for SU, how it would feel to never see grandchildren, you know, the usual. At least for a demented person.
So much happening in politics right now it is hard to keep up. Immigration (border chaos). Taxation (stealing away the middle class). Loss of freedoms (think Patriot Act). Health care (think wacky system). Iran wanting Christians and Jews to wear badges (think honor). Opie and Forrest wanting to find Jesus’ relatives (uh, think CHURCH). Guess that last one doesn’t have much to do with politics but my fingers just go sometimes. Mayoral election in New Orleans (think who in their right minds would vote for nuggin’ head?). Mid-term elections swinging to Dems (think Shrub being impeached, Cheney being impeached, Hastert prez?). Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House (think, required abortions and euthanasia).
Whew, that’ll bring you down. If you let it. But life isn’t about politics, hey, it’s about relationships and family. I promise! So what if the Dems get elected. Other than forcing abortion down our throats, which we are doing a good job of allowing ourselves, how can they possibly be worse than the Repubs? Huh? That’s right, they can’t. Period, end of story. So, let’s just focus on family and relationships. And vote against any incumbent, be they Dem or Repub. Just don’t vote straight party Dem, their platform is disgusting in and of itself. Vote independent or libertarian.
So, you ask, how do we focus on the family? By paying attention to them. By loving them even when they piss you off. By saying, hey, you know what, I don’t care if you tried to (insert whatever here), I’m going to keep on loving you, to the point of pissing you off! How about that?! So what if you can’t accept someone telling you when you go astray, I’m gonna do it anyway and I’m STILL gonna be lovin’ you! Ha, how about that?! And when you tell me I’m nuts, I’m gonna say, okay, I’m still lovin’ you! Can you handle it?
Like the subject line says, Rambling. Late.
