Quinnten doesn't like Lemonade

Although I may not eat meat, we do go to Chik-Fli-A on occassion. The man there is an amazingly nice man who is great with all the kids and remembers all of them. Plus, they have amazing lemonade and it's the only fastfood place where I can get a drink. Since Quinnten was grabbing at my straw, we decided to let him taste it.

Real Housewives

While surfing the never-ending world of the internet last night, I stumbled upon a blog discussing the week's TV shows. Since I don't have cable, I usually take a gander and see what's going on, which usually reminds me just how much I'm really not missing. Among the many clips I watched was one from that horrible excuse of a show called Real Housewives. Now I've never actually watched the show - which might explain why I haven't gauged out my own eyes yet - but I have seen previews for the show so I sort of had an idea as to what I was getting myself into.

Or not.

Ride with the Moon

The past few days have been rather ... shall we say ... interesting. Although Halloween was on Sunday, my little town felt it was appropriate to have trick-or-treating this past Thursday, which consisted of nothing more than going from porch to porch picking a piece of candy out of a bucket left there.

Hate is a four-lettered word

There are few things in this ever shrinking world that manage to unite tens of thousands of people who are all angry at the same thing. Even Whitney Hillman - the highschool junior who kidnapped (chickennapped?) her chicken from her classroom and ran out the door and into an awaiting car all in an effort to save him from being slaughtered at school for means of a project - hasn't reached 2000 supporters yet.

Breasts are for food, not sex

Although I have several blogs written in my head that I have yet to type out, I'm annoyed enough at the moment that I feel I must write this one out.

Everyday, it seems, there is a new story about a woman who has been harassed because she is breastfeeding her child in public. People gawk at her, managers tell her to leave, snide comments are made in her direction. It's rude and immature. Yet some loser celebrity always seems to sneak in a comment about how they find it gross. One of the annoying Kardashian whores comes to mind. (I don't remember which one. They're all the same. But this would be the one who posed for playboy and then made the comment via twitter that she was disgusted by a woman breastfeeding in a resturant next to her and that breastfeeding women need to learn some modesty. Because she's so modest. Right.)

You are not a threat

While reading a stay at home mom's blog - who also happens to be a conservative Christian who believes in the whole biblical marriage deal - I found something rather .. shall we say .. in need of some editting and research. She's talking to others like her, who "choose to train to become a homemaker" and "choose to live at home with your parents and serve your family until you become a wife and mother" and - most importantly - "live under the jurisdiction of your parents until you are given in marriage to a godly young man to whom you choose to submit" due to biblical teachings. "And you're a threat", she says, to the feminist movement. Her blog has quite a following as there are many, many responses to this post, all of them applauding her, agreeing with her. But I must say, I respectfully disagree.

I Breastfeed because I'm lazy

I am a lazy person by nature. Laundry piles up in three or four baskets before I finally decide it's time to do it. And even then, I take it to my parents' where I get dinner made for me (and Maeleigh - woohoo!) and go home with clean folded laundry that my dad did for me. When I was in high school and college, I rarely cleaned my room. It was just too much effort. I never even got a drivers' license because it's just too much trouble to learn how to parelle park, a requirement for the test in this state.

Homeschooling does not equal conservative christian

Although conservative christian does usually equal homeschooling.

Recently, I've noticed an increase in writings about homeschooling and how conservative Christians love it. While this is true, I've also noticed an increase in people assuming that homeschooling one's children means that one is a conservative christian, and that's just not true.

Our first real snow fall of the year. It was so beautiful.
