If you are tempted to turn the KitchenAid mixer up to the highest speed, don't do it. Especially if you have sisters with long hair. Said sister might be tempted to look into the bowl to see how it looks at that fast rate and her hair might get caught causing her hair to be yanked out in big clumps.
Then Mom might yell at everyone because she's feeling extremely guilty for getting caught up in her phone conversation while the mixer was doing its job. No matter how many times she apologizes or cries, there's no taking back those angry/scared words.
Ask us how we know.
Please pray for us. Sister is recovering but she has a really big bald spot on top of her head. She's worried about how it will look at ballet. Also, please pray for me. I really need it. As my category states, I really DO love my children.
"Americans can actually go to dinner parties and cocktail receptions around the world today and not have to apologize for the United States the way they have had to do the last several years," he said. "The election has made life a little bit easier for Americans living and traveling abroad to hold their head up high again."
This quote was in this article. This article ticks me off. It goes beyond my dislike of our President-elect. Well, sort of. Why are Americans apologizing? Why aren't they already holding their heads up high? I am proud to be an American. I will never apologize for the United States.
I'm disappointed in the Catholic vote. I'm saddened to think that there are so many Catholics who voted for someone who is the biggest pro-abortion candidate. EVER. This even after so many bishops stated that it's a grave sin to do so because abortion is intrinsically evil. There's no way around that.
Another thing that bothers me. The end never justifies the means to me. Too many people voted for our new president because of his race. To do was not called racist but to vote for McCain because he is white would have been called so. To me there's no difference. Voting for our president elect just to have an African American as president despite what his beliefs are is plain wrong. Race shouldn't have been an issue for the African American community. Values and ideals should've been. Don't tell me that race wasn't an issue. It was. Check out the Harlem videos of people who had no idea what the issues were. Oh, and I'm not a racist. I've been on the receiving end of discrimination and racism. I know what it feels like and I don't discriminate. EVER.
One more thing. In California, they passed a measure that would require egg-laying chickens have bigger cages. What a great country we live in that the chickens are given more room but the unborn are sacrificed.
ETA: I feel robbed too because I can't celebrate the first election of an African American to the highest office of this country.
This morning when Sister woke up, I told her who had won. Her response? "Impossible." She could not understand why people would choose the culture of death over life. I couldn't even begin to explain to her that people were choosing to sacrifice the life of the unborn for economic policy.
Never before in the history of America have the nation's citizens selected as their leader a man so steeped in the support of evil as Barack Obama. Never before has America so sullenly turned her back on God and on His laws as she did this day; never before has America so unquestioningly played the harlot to the new false gods of modernity and relativism. Never before have Americans so blindly chanted slogans while secretly lusting after their neighbor's goods; never before have Americans been so naked in their covetousness, their demand that the federal government feed them and clothe them and wipe their snotty noses in times of illness--all to be paid for by the open theft of the honest incomes of other men, who now have no incentive to work hard and strive for success, since that success will be stolen from them and used to line the public coffers.
Read the rest of what she says. I did my part to try to stop this. Did you?
