To Wed or not to Wed?

I was always taught: “God loves you no matter what…as long as you’re kind to other people and animals”…so does “your” God feel the same way?

I really don’t think too much about gay marriage…I feel: 1: you can’t pick who you fall in love with and 2: how is this affecting me? 

I often think, what if one of my three children were gay..would I still feel the same? Would I still love them? At first, as I was reminded by my daughter today, I might feel a little shocked, only because I wouldn’t have a grandchild. Other than that, I would still feel the same love I do now for my child and want them to feel love for someone else. I would want my child to be happy with who ever they decide to love, because, you can’t pick who you fall in love with.

I was always taught that God loves everyone. I was always taught, be kind and loving and God will be happy. Why must people feel so much hate towards two people who want nothing more than to be in love and married? Does your God teach hate?

Also, how does this effect your live personally? Ex: if John doe across the street from me wants to marry John doe, how does this effect my life? (unless of course I get invited to the wedding and don’t know anyone that I’m sitting next to!)

People need to worry about more important things, like jobs and hunger and war. 

My daughter said it best in her blog. you can’t pick and choose your religion when it’s good for you.

I want the truth

I want the truth

4 dead Americans…I want to know why? How could this happen and EVERY news station, except Fox news is reporting this! Outrage…American should be ashamed of their government….We deserve the truth and so do their families

My Bucket list of Storms is Complete…I hope!

Let’s see, I’ve been through: A Earthquake, A Blizzard and A Tornado, but never, ever A Hurricane, and thanks to Hurricane Sandy, my Bucket List of Storms is Complete!

I live in Central New York and we never have hurricanes. This is a first. Yes, we might have some winds and alittle rain from one off the east coast, but never this far in. I guess that’s why they are calling it “The Frankenstorm( halloween theme and it’s so big).

We are use to Blizzards and Lake Effect Snow. Hardly a winter  without one.(except for last winter where I ony snowblowed once..that was a freaky winter). A few tornado’s…sometimes, but like I said, never a Hurricane.

So, is this house prepared? You bet! Even went out yesterday and bought a generator. We have flashlights, batteries, food I don’t have to cook for a few days and gas in the car. Why do you ask, if you’re asking, are we so prepared? My husband is “OCD” about things like this! When he told me yesterday that he wanted to buy a generator, I was like, “why?”..then he told me that, if the power does go out, they’re not going to come and fix our little area, they are going to the bigger area’s first and we could be without power for days…made sense to me, hence the generator.

I pray for all the people up and down the east coast and Central New York and everywhere else this “monster storm” is going and I hope people didn’t take this lightly and are prepared!

So, come on “Sandy”, let’s see if you’re the “Frankenstorm” they are talking about! And prayers to all!

Dear People Next Door

Dear People next door: As you know, I have been “tweeting” and  “facebooking” about you since my kindly neighbor, Beth,aka: “Mrs.Kravitz( I named her this after the character on the tv show Bewitched, because, well, you know why..) passed away.

It started slowly, like letting your lawn grown into a forrest of green, making me post about it and finally complaining to the real estate lady, who didnt care, forcing me to call codes on you. Then you mowed it. Well done, well done.

Then it started with me posting about the tarp you put over the garage, that was getting ripped by the wind and pieces were flying into my yard…I complained, you fixed it. Well done again!
Then, the endless people, marching thru your lawn, which is connected to my lawn, dropping their garbage along the way, while looking at the  house wondering: “Honey, do you think this is a nice place to bring up little Johnny?”, I posted it, you stopped, life was good..

 

Then one sunny day, asI was pulling into my driveway after work, I see a U-Haul Van and 20 cars, pulling tons of “Mrs Kravitz’s” stuff out..I thought to myself: “Holy crap,she had alot of crap and why are they doing this?” The next day,20 more cars, loads of crap and me wondering…  Then another sunny day(seems all this happened on a sunny day), I pull into my driveway after work and I notice the for sale sign is gone! What??? Could this be true? Someone actually bought “Mrs. Kravitz’s” house? What the heck? Who are these people? Would they be nice? Would they be freaks like the other neighbors on the other side of my house(that is a whole other blog and I’m blocked from seeing them by bushes)My life was turned upside down!!

So, My advice to you, New People Next door: 1: Mow your lawn regularly, because I kinda like that and I can be mean. 2: Don’t mess with my dogs. I have 4 nice dogs, they happen to not like little kids too much(previous experience) and that’s why I keep them in their fence yard. So please tell “little Johnny” or  “little Suzy”, don’t bug the dogs. 3: That’s about it. Oh yeah, remember, I will “tweet” and “facebook” about you and it will be under the title: “Dear NEW People Next Door.  Poor “Mrs Kravitz(beth) I do miss your “wacky” ways!
