Concerned American Woman

Could everyone stop blaming Donald Trump for the hate in America….Hello who was burning the court houses, killing our officers, shooting up clubs, work places and schools…. how about the anti gay protests and the people killing over skin color….. ALL THAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING SINCE I AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER THE HATE HAS BEEN HERE. ITS UP TO US TO FINALLY DECIDE TO UNITE AS ONE OR KEEP THE HATE GOING, BUT TO BLAME TRUMP FOR SOMETHING ALREADY HERE AND BEEN HERE IS IGNORANT……. I love everyone, gay straight, white, native american, Jewish, black, baptist, Muslim ect I don’t care who anyone is. I do not judge based on the outside appearance or sexual preference of anyone its what is on the inside that matters to me. Once America can stop dividing and realize what we really are and fight for what we really are American Humans the hate will remain and we will be in the same spot. But stop acting like the hate just started for God sakes its been here and clearly is still here to how about we do something about that instead of once again blaming and choosing sides. When really we are all one, wanting the same things and I am sorry but I am a proud American Woman and anyone against our own country, burning our flags, being disrespectful, running hate from their mouths, causing chaos and being just ignorant well you are the problem period. I was a single mother of 4 working 2 jobs until 6 years ago, I have been raped, jumped for my color, had to make women’s health decisions that were far from easy, been mentally and physically abused most of my 31 years of life, have suffered loss, have family who survived concentration camps and some who were not so lucky, have family on reservations because we pushed them there, had kids out of wed lock, had to live in some bad areas to make ends meet for my kids. I got my GED and I put myself through college to give my kids a better life all while struggling through all the above things because of my decisions and you know what I never blamed the president, I never blamed my parents, I never blamed the lame father of my oldest children, why because I am a human with the right to make my own choices and I am also a human who has to face the consequences for my choices.I knew that for every action and choice I made came a reaction and I knew that I had to own what choices and actions I had made, I had to learn from them, grow from them and then do something about them. I knew I chose my life no one but me. I have been through a lot most people will never know or understand. So before you think I was some rich white privileged American spoiled brat think again. I went through pure hell for what I would say was all but the past 7 years of my life. I worked hard to get to where I am and stand as strong as I do.I am very lucky to have found my husband, my best friend who still works 60 hours a week to pay bills and so we can eat 10 for 10 spaghetti at Kroger. We are a family of 8 now still struggling….. but back to the point who’s fault is it really that America is in this position, it’s our own you cant blame someone for hundreds of years of hate and problems when he has only been here 10 days. Be honest with yourselves and realize it is us who needs to change towards one another not anyone else but us. I am over seeing all the blame games and finger pointing take responsibility for the choices you made, pull up your big kid pants and own it, acknowledge the problems and as American Citizens do something to change that instead of cause more issues. ALSO HE SAID HE WANTED TO DEPORT ALL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WITH CRIMINAL RECORDS….. Sorry guys but there is not a damn thing wrong with that. Everyone is making what he is doing into something it is not and I am over it. I will not fight with you all anymore. I am done with it. We divide ourselves and make ourselves look like idiots all over the world. Do something positive for your cause or SHUTUP

FEEL FREE TO SHARE THIS IF IT WILL HELP SOME ONE SOME WHERE SOME HOW TO UNDERSTAND WHAT WE ARE FACING AND HOW WE ALL STRUGGLE ITS HOW WE COME OUT OF THAT STRUGGLE THAT MATTERS.

Rough Winter

I the beginning of December I learned there was no more going forward with Zeus.  They told me to enjoy Christmas & New Years with him.  I tried waiting, but couldn’t sit there selfishly watching my baby suffer.  So on the 22nd, I put him down.  It was so rough.  I felt dead inside.  When I put his brother down, I was a bawling mess, but him… it was like part of me was shattered.

Christmas was good despite being without him.  I spent Christmas Eve over night with my dad and Lois.  I got to see all the kids, but Travis & Nick.  I really missed seeing Travis especially, considering I don’t get the see him or his siblings often enough as it is.

Mom’s was where I went Christmas morning.  She framed two beautiful photos of my handsome man for me, which made me cry.  She also got me a necklace that my best friend makes, and I love it to pieces.

Susan gave me, for my birthday, a helium balloon saying Happy Birthday… the damn thing is still in the air attached to a chair in my dining room!  It’s been almost two months!  LOL.

After the New Year, Nicole & Adam went on a hunt with me to find my next kitty.  I found a dainty beauty in this cat, Phaona.  GORGEOUS!  Unfortunately by the end of the first night,  I was choking back the Benadryl & taking my inhaler!  Must have been the longer hair.

I was going to give up, and literally just the day before yesterday found the cat.  I got him at the Napanee OSPCA.  He came as Sarge.  He definitely had a home before, but they found him on the streets.  He is a HUGE cat.  Not fat huge, just a really big boy!

His adoption came with some health insurance, his first set of shots, his neuter, and a microchip.  Plus him, and a bag of food!  That’s insane!  Such a great place.  He was there big boy there, and have been sending them photos of him settling in.  He was settled within two minutes of being here lol.

He is 3 years old.  I have decided to name him Odin.  Odie for short.  He is a sweet heart that means well, but is like a bull in a china shop.

Grams came to stay over night here yesterday, and he just loved her.  He also got to meet Nick and mom shortly.

Watching The Crown.  So far it’s REALLY good!  Love how it’s ver historical.  What a great story so far!

I am going to head out for now.

 

Ttyl.
