Excitement Mounting

Only 24 hours until my birthday vacation trip and I'm getting more and more excited.  Of course, it's been snowing all day at my destination and there are travel advisories . . . better not impede me getting there.  That's all I have to say. 

Bwahahahaha . . .

Senseless Violence

Once again, a senseless tragedy has occurred with the bombings of the Boston Marathon.  I don't understand the minds of those that perform these acts of terrorism.  Yes--I said terrorism.  Whether foreign or domestic, it is terrorism.

The Boston Marathon was dedicated to Newtown, in memory of those lost in the senseless shootings there.  Now not only the people of Newtown have been exposed to more senseless violence, so have the rest of us.

It's frightening to know that there are people out there that care nothing for human life, have no values, and no code of honor.  This bombing will trigger yet more nonsense from both sides of the gun control issue, and those already on edge will be pushed over the edge.

Our children deserve to grow up in a world where they can feel safe doing their normal, daily routines.  Yet they don't.

My prayer for all is that we can come together and be stronger for all of this, and hopefully stem the tide of violence.

God bless.

Excitement Expanding

I'm getting so excited.  Getting ready for a vacation in Colorado to see some old friends and renew a friendship with someone I haven't seen in 26 years.  The excitement is building and I have butterflies in my stomache, but I know it's going to be great!

Renewed and Improved

I had an epiphany yesterday.  I have been hiding myself from the world.  I realized that I allowed the Ex to keep me down, which I knew to an extent, but didn't realize how deep it really was.  I allowed him to "put me in a corner" and that is unacceptable.  Afterall, "nobody puts Baby in a corner."

I realized all the weight gain, lack of energy, reluctance to go do anything, and crappy clothing choices were because he either made comments or ignored me.  So, I ate more to gain weight and downplayed my looks, subconsciously thinking that if I made myself more invisible, it would justify these actions on his part.

Well, no more of that.  I got rid of all the granny clothes; I'm comfortable in my looks and carriage.  No longer will I be the wallflower I found myself to be in recent years.  That's right, the Bitch is back and I take no prisoners.
