Gettin er done !

While the Republican party and their counterparts in the tea party, have been stomping their feet like Rumpelstiltskin.
President Obama in this past week was able to get his health care reform passed, then went on to
sign an agreement on Monday, to cut American and Russian strategic nuclear arsenals by at least one-quarter.
A first step in a broader effort intended to reduce the threat of such weapons drastically and to prevent their further spread to unstable regions.
While people thought he was at Camp David,
President Obama arrived in Kabul on an unannounced visit, his first since his election, and held immediate talks with President Hamid Karzai.
May this be a beginning of bringing our military home
This President who has been so criticized is on his way to show all of his critics how wrong they are.
I can't wait to see what he does next.

What a week!!

I have been blown away this past week by the hate rhetoric we have been hearing.
Whoopie Goldberg on The View looked into the camera and warned the right wing "If some nut job decides to take out someone, it's on the hands of the leaders in the Republican party"
She has it right, they are standing on a cliff and about to jump off.
Sarah Palin is taking all of her supporters for a ride while she fills her pockets with money.

I'm surprised she hasn't started her own church.

I hope Alan Grayson gets re elected, he is what we need in Washington.

It's time has come!

Archbishop Nienstedt of St.Paul diocese, asked that a letter be read at all the masses today,advising parishioners to contact their Representatives
and tell them to vote NO on the health care bill until there was a stronger pro life amendment in the bill.
What is pro life about allowing 45,000 people die every year because of lack of health care, or Seniors who can't afford their medications because of the donut hole. ?
Meanwhile, in a rare public disagreement that will reverberate among the nation's 70 million Catholics, leaders of religious orders representing 59,000 nuns sent lawmakers a letter urging lawmakers to pass the Senate health care bill.
Expected to come before the house today, the measure contains abortion funding restrictions that the bishops say don't go far enough.
Everyone knows the Nuns are the backbone and the conscience of the church
I think we should trust those ladies who work with the ill and the indigent.
I did call my Representative and I asked him to support the bill and I think everyone should do the same.

Yes some of our Representatives will lose their seats, but it is a sacrifice they will never regret

Life Goes On!!

It has been another one of those busy weeks but I wanted to give you an update!

I received a phone call from one of the officer's handling the case of the missing check book and debit card.
An arrest was made for a robbery in a near by community and the suspect was identified as the one using my debit card at a local Super America.
He did confess, but said he found it and didn't take it.
I don't think the result makes any difference
He was part of a ring that has been working in the metro area, I think there are others in custody.

Yesterday a notice from the County Attorney's office informed me that he is being charged and I was assigned a victims representative.
I have a form to fill out in case there is need for restitution.
I am one of the lucky victims in this group, because I discovered my checkbook missing within 10 minutes and Hubba contacted our bank right away, I didn't lose anything other then my trust in people.

I am going to contact the representative because I want to be informed of the case as it goes on.
My guess is, it will end up in a plea bargain to avoid the expense of a trial.
Since he is charged with another robbery I suspect he will see some time.

Tonight we have a Sweet 16 birthday party at my daughters, for Alina the Russian exchange student who is staying there through the school year.

We consider her our Russian G daughter..gonna miss her when she is gone.

Larry, Moe or Curly ??

Yesterday I felt like I was in a scene from an old Three Stooges movie.
If you ever saw any of their movies you'll know what I mean.

I sat down at my Computer and reached up to adjust me glasses and poked myself in the eye.
Brilliant move, I continued to check my e-mail then my eye started to feel a little weird
so went and checked a mirror.
Staring back at me was a big blob of blood surrounding my iris.
Now I have had broken blood vessels before but nothing like this.
I looked like the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
I called my eye clinic and told them I was on my way as soon as Hubba got home from work.
I didn't wait for them to tell me they didn't have an opening.
I knew my Doctor would see me, he really cares about his patients.
Sitting in the examining room I was already making a list of things Hubba could bring to the Hospital after I was admitted.

When Dr. Mark came in he couldn't help but laugh when he saw me.
After he gave me a very thorough exam and found no damage,
he told me to think up a good story to tell people because my eye was going to look petty crappy for about 3 weeks.

If I had a camera I would post a picture but the best way to describe it right now is a green brown Iris surrounded by a big blackish blob.

Now if I only had a diamond studded eye patch to wear the meetings I have this week and next.

Guess my sunglasses will have to do for now.
