A Mother's Philosophy of What

I have become used to running errands with my children. Before my husband was deployed, my husband and I would take turns watching the children while the other ran the errands and took the children to their activities. When my husband left for Asia, I struggled to go anywhere with my children. Now I have learned to enjoy their company at least until one of them throws a tantrum.

I am a housewife of a white collar executive who works for the federal government. The military is his part time job and his true passion. I do nothing all day and do not understand the struggle of the average American woman.

I barely have time to fix my hair or even put on make up. I give myself manicures and barely have time to go to the gym. I sleep when I can which isn't often because my son has been sick. Last week he had a febrile seizure and his little face turned blue. I had never been so scared in my life. I barely slept after that for I had to check his breathing whenever it was too quiet.

When I get a quiet moment I read about Metaphysics. Why? I really don't know. I noticed that many of the philosophers never married or had kids. You don't question God or your existence when your child's face turns blue. Suddenly the world centers on that little empty face and all you want is that face to look at you again. Who cares about the universe at that moment? You realize that God rules over all and you are helpless without him.

No wonder Nietzsche went insane. He declared that God was dead. The universe then became to enormous and empty for his mind. What human could possibly understand the eternities without divine assistance. (Does this make me a Thomist? )

I realize I am writing in a modern style but doesn't realizing that make me post-modern. Why yes, it does. I am post-modern whether I like it or not.

Overprotective Mom's Guide to Pop Music this Week

I have 2 teens and so I try to keep up with what is going on in music. I want to know what my kids are listening to. I also need to be aware of what songs are playing on the radio while my kids are in the van. I listened to the Top Ten pop songs on the Billboard chart and wrote down my impressions of the songs.

My son asked me one afternoon, "Mom, why is Ariana Grande walking side to side?' I usually don't listen to the words and focus on the beat and melody so I was surprised that he caught what the lyrics were. The song he is referring to is "Side to Side" by Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj. I've heard that song around 200 times over the last couple of months. I just figured she was dancing with some guy and they were swaying side to side like you do at church dances. Well, I found out what it really means, prompted by my son's question. She's had sex with a guy all day and all night so she's so sore she walks side to side. (Vomit) Now I ch…

I Am a Yield Sign

Yeah, girls, it is my honesty time. I am now like one of those people in a reality show in those confession rooms ready to tell all!

I am embarrassed about this usually but I think I should share. I am a size 12 but my chest is about a size 16. Yeah, honey, I do not have a problem in the chest area! However, what most people don't think about is that a big chest does look fat, otherwise they are more than likely fake. I have big arms and shoulders to hold up my 36D's. Another problem with these things is that my back aches and cleavage shows in almost every shirt. I would have been a goddess in the 1950's but now I look like a cow!

I have an inverted triangle body type. I am wide on the top but have small hips and no butt. My legs and arms are skinny and bony. It is not the most attractive body type and most clothes were not made for me. When I lose weight I lose it in my butt first. I have a great body for swimming. As I have gained weight I look more like an apple or a …

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made.

It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of wast…
