The Times They Are A-Changin'

Come gather 'round people

Wherever you roam

And admit that the waters

Around you have grown

And accept it that soon

You'll be drenched to the bone.

If your time to you

Is worth savin'

Then you better start swimmin'

Or you'll sink like a stone

For the times they are a-changin'.

There has been a lot of change in the around me lately. Dear friends parting ways, new members joining the family, babies that aren't really babies anymore.

There are happy changes, like baby stumbling her way to me taking what are some of her first steps. It amazes me how fast they grow. There are dress shopping excursions for a wedding that I'm excited about like it's mine. Son's getting older and "taking care" of his sick parents. He even offered to take the baby to school because we were too sick to take care of her.

There is also sad change. Some I am sure I will never fully understand. People show you what they want you to see, and sometimes you can't see the signs that are clearly there until after it's too late. Most of us don't want to see the bad possibilities in the future. Even still, we take it in and process, and do whatever we can to be there for those that need us, because they would do it for us.

Things go in cycles, there are weddings, babies, divorces, and death. I'd like to say there are more of the first 2 then last, but it's not always the case. Either way, there is always change.

My little piece of crazy

So, everyone in my family has their own form of crazy. It spans from OCD to other things. I've always considered myself one of the more "normal" people, though some would consider that an insult. One of my family once told me they chalked up my calmness to the pills I'm on. I don't know what I think about that. I do have my quirks though. I won't list them, I bet some of you can name them better than I can.

One thing I'm a little nuts with is reading. I don't read a ton, but I've read a good smattering of stuff ranging from Shakespeare to Political comedies, to my most well know love of fantasy. I don't read a ton because I get completely submersed in a book. I can't just pick it up and put it down causally over a week. I usually finish a book in a day or two. It's even worse when it's a series. I read the Hitchhikers series so fast I couldn't' tell you what was in each book. I also have found that fantasy is often written in trilogies, which makes it even harder. The books are long and I could spend 10 hours a day reading. The fam doesn't like it very much. Anyway. . . back to reading.

I'm addicted to Facebook games

Well, honestly, I'm addicted to most computer games, but the facebook games have taken over recently. They are fun, mindless games. I like to fight cyber-people and run restaurants, even farms (who'd of guessed). Gotta go play. . .

So today is the 40th Anniversary of the moon landing. One of the girls at work said her husband is skeptical about it. I'm hoping she was kidding, but you never know. I told her I was skeptical about the whole Jesus being god's son thing, but it didn't go over well.

On a side note. I love Mythbusters. They are debunking all the anti-moon landing myths. It's such a good show. I hear it's up for an Emmy. Well deserved. I like to watch shows with Trev that teach you something. Talk about the whole taking something you love and getting someone to pay you for it, taken to the next level. Now if I could just figure out what it is I love so I can get someone to pay me for it, suggestions (and I've thought about getting paid to read teen literature, it won't work).

I'm addicted to reality TV

Not all of it, but most. There is something about seeing real people suffer, that trips my trigger. I like the summer because it's got a lot of reality. I even watch some of the sudo-reality, semi scripted TV. I miss one of the best shoes, that they axed, The Mole. It was a quality show. It let us play along. I do hate the all=star seasons. After your 10 minutes is up, it's up. Stop trying for more. The only exception is the real world/ road rules challenges. I like them better than the real show most of the time. We even watched AI for the first time this year. It was pretty good. I guess it appeals to me because it's family friendly too. Trev likes to watch shows with me. We even watch a animates "reality" show. It got us a trivia answer this year. Anyway, Big Brother is about to start, gotta go.

I hate California

Seriously, nothing good has come from a conversation about California lately. Stupid Eric seems to have to go there for work all the time. The thing is, it's far. The flights take a long time, and he's gone for a long time. I hate it when he travels for work. Even worse, the absolute worse time for him to go was the beginning of next week for me, but of course that's what worked for everyone else, so he's going. Guess what, no one else is going now. AHHHHHH!!! I wish we had separate money so I can make him buy me something nice.

Maybe someday I will get to go to Cali too. Maybe some day my work will send me out of the state, doubt it. Maybe someday he will be able to send one of the guys on his team. Maybe someday he will make so much money that I can hire help. Argh.

I've lost my child

So, we stopped in SP on the way home to drop some stuff off my sister and fam left at our house a couple weekends ago and we lost a child to them. He REALLY wanted to go to Rafi's water park, and we didn't have time to stay all day, so they kept him. It must be nice not to have to work in the summer, you can just take kids in for a few days. I use to do it all the time when I was a kid. I'd spend about a week each summer with my aunt and uncle and their kids. Trev's a little harder with the food thing, but maybe they'll break him. I'm okay with that. It's weird loosing a kid, you'd think you would have some freedom, but we still have the little moose so the house is just a little bit quieter. It's good for him.
