Danny’s father is practicing hosting a Dinner Party, which means I have to go out and be social with the in laws which really freaks me out and I don’t care if there is BBQ, I just wanna hide away!
I’m terrified at the moment
A good chunk of my husband’s family on his father’s side lives in Moore, OK. the town has just been hit by a serious tornado. The images I’m seeing are scaring me. The only person we’ve been in touch with is his aunt. I have no idea about anyone else.
Just…if you’re a praying person, keep them in your prayers, and if not, send good thoughts there way.
So in a stunning move of smoothness, I slipped off my bed while getting ready to spend the night at my parents. I hit my elbow and knee on my left side. They are definitely bruised. I’m in agony right now.
I’m tired, cold, I was forced to go out before I was ready cause my in-laws insisted and I didn’t seem to be given the choice to just stay and hide. I have to be social tomorrow even though I really don’t want to, I won’t get a chance to hide until after supper, and yet I know my husband probably will and will point out that I could but I won’t be able to. This entire family, mine and his, judge me constantly.
I am just waiting for the moment thye come and drag me out of my hidey hole that I am currently in, and make me be social. I don’t want it.
Well I thought I was done with this cold. But it’s back with a vengeance I can’t take a breathe without coughing. My head has so much pressure built that every time I cough it feels like its going to explode. I’ve nearly puked twice this morning from coughing so hard I barely slept. Chris has a thing at school and I can’t go cause I’m feeling like shit
Reasons to say 'fuck you' to the Salvation Army.
“The Salvation Army has refused assistance to gay couples unless they break up and “go straight”, Muslim families who refuse to attend “Christian Bible classes”, kids who can’t prove their immigration status, and more.”
Admittedly, i only skimmed the article, but this quote alone should give you a pretty good idea of how awful they are.
EDIT: I also just learned of this:
Of course, the bigotry of the Salvation Army proved to be deadly towards a transgender woman in Austin, Texas just before Christmas in 2008.
Two years ago today trans woman Jennifer Gale was found dead sleeping on an Austin sidewalk outside a homeless shelter run by the Salvation Army.
because they refused to take her in.
I want everybody to understand what happened here. They refused to take in a trans woman, and she died as a result. They killed a trans woman. Killed. Because they “disagreed with her lifestyle”.
You wanna know why I can’t just be all “oh well, it’s their opinion, they’re entitled to it” when it comes to bigotry? This. This is fucking why.
Perhaps it’s different just because I live in Canada, but I’ve had close contact with the Salvation Army in many many ways and this is hardly a fair look into the entire organization My older sister, who is an openly gay woman worked for Salvation Army for many many years. Her boss, who was a very lovely woman actually gave my sister a ‘coming out’ party when she came out about her sexuality. The woman’s shelter my sister was a front line worker for housed many trans women, treated them all fairly and was perfectly kind and sweet.
It must be different in Canada then, because in the US, it’s standard across the board, to receive help, you MUST sit through a Christian service, you basically have to be converted to Christianity, and you cannot be gay. They give money left and right to DOMA(Defense Of Marriage Act) and support every Anti Gay Legislation. It doesn’t surprise me at all that they would allow a Trans woman to die in the streets for being a “deviant” There’ a reason Danny and I refuse to support them in any form here.
Feel like shit
So day three of feeling like absolute fucking shit, and I have Meet the Teacher night at my kid’s school, yippie. And since Danny has class I have to go by myself. Again, fun times. My mother in law nd I had another fight big surprise, nevermind that I’m sick but focus on the one thing that didn’t get done this weekend. I’ll remember that and hound you about the fucking cat hair you leave everywhere when you’re feeling like shit and trying to get more sleep.
Then she had the nerve to ask me if I wanted a ride to the meeting tonight and I was like, no we were just going to walk thanks. I want nothing to do with you lady, thanks.
My new haircut
O.M.G! YOU LOOK FREAKING ADORABLE!! I LOVE IT HONEY! IT DESERVES CAPS TALK!
Forcing myself to stay awake
So after being up almost twenty four hours, after we got home from the Faire, I went to bed and passed the fuck out. Seriously, I didn’t wake up, I don’t think I moved. I slept through my in laws leaving for a weekend to trip to Oklahoma, which if you’ve heard me talk about, there’s usually arguing and sometimes yelling when they do this. I didn’t wake up again until eight.
Since then I’ve been puttering around online, playing in the MoP beta. Now I’m watching Is it Real on Netflix, hopingto stay awake another hour hour and a half. I have to get back on a night schedule for work on Wednesday, so that’s what I’m trying to do.
Chris, Danny and I went to the Ren Faire after I got off work. I got dragged into the opening act. Once inside I rented a costume and away we went. Didnt’ get too many pictures, but I had to show off my Pirate Wenchy self and Chris playing with my rented hat. I think I make a fabulous Pirate Wench.
You make a sexy pirate wench honey. And Chris is fricking adorable, as per usual. Did the hubby dress up at all? Please tell me there were leggings involved if he did lol.
He did not. I don’t think he liked te idea of renting a costume,though by fair much cheaper. I think next year I’m going as a fairy, slightly cheaper and less material so cooler over all. Hopefully thanks to the new job, I’ll have lost some weight.
Sims and random stuff that I find interesting. I'm just your average thirty something with too much free time on their hands.
