Passing on a Blog I follow...

I follow a wonderful LDS blogger from Las Vegas.  She is a musician and a doctrinal whiz and has the wittiest sense of humor.  Plus, her kids are basically the ages of my children and her adventures are so similar.  I can laugh many times at what I immediately found to be the most irritating situation I had ever epxerienced as a mother. 

Today, I stopped by her blog and her post was not the usual fun and witty essay.   She wrote a very straightforward, very honest and yet expressive post on how she feels about some of the political commentary taking place in amongst ourselves in our places of worship - more importantly how we are treating others on the opposite sides of the political spectrum in our own community.  Since I have been the recipient of, heard the same words spoken and felt the same indigation she expresses in her blog, I want to pass it on.  You do not know what her political persuasion is (which is as it should be)... So please, if you read anything this year in the blogger world - read this.

Update on the Endings and Beginings

So on the "I Promise to myself to do" list:
I have accomplished a few (without any hiccups, I might add):

2a - done. I was spurred on rather quickly by the announcement that Passport fees could go up and up and up…. They are already darn expensive. So we did it, out the door, on their way and before April 17, will have one in hand. YIPEE!

2b - done, or should I say on its way. The short crop is gone. A short angled bob in the interim to the long bob. More soccer momish than hippish, but I have relented!

3. In the planning stages. Now if the whole job issue thing would iron itself out, we could really get down to the nuts and bolts of planning!

5. I HAVE SO gotten over feeling bad!

On the "I Promist to Be Better At list:

1. This one is hard. I am averaging once a week, at best.

2. Emma done. Working on Sherlock Holmes. Does watching every Masterpiece Theatre available on DVD count????

5. Pretty good. Sugars still better than last year.

6. I am COMPLETELY unsuccessful at restrained eye rolling though. I give up!

By the way - haven’t had a cream puff since January!
