You’re not good, you’re not bad, you’re just nice!

After watching the movie "Into the Woods" I downloaded the soundtrack from Amazon. I was really in love with the music. But as I was driving around in my truck listening to the words I was really taken-a-back by them. There is one scene in which the witch sings to the villagers, "you're so nice,… Continue reading You’re not good, you’re not bad, you’re just nice!

I went to see Star Wars: Rogue One the other night and I can't stop thinking about the plot of the whole series. The whole good vs evil, right from wrong and where the line is drawn. There were plenty of people who were living in the Empire that were just living their lives as… Continue reading DON’T GIVE IN TO THE DARK SIDE

Love begets love

I was watching some horrible videos on Aleppo the other day and my boyfriend asked me why I bother to watch such horrible things. They are so depressing, why do I put myself through that?

Pope says we’re turning to shit!

So the Pope thinks Americans are obsessed with shit... not in the literal sense, but he uses it as a metaphor. He said that America's preoccupation with all the useless, garbage, and down right fake news is the same as people with a fetish for poop. I can't say that I disagree. The Kardashians are… Continue reading Pope says we’re turning to shit!

Santa, bully!

I read an article today about a 9 year old boy getting fat shamed by Santa. I couldn't believe it. I mean I'm all about trying to get and stay healthy and feel that this country is out of control with #bodypositive excuses to enable obesity, but there is a time and a place. Santa… Continue reading Santa, bully!

Serendipity on a Snow day

We have all had those days. The days when we had sooo much on our plate, and yet... TV is so much more interesting. Yesterday was one of those days for me. I woke up to a fresh layer of snow on the ground and my 3 year old begging to go out and play.… Continue reading Serendipity on a Snow day
